Are there UFO's in the Bible?Could angels be ET's?I think it is plausible.I don't think the theory is any more far fetched than anything else,or
any other view in the Bible.
The word "Heaven is a translation from the Hebrew word "shamayim"which is defined as "the sky".The word "sky" is only mentioned a few times in
the bible.Anything that comes from the sky in the Bible-wind,rain,fire hail,chariots,etc all come from the "heavens".
You need to rember that in the 1600's that the Bible was translated for King James of England.He was part of the Royal court.They spoke a very formal
version of English.You was thee,raiment was clothing,the sky was heaven.So in almost every case Heaven meant the sky,not the pearly gates.
We also need to keep in mind that at the time of the writings in the Bible there were airplanes,jets satellites,or weather ballons.There were no
street lights or neon lights to dull the sky.So we must assume that that the descriptions are fairly accurate.
These are a few times that UFO's may have been mentioned.
A Glowing Object Passes Over
15:17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those
This is the first indication that a glowing, flying object is associated with the Elohiym. The word 'passed' is more properly rendered 'passed
over'. Furnace = fire pot. Smoking = vapor. Lamp = shining. Burning = fire. So, what is being said is that something resembling a shining,
vaporous firepot passed over after dark.
19:24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven.
Yhovah drops fiery substances and objects from the sky as a means of destruction. These acts are recorded many times in Biblical text. The word
'brimstone means sulphur or sulphur-like, obviously relating to the burning effect of the substance.
9:24 And there came a fire out from before the Lord, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people
saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.
A fire-like beam comes from Yhovah and consumes the alter and everything on it.
These are just a few of the things found in the Bible.There are also "dark objects","spinning objects"and "chariots".There is also "in flight
","hovering,"desending" and so forth.
Now is all this some mystical force of God?Are they UFO's ?Is God an alien?Are angels really aliens.I think it is a possiblity. It certainly is not
any more far fetched than anything else in the Bible.
