Following a general trend that has been visible for the last decade, students of Bible prophecy have lately become vocal about what constitutes “permissible discussion” within the limits of traditional biblical interpretation. Subjects that involve the contemporary interactions of Satan, fallen angels (nephilim), spiritual phenomena, and the connection between the powers of heaven and Earth have often been declared “off limits.”
This article attempts to show that we are now living in the times called the “last days,” or “latter days,” by the prophets and Apostles. That being the case, it can be expected that certain concealed phenomena will become increasingly visible in the times that immediately precede the seven-year period when the Lord judges the world. The discussion of formerly taboo biblical subjects must, therefore, be widened.
The prophet Joel writes of frightening heavenly phenomena and earthly disorder “before” the Day of the Lord arrives. It seems that we are living in that period of time. Malachi says that the prophet Elijah will be sent to the spiritual leaders of Israel during this same transitional period. Upheavals will occur, including pestilence, earthquakes and numerous wars. Many believe that since Israel’s 1948 statehood, there has been a “quickening” – the increasing appearance of dark spiritual phenomena, as sinister powers in the heavens realize that the time of their earthly rule during the days of the Antichrist draws near.
The Bible makes it very clear that dark forces exert a strong influence over world affairs. The Apostle Paul often made reference to these rulers of the darkness in heavenly places. He believed that they were the real power behind the despotic governments that constitute the world system.
But for the most part, Christians of the contemporary era tend to relegate these spiritual powers to an otherworldly background role. Though most Bible-believing Christians will admit the existence of angels – either in God’s service or in Satan’s – they stop there. In the ancient world, angels were readily recognized as interacting with human beings on a daily level.
Modern man places them closer to the level of superstition. That is, the possibility of an angelic presence is acknowledged, but the actuality of it is denied.
In fact, the dark spiritual forces of this world play a major role in the development and direction of human governments. Since 1947/48, marking the birth of modern Israel, their influence has been characterized by increasing openness.
Many will be surprised to discover that they have literally forced their way into the halls of government. In the United States, their presence has formed a hidden – and unconstitutional – establishment. It is variously known as “Majestic-12,” “Majic,” or a secret branch of the National Security Agency. For decades, this group has headed what President Dwight D. Eisenhower called, “the military-industrial complex.”
In his parting speech as president, he sounded a warning that this secret group was growing dangerously powerful. At the time, no one could have known what he meant. Today, however, important information has been brought to light. The truly evil outcomes implicit in his warning are now becoming quite clear. Almost unbelievably, they can be traced back to an operation called, Project “JEHOVAH.”
To be given the Lord’s Old Testament name in the years following World War II, this secret government operation must have been regarded as supreme…even transcendental. Eisenhower, himself, was a devout Christian, and knew the importance of that name. Without a doubt, this operation was regarded by government leaders as preternatural. In fact, it was that, and more. Dark and powerful forces had intruded into the inner workings of our constitutional republic.
Before we look further into this amazing event, let us recall the ancient days of the Old Testament. There, the presence of angels is seen as a normal phenomenon.
First, we see that the Lord’s angels fight on behalf of the faithful. This is beautifully illustrated in the account of Elisha and his servant. It as about 800 B.C., and the king of Syria made war against Israel. Through the prophet Elisha, the Lord gave instructions that directed the defense of Israel’s kingdom.
When the Syrian king heard of this phenomenon, he naturally wanted to rid himself of the pesky prophet. Upon learning that Elisha and his servant had gone to the city of Dothan, the foreign king’s troops followed him. During the night, they surrounded the city. Their goal was to capture and kill the prophet early the next morning.
At this point the biblical narrative takes up the story:
“And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! How shall we do?
“And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
“And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha” (II Kings 6:15-17).
This historical account illustrates that angels do, indeed, assert themselves into the affairs of men. Perhaps it is not stretching matters to say that they direct the events of history.
The Syrian army, with its horses and chariots, had besieged the little city of Dothan. In human terms, Elisha and his servant were trapped…doomed. The Lord had used them to tip the balance in favor of Israel. When the servant saw the army, he naturally interpreted events from the human perspective. In his eyes, the two were as good as dead.
Then Elisha entreated the Lord on behalf of his servant. In answer to his prayer, the dimensional barrier that lies between us and the spirit world was momentarily lifted. The servant then saw the actuality of the situation. Horses and chariots of fire were waiting to fight on behalf of Israel.
Two facts emerge here. One, angels can physically intercede in human battles. And two, they can take on the form that suits the culture and situation of the moment. Chariots of fire have been seen for millennia. They are regularly seen today. However, no one today sees them being pulled by horses. In the present cultural medium, such fiery chariots would be interpreted by twenty-first century eyes as “high-tech.” Perhaps they would look like rockets or saucers ringed by fire.
