Angels at Work
– Greg Laurie Devotion – August 7/8, 2021
All around us there’s a supernatural world, an invisible world. And around us right now are thousands of mysterious created beings called angels. Most of them are holy. (And I’m sorry to say that some of them are not. Some are fallen angels.)
The Bible mentions angels in both the Old and the New Testament. In fact, it contains nearly 300 mentions of them.
However, angels work undercover, a little like the Navy SEALs. They don’t draw attention to themselves; they just get the job done. And they’re not around so we can have extended conversations with them. They’re very interesting creatures who work behind the scenes.
We can find a number of instances in the Bible where angels intervened. For example, the book of Acts tells us that an angel spoke to Philip and directed him to go to the desert. Philip went, and God used him to help a man from Ethiopia come to faith.
In Acts, we have the story of Peter, who was taken to prison. King Herod already had put James to death, so the church prayed, and God sent an angel at night to wake up Peter and lead him out of the jail.
Angels have a specific ministry in the lives of Christians. God dispatches them from Heaven to assist us, to encourage us, to minister to us, and to even protect us. Hebrews 1:14 says of them, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” (NKJV)
So, you can be confident of this: you have angels actively involved in your life.
Sometimes, we don’t realize this is a spiritual world, and we get caught up in other things and forget that we’re children of the Most High. Our kingdom is in Heaven. And we’re ambassadors of the kingdom of God.

Twenty-four Roles of Holy Angels in the Prophetic Book of Revelation:
- Warn man.
- Administer wrath.
- Instruct other angels.
- Blow trumpets.
- Pour vials.
- Worship God/Jesus.
- Witness/testimony to Christ.
- Signify prophecy.
- Refuse to be worshipped.
- Battle Satan and fallen angels.
- Loosen fallen angels from imprisonment.
- Chain Satan in bottomless pit.
- Throw Antichrist, False Prophet into lake of fire
- Command nature, birds, fire, water, weather, winds.
- Give offerings to God (prayers of saints).
- Given a key to open the bottomless pit.
- Fellow servant.
- Command John.
- Proclaim the Gospel.
- Command demonic creatures.
Commentary: In most cases, it is clear that an appointed angel is making the statement or proclamation. This is one of the roles or duties (among many) of selected angels throughout the Bible. Why would angels be making statements or proclamations? They are instructed and authorized to do so. They proclaim Christ’s rulership and reign on earth. They proclaim blessings on those martyred during the combined Tribulation period. They identify attributes of the Lord God Almighty. They proclaim the righteousness of his judgements. They issue a command and warning to people in Babylon. They instruct all men to praise God. They proclaim that God loves his people and wants to be with them and dwell with them. In the most simplest of words, they communicate directly with mankind, on behalf of the Triune God. Interestingly, some Holy angels seem to have a role of interceding with fallen angels, to fulfill the will of God. Michael and his angels war against Satan and his angels. A Holy angel grabs and chains Satan in the bottomless pit. An angel lets loose the four fallen angels at the Euphrates River. Christ gives one of his angels the key to the bottomless pit in order to let loose the demonic locusts. Holy angels throw the antichrist and false prophet into the lake of fire.
Some Holy angels have a role of interceding in nature, on behalf of God. They have some degree of control over the weather, water, fire, winds, animal kingdom, sun, moon and earth. With the exception of Christ opening the first seven (7) book seals, Holy angels are directly involved in administering God’s will through the seven (7) trumpet and seven (7) vial plagues wich affect the earth and nature. For the diligent Bible students among you, notice that the Holy angels most prominent role is to declare/pronounce or to proclaim, in addition to providing prophecy. These two angelic functions are mentioned more times throughout the book of Revelation, than any other angelic function. This is not to say that these functions are more important than other functions. Most (if not all) Holy angels seem to have one (or several) roles or job functions in the administration of God’s creation. However, in the context of the book of Revelation being mostly prophetic, it makes logical sense that most angelic involvement would be communicative and prophetic in nature. It is believed that a class of holy angels have a specific role of being messengers or communicators with mankind, when it is the will the God for them to do so. Discerning students will also notice that angels also share in the worship of Christ (The Lamb) and of God. Holy angels are very busy creations functioning on earth and in heaven, and most people think that angels just sit on clouds playing harps.
Lastly, it is interesting to note that John, the Apostle, one of Christ’s key Apostle’s was twice inclined to worship a Holy angel who was communicating with him. The Holy angel sternly told John not to worship him, but to instead worship God. If one of the holiest, most obedient of Christ’s servants was inclined to worship a Holy angel, what would this suggest about evil men (who have no restraint) living during the Tribulation period worshipping evil, fallen angels who are satanically motivated deceive them? Could these fallen angels have a part to play in the “Great Deception” that God allows to occur on earth during the Tribulation and Great Tribulation?
The Coming ‘Strong Delusion’. Same ‘Lie or Delusions’ for 6,000 (6) years and during EVERY EPOCH, including the coming seven (7) year tribulation. ‘Because they love not the truth or the world of God, God will send among them a ‘strong or great delusion’ so they can be damned.’
