Biblical Audio Commentary – Why Aliens If No Pre-Trib Rapture?
There’s no doubt that the US Military is concerned about aliens and UFOs. The US Congress has held hearings about them, so the possibility of intergalactic life forms is disturbing to them as well. Of course, Hollywood has propagated the subject extensively and promoted the general fear that there really are dangerous entities beyond our galaxy just biding their time to attack us. Topping that off, there are numerous accounts of alien abductions and UFO sightings throughout the world.
It’s all a set-up.
Most Bible-believing Christians know that aliens from outer space are in reality demonic entities from the spiritual realm. If believers aren’t sure of this fact, they need to spend more time reading the Word of God.
The question we’re exploring today is this: Why would Satan bother to instill the belief in, and fear of, alien life forms throughout the years since at least the 1948 Roswell incident, if they weren’t going to play a significant role in the upcoming deception that will blanket the earth in the 7-year Tribulation?
Let’s think about this.
Many Christians do not adhere to the sound doctrine of the pre-Tribulation Rapture. They think that the Rapture and Jesus’ 2nd Coming take place at the same time at the end of the Tribulation, i.e. they cling to a post-Tribulation Rapture. Yes, there are others who hold to a mid-Trib or pre-wrath belief, but there seem to be fewer of them. Regarding our topic today, it doesn’t matter. All Rapture ideas other than pre-Trib have the same problem.
Only with a pre-Trib Rapture does the alien deception make any kind of sense. When Jesus appears in the clouds for His true church and snatches us from this unbelieving, Christ-rejecting world, the powers that be, i.e. the global elites led by Antichrist, must explain our disappearance. When you’ve got millions of people – many loved ones and friends – who all of a sudden have gone missing, the government has to provide some satisfactory explanation. There’s the idea of wicked, gray aliens and that of beneficent, green aliens. Using one of these two types – or both – they will be shown as the reason we Christians disappeared.
It may be that the greys took us because our harmonics distorted their ability to function properly, and they had to rid themselves of the problem. Or, perhaps the greens removed us because we harmed the beneficial vibrations of the earth, and they did the rest of mankind a favor by taking us. One way or another, the aliens that have been hovering around our planet for so long finally had to act, either in their own interests or in ours. Because humanity has been so conditioned to the UFO narrative, it will make perfect sense to the vast majority of people. It will be deception on steroids.
Now, how does the alien story line work with post-Trib and the others? There’s no mass disappearance, so the aliens can’t be blamed for that. They could just be present and run around on earth in the way the global rulers tell the tale, but to what end? Of course, one other aspect to this is that I don’t think post-Tribbers really get it as to how supernatural and awful those seven years will be. To believe that Christians will go through the Tribulation and be shielded from its effects by some mantle of God misses the point of the Trib and arises from a non-Scriptural perspective. Where does it say in the Bible that today’s true believers will enter and endure this period of judgment? Yes, Revelation speaks of Tribulation saints, but there’s no connection to the church of today. Plus, it puzzles me how post-Tribbers might even explain the passage from Paul to the Thessalonians about the Restrainer – the Holy Spirit – stepping aside AND THEN the man of perdition coming on the scene. How does that work at the end of the Tribulation? Given these issues and more, it seems to me that all the build-up through the years for instilling the possibility of a calamitous alien encounter simply fizzles out.
Thus, the only logical purpose for the build-up over the years is to explain away the pre-Tribulation Rapture of Christ’s church. If someone has a reasonable idea for why we’ve been inundated by UFO sightings and the push for accepting that there are aliens out there, please feel free to change my mind. Give it a go.
In the meantime, those of us who will be whisked up into the clouds to join our Savior and Bridegroom should probably have a discussion with those who don’t believe, so as to at least plant the idea that deception of this type is coming. Perhaps just our mentioning it will spark a thought later after we’re gone, and it might lead to their coming to the truth when everyone else around them is duped.
Look around. The signs of the Tribulation are growing greater every day. The “aliens” are coming! How much longer can it be till we go home to be with the Lord?
I can’t wait.
