Scientists would say it’s a myth that God created the world in six days. It is indeed NO myth. The problem is that humans try to measure God with their human standards. The truth is that God will never fit man’s measuring tape because God’s measurement is different from ours.
It was written, “And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.” (Matt. 17:2). God’s essence is like light. The Bible said that there is no darkness in God. So if God is light, God must also travel as fast as light does. Light travels 186,000 miles per second, 700 miles per hour. When men take two days to travel around the globe once, God would have traveled around the globe 309 times in only one second.
So when we equate this into days, one day of man’s time is already 27 million days for God. God’s speed is a lot faster than ours. Nothing can match up if we use our speed to measure God’s as God’s is different from ours. You might still wonder about the dinosaurs and a lot of other things. I am just looking forward to asking God about all those when I am in Heaven because we are going to have a lot of time there and I will have plenty of time to find out everything from God in Heaven.
But you have to make sure you will get to Heaven first, otherwise you won’t be able to ask how He created everything else. You might wonder why God didn’t put everything in the Bible about everything else. If He did, the Bible would be tremendously huge. It was written, “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.” (John 21:25).
The Bible we were given is small enough that we can carry it with our hands, as it was written that, “And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” (John 20:30-31).
The purpose of the Bible is for us to know enough to believe in Jesus and be able to have a life in Him, so that we can live a life that is eternal and abundant in God. The purpose of the word of God is not to tell us everything, such as how the dinosaurs were created, but to give us examples to follow, lessons to learn, and eternal life to be gained. If you miss all these, you are basically missing life. And you will end up living without hope, not knowing what the next turn is.
The word of God is very precious and I encourage you to read the word of God every day and have your hearts constantly renewed. The Bible has enough for you as a guide book for here and now on earth. When you get to the Heaven, you will get to sit in a 'theater' to see how everything was created by God. But you have to make sure that you can get to Heaven first. Otherwise, everything you are doing under the sun without God is in vain.
If you haven’t accepted Jesus yet, I invite you to accept Him today. You don’t have to be perfect to accept Jesus. All you need to do is to submit your heart to Him and accept Him into your life. When you believe by faith, you have eternal life in His name. It required of you to take action to accept Jesus. It’s Him who can change you from the inside out.
Transformation will only begin by receiving Jesus. Amen.
