|2||I am looking for evidence of dark skies||Amos 8:9||Robert Nicholson||63190|
In Amos 8:9 we read "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day" Although I believe this is referring to the LOrd's judgment on idoltarous Israel, it also reminds that that darkness was when God judged his son on account of our sin.
I do not believe that any natural reason can be found. This darkness is a miracle when God clothed the suffering Saviour in darkness. As the soldier at the cross marvelled "Truly this is the Son of God"; well might our hearts echo the same now and through eternity.
In addition to the accounts given by inspiration in scripture early historians have referred to it. Celsus a famous opponent of Christiany writes about it. Father Tertullian, at the close of the second century said boldy to his adversaries. "At the moment of Christ's death, the light departed from the sun, and the land was darkened at noonday, which wonder is related in your own annals and is perserved in your archives to this day"
I love these words:
Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in
When the incarnate maker died
For man his creatures sin.
What a Saviour!
