Be not Ignorant

       Our Earth is millions of years old. The bible tells us and science proves it.

1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
         In verse 2, the word "was" in the Hebrew is "tohu va bohu", which means and should have been so translated ''became". The only possible deduction from this is that God destroyed the world that was.

2 Peter 3:4-7
5. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6. Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7. But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

   (2 Peter 3:5-7) The error of scoffers.

     For this they willfully forget: The scoffers presume upon the mercy and longsuffering of God, insisting that because they have never seen a widespread judgment of God, that there will never be one. But they willfully forget God’s creation and the judgment God poured out on the earth in the days of Noah.

        #1. A literal belief in Creation, in Adam and Eve, and in Noah’s Flood are essential for a true understanding of God’s working both then and now. To deny these things undermines the very foundations of our faith. Sadly, today it is many Christians who willfully forget these things, putting themselves in the place of scoffers.

       That by the word of God the heavens were of old: The Bible clearly teaches that the active agent in creation was God’s word - He spoke, and creation came into being.

     #2. The world that then existed perished, being flooded with water: Peter’s point is that things on this earth have not always continued the way the are now. The earth was different when God first created it, then it was different again after the flood. Therefore no one should scoff at God’s promise that He will make it different again, judging it not with water, but with fire. The same word that created all matter, and judged the world in the flood will one day bring a judgment of fire upon the earth.
          Dinosaurs in the bible?...

       Let's go to Job Ch.40 and see what God tells Job about the dinosaur.

Job 40:15
Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee (Job); he eateth grass as an ox.

          "behemoth" - the Strong's Concordance H930 - bĕhemowth - an extinct dinosaur a Diplodocus or Brachiosaurus
"I made with thee" -  Don't look over this because our Father is telling Job, I made the Dinosaur and you were there Job, and the Dinosaur was in the first earth age as we went over.

Job 40:16
Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
His massive strength is in his loins: his force doth in his belly's muscles lie.

Job 40:17
He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews are of his stones (sinews from his thighs are firm) are wrapped (and entwined) together.

   cedar - A cedar tree is very tall and God says his tail moves like one. Wow! that's a long tail.

Job 40:18
His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
Job 40:19
He is the chief (first, beginning) of the ways of God: he that made him (fashion, accomplish, make) can make his sword to approach (to draw near, approach) unto him.

       God created the Dinosaurs and God can approach the Dinosaurs if He wants and that is what God is saying to Job.

       So Job, and all people in the World who was ever born, and all that will be born were in the first Earth age in our spiritual body, in a different dimension along with Job.  And when we die we return to our spiritual body in Heaven as God created everyone that ever lived, born, and passed away as God says next in Eccl 12 and Mark 9.

Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured (appeared from another dimension of spiritual bodies before them).

Mark9:3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.

And there appeared unto them Elias ( Elijah) with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.

       Moses and Elijah came to this dimension from their spiritual bodies dimension and Jesus was transformed to His spiritual body all of which were in this flesh age but not in flesh bodies and Peter, and James, and John all saw them together.

        I pray that this has been as enlightening for you to read as it was for me, and to bring it to you in this message.
                     God bless.

Ah, dinosaurs never coexisted

Ah, dinosaurs never coexisted with man, so how could Job behold them?

Can you prove your god made the dinosaurs? Can you prove job was a real person? Do you have any proof outside of your bible?

You are right the earth is

You are right the earth is millions of years old. ~ 4,500 millions.

So uh. What was god doing all that time before he "created earth" for humans. I get you guys say he is timeless, but why wait around 4.4 billion years? You also say he created the universe, what was he doing for ~14 billion years?
Why would he pick a time slot of a century or 2 to show evidence he was real, then disappear again. In human terms its like Creating the universe when 20, Create earth when 60, wait another 20 years, create humans, wait a day or two, perform a bunch of miracles in a few minutes, then go silent again for a few hours. (Conveniently disappearing when human knowledge expands and everyone has high definition cameras.)

Don't be ignorant by trying

Don't be ignorant by trying to sound like some ancient stone age philosopher and saying stupid shit like "Be not ignorant."

Congratulations. You made a

Congratulations. You made a mistake in the first line: Genesis:1:1-2 1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. WRONG. The universe is about 14 billion years old and the earth is about 4 billion. Please don't worry, you're only off by ten BILLION years. Are you willfully this ignorant??

There's no objective way to determine the age of the universe. It could be a trillion "years" old. We don't know what it is or how large it is. The smart guys just pulled the 14 billion year number out of their butts so that it would seem that they know what they are talking about. One thing we do know for sure and that is that it's ancient by our scale of time measurement. Of course things are being created all of the time in cosmic space.

You are completely wrong.

You are completely wrong. But nice try. Please consider opening a science book and learn how scientists determined the age of the universe... or if you are lazy then just google it

13.8 billion years is part of

13.8 billion years is part of the Big Bang Theory, quote:
They can determine the age of the universe using two different methods: by studying the oldest objects within the universe and measuring how fast it is expanding.. source:

'Waffles' might be a better name for a dog who thinks scientific answers can be seen in the Bible.

Can you name me one creature

Can you name me one creature that has 'poofed' into existence that has no ancestral lineage? And that shares no DNA on genetics with any other creature!
