vs 1 God is Real. He has manifested His presence in the universe to every creature through His work of Creation. “Glory of God” – Only God could conceive of and impliment such a wondrous, complex, precious, and beautiful “machine” as Creation. He demonstrates His Glory in His Creation. Examine just one creature, animal or plant; consider one law of science or one molecule of water.
“The Heavens” are plural – more than one. Outer space shows God’s Glory in that only a magnificient King of the Universe could bring such a diverse and power-filled, terrifying structure onto existance. Now ponder that it is so unsearchably vast that we cannot even comprehend its ends (good description of God!), and He continuously keeps it all operational and working together to keep Earth hanging here, a precisly positioned speck in this enormous big empty.
In God’s creation of Outer Space, God gives us a glimpse of Who He is. In man’s “exploration” of space, there is so much we cannot begin to comprehend – just like our understanding of God. We are impeded in our ability to go to what we want to see, and have to peer, squinting, through a telescope, to catch a glimpse of something we try to explain – just like God (only some try to “explain away” God.) We have often misunderstood what we’ve discovered, and our findings led to erroneous conclusions that later and through further observation had to be amended, so we align with truth (at least we should do this.) Space is “different” from Earth. No need of air or water, no night or day, no up or down, sometimes no gravity, sometimes a whole lot! Space operates on a plane very alien (sorry for the pun) to what we take for granted or know “to be real” on earth – just like God. Space is so big and powerful that it is not affected by the things of Earth. The fiercest storms, fires, wars, have no bearing and no effect to alter the operations of Space: it stays the same. These earthly maladies affect God, but He stays the same, nothing can alter Him.
