THE MOON HAS A STORY TO TELL!

Discovery_News_Paper_HeaderWritten by: Chuck Anderson of Discovery News

America sent its first Apollo Spacecraft to the moon on May 30, 1966. It was designed to send back photographs of the moon’s surface in preparation for a manned flight which would make history in July, 1969.

P10-Moon1The Surveyor I Lunar Lander was equipped with large landing pods on long landing feet because many scientists were concerned about the cosmic dust that accumulates on the moon. At the present measurable rate of solar dust that is quietly settling upon both the moon and earth, scientists calculated that the dust could be as much as 54 feet deep , built up over the past 4.5 billion years.

P10-Moon2

Astronaut Neil Armstrong takes a “big step for mankind” as he steps onto the lunar surface. History was made on July 20, 1969.

The moon is much younger than NASA scientists imagined!

When the first Apollo 11 manned space craft landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, the austronauts and scientists were amazed that the surface of the moon is rock solid with just about 1/8″ of accumulated solar dust! That would indicate that the moon was approximately 8,000 years old instead of 4.5 billion years old as per the speculations of evolutionary scientists and philosophers.

P10-Moon3

Another scientific calculation that is troubling to the evolutionary calendar is the fact that the moon is very gradually receding away from planet earth. The distance from the moon to the earth is increasing every year by approximately 2 inches. Two inches per year is not much, but if you multiply that by 4.5 billion years as suggested by evolutionists, the moon would be nearly out of sight by now!

Is it possible that the evolutionary time table is wrong and that the moon and earth are only thousands of years old as taught in the Biblical account of creation?

JUPITER: AN AMAZING PLANET WITH OVER SIXTY MOONS!

Discovery_News_Paper_HeaderWritten by: Chuck Anderson of Discovery News

The size and complexity of the universe is truly astounding, and it is constantly revealing its unique design.

P10-Jupiter1

In 1610, the well-known astronomer Galileo peered through his telescope and discovered four moons orbiting around the planet Jupiter. They are called the “Galilean Moons” named after Galileo. We now know that Jupiter has at least sixty-three moons. Saturn also has a number of moons — sixty of them in all!

Wouldn’t it be awesome to look up into the night sky and see sixty moons orbiting our earth?

But there is an important lesson to learn from all those moons on Jupiter and Saturn. Scientists are amazed that they are not all orbiting in the same direction!

One-third of their primary moons have retrograde (backward) motion, opposite to the rotational direction of their planets.

This casts some serious doubt on the feasibility of the “Big Bang” theory of the beginning of the universe, because everything should be spinning and orbiting in the same direction if they all came from the same “big bang” energy source.

Both Uranus and Venus rotate backwards, compared to the other planets orbiting our sun. The other seven planets rotate forward in relation to their respective orbits. This could not have happened if it all began with a BIG BANG!

Lost Cities of Sodom and Gomorrah Located Along Shores of the Dead Sea!

Discovery_News_Paper_HeaderWritten by: Chuck Anderson of Discovery News

P9-SG1

Unlike the historical sites found in Saudi Arabia, you can visit the ruins of the “five cities of the plain” in Israel. The ashen ruins of what is believed to be the city of ancient Gomorrah is the best preserved site. It is located at the foot of Masada, the well-known mountaintop fortress of King Herod where nearly 1,000 Jewish patriots took their own lives rather than submit to the tyranny of Rome.

As you drive into Masada from the main road that goes along the Dead Sea, you will notice a large parking lot on the right hand side. Going to the north it is an easy walk to the most striking ruin that stood out above the rest of the city. A large man-made sphinx-like object was apparently set up near the city gates for protection from their enemies. Now it stands there, its ashen remains giving testimony that the pagan idol was powerless against the destructive fires that descended upon the community.

I was quite surprised, when I visited the site, that a pocket knife could easily penetrate the layers of white ash. The material is easily broken off and crumbles in your fingers. As it is rubbed between your fingers it turns into a fine talc-like powder. One cannot help but wonder what kind of fire it would take to turn solid rock into crumbling ash.

