We talk about life on other planets. Aliens. Are they out there? Are they looking for us? Are they friendly?
I happen to believe in other lifeforms on other planets, and it’s for one specific reason: God.
God is the creator of the universe and all that dwells. There is a very real chance that humans are not the only life He’s created. Heck, the earth itself has so much life.
But, what about souls? Spirits? Are humans the only people that posses the ability to be saved by Jesus?
This is all completely a theory…well, hypothesis on the subject. I have no scripture references for you. I only have who God is.
It finally got to me. The world finally got to me. The world has finally convinced me that this world is not getting any better. We continue to praise evil. Uplift it. Murder. Homosexuality. Theft. Scandal after scandal.
But more than that. I don’t care what jeans that celebrity wore today.
It’s like a combination of meaningless and horrible news is spewing out and I can’t escape.
One of the things about Cortana (on my Windows Phone as well as Windows 10 on PC and tablet), is that I can filter her to see the news I want to see. But, other than that, there’s misery everywhere I go.
The problem is social media. No, social media isn’t the bad guy. But, the way I use it. The way it’s being used. It’s not good. I have been in the process of unfollowing and unliking things. I am filtering my life and what I see.
But it’s not enough. The only way to truly escape is to completely shut yourself down from civilization. But, you can’t really do that, right?
I’ve done it!
Through years of intense research in a dark underground lab, as well as a library filled with ancient texts, I have studied and found the answer to achieving world peace. The love life I gave up. the meals not eaten. The blood, sweat, and tears. Talking to people who weren’t there for advice. Going insane. It was a hard journey but I made it. World peace.
I’m kidding. It only took me…uuuhhh…15 minutes to find out.
Isaiah 9:6-7 says “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.”
It was that easy. There are two points in there that I hope you noticed. The person talked about in that passage is Jesus, in case you didn’t know. He will be known as the Prince of Peace.
It also says that, there will be no end to His government or peace.
Those two points right there tell me how we could possibly achieve world peace. Through Jesus, and Jesus alone.
