Here We Go Again!

Genesis 1:14-18

When, in 2017, we had the eclipse of the sun and the moon, I wrote after hearing the ridiculous explanations given by the media as they tried to rule God out of what was happening. One ‘expert’ scientist was asked, “The sun is 400 times bigger than the moon, how then is it possible for the moon to totally block (or eclipse) the sun?” Then the learned, renowned scientist responded, “It just happened that the sun is equally 400 times farther from the earth than the moon.” I was so perplexed that I screamed inside me, ‘No, it didn’t just happen!”

We are having another eclipse this year. The news media has been talking about it for days or weeks. In North America, the Niagara Falls is one of the places where the eclipse will be total, meaning that the sun will be blocked by the moon and day will turn to night for about 3 minutes. The eclipse will occur on Monday April 8, and well ahead of the date, the Niagara region has proactively declared a State of Emergency because of the number of visitors they expect to flood the region. Put in numbers, about one million people are expected to visit the region just to site the eclipse for 3 minutes. When compared to 20,000, the average daily visitors, the region is expecting 48 times the normal volume, in one single day.

Wouldn’t one expect that seven years after the last incident, the scientists would have thought of the way they are explaining this mystery that they had no answer to? But no, they didn’t. I heard the usual question again, in the news media, how is the moon able to eclipse the sun? The answer this time around: “It’s just by the freak of nature.” Another commentator called it a “Fantastical celestial phenomenon.” As I listened to them, I asked, ‘Why don’t you just say God? Why do you guys hate the name so much? It’s God! God!!

If you are laughing at me for overemphasizing this, you’re not alone; I am laughing too, but I wish I could just shout it to the television studios that this is God’s master architectural design. As I quoted when I wrote in 2017, look at what the Bible says in Genesis 1:14-18:

Then God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

In this passage, the Bible says God made two great lights: the greater light (sun – 400 times bigger) to rule the day, and the lesser light (moon – 400 times closer) to rule the night. This is the recorded account of how these lights were made, so why can’t the scientists just accept that they lost? This is so clear: 400 times bigger, 400 times farther. Is this not geometry? Sorry I’m not a mathematician, but why do they fail to acknowledge the real, documented truth and always run to chance or nature when the centuries of scientific studies still have no explanation to what was spiritually designed?

No worries. An adage says it could take 100 years for a lie to run, but the truth needs only one day to catch up with it. The world may fight the Word of God all they can. They may deny the truth for as long as they want. They may promote their faulty theories and postulate their erroneous hypotheses for centuries. They may write books to deceive people and become New York Times best sellers. They may make all their living through fallacies and conspiracy theories all they want. Yet, the Bible in Psalm 14:1 says those who deny the existence of God are fools. They are corrupt and have done abominable works.

Fact: in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. God created the things that we refer to as nature, and He created living beings, including us. God is supreme, can say and unsay, can do and undo. He is above, and He who is above is above all (John 3:31). Struggling with Him is futile and arguing with Him is nonsensical. The foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:25). Romans 1:28 says those who refuse to retain God in their knowledge, God gave over to a debased mind. If you see anyone who screams nature to the eclipse on Monday, just scream back to them, God. That’s the explanation. That’s the Truth.

 If you are yet to give your life to Christ, you do not have a covenant with God and His promises do not apply to you. To come under these promises, please surrender your life to Christ today, by praying this prayer:
 Lord I know that I am a sinner and I am unable to save myself. I am sorry for my sins and I pray that you please forgive me. I am aware that Your Son Jesus died for my sins and I accept Him as my Lord and savior. I surrender my life unto you from this moment. Please take control of my entire being and help me to be obedient to your Word, going forward. Thank you, Lord, for hearing me. I have prayed in Jesus’ name. Amen.
 If you prayed the foregoing prayer, you have just been born again. Please find a Bible believing church in your area and ask to see the pastor. Let him or her know that you have just given your life to Christ and s/he will guide you on next steps in your journey as a child of God. The Lord bless you!
