How many days would an egg become a chick, do you know ?

21 days.

If there is no GOD, do you think an egg can turn itself into a chick ?

What are the evolving stages of a butterfly ?

Egg -> worm -> butterfly.

Can the worm, by its own power, changes itself into one that flies ?

What are the evolving stages of a frog ?

Egg -> tadpole -> frog, which happens in a few weeks.

Darwin's theory of evolution requires billions of years for a tadpole to change into a frog ! billions of years for a worm into a butterfly ! Do you still believe "Darwin's Evolution" ?

So, there is a GOD and He created everything, visible and invisible.

Below are posts which I wrote for my "Yahoo group" on invisible things.

They are as I wrote them except one change which I made to better reflect what I think now. Also the "epilogue" is written now.

Hope it may be useful to you.

On Invisible things (1)

We cannot see electromagnetic waves, but we know that they exist, or else radio, TV, cellphones, ..., would not work.

What else exist ? which are invisible to us ?

SATAN AND FALLEN ANGELS

It is of paramount importance that we know Satan exists, as well as fallen angels.

Satan became proud, and wanted to take the place of GOD himself, [2 Enoch 29:3],
(*) 2nd Book of Enoch
http://wjesus.org/enoch2.htm

There are angels under Satan, and they rebelled with Satan too.

EVIL SPIRITS AND SIREN

Apart from Satan and fallen angels, there are evil spirits and sirens.

From the First Book of Enoch,
http://wjesus.org/enoch0.htm

we know that soon after Creation, some angels lusted after human women, and had sex with them, bearing children which were half angel and half human. They were the giants of ancient times. Those giants did violent and cruel things, making the whole world corrupted, therefore GOD made a great flood to destroy the ancient world, save only Noah and his family in the ark.

But the spirits of the giants, GOD allowed them to remain till Judgment Day, not imprisoning them at once. They are the evil spirits. The spirits of the women who were wives to the angels became sirens.

We cannot see evil spirits nor sirens, just as we cannot see Satan and fallen angels, but they do exist.

GUARDIAN ANGELS

Jesus plainly told us in [Matthew 18:10] : "See that you do not despise one of these little ones; for I tell you that in heaven their angels always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven."

Therefore we know that guardian angels exist, and they care for the true followers of Jesus Christ.

WHAT DO SATAN, FALLEN ANGELS, EVIL SPIRITS, SIRENS DO ?

Apart from tempting people to do sinful acts (dishonor parents, hatred/murder, adultery, greed, bear false witness, ...), Jesus said of them,

Jesus : "For verily, verily I say unto you, he that hath the spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil, who is the father of contention, and he stirreth up the hearts of men to contend with anger, one with another." [3 Nephi 11:29]

(*) Book of Mormon
http://wjesus.org/bmormon.txt

Therefore beware, whenever you think your pride is being offended by someone, evil is there to tempt you to sin.

Remember firmly Jesus' teaching : "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." [Matthew 6:14-15].

Apart from this, whenever you want to speak non-truths, not following Jesus' teachings -- Jesus : "Let what you say be simply 'Yes' or 'No'; anything more than this comes from evil." [Matthew 5:37],
evil is there to tempt you.

Jesus : "He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies." [John 8:44]



Beware of invisible evil things.


On Invisible things (2)

Satan, fallen angels, because they are angels in nature -- though fallen, all have the capabilities of angels.

POWER OF SATAN

We get a good picture of the capabilities of Satan in [Job].

  1. Satan is able to incite a group of people to do his bidding, in this case, murder and rob : [Job 1:14-15], [Job 1:17],

    ... there came a messenger to Job, and said, "The oxen were ploughing and the asses feeding beside them; and the Sabeans fell upon them and took them, and slew the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell you." [Job 1:14-15]

    ... there came another, and said, "The Chaldeans formed three companies, and made a raid upon the camels and took them, and slew the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you." [Job 1:17]

  2. Satan is able to send fire from heaven to destroy animals and people on earth : [Job 1:16]

    While he was yet speaking, there came another, and said, "The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them; and I alone have escaped to tell you." [Job 1:16]

  3. Satan is also to make hurricane wind to do his bidding : [Job 1:18-19],

    While he was yet speaking, there came another, and said, "Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house; and behold, a great wind came across the wilderness, and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young people, and they are dead; and I alone have escaped to tell you." [Job 1:18-19]

  4. Satan is able to inflict illness on people : [Job 2:7],

    Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD, and afflicted Job with loathsome sores from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head. [Job 2:7].

  5. Satan is able to prevent people from falling into sleep : [Job 7:4]

    Job : "When I lie down I say, 'When shall I arise, and the night be gone?' But the night is long, and I am full of tossing till the dawn." [Job 7:4]

  6. Satan is able to make people dream of whatever dreams of his own design :

    Job : "When I say, 'My bed will comfort me, my couch will ease my complaint,' then thou dost scare me with dreams and terrify me with visions, .... " [Job 7:13-14]

Therefore we see Satan (as well as fallen angels) have capabilities comparable to angels. But should we fear them ? No, because GOD has the final say. Without GOD's approval, they can do NOTHING.

