But Voyage au centre de la Terre was not one of them, mostly because the center of the Earth turned out not to be filled with dinosaurs, or have a express tunnel to Southern Italy.  Alas. My two kids really loved the movie, especially the 3-d version that we saw in an imax theatre. Journey to the Center of the Earth1My Uncle Makes a Great DiscoveryLOOKING BACK TO ALL THAT HAS OCCURRED TO ME SINCE THAT eventful day, I am scarcely able to believe in the reality of my adventures.
The nineteenth century novel (published in 1864) by Jules Verne called in English “Journey to the Center of the Earth” has become one of the literary classics of the science fiction genre. Admittedly, I didn’t title this lesson “Journey to the Center of the Earth” as an homage to Jules Verne and his writing. Come back on the journey with me again for a few moments…By now in the time line of our studies we have finished with Paul’s mission travels.
This doesn’t sound very profound, but it is actually an incredible encouragement when a storm hits us and “blind sides” our world. I love that my life is being staged by God, and that He provides people to take the journey along with me.
Acts 27:1b”… they proceeded to deliver Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion of the Augustan cohort named Julius. When you read the passage carefully, you see the following people are mentioned as part of the journey with Paul. Never underestimate the encouragement you offer someone by being a friend who showed up while everyone else just thought about showing up. Sometimes the detours appear as “alternative directions” – and God doesn’t seem to be cooperating in the natural world.
Acts 27:4 From there we put out to sea and sailed under the shelter of Cyprus because the winds were contrary.
Since weather has always been in the hands of God, we can surmise that God was watching as the men sailed into the contrary winds, and that slowed the journey down dramatically.
Usually the detours look like they are wasting precious time – but I have noticed that often God doesn’t seem to be in the hurry that I am.
God gave the men a perfectly reasonable warning in the words of Paul He simply told them “Don’t go if you don’t want to lost at least the ship and possible all our lives!” The warning was unheeded because the pilot and captain pressed the Centurion with the view they could make it without trouble.
Acts 27:12 Because the harbor was not suitable for wintering, the majority reached a decision to put out to sea from there, if somehow they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete, facing southwest and northwest, and spend the winter [there].
It may really frustrate you to have your voice discounted in the public square – but that isn’t the most important thing. For economy, let me suggest that a careful reading of the journey can be found in verses thirteen to seventeen. Acts 27:13 When a moderate south wind came up, supposing that they had attained their purpose, they weighed anchor and [began] sailing along Crete, close [inshore]. Nothing will get under your skin more than watching people go through trouble when you gave them a full and complete warning about the moves they were making before they did – especially when their choice imperils you and your family. First they lost the cargo, then the ship’s tackle, and eventually their hope got tossed into the sea as well. Some of the people I know have lost homes due to turmoil and unrest in their home villages. Did you ever move your home after living in it for a long time, only to discover you own a great deal more than you thought you did? God directs our lives when they seem long, hard and drawn out – while He proves that He keeps His Word! Recently, I heard a Pastor share a story about a woman who was a part of the church where he serves.
Chuck Swindoll introduced this story years ago, but it is perfect to illustrate what we have been studying and it makes me smile every time I recall it. Synopsis: From a father of science fiction--a perilous and astonishing adventure into the earth's core that details encounters with natural hazards, 40 foot mushrooms, and prehistoric beasts After decoding a scrap of paper in runic script, the intrepid Professor Lidenbrock and his nervous nephew Axel travel across Iceland to find the secret passage to the center of the earth.

Verne offered readers a tale about a German professor Otto Lidenbrock who insisted on testing his belief that there were volcanic tubes that led from the surface of the earth all the way to the core of the planet.
I have in mind a different journey – this one of a first century Roman citizen making his way to Rome – the place at the center of his political world.
We observed as Paul defended his faith in front of a mob, then a college of Jewish leaders, followed by two provincial governors and a finally a Jewish king and queen.
These are the unforeseen events that collide with us – in spite of our careful preparation in so many areas. 2 And embarking in an Adramyttian ship, which was about to sail to the regions along the coast of Asia, we put out to sea accompanied by Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica. You could look at that with a negative eye, like “I am on a ship of thieves and cutthroats.” At the same time, there is an obvious positive to the company… The events on the trip could serve as a backdrop to a larger testimony that could spread to new places in the mouths of these men. We know little of his personal resume, but we know something of his accomplishments and character that would have been essential to reaching such a station. The reason is simple: the storms of life and troubles of the journey weren’t meant to be weathered alone. 5 When we had sailed through the sea along the coast of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we landed at Myra in Lycia. I guess being eternal and timeless changes His perspective from being on a 100 year body lease.

