Critics. There will always be critics.

Critics. There will always be critics.

_Don’t pay any attention to what the devil says, and what the critic says, and what the unbeliever says. Keep your eyes set on Calvary. God’s Word is not supposed to be learned like a newspaper story…. It’s not supposed to be tried to figure out. It’s to get down, look up to it, saying, "God, be merciful to me and give me faith to believe Your Word. I accept now the Blood of the Lord Jesus for my sins." Then it’ll look a lot different. It’ll make critics believe in Divine healing. It’ll make those without the Holy Spirit, never been borned again, knows nothing about God or the new birth, become a seeker of the Holy Ghost and not to be an argue. It’ll put a love in his heart when he looks through the Blood of Christ to the Word to say, "Yes, God. You died to make that Word real to me." It’ll change your whole attitude. It’ll make you a different person. –William Marrion Branham

_Was the sound uncertain Noah was listening to? No, sir. It was right. We had an antediluvian destruction, destroyed all the world, and God sent the water just the way He said. Why? It’s the Word of God said so. Science drowned and perished.

Look, the very thing that saved Noah, killed his critics. Did you know that? The very water… If there hadn’t have been no water, Noah couldn’t have been saved. The ark was the one that floated. So the very thing that floated the ark, drowned the critic.

And the very Holy Spirit today, that people are making fun of, It will save the Church and condemn the critic: the very same thing (See?), the very same thing. What saves the believer, condemns the unbeliever. That’s right. So, you see, have faith in God’s Word. That’s one thing you can stand on, and know it’s certain. What God says, it’s certain. Just believe it. – WMB

_You see, the Scripture is inspiration. You’ll never be able to know the Scripture just by setting down and reading It from a theological standpoint, from an educational standpoint; it never has worked. -WMB

Critics. There will always be critics.

Man and Horse Domestication

Genesis 47:17a "And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread [in exchange] for horses…" Bones can tell stories. An interesting story of man’s relationship with the horse is told by the fossilized teeth of ancient horses. You see, domesticated horses have a habit called crib biting – biting the rails in their corral. Wild horses don’t do this. Crib biting creates a specific pattern of wear. So, when scientists find horses’ teeth that have this pattern, they know that it comes from a domesticated horse.

At one time it was believed that horses were first domesticated – using inflated evolutionary years – about 8,000 years ago. But several instances of horse teeth with the crib biting wear pattern have now turned up in much more ancient sites. Man may have had a partnership with the horse for much longer than this. But we who believe the Bible are not surprised that the evolutionary description of man’s relationship with the horse must be revised.

In the book of Genesis we read that during the famine in Egypt when Joseph was administering Egypt’s grain, he exchanged grain for livestock, including horses. Bible critics have long said that the horse was unknown in Egypt at Joseph’s time – proof, they said, that the Bible is full of mistakes. But now we know that it was the critics of the Bible who were wrong. Man’s relationship with the horse is much, much older than most people ever thought.


Heavenly Father, I thank You that Your Word is faithful and trustworthy. Build and strengthen my faith through Your Word, and help me to be better able to tell others Your wonderful news of grace and forgiveness in Jesus Christ. Amen.
