    Dear Bro. Carter,
    It is rare to see any black professionals who subscribe to ETs and UFOs. I have a question for you sir, are you cognizant of anything concerning the space Zetas ETs of
    Oh, I enjoyed deeply your comment on one video concerning Aliens. And lastly, I am a witness to the veracity/reality of this group and a contactee since 1999.
    Thanks and salaam

      Brother Vance,
      Sorry it’s taken me awhile. I need to check my webiste more often. Yes to both questions. The Zeta ET group if I am not mistaken are said to be from the star cluster or planet Zeta Reticulli (sp?). I have heard that they resemble a species of Grays (as all Grays are not alike) but that is all I know for now. I will check out
      Thanks for letting me know about your contactee status as many of us of color do not talk about those experiences.
      Peace be with you as well….

      Hi Nat Vance,
      I am not sure I am familiar with the venue. Is it channeled material?


  2. Ms. Berjettej says:

    Hello Rev. Carter:

    Oh, but we DO speak out about such experiences! Here is a clip of Minister Louis Farrakan:

      Ms. Berjettej,
      No doubt Minister Farrakan speaks out but he is not the majority. However,your point is well taken. Thanks for writing.


  3. Charles Rowe says:

    Hello Mr. Carter, I am doing some research on George Clinton Rowe a historical figure noted for his poetry, activism for the “negro” people and a religious leader, are you related to him, are you related to Harrison Carter or Enid Carter?

    • admin says:

      Sounds like good work. can you keep me posted?


    • admin says:

      Hi Charles. No relationship that I am aware of. I was adopted so my step father who raised me has the last name of Carter. My mother’s maiden name was Schaired and that was my last name before adoption.
      Keep up the good work with you research and peace be with you!


  4. dear dr .carter could there be literally deminstions where nothing grows old are decays

    • admin says:

      I would say yes regarding other dimensions. People who have had near death experiences (NDEs), frequently talk about what can be termed other dimensions and the beauty of just spending a short time in that environment. I guess some would call that “heaven.”
      Thanks for writing!

  5. Rev.Philip Beauchamp says:

    Hi Michael,
    It has been some time that I got in touch with you. I hope that you are doing well.
    I just want to recommend that you read the book “The Zeta Message” by Judy Carroll & Helene Kaye. You might find it interesting. I also suggest that you go to Mauro Biglino is a Italian scholar of the history of religion and you might be susprise on what he found about the original Hebrew Bible.Take care.

    • admin says:

      Thanks Phillip for staying in touch. I have checked out the website you told me about. Very good info!


    • Lisa says:

      Hello – I looked up Rev Michael after seeing you on Tv, it seems you are doing some very good work! And here I saw Rev Philip’s suggestion about Mauro Biglio… the .com site didnt work, but I found lectures on Youtube – VERY interesting, I thank you for sharing that!

  6. bill clinton says:

    You are NOT a Christian. If you want to be a Unitarian or Universalist then go be one, but those religions have nothing to do with Christianity so please stop using the Bible to support your religion as it does no such thing. I’m quite sure you will ignore everything I just stated because the scripture must be fulfilled, “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

    • michaeljscarter says:

      Thank you for your reply mister Clinton. I do wish you many blessings and all good things. After all, one does not have to think alike to love like. Peace to you and yours.


    • sawyer says:

