I.    INTRODUCTION

      Over 15 million Americans claim to have seen a UFO. Worldwide     
there are a hundred sightings a day. There is a close encounter of the third
kind somewhere every day in addition to all the close encounters of the
first and second kind. Some of these sightings were multiple-witness
sightings, occasionally involving thousands of witnesses to one event.
Ninety percent of those who claim to have witnessed a UFO never report
their sightings. 1 Three percent of Americans claim to have been
abducted by aliens! 2 Some of these figures are several years old and
doubtless the numbers have gone up, yet even so they testify that
something important is going on. And, something very deceptive and
dangerous. The purpose of this paper is to shed some light on the dangers
associated with alien contact and show why some of these things are
happening. 

      A.   In C.I.M Outline #40, "UFOs: The New Deception," Bill Crouse  
             identified the nature and spiritually deceptive qualities of alleged   
             UFO and alien activity. Though many of these accounts are          
             frauds, hallucinations, dreams, normal aircraft mistaken for           
             UFOs, etc., many others are not explainable by natural means.      
             For many of the latter cases, Bill's paper suggests that demonic     
             involvement is a possible way to understand these encounters. 

      B.   I agree, and in this briefing outline I take the investigation one      
             step further by following these ideas out to their logical
             conclusions. This discussion is designed to answer this question,   
             "If these strange events (UFO sightings and alien encounters) and 
             are really occurring, why are they happening and what could be    
             the purpose behind them?"

      C.   For the sake of this discussion, I assumed that these events, or      
             other incidents very much like them, have happened and are still   
             happening.  This was my starting point. I cannot validate that any 
             of these events have taken place; all we can do, short of  having a 
             personal experience or other direct evidence, is sort through the   
             materials and measure them against the biblical record. 

      D.   There have been accounts of UFOs for thousands of years, but it  
              was in the late 1940s that our current phase of interest began.      
              Today we are aided in our search for the truth about UFOs by a  
              rich assortment of events and experiences and by the perspective 
              of fifty years of investigation. It is now possible, for example, to  
              see patterns not readily apparent in earlier years.  

      E.   It seems clear that Satan and his fallen angels may be somehow     
             involved in UFO sightings and alien encounters. And, I think that 
             most evangelicals who take the time to read and to think about it  
             will agree. These evil beings are obviously very effective in using  
             this means of deceiving and entrapping the spiritually naive.

      F.   What is not so obvious is that there may be a deeper and even       
             more sinister level of demonic involvement in this area. A few      
             Christian writers are now suggesting that the whole alien/UFO     
             scenario may have great eschatological (prophetic) significance.   
             That is, it may change the way you see some end-time events.       
             Intrigued? Then please read on. But, please remember, we're        
             simply trying to inform you and warn you based on the                 
             information in these books. Some of this material may be very      
             disturbing, but if any of this does come to pass, you'll hope that    
             your unsaved loved ones got disturbed enough to find out the       
             truth and come to faith in Christ. Please withhold judgment until   
             you have read the entire paper and checked the Scriptures            
             themselves. 

            [Usage note: In UFO literature, all human-like beings                    
            (humanoids) not from earth are extraterrestrials whether Satan,     
            the fallen angels, the good angels, the Lord Jesus Christ, false        
            new age Christs, spirits of all kinds, etc. The terms "alien" and
            "extraterrestrial" and "ET" are often used interchangeably.]

II.   SHOCKING NUMBERS OF PEOPLE CLAIM TO HAVE BEEN     
      ABDUCTED BY ALIENS. 

      The first accounts of alien abductions in the U.S. trickled in during      
       the early fifties. Those involved were ridiculed as mentally deranged   
       or scorned as shameless fakers. The numbers increased over the         
       years to the point that estimates of abductees run into the hundreds    
       of thousands in the U.S. and tens of millions worldwide. Some polls   
       indicate 3% of Americans believe they have been abducted by aliens.  
       3 What are we to make of all this?

