DEMONIC POSSESSION AND OPPRESSION, BOTH ARE REAL

Experience of the demonic

Two stories of Duncan’s experience with the demonic are taken from the article Does the Devil Exist? in Patheos Evangelical JANUARY 11, 2022 by Duncan Edward Pile.

STORY ONE: My friends and I were in San Fernando, Philippines. It was our day off, so we decided to walk into town and share the Gospel with anyone who was interested. Ten minutes into the walk we came across a gathering on a street corner. It was the intersection of several dirt streets, with an open area of dusty ground and a small stand selling coca cola. Around us were rustic homes constructed from tree fibres.

We stopped and began to talk with the locals, and I was soon engaged by an old, staggering drunkard, wearing a large medallion – a carving of a snarling, demonic face. I’d seen plenty of similar items in the UK but they’d always struck me as harmless, gothic accessories. This was different. Just looking at it made me feel sick.

The old man grabbed my arm, and I immediately felt nauseated. Suddenly he wasn’t drunk anymore. I began to retreat but he came after me, seeking to touch me again. I became frightened. Every time his skin brushed mine I felt another wave of nausea and an intense sense of spiritual oppression. It was clear the old man was aware of the discomfort he was causing me. His eyes were cold and hard, staring at me with a hatred so intense it was palpable. He raised a bony finger before my face.

“In…your…HEAD!” he barked, stabbing my forehead with his finger. I ran, chased by his cackling until I found a group of friends. I ducked into the middle of them and squatted on my heels, arms wrapped tightly around my knees. I was literally hiding, utterly terrified.

I knew what I’d encountered. Back in the UK, I’d cast out a couple of demons. I knew the look in a person’s eyes when possessed. It’s like nothing else, but I wasn’t afraid of them until that moment. I believed they were defeated at the cross, and had no power other than that which we lend them, but I’d never encountered a person utterly given to possession – like the man in the Bible who had a whole legion of demons within him. Now I had, and the encounter had shaken me to my core.

My friends calmed me down, and a good look around told me the old man had gone, so I went to the Coke stand to get a drink. There was one customer already at the stand, and as I placed my order, I realised it was the same old man. I have no idea how I failed to spot him. He saw me and broke into a broad, nasty leer. He got into my space, and banging the heel of his palm rapidly against his chest, said:

Why is your heart going boom boom boom?” For the second time that day, I ran, and this time I didn’t return.

STORY TWO: Some friends and I were ministering at a church in Manila. During a meeting a girl doubled over, crying out in pain. She was clutching her chest, just below her left collarbone. Everyone gathered around her, praying for her to be healed, but I was on the far side of the room and there was a ring of people between her and me.

One of the gifts of the Spirit is the discernment of spirits, and at that moment, I knew beyond human knowledge that her pain was the result of demonic oppression, rather than illness. I was filled with power and authority and knew I had to act, so I crossed the room, asking people to move aside. The ring of praying folk around her parted, and on reaching her, I placed my finger on her collarbone and said: “Go! In Jesus’ name.”

Instantly, she gasped, collapsing in relief. She’d been having these attacks for some time, and even had a diagnosis for them, but the pain was instantly and completely gone. This wasn’t a ‘out of ten, how do you feel?’, before and after kind of comparison, which can be manipulated to make something seem like more than it is. One moment she was in agony, crying out in pain, and the next she was completely free of pain. She was utterly astonished.

So, what to make of the above? Each situation can certainly be explained in modern terms. The old man might have been a master of human behaviour, and sensing my vulnerability, decided to prey on me. Or perhaps we were both deluded. Maybe there is no God, and no Devil, and human beings are capable of manufacturing all manner of intense inner experiences we then label as spiritual. Maybe we were both complicit in a mutual delusion, playing for imaginary teams in an imaginary game.

In the second scenario, perhaps my conviction was enough to persuade her she was set free, and the placebo effect resulted in the sudden cessation of pain.

It’s possible to explain anything away if you try hard enough, but why do we feel the need to do so? It is also possible that there is a God, and that evil spirits oppose him, seeking to harm the lives of those he loves.

The consequences of denying the Devil’s existence

The Bible gives us both warnings and advice about demons and how to cope with their attacks. Sadly many churches do not address this basic issue and leave their congregations open to demonic attack.

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.1 Peter 5: 8-9

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.James 4:7

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground.Ephesians 6:10-13

The importance of spiritual warfare

When I pray for others, I rely on the leading of the Spirit to know how to pray. At times I know to pray for the mercy of God, at others for grace, and yet for others, I know to go to battle on their behalf, praying in power and authority against spiritual forces trying to harm them. This spiritual dimension is essential to the dynamics of effective prayer, and to Christian faith in general. I’ll tell you this much – if you’re going through trouble, these are the kind of believers you want praying for you. Good wishes and warm thoughts achieve nothing.

