Key precept: Hyper-dimensional beings need human collaborators to most effectively express themselves in the lower four dimensions.
Noah 1056 AM – 2006 AM
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” (Genesis 6:13)
“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthew 24:37)
Obviously the characteristics of the pre-flood world are key to understanding our world’s future. Since the history of Noah’s days can be uncovered, this puts the Bible’s prophetic value light years ahead of later obtuse prophets like Nostradamus.
If we analyze the biblical narrative like we learned in elementary school, as a book report, we will realize that the first six chapters establish:
- The setting: the heavens and earth.
- The characters: all the hosts / various classifications of inhabitants of the heavens and the earth – immortal hyperdimensional beings and mortal humans and animals.
- The problem or plot: corruption.
- The climax or resolution to the problem: destruction of the corrupt and a fresh start.
Any literary medium relates a sequence of events linked together by the theme. Each wave of events climaxes higher and higher, culminating in the ultimate climax – The End.
Better Call Saul [a prequel to Breaking Bad] has consistently been, and still is, one of the best dramas on television…a character study focused on the increasingly unscrupulous lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk)…now that we’re closer to the end…there’s an even stronger sense of foreboding hanging over the show. That’s apparent in the circumstances Jimmy creates and/or unwittingly finds himself in…that convey there’s something rotten taking over this fictional version of Albuquerque.
I am well aware of what a fantastic, thoughtfully crafted piece of television Better Call Saul is. Still, whenever I come back to it after a between-season hiatus, I’m astonished all over again by how well it’s crafted on every single level. Every aspect — the writing, directing, acting, production and costume design — has been rendered with tremendous precision, but the series still feels like an independent organism going in surprising directions all on its own. [The same can be said of the Bible.]
One of the pleasures of Better Call Saul is the extent to which watching it is like looking backward with 20/20 hindsight…
We should also view Genesis 1-6 as a prequel, not just to the rest of the Bible, but to the rest of human history. “One of the pleasures” – or, more appropriately, given the Bible is not entertainment but a heads-up on the real doomsday scenario – one of the advantages, of knowing how it all ends, is “looking backward with 20/20 hindsight.”
There have been roughly 4,500 years since the flood, i.e. triple the amount of time of the 1,500 years of pre-flood civilization. Yet despite numerous empires demonstrating appalling evil against mankind, we have not yet reached the utter depths of corruption of Noah’s days triggering the end of the world. What does it take?
For starters, we may think that we know what “corrupted” means, but in the critical context of judgment we need to know precisely what God means.
Unfortunately, if you turn to Bible commentaries to find the answer, you will be assaulted with a barrage of opinions based on the limited historical and scientific knowledge at the time of the commentator.
If we stick with the original report and the hermeneutical interpretive processes outlined in the first post, we will find that the evidence for a determination of “corrupted” has been documented in the narrative. We don’t have to accept any person’s guesswork, no matter how highly educated and respected they may be.
In the medical and legal professions where life and death hang in the balance, before a diagnosis like “cancer” or a verdict of “guilty” can be made, the evidence on which the determination has been made has to be documented in writing and presented as proof. The Bible follows, even more stringently, the same documentation process.
“I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened…and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works…” (Revelation 20:11-14)
In the case of world-wide destruction decreed because of corruption of all flesh in Genesis chapter 6, the prior documentation that this must refer to can only be God’s production and intended reproduction of all flesh after their kind, documented as good in chapter 1.
“And God created
- every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind
- every winged fowl after his kind:..
And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply
- the beast of the earth after his kind,
- and cattle after their kind,
- and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind:
God created man in his own image, God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
And God saw everything that he had made and, behold, it was very good…And on the seventh day God…rested.” (Genesis 1:21-31)
But by the time of the flood, everything wasn’t good any longer.
“Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God….And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth….And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.” (Genesis 6-7:1)
Note – this statement about Noah’s family being right-eous, not corrupted, as well the next statement separating out some clean animals from the rest of the herd, establishes the fact that all flesh refers to all types of flesh, not every single individual. This is important, so just file that thought away.
- Of every clean / pure beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female:
- and of beasts that are not clean / impure / corrupt by two, the male and his female.” (Genesis 7:1-2) read the English translation of this link from right to left as it aligns with the original Hebrew.)
This categorization is assumed by some to refer to the animals allowed, or not, for sacrifice, since only clean animals were sacrificed at the end of the flood.
“And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the LORD smelled a sweet savour.” (Genesis 8:20-21)
Note, however, that at the same time this categorization did not refer to animals allowed, or not, for consumption. All animals, i.e. clean and unclean, were allowed.
“And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them…Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.” (Genesis 9:1-3)
This is contrary to Mosaic law.
“This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth: To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.” (Leviticus 11:46-47)
So we can’t backdate Mosaic law to Noah’s time.
Most of all, we should understand that at this point in the data-driven analysis, only a correlation, not a causation between Noah bringing more clean than unclean animals on the ark and using them for sacrifices has been documented. In other words, while there is a connection between 1) Noah brings more clean than unclean animals onto the ark followed by 2) he sacrifices one of each of the clean animals, the text doesn’t provide a cause – effect connection. We are only assuming that the reason Noah brought more was to experience acceptable losses when sacrificing. The text does not state this as a fact.
There is much confusion in the understanding and correct usage of causation and correlation. These two terms are always interchanged especially in the fields of health and scientific studies.
Every time we see a link between an event or action with another, what comes to mind is that the event or action has caused the other. This is not always so, linking one thing with another does not always prove that the result has been caused by the other…
Causation is an action or occurrence that can cause another. The result of an action is always predictable, providing a clear relation between them which can be established with certainty…
Correlation is an action or occurrence that can be linked to another. The action does not always result to another action or occurrence but you can see that there is a relationship between them.
So let’s not jump to a conclusion, but instead just stay with recognized correlations. So far we have:
- “good, clean, pure” resulting in God’s rest, contrasted with
- “not good, unclean, impure, corrupted” resulting in God taking corrective action.
“The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him…in that day [of judgment], saith the LORD of hosts [armies, so during a battle]…I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the…unclean spirit to pass out of the land.” (Zechariah 12:1, 13:2)
This Old Testament Hebrew text corroborates the many New Testament Greek passages linking “unclean” with evil spirits judged and banished by Christ Jesus and his anointed disciples.
“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out,” (Matthew 10:1)
As we further explore this essential collateral information we learn that the text links “impure” with reproductive and non-reproductive sexually aberrant acts associated with pagan practices.
“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that
- giveth any of his seed / children unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
- And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.
- And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
- And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
- And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.
- If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
- And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.
- And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.
- And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
- And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off / isolated, quarantined to avoid contamination in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.
- And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness / menstruating, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.
- And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister, nor of thy father’s sister: for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity.
- And if a man shall lie with his uncle’s wife, he hath uncovered his uncle’s nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless.
