The following story was submitted by Venetia and the author is unknown. I have revised it and added some info to it as well.
Fascinating, I’ve never given most of this a thought!!!! And then we allow the school system to teach our children about evolution?
There is the big debate about which came first: the chicken or the egg. Quite simple actually because God created the chicken (male and female) which produced eggs to be fruitful on the earth. But God’s accuracy and wisdom (in His design) may be observed in the hatching of eggs. For example:
- the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;
- those of the canary in 14 days;
- those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
- The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;
- those of the mallard in 35 days;
- The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week and the number 7 stands for:
- Completeness; Perfection or bringing to an end.
- Even the dispensations of time is divided in 7 – whereas we are now the 6th dispensation (the Church and dispensation of Grace). The 7th dispensation is about the start when the Lord Jesus returns to take His Bride away and the period of Rest (the 7th day) will continue for all of the children of God.
God’s wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped was created like this. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily. Was this part of evolution or the big bang?
How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!
The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
God’s wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains.
- Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
- Each orange has an even number of segments.
- Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.
- Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
- Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.
- The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.
- The number 26 means “Gospel”. It is only the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ which is steadfast and true and as Paul proclaimed: “ For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. (Rom 1:16 ESV)
- From personal experience you can also see that the 7th wave is always a bigger wave than the previous 6. Test this for yourself.
- All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold – all even numbers.
- God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day, so that Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed!
These aspects above are only a few things that clearly show the hand and wisdom of the Creator of all in this and how can we doubt His Word and then believe the dross from the worldly systems who clearly don’t believe in God? In Sweden they have spent billions of Euros and still spending billions on a monthly basis to pay all the best scientists in this world to re-create the “big bang” moment when creation started. Only recently they have acknowledged that there is definitely a “God factor” involved in this all. WOW! They could have saved them the trouble by reading Genesis chapter one to them again and used the billions to save the world with the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the only Savior. But on the other hand – all their work will only be utilized to honor and lift up the awesome name of our God and His wisdom in it all. The Word declares He spoke the creation into existence . This is a power that we as human beings will not understand today or ever in this world.
The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. See the following scriptures:
- LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure. (Isa 25:1 ESV)
- Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established. (Pro 16:3 ESV)
Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end. You can also download from our website the revelation of most of the numbers in the Bible and the meaning of each one as described in the book from Don Kistler: Arithmetic of God. This revelation of the number system from God in His Word, will clearly show you that God exists and He is the only author of His Word, although He used many scribes to write it down for our purposes. This is a deep study book and you have to read/study it slowly. Use it in Bible Study especially when you do a study of the Tabernacle of Moses – by using the old measurements of “el” – in Afrikaans or the “cubits” – in English.
Enjoy and trust the Word of God as it is true and He is faithful.
