Such a fitting comparison! The tragic irony is that when that movie came out it was patently ridiculous to think something like that could happen. Now because of the delusion at work, there are multitudes of people who would believe it and in fact many Bible-believing and awake Christians suspect that people will indeed fall prey to a similar once-unthinkable development literally involving aliens. God sure knew what kind of conditions we would face and did everything He could to warn us. But even knowing what He said, I wake up every day and feel this profound sense of having woken up in Bazarro world, where for most people, like the Bible said, what is wrong has become right, and what is right has become wrong, and everything runs counter to logic. I was a hospice nurse and the feeling of helplessness that comes with seeing someone pass beyond the point of no return, never gets any easier to take. I can imagine that even as we remain and continue sounding the alarms, the Lord hears a rising crescendo from His saints, “How much longer, Lord?” I know He hears it from me every day and I get the indication from my own readers that He is hearing it from them too. God help us all to remain vigilantly engaged in the spiritual resistance to this evil until He removes us and the Restrainer. Even knowing what I know, I can hardly begin to fathom what it would be like (and will be like) without that restraint.

Almost the whole town was replaced by the invaders before…well, you will have to see the movie—I don’t want to spoil it for you.
The storyline was a grand scheme of delusion and deception. You wanted to shout at the big screen for the people to recognize what was going on. You are being set up for falling victim to the body snatchers! But, the course of the storyline could not be changed. It was inevitable…
