Science Proves the Bible True – Part 4

All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again. Ecclesiastes 1:7

The Bible talks about the water cycle. ‘All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full; to the place from which the rivers come, there they return again.’ Every day the Mississippi River dumps approximately 420 billion gallons of water into the Gulf of Mexico. And when you think about the Thames, the Nile, and the Amazon, every day the same thing is happening in rivers all around the world. So, where does all that water go? The answer lies in the hydrologic cycle, which the Bible introduced almost three millennia ago. The wise King Solomon wrote, ‘If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth’ (Ecclesiastes 11:3). Amos the prophet said, “He…calls the waters of the sea, and pours them out on the face of the earth” (Amos 9:6). And Job’s friend Elihu said, ‘Behold, God is great…He draws up drops of water, which distil as rain from the mist, which the clouds drop down and pour abundantly on man’ (Job 36:26-28). The idea of a complete water cycle was not fully understood by science until the seventeenth century. Yet more than two thousand years prior to the discoveries of brilliant minds like Pierre Perrault, Edme Mariotte, Edmond Halley, and others, the Bible clearly explained the water cycle. The truth is, your Bible is inspired, reliable, and more up-to-date than tomorrow morning’s newspaper. Every newspaper has a correction column acknowledging its printed errors. Not the Bible! NO Fake news in the Bible either! You can trust it to guide you right in every area of your life.

Heavenly Father, I am thankful for Your Word that gives me truth – beyond my full comprehension. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

  1. God created science. Yet there has been a war between God & science and there are those who try to phase God from the picture. Disappointing that even Christians allow science to become their god. Science is good when it follows God’s Design, but can be very bad as we see in stem cell research that uses aborted fetal parts, genetically engineered foods, and climate change. Many feel that all science is good when it is not and as Christians, we need to become better educated in order to have a discerning eye of what is good & bad. Thank you, Tim for your inspiring devotions!
