TITLE: THE NIGHT IS FAR SPENT
ARTICLE: VOLUME ONE
“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.” Romans 13:12.
If an individual truly loves someone, they will desire not to want to hurt them. This love can only be sincere by individuals willing to speak the truth to build a lasting friendship. If such individuals are eager, to tell the truth, it is possible to desire a genuine friendship with such a company. Therefore, let’s talk about truth and not deceit, as this article seeks friendship with those who desperately need truth.
I pray that whoever is reading this article (Article One) is willing to consider the contexts herein. This article will inform readers of one purpose. That purpose is to provide ABSOLUTE TRUTH. The truth one needs is to be given is the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ. The day is at hand; many will perish, simply because “THEY” who refused to listen with open ears will spend an eternity in God’s judgment for refusing to submit to God’s teachings, which He gave to humanity generations ago. The Holy Scriptures, the Bible, is indeed the ABSOLUTE TRUTH provided to humanity to understand how the beginning started (Genesis) and how humankind’s ending will play out in the final days (Revelation).
Earth, Space, Reproductive Systems,
Man’s Increased Knowledge, & A Tidbit Of Thought
Many so-called modern-day skeptics of Christianity claim to have a so-called vast knowledge of how life’s origins started. These same skeptics refuse even to consider the provable historical and scientific evidence fo the Divine Word of God. These skeptics have been around since the fall of humanity; as always, these skeptics never change; therefore, nothing is new under the sun, and this article hopes to prove the skeptics wrong. In fact, since the creation of the world, after the fall of God’s created perfect order of humanity, our species has been trying to overturn the realization that this real eternal Deity exists. From ancient pagan humankind made gods, to now the belief in modern-day evolution, it is all carefully crafted and deceitfully designed to get people to refuse to accept the One True Holy Eternal Almighty God. However, this Deity will indeed reveal himself to these skeptics, and these people will pay the eternal price for refusing to submit to His Godhead.
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” Romans 1:20-21.
The truth of the matter is and has always been since humanity’s fall of humankind is that we will not accept God’s law. Instead, humans, by their fallen nature, has declared war against their Creator. This Declaration of War is approximately 6,000 plus years. Yes, that is correct; the earth is not billions of years, but only about 6,000 plus years. The fall of man started once Adam and Eve committed the first recorded sin against God in Eden’s garden. “But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 2:17. This beginning sin started this war against God and His created order. That’s why humankind in our modern-day is continuing this unjust horrific Declaration of War against the Eternal God.
How long will the war continue? & will we have peace after this war? These are serious questions that need answering if we are to concede to the possibility that the Holy Bible is true. Before we begin to answer these questions, let’s put the Holy Bible on trial for the skeptics who refuse to believe in the Divine.
EVIDENCE OF PROOF OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
Evidence Submitted About Space & Earth
Stars Sing to the Almighty
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has discovered that stars give off a musical tone. This discovery is astonishing. Even more shocking is that the Holy Bible’s scriptures written thousands of years before modern technology advancements proclaimed this truth by God’s Divine proclamation. “When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” Job 38:7. “Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.” Psalm 148:3.
Earth Hangs on Nothing
What if you were to discover that the Holy Bible informed humankind that the earth sat upon nothing? Various cultures believed that the world sat on animals during ancient times, like elephants, turtles, etc.; this is what previous generations considered, yet we have discovered that earth hangs in space upon absolutely nothing in our modern age. “He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” Job 26:7. The Holy Scriptures provided this undeniable proof in Its Texts thousands of years prior, now provable since we can see the earth with high-tech advanced telescopes and pictures of satellite imagery.
Air has Weight
The Book of Job teaches that Air has Weight. Not until the 17th century that Galileo discovered that our atmosphere has value. Aerodynamics proves this modern-day scientific finding. The Weight of our winds sustains the necessary functions of our planet atmosphere. “To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.” Job 28:25.

Job 38:16 teaches that the ocean floors have springs; how did the writer know about springs in the deep oceans? Wouldn’t this have once again been an impossibility for the Bible writer to teach this? Since up until modern technological advancements, ancient civilizations had no way to verify this Divine teaching of scriptures. Biblical verse –“Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?”

Light Needed for Wind
The Book of Job even proves the Holy Scriptures Divine Writings when it illustrates that the light provided to our planet creates wind. Not until mankind’s modernization has this discovery been confirmed. Scientific research has discovered that the heat from our sun heats the earth surfaces. This reaction causes the hot air to rise and cooler Air to fall under our weather systems’ created order. Thus wind can exist because of the sunlight. “By the way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?” Job 38:24.
