Why have the number of UFO sightings reached an all-time high?


Data from the National UFO Reporting Centre in Washington has revealed that the number of UFO sightings has shot up to 45,000 a year. More than 100,000 UFOs have been seen in the last 100 years

Are UFOs real—and if so, what are they? Does the Bible speak of UFOs? Was God an ancient astronaut? Are we being visited by non-earthlings, and if so, who are they and what do they want? Who will ultimately rule space? You can know! And the answers will astound you!

–Part One–

UFOs Exist…

      In this supposed age of reason, public officials and scientists find themselves facing a new wave of interest in unexplained phenomena. UFO sightings, testimony about alien abductions, and government agencies dabbling in telepathy have produced a steady stream of headlines.

      A 1996 Gallup Poll revealed that nearly 75 percent of Americans believe in UFOs and/or extraterrestrial life, and that 3 percent even believe they’ve been abducted—that’s over 8,000,000 people!

      The mysteries of parapsychology, life after death, “crossing over,” astrology, UFOs, and the occult are “in” these days, while traditional Christianity is considered “out,” “old fashioned” or even downright fraudulent. One reporter said nearly every person he met at UFO conferences and cults claim they “used to” belong to a Christian church. Generally, they left and began seeking other answers when a Christian parent or leader could not—or would not—take their experiences and inquiry seriously enough to respond with sound biblical answers. You will be given strong biblical answers in this booklet.

      The phrase “flying saucers” came into vogue when, on June 24, 1947, a pilot named Kenneth Arnold sighted nine shining “disc-shaped” objects while flying through the Cascade Mountains. Arnold described the objects to the news media as appearing to be “skimming like a saucer does on water.” This event is widely regarded as the beginning of modern “ufology” (a buzz word for UFO buffs).

      Millions wonder, “Do flying saucers exist, and is man alone in the universe? Is there life on other planets, and are we being visited by alien beings?” These are perplexing questions, and few subjects are as intriguing.

      The facts are in. Yes, UFOs are real! They exist! But what arethey? The answer may astound you!


UFOs” In the Bible?

      We find in the first chapter of the book of Ezekiel a description of four living creatures called cherubim. Cherubim are the highest order of angels. From Ezekiel’s description of them, they appear to have been compound figures, unlike any other object in nature; they actually possessed the features of several animals (Ezekiel 1:1041:18–19). But notice how they moved: “Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.… And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went” (Ezekiel 1:9,12). In other words, the cherubim, having four faces, each facing a different direction, moved at right angles. They did not have to bank a curve. Verse 14 speaks of their coming and going as being lightning fast. Ezekiel 1:15–21 and 10:9,17 speak of the cherubim in connection with “a wheel in the middle of a wheel,” as though it were some kind of gyroscope.

      UFOlogists have been quick to seize upon this as a description an “other world” unidentified flying object. The Bible, however, explains its own symbols. Ezekiel was describing the “portable throne” of God and the angelic beings who transport it, not aliens from another planet. Ezekiel 1:28 explains in context, “As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.”

The Plain Truth about UFO's

A Former Post, but still worth the re-post!  UFO's are Real- Just not what you think!

By Bob Barney: 


UFO's are real, but they are not little green men from Mars or other planets in some solar systems.  Most UFO's (an the term means UNIDENTIFIED flying objects) have been and still are of this world. Weather phenomena, secret military aircraft and even hoaxes make up the first type of UFO sightings.  There is a second type of UFO that we will IDENTIFY!  If you believe in God, and the God who inspired the Bible, then in the pages of that Bible is the plain explanation of what these types of UFO's are... They are ANGELS!  Don't believe me, read the Bible:

The Plain Truth's Red Letter Edition Bible (my notes in blue)

1 On June 24th(5th day of 4thmonth) of my 13th year, while I was with the Judean exiles beside the Kebar River in Babylon, the heavens were opened to me, and I saw visions of God(Elohim-The Godhead).

                13 is the number of Joseph's youngest son—The USA 2 This happened during the fifth year of King Jehoiachin's captivity. 

The LORD(Jesus) spoke his word to me (the priest Ezekiel), son of Buzi, in Babylon by the Chebar River. The power of the LORD(Jesus) came over me(Ezekiel).


As I looked, I saw a tornado coming from the north. There was an immense cloud with flashing lightning surrounded by a bright light. The middle of the lightning looked like glowing metal.

