UFOs are Demons

Occultism is the doorway to the spirit dimension. The purpose of occult practices is to open this doorway and gain contact with spirits. We should understand that any spirit involved with teaching esoteric information to man is in rebellion against God and His commandments since the Bible directly forbids contacting the spirit world through occultism (Exodus 22:18; Leviticus 19:26; Deuteronomy 18:10-12; Joshua 13:22; 1 Samuel 15:1-25; 2 Kings 17:17; 18:10-12; 21:6; 1 Chronicles 10:13-14; 2 Chronicles 33:6; Isaiah 8:19; 19:3; 47:8-15; Jeremiah 10:2; 27:9-10; Daniel 1:18-20; 2:1-49; 4:1-37; 5:7-15; Micah 5:12-15; Acts 16:16-24; Galatians 5:19-21; Revelation 21:8). These spirits giving revelation to people that practice the occult can only be Satan’s angles deceiving the world (Revelation 12:9). What the Bible would declare as a demon, many occultists would consider their guardian angel that gives them revelations from God. Many authors have recorded mediums receiving such messages from UFO communications. “Angelucci was not the first to encounter beings from another planet. Helene Smith, a Swiss medium even created a Martian language assisted by her Guardian Angel… as long ago as 1912.”1)Malcolm Godwin, Angels: An Endangered Species, Simon & Schuster Inc., 1990, p. 190 The evidence of UFOs and an Occult connection is overwhelming.2)see Heath Henning, “UFO: Occult Connection,” April 20, 2020; https://truthwatchers.com/ufo-occult-connection/

It is no surprise that many of the leading Ufologists have confirmed that alien abductions clearly resemble accounts of demons throughout history. Lynn E. Catoe reported, “A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomena like poltergeist [ghost] manifestation and ‘possession.’ Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomena.”3)Lynn E. Catoe, UFOs and Related Subjects: USGPO, 1969; prepared under AFOSR Project Order 67-0002 and 68-0003 Dr. Pierre Guerin wrote, “UFO behaviour is more akin to magic than to physics as we know it… the modern UFOnauts and the demons of past days are probably identical.”4)Dr. Pierre Guerin, FSR Vol. 25, No. 1, p. 13-14 John Keel noted, “UFO’s do not seem to exist as tangible, manufactures objects. They do not conform to the natural laws of our environment. They seem to be nothing more than transmogrifications tailoring themselves to our abilities to understand. The thousands of contacts with the entities indicate that they are liars and put-on artists. The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon[.]”5)John A. Keel, UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse, p. 299 Even governmental investigations have concluded this as fact.

In 1950, after a rash of flying saucer reports, the British Royal Air Force reopened its UFO investigation. This clandestine research operation was five years in duration, and on April 24, 1955, a RAF spokesman told the press that the UFO study had been completed to the government’s satisfaction, but that the finding could not be released to the public without causing a great controversy and revealing top secret information….

In mid 1955, RAF Air Marshall Lord Dowding gave a lecture in which he openly discussed the UFO investigation to some length. He stated that the phenomenon commonly known as unidentified flying objects:

1. Were PARAPHYSICAL in nature. They were not made of matter as we know it, but were spiritual in substance.

2. Were immortal in nature. The UFOs were not flying saucers as such, but were immortal beings who could manifest themselves in various forms, including human forms.

3. Could render themselves invisible to human eye. They have the ability to materialize and dematerialize as will.6)R. Alan Street, The Invaders: A Biblical Study of UFOs, 1975, p. 16-17

            Even the reports of sexual assaults on the abductees resemble historical accounts of encounters with demons. Modern secular scientists, have found the identical descriptions of the incubus of the middle ages and the sexual experiments of the recent reports of alien abductions. “The ‘medical examination’ to which abductees are said to be subjected, often accompanied by sadistic sexual manipulation, is reminiscent of the medieval tales of encounters with demons. It makes no sense in a sophisticated or technical framework: any intelligent being equipped with the scientific marvels that UFOs possess would be in a position to achieve any of these alleged scientific objectives in a shorter time and with fewer risks.”7)Jacquess Vallee, Confrontations, Ballantine Books, 1990, p. 13 The early Church fathers have recorded their common belief in demons having physical relationships with women. Augustine related the common view in the fifth century about demons, stating, “There is, too, a very general rumor, which many have verified by their own experience, or which trustworthy persons who have heard the experience of others corroborate, that sylvans and fauns, who are commonly called ‘incubi,’ had often made wicked assaults upon women, and satisfied their lust upon them; and that certain devils, called Duses by the Gauls, are constantly attempting and effecting this impurity is so generally affirmed, that it were impudent to deny it.”8)Augustine, City of God, book 15, chapter 23; https://www.newadvent.org/fathers/120115.htm

