Articles about UFO’s are not really new on the Prophecy Central website. We have occasionally posted information about alien life and the appearance of Unidentified Flying Objects since the beginning of our service in 1996. Even then we thought that the periodic wave of sightings and speculation about UFOs was possibly a demonic deception that could be used by the “Man of Sin” (or Antichrist), who will appear in the End Times, to explain the disappearance of millions of people when the Rapture of the Church occurs.
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. – 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12
In the past we have posted news about UFOs in our “Fearful Events” section, which also reports on various signs in the heavens, including asteroids, comets, solar flares, space junk, and major storms. But now, thanks to the suggestion of an Internet friend, Brad Myers, we have decided to track UFO information in a separate section of the website. Brad Myers and Jim Tetlow have produces a fictional audio drama entitled The Coming Global Transformation. Brad has researched this phenomenon for many years and contributed to the production of the book “Alien Encounters” by Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman.
Here is a little insight about this subject from our own book, Connecting the Dots: A Handbook of Bible Prophecy (From Chapter 13, “The Plot Thickens”)…
During one week in September of 2010 two sensational stories, reported by major news sources, brought UFOs and extraterrestrial life back into the public eye. The first was about a press conference in Washington D.C. UFO researcher Robert Hastings announced that some 100 former and retired members of the US Air Force claim sightings of UFOs and say that aliens interfered with nuclear weapons.
The second big story was that the United Nations was seriously considering appointing an “Ambassador to Extraterrestrials.” The most likely person to be appointed to such a position was named as Mazlan Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist. News sources were asked to recast the story to include that Othman denied the appointment. However, she does already hold the position of director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.
Many Christians suspect that UFO appearances are often demonic manifestations. In any event, the end of the age will be a time of unprecedented deception. Satan’s power to imitate and counterfeit the miracles of God will increase and in those days, separating the real from the counterfeit will become increasingly more difficult.
