The Great Delusion Film Review

SkyWatchTV lay the groundwork for their hypothesis; that the Great Delusion of the Bible is that Aliens are our progenitors and in the near future will appear as our saviours.

The Great Delusion Film Review
The Great Delusion by SkyWatchTV

There are several films with this title, so to be specific, this is the 2021 documentary film produced by SkyWatchTV.  In the final quarter of 2021 they were advertising it as part of their Defender Conference package, however, it is possible to view the film on its own for $2.95 via this link  The Great Delusion Movie.

For those of you who are not familiar with SkyWatchTV, they do a great job of producing content covering some of the confusing, or often misunderstood, parts of the Bible.  They carry out many interviews and visit many places to get original source material.  Then they write books, host conferences, produce video documentaries, and produce almost daily videos for their streaming services.

Their content very much complements the content that I produce here, in that they cover some of the big conspiracies and prophecies that relate to end-time events. However, they do not deal with preparedness, they don't talk about origins and they do not discuss modern-day prophetic words.  I think it is fair to characterize them as pre-tribulation pre-millennialists meaning that they expect things to get gradually worse until Jesus appears in the sky and rescues them prior to the tribulation when things get really bad.  

My only complaint with their content is that the shipping and taxes make their special bundles much less appealing than buying just one or two books in electronic format.

The film itself is well-made, high-quality content.  But the interviews are delivered more as soundbites than interviews.  It would have been interesting to know the full views of those being interviewed.  In that sense, it does come across as though the interviews themselves have been edited down to get to the narrative that relates to this particular topic.  There's nothing wrong with that but just something to be aware of.  When editing content in this way you do not necessarily get the view of the person being interviewed but the view of the one editing the content.

The Great Delusion Hypothesis

The core premise of the film is that UFO's and Aliens are real.  This is pretty much dealt with as fact and is not the subject of this film. No doubt they have other videos establishing their existence.  The timing of this film coincides with the release of some previously secret files by the Pentagon confirming the existence of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs).  Specifically, on June 25th 2021, the US government released their Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. This is something that the SkyWatchTV team say they have expected for the last twenty years.  They state that non-Christians have pushed for disclosure of these documents, whilst Christians have simply expected the disclosure of these documents.

The typical Christian response is covered quickly, that is to simply label anything unpleasant and otherworldly as demonic. Whilst some Christians will try to explain it away as a delusion with a natural explanation.  Conversely, the late Monsignor Corrado Balducci as a Vatican theologian and exorcist has stated that interactions with extraterrestrials are happening, and that they are not demonic and that they have vastly superior intelligence.

The Vatican, and in particular the Jesuits, are very involved in astronomy.  On Mount Graham they have an observatory that is home to the L.U.C.I.F.E.R. device. The device forms part of a larger telescopic system; the telescope operates in the Infrared spectrum so can see things outside the human visual spectrum.  The name of the device was later changed to L.U.C.I. so as not to be embarrassing to the Vatican.  And it should be clarified that the Vatican does not own the device but that they operate out of the same location as the device.  Father Malachi Martin worked at the observatory for many years and later at the Vatican itself, and he is ominously quoted as saying that those at the top level of their organisation know what is coming.

The film then seemed to diverge for a time to discuss the Anasazi and some petroglyphs at Newspaper rock.  The depictions seem to show giants and alien creatures.  The oral history from the native Americans is that the Anasazi were made crazy and turned to cannibalism, led by a reptilian creature.

Genesis 6:4 states:

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.

The case is made that these sons of God may still be visiting the Earth.  Other sources, particularly the book of Enoch (an apocryphal work) call the sons of God Watchers. This term distinguishes them from other creatures in God's hierarchy.  This goes beyond the topic of this post, but to summarize, the Watchers are fallen angels who have been banished from the Earth for a time until the end when they are permitted to return.  The Nephilim were the progeny of the Watchers and Earthly women, and demons are the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim.

The alien abduction phenomenon is discussed, as often the abductions involve some form of sexual investigation.  It is presented in the film that the Watchers have a desire to reproduce and recreate a Nephilim race.  They suspect that this may not be possible due to the degradation of the human genome although together with Earthy scientists, the pursuit of this super-warrior technology continues.

The Great Delusion climax

The climax of the film is that we can expect full disclosure of these Alien visitors. They will arrive in such a way as to be welcomed by rulers of world governments and world religions.  They will be presented as both our creators and our saviours.

The information is being slowly drip-fed to the masses.  Evolutionary biologists are stuck with a lack of evidence meaning that more and more are turning to the theory of a creator. Eminent atheists are struggling to find a convincing origin story.  The Vatican is setting the stage for intellectual visitors with superior intellect and superior ethics.  And in the world right now a calamity is being orchestrated from which we will need a superior intelligence to save us.

When the alien disclosure is made then the whole world will be deceived, if possible, even the elect.  See Matthew 24:24

For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.

And Luke 17:26 (ESV)

Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.

Do you believe that in the days ahead a race of Angelic beings will appear openly to humans again, posing as our alien creators?  Or do you have another view?  Join the conversation by posting in our Telegram chat at