P9-Pellets

In some areas of the ancient city there are numerous golf ball sized sulfur pellets. Some of them are encased in a hard shell which was the resulting of burning. The sulfur tablets have been tested and consist of 98% pure sulfur and a trace of magnesium which would have burned extremely hot. The samples I collected would burst into an immediate toxic flame when touched with a match. If you visit the site just after a rain storm you will find the brimstone pellets on the flat tops of the ruins. It would appear that a torrential rainstorm of burning sulfur tell upon these ancient cities.

P9-SG2

_______________________________________________________________

Nothing Left But Ashes and Brimstone Pellets!

P9-Ruins

We should remember, according to the Biblical account, that the area was once a very beautiful and prosperous valley. The book of Genesis records that Lot, the nephew of the ancient patriarch, Abraham, chose to live there because the area was “well watered everywhere, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the guarded of the LORD.” Genesis 13:10

It is obvious now, that the entire area came under the severe judgement of God.

What was the sin that brought about the fiery wrath upon these cities? Many other pagan societies survived without experiencing such horrendous judgment. According to the Bible, God destroyed the cities because of their great immorality and perversion.

God apparently preserved the ancient ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah as a warning to other civilizations as we read in 2 Peter 2:6 — “God turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly.”

THE SITES OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH WERE SEEN BY THE ANCIENT HISTORIAN JOSEPHUS

During the first century, the Jewish historian Josephus recorded the visible existence of the ruins in his day — “Now this country is then so sadly burnt up, that nobody cares to come at it; …It was of old a most happy land, both for the fruits it bore and the riches of its cities, although it be mow all burnt up. It is related how for the impiety of its inhabitants, it was burnt by lightning: in consequence of which there are still the remainders of the divine fire; and the traces of the five cities are still to be seen.” (Josephus in his “Wars of the Jews,” Book IV, Chapter VIII)

Assurance Of An Eternal Heaven

Can I really be sure that I will be in heaven when this life is past? That seems to be the question that concerns us most. I know that various religious people and groups tell me a lot of things and most of what I hear is in conflict with what others say. Is there a way that I can be absolutely sure that I will be in heaven? I don’t want to hear more of man’s theories or philosophies on the subject… I want to be sure… as soon as possible!
Then, I would submit to you that we consult with the One who has set the qualifications for entrance into His heaven. Surely, if He wants us in heaven He will tell us how to get there. Amazingly, God has already given us the rule book (The Bible). The rules are simple and to the point. He has preserved the rules for us through many centuries by giving the message of redemption to special men so they could record God’s Word so we may have it today. There is a battle on right now between God (the Creator and author of the rules) and Satan. Satan supports and distributes lies. He tries to get people to fall for the lies that he promotes. That is why it is so very important to consult the Book of Truth– The Bible. A good reliable translation is the KJV (1611)

Let’s look briefly at the facts that we should know, then we can progress from there…

Fact #1 All people are sinners…

Romans 3:23;
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Ecclesiastes 7:20;
For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.”
Romans 6:23;
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Death means you will not be in God’s heaven. There will be separation from God for all eternity in hell.
Simply stated, we are kept out of heaven and doomed to be in hell because of our sin problem. Something had to be done to provide forgiveness and cleansing of those sins. Heaven is a perfectly prepared place for a prepared people. So then, no sin can possibly go into God’s perfect heaven.

Fact #2 God loves you…

John 3:16;
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Romans 5:8;
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Jesus shed His perfect, sinless blood so that we can have the forgiveness and cleansing from the guilt and penalty of sin.
Ephesians 1:7;
In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace;“

Fact #3 We must repent and believe that Jesus paid the complete price for our sin.

Acts 16:31;
“And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
Romans 10:9-10,13;
9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
John 1:12;
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
John 5:24;
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (note: this is present tense; RIGHT NOW!!!)
John 3:36;
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
I John 5:10-13;
10He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
John 10:28;
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
Believing is simply… putting your whole trust in Jesus as the One who died in your place for your sins. On the other hand, it also means that we dare not subtract from His finished work on Calvary’s cross. We must come to Him as a guilty, defiled sinners and receive by faith the gift of eternal life in the person of Jesus Christ, thus making us his blood-bought children and forgiving us the guilt and penalty of our sins.
Ephesians 2:8-9;
8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Some have tried to add to God’s plan of salvation by telling people they must do certain good works or keep certain church ordinances. Works of any sort can never help. Titus 3:5 tells us: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us.” Nothing can be added to, or taken away from what God has already done to secure our salvation. Our salvation does not become more, or less, secure by what we do or do not do. If it could be of works, then we have not really trusted Jesus by faith as our personal Saviour from sin.

