Ancient Aliens: Do You Believe?

Ancient Aliens: Do You Believe? 
Is God an Alien? Are We Being Visited By Advanced Physical Beings From Across the Universe? The Truth Will Surprise You. There Is Some Evidence That More People Believe In Aliens Than Believe In God.

Introduction: When men choose not to retain God in their knowledge they will replace Him with something God has created or something they have conceived in their imaginations:

Rom 1:18-25 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; (19) Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. (20) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (21) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. (24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."

A. Back in 1968, Erich von Däniken published a book called "Chariots of the Gods: Unsolved Ancient Mysteries".
1. It proposes that just about everything we cannot explain from the study of history was due to visitation and intervention of advanced alien races from other planets:
2. He is now a popular guest on many "alien" TV programs.
3. Our so called "history" and "science" channels are full of "UFO", "Alien" and "Abduction" "documentaries."
4. These programs present what they call the "facts" of evidence that not only are we being visited by non human beings from other planets, but often that they actually created human life on this planet and in ancient times were considered gods by humanity.
5. Just about any time of the day or night a channel surfer can watch these people speaking of their theories and imaginations as if they are undeniable and provable facts (not true).
6. Whether it is the stories of supernatural events of the Bible or the amazing creations of past humans, these guys give all the credit to "ancient aliens" or "ancient astronauts". Some propose that even Jesus was an alien from another planet.
7. SETI: (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) has been sending messages and listening for messages from outer space aliens for more than 50 years (no evidence yet).
8. Since around the 1950s (HG Wells, War of the Worlds) "ET" "information" has been growing in popularity along with the popularity of science fiction programming like "Star Trek", "Flash Gordon", "Star Wars", etc.

B. Question: Why do you think this would even be worthy of mention in the church assembly where we are gathered to study the Word of God and honor the One True God??
1. An interesting survey from Great Britian: More people believe in Aliens than believe in God:
2. Ripley's Believe it or Not (by OnePoll, Date??): 1,500 Adults, 500 children.
a. Adults who believe in: Ghosts (55%), Aliens (51%), UFOs (42%), Angels (27%), God (25%).
b. Children who believe in: Ghosts (64%), Aliens (64%), UFOs (50%), God (33%), Angels (27%).
3. It would not surprise me if people in America would be the same or even worse for God's sake.

C. When Satan and the imaginations of man get together the result is always the same: A Lie, that God is not the Creator, that we evolved ourselves or were created by (non god) advance physical beings.
1. From entertainment to pseudo history and science programs: The truth of God is under attack!!
2. Like a slow moving disease of misinformation, quietly numbing people's minds to the truth of God!!
3. As the Bible says, this is nothing new: That is "wise" men forgetting God and truth in general.

Rom 1:25  "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature (what is created)  more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."

D. History tells us this is nothing new: Mankind has always worshipped God's creation more than God.
1. "Ra" the sun "god", "Zeus", "Baal", "Molech", cats, snakes, cows, dead ancestors, the earth
(mother nature), the sea (Poseidon, Neptune), hundreds of gods in all cultures.
2. From the beginning Satan has even proposed and worked to make man think that even he himself can be God with the right information!

Gen 3:4-7  "And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: (5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. (6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. (7) And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons."
a. The knowledge they received revealed Satan had lied, they had sinned, they were now naked and needed to hide from the true God.

E. God is to be set apart in our hearts as the only true God and Creator of all things:

1 Pet 3:15: "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:"

F. **Before I proceed, I want to concede that I believe that life on this Earth is of Alien origin:
1. If: "Alien" means not of this world and not human then life here came from an "Alien".
2. I believe a non human "Alien" has always been at work here since ancient times.
3. This (non human) Ancient Alien has given us His guidance and knowledge about physical life and what happens after physical life is over. (This non human gets little air time for what He has done and revealed to us humans). (SETI: Are you listening??).
4. This Ancient Alien loves His creation wants them to be with Him forever. (He does not probe, abduct or need to study us, He just wants what is best for us).
5. Neither God nor Jesus are like us or are of this world:

Psa 113:2-6 "Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. (3) From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised. (4) The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. (5) Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high, (6) Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!"

John 8:23  "And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world."

John 17:15-17  "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. (16) They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. (17) Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."

I. Do (Aliens) Extraterrestrials Exist And Are They Visiting Earth?
A. Now listen carefully and I will share with you everything the Bible (God) has to say about the existence of physical intelligent life elsewhere in the Universe. ..................Silence.
B. Now listen as I share with you all the absolute, scientifically verified evidence that there is alien life on other planets and they have been visiting us since ancient times. .............. Silence.
1. Eyewitness accounts put aliens right up there with Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, etc.
2. Are people seeing something? Probably, but are they interpreting what they see accurately??

