ISAAC NEWTON AND THE JEWISH TEMPLE…(The Bible’s Impact on Scientific Discovery [July 20])


Do you take time to read God’s Word? Do you take time to study God’s Word? Do you take time to meditate on God’s Word? Do you take time to apply God’s Word? Has it made an impact on your life?

Today’s reading comes to us from Ezekiel chapters 40-48. (40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48) Today’s reading teaches us about the New Temple. God reveals to Ezekiel a picture of the future.

Today’s devotional from The Global Impact Bible on the theme of the Bible’s impact on scientific discovery brings us the topic of Isaac Newton and Jewish temples. Today’s devotional teaches us that not only was Sir Isaac Newton one of history’s prominent scientists but was also an avid Bible commentator. We learn how Newton was fascinated by Solomon’s Temple and examined its measurements and they revealed about God. We learn about how he wrote Biblical remarks on Solomon’s Temple. He was very intrigued by the new temple (third temple) too as he believed that the dimensions of the third temple provided in today’s reading of Ezekiel 40-48 could hold keys to mathematical secrets about the universe. We read how those measurements of the temple from Ezekiel were considered “perfect” according to Newton. This third temple is yet to be built but we read in today’s devotional how some Jews hope it will someday be built in Jerusalem.

 

So how about you? What are you learning through God’s Word? What is God’s Word revealing to you? Have you started to apply it in your life? Have you invited Jesus into your heart? Have you daily started to walk out this life with God?

Let’s pray…

Salvation Prayer Example

For those who prayed this for the first time or as a recommitment to God, I celebrate with the angels in heaven that you made the greatest decision of your life. Will you leave a comment so that I know and pray for you? Will you leave a comment or question so we can have a conversation? Look for a local church that is a Bible believing, Bible preaching church that will be able to come alongside you and help you in this journey called life.


Heavenly Father,
I thank You Lord for this new day and for all the plans you have for us. I thank You Lord that Your plans and character are good. I thank You Lord that You will never leave me and never abandon me. I thank You Lord that You make a way even when there doesn’t seem to be a way. Help me today Lord to complete the works You have for me to do. Help me Lord to be able to glorify You in the thoughts I have, the things I do, and the words I speak. Help me Lord to point people to You so that in and through it all You will receive the praise, the honor, and the glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
