Psalms 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech
, and night unto night showeth knowledge.
WHY I SPEAK
The Lord will receive my prayer. (Psalms 6:9). Knowing the truth of this, how, then, can I remain silent?
GOD'S WORD WILL NEVER FAIL
GOD'S WORD EXPLAINS HIS WORK
Psalms 19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.
Psalms 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.
Psalms 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Psalms 19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
Psalms 19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
Psalms 19:6 His 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.
"DAY UNTO DAY UTTERETH SPEECH" Discussion I
What does the day say over and over? It says see the power of the sun, "the bridegroom." Can there be any doubt as to the identity of the sun? He is the "Sun of righteousness" (Malachi 4:2), JESUS CHRIST. What does HE do? "Rejoices as a strong man to run a race ." Whose race? My race. He ran it for me. (Psalms 4:7). Paul says we should run the race set before us. Here is HOW to run. Where does He go? " His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it "
Is this not the Alpha and the Omega? Why does the "day " speak? He is present and we have no need to be taught, he "speaks." He needs no representative. He himself "speaks ." He speaks with the day. Why do we not seek Him diligently in His Word? Listen to His voice. What else must He say for you to hear?
"NIGHT UNTO NIGHT SHOWETH KNOWLEDGE" Discussion II
Why? Knowledge is ABOUT Him, because He is absent. What does the night say ABOUT Him? "When I consider the heavens the WORK of THY FINGERS, the moon and the stars." (Psalms 8:3) Notice that the moon and the stars are His work. The moon is the body of believers because it REFLECTS the "Light of the World," JESUS. The moon reflects while it is dark. The world is now in "darkness." The moon is not "of the world" but is seen "in the world." Jesus said, "I will build my church" and "The LORD added to the church." Admission to the body is accomplished by HIM. Now, on any two consecutive nights the moon never reflects the SAME amount of LIGHT. This is because the believers sometimes "walk in the light," sometimes they do not. If God's Word is so accurate, how can we continue to refuse to HEAR it? Walk in the light. We are PROUD and God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.
THE NIGHT SKY "SHOWETH His HandyWORK" Discussion III
The firmament has the stars. Abraham was told that his seed would be "as the stars of heaven." "We are HIS workmanship (handywork)" Ephesians 2:10. So, the stars are the individual believers. (He knows the stars too BY NAME). Now, the individual believers are " begat with the Word of Truth." (James 1:18). We know that " by the Word of the LORD were the heavens made." (Psalms 33:6). When we walk in the light the LORD causes us to "declare the glory of God ." (Psalms 19:1) as also do the heavens. " We will shew forth thy praise to all generations." (Psalms 79:13) " The LORD be magnified ." (Psalm 40:16) If we are glad in ourselves, we can NEVER say this. SEEK HIM with your whole heart. Rejoice in HIM. LOVE His salvation.
"For THOU, LORD, has made me glad through THY WORK: I will triumph in the works of THY HANDS." (Psalms 92:4)
See how His Fingers (Psm 8:3) and His Hands work? Handywork = work of Hands. Receive Him.
"THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD" Discussion IV
Who is the Glory? Jesus Christ is the LORD of GLORY. (I Cor 2:8). This wisdom is ordained by God "unto OUR glory." (I Cor 2:7) Now go back and read Psm 8:3 and Ephesians 2:10 again. Now did HE or did HE not ORDAIN BOTH us and the stars to declare His Glory? Can there be any doubt? How long will "your faith stand in the wisdom of men [not] in the POWER of God? (i Cor 2:5) How much of His Handywork must we see before we repent of our own ways and SEEK HIM? Is He not great and wonderful? Taste His Words.
