‘UNCLEAN SPIRITS’ are the spirits of the dead, GENETICALLY UNCLEAN HYBRID NEPHILIM, created by the unholy impregnation of human women by FALLEN ANGELS (NOT ‘ALIENS’) Fallen angels are NOT unclean spirits. UNCLEAN refers to the genetically corrupted or defiled NEPHILIM, ‘as in the days of Noah.’
10 (5+5) Biblical references or descriptions of ‘unclean spirits’. Those spirits who lust (even to this day) to possess a human body, in order to experience the ‘sensual’ that they enjoyed while existing in the abomination, defiled or corrupted form of the human/demonic NEPHILIM. The ‘FALLEN ANGELS’ or ‘WATCHERS’ have been chained in outer darkness. The ‘unclean’ NEPHILIM spirits they created are still roaming the earth, seeking those whom they may possess. Fallen angels cannot possess a human being.
Matthew 12:43-45 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
Mark 1:27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
Mark 3:11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
Mark 5:13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
Mark 6:7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
Luke 4:36 And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
Luke 6:18 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.
Acts 5:16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
Acts 8:7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.
Revelation 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 And then shall that Wicked be revealed [Man of Lawlessness, Son of Perdition, Beast, 8th King, Prince, First Rider / White Horseman, Antichrist], whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming [Christs second physical coming to earth at the end of the Great Tribulation]: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (Emphasis added, mine.)
A short Biblical look at ‘Fallen Angels / sons of God:’
There is no such thing as ‘aliens.’ Fallen angels in defiled, false, counterfeit, deceptive, grotesque satanic flesh appear as ‘aliens.’ Satan has made a mockery of ‘the imagers (human body) of God’ by attempting to duplicate God’s created body of man into a defiled, unclean, fleshly form that is a sick imager of Satan. Different ‘caste or ranking’ of angels manifest in different physical defiled forms. Just as the human spirit must dwell in flesh to exist in the physical world, some lower rankings of the demonic spirit realm must dwell in defiled flesh to exist in the physical world or physical dimension outside of the spiritual dimension. Once holy and bright in spiritual appearance, fallen angels are now grotesque, ugly and dark because of iniquity (just like Satan) and manifest as such. They now represent the likeness of Satan and some of his attributes, including lies, deception, advanced knowledge and a willingness to accept the ‘worship’ of men (as in antiquity). These particular ‘fallen angels’ in Satan’s army are the ‘foot soldiers’ who work on demand and at the bidding of Satan and/or other fallen angels in higher orders. They are the ‘lowest’ of the angelic realm in terms of rank, power, attributes, exercising of will and influence over men. They do NOT have power or influence over nations, states, cities, weather or other aspects of God’s physical creation. They carry out the ‘grunt’ work of Satan’s master plan. In Satan’s plan, those fallen angels (believed to be ‘aliens’) are sent to deceive men (a ‘great or strong delusion’).
Men want to believe in aliens, are lustful of advanced technology and knowledge for military purposes, and are ‘deluded’ into thinking that aliens are here to save them (or at least to offer them ‘help’) in tackling the various crisis occurring over the seven (7) year tribulation. The idea or belief that aliens could really be something entirely evil, Biblically speaking, is ‘preposterous’ to men. To those who do not love the truth, God will send a ‘strong delusion.’ The fallen angels come, not as man’s saviors, but for man’s destruction. Only Christ saves men spiritually and physically. Aliens are a lie or a delusion that men lustily believe in because they don’t want to believe the truth about this particular aspect of God’s creation that rebelled against the established order of created, spiritual beings. Yet, God still is in control of His creation, even over the fallen angels and Satan. God can, and does, use fallen angels to carry out His will, depending on His purpose. ‘A broken tool can still have some use.’
