It’s just blood after all

Science has discovered what God had designed all along; there is a similarity between the physical make up of man (no apologies to the neuter non anthropos offendees who do not appreciate the word woman included in man),  with the mineral properties of dirt.

‘The life of the flesh is in the blood,’ says the good book, and:  ‘God hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation,’  and once more we see the wisdom of God in His very creation.

Yes, it is worth repeating:  The life of the flesh is in the blood, and let’s see, how many thousands of years ago was this written….Oh the utter soundness of the word of God.

Imagine, blood made from dirt.

The Red Cross has a good motto: ‘Give blood,’ and by so doing, give life. Iron in dirt. Iron in human blood. Let the disciples of unbelief chew on this thought, for if man does not laud this truth of God, even the very earthworms will sing the praises of the Creator.

Kids playing in the woods eating dirt had it right, as they innately knew there was no real danger in a stomach of brown putty.  Yep, Samson was ‘strong as iron,’ a phrase verifying the natural make up of a man who was made perfect and lacked nothing.

God made man from the dust of the earth, naturally only He would think to include the vitals of iron in the blood. God’s ways are clearly seen in blood banks and labs; He is glorified by the sciences as they confirm His genius. The spinning of blood and plasma sing the song of creation and redemption, for even a novice at the bench cannot in his right mind deny the Creator.

When Abel  died, we are reminded that not only did his life end, but that the earth received his blood, a devastating lesson as God said to Cain: ‘What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.’

And the Hebrew writer  said the blood of Christ ‘speaks better things than the blood of Abel.’  Of course. One death was a victim due to the sin of man. The other was the victor due to the sin of man.  Precious.

To the believer, this word is sweet, and the blood testifies of a love that cannot be measured. To the unbeliever, the perfect blood of Christ is an indictment against the pride of man.

Blood speaks of life, birth, hope, giving, sharing, loving, trauma, death, life poured out, covenants, vice, but it rarely speaks of waste, (unless of course, a man takes a life). Men cast aside dirt as ‘useless,’ and make a grave mistake, for everything made by God has purpose.

Can you hear the cry of Abel whose righteous life testifies to the crime of his brother, and can you see the beauty in the precious blood of life?

To deny the Lord of redemption is one thing; to refuse He who owns the title deed to earth by virtue of creation is inexcusable; who wants to live as a simple trespasser on another’s property…..?

To refuse Him who speaks from heaven is to agree with they who approved the death of Christ: ‘His blood be upon us, and our children.’ Not too smart.

      Yeah I’m thinking it took no more effort for God to make dirt than it did for Him to make the Milky Way.

      But the idea of blood from dirt should silence every fool on earth.

    …there is a similarity between the physical make up of man…with the mineral properties of dirt.” – I’m not sure why that would surprise anyone, we are all star stuff – it required three Supernovas for the heavy metals that exist on earth to form from exploding stars – we’re made of the same materials as the earth, as those are the only building blocks available. Any lifeforms that were to evolve on another planet, would have a slightly different composition, but it would be the minerals available on that planet. Sheesh – read a real book once in a while!

    The life of the flesh is in the blood, and let’s see, how many thousands of years ago was this written….Oh the utter soundness of the word of God.” – Just imagine, when some early human cut another human’s throat and all of the blood ran out, the surprise look on the offending human’s face when he learned the second human was dead! Shazam, Shazam! And to think that he learned that thousands of years ago! Utterly amazing!

    Have you noticed your penchant for minimalist titles? “It’s just blood after all…” – Just another day…” – “Just a small thing…” – “Just a bit of matter…” – you seem to be stuck in a rut. What’s next, “Just a handful of nails…“? I’ll say it again, writing school – the sooner, the better!

