>> listen as I read our text for today found in Romans 1: & 2: --
Rom.1:19-20 Because that which may be known of God is manifest (made known-revealed) in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Let's be sure and notice that we read here; (for God hath shewed it unto them.) this would include any and all people from all dispensations.
>> 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Every person of the human race from all time periods has had the testimony of the creation. Since God is the Creator means that He Himself was not created.
God's power is seen as eternal, so it had no beginning neither will it have an end, it accompanies God himself. The environmental condition of the world proves His eternal existence. The heavens and the earth prove the deity of their Originator.
By His word all things are held together. Even scientists have admitted there is something, some unseen power holding the universe together.
There is someone who placed everything in order and keeps it in order.
>>Psalm 147:15-18 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly. 16He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost ** like ashes. 17He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold? 18He sendeth out his word, and melteth them:** he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
>>Psalm 19:1-6 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
In other words, all mankind from all ages can see and understand that the heavens declare His handy work, no matter what language they might speak, it's evident that the Almighty God has made it this way.
God reveals Himself to man, man is without excuse, man can plainly see that there is a God, and he'll be judged according to the light he has or had during his life time on earth.
>>4-a - Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. --
Even the solar system declares the magnitude of the True and living God. The energy of a thousand suns is nothing compared to His divine power.
The perfect timing of planetary movements declares His precision. The firmament showeth his handiwork is only an expression of the most readily visible evidence of God's presence in the universe.
->>-4-b- In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,** (place) 5Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. The sun is set and always ready to continue it's coarse.
6His ** (sun) 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.
Notice, the suns CIRCUIT unto the ends of it, this tells us that God has placed the sun in an exact orbit, and it appear each and every morning right on time.
The Sun spins on its axis in a way similar to the Earth revolving to give us day and night. -- The Sun's rotation period is about 27 days. -- Planet Earth takes one year to revolve around the spinning Sun.
The heavens are described as a tabernacle for the sun. It is there that the sun is placed by God and appears too us to journeys as a mighty commander across the skies, it appears every morning as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, indicating that the sun bursts forth every day from the night chamber renewed afresh as in the strength of a youngster. His circuit unto the ends of it indicates that as the sun blazes in the sky, it finds no boundary from which its heat can not be felt.
Rom. 2: 11-15 For there is no respect of persons with God. 12For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: --
The gentiles have never been under the Mosaic Law, but if they have sinned, and all have, will perish without law. This will include all of mankind.
