Part 4

There were dark and bright spots in my teen years. I wanted to be a good kid, but after so many people telling me how horrible and rebellious teens supposedly are, I got tired of being good. No one seemed to notice that I was a "good teen," so, I became a bad teen for a while. Then, I got noticed. After doing some really stupid things, I decided I'd rather be good and not noticed than the other, so I cut it out.

The school I attended from first grade until after tenth grade was a small mountain school. It had elementary, Jr. high and high school all in the same building. I was pretty much with the same group of kids from first through tenth grade. Our class averaged 18 people or so. I always felt like most of my teachers were aggravated by me, or annoyed. The kids in school seemed to enjoy picking on me. I dreaded it when the teachers would have us all break up into groups. None of the kids wanted to be in a group with me, and I didn't know how to get into a group. I still don't, and hate when church has us break up into groups. I would then get in trouble with the teacher, because everyone else was in a group, but I was still sitting there by myself. When called on to explain my actions (or rather, non-action), here came my selective mutism, and I couldn't speak. I would then usually get yelled at or reprimanded in some way, then put into a group of kids, who would all protest that they didn't want me in their group.

Gym class was horrible. It seemed it was almost always some sport being played. I didn't know how (and still don't) to play any of those sports, and the rules were never explained. How did everyone else know how to play? When/where/how did they learn? Two kids would pick teams. I would be the last kid, with neither of them wanting me on their team. I would end up on the team who needed one more person. In volleyball, I would just stand where they put me, but was afraid to hit the ball, because I didn't know when I could, where, how, or if/when I was allowed to. I didn't want to mess anything up. In basketball, I hadn't the foggiest what to do. I'd dribble the ball, and someone would yell "she's traveling!" or something like that. What was that?! It must have been bad, because everyone would get mad at me.

There were all sorts of reasons for the kids to dislike me in school. I didn't make sense to them, and they didn't make sense to me. I'd unknowingly seem to ruin their groups and games, when I was forced to join by teachers. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what to say. It felt like everyone was in some exclusive club, where they were all given the rules manual, and had training, and they all knew what to do. I was obviously never inducted into said club. I was on the outside, looking in, and wondering what in the world they were doing, and why. I felt like I was on the wrong planet. While we all spoke English, they didn't make sense to me.

While I was constantly called "weird" and "stupid," as I got older, I did, however, get noticed by boys.

I had several boyfriends. Usually if I had a boyfriend, he was from a different school, but I did end up having a few from my school. My first boyfriend went to the same school, and was in the same class as I. I noticed he stayed away from me in school, and seemed embarrassed to be my boyfriend. Outside of school he was fine. I felt like he was ashamed of me in school. Frankly, I probably unknowingly embarrassed him. I refuse to be in any relationship with someone who is embarrassed by me or ashamed of me, so I broke it off. In the eighth or ninth grade I dated a senior. He was sweet, and I really liked his personality, but I had NO physical attraction for him. Letting him hold my hand would turn my stomach, and I'd feel bad that I felt that way. After trying to get myself to like him "that way," I finally found I just couldn't, so I broke it off, and he went a bit ballistic. It was scary, but it all ended well. There were some other boyfriends here and there, but those two stand out a bit for me.

When I was around 12 or 13, I started keeping a journal, and scheduling my days. That was the predecessor to my Home Management Binder. I listed goals and things I wanted to learn, then created plans of action to help me accomplish my goals and better myself. I also started regularly exercising. When I was an older teen, I briefly considered being a personal trainer when I grew up.

I still exercise regularly - most weeks I try to do 6 days per week.

I went to modeling school. I enjoyed runway, photo shoots, public speaking, and dancing. I still enjoy public speaking, and still do that from time to time. For the first time in my life, people told me I was pretty and smart. Unlike in the false social environment of public school, modeling school was different. I was surrounded by girls of different ages, and various teachers who were models, and really nice. There were male models there too, but most of the time we were in separate classes. I was liked. I was friends with everyone. The girls there didn't act like the girls in public school. None of us knew each other, and the slate was clean. I was comfortable, and therefore was myself, and not too introverted, like in public school. In those classes, I discovered talents I didn't know I had. I now use some of those talents to help further the kingdom of God, but I will not let my left hand know what my right hand is doing, dear reader, so I will therefore not tell you, either. Going to modeling school was the happiest time of my adolescence - the brightest spot.

When I was 16, I just could not take public school anymore. It was too much. A group of boys had dragged me into the boy's bathroom, and I literally had to fight my way out. One day, a boy grabbed my bag from me, and I threw him across a table. A girl threw huge rocks at me, and ended up clocking me in the head. I was knocked semi-silly, and was sent to the nurse's office, and then sent home for the day.

I told my parents that I could NOT stand another year at that school, but I would finish out that year. They were planning on enrolling me into another school, and I said I would try it. Well, instead, I found a secular homeschool (I still had never heard the Gospel at this point in my life) that I could do myself, via correspondence. I got a job (and was soon promoted to manager), started keeping my room nice and doing my own laundry, paid for my own car, bought my mom an answering machine (she hated answering the phone) and also paid for cable to be installed. I had shown I was responsible. I approached my dad with the information about the home school, and told him I would pay for it myself, and I really thought this was a great option for me. He looked into it, and was impressed with the correspondence home school, so he said "yes," but that he was going to pay for it, and I needed to save up my money.

So, after I finished out tenth grade, I had the privilege of being in home school.

Meanwhile, it had gotten back around to me, that a certain teacher at my old school told my class that I was a "drop out," and he used me as an example to them to stay in school. I had a lot of trouble with that teacher when in school. No matter what I did, I somehow did it wrong, and he would get all red faced and yell at me. He would pound desks, slam chairs, etc. I don't know why he always yelled at me. I must not have been reacting properly to his tirades, because he would just get madder and madder, and call me a "smart ass." One day, in yelling at me, he told me to get out. I promptly left the classroom, as directed. I headed into the bathroom, shut myself in a stall, and read until that class period was over. Later, I was summoned to the principal's office. I was in trouble, because apparently "get out," meant I was supposed to wait in the hall for him to come out and "talk" to me. Well, he didn't say that. He said "get out," so I got out. I was given detention. I didn't show for it, because I know I didn't do anything wrong. There was no punishment for ditching detention, and the whole thing was dropped.

Let that teacher spread the rumor that I dropped out of school. I didn't care, because I was free of them, either way. The door of escape from public school hell was again opened, and this time it wasn't going to slam shut. I home schooled myself through the rest of high school, and yes, I have a diploma, and went on to do some home college, as well.

Part 3

I was born with a congenital problem, involving one of my internal organs. It is not genetic, and therefore cannot be passed to my children or my future descendants. In third world countries, children die from this, so I thank the Good Lord I was born in America, where this problem can be corrected. I had years of medications, discomfort, and doctor visits. Finally, when I was 11, it was determined to fix my internal problem with surgery.

What was supposed to be a two day stay in the hospital ended up being six, because of some complications. It took a few months to heal, post surgery, and I had daily excruciating pain just about the whole time.

Some time after my surgery, when I was fully recovered and pain free, but I think before I was a teen, I fell into a deep depression. I used to get depressed off and on a lot before I got saved. My salvation didn't happen until years later. When I would get depressed, I would repeatedly say "I wish I was ---." To fill in the blank, think morbid. Because of what happened to me on a certain fateful night, I never said that phrase again...

I was in bed, and I was having that particular thought before I went to sleep. Now let me tell you - I didn't know the Gospel, I didn't know why Jesus died, but I did figure there was a God out there somewhere. Although I should have been old enough to be around the age of accountability, I was innocent still, because I never heard the Gospel at that point - AT ALL. I was clueless. Anyhow, I woke up and sat straight up. I could tell I could possibly be very deathly ill. God made me appear standing in the middle of the living room. I looked up and saw something like a floating pool of golden light in the ceiling. God's voice came from there. He asked me to think about if I really meant what I always wished when I was depressed. He said he would make that wish come true, and I could go be with Him right away, if I wanted to.

I thought it over for a moment, and thought of how sad my passing would make my parents. I said I didn't mean it, and I wanted to live. I was then back in my bed, and could tell I was healthy, and all was well. I NEVER wished that morbid thing ever again. And my bouts of depression after that weren't as bad.

That was my near death experience. The Lord gave me a reality check.

PART TWO of my story...

