The Celtic Cross & Being Ready for Yahshua's Return


"For as the lightning comes forth from the east, and is seen even to the west, 
so will be the coming of the Son of Man."  Matthew 24:27

Our ancestors planned their churches and cemeteries based on Matthew 24:27 above.  They always wanted to ensure they were ready for Yahweh's return.

In fact in all Christian cemeteries, people are buried with their feet pointed East so that they will be ready when Yahshua comes from the East - basically the dead will be facing towards Yahshua when he comes from the East. They wanted their loved ones to be ready since the dead in Christ will rise first.

"For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first." 1 Thes 4:14

Early Christian Churches were built so that the attendees came in the west door and then were seated facing a big window that faced East.  This is so that they would see Yahshua coming, if HE were to return during the church service.

"Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord." 1 Thes 4:17



Our ancestors put Celtic Crosses on almost every burial site to ensure their loved ones would have proper navigation when Yahshua returned.  They also put the cross on top of churches to also ensure proper navigation and to be able to tell the time of year.  A Celtic Cross placed towards the East, as shown above, tells you the time of year - when the sun is exactly in the middle it means the equinox is occurring.  When the sun is towards the left of the cross, it means it is summer time and towards the right would mean winter time.  The Celtic Cross was actually a navigation instrument that indicated cardinal directions plus the wheel in the middle actually made it a precise tool for measuring constellation alignments, equinoxes and various angles.  It is thought that the Celtic Cross was used to align the Great Pyramid of Giza to specific constellations.  


Jacob's staff was another instrument to measure alignments and angles such as constellations and equinoxes.  Their staffs and Celtic Cross allowed them to measure the heavens and know when planets and stars were going to be in alignment.


The Maji were very skilled at reading the constellations and the planet movements.  They tracked all the movements in the heavens since they knew the Mazzaroth was the Gospel in the Stars.  That is how they knew Yahshua, their King, was going to be born - they saw various conjunctions occur in the sign of Leo that represented a new King would be born in the line of Judah.  They also knew that the signs would occur when Leo was in the East (see more about Leo in the East in the camp arrangement).

"Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." Matthew 2:1-2

Our ancestors were so good at measuring angles they became know as the Anglo-Saxons. The word anglo and angle originates from the word angel.  You see both the Angels and the Anglo-Saxons were experts at measuring the angles of the heavens.

I'm also certain that our biblical ancestors, including the Hebrews, wrote predominantly 'left to right' due to their understanding of Yahshua coming from the East.  When you face towards Yahweh in the North, and write from 'left to right', you are writing going towards the East, in the direction that Yahshua will be coming from.  In fact the Egyptians did write in different directions but they always wrote religious documents from 'left to right'.  

Today we do have astronomers that can measure the angles and planet movements in the heavens just like they did back in the biblical times, however, they now have computers and better telescopes that just makes their job easier.  We now have the time and course of each planet and many of the stars  in computer programs so we can anticipate equinoxes, eclipses and conjunctions years in advance.  Lets not forget though, that people like the Mayans, did calculate their calendar accurately all the way to the start of the age of Aquarius on December 21, 2012 without the advantage of a computer - it is really just about being good at math and having a tool like the Celtic Cross.

Heavens, Archangels, Angles & Domain Study


Overview

At this time in history there appears to be much confusion regarding the universe that the Elohiym created, therefore, I created this word study on the heavens, archangels, and dominion hoping to clear up this situation. I originally was making it for my own personal use; however I decided to share it.  I’m fortunate to have an 1890 dictionary with Christian definitions of words.  

“This is the history of the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that Yahweh God made earth and the heavens.” WEB Genesis 2:4

The heavens and archangel responsibilities seem to have been simplified and have lost their meanings over time.  The church is probably to blame for spiritualizing everything.  Plus we also have people that say they are Christians, yet do not know the earth is round.

The ancient Hebrews did not have the words solar system and galaxy in there vocabulary, the word they used was the Heavens.   Yahweh has a host of angels that work for him in the heavens. 

I will be starting this word study with very basic information and definitions and then some very interesting information – so pleases bear with me.


Earth

The 1890 dictionary definition of the word earth:[1]
  • 1)      The globe or planet with we inhabit; the world, in distinction from the sun, moon, or stars. Also, this world as the dwelling place of mortals, in distinction from the dwelling place of spirits.
  • 2)      The solid materials which make up the globe, in distinction from air or water; the dry land.

The word earth is translated from the Hebrew word 'erets' which means:
  • 1)      common, country, earth, field, ground, land, nations, way,
  • 2)      probably meaning to be firm; the earth (at large, or partitively a land) -- X common, country,  earth, field, ground, land, X natins, way, + wilderness, world.

