The Fall of the
Silver Bridge and Rise of Israel,
Angelic Judgments, UFO's, and Demon
The rise of
Israel to power in the 1967 Six-Day War set the stage for
the Tribulation and War of Armageddon. The war was
heralded by hundreds of UFO sightings, terror from the giant
Mothman demon, and a host of demon attacks prior to the
collapse of the Silver Bridge in Mount Pleasant, West
Virginia. The bridge collapse after 39 years was
followed by the collapse of the I-35W Mississippi River
bridge in Minneapolis. Both bridges had a life of 39
years, and both bridges collapsed at the same time, 5:05
PM. The bridges made of steel and concrete symbolized
the breaking of the feet of clay of the image in
Nebuchadnezzar's dream, pointing to the destruction of the
Revived Roman Empire at the Second Advent.

The Rise of Israel
and Fall of Bridges
Continued Egyptian provocation of Israel led to the
Six-Day War in which Israel conquered the
West Bank, Gaza Strip, Sinai Peninsula, and Golan Heights from
June 5-10, 1967. In the United Nations peace negotiations
that followed Israel gave up the Sinai Peninsula. With
expanded borders from the victory of the Six-Day War Israel became
a major power in the Middle East. With the rise of Israel
the stage was set for the coming Tribulation
and War of
sudden success of Israel in defeating Egypt, Syria, and Jordan was
evidence of spiritual intervention. The angels were waging
war just as in the Book of Revelation. What happened on the
ground was the result of the Angelic Conflict between the Elect
Angels of God and the Fallen Angels of Satan. Under the
decree of God, the Elect Angels defeated the Fallen Angels who
defended Egypt, Syria, and Jordan.
The rise of Israel in the Six-Day War was one of the major events
of history to prepare the World Stage for the Tribulation.12
The Angelic Conflict was world-wide, not just in the Middle
East. In 1966 there were hundreds of sightings of
Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO's) in West Virginia. These
UFO's were revelations of demonic military operations against
Elect Angels like the UFO's that Elisha saw in his conflict with
the Syrians (2 Ki 6:17). The angelic warfare overhead drives
human military conflict on the ground.
UFO sighting in West Virginia in 1966 and 1967 attracted
world-wide attention. Many journalists and photographers
descended on Point Pleasant, West Virginia to document the events.
Among them was John Keel, who published The Mothman Prophecies
about them in 1975. The demons associated with the UFO's
communicated with people like Keel and made predictions of death
and destruction. The demon spirits made soothsayers out of
On November 12, 1966 a giant demon with red glowing eyes began to
appear and strike terror into the hearts of people. The
demon was dubbed by newspapers, "the Mothman." The demon was
described as a brown or gray creature resembling a man, six or
seven feet tall with eight to ten foot wings, no neck, large
teeth, and red glowing eyes. Those who could see the demon
were terrorized by it and thereafter were open to demonic
communication. Journalists and paranormal investigators
flocked to get a glimpse of the Mothman, but those who saw it
wished they never did. Many turned to drugs and alcohol
because of the fear, and marriages ended when people could no
longer cope and bear responsibility.4
soothsayer demons warned John Keel, Mary Hyre (a newspaper
reporter), and others of an impending disaster. However,
they never understood the warning until the disaster struck.
On December 15, 1967 at 5:05 PM EST (2205 GMT) the Silver Bridge
across the Ohio River in Point Pleasant, West Virginia collapsed
during rush hour and killed 46 people. The bridge collapse
was a nightmare for local residents as bodies were
recovered. After the bridge collapsed the Mothman and UFO
sightings effectively ended.
This was a turbulent time in US and world history. It was
the height of the Cold War with the USSR. The US was at war
in Vietnam, and there were racial riots of the Civil Rights
Movement and peace protests over the Vietnam War at home.
