Monday it was. August 21, 2017. Millions watched this incredible event in the heavens uttering sounds of glee, astonishment. But how many recognized that this amazing event is something only the Almighty God can do, for He created the heaven and the earth and all things! The heaven and earth declare His glory. The earth is His, for He made it, the hills and the seas…and all that is it and on it! He controls all things and brings about the rain and wind, thunder and lightening, tempest and great storms and crashing waves. Yes, even hurricanes, tornadoes and earth quakes, too. It is not ‘mother nature’ as some like to believe, but God the Almighty, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the LORD of heaven and earth! It is all of the Lord God. And if things like this cause you to look up and arrest your attention, why wouldn’t you give in awe your heartfelt praise and glory and thanks to Him. Even the pagans believed a solar eclipse was because the gods were unhappy with them.
GOD put all things in motion on the day He made them, and made it so that every ten years the Moon would pass between the earth and sun and causing darkness over the land for minutes. and people camped out awaiting this great event that captured the attention of the world. God knew millions would look up. What he sought was they would know this was only something God can do, and therefore, He would receive the praise and glory and worship…for great is the Lord God creator and sustainer of heaven and and earth and all things. To Him belong our praise and thanks and to Him belong glory, honor, power and might, now and forever.
The heaven and the earth declare His glory.
One day we shall look upon the earth from on high, for we shall meet the Lord Jesus Christ in the air above the clouds at the Rapture of the Church, the dead and living in Christ.
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, One God, Three in One, One in Three, the blessed and holy Trinity, forever and ever. Amen.i