Much of Elementary school is a blur. I remember being put into the school counselor's office, and being tested. I was asked dumb questions, like "Candy, are you a girl or a boy?" I responded that I had thought it obvious that I was a girl, but if they couldn't tell, then perhaps I should work on my appearance. They were trying to label me with something, but my mind, personality, and reactions just didn't fit anything they knew of at that time, and as there is nothing wrong mentally with me, there's nothing mental that can be put on me. I'm different, and I'm harmless. That's okay.

I failed the ink blot test. The school psychologist wanted me to tell them completely honestly what each ink blot looked like. They all looked like trees.

What's the name of the test, where you are shown a picture, and you make up a story about it? Well, I flunked that one, too. The psychologist who gave me that particular test changed my innocent stories into perverted ones, and I told him his stories were disgusting, and I wouldn't come up with such atrocities. He responded by telling me that I spoke very intelligently, and was quite advanced and mature for my age. (Then, why did they put me in Special Ed, I wondered.)

Yes, Special Ed. You see, I was taken out of class for these therapy sessions, which my parents had repeatedly said "no" to, to the school, and then I'd fall behind on my school work. Having no friends, and being scared of my teachers (some of them were not so nice), I had no one to catch me up. So... They put me in special ed, where I spent my time reading stories to younger children. I could have and should have taken the initiative and self-taught to catch up, but I didn't care. I had no commitment. I was not in school by choice, and it really felt like a prison to me. I was just trying to make it day by day, and then trying not to think about school when I wasn't there.

Off and on through the years, I'd ask my parents if we could go to church. The answer was always "no." Mom's family was "Methodist," so mom said that's what she and I were, as well, but we never attended church. Mom's family was "Methodist," because that's what their kin were, so 'we were too, by blood.' I don't know that my mom and her family ever attended church, either. They didn't have a phone or car, because my mom's dad was an alchoholic and was often inebriated. He died before I was born - his liver gave out. My dad's side - well, that was confusing. His dad wasn't very literate, but he was a pastor. My dad was born with a cleft palette, and they believed that was a sign that my dad was devil possessed. Gee, never mind the Epilepsy medication his mom was on when pregnant with him. Hmmm. Anyhow, he was neglected and mistreated. One time, when he was very young, he got a cut on his nose. No one took care of it, and he ended up getting flesh eating bacteria, and had to have his nose surgically reconstructed. One time, his arm was broken when someone was putting his shirt on him. I believe he was somewhere around the age of 2.

Around that time (age 2), he was removed from his home, where he bounced from foster home to foster home, until he finally landed in a good one when he was 16. They are my grandparents on my dad's side. His birth parents would have nothing to do with me. One time a trusted relative took me on a road trip and vacation. My parents thought it would be good for me. I had red flags. I did not feel comfortable around this relative, and my parents couldn't understand what the big deal was. They probably thought I was being bratty. Anyhow, one of our stops was to see my dad's parents. They stayed on the opposite side of the room from me, didn't talk to me, and barely looked at me.

Meanwhile, on said trip, the 'trusted relative' was molesting me. I knew it was wrong, but I didn't know how to get him to stop. One day, I decided I was going to hurt him and run, if he touched me ever again. With a knife in my pocket, and my hand around it, I told him to NEVER touch me again, and I warned him. He backed off.

I am not scarred or at all ruined from that happening to me. I felt empowered that I made it stop, and I took control. I forgave him after I got saved, years later, and contacted him and told him so. He cried. The immense guilt he had carried all of those years must had been severe. He was happy to hear my testimony of salvation, and he proclaimed that he had a saving faith, as well. He was washed in the blood of the Lamb for his sin, and I forgave him, too. At the time of my contacting him, this relative was very sick. Several months after I told him I forgave him, his body gave out, and he died. Forgiving someone not only helps them, but it helps you more. If someone has done something bad to you, don't hold on to it. Forgive them. Even if it seems to make no difference for them, it will for you.

PART ONE: My Story (so far)

Dear reader,
I have been considering writing my story for a while now. To be completely frank, what has stopped me, is that if I’m going to do this, I’m going to be a bit vulnerable, and I don’t like feeling vulnerable. I would hope that those interested, and who read, will remember that I am a human being on the other side of this keyboard, and I am putting myself out there. I was still unsure if I wanted to do this, but then at church yesterday, the sermon ended up being about telling our stories. Here’s mine, then…

My parents were married for several years before I came along. They wanted children, and their hearts were willing to hold more than one child, but one was all the Good Lord gave them. I was an only child. My father had dark brown hair, and my mother - black. Both parents had a bit of Indian in their lineage, along with British, and perhaps a touch of German. It was a surprise to both my parents, when they first saw their little girl. I was born with red hair.

Perhaps my hair color was the first noticeable thing different about me. I am different, but I think it's in a good way.

Soon, my parents moved to another state, where my father got a better job, in the same field, but with a bigger company, and with better pay. My childhood was spent in that state. As I left babyhood and entered toddler hood, my hair changed color. I became a little blonde girl.

My hair stayed blondish until around the age of five, then it started darkening, and over several years, came to the color I have now.

We lived in a nice little mobile home park for a while. It had a pool, club house, and nice playground. We stayed there until I was around 6. One day, when I was 2, my dad was at work, and a tornado hit. My mom had no where to go, and at that time didn't have her license, or know how to drive. She watched the tornado approach, and took the best cover she could, with me, in the mobile home. The tornado jumped over our home. It destroyed the mobile homes on both sides of ours, but ours was untouched.

I have a few memories from a preschool my parents would drop me off at. I remember being served cooked spinach for the first time, and thinking it was super gross and slimy. I also remember a long haired girl taking me to use the bathroom, and her hair was straight, parted in the center, no bangs, and VERY long. I wanted long hair like that, too.

When I was around 4 years old, I remember my dad was working the night shift at his job, so most nights it was just mom and I. One night, I was awakened by some noise, and saw a tattooed, long haired man in leather, walking down the hall and yelling. He then came into my bedroom, and started rummaging through my dresser drawers. I quietly slid out of bed, and went underneath my bed to hide.

Soon, he left to another room, or outside for something. My mom ran into the room, and I came out. She had me follow her, and I hid under her bed. She laid on her bed, and arranged a cord around her, to look like she was tied up. The robbers had tied her to the bed with a vacuum cord, while they rummaged and pillaged our home. At first chance, my mom got loose, and went and got me. The robbers had a truck outside, and were loading much of my parent's possessions into the truck.

Our neighbor came out to see what was going on, and they shot him in the head, and he died on the spot. After the robbers left, mom called my dad, and the police. All through the rest of my childhood, I suspect she had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She would sleep walk at night, and scream in terror, and hit the walls. She never left her bedroom during these episodes, and they would only last a few minutes most of the time. I got used to it.

One morning, she woke up with her front tooth missing. She had no idea how that happened. I'm thinking maybe she walked into something, or fell during her sleep walk.

In kindergarten, I remember getting picked on for the first time. I don't know why, didn't understand what the girl was talking about, or why she was mean to me. We were friends, then she turned on me, just like that. I clearly remember her name, and exactly how she looked. Years later, I ran into her, after moving away, and was surprised that she was nice. I thought she didn't like me anymore. I didn't want to resume a friendship, because I didn't want her to be mean to me again. She seemed very weird to me.

The neighborhood paperboy was weird, too. One day, he pushed me down, and rode my own bike across my chest. I had no idea why he would do that, so I just laid there, and thought about how the pressure on my chest didn't hurt as badly as I would have expected. After he ran me over, I got up, and asked for my bike back. He looked at me strangely, gave me my bike, and left me alone.

A teenaged boy showed himself to me - yes, that. I turned tail and ran. I sensed that was wrong, and that he wasn't a good boy. I stayed away from him.

When I was in first grade, we moved to the Rocky Mountains, where we lived in the woods, off of a dirt road, at about 9,500 feet elevation. I LOVED it. Over the years, I learned how to carve, forage, build shelter, find water, find caves, and more. When I didn't have school, I would take off into the woods all day. I never got lost, because I would follow game trails. I had some strange encounters in the woods. One day, stones and small rocks were being thrown at me, but there wasn't any person around. I was in the middle of the woods, and felt like an animal was stalking me. I knew animals couldn't throw rocks, but I also knew there was no person there. I now believe it was a sasquatch. Many researchers claim sasquatches throw rocks at people, perhaps to be territorial.

One day, I found a shed - right in the middle of the woods. It looked like a bear tore into it, and took some food. I looked inside the shed. There was a cot, a camping toilet, canned food, and lots of guns and ammo on shelves on the wall. I stayed away from that shed, and kept it a secret. I didn't want anyone to find it and take stuff, and get hurt or in trouble.

