A WING OF HORRORS: THE OUTER SPACE DELUSION

The contemporary world is in the midst of a violent cultural swing back toward the pagan beliefs of ancient days.  There is a growing tendency to worship the ancient gods and goddesses.  However, an interesting thing has happened.  These ancient deities have been merged with modern technology.  The spirit world has acquired the hard edge of plastics, alloys, electronics and the computer.  The world of angels and demons has been consolidated with the modern mythology of interstellar travel.  Dark angels and demons are now readily accepted as space travelers.  This deception is preparing the world to receive the most beguiling delegation in history.Except for tiny minority of heady skeptics, philosophical purists, existentialists and radical atheists, virtually everyone agrees that there is a hidden spiritual world that lies just beyond the limits of our physical vision. In growing numbers, people share the common belief that from time to time, the veil is lifted for a brief moment, and certain individuals are allowed a “paranormal” experience.  Such moments are the prime ingredients of a prevalent contemporary fiction peopled with angels, aliens, ghosts, assorted spirits and time travelers from the distant future.  In the last few decades, man has undergone the strange transformation from a mechanistic interpretation of the world to a supernatural one.  Beginning with the 19th century industrial revolution, western society became progressively convinced that advancements in science would bring a better life for all.  It was said that physics, chemistry and better engineering, would soon convey a perfect utopian existence for mankind.  In the mind of man, technology became a savior with fuller, safer living as the goal.  As the world endured the tests of two world wars, the advance of communism and nuclear weapons, world society duly noted that technology could be used for evil as well as good.  Men began to question the existence of God.  They reasoned that if he exists at all, he must be a cold and impersonal figure who doesn’t really care about the human race.  By the late 1950s and early 1960s, intellectuals agreed that God was dead. This being true, it now fell to man himself to create a better future.  What would be the model for that future?  Peculiarly, among intellectuals, the answer turned out to come from a kind of speculative literature known as science fiction.  A fictional tale about a trip to another planet may seem innocent enough, but the stories go far beyond that. Currently, they represent the summation of utopian thought.  A good example of such conjecture is found in a novel written by physicist Arthur C. Clarke.  This man is a physicist and engineer who was involved with the early development of radar.  He made real

contributions to science, theorizing and developing the beginnings of satellite technology.  His fiction, beginning with “Childhood’s End,” written in 1953, depicted a future world in which man’s problems would be solved by the arrival of an extraterrestrial force.  In his narrative, these superhuman beings are discovered to be responsible for the creation of man.  Now, they are returning to check on their work, and prepare man for the next great step in his evolution. Mankind is about to leave it’s childhood stage and become prepared for interplanetary maturity and social perfection.  It turns out that these aliens from outer space are not merely man’s real creators, but the shepherds of his continuing evolution.  Peculiarly, they are described as having leathery skin, bat-like wings and strange reptilian heads with horns – exactly as one might picture a fallen angel or demon.  In Clarke’s story, however, they are the heroes.  It is the story of man’s final generation just prior to a radical transformation of being.  The New Age is about to dawn.  Clarke’s “2001:  A Space Odyssey,” and the concluding books in his series, once again carry out the general theme that earthlings are being coaxed and prodded into new developmental

Arthur C. Clarke began his work as a scientist and theorist in satellite technology.  But by far, his greatest influence has been as a science-fiction novelist.  He consistently visualizes the rebirth of mankind through technological contact with advanced civilizations.  Here, the cover of one of his books includes the symbols of the starship, the monolithic stone of communication and the reborn man.

