I am a witness of a “UFO” as I’ve written before. Article here. It was completely unexpected, in the middle of a huge city, and I was within 100 yards of the ship. Doing some rough estimates that you can see in the article I wrote, the ship was roughly 60-80 yards in diameter (180-240 feet). Yes, it was massive.
I’m not a “believer” in UFOs. I saw one, so for me they are absolutely real. They are a fact that has shaped my perspective of life for 22 years. I have no doubts or questions.
So the question comes up. If aliens are real, what about God, Jesus, and the Bible?
The answer is simple. Aliens have ZERO impact on God, Jesus, or the Bible.
Despite what humans have believed over the centuries, the Bible has told us many things people did not believe at one time or another. It has told us the truth before we proved it through scientific processes. Some examples:
1) The earth is a sphere or circular in shape, and the fabric of space is stretching.
“He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.” (Isaiah 40:22)
2) The Earth exists in empty space.
“…he suspends the earth over nothing” (Job 26:7b).
3) Humanity is descended from one man and one woman. Genetics has proven this fact.
Paul says, “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands” (Acts 17:26).
Here are some sites with more. Here and here.
In the same way that the Bible has revealed these things to us, The Bible also clearly tells us that there are other beings in the universe created by God. So if aliens show up in their ships, it won’t have any impact on my faith in Jesus Christ. From what I have seen and experienced first hand, Jesus is a fact to me. I have no questions or doubts.
Some examples where the Bible clearly show there are “aliens” are below. So don’t be afraid or caught by “surprise.”
Jesus created us and them.
“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him” (Colossians 1:16).
Additionally, He has created multiple worlds.
“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;” (Hebrews 1:1-2). Notice the plural there, worlds.
“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11:3). Again, notice the plural, worlds.
There are other beings who have been created that worship Him. It is a multitude!
“You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you” (Nehemiah 9:6).
Angels are not human, and God has created them. They could be called aliens too as they are alien to Earth.
“Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings” (Revelation 4:6b-8a).
Thus as Jesus has created all things including other beings in the universe, we should not be surprised, frightened, or waiver in our faith if some of them show up. I would love to sit down with them to find out the story of their world in relation to God and all that has gone on. Perhaps they are here visiting the Earth because this is where God will rule the universe. The New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:9-27) will be the seat and throne of power and the Earth His capital.
The New Jerusalem is 1,500 miles wide, long, and high. It will be in orbit around the earth. The moon has a diameter of 2,159 miles. The New Jerusalem has a diameter of 2,390 miles from corner to opposite corner. Yes, the New Jerusalem is the same size or larger than the moon. The moon is a sphere as the New Jerusalem is a cube.

Merry Christmas everyone!
Thanks, Daniel, for the link to my blog!
You’re welcome! Thank you for putting together the math and calculations for the New Jerusalem. Very helpful!
