The Most Efficient Machine In The Universe
11/7/2016

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools… Romans 1:20-22 (NKJV)

I have this theory about Jesus coming back; it goes like this. I believe Jesus will come back right after He allows mankind to scientifically prove intelligent design (God). And I believe archeologists will parallel these scientific discoveries by finding more and more physical evidence proving biblical history to be true. The result? Mankind — including those who profess to be atheist — will be without excuse when it comes to being able to believe.

Back when Charles Darwin made his renowned theory of evolution, scientist had limits in their capabilities. And as such, they could not look within the human cell. The result is they felt it was nothing more than a blob of protoplasm. The funny thing is, science has evolved, and they now have this capability of looking into the cell. One scientist said, going into the cell is like going into an automobile factory with a large number of machines. And all the parts have to fit together in a very specific ways to do their jobs. And if things go wrong, then the cell is in big trouble. 

Now that’s just one cell — the human body is made up of roughly 100 trillion individual cells, all doing their specific job. I think this is a beautiful picture of the church as well –— many members, yet one body.

For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, Romans 12:4 (NKJV)

Science has also discovered each cell is amazingly complex and is made up with many different types of molecular machinery. That’s right, intelligently designed micro machines. One such machine within the cell is called a bacterial flagellum. It is this little torpedo shaped tube with a little tail at the end of it acting as the impeller. It is made up of approximately 40 parts, including a rotary motor, a stator, a propeller, a driveshaft, u-joints and impeller — it has two gears, forward and reverse, and is water-cooled. Some of these motors can turn up to 100,000 RPM’s. Howard Berg of the Department of Molecular & Cellular Biology, Harvard University has labeled it, “The most efficient machine in the universe.”

There is something else very interesting to note here; these bacterial flagellum motors could not operate or do what they were created to do if they were to be missing just one of their parts. In other words, they were designed to work together to achieve their purpose. It’s kind of like a mousetrap — it has five functioning pieces. Take one piece away and it no longer functions, nor could it do what it was designed to do. It’s known as irreducible complexity. Then here’s the cool part.

Charles Darwin offered a way to test his theory of evolution. In his book, “On The Origin of Species,” which was published on Nov. 24th 1859, and which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology, he himself stated, “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous successive slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.”

Well, here’s the proof. The basic cell found within life is the very biological system Darwin said didn’t exist. Science has discovered an amazingly complex organ that cannot be explained by Darwinism processes, but it can be fully explained by God. Our Lord is our amazing Creator (John 1:1-3), and He is not willing that any should perish (2 Pet. 3:9). And if it takes scientific discoveries to some to reveal Himself to them, then He will be faithful to give them their proof. 

STUDY QUESTION: According to Romans 1:20-22, what happens to those who really do know of God but choose to deny Him?

PERSONAL INVENTORY: Are you living in a way so others would see Christ in you?

PRACTICAL APPLICATION: Choose to let the light of Christ shine through your life, your choices, and your actions. 

MAKE THIS YOUR PRAYER TODAY: Father, thank You for Your amazing creations for us to share and to enjoy. Thank You for allowing mankind to discover You by reason and science. Open the eyes of those who have been blinded by the lies of the enemy. Help me to love those who are ignorant and be the example You have called me to be. In Jesus’ precious name, amen…

Be Blessed, Pastor Scott
