This technique was developed at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in Menlo Park, CA under the name STARGATE; it was also funded under other names such as Grill Flame and Sun Streak. The procedure involves the use of paranormal methodologies similar to the ones used by the Rosicrucians and Scientology; that is to say, "soul travel" or "astral projection" - a belief that the soul can leave the physical body and travel to other locations.
The CIA initiated Project STARGATE in the early 1970s out of a concern that the Soviet Union had achieved significant breakthroughs in "psychotronic research."
The work in remote viewing at SRI was conducted under the supervision of Russell Targ and Harold Puthoff of the NSA (the National Security Agency). The effort initially focused on a few "gifted individuals" such as New York artist Ingo Swann who is a renowned Scientologist. Individuals who appeared to show potential were trained and taught to use their talents for "psychic warfare." The minimum accuracy needed by the clients was said to be 65%; but this accuracy was "greatly exceeded" during the SRI experiments.
THE METAPHYSICAL ROOTS
TARG: That's right. One of our most successful viewers was the ex-police commissioner of Burbank, California, Pat Price. He came to us and said, 'I've been using this kind of ability all my life to catch criminals. Would you like to work with me'? We thought that was very interesting, since he had his scrapbook with him and showed us all his clippings from his successful exploits as police commissioner. We did a number of trials with Price and sat in the screened room with him. One day he said, 'You know, we really don't have to wait for the travelers to get to their distant location. I could tell you right now where they're going to be when they get there'. He then gave us a detailed description of little boats in a marina, and a restaurant and a manicured lawn. A half hour later they arrived at their site, and a half hour after that they came back to SRI, and that was one of the most accurate descriptions we'd ever had. We have found
Targeting "enemies of the state" for death using "Remote Viewing"
Without mentioning the initial step in this process - i.e., the military use of "remote viewing" - William Saletan describes in Slate Magazine how and why the process described above is being used by America's "hunter-killer" groups:
"Client states [i.e., U.S. puppet states such as Pakistan] can be so annoying. You can't get them to police terrorists along their borders; you can't get them to countenance publicly your troops inhabiting their country. So when you can't be there in the flesh-and you can't persuade your ally to help-the next-best thing is to be there in the nonflesh. Send in the drones.
"That's what we've been doing in Pakistan. Remotely operated American unmanned aerial vehicles have been hunting and killing al-Qaida and Taliban honchos there for years. Six months ago, we took out a high-level al-Qaida commander. Monday morning, we took out another. After complaining for weeks that Pakistan isn't doing the job, we took care of it ourselves, killing a top al-Qaida trainer and weapons expert with missiles fired from a ‘remotely piloted aircraft'."
Targeting the enemy along the Afghan / Pakistani border: Use REMOTE VIEWERS to first find the target; then use unmanned drones to confirm the target and then "kill" it.
NOTE: The question naturally arises, Why isn't this technique being used to hunt down Osama bin Laden? The reason, according to many sources, is that America's intelligence agencies have known for a long time where bin Laden is. They have not killed him because it is not in their interest to do so. [Please see our article, "Promoting Chaos in the Interest of the American New World Order System."]
Now, consider for a moment the words that Targ and his colleagues in academia are using:
These are all words used in describing the paranormal - WHICH IS, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, THE UNLAWFUL CONNECTION BETWEEN THE "SPIRIT WORLD" AND THE "WORLD OF MAN."
Standing between two worlds
NOTE: One should understand in this connection that for these malignant beings to bridge the gap between themselves and man, they need the cooperation of man. They evidently cannot succeed in this endeavor without man's help. [Please see our articles, "The God-Men of the American New World Order System" and "Luciferic Christianity."]
