Our Creation Speaks of God’s Glory (April 2020)
I was a young girl that really enjoyed watching the Brady Bunch. If you aren’t familiar with the show, a man had three sons and he married a woman who had three daughters. They all lived together in a house along with their housekeeper. Two episodes aired show them riding mules at the Grand Canyon. Watching those episodes set me on fire and I proclaimed years ago, “I want to take a mule ride to the floor of the canyon.” I mentioned this to a friend about two years ago. She got so excited. She had been twice and wanted to go back. She made all the arrangements and the Lord granted me this desire of my heart last month!
I was given the opportunity to minister on the Rim of the canyon and on the floor. I sought the Lord as to what He would have me minister. One morning, I woke up and heard my spirit man preaching a message. I knew that the Lord had shown me what I should minister in both opportunities. I want to share one of those messages in this newsletter. You may also hear these messages in their completion on YouTube, Bringing to Light, Charlotte Fawver, Grand Canyon.
The South Rim is 7,000 feet above sea level and the North Rim is at 8,297, while the floor is only 2,000 feet. With a 20° difference between the Rim and the floor, temperatures varied from quite cold to warm. We saw snow on the Rim while experiencing warmer weather on the floor. I ministered at the South Rim and here is part of the message that the Lord gave to me. Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth.” There are many Indian tribes at the canyon including the Navajo and the Hopi tribes. Many worship the creation rather than the Creator because that is all that they know. One man even said, “The canyon is too big for just one god, we need to allow many gods to come into the canyon.” They didn’t know that our God is greater than the canyon, the world, and all its galaxies. He is Almighty.
The Lord gave to me Ephesians 3:8-10. “Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ. To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,” As we look at the sun, the moo
n, the stars, we can easily see the “manifold wisdom of God.” “Manifold” means variegated colors. Just as the sun shines on this canyon, it takes on color but changes as the earth rotates or as clouds come and shadow the earth. Verse 10 says that the Church sees His glorious creation, but we are to tell the world that it is Jesus that created it all. Every fingerprint, sunrise, sunset, and snowflake is different. People’s DNA is different. The chances of finding your genetic twin are as high as playing poker with 20,000,000 cards. It’s easy to see the diversified wisdom of God; His manifold wisdom.
Recently we were at the beach and spoke of the wisdom of God. We saw the tiniest grains of sand; yet, the waters did not wash it away. We saw the constant waves controlled by the moon. The ocean has its own filter system. We have seen the different species in the ocean and everything there for their survival. Think with me about the rainbow. We see it when it is raining or not raining; knowing that it is raining somewhere. We see it when the sun is shining. The rainbow is caused by reflection, refraction, and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicolored circular arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun. So, when you see the rainbow, you can know that the sun is shining directly across from it. Th
e Son of God shines upon man, and we can once again see the manifold wisdom of God. The manifold wisdom of God is seen by just looking around us.
We see in Ps. 19:1-3 Amp. “The heavens are telling of the glory of God (the galaxies, planets, moon and stars); And the expanse [of heaven] is declaring the work of His hands. Day after day pours forth speech, And night after night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there [spoken] words [from the stars]: Their voice is not heard.” The sun does not speak, but it speaks to us that there has to be a Creator of the powerful sun. The Indians know that the creation speaks to them that they are mighty; yet, they worship them, rather than Jesus, the Creator God.
We read in Romans 1:20, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:” The Lord tells us that man is without excuse in knowing that there is a supreme being, as he looks at the creation. If man would seek the Creator God, they would find Him. Yet, so many bow their knees to His creation instead. They must hear the Truth that God the Father; the Son, Jesus; and the Holy Spirit are the Great Creator.
