"Now Christ has gone to heaven. He is seated in the place of honor next to God, and all the angels and authorities and powers are bowing before him. "
That being knew about Jesus, and that he was subject to Him.
Next, we know also that the phoenix bird disintegrated when Betty asked Jesus for help, and the phoenix bird has many dubious links to pagan deities, this this also proves that Betty was at the hands of prinicpalities and powers for they had to yield to Jesus Christ and His authority.
So, moving to chapter 9, Betty's researchers poke at her for more information about her "alien" abduction. They are completely deluded that these beings are from outerspace, EBE's and are fully negligent as to what they are really dealing with.
Page 128 - 132 - The UFO investigators ask Betty what was in the Blue Book that Quazgaa gave her, and they ask if Q or Joohop (one of the other aliens) had any predictions for the future. (Jeremiah 29:8 - 14 http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Jer&c=29&t=NLT#8) and (http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Isa&c=8&t=NLT#19)
Isaiah 8:19 - 20:
So why are you trying to find out the future by consulting mediums and psychics? Do not listen to their whisperings and mutterings. Can the living find out the future from the dead? Why not ask your God?
"Check their predictions against my testimony," says the LORD. "If their predictions are different from mine, it is because there is no light or truth in them.
So, they ask Betty what those are, and what will happen to earth, and they marvel because Betty becomes contorted and looks as though she was fighting against something trying to control her. That's demonic posession and/or channelling! But there's more. Betty (acting as a channel) says that the beings are in control, and that they are in the heavens and that they have powers. Now, that is interesting.
Check that against Ephesians 6:12
For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.
Betty's channeling continues despite her struggle and she rattles of in another laguage. This smacks of the demonic. Her investigators pester her for more information, technical formulas, star infomration, and things that one would expect to learn from a real ET. Page 132 ends with a typical "man's greed is making him destroy himself speech." Many ET and "higher being" speeches go that route.
Page 133 - 137 - Betty speaks in a weird tongue again, and the beings say through her that there is power in everything around us. Probably this is a "chi" sort of thing, or the "universal force" kind of thing. The energy in everything that's in the New Age. A bombshell is dropped again in a major way on page 134. The investigators ask Betty, not the beings, what the truth is. She emphasizes that Jesus Christ is the truth! And, that He was the only answer for humanity.
So, why did the entities allow her to say this? Did God lead her to say it? Was this a last chance for the investigators to find the key to the whole UFO enigma?
We will never know, as the investigators through this away and went right back to asking the beings questions. The beings insisted to seek things spiritually and that doors would be opened and that doors had been left open for people. Page 137 and 138 it's revealed that the beings can travel in and through the earth. What's in the earth? More than likely, the earth is filled with liquid hot magma, and who do we know that used to walk through "the hot stones of fire?" aka, Magma? Satan.
I ordained and anointed you as the mighty angelic guardian. [fn] You had access to the holy mountain of God and walked among the stones of fire.
(Now that passage refers to the king of Tyre, but think about it. Would a mortal man have been in Eden? Or how about being described as an angelic guardian?)
Next, also consider this. The Bible describes that there are beings under the earth. Humanity's ability to be under the earth is quite limited.
So, these beings' ability to be under the earth, presumably with magma, etc hints at a demonic origin.
Page 138 - Interestingly, Betty is asked how many alien races are visiting earth. The number now is "who knows" depending on who you ask, but the beings said through Betty that there were 70 different races. This is strikingly familiar with Michael Heiser's work on the divine council, where he points out that there were 70 beings who were basically in charge of the nations. (Ie, principalities and powers) http://www.thedivinecouncil.com/. This is a fascinating study, and I encourage you to check it out.
Much of the discussion is a back and forth, going in circles kind of fare. Typical for New Age/channelled information.
Chapter 10 takes a look at the blue book that was given to Betty. The book has a number of unusual qualities, but it was taken away after Betty had read it for a while. Betty asked God and Jesus to show her about the book, but it's not clear what happened from there. Words came to her, but we're not told what those words were. Betty's daughter Becky also touched the book, and unfortunately Becky is well trenched into the New Age and has a number of experiences like Betty's.
Betty then begins channelling another entity, and he seems rather shy. He didn't materialize, or say much to the investigators. I mention this because, now that the doors were opened with Betty, through the abduction and hypnosis, spirits seemed to like coming around.
This scripture comes to mind.
Matthew 12:43 - 45:
"When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none. Then it says, `I will return to the person I came from.' So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and clean. Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before. That will be the experience of this evil generation."
In any event, the investigators' questioning of the new entity led them nowhere.
Chapter 11 is more or less a wrap up of the abduction event. Not much worth noting there.
Page 180 (chpt 11) - They note that Betty had read books and articles on UFOs. A key feature though, is that some of her case coincides with cases that hadn't been published. Could this have opened the door for her to have experiences? Possibly.
Page 181 - One interesting thing the investigators said.
