51. WHAT ABOUT ... UFO’s , Aliens, and Other Strange Mysteries? The Bible starts with ‘In the beginning God..." (Genesis 1:1). And the Godhead are the first beings of existence. All things proceeded into existence from them, and from no other source.
In Colossians 1:16-18 we read:
"For by Him (Jesus Christ) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, dominions, or principalities, or powers, all things were created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist."
All things were created ‘by Him’. That means that whatever is out there, flying saucers, aliens, strange unhuman-like creatures, whether visible (fleshly) or invisible (spirit, ghostly-like beings) are created by our Lord Jesus Christ. There are no surprises to Him. If some ‘alien’ creatures landed on the White House lawn, it would be no surprise to Jesus, for He is the creator of all.
The Bible, being the book authored by God, and written down by prophets who spoke for Him, should be a key book to search, in studying for explanation for whatever is out there. To ignore this book, and listen to mental patients, and true scientific reports, both describe encounters, and then try to determine what is factual, and what is misinformation or delusions, and which is real, is foolish. The Bible should be our standard of authority. The Bible does not tell us all we wish to know, but if someone’s account, is in variance with the book of books, then we take the Bible’s word for it. If the Bible is fully truth, it can help us weed out the false and the delusions, it can then help us sort out the remaining, and put it into a harmonious scenario, trusting then the conclusions that are reached.
Notice in Colossians 1:16-18, that it mentions two planets, earth and heaven, and says that all things were created for one of those two places, both the invisible and the visible world (to our mortal eyes) was created for those, and on those two planets. None other sources of creation are shown, and all were created by and for Jesus Christ. Therefore, any creature, alien, monster, etc, out there, is source in Him. And there are only two planets in the Lord’s plan.
As we study the events, and visitations of creatures to this earth, all the sightings and encounters with strange beings, we shall find that the truth will be found in the Bible, and perversions of what the Bible teaches accounts for many confusions. For instance, angels co-habited with women, as recorded in Genesis 6, II Peter, Jude, etc. These ‘giant’ beings were a result of the beings of two planets having a union, that was not encouraged by God. The beings created began as giants, and later became other strange like creatures. They were not directly created by Jesus, but the progenitors of such were, and the resulting beings, were perverted mixtures of the two cultures.
Angels in that early time, created by mixing dna of animals, with themselves or with humans, and brought into being some strange creatures. These are not ‘creations’ of God, but were resulting perversions of what God had created. Science of our day, is reaching the level where they are experimenting with mixing human and animal dna, of cloning, of genetic engineering... and this was already done millennia ago. We still encounter beings made of previous experimentation. Many ‘alien’ encounters have brought to us stories of seeing such genetic experiments, and the many malformed, miserable attempts that are still going on.
Sexual encounters with ‘alien-like’ creatures; eggs, fetuses, and even babies taken from mothers, sperm collection from men, egg harvesting from women, children being abducted that were born mysteriously to women, etc. are common among the encounters reported. This shows that the work began with the ‘angels’ of the pre-flood days, to co-habitate and produce genetically strange beings, still continues.
"Though faith, we understand, that the worlds, were created by the Word of God, so that all things were made of things which do not appear."
All things used in such experiments, were made by the Lord Jesus. Not all things made from such creations, are part of God’s plan. But still the source of true creation is Jesus, and the devil and evil mankind, work to pervert God’s beautiful plan.
On this earth, created by God, the devil and his fallen angels, the true aliens, have made many perversions. Among them, of course, is the perversion of mankind. No longer able to live forever, but under death and a curse, sinful man works in a cursed world. Animals attack mankind, weather is contrary to mankind, sickness, disease, aging, pain, sorrow, etc. are all parts of the perversion of the devil put onto things of this world. Amidst his perversions, there are some that are quite confusing, and mind-boggling to mankind. Let us speak of some of the mysterious and strange things we find on this earth.
Crop circles started appearing in England in the 1970's. Large circles of flattened grain appeared, seeming to be some writing, some message from someone... but who? Actually the first reported circles appeared in Australia in 1966 (Tully, Queensland, Australia, near Horseshoe Lagoon). The messages have grown more and more complex, some proving to be fakery by their obvious staged efforts. Some are so complex, that no one could reproduce them, if they tried, in the precision of interweaving of the stalks, of their rapidness of development, or in their undisturbing of surrounding areas. In 1991, Doug Bower and Dave Chorley confessed to making them for 15 years. Yet, there are crop circles around the world, and the fake, counterfeit ones, have been easy to spot. What of the ones they could not have had expertise to make? What of the ones around the world, so complex and intricate, that no one knows how to reproduce them?
Cattle are found dead, with soft body parts (as eyes, lips, udders, and sex organs) removed surgically. The blood has been drained, and no one understands who and why this is being done, worldwide, with such surgical precision. "Snippy", an appaloosa pony, (real name, "Lady") was the first recorded such mutilation case (1967). Who is after the blood and body parts, and why?
The Bermuda Triangle
The triangular shaped area of the ocean, from south Florida, to Puerto Rico, to Bermuda, is an area where for ages, strange sights have been seen, ships and planes have mysteriously disappeared, ufo’s have been seen. What is this area? Why these mysterious occurrences?
Ghost lights, spook lights, foo fighters, green fireballs, marfa lights, and the Phoenix lights of 1997... have made many question their source and purpose. Are these angels in movement? Are they some kind of vehicle of flight? Some seem to be found in only one location, as the Hornet Light of Joplin, Missouri, or the Brown Mt. Light of North Carolina. These will be discussed and explained in subsequent chapters.
Skulls have been found, as those photographed by Robert Connelly on his trip around the world. He was collecting materials about ancient civilizations. He labeled them ‘pre-modern’ (Peru), ‘conehead’ (Africa), and ‘jack-o-lantern’. These oddly, unhuman-like shaped heads are not the product of ‘head-binding’. The capacity in head binding is not changed, but the capacity of these heads is definitely much larger than human heads. The largest human head ever measured was 1980 ccm. These skulls that seem ‘alien’, are 2300 to 2500 ccm. Many human heads are only half that size. Size does not always indicate intelligence, for Anatole France was only 1100 ccm, and he was a brilliant writer, and the largest human skull measured was 1980 ccm and belonged to a retarded man.
signs of life having been, or still on Mars...
The strange rock carving of a face on Mars has shocked many, and then also the pyramids on Mars which make the ones on earth look like small replicas. Many suppose that the moon of Mars called Phobos, is actually an artificial moon, harboring a huge military base. Is that true? Could there be beings on or about Mars? Where did they come from, if there were created beings only placed on two planets, earth and heaven??? On three planets, other than earth, there have been bright lights seen shining from the poles. Those planets have central balls of fire, within, that shine out of the polar openings. The white of the poles is cloud, fog from the warm atmosphere exiting the polar regions. The white can disappear within 24 hours, far too fast to be melting snow. Probes, satellites, and the like suddenly disappear when filming Mars. Strange ship-like structures have been photographed by Russian satellites. The mystery deepens, and there should be answers, and the Bible is the main place we should look to find answers, for God is the Creator of all things in the universe, so He knows, and has known.

Disinformation, is an intelligence tactic, used to protect the truth from being accepted, by diluting it with absurd stories, fictional accounts, false and lying witnesses, etc. By polluting the stories out there, with many ‘off the wall’, and idiotic suppositions, the ones who do not want the truth believed, cause many to ‘throw out the baby with the bath water." Much of the information to be gleaned from multitudes of books written, thousands of web sites, and hundreds of thousands of witnesses is pure fantasy, lies, idiotic malarky.
This ‘misinformation’ is designed to make the searcher for truth to discount all that does get spoken, even truth. If the whole is thrown out, because much of what is out there is laughable, then some who seek to keep others in ignorance succeed. We must learn to dig, seek, and sort through the good and the bad, and discern which is which.
The Bible is all truth, and we can start with it as our first test of truth. If something is contrary to what the Bible teaches, we choose the Bible. That requires therefore, that we know what the Bible does teach, and sort through that first, getting the proper understanding of it, will then lead us to truth, and help us determine what is error in the multitudinous reports on mysterious things.
Aliens, or terrestrials???
There have been oft discussed some different alien types...
Grays. .. small humanoids with large heads, large eyes, usually of a light grey color... Reptoids... . reptilian looking humanoids, with slanted eyes, reptilian skin, sometimes with six fingers per hand.... Nordics ... blonde, blue eyed humanoids, sometimes seen helping reptoids or grays... Dwarves.. . In Europe and South America, there are often seen these short humanoids, some being very hairy. Nephillim... giant goliath-like humanoids, from 8 to 15 feet tall, sometimes called Annunaki. These were believed to be ancient astronauts, but actually the Bible shows them to be the product of ancient aliens (angels) who cohabited with women of earth, creating this race of giants (Genesis 6, Jude 6, II Peter, Enoch... tell us of these.) Yemin... big foot, yeti, sasquatch, abominable snowmen have been seen in most every part of the world, and each area has a special name for them. What is their source, where are their hiding places???
The Bible does tell us of ancient astronauts, and Enoch tells us they first landed on Mt. Hermon. These were fallen, evil angels, who in disobedience to God, came to this earth and brought superior knowledge to it, and attempted to corrupt the plan of God here on this earth. Erich von Daniken claims that archaeological evidence shows that the earth was once visited by aliens. This is true, and only confirms what the Bible, Enoch, and other books have told us for millennia. Zecharia Stitchin also has found much evidence amidst the teachings and historical records of many nations to confirm this.
Flight JAL1628, a Japan airlines 747, was followed by an UFO over Alaska in 1986....
At Loring AFB, in Maine, some unusual UFO events occurred on October 27, 1975...
In Mansfield, Ohio, Lawrence J. Coyne and others on a National Guard helicopter had a close brush with an UFO in 1973...
Captain Thomas Mantell, a pilot, crashed near Fort Knox, Kentucky, while chasing a UFO...
Lt. Felix Moncla, an Air Force pilot, and Lt. R.R. Wilson, his navigator, disappeared while chasing a UFO over Lake Superior in 1953.
In Portage Co., Ohio, police of several counties and cities, chased a UFO over 40 miles in 1966.
In Tehran, Iran, there is a well documented UFO sighting on September 19, 1976...
The list could go on for volumes of books.... but these and some other well-documented sightings confirm that there are things out there, being seen, filmed, followed... What are they??? Who possesses such things?
Some people have had experiences of being abducted from cars, beds, etc, by so-called ‘aliens’. Sometimes they remember such events, and sometimes they do not, unless under hypnosis.
The Allagash abductions tell us that four men in 1976, while fishing on the Allagash waterway in Maine, were abducted by ‘aliens’.
Joe Simonton, a Wisconsin farmer, claimed to have been given pancakes by UFO occupants in 1961.
Antonio Villas-Boros, a Brazilian farmer, claimed to have been taken on board by a UFO, and seduced by a female ‘alien’.
Travis Walton, supposedly was an abductee by a UFO from Apache National Forest in 1975, and the movie ‘Fire in the Sky" was made concerning the events of that story...
This list too, could fill many, many volumes... and there does seem to be some evidence to show that some abductions occur.... What are these??? Why would ‘aliens’ abduct, test, probe, experiment... on humans?
Roswell, New Mexico, ... Captured aliens???
In Roswell, New Mexico, a sheep rancher, William ‘Mac’ Brazel discovered some silvery debris from a supposed-crashed UFO in July, 1947. Major Jesse Marcel was sent to investigate, and took the debris. Reportedly several ‘grays’ were at the crash site. Many lies and disinformation has been circulated concerning this event. Though it was stated by General Roger Ramey that it was simply a ‘weather balloon’, before he died, he retracted such lie, and said it was ‘not of this earth.’ The debate still rages. In 1995, the Air Force said it was part of "Project Mogul", a balloon train, and radar reflectors. Yet, that story has since fallen into disrepute by obvious errors in facts. A man we will call ‘Rusty’ was chief inspector of the investigation. Now in hiding, and with a changed name, he reports that there were three aliens found at the site. Two died in the impact, and the third was shot at the scene.
Reportedly, there are over 1500 alien corpses, and an alien zoo, of hybrids in Dulce, New Mexico, in a huge underground site. Many discount such reports, and mock them. Much disinformation has been supplied by those who do not want truth to come out. Confusing as it may be, there is a truth to discover.
UFO’s, ships, cigars, etc...
Some cigar shaped blimp like ships have been seen. These are usually about 660 feet long, 165 feet wide, with many white lights on them. The very bright lights on the back are noticeable. These are oblong in shape, and noiseless... They seem to travel in clouds, often very slowly, but can suddenly accelerate to great speeds. These have been seen world wide, and often the silvery saucer shaped vehicles have been seen flying from them, or near to them. Are these some sort of ‘mother ship’? What are the saucers, the cigar shaped blimp-like ships? Do we have such ships at ‘area 51?
These questions, these items of curious mystery, will be examined in detail, with the Bible as our main ‘stamp of approval, or disapproval...’ We need to understand what God wants us to know on these subjects...
There is a vast of information, and we will try here, to examine, confirm or deny, many theories.stay tuned

THE UNIVERSE OF ONLY TWO HABITABLE PLANETS
Many are needlessly disturbed at the thought of 7 heavens, but the teaching here is not that there are seven abodes in heaven, but seven different locations in which spirits dwell. We do not disagree with this concept in Christianity, but when the term "heaven" is applied, many put up walls before learning what is being taught.
