By now, unless you live on a remote desert island, you will have noticed the recent significant uptick in news reports and feature stories on UFOs and the existence of aliens. The global fascination with “intelligent life” beyond Earth has actually been steadily increasing for more than twenty years. But this year, for some reason, it is reaching a fevered pitch. Catering to this growing appetite of its viewers, the History Channel has devoted nearly one-fourth of its programming to this topic, airing several popular extraterrestrial investigative series such as Ancient Aliens (now in its fourteenth season) and The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch (in its second season). On these, and other similar cable programs, so called “Ancient Astronaut Theorists” are consulted as experts on ancient visitations by extraterrestrial beings to our planet. Their consensus narrative is always the same: Advanced life forms from other worlds who are much more highly evolved and powerful – and therefore intellectually superior to humans – planted the human species on Earth and have regularly appeared over the millennia to influence and shape the course of human history.
In late February, OnePoll conducted a survey on behalf of Blaze TV, a British entertainment channel. This study, taken on the eve of a series of programs dedicated to the topic of extraterrestrials and UFOs, revealed that 56% of participants believe “intelligent life exists beyond our world.” [Based on similar surveys I’ve seen in the US, the number is closer to 65% in this country.] The British study also indicated that 15% believe that aliens will “likely dominate Earth in the next 20 years.” Commenting on the subject, Nick Pope, a journalist and past member of the UK Ministry of Defence’s UFO studies, explained that “2021 is going to be a big year for UFO stories, particularly with the US Department of Defense due to reveal UFO information following the enactment of the Covid-19 Relief Bill, which included a demand that the Director of National Intelligence send Congress a report about UFOs.”
This highly anticipated Pentagon report is scheduled to be released sometime this month (June) and may be available to the public by the time you read this. The report, whether its revelations are low key or of an “earth-shaking” variety, will undoubtedly take the human fascination with extraterrestrial events to the next level. One of the individuals at the forefront of pushing for this information to be made public is Luis Elizondo, a former military intelligence officer and Pentagon whistleblower. He seems to be a genuinely concerned citizen who sees the alien threat to be real and something that needs to be shared with the public. He has appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program several times in the last few months. And, in a recent 60 Minutes interview Elizondo stated, “I’m not telling you…that it doesn’t sound wacky. What I’m telling you, it’s real. The question is, what is it? What are its intentions? What are its capabilities?”
In an interview with The Washington Post, Elizondo explained why the issue in federal government circles had turned from farce to serious inquiry:
“We are now relying on military and intelligence-collection capabilities to collect the data and then try to interpret the data,” he said. “This is not a conversation about how grandma saw some lights in the backyard and then people wind up scratching their heads wondering what it was.” The country can’t wait any longer to take the matter seriously, he said. “We’re seeing these things on a daily basis…The longer we keep a lid on it, the more problematic it becomes. It actually works against our interests to keep a cork on this.”
Increasingly, former government and military officials are going public with their inside knowledge or personal sightings of UFOs and unexplained phenomena. And, last summer, partly in response to the growing concerns, the Defense Department established the “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force.” The alleged mission of the UAPTF according to the Pentagon “is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to US national security.”
In light of these unfolding developments, many people are asking, “What is going on? What is this sudden escalation in UFO activity really all about? Do alien creatures actually exist? If so, where are they from, and what do they hope to accomplish?” These are valid questions that we will address – in summarized fashion – on the following pages.
Years of Conditioning
A very intentional, satanically-inspired conditioning of human beings to accept an extraterrestrial narrative has been gaining momentum since the 1940s and 50s. While this agenda is ancient in its origins, its outward manifestation has accelerated once again since the end of World War II. Beginning around that time numerous one world political and religious organizations, ranging from the United Nations and the World Council of Churches to the Rockefeller Foundation, Freemasonry and the World Federalist Movement, were either first established or became more overt in pursuing their new world order/globalist plans – an agenda which at its core is steeped in interfaithism and the occult (and includes an extraterrestrial component). In the decades that followed, many spin-off groups were formed which would essentially become supporting actors in the quest for a one world political, economic and religious system of government. These groups and the individuals allied with them collectively became known as the One World/New Age movement. Since the 1980s, these anti-Christian voices have become the dominant players in our government, community organizations, schools, judicial system and religious institutions.