Below is the first use of the word earth in our bibles:
“God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.” ESV Genesis 1:10

The Sun

The Strong’s definition of the word sun which is translated from the Hebrew word ‘shemesh’ number 8121[2]:
  • 1)      east sideward, sun rising, westward, window
  • 2)      From an unused root meaning to be brilliant; the sun; by implication, the east; figuratively, a ray, i.e. (arch.) A notched battlement -- + east side(-ward), sun ((rising)), + west(-ward), window.

The Greek word for sun is ‘hélios’ number 2246[3].

The 1890 dictionary definition of the word sun[4]:
  • 1)      The luminous orb, the light of which constitutes day, and it’s absence night; the central body round which the earth and planets revolve, by which they are held in their orbits, and from which they receive light and heat.
  • 2)      Any heavenly body which forms the center of a system of orbs.
  • 3)      The direct light or warmth of the sun; sunshine.
  • 4)      That which resembles the sun; as in splendor or importance; any source of light, warmth, or animation. i.e. For the Lord God a sun and shield. Ps 84:11


“They gathered it morning by morning, everyone according to his eating. When the sun [shemesh  8121] grew hot, it melted.” WEB Exodus 16:21[5]

Solar

The 1890 dictionary definition of the word solar[6]:
  • 1)      Of or pertaining to the sun; proceeding from the sun; as the solar system; solar lights; solar rays; solar influence.
  • 2)      Measured by the progress or revolution of the sun in the ecliptic; as the solar year.

The word solar is not in our bible but the solar effects are reflected.  Below is an example of the solar rays causing shadows.

“I am going to make the sun’s shadow that goes down on Ahaz’s stairway go back by 10 steps.” So the sun’s shadow went back the 10 steps it had descended.” HSBC Isaiah 38:8

Ecliptic

The 1890 dictionary definition of the word ecliptic:[7]
  • 1)      A great circle the celestial sphere, making an angle with the equinoctial.  It is the apparent path of the sun or the real path of the earth as seen from the sun.
  • 2)      A great circle drawn on a terrestrial globe, making an angle with the equator; used for illustrati[8]ng and solving astronomical problems.

Reflected below is an Stellaruim picture showing the ecliptic path, in yellow, that from the earth it appears the sun is traveling on, however, it is the earth that is really traveling around the sun.


Galaxy

The 1890 dictionary of the word galaxy:[9]
  • 1)      The Milky Way; that luminous tract, or belt, which is seen at night stretching across the heavens, and which is composed of innumerable stars, so distant and blended as to be distinguishable only with a telescope.

The word galaxy is not in our bible; however, I’m positive that our Milky Way Galaxy and the other galaxies are part of the Heavens.  In fact it could be the whirling that Ezekiel was talking about in chapter 10.

“Then I looked, and see, in the expanse that was over the head of the cherubim there appeared above them as it were a sapphire{or, lapis lazuli} stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne. He spoke to the man clothed in linen, and said, Go in between the whirling [wheels], even under the cherub, and fill both your hands with coals of fire from between the cherubim, and scatter them over the city. He went in as I watched.”  KJV Ezekiel 10:1-2

Our Milky Way Galaxy is thought to be part of a bigger galactic super cluster Laniakea. Our Milky Way Galaxy is the red dot shown.




Solar System

The 1890 dictionary definition of the words ‘solar system’[10]:
  • 1)      The sun with a group of celestial bodies which, held by it attraction, revolve round it.  The system comprises the major planets, with their satellites; the minor planets, or asteroids, and the comets; also, the meteoroids, the matter that furnishes zodiacal light, and the rings of Saturn.
  • 2)      The major planets are; the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Asteroids, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

The word solar system is not reflected in our bibles; however, it is part of the heavens and will be discussed further in on this page.


The Earth is the round sphere, third from the sun in the middle.

Heavens

The 1890 dictionary definition of heaven[11]:
  • 1)      The expanse surrounding the earth.   Especially, that which seems to be over the earth like a great arch or dome; the firmament; the sky; the place where the sun, moon, and stars appear; - often used in a plural sense.
  • 2)      The dwelling place of the Deity; the abode of bliss; the place or state of the blessed after death.

The Strong’s definition of the word heaven is the Hebrew word ‘shamayim’ number 8064[12]:
  • 1)      air, astrologer, heavens
  • 2)      Dual of an unused singular shameh {shaw-meh'}; from an unused root meaning to be lofty; the sky (as aloft; the dual perhaps alluding to the visible arch in which the clouds move, as well as to the higher ether where the celestial bodies revolve) -- air, X astrologer, heaven(-s).

