Flying Vehicles and Advanced Technology in the Bible
This section of the work deals with the physical and flight characteristics of the flying vehicles in the Bible. It is important to understand that, since many of these descriptions occur in a place called "heaven", learning what the word means is crucial to proper understanding of the verses, in which, it appears. In the obscure language the translators used, heaven meant the sky.
What are they flying ?
The Lord Yhovah of the Old Testament, who became the Lord Jesus of the New Testament, is described as flying in thick clouds, swift clouds, bright clouds, dark clouds, white clouds, low clouds, great clouds, and fiery clouds. There are platforms, vessels, whirling chariots of fire, sky thrones, fiery horses, cherubims, thick darkness, great fire, whirlwinds, fiery wheels, pavilions, dark waters, storms, sky dwellings, rolls, and sanctuaries. Whether, or not, one believes these objects are actually flying vehicles that the God of the Bible lives in, appears with, travels in, and is considered the seat of his power is a matter of opinion. The fact that they do not appear without him or his ambassadors, and that, in most major appearances, he and other beings are clearly described as directly associated with these flying objects, is undeniable.
There are 362 verses describing natural and manmade objects as vehicles in the Bible.
The fact that the objects described in the Bible are controlled, flying craft, is borne out by the flight characteristics of those objects. In Bible text the objects associated with the Elohiym are shown to exhibit rapid, prolonged flight, they ascend and descend, and they hover for extended periods. If these objects were just ethereal images created by ethereal beings, these flight descriptions would have no relevance. The fact that the authors wrote about the flight routine of these objects is evidence that they have a distinct physical presence.
There are 162 verses describing the specific flight characteristics of vehicles in the Bible.
Who Is Commanding These High-Tech Flying Machines?
Two main beings are directly associated with the flying vehicles, the Elohiym, the gods, (See The Reality of God), and the Malak, the angels). Others include Archangels, Elders, Ministers, Saints, Watchers, and Men. There is another group which, though assumed to be living entities, are described in a manner that indicates they may be devices or machines. This group includes Cherubim, Seraphim, Living Creatures, and Beasts. Also presented are the beings that are associated with the modern UFO phenomenon by misplaced religious zeal; Satan and devils. A fleet of flying vehicles, described as the army, or Hosts, of Yhovah, appears several times and the importance of this fleet to the Biblical narrative is seriously underrated. Close encounters, from face to face conversations and beam-ups to meetings, are well documented in Biblical text and are a major part of many of the Bible's, more phenomenal, events. The nature of Yhovah in his human form as Jesus is a grossly neglected aspect of the Bible. Another questionable facet of accepted Biblical doctrine is the Holy Spirit as an individual member of a supreme triad. Is the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost a being or a spiritual force? And, do angels have wings, halos, and harps? If they do, the Bible doesn't mention this, nor does it mention a devil with horns, a pitchfork or a pointed tail.
Are These High Technology Vehicles Or Images?
Glowing and flashing lights, light beams, and guiding lights are the most frequently associated technological aspect of the flying objects of the Bible.
The technology of the Elohiym extends beyond flying vehicles and, as with those vehicles, light is an integral part of devices and equipment that are described in Biblical text. Some lights appear to be illumination that the vehicles project. Some have a function such as retrieving angels and other beings or objects from the ground. Still other lights are seen in equipment and devices attached to the main body of the vehicles. Lights are seen that are brighter than the sun and others are described as small glowing coals. As with modern lighting and UFO reports, lights are reported with consistent glows, while others flash. Most interesting are beams of light that are described as having transporting functions. This is a speculative explanation for why beings seem to appear from nowhere and possibly are not described as light beams when these sudden encounters happen during daylight hours. Again, it must be emphasized that the witnesses have never seen light produced by artificial means.

Close Encounter Dangers
God sets a danger perimeter:
Exodus 19:21 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the Lord to gaze, and many of them perish. 22 And let the priests also, which come near to the Lord, sanctify themselves, lest the Lord break forth upon them. 23 And Moses said unto the Lord, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it. 24 And the Lord said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the Lord, lest he break forth upon them. 25 So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.

