Key concept: How Satan fathers the antichrist and yet is not imprisoned like the other angels who interbred with human women.
As this study proceeds, you’ll notice that all the ancient mythologies of the gods and their demigods / offspring report them to have been on earth only in ancient times. Biblically, this corresponds to the time prior to the flood of Noah. Why only then?
The Adversary had become severely restricted from making contact with human beings on the day Adam and Eve experienced spiritual death limiting them to just the four dimensions of time-space. The first woman was seduced when she directly engaged in conversation with a spiritual being. Her son Cain had to be informed that there was a spiritual being stalking him. Humans had lost contact with that spiritual, unearthly, hyper-dimension. This is the main reason why encounters with gods / aliens aren’t commonly reported.
Peter Pan explains the solution to the limitations imposed by human senses. (Can you recognize his hermaphroditic appearance and its significance?)
Even in the millennia following the flood, Creator God by whatever name, and his sons and their sons were understood to be real and were feared and revered and appealed to for benefits and association with them desired. Remember, for both holy and unholy beings, humans have free will to invite or reject involvement.
“And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. (Matthew 13:54-58)
Over time, people exalted themselves and stopped believing in the gods or creation. This line of thinking culminated in the purely materialistic Greek world view which has dominated Western culture to this day.
Early in the sixth century B.C. first attempts were started to understand the world in new ways. Until then the mystical world of Homer was explained through tales… about the gods…
In the second half of the fifth century B.C. the tradition of the Sophists emerged. As travelling teachers they were worldly, liberal minded humanists…each person had his individual experiences and individual truth. Trying to define an objective reality was pointless…
Socrates… turned his back on science and cosmology and pursued ethics and logic…With his dialectic method of inquiry Socrates developed one of the core columns of Western thinking…Socrates method…True knowledge was something that could not be learned by listening to other people it had to be personally attained.
Plato…taught that every material object also had a transcendental aspect to it…The immortal soul was in contact with the divine prior to birth but lost this connection due to amnesia when entering the physical body… Logos…a divine ordering principle behind all things and events…[was] integrated…into his philosophy of an understandable world.
Aristotle…turned Plato’s principles of a divine order upside down…understanding of the natural world could be attained by perceiving the world with the five senses…logic, empiricism and natural science…turned out to be trend-setting for scientific research of the West.
According to this line of reasoning, the gods will make a comeback when, as with the God of the Bible, they are believed and received into their domain. Is this happening? Absolutely, with the New Age Movement for the spiritually minded and equating aliens with the ancient gods for the physically minded.
Another reason given in the Bible is that the gods who were sexually involved with females during this time were imprisoned. More on this in the post on Noah, but staying on topic, what about the angels / gods who didn’t engage in this misconduct? Why aren’t they on earth now?
Who says they haven’t had “boots on the ground”, hiding in plain sight, all along, accomplishing their will behind the scenes with their human allies? Consider how the CIA operates.
The Bible states unequivocally that spirital beings are the true rulers of the world. Their prime directive? Permanent war to wipe out humanity.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Eph 6:12)
There is an aspect of “fathering” that maintains Lucifer’s freedom from judgment for sex crimes. A “father“, especially in ancient times, is another word for “absolute authority, leader, teacher, one to whom obedience is given.”
“And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee…”(II Ki 6:1)
“And the king of Israel said unto Elisha…My father…” (II Ki 6:21)
Sonship is defined not by genetics, but is conferred, like knighthood by the head of the nation, on those who execute the father’s will. Adoption is exactly how sinful unspiritual humans become righteous spiritual sons of God.
“God sent forth his Son…To redeem them that were under the law [of sin and death], that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” (Gal 4:4-6)
The conferring of sonship is exemplified in The Godfather saga. Of Vito Corleone’s three sons, the older two never share in the inheritance because they go their own ways, both out of pride, the oldest out of arrogance and the middle child out of resentment. Only Michael, the youngest, inherits the father’s dominion, because he submits to his father’s will. Michael in turn names his nephew Vincent, not his son, as his heir because Vincent, not his son, is just like him.
Until the son receives his inheritance, which includes authority to make his own decisions and power to execute his own will on the family holdings, his submission to his father is no different from that of a servant.
“Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.” (Galatians 4:1-2)
A true son is distinguished from a bastard by the discipline and training he endures to make him capable of carrying out his father’s legacy.
“If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? (Hebrews 12:7-9)
The definition of “father by adoption” applies as much to Satan as it does to God.
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. I know that ye are Abraham’s [genetic] seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:31-44)
Under the terms of the new covenant, the Seed of the Woman / The Christ empowers us to become sons of God through spiritual bonding of our God-given spirit with the Holy Spirit. We can logically conclude that this is the same means by which the adopted sons of the Adversary carry out his will.
“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love [union] of God [to the believer] perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked…Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” (I John 2:3-27)
It stands to reason that we no longer need human intermediaries / priests, so Jesus’ instructions not to call any human “father” is obviously not referring to a family member or even a respected leader but a human spiritual authority who claims absolute authority, as a cult leader.
“Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: all therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues. And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even The Promised Seed / Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even The Promised Seed / Christ. (Matthew 23:1-10)
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits…A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit…Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name save cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:11-23)
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God [opens up questioning if scavanger animals are of God] is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.” (I Timothy 4:1-6)
We can most easily understand the religious aspect of fatherhood in Catholic priests who have authority to absolve from sin, and Muslim imams like Abdullah Azzam, “the father of the modern global jihad”, whose directives are carried out to the death by the deeply devout. The combination of the occult with secular government is found in Hitler’s “Fatherland“, the Nazi government officials to whom the Nazis gave absolute obedience. Think “Fuhrer“.
With this background we can now recognize the undercover operation when Satan adopts his own evil human sons to carry out his will in high positions of government both religious and secular.
“Ahaz sent messengers to Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, saying, I am thy servant and thy son: come up, and save me out of the hand of the king of Syria, and out of the hand of the king of Israel, which rise up against me. And Ahaz took the silver and gold that was found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king’s house, and sent it for a present to the king of Assyria. (II Ki 16:7-8)
Note here that Ahaz asked to be made the son of the Assyrian. Ahaz joined the expansionist Assyrian empire not just by signing his name to a political treaty but by legally changing his own identity to merge with the high king. He became an adopted son of the king who is the human personification of the god.
Consider Daniel’s role in first the Neo-Babylonian then the Persian governments. He and his three companions were the sons of God by union with his Spirit, carrying out his will in opposition to the Adversary’s will. The first example of adversarial activity is seen in the attempts to change their identification as sons of God to sons of Satan.
“…of the children of Judah, Daniel / God is my judge, Hananiah / Yahweh has been gracious , Mishael / Who is what God is?, and Azariah / Yaweh has helped…the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar / Bel or Baal or Lord protect his life; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach / Command of moon god Aku / ; and to Mishael, of Meshach / Who is what Aku is?; and to Azariah, of Abednego / Slave of Nego (probably the god of writing). (Daniel 1:6-7
The second assault was an attempt to incorporate evil through consuming foods which had been transformed into the body and blood of the gods through occult sacrificial procedures.
“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” (Daniel 1:8)
Daniel and his three compatriots chose Yahweh over the Babylonian gods even when facing certain death. Their commitment, freely given, is what allowed Yahweh to use them in the highest positions of world power.
“As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar. And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king. And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm. And Daniel continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus [Medo-Persian conqueror of the Neo-Babylonian Empire].” (Dan 1:6-21)
“Then the king [Nebuchadnezzar] made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.” (Dan 2:48)
Daneil was used by God as an international diplomat in what had become the center of world government. In theocratic State Departments this routinely involved communicating with the spirit beings understood at that time to be ruling all the kingdoms of the earth.
“Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you. I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me. How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation. I Nebuchadnezzar was at rest in mine house, and flourishing in my palace: I saw a dream which made me afraid, and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions of my head troubled me. Therefore made I a decree to bring in all the wise men of Babylon before me, that they might make known unto me the interpretation of the dream. Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers: and I told the dream before them; but they did not make known unto me the interpretation thereof. But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose name was Belteshazzar, according to the name of my God, and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods: and before him I told the dream, saying, O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation thereof.” (Daniel 4:1-9)
“It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage. Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” (Dan 6:1-3)
Daniel and Ezekiel in Babylon, Jeremiah and Isaiah in Jerusalem, and Joseph and Moses in Egypt became involved in crises where intelligence gathering is of the utmost importance, and negotiations with other nations’ leaders included a hierarchy of ruling gods in the heavens.
“whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding…and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince. Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him. (Dan 9:25-26, 11:1-2)
“And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh…And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace…What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh…famine shall consume the land…Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt…keep food in the cities…against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine…And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? And Pharaoh said…unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt…and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.” (Gen 41:8,15-43″
”And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet / Press Secretary. Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land…And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD [versus the gods of Egypt being the boss] when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them…And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent. And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.” (Ex 7:1-12)
“Then there came again and touched me [Daniel] one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee?…I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: (Daniel 10:5-20)
In his famous prophesy precisely predicting future political events, Daniel’s angelic messenger clearly defines the true rulers of the world empires as spirit beings who battle for control in hyper-dimensions accessible only by other spirit beings.
“In those days I Daniel was mourning [isolating and not eating] three full weeks [to separate from the physical domain to access the spiritual]. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled…Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude…Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia…and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come… ” (Dan 10:12-20)
Co-regency was a common practice in ancient kingdoms, especially when the primary ruler was unable to get out and about among the populace.
“And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD: and Jotham his son was over the king’s house, judging the people of the land. (II Chro 26:21)
Co-regency of a human ruler with a spirit being is understood to be a reality for the believing kings of Israel and Judah.
“For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king. Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.” (Psa 89:18-19)
Rule by co-regents reconciles the biblical account of spirit rulers with human history’s account of human rulers, and even pagan accounts of spirit rulers.
”Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself…That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid. Thus saith the LORD to his anointed / elected , to Cyrus,
- whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him;
- I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
- I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight:
- I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
- I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places,
that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.” (Isa 44:24-45:6)
Co-regency is described in the preamble to Hammurabi’s Code.
When Anu the Sublime, King of the Anunaki, and Bel, the lord of Heaven and earth, who decreed the fate of the land, assigned to Marduk, the over-ruling son of Ea, God of righteousness, dominion over earthly man, and made him great among the Igigi, they called Babylon by his illustrious name, made it great on earth, and founded an everlasting kingdom in it, whose foundations are laid so solidly as those of heaven and earth; then Anu and Bel called by name me, Hammurabi, the exalted prince, who feared God, to bring about the rule of righteousness in the land, to destroy the wicked and the evil-doers; so that the strong should not harm the weak; so that I should rule over the black-headed people like Shamash, and enlighten the land, to further the well-being of mankind.
Being “called by name” signifies joining with God / the gods, the adoption process whereby the father assigns sonship for the purpose of carrying on his legacy. This is what happened when Gaius Julius Caesar adopted his nephew Gaius Octavius Thurinus, who upon the adoption took over his new father’s work, including his social and political roles, i.e. identity, as signified by taking his name – Gaius Julius Caesar. This is what the Babylonians tried to accomplish when they renamed Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah as described above.
Have we been misled by archeologists and historians into believing that the other kingdoms’ reports of co-regency with supernatural gods was only an imaginative myth?
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish 1) the host of the high ones that are on high, 2) and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. (Isaiah 24:21-22)
“And I…saw a beast rise up out of the sea [above the firmament], having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast…And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth:” (Revelation 13:1-3, 19:19-21)
Daniel’s spirit guide further identifies beastly spiritual beings.
“In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters. Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea [above the firmament]. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
- The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
- And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
- After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
- After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their their lives were prolonged for a season and a time. I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me. I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things. These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart. (Daniel 7)
One interpretation of this vision is that the beasts symbolize the rulers. While this can be true to some extent, this perspective has its limitations. The first beast can be associated with Nebuchadnezzar only to a certain extent, but not in all respects.
”I [Nebuchadnezzar] saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven; He cried aloud, and said thus…Let his heart be changed from man’s, and let a beast’s [some creature, not necessarily a known animal] heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him….This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the most High, which is come upon my lord the king: That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will...And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? At the same time my reason returned unto me…and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me. Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase. (Dan 4:13-16, 24-25, 34-37)
Another interpretation of the prophetic beasts is that they symbolize the empires. This also can be true to a degree. A contemporary example of duality where the leader of the empire represents the entire empire would be “The Big Three” in the Yalta Conference, where it is recognized that Churchill = England, Roosevelt = America, Stalin = Russia. As Louis XIV, the Sun King said about his absolute power, “I am the State.”
However, Daniel describes actual creatures with bodies that are destroyed. These beasts/unknown creatures are like the beasts described in heaven, which gives us to understand that they are hyperdimensional spirit beings. The difference being, of course, that the sanctified beasts worship God and the fallen beasts worship Satan.
“And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.” (Rev 4:6-7)
It seems to me that we are missing a perspective that the true, unseen heads of these world empires are not simply demonic spirits possessing and controlling the human leaders, or even human-appearing angelic beings, but actual beasts as described, who used to be openly known and worshipped as such.
Mesopotamian snake goddess, Egyptian lion-headed Sekhmet, Greek half-goat Pan. (I’m not saying that I’ve discovered that the facial and postural similarities between the Big Three and the ancient gods mean anything.)
Can we bring our post-modern materialistic selves to accept that the current human rulers of the kingdoms of the world are co-regents with spiritual beings as clearly stated in Daniel’s visions? If so, then the bizarre configuration described in the fourth and last empire makes perfect sense. The unnamed they who mingle themselves with the seed of men don’t need to be defined because we already know, from our biblical world view, that they are the true power brokers, the spirit beings who rule from the back rooms. This concept is fascinatingly portrayed in a short story by Neil Gaiman, the well-known author of American Gods.
“And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potter’s clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” (Dan 2:40-43)
And this brings us to the bizarre but true history of the Seed of the Serpent. Since the seed of the serpent is made in the likeness of his father, let’s start with the original. The best way to know any character in literature is to start at his introduction and proceed through the story as his actions reveal his character.
The serpent whose offspring would battle the offspring of the woman is a main character in the Biblical account of human history. He appears at the very beginning of the story, where the Hebrew word for serpent is nachash (where ch is pronounced “k” as in school).
“Now the serpent / nachash was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent / nachash…of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it…And the serpent / nachash said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw…a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat…And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent / nachash beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent / nachash, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go…And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” (Gen 3:1-15)
This nachash serpent is usually assumed to be a dumb animal, possessed and controlled by Satan. But hold up! Put this chapter of the whole story in its proper place. This was creation before the fall, when not only the two humans but the animals were hyperdimensional beings. When the woman ate the fruit, she dragged all living things down with her to spiritually dead four dimensions.
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with The Promised Seed / Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity [futility], not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now… they… groan…waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of…body.” (Romans 8:16-23)
The redemption of all creation from vanity / death back to immortality occurs when the Seed of the Woman triumphs over the Seed of the Serpent, paradoxically, through death.
“For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?” Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. But we see Yahweh’s Savior / Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one:” (Hebrews 2:5-11)
“But now is The Promised Seed / Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death [to all living beings], by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.” (I Corinthians 15:20-26)
This New Testament passage expands on the Old Testament prophecy of the restoration, through unity with God, of peace to and eternal life to a conflict- and death-stricken world for all living beings.
“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord…with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked…The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for [the whole, not just the people in] the earth shall be full of the knowledge of [joined / baptized in identity through the Spirit with] the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11:1-9)
Apparently this sentient, subtle, clever animal thought, like Eve, that he would improve his station in life by allying himself with the rebel angel. Like Eve, the result of his rebellion against God was immediate genetic modification. In his case, he lost appendages – legs and/or wings – indicating that originally he had them, in the form of a dragon.
As for enmity between women and snakes, that seems to be genetic as well.
However, scripture also indisputably identifies a permanently immortal serpent / nachash by other names – dragon, Satan and the Devil – and links the various personifications taken by the Messiah’s primary adversary. Once again we see “on earth as it is in heaven” – parallels between earthly and heavenly beings.
True to form, the path this being takes through the story is a crooked and often hidden one. Looking into Job, much of which is a prequel to Genesis providing a glimpse of the earliest events on earth, we catch sight of the leader nachash during creation.
“He [God] divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud…his hand hath formed the crooked serpent / nachash…the thunder of his [God’s] power who can understand? (Job 26:6-14)
Job’s account of nachash at creation is attested by the pre-flood Sumerian account of their serpent-dragon called Kur. This can be translated as outcast, exile, outlaw, foreigner, alien, which points to the rebellious angel thrown out of the kingdom of heaven in outer space, whose dwelling place became the earthly deep, the abzu, the abyss. When we look at distorted myths through the lens of the Bible, we can glimpse truth that is always at the core of the best lies.
- An, the heaven-god [YHVH], carried off the heaven,
- while Enlil, the air-god [i.e. the immortal son of God Adam whose abode was in the atmosphere under the firmament], carried off the earth. [was given dominion over the earth by God]
- It was then that the foul deed was committed. The goddess Ereshkigal [this would be the, originally, immortal human woman] was carried off violently into the nether world [she experienced death, a violent drop from the spiritual hyper dimensions of eternity to the four dimensions of mortal time and space]
- perhaps by Kur [the dragon/serpent]
- Thereupon Enki [Lucifer, Adam’s adversary], the water-god, whose Sumerian origin is uncertain, but who toward the end of the third millennium B. C. gradually became one of the most important deities of the Sumerian pantheon, set out in a boat, in all probability [note, this is purely guesswork by the myth itself] to attack Kur and avenge the abduction of the goddess Ereshkigal.
