Skies are indeed many things including blue.
This I like to think of as flying through the first firmament.
This is what came to mind when I was having a conversation with someone about conspiracy theories. He touched on the moon landing by the Americans in the 60’s and whether it actually happened or not. Personally, I don’t hold an opinion, but I did say ‘I can tell you what it says in scripture about the moon’… Gladly, he said, ‘Go on then’…
‘God created a greater light and a lesser light. The lesser light being the moon. It reflects the greater light for us to have his light even at night. When we don’t see the moon in our night sky, we still have his stars.’
Genesis 1:14= And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons and for days and years:
1:15= And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
1:16= And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
1:17= And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
1:18= And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
1:19= And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
So, as I finished explaining on simpler terms, he looked at me and smiled saying,’I prefer to think of the moon in that way.’
Normally, to make a point I back one verse up with another, but I feel this is a stand alone event that we see continually in our lives. I have taken these things for granted.
This is yet another thing to be thankful for.
Every Blessing, Xx Val
