Jerusalem UFO - Fake or Demonic ?
« on: January 01, 2013, 08:33:23 AM »
Hi All,

I am not sure if anyone else has seen this before there was a UFO In 2011 a UFO has appeared a few feet above the Dome of Rocks (ruins of the temple) in Jerusalem [youtube links below] - how does the church interpret this event?
After all it can be argued that the Dome of Rocks sits on one of the most holiest pieces of land on earth.
Link are:

I now understand that this some dangerous stuff, I would like to only understand those few things and not dwell any further, its just that with media, pop-culture and the internet its impossible not to come across the subject of 'aliens'. Which I believe are not aliens but demons !.

I am interested in hearing if anyone else has seen these videos ?. Are they fake ie, made up by some people using editing software ? or are they real ?. Just curious to know.

I am wondering who that monk was apparently its from the Saying of the desert fathers, how monk was chosen to be the New Emperor of Constantinople because of his holyness, he rejected this at first until he had divine revelation so he continued, as he was waiting at the port for the ship to take him to Constantinople he did the sign of the cross obliviously praying to to God that this what God wants and the ship all of a sudden vanished into thin air and it was actually a demonic apparition.

They could simply have assumed it was an unknown type of thing, when it may be a police helicopter, Air Force plane, something like that.

I'm not sure about these particular videos, but Fr. Seraphim of Platina wrote a fair bit on the UFO phenomena being attributable to demons. Maybe you already know this? Jacques Vallee, the famous ufologist, came to the conclusion through his own investigations that UFOs are not extra-terrestrial in origin, but better fit into the traditional view of the demonic.