heights by super intelligent creator overlords.  For Clarke, a super-race has replaced God as creator and nuturer.  The twentieth century up to the present has also witnessed the dramatic development of science fiction motion pictures as a strong cultural force.  Utopian fiction found a real outlet, from the first flickering black and white attempts at Buck Rogers rocketry through “Grade B” UFO potboilers of the 1950s. Certainly, these early attempts at formulating a picture of space travel stimulated the public imagination.  However, they did not become a real social force until the mid 1960s when “2001” was released as a movie.  It swept the cinema screens of the world, daring to ask the question:  If the God of the Bible is dead, are there other forces in the universe who will bring man to immortality?  It’s answer is an emphatic “Yes” … the ancient extraterrestrials have provided a way for him to reach this goal.” From that time until the present, audiences have been treated to a series of thrilling space operas, ranging from Star Trek to Star Wars.  In addition, a host of UFO oriented movies and books have been launched, with themes ranging from the destruction of planet Earth to the abduction of impregnation of Earth women for the creation of a hybrid, alien-human race.  Also, we must not forget E.T., the lovable little turtle without a shell.  He represents the beneficent nature of these intelligent space visitors.  He carries the love and concern of the planets, coupled with the preternatural spirit of physical and societal healing, brought by fate to the children of American suburbia. Like any mystic visionary, he becomes emeshed in the world-gone-mad presence of our self-serving government scientists.  Literally, since World War 2, science fiction has been the dominant form of popular literature on college campuses. The list of authors who have contributed to this myth are legion.  To mention just two or three, one of the most popular has been Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land, featuring a martian that has come to earth with the unlikely name Valentine Michael Smith.  He brings with him a permissive morality, supernatural mental powers and persuasive leadership skills.  Indeed, in messianic fashion, he finally succeeds in revolutionizing Earth as he brings in a peaceful kingdom.  Isaac Azimov, the most prolific of all the science fiction authors, developed the archetype of a race of robots whose superhuman skills and abilities enable the world to reach a utopian reality. His fictional world denies the existence of God, postulating that man’s salvation must ultimately come from contact with other advanced civilizations.  Representative of a host of other writers, Clifford Simak’s sci-fi world regularly invokes the presence of a host of benevolent extraterrestrials.  In the ancient Greek god-from-a-machine tradition, their presence assures that man will always be brought to a propitious resolution.  Often, he brings a single, superhuman individual into the narrative who saves humanity from itself.  Indeed – regardless of the author – science fiction’s most prominent single theme usually revolves around a messiah-like character who saves Earth from some imagined peril.  These difficulties can range from destructive meteorites to evil alien invaders and all stops in between.  Of course, the myriad of books has provided the fodder for an entire genre of public entertainment.  Both of the most popular sci-fi motion pictures incorporate these themes.  Many writers have already detailed the myriad ways in which Star Trek and Star Wars movies have appropriated biblical themes.  They display a host of dark figures who threaten humankind.  These adveraries have a general resemblance to Satan, the fallen angels and the Antichrist.  In the Star Wars mythos, Darth Vader is almost an Antichrist figure, whose power comes from a mythical satanic master on some shadowy plane of reality.  Ultimately, he is defeated by the “good guy.”  Luke Skywalker, whose persona fits that of the messianic hero figure.  He survives numerous physical and spiritual tests, to emerge as the savior of mankind.

SYSTEMATIC DESENSITIZATION

The culture of this world has been literally brainwashed to believe in the real and present existence of extraterrestrial visitors. At first, in 1947, “flying saucers” were a distant and fleeting phenomenon.  In the 1950s, they buzzed airliners and police cars, leaving burned patches on the ground as they allowed fleeting glimpses of “flying saucer” occupants.  In the 1960s, they initiated the phenomenon that was later called “Close Encounters of a “close encounter of the third kind.”  This involved contact with human beings and even abductions.  During the last fifty years or so, these encounters have become progressively more and more bizarre. Several documentary motion pictures have chronicled the more sensational of these encounters.  The Travis Walton story (Fire in the Sky), tells of a man who was literally taken from the presence of his hunting buddies and not returned for several days. Whitley Strieber’s Communion is the account of a strange series of interactions between a writer and his alien guides. They seem to come and go at will, alternately terrorizing and “schooling” him in the finer points of life on a higher spiritual plane.  He believes this is for his own good. Like many others, he too accepts the notion that he is being taken to a higher level of existence.  There are many other books and movies, too numerous to mention, that relate similar stories, but the pattern is always the same. When “ufonauts” make contact with mankind, it is always with some propagandistic motive in mind. Frequently, they tell the contactees that they are here to save the earth from

