Dark Illusions Part 2: The Warning and the Threat

multihead alien2

This is not going to be easy.  There are many people who will consider what I’m going to write here nothing but fantasy. But there’s one thing upon which we can agree, either it is fantasy or it isn’t.  And if it isn’t fantasy, the implications are very dire.  All I can say is that what you will read next comes from many years of study and thought. But first…

I have done a considerable number of very stupid things in my life.

I’m going to tell you about what was arguably one of the stupidest of them all.  I arrived in Viet Nam in November of 1967 and was assigned to a frontline infantry battalion of the Ninth Division.  I was 21 years old, almost 22.  My first assignment in the battalion was not as a rifle platoon leader for which I had been trained.  I was assistant S4.  That was the department responsible for resupply.  Whatever the battalion needed from food to ammunition came through us and we distributed it out to the rifle companies that were on combat operations in the field. For me, this was actually enjoyable.  A company in the field would request resupply, we would get it together, load it onto a helicopter and I would fly with it to make the delivery. We would land in a perimeter and while the resupply was being offloaded I would wander around and talk to the officers of the unit who were all my friends. Then, I would board the chopper and fly back to our base camp. For a young infantry second lieutenant in a war zone, it doesn’t get much cushier than that.

This went on for weeks.  What was best about it? From the time I had landed in Viet Nam all through this period, I didn’t hear a shot fired in anger.  None of our rifle companies were having any contact with the enemy.  I looked forward to my little helicopter trips.  Viet Nam was actually pretty from 5000 feet. And it was cool up there, just a great ride.  I can’t remember exactly when the moment came, but at some point, a terrible idea entered my head.  Here I was flying in and out and things seemed perfectly safe.  The trips were short.   The question came to me, what was the point of carrying my M16 with all of that heavy ammunition?  It was just extraneous weight. So I started leaving it behind. This plan worked well until a particular day which I will never forget.

Just like all the other trips, we flew out to one of our rifle companies and landed.  While the resupply was being offloaded, I wandered over to talk to the CO.  Suddenly, we came under the crossfire from two automatic weapons hidden in a tree line.  The helicopter took off straight up into the air, leaving me on the ground, under fire, without even a butter knife to defend myself.  It is impossible to communicate what I felt at that moment.  That first experience of electrifying fear in combat? Yes.  But the fear was nothing compared to an overwhelming sense of idiocy.  Thankfully, I was surrounded by well-armed combat soldiers.  I could imagine that they were staring at me thinking, “Look at that second lieutenant ass.  He doesn’t have a weapon.” The contact was brief.  After firing a few rounds, the enemy faded away. It could have gotten much worse.

The first time a U.S. infantry soldier comes under enemy fire, he is awarded the Combat Infantryman’s Badge.  So that is how I won mine, a laughable “combat infantryman” totally unprepared for combat. Needless to say, I never made that mistake again. Why had we not had any enemy contact for weeks? Were they being kind?  Had the war ended and we hadn’t been told? A month or so later, we found out why.  They were gathering forces and preparing for what became known as the Tet Offensive.

What had been wrong with me? I had been trained for war.  I knew what the dangers were, but somehow part of my mind had been put to sleep by what I had accepted as “normal”.  This is a good example of what is called The Normalcy Bias.  In spite of all evidence that great danger is imminent, we humans insist on clinging to the fantasy that everything will be all right, everything will go on as “normal”.  After all, haven’t things been just the way they are as long as we can remember?  Therefore, we are not ready when the worst overwhelms us.

Imagine something with me.

Imagine being born in a combat zone where a vicious war is going on, but the direct fighting is not visible. It is too high up in the stratosphere around the Earth to be seen, but if you could see it you would be terrified. The truth about it is highly classified and hidden from almost everyone, so like everyone else you just go on with your life totally ignorant about that awful reality. However, there are hideous results of that war that appear on earth and are very visible.  People are suffering and dying, but you can’t link the cause of the suffering and death to anything that you understand. (It’s like Agent Orange for Viet Nam veterans. We know it was used and that it can cause deadly physical results, but linking it directly to each case is impossible, so the VA just assumes that certain health issues in Viet Nam veterans and their children are caused by it. But they could just as easily say, we don’t see any causal linkage and that would be “reality”.)

