“He was the blackest black I’ve ever seen,” Ann says, “and his eyes were a deep, deep azure blue.”
The stranger introduced himself simply as Thomas. And then he told her that her cancer was gone.
They invited the mysterious stranger inside, where he re-affirmed that she was healed. Ann asked, point blank, who he was, to which the stranger replied, ‘I am Thomas. I am sent by God.’ He then proceeded to perform a sort of laying-on-off-hands healing. Ann felt a burst of light and heat go through her body, and passed out. Subsequent testing showed no trace of the cancer, and there has been no recurrence.
The obsidian angel quoted Isiah 53:5 to the couple, a text concerned with healing through sacrifice. THOMAS = 62 = ORDER and SACRED and AIWASS & LAM in NAEQ6, thus identifying the commonplace name with the current of the present Aeon.
But, lest the omen be misunderstood, on the next page TIME gives another modern angelic account, a being seen by Melissa Deal Forth with her dying husband Chris Deal, comforting him and seemingly communicating to him a profound sense of peace. When her husband was discovered missing from his hospital bed only days before his death, she found him in the hospital chapel “with a man she had never seen before”.
He was tall, dressed rather like Chris usually did, in a flannel shirt, new Levis and lace-up work-boots that appeared as if they, too, had just been taken off the shelf.
The clothing of such visitors in UFO lore also often appear taken ‘directly off the shelf’.
“There was no real age to him,” Melissa says. “No wrinkles. Just this perfectly smooth and pale, white, white skin and icy blue eyes. I mean I’ve never seen that color blue on any human before.”
