Undeniable Proof—Every Jot and Every Tittle (X)
Topic#: 00897 from WWW.GODSAIDMANSAID.COM

Faith in God is the medium by which all eternal business is transacted.  Faith which worketh by love stands alone.  Faith reigns central to all achievements spiritual and physical. 

 

God has faith – faith in Himself – faith in His own capabilities.  Exodus 3:14:

           

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

 

Jesus Christ has faith – faith in God.  The believer has faith in Christ – even the faith of Christ that proceeds out from him.  Faith is of course a spiritual thing and beautifully defined in Hebrews 11:1:

           

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

 

Access to God is by faith alone.  He is not impressed with wealth or power or strength or beauty or wisdom, but faith alone.  Hebrews 11:6:

 

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

 

It is by faith that salvation is gained.  Romans 10:10:

 

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

Ephesians 2:8-9:

 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

 

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

           

If you are not born again, you might say, “But I have no faith.”  But that’s not true.  All men have been dealt a portion of faith.  Romans 12:3:

 

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

 

The question is: will you activate your faith, which in truth is the most powerful force in the universe?  Presently, your portion of faith is covered with carnal clutter, but that can all change by your own hand even at this moment.  Submit your soul to Christ and allow God to sweep away your unbelief, your confusion, and your bondages.  Truly your childlike portion of faith is ready to be activated.  Click onto “Further With Jesus” now for childlike instructions and immediate entry into Kingdom of God.  Now for today’s subject.

 

GOD SAID, II Kings 20:20:

 

And the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and all his might, and how he made a pool, and a conduit, and brought water into the city, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?

 

GOD SAID, Exodus 20:11:

 

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 

GOD SAID, Job 38:30:

 

The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

 

GOD SAID, Job 38:34-36:

 

34  Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?

 

35  Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?

 

36  Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

 

MAN SAID: Due to our great achievements in science and philosophy, we understand that we live in a post-truth era.  We are liberated from the moral absolutes of the so-called Holy Book and its God.  Might we then shout, “Hallelujah!?”

 

Now THE RECORD.  Welcome to GodSaidManSaid feature article #897, that will once again certify the inerrancy of God’s Holy Word, moral absolutes, miracles, and all.  All of these magnificent features are archived here in text and streaming audio.  May your faith be magnified and your quiver filled with the arrows of truth and love.  Psalm 68:1

 

…Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

 

You and I, let us allow God to arise in our lives.  Let Him arise today.  Let there be an expectation of good.

 

How beautiful are His words, all of His commandments, all of His precepts, and pronouncements.  Every word is “true and righteous altogether” – every single one.  I need to know it.  Everything depends upon it, even eternal life. 

 

This is the tenth feature in the “Undeniable Proof—Every Jot and Every Tittle” series, where in rapid fashion we submit one glorious proof of God and His Bible after another.  Today’s feature begins with proof #111.  Prepare to be edified.

 

#111: II Kings 20:20:

           

And the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and all his might, and how he made a pool, and a conduit, and brought water into the city, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?

 

God’s Word says that Hezekiah, the King of Judah, made a pool and a conduit and brought water into the city.  It also records that Hezekiah stopped the upper watercourse of Gihon and brought it straight down to the west side of the city of David.  Over the years, scholarly skeptics have denounced this account.

 

The following is a picture caption in The Jerusalem Post: “Research has confirmed the biblical account attributing the building of Jerusalem’s Siloam Tunnel to King Hezekiah.”  [End of quote]

 

The following article under the title “King Hezekiah’s Tunnel” was published in The International Jerusalem Post, September 19, 2003:

 

Radiometric tests conducted on the Siloam Tunnel, an underground aqueduct that served as the main water source for ancient Jerusalem, have confirmed that its construction dates back to about 700 BCE, verifying the biblical account that credits its building to King Hezekiah.  The results of the tests, conducted by researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Israel Geological Survey, and Reading University in England, were published last week in the scientific journal Nature.

