!! Movie Review !! Close Encounters of the 5th Kind – I Never Would Have Believed It !
While at the Eden Property this week, I watched a documentary about alien encounters. Now, I’m not a witness of any kind of extra terrestrial encounter, I’ve never seen in person any kind of crop circles nor did I serve in any kind of clandestine military organization focused on the impending intergalactic war, but I do find the idea of non-human entities enticing.
Not only this, but it does seem like the main thrust of consciousness studies today are focused on a particular world-view that fits in rather well with the current research I’m doing in my Unschooled Master of Theology Program.
This documentary, Close Encounters of the 5th Kind by Dr. Steven Greer, was quite interesting.
So, let’s explore the more eerie facets of the reality we are living in….
Well I’m Not A Believer
At first I thought this would be a pretty good documentary about aliens and the recent revelations by the US government of their encounter programs. And, it started off pretty well. But, as soon as I got my hopes up, they were then dashed to pieces by the revelation of what the purpose of this film really was.
Apparently there is a classification system used (that I had no idea was even created let alone used). Close Encounters of the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 kinds are different levels at which humans have interaction with extra terrestrial beings. The fifth, apparently, is the purposed human led seeking out of aliens here on earth.
At first, they just touched on there being techniques for contacting these aliens, but didn’t elaborate. But then they dropped the hammer and exposed their alternative motive.
Just like the Hacking Consciousness class I took awhile back at Stanford, this documentary is nothing more than a shabby advertisement to get people to abandon their Christian world-view and start practicing Transcendental Meditation.
Of course, if any of you have been reading here for any length of time, you know I went the opposite direction. I was a Zen Buddhist for most of my secondary school career, and devoted myself for those prime years toward TM and Zazen. Emptying my mind. Concentrating on nothing. Seeking enlightenment, an escape from the all present suffering of life. Even back then I recognized the sham of this world for what it was.
But, when I was 17, God reached down and shook me free of the false doctrine and worldview that I had come convinced of. Don’t get me wrong. I was a happy Buddhist. I wanted to enter the monastery. I wanted to devote my life to sitting. God had other plans, though.
Now, flash forward nearly 30 years, with at least a rudimentary bible education at my disposal, I can see the writing on the wall. I’ve become acquainted enough with the genuine article, the counterfeit has no shot of luring me away (um, I feel a fall coming).
It’s fascinating that I see such a concerted effort by academics, religious leaders, popular society to do whatever they can to derail as many as they can. Hinduism. Yoga. Meditation. Zen. All these far eastern doctrines are infiltrating (infiltrated) Christianity and without a single shot fired. We are the proverbial Babylon and Cyrus has just overtaken the city!
Just Another Advertisement for TM
It’s no surprise, of course. In fact, I’m starting to wonder if there is any genuine research being done on consciousness and death that is not in some way connected to the new age world-view.
It’s the going thing. It is what the left has been dying to do ever since they began. They are so desperate to get rid of God, to hide their eyes from the truth, they will do anything not to believe, to convince themselves that….well….he just doesn’t exist.
I’ve been there.
I know what it’s like to be angry at a God that I still know will one day judge me for what I’ve done with the time I’ve been given. And I still shake in my boots that I might have it wrong, that I might not know the truth, that I, too, have been deceived and deluded and led astray.
Went Downhill from There
By the time I got to the second half of the movie, it was pretty ridiculous. They were just saying the same things over and over again, showing the same images and video clips to fill time, and made sure to mention that everyone needed to open their minds, to call out to these alien beings and invite them in and there’s even an app to do just that!
There were a few times I almost turn the documentary off. But, I kept going, just to get to the end.
The reality is, at least in my estimation, these people are being taken in by demonic forces. They have deluded themselves, in their rabid fascination with new age, with what they call mysticism, with aliens and evolution and the host of other dogma that go along with them, that they have fallen under the spell of demonic entities that are hell bent on shipwrecking as many souls as they can.
I predict there will be a global alien encounter in the future. It will be peaceful and the wicked on this earth will use it as proof there is no God.
I say, so be it. As Paul put it, “that day (Judgment) will not come unless the falling away comes first” (2 Thessalonians 2:3). I think aliens (actually demons) will bring about the complete fulfillment of the strong delusion the bible references.
Deceptions and Great Delusion to Come
It’s fascinating how these people, these true believers, don’t see it. I remember when I was first saved, when he took meditation away from me, when I could no longer sit or read my books and the worldview that had brought me so much hope and comfort and joy was just stripped away – I remember reading in the bible about the great falling away to come. The church would lose in the end. People, many Christians (or so professed), would declare God a liar, would seek after the worldly and sensual and doctrines of demons.
I couldn’t wrap my head around it then. How was it possible? Society in the early 90’s was so far removed from anything like a global religion. There was talk of it, of course. But it was all the conspiracy nuts who saw connections in everything.
Fast forward to today, I read an article online that China has now demanded their Christian populations denounce Christ or they will lose their low-income benefits.
