Satan’s Masterpiece

Introduction to Roy Pendleton’s talk on UFOs or Flying Saucers.

IT WAS ABOUT 1974 or 1975 that Roy Pendleton sent me his uncopyrighted manuscript which I began circulating with the help of a friend. Roy was an excellent researcher as well as a dedicated SDA Christian.

A friend invited him to attend a UFO meeting down in the Bay area, I believe, about 1958 or so, give or take a year. At this meeting he was introduced to the idea that Jesus Christ would soon return to earth by means of a UFO.

He had become somewhat bored with the meeting to the point of almost dozing off. But this startling statement made him sit straight up in his seat and really begin to listen. He continued attending meetings and thoroughly researched it out.

It must have been a few months later, sometime in 1959 or 1960, that Roy was asked to present his research and findings to an MV meeting in central California, Sacramento I believe. This led to other invitations and talks which began to be tape recorded and circulated like the leaves of autumn.

He told me over the phone about 1974 that when he arrived at the place where he was to give his talk Sabbath afternoon that there were so many cars at the church he had to park about half a mile away and was late getting to the meeting which was packed to the walls; standing room only. SDAs were “shook up,” excited and scared. Is the end really that near? Will Satan soon appear? is the Sunday law and other final events going to take place now?

These and many other questions were being asked by sincere people who felt they were not ready for the end of the world. Well, let’s face it friends, most professed Christians don’t get serious about God until some kind of crisis arises which scares them into being good.

The phrase “Sunday Law Adventists” was coined a few years ago to describe SDAs who are waiting for the Sunday law to be passed before they get serious, develop a meaningful prayer life and Bible study program and share their faith. As we see the final events unfolding, it is obvious that Satan is going to fully develop all of his other deceptions first before he brings on the Sunday law.

By that time he will already have almost everyone in the palm of his hand, especially regarding the character of God…that is, that “God Does Not Destroy.”

It is my settled conviction that unless we understand this vital and important subject we will be deceived when Satan appears as Christ and commands all to keep Sunday holy as a day of rest. All who believe in a killer god will be swept into Satan’s final delusions, including UFOs. Because I could not find this original document via the internet in any form I decided to have it scanned and put into this format so anyone can read it. This is an edited transcript someone made of his original talk. Pastor Michael F. Clute.

All Seeing Eye

 

SATAN’S MASTERPIECE – By Roy Pendleton. About 1960 near or in Sacramento, California.

To begin with, I am in dead earnest in what I have to say. ‘We are engaged in an all out war, and I hereby declare myself on the side of the forces of the God of Heaven.

Quoting from the introduction of the book the Great Controversy:

“The Great Controversy between Christ and Satan, that has been carried forward for nearly six thousand years, is soon to close; and the wicked one redoubles his efforts to defeat the work of Christ in man’s behalf, to fasten souls in his snares.” GC 518.

“The Great Controversy between good and evil will increase in intensity to the very close cf time…as the church approaches her final deliverance, Satan is to work with greater power. He comes down “having great wrath, because he kncweth that he hath but a short time’. Rev. 12:12.

He will work ‘with all power and signs and lying wonders.’ 2 Thess. 2:9. For six thousand years that master-mind that once was highest among the angels of God, has been wholly bent tc the work cf deception and ruin. And all the depths of satanic skill and subtlety acquired, all the cruelty developed, during these struggles of the ages, will be brought to bear against God’s neorle in the final con-flict.” GC Intro.

“Little by little he (Satan) has prepared the way for his master-piece of deception in the development of Spiritualism. He has not yet reached the full accomplishment of his designs: but it will be reached in the last remnant of time.” GC 561. Do we believe we are living in the last remnant of time? Our whole message to the world is based on this belief: Time is short; Jesus is coming: In every war, battles have been won, and the whole course of history changed by a knowledge of the enemrs plans supplied by spies or undercover agents of some kind. To know in advance what the enemy plans tc do is an advantage of inestimable value. Should we, who are engaged in the greatest war in the history of the universe be less vigilant in learning the secrets of the enemy? Should we not spy out the land? Should we not know the plans of the enemy, that great dragon, Satan, in advance? Can we know his deceptions before he springs them on an unsuspecting world? Here is a startling statement from the messenger of the Lord:

“Satan summons all his forces, and throws his whole power into combat. Why is it that he meets with no greater resistance? Why are the soldiers of Christ so sleepy and indifferent? Because they have so little real connection with Christ; because they are so destitute of His Spirit. They do not realize the exceeding evil and malignity of sin, and they are blinded both to the character and the power of the prince of darkness. There is little enmity against Satan and his works, because there is so great ignorance concerning his power and malice, and the vast extent of his warfare against Christ and His church. Multitudes are deluded here. They do not know that their enemy is a mighty general, who controls the mind of evil angels, and that with well matured plans and skillful movements he is warring against Christ to prevent the salvation of souls. Among professed Christians, and even among ministers cf the gospel, there is scarcely heard a reference to Satan, except perhaps an incidental mention in the pulpit.

