For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but . . . against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Eph 6:12
___Satan is at war with God and with us. He does not want people to believe God's word. Satan is "the father of lies" (John 8:44). The Bible tells us that during later times there will be deceiving spirits (lying and/or misleading demons; Satan’s evil helpers) and false miracles. Spirits are polymorphs (something that can take on any shape) and could easily appear to look like aliens. Therefore, we should not be surprised that Satan and his demons have led some people to believe that there are aliens in the universe.
___Furthermore, some people have even been tricked into believing that God didn’t create mankind, but that mankind was "planted" on earth thousands of years ago by aliens. Stories have been circling that these people may someday even try to explain the Rapture (the future time when millions of true Christians will instantly be taken to heaven) as being a result of aliens coming to "harvest" their crop of humans! Pretty silly, huh?
___ While it is possible that there is natural life on other planets, it is not logical to believe that there is intelligent natural life on other planets. That is, we would not expect any non-supernatural beings on other planets that are capable of making choices between doing what is right and what is wrong/sinful. Why?
___With just a few simple Bible verses, you can figure it out for yourself. God made the earth to be lived on (Is 45:18) and created mankind to live on it (Ps 115:16). "God so loved the world" (not the worlds) that he sent His only Son to die for us and cleanse us of our sins so that we would be made worthy to live with the Lord in heaven (John 3:16). Jesus will not suffer and die over and over again on different planets for the sins of different alien civilizations (Heb 9:25-26, Rom 6:9). Jesus died as a one-time sacrifice for us--His beloved earthly believers (1 Pet 3:18-20). 1

1 Tim 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
2 Thes 2:9-10 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
Ps 81:9 You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not bow down to an alien god.

Is 45:18 For this is what the LORD says--he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited . . .

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Heb 9:25-26 Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own.

Rom 6:9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.
1 Pet 3:18-20 For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God . . .
