The Coming Deception

The following article is just one of dozens we see now on a weekly basis. I'm sure you have seen them as well. There is massive momentum building towards the so-called alien/UFO "disclosure". It will also be used to attempt to disprove the Bible, God and creation.

 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
(2 Thessalonians 2)

For the often-ridiculed followers of ufology, the study of unidentified flying objects, there was a sense of validation when the celebrated physicist and author Michio Kaku took a break from his work on string field theory to address the Ufology World Congress here last weekend and offer some advice on how to behave aboard an alien spaceship.

Researchers have been poring over recently declassified videos shot by U.S. Navy pilots over the East Coast in 2015, showing mysterious flying objects that behave like no known aircraft. Thanks to newly updated radar systems in Navy jets, the videos have aided scientists by providing “testability” and previously unknown metrics about UFOs. “We now know they fly between Mach 5 and Mach 20 — five to 20 times the speed of sound,” Kaku said. “We know they zigzag so fast that any pilot would be crushed by centrifugal force. That they have no exhaust that we can see.” The explanations usually invoked for UFO sightings — meteors, weather balloons, even the planet Venus — can’t explain these live-action high-precision shots, said Kaku, leading to either of two possible conclusions: They are of human origin, representing a technology so cutting-edge that even leading scientists are puzzled by it. Or, he said, “maybe they are evidence of an advanced outer space civilization.”

Could they be Russian, not Martian? Perhaps, Kaku allowed, given that last year Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that “Russia had built a hypersonic flying vehicle that can zigzag.” The U.S. and China are also working on hypersonic drones. On the other hand, Kaku emphasized, “maybe they are extraterrestrial.” After all, he noted, the universe is 13.8 billion years old, while earthly science was born merely 300 years ago; on any of 4,000 recently discovered exoplanets, where life as we know it might be able to exist, alien civilizations may well have had much longer to advance their scientific and technological skills.


Though Joe Jordan’s ministry might easily be misunderstood by some Christians, his specialty in the UFO phenomenon is actually a subset of the creation vs evolution debate. Joe was initially led astray in this area by popular culture, which shows how important it is for Christians to engage the culture with sound information—regardless of how weird we might think it to be at times. As a fellow traveller in this area, Joe and I have been in a friendly symbiotic relationship for many years now. His research, which specifically deals with the claims of people believing to have been ‘abducted by aliens’, helped me expose the satanic deceptions that underpin these experiences in my book, Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection.

Prior to becoming a Christian, Joe described himself as a ‘crystal-ball-rolling new-ager’ with an interest in science fiction, which he saw as merely escapism. Although an evolutionist due to his public school education, it was not immediately obvious to him that most sci-fi and its depiction of alien life has evolutionism at its core (if life evolved on Earth it must have evolved elsewhere in a 14-billion-year-old universe).

Initially, Joe did not know much about the phenomenon. A book called UFO Crash at Roswell piqued his interest.1 It claimed to be a scientific investigation of the alleged crash of a flying saucer at Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947. Joe’s experience resonated with me, because as a young man the best-ever-selling book on the subject, The Roswell Incident, had convinced me, like many others, that the government was complicit in hiding the truth about aliens.
Now ‘hooked’, Joe wanted to know more. He visited a local UFO museum, talked with UFO researchers and read up. He was surprised to see a large array of ‘spiritual’ UFO books dealing with events like the Fatima sightings.2 Christianity is under assault from this area, because many believe that supernatural encounters and miracles in the Bible can be attributed to benevolent aliens being mistaken as angels or even God, and that these aliens may even be mankind’s creators.3

Joe quickly qualified to be a state section director and investigator with the highly respected MUFON,4 investigating claims of UFO sightings and experiences of those who claim encounters with ‘alien’ beings. At monthly MUFON meetings, Joe was strongly confronted by the spiritual paradigm of the UFO-believers. He realized that, for many, it is a full-blown religion. These ‘highly evolved aliens’ were claiming to be helping humanity evolve to a kind of enlightened ascendency into a new age. Although Joe was brought up in the church, like many youth he abandoned the idea of a biblical creator. This ‘new religion’ gave Joe a sense of spirituality, but without the accountability that the Bible demands. With no supreme creator, man can make up his own rules. Each experience is just part of one’s spiritual growth into the new age.

Around this time Joe and fellow MUFON investigator Wes Clark started their own research group called CE45 specifically to deal with alleged alien abductions or ‘Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind’6experiences. They attempted to unravel the more bizarre aspects of this phenomenon that defy scientific explanation. Experiencers record huge chunks of ‘missing time’ that cannot be accounted for; allegedly physical aliens are claimed to walk through walls; and the experiencers themselves are often taken up to the spaceship through the ceilings of their homes. MUFON and other researchers had enormous problems trying to explain the physics-defying aspects of these abduction-type experiences, which were escalating.

