the devil made me do it

I was re-reading the gospel of John recently and picked up on a phrase that I had not noticed before.  This is John 14 and the phrase is highlighted in verse 30 below:

28Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

 29And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

 30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

The “prince of this world”…to whom was he referring?  Could it be the devil, i.e.  malevolent extraterrestrials?  I couldn’t help but think about the temptation of Christ and what I had written about it in “Abode of the Clouds”.  Following is an excerpt:

” I read out loud from Luke 4:5-8: 

“And the devil, taking him up into a high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.  And the devil said until him, All this power will I give to thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord they God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

“It’s that phrase ‘all this power will I give to thee…for that is delivered unto me’ which intrigues me.  It sounds like all the kingdoms of the world were given to the devil, and as such, they were his to give away.  And one other thing, in Matthew’s gospel he specifically says ‘Jesus was led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.’  You have to remember that this happened right after the baptism of Christ, where the spaceship hovered over Jesus in the River Jordan and said ‘thou art my beloved son in whom I am well pleased’.   So the father of Jesus is saying he’s well pleased with Jesus at one moment, and the next he takes him to the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. What do you make of all this, Russell?” I asked.

“Well, I guess you could say the power and kingdoms of this world do belong to the devil,” Russell responded.

That response certainly got everyone’s attention.

“Could you please hand me the bible, Connie?” Russell asked.

We watched as he flipped over to the Gospel of John.

“Okay, this is it.  John Chapter 8, starting with verse 42.  Jesus is speaking to the Jews and this is what he says: ‘Jesus said unto them, If God were your father ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  Why do you not understand what I say?  It is because you cannot bear to hear my words.  You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him.  When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.’  ….’”

“So ‘God the Father’ in the New Testament is not the ‘God’ of the Old Testament?” Joshua asked.

“Right.  The so-called Christian churches want you to believe that the Old and New Testament ‘gods’ are one in the same, but they are not.  The Christians even put the New Testament together with the Old Testament and called it ‘the bible’.  They didn’t want the human to start thinking about the possibility of two separate ‘god’ entities, as it might actually lead to the truth.”

“Organized religion doesn’t want the human to think period,” Alex complained.  “Just accept what they tell us ‘on faith’, that’s what they want.  And the good little sheep follow.”

“You’re right about that, Alex,” Joshua muttered.

Then Russell turned to Ephesians, and I knew the section he was going to read next.

“This is Ephesians 6, verse 12: ‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.’ These two selections from the bible pretty much describe the situation with the malevolent extraterrestrials.”

And then there’s the following:

Revelation 12:7-9
“And there was war in heaven . . . and the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

Is this world (government, religion, industry, technology, media) ruled by malevolent extraterrestrials?  Is this the devil’s domain?  Certainly the media is hard at work keeping the populace entertained with mindless drivel and feeding us with only the information or misinformation that we are allowed.  And technology has advanced to the point where we are no longer able to take a step without our cell phones, ipods, etc.  Talk, talk, talk and very little thinking and searching for truth.  God forbid we think and search for truth…   But some of us are.

Searching….Finding

We know we are different.  We know science claims it has no answers.  And so, those of us with Rh Negative Blood search.

We each came to the realization of our uniqueness in various ways.  I knew I was somehow different when I was just a small child and had an out of body experience…and I told no one.  And later when I experienced episodes of sleep paralysis as a teenager…I told no one.   And when I saw the UFO in the night sky zooming in my direction, I told no one except for my mother who was with me and witnessed the same thing.  Yet we told no one, not even the members of our family.

It wasn’t until I gave birth to my daughter decades ago that I realized that I had Rh-Negative Blood.  At that time I didn’t realize how rare it was.  Over the years I had been drawn to all things metaphysical.  I was searching, searching for some unnamed something.  And then one day the words “in our image” jumped off the page as I was reading Genesis 1:26.  And then the real search began.  I was a woman possessed.  It was like putting a puzzle together without all the pieces.  Out of body experience…sleep paralysis…UFO….Rh Negative Blood….in our image.

I knew that what I was finding and what I was thinking needed to be written down and shared. This time I wanted to tell everyone!  I wanted it to be easy to read, entertaining in fact, and yet  contain the information I had found and the conclusions that I had reached.  And so I wrote my first novel “In Our Image” and its sequel “Abode of the Clouds”, all the while continuing to search. 

I can report that I have found.  I have found many, many of you who are like me.  Those of us with Rh Negative Blood seem to be drawn together in our search.   My path crosses with Rh Negative individuals quite frequently.  It should no longer surprise me, and yet it does.  For example, a woman was interested in the metaphysical attributes of gemstones and crystals and that interest brought us together.  She then bought my books and I received the following email from her:

“Just wanted to let you know that I sat down and read “In Our Image” it was really a good book. I finished it that night. I have found the subject of UFO’s interesting since I was a little kid. I have seen several in my life time. I have had two out of body experiences and I am RH-. Like the ladies say in book two (I am reding it now) “Weird”.”

Well, it was “weird” because I was unaware that she had an interest in UFO’s, or had out of body experiences, or was Rh Negative.  But the Universe brought us together, just as it is bringing many of us together to share our thoughts and knowledge as we search.
