Signs of the Times

Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs)

And alien life forms - Jesus' prediction of "Fearful Sights."


When describing the conditions that usher in the End Times, Jesus gave several categories of startling events.

Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful sights and great signs from heaven." (Luke 21:10-11)

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 sights." 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 when the coming "Age of Aquarius" is ushered in, alien spacecraft will remove the "troublemakers" from the Earth.

'Alien Message' to be returned with your 2-cents

June 26, 2012 - Thirty-five years ago (1977) the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI), received an intense 72-second radio transmission coming from the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. The signal has been called the "Wow!" message because of its uniqueness. It is the only recorded data that stands out from the "noise in the four decades that astronomers have been scouring the heavens for signs of life."

Finally, an attempted response to the message will be beamed back out toward the source, and any tweeted message, between 5 p.m. and midnight PDT Friday, June 29, sent tagged with #ChasingUFOs, will be included in the message, according to the National Geographic Channel. No one knows if the message will ever reach its destination.

Scientists say the signal would have required a 2.2 gigawatt transmitter, vastly more powerful than any existing terrestrial radio station.
And if it is received by aliens, who knows if they will be able to interpret it.

Hypothesis on alien life gains heft

May 15, 2012 - Professor Paul Springer of the U.S. Air Command and Staff College at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama was a recent guest on an Australian talk show said that the U.S. military is making plans for the possibility of an alien invasion, and that his superiors had authorized him to discuss the matter.
In commenting on Springer's quote, Michael Salla, founder of the Honolulu-based Exopolitics Institute, noted it has been documented for more than 60 years that UFOs have been observing U.S. nuclear weapons facilities and, in some cases, have disrupted their launch capability.

Viking robots found life on Mars in 1976, scientists say

April 12, 2012 - A new analysis published this week by NASA scientists and mathematicians of data from the Viking Mars mission some 36 years ago indicates that Mars has living bacteria. Neuropharmacologist and biologist Joseph Miller, with the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine says that we do not need to send a human expedition to Mars to validate the claim.
"On the basis of what we've done so far, I'd say I'm 99 percent sure there's life there," he added.

UFOs Appear On Prophecy Central

April 16, 2012 -

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 produced 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.
