“Prometheus” , a movie by legendary director Ridley Scott, is going to be a blockbuster hit in summer 2012. The movie, about a team of scientists and astronauts who go on a top-secret journey to contact an alien race, has drawn much of its inspiration from the “Alien Gospel”, also known as the “Ancient Astronaut Theory” which states that aliens at some point in the distant past, created humanity and are responsible for the advanced knowledge held by ancient civilizations. This type of theory, which is being promoted heavily in movies and television, completely denies God and helps to prepare the world for a Satanic deception. This article will shed light on the Bible’s clear explanation of the alien phenomenon and that there is “life out there” that is not from this planet. But it is not an extra-terrestrial race. They are evil, spiritual beings who have rebelled against God and are now out to deceive humanity.
Prometheus marks the return to the Science Fiction genre for Ridley Scott, who directed the films ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner’, considered two of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time. In addition to the trailer, a great deal of information, rumors and spoilers regarding the plot of the film have been released. Here is the official plot synopsis:
“Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.”
The “profound question” and “life’s ultimate mystery” in the film are specifically, where did humans come from? And the answer that Prometheus provides is that an advanced alien race came to Earth, “seeded” the planet and started the evolutionary process that led to human beings. In the movie, ancient bio-technology of the “Engineers” (the aliens who created humanity) is discovered on Mars in the year 2085 and an archeologist, Elizabeth Shaw, who works in Africa looking for “evidence of God, is recruited by Meredith Vickers (played by Charlize Theron) of the Weyland Corporation, to help do a full scale archeological dig in deep space. Shaw has spent her career studying ancient civilizations for the common thread of belief that will help prove the existence of God. She is the daughter of Christian missionary parents and is a devout believer in God (Noomi Rapace, who plays Shaw in the film, has confirmed that her character is indeed a believer). Vickers tells Shaw that she will be given the opportunity of a lifetime as she could find the evidence of God she has been searching for.
The assignment involves heading to the “Citadel” of the ancient alien engineers. Once there, Shaw’s discoveries on Mars lead herto uncover evidence that aliens may possess information for the genetic code of all living beings on Earth. Shaw also is able to activate a “star chart” that shows a holographic map through space to the alien “home of the gods.” Giddy at the news, Weyland Corporation head Robert Weyland (played by Guy Pearce) authorizes the assembling of a crew to head into deep space (a voyage that takes 2 years) to find this newly discovered planet with the hopes of reverse engineering the alien technology for enormous financial gain. As the crew arrives, they discover a temple which the alien Engineers use and where the DNA for thousands of different species are stored in metal containers called ‘ampules’ (pictured in the photo above). The crew has entered into a temple of the “gods.” As the opening scenes of the film depict, alien beings created humans and all other species on Earth (and soon Shaw, the strong believer in God in the movie, loses her faith in Christ to start believing the Alien Gospel).
Thus the movie follows right along with the Alien Gospel. Ridley Scott, in his own interviews has stated the inspiration for the plot of the movie:
“Also, I ring off of… there’s a writer, Erich von Däniken. One of his most famous books was called Chariots of the Gods. Everyone thinks he was out of his mind, you know, for number one, “we are the creation of gods”…Things have changed so dramatically that you can start looking at the idea that all our history can be completely wrong and misguided. Because at some point someone has to put a statement down and have their own thesis, have their own theories. That was then later accepted or later is gradually dissolved and re-drawn or reworked. So now you’ve got the whole changed attitude with NASA, the church and I think even Hawking. Over the last thirty years have gone from “It’s highly unlikely that there’s anyone else in our galaxy, any other force, being in our galaxy,” to now, where they’re conceding that there are probably thousands of different lifeforms in this galaxy.
And I think Hawking actually said, “Let’s hope they don’t visit.” And I think the church has conceded as well that it would not be against the word of God if we conceded that there are other lifeforms in this galaxy. So, if you take that out, then the door is open. To me, it’s entirely logical. It’s entirely ridiculous to believe that we are the only ones here. That’s why my first thought is that for us to be sitting here right now is actually mathematically impossible without a lot of assistance. Who assisted? Who made the right decisions? Who was pushing and pulling to adjust us? That’s a fair question.” (source)
Scott’s answer to ‘the ultimate question’, based on Von Daniken’s work, is that aliens created, assisted and led us into today’s human society. And as we have detailed in past articles on aliens and the Nephilim, this is a deception. The “aliens” that people have seen, long for, or are expecting are nothing more than fallen angelic and demonic beings masquerading as visitors from outer space. And as will be shown in this article, the Bible has the real answers to these ultimate questions.
