If not Earth, where else? What else?

In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth! Period! No other planet was created that could carry life as far as we know from the word of God. Christ didn’t die for the sins of ‘life’ on other planets. God created the Earth to be inhabited and hath established it.

Isaiah 45:17-18 states that ‘I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things. For this said the Lord that created the heavens; God Himself that formed the Earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is no one else.’

We are alive through the creation of our bodies and the spirit of eternal life is in our being. The body breaks up on our earthly death but our spirit and soul continue to live. We cannot fully perceive the exact form the spirit & soul will take upon death and precisely where they will end up once it leaves our bodies but we have the assurance through the word of the living God.

Religions and man made theories have tried to give examples, metaphors, tales, and all sorts of fanciful notions, but they will never be anywhere close to the eternal truth. We in the body of Christ are confident of the assurances we have in the God inspired word that has kept our hope going from day to day. The world doesn’t want you to accept or believe that out in the vastness of space, there is only one planet called Earth that has life on it. They want you to ‘open up your thinking’ beyond God and ‘imagine’ that there could be other possibilities of extraterrestrial life and more planets that we haven’t discovered yet where life is ‘possibly’ teeming.

But we are confident that God created this Earth where we live as the planet that He envisioned for us and where He would demonstrate His love for us by saving us into Eternity by believing in His son. That’s why the Spirit led Isaiah to affirm that God Himself (and not any other being or entity) that formed the Earth and made it for habitation. If God wanted to also have life on other planets, then the scripture would have confirmed it.

If God wanted us to know the form of the spirit and soul, He would have given it a form of reality like our bodies and made it visible for us to touch and feel. But that’s what God purposed; that we have a body made up of flesh, organs, bones, blood and breath. And this body moves about and grows old. But He concealed the spirit and soul right inside.

Surgeons are known for their dexterous skills, knowledge and abilities to operate on the human body but no surgeon can ever ‘operate’ on the soul and spirit.

We have our existence on Earth and no where else. All that we think, say and do in our reality, it all happens within the confines of Earthly space. But our spiritual self that is saved belongs to the eternal realm where we are going go to eventually once He returns to take us.

We wake up every morning and we walk about and finish the day and it all takes places within this planet. Even if we set out to travel, it is still within Earth. Even the people on the International Space Station are still within Earth’s orbital vicinity. Science proposes a question which is most of the time resisting God’s word or powers and leaves you to think about other possibilities. Scientists then try to prove that question with all their painstaking efforts and explorations and then write out a theory which is then validated. Are we to understand that man with his theories can reveal to us the wisdom of God’s mind and His powers? Romans 1:19-21 clearly summarises how man, knowing very well that there is a Creator who has created everything want to nevertheless persist in discrediting Him altogether.

Man didn’t create the Earth or the Heaven~ Genesis chapter one doesn’t say ‘In the beginning’ science created the Heaven and Earth. Only after God created the Heaven and Earth, did science follow as men discovered the wonders of Creation. In fact, science that man has ‘discovered’ over the centuries was already encapsulated when God created and completed His works for Earth over those seven ordained days.

God purposed Creation for the body of Christ, which is for us. He knew earthly man would fall through temptation and disobedience. So, if you are reading this in any century after the 21st century and are wondering whether God was the ultimate playwright, orchestrator, conductor of it all and purposely created good and evil in that fruit, then you still have no other reference but you are on Earth until you are no more. And if you have lived long enough you do realise the realities of good and evil and its presence on Earth. Our current times might give you a reference of the general contortion and warping of what God had established from the beginning. The disgorging of our moral rectitudes is heading for a destructive course and you can only imagine what the future generations will have to live through if we are going to have a transformed world where all that is liberal and against God is perfectly acceptable.

Love is a fact of human nature. You might not have felt it nor are you capable of giving it but love exists! It exists in the mother’s arms and her care for her children, it exists in the eyes of the father who nurtures his children the right way. It exists between father and mother, and for all of this, it most certainly had a template. The original template was God and His son. The very idea of family was set in motion by God and His Son - Jesus Christ. Those who obsessively talk highly about the theory of evolution don’t talk much about the evolution of the family from apes. If we were to believe that we have come from our apes, then why do we live in families?

Sometimes, we wonder if John 3:16 is worded differently when we think that God ‘loved’ the world that He sent His son, and ask if it should be the other way where God so loved His son that He sent Him to die for us. But when John writes ‘God so loved the world’, it is implying the love God had for us all right from Adam until every person alive today and walking about on this planet in each continent and country, and for those who will continue to come until Christ has conquered death - the last enemy.

If God didn’t purpose us through Christ, then He wouldn’t have made this Earth. He would have been continuing to exist with Christ and the Holy Spirit into the forever.

The one question that most believers, unbelievers, atheists, agnostics, and other types of religious people lose their power to believe in God is when they seem not to find an answer for God’s existence. Man in his natural foolishness seems to think that he can give you answers for all the mysteries of life by scientific theories, reasoning, rationality and logic. But have you ever heard of scientists trying to prove the existence of God rather than His eternal existence? Wherever most attempts are made to prove God through theories, it mostly hypothesises from its opposite. All wisdom of man on Earth will only yield to foolishness with God. It is the invisibility of God through which He made all things through Christ that holds the knowledge and answers to the questions of life. (Romans 1:20)

We can try to speculate, assume, imagine, create and probe but we will never ever come close to the finding that answer of God’s origin. If one were to find that answer then he will not be alive. No man or woman can ever answer where everything that was created from came into existence but we in the body of Christ know that by Christ were all things created (Col 1:16)

Yet we struggle to accept and believe that our father in Heaven is the eternal God who made us all and us given us Earth as a home to live for a short time before we are called to Eternity. Our refusal to accept the truth from our Eternal Father hinders the complete understanding of God’s love and nature.

Romans 11:36 - For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

I Corinthians 8:6 - But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Ephesians 3:9 - And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ

Colossians 1:16,17 - 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:

And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Hebrews 3:4 - For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

Revelation 4:11 - Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
