Generational Curses and Blessings.
“You have your mother’s eye.” “He looks just like his father.”
We have all seen how the physical characteristics of parents pass on to their children.
You may have a big nose from your dad or your mother’s smile. You might be short or tall, light-skinned or dark based
on the physical traits of your ancestors, but one thing is sure: much of who you are physically is influenced by heredity.
Heredity also has an influence on your talents, abilities, traits, and even how you think
and behave. We have all heard the phrase, “Like father, like son.” But did you know that it is just as
true in the spiritual realm as it is in the natural?
influences have the ability to bring blessings - or curses - to your life. An understanding of this reality brings the power
to change not only your life, but the lives of your family members as well.
is important to God, and it is clear that He does not think merely in terms of individuals but also in terms of generations.
Matthew 1:17 tells us: “So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David
until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen
When God looks at you, He also sees your family. He sees where you came from. He looks at
your ancestors, and He looks at your children and grandchildren.
making a covenant with Abraham, God never once said, “I'm going to bless you.” He always said, “I am going
to bless you and your descendants.” An example of this is in Genesis 22:17-18, where God said, “In
blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which
is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth
shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
Abraham obeyed God and was blessed, and his descendants were blessed, too, because blessings
tend to run along blood lines.
Curses also run along blood lines. In Exodus 20:5-6, God warns the children of Israel not to follow false gods, saying, “You
shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers
upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who
love Me and keep My commandments.”
The word “iniquity” means to be bent toward a certain sin, and we see that the
iniquity of the parents is carried on to the children to the third and fourth generations. So, a child will be bent like
his or her parents, grandparents and great grandparents.
will all have an inner inclination toward the same certain sinful habits. Lamentations 5:7 says, “Our
fathers sinned and are no more, but we bear their iniquities.” In other words, even though they may be dead
and in the grave, their iniquity is sticking with you.
Deuteronomy 28:15-68 contains fifty-three verses listing generational curses. Here are just a few of
the symptoms of curses listed there:
~ Hereditary disease
~ Child abuse
~ Sexual abuse
~ Domestic violence
~ Drug addiction
~ Panic attacks
~ Mental illness
~ Destructive attitudes
Each of these can be, but are
not always, the result of a generational curse, and most have their root in idolatry and iniquity.
Many people, if not most, can identify some of these symptoms that have passed on from generation
to generation. How about you? When you look at your family tree, do you see a pattern of any of these things?
Do you struggle with a particular sin and see a history of that sin in past generations?
Maybe you've been told that the depression or fear you deal with runs in the family or perhaps you struggle with marital
infidelity and can identify a pattern of affairs and divorce going back to a parent and grandparent. These could be symptoms
of a generational curse.
The good news is that generational curses
can be stopped today!
Hebrews 9:22 tells
us, “According to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there
is no remission.” Here are two basic principles you need to know:
1) A generational curse comes through the blood line.
2) A generational curse can only be cancelled
It Is all about the blood of Jesus Christ. In Romans 3:23-25
(NIV), we read, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by
His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith
in His blood. He did this to demonstrate His justice, because in His forbearance He had left the sins committed beforehand
To define “justified” in simple terms, you could say, “I’ve been made just as if
I’d never done it.” This is possible only because God presented Jesus as a sacrifice of atonement, or as Young’s
Literal Translation puts it, God set Him forth as a “mercy seat.”
If you remember, the mercy seat on the ark of the covenant was where, once a year on the Day of Atonement,
the priest would sprinkle the blood of animals. The blood was a barrier between the curse of the law and the people of the
The ninth chapter of Hebrews tells us that Jesus placed
His blood on the mercy seat in heaven, not once a year, but one time for all of eternity to obtain eternal salvation for
all who put their faith and trust in Him. Today, Jesus is to us a mercy seat.
It is extremely important to note that we must appropriate Jesus’ sacrifice through
faith. Yes, His death on the cross paid the penalty and broke the power of sin for everyone from Adam to the last person
standing at the end of the age. However, salvation is not effective in our lives until we personally accept Jesus’
sacrifice by faith and appropriate it for ourselves.
same is true of deliverance from generational iniquities and curses. These are the “sins committed beforehand” mentioned
in Romans 3:25, and just as salvation must be appropriated through faith, so must deliverance from generational iniquities
and curses. Until you personally appropriate Jesus’ sacrifice through faith, it is not effective in your life, and
the curse can remain.
