Modern controversy – Ever since Erich Von Daniken produced the movie “Chariots of the Gods” in 1970, people are beginning to believe that all Ezekiel saw here was a UFO and aliens rather than something supernatural. The History Channel has jumped on his theories and have brought more “evidence” to support their claims that aliens have created our DNA and are monitoring our progress perhaps as part of an experiment gone bad or a major part in their future breeding. If so, then all their “breeds” have died! That doesn’t sound like a feasible theory if aliens are super intelligent! These programs present only parts of the Biblical accounts that make their ideas look credible. They never offer theories on who designed all the other diverse life forms on this planet. They never deal with the fact their “their alien creators” never tell us what we are supposed to be doing. The God of the Bible does tell us these things. They have spent much time describing what Ezekiel saw, all peppered with their interpretations. They always omit, however, things that do not make sense to their thinking. In this case, they totally neglect to describe what Ezekiel saw ABOVE the supposed UFO. He saw something that looked like a throne with a man (not a “grey”) sitting on it, radiating with light. Ezekiel says it was the “glory of the Lord” and he proceeded to fall on his face. Then he heard a voice that would give him specific instructions!

To UFO advocates, “god” is no more worthy of being worshiped than a stone. Their hope is that we evolve enough to be as smart as they are some day. Wow, maybe that’s a nice thought for humans of a far-into-the-future time (assuming we’re evolving), but that does not speak well for the millions of people who have died and those who are alive now (since we still die and cannot compete with “the greys” yet).

The major tenet of their faith is that aliens, who have evolved farther than us, have designed human DNA as part of some experiment or, worst still, some way to extend their own bio needs. So the alien theorists have substituted the real God for a false one. This is described in Romans 1:25: “For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.” But have you ever noticed what they do not do? They never complain against their “creators” like they do against the real Creator. Where is all that anger against those who supposedly made us? Life on earth is tough, unfair, violent, and we all die!! Mention these evils to the “space alien guys” and they will scoff at the God of the Bible, but spare this animosity when they talk about aliens.

In addition, the theorists never attempt to explain where the “greys” came from, or what made all the other life forms on this earth, as well as all of the non-life forms that are essential to sustain life.

I think the bottom line problem is that fallen humans still have the same problem as Adam and Eve had in the Garden of Eden. We all want to make our own rules while we do not want some one to rule over us…no matter how perfectly Good that Someone is.

Therefore, the human need is not more evolution (this never happened anyway) or some minor tweaking within our DNA by space aliens. We need a 100% re-do. That process begins when we humble ourselves as a little child, as Jesus said. God’s spiritual surgery is the only remedy to our plight on earth. We will perceive life differently when this happens as we enter the only Kingdom (do I dare say rulership?) that will last forever. Thank you so much Jesus for making this transformation from death to Life possible!

Therefore, do not be taken in by this End-Time deception. God promises those who have been born-again in Christ “instant evolution” when we are saved and later resurrected in new bodies, and are seated with Christ forever! Earthly evolution does not wrought the change that humans really need. Our problem is not lack of knowledge, lack of technology, or IQ level. God’s “instant evolution” does the necessary “surgery” needed in order to live forever during His planned ages to come when evil no longer exists.

Evolutionary thinking permeates the alien theories. The theory of evolution, which cannot be scientifically demonstrated, contradicts both Old and New Testament statements. Advocates assume that ancient man was too ignorant to build monuments with astronomical accuracy or to make the pyramids without sophisticated intelligence outside our realm. The Biblical perspective maintains that humans have always been made intelligent by their Creator and there was never a slow change from ape-like creatures to human. God said plainly that each life form was made after their kind (Gen. 1:21, 24, 25) and that “All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish” (1 Cor. 15:39). There is no Scripture that even remotely implies that species (or kinds) gradually transformed themselves into other or new species.

