Eden’s Lord

Eden’s Lord…

Recently a news story came out that most people missed, but one that was filled with far-reaching ramifications. Scientists studying human DNA announced a stunning discovery: All humanity was descended from a single couple, a single man and woman. The discovery surprised the scientists as much as anyone.

“This conclusion is very surprising,” said one of the researchers, “and I fought against it as hard as I could.” But it would not come as a surprise to any believer in the Word of God.

The Bible begins with the account of creation in Genesis in which humanity begins from a single couple, a single man and woman, Adam and Eve. The new discovery even bears out the couple’s names. The man was called “Adam,” because it means “mankind” and he would be the father of mankind. The woman was called “Eve” or “Havah” because it means “life” as in the “mother of all living.”

The second conclusion is just as profound as the first. The scientists believe that the couple populated the earth “after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the entire human race.” In other words, think not just Adam and Eve, but Noah and his wife.

The Bible records also in Genesis that a cataclysmic event, the deluge, almost wiped out the entire human race, but then left humanity to further descend from one couple Noah and his wife (through his sons and their wives).

But there was one more stunning discovery. The scientists discovered that 90% of all animal species on the earth today are like man, also descended, each from one pair of animals. Further, they are all descended from one pair of animals that all began giving birth at the same time.

This would totally refute the theory of evolution. But beyond that, the biblical account says that Noah saved from the deluge pairs of animals of every creature. He brought them on the ark in pairs, male and female. The clear presumption is that after the flood was over, the male and female pairs of each animal gave birth. Thus, the newly discovered DNA evidence would match up the account in Genesis.

Thus, we have another amazing example of science upholding and bearing witness to the Bible – and something that could never be revealed until the development of technology able to study DNA.

For years scientists have spoken of evolution as a settled fact. This discovery has completely unsettled it. Don’t be moved, shaken, or unsettled by what the world presents as fact. In the end, it all fades like grass, “but the word of our God endures forever.”

Live in view of that fact. Take the Word of God at full strength, apply it to your life, believe in it, walk in it, and, by it, overcome. And may God greatly bless you as you do!

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.” Genesis 9: 12-16

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