In Ephesians 6:12 we are told that there are "heavenly places" and this refers to places where unseen forces operate. Ephesians 1:3-20 tells us that we have "spiritual blessings in heavenly places..." and that Christ is "set at His (God's) own right hand in heavenly places." We can someday "sit together in heavenly places. (Eph. 2:6).
The word "heaven" in the Hebrew is "shamayim" which is the plural of "shameh" meaning "lofty place." It is never used in the Old Testament in a singular form. Judaism identified seven heavens referring to seven abodes of angels and spirit beings. God is in all (Psalms 139:7, I Kings 8:27). Yet, the abode that we think of as "heaven" in Christianity today, is the sixth heaven, which is the planet on which God dwells, and His throne room therein is the "seventh heaven". The other heavens of the seven are about earth, and in outer space.
Paul was taken to a trip to the "third heaven." This is
paradise which is within the earth in a place known as sheol.
II Corinthians 12:1-4
"...I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord... Whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell, such an one
caught up to the third heaven... How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words (rhema) which is not lawful for me to utter."
This was not the heaven wherein God dwells to which Paul was taken. It was "paradise", which is "paradeisios" in Greek, meaning an "orchard" or "forest" and is used in the Septuagint to refer to the Garden of Eden which is in Sheol. So if "paradise" is the "third heaven" what are the other heavens. Isaiah here in his "APOCALYPSE" shows us the answer.
The Jewish concept of the universe are most adequately revealed
in the THE APOCALYPSE OF ISAIAH chapters - 2:27-3:4
THE SEVEN HEAVENS
THE FIRST HEAVEN (1:13)
This refers to the atmosphere about us here on earth, the air from the clouds down... wherein we dwell, and so do many demonic forces, many guardian angels of the saints, etc. It is that which is above the ground upon which we walk. There is a "Throne angel" in charge of this for God, and there are good and evil angels present in this place. The good angels and hopefully, we, the saints, are giving praise to God Who is in the "seventh heaven" (1:17) as we dwell in this "first heaven."
THE SECOND HEAVEN (1:18)
The second heaven is the atmosphere above the clouds, and is an area in which there is always a war raging between the evil angels, and the good angels regarding God sending help to mankind.
In the book of Daniel we read of Michael trying to bring a message from God to Daniel, and was hindered in this warfare from getting the message through for 21 days. Another angel finally came to help Michael. The war rages, but there is a "Throne angel" in the midst of this heaven.
THE THIRD HEAVEN (1:24)
This is the heaven to which Paul was taken and he saw there things that he was not allowed to tell us. It was a glorious experience for him. This place, according to Paul, and according to tradition, is paradise, which is in Sheol, which is within the earth. Hell is also in the lowest part of sheol, and according to Ezekiel, Enoch, and others, Eden is also within the earth.
Here in the Apocalypse of Isaiah we are told that there is a "Throne angel" there, who obviously would only be there if there were other good and also some evil angels within. In the "abyss" which is between paradise and hell, there are many evil angels and demons bound, and awaiting either judgment day, or awaiting the tribulation period wherein some will be released (one time 200,000,000 come to earth from that area).
At one time, as in Enoch's time, and before, much was known about this place, for Adam and Eve dwelt there originally before their expulsion. Now, and in the time of Isaiah, we are told here, that "the memory of that area is forgotten by mankind." Then Isaiah asked why are not the details of that place known to mankind, and the angel answers: "It is not important for mankind to know of this place now, but many in that place know well what is happening on earth."
Paul was not even allowed to tell us some things he saw and heard there, and yet, Moses, who was in paradise just before the Mt. of Transfiguration event with Jesus and Elijah, came and talked with Jesus about the things about to occur when Jesus came to Jerusalem the next time. So knowledge there of earthly events was well known.
THE FOURTH HEAVEN (2:28)
This heaven is simply the solar system in which our little planet exists. It is a greater in size place than the former heavens. There are good and evil angels therein, and they are ruled by a "Throne angel" in the midst. The good angels praise the Lord, and the evil angels glorify Satan. All the angels therein were praising someone. The volume of the good angels' praises was greater than the volume of the evil angels... Somehow this strikes me as different than here on earth, where the volume in the rock concerts dedicated to a band singing about the devil somehow is different than the volume in many sanctuaries wherein people sing hymns barely above a whisper (remember hearing that kind of song service???). Yet, the good angels in the fourth heaven know that God is not disturbed by volume... And you will note later that the praise in all the heavens to God is heard and seen in the seventh heaven where God Himself enjoys it.
THE FIFTH HEAVEN (2:32-37)
This heaven is the regions of outer space beyond our solar system. This is a vast area, beyond mankind's ability to understand. The angels in that area are greater than angels in the former areas, and their praises are also of greater volume. These heavenly choirs of good angels praised so magnificently, that Isaiah even joined in as he listened. Praise is contagious, and worship that is Spirit inspired will encourage many to also worship. Therefore, we are encouraged to worship God when we gather together. Evil angels exist in this fifth heaven, and they worship their leader, but they are "drowned out" by the good angels... Surely, the Lord would like us on earth to do the same... but here in this first heaven, the praises for the earthly, for the carnal, and for the non-spiritual things is much greater than any volume we have as yet produced for God!!!! Perhaps the rocks are about to cry out!
THE SIXTH HEAVEN (3:1-28)
This heaven has an "atmosphere" unlike the former two heavens... It is the planet which we know as "heaven" and there on that planet God dwells. It has "glory" such as not seen in the former heavens. We are told in the Bible that God has prepared there, things our minds have been unable to even conceive. The angels there have the greater aura of power and magnificence than angels in the former heavens. Their worship was "holy and spectacular".
Evil angels are not present there at all, and they could scarcely get a chorus of praise to the devil started there so close to God Himself. There is therefore no need for a "Throne angel" there. The Lord Himself rules here, and the evil angels have fled that place, for they are in direct opposition from Him. We are told to resist the devil, and he will flee from us also...
In the midst of this "awesome" worship, Isaiah joins in... and he worshipped the Trinity... Imagine, if you can, the very planet of God, and wherein the light of the Lord Himself abounds that its light makes the light of the other heavens seem like darkness, and the natural thing to speak of is not football games, politics, etc... but to praise and worship the Almighty God.
Isaiah does not want to leave this place, it is so magnificent and awesome that Isaiah begs to stay. The angel tells him that he has more work on earth to do, and that the glory of the sixth heaven is no comparison to the glory of the seventh...
THE SEVENTH HEAVEN (4:1-6:43)
This is the bulk of the vision of Isaiah, for he is shown much of future events in this section. He is transported in time:
to the events of the rapture day,
to the events preceding the incarnation trip of the Lord to the earth, and to the events of the return of the risen Lord Jesus from earth to heaven...
This seventh heaven is the actual throne room of heaven. Just as the earth has a hollow place known as sheol, wherein there is the original abode of mankind in a perfect garden, and therein is the White Throne of the Almighty Trinity, so in heaven there is a separate area, with its own "atmosphere" (4:1), and is "in" the sixth heaven... Therefore, earth was likely designed after the planet heaven, and within it is a hollow place where, and only where, there would be enough room to adequately make a Throne room for the Almighty Trinity...
In that place, the seventh heaven, someday all the saints, and all the holy angels, will gather to worship the Lord for His blessed resurrection and rapture of His saints. Where else could we find such a room able to hold such a crowd???
Isaiah sees the Lord Jesus there, and he is concerned about Who is this one... He is told that this One has a name which no one can yet know. John re-iterates this truth in Revelation.
"His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a
name written, that no man knew, but He Himself..."
This is a seldom taught fact, but it is true. We know Him as Jesus, Immanuel, etc. but He has a name yet to be revealed, and even in the vision of John of the last days, it is still not told to us...
In vision form, Isaiah sees this seventh heaven as did John and Enoch of their similar visions, for he sees this place as it will appear on rapture day. The saints are all about... Adam, Abel, Enoch, etc. are all there... The saints are wearing special garments, that replace the "filthy rags" of our own righteousness, for we are clothed in the righteousness of Christ, or we would not live standing face to face with God Almighty...
Isaiah questions why we must for so long await our crowns. And so have many saints wondered that... Remember that Paul said that he would not receive his crown until the day wherein all the saints also receive theirs... We have been like little kids awaiting our Christmas presents, and beg to see at least one early.
II Timothy 4:7-8
"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth, there is laid up for me a
crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing."
Therefore, the day on which the Lord appears, and raptures us to heaven, is the day on which we will all be given our crowns!
"...be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life..."
"...I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."
"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him."
"Wherefore He saith, When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. Now that He ascended, what is it, but that He also descended first, into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far
above all heavens, that He might fill all things."
Jesus released those in paradise, who were awaiting His victory over sin and death so they could go to heaven. Now, when we die, we immediately can go to heaven. From Adam to Christ, the righteous dead were in the lower parts of the earth.
(II Cor. 5:8, Phil. 1:21-24, Heb. 12:22-23)
To summarize then, the seven heavens are:
1. First heaven - that air about us here on earth, wherein we dwell...
2. Second heaven - The atmosphere, clouds and above of this earth. Demons abound here, and do battle against God's angelic forces. As they battle, they also observe, the manifold wisdom of God be unfolded.
"To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church, the manifold wisdom of God."
3. Third heaven - This is the "lower parts of the earth" that is known in the Bible as Sheol. Within this place is paradise, the abyss, and hell.
4. Fourth heaven - This is our solar system.
5. Fifth heaven - This is outer space, outside our solar system.
6. Sixth heaven - This is the planet we know as heaven.
7. Seventh heaven - This is within the sixth heaven, as sheol is within the earth. It is the Throne room of God.
The Greek word for heavens is the word "oo-ranos", and literally means "places above the ground..." It comes from two words, "oros" meaning "a rising", and "epouranois" meaning "that above the ground..."
Now if you re-read many of the verses in the Bible, it can be seen the fresh and clearer understanding of what they are saying to us...
"The Lord is in His holy temple (the seventh heaven) which is
in heaven (the sixth heaven)..."
"The Lord hath prepared His throne (the seventh heaven) in the heavens, and His kingdom ruleth over all... Bless the Lord, all His works,
in all places of His dominion."
"Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool..."
"...a throne was set in heaven..."
The first three ‘heavens’ are parts of this habitable planet, we call earth. The earth, under this understanding must therefore have a large hollow area within. The earth has been shown to have a hollow interior. It is not a solid sphere with a molten fiery center, but it is a hollow sphere with polar entrances into the area the Bible calls ‘Sheol’.
The total surface area of the earth is 197 million square miles. The earth has a weight of six sex-trillion tons, but if it were solid, it would weigh much more. Scientific measurements, have proven the earth is much lighter than it should be, if it truly had a solid interior. This has puzzled scientists for years, and many are just recently beginning to look into alternative explanations for such. The hollow earth theory has gained much acceptance in recent years, and has been shown to be the understanding of many down through the ages also.
When in a molten state, at the time of formation, the centrifugal force causes the heavier substances to be thrown outward to form an outer crust, leaving a hollow interior with openings at the poles. Some of the original fire and incandescent material remain in the center of the sphere, to form a central ‘sun-like’ mass. The aurora borealis that illuminates the northern sky came from that central sun of the earth. The auroral borealis is the reflection of fire from within the interior earth. Scientists have argued over the source of the light for many decades, and the lights reflection off the electrified particles at the polar region, has confused many, but left them in awe of the spectacle.
We call that central sun like mass in the center, to be ‘hell-fire’. The Bible indicates that souls of unsaved, sinful mankind, go to the ‘lowest’ part of sheol, to be punished until judgment day, and then resurrected back into an immortal body, and to be thrown somewhere called the ‘lake of fire’, wherein the soul and body will burn eternally.
Clouds, produced by the warmed inner air, (warmed by the central mass of fire) pushing out of the northern chasm opening, creates massive clouds at the polar area. Just as when one exhales warm air from the lungs, into the cold winter air, and a small fog of breath is created, so the earth has warm air rising from this inner core, and clouds dominate the polar region from the warm air coming into the cold polar atmosphere. This cloudy exhaust has hindered photographic evidence of such opening, but several good pictures have been obtained over the years, that do show a massive opening into the earth in the northern, polar region.
The shell of the earth, the crust-like covering for sheol must average about 800 miles, some think it is much thicker. One theory says that the hard structure of that outer shell, is about 62 miles thick, and inside that is an inner core, where the density is decreased, a molten rock like mass of about 1740 miles, making a total thickness of such outer crust to be 1802 miles. (Theory by Jan Lanpract in his book, Hollow Planets, 600 pgs.) This same author goes on to state that Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars all show evidences of having hollow interiors.
The north pole is not just one point, but a circular line around the rim of the polar opening. The compass points straight down when on the rim, and further inside the rim points, it points upward, due to being in the downward sloping entrance. The circular rim, magnetic region, is a circle around the polar area with a radius of 1059 miles, a diameter of 2118 miles.
This hollow area has been called different names down through the ages, and in different cultures.
In the middle ages it was called the ‘isle of Avalon’.
In Asia minor, it was called ‘Shamballah’ (temple of the gods).
In Tibet, it is called ‘Shangri-la’, and among the Mongols it is called ‘Erdami’. The Persians call it ‘Alberdi’ or ‘Aryana’.
The Mexicans call it ‘Tula’ or ‘Tolan’.
The Spanish conquerors heard such tales, and searched for ‘El Dorado’, the ‘city of gold’, which they had heard was within such place.
