“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And the expanse [of heaven] is declaring the work of His hands.” (PSALM 19:1 AMP)
God’s creation is filled with lessons that we can learn about Jesus.
After all, God’s word says that everything was created through Him and for Him.
“For by Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, [things] visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [that is, by His activity] and for Him.”(COLOSSIANS 1:16 AMP)
The celestial bodies in Outer Space are no exception to this principle.
In the Solar System:
The Sun represents Jesus.
The Earth’s Moon represents us.
The Earth represents the world (both believers and non believers).
The stars represent God’s holy angels.
The other seven planets represent God’s other created beings.
“God made the two great lights--the greater light (the sun) to rule the day, and the lesser light (the moon) to rule the night; He made the [galaxies of] stars also [that is, all the amazing wonders in the heavens]. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to provide light upon the earth, to rule over the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good and He affirmed and sustained it.” (GENESIS 1:16-18 AMP)
Like the sun, Jesus is the Greater Ruler - He rules over all creation.
Like the moon, we (man) were created as the lesser rulers - Man was given the rulership of the earth.
The moon ruling over the night represents us (man) whose rulership led to darkness because of Adam’s sin.
The sun ruling over the day represents Jesus whose rulership led to light because of Jesus’ everlasting victory at the cross which redeemed man and the whole earth to the glory of God.
Just like the sun is the center of the Solar System, Jesus is the center of all creation.
He is the Source of life just like the sun is the source of light in the Solar System.
“And He Himself existed and is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. [His is the controlling, cohesive force of the universe.] He is also the head [the life-source and leader] of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will occupy the first place [He will stand supreme and be preeminent] in everything.” (COLOSSIANS 1:17-18 AMP)
Like the moon which doesn’t give out light of its own but only reflects light from the sun, we too can’t do anything without the life of Jesus flowing in us.
“If even the moon does not shine, And the stars are not pure in His sight,” (Job 25:5NKJV)
“I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.” (JOHN 15:5 AMP)
