2.7 – ANGELS & ALIENS (12.9.10)

THE GUARDIANS [8c]

Mount Sodom, Israel. A pillar of rock salt known as Lot’s Wife, overlooks the Southwestern part of the Dead Sea, near the presumed location of the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. In both the Hebrew Book of Genesis and the Islamic Koran, Angels traveled to this spot to warn Abraham’s nephew, Lot, that God was about to unleash terror upon the world.

“And the angel finally says to lot, “If you don’t come now with your family two girls and the wife I cannot help you anymore.” It looks as if a countdown was working which could not be stopped anymore, if even the angel cannot stop it.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“Sure enough, they walk away and there is this mayhem and destruction. His wife turns around and she turns into a pillar of salt. Since the Ancient Astronaut Theory proposes that Angels were nothing else but misinterpreted flesh and blood extraterrestrials, this means that extraterrestrials did side with certain people. Were Angels, or extraterrestrials, interfering with human development?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

But if Angels saved Lot and his family from the wrath of God, is this proof that Angels are more than just otherworldly messengers? Might they be more actively engaged in helping their human counterparts, even to the extent that they might still be affecting the outcome of human history? Once again, Ancient Astronaut Theorists look to the Book of Enoch for their answer and claim to have found evidence in its references to a race of Fallen Angels known as Watchers.

“There is much debate amongst religious scholars about the Fallen Angels. And some say they were deliberately sent here to watch over man. And in the Book of Enoch specifically, we have 20 Watchers which are sort of in charge of all the other Angels that are in Enoch’s presence. You have the commanders and the officers and the lieutenants, and those 20 deliberately teach Enoch in various disciplines, such as meteorology, astronomy, how to make better swords. Now, would something like this really happen in the Kingdom of God? I think the answer is clear.”

“Where did they come from? What do they want?  And if we’re dealing with one or more intelligences that maybe they have different agendas, but maybe there is something out there that has been an ally to evolving hominids, and we’re the latest model.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

In the Bible, Angels often appear to humans as physical entities that can be seen, heard, and even touched. But today many people believe Angels are present whether they can see them or not. According to a 2008 survey by Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion, 55% of all American adults believe a Guardian Angel protects them.

“The popularity of Guardian Angels in modern culture I think has to do with the idea that we want some kind of supernatural protection in a world where we don’t really feel very safe oftentimes.”

Thomas E. Bullard, Ph.D. (Folklorist)

The Islamic faith teaches that every human being has not one but two Guardian Angels, one for each shoulder. These celestial beings are called Writing Angels because they write down the good deeds and the bad deeds in each person’s life. The first so-called Guardian Angel to appear in Judeo-Christian texts is the angel Raphael, who was featured in the Book of Tobit, written sometime between the eighth and 2nd-century BC.

“Tobit is off on a very difficult mission. He’s going to go to Persia to find a wife, and he runs into all sorts of problems on the way, so God sends the angel Raphael, and now we have the angel not just as a messenger from God. He becomes a Guardian Angel, he becomes a special protector.”

– Fr. William J. Fulco, Ph.D.
(Archaeologist, Loyola Marymount Univ.)

“The idea of Guardian Angel, is it just because we wish it, we believe it, that somebody’s protecting us, or does it come from the past? Has it to do maybe something with extraterrestrials? In the sense that some extraterrestrials said to some human, ‘We protect you. Don’t be afraid.’”

 – Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“What is the Guardian Angel guarding us from? Why is that Guardian Angel protecting us? And is there more than one? The short answer to that is absolutely, yes. He’s guarding us from what? The Fallen Angels.”

L.A. Marzulli (Author, The Alien Interviews), (Nephilim Trilogy)

“In Judeo-Christian, and Islamic tradition, there was an idea that there will be some kind of final warfare when God defeats Satan, once and for all. That’s been interpreted, by some people, to say that, the aliens will come back; they will fight it out again, one final time.”

Thomas E. Bullard, Ph.D. (Folklorist)

 

Both the Book of Enoch and the New Testament Book of Revelation refers to a final cosmic battle of good versus evil.
