A phrase that cannot be utilized (without the aid of a mocking stick) by evolutionists and atheists worldwide, is this 5 syllabled English combination of ‘lights and perfections.’ It just rolls off the tongue, more importantly though is WHERE this comes from. Of course it comes from heaven first, as God is light and His ways are perfect.
If people paid more attention to the concept of Light, there just may be a more harmonious outcome as to understanding the nature and purpose of Almighty God. He is light, and was light long before the sun was in diapers. Then there is that lesser light the moon, a bit demure but just as perfect, revealing more of the divine consistency of the Creator in all His glory. I will add that the sun gets waaaay too much credit for sharing the light duties of the moon, a task which it is really none of his business…..
Enter LIGHTning. Those brilliant flashes which serve as reminders, (so similar to the coming and going of the rainbow) which when followed by thunder, appeal to our attention, and arrest us immediately with silent pause, or, at least it should.
But no, we are not so shaken by the supernatural, for we lie to ourselves and say ‘it is only natural,’ and therefore miss entirely the message laid out in lavender and set before us. If rain is simple and natural, then lightning is supernatural, for it truly is super, then again, rain is equally super. Water falling from above, not in 4×8′ sheets, or by the ton, but in drops, yep, super!
Couple that with lightning flashes, scenes that reveal an open curtain for a split second, then the clouds do clap, with thunder so loud….causing the bones to rattle, while not considering how small man is, how entirely insignificant he is, and how he should fear correctly, get that, correctly, who man is, and who God is, who man isn’t, and who God always is. Standing in light should have that effect.
What is man, that God is mindful of him? Is he more significant than a maggot? Why, if the atheist treats all life as equal? Why, if the evolutionist says ‘amen’ when a lion will tear the head off an impala and then go to sleep, having done nothing wrong, while only to chastise a man for killing the same impala for food?
And why could the evolutionist or atheist btich when the lion kills a man? Survival of the fittest doncha know. The lights and perfections of God are not considered, therefore NO complaint is valid. None. Ever.
By the voice of the Lord the hinds do calve, (one of my favorite scriptural truths by the way) and nature pays attention to the supernatural. Light is recognizable whether it be in Tahiti or Timbuktu, whether it be in Jacksonville or Djibouti, and the Creator gives ample daylight to the nature of man to see and enjoy the perfections of God. In addition to the visual, there is much light in the audial, IF we have ears to hear.
Ever been on the high seas of the oceans feeling small? Ever been in the deepest of woods feeling small in the company of mighty oaks? Ever felt fearful in the most magnificent of storms? Maybe you should. But this fear is not the common ‘fear of spiders or rats,’ but a reverential fear, which could only come from the most sober of hearts, where pride is the most unwelcome of guests.
If you are a card carrying atheist, you are too proud to see that I am telling the truth, because it is not MY truth, but THE truth, for pride and light cannot peacefully co-exist.
Consider the Urim and the Thummin, and the bells upon the high priest’s hem; no place for the proud, for God is there. The lights and perfections of the twelve, the squared 144, and the nuances of God’s arithmetic, His very own perfections, since by the way, all Math is His creation.
A man cannot count to three without calling upon the truthfulness of Almighty God, so of course men cannot be trusted with things greater. God is good like this to remind us just how stupid we are: without Him.
A man dreams in Light, this inescapable fact that there is nowhere to hide: God is there. It has been said that man evolved to ‘need God,’ and will one day eradicate God from the conscience. Yeah, how’s that working out for you? Ever read the blogs of the godless who pretend God is dead? Their posts are riddled with lecture after lecture of HOW God is irrelevant, and how they have managed to rid God from their domain.
Yeah, how is that working for you? Not too good, because you can’t. Atheism and its bastard twin brother evolution are forever silenced by such blatant ignorance. If it were not for God, scripture and the truth of life, they would both go out of business and its goods would not sell at a flea market. But why? Because people do not pay for darkness, even if it’s discounted.
Do consider that light, that light which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
