BEAUTY, POETRY, WISDOM & LAWS

.

ALL TESTIFY OF OUR CREATOR!

.

So in Part 1, it was put forth that in all of nature, there are four witnesses, who all testify in behalf of the Creator! Beauty, Poetry, Wisdom, and Laws, all stand up and speak so eloquently in defense of nature’s God!

.

And it would seem, that any doubter or skeptic, who would open his or her mind to carefully consider the testimony of these four very persuasive witnesses, would eventually come to the same conclusion: there has to be a Creator, who is filled with these same qualities:

.

God, the Creator of nature’s beauty.

.

God, the Creator of nature’s poetry.

.

God, the Creator of nature’s wisdom.

.

God, the Creator of nature’s law & order.

5TH WITNESS: LOVE!

.

But since the writing of that first devotional, yet another witness found in nature, has risen up in defense of the Creator: a powerful witness that defies and even decimates the supposed logic of the so-called Theory of Evolution!https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:6tag_250316-124351.jpg

.

And so, now we see that there are not four, but five witnesses found in nature, which all testify of God’s Creation!

.

And just what is that 5th witness?

.

LOVE!

.

Yes, love is the 5th witness found throughout nature!

THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE!

.

You see, God has interwoven love throughout nature! And perhaps love is the greatest of all of these five witnesses…

Listen…“And now abideth faith, hope, charity (love), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love).” 1st Corinthians 13:13

.

You see, when you think about it, love is what makes our lives worth living!

.

And God has written love upon His Creation, to the degree that only a fool could deny the Creator’s existence…“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” Psalm 14:1 

.

And those of us (this editor included) who had once denied God’s existence, were blinded to this most wonderful witness of love found throughout nature!

EVIDENCES OF GOD’S LOVE!

But it is the joy and privilege of those who are filled with the Holy Spirit to behold the tokens of God’s love, wherever we go!

Yes, nature has given us ample evidences of God’s love, to the degree that it’s written, “For the invisible things of Him (God) from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:” Romans 1:20

.

And if only those of us who have been deceived by atheism would just sit still and consider how this universe could not exist without love, there would probably be very few atheists left in the world!

COUNTLESS TOKENS OF GOD’S LOVE!

Well, if those who have been mercifully enlightened by the truth will just stop and consider the countless places that God’s Love has been interwoven in nature, they will no doubt be amazed at the totality of God’s love, written upon every aspect of nature!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

HEAVENLY OBJECT LESSON

.

“Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.” Isaiah 24:23

.

When God created the Moon and the stars, He ordained them to “rule the night” (Gen. 1:16). The Moon, especially when it is full, can light your pathway through the night, as it reflects the light of the Sun.

..http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Um_moinho_dominando_a_ba%C3%ADa_%C3%A0_luz_lunar.jpg

So too, the Christian is to be a light to the world: to this sin-darkened world. But as the Moon must reflect the light of the Sun, in order to be a light to the world, so also must the Christian reflect the light of Jesus, to be a spiritual light to this planet in rebellion. Listen…

.

“Ye are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

.This is a drawing of a winter-time total lunar eclipse, first published in Bilder- (Picture Atlas of the Stemenwelt) in 1888

However, during an eclipse, the Earth passes directly between the Sun and the Moon, preventing that sunlight from shining on the Moon’s face. This is an incredible object-lesson about when the child of God allows the world to come between him and his Lord. Like the eclipse, that person no longer reflects the light of Jesus, because his or her love of this dark world of sin has eclipsed the light from the “Sun of Righteousness” (see Malachi 4:2).

.

And so, this is just one of the many poetic truths seen in the Moon. (For more on this subject of an eclipse, you may link to the article… “Lunar Eclipse & Spiritual Eclipse”)
