Spiritual Warfare & The Paranormal: How God is at Work in the UFO/UAP Phenomenon
As Christians we have a different understanding of creation.
We know through our personal relationship with God through Christ and the work of the Person of the Holy Spirit that ALL are at work in all of creation.
Nothing slips by God.
We are not materialists or dualists that have mentally hedged God out of our thoughts and lives. The prideful statement that there is no God is an old sin of denial found long before radical "Atheists" shouted it across the media of today.
The current Old Age/New Age obsession with "Aliens" as a savior and the resultant UFO cults is not new either. In times past people called them gods and worshipped them.
If we as Christians understand God as creator we can see with no concern that aside from the angelic entities that God created before mankind that He could have created an entire order of creation we can neither see or comprehend. The added reality that some of these entities are malevolent only adds to the complexity of our universe.
Today we see a new theory of the unseen world around us dubbed "The Shadow Biosphere" as an acknowledgement of that possibility.
God's Holy Word indicated the unseen realm in Job 38:7.
"..while the morning stars sang together
and all the angels[a] shouted for joy?
Here as God speaks to Job we are given details about what was happening as creation unfolded. The "Sons of God" are there and are singing as God creates.
(The phrase “sons of God” in the Old Testament refers to spirit beings/angels. The “sons of God” (Genesis 6:2, 4) is a phrase used three other times in the Bible outside of Genesis 6—Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:7. In all three of these scriptures the “sons of God” are spirit/angelic beings, including Satan himself.) Were there other entities or creatures that God had created and were present but just not mentioned in scripture?
And we also know that these entities, these aliens if you prefer are older than the earth.
The Unseen Realm or a Shadow Biosphere?
The realization that an unseen realm has always been active around us has been an aha moment for many in todays world. But that is only because we have been brainwashed into a materialistic mindset not acknowledging what Christians have know for thousands of years.
The unseen realm exists along and within our own. We know next to nothing about it, nor do we have a clue about what God may have populated it with.
On biblical indication of another imperceivable dimension that surrounds us is found in
2 Kings 6:16-17
16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
The unseen realm was present all the time but God had to alter or adjust his eyesight or perception so he could see what was actually surrounding them.
There is no reason to believe it is any different today.
History however shows us that whom ever or whatever these entities are they have not always been friendly or helpful.
There is also no reason to believe that has changed either.
A Shadow Biosphere or multiple biospheres may be present and each may be populated with a multitude of flora and fauna.
God's Sovereignty, Providence & "The Phenomenon"
Many people in fact many Christians that are interested in or who research the phenomenon speak of it as if it is outside of God's creation. There are a few who have a Christian Worldview that includes whatever all of this is within God's creation (Timothy Alberino for example).
Lets clarify what we mean: God's providence is His divine plan or purpose while God's sovereignty is His dominion; His legal claim over all things. God is the most perfect and preeminent of all beings. He is before all things and rules all things. Therefore, He is sovereign over all things.
Therefore God is Sovereign over other dimensions of reality, portals, the Shadow Biosphere(s), Aliens, Good and Evil entities and whatever else His infinite mind has created.
The claim that Alien life would shatter Christianity and all religions is only for the faint and weak of faith.
We can look at the often referred to scriptures of Matthew 6:26-34 to get a basic understanding of how God is present and at work.
26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one [a]cubit to his [b]stature?
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not [c]arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Entities That Corrupt Men
"The Phenomenon" is not a mystery to God.
We see from Genesis 6 that these entities, The Son's of God are capable of mating with human woman and teaching men evil knowledge and skills.
They were tasked by God to steward mankind and tutor us and help us develop. All two hundred of them rebelled and instead taught men evil ways of destruction and ultimately they bred with human women to produce cannibalistic evil giants that necessitated the worldwide flood.
They brought depravity to humanity.
The detail for this point of view is found in The Book of Enoch (mentioned several times in the bible) is is well explained by Dr. Michael Heiser. His book can be ordered form this link: Reversing Hermon: Enoch, the Watchers, and the Forgotten Mission of Jesus Christ
REVERSING HERMON lecture
Video from ChannelC²
So my point here is that if these entities could come to earth and corrupt mankind to the extent they did, there is no reason this could not be going on again but in a very different way.
It is also wise to note that (as far as I can tell) there have been no "Aliens" that have actively promoted a Christian worldview in fact many have done the opposite.
The Coming of The End
When Christ ascended into Heaven to the Right Hand of God the Father to begin His session His second coming was at that point imminent. Imminent meaning it could happen anytime. Today we no doubt are very close whether that be next week or in a 100 years.
The end will come and whatever "The Phenomenon" is may very well be part of that series of events or not.
Humans are gullible and we like to be fooled.
We often choose lies over truth just to feed our delusions and ego.
Many today are intent in my view of being fooled by unknown entities into thinking and doing things that are clearly not biblical or in the best interest of the individuals or mankind.
Let us all hope and pray that God will deliver us from evil in all its forms!
