There are few things in this world worth savoring
but the profound beauty of nature reigns supreme,
and despite the severity of the climate or location it’s
found, where life begets life… fragility of the extreme,
be it to wet where it’s dry or to dry where it is wet… the
ecosystem alters the bounty of flora we’d hope to see;
therein the minutiae affected without a maximalist trait
of anyone human, life begs us to look on and let it be…
where we lose sight of nature is thinking we can change
man himself, to take a position against God and eschew
the details of nature which are attributed to the divine
but to step back from the micro engages a macro view.
If nature came about on its own, simply molecules colliding until something came together, then the butterfly would not exist- for from a butterfly we see two distinctly different manifestations (or stages) to its existence. This one simple example tests the very notions of naturalists around the world… would it be found in less of a complex set of structures it might be easier to explain the dramatic differences found. What is seen with the butterfly… is metamorphosis, the process of transformation includes a change in form or nature- resulting in two completely different natures being observable. If anything was subject to such change, as with the nature of man himself, it could be due to supernatural influence.
Psalm 19 speaks of God’s truth… and we would be better off to know this.
Jude 1:1-2 1 Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James, To those who have been called, who are loved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.
and the sound [that] goeth out of his mouth:
as the former clause may have respect to loud thunder, a more violent crack or clap of it; so this may intend some lesser whispers and murmurs of it at a distance; or a rumbling noise in the clouds before they burst; since the word is sometimes used for private meditation. Now the voice of God, whether in his works of nature, or in the dispensations of his providence, or in his word; whether in the thunder of the law, or in the still sound of the Gospel, is to be attentively hearkened to; because it is the voice of God, the voice of the God of glory, majestic and powerful, and is attended with various effects; of which see (Psalms 29:3-9).

and is moved out of his place;
was ready to leap out of his body. Such an effect had this phenomenon of nature on him; as is sometimes the case with men at a sudden fright or unusual sound, and particularly thunder.

The word for “stay” signifies “to supplant”, or “act deceitfully”; the name of Jacob is derived from this root, because he supplanted his brother, (Genesis 25:26); and so it may be rendered here,”he will not supplant”, or “deceive them, when his voice is heard”: that is, either he does not subvert them, the heavens and earth, but preserves them; though he makes them to tremble with his voice of thunder: or he does not act the part of a secret, subtle, and deceitful enemy, when he thunders; but shows himself openly as a King, executing his decrees with authority: or rather he deceives none with his voice; none can mistake it; all know it to be the voice of thunder when it is heard: so Christ’s sheep know his voice in the Gospel, and cannot be deceived; the voice of a stranger they will not follow, (John 10:4John 10:5John 10:27).