On another day, I found an underground structure that was partially becoming exposed due to years of erosion. I couldn't find the complete door to open it, so I left it alone, but it was a fascinating find.

I found a spot once, where someone must have dumped a lot of their junk. I found working Christmas lights, old doors, and all sorts of interesting, discarded things. One day, I found a pond in the middle of the woods, that it seemed only I knew about. That became my special place.

Meanwhile, school was pure hell. It was torture. People acted weird, said things they didn't mean, and did things they said they wouldn't do. It felt like I was in a world of liars. In fact, I used to question if I somehow came from another planet. For years, that was my joke - I came from another planet - only, I often felt half serious about it. I just didn't fit in, and I had trouble deciphering people. My school peers called me "weird" all the time, but they were the weird ones. I meant what I said, and said what I meant. Why didn't they? I couldn't tell when they were telling the truth, and when they weren't. My life in public school was fraught with constantly watching my back, so as not to get a sign on my back, or gum in my hair, watching where I walked, so as not to be tripped by a foot extended out, and keeping my books and my bag or backpack with me constantly, because my stuff was often stolen and vandalized. I considered school an unsafe place, where I couldn't relax, and could trust no one.

Meanwhile, I would regularly get punished by teachers, parents of other children, and my parents, and most of the time I had no idea why. I'm sure they thought whatever I did was obvious, but I didn't know. I honestly had no idea. In my world, it looked like adults were unbalanced and dangerous. One moment, everything is fine, and the next, I am being yelled at, sent to time out, being denied treats, or getting spanked.

Certainly, sometimes I knew what I did, but a good amount of the time, it just looked to me like I was being cruely treated by various adults, and I didn't understand why. I can't explain it more than that, because that's all I perceived then, so that's all I remember now.

In later years, boys would ask me out. One of them was considered "popular." I have no idea if these were jokes or real, but I didn't trust them, so it didn't matter. My answer was "no," and to leave me alone. It didn't matter how "cute" I thought they were. They were untrustworthy.

I made a small off and on circle of friends, which usually consisted mostly or completely of boys. They weren't as weird, and usually made more sense. Girls were totally strange to me. They'd whisper in one another's ear, have strange laughs, and say something, but act opposite to what they said.

I struggled in school. If I could just read the book, and have straight forward assignments, I was fine, but the teachers would stand and yap, yap, yap, and then the assignments were to read parts of the book, then do parts of the assignments, but do this instead of that, etc. I tried, but I couldn't absorb what the teachers were saying during their lectures. Because of my distrust in the hostile environment, I ended up with selective mutism. I didn't know what that was, then. I just knew that when teachers would call on me to answer questions, or reprimand me for not asking for help with my assignments, I would be crying out inside that I couldn't talk. I was scared to death. Dangle me by my foot off of a high bridge, and I wouldn't have been more scared.

My selective mutism was ridiculous, and I knew it. I knew if I tried really hard, I could overcome it, but I chose not to. I had no interest in it - when at school. Outside of school, I was so different that I'm told I actually looked visibly different. I was relaxed and happy, and not at all mute.

One day I met a new family who lived about a half mile down the dirt road from me. I used to go to that house sometimes, because an old man used to live there, and he'd give me candy. Well, he moved, and a young family moved in. The mother was pretty, modest, and feminine, and she introduced me to her children. They were NICE. Up to that time, I had never met such nice, loving children. I asked why I never saw those children at school, and the mother said it was because they were home schooled. I had never heard of that, and asked what that was, and she happily explained it to me. Wow.

I went home that afternoon, and went up to my mom.

"Mom, will you PLEASE homeschool me?" I described the family I met. My mom said she just didn't feel like that was something she was able to do, and even though my father was a very smart man, he had to work, so he wouldn't be able to do it, either. I begged, and I cried. I saw a possible exit from the hell I was exposed to at school, but the door slammed shut. I was stuck - at least, for a while longer.

Angel and Trumpet

This article may intrigue you. I'm going to show you something that you may have already noticed, and perhaps took an interest in, or perhaps... this is something you never noticed before.

I often write about distinctions in the Bible. What I'm going to show you is a distinction, but don't worry, it's not as subtle as the "a" distinction in 1 Corinthians 11:15. This one is a bit more obvious, but still read over and not noticed by many.

This is about the rapture. I think most of us agree that the rapture happens at the sound of a trumpet, at the voice of the arch angel:

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. -1 Thessalonians 4:15-17

Now, let us turn to one of the most famous scriptures revered by pre-trib rapturists:

After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. -Revelation 4:1

Hmmm, the words "voice" and "trumpet" are in the above, so is the rapture proven pre-trib? Is this it? On the surface it can appear so, and some people seem to glom onto that with every bit of strength they have.

Now, turn to Revelation 4:1 in your King James Bible. Does the passage look like the below?

If your King James Bible is a red letter edition, and Revelation 4:1 looks like the above, then your Bible is corrupted.

Or, does Revelation 4:1 look like the below in your red letter edition King James Bible?

If it looks like the above, then rejoice, the publishers of your Bible were being honest in their red lettering.

I'll show you in a minute why this minute distinction is so important, and then all of this will pull together.

This is important, because by having or not having part of Revelation 4:1 in red lettering, it can alter doctrine. The portion of Revelation 4:1 that says "Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter" should be in red, because that was Jesus speaking to John. We know this is Jesus speaking, because it says "the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet." Let's turn to the "first voice" which John heard, which was like "a trumpet:"

I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last -Revelation 1:10-11a

The voice speaking is Jesus, as can be derived from His being the Alpha and Omega. Further reading in chapter one confirms this.

Therefore, the voice speaking in Revelation 4:1 should be in red letter, because that is Jesus speaking.

Why is this so important to doctrine? Because when red letter editions red letter everything else in Revelation spoken by Jesus, except for the portion in Rev. 4:1, then it makes one think that it's someone other than Jesus speaking in Rev. 4:1. Many pre-trib rapturists then assume the voice speaking is an angel, and then they think they see the voice of the angel and the sound of the trumpet, and then they assume Revelation 4:1 must be the pre-trib rapture.

Wrong.

Let's review our opening Scripture one more time, to refresh our memories:

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. -1 Thessalonians 4:15-17

In Revelation 4:1, the voice is not an angel, it is Jesus, and the trumpet is not the trump of God, but just a description of how Jesus' voice sounded. Further, Jesus was speaking to John, and not to the church. Some would argue that the church doesn't appear in Revelation after 4:1, and they try to argue pre-trib rapture. Friends, that argument is completely invalid, and I can prove it.

I think I have clearly established that the voice of the angel and the trump of God is not in Revelation 4:1. I can show you where it does occur, though. Here it is, plain as day:

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. -Revelation 10:7

This occurs in the below:

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. -Revelation 11:15

The voice of the angel is clear in Revelation 10:7 - "the VOICE of the seventh angel." The trump of God (see Rev. 8:2) is blown by the angel, as we see in Revelation 11:15 "the seventh angel sounded." There is the voice of the angel, and the trump of God. Reveltion 4:1 has neither, but the seventh trumpet has both.

If you follow the timeline, then we see there isn't a pre-trib rapture. It's mid-trib, and happens at the last trumpet, which is the seventh one.

Unveiling Antichrist?

The first prophecy of antichrist is in the same verse as the first prophecy of Jesus:

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." -Genesis 3:15

The seed of the woman is Jesus Christ, born of the virgin Mary. That was a literal seed. Now, what about the seed of the serpent - Satan's seed? The seed of the woman was literal, so too, then, must the seed of the serpent be.

We know there is the literal seed, and the spiritual seed of God. The literal seed is Jesus Christ. The spiritual seed are the adopted children of God - born again (born of the spirit - born from above) Christians:

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:" -Romans 8:14-16

Satan counterfeits Christ. The physical seed of Satan will be antichrist. We know this because of such scriptures as the below:

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" -2 Thessalonians 2:3

Perdition comes from the Greek "apōleia," which is related to the name Apolyon, which the book of Revelation tells us is the "angel of the bottomless pit."

Side note: Theosophist Helena Blavatsky referred to the north pole as "the pit." I believe the earth is indeed hollow, and I believe true science backs this. Halley, the discoverer of Halley's Comet, wrote a fascinating book on this. I also have articles on this in the left sidebar, should this be something you wish to research (and I highly suggest you do).

