“I will tell you great and unsearchable things”
We have entered the end-time age when scientists are making discoveries at a faster rate than in all other
time periods combined. Two planets the same size as Earth have been uncovered outside of our solar
system 1000 light years away. They are orbiting around an ancient star and until now we haven’t had the
equipment to enable us to acquire such knowledge. Their names are KOI 55.01 and KOI 55.02.
Not very personalized, but scientifically appropriate I suppose
The conditions on these planets might be conducive to some sort of life and the scientific quest of course
is that they might be able to ascertain what kind, if any. Science is advancing faster and better, but
we will never know what makes our universe function aside from understanding that all things created are
by the hand of God. Even if in their arrogance some don’t choose to admit it, it all boils down to the human
condition wanting to know its Creator.
Scripture emphatically tells us that certain things are “unsearchable.” In other words, we can spin our wheels
all we want, but the answers will only come as God allows and if God allows, and trying to determine what
makes it all tick without consulting God is futile.
There has always been a degree of ethereal speculation on the part of human beings; that inner knowing of
the presence and omniscience of God. If we return to the sacred pages, the ones which by faith we believe
to be the Word of God, we find that God’s children found a way to draw near to their Creator. Accompanied
by bells and cymbals they “raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang” (II Chronicles 5:13,14) “and the
glory of the Lord filled the temple.” In other words, by setting their minds and hearts to praising God rather
than researching Him, God drew near to them. God even dwelt among them.
Scripture advises that “on that day God’s name will be the only name.” (Zechariah 14:9) After all is said and
done, every being will not only appreciate the sovereignty of God, but they will either bow down and worship
the Most Holy One with all that is within them, or they will get flung into the pit of eternal damnation - outer
darkness without ever knowing the unspeakable glory which could have been theirs.
Ring the bells and let the whole world know! We have a Savior, Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son,
who was born in a manger long ago and destined to die on a cross and rise again so that we might have
eternal life with the very God scientists so diligently search for.
Emanuel. God surely dwells in the midst of the praises of His people.
