It Is Just Pure Chance (Part VI)

Article#: 1178

For the vast majority of the world, proving that there is a god, or some supreme being, is a relatively easy thing.  That is not the critical challenge and Satan is fully aware of it.  Establishing that the God of the majority-text Bible is THE God is the task, and yes, Satan knows it.  In the third chapter of Genesis, a second voice is heard in the garden—Satan’s voice—and it challenged the Word of God.  Unfortunately for mankind, in an act of unbelief and disobedience, Grandmother Eve ate the fruit.  Since that devastating day, unbelief and disobedience have ruled the hearts and minds of carnaldom.  Consequently, sin and death have been the results.

It has often been stated on this website, and it surely needs repeating, that for over 6,000 years Satan has harnessed the world’s greatest minds to challenge and attack the Word of God.  He and his entourage have failed time after time, after miserable time.  The philosophers have challenged.  The world’s theologians have challenged.  The revisionist historians have challenged.  Pseudo-science has challenged, etc.  Failure, sin, and death have been their only results.

Jesus said, concerning the Father, in John 17:17:

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Have you been born again?  Are you ready for the life transformation of all time?  Would you like to have all your sin and shame expunged from your record?  Would you like to personally speak to God today and find His peace that passes understanding?  GodSaidManSaid has good news for you.  Today is your day of salvation.  Click onto “Further With Jesus” for childlike instructions and immediate entry into the Kingdom of God.  NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, Psalms 19:7-11:

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11  Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

MAN SAID:  According to George Wald in Biological Science: An Inquiry Into Life: “If life comes only from life, does this mean that there was always life on the earth?  It must, yet we know that this cannot be so.  We know that the world was once without life—that life appeared later.  How?  We think it was by spontaneous generation.”

Note: spontaneous generation is indiscernible from pure chance.

Now THE RECORD.  Surely we have considered their positions of unbelief.  We understand the material, but have found their positions vacuous and untenable.  They claim Bible history is exaggerated and false.  They claim the Bible’s prophecies are vague and convoluted.  They claim Bible commandments are outdated and empty of any real value.  They claim there is no God, and consequently the writings of the Bible are simply the rants of mere men.

GodSaidManSaid presently hosts 476 features.  Every Thursday eve, God willing, it grows by one.  These features, archived in text and streaming audio, prove the full veracity of Holy Writ – every single verse.  The Word of God is absolutely blinding, dazzling, and enlightening, but only the children can enter in.

When skeptics are confronted with a staggering truth in the Bible they attempt to hide in the tall grass of pure chance or “just a coincidence.”  This is Part VI in the ongoing series titled, “It Is Just Pure Chance.”  This series is designed to reveal the absurdity of their denial.  In this week’s feature, we will highlight a marvelous truth of the Word of God, note man’s position, and list a GodSaidManSaid feature or two for your perusal.  Are you ready for shock and awe?  Let’s go!

In the original creation (Genesis 1) God created a water canopy above the sky that encompassed the earth.  He cast it down in the days of Noah.  The scientific model constructed on these facts demonstrates that this water canopy would have yielded very long life to the inhabitants of earth.  One reason is that it blocked the ultraviolet killer rays from the sun which have been associated with at least 60 diseases. 

• It’s “just a coincidence,” in light of this truth, that when confronted with the devastation caused for astronauts by long exposure to UV rays, that one scientist offered the solution of encasing the human outerspace project in five feet of water.

Adam Was To Live Forever

Noah II

Why Is The Black Man Black And White Man White?

• It’s “just a coincidence” that the Bible teaches that Adam was made out of dirt, and that the following paragraph is found on GodSaidManSaid:

The ancient Miautso people of China have chronicled their lineage back to Japheth, the son of Noah, and from there all the way back to the world’s first man, whom their genealogical record calls “Dirt.”  Author E. Traux, in an article titled “Genesis According To The Miao People,” again renders the original Miautso name in the following quote: “It is clearly meant to portray Adam, the version of whose name in the Miautso language (as in Hebrew, Akkadian and so on), means earth or clay, the substance from which he was created.”  [End of quote]

Man From Dirt Updated

• The consensus in the days of Christopher Columbus (of which he was not a part) was that the world was flat.  It’s “just a coincidence” that Columbus said that his inspiration to discover the western hemisphere was the writings of the Bible prophet Isaiah who wrote, “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:” (Isaiah 40:22).  God sits upon the circle of the earth.

