Blind Faith???


What is Faith?
The Bible describes Faith: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
(Hebrew 11:1)

What is Science?
Science is systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation; basically the measurement of observation of the known nature.

As Christians we face many challengers that attack our Faith in the True Almighty Father and Creator, YHWH, such as Fallen Angels, Atheists, Agnostic, Gnostics, Sun/Moon/Venus/Saturn worshipers and other perceivers of Intelligence Designers, yet we know the Almighty God is Creator of all things.
(Deuteronomy 11:16-17 / Deuteronomy 17:2-4 / Genesis 1:1)


Our Faith is not Blind, the Almighty’s marvelous works encompass us everyday, regulated to sustain life on Earth in the Universe. Our short human existence on the Earth has discovered, observed and measured the works of the Almighty, yet God is not measurable by our limited modern tools given by the Almighty.

I will give a few examples, of the works of the Almighty through Biblical Science:

Let’s start with our main tool: The brain and body helps us to perceive, translate and observe the world around us. We’ve also discovered bio-mechanics and blood flow through the body. The Bible recognizes the importance of Blood being the source of Life. Up until 120 years ago, sick people were "medically bled" and many died because of the practice.

Leviticus 17:11 ~ For the life of the flesh is in the blood…

Yet many would say, “That’s just simple observation. No Blood, No Life.”

So let’s take another tool of perception; Sound, did you know that Radio Waves which are completely invisible and undetectable to humans (without a machine) moves at the speed of light? This is why we have instantaneous wireless communication. In the Bible Book of Job, God introduces the concept of Electricity creating Radio Waves to transmit Sound which was written over 3,200 years ago.

Job 38:35 ~ Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?

Staying with Energy; in the First Law of Thermodynamics it states, “Neither matter nor energy can be either created or destroyed.”

In the first Book of the Bible; Genesis 2:1 states, “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.” When you break down the scripture, the “heavens” is energy and “earth” is matter. Creation of Energy and Matter is complete it is "finished" exactly as the Bible states. So when Matter decay it develops into Energy. In other words, E = MC2 - Energy and Mass are equivalent, as Einstein proposed in his Special Theory of Relativity in 1905, proved as of 2008. Yet Energy can’t create matter, not with out help. That’s why the Big Bang Theory is still a THEORY.

Deuteronomy 10:14 – “Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD's thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.”

The Earth the most unique planet in the known Universe, it holds intelligent living beings. It’s also round and suspended in space by nothing, yet just centuries ago, the Learned Greeks thought the Earth was FLAT and was being held in the heavens by Atlas the Greek god. The Bible had the answer, for centuries, even before the Greeks.

Isaiah 40:21-22:
“…It is *he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers…” (*YHWH)

Job 26:7:
“He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.”

Our Air Flow Weather Pattern and Evaporation were explained before man-made electronic instruments of measurements.

Ecclesiastes 1:6-7:
“The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.”

Job 36:27-28:
“For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.”

Amos 9:6
“It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his *troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.” (*water vault)

As we were taught in school about High Pressure System, the circular movement of warm air rising and cold air sinking is called Convection where cold air sinks, warms, and then rises and cools and sinks back down again. Evaporation is an essential part of the Water Cycle, the solar energy drives evaporation of water from oceans, lakes, etc. Then water molecules turn into water vapor which rises up and forms clouds, becomes full and heavy creating rain, snow or hail.

In the Book of Isaiah; which was written over 2,500 years ago, illustrates that God has measured just the right amount of water on the Earth. Just recently science has proved that the quantity of water on earth is just enough for our needs. If the sea was any deeper, the water would absorb all the carbon dioxide and nitrogen, making Earth unlivable.

Isaiah 40:12 - "Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand . . ."

Man’s reasoning and knowledge was given by the Almighty God, we are only limited to our known measurement and observation standards. Being that God created tools of measurements, God is immeasurable, yet his works are seen and clear to be measured and observable. Man is like a child who plays “Finder’s Keeper”, just because we found it, doesn’t mean it wasn’t already there and that it doesn't belongs to someone else. The only reason not to take in account the wonderful loving works of the Almighty God would be the Pride of Man.

So have Faith in God and his Word.

I would like to leave you with three Bible Scriptures to think about:

Hebrews 1:10 - “And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands”

1 Chronicles 16:11-12 – “Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth”

1 Timothy 6:20-21 - “… keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called…Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.”