- Kur fought back savagely with all kinds of stones, large and small. Moreover it attacked Enki’s boat, front and rear, with the primeval waters [in outer space] which it no doubt controlled.
- Here our brief prologue passage ends, since the author of “Gilgamesh, Enkidu, and the Nether World” is not interested in the dragon story primarily…
It is not at all unlikely that the Sumerian passage ended when it did because it couldn’t reveal that Enki/Lucifer, the liar, the “lord of the abyss” who claims to be the savior of mankind, is himself the abductor who worked through the earthly dragon to drag the immortal woman into the nether world of death.
This prototype fire-breathing dragon is so important that he warrents an entire chapter in the Bible describing his powerful attributes.
“Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears? Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.
Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.
Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. By his [s]neesings [snortings] a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.
In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves. The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon[chain mail].
He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear...Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.” (Job 41)
As the king over all the children of pride, i.e. the leader of all rebellion against God, he is set for destruction at the end of time.
“For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain...In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent / nachash, even leviathan that crooked serpent / nachash; and he shall slay the dragon / tannin that is in the sea.” (Isa 26:21-27:1) [This sea is above the firmament, so in outer space AKA the 2nd heaven which is destroyed in the end along with its inhabitants. Read In the Beginning post for more information on this location.]
A parallel passage in Revelation describes the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy.
“And there was war in heaven…And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him..And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war…and his name is called The Word of God…And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations…And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords…And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army…And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever…And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first [original] heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” (Rev 12:7-12; 19:11-20; 20:10, 21:1)
Continuing our quest for this reptilian shape-shifter, we find that “serpent” is also translated from another Hebrew word – seraph. (We usually encounter the plural form “seraphim” where “im” ending serves the same pluralizing function in Hebrew as “s” in English.) There is a clear connection between the two as the two Hebrew words are freely interchanged and translated into the same word serpent in the following passage.
“And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the LORD sent fiery serpents / seraphim nachashim among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery-serpent / seraph, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent / nachash of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent / nachash had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent / nachash of brass, he lived.” (Nu 21:5-9)
“…the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery-serpents / seraphim…(Deut 8:14-15)
Like the nachashim, seraphim are both earthly snakes and sons of God in heaven. The verb form means “burning”. The adjective “fiery” can mean “brilliantly shining” as captured in the image of polished brass. In another sense this characterizes the power that these beings have over life and death with the use of fire, as with cauterizing a festering wound or inflicting a toxin-induced burning pain or microorganism-induced fever or utter destruction.
“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.” (Isa 6:1-6)
Images of ancient Mesopotamian gods bear a striking resemblance to the biblical description of the seraphim, This would be because they were among the fallen angels. We know that Lucifer fell from the position of an angelic caste called the cherubim.
“Thus saith the LORD God…Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so…Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee…therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God…thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness…” (Eze 28:12-17)
According to the statement in Ezekiel, Lucifer was “anointed” and “set” in the position of cherub, like a high priest. We can logically conclude, then, that the looks of cherubim or seraphim described in the Bible are not intrinsic to the individual beings, but assumed while serving in that role.
However, Lucifer’s appearance as nachash is so consistent as to give us a means of identification. “Mysteriously,” virtually identical worship of the serpent in his own form is found in every culture around the world.
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.” (Revelation 12:7-13)
Apparently there really are reptilian aliens whose leader will reveal himself to the world. Scripture confirms the alien investigators’ reports that these beings are “shape-shifters”.
“I Daniel lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude…and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength.” (Daniel 9:2-8) with “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Hebrews 13:2)
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (II Corinthians 11:13-14)
This would explain the discrepancies between internal biblical descriptions as well as between biblical and other ancient sources’ anthropomorphic depictions of these reptilian beings. It may also be that the fallen angels were trying to recreate heaven, and simply made themselves up as best they could into their desired, more exalted role.
A key method for tracking one single individual through name changes and a maze of mythic deceptions is through the many titles granted to him in recognition of his actions and inheritances. For example, Caesar Augustus had many titles, all of which attributed aspects of divine power. All of them are also recognized as appropriated titles of The Promised Seed / Prophesied Savior / Christ. Bingo. Caesar the first Roman emperor, and anyone taking this title as claim to be his heir, is Antichrist.
- Divi Filius, meaning ‘Son of the Divine,’ or ‘Son of God,’ was his favorite title. This title appears on almost every coin minted by Augustus.
- Dominus in Latin, or Kyrios in Greek, which means ‘Lord.’
- Soter, meaning ‘Savior,’ a title conveying that he had saved the empire from internal political instability, financial ruin, and external threats by foreign powers.
- Pontifex Maximus, meaning ‘High Priest’ of the chief god Jupiter / Zeus who ruled through him.
This divine king brought peace to the kingdom by means of military victory, and as an expression of submission to his rule he was worshipped as a god. Anyone who refused to worship him was a traitor, a rebel and disturber of the peace.
The most ancient historical records in existence, some dated prior to the flood, are the Sumerian tablets and other inscribed objects. These predate the oldest extant (still in existence) biblical documents, and give evidence of the pervasive paganism embraced by humankind since earliest history. When we examine what these records say and compare them to the Bible we can recognize the chief god is none other than Lucifer.
On exhibit in the Louvre is a green libation vase, which was excavated from the ancient Mesopotamian city of Lagash. The inscription on it…is a dedication to Ningizzida. Also on the vase is an image of two entwined snakes on a rod. Some have dated the vase as far back as 4000 B.C. The rod is most likely to be Axis Mundi, the world tree, Yggdrasil [more familiar Norse name of], the tree of life. Nin-gizzida, a fertility god, was also known as ‘Nin/Lord of the Tree of Life’. He was often depicted as a serpent with a human head…The Tree of Life had also been linked with the serpent or dragon (winged serpent) for over 1,000 years before Genesis was written…a caduceus of uniting snakes, the incarnation of the god Ningizzida, one of the names: ‘Lord of the Tree of Truth’.
The reptilian image of the Nin /Lord “of the Tree of Life, Tree of Truth” is a bit confusing in that there are two elements portraying the same individual, perhaps reflecting what he once was, and what he became. Ningishzida apparently once was one of the two guardians of the King of the Gods, portrayed in this image as “the anointed cherub that covereth” with the same composite features described in the Bible of ox, man, lion, and eagle. (Eze 1, Eze 10) (A side note, the “four faces” described by Ezekiel are likely an unavoidably inadequate and inaccurate portrayal of a multi-dimensional being, and the Sumerian two-dimensional portrait is taking artistic license with an impossible task.)
“…he made two cherubims of gold…One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the other end on that side…And the cherubims spread out their wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces one to another…” (Ex 37:7-9)
Ningishzida identified himself as having become like the most high God, the main player flanked by the bodyguards. Overthrow of a ruler by a coup led by one of his own high ranking military leaders is a common threat in any government.
“O LORD of hosts…that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth…”(Isa 37:16)
This is transparently none other than Lucifer.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground…For thou hast said in thine heart…I will be like the most High.” (Isa 14:12-14)
The Enuma Elish, the Sumerian creation story, is examined in depth in the post “King’s Dominion” because it provides some valuable detail widely known to the ancients but ignored in our time. To briefly recap, we can discern Lucifer, by any of his many names, through his characteristic pride, lies, and rebellion against the Most High God. He was thrown out of heaven to be lord of the abyss, called apsu / abzu in Sumerian.
Just like Caesar Augustus is better known by his titles than his personal name Octavian, so Lucifer was better known and worshipped by the titles referencing his eminent characteristics.
- Nudimmud = “Begetter of mankind” in Sumerianan, reflecting his rivalry with Creator God, reigning over the underworld, god of wisdom, intelligence, trickery, mischief, magic, exorcism, virility, fertility, and many other desired traits.
- Enki = “Lord of the Earth” in Sumerian, reflecting his rivalry with the human granted this honor. He is in fact granted the title god of this world by his worshippers. He is often portrayed with rivers of fresh water flowing from his shoulders, or more probably, standing between the key rivers Euphrates and Tigris. However it is interpreted, this represents his claimed aspect of life-giver.
- Ea = Akkadian title for the same god.
The Seed of the Serpent
As would be expected, it is in the Sumerian Creation story, the Enuma Elish, as it continues, that we find the account of the origins of the Seed of the Serpent.
And Ea / Enki and Damkina his lover dwelt in splendour.
In the chamber of destinies, the hall of designs,
Bel, [Lord] cleverest of the clever, sage of the gods, was begotten.
And inside Apsu, Marduk was created; [poetic repetition, Bel is a title for Marduk]
Inside pure Apsu, Marduk was born.
