Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. “She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL,” which translates, “GOD WITH US.” Matthew 1:18-23
Miracle of miracles … how can we even comprehend this story to be true? I really can understand how some of my more skeptical friends say … no way. The Bible is just fairy tale, they say ... another spiritualized version of the Santa Claus story; or as one of my best friends for life recently replied to me; “when I die, all that’s left is dirt.” The great thing about Christianity and living in America is that we can strongly disagree and still love and respect each other. Respect and love for the other person has nothing to do with political correctness or pretending that we respect or consider the other person's beliefs as true or of value. We tolerate each other, but on this subject, each of us believes the other to have believed a foolish teaching. I really can understand why we have irreconcilable differences. Our beliefs and loyalties are committed to rulers of opposing views. One true, one a lie. Good versus evil. Both can never be true.
Think about it. Meditate on it. A recently engaged virgin woman; from a very religious family; impregnated by the Holy Spirit; the child in her womb is God, the Creator of the universe coming to earth in the form of a man; for what purpose … to die on the cross for the sins of mankind; the prospective husband who had not touched his future bride gets a visit from an angel that tells him, “don’t worry about the fact that your fiancé is pregnant … God is inside of her.” Jesus is born and lives a perfect sinless life, performs many miracles, walks on water, raises the dead, and teaches a gospel of peace, love, forgiveness, and repentance; the Messiah will be killed by His own people, whose prophets clearly foretold His coming, but they did not recognize Him; He freely delivers Himself up to suffer the worst of deaths imaginable; buried under guard for three days only to be resurrected from the dead; victoriously ascends into the clouds; and this Savior now waits at the right hand of the Father interceding for His followers who do not deserve forgiveness … but are forgiven, justified, and redeemed and receive eternal life in heaven because He … Jesus Christ , Immanuel, the Messiah, God with us, the Savior of the world paid the penalty for all of the sins of man … once for all.
Are we all part of God’s plan created before time began? Did this all knowing, all powerful, ever present, Creator God, consider my innermost parts before the beginning of time? Am I important to God? ---------------------- Or am I just an accident … dirt, as my friend from childhood believes and contends? And are we actually no more important than the bait we would put on a fishing hook, or a leaf blowing in the wind?
Can you see how those unbelievers see all of this as fiction? The source of the problem is clear to me: "Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God." 2 Corinthians 4:4
A few days ago, I was in a discussion with a “Christian” friend online who tries to reconclie these opposing beliefs. This is clearly impossible. I asked him the following question: “Hundreds of millions of fossils have been discovered ... but none of them are transitional organism fossils. Fish are fish, birds are birds, cattle are cattle, and T-Rexes are T-Rexes ... in the fossil record. There are no fossils that reflect the gradual change from one animal kind into another." Darwinian evolution is a big lie being taught to our children and grandchildren; and any scientists who question this forced system are singled out, and their career is destroyed. Doesn't this injustice bother you? I asked. He responded with drawings of supposed transitional animals. When I rejected this fantasy as obvious drawings of science fiction … he sent me a series of pictures of human skulls. Obviously they were clearly not transitional fossils and there was no evidence of any linkage other than that they all appeared to be human. I responded with the following: “This shows me nothing --- slug to man is a fantasy. For you to contend otherwise is heretical. Birds are not men ... there is no connection ... period.” He responded; “So you believe all of the fossil remains of early man are fake? “I replied: “nope ... I just don't believe that what they have tried to do with them ... to make them fit into their false theory; but in any event they do not and cannot take you or me; or any other animate thing, for that matter ... from a slug to anything else. I'm surprised you would ask me such a silly question. Creating a hypothesis and then arranging things to try to fit these preconceived notions is not science. It is atheistic wishful thinking.” It is also a violation of true science, and legitimate scientists call this unscientific practice: "circular reasoning." He ended with; “Okie, Dokie” … in other words: “you are foolish, Bob.”