When one is born-again (John 3:7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.), there is a difference. There is new joy, new goals and a new determination to do what pleases our Heavenly Father. We also become aware of those around us that are lost and begin praying that they, too, would soon trust Jesus as their Saviour. The Bible tells us that we are a new creature in Christ by trusting Jesus by faith as our Saviour.
II Corinthians 5:15,17,18;
15And that he died for all, that they which henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again… 17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new… 18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;”

Assurance of salvation can only be a reality when we have been “born-again”.
John 3:3;
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

The Holy Spirit now bears witness with our spirit that we are right now, the children of God.
Romans 8:16;
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:”
Assurance is based on the promises of God. (not on feelings or emotions). God always tells us the truth. God wants you to have a settled confidence of salvation. Take Him for what He has told you in His word.
John 20:31;
“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
Romans 8:35-39;
35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Ephesians 1:13-14;
13In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”

Claim it by faith. “God said it and I can believe it”. Since you now have Jesus, you are a child of the King. Rejoice, be glad and walk close to your “new-found” friend who will never leave you nor forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5b; “for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”) Get into a good gospel preaching church, be baptized by immersion, and study your Bible, and pray. Grow in the things of God, and serve Him until you are actually in the very presence of the One who planned it all. If you still have not believed on Jesus Christ as your Saviour, I would urge you to settle the issue today. Pray and invite Jesus to be your Saviour and begin that new life. You will be glad that you did.

Split Rock at Horeb

Discovery_News_Paper_HeaderWritten by: Chuck Anderson of Discovery News

P8-Horeb1

When Moses struck the rock, water
sufficient for 
a million people
poured forth!

One of the most significant discoveries at the Mount Sinai site is the Split Rock at Horeb that provided water for the Hebrews.

The rock is an impressive landmark, resting on top of a mound which is approximately 100 feet high. The rock itself is a huge boulder approximately 60 feet high and split down the middle with an opening large enough for a man to walk through.

Of great significance is the fact that on both sides of the rock there are obvious marks of water erosion. There are also what appear to be man-made channels running from the rock to where the Hebrews would have camped. The amount of water required to sustain all of the people plus their flocks of animals would have been absolutely enormous. Who would have thought that water could gush forth from a rock in the desert? But the testimony of the area bears record that the God of miracles sustained His people in a miraculous way.

The Real Mt. Sinai is Located in Saudi Arabia!

Discovery_News_Paper_HeaderWritten by: Chuck Anderson of Discovery News
Jebel el-Lawz, the mountain charred by the fiery presence of the LORD when He gave the Law to Moses, still stands there as a quiet testimony of the historical accuracy of the Bible.

Jebel el Lawz, the mountain charred by the fiery presence of the LORD when He gave the Law to Moses, still stands there as a quiet testimony of the historical accuracy of the Bible.

P8-Sinai1

The Bedouins called this mountain Jebel el Lawz. It stands there in stark contrast to the other mountains in the area — scortched black on the top. The Scriptures described the time when Moses ascended to the top of the mountain to receive the Ten Commandments — “And Mount Sinai was altogether in a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire; and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.”  Exodus 19:18

Explorer Ron Wyatt knew that locating the Red Sea Crossing site was the first step in finding the real Mt. Sinai. In 1984, after the underwater chariot wheels were found, Wyatt and his two sons secretly entered Saudi Arabia.

Wyatt knew that the traditional site, located in the Sinai Peninsula, could not be the authentic mountain because Galatians 4:25 declares that — “…Mount Sinai [is] in Arabia.” The ancient land of Midian is where Moses had fled from Pharaoh, and the land of Midian was in Arabia, not in the Sinai Peninsula.

In addition to the charred and melted mountain top, Wyatt found numerous artifacts that proved beyond a doubt that this was the encampment site of the Hebrews where God gave them the Law.

