ARE YOU WALKING WITH GOD?
I don’t think many people realize how important and powerful this truth is in these lessons! The reason God put all these records of dates of how long people lived in the Bible is because the Lord wanted us to be able to see how old the world really is. The Lord knew that the devil was going to come out with his big lie of evolution. Countless billions of people including Christians have been mislead, and led astray by the lies of the devils teachings, that the earth is millions and billions of years old, when all they had to do was to look in the Bible and add the years up from Creation to find the truth. It is shocking to think of the trillions of dollars that have been spent propagating this lie by the school system and colleges and universities through out this country and has now effected the whole world, and it began in England. So thank God for the truth of his WORD, AMEN?
