Encounters of the alien kind
Ezekiel’s Book was so controversial that it nearly did not survive the religious editors who did throw out the Book of Enoch.
The Book of Enoch was edited out of the Bible by the Ecumenical Council for its controversies. Enoch, like Ezekiel, was taken on many UFO rides just to highlight a couple.
The main reason Enoch’s Book was deemed heresy and taken out of the Old Testament could have been the accurate astronomy. Page after page concerns the sun, moon, yearly cycles and heavenly statistics. ‘Paths of the sun and moon,’ ‘their stately orbits,’ ‘courses of the luminaries’ and ‘revolve in their circular chariots’ are only a few quotes of Enochian wisdom. Ecumenical editing condemned accurate astronomy. Galileo knew all to well. Religious officials wanted the public to think that the Earth was flat, did not move and was in the center of all things.
‘…a whirlwind carried me off from the earth…’
‘And thence I went over the summits of the earth, and passed above the Erythraean Sea, and went far from it, and passed over the angel Zotiel??
‘I looked and saw a lofty throne: its appearance was as crystal and the wheels thereof as the shining sun…from underneath the throne came streams of flaming fire so great that I could not look thereon.’
‘And I saw in the heaven running in the world, above those portals in which revolve the stars that never set.’ Only from space are there stars that never set.
Before the Red Sea parted, there were two UFOs leading the people out of Egypt.
‘And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them away; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night.’
