For centuries, skeptics viewed God’s people with derision and disdain as they spoke glowingly of traveling to, and living in, God’s Heaven beyond the sky. With contempt the critics pointed out that space travel for human beings was a scientific impossibility, and that such nonsense should be limited to the fantasy world of comic strips.

Then, suddenly, men began venturing into space. Today, the nations of the world plan for space stations and colonies in the sky. Not too many have begun preparing for a voyage through space, however, because of uncertainties regarding scheduling, property ownership, isolation, loneliness, effect on health, stress, and fear of the unknown.

The heart leaps up when one thinks of leaving this earth and living in a fantastic new storybook city in the sky. Something about that thought fires a person’s soul as few other things in this world. And there is a reason for this – a God given reason: Jesus implanted, deeply within the human heart, a desire to live in space, because He plans space living and space travel for His people when He sets up His new Kingdom.
