When did God first appear on Earth?
Soon after arriving in Indonesia in the early 1980’s I remember when I first heard the Indonesian expression Roh Kudus meaning the Holy Spirit that I had the impression it gave me the feeling of a soft gentle loving God. The Indonesian word ‘roh’ meaning ‘spirit’ is probably derived from Arabic as are many Indonesian words. […]
Do you know Him? 你认识他吗？
他爱你，甚至超过于他自己的生命。 He loves you, even much more than His life. 谁爱你？ Who loves you? 神差遣他的独生子到世上来，要使我们藉着他得生命，神爱我们的心，在此就显明了。(约翰一书 4:9） In this was revealed the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. (1 John 4:9) 耶稣对他说：“我就是道路、真理、生命，若不藉着我，没有人能到父那里去。(约翰福音 14:6) Jesus says to him, I am the […]
In the late 1970’s my wife and I were living in Singapore where we did some street witnessing, handing out tracts, mostly on salvation but one tract was a prophetic end-time message, titled “Israel Invaded”. That tract discussed the future invasion of Israel from the northern lands of Gog and Magog, and was based on chapters […]
Two years ago I wrote a post with a Table derived mostly from biblical texts showing that the world was a little over 6000 years old, or in 2014 precisely 6188 years old. Since then I have learned that one of those biblical periods I used was incorrect and as a result the age of […]
Jesus or Muhammad?
— Did they preach the same message? Let us examine the words of these two men, Muhammad of Mecca (Arabia) and Jesus of Nazareth (Israel). We’ll contrast what each taught while they lived on Earth. Jesus lived between 1 BC and 30 AD, while Muhammad lived between 570 AD and 632 AD. The Lord Jesus Christ, through the […]
Some biblical creationists argue for a mature creation as an explanation for the history of Genesis to align with modern cosmological observations. Don DeYoung1 is one who argues that such a view is not refutable, and he is quite right. But neither is any cosmology as really cosmology is not science.2 It is not subject to repeatable laboratory type tests that is normally required […]
In April 2010, Marcus Chown wrote in an article entitled “Time waits for no quasar—even though it should”1 for New Scientist online, “Why do distant galaxies seem to age at the same rate as those closer to us when big bang theory predicts that time should appear to slow down at greater distances from Earth? No one […]
Muhammad ibn Abdallah ibn Abd al-Muttalib was born in Mecca April 20, 570 AD and died in 632 AD. His youth was marked by poverty and rejection. His father died soon after he was born. His mother gave him up for adoption at the age of 2 years old. His foster-mother raised him in the highlands south-east of Mecca, […]
