In order to unlock recondite secrets of the Bible, such as the identity and origin of the Elohim, it is necessary to discard preconceived notions of religion and reality taught in school, or even religious organizations. Even that gleaned from personal observation cannot be trusted when navigating dark, obscure waters such as these. Instead an open mind eager to discover forgotten truths, and the ability to see things from a new point of view is required. The biblical writings clearly tell us that these Elohim" cruised the skies of the ancient world in "Heavenly chariots," often cloaked in clouds. But what exactly were these chariots? Were they the UFO's of biblical times? Did the Elohim travel to earth from somewhere else within these "chariots from Heaven?" It is intriguing that modern day UFO's are often described as metallic looking objects hidden within a cloud. In these days of ever increasing, and now blatant UFO activity, it is obvious to most that something bizarre is taking place in the skies over earth. Something so queer it baffles those who should be making serious inquiries into the phenomena, causing them to react in a peculiar fashion themselves - they simply ignore anyone or anything connected with UFO's. This is unfortunate. For in the black days lying ahead for humankind, these unanswered questions undoubtedly hold answers that may determine our ultimate fate. The wholesale return of "Heavenly Chariots" could be a portent of things to come. A thorough analysis of the ancient texts of the Bible and other archaic documents, clearly yields important electrifying information that will revolutionize the way humanity views his religion and his gods - and even how man must perceive the mystery of the UFO itself. To correctly understand what lies before us, we must take a subjective look at what took place behind us; starting at the beginning, the commencement of all life on earth recorded in Genesis. Man must take an intellectual gaze in the mirror of the past to behold the face of his creator(s): "And Elohim (literally) created man in His own image, in the image of Elohim He created Him (the Adam, or earthling, literally); male and female He created them." Genesis 1:27 Most theologians teach that the God of the Old Testament is a solitary, all powerful, omniscient spirit, having no corporeal form; and that he does not possess a flesh and blood body. From a scriptural standpoint, this is simply not the case. Throughout the entire Bible, God is referred to as a male, indicating that he possesses a sex. The above passage hints at the possibility that both male and female "gods" exist. For if the Elohim created the earthlings in their own image, and made them both male and female -- then is humanity not a reflection of its creators, a pluralistic race of beings consisting of male and female entities? Consequently, these plural deities, or beings, are termed the "Elohim," the plural form of God in the scriptures, the prefix "El" meaning God. Though theological scholars are well aware of this plurality, conventional scholars try to pass off the multiple form of God as singular. They state that "Elohim" was intended by the Israelites to refer to the "plentiful all embracing powers of Yahweh." From scriptural evidence alone, we know that the early Israelites and pre-Israelites were anything but monotheistic. And, if one returns to the Mesopotamian roots of Genesis, it becomes abundantly clear that Abraham emerged from a culture that worshipped not one, but many gods, both male and female in nature. Scattered among the various verses in the Bible, we find the diverse pieces of the puzzle describing the physical body of this God in whose image man has been sculpted. Curiously, all the ancient gods and goddesses possessed a human-like physical body. The Greek and Roman gods, as well as the Indian, Egyptian, Hurrian, Hittite, Canaanite, Meso-American, and Norse gods were humanoid in appearance. The Sumerians convey specific, human looking descriptions of their gods, and other ancient pictorial renderings of these beings abound. Couple archaic descriptive evidence, with early Mesopotamian texts, and writings of the Bible, and it is soon obvious we are not dealing with one unseen spirit, but with a race of superior physical beings, both male and female. Re-examining the Bible with this in mind, it is not unusual that God has a face, eats, can be wrestled with, and even walks: "And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day..." Genesis 3:8 NAS. Not only does God walk around, he appears to be man-like: "And the Lord appeared to him (Abraham)...while he was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day. When he lifted up his eyes and looked, behold three men were standing opposite him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the earth, and said, O Lord, if now I have found favor in your sight, please do not pass away from your servant." Genesis 18:1-3. Abraham clearly believes he is seeing a "god." What was so different about these Heavenly visitors that he instantly discerned that they were not humans? These visiting gods behave as average humans; washing their feet (Genesis 18:4), and consuming food provided by their human host; "for Abraham stood by them under the tree as they ate." Genesis 18:8. This God who has eaten a meal beneath the shade tree is obviously not omniscient, since he had to go down and see for himself concerning the goings on at Sodom and Gomorrah: "I will go down now and see if they have done entirely according to the outcry, which has come to Me, and if not I will know." Genesis 18:20-21 NAS. Apparently, the Hebrew God can be argued with, for the remainder of chapter 18 is devoted to Abraham attempting to persuade God not to destroy all of the inhabitants of the two cities. In Genesis 32:34, we again