MYSTERY BABYLON by Jeff Wingo

A Woman Rides the Beast; From a woodcut by Albrecht Durer (1471-1528).

The Bible describes a great end-time religious conglomerate called Mystery Babylon:

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:  With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.  So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.  And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:  And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.  And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Revelation 17:1-6

Mystery describes Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots. That she is the originator of all of the false religious systems ever conceived in the history of the world is beyond dispute.  All false religions have their origin in the Mystery religions of ancient Babylon.

The history of Babylon goes back deep in antiquity, about 3,000 years before the Christian era. Nimrod was the founder of the city,  and he had a wife named Semiramis who, it is believed, founded the original Mystery Religion based on the promised seed of Genesis 3:15 (the first promise from God of a Savior-Messiah who would be born of the seed of the woman which eventually found its fulfillment in the Son of God, Jesus Christ).

The religion she founded was based on the supposed miraculous birth of her child Tammuz; and Semiramis and Tammuz are the original source of the Mother-Child motif as found in many ancient religions. In fact, this is the source of the Mother and Child in Christianity to this day. That is how powerful the original Mystery Religion of ancient Babylon is; its influence is still being felt to this very day. Semiramis_and_Tammuz

As the myth continues, Tammuz was killed by a wild beast, and later through cult ritual restored to life, a resurrection from the dead.

I’m sure by now that you may have noticed the similarity to the resurrection of the Beast in Revelation 13:3:  And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

 Tammuz was even worshiped by the ancient Hebrews; the prophet Ezekiel wrote about this pagan blasphemy as it was practiced in the Temple at Jerusalem.

Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Ezekiel 8:14

It is absolutely amazing isn’t it! Are you shocked by this (if you did not know it before?). I am, and what shocks me most of all is how this dark cult found its way around the world. She was also known as Ashtoreth and Tammuz, Isis and Horus, Aphrodite and Eros (Cupid), and as Mother Shing Moo and her child in ancient China. In biblical times the Mother eventually became known as the Queen of Heaven, and the Prophet Jeremiah wrote about her influence among the Israelites.

The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Jeremiah 7:18; see also Jeremiah 44:17-19, 25.

15th-century_unknown_painters_-_Madonna_on_a_Crescent_Moon_in_Hortus_Conclusus_-_WGA23736As you have noticed the Queen of Heaven is still worshipped today as Mary, the Queen of Heaven and the child Jesus. Incredible isn’t?

I mean no disrespect to anyone, and I have no axe to grind with Catholicism, this is just the hard truth that we must face when we discuss the ancient origins of Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots. We must follow the truth of history as we find it.

After Babylon fell to the Medes and the Persians in 539 B.C., they tried to dissuade the worship of the ancient Babylonian religion. However, as history testifies, the pagan priests of the Babylonian cult would not surrender their religious practice, and so they just moved the cult from Babylon to the city of Pergamum where eventually one of the seven churches of Revelation was founded (see Rev. 2::12-17).

The priests of the cult wore a hat that resembled a fish head; the headdress also bore the title “Keeper of the Bridge” which was a statement that reminded the faithful that they were the keepers of the way to the gods. This was later adopted by the Roman Emperors (who saw themselves as gods) and Latinized into the familiar Pontifex Maximus  which means “Major Keeper of the Bridge.” This same title was also adopted by the Bishop of Rome, the Pope, who is now known by all as the Pontiff. {1}  The ancient Mystery Religion of Babylon has influenced many cults around the world but none of them are as powerful as the Roman Catholic Church which adopted all of this and more into its doctrine.

Strange how we finally come full circle with Mystery Babylon isn’t it? Rome however isn’t the only major church to adopt Babylonian paganism into its system. Elements of Mystery Babylon are found in most churches today in one form or another. Consider the Evangelical church–today many have incorporated components of Eastern paganism with the adoption of yoga as a system of exercise, and many Christians use pagan meditation techniques (taken from the Catholic Desert Fathers) now called Contemplative or Centering prayer, entering the so-called silence as a way to reach God–this is nothing new, it’s just Eastern religion and other paganism dressed up for undiscerning Christians.

Many Word-Faith groups claim to use the power of “faith” to work supposed miracles–faith is not a magic force to be manipulated, it is simply trust in God, believing in His promises. And many of these groups also believe that they are “little gods.” That is also not a new doctrine–its ancient paganism dressed up for modern Christians, and with no surprise the Roman Church also holds to that doctrine, that a man may through Christ eventually become a god (just as in Mormonism).  The Catechism of the Catholic Church (1994) teaches on page 129: “For the Son of God became man so that we might become God. The only-begotten Son of God wanting to make us sharers in his divinity, assumed our nature, so that he, made man, might make men gods.”  Rather shocking isn’t it?

