When A Man From Space Visited Earth

Proof exists that earth has been visited by Beings from outer space. Absolute, irrefutable proof is available that this earth has been the scene of titanic struggles between powerful forces who reside in space. Read, in this article, of that proof, and of the secret so well kept that God the Father never revealed it to His own Son in advance!

Once this good green earth was absolutely teeming with billions upon billions of strange creatures that are now restricted to solid stone monuments or skeletal representations and paintings in museums of natural history. Towering lizards reared up on their hind legs with giant jaws as big as a grand piano. Some had huge “armor-plated” tails capable of swinging to and fro with incredible brute power.

The visible world was like a subtropical swamp with luxuriant verdant foliage stretching over the continents like a carpet. Then, without warning, all this tranquility was rudely interrupted! Suddenly there was an ominous rumbling deep in the bowels of the earth. A huge, great, titanic, gargantuan earthquake rapidly began to rend the earth’s surface, then black volcanic ash spewed into the air. The sun still shone bright red in the sky, but the atmosphere was rapidly being blocked by this smog-like dark ash. Everywhere dinosaur-like creatures were crazed with fear – grunting and squealing with terrible fright as billions of gallons of water began to gush out of the depths of the earth.

Soon came a gigantic tidal wave – a muddy wall of water over 120 feet tall, replete with the twisted bodies of millions of animal-like creatures whirling crazily with multiple tons of ferns, plants, tree trunks, and every type of green vegetable matter.

Each time these ravaging tidal waves raced back and forth across the continents, the less there was to impede them. Finally, even the tallest mountains were sunk beneath the water: “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep” (Gen. 1:2).

And then that great Being sped through several galaxies in an instant and came to the corner of the Milky Way (He may have been seated in a strange-appearing apparatus that moved in defiance of the known laws of aerodynamics.) He searched out a tiny little speck lost in the shadow of one bright orange star. Not a sign of life was visible! What He saw was an earth covered with a huge, thick Venusian fogbank of clouds – completely and totally shutting out the light of the sun, moon and stars.

This great Visitor from the further reaches of outer space commanded the light to shine out of total, thick, black darkness. Then, no more than 24 hours later, the earth once again began to shudder and shake. Huge volcanoes began to spew forth from beneath the seabed. Hot lava and magma began to erupt from gigantic cracks and cleavages in the underwater crust of the earth. Molten rock began to flow above the surface of the sea. Large continents appeared in the midst of the oceans.

Perhaps in a matter of hours, like giant submarines surfacing with the water cascading of into the sea – North and South America, Asia, Africa and Europe were simultaneously glistening with waterfalls, inland seas, basins and giant riverbeds.

Another command and trees, plants, lichens, moss, and all types of ferns began to dot the earth. Then the last vestige of a thin cloud cover was suddenly stripped away and the precious life-giving light of the sun shone through unimpeded. The earth was once again a beautiful, shimmering jewel in a minute corner of the universe.

Another command and many types of animals suddenly appeared on the earth. Some were hanging upside down from tree branches; others stood around with horns sticking out of the most unlikely places, seeming to impede their vision; still others had little creatures tucked away in funny-looking pouches. But our all-powerful Visitor had saved the best for last.

The great spirit Being knew that the scene before Him was incomplete. Something vital was missing: there was no living creature to rule over and govern the earth and its newfound flora and fauna.

Our Visitor then kneeled down in the dust of the earth – perhaps by a streambed packed with red clay on both sides – and began to fashion and mold the supreme master- piece of His creation. Soon the Master Sculptor was ready for the finishing touches. He breathed into this new creature’s nostrils the breath of life. The first man had been created!

But who was this great Architect from the further reaches of outer space? Who hung the earth on nothing? Who fixed the bounds of the ocean so that the waves of the sea suddenly stop at the beaches? Who made the Milky Way? Who made this man?

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God (the Father), and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” (John 1:1-3, 14).

These first few verses in the beginning chapter of John tell us plainly who it was that got down into the dust of this earth and formed the first man. It was the very same Personality in the God Family who became Jesus Christ of Nazareth a few thousand years later.

“And the Word was made flesh.” Our Creator actually became a tiny germ of life in the womb of the virgin Mary. When the Holy Spirit, by a divine miracle from God the Father, united with a female ovum in the body of Mary, another tiny human life was on its way to parturition.

Jesus Christ’s human fetal development was no different than yours. The fetus went through all the various stages that comparative embryologists seems to think prove evolution – but instead show the functional similarities of the same great Designer. Nine months after conception, a little baby boy was born in Bethlehem just a few miles outside of Jerusalem.

