This from my friend Laura. Footage of an unidentified flying object hovering over the Dome of the Rock has left UFO experts agog. In the film, a glowing orb-like object is seen slowly descending over the Islamic shrine where it remains stationery for a few seconds, before rapidly accelerating again into space. The event was apparently recorded from four separate locations in Jerusalem, making the possibility of a deliberate hoax less likely. The clarity of the images and the fact that tourists can be heard in the background responding to the appearance of the object, and its sudden disappearance again, makes it much more difficult to dismiss.
Quote: "Some UFO enthusiasts believe the videos -- which have taken the Internet by storm -- are final proof that aliens exist, while others say the unidentified object was the Hebrew god Elohim. Adding to the mystery is the fact that flying over the Dome of the Rock landmark -- an ancient Islamic shrine -- is forbidden. Two witnesses at the Armon Hanatziv panoramic lookout near Mount Zion filmed the object at 1am on Saturday. A little after one minute into the clip, the object descends slowly, almost to ground level. Former Ministry of Defense UFO investigator Nick Pope said: "If these are real, they are some of the most incredible videos ever shot. "If they are not, then this is a very well-planned and coordinated hoax designed to eliminate elements of doubt.
Assuming the footage is indeed genuine, the question in my mind is, who was behind this incident and why? One possibility is that it could have been a manmade object. But then which government was behind it? And why was no clear message of intent delivered? And even if they had the technology to do this, it is extremely doubtful that the Israelis would bomb the Dome of the Rock now. Irreparable damage would be done to the Temple Mount, and the entire Islamic world would be united against them. Another possibility is that this orb was extra-terrestrial in origin. But then even if aliens exist, which they do not, and assuming they had the technology to do it, why would they bother sending a probe billions of light years across the galaxy just to park above the Temple Mount for a few brief seconds before shooting off again? As the article suggests, some have speculated that this could be the Hebrew God Elohim. But the Lord Jesus Christ was received up into heaven bodily from the Mount of Olives, not Mount Moriah. And the angels told the disciples in Acts 1:11 that He would return again in exactly the same manner, as described in Zechariah 14.
There is one other alternative, that this orb is a manifestation of a demonic spirit, and this is the most likely possibility in my mind. I do not believe that angelic spirits would appear in such a manner as to deceive people. But demonic spirits may. And I believe that Satan is intent on deceiving mankind into believing anything but the truth. You may remember a couple of years ago a story I commented on about a prominent Australian psychic by the name of Blossom Goodwin. She claimed to be in direct contact with extra-terrestrials calling themselves the Federation of Light. These beings were planning to 'materialize' a spacecraft above the skies of an American city in full view of the world's media, with the aim of proving once and for all that aliens existed. The aliens reportedly told Blossom that earth is heading towards a time of great calamity, and that their intention is to intervene and assist mankind in its transition to the next level of consciousness. A quote from Blossom's own writings stated, "We are beings from other planets, who for many eons of your time have been preparing for these days ahead... If we do not intervene now... as has been planned for eons of your earth time... then we fear it would be too late." But as I pointed out at the time, how are these aliens able to know the future of planet earth? Why the need to intervene specifically now, and not five or ten years ago? Why is contact only being made with individuals and not human governments? And why have they been planning this for eons of our time? It doesn't make any sense, until you look at it on a spiritual level.
Satan and his angels do know the future of mankind, but only what has been revealed by God through the Scriptures. Satan was able to misquote the Scriptures to the Lord Jesus Christ during the temptation in the wilderness (Matthew 4). In Revelation 12:12, Satan is also cast down to earth, having great wrath because he knows he has but a short time left. Satan is not omniscient, but he does know the Scriptures, and so has a limited knowledge of future events. Why the need to intervene specifically now? And why no contact with human governments? I think this is because he is restricted by God in what he is able to do. Satan's man, the antichrist, can only arise once He that hinders has been taken out of the way (2nd Thessalonians 2:7). I believe 'He that hinders' in this verse refers to the Holy Spirit working through the Church. But even if it is not, Satan can only go as far as the Lord permits (Job 2:6). And why the planning for eons of our time? Satan has of course been plotting man's downfall since the beginning of creation, since the very first murder (Genesis 4:8). His goal has always been to destroy mankind, and to prevent the arrival of the Messiah, the promised deliverer (Genesis 3:15).
Perhaps this object above the Temple Mount was a sort of 'dry run' for something bigger that is to happen in the not too distant future. Perhaps Satan is intent on manifesting some sort of UFO like the one Blossom describes, with the aim of uniting the world under one authority and presenting himself as the saviour of mankind from some yet-unseen calamity. Perhaps this could form part of the 'lie' which people will believe during the tribulation period (2nd Thessalonians 2:11), that the true believers were actually caught up into alien spacecraft rather than caught up to be with the Lord (1st Thessalonians 4:17). That is what the New Age is already teaching. As you can see, tremendous things are now happening in the Middle East. Massive political upheavals and now possible demonic manifestations. Christ's return is drawing near. One day Christ will come to the air. He is coming for all those who have trusted in Him for salvation, to take them to be with Him where He is (John 14:3). And it could all happen, quicker than this UFO appeared and disappeared again. One day you may wake up and be reading about it in your morning paper. Don't wait until it's too late. Turn away from your sins, and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation today.