I fear we are busy pouring out the baby with the bathwater, reshaping Christianity in an image so far from the life and ministry of Jesus it becomes something else altogether. My prayer is that we are not so deceived by our own importance and cultural perspective that we deny the spiritual side of life, including the darkness we are called to resist. Where we’ve replaced spiritual activity with softly-spoken ponderings and general niceness, I pray we will get real.

In these last days before Jesus returns we know from Biblical prophecy that demonic warfare will only increase so we need to heed Paul’s warning to put on the full armour of the Lord daily to be able to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit gifts. Know full well that the world will hate you for being Jesus’ disciple. Torben Sondergaard and his team at Last Reformation Ministries were casting out demons from people on the streets of Denmark. Satan managed to make it look like Torben was doing something that was damaging particularly to children looking on and so the government made it illegal and a jailable offense. The situation became so intolerable for Torben that he fled to the USA. After an incredible time of ministry all over the USA making disciples of Christ that are prepared to reach out to their communities to make more disciples, Torben is now in jail in the USA on a trumped-up charge. It has been six months and he is still there. God of course has used Torben in jail to transform the lives of other prisoners but his testimony of what God has been doing to transform Torben Sondergaard will both challenge and inspire you. Take a look at my post New Year’s Greetings from Torben Sondergaard – Now six months in Jail posted January 4th, 2023.

I AM CONTENT WITH WEAKNESSES, HARDSHIPS, PERSECUTIONS, AND CALAMITIES

I am content with weaknesses, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. Who can say such a thing? From a worldly standpoint, it is insane. It was Paul that said it and it is useful to look at Paul’s circumstances at the time of making such an outlandish statement.

So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.2 Corinthians 12:7-10

Christians in Pakistan are truly living as Christians despite intense persecution.

To put this Scripture passage in context, Paul tells us of his experience of being taken by God into the heavens where it would be easy to become conceited. Why? “Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations he was given and where “he heard things that cannot be told, which man may not utter” This was why he was given a thorn in the flesh. But what was that thorn in the flesh? It was “a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited.”. For us, it should be remembered that whenever we are being obedient to God’s call that we can expect messengers of Satan to harass us. Persecution comes with the territory of being an obedient Christian.

Paul discloses this experience not so that we should focus on the attack; we are to focus on Jesus’s words instead. The Lord’s revelatory word of grace to Paul becomes the apostle’s reason for living – to proclaim the gospel. He can now “boast” in the weaknesses of his many sufferings and persecutions, knowing that such weakness brings on the power of the Holy Spirit to enable him to do what God has for him to do (2 Corinthians 12:9–10). He also discloses this experience as a way to help us understand that God does use Satan and his demons for his purposes particularly to teach us that a humble and contrite heart is what He desires.

Lessons to Be Learned from the “Thorn” in the Flesh

  1. Sometimes our most blissful experiences with the Lord follow, precede, or are accompanied by hardships and suffering.
  2. The Lord says, “no” to Paul’s request to remove the thorn. Do we recognize that sometimes God’s answer to our prayers may be “no”? And that he might have a higher purpose for us in our predicament, as he did Paul?
  3. The Lord also promises: “my grace is sufficient for you.” Despite our suffering, God is with us to comfort us, just as he was with Paul despite all his hardships and experiencing persecution.
  4. Like Paul, the Lord may want us to learn that there is strength and power in humility, weakness, and suffering. As Paul says, “When I am weak, then I am strong.”

NASA EMPLOYS PASTORS TO PREPARE THE WORLD FOR ALIENS

NASA recently hired two dozen theologians of all persuasions to offer “religious guidance” to people if and when contact with aliens were ever to occur. Many people already believe they have been contacted by aliens and even been taken up to spaceships by aliens. But it is Nelsons and my belief that what people call aliens are in fact demonic fallen angels and they appear in the “alien” guise to deceive people.

Think about how many Alien movies and children’s video games there are out there. It is my belief that this is Satan’s last strategy that will lead to the prophesied Antichrist’s arrival on the world stage .