God became a human being! The God-life of another dimension, the Traveler in outer space, the great Being who made this vast universe, who made Adam and Eve, who ate with Abraham, who parted the Red Sea, who had visited this earth many times for millennia. Had been changed into a tiny spark of life: a baby in His mother’s arms, as apparently helpless as any other newborn infant. At day one, He knew no more than you did.

What a risky, humbling experience for One who had inhabited eternity with all the glory of being the great God! But Jesus Christ of Nazareth was more than willing to take this great risk for the sake of the human beings He had created.

As He grew up, Joseph and Mary began to make Jesus aware of another dimension not shared with a single other human being. “I’m not your real father,” Joseph would tell Him. “Your Father is God in heaven, you were divinely conceived.”

As Jesus Christ developed into a young teenager, He began to become conscious of another world. He pictured in His mind’s eye whole thought processes privy to a spirit dimension He had enjoyed with the Father throughout eternity. Years later, He prayed: “And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began” (John 17:5). He once “shocked the socks off,” (or should we say sandals) the Pharisees by saying: “Before Abraham was, I Am” (John 8:58).

You’ve seen your share of flash-backs in the movies. How many times Jesus Christ’s mind flashed back to the countless instances when He had previously zipped down to this earth, we have no way of knowing. He must have remembered the expression on Adam’s face when he first laid his eyes on Eve; the curious experience of hearing Adam name the various animals; His many conversations with Abraham, wrestling around in the dirt with Jacob; “arguing” with Moses about his vocal abilities, and letting him be the only human being ever to get a glimpse of God in His glorified form, talking to the young child Samuel in his bedroom; speaking to sorely discouraged Elijah in a still small voice, etc., etc.

Jesus must have been almost like a man who was recovering from amnesia. An eternity of experiences returned to His mind as He grew into manhood and prepared for His three- and one-half-years’ ministry. Jesus Christ was much more attuned to that extra dimension of the spiritual world that we are. He was instantly aware of both sides of it.

He met both sides of the spirit world just before His ministry began. Physically, Jesus must have been very near the point of death. He was terribly dehydrated from fasting 40 days and 40 nights without a drop of water or a morsel of food passing His lips. He was readying Himself spiritually for terrific mental combat – a titanic struggle with Satan the devil. The stakes were infinite!

Satan tempted Jesus to misuse His office to procure food at the devil’s behest. He tried to puncture Jesus’ ego (there was none – it was nonexistent) and tempted Him to misuse God’s promise of supernatural protection. Satan tried to get him to grab world rulership the quick, easy way.

But though physically weak and emaciated, Jesus, by quoting scriptures in the Word of God, countered every temptation this evil creature was throwing at him. He had to call on the other side of the spiritual dimension in order to completely resist this evil, powerful, magnetic influence that was trying to tug away at His mind, at His appetite, at any possible little ego or vanity.

After that exhausting conflict with the devil, “angels came and ministered unto him” (Matt. 4: 11). So Jesus Christ of Nazareth experienced both sides of a completely different dimension that humanity (limited to our five sense, apart from revealed knowledge) can know nothing of. But Jesus had instant access to help from the positive side of this other world.

Humanly, Simon Peter wanted to protect Jesus from execution in the worst way. Impetuously, he went so far as to hack off the ear of the High Priest’s servant. But Jesus asked him: “Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions (a whole army) of angels” (Matt. 26:53)?

Prior to that time, Jesus had been becoming increasingly aware of the immediacy of His last great trial. Earlier He had told His disciples: “Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men” (Luke 9:44). Jesus really wanted these men – His closest friends – to deeply understand what He was about to go through. However, though they had continually seen and heard clear and irrefutable evidence of the extra spiritual dimension, they simply didn’t share in it to anywhere near the same degree that Jesus did. “But they (the disciples) understood not this saying, and it was hidden from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying” (v. 45).

Just hours prior to Judas’ betrayal, Jesus went to Gethsemane to pray. Now this great Being, who had often visited this earth from outer space, who had actually been born later of a virgin, was faced with fulfilling, in just a few short hours, the most important purpose He came to accomplish as a human being – having all the sins of mankind heaped upon His shoulders.

Words could not describe the terrible agony of anticipation! Jesus desperately needed, first of all, help from His Heavenly Father, secondly the comfort and loyalty of His very closest friends. The account is well worth quoting:” Then comes Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy (troubled). Then he said to them, my soul is very sorrowful, even to death, remain here, and watch with me. And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed,” My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt” (Matt. 26:36-39).

Jesus possessed the same physical flesh, sinew, bone and tissue that we do. He felt the same physical pulls and fleshly appetites tugging at Him. It wasn’t easy to live day by day the sinless life that He did! “Therefore, he had to be made like his brethren in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make expiation of the sins of the people. For because he himself has suffered and been tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted” (Heb. 2:17-18).

