What is the Mystery of the Universe?

The universe is a story of mysteries. What are the heavens, what is earth, and what are we human beings? What is the mystery of the universe, and where can we find the answer to all our questions?

The explanation to this mystery can be found in two places: in the universe itself and in the Bible, which is the word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). Over two thousand and seven hundred years ago, Isaiah wrote that God sits above the circle of the earth (Isaiah 40:22). More than a thousand years before that, Job said, “He [God] stretches out the north over the void; He hangs the earth upon nothing” (Job 26:7). Today it has been confirmed by science that the earth is indeed round and not flat, and that the earth is hanging upon nothing. Science confirms that the elements of the human body are simply the elements of dust. However, the Bible told us long ago that the human body was formed out of dust.

The Bible also explains why the heavens and the earth exist. This is the mystery of the universe, and this mystery is God Himself. Romans 1:20 says, “For the invisible things of Him, both His eternal power and divine characteristics, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being perceived by the things made, so that they would be without excuse.” The universe was created by God and declares the existence of God (Psalms 19:1; Acts 14:15-17). When we see the heavens, the earth, the stars, the sun, and the moon, we cannot deny that there is a sovereign God (Psalms 8:1, 3). Even after billions of years, the order in the universe is maintained, and we still enjoy the distinct difference between the seasons and the definite timing of day and night. Through the universe we can see a glimpse of God’s power, God’s glory, and God’s divine characteristics.

The universe was also created because of God’s purpose to enter into man (Revelation 4:11). Without God, the entire universe is empty and dead, and without God, man is an empty vessel. John 4:24 tells us that God is Spirit, and Zechariah 12:1 tells us that God created man with a spirit to contain Him, a spirit that is as important as the heavens and the earth. You only need to open your heart and pray to Him, and God will enter into you. Then you will become a person with meaning, and you will enjoy God as the mystery of the entire universe.

“Oh God!
You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth,
and You are the mystery of the universe!
Without You, my life has no meaning.
Lord Jesus! I open my heart to You. Come into me!”
