Does God Want Us In Space

I keep seeing a lot on the news about problems with the space shuttles. Do you think that maybe God does not want us in space? Are there any references to this in scripture?

Of course God wants us in space! He's even coming here "personally" to get us and take us there.

Joh 14:2,3 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also.

Yes ,,., if you google "may 21 2011" you will find a most extraordinary site, with most extraordinary claims!

What are we doing in space is answered in Jeremiah 31:37:

"Thus saith the LORD, If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel(the Jewish people) for all that they have done, saith the LORD."

This verse above explains the Humble telescope and at least one facet of our space program. Mankind is looking for the foundation of the earth. Satan is doing his work through mankind and that work is attempting to get God to reject his people the Jews!!! This of course is an impossible task but Satan does not realize this.

I think it makes perfect sence, The first Isrealie died there. The end of the world is comming may 21 2011 (search engine it). Gene Rodenbarries Idea of a perfect Utopia has become just a sad thought. We are to Violent, can you just Imagine a Galactic war Caused by Humans, And so has God, since he Created Time, he Lives outside of that Framework, Just seeing in todays News The FAA has Granted Re-entry Access to Space X, the Galatic Virgin Comapany. Meanwhile sit back and enjoy thease last few monthes of Human Existance.

God created all of the universe. The Earth is for us to live on and the plants and animals are for us to cultivate and eat. Is it not further possible the world into which He intended us to go forth and multiply was never intended to consist of only this one sphere among the potential millions of habitable planets?

God gave Adam and Eve paradise. Through their disobedience, sin entered the world. Through arrogance, humans built the Tower of Babel. Through arrogance some believe humans are solely responsible for global warming. Through humanity's greed, our government purchases space equipment from the lowest bidder. When the Millenial Kingdom is established, I believe there will be no desire for space travel since all we'll ever want or need will be here on Earth. Our own arrogance and greed produce casualties.

I imagine a few people asked the same question when people began to build cars and planes. I fail to see how exploring space and finding evidence of life on another planet is some attempt to disprove God. Assuming as I do that God is the God of the universe, Im thinking its highly unlikely that life exists only here. pretty darn wasteful i'd think

I have often thought ha ha God does not want us up there. Look at all the problems that we are having. So I will go and see what I may find out in the word of God. By God's grace. Okey, all scriptures that I came across God is wanting us to know that He is the creator. And this includes the moon, stars, and jupitar. He is in control. Has anyone on God's green earth ever asked God, "Do you want us up there"? If not, It makes me tremble. And if He was asked, Were we really listening?

Unlike some people on these blogs, I would not presume to claim to know what God thinks beyond what He has said in the Bible.

people are funny. many believe in a rapture, saying they will fly into the clouds and beyond before Jesus returns to signal the first resurrection. We don't have wings. Are you going to defy gravity. Neil armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon July 20th, 1969. they have now sent probes to mars, jupiter, uranus, pluto and beyond. what is everyone afraid of. the probes will show we are not alone in the universe and prove many here have believed lies of men instead of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

I think the answer can be found in our motivation to go into space. The space program seem to carry tones of the "Tower of Babel". Science seems to be on a mission to be equal to, superior to, or disprove God altogether, which is what the current obsession is with spending billions to find evidence of a germ on Mars, killing astronauts in the process. And what's with the uptick in shuttle launches lately, despite another shuttle loss?

God gave us a mind to think and explore. As humans, we are naturally curious about the world around us. If we weren't, Columbus wouldn't have set sail, Louis and Clark wouldn't have trekked the United States, so and so forth. I sit outside, looking at the stars and wonder what else could be out there. We've explored most of the earth, why not space?
---Katie on 8/14/07

No, not specifically, but there are a few stories about men who tried and did go beyond their limitations,(the tower of Babel being one) and God had to put them in their proper place. Maybe......
---tony on 8/14/07

All humans including yourself do many things that are body were not made for. No wings to fly, wheels on our feet to go over ten mph, propellers on our legs to travel in water. We are not animals, God gave us a mind to think, reason, invent, etc. Everyday we do dangerous things. Blaming God for accidents or geological events is just superstition.

There are no references directly in Scripture to space travel. However, Daniel 12:4 says "...the time of the end, many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase". Undoubtedly space travel would be included in this Scripture.
---Helen_5378 on 8/14/07

You are dealing with questions far beyond the scope of biblical authors so you will find no guidance in scripture.

Man has adapted, he built boats to sail the seas. Craft to go under the seas. Air craft to flight through the sky and spacecraft to begin to explore space. We will be limited by our short life time to be able to accomplish significant space exploration because distances are so far and our travel speeds are too slow when compared to that of light.

Candice >>> with that reasoning we should have never invented airplanes or fly on a plane.

I think that space exploration just makes us more in awe of God's creation. Of course it is risky . . . world exploration was too. Christopher Columbus lived in a day when it was thought the world was flat. He could have sailed right off the edge. LOL.
---Gena on 8/14/07

God made Earth our home until the ressurection when we're into the new Paradise Earth.It is risky going past the atmosphere we're not equiped for. I think if God truly wanted us to travel from Earth ot Space he'd equip us with bodies made for that, not aircrafts which are distructable.
