King Abraham by Ralph Ellis from his web page at Abraham
If I indicated that biblical Abraham was a pharaoh of Egypt, would it appear to be an utterly absurd figment of a deranged mind? Initially that may seem so, but this is only because we have grown so used to the orthodox ecclesiastical creed that we have forgotten that the Biblical Abraham was in fact a very powerful man. Josephus, the first century Jewish historian says of Abraham:
Pharaoh Necho, king of Egypt at the time, descended on this land with an immense army and seized Sarah the Princess, mother of our nation. And what did our forefather Abraham do? Did he avenge the insult by force of arms? Yet he had three hundred and eighteen officers under him, with unlimited manpower at his disposal!
Three hundred and eighteen officers, not men, under his command, it was obviously quite a sizable army that Abraham had at his disposal - possibly running into the tens of thousands. In this case, the image I have portrayed above is not quite so absurd, at the most it is just an embellishment on what the texts say, for they do not explain from what lands and over what peoples Abraham was such a leader. Yet how many options do we really have, how many nations in this era would have such a powerful army? This simple observation, holds within it the key to the fundamentals of modern theology and these are far removed from the Christmas card images that we are so familiar with. It is somehow explained to us by the clergy that the whole of the Western world were suddenly transfixed by the philosophy of a family of nomadic sheep-herders wandering around the Negev desert, a family who had held their traditions through thousands of years - and all this at a time when most such individuals were illiterate. This is the fantasy!
The truth is rather different and rather more believable - Abraham, pharaoh of Egypt master of all he surveyed, the most powerful man in the world. Now this would be a real story to set the scribes scribbling, the story of his sons, of his forefathers, of his mighty deeds and works. Like the tales of all kings, each and every schoolchild would be forced to learn by rote the names and accomplishments of the royal family, it would be ingrained into the national psyche. This is the kind of family that can trace their history back through 70 generations, as could Jesus, this is the kind of family that could spawn a billion books. Jesus' nation, the Jews, have always had an overriding fascination with genealogy, but why should this be so? The reason is now clear, with their aristocracy perhaps descended from a line of semi-divine kings and descended from the mighty Egyptian empire, I think we have all the explanations necessary. Royal dynasties to this day have the same fascination for their family history, for the family's entire existence depends solely on proving their legitimacy.
But if the biblical family were pharaohs of Egypt, should we not see them in the historical record? Indeed so, but first of all the precise era to study needs to be decided and the clue to this comes from the Bible. The patriarchs in the Bible are known as being shepherds, as I have just indicated, in fact the Bible is quite specific about this point. Joseph's family are asked by pharaoh:
What is your occupation? And they said ... Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.
This point is not just interesting, it is fundamental to understanding what the Bible is trying to tell us. For it just so happens that a whole dynasty of pharaohs were known as shepherds! These were the pharaohs who, in the historical record, had 'invaded' northern Egypt during the 14th to 16th dynasties and these peoples were known as the Hyksos, a term which translates as 'Shepherd King'. Clearly we have a very obvious and very strong link here - in fact it is amazing that so little has been said about this coincidence. There is a great deal of synergy here, the Bible mentions a very special family line of Shepherds of which it says the Òkings will come out of youÓ and likewise the historical record tells us that some of the pharaohs of northern Egypt were called Shepherd Kings. It was a similarity that was just crying out to be investigated and the results of this scrutiny were quite astounding.
In reality the Bible and the historical record continuously merge into one - if one knows how to interpret what is being said.
The answer lay in the Egyptian records and their fascination with astrology, this just had to be a stellar reference, these kings were being compared to the constellation of Aries. With this concept firmly in the back of the mind, the Bible suddenly started to release its long hidden secrets: for there are numerous references to sheep and cattle in the Bible and although the subject matter fitted the quaint pastoral image being plied by the clergy, none of them made any literal sense. But suitably translated, with the sheep becoming the constellation of Aries (or their followers) and the cattle as Taurus (and their followers), everything fitted into place.
As has been alluded to in previous books, the constellations move slowly with the millennia and each era has a ruling constellation, the current one being Pisces. But back in the 13th 14th dynasty, they were on the cusp of a change in the constellations, between Taurus and Aries. The era of Taurus lasted until about 1800 BC, when Aries came into ascendance, this date is not only very close to both the era of the first Hyksos pharaohs and the arrival of Abraham in the Bible, but I would also suggest that this change in the constellations caused a social rift between the Apis Bull worshippers in Thebes (the Taureans) and the Hyksos Shepherd pharaohs in the north (the Arians). The country was divided, there was civil war - just as the historical records indicate.
(Paraphrased) You are Hyksos/Arians as you know, and your duty is to convert the followers of Taurus ... And it shall come to pass that pharaoh will call you, and shall say what is your religion. You must say in return that your religion has been Taurean from our youth even until now, both we and also our fathers. Otherwise you will not be allowed to stay in the land of Egypt, for we Hyksos/Arians are an abomination to the Egyptians.
Suddenly it becomes dramatically obvious why the Egyptians thought that shepherds were an abomination. This was not a reference to a profession, but to a religion and an entire nation - the Hyksos. Egypt had just been through a bitter and bloody civil war with these peoples, a war between southern and northern Egypt which resulted in the Exodus of the Hyksos peoples and the destruction of much of the northern delta lands. Of course the 'shepherds' were an abomination to the (southern) Egyptians - they were the Hyksos Shepherds!
Suddenly the Bible makes sense, there is valid historical dataThe name Raneb (aka. Nebre) appears as the 2nd king of the second dynasty 2812 BC. Manetho also tells us that Raneb introduced the worship not only of the sacred goat of Mendes, (the Aries Ram) but also of the sacred bull of Mnevis at the old sun-worship center of Heliopolis, and the Apis bull at Memphis (Avaris). However, scholars now appear to believe that the cult of the Apis bull was established by a former king, which is attested on a stele dating from the rule of Den (Udimu). Irregardless, it would seem that his name, whether stated as Raneb or Nebra, indicates a significant shift of worship to the sun god, which would have a very important impact on much of Egypt's remaining history. Of cource when the Hebrews left Egypt they made the graven image of the Bull and worshiped it. Assuming that Aaron was part of this culture, he built the image for the people. This was after he was consecrationed as a priest. And take note that they slaughtered many animals as sacrifices, smearing the blood on the alters..
The first sign of the zodiac, Aries is ruled by powerful Mars, The second sign of the Zodiac, Taurus is ruled by Venus.The object of worship, the calf, and the name of the god had a hidden meaning. This is typical of the symbolism of the Mystery religions that came from Babylon. The Israelites copied the worship of the calf from the Egyptians, who worshiped the god "Hapi" under the form of a male calf. This in turn was copied from the Babylonians, who used the bull as a symbol of Nimrod. Not only was a bull chosen because it symbolized might and strength, the Chaldee word for "bull" also carried a double meaning. Nimrod as a king was a ruler of the people, and the name for "ruler" is "Tur," that also means "bull" in Chaldee. Thus the bull was chosen to symbolize Nimrod in his worship because his sign of rulership - Taurus was the bull.. 4380 BC - 2220 BC. Further evidence that this is the correct interpretation to be placed upon the Old Testament writings is provided by the later works in the New Testament. Jesus, who was descended from the same family as the patriarchs, was born as a Lamb of God. In other words he was a young Shepherd (Hyksos) prince in exile, he was just a lamb for the time being. As Jesus matured to become a Shepherd, another momentous event was happening in the skies above; at just this precise era the constellation of Aries started to wane in the heavens and Pisces came into the ascendance. Accordingly Jesus changed his title according to the age-old tradition, the young shepherd became a Fisher of Men, a king of Pisces. The first of the Grail romance "Fisher Kings" had been crowned. 60 BC - 2100 AD.
So if the biblical patriarchs were indeed pharaohs of Egypt, why are they not to be found in the historical record? One of the simplest ways of looking for evidence for this biblical pharaonic family, would be among the all important and diligently recorded family names of the patriarchs.
The Hyksos took on Egyptian names when they became pharoahs, but because they did not have the secret rituals (magical spells) of the real Egyptians, they could not be called 'king'. Remember "Kingship was lowered from Heaven" and first given to "Nimrod". Nimrod and his family including Ham and Cush and their sons first lived in Babylonia - Nippur..
Nippur was noted in ancient Sumerian society as a consecrated city, the navel or ... calendar as it based its origin on the beginning year of 3760 BC. However this date, it has been said, is the date Anu visited Earth to see how mankind and his son Enki were doing.
Regarding the Earth and its resettling, words with Anu [on Nibiru] they exchanged. From the time of the Deluge [11,000BC] almost two Shars [7,200 years] have passed. The Earthlings have proliferated, from mountainlands to dried lowlands they went. Of Civilized Mankind by [Enki's son] Ziusudra there were descendants, with Anunnaki [Nibirans] seed they were intermixed. Offspring of the Igigi [Astronaut Corps] who intermarried roamed about. In the distant lands Ka-in's kinfolk survived.In the 7000 years since the Deluge, The Anunnaki pioneers had reclaimed Mesopotamia. They rebuilt homes for Enki and Enlil on the silt that covered their predeluvian abodes: Eriki's Eridu and Enlil's Nibru-ki. But for King Anu's visit to Earth, the Anunnaki built Unug-ki, (Ur) a new temple in Eden, in an area (Uruk) that was not controlled by either Enki or Enlil.
About 3800 B.C., Anu and his wife Antu landed at Tilmun. Enki, Enlil and Ninharsag--Anu's
three children--greeted them. "At each other they looked, aging to examine: though greater
in Shars were the parents, younger than the children they looked. The two sons [Enki and Enlil]
looked old and bearded; Ninharsag, once a beauty, was bent and wrinkled."
[Sitchin, Z., The Lost Book of Enki, 2002:268].
"Few and lofty were the Anunnaki who from Nibiru had come, few were their perfect descendants.
How over Mankind lofty to remain, how to make the many the few obey and serve. About
all that, about the future the leaders with Anu words exchanged. To come to Earth Anu decided."