Alien theorists also jump to the conclusion that people in Biblical times were so ignorant that they mistook aliens for God or angels. There seems to be an element of pride permeating this kind of thought as if to say, “We know more now because we are smarter.” In truth, Adam and Eve had the best intellect in the history of mankind because God saw that everything He made on earth was good. I assume that Adam and Eve used 100% of the brain that God before sin’s curse took hold and had detrimental effects farther and deeper than we realize. Still, humans have shown throughout history to be very intelligent. Just because technology has increased, which God predicted would happen in the Last Days (Daniel 12:4), it does not mean that human IQs have increased. This is a huge difference that often gets lost in discussions today.

Here are examples of Scriptures that alien theorists use to support their claims:

Genesis 6:1-22 – When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. …

Genesis 6:4 – The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.

Exodus 13:21 – And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.

Exodus 14:19-25 – Then the angel of God who was going before the host of Israel moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud moved from before them and stood behind them, coming between the host of Egypt and the host of Israel. And there was the cloud and the darkness. And it lit up the night without one coming near the other all night. Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. The Egyptians pursued and went in after them into the midst of the sea, all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. …

Exodus 19:16-18 – On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people in the camp trembled. Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain. Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke because the Lord had descended on it in fire. The smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain trembled greatly.

Numbers 9:15-22 – On the day that the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony. And at evening it was over the tabernacle like the appearance of fire until morning. So it was always: the cloud covered it by day and the appearance of fire by night. And whenever the cloud lifted from over the tent, after that the people of Israel set out, and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the people of Israel camped. At the command of the Lord the people of Israel set out, and at the command of the Lord they camped. As long as the cloud rested over the tabernacle, they remained in camp. Even when the cloud continued over the tabernacle many days, the people of Israel kept the charge of the Lord and did not set out. …

Ezekiel 1:1-28 – In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God. On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin), the word of the Lord came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the Chebar canal, and the hand of the Lord was upon him there. As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal. And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, …

2 Samuel 22:8-16 – Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations of the heavens trembled and quaked, because he was angry. Smoke went up from his nostrils, and devouring fire from his mouth; glowing coals flamed forth from him. He bowed the heavens and came down; thick darkness was under his feet. He rode on a cherub and flew; he was seen on the wings of the wind. He made darkness around him his canopy, thick clouds, a gathering of water. …

2 Kings 2:11 – And as they still went on and talked, behold, chariots of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Zechariah 5:1-2 – Again I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, a flying scroll! And he said to me, “What do you see?” I answered, “I see a flying scroll. Its length is twenty cubits, and its width ten cubits.”

Anytime God speaks to humans in the Biblical records, the content is good, never evil. So if God (and His angels) are nothing more than aliens with higher intelligence than humans (which I do not believe), then should we not obey the messages?! But this is never the theme promoted by these programs and movies. They will not comment on what God said to prophets. This is not important to these theorists. The spirit behind these people has a two-fold purpose:

  1. to further undermine the authority of God’s Word to mankind and
  2. to get people away from the belief in an all-powerful, all-loving, great sacrificing Creator, Someone who is worthy of our worship.

When these programs do present an alleged Christian perspective, it’s usually a liberal member of the clergy who is expressing his/her own interpretations. I have yet to see or read any of these programs include a formidable Biblical rebuttal to theories of ancient aliens. While most UFO sitings are easily explained away, some are not. The credible ones can be divided into these possible categories:

  1. real craft, not from earth
  2. real craft made by man in military secrecy
  3. real craft made by man with assistance from extraterrestrials
  4. real craft made by extraterrestrials
  5. totally demonic activity or demonic illusion.

The case for the existence of at least some real UFO aircraft (as opposed to demonic illusions) is a strong one. They have been observed in recent times by credible people such as fighter pilots from several countries, astronauts, commercial airline pilots, military security personnel, and even a group of 62 school children in Africa. One example of an alleged flying saucer created by a human is that of famous inventor Nicola Tesla’s flying saucer. He apparently possessed scientific knowledge far in advance of his time. At times he would have instant revelations, but he also suffered from hallucinations and tormenting thoughts. Some other people have claimed to have instantaneous ability to read and write hieroglyphics, but also had been in contact with eight so-called “spirit guides.” Alien researcher Guy Malone has concluded that after working for 13 years on this issue, involvement always has led to “bad fruit and New Age cult thinking.”

