Unidentified and Highly Mysterious

UAPs—unidentified aerial phenomena—formerly known as UFOs, have garnered much publicity the past few weeks. The Chinese “spy” ballon which first appeared over the Aleutian Island Chain, then crossed mainland Alaska and dipped down over many continental US states was shot down by the military off the coast of South Carolina. The Chinese government stated it was launched to carry out meteorological research. This explanation fell short of satisfying US authorities in view of its advanced spying capabilities over our country’s mainland.

The term UFO calls to mind extra-terrestrial beings or aliens from outer space. The more novel and modern term—UAP—reminds readers of unusual events in our skies. It is a more inclusive and general term, but it could also refer to mysterious unidentified objects or conscious beings sailing in the skies above us. Our challenge is to identify the origin and purpose of these phenomena. Living with uncertainty on a subject of such import is unsettling in our present day.

In the last few weeks government officials and scientists have discussed possible explanations for these unidentified and mysterious phenomena. Their explanations generally fall within several possibilities: (1) they are produced by foreign intelligence gathering authorities, or (2) are airborne trash, clutter, or drones, or (3) they are produced by extraterrestrial visitors. Our government officials have generally discounted category (3), but citizens still search for answers. Many people feel the government knows more than they tell. If this is true, our citizens have good reason for concern. Why are foreign entities spying on our country? What is the purpose of the plentiful drones? Will they use the intelligence they collect for nefarious purposes? 

Beliefs have changed concerning alien creatures or spacecraft. The possibility that aliens exist from distant locations in outer space is frightening, especially if the aliens may be focused on conquering or subjugating Planet Earth’s human population. A recent Gallup poll finds that in 2021, 41% of our citizens believe UAPs involve alien spacecraft—up from just 33% in 2019. This is a startling short-term change. 

Heightened uncertainty pervades the topic of UAPs since late January 2023. The Chinese “meteorological research balloon” incident has been followed by three additional objects over northern Alaska, the Canadian Yukon, and Lake Huron. These were possibly privately owned balloons shot down by the US military.

There has been a recent uptick in UAP sightings ever since the official government hearings in 2021 and 2022. This may have occurred because of the diminished stigma surrounding UAP reporting. It is certain that the reports of the Chinese spy balloon and the recent shoot-downs of smaller balloons have piqued public interest in the captivating reality of UAPs.

There is no scientific explanation for unidentified objects and their unique behavior. No credible physical explanations have been forthcoming for a large number of unexplained sightings. Their origin and purpose is hidden in mystery. 

Perhaps government authorities are misdirected in searching for an ordinary cause and effect physical explanation for UAPs. Government scientists have mostly ruled out extraterrestrial visitors as a viable possibility for UAP phenomena, but scientists may also rule out the occult or the supernatural as an option. It may be a mistake to rule out the occult, the paranormal, or even a Satanic dimension of the UAP phenomenon. Their aversion to citing anyspiritual entities to explain either positive or negative events in our physical sphere is a possible reason.

We cite excerpts from our previous 12-28-2019 post: Dr. Hugh Ross of Reasons to Believe, stated, “…Believers in extra dimensions stand on firm scientific ground…a scientifically credible possibility exists that Residual UFOs (RUFOs) come from beyond the four familiar dimensions of our present universe…If one takes the extra dimensional hypothesis to mean that entities could come into the universe from a spiritual realm one can see a remarkable correspondence between science and scripture. The Bible describes a Creator who is beyond matter, energy, and the space-time dimensions of the universe. It also describes spirit beings who are able to enter the universe and exhibit physical effects…A close examination of RUFOs shows that they are consistent with the Bible’s description of demons. The RUFOs appear to be alive and acting in an intelligent way with malevolent intentions.”

Our citation of demons in connection with UAPs may be surprising. The topic should not come as a surprise as we contemplate today’s world. If we acknowledge the dire condition of our present world—political turmoil, war, rumors of war, and moral degradation—we may identify both causes and effects. Scripture provides reasons for our present condition. The UAP phenomena may not possess an ordinary physical dimension; rather, we must search for a spiritual/theological dimension.

Scripture refers to the “ruler of this world” in reference to Satan. The Gospel of John (John 12:31) states the ruler of this world will be cast out in the future. Two chapters later (John 14:30) Jesus says the ruler of this world “is coming.” In John 16:11 the ruler of this world “is judged.” In I Peter 5:8 the devil is personified as a roaring lion prowling about, seeking whom he may devour. This is a commentary on malevolent activities of demonic beings. Satan is described as the “prince of the power of the air” in Ephesians 2:2. Christians should take comfort that God is more powerful than Satan. We need not fear our spiritual adversary.
