The diameter of the Earth around the equator is 7,926.6 miles. The earth’s circumference is about 25,000 miles. It weighs an estimated 6,000 million, million, million tons.

And it just hangs there in mid air. Not held up by anything visible.

The earth is spinning 1,000 miles an hour on our axis. And as it does, it travels through space at 19 miles per second, 66,600 miles per hour, 1,000 times faster than what most of us travel driving down the freeway--most of you! At 66,600 miles per hour, the earth flies between 500 and 600 million miles every year.

The earth is huge but not in comparison to the Sun. The Sun’s diameter is 866,000 miles in diameter from one side to the other side, with a circumference of 2,720,106 miles--so big that 1,300,000 of our earths could fit inside.

But compared to Antares, another star, our sun is SMALL. 64 of our suns could fit inside of it. But Antares is a relatively small star in comparison to Hercules. 110 million Antares could fit inside the star Hercules.

Betelgeuse and other stars but the numbers get so big it begins to blow the mind. But all spoken into existence by THE WORD / LOGOS – Jesus Christ – God the Son.

Colossians 1:16-17 "For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist."

Consider for a moment: The Milky Way Galaxy that the earth finds itself in. The Milky Way Galaxy is 15,000 light-years wide at the center and about 100,000 light-years across. That means to travel the length of this Milky Way would take you 100,000 years traveling at 186,000 mps, which is the speed of light.

There are an estimated 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy. And the Milky Way Galaxy is just one of an estimated 100 billion galaxies that Jesus spoke into existence.

Paul tells us that it is all being held together by Jesus.

The Scientist call it "a mysterious atomic glue." The Bible calls the glue "Jesus"!
