At Christmas time it might be rewarding to review ancient manuscripts
that have resulted in most of the Western World celebrating Christmas.
As you know, the basis for all Christian religion is the Bible and we
shouldn't forget that the first five books in the Bible are the Torah
which is the basis for Judaism. I'm well aware that many scientific
readers feel that UFOs have nothing to do with religion, but lets look
at what the Bible written over two thousand years ago actually says.
For example, we're told angels are sent to watch over you. You
have a choice to ignore this information, or to accept its full meaning.
We know the Torah and the Bible are filled with references to angels,
clouds, and heaven. The key to understanding the true meaning
of the Bible is to define the important words that might be related
to UFOs, so I looked up some key words in the "Unger Bible Dictionary"
that is considered the best dictionary for 'defining the Bible and clarifying
unfamiliar names, places and objects.' Merrell F. Unger Th.D.,
Ph.D., plus several other scholars wrote this dictionary based on their
life time of studies. Unger defines Angel: "In its
most common use in Scripture the word angel designated certain spiritual
and superhuman beings who are introduced to us as messengers of God."
Angels appear most frequently and conspicuously in connection with coming
and ministry of our Lord. They are personal, sinless, immortal
beings, existing in great number, and in close relation not only with
individual men but also with the history of God's kingdom. It
is clear that Satan and his fallen angels (demons) were created sinless
and later fell." Another scholar who personally spent over
a 100,000 hours of study and 43 years of searching is Finnis Jennings
Dake and his family. "Dake's Annotated Reference Bible" tells
us angels have bodies similar to men, eat, walk, fight, wrestle, fly
and have intellectual powers and passions similar to men but come from
heaven. Angels are mentioned 298 times in the Bible and almost
all are stories that relate to helping man grow spiritually and morally.
Unger defines Heaven as follows, "Scripture evidently specifies
three heavens, since 'the third heaven' is revealed to exist and
it is logical that a third heaven cannot exist without a first and second
heaven." The first however, apparently refers to the atmospheric
heavens of the birds and clouds. The second heaven may be the
stellar spaces. It is the abode of all supernatural angelic beings.
The third heaven is the abode of the divine plan at present to populate
the third heaven. It is called 'Glory' those who enter will be
perfected forever and made partakers of Christ's fullness, which is
all fullness and which comprehends the very nature of the Godhead bodily.
The apostle John was called into heaven" "Dake's Reference
Bible " goes on to say heaven like Earth is a material round planet
created by God and is God's dwelling place that has great beauty, clouds,
cities, streets, mansions, inhabitants, temples, chariots, horses, food,
animals, armies, wars, and is located in the north part of the universe.
Men have been taken there and lived for thousands of years."
Apparently, angels travel from heaven to Earth aboard a space ship called
Cloud: Dr.Unger says, "The allusions to
clouds in Scripture, as well as their use in symbolical language, can
only be understood when we remember the climate, where there is hardly
a trace of cloud from May to the end of September. During this
season clouds so seldom appear and rains so seldom fail as to seem phenomenal,
as was the case with the harvest rain. Clouds are referred to
as showing the power and wisdom of God in their formation. (Psalms 135.6).
They are called the clouds of heaven. (Daniel 7-12) windows above (Isaiah
24:18) Figuratively the clouds are symbols of armies. They are used
to signify God's presence." Two thousand years ago birds
were virtually the only flying objects in the sky, therefore anything
that was not a bird was called a cloud. Birds are only mentioned
27 times in the Bible while a single cloud is mentioned 107 times and
multiple clouds 49 times. When I visited Israel there were no
clouds for almost half a year so it is my personal feeling that a cloud
is another name for Unidentified Flying Objects flown by angels or messengers.
Here are some typical statements about a cloud or space ship from the
And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of
cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to
give them light, that they might travel by day and by night; (Exodus
The Ten Commandments was brought in a cloud. And the Lord said
to Moses, "Lo, I am coming to you in a thick cloud, that the people
may hear when I speak with you, and may also believe you for ever."
"The Lord rides on a cloud." (Isaiah 19).
The Bible in my opinion is a wonderful book about UFOs and their messengers
the angels. Regarding Christmas story the Bible says, "In
the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth and a town in
Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a
descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel
went to her and said, "Greetings you are highly favored!
The Lord is with you." Mary was greatly troubled at his words
and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel
said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with
God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are
to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called
the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his
Father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, his
kingdom will never end. "How can this be" Mary asked
the angel, "since I am a virgin?' The angel answered, The
Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will
over shadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the
Son of God! (Luke 1-verses 26 to 35). Two thousand years
later, much of world celebrates this birth of Christ the Son of Man
And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud
with power and great
glory. [Luke 21:27.13]
These extraterrestrial visitors or angels are sent from the Third Heaven
aboard amazing craft called clouds in the Bible. These angelic
real according to most of the great historic religious writings of mankind.
It seems reasonable that the stories are not myths, but are based on
visits by messengers, visitors, watchers, ET, angels, or what ever you
to call them. They are given credit for bringing gifts such as
morality based on the Ten Commandments to Earth. Thousands of
been written describing their interactions with Earth. If you
great temples and churches around the world, almost all have the story
angel who oversaw their construction. Often there are similar
strange UFOs in the sky. Several of my friends claim they
were visited and
even healed by angels. All that happens in the world may not be
simply be by
chance. Angels may be controlling things more than we suspect.
when you enjoy Christmas it all started with an angel. Here are
interesting quotes: "For he will command his angels concerning
you to guard
you in all your ways.
And when he had said this, as they were looking on, he was lifted up,
cloud took him out of their sight." (Acts 1:9.18)
Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in
with a rainbow over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his
like pillars of fire. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying
them, "Come up hither!" And in the sight of their foes they
went up to heaven
in a cloud. (Revelation 10 and 11)
"He (Christ) was still speaking, when lo, a bright cloud overshadowed
and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son, with
whom I am well
pleased; listen to him." (Matthew 17)
Now that you know some of
definitions of the Bible, where thousands of prophesies have already
full filled it becomes exciting reading. "Have a Merry Christmas!"
