Ancient legends reveal many details of the high technology of ancient civilizations, especially as factions of the gods brought war down from heaven to earth. These are deemed nothing but imaginative myths by the same intellectuals who dismiss the biblical record of ancient history, but there is much to be learned from these records
The Roman / Greek gods are the ones with which we are most familiar in Western culture, but they are derivatives of the most ancient Mesopotamian gods. Its most ancient mythology, the Enuma Elish, affords us a glimpse of the beginning of humanity’s contact with these beings from outer space in the era before the flood.
Greek mythology recounts that Cronus / Saturn / Lucifer rebelled against Creator God. Lucifer’s asexually produced, cloned seed / son Zeus / Jupiter / Satan leads a rebellion against Cronus and his generation of gods, called the Titans, in the Titanomachy, and Cronus / Lucifer was imprisoned in Tartarus.
Thus begins the reign of the Olympian gods. These gods interacted openly with humans.
The Enuma Elish fleshes out with vivid descriptions the sparse biblical record of the gods producing terrifying creatures for war.
- “Dead things [think vampires, having no connection to the source of life but not inactive] are formed from under the waters [sea of outer space], 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!’
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.
“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon…And his tail drew [forced away] the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast [throw away, discard] them to the earth…And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Revelation 12:3-9)
The above passage is commonly taught as the Dragon luring 1/3 of the righteous angels into following him. However, by maintaining internal consistency in the definition of the word cast, rather than arbitrarily attributing meaning to the use of the tail in the action, we should understand that the report of angels being cast to earth indicates a conquest rather than a following.
Satan is very powerful.
“Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The LORD rebuke thee.” (Jude 9)
What that argument was all about makes for fascinating investigation, but for later.
For now, we have to recognize that wars do not consist of simply “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.
Bear in mind, the fallen angels, disconnected from the Singularity source of energy, have to renew their own energy and obtain resources for procreation from other sources of life. Just like us humans.
God’s strategy of clearing the battlefield by letting the wicked rebels fight it out amongst themselves has worked more than once.
In the same plot popularized by the movie Men in Black, certain factions of aliens agree to submit 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, Lucifer, mimics Creator God’s actions through the Son of God.
Ea [Lucifer, the Dragon/Serpent] called Marduk [Zeus, his cloned son mushushu dragon] 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.
“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.” (Hebrews 1:1-3)
As a clone, Marduk is the express image of the original Dragon, including his legs.
What I may bring into being shall be unchangeable; Neither dismissed nor replaced shall be the command of my lips!”
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11)
[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!
They erected for him an ample throne. Facing his fathers [his elders, the assembly of wise men], he sat down, presiding [while his ministers / servants all stood in attendance.]
To fully understand what is happening in this reference to sitting, we can catch a glimpse of the practice of honoring a ruler. In Mark Twain’s The Prince and the Pauper, he prince’s rescuer is granted the exceptional privilege of sitting in his presence. Before anyone can do anything about this “disrespect,” the king affirms that Miles Hendon does indeed have the right to sit in the king’s presence.
The practice of honoring the ruler by standing in his presence persists in our egalitarian society by “All rise!” when the judge is standing as he enters or leaves the courtroom.
This practice derives from the Most High God in heaven.
“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 [a grant from the father] obtained a more excellent name / title with its prerogatives than they.” (Hebrews 1:3-4)
“I will exalt my throne above the stars of God! I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation!…I will be like the most High!” (Isaiah 14:13-14)
“You, Marduk are the most honored of the great gods, Your decree is unrivaled, your word is Anu / Ani / Yahweh [i.e. equal in power and guaranteed to come to pass as that of the Creator]. 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;” (Revelation 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 [construction, clone] of the beast should be killed.” (Revelation 13:15)]
At this time in history, the adversaries were the other angels who reject Marduk’s leadership, which by Marduk’s definition, is “evil”.
…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 in outer space. 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” (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 / 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 emotional 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.
As an immortal being, the only way that an angel / alien could have their life “blotted out” would be to have its spirit / energy completely absorbed by its adversary.
“shall hate the whore…shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” (Revelation 17:16)
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. Encircled 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 / Destiny…Sealed them with a seal [to preserve them in order 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 / Lucifer’s desire had achieved.
Those who gather enough collateral information to judge any single source’s reliability and validity can recognize the Serpent’s propaganda in the Sumerian account of the battle against Tiamat.
Marduk, the Seed of the Serpent, Satan, undoubtedly has his victorious battles against other power-hungry rebels, but it is not by him but by the World 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 in this incident report as it might be related in a court of law:
- YHVH laid the foundations of the earth when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy.
- YHVH 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
- YHVH 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)