The Chariots of The Gods
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them” — Genesis 1:27-28
Von Daniken’s book, written in 1968, popularized, the “Ancient Astronaut Theory.” His theory is the following:
“For I claim that our forefathers received visits from the universe in the remote past. Even though I do not yet know who these extra-terrestrial intelligences were, or from which planet they came, I nevertheless proclaim that these ‘strangers’ annihilated part of mankind existing at the time and produced a new, perhaps the first, homo sapiens.” (p. 8 )
Von Daniken’s “proof” that aliens did once come to the planet and create us is based on the many megalithic structures all over the world from antiquity, such as the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, the Mayan pyramids in Mexico and other structures as evidence that ancient civilizations were visited by extraterrestrials and given advanced knowledge and assistance in building these monuments. He also devoted an entire chapter to attacking the Bible, which again is requisite in the Alien Gospel. If aliens made us, then there is no God and thus the truths of the Bible should no longer be taken seriously and only considered “fable.”
Von Daniken open the chapter in his book on the Bible with a direct attack on its credibility:
“The Bible is full of secrets and contradictions.
Genesis for example, begins with the creation of the Earth, which is reported with absolute geological accuracy. How did the writer know that minerals preceded plants and plants preceded animals?
‘And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness’: we read in Genesis 1:26.
Why does God speak in the plural? Why does he say ‘us’ not ‘me’, why ‘our’ not ‘my’? One would think that the only and only God ought to address mankind in the singular, not in the plural. (p. 44)
Whether one believes in the Bible or not, it is very hard for anyone with any knowledge of Christianity to say that the above points are “contradictions.” Moses, the writer of Genesis, spoke to God directly on a regular basis in the Bible, in addition to having the spoken and written testimony of the Biblical patriarchs. He even received the Ten Commandments, directly from God, written on stone tablets. For Moses to know the origin of the world from God is not even a stretch based on the accounts of his interaction and many conversations with God directly.
Additionally, the idea that God exists in three persons- The Father, Son and Holy Spirit is a very established Biblical point. John Chapter 1 states: John “In the beginning was the Word [Jesus], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” We also see at the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit descending on Jesus like a dove and God the Father speaks from Heaven (Luke 3:21-23). Thus all 3 beings of the divine trinity are present and acting at one time. So for God to speak in the plural, again, was not a contradiction when Jesus has been with God The Father since before time itself.
Von Daniken has been heavily featured on the History Channel’s show “Ancient Aliens”, one of the greatest promoters of the Alien Gospel of all time. The show examines ancient civilizations, the paranormal and even events from the lives of the founding fathers of America and attempts to draw conclusions that every reference to the supernatural was actually a reference to space aliens and UFOs. And just like in Chariots of the Gods?, the show repeatedly questions the Bible’s credibility and twists Biblical accounts to conclude that the authors may have called certain beings “gods” but what they really meant was aliens.
The True Ancient Aliens – The Evil Angels of Genesis 6
After attacking the Bible’s credibility. Von Daniken’s book jumps to a discussion of Genesis 6:
‘”1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.’ (Genesis 6:1-2)
Who can tell what sons of God took the daughters of men to wife? Ancient Israel had a single sacrosanct God. Where do the ‘sons of God’ come from?
‘ 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.’ (Genesis 6:4)
Once again we have the sons of God, who interbreed with human beings. Here too we have the first mention of giants. ‘Giants’ keep cropping up in all parts of the globe: in the mythology of the east and west, in the sagas of Tiahuanaco and the pics of the Eskimos. ‘Giants’ haunt the pages of almost all ancient books. So they must have existed. What sort of creatures were they, these ‘giants’? Were they our forefathers, who built the gigantic buildings and effortlessly manhandled the monoliths, or were they technically skilled space travelers from another star? One thing is certain. The Bible speaks of ‘giants’ and describes them as the ‘sons of God’ and these ‘sons of God’ bred with the daughters of men and multiply.” (‘Chariots of the Gods?’ p. 45)
Well on this last part Von Daniken is correct. The ‘sons of God’ did indeed marry and interbreed with the daughters of human men. What von Daniken did not know or acknowledge is that Bible scripture clearly explains who the ‘sons of God’ are and who their offspring were: the sons of God were not extraterrestrials. They were the rebellious, fallen angels and their half-human, half-angelic offspring were the Nephilim.