The devil also has his spiritual children, just as God has His. The devil's spiritual children:

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." -John 8:44

Now, defining antichrist - It can mean against Christ, it can mean the opposite of Christ, but it can also mean in the place of Christ. The Greek of "anti," in the word "antichrist" is "ἀντί," which means:

1) over against, opposite to, before

2) for, instead of, in place of

a) instead of

b) for

c) for that, because

d) wherefore, for this cause


You can study this out for yourself in the Greek. A great tool to use for this, is the Blue Letter Bible, which is online, and is free.

We have antichrists on the earth now, in the form of those who oppose Christ, and of those who claim to be in a position on this earth in the place of Christ, and teach doctrines at odds with what Christ taught. This is partially why the Scriptures say the below:

"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way." -2 Thessalonians 2:7

To find out who "he who letteth" is, click here.

This Mystery of Iniquity is related to Mystery Babylon, which is the woman riding the beast, as described in Revelation. Revelation chapter 17 reveals to us who this Mystery is - the Roman Catholic church.

Its popes are literally anti-christs, because they claim the title "Vicar of Christ." Vicar means a person who acts in place of another; a substitute. Therefore, if one calls themself a "Vicar of Christ," they are saying that they think they are an earthly substitute, or in the place of - Christ. That is anti (in the place of) Christ. It is also anti (opposing) Christ, because much of the teachings of these vicars have and are at odds with the teachings of the Saviour.

Now that we have some terms defined, let's follow a trail that is laid out in the Bible, which leads us to the unveiling of antichrist. We are going to discover some information about the parentage of antichrist, his religion, and where he comes from.

NOTE: The following is not at all exhaustive, and I will be adding more to it in the future.

1) "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." - Genesis 3:15

Antichrist will be the seed of the serpent - Satan, the dragon (Rev. 12 & 13, etc.)

2) "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders" - 2 Thessalonians 2:3-9

He will be the "son of perdition," and "that Wicked." His religion will be involved in the Mystery of Iniquity.

3) "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain." -Daniel 11:37-39

In this Mystery religion, he will honor the 'god of forces.' The Roman Catholic church has an observatory on Mt. Graham in Arizona. One of the telescopes there has a long name, which was given the acronymical name of "Lucifer." Another telescope there is VATT - Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope. A quick viewing of the videos linked to by the Vatican Observatory's website, shows they are all for folding evolution and the "god particle" into the Roman Catholic religion. The "god particle" could be what brings about antichrist's "god of forces," and then the glorifying of himself as "messiah" (antichrist in actuality). Time will tell.

4) Revelation 17 shows us that the religion of the tribulation will be the Mystery Babylon religion. This Mystery Babylon religion was started via Nimrod (who I believe was a Nephilim) when he founded Babylon. The Mystery Babylon religion was "christianized" by the Roman Catholic church, and this is largely why so many of their traditions and rituals have no place whatsoever in the Bible. Those traditions and rituals didn't come from the Bible, they came from Mystery Babylon. This "god of forces" will be like a new (fallen) view of God, possibly brought to light via "alien enlightenment," or some of what the Bible calls 'science falsely so called.'

5) Revelation tells us of a beast that has seven heads and ten horns. It goes on to tell us that the seven heads are seven mountains, but they are also seven kingdoms that were before the antichrist kingdom. The eighth kingdom is the beast, and the beast is personified as antichrist, and therefore antichrist is called "the beast" in Revelation.

"And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them." -Revelation 11:7

Antichrist comes out of the pit. The earth is hollow, and we see in Revelation that many devils will come out of the pit during the tribulation. For more information about the pit and hollow earth, click here.

6) The devil is a fallen angel, and the angels that rebelled against God with him, are devils/demons. These are the "sons of God" that mated with earth women and created Nephilim, such as giants, mighty ones, the renown, the six-fingered ones, chimeras, etc. These are the Titans from Greek myths. The fallen angels are recorded as "gods," "watchers," or other similar titles, in ancient manuscripts of all major ancient civilizations.

The fallen ones, the ones who came from above:

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." -Revelation 12:9

"And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven." -Luke 10:17-18

"Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels" -Matthew 25:41

The Roman Catholic church, amongst other cults and false religions, teach doctrines which originated from these fallen ones - devils:

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils" - 1 Timothy 4:1

Specific devils will be sent throughout the earth to prosthelytize the Mystery religion of the god of forces, hand in hand with (or via or in) the Roman Catholic church, during the tribulation:

"And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty." -Revelation 16:13-14

7) Signs in the sky, and lying wonders and miracles will be done, to try to get people to believe antichrist is actually the savior of the world. Antichrist himself will work miracles, and so will those with and under him:

"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders" -2 Thessalonians 2:9

Perhaps some with think this is the "Annanuki of Nibiru" come in the clouds, via spacecraft. The fallen ones may portray themselves as a peaceful alien race, perhaps claming to have seeded the earth via directed panspermia. We know that Satan is indeed the prince of power of the air:

"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience" -Ephesians 2:2

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." -Ephesians 6:12

Pagan religions of yesterday and today still build high places, and often place their idol statues on the top. Where do you think this actually orginated? Go ahead - take a guess.

8) DANGER AHEAD... The false teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture is spread from church to church, and taught as fact, when there is not one Scripture that backs this belief up. Not one. There never was a belief in any pre-trib rapture before Mary McDonald, of the Catholic Apostolic cult, came up with a pre-trib rapture theory. Darby (of the Darby Bible) took the idea and ran with it, and that is where Scofield (of the Scofield Bible) learned of the pre-trib rapture. It all continued to spread from there. Is there no rapture? Not necessarily. There is a translation, or redeeming of God's people from the earth, recorded in both Old and New Testaments, but it is CLEARLY shown to occur in the middle of the tribulation. For serious Scriptural evidence of this, click here.

Why do so many people fall for the unscriptural pre-trib rapture stance? Many just blindly believe what they've been taught, and they listen to or believe the words of man, instead of the clear Word of God. For many, belief in a pre-trib rapture is fleshly, and comes from a lack of trust in God. They don't want to fathom the idea of being here during part of the tribulation. A firm trust in God, and walking in the Spirit cures this, and replaces the fear with assurance. The false pre-trib rapture teaching is part of the end time deception:

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day {the day of Christ - the rapture, see vs. 1} shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition {this occurs mid-trib as is easily derived from other chronological scriptures}" -2 Thessalonians 2:3

Many pre-trib rapture teachers say that the very next thing on God's prophetic calendar is the rapture. That is not true. The above Scripture gives us a clear list of what has to happen before the rapture - a falling away, and the son of perdition being revealed.

This pre-trib rapture deception is perfect for Satan's plan. When antichrist, the physical seed of the devil, comes on the scene, this man will first come in peacefully (this is mentioned in both Old and New Testaments). He will eventually produce miracles, lying signs and wonders, and the world will wonder after this "peaceful" man who works these wonders. In the middle of the tribulation, he lets the cat out of the bag, and proclaims he is the messiah of the world - he claims to be god. The Bible sometimes refers to this period as "the Abomination of Desolation," and this is around the time of the rapture - this is when the son of perdition is revealed. Some pre-trib rapturists will wake up during the first half of the tribulation, and realize the rapture didn't happen, and they will dig in the Scriptures and learn the truth. Others may be deceived. They could end up believing there is no rapture at all, and that antichrist is actually Christ, or that antichrist can't be antichrist, because "the pre-trib rapture hasn't happened yet."

Friends, another lie of many churches is that it is impossible to leave or fall from the faith - to apostatize. That is NOT what the Bible teaches. The Bible says there will be apostasy in the end times, and there is today, and there was, in the past. However, the falling away will be greater during the end times. For more information about what THE BIBLE says about apostasy, click here.

The great deception is three-fold, and leads to one goal. The three fold deception in a nutshell: 1) Belief in a false pre-trib rapture; 2) Denying the tribulation and thinking that antichrist isn't antichrist, because "the rapture didn't happen yet," therefore being fooled. 3) Many will apostatize around this time.

9) It is clear that Satan kept trying to stop, or pollute the bloodline that Jesus was prophesied, in various places in the Old Testament, to come from. He created his own counterfeit false virgin birth and false saviour, in which Mystery Babylon originated (to study this, click here).

Multiple times he brought wars, or infanticide, etc. He also tried to pollute the bloodline of Jesus genetically, via his devils - the fallen angels (angels are referred to as "Sons of God" in the Old Testament) mating with earth women:

"That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." - Genesis 6:2-4

Notice the offspring was in the world in those days, "and also after that." This is why we encounter the giants after the flood, such as Goliath, Og, the Anakim, etc. The Israelites were always commanded to kill the offspring of this always-evil, unredeemable, demonic-genetic seed.