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 2:8-12 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.
(Note: the ‘sons of God’ 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 [fallen angels / ‘watches’] saw the daughters of men that they were fair [sexually attractive]; and they took [kidnapped, raped] them wives [women] of all [more than one] which they chose [abducted]. (Emphasis, translation added, mine.)
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 [Nephilim, evil seed offspring] children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (Emphasis, translation added, mine.)
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 (5) 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. Both holy and fallen angels were created with an eternal existance.
‘UNCLEAN SPIRITS’ are the spirits of the dead, GENETICALLY UNCLEAN HYBRID NEPHILIM, created by the unholy impregnation of human women by FALLEN ANGELS. Fallen angels are NOT unclean spirits. UNCLEAN refers to the genetically corrupted or defiled, ‘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.
Genetic Defilement or Corruption (‘in the days before Noah’)
Genesis 6:6 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.
Genetic Defilement or Corruption (‘as in the days of Noah)
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Genesis 6:9, 11, 12 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
Genesis 7:1-4 And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
Genetic Defilement or Corruption (‘in the days after Noah’)
Satan is trying to increasingly thwart the genetic lineage of humans with the arrival of the Savior, Chosen One, He who would bruise or defeat Satan, Jesus Christ, the Lamb. This is Satan’s plan or strategy to try to prove that God is a liar and ‘not in control.’ Fallen Angels or ‘Watchers’ AGAIN creating bastardized, hybridized, half human / half angelic Nephilim. Nephilim is a ‘generic’ name relating to ALL the various types and clans of evil hybrid humans, dependent upon the class or ranking or ‘type’ of fallen angel who ‘raped’ a human woman. This ALL occurred again, AFTER the flood. Satan was desperate to ‘pollute, corrupt or defile’ ALL flesh upon the earth to thwart the arrival of Jesus Christ through a genetic, human blood line or ‘lineage’ of humans. Satan, the dragon, did NOT know that Christ would ultimately come through the lineage of Abraham, Isaac, David, Jacob or Israel. God uses Israel to destroy the clans and tribes of Nephilim, during the second fallen angel incursion. (FIVE (5) Anakims, Moabites, Emims, Horims and Amorites. Types, clans or tribes of Nephilim. Genetically defiled, corrupted or bastardized hybrid human/angelic creatures.)
Genesis 6:4 There were giants (Nephilim) in the earth in those days [days of Noah – before the flood]; and also after that [after the flood], 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.
Numbers 13:32-33 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. (Nephilim ‘clans or tribes’) And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. (Anak = Anakim, Nephilim children of Nephilim called or known as Anak.)
Deuteronomy 1:28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.
Deuteronomy 2:9-12 9 And the Lord said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land for a possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a possession. 10 The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; 11 Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites called them Emims. 12 The Horims also dwelt in Seir before time; but the children of Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel did unto the land of his possession, which the Lord gave unto them. (FIVE (5) Anakims, Moabites, Emims, Horims and Amorites. Types, clans or tribes of Nephilim. Genetically defiled, corrupted or bastardized hybrid human/angelic creatures. The ‘result’ of Satan coercing five (5) groupings or types or rankings of angels to rebel against God and rape women on earth. ‘They raped whatever women they chose.’)
Deuteronomy 3:1-11 Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edre. 2 And the Lord said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon. 3 So the Lord our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining. 4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many. (Nephilim ‘technology.’) 6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city. 7 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves. 8 And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites the land that was on this side Jordan, from the river of Arnon unto mount Hermon; 9 (Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir;) 10 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the ‘remnant of giants’; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man. (9 ‘cubits’ is about 14 or 15 (5+5+5) feet)
Deuteronomy 9:1-2 Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven, 2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak! Amos 2:9 9 Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.
2 Samuel 21:1-2, 15-22 (David of Israel, slaying the four (4) giant(s) of Gath, including Goliath)
Joshua 15:8 And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the border went up to the top of the mountain that liethbefore the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the valley of the giants northward:
Joshua 17:15 15 And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.
Produced by J.J. Abrams, the new Showtime docuseries ‘UFO’ explores the mounting evidence that we are not alone in the universe. Even ‘Hollywood’ is becoming more fascinated with ‘STRONG DELUSIONS!’ More UPDATED DISCERNMENT!
Published Aug. 08, 2021 4:55AM ET The Daily Beast.
I wish I could say that UFO definitively proves that aliens are among us, but at least Showtime’s new four-part docuseries (produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot) does contend that it’s a possibility, given that we now have solid evidence of unidentified flying objects’ existence. Using as its foundation The New York Times’ 2017 article, “Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program,” this intriguing investigation into flying saucers and the possible ‘extraterrestrials’ [fallen angels, sons of God, the ‘watchers’] manning their controls is an attempt at legitimizing a field of study that’s long been ridiculed by the public at large, as well as mythologized by The X-Files, Hollywood blockbusters, and the innumerable conspiracy theorists that populate the web.
