UFOs and Flying Saucers: Chariots of the Gods or Illusions and Inventions of Imposters?
“1 The men took me on to the fifth heaven and placed me, and there I saw many and countless soldiers, called Grigori, of human appearance, and their size (was) greater than that of great giants and their faces withered, and the silence of their mouths perpetual, and there was no service on the fifth heaven, and I said to the men who were with me:
2 Wherefore are these very withered and their faces melancholy, and their mouths silent, and (wherefore) is there no service on this heaven?
3 And they said to me: These are the Grigori, who with their prince Satanail (Satan) rejected the Lord of light, and after them are those who are held in great darkness on the second heaven, and three of them went down on to earth from the Lord’s throne, to the place Ermon, and broke through their vows on the shoulder of the hill Ermon and saw the daughters of men how good they are, and took to themselves wives, and befouled the earth with their deeds, who in all times of their age made lawlessness and mixing, and giants are born and marvelous big men and great enmity.
4 And therefore God judged them with great judgment, and they weep for their brethren and they will be punished on the Lord’s great day.
5 And I said to the Grigori: I saw your brethren and their works, and their great torments, and I prayed for them, but the Lord has condemned them (to be) under earth till (the existing) heaven and earth shall end forever.” 2 Enoch 18:1-5
There is life in space! This is unequivocal truth. The question is not whether there is life in space but rather, what type of life exists in the heavens. As we have already covered in this study, there are three kinds of life which exist in the universe- celestial, terrestrial and extra-terrestrial. Celestial life was created in the heavens and is supposed to dwell there and restrict its interaction to that realm. Terrestrial is what has been born on the earth and has its source of origin from God. Extra-terrestrial has been born on the earth but not of natural origins, not created by God or according to His will. Rather, these are aberrations produced from unnatural intermingling between celestial beings or those created by them (hybrids) with terrestrial, creating aberrant and many times monstrous forms of life of which the Living God had nothing to do with, does not sanction, has strictly forbidden and has reserved only for eternal judgment.
The above cited scripture is an example of both truths, that there is life in space and that God has punished the perpetrators of the heinous act of celestial/terrestrial interbreeding. He has confined some of these celestial criminals to imprisonment in the very heavens that they were formerly free therein to traffic. As we have established, the heavens are teeming with celestial life. Both obedient, righteous agents in God’s service and those whom have revolted and are either, confined there or still free to roam and operate within a limited sphere of influence and territory.
“1 And for all the heavenly troops I imaged the image and essence of fire, and my eye looked at the very hard, firm rock, and from the gleam of my eye the lightning received its wonderful nature, (which) is both fire in water and water in fire, and one does not put out the other, nor does the one dry up the other, therefore the lightning is brighter than the sun, softer than water and firmer than hard rock.
2 And from the rock I cut off a great fire, and from the fire I created the orders of the incorporeal ten troops of angels, and their weapons are fiery and their raiment a burning flame, and I commanded that each one should stand in his order.
3 And one from out the order of angels, having turned away with the order that was under him, conceived an impossible thought, to place his throne higher than the clouds above the earth, that he might become equal in rank to my power.
4 And I threw him out from the height with his angels, and he was flying in the air continuously above the bottomless.” 2 Enoch Chapter 29: 1-4
“2 In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God].” Ephesians 2:2 Amplified
In our analysis of Angels, we proved from scripture that they were created by God in the heavens of the spirit and this is their appointed abode. They are only to penetrate the natural dimension for a mission authored by God and to remain in submission to Him. We also discovered that there were two rebellions, one in Heaven and one on earth. Satanail and the Angelic forces under his charge (1/3 of the Angelic population) staged a revolution and tried to overthrow God Himself and usurp the very government of the universe. We see from the above scriptures the result of this failed attempt. He was thrown down! But, notice where he landed “flying in the air continuously” and the Apostle Paul refers to him as the “prince of the power of the air”.