Lyndon Johnson was President of the US, and Leonid Brezhnev was
leader of the USSR. Martin Luther King was the leader of the
Civil Rights Movement. In the angelic paradigm he was a
false teacher and symbol of the False
Prophet of Israel in the Tribulation (Rev 13:11-14;
16:13). Brezhnev symbolized the King of
the North. West Virginia symbolizes the prison system
in the Client Nation Model, and Ohio across the river symbolizes
Naphtali, the doe and peace. So the demonic activity in West
Virginia coincided with the racial riots (lawlessness), and the
bridge collapse was associated with the peace protests.
turbulence of the 60's ended, and the Tribulation did not
immediately occur. Bridge inspection laws were passed so
that no other bridges would collapse. However, another
bridge did collapse. The I-35W
Mississippi River bridge in Minneapolis collapsed in 2007
after becoming operational in November 1967 and having a life of
39 years. It collapsed at 5:05 PM CST (6:05 CDT, 2305 GMT)
on August 1. The collapse of the bridge was the herald of
the collapse of the subprime mortgage market in the US that led to
a recession and the World Financial Crisis of 2007-2008.
The collapse of two bridges each with a life of 39 years and each
collapsing at 5:05 local (non-daylight saving) time, demands an
explanation. The bridge collapses were part of God's
Sovereign Design of history. So they have meaning in the
Spiritual realm. God decreed their construction and
collapse. The Elect Angels oversaw the design and
construction and caused their collapse at the precise time.
Even though the UFO activity in Point Pleasant was demonic, the
bridge collapse was orchestrated by Elect Angels. It was not
an accident, but a Divine Judgment. The number 39 is for the
Sin Leading to
Death. The span of life of the bridges was 80 years,
corresponding to four generations and the Four Generation
Curse. The time, 5:05 PM, is the number for a giant
(5). The Mothman demon was a giant, like Goliath (1 Sam
A bridge is a crossover from one paradigm to another. After
leaving Egypt, Israel had two crossings. They crossed the
Red Sea over a land bridge, and they crossed the Jordan River over
another land bridge. Of course, the land bridges were also
like straits. The crossing of the Red Sea symbolized
Salvation and freedom from Egypt, the symbol of the world.
Pharaoh's Army, however, was drowned in the Red Sea, corresponding
to the collapse of the first bridge. The crossing of the
Jordan symbolized entrance into the Promised Land, corresponding
to Heaven and Spiritual Maturity. However, before crossing
the Jordan all those who were 20 and up except Caleb and Joshua
died in the wilderness (Nu 14:22-38; Jude 1:5). The Promised
Land was a place of prosperity.
Thus, the collapse of the first bridge in the US symbolized the
death of the Egyptians, corresponding to the defeat of Egypt in
the Six-Day War. The only way to support Israel for most
people in the US was spiritually. Therefore, those who
lacked Positional Sanctification at Salvation were identified with
Egypt and the world. The world corresponds to Satan and his
Cosmic System (with demon activity in West Virginia). The
collapse of the second bridge in the US symbolized failure to
attain Spiritual Maturity and enter the Promised Land. This
corresponded to loss of prosperity, which was the herald of the US
recession that led to the World Financial Crisis of 2007-2008.
Bridges also symbolize the man and woman in Marriage
Culture. The bridge symbolizes the husband, and the water
underneath symbolizes the wife. The collapse of a bridge
into the water symbolizes the destruction of Marriage and death of
the partners. Those who saw the Mothman demon had their
marriages broken up and some died. The failure of Marriage
due to Spiritual immaturity leads to death under the Four
Generation Curse. Those who failed to mature and overcome
the demon attack fell under the Four Generation Curse.
The two bridges that collapsed in the US had a steel
superstructure and concrete pilings, corresponding to the feet of
clay of the image in Nebuchadnezzar's dream. The bridges symbolized
the Revived Roman Empire with feet of clay (Dan 2:41-42,
43). The collapse of the bridges symbolizes the destruction
of the Revived Roman Empire by the stone "cut out without hands"
(Dan 2:34, Jesus Christ) at the Second Advent.
Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO's) are mysterious
images that appear for which there is no apparent rational
explanation. Sometimes the mystery can be solved, and
sometimes it is illusive. Optical illusions may have a
rational explanation. Camera lenses may reflect strange
images or ghosts. Pictures made with a camera using a flash
in a dark room will often show orbs of light that are nothing more
than reflections from shiny surfaces. Shaking a cloth in
front of a camera lens can produces orbs from dust
particles. Pictures made with a camera can produce strange
sights that can often be explained.
UFO's may also be seen by people without the intervention of a
camera or optical device. In fact people can often see
strange objects, lights, or spaceships with their eyes closed or
open. Some in a group may see the objects and some may
not. Such UFO's may be produced by Elect or Fallen
Angels. Elisha saw a military formation of such UFO's in his conflict with the Syrians (2 Ki
6:17). The Lord Jesus Christ flies in a UFO as described
by Ezekiel, and Elijah was taken up by a UFO to
Heaven (2 Ki 2:11). The UFO's seen by Elisha were
described as "chariots of fire." They resembled war
The appearance of UFO's has adapted to the culture during the
course of history. The ancient Chinese called lights in
the sky "dragon tracks" because the lights were apparently
accompanied by sightings of fearsome demons.4
In Europe and North America among the Indians these lights were
accompanied by little people that were a nuisance. In
witchcraft lore the lights were associated with witches on
brooms. Vampire sightings were similar. In 1947 from
May to August a flurry of UFO sightings occurred in the US in
which the UFO's were shaped like metallic discs, or flying
saucers. Another flurry of sightings occurred in Vietnam
in 1968-69 during the Vietnam war.
UFO's were often accompanied by the appearance of human-like or
animal-like creatures. Some looked human and wore clothes
like people. Some could even talk. Others used only
telepathy. Some resembled animals, such as birds, bats, or
reptiles. Whether human or animal-like these creatures
match the description of angels and demons in the Bible.
Angels and demons can appear to be normal people. Abraham
entertained angels and gave them food to eat (Gen
18:1-15). Two of the angels were on their way to destroy
Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen 18:16-33). Angels can materialize
or dematerialize. They can appear and feel physical, but
then they can just melt away.
Therefore, it is safe to say that most UFO's seen by man are
simply demons or demon productions.6 To see
them requires demon contact. Once the contact is made the
person has an open window in the soul for them. The demons
can continue to haunt, harass, and make life miserable.
The only solution is God's solution in Grace.5
People contacted by
UFO's have the same symptoms as people under demon influence or
demon possession.4,6 The creatures that
accompany UFO's are not Extra Terrestrials (ET's). They do
not live on other galaxies. They live on planet Earth with
Satan their leader. They are not here to help people but
to use them, enslave them, and take them to Hell. They are
the enemies of God, the Elect Angels, and Christians. They
are also the enemies of Israel.
Virginia UFO's and Demons
In March 1966 a housewife in
Point Pleasant, West Virginia saw a UFO hovering above a school
playground. It looked like a "glistening metal disk."4
A door was open and a man was standing outside in midair. He
had a "silvery skin-tight costume," and he had "very long silvery
hair."4 Her children came out of the school and
got in the car, and when she looked back up, it had
disappeared. There were numerous sightings of UFO's around
Point Pleasant during the summer of 1966, but they weren't
reported to the police. They were appearing in Utah,
however, and people were reporting them.
On November 2, 1966 two workmen were driving home when they
encountered a UFO shaped like a stovepipe near Parkersburg,
West Virginia on Interstate 77. The craft descended in front
of them, and they stopped. A normal looking man got out and
came over to them. He was smiling
and wearing a black coat. He kept his arms folded. He
asked the men "who they were, where they
were from, where they were going, and what time was it? Then
he strolled back to the dark cylinder and it rose quickly into the
chill, drizzling sky."4 Afterward one of the men,
who lived in Point Pleasant, had insomnia, which is typical of
people who have anxiety due to demon influence. When he did
sleep, he had strange nightmares. Then he began to drink.