The Nephilim (the genetic-demonic/human offspring) are being created once again, via "alien abductions," where genetic material is extracted from the human victims. Not all Nephilim necessarily have to be giants. This can be tweaked with genetic manipulation. Some genes can be turned on, while others are turned off. Nephilim have infiltrated the Roman empire, and is part of Daniel's iron that is mixed with clay in Daniel chapter 2:

"And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay." -Daniel 2:43

The Roman empire never ended, it just changed. To study this further, click here.

The Nephilim who have infiltrated Roman Catholicism, which is really a front for Mystery Babylon, will "mingle themselves with the seed of men." Man is the clay of the earth. You can do a word study on the word clay in the Bible to see this. The Nephilim uses Roman Catholicism, alien abduction, new age, and other facets to mingle themselves with the seed of men in these last days.

10) We've seen that anti-christ's father is Satan, from the Scriptures we've already looked at. Who is Satan's mother? She will be human. It looks like Antichrist will be a Nephilim. To the New Agers and many pagans, the antichrist will be Matreya - half alien and half man. To the Muslims, antichrist will be the Mahdi. This antichrist will fit the description of the "coming one" for MULTIPLE religions... Except for Scriptural Christianity. Those who are saved and know their Bible will/should know better.

Antichrist's father is Satan. Antichrist (the seed of the serpent) coming out of the pit:

"And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them." -Revelation 11:7

Antichrist's mother is a human. Antichrist comes of humans on earth (note that Revelation defines the waters as the nations of the earth):

"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." -Revelation 13:1

11) Antichrist's father's lineage is the serpent - the devil. Since antichrist is likely a Nephilim, this would mean his mother would be human. Politically/religiously, what further characteristics can we get of the antichrist?

"And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority." -Revelation 13:2

We see the leopard, bear, and lion in Daniel:

"The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it." - Daniel 7:4-6

Right after Daniel gives the above description, we see the antichrist:

"After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things." -Daniel 7:7-8

If you study the book of Daniel, you'll see that the lion was Babylon, the Bear was the Medes and Persians, and the Leopard was Greece. Now, looking back at Revelation 13:2, Antichrist is like Greece, has feet like the Medes and Persians, and he speaks as Babylon. This may not tell us his physical lineage (but it may), but it may tell us what he will be like and how he will lead. He will be like a Grecian - whether in lineage I don't know, but possibly politically. Greece had various governments that ruled different parts of the empire. This is similar to the ten kings of Revelation, in the government of antichrist. Antichrist's feet will be like the bear - Medes and Persians - Islam. His mouth will be like a leopard - Babylon - Mystery Babylon - Roman Catholicism.

12) The antichrist may come out of the United Nations, the EU, the WEU, the Club of Rome, or other similar group. Or, perhaps he will come straight from Rome, and perhaps he will be a pope. We saw in Revelation that he comes out of the nations (waters), so instead of being intent on finding a guy who's number is 666, or who comes from a certain nation, it may be easier to recognize him via what he does.

13) There was, is, and will be alien deception. The cigar and saucer shaped UFOs will be here as part of the deception. After the mid trib rapture, perhaps one of the excuses given will be that aliens took certain people off the planet, because they were causing trouble, or perhaps because their "vibrations" were not in alignment with "Mother Earth." UFOs and Alien deception ties in with Mystery Babylon, and we can begin to piece the puzzle together via 1) The Nephilim in Roman Catholicism mingling with the seed of men (Dan. 2), 2) Vatican having an observatory, in which some Jesuits have been quoted as saying they hope to find and baptize aliens into "the church," and 3) The below:

NOTE: It is a flying ROLL, not scroll...

"Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits. {a cigar shaped flying object about the size of a mobile home} Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof. Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth. And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah {a bowl, like a flying saucer or flying bowl} that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth. And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman {the woman that rides the beast?} that sitteth in the midst of the ephah. And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof. Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven. Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah? And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar {another name for Babylon}: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base." -Zechariah 5

A shem, the tower of Babel, was first built in Babylon with Nimrod, the founder of Babylon and the Mystery Babylon religion. In the tribulation, we see the physical location of the root of Mystery Babylon is in Shinar, which is another name for Babylon. Meanwhile, the spiritual headquarters is Rome, as can be derived from Revelation 17.

The woman above is called "wickedness." I wonder if this is the woman that rides the beast - Roman Catholicism - which originated in Babylon, with 'father' Nimrod, and (the "queen of heaven")Ashroreth's false virgin birth to Bel.

In 2 Thessalonians 2, the antichrist is referred to as "that Wicked." WITH a capital W.

That Wicked = antichrist - this is clear

wickedness the woman - I believe could be the woman that rides the beast - Roman Catholicism/Mystery Babylon

Concluding

The UFO and alien abduction phenomena is clearly demonic in nature. Research reports from both secular and Christians sources have both admitted that Christians generally don't get abducted - it is rare. Reports also show that when someone calls on the name of Jesus, the alien-masquarading demons flee.

The pieces of Islam, Roman Catholicism, New Age, and aliens are slowly, and strangely coming together as the day of Christ, and then the day of the Lord, draws closer. There were Nephilim in the days of Noah, and there will be again, before Jesus comes back:

"But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." -Matthew 24:37

"There were giants {Nephilim} in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." -Genesis 6:4

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." -Genesis 3:15

"And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay." -Daniel 2:43

"And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth." -Zechariah 5:6

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" -2 Thessalonians 2:3

"And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them." -Revelation 11:7

An Interesting Thought, Before Ending This Article

There have been three main "alien" types identified through the centuries and in modern times. They are: the Reptilians, the Insectoids, and the Nordics. It can be argued that the Grays fall under the heading of Reptilians, but could also be a form of Nephilim (they have grayish, reptilian skin, and also have six toes and six fingers per foot and hand). For those versed in the Bible, we know these "aliens" are nothing more than devils, and that devils are fallen angels, who can alter their form, and are not limited to the three dimensions we are.

Ponder this:

Reptilians:

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." -Revelation 12:9

Insectoids:

"And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power." -Revelation 9:2-3

Nordics (often described as giants, or very tall):

"There were giants {AKA - Nephilim} in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." -Genesis 6:4

The Truth About Aliens

The Bible is a supernatural book, and tells us all we need to know about the spirit world. All things were created by God, including what some people refer to as aliens. These aliens have been visiting our world since it began. This is why we see ancient Sumerian and Babylonian tablets depicting things that look like today's description of UFOs from eyewitnesses. These depictions don't appear just in Sumerian and Babylonian writings, but in ancient drawings from all major civilizations.

These aliens are fallen angels. Lucifer was a mighty angel before God, but then he became prideful, and as we know, 'pride cometh before the fall.' You can read of Lucifer's fall in Isaiah 14:12-15, Ezekiel 28:13-17.

Jesus beheld Satan fall:

"And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven." -Luke 10:18

In the fall, 1/3 of the angels sided with the angel Lucifer (now Satan, the devil). They still have access to the third heaven, to present themselves before God, but in the Tribulation, they will lose access to the third heaven:

"And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born." -Revelation 12:4

"9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." -Revelation 12:9

Until the above happens, the 1/3 fallen angels, including Satan, can still present themselves before God in the third heaven:

"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it." -Job 1:6-7

These fallen ones, through history, have appeared before men, claiming to be gods, or aliens from outer space. They tweaked human DNA in Genesis 6:

"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." -Genesis 6:4

Some believe the 'they' in Daniel 2 is the fallen ones, what some call aliens:

"And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay." -Daniel 2:43

These fallen ones not only deceive man via supposed UFOs and "visitations," but also via devil possession. "Devil" means any of the fallen angels. "The devil" means Satan. Some believe that the fallen angels are different from devils. I disagree. In the Bible, Satan is also referred to as the devil. If Satan, the lead fallen angel is THE devil, then it would make perfect sense that the angels that fell with him are devils.

The devils deceive men in many ways. Below are a list of some of the ways:

False Teachings

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;" - 1 Timothy 4:1

SPIRITUAL wickedness in high places

Some believe that the major governments of the world have been in contact with aliens, but that it is kept secret. They have, but these aliens are devils, as there are no aliens but devils.

