When describing the conditions that usher in the End Times, Jesus gave several categories of startling events.
Fearful events and great signs from the heavens could include disastrous weather, modern threats, like
asteroids, space junk, solar flares, and even UFO scares.
Thousands of possible UFO sightings have been registered during this generation. Numerous movies have explored the possibility of alien life forms visiting or invading the Earth. Somewhere between the extremes of wild speculation and blind denial, the evidence suggests that there is something unexplained happening. This could be the major fulfillment of Jesus' prediction of "fearful events." Fear of the unknown could be used by the "Man of Sin" in the End Times to convince people to believe lies (2 Thessalonians 2). The greatest deception of that future time will undoubtedly be a false explanation about the millions of born-again Christians who will disappear at the Rapture, when Jesus returns for believers of the Church Age. UFO phenomena may be a demonic set-up for the lie that some New Age believers already teach, that as the "Age of Aquarius" is ushered in, alien spacecraft will remove the "troublemakers" from the Earth.