Evidence Submitted about Life Continuing Life
Evolutionist teaches us that humans and animals have evolved from lower mechanisms to more complex systems. This notion comes from the idea of complete chaos because evolution has a non-conscionable created function. Instead, this function only happens by allowing a vast amount of time, millions, and billions of years to occur for successful mutations to thrive eventually because most mutational steps are harmful mutations. The problem scientists have in verifying when successful useful (good) mutations occur within the complexity of its transformations is seeing this happen in the wild. Because science is currently unable to verify this process in the wild due to the evolutionary system taking millions upon millions of years; therefore, isn’t the belief in gradual transition merely faith-based? And not an actual scientific provable fact?
The Holy Scriptures, however, teach the opposite view. The Bible informs us that we live under a created order, not a system of evolved chaos. Evolution has no actual direct leading path as no consciousness exists in the functions of change; therefore, creationists’ belief seems to make more sense, since an Eternal Almighty God would have created all living functions with meaningful purpose. This belief illustrates a directing blueprint and not a gradual evolutionary chaotic blueprint. The creationist blueprint explains why all living animals reproduce after they’re kind of genetic code. Example: Even if humankind has vast similarities with Apes, why can we not breed with other similar species like Apes? Put, because our Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) genetic coded function as humans are not compatible with non-humankind species. Felines breed with felines, and canines birth with other canines. Humans are no exception. The female’s species humans’ reproductive systems with man’s seed are the only DNA systems compatible with continuing human life. We see this all around us. All animals produce with their type of DNA coded species.
Biblical References – Genesis 1:11-12, 21, 24-25
“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” (11-12).
“And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that is was good.” (21).
“And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. “And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” (24-25).
Humanity is also no exception from this created order. The Bible even tells us this at the beginning of God’s creation, that societies, first historical ancient existence, teach us that humans should multiply with other humans in childbirth.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the Air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the Air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26-28.
You see, basic elementary-level biology proves the scriptures to be true because it proves beyond any reasonable scientific method that living functions from grass, plants, animals, and even humans, produce a function-able created order. These various DNA functions of all life on earth must be carefully crafted in a purposefully “designed” order that can only be illustrated by God’s workable craftsmanship instead of a system of evolutionary chaos.
Evidence Submitted about Humanity Knowledge
Throughout the Holy Scriptures, God gifts humankind with the capability to increase our brain functions; thus, humans can advance themselves with growing knowledge. This never-ending adaptability of understanding explains our expansion of none-cease-able-knowledge. That is why this explains how humankind is the most advanced living organism on earth. “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4.
Acknowledging this also explains why the Night is Far Spent. A loving God, though granted such knowledge to man, we as humans have indeed proven ourselves unworthy of God’s gift of higher-knowledge. Put, because the world’s population abuses such knowledge with evil continually. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9. Daniel 12:4 illustrated above mentioned how knowledge shall increase rapidly during the end of days. Although some of humanity’s increased ability has blessed humankind, like global travels (the modernization of the automobile, trains, boats, planes, and now the beginning stages of space travel), God has provided this blessing to us. The Book of Daniel grants its audience an undeniable Seal of Authenticity, proving the Scriptures to be the Divine Writings from God, as it claims “to and fro.” You see, Dear Reader, if one looks at the overwhelming, undeniable burden of proof relating to scriptural doctrine, then how did ancient writers predict with such an accurate account on how modern-day societies would advance in knowledge?
Tidbit of Extra-Biblical Evidence Snakes with Legs
Researchers from the University of Portsmouth have discovered a fossil of snake that had four legs, helping to reveal how snakes made the transition from lizards to serpents. It is the first known fossil of a four-legged snake, and the team – led by Dr. Dave Martill from the University of Portsmouth – says that this discovery could help scientists to understand how snakes lost their legs (Source Copied from scitechdaily.com website).
The Holy Bible, in the first book of Genesis, already provided this truth before this University discovery. Sorry, Dr. Dave Martill, you are thousands of years behind in this finding. God already foretold to humankind that the serpent in the garden would slither on its belly.
“And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:” Genesis 3:14.
The above mentioned scriptural verse illustrates that God cursed the serpent. For his rebellion, God punished the serpent by forcing the snake to slither on its belly as a punishment for tricking Adam and Eve to fall under condemnation with God.
