Mars Is The New Earth

¨We shall all be changed¨, 1 Corinthians 15:51. This mystery will be fulfilled when we put on immortality, see 1 Corinthians 15:53. In Adam all die here on Earth, but in Christ shall all be made alive on Mars, see 1 Corinthians 15:22. If we shall judge angels and aliens, how much more shall we not judge this world, see 1 Corinthians 6:2 - 3?

Now Satan, ¨the prince of this world is judged¨, see John 16:11 and Matthew 4:10, and ¨cast out¨, John 12:31. Yeah, Satan is even ¨cast out into the earth¨, Revelation 12:9.

Since Earth is Satan's last frontier, and that he is "come down¨ to here ¨having great wrath¨, Revelation 12:12, we would all be lost if not Jesus had shown the way up to His throne on Mars, see Revelation 12:5, from where He calls out to us: ¨Come up hither!¨, Revelation 4:1.

Not all will be saved but ¨the one shall be taken, and the other left¨, see Matthew 24:40 - 41.

We know that Jesus is the truth and the life. Through Jesus all secrets are revealed and we also have everlasting life through Him, see Colossians 1:13, 2:3, and John 3:16. However, which is the most important thing Jesus mentions first in John 14:6? It is that He is the way. But the way to where? To paradise and to Mars of course! Jesus is namely the ¨firstborn among many brethren¨, Romans 8:29.

The way to Mars, that way up, is the smart way!

Jesus showed us the way up to Mars, but warned that it is a difficult way not many can take as he confirmed: ¨where I am, thither ye cannot come¨, John 7:34, because ¨narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life¨, Matthew 7:14. Nevertheless, He calls out to us from Mars with the encouraging words: ¨Come up hither!¨, Revelation 4:1, since He knows that Mars is the New Earth, and that this Old Earth ultimately is the ¨Lake of Fire¨, see Revelation 20:15 and 2 Peter 3:10.

Now this heaven and Earth shall pass away, but we will preserve the New Testament and the words of Jesus forever, and this is a sure promise, see Matthew 24:35, because Jesus promised it, see also Acts 2:39.

The reason for Jesus going down to Hell and thus visiting us was to ¨come to seek and to save that which was lost¨, Luke 19:10. Now Earth is a place of separation from God, and of unsatisfied desires. Our planet is also a place of suffering. This is why Jesus descended here into Hell to preach in the presence of ¨the rulers of the darkness of this world¨, Ephesians 6:12, in the place of ¨everlasting punishment¨, see Matthew 25:46, and ¨everlasting destruction¨, 2 Thessalonians 1:9, which is the fiery ¨furnace of fire¨, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, see Matthew 13:42.

Now Jesus, who is ¨the author and finisher of our faith¨, Hebrews 12:2, promised to those who overcome that they will sit with Him on His throne on Mars - the New Earth -, see Revelation 3:21.

¨Et vidi caelum novum at terram novam; primum enim caelum et prima terra abierunt, et mare iam non est¨, Revelation 21:1.

¨We Are More Than Conquerors¨ - Romans 8:37

When the astronomers came to see Jesus as a newborn baby in Bethlehem, they said they wanted to see the King of the Jews, for they had seen His star in the east, see Matthew 2:1 - 2. This star - the star of Jesus - is actually Mars. The New Testament ministers are like ¨a flame of fire¨, Hebrews 1:7, and ¨our God is a consuming fire¨, Hebrews 12:29, because in righteousness He makes war, see Revelation 19:11.

Jesus promises us to have power over the nations, Revelation 2:26, and to receive the ¨morning star¨ as a gift as a result of our faith, Revelation 2:28. Furthermore, in Revelation 4:1 we hear the command to ¨Come up hither!¨, and in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 we successfully travel to live and to spend eternity with our Lord Jesus on Mars. This is very good news indeed.

Jesus proclaimed that: ¨My kingdom is not of this world¨, John 18:36, and gave us also the promise to inherit the Martian kingdom, see Matthew 25:34, ¨as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him¨, 1 Corinthians 2:9.

Thanks to Mars the human race will survive. With the human race on more than one planet it will be impossible to exterminate us.

