Aliens and the End Times Deception

Since 1947, UFO sightings, claims of alien abduction, and "government disclosures" have exploded. “Aliens” have appeared in movies, books, cartoons, video games, TV Series, toys: There have been well over 500 movies featuring extraterrestrials and there are hundreds of TV shows/series about aliens. Untold millions of average people now believe that aliens and UFO's exist. Certainly something is going on, but what?

"Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth..." (Luke 21:26)

End Time Deception

The Bible warns that a powerful deception is going to take place in the last days, as mankind enters the time period Christians know as the Tribulation (Matthew 24:24; 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11). A deception so strong that it will keep most people from believing in Jesus despite the impact of millions of people disappearing during the rapture. It is my belief that the alien and UFO phenomena are part of this great deception.

Many scientists (including non-Christians), experts and theologians have come to the conclusion that the UFO phenomena are simply and precisely demonic in origin. This is because virtually all of the incidence of alien abduction or alien/UFO sightings directly parallel demonic activity as demonstrated in the Bible (e.g. Bible-believing Christians are absent among those who are abducted by aliens, abductions end when the name of Jesus is invoked by the abductee etc.). See: 10 Reasons Why Aliens Are Actually Fallen Angels or Demons

UFOlogist John Keel has said:
"The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon..."[1]
It is obvious the entire UFO/abduction phenomenon is a deception. The big question is, could this be the strong deception of the end times? The Bible doesn’t directly address the issue, but it is certainly plausible, for a variety of reasons.

1. A UFO abduction could be used as an explanation for the Rapture.

Such encounters have been suggested for years, with many believing in them. In fact, recent films such as Jupiter Ascending describe a similar situation. 

Imagine if UFOs were seen in the skies around the world at about the same time as the Rapture, and eighty percent of the population believes in the possibility of extra-terrestrial intelligence, wouldn't this be a powerful form of deception? We know that the rapture of the Church will be accompanied by "...fearful sights and great signs...from heaven" (Lk 21:11). 

While we can only speculate about the nature of these events, one thing is for certain, the appearance of alien ships in the skies of planet Earth would be the greatest shock in the history of mankind.

2. Extra-terrestrial presence could successfully stage the appearance of the Antichrist.

Based on the propaganda of Hollywood, with its movie plot lines driven by the usual premise—the Earth is in grave danger from either an inside or outside threat; alien saviors arrive just in time to help mankind; sometimes they are good…sometimes bad—much of the world is primed now to accept the arrival of an "alien savior". Could this be the Antichrist, who appears to be the savior of the world (Revelation 6:2)?

Nordic Alien
Now, we know the Antichrist will be a man (2 Thess 2:3). However, this does not preclude people believing that he is an alien. In fact, one of the three main alien characters (along with reptilian and a grey) - the “Nordic alien” - looks like a beautiful (almost angelic) human!

According to Wikipedia, the Nordic aliens resembled the people of the Northern European countries and are often described as benevolent beings who have telepathic powers, claim creation of humanity, and are concerned about the Earth's environment or prospects for world peace. This all sounds very much like the Antichrist [the Antichrist will be European (Daniel 9:26), likely claim creation of mankind (2 Thessalonians 2:4), and bring false world peace (Daniel 9:27)].

3. The alien phenomenon MAY have been mentioned in the Book of Revelation:
“Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. (Revelation 16:13)
It’s rather strange that John refers to unclean spirits, who go forth to deceive the rulers of the Earth (Rev. 16:14-19, 21), as frogs. But note that John doesn’t say the three evil spirits ARE three frogs. He says they looked like frogs. Could it be that John was describing 20th and 21st century depictions of aliens as “Little green men” in 1st Century language? Did John see demons, looking like aliens?

The culturally common image of a “gray alien” not only looks much like a frog, but also shares some strange similarities:
  • Both frogs and “gray aliens” have large eyes, and similar facial features. 
  • Both frogs and “gray aliens” have similar hand and finger structure. 
  • Both frogs and “gray aliens” have no distinguishable external genitalia. 
  • Both frogs and “gray aliens” have no hair. 
  • Both frogs and “gray aliens” absorb through their skin. 
  • Both frogs and “gray aliens” reproduce through external reproductive means.

Frogs and “gray aliens” both have large eyes, and similar facial features.

4. Pope Francis and the Vatican are preparing for the arrival of an alien savior.

Many believe that the future False Prophet, who is expected to play a significant role in the upcoming deception, will be the pope in charge of the Roman Catholic Church at the Vatican. It seems that the False Prophet's primary objective during this great deception will be to endorse and promote the Antichrist to the world (Rev. 13:12). Interestingly, Pope Francis and the Vatican are not only expecting an alien savior to arrive shortly from some place outside of Earth, but they are also actively preparing for his arrival and considering the possibility of renouncing their current beliefs.

For centuries, the Vatican has searched for extraterrestrial life using the most advanced telescopes and collected manuscript evidence and relics that could potentially link aliens to Earth's history. Currently, it is monitoring the approaching alien savior with the "L.U.C.I.F.E.R." telescope, the world's most powerful telescope. The Catholic Church plans to embrace this new 'savior' and encourage people of faith to do the same, while reassuring them that it does not go against the teachings of the Bible or the divinity of Jesus Christ. As an example, they claim that Jesus was an alien or a "star child," and that the virgin birth was an early instance of alien abduction.

And there are many more reasons. I didn't even mention how an alien threat, perhaps by the greys and reptilians (which are generally malevolent in nature), would create the need for a world government, or how an alien attack could be used as an explanation for God's judgments during the tribulation (consider especially the humanoid demonic creatures of Revelation Chapters 8 and 9)...

Could It Be the Strong Deception of the End Times?

Again, all of this is merely speculation, and the current UFO phenomenon may be nothing more than a deception; not the strong deception of the end times. However, given that this deception has been very slowly and surely developing generation by generation, and now Satan through Hollywood is conditioning the masses to accept the reality of UFO/alien presence as normal (which is so serious one has to ask, "why"?), this scenario is a very real possibility.

“Sons of God” visit Earth in Noah's day
It is also interesting that the famous alleged crash of an alien spacecraft took place at Roswell, NM in 1947 (sparking the UFO phenomenon) and Israel once more became a nation in 1948. When Israel became a nation again, Satan knew that his time was short and the Lord would be returning soon!

Whatever the case may be, I believe we are witnessing the same basic activity of demon possession that occurred in Noah's day (Genesis 6:2; 4), but in a somewhat varied form under the guise of "UFO's and aliens from another world", and since Jesus said He would return at a time when society resembled “the days of Noah” (Matthew 24:37), we see yet another sign that He’s coming soon.

Do not be deceived. Jesus is coming!