The ‘aborigines’ of Australia call it ‘Manoa’ (or ‘city whose king wears clothing of gold’.)
The Celts called it the ‘land of mysteries’, or ‘Duat’, or ‘Dananda’.
The Chinese call it the ‘land of Chivin’ or ‘the city of a dozen serpents’.
The Germans called it ‘Walhalla’. The Buddhists call it ‘Agharta.’
Modern belief is much due to William Reed, who in 1906 wrote much concerning evidence and historical understanding of such an inner place. Marshall B. Gardner in 1920 added more to this study. It was then further validated by Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s arctic (1947) and antarctic (1956) expeditions, These expeditions penetrated the north pole entrance by 1700 miles, and the south pole by 2300 miles. These reports have been hushed and often now totally denied, but evidence still exists of such for those who would search.
Admiral Byrd, of the U.S. navy, left the icebound land of the arctic, and entered a land of warmth, free of ice and snow. He saw mountains, forests, plants, and animal life within the area we call ‘sheol’. One animal that was reported by him, and some companions with him on the expedition, was a monstrous animal resembling a mammoth. Some years later (1956), Admiral Byrd entered a South Pole entrance, and made similar discoveries.
The mammoth seen by Byrd, and others, has had historical evidence of such existence. In 1799, Schumachoff, a fisherman in Tongoose, Siberia, found a complete mammoth in frozen ice. He removed the large tusks, left the carcass, which was soon devoured by wolves.. Scientists who converged on the scene, came to find the complete skeleton, now in the Museum of Natural History in Leningrad. Eskimoes often find mammoths, in frozen ice, and actually eat the meat of such, for it is still fresh, and edible.
Scandanavians speak of the land that they call ‘Ultima Thule’. To them it is a wonderful land in the far north. Some of their people have over the ages, gone into such a land, and returned with reports of such.
In the arctic area, there is often found ‘colored snow’, where for 1000's of square miles, there is red, yellow, pink, blue colored snow. Investigation of such snow, has shown that the color of such is produced by pollen from plants. Where did such pollen come from??? It would take massive fields of flowers to produce that much pollen. In fact, it would take millions of acres of flowers to produce pollen to color snow, as it does there. Such pollen, in an arctic region is impossible, were it not of the near by polar entrance chasm, out of which warm air carries such pollen, to deposit it on the polar regions.
The weather inside the earth, is more uniform that it is on the outside. It is warmer in winter, and cooler in summer than on the outer earth. There is adequate rainfall, for there is much water within, and the heat of the ‘hell-fire’ sun-like mass, makes the water to evaporate, cool and fall as rain. Much of the area has its rain fall come mostly as a mist that covers the land area in the cool of the day. There is never enough cold for it to snow.
The inner-sun has about it, in the abyss area between the inner core and the sun-like mass, dark areas of clouds. The Bible speaks of these ‘cloudy dark areas’, as part of a ‘bottomless pit,’ wherein evil spirits are bound till judgment day. See Jude verse 6, and II Peter 2:4.
In Luke 16, Jesus tells of a rich man, who died and whose soul was then taken to the ‘hell-fire’ of the inner earth. A poor, but Godly man, named Lazarus, died about the same time. The rich man could look over a great abyss, and see Lazarus in paradise. This shows Jesus’ understanding of such a ‘paradise land,’ within the earth. Jesus also told the thief on the cross, ‘today thou shalt be with Me in paradise’, and Jesus told the disciples that He would be in the ‘heart of the earth’ for three days and three nights, just as Jonah had been, when his body was in the fish’s belly.
"For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."
Paradise is inside the earth, still protected by a guardian angel named ‘Zotiel’, who keeps mankind from eating the tree of life, located in that area. Paradise is on the other side of the Mammoth Ice barrier of the outer earth.
Butterflies, bees, mosquitoes... are found in the far north. They cannot be found for hundreds of miles going south into Canada, Alaska, or Russia, but in the very furthest reaches of the north, there they are.
The musk ox migrate north in the winter. Foxes are seen in the furthest reaches of the north of the outer earth. Birds come out of the northern chasm opening, and return there in spring.
Buddhists believe in ‘Agharta’, a subterranean world. The capital of such is called ‘Shamballah,’ with a ruler they call the ‘king of the world’. They believe that he gave orders to the Dalai Lama of Tibet (his terrestrial representative). Tunnels in Tibet are said to connect to this inner earth. There are reportedly tunnels in Brazil, that also connect to such land within the earth.
The Buddhist traditions say it was colonized when a holy man led a trip underground. The Bible tells of such a thing too, in Numbers 16 and giants of the post flood era, also are reported in different cultures to have gone into the earth and colonized a land within the earth. More on this in later lessons. There are myths, tales, traditions, and religions built around the stories of part angelic, part human inhabitants of an inner region of the earth.
Quetzalcoatl, whose name means ‘feathered serpent’, meaning a ‘teacher of wisdom (serpent) who flies,’ was a prophet of the Maya and Aztecs, was of a different race, with fair skin, tall, bearded. He reportedly came on an aerial vehicle, and is believed to have returned to a subterranean world. The natives of Mexico, thought Cortez was a returning Quetzalcoatl.
In the valley of Hinnom, outside the walls of old Jerusalem, according to legends, there was an entrance to sheol, marked by a column of smoke between two palm trees.
Huguerrin, in a book on flying saucers, believes that there exists many subterranean cities, cities at various depths within the earth. He has made a diagram of the earth, with various cities mapped out, and connected on such map with tunnels. There are immense cavities within even the crust-like shell of the earth.
Bulwer Lytton in the book called ‘The Coming Race’ describes a subterranean civilization in a large cavity of the earth, connected to the surface with tunnels. It is illuminated by a strange light, produced by electrification of the atmosphere. They grow therein, their own food, (vegetables), and have an apparatus with which they ‘fly’ not walk. They are reportedly free from disease.
Massive tunnel systems exist on the earth, that lead to the center ‘sheol’ of the earth. The most famous is called the ‘roadway of Incas’. The mysterious disappearances of Incas, is complicated by the widespread claim that they entered tunnels, and went down into the earth.
In Brazil, in the Roncador Mts. of northeast Matto Grosso, Colonel Fawcett, and his son, Jack, are said to have disappeared there. The tunnel entrance is guarded by fierce Chavantes Indians, who kill uninvited persons. Some tunnels are guarded by Murcego Indians, who are dark skinned, undersized people of great strength, and having a great sense of smell.
In the Liyobaa (meaning ‘cavern of death’) caves, of South America, near a village called Mictlan, there is a ‘cavern of death’ located in the last chamber of an eight chamber building. This building has four chambers above ground, and four chambers below ground. Of the four underground chambers, the first is where once human sacrifices were done on its stone altar. The second chamber was used as a crypt for perserved bodies of the priests. The third was only an entrance for the fourth chamber. The last chamber is where the dead bodies of the sacrifice victims were put. Beyond that last room, there is a supposed cave leading down into the inner ‘sheol’ of the earth.
The Aztecs of Mexico believed in a land called Tlalxico that is ruled by "Mictlan (god of death).
The Mayans of the Yucatan peninsula, also believed in an underworld that was ruled by Ah Puch, the lord of death.
The Incas of Peru and Chile, believed in a person named, Supal (god of death). The legend is that the first Inca, Manco Capac, and his followers came from underground caves, and revered snakes.
The Bible teaches that there is something under the earth...
"No man, in heaven, in earth, neither
under the earth was able to open the book, neither to look thereon."
"Every creature, in heaven, on earth, and
under the earth saying... Glory, and power unto the Lamb..."
‘At Jesus’ name, every knee bow, of heaven, on earth, and
under the earth."
Of late, the U.S. has been secretly entering into sheol from an antarctic region. They have discovered ‘Lake Vostok’, a massive lake, two miles under the ice cover. The lake is the size of Lake Ontario, but twice as deep. From that lake, going towards its source, they have entered one of the southern chasms, to find sheol. Up a great waterfall, they have come to an inner river, and across such river they have found a ‘Korah-ite’ town called ‘Kophi’ (pronounced ‘coffee’). The U.S. has mistakenly thought the city to be ‘Atlantis’, and has made some major errors in trying to contact such people... More will be shown on this in later lessons.
The Russians have with agreement with the U.S. taken the northern entrance, and have come into Sheol. They met with disaster from their attempts to cross a ‘red’ river, into a land of plush growth, but protected by angels (including Zotiel).... At one time, the whole invading army, trying to cross the river which they were forbidden to cross, were struck blind for 30 days. Attempt after attempt had been thwarted, and their attempts are currently at a standstill.
Originally, in later fall of 1999, when first in the Lake Vostok area, the U.S. explorers were shocked to find a female come over the falls which they found coming out of the cave up into an unexplored area. The woman was rescued, but found to have cancer, and had to be secreted out of the Antarctic region, with many excuses being given for needing a plane to fly out some from that area.
The finding of that person, made the U.S. push forward to find what lay above the falls that flowed into Lake Vostok. Using cables and a mini-helicopter, they entered into the ‘sheol’ area of the earth. Many events have transpired since, and continue to occur.
Current reports of such excursions are filling the internet, and the reports of finding a small baby mammoth, inside the southern entrance will soon be announced. More on these stories as our study continues.
There are two habitable worlds, one of which is this earth, and many of the strange occurrences of the earth, including ‘ufo’s’ and mysterious beings, are not from outer space, but are locate-able within the earth. The original, and only, ‘alien’ beings are called angels, and are from the other planet which God has inhabited. These angels, and some offspring of them, now are frequently seen in or as ufo’s. The tampering of these fallen, evil angels with beings on this earth, have made some unique, sometimes bizarre, beings...
We shall study this phenomenon, as caused by disobedient creatures who invaded this planet long ago, and still remain, altering more life forms of this planet.

EVIL ALIENS, AND GOOD ALIENS
Angels are beings, created of God. They are the ‘aliens’ of the universe, and active in this universe. While many try to understand about flying saucers, cigar mother ships, etc., they ignore part of the answer the Bible gives us. We should not ignore the subject of angels, the aliens which the Bible tells us. The Lord does not ignore the subject, and the Bible does not either, and the facts will help us understand many of the mysteries of the day.
The Christian world knows very little about angels, on the whole. The world, and even some Christians, think they're "female" and picture them so. Yet every angel mentioned in Scripture is male. Some think of angels as a tiny cherub shooting arrows at hearts or lovers. Most think of angels as winged creatures, yet only cherubim and seraphim are mentioned as having wings in the Bible.
There is much for man to learn from the Bible about angels. Enoch and the Bible will tell us much about angels. If we look in both, we can greatly enrich our meager knowledge on the angelic world.
The Bible indicates three basic types of angels: Seraphim - Isa. 6:1-7 Cherubim - Gen. 3:24, Ezek. 1:5-28, Ezek. 8:1-4, 10:1-22, Rev. 4:6, 5:14, 6:1-8, 7:11, 14:3,9-11, 15:7, 19:4 Common Angels - mentioned almost 300 times in Scripture.
These are all spirit beings.... yet they have bodies.... these bodies have hands, feet, eyes, heads, voices, hair, and other parts as men have. (Gen. 8:2-8, 19:1-22, Judg. 13:6) We are even advised in Hebrews 13:2 to:
"Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." So angels can appear so human-like, that we could be easily fooled.
Jacob wrestled with an angel all night. The perverted sinners of Sodom and Gomorrah were anxious to get to the angels that came to rescue Lot and his family. These angels appeared very human-like.
Yet the cherubim and seraphim are not very human-like.
above the throne in Isaiah's vision. Each had 6 wings (two to cover his face, two to cover his feet, and two with which to fly). They shouted "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts, the whole earth is full of His glory". One of these seraphim took a coal from the altar and put it on the lips of Isaiah to cleanse his sin. They handled the coals of fire, like unto their name...."The ones that burn".
Cherubim.... are sometimes shown with four faces and four wings. (face of a man, lion, ox, and eagle). They appeared
beneath the throne of God in Ezekiel. In Revelation we see 4. Each had a different head (one a man, another was a lion, a third like a calf, and the fourth as an eagle). These each had six wings and were full of eyes... they rested not day and night, but continuously cried, "Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is and is to come." By this they lived up to their name, for they defended God's holiness by this proclamation.
Common Angels, in the book of Revelation
surround the throne. (Rev. 5:11) In Enoch71;7, the Seraphim, Cherubim and other angels simply stay "near the throne of glory."
We know that the angels of God are organized, having archangels that direct others. Likewise the fallen angels of Satan are also shown to consist of "principalities, powers, rulers of darkness of this world, spirit wicked ones in the heavenlies." (Eph. 6:12)
The Bible tells us of the
Many of the good angels are guardian angels for the righteous. They are not only to protect and to guard God's children....but also to record every good deed done by the ones they watch. They also list God's reward for that good work. When a man goes into sin, that guardian angel becomes an "angel of punishment" Instead of recording the good deeds, that angel now records every sin of that one they watch. (Rev. 20:12) So the same angel lists either one's good deeds or one's sins. When one repents, the sins are blotted out.
Angels are able to appear as a burning fire, or as a man.
In 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8 we read:
"...when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God."
In Hebrews 1:7 we also see:
"And of the angels He saith; Who maketh His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire."
So there seems to exist a harmony of the idea that angels can change appearance.
