"And they {the 144,000 saints} sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty, just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints."--Revelation 15:3 (bold emphisis, braces added).

   When we contemplate the mighty power of the Lord God manifested in the deliverance of the children of Israel from Egypt as they crossed the Red Sea, we can not help but join the praise to Him and exclaim: "Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty!"

   "The Red Sea was before, the Egyptian host behind. They could see no way of escape. A shout of triumph burst from the Egyptians to find Israel completely in their power. The Israelites were greatly terrified. But the Lord commanded Moses to bid them go forward, and to lift up the rod and stretch out his hand over the sea and divide it. He did so, and lo, the sea parted, and the children of Israel passed over dry shod."--1 Testimonies, pg. 265:1 (bold emphasis was added by the author).

   "And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with His mighty wind shall He shake His hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dry shod."--Isaiah 11:15.

   "Yes, the Lord will open the way for the gathering of His people. The Exodus of today, therefore, shall be as the Exodus of yesterday, only on a greater scale. God's people in these last days shall be gathered from every land, not from the land of Egypt only."--2 Timely Greetings, No. 31, pg. 8:1, 2 (bold emphasis added by author).

   "These scriptures plainly show that the Exodus Movement of old led by Moses through his shepherd's rod, from Egypt to Canaan, points forward in type to the final deliverance of God's people {144,000 saints} from their long servitude to the kingdoms of this world, to freedom in the kingdom of God. Accordingly, this final and latter day Exodus Movement is to be led by the antitypical Shepherd's Rod, and liberated from all earthly sinners."--3 Answerer, pgs. 19, 20 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   What a wonderful promise given to us Davidians from the type. As ancient Israel walked over the Red Sea dry shod, so antitypical Israel (144,000 saints) will also "reach their land without so much as getting their feet wet." (1TG31:8:0). And though nothing is impossible with God; and even though these saints can trust Him fully and believe that He will make a way for them to get to the Promised Land; yet, this perplexing question still comes to the minds of some Davidians:


   When we consider the few miles which the children of Israel walked to cross the Red Sea, and compare that to several thousand miles across the Atlantic Ocean between the United States of America and Jerusalem, wouldn't this cause any thinking Davidian to ask himself this question: "We can't walk that far, so how will we get to the kingdom?

   To answer that question, let us suppose that all the Davidian saints should gather at the Salem Headquarters, which is at the "east gate of the Lord's house" (Ezek. 10:19) facing Jerusalem; and that the Atlantic Ocean should open up, as the Red Sea did for Israel, and that they are to literally walk to God's kingdom. Well, then, they must descend to the floor of the ocean, 12,880 ft. (2 1/2 miles deepest part), and walk 3,183 miles to Gibraltar, the tip of Spain; then enter the Mediterranean Sea and walk another 1,007 miles up to the shore of Palestine. What a walk that would be!

   But these two questions might be asked: "Doesn't God have the power to open up the Atlantic Ocean? and couldn't He give to Davidians the physical strength and endurance to walk dryshod all that distance?" The answer is, of course, Yes, He could, but that is contrary to Scripture:

   "For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work {during the time of the Loud Cry} will the Lord make upon the earth."--Romans 9:28 (bold emphasis added).

   That is, if the Lord is to make a "short work" of the Loud Cry message, how can the bay horses, the 144,000 (2Tr39:1), obey God's command to "Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth" (Zech. 6:7), and quickly to do a "short work" if, while preaching the Loud Cry message, they must literally walk the great multitude across the continents and oceans to get them to the kingdom? Think of the time consumed, even if they had the strength to do it! That certainly would not be cutting the work "short in righteousness"!

   And even if the 144,000 were given the strength to run instead of walk, the gospel work would be hindered by this slow method of movement, because the wicked would work against them by the use of modern-day transportation--the airplane. And which of the bay horse saints can run that fast on land and at the bottom of the ocean floor?

   Or course, someone may ask: "What about all the modern-day transportation--the cars, trains, ships, and airplanes? Could not they be used by the 144,000 to preach the Loud Cry to bring in a great multitude?" This could be so, if, however, we had access to this transportation at that time. But not likely, because Jacob's trouble for the 144,000 is just before us; which proves that if we did have access to such transportation, it would be taken away from us.

   "Jacob and Esau represents two classes: Jacob, the righ-teous, and Esau, the wicked. Jacob's distress when he learned that Esau was marching against him with four hundred men, represents the trouble of the righteous as the decree goes forth to put them to death."--Story of Redemption, pg. 97:1 (bold emphasis added).

   "A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for deliverance. This was the time of Jacob's trouble."--Early Writings, pgs. 36, 37 (bold emphasis added).

