Will the Antichrist show up in a UFO and present himself as an alien as well as God? This question seems to be circulating more and more with the rapid increase in interest within the extraterrestrial realm. Many years have passed by with no real signs of other life than our own, although much evidence does strongly suggest otherwise. Almost everyone around the world is curious as to whether or not we are alone, and if we are not then when will they show up?
I personally believe there is other life as the Universe contains roughly a hundred trillion galaxies with each containing over a hundred billion stars along with the possibility of each star at least having one planet orbiting it. These calculations along with an infinite God presents the greater chance of other life beyond our own as practically common sense and knowledge.
“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” (Matthew 24:24 NKJV).
The fact that the rise of curiosity within the realm of extraterrestrials and a possible visitation in the near future, provides a great standing point for the arrival and presentation of the Antichrist himself. Now this does not mean that the Antichrist will actually be an alien from another planet, but the mimic of arrival could present a great delusion among many, even the elect.
In Biblical prophecy it presents the idea that the Antichrist will first be a political leader with good looks that are a bit different than the typical human, exceptionally strong and smarter than the average human, and an illusionary peace maker and flatterer. Once the temple is built and sacrifices continue as ancient times, the Antichrist is then suppose to go in and halt the sacrifices, present himself as God and set up the abomination of desolation. At this moment it is hard to understand how he will completely deceive the world with just good looks, intelligence, and flattering. There has to be more to the picture than what we read and I believe there is.
“And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue.” (Daniel 11:21).
Now I am not trying to add to the scriptures by no means, but rather just provide a possible theory of how it may go down. Biblical prophecy can sometimes be tricky and God only provides so much and the rest is up to us, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to understand and perceive when the time comes. I believe that God still speaks to His people today and gives some insights as to how things will go down during this time. For an example the mark of the beast and the RFID chip. Before the presentation of technology people were unsure as to how this might go down, but now by the revealing of the Holy Spirit and the technological advancements, we have a better idea.
Back on track here. The great deceiver must present himself in such a way as to deceive most of the world and even the elect to some degree. Now what better way to deceive people than to bring peace and then a little later descend in front of the temple in a giant space craft and present yourself as the creator of all things? Science fiction hoop la you say? The Antichrist is a divine being and of superior intelligence, it is possible, believe me. It is also interesting that in the book of Daniel chapter 9:27 it states he will be on the wing of abominations, indicating a possible source of flight.
“Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.” (Daniel 9:27).
Nearly everyone around the world is awaiting an arrival of either aliens or their religions “messiah.” Buddhist are awaiting their promised one, Muslims are awaiting the 12th Imam, the Jews are awaiting the Messiah, and of course us Christians are awaiting the return of Christ. Not only are the religions of the world awaiting a “savior,” but the world itself as well. The world is in a state of turmoil and much needed reconstruction, which the UN is currently working on, and yet they are even seeking “one” that can save apart from religion.
Now when you read about the return of Christ in scriptures it says that Jesus will return in the clouds and when you think of how great an imitator the devil is, you then get a better picture of how great of a deceiver it might be for him to come down from the clouds in a giant spaceship.
“Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.” (Mark 13:26).
The possibility of such an act from the Antichrist is great and we must recognize this possibility and apply it to our spiritual understanding. When we acknowledge this crazy idea as a possibility and in fact it ends up happening in this fashion, we can then know that it is the deceiver and then spread the truth to the deceived and lost during the last days. Let us be ready for all scenarios and take into account the possibility of the so called impossible. Let us expand our minds into the realm of heaven and stop thinking only with our puny, finite minds. Let us ask the Lord for guidance, wisdom and understanding during these last days to know the truth from the delusion of the devil. God bless!
