“You want to know the problem with going somewhere no one’s ever been? It takes so damned long to get there.”

-Dayton Ward’s (2015) Star Trek: The Next Generation Armageddon’s Arrow p.29

The mysterious quill behind Hebrews continues drawing the hearers to their old stories. Having moved through angels and some patriarchs, they now touch upon Moses in the Jesus comparisons. How does this fit with the Ancient Alien Theology lens we are bringing to this? Surely there is nothing within the Moses story? Hmmm… Let’s think. Ancient pantheon of gods that were easily seen as aliens (just watch any Stargate show or movie), the concept of the Elohim being the alien race that had attached to the Hebrew people, the material creators of the human race (Haze, 2018, p. 98). An extra-terrestrial conflict brought to Earth, to save those who had been loyal to the Elohim, and now currently imprisoned by another alien species that used them as slave labour. Moses being in contact with the Elohim, the idea that being upon Mount Sinai and the crashing thunder and lights were a spaceship (Haze p.112-113). That it is this glory that was revealed to Moses illuminating (burning) his face, much akin to the transfiguration we see mirrored in the Canonical Gospels of Jesus in the Christian Testament.

Haze will go on to point out the communication devices that Moses used during the Exodus and how he always spoke separated from the people- perhaps a safety measure?

 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,”[a] bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.

-Epistle of Hebrews 3:1-6 (New International Version)

Reminding the people that Moses had led them out of slavery in Egypt, but had faltered in faith and as such could not lead them into the Promised Land. Moses needed to take safety measures to interact with the Elohim that is a tent of communication, being in the crevice of rocks, not facing the Glory of God directly. While it has been reported, Jesus of Nazareth has been within the Glory unprotected, and speaks directly. Pointing out and lending credence that Jesus was both – wholly human-wholly Elohim (alien).

So, as the Holy Spirit says:

“Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts
as you did in the rebellion,
during the time of testing in the wilderness,
where your ancestors tested and tried me,
though for forty years they saw what I did.
10 That is why I was angry with that generation;
I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray,
and they have not known my ways.’
11 So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’ ”[b]

12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. 14 We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end.15 As has just been said:

“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts
as you did in the rebellion.”[c]

16 Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt? 17 And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies perished in the wilderness?18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed? 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.

-Epistle of Hebrews 3:12-19 (New International Version)

Jerusalem at this time, as noted in my posts Epistle of Strawolution; is a city in flux. For a time, Rome was held at bay as the Judaic rulers-religious had seized control. The time was coming for a fiery end of the rebellion, for no Empire could let the David beat Goliath. In the midst of this change, those that were not fully within the “orthodox” religion knew they would be the first of those used as cannon fodder. It is words of reminder for those thinking of surrendering their new path of metaphysical-transcendent love of God, Self, and Neighbour and turning back that the mystery writer is tapping in to.

Reminding them of the ancient stories, when the alien messengers-creators walked with them and still the people whined (rebelled is such a strong word for those that whined to go back to slavery). It was the shift of change, it would be a change for the good, but the grief was inconsolable as these refugees from the Egyptian dynasty wandered the wilderness for 40 years- a Hebrew Generation. Why so long? Like the old adage of Peace in the Middle East or Ireland, a generation raised away from the hatred, war and anger and able to return with a fresh start for a new country is what was being proposed in the journey of the Wilderness.

It left open that who entered the Promised Land would only know about the transition phase lived, they would only know the stories of bondage in Egypt. It was a step away from the conflict and the anger of the journey for a new beginning.

And what was entry into the Promised Land, but true Sabbath…

Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it. For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened.[a] For we who have believed enter that rest, as he has said,

“As I swore in my wrath,
‘They shall not enter my rest,’”

although his works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all his works.” And again in this passage he said,

“They shall not enter my rest.”

Since therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter because of disobedience, again he appoints a certain day, “Today,” saying through David so long afterward, in the words already quoted,

“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts.”

For if Joshua had given them rest, God[b] would not have spoken of another day later on. So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, 10 for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.

11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

-Epistle of Hebrews 4:1-13 (English Standard Version)

Exposure. It is a scary concept. It is what happens when we rest. Our true selves begin to emerge, as we allow the sludge of life to slip away. Our dreams can bubble through the sub-conscious to the conscious. It is intriguing to view this concept of resting with the Creator through an Ancient Alien Theology for it shifts understanding. Yes it references to fighters- David and Joshua- both who likely used Alien technology to accomplish their feats, but speaks of a day of rest.

Is it the rest that happens with peace? Not just peace within ourselves, but as there is allusion to the life and teachings of Jesus as encouragement- peace between species and interplanetary?

What would galactic, local, and inner peace be to you?

What facets of self-need to become whole?
