    The foregoing part of the book presented detailed comparisons of the Biblical text with the technical exposition and established their concordance. In this and the next sections of the book a summary is given of specific characteristics and features which are scattered over large portions of Ezekiel's report. This method of argumentation contributes to deeper understanding and is therefore a part of the evidence. It also leads to new and surprising consequences which, although they are not of a technical nature, are directly dependent on the technical study and thus are also part of this investigation.  [p.101] 


    Three expressions are consistently used in Ezekiel's book to indicate certain conditions or events. The occurrences of these expressions are too typical and too clearly linked to certain phases of the events to be regarded as merely coincidental.

    We come across the first of these expressions at the outset of each encounter. It is so conspicuously placed that—to continue musical comparisons—it can be truly described as an upbeat. This is how it reads:

First encounter


The hand of the Lord was upon him there.

Second encounter


And the hand of the Lord was there upon me.

Third encounter


The hand of the Lord God fell there upon me.

Fourth encounter


The hand of the Lord was upon me.

    This rule is broken only in one instance at the beginning of the flight during the first encounter when Ezekiel is overcome by shock and says, in Chapter 3:


. . . and I went in bitterness in the heat of my spirit, the hand of the Lord being strong upon me.

    The content of this last verse could perhaps include the key to the explanation of the "hand of the Lord" because, as already mentioned earlier, it might be regarded as a hint of a hypnotic influence.

    The investigation of the actual meaning of this expression does not belong among the objectives of this book. Its mention is nevertheless necessary because it occurs exclusively in encounters with the spacecraft. By way of contrast, all visions are introduced by the words: "the word of the Lord came to me . . ." or similar formulas with minor alterations. This evident differentiation is also pointed out in Reference 6, page 41. It is given so much emphasis that its intentional character cannot be misunderstood. We shall come back to this aspect in Section 7.

    The second expression is "Then the spirit lifted me up" or "the spirit took hold of me" or similar formulas with minor variations. . . .  [p.102]
