Should we Christians BEWARE OF AN ALIEN ATTACK!!!!!!! ??? (UPDATED)


Yes, a Christian is going to inform you about an impending alien attack. But it probably isn’t what you think.

Starting in June, 1947, the modern era of UFO sightings started with flying craft described by a pilot as “saucers” that seemed to skip across water. And then the infamous “Roswell Incident” took place that next month.

But what exactly is a UFO? Are they literally the “flying saucers” glamorized by the pop culture of the 1940s and 1950s? The initials themselves stand for Unidentified Flying Object. This literally means that something is observed travelling through the sky with an undetermined identification of what it specifically is. However, in today’s pop culture terms, a UFO is a craft is termed as one of extra-terrestrial (not from the Earth) origin.

Millions of people have reported seeing these UFOs for many years. Are they crazy? Many used to think so. But I am not so sure that I would disregard those reports as just people who are nuts or even those that just make stuff up. What’s more is that there are of millions of people who have described being abducted (kidnapped) by beings from these UFO craft.

Again, there are those who totally believe without questions that aliens are visiting Earth and kidnapping its inhabitants. And there are those who seem just as crazy to dismiss all of these folks who claim abduction.

I can’t dismiss any of this when people are so adamant and thorough in their description of the events surrounding and directly involved with these incidents. But as a Christian, what is being described is far more disturbing and unsettling than simply hearing “Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!,” “live long and prosper,” from Mr. Spock, “This means something,” from Roy Neary, or even just “Take me to your leader.”

An alarming fact is that many Christians have bought into the idea of extra-terrestrial alien life. But for Born-Again Christians, is this idea truly biblical? The one source that God provided for us to receive knowledge and wisdom from Him is the Holy Bible. A God loving Christian should believe, without question, in the concept of Sola Scriptura – that is, the bible stands alone as a source for living, loving and learning. Christians should believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God. And we Christians should continuously examine ideas in the Light of Scripture and take “every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).”

The point here is not to point out the obvious physical and scientific impossibilities of extra-terrestrial travel, and there are TOO MANY to debate in one lifetime, but to point out that, in trusting the bible, the idea of alien life is incompatible with Scripture.

Let’s start with a basic biblical fact.

The earth is unique. God designed the earth for life:

For thus says the Lord,
who created the heavens
(he is God!),
who formed the earth and made it
(he established it;
he did not create it empty,
he formed it to be inhabited!):
“I am the Lord, and there is no other. - Isaiah 45:18.

The other planets have an entirely different purpose than does the earth because God created them to be that way.

In Genesis 1 we read that God created:
- plants on Day 3
- birds and marine life on Day 5
- land animals on Day 6
- Human beings were also made on Day 6 and were given dominion over the animals.
But where does the Bible discuss the creation of life on the “lights in the expanse of the heavens (Genesis 1:14-15)?” There is no such description because the lights in the expanse were not designed for life. God gave care of the earth to man, but the heavens are the Lord’s:

The heavens are the Lord's heavens,
but the earth he has given to the children of man. - Psalm 115:16

He made the stars, planets, and moons “to divide the day from the night; and ...for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and... for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth (Genesis 1:14–15)”. When we look at what the Bible teaches, extraterrestrial life does not seem reasonably compatible with Scripture.

If alien life were discovered, what would be its significance in the universe? Science fiction movies show many different races of beings who supposedly evolved on other worlds. Although very entertaining, such alien races present a problem. And that problem comes back to the focus of and on Jesus Christ. The hypothetical question thus arises: when aliens sin, can they have their sins forgiven?

The Bible teaches that the first man, Adam, rebelled against God (Genesis 3). As a result, sin and death entered the world. It doesn’t say the world and heavens or even the worlds. It says WORLD. Biblically, this refers to the dominion God has created for man.

Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned - Romans 5:12

Again, the bible speaks in terms of this world by stating “all men.” It doesn’t say all men and animals or all creatures of the universe. It says ALL MEN as in all mankind or human beings. We are all descended from Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:20) and have inherited from them a sin nature.

We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. - Romans 6:6

This is a problem: sin is a barrier that prevents man from being right with God.

but your iniquities have made a separation
between you and your God,
and your sins have hidden his face from you
so that he does not hear. - Isaiah 59:2

But God loves us despite our sin and provided a way to be reconciled with God. Christ is a blood relative of ours since He and we are descended from Adam, all human beings are of “one blood” (Acts 17:26). Furthermore, since Christ is God, His life is of infinite value, and thus, His death can pay for all the sins of all people. That is why ONLY the Lord Himself could be OUR Savior.

