There is no question that there is intelligence life out there not of the earth. The Bible calls them angels. Some are fallen angels and we read about the conflict between the angels of God and those angels that follow Satan in scripture. Satan was the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Actually the word interpreted as “serpent” “nachash” could actually mean “the shining one”.
In any case, fallen angels had a role in the fall of man and throughout biblical history they have been trying to stop God’s plan of redemption through a son of Adam. Remember that Jesus who called Himself the son of Adam came to destroy the works of the Devil (1 John 3:8). So, Jesus came to destroy the works of the Devil and his angels.
Satan and his angels will be cast out of the Heavens and given free reign on the earth for the last 3 1/2 years of the tribulation. Some think the great deception will be that the fallen angels will claim to be an advanced alien race. That may or may not be true. The deception may go beyond fallen angels pretending to be aliens. The Antichrist figure when incarnated by Satan will claim to be above everything called God (2 Th 2:4). So it seems it will not just be some deception that some advanced race has come to earth. It will be more like God and his angels have come to earth to help fight against Jehovah and his Alien forces returning to control the earth.
So they will turn truth on end. Many who are misled by alien planet X type fiction and are expecting to fight against hostile aliens probably will end up fighting against God and His angels when Jesus comes in power and glory.
Therefore, be careful. There is much teaching about an alien deception but the real deception will be from those who come to earth claiming to be the supernatural good guys. The great deception might be that the fallen angels claim to be Aliens or Gods
Vatican chief astronomer Father Jose Gabriel Funes in a long interview with the L’Osservatore Romano newspaper this week made news by saying there is a certain possibility of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, and that such notion “doesn’t contradict our faith.”
In 2005, another Vatican astronomer, Guy Consolmagno tackled this subject in a 50-page booklet, Intelligent Life in the Universe, in which he concluded that chances are better than not that mankind is facing a future discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence.
f ET life is something Vatican officials have privately considered for some time, why speak of it so openly now, in what some perceive as a careful doctrinal unveiling over the last 24 months? Is this a deliberate effort by church officials to “warm-up” the laity to ET Disclosure? Are official church publications on the subject an attempt to soften the blow before disclosure arrives, in order to help the faithful retain their orthodoxy in light of unprecedented forthcoming knowledge?
Following L’Osservatore Romano’s interview with Jose Funes, Muslim and Jewish leaders joined to say their religion could accommodate an ET reality, while a scholar for the Russian Orthodoxy excluded the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence.
Rabbi James Ruden of the American Jewish Committee says most Jews also leave open the possibility of life on other planets in their interpretation of Genesis.
Other theologians caution against connecting UFOs with demonology. They say if UFOs represent anything supernatural at all, the unidentified objects could be manifestations of good angels, while phenomenon such as so-called alien abduction is more in line with manifestations of demons. In other words, good “Watchers” observe earth from UFOs (using what one evangelical theologian recently referred to as “celestial conveyances”) while fallen Watchers such as those spoken of in the apocryphal Book of Enoch do evil.
Regardless of the position one takes on UFOs specifically, the possibility of open contact with intelligent extraterrestrial life has never been better according to those who study deep space for the Vatican.