While the suffering from the unseen war high above goes on and on, you and many others do what you can to help people, but you struggle to find a reason for the suffering. It becomes a philosophical and moral question.  You grow depressed and cynical because you can’t find any answers and resign yourself to thinking there aren’t any. It’s just the way life is.

Then one day, a whistleblower tells you that all of this is happening because we are living in a combat zone with a hellish war going on so high above us that we can’t see it.  All we see down here are the terrible results. Would you believe him?  Probably not, because when you looked up into the sky all you would see were the clouds and blue of a gorgeous day.  You would say, “That doesn’t make sense. With a war like that, something would appear.”  The whistleblower would reply, “Things do appear up there, but you have been misled about what they are.”  Very likely, the Normalcy Bias would kick in and you would think the whistleblower was a lunatic. You would just walk away and go on with your life.

I’m not afraid of being thought a lunatic, so I’m going to tell you that an unseen war is going on.

Why is there such terrible suffering and agony that has continued for so long?  Every one of us has been born in the middle of a hellish combat zone that encompasses the entire world.  From the moment of birth, we are in that war whether we want to be or not.  Most of it is unseen, but often the violence and horror spill over into the world around us. The war is between vast invisible forces. And I’m not using war as a metaphor.  I mean actual war.

The philosopher G. K. Chesterton is reported to have said on his deathbed, “The issue is now clear.  It is between Light and Darkness and everyone must choose a side.” In this war zone, you are choosing a side whether you want to or not, whether you believe in that war or not.

There’s something else that is vital to know.  The two great forces at war with each other are fighting over us.  One side wants to save us, the other to destroy us because in destroying us they bring suffering to God, the Creator, who loves us beyond anything we could imagine.  God is at war and He is fighting for us.  You may ask, “If He’s God, why doesn’t he just win it and get it over with?” I don’t know the answer to that except to say that I think it is all bound up in His desire that we have true freedom to choose how we are going to live and which side of the war we will be on. True freedom of choice means having the freedom to choose what is wrong and evil. You can’t have real freedom without that possibility. But God didn’t just stand back and watch.  He entered this war in the person of his Son, Jesus, the Messiah, and suffered with us in order to lead us to victory.

All through the Bible in different ways, we are told about this invisible war. One example is found in the Old Testament Book of Daniel. As far as knowing what’s going to happen in the future, this book is one of the most important in the entire Bible. Daniel was a Jewish exile serving in the King’s court in Babylon.  He had many disturbing experiences. This is one of them:

Daniel 10:1-18:  In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a message was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar. The message was true, but the appointed time was long, and he understood the message and had understanding of the vision. In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

Now on the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, that is, the Tigris, I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz! His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude.

And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision; but a great terror fell upon them so that they fled to hide themselves. Therefore I was left alone when I saw this great vision, and no strength remained in me; for my vigor was turned to frailty in me, and I retained no strength. Yet I heard the sound of his words; and while I heard the sound of his words I was in a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.

Suddenly, a hand touched me, which made me tremble on my knees and on the palms of my hands. And he said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” While he was speaking this word to me, I stood trembling.

Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.  Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.

When he had spoken such words to me, I turned my face toward the ground and became speechless. And suddenly, one having the likeness of the sons of men touched my lips; then I opened my mouth and spoke, saying to him who stood before me, “My lord, because of the vision my sorrows have overwhelmed me, and I have retained no strength.  For how can this servant of my lord talk with you, my lord? As for me, no strength remains in me now, nor is any breath left in me.”

Then again, the one having the likeness of a man touched me and strengthened me.  And he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!”

So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”

Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come. But I will tell you what is noted in the Scripture of Truth. (No one upholds me against these, except Michael your prince.)

You may say that’s just a story. It can’t be real. But is that true? The actual truth is that you have no idea whether it is “real” or not.  You choose to believe it is untrue simply because it is so far outside what you consider “normal”.  But there are strong reasons to believe that the Book of Daniel is true. We’ll talk about that in more detail, but at the moment let’s take a brief but serious look at this story.