If GOD approves, then we might say, it is the hand of GOD.

Because of this, Job said that he would like to sue GOD in a court for wronging him. Job : "There is no umpire between us, who might lay his hand upon us both." [Job 9:33].

But GOD did not answer Job directly, instead, GOD asked Job lots of questions about His creations -- weather, stars, animals (goats, ass, ox, ostrich, horse, hippopotamus, crocodile).

Job could not answer.

I think no one on earth can comprehend the wisdom and knowledge of GOD's creations. We humans even do not know fully how our own body functions; even doctors, they don't know fully either.

GOD said to Job further in [Job 40:8], GOD : "Wilt thou also disannul my judgment ? "

Therefore we should put full faith in GOD's judgment when He approves disaster on us, no matter how severe the disaster might be. GOD must have thought of it and has His reasons.

Lastly, I would say that GOD's promise of blessing/curse for one who keeps/breaks GOD's laws/commandments will hold true even in the midst of afflictions by Satan, fallen angels, evil spirits, ...




P.S. GOD approved of Job even Job said that GOD wronged him, and would sue GOD in court. But GOD did not approve of Job's three friends who said that GOD did not wrong him.

Do you know why ?

What would you like your children to be ? One who always thinks carefully before forming his opinion, or one who thinks not and follows others blindly ?






On Invisible things (3)

Many worship Satan, fallen angels, evil spirits, sirens, ....

They consider them as gods.

We must not do so, we must firmly keep the first of the Ten Commandments -- worship none but LORD, [Exodus 20:3].

Otherwise, we would take in their spirits, get cursed, and share their ultimate fate -- eternal punishment.

There is one and only one spirit that we should take in, i.e. the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, or Holy Spirit.

Read the Bible, read the Gospels ([Matthew], [Luke], [John]), learn from, and imitate Jesus, in whose body dwells the HOLY SPIRIT.

Jesus should be the model for all mankind.

If you believe Jesus to be the condescension of GOD, and confirm this belief by immersing yourself in water (baptism, which you can do yourself in a river, or pond, or even in a bath-tub), and pray to GOD to baptize you in the name of GOD, of Jesus, of HOLY SPIRIT, you WILL receive this spirit of TRUTH.

Yet you still have to study the Bible, look closely to what Jesus taught and did, and imitate Jesus. What children on earth would not imitate and learn from their fathers by observing what they do ? If you decide to follow Jesus, should you not observe and imitate what Jesus did ?

Learn from Jesus how to keep the commandments of GOD, lest the Pharisees' way of keeping commandments be a heavy burden to you. Keeping GOD's commandments is the only way to be in the love of GOD and be blessed and not cursed.

Here I wish to talk a little more about Jesus.

Before GOD created anything, GOD was actively thinking and planning what He was to create. He had a clear visualization of everything before He started creating.

First, He created Jesus, a body with flesh and blood like we human beings. (Read [Revelation 3:14] Jesus : "The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of GOD's creation.").

In other words, He himself "appeared" in the body form of Jesus.

Then, THROUGH THE HANDS OF JESUS (or more accurately, through the MOUTH of Jesus), He created the earth and everything.

Therefore, in a sense, Jesus IS THE CREATOR.

This creator came down to earth, to be born of Mary, and yielded himself to be crucified on the cross.

His aim is to redeem us from the sin inherited from our first parents, by showing us "the way" through his own example -- lawful and right in the eyes of GOD even onto death. (Our first parents, Adam and Eve, were beguiled by Satan to consider things in the light of "good to us ? or evil to us ?", and disbelieved and disobeyed GOD.)

After that, Jesus was resurrected, was seated on the right side of GOD, and was given ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH.

Moreover, Jesus will be the judge on the Great Judgment Day.

Believe not in theologists, but in the teachings of Jesus, because the teachings of Jesus will be the plummet (standard) on Judgment Day.

(On Judgment Day, Paul will rise up and condemn many "Christians", "theologists" of today, just as Moses will rise up and condemn the Pharisees, who said that they believed in Moses).






On Invisible things (4)

We human beings are accustomed to think that if we, human, cannot do a thing, then that thing is impossible.

If we have this mindset, then we arrive at many wrong conclusions, and therefore, wrong actions.

Who would think it possible, that a farm girl from China, who has not studied music, could compose more than 1000 songs !

(*) Psalm from China (songs composed and sung by a farm girl in China)
(MP3 files, of average size 1.5 Mbytes, therefore download will take some time. Be patient).
http://wjesus.org/xm.htm

Here I list some "impossibles", which we may arrive at wrong conclusions if unaware,

  1. Things moved, disturbed without human hand. [1 Samuel 5:1-4]

    The Philistines found that their idol (graven image) fall down. They did not know who did it, and they put the idol back. But the next day, the idol fell down again and, moreover, were broken into pieces.

