Man is trying to find other forms of life in the universe and that’s what space exploration is all about. We want to find some sort of life on Mars. We have searched for new forms of life for 6000 yrs. all over our world and now we are searching outer space. It’s all about life and the quest for life. We spend vast amounts of time and money, trying to find ways of extending life. Perversely, we spend much more time and money inventing weapons of mass destruction to kill the whole world.
Sin has made our world a mess. The earth is like a drunken man with fire
all around him, rising like mushroom clouds. He’s staggering and losing his
balance and coughing from the deadly fumes and ready to fall over dead. We’ve
made such a mess of things with our sinful wicked ways. Certainly you don’t
believe for a moment that God would allow us to populate other planets and destroy
them the same wicked way. This earth is a test for man. We have a chance to
conquer death and have eternal life and go to heaven God’s way. Not in bodies
of flesh and bone that were created by God for this earth, but a new
incorruptible, eternal body that can live in outer space eternally. We can eat
from the tree of life again that we lost because of sin in
We do not have to fly to God in heaven to obtain eternal life, God came down to man because He loved us. The Lord Jesus Christ came down to earth to solve man’s s greatest problem, sin and the consequence of sin, which is death. And that’s what Easter is all about – “The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:23). We can’t get to heaven and eternal life by eating from the same tree of knowledge that gave us death to start with. Jesus Christ on the tree cross is set before us as the choice between life, eternal life, and death, eternal death in the lake of fire. Our test here on earth has eternal consequences. Will you believe the Bible, God’s wisdom, or continue on believing man’s wisdom?
Yes, the stars are within our reach, but we can only reach them God’s way. Christ promises us the stars if we get saved – “And I will give him the morning star” – (Rev.2:22). Our eternal bodies will shine like a star – “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever” – (Dan.12:3). Again – “Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of my father…” – (Mt.13:43).
We can’t get to heaven by our works of building space ships, we get there by faith – “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast” – (Eph.2:8,9). We cannot get to heaven with our pride in our works; we get to heaven by humbling ourselves at the cross of Christ and receiving forgiveness of sins and getting saved by our Savior and becoming a born again new creature in Christ.
Do you want to get to heaven that is populated with millions of God’s living creatures, His angels and all the saints of God? God has told us from the beginning that there is life in outer space, eternal life, and that we can have this life only though His beloved Son – “I am the resurrection , and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” – (Jn.11:25). Receive God’s Son as Savior as He came down to earth from heaven to show us the way to heaven – “I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me” – (Jn.14:6). Christ came down from another world – “Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world” – (Jn.8:23).
Don’t die in your pride. Repent of your sins and believe in your heart
on Jesus Christ by faith and you will be saved from hell and your sins and
receive eternal life and have the right to travel all over this universe. “And this is the record,
that God hath given to us eternal
life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that
hath not the Son of God hath not
life” – (I Jn.5:11,12). Don’t go to hell with your
worldly wisdom that God has made foolish through Christ. You’ll not get to
heaven by the wings of
Be ready to fly away in the rapture.
