MY FATHER COMES TO VISIT
A DREAM AND PROPHECY
My Hope Is Built On
5-30-99 - DREAM - I was in the livingroom of a house where I lived. My Father was acting like he wanted to talk to me, but I was equally busy trying to avoid talking to him.
I had to go to the bathroom and found Joe sitting in a darkened room like a bathroom, but was sitting at a desk like a makeup counter with a large mirror on it. Joe was sitting there with his forehead up against the mirror, not really looking into the mirror, but thinking to himself.
I went up to him to talk to him and he had a really pained look on his face. I said, "What's the matter, are you in pain?" He answered, "Yes!" I said, "Where is the pain?" He turned towards me and said, "We should probably talk about this later!" I said, "Is it about us?" He answered, "In a way!"
I was truely distressed but he didn't want to talk about it right then, so I went back to the livingroom with my heart strings being pulled out of my heart. I was thinking about Joe and that something was wrong between us but I couldn't think what it could be.
I tried to make myself feel better by looking in my purse which was full of coins and candy, mostly candy kisses wrapped in colorful papers.
My Father came into the room then, and I tried to avoid talking to him by playing with my candy in my purse.
My Father lay down on the couch next to me. I had never seen him look so old as he did right then. He said, "We have to talk!"
I did't want to. I had always avoided talking to him whenever possible.
He lay there on the couch and began to tell me his troubles. He said, "When I walk down the street, people avoid me. People act like they don't like me. Even my own family avoids me."
I was thinking, "We were always afraid of you," but I didn't say anything. But to hear him talk like this was breaking my heart.
He went on talking. "I've never done anything to these people, yet they go out of their way to avoid me. They don't even know me and they act like they don't like me."
I was looking at this old, old, man who was my Father and he seemed to be aging in front of my face, and his words were tearing my heart out.
All of a sudden we were in the back seat of a car. A blonde woman was driving from the right front seat like the postmen do. The steering wheel was a gold brown spoked wheel and was in the center of the front so it could be steered from either side, kind of like a boat.
We were headed home I thought. We came over the brink of the last hill going westward and the sight was incredible. A long string of purple mountains was straight ahead with the sun shining on the snow capped peaks.
My heart soared at the beauty of God's creation. I looked up and overhead was a huge ominous black cloud, but right on the edge of it, the sky was a brilliant blue. It was so beautiful and I knew the sun would be shining any moment as soon as the black cloud finished passing over.
The car drove up on a causeway going westward toward the mountains. My father got out to talk to the engineer, the builder of the causeway, and I got out to walk on the causeway which was covered with a sand surface.
There was one workman on the causeway. He was trying to repair it. I saw some small potholes in the surface and the repairman would rush over to fill in the hole, but he had to use sand from another spot because there was no new sand to use. Meanwhile an eddy appeared like in water and the sand would shift, and the workman ran over to fill in the hole from another place. The sand kept on shifting.
I turned around and was trying to walk along the causeway back towards the East, trying to get back to where my Father was, trying to avoid walking in the holes which were appearing more and more frequently and close and closer together.
I heard my Father say to the engineer. "This causeway is made of 4 layers of some very unique materials."
Suddenly I had to avoid walking in a deep hole that appeared right in front of me. I looked down into the hole and it looked like the next layer down was made of big red potatoes. I managed to avoid stepping in the hole. The sand was sinking everywhere now.
I could now hear my Father speaking in my left ear. He said, "These are the signs of the end. The Himalayas will shorten and men will fight wars over oil for 3/4 of the year."
He said more, but I couldn't understand what he said because the causeway's top layer was sinking sand and I was trying not to fall in the holes. The one workman there to repair it couldn't keep up with it. He couldn't work fast enough or hard enough to do it all by himself.
The End of Dream
Painting of Potatoes
It is very obvious to me that the Joe and Father figures in this dream refer to my relationship to God, the creator. In this conversation with my Father, he tells me how he feels about how the people he has created are treating him. It is heartbreaking to think that the impersonal God we always thought about would have real feelings like we do and that his heart is breaking just like ours.
In the scene of the causeway made of sinking sand, it reminds me of the teaching of Jesus: Mathew 7:24-27 - "Therefore whosoever hearest these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: (25) And the rain descended, the the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock: (26) And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: (27) And the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it."
In the Old Testament, in Jeremiah 5:18:24 - (18) Nevertheless in those days, saith the Lord, I will not make a full end with you. (19) And it shall come to pass when he shall slay, Wherefore doeth the Lord our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers ina land that is not yours. (20) Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying, (21) "Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding, which have eyes, and see not: (22)"Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? (23) But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. (24) Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest."
In I Chronicles 26:12-18, is described the divisions of the lots in which the porters, even among the chief men, having wards against another, to minister in the house of the Lord.