A powerful being, an angelic messenger from God, was sent to Daniel.  But to get to him, he had to fight another powerful being who didn’t want him to complete his mission.  And this opposing force was strong enough to restrain him in combat for 21 days. The only way he made it through was because another powerful being on his side of the war came to help him. And when he left Daniel, he says that he will have to fight again to get home. But this time there will be more than one enemy to confront.

Clearly, these enemies were not human princes, but unseen rulers of great evil who had authority over nations. And they were vicious warriors. Do you think this is just fantasy? That brilliant rabbi Paul, who wrote so much of the New Testament, didn’t think so. As evil as the human rulers were in his time, and one of them was Nero, he understood who the real enemies were. In his Letter to the Ephesians chapter six, he says:  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

That is an invisible war.

We live in a cynical, burned out age when people believe in nothing but what they can see on a cell phone screen.  It is an age of greed and lust and slavery that are sold to us as freedom. Consequently, it is also an age of anger, fear, and hopelessness. It is life in a war zone where we hear almost nothing but lies and propaganda, where evil wolves, servants of unseen lords, lead vast hordes of human sheep to destruction.  The Bible tells us that though this invisible war has been going on for eons, it will not go on forever.  Don’t be fooled by the Normalcy Bias. An End is coming.

Jesus talked a lot about the End of Days and what it would be like just before He returned in power to defeat evil in every realm.  In Matthew chapter 24 He said this “For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

Very strange and troubling words.  According to Jesus, preceding His return, it will be as it was in the days of Noah, just before the Great Flood destroyed everything. During that time, total destruction came unexpectedly and Jesus says that worldwide destruction will come again. Also, as in Noah’s day, there will be marriage and giving in marriage. Why would He point to that?  Why didn’t He just say, “Things will be going on normally?”  Clearly, that’s part of what He meant, but what was “normal” in that time?  He focuses on the union of marriage.  What was happening about “marriage” that was unique in the days of Noah? The people He was speaking to were average, educated Jewish men of the first century. What did they understand about the time before the Great Flood?

First, they were very familiar with the Book of Genesis in the Torah. They knew what was written in Genesis chapter six that I quoted in Part One.  Let me give those words to you again:

Genesis 6:1-8: “Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.”

Also, the men who heard Jesus were very familiar with the Book of Enoch that I wrote about in Part One.  In it they would have read these words:

“And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages, and lo! the Watchers called me—Enoch the scribe—and said to me: “Enoch, you scribe of righteousness, go, declare to the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high Heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves wives: You have wrought great destruction on the earth…” (1 Enoch 10).

The men listening to Jesus would have understood that before the Great Flood, strange “marriages” were taking place all over the world.  In our day we would call it genetic manipulation.  The offspring of this manipulation, the combining of human genes with something that was not human, were giants called Nephilim, Fallen Ones.  The memory of them still lives in our mythologies. Until our day, many people would have felt that such crossbreeding of species was impossible.  But now hardly a month passes when news doesn’t reach us of such experimentation in scientific laboratories around the world.

So when Jesus spoke those words, they were filled with horrifying meaning.  Just before His return, that kind of genetic manipulation would be going on again.  Nonhuman genes would be combined with human genes to create a hybrid species. Could that be taking place today? Before we deal with that question, let’s look at another important prophecy regarding the Days of the End found in the Book of Daniel, chapter two.

King Nebuchadnezzar had a frightening dream.

In it he saw a gigantic statue and he wanted to know what it meant. He brought in Daniel, who gave him an accurate interpretation.  Here is what Daniel told him:

“You, O king, were watching; and behold a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

“This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king. You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold.  But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay.

And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.  Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”

Look at the description of that last kingdom, the one that comes just before an eternal Kingdom arrives on earth that destroys all the others.  There is something very unusual about that fourth kingdom. It is described as a mixture of iron and clay that doesn’t adhere well together.  Is this just different groups of people that don’t get along or nations that can’t maintain unity in a coalition?  That’s what some people believe.  But Daniel uses exceedingly strange words to describe this mixture. He says that “they will mingle with the seed of men.” 

