It was some 3000 years ago when the parable of Icarus was told. It was long before dreams were labeled impossible and magic flew through the air on the gossamer wings of desire. It was the story of how a young boy's ambitions got the best of him and how he yearned to fly higher than the sea. How did this idea get into his head? Why would anyone want to go beyond the stars? Maybe it was because there were others who traveled across the sky and were seen by dreamers like Icarus. Maybe these beings will come again. Perhaps sooner than you think.
In mythology there is truth. I believe there is some truth in all belief systems. Every belief has relevance. Every myth has relevance. It is through the myths that exist in belief systems essential truths come forward. We learn from these stories and we learn about who we are and we see many icons that tend to show up every time we blow the dust off some bible or old book in the attic.
Here lies the ultimate wisdom. If we read aloud the myths and the legends we can see the time lines cross. Past anecdotes become latter day realities and they unlock the true meaning of the human condition. If we look carefully at ancient artwork and historical data we may see the same stories turn up over and over again. It's like a strange loop that plays out. It's as if man needs these lessons in order to ascend to the next level. Maybe he will be able to do without destroying himself.
Or maybe not.
Daedelus, the story goes, was an artist that lived in the city of Athens Greece. He was jealous of his nephew, Perdix's, resourcefulness, so much so that he plotted his murder. He decided to push him off the highest building in Athens.
As he fell to what was supposed to be his death, Athena changed Perdix into a partridge. Perdix flew away never to be seen again. Daedelus was tried, convicted, of his murder because the body of Perdix was never found. Daedelus was condemned to exile, he moved to the island of Crete.
If you recall it was Daedelus who made the maze which later became the home of the hideous Minotaur. Theseus later killed the Minotaur, which angered King Minos. Minos blamed Daedelus for Theseus subsequent escape and imprisoned Daedleus in the maze with his sun Icarus.
PasiphaŽ, another God secretly released both of them, but Daedelus wanted to return to Athens. And he needed to get there without a moment to spare. Daedelus saw a seagull fly and he wondered if he could fly across the ocean to Athens.
He devised wax copies of gull wings and covered them with feathers. He practiced and flapped his wings and eventually taught himself to fly. He taught his son Icarus how to fly as well. He warned Icarus that he must fly near the ocean and not too high because if he did, the wings would melt in the hot sun.
Icarus took off into the sky and Daedelus said that he should not fly too low because the water would cause the wings to be heavy. Icarus loved flying and wanted to fly even higher beyond the stars. As he ascended into the sky the sun melted his wings. He fell rapidly and hit the ocean killing him.
Ancient man looked into the sky and one-day he decided that he wanted to be like the birds. He wanted to fly. Three thousand years ago the technology to fly didn't exist. Or so we have been told. The technology that led to airplanes and eventually spacecraft was developed in the 20th century.
Astronomy however is the most ancient science. It was the first science that seemed to find itself mingled with religion. The Gods lived in the sky. The planets were given names for the Gods. The shy was where religion had its beginnings.
We pray to the heavens. We send our energies out to the cosmos hoping that some being will hear us. We also send signals into space searching for replies from a possible being that hopefully is looking out for our well being.
There are those of us who believe that a being will come from the heavens to save us if we ever get to a point where we destroy life, and the planet earth. The roots of our ancient civilizations are tied to the sky. Perhaps this is so, because this from which we came.
Humans have tried to reproduce celestial events. His first images appeared on caves. Some images made it to the walls of Pyramids, and ancient churches. They also were reproduced on canvas; many artists in the renaissance periods created holy images and created statues of them.
They have depicted imagery of Gods and prophets. In most paintings the artists gave these Gods the countenance of exhaled beings. Jesus was depicted as a great man with a face that would glow. His mother Mary would possess an aura above her head. However if you look closely at some of these works you may notice something else in them.
You may notice a depiction of a flying machine. A chariot that flies above the landscape. You may see a disc shaped object, or objects that according to our history books never existed in the times of the painters.
These paintings may indeed contain imagery that can very well be the UFO's that many people claim to see and report every day.
