Genesis 1

For Christmas, Emily and Ethan each got a book called, Amazing Animal Journeys from Kerry, a cousin.  In the book is wonderful information about God’s diverse creatures such as finding out that thousands of zebras in Botswana, Africa migrate approximately 360 miles total, and that millions of little, red crabs on Christmas Island migrate from their forest burrows following “the season’s first big rain.”  From there, they tackle cliffs and face other dangers like becoming roadkill, just so the female crabs can get to the ocean to release the eggs.

In addition to migration facts, other information was packed in the book.  For example, walruses have an air pouch so that when they go to sleep, their heads won’t submerge.  Also, a baby zebra has the ability to recognize its mom’s unique stripe pattern.

When Creation was complete, God looked at what He made and “it was good.”  The walruses wouldn’t drown because of the built-in air pouches, the baby zebras would quickly learn how to identify their mothers, etc.  He thought of everything.  Is there anyone that can identify all of the animals God made?  Maybe.  But is there anyone that can identify all of the animals and know everything about them?  Probably not, and animals are just a fraction of what God made.

Evolutionists don’t give God the credit He deserves.  How can they think all of the animals happened by chance?  I want to conclude with a quote from The Collapse of Evolution by Scott M. Huse:  “Extraordinary design and adaptation are found throughout nature in such abundance, perfection, and complexity as to utterly defy evolutionary explanation.  Most of these structures and abilities simply could not have evolved piecemeal because they are useful only when perfect and complete.  Indeed, all of nature proclaims, ‘Behold, the Master Creator!’  As Lord Kelvin has written:  ‘Overwhelmingly strong proofs of intelligent and benevolent design lie around us…the atheistic idea is so non-sensical that I cannot put it into words.'”

Daniel 1:3-14, 2:46, 3:23-30, 6:23

I read Daniel for the third time yesterday after watching the movie, “The Book of Daniel.”  This movie mostly adheres to Scripture with some minor differences:

Scripture:  A court official was too afraid to grant Daniel’s food and drink request, but a guard agreed.
Movie:  Daniel only talked to the court official.

Scripture:  After Daniel interpreted Nebuchadnezzar’s statue dream, Nebuchadnezzar “fell prostrate before Daniel…”
Movie:  After hearing the interpretation, Nebuchadnezzar walked toward his throne and sat down.

Scripture:  Royal advisers and others looked for evidence of fire on Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and Nebuchadnezzar didn’t mention the word, “fire.”
Movie:  Nebuchadnezzar examined them and said the word, “fire.”

Scripture:  Daniel had to be lifted up out of the lion’s den.
Movie:  King Darius said to Daniel, “Come forth” and Daniel simply walked out.

Daniel and his friends were steadfast in their loyalty to God.  They probably had God-fearing mothers.  If their mothers still lived and found out about their applied love for God, they would have been pleased.