I could go on and on with proof after proof of the influence of Mystery Babylon, and others have written about it more eloquently that I have. But realize this: Anything that adds to Jesus Christ, any system of doctrine that adds to the gospel such as works, baptism, the communion wafer and wine, mysteries, magic clothing, amulets, icons, supposed prophetic anointing’s–anything that they may tack onto Jesus and the gospel is another gospel and is part of Mystery Babylon. The Holy Spirit is still calling out to all of us:

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4

The gospel of Christ is so simple–it is so simple to understand that a young child can grasp it, yet so profound that Theologians have stumbled over it and have been confounded with it for almost 2,000 years; and the gospel is this:

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.. 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10:9-10, 13.

That’s the gospel and that is the truth, anything else is just an example of Mystery Babylon and the spirit of antichrist in action–for there are many antichrists, 1 John 2:18.

If you would like to know more about the spirit of antichrist and the strong delusion of the last days then I recommend to you my book, Alien Antichrist, The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days. You can find the book at Amazon at the following link:

bookcoverimagealien-antichrist1[1]

http://www.amazon.com/Alien-Antichrist-Terrifying-Truth-Aliens/dp/1496119460/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie= UTF8&qid=1415479401&sr=1-1&keywords=alien+antichrist

The book is full of notes and explanation about the coming alien delusion. I felt the Lord direct me to write the book to explain what is going to happen once alien disclosure occurs. There is coming a very strong delusion that is going to sweep over this world like a powerful Tsunami. Who do you think most people are going to believe: the God of the Bible who requires faith, or a supposed alien being standing right in front of them–knowing the power of conformity, and the power of the strong delusion, most people are going to choose the aliens over the Savior of the Bible. Get the book and at least arm yourself with the truth about the aliens and the Alien Antichrist.

THE TWO BEASTS OF REVELATION 13: THE SECOND BEAST by Jeff Wingo

Durer, Beast out of earth

The Second Beast coming up out of the Earth; From a woodcut by Albrecht Durer (1471 – 1528).