They over look the evidences of his continual activity and success; they neglect the many warnings of his subtlety; they seem to ignore his very existence.” GC 517-8.

“Nothing disturbs Satan so much as our knowledge of his devices.” And again: “The followers of Christ know little of the plots which Satan and his hosts are forming against them.” GC 528.

Is not this warning enough? Is not this definite enough to force us into active participation in this battle? How long are we going to sleep? Are we going to wait till the enemy is upon us before we realize our danger? Let us open our eyes that we may be prepared to meet the foe with confidence in victory. “To be forewarned is to be forearmed.” Tonight I want to confess that I am a spy: I have been in the camp of the enemy, and am back to give a report of the schemes of the enemy–not only what he is planning on doing, but what he is already doing. It is a startling and amazing report, so be prepared for a few shocks. I say this in all seriousness, and not for the sake of sensationalism.

Remember this well known quotation? “The Protestants of the United States will be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of Spiritualism…” “As Spiritualism more closely imitates the nominal Christianity of the day, it has greater power to deceive and ensnare. “The line of distinction between professed Christians and the ungodly is now hardly distinguishable, church members love what the world loves, and are ready to join with them; and Satan determines to unite them in one body, and thus strengthen his cause by sweeping all into the ranks of Spiritualism. Papists, who boast of miracles as a certain sign of the true church, will be readily deceived by this wonder-working power; and Protestants, having cast away the shield of truth, will also be deluded. Papists, Protestants, and worldlings will alike accept the form of godliness without the power, and they will see in this union a grand movement for the conversion of the world, and the ushering in of the long-expected millennium. “Fearful sights of a supernatural character will soon be revealed in the heavens, in token of the power of miracle-working demons. The spirits of devils will gc forth to the kings of the earth and to the whole world to fasten them in deception, and urge them on to unite with Satan in his last struggle against the government of heaven. By these agencies, ruler and subjects will be alike deceived.” GC 624.

These quotes are all familiar to you, but I hope you listened closely, for they have a special meaning today. I wonder if you, like me, have wondered how they could possibly come to pass? What movements would be necessary to join the world together in one camp? It is so divided at the present time that union seems impossible.

It would take something quite amazing to do it–in short, just what has been prophesied–a “masterpiece”.

In every age of history Satan has deceived the world in some form on this subject. In the days of Israel, remember the witch of Ender who claimed to materialize the spirit of Samuel for King Saul. And down through the years spirit worship has taken on many forms. Black-magic, voodoo, superstitions multiplied and grew into a vast sea of error that has flooded the world. Then came the Reformation that brought a ray of hope for the revival of truth and godliness. But the enemy was prepared with another attack. Along came the rap-pings, and the table rappings, and the voices from the spirit world, in the medium of modern day Spiritualism. This was looked upon by some as trickery, and by others as an exciting new thrill, but it grew and spread through the churches by furthering the belief already present–the immortality of the soul. But times have changed in the twentieth century.

We are living in an age of skepticism, materialism, and secularism; an age of scientific formulas, of plans for trips to other worlds. In short, the Space Age. Men are not moved by rappings on the wall anymore. They have gone beyond that stage, and Satan is well aware of this. He adjusts his delusions to the times in which we live. How then is he carrying on his great masterpiece that is soon to ensnare the sleeping world?

Before you form any set opinions or prejudices on what I am about to say, I ask that you hear me out. There is strong evidence to sup-port every word.

Twelve years ago the world Was startled by news of the sudden appearances of unidentified flying objects in the heavens. They were referred to as “flying saucers” because some of them had that appearance. There were many different reports of sightings by people in several different parts of the world. It was thought that perhaps they were missiles or aircraft of some new gender belonging to Russia, or even some top-secret aircrafts being tested by our own country. But as nothing could be proved, and there were denials on all sides, people began to sneer at the whole idea, putting them down as hallucinations, or weather balloons, or tricks of nature with clouds and light. And it began to die down, only springing up occasionally in small items on the inside pages of the newspaper. But although it seemed to be a passing fad, this was only a surface appraisal; for all the time this movement was gathering momentum.

At the time of the first report of the so-called “flying saucers”, I firmly believed then to be a sign of the end of the world. For we read in Great Controversy, “Fearful sights of a supernatural character will soon be revealed in the heavens, in token of the power of miracle-working demons.” GC 623.