As detailed in our article by the same name, the Nephilim, were a hybrid race of fallen angelic beings and humans born in the time before the Great Flood. Genesis Chapter 6 provides the account:
6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 6:3 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. 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.
Now many people have debated whether the “sons of God” refers to angels or men. And this is precisely why we have to examine the Bible as a complete book and not just hang ideas on one verse. The Hebrew term for “sons of God” is B’nai Ha Elohim, which indicates that these are Heavenly beings, giving credence to them being fallen angels. Further proof comes from the children of these sons of God and daughters of men growing up to become “mighty men” and of “renown.” They were also “giants.” Something in their genetics made them supernaturally large people. And it was their fallen angelic parentage.
But again, we must keep searching the Bible to make certain of meaning. The Bible is self-confirming and one passage of Scripture can always be confirmed by another. We see the term “sons of God” next used in the book of Job. Job 2:1 states: Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.
The Hebrew term here once again is B’nai Ha Elohim. The ‘sons of God’ here are clearly Angelic beings who are presenting themselves before The Lord (in Heaven). In the Septuagint, the oldest manuscript of the Old Testament (and the text often quoted by Jesus and His Disciples in the New Testament of the King James Version), the verse from Job reads: “And it came to pass on a certain day that the angels of God came to stand before the Lord..” . And Satan is among them (and Satan himself is a fallen cherubim – a type of Heavenly being). So there should be no mistaking what the Hebrew term now means. The implication here is that the Genesis 6 account is detailing fallen angels who married human women and produced children with them. And this act was so abhorrent to The Lord that He punished them. First with the flood and then with imprisonment.
The Nephilim were Satan’s attempt to corrupt the bloodline of humanity that would eventually lead to the birth of the Messiah. Satan knew from the time of the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden that one day, a human woman would give birth to a son who would destroy him, So Satan’s main mission was to prevent the birth of this future Savior of humanity. By leading fallen evil angels to reproduce with human women, he could corrupt the genetics of humans and make the world part human and part angel, thus eliminating the chance for a “human Savior” to be born. The spread of the Nephilim was so rampant that by the time Noah was building the ark, he was one of the last true believers in God who did not have any Nephilim blood in his genealogy. This was the reason for the great flood. It was God’s solution to preserve humanity from the destructive agenda of Satan. In Prometheus, the human-alien hybrid idea plays a major role in the unfolding of the storyline.
The Nephilim were “men of renown” and literal giants, who dominated the Earth. Almost every ancient civilization on record has accounts of “the gods” coming to Earth to take human women as their wives. And their offspring were the “titans”, “heroes” or “demigods” of what society has been taught to see as “myth.” But the Bible makes it clear that these beings were very real. The resulting rampant sin and violence in society became so outrageous that God was forced to wipe out all of the creatures of the Earth except for Noah and his family, with the flood. The Bible describes Noah, who built the ark and survived the flood, as being “.. a just man and perfect in his generations” (Genesis 6:9). The Hebrew term for ‘perfect’ in this verse is “tamiym” which is a reference to health and physical condition and is the same term used for a Passover lamb that is without physical blemish. In short, Noah, in addition to being a believer in God, was 100% human. Thus he and his family were selected to stay on the ark during the flood and repopulate the world once the Nephilim were destroyed and the line of humanity that would lead to the Messiah would continue through him.
The evil angels who committed these acts were punished and sent to the abyss, or bottomless pit, where they are locked away until their final judgment (Jude 1:5-7). However, after the flood, the sinful relations resumed and Giants again returned to Earth, though in limited numbers. While the ancient tribes of Israel wandered the wilderness for 40 years, Satan had his Nephilim offspring, occupy the Promised Land that God had appointed to His nation Israel.
One example of a Nephilim in the Bible was Og, the King of Bashan, whom the Israelites defeated under the leadership of God and His servant, Moses.
3:1 Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.
3:2 And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.
3:3 So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.
3:11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man. (Deuteronomy)
Og, is described as being a part of the “remnant” of the giants. So by his time, it appears the intermingling had stopped for good. Notice that the Bible states the measurement of his bed. A cubit is equal to 18 inches and thus Og’s bed was approximately 13 1/2 feet long and 6 feet wide!
