Raoul’s Two Cents: September 8, 2023

Seen Any UFOs Lately?

Ever since I started studying AI, my research has veered me to the direction of UFOs. I believe they exist. Okay, you can move on to the joke section now. Raoul’s out of his mind. Go ahead. Just go. Go, go go!

Still here? Curious? Let me expound on this. Many former Top Secret evidence is finally released to the public and old ones are given their stamp of authenticity. Here are some observations and questions. See if you agree with me.

  • Censorship and fake news has been going on for years. Our past Presidents must have known about it but (love him or hate him) it was Trump who made the official announcement. ie. Authorities decided long ago to filter out what the public can or cannot know. Why the secrecy? To prevent a panic? To let our enemies think we have the technology? Because we will lose hope? (I think they know who really killed JFK, Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy. I think they’re still trying to protect some people.) I think we should be open to new ideas about ETs while still questioning and using our common sense. After all, the truth should set us free.
  • Aliens have lived among us for decades, maybe centuries, maybe since forever. They must value humankind because, even with their advanced technology, they haven’t eliminated us yet. Are they here to protect us from ourselves? Are we a big experiment? Are they as curious of us as we are of them?
  • Are they confined to time? Do they function within our 24 hour time frame? Does time also move forward for them? Can they slow it down? I see no solid evidence of time travel.
  • It’s possible there are different races/species of them because there have been different recorded UFO shapes and sizes. They must be getting along fine because there has not been any record of them battling it out in the open … unless of course their battles are in a different dimension. I believe the latter.
  • We can create rules and hierarchical systems for human society but these rules do not apply to them. Even the power-hungry world leaders and billionaires are subservient to them. Hey, you one percenters! You may choose to ignore they exist and you may be the boss of me but you ain’t the boss of them!
  • Why do they still need to ride a vehicle to move about (and apparently they come in different sizes and models)? Can’t they call Scottie to teleport them? Our understanding of physics is primitive compared to theirs but they are still confined to the physics that God established in the universe.
  • I wouldn’t be surprised if these aliens can control the weather. China, you can fly as many balloons as you want but you’ll never come close to their technology.
  • They make mistakes too. They aren’t perfect. There have been crash sightings other than in the famous Roswell and Aurora.
  • They may not be from outer space but from hidden earth. Notice how they appear often in less populated areas like deserts, frozen terrain and ocean deeps? Do they live in houses? After a long day, do the alien husbands hang their space helmets and announce “Honey, I’m home!”

Oh, the many things to speculate about these mysterious strangers.

CHALLENGED FAITH

How does this realization of technologically advanced other-worldly creatures affect my faith? Let’s start with the big question: Is God an alien? No. God created something when there was nothing … not even aliens. Aliens are part of His creation. Does the existence of aliens contradict the validity of the Bible? Of course not! Nothing in the Bible says they do not exist. On the contrary, in the 1st Chapter of Ezekiel, the prophet describes something that can very well be a UFO. Even the star that the wise men followed could have been a UFO.

Could they be angels or demons? Yup! I believe so. Regardless who they are, God is above all of this. He is in control of them just as He is in control of us.

Humans have always worshiped unexplainable, unattainable beings and even inanimate objects … yup! weirdos still worship quirky toasted bread for goodness sake! Even Biblical characters like Mary and John have tried to worship angels and they were told not to because they too were just created beings … they weren’t god. (How can you tell the good angel from the bad angel/demon? The demon asks you to worship him.)

Just because we don’t understand doesn’t make them gods so let’s not return to the practice of human sacrifices to appease these guys — it’s a waste of life and I doubt they crave human meat anyway. Remember: The blood sacrifice you save today may be the Elon Musk of tomorrow!

CONCLUSION

I have been concerned about the evil that has engulfed the world today. Corruption, idiotic lies, perversion and insane judicial proceedings. I was fearful of China’s dominance in the world and the weak free nations bowing to its whims. But the recent floods that swept whole towns incapacitating China slapped me into the reality that, clever though they may be, China is no match to nature. God gave Ezekiel that angelic vision to remind him that the Babylonian kingdom was powerless against the creator of the universe. To me, these UFOs are a reminder not to lose hope because these powerful evil men are mere pawns in God’s overall plan.

The bottom line is we are not alone. Death still has its consequences. The unfulfilled prophecies in Revelation are still on schedule. What do you think? I think it’s time for the jokes now.

Of course this is just me. TGIF People!

I am discounting reports of UFOs. Why would they appear only to cranks and weirdos?”

    Old Buddy,

    It is easy to listen to the world since there are so many voices. Everyone has seen something they don’t understand but that doesn’t make them a higher intelligent alien being. Concerning UFOs that is about all some people talk about today so they must be true, right? Do they conflict with the Bible?