The same thing happened to another traveler on the same road the
same night. He told his story to the police.
On November 12, 1966 Kenneth Duncan was digging a grave with four
other men in Clendenin, West Virginia when he saw something that
"looked like a brown human being" buzz by. He said, "It was
gliding through the trees and was in sight for about a
minute." None of the other men saw it.8
Duncan didn't come forward with his story until after the next
sighting of the creature. November 12 is the birthday of Charles
On November 15, 1966 two young couples, Roger
and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette, were out driving
in the TNT area near Point Pleasant near midnight when they saw a
large gray creature with eyes that glowed red in the
headlights. It was like a "large
flying man with ten-foot wings."9 The creature
frightened them and hovered over their 1957 Chevy as they raced
back into town at speeds of over 100 mph. According to Linda
Scarberry, the wings of the creature kept hitting the car.15
The creature disappeared when they reached the city lights.
They stopped at Tiny's Diner to decide what to do and then went to
the court house and reported the incident to the sheriff.11
They were questioned in separate rooms and reports were
filed. The TNT area is an old, deserted World War II
The creature was later dubbed by the press the "Mothman."
Those who saw it were plagued by fear and turned to drugs and
alcohol. They couldn't cope, and their marriages broke
up. Roger and Linda Scarberry were living in a house trailer
at the time.
In the week that followed they were
suddenly plagued by strange sounds around the trailer late at
night. Beeps and loud garbled noises like a speeded-up
phonograph record. They could not locate the source of the
sounds outside or inside the trailer.4
Full of fear they left and moved into the basement
apartment of Linda's parents, the McDaniels.
Linda sued Roger for a divorce on May 27, 1967. The same
thing happened to many of those who saw the Mothman. After
the divorces many would marry other contactees. Others had
nervous breakdowns and endured long periods of hospitalization.
Some died within six months after seeing the creature, and
others died within ten years. The local journalist, Mary Hyre died
in 1970 at age 54. Ivan T. Sanderson died in 1973.4
After seeing the Mothman demon, these people were still under its
influence. The demon was able to break up marriages and to
entice others into marriage. The people who saw the demon
had no spiritual training and lacked the fundamental spiritual
power to ward off the demon.
Over one hundred people saw the Mothman demon in 1966-67. As
word circulated in the national press, hundreds of people
descended on Point Pleasant to see the demon and the UFO's.
Those who saw the Mothman agreed on the basic points. "It was gray, apparently featherless, as large—or
larger—than a big man, had a wingspread of about ten feet, took
off straight up like a helicopter, and did not flap its wings in
flight. Its face was a puzzle. No one could describe it. The two
red eyes dominated it."4
The Mothman demon was typical of the same type creature that has
appeared many times in history in conjunction with UFO's. He
appeared in Brooklyn, New York in 1877-80. In India he was
the giant bird of mythology known as the Garuda.
North American Indians called him the Thunderbird because he was
accompanied by loud noises, buzzes, and rumbles. The Dakota
Indians called him Piasa, a creature with "terrifying red
eyes and a long tail."4
On April 9, 1948 two laundry workers in Longview, Washington said
they saw three "birdmen" circling at 250 feet. In May 1981 a
birdman buzzed a New York pilot in his plane. On May 21,
1973 men in the woods near Kristianstad, Sweden saw a huge black
bird. One tried to take a picture, but the film
jammed. In the Tribulation a giant eagle flying in midheaven
will be a herald of doom of the remaining three Trumpet Judgments
(Rev 8:13). The eagle symbolizes an Elect Throne Angel.