find that God is referred to as a man: "Then Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak." Jacob, victorious in his struggle states: "I have seen God face to face;" Genesis 32:29-30. Jacob also asks the god/man to identify himself, implying that he was aware of the existence of plural deities. Abraham and Jacob were not the only humans to converse with God in a face to face situation, the patriarch Moses also had that unique privilege: "And it came about, whenever Moses went out to the tent, ...the Lord would speak with Moses." Yes, it appears that the Lord used to "speak to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend..." Exodus 33:9 & 11. Moses was not the only Israelite to go up to God, or to see him. "for Moses went up with Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and they saw the God of Israel; and under his feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, as clear as the sky itself. Yet he did not stretch out his hand against the nobles of the sons of Israel; and they beheld God, and they ate and drank." Exodus 24:9-11. The New Testament tells us that Jesus was both the Son of Man and the Son of God. It stands to reason therefore that if he is a combination of someone from Heaven, and someone from earth, then he is in fact a hybrid. The Bible also provides us with a description of what God actually looks like, for Jesus stressed that "...He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how do you say, "Show us the Father?" John 14:9. Logic dictates that if Jesus looked like his father, and Jesus looked like a human being, then this means that God looks like a human being. Genesis 1:27 states that man is created in the "image of God," implying that God looks like a man. Some biblical scholars try to pass the buck by saying that verses which refer to man having been created in the image of his god, are in fact references to his having a spirit like that of God. Though this is true to a certain degree, it is clearly the nature of that spirit that confuses man, for the Lord said, "My Spirit shall not abide with man forever, in his going astray he is flesh;..." Genesis 6:3. Is the spirit of God that which has been incorporated into man in order to make him look like his god? The Hebrew scriptures have consistently rendered the word "neph'esh" as soul; and throughout the Bible, both man and God are referred to as a soul (Genesis 2:7, NAS and Jeremiah 50:14 NWT). Zecharia Sitchin equates the word Neph'esh, or soul, with the spirit in his book The 12th Planet. He points out that the Old Testament exhorts against the shedding of human blood and the eating of animal blood, "for the soul of every sort of flesh is its blood by the soul in it. Leviticus 17:14 , NWT. Apparently, there is a connection between an element in the blood, and the living body of a creature or soul. Curiously, Sumerian and Babylonian texts state that the blood of a god was employed to create man in what appears to be a primitive, yet provocative description of genetic engineering: "Let the one god be slaughtered, then let the gods be cleansed by immersion. Let Nintu mix clay with his flesh and blood. Let that same god and man be thoroughly mixed in the clay...from the flesh of a God let a spirit remain." Note that the gods washed up, or "cleansed" themselves by "immersion," just as modern day physicians would before performing such a procedure. And, it was from the "flesh" and "blood" of the god, that this "spirit" was derived. This enigmatic spirit was to remain in the new type of "man" they were making. Since the DNA of a living creature is found in its blood, this lends credence to the concept that the spirit or soul is synonymous with DNA. If biological engineering took place in the Garden of Eden, then we can clearly understand what the words "in the image of God" really mean. Man, an inferior being, was apparently given a dose of superior genes from his Elohim creators in what must have been an effort to improve him for some reason. And, as the Elohim put their DNA into the bodies of the existing "clay of the earth, in all likelihood, the homo-erectus or ape-man that may have been in existence when this experiment took place, then they also put their "life force" into man. In other words, it was their divine DNA that provided man with an everlasting spirit, like that of his space fathers. It is this "infinite" spirit that could not strive within finite man forever, according to Genesis 6:3, and it was man's "flesh" that was causing the problem. We know this condition as "mortality." It could be that the holographic energy pattern, or spirit of man derived from the Elohim, continues to live once the human flesh is destroyed, and thus it is this pattern that can be reanimated to raise the dead. The spirit pattern of the Elohim generated a physical body capable of supporting it for a much greater span of time than an earthly derived body could provide, due to evolutionary conditions here on earth. Therefore this meant that once the earthly body was used up, the superior template from which it was made could continue on, in a higher dimension. Since everything in the universe, including our bodies are made up from scalar frequencies, then by subjecting this holographic pattern to the correct scalar frequency, it might be possible to regenerate, or resurrect the dead. This concept may be where the ancient Hebrews and others, derived the concept of eternal life, and the regeneration, or resurrection of the dead spoken of in the Bible. (See Matthew 19:29, 25:46, 19:28, John 3:16, & Acts 24:21). If man does in fact possess an "inner body" made up of holographic electrical impulses, then this may be what is made manifest when one sees a "ghost," or specter. This would be the eternal "spirit" inherited from the DNA of the Elohim. The remaining