Though the world is in darkness "The DAY STAR [has] ARISE[n] in [MY] HEART " Discussion V
It is night. The whole world lieth in wickedness and in darkness. But, "a more sure Word of prophecy; whereunto YOU do well that YOU TAKE HEED, as a LIGHT that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the DAY STAR ARISE in YOUR hearts." (II Pet 2:19). Jesus is the " bright and morningstar." (Rev 22:16) Because I was made "conformable unto His death" (Phil 3:10) I see the " shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day ." (Prov 4:18) To be made "conformable unto His death ," ALL of your SELF must DIE. (John 12:24) Yourself includes ALL your virtues. Can anyone deny that you will become a seed if you DIE? (Math 13:38). CEASE from your own works and enter into HIS REST. (Heb 5:10) Remember, WHOSE "HANDYWORK" is ALL these things? Not ours. Do you not understand the meaning of the word CEASE? "In THY Light shall we see Light." (Psm 36:9). Do you see :"Light?" If you are in HIS LIGHT will you see? Well, then, where ARE YOU now? If you seek HIM, "continue in my WORD and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free ." (John 8:31-32)
"In Them Hath He Set a Tabernacle for the Sun" Discussion VI
The "Sun of Righteousness" lives in us and it is HIS WORK in US that makes us praise His Name. He "tabernacles" in "them ."
Can anything be more true or more beautiful? How "EVERY WORD of GOD is PURE!!" (Prov 30:5)
"Their LINE is Gone OUT Through ALL the Earth" Discussion VII
His Handywork is in a LINE. An observable (by the WHOLE earth, all speeches and languages, i.e., all nations have seen the LINE and agree that the LINE exists) LINE. They even agree on the content of the LINE. The deep things belong unto the LORD our God. Is all this too DEEP? Yes, indeed it is too deep. "Deep calleth unto deep ..." the more you taste of the LORD, the sweeter are His Words. " The Lord...command(s) his lovingkindness in the DAY time, and in the NIGHT his SONG shall be with me." (Psalms 42:7-8) his love is NOT an attribute. It is the LORD Himself. He is with me at night because I sing His praise. Do not the stars sing His praise? When the " cornerstone " was laid (Job 38:6) the " morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy ." (Job 38:7) The LINE is declared in this chapter, but let's first look at His POWER to see what the LINE is saying.
"for the Invisible Things: POWER and GODHEAD are SEEN in the CREATION" Discussion VIII
Romans 1:20 "For the invisible things of Him from the CREATION...are CLEARLY SEEN (how?) by the things that are made; (what invisible things?) even His POWER and GODHEAD." God's Word is not careless, casual, approximate, paraphrase, just ideas; but, is " PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT, PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT, LINE UPON LINE, LINE UPON LINE, here a little, there a little." (Isa 28:10) What is the LINE that goes throughout the Bible? It is declared by God Himself: "the GOSPEL of CHRIST; for it is the POWER of God unto salvation ." (Romans 1:16). The LINE throughout the Bible is CHRIST.
So, we see that his POWER is the GOSPEL. What is the gospel? (I Cor 15:1-4) "Christ died for our sins, was buried, rose the third day, according to the scriptures." Throughout the Bible. Christ, (His Work and His Person) is the grand theme. Christ was in the garden of Eden- "Let US make man in OUR image." When Adam sinned, the Lord clothed them with skins (pointing to sacrifice). The great SEED prophecy of Gen 3:15 state that the seed of the woman shall bruise the head of the serpent and the seed of the serpent shall bruise the HEEL of the woman's seed. Who is the seed of the woman? CHrist, of course, the "seed" of Abraham in whom all the nations will be blessed, is the promised seed. Where was the seed "bruised?" On the cross (in His heel). When is the serpent's head to be bruised? When Christ returns in glory to set up His Kingdom on earth. ALL things hinge on His GOSPEL. "Now is the judgment of this world ." (John 12:31).
But, HOW does the CREATION show the Gospel (His POWER)?
The Stars and Their LINE Discussion IX
Remember, "their LINE has gone through all the earth." (Psalm 19:4) Who is THEIR of " their LINE has gone?"
Their is "the heavens" and "the handywork." What is the "handywork" in the "heavens?" We have already shown that (Discussion III) that the stars (representing the believers) are the handywork. Well, what is the LINE of the stars?
Turn to Job 38 where we saw earlier "the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy." (31st verse)
"canst thou bind the sweet influences of the Pleiades or losse the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst thous guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest thou the ordinances of the heaven?"
