Listen to the beautiful words of this little song…

.

VERSE 1.

.

“The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest Hell…

.

VERSE 3.

.

“…Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill, And every man a scribe by trade; To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.”

.

Verse 3 of this song was penciled on the wall of a narrow room in an insane asylum by a man said to have been demented. The profound lines were discovered when they laid him in his coffin.

A QUICK-TEMPERED WRATHFUL GOD?

.

When a person first begins to read the Bible, it is quickly seen that God is a somewhat short-tempered, vengeful God, who was quick to destroy His enemies.

.

This same theme continues throughout the Old Testament, more or less. As a matter of fact the Old Testament ends with the very last words, “Lest I come and smite the earth with a curse!” Malachi 4:6

.

But lo, and behold, the New Testament begins to reveal Jesus Christ, a gentle, merciful Savior, who never harmed even one person! And so, many are puzzled as to just how this could be! Are there two Gods in God’s Book? A sort of, “bad cop, and a good cop”, as the saying goes?

FINDING JESUS

.

God has purposely presented Himself as a sort of jig-saw puzzle, which must be http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triumphal_entry_into_Jerusalem#/media/File:Enrique_Simonet_-_Flevit_super_illam_-_1892.jpggradually pieced together.

.

And even in the Old Testament, God’s great love and mercy shines through all that justice and anger!

.

Listen… “Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.” Psalm 107:43

.

As this above verse advises, those who are wise will observe the workings of God in the world.

.

And then they will begin to see the evidences of God’s merciful dealings with the children of men, in both, the big and small details of life!

WHY GOD ALLOWS SO MUCH EVIL

.

But why does He allow so many bad things to happen in the world?

.David's sorrow - Wikigallery - Public Domain

Well, for one thing, God is wanting us to turn back to Him. Listen… “For the Lord will not cast off for ever: But though He cause grief, yet will He have compassion according to the multitude of His mercies. For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD. Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.” Lamentations 3:31-33, 40, 41

 

.

So here is another Old Testament passage which shines through all the woe and misery! God is trying to get us to turn back to Him! But if our lives were simply like that proverbial “bed of roses”, then we would never return to the Lord, would we?

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”  Matthew 24:29, 30

STRETCHED FROM SKY TO SKY

.

In 2012, this constellation was revealed. It is comprised of all the other constellations on this website, as they appear in the night-sky. The only way to really see this constellation, is to become very familiar with this website. This is because this incredible constellation spans both the summer and winter skies. This constellation is actually in a semi-circle, as it appears in the night-sky. These pictures, however, show it as it would appear straightened out.

.Son Of Man Constellation

There is an old song which goes… “The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest Hell

.

But the last verse of this song says… “Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill, And every man a scribe by trade; To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.” Now what makes all this so extremely interesting, is that this verse was found scribbled on the wall of a deceased “insane” person’s cell in a psychiatric sanitarium, upon removing his corpse.

.

And little did this “insane” man realize, that God had actually written His love and inscribed that love on the scroll (of the sky). And God had actually stretched that picture of love from sky to sky, just as the song-verse said.

.

And now God has revealed this heavenly portrait of the Son of Man, writhing in pain for a planet who cares very little for Him. (These constellations span both summer and winter sky, and this constellation in this picture to the right actually appears much more curved in the sky.)

.

And just like the Bible God has made these signs in such a way, that they are true enough for the Believers to believe; but doubtful enough for the scorners to scorn.   

.

“With the merciful Thou (God) wilt show Thyself merciful; with an upright man Thou wilt show Thyself upright; With the pure Thou wilt show Thyself pure; and with the froward Thou wilt show Thyself froward. For Thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. Psalm 18:25-27