      Unfortunately Christianity is far more based on Paul of Tarsus teachings than anything Jesus said, with rare exception. The Kingdom of God/Heaven has no history or need to zap someone blind to get them to believe and certainly Jesus would not spend all that time and energy on his direct assigned spokesman and then turn around and cause confusion and the distortions of the truth by forcing someone who was literally dragging Jesus believers into jail and overseeing their murder (St. Stephen). Now in case you are of that same mindset re: Paul of tarsus, I am not justifying Michael Carter’s views but, what are the “commandments of men” he is teaching? Anyone can quote various scriptures to justify what they want of course, that’s free will, but nor does that make it an applicable quote to the subject. If you get familiar with Enoch’s writing that Moses directly referenced in Genesis and Luke’s gospel refers to and Jude’s reference as well to show it was part of the “records” then, that should have been added to the “canon” because of the discoveries of Enoch manuscript parts in the “dead sea scrolls” then you will see a great deal of evidence of beings that worked for God but FELL. This is direct evidence of what today we would call space aliens among us, although the Luciferians are also of the same mindset and have both a presence through the discarnate “spirit” world and by using their descendants, of mindset and some in genealogy as well as they go hand in hand throughout generations as in Genesis 6. Now on top of all that, here is one that might also be quite challenging for Mr. Carter to consider which I will write to him about, which I will say only a little about here. Consider those who were called Ti and Do. If you investigate them you will have many, many opportunities to decide to believe what you want regarding them as most of the articles about them hated them in various ways yet they were/are a global phenomena as the Heaven’s Gate “cult” that were considered to have committed “suicide” but that there was no evidence it was “suicide” any more than one could consider that Jesus and his disciples committed “suicide” by “laying down their lives” for the Lord, the Lord being Jesus incarnate – “in the flesh” as a “son of man” (offspring human) which is also the way Jesus said he would return, yet in a new body with his Father who would both have new names in a new land and would speak plainly no more in parables which is consistent with the Rev 11 Two Witnesses I have written about extensively re translating most of the book of revelations to who a complete congruent interpretation along the lines of everything Ti and Do said and did as I was with them for 19 years. The Rev 12 woman was Ti and was the Father’s return as prophesied and the Rev 6 “one who sits on the white horse” was the one called Do. A horse was used to describe the way a human being is like a horse to the Kingdom of God/Heaven, a “vehicle” a soul needs to overcome/conquer/prevail against (as Jehovah) by the hands on work by the in the flesh Older Member from the Kingdom of God to bring the Soul to harvest. The red horse was Bush/Blair in their warmongering endless war that began with the Rev 11 “shaking” (earthquake) after the two witnesses and 42 member student body exited their human “vehicles” to graduate as the first fruit as Jesus had indicated. The black horse is Obama who has precised over the two “beasts” (republicans (conservatives) and democrats (liberals)) starting out with a global financial crisis still reverberating throughout the world as with the warring. We have yet to see whe the green horse will be but I have some ideas. If you got to Rev 9:1 you will see the depiction of the space aliens that were let out of the bottomless pit – depicted as flying scorpions that inject poison to the soul into humans seen as the contactee explosion. The opening of that pit was mostly in the late 1940’s – 1950’s at the same time as Ti and Do and returning “saints” (who gave their lives for Jesus/truth delivery that was their choice to die for) came via the crashing of some of the space alien spacecrafts. It can be confusing, but Jesus was not from a “spiritual kingdom” though it is like a different dimension in that they can control the vibrations of their physical bodies to be invisible and the same with the cloaking of their spacecrafts – staying hidden on purpose so not to be confuse with space aliens who have primitive spacecrafts compared to the Kingdom of God’s transportation. That’s why the Kingdom of God/Heaven use “clouds” to cloak so we would still have a physical reference to their presence. Remember Jehovah showed Moses his shoulder. And Jesus proved his was still physical after surviving his vehicles death. He remained and ate food and let disciples touch him and he levitated or was drawn into that “cloud” with witnessing “angels” that looked like people saying this was the way he comes and goes, “physically and from/through cloudcover” but he didn’t take his body into a cloud to float around on a cloud. They are 100% active in many tasks on board their even biologically developed spacecrafts, ones the luciferian space alien fallen angels were never allowed to have as the fallen angels never actually graduated into full adult membership in the Kingdom of God/Heaven as they did not have incorruptible physical bodies. In one of the few things Paul did say that seemed to demonstrate coming from Jesus through Peter perhaps was that the body we would receive upon becoming a member of the Kingdom of God/Heaven would also be a type of flesh body just not like the flesh body of human or animals so it was called a “celestial body” an outer space body. Now the luciferians are very busy creating facsimiles of all the Kingdom of God/Heaven does so it can be tricky to discern except by their “fruit” you shall know them. Their fruit are their behavior and ways consistent with all Jehovah through Moses taught and that the Father through Jesus taught. As hard it is to conceive of this, it can really be summed up as a type of gradual removal of self and detachment from our human roots in behavior and ways that is represented and applied when we (our souls) are brought back at a time when an Older Member (Heavenly Father) is occupying a “human offspring” and are required to “leave all behind” to join with that Older Member as Jesus REQUIRED and as Ti and Do required. When that happens it is what Paul was referring to as being “caught away” from our human life as it’s like we are fish that are caught. (remember how Jesus said he was making his disciples “fishers of men”). There will not be a “rapture” as many Christians think will take place though there is a potential for a facsimile of such when the space aliens abduct humans for their DNA and loyalty. Ti and Do spoke plainly – no religion or spirituality. They are attacked by all and lumped in with Jim Jones and solar temple when there was NO resemblance. They had NO children and NO one was murdered and NO one was manipulated though of course that’s hard to believe for the unbelievers. It’s even hard for believers but “hard” doesn’t make it inaccurate. Now we are not required to lay down our lives to qualify for a second harvest but we must “give our lives” to the service of Ti and Do’s truth and that will be seen as evil and thus feared by Christians, atheists, new agers alike so may require those of us who are serving to die in that service.