imprint of this energy pattern might even be the kyrillian field which has been photographed in modern times. Egyptian mummies, missing appendages such as fingers, have been photographed with kyrillian photography. The missing fingers are present in the kyrillian aura of the mummy. Since the mummy has been deceased for thousands of years, it is unlikely that this kyrillian aura is the ghost itself. However, the ghost, or spirit, most likely exists in a different dimension, while an imprint of the auric pattern remains with the corpse. The Bible alludes to the existence of ghosts, or spirits, for King Saul visited a medium at En-dor, and had her call up the spirit of the deceased prophet Samuel. (I Samuel 28:7-20). It could be that this inner, hidden body is capable of having what is referred to as an "out of body experience," in which a person voluntarily, or involuntarily leaves the body temporarily, travels on the astral plane to other destinations or dimensions, then returns. The New Testament refers to this type of astral projection experience in II Corinthians 12:2-4. The Apostle Paul describes a man who traveled to the "third heaven,"* or Paradise, to hear "inexpressible words," concerning God. Paul was unsure of whether this occurred "in the body," or "out of the body." He was convinced however, that the man had indeed traveled to the "third heaven." (It is well established in the UFO literature that many abductee/contactees, claim to have had "out of body" experiences with the occupants of UFO's. This apparently, is not an experience confined to modern times, for it seem to be connected to ET encounters in biblical times as well). Bearing all the evidence discussed so far into mind, it would appear that God is a person, with a physical body, a living, breathing, entity possessing the "breath of life." This implies that he is a being who obeys the laws of physics just as all living creatures and matter within the universe. Because man was created "male and female," in the image of his creators the Elohim, then God would inevitably be able to reproduce. The Elohim are mentioned over 3,350 times in biblical writings. Incredibly enough, in early Israel, Hebrew religion did not seek to deny the existence of other gods. Even Bible translators were unable to totally eradicate their existence from scripture as evidenced by this Psalms in which God (YHWH), decrees death to some other gods: "God takes his stand in the congregation of God; He judges in the midst of the gods, how long will you judge unjustly, and show partiality to the wicked? Vindicate the weak and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked. They do not know nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. I on my part said you are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High. Nevertheless, you will die like men, fall like one of the princes." Arise, O God, judge the earth! For it is thou who dost possess all the nations." Psalm 82, NAS. If no other gods existed, it would be unnecessary to order their deaths, or to chide them for maltreatment of human beings. The beginning of the texts indicate that God was in the place where these deities assembled when he issued his decree of death for the failure on their part to judge their human possessions fairly. It is possible that this text alludes to a military coup in which the God of Israel overthrew errant deities on his home planet. The corresponding Mesopotamian text will be discussed in chapter nine. Numerous Mesopotamian documents exist describing attempted takeovers by various factions among the Sumerian and Babylonian deities. From texts such as the 82nd Psalms, and references to the Elohim, it appears that the ancient Hebrews practiced monotheism, the worship of one particular God, while believing that others existed. It would seem that this is true, since God often had a difficult time keeping his little flock from the clutches of other gods. In fact, the first commandment given to the people after Moses descended from the mountain was this: "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me!" Exodus 20:2. If there were no other gods, then why would God need to worry? Surely, after meeting with, and witnessing the miracles of their God, idols of mere wood and stone would have seemed passe. We conclude that other man-like deities did exist, and that those who initially recorded the messages from these beings did not try to remove them completely from the one God scenario. Apparently, these beings communicated with earthlings, just as the God of the Old Testament did, in attempts to woo humans into their domain for their own personal agendas. Psalms 82 indicates that the God of Moses was the most benevolent of all the Elohim in his dealings with the men of earth. From this we ascertain that the Hebrew God is a being of feeling and emotions. He has a sense of right and wrong. He exhibits kindness toward earthlings by defending them from the harsh treatment of "other gods." In conclusion, it is obvious that the Hebrew Deity possessed a physical body (soul) like ours. (He most likely possesses a spirit similar to man's as well). According to ancient writings including the Bible, God originally came from "the kingdom of the Heavens."** He, therefore, appears to be a member of a non-terrestrial race of beings the Bible refers to as the Elohim; beings that Sitchin traced back to the Sumero-Babylonian deities. Which of these deities was the God of the Old Testament, and what was his Sumerian name? If He is an alien being, we are left with other puzzling questions. Just where is this "kingdom of the Heavens"? Where are the Elohim now? Will they ever return? *This "third heaven" is in all likelihood planet Nibiru. This is detailed in chapter twelve. **See Matthew 3:2, reference to literal text in side margin.