Mysterious crop symbols are appearing in wheat fields all over the earth, including this peculiar one that appeared in the year 2012. Are these signals from the stars, or imprints left by evil spirits?  Although many say that we’re about to experience contact with intergalactic ambassadors, it’s more likely that we’re seeing patterns inscribed by demonic hordes led by the “prince of the power of the air.”  They constitute nothing more or less than a call to New Age worship.

environmental self-destruction.  Not long ago, they were here saving the earth from nuclear suicide.  Playing on man’s most dominant current fears, they insinuate themselves into the confidence of UFO “believers.”  Often, fears fade, to be replaced by faith and confidence.  The initial, universal reaction to UFO contact is sharp, uncontrolled hysteria.  Literally thousands of stories validate this fact.  The closer one gets to the phenomenon, the greater the fear.  Why not?  A blazing saucer in the night, coupled with the appearance of gnarled, disfigured  and misshapen figures should frighten one out of his wits.  After all, they resemble trolls, gnomes, gargoyles and demons more than the wonderful saviors from outer space that they’re supposed to be.  Sci-fi movies have created hundreds of monsters, ranging from The Thing to Star Wars’ lovable little troll and mystic guru, “Yoda.”  Here’s the key:  Over the years, these monsters have acquired personality. The faithful Spock, the superior yet innocent Data, and the devoted (but very hairy) Chewbacca are monsters who have become endearing characters.  The daffy robots R2D2 and C3PO – the Alphonse and Gaston of robotdom – make mechanical intelligence both plausible and desirable.  Even Star Trek’s really ugly Worf the Klingon, after a time, becomes someone you’d like to have as your next door neighbor (You’d never have any trouble with vandals).  The bottom line:  In clinical psychology, there is a well-known and often used therapy called “systematic desensitization.”  As the name would imply, the object of this technique is to progressively reduce one’s emotional reaction to a given stimulus.  Among other uses, it is employed in those who are crippled by uncontrollable fears.  According to psychotherapist Joseph Wolpe, “In systematic desensitization, the emotional effects of deep muscle relaxation are employed to counteract the anxiety evoked by phobic and allied stimulus situations presented to the patient’s imagination.”  In simple terms, the subject of this process is first given deep muscular relaxation (often through hypnotic suggestion), then subjected to an imaginary fear-producing narrative.  Gradually, the patient’s hysterical reaction is gently guided into submission by the therapist, as he suggests methods of dealing with the fear.  Eventually, even the most horrifying stimuli will fail to produce even a trace of phobic, hysterical or even slightly fearful behavior.  The patient is then considered cured.  Think for a moment, isn’t this exactly what is typified in the UFO phenomenon?  Bit by tiny bit, under very controlled circumstances, the “aliens” have revealed more and more of their repulsive selves in an orchestrated unveiling that is a marvel to behold.  In UFO literature, monstrous aliens have been given gregarious and appealing personalities. What began as fear has been finessed into acceptance, even faith.  In the typical abduction scenario, the ufonauts calm their subjects’ natural fears with soothing talk under some sort of induced paralysis and semi-sleep.  Why don’t we just call it hypnosis?  Under the exact conditions used for systematic desensitization, many abductees finally learn to accept their loathsome captors with amazing, receptive calm.  Behind it all, an astounding program is being unfolded.  Humanity is being groomed to accept horrors from beyond the veil as the next step in the evolutionary progress of mankind.

POWER, SIGNS AND WONDERS 

Since the first century, Bible scholars have known that one day, a fiendish regime of of tremendous power would emerge in a moment of dominant rule.  It’s presence on earth would effect the lives of every man, woman and child on the planet.  At the head of this organization would be a man of notoriety, whose very persona would represent Satan, the ancient dragon.  John called him “Antichrist.”  It will be no small accomplishment for this man to rise to such an all-encompassing position.  We have seen that it is virtually impossible to bring the nations to unity on even the most innocuous question.  How much more difficult it will be to bring together the world’s religions.  Yet, according to the Bible, he does it.  Why will they all give assent to this man – a pseudo-religious super-egotist? The apparent answer is that he has power. Not just political, economic, social or intellectual power, but real power.  The science fiction mentioned earlier envisions just such a man.  It’s stories are replete with accounts of psychokinesis (moving objects with the power of the mind), telepathy (reading the thoughts of others), clairvoyance (remotely viewing distant landscapes)