[Sitchin, Z., 2002, The Lost Book of Enki, pages 264 -265]
Eridu; Sumerian: eridug; Akkadian:), from the Sumerian for 'mighty place', is modern Tell Abu Shahrain, Iraq. Eridu was the earliest city in southern Mesopotamia, founded c 5400 BCE. Located Seven miles (12 km) southwest of Ur, Eridu was the southernmost of a conglomeration of Sumerian cities that grew about temples, almost in sight of one another. In Sumerian mythology, Eridu was founded by the Sumerian deity Enki, later known by the Akkadians as Ea. Enlil let Enki choose Thoth/Ningishzidda to replace Ra/Marduk as Lord of Nile Lands. There we also find Ham, Cush, Nimrod, Saba and most of Ham's children and grandchildren.
The Luciferian legacy
Seeing that this Luciferian legacy played such a prominent role in the Merovingian mythos, we wondered if traces of it could be detected in the Bible and other related texts. In short order, we were able to discern an abundance of such material. What caught our attention the most were a number of stories which seemed very suggestive of the idea that certain key patriarchs were descendants of the Watchers.
Take, for example, the story of Abraham, the first proselyte ofonotheism, and a figure central in all three major monotheistic religions. His birth was, according to apochryphal traditions, foreseen in the stars by none other than King Nimrod, who felt threatened by the birth of Abraham, and effected a “slaughter of the innocents”- type scenario, in which 70,000 male children were put to death - in an effort to neutralize him. Consequently, his mother fled to the wilderness to give birth to him in a cave. As author Louis Ginzberg states in Legends of the Jews, upon Abraham’s birth, “The whole cave was filled with the light of the child’s countenance, as with the splendor of the Sun...” Compare this description with that in The Book of Enoch, where it was said that Lamech’s son Noah, “...illuminated all the house, like the Sun; the whole house abounded with light.”
A further indication that Abraham was of the Nephilim bloodline is that according to this version of the story, Abraham’s mother left him in that cave alone for twenty days, and upon returning, she did not even recognize him because he had “grown very big.” He was as large as a full-grown man and could both speak and walk - surely an indication of some divine supernatural ancestry. In fact, later chroniclers state unambiguously that Abraham was a giant. Like certain of his illustrious forebears, Abraham was also a great builder. Legends of the Jews tells us that:
“[Abraham] built a city for [his sons through his slave Hagar], surrounded by an iron wall, so high that the sun could not shine into the city... Also Abraham taught them the black art, wherewith they held sway over demons and spirits.”
Here we have a preeminent biblical patriarch as a practicioner of black magic, the forbidden art taught to man by the Watchers. And Abraham is not unique in this regard. Later figures such as Moses and Solomon were also said to be sorcerers. If three of the most important Old Testament figures were practicioners of the black arts, might not one reasonably conclude that an occult doctrine or tradition was perhaps central to the creed that eventually evolved into Judaism, and later Christianity? We will explore this idea (and the figure of Abraham) in greater depth later on, but first we will revisit the story of Jacob.
It was the tale of Jacob’s Ladder that provided the point of departure for most of our subsequent research, and we have since discovered alternate versions of the tale in which the symbolism is much more vivid. For example, in an apocryphal book called The Ladder of Jacob, 1:1-6, we read:
“He found a place and laying his head on a stone, he slept there, for the sun had gone down. He had a dream and behold a ladder was fixed on the earth, whose top reached to heaven. And the top of the ladder was the face of a man, carved out of fire. There were 12 steps leading to the top of the ladder, and at each step leading to the top were human faces, on the right and on the left... and the face [on top was] one of fire... [and was] exceedingly terrifying...”
The ladder in Jacob’s dream could be construed as representing a direct lineal connection between God and man, or the sons of God and man - the Nephilim patrimony of the twelve tribes of Israel fathered by Jacob. The “exceedingly terrifying” face of fire at the ladder’s apex is assumed to be God, although it could certainly be deemed a Luciferian apparition as well. The notion that the ladder represents the descent of the twelve tribes seems to be borne out by the twelve steps of the ladder, one for each of Jacob’s future sons. We find support for this idea in The Legends of the Jews, which tells Jacob’s story in greater detail.
“Jacob took twelve stones from the altar on which his father Isaac had lain bound as sacrifice, and he said: ‘It was the purpose of God to let twelve tribes arise, but they have not been begotten by Abraham or Isaac. If now these 12 stones unite into a single one, then I shall know for a certainty that I am destined to become father of the twelve tribes.’ At this point a ... miracle came to pass; the twelve stones joined together and made one, which he put under his head, and at once it became soft and downy like a pillow... He dreamed a dream in which the course of world history was unfolded to him.”The dream of Jacob’s Ladder is both a memory and a prophecy. It both foretells the coming of the twelve tribes, and alludes to their fallen angel lineage. In a bizarre addendum to this story, Jacob annoints the stone that served as his pillow with oil descended directly from Heaven, and then God casts the stone into “the Abyss” to serve as the cornerstone for his temple. But why would God want the cornerstone for His temple to be in the Abyss? Could it be because Jehovah’s Sumerian prototype, Ia, was known as “the Lord of the Abyss”?
Abram was born in Ur of the Chaldees, a Sumerian city located in the Tigris-Euphrates Valley region. From Ur, Abram and his family moved to Haran, about 600 miles (975 kilometers) to the northwest. "There, at the age of 75, he received his calling from God".
The genealogy of the Merovingian bloodline has for centuries been shrouded in mystery, and yet, we’ve been able to definitively trace it back to the “Shepherd Kings” of ancient Sumer. Subsequently, we’ve managed to fine-tune the focus of our investigation further still, and many indications (both ancient and modern) seem to suggest that the role played by Chaldea was of pivotal importance.
For instance, in The Book of Genesis, we are told that the biblical patriarch Abraham was “a Chaldean from Ur.” For most readers, this seemingly insignificant factoid would undoubtedly slip by unnoticed, but to the student of ancient cultures, it is pregnant with portent, because Chaldea was known to be a Mecca of astronomy, astrology, and the black arts. So much so, in fact, that the word “Chaldean” in many ancient cultures was synonymous with “sorcerer.” Even so far away as Northern Europe, their term for sorcerer, “galdyr”, was rooted in “Chaldee.” The authors of Genesis obviously did their utmost to distance the figure of Abraham from the occult traditions of Chaldea, yet Abraham still appears to be an occultist both in biblical and extra-biblical texts:
A collection of early Gnostic scripts found in 1945, known as the Nag Hammadi Library, contains a tractate pertaining to Melchizedek. Here it is proposed that Melchizedek is Jesus Christ. Melchizedek, as Jesus Christ, lives, preaches, dies and is resurrected, in a gnostic perspective. 'The Coming of the Son of God Melchizedek' speaks of his return to bring peace, supported by the gods, and he is a priest-king who dispenses justice.
Our comment; While Abraham was in Egypt the people did worship “the gods” (two-Horus and Set)
and had customs very different to other tribes - Josephus 1.8.S
The Babylonian Talmud Nedarim indicates, "The current Melekzedek priest who went to see Abraham was Shem, Noah's son." However Shem and Japheth are aligned with Enlil, Enki's brother.
In the Midrash, the Rabbis identified Melchizedek with Shem son of Noah. (E.g., Babylonian Talmud Nedarim.) The Book of the Bee, a Syriac text, also offers insights contrary to Melchizedek's purported immortal nature:And we found information that Abraham did finally become a priest under Melchizedek, but only after Abraham defeats Kedorlaomer - Genesis 14:18. The story relates that Abram lost God's favor but regained it when his name is changed to Abraham. Genesis 17. This God is the same god that he begged mercy from during the Sodom and Gomorrah attack, which was by-the-way, not because the people were wicked.. Abram knew the ancient immortal 'gods' of his Father because he says he worshipped the gods (more than one) of his Father. Joshua 24:2, "And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods. The LORD God of Israel is Jehovah,Yehwah, Enlil.
This strange verse verifies again the two Gods;24:19 "And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins". 24:23 "Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel. We notice in 23-24 Joshua’s farewell address, calling Israel to worship and love YHWH, not the "Lord", not Jehovah.
The Rabbis said that Melchizedek instructed Abraham in the Torah. (Genesis Rabbah 43:6.) Rabbi Eleazar said that Melchizedek’s school was one of three places where the Holy Spirit manifested Himself. (Babylonian Talmud Makkot 23b.) The Rabbis taught that Melchizedek acted as a priest and handed down Adam’s robes to Abraham. (Numbers Rabbah 4:8.) Rabbi Zechariah said on Rabbi Ishmael’s authority that God intended to bring forth the priesthood through Melchizedek’s descendants, but because Melchizedek blessed Abraham before he blessed God (in Gen. 14:19-20), God brought the priesthood forth from Abraham’s descendants.
Abraham's transfer of goods to Melchizedek is seen to imply that Melchizedek is superior to Abraham, in that Abraham is tithing to him. Thus, Melchizedek's (Jesus') priesthood is superior to the Aaronic priesthood, and the Jerusalem temple is unnecessary.
Terach, we are also told, was an educated professional knowledgeable in the skills, philosophies and spiritual practices known in his homeland in "Ur of the Chaldees," a civilized and sophisticated city-state in "Babylonia."
“Abraham... came to Egypt with all his household to the Egyptian king Pharothothes (a Hyksos Pharoah) and taught him astrology.” - Artapanus. 480 BC.The Bible refers to Egypt as "the land of Ham" in (Psalms 78:51; 105:23,27; 106:22; 1Ch 4:40). The Hebrew word for Egypt was Mizraim (probably literally meaning the two lands), and was the name of one of Ham's sons. The Egyptian word for Egypt was Khem, plausibly the origin of the name Ham, or vice versa, according to sound change between languages. The names of Ham's other children correspond to regions within Egyptian influence - Kush, Canaan, and Phut (probably identical with the Pitu, a Libyan tribe, though often associated with Punt, an ancient name for Benadir).
Artapanus seems to have had the agenda of crediting the Hebrews, Abraham, Joseph and Moses, with being the originators of significant aspects of ancient Egyptian culture, such as astronomy, geographical divisions [nomes] and hieroglyphic writing. The names he assigns to some kings of Egypt are rather inscrutable but Artapanus purports to know the names of the pharaohs associated with the life of Moses. These are clearly rulers found in the various epitomes of Manetho's kinglist, derived from his "Aegyptiaca", a history of his homeland in three books. The pharaohs are those of the 18th Dynasty.