Years went by, and I heard little more on the subject. Then in 1959 I attended a lecture on “Flying Saucers”. I was curious to know more about this strange phenomena. The audience was composed of average family people from varied walks of life, and the speaker was an ordinary looking young man. I settled back in my chair as he began to tell of the different shapes, colors, and types of aircraft that had been sight-ed. I sat up a bit straighter as he told of the men who have actually seen and rode in these saucers: Then he made the startling remark that these objects are from ether planets, Mars, Venus, and Saturn, and that the pilots are beings from outer space: But why were they here? To prevent us from destroying ourselves with an hydrogen bomb, and to prepare us for the coming of Christ:

At this point I leaned forward in my chair. What was he saying? Of course I couldn’t go along with the idea cf beings from other planets landing here on earth. God would never permit sinless beings to come to this sin-cursed planet. But the chilling thought came to me that Satan could make it appear that it was happening. And we are told that his angels will impersonate men, and that Satan himself will personate Christ. “The connection of the visible with the invisible world, the ministration of angels of God, and the agency of evil spirits, are plainly revealed in the Scriptures, and inseparably interwoven with human history.” GC 511.

Remember the incidents in the Bible when angels appeared to Abraham, and to Lot, and to the disciples at the ascension Jesus. Is it not possible that the time is ripe for Satan’s angels to appear to deceive the world? I determined to study into this matter further. During the next months I attended lectures, and read a large quantity of literature put out by the different “space clubs” in both the United States and England. I also turned to the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy to see if this latest development was mentioned in prophecy. I want you to share in the amazing results. First let me say that this “space movement”, this “flying saucer cult”, is not, as many believe, a small group of crackpots. It is a movement of tremendous proportions, reaching its long tentacles into almost all the countries of the world.

At present there are over 5,000 Interplanetary Clubs, with 1,000 in the United States alone, and they are rapidly growing in volume and strength into one big world-wide organization. Of course my report today will of necessity be only a brief summary. Time will not permit me to go into all the details. That would take several afternoons. But my burden is to show the fulfillment of a prophecy, a fulfillment tore than any other, that to me shows the end is near. The Spirit of Prophecy writes that Satan will counterfeit, as far as possible, all that God plans to do. But most significant of all is the statement that the counterfeit will just precede the true:! So when we see the workings of Satan, we can know with surety that , God is about to begin His marvelous works. Now what is the message, what are the doctrines of these “space clubs”? And how did they arrive at their deductions? In order to bring understanding, perhaps the “how” should be explained first. There are several ways: by direct contact in saucers and their occupants by visions and trances, by spirit manifestations, and by actual recordings of the voices of these beings from other planets. I will give you one incident of the method of personal contact.

George Van Tassel has a small private airport out in the desert region some miles from Palm Springs, California. Frequently, he and his wife would spend the weekend there. One night they were in a sleeping bag out under the stars. His wife had dropped off to sleep, and he had almost done the same, when he was conscious of a tall being standing near. He was startled, and tried to awaken his wife with a furtive pinch under the covers, but she made no response. The stranger smiled and said that it would be impossible for him to awaken her, but that she was perfectly all right. Van Tassel then saw a circular shaped craft hovering over the ground a few yards beyond them, and he was invited to come closer. As he approached the craft, the man told him to go aboard for a flight. There was no ladder or stairway with which to reach the craft, but he was told to step into a beam of light that was shining down from the bottom of the ship.

When he did so, he was lifted right up into the body of the saucer. I will not at this time go into a description of the ship in detail. He was taken on a fantastic trip at amazing speeds across the United States and back. He has since taken many such flights. There is now a Space Club center out In the desert, called Giant Rock, where hundreds gather for meetings and contacts with “outer-space”. There are many others who have ridden in flying saucers. Among them is Kelvin Rowe, a bulldozer operator for the State Division of Forestry from San Jacinto. He has been contacted by”space people” and taken for flights more than 351 times.

Last July, 1959, the Amalgamated Flying Saucer Clubs of America held a convention at the big Statler-Hilton hotel in Los Angeles. Gabriel Green, the director, said at the time: “We have been told by the space people that they will make themselves known on earth during our convention. They have expressed interest in our work and said they would do this to draw attention to our gathering.” The news of the convention was printed on the front pages of the newspapers right along side an account of the sighting of unidentified objects flying over the Pacific between California and Hawaii, by three different planes.

The pilots were not flying saucer fans and did not know that there was this spacemen convention in Los Angeles. Now here is an example of the recording method of contact. A voice begins: “This is Monka of Mars speaking, through the sanction and authority of Interplanetary Parliament, based upon the Planet Saturn. The Law of God is perfect. It works perfectly, surely and fairly and without compassion, for it is too perfect to contain emotion. You must through the whole of your God-given energies work toward making your earth a better, more peaceful, happier and less ignorant place. Abide by these conditions, and, my friends, we will land among you and take you to our respective planets. Continue as you are doing and you seal your own doom, through your deviation from co-operation with the Law as given to you by people like Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and others.”

Let us now discuss some of their teachings.

Are flying saucers peculiar to our modern times? According to the space people, they have been coming to our world throughout our history. They have an elaborate and detailed account of the contacts with planet earth down through the Bible times. They believe that the Burning Bush that Moses saw was a hovering space craft. (Remember each saucer is surrounded by a halo of glowing light in different colors.) the Pillar of Cloud by day and the Pillar of Fire by night leading the children of Israel was a space craft. Elijah was taken from the earth in a flaming flying saucer!

