Similarities Between UFO Encounters And Demonic Encounters

Rev. Daniel R. Jennings, M.A.

 

A man lies sound asleep in bed when he is suddenly awoken. He senses a presence in the room, though he cannot see anyone there. Suddenly it appears next to him, peering down at him with a horrifying look. He lies paralyzed, unable to move. The creature begins to speak to him telepathically, telling him that he has been chosen to fulfill a mission and will be given special powers to do so. Things begin to grow hazy and soon the man is unconscious. When he wakes up in the morning he has bruises and feels as if he has been sexually violated. Over time these visitations continue and he begins to develop psychic powers.

 

So, what exactly is happening here? The answer to that depends upon the time that you live in. Most people today would readily acknowledge this as a typical “alien abduction” story but what if you asked someone who lived one or two or even ten centuries ago. How would they define this? The answer may surprise you. “Alien abduction” experiences have been occurring for centuries; the only difference is that those who experienced them in the past usually recognized them as being something evil from a demonic force. It is only in modern times that large numbers of people in Christian countries have began to refer to the atypical “alien abduction” as something that is not demonic.

 

Now all this is not to say that there may be other explanations for some of the “alien abduction phenomena” that are occurring. Some can surely be explained by sleep paralysis, nightmares or other natural phenomena. But some, however, seem to be unexplainable by any natural phenomena that we are aware of and have all the trappings of a legitimate demonic encounter. The following chart was created to show just how similar a “demonic encounter” is to an “alien encounter”. On the left are recorded cases of demons appearing to people and treating them in exactly the same way that “aliens” are reported as treating people in modern times. On the right are the recorded cases of “aliens” appearing to people and shown to be treating them the exact same way that demons have treated people in the past when they appeared to them.

“For there is a man who was once a scholar, and is now believed to be a priest in the diocese of Freising, who used to say that at one time he had been bodily carried through the air by a devil, and taken to the most remote parts.” (Heinrich Kramer & James Sprenger, Malleus Maleficarum: Or, The Hammer of Witches, Part 2, Question 1, Chapter 3)

 

“At Mohlburg, Thuringia, not far from Erfurt, there was a musician, who gained his living by playing at merry-makings. This man came to the minister of his parish, and complained that he was every day assailed by the devil, who threatened to carry him off, because he had played at an unlawful marriage. The minister consoled him, prayed for him, recited to him numerous passages of Scripture, directed against the devil; and, with some other pious men, watched over the unfortunate man, day and night, fastening the doors and windows, so that he might not be carried  off. At length the musician said: ‘I feel that Satan cannot harm my soul, but he will assuredly remove my body’; and that very night, at eight o’clock, though the watch was doubled, the devil came in the shape of a furious wind, broke the windows, and carried off the musician…” (Martin Luther, Table Talk, Entry DCXXVIII)

 

“24-year-old José Antonio da Silva, an enlisted soldier, was fishing on a lagoon when suddenly he heard voices, became aware of figures moving behind him, and felt a burst of light strike his leg. He dropped his fishing rod and fell to his knees.

Two beings, about four feet tall, wearing aluminumlike suits and what appeared to be helmets, seized him and dragged him to an object sitting on a dirt road. The object was shaped like an upright cylinder and had black platforms at each end. The soldier was taken inside, where the beings put one of their 'helmets' on him...Da Silva felt the craft rise. The beings talked animatedly among themselves in a language he did not recognize. After a long period of travel, he felt a jarring that suggested their craft had landed. The soldier was then blindfolded and led to a large room, where they removed the wrap from his eyes.” (Abduction of José Antonio da Silva)*

 

 

 

 

*Some of the cases listed in the “Alien Encounter” section involved the use of hypnosis. I do not recommend or encourage the use of hypnosis under any circumstances as I fear that it has the potential to be both dangerous and misleading on both a mental and a spiritual level.

