Rain Down My Righteousness

Entry #6 from The 20 (+) Creation Stories in the Bible.
There are many places in the Bible that can inform our understanding of how we all came into existence. This series is for your enjoyment.

“You heavens above, rain down my righteousness;
let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
let salvation spring up,
let righteousness flourish with it;
I, the Lord, have created it.” 
– Isaiah 45 verse 8

The Bible uses word pictures to keep in our hearts. On thing this word picture tells me is that this amazing world was designed deliberately to please its Creator, and that the atheist position of chance and randomness is completely foreign to God’s intention, and to the needs of the human heart.

  1. I do not believe in athiest. When some people are angry with God because of some troubling circumstance they figure they will punish God by pretending He does not exist. Athiest suffer from a health condition. I was going to say a mental health condition but it is spiritual. Mankind is born into a poisoned state. God is the antidote.

  4. Isaiah 45 is also the other place in scripture where the words tohu and bohu appear – which signify void, empty, ruin, due to cataclysmic / catastrophic destruction. The first place of course is Gen. 1:2 “and the earth BECAME without form and void (tohu and bohu)”

  6. Compare the wonderment of the Bible to the atheist Stephen Crane, who wrote this poem:

    A man said to the Universe, “Sir, I exist!”
    “That,” replied the Universe, “has not created in me any sense of obligation.”

    Yes, existentialism is a real expose of the predicament man is in, vis-a-vis against the World. But, ultimately, it can provide no real answers of real comfort to us in this Vale of Tears.

    Stephen Crane, author of “The Red Badge of Courage,” committed suicide at the age of 38.

    • Amen to all of that, Steven. Suicide! In high school we were assigned to read The Red Badge of Courage. I hated it because of his bleak outlook.