Protestant Christian seminaries became significantly penetrated during this time, reducing the number of Christian pastors and leaders who are willing to take a bold stand against these forces. And Rome has been complicit in a major way since at least the early 1960s when the Second Vatican Council (Vatican II) chimed in with their support of the one world ecumenical agenda. By that time, the Catholic Church had become strongly influenced by the secret societies, including Freemasonry and the Jesuit Order. Pope Francis – the first known Jesuit priest to have ascended to the highest position in Roman Catholicism – is fully “on board.” I have documented much of the above history in my books En Route to Global Occupation and The New World Religion, along with the articles I’ve written since 1995, and will therefore not belabor these points here. (You can access this material via our website: www.garykah.org.)
The efforts of determined globalists have been aided by a steady flow of well-crafted propaganda produced by Hollywood, and more recently via social media. I would like to expand, however briefly, on the huge occult influence that Hollywood and the entertainment industry have exerted upon this generation. Over the past fifty years, I conservatively estimate that at least one in every three major films have carried an overarching occult/extraterrestrial message, promoting satanic concepts and practices to the general public. This should not come as a surprise when one considers the abundance of depraved souls embedded in that industry. These films and occult-based television series have gone a long way toward unraveling Western civilization which had been built largely around a Judeo-Christian ethic. The deterioration of Western society is directly proportional to the increased rejection of God and His principles – which have been overtly attacked and undermined by filmmakers who are often dedicated occultists. This has opened the door to unparalleled deception.
In the early 1990s I had the privilege of getting to know a film producer who was also a Christian. As the brother-in-law of a close friend, he had become supportive of my message and was helping to publicize my book. He had at one time been a producer/editor of the hit television series Magnum PI, and had become well connected in Hollywood, to the point where he personally knew many of the big name directors. During one of our deep conversations, he shared something I will never forget. He told me that most of the major directors he knew expected everyone on their creative staff to be involved in practicing at least one form of occult meditation (Transcendental Meditation, Silva Mind Control, Advanced Yoga, Zen Buddhist meditation, etc.). Some of the directors had made this a requirement.
While I was initially stunned by this information, it helped me to better understand why Hollywood was putting out so much occult material – and how filmmakers were obtaining such detailed knowledge about dark spiritual matters. Most Christians with a measure of discernment realize that occult meditative practices – such as those mentioned above – serve as a gateway to the satanic realm. By engaging in these practices, one is opening a forbidden door, creating a portal for satanic beings (demons and fallen angels) to directly influence one’s life; you are essentially inviting (invoking) spirits to come in. These matters are discussed in detail on pages 33-38 of my book The New World Religion, where Scripture passages warning against occult practices are also provided.
Occult meditation, occult rituals (such as those employed in séances, Ouija boards, witchcraft, etc.) and the direct worship of Satan or other spirit beings, all create an opening to the satanic realm. If humans engage in these activities, supernatural satanic manifestations will often result. These may include – but are not limited to – forms of levitation; out of body experiences (known as astral projection or travel); visions from the satanic realm; direct conversations with spirit entities posing as angels, extraterrestrials, deceased humans, patron saints, Mary, etc.; or all-out demon possession.
After the conversation with my producer friend, it occurred to me that much of the material coming out of Hollywood may be little more than a replication of what the directors and their “creative staff” are witnessing or gleaning from “the other side.” Have you ever wondered how humans could have such creative imaginations to come up with the descriptive scenes and narratives in the various extraterrestrial/occult-related motion pictures? I believe these misled, spiritually-deceived individuals are incorporating their satanically revealed insights and visions into their film scripts and special effects. Satan and his fallen angels and demons have been using the entertainment industry for several decades to condition us to embrace the coming global deception.
