THE LOST WORLD

The Silent Cries of those Beneath Our Feet.

When you stop to think about it everyone currently on this planet came from one of the lines of Noah’s sons. Our ethnic lines can be traced back to just 3 people Ham, Shem or Japheth; but not any further back than that. There truly is a brotherhood of man; we all come from one family.

Every fossil we find, every piece of bone, every tooth coming from the compressed layer of sediment is made up of the Lost World. Every ancient myth, every legend that we have today began from the time of Noah. The secular world claims Herodotus was the Father of History. Yet Herodotus lived during the time of the prophet Isaiah.

The well-known books of the Odyssey and the Iliad are made up of a mixture of legends, myths and history written by Homer. Yet Homer was alive during the time of the prophet Samuel.

Every spade put into the dirt of the Middle East has come out verifying Gods Word as accurate history. So while mankind’s history goes back to Herodotus, Gods History continues to go back into time 1,200 more years to Noah.

If you are a student of ancient history you can find bits and pieces of the truth recorded by ancient nations of the world.

• 240 of the nations of the earth record a worldwide flood
• The Chinese pictograph for flood is a shape of a boat with 8 sticks in it
• 90% of those 240 nations mention 8 people in the boat
• 85% of those 240 nations say the boat contained all animals

Coincidence……..I don’t think so.

Science has confirmed there is no fossil left on earth that is carbon dated older than 4,000 to 6,000 years old. They also agree that the fossils and the sediment layer were formed at one time by one cataclysmic event…not over millions or billions of years.

Yet the God who waits to be wanted, who continually whispers our names to turn to HIM has left us markers of this Lost World of people, who mocked HIM, to speak to us today. These grave markers are REDWOOD TREES, the so called eternal trees that have been dated back 3,000 years.

That’s 1,000 years before the first coming of Christ.

These trees are rooted deep within the Sediment Layer of the Lost World. They stand as silent grave markers to the people of the Lost World. They are a constant reminder of Gods continued Mercy to those who would look up to Him for safety and protection. They also stand before us as a testament of a past world that forgot the God who made them. These trees, if they could talk, would stand before us as Noah did before the people of the Lost World, and preach about another world wide cataclysm yet too come.

The trees everywhere must be very sad. You see they have heard throughout their generations about the great flood. God says in His word that the creation groans while waiting for its coming Redeemer Jesus. Jesus, the Son of God who brings healing in His hands for all of His Creation.

The trees look forward to the time when their leaves will clap for Joy at the sight of the return of Jesus to the earth…for then they will groan no more. The trees have always tried to talk to us, but cannot. Even if they could we would not listen for we do not have ears that hear.

Next time you find yourself standing next to a tree in the sunshine on a cloudless day and you feel the gentle breeze caressing your body…look up. Open the eyes of your heart. See the limbs gently waving back and forth. Open the ears of your soul and listen to the sound of the rustling of the leaves in the wind.

Then be silent and stand in awe as you look up towards Heaven. The trees are doing what God has called all of creation to do since the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden.

For what you are seeing with the eyes of your heart and hearing with the ears of your soul are the trees lifting up their Holy Hands in Worship to their Creator… and praying for your Salvation.

The Silent Cries of those Beneath Our Feet

It’s quiet and still. The sky is filled with stars and the sun has gone to sleep. The moon is full and bright in the sky as it continues to fulfill its purpose since time began. Its calling is to reflect the light of the Sun…so we would have light in the darkness.

As I stand outside my cabin, looking out at the Ocean all I can hear is the quiet lapping of water alongside the ship. The light reflects a path along the water inviting me to step out onto the water and follow its path to the moon.

It’s tempting because the water looks like slate. My eyes and heart say step out…it looks solid. But my mind knows better. It’s an alluring illusion, inviting me to follow the lights reflection along the path that will lead me to my death.

Every path begins with a choice, I could step out onto the water, but that would be the wrong choice and I would be no more. Just as the light of the moon is an illusion, so too is the Angel of Light…Lucifer. Lucifer is the one whom the Bible calls the God of this present world.

He comes to each of us disguised as an angel of light but with a message of darkness. Darkness so thick, so addicting, so enveloping you can actually taste it as you drink deeply within the womb of sin.

We can easily live our lives within his womb connected to his umbilical cord receiving our daily sustenance. We live that life devoid of truth and compassion focused only on ourselves; never able to forgive or to be forgiven.

Being out here at night looking out over the vast body of water brings to mind the historical account we have recorded by God in the Bible of the Lost World. The Lost World followed the reflection of Lucifer’s light rather than the true light of God. The heavens had never offered rain in that world; instead there were mists that watered the vegetation on the face of the Earth. But the eyes of the people would soon shed tears like rain when God opened the Heavens and broke open the earth to allow water, miles deep, to encase the entire planet….

Souls Full of Shadows

“There’s a place for us, some where a place for us. Take my hand and I’ll take you there, take my hand and we’re almost there. Somewhere, Somehow, we’ll find a new way of living, we’ll find a way of forgiving…Somewhere.”

These lyrics from the movie Westside Story still haunt me because they represent the heart cry of our human family at the beginning of civilization. Adam and Eve lived with God not by faith but by sight in the Garden, until they fell. Then for the first time in their lives they stood with their children outside the Garden looking in. The entrance was now blocked forever by a Holy Angel with a flaming sword.

Adam and Eve no longer had the privilege of this relationship by sight; walking and talking with their Creator. Now God would become the God who asks each of us to remember Him by Faith alone, because as sin and time progressed we would no longer be able to live by sight. Only the righteous can live by sight and humanity no longer was righteous.

The song lyrics above encapsulate the cry of mankind’s heart. The memory of a place somewhere and a need for forgiveness to go back home was still alive. Because in the beginning of their dispersion they were still human and the vestiges of the knowledge of being made in the Image of God was alive in their minds.

But with the passing of time sin began to run its inevitable course and humanity changed; until every thought they had was evil among them all. And they soon forgot the God who had created them. God had said, “I will not dwell with mankind forever”. The day had now become night. They no longer had light and their minds were focused only on themselves and their own desires. Their Souls became filled with shadows.

They had become followers of the god of this world, a fallen Angel of Light named Lucifer. The darkness soon became so addictive and thick that humanity could taste it and drink it as they now lived within the womb of Sin. They waited, nourished by the umbilical chord of mankind’s deceiver. They waited to be born into their Eternal 2nd death.

Humans living in the Lost World now lost the potential for love, kindness, righteousness and the goal of Holiness. Their reflections of Gods character were now gone forever.
