If God did create life on other planets, were they made in God’s image? Man was made to be very special. Genesis 1: 27, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” So man was made in the very likeness of God.
When man fell into sin in the garden, God didn’t give up on them and go to another planet. He revealed his plan of salvation. God told Adam and Eve that they would have to leave the garden. Adam would have to labor to bring forth food from the ground. Eve would bring forth children with painful labor. They would live for a long time before they would die, but die they would. Adam and Eve rejoiced at this, because they had hope.
He showed them how to kill animals to make clothes of skins, all because of their sin, which required blood sacrifice. He told Eve she would bare a son who would crush the serpent’s head though the serpent would bruise His heel, and Eve rejoiced.
Let’s take a step back here. In Genesis 1:1 it says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. We know that whatever God creates is perfect, but the next verse Genesis 1:2, says, “ And the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”
What happened? In the Strong’s Index of Biblical Words, the word number, 1961 for “was” in Genesis 1:2 says,“was” can be translated “to come about, to come to pass, to become, to occur, to be brought about, etc.” So the earth became without form and void, but what brought this change about?
Isaiah14:12-15 says, “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! ‘But you said in your heart I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’ Nevertheless you will be thrust down to Sheol, to the recesses of the pit.”
Many theologians believe that the fall of satan happened between verse 1 and 2 of Genesis. This is called the Gap Theory. Satan was cast out of heaven. The earth became without form and void and the Spirit of God was brooding over the face of the waters. There is no telling how long the time period could have been between verse 1 and 2, or whether or not there was a race of people before Adam that was corrupted by satan, and God had to destroy them. Dinosaurs could have fit into this period, and this would explain the “old earth”. Not all theologians agree, but the theory certainly has its merits.
Since his fall, satan’s goal has been to corrupt the seed of the woman so she could not bring forth the man that would crush his head; that man is the Lord Jesus Christ. All of this has been happening on earth.
Back to other planets, Zachariah 12:1 says, “Thus declares the LORD who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.” This verse goes from the heavens to the earth, to the spirit of man, nowhere else.
The Bible declares that Jesus is the only begotten son of God, (John 3:16). There is no other, not anywhere in the universe. Yet there are demons, who are disembodied spirits, they seek a body to inhabit. They are different from fallen angels. Fallen angels fell with satan. The Blood of Jesus covers us and protects us from these. According to the Bible, in the last days there will be a great deception prior to the coming of the Lord.
The Bible also says in Matthew 5:5, “Blessed are the meek (gentle) for they shall inherit the earth. It doesn’t mention other planets. Psalm 24:1 says, “ The earth is the Lord’s and all it contains, the world, and those who dwell in it.” It doesn’t mention distant planets.
UFO’s and aliens may present themselves as life from other planets. They may declare they have come to help us, or that they have planted us here in the first place. They may even come with films of Jesus and say He is one of them. Don’t fall for it. Satan is a liar and the father of lies.
All UFO’S and aliens are from another dimension, not another planet. They are fallen beings, demons or angels. Whether they put on a movie in the sky or spin a great story that conflicts with the Word of God, DON’T FALL FOR IT.
Jesus is the ONLY SON OF GOD. The WORD of God is true, and you must be born again to enter heaven. The Bible does not speak anywhere of life on other planets no matter how much a rational mind may try to convince you it is there. God is true, and let every man be a liar.
