One of the more popular medieval paintings depicting UFO's is of the Crucifixion painted in 1350. These two unexplainable flying objects don't only have people seated at controls but the scene suggests one to be chasing the other while below them the tortured body of Christ hung on the cross. The depiction of this scene is beyond just wild imagination on behalf of the artist in an era when the UFO phenomenon did not exist.

This article fits in with my current theme of discussion. It concerns a newly discovered ancient text from the Vatican archives. We need to remember that there were many other Christian texts that were circulating amongst the first Christians, like the book of Enoch, that were excluded by the church started by Constantine. Even the Bible that we possess today is only a small version of what once constituted the Canon. During the passing centuries the Bible was consistently stripped down to size by the constantly changing seats of power. Even today we have two versions of the Catholic Bible - the standard King James, which is the most commonly used, and the Jerusalem Bible which still includes parts of the Apocrypha. Most of what we find in the excluded, and some hidden books, we may ultimately conceive as weird and unbelievable simply because the events were never implemented into the story of Christ.
Rediscovered Ancient Text Tells a Different Three Wise Men Tale
In the 'Revelation of the Magi,' Christ Appears as a 'Star-Child'
By KATIE HINMAN
Dec. 23, 2010
An ancient text called the "Revelation of the Magi," has been rediscovered and tells a very different version of the Three Wise Men's journey to Bethlehem.
"It ends up being the most complex, richest, most strange, the strangest story of the Wise Men to come out of Christian antiquity," said Brent Landau, an expert in ancient Biblical languages and literature. "Until now, it had never been translated into English."
Landau, who teaches in the Religious Studies program at the University of Oklahoma, translated the text from Syriac and published it in his book, "The Revelations of the Magi: The Lost Tale of the Wise Men's Journey to Bethlehem."
The ancient text's original author is still unknown, although it is written from the point of view of the Magi themselves. Landau tracked it down in the Vatican archives and believes it is about 1,700 years old.
"It's an incredibly grand story," Landau said. "So who the Magi are in this text is, they are descendants of Adam and Eve's third son, Seth. They live in this far eastern land. The text calls the land 'Shir' and from other ancient texts, it seems like the place it had in mind is the land of China."
Landau said the rediscovered text described the Magi as practicing religious rituals, waiting for the Star of Bethlehem to appear. When the star finally did, they embarked on their journey to the City of David.
But the version of the Wise Men's story in this text is strikingly different than the traditional one in the Bible, told in 12 verses in the Gospel of Matthew.
In the "Revelation of the Magi," Landau said, the Star of Bethlehem not only led the Wise Men, but actually became the Christ child.
"The cave is filled with light," Landau said, describing the transcribed text. "They're kind of hesitant about this, but eventually the star...its light concentrates and reveals the small luminous human being...a star child, if you will...it's Christ."
Landau Says the Ancient Text Is a Lost Message From Early Christians
In this version, Landau said the most startling, and controversial, difference is what happened next in the story, when the "star child" spoke to the Magi.
"Christ tells them, 'This is one of many occasions on which I have appeared to the peoples of the world,'" Landau said. "So this text may even be saying that there are no non-Christian religions because Christ is the revelation behind everything."
Landau hypothesized that the text a sort of lost message about them from an early Christian community.
"I think the thing that stunned me the most was what it seemed to be suggesting about...the scope of Christ's revelation, if you will," he said.
We traveled to Bethlehem to track the mysterious journey of the Magi.
Shimon Gibson, a Biblical archeologist and author of several books, including "The Final Days of Jesus: The Archeological Evidence," showed us the roads coming from the east that lead up to Bethlehem.
"There is one road, which goes all the way to China, and it's called the Spice Route," he said. "[It] sort of came up through the desert and would have been a common sight, I think, at the time of Jesus, to see tradesmen coming along with their caravans."
Gibson acknowledged that the landscape described in the Gospel of Matthew is similar to what one sees in modern Israel, but it would be "impossible" to prove that the famed Wise Men actually traveled to Bethlehem.
"But there is a tradition there that's linked into a certain reality," he said.
Gibson added that the elements of the familiar Nativity scene made sense based on the historical and archeological data of the time.
"If you were arriving in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago and someone said, 'We're going to give you the stable to sleep in,' this is not being rude, they're actually being nice," Gibson said. "It's the warmest room in the house...very different than the story of Sunday school approach."
Biblical Scholar: 'The Wise Men Represent Blessing'
The rediscovered text won't change the treasured Biblical story of the Journey of the Magi. But their destination to the Holy Land continues to inspire awe and wonderment for the Christian pilgrims who travel to Bethlehem every year to trace their path.
