Can Nature Really Sing?
The Word of God speaks of a time in the future when all Heaven and Nature will sing a triumphant new song.
Take a moment to think about that. If your are like me I immediately think of my favorite artists and huge orchestral refrains creating a symphony of sound and joy created by instrument’s that mankind has made.
We think like that because all we have known is Earth.
But that is not what this is about. This is about the Sound of Joy lifted up by creatures and nature before the God of Creation.
In Psalm 96:1 it says… sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth!
When I was a small boy and I misbehaved my father, who always disciplined with reason said to me in his broken English; Ernie, you need to be a listen boy… you need to listen!
There is so much noise in the world that we have trouble listening to anything. Yet sound is all around us. In fact there are people and equipment within the scientific community devoted to recording the sounds of the living earth.
Think with me for a moment. I can mention types of sound and you will hear a sound bite in your mind. “Crickets chirping, frogs croaking, an eagles shrill cry, a dogs bark, a lions roar, whales calling each other beneath the sea, a baby laughing, leaves of trees rustling in the wind, running water, waves coming in onto the shore, sea gulls calling to each other, raindrops against windows in a storm, and the sound you hear but cannot ever see…the wind.
I could go on and on and on. Amazing is it not? All these sounds and millions more were created by God. They represent a daily worship chorus of one united voice that gives praise to the God that created everything for the purpose of Praising HIM.
What about the sounds of heaven? What comes to your mind? What is the most beautiful instrument created by God to Praise and Worship HIM?
Have you ever heard a choral ensemble, made up of voices only? Have you listened to a boy’s choir singing hymns in a cathedral? Have you listened to accapella singing? Yes, beautiful pure sounds come forth from human voices.
But human voices are no match for the purity of Angelic Voices that are HOLY, and without sin. God created the HOLY Angels before us to worship and sing Praises to Him. Did you know the HOLY Angels provided musical accompaniment to the greatest voice of all…the Voice of God at the Creation when HE spoke the Universe into existence.
Job 38:6-8…”When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy.”
Wishing you JOY in the MORNING….this LORDS DAY 12-8-2013
