What'sIn The Cave? The Garden of Eden was fair and beautiful and perfect with no flaw whatsoever. The land and hills were not rough and jagged. The atmosphere was of perfect temperature all the time until Adam and Eve sinned. Then when the Devil was controlling man people started killing each other. Nobody was safe because man was so evil. This beautiful land was marred by the evil on every hand. So God brought a flood on the earth and destroyed all those thousands of people.Only eight people were in the ark with all those animals. The water rose high above the mountains and broke up the earth and made great high rugged mountains in many places on the earth and buried a lot of the gold and precious stones in the mountains. A lot of the people were hundreds of years old and had been living wicked lives all those years so God had to destroy them. Now the flood made lots of caves in the earth with jagged rocks everywhere. We read of a cave where Abraham buried his wife. We read about Elijah going to a cave at Mt. Horeb. Lot dwelt in a cave not far from Zoar. Many people were buried in caves. We have the examples of Lazarus and Jesus being buried in caves. Jeremiah hid the ark in a cave. Many of the scrolls were hid or saved in caves. Now in these modern days we know there are many underground rivers and caves such as the Oregon caves and Carlsbad Caverns. In the desert there are caves with ice in them. At Sequoia National Park are also caves that are very cold. You also can see the caves in the mountains in Arizona where the early Indians lived. There has always been a need to have some kind of shelter in stormy weather to keep from the effects of the elements that are only a natural occurrence. Have you ever been in a shelter and thankful you are there while the lightening flashes continue a good portion of the night. That is a good time to be in a cave. Make sure you have substantial lighting and warm clothing and a map of the tunnels and caves. And don’t go in a cave if the ground is loose or if there has been a resent earthquake or volcanic action. Never go in a cave or tunnel when you are alone. Also leave contact messages with the Forestry Control people. Take enough food with you to last the expected time to be away and more for emergency. Take your Bible ” The Sword ”. Make sounds and noise and talk as you walk so that you can alert the animals that are around. Pitch your tent before dark.