In verse 16 it says, "To Shuppim and Hosah the lot came forth westward, with the gate Shallecheth (of Jerusalem) by the causeway of the going up, ward against ward. (17) Eastward were six Levites, northward four a day, southward four a day, and toward Asuppim two and two. (18) At Parbar westward, four at the causeway, and two at Parbar. (19) These are the divisions of the porters among the sons of Kore and among the sons of Merari.
On 7-11-97 I lay down to take a short nap in the afternoon, and in the twilight place between awake and sleep I had a vision:
"Read the book of Judah - Chapters 13 and 16"
After I got up I went to get my Bible and found that there is no book of Judah. So, I went on the computer and looked on the internet to look up references about the man named Judah. This is what I found:
ISAIAH CHAPTER 13 AND 16
A PROPHECY AGAINST BABYLON
13: 1: An oracle concerning Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw: (2): Raise a banner on a bare hilltop; shout to them, beckon to them to enter the gates of the nobles. (3): I have commanded my holy ones; I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath---those who rejoice in m triumph. (4): Listen, a noise on the mountains, like that of a great multitude! Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms, like the nations massing together! The Lord Almighty is mustering an army for war. (5): They come from faraway lands, from the ends of the heavens - the Lord and the weapons of his wrath - to destroy the whole country. (6): Wail, for the day of the Lord is near, it will come like destruction from the Almighty. (7): Because of this, all hands will go limp, every man's heart will melt. (8): Terror will seize them, pain and anguish will grip them, they will writhe like a woman in labor. They will look aghast at each other, their faces aflame. (9): See, the day of the Lord is coming - a cruel day, wtih wrath and fierce anger - to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it. (10): The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give it's light. (11): I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless. (12): I will make man scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir. (13): Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the Lord Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. (14): Like a hunted gazelle, like sheep without a shepherd, each will return to his own people, each will flee to his native land. (15): Whoever is captured will be thrust through, all who are caught will fall by the sword. (16): Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives ravished. (17): See, I will stir up against them the Medes, who do not care for silver and have no delight in gold. (18). Their bows will strike down the young men; they will have no mercy on infants nor will they look with compassion on children. (19): Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the glory of the Babylonians' pride, will be overthrown by God like Sodom and Gomorrah. (20): She will never be inhabited or lived in through all generations, no Arab will pitch his tent there, no shepherd will rest his flocks there. (21): But desert creatures will be there, jackals will fill her houses; there the owls will dwell, and there the wild goats will leap about. (22): Hyenas will howl in her strongholds, jackals in her luxurious palaces. Her time is at hand, and her days will not be prolonged.
CHAPTER 16 (1): Send lambs as tribute to the ruler of the land, from Sela, across the desert, to the mount of the Daughter of Zion. (2): Like fluttering birds pushed from the nest, so are the women of Moab at the fords of the Arnon. (3): Give us counsel, render a decision. Make your shadow like night - at high noon. Hide the fugitives, do not betray the refugees. (4): let the Moabite fugitives stay with you, be their shelter from the destroyer. The oppressor will come to an end, and destruction will cease; the aggressor will vanish from the land. (5): In love a throne will be established, in faithfulness a man will sit on it - one from the house of David - one who in judging seeks justice and speeds the cause of righteousness. (6): We have heard of Moab's pride- her overweening pride and conceit, her pride and her insolence - but her boasts are empty. (7): Therefore the Moabites wail, they wail together for Moab. Lament and grieve for the men of Kir Haneseth. (8): The fields of Heshbon wither, the vines of Sibmah also. The rulers of the nations have trampled down the choiced vines, which once reached Jazer and spread toward the desert. Their shoots spread out and went as far as the sea. (9): So I weep, as Jazer weeps, for the vines of Sibmah. O Heshbon, O Elealeh, I drench you with tears! The shouts of joy over your ripened fruit and over your harvests have been stilled. (10): Joy and gladness are taken away from the orchards, no one sings or shouts in the vineyards; no one treads out wine at the presses, for I have put an end to the shouting. (11): My heart laments for Moab like a harp, my inmost being for Kir Hareseth. (12): When Moab appears at her high place, she only wears herself out; when she goes to her shrine to pray, it is to no avail. (13): This is the word the Lord has already spoken concerning Moab. (14): But now the Lord says: "Within three years, as a servant bound by contract would count them, Moab's splendor and all her many people will be despised, and her survivors will be very few and feeble."

In the Book of Haggai, the Lord tells Zerubbabel that he will make him as a signet ring.
(1:1) In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, (1:2) Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD's house should be built. (1:3) Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, (1:4)Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your ceiled houses, and this house lie waste? (1:5) Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. (1:6) Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. (1:7) Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. (1:8) Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD. (1:9) Ye looked for much, and, lo it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house. (1:10) Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit. (1:11) And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands. (1:12) Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the LORD. (1:13) Then spake Haggai the LORD's messenger in the LORD's message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the LORD. (1:14) And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God, (1:15) In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.
