We have been using a certain analogy to explain that things change in form, as they move from one reality to another. We will use that same analogy to further explain the illustration we started with yesterday. But before we do that, let’s go to the scriptures and see why we can confidently use natural things to explain spiritual things. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,” (Romans 1:20 NKJV)
You see, every truth that is revealed in the scriptures, if you look very closely at nature, you will see it also written in the very fabric of the things God has made. So, let no one feel that the analogies we make use of here are out of place, they are not. Nature teaches us about God too, it is never contrary to the scriptures, after all, nature was formed by the word of God, and it is that same word that the scriptures contain. In fact, if you get a revelation from the scriptures that contradicts nature, your revelation is wrong, go back and hear God well.
The truth contained in our illustration from yesterday’s conversation, is the same thing that is at work in an atomic particle, where electrons and protons revolve around the nucleus of the atom, held in orbit by forces that maintain a conclusive relationship between the revolving particles and the established nucleus. This same phenomenon is what keeps our moon and all the communications satellites orbiting round the earth in place. It is also the same thing we see in the relationship between the planets in our solar system and the sun, where gravitational force keeps the planets in orbit around the sun.
We must realise this; truth is universal. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. (John 1:1-3 NKJV) The scripture also teach us that God cannot change, neither can His word change. As we go from one reality to another, truth may change in form, but the essence of it remains the same. Tomorrow we shall continue with the understanding of how the truth of faith operates in life.
(YOU ARE AS CHRIST IS. Ephesians 2:13-16, Galatians 2:18-20)