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." -Ephesians 6:12

Devil Possessions

"When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick" -Matthew 8:16

False gods

"They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not." -Deuteronomy 32:17

Alien Deception

In Genesis 6:1-8 some of the fallen ones combined their genetic code with women and created giants, etc. The Babylonians refer to angels (fallen and unfallen) as "watchers:"

"This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men." -Daniel 4:17

The fallen ones are referred to as "watchers," "gods," "wise ones from above," and more, by many ancient cultures around the world. These beings taught the ancient certain technologies, medical knowledge, and more. This is all recorded in ancient tablets found all over the world.

These "watchers" are viewed more today as aliens who are watching us, waiting for us to be ready for more "enlightenment."

There is a certain chapter in the Bible that has been interpreted one way, but that interpretation may be wrong. Think about Zechariah chapter 5. What comes to my mind is the "Flying Scroll." I did a double take in a Bible study today, because it doesn't say a "flying scroll", it says a "flying roll."

The Hebrew word the KJV translators translated as "scroll" in the O.T. was "cepher," pronounced say-fer. Cepher means "a book." The word 'book' in the O.T. Hebrew is also translated from cepher. Now let's take a look at the flying roll verse in the Scriptures:

"Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll." -Zechariah 5:1

The word "roll" is NOT from the Hebrew word cepher, as 'scroll,' and 'book' are. 'Roll' is translated from the Hebrew word "megillah" which is pronounced meg-il-lah.

Megillah means "a book rolled together." If the flying roll is supposed to be a flying SCroll, then why wasn't the Hebrew word Cepher used (which is related to our English word cypher)? Cepher is used over and over again in the O.T. and translated as scroll or book.

The Hebrew word Megillah is translated as 'roll' in the Bible 20 times, and the word 'volume' once. Megillah is never translated as the word "scroll" by the King James translators.

While cepher (scroll) can be a masculine OR feminine noun, the word megillah 'roll' is only a feminine noun. Note: Notice the feminine spirit beings also mentioned in Zechariah chapter five.

It is clear that the flying roll is indeed a roll (such as a rolled up book) but not a scroll. I believe that if it were a flying scroll, the Hebrew word cepher would have been used, instead of the feminine noun megillah.

The classic interpretation of Zechariah five, is that the flying roll is a flying scroll of the Word of God. I don't think this is the case, as it's not a flying scroll, but a flying roll. In my study, I read a note on this chapter from the Common Man's Reference Bible, and what the notes say are very interesting. I'll share them below:

"The scholars claim the flying roll is a scroll that symbolizes the written word of God, but this sure is a large copy of a scroll. It is around thirty feet long and fifteen feet in diameter. It is also called the curse and it is wickedness. This flying object strangely has two female pilots who land the flying magic carpet upon a military base in Shinar (Babylon). The scholars sure have envisioned a whopper in their private interpretation of this vision. Another interpretation of this passage is that two storks bring the baby at birth. An honest interpretation of the flying roll is it is an unidentified flying object (UFO). The mother-ship of the smaller saucer-shaped UFOs is usually shaped like a cylinder. The evil occupants of UFOs are infatuated with blood (Gen. 6:1-4), electricity (Luke 10:18), magnesium (Isa. 28:16-22), and sulfur (Rev. 9:17-18). Historical documents refer to UFOs as fireballs or strange flashes of light (2 Cor. 11:13-15). UFOs are counterfeits of the visions of God (Ezek. 1:15-25). The demonic occupants claim to be aliens or gods from outer space (Gen. 6:1-4; Ps. 82; Matt. 24:36-38; Acts 14:11-12), but they are deceivers from the underworld (Ezek. 32:24) and they will have worldwide influence during the Tribulation. They are also called spiritual wickedness in high places because world leaders make agreements with these evil beings in exchange for fame and fortune (Isa. 28:15; Matt. 4:8-9; Eph. 6:12). The spiritual weapons to fight these beings are prayer and fasting, the word of God, and the blood of Jesus Christ (Mark 9:29; Heb. 9:14; 1 John 1:7; Rev. 12:11)."

I found the above note quite interesting. Some of it I already knew, some of it I've already been considering, and some of it I've never pondered, and will have to study further.

Instead of going with the usual interpretation of Zechariah 5 being about a flying scroll, let's look at it from the literal - a flying roll. Friends, let's dig into Zechariah five with open minds, and consider the possibility that the flying roll is just that - a flying roll.

"1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.
2 And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits."

Zechariah looked up and saw a flying roll. This keeps making me think of the cigar shaped UFOs that have been reported the world over by witnesses in both modern, and ancient times. This flying roll measured about 30 feet long, and 15 feet around. It's not outlandish to consider that to be a flying vehicle, as we see the good angels and God using flying vehicles described as "chariots of fire." For example, see 2 Kings 2:11 and 2 Kings 6:17.

"3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it."

If the flying roll is a flying scroll of the word of God, then why is verse three referring to the flying roll as a curse? Thieves, blasphemers, and unholy oath takers will be cut off by this roll. This reminds me of God letting the evil drown in their own sin. I think it is significant that it says "every one" that stealeth and "every one" that sweareth. We have all committed both of those sins, meaning that this cursed roll has the power to cut all of us off, except those of us who are washed in the blood of the Lamb are cleansed from these and all other sins, meaning this roll cannot affect us.

Now notice where it say "This is the CURSE." Here is an interesting side note. Do you know what the Hebrew word for "curse" is, in this verse? It is "alah." I kid you not. God is wise. While allah may mean god in Arabic, alah means curse in Hebrew. This isn't a coincidence, this is God telling us something.

Continuing on...

"4 I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof."

Notice in this verse, it doesn't say every thief and every liar, but just "the thief," and "him that sweareth falsely." Perhaps it still means every one, but I think it doesn't. Perhaps it's possible that this verse is referring to what many call "alien home invasions," and "alien abductions." Have you ever heard of a Bible believing, saved, born again Christian being abducted by an alien? I don't think it's possible. However, the above verse (if this is what the verse means) does show it is possible to happen to false Christians - "Him that sweareth falsely by my name."

"5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth."

Zechariah is again told to look UP at an object flying in the sky. Notice also "that goeth forth." It sounds like perhaps this next object may have come out of the flying roll.

"6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth."

This is their resemblance?

What is this "ephah?" An ephah is like a bowl that measures grain. An ephah is 8 gallons and 3 pints. They "their resemblance" look like a bowl flying in the sky. That sounds like those flying bells and flying saucers that have been spotted throughout the world from ancient to modern times. Have you ever wondered why in many of the so called videos and pictures, those round objects looked kind of small? I have.

"7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah."

A lid is on top of this bowl. It is made of lead, and weighs a talent. That means this container's lid weighs about 122 pounds. I wonder what material the bowl was made out of? Notice there is a passenger inside this flying bowl. A female.

"8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof."

It looks like the female being inside the flying ephah is wicked. The wicked female was put inside the ephah, and the 122 pound lead lid was put on top.

"9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven. 10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah? 11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base."

Now we see two more women with wings, carrying the ephah with the wicked female in it to Babylon, which is Shinar.

I believe the wicked female inside the ephah, and the two female beings with wings are three fallen angels. The fact that they are depicted as female tells me that all angels are not male, as is the common teaching.

The "base" could be a space port or landing site, or even a military base. If this is the case, then the fallen angel females are likely landing some of the flying ephahs in Iraq, on a base they have there. The spiritual significance would then be the fact that the female inside the ephah is called "wickedness." This word wickedness makes me remember that the flying roll is called a curse, and that the Hebrew word used for curse was "alah."

However, I believe the flying ephah was brought to Mystery Babylon, which is in Rome, not Iraq:

"And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."

This seems more likely, for look at the above description. How cursed and wicked does that sound...

In this case, the "base" in the end of Zechariah 5 could be a literal base for an idol or statue to stand on. The wicked female inside the ephah could then be the counterfeit of the virgin Mary of Roman Catholicism, and other spin offs. This false Mary is not the Mary in the Bible, but is the counterfeit virgin of Mystery Babylon. The Bible calls this false goddess Ashtoreh, and those who worship her sometimes referred to her in the Bible (and in Roman Catholicism) as "the queen of heaven."

I believe these beings are devils/fallen angels and are behind the Vatican, Islam, and their children religions.

This is the spiritual wickedness in HIGH places:

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." -Ephesians 6:12

We can better fight corrupted government in this world, if we see the spiritual significance.

Lord, may you open our eyes.

The Song of Moses

Below is a song, written by Moses. Notice how New Testament it sounds, even though it is in the Old Testament. It speaks of the Rock of our salvation, of people forsaking the true God and going after false gods, and more. The below is completely relevant to today's generation. Take a look:

"1 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.

