“Abraham Entertains 3 Extraterrestrials”

Genesis 18

Abraham + 3 

Genesis 18 is the story of 3 visitors described as “the Lord revealed himself.”  Abraham is sitting at the door of his tent when he sees 3 men standing at a distance from him.  He runs to them, bowed himself to the ground, and said, “O Lord, if now I have found mercy in thy sight, do not pass away from thy servant.  Let me bring a little water and wash your feet and rest yourselves under the tree.  And a morsel of bread and sustain your hearts; after that you shall go on your way, since you have come to your servant.  And they said, ‘So do as you have said.’”  (Genesis 18:1-33)

I am reminded of my own and thousands of others’ meditative experiences.  There are three different types of beings that may appear in meditation or before our physical eyes:  angels, extraterrestrials, and Ascended Masters.  During his transfiguration, Jesus spoke with Ascended Masters Elijah and Moses; his disciples could see and recognize them. (Mark 9:1-13)  Earth humans have experienced interactions with all three groups for eons.

Abraham and Sarah, his wife, hurriedly prepare a meal of beef, cow’s milk, butter, and bread.  To wash the feet and feed a stranger passing by was an ancient Middle Eastern custom.  However, there are several indications within the story that these 3 men were not Earth humans.

1.  Abraham recognized them immediately as arriving on a Divine Mission.

2.  Abraham bows down to them.

3.  Abraham calls them “Lord.”

4.  Abraham offers them an opportunity to rest.

5.  Abraham washes their feet.

6.  Abraham feeds them.

Had they been angels, Abraham would have treated them differently.  Also, scripture tends to introduce an angel into the story by announcing an angel of the Lord appeared.  Abraham recognized the 3 men as more physical-like beings–extraterrestrials … he washed their feet, allowed them to rest, and fed them.  Had they been angels, Abraham would not have been concerned over their bodily needs.  Had they been one of Earth’s Ascended Masters, Abraham most likely would have recognized them as the disciples recognized Moses and Elijah during Jesus’ transfiguration.

Although angels may possess the ability to shift shape, I do not recall biblical stories of them doing so—men appeared as men; angels appeared as angels;[i] and Ascended Masters appeared as themselves.

In ancient times, communication between Earth humans and angels, extraterrestrials, and Ascended Masters was common and accepted as a fact of life, while at the same time, each group was honored and known to be on a Divine Mission.  Extraterrestrials that appear on Earth are much more advanced than Earth humans; in ancient times, they were frequently referred to by the people as “gods.”  Thus, Abraham’s display of reverence for them.

As the story unfolds, we see that the 3 extraterrestrials had appeared to Abraham for a purpose—to explain how the Divine Plan was to unfold in his and Sarah’s lives.  Abraham was to become the Father of a great nation.

In 2013, Earth humans are experiencing close contact with the Angelic Kingdom, Extraterrestrials, and Earth’s Ascended Masters for the same reason Abraham experienced them—to explain the Divine Plan regarding Gaia’s[ii] ascension taking all Earth humans who so desire with her.

Communication between all of Mother/Father God’s children never ceases.  Those big brothers and sisters who have gone before us … those who have evolved to a much greater extent than have Earth humans … and the Angelic Kingdom:  all act as messengers from our Heavenly Parents to explain major changes approaching our world.

We are never left alone and ignorant of future shifts within our earthly and cosmic histories.  In the very near future, Earth humans will once more reunite with ALL of our family:  Star family (extraterrestrials); Ascended Masters with whom many of us have shared prior incarnations; and the Angelic Kingdom, who have guarded over us while we sojourned on Earth’s now rapidly disappearing plane of duality.  Ascension = Earth humans’ full consciousness of each of these groups.

Presently, we are seeing our Star brothers and sisters’ space ships hovering in the distance skies … waiting for us to recognize them and run to meet them … to welcome them on our planet … to discuss and assist each other with the unfolding of the Divine Plan for Gaia and her inhabitants!  They come in love, just as the 3 extraterrestrials came to Abraham. 