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.  And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understand- ing count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. 
Revelation 13:11-18
As you can see from the above Scripture, the Second Beast comes from the Earth. The meaning is clear: The Second Beast comes from the Earth; Because he will arise from humanity. Unlike the First Beast who is a fallen angel from the Abyss (which is under the ocean or sea), this Second Beast is from the Earth, meaning he originates from the sons of men.
When John says, “I beheld another Beast,” the word another denotes another of the same type, i.e., the same kind of evil character. The distinct difference is that the First Beast is a fallen angel, a Warrior-King incarcerated in the dark chamber of Tartarus,  and the Second Beast is more inline with the idea of a Messiah-like figure, that of a Lamb; and this is in imitation of Christ, the Lamb of God (John 1:29).
The Second Beast comes to humanity clothed in religion, he appears to be a meek and lowly lamb but the words that come out of his mouth are that of a Dragon. In other words, he speaks as a representative of the Dragon. His appearance is what disarms the people of the world when he enters the stage to play his part in the end-time scenario.
As such then he represents Mystery Babylon and all of the spiritual elements that are incorporated into it. He is the personification of the Mystery of Iniquity that Paul wrote about (2 Thess.2:7); and in that sense he represents apostate Christianity.
Now this is where I am going to get myself into trouble with some folks; I do not say things to stir controversy, that is not my way, nor is it my intention to create a problem. In fact, I realize that I may lose some readers because of the following  comments, but I must be true to the Scriptures.
In my book, Alien Antichrist, I noted that today we are strongly inflicted with a disease these days; that being the spiritual plague of political correctness. On page 189 I wrote, “In order to correctly weigh the evidence though, we must consider the political, religious, and cultural climate we live with–because if we accept the political correctness that is swirling all around, it will blind us to the truth and taint our ability to properly discern the circumstances as they develop.” {1} And I stand by that statement regardless because it is true.  The False Prophet will be a human man and “as circumstances change his power will grow and his authority will be felt by everyone on earth.” {2}
The Holy Spirit is still speaking today–and one of the things He is whispering (for those willing to listen), is that you must leave Mystery Babylon behind. Mystery Babylon represents every false religious system known to humanity, and it is found in Evangelical Churches, Protestant Mainline Churches, the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Churches and any other church system which relies on good works, rituals, the communion wafer, dead saints, supposed mysteries, or any other thing rather than Christ alone to attain eternal salvation. The Bible teaches that salvation can only be attained by faith alone, in Christ alone; He died for our sins, was buried, and three days later He arose from the dead, that is the gospel (1 Corinth.15:1-4). If any thing is added to the Gospel of Christ it is part of Mystery Babylon. {3}
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” 
Rev.18:4
***********************************************************************
THE IDENTITY OF THE FALSE PROPHET
Symbolically the False Prophet is identified and represented with “two horns like a lamb;” in that sense we may identify him as a Messiah-like figure. Indeed, he will think of himself as a Messiah-like figure, the representative of God on the Earth.
The False Prophet will be the bridge-builder between humanity and the aliens when they do arrive.
As I wrote in my book, Alien Antichrist, several years before I started on the book I was trying to understand the identity of the Beast from the Sea and the Second Beast from the Earth. “When I finally understood that the Antichrist was not a human being, but rather a fallen angel, I also realized that the False Prophet had to be a human being, and possibly would act as an intermediary between the aliens and mankind.” {4}  That line of reasoning proved to be right once I placed a prophecy found in Daniel in its proper perspective. Here is the passage:
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. Daniel 9:26-27
The prince that shall come is the False Prophet, not the Antichrist as some would erroneously believe. The False Prophet will come from the people who destroyed the city and the sanctuary. As most of you know, that event occurred in A.D. 70 when Titus and the Roman legions destroyed the city of Jerusalem and the Temple complex. “The ‘people’ were the Romans and the logical modern-day equivalent to the Romans is the spiritual and temporal power of the Vatican at Rome; ‘the prince that shall come’ is none other than the head of the Vatican, the Pope.” {5}
That should not come as a surprise when you consider that the only worldwide organization that could possibly function in a religious capacity like this is the Vatican.  They already see themselves as the mediator between God and man, and so in that sense a pope will fulfill Bible prophecy as the False Prophet to lead humanity to embrace the aliens. Indeed, the Vatican will mediate between humanity and the aliens, and become the Bridge-Builder between the two.
Is that why Pope Francis and Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno are talking about aliens so much these days? Both of them have stated that they would be more than willing to baptize aliens when they arrive. {6}  Don’t you find it rather strange that this kind of talk is coming from the Vatican?
Although many of you may disagree with me on this, I do think it is interesting that the Pope and his cohorts are communicating to the faithful that it is ok to believe in both evolution and aliens. After all those two topics do go hand-in-hand, especially when you place their pronouncements alongside TV programs such as Ancient Aliens, which also teaches to the masses the connection between aliens and evolution.
Perhaps the Vatican is positioning itself to be the intermediary between aliens and mankind; and when alien disclosure occurs, I would be willing to wager that a representative from the Vatican will be right alongside all of the scientists and astronomers who make such an earthshaking pronouncement. And it will be earthshaking because once alien disclosure takes place life will never be the same for any of us.
Once a disclosure event occurs, one that announces to the world that advanced, intelligent, alien life does exist in the universe, and that contact has been established; that one event should be the signal to those with wisdom that the Great Tribulation is just around the corner. Because according to Bible prophecy it won’t be long before the aliens arrive and show themselves to the world.
That event will be the lie that Paul wrote about. It will be the energeia plane’ or strong delusion that will deceive the people of the world (2 Thess.2:11). Once this strong delusion is released the Antichrist Beast will also be released–the Warrior-King will be set free to bring his reign of chaos to the world through an empire called Babylon the Great.
The shame of  all of this is that the ones who will be the least prepared for alien disclosure are Evangelical Christians and others. And the reason for this should be obvious–they erroneously believe that they will escape the horrors of the Tribulation through a pre-tribulation rapture.
Unfortunately, most of them will find out the hard way that there is no pre-tribulation rapture in the Bible, it’s just not there. In fact, the only rapture spoken of is when Christ visibly returns to earth.  And that may cause a great falling away and a crisis of faith for those trapped in the delusion that Christ will whisk them away from all of the troubles on the earth before all hell breaks loose.  Don’t be deceived by the doctrines of men–read the Bible for yourself, allow it to shape your doctrine and your worldview.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Matthew 24:29-31