Of course my position is that I have accepted Jesus Christ and all of the other Truths of the Bible by faith ... it is not necessary for me to be able to explain all of that which is beyond anyone's human comprehension ... I am not God.
My final questions to him which he did not answer were: “who do you say Jesus Is? Are Jesus and the Creator one and the same? Or do you think there was no creator? Apparently his answer would be: No Creator ... but I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior. Do you see the disconnect and contradiction? The next question for him would be: how then can you (a Christian) accept these false teachings of men that are contrary to the Truth of God which is your basis for salvation?
“So the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” Therefore they picked up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple.”
Jesus said; “truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am” … and the Jewish leaders tried to stone Him and plotted his death from that point on. Why was what Jesus said so inflammatory to the Jews? Because, in their culture, this was the same as saying; “I am God.” Actually, God called himself “I Am” when He said to Moses; “tell Pharaoh … "I Am" sent you.”
I doubt this Christian will even bother to answer my questions. Similar to the scientists who are rejected because they question Darwinism; he has disregarded me. It is so much easier for unbelievers to write people like me off as foolish. Isn't that also what they did to Noah when he began building the ark? The obvious problem is that if someone does not believe in a creator, then the entire Bible is nothing more than just another fairy tale. Think about it … is it harder to believe God created the universe, the world, and man, and everything in it, as well as the story of Jesus Christ outlined above; or is it harder to believe that man evolved from a mistake in the mud and then trillions of more mistakes happened with the end result: being a slug, and that after a trillion more mistakes it became a crawling or flying creature, and that after a trillion more mistakes it became an ape, and that after a trillion more transitions it became a man?
In a recent post, I mentioned where Bill Maher called Christians ignorant and hypocritical while using the story of Noah and the Ark as evidence. Maher’s logic was that people who believed the Noah story are either ignorant; or that those who say that they are Christians, and that God’s Word is truth, and then disregard the hard to believe Biblical stories ... such as Noah and creation are hypocritical. Maher, an atheist is clearly right. If we say that we do not believe in creation or the story of Noah … then how can we say we believe the (equally hard to believe)story of the virgin birth above, or more specifically … the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ?
Immanuel means: “God with us” … Jesus is not just another Jewish prophet or good teacher here. It is hypocritical to say we trust Jesus as our Lord and Savior, but at the same time accept only those parts of His Truth that make sense from a human perspective. Either God the Creator is Jesus Christ, and either this verse is true, or it is a lie: “and the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14. We cannot have it both ways. Either the Savior is the Creator of the universe, or He is not. Either His Truth is absolute Truth, or it is not. Either His Word became flesh and dwelt among us, or it did not.
I am a Biblical fundamentalist in the original sense, and I am proud of it. I believe in the fundamental Truths of the Bible. All of God’s Word is Truth. Everything else is false when it conflicts with this Truth. It doesn't matter what the universities or the scientists say ... when they are contrary to God's truth, it is just so much more babble. To believe in God's Truth is to believe in Jesus Christ … To not believe in this Truth is to not believe in Jesus Christ. If you are a Christian and you have chosen to believe otherwise ... to follow the teachings of men rather than God the Creator, I challenge you this Christmas to reconsider. Jesus has much more for you to learn but you cannot humble the Creator and Savior of the world to the teachings of men. He is your God ... it cannot be the other way around.
To my atheist friend from childhood, as well as my online Christian friends with conflicted beliefs, my prayer for you is that God the Creator, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit will make the Truth clear to each of you. Whether it is the teachings of men or the teachings of God, the belief you receive is always, in the end, accepted by faith. It is not about evidence. This is a faith decision. Place your faith in Jesus Christ totally and completely, this Christmas and always ... and then peace, joy, and blessings beyond comprehension will be yours always throughout eternity.
And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. Then came the Jews round about him, and said to him, how long do you make us to doubt? If you be the Christ, tell us plainly.
Jesus answered them, I told you, and you believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. But you believe not, because you are not of my sheep, as I said to you.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give to them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one.
