He [Rev. Barry H. Downing] theorizes that activities
of UFO-borne “higher beings” or “angels,” likely from another dimension
rather than from other planets, are indicated in biblical events ranging
from Egypt to Christ’s ascension.

[…] “Usually these beings looked very much like ordinary beings (they almost
never have wings). … Once the ‘package’ of biblical religion had been

Other events he sees as carried out by UFOs include:
The fire like phenomenon on Mount Sinai in which Moses received the Ten
Commandments, the Prophet Elijah taken to heaven in a fiery chariot, the star
of Bethlehem, the engulfing light of Jesus’ transfiguration, his being “lifted
up” at his ascension and the blinding visitation of Paul on the road to
“All these were UFO types of reports,” Downing said.