- And if a man shall take his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother’s nakedness; they shall be childless.
And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
- Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean.
- A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.
We can further prove this by using the Bible as a self-defining dictionary by tracking the same Hebrew word translated here as “corrupt” – שָׁחַת – through its other translations into English.
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was שָׁחַת corrupt / destroyed / ruined, [no longer what God had created as a good thing] for all flesh had שָׁחַת corrupted / destroyed his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will שָׁחַת destroy them with the earth….” (Genesis 6:12-13)
“And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he שָׁחַת spilled / destroyed it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him.” (Gen 38:7-10)
“the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly…And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous…I will…שָׁחַת destroy it…And there came two angels to Sodom at even…the men of Sodom compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them…“Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven…God שָׁחַת destroyed the cities of the plain.” (Genesis 18:20-21, 28, 19:1-5, 24-29)
The corruption from Noah’s day, repeated in Sodom, that was so vile as to demand utter destruction is defined for us as mortal humans having sex with hyper dimensional immortal angels. This passage on Sodom is quoted practically verbatim by Isaiah.
“bring them forth…that we may know that ye are gods:” (Isaiah 41:22-23)
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jude 6-7)
This should not come as a shock.
The concept, practice and purpose of merging one’s identity with another’s is easily recognized in behaviors and images expressing solidarity in sports, politics, ethnic heritage, and fashion.
Humans who want to break the glass ceiling of their four dimensional limitations to expand into the hyper dimensional state must connect to the spirit dimension in some way. God has offered the opportunity to return to the state of hyper dimensional spirit power by merging our identity with his. Since he is wholly righteous, the only alternative for those who do not want to be righteous is to instead merge their identity with unrighteous hyper dimensional beings.
Author Vivianne Crowley says in Wicca: The Old Religion in the New Age…”the sacred marriage is outwardly a marriage of two people, but inwardly it is a marriage of the two within one person.”
Ritual sex…can be used to raise energy, create magical power, or find a sense of spiritual communion with a partner…In Her Hidden Children, author Chas Clifton writes, “Many Pagan religions include invocation and possession by their gods. Wicca, in particular, extends that possession to sexual acts…uniting in their bodies the cosmic and the most personal energies of planetary life.
“Sermons from the Mound”, an unmistakable sexual play on words, describes the inevitable convergence of sexual depravity with false gods.
Every religious tradition has rules—spoken and unspoken—around sexuality, and sacred texts come into play as these rules are navigated in dating and marriage. What does your faith tradition really say about the meaning of our sexuality and sexual activity? What role does sex play in the life of the spirit?…
“The Charge of the Goddess,” penned by Wiccan priestess Doreen Valiente (1922-1999), is a piece of liturgy so powerful that its influence has reached far outside Wicca into spiritual feminism, the sex-positive community, and contemporary Paganism as a whole. When used in ritual, the Charge is spoken by a priestess who is embodying the presence of the Goddess. She says:
And ye shall be free from slavery; and as a sign that ye are really free, ye shall be naked in your rites…
I just have to break in here and point out “a sign that ye are really free ye shall be naked” WHAT A LIE!!!! My spirit and emotions are so hyper charged by this utterly outrageous distortion of reality I’m having trouble breathing and its a good thing I haven’t eaten yet this morning. Hello!!! Sex trade??!! Try this on for a reality check, and I’m not linking to the website below for obvious reasons that I don’t want my computer flooded with offers to immerse myself in the filth that so many find themselves addicted to. Freedom? No. Bondage.

Many Wiccans and witches believe that all things contain a primal energy or vital life force that moves within and among them. This energy is most easily experienced through sexual activity, especially when it is raised with spiritual intent. Through their sexual intimacy, practitioners can participate in a primal moment of creation: a moment when two divine forces or beings—imagined as a many-gendered God/dess making love with her mirror reflection; or a lunar Goddess and a solar God; or a genderless yin and yang, nothing and something—communed together in an erotic union whose vibrations continue to animate the universe.
This and the following article give the logical reason why promiscuous sexuality is an irreducible part of any attempt at increasing one’s spiritual life energy / power apart from the source of all life energy. It must be consumed from another living being.
The Sexual Vampire: is a bare bones straight out, call it like it is, definition. It is an understanding of the base of the creature and what they are about. There are still many different types of sexual vampire, that part never changes, but what doesn’t change is that at the base of it, sex has to be involved, either in action, intention or thought…
Regardless of the means in which you engage in it, whether purely physical, or totally psychological, the end result is that some element of sexual energy has to be involved….There are basically two categories…Biological and Energy Feeders…
Coitus feeding: This is literally the physical act of having sexual intercourse…there are those who find anything other than the very act itself, isn’t doing anything…
Organic Fluid Feeding: Well this gets to the sticky heated mess of it all. The basics of it are that you need the sexual fluids, whether that be in the form of semen, sexually excited blood, menstrual or vaginal fluids, these feeders claim that without it, they cannot sustain themselves appropriately.
Flirts don’t have to actually have sexual contact in any way, merely evoke a sexual response in others. This doesn’t have to be a response focused on their own form. A ‘flirt’ can be in a situation where they draw another to a strip club, or watch a sexy movie, or for that matter sexualize another in a manner that draws those hints of sexual desire from others.
The ‘Tease’…is the one who makes you wiggle in your seat. They tend to end up in your dreams, or haunting your desire on some evening when you are alone and don’t have to account for your secret desires.
The Tempter: doesn’t just want you turned on, they want you to explore dark places. They combine sexual fears and fantasy, to lead people to places they might never explore on their own…These can be the most dangerous however. Simply because one has a fantasy, doesn’t mean it should be explored. A smart ‘Tempter’ understands that if they draw someone into something that is psychologically unhealthy…you no longer feel excited and a little scared, but actually reach into self loathing.
Speaking of sexual exploitation…
–National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy director,
Paul Ettelbrick (Kurtz, 2003)
Michelangelo Signorile describes the campaign “to fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution completely–to demand the right to marry not as a way of adhering to society’s moral codes, but rather to…radically alter an archaic institution.”…
study showed that 28 percent of homosexual males had had sexual encounters with one thousand or more partners. Furthermore, 79 percent said more than half of their sex partners were strangers…Almost half of the white homosexual males…said that they had had at least 500 different sexual partners during the course of their homosexual careers,”…
Since part of the compulsion of homosexuality seems to be a need on the part of the homophile to “absorb” masculinity from his sexual partners,[emphasis added] he must be constantly on the lookout for [new partners].
Gay life is most typical and works best when sexual contacts are impersonal and even anonymous…far more preoccupied with sex than heterosexuals are, and far more likely to think of a good sex life as many partners under many exciting circumstances….