Declare and present your case;
let them take counsel together!
Who told this long ago?
Who declared it of old?
Was it not I, the Lord?
And there is no other god besides me,
a righteous God and a Savior;
there is none besides me. - Isaiah 45:21

Therefore, Christ died once for all.

He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself. – Hebrews 7:27

He entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. - Hebrews 9:12

And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. - Hebrews 10:10

God’s plan of redemption is only for human beings, descended from Adam. Christ is called the “last Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45).” Therefore since aliens are not related to Jesus by blood or to us by worldly sin, they have no plan for their salvation. They are not blood relatives of Jesus, so Christ’s blood cannot pay for their sin.

Many wonder if Christ could have gone to the aliens’ planet and lived a sinless life as one of them and then died for them. Could He not then have done the same exact thing for every planet inhabited by aliens? No, for the simple fact that the Bible tells us that Christ died once for all.

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, - 1 Peter 3:18

The bible also tells us that when Christ ascended into heaven, He would be preparing a place for us and return to take us back with Him.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. – John 14:3

From the day His mother gave birth to Him, Jesus is and forever will be both God and man. He was raised from the dead in His glorified human body to live forevermore at the right hand of God the Father (Mark 16:19, Luke 22:69, Acts 2:33, 5:31, 7:56, Romans 8:34, Colossians 3:1). He is definitely not an alien from another planet.

The bible makes it clear that Christ was there in the Trinity at creation (Genesis 1:3, John 1:1-4). And God made the earth unique in His universe. It is here that God placed mankind only on earth when we were created. It is here on the earth that Christ became man, lived a sinless life, died once and for all for our sins, and was resurrected. It is from here that Christ promised to prepare a place for us. And it is from here that Christ went to sit at the right hand of God the Father. It is here that Christ promises to return to gather us up to Him.

Conclusively, Christ in the flesh, as one part of the Holy Trinity, was involved with humankind on Earth alone. Therefore, one of the reasons God created the universe is for this world and its people. There is nothing biblical about God having anything to do with “aliens” or other worlds outside of His creation of those worlds for their purposes to this world.

The arrogance is NOT that man is the only life in the universe. The true arrogance is for us to ascribe to God the linear limitations of what we think of Him and what He is capable of. For even if we proclaim that God can do anything, we base that judgment on our own limited linear understandings of the way things are. Since God’s nature is to be outside of time and space as we understand it (and even beyond), the static laws of science and nature that we understand do NOT apply to His abilities since His abilities are beyond any law of science and nature that we could comprehend.

But then, if it isn’t Gort or Ming the Merciless, what’s going on?

We can’t simply just say something is not happening, especially with the evidence and testimony of millions. If all of these “alien encounters” and the like are happening, the question is, “If they aren’t extra-terrestrial in origin, then exactly what are they?”

For thousands of years people have been aware of celestial beings “from above” who have appeared to them in the skies, descend to the earth, and even involve themselves with mankind. A few of which:
- Bring an esoteric knowledge to mankind
- Involve sexual interests (experimentation, reproduction)
- Abductions
- Interact with mankind via supernatural ways (ESP, telekinetics, telepathy, etc)

In ancient times these beings were known as angels, fallen angels, demons, gods, spirits, etc. But with our advancements in technology in recent years, which have increased our understanding and awareness of our universe, along with the notions of air and space travel, it is through a modern understanding that the current generations of man have attempted to understand these beings and their agendas... even in the context of pop culture and science fiction. And to limit our understanding to only a modern perspective is to disregard thousands of years of information, evidence, and experience in place of a mere few decades of tainted comprehension.

Jacques Vallee is a world renowned Ufologist and researcher of the occult for over 35 years - and has addressed the UN on the UFO phenomenon. He is the inspiration behind the French scientist, Claude LaCombe, in the movie, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” In his book, ‘Messengers of Deception’ he describes “…an impressive parallel between UFO occupants and the popular conception of demons.” And in his book ‘Confrontations’ he writes, “the medical examinations to which abductees are said to be subjected, often accompanied by sadistic sexual manipulation, is reminiscent of medieval tales of encounters with demons.” He also made this statement, “I believe that when we speak of UFO sightings as instances of space visitations we are looking at the phenomenon on the wrong level. We are not dealing with successive waves of visitations from space, we are dealing with a control system.” And he states, “UFOs are the means through which man’s concepts are being rearranged. They are engaging in a world wide enterprise of subliminal seduction.” He also made the statement, “UFOs are real but they are not physical. They are messengers of deception.”