Ea / Enki his father created him,
Damkina his mother bore him.
Proud was his form, piercing his stare,
Mature his emergence, he was powerful from the start…
He made him so perfect that his godhead was doubled.
Elevated far above them, he was superior in every way.
His limbs [his father had lost his] were ingeniously made beyond comprehension,
Impossible to understand, too difficult to perceive.
Four were his eyes, four were his ears;
When his lips moved, fire blazed forth.
The four ears were enormous
And likewise the eyes; they perceived everything.
Highest among the gods, his form was outstanding.
His limbs were very long, his height (?) outstanding.
(Anu [Yahweh, true Creator God] cried out)
‘Mari-utu, Mari-utu, Son, majesty, majesty of the gods!’
Clothed in the radiant mantle of ten gods, worn high above his head
Five fearsome rays were clustered above him.
I have searched to find the Sumerian meaning of “Mari-utu” and the best I can come up with is “My son, the new thing.” That totally fits the Serpent’s Natality Strategy. (See post on The Seed of the Woman.) This also ties in to the origin of the name “Marduk”, which was pronounced “Maru-tuk” and appears to derive from amar-Utu one translation of which is “immortal son Utu.”
Utu was worshipped from the very earliest times. The oldest documents naming him date to around 3500 BC, or 500 years after creation, during the first stages of Sumerian writing. This is not to presume that Sumerian was the first writing system, but was developed as a secret code as is common practice to secure the “knowledge is power” base of ruling rival gnostic priests.
Utu was believed to emerge from the doors of Heaven every day at dawn and ride across the sky in his chariot before returning to the “interior of heaven” through a set of doors in the far west every evening, depicted in the image below with two gods holding the doors open for him. Note also how he is depicted with a weapon in his hand and his foot on the earth, a stance of conquering, in blatant defiance of God’s Seed of the Woman.
“And David [one of the promised deliverers in the line of the Seed of the Woman] spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies…God is my strength and power…He…setteth me upon my high places…I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them…yea, they are fallen under my feet…them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.” (II Samuel 21:1-3, 33-40)
“Thou (God) has put all things in subjection under his (Seed of the Woman’s) feet.” (Hebrews 2:8)
Utu’s main symbol, the solar disc, represents a singular symbol of the Savior, a winged sun, the Sun of Righteousness, arising with healing on his wings. He appropriates the attributes that “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” (Joh 1:4) This symbol is found since the most ancient times in many cultural variations all over the world, up to the present, and is worth taking the time to explore. Currently, according to the Lucis Trust,
This symbol indicates some of the significant forces and deeper factors now increasingly operating as the new age advances...available to Sanat Kumara not formerly at his disposal. This is largely so because he has achieved an expansion of solar consciousness, or, as we might put it, “taken an initiation“. Some of these forces are partially available in the council chamber of Shamballa, and from thence in the Hierarchy led by the Christ. Our symbol touches only a few of these new potencies and includes a blend of both the old age [when gods walked the earth] and the new. It is the perfecting of this blend [of gods and humans] which is a supreme task of the Christ at this time.
Just file away for now the note that the image of the sun god below is a giant human.
Alice Bailey (1880-1949), founder of Lucis Trust, was a Christian turned occultist whose life’s work was motivated by an “absolute conviction…that the Plan for humanity requires the cooperation and service of trained and dedicated human beings…in collaboration with those who form the spiritual hierarchy, the inner government of the planet. Getting heeeavyyy man. More detail as we progress.
Looking at the earth as a flat circle as described in the Bible, it is easy to see how the nations could spread out from one location. They carried their original beliefs with them, simply translating the name and tweaking the images and details to adapt to the environmentally determined culture.
Worship of Utu lasted for well over 3,000 years, until the end of post-flood Mesopotamian culture. His worship by other names was preserved to this day by the nations generated at the tower of Babel.
Mari-utu, amar-Utu, Maru-tuk resolves to Marduk at Babylon under Hammurabi / Nimrod. In a move that more than anything else demonstrates that he is Anti-Christ, he took on the power and prerogatives of Enlil, crushing his worship practices. As documented in the post on King’s Dominion, Enlil is Adam in the Sumerian pantheon, with the biblical perspective being Enlil as God’s Melchizedek. In other words, Marduk tried to stamp out God’s people.
Shamash is the name of Utu in the Akkadian language of Sargon’s Eastern Semitic peoples. Utu’s identifying characteristics as the sun god remained the same in all the cultures, typically portrayed with signature rays of light around the head (the lines on the hat in the figure above) and the sun disk.
One of Mesopotamia’s closest neighbors and earliest rivals was Egypt to the west. There the name of the sun god was Ra, cuneiform: 𒊑𒀀 ri-a or 𒊑𒅀ri-ia). By 2500 BC, he had become one of the most important Egyptian gods, believed to rule in all parts of the created world. All forms of life were believed to have been created by Ra.
To the northeast, (colder so more clothes) Istanu is the Hittite Sun god of Heaven who rode across the heavens and was the patron deity of judges, He was the foremost oath god in interstate covenants as well as the god of law and truth, dentified on the royal seals by the winged solar disc.
Moving further north into Europe the Celtic sun god is called Belenus,“The Shining One”, as a descriptive surname given to the Celtic Apollo. His festival is Beltine (“Fire of Bel”), modern Sabbat of Beltane celebrated in earnest by Wiccans on May 1 and apparently ignorantly by most others during May Day festivities.
Moving east to Persia (modern Iran) Mithra Old Persian: 𐎷𐎰𐎼 Miça) is the Zoroastrian angelic Divinity (yazata) of Covenant, Light, and Oath, the divinity of contracts, a judicial figure, an all-seeing protector of Truth, and the guardian of the primordial Waters of outer space.
Moving east by a short sea trip to the Indian subcontinent, we find Surya is an ancient Hindu god of the sun, light, day and wisdom. Further east still by a long and arduous overland trip to Tibet, China and Japan we find a deva, or son of a god, named Marici in Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism, that goes by other names in the multitude of Eastern religions and sects. The origins of Marici are obscure; however, appear to be an amalgamation of Indian and Iranian antecedents spanning 1500 years. There is an interesting Indo-European link with the wild boar which is also part of the Celtic Belenus’ entourage.
Crossing the Bering Straits to the Americas, Huitzilopochtli is the sun god and deity of war and human sacrifice for the Aztecs, and Inti is the name of the same god for the Incas. The most common origins story of Inti says that he is the son of Viracocha, the god of civilization. Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru still honor the sun god Inti on their state insignias.
As should be expected of the individual who can single-handedly outwit all the intelligence services of the world combined, Lucifer’s son “Marduk is one of the most complex gods in ancient Mesopotamia. His origins and original functions are obscure.” One thing we know for certain is that Marduk is always associated with a mushushu, or “snake dragon” identifying the source of his power. Well we know who that is. He was known as the heir of Anu / YHVH, which pegs him as Antichrist, but the son of Enki which we know is Lucifer.
But hold on! The human images attributed to Marduk by anthropologists do not match the description of him in the Enuma Elish. According to this, he is the dragon itself, made in the image and likeness of his father, the Serpent when he had limbs. So the man wearing the Tablets of Destiny is not Marduk, but his human vicar / representative / High Priest, mimicking YHVH’s High Priest wearing the breastplate of judgment.

In the Sumerian account, the seed of the serpent is not a hybrid. He is 100% angel / god / alien. To understand how that can happen, go back to the first description of reproduction in the Bible.
As described in The Seed of the Woman, while we commonly think of God as strictly masculine, he must also contain all femininity. This is the only way Eve could get her feminine attributes. The record unequivocally states that God reproduced himself in his offspring by himself, through asexual reproduction. The son of God Adam was an exact copy of God, both image / appearance and likeness / characteristics. Likewise, since God cloned the woman from bone tissue taken from Adam, the woman was an exact copy of an exact copy. So when “God said, Let us make man[kind] in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion...male and female created he them.” (Gen 1:26-27) that original unblemished likeness was male and female in each individual, i.e. what we would call hermaphrodite.
To drill down further into this concept, we must therefore deduce that, since God is hermaphrodite, all of the “sons” of God produced asexually by God are also hermaphrodites – and therefore also reproduce asexually. Sounds insane? Just hold on and follow the deduction through to the end before you discard it.
It is commonly taught that wives and the pleasures of sexual intercourse were not “given” in the sense of a moral law which the angels broke. If we understand what goes on in sexual reproduction we will correctly understand that it was a law of physics that the angels sidestepped. They downgraded from their natural hyper-dimensional state to the four dimensions of humanity for the specific purpose of sexual intercourse with women. This is unequivocally laid out by Jude.