Moreover, like all those who attempt to bridge this gap - using religion or science, again, no matter - they have formed themselves into a cult; IN THIS CASE, IT IS A CULT PROTECTED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND SPONSORED BY ACADEMIA AND THE CIA. Ryan Dube, an electrical engineer with 15 years of experience in IT (information technology) industry, writes:
"Like many other belief systems that originate out of what are actually paranormal concepts, the government's analysis of the psychic phenomenon that resulted from STARGATE eventually resulted in a whole community of believers within the government's scientific community.
"In 1979, when the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) took over funding and tasking of remote viewing research, interest within intelligence and scientific circles was spreading rapidly. By 1980, project GRILL FLAME was the collective code for all ongoing projects under the collective oversight of the DIA.
"Headquarters for GRILL FLAME was Fort Meade, Maryland. This was the location where the NSA and the Army's INSCOM (United States Army Intelligence and Security Command) conducted a majority of the RV (Remote Viewing) research. In 1979, very few individuals knew of the existence of the government's RV program. According to a particular Army memo: 'Access is limited to those personnel approved on a by name basis'.

"Listed below are the individuals who were influenced either directly or indirectly from their interactions with SRI labs, from remote viewing research, and/or from the established 'training/auditing' procedures that were involved. IN ALMOST ALL CASES, ONE CAN SEE HOW THIS PERIOD OF 'RESEARCH' IN THE GOVERNMENT'S HISTORY RESULTED IN THE FORMATION OF A CULT, OF SORTS."
NOTE: It should be understood that ALL the individuals listed below are either high-ranking military officers and/or leading academicians; two are (were) members of Congress. Together they formed a kind of "government cult" insofar as the investigation of the paranormal was concerned. Many are (were) members of the ESALEN INSTITUTE whose early members included Arnold Toynbee, theologian Paul Tillich, two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling, Carl Rogers, B.F Skinner, Virginia Satir, Buckminster Fuller, Ansel Adams, Michael Harner, Richard Alpert, Robert Nadeau, Timothy Leary, J.B. Rhine and Gia-Fu Feng. Esalen says it is dedicated to "exploring work in the humanities and sciences that furthers the full realization of what Aldous Huxley called the 'human potential'."]

An unusual number of the members of the government-sponsored paranormal cult are Scientologists
Dean Radin - Took a leave of absence from Bell Labs in 1985, and spent the entire year at SRI International, working with Hal Puthoff and Ed May. Since then, his academic research has been exclusively on psi phenomena, and industrial research at least 20% psi. As of 1996, was working with Joe McMoneagle in a project remote-viewing future technology. Once funded by the Bigelow Foundation. Prior to becoming President of the Boundary Institute, he was in charge of a psi research program at Interval Research Corp in Palo Alto, California. Dean Radin earned a BSEE in EE, with honors, from Univ. of Mass, and an MS in EE and PhD in Educational Psychology, both from Univ. of Ill. For 10 years was a member of technical staff at AT&T Bell Labs and later a principle member of the tech staff at GTE Labs, where he was engaged in R&D on a wide variety of advanced telecommunications products and systems.
Mel Riley - Military remote-viewer at Ft. Meade, 1978-1990. RV session with Riley monitored by Ed Dames was shown in "Psi-Files: The Real X-files", written and narrated by Jim Schnabel. Riley left the Army in 1991, and lives in Wisconsin, where he is considered to be an expert in American Indian culture.
Charlie Rose - Congressional Democrat from NC, and one of the bigger supporters of the government remote viewing program. Friends with Ingo Swann and Jack Verona.
Stephan Schwartz - Former Navy officer and psychic researcher. Schwartz helped procure a submarine for a July 1977 experiment with SRI. These experiments included some on behalf of Dale Graff of the Air Force. A Research associate with the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory.
Five-levels of consciousness according to Scientology (and, ipso facto, SRI)
Paul Smith : Joined the operational remote viewing unit at Ft. Meade from 1983 to 1990. Personally trained by Ingo Swann at SRI-International. He was the primary author of the government RV program's CRV training manual, and served as theory instructor for new CRV trainee personnel, as well as recruiting assessment officer and unit security officer. Prior to this, he was with an INSCOM operations unit in Germany.
