Bates did a study on Orion concluding that every eye can see at the same time the second coming of Christ. Imagine being able to see into heaven! It is an interesting paper, I thought. It can be found at the Ellen White writings site under Pioneer writings. I am astounded at the study, dedication, and intelligence of the founders of our church compared to us of today!

Early Writings page 41
Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. The atmosphere parted and rolled back; then we could look up through the open space in Orion, whence came the voice of God.

The Holy City will come down through that open space. I saw that the powers of earth are now being shaken and that events come in order. War, and rumors of war, sword, famine, and pestilence are first to shake the powers of earth, then the voice of God will shake the sun, moon, and stars, and this earth also. I saw that the shaking of the powers in Europe is not, as some teach, the shaking of the powers of heaven, but it is the shaking of the angry nations.

{1846 JB, BP1 6.1}
in which there seems to be a perpetual uninterrupted day among numberless worlds, which no human art can ever discover. - Furgerson's Treatise on Astronomy, edition A. D. 1770.
{1846 JB, BP1 7.1}
Out of ninety-three, Orion is the most striking and splendid constellation in the Heavens; her centre is mid way between the poles of heaven and directly over the equator of the Earth, and is visible from all the habitable parts of the Globe.

BP1 page 8
Thus we see from all the testimony adduced, (and we could give much more were it necessary) that here is a most wonderful and inexplainable phenomena in the heavens: a gap in the sky, more than 11,314,000,000 miles in circumference. Says the celebrated HUYGENS, ?I never saw anything like it among the rest of the fixed stars - a free view into another region more enlightened.? I have had the pleasure (with others) during the past month, to see this wonder in the Heavens a number of evenings, through J. Delano, Jr?s. excellent Telescope.

Psa 64:5 ...an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?

Psa 7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. 15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. 16 His mischief (and his violent dealing) shall return upon his own head.

Psa 7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.

Don't they call that opening that is getting wider and wider "the black hole"?

In His Love, Mercy & Grace,

Well Daryl, it seems you appear to have hit the proverbial 'black hole' right on its head...

"The Orion Nebula Cluster might be home to a black hole more than 100 times the mass of the Sun, according to a recent simulation. At 1,300 light-years away, that would make it the closest known black hole to Earth."..

"One of the most recognized constellations is Orion, with its three prominent Belt stars, or three stars in a short straight row on the sky?s dome. This constellation can be seen at night at this time of year, ascending in the east, visible from all parts of the globe. Last week (November 1, 2012), an international team of astrophysicists announced the result of their work in computer modeling, which suggests that a famous nebula ? or cloud ? in Orion known as the Orion Nebula has a black hole at its heart, whose mass is some 200 times the mass of our sun.

If it exists, the black hole would reside somewhere between the four bright stars which mark the center of the Orion Nebula. These stars are known as the Trapezium....The Orion Nebula Cluster has long been known as peculiar. Its stars move at a rapid speed, as if the whole cluster were flying apart. If the cluster contained more high-mass stars, the speed of these stars would be easier to understand. But it doesn?t, and so astronomers have wondered why these stars move so rapidly.

An international team of astrophysicists ? led by Dr. Ladislav Subr of Charles University in Prague ? set up a computer model of the Orion Nebula Cluster. The model required a new method of dealing with the gas in this region of space and the way it is driven out from the young star cluster by the intensely radiating high-mass stars of the Trapezium. The model showed that, as the gas was being driven outwards, the cluster began to expand. That explained why most stars in the Orion Nebula Cluster move so rapidly. Many of the heavy stars were sling-shot out of the cluster, while some were driven into the center of the cluster and collided with the most massive star there. At some point, this massive star became unstable and imploded into a black hole, with a mass about 200 times larger than the sun.

These scientists were excited about this result. They said the finding had:

? dramatic implications for our understanding of how massive stars form and how such rich star clusters hatch from their gaseous cocoons. Having such a massive black hole at our doorstep would be a dramatic chance for intense studies of these enigmatic objects.

Amateur astronomers will be excited, too! Now, as you gaze at the Orion Nebula, you can imagine a black hole at its heart.

Bottom line: The Orion Nebula might have a black hole, according to an international team of astrophysicists. They made their announcement November 1, 2012 in the Astrophysical Journal."...

And they even have video on it..
