Today is Memorial Day

The Historically challenged Young Whippersnappers among us may wonder

What is Memorial Day ?

and how is it different from Veteran's Day ?

Well, for one thing, according to Wikipedia :

"Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veteran's Day" -- which is observed annually on November 11.

"Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving,

while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans."

The Circus is no more

Known as The Greatest Show on Earth, The Circus began in 1891.

but it also details some surprising 'spin offs' from it.

I think you will find this verrrrrry interesting.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,


where moth and rust doth corrupt,

where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,


and where thieves do not break through nor steal:


For where your treasure is,


there will your heart be also.

Is it OK for Christians to practice Yoga

Many Christians have begun to practice Yoga. 

Indeed many Churches are now having Yoga classes.

But is this a good thing?

The link to which we are linking today will explain.

But interestingly, at least on the webpage when we logged on to read this link, we found an advertisement on the side for a Free 5-day Meditation course -- apparently using Omharmonics.

We don't know how that ad got there as we are sure that the website would not approve of such a course.  Perhaps it was put there because the company with which they have registered their site put it there.

Whatever the reason -- We clicked on a link that will hopefully make it go away but if it is still there when you log in -- ignore that advertisement.

and just read the article about Christians and Yoga.

So with that said

NASA's Largest Picture Ever Taken

 Pictured on the left is a NASA photo of our Milky Way.

As you know NASA takes lots of pictures and videos.

The video to which we are linking today is truly amazing.

It shows over 100 million stars and details of one Galaxy (The Andromeda Galaxy)

As you look at the video, you might recall the simple phrase in the Bible regarding the creation of the stars, an event that occurred during the 4th day of creation.

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night:

            He made the stars also.

And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 

 
                                           Genesis 1:14 - 19 KJV

Just a one liner -- "He made the stars also"

But as you look at today's link, you will doubtless consider that this simple phrase was an amazing under statement.

World's Oldest Computer

This really old computer is known as the Antikythera Mechanism.

It was found in a ship that had sunk in the first century BC in the Aegean Sea.

It has very complicated gears including what appear to be differential gears and is thought to have been used to calculate astronomical positions and etc.

Thus its use on a ship to determine where the ship was would make sense.

We had read about this previously in the book "The Puzzle of Ancient Man" by Donald E. Chittick.  The Antikythera Mechanism was described in Chapter One as an OOPA (out of place artifacts).

OOPA, according to Chittick, "are not an anomaly.  Instead they attest to a high and technologically advanced civilization in the ancient past."

A friend of DIT found today's link to an article in the Washington Post that tells about this amazing find.

South America shows the Flood Progression

Many people don't believe the Flood described in Genesis happened at all.

Others believe there was a Flood but that it was not world wide but only local.

Indeed the picture today from AIG shows what would have happened if a flood covered some mountains but wasn't worldwide.  Sigh

Still others, including those of us at DIT, believe the Bible was correct when it said there was a worldwide flood.

The article to which we are linking today is from ICR

and it provides additional evidence that the flood was indeed worldwide -- just as the Bible said.

Today is National Bird Watching (Birding) Day

 Well, as you know, cats watch birds all the time --

And they are not doing it for the same reason that Birders do!

Birders?  What is that? you ask. 

Well Birders are folks who have the hobby of observing as many birds as they can.


And, guess what, today is National Bird Watching day.

And even if you are not a birder, get outside and see what you can see.

You just might be amazed.

If you don't know how or what to do, we found a cool website with lots and lots of  information that will assist you in this fun activity.

Little Grand Canyon

Everyone has heard of the Grand Canyon in the USA --

And many of you have seen it in person.

Those of you who haven't seen it have surely seen pictures of it.

And as you viewed it, either in person or the photos, you have noticed and  likely wondered about the many many layers and why they are so flat and level -- like a stack of pancakes.

As you wondered you were repeatedly told that it took millions of years to form the stack of layers and that it usually it took about a million years to form each layer. 

You were also told that it took thousands of years or more for the Colorado River to be formed.



But, you thought -- if that is true, where is the erosion in the layers that should have occurred? 

And How can a layer sit for a million years with no erosion when I see erosion constantly occurring in my yard in just hours and days !

Good questions and good thinking.

Today's video will explain.

Selah


If you have read the Bible at all you have doubtless come across the Hebrew word 'SELAH' which is often seen in the Psalms as well as in other locations in the Old Testament.

