Where did we get
the concept of a
halo in Christian
theology?


 
 
Halos? What halos?
I do think there is evidence for halos in the Bible, but not as envisioned by most artists. Revelation 10:1 describes an angel clothed in clouds and a “rainbow” over his head.The angels that visited Ezekiel had what he described as “…something like an expanse, like the awesome gleam of crystal, extended over their heads.” Ezekiel 1:22 (NAS) That could very possibly be describing a glass-like helmet, something worn by many of our modern-day visitors.

Strange Sounds / Sky Trumpets / The Trumpets of God?

 
  Editor's Comments  
     
  I'm a skeptic by nature, so when I saw, or rather heard, my first "strange sounds" video I thought it would be too easy to create something similar with just about any video or sound editing software and a cell phone. Then I ran across the Canadian television affiliate CTV video featured above. When I heard the Tampa Bay Rays baseball game clip, with the announcers making reference to the "supernatural" noises engulfing the Tropicana Field dome, that clenched it for me. These sounds, I like to call them, "Sky Trumpets," were heard all over eastern Florida that evening. And they continue to crop up around the globe at an alarming rate.  
     
     
  This is a new, legitimate phenomenon. What do these strange, ominous sounds portend?

This "supernatural" sound ocurred on Live National TV! A game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Detroit Tigers at Tropicana Field on a Tuesday evening. Reports of similar sounds came in from all over Florida that night. Google strange sounds Florida, and you'll get the original, unless it gets pulled by the NBL as I suspect it will.

You may recognize the mountains in the background. That's the Pali Na range on Oahu which separates downtown Honolulu from Kaneohe and is on the windward side of the island.

Even though no mention is made in Scripture about a pre-Rapture warning trumpet, there are trumpets that will be used by God in the Last Days. The seven trumpets of the Apocalypse (Revelation) each announce certain catastrophic events. How this all plays out has been the object of conjecture for many years. There are many, I being among them, that see events unfolding today that are without doubt part of an End Times scenario, but do we understand them fully? I think not. It would not be without precedent that we may have missed this one. I think the evidence is mounting, and if Christ is returning as quickly as many are predicting, then this is a very reassuring sign for the believer.

To the nonbeliever, all you have to do is Google the phenomenon and you will quickly find an abundance of obvious fakes, along with ridiculous mockery from pranksters who scoff at anything other than their own small grasp of reality, to which you can cling. It really frosts me when little minions get in on the conversation and muck it up for everyone. I noticed several videos claiming to be from other countries which had identical sound tracks, especially a unique Macaw sounding bird in the background. This may be a purposeful effort to discredit the phenomenon. By whom, who knows? For my take on this, I'll simply share some excerpts from the book Aliens & In-laws. If you'd like to participate in a discussion of this particular phenomenon – along with other subject matter – we're working on our blog and forum currently, so be a little patient. We'll have it online as soon as possible.

 

Excerpt from Aliens & In-laws

The Trumpets of God

The tremendous noise of billions of spacecraft, combined in one gigantic sweep of the planet, will be deafening. Although most modern UFO encounters attest to only a humming or buzzing noise – imagine this noise multiplied millions of times across the entire planet by spacecraft for as far as you can see in any direction. The terrifying sound, in my opinion, is referred to in Scripture as the “final trumpet” announcing Christ’s return. In the original Greek translation, the word “trump,” or trumpet of God, refers to a loud “vibrating or quavering,” a very accurate and graphic description of the sound that would undoubtedly be made by these great numbers of HFOs (Heavenly Flying Objects).

