There is something strange going on in the news lately regarding alien contact. Why would various countries, and extremely wealthy individuals, spend untold millions of dollars to build deep space radio telescopes in an attempt to contact aliens? The SETI Institute, (SETI is an acronym which stands for Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence), located in Mountain View California, has been scanning the skies since 1984, without success. So why have others decided to invest hundreds of millions of dollars, as well as countless man-hours, in an apparently futile effort to detect signals from an extraterrestrial source in the universe?

The SETI Institute, uses both optical and radio telescopes to search for signals from an extraterrestrial intelligence. They utilize several ground-based instruments such as the Allen Telescope Array and Lick Observatory, both based in California, as well as the W. M. Keck Observatory, and the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility located in Hawaii. In addition, they also use The Very Large Telescope based in  the Atacama Desert of northern Chile. SETI researchers also scan the heavens with space-based units such as the Hubble, Spitzer, and Herschel telescopes.

These are by no means the only SETI programs in existence. The University at Berkeley currently operates SERENDIP, which is an acronym for “Search for Extraterrestrial Radio Emissions from Nearby Developed Intelligent Populations. They use data from the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico. At the University of Bologna, Italy, there is the Medecina Radio Observatory, which is operated by the Institute for Radio Astronomy and the National Institute for Astrophysics by the government of Italy.

In addition to all of this there are other programs operated by Berkeley, and also Harvard. Furthermore, lets not forget about Vatican astronomers also scanning the heavens. So why the intense interest in building more telescopes to search for proof of alien life? Do they see something coming our way?

In 2010 Professor Stephen Hawking warned about the possible dangers of alien contact. Recently Hawking warned about the dangers of Artificial Intelligence, human aggression, and again, about the possible dangers of alien contact.  Then, last July, Hawking once again discussed the possible dangers to humanity resulting from alien contact, but he said “let’s search anyway.”

Now with his pronouncement of “let’s search anyway,” Stephen Hawking gave his support to the Breakthrough Listen and Breakthrough Message initiatives. With the influx of 100 million dollars provided by Silicon Valley technology investor physicist Yuri Milner, “Breakthrough Listen, will be the most powerful search ever taken for signs of intelligent life beyond Earth. The project will survey the 1 million stars in the Milky Way closest to Earth, as well as the 100 closest galaxies” (from article, Stephen Hawking Helps Launch Massive Search for E.T., dated July 20, 2015).

The second program, also funded by Milner, Breakthrough Message, “will fund an international competition to determine the content of messages sent from humanity to alien civilizations.”

Not to be left behind, China is building the worlds largest deep space radio telescope, (larger than 30 soccer fields). Located in China’s Guizhou Province, the telescope is so large it takes 40 minutes just to walk around the structure. It will also be the worlds most sensitive listening device. According to the article at, the telescope will enable Chinese scientists to “observe outer space,” and “it will help us to search for intelligent life outside of the galaxy and explore the origins of the universe.”

So, what are we to make of all this. I just began to wonder, why would a billionaire would invest 100 million dollars to search for alien life? In my mind a billionaire tech investor is not going to fund a worthless project, there must be a payoff somewhere in the future. Since SETI has produced no results after more than 30 years of research, why would Stephen Hawking and billionaire  physicist Yuri Milner undertake such an apparently futile effort–to find an alien intelligence in the universe? Then again, why would the Chinese government and military invest hundreds of millions of dollars to construct a deep space telescope?

Is it possible that behind the scenes, unknown to the general public, a signal from an intelligent source has already been received?

That is the only reason I can think of that would spur someone to invest 100 million dollars into a project that may not produce a return on the investment. Is it possible that Hawking now gives his blessing, and great mind, to a project because an alien signal has already been received?

Friends with all that is in my heart I tell you the truth. If these efforts do produce results, and if these efforts do allow our scientists to send and receive messages from an alien intelligence, we may be closer to the Tribulation and the revelation of the Dragon, and the Antichrist Beast, than I thought.

According to the Bible, Earth will be invaded by three waves of alien warriors. However, these aliens will not be aliens in the conventional sense, such as the benevolent aliens portrayed in science fiction. The aliens that will come to Earth will be a manifestation of the Dragon and his Fallen Angels. When they do arrive that will be a clear indication that we have entered the time of the end, the End of Days. We are caught in the crosshairs of a dangerous inter-dimensional war. It is an ancient conflict between the forces of darkness, and the holy forces of Almighty God.

The Bible warns us about the invasion of our planet by malignant forces of evil:

Michael casts out rebel angels. Illustration by Gustave Doré.

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Revelation 12:7-9

But God in His mercy warned us of the deception. The beings that descend to Earth are not aliens, they are the Fallen Hosts of heaven. Are we listening?

Revelation 12:12: …Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