Periods Of Unconsciousness

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“Before many days had passed a messenger came to me from the Chang family, informing me that their troubles had increased, and begging me to come to their help. They told me that two women in the family had been possessed by demons for several days, and were still in a state of unconsciousness.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Appendix 1.b)

 

“The morning following the baptism of Mrs. Kwo, one of the Christians in the village informed my traveling companion, Mr. Leyenberger, and myself, that a woman living in a neighboring house, who was a spirit-medium, was then under the influence of a demon, and was improvising [poetical] verses referring to us…We were desirous of seeing this woman…Entering the house we saw her…appearance was that of a corpse; the face expressionless, and no part of the body stirred except the lips and tongue; which were giving forth utterances with the rapidity and uniformity of clockwork. Everything she said was in measured verse, and was chanted to an unvarying tune…Her daughter-in-law, at our suggestion, tried to arouse her, calling her loudly by name. But it seemed like talking to the dead…After watching her for some minutes we went to attend morning prayers with the Christians. On our return she presented exactly the same appearance, but her utterances had ceased, and she was speechless, motionless, and apparently unconscious. Her daughter-in-law told us that it was useless trying to awaken her; but that sooner or later she would come back to consciousness herself.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Chapter 3)

“After a short period of time, he was shocked to see three beings approaching the tree. Two of them seemed to be a humanoid-type of being, while the third was more robot-like. Shock became utter panic now, as the three began to shake the tree in an attempt to dislodge him. He vividly recalls a white vapor being shot from the robot's mouth; which rendered him unconscious.” (Alien Encounter in Cisco County)

 

“In the narrative, Robert said the encounter occurred Sunday, Dec. 12, 2004, when he and Anne saw a ball of light in the night sky about 7:10 p.m. He said they saw the apparition through a sliding door leading to a deck off the kitchen. He described “a huge ball of brilliant white light coming toward the house from the west,” slightly above the tops of trees…Robert said the light fully engulfed Anne, who was lifted off the deck, prompting Robert to open the sliding door with one hand and grab Anne's waist by other. He said he pulled her into the house and the shut door…During the ordeal, Anne went unconscious. When she came around, she said she remembered seeing the blue light and that Robert described it as square, but could not remember any details after that.” (Massachusetts Residents Share Details of Reported UFO Encounter)

 

“According to Moody's subsequent recollection, after being overcome by numbness on August 13, 1975, he had observed two beings approaching his car.

About six feet tall, the creatures wore skintight black clothing. After a brief scuffle with them, he was rendered unconscious. He awoke on a slab inside the craft. His limbs felt leaden and immovable. Next to him stood the alien leader.” (Abduction of Air Force Sergeant Charles L. Moody)

 

Appearing In The Form Of Humans

“At last when the dragon could not even thus overthrow Antony, but saw himself thrust out of his heart, gnashing his teeth as it is written, and as it were beside himself, he appeared to Antony like a black boy, taking a visible shape…” (Athanasius of Alexandria, Life Of Saint Antony, 6)

 

“The demons…when they cannot deceive the heart openly with foul pleasures they approach in different guise, and thenceforth shaping displays they attempt to strike fear, changing their shapes, taking the forms of women, wild beasts, creeping things, gigantic bodies, and troops of soldiers. But not even then need ye fear their deceitful displays. For they are nothing and quickly disappear, especially if a man fortify himself beforehand with faith and the sign of the cross...At another time they assume the appearance of monks and feign the speech of holy men, that by their similarity they may deceive and thus drag their victims where they will.” (Athanasius of Alexandria, Life Of Saint Antony, 23, 25)

 

“One day, by the permission of God, the devil, the enemy of all good men, knocking at the knight’s gate, in the form and dress of a pilgrim, sought hospitality in the name of St. Thomas.” (Concerning Gerard, A Knight, Whom The Devil Carried In A Moment From The Church Of St. Thomas In India To His Own Country [Caesar of Heisterbach, Dist. VIII. Cap. LIX. (Vol. II, pp. 131, ff.))

 

“Khoury told Chalker that his encounter of July 23, 1992 began at 7:30 in the morning while he was in bed. He had recently been injured at work and was taking pain medication. Earlier that morning, he had driven his wife to work, then returned home and went back to bed for a short while. Suddenly, he bolted wide awake and sat up. There were two humanoid females sitting on the bed, both entirely naked.