Of all the paranormal topics in the Bible, the existence of UFOs seem to almost be a no-brainer. Many, many people gasp in disbelief when they hear this, and I think I know part of the reason why. When people think of UFOs, it seems they almost always think of little green (or grey) men with big black eyes who reportedly abduct people at night and perform hideous experiments on them. When I see toys and other items in stores that portray "aliens" or "UFOs" they always seems to picture these same little aliens.
If that WAS all that was out there, I'd have to agree that these little guys don't seem too nice, and they certainly don't seem to be very Biblical. When I first started looking into the whole topic I thought it was very refreshing to find that UFO researchers who are really into this type of stuff generally feel that this type of alien is actually only a small part of the extraterrestrial population. They usually refer to this particular group of aliens as the "greys."
So why do these greys get all the publicity? If you think about it, it's really not such a strange concept. Think about other things you see in our society. How many brand names of soda are there in the average grocery store? Probably dozens with many different flavors, but if you just believed what you see on TV, you might think that Coke and Pepsi were the only two soft drinks made. It's kind of the same thing with UFOs and aliens: you could say that the greys just seem to spend more money on advertising.
If there really are other aliens, you might be wondering why these groups don't "advertise" too. Why are the greys the only ones pictured in all the comic books and TV shows and shown on all the merchandise? Maybe the question we should be asking is "Where do we go to get the other side of the story?" Since this probably isn't the first article you've read on this web site you won't be surprised that I wanted to see what the Bible says about the topic.
I think that if you just look at what's actually in the Bible with an open mind, you can find dozens of UFO accounts. The nice thing about doing this is that it can help you see that there is a positive alternative to the "grey" abducting type aliens. People often ask if the aliens are angels or demons as if they can only be one or the other. Isn't it entirely possible - and actually more likely - that they aren't all exactly the same and that some are good and some are bad? Fortunately, all of the Biblical UFOs seem to be working for the good guys.
Now I want to be perfectly clear that I'm not trying to take anything away from the power of God. I'm not saying that God needs UFOs to perform miracles for him. But I do think that life exists outside our planet, and I think that God gives these beings the free will choice and opportunity to work with him the same way he gives us the choice to do positive things in our everyday lives.
I think the activities of these "good" aliens are actually similar to those of missionaries that many churches send overseas. They make contact in an honest effort to help people get a more accurate picture of God. If this is the case, is it really so far-fetched to believe that these off-planet missionaries often use UFOs as tools to perform certain tasks?
Here you will find information regarding human evolution.
Did we come from apes? Yes!
Why does almost every religion from ancient to modern have stories about the "gods" coming down from "heaven" and breeding with the humans?
Why do they all have a "Noah" story?
The notion that humankind was created by some type of extraterrestrial genetic manipulation, according to some researchers, is the actual basis of the creation stories found in the ancient Sumerian records and the later Hebrew Scriptures. This idea is set out in detail in the work of Israeli scholar Zecharia Sitchin, who uses the Sumerian records to argue that modern homo sapiens were created by beings from outer space called "Nefilim". He believes that the Nefilim created humans by genetically modifying homo erectus, then mated with them and argued over what to do with them.
In 1989 Zecharia Sitchin's radical hypothesis was taken a major step further with the publication of the book The Gods of Eden, appropriately subtitled: The chilling truth about extraterrestrial infiltration - and the conspiracy to keep humankind in chains. The author, a Californian lawyer going by the nom de plume "William Bramley" brought together all the major themes found in earlier ‘ancient astronaut’ research and merged them with a unique ‘conspiracy view of history.’ Bramley’s thesis, shocking and confronting to nearly all established popular beliefs, is:
The idea that human kind is the product of genetic engineering carried out by extraterrestrials from outside our tiny planet challenges both Darwinian evolution and creationism. Have the dogmas of science and religion blinded us to the truth of our origins?
The Christian church proclaims that a supposedly all-knowing, all-powerful ‘God’ created our first parents from ‘mud’, in much the same way as a potter moulds clay. Only when Adam and Eve broke their Creator's rules were they subject to pain, sickness and death. By disobeying this ‘God’, they also condemned their offspring — all humanity — to be ‘sinners’.
