SPACEMEN IN THE BIBLE
TWO SPACEMEN -
THE PROPHET ENOCH and THE PROPHET ELIJAH.
The bible tells us that God took away the Prophet Enoch from Planet Earth. The Book of Hebrews specifically elaborates upon this, as Enoch is an important prophet, as Jude (commonly believed to be the physical brother of Jesus) mentions an End Time prophecy by him.
The same thing happened to the prophet Elijah, who was taken up in a chariot of fire.
In the ascension into heaven Jesus appears to have done the same thing.
Many people think in error all 3 made the same journey. But this in fact is not so.
The bible tells us there are 3 heavens
Heaven 1 = The Sky
Heaven 2 = outerspace
Heaven 3 = the dwelling place of God and his angels (and the maling place of New Jerusalem, the ascends later onto a newly created Earth)
However Jesus said: "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven." John 3:13
This almost certainly means that Enoch and Elijah did not go to the 3rd Heaven. They went up into the 2nd Heaven, outserspace.
Many Christians believe that the prophet Elijah will return from outerspace, by the power of God, in order to complete his mission on Earth, as described in two prophecies, on in Revelation chapter 11, and one in Malachi chapter 4.
This leads to another astounding conclusion. Elijah (if this is true) has already become a born again believer in Jesus. This leads to another possible logical conclusion - that is, if this is so, it is likely Jesus visited Elijah and Enoch on a planet somewhere in outserspace before he finally went on to the 3rd Heaven.
Jesus spoke to Elijah on the mount of transfiguration.
For the reasons given, as Elijah and Enoch both stayed in outerspace, presumably on a planet, they can be described as the furst human spacemen, before Uri Gagarin or the Apollo Moon mission. Another startling conclusion might be that these two men are now fed by angels, but that this other planet or place has LIFE on it, like fruit trees and even maybe animals to hunt and to eat, unknown to us on Earth??
All this is speculation, I have no doctrine on this myself. Indeed the subject is linked with Revelation chapter 11 also, where some people might believe it is Elijah and Enoch preaching. This seems to me to be very unlikely, and that the classic Christian interpretation of the return of Elijah, that it was fulfilled in John the Baptist, who moved in the spirit and power of Elijah, is most likely to be true.
