Jump!

Time for the perennial visit of the little girl who is about to do something she never did before. With talk of children being abused or neglected, this should provide relief to even the skeptical that a Father’s love can be trusted.

The Lions Den

An everyday complaint in blogsville is filed somewhere against  ‘Faith is believing in what you know ain’t true,’ a common  short-sighted idea attributed to Mark Twain. This is usually cited to rail against the scriptures, God, and people of faith. An alleged ‘ace in the hole’ of an argument that supposes things not seen cannot be proven.  Of course many hop on this short train trip as it heads off the cliff of reason and reality. Which reminds me.

A child of two is standing atop a wall, 6 feet off the ground. Her father standing below her says ‘Jump honey.’ Of course she is immediately fearful and shakes her head sideways. She doubts. She never jumped before; she has no evidence, she was never in this place on this wall; she never saw her father below her looking so small and far away. ‘C’mon, I’ll catch you.’ She hopes

A good word there, firmament

It is rather interesting that quite a rarely used and highly unassuming word such as ‘firmament,’ could draw so much attention from the googlemeisters. Go ahead, try it, and see if you can escape the immediate connection made with the God of creation. Good luck, as no can do.

Firmament. Sounds quite fixed eh? Yep, that’s the point. Sea level, the rainbow, so-called space travel, all dance around the truth of the Creator’s genius of His firmament. The waters above and the waters below; lakes found under oceans, vapors above illuminating the sky, glittering stars, all speak with heavens guarantee of God’s unsurpassable beauty, and obvious consistency in supplying daily proof of His very existence and ability to maintain his creation.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Don’t you just love that God only ‘said,’ then ‘made,’ and of course like the word of God in its most demure and illustrious way, adds: and it was so.

Naturally, when the Lord ‘said’ to the raging sea: ‘peace be still,’ it was enough, as there was an immediate great calm. Same word. Same power. Same authority. Nature bows to its Maker, yesterday, today, and forever.

But do take note also of the attempt by the googsters, to usurp a very good word and truth, by attaching another idea of ‘firmament,’ to such lame ideas as ‘one of the great stars of the golfing firmament.’ Really? Surely there are better ways to express the likes of Jack Nicklaus, but as it usually is, people must at whatever cost, downplay the truth of scripture by trying to elevate their own ideas which delete God from His own creation. Not too smart.

I am never at a loss for amusement when I see people trading on the majestic language of scripture, while at the same time deny He who owns the alphabet. You cannot even begin to speak of ‘firmament’ without being aware of its initial usage, and that of course, was by God thank you very much.

Don’t like such wonderful words as firmament, cherubim, propitiation, redemption, righteousness, concupiscence, Benjamin, faith, topaz, beryl, jacinth, throne, effulgent, snow, whirlwind, alabaster, myrrh, dromedary, Goliath, hypocrite, bastard, or death? Fine, get your own dictionary, and avoid using words that speak of the Creator and His account of life and humanity.

Yeah, good luck with that too, as your vocabulary will shrink to a hundred words. God communicates through words, not grunts, clearly separating our humor from that of the snickering hyena thank you kindly.

Firmament. Stable. Sure. Immovable. Such is the nature of the one living God whose word reveals Himself to any honest person. Key word there, honest. Judging God because of the rebel acts of men is not honest. Avoiding God because there is no ‘proof’ is not honest. Relying on the so-called learning of men or women who have written God off from His own book is not being honest.

Who can find a virtuous man or woman? His worth is above measure.

It takes no effort and causes no sweat to see the hand of God in everything. Everything. So I indeed take issue with the tired, borrowed, boring, and mind numbing vapid arguments by they who say God can not be seen. Hello? It is easier to see the hand of God within 2 seconds or less, than it is for a man to believe he will live to see tomorrow. (sorry, I have said this before, but I like it, and it’s worth repeating.)

Yes, this quote here was made by the genius mind of Nicola Tesla, who spoke with matter-of-fact certainty of the firmament. And btw, over 6 million references to ‘firmament,’ some very good info, and many of course try to deny the obvious, that ‘in the beginning, God……….’
