Have you noticed the recent attraction
to UFOs and aliens? They seem to be a part of everything, everywhere
a person goes. They are seen regularly on TV, and there are many
popular movies and books written about them. There are stuffed
animals and balloons made of them, also cups, stickers, and even
guitar picks that have their faces on them. There are bumper stickers
telling us to believe in them. Everywhere we go and everything
we do, we usually end up seeing their faces somewhere. Why is
this? Especially when we hear that they abduct people against
their will and perform experiments on them. Still, they are very
popular. What had started out in fear years ago has now turned
to faith in them among our society. They have become a new religion.
THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT
Many in the New Age movement believe in an "evolutionary quantum leap" or "paradigm shift" from which these Aliens will intercede in the world's normal affairs. Some New Agers who refer themselves as channelers (those who communicate with spirit entities) have said that they have communicated with these Aliens and have been told that anyone not prepared or ready for this evolutionary jump will be taken (or abducted) out of the way. These aliens have even been called "counselors" who will help us through the many changes that are coming to this earth. They also claim that they are our "creators".
The Bible, God's word, teaches us much differently. It teaches us that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back for His church (all who have accepted Him as Lord and Savior). This is called the Rapture of the Church. Believers wait for this blessed hope. "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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words". (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)
The Bible warns us that there is going to be a great deception in the last days. "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (II Thessalonians 2:9-12). The Bible is telling us all who refuse the truth of God's son Jesus Christ and refuse to accept Jesus, as their Lord and Savior will believe in these deceptions. If we reject the truth that God has given us in His Son Jesus, God has no choice but to let us believe this lie of Satan.
A FALSE GOSPEL?
Are these aliens really creatures from outer space, or are they of a demonic nature? Could this be a part of the strong delusion that the Bible speaks about? No one knows except God, but He does make it clear in His word that we should not have anything to do with something that preaches another Gospel. "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" (Galations 1:8). The Aliens are preaching a New Age Gospel and their main concern seems to be to change the way people think about God and to change the Bible, God's holy word. The Bible is very clear that no one can change God's word, or it is a lie. Satan only comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). These abductions have ruined many people lives and have lured others farther into occults practices. Satan will become anything a person is willing to believe in order to lead that person away from the true God of the Bible. "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 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" (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).
JESUS WILL RETURN!
When Jesus returns for His saints, all true born-again Christians will be taken off this earth to be with their Lord Jesus. Will Satan's lie be that aliens abducted all of these Christians? Remember, Satan is the Father of lies and what would be a better excuse for him than to tell such a story to the world which has so hastily come to accept aliens. "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil" (Isaiah 5:20).
God does not want you to be deceived by this false gospel the aliens are proclaiming. He loves you. He wants you to make His son Jesus Christ the Lord of your life. He wants you to be saved. "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" (John 3:16-17).
The Bible tells us, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; and, the wages of sin is death". Because of man's sinfulness, Jesus shed His blood and died on the cross so mankind could be forgiven. Three days later, He rose from the dead and ascended back into heaven. He is still a living Lord and Savior! "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).
Today there are many lies in the world and many people do not know what to believe. My prayer for anyone reading this tract is that you would pray to God and ask Him to show you the truth. "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you" (James 4:8). "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13). If you truly seek God with all of your heart, He will show you the truth.
"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" (Romans 10:9-10).
To receive the Lord Jesus Christ into your life right now, just say a simple prayer like the one below, meaning it with all your heart:
Dear Lord God, I come to You a sinner and I humbly repent. I believe that Jesus is Lord and I believe You raised Him from the dead. Come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I receive You, Jesus, to change and take control of my life that I may live for You from this day forth and from now on. Thank You Lord for saving me and cleansing me with Your precious blood. In Jesus' name, Amen.
If you have called on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and have said that prayer or a prayer similar to it in your own words, and have believed it with all your heart, you will be saved! Words mean nothing without belief. If we truly believe we will let Christ change us and we will rejoice to live for Him each and every day. "But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him" (I John 2:5)
3 very important steps to take as a new Christian seeking to grow in the Lord:
1). Read the Bible daily (A good place to start is in the New Testament with the Gospel of John).
2). Pray daily.
3). Find a Bible believing church that preaches the full gospel of Christ. Pray that God will lead you to the right one. Fellowshipping with other believers is a very important step to grow in the Christian walk.