C. Aliens always go hand in hand with evolution (they are more evolved): I never hear anyone asking, where did aliens come from?? (No one is answering the origin question with any verifiable evidence here or in space!)
1. Evolution is a scientifically unproven and impossible hypothesis of the origin of life and how all living things have come to be as they are now.
2. Note: Aliens are almost unanimously believed to be the products of evolution occurring in some other location millions of years before life on earth and thus are advanced beyond us (they are believed by many to even be responsible for the beginning of life here on Earth).
3. Thus we have a theory of life not supported by facts explaining the existence of beings not supported by the facts. (Note: Communication from supposed aliens most always supports evolution and not the Biblical account of creation of Earth and the universe.)

D. Real Science and Space Travel: True Science gives evidence against ET visitors: Alien Visitation from across the universe is impossible according to the facts of science and the laws and principles of the universe.
Speed, Distance and Time:
1. -Einstein: Fastest speed possible= Light Speed (186,000 miles per second- could circle the Earth seven times in one second).
a. This is over 11 million miles an hour (Earth is 93 million miles from the Sun- It takes light over 8 minutes to travel from the Sun to the Earth).
2. The Universe is vast in size and distance:
a. Closest star: Proxima Centauri: 4.2 years traveling at light speed.
b. It would take 100,000 years to cross the Milky Way Galaxy.(our galaxy is just one of 100 billion estimated in the observable universe).
c. The nearest Galaxy to us (Andromeda) is 2,300,000 light years away. (Do "aliens" live to be 2 million years old?? "Honey, I have to go to Earth to study some lower life forms, should be back in about 4 million years. Don't wait up for me?")
Energy Shortage:
1. The energy force required to travel at light speed would make it impossible (without science fiction).
a. Energy required to move a one pound object to even half of light speed: (Energy of 98 Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs. (energy required to stop would be the same).
b. To propel the space shuttle at half the speed of light it would take the energy of 23 million atomic bombs. (Theory says antimatter engine could do this, but it takes known science 1 year to make enough antimatter to power a light bulb for a few seconds; antimatter is rare in space).
NOTE:  Warp Speed (faster than light) does not exist in observable science. Worm holes (short cuts through space) are also only imagined, not proven. (Science Fiction).
Talk About Road Hazards and Known Laws of Motion and Impact:
1. Space is full of dust particles (100,000 per cubic kilometer of space). This is a peril for all space travel today, even at relatively lower speeds in orbit).
a. Hitting a speck of dust moving at one tenth the speed of light would be an impact equivalent to 10 tons of TNT.
b. Hitting a pea sized object moving at half the speed of light would be equivalent to 2.2 atomic bombs. (Our space equipment has received damage from small objects moving much slower).
c. How do you scan and avoid objects ahead of you if you are traveling at the speed of light?
G Forces Beyond Imagination:
1. The G Force Problem: At 5 G’s a pilot passes out; At 9 G’s a pilot dies in seconds. Making even a slight turn (to avoid obstacles??) at light speed would exert millions of G’s on a ship and its passengers.
2. But, despite this known science of kinetics, many believe in aliens zipping about the universe like we fly around the world (Science fiction is no longer fiction in the minds of those who want to believe—They have evolved and advanced beyond what we know!!).
3. This “science” is often more a faith or personal belief than a fact, especially when its hypothesis’ stand in direct contradiction to know, applied science. ("universal laws" applies to the whole universe or it is not universal).

E. We have no solid evidence that ETs exist. If other beings exist and are interacting with mankind, the evidence tells us they are not from a “galaxy far far away.” (Also note exclusive characteristics of the Earth and Solar System allowing life to exist).

Known science and facts tell us it is not possible for "physical aliens" to visit us from across the universe.

II. Are There Other Non Human Beings From Another Realm / Dimension?
A. If these “Aliens” are not from space, then where are they from? Some speak of another dimension where various kinds of beings exist and can move in and out of our world.
1. Example: Reptilians who feed off of bad human emotions and are attempting to enslave mankind.
2. They enter our dimension with their vehicles through portals, or so it is believed by many (Bermuda Triangle?).
3. They are thought by some to be spiritual or “Psychic” beings who can sometimes take physical form. etc. etc.