Breaking the Curse
you are living under a generational curse, it will be cancelled when you, through faith, appropriate the blood of Jesus for
You can pray and make this
Thank you, God, that generational curses are broken through
faith in the blood of Jesus. I put my faith in the blood. I believe Jesus is my mercy seat and that His blood cancels the
curse and breaks generational iniquities. I believe, by the blood of Jesus, that the generational curse from the law is cancelled
and broken off my family now, in Jesus’ name. Thank you that sins, bondages and iniquities are cancelled and the curse
is stopped by the blood of Jesus. Thank you, God, that the blood of Jesus on the mercy seat is a barrier and that a curse
cannot pass the blood. Amen.
Life and Blessing
We saw previously in Exodus 20:5-6 how God visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the children
to the third and fourth of generations, but did you notice the rest of that verse? It says that the blessing goes, not only
three or four generations, but up to a thousand generations - and the blessing is much stronger than the curse!
How do we pass this blessing on to future generations? By loving God and keeping His commands
– and it starts by choosing life and blessing.
in Deuteronomy 30:15,19 says, “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil…I
call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore
choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”
Jupiter is in the royal sign Leo. Bringing many blessings from God.
to you with a blessing from God.
Good news!!! Jupiter, the benevolent planet
of luck, expansion, synchronicity, optimism, and opportunities, is moving into the romantic, charismatic, charming, fun,
and golden kingdom of Leo this morning from July 16th 2014 till August 11th 2015. When Leos have good time, we all have a great time. Leo is the child of the zodiac, and many parents assert
that the best family vacations are those when the kids are having fun. So for the next year, with the help of the good Jupiter,
Leo, a generous sign, will share their happiness and fun with us all…Where
is Leo located in your chart? Below is the influence of Jupiter in one of your houses based on the time you were born. Good
Fortune in the house your Jupiter is in.
- The 1st House rules the body, physical appearance, leadership abilities,
mannerisms, attitudes, and resistance to disease. Some astrologers describe it as your mask or how people see you. Persona in
Greek means “mask,” signifying your personality, or ego, if you want. It is your flagship, your rising sign/ascendant.
- The 2nd House governs talents, money, finance, values, and self-worth.
It reveals how you deal with money, assets, personal belongings, and budgets. Your self-worth will determine how much you
believe in your talents and how well you can translate these talents into money.
3rd House is the house of the mind, siblings, neighbors, and relatives (excluding your parents). It
also rules lower education, communication, reading preferences, and the practical logical mind. This house also influences
transportation, vehicles, cars, and airplanes, and one day soon, I hope, spaceships.
- The 4th House represents the home and family, the place where you feel secure. It describes
the home and family of your childhood as well as the family you build for yourself as an adult. It also relays information
about your relationship with your mother, maternal figures, and old age.
5th House rules creativity, love, romance, fun, sports, speculations, entertainment, theater, and children.
It’s the house of happiness. This house also contains your inner child. You can connect (and help to heal) that inner
child by working with the energies of the sign that governs your fifth house.
6th House is the house of physical health, disease, work, service, purification, hygiene, diets, and
order. It also rules domestic animals and pets. This house reveals how you deal with employees and how well you delegate
- The 7th House governs beauty, marriage,
partnerships, contracts, law, and justice. It also rules our known enemies as well as lawsuits. This house contains the
key to your harmony and peace.
- The 8th House is
the house of death, sexuality, joint financial affairs, intimacy, the occult, other people’s money, and inheritance.
It rules taxes, insurance, your partner’s earnings, alimony, as well as your business partner’s finances. This
house contains your secret chambers, the dungeons in which you hide the things you are afraid of.
- The 9th House rules morality, traveling, prophecy, higher education, publishing,
universities, churches, temples, philosophy, and religion. It is also the house of in-laws. This house describes how you
experience truth and how you perceive the meaning of life.
- The 10th House governs
achievements, professional standing, success, status in the community, and career. It is the house of authority and society.
It describes the mountain you need to climb in this lifetime, providing clues to your ambition and your capacity to bring
the potential into the actual. In the Ancient Greek tradition it’s is called Kleos—our fame, glory, what we
will be remembered for.