  2. Things discussed in private room known to outsider. [2 Kings 6:8-12]

    The king of Syria warred against the king of Israel. On many occasions, what he planned to do was known to the king of Israel, and he thought that some of his servants must be spying for the king of Israel, but in truth, it was not.

  3. Things appear out of nowhere. [1 Kings 17:8-16]

    The flour and oil appeared from nowhere.

  4. Food seems to be inexhaustible. [2 Kings 4:42-44]

  5. Little food, but can satisfy many people.

    In the New Testament, it was recorded that Jesus could create food out of little food for thousands of people.

If you read the Bible, you would find many "impossibles". Do not dismiss them as fiction, because GOD (and angels) can do much more than we human do.

GOD is the creator of all the physical laws in Physics, and also is the one who sustains all the physical laws, making them work.

Nothing is impossible with GOD.


P.S.

An egg, brooded over by a hen, becomes a chick complete with eyes, legs, feather, internal organs, .... in 21 days, is a miracle, if you think carefully.

If you think of butterfly, of frog, ...., they are all miracles (the many changes in their phases of life), but we human are so accustomed to them that we see them not.






On Invisible things (5)

[Ezekiel 8, 9, 10]

Ezekiel was a priest that was captured by the Babylonians some years before Jerusalem was burnt and destroyed.

While he was in exile, GOD told him much about the reasons why GOD would destroy Jerusalem and the neighbouring countries. It was due to sins of various sort.

GOD showed him the vision of the destruction of Jerusalem -- GOD summoned six angels who were in charge of the city. GOD told one angel to mark on the forehead of all those who grieved for the sins committed in the city, and told the other angels to kill all who were not thus marked.

Some years later, Jerusalem was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar according to what GOD showed Ezekiel in the vision.

From here, we see that,

  1. GOD assigns angels to oversee every city, and GOD Himself sees everything,

  2. GOD would not spare those who sin and would not repent. GOD's judgment would surely come, even it may be years later.

  3. GOD preserve the life of ALL those who partake not in the sins of the place, but grieve for the sins of the place.

During WWII, some soldiers survived, some not. These were not chance events, but it was GOD who decided who survived and who perished.

Not only so, even everyday events, they are not chance events. Some have accidents (car accidents ....), illnesses (cancer ....), depression (sleeplessness, ....), ..., all these are decided by GOD and executed by His angels.

Therefore fear GOD and keep His commandments. Value all His teachings, including His teachings on cleanliness and food. You disregard the teachings of GOD to your own hurt.

Also care for the morality of the place we live in, for GOD clearly showed us that those who care not the sins of the place, and care only their own enjoyment, will not survive.

Encl.

(Only [Ezekiel 9], for the rest, you can find in the Bible)

[Ezekiel 9]

He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand.

And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar.

And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side; And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary.

Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.

And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem?

Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not. And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.

And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.






Epilogue

In the gospels books [Matthew] [Mark] [Luke] [John], it was recorded that evil spirits tormented many people.

For example, in [Matthew 17:14-18], an evil spirit entered a boy, threw the boy into fire, threw the boy into water, made him convulse.

You may think such things do not happen now.

No, it does happen -- evil spirits, Satan, fallen angels, ...., do torment human beings.

(But today GOD does not allow "TOTAL possession of a man by evil spirit", as in [Matthew 8:28-32], where one totally lost one's thinking/personality.)

There is a book available from "Project Gutenberg", called "The Haunted House - a true ghost story, by Walter Hubbell". The author was eye-witness of the wickedness of evil spirits in Amherst (Canada) in the 1870s. The author, as well as other people, "talked" with the evil spirits that haunted the house and afflicted a girl there, an act which I think dangerous, as GOD taught us that "medium" are to be put to death. (Jesus did talk with spirits who tormented people, but Jesus never befriended nor be influenced by them.) Also, the evil spirits claimed to be "souls of dead persons", this I believe to be a lie -- those are either evil spirits, or fallen angels, and not souls of the dead, because of their power.

GOD gives angels, human beings FREE WILL, they can choose to be good, or to be evil. So the world is full of wicked things, visible as well as invisible.

We should seek protection from GOD, as GOD's promise,

Keep the law/commandments => Blessing;
Break the law/commandments => Curse

will forever be true.

GOD said in [Psalm 50:12-15] : "If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world and all that is in it is mine. Do I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats ? Offer to GOD a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High; and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me."

GOD said the above because He knows that many in the world, visible or invisble, has chosen evil, and it would be dangerous for us, and He makes it plain that He is willing to help us.

If you do not know that there is GOD, the Creator, who is Jesus, and attempt to face the world alone, which is full of wicked men and spirits, your burden is heavy indeed. Keep the laws and commandments of GOD, and rest in His promise in [Exodus 20:5-6] : "for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And showing mercy unto thousands (of generations) to those that love me, and keep my commandments."






Value the Bible, what are written in it are FACTS of the world, which we can learn much.
