"I am commander of ten million spacemen now occupying bases established within range of your planet. We come at the urgent request of the creator to aid you during the times of tribulation on Shan (Earth). We have aided many times in the past. The miraculous cloud that led the Hebrews during the Exodus was in fact ionized air surrounding the force field of one of our spacecraft.

Our instructions and our principles prevent our taking such a course …" Goes on to conclude that their goal is “the acceptance of our Beloved Commander-in- Chief, Jesus Christ, as the ruler of Shan."
