Comment on Silence of the Geoscience Research Institute by Charles.

To be clear, I don’t think any “Creationist” will take the position that the universe is not millions or more years in age. The great “War in Heaven” happened prior to the creation of our Earth – how long before, we cannot know. EGW talks about beings who occupy other worlds in the universe.

God has existed for eternity past, just as He will exist for eternity future. (Those who accept the gift of Jesus will also live for eternity future.) In God’s past, was there ever a time when He had not created anything and then started? I don’t think anyone knows the answer to that question but it certainly leaves open the reasonability that some worlds are millions of years old. The extreme vastness of the universe is beyond human comprehension. I believe that to be a testimony to the incomprehensible power, intelligence, and presence of our Creator. For our “science” to comprehend anything about Him is foolishness.

But think of it. My mind tries to grasp the significance of us puny humans here on this world. We are like a speck of dust in the universe. But the Creator (Jesus) came here and laid down his life for us. But not only that, he did it for each and every one of us as if there were not another for whom He would need to die. That puts a high value on each of us. Can you imagine His anguish when so many deny Him for Who He really is?

Give your heart to Jesus. He cannot save you unles you do. (I am speaking to myself as well.)

Thanks for sharing that, Bob.

From Spiritual Gifts, v. 3, p 82, 83

Greater wonders than have yet been seen will be witnessed by those upon the earth a short period previous to the coming of Christ. “And I will show wonders in the heavens above, and signs in the earth beneath, blood and fire and vapour of smoke.” “And there were voices and thunders and lightnings, and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake and so great. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for the plague thereof was exceeding great.” {3SG 82.1}
Spiritual Gifts, Volume 3, p. 82.2 (EGW)
The bowels of the earth were the Lord’s arsenal, from which he drew forth the weapons he employed in the destruction of the old world. Waters in the bowels of the earth gushed forth, and united with the waters from Heaven, to accomplish the work of destruction. Since the flood, God has used both water and fire in the earth as his agents to destroy wicked cities. {3SG 82.2}
Spiritual Gifts, Volume 3, p. 82.3 (EGW)
In the day of the Lord, just before the coming of Christ, God will send lightnings from Heaven in his wrath, which will unite with fire in the earth. The mountains will burn 83like a furnace, and will pour forth terrible streams of lava, destroying gardens and fields, villages and cities; and as they pour their melted ore, rocks and heated mud into the rivers, will cause them to boil like a pot, and send forth massive rocks and scatter their broken fragments upon the land with indescribable violence. Whole rivers will be dried up. The earth will be convulsed, and there will be dreadful eruptions and earthquakes everywhere. God will plague the wicked inhabitants of the earth until they are destroyed from off it. {3SG 82.3}
Spiritual Gifts, Volume 3, p. 83.1 (EGW)
The saints are preserved in the earth in the midst of these dreadful commotions, as Noah was preserved in the ark at the time of the flood. Christ appears in his glory, and calls forth the righteous dead. The living saints are changed, and, with the resurrected dead, are borne away from the earth by angels to meet their Lord in the air. The earth is left like a desolate wilderness.

Jesus is coming. Time to get ready. We know the wolves are among us. Just focus on a relationship with Jesus and proclaim His final message upon the Earth. It’s the only way!

Happy Sabbath, everyone.

No matter how the FBs are worded, there will be contention about it.

Anyone who has fully embraced this message realizes that the days to Jesus’ coming are few. Thus it behooves us to be about the work of proclaiming the unique ADVENTIST message to a world that is facing impending doom.

May I suggest the sermons of Jeremiah Davis. (can be found on Youtube)

@gene fortner: I don’t think anyone really knows what powers were being exercised on 9/11. Clearly the airliners were involved.

It was an event that changed the world in ways that top-down powers would yearn for.

No point in speculation… I think Veith probably was mistaken to do that deep dive and it seems that he has quietly backed away from it.

The thing we must focus on is to “Turn your eyes upon Jesus….” Clearly, we are in “the last days”.

@David Read: I find Veith’s “theorizing” regarding “conspiracies” to be spot on and on topic.

There is a great “conspiracy” – otherwise known as “The Great Controversy”. It is the ultimate reality of our rebellious little world today. AND it is the foundation of all of these other problems we deal with.

Evidence that God is in control. LSU could become a beacon of light shining on the truth of our world an how we came to be here. That is as it should be.

I believe we are involved in a Mount Carmel experience. As this world is hurling toward the great climactic “END”, we will see more and greater attacks against the truth by the great deceiver. The prophets of Baal will become bolder and more feverish. (Remember that the prophets of Baal on Mt Carmel were much from within the nation of Israel.)

What a day of reckoning it will be when “at such a time as we think not” that great cloud approaches this world. The signs today are loud and bold. Jesus is coming. Spread the word.