Therefore, in the original Hebrew the word shameh is normally in the plural form shamayim.  The ‘im’ at the end of a Hebrew word means more than one.

Our bible is in agreement with these definitions since it reflects examples of the word ‘shamehim’ being translated into English with the words either sky or heaven, plus the bible does explain that the luminaries, the sun and stars, were placed in the expanse of the heavens:

“The angel of Yahweh called to Abraham a second time out of the sky [shamayim 8064][13], and said, "I have sworn by myself, says Yahweh, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son, that in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens [shamayim 8064] [14], and as the sand which is on the seashore. WEB Genesis 22:15-17

And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, Until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stayed in the midst of heaven [shamayim 8064] [15], and hasted not to go down about a whole day. ASV Joshua 10:13

Our bible confirms that there are multiple heavens and different levels in the heavens:

These are the generations of the heavens [shamayim 8064]  and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens [shamayim 8064] [16]. ESV Genesis 2:4

Behold, the heaven [shamayim 8064] and the heaven [shameh 8064] of heavens [shamayim 8064] is the Lord's thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.[17] KJV Deuteronomy 10:14

“You are the Lord, you alone. You have made heaven [shamayim 8064] , the heaven [shameh 8064] of heavens [shamayim 8064] , with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships you.[18] ESV Nehemiah 9:6

Our bible reflects that the heavens will be rolled back like a scroll:

“And all the host of heaven [shamayim 8064] shall be dissolved, and the heavens [shamayim 8064] shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.” KJV Isaiah 34:4

The Book of Enoch also explains that the sun and the stars are in heaven:

“In like manner twelve doors Uriel showed me, open in the circumference of the sun's chariot in the heaven, through which the rays of the sun break forth: and from them is warmth diffused over the earth, when they are opened at their appointed seasons.” Enoch 75:4-5[19]

“And I saw chariots in the heaven, running in the world, above those portals in which revolve the stars that never set. And one is larger than all the rest, and it is that that makes its course through the entire world.” Enoch 75:8-9[20]

The Book of Enoch also reflects there are multiple heavens:

“And he took up his parable and said -Enoch a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by God, saw the vision of the Holy One in the heavens, which the angels showed me, and from them I heard everything, and from them I understood as I saw, but not for this generation, but for a remote one which is for to come.” Enoch 1:2-3[21]

The book of Baruch 3 explains there are five heavens.[22]

In the New Testament, the word heaven is translated to the Greek word ‘ouranos’ number 3772:
  • 1)      air, heaven, sky.
  • 2)      The sky; by extension, heaven (as the abode of God); by implication, happiness, power, eternity; specially, the Gospel (Christianity) -- air, heaven(-ly), sky.

The word ‘ouranos’ is translated as both sky and heaven throughout the New Testament.  Here are some examples:


“From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven [ouranos 3772 ][23]is at hand.” ESV Matthew 4:17
“I saw a new heaven [ouranon 3772 ] and a new earth: for the first heaven [ouranos 3772 ] and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more.[24]” WEB Revelation 21:1

But in those days, after that oppression, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will be falling from the sky [ouranou 3772 ], and the powers that are in the heavens [ouranos 3772 ]  will be shaken.” WEB Mark 13:24-25


 This is only part of the universe that Yahweh created that is in the Heavens.


Firmament or Expanse

The dictionary definition of the word firmament[25]:
  • 1)      Fixed foundation; established basis
  • 2)      The region of air; the sky or heavens; In scripture, the word denotes an expanse, a wide extent; the great arch or expanse over our heads. In which are placed the atmosphere and the clouds, and in which the stars appear to be placed, and are really seen.
  • 3)      The orb of the stars; the most remote of the celestial spheres.

The Strong’s dictionary reflects that the words firmament and expanse are translated from the Hebrew word ‘raqia’ number 7549[26] and the definition is:
  • 1)      Firmament
  • 2)      Properly, an expanse, i.e. The firmament or (apparently) visible arch of the sky -- firmament.

The 1890 dictionary definition of the word arch:[27]
  • 1)      Chief; eminent; greatest, principal (Archbishop, Archangel)
  • 2)      To form an arch; to curve

The 1890 dictionary definition of the word arc:[28]
  • 1)      A portion of a curved line; as the arc of a circle or an eclipse.
  • 2)      A curvature in the shape of a circular arc or an arch.