“Abraham excelled all in nobility and wisdom; he sought and obtained the knowledge of astrology and the Chaldean craft... he traveled to Phoenicia and dwelt there. He pleased the Phoenician king by teaching the Phoenicians the cycles of the Sun and Moon, and everything else as well... [in Egypt] Abraham lived in Heliopolis with the Egyptian priests and taught them much: He explained astrology and the other sciences to them.” - Pseudo Eupolemus.
“...before the coming of Abraham, the Egyptians (Hyksos) were ignorant of these sciences, which thus traveled from the Chaldeans into Egypt, [and then] passed to the Greeks.” - Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews.
Note that Abraham is traveling far and wide not to preach the gospel of the “one true God”, but rather to spread the wisdom of the Chaldean craft. These Chaldean sciences seem to echo the teachings of the Watchers, and pertained to geometry, astronomy, and the movements of the planets and stars. Compare the lore of the Watchers to what Philo records about the Chaldeans:
“The Chaldeans exercised themselves most especially with astronomy, and attributed all things to the movement of the stars, believing that whatever is in the world is governed by forces encompassed in numbers and numerical proportions... seeking out the numerical arrangement according to the cycles of the Sun and Moon, the planets, and the fixed stars… .” - Philo, on Abraham.
The parallels between the Watchers and the Chaldeans become greater still when viewed in the light of a tradition cited by Eusebius, which said: “Abraham traced his ancestry to the giants. These dwelt in the land of Babylonia. Because of their impiety, they were destroyed by the gods.” So there you have it. These two traditions (of the Watchers and of the Chaldeans) sound so identical because they are identical - one and the same. Were the Chaldeans the descendants of the Watchers, and executors of their tradition? Such an idea is certainly reinforced by the fact that the Hebrew word for “Watcher” is “Ir”, which sounds the same as “Ur.” And the Watchers were called “the watchers of the heavens”, a very appropriate title for a people (like the Chaldeans) so preoccupied by astronomy.
Could it be that Ur was the primordial city-state of the Watchers? Very possibly. Ur is considered so ancient that to the modern mind it has become synonymous with antiquity itself. All of this would appear to suggest that Abraham’s status as a Chaldean from Ur may well be one of the most telling anomalies in the Old Testament. It also seems that Abraham is far more than merely a man who “traced his ancestry to the giants.” Remember, it was said that “Abraham excelled all in nobility and wisdom.” In ancient times “nobility” didn’t refer to a man’s demeanor - it meant of noble birth. And as we will ultimately reveal, the figure known as Abraham was of very noble birth indeed.For the time being however, we will continue our study of the Chaldean saga by looking into the story of King Gudia. Though one of the most illustrious of the Sumerian/Chaldean monarchs, Gudia remains a relatively obscure personage in terms of mainstream history. Gudia was both priest-king and architect, a builder of great cities and temples, not unlike Cain/Nimrod. And it just so happens that Nimrod was Gudia’s patron saint, as well as having been his ancestor. Gudia was like many of the Old Testament prophets, in that he was prone to dreams and vision. In one such dream, Nimrod himself appeared to the king, revealing to him the blueprints of a temple he wished to be erected in his honor. Upon waking, Gudia lost no time setting in motion plans to construct the Temple of Nimrod, a structure that would eventually be seen as one of the most significant edifices of its day.
The reign of Gudia witnessed a flourishing of culture and civilization in his region. He wandered the full length and breadth of Mesopotamia (and often beyond) to amass lumber, blocks, and precious metals for his many projects. He not only built new cities and temple, but rebuilt old ones as well. Ruling from his capitols of Lagash and Ur, he preferred not to be seen as a king, but rather as a priest and prophet. He was known simply as the “Good Shepherd”, and may in fact have refused the title of king (although his name does appear in the King’s List.)In a well-known statue of Gudia, the base is emblazoned with the floor plan of this temple. Other statues frequently depict him with Masonic architectural tools, such as squares, rulers, and so forth. As mentioned in previous articles, the first priests were also the first architects. Their secret gnosis encompassed not only the sacred, but the functional as well. And they encoded their sacerdotal wisdom (sacred geometry, astronomy, etc.) into the structures they built, so that their shape, placement, and dimensions were all a reflection of divine principles. This is a pivotal concept, and constitutes a tradition central to our own ongoing investigation. There are those who assert that Christ was not a carpenter at all, and that the word translated as “carpenter” should have actually been translated as “architect.” Looking further back in the past, we note that the Babylonian/Phoenician god Marduk is often depicted bearing a trowel. Though commentators have speculated that this may be an agricultural tool (as Marduk was thought to have taught man the science of agriculture), it is far more likely to be an architectural tool. And indeed it looks identical to the trowel which appears in so much Freemasonic ritual and symbolism. From all appearances, this would seem to constitute the tradition from which the Knights Templar and the Freemasons derived their creeds.
The Marduk ziggurat was set within the vast sacred precinct on the southern end of the town of Babylon, surrounded by the river, a canal, a double wall and a processional way. Its Sumerian name was Etemenanki. "The Foundation of Heaven and Earth." It was probably built by Hammurabi. Archaeologists discovered a core consisting of the ruins of previous ziggurats which had been levelled and enlarged several times, before Nebuchadnezzar added a casing of burnt brick 15 m thick. Of this structure only the ground plan and traces of the three stairs leading up to it have been preserved. A tablet giving measurements and the eye-witness account of the Greek historian Herodotos describe it as having had seven stages of different colors with a temple at its top. However, these sources do not solve the many ambiguities of its shape and size.
Of all the many kings that reigned over Chaldea or Sumer, only a handful of their names are known outside of specialist circles, or from readings of the Old Testament. Those that come to mind are Sargon, Hammurabi, Assurbanipal, and a few others. Why, then (or how) could a man of Gudia’s stature have simply vanished into the mists of history? A possible answer was suggested upon reading that in Gudia’s time and culture there were no letters equivalent to “G” or “I.” Substituting the closest equivalent to those letters results in something both startling and altogether unexpected: Judea.
Could it be possible that Judah, the son of Jacob from whom Jews derive their name, could in fact have been a Chaldean priest-king? Are Gudia and Judah one and the same? Turning to the Old Testament in search of information that would either corroborate or disprove altogether such a bizarre thesis revealed passages so scant and so strange as to be of no help whatsoever in either regard. Further searches in Josephus’ Antiquities and Louis Ginzberg’s Legends of the Jews proved equally fruitless. How could a man from whom an entire tribe of Israel adopted their name (the Jews) be so little documented in three such major works documenting Jewish history and folklore? It was both perplexing and mysterious, like trying to conceive of a New Testament that featured only a half-dozen off-handed references to Christ. It defied all logic. And it seemed that logic was the only means left to pierce this apparent conspiracy of silence. from Abraham
Jewish history changed his name from Abram to Abraham. He leaves the city to look for a better life and travels to Egypt. The people of the tribe of Abraham were known as the Shepherd Kings. An old historical text says, they were instructed by God to return to the land of their ancestors and reclaim the wisdom of their forefathers from the 'Caretakers'. We discuss the Caretakers on our Shepherd Kings page.
Bible dogma says, after the dispersion from Babel, idolatry again became well-nigh universal, and the Lord finally left the hardened transgressors to follow their evil ways, while He chose Abraham, of the line of Shem, and made him the keeper of His law for future generations. Abraham had grown up in the midst of superstition and heathenism. Even his father's household, by whom the knowledge of God had been preserved, were yielding to the seductive influences surrounding them, and they "served other gods" than Jehovah. They served the gods of old, "Those that came down from Heaven".
Shem however is portrayed in our other pages as being the son of Noah who corrupts mankind again after the flood. Shem worships a 'false god'. The 'other gods' are Enki and Anu and Enlil who is also known as Jehovah. The 'false god' or 'material god' is Enlil.
The name of Abraham’s father, Terah, is of great interest. Seeking clues only in the Semitic environment, biblical scholars regard the name, as those of Harran and Nahor, as mere toponyms (names that personify places), holding that there were cities by such names in central and northern Mesopotamia. Assyriologists searching the Akkadian terminology (being the first Semitic language) could only find that Tirhu meant “an artifact or vessel for magical purposes.” But if we turn to the Sumerian language, we find that the cuneiform sign for Tirhu stemmed directly from that of an object called in Sumerian DUG.NAMTAR—literally, a “Fate Speaker”—a Pronouncer of Oracles!
Terah, then, was an Oracle Priest, one assigned to approaching the “Stone that Whispers” to hear the deity’s words and communicate them (with or without an interpretation) to the lay hierarchy. It was a function assumed in later times by the Israelite High Priest, who alone was allowed to enter the Holy of Holies, approach the Dvir (“Speaker”), and “hear the voice [of the Lord] speak unto him from off the overlay which is upon the Ark of the Covenant, from between the two Cherubim.” During the Israelite Exodus, at Mount Sinai the Lord proclaimed that his covenant with the descendants of Abraham meant that “ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests.” It was a statement that reflected the status of Abraham’s own descent: a royal priesthood.
Farfetched as these conclusions may sound, they are in full accord with the Sumerian practices whereby kings appointed their daughters and sons, and often themselves, to high-priestly positions, resulting in the co-mingling of the royal and priestly lineages. Votive inscriptions found at Nippur (as those by the archaeological expeditions of the University of Pennsylvania) confirm that the kings of Ur cherished the title “Pious Shepherd of Nippur” and performed there priestly functions; and the governor of Nipper (PA.TE.SI NI.IB.RU) was also the Foremost UR.ENLIL (“Enlil’s Foremost Servant”). On our Forbidden pages we discussed Enlil and Enki. If you are unfamiliar with them please read that series.
Some of the names borne by these royal-priestly VIPs resembled Abraham’s Sumerian name (AB.RAM), also beginning with the component AB (“Father” or “Progenitor”); such, for example, was the name AB.BA.MU of a governor of Nippur during Shulgi’s reign.