The maneuvering of so many craft near the Earth’s surface will represent quite a feat, but don’t worry, God doesn’t make mistakes. These soldiers and pilots will be well-trained. The spirits of those who died during the Tribulation Period for Christ’s witness will be resurrected to be with Him, and then those living persons who have remained faithful to the Gospels during the Tribulation Period will be gathered up, unharmed, but the wicked shall be destroyed. That’s a promise from God:

 

I THESSALONIANS 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep [dead], that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14   For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

I CORINTHIANS 15:51   Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

52   In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

53    For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

I THESSALONIANS 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the LORD, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the LORD [i.e. after the pre-tribulation Rapture] shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16   For the LORD himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17   Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the LORD in the air: and so shall we ever be with the LORD.

18   Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

An Eerie Light Encompasses the Earth

As the armada nears the Earth’s surface, their sheer numbers will cause the sun and moon to be blocked out, but the glow of the HFOs themselves will give off an eerie light so that even the nighttime will be dimly lit:

 

 


 

ZECHARIAH 14:6 And it shall come to pass that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

The Shofar or Ram's Horn of Ancient Israel

 
 
     
» Shofar Hebrew for "Trumpet" Made from a ram's horn that has been un-twisted
The Four Traditional Shofar Trumpet Blasts:  
1. Tekiah Hebrew for "Blast" A single long blast to praise God also an awakening blast.

2. Shevarim Hebrew for "Broken" True repentance is only possible when someone is broken before God. It consists of three short blasts symbollic of the trinity.

3. Teruah Hebrew for "Alarm" To alert the hearer to danger or to announce an event. It's a series of 9 short blasts.
     
4. Tekiah Gedola Hebrew for "Last Trumpet"
or "Great Blast"
This is the loudest of the shofar blasts and will be used to announce the return of Jesus Christ for His final judgement. It is one long blast beginning with a low pitch and followed by a change in several octaves to a high pitch.

I've listened to these Sky Trumpet sounds many times, and am left with one conclusion: most of them sound like the Tekiah Gedola, with its low-to-high pitch resonance. They certainly aren't a series of quick blasts or the three sounds of Shevarim. What does that mean? The Last Trumpet in the book of Revelation is called the Great 7th Trumpet which is heard at Christ's return to setup His millennial reign on Earth. How much time left? None!

The Rapture

 
 

This event is described as the time when Christ will return for His Church (His faithful followers) so that they may escape the terrible catastrophies that befall the wicked inhabitants of the Earth. The word “Rapture” is not mentioned in Scripture in its modern nomenclature, but this is the title used by many Bible students today to describe this great “catching away” of the Church. The actuality of an all-out invasion on mankind by the heavenly realm, however, is mentioned in Scripture in many places. The chronological time frame of the catching away of the Church has been debated in many quarters, but I see the event clearly in Scripture. It must happen prior to the seven year Tribulation Period in order for the following passage to have validity. Jesus said:

 

ST. LUKE 21:34   “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35   “For as a snare it shall come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

36   “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” [ Underlines added for emphasis ]

 
Clearly, those who are judged worthy shall escape the Tribulation curses. The Tribulation Period is described as such a destructive time that it is impossible to imagine Christians living in its midst and not recognizing it as such. In order for a people to be caught by surprise, the time preceding the Rapture must be one of relative peace and well-being. Isaiah described events surrounding the Rapture of the Church in the following passage:
 


ISAIAH 5:26   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:

27   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:

[ Underlines added for emphasis ]
* i.e. from the heavens, or what we call outer space.

 

The angels of heaven will come swiftly and they will "hiss" from very far away, while still in deep space "from the end of the earth". A massive flotilla of HFOs would likely produce some kind of electromagnetic interference and perhaps infrared signals (and even more), which would register as a hissing noise on earth's detection devices such as the CCDs in our telescopes measuring higher frequencies such as infrared light, gamma rays or x-rays, and with radio dishes such as S.E.T.I. (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) which are "listening" for anything unusual from space, primarily in the lower radio wave spectra.

Verse 27 tells us that the angel's invasion and confrontation with mankind will be without much effort because the normal stresses of war won't effect them. They won't even break a shoelace or mess up their other-worldly battle kicks!