    Here are some basic Biblical; issues involved from one old buddy’s thinking.:

    1. The heavens are the heavens of the LORD, But the earth He has given to the sons of men. Psalm. 115:16.
    2. Genesis 1:1 indicates that everything has been created by God including anything in the universe. Only man has been made in God’s image, fearfully and wonderfully made. We alone have minds, free will, and the capacity to know God (we have a spirit, unlike any other part of creation, we are the crown of creation.
    3. The creator Himself did a one-time, non-repeatable act. He was incarnated, became flesh, died on a cross for our sins, rose again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father, in his resurrected body which he will now have forever, which included the scars, the human race put on HIm. That according to Scripture can never be done again, it was once for all and it was for us.
    4. There may be created life in places other than here but it has never been found but we can be certain that it is not made in God’s image and Jesus never went there and died. Any life that might exist could not have reason and free will or it could sin like we did and there would be no hope other than it would be selfish and destroy itself.
    5. Ezekiel saw a vision of God in judgment, He was sending a great judgment on His people Israel. He pictured Himself as a Judge sitting on a throne, coming in a storm cloud from the North. The entire book of Ezekiel is about the Babylonian captivity that came upon Jerusalem from the North, the way all Eastern Kingdoms had to come into Jerusalem, no way from the East. God is riding on a carpet of Cherubim, the highest angels and the guardians of His throne. The sky is flashing in anger and judgment against his sinful people and 70 years of captivity is the punishment along with the destruction of the Temple. Ezekiel’s vision of God is certainly otherworldly but has nothing to do with Aliens from someplace in space.
    6. As you hinted in your article, Satan and his demons have power and will especially deceive in the latter days. Satan is the prince not the King, of this earth and the atmospheric heavens above us. His assigned place is Earth, not other places in the galaxy. The spiritual war zone is here not elsewhere. He can cause signs in the heavens above, storms like in Job, and physical miracles like in Moses’ day. The serpents of the magicians were real. In the end times, there will be signs in the heavens.
    7. There is more but that is some of why I don’t believe in advanced civilizations on other planets that have come here, keeping themselves hidden, and for what purpose? Did they come across the universe to carve the stone heads on Easter Island as some believe? Why? Did they come to help or teach us? What was it,? Haven’t heard anything yet?
    8. Is time travel possible? No. If at any time in the future, someone invented it, we would know because they would have come back here. It is appointed to man once to die and then the judgment. We can’t go back and fix our sins. Jesus took care of that.

    Just a few quick thoughts Old Buddy. Love you man Buddy 2

      A thought provoking topic indeed. Very interesting comments.

      True — what is the purpose in these strange archeological artifacts in Easter Island? I think they were ordered by some power-hungry ruler who employed artisans to enslave the fascinated peasants … it couldn’t have originated from any believer.

      True – we are uniquely made in God’s image and Christ died for humans alone. We are the spoiled rotten ungrateful undeserving loved ones. What amazing grace and love from our savior, Jesus Christ!

      True – Ezekiel’s weird account should have been eliminated from the final scriptures but it’s there to puzzle mankind.

      True – the focus is here on earth. Although I have seen reports of unnatural structures and movement beyond our planet. The jury’s still out on that one. But ultimately, I believe outer space is there to show God’s awesomeness. Notice how the James Webb telescope has disproven these astronomical theories yet again.

      Soon … In a blink of an eye … we will spend eternity sharing and laughing at our speculations about all these things with clear lenses.

      Please pray for the nonbelievers who read this to realize the existence of our loving father who cannot be explained or accepted by the so-called intelligent scientists and theologians out there. One of my purpose writing the article was to thwart any notion early on that God is just one of the aliens.

      TGIF Buddy 2.

        Amen and amen. There are a lot of views on everything today. A nice old lady at a church we attended in California once asked me if I thought there was a pre Adamic race. I asked why she was asking and she said she was certain that an advanced race on the earth existed before Adam and they had toasters. I said “Toasters! “ she said , Yes, Toasters. I told her I had something to do and l did, I needed to run away as quickly as possible. Later I reminded myself that I was in California!

    I enjoy watching Ancient Aliens very much. To have similar art that tells a story thousands of miles away from other cultures is amazing. And as far as religion went in relationship to early man, when men started reasoning I think they needed someone to thank for everything good that happened to them in their life and times.

    Hi Raoul,

    I am not a UFO denier and some 40 years ago some theologians were addressing the issue. It may be interesting to you that they concluded the myriads of angels (good and fallen) were involved in the sightings. Did Christ die for them? That question was also addressed and concluded that he only died for human beings who reside on this planet. I have no idea what is true in regard to the UFOs, but it is clear that a lot of cover-up and hiding of information about them has been going on a long time. The recent discussions and the showing of many filming of such sightings is intriguing and I hope more clarity will be forth coming.

    Blessings!

      UFOs are a fascinating topic indeed. I felt I needed to address this for
      the sake of the nonbelievers out there. I felt it necessary to thwart
      any notion that God is just one of them and yet give them hope that He
      is still in control of the madness.

    Good morning Raoul. TGIF! I can’t believe in UFOs or aliens. God never mentiones that in the Gospel. but fake aliens have always been the plan of the government to explain the rapture.

    Sooo, I was thinking (watch out), if people believe in Hell and/or Heaven, why don’t they believe in God ?

    Just a thought.

      True. Why pick and choose what you want to believe. When it comes to
      faith, I have learned that it isn’t a brilliance of logic that saves but
      a nudge from the Holy Spirit. Ever since I’ve accepted that fact I’ve
      had less guilt feelings about not saying enough or choosing the right
      words when witnessing. We plant the seeds. The Holy Spirit starts the
      growth.
