6.19 – ALIEN ENCOUNTERS (8.15.14)

VISIONS [20c]

Rome. October 27, 312 AD. Just north of the city, the emperor Constantine leads his troops toward the Milvian Bridge and a decisive battle with Maxentius to reclaim his throne. At stake, is control over the western part of the vast Roman Empire. According to an account from the historian Eusebius, on the eve of the battle, Constantine looks up into the sky and sees what he believes is a divine vision.

“Constantine and his followers saw in the sky – what their chroniclers say was – a huge, white fiery cross. Now, his followers didn’t know what to make of this, but Constantine decided that this was the Christian cross.”

Avalon in the New World),

“Constantine feels, after viewing this extraordinary sign from the heavens, this lighted cross in the sky, that he will go forth the next day and he will conquer the Roman Empire, and this is exactly what he does. This vision becomes one of the crucial turning points in human history.”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

After winning the brutal battle of Milvian Bridge, Constantine consolidates his power and begins a campaign of religious tolerance across the empire, and he himself converts to Christianity. But what exactly did Constantine see in the sky that ended up changing the course of Western civilization? Was it a divine vision or something else?

“Don’t we all see crosses up in the sky when we look at planes? Because you have lights on the sides and at the front. And if you have a little bit of light shining on it, sometimes they look like crosses.  is it possible that this was absolutely no Christian symbol at all, but that it was adapted over time after something that was witnessed in the sky?”

Is it possible that extraterrestrials were responsible for Constantine’s vision? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say one compelling piece of evidence that aliens have tried to manipulate mankind through religious visions still exists today.

Mexico City. December 1531. According to an account called the Nican Mopohua, published in the Aztec language of Nahuatl, a peasant named Juan Diego was walking in the countryside when he heard a beautiful voice singing on the other side of a hill. Diego climbed the hill and saw an angelic vision a woman in white garments that shone like the sun.

“She said to him, “Juan Diego, I am the Virgin Mary, and I’m asking you to build a sanctuary for me here on this hill.” Well, Juan Diego fell to his knees in awe, and he said, ‘Great lady, I will do as you desire.’”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

But according to the story, Juan Diego couldn’t convince the local bishop that he had actually seen the Virgin Mary, so he went back to the hill, where he again saw the vision.

“He says, “Lady, please give me a sign, because nobody believes me when I tell them that I have seen you.” And she says, “Juan Diego, take off your cloak.” And he does, he takes off his cloak, and she fills his cloak with roses.”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

“He took the roses to the bishop, and the bishop fell down on his knees, because it wasn’t the roses as to why he believed the story from Diego, but inside the tilma was a painting of the Virgin Mother. And the bishop believed, and they built the church on that hill.”

Pastor Brett Peterson (President, Coastland Univ.)

This cloak still exists today, and despite its frail fabric, it has reportedly remained in pristine condition despite the cruel ravages of time.

“Right now, you can go to the church and see the tilma hanging there. And it has not degraded over the 400-plus years that they’ve had it. It’s been through a fire, it’s been through an explosion, where purportedly an iron cross was twisted from the explosion, but the tilma right next to the cross was still fine.”

Pastor Brett Peterson (President, Coastland Univ.)

Could this sacred image on the cloak, really be evidence of a visitation by the Virgin Mary? Or might it have a different, otherworldly explanation? In addition to the tilma inexplicably enduring for hundreds of years, those who have studied it have found other unexplainable qualities.

“Most bizarre of all are the eyes of the image. Approximately seven to eight millimeters wide, what we see inside those eyes is a highly enigmatic mystery, because it appears that there are characters in the eyes, the faces of the people who were there at the time that the tilma was unveiled by Our Lady of Guadalupe in 1531.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

But if Our Lady of Guadalupe really does have otherworldly origins, did it come from a heavenly realm or somewhere else? Not only do Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe Juan Diego’s vision was an extraterrestrial encounter, but even some members of the church claim that it was something other than a religious experience.

“Our Lady of Guadalupe is definitely a heavenly visitor. In my opinion, though, what her story said disagrees with what the Bible says. In fact, she said she would protect the people that worship at the church. What that does is really deify Mary when the Bible is very clear that only God can protect those that serve him. And so any otherworldly being that demands worship or respect, it cannot be an angel from God.”

Pastor Brett Peterson (President, Coastland Univ.)

“Juan Diego may have witnessed not just an apparition but an actual live extraterrestrial appearing through some sort of advanced technology whose mission was to impart spiritual faith and a thirst for the divine.”

  – David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

Could it be that some of history’s most significant religious visions have actually been produced by alien beings carrying out a secret mission? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes and believe further proof that extraterrestrials have been guiding our future can be found in the story of a mysterious magician that may have helped propel humanity into the modern age.
