LESSON 10

THE SUN

PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE RISING OF THE SUN

Ps 50:1‑6        Read:  "…The Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof..."

 

Comment        The Word of the Lord is gone out to all the Earth, revealing signs from the rising of the sun – bringing light and life.  And the going down of the same ‑ darkness and sleep.

 

Is 45:5‑7          "I AM THE LORD, and there is none else,...”  “That they may know, from the rising of the Sun!..."

 

MANY TAKE THE SUN FOR GRANTED

Matt 5:45         Jesus said, "…For He maketh the sun to rise on the evil and on the good..."

 

Comment        The Sun rises on the: Tare and the Wheat; Just and Unjust; Evil and Good.  Until the harvest of the Lord, when He will gather the wheat (Children of the Lord) from among the tares.  Now! is the accepted time as the sun rises and sets.  For the day will come when the sun will be turned into darkness, and will not rise any more!  "…One shall be taken and the other left." (Matt 24:40)

 

TO YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN

Eccl 12:1-2      "Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth…”  “While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened!..."  "(Work now,) while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work." (John 9:4) "…(For) the darkness shall cover the Earth and gross darkness the people…" (Isaiah 60:2)

 

Summary:       What a message without words (Psalm 19), as the heavens declare the glory of God man is without excuse. (Romans 1:20)
