Do we as Christians believe what the bible says?
Most of us struggle with our day to day faith. We find that many things are allowed (by us) to take precedence over our faith, our worship of God.
Our modern secular culture has sidelined the transcendence of reality in favor of scientism in which science has all the answers.
Yet today the so called "paranormal" is very popular, Satanism is on the rise as are other pagan religions including a new religion of UFO/Alien worship.
The New Age view that there can be Aliens that disappear or travel between dimensions and there cannot be angels or demons is irrational.
God's Word often states how things are at a certain time in history or how they are now.
In the videos below Joel Webbon talks with Ben Garrett to discuss what God's word says about the invisible realm and all of the entites that reside there and under the earth as well.
A video from Dr. Michael Heiser is also very informative.

The Watchers, The Nephilim, & Creatures Living Deep Inside The Earth
"In this episode of Theology Applied, Pastor Joel Webbon teams up with Ben Garrett of @HauntedCosmos_ to discuss the Watchers, the Nephilim, and their theories for what/who is currently living at the center of the earth." from video introduction
From The Haunted Cosmos website:
"Welcome to the Haunted Cosmos, a podcast exploring the high strangeness woven into the fabric of God’s spoken world.
Whether you are a long time cryptid hunter, a freshly graduated conspiracy theorist, or completely new to all of this and feeling totally lost, we are very glad you’re here.
In this introductory episode, we give you a thesis for the show consisting of this primary axiom: the world we inhabit is an embattled one made up of much more than just stuff.
The world is a nonlinear place. Its totality is far greater than the sum of its parts, and that’s because there is an entire section of the world that is unseen. Unfortunately, many Christians today have forgotten that unseen section and so cannot properly handle some of the things that inevitably happen in a world such as this..."
"..They will be gathered together as prisoners in a pit; they will be shut up in a prison, and after many days they will be punished..."

WHO Were The Spirits In Prison That Jesus PREACHED To?
Video from Dr. Michael S. Heiser
"Baptism is important because it is a sign; it's as though when you go down below the water and come out, you are mimicking this journey of Jesus. But early church tradition also linked baptism to a denunciation of the dark powers, in the baptismal formulas. Because their idea was Jesus goes down there, he preaches to the spirits in prison, and Peter hints that those spirits are not the dead humans. They are the Watchers from the book of Enoch." from video introduction
What is the bottomless pit (Revelation 9:1-12)?
“Bottomless pit” is one word in the Greek of the New Testament and is literally the “abyss,” which means “bottomless, unbounded, the pit, or the immeasurable depth.” Roman mythology featured a similar place called Orcus, a very deep gulf or chasm in the lowest parts of the earth used as the common receptacle of the dead and, especially, as the abode of demons. The bottomless pit of Revelation 9:1-12 holds a unique type of demon. It is also the home of the beast who makes war against the two witnesses (Revelation 11:7-8). At the beginning of the millennial kingdom, the bottomless pit is the place where Satan is bound (Revelation 20:1-3). At the end of the thousand years, Satan is released and promptly leads an unsuccessful revolt against God (Revelation 20:7-10).
The bottomless pit may be associated with a place called Tartarus. This Greek word is translated as “hell” and is used only once in Scripture, in 2 Peter 2:4. It refers to the place where “angels who sinned” are reserved in chains of darkness for judgment. The NIV says these angels in Tartarus are held in “gloomy dungeons.” These same angels are also mentioned in Jude 6 as the angels who “abandoned their own home” (cf. Genesis 6:2).
If Tartarus is the same as the Abyss, then the inhabitants of the bottomless pit are the same angels who sinned and left their first habitation. God uses the bottomless pit as a holding place for the most evil of angels, including Satan himself and those who tried and failed before the Flood to thwart God’s plan to bring the Seed of the woman into the world (Genesis 3:15). The inhabitants of the Abyss are released for a very short time during the last three and a half years of the tribulation to fulfill God’s purpose, namely, to torment the wicked (Revelation 9:5). These prisoners of the bottomless pit hate humanity and seek to destroy them, but God controls their terror and limits their power." from the article: What is the bottomless pit (Revelation 9:1-12)?
