"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE THE LIE, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 You have to understand the big picture before you can understand the steps leading to a conclusion. Unless you understand the big picture you won't "get it." The big picture is the war of Satan against God. If you study the subject of this fallen angel, you'll learn that his whole mindset revolves principally around one thing: to destroy all truth concerning Jesus Christ. Study false religions. What do they all have in common? Answer: they all in some way deny key doctrines about Jesus Christ. That's it in a nutshell - it's all about Jesus and Satan's war against him. Satan hates all that God loves, and loves what God hates, and he influences mankind to believe his lies. God has allowed Satan a period of time. In his own wisdom, God allows Satan to wreak havoc and then God uses it all to work out and teach principles that mankind can't learn any other way. Mankind has to learn through pain. There isn't any other way, so it's the way God has set things up - for his own purposes; otherwise he could speak a word and wipe Satan out of existence. But ...there is an end date. Satan's time is limited. Satan knows that of course, and he uses all the intelligence he has to thwart God's purposes. He has done this from the beginning and he will continue it to the end. When God purposed to send a deliverer to bring his people out of captivity in Egypt, Satan moved against Moses at his birth by causing the Pharaoh to slay all the newborn Hebrew males in order to stop this from happening. When Jesus Christ was born, Satan moved upon Herod's heart and had him slay all the newborn Hebrew males in order to stop the Redeemer right there before he could fulfill God's purposes. We're in "the last days." God has given us signs to watch for that will signal to us that we are in the last days, the chief of them being the re-establishment of Israel after her 2,000 year disbursement throughout the world. This is an end-time miracle that only God could have brought to pass - in fulfillment of his ancient promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their descendants. Satan, seeing the stirrings of Jewish people beginning to go back to the land of their fathers, moved upon Hitler to murder millions of Jews in order to prevent the nation of Israel from ever coming back into existence. He came close, but he couldn't stop God's restoration of Israel. Satan knows a few things pertinent to this discussion: 1. He knows his time is limited 2. He knows that his end will be eternal damnation in the lake of fire. 3. He knows the signs to watch for in order to understand where the story is and create a plan to stop it. 4. He knows that the whole story from Genesis to Revelation is about Jesus Christ, and that it is Jesus who will throw him into the lake of fire. 5. He knows that Israel is now back in the land. 6. He knows that now is the time to pull out all the stops and move in his mighty "last days" agenda. How can he prevent or destroy God's plan? Through deception. Satan's purpose is to deceive mankind into believing a lie. God has said that all who do not have a love for truth will fall for the last-days deception, and that God will turn them over to "believe the lie," because they did not value truth. And what will be the lie? Never forget that Satan has supernatural power. He was an archangel. Angels have supernatural power. When he rebelled against God, he was kicked out of his place in heaven and he took 1/3 of the angels with him and those angels are in a highly organized hierarchy under Satan as their ruler. Through them he accomplishes his plots and plans over mankind all over the world. Books have been written of all he has been able to accomplish by means of demonstrating supernatural power to human beings in order to have them recognize him with awe. He is behind all the strange things, the manifestations in the occult and in the "new age." He is behind all the apparitions which he has used to deceive multitudes. Satan is behind the whole UFO story, and has taken many years to get mankind into a mindset which will make them susceptible to believing the lie about his purposes behind the UFO phenomena. The time of "disclosure" is nearing. Disclosure will take place when governments and religions "reveal" that UFO's are real, and that "aliens" are among us. The "aliens," which are demons and fallen angels, will deceive mankind into believing that THEY "seeded" mankind on earth and that they are showing up now to save mankind because mankind is close to being able to destroy themselves through nuclear warfare. They will tell the people that they are the saviors and that the story of Jesus Christ is a fable that religions caused men to believe, that in fact THEY are mankind's saviors. This will be the greatest hoax ever perpetrated against mankind. It is Satan's last agenda of driving mankind away from faith in Jesus Christ. Satan knows that the generation seeing the restoration of Israel is the generation that will end with Satan's destruction, and he has adopted "the Samson option," that is, he knows he's going down and he vows to bring down as many as he can with him. This is the agenda behind the UFO "phenomena." Don't fall for it.