All through the Bible the word “seed” refers to procreation and the children brought forth through intercourse. The use of the word “mingle” elsewhere in the Old Testament often refers to the mingling of genetic material through intercourse. Scholars of the ancient language have written that the words translated “they will mingle” mean that whoever “they” are, they will be doing something both to themselves and with human genetic material at the same time. However, as with trying to mix iron and clay, the results of this genetic manipulation will not work well.

If the genetic material of these beings is different from the “seed of men” that means they are non-human.  So this last kingdom just before God establishes His Eternal Kingdom on earth will be both strong and weak because it is based in part on the genetic mingling of something nonhuman with humans.   That takes us straight back to the prophecy of Jesus and what happened before the Great Flood.  Jesus is saying that what happened then will happen again and it will lead to the End of Days and His return in power. Could this “mingling” be happening now?

Strange things have been appearing in our skies for a very long time.

As I write, the U.S. Navy has just acknowledged that three videos of unidentified flying objects are real. What they are and their origins are unknown.  “The Navy considers the phenomena contained/depicted in those three videos as unidentified,” stated Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher. That is a first as far as an official announcement is concerned in the United States, but it comes after many years of qualified observers, including military and civilian pilots, reporting such phenomena.  Unexplained phenomena are being seen in skies around the world.  The vast majority go unreported because people don’t want to be mocked. But we are at the point where anyone who mocks such experiences is a fool.  The decades-long propaganda machine that has tried to hide the truth about all of this is crumbling.

Personally, I have been studying these phenomena for over 30 years and have developed a library of information. Overall these years, I have become increasingly alarmed, both by the phenomena and the reactions of people to it. Both governments and popular media have spewed nothing but propaganda, much of it is quite ridiculous. The result has been that anyone who has such an anomalous experience is considered a liar or a lunatic. But now the outer crust of the lies is breaking down. Unfortunately, I believe this makes way for an even Greater Lie.  My alarm is focused on the most disturbing aspect of these anomalous experiences.

Strange “craft” are being seen above cities all over the world.  They operate in ways that are impossible for the latest human technology. This has been going on for a long time.  What are they doing here, just flying around observing?  The deeper you study everything related to this phenomena, the more frightening it gets.

One man who has studied it for many years is David M. Jacobs, Ph.D., a professor at Temple University. The more he studied, the more worried Dr. Jacobs became.  These unknown “craft” weren’t just flying around.  Many people were having very personal and very frightening contacts with them. Dr. Jacobs was curious about how many were having such “contact” experiences, so he and several other researchers joined forces and constructed a survey. It was conducted in the summer of 1991 by the Roper organization, a highly professional group. It wasn’t conducted over the telephone as so many surveys are.  It was done in-home with an interviewer asking questions and recording answers on a form.

A typical national survey randomly selects 1600 people which is considered a large enough sample from which to project accurate results.  Knowing that their survey would be considered very controversial, Dr. Jacobs and his associates demanded a much larger sample.  Ultimately, personal interviews were taken with 5947 individuals in the United States.  Such a large sample gave an error range of only 1.4 percent.  Dr. Jacobs makes it clear that what was conducted was not an opinion poll, but one that examined personal experiences.  The number of people who reported terrifying experiences was frighteningly high.

18 percent had awakened during the night paralyzed with a strange, evil presence in the room.

15 percent had seen a terrifying figure.

14 percent had left their bodies.

13 percent had missing time.

11 percent had seen a “ghost”.

10 percent had flown through the air.

8 percent had seen balls of light in the room.

8 percent had puzzling scars.

7 percent had seen a UFO.

5 percent had dreams of UFOs.

The final analysis was that 2 percent of the American population, approximately 5 million people at that time, reported markers that were consistent with individuals who had experienced “alien” abduction.  This is defined as being removed from their homes against their will and being transported to a strange “scientific” environment somewhere above the earth where sexual experiments were done on them, the removal of sperm and eggs. In most cases of abduction, these experiences happened many times during their lives. There are many, many such reports.

You may ask yourself, how could a rational person believe such reports?  Doesn’t all of it fit into what are known as “night terrors”?  I am well aware of the psychological explanations regarding such experiences.  They are wholly inadequate to explain them.