General Albert Stubblebine: Former head of U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) 1981 - 1984. Signed classified contracts with the Monroe Institute. Former box with Col. John Alexander, and the two have held numerous "spoon-bending" parties. Married to ufologist Rima Laibow. Soon after becoming head of INSCOM, Stubblebine began a program called the "High Performance Task Force", a series of methods to improve his officer's performance. These ranged from the neruo-linquistic programming of Tony Robbins to the hemisynch tapes of the Monroe Institute, where Stubblebine often sent his officers.
Ingo Swann - Swann helped establish Scientology's "Celebrity Center" in Los Angeles. According to Peter Tomkins and Chirstopher Bird, Swann "attributes his success to techniques he learned in Scientology". Swann and Puthoff attended the First International Congress on Psychotronic Research in Prague, Czechoslovakia. "Ingo was there to present a paper on the Scientology paradigm as model for developing and exploring paranormal abilities." He is/was friends with Rep. Charlie Rose.
Russell Targ - Targ is a senior research physicist at Stanford Research Institute, having joined their electronics and bioengineering laboratory in 1972. Prior to that, he spent 10 years in laser and plasma physics research with Sylvania Corporation, developing gas lasers ... He is also president of the Parapsychology Research Group, Inc., in Palo Alto, California." In 1982, Targ left SRI and founded Delphi Associates with Keith Harary. Delphi Associates was a consultancy which sought to apply psi to finding oil, gas, etc. Using Harary as a viewer, they claimed to have successfully traded in the silver market. In Spring, 1982, Targ turned in a research report to his DIA contract manager at SRI, Jim Salyer. In early 1983, he left SRI, reportedly claiming that he left because he didn't like the military applications of psychic research.
Charles Tart - Around 1979, SRI funded a project of Tart's which screened university students and faculty for psychic ability. Currently teaching at Univ of Las Vegas as part of Robert Bigelow's Bigelow Chair of Consciousness Studies.
Ed Thompson - Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence (ACSI), US Army, 1977-81. During this time, he was briefed by SRI on the remote viewing program. After having tried it himself, viewing a Masonic temple near the target train station, Thompson set up Project Grill Flame at Fort Meade.
Jack Vorona - Former head of DIA's Scientific and Technical Intelligence Directorate. Oversaw the funding and tasking of Grill Flame. Oversaw "Sleeping Beauty" - which dealt with researching microwaves and how they effect the human mind.
Jolly West - West was a veteran of CIA's MKULTRA, and worked on interrogation techniques using hypnosis and LSD. According to an anonymous BBC television reporter, West headed up the medical oversight for the Ft. Meade remote-viewing operational unit. He was a member of the medical oversight board for Science Applications International Corp (SAIC) remote-viewing research in the early 1990s.
AND MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT - THE PEOPLE LISTED ABOVE ARE EVERY BIT AS MUCH A CULT AS ANY WACKY RELIGIOUS GROUP SUCH AS THE BRANCH DAVIDIANS, THE ROSICRUCIANS, HEAVEN'S GATE, THE AARONIC ORDER, CHRYSALIS, THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY, VISION QUEST, ETC; ONLY IN THIS CASE, UNLIKE THE GROUPS LISTED ABOVE, THE CULT THEY HAVE FORMED IS A GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED CULT POSSESSING GOVERNMENT FUNDING AND GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS.
Finally, it should be noted that the individuals described above represent nothing more than the tip of the iceberg insofar as the number of scientists, businessmen and high-ranking military officers who subscribe to the belief system this cult promulgates; the fact is, government-sponsored research into the paranormal involves hundreds and hundreds of America's institutions of higher learning including the University of California, Stanford, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Michigan, Columbia, the University of Chicago, ad nauseum, ad infinitum as well as innumerable private labs - and one can only assume that those who are involved in this research are also - so to speak - members of this cult if only because they subscribe in one way or another to the same belief system that the scientists at SRI subscribe.
