Do Ancient Aliens Appear in the Bible?

ancient aliens

Are God and His angels Extraterrestrials? Ancient Alien Theory claims they are astronauts from another planet that primitive humans mistook for gods. Once a theory believed only by “tin foil hatters”, it is rapidly growing in acceptance since the US military released videos confirming UFOs exist[1]:

Some have found Ancient Alien Theory so compelling they lost their Christian faith. Barry Downing was a Presbyterian Minister. He lost his faith when he was convinced Jesus was an ET. Minister Downing was not a stupid man, he has a PhD in religion and science from the University of Edinburgh, physics from Harwick College and a degree from Princeton. He was pastor of the Northminister NY Presbyterian Church, a well-established protestant denomination.

The pastor was blinded by a confirmation bias so strong he couldn’t see the fallacy of his position, the clear and incontrovertible fact ONLY God knows the future (Is. 46:9-10) and THAT puts Him infinitely above “Ancient Aliens” who clearly can’t see even a few minutes into the future. In history they have repeatedly crashed their spaceships into the earth, which they certainly would have avoided if they knew the future like God does. [2]

Furthermore, it strains credulity “Ancient Aliens” teach ideas found in the Bible. Creationism for example. Why would “aliens” want us to believe they did not “engineer life” on the planet as various contactee groups say they claim? Also, consider the animal sacrifices in the law of Moses, WHY would an “advanced alien race” command them? But these reveal in shadow the Gospel of Christ, the seriousness of sin to an impeccably Holy God and the necessity for faith and obedience—“the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith” (Gal. 3:24; John 3:14-18; Heb. 10:1-14). WHY would ET preach Sovereign YHWH God, if they are atheists as cult followers claim? Therefore, it is elementary the Law of Moses, the gospel of Christ — cannot be the “work product of aliens” as there is “no good in these truths for the aliens to obtain by having mankind believe them.”

All intelligent life acts to obtain some “good” for itself. Without a “good” to be gained, intelligent beings have no motive to act.

Therefore, as nothing “good for aliens” exists in Bible teachings, these cannot result from their acts.

As the “Super-Natural Phenomena” exists in Scripture to deliver Bible Truth, it is impossible “ET aliens” caused the phenomena. There is no “good” obtained by “Aliens” when humanity believes the doctrines of the Bible. In fact, Bible Believers are compelled to deny their existence. Therefore, there is Zero chance Aliens are the cause of the supernatural events in the Bible.

Moreover, when God appeared to Moses what happened to him could not have been accomplished by any technology:

“When I went up into the mountain to receive the tablets of stone, the tablets of the covenant which the LORD made with you, then I stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights. I neither ate bread nor drank water. (Deut. 9:9 NKJ)

All creatures eat and drink, that would include ET aliens who are said to have mouths even though “telepathic.” Compare this revelation Angels eat and drink (Gen. 18:7-8). BUT God does not, and while Moses was in God’s presence, neither did he for forty days! Only in the presence of the Creator and Sustainer of life could a man not drink water for forty days and still live! Therefore, Moses was NOT in the presence of a finite creature. He was with Yahweh God Himself!

Alas, the misled Pastor will not be the last to be deceived. Scripture predicts this strong delusion of the Antichrist will fuel a massive worldwide apostasy.


Scripture predicts a worldwide “delusion” will cause a paradigm shift in “times and law” (Dan. 7:25). The entire world will rebel against the historic concepts of God and adopt the “Scientific Atheism” of the Antichrist (Dan. 11:36-37). Everything humans call God or worship will be rebelled against, “Ancient Alien Theory” taking its place. The new religion of the Beast the foundation of the NWO:

3 Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition,
4 who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. (2 Thess. 2:3-4 RSV)

Christians ignorant of the force of the “ancient alien theory argument”, set themselves up to be its victims just like Pastor Downing. When fallen angels appear (Rev. 12:7-12) physically on earth and spaceships in the skies, because Christian leaders scoffed at the possibility; many professed Christians will discard Christianity as obsolete.