ALIEN GREY
Alien or demon?  This artists view of Whitley Strieber’s contact shows the typical facial features of a supposed typical “gray” being from outer space.  But the dark almond eyes are actually quite reminiscent of the ancient gods of Mesopotamia.  Their (Strieber calls this one “her”) behavior is far more demon than alien.

and telekinesis (telepathically sending a burst of power). Imagine disarming your opponent with a mental heat beam that turns his gun into a red hot iron.  Naturally, the man who possesses something like this kind of power will soon find himself vaulted into a position of leadership.  In the typical science fiction outline, he is a despot who must be stopped by the forces of righteousness. Furthermore, this sort of fictional figure is usually backed by dark and ancient forces who simply use him as a tool.  One again, we see that there are really no new ideas in the world, for this scenario is precisely the biblical one.  In 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9, the real Antichrist is given a very special title:  “Wicked.”  He is the distillation of all evil.  He is also seen to possess those “science-fictional” attributes: “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders … “ The tyrant of fiction deludes people into believing that because of his wondrous powers, he is a god.  By extension, his fictional subjects believe that since he has such high status, he must be good for the general welfare.  Because they are totally lacking in discriminatory power, their fate is sealed – and so it is in scripture.  The power referred to in the verse of scripture above infers the exercise of force, usually of a physical nature.  Thus, the Antichrist will be able to affect his physical surroundings, probably in a very convincing manner.  Like his fictional predecessors, this false messiah will wield enough power to frighten his opponents into submission.  In scripture, “signs” represent tokens of recognition.  For example, Jesus presented the signs that would have allowed the people to know that he was the real Messiah.  Prior to his coming, the sages of Israel interpreted scripture to read that three signs would validate him.  First, he would cleanse the leper.  Second, he would give sight to the man born blind.  Third, he would cast out the so-called “dumb demon” (that is, a demon who robs one of the power of speech).  Of course, Jesus accomplished all these signs and many more.  By rights, he should have been accepted as Messiah. Certainly, many knew that he was, in fact, the expected redeemer, but rejected him anyway.  Jesus knew this and predicted what would happen when the Antichrist finally comes: “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive” (John 5:43). In this verse of scripture, Jesus says that the Antichrist will come to power on the basis of his own credentials.  A moment’s reflection will reveal that these must be of a supernatural nature. Otherwise, he would never be received as messianic.  Some are expecting a messiah of one sort or another, others an “ascended master.”  On the basis of his “powers,” the Antichrist will be univerally accepted by the new global citizen.  “Lying wonders” mentioned in the above scripture (2 Thessalonians 2) would no doubt include a stream of false occultic “wisdom.”  Given the nature of today’s deception, this could perhaps include messages from extraterrestrial ambassadors or spiritual entities.  These lies might, for example, come in the form of special knowledge that the Antichrist could not have known through natural means. Jesus displayed all of these abilities and more, but his were true spiritual gifts, given that he was fully God and man wrapped up in a coat of flesh that walked among his own creation of the world and man.  The supernatural abilities of Jesus were administered in love, under the will of God and were completely in control.  The Antichrist will have no such restrictions.

THE GRAND DELUSION

The human reception of the Antichrist simply could not come to pass unless a deceptive foundation had been previously laid.  Today’s New Age movement is the visible portion of this groundwork.  It cuts across all cultural and economic boundaries.  The impoverished Mexican farmer,  Hindu beggar, the Chinese laborer, the middle-class European or American, and opulent globalist kingmaker are all equally capable of being assimilated into the movement.  In general, New Agers believe in a coming “quantum leap” or “paradigm shift,” in which revolutionary powers from on high will intercede in the world’s normal affairs.  Overnight, they say, the old world will pass away as the “ascended masters” and ancient astronauts (angels and demons) bring the world to a final “utopian” reality.  Today, they breathlessly await the first signs of this event.  Most certainly, ” … power, and signs and lying wonders …” would characterize this predicted day.  As the apostle Paul puts it in 2 Thessalonians 2:11:  ” “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” Here is the heart of the matter.  Simply stated, before the career of the Antichrist can be successfully launched, a new system of belief must be established on Earth.  Today, that system is fundamentally in place.  It already has credibility and it’s own system of publication.  Many of the world’s leading personalities openly profess a belief in it’s tenets.  One of it’s primary doctrines holds that there must be a “global” citizenry. Ancient national boundaries must be broken. This movement is already quite visible as an article of faith among social and economic planners.  “A lie” is precisely what it should be called.  It’s science-fictional promises of universal peace and brotherhood under a supernaturally empowered leadership are a total fantasy. The myth is specifically designed to cover the advance of the dark, Satanic forces that are about to be released upon an unsuspecting civilization.

THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR

I have attempted to paint a picture of the delusion that is now sweeping the earth.  It pretends to be a benevolent force, backed by the superior wisdom and technology of an ancient civilization from a galaxy far, far away.  It’s language and symbolism is that of the ancient Babylonian, Persian, Egyptian and Graeco-Roman gods.  It is no accident that the ascended masters in their UFOs resemble ancient characters like Ishtar and Tammuz, Isis and Osiris, Zeus and Artemis or Jupiter and Diana.  New Age gods pretend to come from outer space.  In fact, they are the familiar dark forces who are native to our own planet: “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience … ” (Ephesians 2:2).  Here, in Ephesians 2:2, Satan is called ” … the prince of the power of the air.”  In the Greek text, the reference is to the atmospheric heavens.  The final word of this clause is aer, referring to the atmosphere or air, particularly the lower and denser air, as opposed to the higher and rarer air of the mountaintops.  This strongly suggests that the power is earthly, rather than heavenly (or of the heavens).  It only masquerades as a vanguard from elsewhere. Really, it originates from right here on planet Earth.  This makes perfect sense, since Satan is called ” … the god of this world …” (2 Corinthians 4:4).  He is not the god of outer space, but the god of this world … the Earth.  This is his territory and he is free to roam it.  His angels are both strong and vicious.  Like him, they trade upon deception.  To a certain large segment of the unsaved, they are not only wise and all-powerful, but represent the great hope for the salvation of this planet and it’s people.

A WING OF HORRORS

The great environmental shift that is so deeply desired by the New Agers is well known to Christians.  We call it the “Great Tribulation.”  Jesus spoke of it in the New Testament book of Matthew when he said the following … When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:15-21). Note that in this passage, he starts with the “abomination of desolation.” and ends with the “great tribulation.”  This, or course, links the great tribulation to the time when the Antichrist presents himself as a god.  As Jesus speaks of this time, he naturally refers to the book of Daniel, among other things, confirming the authority and divine inspiration of Biblical scripture.  He also wants his hearers to know that he is referring to a specific event – the time of Antichrist’s public declaration of godhood. Daniel 9:27 is the originating verse: “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate” (Daniel 9:27). Here in one verse, we find Daniel’s seventieth week of years, plus a confirmation of the functioning of a Temple in Israel and the blasphemous act referred to by Jesus in the Matthew account.  Here, “abomination of desolation” becomes “and for the overspreading abominations he shall make it desolate.” Precisely to what does this strange phrase refer?  The Hebrew phrase here is quite interesting: (ve-al kanaf shequtzim meshmehm), literally “and upon a wing of abominatins, a desolator.”  Some translators read this as “upon a wing of horrors, a desolator.”  The word translated “overspreading” is the literal Hebrew word for “wing.”  This word comes from a root term meaning, “to cover over or hide.”  The term is also used to refer to the wing of an angel, either holy or (one assumes in this case) fallen.  Surely, a “wing of horrors”couldn’t possibly refer to the wing of a holy angel.  The word that is translated “abomination” in the King James Version  of the Bible [shequtz], refers to something absolutely impure; to the flesh of victims sacrificed to idols, or to uncleanness in general.  Why a wing?  Might this refer to the power behind the Antichrist?  A wing of horror or abomination is the perfect image of a fallen angel.  There is no doubt that the Antichrist will be backed by these dark forces from on high.  As the Apostle Paul puts it in the book of Ephesians:   “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). This unholy alliance represents the rank and file of fallen angels and demons.  At the top of the list, “principalities” represent the archons, or high-ranking fallen angels.  At the behest of their prince, Satan, they patrol the aerial regions of the planet to do his bidding.  They are accompanied by various lower-ranking orders of delegated power, rule and authority.  Together, they comprise the flying swarms of evil and unclean spirit beings who are so often mentioned in scripture.  If they aren’t a “wing of horrors,” what is?