Rankings of both Holy and Fallen Angels (Highest to Lowest). Fallen angels were once holy angels, until they rebelled with Lucifer/Satan against God and His established order:
Revelation 12:7-12 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 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. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. [‘Angels’ are referenced three – 3 times, emphasis and intensity. Yes, there are evil, fallen angels, sons of God, or ‘Watchers.’)
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air [Satan, Dragon, Devil] the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Ephesians 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Psalm 78:49-50. He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them. He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
2 Thessalonians 2
2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness
These seven (7) verses indicate that a ‘strong delusion’ will be sent to men sometime during the seven (7) year tribulation. We know this because the first three (3) verses deal with the time period when the Holy Spirit (that holds evil at bay) is removed from the world and the ‘wicked’ man of sin or lawlessness rises up on the world stage. Verse 8 indicates that this is the same wicked man that will be destroyed at Christ’s physical, second coming to earth at the very last day of the seven (7) year tribulation. Men, during the seven (7) year tribulation are deceived because they don’t love the truth God gave mankind in the form of Jesus Christ. They are deceived spiritually (mystery religion) and are unrighteous (not saved) and perish because of this. They don’t want anything to do with the truth offered to them by Christ’s salvation. They deny Christ and his offer of salvation. They don’t love the truth (Christ) and the whole idea of needing salvation. They don’t want to be saved and don’t like the idea of having to be saved. They have pleasure (joy) in following their own false religions, practices and hedonistic joys and are damned because they forcefully and willingly reject Christ. As such, God will send them a ‘strong delusion’ (fallen angels in the deluded guise or form of ‘aliens’). There is nothing new under the sun. Fallen angels existed before the creation of mankind, and have worked for Satan, ever since his fall, into deceiving men over the course of many ancient civilizations (on into this current epoch.) God sent Christ to save mankind. Men reject Christ. God sends fallen angels to damn men. Men accept fallen angels (aliens). Men die. Simple. It is not a great mystery, as some would believe or think impossible.
The ‘sons of God’ (Watchers) are those ‘holy’ angels who had become ‘fallen’ angels, after rebelling with Lucifer/Satan against God. The physically giant hybrid offspring of fallen angels and women are known as Nephilim. This unholy union resulted in a gross corruption of human genetics. Think ‘Goliath’ in the story of David and Goliath. After the flood, this occurred again and there are many scriptures relating to where God instructed the Israelites to kill Nephilim offspring. By corrupting human flesh, Satan was trying to destroy and defile the genetic line that would ultimately bring Christ.
Genesis 6 King James Version (KJV)
6 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
50,000,000 Fallen / Evil Angels under Satan’s Authority:
- … “And his tail drew a third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour he child as soon as it was born.” (Rev. 12:4). (Emphasis added).
- … “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Rev. 12:7-9). (Emphasis added).
Commentary: Five (5) x 10 (ten) = (evil number of Satan) X (allness or physical completeness on earth). = 5 x 10m = 50,000,000. The double emphasis in the two verses solidly confirms the fact that Satan is kicked out of heaven along with his evil angelic cohorts. Interestingly, all these evil angels are no longer given access to the heavens, along with Satan. Instead of being allowed to reside in heaven, they are ‘kicked to the curb,’ otherwise known as the earth and have to reside here, until their lake of fire judgement.
Rev. 12:7 indicates that “Michael and his holy angels” fought “Satan and his evil angels“. Satan did not prevail because Michaels forces far surpassed those of Satan’s, by a 2:1 ratio.
Here’s the math on the number of angels (Rev. 5:10); ten thousand (10,000) times (x) ten thousand (10,000) = one hundred million (100,000,000) plus (+) thousands (1,000) times thousands (1,000). 1,000 x 1,000 = 1 million (1,000,000). Thus, we arrive at 101,000,000 (100,000,000 + 1,000,000). The description of this number by John, indicates that he “beheld and heard” this number. Rev. 7:11 indicates that this number is “all of the angels”, not some … not a few … not a group of special angels or some subset of the angelic realm, but … ALL angels. I interpret this litrally means 101,000,000 million angels surrounding the throne. The throne room of God is big enough to accommodate this many angels, creatures and the immeasurable multitudes of redeemed souls. The scene John describes is the largest spiritual gathering of God’s creation in history, either side of heaven.