In the Bible we are told a little about the
fall of many angels that started some years before the flood. The "sons of God" of Genesis 6:1-4, were angels. They were tempted by the fair women of the earth, and sinned though fornication. Some proceeded to try to corrupt the lineage of Adam and Eve, thereby to stop the coming of the "seed of woman" who would "bruise the head of the serpent" (Genesis 3:15).
Josephus says "many angels of God accompanied with women, and begat sons that proved unjust, despisers of all that was good. These men did what resembled the acts of those the Grecians called giants." [Ant. Bk. 1 ch.3] The Ante-Nicene fathers also refer to angels as "falling into impure love of virgins, and were begotten of them those who are called giants." [vol 2, page 142, and vol 8 pages 85, 273]. The Old Testament, and the New Testament teach that angels committed sex sins, and lived contrary to their nature.
"...the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and they took them wives... there were giants (nephilim) in the earth in those days and also after that when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children unto them."
II Peter 2:4-5
"For if God spared not the angels that sinned but cast them down to hell (tartarus) and delivered them into chains of darkness to be reserved unto judgment."
"And the angels who kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah... going after strange flesh... giving themselves over to fornication."
And we also are told in 1 Peter 3:19-20:
"By which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison: which sometime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water."
The angels in Scripture are all male....God did not create them to reproduce.... yet they did possess the power to do so.
"For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven."
The purpose of marriage and the begetting of children is to replenish the earth. Since man is mortal, he needs to bear seed to carry on life. Jesus did not say that angels were sexless - only that they did not need to reproduce to carry on their existence.
Adam was created male before Eve was created. God gave Eve to Adam, so that he would not be alone on this earth. Together they beget the first of the ones that now have replenished this earth. The angels have no need to reproduce, since they are eternal. Yet, since they are all male, the possibility to reproduce is there.
"No man lives to himself, and no man dies to himself."
Many people paid dearly due to the sin of these fallen angels. The daughters of men they married, the children born to them, the innocents that the giants killed, all who died in the flood that God sent to wipe out this corrupted seed. Our sins have far reaching effects. The giants that were produced through this union of angels and women of the earth were extremely evil. Their end came at the time of the flood. Just before the flood, God allowed a war between the giants to occur....they began to kill each other. The flood killed all the remaining giants and their descendants. God didn't want this corrupted seed of mankind to prevent Jesus from being able to come and die for all of mankind.... by being a direct descendant of Adam. The seed had to remain pure. God found Noah "perfect." The word "perfect" is "tamiym"....meaning "bodily perfection", not "moral perfection". That means Noah was directly descended from Adam....without angelic corruption of his seed. So God saved Noah and his family....and wiped out the results of the sins of the fallen angels.
The giants that were half human, half angelic became some of the evil spirits upon the earth, and some giant spirits were bound because they were born from the fallen angels, they are spirits of the evil ones. The dwelling place of the spirits of heaven is in heaven, so likewise the dwelling of spirits born on earth - is earth. These spirits of the giants attack, fight, and cause sorrow. They are against the men and women of the earth, because they came from them. When the giants died, their spirits left their bodies. Their spirits shall be destroyed on the great judgment day, when their final end and judgment will come.
The source of demonic spirits has always intrigued mankind. Why do they hate men so? Why do they so desperately want to inhabit the body of a person? From where did they come? Why would God create them? The angels gave birth to these evil spirits. They had been wicked giant beings who hated mankind, and even each other when they lived. Now their spirits roam the earth. They miss having their own body, so they seek to possess a body. Demonic possession has been a problem of this world for many centuries.
Some evil spirits that we battle are spirits of these giant beings, half human, half angelic. Some other demons are the spirits of the pre-adamite spirits that fell in the original creation before Adam.
The flood destroyed all with those teachings of the fallen angels. Noah and his sons followed God's direction, and God had cleansed the earth of these sinful results of the angelic corruption.
devil was not done with that scheme, for he tried again after the flood. God had promised not to destroy the world again by flood, so he felt, one more try and he could corrupt the seed of Adam and Eve, and keep the Messiah-seed from coming. Giants, were produced, and later, other forms of beings came, including ‘big foot type creatures, grays, etc.... all being part human, and part angelic. Goliath was one of the giant beings, and when the children of Israel came back to the promised land, following the Egyptian slavery, they found the land wherein the Messiah was to be born, to be filled with giants... That is why the instructions of God to Moses, Joshua, and the Israelites... was to kill every ‘man, woman, and child’ of these partial alien beings, for intermarrying with them, would have corrupted the lineage of the Messiah.
The devil has always been actively evil, and we are instructed to ‘Neither give place to the devil’ (Ephesians 4:27), for his ways and plans are evil toward God and man. He still has an agenda, and is still working on it. The giants (their descendants), the greys, the ‘big foot’ type creatures do still exist, and are still part of the devil’s plan.
"Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.’
So, there are
fallen arch angels, fallen angels, beings created by union of angels and mankind, and evil spirits from a previous creation... that seek to defeat and corrupt mankind. They are still struggling, and are working yet to someday even battle openly against the saints, and Jesus Himself.. They still exist in the ‘heavens’... and in some of the seven heavens, there are evil beings working for the devil.
"Satan" means ‘adversary’, and he yet is an adversary.. Many saints think the battle is over... but we are told to resist him, we are told that he will seek to ‘snatch’ away the truth from us before it takes root and yields fruit... And the truth about how these evil beings are working against God and the saints has been snatched away, and is unknown to many who call themselves ‘Christians’.
The devil knows the ‘signs’ of the times, and knows that the dime is near, When great signs were fulfilled upon the earth (as Israel becoming a nation, Jerusalem being taken from Gentile control, etc.) the reports of flying saucers reached peak levels. For these beings are watching and observing... waiting for the coming of Jesus, and planning a last day invasion, attack, and war.
Jesus told us in Matthew 24:32-33, that when Israel became a nation..... we are to know that ‘it is near, even at the doors’. And the devil also knows Scripture, and knows that the coming of the Lord is very near.
I Timothy 4:1
"The Spirit clearly says that in the later times, some will abandon the faith, and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons."
Many of the things taught about UFO’s and aliens, are lies and deceptions taught by the devil’s side. We need to verify everything by the Word of God, and search that book given us by God for truth about what the devil is up to in these last days. The word ‘devil’ means ‘accuser’, ‘slanderer’, and he has had many lies and deceptions out there, to confuse mankind about the source and agenda of these ‘aliens’... The devil is called the ‘father of lies’, and a ‘liar’ and ‘murderer from the beginning.’ To believe many of the heresies started by him, and his ‘deceiving spirits’ is foolish.
II Timothy 3:1
"This know also, that in the last days, perilous times shall come."
The ‘perilous times’ have arrived, the danger is imminent, and the many sightings of aliens, alien crafts, the abductions, and mutilations, are part of the scheme, and warning signs that the devil’s scheme is still at work... and nearing the time of exposure.
Paul told those at Corinth, that they were ‘not unaware of his (the devil’s) schemes." (II Corinthians 2:11). Yet, many today are totally unaware of what is happening now, and what is about to happen, in the devil fulfilling a scheme began long ago, before even the flood. The battle against his scheme is still to be continuing, we should be alerting others, battling the devil, and being the ‘hinderer’ that we are to be, until we be taken out of the way. The devil cannot bring fruition to his scheme, until we are raptured, for it is then that the ‘antichrist’ who is possessed by one of the progenitors of this scheme of the devil (Belial) can come and bring the scheme to the forefront of world events.
The devil uses a combination of methods to spread his deceptive lies. He uses fortune telling, psychics, occult magick, spiritism, new age religion, satanism, enchantments, and superstitions, witchcraft, divination, necromancy, charms, spells, and astrology to bring in parts of the heresy that will deceive many in these last days. We, as saints of God, should be alert to such work of the devil... and yet, many do not even realize what is happening.
Beware this devil, and keep studying, for the devil is still ‘looking for someone to devour." (I Peter 5:8) We must ‘resist the devil and he will flee..." (James 4:7) The devil is called by Jesus to be a ‘thief’, and Jesus tells us that he comes ‘only to steal and to kill and destroy." (John 10:10).

Part 5 CLONING, DNA EXPERIMENTS OF THE AGES AND THE STRANGE OFFSPRING OF THESE FORBIDDEN MIXTURES
The Babylonian tradition was recorded by Berosus in 300 BC, basing his story on the archives of the temple of Marduk in Babylon. The story says Xisuthrus was warned by the gods to build a ship. He took with him friends, relatives and different animals. After the flood waters began to subside, his ship was stranded in Armenia. Birds were sent out. After leaving the ship he offered a sacrifice.
The "sons of God" in the Genesis account is a phrase that occurs five times in the Old Testament. Each time it refers to angels. (Gen. 6:1-4, Job 1:6, Job 2:1, Job 38:7, Daniel 3:28) The Septuagint translates it as "angels of God."
Josephus says "many angels of God accompanied with women and begot sons that proved unjust and despisers of all that was good... these men resembled the acts of those the Grecians called giants." (Ant. Book 1 ch. 3) "...the bones of these men are still shown to this very day." (Ant. Book 5 ch. 2)
Both the Old Testament and the New Testament teach us that angels committed sex sins, and lived contrary to nature. (Gen. 6:1-4, 2 Peter 2:4-5, Jude 6-7)
This flood wiped out the conspiracy of the devil to corrupt the seed of woman, with the seed of fallen angels. The flood stopped that plot, but the devil then tried again with the conspiracy of Belial.
Belial is the one called "the ruler of this world". The Bible refers to him as "the prince of this world" (John 12:31, 16:11), and as "the god of this world" (II Cor. 4:4). He is the head of the "rulers of the darkness of this world" (Eph. 6:12).
"Belial" (which means "being of no ascent") is actually his title. His name is "Metanbuchus" which is from the two Hebrew words "mattan bukah" meaning "the gift of the abyss". This one is half human and half angelic spirit (from the angels that co-habited with women in Genesis creating a race of giants). "He dwelt in the heart of Manasseh" (9:11), he also inhabited Alexander the Great, and later Jesus bound him to the abyss. Someday, he will be released to inhabit the Antichrist. He is the "gift" of the abyss. A dreadful and horrible gift to return to this earth, but like his name - Metanbuchus - he has a destiny for these last days. His title, Belial, is from the Hebrew - Bal-ya-al - meaning "a being of no ascent or resurrection" There is no resurrection for these half-angelic, half human spirits.
"An evil disease (literally =Belial) say they cleaveth fast unto him, and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more."
"O Lord our God, other lords beside Thee have had dominion over us, but by Thee only will make mention of Thy name. They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased (Rephaim, a name of the giants created by the fornication of angels with women), they shall not rise! Therefore, hast Thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish."
The term "sons of Belial" is used often in the Old Testament (Deut. 13:13, Judg, 19:22, 20:13, I Sam. 1:16, 2:12, 10:27, 25:17, 25, 30:22, II Sam. 16:17, 20:1, 23:6, I Ki. 21:10, 13, II Chron. 13:7).
Ephesians 6:12 shows different levels of evil spirits.
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against: principalities (fallen arch angels) powers (fallen angels) rulers of the darkness of this world (half-angelic, half human spirits) wicked spirits in the heavenlies (pre- adamite human spirits of a creation before Adam)."
Belial is the leader of the "rulers" category. Sammael is also of the same kind and he rules the ones in the area known as Sheol... Belial is the "beast out of the abyss" referred to by John in Revelation. He is an evil spirit, who will use the Antichrist to restore the old Grecian empire as the eighth kingdom. Belial is the one who inhabited and empowered Alexander the Great, and built the old Grecian empire.
When Jesus came, His death and resurrection meant a binding of this Belial to the abyss until the last days. He is confined now, until this release to restore first the Grecian empire, then the old Roman empire...
"The beast that thou sawest
was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition (the man of sin, i.e. the Antichrist)..."
Jesus came to cast out this Belial.
now shall the prince of this world be cast out..."
When the Spirit came at Pentecost, Belial had already been judged and imprisoned into the abyss.
"of judgment, because the
prince of this world is judged..."
II Thessalonians 2:3 speaks of the "man of lawlessness" and "he that opposes and exalteth himself against all that is called God... Many believe that "man of sin (or lawlessness) is a reference to Belial, and the other a reference to the Antichrist. That makes this a reference to the Antichrist as one possessed by Belial.
"...there shall rise unto you from the tribe of Judah and of Levi, the salvation (Yeshua) of the Lord, and He shall make war against Belial..."
This Belial was an opponent of Christ. Belial has shown great antagonism against God and Jesus throughout history.
II Cor. 6:15
"What concord hath Christ with Belial?"
Revelation 13:1 speaks of a "beast" that will "rise out of the sea (speaking of the mass of humanity) representing the evil spirit (Belial) that inhabits the Antichrist.
Revelation 13:11 speaks of "another beast coming up out of the earth", and this is reference to Sammael, the evil demonic ruler in Sheol who will inhabit the false prophet.
Apoc. of Isa. 10:2
"Belial, the evil demon who rules this age since its inception as the king of demons, will come from his place (the abyss) and inhabit the likeness of man, and dwell in a lawless king..."
"The beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them (the two witnesses) and shall overcome them and kill them..."
Sammael, is the angel in Sheol, the angel of death or of the underworld. He inspired Manasseh to saw Isaiah in half (6:41). He is a subordinate to Belial (7:8). Sammael means "venom of God". He is spoken of much in Jewish literature, both Talmudic and post-Talmudic. He is called the "prince of devils" (Deut. rabb. 11:9). Sammael is his name, and his title is "Malchira" meaning "evil king" (7:8). In the time of Isaiah, Belial inhabited mainly Manasseh, while Sammael concentrated on Belchira, the false prophet.
