Jeremiah 23:23-24 “Am I a God who is near,” declares the Lord,
“And not a God far off? Can a person hide himself in hiding places So that I do not see him?” declares the Lord. “Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?” declares the Lord.
This verse was the suggested reading from Biblegateway and it reminded me of Psalm 139 and then a spontaneous poem –
Oh Lord, You’ve searched me
And You know me
You know when I sit
And when I rise
Nothing, nothing’s ever hidden
From Your eyes
From Your eyes
Oh where can I go to find
You’re not with me?
Where I can I be and find
You’re not there
Since, since You’re always with me
Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?
If I say
That darkness shall
And the light
Oh it’s so far away
It will never
It will never be dark to You
You shine like the day
Shine like the day
Your Light guides my way
In darkness You saw
My unformed body
Earth’s foundations were laid
I know that I am fearfully
And wonderfully made
.I ran across the article above (and if anyone is reading this, I do hope you click on the link to read it)
1) – the title – Scream of Black Hole’s Birth Heard across the Universe. A Black Hole screams across the universe when it is being formed. A Black Hole is the death of a star.
Excerpt from article: Satellite telescopes spotted an exceptionally bright burst of energy that would have been the most distant object in the universe ever visible to the naked eye, if anyone saw it.
Even though no humans have reported seeing it directly, the gamma-ray burst, an explosion that signals the violent death of a massive star, is changing theories of how these events look. Gamma ray bursts are typically accompanied by intense releases of other forms of radiation, from X-rays to visible light.
This burst, dubbed GRB 080319B, was first detected by the Swift satellite on March 19, while the spacecraft was serendipitously looking at another gamma-ray burst in the same area of the sky.
2) When the Black Hole occurred (7.4 Billion Years ago) and when it was actually seen (March 19, 2008) So what we see with our visible eyes today did not just happen.
Excerpt – It took the light of GRB 080319B about 7.4 billion years to reach Earth, placing the explosion “more than halfway back to the Big Bang and the origin of our universe,” Grindlay wrote in an editorial accompanying a new study of the burst in the Sept. 10 issue of the journal Nature.
This means that the explosion happened 3 billion years before the sun or Earth even formed, Grindlay added. When astronomers see such distant objects, they are in effect looking back in time.
3) The image of the black hole – Do you see the baby? The black hole that was captured is the image here of a baby. A death of a star. Its birth screams were heard. Do you see this?
From Searching for Israel: Genesis 22:16-18 records God’s embellishment of the promise on the occasion of Abraham’s “sacrifice” of his son Isaac:
“By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son, in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
God promises to multiply Abraham and to give him control of strategic military and commercial positions, “gates,” in his enemies’ territories. As we will see, this promise speaks of the geopolitical advantage God later gave Abraham’s descendents. God bases this promise on Abraham’s obedience of the command to sacrifice his son, Isaac, a sacrifice God of course stopped just before the knife fell. Note, too, that this promise has the effect of an oath, in that God swears by Himself.
Since this is the last recorded promise to Abraham, it is fitting that God should refer to His first promise, recorded in Genesis 12:1-3. God reminds Abraham of His promise that his seed would be a blessing to all nations.
In Galatians 3:16, Paul makes it plain that this “Seed” is Christ. Christ, who is in the lineage of Abraham, blazed a trail by which all peoples could ultimately develop a relationship with the Father. Christ’s work makes it possible for God to be our God, according to the promise of Genesis 17:7-8. Christ is indeed a blessing to all nations. *********************************
I believe that the Lord is saying in this sign in the heavens that the sin of abortion, the taking of innocent blood, is a direct cause of the loss of our militiary strategy, power, and favor in our nation. Abraham was willing, as an act of obedience to the Lord to sacrifice his son, but He heard the Lord’s promise of another sacrifice, a perfect sacrifice, Jesus Christ.
Deuteronomy 19:9, 10 If you keep all these commandments to do them, which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God and to walk always in His ways, then you shall add three other cities to these three, lest innocent blood be shed in your land, which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, and so blood guilt be upon you.
Ps 106:37, 38 Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with their blood.
Joel 3:19 Egypt shall be a desolation and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness for their violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
On June 24, 2022 – the decision of Roe V Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court.
Look up into the skies. I believe there will be many stars shining in the heavens from this day forth.
