Increase Your Knowledge

The Almighty tells Daniel that the end times will be characterized by an increase of knowledge.

But you, Daniel, close up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge. Daniel 12:4
While all of this knowledge causes pride that spreads sin at an unprecedented pace, there is a positive side. The church is able to:
  • Share Jesus with unreached and closed people groups
  • Grow in faith through an avalanche of Biblical material
  • Provide private Biblical counsel to those in need

Paul penned these immortal words: “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” – 1 Corinthians 15:57

One of Satan's greatest weapons which he uses to steal the hearts and minds of mankind is known as the Theory of Evolution. Recent polls reveal that less than 40 percent of Americans believe in evolution. Nevertheless, it is the only theory of origin taught in our public schools from kindergarten through grad school. This theory

• Causes people to doubt the existence of God
• Destroys morality due to reliance on "situational ethics"
• Destines people to consider themselves their own gods (humanism)

Our culture can be summed up in one statement: "Almost any behavior begins to look normal if you are exposed to enough of it," a quote by gay activists Marshall Kirk & Hunter Madsen. This "overexposure" has been the approach of evolutionists. Mathematically, we know that evolution is impossible, yet, in the words of Adolph Hitler, "If you say something loud enough and often enough the people will believe it."

The church of Jesus needs to speak up and stand firm upon God's Word. 1 Peter 3:15 tells us, "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."

To help you grow in your faith, I want to recommend two ministries with amazing resources on their websites. You will find material from many brilliant Christ-following scientists. They boldly deal with creation, geology, astronomy, dinosaurs, the age of the Earth and much more.

We are reminded by a great British pastor, George R. Beasley-Murray, to remain faithfully on course. "The Lord who has vacated His tomb has not vacated His throne."
