And The Real “Fairytale” Is……..?

Many non-Christian people that don’t believe in the bible are oftentimes touting it off as some “big fairytale” that all Christians believe in. To them, the fact that there could be such thing as “intelligent design” sounds absolutely preposterous!

Even many Christians THEMSELVES today don’t believe in the 100% accuracy of the bible, which I find really, really sad! ;(

Many people (Christians included) claim the reason they don’t believe the bible is because they tout the theory of Evolution, which claims that all men evolved from apes/ape-like creatures.

Okay, let’s examine the theory of Evolution and dwelve into some Microgenetics in more detail…..

The theory of Evolution claims that men “evolved” from apes/an “ape-like” ancestor.

However, that brings to mind SEVERAL QUESTIONS:

1). If all men came from “apes”, then who or what created the apes? Did they all come from a fish? A single bacterium? Drop out of the sky? Certainly someone or SOMETHING had to’ve created them, right? And if man and ape “had a common ancestor”, where is the actual “scientific evidence” (fossil-wise) OF that common ancestor? Who or what created the “common ancestor”?

2). If men evolved FROM apes, why do apes still exist? Certainly, “survival of the fittest” suggests that all “weak apes that weren’t sophisticated enough to evolve” would’ve bit the dust by now, right?

3). Where’s all the MILLIONS of inter-generational fossils that Darwin said “must be found, if his theory were to hold true?” Scientists have yet to find a SINGLE one……not to mention the one that scientists “claimed” they found – “Ida” (the bones of a LEMUR) – actually turned out to be FAKE –

as evidenced HERE:

and HERE:

http://www.theguardian.com/science/2009/oct/21/fossil-ida-nature-magazine-revelation

4). Darwin himself stated that if any, and I do mean ANY “complex organs” were found in single-celled bacteriums, that his theory of Evolution would “hold no water”. Well guess what, folks? EYES are the most complex organ of any living organism! And scientists have most recently discovered that single-celled bacteriums did in fact have “EYES”!

5). Science proves that mutations are actually BAD. Look at what Trisomy 23 does to kids or all the poor, unfortunate people born with 2 heads or 7 fingers. Certainly, genetic mutations can’t always be a GOOD THING!

6). There’s a LACK of lab evidence of organisms “evolving”.

7). Humans should STILL be evolving today, if Evolution were true. Humans should be FLYING, have WINGS, be able to teleport, etc. ALL humans, or a good majority of humans should be teleporting, sprouting wings, time traveling, mind reading, exhibiting telekinesis and flying, etc. We should also have technology that’s WAY more advanced than just the mere “automobile” and “cell phone”, etc.

8). The laws of physics, astronomy, biology, mathematics, genetics actually BACKS up the “creation account” talked about in Genesis. There was such a thing called THE CAMBRIAN EXPLOSION. Complex life just seemed to come out of nowhere ALL AT ONCE, according to the TRUE scientific record. And in the digged up fossil layers, there’s NO simple organisms at the bottom, they’re ALL complex forms. Every. Single. One. It’s been proven the case with ALL fossils. Heck, they’ve even found dinosaur bones with CARBON and SOFT TISSUE still inside. (YES, TISSUE!)

They have since then “tried to explain it away” as “iron preservative”, but if that be so, I guess humans and animals (those that are not cremated upon death, that is) would no longer need to be embalmed with formaldehyde, as we could just let our “iron deposits” do it FOR us, correct?

9). This brings to mind my next point. Evolutionists say the Earth is MILLIONS of years old. But science actually “hints” otherwise. Science actually suggests we have a YOUNG EARTH. For example:

  • DNA found in “ancient bacterium” and in fossils.
  • The ages of the world’s oldest living organisms, trees, are consistent with an age of the earth of thousands of years.
  • Thick, tightly bent strata without sign of melting or fracturing. E.g. the Kaibab upwarp in Grand Canyon indicates rapid folding before the sediments had time to solidify (the sand grains were not elongated under stress as would be expected if the rock had hardened). This wipes out hundreds of millions of years of time and is consistent with extremely rapid formation during the biblical Flood.
  • Observed examples of rapid island formation and maturation, such as Surtsey, which confound the notion that such islands take long periods of time to form.
  • Water gaps. These are gorges cut through mountain ranges where rivers run. They occur worldwide and are part of what evolutionary geologists call ‘discordant drainage systems’. They are ‘discordant’ because they don’t fit the deep time belief system. The evidence fits them forming rapidly in a much younger age framework where the gorges were cut in the recessive stage / dispersive phase of the global Flood of Noah’s day
  • Evolutionists point to stalactites in caves as proof of an old earth, but there are stalactites in the basement of the Lincoln Memorial several feet long that have grown in less than 100 years.
  • Evidence of recent volcanic activity on Earth’s moon is inconsistent with its supposed vast age because it should have long since cooled if it were billions of years old.
  • Jupiter’s larger moons, Ganymede, Io, and Europa, have magnetic fields, which they should not have if they were billions of years old, because they have solid cores and so no dynamo could generate the magnetic fields.
  • Human population growth. Less than 0.5% p.a. growth from six people 4,500 years ago would produce today’s population. Where are all the people? if we have been here much longer?
  • Origin of agriculture. Secular dating puts it at about 10,000 years and yet that same chronology says that modern man has supposedly been around for at least 200,000 years. Surely someone would have worked out much sooner how to sow seeds of plants to produce food.
  • The frequency of world cultural stories of an earth-destroying flood.
  • Comets: As comets travel through space they continually shed some of their material. Any comet more than 10,000 years old would have long since disintegrated into nothing.
  • Earth’s magnetic field is getting weaker. At the rate of deterioration, no such field would exist if the earth were as old as evolutionists believe.
  • Petroleum in the ground is under tremendous pressure. The rocks that contain it are porous. If the oil had been there for millions of years the pressure would have dissipated long ago.
  • The oldest living plants, the bristlecone pine tree and the coral reefs only go back about 4500 years. If earth had existed for millions of years, why aren’t there older plants still alive?
  • Ocean salt: Now at 3.8 per cent, the salinity of the oceans would have been much greater. The present rate of increase points back to a beginning about six thousand years ago.
  • Earth’s rotation is slowing at the rate of one thousandth of a second per day. At this rate a billion years ago it would have been spinning so fast that centrifugal force would have caused it to fly apart. OR……at the current rate of slowing, if the Earth were millions of years old, the Earth would’ve well STOPPED SPINNING ENTIRELY by now, think about it, folks! 
  • The planet Saturn is losing its rings. They are slowly moving away. If the planet were millions of years old, the material in the rings would have dissipated long ago.
  • The planets are losing heat. If they had been formed millions of years ago, they would have no internal heat left given the present rate of heat loss. If a hot cup of coffee were left standing for 400 years, it would have no internal heat left.
  • The Tower of Babel account affirmed by linguistics

  • Plus many, many more!!!

10). DNA that is SO complex & SO varied among the species. DNA is SO varied among species that it’s not even possible for ALL living things to come from a “common ancestor”. [But even if it did — purely theoretically speaking — where did such “common ancestor” come from, like I said? A fish that fell outta the sky? A single bacterium that just seemed to “magically know” how to transform into apes, fish AND humans?] 

There’s also such things as “tour guide” cells, proof-reading cells, “repairman” cells, doctor cells, mortician cells, “active military” cells, taxi cab driver/transport cells, “post office worker” cells, teacher cells, etc. How does DNA know WHAT proteins to bind with and WHEN? To turn itself ON and shut itself OFF? How do amino acids know WHAT proteins to bind with and WHAT type of cell they’re supposed to become? Right……it all just happens by “random chance”, doesn’t it? And when we get a cut on our finger, cells just “randomly” come to the rescue, right? Wrong!

There’s obviously SOME sort of “communication” going on between the cells in the body! Like when immune cells need to call up the “cop cells” for extra help fighting off infections? How DO immune cells “recruit nearby cells” in the fight?

Think about how we humans would communicate over a loudspeaker system: “hey guys, we’re getting a little over-whelmed here in the battle to fight the enemy, can ALL nearby active AND off-duty military please report to your post? Repeat: can ALL nearby active AND off-duty military please report to your post?” How are CELLS able to do the exact same thing? They must have SOME way of communicating back and forth with one another. And that all just happens by RANDOM CHANCE? Lets get real here, folks!!!!!