Jesus was not somehow exempt from the severest of temptations. Here He was face to face with the greatest trial of His life – and with precious little help from His uncomprehending disciples. After about one hour of earnest prayer, He returned and found them sleeping (Matt. 26:40). Jesus told them: “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak” (v. 41). Here Jesus was referring every bit as much to His flesh as He was to that of His disciples.

“He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. And he came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy. And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words” (vs. 42-44). 

Luke’s companion account adds something else that occurred while Jesus was yet praying: “And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him” (Luke 22:43). Though His disciples were rapidly waning in their resolve (eventually they all forsook Him and fled), Jesus was still, at this point, asking for and receiving help from His Heavenly Father.

After Jesus had prayed earnestly and intensely for several hours, and had received added strength as a result of angelic help, He told His disciples: “Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me” (Matt. 26:46).

What followed shouldn’t happen to any human being, but it was the only way our rotten, putrid, filthy sins could disappear forever-- --never to be remembered again! God reveals, in His perfect plan, that only by the shedding of blood is there remission of sins.!

To begin with, Jesus was betrayed by a kiss from one of His closest friends. Then, in the hours that followed, He was beaten intermittently by a cat-o’-nine-tails. He had to suffer merciless beatings which tore into His flesh, disfiguring Him causing Him to bleed from dozens of open cuts and gashes!

 He was also beaten and whipped with a “scourge” which was a whip of many leather thongs with bits of lead and metal tied in the ends of them.

Finally, dragging and gasping for breath, with open raw wounds livid with caked blood, perhaps an eye ripped open, a part of his lip laid back, and great rents in His scalp, Jesus was led to His own execution like a dirty criminal. His body dripping with blood, falling and stumbling, Jesus was made to carry His own stake and He fell under the weight of it. People along His path were jeering and spitting on Him – throwing rocks and sticks and dirt in the air. 

Then He screamed with pain, when He felt huge spikes being pounded mercilessly through the flesh, pinning His hands and feet to the wood. He felt Himself being hauled roughly up as His tormentors reared that great stake upright and jammed it into the ground, causing Him to scream again with unbearable pain! On the stake, every breath of air brought Him sharp spasms of still more pain, without any relief whatever. He had to feel His own body weight ripping and tearing at the flesh where the nails had been driven through. Here Jesus was left to die a slow, wretched hideous, merciless death - almost as if someone was gradually pulling a great dark veil over His eyes as His bodily strength ebbed away.

He was thinking the thoughts of the 22nd and 23rd Psalms. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.” There had never been a single time in Jesus’ life when He had been unable to call on God the Father and actually feel the strength and vitality of the response. Always the courage, the faith and the help came.

Then Jesus was shocked by something He never remotely expected! He saw, as it were, the back of God walking away from Him, out into the nothingness of eternity! He knew it and He felt it. His Father had left Him absolutely alone! And He didn’t understand it – then.

Jesus cried with a loud voice . . ..” My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me” (Matt 27:46)? Jesus never said a word He didn’t mean! Jesus didn’t cheat with words; He meant it with all of His being. There was no more help! Jesus was utterly by Himself!

Now do you understand why the Bible says: “When he had by himself purged our sins, (He) sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high” (Heb. 1:3).  Jesus had to endure those final moments alone – with horrible agony of spirit, mind and body! But He had the spiritual reserve and the character to do it!

Finally, Jesus felt a sharp metal spear jamming into His side, cutting the tissue and the organs, severing blood vessels and rupturing His bladder, - and perhaps even ripping open His stomach. THEN NOTHING, HE WAS DEAD!

Three days and three nights later Jesus stepped triumphantly through a solid rock wall, having been transformed instantaneously back into spirit life to become the gloried “Son of God sitting at the right hand of the Father in heaven with all the power in the universe in His capable hands. Power not only to rule this earth, but to save humankind from itself. Once again, He was able to step out into space itself.

Shortly after His resurrection to that humanly indescribable dimension of spirit life, Jesus sped through the universe all the way to the third heaven – His first space flight in over 30 years. Suddenly, He appeared on the gorgeous translucent sea of glass. Directly in front of Him quite a distance away, was the Person and throne of the greatest Being in all the universe - the Ancient of Days, God the Father! Seated on each side were twelve elders, the wisdom and antiquity obvious in their faces. “A beautiful multi-colored rainbow shimmered over the scene in sunbeam hues. Lightning flashed and thunder clapped. Millions of angels were in attendance – anxiously awaiting the great event to follow. It was a fabulous sight to behold! You might envision the scene that followed this way

A bedraggled figure, livid with visible wounds, began to walk down the line between those 24 elders, He came closer and closer to a great blazing light shining just like the sun in its full strength and sat down at the right hand of God the Father. Then with all the angels applauding, smiling and bowing down, God the Father reached to get a crown and placed it on Jesus’ head, proclaiming Him King of universe and King of this earth. (Remember, Jesus told His disciples some 40 days later: “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”)

We can imagine the angels were saying something like this: “Worthy is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain, to receive all power and wealth, wisdom and might, honor and glory and praise. Praise and honor, glory and might, to him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb for ever and ever” (Rev. 5:12-13)!