The cloud that received Jesus at His ascension was a flying saucer, and the two men in white were beings from another planet. The star of Bethlehem was one of these great vehicles of light in which certain ones came near to Earth, so that they could carry out certain complicated metaphysical operations, the results of which was the Immaculate Conception of Jesus! Then looking into the future they quote, “And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in the clouds, with great power and glory.”

Have you ever seen a better characterization of a UFO? ‘And then shall He send His angels, and shall gather together His elect from the four winds; from the uttermost parts of the earth, to the uttermost part of heaven.’ Shall we paraphrase it a bit? ‘The great shining and powerful Mothership will appear among the clouds and the Master will dispatch his assistants in smaller crafts, and will gather from all parts of the earth those who have survived the brunt of the cataclysm and have reached temporary places of safety.’” Does this sound fantastic? To a scientist it sounds far less fantastic than the coming of Jesus on a cloud.

The question arises, why are these “space people” visiting Earth at the present time, and at such an increasing tempo? There are several reasons, amen’ which are the following:

  1. Atomic experiments on Earth and our advancement in eventual space travel and the exploration of space have alerted other inhabited planets.
  2. This is the psychological time for outer space Intelligences to make their appearance on Earth due to the first reason.
  3. The space visitors wish to assist the “remnant” on earth after the catastrophe and return the Earth to the Interplanetary Brotherhood from which it fell countless generations ago.
  4. They are fulfilling prophecy concerned with the approaching “new age” or “second coming”.
  5. They are making a metaphysical survey of Earth.
  6. Agents from Mars and Venus are sending remote controlled devices into our atmosphere to absorb the static radio-activity which is causing our trouble.

This practical action on the part of the flying saucer crews, has saved Earth from major meteorological disturbances and great earthquakes, which could have dwarfed anything yet experienced on this planet. 7. They are here to influence men to unite in a great federation of love and understanding.

These are amazing statements. And the mission of the Flying Saucer Clubs is to spread the tidings of a soon-coming King who will set up a glorious kingdom on earth and return our fallen world to the federation of planets of the universe.

Their doctrines are derived from all the religions in the world. Satan in this master plan has cleverly taken features from the Oriental beliefs, the Christian beliefs, the superstitions of the Islands of the sea, and the scientific theories of the modern world, and molded them into one tremendous movement. They are teaching that through the process of evolution, man has developed to his present state by millions of years of struggle and effort. Man is now on the cross-roads of his existence. He is at the crisis. Whatever his choice now will decide the destiny of this world.

Here is a direct quote from one of their leading spokesmen whose name is George King, who is (in 1960) one of their leading contacts from England: “Whether you are a follower of Mohammed, Buddha or Jesus, it is up to you to live the teachings of your Master. Choose a Master whose teachings seem right for you and learn, understand and live those teachings. “We are advised to beware of those teachers who try to prove that their’s is the only way which will bring success.

“Man is a Holy Spirit, living upon an earth which, because of the Divine Mind which fashioned it, is also Holy. If we accept this in every phase of its meaning we have made a vital step towards the realization of Oneness. For then we shall be prepared to live as brothers in one of the rooms of the “many mansions”. No longer will this earth of ours be a prison but a temple in which we can make loving sacrifices for one another. A Holy Temple with an ever open door, through which we can come and go at will. “When such has been brought to pass, through your conscious efforts, you will no longer be confined to this earth, but will live as befits the Cosmic Beings which you have become. The Planets will be your holiday resorts. The Mighty Sun your winter’s Mecca. You will speak a thousand tongues in a thousand different worlds. Then you will travel space in a flying saucer, and offer your wisdom to more backward peoples. “Every man and woman has the ability to so speed up their evolution that together they can become a tremendous power for good in this world. A power strong enough to outlaw war and murder forever. Everyone of you can start it now, today, by modeling your lives upon the dedicated lives of those Masters who sacrificed Planetary Heaven for your benefit. “You are not alone in your struggles—you have never been alone. Every step you take towards the Great Masters, they will take two toward you. “This is the most wonderful news of Modern times! This is the inspiring message, the personal offer, extended to each and every one of you. Coming from the depths of that great heart, the very beats of which form the rhythm of God, of that saintly Venusian we call Jesus of Nazereth. (They claim Jesus is from Venus.)

“The future of this earth is now in your hands, for tomorrow’s foundation is being built by every thought and action of today. Take your hands from the pockets of isolation and join them together in co-operation and soon such a line will be formed as to span the whole world. A line of brothers, who together will influence today’s action and thus mold tomorrow’s outcome.”

