The authority and the power of God.
Tuesday, January 1, 2002
We need to have a right understanding of the essence of God and our Lord as the all-powerful one, having all authority.
Was Job present at the creation of planet earth when the authority and the power of Almighty God was present?
Can Job rotate planet earth on its axis and produce a sequence of day and night?
Does Job know anything about death and can Job guarantee the function of the so-called scientific laws regarding weather?
Can Job handle the universe outside of planet earth?
Can Job operate the laws of meteorology, directing wind, rain, and thunderstorms?
GEN 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
HEB 1:3 “And He [Jesus Christ] upholds all things by the word of His power.”
Every discovery of the pattern of the universe is a treatise on the faithfulness of Jesus Christ – who at the present time is guaranteeing the function of every bona fide scientific law, COL 1:17; HEB 13:8.
Christ is holding the universe together to resolve the angelic conflict in human history and bring many sons into glory, HEB 2:10.
The day the sun stood still for Joshua in battle, JOS 10:12-13.
The Word of God will survive the destruction of the universe, as will the believer in resurrection body, HEB 12:26-28.
Scientific laws are the faithfulness of Jesus Christ holding the universe together and holding back eternity so the human race will have the opportunity to appropriate the grace of God, and ultimately God will be glorified forever.
