God's marvellous moon! Its diameter is 400 times smaller than the sun, and the sun is 400 times further from us than the moon is. Which means that when the moon occasionally gets in just the right position between us and the sun, it exactly blots out the sun in a total eclipse. Wow times a million! Impossible! The statistical probability of that EVER happening in the vastness of space are off the chart. Not possible.
A new BBC program about the moon calls a total eclipse a 'cosmic coincidence'. Wrong again, BBC! Coincidence it ain't.
I've been looking at some moon info websites and blogs and it is clear that many people will accept a false conclusion because they do not and will not give God the glory for His wondrous creation.
Personally, I am just so glad, so very happy to know that God made the moon and everything else. Psalm 8 is sometimes called the 'Astronomer's Psalm'. Verse 3,4: 'When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars...What is man that You are mindful of him...'
How kind, loving, gracious God is; how careful to let us know the whole truth, how truly worthy of all our praise, gratitude, all our love.
To think that one day we will be with Him*, see Him, be able to thank and praise Him right there in the throne room of Heaven. He even tells us what that looks like! Just read the Book of Revelation Chapter 4. And He tells us in that very chapter what is being said in that throne room (verse 11):
'You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.'
That's pretty clear! God made the moon, BBC! Stop proclaiming lies!
*When I say 'we' will be with Him, I mean all of us who have accepted the Lord Jesus as our Savior, our sin bearer, our Redeemer, both God and man, the God-man who died at Calvary to pay the price of all our sins. Those who reject Jesus will not be in that majestic throne room. They are not singing the right song now and they will not be there then.
There will be no second chance after death. It is for man to die once, and then the judgement (Hebrews 9:27). The Lord Jesus told us there was a narrow way and a broad way to destruction. Few find the narrow way, and many choose the broad way.
How terribly tragic that is, but it is right and just. The great mystery to me is not who made the moon and everything else, but how a sinner like me somehow got on to that narrow way.
