God’s Fingerprints - Part 2

 

Zechariah 12:1 (NKJV) - Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.”

 

God’s Fingerprints are on…

 

He is God; who formed the earth and made it, He established it; He did not create it empty, He formed it to be inhabited!                  Isaiah 45:18

 

1.) The Earth’s unique ability to support life!

  • Liquid water on surface, Liquid iron at its core, Elements (N, O2 and CO2) in atmosphere, large moon, Sun and its distance.

Rigged Dice have Riggers!!!

 

 

 

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand? Isaiah 40:12

 

2.) The Oceans, Seas and Rivers.

  • Ocean’s regulating affect on our climate.

- Seattle, WA and Bemidji, MN – both 47°N! (Avg. Temp difference 27°!)

  • Evidence of a recent past…

- Salt & sediment levels of Oceans are very low; Mississippi River Delta; Niagara Falls Retreat.

 

 

 

He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.   You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains…The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place that you appointed for them. Psalm 104:5-8

 

3.) The Rocks.

  • Layers & Dating

- Rock layer folds: China plates vs. modeling clay.

- Coal, Diamonds & Carbon 14 – WHAT!!???

  • The fossils

- Dinosaur skin, footprints, eggs and coprolites…Need lots of sediment, rapid burial by water, Found worldwide…

- Marine fossils on mountaintops, Dino-death pose, Dino soft-tissue?

 

 

8Speak to the earth, and it will teach you…Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this…   Job 12:8-9
