The Bible Files

UFOs in the Bible

This article provided the basis for the first chapter the first EARS book.

Of all the paranormal topics in the Bible, the existence of UFOs seem to almost be a no-brainer. What? Did I really just say that out loud? Many, many people gasp in disbelief when they hear this, and I think I know part of the reason why. When people think of UFOs, it seems they almost always think of little green (or grey) men with big black eyes who reportedly abduct people at night and perform hideous experiments on them. When I see toys and other items in stores that portray "aliens" or "UFOs" they always seems to picture these same little aliens.

If that WAS all that was out there, I'd have to agree that these little guys don't seem too nice, and they certainly don't seem to be very Biblical. When I first started looking into the whole topic I thought it was very refreshing to find that UFO researchers who are really into this type of stuff generally feel that this type of alien is actually only a small part of the extraterrestrial population. They usually refer to this particular group of aliens as the "greys."

So why do these greys get all the publicity? If you think about it, it's really not such a strange concept. Think about other things you see in our society. How many brand names of soda are there in the average grocery store? Probably dozens with many different flavors, but if you just believed what you see on TV, you might think that Coke and Pepsi were the only two soft drinks made. It's kind of the same thing with UFOs and aliens: you could say that the greys just seem to spend more money on advertising.

If there really are other aliens, you might be wondering why these groups don't "advertise" too. Why are the greys the only ones pictured in all the comic books and TV shows and shown on all the merchandise? Maybe the question we should be asking is "Where do we go to get the other side of the story?" Since this probably isn't the first article you've read on this web site you won't be surprised that I wanted to see what the Bible says about the topic.

I think that if you just look at what's actually in the Bible with an open mind, you can find dozens of UFO accounts. The nice thing about doing this is that it can help you see that there is a positive alternative to the "grey" abducting type aliens. People often ask if the aliens are angels or demons as if they can only be one or the other. Isn't it entirely possible - and actually more likely - that they aren't all exactly the same and that some are good and some are bad? Fortunately, all of the Biblical UFOs seem to be working for the good guys.

Now I want to be perfectly clear that I'm not trying to take anything away from the power of God. I'm not saying that God needs UFOs to perform miracles for him. But I do think that life exists outside our planet, and I think that God gives these beings the free will choice and opportunity to work with him the same way he gives us the choice to do positive things in our everyday lives.

I think the activities of these "good" aliens are actually similar to those of missionaries that many churches send overseas. They make contact in an honest effort to help people get a more accurate picture of God. If this is the case, is it really so far-fetched to believe that these off-planet missionaries often use UFOs as tools to perform certain tasks?

Since there are so many possible UFO accounts documented in the Bible, I'll be dividing the topic into a number of issues that I've called "The Bible Files."

Issue One:
Ezekiel's Wheel

Issue Two:
Following A Cloud To Canaan

Issue Three:
UFOs In The Life Of Christ

Issue Four:
The New Jerusalem