On the basis of its first two episodes (which were all that was available at the time of this review), UFO is only partly successful in that endeavor.
Premiering Aug. 8, this tantalizing non-fiction effort employs a familiar docuseries format, melding interviews with journalists and “experts,” archival photos, video clips, graphical diagrams, CGI recreations, TV news stories, newspaper headlines and declassified document text [and no biblical reference or relevance?]. In doing so, the series aims to portray its subject as no different than any other historical event or true-crime inquiry—a tack that’s most convincing when it sticks to the aforementioned New York Times exposé, which revealed to the public that the government does acknowledge that there have been genuine UFO sightings and that it’s looked into these events in the hopes of discovering the nature, origin, and purpose of the entities in question.
Psalm 78:49-50. He [God, Yahweh, Jehovah, ‘I Am’, Ancient of Days] 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.
Written by Helene Cooper, Ralph Blumenthal and Leslie Kean, that bombshell report explained that, between 2007 and 2012 (five ‘5’ years), thanks in large part to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and billionaire Robert Bigelow, the U.S. government covertly spent $22 million on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), an operation whose sole purpose was to study UFOs. For the legions of Americans who believe in such things—whether because they’ve witnessed inexplicable crafts themselves, or simply find UFO claims credible—the article was validation of the highest order, coming straight from the “paper of record.” Keane and Blumenthal both participate in UFO, and their reasoned commentary about their own work, as well as the larger topic at hand, lends credence to the idea that the U.S. government is both aware of UFOs in our skies, and fascinated enough to expend considerable time and energy into figuring them out.
This new perspective on UFOs stems, in large part, from declassified government material, the most jaw-dropping of which is video from a 2004 encounter between Navy F/A-18F fighter jets off the Nimitz aircraft carrier (near the coast of San Diego) and a baffling tic tac-shaped white oval craft. Footage of that run-in makes clear that the object in question isn’t a weather phenomenon or test flare (two of the oldest and most popular official explanations for UFO sightings), and it’s hard to dismiss it as merely a fiction created by crackpot sci-fi enthusiasts. While UFO’s talking heads—including Las Vegas’ long-time UFO beat reporter George Knapp—confess that approximately 95 percent of reported UFOs can probably be explained in some rational fashion, it’s the other five (5) percent that are of considerable interest, and it’s easy to see this Air Force video as falling into the latter category.
Showtime’s series contextualizes AATIP as the latest in a long line of U.S government investigations into UFOs, which began in 1947 (Israel; 1948, God’s prophetic clock started ticking) and continued through the end of the 1960s via programs that included Project Blue Book. Unfortunately, UFO somewhat undercuts its persuasiveness by leaping backwards and forwards in time at random. There’s no discernible structure to each of its episodes, which provide a smorgasbord of history, current events, and old films of Americans narrating their close encounters to TV reporters. The effect of this jumbled format is to keep things beguiling and suspenseful at the expense of lucid, in-depth analysis. It makes one suspect that not everything presented here can hold up to intense scrutiny—or even a straightforward, point-by-point chronological rundown.
Still, there’s plenty to chew on in UFO, such as the “Phoenix Lights” incident of March 13, 1997, in which thousands of Arizonans saw—from approximately 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm, in different parts of the state—a geometric formation of lights hovering above the ground. Much speculation ensued, spurred by camcorder video of the event as well as by then-Governor Fife Symington, who admitted that he too had witnessed the lights, and who in a new interview describes what he saw as “otherworldly.” Symington’s eventual jokey press conference about the Phoenix Lights—replete with a colleague dressed in an alien costume—was consequently taken by many as an insult, and Phoenix City Councilwoman Frances Emma Barwood and her husband Michael Siavelis imply that Symington may have behaved in this manner due to government pressure (and in exchange for leniency regarding the fraud charges he was facing).
That notion invariably sounds like borderline-conspiratorial nonsense, and frustratingly, UFO doesn’t spend more time trying to authentically parse fact from fiction. Instead, it presents a collection of movies, photographs and conjecture in the hope that some of it will stick. That’s most notable during its second episode’s address of the Skinwalker Ranch, a Utah outpost notorious for its paranormal activity. Much is made about Bigelow’s interest in the property, and the series bolsters its spooky tales about the place through a chat with one of its former security guards. However, there’s no real effort put into verifying whether the place is “a haunted house with UFOs” (as Knapp describes it) or if it’s merely the sort of creepy rundown locale that people like to imagine is beset by the supernatural.
It’s too bad that UFO doesn’t expend greater energy striving to get to the bottom of its biggest mysteries, because much of its fresher evidence—aided by testimony from the likes of Kevin Day and Gary Voorhis, who were radar operators on the USS Princeton during the 2004 Nimitz sighting—is quite plausible. No matter where you fall along the UFO-believing spectrum, Showtime’s latest confirms that the truth is out there—even if it doesn’t completely know what it is just yet.
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.
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.
