4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun, 5 which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
- This passage is, on the surface, about the heavenly beings. They have their domain, connecting to one another. Their existence is absolute b/c of the one who created them and not in and of themselves. They are not diety, yet they produce sounds and utterances that will go on, because of Elohim, their creator.
- He sets His sun there in a home, a dwelling, a tabernacle to house the glory of God in them!
-What a beautiful picture of how God has placed His son and the Holy Spirit inside of us! We are a tent, a tabernacle, a dwelling place for the presence and glory of God!
- We have our domain on this earth, connecting to one another and our existence is only b/c of the one who created us. We are not diety who have any power in and of ourselves. We are NOTHING without Him! Yet, our utterances, our prayers, praises and proclamations produce sounds that go up to Heavenly places, to a Holy God, on the golden altar before the throne (Rev 8:3). These utterances are preserved. They live on and are protected by angels and answered by a Holy God!
~Let that sink in! Every utterance from you as His creation, His bride, His church, that goes up to Heaven lives on beyond you! They are literally preserved and protected!
- The Holy One will one day send His son from His heavenly dwelling place (chamber) to us here on earth. There is nothing on this earth that is hidden from Him. He is here, He was there before time and will be at the end! His radiance will be seen and felt by the whole earth!
~I cannot wait to see Him! I cannot wait to see the protectors of my prayers and worship around the very throne of God! Until then, I pray my worship on this earth is as authentic here… as if I am already at His feet!