The ‘Gods’ of Ancient Times
Prior to the flood, God permitted the rebellious angels to interact with humanity. Out of their sin, they presented themselves to the world as ‘gods.’ At some point, for a reason that is not quite clear, the true God of the Bible permitted the angels a time of authority over various parts of the world:
“Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you. When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel. For the LORD’S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.” (Deuteronomy 32:7-9).
While the King James Version describes the division of the gentile nations as according to “the number of the children of Israel,” the Septuagint has the verse differently: “When the Most High divided the nations, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the nations according to the number of the angels of God.” It was a group of angels who were given authority over the nations of the world and God, the true God, started his nation, Israel from one man, Abraham. This is why the next verse distinguishes that Israel is “God’s portion.” The nation of Israel, was literally the portion of the Earth from which God would bring forth His way of salvation of humanity who had fallen into sin and under the deception Satan of the fallen angels. God was allowing humanity a choice. Thus occult practices and paganism spread across the world, while the nation of Israel brought the light of God’s law to unbelievers.
This interpretation is further confirmed when God warned the ancient Israelites against the worship of false idols: “And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven [angels], shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.” (Deuteronomy 4:19, King James Version). The Heavenly host, another term for angels, were divided and assigned over all nations as a part of God’s Divine plan for humanity and angels alike. And they abused this authority to present themselves falsely to humankind as gods.
The Bible is clear. The God of the Bible, who created the universe, is the only true God. The Bible uses the term “gods” many times to reference the fallen angels, created beings, who were and still deceive humanity into believing they are gods:
10 But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. 11 Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. (Jeremiah 10)
Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. (Galatians 4:8)
The Bible readily acknowledges “the gods” aside from the True God of the Bible. Why? Because the Biblical account is clear that the supposed “gods” of paganism were the fallen, rebellious angels. As the scriptures say, “5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. “ (Psalm 96). The word “idols” refers to the vain, emptiness of the false gods. The Septuagint, in the same verse, labels them ‘demons’.
So the clear answer to the question of ‘who were the sons of God?’ is answered by the Holy Bible. They were not extra-terrestrial entities from outer a far off solar system. They were evil, fallen angels. Interestingly, what von Daniken and the other ancient astronaut theories are forced to ignore is that even in other ancient cultures such as the Egyptians, Mayans or Incas, none of these beings are ever described as coming from another planet. In all these cultures, these beings are consistently called “gods.” The Ancient Astronaut theorists are forced to say (as is done on Ancient Aliens TV show repeatedly) “what they called ‘gods’ were really aliens.”
When it comes to even the title of von Daniken’s book, it is directly from the Bible: The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place. (Psalm 68:17). Not only does the Bible coin the phrase “chariots of God” it again explains they are angels. God is the supreme authority in the universe and angels, His creations, serve Him. And there part of their service to Him is compared to chariots.
The prophet Elijah was supernaturally taken to Heaven in the Bible before he died. In fact his death is never recorded in the Bible because his ascent to Heaven is the last time he is seen. Notice the way he is transported: “And the sons of the prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace. … And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. (2 Kings 2:5; 11)
The people of God knew that The Lord was going to supernaturally remove Elijah and take him to Heaven. There is no talk of alien beings. It was one God who was going to do it. The same God they had been praying to and worshiping all their lives. There is also no mention of Elijah going to another planet even though the Bible, in other books, mentions planets and constellations. The prophets knew that Elijah was going to Heaven.
Later on in the life of Elisha, who was mentored by Elijah, there is another encounter with angels, that travel in chariots. It happens when the wicked King of Syria was attempting to capture Elisha, since the prophet of God was thwarting all of the King’s plans to attack the Israelites:
Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about. And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.18And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha. (2 Kings 6)
Again, there is no mention of any alien race. Elisha prayed to The Lord for his servant to be able to see the spiritual beings God had sent to protect them. These beings were not extraterrestrials, they were inter-dimensional spirits. And they were in chariots. Von Daniken and the Ancient Aliens commentators must force ideas into the Bible for any of their theories to make sense. Yet throughout Scripture there is one consistent theme: God is the creator and Lord of all. He is not from another planet- He made all the planets. The angels are also His creation and are subordinate to Him. And they are all spiritual, not extra-terrestrial. The Bible also states that God lives in the “third heaven” which is above the atmosphere and above outer space. It is a spirit realm. The Alien Gospel wants to replace God with an alien race as our creator. Because once God is removed, the Bible has no credibility.
