Well, they've done it again. The Roman Catholic Church, playing the role of compromiser with false science, has yet again managed to get itself on the wrong side of a scientific argument. This time they have managed to do it before the scientific discovery in question has even been made! In doing so, they are inadvertently delivering the one billion Catholics worldwide right into the hands of the devil. Perhaps the Pontiff of the world's largest Christian church is inevitably destined to play the role of the infamous "second beast" in the forthcoming "end-times."
"The questions of life's origins and of whether life exists elsewhere in the universe are very suitable and deserve serious consideration," said the Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, an astronomer and director of the Vatican Observatory. Funes, a Jesuit priest, presented the results Tuesday of a five-day conference that gathered astronomers, physicists, biologists and other experts to discuss the budding field of astrobiology — the study of the origin of life and its existence elsewhere in the cosmos. Funes said the possibility of alien life raises "many philosophical and theological implications" but added that the gathering was mainly focused on the scientific perspective and how different disciplines can be used to explore the issue.
Chris Impey, an astronomy professor at the University of Arizona, said it was appropriate that the Vatican would host such a meeting. "Both science and religion posit life as a special outcome of a vast and mostly inhospitable universe," he told a news conference Tuesday. "There is a rich middle ground for dialogue between the practitioners of astrobiology and those who seek to understand the meaning of our existence in a biological universe." Thirty scientists, including non-Catholics, from the U.S., France, Britain, Switzerland, Italy and Chile attended the conference, called to explore among other issues "whether sentient life forms exist on other worlds." -Associated Press
It's bad enough that most of our juvenile society is excited over the prospect of extra-terrestrial life, after all, we have been conditioned through movies, television, and other assorted science fiction media to accept this as an almost certainty...but shouldn't the Christian Church know better? Should it not recognize that the discovery, and subsequent acceptance, of the existence of intelligent life on other planets would represent an existential threat not just to Judeo-Christianity but to our civilization as a whole? In fact, if we are to consult the Bible for information about such a prospect, we would realize that not only is such a discovery likely, it is almost a certainty. However, it is the interpretation of that realization that will become a matter of life and death.
As Christians we should KNOW that there is extra-terrestrial life and, just as has been postulated by Erich Von Daniken in his famous work "Chariots of the Gods," we likewise KNOW that these extra-terrestrials have been to earth before and have left behind evidence of their mingling with the affairs of mankind. Where we differ, slightly, is in the interpretation of the evidence. Those in Von Daniken's camp postulate that the extra-terrestrials originated on some planet elsewhere in the galaxy. We KNOW better.
It is one of the most damning eras in earth's history, and the Bible has much to say about it...including the extreme likelihood that we will physically see these creatures again.
GENESIS: 6:1-4: And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Ahh yes...the infamous sons of God (also known by their Hebrew name Benai Elohim). Apparently they liked our women and decided to come and take them for themselves. It is this mixing of "extra-terrestrial" flesh with human flesh that created the situation that was so unacceptable to God that he had to put a stop to it:
GENESIS 6:12-13: And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
If we were to take the Bible literally, and there is no reason to do otherwise, it would appear that the Benai Elohim were,in fact, introducing unacceptable DNA into the human gene pool. This would explain why Noah was considered to be particularly eligible to be selected as the one to be spared from the coming annihilation.
GENESIS 6:8-9: But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
Noah was said to be "perfect in his generations." That the writer of Genesis went out of his way to make this statement would seem to verify that none in Noah's family lineage had participated in the forbidden couplings that produced the genetically unacceptable offspring.
This, of course, begs the obvious question: Who and what were these "Benai Elohim?" For the secular conspiratorialist, these would be a race of extra-terrestrials likely from a planet in the Orion star system. Zechariah Sitchin fans may want to claim they arrived from the infamous planet X, also called "Niburu." For those from the Judeo-Christian philosophy, the answer is simple and given:
JUDE 1:6-8: And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
That's right. They were simply angels who violated the estate of Heaven to corrupt the earth. Not only do we know who and what they were, we know that their actions were considered such an offense to God that he would destroy ALL of their offspring, completely re-engineer the earth and lock away the offending angels. That should be considered a strong warning to anyone who should encounter such "visitors" in the future. Certainly, the fact that they made "breeding" with humans a major element of their criminal enterprise hints of a peculiarly nefarious intent. Were they attempting to destroy the human race by genetically altering it? If humanity were wiped out in favor of a new race of angelic humans would not this defeat the plan of God to redeem us all through the blood of Jesus Christ.?
