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.

The Prophet Joel by Michelangelo, Sistine Chapel, 1508-1512

The Prophet Joel by Michelangelo, Sistine Chapel, 1508-1512

“I was reading an article the other day by Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal at the Huffington Post titled, John Podesta: Pulling Back the Curtain on UFOs.  It details the efforts of Podesta and others to somehow convince government insiders to release more information about UFO phenomena.

Of course the official stance of the U.S. government since the shutdown of Project Bluebook in 1969 is to deny there is any official interest in the subject at all. Since the Air Force determined that UFOs do not present a national security risk, they dropped the subject like a hot potato and refuse to acknowledge anything else.

In spite of official denials, many military officials, generals, pilots, etc., have already gone on record regarding their experience with the phenomena through gatherings at the National Press Club, and recently through the Disclosure  Project of Dr. Steven Greer. So given that, it is established that many UFOs are real, and do represent an actual phenomena that defies all rational explanation.

The article goes on to state that, “The phenomenon’s physical reality is now firmly established. But its nature and origin remain a problem.” 

Reading a book called, Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind: Selected Writings of John Keel, Keel states in an article (chapter 22, The Secret Tape to the Congress of Scientific Ufologists), that it was his opinion that the United States military and other related government entities probably had the UFO phenomena figured out in 1946 (or at least by the 1950’s).

According to Keel the phenomena is related to the Earth, in other words, it has always been here, interacting with mankind in one way or another. Keel in his book Operation Trojan Horse even went so far as to say that the  phenomena is probably demonic in origin, or is at least similar in nature.

“The  UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomena.” {1}

With that said, I also believe Air Force personnel (and others in the government) were intelligent and discerning enough back in the 1940’s, or at least by the end of Project Bluebook in 1969, to have figured out the spiritual nature of the UFO phenomena, just as John Keel, Jacques Vallee, and others also came to understand its deceptive nature.

I say that because back in those days, a Christian understanding of the nature of the spiritual world was more prevalent at that time among the general population than it is today. Perhaps at that time someone of authority realized, like Keel, that UFOs are related to the “age-old demonological phenomena,” and with that determination they decided to back away from it altogether, at least publicly; because as a national authority, and the guardians of the nation, they just could not come right out and say–its demons folks! So officially the Air Force determined that UFOs do not pose a national security risk and abandoned it altogether.

Once they determined it could not be controlled, I wonder if they tried to harness it somehow? And I wonder if they are tracking its activity to this day, perhaps monitoring it for changes? Or, did they really just walk away from it altogether? I am of the opinion that they are still interested in UFO and related phenomena in some capacity. I cannot believe that interested parties would abandon such power, if there were only a way to tap into it somehow (Think of Faust, who made a pact with the Devil for access to unlimited knowledge).

The reason I ask these questions is because I also wonder if they realize that it does indeed pose a great risk to the security of the United States, and to the rest of the world. It does present a very strong risk because the nature of the phenomena will drastically change at some point in the future, and I wonder if government entities realize this and will adjust accordingly? I highly doubt it at this point in time, more than likely no one is paying any attention because they have other priorities, and rightly so, given our present circumstances, and the worldview of the present Administration which seems to be fully antichrist in nature.

It is a biblical truth that the UFO phenomena will change so dramatically that the entities behind it will actually physically manifest in our time, space dimension. It was revealed to the prophet Joel that our planet will be invaded by a monstrous swarm of locusts, and they in turn will devour everything on Earth. Indeed, Joel said that never in the history of planet Earth has anyone ever seen anything like this invasion force, a force that he said God refers to as “my great army.”

Joel chapter 1:

The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.  Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?

Joel ask the question, has anything like this ever happened before in your days or even in the days of your fathers? The answer is of course no, because this invasion is unlike anything that currently exists on planet Earth. Joel goes on to say that this information needs to be passed down through the generations:

Vs.3: Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.


What Joel says next is interesting because he explains the different types of invaders.

Vs.4:  That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten.

  • The palmerworm is a gäzäm’, a creeping locust, without wings. It also implies that it is a devourer, a destroyer.
  • Locust is an ‘arbeh, or swarming locust. They devour anything in their path, stripping trees, bushes, crops, etc. They pass over walls and enter the doors and windows of houses.
  • Cankerworm is yeh’lek a young type of locust which means to “lick up.”
  • Caterpillar is a chaciyl which is a non-winged locust that means to consume, devour.

As you can see each locust is one who strips and devours the bark and vine, in fact, anything green they consume. Next Joel gives a dire warning about the locust, because most people aren’t prepared to deal with this severe judgment.

Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.

Wine represents plenty and joy, and it appears that the days of plenty and days of joy are come to an end. Next Joel describes this army in more detail.

Vs.6:  For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.

When Joel wrote these words he may have been referring to an actual locust invasion of the land. If that is true, it provided a clear, unmistakable picture for the future–because in verse 15 he brings this prophecy to a period in time called the day of the Lord. The phrase day of the Lord occurs 19 times in the Old Testament and always refers to the period of judgment that will occur before the return of Christ.

Comparing Joel’s description with John’s Revelation we begin to see a complete picture of this great nation–because the locusts of John’s vision also are pictured as a mighty army with teeth like a lion.

Rev. 9:3, 7-9:  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.   And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.

John says these locust beast have an appearance of horses prepared for battle. Compare Joel’s description in chapter 2:

Vs.4: The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.

Joel places his locusts near the Day of the Lord, and John is writing of the coming invasion by locusts creatures released from the abyss. I think we may conclude that Joel and John are writing about the same army. An army of invaders who will devour the land and fill the Earth with destruction.

It is clear that this is an army of intelligent creatures because they have a king over them called Abbadon and Apollyon.

Rev. 9: 11: And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

It is interesting to note that Abbadon means Destruction and Apollyon means Destroyer.

When this invasion occurs nothing will remain untouched on Earth because the Destructive Destroyer will devour everything. Just like the locusts of Joel’s vision they will strip the life out of every nation on Earth, including the United States of America.

Joel says this great army is “a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations” (Joel 2:2).

Even Jesus said the Great Tribulation will be unlike anything that has ever happened in all of the history of Earth, there really is nothing to compare with this period of time called the Day of the Lord. “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matt.24:21).

I wonder if the United States military will reverse their position on UFOs when this invasion hits the shores of America?

Even so, come Lord Jesus, even if it means we have to face the Great Tribulation.
