I really don’t know how to introduce this first article that is pretty disturbing. The scriptures…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” (Ephesians 6:12). “As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:36) come to mind! There were demons (sons of God) who appeared in visible form during Noah’s day, who even cohabited with women producing giants and clearly terrorizing the last inhabitants before the terrible judgment of the flood.
When you read this first article you will see that these spiritual experiences are leading these poor abductees to a material and spiritual evolutionary expectation that sounds a lot like transhumanism. I have posted about transhumanism before and have even given you an article to read from Creation Ministries that speaks about it from a biblical perspective. Of course that is the lens in which I will use to understand and interpret these strange goings on.
Have a read of this short letter by Donna Higbee…
ABDUCTEE BRAINWASHING? by Donna Higbee, CHT
Attitudes appear to be changing as many abductees who have been traumatized, physically abused and violated are now saying that their abductors have only spiritual and/or benevolent motives behind their actions. This growing new trend is a concern to a number of researchers and healthcare professionals who work with abductees. Many abductees who once reported tremendous fear of being taken repeatedly from their bedrooms and cars by non-human entities are now reporting being told by these entities that it was for their own good; that their fear was unwarranted and was simply a product of the abductee’s lack of understanding. In many cases, abductees who accept this explanation are also led to believe that technological advancement equals spiritual advancement.
In my letter, I stated that by the very meaning of the word, abduction implies being taken against one’s will with no say in the matter. It can include experiencing painful physical procedures, being lied to and given screen memories, being mentally terrorized, and being paralyzed, manipulated and controlled. There is nothing spiritual about any of these things and yet the abductors say they are highly advanced spiritual beings. It is very interesting that these non-human entities seem to have learned two ways to control human beings – through fear and through acceptance. Obviously we are seeing some abductees who are still being controlled and manipulated through fear, but we are also seeing abductees being controlled and manipulated through their acceptance of these entities as spiritual beings. By accepting these beings as highly spiritual, the abductee gives up seeking to end his abduction experiences and instead starts to welcome them. Instead of abductees coming into a sense of their own power as spiritual beings who do not need to give up their free will to anyone, what we are now seeing is a group of submissive, controlled abductees who are passively letting the abductors do as they want with them in the name of spiritual progress. Given the infinite variety and creativity of the whole mind, how is it that hypnotic recollections of the victims, often including deeply felt sensory experiences, have such striking parallels? Could it be that a ‘cult’ of some type is forming and having influence upon the story? … Culture and historical factors may strongly influence what comes forth. Here in our technological, educated and motive culture, when something doesn’t make sense in our head, we switch to ‘faith,’ to a spirituality of some sort. Once this switch occurs, we have a ‘cult,’ and in the case of abductees as a group, a ‘cult’-ure built around technological unknowns. Perhaps all semblance of reason is not lost, just put on hold for a while as the body (collective and individual) tries to make some sense out of stuff that cannot possibly find correlation. This trend among the abductee community has not been so named, perhaps out of the same denial which seems to be increasingly prevalent in the various stories .. stories that have begun to shift in character and substance. Now abduction is no longer a horrible violation but a necessary component of a great plan. Now the aliens who are beaming into our bedrooms are no longer uninvited violators of the human story, but welcome harbingers of our ‘salvation.’
Read the above that I have quoted for you very carefully (especially the last paragraph which is about cult like thinking and the new culture that is upon us) and then consider these words…
“I have come to believe firmly that our future, peace, justice, and fulfillment, happiness and harmony on this planet will not depend on world government but on divine or cosmic government “…my great personal dream is to get a tremendous alliance between all major religions and the U.N.” (Robert Muller, former director of the United Nations and now president of “Peace University”).
“Humanity is on the verge of something entirely new, a further evolutionary step unlike any other: the emergence of the first global civilization.” (Thomas Berry, Catholic theologian).
“I (see) images of a new heaven and a new earth…THIS WORLD will be saved. The planet will be healed and harmonized. We can let the kingdom come…which means that THIS WORLD can be transformed into a heaven right now…This is no fantasy. This is not scientific or religious fiction. This is the main event of our individual lives.” (John Randolph Price, Organizer of the World Instant of Cooperation). [source]
The way I see it is that this spiritual/material/technical evolutionary thinking has a lot to do with rejecting not only the scriptures as a whole but also the Genesis account of creation. Gary Bates has written a book and countless articles that explains this. In fact Lorrie from Grow up Deep came across one of his articles entitled “Prepare ye the way—the aliens are coming! Popular fantasy becomes cultural ‘fact’”. Our cultural thinking is being shaped by something completely different to the Truths laid out in God’s Word. Our culture IS on the brink of a new paradigm shift where God’s Word is no longer valid and historically true – where it was intended to be so – but rather understood to be a mythological truth. A great story about man’s relationship with a God and how we are co-creators of this world.
Brian McLaren has even stated…
“My Christian identity is more about joining God in the healing, restoration and development and evolution of the world moving toward a brighter, richer and deeper future,” [source]
I ask you this. What happens when people and the church reject the bible and the creation account as being literal truth, then you have more and more people talking about transhumanism and spiritual beings that can help us with human and planetary healing?
These spiritual beings have said to their captives that they have been genetically created by them (they are our gods!) and that they are here to help the world with all its problems. Affectively they are our saviours! When the Church listens to the half truths that Brian McLaren and others of the same persuasion, the church will have no defence against these spiritual principalities that are shaping our culture. Can you join the dots? Can you see the bigger picture? Can you see how all this fits in with the great delusion that is going to come to this planet? A delusion so strong that God Himself sends because the church does not love the Truth!
2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