Now we come to an exceedingly interesting subject: In almost every instance, members of the government-sponsored cult described above harbor a belief in UFOs and extraterrestrials (ETs).
Now think about that for a minute! - These men work for a government (directly or indirectly) that publicly denies the existence of UFOs while all the while sponsoring a CULT of eminent scientists and academicians who not only believe in the existence of UFOs, but whose research is essentially tied to this belief.
One cannot help but hear echoes from the X-Files here:
Richard Dolan, a investigative journalist who did his graduate work at the University of Rochester, writes on this duality:
"One may know that something is true - like, for instance, the reality of UFOs - but so what? At the societal level, knowledge often fails to translate into action. Frequently, it can't even get an official acknowledgment.
"Pick a topic. Narcotics trafficking? Many detailed studies have linked narco-traffickers to the global intelligence community (including, of course, the American). The JFK assassination? Eighty percent of Americans, supported by a mountain of well-researched evidence, believe there was a conspiracy to kill the President. The environment? Most scientists now agree that our civilization, within a mere century, has caused a rate of species extinction that rivals some of the most vicious in our Earth's natural history.
NOTE: In this regard, I cannot help but ask myself, Where have all the frogs and tadpoles that I saw in abundance in my youth 68-years ago gone? Where have all the butterflies gone?
15,589 species (7,266 animal species and 8,323 plant and lichen species) are now considered at risk of extinction - an increase of 3,330 species since the 2003 Red List. The increase is largely due to the fact that scientists have finally been able to assess all of the world's amphibians. One in three amphibians and almost half of turtles and tortoises are known to be threatened with extinction, along with one in four mammals, one in five sharks and rays, and one in eight birds. The numbers of threatened species are increasing across almost all major taxonomic groups.
"And, oh yes, we appear to be heating ourselves into the stratosphere, too.
"The result from such societal knowledge? Nothing much. Banks and spooks continue to launder drug money, official quarters explain away the public's so-called 'need' to believe in an assassination conspiracy, and people continue to turn the natural world into a toxic suburban development." [Please see our articles, "MK-Ultra: The Search for the Manchurian Candidate" and "Conspiracy Theories;" please also see "Now Is the Time to Do Something; It May Be too Late Tomorrow."]
The propensity of the government to lie about these things is breath-taking! AND THIS IS CERTAINLY TRUE REGARDING THE UFO PHENOMENON.
That there is something "out there," there can be no question; however, the Bible - AND THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - does not speak of life beyond this planet, that is to say extraterrestrial life - at least the kind that the Star Trek crew discovered in its fictional flight throughout the universe, AND WE - AT LEAST THOSE OF US WHO TAKE THE BIBLE SERIOUSLY - ARE LEFT TO PONDER THE VERY FRIGHTENING POSSIBILITY THAT WE ARE ALONE (AT LEAST AS MORTAL BEINGS) IN THIS UNIVERSE.
NOTE: The Bible does speak, of course, of a "spiritual realm" that exists in the universe - a realm that is populated by "spirit beings" - but it does not speak of other planets where mortal beings like man dwell.
By any account, this is a terrible thing to ponder. It is perhaps for this reason that we dream dreams of space flight and meeting other life-forms such as the Romulans, the Vulcans, the Klingons and the Ferengi in Star Trek and Deep Space 9 - and all this despite the biblical evidence which points unwaveringly towards our "aloneness."
IT'S AS IF MANKIND HAS BEEN QUARANTINED BY A MYSTERIOUS FORCE AND PLACED AT THE FARTHEST EXTREME OF THE UNIVERSE SO AS NOT TO CONTAMINATE THE REST OF THE COSMOS WITH SOME HORRIBLE DISEASE.
