We know that the events surrounding the end times, as described in the Bible, will include a powerful deception (Matthew 24:24). Recently, interest has been rising in the theory that this deception...
I have long been fascinated by the undeniable existence of very advanced ancient technology on every continent of our planet. To say that primitive man created these structures that exist thousands of years later does not hold up. After studying examples of this advanced technology and its origins, I proposed years ago that fallen angels used this advanced technology to deceive mankind and turn them from God. Advanced technology could be used to imitate the powers of God by providing light, energy, and military superiority thus serving to deceive mankind and causing them to believe theses entities were gods themselves. Despite this technology these early civilizations have all fallen and only their structures remain. Even today we must be ever vigilant against deception and the "evolution" of modern society. Our technology today has given us a very soft and comfortable life, as well as very immoral and decadent entertainment. We must be on guard against being lulled into believing that aliens brought this technology in the past, it only serves to open the door to this same deception being used against us today.
It is my opinion that aliens are just another disguise used by the enemy; Satan and his minions. L.A. Marzulli and Tom Horn have each written a number of books that discuss the alien deception and its relationship to Christianity and end time prophecies. As society in general comes to a "boiling" point, with the mass animal deaths, weather disasters, blood red waters, increased violence and wars, we seem to be approaching all that Revelation promises. UFO sightings, as well as spiritually "demonic" encounters, seem to be on the rise. Considering all that is happening in the world today, we need to be strong and sure of our faith in our Redeemer, Yeshua.
Gary Bates from creation ministries international addresses this question on aliens in his DVD entitled "Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind" (also look up aliens on creation.com). His research has shown that alien occurrences described are really deceptions from the satanic world. As scripture describes Satan can come across as an angel of light, or whatever, to deceive all and sundry. If you think about it, this universe is very large. So to drive a space ship at the speed of light would take 100,000 light years to cross just our Milky Way galaxy. That is a lot of fuel. Time and an unattainable speed! Early humankind were quite intelligent-just ponder the pyramids, statues on Easter island, Noah building a massive ark without power tools, Adam naming all the animals brought to him by God, tower of Babel etc. Our accumulated knowledge over thousands of years has allowed us to build TVs, jet planes, pcs etc. Nonetheless, the early folk were quite intelligent, more than we give them credit for.
The Bible nor history supports or corroborates alien involvement in the participation in the that lead to the Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. This the last time in scripture that an "end time" event will be mentioned or addressed for there will not be anymore. End times as used in scripture has no relevance to historical events occurring after the first century. It is an Old Testament "judgement language term" that meant the coming of eminent judgement by God. The last time that God pronounced eminent judgement upon a nation is foretold in the book of Daniel and unveiled in the entire book of Revelation against Jerusalem first and secondly the Roman Empire in the West. The last time God pronounced eminent judgement against the whole earth and it's inhabitants (because of sinful humanity was during the time of Noah and the flood and He promised to never do it again. Remember the rainbow. Also up to now science has not found any hard and fast evidence for the existence of aliens and the matter is still under investigation. Having said that it is doubtful that they were around in 70 AD.