This is exactly what we find foretold in Great Controversy. Another quotation from “Thy Kingdom Come”, the magazine of the Flying Saucer Clubs “If we of the Flying Saucer movement are successful in causing a sufficient degree of public acceptance and understanding in regard to our subject, then we will not have to be concerned with the burden of proving to anyone the reality of the existence of flying saucers or of space craft from other worlds. The Space People will then take care of this matter themselves in a very spectacular way that can leave no doubt as to their reality. This is the immediate goal for which they need our cooperative effort. They cannot help us to progress further until we are willing to amalgamate, to achieve organization and unity necessary to greater effectiveness. We appeal to you, we sound ‘the call to arms’ of the ‘Army of Light’ to battle against the darkness of ignorance and lack of understanding.”

Notice the words “in a very spectacular way”. This could very well be the fulfillment of the words of prophecy, “Fearful sights of a supernatural character will soon be revealed in the heavens…” Great Controversy, page 623.

Now let us compare some “Space” teachings with the words of the Spirit of Prophecy. Space: That man has developed through millions of years, working upward to a union with the Brotherhood of Planets. S of P: “Spiritualism teaches that man is the creature of progression, that it is his destiny from his birth to progress, even to eternity, toward the Godhead.” CC 554. Space: Space People are here living among us, influencing us to prepare for the second coming of Christ.

The Apostles are on the earth now, walking among men, waiting to reveal their true indentity at the proper time. They will present the Truth to us, showing us where our Bible, due to translations, etc., is in error.

S of P: “The Apostles, as personated by these lying spirits, are made to contradict what they wrote at the dictation of the Holy Spirit when on earth. They deny the divine origin of the Bible and thus tear away the undation cf the Christian’s hcpe…tc take the place of the Word of God they hold out spiritual manifestations…” GC 557. “Satan’s agencies in human form are on the ground. Men have confederated to oppose the Lord of Hosts. These confederacies will continue until Christ shall leave His place of intercession before the mercy seat and shall put on the garments of vengeance. Satanic agencies are in every city, busily orgenizing into parties those opposed to the law cf God. Professed Saints and avowed unbelievers take their stand with these parties.” T Vol. 8 pg 42.

Space: Jesus was a son of man, a teacher and leader like Buddha and Mohammed. S of P: “The Saviour of the World is made to be no more than a man.” GC 557.

Space: Promises of a world Utopia, with, travels upward to the stars. The world united in a brotherhood of love. S of P “Satan will present elevating themes, delight the fancy, enlist the affections by portrayals of love and charity.’ GC 554. Space: Man is immortal, now encased in a body of flesh.

S of P: “Through the two great errors, the immortality of the seal and Sunday sacredness, Satan will bring the people under his deceptions.” CC Space: Reincarnation. Man is reborn back into this world in another body. Those that have passed on to the spirit world, may come back to teach the world important lessons to help us develop. The great philosophers and scientists, such as Einstein, are examples of this. Scripture: Teaches that man is dead, remaining in the prays until the resurrection. Ecless 9:5, 6, 10. John 11, the story of Lazarus whom Jesus said was “sleeping” when he explained to the disciples that Lazarus had died but that He was going to wake him up.

Space: The 144,000 mentioned in the Bible are the representatives of planets that have a special privilege and work. S of P: The 144,000 are those that are translated from this earth when Jesus comes.

Space: Do not believe those who preach calamity and disaster, and the destruction of this world. The Master is coming to set up a kingdom on earth. Scripture: Teaches that the world will pass away with a great noise and be burned up. (The outer surface of the world and the people who are not translated will destroy themselves with nuclear weapons). The righteous will be taken from the earth to Heaven, and the wicked will be destroyed. What about the Second Coming of Jesus? It will be best to quote directly from their writings to get the full picture. Space: “A new golden age is about ready to be born on the Earth. The Space People are here to help us wake up. The are the fulfillment of all ancient prophecy in that they remind us that ‘our salvation draweth nigh’. The religious leaders of the world and their churches have done practically nothing about informing their flocks of the importance of the coming of the saucers. That they tie in with prophetic statements of the Bible there is no question! Then what’s the matter with the clergy? They are men of God who are supposed to bring Truth to the hungry sheep of the Lord! But are they really men cf God? ‘By their fruits ye shall know them’ the Bible tells us. “The Bible and other sacred books have been changed until they are no longer recognizable. So, man has been enslaved by the powers cf darkness on this strange planet. But the time is fast approaching (in fact is it not here?) when men no longer look to priests and kings or scientists for authority. Man has access to the throne of God himself. He needs no one to ‘save’ him from anything. Do not listen to the ‘mouth-pieces’ of the powers of darkness: the politicians who promise you this or that for your physical existence, the priests who promise you life everlasting and eternal glory if you follow them, the scientists who promise you immortality from a testtube when you already are an immortal being! ” ‘Howbeit, in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.’ Those who would place themselves over you as your guardians are teaching you ‘the commandments of men’ and are passing them off as the ‘doctrines of God’. Wake up! The quicker we realize the truth, the quicker the job will be done and the Kingdom of Heaven established upon the earth.

