Msg #1904 He Created the Stars Also

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night … for signs and for seasons.... he made the stars also” (Genesis 1:14,16b). Some Bible “scholars” stumble because God created light and days and nights before he created the sun and moon and planets, but the Bible student who trusts God's accounting here knows that God is light and finds this truth fascinating. Peering into a billion stars in our galaxy, causes some to stumble. The Hubble telescope made a majority stumble; our galaxy with its billion stars is only one of billions of galaxies! How could God so love the world when there are likely millions of others out there millions of light years away? Even when the Bible student knows that time, space, and matter all warp together into nothing but energy, E = mc2, and can read that God stretched out the finite stars in that finite space (Isa45:12), it gives us pause. In February of 1987 we photographed a star's supernova. It was 168,000 light years away. Even when God says that to him a thousand years is as a single day, light traveling through space for 168,000 years in a universe that is only 6,000 years old (God's word says so), is a stumbling block to faith. It begs the question, “Who are you going to trust?” When God confronted Job with his waning faith he said, “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?... Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? Canst thou set dominion thereof in the earth?” (Job 38:31,33). Finite minds will never know all the ways of an infinite God. Just learn to trust him, for without faith it is impossible to please him.
