Hi! RevDeb here. The information that you will
find on this page and any of the pages following this, that has to do with spacecraft,
aliens, extraterrestrial contact, etc., is information that some of you may
feel is "over the edge". This particular section is just for you!
You see, some of us believe in these things without question, some of us believe
because it has been proved to us, and some of us are just open-minded and believe
that in this reality
anything is possible. We are introducing you to these
pages not to make a believer of you, but to show you why some of us CAN and
DO believe. Think of us as you will; it makes no real difference to us what
you think. What does make a difference to us is IF you FEEL that we are just
a bunch of mindless stupid humans that have no basis at all for our beliefs.
All we ask of you at this point is that you get out of your own personal belief
system long enough to look at the following pages with an open mind and an open
heart. On just a personal note here, if you are wondering why I believe in UFO's,
then read about my dream. Thank you!
Special Note: During this discourse you will see many pictures that have been put together from several different sites on the internet. The addresses for these sites will be given at the appropriate places. However, if you will click your mouse on these pictures you, will be shown a different version of the picture. The differences may be just in size and/or clarity, but in some of them I have taken the pictures into a graphics program and lightened them up or have played with the contrast, and I have also smoothed some of them out and possibly taken out noise. I have NOT tampered with adding or taking out images! With research you can even track down the originals, or if you have a yearning to travel, you could also go to the museums that most of the original artwork is located at.
Additional Note: For those of you that are already believers or if you are, like myself, a history buff, I KNOW you will enjoy the following!
As you are reading the following verses, if you choose to do so, then perhaps the best way that you could see things the way some of us do, is to imagine yourself 2,000-5,000 years ago. You've never seen a light bulb, you've never seen a car, a telephone, a lock, or even a drinking glass. When talking to others about this ability to see through the eyes of someone a couple of thousand years ago, I usually use the New Jerusalem from the book of Revelation in the Bible:
REVELATION 21:10-23 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. 11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper (reddish brown to brick red in color); the second, sapphire (black, blue, pink, yellow or white in color); the third, a chalcedony (blue in color); the fourth, an emerald (green in color); 20 The fifth, sardonyx;(brownish red color) the sixth, sardius (yellow to brown color usually banded); the seventh, chrysolyte (pale green in color); the eighth, beryl (pale blue, colorless, deep red, green, gold or pink in color); the ninth, a topaz (deep yellow orange to colorless in color), the tenth, a chrysoprasus (green in color); the eleventh, a jacinth (deep red, yellow to colorless in color); the twelfth, an amethyst (deep purple to almost clear in color). 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. 22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
In this exercise picture in your mind the wonderful mothership from the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Remember the colors flashing on the bottom of the ship to match the tones and colors that the humans were playing to the ship? Now at this point sit back, relax, and just imagine that you are John - 2,000 years ago - in exile, on an island alone in your contemplation and a mothership like the one in that movie comes out of the sky in front of you. How would you describe it? I personally think that most Christians either feel that the Bible is nothing but symbolism, especially when talking of the book of Revelation. HOWEVER, if you can open yourself up just enough to look at this through eyes from 2,000 years ago, then at least be honest with HOW you could have described this ship better yet how do you think that John would have described a flashlight to someone else of his age? When you can take a closer look at other things that are mentioned by John in Revelation, then perhaps you could begin to see that maybe just maybe some of the beasts that were described could be something from THIS time being described by a man of THOSE times. Helicopters, tanks, missiles, and submarines - these are things that could have been shown to John in which he would describe in the manner of his day, which to us in these times might see only as symbolism. But there is one thing that we can be sure of right after his descriptions of the beasts there comes the quote: REVELATION 13:10 "He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints." This tells us that John was definitely talking about weapons of war!
As I said earlier, I am not attempting to change
anyone's personal belief systems, I just want each of you to be able to understand
more fully how others may see things and believe things differently than you
do. Some of us believe that there are definitely signs in the sky
that some of these signs can be in the clouds as clouds do tend to make formations
that cannot be fully explained. Tuella, a past employer of mine, taught me that
when lenticular clouds form it is
due to three or more ships moving into our atmosphere. The more layers the lenticular
clouds have the more ships that are coming in.
One more thing that might do you well to know is that most historians believe that when the ships that brought the pilgrims to the Americas landed and unloaded the natives of this area thought that they were seeing people come out of a whale. They had never seen a sailing vessel before; therefore it wasn't in their reality. So they simply adapted something that did fit their reality a whale.
Now that I've hopefully taught you how we may perceive some things differently, perhaps you might now go through the following list of Bible verses that I've pulled out that show ME that the Bible speaks of ships, craft, extraterrestrials, and a few other non-earthly things. Keep in mind these are just a handful of verses, there are many many more depending on which Bible you use *smile*.

when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning
lamp that passed between those pieces.

EXODUS 14:19 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: 20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.
