#8 The strange phenomenon those people with me and I witnessed is described nearly perfectly in The Bible…
The following is an excerpt from Chapter 14 in the book Eminent Discovery. It conveys the idea that the other people who were with me and I experienced happenings and received information that are similar, to varying degrees, to passages in The Bible – from Genesis through Revelations.
(My motifs here are simply to convey the information as accurately as I can. You can confidently consider that I still consider myself a Christian.)
(The drawing is an episode when my friend and I saw and heard who we were told was the Arch Angel Michael. He seemed to be nothing more than a brilliant light … at the Sheridan Creek Fireguard Cabin, Wyoming during the summer of 1957.)
From Chapter 14 of the book Eminent Discovery: (…the information improved in some cases)
…I re-read the Bible and discovered the same phenomenon I had witnessed was somewhat accurately described at various places from Genesis through Revelations. The manifestation of angels from and God himself in a cloud (cloud of fog?) seemed extremely important. God spoke from a cloud several times and from other places where the prophets couldn’t see him, just as I and those with me heard a voice from what seemed to an invisible being who was sometimes in a cloud or fog – and was sometimes not.
In most all cases the people in the Bible didn’t see God, but just heard Him. And there seemed to be manifestations of not only clouds, but in a very few cases, small whirlwinds. Moses even talk with God who spoke from a burning bush – what I imagined was similar to the bush that Don and I saw being consumed by what seemed to be a small tornado, which could have been described as a whirlwind or swirling smoke. And Paul was blinded from a light from Heaven and he heard a voice speak to him – it was “the Lord.” I and those with me also saw a light that was so bright we couldn’t keep our eyes on it. We then received information from someone we couldn’t see. (That someone was identified as the Arch Angel Michael at one time during the lengthy Sheridan Creek Fire Guard Cabin Encounter.) (What seemed to be the same light was seen and the voice heard by others and me intermittently during the entire 46+ year period of my encounters.)
Some of the angels of the Old Testament seemed to be ordinary men who surprisingly appeared from out of nowhere, just like the men we saw who seemed to arrive from nowhere, especially during the long encounter just behind the Sheridan Creek cabin and other encounters like it. Even the Transfiguration episode that involved Christ, Moses and Elijah was most pertinent: Moses and Elijah (who had already gone to Heaven) seemed to appear from out of nowhere and there seemed to be a bright light that made them and Jesus shine. Then a cloud overshadowed them and what must have been “God” talked to them from the cloud.
The brilliant light that shone down from several craft also made others and me shine or be visually transfigured, especially when others saw my bones through my flesh, and when I saw a few others illuminated in some very strange ways.
The future return of Christ on a cloud and the house from which Christ spoke also seemed meaningful. After he was in the house, he moved to other locations rather quickly, as the disciples and others walked and arrived some time later. Could the “house” possibly have been a UFO, and while traveling did Christ defeat the time-space continuum? Will He return in the same fashion? (Could “the house” have been a similar object to what I call “the booth?”)
(What seems to be “the booth” and disc-shaped craft can be seen in several Middle Age paintings, some of the paintings also showing the Virgin Mary and the Baby Jesus.)
I’m not trying to suggest here that I’m on the same spiritual level as the historic Jesus or any better than anyone else, just that what I and others have experienced and witnessed is somewhat accurately described at various places in the Bible. I know many other contactees have experienced the same. The similarities not only validate the truth of my experiences and others’ experiences, but also parts of the Bible.
Unfortunately there is not room here to cover all of the similarities and suggested implications in detail. However, many similarities between UFO phenomenon and the Bible are covered in Dr Jim Deardorf’s book “Celestial Teachings.” The book deals with an old manuscript, “The Talmud of Jmmanuel,” that was discovered through Billy Myers and his UFO experiences in Switzerland. Both books throw even more controversy on the question of UFOs and the Bible. There are also other books that compare UFOs with the Bible. Dr Deardorf was the first, to my knowledge, to point out the possible UFO connotations concerning what seemed to be the unusual house that Jesus got in at times.
(Even though Dr Deardorf degrades Christianity to some extent from what he believes are facts derived from his research, I don’t agree that it degrades authentic Christianity; I believe that my encounters do nothing but support what is written in The Bible in varying degrees.)
A few further similarities of happenings experienced and information received during my UFO encounters:
In Chapter 9 of the book Eminent Discovery I describe a time when I was given a demonstration, out-of-body — a demonstration that seems very similar to what is described as “The Rapture” in The Bible.
Throughout the entire 46+ years of my encounters others and I heard the voice speak to us under a variety of conditions and we very mysteriously noticed what seemed to be normal but strange men who just seemed to have arrived from nowhere. They just suddenly seemed to be there beside us, or we saw them walk up to us. A few times I noticed they came walking out of a volume of distorted atmosphere. They normally knew that we were there and explained to us what was taking place at the time. They also gave us lectures and information related to history, the brotherhoods (ancient and modern), the development of the USA, and the future, etc.
The craft we encountered also can be described to some extent similar to some of the strange phenomenon described in The Bible.
(As an aside note, “the coffin-shaped object” seen during my encounters appeared nearly exactly the same as an object that was shown in a Middle Age painting. The object in the painting was identified by the artist as one of Ancient Egypt’s Celestial Boats.)
The phenomenon we witnessed and the information we were given (including the way it was given) also is similar to many descriptions in The Bible’s Old Testament…and other ancient writings.
