Just like a succession of American leaders take on their predecessor’s title / name of “Mr. President”, the first generations of pagan gods took over the roles / titles. ergo names of their predecessors. This makes it difficult to decipher Whose Who in the myths. The best way to track their individuality is through their first appearance within a timeline.
This system correlates Lucifer, the first angelic son of God with the Sumerian god Enki, one of the first two sons of God. The Greeks called this same god Cronus, and provide an expanded account of his rebellion against God, recognized in the destructive nights of Creation week and in his presumption of fatherhood by cloning sons, including Zeus.
In the likeness of his father, Zeus led the Titanomachy rebellion which ended with the imprisonment of Cronus/Lucifer and takeover by Zeus of his father’s role including his self-appointed title which in Sumerian is Enki – Lord Earth. Since Lucifer was imprisoned for leading the human woman into death, this allows us to place this event on a biblical timeline and correlate Zeus / Enki with Satan. On a secular timeline, it is significant that Enki is a Sumerian name.
Sumerian is a language isolate, meaning no other language on earth can be traced to or from Sumerian. The oldest archeological finds of written Sumerian, called the Archaic for its crude style, is dated about 3100 – 2500 BCE. This correlates timewise with the arrival of the fallen angels on earth in the days of Jared, as documented in the Book of Enoch. Jared’s son.
It also correlates with the role of the fallen angels as rulers. “The earliest Sumerian writing is almost exclusively represented by texts of business and administrative character” i.e. for governing, especially taxing and corralling labor forces for the monumental building projects such as the pyramids. From this fact we can deduce that the Sumerian language was used by the overlord angels and their human minions. This is supported by the fact that the Classical period of Sumerian cuneiform texts starting about 2500 BCE but ending shortly after about 2300 BCE, the biblical date of Noah’s Flood, when all the fallen angels on earth were wiped out. Sumerian as an ancient language, like Latin by the medical profession, continued to be used by only a small sect of mystics in Mesopotamia, most probably as the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans, but interestingly, around the time of Christ, all knowledge of the Sumerian language disappeared. It was not unearthed until the early 19th century with the rise of the pursuit of archeology.
The god Ea is first mentioned in the Pre-Sargonic era, which from a biblical timeline is still prior to the Flood, but in contrast to Enki’s Sumerian name the name Ea arises from one of the Semitic languages such as Aramaic or Hebrew.
This is an important clue.
Just like “Jesus” is recognized as a righteous individual first appearing about 30 AD in the Christian era, and “Gaia” is recognized as a pagan entity appearing at the beginning of time, so “Ea” as a Semitic name of that era can be recognized as a righteous individual in contrast to the Sumerian Enki.
This deduction is supported by “the original meaning of the name…“the Living one (as a deity).”
From a biblical perspective, this corresponds to Adam’s survival from death by the mercies of God, his triumph over death by physical transformation to mortality rather than the soul’s isolation underground such as experienced by Lucifer “in the day that thou eatest” the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 2:17) via death. This contrasted starkly with God’s immutable death sentence on Lucifer who was locked up underground.
In addition, as detailed in the post Death Is A Process, Adam was bestowed a form of immortality by procreation of sons carrying on his image in his physical DNA and his likeness in his spiritual legacy. Adam’s first son Abel once again triumphed over death when Satan’s henchman Cain, killed him, because Abel was accepted by God, and “he being dead yet speaketh“. Then the Adams produced another child Seth.
Satan, calling himself Enki / Lord Earth in rivalry with Adam, produced his own rival Ea / “Living One as a deity”. This being governed the arts of sorcery and incantation as “the way” to achieve union with the gods to access power and some form of life after the death of the body.
Ea was originally a local deity worshiped in the city of Eridu, reputedly the first city in Mesopotamia, even predating the flood. This corresponds biblically in time to rebel Cain who was “of that wicked one” in spirit.
“And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain…builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch (Semitic)” (Genesis 4:16-17).
Cain is noted for building a number of cities during his long life. “In some, but not all, versions of the Sumerian King List, Eridu is the first of five cities where kingship was received before a flood came over the land.”
In the post-flood era Ea developed over time into a major Akkadian god, Lord of Apsu. In other words, he is syncretized with Enki / Lucifer and Satan as an intractable adversary of humanity. We all know about how the Serpent deceived Mrs. Adam in the Garden of Eden. The Sumerian religion tells us about another way in which Enki worked against Adam, called Enlil in Sumerian.
As a Son of God Enlil was the keeper of the Tablets of Destiny which contained the fates of gods and humanity. The Tablets of Destiny were considered an unstoppable force whose decisions could not be questioned.
