DINOSAURS & NIMROD

.

.

.

.

.

So, just where did the dinosaurs come from?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Louisae.jpg

.

Were they the product of evolution?

.

Were they the ancestors of modern-day reptiles?

.

And just where did they go? Did they become extinct when a giant asteroid hit earth and completely wiped out all dinosaurs?

.

And if that asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs, why didn’t it wipe out all the other animals too?

ANIMALS GOING EXTINCT TODAY, TOO!

.

Well, let’s just use a little logic. Just how do species become extinct today?

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Oxford_Dodo_display.jpg

After all, there are species which have become extinct in modern times.

.

And our government is designating more and more species as being “endangered species” every day!

.

This Dodo bird shown to the right, became extinct because it was hunted, by men and by predator animals.

.

So why is it such a mystery to understand just how many ancient animal species became extinct?

PALUXY RIVER BED DINOSAUR TRACKS

.

In Texas is an active river, the Paluxy River, in which dinosaur tracks line the river bed. 

.

But the big question is, why does an active river have dinosaur tracks?

.

After all, if these animals went extinct 65 million years ago, as we are told, then simple logic would determine that the Paluxy River would have been eradicated millions upon millions of years ago!

BIBLE SPEAKS OF “GIANTS” IN THOSE DAYS

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Paluxy_River.jpg

.

No, this river is a testament to the Bible account, which says… “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

.

Now, the Bible merely says “Now there were giants in the earth in those days” genesis 6:4. But it doesn’t specify whether those giants were people or animals, or both. It only says “giants”. And then, after establishing that fact, that there were giants, it then speaks of giant people intermarrying with God’s people.

.

And when it says “in those days”, it is speaking about the days prior to the Great Flood of Noah’s day.

NOAH’S ARK

.

So just what happened to them?

.

Did they get destroyed in the flood?

.

Did that great deluge completely wipe them out?

Or did they board the Ark, and sail to the other side of the flood?

.

Well, all the well-preserved fossils indicate that these titans were mostly buried in the mud that resulted from the receding flood waters.

.

But skeptics scoff at that idea, laughingly saying that the Ark could never hold two of each kind of these great beasts! But just look at these dinosaur eggs in the photo below! They are very small.

.

And Creation scientists remind us, that many baby dinosaurs were about the size of a dog. So Noah’s Ark could easily have held very young dinosaurs.

COMMON SENSE LOGIC…

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Segnosaurus_nest_2.jpg

.

And so the question that remains, was God intelligent enough to know how to bring baby dinosaurs into the Ark?

.

Obviously, God is infinite in wisdom and understanding!

.

And so, using a little logic, one might speculate that God probably directed mostly baby animals into the Ark, including baby reptiles, such as dinosaurs, which, creationists tell us, were about the size of dogs.

NIMROD 

.

But what happened to the various species of animals which went extinct after the flood? Does the Bible give any clues to this mystery?http://www.creationism.org/images/DoreBibleIllus/aGen1106Dore_TheConfusionOfTongues.jpg

.

The Bible speaks in its usual concise manner concerning this…

.

Listen… “And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” Genesis 10:8, 9

.

In this little passage is revealed what probably happened to many of the animals that then existed after the flood.

.

You see, Nimrod was a very famous hunter, back in the days after the flood.

.

AND OTHER MIGHTY HUNTERS

.

Not only does it mention Nimrod, the mighty hunter, but it also says the words… “He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, http://www.creationism.org/images/DoreBibleIllus/aGen1106Dore_TheConfusionOfTongues.jpgEven as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” Genesis 10:9

.

And so, God has embedded a historical truth, within this passage. There were other hunters in those days after the flood, who were mighty, “even as Nimrod”!

.

And so, again, common sense dictates that since there were other great and mighty hunters in those days, “even as Nimrod”, that many of the species of animals were the targets of those great and mighty hunters.

SATAN AND HIS MASTER-PLAN

.

Now if Nimrod was an adulated individual, and there were many others like him, it is not hard to deduce that Satan was not far from all this.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

And Satan, having an I.Q. far beyond any mortal, had already designed a blueprint for his future deceptions against Mankind, long ago, even in the days of Eden.

.

And so, wouldn’t it be to his advantage to exterminate those few remaining “dinosaurs” after the flood? 

.

And so, it is a very real possibility that Satan was the master-orchestrator of this entire business of “prehistoric dinosaurs”, and making them extinct, by those mighty hunters in those days.

JUST A PLAUSIBLE SCENARIO

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpg

.

And so, just a little simple deduction from the Bible account of those days, gives us enough information to put “2 + 2 together”, and surmise just what happened to the reptile species, living in those days.

.

Well, there’s probably more to all these pre-flood and post-flood mysteries.

.

But herein was presented a plausible scenario, based on the Bible, that makes a great deal of common sense.

.

.

.

.

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Give me enough understanding of what the Bible says concerning all these things, not only for my own peace of mind, but that I may direct others to the Bible, to answer their own doubts…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

FIRST APPEARS IN MID-SUMMER

.

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Revelation 12 Woman in Travail (not pictured in this chart).

.

The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. There are two dimmer stars (#’s 1 & 2) which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.

.

THE ZODIAC NAMES

It is not the purpose, nor the desire of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity or recognition to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But unfortunately, the common names of many constellations (such as Scorpio or Sagittarius, etc.), must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.