Modern secular investigators acknowledge these factors that are so generally affirmed. Jacques Vallee relates,

 I pointed out in Indivisible College That the structure of abduction stories was identical to that of occult initiation rituals. Several years before, I had shown in Passport to Magonia that contact with ufonauts was only a modern extension of the age-old tradition of contact with nonhuman consciousness in the form of angels, demons, elves, and sylphs. Such contact includes abduction, ordeal (including surgical operations), and sexual intercourse with the aliens. It often leaves marks and scars on the body and the mind, as do UFO abductions.9)Jacques Vallee, Confrontations, Ballantine Books, 1990, p.159

Occultists have even confessed that these aliens they so highly exalt with their religious zeal are indeed demons. Former New Ager Randall Baer, at one point in his life, held UFO contact sessions along with other occult practices at his New Age center in New Mexico. When he came to the saving knowledge of God’s grace, he wrote of his experiences in the New Age Movement, and found it appropriate to quote evangelist Brook Alexander when he wrote, “A lot of the characteristics that attend UFO ‘close encounters’ are also highly characteristic of demonic encounters… More than anything else, the thing that we came to understand was that these UFO’s are not extraterrestrial space vehicles, but they are extrademensional beings.”10)Brooks Alexander quoted by Randall N. Baer, Inside the New Age Nightmare, 1989, p. 108 Others have documented the overwhelming change in the views of many New Agers and Ufologists to report that the increasing evidence of UFO sightings are spiritual in nature. “Meanwhile, many UFOlogy advocates have switched to an untestable view: UFOs are ‘ghostlike things from some higher plane of reality, perhaps illusions created in our minds by alien superbeings.’”11)Russell Chandler, Understanding the New Age, Zondervan Publishing House, 1993, p.90

Some New Agers have openly hinted at their belief is that the UFO’s are sprits. Brad Steiger says, “I have even come to suspect that in some instances, what we have been calling ‘spaceships’ may actually be a form of higher intelligence rather than vehicles transporting occupants.”12)Brad Steiger, Gods of Aquarius: UFO’s and the Transformation of Man, Berkley Books, 1983, p. 6 In the same book, Brad Steiger records an interview with a New Age seer named Kathleen Karter. When she was asked “what do you think their [the UFO’s] influences is?” she replied, “It’s a spiritual one, primarily. Right now I feel the spiritual influences are playing upon the earth very forcefully. I think that, as we enter the Aquarian Age, Man will undergo more experiences with UFO’s.”13) Brad Steiger, Gods of Aquarius: UFO’s and the Transformation of Man, Berkley Books, 1983, p. 234 Jacques Vallee warned us that the aliens are engaging in a “world wide enterprise of subliminal seduction.”14)Jacques Vallee, Messengers of Deception: UFO Contact and Cults, Ronin Pub., 1979, p. 19 New Agers that claim to be receiving revelations from them, are also telling us that it will increase as we move towards the Age of Aquarius. “In the last 30 years the extraterrestrials have been accelerating their interaction with us in preparation for a fast-approaching time of transition and transformation.”15)Brad Steiger, God’s of Aquarius: UFO’s and the Transformation of Man, Berkley Books, 1983,, 1976, p. 40

In fact, the evidence for the UFO’s not physically existing but only as spiritual entities is so blatant, that even an outspoken evolutionist, that should deny anything of a spiritual nature has made these very same conclusions. Carl Sagan suggests:

…most of the central elements of the alien abduction account are present, including sexually obsessive non-humans who live in the sky, walk through walls, communicate telepathically, and perform breeding experiments on the human species. Unless we believe that demons really exist, how can we understand so strange a belief system, embraced by the whole Western world (including those considered the wisest among us), reinforced by personal experience in every generation, and taught by Church and State? Is there any real alternative besides a shared delusion based on common brain wiring and chemistry?16)Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World, Ballantine Books, 1996, p. 124

Carl Sagan was the man in charge of the SETI program which is searching the universe for signs of life. His sole purpose of finding life on another planet is to prove evolution. His impression is that either the whole of Western society is sharing a psychological delusion, or these UFOs are demons. He preferred the psychological delusion option.