WAR IN HEAVEN

Spiritual warfare is rapidly assuming a new and very present reality.  For many generations, the powers of the air have remained quietly behind the scenes. Certainly, they have done their dirty work, but, more often than not, it has been an invisible force.  Now, however, a visible delusion has reached it’s final stage of preparation. Angelic battles are being framed in a context more palatable for public consumption. These days, they are being seen as forces from the stars.  What’s more, they are hailed as the benefactors of mankind.  In looking at one of the leaders of these fallen angels (archons), he is seen as the possessor of ancient and high ranking status.  We find him mentioned in the book of Revelation: “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon” (Revelation 9:11). The ninth chapter of Revelation chronicles the opening of the “bottomless pit,” certainly a reference to Hades – headquarters for the forces of evil.  Upon it’s opening, hordes of bizarre creatures are released to plague the earth. They are described as locust-like in appearance.  This is very curious, since thousands of “UFO abductees” have described those ubiquitous little gray aliens as having a certain “insect-like” appearance. Is there a connection? Certainly, they’re both types of demons.  We are again reminded that in the current mythology of science-fiction, beings with a bizarre appearance are being normalized. In the verse above, they slavishly follow the orders of their commander, Abaddon.  In the Old Testament, his name is synonymous destruction.  Scripture reveals that God will allow his future release to fulfill a judgment against the planet and it’s citizens. How will the destroying angel appear to those unfortunate enough to have been left behind after the event of the rapture and still be alive on earth in those days?  Will they see and think of him as an “extraterrestrial?”  Or will the truth finally dawn? Will they finally figure out that they are being besieged by a chief of demons and his swarms of followers from Hell?  All of this is leading to a great aerial battle in which good and evil angels finally clash in a titanic battle: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:7-9). Based upon the propaganda machine that we see today, men will probably interpret these events in terms of high-tech phenomena from outer space. How very wrong they will be.

UFO PYROTECHNICS

The progressive clouding of men’s minds has been brought to almost it’s full extent. All that is needed to complete the picture is an open display of power.  As long as the church is present upon the Earth, that seems unlikely.  However, even before the event of the rapture, we are beginning to see open displays of occultic and otherwise evil manifestations of power, as can be seen in an ABC News report in the video below.

PROPHET YAHWEH SUMMONS UFO FOR ABC NEWS

 

The protective influence of God’s Holy Spirit will preclude this.  Only after the departure of “born again” believers off the earth in the event of the rapture can the delusion assume it’s full proportion.  From this point of view, the catching away of the church may not be the “secret rapture” that everyone has been talking about.  In fact, the rapture may happen in broad daylight.  If Satan uses a huge “space and light show” of UFO pyrotechnics to prove to the world that our beloved “space brothers” have come to save the planet, why cover up the rapture? The ready explanation for our supernatural departure would fall under the heading of mass evacuation,” or “alien abduction.”  His global propaganda machine could easily persuade the world that all of this was perfectly normal, and covered by some master plan.  If all this sounds too strange to be true, think about the account of Jesus’ ascension in the book of Acts: And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:9-11). Here, we see Jesus lifted up into a “cloud” on his way to Heaven.  Certainly, this was no ordinary cloud in the normal sense of the word.  Will born again believers, a.k.a. the body of Christ, experience a similar triumph as we leave the earth?  We certainly will, as confirmed by the words of Paul in the book of 1 Thessalonians: “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:17). Surely, these are the same sort of clouds as the one into which Christ ascended.  So, even if the church (born again believers) are lifted up into these “clouds” in broad daylight, it won’t matter.  By that time, the world will be completely convinced that civilization has finally entered the age of intergalactic travel, courtesy of the space brothers.  They will believe that they are entering into an era of great peace and fulfillment.  The global delusion will be complete.  If Satan’s plan is this close to fulfillment, the Lord’s coming for his own can’t be far away.