Belial is the demon power who has inhabited Alexander the Great, Manasseh, and soon will inhabit the Antichrist. The Antichrist is spoken here as "one who has slain his mother." This may be a literal truth, or a figure of speech indicating the depth of degradation and sinfulness of this man. It would take the most horrible sinfulness for one to kill the one who gave him birth.
This Belial will be utterly defeated during Armageddon, and the Millennial rule of Jesus will be void of this Belial.
"...The Lord hath broken the staff of the 'wicked one' (Belial), ...he (Belial) that ruled the nations in anger is persecuted, and none hindereth."
II Thessalonians 2:7-8
"...he who now letteth (hinders) will let (hinder) until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked One be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming."
The demons are fighting as never before, and we must also fight as never before. It is time to put demons into the abyss, lest they hinder the revival of the last days. Many have ignored the demonic powers, but they have not gone away, and we either battle them or be hurt by them. It is time to battle and bind and cast them into the abyss!
Evil demons, and evil powers are battling the saints and prophets of today. They are very angry knowing that their time is short, but we have the power of the Lord, and the authority of Jesus to defeat every evil power out there.
"And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils."
"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you."
The conspiracy involving Belial involved mixing of human and angelic dna again, and then trying and trying through cloning and dna mixtures to make beings that were evil and powerful. In the Book of Baruch, a prophet at the same time as Jeremiah we read:
Baruch ch. :
8. I will call the Sirens from the sea, and the Lilin from the deserts, and the Shedim and dragons from the forests saying to them: 'Awake and bind your loins unto mourning, and take up with me lamentation, and mourn with me.
Here, we find mentioned several groups -- "
sirens... lilin... shedim... and dragons." What or who are these? According to Berossus, the "deity", Belus (we know him as Belial, Marduk, Nimrod, etc.) brought forth "hideous beings". As angels had co-habited with women of earth to create giants, and eventually hideous creatures, the fallen angels also mixed their DNA with animals of earth, developing creatures often seen carved on walls of ancient structures, referred to in myths, and ancient tales from that area. Different animals were used to concoct some strange beings, that were half angelic, and half animal.
Berossus tells us that Belus generated
"men... with two wings", some with "four and others with two faces", some with "one body, two heads, one a man, the other of a woman...", human figures with legs and horns of goats", " human figures with horses' feet", "bulls with heads of men."
Likely, this experimentation was not successful, at least not fully. The beings were noted for their evil nature, their doleful howling, and misery.
Those generated were mostly, if not totally, female, and perhaps that accounts for their absence, extinction, at least in bodily form. As the half angelic, half human beings became the ruling "powers" after their death, so these beings, after their demise, became demonic powers that persisted to taunt, seek to harm, and work against mankind. Their spirits led mankind astray, in fact, these spirit beings are the forerunners of sorcery, magic, and witchcraft. They still persist in trying to get other human females into witchcraft, etc.
These are sea-nymphs, (known today as the fabled "mermaids"... They were female bodies with tails of a fish, and are referred to in Isaiah 34:14 as "wild beasts of the island". The words "wild beast" is a poor translation of the heb. "iy" (ee)  meaning "woeful howler". The spirits of these pathetic beings haunted sailors by howling, singing, etc. to encourage sailors to steer closer to the rocks, thereby causing many shipwrecks.
This word comes from "lilu" meaning "to howl". A "lil" came to refer to a spirit who was attended by a serving maid, i.e. a "lili" a maid of the night. They were depicted in history as a naked winged goddess with bird-like feet. They are the "wild beasts of the desert" (from 6728, tsee-ee) "howlers" of Isaiah 34:14, and the "screech owl" ( a lousy translation of two Heb. words, "bath"  meaning "daughter" and "yacanah"  meaning "the alert one" [translated "owl" here because owls are alert in the night seeking prey.)
This word, shedim" (7704, 7708) is plural, and refers to "demons of the plain". These generated beings were the "satyrs" of Isaiah 34:13, 13:21-22, Lev. 17:7, II Chron. 11:15. The word "satyr" comes from Heb. "sa-ir" meaning "shaggy as a he-goat". They are depicted in carvings and paintings of ancient times as half goat, half human-like. They are descendants of genetic-engineering of angelic DNA with a goat.
This is from the word "tanniym" referring to a marine or land monster. This genetically engineered creature was part angelic, and part sea monster, perhaps having more than one head. This is referred to often in the Bible, esp. note Isaiah 34:13, 43:20, and Micah 1:8.
All of these beings were
known for "howling", and being miserable in their state. They continue to be miserable, bodiless, as spirit beings. They are referred to here by Baruch, as they were by Isaiah, Moses and Micah. Baruch refers to these spirits for he feels so bad about the judgment of God, that he feels he is joining these beings in their howling misery.
Today they are
cloning and mixing DNA of humans and animals. The mixing started soon after the flood, by Nimrod (who became Belial after his bodily death. The sin of today is similar to Baruch's day. Perhaps, we should think of them as even worse sins. For now, we are in the day of grace. The whole of the Bible has been completed. Jesus has shown the love and mercy of God, by the cross and resurrection. And to add to the greatness of the sin, the fact that over half the people who have ever lived since Adam, are alive today. So multitudes more than in Baruch's day, are in rebellion, sin, shameful deeds and thoughts. The judgment of God must be announced. God is calling a fresh group of prophets to the task. Judgment must be announced, not because the prophet, or God - hates the people. Rather because God and His prophets love the people.
Through the instigation of the devil, using Belial, the mixing of dna from humans and animals, humans and angels, angels and animals was started. Some failures as the ‘sirens’, lillin, shedim, and dragons were at the beginning.
Big-foot, and other gigantic DNA mistakes
Some of the mixing brought degenerate, weird creatures. Big-foot is one such example.
"And these are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah and Anah; this was that Anah that found the mules (Hebrew = Yemin) in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father."
The word "Yemin" occurs only once in the Bible. Its meaning is very obscure. The Latin Vulgate translated it to mean "warm springs", but this is doubtful, for it does not relate to any of several Hebrew words for "springs". There are many words translated "springs": -
ashedoth = Deuteronomy 4:49, Joshua 10:40
gal = Song of Solomon 4:12
gullah = Joshua 15:19
mabbua = Isaiah 35:7
nebek = Joshua 38:16
mayan = Psalms 87:7
None of these are remotely similar to "Yemin". The closest the translators could find was the word "yacham" which means "hot, to be in heat..." Or perhaps the word "yom" which means "the warm part of the day..." So to translate "Yemin" to mean "warm springs" is far-fetched.
The King James Version translated it to mean "mules". This is likewise hard to understand. The Hebrew words for "mules" are:
pered (separate one)
pirdah (female mule)
rekesh (swift beast)
None of these are remotely similar to "Yemin". This word has puzzled translators for centuries. The Jewish writers and translators are unsure of the meaning of the word.
This verse in Genesis is in the section of Genesis known as the "generations" or "chronicles" of Esau. Thus, Esau recorded this story, and Moses related it briefly, as a story that needed clarification on who the Anah was that saw these "Yemin." It would hardly seem worthwhile - or worth the effort - for Moses, or Esau, to relate about the finding of some "mules" in the fields.
It is more likely that the word "Yemin" is related to the word "Emim" which was the plural of the word "emah", which means "frightful, horrible, terrible, fearful..." It is used in the Bible to refer to a certain group of the half angelic, and half human creatures born
before, and after the flood. This form of crossbreed was malformed, ugly, and beast-like.
The Christian world knows very little about angels, on the whole. The world, and even some Christians, think they are "female" and picture them so. Yet, every angel mentioned in Scripture is male. Some think of an angel as a tiny cherub shooting arrows at hearts or lovers. Most think of angels as winged creatures, yet only cherubim and seraphim are mentioned as having wings in the Bible. There is much for man to learn from the Bible about angels. These are all spirit beings, yet they have bodies. These bodies have hands, feet, eyes, heads, voices, hair, and other parts as men have. (Gen. 8:2-8, 19:1-22, Judg. 13:6)
We are even advised in Hebrews 13:2 to:
"Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
So angels can appear so human-like, that we could be easily fooled. The perverted sinners of Sodom and Gomorrah were anxious to get to the angels that came to rescue Lot and his family. These angels appeared very human-like.
In the Bible we are told a little about the fall of many angels that started some years before the flood.
Genesis 6:1,2,4, we are told:
"And it came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair: and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth
which were of old (meaning 'these are the ones told about even in the past'), men of in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became (subsequent births were different from the earlier ones) mighty men (very strong beings), renown (Heb. = shem = shame, conspicuous by reason of individuality)."
2 Peter 2:4-5 adds some more to this:
"For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment and spared not the old world, but saved Noah, the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly"
Jude 6-7 also tells us:
"And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities about them, in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."
And we also are told in 1 Peter 3:19-20:
"By which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison: which sometime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water."
The fact that giants have lived on the earth is clearly stated in Scripture.
The Hebrew word "Nephilim" (Genesis 6:4, Numbers 13:33) means "giants". Israel saw themselves as "grasshoppers" in the sight of these giants.
The "Anakims" were a branch of these giants, named after Anak, one of the giants. (Deut. 1:28; 2:10-11, 21; 9:2, Josh. 11:21-22; 14:12-14)
The "Rephaim" were giants (Genesis 14:5, 15:20; II Samuel 5:18, 22, 23:13; I Chron. 11:15; 14:9; Isaiah 17:5). They are mentioned often in the Bible. The Bible translators often translated the word "Rephaim" as "dead" and "deceased" (Job 26:5, Ps. 88:10, Proverbs 2:18, 9:18, 21:16, Isaiah 14:8, 26:14,19).
The land of Ammon was a land of giants, for giants dwelled there according to Deuteronomy 2:10-11. The "Emim" were a branch of the giants who were terrible, ugly, and frightening. They were as tall as the Anakims.
In Deuteronomy 2:10-11, we read:
"The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims. Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims, but the Moabites call them Emims."
Then again they are mentioned in Genesis 14:5:
"And in the fourteenth year of Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Auaims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim..."
Until the finding, translating, and study of the book of Jasher, the word "Yemin", and an understanding of the nature of the branch of giants called "Emim" was not understood. There is a story in Jasher, that fills in the missing details on the "Yemin," and proves that the word does not mean "mules" or "warm springs."
28. "And the sons of Shobal were Alvan, Manahath. Ebal, Shepho, and Onam, and the sons of Zibeon were Ajah, and Anah, this was that Anah who found the Yemin in the wilderness when he fed the asses of Zibeon, his father.
29. And whilst he was feeding his father's asses, he led them to the wilderness at different times to feed them.
30. And there was a day that they brought them to one of the deserts on the sea shore, opposite the wilderness of the people, and whilst he was feeding them,, behold a very heavy storm came from the other side of the sea, and rested upon the asses that were feeding there, and they all stood still.
31. And afterward, about one hundred and twenty great and terrible animals came out from the wilderness at the other side of the sea, and they all came to the place were the asses were, and they placed themselves there.
32. And those animals, from their middle downward, were in the shape of the children of men, and from their middle upward, some had the likeness of bears, and some the likeness of the keephas, with tails behind them from between their shoulders reaching down to the earth, like the tails of the ducheephath, and these animals came and mounted and rode upon these asses, and led them away, and they went away unto this day.
33. And one of these animals approached Anah and smote him with his tail, and then fled from that place.
34. And when he saw this work he was exceedingly afraid for his life, and he fled and escaped to the city.
35. And he related to his sons and brothers all that had happened to him, and many men went to seek the asses, but could not find them, and Anah and his brothers went no more to that place from that day following, for they were greatly afraid of their lives."
The horrible creatures mentioned were almost forgotten by the inhabitants. They were so rejected and feared by the people, that these Yemin had retired to secure, remote areas, and stayed for the most part hidden away from civilization. The sighting by Anah was so frightening, that he feared that area the rest of his life.
Do these Yemin, descendants of the giants called Emim, still exist? There have been many, many sightings over the centuries of unusual, terrible, creatures that appear somewhat human-like. The names vary with the region of the world, but the descriptions are quite similar.
These creatures have been called:
Bigfoot or Sasquatch in North America...
Yeti or the Abominable snowmen in India, China, and near-by regions...
Mapinguary in Brazil...
Maricoxis in Bolivia...
Ucumar, or Ucu in Argentina...
Mecheny, Kaptar, or Almasty in Russia...
Hiba-gon monster in Japan, Indonesia, south China, and Malaysia...
Yowie in Australia...
The list could go on and on, for the different areas of the world. What the book of Jasher and the Bible called the Yemin, and the Emims, the world has called many, many names down through the ages. The beings that scared Anah, have frightened multitudes down through the ages.
There were several types of these described by Anah. There are several types still in existence. Yet the descriptions still seem to show creatures that are more bear-like, than ape-like. They are usually 6 to 9 feet tall, mostly 7 1/2 to 8 feet tall. They weigh 300 to 400 pounds, and have a horrible smell. Often, the description includes -- canine like teeth, long arms, small forehead, small chin, flat type nose, large eyes, reddish brown hair, prominent cheek bones, hair on most of the body, except palms and the bottom of the feet. Some have been seen with bows and arrows, some have had clubs, some have had deer skin like clothing, and some have had small bags to carry honey and nettles.
