Key concept: How immortals reproduce.
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 seed 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 presented as one of the created beasts of the field. Apparently this thinking, 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.
More importantly, the nachash serpent is also presented as having seed, i.e. reproductive cells with which he fathers a supernatural being which engages in a closely matched fight against the seed of the woman, which we know to be Yeshua the Messiah. This gives us reason to think that the seed of the nachash dragon-serpent is not just an animal. Sure enough, scripture links the various forms taken by the Messiah’s primary adversary. 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 nachash during creation.
“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.…[Nevertheless] He [God] stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds…He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end…He 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 26:5-14)
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 foreigner, alien, outcast, exile, outlaw, 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.
After heaven and earth had been separated,
- 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, the adversary of Adam, Satan], 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 [the sea of 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 he warrants 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)
Other references indisputably identify this same being called by many names – serpent / nachash, dragon, Satan and the Devil. Following the Dragon’s path through scripture, there is no question that he is more than an animal serpent / nachash. He is a 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)
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…” (Rev 12:7-12; 19:11-20; 20:10)
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)
Once again we see “on earth as it is in heaven” – parallels between earthly and heavenly beings. 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. Therefore it is possible that the looks of cherubim or seraphim described in the Bible are not intrinsic to the individual beings. This would explain the discrepancies between internal biblical descriptions themselves as well as between biblical and other ancient sources’ depictions of these 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.
Tracking the Father of Lies Through His Tall Tales
As a psychiatric nurse practitioner working in an acute care setting, I am challenged to uncover the truth from people who either don’t know, or won’t tell, the truth. How can I do that? Compare what is being said to collateral information, such as other records, drug tests, and most of all, my own intact sense of reality. These same skills can be applied to the Adversary’s grandiose and distorted accounts of himself.
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 / 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, ‘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 extent (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 Babylonian, reigning over the underworld, god of wisdom, intelligence, trickery, mischief, magic, exorcism, virility, fertility, and many other things.
- 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 representing his claimed aspect of life-giver.
- Ea = Akkadian name for the same god.
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 the same as Marduk]
Inside pure Apsu, Marduk was born.
Ea/Enki his father created him,
Damkina his mother bore him [wording is consistent with surrogate motherhood.]
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 cried out)
‘Mariutu, Mariutu, 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 of (the sun god) Utu.”
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 anthropomorphic images attributed to Marduk by anthropologists do not match the description of him given in the Enuma Elish describing the dragon itself, made in the image and likeness of his father, the Serpent with limbs. So the man wearing the Tablets of Destiny is not Marduk, but his human representative / vicar / High Priest, mimicking YHVH’s High Priest wearing the breastplate of judgment.
Glazed brick relief from the city of Babylon of a mushushu dragon dating to the Neo-Babylonian period.
In this ancient 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 post Seed of the Woman, God reproduced himself in his offspring by himself, i.e. through asexual reproduction, so Adam was an exact copy of God, likeness and image. Likewise, since God cloned the woman from bone tissue taken from Adam, the woman was an exact copy of an exact copy. 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.
To drill down deeper into this concept, when “God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Gen 1:27) that original unblemished image was male and female in each individual, i.e. what we would call hermaphrodite. 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.
The deduction that God and therefore all his immortal offspring human and angelic are hermaphrodite is further supported by recognizing that, 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“. The Book of Enoch, which was accepted as authoritative in Jesus’ day, elaborates on the circumstances of these angels who left their hyperdimensional state and in the process explains that procreation through sexual relations was given to humanity to counterbalance the changes of deterioration and death with new life. 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)
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.
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.
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 body. Stem cells remain in certain tissues which need to be regenerated rapidly during routine maintenance or acute repair, such as bone marrow where blood cells are formed, 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.
More explanation as we proceed. For now focus on the report that Marduk was created. Damkina is the [surrogate] mother who “bore” him. As explained more fulling in the post Days of Noah, a mortal uterus is needed for the growth and transformation of the cloned cell into a fully developed individual.
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 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 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 identically the serpent yet a separate individual.
Still skeptical? “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 of the characteristics passed on to his sons.
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.
Back to the original story, the Enuma Elish, where we find the gods producing more reptilians then, interestingly, human-animal hybrids, as weapons of war. Notice how the gods / fallen angels / aliens model themselves after humans once God segregated male and female functions between the male and female, and delegated childbearing to the female.
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!’
Then she gave him the Tablet of Destinies and made him clasp it to his breast.
‘Your utterance shall never be altered! Your word shall be law!’
