The summer hangs heavily over the corn field as a boy reluctantly heads out into it, in the direction of a Scarecrow, that seems to  be drooping.
His fathers voice follows him through the dry stalks and leaping grasshoppers, his mind elsewhere as he nears it, only thirty or forty yards away.
It’s then that he looks up and notices an odd movement. Something about the figure supporting itself, more perched  than tied to the pole is just not right, and then the leathery rag clad figure looks up at him, makes eye contact from beneath its weathered hat.
As fast as a little boys feet allow he turns and sprints, crashing through the forest of corn stalks, too short for his cottony blond hair to be seen above them, even among them.  At the same time, with its feet against the  scarecrows pole, the Thing projects itself out into the air. It’s wings unfurling and flapping once in the same, quick motion.
The father and older brother look up from the greasy motor, tools in hand, at the sound of the boys cries, clearly able to see the large dark form flying above and still behind the child, who is just gaining hope of reaching them, hearing their voices near as he is snatched from within the rows like a rabbit in the claws of a hawk or owl.
A powerful pump of the wings and  the thing climbs.  The boys feet beating for the briefest moment the tops of the tassel crowned field, before he passes hopelessly over the shocked faces of his family, a father and brother who can do nothing but stand wide eyed with gaping mouths .    The almost inarticulate sound of frustrated rage drowning out the last of the faint , frantic wails, as both airborne figures disappear over the large surrounding forest  into the clouds.  This is a very close, if not identical to first scenes of a horror movie.  There are two that  feature very frightening looking humanoid figures with the power of flight. Just spooky entertainment, right?  Just part of the cinematic progression of horror?
I’m not going to try to convince you that they exist. Yours and my personal beliefs need not meet in agreement here, but what I do intend , is to show you, the reasons others do believe in them to this very day.
 

New International Version (©1984)
For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.

New Living Translation (©2007)
for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see–such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him.

English Standard Version (©2001)
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

New American Standard Bible (©1995)
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities– all things have been created through Him and for Him.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

International Standard Version (©2008)
For by him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether they are kings, lords, rulers, or powers. All things have been created through him and for him:

The Scriptures, in their various forms, all  make clear that there is not only a spiritual realm, the one the prophet Samuel was called  from by the Witch of Endor, under the command of King Saul. They state clearly that there is  not only this spiritual realm, but a place around us of “THINGS ,” invisible as well.  Angels, at times, might be present, but invisible, right?  The key word in these sentences is THINGS.

(Things -8. An object or entity that is not or cannot be named specifically:)

Many  religious records of  modern and ancient peoples describe beings of the air. Some  suggest they are winged. Others say they having the power of invisibility .

Often these creatures  present themselves in a material fashion ,even human in appearance, while others wish not to be seen.  But, there is a Biblical account that  backs this premise  in Numbers 22:1-35 .  Balaam, abuses his Donkey because it repeatedly hesitates to proceed on the  path. This  is not because of  stubbornness, but because it sees an Angel- with a sword laying in wait alongside the trail, Invisible to Balaam.  The donkey is  a simple creature, yet still it  is aware and able to discern  the Angels intentions, well enough that  it seeks to protect its master and probably itself from uneccessary harm as well.

There are more cases where powerful beings walk among men, advising and warning them of impending danger and even cataclysm  The two who come to the aid of Lot and his family, before the death and destruction in Sodom and Gomorrah.   Those that took Ezekiel into their, craft one that approached from the sky, of not flying men, but beings in a machine. But, not all of the beings  mentioned through history were angels, though Angels  appear in many forms and are members of different classes, within their own species.            

Its the confusion caused by the additions of machines  that make this phenomena  more difficult to interpret. There is little doubt that in the tales of India, The Vimanas were not spiritual material craft of great power. Likewise again, Ezekiel’s ride was not taken on angels wings, but within a structure; a moving, floating, traveling structure.

Yet there is a rich history in in tales and myths of winged beings. In previous articles, we have shown you figures or figure like objects high in the sky, some moving by their own power, some being drawn up to a higher location sometimes among the clouds.

Here is a report  from our times;

Four Sliver City, New Mexico , children playing in a yard at twilight of a summer day in 1938 witnessed a bizarre sight. As one of the observers recalled in 1980: We saw him. He was dressed all in gray and he even seemed gray; he was drifting or floating at tree-top level> The thing I remember the most about him was that he seemed to be wearing a belt which was wide and had points sticking out of it. He also seemed to be wearing a cap (a la Flash Gordan).

He drifted across the sky above us and we all stood and stared, speechless. It did not occur to us to question this phenomena; as children we accepted it…

About fifteen years ago I was telling my husband about it. When I did, I questioned myself- perhaps I had had a dream. But just in case, I called my brother. By now I was about thirty-five and he about thirty-two. I prefaced my conversation by telling him that I had a strange story to tell and that perhaps it had all been a dream, but that I thought that in about 1938 I had seen a man fly over heads. He stopped me and said “It wasn’t a dream”. He went on to describe everything as I have described it here, including the belt and the cap. (From the Jerome Clark book Unexplained)

  We have not just photographed, but seen some of these type figures and the questions for us are not how many are there or their accurate identification. The questions are, if they are Angelic, whose camp do they represent?

