No. Chuck specifically talks against the dangers of Freemasonry in several of his briefing packs and sometimes in a manner that a Freemason would be excommunicated (See session 6 of Expectations of the Antichrist for example).
Unfortunately Chuck's past lucrative secular career is often referred to. However his career ended abruptly after he had become the chairman of a small, publicly owned development company which made a multi-billion dollar agreement with the Soviet Union to supply personal computers to 143,000 schools. Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances arose and the venture failed. The Misslers lost everything, including their home, automobiles and insurance.
Chuck's good friend, Hal Lindsey, encouraged Chuck to take up his number one passion which was to teach the Bible, and devote himself to full-time ministry. Chuck and Nancy established Koinonia House in 1973 and after a terrible earthquake demolished their home in Big Bear, California in 1992, Chuck and Nancy moved Koinonia House to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. "A small ministry that casts a large shadow" as he puts it, Chuck went on to produce many briefings and commentaries that have been played on radio stations and TV worldwide. Chuck lived out his final years in a small house at K-House's Southern base, The River Lodge in rural New Zealand. (See also Chuck's Biography)
With his military background, his access to top-level individuals, and his technical knowledge, many people have surmised that Chuck was in the CIA. When we asked Chuck he told us, after having a good long laugh, that it was never something he wanted to do, and even if he did, he would have never had the time. (See Visual Timeline) Although he did work on classified projects, all of the details of these projects are freely available for people to read about online.
Does Chuck believe in the 'Ancient Aliens' (Also called Ancient Astronaut) theory that there are extraterrestrial beings that exsist from other planets?
The simple answer is no. Chuck does not believe that beings from another planet exisit or have visited earth in spacecraft. From the below articles, his Briefing Packages on 'Angels' and his book 'Alien Encounters,' Chuck essentially fit's 'Aliens' and 'UFO's' into two camps: Man-made or Spiritual beings.
Here is a list of articles on what Chuck has to say about 'Aliens':
Mischievous Angels or Sethites?
For someone who was more than 80 years old, Chuck did very well. 2011-2012 Chuck had a lingering cold which affected his voice (Which you may notice in his recent John commentary), 2015 to the beginning of 2016 was hard on Chuck as not only did his beloved wife Nancy Missler pass away, but so did his son Mark Missler shortly afterwards, followed by a time spent in the hospital due to pneumonia. In 2017 Chuck retired and then passed away in his sleep, in May of 2018, at the age of 83.
No. Contrary to how most people 'remember', Chuck's Ferrari was in fact, a grey 308GTS Ferrari. He only owned the car while he worked for Western Digital in the late '70s and '80s. Since that time Chuck has not owned any more exotic cars.
No. Although Chuck does explore Equidistant Letter Sequencing (ELS) in many of his studies such as Hidden Treasures, he only does so to show some interesting examples of the uniqueness of God's Word that defy mere coincidence. It also seems to be an example that the Bible has been designed to anticipate and prevent what Chuck calls "Hostile Jamming". Chuck mentions on several occasions the dangers of going too far with ELS, warns against some of the "nonsense" surrounding ELS and not to delve into divination or try to use ELS to predict future events as the Bible prohibits it.
No. Although Chuck started regular teaching at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa in the 1970s, Chuck founded Koinonia House, a non-denominational ministry. Chuck does not promote any denomination but rather encourages people in any denomination to take the Bible seriously.
Knowing that a 'going to church once a week' is not adequate, Chuck promotes regular Bible study and small home fellowships as complementary, not a replacement for church fellowship. Chuck continues to speak wherever he's welcome, maintains friendships with people of many denominations and when speaks at any venue often quips "I'm sure I'll have something to say that will offend everyone".