   "I saw a writing, copies of which were scattered in different parts of the land giving orders that unless the saints should yield their peculiar faith, give up the Sabbath, and observe the first day of the week {Sunday}, the people were at liberty after a certain time to put them to death."--Early Writings, pgs. 282, 283 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "But there will yet be a decree before the fifth trumpet ends {at Ezek. 9 slaughter}, that if men dare to disobey, they must face the threatened penalty of death."--12 Symbolic Code, No. 2, pg. 14:1 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "If there were no possibility for fear at the fulfillment of this chapter, there would be no need for this reassurance and instruction. It is indicative of the fact that God's people will see themselves absolutely helpless, and they will appear helpless to all others. Then they will receive deliverance from God, and all will behold it."--13 Symbolic Code, No. 3, pg. 8:4 (bold emphasis added).

  "Satan's host and wicked men will surround them {the 144,000 saints} and exult over them because there will seem to be no way of escape for them."--1 Testimonies, pg. 354:0 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   Can you imagine the 144,000 Jacobites in this "absolutely helpless" condition, surrounded by the wicked with "no way of escape for them," while they have a "death decree" over their heads, while trying to buy tickets to travel to Jerusalem? Or can you imagine the great multitude trying to buy tickets during the time when they cannot buy or sell without receiving the number 666 of the image beast?

   "In the last great conflict of the controversy with Satan those who are loyal to God will see every earthly support cut off. Because they refuse to break His law in obedience to earthly powers, they will be forbidden to buy {travel tickets} or sell. It will finally be decreed that they shall be put to death. See Rev. 13:11-17."-- Desire of Ages, pgs. 121, 122 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   It's obvious that the foregoing inspired references will prove two facts: (1) The saints will not literally walk across the floor of the seas to the kingdom. (2) The saints will not have access to modern transportation to travel to the kingdom, though some may go there on "horses...mules...swift beasts" (Isa. 66:20). And since these two facts do not answer the question: "How do the saints get to the kingdom?" then the question still persists. The key to understanding this perplexing question is seen in the quotation below:

   "In one of his grandest prophecies, Isaiah projects in lineaments unmistakable the great antitypical counterpart of the Exodus movement: 'And there shall be an highway for the remnant of His people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.' Isa. 11:16. As the 'passover' and the slaughter of the 'first born' (first fruits) who had not the blood on the 'door posts,' released God's ancient people from the bondage of Egypt, so shall the antitypical Passover (Ezek. 9:4; Isa. 66:16) free the first fruits, the 144,000, His first born now, from the bondage of sin and sinners today."--8 Tract, pgs. 73, 74 (bold emphasis added).

   There you have the answer! Before we can have a part in the second Exodus, and cross the antitypical Red Sea by the "highway" (1TG31:8; 35:26) of the Lord, we must first escape the antitypical passover--the slaughter of Ezekiel 9.  And then the Lord will provide the saints with His own transportation on His "highway" in the air to the kingdom!

   "I saw angels hurrying to and fro {travelling} in heaven, descending {by celestial flight} to the earth, and again ascending {by celestial flight} to heaven, preparing for the fulfillment of some important event {Ezek. 9 slaughter}."--Early Writings, pg. 277:1 (bolds, braces added).

   "It seems in the expression, 'the angels hurrying to and fro {moving from heaven to earth by celestial flight},' the author has reference to {angels flying to the earth for) the fulfillment of {the slaughter of} Ezekiel 9, and then follows the mighty angel of the Loud Cry of Rev. 18:1."--1 Shepherd's Rod book, pg. 36:0 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   The fact that the angels are "hurrying to and fro" from heaven to earth, in preparation for the "fulfillment of Ezekiel 9" slaughter (1SR36:0), proves that they must have some mode of transportation (by celestial flight through heavenly spaces to earth) in order to move back and forth. And when that "important event" of the sealing is finally accomplished, then they will use the same mode of transportation {aerial flight through the earth's atmosphere) to come and execute the slaughter, and take to Jerusalem the saints who are left--those "of" the 144,000 and those "with" them (2SC5:8:1). Its obvious, then, that the way the angels travel "to and fro" from heaven to the earth, is the same way that the saints will travel to the kingdom--by heaven's flying saucers!


   To the world at large, the sight of a flying saucer fills them with uncertainty, consternation, and fearfulness as to what the future holds for mankind. And many are afraid of them because of the reports they hear of people who have been burned or temporary blinded by them, and animals mutilated; also of bizarre abductions where experiments were conducted upon their captives. This caused many to think that all flying saucers are evil.  The scientific mind could think they are strange be-ings from outer space, while the religious mind could think they are evil angels.  And why not? After all, Satan and his angels travel in earth's atmosphere today in their flying saucers, just as he travelled through the starry space in his celestial chariot to heaven in Job's day:

   "In the days of Job Satan still had access to heaven, for we are told that '...there was a day when the sons of God came {from other planets by celestial travel} to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came {from earth by a flying saucer} also among them. And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord and said, From going to and fro in the earth {in his flying saucer} and from walking up and down in it.' Job 1:6, 7."--15 Tract, pg. 81:2 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   As for the reports of some people being hurt by grotesque looking beings in flying saucers, and that they are the devil's evil angels, may be true. But this does not discount the fact that God's angels also travel in similar chariots, and that they have come to earth to slay the wicked in God's church (1SR36:0), as well as to help the saints finish the gospel. Obviously the general public would think that the unexplainable mysticism of the flying saucers is an omen of catastophic events soon to occur; while the faithful David-ians know what these events portend (the slaughter of Ezekiel 9 and the Loud Cry). Therefore, to the Davidian saints these mysterious flying saucer sightings can only be a sign post that indicates the nearness of their fulfillment!

