Lightweight Answers for Heavyweight Questions-7

M55 is a large and lovely globular cluster of around 100,000 stars. Only 20,000 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius,

Today’s question is: “Why God made many stars in the sky?”  This has been one of my   questions that I want to ask the Lord Jesus when He returns.

“The simplest answer is:
"God made billions of galaxies and stars in the firmament (space) spanning many billion light years across so that no man can really comprehend or measure the Greatness of God and revere Him because God is greater than the size of whole universe He created.

I am a beginner star gazer. I am using a small-sized telescope to look into the night sky and cannot observe many objects that I intended to do. Still I am awe-struck when I see the stars in the Orion Constellation. Betelgeuse is a red giant in a stage about to explode to become Nova, the radius of which can reach beyond the orbit of Jupiter from our Sun. To its left below, I see the star, Sirius, a double star and it’s the brightest star in the night sky second to Venus or Jupiter."


We read in, Ecclesiastes 3:14;

“I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.

Ecclesiastes 8:17;

“Then I saw all that God has done. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all his efforts to search it out, man cannot discover its meaning. Even if a wise man claims he knows, he cannot really comprehend it.


Whenever I see the stars in the night sky, then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, “How Grear Thou Art! How Grear Thou Art!”