Stand with your Creator and not with the forces of darkness. Here is another quote from the space people: “After thousands of years this planet has managed to produce a harvest of souls who can live in fellowship, love and peace with their fellow men. It is this ‘harvest’ or ‘remnant’ that shall inherit the ‘New Earth of the Golden Dawn.’ “I do not claim our world will be utterly destroyed by fantastic power. But that there will be great destruction locally in various parts of the earth there is no question! Yet will it not be worth it, if we awaken to a new earth, purified and cleansed of all lust, greed, and war? Is this not the great dream of all ages? “You ask, ‘ But what about the millions who will perish? Is this not a terrible loss?’ “Let us remember that life is eternal; therefore no one will actually perish, they will only leave a planet that is no longer suitable for their development. ‘Those who haven’t learned the lessons contained in the Sermon on the Mount will be reborn on other worlds where they will remain until they do learn Universal Laws and how to apply them.

The Space Intelligences do not look upon death the way we do. If we are born to live, then we must also die to live!

“Look at present world conditions. Look at the greatest storms and floods in history look at the wars and rumors of wars, look at the earthquakes in ‘divers places’, and know that salvation is nigh. Yes, there will be chaos on earth….look for many mysterious outbreaks of fires throughout the earth, and many aircraft disasters due to radiation.”

Does this all sound familiar? It should. It is almost word for word from the Spirit of Prophecy. Remember Satan knows prophecy better than you or I. Here he is predicting the very works that he is engaged in doing! But let us go on. “Fear not, for out of the tribulation ahead shall come the most beautiful age man has ever known on earth. “Do not be found asleep–watch, for no man knoweth the hour!”

(Notice how he quotes Scripture constantly? The Spirit of Prophecy says: “Satan can quote Scripture now as in the days of Christ, and he will pervert its teachings to sustain his delusions.”) “It is time that we fulfill our destiny. One came about 2,000 years ago to give man a way of life. He was murdered and his true followers persecuted. When in the time of Constantine, Christianity became very popular, it was decided by those in power, that if men wished to become Christians they would simply take over the church and permit everyone to have their religion. They would control it and mold it to fit their own ends. Reincarnation was taken out with all its implications, without which concept, life becomes a very misunderstood confusion. “Many of our pet theories and ideas will have to go out the window. Physically, mentally, and spiritually we must adapt to the new order of things.” (Now notice the organization Satan has set up.)

“The spiritual hierarchy of Earth is more or less in charge of the Progression of mankind. The hierarchy is composed of the highly-evolved masters and mentors who have reached the state where they have the ability to control matter, energy, space and time. They are much concerned with the development of the new age, of course. Actually, it is evolving under this direction.

“Each planet has a counterpart to Earth’s hierarchy. None are without their highly advanced teachers and mentors. On the other planets of this system, the attitudes of the people enable these masters to mani-fest publicly and so teach, even as did Jesus of Nazereth, Buddha, and others on this planet. Here it is the exception rather than the rule however. Because the Earth has rejected wisdom so many times, and because of the negative forces in ruling control, it has been necessary for the great teachers to go ‘underground’ to be able to accomplish their missions. ‘The Dark Forces’ have often attempted to destroy the many manuscripts and documents which contain and preserve the ancient wisdom.

Thus even the written word has been secreted through the ages in many places. One of these is the Great Pyramid of Egypt. There are many others. Soon many of these are to be found and brought forth for mankind in the new age. “Actually the spiritual hierarchy of Earth has been in contact with its counterparts on other planets for millenia, and they have worked together at many times.

The spacecraft that are appearing today are under the direction of the hierarchy of their own planets, and are working in close harmony with the masters and mystery schools of the hierarchy on Earth. Today many UFOs are seen in the areas of the earth where these schools are located–away from the ‘outer world’. Saucers have been seen to land on Mt. Shasta, where a large center was located until recently. In Tibet they have been seen, and in the jungles of Peru, where a number of schools are located. ” (These schools mentioned are modern-day schools of Spiritualism, witchcraft, yoga, and magic.) “There are many brothers from space living among us at the present time. These are individuals who have been landed on the planet from space ships.

They have specific tasks to perform in accordance with the overall plan. The influence they could have on society is obvious. (Mark this amazing revelation of Satan’s methods.) New and needed concepts can be easily injected into the cultural stream. Through children’s literature, motion pictures, TV, concepts in art, music, morals, religion, and the like, the way of life on this planet could be greatly affected. This is now going on. “Another group doing a very important job are those people referred to as ‘wanderers’.

They are individuals from other planets who have volunteered to take up Earth bodies and enter the reincarnational cycle of this Planet. They usually take on the Earth bodies at the time of the birth of the body. These individuals often do not realize their mission to Earth, their own true identity till adulthood. Many of them have been contacted by the UFOs. They are the space People’s ‘own’ so naturally they would be logical contactees. Our brothers from space are returning to their own and helping them to remember who they are and what their mission is to Earth.

