I remember sitting in a doctor’s office several years ago and picking up a science magazine in the waiting room and being in total awe of the most impressive picture I’ve ever seen. Astronomers had pointed the Hubble telescope into a tiny spot of space that was completely dark on a star map and they turned on Hubble’s “deep field” sensors. For 11 days, the sensors picked up light that had been traveling for billions of light years. Within that tiny dark spot of space was revealed over 10,000 galaxies filled with stars. The article explained this is like taking a grain of sand and holding it at your arms length and then blowing it up to full size. Imagine how many grains of sand you could fit in a sphere all around you and each one of those grains of sand holding tens of thousands of galaxies each holding millions or billions of solar systems.

It’s no wonder Enoch exclaimed, “And were it possible that man could number the particles of the earth, yea, millions of earths like this, it would not be a beginning to the number of thy creations; and thy curtains are stretched out still; and yet thou art there, and thy bosom is there; and also thou art just; thou art merciful and kind forever;” (Moses 7:30)

This video graphically portrays this awesome picture.

    Steve, it’s not my video. To get to the source, click where it says YouTube in the lower right corner. I’m also going to edit your post and remove my email so spambots don’t pick it up. 🙂 Anyone can reach me through the contact page on my main site.
