Christian cross launched into the earth's orbit

In the wee hours of the morning on May 22, a Christian cross was launched into space and it will orbit the earth for the next year or so.

The cross is about 2 inches long and was cut from the cross that Arthur Blessitt carried around the world, earning him a listing in Guinness World Records for the world's longest walk. Beginning in 1968, Blessitt spent the last 44 years walking with his cross over 39,671 miles, through 319 countries and major island groups.

According to Blessitt's website,

How thrilling to know that a cross for Jesus is lifted up above the earth! Circling this planet. Day and Night the cross is lifted up. Above wars, poverty, crime, greed, hate and pride the cross is circling in Glory. Jesus said, "People love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil". (John 3:19) The cross is lifted up above all evil on earth. Also the cross is above, as a blessing upon the earth. A thrill to every believer in and follower of Jesus to know the cross is above him or her at all times. You can look up at the heavens on a star filled night and know the cross is up there above the earth.

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places". (Ephesians 6:12)

For sure the Devil hates The Cross! It was there that Jesus died for our sins, shed His Holy Blood, died and then arose again and won the victory over Satan, sin and death.

Now the cross is not only up 'on' earth but lifted up 'over' the earthly domain of Satan! Glory!

Blessitt's first attempt to send a cross into space was in 2001, when it would have been launched from Russia. The launch was delayed due to 9/11 and the launch company eventually failed. In August 2008, a second attempt was made with Falcon 1, from the Marshall Islands, where a cross, Bible and Jesus stickers were launched. The satellite failed. A company called Celestis included the current cross in its launch canister on the Falcon 9 with SpaceX at no cost.

"We wave the cross in space declaring 'The Earth is the Lord's'," Blessitt says in a press release. "We wave the cross in the face of Satan over all the earth proclaiming Good News in Jesus Christ for all people."

Blessitt points to the New Testament verse of Matthew 24:30, indicating that the cross orbiting the earth is the 'sign of the Son of man in heaven:'

And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

    What was the point?  This was totally sophomoric and absurd.  Sending the Roddenberry and James Doohan's ashes into space had more meaning and purpose.  What? They figure a 2 inch cross is going to convert the Roddenberry's ashes from humanism to Xianity?  ROFL

        Which deity are you talking about? Horus? Zeus? Mithra? Krishna? Kthulu? Adonis? And what is it are we suppose to praise this supposed deity for? Grapes? What soul are you talking about?

            A good history book shows that religion was created by humans, not by some deity.

    Since the Bible teaches the Sun revolves around the Earth, I hope the Sun doesn't slam into it! What a joke! Christians and other "revealed" religionists need to be educated to the fact that their "revealed" religions are in conflict with God's gift to us of reason.

    Progress! Bob Johnson

       I spit up my coffee, laughing.  That's a good one, Robert!

    The cross is harmless & maybe it will make a difference, what is worse (in my view) are the negative (non productive) comments in regards to the cross sent into orbit. Until there is a lifting up of all that are trying to do good as this person(s) is, the level of spiritual maturity/transformation will not be reached.
    The end time prophets are not understand/they are persecuted greatly. Just saying.. perhaps it's better to DO something rather than degrade those that are (just because it doesn't make sense to you, maybe it doesn't need to .. ). Jesus Lives! & my prayer is that we embrace other's efforts when the attempt is to bring God Glory.

      In what way do you think the barbaric symbolism will make a difference and just how is it that what it symbolizes is harmless? How is sending a cross into space doing something?
