Watchwoman on the Wall

Watchwoman: A friend emailed me this and I had to share it with YOU! Wow! What an amazing piece of evidence that Jesus Christ is the Creator! I’ve added some video from YouTube and a picture of Louie Giglio plus some facts about him. I added a better picture of laminin than what was emailed to me.  I checked it out at snopes.com to make sure it wasn’t a hoax.  If you haven’t already seen this, I’m certain you’ll be inspired to learn about the cross that knits you together — and even for you atheists who won’t believe a word of this, you still have that cross within you, no matter how much you deny it.

ATTENTION ALL ATHEISTS AND UNBELIEVERS! 
One day you’ll believe in Jesus Christ. That’s an absolute fact! I just pray for you that it’s sooner than later.

If you doubt that Jesus Christ is your Savior, please refer to a previous post at this Watchwoman on the Wall blog.  It will be the greatest moment of your life when you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior!

The Cross in Our Bodies

This is a pretty neat story and an interesting thing that few of us know. It’s brief, so please read.

From a Doctor…

A couple of days ago I was running (I use that term very loosely) on my treadmill, watching a DVD sermon by Louie Giglio… And I was BLOWN AWAY! I want to share what I learned….

He (Louie) was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God is… How He spoke the universe into being… How He breathes stars out of His mouth that are huge raging balls of fire… Etc. Etc. Then He went on to speak of how this star-breathing, universe creating God ALSO knitted our human bodies together with amazing detail and wonder. At this point I am LOVING it (fascinating from a medical standpoint, you know.) .. And I was remembering how I was constantly amazed during medical school as I learned more and more about God’s handiwork. I remember so many times thinking..’How can ANYONE deny that a Creator did all of this???’

Louie went on to talk about how we can trust that the God who created all this, also has the power to hold it all together when things seem to be falling apart…how our loving Creator is also our sustainer.

And then I lost my breath. And it wasn’t because I was running my treadmill, either!!!

It was because he started talking about laminin. I knew about laminin….Here is how Wikipedia describes them:’Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue’ You see…. Laminins are what hold us together… LITERALLY. They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without them, we would literally fall apart. And I knew all this already. But what I didn’t know is what they LOOKED LIKE…


But now I do. And I have thought about it a thousand times since (already)….Here is what the structure of laminin looks like… AND THIS IS NOT a ‘Christian portrayal’ of it…. If you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of literature, this is what you will see….Now tell me that our God is not the coolest!!! Amazing. The glue that holds us together…. ALL of us….. Is in the shape of the cross.

Immediately Colossians 1:15-17 comes to mind. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. All things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him All things HOLD TOGETHER.’ Colossians 1:15-17

Call me crazy. I just think that is very, very, very cool. Thousands of years before the world knew anything about laminin, Paul penned those words. And now we see that from a very LITERAL standpoint, we are held together… One cell to another…. By the cross.You would never in a quadrillion years convince me that is anything other than the mark of a Creator who knew EXACTLY what laminin ‘glue’ would look like long before Adam breathed his first breath!!What I found when I googled laminin !!!!!!!!!!!

[Colossians 1:1-29 KJV]  Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother, [:2 ]  To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.[:3 ]  We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,[:4 ]  Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,[:5 ]  For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;[:6 ]  Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:[:7 ]  As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;[:8 ]  Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.[:9 ]  For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;[:10 ]  That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;[:11 ]  Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;[:12 ]  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:[:13 ]  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:[:14 ]  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:[:15 ]  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:[:16 ]  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:[:17 ]  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.[:18 ]  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.[:19 ]  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;[:20 ]  And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.[:21 ]  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled[:22 ]  In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:[:23 ]  If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;[:24 ]  Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:[:25 ]  Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;[:26 ]  Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:[:27 ]  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:[:28 ]  Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:[:29 ]  Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. (Emphasis added to verses 15-17)