- “…there are certain men crept in unawares…ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness / debauchery and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
- I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. “Woe unto them! for they have…ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward. (Jude 11) …and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat [as in taking communion, bringing the spirit of the god into their bodies], and bowed down to their gods [pledge to obey them like subjects to a king]. And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor [part of that process being joined in sex to persons already demon-possessed]: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel. And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel. And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.” (Numbers 25:1-5)
- And the angels which kept not their first estate / dominion or sphere of activity in the spirit dimension, but left their own habitation [of the soul] / spirit dimensioned body [the habitation is not the heavens, note how this is defined for us internally by the corresponding use of this Greek word in 2 Corinthians 5:2 defining “spiritual body”], he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. [In this context this logically includes sexual congress, confirmed as the text goes on to say] Even as
- Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
- Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities…
- And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (Jude 4-8, 14-15)
Jude’s verbatim quoting from the Book of Enoch provides evidence that this document was accepted as authoritative in Jesus’ day.
“The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect ⌈⌈and⌉⌉ righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked ⌈⌈and godless⌉⌉ are to be removed…with the righteous He will make peace. And will protect the elect, And mercy shall be upon them. And they shall all belong to God…
And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of ⌈His⌉ holy ones To execute judgement upon all, And to destroy ⌈all⌉ the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works ⌈of their ungodliness⌉ which they have ungodly committed, And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners ⌈have spoken⌉ against Him.” (Enoch 1:9)
“…But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, having not the Spirit [implying they have, instead, “a” spirit guide.]. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” (Jude 17-21)
Jesus himself must have referenced Enoch in his debate with a group of mockers,
“And they send unto him certain to catch him in his words...the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection…asked him, saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed…And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also. In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures [inspired holy writings], neither the power [residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth from inside] of God? For when they shall rise from the dead [with new spiritual bodies], they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.” (Mark 12:13-25)
When Jesus defined the angels as those “which are in heaven”, he was implicitly contrasting them with “the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation”. What scripture reports this? Enoch.
Enoch provides information on the circumstances of the angels who left their hyper-dimensional state, and in the process explains that procreation through sexual relations was given to humanity to counterbalance the loss of population through death with new generations.
Conversely then, diverse male and female sexuality does not exist in immortal beings.
And go say to the Watchers of Heaven...Why have you left the High, Holy and Eternal Heaven, and lain with women, and become unclean with the daughters of men, and taken wives for yourselves, and done as the sons of the earth, and begotten giant sons? And you were spiritual, Holy, living an eternal life, but you became unclean upon the women, and begot children through the blood of flesh, and lusted after the blood of men, and produced flesh and blood, as they do, who die and are destroyed. And for this reason I give men wives; so that they might sow seed in them, and so that children might be born by them, so that deeds might be done on the Earth. But you, formerly, were spiritual, living an eternal, immortal life, for all the generations of the world. For this reason I did not arrange wives for you; because the dwelling of the spiritual ones is in Heaven. (Enoch 15:2-7)
With this scriptural statement of fact, we can apply scientific knowledge to understand that fact. We understand that immortality is the state of being changeless, right? It follows therefore logically that immortals are incapable of meiosis, the process that eliminates half of the chromosomes in a reproductive cell to make a gamete (sperm or egg).
Instead, immortals reproduce through asexual – single parent – reproduction via mitosis where the exact full set (referred to as 2N) of chromosomes is present in the reproductive cell. This, obviously, produces identical offspring. Identical offspring is the only possible product of asexual reproduction. Except for Creator God, of course.
We have come to understand asexual reproduction through the process of cloning. Instead of using gametes with only half the number of chromosomes, cloning uses stem cells with the full number of chromosomes.
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can turn into specific cells, as the body needs them. The most prevalent source of stem cells is a fetus in early stages of development. These cells have the same chromosomes as every other cell in the resulting complete body, but in some way their DNA is programmed to cause some of the cells to develop into skin, others into bone, others into blood, etc. until every one of the trillions of different cells making up all of the complex tissues and organs is in its right place and functioning correctly. (I just have to mention in passing…evolution? Seriously?)
Stem cells do not get used up during the formation of the complete infant body. Stem cells remain in certain tissues which need to be regenerated rapidly during routine maintenance or acute repair, such as bone marrow where millions of blood cells are formed daily, also in the brain, skin, and the intestines and the liver which are assaulted constantly by harmful substances we consume, intentionally or not.
The, originally immortal, woman was cloned from stem cells located in the bone of, at that time immortal, son of God Adam. We can therefore logically deduce that the other immortal sons of God, commonly known as angels, also have stem cells which can likewise be used to clone themselves.
With this is mind, let’s review the Enuma Elish’s account again.
- Marduk was created…Marduk was born.
- Ea / Enki his father created him,
- Damkina his mother bore him.
This wording is consistent with surrogate motherhood through cloning. As explained more fully in the post Days of Noah, a maternal uterus is needed for the growth and transformation of the cloned cell into a fully developed individual of that species.
If we pay close attention to the very first mention of the seed of the serpent in the Bible we will realize that the analysis that Satan must have cloned himself is confirmed. Note that “thee” and “thy seed” are used interchangeably. The serpent and its seed are treated as being the same.
- “And I will put enmity between thee/Serpent and the woman,
- and between thy seed and her seed;
- it [her seed] shall bruise thy/Serpent’s head,
- and thou/Serpent shalt bruise his heel.” (Gen 3:15)
And yet there are two separate individuals according to their descriptions and destinies. The fulfillment of the Genesis 3:15 prophecy described in Revelation makes this clear.
- And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…with child…
- And there appeared another wonder in heaven…a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads...and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
- And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne…
- And I…saw a beast rise up out of the sea…having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast [unidentifiable creature]: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Rev 12:1-13:8)
We can resolve this paradox by understanding that the seed of the serpent is a clone of the serpent, both genetically identically the serpent yet a separate individual. Don’t be confused by the differences in description, such as feet on the beast. The serpent lost his traumatically, so genetically he can still pass them through a stem cell seed to his son.
Still skeptical? Cloning is a common reproductive process in nature. In particular, “There are about 50 species of lizard and 1 species of snake that reproduce solely through parthenogenesis [asexual reproduction] (obligate parthenogenesis). It is unknown how many sexually reproducing species are also capable of parthenogenesis in the absence of males (facultative parthenogenesis), but recent research has revealed that this ability is widespread among squamates [lizards and snakes].”
This ability, more or less, was a theme in the megahit movie Jurassic Park.
I think we get tripped up by assuming that Satan immediately mimics the Christ who is a God-human hybrid by immediately producing his own god-human anti-christ. In fact, when God announced that the “seed of the woman” would battle the “seed of the serpent” sexual reproduction had never yet occurred. The splitting of masculine and feminine characteristics into separate male and female is recorded as happening only to the humans after they ate the fruit and became mortal. Single parenting was the only form of reproduction known when God pronounced the curse on the Serpent, occurring through God as he asexually reproduced himself in the humans and angels, and one aspect of his likeness passed on to his offspring.
According to Enoch, asexual reproduction by angels in heaven occurred.
These are the chiefs of their angels, and the names of the leaders of their hundreds, and the leaders of their fifties, and the leaders of their tens. The name of the first is Yekun: he it was who seduced all the sons of the holy angels; and causing them to descend on earth, led astray the offspring of men. (Enoch 68:3-4)
Afterwards my spirit was concealed, ascending into the heavens. I beheld the sons of the holy angels treading on flaming fire, whose garments and robes were white, and whose countenances were transparent as crystal. (Enoch 70:1)
The Serpent didn’t have a clue about the nature of God’s hybrid Christ. It was still a mystery.
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh….” (I Tim 3:16)
Unlike mortal, changeable humans, the immortal, unchangeable angelic sons of God remain hermaphrodites like their procreator, and any reproduction by immortal sons of God without a human woman (more on this later) occurs, as with him, asexually and reproduces only copies of the original parent.
This is openly documented by the Greeks in their history of the gods. Notice how many gods produced offspring who were 100% god? Zeus, who has been previous established to be Lucifer, is reported to have fathered over 20 full gods and goddesses.
While most gods are reported to have been produced through sexual relations between gods and goddesses, these accounts vary and in light of what we know about, or will shortly learn, is one of the aspects of myth that falls into the category of “men making gods in their own image.” Truth is stranger than fiction, including the versions that report single parent gods.
- Aphrodite is said to have arisen from Uranus’ severed genitals. Since we have tracked Uranus back to Anu to YHVH we know that the severed genitals part is just trash talk by one of his rebel offspring, but the part about having arisen from single parent God is consistent with other sources.
- “But Zeus himself gave birth from his own head to bright-eyed Tritogeneia [Athena], the awful, the strife-stirring, the host-leader, the unwearying, the queen, who delights in tumults and wars and battles.”
- “But Hera without union with Zeus — for she was very angry and quarrelled with her mate — bare famous Hephaestus, who is skilled in crafts more than all the sons of Heaven.” –Hesiod Theogony 924ff
- Zeus carried the fetus of Dionysus in his thigh until he was born.
