A recent meteor shower displayed to the world the Glory of Jesus Christ

JD: Are we misusing the term shower? Is it the Earth going through all these items in space or are they actually falling towards the Earth?

DD: Well these debris clouds are orbiting the sun as well and what happens is our orbit of our Earth happens to intersect their orbit that’s when we see them. So everything is moving. We actually move through there and we would say we sweep them up. So our gravity captures them so then they fall through the upper air.

Now some of these particles Jimmy are large enough that they do not vaporize. They’ll survive the trip and hit the ground and then they become a meteorite and people collect those. These are either metal or rock. They’re rather rare these rocks from space that can be found on the ground.

JD: But all of this a part of God’s creative act there in chapter 1 on the fourth day right?

DD: Well it certainly is Jimmy and further more these meteor showers I would say are showing the growing old of the Earth. If these were previous comets that have disintegrated there gone and now they’re sweeping up their debris I think it’s all a demonstration that the Earth is growing old, waxing old like a garment as scripture says and wearing down. Of course some day the Lord will return and make a new Heavens and new Earth because this present one is fading away.

JD: Until that time as Psalm 19 tells us the Heavens do declare His glory. And it’s great to be able to watch all of these things happening isn’t it?

DD: Well it certainly is. It’s part of the beauty of space. Yes, even in a world that’s far from perfect under the fall, under the curse we can still see the beauty in the way the Lord has set up this whole system for our well being. And meteor showers are just another dramatic sign of God’s presence and His control over all things.

JD: Don DeYoung with the details behind the recent meteor shower that displayed the glory of the Lord to the entire world.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

In Don’s report on the recent meteor shower he said that these showers are evidence that this Earth is winding down or actually dying. Revelation 21 speaks of a new Heaven and a new Earth. II Peter 3:10 says that this old Earth and Heaven will burn up and then the new. With four words Jesus brought the Heavens and all that is in them into existence on the fourth day of creation. Isaiah 65:17 also speaks of a new Heaven and a new Earth. Once again Jesus will create that new Heaven and new Earth. However until that happens these Heavens we see today declare the glory of the Lord, that’s Psalm 19. The Lord is in control of everything.