(2:1 ) In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying, (2:2) Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying, (2:3) Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing? (2:4) Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts: (2:5) According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. (2:6) For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; (2:7) And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. (2:8) The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. (2:9) The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts. (2:10) In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, (2:11) Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying, (2:12) If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No. (2:13) Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean. (2:14) Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the LORD; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean. (2:15 )And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the LORD: (2:16) Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty. (2:17) I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the LORD. (2:18 ) Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD's temple was laid, consider it. (2:19 )Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you. (2:20) And again the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying, (2:21 )Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; (2:22 ) And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. (2:23 ) In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the LORD, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the LORD of hosts.

In the next book of the Old Testament, Zechariah, the Lord of hosts, which is an angel, prophecies to Zechariah how displeased he is with man, even those who were at ease, because by doing nothing, they helped forward the affliction. He shows him four horns. He asks the angel: (1:19) What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem, (20) And the Lord shewed me four carpenters, (21) Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it."
The Lord of Hosts, the angels continues to prophecy in Chapter 2 about Jerusalem, and says, (2:10) Sing and rejoice, O daughters of Zion: for , lo, I come and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord. (2:11) And many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people;; and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto thee. (2:12) And the Lord shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again."
In Chapter 3, The Lord talks about Joshua, (3:3) Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the Lord, (3:4) And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, said, 'Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with a change of raiment. (3:5) And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the Lord stood by. (3:6) And the angel of the Lord protested unto Joshua saying, (3:7) Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that sand by. (3:8) Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at; for, behold I will bring forth my servant, the BRANCH. (3:9) For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes; behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of Hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. (3:10) In that day, saith the Lord of Hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbor under the vine and under the fig tree."

In Chapter 4 The angel comes again and tell Zechariah about the two candlesticks and the seven oil lamps:
(4:1 ) And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep. (4:2 ) And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: (4:3 ) And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. (4:4 ) So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord? (4:5 ) Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. (4:6 ) Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
(And he tells him) (4:7 ) Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
(and continues) (4:8 ) Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, (4:9 ) The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. (4:10 ) For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth. (4:11 ) Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? (4:12 ) And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? (4:13 ) And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. (4:14 ) Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth.

In the book Black Elk Speaks by John G. Neihardt, Black Elk tells of the vision he had when he was 9 years old and had been in a coma for two weeks: "I was still on my bay horse, and once more I felt the riders of the west, the north, the east, the south, behind me in formation, as before, and we were going east. I looked ahead and saw the mountains there with rocks and forests upon them, and from the mountains flashed all colors upward to the heavens. Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world.* And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy.

* Black Elk said the mountain he stood upon in his vision was Harney Peak in the Black Hills. "But anywhere is the center of the world," he added.
According to William Bramley in "The Gods of Eden" , he states, "The idea that there is a spiritual reality to life is ageless. Some religions have held the belief for millennia that human bodies are mere puppets animated by spiritual beings. Often accompanying this tenet are doctrines concerning 'reincarnation' or an 'afterlife'. In the Christian religion, the word 'soul' has long been used to denote a spiritual entity which survives the death of the physical body."
The ancient wisdom about the truth of the spiritual life of the 'soul' and of the physical world has been infiltrated by countless false ideas, strange mystical beliefs and practices, incomprehensible symbolism, and erroneous scientific teachings. At the other end of the spectrum, a larger and larger group of people have denied totally the belief in a spiritual 'soul' or an afterlife, or a "God" whether small or large, and have taken on all responsibility for their lives on earth which they claim end with the death of the physical body.
Somewhere in all that is the 'truth' which is what we all seek. We believe that the truth is available in dreams and visions of each individual. Much of this 'truth' is rejected as 'just a dream' and laughed at among the people who would even acknowledge that 'truth' might come from such a method. Since dreams are symbolic and each person must analyze their own dreams to get at the ultimate truth, it is indeed difficult to sort through all that information to glean the ultimate truth from the symbolism.
Much information about the world of spirit has been given to us by people who have experienced "Near Death" in which their soul leaves the body, travels to a spirit world where they meet other spirit beings, some of which are their own deceased relatives, and other beings who glow with light and have great powers. Other people argue that it is just the mind slowing down and giving erroneous information that is the basis for those reports, but the fact that so much of this information is the same in so many cases tends to give it validity. Beyond that is the fact that these same people have experienced being out of their bodies in wrecked cars or in hospital emergency rooms, watching paramedics and doctors working on their bodies to stem blood loss and restart their hearts. All of these people who experience this "Near Death" come back completely changed in a wonderful and spiritual way.
Many people spend hours and hours of time deliberately attempting to achieve this state at will. And those people also have the same experiences of meeting spirits of deceased relatives, famous people, and spirits with glowing bodies, sometimes spirits which are total light without the physical shape of the human body.
