"For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't, no proof is possible."
Interesting. I saw this quote come across on twitter today, and it resounded with me. I retweeted it, not knowing who said it originally.
Later, I started thinking about what I would blog about today. I remembered this quote, and wanted to see who said it.
I was quite surprised when I found it it was actually Stuart Chase, a Neo-Socialist. I just skimmed the information about Mr. Chase, but it did not take two seconds for me to know without a doubt there is very little, if anything at all, that Mr. Chase and I would have in common.
The funny thing is what he said is still true.
If you believe in something, there is no proof necessary. For those who do not believe, there is no proof that you can present that will change that person's mind.
The late Mr. Chase and I absolutely agree on this statement.
There is so much proof happening right in front of our eyes to prove the validity of The Holy Bible as the ordained Word of God. There is actual proof, written in black and white, that can be proven to exist well before I was born, as well as anyone else reading this blog, that foretells of actual events we see going on in our world.
I am obviously a born again, Bible believer. I am also an avid prophecy watcher. My hearts strongest desire is to spend eternity worshipping my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
What I find absolutely amazing, astonishing and unbelievable is how many people cannot see reality when it is right in front of them. So many deny the existence of God and that The Bible is His Holy Word.
My question for those who do not believe in God or that The Bible is Truth is this: Can you HONESTLY read Isaiah 19 and not see prophecy that was written thousands of years ago being played out before your very eyes?
If you do not take the time to read it, then you have no place to discuss this with me. If you do not believe, and you do read this, I truly wonder how in the world can you not see? In this scenario, the quote I started with speaks for itself. If this does not prove the existence of Almighty God, and that The Bible is Truth, and foretells of world events that would happen thousands of years in the future, then there is nothing at all that I can do but pray for you. And pray for you, I honestly do!
It was very surreal to me today when I saw on the news that Egyptians were in the streets on camels and chariots now. If this is not right out of history, I do not know what is. In a very strange sense it is history colliding with future. Chariots and camels take on an army of tanks.
I cannot imagine being Isaiah, thousands of years ago, seeing this vision! For me, it is neat to think about John, when he saw the Revelation. To see the future, and describe it in his language, what to us would be so very primitive.
Isaiah lived a couple of thousand years- give or take a few years- before John did. So imagine his vision!
While it is true that some of this prophecy has come to pass, much of it hasn't. I also believe that some of the prophecy overlaps- meaning it can and will happen more than once in history.
I have found three websites that go into great detail and discussion about Isaiah 19. If you are at all interested, I will include the links to these three sites at the end of today's post.
Lord God, I pray for blind eyes to be opened! I believe that everything happens is for a reason. I don't know how many people will come to you from this prophecy, if any at all. I pray that hearts will be softened and eyes will be opened to see the Truth. We are living in very perilous times! As a Christian, it is a dichotomy of tense anticipation and excitement. No, I am not at all excited about the turmoil. But I am excited because I know that these things must come to pass. I pray that many will come to know You during these perilous times.
As I do each day, I continue to pray for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. I pray for her privacy, her comfort, her peace, her rehab, her family and friends. I pray that she will find forgiveness in her heart for this heinous act that was committed against her. I pray for her mental healing, her physical healing, emotional healing and her spiritual healing. I pray for her husband, Mark Kelly, that You will give him strength, courage, love, support, emotional, mental and spiritual healing. Keep them both safe in Your loving arms.
I continue to pray for this nation, Lord God. May she humble herself before you, turn from her wicked ways and repent so that You will heal our land.
I pray all of these things in the precious, holy Name of Jesus Christ, Messiah, Lord and Savior. Amen.