It’s only a matter of time before it comes to the US. We will eventually have to bend the knee or we will not be able to eat. Does that sound familiar? Churches are being burned all across the US but nothing about it is said in the mainstream media.
There is a great delusion and it is here and it is infecting everyone. My coworker told me one day, “I don’t know what’s happening to my daughter. We sent her to college and it’s like she’s been brainwashed. She’s not my little girl anymore. She’s a completely different person.”
And, this is what is happening around the world. And it was predicted by Paul back in the first century. “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11).
The strong delusion has been sent. People seek a new paradigm. The days of Noah are at hand, as predicted (Matthew 24:37)! Thanks be to God, to his truthfulness, to his reign. “Let God be true and every man a liar” (Romans 3:4).
I’m grateful and thankful and blessed to be a witness of the second coming. May it come quickly and not delay, for judgment is required, it is needed in such a time as this.
Would Not Recommend the Theory
I can’t say this documentary is really worth watching. If you want a two hour advertisement on why you need to just let them in, just connect to the universal consciousness that underlines all life in the cosmos so we can usher in a new world and a new evolution of humanity, then maybe.
Instead, I would recommend you set your tv remote aside and pick up your bible. Study up, because what was predicted centuries ago is being fulfilled today, before our very eyes. The world has truly lost it’s mind!
Until my next review….
Please consider supporting my writing, my unschooled studies, and my hermitic lifestyle by purchasing one or more of my books. I’m not supported by academia or have a lucrative corporate job – I’m just a mystical modern-day hermit trying to live out the life I believe God has called me to. So, any support you choose to provide is GREATLY appreciated.
Excerpt from Our Daughter:
“Okay, mom,” Randy said.
“You behave yourself and be nice. You’re lucky to have company while you wait for the doctors.”
The woman turned and started back the way she came.
“The nurse said it would be twenty or thirty more minutes, so we’ll eat quick and be back up here before they take you in, okay?”
“Sorry for him,” the woman said to Katie as she walked by.
As the woman left, Katie noticed the boy moving around again on the bed. Before she realized what was happening, the tiny lump disappeared and she could hear the faint sound of bare hands and feet on the tile floor.
He was low crawling under the beds toward her.
A moment later, Randy popped his head out from under the nearest hospital bed, craning his neck around to look up at her.
“Hello, there,” Katie said.
Randy disappeared back under the bed, the bed sheet draping down almost to the floor. Katie could still see three little fingers pressed to the tile.
“What are you here for?” Katie asked, readjusting her seat in the chair, trying to get the ache in her chest to lessen.
For whatever reason, the wheelchair was really uncomfortable.
“Why are – ”
Randy’s voice trailed off for a moment as he looked around.
“Why are you here?”
“I’m getting my leg fixed,” Katie said. “See?”
Randy poked his head back out from under the bed and looked at the leg she was pointing to.
“What’s wrong with it?”
“The doctor said it’s broken,” Katie said. “Shattered.”
“Can you feel it?” Randy asked, able to stay out from his hiding place.
“I can feel it, but it’s not too bad,” Katie said, then tapped the IV in her arm. “This thing is giving me medicine of some kind for the pain. At least that’s what the nurses said.”
“Why are you – ”
Randy stopped mid-sentence.
He scooted out from under the bed entirely and slowly crept over to her on all fours.
“What are you, some kind of spider?” Katie asked, giggling a little.
“What are you?” Randy echoed.
He was now only about a foot away from her chair and sat there, his legs folded up under him, gawking up at her.
“What are you staring at me for?”
“I’ve never – ”
Randy put out a hesitant hand and ever so gently touched her arm.
“Are you some kind of ghost?”
He looked around again.
“Are you – ”
He leaned in, talking in a whisper.
“Are you dead?”
A nurse came around the corner and stopped abruptly, spotting the empty bed in the far corner where Randy should have been.
“Randy Andrews,” the nurse said, her hands now on her hips. “You get right back into the bed and you stop playing around, please. They are ready for you in surgery.”
Katie watched as Randy scrambled on all fours under the beds and back up onto his, pulling the sheet back over top of himself again.
She started to ask him about his question, but couldn’t get the words out before his parents appeared at the door.
Katie sat there quietly, watching Randy stare back at her from under his sheet. She glanced over at his parents and the nurse, noticed Randy’s dad had no hair on the top of his head.
Are you dead?
What kind of question was that?
The snap of the wheel locks being disengaged on Randy’s hospital bed jarred Katie out of the confusion she was in.
The doctor she’d first seen was now at the door, waiting for Randy.
He was his surgeon.
They wheeled Randy out of the room, his parents following right behind, disappearing to the left, heading for his operating room.
The pre-op room was empty again.
Are you dead?
What kind of crazy question was that?
The nurse came back through the double doors.
“It won’t be long now,” she said.
Katie tried not to think about the dull ache growing just behind her sternum.
The nurse disappeared around the corner as Katie watched the double doors to the operating rooms slowly shut.