Einstein was quoted as stating that we only use 15% of our brain's capacity, but many people more and more are accessing the part of the brain that is capable of great powers and able to access information that people without awareness don't even suspect is possible.
People have always questioned where the information comes from in young children which show great knowledge and abilities as early as age three and younger that they couldn't possibly have learned from anyone in their families, even those with parents who are of high intelligence.
In India and some other countries where there is the belief in past-lives and reincarnation, it has been shown that very young children, when encouraged, can name their parents from a previous life, tell the story of their own death in the previous life, and take their families to meet these people. Astonishingly, the information they have within their minds, cannot possibly have been gleaned through newspapers, television, or radio, and certainly not from family members who have to relationship to these other families where the child says is their family from a previous life.
From these various experiences, one has to at least take a second look at whether or not there is a spiritual realm, and ask where the truth is about these matters.
Great arguments between theologians and scientists for generations have been and still is about how old the earth is and when mankind was placed on this earth and by 'whom' or 'what' method. There are no fixed answers on this subject, though each side takes a firm stand on their own beliefs as being 'truth'. This argument alone has kept these two groups separate as one will say that you have to believe in one side or the other and there is no inbetween.
Somewhere in all the knowledge mankind has achieved in millennia is the 'truth'. Somewhere and in some method is the way to find the ultimate truth. We believe that that way is through dreams, which come down to us, not just from our own subconscious minds, but from the superconscious mind of the universe and the planet and from the spirit beings who have been in the physical body previously and from spirit beings who have never been in human bodies.
The one big question of all is 'who or what is God'. Is there just one God, or are their multiple gods. Certainly there are numerous people in each camp. It is just possible that both camps are right, that there is an Ultimate God who is nameless and formless and the source of all that we are, and that there are lesser gods who have great powers and have held sway over generations of human beings and have not been especially kind to those under their power.
In between the Ultimate God, the lesser gods, and human beings are groups of beings with great powers and abilities which for millennia we have called 'angels', and indeed there are angels who have never been in human bodies, but there is another group of beings who have been called angels who have gone back and forth between the human world both in and out of human bodies. In this age of enlightenment and awareness, we now call them 'aliens'. These aliens have been called "The Watchers", and "Elohim", the creator 'gods' who were the Annunakis from Sumerian texts and the "Nephilim" which were the giants told about in the Book of Genesis which are half human and half 'gods'. In Biblical texts we see the title of "Elohim' which is a plural term for the creator god which appears over 2,500 times in the Old Testament. They created the world through the will of Yahweh.
Even beginning Bible students see these verses in the Bible and question
Genesis 1:26-27- "And God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea , and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
How could the words 'us', and 'our' mean anything else than plural. If god is plural, that means there is more than one. Since belief in God is that of a creator of all that is, how could God create man in his image? Does God look like us? If we believe that God is the Elohim or the Watchers, he certainly does. Mankind has always believed that God looked like us and that man could talk directly to God and the angels. If the Elohim looked like us, who is Yahweh through whose will they worked? There is obviously a greater God who created the Creator Gods.
Yahweh, also called YHWH (Yod Hey Vod Hey) is one of the 72 sacred names of God, one of the Elohim present in the Garden of Eden. He speaks to them in a real physical voice. And they answer in real physical voices. In Genesis 2:16, God commanded Adam, "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:; (17) 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." In Genesis 3 the serpent makes an appearance, which the Bible tells us is a symbol of Satan, but is really another creator God. See: Revelation of the True Satan. The Bible tells us in Chapter 3:1- Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God made. And he said unto the woman, "Yea, hath God said, 'Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" (2) And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; (3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hat said, "Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, "Ye shall not surely die; (5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Thereby Eve ate of the tree in the midst of the garden and gave some to Adam also because it tasted good and they became as gods just as the serpent had said. They immediately knew they were naked and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons. They heard God walking in the garden and he called to them, (9) "Adam, Where art thou?" God questioned Adam and Eve why they were hiding, and how they knew they were naked, and asked them who told them they were naked. Eve, of course, blamed the serpent, and God immediately cursed the serpent and told him he would henceforth crawl on his belly and told Eve she would henceforth desire her husband, be subject onto her husband and bare her children in pain. In verse 22, God speaks to the other creator Gods, "And the Lord God said, 'Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth is hand, and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever; (23) Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken."
Yahweh was not a happy God. In Number 21:14, it references the book of the Wars of the Lord, which is missing from the Old Testament. Joshua 10:13 refers to the book of Jashar which is missing from the Old Testament. Both the book of Enoch and the book of Jashar are now available from many libraries and theological book stores, and I recommend them highly.
