When Angels Appear

I write this article knowing in advance that many mockers and scoffers will have a field day making fun of what I’m about to write. Nevertheless, it is my hope and desire that some will get serious and realize that Jesus is alive and that angels are real. The heart of this article is that the Lord Jesus Christ is returning soon, and those who know and love him long for that day. We also weep for those who repeatedly ridicule or reject him and his offer of forgiveness from sin. The only other beings who know that Jesus is returning are Satan and his vile army of fallen angels, who control all the nations and their political-religious systems. They tremble in terror at that truth. They hate Jesus. Did you hear me? Why then would any person want to deny and even hate Jesus, and follow Satan? It makes no sense at all once you look at it honestly, and admit that sin has a blinding power over people.

The apostle John said that during the reign of the Antichrist on the Earth, as God’s wrath is about to be poured out, that God’s angels would be seen and heard by all men on the Earth. This means then that Satan’s fallen angels will also be manifested for all to see and hear. Think about that for a moment. What will these public appearances of angels do to the mindset of all nations of the Earth? How will this affect the politics and religion of the world?

In Revelation 8:13-9:1, John writes…..”And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound. And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth; and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.”

You can bet that CNN and MSNBC will be there with their cameras. The whole world will be frozen in place as they watch and hear these great beings from God. Notice carefully, that when the fifth angel appears and sounds, that a great star will fall to the earth in the sight of men. The camera crews and commentators will rush to the scene of the landing sight. What will they find when they get there? Are they expecting a crash site of a UFO or a crater caused by a meteor that has impacted the Earth? John clearly says that the star is someone, not something. The star is one of God’s angels sent by Jesus to release the fallen angels bound in Hell, for he alone has the keys and authority, Revelation 1:18, 20:1. The cameramen will arrive and find a great fiery smoke ascending from the landing site, with hideous, mutated looking creatures coming out of the ground. What will be the explanation of the risen American Antichrist, who had earlier declared himself to be the Messiah? How will he explain these supernatural creatures coming out of the landing site to the fearful masses, who are now glued to their television sets, waiting for the answer?

We must remember that at this point in time, four of God’s mighty angels have already appeared, sounded and brought great destruction and havoc upon the Earth during the past two years. How has the Antichrist explained this to the people? Keep in mind that Satan is possessing the Antichrist, and knows all too well that it is the God of Abraham in Heaven, that is pouring out his wrath on ungodly men and all nations. It is his lying nature to tell men that he is God and that the true God is Satan. So, true to form, he will have told the terrified multitudes, through the Antichrist, that Satan is causing this great destruction. The Antichrist will have convinced most people that the first four angelic beings were evil fallen angels and aliens that are seeking to conquer the Earth. He will be helped by the familiar spirit angel that calls himself “Mary”, who will appear also and command all to follow her son, the Messiah, and the Pope in their war against Satan. All the inhabiters of the Earth will know that indeed…..”someone is out there.”

Truthfully, these hideous creatures coming out of the landing site are part of Satan’s vile, angelic army that have taken on fleshly form. John numbers the army that has been amassed at two hundred million, Revelation 9:16. That is a great number, but it is unclear how large these creatures are. These are the worst of the fallen angels who according to the apostle Peter were imprisoned for cohabiting with the daughters of men, Genesis 6:4. They have been released to destroy and torment the inhabitants of the Earth. The Antichrist will declare these creatures to be an alien force, some who have already been planted in the Earth prior to the falling star. This army will be reinforced by the fallen angels that Michael and his angels defeated in a war of the heavens, and cast to the Earth, Revelation 12:7-9. All of God’s former angels who followed Satan in his rebellion against the Lord are all together again to do battle against the Lord.

Satan and his army of evil ones have two goals. It is essential that we understand what they are. First, he wants to hurt and kill as many people as he can. He hates all of mankind as much as he hates God. John says that for five months his army causes great pain, as the sting of a scorpion, upon those who have not received the Lord Jesus Christ. This pain is so great they desire to die, but mysteriously they can’t. Then Satan’s extraterrestrial armies will kill men for the remaining thirteen months of Daniel’s 70th Week of 2520 days. John records that one-third of the Earth’s population will be killed by these monsters.

The second goal of Satan is to deceive the world’s people about the second coming of Jesus Christ. He knows that Jesus is returning. He knows that the peace covenant bringing peace and the Temple to Israel was Day One of the 70th Week. He can count down the 2520 days also. The day that no one knows, as it relates to the return of Jesus, is when he will return prior to the 70th Week, to remove his followers that have overcome sin through his bloody cross. Anyway, he will convince the frightened masses, through the false Messiah, that an alien, extraterrestrial force has landed to begin the battle for planet Earth. He will explain that many have secretly been underground waiting and preparing for the invasion to begin. He will say that the main attack force is soon to arrive at Jerusalem. Believing this lie, the kings of the Earth, led by the United States, will stay united and gather their military might to make war, Revelation 16:13-14, 17:14, 19:19.

It appears to me, that part of Satan’s strategy or tactics of war will include allowing America’s military machine, with all of its smart weapons, to have victories over the extraterrestrial forces, who are under his control anyway. This will give men hope that they can overcome the larger invading force that is to come. This is why the armies of the Earth will confidently assemble under the American Antichrist in Israel. They really think they can save the planet! By now, all of these fighting men will have taken the Mark of the Antichrist, as have multitudes on the Earth, swearing their love and patriotism for their great leader.

Do you or your family want to end up at Jerusalem fighting against the returning Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, thinking you’re stopping aliens from conquering the Earth? My friends this is not a Hollywood movie, nor the X-Files. This is going to happen! Jesus shed His blood for all of us so that we could be saved from the coming wrath of God upon the ungodly unrepentant inhabitants of the Earth. He loves us all so much and takes no pleasure in sending men to Hell. Remember, the words Jesus said seven times through John the Apostle…….”He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit sayeth unto the churches,” Revelation 2&3. I beg all of you who read this to be overcomers in Jesus Christ. He will give you freely his power to overcome sin and the wiles of the devil. He will give you a longing to be with him, to see him face to face. He is the coming, victorious King of Kings.