The space age has replaced the stone age. So now we have no choice: it is Mars - or nothing, see 2 Peter 3:10 - 13. Therefore we have received eternal life through Jesus, see 1 John 5:11, and ¨a kingdom which cannot be moved¨, Hebrews 12:28.

With Jesus, there is also no more need to be too superstitious, see Acts 17:22.

¨Sed in his omnibus supervincimus per eum, qui dilexit nos¨, Romans 8:37.

Why Should We Colonize Mars?

In the book of Revelation we read: ¨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¨, Revelation 21:1. We know that Jesus ¨made the worlds¨, see Hebrews 1:2, and we also know that ¨the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up¨, 2 Peter 3:10.

Of course Elijah, who sits at the right hand of the Lord Jesus, must witness first, Matthew 17:11, during 1260 days, see Revelation 11:3, before he - like Jesus - is crucified in Jerusalem ¨where also our Lord was crucified¨, Revelation 11:8, and then rise up on the fourth day, Revelation 11:11. Subsequently Elijah will live on Mars together with us, and then we will eventually travel from Mars to visit Earth as Jude mentions, see Jude 1:14, and

I remember when I first met Elijah in Athens, Greece, in 1989. He had come back from Moscow in Russia, where he had witnessed for Jesus to Michail Gorbachev. At that time I was a rather young man with a Master of Laws degree from the University of Stockholm, in Sweden, and I had just come back to visit Europe after a sejour in New Orleans in 1988 and in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1989. 1990 I went back to the States and to New York, and I still remember my dear Bible class friends Tamias and Gina, as well as the brave and wise priest Arthur N. Pappas, in the Upper West Side ¨Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation¨. Since then I have worked with medicine for two hospitals in Sweden, successfully sold ads and subscriptions for newspapers, and now I basically work as a technician and live with my family in Belgium since more than 5 years.

Anyway, there are several reasons why it is urgent to colonize Mars. First, the New Testament urges us to do so. Jesus wants us to ¨preach the gospel to every creature¨ in the Universe, see Mark 16:15. Jesus also prophesied about us traveling to the Moon and living on Mars, see Luke 21:25.

The main reason why we should colonize Mars is because successful extraterrestrial colonization would make life easier and speedup technology. In order for us humans to survive as a species we can protect ourselves much better if we do the Universe more redundant. Sooner or later we must anyway leave Earth. Earth is our cradle and not our destiny.

Without a Mars colonization program humanity will be as extinct as the dinosaurs. When we see the Asteroid coming it will be too late to leave this planet! If we move out of the Earth it is not because we want to but because we have to. Nuclear wars, great earthquakes, famines, pestilences, monster hurricanes etc, see Luke 21:10 - 11, and Revelation 16:3, 18, is the reason for our going. We are colonists like our remote ancestors and we look upon this world as a bridge towards a better future with a better environment.

We need to colonize Mars not for political prestige or military power, but because we are in a desperate race against disaster. Our Lord Jesus has promised us victory and we know that ¨with God nothing shall be impossible¨, Luke 1:37.

This generation is the crucial generation, see Matthew 24:34 and Acts 2:40, because this is now the great and short moment when we have the resources to get mankind off this planet. Soon we will face a world with 15 billion or so more people where we will face a daily battle to fight to stay alive and without resources to go into space and get rich. Mankind does not live on Earth. Man lives in the Universe. We have only advantages of space colonization and especially the colonization of Mars. We should listen to what our instincts are trying to tell us. Not only is Mars the future home for mankind, but it also is a tremendous challenge and Mars is worth a whole lot of money.

Mars is very similar to the planet Earth. A day on Mars is 24.5 hours long and it has as much land area as the Earth. Mars has water at the polar caps, and it have seasons and similar rotational patterns as the Earth. The thin Martian atmosphere and the temperature differences between night and day are problems we can solve with our advanced technology. We can turn Mars into our solar system's most hospitable planet for humans. Mars is the right place for our expanding technological civilization. Now is the right time to colonize Mars! What are we waiting for?

¨Non, dico vobis, sed nisi paenitentiam egeritis, omnes similiter peribitis¨, Luke 13:3.

