God’s Plan And Science Read from the book of Mark 13:6-8, 12-13, 21-23, 29-31. Now in my sermon today we will analyze the differences between scientific and biblical studies, before Christ, and after… First, scientist believe in what is know as the human evolution. Now according to the Encarta encyclopedia the Human Evolution, is the biological and cultural development of the species Homo sapiens, or human beings. Now, scientist say that a large number of fossil bones and teeth have been found at various places throughout Africa, Europe, and Asia.
Tools of stone, bone, and wood, as well as fire hearths, campsites, and burials, also have been discovered and excavated. As a result of these discoveries, a picture of human evolution during the past 4 to 5 million years has emerged. Humans, along with our extinct close ancestors, and as they say, our nearest living relatives, the African apes, are sometimes placed together in the family Hominid. They believe that between 7 and 20 million years ago, primitive ape-like animals were widely distributed on the African and, later, on the Eurasian continents. This is their justification for us, humans, being here today. In other words, they believe we evolved from monkeys.
Now Im no seminary school alumnae, I have not a BA in theology, I dont have a MA in philosophy, nor do I have a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies, but I do have b-i-b-l-e. Church I have Gods word, and if God said it, thats all that matters. If you have bibles would you turn with me, to the book of Genesis: Chapter 1 Verses 26-28, and Genesis: Chapter 2 Verses 6 & 7. Please stand for the reading of Gods word.
There youll find these words: Chapter 1: 26 And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Chapter 2: 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 But when the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. This is just one analogy of Scientists Man vs.
God Plan. In further evaluation of scientific thought, Ive found that scientist and sociologist tend to believe that the reason for the school terrors of 99, the reason for a little middle schooled boy murdering a little elementary girl, and the reason for the wrath of teenage students on their peers, is the fault of social diversity and ethnicity. The Christians are beginning to quote that famous scripture..”Train up your child in the way that he should go, and when he gets old, he will not depart from it.” Well Christians God has not given us the spirit of fear, but he has given us his power, a sound mind, hes given us love and joy..If you look back to my beginning text youll find that it was already foretold by the Lord. The youth today, are afraid to praise the Lord, theyre scared of what people will say, theyre afraid of being persecuted by the friends, but I come to let you know that if you read in the book of the Gospel According to John, you find in chapter 15 verse 18, that Jesus tells us, “Just as sure as they talked me, theyre surely gonna talk about you. Theyre also afraid, and now fearful for their lives, they are afraid that if they serve the Lord in their schools they just may not live to see another day, well if you refer again to my opening text, in Mark Chapter 13 verse 13, youll find that God tells us that if you are in him, in the last days, you will be hated by those who dont believe in him..But the Lord says that if you endure until the end you will surely have the victory, you will win the war, and fly away to a home on Gods celestial shore. Hallelujah.
You got babies makin babies. I heard one say, ” I was lookin for love”. Theyre layin up, lettin these thugs, girls and guys, take advantage of em. Well I come today to tell you that if you look in the book of 1st John 4 and 8, youll find out that God is love. If you lookin for love, think about when Jesus was stretch on Calvarys cross.
He hung and he died. Why? So the we may live eternally with him, if we believe. Now thats love.. Romans 12 and 1 says. “I beseech ye therefore brethren by the mercies of God that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice holy and acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Now if you aint married and you wanna make it in to heaven you and got no business sleepin around and fornicatin with your sisters husband, or your bothers wife. Oh see, now I didnt come to sugar coat nothin you might as well get with me..If Im preaching right now turn to ya neighbor, give him a high – five and say”neighbor that youth, is on fire”…Shout Yea. Ye-ea Yeah. These plagues are not just coincidental, they are warnings from the Lord. Warning us and lettin us know that time, is of the essence, that time, is not on your side, time, is winnin up, its time to get right with God, Its time to stop bein paper chasers, and time to start bein chasers of the word.
***Well pastor, Aint I got time.*** I come to tell you that no man knows the day or the hour at which the son of man shall appear. Gabriel is on that horn, and hes gettin ready to blow, when that great trumpet sounds and my Lord and Savior comes in riding on a cloud, will you be ready? How many of you all believe that hes comin back. If you believe turn to your neighbor and say neighbor I believe that hes comin back, hes coming back, shout yeah……. In closing, I wanna chat with ya just for a little while on the Christian approach to these plagues…1. youve got to humble yourself before God, and turn from your wicked ways..2.
youve got to pray. Why? Because the prayers of the righteous availeth much. When you find your self in the midst of a trial, in the midst of heart ache, your children wont do right, your husband has lost his job, your wife thinking more about her cosmetics than she is about food being on the kitchen table…No that he dwells in the midst of your praise…See youve gotta be like Job when hed lost all he had he still rejoiced in the Lord….Youve gotta be like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in other words youve got to have faith in God..Youve gotta believe that in the midst of your suffering, God will show up and show out..Youve got to understand that he is coming back for a church without a spot or wrinkle..You cant be sittin up in here worried about your money being lost by the banking systems, as a result of the Y2K. I heard one preacher say that Y2K stand s for yield to the King. I wanna know today have you stocked up on your water and can goods for the Y2K, have you loaded up your cabinets with a little bit of faith, have you loaded up with a little bit of the living water, Im talking about the water thatll be like Kool-aid and Quench your thirst..Until youll have to thirst no more.
Im talking by the word of the Lord…Have you Checked the BIOS and the Random Access Memory of your computer, to make sure that it had been transformed to be Y2K compliant, in other words have you been transformed by the renewing of you mind. Finally have you Defragged your hard drive, so that your computer will run a little smoother when Y2K confronts us, in other words have you been washed in the blood of the crucified one, have you been to as Lashun Pace-Rhodes says, Gods Chemical Laboratory of Redemption…If youve been delivered stand up on the legs that God has blessed you with, and help me praise the Lord.
