This story came was originally published in a mid west news paper may years ago we would have not made the advances we have as a nation in the space program had it not been for this,enjoy.

With all of the calculations for reaching Mars this week. Here is an interesting story.

This is truly worth reading…

This is one of the most interesting things I have heard in a while.

Hope you think so too.

For all the scientists out there, and for all the students who have a hard

time convincing these people regarding the truth of the Bible, here’s

something that shows God’s awesome creation, and that He is still in


Did you know that the space program is busy proving that what has been

called “myth” in the Bible is true? Mr.. Harold Hill, President of the

Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore, Maryland, and a consultant in the space

program, relates the following development.

I think one of the most amazing things that God has done for us today

happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at

GreenBelt, Maryland. They were checking out where the positions of the sun,

moon, and planets would be 100 years and 1,000 years from now. We have to know this so

we won’t send up a satellite and have it bump into something later on in its

orbits. We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite

and where the planets will be so the whole thing will not bog down.

They ran the computer measurement back and forth over the centuries, And it

came to a halt. The computer stopped and put up a red signal, which meant

that there was something wrong with either the information fed into it or

with the results as compared to the standards. They called in the service

department to check it out, and they said, ‘What’s wrong?”

Well, they found there is a day missing in space in lapsed time. They

scratc! hed their heads and tore their hair. There was no answer.

Finally a Christian man on the team said, ‘You know, one time I was

in Sunday School, and they talked about the sun standing still.’ While

They didn’t believe him, they didn’t have an answer either, so they

said, ‘Show us.’ He got a Bible and went to the book of Joshua where they found a

pretty ridiculous statement for any one with ‘common sense.’ There they found the

Lord saying to Joshua, ‘Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy hand; there

Shall not a man of them

stand before thee.’

Joshua was concerned because he was surrounded by the enemy, and if darkness

fell, they would overpower them. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun

stand still! That’s right… ‘The sun stood still and the moon stayed and

lasted not to go down about a whole day!’ (Joshua 10:12-13) The astronauts

and scientists said, ‘There is the missing day!’

They checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found it

was close but not close enough.

The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua’s day was 23 hours and 20

minutes … not a whole day. They read the bible, and there it was ‘about

(approximately) a day’ These little words in the Bible are important, but they were

still in trouble because if you cannot account

for 40 minutes, you’ll still be in trouble 1,000 years from now. Forty minutes had to

be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits. As the Christian

employee thought about it, he remembered somewhere in the Bible where it said

the sun went BACKWARDS.

The scientists told him he was out of his mind, but they got out the “Book”

and read these words in 2 Kings that told of the following story: Hezekiah,

on his death bed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him that he was

not going to die.

Hezekiah asked for a sign as proof. Isaiah said ‘Do you want the sun to go

ahead 10 degrees?’ Hezekiah said, ‘It is nothing for the sun to go ahead 10

degrees, but let the shadow return backward 10 degrees.’ Isaiah spoke to the

Lord, and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees BACKWARD! Ten degrees is

exactly 40 minutes!

Twenty-three hours and 20 minutes in Joshua, plus 40 minutes in Second Kings

make the missing day in the universe!” Isn’t it amazing?

References: Joshua 10:8 and 12,13 and 2 Kings 20:9-11.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Prov 3:5-6 (KJV)

United we stand and divided we fall… The Choice is your to make