And that just BARELY scratches the surfaces of all the major HOLES in Evolutionary “theory”!!!! But for the sake of time and space, I’ve narrowed it down a bit.

Not to mention: 

  • If the Earth’s axis were tilted just ONE degree, life on Earth would not be possible.
  • If the moon were any closer to Earth, there would be HUGE tidal waves. If the Sun were any closer to the Earth, we’d all be scorched to death. If the “elements” were any different, life wouldn’t exist. And if any of the “stars” were closer to Earth, we’d be toast. 

Today, I submit to you with 100% confidence in my mind, heart, body and spirit that EVOLUTION, ATHEISM and BIG BANG THEORY are the true “fairytales”. For it takes FAR more faith to believe everything in the universe “just happened by mere chance” than to believe in “intelligent design”.

And for those who believe that Evolution was God’s Plan?

Well, the bible doesn’t back that up but instead backs up intelligent design. Just take a good look at nature (specifically, snowflakes for example). No two snowflakes are the same. Every single snowflake has a completely DIFFERENT and HIGHLY COMPLEX geometric pattern. If Evolution were “true”, we’d atleast expect to find atleast TWO snowflakes (at the bare minimum) that had somewhat of a “similar pattern”. But instead, we find just the OPPOSITE! The complex, differential patterns of snowflakes (EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.) just SHOUT of “intelligent design”. And that is just ONE example……..there’s many, many more that I won’t include for the sake of space and time.

Heck, even Jesus Christ himself said in Luke 19:37-40 “And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said unto them, I TELL YOU THAT, IF THESE SHOULD HOLD THEIR PEACE, THE STONES WOULD IMMEDIATELY CRY OUT”.

Therefore, if intelligent design is true, then that could only mean that God’s written word is true, and if the written word of God is true, then that means that the book of Genesis is true and if the book of Genesis is true, then that pretty much throws Evolution out the window and proves Evolution to NOT be true. It’s been a couple thousand years since the birth of Christ. Don’t you think we would’ve found those “millions” of inter-generational fossils by NOW, had they existed?

Not to mention there have now been found alleged drawings of dinosaurs in ancient art. Certainly, if dinosaurs had died out before humans, ancient humans wouldn’t even have KNOWN what they looked like, correct? How could ancient humans have drawn them so ACCURATELY, just as we see their reconstructed skeletons, TODAY? Plus THE GREAT FLOOD DURING TIME OF NOAH (ironically enough) would actually ACCOUNT for the SUDDEN MASS DEATH of the dinosaurs AND for the fact of “ancient humans” knowing EXACTLY what dinosaurs looked like in their ancient drawings! I’m dead serious on this, folks! Laugh me to oblivion all you want to, skeptics, but that still doesn’t change God’s eternal truth! 

The answer to life’s “scientific questions” are right there, right in front of us, always have been and always will be but many people (specifically, some skeptics and many scientists, don’t want to see!) They keep vainly searching for every OTHER answer than the ones given in the bible and their efforts are proving (and will always prove) to be in vain! GOD HAS ALREADY GIVEN US ALL THE ANSWERS, FOLKS, LIKE IT OR NOT!!!!!

Many people seem to forget that “science” (when it tries to disprove God/the bible) has been proven wrong, time and time again! “Spontaneous generation”, remember THAT theory? One out of SEVERAL proven-to-be-false theoretical examples? lol.

However, ironically enough, whenever science tries to “prove” the bible, it actually lines up with the bible PERFECTLY…..