These two women looked human in nearly every way. They had well proportioned adult bodies. One looked somewhat Asian, with straight dark shoulder-length hair and dark eyes. The other looked perhaps Scandinavian, with light-colored (“maybe bluish”) eyes and long blond hair that fell half-way down her back. Her hair was especially notable to Peter Khoury. “I had never seen a hair style like that. It was curled something like Farrah Fawcett, but to an extreme...It just looked really exotic in a way,” he told Chalker.” (DNA Sample From Khoury Abduction Raises Big Questions)

 

“A police officer contacted British UFO experts after seeing three aliens examining a freshly made crop circle near Avebury, Wiltshire…The sergeant, who has not been named, was off-duty when he saw the figures standing in a field near Silbury Hill, and stopped his car to investigate.

However, as he approached the 'men' – all over 6ft tall with blond hair – he heard “the sound of static electricity” and the trio ran away ''faster than any man he had ever seen''.

The officer returned to his home in Marlborough, Wiltshire, and contacted paranormal experts and told them he had spotted a UFO.” (UFO Alert: Police Officer Sees Aliens at Crop Circle)

 

Communicating Mentally

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“M— S—, a peasant, at fifty-four, had, when twenty-two years of age every night for three months, an attack of violent nightmare and hallucinations of hearing…When she was between thirty and forty years of age there gradually appeared a disease occurring in paroxysms, attacks occurred every two or three days, and in the interval the patient was perfectly well. They commenced with pains in the head, loins and neck; palpitation, anxiety, great exhaustion; occasionally symptoms of globus and hysterical convulsions. She was obliged to lie in bed, became completely apathetic, could no longer connect her thoughts, and there was manifested as a mental anomaly, an internal contradiction against her own thoughts and conclusions —a constant immediate opposition against all which she thought and did. An inward voice which she, however, did not hear in her ear, opposed everything which she herself would do (for example, even against the mere lying in bed, which her condition renders necessary), especially, however, against all elevation of the sentiments—praying, etc. The voice is always wicked when the patient would do good, and sometimes calls to her, but without being heard externally: “Take a knife and kill yourself.” The patient, who is a clever woman, says on this subject, that she almost believes that a strange being, a demon, is within her, so certain is she that it is not herself who does this.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Chapter 9)

 

“Both of them were well-known as sincere and consistent Christians until their deaths. They declared that for many years, before they became Christians, they submitted to, and obeyed the behests of the possessing demons from necessity, being constrained and intimidated by severe physical and mental inflictions and torments…” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Ch. 11)

 

“The demons, therefore, if they see all Christians, and monks especially, labouring cheerfully and advancing, first make an attack by temptation and place hindrances to hamper our way, to wit, evil thoughts. But we need not fear their suggestions, for by prayer, fasting, and faith in the Lord their attack immediately fails.” (Athanasius of Alexandria, Life Of Saint Antony, 23)

 

“Their eyes were also large, and extended around the side of their heads. Michael began to sense a kind of mental communication with the two beings.” (The Buff Ledge Abduction)

 

“She said she was on a road near New London when a round, silver craft landed. She said an alien walked out and invited her to his ship. He was about 5-feet, 2-inches tall and was wearing a silver suit and helmet, she said.

The ship flew through space for a short while the alien communicated with her telepathically, she said. He told her that aliens, at least the good kind, feared for humanity because of violence and greed.” (Fond du Lac Area is Hot Spot for UFO Activity)

 

“When I lifted my eyes and looked at the back fence, which is about 25 feet from where I was standing, I observed two creatures (extraterrestrials) standing close to and behind the chain-link fence looking at me…The aliens were staring at me and I was staring at them. I think that they were communicating with me telepathically because they were reading my mind when I said mentally, “I'm going to wake up my husband, Nelson.”“ (A Close Encounter with Alien Beings-Eyewitness Account)

 

“The leader asked Moody telepathically if he was prepared to behave peacefully. When Moody agreed to do so, the leader applied a rodlike device to his back which relieved the paralysis.” (Abduction of Air Force Sergeant Charles L. Moody)

