"The Heavens Praise Your Wonder, Oh LORD...

Psalm 89:5
"...Your faithfulness too, in the assembly of
the holy ones."
This picture only magnifies the wonder
of our universe. It makes me think of
the Glory of GOD on His Throne in
Heaven where the angels without
ceasing cry out "Holy, Holy, Holy,
LORD GOD Almighty; Who was,
and is, and is to come!
GOD's Holiness will not allow man
in his fallen state to look upon Him!
Praise GOD that Jesus has made that
possible for us because of the salvation
we have in Him.
One Day we shall see Him for who He is
in all of His Glory, and there forever
after be in our Holy GOD's presence!

Be Still and Know That I Am GOD.

I'm glad I'm one of GOD's "eggs" in His basket!
It just amazes me the pictures the space Hubble
has taken!
This picture reminds me of a basket holding His
Glory. His "basket" seems to have shimmery
sequins on it and around it!
Again, it is unfathomable the vast light years
wide this picture shows. I'm surprised the
Hubble could get it all in focus.
I am also surprised at how calm it makes me
feel when looking at a mass that is so unstable!
So it is with life. Our life is so beautiful, then
there comes times that are so unstable.
Praise our GOD, He has our life in His
hands and doesn't allow anything we can
not bear. (I Cor. 10:13)

GOD is Beyond Man's Comprehension

This is my favorite picture of a place in our
universe! It doesn't register with my brain
that the heights of these gas clouds are
millions of light years tall!
My first impression is "a family." The father
on the left with the mother in the middle
holding her "child's" hand!
How could anyone think this has happened
randomly. I read from a friend with the
same exclamation of it being like putting
all the parts of a watch in a box, shake it
up, and out comes a finished product of a
working Rolex!
"What is man, that You are mindful of him?"
Hebrew 2:6
Hebrews 2:7-8 goes on to say, "You (GOD)
made him a little lower than the angels; You
crowned him with glory and honor and put
everything under his feet." My commentary
shares, "GOD put Jesus in charge of
everything, and Jesus reveals Himself to us.
We do not yet see Jesus reigning on earth,
but we can picture Him in His heavenly
glory. When you are confused by present
events and anxious about the future,
remember Jesus' position and authority.
He is LORD of all, and one day He will rule
on earth as He does now in heaven. This
truth can give stability to your decisions
day by day."

The Heavens Declare the Glory of GOD

As a child is in the womb of its mother, so is this
galaxy within the "womb" of the universe!
"A member of the 'ring galaxies,' AM 0644-741,
lies some 300 million light years from earth. The
blue ring surrounding it, made up of rampant
star formation, is 150,000 light years in
diameter, larger than the entire Milky Way."
(From the book, "Reflections on the Nature
of God edited by Michael Reagan, pg 29)
Most scientists want to say this happened
by "accident" or a "Big Bang" effect!!
Let's look at this "Big Bang" effect. They declare
that all we now see was at one time condensed
into a small tablespoon of super mass. They say
that all that is today came from that mass and
not an Intelligent GOD whose being is so far
above our understanding; the Bible tells us
that when we are in Heaven we will spend an
eternity learning about Him. Millions, Billions,
trillions, quadrillions of years there... and we will
still have only touched the surface of who GOD
is and His Love for us. And they want to explain
GOD away!!!
Another thought comes about the Big Bang. Where
did this mass of energy come from? The scientist
want to say it always existed. That goes against
their own laws of thermal dynamics; that being
"something can't come from nothing!" I also
question them, "Why is it so easy for you to say
a mass of energy with no organization has always
existed, but not an Omnipotent Creator. The latter
seems the more intelligible choice. It all comes
back down to their arrogance and refusal to
admit they are a part of fallen humanity that
needs GOD's saving grace.
I would like to compare it to a grub worm and a
scientist. You know a grub worm could never
design a rocket to go to the moon and back. The
scientist would probably even step on the worm
to get it out of its lowly estate. As so with man
compared to GOD. We can never understand
the ways of our Creator. Praise GOD He did
not step on us in our lowly estate, but in deed
took us in His Arms and saved those who
responded to His saving grace.
The next time you see a new picture the Hubble
telescope has put out...think, "How Awesome
our Holy, Loving, Creator, Savior, Father GOD is,"
to love us yet while we were sinners and came to
die in our place. Christ was not just another man
who died on a cross. He was GOD in the flesh and
took upon Him ever sin from Adam to the last
human being He will ever Create. No wonder
the world went black and the earth shook when
Christ said, "It is finished!"
But, that is not the end! There is going to be a
New Heaven and a New Earth! No unbelieving
scientist can imagine the wonders! It will not
be under the authority of Satan as this present
universe is. For there, the darkness is gone forever.
GOD Himself will be the Light. The New Earth
can be the size of this now known universe! The
New Jerusalem itself is the size of our earth. It
is to come from Heaven and sit upon the New
Earth. The Throne of GOD will be with man
and His Glory and will be ours for ever and ever!

