Ever thought how great, mighty, incredible and awesome our God is…. Louie Gigilio in his sermon ” Incredible tour ” help us to understand the bigness of our God. Look for it in YouTube. But let me share some insights. I even don’t know where I can start.
God is the Creator of the universe. For by him all things were created…. Colossians 1:16. ALL things were created by God. Let’s take a look at some of the things he created.
∆ And God said “let there be light and there was light”
This the amazing thing, the light moves at 186000 miles per second oooh my!!! that the speed of light. Did you get me,….I mean 300000 km/s. That how the light came out of God’s mouth. Wow.
∆ The milky way Galaxy
The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy with a diameter between 100,000 light-years and 180,000 light-years.The Milky Way is estimated to contain 100–400 billion stars.There are likely at least 100 billion planets in the Milky Way.
Some incredible facts here; milky way galaxy contains 100- 400 billon stars in other word Gigilio Say’s ” If you count one star per second it will take an average of 2500 years to count the stars in the whole galaxy” more to that there are hundred billions of such galaxies in the universe. Man !!!! and God made the universe????
When I think of this I wonder how and what to call him . I don’t have words to address this God. He is HUGE.
∆ The Sun
It looks beautiful, doesn’t it? Essential is the word, you know it gives us light and warmth. I take Economics and I dropped Geography in form two, probably my younger brother Izoh understands this better he is a Geospatial student, I even don’t know how to pronounce the name of his course. Hehehe…
But back to the sun. It is one of the stars, the brightest of all. It is 150 million kilometers from the earth. Do your maths, how far is that? You got it. Drop you answer in the comment box down there.
The sun sends light to us on earth at a speed of 30000km/s and therefore a beam of light takes 8 minutes to travel to us. Phenomenal. Talk of temperatures; the sun is a raging ball of fire I don’t know how many degrees but I bet Billions of them, Izoh help me here. It’s like billions of nuclear bomb going off every second. Oooh you don’t wanna be near such.
Probably you are wondering where this staff is leading us. The primary purpose why God made the universe is not to home us rather its to show the splendor, the Majesty and the Glory of who created it all. The psalmist said ” The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaims the work of his hands” Psalms 19:1. Your just need to move out now, look up there and watch the stars, think how many, how big there are and you see the glory of the creator. I mean its just indescribable.
Our God is amazing, indescribable, incredible, bigger than our dreams, bigger than we have ever thought or even imagined, bigger than our biggest step of faith.
He is a star breather, Yes He breathed out the sun and billions of them that are in the universe. He asked Isaiah ” to whom will you compare me ? Or who is my equal? Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: who created all these? He who brings out starry host one by one, and calls them each by name because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing”Isaiah 40:25-26″ I have no words to expound this..
But as I Conclude to continue latter here is your home work. You remember Job, that guy who feared the Lord who God himself testified that there was no one like him,blameless and upright man who shun evil? You remember him…
Brace yourself like a man God want to ask you some questions.. ” Have you comprehend the vast expense of the earth, Tell me,if you know all this… ” Job 38……..