If we interpret the Bible literally, regarding it as an infallible historical document, we are introduced to a creator ‘God’ (Jehovah/Yahweh) who, by his own admission, is jealous, wrathful and full of vengeance. The fear of the "Lord" (Jehovah) is constantly stressed throughout the Old Testament. He is expected to reward those who worship him and are not delinquent in their observance of the ritual law, by gratifying their worldly desires for material gains and worldly power.One cannot help but note that this cruel, bloodthirsty, and selfish ‘God’ bears a striking resemblance to the capricious gods of Sumeria.
This all too human ‘God’, according to Genesis, took a walk in the "cool of the day," unaware that his prize humans had spoiled his creation by eating the ‘forbidden fruit’. After this, having chased the first human couple out of Paradise, he threatens their descendants with his wrath until the day when he drowned the whole world in a flood.
This ‘God’ Jehovah, as the historian Gibbon observed in The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, is a "being liable to passion and error, capricious in his favor, implacable in his resentment, meanly jealous of his superstitious worship, and confining his partial providence to a single people and to this transitory life."
Research indicates that the Hebrew Bible, far from being an infallible historical text authored by the Supreme Being, is a heavily revised compilation of at least two entirely separate works. Fused together in the Book of Genesis are two separate works known to scholars as the northern "E" and southern "J" traditions, which are supplemented by additional revisions and inserts. In "E" (the Elohist passages) resides the pre-Judaean tradition of the northern peoples who exalted the Most High God El and the subordinate Elohim (Shining Ones). The "J" or "Jehovist" passages describe a totally alien entity, the evil and contending Jehovah (YHWH), the "Lord". According to Max J. Dimont in Jews, God and History: "In the 5th century B.C. Jewish priests combined portions of the ‘J’ and ‘E’ documents, adding a little handiwork of their own (known as the pious fraud), which are referred to as the ‘JE’ documents, since God in these passages is referred to as ‘Jehovah Elohim’ (translated as ‘Lord God’)."
This is why within the Bible we encounter contradictory and conflicting images of the Supreme God. We find Jehovah, a tribal god, masquerading as the Supreme Being. The first chapters of Genesis describe an awesome struggle between two rival powers. There is the Most High God and His Elohim who create through their own manifest spirit; and the malevolent Lord God, Jehovah, who created a synthetic being composed of dirt. Jehovah is actually Satanael, a Shining One who rose in revolt against the Supreme God. Though later called the One God, the early Hebrews knew Jehovah as only one of many Elohim.
They quoted the Song of Moses to distinguish between the Most High and the usurper Jehovah:
The Gnostic Christians of the early centuries AD, who preserved the original teachings of Jesus, distinguished between the Heavenly Father and the god of the Hebrew Bible. Jehovah (YHWH) was not the Father revealed by Jesus. While the Hebrew Bible revealed a tribal god, the God of Jesus was the universal Supreme Being of all humanity. The Hebrew god was a god of fear, Jesus’ Heavenly Father was a God of love. In fact, Jesus never referred to the Heavenly Father as Jehovah. The Gnostic Gospel of Peter states that the Hebrews were under the delusion that they knew the Supreme Being, but they were ignorant of him, and knew only a false god, an impostor, whose true nature was unknown to them.
The Gnostics, based on their thorough study of the Book of Genesis, exposed Jehovah as Satanael the Demiurge, the creative power of this fallen material world, who is hostile to the Supreme Being. One Gnostic teacher told how the unknown Father made the angels, the archangels, powers and dominions. The world, however, and everything in it, was made by seven particular angels, and man too is a work of the angels. These angels he described as rebellious feeble artisans.
Saturninus (90-150), who established an important Gnostic community in Syria, taught that the One True God, the Heavenly Father revealed by Jesus, dwells in the highest Realm of Light. Between this transcendent Realm of Light and our finite world exist vast intermediate hierarchies of archangels, angels and spiritual powers; the builders of the universe and the fashioners of man. In foolishness and vanity Satanael rebelled against the Realm of Light, leading astray a company of angelic beings. Satanael and his minions contrived to trap spiritual beings in physical bodies. Saturninus told how Satanael’s creator angels endeavored to create physical human bodies in the image of spiritual beings. This way they planned to keep spiritual beings permanently attached to physical bodies.
