The Conditioning of the Masses
Here are a few quotes - the entire article is very interesting and thought-provoking:
The conditioning of the masses is taking many forms. One esoteric, but increasingly prolific, form of preparation has been the whole subject of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). I've written on this subject before (a couple times, actually), but this past week the subject entered the mainstream.
Dr. Mazlan Othman, Malaysia's first astrophysicist and head of the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa) was this week officially appointed "Space Ambassador" by the United Nations. Did you catch that? The UN -- a very official, if dubious, body -- actually has an Office for Outer Space Affairs and just appointed an ambassador to greet aliens from outer space when they arrive! You can't make this stuff up!
That's not all. On Monday, September 27, several former U.S. military officers confirmed in a press conference held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., that they had witnessed UFOs tampering with US nuclear missile control sites in 1967. These are well-respected U.S. military officers, not wacko conspiracy theorists.
With that backdrop, she dives in to the "conditioning" process:
Brannon Howse, sitting in for Jan on our Understanding the Times radio broadcast this past Saturday (Oct. 2, 2010), equated the official and increased recognition of UFOs with "religious syncretism" -- the coalescing of the one-world religion by bringing many divergent and seemingly incompatible religions together.
Brannon asked his guest, Gary Bates, author of the book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, if he saw the UFO phenomenon as laying the foundation for the antichrist. "I could not see a better explanation.
Because, in fact, most of the UFO writings -- and particularly the writings that claim to have been channeled to receivers here on the Earth -- do have an eschatology, and it seems to strongly, actually, follow the idea that people are going to be whisked away off the Earth into space ships. That sounds like the Rapture . . ." which we know is necessary in order for the antichrist to make his entrance.
Dr. Ron Carlson, president of Christian Ministries International, and Ed Decker, founder and international director of Saints Alive in Jesus, co-wrote an excellent resource book titled, Fast Facts on False Teachings. In it, they address the subject of UFOs: "What about UFOs? We don't believe their existence should be denied. There is simply too much evidence today that suggests that something is there. It's no longer whether they exist but what they are."
They go on to say, "Our own speculation is based upon the study of Scripture and the study of UFOs, and we emphasize that this is only an educated opinion. What we believe is that we are seeing the world being prepared for the coming of the antichrist on a UFO. In other words, we believe that UFOs are of a demonic realm.
...for decades now the world has been in a conditioning process to accept this as normal. Movies like The Day the Earth Stood Still, Star Wars, Independence Day and television series such as Star Trek, Babylon Five, Lois and Clark and Stargate SG-1 -- just to name a very few -- have brought society as a whole to a place where, should the unthinkable become reality, many will accept it as a matter of course. And since the phenomenon is satanic, the enemy will hold sway over the masses.
I look at this and I see just another indication that we are so close to going Home that my ears are constantly perked to hear that trumpet when it blasts! From a human perspective all of this is terrifying. But from the perspective of the child of God, it is one more piece of the end-times puzzle over which our Father has complete control.
I believe it is highly possible, if not probable that somehow, this whole "UFO story" will indeed play into end times prophecy. Nothing else makes sense. As mentioned before, it is also fascinating that the whole UFO "story" really began with the "Roswell incident" which occurred just a few months before Israel became a nation in 1948 - as did many prophetic signs. Additionally, as previously stated, the so-called "alien abductions" have very strong demonic overtones.
Only time will tell. I would normally say "we'll see", but in this case, these things may not play out until after the Rapture of the Church. So maybe we won't see the conclusion to this story. That would be just fine with me.
