Some conspiracy theorists seem to pose this question: Can the "world government" stage a fake "alien contact/landing" scenario? (or a fake "alien invasion" scenario?)
If the secret government were to stage such a fake, "extraterrestrial" type of event, it would definitely be beneficial to them if there remains an adamant element of society who have always believed in"UFOs" and "aliens").
In any case, Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians seem to believe that somehow the Anti-Christ will come up with a brilliant, convincing explanation for the "Rapture" event and that somehow (supernaturally) the world will have a sigh of relief by his explanation.
By the way, here is an interesting item regarding the concept of the"Rapture":
PROJECT BLUE BEAM and the coming GRAND DECEPTION:
5) THE BEGINNING OF THE 7-YEAR TRIBULATION PERIOD:
According to these fundamentalists, this event will be the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation Period (i.e., the "New World Order" of the Anti-Christ, the first half of which will be relatively and deceptively peaceful, and the second half of which will be an iron-fisted rule of the Anti-Christ, who will declare himself to be God at mid-point).
6) THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON:
Towards the end of the 7th year, nations such as Red China (and the rest of the "Kings of the East") will challenge the dictatorship of Anti-Christ's Europe-based New World Order and will begin to cross the Euphrates and make a move towards the valley of Megiddo.
This battle, the battle of Armageddon, will be the final global battle.
During the climax of this battle, celestial forces led by Jesus Christ (and accompanied by those who had been "raptured") will descend andwill destroy all earthly forces.
7) A THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST FROM ISRAEL:
Jesus Christ, according to these believers, will rule from Israel for a 1,000 years.
This is the Millenial Kingdom.
8) FINAL, MINOR REBLLION:
At the end of the 1000 years, there will be a minor rebellion by the descendants of those who may have survived the Armageddon and continued to procreate, thus having physical bodies.
That minor rebellion will be crushed by God, these believers say.
9) THE FINAL JUDGMENT
This is the gist of the events to occur in the near future, according to many of the so-called Fundamentalist, Dispensationalist, Evangelical, Pre-Millenial, Pre-Tribulationist Christians.
Is this all wild, "science fiction"? Maybe.
But again, no one knows.
Does it hurt to believe in this "unbelievable" scenario?
These Evangelical Christians seem to say that it won't hurt at all to believe that such scenarios could come true.
They say that they have nothing to lose by believing in it even if it doesn't come true, but everything to gain if it indeed takes place, if one is a believer.
UFO researcher, Sean Casteel, recently wrote a book called: SIGNS AND WONDERS OF THE SECOND COMING, Will He arrive on a cloud of glory? Inside of a UFO? Surrounded by angels? or as a hologram seen all over the world?
Casteel quotes from a Top Priority U.S. Military Report which claims that "Apocalyptic Christians" and the Second Coming of the Christ could pose a serious threat to world peace.
He says:(QUOTE):According to the Prophetic News Service and other major Christian media, the U.S. military recently commissioned a monograph for the U.S. Army School of Advanced Military Studies as authored by Maj.Brian L. Stuckert.
This report - in no uncertain terms - declares that "those who believe in 'Dispensational Millenialism', the literal return of Jesus Christ to this earth to reign on His throne for 1,000 years, to be the enemies of America and totally unsuitable to serve in a leadership capacity.
"Maj. Stuckert actually goes further with his ideas", states Prophetic News, "when he clearly says that those with these kinds of religious beliefs, spawned by a literal interpretation of the Scriptures, are an actual danger to world peace, and will, in fact, if allowed to influence 'public policy', bring America to total defeat in the world arena".
