Down through time it has been said that man is not alone. With the invention of radio and then television, science fiction enthusiasts have heard and believed more and more that “we are not alone.”
In the ‘50s, little green men and creatures from other planets were all the rage at theaters across the land. Some, who believe strongly in UFOs and such, watch constantly for some sign that extraterrestrials exist.
All need to understand that it is true – mankind is not alone. There is a being that exists that watches everyone and has unlimited power, power far beyond that of nuclear bombs.
This being sees everything and cares for everything. This being is God.
God created all that is. He created a place for man to exist (Gen. 1: 1-24) and then said, “Let us make man… (Gen. 1:26). This statement speaks to the God Head, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.
John wrote about this in John chapter one, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made” (John 1:1-3).
The Spirit is also seen in the creation, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Gen. 1:1, 2).
God made sure man had air to breathe, food to eat, water to drink and ground on which to stand – then he created man. God knew his creation would need something to do, so man was placed in the “…garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it (Gen. 2:15).
God provided the things man needed, even companionship as man alone God said was not good. God started the first home with Adam and Eve – they were not alone for God was there.
When sin entered the world by Adam and Eve disobeying God, he did not leave them alone – for he cared for them. They were punished, cast from the beautiful garden, death entering the world, but God still cared for them.
Man was not alone when he sinned in the garden and man is not alone when he sins today. God still cares for his creation. God has a plan for man’s salvation that was in his mind from the beginning (Eph. 3:8-11). God would send Jesus to save people from their sin, if they would obey him.
Christ had a mission to accomplish when he came to earth. He was to die at Calvary for the sins of mankind. He gave himself freely for the sins of mankind.
God allowed his Son to be crucified, “Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it” (Acts 2:23, 24).
Those who do not believe God was able to accomplish his plan through Christ have missed the truth of God’s word. The church the body of Christ was also in God’s plan, and it was established on the day of Pentecost.
Mankind has never been “alone.” God was in the beginning and always will be. He left his word with the instructions on how to receive forgiveness.
Man is to have faith (Heb. 11:6), to repent of sins (Luke 13:3), to confess Jesus as being the Son of God, (Matt. 10:32; Acts 8:37), then to be baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38), and then live a life of faithfulness to God (Rev. 2:10b).
Man has never been alone and never will be alone.
