(note: due to the enormity of information on this subject and the amount of coverage I desire to address, this will more than likely be covered in a series of articles.)
U.F.O.’s and E.B.E.’s (extraterrestrial biologic entities). Are they real or contrived? Are they within the scope of reality or merely wishful thinking? If such beings do exist elsewhere in the universe, what are they like, what are their interests in us and our world, and why would they be visiting planet Earth? Are they benevolent, or inimical to the human race, or perhaps some of both?
We as the people of Earth have asked such questions for a very long time. I believe we are approaching a day – soon to come – in which we will have these answers, but I’m also convinced that they will lead to a grand deception of epic proportions!
I believe that we are living in incredible days; the future holds such events that we quite frankly wouldn’t believe if we were told about them in advance.
How many of us would have believed on Sept. 10th, 2001 that the following day, the WTC would be no more? Of course this scenario, as horrendous and dumbfounding as it was, at least fell within the realm of plausibility (it would be conceivable that a jetliner (or two, or three) could crash into some building(s) as a hostile means of attack).
And granted, what I am about to venture into here in this article is highly conjectural, I believe it holds some merit, and should be considered by all of us; its up to you the reader to determine for yourselves if I am correct regarding the merit of this conjecture.
In these articles I want to delve into Biblical texts that address these things, visit different web sites and convey the informed research and opinions of scientists such as psychologist John Mack M.D. and Jacques Vallee, French astronomer. There will be documentation and video clips as well that unveil more about this phenomenon.
UPDATE: 9- 28 -10 From UNDERSTAND The TIMES –
ALIEN or ANGELIC (Close Encounters Of The Fallen Kind)
Aliens from outer space have long been the subject of interest to those of us more modern humans; on the internet its the 2nd most popular subject of interest (the first, unfortunately being pornography).
Major Motion Pictures, television movies, docu-dramas as well as documentaries have drenched our society. As well as this, magazines about E.T.s and UFOs, and also publications of professional articles inundate institutions of learning, libraries and magazine racks and related topics for more than a century (regarding the writings of this subject).
Do we have an interest in such things? The answer is obvious.
UFO’s and aliens are mysterious and elusive, and our curious nature loves to explore (even just for fun) such notions. Our major media, particularly the movie and television industries have literally flooded our consciousness with these ‘little green men’ and their ships, both friendly versions and villianous.
Take this one for example:
“V” was such a popular series in its day, that a new series was produced! Check out V: 2009 and note the novel that this series was based on and what THAT was all about (interesting!); also consider this synopsis.
The HISTORY Channel reveals countless numbers of films, documentaries and information (945 links) that deals with this subject matter.
Yet our own modern media isn’t the only source of information about UFO’s and our potential initial encounters with them on a global scale.
While this writer doesn’t subscribe to the validity of the writings of Nostrodamus as being inspired by God, he was influenced by spiritual forces and had much to say about UFO and USO vessels and their alien pilots.
Ancient Mayan culture believed as did Native American cultures, in previous visitations from beings of another world, as do many in the Hindu religion and now Islamic and Roman Catholic leadership endorse the belief in alien life with no apparent conflict to their own religious convictions.
There is for all intents and purposes a universal acknowledgement of alien life and visitations, and these all seem to be converging to an apexial point in time on our global horizon.
I rather like what the late Chuck Missler asks about these supposed creatures from another world: “The question that should be asked is not, ‘Are they real?’ but rather ‘What are they really?’“ More with Dr. Missler later (Note: This author does not necessarily agree with all the teachings, suppositions and assertions made by Dr. Missler).
There are a few possibilities as to the nature of these things:
+ Either they are product of our own imaginings, personally and, or collectively, based upon previous mythologies, legends and even yearnings for something greater than ourselves overseeing the affairs of mankind. Ancient man had his gods; modern man has, perhaps, his E.T.’s?
+ These are actual aliens from another planet that have come to visit, study, and analyze our world as a kind of anthropological, sociological and biological scientific investigation.
+ They could be ‘Above Top Secret’ Black Ops which would appear as alien craft to those of us ignorant of such heretofore unknown technologies.
+ These beings could be quite real, but not extra-terrrestrial in origin as we would commonly use that term. They could be ‘interdimensional’ beings that are actually more mind or spirit than physical creatures (Dr. Jacques Vallee has some very interesting insights in this matter).
Sightings and stories re: beings from another world are not a modern phenomenon as I’m sure most of us are aware; legends from cultures as ancient as Sumeria, Egypt and Babylon have recorded in one form or another accounts of such visitations.
