Orion The Planet Where The Gods Come From – Aliens In the Bible?
“Orion, the planet where the gods come from!” That’s the message Ben heard while driving one day. It was a message from his inner voice which sounded almost audible.
“What!” He exclaimed. This was indeed alien to Ben. He was a Christian. Though he had recently embarked on a journey which resulted in him doing a spiritual 180. As far as Ben knew God, not the gods, came from heaven not some planet in our constellation.
Unperturbed by his skepticism and absolute shock the voice repeated, “Orion the planet where the gods come from.”
Someone, ones, was obviously trying to get a message to him. Or maybe, it was just his mind playing tricks on him. Ben wrestled with this new ‘information‘ for quite some time. Of course he could not share it with anyone lest they think he had lost his mind.
The Search For Orion Begins
He then began his frantic search, in an attempt to discover if the information provided could be verified. For a long time there was nothing.
Eventually he did uncover some information, but nothing that remotely resembled any kind of evidence that God, or gods, anyone, or anything came from there to earth.
After many months of intense searching, he encountered what appeared to be some evidence of alien visitors. But they are from Orion’s sister Sirius, not Orion.
Meet The Dogons
The Dogon’s of Mali, West Africa have a interesting story. They claim to be the priests of Ancient Egypt (the keepers of the secrets/mysteries). They left Egypt when the invasion of Africa began and migrated to Mali.
Long before the recent development of a telescope powerful enough to view it, the Dogons spoke about the star Sirius B, which they claim orbits Sirius A. This they did for a thousand plus years. Scientist rubbished it. Why? They could not see it.
How did they get this information? Well, the Dogons claim that an amphibious race of people called the Nommos, came to earth and shared that information with them.
Evidence In The Bible
Ben also, now that there was perhaps some evidence of alien contact, began to search the bible. In the first chapter of the book of Genesis he discovers that God (Elohim) said: “let us make man in our own image”.
Elohim is a plural noun. Now Ben was aware that in Hebrew the plural form is also used for words like water and sky. So that is not necessarily evidence that Elohim means more than one.
But what is strikingly strange, he mused, is that God was speaking to at least one other person. He said ‘let us’, not let me. Also he spoke about man being made in ‘our image’, not his. Was he speaking to angels? No. Ben an ardent student of the bible was fully aware that no where in the bible are angels ever described as being in ‘the image of God’.
The Sons of God
Ben also became aware of a strange passage in Genesis 6:
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Here he notices that almost every time the Old Testament uses the phrase ‘sons of God’, it employs the Hebrew word Elohim. So the text actually says, ‘sons of Elohim’ or ‘sons of the Elohim’. In English that would be, ‘sons of the counsel’. The same word used in the Genesis creation narrative. So he began to ask the following questions:
- Who are the Elohims?
- Are they aliens who procreated with humans, thereby creating these giants?
- Where did they come from?
The Hebrew word for the ‘giants’, the offspring of the ‘sons of God’ and the daughters of men, is Nephilim. Now, Ben is stunned when he comes upon Numbers 13:33. Why? Because according to Genesis, only Noah and his family survived the flood. Yet, the same giants who were there before the flood, are once again present when Moses sends the spies to spy out the land of Canaan. It reads:
And there we saw the giants (Nephilim), the sons of Anak, which come of the giants (Nephilim): and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
- Could this be the missing link that Ben is searching for?
- How could the Nephilim survive the flood when they were not in the ark?
- Is it possible that the Elohim are from the constellation of Orion – the ‘planet’ where the gods come from?
For Ben the search continues. In fact it has only just begun.
