Things They Didn’t Teach You in Church: Chariots of God

Every day we seem to have a new story in the news concerning aliens, UFOs, or space travel. In the first chapter of Ezekiel verse 4, we are shown a vehicle, containing the throne of God, that comes out of a whirlwind and is the colour of amber, which in Hebrew means highly polished bronze. As you continue to read, a landing gear is described, as well as portholes, and we are told there are living souls inside the craft. Remember, Ezekiel who is describing this, had never seen any mode of transportation other than a donkey pulling a cart. The wheels that Ezekiel sees are also mentioned in other places in the Bible, they are sometimes called the Chariots of God. (Psalms 68:17)

Outer Space, UFOs and space travel has become so important that the U.S. now has a division of the armed forces called the Space Force. The debate about unknown objects seen in the sky has exploded in recent years and much of the conversation centers around who is in them and if they are “good guys” or “bad guys.” If you accept the Biblical fact that these vehicles, which do not follow the laws of physics, are actually from that dimension we call Heaven, you will also realize who is in them. They can’t be the “bad guys” because they are locked away in Heaven awaiting judgment: Jude 1:6.

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

My best guess is that they are the “good guys” watching over humanity; making sure we don’t blow ourselves up before Jesus returns. This brings me to my story and the UFO pictures I want to share with you.

It was 1974 and I was working on my master’s degree at CSULB. I had an apartment in Signal Hill, CA and was teaching Adult Ed and Communication classes for several different community college districts in the area, and I was running a student teacher speech proficiency program at CSULB. Tom lived in the apartment below mine and we became acquainted and had gone out “clubbing” a few times after work. One day Tom came to me and said, “I have a story to tell you and a favor to ask.” As I listened, he told me that his sister, who attend college in New Mexico, and her boyfriend were out on a picnic and saw an amazing sight. The boyfriend grabbed his camera and began taking pictures as he moved towards the object. Tom said that when they got home the boyfriend called the local T.V. station who interviewed him and put him and his pictures on local television. He became a local celebrity and experienced his 15 minutes of fame. It was then that strange events began to happen.

Tom told me that his sister and her boyfriend began to feel like they were being followed and they began to see strange things in their apartment. Things were moved while they were gone, and doors were closed that had been opened and doors and cupboards opened that had been closed. After moving and several precautions were taken, the strange events continued, and they could only imagine it had to do with the pictures and negatives of the object in the New Mexico sky. It was then that Tom got the phone call from his sister asking if he would take possession of the photos and negatives for safe keeping.

Tom said he had the photos for quite a while before the strange events began happening to him, just like his sister and her boyfriend, he felt like someone was following him and then things in his apartment seemed to be moved around while he was gone. Then something happened that convinced him something weird was happening. He wanted me to hold on to the pictures and negatives for a while; I said OK. I had the pictures for several months and I didn’t see Tom much, then one day I came home from work and as I pulled into my parking space I immediately noticed something was different with Tom’s apartment just below mine. There were no drapes and when I looked in the window, I saw the entire apartment was empty, Tom was gone. A neighbor told me that early that day a truck with a trailer pulled in and the driver and Tom loaded all his belongings on the trailer. Tom told the neighbor he was moving to Oregon and drove away in the truck. I never heard from Tom again.

Left with the pictures and negatives I began to do some research on them. Remember, this was the early 70’s long before the internet or photoshop or anything like that existed. Working at CSULB I knew some professors there and decided to get a couple of professional opinions. I first went to a photography professor and asked if he could produce the type of images in these pictures. He said “Yes, but it won’t be cheap.” He knew some people in Hollywood that could produce something similar, he estimated that it might cost several thousand dollars per picture. I then took them to a math professor who said he couldn’t detect anything in the distances or shadows or size that might make them fakes. I didn’t think these two students from New Mexico could afford to make fake pictures, but I wanted to know more about the boyfriend to make sure.

It turns out that one of the pictures had appeared in the Time Life series MYSTERIES OF THE UNKNOWN in the volume The UFO Phenomenon. According to it, the boyfriend’s name was Paul Villa, and he was a mechanic from Albuquerque, New Mexico. About a year after these pictures were taken, it seems Paul contacted the T.V. station again and reported he had been abducted by aliens and had some new pictures. The new pictures were described as looking like four or five trucks parked up on a hill at night with their headlights on. Paul Villa was labeled a kook and the pictures deemed laughable. They threw the baby out with the bathwater, calling the first set of pictures fake too. You can be the judge. 

Revelation 12 says the fallen angels are coming back at the end of the Last Generation and I guarantee you they will be in vehicles like nothing we have here on earth. Revelation 12:9.

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.
