    A question and my answer… 

    Question: Steve, I find it very interesting that the CERN-Large Hadron Collider underground tunnel is 17,000 miles in circumference in Geneva, Switzerland and the ISS Satellite is traveling in space at 17,000 per hour…is there a connection here?

    Answer: The correlation of things in the heavens and things on the Earth is very prominent in God’s Word, Ephesians 1:10 as an example. Keeping in mind that as long as man disregards God’s plan, man is still trying to build the tower to heaven, see Gen. 11 and at that the Word says there is nothing new under the sun-Ecc. 1:9!

    At the base of the tower or the CERN, as an example is man’s attempt to discover the “god particle” or that particle which created and holds together the Universe. See Col. 1:16,17. The top of the tower, as an example is ISS, the most complex international scientific and engineering project in history and the largest structure humans have ever put into space. Remember Gen 11:4- They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” Interesting in Hebrew “city” means excitement and or anguish, as in terror and this comes from a root word meaning to rouse oneself, awake, awaken, incite. “Tower” in Hebrew means an elevated stage and comes from a root word…to grow, become great or important, promote, make powerful, praise, magnify, to do great things. This should not be a surprise! Read Isaiah 14:12-14 which lines up with what the Word says regarding lucifer.

    Many of these things line up with the study the Lord gave me regarding “Gravity” and also the message “The Alignment”. Read John 17, Matthew 6:9-15. Luke 10:2. Interesting in Luke 10 Jesus sent the 70 out in groups of two and now the ISS crew is sent up in two’s. As stated in Eph. 1:10 there is a “summing up” in Christ, both things in the heavens and things on the earth. So, let us keep in mind to keep our eyes on Jesus, the living and abiding Word of God and not on end times, and not on circumstances and not on other people…but on Jesus, for He is the Author and Finisher of our faith, salvation and deliverance! Then the end times, circumstances and other folks can be looked at correctly, or as the Word states in 2 Tim 2:15-Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. The son’s of God are to be LED by the Spirit of God and there continues to be a way that SEEMS right unto man but that way continues to be the way of death. Prov. 14:12 & 19:21.

    Speaking of one of the meanings of “city” above meant “terror” and to “incite”, read this latest article re. isis, which only has one extra letter in it’s name from the the ISS, the letter “i” and again looking at Is 14 noticing all the stated “i will’s”!  

    Article: ISIS horror grows