And it's not just the Bible that hints at our "aloneness;" that alludes to the quarantine that has been imposed on us; but what little that science can tell us concerning the possibility of life beyond earth - any life, let alone life similar to ours - is not encouraging. Indeed, the more science has searched the universe for life, the bleaker the possibility for discovering such life seems. Even man's short excursions into space have not given us much encouragement regarding the possibility of man sustaining life in any kind of meaningful way beyond our lonely planet.
The somber, even frightening, fact is, everyone who has ventured out into space has sustained considerable damage to his body. It is this more than anything else that has blocked NASA from seriously considering the thought of a manned space expedition to Mars: It has become ever more apparent that those undertaking such a space journey would suffer incredible amounts of radiation poisoning from solar flares - radiation poisoning that earth's life-sustaining atmosphere protects man from, but which obviously would not be available to a space crew on a trip that would take a very extended period of time to complete (a matter of several years).
NOTE: Now there is a very good reason why man has been quarantined (as it were) on planet earth - and that reason is SIN. We live in a culture where the concept of sin has become entangled in legalistic arguments over right and wrong. When many of us consider "What is sin?" we think of violations of the Ten Commandments. Even then, we tend to think of murder and adultery as "major" sins compared with lying, cursing, or idolatry. The truth is that sin, as defined in the original translations of the Bible, means "TO MISS THE MARK." The mark, in this case, is the standard of perfection established by God and evidenced by Jesus. Viewed in that light, it is clear that we are all sinners.
Tragically, sin in any amount will distance us from God - AND THAT DISTANCE IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS STATIC, BUT SOMETHING THAT INCREASES WITH TIME. THUS, IT NOT ONLY SEPARATES GOD FROM HIS CREATION, BUT IT INCREASES THAT SEPARATION AS TIME GOES ON. IT IS FOR THIS REASON THAT MAN HAS BEEN QUARANTINED ON PLANET EARTH - to prevent the spread of this sin (this disease, as it were) into the larger cosmos; and make no mistake about it, we all deserve to be quarantined, BECAUSE WE ARE ALL SINNERS. The Apostle Paul says in Romans 3:23: "ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
In light of this, it does no good to compare ourselves to others. We cannot escape our failure to be righteous in our own strength. We can find righteousness only in Christ and only on the basis of His atoning sacrifice on the Cross.
Sin is mentioned hundreds of times in the Bible, starting with the "original" sin when Adam and Eve ate of the tree of knowledge. Often it seems as if sin is simply the violation of any of God's laws, including the Ten Commandments.
Paul, however, puts this in perspective in Romans 3:20, when he says, "Therefore no one will be declared righteous in His sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin."
"Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify [us] unto himself ..." (Titus 2:13-14)
God wanted us to recognize our sins. Even those who have not murdered or committed adultery will find themselves convicted of lying, or of worshipping false idols like wealth or power ahead of God.
"Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear," says Isaiah 59: 1-2. "But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear."
We must resist the temptation to act as if we are righteous, especially by leaning on our good works.
"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives" (1 John 1:8-10).
Note carefully the notation on the picture above - "Kepler Search Space;" right below this notation is a second notation - "3,000 light years;" in other words, it would take man 3,000 years traveling at the speed of light to traverse this tiny-looking bit of space. On that basis alone, one can see how trapped man is, and how impossible space travel really is - at least by mortal man.
The fact is, the short amount of time that each single person who has been in space - while damaging to those who have endured it, especially the Soviet Cosmonauts - has not been enough to cause death; but surely the several years that a voyage to Mars would take would be enough to kill anyone. Moreover, the effort to protect space crews from the devastating affect of radiation flares from the sun while on a trip to Mars have been rather pathetic - ranging from a clumsy lead-lined chamber to be carried by the space craft to which the space crew could retreat when radiation poison threatened them, to experiments with artificial electrical fields. So far, nothing has worked. At any rate, space travel - even on a relatively short run to Mars - would not at all resemble the space travel concocted by the authors of Star Trek and Star Wars.
