At one of my past conferences I stated that Aliens and UFOs are manifestations and creations of Satan and his angels. They are designed to deceive people into accepting evolution and rejecting God as both Creator and Savior. Since then I have been asked to provide more information on these fallen angels, so let’s see what Scripture has to say about them.
All angels, both good and bad, were created by God. According to Exodus 20:11, they were all created during Creation Week:the six literal days of creation as described in Genesis 1. According to Job 38:4-7, the sons of God (what Scripture references as angels) shouted for joy and watched as God laid down the foundations of the earth. I think it would be good Biblical speculation that all the angels were created sometime during the first two days of creation.
The word angel in the Greek and malak in the Hebrew both mean messenger. Angels are agents of God to carry out all his purposes. They are spiritual beings, yet can take physical form. They can appear as men (male) when doing God’s bidding (Gen 19:1 and Luke 24:4). There are probably hundreds of millions of angels (Heb 12:22 and Rev 5:11) and they even have names such as Gabriel, Michael and yes, Lucifer. They can appear so real as human beings that we may meet them and not know it (Heb 13:2) and that even the men of Sodom desired to have homosexual relations with them.
Angels are also more powerful then men (2 Thessalonians 1:7-8 and 2 Pet 2:11) and they also can kill at the command of God (Ex 12:23). Satan himself can masquerade as an angel of light (2 Cor 11:14) and “his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.” In Revelation 12:14 I believe Scripture tells us that approximately one third of the angels were ejected from heaven and cast to the earth and now roam the earth with Satan (Job 1:7). These cast down angels (fallen angels) also have the ability to possess humans as seen in Luke 11:24-26 and Scripture clearly teaches that Satan and his followers are out to deceive and destroy mankind ever since that day in the Garden with Eve. Because of all this I believe that Satan and his followers have immense powers that are used to deceive and control humans and are the root cause of aliens and UFO sightings as I stated in my presentation.
The following paragraphs are my opinion based on my reading of the Scriptures although many theologians I have spoken to and have read believe the same.
In the past, I believe that these fallen angels have tried to destroy mankind and ruin the “line of Christ”. This is spoken of in Scripture in Genesis 6: 1-7. This is a hotly contested passage where “sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose” and ….. “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown”. I believe that a simple reading of Scripture here and in other passages clearly show that these “sons of God” (bene elohim) were angels and because of what they did they had to be fallen angels. “Bene elohim” is used six times in the Old Testament and in the passages outside Genesis (as in Job) it clearly refers to angels. This particular passage shows that these fallen angels, whether directly in the form of men or by possessing men, bred with human women and whose offspring were the Nephilim. The literal meaning of Nephilim is “fallen ones” from the Hebrew root word Naphal.
Why should one believe that these were fallen angels rather than Godly men of Seth breeding with ungodly women as some people have believed? There are two passages in Scripture that give more information about Genesis 6. In Jude 6-7, God tells us that there are “angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode” and who are “kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day”. This passage clearly links the perverted sexual practices of Sodom and Gomorrah with angels who have not “kept their own domain”. They are kept in chains awaiting judgment day and not allowed to roam the earth as other fallen angels because of what they did. These angels did something so bad that God placed them in everlasting chains in hell.
In 2 Pet 2:4-5, God tells us that he did not spare these angels but sent them to hell (tartarus) for their sin. This word for hell is only used here in Scripture and this passage ties these angels to the time of Noah and the “sons of God” in Genesis 6. In 1 Pet 3:18-20, this passage may also tie these same angels to the time of Noah where it states that Jesus “went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison, who once were disobedient.” These spirits were in prison which is a good reference to chains. Is it possible that angels could have sexual intercourse with human women and conceive children? If that were possible what would be the status of those children who were part human and part angel? I will leave those questions to later. In the meantime, study those passages and the surrounding context and tell me what you believe they mean.
