LOOK AT THE SKY

Looking up at night’s vast curtain of darkness, how can one not be aware that God is the Mighty Creator; aware of His mighty power? Still, millions of folks vehemently reject God as the Creator, but Psalm 19:1 declares that “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”

In His Holy Word, “…God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night;…… and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day (sun) and the lesser light to rule the night (moon): …… And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:14-17) So, let’s consider these lights.
 
SUN: It is estimated that the sun has a diameter of 870,000 miles, causing it to be 110 times the earth’s diameter. With that said, about one million earths could fit inside the sun. Much can be said about the sun but perhaps the most amazing fact is this. If Creation resulted from a gigantic explosion, how did the sun, as well as the moon and planets, emerge as nearly perfect orbs (sphere, ball, round, circle)? Explosions tear apart, scatter, destroy, and do not create exactness, nor working perfection. Only God can do that!

Read what Malachi, the Old Testament prophet, said about the sun. “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings…” (Malachi 4:2) The capitalized word Sun speaks of Jesus Christ who will come to a darkened world in the end-times. Folks, we are living in a world of spiritual darkness, so believers should be a light in this darkness by spreading the “light of knowledge of the glory of God” (II Corinthians 4:6). “…he that followeth me (Jesus) shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life (eternal salvation)”. (II Corinthians 4:6b)

STARS: In Genesis 1:16 we see that “…he (God) made the stars also.” Astronomers estimate there are trillions upon trillions of stars. But God knows exactly how many there are; He made them! He even named the stars. Could it be that as God created each star, He simultaneously named each one? (Psalm 147:4)
 
In Matthew 2:9 we read about the Star of Bethlehem which led the wise men to Jesus. Shouldn’t born-again believers shine for the Lord by leading others to Jesus?
MOON: The moon’s average distance from Earth is 238,855 miles, and its orbit circumference is 1,499,618.58 miles. When we realize the effect the moon has on our planet, how could the Big Bang Theory remotely explain how the moon continually influences the tides, or affects the seasons?
 
Ever heard of the Harvest Moon or the Frost Moon? Most moon names appear to be weather/season related: Snow Moon in February, the Flower Moon for May, etc. Although many moon names were assigned by native Americans, the Bible is quite clear about the reason for the moon. Psalm 104:19a plainly states that “He (God) appointed the moon for seasons:….” God’s schedule for every aspect of creation is fixed! As the moon shines because its surface reflects the sun’s light, born-again believers should reflect the light of the Son of God (Jesus Christ) in this perverse world! (Philippians 2:15b)
 
David said, “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou art mindful of him…? (Psalm 8:3,4) Because of our sin, God could have dismissed all humanity, but He didn’t! Instead, His loving mercy and grace for sinners (all of us) were revealed at Jesus’ death on Calvary’s cross and the empty tomb!

Look at the sky and marvel at God’s perfection. Look at the sky to view God’s power. LOOK AT THE SKY AND SEE GOD!