It must be remembered that in the gay world the only real criterion of value is physical attractiveness…The young homosexual will find that his homosexual brothers usually only care for him as a sexual object. Although they may invite him out to dinner and give him a place to stay, when they have satisfied their sexual interest in him, they will likely forget about his existence and his own personal needs [emphasis added]…
Childhood sexual abuse is a subject that has received much attention in recent years. Twenty-eight to 33% of women and 12 to 18% of men were victims of childhood or adolescent sexual abuse (Roland, 2002, as cited in Long, Burnett, & Thomas, 2006). Sexual abuse that does not include touch and other types of sexual abuse are reported less often, which means this number of individuals who have been sexually abused in their childhood may actually be greater (Maltz, 2002)…
Childhood sexual abuse has been correlated with higher levels of depression, guilt, shame, self-blame, eating disorders, somatic concerns, anxiety, dissociative patterns, repression, denial, sexual problems, and relationship problems…
A study found that women survivors reported significantly more medical concerns than did people who have not experienced sexual abuse…often related to pelvic pain, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, and difficulty swallowing (Ratican, 1992).
Stress and anxiety are often long-term effects of childhood sexual abuse…A study compared the posttraumatic stress symptoms in Vietnam veterans and adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The study revealed that childhood sexual abuse is traumatizing and can result in symptoms comparable to symptoms from war-related trauma (McNew & Abell, 1995).
Amid the reports of rape cases and sexual predation, a new study has found that sex addiction is on the rise. This new finding revealed by researchers at the University of Minnesota states that 10 per cent of men and seven percent of women are in a constant battle to control their sexual urge and thoughts.
The research which was carried out in America shows that the number of people struggling with difficult-to-control urges is creating concern for psychologists.
Many have attributed the rise to access to explicit content online and casual sex.
Now that we know how some people exploit others through sex (duh), and the psychological damage that can be caused through incest, not just with children but in crossing other relationship boundaries, and that certain dangerous social groups energize themselves through blood practices like snuff films and drinking menstrual fluids, perhaps the Mosaic law doesn’t sound so archaic anymore?
Before condemning the one ancient law code most people have any awareness of at all, consider the alternative.
There was a time when all aspects of society were grounded in worship of the gods who controlled all aspects of life and death. Therefore, all members of society were required to subject themselves to them through worship and rituals as per the gods’ demands to meet their objectives.
When the Gods Mingle with Mankind
Ancient legends reveal many details of the days of Noah. While there are many false and twisted elements to what are deemed nothing but imaginative myths by the same intellectuals who dismiss the biblical record of ancient history, there is much to be learned by matching the terse biblical account with the common elements found in other more expansive records.
Greek mythology recounts that Zeus, AKA Jupiter by the Romans, leads a rebellion against the Titan gods (during biblical day 1 of creation) in the Titanomachy. This begins the reign of the Olympian gods who interacted openly with humans. These are the gods with which we are most familiar in Western culture.
It is no secret that the ancient Egyptians consider their civilization as the legacy of gods who came not from Earth but from elsewhere in the cosmos, and Pre-Pharaonic Egypt seems to back up this theory. One of the most important ancient texts that can tell us more about this time in history is the Papyrus of Turin, which lists all the Pharaohs who ruled over Ancient Egypt. Not only does this list include all of the ‘official’ historic Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, but it also includes the deities or “gods” who came from above and reigned over the lands of Egypt before the first mortal Pharaoh of Egypt…This time in history, the pre-pharaonic period remains a great mystery for most scholars and Egyptologists, mostly because they cannot accept what is written since it goes directly against the beliefs of most historians, archaeologists, and Egyptologists.
Hindu mythology, some of the oldest extant records of the pre-flood civilization, names Krishna as the head of 33 million gods. While undoubtedly not an accurate number it does match the biblical report of an extremely large number of angels. The Vedas describe warfare among the gods to the extent of what seems to be the use of atomic weapons. Of particular note is the Kurukshetra War at Mahabhaata, AKA Dwarka, Krishna’s capital. Astronomical details given in the account allow us to date this sentinel event to about 3,000 B.C., a few hundred years before the flood. Huge numbers of people, 25% of our current global population, are recorded as having been wiped out in just that one location.
The Enuma Elish fleshes out with vivid descriptions the sparse biblical record of the gods producing terrifying god-human-animal hybrids for war.
“Dead things [think vampires, having no connection to the source of life but not inactive] are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof. Hell is naked [exposed, no secrets] before him, and destruction hath no covering…He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end... He divideth the sea [above and below the firmament] with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.” (Job 26:5-12)
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, the original sea, outer space], 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
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 Anu-kki!’
This part of the creation story matches both the explicit statement in Genesis 6 and the implicit account of Day – Night conflict in Genesis 1 as detailed in the post The Beginning.
Tiamat / Mother Hubur, which we can understand as “the Motherland”, the congregate of nameless inhabitants of the sea of outer space, or second heaven – certainly doesn’t reflect the actions of God’s righteous angels. She undoubtedly represents a roiling mass 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.
In a plot popularized by the movie Men in Black, 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 / rival faction of angels /aliens. 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.
“...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 [after than, THEN] 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)
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” between the Democrats and Republicans or the conservatives end up voting evil Antichrist into office.
The strategy of God clearing the battlefield by letting the wicked rebels fight it out amongst themselves has worked more than once.
“And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude.And when Gideon was come…he divided the [his] three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man’s hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers…And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon…and the LORD set every man’s sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled.” (Judges 7:12-22)
The elevation of the cloned Seed of the Serpent / Marduk during the war at the beginning of history recorded in the Enuma Elish by his angelic followers fighting against other rebel angels is exactly the same context in which we find him elevated to absolute power during the trumpet calls to war between heaven and earth prophesied in Revelation. Only at that time he will be supported by a host of human followers.
“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open [judgment, equivalent to the Tablet of Destinies]: and he set his right foot upon the sea [Tiamat above the firmament], 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 [border, firmament] of the sea [of outer space above the firmament], and saw a beast [Marduk] 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 [Satan] 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)
Please bear in mind that the biblical passages I’ve matched with the Enuma Elish are demonstrating the same context – NOT purportedly matching identically. History repeats itself, remember? Most importantly, only the Bible prophecies 100% accurately. The Enuma Elish doesn’t.
Ea [Satan, the Serpent] called Marduk [Seed of the Serpert] into his secluded presence. Giving counsel, he told him what was in his heart.
Marduk came forth, the wisest of the gods…He opened his mouth, saying to me [Ea / the Dragon] “If indeed as your avenger, I am to vanquish Tiamat [rival alien factions] 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!”
[The Dragon speaking to the assembly] Now hasten hither and promptly fix for him [Marduk] your decrees, That he may go forth to face your mighty foe!
