Because today’s writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote her by using her full name. In fact, her full name isn’t given. At the end of the letter, the newspaper says: “Jennie is a long-time resident of Fredericktown, an eclectic gatherer of stories, information, and experiences to share with whoever would like to read them.” So we’ll call her Jennie. Excerpts from her letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
There’s an overwhelming amount of amazing information in the book of Job. The reason I am zoning in on this particular area is because I just learned the meaning of another jewel that proves God is from the beginning, Creation of everything and prove [sic] to be true by modern studies of Celestial Science.
Jennie’s letter is short, but we’re including it in our collection because her argument is very original. She says:
As time passes “new” information is revealed. Not because it is really new, but because we become able to comprehend more, due to scientific study, and new technology, etc. The verse I am referring to occurs in Job 38:31, part of Gods [sic] answer to Job concerning the vast realm that exists between Himself and mankind.
Then she quotes Job 38:31:
Canst thou bind The cluster of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
We checked. It’s different in the King James version, which says:
Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
We don’t know what bible translation, if any, uses the expression “cluster of Pleiades.” Let’s get on with Jennie’s letter:
I never knew what God was talking about in this verse of scripture, or the enormity of His revelation. Just think on this; who, but God, from the beginning could have known, that this particular cluster of stars, the Pleiades, are gravitationally bound together? Could anybody except God make such a thing happen?
The bible says the Pleiades are “gravitationally bound together”? Well, okay. Let’s read on:
The constellation of Orion, the hunter, wears a band (belt). That’s cool, but what I found out just blew me out of the water.
Ooooooooh! What did Jennie find out? She tells us:
The stars that make up Orion’s band are very far away from each other and all of them various sizes.
So what? Jennie explains:
We see them in order around his waist, fitting perfectly into the constellation the same as they did the day they were made.
Ooooooooh! That’s amazing! Here’s the end of her letter:
We see them with our eyes, because that is what God intended. This is just another affirmation for us from our God and creator. Amen.
Well, it was original.
