In a World Full of “Knowledge” What is the Truth.
About this Article Each week I like to share something with you all that I have learned over the last week. However yesterday came (Thursday), and nothing had yet come to me that seemed of a pressing matter to write on. I asked for something and this morning as I was listening to Genesis 2 I heard something that I seemingly overlooked. That something is day six of creation, then some of what Paul wrote to Timothy and the Corinthians. Those are the things I will share with you today. Gnōsis (Knowledge and Science) Let us start with two scriptures from Paul. Timothy, protect what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly, empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”—which some have professed and thereby have gone astray from the faith. 1 Timothy 6:20-21. The word “knowledge” in this scripture is translated from the Greek word “gnōsis”. This same word is used in 2 Corinthians 10:5 where Paul writes, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the “knowledge” of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; This word “gnōsis” is used 29 times in scripture, and one of those times it is translated to “science” in 1 Timothy 6:20. Within science we find teachings (or opposing arguments) that “exhaults” itself above the scriptures (true knowledge). This includes the creation account found in Genesis 1, and the break down of creation day six in Genesis 2. The Scientific Timeline Scientists claim that the beginning of our solar system happened over 4.5 billion years ago in a giant gas explosion. During that time our planet came into being. Fast forward to 541 through 245 million years ago to the Paleozoic Era we find the development of hard-shelled invertebrates in the ocean, then the development of amphibians, reptiles, and mammals. During this time period science claims that all land animals including humans came into being. They say that we as well as all life on the land evolved from fish that made their way on to land. The dinosaurs became a dominant force during Mesozoic Era from 245 through 66 million years ago and became extinct due to a meteor that hit the Earth. Now we sit in the Cenozoic Era from 66 million years ago until now. None of what scientists say according to their timeline happened anymore than the Earth is a flat disc that the universe rotates around. All fables and there is plenty of physical evidence to prove that science is far more wrong than we think they are. The Biblical Timeline Now let us take a look at Genesis chapter 1 and 2. In Genesis 1 we see Moses giving a summary of what happened each day of creation. He never used years or months, but only days. Nor was he referring to 2 Peter 3:8 which says, “But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.” For each day had an evening and a morning referring to a normal 24 hour day. Moses starts off by saying that “in the beginning Elohim created” (implying someone did it, not that it just happened on its own). We also see the Spirit of Elohim and the Light (Yeshua) on that day, and we see Elohim being referred to as “We” and “They” throughout the chapter. Day two we see Elohim separate the sky from the waters. Day three land appears and vegetation grows. Day four the sun, moon, and stars are created (they didn’t come into being during an explosion of gases that also made Earth, nor on day one). Day five Elohim created the sea life, and the birds of the air. Now on day six, is what I want to stress most importantly, because of science and myths within history. On day six Elohim first created man (Adam), second planted a garden called Eden, third placed Adam in it. Then Elohim saw Adam was by himself and said that’s not good, so forth Elohim created all the life on the land (that includes dinosaurs, cattle, cats, dogs, and so on) and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. Fifth Adam named them all but no of them was found a suitable helper for him. So Elohim put a deep sleep on Adam, and sixth brought Eve into existence from Adam’s rib. This is why Genesis 1 says ,” and They created them male and female” on day six. For on day six Adam and Eve came into being, and all land creatures as well. There is a myth that has circulated for thousands of years that Adam had a wife named Lilith that was created on day six, and that she sinned against him and therefore was sent away. This myth might be believable if chapter two of Genesis didn’t exists, but it does and therefore when properly understood we see Lilith is nothing more than superstition and mythology made up by those with a lack of proper understanding when it comes to scripture. Some wonder why we can not find fossils of humans from the time of the dinosaurs. This answer is found in Genesis 6:7 which says, “And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.” The great flood of Noah’s days was more than just water, but it also included violent earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami after tsunami, one continent known as Pangea was violently torn up and sent running in different direction (no drifting here), and even the moon itself took on damage from the rocks that were flung at it from Earth itself (not from millions of years of meteor damage). It is no wonder why we can not find the remains of humans, birds, and animals from before the flood. For what smaller living creature could have sustained this type of destruction. Even their remains would have been carried away and destroyed by tectonic plates siding under one another and ocean life eating the remains of land dwellers. The dinosaur graveyards we find are due to; them being so large, and they sought higher ground quickly, but like everything else on land they eventually succumbed to their muddy and watery graves. We see most dinosaur fossils found enact and in positions looking backwards as if they are running from something. Did a meteor hit Earth? Possible, but doubtful. It is more possible the meteor shower called Lyrids Meteor Shower (the oldest recorded meteor shower) is debris from that violet destruction that came with the great flood of Noah’s time, and it is also possible that a huge chunk of Earth’s surface was flung up and fell back down on to the surface that caused great destruction as well. When we look at the Gulf of Mexico we see that a “great meteor” hit it, and on the opposite side of the planet are the Himalayan Mountains. The Himalayan Mountains include Mount Everest which is the tallest mountain on Earth. We can speculate as to the full blown details of the great flood, but we are certain of one thing. That is it happened and there is loads of evidence that supports it happened, and when it happened, according to the scriptures verses what science teaches its students. Now one last thing for those who would say, “No one was around when Elohim created the Heavens and the Earth”. First, Elohim was there! He testified to that with the Ten Commandments in the sabbath day law. He said, “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. For six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of the LORD your God; on it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male slave or your female slave, or your cattle, or your resident who stays with you. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and everything that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day; for that reason the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” Exodus 20:8-11 The Lord wrote the Ten Commandments! So to agree with the scientific timeline is to say you do not believe the scriptures to be accurate and true. By accepting the scientific narrative we fall from faith as it is written, “protect what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly, empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”—which some have professed and thereby have gone astray from the faith.” In Conclusion There are many false teachings in the world inside and outside the Church. We must always read or listen to the Hebrew scriptures. However, we must not read or listen to the scriptures alone, but pray that the Spirit of Elohim guides us in to all understanding. Even the most seasoned preachers out there overlook things in the Bible, and many have intertwined their opinions into it. You could read the Bible or listen to it a hundred times over and still find something that is new to you. We must always feed off the Word of Elohim (Yeshua) and never stop seeking more understanding from Him. May the Lord Yeshua eternally bless you with true enlightenment and with a righteous heart to live before Him. Amen The Caretaker of Feeding the Flock Ministry