   Ever since the sealing angel (SRod) arrived in 1929 (2A34:0), the sightings of the flying saucers (UFO) increased. It was after Bro. Houteff moved to old Mt. Carmel Center near Waco, Texas in 1935 that he began to write about them; the last time was in the White House Recruiter in 1951 before he died in 1955. Fours years later his wife brought the "knockout blow" (WHR33:2) in 1959 by her false teachings, after which she dissolved new Mt. Carmel Center. But in 1961 the Davidians reorganized in Los Angeles, California and set up God's Headquarters in Riverside. Later, God directed them to move His Headquarters eastward to Salem, So. Carolina in 1970. And still the UFO sightings continued, in some places on a much larger scale, because the angels are still working to seal those "of" the 144,000 and those "with" them (1TG4:27:1). All of which proves that the angels are indeed "hurrying to and fro" from heaven to earth in flying saucers (UFO) preparing for that "important event"--"the fulfillment of Ezekiel 9" (1SR36)--the slaughter!

   And the fact that God's Davidian Headquarters has moved "eastward" where a large company will be raised up in the east" (1T414:1), proves that the sealing is nearing completion; and that the angels in flying saucers will soon come to slay the wicked in God's church, and take those left alive ("of" the 144,000 and those "with" them) to the kingdom.

   "For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with His chariots {angels in flying saucers_celestrial travel} like a whirlwind {traveling in the air}, to render His anger {slay the wicked in God's church) with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire."--Isaiah 66:15 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   The SRod message has given abundant proof that this coming is not Christ's second advent, but His coming in judgment to the S.D.A. church by the slaughter of Ezek. 9.

   "Those who are sealed from 1929 to the fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 (close of probation for the church), are living saints, 144,000 in number, who shall never die--translated without tasting death. The class which neglected their opportunity were left without the seal to perish under the ruin of Ezekiel 9 {slaughter}; Isaiah 63; and Isaiah 66: 15-17."--2 Shepherd's Rod, pg. 162:3 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   Note in Isa. 66:15 that the Lord comes with His chariots like a "whirlwind, to render His anger." And what could these chariots be but angels in flying saucers? For that is what the Bible says they are!

   "The chariots of God {which move as flying saucers} are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels {in these UFO chariots}: The Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place."--Psalms 68:17 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "The work of separation {slaughter of Ezek. 9} is given to the angels of God {who come to the earth in flying saucers--UFO}, and not committed into the hands of any man."--Testimonies To Ministers, pg. 47:2 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   Therefore, when the angels in their "chariots" (flying saucers) come to slay the wicked in God's church, then those left (144,000), according to their type--Elijah (1SRtr22:4), will be taken first by the flying saucers to the king-dom to stand on the Mt. Zion with the Lamb in the Holy Land, and finally be translated to heaven in a flying saucer as was ancient Elijah (2 Ki. 2:11).

   "There was yet a great work for Elijah to do; and when his work was done, he was not to perish {suffer death} in discouragement and solitude in the wilderness. Not for him the descent into the dust of the earth, but the as-cention in glory, with the convoy of celestial chariots {angels in their flying saucers}, to the throne on high."--Desire of Ages, pg. 301:1; see P.K. 228:1 (boldings, braces added).

   "Moreover, he {Elisha} faithfully ministered to Elijah night and day, and kept an eye on him until the 'flying saucer' {chariot of angels--Ps. 68:17} alighted to pick him up, and until he disappeared from sight (2 Kings 2:9 15)."--2 Timely Greetings, No. 45, pg. 15:5 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "One may be incredulous, another startled, at the thought of Heaven's {angels} having flying saucers. But why? If God has given man knowledge to develop aerial mechanisms, no one can reasonably suppose that Heaven does not have incomparably superior ones. Let us not forget what covered a whole mountain in Elisha's day. (2 Kings 6:17). To be sure, Elisha called them chariots, but if they were not flying saucers of some type, how did they come to earth? It matters not what one calls them, it is what they are, and what they do, that counts....And if the flying saucers are indeed the Lord's, then what else are they come for but to deliver every one {144,000 and those 'with' them--2SC5:8:1} whose names is found written in the book (Dan. 12:1), and to slay those {wicked} who oppress them (Isa. 66:16)?"--White House Recruiter, pgs. 10, 11 (bolds, braces added).