In a series of scholarly books by Zechariah Sitchin, we find that according to Sumerian history which is written on clay tablets, the epic of creation known as Enuma elish, which parallels the six 'days' of creation in the Bible. The supreme Deity Marduk surveyed his marvelous handiwork on the 'seventh day'. From various texts left behind by the Sumerians we find that a group of 50 ANNUNAKI which literally means "Those Who From Heaven to Earth Came", landed in the waters of the Persian Gulf or Arabian Sea and waded ashore under the leadership of E.A. ("He Whose House Is Water") established an extraterrestrial colony on Earth, calling it E.R.I.D.U. ("House in the Faraway Built") Other settlements followed as they went looking for gold, distilling it from the waters of the Persian Gulf. E.A. also had the title of EN.KI ("Lord of Earth"). The ANNUNAKI needed lots of gold, to send to the home planet called NIBIRU. The Half brother of E.A. came to earth to assist, sent by ANU, ("The Heavenly One") who ruled NIBIRU. The brother's name was EN.LIL ("Lord of the Command") He was a strict disciplinarian and a firm administrator. While E.A./EN.KI was in the south of Africa working the gold mines, EN.LIL took over the command of the seven Cities of Gods in the E.DIN ("Home of the Righteous Ones"). Each city had their own assigned specialities including the medical center under the supervision of NIN.MAH ("Great Lady") a half sister of both EN.KI and EN.LIL.
NIN.MAH also called MAMMI assisted EN.KI in the creation of man as half god...half man. When the ANNUNAKI first arrived on Earth, Adam (man as we know him) did not exist. The ANNUNAKI's worked the gold mines themselves and getting sick of doing all the work themselves mutinied. EN.LIL and EN.KI were of differing opinions of what to do to solve this problem, so they consulted with ANU. ANU sympathized with the mutineers. EN.KI, the scientist said, "Let us create a primitive Worker, that will take over the backbreaking toil." So they went out and found a hominid creature, the product of evolution on earth...in southeast Africa, "above the Abzu". All that was needed to make an intelligent worker, EN.KI added was to "Bind upon it the image of the gods." They gave the job to NIN.MAH who later was named NIN.TI ("Lady of Life"). Working in a laboratory called 'Bit Shimti' ("House where the wind of life is breathed in") the essence of the blood of a young ANNUNAKI male was mixed with the egg of a female hominid. The fertilized egg was then inserted into the womb of a female ANNUNAKI. When, after a tense waiting period, a "Model Man" was born, NIN.MAH held the newborn baby up and shouted, "I have created! My hands have made it!"
|In ancient Egypt, where the gods were called Neteru ("Guardians") and identified by the hieroglyphic symbol of a mining axe, the act of creating the first Man out of clay was attributed to the ram-headed god Khnemu ("He who joins") of whom the texts said that he was "the maker of men...the father who was in the beginning." Egyptian artists, as the Sumerian artists before them, depicted pictorially the moment of the First Encounter. It shows Khnemu holding up the newly created being, assisted by his son Thoth (the god of science and medicine). (Note the builder glyph on the stool Khnemu sits on)|
EN.KI (EA) supported mankind, whereas his brother, EN.LIL, wanted them destroyed. In 1991, a crop formation appeared with letter-like glyphs, with the circle with ring on each end, which represent the Deity. They called it, "The Milk Hill multiple agriglyph inscription." The first translation given was "P'tah Enki." P'tah was the Egyptian god of wisdom, and EN.KI (EA) was said to be the god who was the lover of mankind. So, the translation was, "The Creator, wise and loving." Interesting too, both P'tah and EN.KI (EA) did a lot of construction work, such as waterways. A symbol for P'tah, given in "The Sacred Symbols of Mu" is the right-angle square, the "builder" glyph spoken of in regard to the swastika.

|It has always been thought that this symbol originated in Egypt but it goes back thousands of years beyond the commencement of Egyptian history. The two sided square is a symbol which is constantly found in the Book of the Dead, also in various Egyptian papyri. All seats where either gods or goddesses are shown sitting are composed f the two-sided square. In the Great Hall of Truth where Osiris is shown sitting in judgment his seat is composed of the two-sided square.|
|The Great Hall of Truth or Judgment Seat of Osiris. Left to Right:
Osiris in judgment chair. A leopard skin, his banner. Four genii over closed
lotus flower, symbol of Mu. Great beast of Amenti. Thoth with Ibis head recording
history of the deceased. Anubis with jackal's head and Horus with hawk's
head weighing the heart in pair of scales against a feather. The deceased,
hands aloft exposing his heart, being led into the Hall of Truth by a feather
and being received by Maat, goddess of Truth. The bitch sits on top of the
balance scale...the accuser...later called Satan by the Christian church.
From the Egyptian "Book of the Dead".
The two sided square is on many Mexican tablets.