But even a humanist such as Carl Sagan must admit that these sightings challenge the very ideology of naturalism. Many have been forced to this conclusion if they are to interpret the UFO phenomenon with an unbiased view point.

The alien beings that appear to come to us from the sky in strange spacecraft present a particularly confusing challenge to such a naturalistic or objectivist ideology. For they seem to partake of properties belonging to both the spirit and the material worlds, bridging, as if effortlessly, the division between these realms which have become increasingly sacred and unreachable since science and religion went their separate ways in the 17th century. On the one hand these beings seem able to be seen by the abductees, who feel their bodies moved and find small lesions inflicted upon them. On the other hand the beings seem to come, like intermediaries from God or the devil, from a nonembodied source, and they are able to open the consciousness of abductees to realms of being that do not exist in the physical world as we know it.17)John Mack, Abduction: Human Encounters with Aliens, Ballantine Books, 1994, p. 404-405

            Whitely Strieber, the fictional horror author who has indicted his own experience of being abducted, has expressed feelings that his abductors were demons.

Increasingly I felt as if I were entering a struggle that might even be more than life and death. It might be a struggle for my soul, my essence, or whatever part of me might have reference to the eternal. There are worse things than death, I suspected… so far the word demon had never been spoken among the scientists and doctors who were working with me… Alone at night I worried about the legendary cunning of demons … At the very least I was going stark, raving mad.18)Whitley Strieber, Transformation, Avon Books, 1988, p. 44-45

He further expressed, “I wondered if I might not be in the grip of demons, if they were not making me suffer for their own purposes, or simply for their enjoyment.”19)Whitley Strieber, Transformation, Avon Books, 1988, p. 172 He added elsewhere, “I felt an absolutely indescribable sense of menace. It was hell on earth to be there [in the presence of the entities], and yet I couldn’t move, couldn’t cry out, couldn’t get away. I’d lay as still as death, suffering inner agonies. Whatever was there seemed so monstrously ugly, so filthy and dark and sinister. Of course they were demons. They had to be. And they were here and I couldn’t get away.”20)Whitley Strieber, Transformation, Avon Books, 1988, p. 181

Other secular UFOlogists have concluded that demonology is a strange but obviously fitting theory for alien encounters. Jacques Vallee records, “I am also tempted to accept as a working hypothesis that in remote contact occurred between human consciousness and another consciousness, variously described as demonic, angelic, or simply alien.”21)Jacques Vallee, Dimensions: A Casebook  of Alien Contact, Ballantine Books, 1988, p. 32 John Keel elaborates:

Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology. It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have seemingly coexisted with man throughout history. Thousands of books have been written on the subject, many of them authored by educated clergymen, scientists and scholars, and uncounted numbers of well-documented demonic events are readily available to every researcher. The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not entirely identical, to the UFO phenomenon itself. Victims of demon mania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees…. The Devil and his demons can, according to the literature, manifest themselves in almost any form and can physically imitate anything from angels to horrifying monsters with glowing eyes. Strange objects and entities materialize and dematerialize in these stories, just as the UFOs and their splendid occupants appear and disappear, walk through walls, and perform other supernatural feats.22)John Keel, Operation Trojan Horse, Illuminet Press, 1996 edition, p. 192

            Christian authors who have investigated the UFO phenomena have consistently concluded that these sightings and alleged abductions experiences are indeed demonic. Kurt Koch indicated, “The explanation that these UFO beings are to be thought of as materialized demons has the most justification. The mass of evidence for this is overwhelming…. UFO’s appear most frequently in countries where the cults of Satan flourishes. This provides us with our chief arguments. UFO’s and occult practices run parallel. It is clear they have the same origin.”23)Kurt E. Koch, Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies, Kregel Publications, 2nd edition, 1986, p. 340-341 John Weldon and Zola Levitt concluded, “No acceptable theory is capable of explaining all UFO phenomena, except the demonic theory.”24)John Weldon with Zola Levitt, UFOs: What on Earth is Happening? Harvest House Publishing, 1975, p. 167 Walter Martin affirmed,