   Thus, the flying saucers of today are angels in their char-iots who are "hurrying to and fro," preparing for the "fulfillment of Ezekiel 9" slaughter when God comes "with His chariots like a whirlwind to slay the wicked in His church without the mark! This mark will protects the saints from the slaughtering angels. So what is this protective mark?


   In terror Elisha's servant sought him with the tidings. 'Alas, my master!' he said, 'how shall we do?' 'Fear not,' was the answer of the prophet; 'for they {angels of God} that be with us are more than they that be with them.'  And then, that the servant might know this for himself, Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray Thee, open his eyes, that he may see.'  'The Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha'. Between the servant of God and the hosts of armed foemen was an encircling band of heavenly angel {in flying saucers}. They had come down in mighty power, not to destroy, not to exact homage, but to encamp round about and minister to {and protect} the Lord's weak and helpless ones {saints}."--Prophets and Kings, pgs. 256, 257 (bold emphasis and the braces added).

   "If our eyes were opened as were the eyes of 'the young man,' we, too, would see an angelic host {angels in chariots_flying saucers} round about the 'Elishas' of today."--5 Tract pg. 93:2 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "The Lord put a mark on him for the safety of Cain, and so long as he had the mark no one should dare kill him. What is the mark?--You may say that the mark is as much as an angel guard present all the time. God set a guarding angel with Cain to protect him from any one's killing hit. Now we come to another marking period, that described in Ezekiel 9....When God places His seal upon the 144,000, then nobody can hurt them {for they are protected by guarding angels in flying saucers}. Do you see that the winds were held by the angels because the servants of God were not as yet sealed--under special protection?"--12 Symbolic Code, No. 2, pgs. 9, 10 (boldings, braces added).

   And what could this "special protection" from God be but a "guarding angel" set by the saints who accept the SRod message and live it (1TG22:26:1)? But any who rejects it is refusing the "special protection" of a "guarding angel" in a flying saucer--the mark "described in Ezekiel 9."

   "Those whose names are found in the book, are 'delivered'. Dan. 12:1. Seeing that the 144,000, the servants of God, are not yet sealed (not yet enclosed, protected, guarded {by angels in flying saucers}, and ready to take their stand with the Lamb on Mount Sion, but rather are still commingled with the tares) the angels are commanded to forestall the clash."--15 Tract, pg. 61:1 (bolds, braces added).

   "The Lord spake also unto me again, saying, Forasmuch as this people (Israel) refuseth the waters of Shiloah (the protective host of heaven) {angels in flying saucers} that go {travel} softly, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son (glory in national government)..."--14 Tract, pg. 31:2 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   The obvious reason why the Lord comes to modern Israel (the S.D.A. church) "with His chariots" "to render His anger with fury," is because they refuse the "waters of Shiloah"--"the protective host of heaven" (angels). They refuse to trust God and "hear ye the Rod" (Mic. 6:9); instead, they trust in man--"glory in national government." As a result, they will join the "opposition" (GC608:2) and lose the "special protection" of an "angel guard" (12SC2:9:1,2).

   "The angel of the Lord {in flying saucers} encampeth round about them {Davidian saints} that fear him, and delivereth them {from the slaughter of Ezekiel 9}."--Psalms 34:7 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   Yes, the angels in flying saucers, the "protective host of heaven," will "encampeth round about" the 144,000 until after the slaughter of Ezek. 9; and then take them to God's kingdom to stand on Mt. Zion with the Lamb in Jeru-salem. They do not have to worry about walking across the ocean floor of the seven seas to the Holy Land, or buying an airplane ticket to get there either; for they already have a way provided--"the chariot of God"--the flying saucers!


  "We are therefore not to worry about a possibility of anyone's hurting the work of God. Neither are we to worry about how we {144,000 Davidians and those 'with' us} are to get to Mount Zion, but are to make sure to be ready to board the chariot of God {unidentified flying object_a flying saucer} when the angel's cry out, 'All aboard'!"--1 Timely Greetings, No. 11, pg. 13:2 (bold emphasis, braces added).

  There it is! Inspiration's irrefutable answer to this most important question: "How will Davidians get to the king-dom?" (1TG11:13:2). It says that all the saints who have the mark_the "angel guard" (12SC2:9,10), will be protected from the slaughter, and be escorted "dryshod" (1T265:1) in flying saucers across the antitypical Red Sea to the kingdom "with-out so much as getting their feet wet" (1TG31:8). And the saints who escape this slaughter are those "of" the 144,000 who will stand on Mt. Zion, and those "with" the 144,000 who will dwell in Jerusalem, as noted below:

"The call, 'Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem,' is applicable to the Laodicean {Seventh-day Adventist} church, the last of the seven churches, and the one which terminates the period of the 'wheat' and the 'tares' commingled, because after she puts on her beautiful garments, 'the unclean shall no more come into' her. Those who will awake to the rousing call, put on strength by separating from the wicked, and put on the beautiful garments by turning to righteousness, are those who will, in the 'latter days,' make up Zion {where those of the 144,000 stand} and Jerusalem {where those 'with' them dwell}--the princes {those of the 144,000} and rulers {those with the 144,000} of the people in the Kingdom-church restored."--4 Answerer Book, pgs. 20, 21 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "All that are found members of the church up to the fulfillment of Ezekiel Nine will either receive the seal and be a part of or with the 144,000, or else be left without the seal and fall {die} under the 'slaughter weapons' of the 'five men' {angels in flying saucers}."--2 Symbolic Code, No. 5, pg. 8:1 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   But the slaughter of Ezekiel 9 does not finish the work of the angels in their flying saucers for the saints. They will continue their work during the time of the Loud Cry.


