For all the scientists out there and all the students who have a hard time convincing people about the truth in the Bible, here’s something that shows God is still in control.

NASA’s space programs are actually very busy proving that the “myths” in the Bible are true. Mr. Harold Hill, the President of the Curtis engine Company in Baltimore, a consultant in space programs also, recently 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”.

They were checking the positions of several space objects like the Sun, Moon and planets and their positions in 100 and 1000 years – this must be done so our satellites won’t collide with the orbits of the planets. 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. The scientist said that they discovered that somewhere in space a day was missing in elapsed time!

Nobody had any solution to the problem, when finally, a Christian explained that in Sunday school, they spoke about the Sun standing still. Nobody believed him and they asked him to show them, since they did not have an answer too. He got a Bible, opened it at the book of Joshua where they found a pretty ridiculous statement for common sense.

Then they read the 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 concerned because the enemy had surrounded him, and if darkness fell, they would overpower him. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun stand still! That’s right – “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).

There’s the missing day, the astronauts and scientists said. They checked the computers and found that the time missing was 23 hours and 20 minutes, not a full day like in the book of Joshua.

They read the Bible again – it said “about (approximately) a day”. The bible was true, but they were still missing 40 minutes which had to be found otherwise it could spell trouble 1000 years from now. The Christian said that he remembered something in the Bible saying that the Sun went backwards. Again, no one believed him but they opened the Bible again.

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!
