ET PHONE ROME
We like every week to bring what we call a Prophecy Update. We show how news and trends in the world are corroborating centuries-old prophecies found in the Bible.
Do UFO’s and the suggestion there are extraterrestrials have anything to do with the last days?
They just might! John Keel was a pioneer in the field of UFOlogy. He’s credited with coining the term, “men in black.” As far as I can tell, he was not a Christian. He eventually abandoned the extraterrestrial hypothesis and concluded that flying saucers are really demons in a new disguise.
The real UFO story must encompass all of the many manifestations being observed. It
is a story of… an invisible world which surrounds us… of gods and demons. ((Cited in Extraterrestrials by Hitchcock & Overbey))
Christian apologist John Weldon writes,
There have been a number of secular researchers, even atheistic researchers, who have said, if you look at the demonological tradition throughout history, this is what we find in the realm of the UFO’s. ((ibid.))
The most viable explanation being put forth for what UFO’s and extraterrestrials really are is that they are demons and demonic manifestations.
Thus it was disturbing, to say the least, to read a November 10th article on the US News and World Report website titled, E.T. Phone Rome? Vatican Looks to Heavens for Signs of Alien Life. ((http://www.usnews.com/science/articles/2009/11/10/et-phone-rome-vatican-looks-to-heavens-for-signs-of-alien-life.html))
… the Vatican has called in experts to study the possibility of extraterrestrial alien life and its implication for the Catholic Church.
“The questions of life’s origins and of whether life exists elsewhere in the universe are very suitable and deserve serious consideration,” said the Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, an astronomer and director of the Vatican Observatory.
Funes, a Jesuit priest, presented the results Tuesday of a five-day conference that gathered astronomers, physicists, biologists and other experts to discuss the budding field of astrobiology – the study of the origin of life and its existence elsewhere in the cosmos.
Thirty scientists, including non-Catholics, from the U.S., France, Britain, Switzerland, Italy and Chile attended the conference, called to explore among other issues “whether sentient life forms exist on other worlds.”
Funes set the stage for the conference a year ago when he discussed the possibility of alien life in an interview given prominence in the Vatican’s daily newspaper.
The event snubbed proponents of alternative theories, like creationism and intelligent design, which see a higher being rather than the undirected process of natural selection behind the evolution of species.
We know from reading Bible prophesy that there will exist on the earth in the last days a global religious system that is empowered by Satan and his demons to perform all sort of signs and wonders.
A global religion, like Roman Catholicism, that is beginning to embrace extraterrestrials that are most likely demons… That’s big prophesy news.
We’re looking up, but not for an unidentified flying object. Jesus has promised to return and resurrect and rapture His church.
Once we are gone, a powerful force on earth that restrains Satan will be gone and all manner of weird deception will break out upon the planet.
Get ready, stay ready, keep looking up.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