Remains of twelve handcrafted pillars Moses erected for the twelve tribes of Israel.

Remains of twelve handcrafted pillars Moses erected for the twelve tribes of Israel.

The encampment was a massive area that could have easily accommodated a million or more people. A large number of rocks placed in circular patterns are thought to mark actual tent locations.

Beginning in 1992, Jim and Penny Caldwell were living and working in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and visited the famed mountain with their children fourteen times.

Quite by “coincidence” they had seen a hand-drawn map by Ron Wyatt when they were visiting Nuweiba Beach and that led them to their first of many ventures to the “Mountain of God.”

The Caldwells have a web site at www.jimandpenny.com which details many of their adventures.

What appears to be an altar area has been found at the Mt. Sinai site in Saudi Arabia, the ancient land of Midian. Evidence abounds that this was an area where many animals were sacrificed.

It should be noted that there is absolutely no evidence of an encampment or other artifacts at the traditional Mt. Sinai desert. Sometimes we assume things because someone makes a wild guess or writes a name on a map. The fact is, the real Mount Sinai is in Saudi Arabia.

Moses Was Trapped Between the Mountains and the Red Sea!

Discovery_News_Paper_HeaderWritten by: Chuck Anderson of Discovery News
Coral-encrusted chariot wheels litter the bottom of the Red Sea identifying the site of the Exodus where Moses was delivered and Pharaoh's army was destroyed.

Coral-encrusted chariot wheels litter the bottom of the Red Sea identifying the site of the Exodus where Moses was delivered and Pharaoh’s army was destroyed.

The discovery of chariot wheels! What an incredible confirmation of the Biblical account of the Exodus!

Pharaoh was convinced that Moses had made a critical blunder. Instead of going around the northern tip of the Red Sea to freedom, Moses suddenly turned and led his people into the Wadi Watir which is a narrow canyon that winds down to the water’s edge of the Red Sea.

At the end of the canyon was a huge beach, now a resort area called Nuweiba Beach. To the Hebrews seeking to escape from Egypt, it seemed like a death trap. Mountains to the south came right down to the water, and an Egyptian fort blocked any escape to the north.

Pharaoh’s army pursued thinking that an easy massacre was just hours away. They were right. But Pharaoh and his commanders had no way of knowing they would be the ones destroyed by walls of water that loomed up nearly 900 feet on either side of them.

Today the remnants of Pharaoh’s chariots and army still litter the bottom of the Gulf of Aqaba like an ancient junk yard.

Numerous chariot axles and wheels are found at the bottom of the Red Sea

Numerous chariot axles and wheels are found at the bottom of the Red Sea!

The Gulf of Aqaba is very deep, reaching to depths of nearly 5,000 feet. The underwater terrain resembles the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona with steep drop-offs near the shorelines. Crossing the Red Sea at most spots would be absolutely impossible for a group of freedom seekers numbering one million or more, even if all the water dried up.

But at the end of Nuweiba Beach, the land slopes gently away at a 6 percent slope as it crosses the 8-mile wide gulf. This underwater roadway, approximately 200 yards wide, descends to a depth of 900 feet before it gently ascends again to the Saudi Arabian side, the ancient land of Midian where Moses had lived for 40 years in exile. This remarkable underwater roadway was the path of life and freedom for the people of Israel, but for Pharaoh and his army it was the pathway of destruction.

UNDERWATER LAND-BRIDGE

P7-Moses2

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

A highly respected researcher and marine biologist from Sweden by the name of Lennart Moller did extensive investigations at the Red Sea crossing site off the shores of Nuweiba Beach. He has authored a book entitled “The Exodus Case” and has concluded that this is definitely the site where the armies of Egypt met their doom.