Levitation

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“Before my eyes a young lad was brought to him possessed by an evil spirit. So, putting one hand on his head and the other on his heart, he prayed so much that he made him hang in mid­air.” (Palladius, The Lausiac History, 27:22)

 

“Julia also exhibited enormous strength. Despite the religious sisters and three others holding her down with all their might, they struggled to restrain her. Remarkably, for about 30 minutes, she actually levitated about half a foot in the air.” (Richard E. Gallagher, Among The Many Counterfeits A Case Of Demon Possession, New Oxford Review, March 2008)

 

“There lives another priest in Oberdorf, a town near Landshut, who was at that time a friend of that one of us, who saw with his own eyes such a transportation, and tells how the man was borne on high with arms stretched out, shouting but not whimpering. And the cause, as he tells it, was as follows. A number of scholars had met together to drink beer, and they all agreed that the one who fetched the beer should not have to pay anything. And so one of them was going to fetch the beer, and on opening the door saw a thick cloud before the grunsel, and returning in terror told his companions why he would not go for the drink. Then that one of them who was carried away said angrily: “Even if the devil were there, I shall fetch the drink.” And, going out, he was carried through the air in the sight of all the others.” (Heinrich Kramer & James Sprenger, Malleus Maleficarum: Or, The Hammer of Witches, Part 2, Questions 1, Chapter 3)

“Hickson, frozen in fear and unbelief, was grabbed by two of these creatures, and the third one took Parker, who fainted from fright. Hickson would later relate that when the beings put their arms under his body to support him, he felt numb all over. He was then floated into a brightly-lit room inside of the UFO. Inside this room, he floated, along with an eye-like device which examined him all over.

After his ordeal, Hickson was left floating, while the beings left the room, probably to examine Parker. Approximately 20 minutes after the ordeal had begun, it was over, and Hickson was floated back outside of the strange craft. Parker was crying, and praying on the ground. Only a moment or two later, the craft rose straight up into the air and disappeared.” (The 1973 Pascagoula, Mississippi Abduction)

 

“I then put my knee on the lowest part of the UFO craft, and crawled the circumference of the UFO. When I reached the opposite part of the craft, there was a small dark hole. I looked inside and saw the most beautiful lights one could imagine…I awoke walking back to the housing apartments, as I entered my apartment my mother was combing my sister's hair. I was disoriented, as I did not recognize my own sister, and asked my mother if she was Chinese, as in elongated eyes…My mother became agitated with me and sent me to my room, and I, at this time, sat down in my red sofa chair, when all of a sudden I levitated upward to the ceiling.” (UFO and Alien Encounters)

 

“A man and woman in Billerica claim their lives have been altered since a huge, luminous object they said appeared over their porch one winter evening, levitating the woman, blistering the man's hand, and leaving white, powdery material that quickly disappeared afterward.” (Massachusetts Residents Share Details of Reported UFO Encounter)

 

Going Into Trances

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“She frequently spoke as if she was another person, saying to her father, “This girl is not thine, but mine. I have got possession of her, and I will keep her;” with many expressions of the same kind. She often seemed to be in a trance, and said she saw many visions; sometimes of heaven or hell, or judgment; sometimes of things which she said would shortly come to pass.” (John Wesley, Journal of John Wesley, June 5, 1753)

 

“Their next conscious thoughts would be that of staring at the object again from the dock. The sky was now totally black, and Michael wondered how long he had been in this one spot. Looking at Janet, he could see that she was in a trancelike state; drowsy and disoriented.” (The Buff Ledge Abduction)

Endowing With Special Powers

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“Two cases similar to the above have occurred in connection with our mission station in Chimi, Shan-tung, China. They were described to me in detail by a theological student whose home was in that neighborhood, and who was familiarly acquainted with the subjects of both cases, one being a near relative. Both of them were well-known as sincere and consistent Christians until their deaths. They declared that for many years, before they became Christians, they submitted to, and obeyed the behests of the possessing demons from necessity, being constrained and intimidated by severe physical and mental inflictions and torments; that they believed that the actions purporting to be performed by the demons through them as their agents or instruments were in fact so performed; that they had no means to rid themselves of the dominion of the demons until they heard of Christianity. One of these persons, an aunt of the theological student, is said to have had, when in the abnormal state, remarkable clairvoyant powers.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Chapter 11)

