Psalm 19 is such a sweet Psalm. It starts out with the heavens declaring the glory of God and the sky, His handiwork. It ends with a prayer to let our words and our heart be pleasing to the Lord. But what I see in the middle has to do with the last days.

This Word is saying that the handiwork of God is our proof that God exists and we should pay attention to everything that He has made. He has put meaning behind it all, to draw us to Himself. How can you look up at night and see the brightness of the stars and not feel close to Him? He made it all for us to show us just how wonderful He is.

His glory is saying that there is no end to His beauty and love. He is abundant in all things. He deserves all of our respect, praise, honor and love. He has made it easy for mankind to look at all of creation and know beyond a doubt that a supreme being had to create something so complex.

How then did man do the opposite and dream up the “Big Bang Theory?” I remember hearing the story of a teacher in a Christian College saying: There was Solar System that someone had made, hanging in the room. Someone asked, “Who made it?” The teacher said, “no one, it just happened.”

Now how silly does that sound? Yet how many believe that theory, instead of believing in a Most Wonderful Creator? It would take more faith to believe something as awesome as creation was an explosion.

Verse 3 says the stars have no voice and yet they speak until the end of the world. Verses 4-6 are about the coming of the Bridegroom. He rejoices as He comes out of His chamber to run His course. His coming is as the end of heaven and no one is hidden from the heat of it.

Isaiah 13:3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called My mighty ones, for Mine anger, even them that rejoice in My Highness.

Isaiah 13:4 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of His indignation, to destroy the whole earth.

Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in His going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. KJV

In verse 3, I believe the Lord is talking about the dead in Christ. They are sanctified and are worshipping before Him. I believe the mighty ones are His angels. These are the troops of heaven who come with Him on white horses, (Rev. 19:14). They come from the end of heaven. What else could that mean? He said He would create a new heaven and earth. An that is just what He is doing.

The sun, the moon, the stars, and constellations, meaning all the planets and the host of heaven is coming to an end. They are darkened at His coming forth. He will punish the world for their evil and the earth will be shaken out of its place. Is. 13:10,11,13

His coming is sure and soon to come. The rest of Psalm 19 tells us the fear of the Lord is clean and enduring forever. If we truly believe He has created all this beauty for us, we must also believe that He is righteous and just.

If we love Him we will rejoice with Him. We will see the good that is coming. We will be ready to give Him the glory and honor He deserves!

  1. I needed this so much, the songs were perfect and came just when I needed to hear them. I don’t understand how anyone cannot see His Handiwork. It is all around. I look at the birds of the air and love to listen to their songs and I believe that they are singing to the Lord. I see the trees how they lift their branches towards heaven to praise Him. I am in such awe of Him and His Glory and mighty works. How can anyone not see the beauty. I see Him in you and it is beautiful. I love you so much and I am so thankful that He has put us in each other’s life. Thank you for this message and all others that you have done and will do. It is truly a blessing to me. I look forward to reading them and listening to the songs, they help me throughout my day and come at just the right time.

      2. That is great that you got to see the eclipse. I hope you took a picture. You probably saw the same stars I see. They finally fixed the light outside. It took almost a whole year. I am convinced it was a CME. I love you!!!!!!!
