God's Plan for this World and You

 

THE view of planet earth, seen from outer space, is very beautiful indeed. Confirmation of this has come from the astronauts who have gazed upon it. The earth is the fairest jewel in God's creation and it is the chosen place in the whole universe where He has promised to reveal His Kingdom in all its glory. That is why it is so beautiful.

 

The earth, of all the planets in the solar system, is the one that is perfectly suited to all forms of life and the one that orbits at exactly the right distance from the sun to provide comfortable conditions for the human race.

True Bible Teaching fundamental beliefs are:

  1. The Bible is God's word and the only message from him. It is without error, except for copying and translation errors.

 Truth Seeker - True Bible Teaching

The Bible is our only true source for the Truth!

 

If we claim to follow Christ we should trust in the Scriptures as confidently as Jesus and his Apostles did:

Jesus said that: The Scripture cannot be broken.  (John 10:35)

 

Paul said that: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

Peter said that: For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21)

The things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven (1 Peter 1:12)

 

True faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

The Dinosaur Problem

T Rex Tissue Stumps Evolutionists

T-Rex Soft Tissue Disproves Evolution

Clip from “T.R.U.T.H. About the Dinosaurs” DVD

Is there something wrong when a supposedly 70 million-year-old tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur is found with soft tissue—including blood vessels and even whole cells? This is what a U.S. researcher reported in late March.  Biologist Mary Schweitzer discovered this soft tissue when it was necessary to break a T. rex’s huge thigh bone.

Schweitzer said that the vessels were flexible and some could even be squeezed. After extensive testing, there was confirmation that this T. rex bone even had hemoglobin (red blood cells).

This discovery is unexplained by evolutionary thinking, which suggests that millions and millions of years have passed since this “King of Dinos” met its demise. Schweitzer is puzzled and cannot understand why this bone was not mineralized. “It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually, because it flies in the face of everything we understand about how tissues and cells degrade,” she said on MSNBC.

“It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually….”

—Dr. Mary Schweitzer

In 1995, Joe Taylor, a professional dinosaur excavator and a biblical creationist, was curious about the hip girdle of another T. rex that was found in 1916. It was found in the same Hell Creek Formation where Schweitzer’s T. rex bone was found. Taylor was amazed that this 65 million-year-old specimen still had the appearance of skin on the sacral vertebrae. He sent a sample to Azusa Pacific College in California and had it scanned with an electron microscope by Professor Mark Armitage, who found that the bone had collagen filaments intact inside the bone. The presence of collagen suggests that this supposedly 65 million year old fossil was not completely fossilized. Armitage states, “It can’t be but a few thousand years old.”

So the Theory of Evolution is just that ‘A Theory’ that has never been proved and evidence like this says it can’t be and isn’t true.

The Bible Is Our ONLY Guide

The Holy BibleThe Bible provides us with plain Scriptural Teaching for the True Followers of Christ

The statements on this guide represent what we believe is true Bible teaching. The statements are deliberately challenging, asking every reader to compare his own opinions with the plain teaching of Scripture, examining carefully the Bible passages offered as proof. If, as a result, a change of mind and heart is called for, there will be no doubt that the teaching of the Lord, and the book he trusted, must be followed and not what the churches teach.

 

All Scripture quotations are taken from the New King James (also known as the Revised Authorized) Version of the Bible.

THE TRUE IDENTITY OF THE BIBLICAL TARSHISH

Bible Prophecy Provides Evidence That God Exists For All To SEE

THE TRUE IDENTITY OF THE BIBLICAL TARSHISH

 

identity of tarshish1Identifying the Biblical power known as Tarshish has presented considerable problems to historians, inguists,political economists and church leaders alike. Most of them have come up with a variety of geographical locations varying from Sardinia and Israel through to the European Union and even NATO. Other linguists have asserted that in certain ancient Middle Eastern languages, the word is no more than a descriptive term for “big ships,” or curiously enough, it is a term for a “smelting furnace” and not a geographical location at all.

In all this confusion what is the honest Bible student to do? The answer must be to turn away from all these “experts” and discover what the Bible itself has to say. Not that you will find just one chapter or verse that will tell it to you as simply as that, but rather in the spirit of Proverbs 25:2 where we are told that: “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.”

identity of tarshish Puzzel

The first step is to get a computerised “On- Line Bible” to print out all the Bible’s references to Tarshish (or better still, look them up in a concordance). There are at least 24 such explicit, direct references, not counting those which probably refer to Tarshish in other terms, such as in Jeremiah 31:10, “Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.”