One of Satan’s most successful strategies has been to convince the educational establishment that there is no need for God and that the Cosmos just evolved by natural selection and random chance. However, the discovery that DNA is multi-level complex information that can only come from an intelligent designer is making it impossible for evolutionists to hold the position of evolution by random chance. As well, the electron microscope now reveals all the complex machinery inside all of the different cells that make up living organisms, and these machines are controlled by the information in the DNA. This reveals “irreducible complexity” the organism had to be created with its DNA and complex machinery functioning efficiently on day one. Even the prominent atheist, Richard Dawkins has said that if it is “intelligent design” then it had to come from outer space – aliens.

So what kind of “guidance” will these pastors provide? Watch this #short episode of Last Days Breaking News with Nelson Walters to see what might happen.

NEPHILIM: HYBRID ANGEL/HUMAN PEOPLE

How many people that you know even those declaring themselves Christians believe there is a spiritual world that controls our own world? However, God’s Word makes it clear that our real battle is with spiritual forces.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.Ephesians 6:12

Prior to the worldwide flood of Noah’s day when the Fallen Angels (demons) descended onto Mount Hermon, they made a pact with Satan to produce the Nephilim. Watch this Second installment of an interview between Nelson Walters and Pastor Doug Hamp on this amazing bit of biblical history, the reasons why it happened, and the EVIDENCE for it. Also Watch “Cain’s Descendants, Nephilim, and the Watchers” https://youtu.be/4TsHORljJ1w.

Both of these videos provide important information to improve our understanding of the events that caused God to destroy all mankind except Noah and his family, the eight people on Noah’s Ark. Remember also that Jesus told us that prior to His second coming the world will be like it was in the days of Noah – The Antichrist will be taken over by Satan operating like the Nephilim of Noah’s day.

For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:37-39

REALITY OF ANGELS AND DEMONS

Angels are part of cosmic reality. They are spiritual beings but also have the ability to take on physical bodies that appear and function as human bodies. God has given them free will just as he has given us free will. We know this because there are evil angels (demons) and there is a hierarchy of angels, good and evil.

An evil archangel, Lucifer (Satan, Devil) was instrumental in bringing sin into this world by deceiving Adam and Eve. We also know that before the creation of the Cosmos, Lucifer led a rebellion of one third of all angels against those angels loyal to God. The rebellious angels were of course defeated and are now called demons but God has allowed the warfare to continue on earth. Under Lucifer’s control, demons are enemies of God intent on deceiving and destroying mankind. The following scripture reveals that archangel Michael understood God had given Satan authority (within God’s boundaries – Job) to stage warfare on earth.

But when the archangel Michael, contending with the Devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.Jude 1:9

The reason is given for Lucifer’s rebellion; he wanted to be God. Is this not mankind’s major problem, we want to be God, at least of our own lives.

How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! You said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven, above the stars of God: I will set my throne on high: I will sit on the mount of assembly, in the far reaches of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the most High.” Isaiah 14:12-14

Sadly, most of mankind is oblivious to the existence of angels and demons and therefore of the spiritual warfare taking place and yet God’s Word makes it crystal clear that without the whole armour of God we are unable to stand against the schemes of the Devil.

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:11-12

Most of mankind is following the Prince of this World (Satan) dead in their trespasses and sins.

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the Prince of the Power of the Air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.Ephesians 2:1-3

How foolish it is that most people are unwilling to repent and accept their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. John 3:16-17

“Jesus said to him (Thomas), “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” John 14:6-7

Why has God allowed Satan and his demons to exist and wage warfare against us, His creatures, made in His image?

God has revealed in many Scriptures that He knew the outcome of all that would happen in His world before He even created it. The following Scriptures make this point clear.

He (Jesus) was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.1 Peter 1:20-21

Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.John 17:24

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.” Ephesians 1:3-4

Also it (the Antichrist in the last days before Jesus returns) was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it (Antichrist) over every tribe and people and language and nation, and all who dwell on earth will worship it (Antichrist)), everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain. Revelation 13:7-8

Think on it; God planned for Jesus to come to earth at the appointed time to pay the price for the sins of mankind for all who repent and acknowledge Him as their Saviour and Lord. Surely this demonstrates the extent of God’s love for His creation as well as His grace and His mercy. Perhaps in no other way could God reveal to us His full character but in the history that has and is still playing out in His world. Through the stories of the Bible we get to know God, what He did and what is important to Him. We get to know; He is trustworthy, He is holy, righteousness, He disciplines individuals and nations, His judgement (Noah’s Flood), His mercy, grace and love (Jesus). God’s Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin and His Holy Spirit makes it possible for all believers to live the Christian life. All has been revealed to us. God wants a people who will see His character and choose Him above all else regardless of the cost. Will you be one of His children that will live eternally on the new earth and heaven? The choice is yours.