This part of the creation story certainly matches the Genesis account of Day – Night conflict. Tiamat – 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 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 we 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 Seed of the Serpent elevated to absolute power during the trumpet calls to war between heaven and earth in Revelation.
“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 [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, 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. [Ea works through his son to accomplish what he himself can’t do. 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.]
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!
They erected for him an ample throne [claiming the prerogatives 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)]
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. 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!… [Compare this to “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.” [Compare to “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, Caused him to go the way of success and achievement…Then the lord raised up the flood-storm, his mighty weapon…to enraged 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 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. God “caused the dayspring to know his place” how? By having it “take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it.” It sounds to me that God cleared that battlefield by letting the wicked rebels fight it out amongst themselves.
“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)
That strategy has worked more than once.
“it came to pass, when Ahab was dead, that the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel. And [wicked] king Jehoram…sent to [good] Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, saying…wilt thou go with me against Moab to battle? And he said, I will go up: And he said, Which way shall we go up? And he answered, The way through the wilderness of Edom. So the king of Israel went, and the king of Judah, and the king of Edom: and they fetched a compass of seven days’ journey: and there was no water for the host, and for the cattle that followed them. And the king of Israel said, Alas! that the LORD hath called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab! But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD, that we may enquire of the LORD by him? And one of the king of Israel’s servants answered and said, Here is Elisha the son of Shaphat, which poured water on the hands of Elijah. And Jehoshaphat said, The word of the LORD is with him. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him. And Elisha said unto the king of Israel, What have I to do with thee? get thee to the prophets of thy father [Ahab], and to the prophets of thy mother [Jezebel]. And the king of Israel said unto him, Nay: for the LORD hath called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab. And Elisha said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee, nor see thee. But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him. And he said, Thus saith the LORD, Make this valley full of ditches. For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts. And this is but a light thing in the sight of the LORD: he will deliver the Moabites also into your hand. And ye shall smite every fenced city, and every choice city, and shall fell every good tree, and stop all wells of water, and mar every good piece of land with stones. And it came to pass in the morning, when the meat offering was offered, that, behold, there came water by the way of Edom, and the country was filled with water. And when all the Moabites heard that the kings were come up to fight against them, they gathered all that were able to put on armour, and upward, and stood in the border. And they rose up early in the morning, and the sun shone upon the water, and the Moabites saw the water on the other side as red as blood: And they said, This is blood: the [allied] kings…have smitten one another [as when Germany broke the nonaggression pact with Russia in WWII] : now therefore, Moab, to the spoil. And when they came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose up and smote the Moabites, so that they fled before them: but they went forward smiting the Moabites, even in their country. And they beat down the cities, and on every good piece of land cast every man his stone, and filled it; and they stopped all the wells of water, and felled all the good trees: only in Kirharaseth left they the stones thereof; howbeit the slingers went about it, and smote it. And when the king of Moab saw that the battle was too sore for him, he took with him seven hundred men that drew swords, to break through even unto the king of Edom: but they could not. Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall.” (II K 3:35-27)
The Seed of the Serpent goes by many names, Marduk – Maru-tuk – Amar-utu, where it appears that Utu is the earlier version of the later Marduk, who only rose to prominence by that name in the language of Hammurabi / Nimrod.
The oldest documents mentioning Utu were written during the first stages of Sumerian writing and date to around 3500 BC, i.e. before the flood. Notice that Utu is a giant, portrayed with anthropomorphic features. More on this attribute later. Utu was worshipped from the very earliest times as the sun god, the one who lays false claim to the attributes of the Seed of the Woman, that “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” (Joh 1:4) He is visualized in the form of a man in this and subsequent versions of the sun god, but don’t be thrown off the scent. “Mysteriously,” virtually identical worship of the serpent in his own form is found in every culture around the world.
Worship of Utu by name began in earliest times, before the flood, and was carried through the flood along with his ancient records. 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. Just a few samples are provided here.
Utu was also known as Shamash in the Akkadian language used by later 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.
Marduk by this name rises to prominence at Babylon under Hammurabi / Nimrod. He takes over his father’s worship, and 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.
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 tweaking the images and details to adapt to the new environmentally determined culture.
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) the Hittite Sun god of Heaven is linked to the Mesopotamian Sun god Shamash, identified on the royal seals by what will become a familiar icon – a winged solar disc. He was the foremost oath god in interstate covenants as well as the god of law and truth.
