There are witnesses in nature that offer dramatic and undeniable testimony to God as the Creator of this wonderful universe: the wisdom of nature, the beauty of nature, the grandeur of nature, the poetry of nature, the laws of nature, as well as the many acts of love so often seen in nature.

.

Yes, these are undeniable witnesses that God’s creation throughout the vast universe was no freak accident, but the product of an infinite and all-wise, and all-powerful Creator God!

THE SIGNS OF HEAVEN!

.

And yet, in His infinite love, our Heavenly Father gives even more undeniable clues that He is the Creator.

.

Take for instance, the signs of Heaven which this website has the great privilege of revealing.

.

Yes, God has actually inscribed pictures of the Gospel of Salvation, written in the Sun, Moon, and stars!

THE LITTLE UNDERSEA ARTIST

.

But there is a little fish that lives in the depths of the sea, which God has given a remarkable testimony to his Creator.

And just what little fish are we speaking of?

.

Well, this little fish is known as the Japanese Puffer fish. And believe it or not, God has given this little fish the gift of artistry! Yes, in hopes of attracting its female counterpart, this little fish begins a huge art project on the floor of the sea, in which it labors day and night to sculpt an image of the sun!

.

Well, perhaps it’s the image of a flower! Or maybe it’s the image of a sunflower.

SPEAKS OF THE CHRISTIAN’S ART PROJECT

.

Well, regardless of exachttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fugu_in_Tank.jpgtly what this image is of, this little insignificant creature goes to work to create this remarkable image in hopes of being noticed by a potential mate!

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jesus_Christ_in_prayer.jpg

Now of course, this phenomenon is truly amazing in its own right!

.

And yet, the inescapable analogy can readily be seen as this little Puffer Fish’s artwork seems to speak of the desire of each and every Christian: to proclaim the glorious “Sun of Righteousness” to the onlooking world!

CREATING THE IMAGE OF CHRIST UPON THE HEART

.

Yes, there is nothing so vitally important to the Christian than to transform his or her own self into the image of Christ, the “Sun of Righteousness”, the ‘Rose of Sharon”, the “Lily of the Valley”.

http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficheiro:Transfiguration_bloch.jpg

.

This is the true witness which every son or daughter of God greatly desires to accomplish, even above life itself!

.

To let the world see Jesus!

“IN HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE, DAY & NIGHT!”

Psalm 1:2

And so, the Christian goes to work day and night to become transformed into Christ’s wonderful image, just like that little Puffer Fish works day and night, before the undersea tide can wash away his artistic creation!

“THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD”

Psalm 19:1

Well, nature is filled with many other undeniable clues that testify of our wonderful Creator!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:South-American_butterfly.jpg

.

And isn’t it amazing that our God is not an “in-your-face” God, but instead is content to remain in the background, allowing us to enthusiastically seek for and search for Him?

.

And this Puffer Fish artwork is just one more clue which God has given us!

“OH HOW LOVE I THY LAW! IT IS MY MEDITATION ALL THE DAY!”

Psalm 119:97

Of course, the Christian doesn’t need such clues.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

.

After all, every Believer has a personal relationship with Jesus, via His Word, which the Holy Spirit communicates into every Christian’s heart on a continuous and daily basis.

Nevertheless, the Bible tells us…

.

 

“But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee;

and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:

Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee:

and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.

Who knoweth not in all these

that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?

In whose hand is the soul of every living thing,

and the breath of all mankind.”

Job 12:7-10

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Give me the joy of knowing more about the wonders of nature. Help me to see, not only the beauty and poetry of nature, and the wisdom and law of nature, the joy of nature…and the many pictures of Love: God’s love in nature…and help me O God, to find the joy of health found in 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”)
