It is I who by my great power and my outstretched arm have made the earth, with the men and animals that are on the earth, and I give it to whomever it seems right to me. —Jeremiah 27:5
Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the Lord of hosts is his name: “If this fixed order departs from before me, declares the Lord, then shall the offspring of Israel cease from being a nation before me forever.” Thus says the Lord: “If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be explored, then I will cast off all the offspring of Israel for all that they have done, declares the Lord.” —Jeremiah 31:35-37
Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you. —Jeremiah 32:17
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me? —Jeremiah 32:27
As the host of heaven cannot be numbered and the sands of the sea cannot be measured, so I will multiply the offspring of David my servant, and the Levitical priests who minister to me. — Jeremiah 33:22
I have read that with the unaided eye you can see 3,000 stars at night and one estimate of how many stars there are stands at 40,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 while another source says there are 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars. I also read that it is estimated there are 7,500,000,000,000,000,000 grains of sand on the beaches of the earth. Someone has said it is “more likely there are 5 to 10 times more stars than there are grains of sand on all the world’s beaches.
Wow, those are big numbers, but they are only estimates. There are some things man cannot do. According to what is stated in the verses above we are told that “the host of heaven cannot be numbered and the sands of the sea cannot be measured” (Jeremiah 33:22). Then in Jeremiah 31:35-37 we are told that “If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be explored, then I will cast off all the offspring of Israel for all that they have done, declares the Lord.” According to this verse man will not be able to measure the heavens nor will man even be able to explore the “foundations of the earth.” If he is able to do so then Israel as a nation of people will no longer exist. Man does have his limitations and we are utterly tiny in this creative order! We also learned that there is a fixed order for the Sun, moon and stars and if that ceases then Israel will cease as a nation of people.
These are amazing statements as the history of the Jewish people is considered. Today they are under regular attack by those who would like to exterminate them as a people. Hitler wanted to do the same. They were not in their homeland for multitudes of years and then were brought back to their homeland and became a nation in 1948. Surely God’s Word stands and all the hocus pocus nonsense of the doomsayers who are called scientists, or politicians, who deny His Word will be seen to be false in the end. His plan will come to pass in His time, not man’s! His Word will stand sure!
Dear Father, Your creation is astounding and I truly stand amazed at Who You are!
