Are UFOs The Clouds, Angels,
And Heaven Of The Bible?

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 a 'cloud.'
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 Bible:
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 13:21.13)
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." (Exodus 19:9.16)
"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 at Christmas.
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 visitors are 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 actual visits by messengers, visitors, watchers, ET, angels, or what ever you choose to call them. They are given credit for bringing gifts such as writing, and morality based on the Ten Commandments to Earth. Thousands of books have been written describing their interactions with Earth. If you visit the great temples and churches around the world, almost all have the story of an angel who oversaw their construction. Often there are similar stories of 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. So remember when you enjoy Christmas it all started with an angel. Here are some more 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, and a cloud took him out of their sight." (Acts 1:9.18) Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to 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 them, 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 been full filled it becomes exciting reading. "Have a Merry Christmas!"
