Creation: Earth in the unimaginably vast Universe

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork.” -Psalm 19:1

Do you want to see how our Earth, that tiny blue marble in the solar system, compares to other bodies in the Universe?

Try to imagine the truly awesome, mind-boggling Being who created all this — this unimaginably vast Universe that our puny human pea-brain can’t even begin to grasp or comprehend.
It is said that when St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), the towering intellect and theologian, was near death, he was given a glimpse of the Godhead. Humbled and awed, he whispered, referring to all of the many and brilliant works he had written in his lifetime: “All is straw.”
No wonder our Lord Jesus the Christ, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead who humbled Himself by incarnating as vulnerable body and flesh, instructed us that:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:16)

  1. Who but God. Hangs the Earth on not even a thread, spins it like a top and it never makes a sound. Who but God.

     
  2. Humbling, is it not?
    To fully realize we are the children of the master builder requires a certain humility. The proud, on the other hand, cannot admit the presence of a master workman, for by doing so they feel diminished.
    My opinion, worth all you payed for it.

     
  3. “But atheists would have you believe all of this came from nothing!”
    I admit it, I simply don’t have the enormous amount of faith it takes to be an atheist.

     
    • “Oh Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder,
      Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
      I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
      Thy power throughout the Universe displayed!
      Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee,
      How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
      Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee,
      How great Thou art! How great Thou art!”
      [This song came up on my stereo only a short time after I enjoyed this article and photos.]

       
  4. What is just as infinitely fascinating and awe-inspiring is the minuteness of the universe as well. The universe, so large we cannot truly imagine it, is made up of particles so small, we cannot truly imagine those either. The atom, the electrons, the protons and neutrons and the even smaller particles within those particles, are all on a scale beyond our comprehension. And God made it all.

     
  5. Reblogged this on Patriotic Gofer and commented:
    I was pleasantly surprised to find this article today. I’d originally seen this info on a video that a friend loaned me. When it comes right down to it, it’s hard to even imagine the fullness and size of all Creation. How many galaxies do you think have planets just like Earth? How many planets with intelligent life? God knows! Hopefully, when it’s our time to leave our Earthly body, maybe we’ll be able to soar through the “Heavens” and see all of what He created. Never know!!!

     
    • That’s correct Patriot we don’t know what exactly, but the Apostle Paul wrote and spoke about the unimaginable things God has planned for those who love Him. I believe this is part of it{:-)

       
  6. Totally awesome – a zillion thanks for this reminder that God is still in charge, and has done a beautiful job of it!

     
  7. Who can possibly comprehend it? Who can possibly comprehend what goes on in a single living cell?
    And can this Creator, this God, forgive me of all my sins, and take my career in sin, and wipe it out???
    WHO can fathom it? And yet it is true! Dear Lord God, HOW GREAT THOU ART!

     
  8. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this most magnificent post. St. Thomas Aquinas never wrote another word after his vision of Our Lord.