Some of us have even reconciled God’s control of our traffic jam – but the idea that God is behind any part of simply writing off what we have to say is really tough!
Why they believed this so late in the year isn’t known – but their voice was heard and Paul’s was dismissed.
There are people in your life that WILL listen, and you can have an influence on others if you will faithfully follow God. In that portion you can see how the journey became perilous for the group as they moved along the shoreline of Crete and got pounded and driven by a northern wind that drove them out to sea.
14 But before very long there rushed down from the land a violent wind, called Euraquilo; 15 and when the ship was caught [in it] and could not face the wind, we gave way [to it] and let ourselves be driven along.
This is one of the reasons many believers are so frustrated with the social experimentation of our age with things like “no fault divorce”, “naturalist education” and “a new marriage definition”. That is only true until you don’t have them – and then you “make due” and find another way to keep going.
20 Since neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small storm was assailing [us], from then on all hope of our being saved was gradually abandoned. Recently I found that they have a television show on a cable channel and I could get access to some of the episodes on the internet.
22 “[Yet] now I urge you to keep up your courage, for there will be no loss of life among you, but [only] of the ship. They may have different sized waves, and they may have different ways of knocking us off balance… but we will face storms. Enlisting the silent Hans as a guide, the trio encounter a perilous and astonishing subterranean world of natural hazards, curious sights, prehistoric beasts, and sea monsters.

To prove his theory, he led an expedition with his nephew Axel, and their guide (Hans) into the earth beginning at an Icelandic volcano.
If you have been following the story of his life and ministry, you will recognize that I am referring to the Apostle Paul and his traveling companions. In this lesson we trace his journey to face the Roman Emperor, in spite of the fact that the recent news Paul could hear from Rome was deeply and increasingly unsettling.
Yet, just as it is true that trouble will come in our lives – so it is true that God will guide us through troubles into His arms. Paul wasn’t in charge of the decisions – but even if he had been – it would have made little difference. 3 The next day we put in at Sidon; and Julius treated Paul with consideration and allowed him to go to his friends and receive care. They may not have been our chosen audience – but they were the ones selected by God to be on the vessel. 6 There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing for Italy, and he put us aboard it.
If you have, you know what travel on a ship that is facing the wind and being slowed to a crawl feels like. Remember, we have already noted in a previous study that God’s will for us may not be about us. In the case of the Gospel, you may be there so that they can reject, and later on God will bring that rejection to their attention. Let me say this to anyone who is struggling because your faith is calling you to stand out – and you wonder if there is something wrong with you… In the history of mankind, the majority was seldom on the side of God, and seldom on the side of right. 16 Running under the shelter of a small island called Clauda, we were scarcely able to get the [ship’s] boat under control.
In each case, believers warn carefully of coming troubles, get ignored, and then have to watch patiently as the things they warned about come to pass. A tiny house, for the uninitiated, is a home that is usually smaller than five hundred square feet. He could have sent the angel a week before and they would have avoided this mess – but NO!.
Verse 37 marked out the fact that there were two hundred seventy-six people on board the vessel.
By the end – everyone knew that God knew, and more than that, they knew that Paul knew – because he knew God!
Thankfully, this passage reminds us that God provides practical help to guide us through the storms of life.

The fantastic journey included adventures such as engaging prehistoric animals and traversing perilous hazards of untamed nature.
This story offers us a series of brief reminders about how God directs our lives to get us to where He wants us. The fact is that we can plan and plan and plan – but if a storm hits us, it will likely be at a time we didn’t expect and in an area for which we didn’t prepare. You will find that many people are facing storms and the waves look even more treacherous than they are, because they feel they are facing the storms alone.
Well behind schedule, the Centurion landed in Asia Minor looking for a larger vessel bound for the Bay of Naples, and found one. It is very possible that God was doing something completely different than we would surmise based on the record.