- The 11th House is the house
of the future, freelance income, friendships, groups, cooperation, technology, hope, and philanthropy. This house reveals
how well you function within group settings as well as the nature of your relationship to humanity.
- The 12th House rules karma, compassion, confinement, hospitals, mysticism,
healing, imagination, faith, and past lifetimes. It is also associated with pain, personal limitations, and your hidden
enemies. It shows what talents you possess from past lifetimes that are hard to access.
you all a great romantic summer (or winter if you are below the equator) and much promised love as Jupiter the Great, enters
Leo, the sign of happiness in
Good Fortune, Peace and Love.
Supermoons: How Can They Affect You? You’ve likely heard about the incredible power of a New Moon or a Full Moon in astrology. Moon phases
have great influence on our behavior and emotions as well as natural elements like ocean tides. While you may think that
all New and Full Moons are alike, in actuality they are quite different depending on their proximity to the Earth. When
the Moon is closer to the Earth than usual, it results in a Supermoon.
If you think
about the relationship among the Earth, Moon and Sun, it is one of great movement and activity. The Moon orbits the Earth,
the Earth orbits the Sun and we are all on an amazing galactic journey through space.
the Moon orbits the Earth elliptically, at certain times it will pass closer to us than others. This is known as perigee
and the Moon will often appear up to one-sixteenth larger when full. This is only one part of the Supermoon set up. The
other portion involved the direct alignment of the Earth, Moon and Sun, called syzygy. When both conditions are met—voila!
—You have a Supermoon.
The term Supermoon was originally coined by astrologer Richard
Nolle back in 1979 for an article published in Horoscope magazine. Thanks to him we have a much easier term to use for what
astronomers call perigee-syzygy. And while you may think these occurrences are rare, Supermoons happen about four to six
times a year, just like eclipses.
Supermoons and Natural Phenomena
you are probably aware, the Moon has a great deal of power over the Earth, particularly when it comes to ocean tides. When
we experience a Supermoon, the tidal force is often greater—up to 18 percent. Although that sounds extreme, scientists
tell us that much depends on the amplitude of tides and their variation around the world. Even so, a Supermoon will result
in a noticeably stronger tidal wave force.
It has also been observed that other forces of nature
may be impacted by the gravitational pull of a Supermoon. Occasionally events like volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and severe
weather have happened within a week or so of a Supermoon. Among the most notable examples were the 2011 earthquake in Christchurch,
New Zealand and New Orleans’s Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Supermoons and You
the potential impact of natural disasters, how else can a Supermoon affect you? Astrologically speaking a Supermoon is an
intensified New Moon or Full Moon. With a New Moon you often focus on personal beginnings, however when a Supermoon is involved
those new beginnings will take on an even greater momentous tone. The same applies to a Full Moon. Crescendos and culminations
of events will seem even more dramatic and climactic.
The Moon is also associated with
emotions and our feminine sides. When a Supermoon is involved expect to be even more emotional than usual. Tears and laughter
will come more easily, moods will suffer extreme swings and there will be no shortage of drama—both good and bad.
Moon’s effects will also cast its light on women in particular. Mothers, daughter, sisters and friends may be noticeably
affected by the intensified energies. Husbands, fathers and boyfriends may be dismayed or exasperated by the behavior of
females during these transits.
Emotional storms will come and go. These are opportunities
for people to learn how to deal with feelings while developing patience and understanding. It is also a chance to grow closer.
Not all emotions will be negative and floods of love and happiness can wash over us too. Supermoons can have all of us getting
in touch with our feminine sides.
The next Supermoons will be on August 10, and September
God's Sacred Language.
The universe is never silent concerning the nature of our God. All creation speaks of God's greatness,
love,and mercy. When studied carefully. God left us a powerful testimony of his existence, long before he inspired men to
write his truth in the Bible, but God's message was lost when sin entered the world and God's truth became corrupted by man,
this is why God gives us a warning in Revelation 22 v 18-21.
All creation speaks of God to those who know God's sacred language. The most intriguing
of these testimonies in creation shows God's constant, unchanging nature can be found on earth.
Every mountain, tree,
plant, animal and human being attests to God's greatness- but only when viewed spiritually with God's allegorical language.
