Ted Bowling, reflecting upon David's awe of the firmament in Psalm 8, a clear witness of the glory and existence of God from the beginning of time. Paradoxically, the self-evident revelation of the lawfulness and majesty of Creation has been denigrated to a Satanic inspired education system, high-jacking objective science, replacing it a science-falsely so-called (I Timothy 6:20-21.) In spite of Darwin's pathetic theory of evolution, several notable scientists including Isaac Newton, observing lawful planetary cycles, Werner von Braun, impressed with the order of Creation and the laws the govern rocket technology, and Matthew Murray, who demonstrated the lawful regularity of sea currents, all marveled at the Psalmist David's accurate scientific description millennia before technology verified these descriptions. David lived in a time -frame before the Hubbell Telescope expanded mankind's view of the galaxies and the electron microscope revealed 22 trillion cells in the human body. Along with David, we marvel, "What is man that you are mindful of him.
Mike Ford focuses on Ecclesiastes 11:7-8, proclaiming that light is sweet and that it is a pleasure to see the sun. Even though still don't know a lot about the nature of light, God has revealed its cause and symbolic meaning in His scriptures. Light symbolizes God, righteousness and purity, while darkness symbolizes ignorance, evil, and depression. With day comes perception and hope, darkness brings fear and despair. When darkness spreads its pall over people's minds, they mistakenly believe God does not see their sins. Satan, the adversary dedicated to destruction, is the ruler of darkness and death. The Apostle John repeatedly emphasizes that God is light, and in Him there is categorically no darkness at all. If we keep His Commandments, we are walking in the light. If we hate our brother or if we become enticed by the ways of the world, we are living in darkness. Satan disguises himself as an angel of light and provides bright—but deadly—lures to his dens of sin. In the New Jerusalem, the luminosity (symbolic of righteousness) of God the Father, Jesus Christ and His Bride will obviate the light of sun and moon. It behooves God's called-out ones to walk in the light of righteousness, keeping His laws and commandments. We must not let the pulls of the flesh and the world conceal the light we reflect as we walk in the light of His Truth.