Let US Make Man in OUR Image


Psalm 19:1 "The Heavens declare the Glory of GOD."
Genesis 1:26 "Then GOD said, 'Let US make man in OUR image...'"
Genesis 1:27 "So GOD created man in His own image, in the image of GOD,
He created Him, male and female He created them."

John 1:1-2, 14 "In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD
was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD. He was
with GOD in the beginning. The WORD became
Flesh and dwelt among men."


Luke 2:13 "Suddenly a great company of Heavenly Host
appeared with the Angel praising GOD and
saying, "Glory to GOD in the highest and on
earth peace to men on whom His favor rests."


Matthew 27:50-53 "And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud
voice, He gave up His Spirit. At that moment the
curtain was torn in two from TOP to bottom. The
earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke
open and the bodies of many holy people who had
died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs
and after Jesus' resurrection they went about into
the holy city and appeared to many people."


John 14: 1-3 "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in
GOD, trust in Me also. In My Father's house are
many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told
you. I am going to prepare a place for you. And,
if I go...I will come again and take you to be with
me, that where I Am you may be also."


I Cor. 15:52-54 "...for the trumpet shall sound, the dead will
be raised imperishable and we will be changed.
For the perishable must clothed itself with
imperishable and the mortal with immortality.
Then the saying that was written will be true:

Rev. 19:7, 9 "Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory! For
the Wedding Feast of the Lamb has come, and His
Bride (The Church) has made herself ready. Then
the angel said to me, 'Write: Blessed are those who
are invited to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb...
These are the true words of GOD.' "


I Peter 3:10-13 "The Day of the LORD will come as a thief. The
heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements
will be destroyed by fire and the earth and every-
thing in it will be laid bare...That day will bring
about the destruction of the heavens by fire and
the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping
with His promise we are looking forward to a New
Heaven and a New Earth, the home of righteousness."

Rev. 21:1-5 "Then I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth for the 1st
heaven and 1st earth had passed away and there was
no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the New Jersalem
coming down out of Heaven from GOD, prepared as a
bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And, I heard
a loud voice from The Throne saying, 'Now the dwelling
of GOD is with men, and He will live with them. They
will be His people and GOD Himself will be with them
and be their GOD. He will wipe away every tear from
their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning,
crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed
away!' "


Rev. 20:11-15 "Then I saw a Great White Throne and Him who
sat upon it. The earth and sky fled from His presence
and there was no place for them. And, I saw the dead,
great and small, standing before The Throne and the
books were opened. Another Book was opened which
is the Book of Life. The dead were judged according
to what they had done as recorded in the books.
ANYONE whose name was not recorded in the Book
of Life was thrown into the Lake of Fire. (verse 10)
"The Lake of burning sulfur, where the Beast and the
False Prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented
day and night for EVER AND EVER."

Each person has the inividual choice
to make:
1. Accept the free gift of salvation in Christ and
experience (1 Cor. 2:9) "Eye has not seen, nor
ear heard, nor has it entered the heart or mind
what GOD has in store for those who love Him
and His Appearing!
2. Reject His gift of salvation and GOD's WORD
assures your separation for Eternity in the Lake
of Fire. (Rev. 20:11-15) I am sure 1 Cor. 2:9
applies in reverse to those choosing to reject so
Great a Salvation. "Eye has not seen, nor ear
heard, nor has it entered the heart or mind of man
what GOD has in store for those who REJECT
Him and His Appearing.
"All have fallen short of the Glory of God"
But, all only need to receive His gift of
Eternal Life by asking the LORD to
forgive them of their sin and come into
their hearts. What an EYE OPENING
and HEART OPENING experience it is
when you follow this simple request from
our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior
Holy, Father GOD!!
Do it and watch with wonder what
He does for you!
