ALAN writes: Many years ago, when I was a New Ager, living and working with people trying to usher in the Age of Aquarius, they were very attracted to UFOs. Some thought that aliens would come to earth to give us their secret knowledge and save us from destruction. Later, as a reporter, I spent years investigating alien spacecraft reports, some credible, some ridiculous. Now, as we approach the time of the rapture, occultists and other enemies of Jesus will soon be faced with having to explain the disappearance of millions of born again Christians. What better explanation than alien abduction?
When I was in the New Age movement a film called The Day The Earth Stood Still, starring Michael Rennie, was cited by my New Age guru as an example of what could happen. A flying saucer landed and out came Michael Rennie and a monstrous mechanical man called Gort who had limitless powers. The people of earth had to live peacefully together or be destroyed by the aliens. Forty years on, the same idea is getting a reprise; Satan has no new tricks as the old ones work so well. The aliens will allegedly come to carry off and re-educate the troublemakers and malcontents- that’s us, true Bible-believing Christians. With us out of the way the man who will become antichrist will be free to bring peace to earth. Or not. This idea of the real Christians - those troublesome "fundamentalists" - needing to be taken out of the picture so that peace and love can cover the earth (!) is commonly held in New Age quarters. Just ask the people selling crystals at your local psychic fair.
Propaganda to prepare for this staged deception is now gathering pace. Men in Black appearances, UFO reports and stories abound. It’s like the 1960s and 70s all over again. Only this time round I won’t be joining a UFO investigation society as I did last time. I know exactly what “aliens” are – they are demonic beings. Yes, there are strange things going on, but they are not extra-terrestrial. If you want to know what "aliens" - aka demons - look like, take a look at heavy metal rock music album covers. Real demons are depicted. Everything from E.T. to hobgoblins are almost certainly based on real demonic entities.You also see them increasingly in Halloween illustrations and elsewhere. There is a strong satanic influence in both rock music and events like Halloween, of course. Again, I speak from experience having been both a rock group drummer and involved in the occult for years.
People prefer tall stories to the truth, however. I once did an interview and took the picture of an obvious old liar called Alf Burtoo. Alf, a shifty looking old soul, called the paper and said he had an encounter with space beings on the banks of the local canal. Our paper headlined the story: Alf And The Spacemen. It was so ridiculous that I never thought for a minute that anyone would take it seriously. But people love these unearthly tales- and they came no more ridiculous than old Alf's yarn and his astounding claims of how he and his little dog were met by space beings while out for a stroll one night. Alf was needed in the flying saucer for a medical examination, but when they found out how old and decrepit he was they dumped him back out of their UFO onto the canal bank, where he walked off with his dog, straight into an interview with me.
Now, I wrote this story in such a way than no sane person could have regarded it as anything other than a wind-up. However, to my dismay, it was taken up by ufologists and became a classic tale of a real alien encounter. It got into books. When I tried to debunk it, on the grounds of truth and accuracy, I was attacked! Now read this story from raptureready.com about how the saucer folk are coming back again. Incidentally, I do not agree that there is life anywhere but earth or with one or two other things in this story. But basically, I think it is correct.
The Rapture, Aliens & The Great Lie http://www.raptureready.com/
By Carl Worline On November 12, 2010, Universal Pictures will release a new movie entitled Skyline, which deals with alien spacecraft that suck up the humans who look into the bright blue light these spacecraft project, and then vanish. I believe this movie is more than just the product of the wild imaginations of some cleaver science fiction writers who seek nothing more than to entertain the public and win an academy award for themselves for best picture. I believe this movie may very well play an important role in end time prophecy.
Whether or not intelligent life exists on other worlds is irrelevant in this article and I will not debate the issue here. What is significant is that reports of unidentified flying objects has been around since the beginning of history with literally millions of people reporting to have seen them, yet official contact with their occupants has (supposedly) never been established. Our government, as well as governments around the world, have vehemently denied the existence of alien spacecraft. In fact, the vehemence in which governments have denied their existence builds a strong case for an official worldwide cover-up conspiracy, which makes the possibility of the existence of extra terrestrial life even more believable.
