Fallen men consider the creation account in the Bible as a myth. At the same time, the Big Bang Theory and Evolution are recognized as science which scientists cannot demonstrate nor prove to be true. Whether the Bible account of creation or fallen men’s theory concerning this universe, both require faith to hold fast to one such model.
According to the psalmist, he wrote about the universe praising and giving glory to the God of Creation. It is impossible for Big Bang Theory proponents and Evolutionists to attribute any praise and thanksgiving to their invisible and non existent creator while they live under the mercies of the Creator God who gives them life and breath until they are taken away from this world. Psalm 19 illustrates the beautiful exaltation of God’s creation rejoicing before the Creator God who brings forth life in this universe.
Psalms 19:1: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Psalms 19:2: Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
Psalms 19:3: There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Psalms 19:4: Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
Psalms 19:5: Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
Psalms 19:6: His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
Of course Bible critics and skeptics as well as pseudo scientists will dismiss such writings as a creative description of the universe according to the myth of Judaism and Christianity. Writings as such can be allowed under poetic license of the writer just like any other literature here on earth. Sadly, even among those who believe the Holy Book, some would not take such writings literally. Only some devotional and spiritual applications should be derived from them they so insist.
But the psalmist was dead serious. He wasn’t kidding when he wrote Psalm 19 where God’s creation could talk whether fallen men could understand their speech. Fallen men are not spiritually tuned so the Holy Bible is a myth to them. The psalmist went further to command God’s creatures whether on earth or in heaven to praise God.
Psalms 148:1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
Psalms 148:2: Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
Psalms 148:3: Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
Psalms 148:4: Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
Psalms 148:5: Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.
Psalms 148:6: He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
Psalms 148:7: Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
Psalms 148:8: Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word:
Psalms 148:9: Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
Psalms 148:10: Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
Psalms 148:11: Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
Psalms 148:12: Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
Psalms 148:13: Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
Psalms 148:14: He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.
The psalmist was under no illusion that God’s creature and creation not only could talk, they could praise God too. But such privilege of knowing God’s creation could talk is not given to those who hate God and reject His revelation given to this world in the Holy Bible. The Holy Bible is full of incidents where the earth could talk.
The first incident occurred after Cain killed his brother Abel. When God confronted Cain, it was mentioned that blood could cry from the ground.
Genesis 4:10: And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
It was God Himself who made that claim and not some man high on drugs made that suggestion. It was God who heard Abel’s blood crying from the ground. The language of the blood crying out from the ground might not be a known form of human language but God certainly got the message. How could God who created this world not given His creatures ability to feedback to Him!
During the rebellion at the Tower of Babel, God confounded the language of men. Notwithstanding men could still talk to one another in their own language. Not only talking with each other, some believe elements on earth could record events and bear witness to incidents that happen on earth. When call upon to testify, the earth could of course talk.
The quarrel between Jacob and his father-in-law Laban comes to mind here. Continue reading The Talking Earth
