UFOs & The Bible?

 


Bible Passages To Consider When Examining 
The Modern Alien / UFO Phenomena

Three popular English translations are offered here for your study and comparison.

We affirm that the Bible is the inspired, infallible word of God – BUT believe that modern translations from the original languages are not inherently infallible. Since English translations vary, we strongly recommend using a Concordance and/or a Hebrew / Greek dictionary for in-depth analysis of debatable terms and topics.

Genesis 2:1
“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.”

King James Version
“Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.”

New International Version
“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.”

Revised Standard Version
The word host as used in Genesis 2:1, is defined by Strong’s Concordance (6635) as 
“a mass of persons or things especially organized for war, an army.”
 The topic of “Who Are The Hosts of Heaven?” is more thoroughly examined in the article The Host of Heaven.

Deuternomy 4:19
“And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them…” Duet 4:19

King James Version
“And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars - all the heavenly array- do not be enticed into bowing down to them…”

New International Version
And beware lest you lift up your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, you be drawn away and worship them and serve them, things which the LORD your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven.

Revised Standard Version

God gives explicit instructions not to worship nor be led astray from Him by the hosts of heaven!


Ephesians 6:12
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”

King James Version
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

New International Version
“For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness,against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Revised Standard Version

Here, we see that the church is called to wage war not against deceived humanity when they disagree with us, but most directly against evil spiritual forces responsible for deceiving people. The word “powers” as used here, is the same Greek word found in 1 Peter 3:22, specifying “angels, authorities and powers” and as in Colossians 3:10, “…the principalities and powers in heavenly places.”

We believe these “wicked heavenly hosts” are the primary basis for today’s UFO fascination and abduction reports – “wickedness (perceived abduction, sexual assault, spiritual deception) in the heavenly realms…” (Go Here for a Greek breakdown of powers, principalities, rulers, high places.) We further believe Ephesians 6:12 is a mandate to the church to “wage war” against these deceptive entities.


1 Timothy 4:1
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

King James Version
“The Spirit clearly says that in the later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.”

New International Version
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by giving heed to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,

Revised Standard Version

2 Timothy 4:3-4
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

King James Version
“For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from truth and turn aside to myths.

New International Version
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths.

Revised Standard Version

Galatians 1:8

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

King James Version
“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!”

New International Version
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed.

Revised Standard Version

2 Corinthians 11:14:15

“14) And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed* into an angel of light. 15) Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
* changes himself (KJV note)

King James Version

“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.”

New International Version

“And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as a servant of light. So it is not strange if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.”

Revised Standard Version

It’s obvious this passage is saying that even Satan’s workers (human or angelic!) pretend to be ministers of peace and goodwill. In the case of humans, this may not be intentional deception, but simply people who are deceived, deceiving others – ie, “the blind leading the blind.”

However, “transformed / masquerades / disguises” as used here is not figurative, but physical. The literal word  is “metaschematizo – to transfigure or disguise,” and has the same root as “metamorphosis,” and relates specifically to the outward physical appearance.

Quite simply, angels have the power to transform they way they appear to people (just as abductees repeatedly report their captors have the ability to do). Holy angels appeared as human often in the Old and New Testaments, and the New Testament tells us that we too may “entertain angels unaware”
(Hebrews 13:2).

Ufologists and abductees often believe that the beings we are dealing with or studying are “angelic spiritual guides,” here to help humanity, to repair the environment, to empower the individual, yada yada yada…

But their documented New Age doctrines, their sexual assaults and their gross mistreatment of humans gives them away. They are false workers, intent on our destruction.


Romans 1:21-25
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds,and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.Wherefore God gave also them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, andworshipped and served the creature more than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”

King James Version
“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools, andexchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the creator, who is forever praised. Amen.”

New International Version
“…for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals and reptiles.Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they changed the truth about God for a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”

Revised Standard Version

The emphasis here is that many people groups throughout history have turned from worship of the true God to created things – including the “hosts of heaven” in the historical Biblical sense, but more recently, to accepting the teachings of modern “aliens” that THEY are humanity’s creators, and saviours. This topic is more thoroughly examined in the online video lecture Evidence for a Spritual Understanding of the Alien Phenomena.

Our hope in posting this information, as always, is that people will learn from the Word of God that the “aliens” reported today are deceptive entities, wicked hosts and false gods who wish only to destroy those they come in contact with.   (Yes, even the tall blonde Nordics – “made to look like mortal man… and reptiles” from the scripture above. They’re playing “good cop, bad cop” people, and we’re being had.)