[Then Marduk claims the prerogatives of the Son of] “God…Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things…Who being…the express image of his person [as a clone Marduk is the express image of the original Dragon including his legs], and upholding all things by the word of his power…sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.” (Heb 1:1-4)]
They erected for him an ample throne. Facing his fathers [his betters, his elders, the assembly of wise men], he sat down, presiding. [Remember, “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. I will sit…”] “You, Marduk are the most honored of the great gods, Your decree is unrivaled, your word is Anu / Yahweh [i.e. equal in power and guaranteed to come to pass as that of Anu]. From this day unchangeable shall be your pronouncement. To raise or bring low—these shall be in your hand. Your utterance shall be true, your command shall be unimpeachable. No one among the gods shall transgress your bounds!… [“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies;” (Rev 13:4-5)]
O Marduk, you are indeed our avenger. We have granted you kingship over the entire universe. Your word shall be supreme when you sit in assembly. Your weapons shall not fail; they shall smash your foes! O lord, spare the life of him who trusts you, But pour out the life of the god who seized evil.” [“And he had power to…cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Rev 13:15)]
…Joyfully they paid homage: “Marduk is king!” They conferred on him scepter, throne, and vestment; They gave him unequaled weapons that ward off the foes: “Go and terminate the life of Tiamat / rival forces. May the winds bear her blood to places undisclosed.” [And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth…And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. (Revelation 17:15-16)]
Marduk’s destiny thus fixed, the gods, his fathers / elders, Caused him to go the way of success and achievement…Then the lord raised up the flood-storm, his mighty weapon...to enrage Tiamat / leader or representative of the opposing forces, like Hitler or Goliath he spoke the following words [taunting being a common instigation of a fight to agitate the opposition and gain the upper hand]: “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 heard 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 [to guarantee they come to pass] and fastened them on his own breast [to safeguard them]. When he had vanquished and subdued his adversaries… Nudimmud’s / Enki’s / Ea’s / Satan’s desire had achieved.
History is written to serve the current politicians. For example, after their defeat in WWI, German citizens developed DlochstoBlegenden, or stab-in-the-back conspiracy theories that their war efforts had been ruined by internal subversive forces. These claims contributed strongly to the mass appeal and rise of Nazi political power.
According to the Russian government:
The most important thing to keep in mind about the Second World War is that it was a fundamentally Soviet-German war…Hitler’s war machines were smashed up by the Red Army, fundamentally, it was the Soviet Union that won the Second World War…I’ve argued that it’s possible that the Soviet Union could have won the war on its own without the West… Of course Western politicians have an invested interest in downplaying the Soviet role and, of course, Russia’s role in the war, particularly in this present conjuncture where Russian-Western relations are in such a bad state.
You may patriotically consider the Russians to be propagating the propaganda, but according to statistics, the Russians are right. They certainly refused to surrender under the most dire conditions.
Data show that the now-defunct Soviet Union had the highest number of WWII casualties. By far. As many as 27 million people died. Broken down…up to 11.4 million military deaths, up to 10 million civilian deaths due to military activity, and an additional 8 million to 9 million deaths due to famine and disease. More than 14 million members of the Soviet Union’s military were wounded as a result of the war…United States: Approximately 419,400 [military deaths].
The United States didn’t risk American lives, other than in transporting supplies – for profit – to its allies, until forced by Germany’s declaration of war.
At the very moment his troops were being decimated on the outskirts of Moscow in early December 1941, Adolf Hitler’s attention was riveted elsewhere. On Sunday, December 7, 1941, Japanese warplanes had attacked the U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The next day, responding to the devastating air raid which killed over 2,400 American sailors and wounded another thousand, the United States declared war on Japan.
This had enormous implications for Hitler…
With the United States reeling from the Pearl Harbor attack, Hitler calculated, the bulk of America’s naval power would surely be diverted to the South Pacific, away from Europe, thereby leaving the Atlantic shipping lanes vulnerable…
All things considered, therefore, a declaration of war against the U.S. appeared to be best move…
The American reaction was swift. That day, the United States Congress declared war on Germany…
For Hitler, declaring war on America would prove to be his biggest political mistake of the war – a truly lethal blunder…The Führer now had to contend with three principal opponents – America, Britain and Russia – whose combined reservoir of manpower and total war production capacity dwarfed Nazi Germany – at a time when Germany had already lost a quarter of all troops and many thousands of tanks and planes on the Russian Front.
Even worse, Hitler had foolishly joined Japan’s war against America with absolutely no guarantee from the Japanese they would join his war against Russia. And they didn’t. This allowed the Russians to transfer 30 well-trained Siberian divisions away from Japanese-threatened areas in southeastern Russia to the opposite side of the country, where they blasted away at the beleaguered Germans outside Moscow.
For Adolf Hitler, however, the consequences of December 11th were not readily apparent. By now, the Führer was seeing only what he wanted to see – recognizing only the facts he desired to support his own version of reality – his own truth.
Likewise, we can recognize the Serpent’s propaganda 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, following the sequence of events as talking points of this “incident report” as it might be related in a court martial.
- God laid the foundations of the earth when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy.
- God 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
- God commanded and caused the dayspring / Lucifer to know his place that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it
- The earth is turned as clay to the seal; and they / the wicked stand [motionless, empty] as a garment.
- And from the wicked their light – life / spirit– is withholden, and the high / i.e. lifted up in battle arm shall be broken / made powerless.” (Job 38:4-15)
The loss of hyperdimensional warriors frozen in time and space, as well as the inability of hyperdimensional beings to interact with a explosively increasing host of new human enemies required a new battle strategy.
“And it came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose…There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” (Genesis 6:1-4)
Some Bible scholars interpret “sons of God” as “righteous sons of Adam”, but that ignores the biblical interpretation of “sons of God”. See the post In Earth as in Heaven for details. These sons of God are simply hyperdimensional beings created by God who rebelled against his righteous plan for them and chose instead to procreate with human women to make super-human hybrids.
One of the biggest (yes, that’s a pun) deterrents to believing this biblical passage is the seemingly fairy-tale account of giants. However, the sciences provide both the evidence and the explanation for giants.
Reports and traces of fierce giants terrorizing the local population are found all over the globe from the Old World to the New, demonstrated below in images from Egypt, Greece, Mesoamerica, and North America. Note the giant footprint with 6 toes and the giant beings with antlers on their heads in the Anasazi petroglyphs at Canyonlands, Utah.
While pituitary tumors and diet can influence an individual’s growth to a certain extent, significant size difference is due to genes.
Cross-breeding of species is known to result in gigantism. The liger, a cross breed of a lion and a tiger, is an example of this dynamic. In lions, the father’s genes encourage growth and mother’s genes limit growth, while the opposite is true of tigers. Therefore, when a male lion with growth-encouraging genes is mated with a female tiger whose genes do not inhibit the rampant growth, their offspring grows exceptionally large.
The giants resulting from the cross-breeding of human and angels who called themselves gods are commonly depicted in Sumerian art but most famously known from Greek legend as the demi, or half, gods. Their maternal mortality allowed for growth and development, up to gigantic proportions and exceptional strength given the time, while their paternal hyper-dimensionality allowed super-natural abilities. Angels/gods are always depicted in legends – and the Bible – as awe-inspiring warriors.