According to Israeli government tourism figures, 1.4 million people have visited the sacred ground of Bethlehem so far this year. Millions more have been coming for centuries. In ancient times, travelers from the East would cross miles of desert for months to reach Bethlehem, as the Wise Men did in the Gospel of Matthew.
"[The Wise Men] represent blessing, maybe unexpected blessing," said Paul Wright, Biblical scholar and president of Jerusalem University College.
"There is something here," he added. "Coming from the east, into this land of Canaan, of Israel, that brings people home, to the place they're supposed to be. Somehow they were coming to a place where they belonged."

We have to remember that UFO's, or flying saucers were unknown in those early centuries and did not come into prominence until after the Second World War. You can see that the artist is depicting a beam of light leaving the craft and touching Mary's head. Was it communication of the Holy Spirit, or Gabriel?
By including the luminous dove in the beam the artist conveys the Holy Spirit. What insight did he possess to assume that the Spirit could come from such a saucer? Fantasy? Delusion? Did Jesus come from the saucer rather than the House of David? Interesting concepts.
Above Mary's left shoulder is a shining, or glowing, disk shaped object. A man and his dog can clearly be seen looking up at the floating object. Painted in the 15th century by an unknown artist.
The Baptism of Jesus was painted in 1710. Here again the Holy Spirit is depicted as having come from an overhead saucer shaped object. It is only after this baptism that Jesus began his three year mission.

Whirlwinds and heavenly chariots
There are many mysteries concerning Jesus the Christ and there is evidence both from the Gospels, Gnostic writings, and medieval paintings of extraterrestrial connections. Possibly the first connection begins with Enoch who was removed without seeing death. When we read the story of Enoch and his journey of the Seven Heavens, or worlds, however the case may be, we can reach the conclusion that he experienced some manner of time travel for he was returned to earth many centuries later and was told to write down what he had experienced during his brief journey. Now the book of Enoch, believed to be a 1st century work, has been deemed uninspired, or non authentic by the early Church Fathers. Why they have formed this decision is anyone's guess but we know that the writings of Enoch must have been extensively studied by the early Christians as passages of Enoch's prophesies were quoted in the Letter of Jude within New Testament writings. Now if the early Christians themselves considered Enoch's writing as uninspired or non authentic - why quote from his work?
The next Biblical person to have been whisked away from this earth without passing through death was Elijah, and in my opinion, the most prominent prophet of the Northern Kingdom of Israel (not Judah). Prominent because he also had the ability to raise the dead and call fire from heaven, as well as being prophesized to possess the body of the much later prophet, John the Baptist, the forerunner of the coming of Christ. Like Melchizedek, the origins of Elijah are also shrouded in mystery and in the Kabalistic writings he is mentioned as having been an angel in human form, also having no mother and father. At the end of his mission he transferred his power and authority to his protégé and was whisked away by heavenly chariots.
Naturally we have Ezekiel and his well documented cherubim and wheels. It is mainly because of Ezekiel's experience of his "winged creatures" that we have the conception that angels have wings, which in reality they don't. Another interesting point about the "whirlwinds" whenever they appear is that they always approach from the north.

The Orion and the Garden of Eden
I think I have already mentioned this elsewhere in this blog, when I unexpectedly found myself on some planet somewhere within the Orion Constellation. It happened during an initiation just over ten years ago. The entire experience lasted for no more than 1 minute. Naturally, I was in the spirit. The first feeling I had was an overpowering sense of home sickness. I knew that this was the place from whence I came. Maybe even originated there. I ended up near some cheaply constructed dwelling consisting of branches and leaves, definitely not a permanent dwelling, suggesting that the people were nomads, staying in the one place only so long without depleting the area they occupied. I only saw about 3 people, human, tall and dressed in thin linen gowns with patterns, suggesting a constant warm climate. These people were not aware of my presence, or at least they made no effort in acknowledging me. The environment was indescribable and what was going through my thoughts was the Garden of Eden.
Did the ancients know of this place? Is this why they were so fascinated with the Orion that even the Giza Plateau is a star map of that constellation, the three pyramids representing the belt? Was this world the dream of the pharaohs? Maybe. Who knows. I've been pondering this ever since - is this the place from which I have fallen, or is it simply just one of many worlds in which I have lived? Although Spirit may show you things they don't particularly give you the answers, but let you ponder on the mystery of your own existence.
