Spirits in the Sky
The Big Five Encounters of the Bible
There are five encounters described in detail in the Bible, several instances of men being transported by or entering into stationary or flying vehicles, many direct encounters with vehicles in the air, conversations from the sky, or beings on the ground. The five extended encounters require more than a cursory examination and should each be studied in their entirety...
This encounter starts with a conversation from a glowing vehicle on the ground, follows the high-tech
harassment of the reluctant Pharaoh, and Hebrew's flight from Egypt, Moses' entry into the vehicle, and then records
the forty year wanderings of the nation of Israel as it is directly led by aerial guidance. Scores of descriptions
and encounters with flying vehicles, advanced technology, and space age weaponry are recorded during this journey. The Exodus section of this site covers the individual instances, but a complete read of the book is worthwhile.
The Beginning of the 40-Year Exodus Encounter
The first encounter that Moses has with God appearing directly to him is from the famous account of the strange "burning bush". He was amazed because what he is is seeing seems to be a bramble on fire but the bramble is not being consumed. (...behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.) God then begins to speak from inside this glowing bramble-like object....behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed... I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt....And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush.....Exodus 3:2-4 ). This is similar to the description of another strange object encountered later (And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel. Exodus 24:17) It is during this encounter that Moses is given the commission to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt.
A Direct Encounter with Yhovah
In the 19th Chapter of the Exodus the people experience a prolonged encounter with a great craft about two weeks after the food miracle and warding of an unsuccessful attack by Amalek the chief of an Idumean tribe at Rephidim. (The defeat of Amalek is a miracle in itself and involves what seems to be Moses using some form of psychokenesis. Exodus 17:10-12) Yhovah demands that a strict perimeter be established around mount Sanai, where the vehicle is about to land and the people are warned that breaching that perimeter could cause death to humans and animals. The craft is so huge it causes the million-plus people witnessing to tremble at the bright lights and terrible sounds coming from it. Moses goes up the mountain and into the vehicle and Yhovah reinforces his warning about the deadly perimeter. Moses goes back down the mountain, warns the people, and Yhovah begins to speak directly to the people and giving them his commandments from the vehicle
Moses is Transformed, and the Long Journey Begins
While Moses is gone the attention span of the people proves to be very short and they build a pagan altar, which Moses breaks in anger. After this discretion is dealt with Moses returns to the vehicle and Yhovah makes him rewrite the edicts and he brings these new tablets to the people. Moses' face is glowing so intensely after the prolonged meeting with Yhovah that the people are afraid to come near him and he is forced to cover his face with as veil. Moses oversees the building of the tabernacle and the ark and the vehicle leads the Hebrew nation through the wilderness for the next 40 years.
Elijah's and Elisha's Whirlwinds and Chariots of Fire
Elijah and Elisha encounter a great number of chariots of fire in the sky and Elijah is taken up into a chariot of fire by a whirlwind. This occurs in the face of confrontation with an army pursuing them, which they defeat and take prisoner with the help of this strange fleet. This can be found in the second and sixth chapters of 2 Kings.
Ezekiel's Whirlwind and Great Fire
The first and tenth chapters of Ezekiel and other verses describe at least two separate encounters with the vehicle, as well as face-to-face encounters with beings and divine abductions. The close nature of these encounters provides the most thorough description of the physical devices, brilliance, and material composition of the flying craft of Yhovah. This can be found in the first and tenth chapters of Ezekiel.
The incident commonly called the Transfiguration is an account of an encounter Jesus and three apostles have with a bright hovering craft and two "men" from that craft. Transfiguration refers to the change of the appearance of Jesus that the apostles witness as he is having this encounter. The question almost never asked is, what caused this change? If one examines the entire incident, a rather familiar scenario develops. Jesus is up on a mountain just before his crucifixion, late at night, and the apostles are awakened from a deep sleep. There is a bright object overhead and suddenly Jesus turns a radiant white. Two men appear out of the object and talk to Jesus about his impending death. These men then are taken back up into the object and a voice is broadcast from the object. The answer to what caused the change in appearance is a light beam from that glowing object, the beam that transported the two men to and from the ground. This the same light, "brighter than the sun", that Paul speaks of in Acts 22. The same effect is seen when a helicopter shines its search light on the ground, everything turns white. And, the same effect is seen in pictures and movies of encounters with UFOs. The place of the transfiguration was probably Mount Hermon and not Mount Tabor as is commonly thought. This encounter is described by each of the three Gospel authors, Matthew 17:1-8; Mark 9:2-8; Luke 9:28-36. Forty years after the event Peter recalls it, 2 Peter 1:16-18.
The Revelation Of John
From the beginning to the end, the vision of the future given to John is a high-tech, high-flying scenario. It is his testimony of the end times from the perspective that Jesus shows him, complete with a description of the inside of the command vessel. John has a front row seat during the conquest of Earth and the defeat of the armies of mankind that Satan has amassed to fight the Second Coming. This can be found in the first chapter of The Revelation.
