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?

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens. (Ephesians 6:12)

Now, the KJV  express it this way, it reads

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Even though this may sound like some type of sci-fi movie thriller, it not a movie by any means.

Cosmic powers (principalities), rulers of this darkness or the darkness, evil spiritual forces (spiritual wickedness) in the heavens, or high places as KJV express?

The Webster Dictionary  defines cosmic as;

"of or relating to the cosmos, the extraterrestrial vastness, or the universe in contrast to the earth alone.
"

Cosmic, extraterrestrial powers of darkness,  spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
 
The word extraterrestrial is defined as, "originating, existing, or occurring outside the earth or its atmosphere. "

These
cosmic powers of darkness are evil spiritual forces in the heavens.  Where are these heavens or high places being spoken of; where is this heavenly realm?

These extraterrestrial exist outside the earth, but not in the heaven of heavens where the throne of God is.  They exist in the cosmos as explained in Ephesians, they are cosmic powers, not of light but of darkness. They are spiritual forces of evil.

These beings are not flesh, be spirit being kept in chains of darkness.  They are being kept or watched. Their world is a prison of darkness, their intellect is dark, they can no longer perceive the light of God's glory, and because of this they feed off dark negative energy.

Evey wondered why so much evil? Man's nature is sinful, but evil comes from these extraterrestrials, these spirit forces of evil.

They need negative energy and they must manufacture it by causing pain and suffering, hate and fear in the human world. All of the evils that mankind experience is because of these extraterrestrial beings, these powers of darkness,  spiritual forces of evil.

But soon, the coming Messiah will soon rule the cosmos, and shatter to pieces this dark evil realm and replace it forever.

The prophet Danial gives us a clue to this overthrow. In Daniel 7:18,

But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.
The kingdom is not the kingdom on earth, it is this spiritual kingdom of the forces of evil which now rule over the kingdoms on earth.

The KJV says they shall "take the kingdom" others says, "...But the holy ones of the Most High will receive the kingdom and possess it forever..."

The Messiah will take the kingdom away from these spiritual forces of evil that are in the heavenly realm,  and share it with the saints as shown in Daniel 7:27.

And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

This dominion is the kingdom of God, it is an everlasting kingdom that will rule over the earth,  Flesh and blood will not be in it,  it is a spirit kingdom in under the whole heaven.

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. 

TRUE.  SATAN IS LUCKY I WAS NOT THERE,  I WOULD HAVE NUKED THE IDIOT BEFOR HE GOT TO EVE.

Seems to me you are forgetting how God deals with Satan. Sacrificing his only Begotten Son, not Killing him straight of as we would have our sinful nature, that is the reason why we learn to put on the nature of Christ.  

Elijah,

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.