Like the scientist who found Egyptian chariot wheels in the red sea, for instance:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lzb4ekyX1kc

Proof of the Book of Exodus

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnMwW-GAKvA

or the other scientist(s) who found what are believed to be the remains of Noah’s Ark in Ankara, Turkey

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFoqX6aWzFM

And quite honestly, that scares alot of folks! Why? Because if the bible’s true, then that means that things are NOT in their control but God’s control! And if things are in God’s control, that means that heaven and hell are both real and if both heaven and hell are real (and I assure you 100% that they ARE), that means that God’s judgement is real and if God’s judgement is real, then that means they must submit to Almighty Yeshua/Hebrew Jesus Christ or else “be condemned for eternity”! And if that terrifies the socks off of you, that’s actually a GOOD thing! For it means the Holy Spirit of the Lord is AT WORK in you right now, trying to spiritually convict you of your previous unbelief and to draw you closer to HIM (the one and only true eternal God of the bible!)  

Not to mention that many books of the bible reference Genesis. In fact, Genesis is considered to be one of THE MOST important books of the bible, next to Revelation. Therefore, if one doesn’t believe in Genesis, why does one even believe in the bible AT ALL? (Can I humbly and rationally ask that question?)

And if one doesn’t truly believe the ENTIRE bible or much of anything IN the bible, then what is the whole point of one even BEING a “Christian”? (Can I humbly and rationally ask that question, as well?) Because either the bible is all true or it isn’t. You can’t pick and choose what “parts” of the bible to believe and what “parts” NOT to believe, as God doesn’t work that way!

Because as soon as you remove Genesis from the bible, the rest of the bible would then become “obsolete/deactivated”, as that would then further suggest that Yeshua/Hebrew Jesus was a liar and also that He died and was resurrected IN VAIN. Also: if you were to remove Revelation from the bible, then ALL previous books of the bible would have no meaning, value or purpose. Because essentially, ALL books of the bible make up THE WHOLE. Remove just ONE part of the bible and you have an INCOMPLETE bible and an INCOMPLETE TRUTH of God! 

Hosea 4:6 states: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children”.

How would YOU feel if you wrote a powerful, riveting, personal autobiography of your life and someone (particularly, someone that “claimed” to love you unconditionally and be your loyal friend or family member) came along and said “well, I believe chapters 2, 3, 7 and 8 but I DON’T believe chapters 1, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 10, I think those parts are just made up!”, how would YOU feel? 

You’d feel dejected and hurt, right?

So it is with God Almighty/Yeshua/HEBREW Jesus Christ everytime someone says “well, I believe THESE parts of the bible but NOT those parts!” It’s like a personal slap in God’s face! Because he used the Holy-spirit-inspired writings of all his prophets so that we (humans) could come to know him. The Bible (The Old AND New Testament) is like the Lord’s own personal autobiography of himself, his judgement/rewards and his creation. Therefore, WHO is mortal man (in general, as a whole) to decide what parts of the account of the written testimony of God “are true” and what parts aren’t? That’s pretty bold and arrogant thinking on our parts to think we know better than God, is it not?  

And in closing: Revelation 21-22 is NO MADE-UP FAIRYTALE for all those who trust and believe in the Lord & his 100% eternal truth in the bible [the COMPLETE bible, front to back!] For them, it will become their eternal REALITY! 😉

IF you are one of those folks that doesn’t believe in the 100% accuracy of the bible, the evidence for the bible’s 100% truth, FRONT TO BACK, is ALL AROUND YOU, if you’re willing to seek it and find it. 

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you”   Matthew 7:7

From Christian to Messianic/Jewish roots Christian

What very first began the journey for me was the day I was sitting on the living room couch in the apartment, re-reading a children’s illustrated bible that a relative had gotten for me when I was little. [And this particular bible has *specific* sentimental value to me since it is THE bible that was given to me not long after I had a near-death experience where I met Yeshua/Jesus Christ for the very first time in my life, with no previous knowledge of him]. 

Anyways, as I was sitting there joyfully re-reading my favorite parts out of that particular children’s illustrated bible, a peaceful breeze blew through the apartment and a soft, still voice said/whispered to me”Yeshua”.

I said “what?” It said/whispered to me once more “Yeshua”. And then a sudden understanding dawned upon me. This was the HEBREW/ARAMAIC name for Jesus! I was excited! I was happy! I had just had an encounter with the Holy Spirit of God and I felt truly blessed! 😉

So I was one step closer to the truth at that time. I knew Jesus’s Hebrew/Aramaic name was Yeshua but at point in time, that was about ALL I knew, around the year 2001-2007 or so? My mom was raised Lutheran and my dad was raised Methodist but they had both pretty much abandoned the Christian faith in their adult years, so I had no real spiritual grounding, while growing up. And though I had read the “official” bible (the Holy Bible that’s in churches), IN ADDITION to the bible given to me as a child, there were still alot of things about Jesus Christ/Yeshua that I didn’t quite understand.

