The Northern Lights

A missionary pastor in Alaska had some very interesting information about the Aurora Borealis- the Great Northern Lights. We will pass this information on to the Bible believer for thoughtful consideration in view of the fact that the universe is called a vesture or a garment in Hebrews 1:11-12 and this vesture or outer garment is likened to a tabernacle (Exod. 25-31) with "curtains." Here's the material directly from Brother Greg Pierce in Homer, Alaska:

"We only see the Northern Lights from September to October, probably about the time of the year that Christ was born (the Feast of Tabernacles). They appear almost every night- especially right after sundown; that is if the moon doesn't wash them out by trying to outshine the 'glory' of the Northern Lights.

The Lights hang like huge curtains in the eastern night sky and wave in the heavens back and forth. Sometimes they'll swing out over our house as if some cosmic wind was blowing them. The usual color of the lights is a glowing white; but they'll change abruptly to green, blood red, blue, and golden. (All within thirty minutes observation.) These things we have witnessed many times with great wonder (2 Peter 1:16).

Friends who have worked the pipeline further north swear that the Northern Lights make musical tones and notes as they wave back and forth.

The natives believe that if you 'whistle' the lights will come to you. And many whole native villages reported seeing a city in the lights; complete with streets and people walking down them."

The pastor writes, "But everyone knows that these natives are half crazy!...Aren't they??"
