He Stretched His Tent Over Us

Article#: 798

As a believer in Christ Jesus, it is preeminently important that the foundation of our faith be secure. The very foundation of the faith is the Bible, the word of God, which was delivered to us by Jesus Christ, who is the Word of God. The prophets, apostles and holy men of God, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit of God, recorded the words. John, chapter 1, verse 1:

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Jesus Christ was the walking Word of the Father. The Lord said in John, chapter 12, verse 49:

49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

Christ was one with the Father through His Father’s Word and it is the Lord’s desire that we enter into this same oneness. John, chapter 17, verses 21-23:

21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

We enter into this oneness through the blood of Jesus Christ (See “Further With Jesus” on this website.) and through adherence to God’s Words. Remember, the foundation of our faith is God’s Word.

Today there are many professing Christians who are manhandling the Word of God—adding to and subtracting from—as if they were dealing with the words of mere men. They are changing the words and in essence destroying the foundation of their faith and the faith of those who follow their pernicious ways. Jesus said in Revelation, chapter 22, verses 18-19:

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things, which are written in this book.

The psalmist declares in chapter 11, verse 3:

3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

It’s time to return to “It is written.” It’s time to replace all opinion with truth. It’s time to return to the majority-text Holy Word of God. NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, Isaiah, chapter 40, verse 22:

22 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:

MAN SAID: The Bible has no supernatural inspiration and the concept of God is no longer relevant to an enlightened society.

Now THE RECORD. People have long called for proof to substantiate God’s existence and further proof to show, that if He does exist, ‘Is He the God of the Bible?’ The answer to both questions is ‘yes.’ At the time of the printing of this feature, there are already over 100 other features on this website that prove the existence of God and that He is the God of the Scriptures—not Buddha, not Allah, not the teaching of Confucius, or others—but Jehovah, the living God of the Bible. Every Thursday, God-willing, a new proof feature is published. God is the God of the Bible.

As a side note, the passage cited in Isaiah 40:22 states, referring to God, “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth.” Two thousand years before Christopher Columbus discovered another large section of the world and proved that the believers in a flat Earth were wrong, God said that the earth was round. When Columbus was asked how he came to the round-earth conclusion, he said that it wasn’t found in maps or research books, but through reading the prophecies of Isaiah in the Bible.

In Isaiah 40:22 it reads: “that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:” Varying in distances of 12 to 18 miles above our heads is found something very rare. It’s Earth’s protective shield, and it makes life on earth possible. We know it as the ozone layer. Science believes that the ozone layer is formed by the interaction of ultraviolet radiation with normal oxygen. God has stretched this ozone layer over our heads like a tent in order to make this earth inhabitable—a place to dwell in.

In some locations on the earth, one could travel as little as 30 miles straight up and be completely through the ozone layer, out of Earth’s atmosphere and actually in outer space. God “stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:”

Man has searched and continues to search deep space with super telescopes, spacecraft, and satellites, searching for a planet that could sustain life—a planet with an atmosphere and a tent like ours—but all of their efforts have produced zero duplicates.

God declares the secrets of life long before modern science began to discover it. God is, and He is “a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6.) He spread His tent over us.

GOD SAID, Isaiah, chapter 40, verse 22:

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:

MAN SAID: The Bible has no supernatural inspiration and the concept of God is no longer relevant to an enlightened society.

Now you have THE RECORD.
