Gods Plan And Science

God’s Plan And Science
Read from the book of Mark 13:6-8, 12-13, 21-23, 29-31. Now in my sermon today
we will analyze the differences between scientific and biblical studies, before
Christ, and after…. First, scientist believe in what is know as the human
evolution. Now according to the Encarta encyclopedia the Human Evolution, is the
biological and cultural development of the species Homo sapiens, or human
beings. Now, scientist say that a large number of fossil bones and teeth have
been found at various places throughout Africa, Europe, and Asia. Tools of
stone, bone, and wood, as well as fire hearths, campsites, and burials, also
have been discovered and excavated. As a result of these discoveries, a picture
of human evolution during the past 4 to 5 million years has emerged. Humans,
along with our extinct close ancestors, and as they say, our nearest living
relatives, the African apes, are sometimes placed together in the family
Hominid. They believe that between 7 and 20 million years ago, primitive
ape-like animals were widely distributed on the African and, later, on the
Eurasian continents. This is their justification for us, humans, being here
today. In other words, they believe we evolved from monkeys. Now I’m no
seminary school alumnae, I have not a BA in theology, I don’t have a MA in
philosophy, nor do I have a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies, but I do have b-i-b-l-e.


Church I have God’s word, and if God said it, that’s all that matters. If
you have bibles would you turn with me, to the book of Genesis: Chapter 1 Verses
26-28, and Genesis: Chapter 2 Verses 6 ; 7. Please stand for the reading of
God’s word. There you’ll find these words: Chapter 1: 26 And God said, let
us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over
the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over
all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So
God created man in his own image, in the image of God created him; male and
female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every
living thing that moveth upon the earth. Chapter 2: 6 But there went up a mist
from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 But when the Lord
God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life; and man became a living soul. This is just one analogy of
Scientists’ Man vs. God’ Plan. In further evaluation of scientific thought,
I’ve found that scientist and sociologist tend to believe that the reason for
the school terrors of 99, the reason for a little middle schooled boy murdering
a little elementary girl, and the reason for the wrath of teenage students on
their peers, is the fault of social diversity and ethnicity. The Christians are
beginning to quote that famous scripture…”Train up your child in the way
that he should go, and when he gets old, he will not depart from it.” Well
Christians God has not given us the spirit of fear, but he has given’ us his
power, a sound mind, he’s given’ us love and joy…If you look back to my
beginning text you’ll find that it was already foretold by the Lord. The youth
today, are afraid to praise the Lord, they’re scared of what people will say,
they’re afraid of being persecuted by the friends, but I come to let you know
that if you read in the book of the Gospel According to John, you find in
chapter 15 verse 18, that Jesus tells us, “Just as sure as they talked me,
they’re surely gonna talk about you. They?re also afraid, and now fearful
for their lives, they are afraid that if they serve the Lord in their schools
they just may not live to see another day, well if you refer again to my opening
text, in Mark Chapter 13 verse 13, you’ll find that God tells us that if you
are in him, in the last days, you will be hated by those who don’t believe in
him…But the Lord says that if you endure until the end you will surely have
the victory, you will win the war, and fly away to a home on God’s celestial
shore. Hallelujah. You got babies makin’ babies. I heard one say, ” I was
lookin’ for love”. They’re layin’ up, lettin’ these thugs, girls and
guys, take advantage of ?em. Well I come today to tell you that if you look in
the book of 1st John 4 and 8, you’ll find out that God is love. If you lookin’
for love, think about when Jesus was stretch on Calvary’s cross. He hung and
he died. Why? So the we may live eternally with him, if we believe. Now that’s
love… Romans 12 and 1 says. “I beseech ye therefore brethren by the mercies
of God that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice holy and acceptable unto
God, which is your reasonable service.” Now if you ain’t married and you
wanna make it in to heaven you and got no business sleepin’ around and
fornicatin’ with your sisters husband, or your bother’s wife. Oh see, now I
didn’t come to sugar coat nothin’ you might as well get with me…If I’m
preaching right now turn to ya’ neighbor, give him a high – five and say”neighbor that youth, is on fire”….Shout Yea. Ye-ea Yeah. These plagues
are not just coincidental, they are warnings from the Lord. Warning us and
lettin’ us know that time, is of the essence, that time, is not on your side,
time, is winnin’ up, it’s time to get right with God, It’s time to stop
bein’ paper chasers, and time to start bein’ chasers of the word. ***Well
pastor, Ain’t I got time.*** I come to tell you that no man knows the day or
the hour at which the son of man shall appear. Gabriel is on that horn, and
he’s gettin’ ready to blow, when that great trumpet sounds and my Lord and
Savior comes in riding on a cloud, will you be ready? How many of you all
believe that he’s comin’ back. If you believe turn to your neighbor and say
neighbor I believe that he’s comin’ back, he’s coming back, shout
yeah……….. In closing, I wanna chat with ya just for a little while on the
Christian approach to these plagues…..1. you’ve got to humble yourself
before God, and turn from your wicked ways…2. you’ve got to pray. Why?
Because the prayers of the righteous availeth much. When you find your self in
the midst of a trial, in the midst of heart ache, your children won’t do
right, your husband has lost his job, your wife thinking more about her
cosmetics than she is about food being on the kitchen table….No that he dwells
in the midst of your praise….See you’ve gotta be like Job when he’d lost
all he had he still rejoiced in the Lord……You’ve gotta be like Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego, in other words you’ve got to have faith in
God…You’ve gotta believe that in the midst of your suffering, God will show
up and show out…You’ve got to understand that he is coming back for a church
without a spot or wrinkle…You can’t be sittin’ up in here worried about
your money being lost by the banking systems, as a result of the Y2K. I heard
one preacher say that Y2K stand s for yield to the King. I wanna know today have
you stocked up on your water and can goods for the Y2K, have you loaded up your
cabinets with a little bit of faith, have you loaded up with a little bit of the
living water, I’m talking about the water that’ll be like Kool-aid and
Quench your thirst…Until you’ll have to thirst no more. I’m talking by the
word of the Lord….Have you Checked the BIOS and the Random Access Memory of
your computer, to make sure that it had been transformed to be Y2K compliant, in
other words have you been transformed by the renewing of you mind. Finally have
you Defragged your hard drive, so that your computer will run a little smoother
when Y2K confronts us, in other words have you been washed in the blood of the
crucified one, have you been to as Lashun Pace-Rhodes says, God’s Chemical
Laboratory of Redemption…..If you’ve been delivered stand up on the legs
that God has blessed you with, and help me praise the Lord.
