UFOs and Deception: Signs and Lying Wonders by Jeff Wingo

“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: 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” (2 Thessalonians 2:8-9).

While reading these prophetic passages from the Bible I often ask myself, “What kind of signs and lying wonders might the Antichrist generate? What miraculous sign or wonder will he use to convince the world that he is God? That he, the Antichrist, is Jesus Christ, or at least a divine being worthy of human worship, as he will later demand?”

For answers, let us examine Luke 21:11 and 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9:

“And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” (Luke 21:11).

When I read a prophetic passage such as Luke 21:11 I must ask, “What kind of miracle or sign will we see in the heavens? What kind of fearful sights shall appear in the sky? What will this deception look like in real life?”

Because He addressed deception and the coming of many false Christs and false prophets, I know that the Lord Jesus does not want us to be deceived. I also know and have faith that His Word will provide all of the answers we need to prevent our falling for any kind of deception in the Last Days—but we must take these things seriously, read the Word and pray for understanding.

Please notice that the passage from Luke says the “fearful sights and great signs” will come “from heaven.”

The heaven Luke wrote of is not the domain of God, or the vast expanse of outer space or the universe, the heaven he refers to in this case is the expanse of the sky. Theologian Joseph Henry Thayer, author of Thayer’s Greek–English Lexicon (1889), seems to agree as he defines the Greek words and categorizes them according to context. Thayer defines the word heaven as it is used in Luke 21:11 as “the aerial heavens or sky, the region where the clouds and tempests gather, and where thunder and lightning are produced” “Strong’s G3772 – Ouranos[1]). This is corroborated by Vine’s Expository Dictionary as well.[2]

Therefore, according to Thayer’s Lexicon and Vine’s Expository Dictionary, the fearful sights and great signs shall appear above us in the heavens, in the atmosphere of Earth. This comes as no surprise given that most UFOs are seen in the sky, or as is the case with the International Space Station (before they shut off the camera feed), at least near the upper atmosphere of our planet.

It should also come no surprise to note that biblically, the atmosphere of Earth is the domain of Satan and his fallen comrades; he is called the prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2). I wrote about this extensively in my book Alien Antichrist (pages 95 to 101), proving that the atmosphere of Earth is the domain of an untold number of fallen spiritual beings.   

Signs and Lying Wonders

“Even him, (the Man of Sin, Antichrist) whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders…” (2 Thessalonians 2:9).

Let us get back to the passage from 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9. Paul said that the Man of Sin (who is the Antichrist, the Beast; all refer to the same being) will appear with all power from Satan; therefore, we know that the Antichrist will have an unlimited supply of satanic spiritual power to perform all kinds of deceptive miracles,

Again, I must ask, “What kind of signs and wonders will the Antichrist use to deceive humanity?” According to Thayer, signs can originate from God, the Lord Jesus Christ, or the apostles because he defines the word as, “Miracles and wonders by which God authenticates the men sent by him, or by which men prove that the cause they are pleading is God’s. [3]

But Thayer also uses the word to describe satanic deception; he defines the word as “signs (σημεῖα), by which men are deceived, (and) is ascribed also to false teachers, false prophets, and to demons.” [4]  

Going on, the words “lying wonder” is the Greek pseudos teras, and this is where it gets interesting. Pseudos[5] refers to something false, and teras[6] is the word for “wonder,” which according to Thayer refers to “something so strange as to cause it to be ‘watched’ or ‘observed.’”[7] Thayer goes on and says that others (other translators) connect the word teras with the Greek ἀστήρ (aster—star) and ἀστραπή (astrapē—lightning, a gleam of a lamp). Thayer then ties it all together nicely by further defining the word teras saying, “hence, ‘a sign in the heavens.’”[8]


From my research I realized a long time ago that authentic UFOs are demonic in origin. They appear in the sky or in the upper atmosphere of Earth and defy all the laws of physics.

Whether a UFO appears as a nut-and-bolts craft, an orb of light (or a group of lights), or a lightening-like object quickly moving across the sky, it does match the biblical description of a sign and lying wonder, and is in the heavens, which the biblical texts further express is place where fearful sights and great signs will appear in the Last Days.

When the Bible says that the whole world will be deceived by signs and lying wonders from the heavens, I think we should take notice of these things and search the Scriptures. It is imperative that we understand the nature of what is currently happening regarding UFOs, and what may possibly occur in the future.  

Considering that almost everyone is already indoctrinated with some form of Darwinian evolution, it is easy to go on to the next step and convince multitudes of people that aliens evolved on their home planet in the same way that life evolved here on Earth.

Working in tandem with evolution is the power of the media. Science fiction movies, books, TV, and the Internet have educated the public so well that a vast majority of people now believe extraterrestrial aliens are real. To top it all off, mainstream scientists, news articles, and official organizations such as NASA and SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence projects), regularly declare that ETs are real, and alien contact is not far away. With of all this happening now, it is rather easy to connect the dots and realize that a major deception is coming our way.

Additionally, when the deception is connected biblically to aerial phenomena resembling a moving star and/or lightning, I think we should sit up and take notice, something evil is happening. As Shakespeare wrote a long time ago, “Something wicked this way comes,”[9] and the wickedness we are being primed to accept is truly a pseudos teras, a lying sign or wonder from the heavens.
