NEWS BRIEF 2: "State of 'Independence': Record Pace", by Steve Jones, USA TODAY, July 5-7, 1996, Page 2A. "'Independence Day' is causing pandemonium at movie theaters -- both on screen and off. The alien-invasion thriller, which stars Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum, is on its way to the biggest opening weekend ever, having taken in $28.2 million through Wednesday. ... The film was already packing theaters at all hours of the night.... If it maintains its current pace, 'Independence Day' ... could top $70 million through Sunday. That would smash the five-day opening weekend record of $52.3 million set by 'Terminator 2' on a similar July 4 weekend in 1991. 'It'll be the biggest opening ever', says John Krier of Exhibitor Relations ..."
No doubt about it, Americans are truly in love with all things alien and UFO. And no wonder, for we have been fed a steady diet since 1938, with tremendous emphasis on them since World War II. People love to be titillated, and nothing excites quite so much as aliens from another world. Since World War II, alien movies have shown aliens to be hostile in some films and friendly in others. 'E.T.' is a good example of showing aliens as friendly beings that just seem to have our best interests at heart.
While most people believe Aliens are just harmless entertainment fare, New Age adherents are taking them very, very seriously. Further, they are claiming that Aliens do exist, and are attempting to help lead us Earthlings into the new, higher levels of consciousness that will allow The Christ to appear. If you do not believe me, just walk into any New Age bookstore, and peruse the many volumes on Aliens and UFO's. Or, if you surf the Net, type New Age into a Search Engine. Then, scroll down the many listings, noting how many times Aliens or UFO's are referenced.
But, why would New Agers be so excited and enthused about Aliens and UFO's? The answer will both enlighten and surprise you. Stand by for 'the Rest of the News'.
Let us pause our examination of this UFO/Alien phenomenon for a few moments as we examine the time frame in which we are living, and the applicable Biblical framework. We have already demonstrated that we are living in the Last Days of time, the time which will see the appearance of Anti-Christ, the Great Tribulation, and the Second Return of Jesus Christ. And, we have already demonstrated that THE hallmark characteristic of the End of the Age is prophesied to be unparalleled deception. Let us examine this prophesied deception.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 -- In this section of Scripture, Paul addresses the misconception among the church at Thessalonica that the Day of the Lord has already occurred. Paul emphatically states, "Let no one deceive...you". Jesus stated the same warning against deception in Matthew 24:4; He has just been asked by His disciples what THE sign of the End of the Age would be. Jesus gave them many more signs than just one, but His first response was, "Be careful that no one misleads you, deceiving you and leading you into error". Jesus repeats this warning twice more, in verses 11 and 24. In verse 24, Jesus adds that "false Christs and false prophets will arise...and will show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, the very elect" (God's chosen ones). In other words, the End Time deception will be unparalleled; it will be accompanied by truly extraordinary signs and wonders. We are not to be deceived. Truly, unparalleled spiritual deception is THE hallmark characteristic of the End Times.
No one can understand the times in which we live, nor can anyone understand the New World Order, unless they understand Biblical prophecy and doctrine.
Now let us return to our Scripture passage in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition."
This is the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians. We have spent considerable time exposing the great and unparalleled apostasy in which the majority of Christian denominations are participating today. We are at this point in world history today, fulfilling this part of this prophecy. Paul continues, "...and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, ..." Of course, this man of lawlessness is the Biblical Anti-Christ, as predicted in Daniel 9:27 and confirmed by Jesus in Matthew 24:15.
The major point which we want you to grasp from this passage is that the end result of this unparalleled deception will be the appearance of Anti-Christ. This is such a critical point, I want to repeat it: The planned end result of this tremendous program of deception is belief in the Anti-Christ, by the vast majority of people living on the earth.
Paul continues, verse 9, " The coming of the lawless one, [the antichrist] is through the activity and working of Satan..." This verse tells us that the source of this End Time delusion will be Satan. Make no mistake about it, Satan's supernatural power will produce the most incredible deception the world will have ever witnessed. This deception will seem so incredible, people's minds will literally be blown away. At this point, we must remind our listeners that Satan and his angels, also known as demons, are capable of transforming themselves into human and non-human forms so as to deceive people. As Paul stated so eloquently, "..Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light." Keep this fact in mind as we study UFO's and Aliens.
Now back to Paul's revelations.
"... and will be attended with great power and with all sorts of pretended miracles and signs and delusive marvels.. all of them lying wonders -- And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing because they did not welcome the Truth, but refused to love it that they might be saved." The only people who will be deceived will be the unsaved; this truth ties in perfectly with Jesus' assertion in Matthew 24:24, where He says that the Elect, God's chosen people, would not be deceived. This deception of the unsaved takes on tremendous significance because of the next verse, "Therefore, God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false". This very frightening verse reveals that God Himself gets involved at this point, deliberately hardening the hearts and minds of those people who have rejected the Truth of the Gospel. If this is your situation, you must resist the Salvation call of the Holy Spirit no longer. Turn now to Jesus Christ, while this world is still in the Age of Grace, before God sends this tremendously powerful delusion upon the unbelieving world.