- “…angels, that excel in strength” (Psa 103:20)
- “…angels…are greater in power and might [than humans]” (II Pet 2:11)
- “So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep [guard] the way of the tree of life.” (Gen 3:24)
- “And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.” (Mat 28:2-4)
- “And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the LORD repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, It is enough: stay now thy hand.” (II Sam 24:16)
On the down side, a functional genome only holds a specific number of genes. This leads to adverse effects from intentional breeding. In the push to gather certain genes, other genes are crowded out. A viable organism requires a complete set of chromosomes, called a karyotype. Think of it like playing poker – you need to play with a full deck of cards. Not only the full number of cards, but each of the distinct cards. In the case of humans, we need 23 distinct pairs – 1, 2, 3, and so on.
In the first generation giants, obtaining only one each of the 23 pairs of human genes from Mom and none from Dad would result in the diminution or outright loss of human functions.
Growth inhibitors weren’t the only genes lost in cross-breeding. Like Superman, the giants had their weaknesses, deleterious genetic disorders. This mosaic from a 4th century Roman Villa presents numerous examples.
Giants with single and triple eyes are often reported, these are known human birth defects.
Cardiovascular failure from inability to keep pace with the tremendous demand by huge muscles may have been treated with heart transplants, explaining the original reason for cutting a beating heart out of a still-living victim.
There is likely a medical reason behind the ancient religious ceremonies requiring constant blood sacrifices to these beings – a need for metabolic components not produced naturally, or in sufficient quantities, or throughout, their long lifespans. This is known to occur in humans.
- Inborn errors of metabolism are genetically based conditions in which necessary enzymes for metabolizing nutrients are lacking because the genes that code for the production of those enzymes are missing or mutated. These are treated by avoiding the problematic foods – as in lactose intolerance – or by consuming or injecting the necessary components like Lactaid, insulin, Vitamin B12, thyroid hormone, etc.
- Blood disorders are genetically based conditions in which necessary blood components are lacking because the genes that code for those components are missing or mutated. Hemophilia was passed down to many royal descendants of Queen Victoria. Porphyria can actually be treated by consuming blood, and may be one source of vampire legends.
Just like you can’t say that a cross-breed liger or a tigon is a lion or a tiger, you can’t say that the new breed of beings are simply bigger angels or humans. These “new things” have their own identity beyond size. We can use the Hebrew word for giant(s), which is nephil(im). However, after the original passage in Genesis 6, the same word nephilim is only used one other time, referring to giants encountered by the Israelites scoping out the land of Canaan, where “great stature” is the indeed the key identifying feature.
“And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw they giants/nephilim, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants/nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” (Nu 13:32-33)
Focusing our word search elsewhere, we can track the translation of the root word for nephil, which is naphal, or “fall, cast down”. With this in mind, the nephilim are The Fallen Ones. Since the New Testament’s original language is Greek we can’t track the Hebrew words there, but we can follow the context and the same English words. Lucifer, of course, is the prototypical fallen angel.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!…For thou hast said in thine heart…I will be like the most High.” (Isa 14:12-14)
“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, [in essence, “You think that’s something? I can top that.] I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” (Lu 10:17-18)
Bear in mind that falling is experienced by the individual, while “casting” is the same action from the perspective of the individual making it happen. Satan is so powerful that he can cast down other angels as defeated enemies.
“And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down.” (Dan 8:9-11)
Humans also fall, and for the same reason – open and deliberate rebellion against Almighty God, which lands them smack in the middle of the nephilim’s camp.
“Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory. The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves…O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths…The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof…” (Isa 3:8-14)
“Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the Lord..the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it…For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the Lord.” (Jer 8:12-17)
Jeremiah describes exactly the activity of the nephilim. It should be noted that the Hebrew word for “strong ones” is also translated “of the angels“. And to further make the point, the passage specifies what we have discovered to be angelic beings in the previous post – serpents and cockatrices.
Falling away from God is only one side of the story. The purpose and goal in the action is falling to the other side which strengthens and empowers the enemy.
Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive certain of the poor of the people, and the residue of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away [from trusting in God], that fell to [repeated to emphasize trusting in] the king of Babylon…” (Jer 52:15)”
One certain place to find the angel/human hybrids is at the end of time when judgment is passed on every creature. There we find that abomination is used as a diagnostic criteria for triage during the most critical time in history when beings are literally selected for extermination. (Notice how antichrist copies everything in God’s playbook?)
“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God…And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.” (Rev 20:12-13)
“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But… there shall in no wise enter into [the new heaven and new earth] any thing that…worketh abomination…” (Rev 21:7-8:,27)
We need to be sure we understand this word abomination. The first mention of the word was written at a time when knowledge that has since become ancient and obscure was contemporary and so well-known as to not need explanation. This first mention associates it with the well-known cultural practice of not sharing a meal with people of another religion.
“And they set on for him [Joseph] by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.” (Gen 43:32)
Do you seriously think that all that is meant here by abomination is that the Egyptians found sharing a dining room with Hebrews repulsive? No. As we become acquainted with ancient ways we will find that the abomination was the act of mixing the profane with the sacred.
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy…And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the Lord…It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire. And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted. Therefore every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity, because he hath profaned the hallowed thing of the Lord: and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.” (Lev 19:1-8)
Eating incorporates the substance being eaten into the body of the eater. We recognize the physical effects of eating foods that lead to either increased physical strength and health, or obesity or malnutrition and sickness. We recognize the emotional effects of consuming “comfort foods”, alcohol and other substances. The Israelites and the Egyptians and other religious practitioners throughout time acknowledge the spiritual effects of consuming foods ritually prepared or sacrificed to God or the gods for the purpose of incorporating the essence of God or the god into the eater. A modern Pagan gives a good explanation of what we casual Christians have lost sight of.
The common meaning of sacrifice is “to give up.” We pour a libation, giving up the opportunity to drink the wine in order to give it to the gods…
The older meaning of sacrifice is “to make sacred.” By dedicating something to the gods through ritual and ceremony it becomes sacred – it takes on some of the essence of the gods. Some of that divine essence then returns to us…
I’m glad modern Pagans are talking about sacrifice. Whether we “give up” or “make sacred” or both, regular sacrifices will strengthen our relationships with our gods and goddesses, with our communities, and with the world at large.
This is consistent with Christian teaching that the sacrifice of Yahweh’s Dedicated Savior transfers the divine essence to us.
“Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.” (Joh 14:19-20)
“But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” (Joh 16:5-7)
“…ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:” (Act 1:8)
Consuming ritually prepared foods is a fast track to being bound to a god/devil.
“Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink…”(I Cor 10:7).
“…Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” (Dan 1:8)
“the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?” (I Cor 20:20-22).