I am also convinced that we don't all come from the same place but we are resolving our karma together on this piece of dust. We recognize ourselves as physical beings, and somewhere along the way we have been classified as "human beings" but the learned know that the body is simply a vehicle in which some manner of spirit consciousness resides, but know not from where this consciousness has come from, or where this consciousness has been in the past, and what manner of karmic judgment this spirit consciousness must endure. In fact, we don't know what manner of creature resides in anyone's body. It can either be good or evil. I've seen some very ugly spirits concealed within human flesh. There are others also who testify that the greater element are close to demonic. This is a very real fact and we are all having a human experience.
Lets face it, the universe is filled with many different worlds, and on many of these worlds, the intelligent life that exists there is not what we would recognize as human. But it is not the physical body, the vehicle that is important, but the driver controlling that vehicle. If you study our physical vehicles, our bodily construction, we are hardly suitable to exist comfortably within earthly conditions in our raw state. By raw state I mean, look at the animals in their natural state, they are entirely adapted to cope within their environment. Evolution has given them exactly what they need in order to survive on this planet. If we were to live here relying solely on what evolution has given us, for example, take away our clothes, our heating, we could simply not survive in our natural environmental state of nakedness. We are not indigenous to this plant. There some who suggest that the Neanderthal is the indigenous species of this world, and there is evidence that Neanderthal and Homo Sapiens have for some time co-existed. They also believe that Bigfoot, or its various other names around the world, are a surviving remnant of Neanderthal.
Consider every species of life on this planet and how each species fits in perfectly into its natural environment and how it is engineered to survive within that environment. The monkey has no need to light fires, live in houses or don fur coats if the weather turns chilly. It is indigenous to this world and its immediate environment. The only creature out of place is the human species. So we need to ask ourselves: was the famed Garden of Eden ever on this planet? Or is this place where we were banished to? Adam and Eve were naked within their environment as much as the monkey can be considered naked in his environment. What caused Adam to cover himself with a fig leaf? What made him come aware of his natural state of nakedness, and be ashamed?

Blood line and Spirit line
We who are incarnated into these physical bodies are subjected to two distinct evolutionary lines. The line that is mainly influenced by karma we call the bloodline, and it is the family blood lines we continuously incarnate into. The more one frees oneself from karma the more control we gain over any particular bloodline. The more we evolve the more free we become and the more we can choose of what is, and what is not to inflict us while we are down here. The more we can plan our own destinies. Mind you, some of us, have a tendency to take on too much to free ourselves quicker, and sometimes we bite off more than we can choose. When we decide on these things, of what is and what is not to occur to us while on earth, is usually decided in a heavenly state of existence of peace and harmony, having well forgotten the terrible afflictions we decided upon ourselves the last time round. And while we are down here, "we do indeed groan, we who dwell in the body, wishing to put away this tent and to be with the Lord."
The Masters are not subjected to incarnate into human bloodlines as they are free from karmic chains. They are fully evolved into Spirit lines. We who are still struggling on the physical level are also, at the same time, evolving into our Spirit lines, and at death we endeavor to reconnect with these lines, and in this case we call them 'Group Souls.' The Masters also belong to Group Souls but they are of a more divine substance. Their incarnations on the physical level is purely voluntary, though they tend to incarnate into holy priestly physical lines. The Dead Sea Scrolls confirm what I'm writing as they record Melchizedek being a divine being with the title Elohim bestowed upon him, and Elohim is the god associated with the "creation" concept and not the "formation." Likewise, the Nag Hammadi Library also confirms that Melchizedek was Jesus. I try to double check these things to insure the information I'm receiving is as accurate as possible. And I'm writing in a hurry as don't have much time on my hands.
I am aware of some chapters of my "Autobiography" as seen through the Akashic Record and through the assistance of various guides and helpers. I myself have jumped through various physical bloodlines, whereas the one I am currently connected to will no longer exist once I depart this world. For many chapters now I have always incarnated into Germany as my starting base but have always lived the majority of my days in other countries. In my last incarnation I immigrated to America, probably around 1850, and crossed the plains into Indian territory. I saw this quite detailed through the Akashic during the era of the great Chief Sitting Bull. I also had a close connection with the Cherokees, but of which I know little, but have worked with a Cherokee Princess in spirit, one of the most powerful spirits I've ever had the privilege to experience.
If you want to know who I once was. I'll give you a clue - I wrote "Silent Night."
You don't believe me? Well, there's a lot more you will not believe, or at least doubt. That's only because you are stuck in the chapter of your own story, a chapter still needing completion. You can never know the story of your existence, and what brought you to this present time, unless you can turn back some of those pages, perhaps to the previous chapter, or the one before that, maybe then you will gain some inkling of who you are.
It's waiting for you.

