Is Ephesians 6:12 speaking about extraterrestrial? Often when we hear the term extraterrestrial most of us perhaps think of little green beings from Mars, this is the characterization that Hollywood has given us over time. However, in the book of Ephesian are we are presented with an entirely different meaning?
Are you saying that the saints will rule from this kingdom of darkness over the earth ? Will there be two kingdoms one in the cosmos and one here ? What about the other worlds?
Sin is not something that we do as human beings. Sin is an extraterrestrial plague which has engulfed our human world, which instigate humans into disobedience towards the universal law of the creator.
The one who practices sin is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the very start. This is why the Son of God was revealed, to destroy the works of the devil.
The devil doesn’t have to practices sin, because sin is the works of the devil; the devil and his extraterrestrial clan are master craftsmen of sin and their whole effort is to use it to foil God’s plan and destroy the human race.
Weymouth New Testament
For ours is not a conflict with mere flesh and blood, but with the despotisms, the empires, the forces that control and govern this dark world--the spiritual hosts of evil arrayed against us in the heavenly warfare.
We must see this as it really is, and not cloth is in religious garments. Extraterrestrial beings, the spiritual hosts of evil, empires, the forces that control and govern this dark world are arrayed against us in the heavenly warfare. They war against all of us from the heavenly places where they exist; they control and govern from there. This dark world is not our human world, but their world, from their world darkness has entered the human world through the plague of SIN.
Wherefore, as by one man, sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
If sin entered the world, it obviously came from outside of this world’s sphere, it is an extraterrestrial invader whose purpose was to spread death, which it has done.
Sin is a designed extraterrestrial tool, designed of the destruction of the human race.
I think you need to read the chapter 3 in Genesis it tells you precisely where sin came from and that was happening here on earth.
Come to think of it there was one extraterrestrial in the Garden of Eden it was Satan. But as we know he was banished to earth Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And therefore I guess you could call him a resident of earth.
Genesis 3 doesn’t tell you precisely where sin came from. It does explain how it got to earth. Did God make sin? If yes, wouldn’t that make God evil?
Read Patriarchs and Prophets chapter 1 where you will find God is not evil as you scandalously suggest. What you seem to not understand is that God created beings with free will. Beings who can choose good or evil.
I didn’t suggest that at all. I’m asking you the question. If sin wasn’t in the garden at creation, then it obviously came or entered our world from outside.
Yes as I said before Satan was from outside and that is where sin was introduced to mankind. When that happened the earth was quarantined from the rest of the universe and will remain so until Christ will return. This is very basic for Adventists but I guess as you are not an Adventist you do not subscribe to Adventist doctrines.
Come to think of it the tree of knowledge of good and evil was in the Garden and therefore sin was ready to be introduced to man when God was considering the Man ready for such a knowledge. This was clearly not seen by God as a good thing to do immediately. Did you ever consider why Adam did not eat of the tree of life?
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Are you saying the tree of knowledge of good and evil was sin? So are you saying God created sin and placed it in the garden?
The reason they did not eat from the tree of life is that the devil doesn’t practices sin. He and is well aware of all the dynamics of it. The devil understood that sin was activate by and through disobedience as we are told; For just as through one man's disobedience the many were made sinners…
Therefore, the quest wasn’t to get them to do what God said that they can freely do, but that which they were told not to.
The LORD God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; 17but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die."…
It somewhat seems to me that they were attacked immediately, that did not have time to survey the for all of its plants; I mean, why not eat from the tree of life? Maybe it was deep in the garden and God did not want them to find it easily.
Gene the Knowledge of Evil is not necessarily Evil As you hopefully know God knows all and therefore also knows evil but God does not apply evil but Satan does. To me, there is a big difference between knowing and using. Clearly, Adam was not ready to know about evil, and in him eating from the tree humanity got the sinful nature because humanity was not ready for the knowledge.
"Extraterrestrial beings" please define what you mean by this and where in the Bible you are getting this. There are all kinds of strange beliefs about these beings. Is your belief and word use Extraterrestrial beings from the Bible or other sources? I am just trying to understand where you are coming from.