My wife, Carel, will tell you what happened to her.

Carel:  There is a book by sociologist, David J. Hufford, entitled, The Terror that Comes in the Night. The subtitle of the book describes the contents as “An Experience-Centered Study of Supernatural Assault Traditions”. According to Hufford’s research about a sixth of the population experience the phenomenon described in his book, yet almost no one talks about it.  Dr. Hufford did his research while teaching at two different universities, one in Canada and the other in Southwestern United States.  The people in each city had no contact with each other, yet described very similar experiences.

In 1973 Coleman and I and our two baby boys lived in Virginia. Coleman was working for Christianity Today magazine as advertising manager and I was a stay-at-home mom doing some freelance artwork. One night I woke up instantaneously. My eyes flew open. I was totally awake with the sense that something was very wrong. That sense moved very quickly to terror. I was paralyzed, unable to move anything except my eyes.

To my left, over my husband’s sleeping body, I could see three figures gliding into the room. Their feet, which I couldn’t see because a monk-like robe covered them, never touched the ground. They were coming out of the walk-in closet and my first thought was, “How did they get into the closet?” It was communicated to me in some fashion, I don’t know how that they had come in through the large second-story window in the nursery where our little boys were sleeping. I knew they were very, very angry with me for some reason, but I didn’t know why. They communicated to me, without speaking, that they were going to levitate my stiff body, slam me through the window above our bed and drop me on my head killing me. They wanted me to know that my husband would be blamed for my death.

I had no doubt that they were capable of doing this and my terror escalated. I tried to scream at Coleman to wake up but I couldn’t. My vocal cords were paralyzed. Then I began to pray. I tried to call out, “JESUS.” Again nothing would come out of my mouth other than grunts. Once more I tried to say “JESUS.” More grunts. Finally, a garbled “Jesus” came out of my mouth. At the name of Jesus, the beings vanished into the air.

I immediately woke Coleman and told him what had happened. After comforting me, the inevitable question came. He said, “Are you sure it wasn’t just a bad dream?” Irritated, I replied, “Yes, I’m sure. Because if it was a bad dream I’m still dreaming. I awoke before it began and I have not awakened since. Besides, I just KNOW it was real.” At the time, neither one of us knew what to do with this experience, so I filed it away and didn’t talk about it again for 20 years.

Then about twenty years later Coleman was writing a pilot for a television series that was supposed to be about all sorts of strange phenomena. He gave me a book on alien abduction and asked me to read it and see if there might be any story ideas in it that he could use. As I read the book it struck me how similar these people’s experiences were to mine. Then I came across a drawing of one person’s alien abductor. It was eerie. He had drawn the same beings that had come into my room.

At the same time, I was reading a book about several missionaries who had gone to a variety of Third World countries. The book was entitled, Demon Experiences in Many Lands published by Moody Bible Institute in Chicago in 1960. In the preface we find this statement by the publishers: “It has been many years since any serious study of demon experiences has been published, and possibly never before a compilation from competent observers in many parts of the world. The reason for this omission is not clear, but the result has been a feeling on the part of many Christians that these strange (to us moderns) phenomena were only valid in Bible times.”

Several of the missionaries had this attitude themselves when their story begins. Most were totally unprepared for the assaults that they and their new converts would confront. Several of these experiences were very similar to the ones described in Hufford’s book and countless alien abduction books. A conclusion from Hufford’s book is that people unfamiliar with any notion of what he calls an “Old Hag tradition” describe their symptoms precisely in accordance with those who are aware of that tradition. All of these missionaries came to the same conclusion. They believed they were confronting evil spirits known as demons. Each looked to the Bible to learn how to deal with them.

