It’s finally here, beloved brethren, I have finally found an excuse to gush over Gods creative design of the heart and lungs! As you’ll remember if you’ve been reading this series every Monday, we made it to the second trimester of pregnancy last week in our review of Gods amazing work within the miracle of life. We’re now in month 5, which is when the babies organs begin to mature. Today we’re going to primarily discuss the heart and lungs.
I have some technical clips for you to stress the intricacies of Gods design. You’re not in school, beloved, don’t worry about all the terms. These clips are computer models, and they’re very well done. They do an excellent job of showing what’s happening on a cellular level as well as on a full scale. I promise you’ll be blessed…here is the first one on the lungs…
During the second trimester, when the babies lungs are developing, the baby will begin taking practice breaths. It’s amazing to recall that this is all happening within the baby because of God’s sovereign will. The miracle of human life can not be explained by evolutionary scientists because they’re starting with a false assumption. Can we have evolved from single-celled organisms into the intricate creature you’ve seen forming over these past view weeks in this series? Statistically, no. In fact, statistically, the universe forming out of nothing is impossible, nothing we see should be happening, much less the beautiful creation of a human being in the womb.
An interesting, recent, discovery involving the lungs has been the realization that blood forms within them. Previously it was thought blood formed in the bones, now we know that nearly half the blood in the body forms in the lungs. God’s creation is so complex that we’re still learning all the designs. The next video clip is on the heart, it doesn’t go into as much detail as the lung video but it does show the electricity which is what I wanted to discuss in regards to the heart.
The little heart forming in the baby has been taking practice beats from the moment it began forming. When the muscle cells inside the babies heart begin to contract it sets off a chain reaction, which continues until the brain develops enough to start controlling the contractions. What starts the electrical impulse? Where does the information for a heart to beat come from? The DNA has all the information our bodies need to form from the beginning of conception. Where there is information, there is an intelligent writer, where there is design, there is an intelligent designer.
Why is the sinful man without excuse on judgment day? Because we’re made in God’s image, and the very evidence of His being is found within us. Our generation has more knowledge of God design than any before us, and what do they all stand and say? “The intelligent designer was an alien, they came and seeded this planet with life.” Or “We’re all Martians, we came from bacteria on Mars.” Wow. Dear ones, have you ever been told that we believe in pie in the sky? Or fairy tales? I certainly have…and yet the person who knows the truth of God yet suppresses it in unrighteousness comes up with some of the most far-fetched ideas of how life began. Why are they more willing to believe in aliens than in God? Because they are not going to be held accountable to aliens, or bacteria from Mars. The question naturally has to be asked though, if we came from aliens or bacteria who created them? Who ‘seeded’ their planet?
Beloved friends, God is the ultimate judge and creator, we are His creation and He will hold us accountable. He has given us life, and then, through His Son Jesus Christ, eternal life. The one who is able to begin a heartbeat, breathe in the lungs, is worthy of all honor and glory, and praise! So be good Berean’s, dear brethren, and study to show yourselves approved.