This is why Von Daniken has to attack the accuracy of the Bible. If the Bible does not have credibility, then our sin does not matter and humanity can focus on making themselves “god.” Movies like Prometheus incorporate the idea of evolution into the alien plan. As Ridley Scott stated, when discussing the plot of the film: “.. Darwin, and say if you go look at Darwin for the moment and look at the Darwinian idea, the Darwinian thesis, which is seemingly very logical. You know, you’re going from something that gradually comes to two legs and gradually here we are. Then you can go beyond that and you look more mathematically at the feasibility of how we’re able to be sitting here, right now, in this place.” To no surprise, in the movie, Shaw ends up getting into a debate with the Darwinian evolution advocate, Rayden Holloway, who is her fellow archeologist and lover in the film.
If aliens created humanity by seeding our DNA into the Earth and starting us off as primitive creatures that have turned into the “advanced humans” that we are today, then what are we evolving into for the future? As detailed in our article on the movie X-Men: First Class, the evolutionary theory at its core rests on the idea of man evolving into gods – the same deception used by the serpent to lure Eve into sin in the Garden of Eden. And when Satan and his angels return to Earth, that same false offer will still be given to humanity. In Prometheus, Robert Weyland, head of the Weyland Corporation has perfected human-like robots and compares this ability to being “like god.” David-4, the android played by Michael Fassbender, represents the next step in “evolution.” And during the expedition, Weyland’s ultimate goal of achieving “godhood” is revealed.
The Return of the Fallen
The Biblical significance of the fallen angel/Nephilim phenomenon today is that the Bible prophesies that the fallen angels will return to Earth in the end times before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Jesus stated: “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthew 24:37). The hallmark event of the days of Noah were the angelic interaction with humanity that led to the Nephilim and a sweeping judgment by God.
The book of Revelation details the two events that return the wicked angelic beings to Earth:
Revelation 9: 1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. .. 6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. 7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
The same rebellious beings that were chained in the bottomless pit after the flood, will be released for a short time for the final years before the Second Coming. The fallen angels will once again be on Earth, wreaking havoc against humanity. In addition to their strange appearance, the Bible interestingly describes the sound of their wings as “chariots.”
The next set of angels who will come to Earth are described in Revelation 12:
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth… 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 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.
In the days of Noah, the flood came from the rains from the sky and from the waters underneath the ground in the “deep.” In the end times, the flood of evil angels will come from the sky and from the deep of the bottomless pit. This is why this alien phenomenon holds relevance today for Christians. The bible states clearly that wicked angels will return to Earth and that they can masquerade, shape shift and present themselves in all sorts of deceptive appearances to trick humanity. Is it definite that they will say they are space aliens? No. But based on all the aforementioned and the way society is being conditioned for an alien arrival, it is certainly possible. What is certain is that the Bible says that in one form or another, fallen angels, led by Satan are going to return to Earth in the end times. Are Christians prepared to explain this using Bible scripture? Are pastors addressing these issues to their churches? If a UFO landed on Earth with “aliens” who stated they are going to help humanity reach a new level, would most Christians even understand what was truly going on? This is why Bible knowledge is necessary to avoid being deceived.
Demons As Aliens?
“UFO behaviour is more akin to magic than to physics as we know it… the modern UFO -nauts and the demons of past days are probably identical.” -Dr. Pierre Guerin, FSR Vol. 25, No. 1
“The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon…” – John A. Keel, “UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse”
“A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomena like poltergeist [ghost] manifestation and possession. Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomena.” – Lynn E. Catoe, UFOs and Related Subjects: USGPO, 1969; prepared under AFOSR Project Order 67-0002 and 68-0003
“We believe that the cultural preparations (or deliberate conditioning) of the world to view our alien visitors as powerful and highly evolved saviors makes the UFO phenomena the perfect motif for the Antichrist to exploit when he ascends to power. His ability to perform supernatural signs and wonders, his comprehensive plan for the peaceful unification of mankind and his connection to or origin from god-like alien entities will engender the masses to follow him into the biggest deception in history.” –Missler & Eastman, “Alien Encounters” pp. 295-296
It is Beginning and End’s belief that any sightings of “aliens” or “UFOs” on earth are times when people have been able to see inter-dimensional, spiritual beings. It is very possible that many of the people throughout history who have claimed to have seen or even encountered aliens face to face did have a supernatural encounter. But it was with a an evil angel or demonic entity. The Bible states that angels can change their appearance: “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14). Where the fallen angels and their demonic offspring once presented themselves to humanity as gods, demigods and titans, they now are presenting themselves alien spacemen.
