‘Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, “Here we are!”?’ Job 38:35 NKJV
The Bible predicted modern telecommunications. Are you thinking, ‘Yeah, right?!’ Consider this verse: ‘Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, “Here we are!”?’ Fifteen centuries before Christ, in the book of Job, God said light (electromagnetic radiation) could be sent, and manifest itself in speech. And did you know that all electromagnetic radiation—from radio waves to X-rays―travels at the speed of light (about 300,000 km per second)? That’s seven times around the world in a second and it’s what gives us instant wireless communication with someone on the other side of the planet. The fact that light can be sent and translated into speech wasn’t discovered by science until 1864—nearly 3,300 years later after Job—when British scientist James Clerk Maxwell suggested that electricity and light waves were two forms of the same thing.
Samuel Morse, who invented the first telegraph and forever changed the world of communication, was a Bible-believing Christian. A few years before he died, he said, ‘The nearer I approach the end of my pilgrimage, the clearer is the evidence of the divine origin of the Bible. The grandeur and sublimity of God’s remedy for fallen man are more appreciated, and the future is illuminated with hope and joy.’ In life you’ll meet many doubters and God loves them. In fact, Jesus made a special appearance after His resurrection just to resolve the doubts of one of His own apostles: Thomas. And He still does that today! So, get acquainted with your Bible and, if you’ve got questions, look deeper. And have the assurance that every sincere, questioning heart knows true science never disproves the Bible.