As I began to form my own opinion about my night terror experience I went to the Internet to see if anyone else had a similar experience. Was I the only person who has used the name of “Jesus” to end a night terror or alien abduction? I found an article from Florida Today magazine for August 17, 1997, written by Rita Elkins concerning alien abduction and its similarity to demonic oppression. She quotes Joe Jordan, a director for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) a clearinghouse for UFO related research. When he is not checking out UFO claims for MUFON he works in product development and engineering for Sea Ray Boats. He and his partner Wes Clark, also a member of MUFON, who is a quality control engineer at the Kennedy Space Center, have, through their work at MUFON, come across several people who have been able to stop their abduction experience by calling on the name of Jesus. He shared a taped interview with Elkins for her article in Florida Today:

Jordan punches buttons on a tape recorder. A nameless, 30-something man with an intelligent-sounding voice, slightly Southern, tells his story. Calmly at first.

“There were strange lights in a nearby woods at bedtime, barking dogs.” He is up and down a few times; yelling at the dogs while his wife sleeps soundly. Then lying down again…”I couldn’t move…grey fog. I couldn’t see anything, but it was like someone was here.” He felt himself lifted off the bed. “I was terrified, so helpless… screaming inside, but I couldn’t get it out.”

The voice is less calm now, but still certain, not hesitant.

“I thought I was having a satanic experience that the devil had gotten hold of me and had shoved a pole up my rectum and was holding me up in the air…so helpless. I couldn’t do anything.”

A non-religious person, he’d been to church with his wife a few times.

“I said, ‘Jesus, Jesus, help me,’ or ‘Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!’ And when I did, there was a feeling or a sound or something. That either my words that I had thought or words that I had tried to say or whatever, hurt whatever was holding me up in the air on this pole. And I felt it was withdrawn, and I fell. I hit the bed, because it was like I was thrown back in the bed. I really can’t tell what it was. But when I did, my wife woke up and asked why I was jumping on the bed”

Elkins goes on to say, “Relentless anonymity is given in abduction research. Nobody in their right mind wants family, friends and co-workers to know they’ve had their personal space violated against their will by strange-looking creatures whose existence isn’t even proven.”

Jordan told Elkins that three other researchers had had similar cases. They had not revealed this because they felt it would hurt their credibility, especially among the folks that invite them to speak at UFO Conventions. I certainly can understand this. A number of years ago, Coleman and I went to a UFO Convention in San Francisco. Most of the people there were definitely New Agers and didn’t seem to be open to traditional religion at all. In spite of the fact that abduction experiences are described as horrible, brutal and denigrating many believe they are done by “good aliens” and are somehow beneficial to humankind. So my question is, do you really think alien “space brothers” are assaulting us or could there be a demonic connection to these experiences? If there are people experiencing these assaults who want them to stop, I can offer hope.

My younger son was taking a college class at a local university. The teacher of this class, which was a language class and had nothing to do with what I am writing about today, began asking the same questions that were asked in the Roper Poll. After a few questions, one girl raised her hand and began to tell the class about her abduction experience. When she had finished, my son said to her, “There is a way to stop these experiences if you want to.” The teacher interrupted, “No, there is no way to stop them!” “Yes!” my son replied, “They can be stopped.” “No they cannot. We have to get back to our subject.”

I want people to know that my son’s teacher is wrong. There is a way to stop these experiences. Please don’t think that I am saying that the name “Jesus” is magic. It is not magic, but it does have great power. The Creator of the Universe knows his children. The Good Shepard knows His sheep. Surely if He was willing to die for our sins, He is able to protect us from the Evil Ones. Put your faith in Him. (End of Carel’s statement.)

We are in a war and the enemy is all around us.

    Coleman, your gifts of storytelling are on full display but I am left with the feeling that the line between what you believe and what you are conjecturing has been blurred. Am I wrong to believe that you have more to add to this narrative apart from Carel’s concluding statement? In any event I found it kept me reading but seems to me to be unfinished.

      That depends on what you mean by belief and conjecture. One person’s belief may be another person’s conjecture. Whether I have blurred to inaccuracy remains to be seen. Parts 3 and 4 are coming.

    I have had such experience’s twice, that is night choking at night and barely being able to blurt out “Jesus” and then the demons immediately leaving. Once as a new Christian at university in Madison, Wi – and some years later as a missionary in Calcutta (as it was). The reality of the superiority of the Name of Jesus over these beings was ingrained in me and I am free from the initial fear I had in Madison. Jesus is Lord!