The Mothman demon, like the other birdman demons, was a giant
demon who appeared as a herald accompanying an army of
UFO's. The giant demon was out to terrorize or impress
people just as Goliath standing before the Philistine Army as
their champion (1 Sam 17:4, 23). Goliath was like the mighty
men of old before the Flood.
The Nephilim were half-angel and half-man
hybrids. They were destroyed in the Flood and don't exist
anymore in spite of what demon-possessed people say (2 Pet 2:4, 5;
Jude 1:6). The UFO's and Mothman demon in West Virginia were
heralds of a major event in world history - the June 5-10, 1967
Israeli Six-Day War that marked the rise of Israel in preparation
for the Tribulation. Satan and his demons were trying to
destroy Israel with Egypt and its allies. The US was the
ally of Israel and therefore the enemy of Satan. The demons
were putting on a show of force in West Virginia, but they were
defeated by the Grace of God in His unconditional promises to
Israel. Egypt and its allies, Syria and Jordan, were
The Nephilim (giants)
were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the
sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore
children to them. Those were the mighty men (heroes)
who from ancient times were the men of renown.
The UFO activity and Mothman demon also symbolized the attack of
Satan as the man of lawlessness upon the United States in the
racial riots of the Civil Rights Movement and the peace protests
of the Vietnam War. In the Client Nation model West Virginia
symbolizes the prison system for holding those who were rebelling
against the nation. The UFO activity and Mothman sightings
effectively ended following the collapse of the Silver Bridge
across the Ohio River in Point Pleasant on December 15, 1967.
Those who came in contact with the UFO's and Mothman became
victims of demon attacks and demon influence. They received
future visitations, perceived telepathic (spiritual) messages,
heard voices, and received prophecies of disasters that came
true. They were also instructed in the Satanic lies of
doctrines of demons (1 Tim 4:1). They were also deceived and
played. The multiple personality demon could mimic the voice
of other people and deceive even close friends. Not all
prophecies came true, and some only came half true.
The demons prophesied a major electrical failure over a large part
of the United States that was to occur when the President threw
the switch to light the Christmas Tree in Washington DC on
December 15, 1967. John Keel received this prophecy by one
of his familiar spirit demons (Apol, pronounced Apple) and was
also told there would be a disaster at a factory on the Ohio River
at the time. He thought it could be a chemical plant near
Point Pleasant or the Naval Base. So he wrote Mary Hyre from
New York to warn her of potential danger on the Ohio River.
He went to Point Pleasant later, and she told him she had a
terrible nightmare just before she got his letter. She
dreamed, "There were a lot of people drowning in the river and
Christmas packages were floating everywhere in the water."
Having a dream before receiving a letter from a person under demon
influence indicates that the same demon gave Keel his prophecy and
Mary Hyre her dream.
Keel went back to New York and watched the Christmas tree lighting
ceremony on television.
delivered a Christmas greeting and lit the tree at roughly
5:56 p.m. In his address he spoke about scientific
breakthroughs, the tragedy of war, and hope for peace. He
remembered those fighting abroad and the 500,000 Americans
celebrating Christmas without a beloved son or husband.10
After the President threw the switch and lit the
Christmas tree, there was no power blackout. Then as the
crowd was cheering, there was a special announcement on
"We interrupt this program," he
announced flatly, "for a special bulletin. A bridge laden
with rush-hour traffic has just collapsed at Gallipolis,
Ohio. Further details as soon as they are available."4
That was the collapse of the Silver Bridge at Point
Pleasant that had occurred at 5:05 PM EST. Keel was livid
because he realized he had been played by his demon. He had
been told of an electrical blackout, but not about the bridge
because the demons knew he would warn people. Actually it
was the Elect Angels who destroyed the bridge and took people to
their death. The demons apparently knew but were not allowed
to reveal what would happen. So the demons put their own
spin on it and linked the catastrophe to the lighting of the
Christmas tree at the same time news of the bridge collapse would
be broadcast. A Christmas tree is the symbol of Phallic
Reversionism (Ps 37:35).
