THE STRONG DELUSION
(An investigation of Spiritual Counterfeits-Past-Present-Future)
Written by James Cunningham
An opening, shocking list of Satanic achievements (past and present) and plans (future): then a reason for the book, simply stated in in 11 Thessalonians 2.
What's Been Happening? Satan's historic foundation for a spiritual counterfeit.
A. Satan's fall
B. Fallen angels-UFO's-Mythology: How does it fit together?
C. Evolution versus the Genesis account (with comparisons to the Sumerian and Furtile Crecent writings)
D. Author's disputes about the spiritual counterfeits and foundations (a key factor in showing that dogma (based on outdated teachings) and humanistic theories (founded upon sometimes poorly proven ideas) can best be investigated by an "undogmatic" comparison to God's Word).
Emphasis will be given to the best known Christian and Secular authors: Erich Von Daniken, Chariots of the Gods?; Zecharia Sitchin, The Twelfth Planet; Peter Kolosimo, Timeless Earth; Charles Berlitz, The Bermuda Triangle, The Mystery of Atlantis; Dr. Raymond Bernard, The Hollow Earth; Barry Downing, the Bible and Flying Saucers; John Weldon and Zola Levitt, UFO'S-What on Earth is Happening.
Evidence drawn primarily from Genesis 1:28 KJV, Genesis 9:1 KJV, also Isaiah 14. The Timeless Earth, and archeological findings. Especially will the agnostic connotations of Von Daniken's book be constrasted to actual findings and the Bible.
A comparison of early religions (that are being used by scholars now) to "prove" Von Daniken's astronaut-god's theories.
The connections of these religions:
A. The Creation
B. The Flood
C. A Savior (or multi-saviors)
D. Symbols (serpent, goat, cat, lion, birds, scorpions) that are found in most religious systems and architecture-even in today's occult.
E. Architecture-the Mayans, Egyptians, and Oriental (pyramidology.)
F. Unbelievable feats-questions about ancient knowledge of levitation, travel, lighting, and laser beams.
G. Communications through the centuries.
Truths verses Truth.
The Spiritual counterfeit in ancient writings, especially with references to the universal flying god/UFO and later life. Also an evaluation of the hollow earth idea in light of scriptures. Atlantis and the flood of Noah's time will likewise be considered. This chapter will also deal with God's creating power and Satan's duplicating power. We will take a brief look at God's attributes and see if we can shed more light upon them. We will consider the Rapture and do an examination of the post belief. It is also necessary to do a comparison of some of the ideas concerning the beasts of the end time.
What's going to happen? (Conjecture)
An enlargement on all previous chapters showing the need for a strong, strong foundation upon God's Word as Christians are caught in a great spiritual confrontation.
In effect, this chapter will offer probing questions to Christians who are soon-to-be faced with unbelievable phenomenon and "historical/archaeological/scientific" findings that seem at first glance to "disprove" Biblical facts.
The "falling away," spoken of in Matthew 24:10. II Thessalonians Chap. 2, and in Revelation, will be the result of a never been seen unfolding of events staged by the Master Counterfeiter.
Mat 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Rev. 13:18 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Christians who have been taught that they will be "snatched" away before it"really gets bad" may be totally unprepared for the potent "Christ-like" deceiver and his equally potent forces.
To fully assure the reader of this Manuscript of what the truth and the outline of the Gospel are, I include the excellent teaching series by Rev. James Koehler (Fundamentals of Biblical Christianity).
This series clearly outlines the Biblical truths revealed in the word of God; that are most needed to prepare us to meet the requirements of relationship with our God.
Perhaps it would be advantageous to read this series first then proceed to the content of the Manuscript.
On the issue of UFOs, I want to make myself very clear, It is not my intention to glorify the UFO phenomena.
The message coming from this enigma is what I want people to consider.
If by some chance we may now look at the backdrop of biblical history by stating that Godly angels may have used or now use UFOs is not intended to change in any way the redemptive message of Jesus Christ.
Just because we may be now able to understand the technical means of angels past and present should not be construed as an attempt to change the plan of God in any way.
This just helps us have a point of reference to understand the working of Fallen Angels also and their influence on the cultures of the past and present generation.
With this stated lets consider more of my two part summary.
Could this be the answer to the UFO enigma? the pro and con of Angels.
In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth. Genisis: 1:1 KJV Old Testament.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word, was with God, and the Word, was God. John : 1:1 KJV New testament.
In the book of Job Chp: 38 , God reveals, angels were created before the creation of man, ( v 7 ) and the angels shouted for joy.
On the sixth day of creation God Created man..... before the creation of man there was a group of angels who rebelled against the same God who created them ,,,,, Isaiah Chp :14 : ver : 12 thru 15 describes part of what took place.
Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Isa 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
In Revelation Chp: 12 : verse : 4 : the scripture implies the number of angels that rebelled.
Rev 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
Rev 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:Angels many times in scripture are referred to as stars.After this rebellion and the creation of man, Satan deceived Eve into doubting Gods intention for her life. This is how he approached her.
Gen 3:1 Now the serpent ( Satan ) was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Gen 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Gen 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Gen 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
This set the stage for the conflict of the ages, between Lucifer ( Satan the Serpent. ) and God the creator of ALL things and spacial dimensions.
Both parties have been communicating with mankind from that point in history through religious themes,,,, learning who is telling the truth and why they manifest themselves as they do needs to be clearly understood, finding the most accurate point of reference is of the utmost importance.
Do the following biblical text demonstrate that Gods allied angels use what today we would call a UFO?
Also does this explain the means of Satanic revelation and contradictions from the heavens that UFO researchers are now experiencing?
Exo 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them on the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
Exo 13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.
Exo 14:24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,
Num. 14:14 And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for they have heard that thou LORD art among this people, that thou LORD art seen face to face, and that thy cloud standeth over them, and that thou goest before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night.
Neh 9:12 Moreover thou leddest them in the day by a cloudy pillar; and in the night by a pillar of fire, to give them light in the way wherein they should go.
Neh 9:19 Yet thou in thy manifold mercies forsookest them not in the wilderness: the pillar of the cloud departed not from them by day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to shew them light, and the way wherein they should go.
Psa 99:7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.
2Ki 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
Eze 1:4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire enfolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
Eze 1:5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
Eze 1:6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
Eze 1:7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the color of burnished brass.
Eze 1:8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.
Eze 1:9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
Eze 1:10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
Eze 1:11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.
Eze 1:12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
Eze 1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.
Eze 1:14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.
Eze 1:15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.
Eze 1:16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the color of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
Eze 1:17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
Eze 1:18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.
Eze 1:19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.
Eze 1:20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
Eze 1:21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
Eze 1:22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the color of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.
Eze 1:23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.
Eze 1:24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.
Eze 1:25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.
Eze 1:26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.
Eze 1:27 And I saw as the color of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.
Eze 1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

The current interest in UFO's may be setting us up for great deception.
