The debate over so-called "alien artifacts" on the planet Mars is heating up again with the release of yet another video showing definitive evidence of civilization on Earth's near neighbor. A new 2 hour program entitle Redstar - The Martian Genesis from Christian prophecy teacher Stewart Best is again stirring up a subject that has been simmering for the last 25 years.
Moving into an arena where research pioneers such as Richard Hoagland, Vince DiPietro, and Mark Carlotto (among many others) have long labored, Best's new video convincingly demonstrates that Mars was, or presently is, occupied by some form of unknown entities. Setting Christian theology and prophetic analysis aside for the moment, the new Redstar video specifically focuses on actually proving there are buildings on Mars.
Although several commercial videos have been released that show computer enhanced images of what are apparently artificial structures on the surface of Mars, the Stewart Best produced video has an ingredient never before seen. In addition to several startlingly clear images of buildings, the Redstar video shows a hexagonal building that has a virtual twin in an adjacent location.
The primary argument against the many photos of Mars showing civilization - including the now famous "face" that has been so hotly debated - is the response that the various shapes photographed are simply natural formations. Redstar changes all this with a reasonable resolution NASA originated photograph that shows two virtually identical shapes - hexagonal buildings - duplicated in every respect in close proximity to each other.
The equivalent of "the smoking gun," this means there is now no doubt that there are intelligently designed structures on Mars. To put it another way, the odds are so (if you'll pardon the pun) astronomically against any random natural landscape feature having an identical twin, that it is virtually undeniable that the artifacts seen on this program were constructed artificially. (More information on the Redstar video is available by clicking on the More On This Subject button below).
From this writer's perspective, it is inconceivable that the controlling powers have not known of this information for many years. Indeed, the entire field of inquiry is littered with intentional disinformation, "lost" or "doctored" computer images, an inordinately high percentage of supposedly failed exploratory missions, and a systematic obfuscation of the truth that has emanated downwards from the highest levels of government.
For the benefit of those that already understand the complex nature of Conspiracy, we will leave the subject of proving the existence of alien artifacts to those most qualified, and move to the analysis of such data in the light of Biblical prophecy.
While most "churches" and their leaders simply scoff at this type of information, they are setting themselves up to be blindsided by the inevitable emergence of an extraterrestrial component to the Last Day's scenario. Instead of hiding from the truth in the classic Ostrich pattern so ably illustrated by our "friends" in the Rapture Cult and the non-prophet whorehouse that poses as the organized Christian church, we choose to examine the truth under the trustworthy lamp of holy writ. To put it another way, when JESUS said "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32), we didn't get the impression that meant we were supposed to suppress the facts that don't assimilate well into our worldview.
The Bible tells us that "the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things...." (I Corinthians 2:15, 15) At the same time, the Word cautions us that in the end times, our enemy will be manifested in the form of a man described as the "wicked one...whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders." (II Thessalonians 2:8, 9)
When the Bible makes the assertion that God's "word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path" (Psalms 119:105), we are being told that the truth will be found in scripture, even as "all the works that are done under the sun" are said to be "vanity and vexation of spirit." (Ecclesiastes 1:14)
It is also clear that the Bible says "If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there" (Psalm 139:8), and so we see that God is the Lord of all the universe - and His realm is endless and eternal. Because the potential of the discovery of an assumed extraterrestrial presence clearly impacts the perception of religion in the world (to say nothing of the study of origins), we recognize that such a discovery is going to impact everything we know and believe. Thus, the scriptures become even more valuable and essential as we recognize the great deceiver is just about due to spring what the Apostle Paul calls a "Strong Delusion."
I find it singularly ironic that the scriptural accounts that most closely address the subject of "visitors" from the heavens (read another planet) just happen to be the very verses that are most commonly rejected - or re-interpreted in such a fashion as to make them virtually useless. I am, of course, referring to the astonishing story of the Nephilim that is found in Genesis Chapter 6.
In that profound section of the book of beginnings, we see that the B'Nai Elohim, seen in English as "the sons of God," are said to engage in what is clearly an unnatural practice as they "saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose." (Genesis 6:2) That these "sons of God" are angels is plainly delineated in the book of Job where we see "the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them." (Job 1:6)
The Genesis narrative goes on to tell us that this was the time of the Nephilim - a literal Hebrew term meaning "fallen ones." Genesis tells us these "sons of God" married "the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." (Genesis 6:4) The text firmly indicates that these unholy hybrids descended from the fallen angels assumed the leadership of the world, and in a relatively brief period, man's activities had become so thoroughly wicked that God brought about the great flood of Noah.
What ties this all together is the simple fact that when JESUS CHRIST was asked "what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" Matthew recorded that He responded that "as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." (Matthew 24:3, 37) It is crucial that we see that the primary text detailing the conditions that were prevalent in "the days of Noah" is the very same passage that describes the incredible story of the Nephilim.
Centuries ago, the scholars of Christendom sought to show that it was impossible for this passage to be referring to fallen angels mating with human women, and so they widely re-interpreted the passage to refer to the good sons of Seth (Adam and Eve's third son). This allowed them to avoid the sticky social question of seeking to explain how such a thing as angelic-human reproduction was possible. The whole subject just seemed too outlandish, so the church simply retreated to a theological explanation in the face of the religiously inconvenient statements found in the controversial passage.
The fact is, history records throughout the Old Testament that the various gods and goddesses that were worshiped in ancient times were related to these Nephilim and their descendants. Detailed records exist that closely connect the pagan deities of antiquity with the planetary gods of old. It is self-evident that the fallen angels pronounced themselves as spirit beings that came from heaven - thus providing a logical connection as to why the Babylonians, the Egyptians, and the Persians (and almost every other antiquarian society) so quickly embraced astronomy and astrology. This was their religion, and it was closely connected with the worship of the "gods" of antiquity - the Nephilim.
Thus, having already come to the conclusion that we may expect some "heavenly visitors" in the form of a so-called extraterrestrial "discovery" of earth shaking importance, we are not at all surprised to see the new evidence of an "alien" presence on Mars. What is also self-evident is that with these "scholarly" doctrines of men replacing the plain teaching of the Bible, the "church" has been neutralized in its ability to stand and counter the inevitable false doctrine that will emerge as a result of this breathtaking new information.
The high tech world of aliens seems almost perfectly tailored for our sophisticated, modern minds. But the Bible says "professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." (Romans 1:22) The Bible promises that man will reap what he sows, so if we have sowed laziness by letting the blind guides teach us as a substitute for studying "to show [ourselves] approved unto God" (II Timothy 2:15), our sloth in learning the truth will reap a bitter harvest where "there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 8:12)
Don't get me wrong. We're not questioning the raw data, for that is to deny the obvious and pretending things are not as they are is foolishness. In fact, we find it exciting to realize that events are now starting to accelerate dramatically. To put it another way, it's extremely likely there actually are buildings on Mars - the question is more related to how we interpret the data.
Do we take the explanations provided by our near-sighted leaders, both religious and scientific, or do we already know what is about to occur because we know the one who knows all things and He has warned of what is directly ahead? The grand deception has now begun, and the Devil will take advantage of every single man, woman, and child that does not know the truth that is readily available to the Remnant of Jesus Christ.
