I actually had not meant to publish the first in the UFO series until next week, but by one of those functions of WordPress whereby I schedule future posts, and had too many tabs up on my laptop while I was doing it, one got published.
So, why the UFO stuff? Well, because I believe that all UFO phenomenon are supernatural and part of a future deception that will be used by the Antichrist to explain the disappearance of Christians in the Rapture.
The videos on the UFO’s go into a lot of history, and not a whole lot about the Christian perspective on this, so I wanted to let readers know a couple of resources I find legitimate in their Scripture knowledge and the UFO phenomena. Starting with the 5th video, more scripture is applied to all of this and explanations of what it all means.
AlienResistance.org ←That link takes you directly to their UFO and Alien Deception page in which they provide evidence why they are convinced that Aliens are demons perpetrating a deception towards a specific outcome, the significance of which will only come to bear upon those left behind in the time of the rapture.

Our mission is to provide orthodox biblical perspectives on the modern UFO and “alien” phenomenon, exposing proven deceptions, and equipping the church to minister truth and freedom to those currently deceived by experiences and/or strongholds related to now-popular belief systems of aliens actively visiting humanity.
Alien Resistance offers evidences that the widely-reported “alien abduction” phenomenon — while sadly quite real — is in fact a powerfully deceptive spiritual experience. Our research suggests that individuals are not being held captive by authentic biological extra terrestrial beings, but that this belief is rooted in vast levels of occult teaching and outright deception.
We feature personal and testimonial proof that the “alien abduction” experience can be stopped — both while in progress and completely terminated as a life pattern — in the name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ (view testimonies from those who have successfully stopped abductions permanently, and contact us to know more about being set free from the influence of these tormenting entities).
We offer a vast array of articles, videos, dvds, books and public speaking events presenting evidences that people world-wide are being brought into communications with — and often tortured by — deceiving spirits that routinely teach doctrines of devils, false gospels and occultic forms of spirituality to their victims (aka “abductees” and/or “contactees”). On a larger scale, our research suggests that this deception will likely culminate in a globally-believed lie (Biblically, the “strong delusion” referred to in 2 Thess 2:11), setting the stage for the world to embrace the (even now emerging) One-World system under anti-christ, as a solution or response to a perceived alien presence.
We actively oppose, resist, rebut, and fight these deceptive strongholds and entities by presenting these findings, The Word of God, and the truth and salvation offered by God through Jesus Christ to all.
Although there are several known names in “Christian” circles who dabble in this area of research, the one I have found most credible in that he always provides evidence of his claims, and backs it up with scripture, is Dr. Michael Heiser.
Here in the below video, is a good primer (lecture by Heiser) for you if looking at the “question of UFO’s and Aliens have anything to do with faith and spirituality” for the first time and want to do so from a Biblical perspective. Heiser has advanced degrees and goes into a lot of detail, so this is great for those who like to really dig into researching things.
Michael S. Heiser, PhD earned the M.A. and Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004. Before attending the UW-Madison, Mike earned an M.A. in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania (major fields: Ancient Israel and Egyptology). Mike was hired as the Academic Editor of Logos Bible Software shortly after completing his Ph.D. Before joining Logos, Mike spent twelve years teaching biblical studies, history, and biblical languages on the undergraduate level. As Academic Editor for Logos, Mike is responsible for targeting and evaluating potential data projects for scholarly products, overseeing existing academic projects, and participating in creating academic content for the software. Mike’s main research interests are Israelite religion (especially Israel’s divine council), contextualizing biblical theology with Israelite and ancient Near Eastern religion, biblical languages, ancient Semitic languages, textual criticism, comparative philology, and Second Temple period Jewish literature. Mike’s other academic interests include paranormal and occult religions and western esotericism. He is particularly interested in how these worldviews and traditions have historically drawn on biblical and ancient Near Eastern material and in turn influenced biblical interpretation on the popular level. He is best known to popular audiences for his paranormal thriller, “The Facade”, which intertwines many of his interests. A popular guest on Coast to Coast AM, Art Bell says, “Mike is uniquely qualified to discuss the relationship between ancient texts and ufology…”

I will not be doing a lot of commenting or analysis of this stuff, as I have found that followers of this blog come here for the sources of information, and do their own homework on it, which you should do! The rest of the UFO series will resume Saturday, as I have pre-scheduled the rest of Pastor Crone’s series on the New Age to post in the interim. I think that the hour is so late, that it is important to cover these topics. The whole “alien agenda” as a deception, has been in the works for a very long time, and has “evolved” according to society’s advances. Movies from “Close Encounters” to “ET”, to Men In Black were designed to ridicule the idea of the whole alien phenomenon being a spiritual threat. Desensitization in action. A ploy to cause people to believe if there is anything “out there” it is benign and interested in our own good. Nothing could be further from the truth, if these guys are right! These are demonic beings and part of the “Great Delusion” God promised will occur in the end times.
Keep in mind when these guys speak in positive terms “for these supposed benign beings” they are expressing what others believe about them, and what Satan wants you to believe.
It’s all “principalities and powers, and rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places”(Ephesians 6:12).