Man: Dissolving into "nothingness" at the speed of light
IT SEEMS, THEN, THAT DESPITE ALL THE HEADY TALK OF SPACE TRAVEL IN SUCH FILMS AS STAR TREK AND STAR WARS, THE DREAM TO BE "STAR TRAVELERS" IS NOTHING MORE THAN THAT - A DREAM; A FANTASY, AND NOTHING MORE: MAN IS NOT ONLY ALONE, BUT IT SEEMS THAT HE HAS BEEN IMPRISONED ON THIS PLANET, at least until such time that he is "clothed" with a new body - a heavenly body - at the resurrection, and his imprisonment on this planet is ended.
NOTE: The body that man - at least those who embrace Christ as Saviour - will be "clothed with" at the resurrection will be similar to the one that Jesus possessed when He visited His disciples in the "upper room."
"Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you." (John 20:19)
Note carefully here how the Bible says that all entrances to the room were closed. The question arises then, Where did He come from? - it seems that He "materialized" out of nowhere. Yet He was "clothed with a human body" that could be touched and felt - and that is made apparent when He showed His disciples the wounds He received at His crucifixion and then took something to eat.
The passage continues:
"And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
"Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
"And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
"Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained." (John 20:20-23)
Thomas, however, who wasn't there at Christ's first appearance in the upper room, doubted:
An "angelic body" that is able to defy the tyranny of Einstein's formulation that energy equals mass times the speed of light squared.
"But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
"The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe." (John 20:24-25)
So Jesus came again in the same fashion He came the first time - he seemingly appeared out of nowhere with a body that, while it possessed mass and could be touched, was nonetheless able to be "transported" from place to place in the twinkling of an eye:
"And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
"Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
"And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
"Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed." (John 20:26-29)
These are the kind of bodies that angels possess - whether they still be loyal to God or not. These are bodies not limited to Einstein's formulation, energy equals mass times the speed of light squared." In other words, these bodies are not limited to the restraints imposed upon mortals by time and space - and yet they still possess mass. [We urge you to see Part 5 of Chapter IX of the NEW ANTIPAS PAPERS, "The Seven Trumpets: The Second Half of the Seventieth Week."]
If this is so - that is to say, that man AS A MORTAL BEING is alone in this universe, and no doubt it is - then the question that begs to be asked is this: What is it exactly that the UFO cults have been "running into?" From whom have so many thousands of people - indeed, millions of people - been receiving these communications?
The Bible gives a very somber and unsettling answer: The "SPIRTUAL HOSTS OF WICKEDNESS IN HEAVENLY PLACES!" (Eph. 6:12) These are not mortal beings; and more importantly, neither are they benign; they are extremely malignant (even venomous).
For one to appreciate what we are saying here, one must apprehend the title that the Bible gives to Satan: The "Prince of the Power of the Air" (Eph. 2:2). The word that is here translated "air" would be better rendered "heavens." This would seem to be the same as the heavenly places which the NASB, the NKJV and the KJV version render "high places" (Eph. 6:12) and which, as Paul indicates, swarm with the spiritual hosts of the wicked. And while God has forbidden these spirits to communicate with man and has placed a gulf (a "spiritual dimension," as it were) between them and us, they, nonetheless, break through from time to time - defying God - since they are not at present restrained by force.
NOTE: It is perhaps necessary at this point to address a common misapprehension: It is popularly believed by many Christians that the abode of Satan and his followers is in the depths of the earth. While this may indeed ultimately be the case, it most certainly is not now. In addition to his title the "Prince of the Power of the Air," the Bible also refers to him as the "Prince of this World" -and in doing so, it indicates that this title is not one that was usurped, but one that he holds legitimately and which belongs to him by right, together with great power and dignity - for how else does one explain the fact that the Lord Jesus Himself not only spoke of our great adversary by this title, but plainly recognized his delegated authority in that He did not dispute his right to the disposal of the kingdoms of this world and their glory (Luke 4:6-8).
