"And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be."
Here are some deep thoughts: Is the universe bigger then what we can see? Are we short-sighted? Yes! Our eyes and telescopes are too weak to see how big the universe is. Do you believe God created what we call the universe? Or do you think these galaxies just exploded into existence from nothing? Or is the universe much smaller than we know and God much greater than we understand? Are there only three dimensions or do realms exist beyond human comprehension?
Could our lack of vision of all creation, only allow us to see a small part of whats "out there?" These questions and many more go through the minds of some in this day that science fails to explain how vast the known universe is.
So many look at themselves as the center of the universe, truly an example of how empty humans are when looking into the vastness of space, --- demonstrating the feeble human condition on the intellectual level!
So many are willing to believe and even conclude that there IS alien life "out there" not acknowledging the distances you must travel that must defy all understanding of time and space to reach them or for them to reach us, --- otherwise it would take thousands of years!
Back to reality from the "world" of science fiction, to date there is still no proof AT ALL of life "out there" yet in spite of that science fiction movies abound to fill that gap in our hearts and minds. The fact is without God, you must make a giant leap of faith ---Science fiction is putting faith where there is no hope. But dont tell the "UFO-ologists" that! (Those are the real kooks chasing Unidentified Flying Objects for a reason for life)
If there is any truth to UFOs this verse gives you the source, Satan!
"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:"
This shouldnt surprise you if you read your Bible what better way to deceive the masses!!!
2 Thessalonians 2:9
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,"
Todays science fiction is more a false religion and fantasy revealing a truth of the human condition, --- without God in the picture of the universe, visible and invisible the universe is indeed a very, very large empty place! The day has come reader, I have to tell you, the force is NOT with you! I realize I just dashed to bits another childhood dream but better learning it here then learning the truth before God!
"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,"
How desperately we seek to find something to hope in, something to have faith in, instead of seeking the face of God who made the universe!
The size of the universe should boggle the mind of any rationale human being. From the smallest particles to the biggest objects visible in the cosmos. On Earth, from the simplest life form, to the human being. Frankly, I am aghast that any human can really believe that it is all "by chance." Or other ridiculous notions that we were "planted" here by some alien race! Wheres the proof? It doesnt exist except in vain and foolish minds, who seek to deny the existence of God. We have indeed become fools if we deny there was even a creator "God."
<<To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, A Psalm of David.>> The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
Are we foolish enough to blindly leap in faith that there is some benevolent alien being out there watching over Earth affairs thats keeping us from destroying it?
Do we grasp and live by the concept that the universe is just part of some greater "circle of life" expanding and contracting over and over --- and has always been in existence?
Dr. Stan Swinney, (a real) retired NASA scientist (designer of the space
shuttle cockpit, the laser technology in guided smart bombs, and many other things),
describes this amazing number as follows:
"If a man could count 20 numbers per second, it would take 100 million billion years to count the known stars."
"He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite."
Even the atheist and humanist cannot fully grasp the size of the universe and neither can this writer. So how can we be so arrogant to deny the possibility that there is a God who created everything? ---This is the same argument used by those who put stock in the alien theories! Couldnt it be that all we see was created to point to a God of infinite wisdom and power?! Can we honestly say we know enough to deny the existence of God? --- How much knowledge is enough? Our science only can grasp the most basic items of the world, yet we pretend we have the answers to life?! Science changes almost daily on topics like evolution, even those who believe evolution cannot agree on all pertinent aspects! How absurd to demand people believe evolution is true then!
II Peter 3: 3-13
"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness."
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:"
Heres a thought for these science fiction followers to chew on. Put verses like the ones above into the mix and imagine what could, make the "elements shall melt with fervent heat," "And the stars shall fall from heaven." Could it be what we are witnessing in the "cosmos" is our future destruction? Could the phenomena of "Black Holes" be the hand of God holding back the destruction foretold in scriptures? Or some other thing in space? Perhaps. The world seems to love a good horror movie and one day its going to get horror in full color as it happens to them!
Consider this: Is it easier to believe that there is a God out there who created all things OR that everything is "by chance?" What are you going to put your faith in? Now using logic, if you believe there is a God out there didnt He go to a lot of trouble to create everything? Is it not sound reasoning to think that He may have provided some form of communication with us? --- This isnt too far fetched compared to those supposed "alien" contacts our scientists search for!!! Test what the Bible teaches, search its truth for yourself and see what a great God has done! When you do, you find Him to be true! Many great men and women have made this discovery when they sought to challenge the scriptures but instead of revealing a lie, they found a Creator and Savior! Dont let your finite mind deceive you into thinking there is no God, pray that your eyes would be opened to the truth today!
"Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;"
--- He made the universe, is there any task too small or too great for Him? My "universe" got a whole lot bigger and brighter the day Jesus Christ became my Savior, my Lord and my God! I am empty no more!
