Every Sunday I provide videos and valuable links to the Truth or Tradition teachings. We’ve been following the Truth or Tradition teachings for many years now and they have truly blessed our family. We have found peace and happiness through our beliefs and we walk confidently for God. My hope, by passing on this information to you, is that what you find here, or on the Truth or Tradition website, will guide you to a better, more blessed and abundant life.
If you would like to read my views on religion and how we got started with the ministry, you can read this.
Let’s get started:
If you don’t believe what the bible says, then how can you build a foundation for your faith or live the abundant life God wishes for you? Last week I posted about what the bible says about itself -it’s God-breathed and recorded by men.
This week, I’m posting a video about how there is scientific evidence that not only is the bible God-breathed and authored by God, but that God talks about things that have been scientifically proven in recent (hundreds of) years. For example, God describes to Job (which, incidentally is the oldest book in the bible!), about the Hydrologic cycle. Now of course, any grade-school student can tell you about the cycle of water, but 4,000 years ago they wouldn’t have POSSIBLY known about what the cycle was or how it worked.
God also reveals that clouds are heavy. It wasn’t until very recently that scientists discovered that clouds do indeed weigh tons and yet, they float. How then could men, mere mortals, know about these things loooooong before it was widely known or even proven?
The Bible is not a science textbook. Nevertheless, it is accurate when it mentions facts within the realm of science. Furthermore, the Bible contains physical knowledge about the world that was not generally known when the writers recorded the words of God. God created the heavens and the earth, and He intimately knows all about His creation. He simply told His prophets about the nature of earth and the universe, and they wrote down the scientific information He gave them.
Although the Bible is not a science textbook, it has some startling scientific information in it—startling primarily because at the time it was written, the information was not known to human beings.
The hydrologic cycle
The fact that water is drawn up from the earth into the air and later comes down as rain was not known in ancient times. Yet God made it clear in His written Word.
Job 36:27 and 28
(27) He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams;
(28 ) the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind.
All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again.
How could writers who lived hundreds of years before Christ know scientific information that we have learned about only in the last centuries? God, who created the heavens and the earth, told them.
The water in clouds
It was not generally known by ancient man that clouds are full of water. The association between clouds and rain was known because it rains only when it is cloudy, but it was definitely not known that even in good weather the fleecy clouds hold literally tons of water, something Job alluded to when he spoke of the “weight” of the clouds.
He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.
He loads the clouds with moisture; he scatters his lightning through them.
Because water is heavier than air, clouds have to be “balanced” in the sky. This is not readily apparent to those of us on the ground. It is generally assumed that clouds float because they are lighter than the air, but actually there is a lot of complex physics behind the clouds floating in the air. God spoke of this “balance” to Job some 4,000 years ago:
Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who is perfect in knowledge?
Job 37:16 (Amplified Version)
Do you know how the clouds are balanced…?
And these are just a few examples of God’s wonderful proof that His word is true and can be trusted. Watch the video below for more physical and scientific proof that the bible can be trusted.
