Following the rapture, a seven-year tribulation period will begin (Revelation 6—12). Many wonder how the remaining people on earth will be deceived into not believing in Jesus after many disappear from earth in the rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51-58). Could an alien deception serve as an explanation?

Matthew 24:24 does suggest there will be a powerful deception that keeps most people from believing in Jesus despite the impact of millions of people disappearing during the rapture. However, the Bible does not define what this deception will be.