That a family of people so closely associated with Nippur that they were called “Nippurians” (i.e., “Hebrews”) were nevertheless holding high positions in Ur is a suggestion that is in complete accord with the actual circumstances prevailing in Sumer at the time indicated by us; for it was then, at the time of the Ur III Dynasty, that for the first time in divine affairs and Sumerian history Nannar and the king of Ur were granted trusteeship over Nippur, combining the religious and secular functions. It thus could have well been that when Ur-Nammu assumed the throne in Ur, Terah moved with his family from Nippur to Ur, perhaps to serve as a liaison between the temple in Nippur and the royal palace in Ur. Their stay in Ur lasted throughout Ur-Nammu’s reign; it was in the year of his death, that the family left Ur for Harran.
What the family did at Harran is nowhere stated, but considering the royal lineage and priestly standing, it must have belonged to the hierarchy of Harran. The ease with which Abraham dealt, later on, with various kings suggests that he was involved in Harran’s foreign affairs; his special friendship with the Hittite residents of Canaan, who were known for their military experience, may shed a light on the question of where Abraham himself had acquired the military proficiency which he employed so successfully during the War of the Kings.
Ancient traditions also depict Abraham as greatly versed in astronomy— a knowledge then valuable for long journeys guided by the stars. According to Josephus, Berossus referred to Abraham, without naming him, when he wrote of the rise “among the Chaldeans, of a certain righteous and great man who was well seen in astronomy.In the book here we find that Abraham's belief was to leave behind the God of his Father's and find a new one. This God would be found in the country that he traveled to. When he arrived in Canaan, that God was Baal. Baal had a female consort, her name was Baalat and she was associated with Venus. In order to be a King, one had to marry the Goddess.
The Book of Hiram tells us that Solomon who was at the mercy of Hiram, King of Tyre, to supply him cedar and other goods to build the temple. Solomon wanted to be a true king. So he was obliged to convert to the worship of this goddess also called Astarte or Ishtar. Ishtar was a sister to Enlil and a very powerful goddess. Ishtar was the daughter of Sin. She was particularly worshiped at Nineveh and Arbela. Note that the Babylonian/Akkadian deity name Sin is derived from the Sumerian moon god Nanna - Suen. In the Sumerian myth "Enlil and Ninlil" Suen is trapped in the underworld. Sons of Enlil and Ninlil are given as substitutes to allow for the ascent of Suen.
Masonic note - Our summation: Hiram, King of Tyre and Hiram Abiff the architech, initiated Solomon into a sacred order, but we think the King did not reveal all he knew, neither did Hiram Abiff. This is why, in the end the bible says Solomon sined and worshiped 'other gods' and it may be the reason the 'word' was lost when Hiram was killed.
This is a very early Sumerian culture which went back to a least 2500 BC.
It is not Jewish or Hebrew. We told you that Enoch was Sumerian and with this
information the so-called religious history becomes different than the KJB
portrays. The gods were the gods that Abraham and his father worshipped.
But who were they?
Were they gods appointed by Enlil?
One thing we know for sure, they were immortal. The Turin Papyrus is proof
of rulership by these gods. The Gods are also identified in the Enuma elish
tablets and are also called the 'Watchers' by Enoch. This word also appears in the
Their children however died by war and violence just like men. Their children are known as the Nephilim in the KJ bible and they took human women as their wives. The Gods purpose was to teach men how to function on earth. They showed men how to plant crops and they administered the law as they were teachers and founders. They set up schools and were considered 'Masters'. But they were not idols of religious worship as the ritualistic gods of the subsequent cultures became. In fact, the word 'worship' was avod which meant quite simply 'work'. We are told in the Sumerian texts that 'men' worked for the Gods.
By 2000 B.C. the religions of Mesopotamia had just about lost the teachings of the Sethites and were largely under the influence of the primitive beliefs of two groups of invaders, the Bedouin Semites who had filtered in from the western desert and the barbarian horsemen who had come down from the north.
But the custom of the early Adamite peoples in honoring the seventh day of the week never completely disappeared in Mesopotamia. Only, during the Melchizedek era, the seventh day was regarded as the worst of bad luck. It was taboo-ridden; it was unlawful to go on a journey, cook food, or make a fire on the evil seventh day. The Jews carried back to Palestine many of the Mesopotamian taboos which they had found resting on the Babylonian observance of the seventh day, the Shabattum.
Although the Salem teachers did much to refine and uplift the religions of Mesopotamia, they did not succeed in bringing the various peoples to the permanent recognition of one God. Such teaching gained the ascendancy for more than one hundred and fifty years and then gradually gave way to the older belief in a multiplicity of deities.
The Salem teachers greatly reduced the number of the gods of Mesopotamia, at one time bringing the chief deities down to seven: Bel, Shamash, Nabu, Anu, Ea, Marduk, and Sin. At the height of the new teaching they exalted three of these gods to supremacy over all others, the Babylonian triad: Bel, Ea, and Anu, the gods of earth, sea, and sky. Ea is also known as Enki. Bel is Enlil or later Baal. Still other triads grew up in different localities, all reminiscent of the trinity teachings of the Andites and the Sumerians and based on the belief of the Salemites in Melchizedek's insignia of the three circles.
Never did the Salem teachers fully overcome the popularity of Ishtar, the mother of gods and the spirit of sex fertility. They did much to refine the worship of this goddess , but the Babylonians and their neighbors had never completely outgrown their disguised forms of sex worship. It had become a universal practice throughout Mesopotamia for all women to submit, at least once in early life, to the embrace of strangers; this was thought to be a devotion required by Ishtar, and it was believed that fertility was largely dependent on this sex sacrifice.
The early progress of the Melchizedek teaching was highly gratifying until Nabodad, the leader of the school at Kish, decided to make a concerted attack upon the prevalent practices of temple harlotry. But the Salem missionaries failed in their effort to bring about this social reform, and in the wreck of this failure all their more important spiritual and philosophic teachings went down in defeat.
This defeat of the Salem gospel was immediately followed by a great increase in the cult of Ishtar, a ritual which had already invaded Palestine as Ashtoreth, Egypt as Isis, Greece as Aphrodite, and the northern tribes as Astarte. And it was in connection with this revival of the worship of Ishtar that the Babylonian priests turned anew to stargazing; astrology experienced its last great Mesopotamian revival, fortunetelling became the vogue, and for centuries the priesthood increasingly deteriorated.
Melchizedek had warned his followers to teach about the one God, the Father and Maker of all, and to preach only the gospel of divine favor through faith alone. But it has often been the error of the teachers of new truth to attempt too much, to attempt to supplant slow evolution by sudden revolution. The Melchizedek missionaries in Mesopotamia raised a moral standard too high for the people; they attempted too much, and their noble cause went down in defeat. They had been commissioned to preach a definite gospel, to proclaim the truth of the reality of the Universal Father, but they became entangled in the apparently worthy cause of reforming the mores, and thus was their great mission sidetracked and virtually lost in frustration and oblivion.
In one generation the Salem headquarters at Kish came to an end, and the propaganda of the belief in one God virtually ceased throughout Mesopotamia. But remnants of the Salem schools persisted. Small bands scattered here and there continued their belief in the one Creator and fought against the idolatry and immorality of the Mesopotamian priests.
It was the Salem missionaries of the period following the rejection of their teaching who wrote many of the Old Testament Psalms, inscribing them on stone, where later-day Hebrew priests found them during the captivity and subsequently incorporated them among the collection of hymns ascribed to Jewish authorship. These beautiful psalms from Babylon were not written in the temples of Bel-Marduk; they were the work of the descendants of the earlier Salem missionaries, and they are a striking contrast to the magical conglomerations of the Babylonian priests. The Book of Job is a fairly good reflection of the teachings of the Salem school at Kish and throughout Mesopotamia.
Marduk was a son of Enki.
Much of the Mesopotamian religious culture found its way into Hebrew literature and liturgy by way of Egypt through the work of Amenemope and Ikhnaton. The Egyptians remarkably preserved the teachings of social obligation derived from the earlier Andite Mesopotamians and so largely lost by the later Babylonians who occupied the Euphrates valley.
The Gods of Ancient Ur.
The Moon God has always been complemented by a feminine counterpart. Nanna loved his consort the moon goddess Ningal. "Nanna fell in love with Ningal and she with him. It was from this joyful and impetuous union that Inanna, the morning and evening star and Utu the Sun God were born." (Wolkenstein and Kramer 141).The Ziggurat of Nannar and the Temple of Ningal (Internet, Woolley 1954 201) Nanna was worshipped in the ziggurat of Ur. There was also a smaller temple for Ningal the moon goddess. Nanna was worshipped both by a High Priestess and priests. Great Kings throughout history from Sargon 2600 BC to Nabonidus 550 BC had their daughters officiate as high-priestess of Nanna at Ur. The tradition begins with the first dynasties of Ur around 3400 BC and continued through to the fall of Ur around the time of Nabonidus, a period of some 3000 years. As we shall see this tradition continued for another 1700 years at Harran and still underlies the Islam of today. It is clear that Ur-Nammu the founder of the great Third Dynasty of Ur had a female familiar spirit or Shekina, which is shown in the stele below in which the King offers libations to the Tree of Life, before both Nanna and Ningal, to preserve the fertility of the garden, and that this was a central ritual in founding the great ziggurat of Ur. Ur-nammu saved the garden of fertility. In the fragmentary registers on the reverse of the stone [Stele of Ur-Nammu] we have a scene of sacrifice in which a priest cuts open the prostrate body of a bull so as to read the omens on its liver; and a scene of sacrifice in which it is possible that the king himself is figured as a god.
Ur-Nammu was deified after death if not in his lifetime." (Woolley 1954 159). "At no time in its long history was the city of Ur so important as in the days of the third dynasty, about 2300 - 2180 BC, when it was the capital of the Sumerian empire. The founder of the dynasty was Ur-Nammu, and he founded a royal house of which four generations after him were to sit on the throne; he was a great conqueror and a great ruler, famous for his justice and his good works, whose dominions extended from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean." (Woolley 1938 80.)
The early archaeological remains at Ur indicate a very prominent early flood. In the King list the kings reigned before the flood for a millennium. Then the flood came [before 3200 BC.] Afterwards kingship was sent down from on high. There was a dynasty at Kish, one at Erech and then the first Dynasty at Ur.