GENESIS 3:14-15: And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
In God's plan of salvation, there is the promise that sin would ultimately be overcome by one of Eve's descendants. It would appear that the rebellious Benai Elohim intended to thwart that redemption, even before it began. These are not things to take lightly when considering the ramifications of initiating contact with extra-terrestrials a third time...did I say a third time? Then perhaps you are wondering what happened in the second biblically revealed instance of contact with extra-terrestrials.
GENESIS 6:4: There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
There was a second instance of contact. The giants (also known as Nephilim) spoken of as being the result of the offspring of these forbidden encounters also show up when Moses and the Israelites prepare to take the land assigned to them by God. Moses sent twelve spies to observe the land before their invasion. Their report was astonishing:
NUMBERS 13:32-33: And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
As I am sure most of you are aware, the fear that all but two of Israel's spies possessed offended God. He had, after all, delivered Israel from the Pharaoh's bondage in Egypt and had repeatedly delivered these people from further dangers. The spies searched the land for forty days and as a reward for their lack of faith, God sentenced them to forty years of wandering aimlessly in the desert. One year of wandering for each day the spies spent in the land of Canaan. Everyone over the age of twenty was to die off before Israel would be led back to make its entrance into the promised land. There were two exceptions to this punishment. Because they alone did not act in fear but tried to encourage the others to invade the land, both Caleb and Joshua would be allowed to live and participate in the actual invasion.
This invasion would, in fact, be commanded by Joshua. He would take over leadership of Israel after the death of Moses. The invasion would be conducted according to the law of Cherem, which was the practice of consecration by total annihilation. This was issued by the command of God and carried out against the people who inhabited the land and had also followed after the angelic beings just as was done in Noah's time. There was to be no looting nor mercy. Everyone was to be killed and everything was to be destroyed. This is the price of worshiping angels and bearing their offspring. Gold could be kept but only after it had been melted into a non-offending form.
The totality of the destruction of this land and its' inhabitants is consistent with the judgement first administered to the earth in Noah's time. The Cherem carried out by Joshua is likewise to be seen as a judgement against the inhabitants of the land for following after false gods...in particular the Benai Elohim. The annihilation of the land and its inhabitants consecrated it for its new purpose. It would now and forever be known as the Holy Land. It is clear from a Biblical perspective that mingling with angelic extra-terrestrials does not lead to good fortune. However, the Bible indicates that there may yet be more angelic interference to come.
In the previous incidents of contact with the Benai Elohim, the angels were more than willing to present themselves as gods and demand the worship and tribute afforded such status. In the ancient texts known as the Dead Sea Scrolls the book of Enoch sits alongside the oldest known manuscripts of the Old Testament in such a way as to indicate that those who lived at the time of Jesus paid considerable attention to its' tale of angelic temptation. The book of Enoch goes into considerably more detail as to the behavior of these rogue angels and in doing so suggests that most of the mythology about amorous, disagreeable, violent and arrogant gods that permeates ancient cultures did, in fact, happen. It is clear that the original caretakers of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the society that spawned them, were well aware of these beings...and their true nature.
Unfortunately, we are smarter than they were...or so we have led ourselves to believe. We are not susceptible to "gods" in our modern age of reason. Or as captain James T. Kirk would say: "we don't bow to every creature who happens to have a bag of tricks." So if the Benai Elohim were to make yet another appearance in the flesh, they would have to modify their plan. And they do have a plan...they must! For you see, unlike the educated godless intellectuals who dominate our intelligentsia, they KNOW the truth about God and his word. They read the Bible. Therefore they know very well what destiny awaits them...
REVELATION 12: 7-9: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Hmm...Whatcha reckon that would look like to us?
It should occur to any reasonable person that an angel of Lucifer's calibre is not going to enter into his combat with Michael unprepared. He has been aware that he will lose the engagement and be cast out of the heavens for over 2000 years. It would seem reasonable to assume that he might have cultivated and nurtured the earth in such a way as to guarantee himself and his fallen compadres a warm reception upon their forced arrival...and so he has.
