Possible alien connection to prophecy of the end of days....
First, UFO phenomena are but one part of an astonishing outpouring of "paranormal" events – what just a few years ago most people would have
considered as "miracles." Dr. Vallee, in The Invisible College, expresses the secular appreciation of this fact: "Observations of unusual events
suddenly loom into our environment by the thousands" (p. 187),
causing "a general shifting of man’s belief patterns, his entire relationship to the concept of the invisible" (p. 114).
"Something is happening to human consciousness" (p. 34); the same "powerful force [that] has influenced the human race in the past is again
influencing it now" (p. 14).
In Christian language this means: a new demonic outpouring is being loosed upon mankind. In the Christian apocalyptic view (see the end of this book),
we can see that the power which until now has restrained the final and most terrible manifestation of demonic activity on earth has been taken away
(II Thes. 2:7),
Orthodox Christian government and public order (whose chief representative on earth was the Orthodox emperor) and the Orthodox Christian world view no
longer exist as a whole, and satan has been "loosed out of his prison," where he was kept by the grace of the Church of Christ, in order to
"deceive the nations" (Apoc. 20:7-8) and prepare them to worship Antichrist at the end of the age.
Perhaps never since the beginning of the Christian era have demons appeared so openly and extensively as today.
The "visitors from outer space" theory is but one of the many pretexts they are using to gain acceptance for the idea that "higher beings" are now
to take charge of the destiny of mankind.
Second, UFOs are but the newest of the mediumistic techniques by which the devil gains initiates into his occult realm.
They are a terrible sign that man has become susceptible to demonic influence as never before in the Christian era. In the 19th century it was
usually necessary to seek out dark seance rooms in order to enter into contact with demons, but now one need only look into the sky (usually at night,
it is true). Mankind has lost what remained of basic Christian understanding up to now, and now passively places itself at the disposal of whatever
"powers" may descend from the sky.
The new film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, is a shocking revelation of how superstitious "post-Christian" man has become – ready in an
instant and unquestioningly to believe and follow hardly-disguised demons wherever they might lead.
Third, the "message" of the UFOs is: prepare for Antichrist; the "savior" of the apostate world is coming to rule it. Perhaps he himself will come
in the air, in order to complete his impersonation of Christ (Matt. 24:30; Acts 1:11); perhaps only the "visitors from outer space" will land
publicly in order to offer "cosmic" worship of their master; perhaps the "fire from heaven" (Apoc. 13:13) will be only a part of the great demonic
spectacles of the last times.
At any rate, the message for contemporary mankind is: expect deliverance, not from the Christian revelation and faith in an unseen God, but from
vehicles in the sky.
It is one of the signs of the last times that there shall be terrors and great signs from heaven (Luke 21:11).
Even a hundred years ago Bishop Ignatius Brianchaninov, in his book On Miracles and Signs (Yaroslavl, 1870, reprinted by Holy Trinity Monastery,
Jordanville, N.Y., 1960), remarked on "the striving to be encountered in contemporary Christian society to see miracles and even perform
miracles…Such a striving reveals the self-deception, founded on self-esteem and vainglory, that dwells in the soul and possesses it" (p. 32).
True wonder workers have decreased and grown extinct, but people "thirst for miracles more than ever before…We are gradually coming near to the time
when a vast arena is to be opened up for numerous and striking false miracles, to draw to perdition those unfortunate offspring of fleshly wisdom who
will be seduced and deceived by these miracles" (pp. 48-49).