Satan is the ultimate wicked godfather. Since the fallen angels who engaged in sexual intercourse with human women were imprisoned for this transgression, cloning is how Satan avoids going to prison. He sends his sons to do the dirty work for him. But since his seed are clones of himself, he can distance himself from the act while still taking credit for accomplishing the evil deed. This is another layer of meaning in “thou” shalt bruise the heel of the seed of the woman who is battling the seed of the serpent.
Modern Westerners are most familiar with the European manifestation of Utu in the Greek and Roman cultures. Apollo is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities, i.e. oldest generation of gods begotten and ruled by Zeus. The national divinity of the Greeks, the only Greek god to be adopted without a name change by the Romans, Apollo is the son of Zeus. He was seen as the most beautiful god, the ideal beardless, athletically fit youth. He was the god of the sun and light, truth and prophecy, music, healing, and more.
Interestingly, Apollo has a twin sister, Artemis (Greek) or [Great is] Diana [of the Ephesians! Acts 19:28] (Roman). Like Apollo, she is one of the oldest and mysterious of the Olympian gods, with conflicting stories about her origins and exploits. As the goddess of the hunt, she was quite the tomboy. She was known for celibacy, even killing a man who saw her naked while bathing. Makes you wonder if that wasn’t hermaphrodite Apollo expressing his feminine side.
I have set eyes on the wall of lofty Babylon on which is a road for chariots, and the statue of Zeus by the Alpheus, and the hanging gardens, and the colossus of the Sun, and the huge labour of the high pyramids, and the vast tomb of Mausolus; but when I saw the house of Artemis that mounted to the clouds, those other marvels lost their brilliancy, and I said, “Lo, apart from Olympus, the Sun never looked on aught so grand”.
When Christianity exploded on the scene and spread like wildfire through the Roman Empire, was it able to defeat Apollo / Apollyon and confine him to the underworld? It seems so.
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit…And there came out…locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power..And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.…(Rev 9)
But then the Adversary countered by importing Mithraism, the worship of the Persian version of Utu / Apollo, where it flourished in the 2nd through 4th centuries AD as the chief rival to Christianity. Mithraism was a secretive mystery religion so much is unknown, but it involved a communal meal and initiation through seven stages of an astrologically-themed hierarchy. Mithraism’s sudden emergence in the Roman world at that particular time has not been explained by historians, but I’m impressed with what the Encyclopaedia Britannica has to say.
The most plausible hypothesis seems to be that Roman Mithraism was practically a new creation, wrought by a religious genius.1
Sol Invictus, “Unconquered Sun”, became the updated version of Utu / Apollo for the later Roman Empire. On 25 December AD 274, the Roman emperor Aurelian made it an official cult and the god was favored by emperors after Aurelian until Constantine I co-oped Christianity into a paganized ecumenical religion incorporating the various aspects of the ancient sun god.
The passage in Isaiah damning Lucider’s seed then explicitly identifies them as the Babylonian and Assyrian rulers. As Lucifer had proclaimed “I will…!” now the Lord of hosts responds with his own “No, I will!” The future doom of Lucifer’s seed is prophesied by Isaiah, but in the meantime, they are “possessing”, i.e. owning, controlling, ruling the land and “filling the face of the world” with centers of government, commerce and religion in every civilization world-wide.
- “I will…cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew…
- I will also make it a possession for the bittern [heron, i.e. uninhabited by humans]…
- I will sweep it with the besom of destruction…
- I will break the Assyrian in my land…
In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden. (Isa 14:22-28)
We know that at Babylon Marduk was the Son of Satan, the god who overthrew Enlil’s / Adam’s worship system. We will discover that Ham’s grandson Nimrod was Marduk’s hybrid via genes carried through the flood. Who is the nephew, the Assyrian?
Assur / Asshur / Ashur (as in Ashur-banipal) a son of Shem and nephew of Ham, was confederate with Nimrod during the building of the tower at Babylon. He is listed in Genesis 10 as one of the original fathers of nations dispersed from the tower of Babel. Recalling the exceptional lifespans and vigor of the first post-flood generation, this person is likely the very individual who usurped the worship system of Enlil / Adam and was himself worshipped as a god by his descendants the Assyrians. He replaced Marduk as chief god in the Assyrian conquest of Babylon. Assur’s symbol of a winged sun identifies him with Lucifer.
“…the beginning of his [Nimrod’s] kingdom was Babel…in the land of Shinar. Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, and Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city…The children of Shem…Asshur…” (Gen 10:10-12, 22)
This made the Adversary’s plan to destroy humanity so much harder. He needed to make his own changes in the world. He needed the natality strategy, a new thing, not just a clone of himself.
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.” (Ecc 1:9-10)
Have we overlooked God’s most significant likeness, which he passed to humans only and which, when Lucifer encountered, he craved? It is his unique power of natality, creation of a new thing.
“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying…the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity; The LORD bless thee, O habitation of justice, and mountain of holiness.” (Jer 31)
“Therefore if any man be in Christ / Chosen One , he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (II Cor 5:17)
Natality – the power to create a new thing – is a key aspect of the most High and his human sons that Lucifer aims to seize for himself. This is essential for understanding human history and its culmination in the end times, and with what is going on with reported alien abductions and genetic manipulation and hybridization. More on these issues in later posts. For now focus on the historical progression from:
- gods owning and controlling human slaves.
- gods cloning exact copies of themselves as other gods to
- gods hybridizing demigods
From Clones to Hybrids
While it would seem that a “half” god is less powerful than a “full” god, the hybrid demigods’ humanity provides tremendous benefits. One of the most valuable is the ability to interact freely with humanity. One god that has that attribute is Hermes / Mercury, the messenger of the gods. From Hermes we get hermetic magic with its operating principle of “As above, so below.” Hermes is able to freely move through what are, to most others, impassable boundaries between heaven and earth.
How? Follow the signs.
Hermes’ symbol, the caduceus, similar to Ningeshzida’s sign, is a significant clue in our search for the seed of the serpent.The caduceus represents Herme’s notable characteristics of wisdom, eloquence, trickery, negotiation, and alchemy / transformation. Certainly sounds like Satan, who is himself “transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed…” (II Cor 11:14-15)
Hermes is Zeus’ son and Apollo’s brother, therefore another clone Seed of the Serpent. Most significantly, notice the similarity between the image of the entwined serpents and DNA.
We can deduce that Hermes was one of the fallen angels who left his assigned hyper-dimensional state to transform into a four-dimensional state compatible with human interaction. The objective was natality strategy – the creation of a new thing only made possible through blending DNA in sexual reproduction. More on the scientific basis for this in the post on The Days of Noah.
“Then the Lord said to me: Enoch, scribe of righteousness, go tell the Watchers of heaven, who have deserted the lofty sky, and their holy everlasting station / estate, who…have done as the sons of men do, by taking to themselves wives, and who have been greatly corrupted [degenerated from 10 to 4 dimensions] on the earth;” (Enoch 12:5-6)
Skeptical? This is exactly what God did in Christ Jesus in the greatest natality coup in all of human history.
“Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God…took upon him…the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself…unto death” (Phili 2:5-8)
Significantly, in the early 20th century the caduceus was adopted as the sign for the modern disciplines of medicine and pharmacy. While there is an appearance of pure materialistic science in these fields, the consolidation of ancient beliefs with modern science and the spirit and physical paradigms is indelibly expressed in the iconic Egyptian Building at Virginia Commonwealth University. Note Utu’s ancient winged sun sigil over the doorway. It is not a coincidence that at this same time spiritualism was reborn in its modern guise, giving rise to the many organizations devoted to derivatives of the occult whose founders frankly stated that they were receiving teachings from the spirit world. These interests logically corresponded to the exponential growth of interest in ancient cultures following the expansion of archeology at this same time.
The Rod of Asclepius, symbol for the Greek god of healing and medicine, is similar to Hermes’ caduceus but only has one snake, perhaps representing only half of the Serpent’s genetically contributed power. Asclepius was a hybrid angel-human, a half or demi-god, who received his healing powers from his father Apollo, twin to Hermes, both clones of Lucifer.
Interestingly, the Rod of hybrid Asclepius is the symbol for the World Health Organization.
The passage in Isaiah reporting Lucifer’s ambition to be like the Most High God also reports the future destruction of Lucifer’s children. After the flood.
“Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit…thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned. Prepare slaughter for his children [unlike 100% gods which can not die] for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.” (Isa 14:15-21)
Unlike the clone Marduk, a hybrid Seed of the Serpent is a being with both spirit and human traits so can be slaughtered. He appears to be identical to, but is the exact opposite of, the Christ. He is the anti-thesis, the Anti-christ. Like YHVH’s Hero Savior, he got his spiritual genes from a spiritual father. His father Lucifer, the “light bearer, son of the morning”, was made so closely in God’s likeness that he can fool most people into thinking that his son is the real deal, the savior of the world.