"Nabonidus (555-538 BC), last of the Babylonian kings appointed his daughter high priestess of the moon god at Ur, and the king states that in so-doing, he was following a precedent set by Kudur-Mabug, one of the Larsa kings who had reigned some 1500 years before - about 2000 B.C. Sargon (2630 - 2575 BC ) had done the same, and the limestone slab of the period of Entemena... carries the precedent further back still : all through history such importance was attached to the great temple of Nannar the Moon-god at Ur ... that the reigning king, though a foreigner, might hold it worth his while to send his daughter as High Priestess there; in one case at least a king's son was High Priest of the Moon-goddess." (Woolley 1954 216)
Ningal, who in Akkadian texts is referred to as "the Mother of the Great Gods" was also Moon Goddess. Her temple was second in importance only to the temple of Sin. Her temple was likewise rebuilt many times. Ishme-Dagan's daughter Enannatum, high priestess of Nannar rebuilte the entire mud brick temple of burned brick (Wolley 1954, 166). Ningal laments the destruction of Ur in her lament: borrowed from.. OriginsThe name Sin is the Semitic form of Sumerian Enzu meaning lord of knowledge. The Mesopotamians ascribed very great importance to him. It was he who governed the passing of the months through his waxing and waning. ... The unvarying lunar cycle gave Sin a special connection with order and wisdom and with immortality. The number seven is lunar in origin and is applied to the seven days of creation the seven levels of hell and the seven great planets, Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn..
The Babylonian lunar calendar was said to be invented by Nabu-Rimmani (Walker 646). Nabu is the god of writing, who bears the tablets of the gods and is identifiable with Mercury. Rimmon the pomegranite is a symbol of the enclosed fruit of the Yoni, thus also representing phallic male fertility (Walker 805). Nabu is also the wise serpent (Graves 470), the soothsayer and prophet, who knew and foresaw everything and was willing to give advice on any subject. The inventor of tablets and writing (Maspero 670). The features of Sin as moon god and Lord of Wisdom naturally complement those of Nabu and they come to have a close relationship, personified in Egypt in one god, Thoth.
It is important to remember that the Hebrew bible was a
recomposition of older sumerian writings. Over the years these
works were edited and re-edited to fit the prevailing culture
where the teachings were taught to children to explain their
heritige and from where they came. Of these texts the
works of Enoch (which were not included in the KJB) play an
important role in our story. The texts speek of a group of
non human beings called 'the Watchers' by Enoch. Some of these
beings are said to have 'come down from Heaven and mated with
the daughters of men'. Enoch's texts say the offspring of these
watchers are the evil ones. He calls them the 'Elohim' or
'giants' amoung men. If you have not read the text, we offer it
The Books Of Enoch On the first page of this site in an exerpt from Enoch's books, Enoch trys to explain to us how he was taken to Heaven and the reason for his existance on Earth was explained to him by God. "But my reason for being was to exalt the Father so that all knees should bend and that all heads should acknowledge the "time is at hand" for the externalization of the fathers Hierarchy, so that His Kingdom will come on earth as it is in heaven".
"I saw how the Masters from previous cycles were cast down to these stars from which they now govern the lower planetary worlds and the karmic penalties that were assigned to each. I was shown how earth was part of a biochemical testing zone using both fallen and divine thoughtforms in determining what type of intelligence could eventually free itself from the countless physical rounds of existence controlled by the fallen hierarchies inhabiting the regions of Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Polaris, and Thuban. These realms contain beings in imperfect bodies of Light who use their power to establish themselves as gods in the lower realms"...
This means simply, there are beings in the higher relms specifically Earth, who have established themselves as gods, and demand that they be worshiped. There is one particular 'god' who demands total loyality and he refuses to recognize there is a higher being and he thinks arrogantly that he is the only god. This is the rift between Enki and Enlil. Enlil demands than man 'serve' and obey him. There are actually many hints to who this jealous god is in the KJB text, but one has to 'read between the lines' to discover who and what he is. He is a jealous god because he is the second son of Anu and is not given the teachings that Enki has.
We think Abraham knew the true god. He is obligated to Melchizedek after recovering his kidnapped nephew Lot. As we have seen in the description of the gods above, Abraham becomes initiated under Melchizedek and Melchizedek clearly, worshipped Enki because the area they lived was controlled by Enlil. The Sinai and Jerusalem and Enki's sacred city Edru came under Enlil's jurisdiction. In exchange for the Sinai, Enki was given control over Egypt and all of Africa when he was forced to leave the Sinai by his jealous brother Enlil. However there is another reason Enki left. It is discusssed on the Forbidden pages.
Nabu, described as the wise serpent is the key to the true God. The relationship between the Moon God and his daughter Inanna of the Sumerians, Ishtar of Babylon, Athirat of Canaan, al-Uzza of Arabia, Hathor of Egypt and Hekate of Greece is complex and holds the key to the gender difficulties that have accompanied the emergence of the monotheism of Yahweh, the downfall from Eden and ultimately the patriarchal tradition of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Inanna, or Ishtar, although she is Queen of Heaven and said to arise out of the sea as did Aphrodite the Canaanite Athirat and Mari the Goddess of the Sea from Cyprus, Crete and Syria, identifiable with Anath, so Sin is also in this sense God the father of the 'virgin' Mary. (We disagree with this.)
The line of Nanna and Inanna are related to Enlil.
Abraham then is 'initiated' by the Masters into their sacred ranks and teaches the 'secret doctrine' to his sons, to be passed on to future generations, but only those of a particular 'bloodline'.
The Talmud, expanding on the Biblical account, tells us that Abraham discovered the true God while he lived in the house of his father Terach. Enki was a forgiving, loving god and had control over the Sinai before Enlil came down to Earth. Enki was then forced to leave and go to Africa. Terach, we are also told, was an educated professional knowledgeable in the skills, philosophies and spiritual practices known in his homeland in "Ur of the Chaldees," a civilized and sophisticated city-state in "Babylonia."
The problem then was that everyone else worshiped the false god and he was called Jehovah and Yahweh by the Hebrews. Since the population at large knew nothing about Enki they, like dumb animals followed the worshipers of Enlil. The Hebrew Nation slowly but surely created their own religion from bits and pieces of the old Sumerian religions. This religious culture was afraid of their god and he prevailed because the Hebrews secumbed to the obidence demanded by Enlil/Jehovah who seemed to punish them over and over.
This remained the process until the time of Jesus, who thought is was time to teach it to 'outsiders', those not of the 'bloodline', so they could educate the world. The Romans stopped this education process by killing everyone associated with the bloodline and those who kept the teachings alive. They burned records and destroyed libraries. They failed, we think because old records are now surfacing that prove this is true.
These records are the focus of our investigation into the lost religion of the ancients. Abraham, Moses and Solomon and seem to be the only adepts who knew the ancient code and did not worship the false god. Our purpose here is to revisit the 'old religions' and discover how it changed into what we have today. There could be well over 100 different religions and variations that all began here.
"The ancient site of Uruk (Ur) was occupied for 5,000 years from early in the Ubaid period until the 3rd century AD. In the fourth millennium BC, Uruk was the most important city in Mesopotamia and included two major religious centers: Kullaba, where there was a temple of Anu, the god of the sky, and Eanna/Enki, where the Goddess Inanna (later known as Ishtar) was worshipped." But this was before Enki was forced to leave.The Mithans, who occupied a part of the Kurdistan area, were Abraham's people (Hera 15, page 26), whose description is analogous to that of the Shemsu Hor made by Emery (fair hair and robust build). The "serpent priest" tradition (Hera 13 and 14) originates in the Middle East, with its foremost center right in Kurdistan, where at about 5000 B.C. the matriarchal culture of Jarmo represented the mother goddesses as divinities with faces of vipers and lengthened heads. We discuss the archeological finds on Passage forward 2
The Babyloian epic story told in the Enuma elish has the true story. This became the 'background story' told in Genesis.
In the KJB, it is said, 'the true faith was not to become extinct. God has ever preserved a remnant to serve Him. Adam, Seth, Enoch, Methuselah, Noah, Ham, in an unbroken line, had preserved from age to age the precious revealings of His will'. The son of Terah became the inheritor of this holy trust. Idolatry invited him on every side, but in vain. Faithful among the faithless, uncorrupted by the prevailing apostasy, he steadfastly adhered to the worship of the one true God'. "The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth." Psalm 145:18.
But as we said, there are two gods, not one and the people must decide which one is the 'true' god. Today's world recognizes One God, but that doesn't mean there isn't another one who thinks he is the only god and stands in judgement of all mankind. Most people say that Satan is just an evil deity who causes men to sin, but he, ie. Enlil, is a god even though it could be said he has no compassion for humans. Therefore there is no Satan. The good god still has power over the bad one. The problem is how do we identify the true, good one? The clue to this are the words, 'fear' and 'obey'.
And the message of God came to Abraham, "Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee." In order that God might qualify him for his great work as the keeper of the sacred oracles, Abraham must be separated from the associations of his early life. The influence of kindred and friends would interfere with the training which the Lord purposed to give His servant. Now that Abraham was, in a special sense, connected with heaven, he must dwell among strangers. His character must be peculiar, differing from all the world. He could not even explain his course of action so as to be understood by his friends. Spiritual things are spiritually discerned, and his motives and actions were not comprehended by his idolatrous kindred.
"And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God." Gen 14:18 "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light." 1 Pet 2:9
This is where the Ancient Wisdom teachings of Truth Principles come in. A principle is the source, origin or beginning, a fundamental truth and foundation upon which others are founded or from which they spring or are derived. So in light of all these combined meanings, if you really want to be certain that this or that spiritual teaching, book, seminar, etc. is based on fact then discern whether or not what is being shared is in total alignment and agreement with Ancient Wisdom Truth Principles. That’s not to say that other people’s personal beliefs or opinions aren’t valid of course. What works for them could also be helpful to you. Many have developed personal tools or interpretations that can be useful on the journey to uncovering underlying principles. But in themselves they are not THE Principles. Note that in many sacred texts the use of a capital letter denotes that which is the Divine Truth, at least as far as our finite minds are able to understand. In contrast, the use of a lower case first letter of the same word refers to human origin or understanding.
