"A Close Encounter!"

A revelation of things to come?

First Published February 1978

I had this crazy dream. Just as I started walking into a barn all of a sudden somebody yelled, "Here they come! They've come just like they said they would!"--and the title of that movie "Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind" flashed across my mind, the first contact with the flying-saucer people that had come, although I hadn't seen it.

I looked up in the sky and here came these big balls rolling along, about as big as those great big push-balls they used to have.--balls that are higher than a man's head, great big, big balls, 5 or 6 feet or about a couple of meters in diameter.

They had crazy faces sort of painted on them, or that was my first impression, and some seemed just like one big eyeball. They all seemed like they were alive!

Everybody was frightened and running from them, almost like an invasion! They were dancing through the sky and sort of rolling and rollicking, like they were playing and having fun. Nevertheless, they were also trying to frighten us, or at least were amused at our fright.

Then I saw this huge giant coming! He must have been 25 feet high and was walking along behind them. It was as though he was directing them.

He was in a very strange kind of a space suit or something, very dark-coloured, almost black. I think it was very deep purple, skin-tight. he almost looked like he was in a suit of armour, some kind of material, like that guy in "Star Wars". and he had this funny headgear on.

He had a rather strange head with staring, scary eyes, big pointed ears and kind of a sharp nose. It was almost like a beak, like some of those bird faces or demon faces I saw in that "Crash" dream.

He was walking along almost like a robot, like he wasn't too agile but was clomping along directing all these balls that were shooting around in the sky. They were shooting just over our heads and then way up. They would zoom down to frighten people, just like they were laughing when they would scare somebody and they'd run. So I ran into the barn and watched through the window.

This huge giant kept walking right toward the barn. He stooped down and looked through the window, his huge face filling up the whole window cackling and laughing at me, "Ah ha, I found you, there you are! You don't think you're really going to get away, do you?"

I ran out the other end of the barn and here they came from that direction as well, these giants walking and the balls shooting out of the sky! This time, there were some very pretty girls with them in the same strange kind of suits and somewhat the same facial appearance.

I don't know how to describe their heads, or the headgear. I don't know whether it's heads or headgear. have you ever seen girls wear those rabbit hats with the big ears sticking up, like the playboy bunnies wear sometimes?

It's kind of a hat that fits around on their face like a helmet with two big ears on top, only theirs were sharp pointed ears and their faces almost like beaks, and they resembled the giant.

One girl ran toward me like she was so happy to see me and she was gonna grab me and make love to me. I didn't like her so I turned around and ran back into the barn, but she caught up with me and pounced on me anyhow.

The feeling I had was that she threw her arms around me and she sunk her beak or her teeth into the back of my neck just like a vampire. Then this real funny feeling just flowed over me. It was very pleasant in a way. It was strange, it was almost like sex! It felt real good, almost like she'd injected something, and it was just like I went to sleep.

I felt this nice warm feeling flowing down my back. I don't know, maybe it was blood running down my back. It sort of scared me and I immediately woke up, fully awake and not dreaming anymore and lying in bed on my left side facing you and the door.

I suddenly had the strange feeling that this same girl was bending over you, (David's wife) like she had finished me and she was there bending over you in the dark, looking down at you just ready to bite you in the throat.

I could almost feel her more than see her although I could see her faint outline. It was pitch dark but somehow the Lord let me see her.

The minute I opened my eyes and saw her, she whirled around without standing up and quickly ran out the door. I could hear her click the knob of the handle as she ran. Then it suddenly dawned on me that the room was absolutely pitch black with no light coming in from the bathroom anymore. I could hardly tell whether the door was open or shut.

I thought maybe I was mistaken. Maybe it was you, maybe you'd just gone to the bathroom, but light didn't come on and I didn't hear any sound in the bathroom. I leaned over and I could hear you breathing. you seemed still there, asleep.

I was quite wide awake when it happened because I had just awakened from the dream and was startled by this presence bending over you!

She was almost like some kind of a spiritual vampire. My first impression was to quick turn on the light, and finally, in spite of whether it was going to wake you up or not, I felt like we needed some light, that I had to turn the light on.

I definitely saw this dark figure, I definitely saw her. How I know it was a women, I don't know, but it was a woman. How I felt that it resembled those things I was seeing in my dream, I don't know, because it turned out to be pitch dark in here.

If she was a spirit, it seems she wouldn't necessarily need to open and shut doors, unless she was startled in the act of bending over you and going to try to sink her beak or her teeth or whatever into you, that was the feeling I had because I'd just had this dream.

Could it be that sometimes they can't dematerialise fast enough? She must have been materialised because I could see and sort of feel her.

Could it be that sometimes they can't change over fast enough to make it when they are in the physical or material form? Ghosts are notorious for materialising and making noises, creaking doors and steps and making all kinds of sounds, because when they're materialised they've got to obey the same laws of physics that we do.

Jesus went through the door when he was in the spirit, and then he materialised right inside the room! It didn't say how he did it, apparently spirits can dematerialise and then go right through a wall or door or anything.

She didn't have time to dematerialise because I woke so suddenly and I was looking right at her. I could see the whole thing. I was wide awake!

