104. See Nature, Then You See God / Pastor Sookwan Lee

A book I read recently contained many interesting stories and I want to share that with you. The book was written by Mark Batterson, and titled ‘Whisper’. Many asked where miracles are, but the writer said that this world is full of miracles and tells these stories.

Even though we do not feel it, we live on the earth which rotates at the speed of 1000 miles/hour. In addition, since the distance of the earth’s orbit around the sun is about 587,000,000 miles, the earth travels 67,000 miles/hour. Therefore, we live on the earth which rotates 1,000 miles/hour and at the same time travels 1,600,000 miles a day and do not feel dizzy. Isn’t that miraculous?

However, another thing not to forget is the sun around which the earth orbits as it also revolves around the center of galaxy. The earth is bigger than Mars or Mercury, but a thousand times smaller than Jupiter, which is the biggest planet in the solar system. This Jupiter is 10 times smaller than the sun. Even so, our sun is a relatively small star in the galaxy. The orange giant star Arcturus is 26 times larger than the sun and the Red super giant Antares is 10,000 times brighter than the sun.

Since the development of the Hubble telescope, humans can observe the size of the universe. Based on observations using the Hubble telescope, there are 200,000,000,000 galaxies and the diameter of the universe is 930,000,000,000 light years. Consider countless galaxies, and stars in it which travel and rotate with various orbits and they do not always collide into each other and have its own orbits. If someone does not believe a creator who created all these, isn’t that just amazing?

We do not hear but all the existing things make musical sounds. For example, electrons which orbit outside of carbon atoms cause sounds and the level of the harmony is that of a Gregorian chant (a form of monophonic, unaccompanied sacred song of the Roman Catholic Church.) According to the study of biomechanics, everything in nature such as grass, dew, and snails make musical sounds. Because these sounds are either too low in frequency or are ultrasonic waves, we cannot hear but nevertheless, the universe sings to its creator.

In the bible, ‘the mountains will burst into song and all the trees will clap their hands’. This is not a metaphorical expression. When we leave this world and the range of our hearing expands, we can hear these sounds. That is why, it says in Revelation, ‘Every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea praise and worship God.’ (Revelation 5:13) Apostle Paul said since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. As science develops, God is more clearly manifested. Even in this situation, some close their eyes and say, ‘There is no God.’ That is just incredible.
