One day sitting in a restaurant I was approach by one of the waitresses on duty. She eased her way into the chair next to me and somehow we started on the conversation of religion. The conversation almost immediately took a turn once she realized I was a firm advocate of God. So she asked, “Is there other intelligent life out there”? If not, she continues, It would be a total waste of space, what do you think?
It may appear to be a waste to us, I replied, but the bible teaches that all God ‘s creation has a purpose.
(Gen 1:14-15) And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
God created the other planets to help us divide the day from the night. They were also given to us for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years and to give light to the earth. God created the other planets to help us remember that he is the origin of all intelligent life. So you do believe there’s other life forms out there, she asked? Of course! I answered. Excited she says, I knew it! I then replied, yeah the bible refer to them as angels , but if you’re thinking of some green critter zooming through space in high-tech space craft, nah, that’s Hollywood.
You must remember, I continued to explain, that the earth is the object of focus. Although God created the other planets He placed strong emphasis on Earth. In the beginning God created the heaven, and the earth Genesis 1:1. The heaven consist of the other planets, stars and galaxies, however the earth is singled out for a special purpose above the rest of the planets. Again I believe there are other life forms which God created and those life forms are called angels which are made to minister to us that are heirs of salvation.
Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. 2Ki 6:17
Those horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha were angels sent to help the prophet of God. There are many accounts of angels appearing too many prophets. Abraham talked with them and Jacob wrestled with them. The Lord Jesus was made a little lower then the angels, thus, a little lower then angels you have humans. This would mean there is nothing in between us and them in creation. This leaves God, angels, and then humans, with that said, I can’t not accept any other intelligent life out there.
