I am a Receiver

“The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them” (Prov. 20:12).


hese two small receivers should be enough to convince man that he is no accident of nature or product of evolution.  Both the “hearing” and the “seeing” are ends not beginnings.  These two complex systems reveal something of a reasoning intelligence behind an order of design.  Those who believe in evolution and wish to give nature the credit for creation may just as well believe that a house develop a roof to keep the rain out, and grow glass paned windows to let the sunlight in.  The theory of evolution is absurd. 

 The hearing ear and the seeing eye are an intelligent arrangement of unrelated laws, systems, chemical, electrical, and biological components working together to collect intelligent data to be used intelligently for some designed purpose and intent. 

 God is Light.  Is it any wonder that He who is called Light would design a seeing eye?  Was it intelligence or evolution (random trial and error of natural selection) that created the pupil, the retina, the optic nerve, the cornea, the transparent lens, laws of refraction, and then brought them all together into a system to collect information?  Only a fool says in his heart, there is no God. 

 In the beginning was the WORD.  Is it any wonder that the One who is the WORD, the One who is the Alphabet of Creation (the Alpha and the Omega) would create the hearing ear?  It is a marvel.   Just look at its beauty with its microscopic bones, its anvil, stirrup, and hammer.  What evolution could have invented the eardrum and the Eustachian tube?  Only a divine Intelligence could have made such a masterpiece as the cochlea and placed this little seashell-like component precisely in the middle ear and then hard wire it to the auditory nerve. 

 Truly we are fearfully and wonderfully made.  God made man with sensors.  Man has five sensors: hearing, seeing, tasting, touching, and smelling.  Man suspects there is one missing however.  Not sure what to call it, like the Greeks with their altar to the unknown God they call it the “sixth sense.”  Then they grope around with what they believe to be intuition.  Paul and the Bible tell us that this unexplainable thing is a missing spiritual sense.  “The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1Cor. 2:14).  When Adam sinned this most important sense was more than impaired, it was disconnected.  Only in faith is this most important sensor fixed.  It is at the Cross that the connection and the correction is made.  Sensors are receivers that enable something to understand and know what is happening.  Those without God have no idea of what is happening.  We were designed by the same One who designed the seeing eye and hearing ear that we might know Him and receive Him.  The spiritual receiver or what some call the sixth sense springs to life the moment a sinner receives Christ.  “But to as many as receive Him, to them gave He the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.”  God intended for you to be a receiver.  Receive Him.