God has never been silent. It all started when God fashioned all the stars, moons, and planets in our universe. God first
"wrote" this testimony into his creation using his sacred language where men cannot pervert.
When is the next total solar eclipse in the U.S.?
The next total solar eclipse visible in the mainland United States will come on August 21, 2017.
The next total eclipse after that for U.S. observers will be on April 8, 2024.
During a total
solar eclipse – whenever thenew moon swings directly in front of the sun and completely covers it – the sky turns suddenly from
day into night, and stars and planets pop into view. What’s more, a total solar eclipse shows you the sun’s
normally invisible corona. It’s a breathtaking sight!
In addition to total eclipses, there are other sorts of eclipses as well,
and some of them might be visible from your location. In 2013, the next eclipse will be a hybrid solar eclipse on November
3, 2013. Read more about the November 3, 2013 hybrid solar eclipse here. A hybrid eclipse occurs when the magnitude of an
eclipse changes during the event from less to greater than one, so the eclipse appears to be total at some locations on Earth
and annular at other locations.
Partial solar eclipse for North America on October 23, 2014
The moon passes more or less between the Earth and
sun every month. This is the new moon phase. More often than not, no eclipse happens at new moon, because the new moon usually sweeps
to the north or to the south of the sun. There are several lunar and solar eclipses each year, however.
An eclipse of the Sun (or solar eclipse) can only occur
at New Moon when the Moon passes between Earth and Sun. If the Moon's shadow falls upon Earth's surface, we see some portion
of the Sun's disk covered or 'eclipsed' by the Moon. Since New Moon occurs every 29 1/2 days, you might
think that we should have a solar eclipse about once a month. Unfortunately, this doesn't happen because the Moon's orbit
around Earth is tilted 5 degrees to Earth's orbit around the Sun. As a result, the Moon's shadow usually misses Earth as
it passes above or below our planet at New Moon. At lease twice each year, the geometry lines up just right so that an eclipse
of the Sun is seen from some part of Earth.
Moon's shadow has three parts two of which are nested inside the third. The faint outer shadow is the penumbra.
Partial eclipses are visible inside the penumbral shadow. The dark inner shadow is the umbra. Total eclipses
are seen in the umbral shadow. The umbra is cone-shaped and narrows to a point. Extending beyond the umbra is the antumbra.
There are four types of solar eclipses:
- Partial - Moon's
penumbral shadow traverses Earth (umbral and antumbral shadows completely miss Earth)
- Annular - Moon's antumbral
shadow traverses Earth (Moon is too far from Earth to completely cover the Sun)
- Total - Moon's umbral shadow
traverses Earth (Moon is close enough to Earth to completely cover the Sun)
- Hybrid - Moon's umbral and antumbral
shadows traverse Earth (eclipse appears annular and total along different sections of its path). Hybrid eclipses are also
known as annular-total eclipses.
The number of solar eclipses in a single year can range from 2 to 5. Nearly 3/4 of the time there are 2 eclipses
in a year. On the other hand, it is quite rare to have 5 solar eclipse in a single year. The last time it happened was in
1935 and the next time is 2206.
“God wants us to look at the biblical
calendar,” “The reason we need to be watching is [because] He will signal His appearance. But we have to
know what to be watching as well. So we need to be watching the biblical holidays.” and not man's calendar who has
changed the times to suite his own purpose.
Get Ready for The last Supermoon of this year.
2014 lights up the dark nights across the globe! on September 9, 2014.
DNA: The Tiny Code That's Toppling Evolution
It was in 1953 that James Watson and
Francis Crick achieved what appeared impossible—discovering the genetic structure deep inside the nucleus of our cells.
We call this genetic material DNA, an abbreviation for deoxyribonucleic acid.
The discovery of
the double-helix structure of the DNA molecule opened the floodgates for scientists to examine the code embedded within
it. Now, more than half a century after the initial discovery, the DNA code has been deciphered—although many of its
elements are still not well understood.
What has been found has profound implications regarding
Darwinian evolution, the theory taught in schools all over the world that all living beings have evolved by natural processes
through mutation and natural selection.