But the angels were there for one purpose, to make sure that Elisha was protected, and that Israel went undefeated. In this incident, they made sure that Israel survived, according to the will of God.
In another well-known biblical example of this sort, the angel of the Lord came to Daniel the prophet, in response to his three weeks of fasting and prayer. By the time the angel came, he was in a weakened state. But the angel told him that his trip had taken three weeks, because he had been resisted by a dark, angelic opposition force:
“Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
“But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
“Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days” (Daniel 10:12-14).
Here, the dark angel has a title: the “Prince of Persia.” No doubt, his function at the time was to act on behalf of the despotic human regimes that controlled Persia. How this evil being interacted with his human counterparts is unknown. But the angel who spoke with Daniel brought a prophetic message. And as he departed, he mentioned yet another dark power:
“Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? And now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.
“But I will show thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince” (Daniel 10:20, 21).
Here, Michael, the archangel is mentioned as an opponent of two dark angelic forces, the princes of Persia and Greece. In Daniel’s day, Persia was at its apex of prominence. After that, Greece came to power. Still later, Rome rose to its era of world dominance. Today, the influence of Rome is still felt, as the Western Alliance carries the historical weight of the Holy Roman Empire into the twenty-first century.
Daniel’s prophecy states that Rome, as the fourth world power, will experience a reawakening in the latter days. At that time, humanity will be weakened by the forcible corruption of the race. Before the flood, the dark forces physically manifested themselves to the human race, taking wives and producing an unclean race of sinful half-humans.
In the last days, the Bible predicts that the same, identical phenomenon will once again manifest itself. Rome, the iron empire, will degenerate into iron and clay:
“And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay” (Daniel 2:43).
Here, as we have noted in other studies, “they” are outsides…alien intruders. As they did before the Flood, they will attempt to corrupt the human race, producing hybrids to do their bidding. Furthermore, their leader, Satan, knows that if humanity could be successfully infiltrated by an alien genome, the Lord’s redemptive process could be short-circuited. But as the prophecy clearly states, their efforts will not succeed.
All such activities are moving toward a state of open warfare in heaven. Today, Satan and his followers have access to heaven. They are free to intercede in our affairs, hatching their evil plans and conspiracies. They operate in semi-secrecy, masking themselves in forms that will be readily acceptable to the culture of the moment. Today, they appear as aliens coming from one star system or another. Actually, they are able to appear for a time, then retreat behind the cover of the heavenly dimension.
As counterfeit “space aliens,” they pretend to bring peace and the solutions to man’s problems. In fact, they pretend to be here to save man from himself, as he pollutes his environment, and threatens to annihilate himself with the nuclear poison of a world war. In the future, their cover will be removed. As given in the book of Revelation, Michael will defeat the dark powers, once and for all banishing them from the kingdom of heaven.
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
“And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:7-9).
This event will mark a great change in the affairs of the world. No longer will fallen angels and demons be able to circulate behind the scenes in the world’s chambers of power. They will be cast to earth, and judged. In the parlance of the spymasters, their cover will be blown. But what a horrendous phenomenon for humans who are alive in that day!
The point is this: Today, the dark powers of this world are free to wield their influence in a torrent of lies and deceptions. They really exist, and they really have the power to shape and control human governments. They are as real and as palpable as human beings, but have the momentary advantage of being able to disappear, when it is in their favor to do so. On this point, Paul’s statement is the clearest statement in the Bible:
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:11, 12).
The phenomena of the occult stretch across a broad spectrum of observable events. These “principalities” (archons) are directly answerable to Satan. They are the evil equivalent of archangels. Their “powers,” (delegated authorities) are the lesser angels – demons and the like – who rule the darkness. They operate at night and in the darkness, but their spiritual wickedness penetrates into the “high places” – the vaults of power, both in the heavens and on Earth.
One has only to think of Hitler’s well-known vision of the “superman,” to fully visualize this phenomenon. He told the story that once, while alone in his office, he was visited by the spirit of the ideal man. Its power was such that he both respected and feared it. But he saw it as the ultimate reason for the Third Reich, which would, he thought, bring a utopian kingdom to planet Earth. Actually, he was guided by demons.
The occult power behind his throne was called “The Society of the Golden Dawn.” Hitler and his followers felt that they were being led into a new science and technology by divine theosophical powers.
Here, it must be noted that the Nazis’ power rose upon the ashes of Israel’s Twelve Tribes. In a moment of history, the throne of Hitler was raised up against the throne of David.
