Isaiah 40:26 – No Human is Equated with G-d

7 Av 5783 – 26 July 2023

The creation testifies to the glory of the Creator.

“Raise your eyes on high, and see Who created these (things)…” Isaiah 40:26

“The heavens declare the glory of G-d and the firmament tells of His handiwork.” (Psalm 19:2)

Everything we see points to the Creator. Any person walking on the earth receives the breath in his nostrils from the Almighty.

There is a famous Buddhist saying that the finger pointing to the moon should not be confused with the moon itself.

The great mistake of Christianity was to confuse a created being with the Creator. Every human is created in the image of G-d and ultimately points to Him and reflects His glory. No human being who receives the breath of life from G-d should be equated with Him. (Jeremiah 10:1-16; 16:19-21)
