This magnificent, far-reaching telescope is deliberately situated above the smog so this powerful instrument can better probe the galaxies. So it is with life and seeing by the lens of faith. If we are to see things more clearly, we too must lift ourselves above the secular smog. Then, in the words of the hymn, we can in awesome wonder consider all the worlds God's hands have made and see God's power throughout the universe displayed. Otherwise, we will be kept from probing Jesus's universal gospel and from seeing things as they really are. Nevertheless, by viewing the stretching cosmos, we can humbly contemplate the vastness of divine handiwork. Long before He was born in Bethlehem and became known as Jesus of Nazareth, our Savior was Jehovah. Way back then, under the direction of the Father, Christ was the Lord of the universe who created worlds without number, of which ours is only one. How many planets are there in the universe with people on them? We don't know. But we are not alone in the universe. God is not the God of only one planet. I testify that Jesus is truly the Lord of the universe, that by Christ, and through Him, and of Him, the worlds are and were created and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God. When Christ comes again, it will not be to the meekness of the manger. It will be as the recognized Redeemer and the Lord of the universe. Then, in a great solar display, stars will fall from their places in a witnessing way with much more drama than at His birth, when the stars and the heavens looked down where He lay. Yet in the vastness of His creations, the Lord of the universe, who notices the fall of every sparrow, is our personal Savior, of which I give apostolic testimony in the holy name of Jesus Christ, amen.