That moment came to a dramatic conclusion in the year 1947/48, with the birth of Israel. It can be argued that this moment was the central idea of the twentieth century. Everything changed when Israel became a nation on May 14, 1948.
Shaping the U.S. Government
Hitler was gone, but the satanic conspiracy behind it was alive and well. The United States had defeated Germany in two wars. Some had called Hitler the Antichrist. Certainly, he was a type of the evil man. But the real Antichrist would be poured from the crucible of a demonic conspiracy yet to come.
In this country, the roots of this plot go back to that critical year 1947. In that year, the events of Roswell, New Mexico, and the UFO crashes there, changed the shape of our government. From the biblical perspective, it must be remembered that the central work of the fallen angels is to mold human governments into the form that is most useful to them.
Taking a retrospective view of this change, one must ask about the approach that would be taken by Satan, if he wished to infiltrate a representative democracy such as ours. Though corrupt in many ways, America was (and is) a nation pervaded and strongly influenced by the Christian ethos. How then would the dark powers take control of a government of, by, and for the people?
Science As Religion
In simple terms, they would create a crisis. Then they would create a branch of government not directly answerable to the people. And this, they did, taking advantage of man’s current belief system. Since the industrial revolution, the Achilles’ heel of the Western powers has been its belief in science and technology. Before that, religion and a host of superstitions controlled society’s perceptions.
For example, in the Middle Ages, the physical, chemical and biological sciences all fell under forms of spiritual interpretation, either secular or sacred. In the former case, alchemists and conjurers were the authorities; in the latter, religious powers decided the course of a matter. In either case, religious or pseudo-religious philosophy made up the mind of society. Angels were angels and demons were demons.
By the mid-19th century, “science” began to reign, progressively replacing religious authority as a guide to popular belief. Steam, gasoline, electricity, gunpowder and dynamite shaped the accelerating growth of Western society. Then came modern chemistry and physics, with the mathematics of relativity and nuclear power. Men in white lab coats became the modern priesthood. Angels and demons were now thought to be quaint anachronisms.
Under the thinking of this new “modernism,” any creatures who popped in from elsewhere were explained in the light of science, not the spirit. Thus, in the great “airship flap” of 1897, the many sightings of strange ships and odd creatures were either attributed to human scientific experimentation or visits from citizens of the moon or Mars. In the former ages, they would have instantly been branded as demons.
That, by the way, was the year of the first World Zionist Congress. The next great wave of sightings came fifty years later, in 1947, as events were shaping modern Israel.
Among those who document the historical occurrences of unidentified aerial phenomena, a curious relationship has been observed. Crucial events in the life of Israel seem somehow tied to the public appearance of “extraterrestrial phenomena.” Having investigated this premise on several levels, there is a great deal of evidence for its veracity.
Israel’s wars of 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973, were all accompanied by mass appearances of unidentified aerial events. From the modern “scientific” perspective, this makes no sense at all. But when we take the biblical, spiritual view of a war in the heavens, there is a perfect fit.
The war between Michael and his angels, as they battle the great dragon and his angels, seems somehow to “bleed over” into this dimension during critical moments. When earthly battles reach fever pitch on the surface of this planet, they seem to be accompanied by similar crests of activity on the heavenly plane.
But more importantly, for the purposes of this discussion, these occasional physical intrusions into our world are intentionally used to produce an illusion that will play into the human lust for power.
Such was the case in 1947. Bit by bit, the truth about Roswell and its “crashed saucers” is emerging. Over the past fifty-five years, the tight ring of secrecy around the matter has steadily broken down. Military men on their deathbeds have confessed to their families that things really happened. Hundreds of secret documents have been leaked. More than one crash site was reported.
There were strange craft and “alien bodies” that were taken to secret sites around the country. Studies were undertaken to understand how humanity would be affected, should the secret ever be revealed. Many of the intelligentsia decided that society couldn’t take the news without suffering some sort of collapse. At the highest levels of government, the decision was made to classify any and every event that pertained to the “extraterrestrial” question. And thus it remains to this day. Documents from the 1950s reveal that officials regarded these secrets as more delicate than the famed “Manhattan Project,” that had developed the atomic bomb.
At that moment, a major death knell was sounded for representative government as it had been known in America since the days of the founding fathers. The top-secret National Security Agency and its many branches were given carte blanche authorization to function autonomously.
At first, they reported to the executive branch – directly to President Harry S. Truman. Later, during the Eisenhower administration, their duties were “farmed out” and compartmentalized, so that only the extreme “need to know” would enable one to gain access to their ongoing research.
