In Other Words Tuesday


If God said that Jonah was swallowed by a whale, then the whale swallowed Jonah, and we do not need a scientist to measure the gullet of a whale. ~ A. W. Tozer ~ Amen, if God said it, then that is how it is. We do not have to prove anything that God says, it is total truth. There are no tests that need to be run, no facts to be intensely investigated. We do not need to compare reality against fiction, the word of God is the only reality check we will ever need. Never doubt the precious , powerful word of God. If God said it, that is all I will ever need to know. End of story!!

Amen, Denise. I once saw a demonstration at Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale. Their pastor, Bob Coy, took traffic cones (the big orange ones) and outlined the length and width of whale. Then he stood right smack in the middle of it. He looked like a little ant! He said "okay, is that good for you guys? everyone okay with this...do you get that this can happen now?" Everyone was laughing...He did it to drive the point home but I'm with you. God said it...that settles it for me!!

So good to have you back my sweet sister! Blessings to you today, abundant blessings!

There are so many people who try to explain away the Bible.
Our God invented imagination....do we not think He has the best imagination of all of us? Can you just imagine Him thinking...Hmmm, let's give this story a neat twist....let's bring in a whale.
And then you have the story of Pinocchio....wonder where people think that whole idea came from?

People love to watch movies created by people with creative imaginations- but then when they read the Bible they don't think that it could possibly be taken literally. Sad.

It is good to have you back!

Amen! God's Words are the total truths. I am so thankful He has given us His Words.

How are you?? I've had to use more self control in my blogging and haven't been able to visit everybody as much as I would have liked, so I thought I'd stop by to check on you. I hope you are doing better. I liked your post today. I have been through so much lately with the Lord setting me free from so many things that it is not hard for me to know that when God says it, it is true. He has been so real to me that faith is a no brainer.

We do not have to prove anything that God says.

I completely agree, Denise.

I just have to tell you AGAIN...I am glad you are back! I have not been able to read e-mails yet...end of the month work and all that jazz....and we had COMPANY tonight...in the way of a little boy and his brand new baby brother...of course their mom and dad came too! But by the time they left...well, we were pooped and I didn't check e-mail again. Maybe I can tomorrow during a break!

I love you! By the way...go meet a dear friend Jensmere on my blog. Iposted her link a couple of days ago. You have much reading to catch up on with everyone!!!

Don't rush on mine...I haven't posted much except for baby pictures and the Bible Study!

Sandi said...

Welcome back!

Your blog is so true. I just saw on TV yesterday someone making fun of people who "beleive the story of Noah's Ark". I was so made he called us stupit. I turned the TV off and prayed for him.

Girl - love your straight point and case to this quote. If God said so - so it is - Amen!

Nemo @ daily-dabble.com said...

AMEN! Well said sister!

Now if only it was that easy for non-believers to believe the Bible...

Hope you're having a blessed Sunday.
