Job 25: God over all…


“Dominion and awe belong to God; he establishes order in the heights of heaven. Can his forces be numbered? On whom does his light not rise? How then can a mortal be righteous before God? How can one born of woman be pure? If even the moon is not bright and the stars are not pure in his eyes, how much less a mortal, who is but a maggot— a human being, who is only a worm!”

God is over all. All things belong to Him, and nothing exists that He didn’t make. All worship and glory belong to Him. All authority and power and dominion is His and His armies out number all else. No one can stand against His power or presence.

If we see the light of day, it is His light. There is no other light but His light. That one fact should prompt us to seek Him, and escape our souls night. To stand before Him unforgiven, in the certainty of His presence will prove to us why he is to be feared. We dare not risk that possibility.

How can such sinners like us be made righteous.?
How will we be able to face this God?
How will we excuse our sin and hide from the wrath to come?

All humans are in the same situation. We all share in the chain of human sinfulness and the moral disease is passed to us right from the start of our existence.

The beauty of the stars in the heavens, are tainted with the disease that affects all of the creation. The moon, which gives light in the darkness of night, is in itself, contaminated by the laws of decay and motion. The whole system is winding down and one day will stop when the creator decides that time is done.

How will we then stand?
