God’s Word and the Creation

By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. Psalm 33:6.

Since the book of nature and the book of revelation bear the impress of the same master mind, they cannot but speak in harmony....

Inferences erroneously drawn from facts observed in nature have, however, led to supposed conflict between science and revelation.... Millions of years, it is claimed, were required for the evolution of the earth from chaos; and in order to accommodate the Bible to this supposed revelation of science, the days of creation are assumed to have been vast, indefinite periods.... Such a conclusion is wholly uncalled for.87

Of each successive day of creation, the Sacred Record declares that it consisted of the evening and the morning, like all other days that have followed.

In regard to the work of creation itself the divine testimony is, “He spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.” Psalm 33:9. With Him who could thus call into existence unnumbered worlds, how long a time would be required for the evolution of the earth from chaos? ...

It is true that remains found in the earth testify to the existence of men, animals, and plants much larger than any now known.... But concerning these things Bible history furnishes ample explanation. Before the Flood, the development of vegetable and animal life was immeasurably superior to that which has since been known. At the Flood the surface of the earth was broken up, marked changes took place, and in the re-formation of the earth’s crust were preserved many evidences of the life previously existing.... These things ... are so many witnesses mutely testifying to the truth of the Word of God.

Just how God accomplished the work of creation He has never revealed to men; human science cannot search out the secrets of the Most High. His creative power is as incomprehensible as His existence.

How to tell the Difference between True and False Revival

How to tell the Difference between True and False Revival

Today many Christians are praying for revival. And we should be praying for revival. However, in the book Great Controversy we read that before the final outpouring of the Holy Spirit occurs, there will be a counterfeit revival that Satan will introduce to deceive the world. So how do we tell the difference between the false revival and the true? In this video Mark Finley answers this very question.