The result was a government whose leadership became ensnared in a scheme that would lead them progressively into a pit of spiritual darkness. Byzantine secrecy would soon characterize the inner circles of U.S. military and industrial planning.
During the last decade, many researchers have documented these developments. Leading the way is an aerospace engineer, named Dr. Robert Wood. He has painstakingly cataloged, documented and published many of the documents of the era. They are called the “Majestic-12 Documents.” This, of course, refers to the above-top-secret group assigned to deal with the apparent crash of extraterrestrial vehicles.
Among them one finds a July 16, 1947, letter signed by U.S. Army/Air Force Headquarters, Commanding General Nathan Twining. It refers to an “Incident Report on Flying Discs,” and mentions “Proving Grounds in New Mexico.” This date follows the famous Roswell crash date of July 3, 1947, by only 13 days.
Another, carries the evocative title: “Code Word White Pebble Majcomsec Intelligence Eyes Only.” Beneath these words, on a line by itself, we see the words, Project “JEHOVAH.” Following that, are words that, if true, are truly epoch-making in their importance:
“Subject: National Security Agency code breaking of alien codex and historical research of the Central Intelligence Agency’s MJEBEN program and Department of Defense U.F.O. identification and detection ‘Project Firestone.’
“Prepared by MJ-12 group Technical Advisory Panel (MTAP-12)
“For Use By: Emergency Combat Communications (ECOMCOM)
“Completed On” October 2, 1962
“Approved By: Executive Committee (EXCOM) on October 24, 1962, 10:00 A.M., Meeting No. 3.”
All this sounds like so much science fiction. But there is great evidence that they are quite true. Imagine that an elite group decides that it is in the military’s favor to know and understand how to decode alien UFO communications. All the while, through various media outlets, they are vehemently scoffing at the reality of flying saucers, labeling them as “swamp gas” and optical illusions.
Then imagine that these brilliant men have given this task the very name of God in the Old Testament. Jehovah is the highest name of the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David and the prophets! It is as though these men believe that they are dealing with God, either personally, or through His representatives. This is blasphemy of the first order. To assign the name of God to the work of devils is the highest form of delusion. It leads to corruption, greed and lying on a mass scale.
Project “JEHOVAH” was already a long-standing undertaking by 1962. One of the documents referenced by Dr. Wood is a two-page letter written by Dwight D. Eisenhower. It is dated November 4, 1953. It recognizes the MJ-12 documents:
“I cannot overemphasize the need for the utmost discretion and understanding in exercising the authority set forth in these documents. Accordingly, I would like you to find some way to brief the various Authorizing Commanders on the subject to ensure that all are of one mind as to the letter and spirit of these instructions. Preferably, I would like to see this done in a closed meeting to be arranged through the Director of the National Security Agency, yourself, and representatives of the MJ-12/Special Studies Project. I specifically want Project JEHOVAH director Professor Albert Einstein and Doctor Robert Oppenheimer to inject any useful comments to the briefing as they are most informed on the physics related to the subject. Perhaps the annual Quantico conference could provide an opportunity to do this without the publicity which would call attention to a special meeting.
Dwight D. Eisenhower”
It is astonishing to realize that while publicly ridiculing the idea of extraterrestrial contact, our leaders were secretly devoting huge amounts of money and brain power to the problem. Ostensibly, they were trying to “protect” the citizenry from the shock of learning that we are not alone.
In fact, they had been duped by creatures that any other age would have been rejected as dark powers…demons who had materialized in our world.
The name of the Project … ”JEHOVAH” … tells us that the brilliant men who struggled to understand the windfall from a New Mexico desert ascribed godlike properties to it. The theoretical mathematics and physics, understood only by men like Einstein and Oppenheimer, were called upon to decipher a new physics. What records that have been gleaned from their operations tell us that they failed to make sense of what they found.
Ironically, they were the ones who had unlocked the power of the atom. Now, they struggled in vain to make sense of a strange alien intelligence.
The MJ-12 documents show that they studied the wreckage for signs of German or Russian language traces. They found none. They found a compartment on one craft, thought by Dr. Oppenheimer to be an “atomic engine.”
They discovered – and described – flexible glass cables wrapped in a woven sheath, thin sheets imprinted in pure silver, with thousands of microscopic connections. These, we now know to be fiber optics and printed circuits.
They saw bladeless turbines, power that seemed to flow endlessly, structures that seemed to be molded, rather than welded, and perfectly formed components without welded joints, fasteners or soldered joints.