Those educated in demonology & the occult (both ancient and contemporary) who have examined the behavior patterns of these beings, consistently identify them as fallen angels/demons. If you are lacking knowledge in these areas, then the parallels in behavior and historically aligned facts, and therefore the identities of these beings, may not be so evident to you. Take a glimpse at what such experts have discovered:
Superhuman Intelligence
Probably the most commonly known characteristic of these beings is their advanced knowledge in many areas (i.e.: technology, psychic principles, and physics). The word “demon” in Greek comes from the root word meaning ‘knowledge’ or ‘intelligence’ meaning that demons have access to knowledge and information denied to ordinary mortals.
Telekinesis, Telepathy & Poltergeisting
UFO abductees and those who have encountered these beings have consistently reported these three abilities being manifested. These are also three of the most commonly known traits of demons – as described by theologians, occultists, psychics, ghost-hunters, & ufologists alike. Telekinesis is the ability to manipulate a physical object with physical contact with the object. Telepathy is basically communication without spoken word or other physical means of communication. A poltergeist is a “spirit” that focuses its repeated “haunting” on one person or physical object.
This is obviously a well-known characteristic of demons/fallen angels but not many are aware of the latest discoveries in this area concerning the so-called “aliens”. It has been recently discovered that high-end night vision apparatuses can see the infrared signatures given off by these UFOs and beings, even if invisible to the naked human eye. This physical record has been very well documented over the last few years.
Interest in Human Sexuality
One thing that has been highly publicized is the sexual interest these beings often take in the reproductive systems of those they abduct. This is a striking parallel to that which is described in the book of Genesis.
When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God (angels) saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose… The Nephilim (giants born by the sons of God and the human women they impregnated) were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. – Genesis 6:1-4
Also, in the Apocrypha book of Enoch (which is quoted by Peter and Jude in the New Testament and is in the Ethiopian canonized Bible today), we read about fallen angels lusting after women and descending to impregnate them.
Further, occult & Satan worship (both past and present) is rich with accounts of such behavior being manifested by the demonic spirits the practitioners work with. This is one of the well-known pillars of demonic/fallen angel worship known to people throughout the world and throughout history.
Thought-Planting, Mind Control, & Possession
The scriptures speak of such experiences being attributed to the work of demons (Matthew 4, 8; Luke 8). Further, millions of modern occultists, parapsychologists, & demonologists are well aware of the fact that these demonic beings are known to plant thoughts, control the minds of their victims, & even possess them. What is interesting is that the testimonies of tens of thousands of UFO/alien abductees and contactees have experienced the EXACT SAME phenomena, and in the same ways. This is beyond obvious.
Known To Be Liars
Those who have claimed extensive contact with these beings such as Whitley Strieber, recurring UFO “contactees,” and alleged clandestine governmental agencies have repeatedly reported how these beings are known to lie and deceive almost compulsively. Notably this is also known to be one of the main characteristics of the beings in the “demonic realm”. Scriptures closely associate fallen angels and/or demons with the creation and perpetuation of lies – and therefore of being of the very essence of lies.
Engaged in Controlling Direction of Mankind
The famous Whitley Strieber, author of the best selling book ‘Communion’ and a repeat “abductee” said, “after the communion experiences I decided it might be a good idea to accept the idea of the Devil just in case that’s what I saw. If you look closely at the world you see the workings of evil in the world. There seems to be a sort of machinery behind it that is far beyond just the accident of human life”. These are compelling words considering;
1) That he isn’t making it up and really has been in contact with these beings extensively over a long period of time
2) This man is a self-described agnostic and yet his views perfectly line up with that of the Biblical message that speaks of the demonic realm controlling the affairs of mankind from behind the scenes.
They Have Been Spotted Warring In The Air
These beings have been spotted hundreds of times, in ancient times and modern, warring overhead in the atmosphere, as if there were two opposing groups. This is extremely interesting because the Bible speaks about “Principalities”, angels, and demonic beings warring in the heavenly realms and/or in the “air” (Ephesians 6:12). One example is when Daniel prayed for 21 days and eventually an angel showed up and told him he would have been there sooner but the Prince/Angel of Persia resisted him for 21 days (Daniel 10). Also, those who host UFO safaris with high-end night vision equipment, have frequently reported that these entities they view were warring in the sky above them.

