Crop circles are literally the biggest supernatural phenomenon of the modern times – both in its physical dimensions and in its importance. For those who are new to this subject, I will first give a description of what crop circles are.
Crop circles are intricate patterns created by flattening of a crop such as wheat, maize, barley. They appear all over the world. A 2009 report gave the number of countries where this phenomenon exists at over 52, including Australia, China, Germany, Russia, Japan, USA, The Netherlands, Austria, Canada, Brazil, Romania, Hungary. Documented cases have substantially increased from the 1970s to current times and now number in the thousands. Formations usually appear overnight; local farmers wake up to find an entire field of wheat flattened. Some are reported to have appeared during the day, but there is not a single case of anyone witnessing how they are made, except when some hoaxers were creating one.
Many of the crop circles are hoaxes, produced by human pranksters, such as by dragging planks attached to ropes, but scientific authorities confirm that many others are of non-human origin. U.K. crop circle researcher Karen Alexander said,
‘There’s no doubt that some crop circles are made by people…But then there’s quite a large percentage for which origin is just unknown’, said Alexander, co-author of Crop Circles: Signs, Wonders, and Mysteries. National Geographic News
ABC News reported the investigation of the phenomenon by Colin Andrews, an electrical engineer who has studied and written about crop circles for more than 20 years. His conclusion: ‘I am totally convinced that we are looking at some form of intelligence.’ He came to this conclusion after his ‘investigations showed there were some circles in which the plants where not damaged at all but compressed to the ground and continuing to grow’.
As noted by a London businessman, Michael Glickman, ‘[If the circles are made by pranksters] They are erudite in geometry and drawing and proportion. They are capable of invisibility because they’ve never been seen or caught. They are capable of floating above the ground, because they’ve never left a track. What is their motive please?’
M. Night Shyamalan, director of the movie, Signs, which is based on crop circles, said that if they’re hoaxes, ‘it’s an interesting thing that everybody in all these countries seems to express themselves in the same way’.
Over the last three decades, the formations have evolved from simple, relatively small circles to huge designs with multiple circles, elaborate pictograms, and shapes that invoke complex non-linear mathematical principles. A formation that appeared overnight on August 13, 2001 at Milk Hill in Wiltshire contained 409 circles, covered about 12 acres (5 hectares), and was more than 800 feet (243 meters) across. The sheer size and complexity of this formation is staggering. It has been estimated that hoaxers would have had to make one circle every 30 seconds during the night time hours in order to create this design!
And the phenomenon shows no signs of abating. Hundreds of new crop formations continue to be discovered in designs of growing sophistication and size which leaves no doubt that there is an unexplained force at work. More than 10,000 have been documented since records began. According to some estimates, crop circles appear overnight in farmers’ fields every week somewhere around the world .
Crop Circles and More is a research organization and website established by Bert Janssen to try to solve the mystery of this phenomenon. Janssen has been attempting to solve them for nearly 20 years now, and this is how he feels about them:
‘From my way of looking at it, crop circles are the greatest mystery of modern times. These are images or voices of light in a world that is void of it.’ cropcirclesandmore.com
Not only for crop circle researchers and extraterrestrial believers, I believe that for Bible believers too it is literally the biggest supernatural sign on earth today that we are living in the ‘last days’, and that we are most probably the very generation that will witness the end of this age and the return of Christ. We cannot know the day and time, but I think, just like we know that when the fig tree puts out its sprouts summer should come not in another one or two years but in the very year that it sprouts, even so we can say that when the prophesied endtime signs begin to appear, we can know it is ‘very near’, and the very generation that sees this sign will also be the generation that will witness the return of Jesus Christ.

Now let me go on to make plain what these crop circles mean for you personally and what should be your attitude and response to them.
First of all, understand that the authentic crop circles are a sign from an unknown source. It is one of the sure signs that we are living in the end times.
‘Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?…And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven’ Mat 24:3,11
The signs are not from the ‘heaven’ where God’s throne is now, but from the ‘sky’, which is one of the three meanings of the original Greek word ouranos. It is the same word translated ‘air’ and ‘sky’ in the following verses:
‘And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” ’ Mat 8:20
‘He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’ ” ’ Mat 16:2
The other two meanings of ouranos are space or cosmos, where the planets are, and the heaven where God now dwells. The meaning depends on the context of the verse.
In this case, the signs have to be from sources in the sky or air, or in space because God cannot be the One forming the crop circles. And what are these sources in the sky or in space?
