Msg #2337 In the Beginning God, Day 4 - Wednesday
What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
As the fourth day of this universe dawned there was no sun, moon, or stars to divide the day from the night. There was a singular, solitary “planet”, the focus of all of God's creative energies, which hung upon nothing and orbited nothing. Holy, inspired, inerrant Scripture, preserved for 3,500 years now, reports, “He stretches out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing” (Job 26:7).
On this first Wednesday, “God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: … And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth” (Gen.1:14,17). The “lesser light to rule the night” could capture our attention. God created seven planets set in orbit around the sun, and our moon set in orbit around our Earth. The Earth took its place in the third orbit, and lesser minds that care, remember planet names in the sentence, “Mary's Velvet Eyes Make John Stay Up Nights … Proposing. (Proposing was determined to be a dwarf cluster of rocks and lost its standing, i e truly there were seven “other” planets in God's Wednesday creation.)
The orbiting planets are in a plane, still hung upon nothing, and North still stretches out over the empty place. Uranus takes 84 years to orbit the Sun and spins backward because God has a global sense of humor. Neptune has a “year” that is 165 Earth years long, and was proven to exist mathematically before it was seen in a very large telescope. Five planets are visible with the naked eye. Before the invention of TV mankind watched them at night. Venus is called a Morning-Star.