Throughout time and geographic locale it has been found that these entities often times had close ties with spiritual belief systems and political systems. There is much evidence showing that these beings in times past played, and in times to come will play, significant roles in the affairs of mankind.

- UFO researcher John Weldon said, “How creditable is it to think that literally thousands of genuine extraterrestrials would fly millions of light years simply to teach new age philosophy, deny Christianity, and support the occult? And why would the entities actually possess and inhabit people just like demons do if they were really advanced extraterrestrials?”
- Based on over 40 years of research, famed occult researcher Dave Hunt said, “They seem to be preparing us, psychologically setting us up for some ultimate delusion that is too horrible even to imagine as yet”. Note: this lines up with the Biblical prophecies of the demonic realm creating a grand deception in the “end times”

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).

Some people believe these “aliens” found our planet in the course of intergalactic, or even extragalactic, “space exploration”. A problem with this hypothesis is laid out in three points below:
1. It is universally understood by the world’s major religions and the occult, alike, that demons/fallen angels have been here as long as mankind - and even before. The historical records from every continent and culture throughout time overwhelmingly verify this to be a consensus.
2. Thousands of ancient cave drawings, sculptures, journal entries, and paintings from every continent on earth, and dating back thousands of years, have been discovered which conclusively prove the ancients had experiences with these UFOs and “aliens” just as we have today. Recordings of UFOs and ‘aliens’ have been found crudely painted in ancient cave murals, cut into Egyptian stones, mentioned in the journals of ancients such as Alexander the Great, and even noted in Christopher Columbus’ ship log.
3. The descriptions and characteristics of these so-called “alien” beings align almost perfectly with that of demons/fallen angels.

The conclusion of the above three points could not be clearer:
i. Ancients and contemporaries alike have known of demons/fallen angels being here since before the creation of mankind.
ii. Ancients and contemporaries alike have known of so-called “aliens"
iii. The behavior and characteristics of the two groups – demons/fallen angels & “aliens” are known to be practically identical
iv. “Aliens” ARE demons/fallen angels.

"There seems to be no evidence yet that any of these craft or beings originate from outer space." -Gordon Creighton, Official 1992 Flying Saucer Review Policy Statement

Try as one may, there is no substantial evidence revealing that these beings originate from “outer space.” But it just doesn’t reason that these are beings from another planet when they have;
1) Shown a propensity to deceive & lie to those they communicate with
2) Support known occult principles that have existed for thousands of years
3) Deny true, biblical Christianity
4) Mimic sexual behavior reminiscent of the fallen angels in Genesis 6 and in the book of Enoch
5) Been reported to parallel a plethora of other demonic methods and known agendas such as mind control, intense mental torture, possession, manipulation, and even murder

By all accounts these are the fallen angels and/or demons spoken of in the scriptures. The evidence is overwhelming and the proof extremely compelling.

So, if those who hold expert-level knowledge in the relevant areas agree (Christian and other theologians; occultologists; psychologists; and world-class level ufologists) that these are demons/fallen angels, the following has to be overwhelmingly obvious:
If all cultures are aware of beings known as demons/fallen angels
All cultures are aware of beings that have come to be known as “aliens”
The behavior and characteristics of both groups are identical
Why blindly disregard the idea that “aliens” are demons/fallen angels and instead choose to adopt a hypothesis involving a group of beings we have never verified even exist (intergalactic “aliens”). Doing so is foolish and is the epitome of ignorance and truly presumptuousness to overlook a known group of beings who share the exact same methods, characteristics, and traits – and whom are also known to dwell in a dimension of earth and the immediate surrounding areas.

Now, the question must be begged as to why this is happening and why it would be important to Christians.

Our society has been inundated with an explosion in pop-culture of many things “extra terrestrial.”

From H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” to “Star Trek” to “Star Wars” to “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” to “The X-Files” to “Independence Day” to the reboot of “V,” Science Fiction has become very mainstream and its fans are not thought of as just geeky wackos in strange clothing anymore. Even the American icon Superman is an alien from the planet Krypton. And for the most part, with a few exceptions, benevolence is a theme regarding aliens in science fiction. Therefore, it is natural for secular society to regard the possibility of extra-terrestrials as a way to enlightenment and peace.

