Which came first – the chicken or the egg?
I was listening to the news the other day and the announcer was commenting on a bit of news that had come across “the wire.” After all of these years, scientist have discovered, definitively, which came first – the chicken or the egg. She reported that through testing, scientist discovered that a single protein called ovocledin-17 was needed to first form the hard outer shell that is needed to contain the raw egg. The existence of this protein, they say, is only possible when it is first supplied by the chicken. Therefore, in the “natural scheme of things,” the chicken (or any other bird or animal) had to have existed prior to the “first” egg having been laid.
At the end of the “news report,” the woman, trying to look surprised, closed by saying, “Who knew?”
Well, God Knew!!! This knowledge has been passed down through generations almost since the beginning of time! On the fourth day of God Creating all that we know today as “our world and surrounding universe,” He began creating the birds, fish and animals. He didn’t create fetus’ of each type of animal, eggs for all the birds and fish and then just leave them around so that, somehow, they would be born or hatched into the first living thing of each species. Needless to say, man and woman weren’t created by the first two sperm swimming around in some unknown environment so that, somehow, they could enter two eggs that just happen to be hanging out nearby. Given this version of reality, through some sort of genetic raffle, both a man and woman would have been produced without a womb and motherly nourishment. Not only did they not have some “container” to form and be nourished in, but they had to, again with chance being on their side, be “born” geographically near each other and in the same time proximity for future procreation to have been able to take place before they “died.” Wait! It gets better, who cared for them and fed them as babies – were they raised by wolves – given wolves were already in existence in their vicinity?
The “evolution theory” of many in this world, is not just unlikely – it is blantantly impossible! Creation by God is the only valid and rational answer to the question of “the chicken or the egg” question and all of its ramifications (Genesis 1:20-22).
This being reality, there is not a great deal more to be said. However, if man spent more time trying to get back to the “perfection” of the Garden of Eden and less time trying to “create” their own version of their reality; the hate, war and general distrust within this world would soon become non-existant. God made us. God loves us. God wants us to return to Him.
Too often, many of us live a life based in a chosen reality of “self,” “here,” and “now.” Others of us have chosen to live an eternal reality of “spirit,”there,” and then. If the reality you’ve selected for yourself and your loved ones seems a little “fuzzy” with an uncertain future, please consider the Reality of God.
If you can bring yourself to even consider this alternative reality of living, then you and others around you can have the true reality of eternity. Ask our Lord Jesus, to become your Eternal Savior. Tell Him that you recognize the “self,” “here,” and “now” lifestyle you’ve lived up until now. Ask His forgiveness for your sins and ask Him to Sanctify your soul with The Holy Spirit of our Heavenly Father, so that your eternity will be His Eternity!
Dear Jesus, I accept the wondrous Blessing of Your Salvation! I recognize and admit my sins for they are many. I eternally commit to You that I will turn away from my sinful life of the past and will humbly serve you in the future.
Please let God’s Holy Spirit enter my soul for now and evermore!
In Your Holy Name, Jesus, I pray!
