This is a letter to our friends –
“Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts will be established.” [ Proverbs 16:3]
Lately, as I pray about these blog posts, “tree rings” pops into my thoughts. Some folks have a hard time with the biblical account of the beginning. Moses lived some 1500 years after Adam & Eve. Moses wrote the book of Genesis. How did he know so much about the Garden of Eden?
The Bible says Adam lived 930 years. That overlapped with Methuselah some 243 years. Do you suppose Adam shared stories around the campfire with Methuselah?
Methuselah lived 969 years and overlapped with Noah’s son, Shem, some 98 years. Shem (600 years) overlapped with Abraham’s boy, Isaac, 50 years. Isaac overlapped Amram for 53 years. Amram passed the stories on to Moses for 58 years.
So that is just 5 generations with big overlaps between Adam and Moses. Not to mention the many other opportunities to pass on information.
But how about rocks that appear to be millions of years old? And the light rays from the stars that have traveled eons to reach us? The Bible account of human history since Adam in only around 6000 years.
That brings up “tree rings”. The Bible account of creation spans only 6 days. When Eve saw the trees in the garden, how old did they appear? They were bearing fruit and were strong enough to carry the weight. Had Adam used a chain saw and cut the trunk of a tree it would have had tree rings. Tree rings show the age of the tree. BUT – The tree was less than 6 days old!
Conclusion – Things were created with the image of age. Star light waves were created when the star was created. This brings to mind – HOW BIG IS YOUR GOD?”
