This post provides great background information for learning about God’s creation when ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.’  (Gen 1:1)  

WHAT IS THE UNIVERSE, how old and how large is it, and how many planets, stars, and galaxies does it contain?

The Universe is everything in the heavens that surrounds our planet Earth. Ge1:1 states In the beginning God created the heaven and the EarthScriptures declared that Jesus is the Creator of the Universe ‘ whom also  he (Jesus) made the worlds He1:2; that ‘.. ALL THINGS were made by (Jesus); and without (Jesus) was not any thing made that was made.. Jn1:3. Jesus upholds ‘.. ALL THINGS by the word of his power’ He1:3. JESUS, THE MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE, by His awesome power, upholds ALL THINGSsuch that nothing collides and crashesbut everything remains in their proper order, rotation, and orbit in space.

Astronomers probe the Universe dailyusing mega-telescopes in pristine mountain locationsto scan and study the night skiesVast information has been gathered since the 20th century with great advancement in telemetry, satellitesand computersOne great advancement was the 1990 launching of the Hubble Space Telescope in a low-earth orbit.  Still in operation today, the Hubble telescope is discovering new planets, starsand galaxiesand sending spectacular and beautiful pictures of the outer reaches of our Universenever seen before Scientists place the Universe at about 14 billion years oldand the Earth, 4.5 billion years.

Since the Universe is still expandingits size may be infinite.  Presentlyit has a radius of about 46 billion light-yearsa light-year is a distance equal to about 5.9 trillion milesIn the Universethere are innumerable planetsand over 100 million galaxieswith over 300 sextillion (3×1023) starsOur Earththe Moon, and the Sun are in the Milky Way Galaxyroughly 100,000 light-years in diameterThe distance from the Earth to the Moon is only 235,000 milesand to the Sun93 million milesOur Sun is so large that about 1.3 million earths could fit in itwith temperatures over 5600° C.  But our Sun is small relative to many other starsthe largest known star being 2600 times greater(Source- Wikipedia)

Our Universe is held together in perfect balance by THE WORD OF JESUSPOWER He1:3. If the Earth was much further awayor closer in its annual orbit around the Sunwe would either freeze or roast to deathAlsothe  Moon besides giving us light at nightits gravitational pull controls the tides in the oceans such that beaches and harbors would not have extreme tidal changesand the moon keeps the Earth from wobbling in its daily rotationThough the Earth is 4.5 billion years oldman’s time on it has been very shortbeing only about 6000 years from Adam to us today.

So why did Jesus so long ago put so many stars in the heavens, and made the Universe so vast with all its energy, power, and glory, and for what purpose? Ecc3:1 states To every thing there is a seasonand A Time To Every Purpose Under The Heaven. 1Co2:9 states Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for Them That Love Him..’Since God is Almighty and very purposeful, He has a great Eternal Plan for the Universe, and also for those who love Him.  (Over 4,000 years ago, God revealed His plan for mankind in the  Mazzaroth or  Zodiac/Biblical astrology before it was corrupted into modern astrology which has its focus on horoscope- my note).  

Hopefully, this brief discussion will give everyone an appreciation of THE GREATNESS OF JESUS CHRIST– THE MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE!
