This is one subject that has brought a lot of persecution and excommunication our way but it one that needs to be spoken out about. For some reason that defies all logic the current church leadership has gotten together and decided that we are the only form of natural life to be found in this entire universe and have therefore established a doctrine that states that we are the only physical form of life and all indications or reports of other life has to be demonic deceptions. Meaning the demonic hoards are pretending to be aliens because no alien life can exist. By extension any that suggest the existence of other natural life in the universe are consorting with demons.
There is no real scriptural support given for this doctrine, the doctrine itself is basically nothing more than a declaration promoted by those who think they are something and enforced by peer pressure and any who do not promote it are declared enemies of their church and disbarred from fellowship.
So the real question is, what does the scriptures actually have to say about this subject if anything. Well one thing that is obvious from the start of any search is that there is nowhere in any scripture anything found that indicates that we are all there is and that there is no others. The there is no such thing as aliens doctrine is based on nothing, Absolutely nothing ! But there is a lot of scripture that does point to other life in the heaven that is not descended from Adam.
Yes there are demons or devils, but that is one subject, then there is aliens as in other natural life not of our home planet, another subject altogether. Yes demons can masquerade as aliens just as they pretend to be angels of light and just as they pretend to be the spirit of prophecy. That is what they do, they deceive and lie. We all know that. But again that is another subject ! Yes there is a lot of mention of spiritual beings with spiritual bodies, that is what angels and demons consist of but we are looking at any mention or indication of other beings with natural or flesh bodies. Other creatures that are natural to our physical realms that we exist in. In this regard we get quite a few passing comments that do in fact point to this as a form of common knowledge that seems to be lost to us now.
Take what Jesus said here;
Joh 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
Now logical deduction says that Jesus cannot be referring to other nations on this earth because he had given his disciples the command to go to the ends of the earth and take with them the gospel of salvation to every creature. Why would he give that command and then go do the job himself ? So if he was going to another flock that was not of this earth then to whom did he go ?
Now the question is, did the disciples also have this understanding as well, apparently so !
Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Mar 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
Now the indication there is that at the time of the gathering of the saints it will be from all parts of this earth but also from all parts of the heavens. Now what is he going to be gathering from the heavens, well it will not be the angels because they are going to be the ones doing the gathering and it is not going to be demons because they are the ones in revolt and opposing him anyway. So what is left ? Obviously it can only be the other hosts of heaven and obviously these hosts cannot be spiritual beings or they would be gathering themselves, they would not need the angels to collect them would they. That means they have to be natural or corporal beings. Those who have placed their faith in Christ in the other folds that Jesus spoke of.
So who are these other hosts of heaven, the word Host is defined in the Hebrew dictionary definition below.
From H6633; a mass of persons (or figurative things), especially regularly organized for war (an army); by implication a campaign, literally or figuratively (specifically hardship, worship): - appointed time, (+) army, (+) battle, company, host, service, soldiers, waiting upon, war (-fare).
So of course the next question is who are these other hosts and where are they first mentioned, well they are first mentioned right there in the creation account of Genesis.
Gen 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
Gen 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
Gen 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Gen 2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
This is talking about the creation of our universe, the heavens and the earth. The heavens and the earth were completed and all the host of them, we are lumped together with all the host of them, we are a part of that host. One third of which fell including us.
Well we need some form of confirmation of that so how about this;
Neh 9:6 Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
Well you need an intelligence to worship God so obviously we are not the only intelligence in existence are we. A distinction is drawn between the heavens and the heaven of the heavens which indicates a distinction between the natural and spiritual realms.
So again the question arises as to just how close to us in likeness are these other hosts and again an answer can be found in the book of Genesis.
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Now these sons of God were not another tribe of humans. All humans came from Adam and Eve and the list of who begot who as found in Genesis chapter five and chapter ten explains very well and accounts very well for the generations of the human race in the beginning. The information is all there and the family tree is easy to trace out. Noah was himself from the line of Seth the third child of Adam.
Regardless these other beings called the sons of God were not descended from Adam and therefore not human but at the same time they were capable of cross breeding with humans even if their offspring was noticeably different. That means they had to be natural physical beings, not spiritual. Where they came from is not as important as the fact that they were not from here. And keep in mind that one tribe of humans breeding with another tribe of humans is not going to create the conditions that brought about the flood.
This leads to another question, did God leave us any warnings in the scriptures regarding these other hosts scattered throughout the heavens that we need to pay attention to ?
Indeed he did !
The warning is found in the ten commandments in the area concerning idol worship.
Deu 4:16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
Deu 4:17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,
Deu 4:18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:
Deu 4:19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
The command is not to worship these other hosts or planetary bodies no matter how great we may think they are. But what is also interesting there is that God is talking about all nations under the whole heaven, not just all the nations of this earth.
There is also a future warning as well of an event that will probably be fulfilled very soon.
Isa 24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
Isa 24:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.
Isa 24:22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.
Here we see cooperation between what are called the hosts of high ones and the kings of this earth. Obviously they are doing something together that results in the human kings and these high ones getting thrown into the same prison together. These high ones are not demons, the kings of this earth have been making deal with demons the whole time so there is nothing new there, but this is looking at something that will take place during the opening of the sixth seal as indicated by the verse associated with the passage stating that the earth will be rocking on its access. So perhaps if we look further into the scriptures we may be able to get some idea of what is exactly the crime that gets committed here.
I think it comes from here;
Dan 11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
Dan 11:39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
I think that the kings of this earth will be honouring these hosts of high ones and placing them in positions of authority over other humans. Giving these aliens their own little kingdoms here on earth with their own peasant populations to rule over and exploit.
Now from scripture I have shown that alien life is not only probable but warned about and that there is going to be an interaction between them and us in the future and that there has also be an interaction in the past as well. To denie this is to claim that the scriptures do not tell what they say and if a doctrine pushes scripture aside so as to stand on its own without scriptural support then that doctrine should be considered in error and marked as deception.
Let the wolves push their doctrine and wallow in their self importance but let those that trust their God and who honour the scriptures as the words of God take heed of the warnings and put their trust in him to see them through what is obviously coming upon this earth.