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from my Father; for which of those works do you stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, for a good work we stone you not; but for blasphemy; and because that you, being a man, make yourself God. John 10:23-33
DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES ...
A true miracle is an event in the external world brought about by a simple act of God, without the ability to be understood by the human senses. Miracles validate the divine commission of a religious teacher and the truth of his message. God ordinarily effects his purpose through the agency of second causes; but he has the power to change the fixed order, and thus of working miracles. As a result we have miracles, through God's hand intervening to control or reverse nature's ordinary movements. Miracles are above nature and beyond man's understanding. Miracles show God's power that is not limited by the laws either of matter or of mind. This power transcends the fixed laws which govern their movements, a supernatural power.
Now, wait a minute … do you really believe in miracles?
Would you bet your life on miracles?
This past week, a Christian friend of mine made an interesting point. We were discussing the presidential race and he pointed out that for many people in the world, the beliefs of Christians are just as hard to believe as those of Mormons. He was trying to explain why he did not have a problem voting for Romney, a Mormon. My other friend, who was listening replied; “if you knew what Mormons actually believe, you would not make that statement.” Well on this one, I would have to agree with both of them. I respect Romney as a person and think that he would be a far better president than Obama; but as my second friend contends many teachings of the Mormon religion are totally contrary to my Christian beliefs. In a perfect world, I would obviously rather have a born again conservative Christian president; but anyone of proven character is more desirable than a person who appears to be: sort of, pretending, to be a Christian.
So why as my first friend contends is Biblical Christianity so hard to for unbelievers to believe?
Well that is the topic of this post: Miracles Upon Miracles.
The first miracle is: Jesus the Savior, Messiah, and Teacher is actually presenting Himself as God the Creator.
Next, He presents His thousands of miracles as conclusive evidence. The religious leaders called this blasphemy and sought to stone Jesus ...
what do you say?
As we all know, understanding miracles is beyond our human comprehension. As Jesus pointed out to the Jewish religious leaders; His miracles are the difference between Him and all of the others. The miracles of Christ noted here are in reality, only a small portion of the thousands of miracles He performed in His short walk on earth.
Surely, Jesus has performed many, many, more miracles than these ... every day ... from the first day of creation.
The religious leaders were testing Jesus; “tell us plainly who you are, they said” They were looking for the answer that Jesus eventually gave … so that they could attack Him for blasphemy. “I and my Father are one, (He said) ... then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him.”
Jesus continually repeated this Truth which ultimately resulted in His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins.
But Jesus also referred to much more here as well. “The works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me”The works that Jesus speaks of are the Miracles upon Miracles I want to touch upon today. You see … Jesus makes it clear to the Pharisees that they believed not in His miracles, because they were not His sheep. “Jesus answered them, I told you, but you believe not, because you are not of my sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give to them eternal life; and they shall never perish,” John 10:25-27
When we say we believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior; that means we either believe in His miracles … or we are not His sheep.
Do you really believe in miracles?
Well that naturally leads us to the question: what miracles? The answer to that is simple:
... all of them.
Simply click on the highlighted verses to have your faith increased as you review the miracles of our savior, witnessed by thousands who as a result, were compelled to believe. Do not allow for yourself to continue to be blinded as the Pharisees were blinded … by principalities, by powers, by the rulers of the darkness of this world, and by spiritual wickedness in high places.
These miracles are living proof of the one and only Savior of mankind.

I believe in all of them!
I believe in His creation of the universe and all things that this creation entails.
Next we will look into the miracle of His plans for the nation of Israel, and the rest of us as well. But make no mistake; God’s plan is first about His chosen people of Israel.
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said to him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be you perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. Neither shall your name any more be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made you. And I will make you exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come out of you. And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your seed after you in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God to you, and to your seed after you. And I will give to you, and to your seed after you, the land wherein you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. Genesis 17:1-8 God bless you my friends, Bob
In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him;
and without him was not any thing made that was made.