DECEPTION IN THE LAST DAYS

Darkness will cover the earth. We now live in a world that largely denies God’s existence and His ability to judge us. A world that is under the control of Satan. Jesus acknowledged His current sovereignty over this word. Just as the first man, Adam, rebelled against God, the Bible reveals that Satan an angelic being (created by God to serve Him in the heavenly dimension but able to impact and even manifest in our earthly dimension) rebelled against God wanting to be God. We are told that one-third of the angels followed Satan in his rebellion and are now demons taking part in Satan’s demonic plan to subvert God’s redemptive plan.

“We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).

A world that denies the true history of this world including the worldwide flood of Noah’s day when God judged and destroyed mankind and the animals except those on Noah’s Ark just 4000 years ago. Probably, the greatest lie that Satan has got the world to believe is the evolutionary origins of this universe.

The world also largely denies God ever established a nation to represent Him on this earth and from whom would come the redeemer, the one who can save mankind from sin, man’s rebellion against their Creator. The true history of this world from its beginning to its prophesied end has been given to us by God Himself through the prophets. Fulfilled prophecies already prove the Bible is God’s Word. Jesus came into His world and changed history forever. It is 2020 because God ensured this event could not be denied. When the resurrected Jesus departed this world He said He would return to the same place where He left it, Jerusalem. Extensive details of His second coming were revealed to the O.T. prophets and to the N.T. apostles particularly John in the book of Revelation. There are more prophecies about Jesus’ second coming to earth than there were about His first coming and there were plenty of those.

Christians we need to start living eternally now, ready for Jesus’ return. We can use the coming prophesied events to prepare the church for the coming tribulation and also for what I call apocalyptic evangelism.

ANGELIC ARMY IS ON OUR SIDE

The war in the heavens is intensifying over the prophetic destinies of God’s people, nations and territories. Just as demonic activity is increasing, angelic activity is likewise increasing. and will be surprisingly noticeable in the end times.

An example is when a believer is praying for breakthrough in a specific area. What would have taken months or even years to happen will take weeks or even days to manifest. 

Image result for pictures of guardian angels images"

Angels will provide guardianship. God gives them a specific charge, commission/assignment, to enable us to fulfil our mandate. They become invisible security guards.

“For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11).

Angels will bring deliverance and breakthrough: “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and delivers them” (Psalm 34:7).

Angels are sent by the Lord to protect believers so we are able to inherit the kingdom of God. It’s great to know that we are given shelter, protection and ministry by angels. In addition, they possess the ability to assist us in our own deliverance from sin. Angels will protect you and bring you to a place of destiny, purpose and fulfilment. Furthermore, angels are God’s servants primarily that carry out His will, Word and work for our good.

“Are not all angels ministering spirits sent out to minister to those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews. 1:14).

Indeed, I am going to send an angel before you to guard you along the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared” (Exodus 23:20)

Believers must not forget the power of the heavenly army, no matter how immeasurable or impossible the situation may appear or how much the spiritual warfare has intensified against you.

In II Kings, chapter five, when Elisha and his servant were surrounded by the vast armies and chariots of the king of Syria, Elisha’s servant was overwhelmed by fear. Elisha told him, Fear not; for they that be with us are more than they that be with them (II Kings 6:16). Then he prayed and asked God to open the eyes of his servant. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha (II Kings 6:17).

As you receive this revelation into your spirit, I believe you will see, as never before, how the God of battles—the Lord of Hosts— and the armies of heaven are fighting for you. As you do, faith will rise up within you, and you will slay every giant you face.

LIFE WITHOUT LIMBS EVANGELIST CELEBRATES ONE MILLION DECISIONS FOR CHRIST

What an amazing testimony of what God can do with people that are totally committed to serve Him. This article is by Stoyan Zaimov , Christian Post Reporter. Nick’s experience with the demonic is powerful evidence for the Bible’s account of the supernatural realm and of demons intent on deceiving and destroying humans.

Nick Vujicich, limbless author and inspirational speaker reported on a few major outreach initiatives last year, and said that his team witnessed 400,000 people repent for their sins and choose to follow Jesus Christ at an event in Ukraine in October 2017.

“The biggest event that our team at Life Without Limbs (LWL) has seen and maybe the largest event ever in Europe — 800,000 people in the streets of Kyiv Ukraine! Thank you God,” Vujicic wrote on Facebook at the time.

He added, “400,000 repented of their sins and began their spiritual journey with Jesus. Now LWL celebrates the witness of 1 million decisions to walk with and trust God in everything face to face.”