Finally, Paul reveals the final intention of this strong delusion, sent by God, "In order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in the Truth, but instead took pleasure in unrighteousness." This strong deception will be part of God's Judgment upon the wicked.
Let us now examine this phenomenal buildup of UFO's and Aliens. Aliens are depicted in movies, TV shows, and science fiction novels as:
`This is a true movie, not a romance. It's part of a CONDITIONING PROCESS TO PREPARE US FOR THE ARRIVAL OF ALIEN BEINGS.' `The movie is a vehicle...It invites the audience to be less afraid of the so-called para-normal. And what better place to start than with the children?'...Everything is being done through the children..."(1)
Everything is being done through our children, and has been for over 20 years. Thus, the first generation to be so conditioned are now having children, who are also being conditioned. What is the purpose? Remember that the Movie and TV industries are openly hostile to Christianity and are very obviously New Age. Also remember that the #1 objective of the New Age is to successfully stage the appearance of Anti-Christ.
WHEN THE ANTI-CHRIST STAGES HIS APPEARANCE, HE WILL CLAIM TO BE AN ASCENDED MASTER FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION, I.E., AN ALIEN BEING. HE IS JUST AS FRIENDLY AS THOSE ALIENS YOU HAVE BEEN SEEING ON TV AND MOVIES. HE JUST HAS OUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART AND WANTS TO LEAD THE WORLD INTO A NEW, PEACEFUL EXISTENCE.
New Age leaders believe people will be much more inclined to accept the claims of Anti-Christ if they have been first conditioned to believe in the existence of friendly alien beings. At this point, we need to stop once again to examine relevant Biblical passages.
* 1 John 4:1, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God." This statement, in Verse 2, states in the positive, that "every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh..", but it also carries the negative connotation as well. We can also accurately state that such spirits "seek to sever Him" from being God. This is precisely what the False Cults, especially the New Age Religion, is attempting to do.
Notice that the Apostle John does not question whether spirits actually exist; he knows demons exist.. John is saying, "Test the spirits [which will arise], to see if they are of God." Notice also that the time frame context of this passage is the Age of Anti-Christ; these spirits will be denying that Jesus Christ actually became a man and has come in the flesh; indeed, they will be seeking to sever the historical, fleshly Jesus from the Divine Jesus Who was and is God. This is precisely what this UFO-Alien deception is attempting to do.
Now, consider another applicable Scripture, from Jesus:
* Matthew 7:18-20, "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit nor can a bad tree bear good fruit...Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits."
Let us examine the fruits of the UFO's by examining the accounts of those people which have been contacted by them. An excellent source is a French scientist, Jacques Vallee, in his book, "Messengers Of Deception: UFO Contacts and Cults". Mr. Vallee is a world-renowned scientist. He brings a non-Christian scientist's empirical thinking to this study.
Let us first examine the subjects which UFO's are teaching the people with whom they have contacted, whom he calls "Contactees".
All these practices are classic occultism! Further, as Christian author, David Lewis states in his book, UFO: End Time Delusion , "Without exception, every person claiming an [Alien] contact...had one thing in common. Each had a prior connection to metaphysical activity or cults. Some had been in devil worship, witchcraft, psychic phenomena, New Age, channeling...Those involved in direct contact with UFO aliens already had a connection to the dark side of the supernatural world." Thus, people today who have given themselves over to Satanic activities in some degree are the ones who are being used to deceive people further into believing in UFO's and aliens. Then, Lewis adds this comforting statement, "..no Christian has ever had a direct encounter with an alleged E.T." (p. 15-16). Thus, God is already protecting His Elect from this Satanic deception. Praise His Holy Name!!
Now, let us examine the stated goals of UFO's and do so in a way in which they are compared to the printed goals of the New Age Movement seeking to establish the New World Order.
1. NWO: Abolish all established Government
UFO: Abolish democracy in favor of dictatorship (p. 103, 113).
2. NWO: All religion must be abolished.
UFO: All religion must be abolished. (p. 93).
3. NWO: Establish One-World Government;
UFO: Establish a single world government, a Utopian Benevolent Dictatorship. (p. 113)
4. NWO: All world's religions are equal and will one day be combined into one.
UFO: All world's religions are equal. (p. 121)
Thus, the goals of UFO's match very well the goals of the New World Order. Further, UFO Aliens are teaching their contactees concepts which, if carried out, would fulfill last days' Biblical prophecy.
However, we believe the world has seen nothing yet. Consider again Biblical teaching about Anti-Christ's kingdom.
* Revelation 13:13, He performs great signs (startling miracles)...because of the miracles which he is allowed to perform...he deceives those who inhabit the earth commanding them to erect a statue in the likeness of the beast..."
