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
In the context of “Scientific Atheism” Satan’s seed (Gen. 3:15) could claim his hybrid human-Elohim nature is more exalted than Elohim nature alone. This clarifies how the Man of Sin can oppose and exalt himself in 2 Thessalonians 2:4, which otherwise is a self contradiction.
ὁ ἀντικείμενος καὶ ὑπεραιρόμενος ἐπὶ πάντα λεγόμενον θεὸν ἢ σέβασμα (2 Thess. 2:4 BYZ)
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 NKJ)
Commentarions disagree how this is to be translated, one cannot oppose and exalt himself simultaneously. But it “follows from the single insertion of the article … the two statements, ἀντικεῖσθαι and ὑπεραίρεσθαι, must contain something related to each other, which is summed up in a common general idea.”-Lünemann, G. (1884). Critical and Exegetical Handbook to the Epistles Of St. Paul to The Thessalonians. (P. J. Gloag, Trans.) (p. 210). Edinburgh: T&T Clark.
What “general idea” is common to all that is called God? The definition of God, what He is. By opposing the definition of God, the Son of Destruction can exalt himself above all mankind called God so that he sits as God in the Temple the Church showing [by powerful miracles] he is God.
Just as the words in Daniel’s prophecy are unsealed by end time events (Dan. 12:8-9), so also this “new definition of God” is being preached worldwide by UFO cults. It springs naturally from “Ancient Alien Theory” where all men called God or worshiped resulted from the visit of “Extraterrestrial being” who are called Elohim in the Bible.
The Seed of Satan (Gen. 3:15) will claim to be better than the “god-men Titans” of Greek mythology (Gen. 6:4). As the greatest hybrid “human-Elohim” every designed by “the Designers” he is above all called Elohim, even Yahweh God Himself.
This is confirmed in the book of Revelation. The pompous words of this mouth apply to God and all the inhabitants of heaven, all called Elohim:
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)
The hybrid human-Elohim Son of Destruction exalts himself above all called Elohim, alone worthy to be called God.
In “Scientific Atheism” or “Ancient Alien theory” God, Jesus, the angels are all extraterrestrial beings called “the Elohim”. Yahweh is an ET, a leader of some extraterrestrials.
This new definition of God changes the predicate of human governance, what is God. The Assyrian pompous mouth is attempting to change the “times and laws” upon which human governance rests. In one fell swoop our inalienable rights will vanish with our God, and the tyranny of the Beast will take its place.
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)
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”.
