The Red Planet is a symbol of the blood of Christ, which represents the substitutionary Spiritual death of Jesus Christ on the Cross. The blood of animal sacrifices foreshadowed the Cross (Hebrews 9:12-14). The color of the Red Planet is a reminder of blood of Christ, which is the single most important event in history after the re-Creation during the Appeal Trial of Satan. The Red Planet is a reminder to man and angels of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for mankind.
The name, Mars, came from Satan. It refers to Satan as the god of war, who was defeated when Jesus Christ paid for the sins of the world on the Cross. The name, Mars, is blasphemy. The Romans, who were hoodwinked by the devil, named the planet; and scientists, who are no smarter, have continued the deception. This is just another lie of Satan, the master of deceit, in an attempt to hide the truth of the Cross.
The Red Planet has two sides, front and back. The two sides represent the front and back of Jesus Christ on the Cross. The front represents acceptance and the back represents rejection. Salvation is a matter of personal choice. The planet is pock marked with craters and volcanoes, which represent wounds of the Lord Jesus Christ who was battered, bruised, punctured with nails and thorns, and stabbed with a spear.
