God Said Man Said

It Is Just Pure Chance (If the Discoveries of Life Seem to Endorse Godís Word)

Amazing truths authored by God in His Holy Bible, written thousands of years before the worldís scientific community began to understand, are proof of the supernatural nature of Holy Writ. Nearly equally as amazing, or should I say, they are conversely one and the same, is that Satan for over 6,000 years has harnessed the worldís brightest carnal minds to challenge and malign, but they have failed consistently and without exception. Be of good cheer, Christians. Your faith is secure. Carnaldomís abject failure will never turn into success. Truth will remain truth.

It Is Just Pure Chance (If the Discoveries of Life Seem to Endorse Godís Word)

Article#: 1167

It has been stated here that real Christians are accused by their critics of making Jesus Christ and His Bible the answer to all of life’s questions and the solution to all of life’s ills. To that accusation, a real Christian will say, “Amen!” This is GodSaidManSaid feature #467. These subjects are archived in text and streaming audio, growing by one, God willing, every Thursday eve. Each one endorses the full, inerrant veracity of the Holy Word of God. Colossians 1:12-19 speaks of God’s only begotten Son, Jesus Christ:

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

He, Jesus Christ, is surely the solution to all your life’s problems. Are you looking for solutions? Are you looking for answers? Are you looking for God’s peace and purpose?

GOD SAID, Proverbs 30:6:

Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

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, Psalms 14:1:

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

MAN SAID: According to evolutionist James Trefil, “Our universe is simply one of those things which happen from time to time.”

Now THE RECORD. Amazing truths, authored by God in His Holy Bible, written thousands of years before the world’s scientific community began to understand, are proof of the supernatural nature of Holy Writ. Nearly equally as amazing—or should I write, they are conversely one and the same—is that for over 6,000 years, Satan has harnessed the world’s brightest carnal minds to challenge and malign, but they have failed consistently and without exception. Be of good cheer, Christians. Your faith is secure. Carnaldom’s abject failure will never turn into success. Truth will remain truth.

Another amazing thing to consider is that when confronted with perplexing contradiction to their anti-god positions, they will write it off as coincidence or pure chance without displaying the faintest blush. The absurdity of their position only elucidates the Lord’s Words in John 3:19-20:

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

In this feature we will highlight a short string of issues that befuddle and are relegated to “coincidence —just pure chance. We will also list a GodSaidManSaid feature or two after each issue for your perusal. May the face of the Lord shine upon you with Light and Truth. Welcome to GodSaidManSaid.

• It’s just a “coincidence” that numerous non-Biblical histories declare a God of creation and His Garden of Eden.

Adam and Eve

The Common Truth

• The following “coincidence” was reported by Discovermagazine, in a feature dubbed, “20 Things You Didn’t Know About Eclipses:”

The beautiful symmetry of a total solar eclipse happens because—by pure chance—the sun is 400 times larger than the moon but is also 400 times farther from Earth, making the two bodies appear the exact same size in the sky. [End of quote]

Anthropic Principle

The Earth To Be Inhabited

• It’s just a “coincidence” that God’s Word teaches that there was light before the fourth day, when He created the sun, and the fact that science now hypothesizes the same. Victor Weisskopf in American Scientist:

Indeed, the Judeo-Christian tradition describes the beginning of the world in a way that is surprisingly similar to the scientific model. Previously it seemed scientifically unsound to have light created before the sun. The present scientific view does indeed assume the early universe to be filled with various kinds of radiation long before the sun was created. [End of quote]

Earth Before the Sun

Starlight and Age of the Universe

• It’s just a “coincidence” that the Bible documents that man was literally made out of dirt and now science confirms the same.

Man From Dirt Updated

Recycled Mud

• Here’s another “coincidence” that the field of microbiology has unearthed which had the world’s staunchest evolutionists scurrying for cover. In their research, the microbiologists discovered that all of mankind walking the earth are descendants of one common mother. Genesis 3:20:

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

Further research also established one common father. What a “coincidence!”

Adam and Eve

Mitochondrial DNA and a Young First Man and First Woman

• It’s just a “coincidence” that Genesis 1:26 reads, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:...” and that science now knows that all the world’s wealth and knowledge could not duplicate the human brain. Imagine that God has created our brains after His likeness. Surely the ground between our ears is the most underdeveloped resource in the universe.

The Superhuman Brain

Wisdom In The Inward Parts

• It’s just pure chance that the Bible teaches, in Genesis 1, that God created a water canopy that originally enveloped the earth. The scientific model reports that such a water canopy, which was cast down in Noah’s day, would have created a greenhouse effect causing even, balmy temperatures around the entire globe. It’s just a coincidence that the north and south poles, which constitute 20% of the earth’s surface, are literally teeming with foliage and creatures normally found in warm comfortable climates, but are preserved in ice and permafrost.

He Stretched His Tent Above Us

North Pole Tropical Discovered Again

• It’s just a coincidence that the Word of God declares that the whole earth was destroyed by a global flood covering the highest mountains by fifteen cubits (Genesis 7:20), and that historians now know that nearly 500 ancient societal (mostly non-Biblical) records of this flood exist. It’s pure coincidence that the Bible records the global flood in the days of Noah (Genesis 7- 9) and that science has discovered fish fossils on every mountain peak, that the fossil remains of the largest sea monster to date was unearthed in Nebraska, and that three quarters of the earth’s surface is covered with flood strata. Just a coincidence.

Noah’s Ark — Fact or Fiction Updated

Floods and the Sea Monster

• It’s pure coincidence that the Bible speaks of the average age of man before the flood to be 911 years and the fact that many non-Biblical historical accounts speak of a common age of 1,000 years.

One Hundred Twenty Years

Historians and 911 Years

• It’s just a coincidence that the Bible describes the concept of DNA (Psalms 139) long before it became one of the greatest scientific discoveries of all time.

DNA, God’s Holy Book

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

• It’s just a coincidence that God’s Old Testament commands in Leviticus 11:7-8 are confirmed by science:

7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.

8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.

Besides sundry maladies which are a product of eating pork, new discoveries now hook eating and handling swine with the deadly Ebola virus and staphylococcus. It’s just a coincidence.

Pigs and Brains

Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday (Update XXXII—Saints, Prepare for Departure)

• It’s just a coincidence that nearly 800 years before the birth of Christ, Isaiah 7:14 prophesied:

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Prophecies of Christ and Proof That God Is

Herod and Pilate

• It’s just a coincidence that nearly 1,000 years before the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the psalmist prophesies in Psalms 22:10-18:

10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.

11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Seventy Weeks of Daniel and The Mystery of the Messiah

The Crucifixion and Resurrection of King Jesus

• It’s just a coincidence that nearly 500 years before the crucifixion, Zechariah prophesies in chapter 11:12-13:

12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.

and that Matthew 26:14-15 and 27:3-8 record the following:

26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,

26:15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.

27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

27:6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

27:7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.

27:8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

• It’s just a coincidence that of the crucifixion, Isaiah prophesies in chapter 53:12:

Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

and that Jesus Christ hung on Golgotha’s hill between two thieves.

The Day Jesus Died

The Dead Speak

• It will be just more pure coincidence that Jesus Christ will soon return to meet the blood-bought in the clouds (I Thessalonians 4). It will just be coincidence that the great, devastating tribulation period will soon strike the earth, and then that Jesus Christ will return to destroy the armies of the wicked at a place called Armageddon. Just more coincidences. Prepare to meet your God.