Amazing revelations about DNA
scientists began to decode the human DNA molecule, they found something quite unexpected—an exquisite 'language' composed
of some 3 billion genetic letters. "One of the most extraordinary discoveries of the twentieth century,"
says Dr. Stephen Meyer, director of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute in Seattle, Wash., "was
that DNA actually stores information—the detailed instructions for assembling proteins—in the form of a four-character
digital code" (quoted by Lee Strobel, The Case for a Creator, 2004, p. 224).
is hard to fathom, but the amount of information in human DNA is roughly equivalent to 12 sets of The Encyclopaedia
Britannica— an incredible 384 volumes" worth of detailed information that would fill
48 feet of library shelves!
Yet in their actual size—which is only two millionths of a
millimeter thick—a teaspoon of DNA, according to molecular biologist Michael Denton, could contain all the
information needed to build the proteins for all the species of organisms that have ever lived on the
earth, and "there would still be enough room left for all the information in every book ever written" ( Evolution:
A Theory in Crisis , 1996, p. 334).
Who or what could miniaturize such information and place
this enormous number of 'letters' in their proper sequence as a genetic instruction manual? Could evolution have gradually
come up with a system like this?
DNA contains a genetic language
consider some of the characteristics of this genetic 'language.' For it to be rightly called a language, it must contain
the following elements: an alphabet or coding system, correct spelling, grammar (a proper arrangement of the words), meaning
(semantics) and an intended purpose.
Scientists have found the genetic code has all of these
key elements. "The coding regions of DNA," explains Dr. Stephen Meyer, "have exactly the
same relevant properties as a computer code or language" (quoted by Strobel, p. 237, emphasis in original).
only other codes found to be true languages are all of human origin. Although we do find that dogs bark when they perceive
danger, bees dance to point other bees to a source and whales emit sounds, to name a few examples of other species"
communication, none of these have the composition of a language. They are only considered low-level communication signals.
only types of communication considered high-level are human languages, artificial languages such as computer and Morse codes
and the genetic code. No other communication system has been found to contain the basic characteristics of a language.
Gates, founder of Microsoft, commented that "DNA is like a software program, only much more complex than anything we've
Can you imagine something more intricate than the most complex program running
on a supercomputer being devised by accident through evolution—no matter how much time, how many
mutations and how much natural selection are taken into account?
DNA language not the same as
Recent studies in information theory have come up with some astounding conclusions—namely,
that information cannot be considered in the same category as matter and energy. It's true that matter or energy can carry information,
but they are not the same as information itself.
For instance, a book such as Homer's Iliad contains
information, but is the physical book itself information? No, the materials of the book—the paper, ink and glue contain
the contents, but they are only a means of transporting it.
If the information
in the book was spoken aloud, written in chalk or electronically reproduced in a computer, the information does not suffer
qualitatively from the means of transporting it. "In fact the content of the message," says professor Phillip
Johnson, "is independent of the physical makeup of the medium" ( Defeating Darwinism by Opening Minds ,
1997, p. 71).
The same principle is found in the genetic code. The DNA molecule carries the
genetic language, but the language itself is independent of its carrier. The same genetic information
can be written in a book, stored in a compact disk or sent over the Internet, and yet the quality or content of the message
has not changed by changing the means of conveying it.
As George Williams puts it: "The
gene is a package of information, not an object. The pattern of base pairs in a DNA molecule specifies the gene. But the
DNA molecule is the medium, it's not the message" (quoted by Johnson, p. 70).
from an intelligent source
In addition, this type of high-level information has been found to originate
only from an intelligent source.
As Lee Strobel explains: "The data at the core of life is not
disorganized, it's not simply orderly like salt crystals, but it's complex and specific information that can accomplish a
bewildering task—the building of biological machines that far outstrip human technological capabilities" (p.
For instance, the precision of this genetic language is such that the average mistake that is
not caught turns out to be one error per 10 billion letters. If a mistake occurs in one of the most significant
parts of the code, which is in the genes, it can cause a disease such as sickle-cell anemia. Yet even the best and most
intelligent typist in the world couldn't come close to making only one mistake per 10 billion letters—far from it.
to believe that the genetic code gradually evolved in Darwinian style would break all the known rules of how matter, energy
and the laws of nature work. In fact, there has not been found in nature any example of one information system inside the
cell gradually evolving into another functional information program.
