Reason 10: The Bible: The Human Fossil Record
The Science of Human Fossils
Carl Sagan speaking at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in San Francisco explained how science worked.
“The most fundamental axioms and conclusions may be challenged”…and the prevailing hypothesis “must survive confrontation with observation”.. “Appeals to authority” he said “are impermissible and experiments must be reproducible”
Sagan is referring to “Scientific Method” as the basis of science, which comes from the Latin root word meaning knowledge. The problem with what Carl Sagan says and what actually takes place in the science of Evolution are two different things. Many secular scientists preach scientific method yet in practice their work is anything but scientific method. The public elevates scientists as paragons of objectivity who are “Objective” with not having a “horse in the race”. Therefore many of the claims and conclusions put forward in the media are not met with skepticism because the source is considered reliable and objective. As we shall see, this is not the case when it comes to the human fossil record.
Reason 17: The Restoration of Israel
The restoration of Israel as a nation
Israel is a nation that came into existence this century in May 1948, a new nation, with an ancient history. Israel existence is not an accident, its land and very existence are tied to the Bible, the book claiming to be authored by God, through the prophets. According to the bible, God gave the land known as “Israel” to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The name “Israel” was from God, when He renamed Jacob Israel. Jacob was promised the same land promised to his father Isaac and Grandfather Abraham were promised.
Reason 25: Zechariah 12:9-10, First Coming and Second Coming 520 B.C.
The two portraits of the Messiah and God’s plan for the nations are clearly presented here in Zechariah 12. It’s important to note, that God is speaking “First Person” through Zechariah as the details of the “Last days” are revealed.
Jerusalem is the focus of the world, the nations are gathered together against the Jews, Jerusalem and Israel. The whole world is on edge as Jerusalem becomes the focus of the nations. These words are being fulfilled today.
Reason 21: The Shroud of Turin Physical Evidence of Jesus Resurrection
Is there any physical evidence Jesus even existed? Yes, beside the archeological evidence found in Jerusalem confirming the testimony of scripture. One of the most amazing and controversial pieces of evidence for Jesus of Nazareth is the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud of Turin is rectangular cloth measuring 4.4 × 1.1 m (14.3 × 3.7 ft), the cloth is woven in a 3 to 1 Herringbone twill. On this cloth is an image of man both the front and back, he appears to be been crucified, his arms and legs are pierced, along with his side. His front and back appear to be whipped, and his head appears to have the wounds from piercings of thorns.
The question asked by is this Jesus’ burial cloth or is it just an artist’s forgery? Critics argue that this was created in the middle ages and is just a forgery. They say carbon dating has proven it has been dated to the 12th century, therefore
Reason 18: Isaiah 53: Jesus Ministry described 700 years before His Birth
Why should anyone believe in Jesus? What proof do we have that he lived? This is a charge skeptics, atheists and secularists often make about Jesus. How would you respond? What proof do we have that Jesus lived? Of course one response is we have a non-Christian witness to the life of Jesus, both Roman and Jewish historians wrote about him. Most of all, we have those who walked and talked with Jesus, they affirmed he exist in the New Testament era.
There is another witness about Jesus, it’s the Old Testament, the Old Testament was written between 1450 to 425 B.C., yet it gives us detailed information that can only be fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ revealed in the New Testament. One of the most powerful examples for any Christian to be armed with is Chapter 53 of Isaiah.
Introduction to the End Times
What is the most powerful weapon on earth?
What is the most powerful weapon on earth? Weapons experts agree it’s the Tsar Hydrogen Bomb detonated on October 30th 1961. The bomb had a yield of 50 Megatons of TNT, it was the most powerful man-made explosion in history. The explosion was the equivalent of 1570x of both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki explosions, it was 10x all the conventional weapons used in WW II. Nikita Khrushchev, head of the Soviet Union, wanted to demonstrate his nation’s power to the world and in particular the United States.
Today most nuclear powers, use the same technology in their own missiles. Where does a Hydrogen bomb get its power? It uses the power present in the Uranium238 atoms and unleashes it the right time to deliver a devastating attack on its intended target. The power was always present in
Dr. Nabeel Qureshi Conversion from Islam to Christianity
Raised as a devout Muslim in the United States, Qureshi grew up studying Islamic apologetics with his family and engaging Christians in religious discussions. After one such discussion with a Christian at his university, the two became friends and began a years-long debate on the historical claims of Christianity and Islam. Nabeel’s resulting journey was chronicled in his first book, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus. In addition to being a New York Times bestseller, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus was awarded the Christian Book Award for the categories of both “Best New Author” and “Best Non-Fiction” of 2015. Christianity Today heralded Qureshi as one of “33 Under 33” in its cover story on emerging religion leaders in July 2014.
Revelation Chapter 21:Eternity: New Heavens, New Earth and New Jerusalem
Where will you be in one million years? Stupid question? To most living in the world there is no perception of what an eternal existence means. Jesus in the Book of Revelation takes us to the window of eternity and peels back the curtain to give us a view of what "Eternity" is going to be like. As a believer in Jesus Christ, you can look forward to an Eternal existence in the presence of God, you will live in God's house, with the "Saints" and angels. In Revelation Chapter 21, Jesus, through John, expands the details of this existence. Jesus wants us to envision our future home, He wants us to invite everybody we know, with the time we have. This presentation cover Revelation Chapter 21:
Revelation Chapter 20: Part 2: The Millennium and the Great White Throne
In the Book of Revelation, God has revealed the future so you can live in anticipation of what is coming. Jesus in the New Testament presented the Kingdom of God. This kingdom was referred to in the Old Testament (Tanach), especially by the prophets Jeremiah, Isaiah,Daniel, Zechariah and others. This kingdom, according to the book of Revelation is 1000-years also known as the Millennium. Many Bible teachers and pastors reject the idea of a literal Millennium, doing so they must reject the literal message of Revelation and create their own. The following is Part II of a literal presentation on the Millennium as presented in scripture, from both the Old and New Testament perspective.