This is clearly referring to the atmosphere above the earth. He has access to the earth and in fact, wields his influence greatly upon it and possesses much authority over it as portrayed in the temptation of Christ. He proudly offered Christ rule over the kingdoms of the earth if He would bow down to him and worship him. He said these were his and he had the authority to give it into His charge. The Lord did not refute this for, He knew due to man’s transgression, this would be the case until He would redeem both mankind and the earth through His sacrifice and resurrection. Satan and his rebellious forces are still free to traffic the heavens (space) and earth until the final judgment when they will join their brothers who have already been imprisoned in the expanse, under the earth and in the abyss under the sea.
“6 Now there was a day when the sons (the angels) of God came to present themselves before the Lord and Satan (the adversary and accuser) also came among them.
7 And the Lord said to Satan, From where did you come? Then Satan answered the Lord, From going to and fro on the earth and from walking up and down on it.” Job 1:6-7 Amplified
Satan and his followers were expelled from the presence of God in the loftiest heavens and relegated to the lower ones and the earth beneath them. Therefore, scripture speaks of the evil angels’ perpetual influence in the atmosphere (air). This is speaking not only, of the atmosphere directly above the earth (sky) but also, the immediate heavens outside of the earth’s stratosphere (space). The obvious question then arises: why don’t we see them? Well, as we have established, celestial beings were born in the spirit realm and abide in the spiritual realm. This realm occupies other dimensions not visible to our human eyes and not perceivable to our natural senses. These dimensions can occupy the same space outside of what we understand to be time, housing an infinite amount of spiritual life and activity yet, not perceivable to our natural senses. This realm and its occupants can however, choose to penetrate that invisible barrier (star gates, portals) when they wish and appear in the time and space continuum for limited intervals of what we perceive as time.
Thus, we can travel light years and still not encounter this life! The irony being, that we never need penetrate the stratosphere at all and are just as likely to occupy the same space with these beings on earth, without our knowledge, simply, because they are occupying another dimension which is spiritual and therefore, invisible to us. Yet, they do make these appearances and we have experienced them. We are just hindered in our understanding of them because we fail to grasp this concept-the separation of dimensions between spiritual and natural. So, we try to analyze, comprehend and even interact with these invaders of time and space through natural, technological and scientific means. They laugh, as we miss the mark in trying to attain something which exists and operates in the spiritual realm by mere, natural means and methods. The spiritualists, those penetrating the spiritual realm through occult magic and psychic exercises are closer to reaching these alien life forms than all NASA type attempts. For, they understand that they must spiritually enter another dimension which is spiritual and not material in nature.
Now, returning to our question of whether or not there exists alien life in space, on other planets or in other galaxies. Man has been convinced that he must develop the technology to be able to travel farther in hopes of running into these other life forms. His misunderstanding lies in the direction and connection. He endeavors to reach out to and accomplish this contact by travelling in the natural world vertically, when this can only be achieved traveling in the spiritual realm, horizontally. Therefore, are there other humanoid life forms within the universe that inhabit planets in a material world such as ours, on physical planets? No, there are not! However, the cosmos is teeming with spiritual life in subsequent dimensions and the spiritual lords of this sphere enter the material world and even, initiate contact at will and according to their agenda.
Thus enters the phenomenon of UFOs! If one takes into account what we have just spoken about concerning the spiritual world and how it works, that the occupants and all their spiritually tangible elements are not bound by natural law, then a lot of the unexplainable becomes explainable. For instance, those who have witnessed these unidentified flying objects say that they suddenly appear, not appearing to have descended in a vertical or horizontal traveling pattern (entry through a portal?). They appear to vanish in the same manner, defying all natural laws-time, space, gravity, dimension and speed. Are these
material vehicles as we know them or are they spiritual mechanisms or even beings which cannot be comprehended, captured or properly evaluated according to natural law.
The spiritual world has substance! It is just another type of substance, as we examined in our section on resurrected bodies. These chariots of the gods have form and substance and can be made visible to the natural eye when willed by our Angelic astronauts but their substance is of another origin and consistency engineered in the spirit realm. Do we have a scriptural precedent for such celestial vehicles and beings penetrating the material world and allowing them to be viewed and even interacting with humanity? I will offer just a couple of references here that more than confirm this supposition.
