The Challenger

 

 

 

Thirty years ago yesterday, January 28, the Challenger explosion happened. The NASA family lost seven of its own on the morning of Jan. 28, 1986, when a booster engine failed, causing the Shuttle Challenger to break apart just 73 seconds after launch over Cape Canaveral, Florida. America watched in horror as the Challenger exploded.

7 people lost their lives, only one was known to be saved, he was Ronald McNair.

Here are the names of the people who died during this tragic accident: Michael J. Smith, Dick Scobee, Ronald McNair; (back row) Ellison Onizuka,  Christa McAuliffe (a high school teacher from Concord, New Hampshire. She was chosen to go into space in the 1985 teacher in space project. ) , Gregory Jarvis,  and Judith Resnik.

NASA has many theories on why the Challenger exploded. But, one known reason is unsure. Some say that it was because it had been coldest day in the history of shuttle launches. But, main reason they are leaning towards is booster failure.

I pray each one of these people had a chance to come to know the Lord Jesus Christ before they died.

This is an example that you can’t wait to be saved! You never know when you may die.  You may die right now! Do you know where you would wake up? Heaven or Hell? Never say “I’ll get saved later, or when I’m older.” How do you know that you will live that long? You don’t, only God knows. Believe in Jesus today, don’t wait.

Don’t wait to accept Jesus. You never know when God will call you home.

Psalm 118:8  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man

Genesis 1:1….. God created the heavens and the earth!

Psalm 33:6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host.

Genesis 1:14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years,

Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

Isaiah 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name, by the greatness of his might, and because he is strong in power not one is missing.

John 1:3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made

Job 26:7 He stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing.

Psalm 8:3-4 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

Genesis 1: 3-9 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. And God said, “Let there be an expanse[a] in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And God made[b] the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And God called the expanse Heaven.[c] And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry land Earth,[d] and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

Job 38:4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

Job 38:31-32 KJV Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

Job 38: 31-32 NIV Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs?

Definitions:  #1 Pleaides=group of 7 stars, constellation, otherwise know as the 7 sisters.

#2 Orion= a constellation that looks like a hunter, you can find it in the nighttime sky if you look for the three stars that make up his belt.

#3 Bear= Ursa major, otherwise know as the big dipper.

#4 Cubs= Ursa minor, otherwise know as the little dipper.

#5 Mazzoroth– It means the zodiac. NOT the zodiac signs. That is fortune telling. If you say your… ex. Gemini than that means you will have a long life or something. Another name for it is your horoscope. Only God can see the future so don’t go using the constellations as fortune telling tools. I repeat DON’T GO USING THE CONSTELLATIONS FOR FINDING YOUR HOROSCOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ONLY GOD AND GOD ALONE CAN SEE THE FUTURE!!!!

#5 (continued) Mazzoroth -The meaning is a group of constellations called the zodiac.The zodiac is a group of constellations~Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces.

There are some points I would like to make here….

#1 God made the planets, galaxies, stars, everything!! How do we know this? Because the bible says so. God is talking to Job in Job 38:4 saying Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. That I in bold is God. God laid the foundations of the Earth! God made everything.

#2 We know there is constellations and galaxies, and planets, and heaven because the bible says so. In Genesis 1:1 the very beginning of the bible it says In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

#3 Evolution is false. I mean in the very first book of the bible it says God created the heavens and the Earth. Natura non facit saltum- was quoted by Issac Newton which means Nature does not jump. Nature could not have jumped its self  into existence. There was no big bang expect for when God said Let there be____ and Bang there it was. We didn’t evolve from an ooze either. It specifically says in Genesis 1:26 Let us make man in our own image. Who is us? God the father, God the son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit, three but yet one. If we evolved from monkeys then why are there monkeys today. Same thing with birds, reptiles etc. I mean babies are being born everyday! In the beginning GOD Created the heavens and the earth.

Like the song goes… “More than a million, trillion stars, lighting up the night. Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars, oh what a sight! The splendor of the universe can’t compare to what we are going to see when we get there. (heaven). To heaven, heaven, heaven, is a free gift. To heaven, heaven, heaven, is a free gift.  You can go but, you can’t pay and it could happen any day! To heaven, heaven, heaven, is a free gift!”