Even the Bible has something to say about visitations from non-humans who’ve ventured into our earthly domain and conducted certain interactions with the early generations of mankind. Many assume that these beings are, in fact, aliens from another planet.
As Christians we are certain of the Truth of God’s Word, and we must judge all things on this basis. Therefore it would seem both prudent and necessary to look into the pages of scriptures and see what God tells us regarding this issue:
Our first stop is in (of course) Genesis ch. 6 –
“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.
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
“And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.“
Now let’s see what Chuck Missler can tell us about these bizarre circumstances and proceding events:
“Mischievious Angels or Sethites?“
Here are a few exerpts from the above article:
“The strange events recorded in Genesis 6 were understood by the ancient rabbinical sources, as well as the Septuagint translators, as referring to fallen angels procreating weird hybrid offspring with human women-known as the “Nephilim.” So it was also understood by the early church fathers. These bizarre events are also echoed in the legends and myths of every ancient culture upon the earth: the ancient Greeks, the Egyptians, the Hindus, the South Sea Islanders, the American Indians, and virtually all the others.“
Regarding those legends and myths of every ancient culture; we know them as the various renditions of the “pantheon of the gods”, most popularly known in the Greek version, what with Zeus, Apollo, Athena, etc. which co-habitated with humans and procreated with them, creating the demi-gods such as Hercules and Achilles: half god/half humans who were proficient in martial arts and, or superior intelligence. Note that even in the Genesis account, it states that these were “mighty men of renown“.
If in fact these were normal humans, there would have been no need to create a distinct designation for their offspring and yet they are referred to in the Word of God as “nephilim“.
The term translated “the Sons of God” is, in the Hebrew, B’nai HaElohim, “Sons of Elohim,” which is a term consistently used in the Old Testament for angels,4 and it is never used of believers in the Old Testament. It was so understood by the ancient rabbinical sources, by the Septuagint translators in the 3rd century before Christ, and by the early church fathers. Attempts to apply this term to “godly leadership” is without Scriptural foundation.5
Beyond any textual doubt, these ‘sons of God’ were not a righteous lineage of man (the Sethite view) interbreeding with a morally and spiritually inferior family line. These were definitely angels, of the fallen kind.
Some would object to this idea due to the verse in Matthew which states that citizens of heaven, saved by the blood of the Lamb will be as the angels are, for they neither marry, nor are they given in marriage (MATT 22:30). This seems to suggest that angels in heaven don’t marry, but are they capable of such?
They wouldn’t rebel because these angels are holy, and obedient to God; this says nothing however of the fallen angels who disregard God’s will, and could engage in such activities.
“The Biblical term “Sons of Elohim” (that is, of the Creator Himself), is confined to the direct creation by the divine hand and not to those born to those of their own order.6 In Luke’s genealogy of Jesus, only Adam is called a “son of God.”7 The entire Biblical drama deals with the tragedy that humankind is a fallen race, with Adam’s initial immortality forfeited. Christ uniquely gives them that receive Him the power to become the sons of God.8 Being born again of the Spirit of God, as an entirely new creation,9 at their resurrection they alone will be clothed with a building of God10 and in every respect equal to the angels.11 The very term oiketerion, alluding to the heavenly body with which the believer longs to be clothed, is the precise term used for the heavenly bodies from which the fallen angels had disrobed.”
“The proliferation of these unholy unions, and their resultant unnatural offspring was a primary reason for the Flood; had these fallen angels corrupted the entire human race, the promise given to Adam and Eve in sending a Redeemer via “the seed of the woman”(GEN. 3:15) would not be able to be kept, as there would have been no ‘entirely human’ creatures on the Earth (they would have been corrupted by this interbreeding with the fallen angels).“
There was however one family line that did maintain their purity as Chuck states:
“The very absence of any such adulteration of the human genealogy in Noah’s case is also documented in GEN 6:9
‘These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God‘.“
Noah’s family tree was distinctively unblemished or “perfect in his generations”. The term used, tamiym, is used for physical blemishes.18
“There is New Testament confirmation regarding this ‘foul play’ between these fallen angels and human women recorded in 2 PETER 2:4-5 and in JUDE 1:6,7.“
“Even Peter’s vocabulary is provocative. Peter uses the termTartarus, here translated “hell.” This is the only place that this Greek term appears in the Bible. Tartarus is a Greek term for “dark abode of woe”; “the pit of darkness in the unseen world.” The allusions to “going after strange flesh,” keeping “not their first estate,” having “left their own habitation,” and “giving themselves over to fornication,” seem to clearly fit the alien intrusions ofGenesis 6. (The term for habitation, oivkhth,rion, refers to their heavenly bodies from which they had disrobed.)“
“After the flood there were nephilim as well, most notably those that inhabited Canaan, prior to Israel’s entering the land. The ten spies were sent out by Joshua to spy out the land, and eight of them came back with an evil report, stating that these inhabitants were so large that “we were as grasshoppers in their sight“.
