GOD’S WORD FOR MAY 2
GOD’S WORD FOR MAY 2~ ~ Psalm 115:16 ~ ~ “The heavens are the heavens of the Lord, but the earth He has given to the sons of mankind.”
This world system has for years been all a-buzz about the “big bang” theory, which is taught almost as fact, and says that the universe somehow began with a …….well…………a big bang!!! As with most big bangs, they believe the positioning of the stars, planets, comets, moons, and space trash is just random. Everything “landed” just wherever it landed.
But the Bible clearly states that the universe was created to show God’s glory and character to mankind and that mankind is the focus of God’s attention. As the verse above states, God gave the earth to Man. God is the God of order. He will not tolerate chaos. He controls all of His creation, and all things of His creation obey Him.
It is not surprising, then, that scientists now know that the earth is in the center of the Universe. They know because there are approximately the same number of galaxies in all directions from the Earth. Even more proof are the concentric rings of galaxies at equal increments of distance from our Milky Way galaxy. In other words, during the creation of the universe, distinct bands of galaxies formed at uniform distances from a starting point, like rings spreading in a pond from a rock.
The Bible tells us that the heavens were “stretched out”, and this is exactly what scientists are finding with their sophisticated equipment, again showing our galaxy in the center. If the earth was not in the center, these things would not be concentric like they are from our vantage point on earth.
(Isaiah 42:5; 45:12; 48:13; 51:13)
In the end, God will destroy this earth and create new Heavens and a new Earth. This is where those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior will live for eternity. The earth will be perfect, with no death or sickness. There will be animals. All of His creation will be there, but without the darkness that sin caused on this earth. No decay, no killing. All animals will eat vegetation, and be friendly to each other. Jesus will rule, and His light is all we will need. No need for the sun or moon.
It’s all described in the Bible—The true, original Bible—not re-written by any church or organization. He also tells us how to get there. Jesus is the only Way, Truth, and Life!!!!