2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:

3 Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.

4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.

6 Do ye thus requite the Lord, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?

7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.

8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.

9 For the Lord's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.

10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.

11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:

12 So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.

13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;

14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.

15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.

17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.

18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.

19 And when the Lord saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.

20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.

21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.

24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.

25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.

26 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:

27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the Lord hath not done all this.

28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.

29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up?

31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.

32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:

33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.

34 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?

35 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.

36 For the Lord shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.

37 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,

38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.

39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.

41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.

42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.

43 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.

44 And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun." -Deuteronomy 32:1-44

What Your Church May Not Tell You

I do not adhere to many theories on the Bible that hold no water. For example, I don't buy into the Gap Theory, nor do I buy into certain other things, such as British Israelism. I've looked into those and other teachings, and don't buy into them, because I do not see Scriptures, when properly divided (2 Tim. 2:15), supporting those theories.

We are called to study, learn, and know the Scriptures. When we earnestly study the Scriptures, it can show we are approved unto God:

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. -2 Timothy 2:15

The Bible has answers to so many more things than what the typical church teaches. For example, how many churches preach that we should abstain from harmful abuse to our bodies - such as smoking, drinking, and gluttony? The born again Christian's body is a temple for the Holy Spirit, and we should take care of these temples:

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. -1 Corinthians 3:16-17

I don't fornicate, smoke or drink, and I am not a regular glutton, however I am guilty of putting unhealthy foods into my body too often. This is an area the Lord is/has been working on me in. The above Scripture comes to my mind, often, and I praise God for that.

What about UFOs and outer space? How many churches teach us what the Bible has to say about that? God used a chariot of fire and a whirlwind to take Elijah, while still alive, into heaven. In today's jargon, this chariot of fire could be conceived as a trans-dimensional vehicle of light.

And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. -2 Kings 2:11

Beam me up, Scotty? No thanks - I'll wait for the rapture. Elijah's rapture was glorious. I'm sure it was something amazing for Elisha to witness. The born again Christian's rapture will happen very quickly - in the twinkle of an eye:

Behold, I shew 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 trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. -1 Corinthians 15:51-52

Does your church teach you about something called the pre-tribulation rapture? The Bible doesn't teach that. In fact, it says that if you believe in the pre-trib rapture, you are deceived. Don't take my word for this. I read this in the Bible. Here I'll show you:

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. -2 Thessalonians 2:1-4

Many study Bibles take away from and add to the Word of God, by changing the above term "day of Christ," to the 'day of the Lord.' When you hear a teaching on that, or you read that in a study Bible, rest assured, they are wrong. The Bible is full of distinctions. There is a distinction between the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God, yet how many people and study Bibles wrongly say they are the same thing? This is because of lack of distinction and proper division of the Word of God. How many teach the day of the Lord and the day of Christ are the same? They are different. 2 Thessalonians 2 is telling us about the day of Christ, not the day of the Lord.

The day of the Lord is from Armageddon until the end of the millennium of peace at the creation of the new heavens and new earth. The day of Christ is the rapture - which is our gathering together with Him.

The church in Thessalonica was concerned that the rapture could happen at any moment - That ye be not ... troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. The Thessalonians thought the rapture could happen at any second. They were troubled at this. Perhaps some feared they would miss the rapture, or had already missed it. They had received word, and perhaps letters, telling them the rapture was "at hand," and could happen any second. 2 Thessalonians 2 was written to explain that the rapture cannot happen, without certain other things happening first, therefore the rapture could not just happen any time, at that point.

Parallel the happenings in this list with Daniel 12, Daniel 9:27, 1 Corinthians 15:50-52, and Revelation 11:15-18, and we see that the events that must happen before the rapture are the first half of the seven year tribulation. Clearly, rapture is mid-trib. People say the rapture isn't taught in the Old Testament, but it is. It is just harder to see, because it combines the two resurrections, just as it often had both comings of Christ mentioned in the same breath. Daniel 12:1-2 is a clear, classic example of the mid-trib rapture shown in the Old Testament. For more information, and lots of Scriptural proof that the rapture is mid-trib, click here, here, here, and then here. If you can come away still believing in a pre-trib rapture, after reading all the Scriptures provided at all these links, then you have a very vivid imagination.

Okay, let's get more X-File, shall we? I mentioned above about the chariot of fire and whirlwind that picked up Elijah. That could be construed as a UFO, except it's more an IFO - Identified Flying Object. It was clearly a vehicle of sorts, to take Elijah, alive, into heaven.

God and angels can use these vehicles of light. Fallen angels, which are devils, can do such, as well. They can make these vehicles appear as signs to the ancients, and today, as UFOs, supposedly from outer space. There is a chapter in the Bible that tells us about the two most common UFOs - the cigar shaped ones, and the round, bowl or saucer shaped ones. Most study bibles out there stretch this chapter to give it a meaning other than what it plainly says. They will contradict the very Greek itself to try to explain away this chapter. Do you know what chapter I am referring to? It is Zechariah chapter five.

This chapter opens by telling us about a flying roll. Spiritually blind or mislead textual critics will try to tell you that the flying roll is a flying scroll of the Word of God. Yet, that's not what this chapter says. It does not call this object a flying scroll. It calls it a flying roll. This is not a mistranslation from the Greek. The Greek word here is for roll not scroll. For a look at the Greek, and a deeper study on Zechariah chapter five, click here. Zechariah five even gives us the dimensions of the flying roll. I believe this could not be the word of God, because it is referred to as a curse, and the Word of God is not a curse.

Also in this chapter, we see flying saucers, or bowls, which are described as ephas. Inside one of these flying ephas is a woman, and the chapter tells us she is Wickedness. Two female, winged devils bring the epha with the woman - Wickedness, in it, to Shinar. Shinar is an ancient name for Babylon.

I believe this wicked woman is the Ashtoreth of the Bible, also referred to in the Scriptures as the pagan "Queen of Heaven," who gave false virgin birth to Baal. This is the Mystery Babylon religion, which started in - Babylon. This woman is also the goddess named Easter, of the pagan holiday named after her - Easter. She is the counterfeit virgin of the pagan holiday that is currently called Christmas, but which existed long before Christ. She is the witch of witches of Halloween, which is more accurately, Helloween. She is the counterfeit Mary of the cult of Roman Catholicism. Mystery Babylon started in Babylon, but its current spiritual headquarters are in Rome. This Mystery Babylon religion has touched, to varying degrees, possibly just about every church currently in existence. For more information on the holiday deceptions, see the "Holiday Truths" section in the left sidebar. For more information about the Queen of Heaven of Mystery Babylon, and counterfeit Christianity, click here.

[Please note that I am not saying to stop attending church. By all means, attend. The bible tells us to not forsake our gathering together, and even though churches are not perfect, we should still go, as that's the Lord's will for us, as we see church mentioned often in the Scriptures.]

UFOs are from two sources - physical, and spiritual. Physical UFOs are either tricks or fakery, or something man made. However, the genuine, non-man made UFOs are from the prince of the power of the air:

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience -Ephesians 2:2

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. -Ephesians 6:12

At the moment, the god of this world isn't God - it's the devil. In its fallen state, Satan is the prince of this world:

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. -2 Corinthians 4:4

Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. -Matthew 4:8-9

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience -Ephesians 2:2

What people claim to have seen as genuine aliens, are in fact devils. As for the Greys, my personal theory is that they are human devil hybrids. It happened before, in Genesis 6.

The offspring were often giants, but some may not have been. Also, some of the offspring sometimes had six fingers and six toes:

And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot and he also was the son of the giant. -1 Chronicles 20:6

In the above, we see it was a giant who had six fingers and six toes. Could some offspring or genetic anomalies caused by the mixing of devils and humans create non-giants with other characteristics? If there is a such a thing as a Grey, and if the famous autopsy of one is real, then I believe Greys are a type of devil/human hybrid. According to the supposed autopsy, the grey had six fingers and six toes. He was not tall, but short. The big black eyes turned out to have black contact lenses on them. Once the lenses were removed, the eyes looked like large, human eyes.

Think about the grayish skin, the short stature, and what seems to be a sensitivity to light - the "sunglasses" contact lenses... Sounds to me like they are right here on earth - or should I say - inside the earth. Do you think I'm reaching? To study this more, click here and see what you think.

Now, what of other planets out there? Why would God create earth, but we have yet to find another planet capable of sustaining life?

I believe that the other planets were once able to sustain life, but now only Earth is. The stars were open to us, before the fall. Now they are not.

