The Sky Speaks

The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Psalm 19:1

The birth of Christ was written in the sky … And His death.

As discussed in the previous blog, using modern technology we can view the exact location of the solar system at any given time and place.

So, dial your clocks to the day Christ died.

Buckle your seat belts and gaze with me into the sky.

The apostle Peter spoke of what we’re about to see in Acts when attempting to settle an unruly crowd. He quoted the prophet Joel.

On the day of His crucifixion the sky turned black, the moon blood red. The earth shook, rocks split and the veil in the temple was torn from the top to the bottom, signifying direct access to The Holy of Holies; direct access to God Himself. Matthew 27:45-54

Consider the symbolism in the sky during the life of Christ: New Life in Virgin Mary begins during Jewish New Year and new moon at the foot of the constellation Virgo, the virgin. And Jesus' bloody death takes place at the start of Passover (a blood sacrifice) with a bloody full moon at the foot of Virgo.

Now, the moment that gets me. Examine the sky the moment Jesus breathed his last, around the ninth hour, 3:00 p.m. The moon went into total lunar eclipse, a blood moon.

At that moment earth hung between sun and moon.

Jesus hung between heaven and earth.

At that moment the sins of the world, blotted out the Light of the world.

At that moment the Light of the world, blotted out the sins of the world.

At that moment Jesus,

gave His life.

At that moment Jesus,

gave us life.

He died.

So we,



Oh how He loves you and me.

He knew the moment He hurled the stars in place naming them one by one. He set them in motion knowing what He was about to create would cause Him to suffer. To die.

The Creator would lay down His life for the created. He knew He would hang on an old rugged cross, bloody bruised and beaten. He knew the moment he would take His last breath and He wrote it in the sky for us to see.

With blurred vision I type these last few words.

And three days later He rose…

He lives. He lives. He lives. Ask me how I know He lives. He lives within my heart.

Amazing, Doug. Astounding. The more we learn about physics, biology, science and astronomy, the more we know about our Creator. "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made.."--Romans 1:20. Indeed, the heavens declare the glory of God.

"He hurled the stars in place naming them one by one." It's extraordinary, isn't it? He hurled the stars -- and he holds each one of us in his arms.

I appreciate all the study put into this. Science supports Scripture, right down to the creation taking place in six literal days and Noah's flood destroying the dinosaurs who co-existed with humanity.

When we study the miraculous, it occasionally merges with science. The two may meet here, and I don't dispute that. But more importantly than finding an explanation that may or may not match up with the Bible is believing that the Creator who spoke an entire universe into existence may use science to explain His signs, but He does not need science to fulfill His signs.

As extraordinary as this explanation is, far more extraordinary is this:

At that moment the sins of the world, blotted out the Light of the world.

At that moment the Light of the world, blotted out the sins of the world.

He hurled the stars into place ... indeed! And He hurled our sins into the abyss. Hallelu Yah! I am alive and I am free!
