Satan's Deception: Space Aliens and UFO's - Part 1
Satan's Deception: Space Aliens and UFO's - Part 1
By Dean T. Olson
On June 24th, 1947 Kenneth Arnold was flying his private plane near Mount Rainier, WA when he reported seeing nine bright objects flying across the face of the mountain. Arnold described the objects as "shaped like saucers…" He described them as flying past the mountain at then unheard of supersonic speeds of 1,200 miles an hour. Arnold claimed that the objects were flying "like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water." Arnold's descriptions were widely reported by the media and led to the coining of the term "flying saucer." Arnold's sighting led to a torrent of other reported sightings, primarily in the U.S, but worldwide as well.
Although unidentified flying objects (UFO's) have been sighted for as long as man has gazed skyward, the sightings in 1947 marked the first post-War sighting in the United States that generated nationwide news coverage. It has been credited with being the first of the modern era of UFO sightings, including numerous reported sightings over the next two to three weeks. Little more than a week later on the evening of July 4th a United Airlines crew sighted nine more disc-like objects over Idaho.
According to New Age teaching UFO's are piloted by superior beings, or extraterrestrial aliens, that come from a more highly evolved civilization. There is a consistent message conveyed in contacts between humans and aliens that is contrary to the teachings of Christianity. The message centers on humans evolving into a higher state like the space visitors. As advanced beings, their role is to help man to evolve into this advanced state. This supports the theory that these aliens are really fallen angels or demons in Satan's employ who will bring a great deception to everyone on earth who rejects God's truth. Their real motive is to deceive mankind.
The huge amount of indoctrination preparing us to accept these alien beings from outer space should tell us that we must be close to the time of that great deception that God said would come upon the whole earth:
So God will send great deception upon them, and they will believe all these lies. Then they will be condemned for not believing the truth and for enjoying the evil they do. As for us, we always thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters loved by the Lord. We are thankful that God chose you to be among the first to experience salvation, a salvation that came through the Spirit who makes you holy and by your belief in the truth. He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. With all these things in mind, dear brothers and sisters, stand firm and keep a strong grip on everything we taught you both in person and by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Father, who loved us and in his special favor gave us everlasting comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and give you strength in every good thing you do and say (2 Thessalonians 2:11-17).
The deception will try those who do not love the truth that Jesus Christ is Lord. The lost will choose to believe the lie that we all can become like god. Remember that Satan's first deception that introduced sin into God's perfect creation convinced Eve that she "will be like God" after eating the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3:5).
The World has been conditioned over the past 70 years to believe in the existence of aliens in UFOs. Recent revelations by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) astronauts expose how pervasive these sightings are. Astronauts Jim Lovell, Ed Mitchell, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Walter Schirra and Scott Carpenter have acknowledged UFO sightings. Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA communications agreed: "When Apollo 11 made the first landing on the sea of Tranquility, only moments before Armstrong stepped down...two UFOs hovered overhead." According to Chatelain, NASA intentionally misrepresented Apollo 11's transmissions on numerous occasions to conceal UFO presence and all Apollo and Gemini flights were followed by visible objects of unknown origin. According to Scott Carpenter, America's first astronaut in space, "At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone, there was a constant surveillance by UFOs" (Wippel, 2012).
These reports are inherently trustworthy because astronauts are experts and highly experienced in spacecraft and spaceflight. Thirteen astronauts have gone on record as having seen UFOs while on space missions. On the Mercury spaceflight of May 15 1963, Astronaut Gordon Cooper saw a green UFO that was also tracked by Australian radar. During the second orbit of the 14 day Gemini 7 flight in December 1965, Astronauts James Lovell and Frank Borman reported sighting a UFO. Gemini flight control thought it was the final stage of their titan booster but Borman and Lovell said they had both the booster and the UFO in sight. During the Mercury 8 flight in 1968, Walter Schirra was the first astronaut to use the code words "Santa Claus" to indicate that UFOs were near his space capsule (Wippel, 2012).
Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin saw lights in or on a crater on the moon and other spacecraft there. They reported "two large objects watching them" during their moon mission of Apollo 11, July 21, 1969. In 1979, Maurice Chatelain confirmed that the code name was used and he confirmed Armstrong's communications on Apollo 11. An amateur radio operator intercepted a March 24 1989 transmission from the US Space Shuttle Discovery. Astronaut John Blaha, a veteran of 5 shuttle missions and time aboard the Russian MIR space station, said: "Houston, this is Discovery. We still have the alien spacecraft under observation."
Two of the premiere academics involved in UFO research were the late American astronomer Dr. Josef Allen Hynek and Dr. Jacques Fabrice Vallée of France. Dr. Hynek was also the consultant to Columbia Pictures and Steven Spielberg on the popular 1977 UFO movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. He made a brief, non-speaking appearance in the film after the aliens disembark from the 'mother ship' at the end of the film. He can be seen, bearded and with pipe in mouth, stepping forward to view the spectacle. Dr. Vallee served as the real-life model for the character Claude Lacombe portrayed by François Truffaut in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Both scientists experienced a slow and gradual shift from skepticism to belief in the phenomena (Whipple, 2012). After examining hundreds of UFO reports over the decades, including some made by credible witnesses including astronomers, pilots, police officers, and military personnel, Hynek concluded that some reports represented genuine empirical observations. In a 1975 paper presented to the Joint Symposium of the American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics in Los Angeles, he wrote,
If you object, I ask you to explain - quantitatively, not qualitatively - the reported phenomena of materialization and dematerialization, of shape changes, of the noiseless hovering in the Earth's gravitational field, accelerations that - for an appreciable mass - require energy sources far beyond present capabilities - even theoretical capabilities, the well-known and often reported E-M (sc. electro-magnetic interference) effect, the psychic effects on percipients, including purported telepathic communications. Dr. Vallee was the first to propose an advanced theory that says unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and related events involve visitations from other "realities" or "dimensions" that coexist separately alongside our own. The interdimensional hypothesis (IDH), also called the extra-dimensional hypothesis (EDH), is an alternative to the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH) (Wippel, 2012). IDH also holds that UFOs are a modern manifestation of a phenomenon that has occurred throughout recorded human history. In prior ages sightings were ascribed to mythological or supernatural creatures. In effect, UFOs are not spacecraft, but rather devices that travel between different realities.
Defending the IDH theory, Dr. Hynek cited the materialization and dematerialization observed by witnesses along with what he called the "poltergeist" phenomenon; after a close encounter some people near those observing the UFO report seeing nothing. Other effects include photographs of UFOs sometimes appear on only one frame of film and the shape of the UFO changes before the witnesses' eyes. Other effects include the puzzling question of telepathic communication; the creatures seem to be at home in earth's gravity and atmosphere; the sudden stillness in the presence of the craft; levitation of cars or persons; and the development by some abductees and witnesses of psychic abilities after an encounter (Wippel, 2012).
These phenomena are certainly real, but their origins are not from outer space. They are demons using demonic deception to further Satan's end time agenda. The ultimate goal of these demonic encounters masquerading as extraterrestrials is to undermine the authority of the Bible and to distract the world from the truths it contains. A secondary motive is to provide a cover story of ET's removing people from earth as an explanation for the Rapture of Christians prior to the 7 year Tribulation period. They will pretend to be looking out for mankind's best interests and many of the biblically uninformed will accept their misleading messages.