EBOLA, UFOS AND ALIENS, AND THE TEN PLAGUES OF EGYPT by Jeff Wingo

Martin,_John_-_The_Seventh_Plague_-_1823

John Martin, The Seventh Plague, 1823

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:  That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2 Peter 3:1-4
Most people have the notion that things in the world will always remain the same as each day arrives. The sun rises and the sun sets. Summer, then fall, winter, then spring. It always comes, year after year, you can count on it. While we can trust the mechanistic motion of the planet as it hurdles through space and time in our solar system, the affairs of humanity are far from mechanical. Nothing remains the same, and the news fluctuates one way then the next; one day there is bad news, another day there is good news. The point is, that as time moves forward everything around us is constantly changing, and subject to a million variables.
One thing that many people never count on, or at least try to put out of their mind, is that one day God will judge the world. What that means to us personally is that our lives are accountable to Him for everything that we have done.  God will also judge the world collectively, meaning that His judgment will fall not just on you and me, but the entire planet.
Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
Acts 17:31
As Christians we know that Jesus bore the penalty for our sin on the cross, so we will not face judgment for sin, but we will face the Judgment Seat of Christ, the place where our works are judged by fire (2 Cor.5:10). But for those who refuse Christ, or those people who are yet to come to Him for forgiveness and cleansing, judgment is coming, although for the moment it waits in the wings–or is it? Is it possible we are facing judgment right now?
I was thinking about the Ebola crisis in West Africa and how this plague is beginning to spread around the world. It starts in one place and because of the movement of people the plague travels into other population centers. From West Africa it has spread to Europe and the United States. I just read that the country of Mali now has a case of Ebola, and of course here in the States Ebola is in Texas, Atlanta, and now New York.  I have even seen a few news articles that there may be more cases in the U.S., it is just being covered up and called malaria and typhoid. {1} If that turns out to be true, we are in serious trouble.
And then I began to think about the plague of Ebola in relation to the ten plagues of Egypt as told in the Bible. You remember the story I’m sure. The story is told in Exodus 7-12.  Moses went to Pharaoh and requested that he release the Hebrew people so that they could journey into the wilderness to worship the Lord. Pharaoh responded to Moses by saying, “Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go” (Ex. 5:2).
Well, it did not take long for Pharaoh to find out about the Lord because not long after God sent ten plagues upon the land of Egypt. For the sake of brevity I have listed them here followed by my commentary.
1. Turning the Nile river into blood. The Nile was worshipped as a god and several of the gods of Egypt were connected with it. This caused the water to become unusable and killed the fish as well.
2. Plague of frogs. This plague was directed to the god Hekt, a frog-headed goddess. Frogs overran the land and when they died it became unbearable to the people of Egypt.
3. The plague of lice.  This plague was actually a small gnat; the air and land was filled with a small stinging gnat. The sting was very irritating to the skin and would overwhelm the nose, mouth, and eyes. The dust of the land was turned into these tiny swarming insects. I don’t think we fully grasp how horrifying this particular plague was.
4. The plague of flies. In this plague the flies were a type of biting dog-fly that would cause great irritation, especially to the eyes. God protected Israel during this plague allowing Pharaoh to see the hand of God, as He separated the people of Israel from the Egyptians.
5. The plague of murrain. This plague destroyed the livestock of Egypt; the cattle, horses, camels, donkeys, sheep, and goats. The cattle and other animals of the Israelites were unharmed.
6. The plague of boils. This was a disease resulting in very painful (burning, swelling) boils and blisters that would rise up in the skin.  Gesenius calls it an inflamed ulcer, a type of leprosy causing the body to become encrusted with black scales and a swelling of the feet. {2}
7. The plague of hail and fire. This was a very destructive storm that left Egypt a broken, devastated land. Hail fell upon man and beast and also on the fields; the hail was accompanied by thunder and lightning that burst upon the ground.  Interestingly, God demonstrated grace before this plague was unleashed by warning Pharaoh to gather whatever cattle and crops remained to protect them from the storm.
8. The plague of locusts. This plague finished the crops of Egypt. The locusts left nothing behind; every tree, and all plant life were consumed. The land itself was darkened by layer upon layer of locusts.
9. The plague of darkness. This was an unearthly darkness that could be felt. This supernatural darkness was directed toward Ra the sun-god; it demonstrated the power of God over all of Egypt. The Israelites however had light in their dwellings.
10. The plague of the death of the first-born. The power of life and death is in the hand of the God of heaven. The Israelites were protected by an act of faith. They had to kill a male lamb and smear its blood on the top and sides of the doorway. The lamb was then to be roasted and eaten as a Passover lamb. This prefigured the sacrifice of Christ, the Lamb of God.
***********************************************************************
As you have seen, God directed each plague against the gods of the Egyptians.  Is God doing this with Ebola? Will the god of  science become ineffective, unable to stop the progression of the deadly Ebola virus? Will this become a judgment plague just like the painful boils and blisters the Egyptians suffered?  What about the death of the first-born? Will Ebola consume not just the first-born of our families, but everyone? Will it touch all of us in some way? I only hope the answer is no to all of those questions.
But then there is the statement of Jesus:
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
Nothing is more fearful to mankind than famine and pestilence. Famine refers to scarcity of harvest. Of course, if the crops fail people go hungry. In the United States, California is currently experiencing a severe drought which is affecting crop production. The San  Joaquin Valley, sometimes called the “salad bowl of the world” is in danger of becoming a dust bowl. Incredibly, part of this is manmade because of environmental politics. {3}
Pestilence refers to “any epidemic outbreak of a deadly and highly infectious disease, such as the plague.” {4} In the case of Ebola thousands of people have perished and unless God intervenes thousands more will perish as well. The danger however doesn’t just come from the disease–just as dangerous is the panic coming from the population and governments who refuse to implement proper protocols to protect the uninfected population. Unfortunately, politics, government denial, and cover up will help to spread the disease.
Plagues and pestilence are definitely part of the end-time scenario. Just as with ancient Egypt, God will allow pestilence as an act of divine judgment. The pattern is in the Bible. The Lord does have abundant mercy and grace, however, His patience with men does have a limit, and He has appointed a day for both reconciliation and judgment. That is what the book of Revelation is all about. And sometimes when God begins to move, pestilence goes before Him.