Group participation in a meal in which the food or chemical substance has been dedicated to God or gods through ritual sacrifice or prayers joins all the consumers to the spiritual source of power, and to each other. Virtually all religions forbid non-members to participate in these meals or ceremonies because they are not worthy of being blessed by the sacred presence.
“For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.” (I Cor 11:29)
Proving that the newly converted Gentile believers in Yeshua were worthy is why it was so important for Peter to eat with them. His failure to do so was a public statement that they were not full converts, but at the most only initiates, who had to take further steps, such a circumcision, before they could become full-fledged members of this particular mystery cult promising to share the secrets to attaining resurrection to eternal life.
“And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision [a subset of Jewish believers in Yeshua as Messiah who insisted that conversion to Judaism was required for salvation] contended with him, Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them. But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying… the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common...Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Adonai Yeshua Messiah/ Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.” (Act 12:1-18)
The religious connotation of this word abomination is set in stone by Moses when he refers to the intended sacrifice by the Israelites as the abomination of the Egyptians.
“And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land. And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the Lord our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?” (Ex 8:25-26)
What is Moses saying here? One scholarly source interprets the abomination as the act of sacrificing an animal that was sacred to Egyptians. However, the biblical text states that the abomination is the animal itself. This was a lamb. Bear in mind that “lamb” does not define a cute poodle-y little thing you can cuddle in your arms. The official term “lamb” defines a male sheep in the first year, which for sheep is up to full grown. For the Israelites, the sheep represented and temporarily substituted for the Lamb of God, the “seed of the woman” promised to all humanity since the beginning of time.
“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” (Joh 1:29)
“For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things…For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God…He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Yahweh’s Consecrated Savior/Jesus Christ once for all.” (Heb 10:1-10)
For the Egyptians, the sheep represented Khnum, one of the principal and oldest gods of Egypt, worshipped as the creator of mankind. Pop quiz. Who is this god imitating? The Lamb of God! This makes him…the antithesis of The Promised One/ Messiah / Christ, AKA antichrist, one of the many different cultural representations of the seed of the serpent. So is Moses so bold as to call Pharaoh’s god disgusting to Pharaoh’s face? Hardly. If anything, Moses is acknowledging that the Egyptians, like many other groups, find the Israelite’s God abhorrent! In case you hadn’t noticed, there was an ongoing battle of the religious systems between Moses and Pharoah.
- “And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh [who was himself considered a god, the incarnation of Horus, the son in the Egyptian trinity and absolutely the anti-christ]: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet…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…
- …and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments…
- And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt. And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt... [Can you diagnose Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder? The self-destructive components are why it is diagnosed as a disorder.]
- Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not [or would not? Maybe self-preservation is beginning to kick in.]: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast. Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God…” (Ex 7:1-8:19)
A major difference between the religions is that the representative of the God of Israel was sacrificed to save the lives and well-being of his people, while the representative of the god of Egypt – Pharoah – demanded sacrifices of his people to maintain his life and status. I think that one reason it is so hard for people to place their faith in the Lamb of God is because his claims are so unbelievable in light of the little experience we humans have of sacrificial love. A god who offers benefits in exchange for sacrifices made to him is so much easier to trust to come through on, at least some of, his promises, even when he is not 100% faithful.
But there is a far more significant meaning to abomination than simply disgusting / toebah or even profaning the sacred that I expect both Pharaoh and Moses, raised in the royal household, understood and accepted at face value. No disrespect intended, none taken, just a fact. When abomination is translated from the Hebrew word Shiqqutẓ it has a very proscribed meaning. In each of its 28 occurrences it refers to manifestations of the gods in physical form, and invariably involves sex. The following passage is just one example.
“So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart…But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites: Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods. And the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,” (I Ki 10:23-24, 11:1-9)
“Thus saith the Lord God; Are ye polluted after the manner of your fathers? and commit ye whoredom after their abominations? For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day:” (Eze 20:30-31)
Notice the hybrid features of the Canaanite gods. Likewise, most of the Egyptian gods were also represented as combination animal and human.
Khnum was not represented simply by the sheep that the Israelites were planning to sacrifice. His image was a combination sheep and human. (Fourth from the left in the image above.) Are these god portrayed in this way because the original artists were attempting to portray abstract concepts like fertility, as interpreted by determinedly materialistic modern anthropologists doing their best to eliminate spirituality from history? Or was it something more concrete?
Could these images actually represent chimeras – individuals who truly, biologically, are a mixture of two genetically distinct types of cells? An indication that this might be the case is reported in numerous myths and by many secular historians.
The Egyptians were known to practice zoophilia. Were they inviting the spirits of the gods into familiar bodies?
For owing to these three things came the flood upon the earth, namely, owing to the fornication wherein the Watchers against the law of their ordinances went a whoring after the daughters of men, and took themselves wives of all which they chose: and they made the beginning of uncleanness. And they begat sons the Naphidim, and they were all unlike, and they devoured one another: and the Giants slew the Naphil, and the Naphil slew the Eljo, and the Eljo mankind, and one man another. And every one sold himself to work iniquity and to shed much blood, and the earth was filled with iniquity. And after this they sinned against the beasts and birds, and all that moves and walks on the earth: and much blood was shed on the earth, and every imagination and desire of men imagined vanity and evil continually. (Jubilees 7:21-24)
The amatory adventures of the Roman gods under the outward semblance of animalscannot but be regarded with the suspicion that an undercurrent of truth runs through the fable, when the general laxity of morals of that age is taken into account. Jupiter enjoyed Europa under the form of a bull; Asterie, whom he afterwards changed into a quail, he ravished under the shape of an eagle; and Leda lent herself to his embraces whilst he was disguised as a swan. He changed himself into a speckled serpent to have connection with Deois (Proserpine). As a satyr (half man, half goat), he impregnated Antiope with twin offspring. He changed himself into fire, or, according to some, into an eagle, to seduce Aegina; under the semblance of a shower of gold he deceived Danaë; in the shape of her husband Amphitryon he begat Hercules on Alcmene; as a shepherd he lay with Mnemosyne; and as a cloud embraced Io, whom he afterwards changed into a cow. Neptune, transformed into a fierce bull, raped Canace; he changed Theophane into a sheep and himself into a ram, and begat on her the ram with the golden fleece. As a horse he had connection with the goddess Ceres, who bore to him the steed Arion. He lay with Medusa (who, according to some, was the mother of the horse Pegasus by him) under the form of a bird; and with Melantho, as a dolphin. As the river Enipeus he committed violence upon Iphimedeia, and by her was the father of the giants Otus and Ephialtes. Saturn begat the centaur (half man, half horse) Chiron on Phillyra whilst he assumed the appearance of a horse; Phoebus wore the wings of a hawk at one time, at another the skin of a lion. Liber deceived Erigone in a fictitious bunch of grapes, and many more examples could be added to the list.