B. A Biblical Reality we may not like to talk about: Part of God’s Creation.
1. There are other realms in which even humans can be conscious, other than the world we live in:
Hades: (grave, sheol OT). Lazarus, Elijah, Abraham, even Jesus Visited.
Tartarus: Place where angels who sinned are reserved in chains of darkness until the judgment of God. (2 Pet 2:4)
Heaven: Place where God, Jesus, Good angels and dead saints will dwell forever.
Hell: Place where evil spiritual beings the spirits of evil humans will dwell forever.
2. There are other beings which have been created by God which exist out of the sight of most human experience: Angels, demons and devils.
Psa 148:1-5: "Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights. {2} Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. {3} Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. {4} Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. {5} Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created."
3. Man was made a little lower than these angels and give dominion of God’s creation:
Psa 8:4-6: "What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? {5} For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. {6} Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:"
Heb 1:13-14: "But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? {14} Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

C. One particular fallen angel is revealed to be the enemy of God and all who would seek to believe and follow God: Satan (the Accuser), The Devil (False accuser, slanderer), Beelzebub.
1. His revealed purpose and characteristics: Lies, deception, illusions, murder, death: the spiritual separation from mankind from God.
2. He is revealed to be an ever present enemy of those who would live by faith: In the past, present and future, until the end. (He even tempted Jesus while He was on the Earth).
3. He has “his angels”, “his ministers” and the ability to transform (??) (Matt 25:41; Rev 12:7).

2 Cor 11:14-15: "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. {15} Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."

4. He is capable of producing lying signs and wonders:

2 Th 2:9-12: "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, {10} And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. {11} And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: {12} That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

D. Are we or are we not constantly warned about the potential deceptive and destructive work of these beings?

1 Pet 5:8-9: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: {9} Whom resist stedfast in the faith…”

Mark 4:15: "And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts."

Acts 5:3: "But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?"

1 Cor 7:5: "Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency."

2 Cor 2:10-11: "To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; {11} Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices."

1 Th 2:18: "Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us."

1 Tim 5:15: "For some are already turned aside after Satan."

Rev 2:9: "I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan."

D. There are beings who exist and are involved in what happens in this world, but their main power is deceit and false teachings: They are always defeated by the TRUTH!
(Note: It is kind of hard to find scientific, undeniable evidence for a lie. The way to defend a lie is to prop it up with more lies.  Right??)

2 Cor 4:3-4: "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: {4} 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."

1 Tim 4:1: "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times (from Pentecost till now) some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;"

E. The Worship or Exaltation of angels, imaginary gods or aliens from the heavens is foolish, but an age old path:

2 Ki 21:3-6: "For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. {4} And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name. {5} And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. {6} And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger."

III. The Gospel According To ET: Satan
A. I cannot confirm or deny the many experience people claim, but I can say with biblical confidence that I am confident of the source and purpose of the many “messages from aliens.” SATAN!
B. Let us take note of the similarity and differences between “Alien” Guidance and the messages of Satan:
1. According to alien (New age teaching) we are all moving toward a highly evolved existence eventually to be like gods:

Gen 3:4-5: "And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: {5} For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."
a. Note: Joseph Smith (founder of Mormonism) claims teachings from an “angel” which if studied, claims men can become like God and rule over their own “terrestrial” planets.
b. Mohammed claims insight and revelation from the Angel Gabriel which inspired him to create the nation of Islam, which denies Jesus as the Messiah and Savior, even that He died.
c. Heaven’s gate cult (38 in 1997) committed suicide so they could be ready to move on to the next level (no space ship showed to take them away)
d. Paul said if even an “angel” gives a gospel different from the original, let him be accursed!

Gal 1:8: "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."

2. According to the ET Gospel, Aliens are coming to save us from ourselves and help us save our planet as if this is all we have: We should be good stewards of our planet, but no matter how well we take care if it, it will not last.

2 Pet 3:9-10: "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. {10} 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."

1 John 2:14-17: "I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. {15} Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. {16} For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. {17} And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."

3. Many who claim contact with Aliens say they have met Jesus and that there are many different ways to the eternal peaceful existence:

Mat 24:23-26: "Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. {24} For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. {25} Behold, I have told you before. {26} Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not."

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

Conclusion: Aliens or Angels may be responsible for many spiritual deaths and great deception, but there is only ONE LORD Who we must Worship and Obey: Jesus.

Col 2:18-19: "Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, {19} And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God."

A. When the stories of other beings, cause you to question the truth of the Word of God, believe GOD!

Rom 3:3-4: "For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? {4} God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged."

*Non human beings exist, but could not come from "far, far away."
*God is Eternal, the True "Ancient Alien" (Non human).
*Could Paul be warning us about other "created" beings who are deceiving the masses so they will not believe in the True God?? I Wonder!

Acts 26:16-18: "But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; {17} Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, {18} To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me."
