Creation Devotional August 7 - Biology

Daily Devotional – August 7

Biology

 

Have you ever heard of a bird that sews its nest? This bird, which lives in Southeast Asia, is aptly named the “tailor bird.” The tailor bird starts with large, green tree leaves and pokes holes with its sharp beak along the edges of the leaves. Then, it uses spider webs or grasses to sew the leaves into a cylinder shape. Now the bird builds its nest inside of this cylinder. When the chicks hatch, they are hidden away behind a green curtain of leaves.

 

How does the tailor bird know how to sew? Did the young, female birds go to sewing classes at bird school? No, these birds are born with this ability programmed in their brains. Scientists call this programming “instinct,” but have never really been able to explain from where these instincts come from. It is as if a program was written in the hard drive of their brain. When we see a program, we know there must be a programmer, and this programmer is God.

 

Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power….

~ Job 37:23

Creation Devotional August 6 - Cosmology

Daily Devotional – August 6

Cosmology

 

Step outside on a clear, dark night when there is no moon and see a sweeping band of white across the night sky; it’s the Milky Way galaxy. It looks like someone spilled a bottle of milk as the hazy white area glows, but in reality, it is the light from a vast number of stars.

 

The night sky is filled with hundreds of billions of galaxies, each with millions to trillions of stars with each star varying in color, size, temperature and brightness; we also find neutron stars, pulsars, and novas (star explosions) along with nebulae in all their splendor. The more we study the universe, the more we are amazed by its immensity, complexity, and beauty.

 

In the same way, the more we study the Creator God, the more amazing He becomes to us. His power and divine nature are displayed through the things He has made (Romans 1:20). And the things we can observe are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! (Job 26:14).

 

We should not be surprised at all the incredible things we find in the universe!

 

By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens….

~ Job 26:13a

Daily Devotional – August 5

Biology

 

Tree frogs live in trees, sticking firmly to branches and leaves – even walking upside down on these surfaces. How do they keep from falling off? It’s all in the feet. Close inspection of a tree frog’s foot reveals pads with cracks and crevices from which mucus oozes. This mucus first cleans the dust and dirt off the surface to which the frog wants to cling. Then more mucus oozes out - creating a thin layer of “adhesive” to grip the surface. These tree frogs have feet that both clean and stick. Did these sticky feet happen by accident and chance? How many tree frogs fell to their death before they got it right? Who created sticky feet for the tree frogs? God only had to speak, and it came into existence.

 

Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God….

Daily Devotional – August 4

Biology

 

How does a honeybee, a cold-blooded insect, survive the winter? Bees like to keep their hive at 95oF. But how do they do this? As the temperature becomes cooler, the honeybees form a cluster. Those inside the ball of bees are kept warm, and they rotate with the bees on the outside of the ball so that all have a chance to remain warm. As the temperature continues to cool, the bees will move their flight muscles without flying; you could say the bees are “shivering.” This generates heat, warming the bee cluster further.

 

What if the hive gets too hot in the summer? Some of the bees act as cooling fans, standing at the entrance of the hive and beating their wings creating a breeze. If this does not reduce the hive’s temperature, other bees leave the hive and bring back water that they spread out on the walls of the hive. Now the fanning of the bees causes the water to evaporate and cool the hive.

 

Bees appear to be smart engineers, but they are just programmed to do this. The really smart engineer is the One who programmed this within them, and that is God.

 

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.

~ 1 Chronicles 29:11

Biology

 

Honeybees are cold-blooded, but by moving their flight muscles in a way reminiscent of our shivering, they can generate heat. This ability does more than keep the hive warm on a cold winter day; it protects the hive from predators. Sometimes the hive is threatened with chalkboard fungus. When this happened, researchers have noticed that bees raise the temperature of the hive to kill the fungus. Researchers also found that when the hive is attacked by a giant hornet, the bees swarm the hornet, surround it, and then begin to “shiver,” raising the hive’s temperature to 116oF. The honeybees are unable to sting through the hornet’s tough armor, so they kill it by heat! Amazingly, if they would increase the temperature just one more degree, to 117 degrees Fahrenheit, the bees themselves would die from the heat. How do the bees know this? How do they know what the temperature is in the hive? Remember, they are all working independently to generate this heat. God has given his creatures the ability to stay healthy and protect themselves.

 

They compassed me about like bees.…

Creation Devotional August 2 - History

Daily Devotional – August 2

History

 

The ancient Chinese possessed an unusual knowledge of Bible history that’s they incorporated into their written pictograph language. The most ancient of Chinese writings are called oracle bones in which the pictographs are inscribed on bones and tortoise shells. The inventor of the original Chinese characters obviously had knowledge of the Genesis account. For example, the word for desire or covet is made up of two characters, trees and woman:

Woman + Trees = Desire, Covet

There were two trees in the Garden of Eden, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (the forbidden tree) and the tree of life. In the Genesis account, Eve saw the fruit of a forbidden tree and desired it.

The word difficulty, trouble is made up of tree and garden

Trees + (Garden) Enclosure = Difficulty, Trouble

 

When Adam and Eve ate of that forbidden fruit in the garden, difficulty resulted. Now there would be thorns and thistles and difficulty during childbirth.

 

Not only was the Earth cursed, but now death would enter in. The character meaning, to die, perish is:

Hands + Trees = Mulberry Tree + Mouths = To Die, Perish

 

Note how the two mouths (Adam and Eve) indicating eating fruit from the forbidden tree produced death.

 

These are just a few examples of how the knowledge of the first eleven chapters of Genesis is imbedded in the Chinese pictograph language. When witnessing to the Chinese, you can show them that Christianity is not just a Western religion but that their ancient fathers knew and believed in the One true God of the Bible. The Chinese language is a silent witness to the knowledge of Genesis 1-11.

 

“The tree of life [was] also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil…And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired [covetable]… she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”

~ Genesis 2:9, 3:6

Creation Devotional August 1 - Geology

Daily Devotional – August 1

Geology

 

Chalk is a sedimentary rock made up of a collection of the skeletons of phytoplankton. The White Cliffs of Dover, in southern England, is a picture of this massive graveyard. The cliffs are 350 feet high at the English Channel, while across much of England the beds are 1300 feet thick.

 

Evolutionists believe that such thick chalk deposits require millions of years to accumulate. Under catastrophic conditions caused by the biblical Flood, about 4400 years ago, explosive blooms of tiny organisms produced chalk beds, however, in a short period of time. The oceans during the Flood were warmer with massive nutrient loading from the dead plant and animal life. This caused plankton to multiply enormously. The warm, turbulent seawaters caused these tiny skeletons to amass, die, and settle rapidly to the bottom as pure chalk. This cycle continued until the floodwaters were drained from the continents. The unimaginable scale of these blooms was driven by the availability of nutrients and carbon dioxide from dead creatures, and volcanic activity associated with Noah’s Flood.

 

The purity of chalk deposits is one point of evidence supporting their catastrophic origin. If they formed over millions of years, we should find a wide variety of other marine creatures and sedimentary debris within the deposits. Yet, we do not. A second point of supporting evidence is the occasional discovery of large animal fossils found within these deposits. Both dinosaurs and 6-foot long clams have been found fossilized within the chalk. If large animals were not buried very quickly, they would have rotted away. Chalk beds cover 25% of the Earth’s surface, and it is the purity of these beds, along with the large fossils found within them, that shout “catastrophe deposits”! This is exactly what would be expected from Noah’s Flood.

 

Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

~ Psalm 25:4,5
