I have long wondered if the anti-Christ convinces the world’s armies to war against Jesus when He returns by convincing people that Jesus is an alien coming to destroy the world. What do you think?
At the 2nd Coming the anti-Christ will have convinced his followers that he’s God, trying to save everyone, and the one coming in the clouds is their evil enemy, trying to kill them all. That’s why Jesus said all the nations of the Earth will mourn when they see Him coming (Matt. 24:30). They’ll think the bad guys won.
So it’s more than an alien invasion. They will see it as the triumph of evil over good.