Two examples in modern movies showing the deceptiveness of “aliens” are “Signs” and “The Fourth Kind.” “Signs” certainly showed the creatures as demonic looking and had quite a few “Biblical” interpretations from Holy Water to the wood of a tree being used to defeat them. Even though “The Fourth Kind” was a work of pure fiction, the demonic elements and aspects regarding the torment of abductees is quite evident. The speech of the recorded “alien” language is given as Sumerian. In both movies, attribution to extra-terrestrial involvement is only really hinted at and never confirmed.

However, the majority of entertainment media regarding “aliens” has been on the order of “Men in Black” where extra-terrestrials live and work among us or have our well-being as their motis operandi as in “2001:A Space Odyssey” or “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” Or even as comic foil like that of “My Favorite Martian” or “Mork and Mindy.”

Furthermore, most of secular society believes that Christians’ attitudes will be like those of Joseph, the Jake Busey character in “Contact.” But a true God fearing Christian does not answer the unknown with violence but will let evidence in the Light of Scripture speak for itself. And even Sagan, in the novelization, brings to light evidence that there is a Creator.

And when you couple the movie goers’ attitude regarding “aliens” with the following mainstream news articles, it should really cause a Christian to focus of obeying the greatest commandment by fulfilling the Great Commission:

“Photo in the News: Alien Appears in Duck X-Ray?” by Blake de Pastino, Tuesday, 30 May 2006

“Proof We're Not Alone? Judge for Yourself” By DAVID SCHOETZ, Friday, 30 May 2008

Those could be considered tongue-in-cheek, but here’s one that should catch your attention:

“Former Air Force members: Aliens concerned about nuclear weapons on earth”, Monday, 27 September 2010

That article shows that secular ideal of benevolent extra-terrestrials looking out for us and leading us to peace. And now a rather sobering news article to make you do a double take:

“UN prepares for 'first contact' with alien life” By Steve Connor, Monday, 27 September 2010

That’s right! The United Nations is now joining the delusions.

These so called “aliens” that will be contacted through the UN will be legitimized as factual extra-terrestrials without one ounce of skepticism from the “unofficial” world government and its member nations.

So, if “aliens” ever do contact or make themselves “known” to the Earth, there will be even more souls lost to the pop-culture cult of alien worship. Groups like the Raeliens and Scientologists will presume to be validated and Christians will have an even harder time in spreading the Gospel without the true knowledge of who these beings really are.

And just what is the agenda of the demons/fallen angels?

If Satan and demons are actually behind the “alien” and “UFO” activities, How would he use those actions to deceive people into trusting him?

Scripture repeatedly mentions Satan being the father of lies and that he can also disguise himself as an angel of light. The bible also mentions those who follow him, whether human or otherwise, that can appear as beings of lights as well. – John 8; 2 Thessalonians 2; 2 Corinthians 11

And in the disguise of “enlightened” extraterrestrials, Satan and his demons now look to deceive, attack and destroy those who follow and worship God. – 1 Peter 5; 2 Corinthians 12

And because there are those who are not Christians or do not worship the God of the Bible, Satan and his demons will take actions to deceive the world. – 2 Corinthians 4

And once the secular world is won over, it will be easier for Satan to conduct his war by combating the holy angels… even though he will lose. – Revelation 12:4-9

As long as he can keep the truth from the world about God, he will fight and deceive. The more lives he can keep from being saved by Christ, he will fight and deceive. The reason for the deception of “UFOs” and “aliens?”

Satan’s goal is to keep our focus off of God and to try and deny Him glory through our salvation through Jesus Christ. – Isaiah 14

“But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.” – 2 Corinthians 11:3

And I am afraid that people will welcome the “Reticulans,” “Nordics” and “Reptilians” as benign superior being who seemingly want to show us a better “way” when in fact they are minions of Satan trying to usurp the Glory of God!

Consider it a very real thing that this can and will happen as Jesus said in Luke 17:26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.” Those is the “days of Noah” were warned in many ways from God about the judgment to come yet they became so involved in their own lives – eating, drinking and focusing on marrying and giving away in marriage – that they were unprepared for that judgment. Also, since the nephilum and other paranormal activities described in Genesis 6 were in the “days of Noah.”

I invite you to watch the following video by L.A. Marzulli for further evidence:

So yes, Christians, beware of an alien attack. More importantly, prepare for what it really is by studying the scriptures, praying and spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. And if you are not a Christian, please, please find a Christian and ask about the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, who has died for your sins and paid the price that is owed by you.

Praise God for His Son, Jesus. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Light in all of this and I, for one, am humbled, blessed and grateful for His Glorious Gift of Grace!
