Biblical David: Ray Beams and Extraterrestrials

For those of you who would like to know what King Daniel of the Hebrews, and Biblical fame, can tell us about future alien invasions, craft that are piloted by the “special ones”, that hover over the earth and use ray beams as weapons to fight similar craft, and the evil extraterrestrial ruler who will dominate us in the end times, today’s story is for you.

In the Old Testament biblical account, Daniel relates a dream (or perhaps a recovered memory such as those that abductees are said to experience) that he dates to the first year of the reign of Belshatztzar or Belshazzar (from the Akkadian Bel-sar-usur, meaning “Bel protect the King”), King of Babylon (given as Babel in the Book of Daniel).

Belshazzar was the son of Nabonidus, the last king of the Neo-Babylonian empire, and his second year of rule would have been about 553 or 554 BC, when he acted as governor for his father, who was visiting the oasis of Teima in the northwestern part of Saudia Arabia. In addition to the Biblical account, the most important sources for the time of Belshazzar are the Nabonidus Chronicle, the Cyrus Cylinder, and the Verse Account of Nabonidus—which was commissioned by the Persian conqueror Cyrus the Great. Although named as a King in the Book of Daniel, Belshazzar never actually became King, but rather ruled his father’s kingdom in his absence. So technically he was a temporary King.

If we examine the actual Masoretic Hebrew text (the authoritative Hebrew and Aramaic text of the 24 books of the Tanakh or Old Testament) for the Book of Daniel, in
Chapter 7 verse 13 we find:

I saw what came to pass,
by visions in the night,
and behold,
together with the clouds of the sky, like a son of man it was,
and then (it continued)
until the Ancient of Days arrived
and drew near in front of me.

Someone who resembled a human arrived from the clouds in the sky,
and remained until the Ancient of Days arrived and stood in front of Daniel.

I’ve re-translated the following verses from Daniel, but rather than give each word definition on its own line, I will simply provide you with the end results.

Daniel 7:9 :
I watched it come to pass
until which the throne seat was thrown high (or took off?)
And the Ancient of Days (this can also mean “the one from the ancient times”)
sat in his white, like snowy hair and clean wool, garment (space suit?)
His throne seat was ablaze in flames
and shined with light; a burning wheel.

Has anyone mentioned to you previously that the Hebrew word “Quph Resh Nun”, pronounced qeren, Strong’s Concordance number 7162 , which has traditionally been translated as “horn or horns” has other meanings that are very different? Yes, it has an equally acceptable meaning, when you wish to translate the Hebrew text, that is dissimilar to this traditional definition of “horns”.

Yes, the Hebrew biblical word qeren is also defined as “to shine as rays of light similar in shape to a horn”, which would indicate a focused ray of light, much like what we might expect from a modern-day flashlight or laser beam. And it has another alternate meaning, furnished to us by the scholars in their “Gesenius’ Hebrew and Chaldee Definition” of “used of flashes of lightning; just as the Arabian poets compare the first beams of the rising sun to horns, and call the sun itself a gazelle.”

So when we read Daniel 7:21, which features this word, it actually informs us that:

Daniel 7:21
And I saw these same rays of light
make war with the “special ones” [KJV says Angels, but literally it’s “special ones”]
and prevailed against them.

And it certainly makes more sense to find “rays of light” making war against the special ones”, and not “horns made war with angels”, since the text itself when translated from the original gives us exactly what I have above.

This begs the question of “who were these special ones, who sat in shining throne seats that looked like blazing wheels and shot out rays of light as a weapon?”

Actually horns of war are used by the early Hebrews, in advising or assembling the advances and retreats of troops in war, but they could hardly be said to defeat or prevail against a special one inside a glowing wheel.

And in the next verse we find that the Ancient of Days (or one from the ancient times) actually decided the ultimate result of the battle between the rays of light and the special ones in Daniel 7:22:

[The battle continued] … Until the Ancient of Days came, and judgement was given to the special ones of the sons of El (God), and over time the special ones possessed  the Kingdom.

So now we know that these special ones were somehow aligned with the Divine Council, the Elohim (God and the sons of God) that created the Heavens and the Earth in Genesis 1.

Two things that we might wish to note here: the rays of light, or horns of light, describing a focused beam or perhaps laser of light, was employed by the enemies of the special ones, who in this battle represent the adversaries (Satan types if you will) of El, the Most High God and ruler of the Divine Council that Yahweh was a member of. In fact, later in the text we learn that Yahweh was in fact El, and that El was one of many names he had.

But we are not done yet.
In Daniel 7:8, Daniel tells us that inside of these focused rays of light he saw eyes like the eyes of a man, and also a mouth speaking of great things, which seems to further enforce our “rays of light” definition over that of the traditional meaning of “horns of an animal.” A pair of human-appearing eyes and a mouth speaking out from the rays of light makes more sense in this verse. But it also confirms that even these adversaries of the special ones were human appearing for the most part. Albeit human-looking beings inside of an advanced craft capable of lifting off into the sky and employing focused beams of light as weapons. Which somehow seems very technologically advanced for King David’s time, right?

And we are able to uncover yet additional clues from another vision that Daniel had, or perhaps another abduction memory that finally surfaced over time.

“Then I lifted up mine eyes, and watched,
and, behold, there stood before the river
a ram which had [two] focused rays of light:
and the [two] rays [were] high;
but one [was] higher than the other,
and the higher one came up last.”

A ram-shaped craft with two ray beam weapons on it, one on top of the other, and the lower beam started shining before the higher one.

