High interest rates.Â A manufacturing slowdown or an asset bubble burst. Maybe a slide in real estate. And certainly credit crunches. What do all these have in common? They can all be causes for an economy sliding into recession. But what causes a moon recession. Because there ain’t none of that up there on the little night light.
But the moon recession is a real thing.
And the moon went into recession because it didn’t wanna break the law. Actually, the laws of physics. Apparently those laws “require the moon to recede from Earth.” In fact, a guy named Edmond Halley was probably the first guy to notice this. (You don’t remember him, because this was back in 1695.)
Apparently, as “tidal friction gradually slows Earth’s spin, the moon recedes (drifts away) from us. It’s just good physics laws. The old “if, then” scenario.
And there are people who spend time calculating things like this. They’ve calculated that even if the moon used to be nuzzled right up against Earth, it wouldn’t have taken billions of years for it to recede to where it is now.
So, the Earth and Moon might have drifted apart. But they’re still talking. So, don’t worry. And don’t forget thatÂ God actually said everyday life will continue, normally, for as long as the earth remains.
And the earth will remain until God gets rid of it.
And He WILL get rid of it one day.
But, thankfully for all those who hate Him, it wasn’t today. Because that means they have another chance to change their minds. And I hope they do. Because the consequences will be far more disastrous than some puny little pandemic with a survival rate over 99%.
Like the old hymn says…
Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