They use many and varied devices to awaken and communicate. One common type of communication is a ringing in the ears. Evidently while the Space People are beaming down a set of instructions to the sub-conscious mind of an individual they use a device which causes the sensation of a hiph-pitched electronic tone signal in the ear.” This is a devilish doctrine! Many people will believe this–that they are being contacted by space people when they have a ringing in their ears.

It could drive some people mad or crazy. Others are reached through Yoga, through trance or meditation. “All over the world the ‘Baby New Age’ is in Its formative state. In every little town and city people are working along the same lines. This is the greatest proof that could be offered as to the validity of the messages that have come. This shows that a master plan is in operation. All over the earth a great army is rising up. It is an army whose conquests are in the fields of knowledge–that man might live, rather than die. Lo the great Earth makes ready to bring forth a child!”

Here is a message from Mars: “Tell every one to be prepared to sink petty differences, so that a cooperative and spiritual front may be brought into being, in order to inform all mankind that another Master will soon tread the Earth. “All men must now be informed of this coming so that consciously or unconsciously they may prepare themselves for this event. “A world platform must be firmly erected, so that this One can speak to all. “You must be prepared to travel through all lands in order to offer to the populace, centers of Spiritual Energy, from which they may draw strength to surmount the difficulties to be encountered prior to and during this coming event. Another great world teacher is coming: We have been asked to tell all men this one simple Truth.’ These centers of “Spiritual Energy” mentioned above are spreading rapidly. In England there are nine such mountains where hundreds of people climb on pilgrimages tc receive this” charge of spiritual power’.

It all began a short time ago when a man in England named George King, who was a student of Yoga and Spiritualism, was contacted by a “spaceman” calling himself Aetherius. He has written many articles dictated by this influence, and set up a world-wide organization. He has also written a new Bible for the space age: I have read it, and say with real horror that it is the most blasphemous thing I’ve ever read.

But let us have George King himself tell his amazing experiences. “I was told by the Master Aetherius to visit the small town of Bodmin in Cornwall. After two days tramping through fog and bog on the bleak moor, I was instructed to climb Brown Willy, the highest mountain in Cornwall. I climbed to the top alone. I was mentally contacted by the Intelligence from Mars.

After performing the usual occult ritual, I was instructed to stand upon a certain rock upon the top of the mountain at 2:31 P.M. precisely, Sunday, November 23, 1958. “This I did. Throwing my arms out in front of me, I faced the winter sun. Then I heard it–and froze solid–almost afraid to breathe.

Had I not known better, I should have said that the great Voice I heard then was the Voice of God: But I knew that the Supreme speaks, to we mortals only through His Emissaries.

Even so, I was transfixed–listening in awe to the voice which came from above and in front of me. “Here is the Lord’s Declaration: There will shortly come Another among you. He will stand tall among men with a shining countenance. This One will be attired in a single garment. His shoes will be soft-topped, yet not made of the skin of animals. He will approach the Earth leaders. They will ask of Him, His credentials. He will produce these. His merit will be greater than any upon the earth–greater than the combined materialistic might of all the armies. And they who heed not His words, shall be removed from the earth. ‘This rock is now Holy–and will remain so for as long as the world exists. Go ye forth and spread My Word throughout the world, so that all men of pure heart may prepare for His coming.”

Here now, is an account of George King’s actual meeting with “Jesus” on the hill Holdstone Down. “Dimly out of the corner cf my eye, I saw a bright blue sphere of light skip across the night skies. I turned to watch. It went far out over the channel, then stopped dead in its tracks. It hovered there. I turned back and continued my prayer for suffering humanity. A few minutes passed–then–He came. “Ten yards away to my right stood a Radiant Being from the bright Planet, Venus. I knew instantly that the God-man who stood silently looking down upon me was Jesus. What is more, this was no psychic vision, for He was completely physical. He was dressed from the shoulders to the ground in a robe which seemed to glow with a bluish white incandescence. His face, was to a simple man like me, so wonderful as to be beyond my limited descriptive abilities. His living eyes, clear, bright, shone with a blue flame. He was, contrary to popular belief, clean shaven with a firm chin, soft kind lips, and a well shaped nose. His skin was tanned a deep golden color. I did not see a solitary line upon His broad forehead. His long light brown hair fell to His broad straight shoulders. In His hand He held what appeared to be a short wand, about a foot long, with a large crystal in the shape of a five-pointed star. “He stood there silent, unmoving for a short time, then He slowly levelled the wand in my direction. When the wand was almost level with me some very gentle urge to extend my arms in front of me seemed to float into my mind. Reluctantly I turned away from Him and looked out over the dark hills with arms extended, fingers stiff. Out of the corner of my eye I could see the wand come level, then a great surge of vivid blue flame coursed through my body, along the arms and out of the fingertips. The whole country side seemed to be swallowed up in a whitefish mist as my physical eyes ceased to function. I had to close them. Abruptly as it started, it stopped. Then I could open my eyes and see Him standing there, tall, silent, radiant, with the wand held across His chest. He fixed me with a penetrating but kindly gaze for a moment, then a wide beam of green light sprang out of a faintly luminous shape hovering a few feet above the ground, about thirty yards away. Jesus moved a few steps to one side into this beam and was gone. Since this event, many others have seen shafts of light coming from this mountain top. They have also seen six space crafts over this area. The top of Holdstone Downs, dear friends, is Holy Ground, and will remain so until the end of the Earth.”

