Are aliens and UFOs real?

Hello E,

Thank you for contacting BibleAsk.

Concerning aliens and UFOs, we can presume that all unexplained sightings originate from one of two sources: the “natural” or the “supernatural.” If the source is something in the natural it can be explained by scientists or other people responsible for the occurrence (ex. the military).

If no physical explanation can be found for the unexplained phenomenon, then we must assume we are dealing with the “supernatural” or spiritual realm. And all “supernatural” occurrences come from two sources: God or Satan.

The Bible teaches that God created other worlds (Hebrew 1:2; Hebrew 11:3; Job 1:6) beside our planet. But these other worlds and the creatures or aliens that inhabit them cannot contact Earth because this Earth is quarantined due to sin.

Only good angels (Hebrews 1:14) and evil angels (Revelation 12:9) can manifest their powers to us. Since Satan is the enemy of God, he tries to deceive people by his demons who appear to humans in different forms “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:13,14).

Today’s emphasis on aliens and UFOs could be a disguise for Satan’s activities and demons (1 Timothy 4:1). And the New Age philosophy often incorporates beliefs in UFOs, aliens and witchcraft. These activities are designed to lead people astray from the gospel of Jesus Christ. Often unexplained phenomenon in different areas can be traced to the practice of witchcraft in that area (Galatians 5:19-25).

Further, the Bible tells us that the world will unite under the power of the Antichrist. And in order to achieve an agreement between all the world’s religions, the devil will probably fabricate an extraterrestrial source to convince the masses to unify. We already saw from Eve’s experience with the serpent that demons will use the desire to acquitting superior wisdom to ensnare man. Christ warned us of persons or aliens that produce signs and wonders without biblical support and lead people away from the truth (Revelation 13:5-8). Sadly, people often believe what they see more than what is written in the scriptures.