Therefore, in the verse below Yahweh tells us that the two great luminaries, the sun and stars, were placed in the expanse of the heavens which is beyond our protective barrier called the atmosphere. Precisely though we have a mesosphere that protects us from meteors and other objects. The mesosphere is approximately where space begins and our atmosphere ends. From the ground, it would appear to look curved since we cannot see the whole circle at once.  It would be considered our chief or arch protector. These two great luminaries were put in our solar system which is also called a heaven:


“And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. And God set them in the expanse [raqia  7549] of the heavens [shamayim 8064] to give light on the earth.”[29] ESV Genesis 1:16-17

The Sky and Clouds

The dictionary definition of the word sky[30]:
  • 1)      A cloud.
  • 2)      Hence, a shadow
  • 3)      The apparent arch or vault of heaven, which in a clear day is of a blue color; the heavens; the firmament: sometimes in plural.
  • 4)      The weather; the climate.

The Strong’s dictionary shows the words sky or clouds is translated from the Hebrew word ‘shachaq’ number 7834:[31]
  • 1)      cloud, small dust, heaven, sky
  • 2)      A powder (as beaten small): by analogy, a thin vapor; by extension, the  -- cloud, small dust, heaven, sky.

In this verse the Hebrew word ‘shachaq’ is in the plural form ‘shachaqim’ and was translated into the English word ‘skies’:

“Your loving kindness, Yahweh, is in the heavens [shamayim 8064]. Your faithfulness reaches to the skies [shachaqim 7834].”  WEB Psalms 36:5

The English word cloud is also translated from the Hebrew word ‘ab’ number 5645:
  • 1)      clay, thick cloud, thick, thicket
  • 2)      Properly, an envelope, i.e. Darkness (or density, 2 Chron. 4:17); specifically, a (scud) cloud; also a copse -- clay, (thick) cloud, X thick, thicket.

There are a couple of verses in the bible that refer to the ‘vault of heaven’.  The dictionary definition of vault is:
  • 1)      An arched structure of masonry, forming a ceiling or canopy.
  • 2)      The canopy of heaven; the sky.

The Strong’s definition of the word vault shows that it is translated from the word ‘chug’ number 2329:[32]  ‘Chug’ is defined as: circle, circuit, or compass. Here are examples:

“In the assembly of the Most High, she will open her mouth, and in the presence of his heavenly forces, she will boast: “I came forth from the mouth of the Most High, and I covered the earth like a mist. I lived in the heights, and my throne was in a pillar of cloud. I alone encircled the vault of heaven and walked in the depths of abysses.”  Sirach 24:2-4

Here are four different translation of the same verse with the word ‘chug’ in it:

“But you say, What does God know? Can he judge through the deep darkness? Thick clouds veil him, so that he does not see, and he walks on the vault of heaven [shamayim 8064].” ESV Job 22:13-14

“A cloud is his hiding-place, and he shall not be seen; and he passes through the circle of heaven [shamayim 8064].” Septuagint Job 22:14 

“The clouds are his covert, and he doth not consider our things, and he walketh about the poles of heaven [shamayim 8064].” DR Job 22:14

“Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven [shamayim 8064].” KJV Job 22:14

Below are my two guesses as to what the vault or circuit of heaven is, however I do believe our mesosphere is probably the ‘vault of heaven’.


Translation Summary:

  • ·         Hebrew Shamayim 8064:  Is normally translated as Heavens, Heaven, or Sky depending on the translator.  It is in the Hebrew text 410 times. 
  • ·         Hebrew Shachaq 7834:  Is normally translated as sky or clouds. It is in the Hebrew text 21 times.
  • ·         Hebrew Ab 5654: Is normally translated as cloud or ticket.
  • ·         Greek Ouranos 3772: Is normally translated as Heaven, Heavens or sky.

Angels and Angles

The word ‘archangel’ only appears a couple of times in our bibles.  In Strong’s archangel is translated from the Greek word ‘archaggelos’ number 743, which means a ruler of angels or a superior angel.[33]  Strong’s reflects that archangel is derived from two words ‘archó’ and ‘aggelos’.  The Greek word ‘archo’ number means to rule or reign. The Greek word ‘aggelos’ number 32 means angel or messenger.[34] The word ‘aggelos’ is derived from ‘agelé’ number 34, which means a flock or heard.[35] The word ‘agelé’ is derived from ‘agó’ number 71 which means to lead or bring forth. In the Greek it should mean a group of rulers that lead.

The Hebrew word for angel is ‘malak’ number 4397.[1]  Malak means to dispatch as a deputy; a messenger; specifically, of Yahweh, i.e. An angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher) -- ambassador, angel, king, messenger.



The 1890 dictionary definition of archangel is:[36]
1)      a chief angel; one high in the celestial hierarchy.