John Keel was a legendary ‘UFOlogist’ (although he grew to dislike this term and preferred to be called a “Fortean”). Keel, a Korean War Veteran, foreign radio correspondent, Army Staffer and very successful Hollywood writer, coined the term “Men in Black” and is the author of the book, the Mothman Prophecies, which was about a small town in West Virginia that repeatedly reported sightings of a winged “alien” with red eyes. Keel, who died in 2009, spent years interviewing people who claimed to have had alien encounters or seen UFOs all over the country and reading tens of thousands of reports on UFO sightings. Not only is he considered one of the foremost UFO/alien researchers in history, a movie was made based on his work in the Mothman Prophecies. His research into aliens and UFOs was the basis for much of the plot of the TV show “X-Files” and some science fictions writers speculate that the main character Fox Mulder was based on John Keel.
What is significant about Keel (and possibly why his name is not more renowned today) is that as he continued his research into the alien/UFO phenomenon, he changed his perspective entirely. As he stated in his book acclaimed book ‘Operation Trojan Horse’:
“Throughout most of history, the manifestations of demonology and demonopathy have been viewed from a religious perspective and explained as the work of the Devil. The bizarre manipulation and ill effects described in the demonological literature are usually regarded as the results of a great unseen conflict between God and the Devil. In UFO lore, the same conflict has been observed and the believers have explained it as a space war between the “Guardians” (good guys from outer space), who are protecting our planet, and some evil extraterrestrial race. The manifestations are the same, only the reference is different.
Did ancient man misinterpret UFO manifestations by placing them in religious context? Apparently not. The literature indicates that the phenomenon carefully cultivated the religious frame of reference in early times, just as the modern manifestations have carefully supported the extraterrestrial frame of reference. Operation Trojan Horse is merely the same old game in a new, updated guise. The Devil’s emissaries of yesteryear have been replaced by mysterious “men in black.” The quasi-angels of Biblical times have become magnificent spacemen. The demons, devils, and false angels were recognized as liars and plunderers by early man. The same imposters now appear as long-haired Venusians.” (p. 215-216)
Instead of siding with the Ancient Astronaut theories, Keel’s research led him to conclude that aliens are much more like angels and demons than beings from other planets. In fact the entire thrust of the book is that demons are disguising themselves as “alien life forms” as part of a deception against humanity.Also of importance is that Keel actually interviewed people, spoke with military officials, read official government reports and did present-day research as opposed to ancient astronaut theorists who look at relics from antiquity and basically guess that there was extra-terrestrial influence. Keel also warned people against watching movies and TV shows about aliens as they are just promoting the deception. And on this point, Keel and the Bible, are correct.
The Mystery of Tubal-cain – Did Fallen Angels Share Advanced Knowledge With Humanity?
In the movie Prometheus, the team of Astronauts sent out to discover the alien race encounter a giant megalithic structure on the alien planet that closely resembles a human head, which they dub, the “face of God.” This also falls in line with the Alien Gospel. Some of the main “evidence” used by ancient astronaut theorists is the presence of enormous megalithic structures all over the world. They claim that it would have been impossible for ancient civilizations to create these structures, which often have individual stones weight anywhere from 10-80 tons and form them into the massive structures with such mathematical precision (as many ancient megaliths such as the Pyramids of Giza are positioned to correspond to celestial alignments). So the conclusion of the Ancient Astronaut theorists, of course, is that aliens helped them build it. Many of these structures do indeed defy logic. Is it possible that evil angels and demons also provided knowledge to those who chose to worship them?
Extra-Biblical sources like the Book of Enoch, plainly state that fallen angels called “Watchers” (a term used in the book of Daniel) came to Earth and shared all manner of knowledge with humans. While the Bible does not share this same account, there is one interesting passage that alludes to this idea. In Genesis chapter 4, Cain, the first son born to Adam and Eve, murders his brother Abel and as a punishment, was cursed by God and forced to be a “fugitive and vagabond” on the Earth. Cain’s who in addition to being a murderer, lied to God directly and had no repentance for his sins, started a family after his banishment. His descendants are listed and they seem to be some of the first inventors mentioned in the Bible:
17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch [please note that this is NOT the same Enoch walked with God and was taken up to Heaven]. 18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech [please note this is NOT the same Lamech was the father of Noah]. 19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. 20And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. 21 And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. 22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah. 23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. 24If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold. (Genesis 4).