Why Should We Mind Our Own Business?

In 1 Thessalonians 4:11 we are given instructions to support ourselves: ¨And that ye study to be quiet and, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you¨. The reason for this exhortation is that some people think that Jesus' return is so imminent that they need to quit working. But by so doing they are adding to those who need to be supported by those who are working. Now we should work so that we can stand with integrity and ¨walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing¨, 1 Thessalonians 4:12. This in order to help support those who cannot work, and to ourselves ¨have lack of nothing¨. This is the actual meaning with the words in 1 Thessalonians 4:11 that we should mind our own business.

We can profit greatly from the instruction in 1 Thessalonians 4:11. First we are encouraged to ¨study to be quiet¨. The underlying theme here is tranquility of spirit. By self-control our lives are characterized by inner peace and strength. Then we are exhorted to mind our own business. This gives us the possibility to take care of our own needs and also of those who depend upon us. Accordingly it is stated: ¨But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel¨, 1 Timothy 5:8.

As entrepreneurs we become key driving forces in our economy. To become an owner means to be able to shape and control one's own destiny in today's globalized world. In order for us to have entrepreneurial success we need passion, luck, and a willingness to risk everything. With Jesus and the New Testament we are on the victorious road.

¨Renati non ex semine corruptibili sed incorruptibili per verbum Dei vivum et permanens¨, 1 Peter 1:23.

What Do They Sing In Revelation 15:3 - 4?

What do those who have been victorious over the beast - and over his image, and over the number of his name - sing in Revelation 15:3 - 4? And why is this song called the song of Moses and of the Lamb, see Revelation 15:3?

In Revelation 15:3 the overcomers of the great tribulation sing praises concerning the ¨great and marvellous¨works and the ¨just and true¨ ways of the Lord Jesus.

This is done as those victorious persons remember the first canticle of Moses - pronounced after the passage of the Red Sea - where the Old Testament Lord is said to be ¨doing wonders¨, Exodus 15:11. In the second canticle of Moses, in Deuteronomy 32:4, all the ways of the Old Testament Lord are said to be ¨judgment¨.

Does this mean that Moses is holy? No, not at all, but quite to the contrary. Revelation 15:4 states namely concerning Jesus that ¨thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest¨. Thus only Jesus is holy, which also is confirmed by Jesus' words ¨be of good cheer; I have overcome the world¨, John 16:33. Jesus is in other words the way, the truth and the life, and there is salvation in no one else, see John 14:6 and Acts 4:12.

We remember that Moses had put a vail over his face, ¨that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished¨, 2 Corinthians 3:13. Now that which is abolished is the Old Testament ministry of death, see 2 Corinthians 3:7, for ¨Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law¨, Galatians 3:13, in abolishing ¨the law of commandments¨, Ephesians 2:15. On the one hand Moses described the righteousness which is of the law, but now on the other hand ¨Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth¨, Romans 10:4 - 5.

Unfortunately the minds of the followers of the Mosaic law are blinded: ¨for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ¨, 2 Corinthians 3:14. One of the reasons for the New Testament is to set to liberty those who are captive under the Old Testament law, see 2 Corinthians 3:17. The law and the prophets were until John the Baptist, see Luke 16:16, but even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart, nevertheless when they shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away, see 2 Corinthians 3:15 - 16.

Jesus said that all the Old Testament prophets were thieves and robbers, see John 10:8 - 10, but Moses was as well a cold blooded murderer, and he even killed an Egyptian and hid him in the sand, see Exodus 2:12 and Acts 7:24.

The Israelite exodus from Egypt included more than 2 million persons - women and children included - even if the Old Testament obviously only considers the 600 000 Israelite men worth to be counted, Exodus 12:37. Only two persons survived the exodus and entered into Israel, Joshua and Caleb, see Numbers 32:12. What kind of leadership is that, which has all the millions of your own people killed, except two men? The consequences of Moses' bad leadership and evil doctrine is still seen today.

¨So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation¨, Hebrews 9:28. Because we are no longer under the laws of Moses as it is written: ¨For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast¨, Ephesians 2:8 - 9.

