The government is and has been, conditioning the existence of aliens through Hollywood, science fiction, cartoons, and other sources. These Aliens are not ascended masters, or enlightened ones, or beings from galaxies millions of miles away, nor are they our forefathers or original creators. The Lord has told me that in the coming days, these Aliens will make their presence more visibly and physically known on earth. As the end times approach, the lies of extra terrestrial lineage, heritage, and creation will come out in full force. Two Separate Rebellions in the Early Days Most people are familiar with the rebellion of Satan wanting to be like God and wanting to be worshipped as God. In Enoch Chapter 6:1 it says.. 3 and beget us children.'