“11 As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind. 12 Elisha saw this and cried out, “My father! My father! The chariots and horsemen of Israel!” And Elisha saw him no more. Then he took hold of his garment and tore it in two.” 2 Kings 2:11 NIV
“27 And at that time the sons of men were with Enoch, and Enoch was speaking to them, and they lifted up their eyes and the likeness of a great horse descended from heaven, and the horse paced in the air;
28 And they told Enoch what they had seen, and Enoch said to them, On my account does this horse descend upon earth; the time is come when I must go from you and I shall no more be seen by you.
29 And the horse descended at that time and stood before Enoch, and all the sons of men that were with Enoch saw him.
36 And when the kings returned they caused a census to be taken, in order to know the number of remaining men that went with Enoch; and it was upon the seventh day that Enoch ascended into heaven in a whirlwind, with horses and chariots of fire.” Jasher 3:27-29, 36
“13“Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.”
14Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city.
15When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.
16“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
17And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:1317 NIV
The above cited accounts present invasion of the natural world by spiritual forces and their supernatural transportation and weaponry from the holy side of the spectrum for Godly deliverance and objectives. As we stated in our section on Angels, God created them with this supernatural equipment and commissions them periodically, to intervene in earthly affairs according to His righteous will and agenda.
“2 And from the rock I cut off a great fire, and from the fire I created the orders of the incorporeal ten troops of angels, and their weapons are fiery and their raiment a burning flame and I commanded that each one should stand in his order.” 2 Enoch 29:2
We also understand that Satan and all fallen angels were included in this initial creation of the “incorporeal forces and weapons”. For, the next verse quoted earlier in this chapter reveals Satanail’s defection and revolution with the angels under his charge and their subsequent, defeat and expulsion from the righteous ranks to infamy in the now polluted atmosphere. So, it only stands to reason that when these beings were cast down they plummeted with their weaponry and various modes of spiritual transport. Logic would dictate equally, that they would not have launched a full scale blitzkrieg on the Throne of God absent their most powerful and sophisticated arsenals of weaponry! There is no account recorded in scripture giving us the slightest impression that Heaven confiscated any of this before, during or after the “battle before the ages”. With this as a premise, Paul’s admonition in Ephesians 6 rings out even louder when referring to spiritual weapons in regard to battling spiritual forces in high places.
I strongly believe, that the fallen celestials are still in possession of most of their war apparatus and are inclined to use it in their last day’s deception and final battle above earth with Michael and the Archangels (Revelation 12). Also, that these villainous vehicles are being implemented and are playing a major role in “the great delusion” which God sends on an apostate creation who has rejected His truth and salvation and embraced the “Big Lie” of the Antichrist (See 2 Thessalonians 2) and his infernal associates, our alien imposters from outer space. They may also, be working with mad, power- hungry humans in the designing and construction of exalted technology on earth (spacecraft, biological, nuclear and other toxic substance based weapons, DNA and genetic altering technologies etc.) as mentioned in our introduction. Just as they did in the antediluvian age, in the building of great architectural and technical wonders (pyramids, ancient cities, etc.) according to the primitive technical abilities and resources of that age. I also, do not find it strange that similar type ritualistic designs and objects (e.g. pyramids, statues and monuments who appear to resemble faces and creatures) are being sighted on other planets (e.g. Mars) bearing the fingerprints of our celestial renegades and the religions they propagated on the earth, eons ago. For, as we are unveiling here, these spiritual beings sport the luxury of trafficking the heavens and can materialize in and out of physical existence. Thus, why would they not leave their mark on other orbs (planets) which would later be associated as well, with the gods of mythology and even, worshipped? The central focus of the pagan religions which our fallen celestials endeavor to perpetuate on earth. What greater strategy could be employed than to have this curiously corroborated in the heavens by even, influencing their earthling worshippers to name these uninhabitable planets after themselves and the very ancient Nephilim lords they produced on earth (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto in so doing, linking heaven and earth in a circular web of wicked idolatry, positioning them as the creators and central intelligence of the universe, eclipsing the Living God and His righteous monarchy over Heaven and earth.