Not to be outdone, reality television is fascinating audiences with “other-worldly” experiences. In the latest episode of The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch the investigative team, which conducts research on location in Utah, took part in a ritual intended to invoke, or summon, the paranormal beings thought to be responsible for the unexplainable activities occurring at the ranch. Although they believe they are conducting scientific research and may be well-intentioned in getting to the bottom of this mystery, they are playing with fire. It is only a matter of time until something of truly frightful magnitude happens if they continue down this path. The consensus of the team is increasingly moving toward the conclusion that they are dealing with extraterrestrial influences, although they do not necessarily agree on whether the source of power behind the manifestations is of good or evil origin.
After years of researching the occult and having had numerous meetings with former occultists (now Christians) claiming to have experienced direct encounters, I am personally convinced that beings from outside our realm exist and that the frequency of their visible appearances is on the rise. However, unlike secular or new age researchers who are looking into these manifestations, I do not accept the popular notion that these so-called extraterrestrials are more advanced, more highly evolved life forms from other planets. To the contrary, I am convinced that these beings are nothing more than fallen angels, or hybrid creations of theirs, which are taking on the outward appearance of extraterrestrial creatures. As spirit beings operating in a different dimension, they are able to appear physically (step into the physical/visible realm) in whatever form suits their objective. These satanic creatures can take on a variety of appearances ranging from a seemingly innocent child or angel to a famous personage from the past, or even that of an animal or grotesque reptilian-like creature. They are expert manipulators and deceivers who, if extended an invitation, will masquerade in whatever form people are most willing to accept and respond to – and that will best advance their agenda for worldwide human control. The Bible warns us against the deceptive wiles of fallen angels, declaring that “Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14)
The entire argument for the existence of extraterrestrials rises or falls with one’s acceptance or rejection of the theory of Macroevolution. This theory was first laid out in Charles Darwin’s book “On the Origin of Species” in 1859. Soon, other books were written based on Darwin’s suppositions, which eventually led to an entire movement built on theories, and in some cases outright lies.
In order for Satan to launch his final deception, he first had to chip away at our belief that God is the loving, personal, and all-powerful creator of the universe. Slowly but surely, his counterfeit explanation for man’s existence took hold. The introduction and promotion of evolution would eventually – after more than a century – seduce a majority of the world’s inhabitants, including most of the Christian-dominated West. With the lie of evolution now widely accepted as fact, we as humans have been set up for a fall – the greatest deception in human history.
If one embraces the belief in evolution, one must of necessity also believe in the probability that intelligent life is evolving elsewhere in the universe. If here, then why not elsewhere? And, if this is the case, who’s to say that other life forms aren’t more highly evolved, and more advanced, than we humans? Perhaps they’ve been around longer and therefore have had more time to evolve. If so, perhaps they have developed technologies and ways of communicating that we do not yet fully understand. This is why they can interject themselves into our lives, even communicating telepathically…and so the argument goes.
Rather than seeing the unfolding extraterrestrial events for what they really are – satanic manifestations made possible by the increasingly widespread invocations of man – most of humankind, having loved the lies of Satan more than the truth of God our Creator, will unfortunately embrace the coming worldwide delusion.
Lessons from Scripture
Considering that human technologies have advanced exponentially during the course of the last few decades, I believe that some of the unidentified objects witnessed in the skies may be of earthly origin. The creations of man have become increasingly sophisticated, especially in the area of military intelligence where secret technologies are thought to be fifteen to twenty years ahead of the general public’s awareness. Both Russia and China have built up their defense capabilities, pouring significant resources into space technologies in recent years. However, the “dark hole” projects of the CIA and US military intelligence, in my opinion, have kept the United States well ahead of those countries when it comes to secret space technology. While Russian and Chinese sponsored UFO-like creations cannot be ruled out, most man-made hover crafts utilizing advanced/unexplainable technology are more than likely American.