Moving further north into Europe the Celtic sun god is called Belenus (also Belenos, Belinus, Bel, Beli Mawr), the “Fair Shining One” (or “The Shining God”). He was one of the most ancient and most-widely worshiped Celtic deities and is associated with the ancient fire festival and modern Sabbat Beltane.
Moving east to Persia (modern Iran) Mithra Old Persian: 𐎷𐎰𐎼 Miça) is the Zoroastrian angelic Divinity (yazata) of Covenant, Light, and Oath. In addition to being the divinity of contracts, Mithra is also a judicial figure, an all-seeing protector of Truth, and the guardian of the Waters. As also in the Indian religious texts, apas, (we can hear the similarity to apsu) the waters, are considered a primordial element.
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, that is named Marici in Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism, and 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.
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 flag or coat of arms.
Modern Westerners are most familiar with the European manifestation of Utu in the Greek and Roman cultures. Apollo is one of the oldest, most important and complex of the Olympian deities, i.e. 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 Apollo expressing his hermaphrodite 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…(Rev 9)
The Adversary countered by importing Mithraism, the worship of the Persian god Mithras, where it flourished in the 2nd through 4th centuries AD. 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 official sun god of 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.
You’ll notice that all the various cultural expressions of the original Seed of the Serpent, Marduk or whatever name in whatever language, report him and the other gods to have interacted on earth among mankind only in ancient times. Biblically, that corresponds to the time prior to the flood of Noah. There’s a reason for that which we will come to shortly, but for now focus on the fact that even when the gods walked on earth, they had problems accomplishing their mission to destroy humanity.
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 made the Adversary’s plan to destroy humanity so much harder.
From Clones to Hybrids
The Adversary needed to make changes in the spiritual 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 attribute, 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 1) cloning other gods to 2) natality by hybridizing demigods to 3) uncovering apparently human antichrists.
Unlike the clone Marduk, this Seed of the Serpent is a being with both spirit and human traits. 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)
The caduceus, which is similar to Ningeshzida’s sign, is a significant clue in our search for the seed of the serpent. This is the symbol of Hermes, from which we get hermetic magic with its operating principle of “As above, so below.” 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, Hermes is Mercury, the messenger of the gods, able to freely move through what are, to most others, impassable boundaries between heaven and earth.
How? Follow the signs. Notice, the similarity between the image of the entwined serpents and DNA.
Even more significantly, in the late 19th and early 20th century the caduceus became the symbol of medicine in the United States. This was the era following the development of the modern disciplines of medicine and pharmacy at the same time that there was an expansion of archeology leading to an explosive growth of interest in ancient cultures and the establishment of organizations devoted to the many derivatives of the occult. The occult practitioners frankly stated that they were getting teachings from the spirit world.
According to Enoch and Jude (who got his information from Enoch), certain angels accommodated themselves to the barrier created by human’s spiritual death by leaving their own fully operational spiritual habitation, which we now understand to consist of 10-or-more hyper-dimensions, and limiting themselves to just the four earthly dimensions in which humans operate. Their 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.
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation…Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh” (Jude 6-7)
“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, 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)
“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…I will…I will…I will…I will be like the most High…” (Isa 14:12-14)
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.
Next we find Asclepius, a demigod, or hybrid angel-human, who received his healing powers from his father Apollo, who was a twin to Hermes since both were clones of Lucifer.
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. 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 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)
Since the fallen angels who engaged in sexual intercourse with human women were imprisoned for this transgression, how does Lucifer get away with it, before or after the flood?
He is the ultimate godfather.
He sends his seed to do the dirty work for him to avoid going to prison. But since his direct seed are clones of himself, he can distance himself from the act while still being the father by genetics.
From Hybridization to Adoption
There is another aspect of “fathering” that may explain 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.” Lucifer may get released on his defense that people voluntarily submit to his leadership, he didn’t force anyone.
“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)
Under the terms of the new covenant, after the Christ empowers us to become sons of God, it stands to reason that we no longer need intermediary priests, and Jesus’ instructions not to call any man “father” is obviously not referring to a family member but a spiritual authority figure. In our day we can most easily understand the concept in Hitler’s “Fatherland“, the Nazi government officials to whom the Nazis gave absolute obedience. Think “Fuhrer“.
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)
Clearly the political context of this prophecy is important, so let’s fill that in.
“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 agreed to be made the son of the Assyrian. In this case Ahaz joined his nation to T’s empire, signified not just by signing his name to a political treaty but by legally changing his own identity to merge with the high king, becoming an adopted son of this king of kings – who is the human personification of the god.
