Recently, there was a statement by Mr. Harold Hill, the President of the Curtis engine Company in Baltimore and a consultant in space programs who said: “One of the most amazing things that God has for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Maryland”.
Nowadays, NASA’s space programs are working hard to prove that the “myths” from the Bible are actually true.
To make sure that our satellites won’t collide with the orbits of the planets, NASA is checking the positions of the space objects (Sun, Moon and planets) and their positions in 100 and 1000 years. We have to lay out the orbits so our projects do not take a turn for the worse. In the middle of computer measurements and data, a red signal put everything to a halt, meaning there’s something wrong, with the data or the results. The service department was called to check it out, and they asked what’s wrong. It was discovered by the scientists that somewhere in the space a day was missing in elapsed time!
There was no solution to this problem, until a Christian showed up and explained that when he was attending Sunday school, it was spoken about the Sun standing still. They didn’t believe him and asked for a explanation. Then he took the Bible and opened it at the book of Joshua in which they found a pretty ridiculous statement for common sense.
There was a passage when God said to Joshua: “Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy hand; there shall not be a man of them stand before thee.” (Joshua 10:8).
Joshua was afraid because he was surrounded from the enemy and he knew that they will overpower him when the darkness falls. Then he asks the Lord to make the sun still! – “And the sun stood still and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their
enemies. Is this not written in the book of Ja’-sher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven and hastened not to go down about a whole
day.” (Joshua 10:13).
The scientists and astronauts then realized that was the missing day, but it wasn’t exactly 24 hours, it was 23 hours and 20 minutes. Bur when they read the Bible again – it said “about (approximately) a day”. But still, those 40 minutes were missing. They had to be found because otherwise, it could spell trouble 1000 years from now. Then the Chrisitan remembered that he read something in the Bible that was saying that the Sun went backwards. And it was true, that was written also.
Hezekiah was visited on his deathbed by Isaiah the prophet, who told him that it’s not his time yet. Hezekiah asked for a sign, and Isaiah asked if the Sun would go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees? Hezekiah answered: “It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees; nay, but let the shadow return backwards ten degrees.”
“And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the Lord, and He brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz.” 10 degrees is exactly 40 minutes! The 23 hours and 20 minutes from Joshua plus the 10 degrees (40 minutes) in the 2 kings accounted for the missing day!