The Madonna and Saint Giovannnio by Domenico Ghirlandaio shows a possible UFO image with fire shooting out of it. If this was a mistake by the painter why does he show a man and his dog looking up at it?
These anomalous objects have been in paintings all along. They have been there for centuries. The problem is no one understood what they were until the space age. Until we heard about the possible visitation of anthropomorphic extra terrestrials to the planet.
In most of the paintings these anomalies are in the background as if they are a routine part of the religious experience. For example there are many artist interpretations of the crucifixion that show UFO like images in the background.
La Tebaide was painted around 1460-1465 A.D. by Paolo Uccello. Notice the pink Saucer image near Jesus Christ.
And other artists seem to show that perhaps there were other beings in attendance during the crucifixion of Christ.
"The Crucifixion" was painted in 1350. It can be seen above the altar at the Visoki Decani Monestary in Kosovo, Yugoslavia. In the painting you see two objects that look like comets. When enlarged you see that they are objects that have strange pilots aboard.
How about the idea that at Christ's baptism a saucer that flew above the river Jordan and broadcast "This is my beloved Son?"
"The Baptism of Jesus" s painted by Aert De Gelder in about 1710 AD. Anyone want to venture a guess as to why Jesus told his disciples why he wasn't of this earth?
How can it be? These paintings demonstrate aircraft that allegedly were never seen in the centuries when they were painted. Were they UFO's or are these images something else? How does one explain this picture?
This is a picture of the Glorification of the Eucharist. It was painted in the 1600's by Bonaventura Salimbeni. It hangs in the church of San Lorenzo in San Pietro. It shows the Father, the son, and the holy ghost sitting together with what can only be described as a satellite with antenna.
These paintings are just a few of the many depictions of what appear to be UFO's. UFO's that are present during religious events. The question is, If they are UFO's why are they being placed in a religious context? Did someone hand down the story that these flying machines were at these events?
Are we being told the whole story about UFO's and their place in our religious history?
We cannot give a definitive answer. We do not know hat the artist was trying to say. The images could all be allegorical. If they are what are they symbolic of?
Researchers Daniela Giordano and Matthew Hurley have been researching these alleged "Rennaissaucers" and are in the process of writing a book about the subject. Matthew has developed one of the most interesting collections of what can be called Historic UFO artwork online. His website catalogues all kinds of anomalous images that can be interpreted as being "alien" in nature. The pictures range from those that were placed in caved before the times of Christ and after.
He also has collected Pre 1947 photographs that show anomalous objects that have been in the skies long before anyone spoke of "Roswell" or "little green men."
In past articles we have demonstrated that perhaps the bible and other ancient texts have described the UFO. We have wondered if angels themselves traveled the stars in fiery chariots, and burning shields. We also have wondered if both good and bad extra terrestrials fly around in these craft. We have read that there have been accounts in the bible and elsewhere of ancient appearances of Demons, and angels can very well be extra terrestrials helpers or aliens.
These paintings continue to make a case for UFO's and visitations anciently. It also may be a key to what was written in the book of Luke in the bible. It refers to a prophecy where it can be assumed that aliens will come to earth in the apocalypse. If these paintings reveal that extra terrestrial beings existed anciently then we know that possibly an invasion of the reptilian Nephilim may in fact be a remote possibility in the future.
"And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man."
You may ask yourself how did I come to this conclusion. How does this all fit together? In the days of Noah there existed the Nephilim. They were also referred to as the B'nai Elohim. The story all begins in Genesis chapter 6. From there we read about the beings coming down and mating with the human kind. creating a hybrid offspring. I have covered this topic ad nauseum in my previous articles.
Now these being are referred to 4 times in the Old Testament. They were called the fallen ones in many translations of scripture. The word Nephal is Hebrew for fallen ones. The word Nephilim comes from that word. They were also called gigantes which of course has been interpreted as Giants. When in reality the root form means that they were "earth born." The early church viewed the B'nai Elohim as angels up through the late fourth century.