Then Jesus may well have asked His Father: “Why didn’t you tell me I was going to have to do it alone?” “I couldn’t Son,” came the reply. “I couldn’t let you know in advance. It would have been too cruel a blow. You probably couldn’t have made it if you ever had to expect there would be an instance in your whole life when you can’t reach out and take me by the hand. But you did it, and you can’t know how pleased and proud I am.”

Jesus probably turned to Him and said: “How great was your plan and how thankful I am.”

There was emotion between those two-great super divine, holy Beings that is far beyond our imaginations. We can’t envision a God that we can worship and an older Brother that we can adore – before whom we can come on our knees and say “forgive me”; who gave me the capacity to laugh and love and to experience life – without emotion that is boundlessly greater than my own.

What a fantastic Savior we have! He says you too can have it all – incredible, unimaginable spirit life for all eternity! You too can reach out and step into a much greater dimension of life. “At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Ps. 16:11).

And you don’t have to do it alone. He made that first great big step for you! He said: “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).

Jesus Christ is the firstborn of many brethren, the Captain of our salvation – the One who has gone on before. While He was a human being – the Son of man – He was only a prayer away, a thought away, just a moment from stepping into another dimension and actually seeing angelic beings, dealing with them, eating their food, letting them care of Him.

There is spirit life both on this earth and out in the universe. It is life of a completely different dimension. It doesn’t depend on beets, carrots, celery and water, the flesh of animals, or grains of wheat. It is life that is self-perpetuating, self-existence. “For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself’ (John 5:26).

One of the members of the God family died so that you too could have self-perpetuating, self-existent life! “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Jesus Christ of Nazareth gave His true followers this fantastic promise: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. And I give unto them eternal life: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand” (John 10:27-28).

The vast majority of the population of this world has never heard these promises of an extra dimension of eternal spirit life. And most of the few who have, never remotely understood them. Our Western Christianity has long preached of a foggily understood retirement plan in heaven. But that’s not what God promises.

There is a Work on this earth that actually understands the words of eternal life. God is currently interfering and intervening in the affairs of men through a small cadre of imperfect human beings. They are carrying the words of God as a warning and a witness to the teeming millions who are making a trip through the blackness of space of this jewel-like spaceship we call planet earth.

One of the members of the very God Family – Jesus Christ – is going to revisit this earth before it would otherwise blast itself out of existence. He is, however laying the groundwork for His coming space trip through His Church now!

When Jesus Christ of Nazareth does come again, He will not come alone. A vast army of angelic beings will make the trip with Him. Jesus will not come again as the humble carpenter of Nazareth, but next time as a powerful war-making and conquering King taking His rightful office on this earth.  John foresaw it all in vision: “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war” (Rev. 19:11). And the apostle Paul spoke of this same event: “And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Thess. 1:7-8).

But before this mind-bogging event occurs, Jesus is giving the inhabitants of this earth ample warning through His word and promising those who take an active part in its rulership and eternal life in the New World to come.

If you repent of your sins, asking God for total forgiveness, and you endure to the end (either of your life or to Christ’s coming – whichever comes first) – then you, too, will have your “hour in the sun” – your moment on center stage. Someday Jesus will call your name and all heads will turn, and you will take that same walk that He did. Then He will pick up your crown and say: “This one has your name on it.” Angels will be singing and applauding at the moment when you are crowned in another life of a completely different dimension.

You are a spark of life in the midst of the blackness of the universe. God is offering you the greatest bargain that could ever come to a human being. He’s offering you eternal life! All you have to do is really repent and really believe that He is the Son of God. Adore Jesus Christ! Grab Him by the feet spiritually and say, “I really love you! Thank you so much for what you did!”

Then look at yourself as a hunk of garbage not even fit to crawl around through the cracks in the floor in His marvelous sight, and then just be good! Be merciful, loving, kind and forgiving.

Neil Armstrong, when he walked out on the surface of the moon, said that he was taking a great step for mankind. Jesus took a bigger step when he went right through a solid rock tomb.

You, too, can step out of your grave in an instant of time when the heavens are rent at the return of Jesus Christ. You can take your walk into eternity. Are you interested? It could be the greatest step of your life.
