THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A college professor, an avowed Atheist, was teaching his class.
He shocked several of his students when he flatly stated he was going to prove there was no God.
Addressing the ceiling he shouted: "God, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you 15 minutes!"
Ten minutes went by. Again he taunted God, saying, "Here I am, God. I'm still waiting."
Five more minutes went by, and he repeated the taunt.
Just before the next five minutes was up, something happened.
The professor was still looking up at the ceiling defiantly.
A marine, recently dismissed from the service and returning to college got up from his seat.
He charged the professor and knocked him flat!
After the professor came to his senses, he asked, "Why did you do that?"
The marine said, "Well, sir, God was busy; and, he sent me!"
14 Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
15 Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?
16 Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?
Do you know when God created the earth?
Do you know when God first formed light?
Do you know when God put the clouds in the sky?
Do you know how God balances the clouds; some giving rain and some not?
Everyone must answer "NO!"
NONE of us know for sure.
Some scientists declare they know the earth to be xx billions of years old.
But they can't prove it.
Some scientists declare they know how the universe got its beginning.
But they can't prove it.
So, why is it these same scientist call Christians foolish.
I think their faith in nothing is not nearly as great as my faith in God!
Even if I could tell you when God created light, it would not serve to comfort the hearts of those who have lost a loved one.
Even if I could tell you when God put the clouds in the sky, it would not help you with a drinking or drug problem.
Even if I could tell you how God balances the clouds, it would not serve to help you with financial problems.
But telling you of Him Who created and desires to save will give help and comfort!
Do you know HIM?
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