This Divine Wisdom of God’s sacred knowledge was passed on through the Temples of Love and Light of Atlantis. Then just prior to the fall of Atlantis, its Priest-kings dispersed the world and set up the secret Mystery Schools of Egypt, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and South America. Through these it was kept safe and passed on through true Eastern and Western Priesthoods, and through such Ageless Wisdom Teachings of the Hermetic arts and sciences, the Essenes, Gnostics, and Qabalists to name a few.The Order of Melchizedek has sent many of its High Priests like Jesus and other great spiritual Teachers to earth, and wayshowers like the Ascended Masters to explain and demonstrate the Truth Principles in ways relevant to the various times and cultures They served in. The form of presentation may be adapted but never do the fundamental Principles change – ever! Of course, in these past eras only the few privileged Aspirants, Disciples and Initiates could understand or were ready for such teachings, but now they are offered to any sincere, discerning seeker ready to further expand their consciousness. This page is an advertizing but it makes sence of what we have been trying to relate... see Melchizedek
Beginning with Aaron, we found this; Genesis 14:18-20. This brief verse tells us two things about Melchizedek: he was king of Salem [later to be Jerusalem] and he was “priest of the most high God.” In the Bible, this combination of king and priest in one person is both rare and significant. Only those associated with Enki were made king-priests - like Enoch and Jesus.
The KJB says, Abraham was initiated into the Christic Mysteries by the high Priest Melchizedek.
Psalm 110:4. “The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind: ‘You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.’ ” The entire Psalm is a prophecy of the millennial rule of Israel’s Messiah. Jesus applied it to Himself (Matt. 22: 43-45; Mark 12:36; Luke 20:42). The Psalm is also applied to Christ in Acts 2:34-35 and Hebrews 1:3; 5:6; 7:17,21; and 10:12,13. This scripture tells us that Melchizedek’s order [type or manner] of priesthood [both priest and king] foreshadows the priesthood of the coming Messiah. This was a new concept to Israel, whose law required priests only in Aaron’s lineage. (See The Aaronic Priesthood.)
As a result of the failure of the Israelites to observe the gospel law administered by Moses under the authority of the Melchizedek Priesthood, the Lord gave an additional law of performances and ordinances and “confirmed a priesthood also upon Aaron and his seed, throughout all their generations” to administer it. This priesthood was of lesser power and authority than the priesthood of Melchizedek, and was used to administer the outward ordinances, particularly as characterized by the ceremonies of the law of Moses. The terms Aaronic and Levitical are sometimes used synonymously although there are some specific differences in the offices existing within the Levitical Priesthood.
For example, the lesser priesthood was conferred only upon men of the tribe of Levi. However, within the tribe, only Aaron and his sons could hold the office of priest. And, still further, from the firstborn of Aaron’s sons (after Aaron) was selected the high priest (or president of the priests). Thus Aaron and his sons after him had greater offices in the Levitical Priesthood than did the other Levites. see Aaronic Priesthood The Aaronic Priesthood continued “with the house of Aaron among the children of Israel” from Aaron until John the Baptist, who was a priest in the Aaronic order and by this authority he prepared the way for and baptized Jesus. This then is a confirmation to Jacob's son Levi (for whom the tribe was named) not actually being a legimate priest and his own evil actions which undoubtedly brought great shame on the tribe, are probably the reason the priesthood was given to Aaron's sons.
"The second priesthood is called the Priesthood of Aaron, because it was conferred upon Aaron and his seed, throughout all their generations. Why it is called the lesser priesthood is because it is an appendage to the greater, or the Melchizedek Priesthood, and has power in administering outward ordinances."
Discrepencies in the New Testament;
The book of Hebrews mentions Melchizedek nine times (KJV), explaining that Christ’s own priesthood is superior to the law’s of the Aaronic priesthood (Heb. 4:14-7:25). The context allows no interpretation of a lost Melchizedek priesthood existing in the early Christian church. ( Origin of the High Priesthood.) The High priesthood in the Bible originated with Aaron at Mt. Sinai under the law of Moses.
The Gentiles ( Romans and Greeks) wanted their own church and their own laws so they changed it. That's why Paul used this as part of his rationale that the law of Moses were fulfilled. Paul makes a point of the contrast between the lineal requirement of the lesser priesthood and what he called the nonlineal Melchizedek Priesthood, which he said was not confined to those of one tribe. He assumed since Jesus was of the Melchizedek Priesthood order and is now dead, and has no heirs, he has a right to claim the Laws of Moses were fulfilled and there is no longer any need for them. WRONG!
The Lineage of Melchizedek; Jews kept precise genealogical records to validate eligibility for priesthood. In Hebr. 7:3, the superiority of Melchizedek’s priesthood was that he had no such genealogy: “Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.” In God’s Word there is no end recorded to his priesthood, and so he is compared to Jesus, whose priesthood also endures forever. Contrast this with Alma 10: 14 (Book of Mormon) which says Melchizedek reigned under his father; and with D&C 83: 2c-g (Book of Mormon) which claims that Melchizedek is one in an unbroken chain of high priests from Adam to Moses. God never alters His own Word (see Numbers 23:19), but apparently the Jews did...and this is an allegorical phrase; “Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.” It is not to be taken literally...And neither Aaron or Moses were in this 'Abraham' family line. See Matthew 1; 2-16.
In the KJB it is thought that Abraham was a priest and became unhappy with the king of Ur (his own father) and the other priests. This also indicated they became corrupt and were not respecting God's laws. The KJ Bible says, God was going to destroy the City and Abraham makes his plea to save the city, "If only one righteous man can be found".
Abraham was a priest, and a 'teacher'. The 'knowledge' he possessed was to be shared with man but was not to be misused. Abraham was the only one left in the City of Babel, who did not misuse the 'knowledge'. At a later date when Abraham, with his wife Sarah, went into Egypt, both he and Sarah taught the seven sciences to the Egyptians [ the common people ], and he had a worthy scholar called Euclid, who made profitable use of his instructions.( Euclid wrote the Regius- Halliwell Manuscript of Legend ).THE REGIUS MANUSCRIPT "Here begin the constitutions of the artof Geometry according to Euclid." Greek geometrician, who taught in Alexandria under the reign of Ptolemy I (323-283 B.C.). He is the author of the Elements, the basis of plane geometry. Elicid taught almost 2000 years after Abraham came to Egypt.
When Abraham arrived at his new home the people living there served other gods in Egypt.(Joshua 24:2)This arrival is thought to be around 1780BC.
Abraham and the group that traveled with him, took their god
with them. Abraham was considered a nomad by the Egyptians and
was called a Semitic, meaning decending from Shem, son of Noah.
The name "Habiru" is a derogatory term the Egyptians used to
describe the tribes that wondered like the Bedouin.
To the Egyptians, the tribes of pre-Isreal wore strange cloths, were bearded and did not speek the same tongue. At this point in time Abraham's god's name was not Yahweh. Because the people had their own personal god who remained with the family, like guardian angel, the god of Abraham was called "the God of our Fathers" but in Genesis 12:7, he is called Jehovah.
EARLY EGYPTIAN RELIGION
The original Melchizedek teachings really took their deepest root in Egypt, from where they subsequently spread to Europe. The evolutionary religion of the Nile valley was periodically augmented by the arrival of superior strains of Nodite, Adamite, and later Andite peoples of the Euphrates valley. From time to time, many of the Egyptian civil administrators were Sumerians. As India in these days harbored the highest mixture of the world races, so Egypt fostered the most thoroughly blended type of religious philosophy to be found on Urantia, and from the Nile valley it spread to many parts of the world. The Jews received much of their idea of the creation of the world from the Babylonians, but they derived the concept of divine Providence from the Egyptians.
It was political and moral, rather than philosophic or religious, tendencies that rendered Egypt more favorable to the Salem teaching than Mesopotamia. Each tribal leader in Egypt, after fighting his way to the throne, sought to perpetuate his dynasty by proclaiming his tribal god the original deity and creator of all other gods. In this way the Egyptians gradually got used to the idea of a supergod, a steppingstone to the later doctrine of a universal creator Deity. The idea of monotheism wavered back and forth in Egypt for many centuries, the belief in one God always gaining ground but never quite dominating the evolving concepts of polytheism.
For ages the Egyptian peoples had been given to the worship of nature gods; more particularly did each of the twoscore separate tribes have a special group god, one worshiping the bull, another the lion, a third the ram, and so on. Still earlier they had been totem tribes, very much like the Amerinds.
In time the Egyptians observed that dead bodies placed in brickless graves were preserved -- embalmed -- by the action of the soda-impregnated sand, while those buried in brick vaults decayed. These observations led to those experiments which resulted in the later practice of embalming the dead. The Egyptians believed that preservation of the body facilitated one's passage through the future life. That the individual might properly be identified in the distant future after the decay of the body, they placed a burial statue in the tomb along with the corpse, carving a likeness on the coffin. The making of these burial statues led to great improvement in Egyptian art.
For centuries the Egyptians placed their faith in tombs as the safeguard of the body and of consequent pleasurable survival after death. The later evolution of magical practices, while burdensome to life from the cradle to the grave, most effectually delivered them from the religion of the tombs. The priests would inscribe the coffins with charm texts which were believed to be protection against a "man's having his heart taken away from him in the nether world." Presently a diverse assortment of these magical texts was collected and preserved as The Book of the Dead. But in the Nile valley magical ritual early became involved with the realms of conscience and character to a degree not often attained by the rituals of those days. And subsequently these ethical and moral ideals, rather than elaborate tombs, were depended upon for salvation.
The superstitions of these times are well illustrated by the general belief in the efficacy of spittle as a healing agent, an idea which had its origin in Egypt and spread therefrom to Arabia and Mesopotamia. In the legendary battle of Horus with Set the young god lost his eye, but after Set was vanquished, this eye was restored by the wise god Thoth, who spat upon the wound and healed it.
The Egyptians long believed that the stars twinkling in the night sky represented the survival of the souls of the worthy dead; other survivors they thought were absorbed into the sun. During a certain period, solar veneration became a species of ancestor worship. The sloping entrance passage of the great pyramid pointed directly toward the Pole Star so that the soul of the king, when emerging from the tomb, could go straight to the stationary and established constellations of the fixed stars, the supposed abode of the kings.
When the oblique rays of the sun were observed penetrating earthward through an aperture in the clouds, it was believed that they betokened the letting down of a celestial stairway whereon the king and other righteous souls might ascend. "King Pepi has put down his radiance as a stairway under his feet whereon to ascend to his mother."
