Recent UFO sightings in China, Extraterrestrial phenomena and the Bible

text size A A A

According to CNN reports  "one of two recent UFO sightings in China occurred almost on the 63rd anniversary of news that a "flying disc" had been found in Roswell, New Mexico.And like in 1947, people either choose to believe or be sceptical that visitors have stopped by from outer space. Nothing has officially been ruled in or out by Chinese officials, who are looking into whether the objects were private or military aircraft, rocket flares, reflection in the sky or something else. The first sighting occurred at Hangzhou's Xiaoshan Airport, in the eastern part of the country, according to the state-controlled Xinhua news agency....Eighteen flights were delayed or rerouted and operations shut down after twinkling lights were spotted above the terminal around 9 p.m. July 7, the agency said. ..."

Deuteronomy 4 [15] Therefore take good heed to yourselves, since you saw no form of Him on the day the Lord spoke to you on Horeb out of the midst of the fire, [16] Beware lest you become corrupt by making for yourselves [to worship] a graven image in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female, [17] The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, or of any winged fowl that flies in the air, [18] The likeness of anything that creeps on the ground, or of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth. [19] And beware lest you lift up your eyes to the heavens, and when you see the sun, moon, and stars, even all the host of the heavens, you be drawn away and worship them and serve them, things which the Lord your God has allotted to all nations under the whole heaven.

I Cor 4[5] Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

Studies also establish that the majority of UFOs are observations of some real but conventional object-most commonly aircraft, balloons, or astronomical objects such as meteors or bright planets misidentified by the observer as anomalies, while a small percentage of reported UFOs are hoaxes. Only perhaps 5% of anomalous sightings can be truly classified as unidentified in the strictest sense.

Astrology, Horoscopes and the phenomenon of UFOs are examples of modern obsessions typified by inconclusive discourse and which God consistently warns not to give attention. The scriptures were not written to instruct us in astronomy, or in any of the physical sciences, but that we might have the certainty of life eternal...John 17[3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

The Bible teaches that God is the great controller of all our sight, hearing, speech, touch, taste and also other senses of balance, direction, motion and temperature etc. He is able to cause us to sense whatever He wills for His purpose. He caused the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots (that was not there) to frighten them off and achieve the transfer of wealth He desired. In similar ways He has mastery of all senses permitting the observation of whatever reality He determines. He can therefore go to battle not only with mighty angelic hosts but simply by twisting the senses as He wishes...even turning diviners insane...creating and assigning realities as He wills for as long as it pleases Him.

2 Kings 7[6] For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us. [7] Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was , and fled for their life. [8] And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid it ; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence also , and went and hid it.

God may not be against science but we cannot trust our detection apparatus or the logic of valid observations over simple truths of scripture. Opposition to the word of God by seeking esoteric truths in horoscopes, "Brotherhoods" and pseudo-science religious cults are vain. Indeed, God only needs to send an appropriate imagination, perpetuating a continued delusion - with the objective to punish peculiar rebellion against His already revealed word.

Ecclesiastes 12 [13] Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. [14] For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

There are secret things that God must bring into judgment Himself...ours is to fear God and keep His commandments. Beware, Christians are warned not to be involved in horoscopes or engaged in vain searches (pretending to be science) in spheres we are to shun.

Remain always blessed. Amen
