Astronomers Find Massive Hole In The Universe|

This link was sent to me by my friend Olli-Pekka. I
first heard about this on Jack Van Impe Ministries some
years ago, and it truly is fascinating. "Big Bang"
theory teaches that the universe we live in should be
uniform throughout no matter which direction we look in.
An explosion at a specific point in space should radiate
matter equally in every direction. But astronomers are
puzzled at just how un-uniform our universe is, with
massive super clusters of galaxies spanning many
millions of light years across interspersed by voids of
similar sizes. There is not enough gravity in the
universe to explain the formation of such structures,
and scientists have since tried to come up with various
theories to explain them, such as Cold Dark Matter (CDM)
- an invisible type of matter which scientists tell us
accounts for most of the matter in the universe. But
astronomers have discovered a massive
hole in the northern part of the universe which
spans nearly a billion light years, and doesn't seem to
have any detectable CDM near it.
Quote: "The hole is nearly a
billion light-years across. It is not a black hole,
which is a small sphere of densely packed matter.
Rather, this one is mostly devoid of stars, gas and
other normal matter, and it's also strangely empty of
the mysterious "dark matter" that permeates the cosmos.
Other space voids have been found before, but nothing on
this scale. Astronomers don't know why the hole is
The hole is located near the constellation of Orion,
in the north. Jack Van Impe stated in his programme that
he believes the Bible indicates that God's heaven is in
a northerly direction from planet Earth. Jack mentioned
two verses in relation to this discovery...
(Satan) hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into
heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I
will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the
sides of the north:
out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the
earth upon nothing.
Jack suggested that this hole may be the entrance to
God's heaven. Personally I don't know whether it is or
not, but I do believe that one day soon, all those have
trusted in Christ for salvation will be taken up through
the heavens into the Father's House (John 14). My friend
Olli-Pekka reminded me of that Scripture about the last
days, which states that the constellations will not give
their light. In Hebrew, the word for "constellations" in
this verse, "Kesil", can also mean specifically the
constellation of Orion.
day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce
anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy
the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven
and the constellations thereof shall not give their
light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and
the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