God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.  And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power.  Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet.  He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting.

Habakkuk 3:3-6
NOTE: Lest anyone misunderstand, I am not saying that the people of West Africa are under the judgment of God, nor the United States, Europe, or any other place. I am just trying to point out prophetic patterns in the Bible and how God at times seems to deal with humanity. I am not a prophet, nor do I always correctly discern the mind of the Lord. Perhaps God intended that the more prosperous countries should help the people of Africa. Because the world was slow to respond the rest of the world may suffer as well. If we had intervened in West Africa and used our resources in a way to help the people overcome extreme poverty and Ebola, we would not be facing a possible epidemic in the States. Who is to say that Ebola in the United States  is not a judgment because of our selfishness and desire for extreme comfort, rather than sacrifice, to help those in need who desperately need our help. Jeff Wingo
 ***********************************************************************
 THE JUDGEMENT OF DELUSION
 The Lord will judge the world in righteousness, and He has appointed a day when the prophetic hammer will fall. Just as pestilence refers to a plague that affects the human body, there is also a plague that affects the mind; and it is called energeia plane’ or strong delusion. The word “energeia” always refers to supernatural power, whether the source is God or Satan. “Plane'” refers to a mental straying, one led from the right way to roam all over the place. In other words, no stability, and no way to find truth; error which leads to deceit or fraud {5}
That definition is actually frightening when you think about it, especially when you look at the context of the verse in 2 Thessalonians 2:11. The most frightening aspect though is that this strong delusion comes not from Satan but from God! That is judgment of the highest order. The precedence is in the book of 2 Kings:
And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.  And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him.  And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.  Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.
2 Kings 22:20-23
 The Lord sent a prophetic spirit to cause the false prophets of Ahab to lie to him so that he would be lead astray; and in this case the lying spirit led Ahab to his death. That is what Paul’s word is about in 2 Thessalonians chapter two. The source of the energeia plane’ or strong delusion is God; “that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (vs. 12). That is when the grace of God has reached its limits, and that is frightening. Jesus told us not to fear “them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matt.10:28).
Part of the strong delusion are fearful sights in the heavens. If you consider the power that the alien delusion has taken on in our culture, especially through the medium of entertainment, it is clear that there is a conditioning process taking place; and it is leading to a belief that aliens exist, and it is building up to alien disclosure. Even the Pope and his cohorts are talking about aliens as they prepare humanity for the inevitable–alien disclosure. {6} Even the astronomers of NASA are also talking about the discovery of alien life and possible alien disclosure. {7} I believe that is proof that something of a deep spiritual nature is going on.
Fearful sights in the heavens refers to something in the sky that strikes terror or fear; and that describes aliens, especially for those unfortunate people who suffer because of episodes of so-called “alien abduction.” For those who may misunderstand let me be clear–fallen angels are the cause of authentic UFO and alien activity, including the alien abduction experience. Those impacted by it are being influenced and attacked by fallen angels.  It is a spiritual issue that will overtake humanity in the end of days. I believe it is the energeia plane’ or strong delusion of the last days.
When Jesus used the words “great signs” referring of course to aerial phenomena, he used a word which refers to “a sign, prodigy, portent, i.e. an unusual occurrence, transcending the common course of nature.” It can also refer to “signs portending remarkable events soon to happen.” {8} Jesus also said that false christs will perform great signs, and they will also perform “wonders” (Matt.24:24).  The word “wonders” is the Greek word teras which refers to  “something so strange (in the heavens) as to cause it to be watched or observed. {9}  That is the same word the used by the Apostle Peter when quoting a prophecy from Joel: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke (Acts 2:19).
I am of the opinion that the signs in the heavens coupled with the power of spiritual deception are what we refer to today as UFOs and aliens. The prophet Joel referred to a people God calls “his army” (Joel 2:11) and “a great and strong people.” (Joel 2: 2). Joel says that there has never been a people like this and there shall never be a people like this again “to many generations.”  This refers to the demonic locusts unleashed in the book of Revelation chapter nine. And that verse points to an alien invasion of our planet that will be unprecedented, and it also points as well to the unveiling of the Beast from the abyss who is the final Antichrist of the last days.
To be continued….
If you would like to know more about the alien delusion of the last days and the ascendancy of the Antichrist then I recommend my book, Alien Antichrist: The Terrifying Truth about Aliens and UFOs, Antichrist, and the End of Days. You can get the book from Amazon by clicking the link on the right side of the page near the top. You can also get the book at Barnes and Noble and at other bookstores that offer print on demand books.
The book lays out the whole scenario for you. I start at the beginning as I explain who the aliens are and how they have impacted humanity since the beginning of time. Then I demonstrate what will happen once Satan and his cohorts are cast out of the heavens as revealed in Revelation chapter 12. I also explain what the spirit of antichrist is and how it operates in the world. Using the biblical texts I also reveal who the Antichrist actually is (his identity is in your Bible), and how he will impact the world as he turns the current New World Order into a satanic empire that the Bible calls Babylon the Great.