   One of the phenomenonal signs of the times, awakening men to the startling fact that we are living in the "time of the end," when knowledge shall be increased" (Dan. 12:4); and when the "chariots...shall run like lightnings" (Nah. 2:4), is the modern day airplane. And although the Lord has not mentioned the word "airplane" in the Bible, He has noted them in symbolic language, as He did the flying saucers. Note the symbols in the Bible about the airplane compared to the symbols of the angels in flying saucers:

   "Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke {travelling in the air as do airplanes} and none shall be alone in his appointed time."--Isaiah 14:31 (bold emphasis added).

   "Palestina is to be completely dissolved. Through our study of the Bible we have come to expect the heathen to be dissolved out of Palestina in the Assyrian period. 'Whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke.' Smoke does not creep along the surface of the ground, but travels through the air {like an airplane}, and as the aerial attack {by airplanes} will be waged against her from the north and pass on to the south. It will mean that those who now possess Palestina will lose out."--12 Symbolic Code, No. 1, pg. 23:3 (boldings, braces added).

   "Thou {Gog in the last days} shalt ascend {fly upward} and come like a storm {through the air}, thou shalt be like a cloud {as an airplane flying in the air} to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee,...And thou shalt come up against my people, as a cloud {many airplanes} to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes."--Ezekiel 38:9, 16 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "The expression to 'ascend {fly upward}, and come like a storm {travelling in the air}, suggests that these things are to take place in the time of the airplane."--2 Timely Greetings, No. 4, pg. 17:6 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "Obviously one part of the Gentile nations shall come against the other part that is in the Holy Land, and chase them out to make room for God's people."--2 Timely Greetings, No. 44, pg. 51:1 (bold emphasis added).

   "Plainly, then, on one hand the nations which do not rule Palestine are to arise as 'horns' against those who rule it,..."--1 Timely Greetings, 11:11:2.

   "We see also that there is to be a world war in which Gentiles outside of Palestine and the Gentiles within will be involved."--13 Symbolic Code, No. 1, pg. 6:1.

   "Now you see that Arab, Jew, or Gentile, all will eventually have to move away and give room to God's clean and purified people."--2 Timely Greetings, No. 42, pg. 36:6.

   However, though the enemy comes with "airplanes" for an "aerial attack" against "whole Palestina," to cause "those who now possess Palestina" to "lose out," the enemy will not be permitted to keep the land. For though the "airplanes" will cause the Gentiles to lose the war, God will drive out those who won the war and defend His people.


   "Though the Lord permitted His ancient Kingdom {Israel} to be taken by the gentiles, this Scrip-ture shows that He will soon deliver it. Not only will He deliver His people and Mount Zion, but He will defend them, too."--1 Timely Greetings, No. 33, pgs. 3, 4 (bold emphasiss and braces added).

   "Isa. 31:5,6--'As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing ov-er {flying as do the birds} He will preserve it. Turn ye unto Him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.'"--1 Timely Greetings, No. 33, pg. 4:1 (boldings, braces added).

   Since Inspiration here tells us that God will "deliver His people," by the Lord's "chariots"--flying saucers at the slaughter of Ezekiel 9, as we have already seen (WHR10,11); and since He is also to "defend" and "deliver" "Mount Zion" (Isa. 31:4) when the "smoke"_the "aerial attack" by "airplanes" comes against "Jerusalem" (Isa. 31:5), then the words "as birds flying is Inspiration's way of telling us how the Lord will defend Mount Zion--by flying saucers! For the "birds flying" are not come to dissolve "whole Palestina," as the "smoke" of the modern day "airplanes" are come to do, but to "defend" and "deliver" "Mount Zion;" because the text says: "As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem." (Isa. 31:5).

   Once the Lord has cleared "whole Palestina"--removed the unconverted Arabs, Jews, heathens, and Gentiles, He will set up His Kingdom (Dan. 2:44) in the Holy Land, which is 'the future headquarters of the gospel." (1TG25:6). And then He brings to the Promised Land a great multitude (Rev. 7:9) of people by the effort of His 200 million Spirit-filled gospel workers who travel in the flying saucers of the angels.


