Excerpts and paraphrasing from E. W. Bullinger’s … The Witness of the Stars…

For more than 2500 years… the world was without a written Revelation from God… so a question comes to mind… Did God leave himself without a witness?

Romans 1:19…says…” that which may be known of God is Manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them… for the invisible things of him from the creation of the world… are clearly seen being understood by the things… that are made… even his eternal power and godhead …so that they are without excuse…

So.. how was God known?… ask yourself how were his…” invisible things” ie… his plans… his purposes …his counsels known since the creation of the world?….

We are told by the precious Holy Spirit in Romans 10:18… referring back to verse 17… that…” Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word… the sayings of God…” have they not heard or how have the heard?”… then comes the answer…” their sound went into all the Earth …and their  teaching.. message ….instruction unto the ends of the world..

So what words?… what instruction?… whose message …whose teaching?…

There is only one answer…THE HEAVENS!…. this passage is quoted from Psalm 19… the first part of it talks about revelation of God written in the heavens.. and the latter part with the revelation of God written in the word…

This beautiful psalm brings the two subjects together… the first is a revelation of the creator…EL… in is works… the second in the revelation of the Covenant Jehovah in his words…

This is very deep so I will only structure the first four verses of Psalm 19…

Psalm 19 verses 1 through 4… speak of the heavens… Verses 4 through 6…” in them”…THE SUN…. verses 7 through 10 …the scriptures… verses 11 through 14…” in them”…THE SERVANT….

Further comments… when we read the whole passage… and mark the structure and note the words employed.. we are told that the heavens contain a revelation from God… they prophesy …they show knowledge… they tell of God’s glory and set forth his purposes and counsels…

In Isaiah 40:26…. we read…” lift up your eyes on high… and see who hath created these.. that bringeth  out their host by number… he calleth them all by name… by the greatness of his might… and for that he is strong in power… not one is lacking”…

There is a Divine declaration… that God both numbered and named the stars of Heaven… the following lesson… we will talk about how he revealed these names and have they been handed down to us…

My final comments and thoughts… how can we look up at the stars …the vastness of the universe …and deny that there is a God?… not just A god… but the god of Abraham Isaac and Jacob… go deep and study hard…

It is my obligation to acknowledge and honor … paraphrase… from a great teacher…E.W. Bullinger
