Declare!

As long as the motives are pure, hard questions are good. When a child asks ‘why’ mama robin feeds her little one worms, this is a legitimate query. When the same child asks ‘why’ the sun and moon move overhead and appear identical in size, these are most certainly  excellent questions, (which answers by the way embarrass false science and godlessness)

So the adult infidel ‘asks’ questions of the Creator, NOT out of pure motives to truly understand, but to reveal the innate disdain for the Creator, period. IF God created man and woman for instance, WHY did God allow Cain to kill his brother, or WHY did God create at all, if He knew the family tree would grow some bad apples?

Of course the narrative is designed to allow self-made-smart people and all fools to be king of the playground, and to ASK questions which supposedly display their superior position of artificial intelligence, that is, a world without a Creator. Yes, artificial is the correct word for all things atheistic when dealing with God.

I stand by this with all the proof of heaven and earth.

Artificial pretends to be something it is not. A gold painted gutter is hardly the real McCoy. A man would starve to death if he tried to survive eating apples from a Monet painting. Godlessness is 100% artificial intelligence which offers zero calories. It is the great pretender. It operates on fumes and borrowed power. Godlessness asks a million poisoned questions, and ignores rock solid answers already given.  Have any examples? Sure, tkx for asking.

But do allow me to say right out of the gate: God’s questions are the finest, so I shall simply borrow from He who holds the keys to every letter, number, design, trademark, and copyrights. God owns all Intelligence, so it would make sense if His questions put us in our rightful place.

Aside from God’s first recorded question to man: ‘Adam, where are you?’ God’s power and wisdom is on display for the sole purpose of Him allowing us to remember who He is, and who we are. The Creator, and the created. His questions, and our answers, are age old, and reveal the identical concerns that all humans have, including doubts, fear, wonder, wander, life, death, nature, astronomy, all science, true religion, false religion, and everything under the sun.

But first I suggest you immediately read Job 38 from the excellent language of the KJV for the most powerful effect.  So God asks:

‘Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?’ He then adds:  ‘Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.’

Uh oh. Can you see the proverbial shaking in the boots? Men do not have this posture regarding God today. We think our questions to God trap Him, but we miss the DEMANDING by God which instantly shuts our mouths. But no, we do not pay attention, neither do we care. God then thunders this:

‘Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?’

Forget your ungodly and borrowed science guesswork, and DECLARE, IF thou hast understanding…… Stop right there buster, and consider the ramifications of this statement by the Creator.  You DO NOT have understanding. You are clueless as to how the Creator made the measurements down to the inch, and made the foundations on which the earth is hung.

All quality buildings have foundations, and oh, that corner stone thing. Where were you, you whippersnapper when creation took its orders?  Where were you and your science friends when these jeweled stars took their place in the setting of God’s creation?

Where were you when the Seas were issued their stopping places at the shores, when they did not overflow their banks? Hmmmm? Answer if you can? The fact is, you can’t.

But if you continue through Job, you will see each question by the Creator adds a death-blow to man’s pride. There is no literature on earth, and never will be which presents God’s overall majesty and power as we find here in Job. ‘Have you entered into the treasures of the snow?’  I DEMAND OF YOU, ANSWER IF YOU CAN.  And this:

Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,   That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

God anticipates the complete arrogance of man, and asks questions to all for all times, and if man would only be humbled at His glory.  Do you think you have answers because you have experience as a human? Do you think your old age and your reading of the dry works of infidels help you ‘understand?’

Have you perceived the breadth of the earth? No, you have not. You do not know. Your imagination stops at the ice walls. Do you know the treasure houses of snow and hail? Of course you don’t, as you think this is fictional poetry.

Are you beginning to see the pattern of these questions, asked to the heart and conscience of men? It’s no wonder God’s word says men are without excuse, and that nature has revealed His handiwork.  It’s no wonder that men are proven liars.

God asks further and men should faint in such goodness:

‘Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?’

Oh boy, the waters above all ordered aright, as well as the directives followed by the lightning. This portion of Job alone demolishes godlessness, infidelity, and atheism of course quicker than lightning, and resounded by its thunder in agreement.  Job was a good man, his friends, eh, debatable, but these are questions for you and I, young and old.

And of course, more of God’s intrinsic glory revealed in 39. The ostrich. He deprived her of wisdom, yet gave her great wings, yet so unable to match this:

Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.

There is no knowledge greater than God’s, there is no power greater than His, and there is no glory outside of Him. Truly the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and to depart from evil is understanding.  And His questions are heavier than sand.

