How will people react when alien life is discovered? This is the question NASA has hired theologians from different religions to answer. It is supposed to shake religious belief systems and people’s faith in a supreme creator, but anyone who studies scripture should be expecting this sort of headline. Please see the following link, and yes, even Snopes says it is true. Please click on the blue box for link to the article.
Anyone familiar with the book of Enoch has a much better understanding of the spiritual realm written about in the New Testament than someone who only hears a verse or two read on Sunday morning. One has to understand the origin of evil spirits, fallen angels and demons to grasp what is happening. The presentation may be different, but it is just the adversary’s last attempt to deceive and rule the world.
Eph 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Paul speaks of the forces of evil in the heavenly places. These entities mean business, and the average Christian who never reads or understands the Bible will have their faith shaken. Paul goes on to tell us, Ephesians 6:13, “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.”.
The first visitation from celestial beings was recorded in Genesis six. These are the angels, or “sons of God”, that decided to leave their first estate as Jude tells us.
Jud 1:4 For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
Jud 1:5 Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
Jud 1:6 And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day—
Jude is referring to the “sons of God” who landed on Mount Hermon, and the resulting Nephilim.
Gen 6:1 And it happened that, when humankind began to multiply on the face of the ground, daughters were born to them.
Gen 6:2 Then the sons of God saw the daughters of humankind, that they were beautiful. And they took for themselves wives from all that they chose.
Gen 6:3 And Yahweh said, “My Spirit shall not abide with humankind forever in that he is also flesh. And his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were upon the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God went into the daughters of humankind, and they bore children to them.
Chief Jospeh Riverwind speaks about the star people visiting his ancestors as told in the oral tradition of the story tellers. It is interesting to hear oral tradition from tribes that have the Genesis six story in their history. Below is a link to Chief Riverwind and his wife discussing some of these matters.

The deception will be great. We are only at the beginning, whether there will be supposed aliens revealed or not.
Luk 21:25 “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves,
Luk 21:26 people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
The world is very good at being deceived and impugning anyone who is not as deceived, or that happens to question the deception. Unfortunately, the so-called Christian community does not stand out from the world and has no discernment due to indifference and apostasy. If an alien narrative that tells of aliens seeding mankind ever is presented, the Christian community will probably lose its faith quite easily. Most already accept Darwinism by allegorizing scripture, and an alien origin would be attractive to Christians and atheist alike.
Note the following: Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”.
The Bible supports non-human entities appearing all through its pages. These creatures in the following verses are locust that sting like scorpions, and are described as horses prepared for battle with human faces. Notice that they are not allowed to harm the people that have the seal of God on their foreheads.
Rev 9:1 And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit.
Rev 9:2 He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.
Rev 9:3 Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth.
Rev 9:4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
Rev 9:5 They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone.
Rev 9:6 And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.
Rev 9:7 In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces,
Rev 9:8 their hair like women’s hair, and their teeth like lions’ teeth;
Rev 9:9 they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle.
Rev 9:10 They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails.
Rev 9:11 They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.
Their king is Abaddon, or in other places, the destroyer. These evil entities are carrying out the wrath of Yahweh. Ezekiel tells us of angels with sledgehammers destroying those that didn’t have the mark of Yah on their forehead.
Eze 9:1 And he called in my ears with a loud voice, saying, “They have come near, the punishers of the city, and each with his weapon of destruction in his hand.
Eze 9:2 And look! Six men coming from the way of the upper gate that faced northward, and each with his weapon for shattering in his hand; and one man was in the midst of them, dressed in linen, and the writing case of the scribe was at his side. And they came and stood beside the bronze altar.
Eze 9:3 And the glory of the God of Israel lifted itself up from upon the cherub that he was on and went to the threshold of the house, and he called to the man who was clothed in linen with a scribal writing case at his side.
Eze 9:4 And Yahweh said to him, “Go through in the midst of the city, in the midst of Jerusalem, and you must place a mark on the foreheads of the men who are groaning and lamenting about all of the detestable things that are being done in the midst of her.”
Eze 9:5 And to the others he said in my hearing, “Go through the city behind him and kill! Your eyes shall not take pity, and you shall not have compassion.
Are you groaning and lamenting all of the detestable things that are in our midst? This judgement was on God’s own people who were defiling the temple with symbols and traditions of foreign gods. Will it be any different for the church today?
Eze 8:17 And he said to me, “Have you seen, son of man? Was it too small a thing for the house of Judah to do the detestable things that they did here? For they filled up the land with violence, and they provoked me to anger again, and look! They are putting the branch to their nose.
Eze 8:18 And so I will act in rage, and my eye will not take pity, and I will not have compassion, and they will cry in my ear with a loud voice, and I will not hear them.”
Here are some more alien type beings appearing in the book of Revelation.
Rev 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.
Rev 16:13 And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs.
Rev 16:14 For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty.
The workings of Satan, which is a Hebrew word meaning adversary, will be very deceptive. The world has been primed to accept an alien narrative for many years. Christians who are quick to allegorize the creation story will accept the alien narrative with open arms. Those who have the mark of Yahweh on their foreheads will not have to fear whatever the future holds.
Isa 26:19 Your dead shall live; their corpses shall rise. Wake up and sing for joy, dwellers of the dust, for your dew is celestial dew, and the earth will give birth to dead spirits.
Isa 26:20 Go, my people, enter into your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide for a very little while, until the wrath has passed over.
Isa 26:21 For look! Yahweh is about to come out from his place to punish the iniquity of the inhabitants of the earth against him, and the earth will disclose her blood and will no longer cover her slain.
Isa 27:1 On that day, Yahweh will punish with his cruel, great and strong sword Leviathan, the fleeing serpent, and Leviathan, the twisting serpent, and he will kill the sea monster that is in the sea.
The Leviathan, or great serpent, will ultimately be destroyed by Yahweh himself. Ezekiel tells us of the beginnings of the serpent, or cherub, and the end.
Eze 28:16 In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God, and I destroyed you, O guardian cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you.
Eze 28:18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries; so I brought fire out from your midst; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all who saw you.
Eze 28:19 All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever.”
We can withstand whatever comes our way in the future if we repent and follow the commandments of Yahweh. Jesus, or in Hebrew, Yeshua, came to destroy the works of evil. 1John 3:8, “Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.”.
Do not be deceived. The modern gospel teaches lawlessness. Many have and will come in the authority of Christ and deceive many.
Rev 14:12 Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.
Rev 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”
