We believe there is a definite connection between angels, demons, and aliens.
Angels are creations of God and have real, physical bodies that look similar to our bodies. In fact, there are numerous times throughout the Bible where angels are mistaken for people. But they are able to manifest attributes that we don't have, such as changing their appearance and appearing and disappearing at will. There are two groups of angels: Holy angels and fallen angels.
Way back, long before God created mankind, there was a rebellion in heaven headed by the Archangel Lucifer. A third of the angels chose to follow him rather than God, so God booted them out of heaven. Often, the terms 'fallen angel' and 'demon' are used interchangeably, but that isn't correct. Demons are entirely different. They don't have physical bodies. They are disembodied spirits.
Okay, so did God create demons?
Not exactly. Demons are disembodied spirits of a deceased Nephilim.
What's a Nephilim?
The Nephilim are the offspring of fallen angels and the daughters of men mentioned in the very controversial Genesis 6 passage. "...And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose" (Genesis 6:1-2).
The word 'daughters' clearly means female children of human parents. The 'daughters of men' were simply women, in other words.
The 'sons of God' refer to an entirely different group from either the 'men' or the 'daughters of men'. The term occurs elsewhere in the Bible and clearly means 'angels' (see Job 1:6).
The term 'sons of God' in Hebrew is 'B'nai Ha Elohim--Sons of Elohim, a term consistently meaning 'angels' throughout the Old Testament. Ancient rabbinical texts and early New Testament translators agreed the term refers to angels. Up until the fifth century A.D., there was no question that the text meant: fallen angels procreating with human women.
Why the controversy? Apparently, it became politically incorrect.
Words to the Wise:
Make a conscious decision to choose God's Way. You can trust that He will stand by those who stand by Him. And remember: God created time so that everything wouldn't happen all at once.