When Adam and Eve sinned, the curse fell not only on them, but also on ALL creation:

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. -Romans 8:22

The WHOLE creation groaneth and travileth. All creation awaits the redemption. Some would argue that all creation here means only life on earth, but it doesn't say that - it says the whole creation, and this meshes perfectly with the following:

All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. -1 Corinthians 15:39-45

The Bible tells us that there will be new heavens and a new earth. Why the heavens, too? I believe it will be to make the other planets inhabitable once again.

The new heavens and new earth happen after the millennium of peace. Remember, the day of Christ is the mid-trib rapture. The day of the Lord is Armageddon until the end of the millennium, when he burns up the earth and heavens, and redoes them:

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. -2 Peter 3:10-13

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. -Revelation 21:1

In Genesis, the command to 'be fruitful and multiply' was repeated several times.

In the Psalms, we are told we are blessed, if we have many children (Psalm 127, for example).

We are told in several places in the New Testament that the husband and wife are to raise their children. This means if physically able, the husband and wife are to have more than one child - children. This would mean that the population on the earth could continue to grow exponentially. What stops this from being a real problem, is that this earth is under the curse, and currently under the rule of Satan. Because of this, pestilence, sickness, and other tragedies continually reduce and check the population.

However, we were told to be fruitful and multiply even before the fall. Where would everyone go, after the earth really has been filled up? After the curse is lifted, there will be no more death, as we are told in Revelation 21 that death is cast into the lake of fire. Where do the future generations after the millennium of peace go, after the earth is filled up? I believe to the other planets, which will be made perfectly inhabitable after the new heavens and new earth are set up. Think about it. Why else have all those planets out there? What would be the point?

This article named just a few things that most churches probably don't touch upon. Sisters, let us study God's Word for ourselves. We must check everything against the Word of God. We must grow to the meat of the Word, and not stay on the milk.

Question From a Reader: "So, is it your belief that we will still be married and having children in eternity? You spoke of future generations. Or do you think that only pertained to the garden? If it is the first, could you provide scriptural backing?"

Answer - Resurrected and raptured Christians will no longer be given in marriage, which means they will not have children any more. They will have a different purpose. They will be rulers - kings and priests under the Lord throughout the universe - Rev. 1:16 and Rev. 5:10; Matt. 22:30.

However, there will still be living humans on the earth who were not destroyed in the tribulation, and who were not raptured, because they were not saved at the time. These people will be fruitful, and multiply, just as we are today, else there would be no human flesh left on earth after the millennium. After the millennium of peace, the nations will be tested, via Satan being released from the pit and tempting them. Some of them will be idiots, and will join on Satan's side. The war will be short lived. God will destroy them, and then cast Satan into the lake of fire for eternity. After that, the heavens and earth will be melted with fervent heat, and a new heavens and new earth will be made. We will be returned to how it was before the fall of man. Rev. 20:1-21:1; 2 Peter 3:10-13.

The government of Christ will always increase, which means those still living a natural life - not resurrected from the dead, or raptured, will still be giving in marriage and having children. Further, they can partake of the tree of life, which means they will never die, just as Adam was originally supposed to be fruitful and multiply, but never die. They will be fulfilling the original command of being fruitful and multiplying. Take a look at Isaiah 9:7 - "Of the INCREASE of his government and peace there shall be no end..."

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures
1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21

Build Your Foundation on the Rock of Salvation

"He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great." -Luke 6:48-49

"The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation." -2 Samuel 22:47

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." -John 8:32

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." -John 14:6

The terms "Christian" and "personal relationship with Jesus Christ" have been bantered around so much, that for many people, they have lost their original savor. What is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Is it going to church? Is it being a "good person?" Is it via doing certain rituals, or following certain traditions? No, it is so much simpler than that.

Jesus says:

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." -Revelation 3:20

Let Jesus into your heart and life. Put your faith and trust in Him, and in Him alone.

Why did Jesus Christ come to this earth? He came to pay for our sins. Have you ever broken any of the Ten Commandments? Did you know that Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount that just looking at someone with lust in your heart is the same thing as committing adultery in your heart?

Many people will say I'm a good person. Sure, I've stolen a few paper clips in my time, and I've told some lies, but I've never killed anyone, so I'm good enough for heaven. Don't be so sure. Have you ever felt hatred toward someone? If so, then you are guilty of committing murder in your heart:

"Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." -1 John 3:15

If you have stolen, lied, lusted after someone, hated someone, loved someone or something more than God, etc., then you have broken at least 5 of the Ten Commandments. Do you really think you'd make it to heaven? Not according to God's Word:

"Know ye not that the unrighteous {sinful} shall not inherit the kingdom of God {or go to heaven when they die}? Be not deceived: neither fornicators {sex outside of marriage, or pre-marital sex}, nor idolaters {loving something or someone more than you love God}, nor adulterers {physically, or in the heart}, nor effeminate {cross dressing}, nor abusers of themselves with mankind {homosexuality}, Nor thieves {even stealing a pen or paper clip makes you a thief}, nor covetous {inordinately desiring wealth or things}, nor drunkards, nor revilers {one who assails with abusive language}, nor extortioners {blackmail, or wresting anything from anyone via force}, shall inherit the kingdom of God." -1 Corinthians 6:9-10 {words in curly brackets are my notes}

But there is good news:

"And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." -1 Corinthians 6:11

We are all sinners:

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" -Romans 3:23

Even Mary, the woman chosen by God to be a vessel that would carry Jesus in her womb, was a sinner, and in need of a Saviour:

"And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." - Mary said this in Luke 1:47. Only sinners need a Saviour, and Mary also accepted Jesus Christ as her Saviour.

We are all imperfect, fallible sinners:

"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." -1 John 1:5-8

The blood of Jesus Christ is what cleanses us from all sins. Jesus came to this earth to die to pay for our sins. You see, Leviticus tells us that 'the life is in the blood,' and that it takes spilt blood to atone for sin.

When we choose to truly believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, and to live our lives for Christ, then Christ's spilt blood cleanses us from our sins:

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." -Isaiah 1:18

Jesus tells us this:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." - Jesus said this, in John 3:16-18

Paul gives us a simple "step by step process" on how to be saved:

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." -Romans 10:9-11

Jesus is our one and only mediator:

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" -1 Timothy 2:5

Jesus is our High Priest:

"Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." -Hebrews 4:14-15

We are to follow the Lord and the Bible, not traditions of man:

"But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" -Matthew 15:3

Jesus is God:

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." -1 Timothy 3:16

If Jesus isn't the Lord of your life, then I hope that you will let Him into your heart and life this very moment.

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8

Have you built your foundation on the Rock of Salvation?

Jesus is the way. If you would like to receive Jesus into your heart and life, then let Him know. Pray to the Lord, telling Him that you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and that you believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the death penalty for your sins. Tell this to God in your own words, from your heart.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romans 6:23

Believe, and Receive:

"In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise" -Ephesians 1:13

When you believe on Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit. You are sealed as a child of God.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and life as your Lord and Saviour, and you believe that Jesus died on the cross in your place, to pay the death penalty for your sins, and that Christ rose from the dead three days later, then you are saved, and born again.

You are now a saved Child of God, with the Holy Spirit living within you. Please get a King James Bible and turn to the Gospel of John. That is the fourth book in the New Testament. If you don't have a King James Bible, then you can read it for free, online - here.

After you've read the Gospel of John, go on to read Acts, and then Romans. These three books will bring you through the Gospel, the early church, and basic Christian doctrine. After you've read these three, then turn to the beginning of the New Testament, and read it all the way through. After that, read both the Old and New Testaments.

You should also follow the Lord and get baptized in water. A Believer's Baptism doesn't save you. Only faith in Christ saves you. A Believer's Baptism is an outward showing of your salvation. It symbolizes you being born again. When you are lowered under the water, it shows you dying to your old self, and when you are raised up out of the water, it symbolizes you being born again, as a new creature in Christ. This is called a Believer's Baptism, because, according to the Bible, a person is supposed to get baptized after they have believed on Christ. Anyone who was "baptized" before having faith in Christ just got wet - nothing more.

Find a good church to go to, and you can get baptized there.

It can be hard to find a good, Bible believing church. Below is a directory to some great Bible preaching churches or home churches.

Find a Wonderful Church Near You.

If you were not able to find any churches at the above directory near you, then search the internet or phone book for Family Integrated Churches. They are worth commuting to.

Immerse yourself in the Bible. The Bible is God's love letter to you. It is also your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.
