2013 – The Year Of The Great Comets?

“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1 ESV

Comet in the night skyAccording to astronomers there will be two major celestial events that could make 2013 known as “The Year Of The Comets.” Over the course of the year two different comets are predicted to become visible to the unaided eye from most areas on Earth.

The first of the two comets, 2014 L4 (PanSTARRS), should become visible sometime during the months of March and April. The site will be one that most living people have never seen.

However, the second of the two comets (named Comet Ison) could produce a sight so spectacular that no one in generations has seen! How spectacular? Well if the astronomers’ predictions are correct the comet could even outshine a full moon in the night sky!!

I find the prospect of this second comet to be extremely exciting. Unfortunately, we will need to exercise a bit of patience as this event is not predicted to take place until late November at the earliest.

Unfortunately, many will fail to ascribe glory to the Creator of the universe for these spectacular events. Nevertheless, the truth of God’s Word remains unchanged: ‘The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1.

Are you wondering if there really is a God? Maybe you’re looking for a sign from God? If so just look to the sky! Because the heavens declare His glory! and proclaims His handiwork!! In 2013 the sky will proclaim– even scream– His handiwork.

    I was just watching a video on keeping earth in perspective on YouTube… It us amazing to think how little earth is in comparison with other planets. Almost incomprehensible to the human mind that we seem so incredibly small to a master designer (Yahweh) whose world is in His hands…yet loves us more than the rest of His creation. Yet some of us take His love for us, run away with how much we are worth to Him, and proclaim it to the world around us yet kicking Him out of the equation. Our culture so needs to recognize our creator God for who He is… But there is no way to force God to action as He is also in His timing….not ours.

    PS…..It’s been a while since I’ve been checking your site out as I’ve been trying to spread God’s word on Facebook.

    It’s good to see you’re still staying strong fighting the good fight!

    • Sad but true… our culture has no room for our Lord. Thanks for coming back to DS, I hope it is an encouragement and a help in your walk with the Lord. Glad to hear you are spreading God’s Word on Facebook, what a mission field!