Along with our leading scientists, the Majestic Twelve Project included a wide list of the top men in the Truman administration, including Dr. Vannevar Bush, who chaired a panel that included men like General J. Lawton Collins, Deputy Chief of Staff, United States Army, and General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, Vice Chief of Staff, United States Air Force.
Other scientists were also included. In addition to Einstein and Oppenheimer, the panel featured Jerome C. Hunsaker, MIT, National Academy of Sciences, Dr. Hugh L. Dryden, Director of Aeronautical Research, NACA, and Dr. James H. Doolittle, then associated with Shell Oil Corporation.
All these names – and more – appeared on a 1948 report called, “A Review of the President’s Special Panel to Investigate the Capture of Unidentified Planform Space Vehicles by U.S. Armed Forces and Agencies.”
It was reported that, in addition to a phenomenal inventory of undecipherable hardware, the government had collected a number of tiny bodies at the crash sites. They were said to be the size of children, with large heads and huge eyes. One of them was even said to have been kept alive for a time. Reports say that it communicated by thoughts, rather than speech. The details of these accounts are perhaps less important than the fact of their sudden appearance in our world.
Where had they come from? To this day, say the experts, this question is unanswered. Some say that they are “Pleideians,” or “Zeta Reticulans,” named after star systems visible to our astronomers.
More likely – and biblically – they are from right here on planet Earth. They are none other than followers of “…the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2). Over the millennia, the air, or atmosphere, has witnessed tens of thousands of curious comings and goings. Soldiers of Alexander the Great reported huge “flying shields” over their armies. Servants of the pharaohs reported exactly the same thing. Medieval monks saw flying vehicles, and remembered scriptural accounts of fiery flying chariots.
The important thing to remember is that our country has not been visited by benevolent messengers from the stars. They have not come to save our planet from nuclear radiation or air pollution. Rather, they have come to subvert and undermine the spiritual basis of our governmental system. Paul was right.
In a way, it is as though we – the United States – have made a deal with the devil. In exchange for the wealth that could be gained through advanced technology, our leaders created a so-called “black-ops” system of undercover activity. Some authorities, like Dr. David Jacobs of Temple University, say that our leaders have, in effect, been bribed to look the other way, allowing dimensional interlopers to abduct and experiment upon human subjects.
Their object is to create a human/alien hybrid…one who can survive in this physical dimension for extended periods of time. Such creatures would be literal spies in the service of the dark world mentioned by the Apostle Paul. Walking undetected among humans, they could confabulate incalculable evil in our society.
Other experts, like Colonel Philip J. Corso, in his amazing memoir called, The Day After Roswell, say that American industry was allowed to reap the benefits of the windfall for pure profit. He maintains that he oversaw the “seeding” of alien technology to the leaders of industry. He provides persuasive evidence that integrated circuit chips (microchips), fiber optics, lasers and super-strength fibers all came as a result of reverse engineering.
That is, bits and pieces of the new technology were studied and duplicated. One of the devices that was discovered aboard the downed discs was the laser. It took a while, but scientists found out how it worked, and now, it is a staple of our science and technology.
In everything from construction to space travel, it is indispensable. From this device alone, profits in the billions of dollars have been realized.
Where could our government have gotten the idea that their newly-acquired alien technology came from Jehovah? Could it have been from the first chapter of Ezekiel, in which the prophet saw a whirling fiery chariot that came and landed before him?
Its wheels within wheels and crystal dome “firmament,” stretching over the head of one who sat on a throne is highly suggestive of technology beyond man’s wildest dreams.
“And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.
“And then I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.
“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” (Ezekiel 1:26-28).
The “LORD” mentioned here is none other than Jehovah, Himself. The glorified Man before Ezekiel is none other than the preincarnate Christ.
Those who would imitate Him ply the airways by night as rulers of the darkness. Increasingly, they are capable of materializing on this plane, where they present themselves as “christs,” avatars, or astronauts of various kinds.
But their real purpose is to capture the hearts, souls and minds of ordinary mortals. Then, they are free to shape the course of governments and human history.
Even worse, they inject uncleanness into our society. Inter-species traffic is now more than just a science fiction movie. It is a nightmarish fact.
We should never forget one thing. The Lord told us that the genetic corruption that plagued earth in the days of Noah would come once again, just before His return:
“And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man” (Luke 17:26).
The famed military-industrial complex is far more than a financial power group. More accurately, it should be called, “The Military-Industrial-Mystical-Occult Complex.”
Roswell changed our world. The question is, how many other “Roswells” are there? Reverse engineering has produced many modern miracles, but it was really a Trojan horse. In these days, when science is seeking to penetrate the interdimensional veil, it is becoming openly apparent how those “principalities and powers” really rule human governments.