Moreover, how else can one understand the passage in Jude wherein Michael, the Archangel of God, is seen rendering to Satan the respect due to one superior in rank, even though that authority was then held in the hands of one who had become so wicked:
"Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst (dared) not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee." (Jude 1:9)
In addition to all this, there is something more that we must apprehend: At present, Satan even has access to the throne room of God, and this is substantiated by Revelation 12:10 where Satan is seen accusing us "day and night" before the very throne of God. This is confirmed in the Book of Job:
"Now there was a day when the sons [angels] of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them." (Job 1:6) (cf. Job 2:1 and Rev. 12:10)
Thus, we see that Satan is not in the depths of the earth, but in the "heavenly places" - and not only is our great antagonist in heaven, but also his hosts - one third of the angels of heaven (Rev. 12:4). If it was not for the Son, who also appears continually at the throne as our great high priest (Heb. 8:1) with His own precious blood as an offering for our sin, we would have surely perished as a race long ago. From all this, we can easily comprehend that although Satan is a rebel, he has not as yet been deprived of his titles, his power, and - this is very important - his place in "the heavenly places;" and this is as true of the angels who joined him in his ancient rebellion as it is of Satan himself. He is still the great "High One on High" (Isa. 24:21). And so we at last get some idea as to what Paul meant when he said that our battle was not with "flesh and blood," but it was instead with "principalities," with "powers," with the "world rulers of this darkness," and with "spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places" (Eph. 6:12). [Again, we urge you to see Part 5 of Chapter IX of the NEW ANTIPAS PAPERS, "The Seven Trumpets: The Second Half of the Seventieth Week."]
Thus, the verses above lend a certain dreadful credibility to the assertions of the UFO cultists, for it cannot possibly be assumed that the sightings referred to above are of God's angels, but rather of Satan's. And make no mistake about it, these spiritual agencies thirst for the subjugation and utter degradation of the human race.
Angels having sexual intercourse with the "daughters of men."
"Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God [lit., "Elohim," meaning in this case, the angels that had joined themselves to Satan's rebellion] saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves [i.e., had sexual intercourse with] whomever they chose ... The Nephilim [lit., the "fallen ones," meaning the offspring of the sexual union between the daughters of men and the angels of Satan] were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God [angels] came into the daughters of men [i.e., had sexual intercourse with them], and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old [in Greek mythology and the mythology of countless other civilizations], men of renown ... Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth [as a result of man's intercourse with the angels of Satan], and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart WAS ONLY EVIL CONTINUALLY [and Pember is speaking most especially of sexual sin] ... And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. And the Lord said, 'I will blot out man whom I have made ... for I am sorry that I have made them'." (Genesis 6:1-2,4-7)
The offspring of angels and the "daughters of men:" the demi-gods of the ancient world - Achilles, Hector, Thor, etc.
"Now, in speaking of the sin of some of these, Jude (Jude 6) tells us that, despising the position of dignity and responsibility in which God had placed them, they voluntarily left their own home [or, disrobed themselves of the spiritual body proper to them as beings of heaven, and materialized for themselves an earth-body; for the word used here in the only other place in the New Testament means the heavenly body with which the believer longs to be clothed] in the ... [heavens], prompted by earthward desires [for the daughters of men], and began to exercise an unlawful influence over the human race [which led eventually to the great increase of wickedness - far beyond what is even known today]. And, perhaps, as a punishment, their [i.e. that special class of Satan's angels which involved themselves in this specific crime] return [to heaven] was prohibited."
Pember reiterates what he said earlier:
"The children of these unlawful connections before the flood were the renowned heroes of old ..."
And he goes on to say:
"The subsequent repetition of the crime doubtless gave rise to the countless legends of the Classics [of Greek mythology], as well as in the ancient literature of other languages, in which human families are traced to a half-divine origin."