Regardless, mankind’s current capabilities cannot account for all of the UFO sightings recorded over the years. For one thing, human technology was not nearly advanced enough to produce the kind of sightings witnessed by aircraft pilots beginning in World War II. Another consideration which points to nonhuman UFO phenomena is the fact that a very high percentage of recorded sightings have occurred near ancient occult worship sites or where current occult practices are prevalent. This to me indicates a religious component – a response by spiritual beings to human invitations. The further we as a society stray from God and our Christian roots, the greater the opening becomes for the satanic realm to manifest in our midst.
Our generation is not the first to have rejected God and His decrees on a global scale. Genesis chapter six records a very dark epoch of history in which fallen angels violated God’s created order by descending to Earth and having sexual relations with women, resulting in a hybrid (part human/part angel) offspring. These powerful beings, known for their supernatural strength and abilities, were giants and are identified in Scripture as the “Nephilim.” Although the Bible doesn’t say, the fallen angels who sired the Nephilim were probably able to manifest in the human realm because they were invited to do so. The wickedness of man, which had ascended to new heights (or rather, depths), made it possible for these rebellious angels to enter the scene. As a result, life on Earth became so evil that God finally intervened.
Genesis 6:4-7 describes this terrible scene:
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days – and also afterward – when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth – men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air – for I am grieved that I have made them.”
God was very patient, but when sin reached its full measure, He stepped in by sending the Great Flood to cleanse the world of the satanic DNA which had taken hold and corrupted His creation. “But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.” (Genesis 6:8) God spared righteous Noah and his family who had remained obedient to Him, and through them would repopulate Earth.
However, it wasn’t long before mankind once again engaged in occult activity, seeking the things of Satan. Ancient Babylon became the center for man’s post-Flood rebellion. From there the ancient occult-based mystery religions spread across the planet. This time – having promised never again to destroy the world by flood – God chose Abraham and his descendants, the Israelites, to oppose evil and carry forward His standard of righteousness. When they had grown sufficient in number, He brought them out of Egypt and established them as a nation, set apart for His purposes.
By this time the Nephilim had reappeared and were trying to repopulate and take control of Earth. When Moses sent out leaders from among the Israelites to explore the promised land, they were overcome with fear. Upon returning they gave Moses this account:
“We went into the land to which you sent us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit. But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of Anak there. The Amalekites live in the Negev; the Hittites, Jebusites and Amorites live in the hill country; and the Canaanites live near the sea and along the Jordan.” Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” – Numbers 13:27-33
Going against God’s command, the Israelites refused to take the land. As punishment for their disobedience, they would wander in the desert for forty years. Finally, Joshua and Caleb – the only leaders who had trusted God and been willing to obey Him – moved the Israelites into Canaan, God’s promised land for His people. There, Joshua led the Israelites in numerous campaigns to take the land from the giants and their subjects. He was careful to follow God’s exact instructions, engaging in battle only those kings and peoples whom God commanded him to destroy.
At times God commanded the Israelites to wipe out entire cities and regions, killing all of the men, women and children. At first glance such carnage seems ruthless and merciless. However, it makes complete sense if one considers that God was using Israel as His rod of punishment to destroy the Nephilim and their hybrid offspring. I believe God was acting to prevent the DNA of fallen angels from once again permeating the human race. Israel was His instrument to fight this satanically corrupted bloodline.
