Commentary By: Gordon King
Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, it’s Superman! A comic book hero that most of us have heard about, Superman, mightier than anyone on earth, yet nothing in comparison to God Almighty!
God, is He greater than the sum of His creation, is He bigger than all of His creation? Yes, He is! God is Omnipotent, meaning that He has unlimited power and is able to do anything, Omniscient, meaning that He is knows everything, and Omnipresent, meaning that He is present everywhere at the same time.
Our Lord, our God, our Creator, powerful to do all things, everywhere at all times, knowing all things. He is greater than the sum of His creation, He always was and always will be. He is more powerful than anything, much bigger than anything.
We only know about what we know about, that seems to make obvious sense. Yet there are many things about God that we don’t know about, many things which He created that we don’t know about, such as what lies outside of our universe? As far as we know that’s all that exists. But is it?
God didn’t tell us everything about what He created, we have enough to think about with what He has given us and what He allows us to know. But I often wonder just what lies outside of the universe, just what else has He created both outside and even inside of this universe that we don’t know about?
God created this universe, He holds it in the palm of His hand. Has He also created other universes? Perhaps other species of life? Maybe, and we won’t know until we get to heaven. Perhaps and most likely He has created things which we haven’t even heard of or thought about, things which would absolutely boggle our mind.
I relish the thought of getting to heaven and being able to explore all that God has created. I hope and pray that the good Lord allows us to venture out into the universe and beyond, that He is well pleased for us to get to know what He has created. How awesome would it be to not only explore our own solar system, but the entire galaxy, even the universe?! And how much more awesome would it be to have the opportunity to explore outside of this universe?!
This life now here on earth is finite, it is very simple compared to all that the Lord has created. We have so much more to look forward to once we get to heaven, and that gives me great hope, joy, and excitement! Being able to actually see just how great our God is! And we will have all of eternity to be with God and to explore His creations.
I don’t know what God has in store for us, and I am not sure what it is that He will have us doing. But I do know that it will be like nothing we have ever experienced here on earth! I know that it will be much grander, more beautiful and exquisite, more real than we could ever imagine.
As lost souls here on earth we don’t have much to look forward to, in fact just the opposite. But as born-again believers in Jesus Christ we have everything to look forward to! Our time here on earth is a short one, it won’t be long before we are united with Christ in eternity, an eternity without end, an eternity to get to know God even more, to discover His depths, to learn more of His ways, more of His creation, more of His glory!
Our salvation is so much more than just being saved from eternal Hell, although that’s enough for me! It’s life at it’s best, it’s a future filled with never-ending discoveries and exploration, a life with God, a life serving our Master and Creator! And just maybe that’s why our universe is so big, it would take eternity to explore it all.
Whatever we face in this life it won’t last forever, and what we have to look forward to is so much more than the sum of our life here on earth!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
