The music of the spheres

Yesterday I had the privilege of listening to 2 phenomenal speakers on astronomy: Wes Callihan and James Burr. They shared with us the history of astronomy and the study/observation of the stars in such depth and intellect that I’m still soaking in the wisdom they shared. Even though there’s not enough space on this blog to share with you all that I gleaned from these gentleman, there is one that I must.

The Antennae Galaxies in Collision Image Credit: Hubble Legacy Archive, NASA, ESA; Processing & Copyright: Davide Coverta Explanation: Two galaxies are squaring off in Corvus and here are the latest pictures. When two galaxies collide, the stars that compose them usually do not. That's because galaxies are mostly empty space and, however bright, stars only take up only a small amount of that space. During the slow, hundred million year collision, one galaxy can still rip the other apart gravitationally, and dust and gas common to both galaxies does collide. In this clash of the titans, dark dust pillars mark massive molecular clouds are being compressed during the galactic encounter, causing the rapid birth of millions of stars, some of which are gravitationally bound together in massive star clusters.

The heavens declare the glory of God;

The skies proclaim the work of His hands.

Psalm 19:1 (NIV)

Because of the order(numbers) of the universe, in space and time and their grand design from the Creator, the stars are making sounds. Each one turning, creating music, the outer sphere turning as it’s nature, the other’s follow suit…

Did you know that the stars were singing praise to God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ?

In returning home, I read this email entitled: Louie Giglio Mashup of Stars and Whales Singing God’s Praise . Now it’s your turn to listen. (Click on the link.)

Is your jaw dropping? How GREAT IS OUR GOD!

The stars are doing exactly what they are created for…not only

do they shine glimmering light in the darkness, they each are playing their own special note, creating an orchestra of music and praise to the Lord!

Some pharisees in the crowd told Jesus, “Teacher, order your disciples to stop.”  He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.”

Which one are you? Are you the pharisee looking on in disgust, because others are embarrassing you and you want them to stop?

Are you the one shouting out with praise to the Lord? Or do the rocks cry out greater than you?

Be convicted in your heart.  Are you doing what you were created for? The animals and all creation praise God. How much more should we that he sent his ONE and Only Son to us? He left His glory and came down in the flesh and walked among us that we would be saved.  The cross tells us how valuable you are to Christ. Praise be to the Lord! Glory to God in the Highest!

How were you created to give God praise?  What is your favorite song to sing or play unto Him?

    Well, as I live and breathe in Christ and through God’s grace. How have you been? This is Lynne Brown’s mom. She sent me your blog. Praise God. I have sent you my email and hope to get further blogs. The snow is beginning to melt here. Last week, I shoveled my driveway 4 times in a 24-hour period. We are beginning to see parts of the lawn tho’. It’s been a few months since we saw it. Give everyone a squeeze from me, tho they may not remember me. Phyllis