Why are they here? What is their purpose? Most of us remember that Angels were sent to bring plagues, to destroy whole cities, and punish individuals.  What purpose  would they have in the skies over a unimportant place like Butler unless something strange was going to happen?

Something  important was here, possibly not on the surface. Maybe they guard weak walls in the dimensions. There has been talk here for a long time about strange portals, energy lines and odd sightings.

Maybe  God is watching all of us in a state of preparedness, watching us closer than we think.  But then, again, it may not be angels and that leads to a whole different set of concerns. At any rate we need to give this serious consideration.

We are told by a source that millions if not billions rely on as a spiritual guide as a way to stay in touch with the most important being who’s ever lived; the life of a human, only to complete his arrangement with God, his father in a most terrible way.

Many don’t believe the Bible but for those of you that do,I suggest you take articles of this kind and check them for biblical authenticity. We  are not perfect,but try to make sure what we’ve told you is correct.   Then, we have a different situation from Lori and I  telling you our opinions about a few photos and an experience.  It is us saying “hey take a look at this, pictures of wild stuff”.

At that point you should be hesitant in your believe.  You should wonder.  But if you and I are both Christians and we believe the story of the price paid for the book that has become a manual for many of our lives, you believe all of it. Then it is no longer a case of our  needing to convince you. We are only the messengers.

There is no struggle left to convert you.  You either believe the word or you don’t. You understand we can’t choose the portions we want and exclude the rest to make us more comfortable with our lives.  We either believe or we don’t, and that is not a hard sell point here that will be repeated,. That, as it should be, is between you and God.

One story is that of a  young Mexican Police Officer,  who claimed to see a flying humanoid that has been labeled a Witch. Another one is of bat winged figures, such as the one who flew over a guard post  gate at a U.S.Military base in Vietnam.  And still another similar event took place just outside the gate of another base in Japan.

The scripture in the picture to the right is a reminder that Satan and his servants   are not secluded creatures off in some hidden place, grinding their axe against both God and Man.
But, as the verse states, are very much among us. These Scriptures aren’t references to little imp like creatures, but the Devil himself.
There was a song my cousins, up in Atchison, Kansas, taught me when we were little.
“One ,two,three, the Devils after me,
Four , Five, Six he’s always throwing bricks, Seven Eight, Nine, he misses every timecause he’s afraid of  the word of the Lord.”
If he is afraid  he hasn’t shown it very well through the ages.Satan seems to always be handy at the time of a great trial;  Christs 40 days and 40 nights in the desert,  Job’s sudden loss of  his wealth, family and his  health. Satan seemed, at times an inspector, tester, and may have relished the job for all we know.   A chance to break the others feelings of satisfaction in their relationship with the Lord, to bring them to his level, to join him in his spirit of rebellion and contention.  A portion of  our personal discernment  must be theory and conjecture.  How close we come to the truth relies largely on the condition of our heart.  The process we go through to experience “real” faith is its own the greatest test.   People who say I’ve lost my faith,haven’t. The problem is, no idea worth challenging has ever been left alone. This works in our favor in the flat world philosophy and others, but in some ways our thinking becomes clouded by possibility.
You can ask me if I truly believe that what we’ve found and others account of beings, with the ability to fly, are creatures beyond our ken? I have to answer with the word I use often “POSSIBLY”.   We have to make peace with that word, make it not the outside chance we rue, but the lifeline that keeps our reason intact.      POSSIBILITY-(modifying a clause or predicate) Indicates that the proposition may be true (is not certainly false) regardless of any facts or circumstances known to, stated by or implied by the speaker.
We hope we haven’t made anyone uncomfortable. I’m not a priest and this definitely hasn’t been a sermon, but we all have our own beliefs , and things in the Heavens above us tend to draw on that sort of thinking.  I’d like to say, this has been just an interesting  subject to give a few hours of thought to, that there is nothing to be concerned over.
I don’t want to say things that will test peoples ability to accept and endorse the standings  of  my sanity, but we promised one another that in the beginning of this study, neither of us would cop out, neither of us would, while gathering information, steer ourselves and our readers away from certain truths because we just don’t know the way to present them without sounding  loony.
TRY THIS!!  Imagine, for just a moment, you live in Chaldea, one of the oldest civilizations  in history. You dress in rough, home spun, furs when the temperature is appropriate. Copper is your metal of choice, which will eventually be added to tin, and the bronze age will begin. But that’s a ways off still. You use more oxen than horses and no matter what anyone says, there were still giants in the earth.  The History of  people of your kind before you and yours wouldn’t fill a loose leaf note book, (the thin ones).
None the less you and your people live in an age of marvels, not those of technology but those inherent in amazing beings, men of renowned. A time when it’s written that Gods walked beside men.    Your working on a wagon wheel in the hot sun, with simple tools, and someone comes to your village to tell of the miraculous event in the bordering towns. These are superhuman acts or unexplainable healing, the sightings of things thought long dead.
Turning to listen, do you mock them, or roll your eyes and return to your work,? No, you live in age where these events  are commonplace.
Look across the web.  Search out these subjects.  There will always be charlatans, but there is a body of news about strange events on our planet hard to ignore.   How do you know that you don’t live in a similar age to that of the Chaldean, an age of wonders?