   "And now as to what swelled the number of preachers from 144,000 to 200,000,000, the Lord says: 'I will also take of them (of those whom the 144,000 shall bring from 'all nations,' after the fulfillment of Isaiah 66:16--the purification of the church) for priests and for Levites.' Isa. 66:21."--5 Tract, pg. 93:3 (bold emphasis added).

   "And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand {200 million}: and I heard the number of them."--Revelation 9:16 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "Unmistakably, therefore, the 'army' of 'horses' is figurative of the workers who proclaim the final message....So as the horses are representative of gospel workers {200 million saints}, and as they are controlled and guided by their riders (divine beings) {angels}, then the 'horsemen,' it automatically follows, are figurative of the angelic host {in flying saucers} who lead and direct the saints in their work of proclaiming the message and, subsequently, in killing the third part of men who reject it."--5 Tract, pgs. 90, 91 (bold, braces added).

   "Therefore, the angels, the reapers {travelling in their chariots, flying saucers--Isa. 66:15}, who Christ sends forth, include both him who does the sealing, of binding, and those who follow on to do the destroying (Ezek. 9:2, 5, 6), first in the church, then in the world.'--3 Tract, pg. 67:0 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   Therefore, it is clear that angels will come to earth in "chariots," in flying saucers, to slay (Isa. 66:15,16) the tares among God's people--"first in the church" (3TR67:0).  Afterwards they will not only be the "horsemen" (angelic host), who guide and protect the 200 million "horses as they go to preach the last gospel message, but these "horsemen" (angels) also "slay the third part of men" (Rev. 9:15) "in the world" (3TR67:0) who reject that message. The prophet Joel also spoke of these same angels in their flying saucers:

   "The appearance of them is as of horses {200 million gospel workers}; and as horsemen {angels}, so shall they run {travel in flying saucers}. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap {fly in the air}, like the noise of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array "--Joel 2:4, 5 (bolds, braces added).

   Here is God's great "army, for His camp is very great" (Joel 2:11), pictured as "horses," as a "strong people {200 million gospel workers} set in battle array." And the fact that horses must have a rider to guide them in battle when they are "set in battle array," is proof that these "horsemen" in Joel 2:4 are the same "horsemen" (divine beings--angels), spoken of in Rev. 9:16 that guide them during the Loud Cry. Thus, the "horses" of Rev. 9:16, and the "horses" of Joel 2:4 who "run" (in their chariots--Isa. 66:15), as well as the "bay horses" of Zech. 6:3, are to be transported "to and fro through the earth" (Zech. 6:7) by the "horsemen" --the "angelic host" in their flying saucers, because that is how they "run" through the air! Yes, "as horsemen, so shall they run" (Joel 2:4). Therefore, they will not "run" on foot or walk across the seven seas, or traverse through the earth by man's slow means of transportation, but "as horsemen {angels in their flying saucers}, so shall they run"!

   Furthermore, Joel 2:5 proves that God's 200 million "horses" (gospel workers) shall "run" "like the noise of chariots"--flying saucers. They shall "leap" from one place (tops of mountains--Joel 2:5) of the earth to another, and run "to and fro through the earth" (Zech. 6:7), preaching the last gospel message (Rev. 9:17,18) to a dying world during the Loud Cry of the third angel (Rev. 14:9-11), to bring in a great multitude of people from Babylon (Rev. 18:4) to God's kingdom. And the 200 million "horses" (gospel workers) will not have to "walk" (Zech. 6:7) or "run" (Joel 2:4) or "leap" (Joel 2:5) physically, nor depend on man's slow method of transportation to finish the gospel message of the Loud Cry; for all this will be accomplished by Heaven's "incomparably superior" (WHR10:3) mode of transportation--angels in flying saucers. Moreover, these 200 million "horses" will even fly as the eagles!


   "Our subject is found in Isaiah, chapters 40 and 41....This chapter, therefore, as a whole applies to the time of the end, to our time."--2 Timely Greetings, No. 9, pg. 3:1 (bold emphasis added).

   "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they {200 million gospel workers} shall mount up {fly} with wings as eagles; they shall run {in flying saucers of angels}, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."--Isaiah 40:31 (boldings, braces added).

   Yes, the two hundred mil-lion gospel workers "shall mount up" (fly) from the kingdom in Palestine "with wings as eagles" (in the flying saucers of angels) from one end of the earth to the other, as an "ensign to the nations" (Isa. 5:26) to bring in a great multitude of converts to the kingdom during the Loud Cry. And this multitude of people from Babylon will come to the kingdom of God in the Promised Land with speed!


   "And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and behold, they shall come with speed swiftly: None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken: Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels {to travel} like a whirlwind {in flying saucers}."--Isaiah 5:26-28 (bolds, braces added).

   The kingdom will be an "ensign to the nations" (8TR47:1), and the two hundred million "horses" "will hiss"--call out of Babylon (Rev. 18:4)--a great multitude of people, and bring them "with speed swiftly" in chariots (flying saucers) to this kingdom. For the Lord will provide His two hundred million "priests" and "leaders" (12SC2:17,21) with heaven's best transportation available--flying saucers. And their "wheels" of transportation will not be slow and inefficient as that of man, but shall move with incredible "speed" (Isa. 5:26) "like a whirlwind" (Ezek. 1:4)!

