Things are getting very bizarre in alien abduction claims these days. People are getting hurt in more ways than one. People are deceived, stressed, fearful and mentally depressed because of alleged UFO “abduction” experiences. We must be prepared to help people get free from this demonic deception.
A recent episode of a TV show titled “Aliens in America” on the Destination America channel featured an interview with alien abduction claimant, Richard Rogers. Rogers claimed that he’s been abducted by aliens several times for what he calls “matrix military scenarios training.”
In a dramatic re-enactment on the TV show, Rogers is depicted as having been abducted into a room filled with people and there was a monster in the form of a giant, fierce looking man who was attacking people in the room and trying to eat the people. Suddenly a sword appeared in Rogers’s hand and he used it to attack the monster who was extremely strong but very slow moving. He slashed the monster to no avail until he moved around behind the monster and slashed his legs. There was another alleged “military training” abduction incident, involving Rogers, that was also dramatized on the show which I will not describe here.
Rogers said that he suddenly feels very sleepy in the afternoon and then lies down and sleeps and then finds himself in this virtual reality type of place where he is confronting some sort of monster. After the experience he wakes in a sweat, often weeping. Rogers, who was plainly confused about the whole thing, thought he was being abducted by aliens and trained to defend the earth.
Rogers seemed melancholy and deeply concerned. The TV show also interviewed his wife who was also troubled by the bizarre abduction experiences of her husband. I felt sorry for them.
Let me put these alleged abduction experiences in the larger context of the satanic deceptions in the age in which we live. Researchers say that there are over one million people who claim to have been abducted. Some claim to have been abducted many times and experience strange things and hear messages. Some claim to have been abducted by “reptilians” and others by “greys.” Alien abduction claims are actually a very recent phenomenon. Before the Barney and Betty Hill alleged abduction incident in 1961, no one had claimed to have been abducted. Now there are over 1,000,000 claimants. You can see how UFO alien deceptions have ramped up in the last few decades. We are truly living in the end-times just before the second coming of Christ.
UFO “abductions” and UFO cults are a major avenue of deception that must be addressed. I don’t believe that Richard Rogers or any others who claim to have been abducted were actually taken aboard a spacecraft. I believe these abductions are nothing more than demonic dreams or visions implanted in unsuspecting people. Demons can put thoughts in human minds.
The Bible describes an instance of the devil giving a vision to a person. When Christ was in the wilderness being tempted by the devil, it is written that the devil “showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time” (Luke 4:5 NASB). Christ, in His temptation experience, was given a vision of all the world’s kingdoms in a moment of time. The devil or Satan gave Christ that vision and tempted Him with it. Of course, Christ rejected the satanic temptation and He continued to live a life without sin.
I have great concern for Richard Rogers and the many other people who are given visions or dreams of being abducted. Many are so deceived that they become obsessed with their experiences and are tormented and led into false belief systems.
There are many instances of people resisting and ending abduction attempts by calling on Jesus for help. The April 2001 issue of Charisma magazine, on page 46 gives details of one such instance. Joe Jordan and Guy Malone, founders of the Christian UFO research ministry, Alien Resistance, have documented hundreds of cases of people stopping alien abduction attempts by calling on Jesus Christ. If you are confronted by demons appearing as UFOs or aliens, tell them to go away in the name of Jesus Christ. Always speak the name of Jesus Christ aloud during the confrontation. The Bible says: “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).
UFOs and aliens, whether they appear as reptilians or greys, are actually spirits. They are not flesh and blood astronauts in metal spacecraft. Many UFO researchers, even secular ones, are coming around to see that UFOs and aliens are spirits from the spiritual dimensions of reality.
The claim that UFOs are metal spaceships from Mars or other planets within our solar system was refuted when Mariner 4 took close pictures of Mars in July of 1965. Many scientists expected to see forests, grassy fields, animals and even intelligent beings on Mars. However, Mars was proven to be a cratered wasteland. All the planets beside earth in our solar system are barren. Some UFO researchers continue to claim that UFOs are metal spaceships but from planets in distant star systems.
Let me briefly explain where UFOs come from. UFO researchers are divided into two different viewpoints in explaining UFOs. These viewpoints are the extraterrestrial hypothesis and the interdimensional hypothesis. The extraterrestrial hypothesis is the claim that UFOs are metal spaceships with astronauts from planets in star systems within our own physical universe. The interdimensional view is that UFOs are nonphysical entities or spirits that travel from different dimensions and enter our universe from the unseen spiritual realm.
The interdimensional hypothesis is more consistent with the Bible and the Christian worldview because it can be inferred that the other dimensions from which UFOs travel are the same as the realm of spirit. The Bible certainly teaches about the spirit world.
Christian researchers and some secular researchers reject the extraterrestrial hypothesis and maintain the interdimensional view. Famous secular UFO researcher, Jacques Vallee, holds the interdimensional view. In studying UFOs, I’ve come to believe that we’re dealing with intelligent life not from another planet but from another dimension. It’s not astronauts from outer space but spirit beings from the realm of spirit. Malevolent UFO aliens are demons and they can disguise themselves as humanoid beings or astronauts.
I’m open to the idea that good angels can also appear as lights in the sky or as lights on earth. In the Bible, in Acts 12:7, we read of an angel appearing to the apostle Peter in light. Also remember that Ezekiel, the prophet, saw some bizarre but holy phenomena recorded in the book of Ezekiel in the Old Testament (Ezekiel 1:4-28). Angels are good spirits that inhabit other dimensions. The dimensions they inhabit are the dimensions of the spirit world. I hold to the interdimensional viewpoint.
I regard demonic UFO aliens who travel from the spirit dimensions as generally of the same category as poltergeists, hauntings, occultism, shamanism and other manifestations of evil spirits. I hold this view because the teachings that are transmitted from aliens to leaders of UFO cults are antibiblical and often lead to bizarre behavior such as the Heaven’s Gate mass suicide. Also, the horrific animal mutilations attributed to UFOs in which animals have their blood drained and have organs removed with surgical precision is further evidence of the demonic origin of UFO aliens.
Have no fear of demons appearing as flying saucers or disguised as extraterrestrial humanoid beings. Don’t be deceived by cult groups claiming New Age, extraterrestrial connections and phenomena. The Bible teaches that Christ is above all and every knee must bow before Christ who conquered sin through His death and resurrection. People have thwarted UFO abductions by calling on Jesus Christ for help.
UFO aliens tempt young people with drama and adventure in our present age of rocketry and space exploration. UFO cults lead people to spiritual ruin. UFO abduction theory is just one more thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. It must be exposed and vigorously refuted.
We must point people to Jesus Christ who came in fulfillment of over 300 Old Testament Bible prophecies written hundreds of years before His birth. No other person in all of history can match this claim! Jesus worked miracles in front of eyewitnesses and this is recorded in the Gospels of the New Testament. Miracles continue to be worked today by Christians who rely on the power of Christ.
Jesus suffered and died to take upon Himself the penalty of our sins, thus making atonement. He rose from the dead in victory to offer forgiveness of sins to all who turn to Him in repentance. Call upon Jesus Christ today to receive forgiveness of sins!