An interesting side note of mathematics, for contemplation or consideration. Rev. 12:4 indicates that a third (1/3 or 33% or .33) of the angels of heaven rebelled against God and were thrown out of heaven, along with the ringleader or instigator of their coup … Satan. If we know 101,000,000 ‘good or holy’ angels are still in heaven worshipping God, then they must (mathematically speaking) be roughly equivalent to two thirds (2/3 or 66% or .66) of the total number of angels created by God. So, what is the original number of angels created by God, before the Satanic/Angelic rebellion? Answer: 151,000,000.
151,000,000 x .6666666 (decimal equivalent to the number of holy angels) = 100,666,656 or 101,000,000 holy angels (rounded).
151,000,000 x .3333333 (decimal equivalent to the number of fallen angels) = 49,999,995 or 50,000,000 rebellious angels (rounded).
For the mathematically inclined, please notice that I calculated these total numbers using seven digit spaces to the right of the decimal point. We know that, mathematically speaking, the number seven (7) indicates divinely determined completeness as to God’s purpose or plan. Using a multiplier seven digits to the right of the decimal point, gets as close as we can to being able to understand the completeness of God’s decision to create the number of ‘good, holy’ angels stated in Rev. 5:11. All of my calculations are based upon my very literal interpretation of the number of angels indicated in Rev. 5:11.
For mathematical nit-pickers, numbers these large are usually rounded the nearest million. Even if the original number of total angels was much greater or significantly higher… say 100 billion, or 100 trillion, the percentages (%) of holy and fallen angels stay the same. In any case, the number of ‘good guys’ outnumber the ‘bad guys’ by an easily to understand ratio of 2:1! Two good, holy angels for every one bad, rebellious angel. Why would God only create 151 million angels, or more? Everything in creation is finite in nature (no matter how it is measured). This is true, no matter how big the number of something seems to be to us. Our view of size or greatness of number, is a matter of perspective. We are finite creatures and have a finite perspective. The only thing infinite is God. God does not create anything greater than himself, thus, everything has to be limited or finite in which he creates. This is true considering the number of created angels. I believe the number of created angels to be a fixed number, as we are given no indication that angels procreate in heaven. While mankind is based on earth and has mortal bodies, we have to procreate to replace each generation of man that dies off. Not so with angelic beings. Once we receive our glorified bodies at the rapture/harpazo and see Jesus as he is, our bodies will have become eternal and will never die or breakdown, hence, there will be no need for us to procreate in heaven. ALL angels were created with an eternal existance, even the ‘fallen’ angels who were once Holy and are now ‘evil’ will have an eternal existance in the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, along with Satan, the False Prophet, the Beast and along with all evil, unsaved humanity from the ages (second death eternal).

English speakers have forged the term “godsend” to use in situations whenever someone receives a sudden, unexpected blessing or gift at just the right time. While having mostly a positive connotation, it’s not usually spoken of in a negative sense…that is until one considers 2 Thessalonians 2:11:
For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false” (HCSB).
Now here’s an interesting turn of phrase—God sends a strong delusion to those who are perishing in order to believe what is false. Yes, many who are left behind after our departure (2 Thess. 2:1, 3) will welcome the coming lawless one as heaven-sent…a true godsend.
Piggybacking off of Gary’s post last month and many others who have focused their efforts on exposing the alien (extra-terrestrial) deception and UFO phenomenon, I will add my two cents and incorporate some passages of Scripture that, hopefully, will shed further light on this pertinent end-times topic.