The Tablets certainly correspond to the biblical books of judgment.
“I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.” (Daniel 7:9-10)
“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And 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. And the sea [of outer space] 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…And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:11-13)
But without the documented laws against which to compare and contrasts one’s behavior there can be no judgment.
“I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.” (Romans 7:7)
Could the Tablets of Destiny be Adam’s transcripts of God’s laws, capturing his exclusive interviews with God?
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Genesis 2:16-17)
Where did Job or Moses get their information if not from earlier accounts? Do you seriously think that the pagans documented their belief system and the worshippers of YHVH did not, or that Sumerian pagan tablets could survive the flood and God’s written word could not? Why would we think that God’s word was not written down until Job or Moses documented verbal history?
The following account by Enoch supports this logic, especially as it is validated by the biblical plan of salvation from death to eternal life.
Now, my son Mathusala, all these things I speak unto thee, and write for thee. To thee I have revealed all, and have given thee books of everything. Preserve, my son Mathusala, the books written by thy father; that thou mayest transmit them to future generations. Wisdom have I given to thee, to thy children, and thy posterity, that they may transmit to their children, for generations for ever, this wisdom in their thoughts; and that those who comprehend it may not slumber, but hear with their ears; that they may learn this wisdom, and be deemed worthy of eating this wholesome food / the tree of life. (Enoch 81)
“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” (Revelation 22:14)
From the earliest of recorded text the Tablets of Destiny were involved in the wars and conflicts of the Annu / rival sons of gods. Sumerian texts record that with the arrival of the Sons of Annu in the Valley between the two rivers, the very first object that was brought with them were two or more tablets of a shiny bronze like appearance that held immense power and knowledge. These tablets were fought over, lost, hidden and stolen many times.
In all of human history there has been only two sets of tablets that empower the fate of man. The tablets of the Ten Commandments and the Tablets of Destiny. Could it be that the Tablets of Destiny are the real power behind the Tablets that Moses returns with from Mount Sinai?
The tablets though were not from the valley of Sumer, and may not have originated from earth, but they have always been a part of the earth and mankind. What do they look like? In the Sumerian creation tablets…“Marduk took the tablets of Destiny…and sealed it and place it on his breast”. So the Tablets of Destiny are on the breast of Marduk.
From the ancient image of Marduk the Tablets of Destiny are clearly seen placed around his neck on his breast. His heavily designed overcoat and hat shows the motifs of the Tablets of Destiny. All this points to the fact that having ownership of the Tablets gives the owner a position of considerable power and importance.
In the context of rival religious systems, the Tablets of Destiny are the equivalent of the Israelite High Priest’s breastplate of judgment.
“And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt thou make it…And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod. And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the LORD continually. And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron’s heart, when he goeth in before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually.” (Exodus 28: 15-30)
With the possession of the Tablets of Destiny your military prowess was increased, and this fact often brought victory to the holder.
That sounds familiar.
“At that time the LORD said unto me [Moses], Hew thee two tables of stone…and make thee an ark of wood. And I will write on the tables…and thou shalt put them in the ark…And he wrote on the tables…the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me. And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me. (Deuteronomy 10:1-5)
“And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.” (Joshua 6:1-6)
“And the Philistines put themselves in array against Israel: and when they joined battle, Israel was smitten before the Philistines…the elders of Israel said…Let us fetch the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of Shiloh unto us, that, when it cometh among us, it may save us out of the hand of our enemies…And when the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout, so that the earth rang again. And when the Philistines…understood that the ark of the LORD was come into the camp…the Philistines were afraid, for they said, God is come into the camp. And they said, Woe unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore. Woe unto us! who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty Gods? these are the Gods that smote the Egyptians with all the plagues in the wilderness. Be strong and quit yourselves like men, O ye Philistines, that ye be not servants unto the Hebrews, as they have been to you: quit yourselves like men, and fight. And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen. And the ark of God was taken…
- And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod…into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon. And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD.
- And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again. And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the Lord; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him. Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon’s house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.
- But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof. They sent therefore and …carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither. And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the LORD was against the city with a very great destruction…
- So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there…and the cry of the city went up to heaven.” (I Samuel 4:2-11,5:1-12)
From a biblical perspective the Sumerians highjacked the true religion. The reason it appears that Moses plagiarized the earlier documents of the Sumerians is because the true believers were almost all wiped out and it took time and an act of God to build up a big enough community to re-establish the ancient way of life centered on YHVH.
