All the stars in the sky will be dissolved
and the heavens rolled up like a scroll;
all the starry host will fall
like withered leaves from the vine,
like shriveled figs from the fig tree.
Intellect which is not joined to The Word of God is foolishness by definition.
In the observable universe, estimates suggest 170 billion galaxies. It sounds like you can know that number; however it is beyond our realistic comprehension. Each of these galaxies have billions of stars if not Trillions of stars. Some of these galaxies are called Spiral Galaxies. Off the net: These galaxies have a dense cluster of stars in the middle and arms that spiral away from that center. Since the 1930’s astronomers have noticed a problem. The outer stars seem to take more time to complete their orbit than the central portion of the galaxy. This means that, after a few rotations, the spiral arms will lose their shape and basically disappear (as the galaxy winds up).
Please note. The problem is only for those who do not believe Scripture. Due to the evolutionary take on TIME — spiral galaxies should not exist. But not only do they exist, they exist all across the known universe. Dr. Slick of course gives all sorts of plausible reasons to the unbeliever — and I have a glimmer, just a glimmer of Slick’s enterprise of evil, of darkness.
Being “retired” I have more free time, though, I need to work on redeeming it. Some of that free time is spent doing research. Sit down inside the coffee house, and watch one of the more interesting documentaries I have ever seen on how the “brain” or “mind” currently works. They made a video, animated, of a bunch of window looking shapes within the framework of a trapezoid. Initially the trapezoid looked like a trapezoid, as they added in window frames — it began to look more like a group of regular windows, to my eyes, anyway. Then they spun it in a circle — still animated, inside and against a black back ground. It appeared to go backwards after half a revolution. Oscillating. They took the same video and showed it in what would be called more third world countries, and they saw the video correctly, with the item turning in a circle. Video from the sixties, my best guess. I would watch it oscillate — then they would show the video from the top, and you could see it spinning in a circle.
WHY was my brain “less intelligent“. EXTREMELY interesting — I grew up with the REALITY of the Existence of Windows and what they looked like for the most part. Evidently this formed a groove or river in my mind, relative to what windows were, and the shape of windows etc. And due to this, I experience an optical illusion. Those whose brains had not been washed with the repetition of the reality of windows — they could watch the video, and they saw what was really happening — the animation was turning in a circle.
YESHUA [JESUS] at the age of 12, was in the Temple discussing Scripture with the learned men of the day. Obviously, he meditated on scripture from a young age. Meditation with a right heart is different then memorization, or even just a bit of study. Most of our brains have been “washed” in a certain direction on many subjects. One should not marvel that [free speech] is not practiced at our institutes of higher and lower education — the idea of washing the brain in a certain direction does not allow for a lot of [free] thought. Hence we have extremely intelligent people who look at spiral galaxies which should not exist — and it makes no impact on them, as it does not fit [the way they have been washed]. Yeshua questioned the current understanding of various understandings – as the Word become Flesh – He obviously had ALL advantage over us; but do not neglect to see our call to Wash with Truth our own understanding, lest it be corrupted beyond repair.
Said all that to comment on Spiral Galaxies – earth is part of the Milky Way which is a spiral — and, again, quote off the net If the universe is billions of years old there shouldn’t be any galaxies with a spiral shape left and yet we find them all over the universe, including our local milky way.
It gets dicier. Galaxies over 10 billion light years away appear to be identical to our Milky Way 🙂 — and then, there are the BLUE STARS.
The very visible arms of these spirals contain LOTS and LOTS of the very bright and hot Blue Stars thought to burn through their fuel relatively quickly. The small bang age of the universe would portend that there should be NO Blue Stars Lefts. Instead, they are everywhere. But don’t try to mention that at a University or even in kindergarten. Dr. Slick will get all over you 🙂
The Bigger Picture
The WHY things ARE what they are. WHY would the Eternal One permit such a hazy landscape to exist. That it exists, that brains are washed in ways that mask Truth is almost unnerving. Until you Ponder scripture — from Genesis to Revelation. Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour. It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And of course: And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. We have to develop a LOVE of Truth in our Heart or we grow blind. [see footnote]
And Christians can be some of the Blindest People on the earth. Meaning You, Me, All of us. We are Not immune as much as we might like to be. I think the men and woman in the House of espresso, are at least mature enough to accept that we have fallen short of what we could have been by Now. We are all in a place of searching Out these matters of the heart, and acting on them where we can. But, we should be admonished, Not to think of ourselves more highly that we ought. DO YOU understand Blue Stars? So, YOU were there when the Eternal One hung them in the sky? And YOU understand and can measure the speed of light, and whether it is faster in one direction then the other. And you understand the problems of synchronizing a Clock in two different places light years apart, and motion displacement and more.
Concerning spiritual things. I have some Pentecostal background as well as various ethnic assemblies and, baptist, assembly of G-d, a bit of Messianic [I could go on] – but for now the Pentecostal part— as a young man, visiting a gathering of the ecclesia with a friend — and early on in the service, a young woman is writhing on the ground – in what can only be described as sexually undulating — and people standing around her shouting out, The Spirit is Upon Her 🙂 — may I say, the ruach hakodesh was not upon her to anoint — perhaps in hindsight she was simply lonely, and she was advertising in some strange way to the men in the church, that she was available. I don’t know. One should be free to question things. Jesus at the age of 12 amazed them with his questions.
Don’t even have a conclusion, just sitting outside the coffee house on the sidewalk, drinking coffee with a few friends, talking about life. And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
Evolutionary Quote 🙂
Richard Dawkins, the evolutionist of Oxford University, said: “It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid, or insane (or wicked, but I’d rather not consider that)”
Evolution is also a “church” with it’s evangelists. It is driven by atheistic reasoning of two kinds. 1. There is no Deity. 2. Since there is no deity, we will be our own “gods”. Those two reasons become the reasoning which supports atheistic evolution. Richard Dawkins then, is one of the evangelists of the Church of Evolution. Under a kingpin spirit which I will assume he is not aware of. I’d rather not consider that he was in direct communion with a kingpin spirit :).
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
[Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit.]
