How well do you know Chinese?

One of the primary characteristics which separates human behavior from animals is the ability to transfer abstract concepts to another human via written language. The Bible teaches that this ability came directly from a creator, God, and states that the vastly different languages of the world are a result of the confusion of one original language during an event known as the tower of Babel. Our English word babble (meaning gibberish, a confusion of noises or voices) has it roots in this event. If this event was a factual, historical happening, there would be clues in ancient writing for such important events such as the creation of man, the fall of man, the existence of a creator (God) and a deceiver (Satan), the world wide flood, and the dispersion of man (at the tower of Babel).

Knowledge of all of these events can be found not just in the Bible but through the ancient writing of people throughout the world. One of the more interesting clues can be found within the very characters of the ancient Chinese letter symbols. China today is dominated by Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism but about 2000 years before the appearance of any of these religious beliefs the ancient Chinese served a single creator god known as "Shang Ti".

Ancient Chinese writing consisted of a series of word pictures or pictographs, which combined simpler features to express an idea or concept.

The symbol for Shang Ti (God) is a combination of the symbol for emperor and the symbol for heaven (or above).

Thus, the original God worshiped by the Chinese was a single heavenly emperor (not a plurality of many gods).

The Bible describes the creation of man as God having formed him from the dust of the ground and breathed into him the breath of life. The Chinese symbol for create is a combination of person (or breath), dust, walking, and alive.

Thus, to create is to bring a person from dust to life and have it walk.

The Bible describes the devil as the great deceiver who first tempted mankind during a private conversation among the trees of the Garden of Eden. The Chinese symbol for Devil is a combination of alive, man, garden, and secret {i.e. something alive tells man a secret in a garden}. Even more revealing is the symbol for tempter. This symbol adds devil to trees and cover.

Thus, the great tempter is a devil telling man a secret under trees.

The Bible describes a world wide flood catastrophe in which all human life with the exception of eight individuals on a floating vessel were destroyed. The Chinese symbol for boat is vessel, eight, and people.

Thus, a boat is eight people onboard of a vessel!

The Bible describes that man was told to spread out over the earth after the worldwide flood yet he rebelled and built a tower to his own glory. God ended this rebellion by confusing man's languages so that they set out and journeyed across the globe in different language groups. Interestingly the Chinese chose to use the identical symbol for confusion and rebellion...a combination of tongue and right leg (or journey).

Thus, to confuse is to set out on a journey with a new tongue (or language).

The Chinese language predates the Hebrew of the Old Testament by 700-1700 years, and yet it contains a true and accurate record of events from the book of Genesis. Isn't God wonderful to preserve such a record for us?

Geneology of Man to Noah's sons

This chart shows a time line from Adam and Eve to Noah and his sons it was created by Gerry McGovern from Calvary Chapel Hammonton.

Some interesting notes, Adam was alive for seven generations before his death which means he was able to pass down what he knew from being with God personally. He was alive to teach his children all that he knew and how wonderful this world once was before sin and death. Talk about a witness? Could you imagine Adam's "In my day stories..."? I bet they were pretty remarkable! In my day there was no pain, tears, or hunger! We had all the food you could eat it was just falling from the trees! I will never forgive my wife for what she made me do! Now look at the land! We actually have to work now, to make things grow! We had it made, back in the day! :)

Enoch who is a prophet, had a very good relationship with God, he is the only person I know of, that was taken up or raptured by God. He may of wrote a book but it was not included in the Bible. Some believe this book was not inspired by God and it can not be properly cross referenced with the other books this is why it was left out. The Nephilim, giants, or sons of God and the evil thoughts of man saddened God because he knew what he had to do.

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.And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart. [Genesis 6: 4-6 KJV]

His son Methuselah, was the oldest living person to live on earth he was 969 years old, who's name meant "when he dies/died, it will be sent/has been sent" foretelling of the coming judgment upon the earth. When Methuselah died, in that same year the flood came to baptise and cleanse the earth from it's wickedness. Some think God with held judgment on humans for a very long time to show how patient he is. It took Noah 100 years to build the Ark. Sadly, only eight humans on earth feared or respected the Lord, only Noah and his family would survive. There are many different accounts of the flood but I believe without a doubt this is the correct one. I also believe that the whole world was flooded because if it wasn't. Why build a giant ship for a hundred years and gather two of every animal of the earth? Wouldn't fleeing to the mountains be easier?

Hope you guys enjoyed this little bit of ancient history! May the Lord shine his face upon you and yours!

Easter and it's Meaning

Easter is the most significant observation in the Christian liturgical year.

In English, "Easter" is derived from the name of an ancient Pagan Goddess Eostre.

In Hebrew: פסח; transliterated as pesach or pesah". In most of the remaining languages in countries with a Christian heritage, the name for Easter is derived from "Pesach." the name for Passover. The children of God (Israelites) were enslaved by the Egyptians and were tired of being mistreated. They started to cry out to the Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; he hears their call and appoints Moses to lead them. This was around the year 1446 B.C.

"Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats" [Exodus 12:5 KJV]

"And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it." [Exodus 12:7 KJV]

"And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt." [Exodus 12:13 KJV]

Above is what God told Moses to tell the Isrealites to do to protect themselves from the tenth plague. Passover is when the children of God (Israelites) were commanded by God to sacrifice a perfect lamb(no defects), than to put it's blood on the posts around the door of their houses so that the angel of death would pass over them, but those that did not do this, allowed God to take the first born son of the household. This would make pharaoh finally let the Israelites start their exodus out of Egypt.

"The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." [John 1:29 KJV]

John the baptist who is a prophet of God sees Jesus and realizes who he is immediately. The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world! This is around the year 26 A.D.

And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived
. [Numbers 21:9 KJV]

"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." [John 3:14-17 KJV]

This is when Nicodemus, who was a man of the Pharisees and a ruler of the Jews who was talking to Jesus. Jesus was explaining what had to be done to redeem the world from sin. He was explaining that just like the brass serpent that Moses used to save the Isrealites (who have repented) from the poisonous snakes in the wilderness; that he himself would have to be lifted up on a tree to save those who have repented and accepted Jesus as their Lord and savior. This story about Moses, by the way, is the source of the medical symbol of a snake on a pole.

"In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof." [Exodus 12:46 KJV]

"The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced."[John 19:31-37 KJV]

And just like the animals sacrificed during the passover the Israelites were not permitted to break any of its bones, just like the Lamb of God who was dead before the Roman soldiers could break his legs. Jesus the Christ was that perfect sacrifice who had never sinned and was put on a tree so that those who believed in him shall not die but have life eternal!

"Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said." [Matthew 28: 5-6]

This took all most 1500 years for these prophecies to come to pass, it just goes to show that the Bible is God's word and it confirms itself. Jesus conquered death and opened the way to the Father. If you accept Jesus as your Lord and savior and cover yourself in his blood, death will passover you as well! Hallelujah, glory to the Lamb of God!

Have a Happy Easter all, peace be with you and yours!
