Surprisingly, UFO sightings go back as far as our historical records. Bright, glowing, mysterious, objects in the sky have been reported as far back as 90 B.C.
Even Columbus reported seeing a "flying ship" at the Bermuda Triangle on October 11, 1492.
On June 24, 1947, pilot Kenneth
Arnold was flying over the Cascades near Mt. Rainer when he saw
what he described as "flying saucers" skipping along
the clouds like stones on a pond. This is where the term "flying
saucer" came from. Usually this type of sighting would have
been ridiculed but Arnold's good reputation forced the press to
give the sighting serious attention.
A captured flying saucer?
Just a few days later on July 2, 1947 on a ranch near Roswell, NM, a flying disk apparently crashed. Small, greenish-white bodies and a strange foil-like substance were said to have been found around the wreckage.
The Army announced, at first, that it had the wreckage of a flying saucer in custody. A day later, however, they said it was just a weather balloon.
In 1954 thousands of sightings were reported. Flying saucers were even sighted flying over the White House. There were so many that year that pilots were sighting 8-10 UFO's a night.
In 1963 astronomers at Mt. Palomar observatory reported seeing 260 UFO's flying across the moon. The number of sightings in 1963 was well over a million. Among those who saw the flying saucers were- 11 trained USAF observers; 6 trained USN observers; 4 trained USMC observers; 4 trained Army observers; 14 scientists and 40+ airline pilots. Could they all have been wrong?
The abductee phenomenon
In 1961 Betty and Barney Hill lost 2 hours and 35 miles from their car trip in New England. It was reportedly discovered, under hypnosis, that they had been taken aboard an alien space craft and were probed medically and then returned to their car in a state of amnesia. They were the first known alien abductees.
In the 1980's Raymond Fowler and Whitley Streiber began investigating alien abductions. They discovered that more and more people were having abduction experiences.
Since the late 1980's reports
of alien abduction have skyrocketed. The respected Harvard psychiatrist,
Dr. John Mack, states that he believes that 4-5 million Americans
believe that they have been abducted by aliens.
Do aliens really exist?
as though UFO's are a real phenomenon. The sightings can't all
be phony. After all, there have been millions of sightings and
5% of them (which is a lot) have been totally unexplainable. So
then, what is an alien?
A Biblical perspective
Although the Bible doesn't mention life on any other planet it does tell us about beings who have invaded, and still are, invading our planet.
In the beginning after God had created everything Satan entered into an animal known as a serpent (Gen. 3).
With this disguise he was able to trick mankind into accepting him. This was the first Satanic invasion!
In the days of Noah
In Genesis 6 another type of Satanic invasion takes place. Genesis 6:1-4 says, "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."
The term "sons of God" is used several times in the Old Testament (Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7). Many believe that it is a reference to angels. In the context of these passages it's obvious that these "sons of God/angels" are not angels of God in good standing for they had sexual relations with human females. These are obviously fallen angels.
Apparently, at this time, fallen angels married human women and had children (half human, half fallen angel). These children were called "giants" (Hebrew- nephilim). They may have been physically large, but one thing is for sure, being half fallen angel they would have had "giant spiritual power." These half-breed children were also called "men of old." It's interesting that "the old ones" is another name for fallen angels in occult circles.
The next major event in history
after the mingling of humans and evil spirits was the flood (Gen.
6-8). The interbreeding of man and evil spirits must have been
the last straw for God! (Gen. 6:7-22, 7-9)
Why would human women marry fallen angels?
Mankind had become extremely evil by this point in time. However, the most likely explanation is that, just as Satan disguised himself in the garden, so did these fallen angels. The fallen angels probably disguised themselves as handsome human men, who of course, displayed dazzling, spiritual power. This was the second Satanic invasion!
Why would fallen angels want to marry human women?
Satan knew right from the beginning
that God would raise up a human redeemer for mankind. If he could
totally corrupt the human race (making all humans half human and
half fallen angel) then the messiah could not be born sinless
but would be born part fallen angel. Fallen angels are sinful
and can not be saved!
Another alien/ Satanic invasion?
Is it possible that today's alien invasion, many of which include abductions where women are impregnated by aliens and then the babies are taken from them, is just another attempt by fallen angels to corrupt mankind. And possibly raise up a half-breed army to fight against the Lord in the battle of Armageddon?
Because of our technological advances and knowledge of space, is it possible that fallen angels are disguising themselves (this time around) as aliens in hopes of once again tricking mankind into accepting them?
One thing is for sure, the Bible says, "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be" (II Cor. 12:10).
In other words, close to the
time of the second coming of Christ, the world and mankind will
be in a similar state as they were right before the flood. And
what was happening right before the flood? Fallen angels were
reproducing with mankind!
A word of encouragement
Whether aliens are creatures from other planets, or fallen angels in disguise, or half human half fallen angel beings (which would be very difficult for us to fight against because being part human gives them the right to temporarily, in this life, resist God's authority) one thing is for sure, as always, when things are too hard for us we can call on the Lord to intervene and he will!
II Corinthians 12:10 says, "Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."
"And He (Jesus) said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God" (Lk. 18:27).
Nahum 1:7 says, "The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him."
