Tonight we are speaking on a subject which becomes more and more timely in the era in which we are living, “Bible prophecy and the control of space.” Twenty years ago if someone talked about the control of space and described the areas around our solar system, and the earth, or talked about a program which might reach out beyond our solar system in which men of earth would be flying through space, in the areas around us, reaching the summit of our atmosphere and planning on military equipment for the upper stratums, then someone would have said: You have been listening to fiction. You have been listening too, too many stories. Twenty of thirty years ago, they would have classified this as the futuristic Jules Verne story. But I think that you who remember the writings of Jules Verne of yesterday, that very timely and prophetic was his writing, for his submarines and his airships are now a reality. And we have gone far beyond his wildest imagination which actually might have been vision in forms of fiction writing. But still, the pattern is of what men can think and what men can understand. I might make a statement that might seem fantastic to you, but the fact is, what the mind of man can conceive, the mind of man can do. This might seem strange to you, but there is behind it the capacity to animate it and to carry it forward into action. And to find the vehicles to accomplish the results.