These beings are the descendants of the half angelic and half humans born ages ago. They still seem to exist, though they stay away from human contact, at least as much as they can. They seem to be brutish, but not as intelligent as the Rephaim, Anakims, and Nephilim types of half angelic. The Emims were a malformed, horrible, bizarre crossbreed. While not as belligerent as the other forms of half angels, they seem to be not as intelligent either.
God discouraged the continuation of the fallen angels coming to the women of this earth to produce children. This malformed, ugly, horrible type of being was being born to the continued cohabitation of women with these fallen angels. This malformed being still exists in this world, and is a reminder to the angels of the judgment of God for continued fornication on their part, and is a reminder to mankind that God judges sin.
Perhaps they will soon be found, captured, or whatever, and undoubtedly, some will try to claim they are the "missing link," and that we are evolved from them. Do not be shaken in your faith, we did not evolve upward from these malformed creatures. Rather, they are the "de-evolution" downward from man, caused by the sinfulness of the "daughters of men" and the fallen angels of God.
Reptilians, and other mixtures that survive yet...
Somewhere along the line came the ‘Reptilians’ that are often seen today in UFO sightings. The Reptilians have wrap around yellow, slanted eyes, with snake pupils, pointed ears, a big grin, hooked nose, and grayish skin and short teeth.
In accounts of sightings in recent years, of these reptilians, they seem to be short on intelligence, but loyal servants to the greys, doing their bidding.
Greys are short, gray colored, big eyes, large cranium, creatures, that were also a result of dna mixture of angel and human beings. These ‘greys’ are fragile, but brilliant. While the giant, big-foot, or rephraim, nephillim, creatures are strong and virile, but short on intelligence, the greys are the opposite, frail and easily injured or killed, but brilliant beyond our understanding... The greys are therefore timid to be in the presence of human beings, without nephillim escort to be buffers between them and humans.

THE HOLLOW EARTH, HOME OF THESE UFO OCCUPANTS
Places unfamiliar to us, that Enoch was shown Where do we get our conceptions of heaven, hell, paradise, and other scriptural places? Sometimes we are told so little that we have added our own ideas to fill in the blanks. Ask any ten Christians and you'll receive ten different descriptions of heaven.
Enoch, after his rapture, was given a tour of many places. He gives some details that are startling, and will shake many conceptions we have developed. Yet, as I plan to show, Enoch's teaching is not unscriptural. In fact, the startling facts shown in Enoch explain and enlighten many scriptures. Be ready to have your ideas shaken. Check the scriptures and examine your ideas for scriptural support, perhaps you'll find Enoch to be more scriptural than we have been over the years.
Most of us know of Enoch's rapture to heaven, but that was only one stop on Enoch's tour, and that is where we'll start.
Heaven is a literal place. Jesus referred to it as a "place."
"In My Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also."
Heaven is not a ghostly, unreal, indefinite state. It is as real a place physically as the city where you dwell. Heaven is a desirable place, as Paul described his "having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better." Enoch, as Paul, also felt this way, after he'd seen heaven. In Enoch 39:8 we read: "My soul longed to stay there..."
It is finally realized by anyone who gets even a glimpse of heaven, that earth is no comparison to what awaits us in heaven. Earth is the testing place, the battleground. Heaven is the victory place, the homeland. Our eternal home, the New Jerusalem, has been built and awaits us. Kids in school do not resign themselves to summer vacation, but eagerly desire it. Yet, many Christians "resign themselves to go to heaven." How God must be insulted.
In heaven, we'll have real physical bodies. Jesus went there in a body that could be touched and could eat. (Compare Luke 24:39, John 20:27, 1 John 1:11, and Acts 1:11) Elijah went to heaven in a physical body, (Hebrews 11:5). Many saints were resurrected after Christ's resurrection and went to heaven in a physical body, (Matthew 27:52-53). When I walk those streets of gold, it will be in a body of flesh and bone. It will be a glorified body, incorruptible and eternal, but still real.
In a vision of heaven, Enoch was shown the post-rapture day events in heaven, (Enoch 39). He saw all of us in heaven on rapture day, as John had also recorded in chapter 4 and 5. Both John's and Enoch's vision show an uncountable number of saints around a throne. They both heard worship and praise. Enoch even got caught up in the vision so much, that he joined in the worship. As John had seen "four living ones" about the throne worshipping, so Enoch saw four beings about the throne, and Enoch tells their names, (chapter 40). As the twenty-four elders in Revelation 4 and 5 fell down on their faces before the throne, so did Enoch fall before God, (Enoch 71:2).
Enoch describes what Revelation calls the "New Jerusalem." (Revelation 21:10-11) Both saw it made of stones, clear as "crystal", (Enoch 71:5-6). Enoch does not give as detailed a description as John of the buildings, but Enoch complements John's description by giving a more detailed description of the angels and saints all around that place, (Enoch 71). He also tells us how God looked there.
"By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death: and was not found, because God had translated him, for before his translation, he had this testimony-- that he pleased God."
In Enoch 87:2-3 we find a description of Enoch's rapture.
"As I watched, seven beings in white came from heaven. Three of them lifted me up, and took me to a place high above the earth."
Also in Enoch 70:1-3
"After that, while yet living, I, Enoch, was lifted up from the earth and taken to the presence of the Son of Man and of the Lord of Spirits. I, Enoch, was lifted up on the chariots of the Spirit and I vanished from among men. From that day on I was not counted among mankind, I was taken to the place of the chosen and the righteous."
"After this I was carried to the heavens. I saw the holy angels treading on flames of fire. Their garments were white, their faces and clothing, both, shown like glittering snow. I saw two rivers of fire, that glowed like hyacinth, and I fell on my
face before the Lord of Spirits."
John and Enoch both had visions of heaven. The similarities are astonishing. Yet, it is also amazing at the different parts that caught the eye of each. John noted the size, the number of gates, the foundation, etc., while Enoch saw some of that, he emphasized the saints, the angels, and their worship, and even entered into the worship. Both were shown about by one or more of seven angels, (Enoch 46:2, Revelation 1:1, 19:9-10, 22:6-10). Their
descriptions do not contradict, but harmonize. Enoch's description of God and his throne harmonizes with Ezekiel's, Daniel's, and Isaiah's.
Enoch, being a scribe, had a great interest in books. Therefore while in heaven, he is captivated by that part of heaven. John also mentions books in heaven, (Revelation 5, 10:8, 13:8, 17:8, 20:12-15, 21:7). But Enoch goes much further, and stresses the multitude, variety, and revelations of these books in heaven. Compare Enoch 39:2; 81:1-2; 103:2-3; 104:1,7; 106:19; and 108:7.
Enoch spent much of his time, at first, in the books of heaven. He read history, pre-written. Much of his book is the retelling of the pre-written history that he had read in the books of heaven.
Enoch not only saw heaven, but was escorted to several other places. The location of several of these sites to which he was taken, the Bible calls "sheol."
Sometimes the Bible has the word "sheol" translated "hell," and sometimes "the grave." But "sheol" is not just "hell," but includes hell, as well as paradise, where the righteous souls went at death until Jesus's resurrection. Sheol was the "lower parts of the earth," the "nether parts of the earth," and the "heart of the earth." Sheol is shown in the Bible to include hell, paradise (Abraham's bosom), a great gulf (pit or abyss), and the garden of Eden.
Christ went to the "lower parts of the earth" at His death, but did not go to hell-fire, He was in paradise that day with the saved thief from the cross.
The Jewish people called paradise "Abraham's bosom." Paradise is located in the lower parts of the earth, (Matthew 12:40; Ephesians 4:8-10). "Paradise" comes from the Greek word "paradeisos." It means a park, a pleasure ground, a forest or orchard. In the Septuaguint, the word "paradeisos" is used for the garden of Eden. Before the resurrection of Christ, the righteous saints were taken to paradise. After "the Lamb of God" had provided the atonement for mankind, the saints were liberated from paradise and went to heaven.
"When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. Now that He ascended, what is it, but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth."
Angels carried the righteous souls to this compartment, but men carried their bodies to the grave.
"... beggar died and was carried by the angels to
"Today, thou shalt be with Me in paradise."
Jonah went to paradise while dead in the fish.
"... out of the belly of hell (sheol) cried I..."
"I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me forever."
Jesus was there during the three days and three nights his body was dead.
"thou wilt not leave My soul in hell (sheol), neither wilt thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption."
1 Peter 3:19
"By which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison."
Since the resurrection of Jesus, saints do not go to paradise, but now go directly to heaven.
2 Corinthians 5:8
"...to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord."
"having a desire to depart and to be with Christ..."
Another part of sheol is hell (hades). This is the torment part of sheol, and the lowest part of sheol.
"a fire is kindled... shall burn unto the lowest hell (sheol)."
"thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell (sheol)."
"her guests are in the depths of hell (sheol)."
"rich man... in hell (hades) he lifted up his eyes, being in torment... I am tormented in the flame."
The "great gulf" that was between hell and paradise in the story of the rich man and Lazarus is the "pit," the "abyss," and the "bottomless pit" that the Bible speaks about. Here, fallen angels and many evil demons are shown to be bound.
Now with these things in mind, prepare to have Enoch shake all your concepts of these places. Our minds already swim in wonderment at what the Bible says of these places. But in Enoch, we find a first hand description of one who had a guided tour of these places. He saw some beautiful things, and some horrible things.
"Then I came to a river of fire, that poured out into the great sea that is in the west. I saw all the great rivers, and finally came to a place of great darkness, where all flesh walks. I saw the mountains where it is dark all winter, and there I saw a place where the water of the deep places of the earth pours out. This place is the mouth of all rivers of the earth, it is known as the mouth of the deep. I saw there that it is also the source of the great winds..."
Here Enoch is taken to an entrance of sheol. This entrance is located somewhere in the northern part of the world, where during the winter it is always dark. That puts it in the arctic. Through this opening, fresh water flows outward. Also it is a source of winds that blow out upon the earth. This concept, of an opening to the lower parts of the earth, is hard for men to accept. Many men of the world have already come to the conclusion that there is an extremely large hollow center of the earth. Compare ideas presented in these books:
"The Hollow Earth" by Dr. Raymond Bernard
"The Smokey God" by Willis Emerson
"The Phantom of the Poles" by William Reed
"A Journey to the Earth's Interior" by Marshall B. Gardner
"Have the Poles Really Been Discovered?" by Marshall B. Gardner
"Paradise Found" by William F. Warren
"The Cradle of the Human Race" by William F. Warren
Ancient writings of many peoples speak of a land like unto a paradise that exists in the far north. These people whose ancient writings refer to such a place include the Chinese, Egyptians, Hindus, Scandinavians, Eskimos, and others. The Scandinavians that land "Ultima Thule."
Peoples from many parts of the world have such teachings. From time to time these teachings have re-emerged. In many of the world's religions, remnants of the teaching exists. This should not make us as Christians reject such a concept. Charismatic Christians do not reject prophetic utterances in unknown tongues, simply because some false religions have similar experiences. Rather, we can realize that the devil tries to counterfeit and corrupt many things of God. But we can still seek out the truth in the Bible and "hold fast" those truths.
The Bible does teach much of the inner parts of the earth. The Word speaks more of hell than heaven. Yet, our concepts of the places within the Bible have been "fuzzy" at best. Let's see what Enoch tells us, and compare and validate the teachings with the Bible. Perhaps our "fuzzy" concepts can come in to focus.
Enoch calls the openings to this place "chasms of the earth," (Enoch 18:11).
Once inside this chasm, he saw sights almost beyond description.
"Into this chasm I was taken, until I came to a place that did not have heaven above, nor earth below, a place of neither up nor down, a deserted and lonely place."
Enoch was not in a boat, nor traveling on land. Rather, he was airborne with an angel. So, he is first in an area within the earth where gravity pulls in both directions, so there is no up or down.
In this area, we could call a "bottomless pit," Enoch saw something strange.
There I saw a terrible thing, seven large burning masses, and I questioned in my mind about this place. An angel said: "This is a place between gravity above and gravity below, that has become the prison of the angels that have fallen. These angels here have sinned against the Lord. They were like stars that would not come as commanded. The angels have been imprisoned to keep them from disturbing God's plan. The Lord was angry at these fallen angels and bound them until the end times. At the end of the ages, the Lord will bring them to their final end. Uriel then said to me: "The angels who were sinful with women of the earth will be bound here..."
So, in this abyss, Enoch sees seven bound angels who appear as burning masses flying about. Their sin we do not know, but we do know that there are 207 such masses, at least, now in the abyss area. Uriel says the 200 fallen angels that sinned before the flood are also to be there.
2 Peter 2:4
"For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell (tartaros), and delivered them into chains of darkness to be reserved for judgment..."
"Tartaros" is the proper word here in 2 Peter- not "hell," as we think of hell. "Tartaros" means a dark abyss, a place of punishment. In Greek writings, Tataros was a place inside the earth where the Titans, (giants who were born to the gods, and who were promiscuous with women), were held. Supposedly, when they lost their war with Zeus, they were cast there. The story sounds very similar to the truth Enoch and the Bible teach. The Greek and Roman myths do have a seed of reality in them. Their gods were the fallen angels, and their great heroes were the giants of Enoch's day. The stories, being passed down generation after generation, were corrupted in their form to the Greek myths. (Compare Enoch 19:1)
Then Enoch went to another place. In Enoch 21:7, it says: "Then I was taken to another place, more terrible than the first place- I saw a terrible fire that blazed high, and the place was surrounded by an empty area into which pillars of fire rose. The size of this place I could not tell."