Michael Behe, a biochemist
and professor at Pennsylvania's Lehigh University, explains that genetic information is primarily an instruction manual
and gives some examples.
He writes: "Consider a step-by-step list of [genetic] instructions.
A mutation is a change in one of the lines of instructions. So instead of saying, "Take a 1/4-inch
nut," a mutation might say, "Take a 3/8-inch nut." Or instead of "Place the round peg in the round hole,"
we might get "Place the round peg in the square hole" . . . What a mutation cannot do is change
all the instructions in one step—say, [providing instructions] to build a fax machine instead of a radio" ( Darwin's
Black Box , 1996, p. 41).
We therefore have in the genetic code an immensely complex instruction
manual that has been majestically designed by a more intelligent source than human beings.
Even one of
the discoverers of the genetic code, the agnostic and recently deceased Francis Crick, after decades of work on deciphering
it, admitted that "an honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense,the
origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have had to
have been satisfied to get it going" ( Life Itself , 1981, p. 88, emphasis added).
Evolution fails to provide answers
It is good to remember that, in spite of all the efforts
of all the scientific laboratories around the world working over many decades, they have not been able to produce so much
as a single human hair. How much more difficult is it to produce an entire body consisting of some 100 trillion cells!
to now, Darwinian evolutionists could try to counter their detractors with some possible explanations for the complexity
of life. But now they have to face the information dilemma: How can meaningful, precise information be created by
accident —by mutation and natural selection? None of these contain the mechanism of intelligence, a
requirement for creating complex information such as that found in the genetic code.
is still taught in most schools as though it were fact. But it is increasingly being found wanting by a growing number of
scientists. "As recently as twenty-five years ago," says former atheist Patrick Glynn, "a reasonable person
weighing the purely scientific evidence on the issue would likely have come down on the side of skepticism [regarding a
Creator]. That is no longer the case." He adds: "Today the concrete data point strongly in the direction of the
God hypothesis. It is the simplest and most obvious solution . . ." ( God: The Evidence , 1997,
pp. 54-55, 53).
Quality of genetic information the same
us that through chance mutations and natural selection, living things evolve. Yet to evolve means to gradually change certain
aspects of some living thing until it becomes another type of creature, and this can only be done by changing the genetic
So what do we find about the genetic code? The same basic quality of information exists
in a humble bacteria or a plant as in a person. A bacterium has a shorter genetic code, but qualitatively it gives instructions
as precisely and exquisitely as that of a human being. We find the same prerequisites of a language—alphabet, grammar
and semantics—in simple bacteria and algae as in man.
Each cell with genetic information, from
bacteria to man, according to molecular biologist Michael Denton, consists of "artificial languages and their decoding
systems, memory banks for information storage and retrieval, elegant control systems regulating the automated assembly of
parts and components, error fail-safe and proof-reading devices utilized for quality control, assembly processes involving
the principle of prefabrication and modular construction . . . [and a] capacity not equalled in any of our most advanced
machines, for it would be capable of replicating its entire structure within a matter of a few hours" (Denton, p. 329).
how could the genetic information of bacteria gradually evolve into information for another type of being, when only one
or a few minor mistakes in the millions of letters in that bacterium's DNA can kill it?
are uncharacteristically silent on the subject. They don't even have a working hypothesis about it. Lee Strobel writes:
"The six feet of DNA coiled inside every one of our body's one hundred trillion cells contains a four-letter chemical
alphabet that spells out precise assembly instructions for all the proteins from which our bodies are made . . . No hypothesis
has come close to explaining how information got into biological matter by naturalistic means" (Strobel, p.
Werner Gitt, professor of information systems, puts it succinctly: "The basic flaw of all
evolutionary views is the origin of the information in living beings. It has never been shown that a coding system and semantic
information could originate by itself [through matter] . . . The information theorems predict that this will never be possible.
A purely material origin of life is thus [ruled out]" (Gitt, p. 124).
all the evidence we have covered for the intelligent design of DNA information, there is still one amazing fact remaining—the
ideal number of genetic letters in the DNA code for storage and translation.