"Regarding the bird and the voice, our attitudes varied: this segment was a nonrelated vision instigated by Betty's own religious beliefs; this episode was a programmed vision induced by the entities; it could have been a staged, symbolic (yet physical) initiation rite as descried by Betty; it was a deliberate deception on the part of the aliens to make human beings believe in a UFO/religion connection. And Lastly, perhaps there was a possible link between UFOs and religion."
It's frustrating reading this book, because the investigators get so close, so many times, yet walk right past the truth. In any event, the above explanations are plausible, some partially, and perhaps some could tie into the religious aspect. Rest assured, this and other UFO experiences are quite likely demonic in origin and Joe Jordan has hundreds of case studies proving that abduction can be stopped by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Joe's theory does no take into account the possiblity of physical abductions, and there are undoubtedly some, but for now let's keep focused on the spiritual side of things.
Zipping along to Chapter 12.
Page 186 - 187 - Betty seems to have acquired some limited psychic ability (always demonic in origin) and received flashes of insight here and there about various things. She also describes a light being she saw at some point. Her house, and hers alone also experienced power failures for no reason.
2 Corinthians 11:14 - 15
But I am not surprised! Even Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder his servants can also do it by pretending to be godly ministers. In the end they will get every bit of punishment their wicked deeds deserve.
Page 188 - Betty was reading her Bible, and felt the sense of being watched. She looked up to see what can only be described as a demonic being, or possibly a nephilim. Red hair and eyebrows, black eyes, the whole works. He looked ordinary except the eyes. This was in the early 60's well before her investigation had started.
Another instance had her daughter Becky screaming after seeing an orb of light. After this, she was able to perform "automatic writing" in strange symbols.
There were a number of other things that the investigators brought up, but the next thing of special interest comes from the epilogue. It seems that time had passed an Betty was divorced (something common with abductees) and met a new man, Bob Luca. Without totally throwing Bob under the bus, he was apparently a Rosicrucian, further opening Betty's world into the occult.
Page 198 - After a number of phone calls from an "angry hornet voice" that were likely the beings, Betty reflects that "she had made a choice to serve the alien creatures. Now she wanted to break this bond, but there seemed to be no way to break this bond."
Betty later finds that two of her sons were killed in an auto accident. This was within 24 hours of hearing a telphone call from strange mechanical voices. (During her investigation, one of the investigators had suffered a heart attack.) Fowler notes that the death toll for this investigation was now four.
Page 200 - Betty "was convinced that the alien voice on the phone was that of a fallen or evil angel who hinted at - or caused - the tragic deaths of her sons."
Then her investigators again poo poo her faith, and get into what LA Marzulli calls "the alien gospel." That is, our ancestors were stupid and thought advanced technology was supernatural powers. (thanks Arthur C CLarke for giving us that lie.)
Page 202 - Fowler asked deliberate reliogous questions at one point.
"Raymond Fowler - Have they anything to do with what we call the second coming of Christ?
Betty -They definitely do.
RF - When is this going to occur?
B - It is not for them to tell you
RF - Do they know?
B - They know the Master is getting ready, and very close.
RF - But do they know the date?
B - No.
RF - Who does know the date?
B - The Father"
Contrast this with:
"However, no one knows the day or the hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows."
It is interesting to note that the entities were truthful this time. Why? Did they fear losing credibility? Who can say? Perhaps they told a small truth to help Betty, Fowler, and people swallow the larger lie that they were really aliens.
Finishing the book now, I see no obvious reasons why Betty endured this. The book lists her family, and there was no obvious connection with abduction or occult things in her family history. I'm not sure how this will go, but perhaps I can try to ask her family if there's anything that wasn't written about in the book.
In the final pages of the Andreasson Affair, Betty mentions an extra entity came into her house when she was abducted. She described this entity as a cloud, or a "shade." I don't know that I make much of this other than perhaps that was the demon, and the aliens were just illusion. That is pure speculation on my part.
So, what does this all mean? I stick to the theory that Betty Andreasson was abducted by demonic entities and was taken (perhaps physicaly, perhaps not) on this crazy journey. There were multiple times when the truth about Jesus Christ's power over these beings nearly came forth, but for some reason or another, the spirits were never tested. http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=1Jo&c=4&v=1&t=NLT
1 John 4:1 -
Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
This is the way to find out if they have the Spirit of God: If a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ became a human being, that person has the Spirit of God.
If a prophet does not acknowledge Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist. You have heard that he is going to come into the world, and he is already here.
But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won your fight with these false prophets, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.
And at no point were the entities rebuked in the name and authority of Jesus Christ, nor did Betty repent that she had given them a foothold into her life. Again, this is no disrespect to Betty, but rather shows the state of the modern church. We are sadly ignorant of our spiritual authority when we are in a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
I myself have been victim of this. I believe there was a time when I was an immature Christian that I was under demonic oppression, and I did nothing to stop it. I had no idea what was going on.
Know this, that if you experience abduction, ask Jesus Christ for help, and get Him to come into your life as Lord and Savior ASAP. Ask Him to close the doors, and show you with the Holy Spirit what you need to do to stop them, and He will show you.
Peace in Christ.