Nick Vujicic, known as the “limbless evangelist,” has said that one of the reasons why he’s not an atheist is because he has seen things that science can’t explain, such as 10-foot-tall demons in his hotel room.

Vujicic, who was born with no arms and no legs and has been inspiring millions throughout the world with his story of overcoming the odds, answered a few questions about his faith in a Facebook video on Friday.

In one of the questions he was asked, “How can we know God’s love is real, and how do you know it?”

To which he responded, “I can’t show you God, I can’t show you an angel, but one of the reasons I am not an atheist, and one of the reasons why I don’t believe science explains everything, is because I have seen miracles, and I have seen demons.”

Vujicic continued, “I’ve seen 10-foot-tall demons, 5-foot wide walk in through my San Francisco hotel room. And I felt the demon’s presence, the demonic presence, before the demon actually walked through the wall.”

He suggested that the existence of things like voodoo and witchcraft, which he said are real, also show that science can’t explain everything.

“There is a spiritual realm,” the evangelist insisted.

“You have to walk by faith despite what you see, despite what you feel — you believe it.”

Earlier in the Facebook video Vujicic explained that the mission and purpose of his ministry, Life Without Limbs, is to equip people to be “the hands and feet of Jesus,” so that they know that God loves them.

In response to some of the other questions, Vujicic talked about his growing family, and how he balances spending enough time with them and his ministry.

He said that Kanae, his spouse, is an “amazing wife, super mom, she is unbelievable.”

Kanae recently gave birth to Olivia and Ellie, the couple’s twin daughters, bringing their number of children to four, including their two older sons.

“In 2017, my total days away from home was about 105 days. [In] 2018, it’s going to be 84 days. And we’re going to stick to it, by the grace of God reaching the most amount of people ever,” Vujicic said of his plans.

The author and inspirational speaker reported on a few major outreach initiatives last year, and said that his team witnessed 400,000 people repent for their sins and choose to follow Jesus Christ at an event in Ukraine in October 2017.

“The biggest event that our team at Life Without Limbs has seen and maybe the largest event ever in Europe — 800,000 people in the streets of Kyiv Ukraine! Thank you God,” Vujicic wrote on Facebook at the time.

He added, “400,000 repented of their sins and began their spiritual journey with Jesus. Now LWL celebrates the witness of 1 million decisions to walk with and trust God in everything face to face.”

When he is home, however, Vujicic said his focus is on his family.

“Every week that I am home, me and Kanae, we do have a date. I am also about to start taking my son on a date once a week, and I also don’t want to forget my family. I am starting to take out my mom for a date every second week, and my sister every second week.”

The evangelist advised that in relationships, it’s important to take time to turn off the phone, and be real.

“Having those people in our lives is the greatest blessing, so we should live like it is,” he said.

WHAT EVERY PERSON NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT DEMONS

“You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” said Satan to Eve.  Satan masquerades as an angel of light, lies to Eve and she believes Satan not God. Adam was given the headship role, so could have righted the situation, but chose to follow Eve and disobey God.

Satan and the demons that chose to follow him are still prowling around seeking to find those they can devour. Satan knows his time is short so the battle is desperate.

Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:12 that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all stand.

Listen to Francis Chan teach on what you need to know about Satan and demons. Essential knowledge for these “last days”.

Aliens and UFOs—what are they really?

Evolution says that, given the right chemicals and conditions, life will arise by chance. So if those conditions existed on other planets then life could have arisen many times. Could there be intelligent life ‘out there’? Even some Christians wonder if God could have created life elsewhere. What is the Biblical answer to UFO sightings, crop circles and alien abductions, etc?

Alien Intrusion

Gary Bates in his best-selling book (Amazon top 50) Alien Intrusion – UFO’s and the Evolution connection, reveals that the Bible provides answers as to what is really occurring. The Bible explains the origin and activities of these evil supernatural beings (demons) and that in the last days demonic deception will increase. What we are seeing, is Satan offering with demon inspired Aliens and UFO’s, an alternative  hope for the future of mankind. It is built on his successful deception of Evolution as the Godless origin of the Universe. The majority of adults in the USA believe in UFO’s and Aliens and the young are being targeted incessantly with films and games having an Alien theme.

Jesus himself acknowledged Satan as the ruler of this world and it appears a climactic battle is now being waged for the souls of men and women and indeed the future of mankind.

Fortunately the Bible reveals the final outcome so Christians need not be concerned but we are concerned about our brothers and sisters who do not know the truth. We are all descendants of Adam and Eve so we are brothers and sisters. These two resources, Gary Bates book and the video interview below are worthy of wide dissemination.
