A STUDY OF STARS IN THE BIBLE
Jesse M. Hendley
John 1:12-3, Matthew 2:1-2; Isaiah 13:6-12; Revelation
Friends, today we want to think about our Blessed
Lord, the creation, His manifestation, and His
reception in this world.
In John chapter 1 we read of Christ in the creation,
the prehistorical Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. "In
the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God. The Same was in the beginning
with God. All things were made by Him, and apart from
Him was not anything made that was made." (John 1.)
There we have Jesus as Creator, His prehistorical
Deity as He created the world. Sometimes we do not
realize this, that the Son of God Whom we worship is
far more than man! He is GOD.
We read in Genesis these words, "He made the stars
also." Our Lord did make the stars. The study of stars
is an amazing thing, and here in the Word of God we
read that the literal stars out yonder in space were
MADE by the Lord Jesus Christ.
Thousands of years ago in Asia Minor men watching the
heavens at night noticed that some of the pinpoints of
light MOVED, and moved in relation to one another.
They slowly came to understand that these "wanderers"
(the Greek word meaning "to wander," is the word from
which we get our word PLANET) were really moving in
regular orbits. They noticed that these planets were
circling around the sun (the solar system) and that
the sun itself was merely another star. They knew
about this tremendous solar system of ours. We think
our earth is big, being some 8,000 miles in diameter,
and yet the sun is 864,000 miles in diameter. AND
JESUS CHRIST MADE IT ALL.
Jesus made the earth for our habitation. You know, the
planet Mercury could not support life, as we know it.
Mercury is only 36,000,000 miles from the sun and has
seven times our heat and light, so life as we know it
here could not abide on Mercury. Uranus is called the
Frozen Plan ...