Alleged alien abductions rarely if ever occur with strong Christians and there appears to be a frequent correlation between people who claim to have had abduction experiences with occult activities. If not them, it may be family members. However, this is not true in every case which does make me wonder what “in the world” is going on.

If demons are involved, they are totally evil, although they can appear to be good (2 Cor. 11:14-15). They are not aliens from other planets. They have been here on earth from the beginning (or maybe when they were cast out of heaven to earth when Jesus came – Luke 10:18 & Revelation 12:1-9). They will always get uncomfortable if a person speaks of Jesus Christ, and when they are commanded to go away in His name, they go (assuming the person is in right relationship with Jesus). Consider this Scripture concerning the Last Days, “Woe to the inhabitors of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Revelation 12:12). Also this one, “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 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 12:7-9). has information from a Christian who did research about former MUFON investigator turned Christian Joe Gordon. MUFON (The Mutual UFO Network) maintains that greys are trying to help us evolve.

One of Joe’s cases involved a new Christian named Bill D. During an alleged alien abduction he cried out “Jesus, help me!” and the encounter immediately stopped. When Joe contacted other MUFON investigators to see if they had had similar cases, they would only agree to talk to Joe if it was ‘off the record’ for fear of their careers. The truth was they all knew of similar accounts of abductions being stopped by people praying, singing hymns or calling on the name of Jesus. But because it was ‘religious in nature’ and not ‘scientific’, the evidence was being deliberately ignored and actually hidden. Joe’s CE4 group knew there must be more cases with which they could expose the deception. A newspaper, Florida Today, reported on CE4’s initial findings. The story went viral via the press and Internet, and suddenly, lots of people were contacting CE4 sharing similar testimonies.

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

Given the number of unexplainable sightings every year, however, there should be a virtual queue of extraterrestrial craft entering our atmosphere. But this has never been detected. Although the majority of sightings are explainable as natural or man-made phenomena, or psychological delusions, some are not so easy to dismiss. Regardless of whatever one may think they are, the evidence suggests that they are already here, that is, emanating from the earth. Coupled with this is the circumstantial evidence of the contactees. These people from differing countries, backgrounds and careers seem to share a very common experience. It appears that the messages they are receiving from these so-called ‘aliens’ are aimed at rewriting the Bible’s history. For example, many of them claim that they are the creators of life on earth via the process of evolution, in contrast to God who created everything supernaturally in six days. Other common messages imply that Jesus Christ was an advanced extraterrestrial who will be returning in his spaceship.

I do not believe that advanced extraterrestrials are traveling millions of light years across the universe (if they could find us in the first place) just to recondition our spiritual beliefs.

Christians can see the obvious deception by Satan and his cohorts through the nature of these messages. Uncomfortable as we may be by the thought of increasing contact by the spiritual enemies of God, it is happening. The reason is that popular beliefs about evolution, extraterrestrial life and the possibility of interstellar space travel have made even the average person in the street susceptible to such deceptions.

The “Bottom Line” Outline:

I. Summary of Several Claims by Ancient Alien Theorists.

A. God is just a more evolved physical being.

B. Alien beings are called “greys” because so many people have similar descriptions of what they encountered.

C. Many people claim to have been abducted by aliens

  • Most had terrifying and sometimes painful experiences.
  • Some report that greys are good and are trying to help humanity.
  • Many became literally paralyzed so greys could “work” on them.

D. Ancient man has been periodically visited by aliens who gave them super advanced technology.

E. UFO connections and descriptions are in the Bible and ancient man did not know enough to describe them in a way that would fit our knowledge of aliens.

  • Ezekiel’s wheel, Noah’s Ark (was a space ships that saved humans and animals while earth flooded), pyramid construction, Ark of the Covenant (was a radio transmitter that not only communicated with Moses, but emitted deadly voltage to anyone who touched it), Mt.Sinai and Moses (UFO landed and an alien talked with him), the pillar of fire and cloud during the exodus, “the sons of god“ in Genesis 6, Elijah taken up in the sky by a chariot.
  • Scripture References used include: Ezek 1:1-28; Genesis 6:1-22; Exodus 13:21; 2 Kings 2:11; Numbers 9:15-22; Exodus 19:16-18; Exodus 14:19-25.

