The truth of the world has been searched by man for millennia, many of the worlds greatest and well-known leaders have established themselves by pursuing their own philosophies that they viewed to have brought for the revelation of mankind, and one after another these leaders fell looking for the truth, although it was right under their noses the entire time.
Two thousand years ago, a Galilean preacher, God in the flesh, delivered the truth of mankind. It was confirmed at His rather well-documented resurrection. Yet, aside from that, aside from the secrets revealed to mankind by the Bible and God’s literal guiding of history, how can we know this?
Well, rivers of course! Not just any rivers, though. Four rivers that appear in the second chapter of the great Book of Genesis.
Genesis 2:8-14: The Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there He placed the man He had formed. The Lord God caused to grow out of the ground every tree pleasing in appearance and good for food, including the tree of life in the middle of the garden, as well as the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. A river went out from Eden to water the garden. From there it divided and became the source of four rivers. The name of the first is Pishon, which flows through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. Gold from that land is pure; bdellium and onyx are also there. The name of the second river is Gihon, which flows through the entire land of Cush. The name of the third river is the Tigris, which runs east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
The rivers of Tigris, Euphrates, Pishon (modern-day Wadi Batin) and Gihon (modern-day Karun) establish the truth of the Scriptures, and more importantly, Christianity. According to the Book of Genesis, these four rivers meet together in a single, large source of water, and that the river is fed by underground water that rises to the surface of the Earth (Gen. 2:6). Supposedly, one problem emerges — and that is that today, and in fact in the time that Genesis was written (over 3,000 years ago), these four rivers of the Tigris, Euphrates, Pishon and Gihon do not actually meet each other anywhere on Earth. However… That is only true for the world geography of today. Genesis takes place during the early days of humanity (about 150,000-100,000 years ago).
Behold, a geographical map of the Gulf Oasis, a no longer present massive body of water that existed more than 100,000 years ago.
Several years ago, in 2010, a considerable geographical survey by Jeffrey Rose based on the geography of the Gulf Oasis region that existed more then one hundred thousand years ago, located in the Middle East, was published to the journal Current Anthropology. In this body of water that once existed in the Middle East (that would have exceeded the size of the land mass of Britain), the four rivers of Tigris, Euphrates, Pishon (modern-day Wadi Batin) and Gihon (modern-day Karun) met. Exactly what the Book of Genesis says existed in the early days of humanity.
Not only that, but the paper documented that these four rivers, and the water mass they met in known as the Gulf Oasis, was watered by subterranean aquifers that flow beneath the Arabian subcontinent, also proving that, just as Genesis tells us, water flowed from beneath the surface of the Earth to water the land, where the four rivers of Tigris, Euphrates, Pishon and Gihon met. The author of the Book of Genesis understood very well the geography that existed during the beginning of the human age, and this geographical information had not been around in the time that the Book of Genesis was written. Indeed, when Genesis was written, these four rivers met nowhere on Earth, making it impossible for him to have known that such a thing ever existed during the early age of humanity. Yet, it is right there in Genesis 2. The author of the Book of Genesis tells us something he could not possibly have known as a human living over 3,000 years ago. This knowledge could not come from man, it must have come from God.
