On Monday June 18, 2018, President Donald Trump called for the establishment of a separate United States Space Force, creating a sixth branch of the U.S. military. I find that interesting not only due to the fact that the Space Force will be the “sixth” branch of the armed forces, but that the 6th branch placed in outer space is located in the domain of the Fallen angels, ruled by the Prince of the Power of the Air, which is the spirit of antichrist (Ephesians 2:2).

During remarks at a Meeting with the National Space Council, President Trump said, “Very importantly, I’m here by directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. That’s a big statement.”

I find that interesting on several levels. First, the Space Force is the sixth branch of the armed forces. The first five, Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard, currently represent the combined military power of the United States, and indeed, symbolically represents the military power of the world system, whether we are talking about the United States, China, Russia, etc.

In the Bible numbers have meaning, and concerning nations and world empires, we find the number five symbolizing world empires in Daniel chapter 2. In that momentous chapter, we see Daniel interpreting a dream for king Nebuchadnezzar, a dream of a great image of a metal man. The metal statue vividly described as having a head of gold, breast and arms of silver, belly and thighs of brass, two legs of iron, and finally feet and ten toes consisting of a mixture of iron and clay. Five characteristics symbolically describing the order of world empires.

A through study of Daniel chapters 2, 7, 8 and parts of 11, demonstrate that the interpretation describes world empires from Babylon to the return of Christ. The preciseness of the prophecy is the reason Bible critics and scoffers love to pick apart the book of Daniel. Yet, the Bible stands true, and we do have a more sure word of prophecy (2 Peter 1:19). Daniel is the Word of God and Daniel is a prophet as attested by Jesus Christ (Matthew 24:15). With that said, we find 5 descending empires described in chapter 2:

• Babylon is the head of gold (vs. 38).
• The Breast and Arms of Silver symbolize the Medo-Persian Empire (vs. 39).
• The Belly and Thighs of Brass represent the Empire of Alexander the Great (vs. 39), which was later divided by his four generals after the death of Alexander.
• The Two Legs of Iron symbolize the Roman Empire (vs. 40) and its later division into two empires, Rome in the west and Byzantium in the east.
• The Ten Toes of Iron mixed with Clay, End-Time Empire of the Antichrist Beast (vs. 41 – 43).

The final Empire, noted as a kingdom set up by the “God of heaven” (vs. 44), is represented as a stone cut out of a mountain without hands (without human agency), a stone which crushes the world empires of man, and the debris of human government blown away by the wind (power of the Holy Spirit). The Stone represents the coming of the Messiah, the Millennial kingdom of Jesus Christ, who is the Chief Corner stone of the church (Ephesians 2:20). Interestingly, 1 Peter 2:8 calls Jesus, “a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence (1 Peter 2:8); and Matthew 21:44 says, “And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder” (See also Luke 20:18).

It should be noted that in Daniel’s list of empires the kingdom of “the Stone,” being the kingdom of Christ, is number 6—is that because the coming of Jesus Christ stops the progression of man beyond the number 6? I believe so, and this demonstrates that God will only allow man to go so far before judgement comes.

Six is the number for man—the creation of man took place on the sixth day, and men are to work for six days and rest on the seventh day. The sixth commandment prohibits the murder of man, and if man goes beyond his decreed boundary, multiples of 6 begin to appear, as in the number of the Beast, 666, leading man away from God and into a satanic form of life and worship.

Even though the number 5 symbolically represents the military might of the United States, and indeed, is symbolic of all the nations of the world dominated by the spirit of antichrist, man desires to take human government further, into a domain that is not his, the stars of heaven. That is why I find the number 6 in this context very intriguing—6 is the number of man, and multiples of 6 represent the kingdom of Antichrist, as in the infamous number of the Beast 666 (Revelation 13:18).

God gave man dominion over the Earth, which is humanity’s domain. Yet, we have been reaching beyond that boundary for years, beginning at the Tower of Babel with “A city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven…” (Genesis 11:4). I think we may include in this our missions into outer space (which is a reach into the heavens, a place which declares the glory of God, Psalm 19), and now man desires to build a city and a tower on the planet Mars. I find it interesting that NASA named the lunar module on the first manned mission to the moon, Apollo 11, the Eagle.

Obadiah 1:4: Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD.


Additionally, the Eagle landed on the Sea of Tranquility. According to Webster, the word tranquility means “Calmness, quiet”, which refers to the place of landing for the Eagle—the calm sea. The word tranquility only appears once in the Bible, it is an Aramaic word (shĕlevah, Strong’s H7963), which Gesenius describes as security, and is found in Daniel 4: 27 when the prophet, speaking to king Nebuchadnezzar, counsels him to turn from sin to the God of heaven.

Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.

Only God gives man peace, without God, or specifically the Lord Jesus (our only way to the Father), man has no peace, nor forgiveness of sin. Nevertheless, speculating about this I have to wonder: is this why Satan and the Antichrist will pretend to come from the stars, as extraterrestrial aliens? Obviously, Satan also reached beyond his boundary and desired the place of God. Moreover, he wanted to soar above the stars of God and be “like God” to the rest of creation; hence his desire for the worship of men and angels.

Isaiah 14:13-14: For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

One day in the future, only a day that God knows, Satan and his angels shall be cast from the heavens to Earth (Revelation 12:7-9). On that day, humankind will experience a true extraterrestrial visitation. Over the years billions of people have been indoctrinated into Darwinian evolution, and when the Fallen Ones come to Earth, they will provide “proof” for that big lie—and unfortunately the Strong Delusion will pour over the Earth like Noah’s flood.

Luke 17:26: And as it was in the days of Noe (Noah), so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