I have been in the position many times of watching people ignore warnings given by a believer, and instead follow people who appear confident – but cannot offer reasonable assurance on their position. The same fragrance of Jesus that is life to the saved in 2 Corinthians is the stench of death to the lost.
17 After they had hoisted it up, they used supporting cables in undergirding the ship; and fearing that they might run aground on [the shallows] of Syrtis, they let down the sea anchor and in this way let themselves be driven along. Here is what I know: Loss is hard, but often we aren’t very good judges at the line between “need” and “want” in our lives.
Verse 38 made clear they ate and then tossed the rest of the grain overboard, committing them to finding shore soon, or forcing them to starve in its search! She said, “You know, I guess it is time for me to start really practicing that faith I have been talking about for all these years.
The problems began when Chippie’s owner decided to clean Chippie’s cage with a vacuum cleaner. All books are subject to prior sale and in some instances may sell to someone else in the time it takes to stop in and pick it up. And if Saknussemm was right, then every theory about the molten core of the earth is wrong.
In the end, they emerged at the Stromboli volcano on the tiny Stromboli Island in the Tyrrhenian Sea west of southern Italy, and north of the large island of Sicily. Luke’s record in the Book of Acts in the past, you know this journey seemed nearly as perilous and just as engaging as Verne’s writing of fictional travel – but this journey was very real, indeed.
Isn’t it comforting, even a little bit, to know in times like that the truth that God is still at work. One of the hardest parts of moving into a “tiny home” is learning to rid ourselves of the many things we have accumulated over the years that we have come to believe are absolute necessities.
Losing precious things can be very hard – but God is still directing your life and with you as you sit in the smaller pile of what is left. He didn’t send word in the beginning of the peril – he said nothing while the food was dwindling and the ship was breaking. Verse 40 ends with the perilous words that remind us after they had done all they knew how to do, they were heading for a rough grounding. We honor all hold requests for 7 days, after which the book will be returned to shelf and offered for sale. The science in Verne’s book is quite crude by modern standards, but the story line is both engaging and captivating.
He wasn’t just “passing through” the circumstances; he was experiencing God’s superintending of them.
Circumstances don’t happen to us – God works a plan and signs off on the things that hit my life. Since as a believer, I need to be kind, I don’t even get the opportunity for the big “I told you so!” when the problem blows up!
We don’t really know His plan for our future, except that it ends in our death or His return –everything else is speculation! God literally waited until they practically gave up every hope of making it through with their ship. In my view, few have mastered tactile description better than the classical writers of that period, and Verne is an exceptional example of his time. If we are “detoured to another destination” or “delayed by the unforeseen” and things “out of our control”, we must learn to rest in God’s superintending.
Here is the point: When God is superintending the journey and you don’t know what He is doing, don’t assume He has forgotten you. In other words, God let them exhaust themselves before He made His presence overtly known – and then it was up to Paul to assure the men onboard. The point was that they had done all they could, and God was about to do a work to raise up His man on board. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, please return the book within 10 days for a full refund or exchange. Where vast caverns and endless mazes lead to an underground ocean, living fire, and prehistoric monsters. While living on the islands and preaching to the slaves, they began a ministry that transformed lives for fifty years. That didn’t make seasickness any easier, and it didn’t guarantee them they would live through the experience – but it did mean things didn’t ‘just happen’ to them – their steps were ordered by the Lord (or should I say their swells and waves were ordered…). Moravian missionaries baptized 13,000 converts before any other missionaries ever arrived on the scene. Since the bird was covered with dust and soot, she grabbed him and raced to the bathroom, turned on the faucet, and held Chippie under the running water. We are not able to offer refunds on returned books that come back in a different and worse condition than when they were sent out. Then, realizing that Chippie was soaked and shivering, she did what any compassionate bird owner would do . A brand new book that was wrapped in shrink wrap when shipped can not be returned if it has been opened and the dust cover is torn for example. A few days after the trauma, the reporter who’d initially written about the event contacted Chippie’s owner to see how the bird was recovering.