EBOLA NEWS
The city of New York is in a panic as it has been reported that a doctor who recently returned from Guinea has been stricken with the Ebola virus.
The Governors of both New York and New Jersey have put new restrictions on those entering the country from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Lots of crying going on about “rights.”
If President Obama had put quarantine rules in place months ago as he should have we would not be facing this crisis in the United States. Unfortunately, we have weak leadership more interested in big White House dinners and the game of golf. Gotta have priorities I guess.

BAPTISM FOR ALIENS? By Jeff Wingo

Recently Pope Francis stated in a homily that he would baptize aliens if they asked him to. {1}  That was back in May 2014. However, just the other day the “Popes astronomer”, Jesuit brother Guy Consolmagno, reaffirmed what the Pope said regarding alien baptism adding, “only if they asked.” {2}

Earlier this year the Vatican Observatory in Arizona hosted a conference with nearly 200 scientists to explore the possibilities of finding alien life in the universe. {3}

Adding to all of this NASA claims that within 20 years they will find alien life on other worlds according to an article on their website titled, “Finding Life Beyond Earth is Within Reach.” {4}

What I believe we are seeing here is soft alien disclosure. Isn’t it interesting that two unrelated entities, the Vatican and NASA, are both saying nearly the same thing, that alien life does exist, and that it is ok to believe in aliens?

The Vatican, through its official astronomer seems to be planting the idea that the Pope (or his representative) will one day in the future baptize an alien life form. In fact,  Fr. José Gabriel Funes, Director of the Vatican Observatory located at Castelgandolfo Italy near the summer residence of the Pope, says that there is no contradiction between the Catholic faith and believing in aliens. {5}

“I think there isn’t (a contradiction). Just as there is a multiplicity of creatures over the earth, so there could be other beings, even intelligent (beings), created by God. This is not in contradiction with our faith, because we cannot establish limits to God’s creative freedom. To say it with St. Francis, if we can consider some earthly creatures as ‘brothers’ or ‘sisters’, why could we not speak of a ‘brother alien’? He would also belong to the creation.” (Fr. José Gabriel Funes, Director of the Vatican Observatory). {6} 

Tying all of this together, it seems to be clear that both NASA and the Vatican are preparing Catholics, and indeed, all people of religious faith, to face the inevitable: That aliens exist, and that one day soon we will make contact.

I encourage you to research all of this for yourself. A very strong spiritual deception is looming on the horizon. The only way to resist it will be through the Word of God, the Bible, and the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Apostle Paul informs us that God will allow this deception to affect almost every person on Earth who refuses to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ (the truth).

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie (2 Thess.2:11).

The English words “strong delusion” are the Greek words, energeia plane which means, “(the) superhuman power (of the devil) to lead (mentally) astray into (strong) error, deceit or fraud.” {7}

It’s coming folks. Everyday the news media lies, our political leaders lie, and in most cases, our churches are not telling the truth either. Tragically, it seems that we are living in a new Dark Age. The only way to avoid the deception is to pray for discernment. The Lord Jesus will lead you into His truth, in fact, He is the truth–the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6).

