Will the SUN Ever Burn Out?

Will the SUN burn out?

The Bible says repeatedly in Revelation that the Sun which is the central enegy that powers our entire solar system will one day burn out. At that time it’s service will no longer be needed.

There are scientific evidences to back this up: There is the expert knowledge, that the sun will eventually burn out. But this is not going to happen for a long, long time. Since its “birth” 4.6 billion years ago, the sun has used up about half of its hydrogen fuel. But it still has enough hydrogen to last about another 5 billion years, experts say.

All Stars are born, and they all die. The Sun (which is functionally a star) is not an exception though its lifespan is approximately 9billion years. When it dies, the earth and the other planets it supply will go down with it, assuming they are still around by then.

Why is this important?

As humans, we are limited when it comes to understanding time and space. The concept is mindboggling by the way. But the Bible tells us both the earth and the sun will one day go down. Not the same time, the earth is going down much earlier. But the sun eventually dies, Jesus who is the Sun of the Morning will take over, powering the entire universe.

Revelation 22:5 NLT

“And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.”

Ps. The word “lamp” in Bible time can be described as “electricity” in today’s world.

Pps. Revelation 22 is the last chapter of the Holy Bible.