“Whereas God judged the Earth at the first infraction of these fallen angels by wiping out their offspring and all rebellious mankind with a global flood; at this point at the onset of the conquest of Canaan, God used Israel as His Holy Gavel, shattering the inhabitants (who were given 400 yrs. to repent and refused) and the nephilim.“

“Another reason that an understanding of Genesis 6 is so essential is that it also is a prerequisite to understanding (and anticipating) Satan’s devices and, in particular, the specific delusions to come upon the whole earth as a major feature of end-time prophecy.“
“The RETURN of the NEPHILIM.”)
The Days of Noah
Perhaps the most direct prophetic reference involving these things was the peculiar warning of our Lord Jesus Himself:
“And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.“
What does that mean? He also warned:
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.“
It is interesting to note that one of the titles of Satan is “the prince of the power of the air” and that we wage spiritual warfare against those principalities in “heavenly places.”
In these last days could it be that upon the coming of our LORD in the rapture of the church, part of His judgment in “shaking the heavens” will result in a casting down from the heavenlies, and a manifestation of these evil spiritual forces, but in the form of ‘alien spacecraft’?
There are precedents as found in EZEK 1:13-16,19; 10:10-13
These were certainly not alien spacecraft, as its specifically stated that they are cherubim (the most mighty of the angelic host) similar, but not identical to those same cherubim that surround the throne of God in Revelation (REV 4:6; 5:11; 7:11).
Even so, the fact that these cherubim that Ezekiel saw seem to have a ‘alien spacecraft-like’ appearance what with their wheels within wheels and eyes round about, would suggest that angels (whether holy OR EVIL) could manifest in such ways is quite telling. More on the trans-mutational abilities of UFO’s as witnessed in many sightings with Dr. Jacques Vallee later.
Chuck states –
“Is it possible that the UFOs – and their occupants – are part of an end-time scenario?“
The Miry Clay of Daniel 2
“The famous dream of Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel Chapter 2 appears to lay out all of Gentile history until God ultimately intervenes and sets up His own kingdom.
The various metals which make up the image in the dream are well known to serious students of prophecy. Even our common expression, “the idol has feet of clay,” comes to us from this classic passage.
But what is represented by the “miry clay” in this image? It seems to be strangely mixed-but not completely-with the iron in the dream. The term “miry clay” refers to clay made from dust,10 a Biblical idiom which suggests death.)
When Daniel interprets this for us he makes an especially provocative allusion in verse 43“
“And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.“
“As he switches to a personal pronoun, they, “shall mingle themselves with the seed of men…”
The Hebrew word for mingle here is very telling: “arab” meaning to co-mingle, to mix and its based on the root word “‘arab” to braid, to traffic, meddle, engaged, occupiers.” I don’t know about you, but when I think about that word ‘braid’ I think of the double-helix of the genetic structures that make up our DNA codes!
This is extremely suggestive when viewed in light of the warning of our Lord in,“
“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.” (ostensibly directing us to look more closely at GENESIS 6).
“Just what (or who) are “mingling with the seed of men?” These would seem to refer to some beings who are not the seed of men themselves!
Could this be a hint of a return to the mischief of Genesis 6? It staggers the mind to consider the potential significance of Daniel’s passage and its implications for the future global governance.
“Are these “aliens” so prolific that they constitute a political constituency?
“Will there be UFO incidents as part of a carefully orchestrated program to lead us toward a political agenda? Or has it started already? Are the UFOs, and the increasingly widespread abductions, part of the preparations for this scenario?“
Chuck continues . . .
“There seems to be a growing concern within the psychiatric community from the strange (and far too frequent) reports from people who claim to have been “abducted” by the occupants of UFOs. These reports are too bizarre to accept, and yet too frequent-and consistent-to ignore. What is particularly disturbing is the estimate from some national polls that as much as 3% of the population may be involved!
“Perhaps the most well-known researcher in this area is Dr. John E. Mack, (We will be watching some clips from Dr. Mack in subsequent articles in this series) who is professor of psychiatry at The Cambridge Hospital, Harvard Medical School. A contributor to over 150 articles in professional (peer-reviewed) journals and a former Pulitzer Prize winner, he certainly appears to have impressive credentials.
