Thanks Lost Shaman and that's a good site.
I will start with ancient manuscripts and then move on to cave drawings and UFO artwork.
First, a little background information is needed for this part. I'm a Christian and I actually realized that these things exist by reading the
Bible. When I first realized that the Bible was full of descriptions of UFO's and contact with the beings that fly them, I was very troubled. I
didn't want to believe it, but REASON wouldn't let me deny it. The Bible says, Come and Let us Reason together and a Christian should be able to
Reason with his Father(God).
Now, here are some verses from the Bible and then I will add some text from other ancient manuscripts. Actually, after looking through some sites,
it's so much evidence that this whole thread will be on UFO's in the Bible. Part III will cover other manuscripts, cave drawings and paintings.
First, here are some good reference points.
You can also google Bible-UFO connection and you will find some good websites.
First Clouds in the Bible. I submit that the Clouds in the Bible are UFO's. You have a cloud that hovers, glows in the dark, it takes people up
into the cloud and a voice comes out of the cloud.
Exodus 24:18 24:18 And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty
Moses went inside of the Cloud and the cloud took him up to the mountains.
Exodus 34:5 And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord.
The Lord descends in a Cloud.
Numbers 9: 22 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining hereon, the children of
Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journeyed.
The Cloud hovered over the tent of the congregation for up to a year at a time. The Journey was dependent on the flight of the spacecraft.
Isaiah 19:1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his
presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
The Lord rides in a Cloud.
Isaiah 60:8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows
This speaks for itself.
Luke 9:34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. 35 And there came a voice
out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
This is the Transfiguration on the Mount. They ENTER into the Cloud and a voice comes out of the Cloud.
11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them
which saw them. 12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their
enemies beheld them.
The Two Witnesses are taken up to Heaven in a Cloud.
This actually might have to be two parts because it's pretty long already, but this is very important.
Psalm 68:17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
Here it talks about the Chariots of God and remember Elijah was taken in a Chariot of Fire. Flying Chariots and Clouds so far and there's more.
Now, I want to talk about what Ezekial saw. First, we can say he saw something that could fly but it wasn't a creature. In those days there were
only clouds and birds in the sky and Ezekial described the flying craft in the terms of those times. What gives it away is that Ezekiel talks about
wheels. He knew what wheels looked like but he had never seen the flying craft before. There are no creatures with wheels. Josef Blumrich wanted to
debunk the book, the Chariots of the gods and he set out as a skeptic. Well, he was a NASA engineer and when he read Ezekials account he it sounded
like descriptions of things he had designed. Ezekiel actually knew that they were not creatures.
Ezekiel 1:4-5 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding F3 itself, and a brightness was about
it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. 5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four
living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
See, Ezekiel said the LIKENESS of four living creatures. He used creatures to describe the flying crafts because birds and clouds were the only thing
in the sky at the time. He goes on to say that these creatures(spaceships) didn't turn where they went. So they could fly from side to side without
turning in the direction that they were flying like a helicopter can do. He then talks about each ship having four wings that are joined to one
another like a helicopter and then he says:
Ezekiel 1:24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech,
as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.
Anyone who has taken a ride in a Helicopter knows this sound and if you havn't just watch a video of a helicopter and crank up the volume. I think
that these were either helicopters or a ship with helicopter like qualities.
When the ship stood it was on it's wheels and Ezekiel said the spirit of the creatures was in the wheels and that's because the ship seemed like it
was being guided by the wheels when it landed. You can read the first chapter of Ezekiel here.
This will be Part IIa and I will add Part IIb shortly.
I think that some people can't see these things because there belief system blinds them to the truth. Many atheist, secularist and some skeptics
start with the priori that UFO's and the beings who fly them can't exist. This is to protect the belief system because if you allow for these
things to exist, you then have to ask do they have anything to do with why we are here or do what about life after death? You can't let your
personal belief system block you from the truth and I can say based on the evidence that I don't have any REASONABLE doubt that these beings have
been visiting us and man has recorded them every step of the way through cave drawings, paintings, ancient manuscripts, pictures and video.
Remember the standards. I don't have a shadow of a doubt that God exists because of my Faith in His Son Jesus Christ. I don't have any Reasonable
doubt that these things exists based on the evidence.
THANK YOU, LORD JESUS!!