Accordingly we now are ¨looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearance of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ¨, Titus 2:13.

¨Magna et mirabilia opera tua,
Domine, Deus omnipotens;
iustae et verae viae tuae,
Rex gentium!
Quis non timebit, Domine,
et glorificabit nomen tuum?
Quia solus Sanctus,
quoniam omnes gentes venient
et adorabunt in conspectu tuo,
quoniam iudicia tua manifestata sunt¨,
Revelation 15:3 - 4.

Was Moses A Devil Worshipper?

The symbol of Satan is the serpent as it is written: ¨And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world¨, Revelation 12:9.

Now, Moses used the serpent as a religious symbol, and he ¨made a serpent of brass¨, Numbers 21:9. But then, why did Moses make this serpent? The answer to this question is that the Old Testament God told Moses: ¨Make thee a fiery serpent¨, Numbers 21:8.

Does this mean that the Old Testament God is the Devil and that the Old Testament Moses was a Devil worshipper?

Obviously it does.

As so many times before ¨Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel¨, 1 Chronicles 21:1. Now, by which name is Satan called in the Old Testament? Satan is in fact called ¨Lord¨ in the Old Testament, and it was this ¨Lord¨ Satan who moved David to ¨go, number Israel and Judah¨, 2 Samuel 24:1.

Are there some more proof that Satan is the Old Testament God and that Old Testament Moses was his servant? Yes. We know that the serpent is ¨more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made¨, Genesis 3:1. The Hebrew word serpent here, nachash, means literally ¨a shining one¨. This is the reason why Paul writes that ¨Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light¨, 2 Corinthians 11:14. But Moses was clever and ¨put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished¨, 2 Corinthians 3:13.

In Genesis 3:15 God says to the serpent: ¨And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed¨. This is the reason why Jesus says to the followers of the Jewish religion: ¨Ye are of your father the devil¨, John 8:44, but concerning the Greeks: ¨The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified¨, John 12:23. The apostles of Jesus - who initially were Jewish nationalists - got the message right, wrote down the New Testament in Greek, and entrusted it to the Greeks, and went global in preaching eternal salvation to all believers, Romans 10:12 and Revelation 5:9.

What a difference it is on the one hand between the Old Testament violent Devil God, who says: ¨Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying¨, Proverbs 19:18, and on the other hand our New Testament Lord God Jesus who says: ¨Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven¨, Matthew 18:10.

In Genesis 9:11 the Old Testament God says that there will no more ¨be a flood to destroy the earth¨. In John 8:44 Jesus calls the Old Testament God a ¨murderer¨, ¨because there is no truth in him¨, and Jesus continues to call the Old Testament God ¨a liar¨, and the father of lies, John 8:44. In Luke Jesus continues: ¨And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all¨, Luke 17:26 - 27. Jesus underlines the seriousness of the situation by telling those ¨which shall be upon the housetop¨ to not get into their houses and try to take away their stuff, Luke 17:31. Since Jesus promises that at His coming it will be like as in the days of Noah when ¨the flood came, and took them all away¨, Matthew 24:39, it is clear that the Old Testament God, who promised no more floods, is the Devil, the father of lies.

It has rightfully been pointed out that ¨the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ¨, John 1:17.

Would the New Orleans and Gulf Coast catastrophe - by Hurricane Katrina - have been this disastrous if church priests and pastors more fervently in general would warn people that Jesus has foretold that our time is like the time of Noah, Matthew 24:37? Probably not. The responsibility for the Hurricane Katrina disaster lies heavy on the Church for this.

Now concerning the Jewish people we read in John 4:22 that ¨salvation is of the Jews¨.

That ¨blindness in part is happened to Israel¨, Romans 11:25, should not make us forget that we very soon will need the Jewish people like never before for ¨what shall receiving of them be, but life from the dead¨, Romans 11:15. Therefore Jesus says of the days of the great tribulation: ¨And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days¨, Mark 13:20. Let us then remember all the brotherly Christian greetings from old like: ¨All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Ceasar's household¨, Philippians 4:22.

¨Expectantes beatam spem et adventum gloriae magni Dei et salvatoris nostri Iesu Christi¨, Titus 2:13.