However that all changed and the idea that the offspring was created by Satan to destroy the bloodline to Christ is the prominent theory that exists and that these beings had to be destroyed in the Flood of Noah. Noah and his family were allegedly not corrupted by the mingling of these beings.
The flood did not destroy all of the Nephilim. We read in biblical texts that the sons of Anak later became the Anakim. They were great giants who had the same characteristics of the Nephilim.
These beings are mentioned as Angels that sinned, or did not keep their first estate. They are known as the notorious reptilian aliens. Many say that these beings are real and that they wish to pervert the order of things. They are allegedly capable of taking on human form. That is of course if you read the Bible. These aliens are allegedly reptilian forms that have existed since the dawn of man.
The biblical references call upon a great leader that will rise up and will declare that peace is achieved through lawlessness. This reptilian hybrid will be known as the anti-Christ. This reptilian hybrid will wage war.
In the book of Daniel there seems to be a scripture that describes the antichrist as a "ruler of fortresses" or "or mansions in the heavens." Could this mean space stations? Space based weapons? UFO's? Maybe even collusion with alien forces. This of course is a coincidence, but this should not be ignored as we hear of Christian fear of the millennial Armageddon and the rule of the fabled antichrist.
"The great king of the north shall rise up against God and worship an alien god. (Alien to the Hebrew God) Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with this strange God. In this estate above the inhabitants, he shall honor the God of forces. He shall honor it with gold and silver and precious stones, and pleasant things."
For fun lets crack open a bible and read what it says in 2 Thessalonians 2
"Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness."
It is also a coincidence that 2 Thessalonians 2 has a hidden number sequence. If we give number value to the letter T in Thessalonians we see that "T' is the 20th letter of the alphabet. So what we get is 2202. The zero has no value so we just remove it.
222. Oh the numbers never cease to amaze me. They all seem to just fall together don't they?
In the alphabetic Hebrew counting system, 222 is RKB, which, pointed as ReKeB, means "chariot". A vehicle of transportation. In the book of Haggai 2:22 God speaks of the power to overthrow all kingdoms and destroy the corrupt. He speaks of destroying the chariots that are the deliverers of war.
"And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother."
Chariots of fire, UFO's here is a depiction of four horses pulling a chariot and strange flying objects above. This is a renaissance illustration is detailed in a book "Prodigiorum liber" by Roman historian Julio Obsequens.
The chariots are the chariots of judgement they are chariots of the air. The man of lawlessness shall use these chariots and will employ the use of the God of forces. The God's of the air. Baalhazor or Baal was known as the lord of the forces or fortresses, the God of battle from the skies.
Ancient texts have described the lord of fortresses as an "alien god" that will pour out war upon the lands. Shadows will fall upon the universe and evil will grow, causing death to come from the skies.
Baalhazor along with other alien Gods such as Baalbamoth, and Baalzebub rule the flying things of the most high places.
The word chariot is mentioned 111 times in the Old Testament.
The 111th time it is mentioned is in the book of Zechariah.
"And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass."
This same scripture was mentioned to me by the spirit of Ephrain in the article Ephrain's warning.
Ephrain warned me that a 9-year war would take place. It would involve the Jews. He mentioned four horsemen, four chariots, and a portal that will open in the future.
He mentioned these words:
He also said Horses four, spirit door.
Later I was being harassed by another spirit who programmed my Microwave Oven with the numbers 444. You can read about it here in Dead Man Talking.
I did research and I found out that:
444 is the gematria or number of the word "DAMASCUS," which is the oldest city in the world; four being the world number. Damascus is located east of the Euphrates River and came under Babylonian domination in approximately 625 BC and lasted until approximately 539 BC. Looking back at the books of Zechariah, the passages that Ephrain told me about I read this in chapter 12:11 about the war that will be waged in Ephrain's prediction:
"On that day the weeping in Jerusalem will be great, like the weeping of Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo."
Hadad was the supreme Baal or God of Fortresses, whose worship extended southward from Carchemish to Edom and Palestine. At Damascus he was adored under the Assyrian name of Rimmon.
