FROM CHAOS TO LAW & ORDER

This article is an excerpt from “Moon Into Blood Trilogy”

Atheism has concluded that the Universe was the product of a giant explosion in ages past, which they call “The Big Bang Theory”: In the beginning there was nothing. And out of nothing came an explosion, from which the Universe was born. And out of this chaos came a well-ordered, and very beautiful Universe in which…all things operate according to laws: billions of laws!

.

Do you see the contradiction of such an idea? According to them, out of merely nothing, came law and order as well as poetic beauty! Does this sound absurd?

LAW & ORDER THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE

.

From the tiniest pahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Stylised_Lithium_Atom.pngrticle of an atom, to the greatest of all galaxies…there is law and order. Laws concerning gravity. Laws concerning food. Laws concerning music…and motion…and mechanics. Laws concerning all creatures, great and small. From the tiniest amoeba, to the great whales of the oceans. From the tiniest atom, to the greatest star. Laws about the Earth, and fire and air…and laws about water. Laws about health and laws about UN-health. Everywhere and everything operates by laws…millions and billions of laws! Laws which require obedience, and laws which impose penalties for DIS-obedience.

THERE MUST BE A SUPREME LAW-GIVER!

.

Now at this point, the question that must be asked is this: “Where did all these laws come from, by which the Universe operates? Did these laws just come out of nowhere? Or can we conclude that all these laws which govern, not only Man, but every single thing in the Universe as well, were given by some supreme Law-Giver?”

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:G%C3%A9r%C3%B4me,_Jean-L%C3%A9on_-_Moses_on_Mount_Sinai_Jean-L%C3%A9on_G%C3%A9r%C3%B4me_-1895-1900.jpg

The obvious answer is “Yes, there must be a Law-Giver”. It only makes sense! Laws didn’t just magically appear out of nothing! And God is that supreme Law-Giver!

.

But the same God who wrote the laws of Nature has also written the moral laws for Mankind to follow. And the Book we call the Bible is that Divine Law-book given to Mankind, by that Divine Law-Giver…God.

THE JOY OF LAW & ORDER

.

If you would ask a scientist why he or she loved science, you would be sure to hear the answer,“Because all nature operates by Law & Order!”

.

Yes, this is the one great reason why there are scientists! Because all of nature is very predhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpgictable, as long as that scientist is familiar with the various laws of whatever he is researching.

.

Now this is amazing, if we really think about it! Supposedly all this universe, being filled with law & order, came forth from chaos and nothingness!

.

And out of all this chaos and nothingness, a great explosion brought forth a well-ordered universe (according to their big-bang theory), with almost an endless number of laws, which govern every single thing, great and small, animate and inanimate alike!

.

And so, here we have thousands of scientists, many who are atheists. And one of their greatest joys is to work within all this law & order! And yet they cannot put 2-and-2 together! They cannot understand that all this law & order could not exist without a supreme Law-Giver….GOD!

NATURE’S POETRY…

.

 

But not only does nature operate by laws, but nature operates in beauty and in poetry, too. Does Man imagine that this drop of water looking like a beautiful crown is just a

freak accident of nature? No! It tells of God’s kingly majesty as He offers all to drink freely of the “Water of Life”. And so this water-drop is a visual metaphor, and a poetic statement made by nature…spoken to Man: Man, the only being on Earth who can appreciate its beauty and poetry. Just an accident?

THE SPIDER: A SYMBOL OF EVIL

.800px-Spider_vdg wikipedia Share-alike license

Does Mankind think some “Big Bang” could ever have produced this scary-looking spider and its web…a perfect illustration of how evil desires to ensnare fallen men in its web of addictions and deceptions? Just ask any of us who have ever been ensnared by some addiction or habit. The spider web is such an incredible metaphor of Satan’s seductive power! So here too is poetry…howbeit the more frightful, hideous kind of poetry, rather than being beautiful. But a very necessary metaphor to help us to understand sin and Satan.

A WORLD OF LIES

.

With all this law & order, it would seem like a very elementary conclusion, that this beautiful and poetic and allegorically-instructive universe is the creation of an all-wise and all-powerful Creator!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

But in defense of scientists, we have an enemy, who has, “blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2nd Corinthians 4:4.

.

Yes, 2nd Corinthians 4:4 calls him, “the god of this world”! And the overwhelming evil which pervades this hopeless world, should make it obvious that there is a literal enemy of God, the Devil, or Satan, as he is called in the Bible!

THE VERY GOOD NEWS!

.

And so, we live in a world which is a great contradiction! That is, though we see all this http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpgbeauty and law & order, and poetry, and allegorical-wisdom in nature! But we also see a world filled with a Mankind in rebellion against the goodness and law & order which governs the universe! And so, mankind is confused by these two great opposing forces!

.

But the very Good News is, that the all-wise, and all-benevolent God has given us a Book which makes sense of all this very confusing world! And by reading that Book, we discover that this loving Creator has sent His only begotten Son into this lost world, that, “that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life!” John 3:16

A HIGHWAY OF HOPE!

.

Yes, not only has God given the tokens of His goodness and love, as seen in nature, but He has provided us a way of escape from this world of sin and death! And this “Highway To Heaven” has been made possible through the atonement provided by our loving Savior, Jesus Christ! 

.

And so, what are we waiting for? Let us each begin to climb that highway, as we become disciples and followers of Jesus!

.

“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness;” Isaiah 8:35

THE MOON: A 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

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

.

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.

.

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.” Matt. 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. And this article will show some further metaphoric truths to this wonderful and mysterious object-lesson in the sky, known as the Moon. (For more on this subject of an eclipse, you may link to the article… “Lunar Eclipse & Spiritual Eclipse”)

“MOON SHALL BE ASHAMED”

.

.1st Face in Moon-www.signsofheaven.org

“Then the moon shall be confounded (or “ashamed”), and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

.

But having said all this, why would God speak about the Moon as if it were a person? And why does He say that the Moon will be confounded? How can an inanimate object be confounded (i.e., “perplexed”, “confused”, “amazed”). And why does God refer to the Moon as “her” (“the moon shall not give HER light.” Ezek. 32:7)? Such odd language! But as you read this Moon Into Blood Trilogy, these questions will be answered, plus many more questions, as well.
