When Christ’s appointed time came that He was to be offered up as the sin-offering, many of the children of Israel saw Him come through the gates of Jerusalem upon a donkey, fulfilling the words of the prophet Zechariah. The people then began to fulfill the point of prophecy of Zechariah, where he said “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!” (Zech. 9:9), saying: “Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.”
However, we are told that some did not rejoice, and Christ’s profound response.
“And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.” (Luke 19:38-40)
When prophecy is about to fulfill in dramatic and mighty ways, if the people of God would at this time hold their peace, the rocks would cry out! We know “that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts…For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished…” (2 Peter 3:5-6)
The scoffers deny that God created all things by His Word. That He caused the earth to perish in the flood. They deny the literal six-day creation account, with the seventh-day Sabbath. And Peter continues, saying: “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” The same word which they deny the account of the flood happening will soon bring forth a fiery judgment to the wicked. Yet in these last days, the Lord has few men proclaiming judgment is at the gates. He has the rocks crying out to testify against man of the judgments which are past, that He might persuade them of what is yet to come.
ARCHAEOLOGY- THE ROCKS CRYING OUT- THE FLOOD
The Bible tells of of the judgment of the flood, saying: “And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.” (Genesis 6:17)
Multitudes doubt the Biblical record for the worldwide flood, but we have ample evidences to believe. Take for example the fossil record. We’re told that the flood reached above the heights of the mountains over the face of the whole earth (Gen. 7:19-20). It should come as no surprise to us then that we find marine fossils on the peaks of the tallest mountains, and within the rock layers of them.
For example, we find we find marine fossils in most of the rock layers in Grand Canyon, such as brachiopods (a clam-like organism), corals, bryozoans (lace corals), crinoids (sea lilies), bivalves (types of clams), gastropods (marine snails), trilobites, cephalopods, and even fish teeth. This even includes the topmost layer in the sequence, the Kaibab Limestone exposed at the rim of the canyon, which today is approximately 7,000–8,000 feet (2,130–2,440 m) above sea level. Those don’t just swim up into the highest rock layers of the Grand Canyon!
Marine fossils are also found high in the Himalayas, the world’s tallest mountain range, reaching up to 29,029 feet (8,848 m) above sea level. For example, fossil ammonites (coiled marine cephalopods) are found in limestone beds in the Himalayas of Nepal.
Another witness we could consider is the great sedimentary layers carved out by the flood. They form from deposits that accumulate on the Earth’s surface. Sedimentary rocks often have distinctive layering or bedding. For example, you may look at the horizontal layers carved out in this canyon:
Phys.org, a science website, made the following admission by a recent discovery of Michael Lamb, a geologist and professor of the University of Minnosota: ”
“Our traditional view of deep river canyons, such as the Grand Canyon, is that they are carved slowly, as the regular flow and occasionally moderate rushing of rivers erodes rock over periods of millions of years.
Such is not always the case, however. “We know that some big canyons have been cut by large catastrophic flood events during Earth’s history,” Lamb says.”
The massive erosion witnessed in the rock layers in numerous canyons around the world testify to a worldwide flood. Long, drawn out, slow-periods of erosion do not carve out high horizontal sedimentary layers, and descending.
THE MYSTERY OF EASTER ISLAND
There are various stories and ideas regarding the heads of Easter Island, called moai. These ancient monuments of idolatry are presumed to have belonged to a small tribe of people called the Rapa Nui in the 1700’s. However, these great idols were buried when the people of Easter Island were discovered. Only recently has it been discovered that these monumental heads of the Island have whole bodies, and are buried deep underground and were buried.There is also a fossilized tree that remains in the region exclusively to Easter Island, which is now extinct. Some scientists claim the fossils came from a volcanic eruption, while others say the Easter Island heads were buried by gradual land shifts. However, when examined closely, it would be impossible to see these buried as they are, eroded, worn, and containing sediments over some of them. These massive statues are scattered and thrown about, some are covered less, and others more. Most striking is the one moai was found preserved underwater, testifying that these idols belonged to a pre-flood world.
All around the world, from France, to Japan, to India, and abroad, we find evidences of man-made city structures lying uninhabited under the sea.
For example, in India, you find the ancient city of Dwarka. The city itself, according to geological “experts” was submerged many thousands of years ago. Mainstream historians are of that the fact that Indian civilization goes back only to 4000 – 5000 years, about the time of the scattering of the Tower of Babel.
Another discovery, beneath a lake at Andes Mountains, Peru, at an elevation of 12000 feet, lies the dark waters of the Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable body of water in the world. The lost city of Wanaku was maintained by Peruvians for many centuries. In the year 2000, an Italian team of doctors, divers and archeologists launched an underwater investigation of the lake. Sunk below 100 ft. of water the team uncovered traces of paved road, a stone terrace, a wall nearly half a mile long, and submerged temple. The most impressive thing about the underwater cities is that they are continually being discovered at varying depths that are in many cases unexplainable.
LIVING DINOSAUR TISSUE
One of the most compelling evidences is, as previously mentioned, the widespread fossil record. Underground, we find the vast amounts of forest-graveyards that are buried underground, which create fossil fuels. Not only fossilized forests however, but many dinosaur graveyards also. Some fossilized footprints have accompanying them preserved human feet, showing their co-existence, but an even more interesting discovery has been made regarding the dinosaur fossils!
It has been supposed by evolutionists that the earth is billions of years old, and that the dinosaurs were somehow, someway destroyed by some catastrophic event. We see preserved frozen woolly mammoths submerged in ice. But all these events may easily be proven by a flood burying the dinosaurs. Now evidence has been found proving the young age of extinction for the dinosaurs! Paleontologist Mary Schweitzer, in 2005, had placed dinosaur bone into weak acid, discovering preserved soft tissue of the dinosaurs in the bones! This research has been repeated by other scientists, and has been discovered in almost every other dinosaur fossil. This soft tissue from the dinosaur proves that the earth cannot be millions of years old! This discovery is one of the most astounding of the century.
The flood of waters over all the face of the earth did happen. The judgment of God’s restraining Spirit withdrawn, leaving man to his own devices, the rebellion of man to the Word of God, which made the worlds, caused the world to be undone. God brought a flood of waters upon the earth; will not the same word that is restraining the fiery instruments of heaven and earth be withdrawn in like manner? Yet in our next article, we will turn the chapter again and see even more striking remnants of judgment giving crying out with a loud cry.
In part II, we will examine the rocks crying out for the Exodus account.
