To give an explanation of how the Sun and Moon stood still at the bidding of Joshua in the Valley of Ajalon (Joshua x. 12, 13); or, how the shadow went backwards on the dial of Ahaz (Isa. xxxviii. 8), we do not profess to be able. There have been quite enough guesses without having yet another added. We believe, however, it is easy for the Sustainer to do what is recorded by Joshua and Isaiah as it was to perform the countless other miracles of the Holy Scriptures which the Lord Jesus accepted as absolutely true. The miracles of Moses, and Elijah, and Elisha are not less wonderful.
The Bible distinctly refers to
“Signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” (Luke xxi. 25).
It behoves all true Christadelphians to humbly confess with Job that God
“doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number” (Job ix. 10).
“Vain man would be wise” (Job xi. 12);
but, the believing child of God, when asked,
“How did God make the Sun stand still?”
will humbly acknowledge,
“I do not know, because God hasn’t said”.
