    Why doesn't the gravity of stars/planets affect us?

    The gravity of the stars does affect us. The gigantic black hole, and the many stars surrounding it, cause our solar system to orbit around that center of our galaxy. It takes about 250 million years for our sun to orbit our galaxy. Our solar system is in the “Goldilocks” zone from the center. Any closer and we would get too much radiation from the center; and any further as we would get too little. There would be no life on the earth if we were much closer, or further, from the center of our galaxy. Our solar system is also in between the spiral arms which are crowded with stars. If we were in those arms there would be no life on earth. With stars that close together there would be a super nova close enough to the earth to keep life from forming. We are in an empty region which means there are no stars close enough to kill all life with a super nova, and it also means that we can see out into the universe because our view is not obstructed by clouds of matter. God wants us to see His creation because the whole creation declares His glory. So we have a very rare position to see His creation. Very few solar systems are in this empty region. So our earth is a very rare planet indeed.

    All of the stars affect our planet with their gravity. BUT that effect is very very tiny. Every plane flying over the surface of the earth has more effect on us. The gravity of the planets have a larger effect. But this is still small because of the great distance from the earth. The gravity of the sun has a huge effect on the earth. It causes us to orbit around the sun and also affects the tides. The earth is also in the “Goldilocks”zone of the sun too. We are the only planet were the temperature is constant enough to have water in all three forms of matter. ( solid, liquid and gas ) The gravity of the moon has the largest effect on our tides. Without these tides there would be no life on the earth.

    Our solar system is a very rare solar system that has only one star. Almost all star systems have more than one star. Life is only possible in a star system with one and only one star. With more than one star the temperature would be too hot some of the time and too cold some of the time. We orbit around one star and so our temperature is constant enough for life to take place. The natural is a sign of the spiritual. There is only natural life with one and only one true star. This is to show that there is only eternal life when one trusts in the One and Only true God.

    The earth is the one and only planet in our solar system that has one and only one moon. Mercury and Venus both have no moon and no life. Mars has two moons and no life. Jupiter and Saturn both have over 60 moons and no life. Uranus and Neptune both have numerous moons and no life. Pluto and Charon are twin planets and they have four moons and no life. This is to illustrate that there is no life without the body of Christ ( the true Church) and that there is one and only one body of Christ. To try to divide that true body of Christ simply brings death and not life. BUT to separate yourself from the false church brings life and not death.

    Our moon is also very very large compared to the other moons of the other planets. It is about 1/4 of the diameter of the earth. The other planets have some moons even larger than our moon but they are much smaller compared to the planet they orbit. Our moon is the largest compared to the size of the earth. This is to show that the true body of Christ has to be large enough to preserve life on the earth. .one will put one thousand to flight (meaning demons), but two will put ten thousand to flight." [Leviticus 26:8; Deuteronomy 32:30]. Always seek to unite with a true follower of Jesus.

    Our moon is tidally locked to the earth. That is the same side of the moon that is seen from the earth all of the time. The earth (the world) only sees the side of the moon that is focused on the world. That side of the moon is always focused on the world. That is a sign of the false church. It is always focused on the world instead of being focused on Christ. Christ is our only source of spiritual light, just as the sun is our only source of natural light. The world does not see the hidden side of the moon, or the true body of Christ. That side of the moon is focused on the sun and not the world; just as the true body of Christ is focused on Christ and not the world.

    God tells us about Him hiding His true Church in The Revelation:

    Revelation 12 (NIV)

    The Woman and the Dragon

    12 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
