I believe that the devout study of angels will eventually lead a person to the research of UFOs and Aliens. Throughout the Bible, we read about people encountering angels in various forms. In Daniel chapter 10, Daniel is visited by an angel during a fast and the angel tells him that he would have come sooner but he was delayed by The Prince of Persia. The Prince of Persia is what is known as a principality, power or a territorial spirit that is given authority over a region because of the deeds of the people. The angel then tells Daniel that he was assisted by the archangel Michael to help him overcome the principality. This portion of scripture shows that that angels travel from heaven to Earth relaying messages between God and men. I believe that what many are seeing in the sky and are calling UFOs are actually angels of the Lord, or the Hosts of heaven. The book of Enoch goes into much detail saying that even the stars are living and are communicate. They are said to record the deeds of mankind and report them back to God each night.
Chariots of Fire
The Hebrew word for Chariot is the word Merkaba, which literally translates to Vehicle. It was something that a person or being traveled in. These Chariots on many occasions are said to be carried or fueled by fire. The Israelites followed the presence of God as it communicated with them in the form of a cloud by day and fire by night. In many UFO sightings, people have reported to have seen what they call ships that look like clouds during the day and ships that seem to be made of fire during the night. In Ufology people are very familiar with cloud ships and plasma ships. The cloud ships are UFO craft that look like little clouds flying, because some of these smaller crafts hide inside of the clouds as to not be seen by humans. In the Old Testament, God spoke audibly with people communicating as a voice in the clouds. In the New Testament when Jesus is being baptized by John, a voice speaks from the clouds saying “Behold, this is my beloved son; hear him”. The Bible also states that God “rides upon the clouds” and in Acts 1:9 Jesus actually ascends into heaven into a cloud.
In ufology there is also what is known as light or plasma ships. The connection can be made back to the chariots or vehicles of fire in the Bible. Some have stated that they are ships that are carrying occupants and others say that these so called ships are actually living entities like the Seraphim, because some of them change shape and seem to be alive. The Seraphim are a sect of angels believed to surround the throne of God. When mentioned in Isaiah 6, they had six wings. With two they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. They continually sing praises unto the creator shouting “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.” It is interesting to note that word Seraphim literally translates to “fiery serpents”. These angels are made out of the fire of God and are said to carry the knowledge of the higher realms of heaven. The word serpent here is interesting for two reasons. The first is that some people have reported seeing beings in the sky that actually looked like large snakes. Secondly, in antiquity serpents were synonymous with knowledge referring to the Seraphim carrying the sacred knowledge of God.
