The Wonder of His Eclipse

General revelation provides us with the knowledge that God exists. “The heavens declare the glory of God,” says the psalmist [in Psalm 19].

God’s glory is displayed in the works of His hands. This display is so clear and manifest that no creature can possibly miss it.

It unveils God’s eternal power and deity (Romans 1: 18– 23). Revelation in nature does not give a full revelation of God. It does not give us the information about God the Redeemer that we find in the Bible. But the God who is revealed in nature is the same God who is revealed in Scripture.

Not everyone in the world has read the Bible or heard the gospel proclaimed. But the light of nature shines upon everyone in every place, in every time. God’s general revelation takes place every day. He is never without a witness to Himself.

“Like one who runs a race
with strong and eager pace,
it speeds across the heavens;
the sun its path completes,”