Intergalactic vs. Interdimensional War
As many alert, perceptive believers have noticed, the prince and ruler of this world (Jn. 14:30; Eph. 2:2) has bombarded the masses with extra-terrestrial ideas and movie plot lines driven by the usual premise—the earth is in grave danger from either an inside or outside threat; alien saviors arrive just in time to help mankind; sometimes they are good…sometimes bad. On and on it goes, through film, books, television, and, especially, video games. My goodness, the video games. Do you know what you’re children are watching/playing/absorbing and then adopting into their worldview?
Even the New York Times has decided that the exponential rise of UFO sightings is “news that’s fit to print” (see here). Almost daily I spot a headline where NASA has found new planets that have potential for intelligent life. And wouldn’t you know it, in a year where many of us are expecting the Lord to do the unexpected in 2017, Ridley Scott is at it again this month with Alien: Covenant. How odd…how fitting a title given what many of us expect coming soon in the form of a deceptive covenant of peace between Israel and the nations.
Much of the world is primed now to welcome extra-terrestrial saviors. In the aftermath of the resurrection/rapture of the body of Christ, the spiritual vacuum created will open the door for desperate people to make desperate attempts at peace and security. One of the trailblazers in exposing the alien deception and sounding the alarm has been L.A. Marzulli. If you have been following him, you might have heard him say once or twice, “When we go up, they show up. When we go up, they come down” (see here). I think he’s spot on.
Before the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ to the world, there will be another unveiling…a disclosure of another sort. Contrary to the lies and anti-biblical agendas being promoted by academia, mass media, and a number of alien enthusiasts, these beings that show up to save the day will not be extra-terrestrials from another galaxy; they are inter-dimensional beings—rebellious angels who are going to be kicked out of heaven and thrown down to earth…
Revelation 12 Sets the Stage
We go up. They come down. Here at Unsealed we have written numerous articles concerning this amazing chapter in the book of Revelation. This chapter really sets the stage for the end-times and reveals all the major players, including the body of Christ being “birthed” and raptured up to the Father’s house (Rev. 12:5). However, a word of caution: In regard to the timing of events—even the literal signs in the sky—we need to acknowledge the overlapping style of John’s visions and not try to strain out a gnat when we read the chapter, verse-by-verse.
For example, Revelation 12:5 comes immediately before 12:6, and verse 6 is immediately before verses 7 through 12. The timing of these events is not strictly sequential in order. There appears to be overlap between the catching up of the male-child in 12:5 and the outbreak of war in heaven in 12:7-12 (another layer/overlap occurs with 12:6 and 12:13-17). Israel’s hideout in the wilderness, we know from other passages of Scripture, occurs during the middle-to-latter half of the Tribulation. According to Isa. 66:7-8, we know that the timing of our departure comes before Israel’s labor pains (see Gary’s post). So, don’t be discouraged, for instance, if you haven’t hammered out all the details regarding the sign of the dragon (Rev. 12:3-4); the uncertainty surrounding this particular sign should take nothing away from the immense significance of the great sign appearing on September 23, 2017!
Ok. Now then, I got to get back on track. We go up, they come down. According to the overlap mentioned above in 12:5 and 12:7-12, our departure and arrival to God’s throne appears to coincide with the expulsion of Satan and his entourage of rogue angels. In a few words, “…there was no place for them in heaven any longer” (Rev. 12:8).
Hmmm…what could possibly tip the scales this time around, when Michael and his angels are able to fight and prevail over Satan and his angels? Could it be the presence of the newly glorified Church, an army of believers who had just been resurrected, transformed, and transferred to heaven? I think so. Consider also the conspicuous absence of the accuser in the throne room scene in chapters 4 and 5 of Revelation, whereas in visions past, the adversary is an ever-present antagonist in God’s heavenly court (Job 1:6-12; Zech. 3:1-4).
Let’s look at a few other Old Testament passages that reveal the true identity of these fallen “alien saviors” who will deceive earth-dwellers after the Rapture.
O’ How the Mighty Have Fallen!