Joe saw the damage these were causing in the lives of the experiencers. He and Wes revisited all the cases they had investigated to see if there was something that the other investigators were missing. In the fall of 1996, Joe was working on two particularly disturbing accounts which seemed more sinister than many of the others. A Christian friend told them that they were dealing in the spiritual realm and thus needed protection. “So, I pulled out my crystals”, Joe said. “But she shared the Bible with me instead. It was the first time I’d ever heard a true gospel presentation and understood what Christianity was really all about. I confessed my sins and became a Christian.”

It was encouraging that two Christians, continents apart (I was then living in Australia), could come to the same conclusions and help each other, if prepared to be open to what the Bible actually says. Alien Intrusion recently had a chapter added. It contains a new hypothesis to try to solve what is really happening to people during such 4th and 5th-kind encounters. Joe provided feedback that this hypothesis was ‘spot on’. It meant a lot, given that he has probably counselled more experiencers than anyone else I know.
One of Joe’s cases involved a brand-new Christian called Bill D. During an alleged alien abduction he cried out “Jesus, help me!” and the encounter immediately stopped.

When Joe contacted other MUFON investigators to see if they had had similar cases, they would only agree to talk to Joe if it was ‘off the record’ for fear of their careers. The truth was they all knew of similar accounts of abductions being stopped by people praying, singing hymns or calling on the name of Jesus.

But because it was ‘religious in nature’ and not ‘scientific’, the evidence was being deliberately ignored and actually hidden. Joe’s CE4 group knew there must be more cases with which they could expose the deception. A local newspaper, Florida Today, reported on CE4’s initial findings. The story went viral via the press and internet, and suddenly, lots of people were contacting CE4 sharing similar testimonies. This research of Joe’s was pivotal in helping me and others create awareness in the Church on this widespread phenomenon.

Joe’s current ministry sees him counselling many experiencers with the aim of leading them to Christ. To date, he has worked with over 400 people who have had their ‘abduction’ episodes halted in the name of Christ (some of them don’t want to be identified). He has valuable insight into the whole UFO realm as he has seen it from two different sets of eyes—as an unbelieving new-ager, and now as a Bible-believing Christian. Like me, he found that the Bible has the answers to explain what is really happening. Moreover, the Bible also explains that non-Christians are unable to see the phenomenon for what it really is, “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Corinthians 2:14 ESV)

Joe came to that belief back in 1993, when, as a secular researcher he listened to an abduction testimony in which the “abductee” recounted how the aliens had disappeared — stopped the abduction — when he invoked the Name of Jesus.

“The more I dug deeply,” says Jordan, who had believed it such cases were extraterrestrial, “the more my view changed.”

It was supposed to be the case that abductees could not resist the aliens: once an abduction started, the victim was powerless.
But suddenly Jordan was seeing the opposite when the Name of Jesus was invoked.

The UFO investigator began collecting other examples of aliens dispelled in this manner and at last count had five hundred of them.

A number are available on a website, Alien Resistance (here), he operates with fellow Christian researcher named Guy Malone who is based at the epicenter of ufology, Roswell, New Mexico). [Photo: Joe and Guy; Jordan is on the right.]

“When I called other researchers and asked if they had come across [similar cases: where abductions halted when “Jesus” was mentioned], they all wanted to go off-the-record. They said, ‘Yes! They had come across such cases.’ Many. When I asked why (they wanted it quiet), it was for two reasons: because they didn’t know what to make of it, and because they didn’t want to ‘bring religion into it’; they feared for their scientific credibility. His conclusion: “There’s no government cover-up of UFOs; there’s a cover-up about Jesus and aliens.”

We have warned for years that UFOs seem demonic. Like evil spirits, aliens appear and disappear into thin air. They can walk through walls (if they can do that, why do they need spaceships?). Abductees are almost uniformly left with feelings of terror and dread — a bad fruit, to be certain. 
The abductions sometimes afflict a family through the generations. 
There can be the smell of sulfur.
You get the point.
As Jordan says, “In previous centuries demons took the form of leprechauns and fairies. Now it’s aliens to fit our technology and modern beliefs.”

“What is the purpose of this whole deception, the whole phenomenon?” Jordan asks rhetorically. “It always comes down to the same thing: the whole thing points to an intelligent force that wants to take our eyes away from the One True God.”

In fact, some “abductees”  are so misled that they believe aliens — not God — were our true creators (through that “hybrid” process). 
We thus see the game plan.

“I can’t put a name on who we’re dealing with,” says Joe. “What I can say is that we’re dealing with the demonic realm.
“It points to anti-God, anti-Christ.”