It is believed by some astronomers that the star Alcyone is the center of the universe, about which all moves. What is the brightest star of the Pleiades? - Alcyone. Can there be a "sweet(er) influence ?" Some say that Earth, for example, is on a 25,827 year orbit about Alycone. Alcyone is 20 times the diameter of the sun and 1400 times brighter than the sun. Greek mythology says that Alycone was a maid who bore a son from the influence of a "god." Sound familiar? Further there are 5 (FIVE) stars associated with Alcyone. In regards to these 5 stars, read about this . This could represent God's intended purpose of redemption on earth.
Could the Lord have announced his plan of salvation in 2170BC on an "altar" in Egypt?
By the way, can YOU "bind" the sweet influences of the Pleiades? In other words, can you STOP the universe from rotating about its center point? Turn to Genesis 1:14. "And God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days, and years ." Every elementary school science student knows the season, days, and years. But, what are the SIGNS? SIGNS are symbolic statements made beyond the immediate nature and circumstances of an entity. A sign saying Public Park is not itself a place to picnic. The sign points to there being such a place.
Now, then, the stars are SIGNS making a statement. What is Orion? (a constellation) Arcturus? (Ursa Major). The Pleiades is the chief point of Taurus. "The chambers of the south" (Job 9:9) are said to be Scorpio. What is the serpent of Job 26:13 but the vast constellation of Hydra?
Can YOU bring forth Mazzaroth? God can. Mazzaroth comes by God's work. Mazzaroth is seasonal. What is Mazzaroth? Mazzaroth is the seasonal procession of the constellation. Lookup Mazzaroth in any good concordance. Then, the Mazzaroth are Zodiacal signs . Now, Satan has perverted the signs to confuse you. Satan does not want you to know Christ is in the stars. Satan is "against the KNOWLEDGE of God." (ii Cor 10:5) Satan wants you to believe in RELIGION and SELF. In fact, the religion of Astrology teaches that Aries is the first constellation. This is an error. The first constellation is VIRGO (virgin with seed).
Remember, Genesis 3:15 (the seed of the woman). This also makes LEO (the LION of the tribe of Judah) the last of the twelve constellations. The LION is the conquering, victorious KING, Christ's finishing work. Can anything be more precise than this? Read on. The young immature male lion is actually run out of the pride and rejected. In fact, when the male lion reaches maturity, one day he suddenly roars in from his journey alone to TAKE OVER the pride and no one can resist his reign.
Why are the Mazzaroth and all other references to the constellations placed in the book of Job? According to historians Job lived approximately 2000 BC (before Abraham). Now, where was the beginning of the practice of astrological religion of Satan? It was Nimrod's work in the tower of Babel. See Genesis 10:8-10. All nations were of one language in approximately 2247 BC, when God created separate languages and dispersed the nations.
Job apparently had great knowledge, because how else would he have been humbled by the LORD's question concerning the Pleiades if Job did not know what the Pleiades was? Why would Job "abhor" himself if he did not understand God's questions? God's questions were designed to compare Job (a man) with God Himself. So, Job's understanding of the stars may have ante dated Nimrod's perversion (astrology).
Why in the book of Job does it say (Job 11:6) "the secrets of wisdom are DOUBLE to that which is." Is it because God's heavenly creation has a dual purpose?

The GODHEAD Seen in Creation Discussion XI
We have already seen that his POWER (the Gospel) (i Cor 15:1-4) is seen in the stars and the moon (the heavenly things). Now, let's look at HIS GODHEAD. "the invisible things of HIM from the creation...are clearly seen, by the things that are made; even His eternal POWER (Rom 1:16) and GODHEAD."
Now Christ is "the fullness of the GODHEAD bodily." Hear His voice!
Cry out to Him!
Both the creation and the GODHEAD are 3 in 1.
TIME is 3 in 1
SPACE is 3 in 1
MATTER is 3 in 1
The heavens show us God's POWER unto SALVATION (Romans 1:16), Jesus Christ and His work of redemption. The GODHEAD is manifested in all of creation.
