The Greatest Mega Dark Hole Can Never Suck in The Light of Life and Truth As It Is In Jesus
“Avoid profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called; which some professing have erred concerning the faith.” 1 Timothy 6: 20, K.J.V.
Last week we first laid down the vital, self-evident cautions and precautions, called “the parents of safety” whenever attempting to tread the holy ground of the Mystery of mysteries of Bible called “the great mystery of godliness” in the incarnation of Creator (1 Tim. 3: 16), remembering that “fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” David says who such fools are and why: “The fool has said in his heart (mind), there is no God.’ See Psalms 14: 1-3, 5, etc. If a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, hopefully, we have made those right steps, grounded in humility moving forward as we must, for inspiration tells us not only is this precious subject a fruitful field for study but the unfolding of truths emanating from and connected with it will continue through eternity for the redeemed.
On Black Holes, Light and Life
This cannot be mere coincidence. Because they are clearly interconnected, as will be seen moving forward, we must of a necessity continue considering more of our last week’s take on black holes. The latest breakthrough of finally obtaining visible pictures of what they look like, and the heightened excitement over its now-bolstered interpretations contain serious implications in the fulfillment of last-day prophecies, particularly regarding creation. Anything having to do with man’s salvation has a deeper and greater spiritual meaning and thus must be viewed through these lenses if we would successfully cut through the all the mist, fluff, chatter and noise and get to the real bottom of things when tracing from cause to effect.
The children and youth have, as an inheritance, what they learn and are given now starting from their youngest, formative ages. By extension, it is in this awesome sense that they are in fact, our future now. The Bible, Mr. Common Sense, and Mrs. Experience say the same thing: “What we sow we shall reap.” Gal. 6: 7. “He who sows iniquity will reap iniquity.” Prov. 22: 8. “If we sow the wind,” instead of wheat, “shall reap the whirlwind.” Hos. 8: 7. But in stark contrast, “They that sow in tears, shall reap in joy.” Ps. 126: 5. Therefore, “Sow for yourselves in righteousness; reap in mercy.” Hos. 10:12. Now, consider what the children of our day are being taught now, termed as advancing knowledge. Let’s zoom into the science of astrophysics for now since we are talking about “black holes.” The information following is from the official website identified as such and is for K-4 audience.
“What is a Black Hole?
A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light cannot get out.
The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying. [There is no death except here on fallen earth!]
Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible. Space telescopes with special tools can help find black holes. The special tools can see how stars that are very close to the black holes act differently from other stars.
“How Big Are Black Holes?
Black holes can be big or small. Scientists think that the smallest black holes are the size of just one atom. These black holes are very tiny but have the mass of a great mountain. Mass is the amount of matter, or ‘stuff,’ in an object.
Another kind of black hole is called ‘stellar.’ Its mass can be up to 20 times more than the mass of the sun. There may be many, many stellar masses black holes in Earth’s galaxy. Earth’s galaxy is called the Milky Way.
The largest black holes are called ‘supermassive.’ These black holes have masses that are
more than 1 million suns together. Scientist have found proof that every large galaxy contains a
supermassive black hole at its center. The supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way
galaxy is called Sagittarius A. it has a mass equal to about 4 million suns and would fit inside a
very large ball that could hold a few million Earths.
“How Do Black Holes Form?
Scientists think the smallest black holes formed when the universe began.* Stellar black holes
are made when the center of a very big star falls in upon itself, or collapses. When this happens,
it causes a supernova. A supernova is an exploding star that blasts part of the star into space.
Scientists think that supermassive black holes were made at the same time as the galaxy they
“If Black Holes Are ‘Black,’ How Do Scientists Know That They Are There?
A black hole cannot be seen because strong gravity pulls all the light into the
middle of the black hole. But scientists can see how strong the gravity affects the stars and gas
around the black hole. Scientists can study stars to find out if they are flying around, or orbiting
a black hole. When a black hole and a star are close together, high-energy light is made. This
kind of light cannot be seen with human eyes. Scientists use satellites and telescopes in space to
see the high-energy light.
“Could A Black Hole Destroy Earth?
Black holes do not go around in space eating stars, moons and planets. Earth will not fall
into a black hole because no black hole is close enough to the solar system for the earth to do
that. Even if a black hole the same mass as the sun were to take place of the sun, Earth still
would not fall in. The black hole would have the same gravity as the sun. Earth and the other
planets would orbit the black hole as they orbit the sun now. The sun will never turn into a black
hole. [Why?] The sun is not a big enough star to make a black hole.” (end of quote).
OK. Scientists (who can’t even agree among themselves) are now saying that “A black hole is a
place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light cannot get out.” Bible students
know from Genesis–the book of beginnings describing the history of creation of the heavens
and the earth–that in the real beginning there was absolutely nothing before it to begin
anything. The divine description of this nothingness, which all can understand by its sheer
simplicity, is: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep.” Gen. 1: 1.
Then, God in whom alone life original, unborrowed and underived, thus the fountainhead of all life, began all action and activity as we know it, by speaking things into being—the creative word power calledfiat. The first thing He first spoke into being was light. “Then God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.” Gen. 1-5, NKJV.
