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.

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. 

THAT IS TRUE,, BUT GOD ALSO IS A CREATOR AND ALSO A DESTROYER, AS EVIDENCE BY SODOM AND GOMORRAH, COUNTLESS TRIBES WONDERING THE DESERT AND FIGHTING AGAINST ISRAEL, ALSO THE GREAT FLOOD WAS A DOOZIE.  

HE HAS THE RIGHT TO DESTROY, SINCE HE CREATED.

LOL   GOD IS NOT EVIL BUT HE DOES HAVE HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENTS..

ASK THE QUEERS FROM SODOM AND GOMORRAH, OR ALL THE PRE DELUVIANS MINUS NOAH AND HIS FAM, THEN THERE IS AGAG WHO WAS CUT UP TO TINY PIECES BY SAMUEL PER GOD'S INSTRUCTION, AND WHO CAN FORGET ALL THE FIRST BORN OF EGYPT. 

I DOUBT GOD DELIGHTS IN KILLING THOSE WHO DESERVE IT, BUT IT IS SAFE TO SAY YOU SHOULD NOT KINDLE HIS WRATH.  VENGEANCE IS HIS.

"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.

Raymond,

The term Extraterrestrial as it pertains to this post, I have defined as, "originating, existing, or occurring outside the earth or its atmosphere; it is Webster’s Dictionary definition.


Ephesians 6:12 describe these as spiritual forces (spiritual wickedness) in the heavens, or high places. Even as spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.


The Darby Bible Translation describe them as the universal lords of this darkness.
The Weymouth New Testament call them the despotisms, the empires, the forces that control and govern this dark world.


If these reside outside of our earthly realm in some other world which is described as this dark world, then they are extraterrestrial.
Jude 1:6 And those Angels who kept not their Principality, but abandoned their own way of life, he has kept to the great Day of Judgment in unseen chains under darkness,


These being are in unseen chains under darkness. The word kept suggest they are being watch as prisoners. Their world is dark, their intellect is dark as they spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
They hate God because in God is no darkness.


This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

They hate humanity because of our potential to become as God.


But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.…


Sin is also extraterrestrial. It is not from earth, it was not in the earth after creation; it entered the earth, but from where?

On the twenty-fourth day of the first month of the year I was standing on the bank of the mighty Tigris River. I looked up and saw someone who was wearing linen clothes and a belt of fine gold. His body shone like a jewel. His face was as bright as a flash of lightning, and his eyes blazed like fire. His arms and legs shone like polished bronze, and his voice sounded like the roar of a great crowd. (Daniel 10:4)

Daniel was standing, he obviously looked up towards the sky seemly as he was approach.  This seems to be clear as he reports, he was the only one who saw the vision. Those who were with me did not see anything, but they were terrified and ran and hid. I was left there alone, watching this amazing vision.

They were terrified of something they heard or saw approaching them, so much so, a normal human reaction, that they ran and hid. But it was Danial who experienced a close encounter.

The church does not speak of this, but it is obvious, the bible is a book about extraterrestrials and their relationship with the human world. Some who seek to bring out the goodness while others seek the destruction on mankind.

Those extraterrestrials that hate humanity were perplexed by man’s creation, they question God’s motives, and ever since have sought our destruction.

What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? 5Yet You have made him a little lower than God…

The universal lords of this darkness are mere fallen angels, but human potential is to be more than an angel.

The extraterrestrial being that Daniel encounter was not of earthly origins.  His body shone like a jewel. His face was as bright as a flash of lightning, and his eyes blazed like fire. His arms and legs shone like polished bronze, and his voice sounded like the roar of a great crowd.
