About Our God Part2
In our last episode, as prophesied in Matthew 20: 19… ‘they handed Him over to the gentiles, to be mocked, scourged, and crucified. Then on the 3rd day, He would be raised up from the grave’… and He certainly was. Now it was man’s opportunity to share the Gospel with both Jews and Gentiles. The Good News would encourage God’s children to stop living under the Law, and start living by God’s Grace; where a man could finally receive forgiveness of his sins, the gift-of-salvation, and be granted eternal life.
The challenge… they would need to put aside their former sinful living, and avoid anyone who practiced evil. I believe that God and His Son Jesus are exactly who They claim to be; unique Sovereigns that possess the power to create Life and literally speak things into existence.
Have you ever wondered what God does during the day? Jesus is running the day-to-day here on Earth and the Holy Spirit is guiding and directing believers; so, what’s left; actually, quite a lot. The Universe is a very large place… and there’s no question that it takes a lot of effort to keep everything moving forward and on course. To accomplish this, I believe that God’s language is Mathematics… and why is that? Without the application of advanced mathematics, nothing in the Universe would work properly; it would likely be a Hodgepodge of matter and space; kind of like the earth was before God organized it.
Let’s look at our solar system. Our sun is at the center, with a collection of 9 planets, and a collection of moons, comets, asteroids, lots of rocks, and some space junk. This entire system maintains its own orbit within our Galaxy, the Milky Way. Now while these planets maintain their respective positions to each other; rotating and spinning in space; they eventually return to their starting position, some in only a few months like Mercury, and some like Pluto, that take many earth years to complete a single revolution around the sun.
We know this to be true, as we can clearly observe the evidence through telescopes. So, who do we think keeps this astronomical circus moving in perfect unison, and at speeds that boggle the human mind?
We live on a planet that is perfectly positioned from the sun, in order to sustain human and animal life; an average size planet that is mostly water and approx.; and 25,000 miles in circumference, spinning at 1,000 miles per hour. You would think that centrifugal force would easily throw us out into space. But no, we are able to function in a perfectly comfortable environment.
In order to accomplish what I have just described, someone would need to have an intimate knowledge of advanced mathematics, and also possess the Power, Knowledge, and Understanding to keep everything moving in its proper order. I believe that this someone is none other than the God-of-Heaven that we worship. Any other conclusion seems foolish by comparison, as they cannot be supported by anything but theories.
So, when someone tells you that the universe began with a ‘Big Bang’, kindly remind them that when big bangs occur on earth, everything blows up; it never organizes anything.