“The spirits of the giants…shall be concealed, and shall not rise up against the sons of men, and against women; until they come forth during the days of slaughter and destruction.” Enoch 15:9-10
I propose that many of these sightings and interactions with space vehicles (UFOs) and aliens (fallen angels, demons and newly resurrected or created Nephilim) are our ancient celestial and extra-terrestrial culprits who are penetrating the barriers dividing the two realms-spiritual and physical, perpetrating their final attempt at the subjugation of planet earth and making way for the rise of the Beast from the abyss to enslave and eternally damn all of rebellious mankind who follow, through the spirit of disobedience, “the prince of the power of the air”-Satan!
“14 And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light;” 2 Corinthians 11:14 Amplified
Another characteristic of these “close encounters of the con-job kind” is the luminous phenomenon of overpowering light associated with their appearance, as brought out in ridiculous proportions in movies wanting to foster fascination with the aliens and their superior technology demonstrated through their spacecraft. As we have examined in our study of Angels, flashing and blinding light is directly associated with their natures and manifestation. Satan is particularly, given this distinction. “I saw Satan fall like lightning from Heaven”. His name and nature are connected with the attribute of bright light and burning fire as he was along with the other Angels created from the fire of God’s presence and he is highlighted in this regard in scripture even, by name-Lucifer (bright one, shining one, light-bearer, phosphorus, etc.) His fellow, fallen celestials are included in this distinction. Therefore, would they not employ this tactical, psychological advantage over the humans who were stripped of their “bright natures” through the fall?
“God gives over paradise to Adam, and gives him a command to see the heavens opened, and that he should see the angels singing the song of victory
1Adam has life on earth, and I created a garden in Eden in the east, that he should observe the testament and keep the command.
2I made the heavens open to him, that he should see the angels singing the song of victory, and the gloomless light.
3And he was continuously in paradise, and the devil understood that I wanted to create another world, because Adam was lord on earth, to rule and control it.
4The devil is the evil spirit of the lower places, as a fugitive he made Sotona (9) from the heavens as his name was Satanail (10), thus he became different from the angels, but his nature did not change his intelligence as far as his understanding of righteous and sinful things.
(9) Sotona. Or, “Diana.” (10) Satanail. Or, “the impious one.” Ha-satan in Hebrew means “the adversary” referring here to the “lead” adversary, or Lucifer.
5 And he understood his condemnation and the sin which he had sinned before, therefore he conceived thought against Adam, in such form he entered and seduced Eva (Eve), but did not touch Adam.
6 But I cursed ignorance, but what I had blessed previously, those I did not curse, I cursed not man, nor the earth, nor other creatures, but man’s evil fruit, and his works.” 2 Enoch 31:1-6
We have already covered earlier in this book the phenomena surrounding the alien abductions, along with their spurious, spiritual natures and themes as well as, the perverted practices and unsettling experiences of the victims experiencing these examinations. They reek with the stench of our cosmic creeps! Some of these sightings may also be coming from the light side of the spectrum for, as we have said, God has commissioned Angelic forces to monitor events on earth and protect its inhabitants. The Lord also spoke of signs in the heavens as evidence of the season of His return (Matthew 24, Luke 21). However, I cannot see the motive for mysterious appearances without explanation or purpose. Nor, would He ever cause something to surface which would cause His children to believe in another gospel of space salvation, void of His love and truth and cultivating a new belief in alien life forms of superior origin, not created in His image, usurping His role as Savior and Lord of His universe. Therefore, one can only reach the conclusion that these chariots of the gods are in fact, illusions and inventions of imposters posing as space saviors coming from other planets and galaxies in the heavens. However, are they even necessarily, coming from above?
“6And God said, Let there be a firmament [the expanse of the sky] in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters [below] from the waters [above].
7 And God made the firmament [the expanse] and separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heavens. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected into one place [of standing], and let the dry land appear. And it was so.