“He has been involved in almost a hundred of these cases personally, and has shocked the professional community by declaring that he believes these beings may be real and that they appear to have an agenda to develop a hybrid race!
“At a professional conference on abductions at M.I.T., Dr. Mack asked the provocative question, “If what these abductees (now referred to as ‘experiencers’) are saying is happening to them isn’t happening, then what is?“
Could all this involve a return to the strange events of “the Days of Noah?”
Dr. Mark Eastman and Chuck Missler published a new book, Alien Encounters, which attempts to explore the Biblical implications of the increasing reports of UFOs and their occupants, and their potential prophetic significance.
In addition to the above mentioned book Alien Encounters by Missler and Eastman (which I, the author have), another book which might be of some interest to some of you is ALIEN INTRUSION by Gary Bates; I have read it, and recommend it most enthusiastically. I wrote a two part report on this book, and you can read them on The RED PILL Consortium here (Part 1 of 2).
In summary then, we have learned that angels did in fact co-habitat with human females and that their union produced hybrid species not fully human, nor fully angelic, but a weird genetic amalgam of the two.
That these activities were not limited to the pre-Flood earth, but continued in the days of the Canaan conquest; it’s very intriguing that there are no references to the genocide or extinction of these beings. And if they occured after the Flood, could Satan be employing such activities today?
The verse in Daniel ch. 2 would suggest that at some point in these Last days he would commence such operations; perhaps they have already begun?
There is among the documentations of UFO encounters, testimonies of people who claim they were not only abducted, but sexual exams and testings were performed on their bodies, and that the women were impregnated. Also, there are such documented testimonies that these offspring went full term, and that the mothers were presented with their children which appeared non-human in some respects (including some aspects such as having six digits on their hands and feet: recall your story of a famous giant/nephilim, Goliath!).
One might validly ask, after stating: the Nephilim in pre-Flood days were proliferated by Satan in an attempt to arrest the promise of God re: the provision of Redemption via “the seed of the woman”; and the same plan was incorporated in Canaan in order to prevent the children of Israel from taking conquest of Canaan. Why then, would Satan be interested in creating these hybrids in these last days?
A VERY good question, and one that we shall address in a later article in this series.
For now, let’s examine a classification for UFO/Alien encounters that was formulated by respected ufologist J. Allen Hynek
In an attempt to fit various types of UFO/alien experiences into some categorized listing, the astronomer and ufologist J. Allen Hynek created a classification system. He first introduced this terminology to the world in his book, “The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry” in 1972.
His determination was that UFO/alien encounters could be broken down into three basic types.
It is accepted that a close encounter must occur within a 500 foot range to avoid the mis-identification of conventional terrestrial aircraft or other natural phenomena. Beyond that range objects are considered to be either “nocturnal lights”, “daylight disks”, or ” visual and radar reports”.
According to Hynek’s classification system a close encounter of the first kind is the near sighting (500 foot or less away) of an unidentified flying object, odd lights or an aerial object that is maneuvering or otherwise displaying characteristics that are not possible with terrestrial technology.
A close encounter of the second kind is the sighting of a UFO that leaves some physical trace of its presence. These can take the form of either measurable heat or radiation damage on the observer or damage to the immediate terrain and its flora and fauna. Incidences of human paralysis or inexplicable frightened or agitated animals as well as interference of radio and television reception fall into this category. The phenomena of “lost time” associated with a UFO sighting is also a second kind encounter.
Due to Steven Spielberg’s famous movie, close encounters of the third kind are most well known. This encounter scenario is where the witness observes “animate beings” in associated with the sighted UFO. Hynek himself did not wish to use the term “alien” as there was no was to rule out the possibility that the beings seen were actually humans as opposed to automatically assuming they were of extraterrestrial origin.
Others have added extra classifications to this list although not all ufologists universally accept them.
Ted Bloecher added seven more potential categories although they are mostly subsets of the major classifications and three do not particularly pertain to UFO’s or aliens at all. Of the most accepted of these additional classifications is added the close encounters of thefourth kind. In the fourth close encounter category is the actual abduction of a human by alien beings.
The close encounters of the fifth kind classification was proposed by Steven M. Greer, the founder of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence. These encounters are one’s mutually arrived at with a conscious and deliberate purpose by both the humans and the aliens for the purposes of communication. These “contactee” encounters were considered to have begun sometime in the 1950’s and supposedly continue, along with the less planned encounters, to this day.

In the next article we will look at some video clips and articles from Dr. Mack and Dr. Jacques Vallee on various topics involving this subject, as well as some spurious theories which attempt to explain our origins as being extraterrestrial:
Until then . . . dare I say it?? (YEAH!)
