The Sun Stood Still.....

This message was sent to me more than once in the last few months, so I decide to share it here.


Subject:NASA & THE BIBLEFor all the scientists, and all the students who have a hard time convincing these people of the truth of the Bible, here's something that shows God's awesome power, and that He is still in control.

Did you know that the space program is busy proving that what has been called 'myth' in the Bible is true?

Harold Hill, President of the Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore , Maryland , and a consultant in the space program, relates the following.

'I think one of the most amazing things that God has done for us today, happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Maryland .

They were checking out where the positions of the sun, moon, and planets would be 100 years, and 1,000 years from now. We have to know this so we won't send up a satellite. and have it bump into something later on in its orbit.

We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite, and where the planets will be, so the whole thing will not bog down.

They ran the computer measurement back and forth over the centuries, and it came to a halt. The computer stopped, and put up a red signal, which meant that there was something wrong with either the information fed into it or with the results as compared to the standards.

They called in the service department to check it out.

They said, 'What's wrong?'

Well, they found there is a day missing in space in

elapsed time. They scratched their heads and tore their hair out, but there was no answer.

Finally, a Christian man on the team said, 'When I was in Sunday School, and they talked about the sun standing still.'

While they didn't believe him, they didn't have an answer either, so they said, 'Show us.'

He got a Bible and went to the book of Joshua, where they found a rather ridiculous statement, for any one with 'common sense.'

There they found the Lord saying to Joshua, 'Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy hand; there shall not a man of them stand before Thee.'

Joshua was concerned because he was surrounded by the enemy! And if darkness fell, they would overpower them. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun stand still! That's right . . . 'The sun stood still, and the moon stayed, and lasted not to go down about a whole day!' (Joshua 10:12-13, 約 書 亞 記 10:12-13 )

The astronauts and scientists said, There's the missing day! They checked the computers going back into the time it was written, and found it was close but not close enough. The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes, not a whole day.

They read the Bible, and there it was about (approximately) a day. These little words in the Bible are important, but they were still in trouble, because if you cannot account for 40 minutes, you'll still be in trouble 1000 years from now.

Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits. As the Christian employee thought about it, he also remembered that somewhere in the Bible it said the sun went BACKWARDS.

The scientists told him he was out of his mind, but they got out the Book, and read these words in 2 Kings that told of the following story:

Hezekiah, on his death bed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him that he was not going to die. Hezekiah asked for a sign as proof. Isaiah said 'Do you want the sun to go ahead 10 degrees?'

Hezekiah said, 'It is nothing for the sun to go ahead 10 degrees, but let the shadow return backward 10 degrees.' Isaiah spoke to the Lord, and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees BACKWARD! Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes!'

Twenty-three hours and 20 minutes in Joshua, plus 40 minutes in Second Kings, make the missing day in the universe!   Isn't it amazing?     References: Joshua 10:8 and 12,13 and 2 Kings 20:9-11.(列 王 紀 下 20:9-11 )


Foot note: the clock was a sundial, using the shadow cast by the sun to indicate time of the day,

Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 所 以 , 你 們 若 真 與 基 督