The 1890 dictionary definition of angel is:
1)      a messenger
2)      a spiritual, celestial being, superior to man in power and intelligence.

This dictionary states the Anglo-Saxon word for angel was angel or engel and it was influenced by angele and angle.  The French word is ange.  Both the Anglo-Saxon word and the French were influenced by the Latin word angelus.[37]

The word angle in Latin was angulus meaning angle or corner. The Anglo-Saxon word for angle was angel. In geometry it means: “1) The figure made by two lines that meet.2) The difference of the direction of the two lines”. “A spherical angle is one made by the meeting of two arcs of great circles which mutually cut one another on the surface of a globe or sphere”. [38]  Therefore an angle can be an instrument for measuring.

An old Anglo-Saxon vocabulary book shows they called a hook an ‘angel’.[1]


On this page they show there is a race called ‘angels’ and there were ‘angelics’.



The Book of Enoch describes the archangels as ‘Holy Angles who watch’ and states these are their responsibilities:

“And these are the names of the holy angels who watch. Uriel, one of the holy angels, who is over the world and over Tartarus. Raphael, one of the holy angels, who is over the spirits of men. Raguel, one of the holy angels who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries. Michael, one of the holy angels, to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind and over chaos. Saraqael, one of the holy angels, who is set over the spirits, who sin in the spirit. Gabriel, one of the holy angels, who is over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim. Remiel, one of the holy angels, whom God set over those who rise.” Enoch chapter 20[39]

Below are bible verses that mention the archangels:

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first” 1 Thessalonians 4:15

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first” Jude 1:9

“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” Daniel 12:1

The seven spirits, in the verse below, are the seven archangels mentioned in the Book of Enoch:

“John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne.” Revelation 1:4

According to the book of Baruch 3, the archangel Michael holds the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven and that he presents the merits of man to Yahweh.[40]

Therefore, the Archangels are the Angels that are rulers, they watch us and they are messangers. The job of any ruler is to measure their subjects to determine if they are law abiding.  In fact the 12” ruler is a tool to measure, just like a ruler measures its subjects.  So to rule is to measure!  It is the rule of law!  

The Archangels measure our obedience to the laws of Moses and report back to Yahweh!

Anglo, Angle and Angel

The 1890 dictionary states the word Angles came from the Latin word Angli.  It states they were “an ancient Low German tribe, that settled in Britain, which came to be called Engla-land (Angle-land or England).  The Angles probably came from the district of Angeln (now with the limits of Schleswig), and the country now Lower Hanover, etc.”[41] 

The modern word for Angeln is Angles.  The earliest spelling was Anglii.  Angles is used as the root of French (and Anglo-Norman) words Angleterre (Angleland, i.e. England) and anglais (English). Bede told Pope Gregory in Latin “Non Angli, sed angeli” ("Not Angles, but angels") [42]
So it was Bede that stated the people of Britain are the angels and they have been the English ever since.[43]

The 1890 dictionary definition of the word Anglo:[44]
  • 1)      In Latin, it is Anglus
  • 2)      Anglo-American, Of or pertaining to the Englishmen in America, or the United States.
  • 3)      Anglo-Danish, Of or pertaining to the ‘English and Danes, or the Danes who settled in England.
  • 4)      Anglo-Norman, Of or pertaining to the English and Normans, or the Normans whoe conquered England.

The 1890 dictionary definition of Anglo-Saxondom:[45]
  • 1)     The Anglo-Saxon domain (i.e. great Britain and the United States, etc.); the Anglo-Saxon race.


Therefore, the word English probably is derived from angel!  
Both angle and angel is derivired from probably the same word.

Adam’s Domain verses the Archangels

Yahweh gave Adam and HIS descendant’s domain over things that move on this earth plus the birds that fly in the sky:

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air [shamayim 8064, heaven or sky][46], and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” KJV Genesis 1:28

Notice that he did not give Adam the domain over the heavens. Yahweh has domain over the heavens and the Archangels work for HIM in the heavens. I believe he probably gave the Archangels domain over the heavens.

“But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have lifted my hand to the Lord, God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth” Genesis 14:22


 Adam’s domain is things that move on Earth plus the birds in the sky.

Conclusion

Yahweh and the Elohiym created everything in our universe.  Plus Yahweh established law and order for us to follow.  He created countless stars in the heavens and gave them all names.  He has an army of angels in the heavens to watch over us. 


Let’s Praise Yahweh for all the marvels of the heavens and the domain he gave us. 

He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names. Psalms 147:4

You are Yahweh, even you alone; you have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all things that are thereon, the seas and all that is in them, and you preserve them all; and the host of heaven worships you. Nehemiah 9:6