10 God called the dry land Earth, and the accumulated waters He called Seas. And God saw that this was good (fitting, admirable) and He approved it.” Genesis 1:7-10 Amplified
From the scripture reference above taken from the creation account in Genesis, we find something very interesting that is not often dissected. God initially, created the heavens and the seas from the same substance-water. He then divided it and relegated a part of this ethereal realm and substance to the earth to border the land-seas. As we have already examined, there is much in the scripture that gives us evidence that the abyss is located in or under the sea and is also, a prison and habitation for infernal, fallen spirits (e.g. Beast who comes out of the sea/abyss, locust type creatures released from the abyss in the apocalypse, etc.). Strange and dark occurrences have manifested in these last days in the depths
(Bermuda triangle, etc.) that confirm that something purely; unnatural is afoot underneath the aquatic surface.
Reports (construction, departure and arrival of UFO spacecraft) have also appeared from behind the glaciers of the frozen regions of the oceans (Antarctica) inferring that something alien is a brew and being kept on ice for an appointed hour of disclosure. The allegation is that there are human agents in cahoots with alien entities in the development of superior, otherworldly technology and that this is a hub for UFO spacecraft. Enoch, in his prophecies concerning travel through infernal regions is also escorted through mysterious icy territories where there is much spiritual activity. Once again, we have a recurring precedent linking the two ages prophetically and apocalyptically!
We have established in this study, that the waters for some reason have been appointed by the Lord of Spirits to house condemned spirits awaiting judgment. Especially, those who were involved in the disgusting corruption that infested the antediluvian world which was ultimately, drowned beneath the oceans themselves. We have also uncovered that many of these spirits who have been confined will be released in the last hour as part of God’s final judgment on the Nephilim Beast worshipping generation to torment and afflict them for having received his DNA altering “mark”. The pit or abyss apparently, has many aspects, attributes, varying occupants and territories-land, sky and sea. Jesus spoke of exercised spirits also being sent into the desert for banishment and imprisonment until the time of judgment. The Law of Moses also parodied this in their ritual of attributing all the people’s sins to the scapegoat fittingly named-Azazel, the chief violator in our antediluvian, deviant drama. (See Leviticus 16, “Azazel” Hebrew for Scapegoat).
“The elaborate “scapegoat” ceremony from the Law of Moses is one of the most puzzling rites of all. Alfred Edersheim, a noted scholar in the field, admitted, “Everything about it seems strange and mysterious.” This article looks at the ceremony in some detail to appreciate the enigma, considers two opposite interpretations, and then offers a proposed solution.
1. The Scapegoat
“What is a “scapegoat” and what is the origin of that word? The word scapegoat has two meanings. The most common is “one that bears the blame for others.” That person may or may not be guilty. The original meaning was “a goat upon whose head are symbolically placed the sins of the people after which he is sent into the wilderness in the biblical ceremony for Yom Kippur” (the Day of Atonement). The word was invented by William Tyndale in his 1530 English translation of the Bible. He translated the Hebrew word “Azazel”, which only occurs in connection with this ceremony, as “ez azel” the “goat” (ez) which “escapes” (azel). That seems like a good translation because in the ceremony the goat is indeed released in the wilderness. The King James Version followed his lead, as have many modern translations.
This brings us already to the first confusing meaning of this word and of the ceremony itself. On the one hand, the goat takes upon him the sins of the people, and on the other hand, he is set free in the
wilderness. The first meaning of the word given above refers to one who is blamed (and usually punished) for the sins of others, but the ceremonial goat seems to be more of an “escape goat” who ends up going free. That is the first clue that there may be a puzzle here that needs to be solved.”
The Scapegoat Dilemma by John Pratt
“13:1 Then Enoch, passing on, said to Azazyel: You shalt not obtain peace. A great sentence is gone forth against you. He shall bind you;
13:2 Neither shall relief, mercy, and supplication be yours, on account of the oppression which you have taught;
13:3 And on account of every act of blasphemy, tyranny, and sin, which you have discovered to the children of men.