Genes provide one vestigial evidence of the damage that occurred when Adam degenerated from immortal to mortal. We know that the Y chromosome is severely stunted when compared to the other chromosomes, appearing to have lost about 90% of the original genes. If the Y chromosome is contributed by the immortal father in its fullness, then the offspring can justly be expected to be a true “superman, German Ubermensch, in [Nazi] philosophy, the superior man…” Undoubtedly this image of a majestic and admirable Antichrist is accurate.
When we find ourselves in a Hall of Mirrors how can we tell which apparently fully human leader truly saves and who deceives into destruction?
It’s all about the sin.
- The true Messiah saves us from our own sinful nature through redemption by dying in our place.
- The Antichrist promises to save us from other people’s sins through war by slaughtering “the enemy.”
Whoever accommodates sin while blaming the consequences of our sin on someone else and promises to fix our sin problems by eliminating someone else is an antichrist.
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places…Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” (Matt 24:6-9)
What is so detestable about the name of Jesus / YHVH’s Savior? Being forced to take responsibility for one’s own sins rather than being supported in blaming someone else. Contrast the soothing explanation on this psychiatrist’s pillow.
“…thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from THEIR sins.” (Mat 1:21)
“And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in YOUR sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in YOUR sins.” (Joh 8:23-24
According to the Enuma Elish, in addition to human- god hybrids we find the gods producing human-animal hybrids. Why? For purposes of destruction.
“Dead things [things that have no connection to the source of life but are not necessarily inactivated] are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof. Hell is naked [exposed, no secrets] before him, and destruction hath no covering…He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them. He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it. He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end (Revelation 21:1, 25). The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof. He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.” (Job 26:5-12)
“The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” (Genesis 6:11-13)
Set up a [battle cry] and avenge them!
Con[quer the enemy] and reduce them to nought!’…
They were fierce, scheming restlessly night and day.
They were working up to war, growling and raging.
They convened a council and created conflict.
Mother Hubur [Tiamat], who fashions all things,
Contributed an unfaceable weapon: she bore giant snakes,
Sharp of tooth and unsparing of fang(?).
She filled their bodies with venom instead of blood.
She cloaked ferocious dragons with fearsome rays [sounds like the dinosaurs to me]
And made them bear mantles of radiance, made them godlike,
(chanting this imprecation)
‘Whoever looks upon them shall collapse in utter terror!
Their bodies shall rear up continually and never turn away!’
She stationed a horned serpent,
a rabid dog,
and a scorpion-man,
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit…And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power…their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails…And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.” (Rev 9:1-11)
and a bull-man
Bearing merciless weapons, fearless in battle. Her orders were so powerful, they could not be disobeyed. In addition she created eleven more likewise.
Over the gods her offspring who had convened a council for her
She promoted Qingu and made him greatest among them,
Conferred upon him leadership of the army, command of the assembly..Your commands shall always prevail over all the Anukki!’
This part of the creation story matches both the explicit statement in Genesis 6 and the implicit account of Day – Night conflict in Genesis 1. Tiamat – the sea of outer space, or heaven – certainly doesn’t reflect the actions of God’s righteous angels. She undoubtedly represents one of a number of rival political factions among the fallen angels wreaking death and destruction on society as they fight each other in perpetual power struggles even after the current ruler is deposed.
This is the standard setup for the rise of one strong man promising peace and prosperity by ending war, like Caesar Augustus, Hitler, Lenin, or Mao. We should be able to recognize this in America’s escalating vicious political rivalry, since the 20th century was primarily a series of revolutionary wars in the Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman, British, German, Russian and Chinese empires. All of them were grounded in the ideology of the template modern revolution, the atheist, humanistic French Revolution, of which it was astutely predicted:
“From this place, and from this day forth begins a new era in the history of the world.“ (Goethe to the defeated German soldiers after the Battle of Valmy.)
More on the French Revolution’s links to the American Revolution when we get to that stage of history. For now, focus on how this second part of the Enuma Elish reflects the biblical passage reporting war between rival factions of angels where the dragon, Satan, initially wins some battles before he loses the war.
Regardless of how it is commonly taught, by maintaining internal consistency in the definition of the word cast we should understand that the report of angels being cast to earth indicates a conquest rather than a following. It is important that we recognize that wars do not consist of simple “good guys” versus the “bad guys”. They can all be bad guys and the righteous don’t side with “the lesser of two evils” or the conservatives end up voting Antichrist into office.
“...And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon…And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth…And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels…And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan.” (Rev 12:3-8)
What matters is that, in the context of war, certain factions of gods agree to submit completely to the only (get it? single parent) begotten Marduk who promises in return to defend them against Tiamat / Begetter / Outer Space. This is exactly the same context in which we find the Cloned Seed of the Serpent elevated to absolute power by humanity during the trumpet calls to war between heaven and earth in Revelation at the end of history. We can expect to find him leading a host of human believers plus hybrids.
“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open [judgment, equivalent to the Tablet of Destinies]: and he set his right foot upon the sea [above the firmament, Tiamat], and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth…And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound [his trumpet], the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets…And I stood upon the sand of the sea [of outer space above the firmament], and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority…and all the world…worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?…And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Rev 10:1-7, 13:1-7)
Ea called Marduk into his secluded presence. Giving counsel, he told him what was in his heart.
Marduk came forth, the wisest of the gods…He opened his mouth, saying to me [Ea / Lucifer / the Dragon] “If indeed as your avenger, I am to vanquish Tiamat and save your lives, Convene the assembly and proclaim supreme my destiny!...Let my word, instead of yours, determine the fates. What I may bring into being shall be unchangeable; Neither dismissed nor replaced shall be the command of my lips!” Now hasten hither and promptly fix for him your decrees, That he may go forth to face your mighty foe!
[Then claiming the prerogatives of the Son of “God…Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things…Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they” .(Heb 1:1-4)]
They erected for him an ample throne. Facing his fathers, he sat down, presiding. [Remember, “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. I will sit…”] “You, Marduk are the most honored of the great gods, Your decree is unrivaled, your word is Anu / Yahweh [i.e. equal in power and guaranteed to come to pass as that of Anu]. From this day unchangeable shall be your pronouncement. To raise or bring low—these shall be in your hand. Your utterance shall be true, your command shall be unimpeachable. No one among the gods shall transgress your bounds!… [“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies;” (Rev 13:4-5)]
O Marduk, you are indeed our avenger. We have granted you kingship over the entire universe. Your word shall be supreme when you sit in assembly. Your weapons shall not fail; they shall smash your foes! O lord, spare the life of him who trusts you, But pour out the life of the god who seized evil.” [“And he had power to…cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Rev 13:15)]
…Joyfully they paid homage: “Marduk is king!” They conferred on him scepter, throne, and vestment; They gave him unequaled weapons that ward off the foes: “Go and terminate the life of Tiamat. May the winds bear her blood to places undisclosed.” Marduk’s destiny thus fixed, the gods, his fathers / elders, Caused him to go the way of success and achievement…Then the lord raised up the flood-storm, his mighty weapon…to enrage Tiamat he spoke the following words: “Why have you risen, why have you arrogantly exalted? You have charged your own heart to stir up conflict…Against the gods, my fathers, you have confirmed your wickedness. Though you have drawn up your forces, readied your weapons, Stand alone, that I and you may meet in single combat!” When Tiamat head this, She was like one possessed; she took leave of her senses. In fury Tiamat cried out aloud… Tiamat and Marduk, wisest of gods then joined battle, They strove in single combat, locked in conflict…Having subdued her, he blotted out her life. He threw down her carcass and stood upon it. After he had slain Tiamat, the leader, Her band was shattered, her troupe broken up; And her helpers, the gods who marched at her side, Trembled with terror and turned their backs, In order to save and preserve their lives. Encirded tightly, they could not escape. He made them captives and he smashed their weapons. They found themselves ensnared in the net; Thrown into cells, they were filled with wailing; Bearing his wrath, they were held imprisoned. And the eleven creatures which she had charged with awe, The band of demons that marched before her, He cast into fetters..And Qingu, who had been made chief among them, He bound and accounted him to Uggae. He took from him the Tables of Fate…Sealed them with a seal and fastened them on his own breast. When he had vanquished and subdued his adversaries…Nudimmud’s /Enki’s / Satan’s desire had achieved.
History is written to serve the current politicians. For example, after their defeat in WWI, German citizens developed DlochstoBlegenden, or stab-in-the-back conspiracy theories that their war efforts had been ruined by internal subversive forces. These claims contributed strongly to the mass appeal and rise of Nazi political power.
