What Does The Bible Say About Space Travel

The Bible has been around for thousands of years and is still a source of wisdom, guidance, and inspiration today. The book was written by many different authors over the course of hundreds of years, but they all share one common message: God loves us, wants what is best for us, and will work through anything—even space travel—in order to bring that about.

The Bible Says That God Made The Earth

The Bible Says That God Made The Earth And He Made It For Us

God created the earth for humans to live on. There are several biblical passages that show this idea in action, specifically Genesis 1:1-2 and Psalms 146:6. In these verses, we see that God made the heavens, sun and moon before he created the earth. So why did he make all this other stuff? To show his glory!

The Bible Says That The Earth Is Round

If you’re reading this article, it’s most likely because you’ve heard someone claim that the Bible says the Earth is flat or that it has a dome over it. Most of us in the modern world know better than to believe these claims; however, there are other passages used by those who still hold to these beliefs.

The truth is that while some verses do appear to be referring to things as they appear from our vantage point on Earth (like Genesis 1:16), others seem more fantastical and obviously metaphorical (like Isaiah 40:22). Below we’ll examine each passage that could be taken either way, so you can decide for yourself what the Bible does say about space travel!

The Bible Says That Stars Are Like Spindles

Stars are mentioned in the Bible. The word is translated from a Hebrew word meaning “that which turns around” or “spindle” and refers to the stars as spindles in the sky. The Bible is not a science textbook, but when it touches on matters of astronomy, we can understand God’s plan for humanity better by looking into these verses.

The Bible tells us that there are many stars (Genesis 1:16), but also that God made them all (Psalm 148:3). What does this mean? It means something similar to what Christian scientists have been saying: the universe may be vast beyond imagination, but it was created by One who loves us deeply and cares about our wellbeing.

The Bible Says That God Created The Rotation And Revolution Of The Earth

The Bible says that God created the rotation and revolution of the Earth, which is called the Coriolis effect in meteorology. The earth rotates on its axis, making it possible for us to have day and night. This rotation is what causes various times zones across the world, as well as creates seasons depending on where you live.

The Bible also says that God created a year where 365 days pass before we reach back to this point again. A full revolution around our sun takes approximately 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds (give or take), which means every year there are approximately 99 leap years!

The Bible Describes Space Travel

You might be surprised to learn that the Bible describes space travel. Here are some examples:

  • Genesis 1:16-18: “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.” This verse describes a flat earth where there is no air and nothing blocks our view of outer space. The sun and moon are smaller than we think they are today, but they still appear much larger when viewed from Earth because they have no atmosphere around them (see Exodus 24:10).* Genesis 8:22-23 says that Noah sent forth a dove after seven days had passed in his ark during which time he had been floating on water. If this were true then we would expect Noah’s ark to have floated out into space if it were completely submerged during those days.* Genesis 15:5 describes how Abraham left Ur with his family when it was 75 years old because “the Lord came down” unto him at noon from heaven.” This would mean that God landed his spaceship near Abraham’s tent so that he could speak face-to-face with him without having any trouble hearing or seeing each other.* In Exodus 3:2 Moses spoke with an angel who told him “I will bring thee up into this mountain”; so Moses did as told by going up Mount Sinai where God gave him instructions for building tabernacle furniture including curtains woven together with blue twine.* In Exodus 19-20 Moses went up Mount Sinai again only this time he did not come back down until 40 days later after receiving instructions from God ~~and making covenants~~with Him!

From the beginning of Genesis to Revelation, we are given a picture that the heavens and space travel are a part of God’s plan for humanity.

From the beginning of Genesis to Revelation, we are given a picture that the heavens and space travel are a part of God’s plan for humanity.

In Genesis 1:16-18, we see the creation of the heavens and earth. According to this passage, it took six days for God to create all things (including space) – even though it seemed like only 24 hours. This is because time works differently on Earth than in outer space; one day on Earth equals one year in outer space! This means that if an astronaut travels at light speed (186,000 miles per second), then they will age 100 years while traveling through our solar system. This would make them 200 years old when they arrive at Pluto! Yet another example comes in Genesis 1:19-23 which tells us that birds fly above us in order to tell us what’s happening on Earth below them. The Bible makes it clear how big our universe is by saying “He made two great lights—the greater light [sun] to rule over the day and the lesser light [moon]to rule over the night.” The sun and moon together provide enough energy for plants grow and provide oxygen so animals could survive without having any fossil fuels or any other kind of fuel source whatsoever.”

It’s clear from the Bible that God created the universe, including space travel. The stars are like spindles, and they move in their own way as well. God gives us a chance to explore our world and see what else is out there with Him.