If you would like to learn more about the coming Great Deception, then I would encourage you to get a copy of my book, Alien Antichrist, The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days.

You can get the book at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and at other fine bookstores. The only way to spread the message that the Lord has given to me was to write the book. There, the entire study is laid out for you. All you have to do is take the time to read it to learn the truth about what may soon transpire on a massive scale on our planet. My motivation is to disseminate the information to as many people as I can before the prophetic hammer begins to fall.

The book reveals that the Antichrist is not a human being but an “alien” king who ruled the world during the days of Noah. In other words, he is a powerful fallen angel currently held in the dark inner chambers of our planet. One day the Dragon (Satan) will be cast out of the heavens and he will release this powerful demonic personality from the abyss. The Antichrist Beast will then go forth “conquering and to conquer”(Rev.6:2). The end result will be the establishment of a worldwide empire called Babylon the Great and this will lead to the Abomination of Desolation and the Great Tribulation.

CONTACTING ALIENS: THE LIES THAT MEN BELIEVE AND THE TRUTH THAT MUST BE TOLD Part 2 by Jeffrey A. Wingo

In my last post I touched briefly on the spiritual nature of the UFO phenomena.  This is important to understand because it presents the answers to a very intriguing mystery which is actually the very heart of the entire UFO enigma: Aliens as depicted in our culture do not exist, and UFOs are not intergalactic craft. They are both the result of the spiritual activity of the fallen ones.

UFOs and aliens are a spiritual phenomena used by fallen angels to psychologically and spiritually manipulate human society; and the end result of this will be a massive spiritual deception. Indeed, even Jesus Christ warned us that the end of days would be characterized by spiritual deception.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if (it were) possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Matthew 24:24

I am not a prophet, and I certainly make no claims to fully understand  the future regarding aliens and alien disclosure,  but here are some things that you may see happen in the near future when alien disclosure does take place:

Do not be surprised when you hear a “credible” news report stating that SETI, NASA, or some other organization involved with the government has officially made contact with an extraterrestrial civilization. I am of the opinion that it will happen, it’s just a matter of when it will occur.

When this story breaks you will see that Vatican astronomers (Jesuits) are heavily involved, because currently they are at the forefront of the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life.  They already see themselves as the mediators between God and man (this is a false doctrine which I will address shortly–see note 1 below), and as such they will position themselves as the mediator between aliens and humans.

Leaders from every major religion will confirm that faith in God (or a higher power) will be compatible with this new discovery. They will say such things as, “after all, every creature in the universe was created by God. The aliens are fellow creatures and Sons of God along with the rest of creation.”

The aliens will claim to be “higher beings” (as the result of spiritual and physical evolution), and indeed they may appear as beings of light. That is a major part of the deception. But the Bible has already warned us that Satan  and the other fallen angels can manipulate their appearance and appear as beings of light (or enlightened beings bringing new knowledge just as they did in the Garden–Genesis 3).

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14
These “beings of light” will teach doctrines that are contrary to the doctrines found in the Bible. In fact, because of verses such as Matthew 24:24, I am of the opinion that the aliens will possess supernatural power and they will pass it off as “superior technology.” Their power and presence will convince many that the Bible is wrong, and many will turn from the faith (the great falling away that the Apostle Paul addressed in 2 Thessalonians 2:3).
 
Because most scientists are agnostic or atheists they will be deceived by the aliens. Without the protection of the Holy Spirit and Scripture they will be especially vulnerable because they desire “knowledge” and access to new and exciting technologies. They will interpret the miraculous powers of the aliens through a materialistic, natural worldview, which discounts any possibility of a spiritual explanation.
 
Because most of the people who work in the media reject Christ and the Bible they also will be vulnerable to this deception. They will not be able to discern the true source of the preternatural abilities of the aliens.
 
Without a spiritual explanation humanity will collectively “fall” a second time for a satanic counterfeit because they long for the wrong type of knowledge and power. The Serpent will indeed reveal new secrets about the universe, and these new revelations will destroy humanity in a spiritual deluge of epic proportions.
 
When alien disclosure does happen that should be a key indication to Christians that something of a deep spiritual nature is taking place. For it will reveal that spiritual communication with demons is no longer hidden in the shadows. Indeed, the veil between dimensional realities will be torn open and reveal a new form of life to humanity, one with great knowledge and power. 
 
Man desires knowledge and power above all things. Equipped with knowledge and power humanity will believe that they can overcome the problems that currently plague the world, and rebuild the world into a New Age utopia, without God, because many will believe that they are God (or, all collectively are God).
 