Mythology of peoples and nations over millennia have given us the names of 'gods' which they fully believe controlled their lives. In studying mythology, we find that while the names of 'god's of one people are different from another people, the stories of what these 'gods' did is the same or very similar, even when these people are far removed from each other.

The Book of Gods, Goddesses, Heroes and Other Characters of Mythology
In Zechariah Sitchin's "Divine Encounters" he tells us that according to the Egyptian priest Manetho, who had written down the history of Egypt when Alexander's Greeks arrived, in times immemorial "Gods of Heaven" came to Earth from the Celestial Disc. After a great flood had inundated Egypt, "a very great god who had come to Earth in the earliest times" raised the land from under the waters by ingenious damming, dyking, and land reclamation works. HIs name was Ptah, "The Developer", and hew a sa great scientist who had earlier had a hand in the creation of Man. He was often depicted with a staff that was graduated, very much like surveyor's rods nowadays. In time Ptah handed the rule over Egypt to his Firstborn son Ra ("The Bright One") who for all time remained head of the pantheon of Egyptian Gods.
The Egyptian terms for 'gods' was NTR ("Guardian Watcher") and the belief was that they had come to Egypt form TA.UR ("foreign/Far Land") That land was Shumer (Sumer) ("Land of the Guardians") Egypt's gods as the ANNUNAKI, Ptah as EA/EN.KI (whose Sumerian nickname NUDIMMUD, meant "The Artful Creator") and Ra as his Firstborn son Marduk.
Ra was followed on the divine throne of Egypt by four brother-sister couples, first his own children Shu ("Dryness") and Tefnut ("Moisture") and then by their children Geb ("Who piles Up the Earth") and Nut ("The Stretched-out Firmament of the Sky"). Geb and Nut then had four children; Asar ("The All Seeing") whom the Greeks called Osiris, who married his sister Ast, whom we know as Isis; and Seth ("The Southerner") who married his sister Nebt-hat, alias Nephtys. To keep the peace, Egypt was divided between Osiris (who was given Lower Egypt in the north) and Seth (who was assigned Upper Egypt in the south). But Seth deemed himself entitled to all of Egypt, and never accepted the division. Using Subterfuge, he managed to seize Osiris, cut up his body into fourteen pieces, and dispersed the pieces all over Egypt. But Isis managed to retrieve the pieces (all except for the phallus) and put together the mutilated body, thereby resurrecting the dead Osiris to life in the Other World.
And thus was born the belief that the king of Egypt, the Pharoah, if "put together' (mummified) like Osiris after death, could journey to join the gods in their abode, enter the secret Gates of Heaven, encounter there the great god Ra, and, if allowed to enter, enjoy an eternal Afterlife.
Also, we know that the gods could live eternally by eating a green plant grown in the ocean off the coast of Africa, and the ANNUNAKIs farmed this green plant and took it aboard their ship to keep themselves alive. However, once they created Man, who were only half god, half man, man did not have this ability to stay alive eternally in the physical body.

Giants before the Flood
Then the Elohim (Hebrew idiom of a plural of magnitude or majesty (Gen. 1:1), used of heathen gods, or of angels or judges as representatives of God, Elohim is plural in sense as well as form. It’s etymology, the most likely roots mean either "be strong," or "be in front," the power and preeminence of God; as to EL (Heb. ‘el, God) it is a generic word for God in the Semitic languages: Aramaic elah, Arabic ilah, Akkadian ilu. In the OT, el is used over two hundred times for God. El has a plural, elim, occasionally elhm in Ugaritic; but the Hebrews needed no plural, though a plural term, ‘elohim, was their regular name for God. The root from which ‘el was derived may have come from ‘wl, "to be strong"; from an Arabic root ‘ul, "to be infront of" as a leader from a Hebrew root ‘lh to which both ‘el and ‘elohim belonged, with the meaning "strong"; from the preposition el, "to be infront of"; and using the same prepositions, as putting forth the idea of God as the goal for which all men seek. A truly satisfactory theory is impossible, because ‘el and the other terms for God, ‘elohim and ‘eloha, are all prehistoric in origin.) make their return in Genesis 6:2, when the "sons of God" have intercourse with the "daughters of men," ..."and they took them wives of all which they chose." The results of this event beget Lamech (Heb. lemekh, meaning undetermined), father of Noah, based his faith on the promised deliverance from the Adamic curse of Gen. 3:14-19, he foresees, even if faintly, the coming of One of his seed (cf. 1 Chron. 1:3; Luke 3:36) who will remove that curse (cf. Rom. 8:18-25). Jared was Enochs' father, who through tradition dictated to his son about 5800 B.C. "The Lamentations of Jared" how Gods came to the earth and led astray his own tribe of Adam and those tribes of Cain also.
From Adam to Noah there were seven major Patriarchs born, Noah being the eighth person as shown in 2 Peter 2:5. Note that Cain and Abel are not counted for a total of ten, but Seth was the first.