 

The Siloam Tunnel, a half-kilometer shaft that runs under the walls of Jerusalem to the Gihon springs in the City of David, is one of the capital’s major archaeological tourist attractions.  Its construction has long been credited to Hezekiah, due to a passage in II Kings (20:20) that describes how the biblical ruler “made a pool and a conduit and brought water into the city” when Jerusalem was under siege by the Assyrians.  Hezekiah, according to II Chronicles (32:30), “also stopped the upper watercourse of Gihon and brought it straight down to the west side of the city of David. “This account was strengthened by the discovery in 1880 of an inscription inside the tunnel describing its building in a manner that matches the biblical account.  But the “Siloam inscription” (today held by the Turkish museum) does not give a specific date or name Hezekiah as its builder, and in recent years some scholars have questioned whether the biblical account was accurate.  “There have been theories put forth that the tunnel dates back only to the Hellenistic period, about 200 BCE,” says Dr. Amos Frumkin of the Hebrew University Geography Department.  “However, the carbon-14 tests we carried out on organic material within the plaster of the Siloam Tunnel, and uranium-thorium dating of stalactites found in the tunnel, date it conclusively to Hezekiah’s era, around five centuries earlier.”  [End of quote]

 

#112: Psalm 1:1-3:

 

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

 

But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

 

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.        

 

They call it the inner savant.  Typically, a savant is one who is severely mentally handicapped but has a very phenomenal skill such as in math, or art, or architecture, for example.  But a study was conducted recently in savantism that was exhibited in individuals who had gone through a traumatic experience, such as a blow to the head.  The individuals in the study began to demonstrate savant-like skills yet still maintained normal mental functioning.  The researchers deduced that all of us have an inner savant that was somehow downloaded to us without any formal education, just waiting to be unlocked.  When asked how does one accomplish that short of the blow to the head, the answer in the researchers’ estimation was meditation.

 

#113: Exodus 20:11:

 

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 

When God says, “Yes,” a multitude of skeptics of every stripe arise to shout, “No!”

 

In 1792, the Socialists of France, in their rebellion against the seven-day cyclical pattern of life, instituted a new calendar with a 10-day week.  It created total confusion and was abandoned 14 years later.  In 1929, the Communist leadership of Russia, in an effort to destroy any attachment to the Bible, instituted a five-day week which ended up in the trash can just three years later.  They were operating in the rebellious spirit of the Anti-Christ to come, of whom Daniel prophesied in Daniel 7:25:

 

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

 

It’s surprising that anyone would reject the seven-day week principle when one considers that a lunar month, which is a product of orbit in time and space, houses roughly four seven-day cycles.  Those who suggest the seven-cycle comes primarily from a religious root should be advised that the number seven is not imposed on us from the outside, but from the inside.  This becomes obvious when you note that plants, insects, and animals also have weekly cycles.  The seven-day cycle is not a product of culture, but to the contrary, culture is a product of seven.

 

#114: Job 38:30:

 

The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

 

Writing in the journal Nature, scientists on Wednesday said they had found an elusive mineral pointing to the existence of a vast reservoir deep in Earth’s mantle, 400-600 kilometers (250-375 miles) beneath our feet.

 

It may hold as much water as all the planet’s oceans combined, they believe.

 

The evidence comes from a water-loving mineral called ringwoodite that came from the so-called transition zone sandwiched between the upper and lower layers of Earth’s mantle, they said.

 

Analysis shows that a whopping 1.5 percent of the rock comprises molecules of water.

 

The find backs once-contested theories that the transition zone, or at least significant parts of it, is water-rich, the investigators said.

 

“This sample really provides extremely strong confirmation that there are local wet spots deep in the Earth in this area,” said Graham Pearson of Canada’s University of Alberta, who led the research.

 

“That particular zone in the Earth, the transition zone, might have as much water as all the world’s oceans put together.”

 

Hans Keppler, a geologist at the University of Bayreuth in Germany, cautioned against extrapolating the size of the subterranean water find from a single sample of ringwoodite.

 

And he also said the water was likely to be locked up in specific rocks, in a molecular form called hydroxyl.

 

“The waters are hid as with a stone,…”  Only the creator could know such a thing.

 

#115: Job 38:36:

 

Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

 

God put wisdom in our inward parts.  The feature article was titled, “How Smart is Your Stomach?”  It’s called the belly brain, and it touts over 100 million neurons which line the digestive tract.  Imagine, your belly brain can know something before the brain between your ears knows it.  The concept of gut feeling is known by all.

 

As medical science continues to discover the intricacies of the human anatomy, the more awestruck it becomes.  The following information is from a feature article on this website titled, “DNA, God's Holy Book.”

 

Human DNA is approximately six feet long and so infinitely thin that it is estimated that all the human DNA in the world would fit into one single aspirin tablet.  One gram of DNA molecules could hold as much information as can be contained on a trillion, that's a trillion, CDs.  Only the infinite wisdom of God could create such a marvel of design, order, and miniaturization.

 

Your DNA molecule is a 3.3 billion-letter book, equivalent to 900 Bibles.  God's Word states, "...and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."  Every phenomenal instruction for the construction of your body, starting from a single invisible fertilized egg, is recorded in the DNA strand and that's before any of your body's members existed.  They were all recorded in God's book.

