Of all film genres, science fiction is my hands-down favorite, especially Star Trek. I can remember as a little boy sitting beside my dad on the couch, both of us with a glass of cold milk in one hand and toasty pretzel sticks in the other, watching our Star Fleet friends boldly go.
For me, science fiction’s appeal is in its ability to temporarily transport me out of the misery of this fallen-flesh life and into a place of pure imagination. The universe is a very vast and real place, ever before us in the night sky, and science fiction is my primo vehicle to quite literally endless worlds of possibility.
But while a source of wondrous adventure, this genre is yet one more medium through which the enemy of mankind manipulates, and we humans are notoriously poor at discerning appropriate teachers.
For example, through this fictitious genre, the devil would have everyone believe that, from the ever advancing sciences and technologies of man, “all things are possible”. Interesting. Isn’t that just what God said about Himself? (Matthew 19:26)
Near the end of the 2018 Sci-Fi film, At First Light, the beings of light, who had at last officially arrived, stated, “We’re here. It’ll get better now.” Please, do not even dare to believe that one for a second!
Can you not see how we are being ever so subtly primed? On and on it goes, barely noticeable, a tiny bit here, a tiny bit there in practically every movie.
Through all modern forms of entertainment, satan has been patiently and determinedly plying this kind of subtle witchcraft from the start, gradually indoctrinating the masses, nudging carefully timed new concepts into the mainstream (Darwinism, aliens, genetic planet seeding, etc., etc.), softening us to more easily accept his soon coming greatest deception, a deception fit for the modern, high-tech man, and many there are who have now been made ripe to fall for it.
Yes, in ancient times, satan did successfully deceive the multitudes by simply stirring up a great cloud of false deities to obscure the way to our one true Creator. But now, in his last, greatest assault, he has skillfully engineered a new god; the modern, seemingly big and powerful god of science and technology which boldly proclaims that all ancient gods of primitive man are merely superstition, including Jesus and His Father, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. Hmm… Were we not already warned that the world would turn away from Jesus in the end? (1 John 4:3, Matthew 24:10) What better way than to ever-so-slowly kill off God altogether.
Now is the time to remain awake and watchful that you are not lulled into this anti-Jesus trap. Remember what happened when God’s own people turned from Him and placed their faith instead in the might of Egypt? (Isaiah 31:1) Learn well this lesson from history so that when the time comes, you will not seek salvation from fallen angels of light posing as technologically advanced extraterrestrial beings promising a new golden age for the inhabitants of Earth. Do not choose technology as your savior with its pseudo promises of an immortal life in the flesh lived in an artificial approximation of Heaven.
Rather, keep your faith firmly planted in Jesus, the Son of Almighty God, in whom all power over Heaven and Earth has been given (Matthew 28:18). Seek none but Him for help while you wait patiently for the completion of this, our darkest test of faith. Above all, remember, in no way, shape or form (genetically or otherwise) should you ever allow the body that your Creator made for you to be altered, enhanced, modified, marked or implanted. For, such would be a clear sign, in no uncertain terms, that you have turned away from God and placed your faith instead in the might of the false god of science and technology.
God has said that without faith we cannot please Him (Hebrews 11:6). This final, soon coming, last great test of faith is a whopping doozy, and it is pass or fail forever this time (Revelation 14:11). Please, beloved, love God with all you’ve got by steeling yourself to pass this test!