      However, there is NO group, NO new cult and no leaders and nothing to buy or become a card carrying member of to work for Ti and Do. I suggest as Ti and Do suggested early on that if anyone wants to know the truth, what is most real about anything and I’m applying that to learning whether Ti and Do were the return of the Father and Son as prophesied, then since most will not feel they can just use the names Ti and Do, which they do respond to, but in non-human and non-space alien ways so to remain in a faith building relationship, so no voices in the head, no channeling, no visitation by a spacecraft and beings, no spirits manifesting in some way to us, no visions like Fatima which are all “tricks” of the “lower forces” to steal away Souls, but will come in subtle fashion that the asker will have a sense is a response to their asking for the truth. The formula Ti and Do gave for that is as Jesus gave with a tiny adjustment to the times: Project your asking out into the distant heavens as far away from Earth as one can imagine, beyond the stars to the Living Beings who are Superior (above human) in everyway (and above space aliens who are human equivilents, all in an evolutionary (non-Darwinian) way, as seen in the fact of the human kingdom being “above” the animal kingdom (in having choices and activities animals don’t have) and the animal is above plant and plant is above mineral. So Ti and Do said human was not the last kingdom in that progression saying there was an “Evolutionary Level Above Human” that has been what humans have been prepared to understand that accurately for the last 6000+ years of the current civilization (as there have been previous civilizations on Earth).

      There is a great deal more to show and tell about this. The Heaven’s gate website is till being maintained to see exactly what Ti and Do and Crew said and there is a free text file download on that site. Also you can go to my blog and/or to watch many of the video’s I have made over the years about Ti and Do and a lot of new scriptural understandings. Ti and Do didn’t teach from the bible so another fault Christians can have but that’s their choice and the Next Level as Ti and Do called the Kingdom of God/Heaven, as the human kingdom is a stepping stone to that Next Evolutionary Kingdom, wants us to have the choice and makes it very easy to choose to gravitate to someone else as all are not ready to take the kind of leap of faith belief in Ti and Do requires, faith that becomes completely substantiated by the work we do that becomes evidence of the truth.

      I suggest you give all this careful consideration as this is not just some new age philosophy. All prophecies are in process of fulfillment and many have already been fulfilled. We are in the time of the 7th angel’s trumpet blowing where all the mysteries of the “prophets” are being clearly delineated. The one people think of as Jesus will return one more time before the recycling is fully underway, but if we haven’t by then chosen to believe in Ti and Do, we won’t know that it is They who we are praying to as Jesus/God.

        Dear Mr. Sawyer,
        Thank you for writing. You have much knowledge it seems. I am not going to debate theology or anything of the sort. No, this is not what you are implying. If at the end of the day, with all of the knowledge we both can garner, are we still more loving and more fulfilled and authentic human beings? Are we more forgiving? We will know each other by our fruits. We will know each other not by how much scripture we can quote, but how we treat each other. The Creator is big enough to sort the rest out.

        Peace and Richest Blessings to you and yours,

  7. Vern M. says:

    I recently discovered your book “Alien Scriptures…” and I wanted to thank you for it. I’ve been fascinated with the idea of UFOs/ET’s since I was 8 years old (I’m now 25) and in my teens I hit a rough patch where I questioned everything I was learning in my Catechism & Confirmation classes. A lot of the questions you ask in the book are questions I’ve long had and the belief that it could be UFO/ET related is something I’ve held onto; I’ve asked those tough questions that my Youth Group mentors and friends did not have answers to. I’m a very open minded person when it comes to the supernatural and God especially. Reading the Bible from that point of view helps me make sense of it. With all of that said, it is nice to a book come out when such a thing is often seen as taboo. You make excellent claims in the book and from my own personal view point a lot of it makes sense. To quote you, “the belief of UFO’s in the Bible is a statement of faith” and with that mentioned isn’t the entire Bible based on faith (regardless if it’s literal or not)? So the answers as to what the Bible truly is can be endless whether it’s “God” or “UFOs/ETs”. No one truly has any answers so in the end it comes down to faith and how we go about interpreting it. Again, thanks for such a thought-provoking book and one that finally shares my viewpoint on things.