[i]   Note that in Genesis 19:1, a distinction is made:  “And there came two angels….”

[ii]   Gaia = the name of the great being whose physical body is Earth.


The stage of the illusion in which you seem to be presently contained is coming to an end

January 16, 2013 by John Smallman



You truly are on the verge of enormous changes in the ways you experience life, and those changes will be well worth the long wait that you have been undergoing. The energy field that envelops the planet and all the sentient life forms that she supports — the field of divine Love — has greatly intensified and strengthened over the last few weeks of Earth time, and every day the numbers of you opening your hearts to accept its embrace increases exponentially. Tremendous progress has been made in bringing humanity closer to wakefulness due to your determination and your intent to do your Father’s Will by offering only love in all your human interactions.  You do not always succeed, but you always intend to succeed, and it is your intent that changes the world.

Do not judge yourselves when it seems to you that your intent has failed, that you have dropped your focus and become distracted, or been overwhelmed by anger brought on by in-your-face issues and emotions, or by the actions or inactions of others.  That is all part of the ego’s plan to entangle you in the illusion so that you forget that you are spiritual beings of immense power, and consequently it seems that you have lost the ability to make contact with your divine aspect.  Instead, all these unpleasant beguilements have become very important to you and appear to demand your undivided attention because – your ego would have you believe – you yourselves are personally responsible for changing people who are behaving insanely, or indeed for changing the world, by drawing people’s attention to their faults and inadequacies which are obviously the underlying cause of so many terrestrial problems.

Just be aware of what has happened: you have become entangled (temporarily!) in the snares and confusions with which the illusion attempts to divert you from your spiritual path.  Do not judge yourselves or others, and instead release the hoards of “shoulds” and “musts” that are so successfully holding your attention, and relax back into your natural non-egoic state of peace at the true center of your being whence you can send love and compassion to all, including yourselves.

You are all divine beings having an illusory experience — and remember that illusions do not last.  They are ephemeral happenings or events, even though they feel intensely real while you are undergoing them.  The stage of the illusion in which you seem to be presently contained is coming to an end.  There will be continuing disturbances as it disintegrates, and some of them will be painful for some of you, but when compared to the wars and plagues, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions of earlier times their consequences will be far more short-lived.

Change is messy, and it is often difficult and unsettling, but out of its apparent chaos wonders will be created that will astound and delight you.  You have been bringing it about so that the planet and all her myriad life forms can be renewed and reinvigorated by the healing, compassionate, and loving energies that you are engaging with daily.  They have reached out to you from the encircling, divine energy field which offers succor to all who ask for it and who allow themselves to open their hearts to receive it.

The task of holding the Light or showing the way has become more intense recently so that it seems even tougher and more demanding than ever.  That is because you are all allowing the far more powerful energies, which arrived with the great energy shift that embraced the planet, to pour through you to assist all the sentient life forms whose survival and renewal, like hers, is an enormous but inspiring responsibility that you have so willingly agreed to be a part of.  It is a vast responsibility and you are strong enough and capable enough to do your bit. And you cannot fail because you are constantly, divinely supported in your intent.

Do not forget that you are divinely assisted in every moment even if you cannot feel it or sense it.  You are never left alone to fend for yourselves, but are always lovingly watched over and given the help and guidance that you need and will accept.  Open your hearts to receive the divine inundation of Love that is your heritage and your birthright, and complete your journey home.

Your loving brother, Jesus.

To awaken is simply to release yourselves from the bondage of time

01/16/2013 by John Smallman


Humanity’s journey has been long and arduous, and although most of you have very little sense of it, you are very close to awakening.  Time is a strange concept and yet it is an essential part of your illusory reality.  It is one of its main foundations, and the more you can focus on and live in the ever-present now moment, the more effectively you can cooperate in dissolving time and the illusion.  As you know, you have never left your Father’s side, His eternal Presence, and to awaken is simply to release yourselves from the bondage of time and all the other unhappy aspects of the illusion in which you have seemingly become ensnared.