 

How's this for wisdom in the inward parts?

 

The brain is a literal pharmaceutical manufacturing plant and administering medical team all in one.  It creates from the materials at hand a magnificent array of drugs and medications and automatically administers them when needed.

 

God put wisdom in the inward parts.

 

#116: Psalm 4:2:

 

O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.

 

Man was made in the image and likeness, even in the glory, of God just over 6,000 years ago.  But instead, according to the pseudo-science of evolution, we as slime crawled out of some primordial soup.  Some suggest this was all augmented by an overabundance of amoeba dung.

 

Romans 1:22-23:

           

22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

 

23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

 

#117: Job 20:11:

           

His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.

 

There are several scripture passages that address sin and bones.  Who would know such a thing thousands of years before today’s science had arrived?

 

The following excerpts are from Wikipedia.org under the subject heading of "Paleopathology:"

 

Syphilis is a disease classified in a category of Treponemal disease.  This group includes diseases like pinta, yaws, endemic syphilis and venereal syphilis.  These diseases have symptoms that include inflammatory changes in tissues throughout the body.  Initially the infected person may notice an area of inflammation at the site where the bacteria entered the body.  Then the individual can expect more widespread soft tissue changes and lastly the diseases start to affect the bones.

 

Bone changes can be seen in the archaeological record through lesions on the surface on the bone.  In venereal syphilis the bone change is characterized by damage to the knees and joints.  The damaged joints can be the source of infection or they could be damaged because of disruption in the nervous systems and ability to feel.  In the beginning stages of the disease, the bone forms small lesions on the skull and tibiae.  These lesions are caused mostly by inflammation of the marrow.  In the final stages of the disease the bones start to be destroyed.  Lesions that are formed tend to look similar to “worm holes” in the bone and are seen in the skull as well as large bones in the body.  Most of the bone that is destroyed is due to secondary infections.  [End of quote]

 

PBS.org weighed in with the following:

 

Archaeologists have found ancient skeletons with tell-tale signs of syphilis, such as thickening in the lower leg bones and pitting in the skull, at half a dozen sites in England, and also in Italy, Israel, and other locations in Europe.  [End of quote]

 

#118: I Kings 16:30-31:

 

30  And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.

 

31  And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.        

 

This is the Jezebel who killed the prophets of the LORD.  She worshipped Baal, the Phoenician sun-god.  Jezebel taught Israel to commit abominations.  She conspired to have Naboth killed because her husband coveted his field.  She threatened the mighty prophet of God Elijah, because he destroyed 450 of her prophets of Baal, and more.  Is this Jezebel just another piece of ancient folklore, or is God’s Word accurate once again?  The following paragraphs are from a 2008 feature article titled, “Fit For A Queen, Jezebel’s Royal Seal,” published in Biblical Archaeology Review:

 

Belonging to a queen?  Elaborately decorated with symbols and letters, this store seal undoubtedly belonged to a member of the upper class.  The seal was part of a private collection that was donated to the Israel Department of Antiquities in the early 1960s.  Its unusually large size (it is 1.25 inches long), and common Egypto-Phoenician symbols of royalty and divinity strongly suggest that it belonged to a king or queen.

 

The seal bears four letters (YZBL) interspersed around the images.  Although scholars have long recognized the similarity of the inscription to the name Jezebel, they have usually refrained from making a connection to the infamous Queen Jezebel, Phoenician wife of the Israelite king Ahab.  With the reconstruction of two additional letters (L’) in the damaged area at the top, however, author Marjo Korpel argues that the inscription originally read L’YZBL, or “(belonging) to Jezebel” and was in fact the personal seal of the Biblical queen.  [End of quote]

 

The Bible said Jezebel, and archaeology confirms.  God’s Word is a supernaturally reliable history book.

 

God’s Word is the place to build a life that will last forever.  It has never been, nor will ever be controverted.  Be of good cheer saints – your faith is secure.

 

GOD SAID, II Kings 20:20:

 

And the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and all his might, and how he made a pool, and a conduit, and brought water into the city, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?

 

GOD SAID, Exodus 20:11:

 

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 

GOD SAID, Job 38:30:

 

The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

 

GOD SAID, Job 38:34-36:

 

34  Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?

 

35  Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?

 

36  Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

 

MAN SAID: Due to our great achievements in science and philosophy, we understand that we live in a post-truth era.  We are liberated from the moral absolutes of the so-called Holy Book and its God.  Might we then shout, “Hallelujah!?”

 

Now you have THE RECORD.