The first city was built by Cain. Interestingly, the next figure who builds a city in the Bible was the evil Nimrod, the builder of the Tower of Babel and historic founder of the Babylonian mystery religions. In addition to cities, Cain’s descendants invented tent-dwelling, instruments and metal crafts (the word “artificer” means a “craftsman”). And notice that the father of the children who were these great inventors, Lamech, was also a murderer like his grandfather Cain. And revels that his crime was much worse than Cain’s (v. 24). It seems that even in the ancient times before the flood, those who made a “deal with the devil” received earthly, temporary rewards.
In the occult, Tubal-cain is revered. There is a cult of Tubal Cain and several books about this obscure Biblical figure. In the book “The Pillars of Tubal Cain”, the authors state on page 1, that “At the secret heart of the Western Mystery Tradition lies the angelic wisdom that forms true magick…. It reveals the symbolism and meaning of the previously forbidden Luciferian occult tradition concerning the Watchers, or fallen angels, and the so-called ‘Prince of Darkness’ who is revealed to really be the Lord of Light.” (p. 1).
English occultist and advisor to Queen Elizabeth I, John Dee, was said to have gone by the code name “007” as an homage to Tubal Cain (“two balls and a cane”) and used a special signature, pictured above. In Freemasonry, it is said that “Tubal Cain” is word used during initiation into a certain degree and is also the name of a secret handshake. Manly P. Hall, considered one of the greatest Philosophers in Freemasonry, stated: “When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare.” (“The Lost Keys of Freemasonry”, p. 48)
Notice there is no mention of alien life forms here sharing any knowledge. Even in occult writings, the source of special, secret knowledge in ancient times was Lucifer, the Devil. Those with advanced occult knowledge do not even take any time addressing UFO’s or aliens. They clearly attribute the source of ancient esoteric knowledge that led to the constructions of megaliths, to fallen angelic beings and Satan himself.
This should serve as a strong warning. The alien deception at its core is satanic. It is just another effort to lure humanity away from God, His Word and salvation in Jesus Christ. In describing the methods of the Antichrist, the Bible states: 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (1 Thessalonians 5). Satan will repeatedly use deception and false “signs and wonders” to trick humanity so that people will not believe in Jesus Christ and spend eternity in damnation. Notice it all says that the Satanically-empowered Antichrist will have “all power.” The manifestations will not be parlor tricks. There are going to be real supernatural events occurring from an evil source of power. Christians need to be prepared to discuss these issues with non-believers. Instead of saying aliens exists and calling them “space brothers” who may even be “free from sin” as the Vatican has stated on record, those who truly believe in Jesus as their Savior need to equip themselves with Godly knowledge and start warning people of the truth as stated in the Bible.
Who is Prometheus?
The title of the film is based on Prometheus, who according to Wikipedia: “..is a Titan, the son of Iapetus and Themis, and brother to Atlas, Epimetheus and Menoetius. He was a champion of mankind, known for his wily intelligence, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mortals. Zeus then punished him for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day. His myth has been treated by a number of ancient sources, in which Prometheus is credited with – or blamed for – playing a pivotal role in the early history of mankind.”
Prometheus stole divine fire to become a champion for humanity, sharing things that were hidden from them. In the movie, Prometheus is the name of the ship of the team sent out to find the advanced alien race that has invited them to their planet.In a viral marketing video for the movie, Peter Weyland is addressing a technology conference and provides the exact same explanation of Promtheus’ origins.
Notice the themes of the speech by Weyland: humanity evolved with help from the gods, became technologically advanced and can now be “gods” themselves. And Weyland’s secret goal in the film is to achieve immortality (and he uses a sleeper agent aboard the ship to help him accomplish this goal). According to spoilers regarding the movie, one of the crew members aboard the Prometheus steal some of the Ampule cylinders from the Engineers’ temple for scientific examination. As is the case in many science fiction films, the aliens are displeased with the way humanity has managed itself and are now going to wipe out the human race. The Engineers prepare for an all out assault on the planet Earth. However there is a rebel alien (who in the film appears humanoid), who was specifically responsible for designing human DNA and created humanity. This creator alien helps the crew of the Prometheus, by providing special alien technology to assist them in their escape. This technology is the last hope of humanity surviving the “wrath of the gods.”
