Question 291

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? I find Job 26:7 interesting, any thoughts sir?

Job 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.


Astronomers, in Mount Palamar California with their large 200 + inch telescopes HAVE OBSERVED billions of stars in all directions in the night time sky with the exception of the VOID OF STARS in the northern part.

Job 26:7 gets to be VERY INTRESTING when viewed in the context of Psalms 48:1, & 2 which states…

Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. (2) Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

Is Job 26:7 and Psalms 48:1, & 2 INDICATING that perhaps this is where heaven is?

Is this what the Astronomers are catching a glimpse of ???…MAYBE SO!!!

It is VERY POSSIBLE when compared with Isaiah 14:13 which says…

For thou 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.

The Word of God records in Isaiah Chp. 14 the Five I Wills of satan, in V13 we have satan’s VERY PRIDEFILLED and BOASTFUL statement “I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north”

I find it VERY CURIOUS that…

– Psalms 48:1, & 2 states that the CITY OF GOD (the New Jerusalem – Heaven, Revelation 21:2) IS LOCATED in the NORTH.

Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

– Job 26:7 states “He (God) stretcheth out the north over the empty place”

– Satan DECLARED that he was going to SIT ON THE MOUNT (God’s Throne) in the sides
of the north (heaven).

– The OBSERVABLE starry universe with all of its BILLIONS OF STARS is completely void in the northern part of the universe where Heaven the City of God is said to be located in!!!

In Conclusion:

I Believe that God meant what he says. The VERY RESPECTED and Great Bible Teacher Dr. Hank Lindstrom (b.1940 – d.2008) also BELIEVED that the void of stars in the northen part was in fact a VERY POSSIBLITY of heaven’s location.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