The plethora of science fiction and pseudo-scientific entertainment that postulates the existence of intelligent extra-terrestrial life on other planets is no accident. You are being conditioned for the arrival of just such creatures. The modern world has no appetite for the worshiping of "gods," but a crew of aliens on a spaceship will be happily greeted by all! The cat and mouse game of seeing UFO's only to have them disappear, along with the allusions to government "cover-ups," has kept the thought of extra-terrestrial visitation in our imaginations for over half a century. Unfortunately, when we are at last openly contacted, these "extra-terrestrials" will have an agenda that has been knowable for 2000 years...and yet most people will not know it. They will prefer to believe the stories told by the angels.
Of course the Benai Elohim will initially claim they are here to help us. They will also claim to have been watching over us all along, which of course is true. They will tell us they came from someplace that will have plenty of religious significance to the ancient mystery religions from cultures like Egypt and Babylon. Almost certainly it will be from the star system of Sirius. They likewise will claim to have been, or been in contact with, every major religious figure of every religion since the beginning of time. In many instances they will not be lying. You can be certain that Joseph Smith, Muhammad and so many more HAVE been "instructed" by them over the centuries. Their sorcery, designed to look like a technology far beyond our capability, will appear impressive. It will, however, be an illusion. The "spaceships" and the appearance of technology is a deception presented entirely for our benefit.
Naturally the world will follow after these extra-terrestrials and believe every word they say. So impressive will be their illusion that even those who should KNOW better will beleive it as well...
MATTHEW 24:24: For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
How many of you are prepared to resist the entire world when it tells you God is an extra-terrestrial and the spaceships are there for all to see? Did you really think this "Immaculate Deception" would simply be some bearded guy in a toga claiming to be Jesus? Now you will learn what it was like for Noah to stand against the whole world...or will you?
We need not be the victims of these false spirits, for we have been given a weapon that can unmask their fraud if we are prepared to use it...
1 JOHN 4:1-3: Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Yes, that's right. We can, and must, test these spirits. For if the Bible is true enough that this great deception comes upon us, likewise we can use it to point out to the people of the earth that these creatures and their impressive spaceships are, in fact, earth bound. They can't go anywhere off the planet. If you will recall from REVELATION 12, the angels have been cast out of the heavens and they are not to be found in the heavens anymore. We are already armed with the method of proving that the alien's claims are lies. Of course, pointing this out can get a lot of us killed but this is the fight that awaits us.
I write this knowing full well that many Christians among you believe in such trojan horse doctrines as a pre-tribulation rapture that would, if true, relieve a good portion of you of the burden of living through these events. Such a topic is in itself a large debate too great to enter into here. Suffice it to say that I believe such ideas have been planted into the churches to make them more susceptible to the deception. Christians who believe they will not be here for these events will react to them weakly...if at all.
Whether actual contact with the Benai Elohim will be as visible and theatrical as I have described it here cannot be known yet. I present this merely as a possibility...a warning. The truth is that the technology now exists to manufacture the illusion of an extra-terrestrial invasion without ever having to have any real extra-terrestrials. What better way to encourage the collapse of international boundaries and cause the whole world to willingly pursue international co-operation? Of course, international co-operation of this magnitude will require an international government. It has been suggested before:
"If only extraterrestrials were about to invade, then our two countries could unite against the common enemy." -Ronald Reagan to Soviet General Secretary Gorbachev.
Don't dare think that message went unheard.
Fallen angels have always been with us. The physical manifestation and open manipulation is what has been unique to certain Biblical times. Always remember...
LUKE 17: 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
Since the active participation of the Benai Elohim was a major factor in the corruption of the earth in the days of Noah, you can reasonably expect them to be around in the days leading up to Jesus' return. You could even look upon the passage of REVELATION 12:7-9 as their official invitation.
I will leave you with these words of warning from the well known physicist Stephen Hawking. This is a man with no love for Christianity or the word of God. Yet even he knows nothing good will come from an encounter with extra-terrestrials:
“We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach. If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.” - Stephen Hawking
It's much worse than that Mr. Hawking. Worse than even someone with your impressive intellect could ever conceive. Whether the extra-terrestrials are the real Benai Elohim or a manufactured hoax, you can rest assured they are not going to be who they claim to be.
Be afraid...be very afraid.
