Nature’s Witnesses, Part 8: “The Awesome Grandeur of Nature”

To read Part 1, click here…Today’s Devotional – January 25th (Nature’s 7 Witnesses)

“Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power,

and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:

for all that is in the Heaven and in the earth is Thine;

Thine is the kingdom, O LORD,

and Thou art exalted as head above all.”

1st Chronicles 29:11

BEAUTY, POETRY, WISDOM & LAWS ALL TESTIFY OF OUR CREATOR!

.

Instead of arguing about the technical issues in the debate between Evolution and Creation, there are seven powerful witnesses all which testify in behalf of a divine Creator.

.

And so, in Part 1 (click here to read), 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.

.

3 MORE WITNESSES! 

.

But since the writing of that first devotional (click here to read), yet another three witnesses are found in nature!

.

God, the Creator of nature’s Love.

.

God, the Creator of nature’s Grandeur.

.

And God, the Creator of nature’s signs in the sun, moon, and stars.

THE AWESOME MAJESTY

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sunset_at_Huntington_Beach.jpgAnd so, it is discovered that nature has yet another witness: its awesome grandeur!

.

Yes, nature is awesome!

.

And it is grand!

.

Majestic and powerful!

.

Or whatever other superlative one wishes to use to describe this 6th witness to nature’s Creator.

FROM CHAOS TO MAJESTIC!?

After all, how could all the splender and majestic nobility found throughout nature just be the result of some cosmic accident!

The Bible testifies that Mankind is without excuse for their willing ignorance of God’s existence…“Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him 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 1:19, 20

.

Here we see that God is making no excuse for Mankind’s willing ignorance of God’s existence! No, God has inscribed His witnesses throughout nature, which all testify of the Creator’s power and majesty!

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

.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.” 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”)