These supernatural or seemingly supernatural miracles will lead men directly to the worship of Anti-Christ. This is precisely the planned result of these UFO's and Aliens.
The shocking reality is that Satan has been manipulating world events to achieve his One-World Government, Economy, and Religion through Secret Societies, Communism, Nazism, the New Age, and UFO's. The final merger into the New World Order is almost complete. UFO Aliens and Space ships are nothing more than demons which the Holy Spirit has allowed in this final age to physically manifest themselves in our realm.
And, make no mistake about the fact that the vast majority of the world's peoples are ready to be deceived. Christian author, David Lewis, states in his book, UFO: End-Time Delusion, that a Christian would "have a hard time getting [the idea of demons] across to an average, non-religious person, and to a certain extent, even to some religious persons. Most people in Christian circles...have very little consciousness of any supernatural type of activity."
This concept might shock anyone who has grown up in a family which takes the Bible literally. However, Dr. Lewis is correct that most people today, including many who consider themselves Christian, have no understanding about the reality of demons. And this has been Satan's plan from the beginning. Consider the concrete steps which Satan has carried out among the peoples of the world who were formerly fundamentally Christian, which have brought them to such a point of Biblical ignorance.
Now, the time has come, the Aliens say, for them to intervene again in world history. This time, they will intervene to save man from himself: from his wars, hatreds, spiritual illiteracy, and his environmental damage. These Aliens will accomplish all this by raising up a man who will be imbued with a special level of consciousness, who can lead the world into that same level of consciousness. Of course, this man will be Maitreya the Christ, the Anti-Christ.
Do not be deceived. As Cooper stated, in his book, Behold A Pale Horse, p. 177, "[New World Order Planners] have plans to bring about things like earthquakes, war, the Messiah, an extraterrestrial landing, and economic collapse. They might bring about all of these things just to make sure it does work...The Illuminati has all the bases covered..."The demons of Satan's army will soon physically manifest themselves as Aliens, arriving in armadas of space ships which we have heretofore called UFO's. The plan calls for them to suddenly appear at many places on Earth simultaneously. Some will appear at the White House to confer with the President; some will appear at the United Nations; other aliens will appear at key governmental buildings all over the globe. Aliens will appear in some people's homes or on their front yards. The world's peoples will literally be shocked out of their minds. This is the Plan. This may occur before the worldwide Rapture of the Church; we must be prepared to deal wisely with this planned phenomenon.
Finally, let us examine pertinent passages which may speak to this UFO/Alien plan.
Revelation, Chapter 9, speaks of demons which are released from the bottomless pit of Hell, called the Abyss. Resembling locusts to the Apostle John, they will stream over the earth to afflict and torment unsaved people. Their leader is called Abaddon or Apollyon. Incredibly, the New Age writings refer to these beings constantly, by these names, as being "enlightened" leaders of the New Age.
In Revelation 16:13-16, we see three spirits of demons which come out of the mouth of Anti-Christ; they perform such great signs and wonders that they deceive the rulers of the earth. This is precisely the part of the Plan which Aliens are to perform. They will especially deceive the Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, and Queens, of the governments throughout the world. Everywhere the message will be the same. "We have come to help lead our Earth brothers into a new level of consciousness of which Maitreya the Christ is speaking." Aliens and UFO's will literally hover over and around Maitreya as he is staging his appearance. This is the Plan.
What will be the reaction of the vast majority of the peoples of the world? They will be absolutely astounded beyond words or imagination. Since their minds have already rejected the concept of the physical existence of demons, and have been conditioned to accept as reality anything which they can observe through their physical senses, they will accept these Aliens and their incredible claims. Alien conditioning through books, magazines, TV, movies, and even the trash magazines of the Enquirer variety, will have taken hold. People will believe and allow themselves to be lead away into spiritual error. They will accept the claims of Maitreya the Christ, the Anti-Christ, and will be doomed forever. Those who have given themselves over to the occultic practice of meditation whereby they have communed with their 'guiding spirits' will be predisposed to believe. Likewise, people who have given themselves over to occultic hypnosis, during which they have been preprogrammed to believe, will be deceived. People who have filled their minds with Science-fiction novels will be predisposed to believe. And all mankind will believe because they are without the Truth of Jesus Christ. Upon all such peoples, the deception will fall, to permanently set their fallacy.
Biblical prophecy will have been fulfilled. The Anti-Christ will deceive the entire unsaved population of the world. He will proceed to confirm the peace treaty with Israel and the Great Tribulation will begin.
Do not be deceived. The hour is late, indeed. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use this knowledge many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
God bless you, and may He maintain a "Hedge of Protection" around you and your family.
The sword is coming, and coming both quickly and with enormous power. But, most people, including most Christians, do not see it coming. Will you be a "Watchman On The Wall" with us? (Ezekiel 3:17-19, God's most solemn warning)
