 The world appreciates the Sun, and all its benefits. Its beauty. Itshttp://www.flickr.com/people/10031363@N00 warmth. Its life-giving properties. 

.

And just look at this photo to the left! “Sunlight on King Street” What an appropriate name! Do you think this bicycler was having a nice day in the Sun? The Sun can be very healing. And God has given the Sun for Mankind’s needs: for his health, and for his happiness.

.

But He also has given the Sun to be a spiritual sign. The Sun teaches some important Biblical truths.

.

Yes, nature testifies to the majesty & grandeur, to the the law & order, to the love and poetry of our great and awesome God!

But God has also inscribed wisdom, divine wisdom, in all of nature.

.

Yes, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is inscribed in all, from the tiniest atomic particle to the greatest galaxy: God’s wisdom can be discovered in all the universe!

Yes, the Sun has many wonderful qualities about it, that all humans may enjoy.

.

But the Sun plays an important role in revealing Jesus Christ to the world!

.

From Jesus’ own lips, He proclaimed…“I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John8:12

OUR SOLAR SYSTEM’S GREATEST METAPHOR

.

Yes, our Sun happens to be this solar-system’s largest metaphor concerning the http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficheiro:Transfiguration_bloch.jpgGospel. And it allegorically represents the greatest truth in all the universe and beyond: That Jesus Christ is “the light of the world”!

.

And as we consider the many wonderful (and even fearful) aspects of the Sun, we can gain a greater understanding of just who is this majestic Being who came to this world long ago, and gave Himself for our redemption!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

 

1st ORB: THE SUN = 1ST COMMANDMENT

.

“Thou shall have no other gods before Me”

.

.

One great clue that if the Sun would correspond to the First Commandment, “You shall have no other gods before Me”, is that the names which Mankind has given to the planets, all named after pagan gods: Saturn, Mars, Jupiter, etc… are all names of ancient pagan deities. Then begin to relate the Sun corresponding to the first Commandment… “You shall have no other gods before Me”, which just so happens to be surrounded by planets named after pagan gods! It would seem that God has allowed Mankind (under the influence of “the god of this world, of course) to name these planets after pagan gods, in order to make a very poignant statement: that statement being, that we citizens of this planet are in rebellion against God, therefore, we have other gods. And just as those planets (named after pagan gods) encircle the Sun (The Sun representing God many times in the Bible), so too this human race has placed our affections on other things: our time, energy, and affections, which should have been only given to our Creator/Savior. So God has set up this solar system to present this concept of the Sun (Christ) being surrounded by our many other gods (i.e., the 9 planets, named after pagan gods).