In the center of the cloud I saw what looked like four living beings. They were shaped like humans,

but each of them had four faces and four wings.

Not only were there four distinct living creatures, but each of the four had four faces, making sixteen in all. The four living creatures of the cherubim answer by contrast to the four world monarchies represented by four beasts, Assyria, Persia, Greece, and Rome ( Daniel 7:1-28&nbsp[wink]. The Fathers identified them with the four Gospels: Matthew the lion, Mark the ox, Luke the man, John the eagle. Two cherubim only stood over the ark in the temple; two more are now added, to imply that, while the law is retained as the basis, a new form is needed to be added to impart new life to it. The number four may have respect to the four quarters of the world, to imply that God's angels execute His commands everywhere. Each head in front had the face of a man as the primary and prominent one: on the right the face of a lion, on the left the face of an ox, above from behind the face of an eagle. The Mosaic cherubim were similar, only that the human faces were put looking towards each other, and towards the mercy seat between, being formed out of the same mass of pure gold as the latter ( Exodus 25:19 Exodus 25:20&nbsp[wink]. In Isaiah 6:2 two wings are added to cover their countenances; because there they stand by the throne, here under the throne; there God deigns to consult them, and His condescension calls forth their humility, so that they veil their faces before Him; here they execute His commands. The face expresses their intelligence; the wings, their rapidity in fulfilling God's will. The Shekinah or flame, that signified God's presence, and the written name, JEHOVAH, occupied the intervening space between the cherubim Genesis 4:14 Genesis 4:16 , 3:24 ("placed"; properly, "to place in a tabernacle"), imply that the cherubim were appointed at the fall as symbols of God's presence in a consecrated place, and that man was to worship there. In the patriarchal dispensation when the flood had caused the removal of the cherubim from Eden, seraphim or teraphim (Chaldean dialect) were made as models of them for domestic use ( Genesis 31:19 , Margin; Genesis 31:30&nbsp[wink]. The silence of the twenty-fifth and twenty-sixth chapters of Exodus to their configuration, whereas everything else is minutely described, is because their form was so well-known already to Bezaleel and all Israel by tradition as to need no detailed description. Hence Ezekiel ( Ezekiel 10:20&nbsp[wink] at once knows them, for he had seen them repeatedly in the carved work of the outer sanctuary of Solomon's temple ( 1 Kings 6:23-29&nbsp[wink]. He therefore consoles the exiles with the hope of having the same cherubim in the renovated temple which should be reared; and he assures them that the same God who dwelt between the cherubim of the temple would be still with His people by the Chebar. But they were not in Zerubbabel's temple; therefore Ezekiel's foretold temple, if literal, is yet future. The ox is selected as chief of the tame animals, the lion among the wild, the eagle among birds, and man the head of all, in his ideal, realized by the Lord Jesus, combining all the excellencies of the animal kingdom. The cherubim probably represent the ruling powers by which God acts in the natural and moral world. Hence they sometimes answer to the ministering angels; elsewhere, to the redeemed saints (the elect Church) through whom, as by the angels, God shall hereafter rule the world and proclaim the manifold wisdom of God ( Matthew 19:28 , 1 Corinthians 6:2 , Ephesians 3:10 , Revelation 3:21 , 4:6-8&nbsp[wink]. The "lions" and "oxen," amidst "palms" and "open flowers" carved in the temple, were the four-faced cherubim which, being traced on a flat surface, presented only one aspect of the four. The human-headed winged bulls and eagle- headed gods found in Nineveh, sculptured amidst palms and tulip-shaped flowers, were borrowed by corrupted tradition from the cherubim placed in Eden near its fruits and flowers. So the Aaronic calf ( Exodus 32:4 Exodus 32:5&nbsp[wink] and Jeroboam's calves at Dan and Beth-el, a schismatic imitation of the sacred symbols in the temple at Jerusalem. So the ox figures of Apis on the sacred arks of Egypt.

7 Their legs were straight, their feet were like those of calves, and they shone like polished bronze.

They had human hands under their wings on each of their four sides. All four of them had faces and wings.

Their wings touched each other. The beings went straight ahead, and they did not turn as they moved.

10 Their faces looked like this: From the front, each being had the face of a human. From the right, each one had the face of a lion. From the left, each one had the face of a bull. And from the back, each one had the face of an eagle.

11 Each had two pairs of outstretched wings – one pair stretched out to touch the wings of the living beings on either side of it, and the other pair covered its body.