According to the Russian government:
The most important thing to keep in mind about the Second World War is that it was a fundamentally Soviet-German war…Hitler’s war machines were smashed up by the Red Army, fundamentally, it was the Soviet Union that won the Second World War…I’ve argued that it’s possible that the Soviet Union could have won the war on its own without the West… Of course Western politicians have an invested interest in downplaying the Soviet role and, of course, Russia’s role in the war, particularly in this present conjuncture where Russian-Western relations are in such a bad state. But everyone shouldn’t confuse the allusions of politicians and the inadequacies of the Western media with Western public opinion…The public opinion to a certain extent is too immune to this kind of anti-Russian, anti-Soviet propaganda, distortion of history that you find emanating from various quarters.
Likewise, we can recognize the Serpent’s propaganda and distortion of history in the Sumerian account of this battle. Marduk, the Seed of the Serpent, undoubtedly has his victorious battles against other power-hungry rebels, but it is by the Word of God that the wicked angels are imprisoned. Read closely Job’s parallel sparse account of the Sumerian extravaganza.
“Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?…or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?…And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors…Hast thou commanded…and caused the dayspring to know his place; That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment. And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.” (Job 38:4-15)
The strategy of God clearing the battlefield by letting the wicked rebels fight it out amongst themselves has worked more than once.
“And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude. And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along. And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host. And it was so, when Gideon heard the telling of the dream, and the interpretation thereof, that he worshipped, and returned into the host of Israel, and said, Arise; for the LORD hath delivered into your hand the host of Midian. And he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man’s hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers. And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise: and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be that, as I do, so shall ye do. When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that are with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon. So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands. And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon. And they stood every man in his place round about the camp; and all the host ran, and cried, and fled. And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man’s sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, and to the border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath.” (Judges 7:12-22)
“Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs. The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her rivers running round about his plants, and sent her little rivers unto all the trees of the field. Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth. All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations. Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters. The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty. I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him. Therefore thus saith the LORD God; Because thou hast lifted up thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height; I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven him out for his wickedness to the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves for their height… (Eze 31:3-14)
”I Nebuchadnezzar…saw a dream which made me afraid…I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great. The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth: The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it. I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven; He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches…to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men….It is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown, and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth. (Dan 4:4-17,22)
Lucifer’s dystopian universe is a dark mirror image of God’s theocratic political dynasty which is conceptualized as a tree, with his heir budding out of the stump of the family tree many years after it was cut down.
“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.” (Isa 11:1)
It seems to me that this study reveals that in the end days we humans will be faced with three terrors.
- Satan’s cloned reptilian offspring – the beast who comes from the sea of outer space, commonly referred to as an alien.
- Satan’s human-hybrid overlord king, who through cloning or other genetic manipulation is both one with historical rulers such as Nimrod, Caesar and Hitler (is the eighth and is of the seven) and a new, improved, crueler ruler. Carriers of angelic genes have preserved their heritage and produced a line of sons of perdition through meticulous inbreeding within a political dynasty paralleling that of the Son of God, beginning with Nimrod, proceeding through his Babylonian heirs, the Assyrian dynasty, the Neo-Babylonian, the Persian, the Greek, and the last, the Roman, which continues today.
- Devoted human followers who, like the Nazi SS and Communist neighborhood patrol, ally with the new world order in the mistaken belief this will be to their advantage.
The reality of Satan as a hyper-dimensional being that has been involved with humanity from the beginning of history is supported by the fact that he continues to be worshipped in our own culture in new age religions as “…Serpent Seraph, Winged Serpent, Dragon, Nachash…alter-Form of HERU’s Second Person. He is the Creator and Maintainer of all worlds and beings. He is the Lord of all time [therefore death, you must realize], WHO ALONE REMAINS (SESHA) AFTER THE ANNIHILATION OF ANY MATERIAL UNIVERSE!”
Not according to the Bible. You do realize this means war.
“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea [of outer space], and his left foot on the earth, [classic pose of victory – “What is man…Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet…” (Psa 8:4-6)] And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices [in challenge]. And…I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. [Because they are not happening! Satan thunders “I will!” and God shuts him up and overrules him with “No, I WILL!”] And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer [ergo, according to quantum physics, no more four dimensional universe and according to the Bible no more death]: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” (Rev 10:1-7)
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. (I Cor 15:54)
We shouldn’t freak out about the end times, because since the day God gave dominion to mankind we have been under assault in every dimension of body, soul and spirit. The spiritual dimension is the least understood. Many people simply avoid the topic. However, we should know our enemy.
“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (II Cor 2:11)
Becoming a follower of Jesus Christ does not guarantee us a privileged life of having all our prayer requests granted. We will be attacked by the enemy, but we have the advantage over our enemy when we expect and prepare for attacks by becoming spiritually strong.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” (Eph 6:10-18)
“…follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness [which is how we] Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” (I Tim 6:11-12)
Even when it seems we’ve failed, we can be confident of backup support, and ultimate victory, in the face of the most dreadful circumstances.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren…What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?…Who shall separate us from the love of The Consecrated One/Messiah/Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Yahweh’s Consecrated Savior / Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Ro 8:28-39)
A son who rebels against his father is not going to be a good father to his own son. As they say, what goes around, comes around. Or as Yeshua said:
“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand?” (Lu 11:17-18)
And we know the end of the book. Satan’s kingdom does not stand, because Satan is his own worst enemy. He is a terrible father. In mythology, as in scripture, the father voluntarily hands the throne and full power over to the son, who is called the Word. In reality, Marduk’s elevation to power over his power-hungry and attention-seeking father would have been resented. I expect it was driven by the same caution used by drug czars, mafia dons and corrupt politicians. Plausible deniability. Never do the dirty work yourself, surround yourself with loyal underlings who will go to prison rather than reveal who called the shots.
Contrast this with the true God who did in fact turn over control of the universe to the greatly inferior humans. It seems to me that the biggest difference in their attitudes is that God honored frail, helpless human womanhood, the original rebellious, sinning human, by making a woman his greatest ally in the battle for control of the universe. This proof of God’s absolute forgiveness AND TRUST IN US should take your breath away.
God is all about partnering and sharing. While Satan set right to work producing his powerful hyperdimensional clone, God waited for thousands of years before the Seed of the Woman was born. In the meantime, he relied on temporarily spirit-filled humans to hold onto the Kingdom, get the word out, keep hope alive, be living testimonies of God’s faithfulness to his promises! And he is relying on permanently spirit-filled humans now!
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Mat 28:18-20)
He never leaves us nor forsakes us as he gives us the opportunities to become heroes.
“the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead…There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” (Josh 1:1-5)
“he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” (Heb 13:5-6)
However, Ahaz made the classic error of trusting a lying psychopath for protection.
“Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. (Isa 28:14-18)
Even today human rulers openly claim descent from a god. Many people take this very seriously. Interesting that Prince Charles of England claims descent from Vlad the Impaler, ruler of Transylvania in what is now called Rom-ania, reflecting its history as a Roman province. Vlad the Impaler was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, derived from Vlad’s family name of Dracul, which means “dragon”. In other words, Vlad the son of the dragon. I can’t make this up.
But surely Prince Charles is just joking around?
As promised in chapter 14 of Isaiah referenced above, God did destroy the Assyrian Empire. As portrayed in the Star Wars series, that didn’t stop the war.
“Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina / [from Philistine], because the rod of him that smote thee [the Assyrian] is broken: for out of the serpent’s / nachash’s root shall come forth a cockatrice / venomous adder [the Babylonian] and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent / seraph [the Persian]…and he shall slay thy remnant…” (Isa 14:29-30)
Here we have it spelled out. The root of the family tree that produces the Assyrian, Babylonian and Persian rulers is none other than the notorious serpent / nachash, whose offspring change nationalities but continue his theocratic dynasty. It is common knowledge that Alexander the Great, the founder of the Greek Empire that overthrew the Persian, claimed to be the son of Zeus, king of all gods, who had visited and impregnated his mother in the form of a snake. The transformation of the Roman republic into a de facto monarchy necessarily included the transformation of the first emperor, Augustus Caesar, from a mere mortal to, first a son of god, then a living god. Caesar’s alter ego was, who else? Apollo, son of Zeus.
In the following passage predicting the demise of the Assyrian Antichrist, notice the family resemblance with his successor, Nebuchadnezzar the Babylonian. Most of all, notice how Lucifer imitates God’s source of life for humanity in his unceasing rivalry.
“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” (Rev 22:1-2)
Psychiatric providers are able to obtain truth from patients who either don’t know the truth because they are psychotic, or are hiding the truth because they are psychopaths, by the lies that are either unwittingly or deliberately told. When compared with known truth, the lies tell a lot about the one who is untruthful, such as what is feared by someone who is paranoid, or what is desired by one who is grandiose. We can track the father of lies, Satan, and his grandiose plot to rule over gods and men throughout history in his mystery religions and political cabals by comparing his lies with the true history of the world, freely accessible to all who will receive it.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Seed of the Serpent, Antichrist]; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (II Thess 2:3-12)