I have heard this George King in lecture on his tour of the United States last year (1959). He believes he has the Truth, and is on fire with it. Another man, Dan Fry, a United States scientist who has been working on top-secret projects concerning space, has also been touring with his message of “contacts with other planets”. He too is convinced of the truth of this matter. He no longer lives for his own pleasure, but spends his entire time giving this “space gospel”. He made the statement that he me longer takes time off to play golf or go fishing–there isn’t time! These men believe what they are preaching. The Bible says that some will be made to “believe a lie.” When these men with Satan’s message are so in earnest, how can we be less earnest in our witnessing for the Truth of God?

In the question period following one of the lectures I attended, I asked the question: “Is this Master that is coming the Jesus of Calvary, the same One who was crucified and resurrected?” The answer was astounding in view of the statements in Great Controversy. He said, “No, not the Christ of the cross, but the Christ of Revelation one!’ Then he proceeded to quote, word for word, the description given by John of Jesus walking amidst the seven candlesticks, “clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and His hair white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.”

Now, listen to this prophecy from page 624 in the Great Controversy:

“As the crowning act in the ereat drama of deception, Satan himself will personate Christ. In different parts of the earth, Satan will manifest himself among men as a Majestic being of dazzling brightness, resembling the description cf the Son of God given by John in the Revelation. The glory that surrounds him is unsurpassed by anything that mortal eyes have yet beheld. The shout of triumph rings out upon the air, ‘Christ has come: Christ has come!’ The people prostrate themselves in adoration before him, while he lifts up his hands, and pronounces a blessing upon them, as Christ blessed his disciples when He was upon the earth. His voice is soft and subdued, yet full cf melody. In gentle compassionate tones he presents some of the same gracious, heavenly truths which the Saviour uttered; he heals the diseases of the people, and then in his assumed character of Christ, he claims to have changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and commands all to hallow the day which he has blessed. He declares that those who persist in keeping holy the seventh day are blaspheming his name by refusing to listen to his angels sent to them with light and truth.”

If you have wondered how this prophecy could ever come to pass, it is now evident in this flying saucer movement which is now sweeping the world, that it could very readily burst upon the scene. If you could see the faces of the people who attend these lectures, and hear their voices raised in tearful earnestness, asking how they can speed the coming of the “New Master”, you would no longer wonder at the prophecy in Great Controversy.

I have mentioned early that one of the methods of contacts with “space” has been through trances. What actually occurs in some incidences is that Satan takes over the body temporarily, and uses the voice equipment (voice box) to produce the voices of so-called beings from other worlds. Tape recordings have been made of some of these contacts. I listened tc one of these recordings recently that caused the hair to stand up on the back of my neck! First we hear the very British voice of George King, saying that tonight they are going to contact a very “High Being in the Universe”, Jesus Christ Himself: There is a short pause while he goes into trance. Then comes this most beautiful voice, just as you imagine Jesus might have sounded when He was on earth. He addresses the people as “My Beloved Children”, and tells them to unite in brotherly love, and to get ready for His coming: Could Satan produce this voice? Of course he could, and did, as I heard myself: In Test. V 5, p. 698, we read, “He (Satan) will bear the appearance of Christ in every particular.”

There is so much more to all this that I couldn’t possibly cover it all in one talk. I’m going to close now, and perhaps you have a question or two that I might be able to answer.

Remember at the beginning of my talk I said that this was a war? Wel1, let me give you a statement from the enemy that is definitely a declaration cf war. Listen: “The Space People are on the verge of taking the initiative. watch out! World shattering events are soon due to occur. The ignorant, dogmatic disbeliever of today is due in the near future for such a shaking up that even he will change his mind in the light of the greater reason which will be presented by these events. “The master-plan is all inclusive–nothing–no one, has been omitted. So deep is this plan, so powerful are those who devised it, that come what may–it will succeed what a challenge! The Messenger of the Lord says, “So closely will the counterfeit resemble the true, that it will be impossible to distinguish between them except by the Holy Scriptures.” Great Controversy, page 593.

“Are the people of God now so firmly established upon His lord that they would not yield to the evidence of their senses? Would they in such a crisis, cling to the Bible, and the Bible only?”

“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”! Matt. 24:24.