And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelled among us,
and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-14
DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES ...
Now, wait a minute … do you really believe in miracles?
Would you bet your life on miracles?
My atheist friend who I greatly respect says no. “I don’t believe in miracles”
Oh, really; I ask; what about evolution?
Well yeah, I believe in evolution, he said, but that is proven science.
You mean like the science of man-made global warming has also been proven; I asked? “Well, yes.”
Well then, now explain this, I asked?
What are the odds for evolution to be true? I don’t know he said. Well, let me explain something; I replied.
Borel's law of probability states that if the odds of an event happening are worse than 1 in 10 to the 50th power, then that event will NEVER HAPPEN.
Dr. Harold Morowitz, former professor of biophysics at Yale University, estimated that the probability of the chance formation of the smallest, simplest form of living organism known is 1 out of 10/340,000,000. One out of ten to the 340 millionth power is unimaginable odds. This large figure is a "1" followed by 340,000,000 zeroes. As you can see, Morowitz' odds against even the simplest life evolving were infinitely more than 1 out of 10/50, making evolution beyond impossible.
The very popular evolutionist, Dr. Carl Sagan of Cornell University, figured even steeper odds against the simplest life beginning naturally on a planet such as earth. According to Sagan, the probability would be about 1 out of 10/2,000,000,000. Try to imagine ten to the 2 billionth power. Pretty astounding odds, don’t you think? Interestingly, these impossible odds against evolution came from one of the most prominent evolutionists of our time.
And Nobel Prize winning biologist, George Wald of Harvard University said: “One only has to concede the magnitude of the task to concede the possibility of the spontaneous generation of a living organism is impossible. Yet here we are—as a result, I believe, of spontaneous generation.” Of course, Dr. Wald also thinks that time solves all problems: “Time is, in fact, the hero of the plot, he says … one only has to wait: time itself performs the miracles.”
The deeper you go with this discussion, the more impossible the idea of evolution becomes and the more complex the explanation. Hopefully these odds are enough to demonstrate my point. Nevertheless, what this all boils down to is a personal choice … each of us make a faith decision, if you will; to believe in what scientists (I have thousands of them) freely admit is “impossible” rather than to believe in creation by an all knowing, all powerful, Creator God.
This is our choice.
Time and chance; or the Creator God … which miracles will you be faithful to?
But in either event; one must believe in miracles upon miracles.
There are two primary reasons why so many scientists who have set out to disprove the claims of the Bible end up becoming born again Christians. First, they come to grips with the impossible odds of evolution, and next when they start considering the miracles in the Bible they come to realize that the “Evidence That Demands A Verdict” as Josh McDowell so convincingly demonstrates in the book by the same name are too compelling to deny. My scientist friend once told me: “I got to the point where there was too much evidence not to believe.
So why do so many not believe in the Creator? The answer to that question was also explained by the apostle Paul as follows: “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not” 2 Corinthians 4:3-4
Can this be true? Are many blinded by an evil false god who is supernaturally controlling the minds of perhaps the majority of the human race, and leading those in ways contrary to the Creator God’s purpose and plan for mankind? Well this is also taught by the Bible here:
“Put on the whole armor of God; that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil; for we wrestle not against flesh and blood; but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6:11-12 So what am I getting at here?
Well that is quite simple, in a series of posts that will follow: I will present “miracles upon miracles” so that when considered with an open mind the evidence will contradict false conclusions and help many to understand the Truth.
Those who already know the Truth, will have much new evidence that will help strengthen their faith. I am convinced that there are literally millions of people who have accepted Christ; but at the same time their beliefs and faith have been compromised by the spiritual forces of wickedness in high places that have gained control of many of our churches and our public educational system.
Okay now: who are you?
Have you casually rejected God’s Truth without really considering the evidence that demands a verdict? Are you a born again believer who has accepted the truth, but need to have your faith strengthened? Or are you one who has accepted Christ, but you have chosen to compromise your beliefs; blending the teachings of the world with a portion of God’s Truth, until you have found a comfortable place to rest? Or are you the spiritual man that Paul talks about who has been transformed by the renewing of your mind?
