y[t_] = L[t]*Sin[\[Alpha][t]];

\[Alpha]max = 1;
Lu[t_] = L[t] /. g -> L0*\[CapitalOmega]^2 /. \[Delta] -> (\[CurlyEpsilon] * L0)/(\[CapitalOmega]^2);

Equa = Equ /. \[CapitalOmega] ->  1 /.\[CurlyEpsilon] -> 0.05 /. m->1;

Lua[t_] = Lu[t] /. \[CapitalOmega] ->  1 /. \[CurlyEpsilon] -> 0.05 /. m->1;

sol = NDSolve[{Equa == 
   0, \[Alpha][0] == 1, \[Alpha]'[0] == 0}, \[Alpha][
  t], {t, -10, 10}, MaxSteps -> 100000];
  
a[t_] = \[Alpha][t]/.sol;

x1[t_] = Lua[t]*Cos[a[t]];
  
Show[Graphics[{Black, AbsolutePointSize[10], 
  Point[{x1[1],0}]}, Axes -> True],PlotRange->{{-10,10},{-10,10}}]

It must be a problem with the Point function here I guess.

Because if I instead want to plot the graph x1[t], i.e.

Plot[x1[t], {t, -10, 10}]

enter image description here

then it works.

Also, if I do

Show[Graphics[{Black, AbsolutePointSize[10], 
  Point[{0,0}]}, Axes -> True],PlotRange->{{-10,10},{-10,10}}]

enter image description here

It works and it shows me a black point at (0,0) (also, the Lua function works too without any problems, I can plot points which depend on the Lua function).

The problem only arises if I include x1[t] into it, then for some reasons the Graphics function (or Points function, I don't know which one here is the culprit) doesn't show me anything, it only shows me this:

enter image description here

EDIT

Even if I do

x1[1][[1]]

Then it still doesn't work if I try to animate it using Manipulate:

ClearAll["Global`*"]

L0 = 2;
\[Omega] = 4;
L[t_] = L0 + \[Delta] *Sin[\[Omega]*t + Pi];
x[t_] = L[t]*Cos[\[Alpha][t]];
y[t_] = L[t]*Sin[\[Alpha][t]];
T = m/2 * ((x'[t])^2 + (y'[t])^2);
U = -m*g*x[t];
Lagr = T - U;
Lgr = Simplify[Expand[Lagr]];
Eq1 = D[#1, #2] - D[D[#1, #3], t] & [Lgr, \[Alpha][t], \[Alpha]'[t]];
Eq2 = Solve[Eq1 == 0, \[Alpha]''[t]];
Equ = Eq1 /. g -> L0*\[CapitalOmega]^2 /. \[Delta] -> (\[CurlyEpsilon] * L0)/(\[CapitalOmega]^2);
\[Alpha]max = 1;
Lu[t_] = L[t] /. g -> L0*\[CapitalOmega]^2 /. \[Delta] -> (\[CurlyEpsilon] * L0)/(\[CapitalOmega]^2);

Equa = Equ /. \[CapitalOmega] ->  1 /.\[CurlyEpsilon] -> 0.05 /. m->1;

Lua[t_] = Lu[t] /. \[CapitalOmega] ->  1 /. \[CurlyEpsilon] -> 0.05 /. m->1;

f[p_] := Module[{sol},sol = NDSolve[{Equa == 
   0, \[Alpha][0] == 1, \[Alpha]'[0] == 0}, \[Alpha][
  t], {t,p,p-1}, MaxSteps -> 100000];
  
a[t_] = \[Alpha][t]/.sol;


x1[t_] = Lua[t]*Cos[a[t]];
y1[t_] = Lua[t]*Sin[a[t]];
  
Show[Graphics[{Black, AbsolutePointSize[10], 
  Point[{x1[p][[1]],y1[p][[1]]}]}, Axes -> True],PlotRange->{{-10,10},{-10,10}}]];
  
Manipulate[f[p], {{p,0,"animate"},0,Infinity,ControlType->Trigger}]

Even if I do

x1[1][[1]], y1[1][[1]]

it still just shows an empty coordinate system. Whereas if I do

0, 0

Then it again shows me a black point at (0,0)

SECOND EDIT

Ok, it seems that I need to do a[t] := instead of =. But if I try to manipulate the parameters [CapitalOmega] and such in my animation, it still fails to work (it does show the black ball, but just as I start my animation, the ball vanishes and I still have a coordinate system with nothing in it)

Code:

The problem I have with is the last manipulate where the g is plotted

You have a syntax error. Look at what x1[1] returns::

x1[1]
(* {1.71046} *)

This is a list, not a number. And you get:

Point[{{1.71046},0}]

This is wrong. Therefore, what you must write is:

Show[Graphics[{Black, AbsolutePointSize[10], Point[{x1[1][[1]], 0}]}, 
  Axes -> True], PlotRange -> {{-10, 10}, {-10, 10}}]

enter image description here

Addendum

The definition of a is wrong syntax. You must write:

a[t_] = \[Alpha][t] /. sol[[1]];