When Melchizedek appeared in the flesh, the Egyptians had a religion far above that of the surrounding peoples. They believed that a disembodied soul, if properly armed with magic formulas, could evade the intervening evil spirits and make its way to the judgment hall of Osiris, where, if innocent of "murder, robbery, falsehood, adultery, theft, and selfishness," it would be admitted to the realms of bliss. If this soul were weighed in the balances and found wanting, it would be consigned to hell, to the Devouress. And this was, relatively, an advanced concept of a future life in comparison with the beliefs of many surrounding peoples.
The concept of judgment in the hereafter for the sins of one's life in the flesh on earth was carried over into Hebrew theology from Egypt. The word judgment appears only once in the entire Book of Hebrew Psalms, and that particular psalm was written by an Egyptian. see Urantia Papers
The word 'Jehovah' is derived from beneha-elohim
The Elohim are also called "Watchers" by Enoch and if you
read Psalm 82: you find this;
"Jehovah takes his stand at the council of El to deliver judgement amoung the elohim." elohim is a plural noun and means the 'sons of the gods'. Gods? "You too are gods, sons of El Elyon, all of you". Jehovah is understood to acknowledge his counterparts when he attended the grand assembly of the deities: "God standth in the congregation of the mighty ; he judgeth amoung the gods... Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most high."
The 'Watchers' are those mentioned in the books of Enoch and Jubilees as those deiform beings who had mated with the earthly women. In Daniel the Watchers are akin to the Nephilim. The Nephilim are the children of the 'fallen ones', but the El-ohim, their parents are what we have called, "Watchers". Not all of them are bad . They were on earth to 'teach' humans how to plant crops and work metals for tools. They are not human.
Jehovah therefore is the leader of the Elohims and there
are 200 of them. So the 'sons of God' are actually the
'sons of the gods' plural, more than one. When we read
'let US make a man' in Genesis, we are refering to the
Elohims who combined DNA to make the first Adam. Read
it again; "Let US make man in OUR own image, after OUR
likness; Genesis 1:26 and 'Behold, the man is become as
one of US.' 3:22. This is a copy of Adam, not the true Adam as
they could not provide him with 'life' or the 'breath' of life.
This is confirmed in the Nag Hammidi scrolls.
The Enuma elish (The Babyloian epic), confirms this.
Another translation .. Enuma elish .. From Ancient Near Eastern Texts Translated by N. K. Sandars.
So as we see, Jehovah was not the true God. We think the
Hebrews mistranslated older Sumerian texts which changed the
true story to suite their Jewish 'god fearing' beliefs.
We offer this exerpt for your enlightenment:
From clay tablets which can be dated to about 1960 BC, found in Sumeria. They detail that, at that time, everything changed in the hitherto sacred land of Sumer when invaders came in from all sides: Akkadians from the north, Amorites from Syria, and Elamites from Persia. The text continues:
When they overthrew, when order they destroyed; Then like a deluge all things together consumed. Whereunto, oh Sumer! Did they change thee? The Sacred Dynasty from the Temple they exiled. This is the real version of the destruction of the Tower of Babel.
"They had come to Egypt, the Egyptians wrote, from Ta-Ur,
the 'Far/Foreign Land,' whose name Ur meant 'oldest' but could
have also been the actual place name - a place will known from
Mesopotamian and biblical records: the ancient city of Ur in
southern Mesopotamia. And the straits of the Red Sea, which
connected Mesopotamia and Egypt, were called Ta-Neter, the
'Place of the Gods,' the passage by which they had come to
Egypt. That the earliest gods did come from the biblical lands
of Shem is additionally borne out by the puzzling fact that the
names of these olden gods were of 'Semitic' (Akkadian)
derivation. Thus we have Ptah, which had meaning in Egyptian,
'he who fashioned things by carving and opening up' in the
- Zecharia Sitchin, The Wars of Gods and Men
It was at this stage of Sumerian history that the empire
fell and Abraham was forced to flee northward from the city of
Ur. But what had happened to the Anunnaki, the Grand Assembly of
Gods who had established everything? The text continues:
"Ur is destroyed, bitter is its lament. The country's blood now fills its holes like hot bronze in a mould. Bodies dissolve like fat in the sun. Our temple is destroyed. Smoke lies on our cities like a shroud. The gods have abandoned us like migrating birds."
On the 'Widow's Son' page we related how Abraham was susposed to recover the lost wisdom of the Olai. These are also the Anunnaki, or 'former Gods' who abondoned the city. These are the true gods or 'other gods' mentioned above. Jehovah (Enlil) destroys the city in a rage because the priests are worshiping the true god and teaching skills such as geometry and other sciences and arts. Abraham left because the Anunnaki left.
Archeological proof that there was a catastrophe.
From the web page, NIPPUR - SACRED CITY OF ENLIL ...Directly below the Kassite palace in Area WB was an Old Babylonian house (c. 1750 B.C.) owned by a family of bakers, who used the front half of the building as an office and shop and the space outside for the baking of bread and meat [Gibson 1978a]. Texts found in the house show that the family baked on contract for the city administration, temples, and individuals.
On the floor of the building we found dozens of objects left in place-pottery, a bread oven, grinding tools, cuneiform tablets, and other items. The debris on the last occupation floor gave the impression that the occupants had left suddenly, expecting to return soon, but never did. In time, sand drifted over the artifacts on the floor, and the walls of the house were eroded by rain and finally collapsed. This dramatic instance of sudden abandonment brought into clear focus evidence of similar breaks in stratigraphy in other Old Babylonian contexts on the site.
We realized that there had been a crisis in the history of the city that had resulted in a total, or almost total, abandonment. The cessation of dated texts at around 1720 B.C., noticed by earlier excavators but not discussed [McCown and Haines 1967: 74-76], had to be correlated with the archaeological evidence.
I knew that there was a similar halt in dated texts at other sites in Babylonia (e. g., Ur, Larsa, Isin) during the reign of Samsuiluna, and I knew that only those cities lying along or close to the river's western branches, such as Babylon, Kish, Sippar, Borsippa, and Dilbat, continued to produce dated texts.
I began to suggest in lectures, as early as 1973-74, that there may have been a general catastrophe in Babylonia at that time, due to a major environmental crisis, probably the shifting of water away from the main branch of the Euphrates that had passed through Nippur. Elizabeth Stone, in an important restudy of Tablet Hill [Stone 1977; 1987], summarized the available evidence for the crisis and abandonrnent at Nippur.
Hermann Gasche [1989: 109-43] subsequently laid out the evidence, in very graphic form, for a general collapse of central and southern Babylonia during the period.
Now take this one step further. Nimrod is a 'craftsman'. He has the knowledge obtained from the Anunnaki. He is described as a person who started a revolt against Jehovah. But Genesis 10: 9, says he was a mighty hunter before the 'lord'. Nimrod's name is from the verb "let us revolt." He is said to be a mighty hunter (gibbor tsayidh) in the sight of the Lord, but the language has a allegorical meaning. He becomes a tyrant or despot leading an organized rebellion against the rule of Jehovah. "He hunts not animals, but rather the souls of men". ...trying to save them from the rule of the Elohim lords who prefered for them to be their slaves.
The female consort of El Elyon was Asherah or Ashtoreth and the Cannanite religion was firmly centered around fertility. For the Isrealites, this god-and-goddess concept came to an end when they dismissed Ashtoreth and pledged their allegiance to the one and only Jehovah, who was appropriated from El Elyon. But this pledge was not made in the time of Abraham, nor even in the time of Moses - it occured much later in the time of Samuel the judge. Samuel 7:4 says they put away their worship of Ashtereth and Baal and served the "lord" only.
The word Ur means 'lord'. Is-ra-el means 'soldier of El'. Bethel means 'House of El'. So we question which 'lord' this was. We find that 'lord' is actually Enlil, the same as El Elyon or Baal in this instance. see 2 Kings 21:3, Jechoniah's great-grandfather, King Manasseh, has once set up a temple to Baal, the son of El Elyon. Jehovah and El Elyon were synonymous with God (by Hebrew and Canaanite defination, respectively). Manasseh had apparently defined the surpreme deity by worshipping god's son who was actually Enlil. This is the same being we now identify as God in the KJ bible.
The Anunnaki Legacy
When the Ziggurat at Ur was excuvated in 1923, they found complex remains which gave positive proof that the home of Abraham was well structured and had, hospitals, factories, schools, offices, and law courts. Clay tablets had shop keepers records, educational records, medical records, lawyers records, shopkeepers records and mathmetical tables for extracting square and cube roots. The homes were two-storied villas with up to fourteen rooms. The walls were plastered and whitewashed. There were wash basins to remove sand from the feet at the entry way. The inner courts were neatly paved and had stairways rising to the upper floors. They even had indoor plumbing with drainage systems. Abraham was from a wealthy family, his great grandfather being king Ur-nammu who built the ziggurat Temple of Ur.
In historical terms, this total collapse of the Sumerian empire follows the founding of Babylon by King Ur-Baba in about 2000 BC. Indeed, the story of the Tower of Babel and the resultant wrath of Jehovah precisely fits the time-frame of the Sumerians' own abandonment by the Anunnaki.
For a reason which is not made clear in the Bible, the Genesis text explains that Jehovah was not happy about the Tower of Babel and so he "did come down, and did confound the language of all the Earth". Biblical theriosts therefore must consider knowledge as evil. But what if El Elyon/Jehovah was just jealous?
The Sumerian historical documents tell much the same
story, except that the confounding of language is far better
explained by the hordes of foreign invaders who came into the
region. It transpires that this invasion was the direct result
of friction among the Anunnaki, for at Anu's retirement from
the Grand Assembly his second eldest son
assumed the presidency. He proclaimed that he was master of all the Earth,
although his brother Enki could retain sovereignty of
the seas. Enki was not at all happy about his brother's claim
because, although Enlil-Samuel was the elder of the two, his mother,
Ki, was their father Anu's junior sister, whereas Enki's mother,
Antu, was the senior sister. True kingship, claimed Enki,
progressed as a matrilinear institution through the female line,
and by this right of descent Enki maintained that he was the
first-born of the royal succession:
More proof of this comes from The Enuma Elish Our page.
I am Enki...the great brother of the gods. I am he who has been born as the first son of the divine Anu.