There is no honest alternative to sitting down and laboriously analysing, and then summarising what each of those quotations tell us about Tarshish. When we have done so, we must try to fit the pieces of the puzzle together, using, say, the principal 18 or so verses so as to  form what could be termed a sort of verbal “identikit”—an outline verbal picture of the power referred to in our THE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE: THE IDENTIKIT at the top of this article.

By now a remarkable Bible-based picture will begin to emerge highlighting the key characteristics of the Power we are trying to identify.

Amongst the most notable features of this Power (which we have still not identified at this stage) will be its relationship and dealings with the Jews. Its nature as a maritime island trading power far away from the Middle East, and its involvement in the future battle of Armageddon.

So who can this power be? Consider whatever possibilities come into your mind and then check them out against the identikit picture.identity of tarshish3

For example; what about NATO or the European Union? Do they fit? Whenever did they favour the return of the Jews to their homeland? Those entities weren’t even formed until after the State of Israel was created! You have to eliminate Germany for the obvious reasons of the Holocaust. Russia? When has that been a maritime island power?—never mind its persecution of the Jews. France?

Maybe at times it has favoured the Jews, but in what sense has it ever been as island? What about Tunisia? Now that is a good guess because it is true to say that, following the collapse of the ancient market place of Tyre where the traders of Tarshish did their business, Carthage in Tunisia took over some of its economic power. But what has Tunisia done to assist the return of the Jews to their land? Nothing! And how can it offer opposition to Russia when it invades the Middle East? It can’t.

And so we could go on, eliminating all possibilities until we are left with the English speaking people of Britain, its former empire and its descendants e.g. America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and others. In a book by former Times writer, Simon Winchester, called Outposts, he describes how even today 80 years after the political term “British Empire” was abandoned, the Commonwealth still includes some 16 dependent territories  from the Caribbean Anguilla through to the Pacific Ocean’s Pitcairn Islands, comprising some 200 separate island communities with over 130,000 inhabitants owing allegiance to the British Crown. See our “Young Lions” and Modern Versions of the Bible sub-article below.

True, there is one other possibility, Spain which we consider in the article below entitled WHAT ABOUT SPAIN?

But at this stage we must return to the Biblical references to Tarshish and note the various contexts in which we find them. As we do so it becomes obvious that whilst there has been a specific location for Tarshish, it is also important that we should see that it has a “role” to be fulfilled in God’s purpose with the Jewish people (Isaiah 60:9).

Since the 17th century some Bible students have seen Britain as being the main Protestant power fostering the return of the Jews. For identity of tarshish2example, in 1797, Thomas Witherby, in commenting upon the book The Restoration of the Jews: A Crisis of all Nations believed that “England, under a new Cyrus, would be chosen to perform God’s purposes of mercy towards Israel.” We may point out also that in Isaiah 49:22,23 certain Gentile powers have a role to fulfil: “Kings shall be thy nursing fathers and queens thy nursing mothers.”

In addition, when we reconsider Jeremiah 31:10 (already referred to) it is obvious that this island power has to be able to take the word of the Lord worldwide.

Isaiah adds the description “On mine arm shall they trust” (Isaiah 51:5). No one is suggesting that Britain has ever been a truly Bible based nation but it has done more than any other nation on earth to promote Bible reading and taking its message to the ends of the earth.

Consider for a moment the Bible translation work of Wycliffe in the 13th century and Tyndale— burnt at the stake at the behest of European powers in the 16th century. It was Britain which, in 1611, brought into existence the King James Authorised version of the Bible. Only a few years after, 1697 saw the creation of the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge (SPCK), followed in 1804 by the formation of the British and Foreign Bible Society, and in 1816 by a similar organisation in America. Then the YMCA in 1844. Recall the pioneering work of such Missionaries as Livingstone, Moffat, Chalmers, and Carey. It is truly remarkable and unique, that among other nations of the country. Reformation times it was only the  imperialist British merchant venturers that were followed so soon afterwards by the English Bible being taken worldwide.

Indeed, as Christadelphian writer Graham Pearce put it in the 1970’s, the English language became a conduit for the word of God to the ends of the earth.

So let us now return to the key identikit THE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE: THE IDENTIKIT at the top of this article  which summarises the descriptions of Tarshish. Ask yourself, in all honesty, what other nation has ever conformed to these requirements of the Bible. The answer is, quite simply none.

There can be no alternative explanation other than Britain, if Scripture alone is to be our guide.
