The Deception of Evolution
I'm amazed to see how this evolution deception is spreading throughout the churches today. Man in his quest to gain worldly knowledge is casting away the plain truth of God's Word and a "thus saith the Lord" in favor of worldly wisdom. End time prophecy reveals we are living in the last days, so I suppose this kind of thing can be expected, as the Bible says:
2 Timothy 4:3 ...'For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.'
And what is sound doctrine? ....
Hebrews 4:3 ...'the works were finished from the foundation of the world.'
Genesis 2:1-2 ...'Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.'
Exodus 20:11 ...'For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.'
We get two clear truths from the above verses. 1. If you believe in evolution, then you have to believe that this world CONTINUES to evolve throughout it's life. And yet God clearly states above that this world was FINISHED from the very foundation of creation. Therefore, if it was finished, then there can be no evolution. The physical and biological laws that govern the natural world were also finished.
Also, 2. God said He made the heaven and earth in 6 DAYS, so why do we need to question it? No matter what man says in his "wisdom", God has said that He created this world in 6 days. Now I would expect unbelievers to question this, because they do not believe in God or the Bible. But for professing Christians to question the authenticity of God's Word and to question the 6 day creation is beyond me. They are deceived, pure and simple. As soon as you question the Word of God, you have allowed Satan to gain a foothold in your faith and before you know it your faith will be in pieces.
1 Corinthians 3:19 ...'For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.'
Do you see? God knew that man would come in his "wisdom" and question what God has said. But it is utter foolishness.
Now many in the church are saying that the 6 days could be 6 periods of time or 6 thousand years, as the Word of God says that a day with God is as a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8). Well, for starters, I believe the "day as a thousand years" statement is a prophetic one and in no way changes the 6 days of creation, (see 6000 year timeline prophecy). And if God says a DAY in the creation account, then why can't we just believe that is what God meant, ONE DAY. Also, I believe God did something purposely to the creation order to dispell this kind of rubbish that man comes up with. What is the purpose of the sun? It is the life force in which God has used for plant life right? As without the sun, plant life would just die. Now take a look at this:
On the THIRD DAY, God created plant life (Genesis 1:12-13).
On the FOURTH DAY, God created the sun (Genesis 1:16-19).
So if the "third day" was actually a thousand years or some other period of time, then how could the plant life survive without the sun for this length of time? God didn't create the sun until the day AFTER the plant life. Go ask any worldly scientist and they will tell you how important the sun is for life to exist on this earth. The fact is the heaven and earth was created in 6 actual days (24hr periods), which ties in fine with the sun being created the DAY after plant life.
The amazing thing is, the "scientists" who professing Christians believe in regards to "evolution" are the very same people who will tell you there is no God! And yet these Christians say that evolution could be true just because the scientists say so. So if you go down this slippery path, it could also be true that there is no God right? Because that is what the scientists are saying also. Do you see how dangerous this is?
Friend, this world is coming to an end, the signs of the end times show how close we are to the second coming of Christ Jesus. Satan knows his time is short (Revelation 12:12), and his deceptions are increasing in strength. If we do not put our trust in the Word of God and stick to a plain "thus saith the Lord", then we will be in grave danger of being taken in by Satan's deceptions. Evolution being one of them!
One of the three angels messages in Revelation 14 points us to worship the Creator:
Revelation 14:6-7 ...'And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.'
This message is being said with a LOUD VOICE. In other words, it's a very important message, which tells us to worship Him (God) that made heaven, and earth and the sea and the fountains of waters. Those words are taken from the fourth commandment, which says God created this earth in six days and rested the seventh day and blessed the seventh day as the sabbath.
Now the mark of the beast will be down to worship. Will we worship God, or worship the beast kingdom (Rev. 13) with it's worldly "wisdom". If we let man (ultimately Satan) convince us that we cannot trust the Word of God and that we should trust in man's "science" instead, then we will end up worshipping the beast kingdom and will be lost.
Friend, I plead with you to get back to God's Word and put your faith in what He says!