‘For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.’ Eph 6:12
‘heavenly places’ is translated from epouranios, which means ‘above the sky’, and is a derivative of the word ouranos
A close study of the design of the crop circles clearly show them of similar pattern to ancient pagan religious symbols.
“The formations are universal symbols that have been used by various peoples throughout time… These geometric shapes are like hieroglyphs. The hieroglyphs and pictographs carved in stone on this planet are a similar generation of intelligence.” phils.com.au
Most, perhaps, all, of these crop circles appear, not near churches or places of Godly fellowship, but close to ancient pagan worship or burial sites such as in Stonehenge and Avebury, Britain. Wiltshire – generally acknowledged as crop circle central – is littered with Stone Age monuments. They have also been found near mounds of earth and stones raised over a grave or graves. Many New Age groups incorporate crop circles into their belief systems.
‘Crop circles “like” ancient sites’, noted Karen Alexander, co-author of Crop Circles: Signs, Wonders, and Mysteries.
Crop circle patterns have a striking similarity to many pagan symbols such as found in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and in Eastern religions today. Interestingly, crop circles appear in countries where there is a significant population of people believing, or susceptible to belief, in the occult sciences, including astrology. Their appearance is closely tied to the general psyche or culture of the people. The Wikipedia notes, ‘Circle crops are culture-dependent: they appear mostly in Western countries and Japan, but they don’t appear at all in Muslim countries’.
Why not the Muslim countries? Because Satan knows that the Muslims are forbidden to believe in anything that strays from their belief in Allah and what the Koran teaches. It is an absolute waste of time for Satan to try to convince a nation of daily-five-times praying citizens to take an interest in aliens and their messages.
But what about Britain and the other ‘Christian’ countries, where crop circles appear in the largest numbers? Don’t these nations have the Bible and believe in the Great God? Here is God’s own testimony about the people who officially are known as Christians:
‘Surely [Lord] You have rejected and forsaken your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled [with customs] from the east and with soothsayers [who foretell] like the Philistines; also they strike hands and make pledges and agreements with the children of aliens.’ Is 2:6 AMP
The House of Jacob refers to the descendants of the twelve tribes of Israel, who are now found mainly in the English-speaking countries and in some parts of Europe. More about their identities in other messages in this website.
The so-called Christian nations as a whole are as pagan in their attitude and culture as those in the Eastern religions. Only a small minority of people who call themselves Christian are truly Christians in God’s sight.
Crop circles are part of a great conspiracy by Satan to deceive the whole world by diverting people’s attention from the endtime events prophesied in the Bible to events that reinforce belief in ufos and aliens. The crop circles are actually coded messages from the demonic world, masquerading as contact attempts by aliens. At least one message has been decoded by researchers but what it refers to is not clear to the researchers yet. One of the communications from the unknown source is known as the ‘Arecibo Message Reply’.
The Arecibo Message Reply is perceived by researchers as a reply from an extraterrestrial intelligence in response to astronomers (including Carl Sagan) at Cornell University sending a short communication, named Arecibo Message, into space on November 16, 1974. The Arecibo Message was a binary coded sketch that had a basic information about human beings and earth. It was sent out from the Arecibo Station in Puerto Rico, so thus its name.
Then, 27 years later, on August 14, 2001 – one day after the awesome Wiltshire crop circle appeared – a crop formation appeared that had unique properties in its design. It notably appeared next to the UK’s largest astronomical station. This crop formation had a recognizable human-like face. Then, on August 17, 2001, three days later, another crop circle near it appeared overnight in farmland next to the Chilbolton radio telescope; home to the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) in Hampshire, UK. Many believe it is a reply to the Arecibo Message, and thus has been called the Arecibo Message Reply. With this ‘reply’, many are claiming that this crop circle is the first ‘contact in a series of communication’ with extraterrestrials.
Almost an exact year later, another astounding crop circle appeared overnight that depicted an Alien holding up a sort of CD Disk. The Disk appeared to have a binary code configuration. Crop researchers used image analysis to convert the binary sequences into ASCII. What came out of the coding was a very comprehendible message of five sentences in English as follows:
‘Beware of the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises. Much pain but still time. There is good out there. We oppose deception. Conduit closing.’
This is a significant message, for both alien-believers and Bible-believers. For people who are not familiar with Bible warnings about communications from another world, this message seems a benevolent warning to mankind. It seems to warn man of people who come preaching spiritual gifts and making date-specific prophecies that never come to pass. Who are these ‘bearers’. More than anyone else, I think of Christian preachers who have been prophesying, especially since the beginning of the 20th century, about the end of the world and the return of Christ. A quick search on the internet will show the numerous ‘broken’ prophecies of the past few decades.