Moreover, the copying
mechanism of DNA, to meet maximum effectiveness, requires the number of letters in each word to be an even number. Of all
possible mathematical combinations, the ideal number for storage and transcription has been calculated to be four letters.
is exactly what has been found in the genes of every living thing on earth—a four-letter digital code. As Werner Gitt
states: "The coding system used for living beings is optimal from an engineering standpoint. This fact strengthens the
argument that it was a case of purposeful design rather that a [lucky] chance" (Gitt, p. 95).
Back in Darwin's day, when his book On the Origin of Species was published
in 1859, life appeared much simpler. Viewed through the primitive microscopes of the day, the cell appeared to be but a
simple blob of jelly or uncomplicated protoplasm. Now, almost 150 years later, that view has changed dramatically as science
has discovered a virtual universe inside the cell.
"It was once expected," writes Professor
Behe, "that the basis of life would be exceedingly simple. That expectation has been smashed. Vision, motion, and other
biological functions have proven to be no less sophisticated than television cameras and automobiles. Science has made enormous
progress in understanding how the chemistry of life works, but the elegance and complexity of biological systems at the molecular
level have paralyzed science's attempt to explain their origins" (Behe, p. x).
Dr. Meyer considers
the recent discoveries about DNA as the Achilles" heel of evolutionary theory. He observes: "Evolutionists are
still trying to apply Darwin's nineteenth-century thinking to a twenty-first century reality, and it's not working ... I
think the information revolution taking place in biology is sounding the death knell for Darwinism and chemical evolutionary
theories" (quoted by Strobel, p. 243).
Dr. Meyer's conclusion? "I believe that the testimony
of science supports theism. While there will always be points of tension or unresolved conflict, the major
developments in science in the past five decades have been running in a strongly theistic direction" (ibid., p. 77).
Kenyon, a biology professor who repudiated his earlier book on Darwinian evolution—mostly due to the discoveries of
the information found in DNA—states: "This new realm of molecular genetics (is) where we see the most compelling
evidence of design on the Earth" (ibid., p. 221).
Just recently, one of the world's most
famous atheists, Professor Antony Flew, admitted he couldn't explain how DNA was created and developed through evolution.
He now accepts the need for an intelligent source to have been involved in the making of the DNA code.
I think the DNA material has done is show that intelligence must have been involved in getting these extraordinary diverse
elements together," he said (quoted by Richard Ostling, "Leading Atheist Now Believes in God," Associated
Press report, Dec. 9, 2004).
"Fearfully and wonderfully made"
written thousands of years ago, King David's words about our marvelous human bodies still ring true. He wrote: "For
You formed my inward parts, You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made . . . My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought. . ."(Psalm:139:13-15,
Where does all this leave evolution? Michael Denton, an agnostic scientist, concludes:
"Ultimately the Darwinian theory of evolution is no more nor less than the great cosmogenic myth of the twentieth century"
(Denton, p. 358).
All of this has enormous implications for our society and culture. Professor Johnson
makes this clear when he states: "Every history of the twentieth century lists three thinkers as preeminent in influence:
Darwin, Marx and Freud. All three were regarded as 'scientific' (and hence far more reliable than anything 'religious') in
"Yet Marx and Freud have fallen, and even their dwindling bands of followers no
longer claim that their insights were based on any methodology remotely comparable to that of experimental science. I am
convinced that Darwin is next on the block. His fall will be by far the mightiest of the three" (Johnson, p. 113).
has had its run for almost 150 years in the schools and universities and in the press. But now, with the discovery of what
the DNA code is all about, the complexity of the cell, and the fact that information is something vastly different from matter
and energy, evolution can no longer dodge the ultimate outcome. The evidence certainly points to a resounding checkmate
for evolution! GN
The Zodiac and Its Signs
The Zodiac and Its Signs
early star gazers, after dividing the zodiac into its houses, appointed the three brightest stars in each constellation to
be the joint rulers of that house. Then they divided the house into three sections of ten degrees each, which they called
decans. These, in turn, were divided in half, resulting in the breaking up of the zodiac into seventy-two duodecans of five
degrees each. Over each of these duodecans the Hebrews placed a celestial intelligence, or angel, and from this system, has
resulted the Qabbalistic arrangement of the seventy-two sacred names, which correspond to the seventy-two flowers, knops,
and almonds upon the seven-branched Candlestick of the Tabernacle, and the seventy-two men who were chosen from the Twelve
Tribes to represent Israel.