Melchizedek Order of High Priest
One of the most mysterious and intriguing characters revealed to us through the Old Testament writings is Melchizedek. So little is known of him that he rarely gets a mention from church pulpits. He lived during the time of Abraham and was titled "king of Salem" later to be called Jerusalem. Salem means 'peace' so he was the king of peace, also Priest of God Most High. Melchizedek has no known genealogy line, no mother or father, no beginning or an end. So it doesn't take much to conclude that Melchizedek and Jesus are one and the same spirit. More on this later.
I'm bold enough to go back further into the past and say that the great Hindu master, Krishna, was also of the same spirit. Krishna himself once said that" Fools mock at me when they see me in my transcendental form but do not realize the power that I am and that rules above them." Also: "In order to deliver the pious and annihilate the miscreants I descend myself millennium after millennium." There are similarities between Krishna and Jesus, for instance, Jesus was the incarnation of God where Krishna was the incarnation of Vishnu, both representing the Supreme Being. Where Jesus is the divine shepherd, Krishna is the divine herdsman.
All three of these avatars can make claim to the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. The Krishna identity is that ancient that I will deal mainly with Melchizedek and Jesus, his later incarnations. Jesus himself referred to his ancient predestination by stating that before Moses was born, he already was.
We have to remember that Judah, now well interbred with Benjamin, forms only a very small part of Israel as a whole and it is in their interest that the identity of the Lost Tribes remains lost. Bear in mind here that that piece of land today called Israel is in many ways a deception and used only for religious and political purposes. To reclaim their birth land they should have retained the name of Judea not Israel as it has never been known as Israel, whom they always regarded as their enemies. The question is: does Jesus fit into any of the houses of Israel? I don't believe so.
Lets go back to the days of Melchizedek for a clue. We must remember that Jesus was to inherit his Divine titles hundreds of centuries later. When Melchizedek encountered Abraham, he and Sarah had not long left Egypt; Sarah having been expelled from Egypt by her husband Pharaoh, accompanied by Hagar, an Egyptian handmaiden. Hagar's presence in the wilderness, so commissioned by the Pharaoh, is itself a mysterious occurrence. These nomads, sheep herders, were considered an abomination to the Egyptians, thereby I hardly see it conceivable that the Pharaoh would command an Egyptian citizen to live as a slave to the wandering nomads. This could never have happened. So Hagar must have been there for another reason entirely. My conclusion is that Hagar was a Royal Midwife given charge over Sarah who was in child. My conclusion also is that Sarah was a Mesopotamian princess, Abraham her carer, and her journey into Egypt was to marry the king of Egypt, perhaps for political alliances, a common practice between royal and noble lineages. After all, Sarah, in Hebrew means princess.
Abraham and Sarah, after their sojourn in Egypt, remained residing in the land of Canaan, which some time after was referred to as 'the divine land' or the 'land for worship' by the gentiles that settled there. This was before the birth of Jacob, who became Israel and fathered the twelve tribes of Israel. There was no racial or blood connection between Abraham and Melchizedek, yet Melchizedek was the High Priest of Abraham's god. They were two entirely different racial lines. It is through the Divine Priestly line of Melchizedek that Jesus obviously descended from.

What are the first impressions that enter your mind when you hear the word 'Israel?' Isn't it Jewish? You straight away associate Israel with the Jews, and solely the Jews? But that's okay. That's how you have been conditioned to think. And if you are one of these Christians that carries the Old Testament in the back of your pocket you will also associate Israel as God's chosen people, and probably, as St. Paul stated: first the Jew and then the Gentile. You won't argue this as you were also taught that Jesus himself was a Jew. You would associate the Jews with the Holy Land without realizing that that land was considered holy by the gentiles long before the Jews settled there. If you were to dissect the name Israel you would get Is/is Ra/Elohim. Preordained for the English language?
When we consider the historical fact that Israel was constantly at war with Judah we are tempted to question - was Jesus really Jewish? It's obvious that the early Church Fathers were determined to connect Jesus to the House of David, in other words, Judah. They even drew out a long genealogy line connecting Jesus all the way down to Adam. This could not possibly be accurate because the emergence of man is much older than 6,000 years. They were determined also to connect Jesus to Biblical prophesies to an expected Jewish messiah whereas the Jews themselves never believed that Jesus was the promised one. They knew that Jesus was from Galilee which was known as the land of the gentiles and thereby not Jewish. Jesus declared himself as a messiah and the Jews pointed out to him that the messiah is prophesied to come through the House of David, to which Jesus replied: "If I am from the House of David, then why did David call me Lord?" Did Jesus here deny having come from the line of David?
