Christians Cannot Ignore the UFO Phenomenon
The past year has been a weird one indeed, and there is a clear trend. Unfortunately, most Christians choose to ignore spiritual and prophetic events going on around them; they simply have their heads in the sand. One such area that is ignored in the Christian community is the strange reality of UFOs. Strange craft are being seen increasingly by reliable, scientifically inclined witnesses such as pilots and other reputable sources. This recent upswing in activity can be traced to November 2006 when the appearance of a disk shaped craft over the United terminal at Chicago’s busy O’Hare airport was reported by pilots, flight crew, and ground crew. The mainstream media picked up on this weird story in a big way. In June 2007 a huge UFO was seen over the English Channel by British airline flight crew and also widely reported. UFO events in the UK seem to be epidemic, including a sighting seen by many eyewitnesses over Stratford-Upon-Avon. The abduction phenomena is also occurring at a much greater rate now according to academic researcher Dr. David Jacobs of Temple University.
Growing Disclosure Movement
All of this was occurring during a period when European governments, such as the UK’s Ministry of Defense, were starting to more actively promote their official case investigations to the public. Government officials in the U.S. are also beginning to move to disclosure, such as former Arizona Governor Fife Symington publicly admitted that the 1997 Phoenix Lights sighting was unexplained, and his original debunking was simply to keep the public calm. In November 2007 an unprecedented event occurred when 14 former high-ranking military and government officials, including Symington, from seven countries shared evidence from their own UFO experiences and investigations. During this same period Space Shuttle astronaut Dr. Story Musgrave joined the growing ranks of astronauts who have seen publicly announced seeing explained craft and feel there is an otherworldly explanation.
Exopolitics and the New Age
While Christians sleep to this reality, groups such as the Exopolitic movement and the Paradigm Research’s political action committee call for a “disclosure” of truth. However, rather than an open look at the evidence, these and many other groups seek to spin this disclosure into the view that ETs are here for world peace.
Christians need to wake up to the fact UFOs are most likely a highly complex physical manifestation of multidimensional beings referred in ancient texts as fallen angels. Many believers have a very naive understanding of angels as the winged creatures on Christmas ornaments. According to the Bible, angels are powerful beings created by God, capable of manifesting on our physical world in a variety of ways. This manifestation may include the use of physical technology by fallen angels designed to manipulate and deceive. Many good biblical scholars and Christian leaders agree that these beings will very possibly play a role in “the strong delusion” described in the New Testament:
2 Thessalonians 9-11 (emphasis is mine)
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received 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
Beware the Deception
While you may be scoffed and laughed at when discussing this topic with other Christians, as these beings begin to increasingly intrude into our realm, it is possible many will loose faith in God and choose to believe in “extraterrestrials.” It is possible and even likely that these fallen angels will portray themselves in various roles, in a sort of “good cop, bad cop” role (refer to this article). The bottom line is that these beings will deny the divinity of Christ Jesus, so do not be deceived by their machinations.