On at least one occasion God ordered the Israelites to even kill the animals. Apparently, they had been genetically polluted as well. Samuel the prophet, voicing God’s instructions to King Saul, declared,
Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys. – I Samuel 15:3
However, Saul disobeyed God. He spared King Agag and the best of his animals. As a result, God would remove Saul as king of Israel. The Lord said, “I am grieved that I have made Saul king, because he has turned away from me and has not carried out my instructions.” (I Samuel 15:11) Samuel, voicing God’s response to Saul’s plea for forgiveness, proclaimed,
…To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams. For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has rejected you as king. – I Samuel 15:22-23
God’s determination to preserve His created bloodline was – and continues to be – unwavering. After Saul, He would work through His servant David to slay yet another giant, Goliath the Philistine, who came from the city of Gath – which according to Joshua 11:22 was one of the places where a remnant of Anakites (an ancient race of giants) still lived. Israel’s conquests over the enemies of God would continue until they themselves indulged in the mystery religions and were carried into exile as punishment for their disobedience. In the centuries that followed, empires would rise and fall, leaving behind stories of “human-like” giants with super-human abilities. Greek mythology is replete with legends of their “gods” – powerful figures like Heracles (Hercules in Latin), son of Jupiter and the mortal Alcmene. Yet, through it all, God preserved His ordained human bloodline because Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) would come from this line to redeem the fallen human race. God would not permit Satan to stop His plan of salvation for mankind.
A Powerful Delusion
As we near the end of this age, reaching history’s climax – the return of Messiah – God’s prophetic warnings are coming into clearer view. The Lord spoke of perilous times as Satan and his legions make one final attempt to take control, trying to defeat God’s people and eternal plan. Of this time Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Matthew 24:37) History has a way of repeating itself, as people have short memories and forget its lessons. The days ahead will be no exception.
In fact, Jesus describes the time immediately before His return as being unprecedented in the level of wickedness and deception, warning,
For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, “Look, here is the Christ!” or, “There he is!” do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect – if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time. – Matthew 24:21-25
This period of deception will be so overwhelming to those caught off guard that Jesus asks, “…When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8) But what kind of deception could be so convincing and far-reaching that Jesus found it necessary to issue such strong warnings?
Imagine a time one day soon when an enormous flying craft, possibly accompanied by numerous smaller vessels, hovers for an extended period over our nation’s capital or another significant portal. The event is covered live by major news services and aired worldwide. All other issues of the day become unimportant, as this “extraterrestrial” phenomenon suddenly dominates the news cycle. People the world over wonder, what does this mean for the human race? The media immediately put their spin on this visitation, reporting that these advanced beings must be from another part of the universe – proving that we are not alone, and that life exists elsewhere.
Such a scene would certainly produce a narrative advantageous to Satan’s global agenda. If these extraterrestrial forces are deemed to be hostile, it would quickly unite the nations of the world against a common enemy – setting the stage for a crafty figure to “lead” mankind in this satanically contrived sequence of events. On the other hand, if these forces appear to be friendly – communicating a seemingly peaceful message and telling us that they are here to save our planet from inevitable destruction by mankind – the vast majority of people would welcome these superior non-humans and follow their lead. In either scenario, humanity would be manipulated by a false narrative intended to bring us under the control of our greatest adversary – Satan.
The apostle Paul, speaking of the end times, describes an event of unprecedented proportion that will deceive those who’ve rejected the truth of God. Linking this event to the appearance of the “lawless one” (the Antichrist/Beast), Paul writes,
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. – II Thessalonians 2:9-12
This passage describes the final and most potent deception ever unleashed upon man. God, in His sovereignty, chooses to no longer protect humanity by holding back this deception, thereby allowing His disobedient creation to fully experience the culmination of their wickedness – the lie of Satan they have chosen to accept. Having rejected the fact that God created mankind in His own image and placed us on Earth, man sought after a different explanation of his existence – centered on evolution and the quest for other evolved beings from other worlds (who some evolutionists suggest planted humans on Earth). In essence, God gives man what he wants and deserves; but, only for a time.
As Paul clearly stresses in verse 8, the lawless one is no match for the King of Kings:
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. – II Thessalonians 2:8
Thank God for the victory we as believers have in Christ Jesus!
There’s No Defeating God
Man, in his arrogance, believes that he can somehow by-pass God, even denying His existence. In the process he has sought after the forbidden things of the spirit realm, aligning himself with the very enemies of his Creator. There is a dark irony here. Man, who sees himself as “too intelligent” to believe in a personal Creator, instead ends up serving spiritual beings intent on his destruction.
