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 can’t avoid crashing their spaceships. [2]

It is counterintuitive “Ancient Aliens” had any influence over the Bible because its teachings contradict premise of their existence:

1. Monotheism;
2. Creation by divine Fiat;
3. Personal relationship with God;
4. The Law of Moses prefiguring the Sacrifice of Christ for the sins of the world;
5. Exclusivity of Earth as sole inhabited planet;
6. Uniqueness of Humans made in the image and likeness of God;
7. Neither Angels or Demons are portrayed as Extraterrestrial life forms.
8. Extraterrestrials not mentioned in End of the World prophecies.
9. Extraterrestrials not found in the “New Heavens and New Earth” God will create that lasts for eternity.
10. The impossibility of Aliens correctly predicting the circumstances of Jesus Christ’s birth, life, death and resurrection centuries in advance.

This last is particularly true as it is reported Aliens have crashed their space ships dozens of times throughout history. Apparently, seeing even a few seconds into the future is beyond their ability.

This contrasts with the God of the Bible:

21 “Present your case,” says the LORD. “Bring forth your strong reasons,” says the King of Jacob.
22 “Let them bring forth and show us what will happen; Let them show the former things, what they were, That we may consider them, And know the latter end of them; Or declare to us things to come.
23 Show the things that are to come hereafter, That we may know that you are gods; Yes, do good or do evil, That we may be dismayed and see it together.
24 Indeed you are nothing, And your work is nothing; He who chooses you is an abomination. (Isa. 41.21-24 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).