24 “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
25 “See, I have told you beforehand. (Matt. 24:24-25 NKJ)

On Judgment Day professed Christians—who followed the false Christ “Man of sin” Adonikam even after he morphed into the “Son of Perdition” Antichrist Beast (2 Th. 2:3-4)—will plead for their lives:


22 “Many will say to Me in that day,`Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23 “And then I will declare to them,`I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matt. 7:22-23 NKJ)


The Strong Delusion is already being preached throughout the earth. UFO Contactees preach it in endless variations. The following example provides the gist of it:

Raëlism teaches that an extraterrestrial species known as the Elohim created humanity using their advanced technology. An atheistic religion, it believes that the Elohim have historically been mistaken for gods. It holds that throughout history the Elohim have created forty Elohim/human hybrids who have served as prophets preparing humanity for news about their ultimate origins. Among those listed as prophets are The Buddha, Jesus of Nazareth, and Muhammad, with Raël himself being the fortieth and final prophet.-Wikipedia

No miracle worker can inspire global apostasy among all the earth’s religions. They would encounter great opposition; endless debate would stop any success. The Antichrist must have more working for him than his own deeds. Only a global event so spectacular it changes “times and law” (Dan. 7:25) moving everyone into a new paradigm, can make his rebellion a success (Rev. 6:2; 16:13-14, 16). And that must occur while mankind is reeling from global catastrophe that has overwhelmed its ability to cope, opening the door to global acceptance of what normally would be regarded with great suspicion and rejected:

2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.”
4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.
5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”
7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.”
8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. (Rev. 6:2-8 NKJ)

Some allege UFO reports are government disinformation to hide secret weapons programs. However, its impossible as no earthly government could replicate the global UFO phenomena that has been recorded throughout history. However, the idea ancient aliens are visiting the earth is Satanic disinformation and clearly has fooled everyone, including the US Government:

So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Rev. 12:9 NKJ)

Messiah to be born in Bethlehem (Mic. 5:2; Mt. 2:5-6); Worshiped by wise men and presented gifts (Ps. 72:10; Is. 60:3, 6, 9; Mt. 2:11); Infants slaughtered at birthplace (Jer. 31:15; Mt. 2:17-18); Rejected by His own (Is. 53:3; Ps. 69:8; Jn. 1:11; 7:5); Triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Zech. 9:9; Mt. 21:4-5); Betrayed by Friend for thirty pieces of silver (Ps. 41:9; 55:12, 14; Zech. 11:12; Mt. 26:14-16, 21-25) used by buy a potters field (Zech. 11:12-13; Jer. 18:1-4; 19:1-4; Mt. 27:9-10); Crucified between two thieves (Is. 53:12; Mt. 27:38); Given vinegar to drink (Ps. 69:21; Mt. 27:34; Jn. 19:34, 37; 20:25-27); Garments parted and gambled for (Ps. 22:18; Lk. 23:34; Jn. 19:23-24); Buried with the Rich (Is. 53:9; Mt. 27:57-60); To be raised from the dead quickly after death (Ps. 16:10; Mt. 28:2-8). Christ fulfilled hundreds of OT prophecies and allusions, even the most ardent sceptics admit dozens of them are incontrovertibly about Christ.

Contrast God’s impeccable knowledge of the future with “Ancient Aliens” who couldn’t foresee a few minutes into the future to prevent their spaceships from crashing into the earth. Some of these are: 1) 1897 Aurora Crash in Texas; 2) 1974 Berwyn Mountain in North Wales; 3) 1994 in Cando Spain; 4) 1974 Coyame Mexixo; 5) 1986 crash in Dalnegorsk, Primorsky USSR; 6)1965 in Kecksburg Pennsylania; 7) 1980 Rendlesham Forest in Britain; 8)1947 Roswell New Mexico; 9)1967 in Shag Harbour Canada; 10) 1908 Tunguska Russia.

In Scripture Angels are revealed to be physical beings who enter our realm of existence through a “portal” from a region of time and space in the alternate parallel dimension called “heaven”. Both the angels of God and the angels of the Devil use technology including spaceships and these war against each other everywhere, including our limited realm of existence. Angels built heavenly “New Jerusalem” which will become visible when the “MEROS” or “partial realm” of our existence is done away by the coming of the “TELEIOS” or “complete realm” of the New Heavens and New Earth (1 Cor. 13:10; Rev. 21:2).