Satan, being the arrogant spiritual creature that he is, seeks to defeat God’s purposes by destroying His creation and if possible, overtaking God Himself. Fortunately, he will not succeed; but he will wreak havoc attempting to do so.
Some have wondered, if one-third of the angels followed the lead of Lucifer (Satan) and turned against God, is it possible that a majority of the remaining angels might rebel and turn against Him as well? I do not believe this will happen. But even if the two-thirds of angels who’ve remained loyal to God decided to abandon Him, He could create ten more angels for each one that defected. He – Yahweh/Jehovah God – holds the keys to creation. He alone is the Ancient of Days and sits on the throne. (Daniel 7:9-22; Isaiah 44:6; Psalms 90:2) There is simply no defeating Him. No powers on Earth or Heaven combined will ever defeat God!
How can we be certain of this? God has foretold His victory throughout Scripture and has the track record to back it up. For example, His prophecies regarding the scattering and regathering of His people Israel have come to pass. His prophecies concerning the rise and fall of specific nations throughout history have been fulfilled exactly as foretold. And, the prophecies describing the first coming of Yeshua the Messiah were all fulfilled in precise detail (some 300 minor, and 100 major prophecies). Why would it be any different for those prophecies concerning Messiah’s second coming and His final victory over the nations – and over Satan and his fallen angels? Answer: It won’t be! God willdefeat the forces of evil and reign supreme!
God does not want His human servants to dwell in fear over what is coming upon the Earth. He wants us to trust and remain confident in Him, resting in the fact that He is sovereign over the affairs of man and the universe, and will have the final say. God will keep His promises – on Earth and through eternity – as He has done in the past.
As we approach the final days of history (life as we know it), it is imperative that we, as believers, walk closely with the Lord and stay in His Word in order to be discerning and remain loyal and steadfast in Him. We will be called upon to endure some difficult circumstances for His sake, but our reward will be great if we stand firm. We will reign with Him forever! (James 1:12; Ephesians 6:10-13; Revelation 3:21; 22:3-5; Daniel 7:18, 27)
If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I urge you to make the decision to do so now. God loves mankind, his greatest creation; this includes you. His perfect will is for all to be saved and none to be lost. (John 3:15-18; 5:24) However, He makes clear that only those who have accepted (believed in) His divine Son, Jesus Christ, will be spared from the punishment of hell and will spend eternity with Him. (Matthew 10:28; II Peter 2:4-10)
In order to secure your eternity with God, you must believe that Jesus is who He says He is and that He paid the penalty for your sins with His death on a cross. Accept His free gift of eternal life which He can offer because He conquered death through His resurrection. Then, with the help of His Holy Spirit, turn from your old ways of living (repent) and follow Him. Take a moment and tell the Lord that you desire to receive Him into your life and ask His Holy Spirit to dwell inside of you and lead you into all truth.
Once you have settled this most important matter, be devoted in your relationship with the Lord. Spend time with Him by reading His Word (the Bible) and talking to Him (praying) daily. As you grow in His grace, He will direct you and open doors showing you how best to serve Him. With Jesus at the helm, your life and eternity are secure in His care. No situation or power of the enemy will be able to separate you from the love of Christ!
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?… No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” —Romans 8:35, 37-39 ■
Behold our God, seated on his throne
Come, let us adore him
Behold our king, nothing can compare…
He will reign forever!
(from the song “Behold Our God” by Bob Kauflin)

2 “How UFO sightings went from joke to national security worry in Washington,” by Michael S. Rosenwald, washingtonpost.com, May 23, 2021, accessed June 3, 2021.
While writing my article I received the following post from Dr. Gregory Reid, a friend who’s been researching and dealing with occult-related matters for many years. It appears we are on the same page. He writes:
If we are on the verge of the “great UFO reveal,” (to coincide with the great reset) it will be part of the last deception. Stand strong in the Word. They are not extraterrestrials. They are extradimensional fallen angels. Many church people will fall away because they are not strong enough in the Word to reject the lie when it comes. Remember that signs in the heavens and lying wonders will be part of the final deception.
