Let your light shine
The light from an exploding star 7.5 billion light years away set a record Wednesday for the most distant object ever seen with the naked eye. It's also the brightest gamma-ray burst afterglow ever seen. (aol news)
Light travels at a speed of 186,000 miles a second. Astronauts have attached a mirror to a rock on the moon; scientists on earth can aim a laser at this mirror and measure the travel time of the laser pulse--about two and a half seconds for the round trip. Electro magnetic waves and radio waves travel at the same speed as light, so there is a strong indication that electro magnetic waves and light are similar, perhaps another form of light? How long then is a light year? Five trillion, 879 billion earth miles. (5,878,625,373,183.61 ). How big is the creation, who can know? How vast is the mind of God?
God is pure light, a consuming fire. Light is energy and energy is power. New age thinking and Star Wars theology sees the energy as the force. A force for good and a force for evil. The Bible describes our Father God, as all powerful, the creator of all there is and a person. God is Spiritual and eternal, all powerful persons. In the vastness of light and space and time we know God as the Alpha and the Omega, the same title is given to Jesus, the Son of God and the son of man. They are Spirit as well as another person of God we know as the Holy Spirit. All three are life giving Spirits and are one God. Satan is a fallen star, the power of darkness or possibly spiritual antimatter. Absence of light: For years, astronomers have been baffled by the source of antimatter. Now, researchers say the matter-annihilating material is generated when stars get ripped apart by black holes or neutron stars. In the spiritual, hell is a place without light. Satan's purpose is to lie and to steal kill and destroy. God the Father gave us life, Jesus restores that lost spiritual life and the Holy Spirit keeps it shining and is the personal power to witness this life. Jesus came as a life giving spirit. Jesus is the light of the world. Let your light shine for the gloryof God. Jesus is risen!
