Have you noticed the rapid rise of violence, hatred and division in America and around the world? Have you noticed the marked lawlessness sweeping the globe? Have you given serious consideration to why these things now exist, and what they’re telling us as Christians?
Why have partisan politics become vitriolic, and why the right of a woman to murder her unborn child a fuse to protest…for that right? Why the yearning for death? Why has marital divorce and familial breakup become accepted as commonplace? Why the spiritual blindness and lethargy?
Why is biblical illiteracy at an all-time high in the church? Why is spiritual discernment nearly extinct in the church today? Why are millennial’s confused about what to believe? Why is church leadership always searching for yet another version of the Bible? Why the abandonment of truth?
Here’s why: 1) “because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8); and 2) “The thief [Satan] does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10). As God withdraws His restraint, the spirit of antichrist multiplies.
The violence, division and hatred will increase because ours is the last generation of this age. Jesus promised the world would get much darker in the end-times. Yet, the church sleeps. And please do not believe the multitude of false prophets out there. Believe only God’s written Word.
Surely, things were not like this thirty-five years ago when the world was being entertained by ET–The Extra Terrestrial, who, with his bulbous finger pointing skyward, said, “phone home”. What a seemingly benign way to relieve stresses of an ordinary but complex life…or was it?
Most thought ET cute and entertaining. But I contend that with the onset of ET came a demonic outpouring to begin conditioning the hearts and minds of man. Why–because the time had come for Satan to introduce his deception for the times of the end. But most did not discern it.
How well I remember those days and the criticism I received for speaking against that movie. I watched it and unmistakably saw the evil end-time invasion of Satan being thrust upon a world hungry for anything new, and upon a spiritually sleeping church that sought to be entertained.
With ET, Satan arrived as an “angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14). Invited, the legions of hell marched into millions of homes and billions of hearts and minds of the unsuspecting. The end-time game was now on, and the image of Satan’s seed had returned as prophesied. And Jesus warned of it!
Subsequent to that movie I remember saying what a great opportunity and segue to teaching and preaching the end-times, for this was the beginning of the fulfillment of Jesus’ prophetic Word, warning us that, “as the days of Noah were, so also will the days of the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matt. 24:37). But discernment having fled, the church preferred to be entertained.
The body of Christ must prepare in truth or many will be swept to perdition just as Christ taught. Ignoring Jesus’ end-time teaching, for which the church today is well-known, is very bad. Now is the time to preach and teach, “the testimony of Jesus Christ” for the end-times. Jesus warned that in the tribulation, “many will be offended, will hate and betray one another” (Matt. 24:10).
When man fell to Satan’s deception, God said to Satan, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed” (Gen. 3:15). Satan’s seed is again here as it was in the days of Noah, not necessarily in gigantism form as then, but as alien gods of superior knowledge, not to mention the covert but long-practiced genetic co-mingling of animal and human DNA. That combination is what marked the days of Noah, and those days are now here again.
An end-time alien god giving his allegiance and support to the first, “beast rising up out of the sea” (Rev. 13:1) [from many people] shouldn’t surprise you. Think in terms of the false prophet, “another beast coming up out of the earth, [literally] and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast…performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men” (Rev. 13:11–13).
Now, concerning the first beast, Antichrist: “But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god [the second beast] whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, [again, the second beast] whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain” (Dan. 11:38–39 KJV). [emphasis added] Strong’s H5236 for, “a strange god” translates to a, “foreign or alien god”.
The 1982 movie ET was an announcement event that began conditioning hearts and minds of people globally, preparing them to accept the seed of Satan when it comes in all its deception. As a result most people today are comfortable with the prospect of aliens. The scientific community, and even NASA, speaks favorably of aliens, and leading their approval rating is Pope Francis who said he is willing to baptize aliens into the Roman Catholic Church!
God warned saying, “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (2 Thess. 2:9–10).
Satan, on God’s authority to fulfill His promise of a return to the days of Noah, will release on earth alien beings for which humanity has been conditioned to receive over the last 35+ years. Discoveries and observations out of Antarctica, followed by secretive visits to there by high ranking government dignitaries, seems to indicate a present alien stronghold exists there.
Being one of the few who actually believe the testimony of Christ for the end-times, in the love of Christ I warn you, the pre-tribulation rapture you’ve been taught to believe is just another of Satan’s masterful lies and deceptions. There’s not one Bible verse that says Christ gathers His saints before the tribulation – not one! Yet, church leadership has put that lie upon its people!
As the end-times unfold, alien beings will manifest; they are Satan’s seed who long ago, “were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, [meaning after the flood] when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, [giants] men of renown” (Gen. 6:4), demonic beings in physical bodies.
When these demonic alien beings arrive they will likely say they are our creators who populated the earth from distant worlds. They will indeed have knowledge that surpasses knowledge of the biblically ignorant, for their fathers once dwelt with God in heaven. They will deceptively teach man a false eternal life, and will likely demand a re-reading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And while they do all that, they will even call down fire from heaven as proof of their superiority.
But, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God…By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world” (1 John 4:1–3).
As apostate as the Vatican is, this is one area where it exercises a greater belief in the testimony of Jesus Christ than the evangelical church. The Vatican has erected atop Mt. Graham, Arizona, a large telescope with the acronym L.U.C.I.F.E.R., one of the purposes of which is to watch for what the Vatican calls “an alien savior”.
In modern times, tens of thousands of world-wide reports of people contacted by aliens are similar to the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico UFO incident. But note: 1947 was the same year that the UN recognized the newly reborn State of Israel! Roswell was not a coincidence!
This was planned, a calculated end-time attack of Satan, putting the world on notice that his rule is imminent! Yet, there’s no sign that ninety percent of the church is paying any attention to the end-time signs that Jesus Christ clearly taught for the end of this age.
From my perspective, it’s not surprising that Satan would bring an alien attack on the US, which, from 1947 to this day, is the best friend of the State of Israel. US officials, not being Spirit-led, categorically deny the existence of the Roswell UFO incident, though many hundreds of thousands of like-events subsequently have occurred and were recorded world-wide.
Reflecting on the wickedly sweeping changes I addressed at the top of this Letter, those things are characteristically unique to the works of Satan and his legions of fallen angels, who impose upon spiritually unprepared people his destructive and anti-Christ agendas. The time is coming when we will all be forced to make a decision for or against the very powerful alien deception.
Is your heart, mind and soul converted and born again by faith in Jesus Christ? Does your love and knowledge of, “the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Rev. 1:9) guide what you believe for the end-times? If not, please take a few minutes right now to confess unbelief and sin, and make Jesus Christ the Lord of your heart and life, then study His Word and believe His testimony.