Like Prometheus of mythology, a rebellious “son of god” steals hidden knowledge to take back to humanity for its liberation and evolution. Madame H.P. Blavatsky, founder of Theosophy and the inspiration for the modern New Age Movement, wrote: ” The allegory of the fire of Prometheus is another version of the rebellion of the proud Lucifer [“light-bringer”].” (‘The Secret Doctrine’, 2:237). Blavatsky was writing this as an occultist and author of ‘Lucifer Magazine” so this was not a Christian perspective by any stretch. Yet the conclusion is the same: the myth of Prometheus is just a spin on the account of Lucifer in the Garden of Eden:
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more [subtle] than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Satan’s false promise of “godhood” never came to pass for Adam and Eve. instead they became sinners for the first time, realized their shame and were banished from the Garden of Eden. God told them they would die if they ate it and not only did they eventually physically die, they became spiritually dead as sin entered their lives. But The Lord in His mercy, not only made animal skins for Adam and Eve to wear, He promised them a child who would come in the future and redeem them (Jesus Christ, whose lineage back to Adam is listed in the book of Luke). The “offer of godhood” was a lie from Satan based on twisting what God had said, and he has continued to offer that same deception in thousands of different forms through history. In the film, it is the aliens who are the “gods” and the humans who are aspiring to “be god” through ancient, hidden knowledge or the “fire of Prometheus.” This is the exact idea the movie rests on. Weyland and Vickers in the film are not just trying to reach the alien system to make money. They are seeking godhood and thus the same lie of Satan and the myth of Prometheus is carried out in the film.
Interestingly, the ‘Ancient Aliens’ TV Show’s production company is called ‘Prometheus Entertainment’.
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. (2 Corinthians 10:11)
In what will undoubtedly be a blockbuster smash hit, the Prometheus movie will continue to implant the notion in the minds of viewers that aliens, not God, are the creators of humanity. And this creation, I hear is best viewed on a fantastic Home Entertainment system but I digress. But the Bible has explained the truth behind this phenomena it is a deception by fallen angelic beings who can masquerade as beings of light if they so choose. For those who are not Christian, again please note that deceptions like the Alien Gospel will attack the Bible but then draw much of their language and basis from the Bible scriptures themselves. And note that even in occult circles, those researching the knowledge of ancient civilizations are looking to the Bible’s accounts. Why? Because the Bible is true. None of the ancient civilizations attribute supernatural events to beings from other planets. But ancient writings from all cultures are filled with references to gods, angels and hybrid offspring. Do not be deceived. This is a spiritual war and the souls of humanity are the prize. Satan and his minions will use any means to bring people away from God, to doubt the Bible and certainly to not believe in Jesus Christ. Including entertainment and media. Does this mean that it is wrong to watch any program or show about aliens? No. That is not the point of this article. The point is to show the spiritual nature behind the alien/UFO phenomenon is real and not “just a movie.” Even if you do not believe in aliens, but are distracted from God (and the fact the sins you commit matter to God and will be judged one day), the Devil is achieving his goals. Look to the Bible and find the real truth. And know that whether it is aliens, financial collapse or world war, the only protection for your soul is belief in Jesus Christ as your Savior.
By giving His life on the cross, Jesus Christ defeated Satan, the fallen angels and the demonic spirits of the dead Nephilim. And He is going to return and end the “alien invasion” of these evil spirits in the world. In the interim, Satan is trying to bring as many souls with him to hell as possible. That is why belief in Jesus Christ has to be attacked, but again get to know Jesus before rejecting Him and do not let “entertainment” dissuade you from believing that you can go to Heaven. There are good, holy angels who obey God and follow His Word. And the Bible says: “The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. “ (Psalm 34:7). Trusting in God will lead to His protection today and eternally. Instead of of using secret knowledge, God has given His Bible to the world to let the planet know that He loves every person and will freely forgive us of our sins if we seek Him.
For Christians, continue to study The Word and equip yourselves to discuss these issues. Questions about aliens, the origins of human life, the origin of the universe, evolution and others are all very valid issues for non-believers to question the bible about. The age we are living in, where scientific breakthroughs happen on an almost weekly basis, along with the mass media, can put pressure on those who believe the Bible to understand so they can explain how the Bible addresses all these questions. So it is time to step up to the challenge. A Christian does not have to convince a non-believer the Bible is true but should be able to share the Bible’s answers to these questions with Scripture and then let God do the work: “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you…” (1 Peter 3:15). And pray that people will see through the deception of the Alien Gospel and look to the true Gospel of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