This place Enoch saw is hell. The place the Bible tells us is "prepared for the devil and his angels." It seems to be located in the center of the hollow part of the inner earth, for it is surrounded by the empty area, or abyss, that Enoch just described. Its fiery pillars rose up, and it probably appeared from a distance like a sun to that inner earth.
Then I said, "How terrible and painful is that place to see. Then Uriel, the holy angel, said, Enoch, why do you have such terror? This is the prison prepared for the sinful spirits."
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones, that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited."
"... saw a deep valley burning with fire. The kings and rulers of the earth were thrown into that valley of fire. I watched as they made heavy chains for them. I asked the angel: For whom are these chains made? He answered: These are for the host of Azazel. They will be thrown into the lowest part of hell; their jaws will be covered with heavy stones, as the Lord of Spirits has commanded. Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Phanuel will bind them and throw them into the furnace of fire that day. Thus the Lord of Spirits will have vengeance on their sin, for they become servants of Satan and led astray people of the earth.
On the "new earth", there will be openings, or chasms, for people to look down and see the tormented bodies of the wicked. (See Isaiah 66:22-24)
Hell is the lowest part of Sheol--in the center of the "nether parts of the earth." The empty area around this fiery hell is the "abyss." Now Enoch goes to a third area of Sheol.
"From there I was taken to the third place, and he showed me a large tall mountain toward the West that had four hollow rooms. Inside, it was very large with smooth walls. Very smooth were those hollow rooms, and beautiful to see. Then Raphael, the holy angel, who was with me, answered and said: "These hollow rooms are for the spirits of the dead. These places were created for a gathering place of the souls of mankind. These rooms will hold these souls until an appointed time that shall come in a future time--when a judgment will come upon them. I saw there the souls of men who had died, their voices were praying to heaven. I asked Raphael, who was with me, and said: "Who is that spirit that cries out to heaven in complaint?" He answered: "This is Abel's spirit who was killed by his brother Cain. He will cry out till all of Cain's offspring that still kill others are judged."
These hollow areas are the place the Bible calls "Abraham's bosom," and "paradise." The description does not tell us much of this place--only that it consisted of four parts, and that he saw souls of those who were already there. Paradise is the place Jesus that Jesus told the repentant thief that he ( the thief ) would be with Jesus that same day. So it was in this part of Sheol that Jesus went the day He died on the cross. There, in paradise, He triumphantly released the souls that were imprisoned there. They could go now directly into God's presence in heaven, for the price had been paid (Ephesians 4:8-10).
From there, Enoch went to another part of Sheol.
"From there I was taken to another part where the mountain of fire that burned day and night was. As I approached, I saw seven great mountains..."
These seven mountains are close to one another, and the tops seemed like thrones. This is the throne that God will use as His throne for the final judgment. We refer to this judgment as the "Great White Throne" judgment.
"Michael answered: 'This high mountain, you saw, whose top is like a throne, is like God's throne, and is the throne where the Great Holy One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit when He comes to visit the earth at the end time.'"
These mountains appear to be very near the inside of the chasm that Enoch had been originally brought through. First he had been taken through the abyss to see the fires of hell in the center of Sheol. Since the earth is nearly 8.000 miles in diameter, this means that hell was nearly 4,000 miles within from this opening.
Now Enoch is brought back to the inside shell of the inner parts of the earth. This part of Sheol has three mountains, the center of which is the throne (Great White Throne). Then Enoch notices the trees that are on these mountains. One especially catches his eye:
"One tree I saw was unlike any I'd seen before. Its smell was very fragrant, its leaves and flowers, and wood never withered or aged. Its fruit was like bunches of dates on a palm tree. Then I said: 'Behold, this beautiful tree! How beautiful and pleasant are its leaves and fruit.' Then Michael, a holy and honored angel, who was with me, answered: 'Enoch, why do you ask me about this tree?' Then I, Enoch, answered: 'I wish to learn about everything, but especially about this tree.' Michael answered: 'This ... is the one that no human has the right to touch until the judgment of the Lord's vengeance. When that end has come, then this tree will be given to the righteous chosen ones and to the humble. From this tree's fruit, life will be given to the chosen; towards the north, it will be planted in a holy place by the house of the Lord, the eternal King. At that time, they will rejoice in that holy place; they will partake of the fragrant tree to receive life, and lives will be long– sorrow, pain, toil, and punishment will not touch them.'"
So Enoch sees and describes the tree of life. From there Enoch travels past mountains, valleys, forests--- Continuing, he finally comes to an area abundant in waterfalls. Then a little further East, he sees an area with many fragrant trees. Each following mountain had other kinds of trees--each mountain was like an orchard of that type of tree. Then suddenly, they change direction and move North again, toward the chasm. Finally they pass over the angel "Zotiel," whose name means-"the blaze of God."
"So He drove out the man: and placed at the east of the garden of Eden, Cherubim, and a
flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
So this Zotiel was the flaming sword-like one that God placed to guard the entrance of the garden of Eden. Zotiel was inside the garden, and as Enoch is proceeding back to the entrance, he finally passes over Zotiel, the angel that is charged with keeping mankind from eating of the tree of life.
"I had come to the Garden of Righteousness. In that garden, I saw many large trees that were sweet-smelling, large, very beautiful, glorious, and the tree of wisdom. The tree of wisdom is like a carob tree, and its fruit is like bunches of grapes, beautiful and fragrant, even from afar. And I said: 'This tree is beautiful, very beautiful.' The holy angel, Raphael answered me, "This is the tree of wisdom that your forefather and his wife ate and learned to know evil. Their eyes were opened, and they learned they were naked, and they were driven from this garden.'"
Man has always argued over where the garden of Eden is. They have suggested-- the middle east, Africa, Missouri, Utah, etc. Enoch tells us that the garden of Eden is inside the earth within Sheol. He says it is near the opening of the chasm in the North part of the world. In chapter 77, Enoch divides the earth into four quarters.
"The earth is divided into four quarters. The first-eastern - because man dwelt in that area first. The second- southern- there the Most High descends, and there the One who is blessed forever descends. The third- western - is called waning- because there all the lights of heaven seem to go down. The fourth - northern - which is divided into three parts. The first part contains the dwelling place for man. The second contains seas, waters, deeps,
forests, rivers, darkness, mist. The third contains the garden of righteousness."
So Enoch places the entrance of the garden of Eden in the North part of the world, within the chasm that is there. Does the Bible say anything to confirm or deny this ???
Look at Ezekiel 31: 16-18:
"I made the nations to shake at the sword of his (Pharaoh's) fall, when I cast him down to hell (Sheol) with them that descend into the pit (abyss): and
all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth. They also went down into hell (Sheol) with him that was slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under the shadow of the midst of the heathen. To whom art thou thus like in glory and greatness among the trees of Eden? Yet thou shalt be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth."
So Ezekiel identifies the location of Eden to now be within Sheol, in the "nether parts of the earth." ("Nether" in the Hebrew means "lower parts" or "womb of")
Some question--"Why was this place not flooded and destroyed in the flood of Noah? Well, part of the flood waters came from within the earth and the other part from the clouds and upper thermosphere. After the flood waters came from this chasms, God had the chasms close up to prevent the water from flowing back into Sheol. This caused the water to be upon the earth -- even the mountains were covered. This was God's way to spare Eden and the rest of Sheol. Note in Enoch's description of the flood:
"The water channels were finally removed, and the channels of the earth were closed, and other abysses opened, The water began to run down into these abysses."
Compare Genesis 8:2:
"The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped (closed), and the rain from heaven was restrained."
Compare Ezekiel 31:15:
covered the deep for him, and I restrained the the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed."
There were 12 chasms shown to Enoch (chapters 33 -36 ) Three were in the North, three were in the South, three were in the East and three were in the West. The one that Enoch entered in the North seems to be the main entrance.
In China, there are caves that the locals claim lead down to the center of the earth. Microphones were lowered miles down recently and sounds of pain and suffering were heard. Even more recently similar reports were made about sounds heard where scientists had drilled miles down into the earth. Some have even suggested that large chasms may account for the Bermuda triangle phenomena, and similar phenomena that occurs in other parts of the world. Perhaps there is a relationship, and perhaps not. Enoch, however, does tell us there were 12 chasms on the earth.
Why hasn't mankind located the one Enoch entered? That one is in the arctic area--warm air emerging from it into the cold air of the arctic creates a cloud the obscures this area. Our weather satellites have only been able to get one unobscured photo of that area in all their attempts. That photo is included in this book. It does show a large strange opening that so far scientists have been unable or unwilling to explain.
"It was at the same place that I had seen the storehouses of the winds, mist, and clouds,
especially the cloud that remains over the chasm since the world began."
Other chasms may be hidden in remote, hard to reach areas. Shallow, dangerous waters sometimes surround areas where many ships have been lost. Ships now avoid those areas entirely. The Northern and Southern parts of the world always have a cloud cover and ships avoid those areas because of icebergs. Caves catacomb down and have never been explored in many areas. Planes avoid flying directly over the North Pole area since compasses and altimeters go haywire over the area.
In 1947 Admiral Byrd, while trying to reach the North Pole - flew over an area that was iceless, with lakes, mountains covered with trees, and a monstrous animal resembling a mammoth. All this was reported by radio by the occupants of Byrd's plane. For nearly 1700 miles the plane flew over this area, then returned. After his initial news conference, all news of this was hushed. More information on this can be read in the book:
"The Hollow Earth" by Dr. Raymond Bernard.
In the book, "The Smokey God", written by Willis G. Emerson, we are told of a Norwegian named Olaf Jansen who traveled by boat into the area we are studying. He refers to a central "smokey" sun within the earth. This book deserves more study.
The book-"Phantom of the Poles" by William Reed taught the idea of a hollow earth, He suggests a crust of 800 miles. This would leave 6400 miles of inner diameter for Sheol.
Other strange things have happened to suggest that we don't know the earth as we have so assumed.
In "The Hollow Earth" by Dr. Raymond Bernard, we are told:
-the discovery of a mammoth frozen in ice was found in Siberia, The tusks were removed and wolves came and ate the carcass. Today its skeleton is in the Museum of Natural History in Leningrad.
-the strange fact that the musk ox migrate north in the winter--as do a strange species of bird seen in the far north.
-there is a Scandinavian legend of a land of paradise in the far north known to them as Ultima Thule.
Is there a Sheol? The Bible says so. Did Enoch get a tour of that place? Well, the teaching of Enoch does explain some obscure Scriptures, and also answers some scientific mysteries. These places that Enoch was shown are mentioned in Scripture, and yet our concepts of them have been "fuzzy." Enoch gives a first-hand description of them. His explanations confirm and enlighten many Biblical passages.

THE PURPOSE MISSION, and LAST DAY PLOT OF THESE BEINGS
"BE WATCHFUL, AND STRENGTHEN THE THINGS WHICH REMAIN... IF THEREFORE THOU SHALT NOT WATCH, I WILL COME ON THEE AS A THIEF, AND THOU SHALT NOT KNOW WHAT HOUR I WILL COME UPON THEE."
The Lord does not want to come to us, "as a thief." There is the "IF" in that verse that most ignore. We are not supposed to be surprised by His coming, "if" we are aware and awake. Some things are revealed to us, and we are to know them.
"THE SECRET THINGS BELONG UNTO THE LORD OUR GOD: BUT THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE REVEALED BELONG UNTO US AND TO OUR CHILDREN FOREVER, THAT WE MAY DO ALL THE WORKS OF THIS LAW."
It is the children "of the night", or "of darkness", that are to be taken by surprise by the "day of the Lord." It shall come as a "thief" to them.
I Thessalonians 5:1-11
"BUT OF THE TIMES AND THE SEASONS, BRETHREN, YE HAVE NO NEED THAT I WRITE UNTO YOU. FOR YOURSELVES KNOW PERFECTLY THAT THE DAY OF THE LORD COMETH AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT. FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, 'PEACE AND SAFETY;' THEN COMETH SUDDEN DESTRUCTION UPON THEM, AS TRAVAIL UPON A WOMAN WITH CHILD, AND THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE.
BUT YE, BRETHREN, ARE NOT IN DARKNESS, THAT THAT DAY SHOULD OVERTAKE YOU AS A THIEF. YE ARE ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE LIGHT, AND THE CHILDREN OF THE DAY; WE ARE NOT OF THE NIGHT, NOR OF DARKNESS. THEREFORE LET US NOT SLEEP, AS DO OTHERS; BUT LET US WATCH... COMFORT YOURSELVES TOGETHER, AND EDIFY ONE ANOTHER, EVEN AS ALSO YE DO."
We, as Christians, are to be different that the world. We are "not to be in darkness" and surprised by the Lord's coming.
"BEHOLD, I WILL MAKE THEE KNOW WHAT SHALL BE IN THE LAST END OF THE INDIGNATION (the great tribulation), FOR AT THE APPOINTED TIME, THE END SHALL BE."
Long ago, God appointed a time for the second coming and all the events prophesied. These dates are set and will not be changed. the very idea that God did not know what would happen, and would have to change His planned times because of events that He did not foresee -- is foolish. He warns in Revelation against the very idea that we can add to, or take away from the events just as He outlined them. (Revelation 22:18-20)
Are we not to be concerned by the "when" of these events??? Surely, we are. But there is a passage that many try to appeal to, in order that they might justify "unconcern" toward the times.