III.  AN OVERVIEW OF HUMAN ABDUCTION BY ALIENS.

       The Abduction Usually the episode begins with the abductees at         
        home in bed asleep or driving in a car late at night. If they are            
        driving, they will usually see strange lights or actually see a UFO,      
        and many times, they will feel drawn to the landing site. At this point 
        there is often a temporary mental "blackout" for about two-thirds of  
        the contactees. Often these people will claim later that they are          
        "missing" several hours of time from their memory. In these cases      
        hypnotic regression is the only way to determine what happened        
        during the blackout phase because spontaneous recall of activities on 
        board an alien craft are very rare. If the encounter begins while the    
        abductees are sleeping, the first things they notice are a bright light    
        and a humming sound coming from outside. Next, they encounter     
        short (3-5 feet), hairless humanoids with gray-colored skin and          
        experience a deepening paralysis and the sensation of floating out a   
        window (or through the wall or roof) towards the waiting UFO. 4  
     
        Inside the Alien Craft When they find themselves inside the craft, the  
        abductees almost universally undergo very thorough physical              
        examinations. Also, special emphasis is placed on examining the          
        abdominal area of females and the genitalia of both sexes. Women      
        often have ovum removed for what they are told is reproductive         
        purposes. Men frequently have sperm harvested for the same              
        reasons. Occasionally, abuductees are told that these removals are      
        for various reproductive procedures and for producing hybrid             
        offspring, that is, half-human, half-alien children. Actual sexual           
        intercourse is reported in only a small percentage of these encounters. 
        Many abductees claim that small metal or ceramic implants (1 3 mm)  
        are left in their nasal cavities, in their skulls, or in other parts of their   
        bodies. Apparently, some of these implants have been surgically
        removed, but there is no proof that they have an alien source, nor is    
        their purpose known. 5

       The Alien Message to Humanity Routine communication by aliens to   
       humans is largely accomplished telepathically. Another common          
       element in these encounters is the presentation to the abductee of long 
       detailed messages on large screens inside the craft. These                     
       communications usually warn of cataclysmic events and destruction     
       coming upon the earth. Sometimes the information is blatantly             
       religious, claiming (1) that we humans were created by the aliens, (2)   
       that the aliens are trying to promote us along the road of evolution by  
       their hybrid breeding program, and (3) that mankind must unite,           
       through alien supervision, into a one-world government and a              
       one-world religion in order to survive. 6 

IV.   AFTEREFFECTS OF ALIEN ABDUCTION

       The personal reactions of victims after alien abduction or extensive      
       alien contact point out the demonic nature of these extraterrestrial       
       visitors. Abductees often have trouble sleeping, experience headaches  
       and restlessness, and many have feelings of fear, dread, or                    
       hopelessness, and other psychological symptoms that can last for         
       decades. On the other hand, a minority of the victims experience deep  
       joy and a sense of being "home" while on the craft. Some abductees     
       state that they feel "chosen" for some great purpose and become          
       evangelists faithfully sharing the message of the aliens. There is also     
       the unaccountable loss of time, and after abduction the victim's speech 
       patterns are often altered and a robot-like voice is soon evident. The    
       voice seems to come from deep inside the person, and there are           
       noticeable pauses in response to questions. The person often appears
       to be controlled, or some would say,  possessed. 7 Many get deeper    
       and deeper into the occult. The old expression goes, "Curiosity killed  
       the cat." When it comes to the occult, in general, and UFOs, in            
       particular, untempered curiosity and a lack of spiritual discernment      
       can be fatal to humans both physically and spiritually.  8

