God is higher than the devil. Paul referenced the place of God, the third Heaven, in 2 Corinthians 12:2. But, the devil is also currently in the sky. In Ephesians 2:2, he is called “the prince of the power of the air.” The devil was long ago cast out of God’s Heaven. From that time, the devil has been…in the fall (Luke 10:18). Like any fall, there is a downward spiral. It can seem like a slow-motion progression. Rev 12 speaks of a war in the heavens.

“I saw Satan fall like lightning from Heaven.” —Jesus

Let me add, Second Heaven warfare isn’t our realm.

Anyway, the devil and his dark ones lose this battle (12:8). “The fall” is then escalated. Satan is hurled downward (12:9). He comes onto the earth. He is furious. He senses the time slipping away from him (12:12).

Has this happened? Is it yet to happen? I’m not completely sure.

Nevertheless, The devil is/was in the sky. But the Holy One is [always] higher than him.

Now, the devil wants us looking for aliens. But the devil is motivating this search because he is secretly searching for the real Heaven. Knowing where Heaven is, in a spiritual sense, is different than knowing where Heaven is from the Earthly/flesh-bound perspective. Seeing from Earth is different. The Earth realm operates on a different set of rules and abilities than those the devil has known from his place in the air, the spirit. That’s why he is additionally cast down; he’s still falling, he’s still being judged.

And right now he is frantically inspiring humans to develop telescopes. He wants—needs—earth realm eyes searching, looking at, and into, the sky. The devil’s dispensation of looking down, toward humanity and the goings on of Earth is beginning to shift. I believe the devil is preparing for his increased fall. Soon the devil will be looking horizontally and/or upwards. Both of these vantage points will be different because he won’t have as much aerial intel. He will be plagued by his lack of wisdom, and his growing ignorance towards all things heavenly. Heaven is a place the devil is increasingly afraid of. Yes, Heaven is a place the devil was kicked out of. And, in a general sense, Heaven is a place the devil is planning to fight against.

For believers, the spiritual warfare will continue and even intensify. Persecution will very likely increase. Some will even lose their lives. But don’t think, for even a moment, that you should fear this. Instead, press into Jesus. Get free, or stay free, from all sin. And get ready to overcome.

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.
