Our Magnificent Creator God

All Creation Praises The Creator


John 1:1-3
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

Genesis 1:1-4
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.  And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.


One might be tempted to understand the statement that the entire creation praises God in a figurative manner, but that would be a judgment made on the basis of ignorance. 

First of all, the entire creation praises God in that it shows forth His handiwork (Romans 1:20). But, as all praise of God must be active as well as passive, we would also expect active praise of God in the creation, too. 

There is the song of the birds, beautiful to hear, and each bird has its own unique way to glorify its Creator in praise. 

Modern science has also discovered that just like the land creatures, the sea creatures, too, each have their own unique voices, some of which are very clearly musical. The eerie, yet glorious song of the whale is fascinating even for us humans to hear. 

And even the inanimate part of creation, even the heavens themselves, offer song, very literally, we have learned. Radio astronomy has learned that the heavens are filled with stars, which are created to give off radio signals, signals which, when received by a radio, produce an incredible music, similar to the song of the whale. 

Even unbelieving men have noted these sounds from unexpected parts of the creation, and they have also remarked about the amazing musical qualities of these sounds, which are the sounds of the creation itself joining with believers and angels in praise of the One who has delivered us from sin, death, and the devil!