Daniel 8:4
I saw the ram pushing westward,
and northward, and southward;
so that no beasts might stand before him,
neither [was there any] that could deliver out of his hand;
but he did according to his will,
and became great.

So this ram-shaped craft with ray beams top and bottom, began to go into a type of “search and destroy” pattern, and none of the opponents could beat it, but instead ended up submitting to the ram-craft, and it became the champion.

Daniel 8:5
And as I was considering this, behold,
a goat shaped craft came up from the west,
seeming to cover the entire face of the ground,
and touched not the ground,
and the goat had a notable ray beam between his eyes.

Well, out of the west comes something like a mother ship – so big it seemed to cover the entire Earth, and it hovered, not touching the ground,  and it had a sizeable ray beam between the front part of the craft.

The tension is mounting.

Daniel 8:6
And he came to the ram that had [two] ray beams,
which I had seen standing {hovering] before the river,
and ran unto him in the fury of his power.

Well now we have a battle on our hands. The goat-shaped craft with one huge ray beam finds the ram-shaped craft hovering, and runs up to it at full speed, ready to hit him with the full power of his beam weapon.

Daniel 8:7
And I saw him come close unto the ram,
and he was moved with anger against him,
and smote the ram,
and broke his two ray beam weapons:
and there was no power in the ram to stand before him,
but he cast him down to the ground,
and stamped upon him:
and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.

The goat-shaped mother ship was very angry, and smote the ram-craft, breaking his ray beam weapons in the process. The ram-shaped craft could not resist the onslaught, and was cast to the ground [which by the way presupposes that the ram craft was hovering over the ground] and
the goat-shaped mother ship stomped him. And there was no other craft around to help the ram-shaped craft survive this assault.

Daniel 8:16
And I heard a man’s [human being’s] voice
between [the banks of] the Ulai, a river in Elam,
which called, and said,
Gabriel, make this [David] to understand the vision.

We now have the added detail of a location, near the river Ulai in Elam,  and it would be interesting to see if any of the parts from the downed and stomped ram-shaped craft still exist.  Perhaps the ray-beam weapons still exist?

Daniel 8:17 F
So he [the special one named Gabriel] came near where I stood:
and when he came, I was afraid, [reasonable reaction]
and fell upon my face:
but he said unto me,
Understand, O son of man:
for at the time of the end [shall be] the vision.

Gabriel, one of the Divine Council is telling him, in Hebrew apparently, that there is no reason for him to be afraid, that what he saw will actually happen  in the end times; that it was a precognition, or some type of implanted
vision of future events, when the alien visitors battle for the Earth.

Daniel 8:18
Now as he was arranging the words,
thought words, with me,
I was in a deep sleep [literally stunned, astounded]
with my face toward the ground:
but he touched [literally: to reach unto] me,
and placed me upright.

This is a direct confirmation of the reports by our modern abductees, who report that the aliens are able to arrange thought words in your mind,  and to stun you into a state of paralysis.  Along with their ability to reach into a person
and place them in the positions that they desire. Very clear to me, especially when we consider how old the Book of Daniel is.

Daniel 8:19
And he said,
Behold, I will make thee know
what shall be in the last,
the end time of the abominations:
in regard to the appointed time,
the end of days.

That seems fairly clear to me, but I should expand upon this “abominations” term, which is also translated as “indignation”. The meanings that attach to this term include: angry, indignation, rage, a thing that causes disgust or hatred, and anger or annoyance provoked by what is perceived as unfair treatment. Yes the full and final invasion of Planet Earth and the enslavement or murder of its inhabitants, would generally be perceived as being unfair treatment by these more technologically advanced special ones from the stars. And the idea that a time has already been appointed seems like some cosmic shoe that is poised in the air, ready to drop on our heads at any time. Lovely.

And it gets better.

Daniel 8:23
And in the End time
the time of their future dominion,
when the rebellion is complete,
A ruler of fierce appearance,
yet cunning in the dark speech,
shall rise up.

Now it’s beginning to sound like something from the Lord of the Ring’s; with the human rebellion of their domination finished, a fierce-looking ruler, who is wise in the ways of “dark speech”, whatever that might be, shall arise.

And what type of dark-speech ruler will this be?

Daniel 8:24
And his power shall be mighty,
but not by his own power:
and he shall destroy wonderfully,
and shall prosper, and practice,
and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

So he obtains his power from outside, perhaps from his magical abilities?
And he practices this, and destroys wonderfully (really, it’s just amazing how wonderfully evil his destructive powers are), and he prospers after the destroys the last of the remaining religious folks.

Daniel 8:25
And through his policy also he shall cause deceit and treachery to prosper
by his hand; and he shall magnify in his heart,
and by peace shall destroy many:
he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes;
but he shall be broken without hand.

So this new evil ruler will use deceit to encourage the humans to sell each other out for profit, and he will magnify his benevolence, and create a fake peace that will destroy many, and even the Prince of princes will fall to him.

And another item of note here, is that we learn from one of the angels that spoke to Daniel, named here as “Gabriel”, that these events were to happen in the “far future”, or perhaps in our own time, since we are now more than twenty five hundred years past the time of Daniel.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t recall these verses being taught in my Sunday school classes, nor in any sermons from the pulpit. Sometimes we just have to examine the Biblical text in its original form to dig out all of the juicy bits. This story, when I was first translating it, ringed so true to life, and so much like what our own alien abductees are telling us, that I felt moved to share it with you.