Many songs of the 1960’s carried a theme just below the surface, and that is a desire, a striving for hope and freedom that can only be found if  mankind could find a way to return to the Garden of Eden. A short line from the Woodstock song written in 1970 by Joni Mitchell says, “…and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden…”. {2}  That is the cry of the human heart, to return to a place of freedom and purity.
 
But most people want a garden of their own making, and the refuse to accept immortality on the terms that God set forth in the New Testament through His Son Jesus Christ. They want a form of immortality without God, because they have come to believe that they are God, or a god (of some type).
 
I would be willing to wager that when alien disclosure does happen, and the aliens reveal themselves to mankind, that they will tell the people of Earth what they want to hear–“you are already god, you are gods, and we are here to prepare you spiritually to enter into the galactic community.” (Note: this is a constant theme in most cults and false religious systems, even in some versions of so-called Christianity today–the little gods doctrine of the Word Faith and other cultic parts of the church).
 

The “aliens” will promise humanity knowledge, power, wealth, and especially the gift of immortality. But beware, the lies of demons come with a steep price, namely your soul, through the image of the Beast and the mark of the Beast.

 
If you are not sure of your spiritual destiny then realize that without Christ you have no hope and if you will accept the Son of God He will set you free. It’s a gift made available from God to you through His Son Jesus Christ. If you believe the Gospel, that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave on the third day, you can be saved. It’s a gift received by faith and grace alone.
 
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:9-10,13).

THE FALL OF THE DRAGON PART 3 by Jeffrey A. Wingo

Speculation has been generated for years about the Antichrist, the False Prophet, the number of the Beast, 666, and the mark of the Beast. But did you know that the answers for all of this speculation are actually in the Bible? That’s right! It has been hidden in plain sight right in your copy of the Bible!
All of this speculation has fueled a tremendous amount of conjecture and argument and one of the most amazing things about all of this is the answers are in the book. God has not left us at the mercy of the tide with important topics like these. We don’t have to worry and fret over the answers, just open your copy of the Scriptures and pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit and you can know the truth as well.
Lets continue our talk about the Dragon. In Revelation chapter 12 it tells us that the Dragon will fall from the heavens, and he will be accompanied by an untold number of fallen angels as well. Do we believe this?

“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” (Rev.12:7-9).

This is Bible prophecy, and this particular prophecy is just as sure as the prophecies that predicted the birth of Christ (Micah 5:2, Isaiah 7:14). That is why I can say with true certainty that the Dragon will fall from the heavens, just as it is written. The problem isn’t found in the prophecy, the problem is found in the church that refuses to take God at His Word.
When the Dragon and his evil cohorts are cast from the heavens what do we think is going to happen? The United States Congress isn’t going to debate the validity of the event. The United Nations are not going to cast lots on who believes the event is real and who should be held accountable (although they may try to place the blame on Israel, they always like to blame the Jews). For those in Europe, the EU isn’t going to deny the event; and on and on I could go.
The point is, I am of the opinion that this earthshaking event will be tied to an already accepted modern mythology–ALIENS! Our visitors from the heavens will be real, possess real power, and will be superior to mankind. This event will be tailor-made for the alien myth because most of the people of Earth have been mentally and emotionally conditioned to believe that aliens exist and that when they do arrive on our weary planet they will come as rescuers, dare I say it, as the SAVIORS of mankind. This event will change history, and it will affect every person on the planet in one way or another.
Make no mistake–this event will be a religious event. The reason this is so is because in our time, the 21st century, more people believe in aliens than God (1). And when millions of aliens appear in our skies, because of 70 years of cultural conditioning, most people will emotionally place this event in a religious context. It will be an earthshaking event of biblical proportions. There is just no way to get around this fact. It will be interpreted in a religious context because of the media, and the governments of the world will harness the event to their own ends. That’s why the United States government is practically mum on UFOs. I am of the opinion that they know what UFOs are. They know that UFOs exist, but the rub is they can’t control them. So when the aliens do arrive they will manipulate all information that the public will receive, and that’s where the Vatican comes in. They also know what they are, and they have been positioning themselves to be at the forefront of alien disclosure for years. The Vatican will assume a leadership role when real alien disclosure does take place.
I will have more to say on this but in the meantime if you would like to study the alien issue (from a biblical perspective) more in-depth then I would highly recommend that you get a copy of my new book, Alien Antichrist: The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days. Just click on the link on the right side of the page. The link will take you to Amazon.com where you may purchase a copy for yourself. You can also get the book from Barnes and Noble and at other fine bookstore.