V.    A PROFILE OF ALIEN ABDUCTEES

       A 1993 study of people who had simply reported seeing UFOs             
       revealed no psychological abnormalities. In fact, their psychological     
       health was judged superior to some of the comparison groups. Among 
       those, however, who claim to have been abducted the presence of        
       certain characteristics is noteworthy, though no specific type of           
       personality stands out. "Abductee surveys have revealed that the          
       overwhelming majority of abductees have shown an interest in             
       paranormal activities, Eastern religions, and [the] New Age                 
       world-view." 9 Other common characteristics of abductees are other   
       abductees in the family, a marked openness to new and unusual            
       experiences, a highly dysfunctional family background, and                  
       victimization by sexual abuse as children. Some abductees, but not       
       all, have had several UFO sightings prior to their abduction. The fact   
       that very few born-again Christians show up among abductees is          
       instructive. 10 

VI.   THE INITIAL PURPOSE OF ALIEN ABDUCTIONS

       In warfare soldiers often "soften up" an area with artillery ahead of      
       the invasion forces.  Or, they may send in covert teams to clear            
       obstacles, stash equipment, or plant various pre-set devices.  These      
       measures are designed to lower the cost of the invasion and make it     
       go smoothly.  According to the authors of the book s referenced in      
       this paper, the initial purpose of the last forty to fifty years of UFO      
        sightings, abductions, and "messages," has been to prepare earthlings  
        for the arrival of the aliens, to make their arrival and deceitful plans    
        less frightening and more palatable to the people of earth.  These        
        efforts have been largely successful.

VII. THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THE ALIEN AGENDA

       The ultimate goal of the aliens is to deceive and mislead as many          
       people as possible in order to keep people from coming to saving faith 
       in Jesus Christ.  Step one in this process is creating a favorable            
       climate for their ideas and presence.  This is done through abductions  
       and their messages to humanity.  And, for a variety of reasons, the       
       media and popular entertainment, have helped popularize the idea of    
       extraterrestrials coming to earth to help mankind avoid disasters,         
       nuclear war, environmental calamity, etc.  

       Another step in their plan is counterfeiting biblical events.  The aliens   
       apparently have a plan to counterfeit both the Rapture of the Church   
       and the Second Coming of Christ.  Though some Christians see these  
       as occurring simultaneously, others see them as separate events.  In     
       this paper we will explore how the aliens plan to counterfeit  the          
       Rapture.  The term rapture is not in the original Greek nor in the         
       English versions of the Bible, but is from the Latin meaning "caught     
       up."  The term refers to Christ's return in the air (as distinguished         
       from His Second Coming to the earth) for believers, both living and     
       dead, who are "caught up" to be with Him.  It is also called the            
       "Blessed Hope" because proponents of this theory believe this event    
       will allow them to be in heaven with Christ while the people on earth   
       go though horrible judgments.  One of the main goals of the
       extraterrestrials according to some Christian writers is to confuse        
       people about the Rapture and explain it away by putting
       forth a scenario that seems similar yet is drastically different.  Please    
       read carefully these two passages from the New
       Testament. 

       Vs. 13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about       
       those who are asleep [have died], that you may not grieve,
       as do the rest who have no hope.  14 For if we believe that Jesus died  
       and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have         
       fallen asleep [have died] in Jesus.  15 For this we say to you by the      
       word of the Lord, that we who are alive, and remain until the coming  
       of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep.  16 For     
       the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the        
       voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in
       Christ shall rise first.  17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be     
       caught up together with them in the clouds to meet
       the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord.  18        
       Therefore comfort one another with these words (1 Thess. 4:12-18).

       Behold, I tell you a mystery;  we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be  
       changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet;   
       for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable,   
       and we shall be changed.  For this perishable must put on the               
       imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality (1 Cor. 15:51     
       53).