    • michaeljscarter says:

      Hi Vern,
      Thank you for writing me and for reading my book. At times the questions are more important than the answers! Peace to you and yours and keep looking up…


    • michaeljscarter says:

      Dear M. Vern,
      Thank you so much for writing. Yes, much of the Bible must be taken on faith and some on what your heart and mind ( intelligence) means to you. There is just so much evidence of off world intelligence that for me, I don’t even entertain thoughts from myself or others that we are alone in the Universe. The question is how do we live with ourselves and each other with this knowledge. Hopefully we will learn to evolve and to love.

      Wishing you Peace and Richest Blessings,

      • Chris says:

        I want to let you know that I admire your courage. How extraordinarily brave of you as a theological scholar and black professional to write a book on the subject you have chosen. I find it incredibly encouraging! I too am a young black professional. I am also an actor. Admittedly, I have not read your book yet. But I am so excited to get it and see what you have put together! Since I was a child I have been interested in space and especially the subject of other beings in the universe. Recently I have started to dig deeper into the questions I have, consuming all things UFOs that I can find. Saw you on the History channel’s Ancient Aliens special and here i am. Looking forward to reading your book soon!

        • michaeljscarter says:

    Brother Michael 🙂

    I am writing to you from the West Coast of Australia.
    I recently had the privilege of hearing your appearance on C2C – to which I subscribe – and wanted to tell you how uplifting and joyful I found it.
    There is so much I could comment on.
    But the nub of it is that you have made a wonderful impact on my Life.
    I am not a Christian – in fact, I follow a Native American faith as best I can (I know that you also have Native American heritage) – but found your non-judgemental “inclusiveness” a blessing.
    I wish all people could be so open and tolerant.
    I want you to know that you have made a difference to my attitudes and expectations of myself and others.
    I wish you peace and balance in all things, Brother.

    Peace. Bid

      My Dear Brother Bidstrup,
      Thank you so much for writing and it is great to hear your “voice.” I do have a Cherokee (Tsagali) lineage in my ancestry and I do try to follow the “old ways.” Please stay in touch and keep walking your trail. Walk In Balance.

    I just read about you tonight in an article written by Kathleen Cantwell, and said to myself that I had to hear you speak…How exciting to know that you are in this area. I now live in Asheville. I am into every thing you have experienced in your life, and myself have had some profound ones in my life. Looking forward to when I can meet you and hear you speak and also read your book…………..In Love and Light,Namaste,Jacquie

        I am writing to inquire about Reiki treatments. I have MS, am still ambulatory, and I understand I chose to take this path on this lifetime. I am in Washington State, and am wondering if you have any suggestions?

        • michaeljscarter says:

          Hi Arlene,
          Happy New Year and thanks for reaching out again. I hear that is a beautiful part of the country. I would strongly suggest that you find a Reiki practitioner to assist you in maintaining and restoring your health. Reiki, in short is energy medicine and works on body, mind, and Spirit. It will boost your immune system as well as keeping your body relaxed. Reiki, also works on the emotional level as well, assisting in releasing old traumas and baggage. Perhaps you can try Google in locating a practitioner in your area. In addition to that, if you email me a photo of you, I can send you distant energy as well.

          Keep me posted and use my email address as well as I do not check my blog often.

          Peace to you and yours,

    once in while I read the book of Urantia. what do you think of the book?


    • michaeljscarter says:

      Hi Craig,
      The jury’s still out for me. I finished reading most of the story of Jesus’ ministry and it read mostly like the New Testament narratives. I’m not sure that’s exactly accurate according to my studies and research. Its a heavy book literally and figuratively. I put it down for awhile. It also tends to coroborate the idea of a “trinity” which I don’t particularly believe in. I feel the book does have alot of spiritual truths and wisdom in it though. It also speaks of “God” as The Father, which no longer resonates with me so I try to use other terms when reading it to myself. I’ll pick it up again. Its like “A Course In Miracles” for me. I pick it up and do the lessons and then put it down for awhile and go back to it…

      Hope you are doing well and I wish you and your House much peace!