And that works. That is exactly how humans become sons of God.
“God sent forth his Son…To redeem them that were under the law, 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)
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)
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. Also, 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)
”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)
Another vision of Lucifer’s political dynasty identifies the heads of state as beasts.
“And four great beasts came up from the sea [above the firmament], diverse one from another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings… 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…a second, like to a bear…another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast also had four heads...a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth...and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it …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 lives were prolonged for a season and time.” (Dan 7:3-7)
The first beast can be easily identified with Nebuchadnezzar in some respects, but not in all. It appears that Nebuchadnezzar was simply the human representative – AKA vicar – and son of who he himself acknowledges to be the true, the divine ruler.
”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 [note, this specifies a different type of beast than what Nebuchadnezzar transformed into] 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)
King David certainly acknowledged that the God of Israel was the true ruler over Israel, and he was the human co-ruler.
“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)
Co-regency between a living king father and his son was not at all uncommon, especially in cases making it difficult for the king father to move about in public.
“Now king David was old and stricken in years...The king also said unto them, Take with you the servants of your lord, and cause Solomon my son to ride upon mine own mule, and bring him down to Gihon: And let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anoint him there king over Israel: and blow ye with the trumpet, and say, God save king Solomon. Then ye shall come up after him, that he may come and sit upon my throne; for he shall be king in my stead: and I have appointed him to be ruler over Israel and over Judah… And Zadok the priest took an horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon. And they blew the trumpet; and all the people said, God save king Solomon. And all the people came up after him, and the people piped with pipes, and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth rent with the sound of them…Verily our lord king David hath made Solomon king…And also Solomon sitteth on the throne of the kingdom. And moreover the king’s servants came to bless our lord king David, saying, God make the name of Solomon better than thy name, and make his throne greater than thy throne. And the king bowed himself upon the bed. And also thus said the king, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, which hath given one to sit on my throne this day, mine eyes even seeing it…So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David. And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem. Then sat Solomon upon the throne of David his father; and his kingdom was established greatly.” (I Ki 1, 2:10-12)
“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)
Rule by co-regents reconciles Daniel’s account of spirit rulers with human history’s account of human rulers, and matches the frank statements of the Bible and even pagan human rulers, as seen in the preamble to Hammurabi’s Code.
”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 frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers: 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, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and 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: And 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)
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 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 “…of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah…the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.” (Dan 1:6-7)
Co-regency of hyper-dimensional beings in the heavens with earthly kings is inferred when Isaiah prophesies “that the Lord shall punish the host of the 1) high ones that are on high, and 2) the kings of the earth upon the earth.” (Isa 24:21)
Daniel’s famous prophetic beasts battle the King of heaven for control of earth. They are often taken as emblematic of the empires, which can certainly be true, but these are also descriptions of actual creatures with bodies that are destroyed.
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 instantly recognized that Churchill = England, Roosevelt = America, Stalin = Russia. As Louis XIV, the Sun King said about his absolute power, “I am the State.”
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.)
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)
Bear in mind, Daniel was not just a Jewish prophet. He was an international diplomat in what had become the center of world government, which in theocratic Babylonia’s State Department routinely involved communicating with the spirit beings understood at that time to be ruling all the kingdoms of the earth. Bear in mind that the Bible also presents these spirit beings as being the true rulers of the world.
“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)
“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.” (Dan 1:17-21)
“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)
“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)
It was in their roles as international diplomats that Holy Spirit-filled men like Joseph and Moses in Egypt, Isaiah in Judah, and Daniel in Babylon and Persia became involved in crises where intelligence gathering is of the utmost importance, and negotiations with other leaders included the gods.
“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. 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, 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)
“At that time [the ascendancy of Assyria] Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, [as an aside, here is an example of a co-regent] sent letters and a present to Hezekiah [to make a political alliance]…And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed them…all that was found in his treasures [sufficient means to fund war]…Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him...Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD.” (Isa 39:1-6)
“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: 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. And now will I shew thee the truth… (Dan 10:20-11:2)
In his famous prophesy precisely predicting future political events, Daniel’s angelic messenger clearly defines the true kings 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 three full weeks…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)
Can we bring our post-modern materialistic selves to accept that the true rulers of the kingdoms of the world are spirit beings as clearly portrayed 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. The mingling of the hyper-dimensional rulers with the four-dimensional clay humans enables them to become more openly involved in government, breaking through the cross-dimensional communications barrier. 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 as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage.” (Lu 17:26-27)
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? 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)
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)