 

The demon often bade us not to be afraid of it, saying it would not injure us, but that, on the contrary, it would help us in various ways; that it would instruct me in the healing art, so that people would flock to me to be cured of their diseases. This proved to be true; and soon from my own village the people came bringing their children to be healed by the aid of the demon…He also frequently indicated his plan for my future life and employment. It was that through his assistance I should grow more and more skilled in healing diseases. The people would soon be willing to make a return for my services. In time of harvest I should go about from family to family getting contributions of grain, and these contributions as they accumulated should be applied to the support of the neighboring temple.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Ch. 2)

 

“Rodwell says that after being involved with over 1,000 “experiencers” (alien abductees) nothing had prepared her for what she discovered. “My clients include both adults and children who exhibit transformative changes such as telepathy, clairvoyance and healing as they become more spiritually aware and begin to operate on a multi-dimensional band of reality”, says Rodwell.” (Some Children Demonstrate Unusual Abilities After ET Encounters)

 

“She told me the odd activity started about age 6. She recalls strange people being around her and being away from home but was never sure if she was dreaming the events or remembering them. She would have these encounters at all different times…This continued until she was 12. At that point she knew something was wrong…By the time she was a teen this woman realized she was different from other kids. She was much smarter then the average kids her age and was developing psychic abilities that were very strong and very frightening to her.

She could look at someone she did not know and understand immediately things about them. She would know their names, where they lived, what they were thinking and most of all if they were a good or bad person. She could tell her friends what was going to happen to them weeks before the events occurred. Her differences were separating her from friends and family and she was becoming withdrawn and odder by the day.” (The Abductee)

Becoming A Channel Or Mouth-Piece For The Entity

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“The spirit came at intervals, sometimes every few days, and sometimes after a period of a month or more. At these times I felt a fluttering of the heart, and a sense of fear and inability to control myself, and was obliged to sit or lie down. I would tell my wife when these symptoms came on, and she would run for a neighboring woman less timid than herself, and they two burned incense to the demon in my stead, and received its directions, which they afterward communicated to me, for though spoken by my lips I had been entirely unconscious of them.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Ch. 2)

 

“We would get psychic messages from extra-terrestrials and they would channel themselves through someone's body. They would say they were sending 'love, healing and light to all mankind'.” (Alien Doctors Treated My Cystisis)

Physical Suffering

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“Mrs. Ku then burned incense, and prayed to the demon Tse-hwa…From this place I went to the village where Mrs. Sie lives…The next morning Mrs. Ku came in with one cheek swollen and red. The ‘familiar’ Tse-hwa (so she said) had beaten her the previous evening...” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Appendix 1.a)

 

“The next day or two she remained in bed, and on Saturday night following she again had a dream. The evil spirit seemed to seize her by the neck, commanding her to leave Foochow at once, and return to her home, or it would kill her. However instead of obeying she ran by herself Sunday morning to the church, and while there the pain which she had been feeling all the morning in her neck left her, and she experienced a strangely happy sensation; and since that day she has had no return of those attacks which she had been subject to continually for three years previously, and to obtain a cure for which she, poor woman, had presented many costly offerings to the idols.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Ch. 7)

“He woke up alone near the town of Vitoria, about 200 miles from where he had been fishing. He was dehydrated and hungry, but drank from a stream and was able to catch some fish as he still had his rod with him.