First, we’ll start with Psalm 82, and while we’re at it, I’ll also plug Dr. Michael Heiser’s book The Unseen Realm. He has done a great service to the body of Christ by writing this book. For one, unlike most pastors and scholars, he doesn’t break out in hives and run for the hills when asked about Genesis 6:1-4. Coming from the academic arena, he has opened the door for many other Christians who were once skeptical of the so-called “fringe groups” within the Church. You know, those who keep yammering on about Nephilim, Watchers, and the book of Enoch.
If you aren’t going to get his book, then please just read the first couple of chapters (here). He shares a personal testimony of having his eyes opened and world rocked upon reading Psalm 82:1 one day before church. Consequently, he discovered that any interpretation that denies that God [Hebrew, elohim] is holding court and judging among “the gods” [Hebrew, elohim] suppresses the truth and strips the passage of its supernatural, heavenly context.
Sure, Psalm 82 is uncomfortable for those who rigidly hold to an anti-supernatural bias, or perhaps they don’t want to be accused of teaching polytheism. But as Heiser indicates throughout his book, we shouldn’t be protected from our Bibles, explaining away difficult passages in favor of those that fit into our tidy theological systems. As good students of the Word, we need to let the Bible be the Bible and seek to understand the Scriptures in its original and cultural context.
Ok. If you are on board with Psalm 82 describing a scene in heaven, where our Triune God is issuing judgment on “gods,” or heavenly beings also called elohim, then I want to focus on verses 6 and 7. Concerning these two verses, Heiser writes:
A quick read of Psalm 82 informs us that God has called this council meeting to judge the elohim for corrupt rule of the nations. Verse 6 of the psalm declares that these elohim are sons of God. God says to them: I have said, ‘You are gods [elohim], and sons of the Most High [beney elyon], all of you” (pg. 27).
Corrupt rule of the nations? Where is this idea coming from? Check out Deuteronomy 32:8-9, especially the ESV or NET versions (also the LXX). I’m sorry to burst any bubbles here, but other English translations get this one flat-out wrong. Verse 8 should read that God set the boundaries of the nations [after dividing them at Babel] according to “the number of the sons of God,” or in the Greek, “the angels of God,” not any human rulers like “the sons of Israel.”
On page 322 in The Unseen Realm, Heiser comments further on the LORD’s rationale for judging the sons of God placed over the nations in Psalm 82:
Though originally given their dominions by Yahweh, the lesser elohim had governed corruptly and had not maintained loyalty to the Most High. Instead, they embraced the worship that should have gone only to Yahweh (Deut. 17:3; 29:25).”
And now with this insight, read Psalm 82:7 carefully:
Nevertheless, you will die like men and fall like any one of the princes” (NASB).
Whoa! That’s right. These mighty sons of God who currently rule over the nations—the very same powers and principalities that the apostle Paul speaks of in Ephesians 6—will die…like men (Hebrew text reads literally, “…you will die like Adam”). I believe that Revelation 12:7-12 captures the moment when the LORD makes good on His decree and these wicked sons of God are cast down out of heaven, just after we have been raised up and elevated as newly-adopted and glorified sons of God (c.f. Rom. 8:19; 1 Cor. 6:2-3; Gal. 4:5-7). Hallelujah, amen!
* I noticed an interesting pattern between Psalms 81, 82, and 83. All three are grouped into Book III within the Psalter and seem to have a strong connection to one another—especially in regard to the prophetic timeline of events at the start of the Tribulation. Psalm 81 is our quintessential “Feast of Trumpets” psalm (Ps. 81:3); the trumpet is blown on the new moon and we are taken up and hidden on that day (c.f. Rev. 12:5). Psalm 82, as previously discussed, corresponds to what occurs after the Rapture and involves the fall of the “gods” down to earth (Rev. 12:7-12). Psalm 83, as many of you know, relates to the invasion of Israel by her surrounding Arab neighbors once the dragon has been released upon the earth to go after the woman (Rev. 12:6; 13-17). Cool, huh?