The Hebrew “sin offering” was a sacrifice of an unblemished animal to their god, to ask for forgiveness of their “sins.” In the NT, Yeshua was depicted as BEING that unblemished sin offering, but since you people maintain that he was also your god, incarnate, then he was in effect offering himself TO himself, for Humankind. Of course a wise god could just have said, “Hey guys, you know that sin thing? F’geddaboutit! I forgive you already!” but your god seems to like drama.

          You really know nothing about science, do you Fiction? Well, at least on this site, you’ll fit right in. You see, in the beginning of stars, there was hydrogen, with only one electron orbiting the nucleus of the hydrogen atom. The waste product of fused hydrogen atoms, is helium, and so on through ever-heavier elements. Gold and lead, for example, didn’t even exist during early star formation, but were products of third-generation SuperNovae. Like I told CS, read a book – maybe you two could help each other with the big words —

          Can you point me to a book that will truly explain (“scientifically” of course) where the first hydrogen atoms came from? What caused them to start fusing together? What caused the first laws of quantum mechanics to suddenly come into being, dictating to the electrons how to orbit the nucleus, and all the rest of the sub-atomic particles in their complex functions? The Laws of Gravity? The manner by which individual components of molecules are held together by energy, and then able to be recombined with other elements ad infinitum?

          There is so much “order” and design with even the “simplest” aspects of the Universe that the absurdity of cosmological evolution is so in your face it’s absolutely insane.

          Hey truthisstranger–

          It’s a common truth that your last paragraph is believed by many in academia at the highest levels of learning, but they cannot………. indeed they will not………… accept the proof.

          The ONLY alternative to an ‘accidental creation’ is belief in God generally, and the Lordship of Christ specifically, who we are told, ‘holds all things together by the word of His power.’

          Indeed such things are incriminating to the natural mind; and to ask for proof there is a God, the answer is simple: life! 😉

          Not specifically, and I’m not going to waste my time rounding up book titles for you to reject. I’d start with any High School general physical science textbook. I’m sure that books by Tyson or Krause would have the answers to many of your questions, I just know they will never be found in Answers In Genesis. The difference between us is that I can live perfectly well without knowing the answer, whereas those like you feel the need to fill the gaps in Human knowledge with a god.

          Whoa there, hang on? You’re the one who flung “you really know nothing about science, do you Fiction” in my face, so supposedly you DO know the answer, because science has all the answers…

          You fill the gaps in Human knowledge just as much, with your own “god”, blind faith in the idea that sooner or later, human beings will be able to scientifically explain things that are in fact completely impossible within the framework of modern science, particularly “high school physical science”! You are not just “living perfectly well without knowing the answer”, you are resigning yourself to living within an absolute paradox, a cognitive dissonance, whereby you insist that the physical universe is all there is, and then everything can be explained by universal physical laws, even the though universe itself has no way of explaining how the laws which govern it could have come into being in the first place, since they are ultimately just laws, non-physical things themselves….

          You have to embrace this paradox in order to cleave to Evolution…. But it is certainly not “science”.

          You’re confused, as usual. All events in the Universe have a rational explanation – we Humans may never be scientifically advanced enough to determine what each and every one of those are, but we’re OK with that, and keep searching nevertheless. But we search for facts, rather than fill the gaps of our knowledge with Bronze Age fiction.

          I would LOVE to know what came before the Big Bang! Was there a Big Crunch? I don’t know, and that’s OK – I’ll sit here and enjoy my coffee just as much as I would if I had all of the answers and feel no compunction to cram a god into the gap.

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. -the word of God

        Actually the sea is far more salty then the salts of the Earth. That’s a long since debunked evolutionary argument that was taken out of textbooks along with the little phony drawings of fish and human embryos. In the 1940’s if I remember right. It was deemed a fraud by scientists themselves. Yes, they cheated to try and prove evolution. And still these ideas persist.

        Rumor has it that when the seas first came into existence, their salt content was much lower than it is today, so it is possible that at some point in history our salinity matched that of the ocean, but blood is obviously a very different thing than sea water.