We have to bear in mind that the gospels were written long after the event and were copies of earlier originals of which we have no knowledge, and we have no originals to compare the accuracy of later copies. Arguing that ancient prophesies foretold the coming of Christ because these things manifested in his life is no evidence of truth. Any later scribe trying to connect Jesus to these ancient prophesies could just as easily have added these events as having occurred in his life. But this doesn't actually mean that they did. It may simply be an attempt to convince people that Jesus was that promised Jewish messiah. If this is correct, as no one can prove it wrong, then it has worked. So it remains a matter of personal faith and belief.
Galilee lies in the north of the Holy Land and is where the real ancient Nation of Israel was located, stretching as far south to Samaria, to the border of ancient Judah. During the time of Christ all this area was under the jurisdiction of Judea under Roman rule. Although most of the ten tribes migrated abroad during the invasion, many of them returned to re-settle in their home land once peace was established with the seafarers. The Samaritans themselves, who were hated by the Jews, had always declared themselves as being part of the lost tribes of Israel.
The closest of Christ's disciples were Galileans. They spoke a different dialect as the Jews. We know this because when Peter denied Christ three times and entirely disassociated himself from Christ the Jews still accused him of being a follower of Christ by saying "You are one of them as your speech betrays you." besides being recognized as Galileans they were also referred to as the Nazarenes. Jesus of Nazareth is a badly mistranslated title as the correct translation is Jesus the Nazarene. They were also mentioned as the "sect of the Nazarenes.' Obviously, although coming under the dictates of Judaism, they were members of a different religious sect, as were the Essen's of the time.

A brief look at Israel
Today, as has been prophesied that "knowledge shall be in abundance," more and more people are questioning old Church teachings, especially the controversial genealogy line of Jesus, for instance, was he really a Jew? So I'll divulge some of my view points on the subject.
For starters, we need to understand that there are twelve houses forming the nation of Israel. The house of Dinah, was not recognized because she was female, otherwise there would have been thirteen houses. These twelve houses were formed by four different mothers, where Rachel, representing the pure love, whereas Leah, representing trickery and deception, the bloodline that Judah came into existence from. Whereas, the house of Joseph, came through Rachel and, through jealousy and resentment was forced into slavery by the other tribes, his step brothers. But this worked in Joseph's favor as he became the most high prince of Egypt, second only to the Pharaoh himself.
Controversy over Joseph:
Some historians are debating Joseph's sudden change of fortune and believe there this more to the story than what is written. They believe his real identity has been concealed during the manipulation of the ancient text. The more controversial historians point the finger at Isaac, that Abraham was not the father, but that Sarah conceived during her marriage to the king of Egypt. Then if this is so, we can accept a more realistic reason of why Joseph was in Egypt - simply claiming his royal inheritance passed on through his grandfather Isaac. Controversial Egyptologists associate the mummy Yuya as being the real historical Joseph. The Biblical story relates that Joseph married an Egyptian priestess and had two boys - the controversial opinion is that one of these boys married an Egyptian princess and later took the throne becoming the Amenhotep king line. Joseph himself claims that God has been good to him and made him father to Pharaoh. If these events are correct then we can have a better understanding of why Moses was a prince of Egypt, aka Akhenaton, the Amenhotep line, rather than the sad attempt of explaining his royalty by being set adrift as a baby on the Nile. The Ethiopians teach that Moses was not a prince, but rather king of Egypt.
The Biblical writings proclaim that Israel no longer walked according to the precepts of God and was therefore to be divided. Judah and Benjamin split from Israel as a whole and became solely known as Judah, the southern kingdom, whereas the other 10 Houses remained as the Nation of Israel, the northern kingdom. Until the eventual invasion of Israel, the northern kingdom, by the Seafarers, and the people scattered, Israel and Judah were at a constant state of war. A hundred years later the kingdom of Judah was also invaded but rather then being scattered were taken into captivity by the Babylonians. History has always known the whereabouts of Judah and Benjamin, but the northern kingdom became known as the Lost Tribes of Israel. Judah was held in captivity for seventy years and regained their freedom when the Persians conquered Babylon. It is believed that it was during this captivity that the identity of "Jews" was conjured upon Judah and Benjamin. With Israel now being historically lost for over a hundred and seventy years gave the intermingled Judah and Benjamin the freedom to adjust their historical record and identity. The temple in Jerusalem was rebuild and they retained their identity as Judah, not Israel, and the area in which they lived became known as Judea and was still called by that name at the birth of Christ. Hence we have Judeo-Christianity, a strongly Judah influenced religious faith.
If I have any of my historical references wrong feel free to comment with your accuracies.