Falling Stars From Heaven and a Prison Break from The Bottomless Pit
In the past I wrote about the “star language” of the Bible, which usually refers to heavenly beings, especially in the book of Revelation (see post entitled The Real Star Wars). Again, the Scriptures are clear that these beings that fall to earth during the Day of the LORD are malevolent deceivers who masquerade as angels of light and desire the worship that is solely reserved for Yahweh alone (c.f. 2 Cor. 11:14-15; Rev. 19:10).
Our next OT passage related to the fall of Satan and his ruling angels comes from Isaiah 24:21-23. Here’s the text in its entirety with some highlights and bracketed explanatory notes for emphasis:
On that day [Jacob’s trouble/Tribulation] the LORD will punish the host of heaven above and kings of the earth below. They will be gathered together like prisoners in a pit. They will be confined to a dungeon; after many days
[at the end of the Millennial Reign – Rev. 20:7-10]
they will be punished. The moon will be put to shame and the sun disgraced [heavenly bodies are shaken – Matt. 24:29], because the LORD of Hosts will reign as king on Mount Zion in Jerusalem [Millennial Reign – Rev. 20:1-6], and He will display His glory in the presence of His elders [you and me included! – Rev. 2:26-27; 4:4, 10]” (HCSB).
Another treasure trove in the book of Isaiah! How awesome is the LORD, our God, who even makes the literal moon in the sky blush with shame [lunar eclipses] and the sun go dark [solar eclipse] before the great and terrible day of His wrath (c.f. Joel 2:30-31; Rev. 12:1-2).
Alien saviors from another planet in the cosmos? No, not at all. May those who are left on earth to witness the coming disclosure look to the Scriptures for guidance. Yahweh has mercifully exposed the identity of these rebellious angels—and as we see in Isaiah, He has given advanced warning.
It’s also interesting to note that once “the hosts of heaven” are judged and thrown down to earth, they are gathered together along with “the kings of the earth.” The world stage during the Tribulation then becomes a fishbowl of God’s wrath as the fallen angels are stripped of their immortality and kicked out of the heavenly realm to join the rebellious sons of Adam below. I believe these fallen angels will definitely retain some of their strength and power after their fall to earth, but it will gradually fade and diminish, possibly on into the Millennium when they are bound and imprisoned (think diminishing strength and lifespan of Adam’s subsequent children post-Fall).
*Any Marvel Comics superheroes coming to mind as you ponder what this will look like to the unsuspecting inhabitants of earth after the fall of these sons of God?
Not only will there be powerful and terrifying creatures falling from heaven above, there will also be even more frightening sights coming up from below—seriously hellish, angelic monsters will be released from the deepest, darkest parts of the underworld to wreak havoc on the surface of the earth.
On this matter I will suggest several Scripture passages for comparison and study: Gen. 6:1-4; Joel 2:1-11; 2 Pet. 2:4-5; Jd. 6; and Rev. 9:1-11. Let’s see if I can trace and connect the dots here, starting with Joel 2:
—The supernatural army described in Joel 2:1-11 are not human agents of divine wrath; they’re not even benevolent angels, either. Contrary to the claim that Joel’s army is a form of the Church militant (see here), this band of destroyers who appear at the onset of the Day of the LORD are also mentioned in Revelation 9:1-11. Notice the immediate context of the book of Joel—a literal locust plague has devastated the land of Israel (Jl. 1:4) and the prophet also sees a day when “locusts” of another kind terrorize the inhabitants of the earth.
—Compare Jl. 2:4-5 with Rev. 9:3, 7-9 (see the connection?). In Revelation we are given more detail concerning the origin of this ghastly, overpowering army (Rev. 9:1-3).
—Both Peter and Jude confirm their identity and origin:
And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day…” (Jd. 6, NKJV).
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but held them captive in Tartarus with chains of darkness and handed them over to be kept for judgment…” (2 Pet. 2:4, LEB).