13:4 Then departing [from him] I spoke to them all together;
13:5 And they all became terrified, and trembled;
13:6 Beseeching me to write for them a memorial of supplication, that they might obtain forgiveness; and that I might make the memorial of their prayer ascend up before the God of heaven; because they could not themselves thenceforwards address him, nor raise up their eyes to heaven on account of the disgraceful offence for which they were judged.
13:7 Then I wrote a memorial of their prayer and supplications, for their spirits, for everything which they had done, and for the subject of their entreaty, that they might obtain remission and rest.
13:8 Proceeding on, I continued over the waters of Danbadan, (16) which is on the right to the west of Armon, reading the memorial of their prayer, until I fell asleep.
(16) Danbadan. Dan in Dan (Knibb, p. 94).
13:9 And behold a dream came to me, and visions appeared above me. I fell down and saw a vision of punishment, that I might relate it to the sons of heaven, and reprove them. When I awoke I went to them. All being collected together stood weeping in Oubelseyael, which is situated between Libanos and Seneser, (17) with their faces veiled.
(17) Libanos and Seneser. Lebanon and Senir (near Damascus).
13:10 I related in their presence all the visions which I had seen, and my dream;
13:11 And began to utter these words of righteousness, reproving the Watchers …” 1 Enoch 13:1-11
6Again the Lord said to Raphael, Bind Azazyel hand and foot; cast him into darkness; and opening the desert which is in Dudael, cast him in there.
7Throw upon him hurled and pointed stones, covering him with darkness;
8There shall he remain forever; cover his face, that he may not see the light.
9And in the great day of judgment let him be cast into the fire.
10Restore the earth, which the angels have corrupted; and announce life to it, that I may revive it.
11All the sons of men shall not perish in consequence of every secret, by which the Watchers have destroyed, and which they have taught, their offspring.
12All the earth has been corrupted by the effects of the teaching of Azazyel. To him therefore, ascribe the whole crime.” 1Enoch 10:6-12
“4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell,[a] putting them in chains of darkness[b] to be held for judgment; 5 if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;”
2 Peter 2:4-6 (NIV)
When one understands this truth concerning Azazel and his crimes and how Jehovah God commanded that he bear the full sentence for all the atrocities which brought upon the devastating judgment of the flood, it clears up a lot of the mystery of this ritual prescribed by the Law of Moses. Here, we find yet verification for the authenticity and central role played by the book of Enoch historically, amongst God’s chosen people. Azazel is bound in the desert! I find it interesting, that many of the other places where witnesses have observed this UFO activity and seen what they believe to be control centers (shafts in the ground and sides of mountain ranges opening and extraordinary futuristic or space vehicles emerging from and returning to them) are located in desolate, desert regions (e.g. Southwest United States-New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, etc.).
Post-modern man is so convinced that these UFO’s initial origin of travel is from outer space. Yet, with all the reports of witnesses having seen these spacecraft emerge from the oceans, the Arctic and the desert, are we so thoroughly convinced that these chariots of the gods are really travelling from so far away, the heavens? Or, could they conversely and ironically, be coming from the most extremely opposite direction- the bowels of the earth, the depths of the sea and the treacherous thaw of the polar caps! We have also, corroborated from the scriptures that these subterranean serpents have been held in the infernal regions for millennia and will be released in the hour of great tribulation coming upon the earth just prior to Christ’s triumphant return!
Are these alien craft rising up from the pit and only allowing themselves to become visible to the naked eye or telescope when they reach a certain height, giving the illusion that they are visitors from deep space instead of, the oldest inhabitants of terrestrial earth and protruding from the deepest and darkest caverns of it? I personally believe, that they are coming from both directions but, it is truly irrelevant when juxta-positioned up against the weightier and more revelatory truth that they are not the eternal gods of the heavens arriving in their heavenly chariots. Nor, are they cosmic relatives who dwell on another planet in a faraway solar system come to visit us and aid us in our next evolutionary step toward human godhood. Rather, they are our ancient antagonists of old; our chief celestial and extra-terrestrial nemeses come again to finish what they started –the destruction and damnation of the human race and the blaspheming of God’s order, creation and glory!