According to Pliny, Semiramis [incestuous mother/wife of Nimrod and “Mother of Harlots” who instituted what became world-wide paganism at Babylon] prostituted herself to her horse; and Herodotus speaks of a goat having indecent and public communication with an Egyptian woman. Strabo and Plutarch both confirm this statement. The punishment of bestiality set out in Leviticus shows that the vice was practised by both sexes amongst the Jews. Pausanius mentions Aristodama, the mother of Aratus, as having had intercourse with a serpent, and the mother of the great Scipio was said to have conceived by a serpent. Such was the case also with Olympias, the mother of Alexander, who was taught by her that he was a God, and who in return deified her. Venette says that there is nothing more common in Egypt than that young women have intercourse with bucks [male sheep and goats]. Plutarch mentions the case of a woman who submitted to a crocodile; and Sonnini also states that Egyptians were known to have connection with the female crocodile. Vergil refers to bestiality with goats. Plutarch quotes two examples of men having offspring, the one by a she-ass, the other by a mare. Antique monuments representing men copulating with goats (caprae) bear striking testimony to the historian’s veracity; and the Chinese are notorious for their misuse of ducks and geese.
Hani Miletski argues that the abundance of information from around the world leaves no doubt that bestiality has been an “integral part of human life” since the dawn of civilization…Cave drawings from the stone age…Paintings and carvings of human-animal sexual acts in ancient religious temples…
Bestiality was practiced in Babylonia, the ancient Empire in Mesopotamia…during the Spring Fertility Rites of Babylon, dogs and other animals were used for constant orgy for seven days and seven nights. The Book of Leviticus describes bestiality as being very widespread in the country of Canaan, which is perhaps why Hebrews later considered sexual relations with animals a way of worshipping other gods (similar to homosexuality) and put the bestialist and animal to death…
Ancient Greeks and Ancient Egyptians both incorporated bestiality into their religious practices. Ancient Egyptians engaged in “worshipful bestiality” with the Apis bull in Memphis, Egypt, and with goats at the Temple of Mendes. Similarly, Ancient Greeks engaged in bestiality during religious celebrations and festivals…several Egyptian kings and queens had a reputation for engaging in bestiality, and Egyptian men were known to have sexual intercourse with cattle, other large domesticated animals, crocodiles, and goats…
Although bestiality was particularly widespread among the shepherds, Roman women were also known to keep snakes for sexual purposes. Bestiality flourished as a public spectacle in ancient Rome, where the rape of women (and sometimes men) by animals were used to amuse the audience at the Colosseum and Circus Maximus. Similar to Ancient Egyptian leaders, many Roman emperors and their wives were known to engage in bestiality or to enjoy watching others engage in bestiality, including Emperor Tiberius and his wife Julia, Claudius, Nero, Constantine the Great, Theodora, and Empress Irene…
Arab men believed that intercourse with animals increased virility, cured diseases, and enlarged their penises. Likewise, among the Muslims in Morocco, fathers encouraged sons to practice sexual intercourse with donkeys to make their penises grow. Some nomad tribes in Africa incorporated intercourse with cattle as a ritual of passage for young males. Adolescent males in Ibo (Nigerian tribe), for example, had to “successfully” copulate with specially selected sheep in front of a circle of elders. Among other tribes, it was custom for hunters to engage in sexual acts with freshly slain animals while they were still warm. This custom was seen among the Yoruba (tribe in Nigeria), Plains Indians, the Canadian Indian tribe of the Saulteaux, and the Crow Indians. As for the Native Americans and Eskimos, bestiality varied from tribe to tribe, but was largely socially acceptable and went unpunished among Navajo Indians, Crow Indians, Hopi Indians, Sioux, Apache, Plains Indians, the Canadian Indian tribe of the Saulteaux, as well as the Kupfer and Copper Eskimos.
There is a lot of room for speculation in the genetic discovery of the shared DNA between humans and animals. Not just the well known human – chimp so-called evolutionary link but between humans and “unclean” pigs.
Pigs share a number of surprising comparable traits with humans. For instance, we both have hairless skin, a thick layer of subcutaneous fat, light-colored eyes, protruding noses and heavy eyelashes. Pig skin tissues and heart valves can be used in medicine because of their compatibility with the human body.
Angels / gods in animal form are actually consistent with the limited information we have on God’s angels. We have already seen the connection between serpents/dragons and seraphim. Cherubim and other heavenly beings described with composite human-animal features bear such striking similarities to the mythical creatures in pagan religions that it is only reasonable to speculate that some of their kind were among the fallen angels, or that the fallen angels were trying to recreate certain types of spirit beings. In the following sketches of actual ancient carvings of cherubim, notice how the Assyrians, Babylonians and Syrians all depict them guarding the tree of life, just as described in Genesis 3, and also depict the same zoomorphic features described in both Ezekiel and Revelation – man, calf, eagle, and lion.
“…they had the hands of a man under their wings…the face of a man, and the face of a lion, and the face of an ox…also had the face of an eagle…This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar…they were the cherubims.” (Eze 1:10, 10:10-20)
“…and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts [i.e. unknown species of living creature, similar to but different from Ezekiel’s description of cherubim]…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…(Rev 4:6-8)
Popular media has saturated society with the belief that this is a wonderful addition to the world. In the context of war, of course. Some people, however, do realize the inherently unrealistic premise of powerful warriors selflessly serving the weak.
What is surfacing as we sift through the data is that the definition of an “abomination” is
- any hybrid that results from
- joining something material together with
- a hyper-dimensional being that
- enables the being to express itself in this four-dimensional realm.
This can be:
- Idols made of material substance which provide at the very least a focus of activity for spirits to engage with their worshippers, as well as functional “batteries” which hold and discharge the spirits’ power to the humans whose minds and spirits tap into them. Current R&D is feverishly working on an idol upgrade – freeing the idol from human constraints. This is popularly known as AI – intelligent androids capable of thought and self-directed action. “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that…many…should be killed.” (Rev 13:15)
- Hybrid living offspring produced through sexual intercourse and other means of cross-fertilization between species. This has become a reality in our day.
- Sacrifices which transfer the life in the blood to a god, in order to energize the manifestation of the god in the worshippers who are made sacred, fit vessels, for the spirit of the god.
- Human groups – religious, political, social, subcultures, trends and fads headed by the gods. Their objectives, whether public or secret, can be generally summed up as the annihilation of other groups of humanity by one means or another. This concept is graphically portrayed in the film aptly named Alien Covenant. Or we can just remember the actual history on which fiction is based.
This puts a different light on what is meant when Antiochus Epiphenes slaughtered a pig and set up a statue of Zeus/Satan in YHVH’s temple. The abomination is not just sacrificing the pig or just setting up the idol. The abomination is the manifestation of Zeus in the worshippers who are empowered to think his thoughts and do his will through an escalating process involving, in his case:
- the hybridization of material and spiritual in the idol, plus
- the use of an unclean animal in the process, plus
- the transfer of life energy through the shedding of blood in the sacrifice, plus
- the altered state of mind in the frenzied worshippers now opened to spirit possession.