—”Tartarus” is an adopted term from Greek-thought concerning the lowest place one could go—even further below hades [or, “hell,” in KJV vernacular]. Brothers and sisters, if you consider hell to be a real place (and you should, because Jesus did too – Matt. 5:29; 10:28; Lk. 16:22-23), then you should also consider Tartarus, or the abyss [Greek, abussos], to be just as real a locale (the demons that Jesus’ encountered considered it a real place too – Lk. 8:31).
—Finally, the brief yet profoundly important passage of Gen. 6:1-4 explains the origin of these imprisoned spirits who will be released during the Tribulation. The same “angels who sinned and did not keep their proper domain” are the same “sons of God” who took “the daughters of men” and begat gigantic offspring [Nephilim] with them (Gen. 6:2, 4).
A Hollywood Ending
All right. Now here’s the kicker: What if we haven’t been reading books like Daniel and Revelation in the proper light? What if those of us who care about bible prophecy have been expecting a mere human ruler to step onto the scene as an Antichrist candidate, when he may not be entirely human?
I’m still wrestling with this, so I offer this as final food for thought. I’ve been re-thinking Daniel 9:24-27, especially in regard to the two contrasting “princes” mentioned in the prophecy. I think it’s time for a fresh look at familiar territory for those of us who have been at this a while.
Considering the context of the book as a whole, what if “prince to come” in Dan. 9:26 is a supernatural being, or some sort of hybrid creature? Is it so far-fetched given what we know about Christ, “the prince” (Dan. 9:25), who has supernatural beginnings? Compare these “princes” with Michael, “a chief prince,” who fights against “the prince of the kingdom of Persia” as well as the other supernatural “kings” mentioned in Dan. 10:13. Heck, while we’re at it, maybe we should revisit “Gog” of Ezekiel 38-39 fame—he’s also a “chief prince” just like Michael (c.f. Ezek. 38:1-2; Dan. 12:1; Rev. 12:7-12).
Also, consider that the apostle John never uses the term “antichrist” in Revelation; instead, he identifies Paul’s “man of lawlessness” (2 Thess. 2:3) as “the beast that rises from the bottomless pit” [Greek, abussos] — the Abyss! (see Rev. 9:11; 11:7; 17:8). I find it intriguing that “the beast” of the Tribulation period is given a short reign with ten other kings (Rev. 17:12)…could these also be fallen sons of God who are jockeying for power among the human race? After all, even though they have been kicked out of heaven and exposed for all mankind to see (c.f. Isa. 14:16-21), they aren’t going to give up without a fight and will continue to use any means necessary to deceive and enslave humanity (I’m looking at you, harlot religions of the world – Rev. 17:1-6, 16-17).
*Another link in the chain: In 2 Thessalonians 2:8 the apostle Paul refers to the prince of Daniel 9:26 as “the lawless one.” He may be borrowing language from the writer of 1 Enoch and, therefore, hinting at his supernatural identity. See 1 Enoch 7:6 where the Nephilim are called “the lawless ones.”
We know the fallen have been working behind the scenes, especially in regard to the alien/extra-terrestrial deception. During the Tribulation they will pick up where they left off and use false signs, miracles, and wonders (2 Thess. 2:9-10; Rev. 13:13-14) as a means to enslave (hence, the holy angel’s warning to John in Rev. 19:10). When the “alien saviors” arrive, mankind will be seduced into creature-worship once again, just as Paul stated in Romans 1:25:
For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” (NASB).
The earth had better get ready for a real-life, Hollywood blockbuster. It’s all coming to a world theater near you…
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
‘UNCLEAN SPIRITS’ are the spirits of the dead, GENETICALLY UNCLEAN HYBRID NEPHILIM, created by the unholy impregnation of human women by FALLEN ANGELS (NOT ‘ALIENS’) Fallen angels are NOT unclean spirits. UNCLEAN refers to the genetically corrupted or defiled NEPHILIM, ‘as in the days of Noah.’ (Human/Angel Genetic Hybrids).