Only his identity card, which the aliens had examined, had disappeared. He had a swollen knee where the ray had struck him and three open wounds on his neck where the helmet had rubbed against his skin. He had been away four and a half days.” (Abduction of José Antonio da Silva)

 

“The creature smelled like nobody's business. It had a strange smell, a throat-tightening, chemical smell, which smelled like rotten eggs, and also like hot copper [sulphur-like], a very strong smell. And the creature saw me looking at it, and it looked down at me and, all of a sudden, I felt a terrible, awful pain on my left thigh, as if a sword had been driven into my left thigh. I screamed in pain, horrible, calling out for my mother, and the creature placed it's hand over my mouth. You know, sir, it was like-if you want to know how that felt, please sir, take the leg of a chicken, a live chicken, and place it against your lips. That was how the creature's hand felt upon my mouth.” (Famous African Elder Recalls Extraterrestrial Abduction)

 

“Antonio was subsequently ditched from the craft by the helmeted beings…He arrived [home] at five o’clock in the morning. He was very pale and trembling. I saw that he had two bruise marks on his chin. I gave him some very strong coffee to drink, but then he vomited a yellowish substance. He didn’t want to eat the hen I’d cooked for him. Then he told me what had happened.” (Antonio Villas Boas: Total Abduction)

 

Raping/Sexually Molesting

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“A friend of mine who was a missionary in China reported similar things among the Chinese. We have here a problem well known in the history of missions, that of fox-possession. Girls who are by day perfectly normal psychologically, and go about their work quite regularly, are at night sexually plagued by apparitions. Figures appear with the head of a fox. As soon as the figure draws near, the fox-head changes into the handsome face of a man. These girls suffer dreadfully from these nocturnal visitations. It is worthy of note that girls who turn to Christ are delivered of this. Christian Chinese girls are not subject to this affliction. (Kurt Koch, Christian Counseling and Occultism, 2:2.h,  Ex. 85)

“I saw, he writes, and heard the confession of a virgin in a religious habit, who said at first that she had never been a consenting party to fornication, but at the same time have been known [sexually] in this way. This I could not believe, but narrowly charged and exhorted her, with the most solemn adjurations, to speak the truth on peril of her very soul. At last, weeping bitterly, she acknowledged that she had been corrupted rather in mind than in body; and that though she had afterwards grieved almost to death, and had daily confessed with tears, yet by no device or study or art could she be delivered from an Incubus devil, nor yet by the sign of the Cross, nor by Holy Water, which are specially ordained for the expulsion of devils, nor even by the Sacrament of the Body of Our Lord, which even the Angels fear. But at last after many years of prayer and fasting she was delivered.” (Heinrich Kramer & James Sprenger, Malleus Maleficarum: Or, The Hammer of Witches, Part 2, Question 2, Chapter 1)

“And the devil, unhappy wight, one night even took upon him the shape of a woman and imitated all her acts simply to beguile Antony. But he, his mind filled with Christ and the nobility inspired by Him, and considering the spirituality of the soul, quenched the coal of the other's deceit.” (Athanasius of Alexandria, Life Of Saint Antony, 5)

 

“I will start my story from the time of the abduction in the night, it was around 2.00 AM...In time, I began to remember more things about my abduction, like being forced to drink some kind of liquid. I also had sex with one of them, which I enjoyed very much. It seemed that he was made for me. When I missed my period, I went to the doctor, and he told me half of my eggs were missing, and I had liquid inside of me. He gave me some pills for it, and told me to come back after all the pills were gone. Finally, I dischared the liquid, but the doctor never told me what it was.” (The Abduction of Mitral Kh-foshtomi)

 

“Alone in the chamber…the frightened farmer would receive another unexpected visit: this time from a nude, white-skinned female with slanted blue eyes, high cheekbones, thin lips, straight blond hair, broad hips and heavy thighs. And this was precisely the least likely part of the abduction experience: Antonio claimed to have entered a state of progressive, uncontrollable sexual excitement that he attributed to the liquid that had been rubbed onto his flesh. He made love twice to the unknown female.” (Antonio Villas Boas: Total Abduction)

Accompanied By The Smell Of Sulfur

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“‘I told you I'd kill you! He's mine!’ The screeching voice sounded nothing like Bret's--it reverberated with a raspy, hollow sound. The August air hung hot and heavy, but I instantly felt chilled and my body began to shake. Still suspicious that he was on something, I sniffed the air. I nearly gagged on the rotten-egg smell of sulfur.