Demons vs. Fallen Angels
By Gary Kah
The Bible describes demons and fallen angels using a variety of names in different passages and situations. These range from “devils” and “unclean spirits” (Luke 11:14-26) to “principalities and powers” or “spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12) I personally believe that demons differ from fallen angels in their make-up and in their specific roles. It would require a book to properly cover the distinctions between these wicked spirit beings; I am offering only a brief summary of my conclusions here. I’d like to emphasize that the following thoughts and observations are merely my opinions. They are based on Scripture studies, research on the occult, and personal reflection. They should not be taken as gospel.
When God destroyed the Nephilim in the Great Flood, I believe their spirits lived on and became known as demons. Since the Nephilim were part fallen angel, God could not allow their spirits to be in His presence for eternity in Heaven, but neither did He completely banish them from Earth. Rather, for the remainder of this present age, He has allowed demons to exist as disembodied spirits in the earthly regions. Being spirits that once lived in the bodies of the Nephilim (who were also part human), they are able to occupy (live or reside in) a human body if given the opportunity; this is known as demon possession.
However, the main goal of demons is to tempt, influence and coerce humans to commit acts of wickedness to further the deceptive purposes of Satan. As the Nephilim were the offspring of fallen angels from the satanic realm, their living spirits (demons) serve the Prince of Darkness.
Whatever their exact origin, demons are widely thought to be subservient to a hierarchy of fallen angels who oversee their activity. Nonetheless, they must flee when rebuked in the name of Jesus Christ by His true followers. (A few relevant passages include: Philippians 2:9-11; Matthew 10:1-10; 28:18-20; Mark 3:13-15; 6:7; 9:17-29; 16:15-20; Luke 9:1-6; 10:18-20; Acts 5:16; 8:4-8; 16:16-18; 19:11-17.)
Like demons, fallen angels are evil spirits devoted to the furtherance of Satan’s goals. While they too can manifest, appearing in the physical realm of Earth, I believe their main purpose is to fight against God’s angels in the heavenly realms, trying to establish and defend “strongholds” over peoples, nations and regions of Earth. Although we as humans will never fully understand this kind of warfare while in the flesh, we know from Scripture that it is very real.
When the prophet Daniel requested of God that He reveal the meaning of his dream, the answer did not come right away. It took 21 days for God’s chosen messenger angel (probably Gabriel) to fight through the resistance he encountered from fallen angels before he could reach Daniel with the answer. It wasn’t until Michael, one of God’s most powerful warrior angels, came to his aid, that together they were able to push through and overcome the Prince of Persia – the title used in this passage to describe the fallen angel who had established a stronghold (formidable control) over the region of Persia. (Daniel 10:10-21) *
If we could see the invisible battles currently being fought over our lives, neighborhoods and nations, we would be astonished. The forces of evil who fight against us are determined, but so are God’s holy angels who remain loyal to God and obey His commands. Satan and his fallen angels are empowered and gain dominance over a territory when there is rampant sin and rebellion against God, especially when that rebellion includes occult practices invoking spirits. According to the Bible, evil greatly increases during the end times until Jesus Himself returns to defeat the powers of darkness and to establish His millennial reign. (Revelation 19 and 20)
*According to II Peter 2:4 and Jude 6, some of the fallen angels (I believe those who violated God’s created order in Genesis 6 by having sexual relations with “the daughters of men”) have been taken out of commission. They are already experiencing the direct punishment of God – being held captive in chains, awaiting judgment. As one Bible commentator states,
This does not mean that the sin of other angels (Lucifer and those who followed him in his rebellion against God) is not hateful in God’s sight, for it is. But their sin was not on the same level as the sin recorded in Genesis 6 and thus they are not bound in chains yet.