She turned quickly, opened that door and dashed through it! I could hear her hand on the knob and everything! She opened this door and quickly pulled it almost shut behind her, closed just a little bit more than I had left it. Then I heard the outside door opening and then shutting again.

I thought, "My God, we should have some light on in here!" I have always known, it's pretty common knowledge, that evil spirits and ghosts don't like light.

Could they actually have hurt us? The Lord only says He will never allow you to be tempted and tested more than you are able to bear. ( 1Co.10:13 .)

He doesn't say they'll not be able to harm you, look at all the martyrs. He didn't even say that they wouldn't be able to do something with Christ! The devil picked up Jesus and took him up to the pinnacle of the temple, and set him on a high mountain, and did several other things, but all within the limitations of God.

In other words, they are not able to do us any permanent damage, especially spiritually, but the Lord does allow us to go through these tests. He even allowed His saints to go through tortures, burning at the stake, crucifixion, all kinds of things!

He won't allow any permanent damage, any permanent harm, and he promises to deliver us. If no other way, he delivers us by death. You can always call on the Lord and through Him have power over everything. You don't have to worry about anything. This dream is just like what's going to happen.

He is going to turn the world over to the devil for awhile, and Satan is going to have power. He is going to have power over the saints and overcome them. (Rev.13:7 .) He has no power over our spirits, only over our bodies, like he has in death.

What I think happened was that in a way she killed me. But it was a wonderful feeling. It spread all over me and I fainted and I was gone. That was probably what happened in the dream.

Since the dream was rather scary and frightening like a nightmare, it was not necessarily the Lord, but more like something the devil had given, and just as I was lying here momentarily in the dark praying about it, it came to me. Sometimes I've had bad dreams because I didn't pray.

The only thing I can get out of it is that the devil is going to really put on some phenomenal manifestations like that in the Last Days just to frighten people and scare them to death, "men's hearts failing them for fear", "distress of nations" and "signs in the sky" and so on. ( Lk.21:11,25,26 .) That was just like signs in the sky that I was seeing.

In a lot of movies and TV that I have seen, the enemy is preparing the world. Remember, everything the devil does is an imitation of what Christ does, the devil has never thought up anything new. He simply imitates God's methods, he imitates his whole organisation. He is the imitation saviour, the imitation messiah.

Christ's coming is literally going to be an invasion from outer space! If you had talked about stuff like this years ago and given it spiritual names, people would have ridiculed it. Because they've dressed it up in all this scientific paraphenalia and scientific atmosphere and with scientific logic--spaceships, extraterrestrial beings, superior beings from outer space and so on, people will believe it.

The devil used to use the spiritualistic mediums and their societies as his means of approach, all these spiritist churches and so on. But because the work of some of these investigators so discredited the spiritualistic mediums and had branded so many of them as phonies, the devil couldn't use that direct approach anymore.

He had to get out of the spiritual and religious and put his message into the scientific so the people would accept it. Now he's making many of his spiritualistic approaches through scientific forms and media. I know that God definitely engineers certain things, and I'm certain he even allows the devil to engineer some things.

Invasion from outer space, what a way for the antichrist to arrive! Just like the second coming of Christ, to arrive like he was coming from outer space, like he was a superior being, a higher intelligence arriving from some other planet to solve the world's problems. What a way for him to come!

Imitate the coming of Christ and make it all sound scientific so the people would believe him. Most people will believe anything that smacks of science or sounds scientific. If it smacks of religion or spirituality or anything like that, many people will not accept it. If they can just make it sound and look scientific, then the people will receive him as a superior being who has come to help solve all these terrible problems we have, like a God.

He will be like a God to them, but he will try to put it in a plausible scientific form that people will believe. The antichrist will be sort of a scientific God, if you want to put it that way.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the antichrist, the devil incarnate, is going to stage some kind of phoney invasion from outer space. In a way, since that's the devil and his demons, the fallen angels, they are from outer space. but he is going to use human beings by possession, and is somehow going to capture this man, this human that he's going to use for the antichrist.

He is going to work all kinds of miracles and do all kinds of wonders.

(Rev. 13:13)

Apparently he's even going to be killed and then come back to life--the beast which was "wounded unto death" but did live. (Rev.13:3) It is going to be just like a resurrection, another imitation of Jesus, because he is wounded unto death and yet he comes back to life.

The devil has a trinity too, of which he is the God, the father. Then he has the antichrist as his son, and then he has the evil spirit, the false prophet. The devil has imitated everything else--he's even going to imitate the death, resurrection and second coming of Christ in his antichrist son!

(A possible alternative scenario may be a faked invasion from outer space to unite the world behind the antichrist. Below are two quotes from Ronald Reagan and Henry Kissinger illustrating that this idea has already been put forth in the public domain.

In 1985 President Reagan told Mikhail Gorbachev at a Geneva summit meeting that:

"I couldn't help but say to him , just how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from another species from another planet outside in the universe. We'd forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on the Earth together." Reuters, "Reagan Images Star Wars," International Herald Tribune, Paris, Dec. 5th, 1985

"Today America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing that man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the world government."
