Thanks. I look forward to hearing from you.
In one of the most detailed astronomical images ever produced, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured an unprecedented look at the Orion Nebula. This turbulent star formation region is one of astronomy's most dramatic and photogenic celestial objects. More than 3,000 stars of various sizes appear in this image. Some of them have never been seen in visible light. These stars reside in a dramatic dust-and-gas landscape of plateaus, mountains, and valleys that are reminiscent of the Grand Canyon. The Orion Nebula is a picture book of star formation, from the massive, young stars that are shaping the nebula to the pillars of dense gas that may be the homes of budding stars.
Many scientist and educators today would have you believe all this just happened by chance. Common sense tells you no way that happened.
The Bible says in Psalms 19:1 -
Genesis 1: 14-19 records God's creation of the sun, moon and stars - it says -
Gen 1:14 ¶ And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
Notice verse 16 - He made the sun and the moon then it says He made the stars also. Millions and Billions of these beautiful creations and it just says 'He made the stars also.' - No big deal, NO PROBLEM, Simple and easy for Him - 'He made the stars also'. This was just a little thing to God - He made the stars also.
You know what is a big deal to God? YOU and me. He spoke creation into existence, but Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, came personally to make a way of salvation for you and me.
All of us have sinned (Romans 3:23) and sin separates us from God (Isaiah 59:2), in fact if it is not dealt with it will result in eternal death, that is separation from God for eternity in the torments of the lake of fire (Romans 6:23a and Revelation 20:14-15) but the Bible tells us in 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Because He loves us and did not want us to be separated from Him for eternity, Jesus came and took our punishment for us. He died in our place, He suffered pain, agony and knew separation from God the Father for us, He shed His precious blood that our sin could be washed away. 1 John 1:7 says, But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. On the third day after He died and was buried Jesus arose bodily from the grave in victory. He is alive and willing to save each person who will trust Him alone for salvation.
He bought salvation for us with His blood - if we will come to Him and accept the free gift of salvation He offers -He will take our sin and give us His righteousness. Only His righteousness can get us into Heaven. What will you do with the invitation to salvation that the Creator of the Universe offers. What will you do with the love He offers you? Will you reject Him or trust Him?
