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. Raëlists believe that since the Hiroshima bomb of 1945, humanity has entered an Age of Apocalypse in which it is threatening itself with nuclear annihilation. It argues that humanity must find a way of harnessing new scientific and technological development for peaceful ends, and that once this has been achieved the Elohim shall return to Earth to share their technology with humanity and usher in a utopia.- Wikipedia
The premise of “Scientific Atheism” as taught in Raelism, where Satan’s seed (Gen. 3:15) can claim his hybrid human-Elohim nature is higher than the Elohim including YHWH God, clarifies how the Man of Sin can oppose God, exalt himself above God while showing himself to be God.
who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. (2 Thess. 2:4 NKJV)
Focus on three statements: The Man of Sin 1)opposes God; 2)exalts himself above God; 3) claims to be God (sitting as God…showing himself that he is God).
That is a contradictory. While one can oppose God exalting oneself over God, simultaneously claiming to be GOD is impossible. One can be something greater than “God”, but not the God just exalted over.
Therefore, “God” is figurative language meaning the “definition of God”, that is what is being “opposed.” The Man of Sin “exalts himself” as being “the new definition of God”, then by supernatural acts by the power of Satan he “shows that he is that new definition of God while seated in the Temple of God the church.”
That fits “Scientific Atheism” or “Ancient Alien theory” where God, Jesus, the angels are extraterrestrial beings called “the Elohim”. God is NOT actually God, He’s an ET, the leader of a “competing faction of extraterrestrials.
In that new construct the Man of Sin a hybrid Elohim-human “Seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15) “Son of Destruction” (2 Thess. 2:3). He is ABOVE the Elohim gods of old definition. So the Man of Sin opposes YHWH God and exalts himself claiming his hybrid nature is superior to all formerly called God. Then he does supernatural acts to “show that he is this new definition of God.”
When inferring what lay behind these details in prophecy, the legendary Sherlock Holmes might consider what else is revealed about the Man of Sin”, Seed of Satan “Son of Destruction” (Gen. 3;15):
Sherlock Holmes might ponder how one may change “times and law” which is the predicate upon which human society rests, its laws and governance by “divine right.” In other words, if the definition of what is God is changed, then “times and laws” of human society are changed.
Connecting the dots: Pompous words against the Most High = changing times and law:
He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. (Dan. 7:25 NKJ)
“Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, (Dan. 11:36 NKJ)
Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. (Rev. 13:6 NKJ)
He opened his mouth to blaspheme God as an extraterrestrial, He and all those who dwell in heaven. Heaven God’s Tabernacle is insultingly called “just another planet of competing Elohim led by YHWH.”
So Sherlock Holms would find Ancient Alien Theory the likely context causing these details in prophetic scripture. Like pieces of a picture puzzle, “Ancient Alien Theory” is a main part of the picture the assembled pieces reveal.
This fits the enigmatic “He casts God’s “truth to the ground” (Dan. 8:12).
Satan has been seeding this “strong delusion” among UFO cults for decades. A good example are the Raelians who speak of the coming “Elohim Designers” of mankind in their “Message from the Designers”.