John the beloved also calls God, the Word in the beginning, from the beginning. “In the beginning was the Word, and Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made (created) by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended (overpowered, margin) it not.” John 1: 1-5, K.J.V.
Paul amplifies this most fundamental of all truths in the following Scriptures: “He (Christ, the incarnated Creator) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” Col. 1: 15-19, NKJV. Note that. He is before all things. All things were made by Him and for Him!
When and how did the universe begin? Hypothetical science avers that “the smallest black holes formed when the universe began.” This raises the question: When did the universe begin? Outside of what the Word teaches, we enter the realm of spiritual Babylon, its root word being babel, meaning confusion. Adding further to the confusing, heady mix of answers from the wisemen of the earth, who can’t agree among themselves, here’s more. According to Bishop Usher, Genesis places the creation of the world at 9 AM in the morning of Oct. 27, 4004 B.C. The Greek philosopher Aristotle believed the universe has existed forever. The late British physicist Stephen Hawkings says: “Something eternal is more perfect than something created.” Furthermore, he opines, “the General Theory of Relativity [Einstein’s brainchild] and the expansion of the universe shattered the old picture of an ever existing and everlasting universe.” From the website Live Science on
“How did the universe come to be? “It is perhaps the greatest Great Mystery, and the root of all others.The rest of humanity’s grand questions—How did life begin? What is consciousness? What is dark matter, dark energy, gravity?—stem from it. ‘All other mysteries lie downstream to this question,’ said Ann Druyan, the author and widow of Carl Sagan. ‘It matters to me because I am human and do not like not knowing.’
“Even as theories attempting to solve this mystery grew increasingly complex [human solutions create more problems], scientists are haunted by the possibility that some of the most critical links in their chain of reasoning is wrong.
“Fundamental Mysteries. According to the standard Big Bang model, the universe was born during a period that began about 13.7 billion years ago. Like a rapidly-expanding balloon, it swelled from a size smaller than an electron to nearly its current size within a fraction of a second.
“Initially the universe was permeated only by energy [where did it originate?]. Some of the energy congealed into particles, which assembled into light atoms like hydrogen and helium. These atoms clumped first into galaxies, then stars, inside whose fiery furnaces all other elements were forged. [what a grand forgery].
“This is the generally agreed-upon picture of our universe’s origin as depicted by scientists. It is a powerful model that explains many of things scientists see when they look up into the sky, such as the remarkable smoothness of space-time on large scales and the even distribution of galaxies on opposite sides of the universe.
“But there are things about it that make scientists uneasy [and they should!] For starters, the idea that that the universe underwent a period of rapid inflation early in its history cannot be directly tested, and it relies on the existence of a mysterious form of energy in the universe’s beginning that has long disappeared. ‘Inflation is a powerful theory, and yet we still have no idea that caused inflation—or whether it is even the correct theory, although it works extremely well [?],’ said Eric Agol, an astrophysicist at the University of Washington.
‘For some scientists, inflation is a clunky addition to the Big Bang model, a necessary complexity appended to make it fit with observations. Nor was it the last such addition.
‘We’ve also learned there has to be dark matter in the universe, and now dark energy, said Paul Steinhardt, a theoretical physicist at Princeton University. ‘So the way the model works today is, ‘Ok, you take some Big Bang, you take some inflation, you tune that to have the following properties, then you add a certain amount of dark matter and dark energy. These things aren’t connected in a coherent theory.’
‘What’s disturbing is that when you have a theory and you make a new observation, you have to add new components,’ Steinhardt added. ‘And they’re not connected…..There’s no reason to add them, and no particular reason to add them to that particular amount, except the observation. The question is how much you’re explaining and how much you’re engineering a model. And we don’t know yet.’
“An Ageless Universe. In recent years, Steinhardt has been working with colleague Neil Turok at Cambridge University on a radical alternative to the standard Big Bang model.
‘According to the idea, called the ekpyrotic universe theory, the universe was born not just once, but multipole times in endless cycles of fiery death and rebirth. [Sounds eerily familiar!] Enormous sheet-like ‘branes’ [not brains!], representing different parts of our universe, collide about once every trillion years, triggering Big Bang-like explosions that re-inject matter and energy into the universe.
“The pair claims that their ekpyrotic theory raises the possibility that the universe is ageless and self-renewing [eerily familiar, again]. It is a prospect perhaps even more awe-inspiring than a universe with a definite beginning and end, for it would mean that stars in the sky, even the oldest ones, are like short-lived fireflies in the grand scheme of things.
‘Does the universe resemble any of the physical models we make of it? ‘Id like to hope that the effort that society pours into scientific research is getting us closer to fundamental truths, and not just a way to make useful tools,’ said Caltech astronomer Richard Massey. ‘But I’m equally terrified of finding out that everything I know is wrong, and secretly hope that I don’t.’” (End of quote from this website). The wisest mortal that ever walked this earth, Solomon, prophetically referring to our day and age, wrote: “Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions(schemes, N.K.J.V.).” Eccl. 7: 29.