       Now read this passage from the book Project World Evacuation          
       written in 1993.  "The Great Evacuation will come upon the world      
       very suddenly.  The flash of emergency events will be as a lightning     
       that  flashes in the sky.  So sudden and so quick in its happening that   
       it is over almost before you are aware if its presence. . . .
       Our rescue ships will be able to come in close enough in the twinkling  
       of an eye to set the lifting beams in operation in a moment. And all      
       over the globe where events warrant it, this will be the method of        
       evacuation.  Mankind will be lifted, levitated shall we say, by the          
       beams from our smaller ships.  These smaller craft will in turn taxi the  
       persons to the larger ships overhead, higher in the atmosphere, where  
       there is ample space and quarters and supplies for millions of people." 
       (The italics are mine and indicate quoted or paraphrased material from 
       the Bible.) 11  

       The alleged source of this material tells us a great deal.  It was             
       allegedly channeled from a extraterrestrial named Ashtar, leader of the 
       Ashtar Command, a very powerful being and a prominent name in       
       UFO circles.12  This name is also familiar to readers of the Old            
       Testament, though the gender is different.  Ashtar (also Ashtaroth or   
       Ashtoreth) was the name of a Canaanite goddess of fertility.  The        
       Canaanites' vile, licentious worship of Ashtar provoked God's wrath    
       and led Him to demand their extermination by the Israelites.13   In his 
        communique Ashtar said his purpose was to save the earth from the
       same fate that blew to bits the planet Lucifer (note that name).14  Of   
       course, Lucifer is the angelic name of Satan.  It's not coincidence that 
       certain names just keep popping up. 

       According to aliens the reason for evacuating people from earth is to   
       save them from the catastrophic earth changes that are coming. "Earth 
       changes, the ETs have insisted, are caused by the presence of               
       pollution within the body of Mother Earth. And like a living organism  
       with an infection, Mother Earth needs to cleanse herself of the             
       pollution as well as the 'dark forces'
       who no longer fit in....The dark forces are a group of individuals          
       whose thought patterns are of the past."15 They are holding back the  
       earth and keeping the forces of light from evolving to the higher state  
       of consciousness. 16 The "dark forces" are Christians who must be      
       removed because their thinking is of the past; that is, they refuse to      
       obey the demonically inspired teachings of the aliens. The evil forces    
       are even prepared for questions about those who will be taken away.  

       Many of these beings who are leaving this planet at this time have        
       completed that which they came todo. It is a time of great rejoicing     
       for them. Do not feel sad about their leaving. They are going home.     
       Many are waiting to be with them again....Many beings must move      
      on, for their thought patterns are of the past. They hold on to these       
      thoughts that keep Earth held back. 17

       Remember that though this makes a good story, in actuality this event 
       is the Rapture and God is in control, not the aliens/demons. They are   
       ultimately doomed, but they will deceive many with their clever cover  
       story of UFO evacuation and Mother Earth cleansing herself. This       
      deception is one of their last desperate acts.

VIII.  SUMMARY/CONCLUSION 

         According to many well-known Christian writers and Bible teachers, 
         Satan and his fallen angels are operating under the cover of visitors    
         from outer space (extraterrestrials from other planets or as aliens in   
         UFOs) in their latest assault on humanity. Just as there was an           
         explosion of demonic activity when Christ was on earth, many Bible  
        scholars expect another eruption of demonic activity during the last    
        days before He returns. This may be that time or the beginning of it.   
        At some point Satan will be thrown to earth and realizes that his time 
        is short (Rev. 12:7 12). If this is that time or just near that time, then  
        however you breakdown prophetic events, the Rapture and the           
        Second Coming are getting very close. A Christian writer who has      
        investigated UFOs for many years writes that he knows of no case in  
        which the message of an extraterrestrial has met the conditions in 1     
        John 4:1 3 commanding us to test the spirits to see whether they         
        acknowledge that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh and is from God. 
        18  We must warn everyone we know to "have nothing to do with
        the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them" (Eph. 5:11).   
        In this paper we have tried to unmask the mysterious deeds attributed 
        to extraterrestrials and aliens and expose them as more deception by   
        the enemy of our souls, Satan and his fallen angels with a different      
        approach and some new disguises, but the same age-old deception.
