In our first article about the ABC series “V” we went through many details to explain how the show promotes the idea of alien beings coming to Earth as the “saviors” of the planet and how this idea, which is also promoted by many figures in the New Age Movement, is one of that is very spiritually dangerous and can lead to much confusion in the church. As stated before, I do not believe in extra-terrestrial beings but the Bible is clear that fallen angelic and demonic beings do exist, have interacted with humanity in the past and will do so again in the future. Now in its second season, some of this blog’s initial predictions about the show have come to pass.
The Sons of God and the Daughters of Men
In our intial article we referenced the Nephilim, the hybrid offspring of the fallen angels of Genesis 6, who came to Earth, took human women as wives and had children with them:
Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
This illicit union by rebellious angels led to the global flood in which Noah and his family were spared on the ark. And as predicted, not only was this an important plot point on the V series, it has now been revealed in season 2 that this is the ultimate agenda of the alien Visitors on the show. Their leader, Anna, has offered a “gift” to humanity in the form of new cities which the aliens and humans can build together for peaceful coexistence. But the this gift is merely a ruse to sneak in alien “breeding vessels” into the Earth’s atmosphere and over these cities. Once the ships have landed, human will be taken aboard for breeding with male aliens. Again, we see the sins of Genesis chapter 6 being played out in pop culture. It is at this point we must remember the Biblical prophecy regarding this happening in the end-times:
The End Time Kingdom – Mingled With the Seed of Men?
The Book of Daniel tells us that rulers in the end-time Kingdom will 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. The phrase “seed of men” is a direct reference to reproduction and DNA. The idea that something other than man will try to join itself to man.
In ancient times, angels, false gods and titans were worshiped and venerated. They attempted to replace the true God of the Bible and “be like the most High” (Isaiah 14). This is covered more in detail in the Nephilim article. And Jesus warned: Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. If there is an “alien phenomenon” today it is certainly spiritual beings deceiving mankind, not extra-terrestrial life.
The Bible also informs us in the book of Revelation, of two instances when fallen angelic beings return to Earth:
Revelation 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 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.. 7 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. 8And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 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.
As was explained in the Nephilim article, the bottomless pit is where the Bible instructs us that the angels who sinned with human women were imprisoned:
Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
Both passages reference angels who were imprisoned for fornication-related sins in the time of Noah. The angels who participated in the “marriage” with women were sentenced by God to be imprisoned in the bottomless pit until the time “judgment of the great day.” It is this author’s belief this time period is the “Day of The Lord”, the end times outpouring of God’s wrath on the unbelieving world which commences at the opening of the 6th seal of Revelation Chapter 6. Also interesting to note is that in the supernatural appearance of these beings, their faces are like those of human men (also of note is that the King of the bottomless pit is Appolyon, which is just another name for the ancient god Apollo).
The second instance of fallen angelic beings returning to Earth occurs in Revelation Chapter 12:
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9And 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. …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.
During the midst of the final years of Earth or the Great Tribulation, fallen angelic beings will be banished from Heaven and sent to Earth. And this event is so distressing that a voice in Heaven cries “woe” for all the people living on the Earth at that time. Just as in the days of Noah when the floods of God’s judgment came from rain from the skies and water bursting from the ground, we see that the end times judgment in the form of evil angelic beings will come from both the sky and the bottomless pit. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be
The Vatican Joins with The Visitors
Another point made in our first “V” article regarded their reference to the Vatican’s real life statements regarding alien life. Lo and behold, in Season 2, not only do the aliens visit the Vatican, they make a pact to have the Vatican support the aliens in their statements and sermons. This allegiance (done in an episode called “Unholy Alliance”) is made after Anna demonstrates a “blue energy” alien power that she threatens will cause the people of the world to view her technology as “miracles.” The show continually makes subtle references to Anna being a “god” in the eyes of the people (and some not so subtle, as they had people actually worshiping her in the first season).