The root of this great deception has been planted in human consciousness using the deception of evolution and alien higher life forms that began in earnest with the onset of UFO sightings and encounters with "aliens" in the late 1940's. As mentioned in Chapter Five, these Satanic New Age deceptions explain that certain groups of people, Christians among them, will have to be evacuated by our extraterrestrial "space brothers" because of catastrophic earth changes. The alien rescue of those who are "weak and in need of help" is being pushed by New Ager Thelma Terrell. Terrell goes by her spiritual name, "Tuella," and in her book, Project World Evacuation, she claims to have "channeled" messages from a being who calls himself "Ashtar," leader of an alien confederation. The messages explain the reason for the future disappearance of millions of Christians during the rapture:
...We watch diligently, the threat of a polar shift for the planet in your generation. Such a development would create a planetery situation through which none could survive. This would necessitate an evacuation...
Terrell claims to reveal how this rescue will occur:
There is method and great organization in a detailed plan already near completion for the purpose of removing souls from this planet, in the event of catastrophic events making a rescue necessary...Our rescue ships will be able to come in close enough in the twinkling of an eye to set the lifting beams in operation in a moment. And all over the globe where events warrant it, this will be the method of evacuation. mankind will be lifted, levitated shall we say, by the beams from our smaller ships. These smaller craft will in turn taxi the persons to the larger ships overhead, higher in the atmosphere, where there is ample space and quarters and supplies for millions of people.
In 2 Corinthians 11:14 Paul warns us that Satan masquerades as an angel of light and also remarks that it should not be surprising that his servants appear as servants of righteousness as well. One of their most effective tools of deception is flattery. They tell us what we want to hear and subtly pervert the truth so that it conforms to our own narcissistic and self-serving human philosophies. This is being done on an unprecedented scale in the powerful New Age movement today. One aspect of this deception is the New Age practice of "channeling." Channeling occurs when you open your mind and soul through meditation and relaxation to the influence and direction of non-human beings. These beings claim to be "aliens" or "angels" or "Ascended Masters." Their claim to be angels may be true, but the nature of their advice reveals them to be fallen angels because it conflicts violently and obviously with the saving message of Jesus Christ.
Satan has an agenda which includes a massive amount of deception and a bit of public exposure to pique the interest of a few, yet keeping his agenda in the realm of science fiction for the moment (Graham, 2012). In the meantime scary things are happening around the world including the appearance of ghosts and demons, "space" aliens, Marian apparitions, unexplained animal mutilations, and a rash of mysterious sounds emanating from the sky and the earth and reported from widely dispersed places around the world. These strange occurrences, once isolated and widely separated, are beginning to explode on the world scene. Our planet is moving into chilling, unexplored territory. The earth has been invaded by malevolent, supernatural, other dimensional beings and the battle for men's souls has now moved into our four dimensional space/time continuum (Graham, 2012).
Satan, his horde of fallen angels, and the demons of old are poised on the brink of facilitating the most startling phenomenon the world will ever witness. The Bible says: "Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false," (2 Thess. 2:11). Satan is responsible for the evil which will bring about much of the catastrophic occurrences on planet earth in the last days. The delusion won't be fully revealed until the Church is in Heaven following the Rapture. The precedent of angels appearing in male form to men occurs numerous times in the Bible. They are seen eating and drinking and undoubtedly have access to all human bodily functions.
"That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose…There were giants (nephiyl in the Hebrew or Nephilim) in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." (Genesis 6:2, 4-5).
Part of the reason for the dramatic increase in alien and UFO encounters is that the Rapture of the church is certain to cause a worldwide panic as an unbelieving public scrambles to explain the disappearance of hundreds of millions of people in an instant. We also know that the Antichrist will be revealed and empowered soon after the Rapture. Second Thessalonians 2:9-12 tells us that the Antichrist will tell a lie, and that God will send a strong delusion so that all the unbelievers left on the earth after the Rapture will believe this lie:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all the powers and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness in them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. That they might be damned who believe not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
This great lie will likely be a variation on the theme that alien beings from another world abducted the millions of people who vanished in the Rapture. In a speech to the UN in September, 1987, President Ronald Reagan described the world-unifying effect an alien invasion might precipitate, "I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. An otherworldly existential threat is perhaps the only lie that would cause the remaining population of the earth to forget their differences so quickly and unite with Antichrist.