As a result, the people of Babylon announced their allegiance to Enki and his son Marduk - but this was all too much for Enlil-Jehovah. Having lost his popularity, he opened the gates of Sumer to let in invaders from all sides. The scribes recorded that he, the vengeful Enlil-Jehovah, brought about the "great and terrible storm" which caused the annihilation of all the Sumerian culture so that their language was no longer predominant and there was a "great confusion of tongues".
All the work which had been accomplished in building up a unique civilisation over thousands of years was destroyed in one fell swoop by Enlil-Jehovah, simply because he would not share authority with his brother Enki. The records confirm that, at that moment in Sumerian history, the Grand Assembly of the Anunnaki vacated their seats and departed "like migrating birds".
For all that had occurred up to that point, an urgent and significant change in kingly procedure was necessary because the Anunnaki Star Fire (derived from Shem) was no longer available. A substitute had to be found. As previously mentioned, the priestly 'Scarlet Women' or sacred servents had been purpose-bred for this; but it was clear that, however carefully mated, their essence would weaken through the generations.
Only through the female bloodline could there be kings.
Keeping in mind that 'destruction' is brought about by Enlil-Jehovah because he hates humans, we now have a clear picture of what the Jews thought was their true god. They feared him, they were soo afraid that 'obey' became a household word still used today by christians. This also defines the role of Tubal-Cain and Nimrod as they were very well educated and knew this false God was causing trouble. The uneducated Sumerians who were not privledged to the 'knowledge' created the worship of the false god because they weren't smart enough to realize he was only jealous of his brother and punished them for the whole episode.
In the event, the creation of a more permanent and versatile substitute was not a problem, for this was the province of a group of previously trained metallurgists whom Enki had called the Master Craftsmen. The first of these great metallurgists to be trained was Tubal-cain the Vulcan - who has been called a sixth-generation descendant of Cain. (We dispute this genealogy reference because Genesis 10: 2 relates that the line is thus; Noah's sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth. Japhethites; Gomer, Magog, Madai, Tubal, Meshech and Taris.) Tubal-Cain and Nimrod are remembered today in modern Freemasonry.
In consideration of the Bible's New Testament symbology, it is of particular interest to note that Jesus' father Joseph was himself recorded in the early Gospels as being a Master Craftsman. In modern English-language Bibles, Joseph is described as a 'carpenter', but this is a blatant mistranslation. The word 'carpenter' was wrongly derived from the Greek ho-tekton which actually defined a Master of the Craft - not a woodworker, but a learned alchemical metallurgist in the manner of his ancestral forebears.
Yes, Abraham left to escape a corrupted city whose residents
were worshiping the false god, but this god isn't the one you've
been taught was the wrong one. Egypt was the place he was sent
to recover the True God's knowledge and the 'essence' described
above, which we know from other sources, the true Egyptians had.
We know this is true because the Egyptians were also highly
educated. Their knowledge came from the Atlantians, the
They were tall, giant, (in Hebrew the word for giants is "Anakim") and have also been called the Nordics or Blonds, even though not all of them had blond hair or blue eyes. It is easy to see their Lyran and Sirian roots in their appearance. They also glowed a golden color. Their symbol is the winged disk, which not only represents their starships, but also symbolic of the ability of the spirit to fly free while remembering it's wise, divi`ne source.
These Anunnaki were later called the Elohim, and Nephilim (children of those who descended, came down). The Anunnaki were NOT "the" Elohim, (evil ones) but Elohim became the word used for the plural of god. These beings created modern humans from earlier human forms by genetic manipulation. Some of these beings, called Watchers, mated with humans, and this was considered a crime by the 'Shining Ones'. One of the Watchers was named Shemjaza, and Yahweh was not one of the Shining Ones. Yahweh is shortened to YHWH meaning "I am that I am" because of the statement made to Moses.
Another interuptation says, Jehovah emerged as the God of Moses and the children of Israel when they returned to Canaan from Egypt. The book of Exodus further explains how God told Moses that he was the same god who spoke to Abraham, except that Abraham had called him El Shaddai (Lord of the Mountain) because he did not know the divine name Jehovah (Exodus 6:3). The Jehovah of the Jews (El Elyon of the Canaanites) was, therefore, synonymous with Enlil of the Anunnaki, son of the great Anu. In the Mesopotamian tradition, Enlil was referred to as Ili Kur-gal meaning Great Mountain Lord, which is why Abraham addressed him by the equivalent of that name. But Yahweh is the same as El Elyon, or the one whom we call the 'evil one'. So our question is, when did Abraham discover that Jehovah was a false god and when did he become a priest of Melchizedek and convert to the worship of the true god Enki?
Enki and his wife created humans - ie. Adam. Ninhursag herself gave birth to Adam in order to make him of pure Anunnaki decent. Adam was the first true human but he wasn't a slave. Genesis relates that the god made cloths for them and they became 'equal' to the Gods. The Sumerian texts also relate that there were seven sets of twins, each implanted into a surrogate mothers womb with the semen of Enki. These were the 'slave workers'. So this makes Enki 'the true God' and the creator of mankind.
As we mentioned, the true Egyptians, the descendents of the Olai, were called the 'caretakers' of Gods wisdom. This wisdom and knowledge of building appeared to be 'magic' to the common man. At that time, religion and magic were as one and the priest or King who could do magic was looked upon as a god by the people. We are not sure if this was what God intended. We did discover that all of the 'knowledge' was kept from the common people by the 'Caretakers'. They would not share the 'knowledge' with the people, thus making them ignorant and unaware of the Laws of God. This should explain why the 'common people worshiped idols'. They had no knowledge except what Abraham and the Hyksos taught them. It is said, Shem taught the Pure Freemasonry, (at that time alchemical) to Abraham, and the science was transmitted from generation to generation.
We are not sure if Abraham followed the True god, but he is a Hyksos,
and that lead him to the Hyksos rulers. Abraham taught the sciences
to the people. Why did he bother to teach them geometry and
other skills? Remember in the Nag when it explains that Sabaoth
created a firstborn called Israel. Abraham was righteous.
Was he trying to convert these people? Apparently he was.
Only the 'new' generation ( 2 generations after Abraham ) became the twelve tribes of Israel. We have Jacob's sons, but the tribes did not include Joseph or any of his sons. Levi it seems, was a priest of the false god because he didn't know the difference..and he murders several people and does wicked things to animals. Jacob said so. Levi then cannot be a priest of the True God, NO WAY, NO HOW.
(Genesis) 6:4 it is written:
"The Lord said, "My breath shall not abide in man forever, since he too is flesh; let the days be allowed him be one hundred and twenty years." It was then, and later too, that the Nephilim appeared on earth - when the divine beings cohabited with the daughters of men, who bore them offspring. They were the heroes of old, men of renown." The 'daughters of men' are the offspring of Cain which are from the evil source Enlil/Elohim.
It is thought, by some, that the Nephilim were sinful gods who "fell from grace." They fell, alright, in their spaceships. This can also be seen as symbolic. The "fall" having to do with lowering one's frequency from spirit into physical matter, which is slower and denser. "Fall" also meaning forgetting one's true Source. As life forms choose to come to Earth their vibration goes through changes so that they are more matched to the frequency of Earth, their new home. Now these ET's literally came down from space, but souls choosing to incarnate upon the earth also had to change their vibrational frequencies.
The United States Airforce never wanted to explain the UFO's many of us have seen. Now we know why they are back! Checking out their offspring..
The Anunnaki gave the humans knowledge of how to be this human being, how to take care of themselves, gave them guidelines, rules, for proper living. This is how the Sumerians and the other cultures got their first set of laws.
Some of the Anunnaki later procreated with the beings who were on Earth at that time. The souls of those who became human came to Earth by their own free will to experience physicality. Several other extraterrestrial civilizations later contributed their own input into human DNA and created many races of humans and other creatures (a couple of which have since left this planet - such as the dinosaurs). However, these hybrids (our missing link in our evolution) helped the Anunnaki mine their gold. Enki as mentioned above was first to come to Earth and was here even before mankind was created. Enki used DNA to make the first Adam. The Sumerian texts called mankind the "Black-Headed People."
As we related on Passage page 1, writings from the Nag Hammidi Library concur that the being who thought he was god, made the first Adam combining DNA. Sophia interviened and gave the third Adam a soul and therefore an escape route if he learned where he came from and the secrets we have described here. There is a 'way' out.
After some time, the humans evolved to a point where they began to question their purpose and their future. They rebelled against their "creators," the Anunnaki. The humans wanted to have the nectar of the gods for themselves. Why shouldn't they be able to have their free will, live as long as their gods did? Why shouldn't they have power and wealth or whatever they felt they lacked? And then the sad realization that they were NOT like "the gods." Read the early sad epics of Enkidu and Gilgamesh who desperately wanted to be divine and have everlasting life, only to find out that their mortal side won out. You will also find out more about the flood and the Anunnaki from the Epic of Gilgamesh.
[For more Biblical references to the Anakim, Anakites, Anunnaki, Nephilim, etc., please see: Numbers: 13:22; 13:28-33; Deut: 1:28; 2:1-; 9:2; Joshua: 11:21-22; 14:12; 14:15; 15:13-14; Judges: 1:20. Many of these giants were the result of Anunnaki and human reproduction, such as Gilgamesh.]
"Other Elohim are occasionally mentioned throughout the
older parts of the Old Testament. The most important of them is
Baal, usually translated as 'the Owner'. In the Canaan of the
times, there were many Owners, one to each village, in the same
way that many Catholic cities today have their own Virgin Marys,
and yet they are all the same one."
- Julian Jaynes, The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind
So Enoch called the Watchers or the Elohim evil. These are the corrupt ones, the ones who desired power and did experiments with DNA. These were evil. They blew themselves up trying to destroy the dinasours. Edgar Cayce's readings on Atlantis corroborate this story.
"The Elohim originally included not only foreign
superstitious forms, but also all that host of Heaven which was
revealed in poetry to the shepherds of the desert, now as an
encampment of warriors, nor as careering in chariots of fire,
and now as winged messengers, ascending and descending the
vault of Heaven, to communicate the will of God to mankind."
- General Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma
The Enlil (evil one) had these words, "And God said, Let 'us' make man in 'our' image, after 'our' likeness...." - Genesis 1:26