Apart from the twin towers of wisdom and understanding, all else is but artificial. (I really hope the eyes that have taken the time to read this, have considered how small man is, and how great God is.)

To the believer, this clear and certain peal is for thee. To the unbeliever, you hear the same thing. What will you now do? To ignore the clear sound, is to act like an unreasoning animal. We are better than that.  To hear God’s questions and not be arrested and humbled, we just may have become immune to life, and just may have considered all things miraculous as only ordinary. Tis a shame.

  1. Well, I certainly know all about the bullying and demand for dominance on the playground as of late as I’ve kind of been forced out on to the field just to get pushed around a hit by the folly of others.
    But there is a purpose in all of that as God’s hand remains true.

    The words of this Truth CS, which you share so starkly yet so precise and succinctly,
    could not be more timely.

    God poses the hard questions to man…yet man has learned so well how to deflect those pointed questions. This in an effort to simply, and what man foolishly thinks, is to ignore the Truth. Because if we can just ignore it, maybe it will go away and leave us alone.

    This is where man has tried, futilely I might add, to make God small while building himself up to be large. If we are large and God is then small…we have no need of worry, concern or yielding of self…because the ego of man cannot stand to yield.

    But that is the thing… in the end, it is the yielding of ourselves to that which is so much larger and so much greater than ourselves which is the key to our Salvation…

    A wonderful offering my friend.

        Actually years ago I came across the little instruction book by St Benedict. The Rule of Benedict. (yep, you can buy it on Amazon)
        It was a booklet that he wrote (circa 500AD) for those early members of the Benedictine Order…the ways in which he thought a Benedictine Monk should conduct themselves.
        The tiny ancient book has had tremendous staying power.
        In fact Fortune 500 companies have had their upper management read the book as a lesson on how to treat people.

        One of the first “lessons” is on being gracious to those who come your way.

        He was admonishing monks to unlock and open their doors to the monasteries well after hours in order to allow wayward and weary travelers a place of respite.
        Never mind what hour they come, turn no one away.
        If they are dirty, clean them.
        If they are hungry, feed them.
        Be a gracious host.
        It matters not the inconvenince to yourself.

        That has had a huge impact on me as I tend to grumble when and if I feel put out by say surprise guests or last minute news from my husband that a buddy of his from out of state is coming in town, say tomorrow…leaving me barely time to scramble to clean and cook.
        I would grouse to myself…
        forgetting that such opportunities to be open, kind and gracious to others is a form of ministry…
        I see the same thing here in little cookieland—a place to be a gracious host / hostess..
        kind and offering what I can in way of humiltiy and graciousness.
        I don’t always succed and can still fall back to grousing and feeling perturbed or put upon…but I continually have to draw myself back that God would have me take in any and all as we are all sinners falling woefully short of His Grace…

    Very convicting, too. Atheists are another matter entirely, but I truly am the master of all poisonous questions.

He is glorious and more patient then we can even imagine. I just regret what has sometimes been my poisonous tone.

    I love the way the Lord questions us too, as we see in Job, “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?” The Lord doesn’t “need” our answers, He asks us questions to lead us to the truth, to help us discover it for ourselves. Jesus was amazing that way too, as we read in the bible. He is not condemning, He is not imparting truth on us, so much as He is telling parables and asking us questions. One cannot even become a Christian without a willingness to engage in some critical thought, perhaps even some critical self-reflection.

    Frank Sinatra – My Way Lyrics
    And now, the end is near
    And so I face the final curtain
    My friend, I’ll say it clear
    I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain
    I’ve lived a life that’s full
    I traveled each and ev’ry highway
    And more, much more than this, I did it my way

    Regrets, I’ve had a few
    But then again, too few to mention
    I did what I had to do , I saw it through without exemption
    I planned each charted course, each careful step along the highway
    And more, much more than this, I did it my way

    Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
    When I bit off more than I could chew
    And through it all, when there was doubt
    I ate it up and spit it out
    I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

    I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
    I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
    And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
    To think I did all that
    And may I say, not in a shy way,
    “Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way”

    For what is a man, what has he got?
    If not himself, then he has naught
    The right to say the things he feels and not the words of one who kneels
    The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!

    We are clay pots. Did Sinatra fashion himself. Did he take the blows without cracking? Thanks to whom?

    Did Sinatra choose his parents or the place of his birth? If he achieve what the world calls success, how much did he achieve due to gifts he never earned?

