Psalm 19: The Christian Universe
"For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him"
God created and sent the Word of God to do the Work of Creation. The Word of God made Himself known to humans as "the LORD God" (LORD is the English rendering of the Sacred Name of which we actually have only the four Hebrew letters, all consonants, "YHVH" - that later humans have made many incorrect guesses as to how it was pronounced i.e. see Who Created Jehovah?).
As plainly stated in and by the Word of God (see What Does Word of God Mean To You?), the Word of God / LORD God was born as Jesus of Nazareth.
"1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:1-3 KJV)
As a shepherd tending his flocks at night, at a time before man-made lighting made the full magnificence of the stars invisible to hundreds of millions of people (astronomers call it "light pollution"), David viewed the heavens as any wise man would - "The heavens declare the glory of God." David knew exactly Who he was talking about when he said it (see The Messianic Psalms, David's Prayer and The Righteous Don't Fear The Reaper).
"19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.
Fact Finder: What was done when the Messiah returned to heaven after His Sacrifice?
This Day In History, December 10
1508: Pope Julius II, Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, Louis XII of France and Ferdinand II of Aragon formed the League of Cambrai to attack Venice (see Emperors and Popes and The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation).
1520: Martin Luther publicly burned Pope Leo X's papal edict, Exsurge Domine, that ordered him to recant his "protestant heresies." The accusation against Luther was fundamentally incorrect; Luther rebelled against the immoral behavior of the Papacy at the time, but he maintained nearly all of the Church of Rome's pagan doctrines, as do the "Protestant" churches to this day (e.g. see Why Observe The True Sabbath? and Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?). That's why the LORD refers to the "Protestant" churches as "harlots" too: "17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (Revelation 17:4-5 KJV). The Church of Rome is the "mother" of all of those harlots, while Luther was the "father" of many of them.

1865: German-born Leopold I, the first king of the Belgians and a highly influential force in European diplomacy, died. He was known as the "uncle of Europe" - among his many international royal relatives was his niece Queen Victoria of Britain.

1901: The first transatlantic wireless signal was received at St. John's Newfoundland. Guglielmo Marconi flew a box kite trailing copper wire to a telephone picked up clicking sounds transmitted from 2,000 miles / 3,200 kilometers away in Cornwall, England. Today, the hill from which the kite was flown is called Signal Hill.
1913: The "Mona Lisa" painting was recovered in Florence after having been stolen from the Louvre two years earlier.