   "For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with His {angels in} char-iots {flying saucers that fly} like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury {slaughter of Ezek. 9}, and His rebuke with flames of fire."--Isaiah 66:15 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "'...I looked, and behold, a whirlwind {the moving throne of God--flying sau-cer} came out of the north.' Ezek. 1:4. The fact that the 'whirlwind,' enveloping the throne, 'came' {moved through the air}, says Ezek-iel, shows that this throne, just as the one of Isaiah 6, is a moving one {that flys as a whirlwind}, and that it came to the banks of the river Chebar."--1 Tract, pg. 10:1 (boldings, braces added).

   "And the living creatures {angels} ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning {in flying saucers}." --Ezek. 1:14 (bold emphasis, braces added).

"The bright light going among the living creatures with the swiftness of lightning represents the speed {of angels in flying saucers} with which this work {by 200 million gospel workers who travel with them} will finally go forward to completion. He who slumbers not, who is continually at work for the accomplishment of His designs, can carry forward His great work harmoniously....He can devise ways and means to thwart the purposes of wicked men, and He will bring to confusion the counsels of them that plot mischief against His people."--5 Testimonies, pg. 754:2 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   There will be no need for God's great "army" (200 million gospel workers) to depend on the wheels of man--cars, boats, trains, and jet airplanes; or on the mark of the beast's number 666 so they may buy a ticket to travel; for they shall finish the gospel work like a "whirlwind" travelling in the air. Yes, "with the swiftness of lightning" (5T754:2) as "a flash of lightning" (Ezek. 1:14) by the "speed" of God's incomparably superior" (WHR10:3) flying saucers, shall the "mystery of God" be finished when 200 million "horsemen" (angels) fly with 200 million "horses" (saints) as a cloud.


   "The 60th chapter of Isaiah is a prophecy of the church in the time of the 'latter rain,'..."--1 Shepherd's Rod, pg. 174:1 (bold emphasis added).

   "The chapter {Isa. 60} tells of the ingathering in the time of harvest {during the Loud Cry}. A great multitude composed of all nations, and classes of people, rich and poor alike, from all walks of life; kings and rulers among them, and also the wealth of the Gentiles, shall come {in angel's chariots--flying saucers} to the {kingdom} church."--1 Shepherd's Rod, pg. 152:3 (bold emphasis and braces added).

   "Looking forward to this great ingathering, the proph-et asks the question: 'Who are these that fly as a cloud {angels in flying saucers}, and as the doves {that fly} to their windows? {Isa. 60:8}.--3 Answerer, pg. 75:2 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   During this "great ingathering" (Loud Cry) the world will not have the ad-vanced vehicular air travel like the flying saucers; nor will they know their purpose, because "none of the wicked shall understand" (Dan. 12:10). Thus, being sur-prised at the work of the angels in flying saucers, they will ask what Isaiah asked: "Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?"

   Can you imagine their mixed emotions of surprise, consternation, fear, and anger when they see the flying saucers who "fly as a cloud" and as "doves" (Isa. 60:8), from one end of the earth to the other with 200 million gospel workers? And can you imagine the anger of the wicked when these saints appear everywhere preaching against the image of the beast saying, 'Come out of her, my people" (Rev. 18:4); while they gather a great multitude appointed to death for not receiving the number 666, and carry them in flying saucers with lightning speed safely to the Kingdom?

   Imagine the anger of the nations (Rev. 11:18) who see the angelic horsemen (angels) "slay the third part of men" (Rev. 9:15, 18) for trying to hinder the work of the gospel. And especially imagine their frustration when God's "army" (Joel 2:11) will be such "a great people and a strong" (Joel 2:2), even stronger than Samson (12SC3:5:5), that what ever weapons they use to try and kill God's "bullet proof army (2TG8:20:5), they only fall as "powerless as a straw" (EW34:1); for "no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper" (Isa. 54:17). And picture their frantic efforts to thrust many of the great multitude into prison for refusing the number 666; only to have their purposes defeated when 200 million Samson's break down the prison walls (Joel 2:8,9) and free their captives!

   "They shall run like mighty men {stronger than Sampson}; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded {because they cannot die}. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief....{God's great} army: for His camp is very great."--Joel 2:7-9, 11 (bolds, braces added).

   Imagine how confused they will be when "God's army invincible" (5TR97:3) "shall take hold out of all the languages of the nations" (Zech. 8:23), break the language barrier, and speak every known tongue to preach the gospel "as did the Apostles on Pentecost" (1TG16:29:0). And this will increase the anger of the wicked when they cannot understand other languages as do the 200 million "horses" (gospel workers).