    Before he was born God knew him. God gave him life, and He numbered his days. If he did it his way instead of His way, then he settled for second best.

    1 Corinthians 3:19-20 New King James Version (NKJV)

    19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; 20 and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”

      As we know, apart from the Creator, there is no satisfactory answer to that, nor any other question really.

      Did he take the blows without cracking? Thanks to whom? Another fine question!

      I wish there was reblog or highlight for comments; yours is a dandy Ctom. tkx for the time putting it together.

        If you enjoyed the comment, that’s enough. I attached it to a good post.

        You are right. That song did ask a good question. King David asked it too (Psalm 8 and Psalm 144). Sinatra’s song provides such a sad and feeble answer.

    So, John. About the moon and the sun looking approximately the same size. Are you still a believer that the earth is flat and both the moon and the sun rotate above the earth?

      Well let’s see mike; since I am a complete idiot in your eyes, one has to wonder what purpose an answer would serve, so there being no wood for your fire, the idiocy possibility will go out.

      So enjoy what I will not tell you. But I rather like God’s questions far better, such as found in Job 38.

      But study the life and times of the ant. There you will find my answer.

          Yes I could. However.

          Your question proves the essence of my post. While many intelligent people have varying opinions on things that differ, I have said here that God’s questions are far better, and the answers to His questions are far more worthier of our time.

          For instance, look at how easy my posts are derailed by visitors who only want to argue against God, scripture, and people of faith, all the while avoiding settled facts about such things as the nature and purpose of Israel, whether Solomon lived, was David his father, was there an exile, Did Daniel live, did Herod and Pilate make an alliance, in other words, settled facts about the credibility of scripture speaks to the heart of God Himself and His ability to keep His word. He can. He does.

          So while opinions vary about many things, I have proved that only God’s word settles all disputes, be they moral, spiritual, and yes, sometimes scientific, and that He can be trusted.

          The shape of the earth has long been argued, and good people vehemently disagree. It’s an issue that I find interesting but hardly worthy of doing battle on WP for many reasons, but the trifecta of nature and the exact sciences do not lie: the compass, the plumb line, and the carpenter’s level.

          Then there is that ant and the lessons he brings. That said, I prefer God’s questions to yours. You should too.

In fact, Thor got his day, Odin yesterday, and even the Indominatable Sun and the supposedly ‘supernatural because it doesn’t have grandchildren’ Moon got theirs coming in a couple of days. None of them actually exist. Why do you think the God of the Bible doesn’t have a day of His own?

          You are missing entirely the essence of DECLARE!

          You know what day of the week it is,, whether it be the Sabbath (Saturday) because God gave you a brain. Use it already.

          I saw hailstones the other day the size of baseballs. Was that natural, or ‘supernatural….’ Hmmm.

          Then there are the hundred lb. stones falling from the sky. Maybe you will get the memo that God’s word is waaaay ahead of you.

          Perhaps you should read again Job 38 and allow the Creator to have His say.

          Btw mike, it was God who named man, and it was /he who set in motion the days of the week. Time to wake up.

          This truth is just as reliable as ‘in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.’

          Soooo, small stones differ from hundred pound stones how? Just because you have not seen any YET?

          Perhaps you will remember this post and comment when that day arrives. Will you still blaspheme God? Will you still display your arrogance against Him?

          Mike. Understand this. Your reference to Christians habitually as brother is not a term of endearment to them, and you know it. It is a subterfuge. You posture and preen and go on about your ministerial qualifications, and use that word, in an intentional ruse to lure and trick believers. Yours is a very special kind of evil. No, we do not have the same Father. I come here working for mine, and you come here working for yours.

          Sorry mike, I have to agree with wally.

          From the moment you pretended to ‘ask’ questions of believers years ago, while using their ‘answers’ for your sole reason to ‘decon,’ you have been nothing but stubborn, and rebellious, blaming people of faith, scripture, and assessing evil to God, as if He was responsible for your own disappointments.

          At every opportunity, you use a believer’s blog post to not engage with the essence of the post, but to evangelize your new found atheism. That’s what it is, even if it does not sound pretty. The fact that you align yourself with the notables of godlessness says enough, especially when they spit out vile pornography.

          And you quoting scripture to a believer is hilarious, while you deny what scripture says to you. Truly doubleminded. Sorry for the hard words, but somebody has to tell you the truth. The truth of scripture stings, and that is a good thing. The balm of Gilead, and all that.