The foundations of human society before the Flood were destroyed by the appearance of the fallen angels. The eruption of these beings upon the earth led to the total corruption of the human race - so much so that it was beyond remedy. The fallen angels had burst the bands that had separated them from humanity. The gulf or dimension that God had placed between men and angels had been bridged, and now these malignant beings poured into the earth like a torrent into an empty lake bed. Violence and bloodshed filled the earth. Slaughter and rampage were everywhere. And if man had been sullied before by the taint of sin, he descended now into a state of abject disgust and abhorrence a thousand times worse than his condition before the poisonous infestation of his world by these malicious beings.
NOTE: There appears to be but one other occurrence of this sin after the Flood: the assertion is made in Numbers 13:33 in reference to the sons of Anak, who are said to have been Nephilim (the word translated "giants" in the KJV in these verses is Nephilim). These were the Canaanites who so frightened ten of the twelve spies that Moses sent into Canaan after the Exodus to spy out the land; it seems to account for God's command that the whole race of the Canaanites should be extirpated or annihilated. The thought here is that the Canaanites should be removed much like a doctor would excise or amputate a cancerous leg from a man to preserve the rest of the body from the spread of the malignancy.
Now, listen to me very carefully here: Very obviously, man is once again bridging the gap between the "spirit world" and the "world of man;" THIS IS WHAT THE WORK AT SRI AND IN NUMEROUS OTHER INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING IN THE UNITED STATES IS ALL ABOUT; THIS IS WHAT PROJECT STARGATE, MK-ULTRA, AND DOZENS OF OTHER ON-GOING GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE PARANORMAL ARE ALL ABOUT: BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN THE "SPIRIT WORLD" AND THE "WORLD OF MAN."
NOTE: Again, one should understand in this connection that for these malignant beings to bridge the gap between themselves and man, they need the cooperation of man. They evidently cannot succeed in this endeavor without man's help. [Please see our articles, "The God-Men of the American New World Order System" and "Luciferic Christianity."]
To put it simply, the gulf that has so long separated man from the fallen angels [and has preserved him from the depths of sin to which his fathers fell before the Flood] is once again being bridged; the bands broken; and the fallen angels - like a flood that has burst its boundaries - are inundating the earth (and most especially the United States) once again as in the days of Noah. This then is the reason for the awful declaration:
"Babylon the great is fallen (i.e., the United States), is fallen [meaning it has fallen into the depths of utter depravity], AND IS BECOME THE HABITATION OF DEVILS, AND THE HOLD OF EVERY FOUL SPIRIT, AND A CAGE OF EVERY UNCLEAN AND HATEFUL BIRD [meaning evil spirit] ..." (Revelation 18:2)
This flood of evil spirits into the earth is originating in the environs of Babylon the Great, and it will grow in intensity until ALL of Babylon (i.e., the United States) is inundated. [Please see Chapter XII of the NEW ANTIPAS PAPERS, "The Beast of Revelation 17;" please also see our articles, "A Dreadful Nation; An Overflowing Scourge: The Rise of US Nuclear Superiority" and "Reducing Europe to the Status of Greece in the Days of Rome."]
This makes sense because the "bridging operation" (as it were) between the "spirit world" and the "world of man" is being conducted here - on American university campuses, at institutions such as SRI, in government-sponsored "PARANORMAL CULTS" and in CIA sponsored projects such as MK-Ultra, MK-Monarch, and dozens of other similar projects.
It is PRECISELY because America is going to be so thoroughly inundated by this flood of evil spirits, that the command by God to His people who still reside in the United States to COME OUT is sounded:
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Revelation 18:2, 3)
And so, once again I warn you, GET OUT while you still have the chance.
It's not without reason that the angel cries out:
"... THE DEVIL HAS COME DOWN TO YOU, HAVING GREAT WRATH, KNOWING THAT HE HAS ONLY A SHORT TIME."
God bless you!
