Understanding the Creator From Creation

Last week I began to just marvel at the complexity of creation. And then in my devotions I read this particular passage (Psalms 19:1-6). Biblical writers tell us we can infer something of the greatness of the creator in the wonders of the creation. I took science and biology just like all of you, but it wasn’t until Bible that I had a teacher who connected it to the Bible. In this message this morning I want to help you turn your science, biology, astronomy textbooks into books that sing the glory of God the creator. I can’t begin to cover the vast examples of this if I had 50 years, but I want to get you thinking in this fashion.

I Look to the Sky to See the Glory of the Creator Psalms 19:1-6

II Look to the Animal Kingdom to See the Glory of the Creator Job 12:7-9

III Look to Man to See the Glory of the Creator Psalms 139:14

I Look to the Sky to See the Glory of the Creator Psalms 19:1-6

★ Light from our own sun takes four and half years to get to the nearest star.

★ Light waves from the sun take about 8 minutes to reach the earth; that means each time you see the sun it is about 8 minutes old.

★ Neptune is the coldest place in the solar system with temperatures dropping to -236°C.

★ Summer on Uranus lasts for 21 years - but so does winter.

★ Unlike any of the other planets, Uranus does not spin at a slight angle. It is tilted right over, and rolls around the Sun like a giant bowling ball. In summer, the Sun does not set for 20 years.

★ Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system, and its surface is as barren as any desert on Earth. The build up of carbon dioxide gas in its atmosphere has created a runaway "greenhouses effect", trapping so much of the Sun’s heat that temperatures reach a scorching 470°C.

★ The Sun is a medium-sized star 1,392,000 km across - 100 times the diameter of the Earth.

★ Each day on the Moon lasts 360 hours.

Photosynthesis, process by which green plants and certain other organisms use the energy of light to convert carbon dioxide and water into the simple sugar glucose. In so doing, photosynthesis provides the basic energy source for virtually all organisms. An extremely important byproduct of photosynthesis is oxygen, on which most organisms depend.

The TIDES

Accompanying the vertical rise and fall of water are various horizontal or lateral movements commonly known as tidal currents or tidal streams, which are very different from the common ocean currents (see Ocean and Oceanography). In confined areas, a tidal current flows for about 6 hours, 12 minutes in an upstream or shoreward direction, corresponding to high tide; it then reverses and flows for approximately the same time in the opposite direction, corresponding to low tide.

Astronomy has a long tradition of practical results, such as our current understanding of the stars, day and night, the seasons, and the phases of the Moon.

Seeds after its own kind Genesis 1:11

11Then God said, "Let the land burst forth with every sort of grass and seed-bearing plant. And let there be trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. The seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came." And so it was. 12The land was filled with seed-bearing plants and trees, and their seeds produced plants and trees of like kind. And God saw that it was good.
