Should We fear Evil in the Heavens Above Looking DOWN at Us on the Earth Below?

______________________________

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against Principalities, against Powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in HIGH PLACES.

– Ephesians 6:12 King James Version (KJV)

An objective analysis of the terminology this particular New Testament Letter clearly displays means that the author Saint Paul is on Biblical record admitting he is AGAINST, not FOR, these Angelic upper level spiritual forces of ‘wickedness’ (evil). This same passage also appears to be locating the enemy of mankind as being Above their heads, rather than Below their feet.

In addition, one would think the most logical way to defend against these ‘rulers of darkness’ would be to set up celestial strongholds somewhere deep down in the Earth Below (Sheol) where the evil grasp and lustful gazes of any wicked Heavenly forces could not reach them. Let me repeat that again- Heavenly evil…

That’s right, Evil from the Heavens Above and not from the Earth Below. The full implications of this Biblical passage appear to quite  ‘Earth-shattering’ indeed.

While there may be at least some superstitious believers who, on principle, would automatically oppose this sort of Judeo/Christian thinking, the words in Ephesians 6:12 are not ever going to change from ‘Heavenly places’ (obviously located above) or the even more specific ‘high places’, into the more traditional locations of ‘wickedness’ and ‘evil’ deep within the earth below. The specific choice of words in this New Testament passage is indeed quite spiritually unsettling, but there appears to be nothing believers can do about it.

Keep in mind, that over the centuries, more than a few Judeo/Christian theologians have claimed that, instead of the hot, volcanic interior of Earth being the physical archetype for the burning flames of Hell, it was, in fact, the Sun where those condemned to Hell were located (both spiritually and physically). Once again, this may well mean that the phrase ‘spirits of wickedness in HIGH PLACES’ should be taken literally, due to the fact it quite accurately describes how humans perceive the Sun (High Above), around which their home Planet known as Earth (Down Below) continues to revolve.

FINAL NOTE ABOUT THE ALL-SEEING EYE OF THE PYRAMID: The opposite of the ‘high places’ spoken of in Ephesians 6:12 would best be symbolized by the Eye Below the pyramid, not the Eye Above it, way up high in the sky, where only the Angels can ever tread.

The Cornerstone, Part II. Up and Down the Bible

The Stone which the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone.
By the LORD this has been done and it is wonderful in our eyes.

– Psalms 118:22-23

Part II. Up and Down the Bible

Bible
Isaiah 14:13-15


You [Lucifer] said in your heart: “I will scale the heavens, above the stars of God I will set up my throne; I will take my seat on the Mount of Assembly, in the recesses of the North. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High!” 



…Yet down to the nether world you go, to the recesses of the pit

Bible
Isaiah 57:7-9

Upon a high and lofty mountain you made your bed, and there you went up to offer sacrifice. Behind the door and the doorpost you placed your indecent symbol. Deserting me, you spread out your high, wide bed, and of those whose embraces you love you carved the symbol and gazed upon it…


…While you sent your ambassadors far away, down even to the nether world.

 

Bible
Jeremiah 51:25-26


Beware! I am against you, destroying mountain, destroyer of the entire earth, says the LORD; I will stretch forth my hand against you…



…roll you down over the cliffs, and make you a burnt mountain. They will not take from you a cornerstone, or a foundation stone, ruins forever shall you be, says the LORD.

May the LORD God bless you in the name of the Judeo-Christian tradition.