I was once a member of a worldwide church led by man whose prophecies led many members to prepare earnestly for the ‘end’. At least one member stacked up canned food in his trailer to live through the prophesied global famine. It is only because of God’s mercies that I was delivered from accepting any more false gifts and broken promises, and was shown where to go for gifts and promises that never fail. May this message reveal to you yet one more aspect of how you can be prepared for the coming of Jesus Christ, the bearer of true gifts and eternal promises.
The alien messenger purports concern for mankind’s suffering, but offers hope that it is still not too late to save the world, and that if mankind puts in enough effort they can still find enough good in the world to deliver themselves out of their escalating global problems. And then the Arch-Deceiver, to deflect any doubts that this message is from him, delivers a psychological tactic to thwart suspicion about the intent of this communication. Since this messenger opposes deception, people therefore can naturally trust all such future communications from this source.
Then the messenger closes his communication conduit, and now the deceived people would eagerly await the opening of his next channel of communication to bring them further light on coming world events.
‘And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light’ 2 Cor 11:14 AMP
The thousands of crop circles which have appeared so far have each a message of its own, but right now the messenger is not ready to reveal them yet to mankind. So why bother forming unexplainable crop circles now, and not when the messages are ready for revelation? Because then there would not be time enough to reveal them all at one fell swoop. What is probably going to happen is, in the coming years, researchers would find a way to decode the patterns of the crop circle and record each message. The thousands of messages thus decoded and recorded will be then be made available to mankind so that their minds can be set to accept the Satanic deceptions in the endtimes.
‘The circles and shapes being put on Earth are all connected to one another, and if they were written out simultaneously on some farmer’s field, something would happen to them immediately. These shapes hold intelligence and are being set up to eventually connect and make an intelligent gridwork around the planet. This gridwork will have a frequency that humanity can use to evolve. The whole language is not on the planet at this time.’ phils.com.au
And what could be the essence of this extraterrestrial revelation?
‘From my way of looking at it, crop circles are the greatest mystery of modern times. These are images or voices of light in a world that is void of it.’ Bert Janssen, Crop Circles and More, a research organization
Just as Christ’s gospel is going out into all the world today through his true servants, an alternate gospel is being propagated by Satan’s servants with equal intensity in all the nations. Christ’s gospel includes a sequence of terrifying endtime events.
‘And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come…Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect…Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it…For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be…Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.’ Mat 24:14-29
Greater signs for both Bible believers and unbelievers are coming very soon. When believers see them, they will know that their Lord’s coming is imminent. But when the unbelievers see them, they will be convinced of the authenticity of all the messages they have been receiving through the crop circles and other media of alien communication. They will be prepped with these messages till the onset of the prophesied sights in the sky.
The messages will warn them of an invasion by alien enemies from outer space. And when the actual events preceding the coming of the Lord happen, the whole world will unify against the invading forces. Nations that have been warring against each other will now gather together at a place outside Jerusalem called the Valley of Megiddo, and there the battle called Armageddon will occur between Earth forces and the supposedly space invaders. Even Hollywood, with its films such as Independence Day and War of the Worlds, is playing an active part in syching people to respond as Satan wants them to at the coming of Christ.
You and your family need not be caught up in a false preparation for the endtime events as the rest of the world sees it. Your God has given ample warnings for his own people on what they must do now and when these events take place. Now what our Lord expects us to do is to be alert to world events, including all the signs, even those from the global Deceiver.
‘But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour[ your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.’ Mat 24:36-44
All the paranoia in the world today about UFOs and alien abductions will find its culmination among the deceived people when the actual disappearance of people occur en masse in every nation. Two men…suddenly one disappears; two women…in a blink, one vanishes. Both abducted by aliens.
The alternative messages and awesome signs from the spirit world will be so convincing that even the people close to God and who are fully aware of his endtime prophecies could be deceived. However, God will provide his chosen people with supernatural discernment so that they will not be deceived.
‘For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.’ Mat 24:24,25
O People of God, watch and heed. Know your Bible and what God’s Word says about the events leading to the coming of our Savior. Be watchful daily and pray often and earnestly for your and your loved ones’ protection in these end times so you and your family will not be snared by the daily cares of this life but will be counted worthy to escape all these things which are going to come soon.
‘But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.’ Luke 21:34-36