‘In the name of Jesus Christ and by the power of his blood, I command you to come out of Bret.’…Bret instantly relaxed and stared at the two young men sitting on his chest while he laid sprawled on the balcony. (James Watkins, Demons: Possession Or Obsession?)1

“Looking up to see them fly over, he was shocked to see two red, glowing, elongated objects descending from the skies. As they came ever closer, their shape was defined more as disc-shaped. As he stood mesmerized by the sight, one of the craft abruptly stopped and hovered in midair…Michalak had been wearing his protective welding glasses earlier, and now they protected his eyes from the brilliant purple lights shining through openings in the front of the craft. He could now smell something like sulfur, and hear a type of hissing sound.” (1967, The Falcon Lake Landing)

 

“As he watched it for about 5 minutes, he saw 2 figures. These figures had antennae on their helmets (heads) and they turned and looked at him. The yard light dimmed when the object hovered and he remembered that there was a sulfur smell in the air.” (UFO Saucer with Occupants Reported in Massachusetts)

 

“Two children out herding cows in Cussac in 1967 came upon a sphere hovering over a field with little black beings running around underneath. The strange creatures were sucked into the sphere headfirst, which then flew away moving in an upward spiral pattern. The frightened children ran home crying to tell their parents, who summoned the gendarmerie. The adults who returned to the scene remarked a strong odour of sulphur that lasted for days as well as burn marks on the grass five metres in diameter.” (Half of French UFOs Remain Unexplained)

 

Appearing At Night In Their Bedroom

Demonic Encounter

Alien Encounter

“The next night a spirit came, apparently in a dream, and said to me: ‘I am Wang Mu-niang, of Yuin-men san, (the name of a neighboring mountain). I have taken up abode in your house.’ It said this repeatedly. I had awakened and was conscious of the presence of the spirit. I knew it was a shie-kwei, (evil spirit), and as such I resisted it, and cursed it, saying: ‘I will have nothing to do with you.’” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Ch. 2)

 

“The next day or two she remained in bed, and on Saturday night following she again had a dream. The evil spirit seemed to seize her by the neck, commanding her to leave Foochow at once, and return to her home, or it would kill her.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Ch. 7)

 

“In many cases of possession the first symptoms occur during sleep, in dreams.” (John L. Nevius, Demon Possession And Allied Themes, Ch. 4)

“Whitley Strieber is one of the most well known UFO researchers in the area of alien abduction, and alien implants. His well known book, “Communion” is a UFO classic...In upper state New York over the 1985 Christmas holidays, Strieber was staying in his isolated cabin with his wife and son…At approximately 11:00 PM on the 26th of December, he activated the [alarm] system, and the family retired for the night. After a couple of hours, he was awakened by an unusual sound. He felt that the security of his cabin had been breached. He was soon shocked to see a creature in his bedroom.” (The Abduction of Whitley Strieber)

 

“You will have to bear with me while I tell you of an incident that took place in my life…I am perhaps 3 or 4 years old [at the time it happened]. I am in bed and the room is darkened but not entirely black. As I lay in bed I was aware of something moving around in my room. Finally I could see something small standing at the foot or my bed. It was a little creature that looked a like a monkey or a man. It was maybe a foot high or a little bigger, but not much more than that. It was very ugly. It had very big eyes and a unusually large head for it size…Outside my bedroom window I could see very odd, soft flashing lights that were high up in the air. There was no sound…The following night it came again...This little creature came one more time…I screamed, my parents came and saw the flashing lights. My dad ran out side and saw something off in the distance high in the sky.” (Eyewitness Relates Encounter with Alien Creature)

 

“The time was nearly 05:00 when an unexpected visitor appeared before her. She felt neither fear nor uncertainty. She only recalls having felt an odd sense of peace upon seeing that “body” of gelatinous material “the color of honey”.

No questions were asked at first. But she later inquired: “What do you seek here with your presence?” This is the contact experience of Violeta Ortiz Castro last Sunday (December 2nd) when an extraterrestrial entity appeared in her bedroom.” (Mexico: A Schoolteacher's Alien Encounter)

 

 

 

As the above chart shows there are at least twelve similarities between Demonic Encounters and “Alien Encounters”. I think that the experiences are so similar that one can conclude that they are in reality one and the same.