Uta-Napishtim (Babylonian Noah) was the tenth King of Babylon before the Flood. The Sumerian King List mentions five cities existing before the Flood; Eridu, Bad-tinia, Larak, Sippar, and Shuruppak.
We find in studying tribes of Indians in remote areas of the world even today that they have stories of their gods and events in the past which match almost word for word to peoples on the opposite side of the world. These tribes have never contacted other human beings and had no possible means of receiving or transmitting this information from one to another except by word of mouth and through the dreams of the Shamans of their tribes.
In all cultures throughout time, the successful Shaman would impart a special dream to the people and the people would say, "Yes! We've been dreaming that too!" and the culture would change accordingly. In the Bible there are numerous reports of dreams of Kings which were told to the best dream analysts of the time and the running of the countries and even great wars fought over this information received in this manner.
In many cases, Kings and other people received visitations from 'angels'
We see in Zechariah Sitchin's book "Divine Encounters" in the chapters on Angels and Other Emissaries, that Jacob of the Bible had a dream which is told in the Bible's own words (Genesis Chapter 28)
|And Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Harran. And he reached
a certain place and went to sleep there, for the sun had set. And he took
of the stones of that place and put them to rest his head on, and he lay
down in that place.
And he dreamed, and beheld a ladder set up on the ground with its top reaching up to the sky. And behold angels of Elohim were going up and coming down it.
And behold, there was Yahweh standing upon it, and he spoke, saying, "I am Yahweh, the Elohim of Abraham thy ancestor and the Elohim of Isaac. The land upon which thou liest, to thee I will give it and to they seed. And thy seed shall be spread as dust on the ground, spreading west and east and northward and southward; and in thee and in they seed shall all the communities of the Earth be blessed. Behold, I am with thee; I will protect thee wherever thou goest, and I shall bring thee back to this land. I shall not abandon thee until I have done that which I am saying to you."
And Jacob awakened out of his sleep, and said, "Surely Yahweh is present in this place, and I knew it not."
And he was afraid, saying, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than an abode of Elohim, and this is the gateway to heaven!"
And Jacob got up early in the morning and took the stone that he had used as a pillow, and set it up as a pillar, and poured oil on it's top, and called the name of the place Beth-El.
In this Divine Encounter, in a nighttime vision, Jacob saw what, without doubt, we would nowadays call a UFO, except that to him, it was not unidentified; he well realized that its occupants or operators were divine beings, "angels of Elohim" and their Lord or commander none other than Yahweh himself, "standing upon it."
What he had witnessed left no doubt in his mind that the place was a "Gateway to Heaven" ...a place which the Elohim could rise skyward. The wording is akin to that applied to Babylon (Bab-Lli, "Gateway of the Elohim") where the incident of the launch tower (whose head shall reach to heaven" had taken place.
The commander identified himself to Jacob as "Yahweh, the Elohim" ...the DIN.GIR of Abraham thy forefather and the Elohim of Isaac." The operators of the "ladder" are identified as "Angels of Elohim" not simply as angels; and Jacob, realizing that he had unknowing stumbled upon a site used by these divine aeronauts, named the place Beth-El ("The House of El") , El being the singular of Elohim.
The Bible is careful to identify the subordinates of the deity as "Angels of Elohim" and not simply as "angels" because the Hebrew term Mal'akhim does not mean "angels" at all; it literally mean "emissaries"; and the term is employed in the bible for regular, flesh-and-blood human emissaries who carried royal rather than divine messages.
1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, when I was in the midst of the captives by the river Chobar, the heavens were opened, and I saw the visions of God.
2 On the fifth day of the month, the same was the fifth year of the captivity of king Joachin,
3 The word of the Lord came to Ezechiel the priest the son of Bud in the land of the Chaldeans, by the river Chobar: and the hand of the Lord was there upon him.
4 And I saw, and behold a whirlwind came out of the north: and a great cloud, and a fire infolding it, and brightness was about it: and out of the midst thereof, that is, out of the midst of the fire, as it were the resemblance of amber:
5 And in the midst thereof the likeness of four living creatures: and this was their appearance: there was the likeness of a man in them.
6 Every one had four faces, and every one four wings.
7 Their feet were straight feet, and the sole of their foot was like the sole of a calf's foot, and they sparkled like the appearance of glowing brass.
8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides: and they bad faces, and wings on the four sides,
9 And the wings of one were joined to the wings of another. They turned not when they went: but every one went straight forward.
10 And as for the likeness of their faces: there was the face of a man, and the face of a lion on the right side of all the four: and the face of an ox, on the left side of all the four: and the face of an eagle over all the four.