F. Etchings of alien beings from many years ago.

II. The Christian Response:

A. Claims by ufologists should not be quickly dismissed by Christians

  • There are too many “normal” people making claims
  • Descriptions have many similarities
  • Christians use the same reasons cited above to “prove” the resurrection so it is not fair or consistent for us to reject those reasons.
  • Ufologists’ claims are becoming widely spread in our culture today, so to ignore them or quickly brush them off, makes it appear like we are the “blind, ignorant, close-minded ones.”

B. The “Discernment Key” = The “Common Thread” – after all the facts and data are in, look for common themes, claims, or effects the experiences produce on people.

C. “Threads” I’ve perceived over the years

  • Many people who connect with “aliens” have been involved with the occult and/or New Age activities
  • Strong Christians are rarely involved.
  • When a strong Christian is involved, uttering the name of Jesus stops or interferes with alien activity.
  • According to former member of MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) and now Christian Joe Gordon, this kind of information has been censored by other ufologists.
  • Claims tend to make people doubt the Scriptures.
  • Makes Christianity appear like an out-dated, ignorant superstitious belief system.
  • Huge promotion of evolution (this spirit asserts that humans will eventually become gods; its root comes from Genesis 3:5 which was Satan‘s second lie to mankind).
  • So-called alien statements contradict the Bible
  • Masks the essential communication between Creator and mankind – ignores what this being or beings are saying – be humble, be kind, can’t be good enough to have life so there is a provision for us (Jesus as the sacrificial lamb). So even if Jesus was an “advanced grey” (which I do not believe), shouldn’t we still follow Him? No one else in history was better! Alien theorists will never say this.

D. The Ignored Message Needs to be Told – alien theorists are obsessed with convincing others that there is no supernatural, all-knowing, all-loving God that created us. It was these aliens who did this and if we learn their knowledge, we too will evolve into a superior race. This sounds like Satan’s lie to Eve – “You shall not die…in fact you’ll become like God.” Jesus described Satan as the father of all lies. I guess it comes down to whose words will we trust – Jesus’ or some ufologist?

For a more in depth Christian response, go to:

Scriptures supporting the ‘demonic theory”:

2 Thessalonians 2:9 – The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders….

Ephesians 6:12 – 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.

2 Corinthians 11:14 – And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

In summation, there is much reading and research to be studied about this issue. I confess that mine was not exhaustive, therefore there are probably many things left out in this essay. I tend to judge things by their fruit, and the fruit of Ufology is not good according to Biblical standards. If “greys” exist, I do not think they are friends of our Lord, and I reject the notion that Jesus was simply a powerful grey (and even if He is, He is still worth obeying and dying for because of what He did). Maybe for some people it all comes down to who or what they trust, a long lasting Bible which has turned millions of bad people into much better people by a wonderful, unchanging message to humankind, or some latest theory perpetuated by folks who really are not interested in what God has said to us. Jesus said it best (as usual), “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand” (John 10:27-28). Not even the greys? Not even the greys. My advice to you if you ever are confronted by one is to not fear and rebuke it in the name of Jesus Christ….and enjoy what follows.


J: Dave, not sure if you ever read the book by Chuck Missler- “Alien Encounters” was the name, I believe. Interesting book, to say the least. One part I remember is that all those who supposedly had close contact had messages that contradicted Scripture, lending more credence to the fact that, while they probably exist (since there IS a spiritual realm), they are undoubtedly demonic.

Dave: No, I have not read Missler’s book, but many of the Christian sources seem to be saying what he claims. The best Scripture to support this belief is 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, which says, “….for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light, therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.” Many reports have people saying that these so-called “greys” are good.

J: It was a bit unnerving reading it. I have a feeling we’d shrink into the fetal position if we saw the spiritual warfare going on around us!

Dave: Yeah, it’s probably God’s wisdom that prevents that from happening.