You have unlimited assistance available to you just for the asking whenever you choose to pay full attention to the present moment, the only real time.  For much of your lives you are distracted by the “outside world” – other people, places, activities, problems that absolutely insist that you pay attention – when the “real world” is the one within.  Not the one of anxieties, concerns, suffering, and judgments, but the one of total peace and contentment that you can access and enjoy when you cease striving to reason out solutions to the many problems or issues which seem to define who you are or why you exist.

You can only find yourselves by letting go of your logical mind and then allowing the thoughts that come to mind to flow through without your engaging with them. Doing that does bring a sense of relief and peace that you cannot find anywhere else — a sense of space, of freedom, and of security, because you are effectively floating in the arms of Love, in the Presence of God.  This kind of experience or brief awakening gives you the strength and courage to face and learn the lessons with which the illusion continuously presents you.

You do of course live and experience life in the illusion and so you do have to deal with the issues and problems with which it presents you, but try to do that in the moment instead of dwelling endlessly on issues which cannot be resolved until some future event or time because you do not at present have the necessary information.  When you have the required information then the issue can be resolved; until then enjoy the inspiring moments that life is constantly offering you if you will open your eyes to see.

Life lived to the fullest extent possible is inspiring, uplifting, and very rewarding. Nevertheless, many times you switch off your awareness of it and drift away into worry and anxiety about issues that, in the present moment, you can do nothing about.  Then life passes you by while you ignore it and you fill your minds with trivia that cause you only pain and suffering.  Yes, of course you have all suffered, maybe you are suffering right now — but why?  Are you, in this moment, in pain.  Yes, of course some of you are, but most of you are not, and for those, your suffering is very likely self-imposed because you are thinking or worrying about issues that in this moment you can do nothing positive or meaningful to resolve, and you are missing the smile of an infant, the beauty of falling snow and the peaceful contentment that awareness of wonders like that provide.

I am not disparaging or discounting the pain and suffering that many are truly experiencing; I am just trying to draw your attention to things of beauty and wonder that you miss when you let go of your awareness.  Letting go of awareness is shutting yourselves off from life and all the delights that it offers in every moment.  Even if you are in pain, the smile of a loved one or the colors of a sunset can uplift you into a moment of rapture.

The illusion wants your attention; in fact it demands your attention because it relies on your attention to support and maintain it.  If you can be in the world but not of it, you relieve yourselves of an enormous burden because you cease to feel responsible for correcting it, or for helping to destroy the evil in it.  Evil is a lack of love, it is an act of desperation by one or numbers of people who feel lost, alone, unloved and unlovable, who, in great suffering (often denied or deeply buried within them), try to escape from themselves by ill-treating others.  Of course it does not work, so they may try harder until it becomes obsessive.

Sometimes it becomes necessary to restrain or contain those who would hurt others; at other times it is impossible because they apparently have power and authority to inflict pain and punishment without restraint.  But they can only be healed by love.  And if they are severely damaged it can take a very long time.

Everyone on Earth is here to learn lessons personally selected or chosen, and to help everyone else to see the illusion for what it is.  There is really only one lesson, despite the innumerable forms in which it can be and is presented, and that is to accept the Love that your Father offers you constantly, and to be a channel, a conduit through which that Love passes to all with whom you interact so that a spontaneous and constant flow of Love envelops and embraces you all.

Free will can seem at times like a spanner in the works because it allows you to reject Love, to hide from It, to refuse to believe that such a thing exists.  But It is all that exists; It is the flow of God amongst his beloved children, seeking only to embrace them and see them peaceful, content, and happy, always.  Yes, Love is the lesson, and all will learn it.  However, free will allows each to decide when the moment is right, and, notwithstanding the denial of Love to which many have attached themselves, there will come a moment when even the most ardent refuseniks will open themselves to the Love that constantly surrounds them.

All are saved and will return Home — it is just a question of timing.  Open yourselves to Love now, in this very moment, if you have not already done so, because further delay is most definitely not in your best interest, especially when you consider that there is nothing else, only nothingness, illusion, whereas Love is everything.

With so very much love, Saul.