Round Earth and Christopher Columbus

He Stretched His Tent Over Us

• Years ago, a gentleman (now in his late 80s) who worked in the bread industry relayed this telling information.  The bakery had storage bins full of ground whole wheat that the rats could not resist.  Once the bread bakers removed the bran and the wheat germ from the flour, the rat problem disappeared.  The rats didn’t eat the white flour.  It’s not a good idea to tamper with God’s products.  It’s “just pure chance” that God’s Word promotes whole wheat, and that the following excerpts were published by the BBC under the heading, “Eat Whole Grain, Live Longer:”

A simple bowl of cereal could reduce the risk of two of Britain's leading killers – heart disease and cancer—by a third, a survey suggests.

A new health campaign called Whole Grain for Health (WGFH) shows consumption of whole grain food could save almost 24,000 lives each year in the UK alone.

The problem is most Britons do not know what whole grain food is, do not eat it and are not aware of the significant health benefits.

The campaign launch comes at a time when the government has put coronary heart disease and cancer at the top of its health agenda.

It aims to cut coronary heart disease and cancer deaths by 35% over the next 10 years.

And more than 50 scientific studies have shown that eating whole grain can reduce risk of heart disease and cancer by up to 30%.

Professor Robert Pickard, director general of the British Nutrition Foundation, said: “Whole grain consumption could have a profound impact on the health of the nation.

“It could certainly help to significantly reduce the incidence of heart disease and cancer and has the potential to save the NHS large sums of money.”

Whole grain means all three parts of the grain are used, including the fibre-rich outer layer and the nutrient-packed germ.  [End of quote]

Whole Wheat – Get In Line!

The Beast of Obesity and God’s Solution

“Just a coincidence.”

• It’s “just pure chance” that God commands (Genesis 17:12) all male children to be circumcised on the eighth day of their life, and that on the eighth day Vitamin K, which causes blood clotting, spikes to its highest level in the human life span.  “Just pure chance.”

Circumcision

Circumcision II

Circumcision III, Why Do They Still Resist?

God commands against bestiality in Leviticus 20:15-16:

15  And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.

16  And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

• It’s “just a coincidence” that the world’s most deadly, communicable disease is venereal disease, and that it is reported the disease was originally contracted by human interaction with animals through bestiality.  The commandment recorded in Leviticus was written nearly 3,500 years ago.  “Just a coincidence.”

Bestiality

Info Briefs Part III

The Biblical minimalists have challenged the dating of the writings of the book of Isaiah because in chapter 44 he wrote the name of the Persian king, Cyrus, who did not come upon the scene for nearly 200 years.  Verse 28 reads:

That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

• It’s “just a coincidence” that the following paragraphs are found on GodSaidManSaid:

Something else has escaped the minimalists concerning the Bible book of Isaiah and its legendary prophecies of King Cyrus.  It is that the history of this issue is thoroughly recorded by Flavius Josephus.  Josephus is arguably the most famous ancient historian of all time and certainly the most read.  Josephus recorded the following:

Thus saith Cyrus the King: — Since God Almighty hath appointed me to be king of the habitable earth, I believe that he is that God which the nation of the Israelites worship; for indeed he foretold my name by the prophets, and that I should build him a house at Jerusalem, in the country of Judea.”  [End of quote]

King Cyrus and the Minimalist

God prophesied in numerous places in the scriptures that Israel, as a result of its sins, would be destroyed and its people scattered to the four corners of the earth, and that in the last days it would once again become a nation, and become central to the very battle of Armageddon and to the end of this world as we know it.  

• It’s “just a coincidence” that for 2,500 years the name of Israel was missing from the index of the world’s nations until 1948 when the name Israel once again appeared on the world’s globe.  “Just pure chance.”

Israel as a Nation

Israel – Garden of God

Nation Building

• It is “just pure chance” that Revelation 6:14 records:

And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

and that one scientist now theorizes that it is possible to tear space.  “Just a coincidence.”

Beauty For Ashes

The entire message concerning the passage just mentioned is recorded in Revelation 6:12-17:

12  And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

13  And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

14  And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15  And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17  For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

This dreadful, terrible day is very near for the world and its inhabitants.  If you haven’t been born again, click onto “Further With Jesus” now.  This is one “coincidence” for which no one can afford to be on the wrong side.

Now you have THE RECORD.