"BUT OF THAT DAY AND THAT HOUR KNOWETH NO MAN, NO, NOT THE ANGELS WHICH ARE IN HEAVEN, NEITHER THE SON, BUT THE FATHER."
Jesus, at that time, did not know the time of the rapture and second coming. He had emptied Himself of His omniscience until He was glorified again after the resurrection. Yet, in that same passage we are told to:
"TAKE HEED, WATCH, AND PRAY... COMMANDED HIS PORTER TO WATCH... WATCH YE THEREFORE... AND WHAT I SAY UNTO YOU, I SAY UNTO ALL, WATCH."
We may not know the "day or the hour", but we are not to have a lack of interest in the times. Most who quote from Mark 13:32-37, disobey the whole truth Jesus was trying to tell us there. We are being instructed to "watch" and be alert to the signals of His coming.
II Peter 3:9-10
"THE LORD IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE, AS SOME MEN COUNT SLACKNESS; BUT IS LONGSUFFERING TOWARD US, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE."
Because it seems as though it has been so long, since the promise of His return, and the event itself, some think God has forgotten, or that maybe we are expecting something that will never occur. But God has already appointed a time, and He is not slack, He is just awaiting the salvation of all He can. When His appointed time arrives, He shall come.
We are in the generation.
"THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS AWAY, TILL ALL BE FULFILLED."
Two things pin down the "generation." It will be the generation during which Israel becomes a nation again. this occurred in 1948. It will also be during the generation when Jerusalem will not be controlled by the Gentiles any longer. Since 1967, all of Jerusalem has been under control of the Jews. This is our generation.
Why can't we know the "day" or the "hour?" The word "day" is from the Greek word "hemera". It is the time space between dawn and dark, or the whole 24 hour day. The word "hour" is from the Greek word "hora", meaning a short time, a short season. It is a part of a day. What we are not to know is the exact day, and the exact hour of His coming. Can we come within a year? Or can we come within a month, or a week??? And if we thought we knew the "day", say a Monday...it is already Tuesday somewhere on the earth, since it is round. And if we thought we knew the "hour", say midnight...it is already 1 A.M. somewhere, since the earth is round. Knowing this, God told us that we cannot know the "day" or "hour."
The "times" and the "seasons" are supposed to be discerned by the saints. The word "seasons" is from the word "kairos" means "clock time." This means we are to be aware of how much clock time is left. Just as someone who watches the clock at work, if quitting time is 4:00 and it is 3:30, they are well aware that they are in the last half hour. In the schools, one can tell it is one minute till the bell, by the kids on the edge of their seats, books in their arms, and one foot in
the aisle ready to jump from their seats. In the same way, we are to know the clock time left, so we may be anxiously waiting when the Lord returns.
The word "chronos" is the word for "times" in the Bible. It refers to a fixed or special period of time. We are to be aware of when we are in that special period of time just before the coming of Jesus. God has indicated events we are to see within that last time period, and we are to be well aware that we are in that period. In the work place, those who work Monday through Friday, and have the weekend off, are well aware that on Friday - the weekend is soon to arrive. They know in which time period they are. We too should know we are in the final time period before the coming of Jesus.
Baruch CHAPTER 27.
1. And He answered: Into twelve parts is that time divided, and each part is for those appointed to it.
2. In the first part, there will be the beginning of commotions.
3. In the second part, the slaying of great ones will come.
4. In the third part, many will die.
5. In the fourth part, desolation will be sent.
6. In the fifth part, famine and drought will come.
7. In the sixth part, earthquakes and terror will come.
8. In the seventh part, (this part is missing text).......
9. In the eighth part, may portents and the attack of Shedim.
10. And in ninth part, fire will fall.
11. In the tenth part, rapine and oppression will come.
12. In the eleventh part, wickedness and impurity will be abundant.
13. In the twelfth part, confusion caused by the other eleven parts will grip many.
14. For these parts will be kept till that time, and then will mingle together to increase confusion.
15. Each part will add to the terror of the other parts, and together will the twelve parts make people forget the sorrow of others in those last days.
To Baruch, God does not tell of the seven years, nor of the number of days and months, but rather He tells of the twelve signs of the last 100 years before the tribulation period.
First part--"beginnings of commotions." This refers to the first world war, greater persecution of the Jews, and the devil's last attempt to wipe out the people of God before the Lord's return.
GREAT DESTRUCTIONS OF PAST WARS Note the WAR, its DATE, and the number KILLED
W.W. I 1914-18 9,700,000 W.W. II 1939-45 51,000,000 Korean War 1950-53 980,000 Vietnam War 1961-73 1,500,000 COUNTERFEIT ARMAGEDDON will kill over a BILLION PEOPLE Second part-- There has been more deaths of saints, and of the nation of Israel in this last century than in any period of history.
Third part-- Not only the people of God have died, but WWI, WWII, Korean war, Vietnam, etc. all have brought more deaths than any other century.
Fourth part-- Plagues, earthquakes, volcanoes, etc. have increased many fold in this last 100 years.
Fifth part-- Many go to be hungry in our world, starvation and drought have become deadly killers in our century...Much FAMINE has come to this world, and as these predicted catastrophes do occur as the Bible has told us, we will see the great famines that the Bible has predicted. For the Bible has PREDICTED major famines to come.
Lk. 21:11 "And great earthquakes shall be in divers' places, famines, and pestilences."
Rev. 6:5-8 "...A measure of wheat for a penny."
Mt. 24:7-8 "...famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in divers' places."
Mk. 13:8 "And there shall be famines and troubles, these are the beginnings of sorrows."
Sixth part-- Earthquakes and volcanoes have greatly increased... The increase in the number of major earthquakes has violently increased in number and intensity in the last number of centuries. CENTURY MAJOR EARTHQUAKES 13th 84 14th 115 15th 137 16th 174 17th 258 18th 378 19th 640 20th over 3000
Seventh part-- We do not know what this sign is, it is missing from the text.
Look again at the eighth part- Portents are foretokens, or omens, that foreshadow ominous events. There have been many signs of things to come, possible disasters, that have caused many to fear. The event called the attack of the "Shedim", needs explanation. Recalling from the notes on Baruch 10:8, the Shedim were the satyrs (genetically engineered part goat, part fallen angel beings of ancient past, the Italians knew them both by the name of "Fauns") Their spirits are now fallen demonic powers, and they have motivated witchcraft down through the ages. Actually, the "shedim" includes not only the satyrs, but also the sileni (part horse, part fallen angel), and their spirits are to make an all out attack on God's people in the final century before the end tribulation. Witchcraft is being taught by children's cartoons, animated computer games, and board games (dungeons and dragons, etc). The demons inspiring such get into the minds of their converts, and encourage the mass killings at schools and churches that we have recently seen. They are attacking mainly Christians, if you notice, and the world is at a loss to explain what (or who) motivated the culprits to do such acts. Baruch is told the instigators are the "shedim".
The events of the ninth part says "The fire that will fall." Descendants of half human and half fallen angel beings still exist in sheol, and under the oceans. These are responsible for many of the UFO sightings. In the last days, knowing their time is short, they have in this last century done many abductions (continuing on with their genetic experiments), and have taunted, and harassed many with their sightings. Some of these craft have burned and fallen to the ground, and the incidences of such will increase now. God will cause these UFO craft to burn, for their will attempt, as never before, to do harm to Christians. The judgment of God on them will bring many to a fiery end.
Along with this, fallen angels, who have so far stayed hidden to avoid the abyss wherein many of their comrades have been imprisoned will (knowing the end is near) begin to try to do their long-awaited murderous acts. As fire, which angels can appear as, they will also fall.
In the tenth part, we see ‘rapine’ which is the act of plundering, seizing, and carrying away by force. This is common to our world as war, rioting, looting, etc. have occurred uncountable times.
The eleventh part, i.e. the wickedness and impurity, homosexual revolution, satanic and witchcraft on the rise, fornication and sexual uprising, drug abuse, etc. are all too common. The sinfulness and perversions of our age need little description, for we are all well aware of its immenseness.
The twelfth part, i.e. the confusion and terror from such events of the last century have certainly come to our world. We are not to allow fear to come due to these things. We have an Almighty God Who is in control. We need to be ready for such events, and some will likely precede the tribulation . For we are told that when these things "begin to come to pass." we are to "look up." Too many look to the horrible event, and fear! Fear is an all-consuming thought pattern. It is the natural consequence of these mind-boggling events that transpire. But it is demonically inspired.
"Men's hearts (minds) failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken."
God is to be feared, but not by we, the Christians. We are to "look up" for our "redemption draweth nigh" when these things are "beginning to come to pass."
II Timothy 1:7
"GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND."
I JOHN 4:17
"HAVE BOLDNESS IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT."
The ‘aliens’ are beings that were born to evil ancestors, on the side of the devil in the ages long battle against our God and His redeemed ones. Beings do exist, their motives are evil, their leader is the devil. They have odd looks, and work strange ways. We need to draw near to our Lord, live as the Bible directs, and look up for our redemption.
The prophet Baruch gives instructions for this last times.
Consider how Baruch, in chapter 70 of his prophecy, explains this time and its events:
1. Listen to the interpretation of the last black waters to come:
2. Behold! the time will come when that age has ripened the good seed and the bad seed.
Then shall the Mighty One bring upon the earth's wicked agitation of their spirits, and numbness of their minds.
3. They will hate each other, provoke each other, and the cruel ones will rule over the decent ones.
Those who are of evil nature will be preferred to those with moral and ethical standards.
4. The majority will be dominated by the minority, and those who are void of goodness will rule the morally strong.
The slothful will share the abundance of those who worked hard to earn their wealth. Those who are insulting of the Mighty One will exalt themselves above the champions of the Mighty One.
5. The wise will be silent, and the foolish will utter things which have no verification.
The mighty of the earth will give counsel that proves to be worthless, and the hope of the sinners will never prove genuine.
6. When those things which were predicted come to pass, confusion will come upon mankind,
some will die in warfare, some will die in their fears, some will commit suicide.
7. Then the Most High will reveal peoples prepared earlier to war on the evil leaders still surviving.
8. Whoever survives the war will die in the earthquake,
those who survive the earthquake will die in the fire, and those who survive the fire, will die in the famine.
9. Those who survive all of those will be delivered to the hands of My Servant, the Messiah.
10. For the earth will consume its occupants.
(Notes about the writings of Baruch: This prophetic book is unknown by most Christians of our day. And yet, it has a message for our day, and like all of Scripture, it gives another piece of the puzzle of God, helping to further understand His revelations. Irenaeus (V 33) quotes a saying that is attributed to Jesus on the authority of Papias, and this saying of Jesus is a quote from the Apocalypse of Baruch. Thus we know that Jesus was familiar with this Apocalypse of Baruch. Therefore, when Jesus showed the apostles the things in "all the prophets concerning Himself.", He had to have shared with the disciples the prophecies within this book. This book, though not included in the canon founded by Jerome and Augustine, is found in the canon of the Ethiopian church (a body of believers unhindered by the apostasy of the dark ages of the church). The whole (almost complete) text was found in the 1800's after having been hidden by the Catholic church within its sealed libraries) in the Ambrosian library in Milan... by Ceriani. This Syriac version shows internal evidence of having been translated into the Syrian language from Greek, and the Greek having been translated from the original Hebrew. The text shows that Baruch and Jeremiah were commanded to leave Jerusalem by God, for He was about to judge the city and nation for its sins. Baruch entreats God for the city, and God shows him that the judgment is only temporary. When the Babylonians come to judge the city, Baruch sees angels come to save some of the sacred vessels of the Temple, and hide them in the earth. The angels then help the Babylonians overthrow the walls of Jerusalem. Jeremiah goes to Babylon to comfort the captives, and Baruch mourns over Jerusalem, denouncing the Babylonian captivity. He talks with God about God's method of healing the nation, and a revelation is promised to him. God skips ahead to the final judgment of the nation (the tribulation period) showing Baruch that there will be two jubilee periods in which signs will occur announcing that final judgment period. The glories of the Messianic kingdom (the Millennium) are unfolded to Baruch. Within such glories, Baruch sees a vision of a wooded hill with a vine growing at the foot of it. A spring by such vine grows larger until it washes away all the trees but one cedar, which also later falls.. Then, Baruch is shown the punishment of the wicked and the final rewards of the righteous. He is shown 12 showers of rain, some bright and some dark, and a final shower darker than any before... closely followed by a bright light. The prophecy ends with a letter of instruction to God's people. The Apocalypse of Baruch shows that Baruch was familiar with Jeremiah's book, the Psalms, and the Book of Enoch. There are frequent echoes of them within this prophetic book. Ezra shows in the Prophecy of Ezra (II Esdras) that he was very familiar with the Apocalypse of Baruch. The name "Baruch" means "blessed". He was the son of Neriah, the brother of Seraiah. He was King Zedekiah's chamberlain (Jeremiah 51:59). He was a friend of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 32:12), and an attendant to Jeremiah (Jeremiah 36:10). Baruch was from a noble family (Jeremiah 51:59, Baruch 1:1). Baruch was accused of having influenced Jeremiah to have the people stay in Jerusalem (Jeremiah 43:3); was taken with Jeremiah to Egypt (Jeremiah 43:6, Antiq. X ix 6), where Jerome says he died shortly after his arrival there.) __________________ murjahel John