Megiddo is where the final war of good and evil takes place. It is known by another name "Armageddon."
The word DAMASCUS also appears on page 444 of the bible that is where you will find II Chronicles Chapter 28:5:
"Therefore the LORD his God handed him over to the king of Aram. The Arameans defeated him and took many of his people as prisoners and brought them to Damascus. He was also given into the hands of the king of Israel, who inflicted heavy casualties on him."
It gets even better. The tri-numeric 2's are the chariots for the tri-numeric 4's. For example it was Cherubim that Ezekiel saw piloting the wheel within a wheel that orbited earth. These "angels" have the distinction of being described as animals rather than human.
Their images have been engraved in ancient artifacts and their descriptions have been associated with Chariots of fire or vehicles that fly in the heavens.
Take a look at these pictures.
These Images are believed to be 5000 years old. They were found in caves of the aborigines.
This image is painted on the wall of a cave located in the Tassili Mountains, situated in the Sahara desert. It is called the "Great Martian God".
As you can see these beings may have co existed with mankind. Maybe even tinkered with his evolution. Maybe even had a hand in bringing about changes in his life.
In the bible again we read how Ezekiel was changed as he witnessed the arrival of the heavenly wheel. He saw the pilots of the ship.
Ezekiel said that they appeared to have four faces:
As for the likeness of their faces, the cherubim, they had a face of a man; and they four had the face of a lion on the right side; and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four had also the face of an eagle.
There are four images that depict cherubim the combination of such images are seen today. There seems to representations of these cherubim as warnings in Egypt. The four names for the minor sphinx are Sed-Alap or Kirub, a bull with a human face; Lamas or Nigal, a lion with a man's head; Ustar, a human; and Nattig, an eagle with a human face.
There are also parallels between the four seasons and also the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and the four gospels in the Bible.
In the book of Revelation we also read of the four headed cherubim. The sphinx is also a symbol of the coming together of the full circle. The full circle of the Zodiac or the oneness of the Cosmos. We have heard of the fullness of times and the changing of the seasons in the parable of the fig tree. In other words we are seeing the changing of the epoch. With the events happening in Israel right now I am beginning to understand what may be happening.
I wrote this article on April 4th 2002.
I realized that it was the end of the Jewish Passover. The most horrific amount of bloodshed ever seen in Israel is happening now. Many believe that this is the war that will usher in Armageddon.
A large amount of UFO sightings were seen over Israel and I paid no mind to it. UFO's were seen in the USA on the east Coast just prior to The September 11th attack.
We see anciently that major events were attended by strange craft or chariots of fire. We are witnessing the most interesting times in History.
That is why the UFO's are being seen. Whatever they are, it is obvious that they appear in ancient texts, ancient scrawls on caves and elsewhere before major changes in the world.
Perhaps they are here to witness the beginning of the end. Maybe they are here to witness the arrival of the antichrist. The numbers always seem to show that perhaps we edge nearer to the truth. That the antichrist may be alive and well. That perhaps we are witnessing the arrival of the beast.
666. Another interlocking tri-numeric scary number.
In case you are wondering the sum of all the numbers from 1 to 666 is 222444.
Oh it's the horrific 666, the number that makes everything interesting. In Roman Numerals 666 is DCLXVI.
D=500 C=100 L=50 X=10 V=5 I=1. DCLXVI is alleged to be an acronym for Domitianus Caesar Legatos Xti Violenter Interfecit or translated it means, Emperor Domitian violently killed the envoys of Christ.
So I am left with the idea that the images, and numbers that I have seen I was meant to see. The World could very well be preparing for Armageddon. I had Ephrain warned me, Izzy teased me, and now the date has arrived for the beginning of the bloody events that could lead to Gog and Magog.
The powerful leaders of the world sometimes believe that we are invincible. They believe that they can fly high. They think that they will never taste death. They get over ambitious and sometimes fly too close to the sun.
Like our tragic friend Icarus.
Alas poor Icarus may have seen the Sun Gods of the skies and wanted to be like them. He didn't heed the warnings.
He was destroyed.