Dr. Moller verified the finding of numerous horse and human bones — “Finally, the actual site of the Red Sea crossing has been shown to have a number of marine archeological remains, from some sort of disaster. This disaster included a large number of animals, horses, human beings, chariots and wheels, which are lying on the seabed of the underwater bridge. Some skeletal parts are petrified which implies that the event took place several thousand years ago. The finds are scattered over a wide area, from the west side (the coast of the Sinai Peninsula) to the east side (the coast of northwest Saudi Arabia) and imply a very extensive disaster. Altogether, these finds give a picture of a disaster that probably occurred at the time of what the Bible calls the Exodus.” (The Exodus Case, page 229)

P7-Moses5

The Canyon of Wadi Watir as it opens onto Nuweiba Beach. This is the area where the Hebrews were trapped between the Red Sea and Pharaoh’s army.

P7-Moses3

The deep canyon sides of the Wadi Watir would have prevented Moses and his followers from escaping from the pursuing armies of Pharaoh. Scripture calls the area “Pi-Hahiroth” which means “the mouth of the gorges.”

With the mountains on the sides and the Red Sea before them, the Hebrews were trapped when the Egyptian army closed the way of escape behind them.

No one would have dreamed that one of the greatest miracles of all time was about to free the slaves and destroy their taskmasters.

When I Say, “I Am A Christian”!

kneeling in prayer sunset

When I say… ‘I am a Christian’
I’m not shouting ‘I’m clean livin’.
I’m whispering ‘I was lost,
Now I’m found and forgiven.’

“When I say… ‘I am a Christian’
I don’t speak of this with pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble
and need Christ to be my guide.

“When I say… ‘I am a Christian’
I’m not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I’m weak
And need His strength to carry on.

“When I say… ‘I am a Christian’
I’m not bragging of success.
I’m admitting I have failed
And need God to clean my mess.

“When I say… ‘I am a Christian’
I’m not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible
But, God believes I am worth it.

“When I say… ‘I am a Christian’
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches
So I call upon His name.

“When I say… ‘I am a Christian’
I’m not holier than thou,
I’m just a simple sinner
Who received God’s good grace, somehow!”

Egyptian Chariot Wheels Discovered in the Red Sea!

Discovery_News_Paper_HeaderWritten by: Chuck Anderson of Discovery News

P6-RedSea1
Nuweiba Beach, Egypt

40 miles south of Eilat, Israel, on the western shore of the Gulf of Aqaba is a huge sandy beach and peninsula that researchers have now verified as the Red Sea crossing site where Moses and the people of Israel escaped the wrath of the Pharaoh of Egypt.

The site was first identified by a Biblical archeological explorer named Ron Wyatt after he flew over the area in a small private airplane in 1978. Wyatt reasoned that evidence should still exist at the Red Sea crossing site where God miraculously separated the waters and delivered His people from Egypt.

 Wyatt's first evidence was the discovery of a large stone column lying in the water. Wyatt's first evidence was the discovery of a large stone column lying in the water.

Wyatt’s first evidence was the discovery of a large stone column lying in the water.
Wyatt’s first evidence was the discovery of a large stone column lying in the water.

Later, on the eastern shore of the Red Sea, opposite Nuweiba Beach, Wyatt found a matching column with an inscription that could still be read. It was erected by King Solomon as a memorial to the Great God of Israel Who delivered His people from the armies of Egypt.

Wyatt also began to find evidence of Chariot wheels underwater. They had been preserved by coral that had attached themselves to the four-, six- and eight-spoked wheels which were typical of the wheels used in the 18th Dynasty. He recovered the hub of a wheel with the remains of eight spokes and gave this significant find to Nassif Mohammed Hassan, Director of Antiquities in Cairo. Mr. Hassan immediately identified the artifact as a chariot wheel dating 3500 years ago during the 18th Dynasty, the only time the ancient Egyptians used an eight spoked wheel.

Repeated dives by Wyatt and his two sons, over a stretch of nearly two miles, revealed that chariot parts literally littered the area.

It is estimated that Pharaoh’s army of nearly 250,000 soldiers was totally destroyed while Moses and his unarmed Hebrew nation were miraculously delivered as recorded in the Bible.

“And the waters returned and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came to the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the seashore.”              Exodus 14:28-30

One of the four-spoked chariot wheels was covered with gold. It was too fragile to try to remove but the photo clearly shows the circular rim of the ancient wheel, spokes and even the hub!

The Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt through the Red Sea occurred at Nuweiba Beach, 40 miles south of Eilat, Israel.