   And imagine the anger of the wicked who suffer the sting of the "tails" (converts--5TR98:1) of the 200 million "horses," when they see a great multitude follow God's great "army" (Joel 2:11) and leave Babylon (Rev. 18:4); while the angels transport them in flying saucers to the kingdom with "lightning" (Ez. 1:14) "speed" (Isa. 5:26). This is how they will finish the Loud Cry up to the close of probationary time, "because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth" (Rom 9:28). What a sting to the conscience of the wicked and a rebuke to their sins! Yet, they are powerless to stop God's great "army" (Joel 2:11) of modern-day Samsons (12SC3:5:5)!

   It would not be too hard to see how the wicked would think the flying saucers are alien ships from outer space, who have come to conquer the earth by killing one third of the wicked (Rev. 9:18). They will see 200 million saints who emerge from these strange air craft, who are stronger than Samson and cannot be killed, because death flees from them (Rev. 9:6). They may think these saints come from another planet posing as earthlings in the guise of so-called "star people," who preach against their Sunday law, while calling people out of Babylon into a place already conquered--God's kingdom set up in the Holy Land. And they will see the saints who can speak all the languages of the earth (1TG16:29:0); and preach strange doctrines from the Bible.

   This is what the wicked could very well think of God's Spirit-filled Elijah's of today, who will travel as a "cloud"(Isa. 60:8) and as a "whirlwind" (Ezek. 1:4), and fly as an "eagle" (Isa. 40:31) with great "speed" (Isa. 5:26) like "lightning" (Ezek. 1:14) in flying saucers! And with such a formidable and unconquerable "army" as this, "a strong people set in battle array" (Joel 2:5), the wicked will be "afraid of the ensign." (Isa. 31:9; 8TR47:1). And even though the wicked will be surprised, afraid, and angry (Rev. 11:18) at God's "bullet proof army" (2TG8:20:5); they will not be allowed to kill them as they did the millions of martyrs during the dark ages (GC59:3). As for the great multitude, they think differently of God's "bulletproof army" and seek His kingdom--the "ensign."

   "And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign {God's kingdom-- 12SC6:18:1} of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek; and his rest shall be glorious."--Isaiah 11:10 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "Since Jacob himself was dead long before Isaiah the prophet wrote, the truth clearly stands out that the Spirit of God in this Scripture {Isa. 49:7} speaks, not personally to Jacob himself, but to his descendants, to those {Davidians} to whom this Truth is made known, and who now bear the responsibility to broadcast it far and wide; plainly, then, the people in whom the Lord is to be glorified, and who again bring Jacob to Him (verses 3,5) are themselves, too, to be made known internationally, they are those who finish the gospel work--the very last. To them the Lord gives a mouth as sharp as a sword."--1 Timely Greetings, No. 45, pgs. 3, 4 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "These are to be His servants during the gathering of the people, the day in which the Lord is glorified. Their being hid, as it were, in his quiver, connotes that their coming into the limelight is to be a complete surprise to all. For the first time the world is to learn that these servants of God are the tail end of Jacob's descendants, His hidden servants, those {saints in flying saucers} who are to gather His people from the isles of the seas."--1 Timely Greetings, No. 46, pg. 4:1 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "Though we {Davidians} may now be either hated or unknown, the day is coming when we shall be comforted. The great men of the earth shall then, so to speak, 'lick up the dust' of our feet {Isa. 49:23}."--1 Timely Greetings, No. 46, pg. 10:1 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "God is going to make His {Davidian} people so glori-ous that kings who now glory in their power will then acknowledge the glory of His people. Consequently, if we are to be among that people, then we are going to be made known in all the world even to all kings at the time when God makes His people known, and our names will be classed forever among the names of the great men of the Scriptures."--12 Symbolic Code, No. 3, pg. 4:1 (bold emphasis and braces added).

   "Right now the Lord is advertising for at least 144,000 {Davidian} life savers, with headquarters on famous Mt. Zion--a greater post than was held by Joseph. Will you be one of them? There are greater opportunities today than ever before. Why not venture into something in which there is no chance taking?"--1 Timely Greetings, No. 2, pg. 27:1 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand {Davidian saints}, having His Father's name written in their foreheads."--Revelation 14:1 (bold emphasis, braces added).

   "Brethren, may you make the good and wise choice, make sure to stand on Mount Zi-on with the Lamb, ready to board heaven's flying saucer (E.W. pgs. 287, 288) {at the second advent}."--White House Recruiter, pg. 74:2 (bold emphasis and braces added).

   And "on each side of the cloudy chariot {a flying saucer} were wings, and beneath it were living wheels: and as the chariot {1Tr40:3} rolled upward, the {living} wheels cried, 'Holy,' and the wings as they moved, cried, 'Holy,' and the retinue of holy angels around the cloud cried, 'Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!' And the saints in the cloud cried, 'Glory! Alleluia!' And the chariot {flying saucer} rolled upward to the Holy City {at Christ's second advent}."--Early Writings, pgs. 287, 288 (boldings, braces added).
