Really…? (Part 2)

Good Morning Brothers…

“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.”   Genesis 1:14-19

WOW….

“He stretches out the north over empty space 
And hangs the earth on nothing. 
“He wraps up the waters in His clouds, 
And the cloud does not burst under them. 
“He obscures the face of the full moon 
And spreads His cloud over it. 
“He has inscribed a circle on the surface of the waters 
At the boundary of light and darkness. 
“The pillars of heaven tremble 
And are amazed at His rebuke. 
“He quieted the sea with His power, 
And by His understanding He shattered Rahab. 
“By His breath the heavens are cleared; 
His hand has pierced the fleeing serpent. 
“Behold, these are the fringes of His ways; 
And how faint a word we hear of Him! 
But His mighty thunder, who can understand?”     Job 26: 7-14

Again, WOW…

“The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; 
Let the many islands be glad. 
Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; 
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. 
Fire goes before Him 
And burns up His adversaries round about. 
His lightnings lit up the world; 
The earth saw and trembled. 
The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, 
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. 
The heavens declare His righteousness, 
And all the peoples have seen His glory.”    Psalm 97: 1-6

I don’t know what else to say but…WOW

“But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.”       Matthew 24: 29-31

Our God designed and created this tapestry, called the expanse of the heavens. He then worked within that expanse to place the sun and moon. Before the expanse, He determined the direction of North without landmarks. In fact, without anything at all. He also took the earth and hung it on nothing…I suppose because there was nothing yet to hang it on…the expanse wasn’t created yet.  WOW…

His Glory is epic…His Power is paramount…His throne is built on a foundation of Righteousness and Justice…He is Master over all creation. The clouds cloak His Essence and announce His arrival…the strongholds of His creation humble themselves in homage to His Majesty…the sky’s offer welcome to His Presence and the winds rush off to do His bidding…HE IS GOD.

WOW…

Who am I……to question……the great I Am?

“Lord in Heaven…forgive me for applying my thoughts to your thoughts…forgive me for questioning…forgive me for doubting…forgive me my sinners heart…”
