The leader of a religious cult based in Jakarta has asked Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo and Jakarta’s Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama for their permission to allow a UFO, piloted by the archangel Gabriel, to land at the country’s National Monument so that he can pick up her followers.
Lia Eden, 67, claims to have had an encounter with the Archangel Gabriel, whom she refers to as the Holy Spirit, in 1995.
As a result she came to believe she is the reincarnation of Mother Mary. According to Eden God declared her to be “Gabriel’s mate,” and that she was “the one God has declared as His heavenly incarnate on earth.”
At various times she has also claimed to be Gabriel himself, or to be the Messiah tasked with bringing security and justice to the world.
Eden also says her son, Ahmad Mukti, is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ.
The religious cult, known as Salamullah or ‘God’s Kingdom of Eden,’ believes Muhammad was the last prophet, and teaches that all religions are true.
The desire to be whooshed away by a UFO may have something to do with a failed prophecy.

Taking a break?
On April 28 Eden warned that Jakarta was going to be hit by a major earthquake before the end of the month.
Not a tremble was felt.
Eden said two young men sighted Gabriel’s UFO near the National Monument and recorded it on their cell phones. She therefore asked Indonesia’s President and the local governor to allow the UFO to land.
Neither official has responded.
