Science And The Bible…(Video)

Posted on

 

Some say that science is the enemy of faith. Many believe that theories such as evolution and the Big Bang attempt to offer an non-biblical explanation of how the earth and the heavens came to be, and how life eventually populated the planet. .

But videos like the one above help to show us that not all science conflicts with the word of God. Some study disciplines such as archaeology actually help to validate the Holy Bible, while dismissing ideas and beliefs which conflict with the inspired Word given to us by the Lord.

The video is less than twelve minutes long, but is told in an entertaining and informative way. Watching it is time well spent…

But you are called out.

Praising God – The First Thing!

Do you know that praising God is the best thing to do first before anything else? Have you ever been in a situation that you feel all alone? Or have you encountered a difficult situation in your life and you don’t know what to do, like losing your job or suffering the loss of someone very close to your heart? Consider the good times such as when you receive a raise from your boss or earn high marks at school? What do you usually do during these moments? Praising God makes every circumstance of our lives complete, essential, and eminently worthwhile.

Webster defines the word praise as to say good things about and it is synonymous to words such as admire, commend, extol, honor, and worship. A definition of Christian praise is the joyful thanking and adoring of God, the celebration of His goodness and grace.1 This simply implies that the act of praising is rightfully due to God alone.

Praising God – Why?
Why is praising God important? The reasons are countless. First, God deserves to be praised and He is worthy to receive our praise:

  • “For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods” (Psalm 96:4).
  • “Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom” (Psalm 145:3).
  • “I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies” (2 Samuel 22:4).
  • “You are worthy, our LORD and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being” (Revelation 4:11).

Second, praising God is useful and favorable for us. By praising God, we are reminded of the greatness of God! His power and presence in our lives is reinforced in our understanding. “Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant” (Psalm 135:3).

Third, praise discharges strength in faith, which causes God to move on our behalf. “From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger” (Psalm 8:2). Praising God also transforms the spiritual environment that we have. 2 Chronicles 5:13-14 clearly illustrates the alteration that happened when the Levites gave praise and thanks to the Lord and the temple was filled with a cloud signifying the glory of God. “The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: ‘He is good; his love endures forever.’ Then the temple of the LORD was filled with a cloud, and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the temple of God.”

Fourth, God inhabits the atmosphere of praise. Psalm 22:3 says, “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel” (KJV). If we want to see a clear manifestation of God’s blessings and grace, all we need to do is to praise Him with all our heart, our mind, and our soul…

Praise Him…(Psalm 103)

He has established His kingdom in the heavens

And has shown us but a portion of His powerful abilities

Yes, He is to be praised among all the world.

 

Raise your voices to the Almighty, call out His name

You who live all about His dominion and do His bidding

Yes, He is to be praised among all the world.

 

Bow low before the Lord of Lords and set your mind on Him

For the works of His hand show He is the one Almighty Being

Yes, He is to be praised among all the world.

 

For the Lord’s love is with those who respect Him

And with all who keep His commandments in their hearts

Yes, He is to be praised among all the world.
