Could an alien deception be part of the end times? – This is not a bad question to ask and so it is asked at a popular site for such questions. However, the answer given is not Biblical. In fact, the answer is such a clever confusion, it could have been written by the forces of confusion–and confusion does not come from God.
The promoters of the Science Fiction Church are scattered throughout the media, wherever they might do the most damage–and this answer has all the earmarks of the Sci-Fi bible, not God’s Word.
The article is full of the confusing of demons with fallen angels (there is nowhere in the Bible which states that demons are fallen angels; this is rank speculation which for some reason always seems to lead to the same mistakes–which lead to the construction of a completely different end times than the Bible version.)
In fact, we can know that demons and fallen angels are not the same entities because demons are going about doing evil while the Bible assures us that fallen angels are “in everlasting chains” until judgment day.
“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;”
–2 Peter 2:4
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
However, this hasn’t stopped the Sci-Fi guys from spinning lurid non-Biblical fables about fallen angels and earth women, nephelim, giants, angel-human hybrids and other tales from the mystery of iniquity.
END TIMES ALIEN/UFO/ET DECEPTION
Now, one suspects there will be a UFO/ET/alien deception. Satan and his minions have labored too long and spent too many resources for there not to be. Is it part of the Bible?
No–unless one includes the many Bible verses warning of end times deception.
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.”
But it will all be part of the end times satanic deception of the dragon. To this end, the minions of the dragon have ceaselessly labored to construct a new eschatology to contradict God’s Word.
New World Order Strategy: Aliens Attack, the World Unites! – This is based on various public statements of world leaders. However, one should keep in mind that world leaders are members of the mystery of iniquity and their statements are full of lies and deception.
There will be other reasons for the world to unite (as the Bible says it will do) other than an “alien invasion.”
There could be aliens/ET/UFOs used in the end times deception as a straight-up deception; i.e., the Science-Fiction Church guys love to prattle on about a “coming Alien Messiah.”
Or, the alien deception could be part of a planned distraction/deception which is meant to be seen through while a deeper deception is being prepared.
The dragon is a tricky fellow.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
“Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
–1 Corinthians 15:3-4
