Bible’s Explanation on UFOs

By: Ben Campbell | Last updated: Jul 08, 2024

Over the past decade, it seems that the US government has begun taking reports of unidentified flying objects seriously. The Pentagon refers to these sightings as unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs.

However, according to some experts in the field, it doesn’t appear to be a new-age phenomenon. There’s a wealth of evidence in ancient texts, including the Bible, that suggests people witnessed things they could not explain during that era. This historical context begs the question, have aliens visited Earth?

Pentagon Whistleblowers Speak on Aliens

Last year, three Pentagon whistle-blowers were making headlines around the world after testifying about the existence of alien craft in possession of the US government during a congressional hearing on UAPs.

They also alleged the Pentagon is hiding evidence of these craft, which appear to go beyond the known laws of physics.

David Grusch Claims US Has UAPs

One of the men testifying under oath was David Grusch, a former intelligence officer who shocked the world when he claimed the US government has “intact and partially intact” alien vehicles, some of which contained aliens, per Fox News.

Whereas two former Navy Pilots, Ryan Greaves and David Fravor, went on record claiming to have observed numerous UAPs during training flights. “The technology that we faced is far superior to anything that we had,” they said.

What to Make of the News

Americans were stunned by Grusch’s claims, but many found themselves nodding in agreement, including Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., who said at the time, “I believe there is something else out there, dadgumit. Whatever the truth may be, we’re done with the cover-up.” This shared reaction sparked a nationwide conversation.

The news led many to search for answers on their own, resulting in several unusual online stories that mention strange objects in the sky thousands of years ago.

Josephus Speaks of Strange Objects

The Roman-Jewish historian and military leader, Josephus, lived in the first century AD. In one of his works, he mentioned a mysterious object observed in the night sky in 70 AD.

“Chariots and troops of soldiers in their armor were seen running about among the clouds,” wrote Josephus.

Armed Battalions in the Sky

According to Josephus, similar events were occurring around the country, in what appeared to be “armed battalions hurtling through the clouds” and with “great noise” causing “quakes.”

Josephus’ account isn’t an isolated event, however. Several other writers in the centuries that followed appear to have made reference to ancient UAPs in distinct places around the world.

UFO Sightings Increase After WW2

Following the end of World War 2, the US experienced a significant surge in UFO sightings, leading to the creation of several top-secret task forces to investigate these anomalies. This period marked a significant increase in public awareness and interest in UFOs.

Could Aliens Be Angels and Demons From the Bible?

During a written piece for Fox News, Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis suggested the Bible holds the key to understanding aliens. He explained that the demons and angels mentioned in the text could actually be spiritual aliens.

Maginnis said, “I believe there is a very real spiritual domain beyond our senses. You can call them aliens, angels, demons, or others.”

Religions Embrace Spiritual Reality

The retired Maginnis suggested that while modern society rejects the notion of any kind of spiritual realm or reality from which aliens may come, he explains the religions of the ancient world supply ample evidence of this.

He wrote, “Jews and Christians will recall in 2 Kings 2:11 that Elijah went up into heaven like a whirlwind aboard a chariot pulled by horses of fire. Was that a UAP? Are the many references to angels in the Bible old wives’ tales?”

Satan’s Army of Demon Aliens

While we’ve all heard of Satan, better known as the devil from the Bible, Maginnis alleges his army of demons may, in fact, be malicious aliens.

“Today, Satan’s demonic army is very active. They manifest themselves through various practices such as divination, witchcraft, channeling, and wizardry (Deuteronomy 18:10-12). They deceive, attack the human mind with the intent of control, and they leverage power to take captive people, especially the prominent,” he wrote.

There’s Much We Don’t Understand

While Maginnis’ comments may appear ludicrous or outlandish, he explains that even if people dismiss his claims, we cannot deny that there’s is a lot about the universe that we have yet to fully understand.

“Whether aliens are probing Earth or are already among us is yet to be officially confirmed. What’s not in doubt for many of us is the spiritual battle between the forces of God and Satan, which is intensifying,” he said.

“In fact, the challenges we face today – pandemics, natural disasters, out-of-control crime, wars, and more – are likely influenced by the spirit world, which is leading us to the prophetic end times and might manifest itself as a spike in UAP sightings,” wrote Maginnis.