For example, here's a text that uses SELAH:

Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
                   Psalm 3: 2

But the question is -- ?why is this Hebrew word inserted in its Hebrew form when all the rest of the Hebrew words are changed into English or some other language depending on what Bible you are reading?

In other words -- what does SELAH mean?

The Shot Heard around the World

Today the folks in the USA celebrate a very important event.

What is it? you ask.

Well This picture of of the Minute Man Statue is a hint.

It is located at the North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts -- the location where the Shot Heard around the World occurred.

So what was so important about that shot? you ask --

Well it is important because

On April 19, 1775, the Revolutionary War (that ultimately ended with the formation of the United States of America) began with the 'shot heard around the world'.

Wow!   Now that was an important shot !!!

Isaiah 53


Last week, culminating yesterday on Sunday, the world recalled and celebrated the death, burial, and resurrection of The Son of God, Jesus Christ.

There is a chapter in the Old Testament Book of Isaiah which predicted and prophesied that Jesus' sacrificial death would occur.

This prediction was given in approximately 712 BC. Wow!

So what did this Chapter predict? And do you see its fulfillment in the death of Jesus Christ.

Are you washed in the Blood?

This is Passover week

And we have been contemplating how the events of the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt and the annual Seder Supper observance of that event actually provide pictures /  types / and prophetic fulfillments of the Lord God Jesus Christ.

Again, if you did not watch the video to which we linked on Monday of this week, watch it now because it explains in detail what we are saying.

In the Exodus -- the blood of a slain lamb provided protection from the death of the firstborn of the houses of those who put the blood on the doorposts.

This pictured the protection provided by the blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, who provides protection from an eternity in hell if a person (you, me, anyone) accepts His substitute sacrifice for their sins.

This Hymn clearly explains what the Blood of the Lamb of God (Jesus) does.

HERE'S THE LINK to Are you washed in the blood.

Today is Good Friday


Today the world historically considers this to be the day that Christ died.

Some argue that Friday was not the day -- rather that He died on a Wednesday.

This Link proposes that Christ died on a Wednesday

This is a debate that has gone on for centuries and continues to this day.

We post it now just so you will know that the concept is "out there".

But whether Christ died on a Wednesday, or a Thursday, or a Friday is not the main point.

The main thing is that Christ Died and the reason for His death was to provide us a way of salvation and escape from eternity in Hell which would be the price we will have to pay for our sins if they remain unforgiven and not paid for.

But Christ's sinless life and blood sacrifice by his death on the cross provides the substitutionary atonement (payment) for individuals from their sins (if they accept this gift of Christ's death for theirs).

The night of the Passover Exodus in which the Jews put the blood of a lamb on the doorposts of their houses -- and thus avoided the death of the firstborn -- was a picture of the future death / blood sacrifice of The Lord God Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, to pay the penalty for the sins of mankind.

Anyone who believes in and accepts Jesus' gift of His life for theirs (yours, mine) will live eternally with Him in heaven and will escape the penalty of eternal punishment for their sins in hell.

That is what Good Friday (or Wednesday or Thursday) really means.

The question for you then is:

Have you accepted Jesus' gift of His life/death for yours?

For God so loved the world
That He gave His only beloved son
(Jesus, the Lamb of God)
That whosoever believes in Him
Shall not perish
but have everlasting life.

              John 3:16 KJV

God's Hidden Symbol


We have been thinking about Passover this week

and how Jesus was and is prefigured in the Seder Supper and events relating to the Exodus of the Jewish nation from Egypt during the Passover event.

As you well know, Jesus, as the Lamb of God, died on the cross to provide salvation for those who accept His gift of substitutionary atonement.

But did you know that Jesus is not only pictured in the Passover Exodus and the Seder supper (among other things), something really significant about Him and His death is also pictured in our bodies!

Yes.  No Kidding.

The Lord's Supper (The Last Supper)


...And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it,

and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying,

Drink ye all of it;

For this is my blood of the new testament,

which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine,

until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. ...

           Matthew 26:26-29 KJV

 

These were the words of the Lord God Jesus Christ at the time of the Last supper before He was crucified. If you watched the video yesterday about the Seder Supper of Passover, you understand the meaning of these words.  If you did not watch it yet -- I urge you to watch the video asap because it will clarify and clearly explain the somewhat confusing concepts of Jesus' body and blood (bread and wine)
