Chapter 14 - HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED IF
THERE IS LIFE OUT THERE?

Have you ever wondered if there is life out there? Let's look in the Bible! Revelation 12:12 "Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them". It reads heavens, not heaven where God's throne is. This is talking about all the stars and planets. And again, "ye that dwell in THEM" Jeremiah 33:22 "the host of heaven cannot be numbered" It is starting to sound to me like there could be a lot of life when I read "cannot be numbered" Where could all of this life have come from? Psalm 33:6 "By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth". It seems evident God made "the host of them" the same way he made us. Have you read how God made Adam? Genesis 2:7 "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul". Yes, we were all given life the same way," by the breath of his mouth".

The bible tells us about some of the beings God has created. For instance we read in Isaiah 6:1-2 "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly". We don't know how many seraphims there are, but we can see they have six wings, a face, feet, and can fly and speak.

The prophet Ezekiel seen the cherubim and gives us a very detailed description. You can read this for yourself if you like. Here is a small part of what's found in Ezekiel 1:5-28 & 10:8-22. "The cherubim "had the likeness of a man. And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the color of burnished brass. And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle".

The cherubim are mentioned other places in the bible. We read of God putting them on guard duty after he removed Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. Genesis 3:24 "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life". Some of my readers may already know that this is the type of being Lucifer is. We find this in Ezekiel 28:14 "Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire". We have no record of other Cherubims turning against God, only Lucifer.

And let us not forget the "four beasts" John saw. (The word beast came from the Greek word 'zoa' and means living ones or creatures) Revelation 4:6-8...four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come".
