"I believe that this universe is a beautiful work of art,"  "Like all
works of art, it must have an artist." -  Christopher Nicholas
Sarantakos






Pss.19

[1] The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth
his handywork.

"If you've ever wondered how big the universe is, you're not alone.
Astronomers have long pondered this, too,

and they've had a hard time figuring it out. Now an estimate has been
made, and its a whopper.

The universe is at least 156 billion light-years wide." -  Robert Roy

Will it be possible for people to explore the wonders of the heavens
beyond our Milky Way galaxy to the outer limits of this universe?  I
have to admit it I like some of the ideas presented in the Startrek
tv series and movies... like the idea of boldly going
where no one has gone before...to explore strange new worlds...etc.

But presently, there are no starships available with warp
capability.
And even if there were, with mankind's limited life span one would not
be able to go to explore the universe even in several life spans.


It's more likely God will provided another way to get there. After all
it says in the Bible
that God created the heavens, the earth and the stars.  And if there
is a gift of eternal life or
immortality given to His people then with God's help anything that's
good is possible.


So,  It is unlikely that God would keep His people confined to one
little corner of the universe.


Some Biblical References :


Gen.1

[1] In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
[16] And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.



Pss.8


[1] O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who
hast set thy glory above the heavens.
[[3] When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon
and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
[4] What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man,
that thou visitest him?
[5] For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast
crowned him with glory and honour.
[6] Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
thou hast put all things under his feet:
[9] O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!



Pss.19

[1] The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth
his handywork.

knowledge.
[3] There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
[4] Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to
the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
[5] Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth
as a strong man to run a race.
[6] His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit
unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

mercy endureth for ever.

ever.

for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
[2] The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the
outcasts of Israel.
[3] He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
[4] He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their
names.

infinite.

ground.

[8] Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the
shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night:
that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the
face of the earth: The LORD is his name:


John.14

[2] In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I

receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God
shall
wipe away all tears from their eyes.

[1] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and
the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
[2] And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God
out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
[3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the
tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they
shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their
God.
[4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there
shall
be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be
any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
[5] And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things
new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and
faithful.
[6] And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the
beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the
fountain of the water of life freely.
[7] He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his
God, and he shall be my son...

Rev.22

[1] And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal,
proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
[2] In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the
river,
was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and
yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for
the healing of the nations.
[3] And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of
the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
[4] And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their
foreheads.
[5] And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle,
neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and
they shall reign for ever and ever.

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life.

firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars
forever and ever




Eph.2
[8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: it is the gift of God:
[9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.

2Cor.4
[17] For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for
us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
[18] While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the
things
which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but
the things which are not seen are eternal.
Rom.2
[7] To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory
and honour and immortality, eternal life:
1Cor.15
[53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal
must put on immortality.
[54] So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and
this
mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.



Luke.1

[37] For with God nothing shall be impossible.




Is there good reason to have this hope?  Yes, much assurance can be
found in the Bible and Messianic Prophecies:

Messianic Prophecy: Review the incredible evidence that Jesus of
Nazareth is promised Messiah

Be assured that these prophecies were not conspired after-the-fact.

would fulfill every single one of them in this sample of just seven.

John.1

[1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
[2] The same was in the beginning with God.
[3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing
made that was made.
[4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
[5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended
it not.
[6] There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
[7] The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that
all men through him might believe.
[8] He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
[9] That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into
the world.
[10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world
knew him not.
[11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
[12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the
sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
[13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor
of the will of man, but of God.
[14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld
his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of
grace and truth.
[15] John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom
I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was
before me.
[16] And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