Note in this promo video, the V agenda being played out:
The religious and spiritual overtones here are quite obvious. Note at the :18 second mark that the alien leader Anna, is positioned in front of a statue of the Virgin Mary. Like in the image at the top of this article, where she in the “Virgin with child” pose, she is being presented as a juxtaposition. Discerning Christians will note that while Mary was the birth mother of Jesus and a believer, she is not to be worshiped or venerated in any special position.
Some other interesting plot points from Season 2:
The aliens caused a “Red rain” to fall from the sky all over the Earth in the season premier. While this liquid was to truly help with human female fertility for “breeding” the aliens explained that it would solve the problems of global warming and human pollution. This was exactly what New Age guru and promoter of Maitreya, Benjamin Creme said about alien life forms as quoted in our initial article.
In addition to the Catholic Church, the alien leader Anna is seeking to bring all religions of the world into alliance with the Visitors. Revelation 13 informs us that all people will worship the end-times antichrist. Could it be that the end time religion will start heading towards an ecumenical, “all paths lead to Heaven” religion? Events of today certainly seem to indicate that.
Tyler, the son of the lead character and alien Resistance leader Erica, is discovered to have DNA that is missing certain components. To no surprise, the aliens on “V” are obsessed with human genetics and have secretly been experimenting on human women for reproductive purposes for decades. Tyler was once such subject and his DNA was altered for something else to be added to it, as the show explains. He is now a central figure as the alien Queen plans to have Tyler “mate” with her own daughter, who will soon be queen. In the original pilot episode of the series, Tyler is even offered an apple by the his future alien breeding partner, a clear allusion to the “forbidden fruit” of the Garden of Eden and the temptation of the serpent, Satan.
Why is this being done?
I have received some very good feedback to this article and to my radio show on the same subject and I wanted to address several issues:
1) How can TV affect what people think — The website Vigilant Citizen (an excellent site that I visit frequently) has a thorough, well-researched article on the effects of the Mass Media on the human psyche. By citing many experts in the fields of brain study, psychology as well as public relations, it details how motion pictures and television can influence the human subconscious and guide future thinking and decisions by the individual recipients. I would definitely recommend reading this piece.
We must also remember that the Bible speaks of the spiritual influences that can affect us unwittingly. Ephesians 2 states:
Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
This passage is drawing a contrast between born again believers who have been “quickened” or given eternal life through Jesus Christ, with unsaved people who are still spiritually “dead” in their sins. In verse 2 identifies that the “course of the world” is guided by the “prince of the power of the air.” This is another name for Satan. And the verses states that his spirit is working in the hearts of unsaved people. There are spirits of evil at work against us all the time. This is why Paul also states in the same book:
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The enemies of Christians and the non-believer alike are spiritual powers and we cannot underestimate their ability to influence us. And the mass media provides a platform to expose the human mind to sin, occult imagery and all manner of ungodly behavior. This is why the Bible repeatedly warns us to be in control of our minds (Galatians 5:22) and to control whatever is influencing us (Romans 6:12-13, 1 Corinthians 6:9-12; James 4:6-7).
2. Do TV and movie directors know all about these ancient Biblical concepts like Nephilim and fallen angels?
— While it may seem unlikely that hollywood writers are taking these ideas into account when drafting their scripts, the similarities and parallels to Bible prophecy are difficult to ignore. I do not believe writers are all sitting together and making deals about these ideas, but there is no accounting for where one gets their inspiration from. To see another example, here is an ad for the Axe men’s body spray:
I believe the ideas and imagery in the ad speaks for itself.
While we do not know when the Great Tribulation will begin or what role “alien life” will play in the future, we do know for certain from the Bible that fallen angelic beings are going to return to the Earth. And Jesus’ main warning to His disciples was “do not be deceived.” The end times will be marked by it, both in society and in the church itself. Will Christian be ready for the appearance of supernatural beings or beings presenting themselves as “extra-terrestrials”? Are pastors preaching about Bible prophecy on these topics so that believers can be confident that the Bible does indeed have answers for this and so that they can share this knowledge with others? It is definitely time that we start doing so.