I have listed the above twelve similarities between demonic encounters and alien encounters but there is actually one more similarity between the two that needs to be discussed. Throughout history Christians have demonstrated that demons will submit to the name of Jesus but what about “aliens”?  Will they also submit to the name of Jesus?” The answer, proven by actual experiences, is YES!

 

 

Aliens Submitting To The Name Of Jesus

In 1973 a woman named Carel Luck was living in Virginia with her husband and two children. One night she awoke in her bedroom to find herself paralyzed and unable to move anything except her eyes. To the left of the bedroom she could see three figures floating into the room out of the walk in closet. Her first thought was “How did they get in there?” to which they mentally communicated to her that they had come in through a large, second story window and then floated through the wall into her closet. They then began to share that they were going to levitate her paralyzed body, ram it through the bedroom window and drop her to her death. And they wanted Carel to know that her husband was going to be blamed for the death.

Overwhelmed with terror Carel tried to scream to wake up her husband but was unable to do so—even her vocal cords were paralyzed! But then she began to pray. She tried to call out “JESUS” but nothing would come out. Once again she tried and finally she was able to say the name of “Jesus”. At the name of Jesus the strange beings disappeared into the air. Her ability to move returned and she quickly woke up her husband and told him what happened.

Time passed on and over twenty years after this event Carel was given a book on alien abduction, a topic that she did not really know much about. While reading through the book it struck her at how similar the people’s experiences were to hers. Then she saw a drawing in the book that one of the abductees had made of his alien abductors. They were the same beings that had come into her room in 1973. (The Terror That Comes In The Night)

Joe Jordan, a UFO researcher and Christian, shares how he counseled a man in his thirties who one night saw strange lights in the woods near his home which apparently startled his dogs. He got out of bed to yell at his dogs and then went back to bed when suddenly he began to experience paralysis and a grey fog entered the room. He couldn’t see anything but sensed that a definite presence had entered the room. He then felt himself begin to be lifted off of the bed and sensed that something like a probe had been inserted into his rectum. Horrified, he struggled to yell out (due to his paralysis) but was finally able to call out in some way (he is not sure if he did so mentally or vocally) “Jesus, Jesus!” When he did that there was a clear sense that his calling out to Jesus had hurt whatever it was that was holding him up in the air with the probe. He felt the probe removed from his rectum and he fell down upon the bed. As soon as he hit the bed his wife was awoken by the fall and asked him why he was jumping on the bed (The Terror That Comes In The Night).

 

 

 

Stories like the above are not uncommon. For more testimonies like this the reader is referred to Online Testimonies that Alien Abductions Stop And Can Be Terminated as a Life Pattern In the Name and Authority of Jesus Christ.

 

My Own Testimony

I have never had an “alien abduction” but I have had several times in my life where I have went to bed, fell asleep and then suddenly found myself lying in my bed, paralyzed, and aware of a demonic presence in the room. In these experiences it was very clear that the presence was demonic (in other words it was not claiming to be an alien and I assumed that it was demonic—I just had this awareness in the experiences that this entity was demonic). I remember one in particular where the demon had taken the form of a stone Mayan Calendar kind of false god and was going to crush my head. In another a demon would come and touch me on the hand in kind of a taunting way. Another time a demon was trying to choke me. In each of these cases I would be in my room, in my own bed and usually paralyzed. In most of these experiences I would always struggle to yell out the name of Jesus but, due to the paralysis, would be unable to do so. However, as I struggled to cry out I would eventually be able to finally squeeze out the name of Jesus and every time that I did so the experience would end. Now, if I did not know anything about demons or Satan I would probably assume that these experiences were “alien encounters” because that is the most common way that society defines an experience like this. There really isn’t much difference between what I have experienced and your typical “alien encounter” with the only difference being that I was able to stop it.

 

And the good news for anyone who is being troubled by demons masquerading as “aliens” is that if they will place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, repent from their sins, be baptized and lead a life that seeks Him first in all things they too can experience that same victory over “alien abductions”.