Well, in any event, get ready … because we are about to explore miracle upon miracle. With each lesson, I intend to challenge your faith. We are told to test ourselves. That is what this series of posts is intended to help you do.
Now, let’s start with the first miracle:
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1
Some call themselves Christians and yet reject this miracle. In fact, I recently had a Christian tell me she rejects the Old Testament, and that she is a New Testament Christian. Another told me he only follows the love teachings of Jesus and rejects the rest. God is Love, you say. What is wrong with this, you ask? Everything! When someone rejects the Creator, he also rejects the Savior. Jesus said: “I and my Father are one.” John 10:30. Jesus continually brought this fact to the attention of the religious leaders; this is the reason they crucified Him.
So for you, which will it be?
You can’t have it both ways.
You cannot have a Savior who is not also the Creator of all things.
Prove it … you say. Well, I intend to do just that, over a period of time; miracles upon miracles. But I cannot provide absolute proof. I have believed in the Creator Savior Jesus Christ on the basis of faith. I can only provide evidence. Each of us then must make a decision of faith. We all make these decisions of trust every day. My friend who decides to sell his stocks and buy gold has placed his faith in the teachings of a man who wrote a book he just read. And he unconsciously makes a faith decision in someone else's advice.
When we get in a plane or a car, we place our faith in the pilot or the driver, that they will guide us safely to our destination. Many years ago, I flew across Africa on an Ethiopian Air jetliner filled with radical Islamics … piloted by an Islamic flight crew. They required each passenger to identify their luggage before boarding. Would I get on that plane with those same passengers and that flight crew today? No way! Why not? Am I prejudiced? Not in the least. But knowing what I know ... I am not comfortable placing my life in the hands of those with radical Islamic beliefs. I also would not get into a taxi in Tijuana Mexico, either.
You see what I mean, every day we make unconscious decisions to place our trust in others. Those who prepare our food, teach our children, and provide vital services. We have all accepted philosophies and beliefs on faith that we for whatever reason, we have accepted as the truth. Millions worldwide have accepted the teaching of man-made global warming as a world threatening crisis, based upon flawed science; and trillions of dollars and the lives of millions are in the balance as a result. Every day we unconsciously believe in something.
At the very least, whatever you believe; creation or evolution, you are accepting a miracle by faith. This is the choice that we all must make: atheistic evolution science; or Creation by the Creator God. My atheist friend has rejected God; but has he even considered the evidence for creation? No … my friend stands with those who faithfully believe in evolution, and will receive the consequences: “but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” John 3:18
But you might say: “Well, I believe in evolution and I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior as well, what do you say to that?”
The question is better asked; “What does Jesus say to that?” n
Remember Jesus said: “I and my Father are one” Therefore to accept evolution is to reject the Savior Creator. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made … and the Word was made flesh, and dwelled among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-14
This pretty much says it all: The Word; God the Creator; And Jesus the Savior are all one and the same. And they are all full of grace and truth. To reject God’s Word as truth is to reject the Creator and Savior as well. To reject the Creator is to reject the Savior and the Truth. Therefore one cannot intelligently or otherwise accept Jesus the Savior and reject God’s Word or the Creator.
Do you believe the first miracle? There are many more to come.
often contradict the wisdom of the world. Since we have been programmed by the world ... we have come to accept these worldly ideas as truth ... but when we consider God’s perspective ... we come to understand ... "the Lord's ways are not our ways"
Don't just read these writings ... meditate and pray over God's Word ... Listen to the Holy Spirit ... and be transformed by renewing your mind. He who died on our behalf wants you to ... allow the love of Christ to control you ... so that you might become ... the righteousness of God in Him.
Be an Ambassador of Christ ... with a ministry of reconciliation. Share God's eternal Truth and Love ... with everyone He brings into your path.
