Creation Devotional August 24 - History

Daily Devotional – August 24



Often, we think man is more intelligent now than in the past. Have you considered when man began to write?

  • One of the great wonders of the ancient world was the library of Alexandria built in 300 B.C. and located in Alexandria, Egypt. This vast library contained over a million scrolls.
  • In 900 B.C., King Solomon writes in Ecclesiastes, “my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end….” (Ecclesiastes 12:12).
  • In 2000 B.C., Job wrote, “Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were printed in a book!” (Job 19:23). Here we see Job, writing some 500 years before Moses (1500 B.C.), contemplating printing a book!
  • Going back further, we find in Babylon, on one of King Ashurbanipal’s tablets, a comment that he “loved to read the writing of the age before the Flood.” His library had over 100,000 volumes! Arguments that writing did not exist in the time of Moses are not true. Here a king records that he was reading writing prior to the Flood of Noah’s day (2348 B.C.).
  • Another Babylonian tablet lists the ten kings of Babylon who lived before the Flood, in the Bible; Noah was the tenth generation from Adam. Man was created intelligent from the beginning! The evolutionary idea that man started as a caveman who was an unintelligent, knuckle-dragging idiot is not true. Man was created intelligent from the beginning.


Man was made in the image of God to communicate, using both speech and writing, from the very beginning. Oh that my words were now written!


Oh that they were printed in a book! That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock forever!

~ Job 19:23, 24