12 They went in whatever direction the Spirit(ruwach) chose, and they moved straight forward in all directions without having to turn around.

13 The living beings looked like burning coals and torches. Fire moved back and forth between them. The fire was bright, and lightning came out of the fire.

14 The living beings ran back and forth like lightning.

15 As I looked at them, I saw {what appeared to be a gyro} [wheel] on the ground beside each of them.



16 The wheels sparkled as if made of beryl. All four wheels looked the same; each wheel had a second wheel turning crosswise within it, {like a gyroscope}.

17 Whenever they moved, they moved in any of the four directions without turning as they moved.

18 The rims of the wheels were large and frightening. They were covered with eyes.

19 When the four living beings moved, the {gyros}[wheels] moved with them. When the living beings rose from the earth, the wheels rose.

20 Wherever their Spirit(ruwach) wanted to go, the beings went. The wheels rose with them, because the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.

21 So whenever the beings moved, the {gyros} moved. Whenever the beings stood still, the {gyros} stood still. And whenever the beings rose from the earth, the {gyros} rose with them, because the spirit of the living beings was in the {gyros}.

Wheels: gyros -When the heavens opened and the prophet Ezekiel saw visions of God, he saw four living beings, each with a wheel on the earth beside the beings (Ezek 1:15)—and the appearance of each wheel and their construction was as "a wheel within a wheel" (v. 16). Their construction were as gyroscopes used for navigation. And the texture of Scripture is as wheels within wheels, or as shadows in a hall of mirrors. It is this texture of Scripture that navigates disciples into the promised land of Christ’s rest.

22 There was a surface spread out above them like the sky. It sparkled like crystal. 

23 Under the dome, each being had two wings that were stretched out straight, touching one another. Each being had two wings that covered its body.

24 When the beings moved, I heard the sound of their wings. The sound was like the noise of rushing water, like the thunder of the Almighty(Shaddai-Shadday), like the commotion in an army camp. When the beings stood still, they lowered their wings.

The Almighty God is Jesus! Jesus! See verse 28

25 A voice came from above the dome over their heads as they stood still with their wings lowered.

26 Above the dome over their heads was something that looked like a throne made of sapphire. On the throne was a figure that looked like a human.

The Godhead appears in the likeness of enthroned humanity, as in Exodus 24:10 . Besides the "paved work of a sapphire stone, as it were the body of heaven in clearness," there, we have here the "throne," and God "as a man," with the "appearance of fire round about." This last was a prelude of the incarnation of Messiah, but in His character as Saviour and as Judge ( Revelation 19:11-16&nbsp[wink]. The azure sapphire answers to the color of the sky. As others are called "sons of God," but He "the Son of God," so others are called "sons of man" ( Ezekiel 2:1Ezekiel 2:3&nbsp[wink], but He "the Son of man" ( Matthew 16:13&nbsp[wink], being the embodied representative of humanity and the whole human race; as, on the other hand, He is the representative of "the fulness of the Godhead" ( Colossians 2:9&nbsp[wink]. While the cherubim are movable, the throne above, and Jehovah who moves them, are firmly fixed. It is good news to man, that the throne above is filled by One who even there appears as "a man." (Jamieson)

27 Then I saw what he looked like from the waist up. He looked like glowing bronze with fire all around it. From the waist down, he looked like fire. A bright light surrounded him.

Messiah is described here as in Daniel 10:5 Daniel 10:6 , Revelation 1:14 Revelation 1:15 .


28 The brightness all around him looked like a rainbow in the clouds. This was the way the glory of the LORD(Jesus) appeared to me. When I saw it, I fell face down in the dust, and I heard someone's voice speaking to me.

rainbow-the symbol of the sure covenant of mercy to God's children remembered amidst judgments on the wicked; as in the flood in Noah's days ( Revelation 4:3&nbsp[wink]. "Like hanging out from the throne of the Eternal a fing of peace, assuring all that the purpose of Heaven was to preserve rather than to destroy. Even if the divine work should require a deluge of wrath, still the faithfulness of God would only shine forth the more brightly at last to the children of promise, in consequence of the tribulations needed to prepare for the ultimate good" [FAIRBAIRN].



So, as you can see, the Bible gives the only extra-terrestrial version of a UFO. It is Jesus or and Angel! It's that simple.  What is happening in China is one of these two examples mentioned above. Man made, or God made.  I suggest as of now, these are man made of some sort, be it a hoax, or military craft.
