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.

Big News About UFOs and Extraterrestrials

Sept. 28, 2010 - During this week two sensational news 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 was a Malaysian astrophysicist named Mazlan Othman, who already holds the position of director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.
