For the second time this week, a Japanese politician has expressed their personal belief in the existence of UFOs. In response to a question last week by opposition lawmaker Ryuji Yamane, Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura said he personally believed UFOs were real, but that Japan had no UFO research programme nor an official policy for dealing with UFO encounters. The opposition member called on the government to develop a policy for dealing with UFOs, in response to the "incessant" number of sightings that are being reported. Japanese Defence Minister Shigeru Ishiba has now been drawn into the debate. Ishiba said he believed UFOs existed, and could be responsible for unnatural earth formations such as the Nazca lines and similar etchings in Peru. He has stated that Japan's pacifist constitution would make it illegal to mount a military response, so long as the extra-terrestrials declared their peaceful intentions.
Quote: ""There are no grounds for us to deny there are unidentified flying objects and some life-form that controls them,'' Ishiba said. "Few discussions have been held on what the legal grounds are'' for a military response. Ishiba said that, if the aliens arrived in Japan in peace, a military response would not be legal under the terms of Japan's pacifist Constitution. He also said he was concerned about communication difficulties if a UFO landed. ``If they descended, saying 'People of the Earth, let's make friends,' it would not be considered an urgent, unjust attack on our country,'' he said. "How can we convey our intentions if they don't understand what we are saying?''
And Japan isn't the only country where politicians have recently aired their belief in UFOs. Several US Presidents have said they have experienced UFO sightings, and one Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich has stated his personal belief in their existence. I recently watched a Christian drama on the UFO phenomenon. It portrayed two reporters, one skeptical and another a believer, who were called to investigate a UFO sighting. The film stated that UFO sightings always seemed to happen around people who were already involved in the occult. This article says that Dennis Kucinich is a close friend of New Age author Shirley MacLaine, and of course it is primarily the New Age movement that is proclaiming the message that these "space beings" are here to help mankind evolve to the next level of spiritual consciousness.
Quote: ""It was more than 25 years ago, I don't want to go into details right now because that is not why I am running for president, but I can affirm that I did see something and it was a UFO. But so have a lot of other Americans. "It's interesting to see how a lot of people start hyperventilating about this because it really says something more about them than about me. "Shirley is a dear friend of mine, but if I was writing a book I might give a slightly different account."
And of course we have the international panel of UFO experts who have called on the United States to re-open its UFO investigation programme. Perhaps some day the lid will be blown off the UFO cover-up. And as the public becomes more and more accepting of the UFO phenomenon, when millions of people disappear, it will be the natural thing for world leaders to announce that we are not alone. The book of Revelation states that half way through the tribulation period, earth will experience a heavenly invasion. For there will be a war in heaven (the first and second heavens - the atmosphere and outer space - 2nd Corinthians 12:2), and Satan and his angels will be cast down to the earth.
Mankind is not prepared for such an event. No military on earth can stop this invasion. The only power that is effective against this force is the blood of Jesus Christ. 1st John 4:4 says, "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world". Revelation 12:11 says, "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death". If you belong to Jesus Christ, no power in heaven or on earth can touch you (Romans 8:35-39). Praise God that Jesus Christ is coming back for those who have trusted in Him for salvation.
