Recently I had the honor of writing about my favorite group of animals (of course I mean creeping things) for Creation Illustrated Magazine! The article “The Creation of Creeping Things” was featured in the Fall 2016 Edition, Vol.23, No.3 which has just become available for purchase. You can subscribe or find out more about Creation Illustrated here: http://www.creationillustrated.com/
The article is about day 6 of the creation week (as told in the book of Genesis) and how the creeping things fit into the rest of God’s Creation. In the article, and in Creeping Things Ministries, we focus on how the design of these animals glorifies their infinitely wise Designer. If you are a reader of this blog, you will find the article to be very similar to what you see here and what we do in the Creeping Things Video Series.
I was also blessed to see that Creation Illustrated chose to use four of my photos in the article. I literally have thousands of photos of reptiles and amphibians that are not currently being put to good use, and I would much prefer them to be utilized in a God-honoring way.
They appropriately chose the Desert Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma platyrhinos), Blainville’s Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma blainvillii) the Copperhead Snake (Agkistrodon contortrix), and the Black Rat Snake (Pantherophis obsoletus).
Creation Illustrated Magazine is also available for purchase at the Creation and Earth History Museum in Santee, CA. Pick up a copy of Creation Illustrated today and check out the article on page 28.
Thanks for reading! To God be the glory forever Amen!
I am excited to see how God is using the Creeping Things Ministry and it was a tremendous blessing to be on the Creation in the 21st Century Show! Our purpose, whether it is in the Creeping Things DVD Series or in our live animal shows, is to steer your gaze at the creature so that you marvel at the handiwork of the Creator and praise Him!
During these interviews I was able to explain how these creeping creatures fit into God’s creation and to share that message with a national audience! Special thanks to producer/director Kyle Justice of Awesome Science Media for setting up these interviews.
The Creeping Things DVD program focuses on insects, arachnids, reptiles, amphibians, and anything else that creeps upon the ground and where they fit into God’s Creation. Each episode is a showcase of the glory, power, and genius of the Master Designer. We can’t wait to see how the Lord is going to use this series!
Episode 1: Underappreciated Creepers – This episode focuses on the creatures of this world that people tend to overlook or dismiss and how there is much to be learned from them.
Episode 2: Desert Creepers – This episode is all about the creeping things that inhabit the deserts of the southwest.
Episode 3: California Creepers – This episode showcases the iconic creeping creatures that call California their home.
