As a child, we looked at the stars, and I still do sometimes. I know people know that the stars are very interesting. As a teenager, I found out who the greatest star is, but I had to become a child first. I am the author of several books now. They are very exciting and true. My goal is to help children and common people to understand the true gospel. My prayer is to reach a lost world. The books are simple and easy-to-read, and some are about my life. It is truly a joy. Enjoy!

This story is about like any other that I have ever written. It is to help the children of the world. Children must remember the Bible verses in Ephesians 6:1-3. It says "Children obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor thy father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise.) that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth."
This is a story about stars. As we know, most children have a cartoon star or TV stars or a teacher may be a star for a child. Teachers also give children stars for doing good or for getting a certain grade. My goal is for children and adults alike to learn about the greatest star I ever met.
As we know, the Bible talks a lot about the stars. As we learn in Genesis 1:16, God created the moon, the stars, and the sun. I remember as a child of about eight or ten years old, that I would look up into the sky at night for the two dippers that are made out of the stars.
In Psalms 147:4 we learn that God knows the number of the stars and also that they are named. My guess is that parents believe that their greatest earthly stars are their children. As a child I thought my parents were the greatest stars that I ever knew, until I met the greatest Star the world has ever known.
Many people try to dismiss children but Jesus loves them greatly. As we see He says for "of such is the kingdom of heaven." We see this in Luke 18:15-18. We read in verse 18 that no one can enter the Kingdom of God, unless that person comes as a little child.
As we study about the greatest Star, we read some of the greatest verses about Him are found on Psalms 8:1-9. It shows us that God loves man and that He visits him. In verse 9 it tells us, how excellent and perfect is our Lords name.
In Psalms 148 we learn the sun, moon, and stars praise him. We know that in Genesis 22:17 that God promised Abraham that his seed would be multiplied as the stars of heaven. We know that God has done that because all we have to do is look at Israel and we see that his seed has multiplied.
Now we must glance Star ever known to man. In Revelation 1:11-20 we learn that the worn Alpha means first and the word Omega means last. In verse 13 we learn that the greatest Star is the Son of man and also how he is clothed. We learn in verse 20 that the seven stars are angels and the candle sticks are seven churches. Also, we learn that Christ has the keys of hell in death.
In Revelation chapter 2 and verse 1 we see that this Star of all stars, Jesus, walks in the midst of the seven candle sticks, which are the churches, and sees what is really going on. Jesus saw that one church had left their first love, which was him.
As we learn more and more about stars we find out in Psalms 148:3 that the stars praise Him and all the creatures praise God.