The Rapture of the Church is certain to cause a worldwide panic as an unbelieving public scrambles to explain the disappearance of hundreds of millions of people in an instant. We also know that the anti-Christ will be revealed and empowered shortly after the Rapture. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 tells us that the end times antiChrist will tell a lie and that God will send a strong delusion so that all of the unbelievers who are left on the Earth after the Rapture will believe this lie:
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all the powers and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness in them that perish; because they receive 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. That they might be damned who believe not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness".
What is this lie? The Bible doesn’t tell us, but I can certainly make an educated guess. On September 21, 1987, President Ronald Reagan made what I consider to be a very prophetic statement when he told the Forty Second Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations “How quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.” Is it possible this great lie will be that alien beings from another world abducted the millions of people who just vanished.
Chapter 13 of Revelation also tells us that the anti-Christ will tell a lie that will cause the entire world to willingly follow him. I am at a loss to think of any other lie which the anti-Christ could use that would cause the remaining population of the Earth to forget their differences so quickly and unite with him.
On March 16, 1979, a movie about a nuclear accident and related cover-up was released by Columbia Pictures entitled The China Syndrome. That was just 12 days before the Three Mile Island nuclear accident in Pennsylvania. Many dozens of nuclear scientists have since lined up to say that despite the accident at Three Mile Island nuclear power is still safe. Nevertheless, the public has chosen to believe Jane Fonda, Jack Lemmon, and Michael Douglas over the legion of scientists who all have the title “PhD after their name. As a result, the development of nuclear power has all but ceased in the United States as well as many other countries around the world. The power of Hollywood to influence the masses cannot be underestimated and can easily trump the logic and reason of science.
Before I start to sound too condescending I need to confess that many years ago I attended some Star Trek conventions. I know there is no such thing as the Star Ship Enterprise, the Federation of Planets does not exist, and most of the technology that I witnessed on the show was Hollywood illusion and trickery. But still, I saw the characters in real life and even shook hands with some them. For a brief moment the line between reality and fiction seemed to get a bit fuzzy.
The release of a new movie from Hollywood does not, in itself, mean the end of the world is upon us. However, I cannot help but wonder if it is just me, or is there a lot going on in the UFO community all of a sudden that somehow suspiciously suggests that something big is about to happen. For example:
Almost 400 years after it imprisoned Galileo under threat of torture for challenging the view that the Earth was the center of the universe, the Vatican announced that the existence of intelligent extra-terrestrial life may be possible.
The Popes’ astronomer said that he would baptize an alien from another world if it asked him to.
After many decades of silence a group of retired nuclear officers have recently come forward to announce that alien spacecraft visited military installations and disarmed nuclear warheads on intercontinental ballistic missiles.
On September 11, 2010 a UFO forced the closure of an airport in Baotau, Mongolia, for approximately 1 hour while other air traffic was diverted to prevent commercial airliners from crashing into it. On July 7, 2010 the Xiaoshan airport in Hangzhou , China, was closed for approximately 1 hour due to a UFO hovering above it. There have been a total of 8 reports of major UFO sightings in China during a 4 month period.
Astronomers recently announced that they are “100 percent certain” that alien life exists on Earth-like planets.
Theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking, presumably one of the smartest men on the planet, recently felt compelled to declare to the world that he is almost certain that alien life exists in other parts of the universe and that we should avoid contact with such species because it might be devastating to humanity.
The United Nations has an Office of Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA). Recent articles in the media both confirm and deny the existence of an ambassador at this office to be the designated representative who makes first contact with intelligent alien life from another planet.
Maybe all of the events which are now occurring are merely a coincidence and my feeling of being bombarded by a preponderance of suggestions about the potential existence of evil alien life as the cause of the impending Rapture of the Church are unfounded. In less than a month the movie Skyline will be released and millions of moviegoers will witness everyday people being snatched up into alien spacecraft in high definition living color on a wide screen with the most realistic surround sound that our technology can produce. Will this sow the seeds of suggestion in the minds of millions of people around the world? I think so. Is the Rapture closer than most people think? I am absolutely convinced of that.