And though I wanted and longed to go to a Christian church, I didn’t feel spiritually grounded or knowledgeable enough to be around other Christians “that have been going to church their whole lives”. I went to Lutheran services a time or two but felt out of place, like I didn’t belong there, like something was missing. And the only other place I had to turn to for spiritual advice was my bestfriend, who was Catholic and I knew there was something “odd” about the Catholic faith back then but I didn’t know exactly what, at the time. So I gave up going to church altogether and several years went by, with me sporadically reading/studying my King James Version bible at home.

And then, in the last four years or so, I had, for some reason, become PARTICULARLY interested in researching WHAT it was about the Catholic Church that was wrong, since it was nagging and eating away at me, on the inside. And after doing lots of research, I finally found out what it was about the Catholic Church that was WRONG/FALSE! And it set my soul at ease, just being able to know the truth about it. But I still had many unanswered questions about Jesus’s true role with the Old Testament, since I knew that Jesus was a Jew.

And it was only within the last year or so that I had become HIGHLY INTERESTED in learning about the JEWISH ROOTS OF CHRISTIANITY and it was there, during that time, that the Lord Jesus/Yeshua finally revealed his truth to me. The truth about the TRUE SABBATH (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown: 3 stars visible in the sky) and about HOW and WHY the Old Testament (Torah) still applies! And about WHY I (as well as all other Christians) must STILL participate in the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) And about WHY Christians should NOT celebrate the Pagan holidays of Christmas, Easter, New Years, St. Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Birthdays!

But I WILL say this! After I had changed my “point of availability” at my work so I wouldn’t have to work on Shabbat/The Sabbath, (which remember, begins Friday evening at sundown), I’ve have COUNTLESS ATTEMPTS by people trying to get me to work on the Sabbath (Friday evenings & sometimes asking me to work on Saturday) giving me any NUMBER of excuses as to why they wanted me to work on the Sabbath and it used to happen at my work practically EVERY SINGLE WEEK! It was MADDENING! The Devil and his demonic representatives were TRULY trying to keep me from worshiping on the Lord’s TRUE Sabbath (Friday SUNDOWN to Saturday sundown!) Which only serves as FURTHER EVIDENCE to me that YES! Friday sundown to Saturday sundown IS the Lord’s true Sabbath!

A couple of my Christian friends think that I’m “superstitious”  or “in the wrong” for wanting to follow the ORIGINAL Jewish roots of Christianity but I know in my heart and soul that the Old Testament (Torah) applies just as much TODAY as it did yesterday in the days of Old. But today’s Christians (in general) have SO many arguments about why they “think” the Old Testament no longer applies. But in Matthew 5:17-18, Yeshua/Jesus Christ has THIS to say: Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”. [Everything won’t be fulfilled until the very END of the Book of Revelation — which is chapter 22!]

I will admit I’m STILL in the process of learning more about specific practices that must take place on the Sabbath/Shabbat and the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord. Like, for a Passover meal, for example, there’s things called a Seder Meal/Plate, Kiddish Cup, etc. And since I wasn’t born and raised in the Jewish faith, or any faith in particular, it’s hard for me to find good resources out there that tell me how to celebrate such holidays. The website http://www.hebrew4christians.com provides some pretty good information on the history of the Jewish holidays and learning Hebrew language, etc.

There’s also a couple of good books that I’m reading right now that shed some light on the subject. But they still don’t give specifics (as far as I know) about WHAT type of modern-day material can be used to construct the dwelling for Feast of Tabernacles (if any). Then again, I’m still only in the very beginning chapters, as of right now. But so far, they are both some VERY good reads! [P.S.: If there’s any other fellow Messianic Jews out there who can give me more information about the challah, kiddish cup, seder meal, etc, please let me know – Thanks!]