From a Christian standpoint, those who communicate with UFOs and extraterrestrial beings have always delivered messages contrary to the Bible. This can be attributed in a large part to the occult methods that they employ when they receive their messages. Christians may not have ready answers to every question about UFO sightings, but in the face of extraterrestrial doctrine, no question remains as to the source of the message: spiritual beings opposed to God’s truth and thus, demonic in nature.25) Walter Martin, Jill Martin Rische and Kurt Van Gorden, The Kingdom of the Occult, Thomas Nelson (Nashville, Tennessee: 2008), p. 370

Clifford Wilson also exposed these matter:

In U.F.O’s and Their Mission Impossible we also come down to the para-physical explanation, and we discuss the fact that there are many parallels with happenings associated with the occult. Ultimately we come to the point, based on objective evidence, that U.F.O’s are a Satanic device. They are basically evil, and they are a special phenomenon of the generation we now live in. This ‘demonic argument’ is not limited to writers with a strong Christian commitment. Because of parallels with historic happenings associated with demonic forces, the argument has been acknowledged by researchers as demanding credence.26)Clifford Wilson, The War of the Chariots, Master Books, 1978, p.123

Christian apologist Ron Rhodes recorded evidence that should confirm beyond doubt that these alien experiences can be nothing less than demonic encounters.

UFO researchers Joe Jordan (of MUFON) and Wes Clark say they have verifiable cases in which apparent abduction experiences were halted in the name of Jesus. Jordan says there may be as many as 400 such cases documentable nationwide.

            “It makes you wonder-If these beings are extraterrestrial at all, why would they respond to the name?” Jordan asks. “We think we found the answer in the Bible, in Mark 16:17, where Jesus said, ‘In my name they shall cast out demons.’ That seems to be exactly what we came across.”

            According to Jordan, three other UFO researchers informed him (off the record) that they had come across similar cases. “They were afraid of their credibility,” Jordan says. “They felt they already had put their credentials out far enough dealing with extraterrestrials.”

            One abductee reported: “I thought I was having a satanic experience, that the Devil had gotten hold of me and had shoved a pole up my rectum and was holding me up in the air… so helpless. I couldn’t do anything.” This abductee was actually a nonreligious person, but he had been to church a few times with his wife. He recollects that when he encountered this experience-

I said, ”Jesus, Jesus, help me,” or. “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!” And when I did, there was a feeling or a sound or something. That either my words that I had thought, or the words that I had tried to say or whatever, hurt whatever was holding me up in the air on this pole.

            The abductee reported that as he appealed to the name of Jesus, “I felt like [the object] was withdrawn, and I fell. I hit the bed, because it was like I was thrown back, in the bed. I really can’t tell what it was. But when I did, my wife woke up and asked why I was jumping on the bed.”

            If indeed these entities respond to the name of Jesus, does this not give us a strong clue about the true identity of these “extraterrestrials”? The fact that these entities cease their evil deeds when the authority of Jesus- the Lord of the universe-is appealed to add an exclamation point to the evidence already presented that they are in reality demonic spirits.27)Ron Rhodes, Alien Obsession, Harvest House, 1998, p. 169-171

           John Weldon and Zola Levitt also expressed an interesting factor from history. “There Are very few reports of sightings in the first 500 years of the Christian era. Following the first coming of Jesus Christ, the UFO activity seems to have abated until the Dark Ages, or at least the written records bear little mention of it.”28)John Weldon with Zola Levitt, UFO: What on Earth is Happening? Harvest House Publishing, 1975, p. 26 This is further confirmed by secular researchers. “Cloudships and Luminous Strangers start popping up again in about the sixth century A.D. Glowing aerial objects become evident again in the literature of many countries. …practically every year of the Dark Ages saw reports of ‘luminous strangers’ being made.”29)Jacques Bergier, Extraterrestrial Visitations from Prehistoric Times to the Present, Signet, New York, NY, 1974, p. 89 This proves the truth of the prophecies of an end times apostasy growing larger as the world progresses closer to the Lord’s return (1 Timothy 4:1-3; 2 Timothy 3:1-9; 2 Peter 3:3-10). Christian theologians would agree with this position. “A similar increase in activity of demons is predicted for the close of this age and in the great tribulation.”30)Lewis Sperry Chafer, Systematic Theology, Dallas Seminar Press, Dallas Texas, 1947, Vol. 2, p. 117 We should expect that as America becomes more and more influence by the neo-pagan New Age spirituality and secularism, the deception of UFO will increase.