In Saturninus’ account of creation, Satanael’s creator angels could only form a primitive android. It was necessary to animate it with a spirit being from the upper realms. Satanael therefore lured down into his soulless universe a light-spark from the heavenly realms and trapped it within the material body of Adam. According to Apelles, another early Gnostic teacher, spirit beings were enticed from their place in the heavenly realms by the opportunity of physical experience, through the machinations of Jehovah, after which he bound them in bodies of flesh. Generation succeeded generation, as the light-sparks took embodiment in human forms. Soon these spiritual beings became so engrossed in the material world that they lost all awareness of their origin in the Realm of Light. They found themselves captured in the world of the Demiurge Satanael. Indeed, they became slaves to the malevolent creator angels and the things of their world.
The Catholic Church, by accepting the Hebrew Bible in its literal interpretation, mistook the tribal god Jehovah for the Supreme Being. In imitation of old Israel, the Church set about establishing a political and religious empire. Only the Gnostic Christians stood in their way. The Gnostics quickly found themselves viciously denounced as heretics, their sacred books banned and burnt. Thanks to the miraculous discovery of several Gnostic scriptures at Nag Hammadi in Egypt, just fifty years ago, we can gain a better insight into the Gnostic Christian communities of the early centuries AD.
Adam is said to declare:
The Gnostics understood that there are many different orders of beings. Their writings refer to numerous hierarchies of spiritual entities, both of the Light and of the Darkness. These beings not only move in the subtle frequencies, but can also take form in the physical dimension. Like the Essenes and Jesus, the Gnostics recognized the ability of "angels" to embody themselves in the flesh. The fallen angels were most often termed rulers or Archons, and the chief Archon known by various names such as Satanael, Jehovah, Ildabaoth, Sacklas, Satan, Sammael, etc. They possessed the power to create bodies and believed themselves to be ‘gods’. As a consequence of their degraded state, they are hostile to humanity and attempt to prevent mankind from attaining to spiritual liberation.
John A. Keel, author of Disneyland of the Gods, and Our Haunted Planet, argues that the late 20th century interest in extraterrestrials, aliens and UFOs is just a modern day attempt to come to terms with the same forces other peoples and cultures once identified as "demons" or "fallen angels":
The notion that the human body is the work of malevolent creator angels remarkably parallels the idea that extraterrestrials engaged in genetic engineering to ‘create’ homo sapiens. Are we dealing with exactly the same phenomenon? Did the Gnostics know the truth about Man’s real origin and the unseen powers that seek to keep human beings in bondage? Are the malevolent creator angels who, say the Gnostics, stole spiritual beings and trapped them in physical bodies, the same as the extraterrestrial creator gods of Sumeria?
Consider the following observation of a modern Gnostic scholar, Dr. Stephen Hoeller:
The creator angels or Archons are also characterized as terrible powers or forces of negativity and illusion. They are cosmic Prison Warders seeking to keep their human charges bound to the Earth. Caught up in the illusions of material existence, Man believes he is just a body and he cannot grasp the truth of his origin. This condition perpetuates spiritual blindness, leaving human kind in captivity to the Prison Warders.
However, the Gnostics never ceased from proclaiming that Man’s True Being is not his body, and the material world is definitely not his true home. Man is a spiritual being and his purpose is to realize his higher Self, that light-spark exiled in the physical body. His destiny is to return to the Realm of Light, his true home beyond the stars.
We must be reawakened to our origin, where we came from, how we became trapped on this planet, and how we can achieve liberation. The Gnostics urge us to escape from the trap of the world and open our eyes to our true origin.
In May of 2008 a startling proclamation was issued by the Vatican.
For the first time in it's two thousand years history the Catholic Church acknowledge the possibility that intelligent life could exist in other planets.
Is the Vatican preparing us for what will be proven in the not so distant future ?