This is confirmed by A Druid Fellowship, which explains that “Sacrifice is a two-way street. Not only do we offer to sustain the cosmos, but we can also use sacrifice to transfer the power of the universe into our own bodies.”
Tragically, the claims that humans can tap the power of the universe through collaboration with the gods to transform themselves for the purpose of making the world a better place is a lie. In reality, collaboration of humans with the hyper-dimensional gods allows the gods to transform their power into the four-dimensional realm for the purpose of making things desolate. Think of it like using an electric plug converter. The appliance (god) can’t be powered up without using a human for an adapter. But once the god is up and running it’s a chainsaw massacre. This concept is the logical climax of the historically-grounded Game of Throne series.
Desolation is often interpreted as the wrath of God. God does get angry, but first Satan vents his rage on humanity. Human collaboration with the gods is a Pandora’s box, or a Trojan horse, or whatever other ancient allegory comes to mind.
It is human collaboration with the gods that releases the gods’ forces of destruction on the humans. Just like the woman eating the fruit in the garden, or Jon Snow bringing the dragon to King’s Landing, we bring it on ourselves.
- “…he [Antiochus Epiphenes] shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant…
- and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and [they] shall take away the daily sacrifice,
- and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
- And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries.” (Daniel 11:30-32)
According to Yeshua’s prediction, this recurred in the First Jewish War just prior to the destruction of the temple in AD 70.
“And Yeshua/Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Yeshua/Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down… Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ / the Predicted Ruler to Come; and shall deceive many.” (Matt 24:1-5)
“When ye therefore shall see the abomination [hybrid physical manifestation of a god] of desolation [this is the objective of the abominable being – to destroy humanity] spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains…For then shall be great tribulation, [proving the point] such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be…For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders [empowered by spirit beings]; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Mat 25:15-24)
No Roman Caesar ever desecrated the Jerusalem temple like Antiochus Epiphenes did. However, one of many antichrists of that era, a Jewish warlord named Simon bar Giora, appears to have fulfilled Yeshua’s prophecy within the time frame of the First Jewish War.
Acclaimed by the people as their savior and guardian, Simon was admitted [to Jerusalem during the siege]. With fifteen thousand soldiers at hand Simon soon controlled the whole upper city and some of the lower city…Factions fought vigorously over the control of Jerusalem [massive amounts of bloodshed transferring life energy], always trying to destroy each other’s grain stores to starve each other into submission. This internal fighting later proved disastrous… [There you have it – desolation and great tribulation brought on by the collaboration of the people with the false savior messiah.] Nevertheless, of the leaders of the rebellion, Simon in particular was regarded with reverence and awe. By his authority, coins were minted declaring the redemption of Zion… [When] Jerusalem fell to Titus…Simon…tried to dig a way to freedom, but ran out of food before he could finish. Clothed in the garments of a Judean king he rose out of the ground at the very spot where the Temple had stood.”
And there you have it. The abomination that causes desolation. Simon was treated as the king he represented himself to be, taken to Rome as a spoil of war, paraded naked in the Triumph, and executed. A Roman coin was minted to commemorate that event – the desolation.
It is estimated that as many as one million Jews died in the Great Revolt against Rome. When people today speak of the almost two-thousand-year span of Jewish homelessness and exile, they are dating it from the failure of the revolt and the destruction of the Temple. Indeed, the Great Revolt of 66-70, followed some sixty years later by the Bar Kokhba revolt, were the greatest calamities in Jewish history prior to the Holocaust. In addition to the more than one million Jews killed, these failed rebellions led to the total loss of Jewish political authority in Israel until 1948. This loss in itself exacerbated the magnitude of later Jewish catastrophes, since it precluded Israel from being used as a refuge for the large numbers of Jews fleeing persecutions elsewhere.
Understanding the fallen angels’ power play in hybridizing spirit/human beings to take control of the world should bring us to a deeper understanding of what God is doing when he energizes us with his spirit. We are not simply empowered to have eternal life. We are empowered to reclaim our place as masters of the universe!
“But as many as received him [Yeshua / YHVH’s Promised Savior], to them gave he power to become the sons of God.” (Joh 1:12)
But we need to be plugged into our power source to counter the forces of destruction at work in our world. At the very least, at work in the lives of those we love.
“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (I Joh 4:3-4)
Climax of the Alien Invasion of Earth
Open involvement of fallen angels / gods / aliens with human society is the most significant way in which the days of the Son of Man are like the days of Noah. This happens by a takeover of the highest levels of government and by integration into the general population by the “fallen ones”, nephilim, manifested in two different ways.
- Physical and psychological control of humans through hybrid overlords, whose angel genes have been preserved through generations of inbreeding.
- Spiritual control of human hosts by the evil spirits of the deceased hybrid offspring of angels.
Demon-controlled humans destroy their own bodies, their families, and society through excesses of perverted sexual behaviors.
Black Death — bubonic plague — wiped out a third of Europe’s population in six terrible years. Over the next century [that is, 100 years keep in mind], it killed [a total of] 40 million people as it spread across the globe.
AIDS soon will rank as mankind’s greatest scourge. And while 14th-century medicine had nothing to offer plague victims, 21st-century modern medicine does, but it doesn’t get to 95% of people with AIDS…”A total of 65 million people will have died of AIDS over 15 years. The Black Death happened 700 years ago when science was negligible. Yet despite our modern technology, today we have a disease that is killing a vast number of people. The diseases are similar because of the vast scope of death, the destruction of families, and the destruction of the economies of nations.”
What’s the worst form of terrorism on earth? About 3,000 people died in the Sept. 11 attacks. Every day, about 8,000 people die of AIDS.
The Book of Enoch frankly states that judgment was brought down because ”fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways”, and expands on the biblical account that technologies brought by the fallen angels/gods escalated the slaughter and genetic corruption so rapidly that humankind was almost wiped out.
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them…I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die…were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.” (Gen 6:12-17, 7:11-12)
Tragically, despite the memories preserved throughout the world’s civilizations, people still refuse to believe.
“…there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” (II Pet 3:3-7)
“For as the lightening, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of his generation. 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, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” (Lu 17:24-30)
In the next post we’ll track how humanity recovered from the greatest extinction event in human history.
The Bible documents a fair and just process of judging all humanity from all time by the same standards. This included providing the same means of redemption from sin and death through his Appointed Savior, who is identified with all humanity as much as the first man / ha-adam.
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” (I Corinthians 15:21-22)
Contemporary Christianity has hyper-focused on the
“Thinkest thou this, O man…that thou shalt escape the judgment of God…not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; who will render to every man according to his deeds…glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: for there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law [of God], do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Yahweh’s Chosen Savior / Yeshua Messiah / Jesus Christ according to my gospel.” (Romans 2:3-16)
