Strange Lights in the Sky
There are 160 verses describing lights and fires
as vehicles in the Bible
Until almost 2000 years after the last book of the Bible was written, there were no forms of artificial light and if a flashlight were turned on in the camp of Moses, it would be a miracle, to say the least. The only lights known were the sun, the moon, stars, fire, lightning, and reflections from those sources. It is not surprising that these sources are what the authors used to describe the illumination appearing from these vehicles and the beings associated with them.
A Glowing Object Passes Over
15:17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.
This is the first indication that a glowing, flying object is associated with the Elohiym. The word 'passed' is more properly rendered 'passed over'. Furnace = fire pot. Smoking = vapor. Lamp = shining. Burning = fire. So, what is being said is that something resembling a shining, vaporous firepot passed over after dark.
Burning Sulphur From The Sky
19:24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven.
Yhovah drops fiery substances and objects from the sky as a means of destruction. These acts are recorded many times in Biblical text. The word 'brimstone means sulphur or sulphur-like, obviously relating to the burning effect of the substance.
The Burning Bush
3:2 And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4 And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
There is a glowing object on the ground, resembling a bramble, from which Yhovah speaks to Moses. Note that he sees light that seems to be a fire, but it is not consuming the object, in other words, it is glowing. Since, in other text, God contacts mankind in glowing, flying objects and not glowing bushes, this is something on the ground other than a burning bush. Further examination of the method God uses to present himself will show that this is probably a flying craft that is on the ground. Bush = bramble.
Fire From The Sky
9:23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt. 24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
Yhovah is dropping or firing flashing, fiery objects from the sky after Moses lifts the rod. Fire appears to be walking around on the ground. It is very serious and there is a lot of noise.
13:21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: 22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.
A platform, flown by Yhovah, resembling a thunder cloud that glows brightly at night, leads the nation of Israel out of Egypt. Cloud = thunder-cloud, Pillar = column or base of column ie, platform, Light = to be luminous. The book of Exodus is where we get the first indication that God uses physical flying objects as a mode of transportation. It is described as a pillar of a cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night. The word pillar is translated from `ammuwd, Pron. am-mood; a column as standing; also a stand, i.e. platform. This means that this could either be a column or a platform that had the appearance of a cloud in the daylight and, when the sun went down, it lit up. And it is staying close to the people, in other words, hovering. When considered in light of descriptions not yet presented, the platform seems a more logical choice.
14:24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians
The flying object wreaks havoc on the Egyptian camp. An important thing to understand about this craft is that it is one object that changes appearance from day to night, not two objects. Troubled = hamam, pronounced haw-mam', properly, to put in commotion.
Yhovah Descends With Great Commotion
19:18 And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. 19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.
The whole mountain is enveloped in a glowing, smoky vapor, the mountain is vibrating rapidly and the vehicle is emitting the sound of a loud ramís horn. The vehicle causes vibrations.
Booming Sounds, Bright Lights
20:18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar of.
The noise and lights from the vehicle are so intense, the people retreat a distance from it.
Glory And Light
24:17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
Glory is directly associated with the lights emanating from the craft.
The Hovering Vehicle Glory And Light
40:34 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 35 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 36 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: 37 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. 38 For the cloud of the Lord was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
The flying object remained in the presence of the nation wherever it went.
The Vehicle Provides Shade And Light
9:16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
The vehicle provides shade during the day and illumination at night.
Yhovah Glows And Flies Away
