    I was asked the above question today by email. Below is my answer:

    Psalm 19 (NIV)

    For the director of music. A psalm of David.

    1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
    2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
    3 They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
    4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.

    God is telling us that the heavens declare the truth, which is to His glory.

    If we study the heavens with humility, and seeking truth, God will reveal truth to us. Anyone should be able to reason that the heavens and the earth was not a random happening. Men have sought the truth and it was revealed the the universe had a beginning ( men call it the Big Bang) Anyone wanting to know the truth should be able to see that if the universe had a beginning then it had to have a Beginner.

    This also tells us that God’s creation and His Holy Scriptures agree and do not disagree. If someone interprets a passage of the Bible one way and the creation reveals something else, then the interpretation is wrong.

    Also the first revelation of God ,and from God, was His creation. The Bible came later. Both are Holy.

    Here is an example. Our solar system has ONE star, The Sun. This reveals that life can only take place on a system with one star, because their is One God. Many have come to accept this truth by now. Most systems have two, three or four stars. The planets orbit around these stars and the temperature on the planets varies a lot. When they are close to a star in the system the planet is hot and when they are far way the planet is very cold. There is One God and life can only take place in a system with one star.

    This is revealed in this Psalm:

    In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
    5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
    6 It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

    Here the Lord reveals that the Sun is type of Christ. There is one God, Jesus, and one Sun reveals that there is One an Only One God.

    But there is only life on the third planet from the Sun. This reveals that one must trust in the Father, and trust in what the Father did when He came down from heaven and was born of a woman to become one of us to die for our sins. We have to trust is what the only begotten Son of God did for us. The Godhood of Jesus was the Everlasting Father, the Manhood of Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. But we must also confess our sin and give our life over to God. He then comes to live in our spirit as His Holy Spirit. There is One and Only One God, but He appears to us in three forms; The Father, The Son, and His Holy Spirit. But God is not three, but One.

    The earth is the only planet with life and the only planet with one and only one moon. Mercury and Venus have no moon and no life. Mars has two moons and no life. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune and all many moons and no life. Pluto is a twin planet and has more then one moon and no life.

    Also the moon of the earth is the largest compared to the size of the moon’s planet. This reveals there is one and only one body of Christ. More than one church, no life. No body of Christ, then no life.

    The moon has no light of it’s own but reflects the light from the Sun to the world (earth). The Body of Christ has no light of it’s own but reflects the light from Christ to the world.

    There are four elementary forces in the universe, just as there are four natures of God revealed by the four gospels and the four creatures in Ezekiel and the Revelation.

    The “meekest” force, or the weakest force, is the force that dominates the universe. Gravity is the force that brings everything together. The creature with the face of a man also is the highest nature of God. This is revealed in the passage below. Of course Jesus was God but also a Man. As a man he is a little lower than the angles. How meek for God to become a man.

    Philippians 2

    5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

    6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
    7 rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
    8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
    even death on a cross!

    9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,

    10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
    11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

    Jesus was meek and humble and the Servant of man. He revealed the very highest nature of God to man.

    This passage agrees with Psalm 19:

    1 Cor 15

    If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.

    We see here that the natural world is a sign of the coming spiritual heaven.