11 And their faces, and their wings were stretched upward: two wings of every one were joined, and two covered their bodies:
12 And every one of them went straight forward: whither the impulse of the spirit was to go, thither they went: and they turned not when they went.
13 And as for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like that of burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps. This was the vision running to and fro in the midst of the living creatures, a bright fire, and lightning going forth from the fire.
14 And the living creatures ran and returned like flashes of lightning.
15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, there appeared upon the earth by the living creatures one wheel with four faces.
16 And the appearance of the wheels, and the work of them was like the appearance of the sea: and the four had all one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the midst of a wheel.
17 When they went, they went by their four parts: and they turned not when they went.
18 The wheels had also a size, and a height, and a dreadful appearance: and the whole body was full of eyes round about all the four.
19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels also went together by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels also were lifted up with them.
20 Whithersoever the spirit went, thither as the spirit went the wheels also were lifted up withal, and followed it: for the spirit of life was in the wheels.
21 When those went these went, and when those stood these stood, and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels also were lifted up together, and followed them: for the spirit of life was in the wheels.
22 And over the heads of the living creatures was the likeness of the firmament, as the appearance of crystal terrible to behold, and stretched out over their heads above.
23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other, every one with two wings covered his body, and the other was covered in like manner.
24 And I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of many waters, as it were the voice of the most high God: when they walked, it was like the voice of a multitude, like the noise of an army, and when they stood, their wings were let down.
25 For when a voice came from above the firmament, that was over their heads, they stood, and let down their wings.
26 And above the firmament that was over their heads, was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of the sapphire stone, and upon the likeness of the throne, was a likeness as of the appearance of a man above upon it.
27 And I saw as it were the resemblance of amber as the appearance of fire within it round about: from his loins and upward, and from his loins downward, I saw as it were the resemblance of fire shining round about.
28 As the appearance of the rainbow when it is in a cloud on a rainy day: this was the appearance of the brightness round about.
According to Helena Blavatsky, the researches of Egyptologists present another corroboration of the identity of the Bible-allegories with those of the lands of the Pharaohs and Chaldeans. The dynastic chronology of the Egyptians, recorded by Herodotus, Manetho, Eratosthenes, diodorus Siculus, and accepted by our antiquarians, divided the period of Egyptian history under four general heads; the dominion of gods, demi-gods, heroes and mortal men. By combining the demi-gods and heroes into one class, Gunsen reduces the periods to three; the ruling gods, the demi-gods or heroes ...sons of gods, but born of mortal mothers...and the Manes, who were the ancestors of individual tribes. These sub-divisions, as anyone may perceive correspond perfectly with the Biblical Elohim, sons of God, giants and mortal Noachian men.
Diodorus of Sicily and Beosus give us the names of the twelve great gods who presided over the twelve months of the year and the twelve signs of the zodiac. These names, which include Nuah, are too well known to require repetition. The double-faced Janus was also at the head of twelve gods, and in the representations of him he is made to hold the keys to the celestial domains. All these having served as models for the Biblical patriarchs, have done still further service...especially Janus... by furnished copy to St. Peter and his twelve apostles, the former also double-faced in his denial, and also represented as holding the keys of Paradise.
This statement that the story of Noah is but another version in it's hidden meaning of the story of Adam and his three sons, gathers proof on every page of the book of Genesis. Adam is the prototype of Noah, Adam falls because he eats the forbidden fruit of celestial knowledge; representing abuse of knowledge in an unbalanced mind. Adam gets stripped of his spiritual envelope; Noah of his terrestrial clothing; and the nakedness of both makes them feel ashamed. The wickedness of Cain is repeated in Ham. But the descendants of both are shown as the wisest of races on earth; and they are called on this account 'snakes' and the 'sons of snakes', meaning sons of wisdom, and not of Satan, as some divines would be pleased to have the world understand the term. Enmity has been placed between the 'snake' and the 'woman' only in this mortal phenomenal 'world of man' as 'born of woman'. Before the carnal fall, the 'snake' was Ophis, the divine wisdom, which needed no matter to procreate men, humanity being utterly spiritual. Hence the war between the snake and the woman, or between spirit and matter. If, in its material aspect, the "old serpent" is matter, and represents Ophiomorphos, in it s spiritual meaning it become Ophis-Christos. In the magic of the old Syro-Chaldeans, both are conjoint in the zodiacal sign of the androgyne of Virgo-Scorpio, and may be divided or separated whenever needed. Thus as the origin of 'good and evil' the means of the S.S. and Z.Z. has always been interchangeable; and if upon some occasions the S.S. on sigils and talismans are suggestive of serpentine evil influence and denote a design of black magic upon others, the double S.S. are found on the sacramental cups of the Church and mean the presence of the Holy Ghost, or pure wisdom.
The Midianites were known, as the wise men, or sons of snakes, as well as Canaanites and Hamites; and such was the renown of the Midianites, that we find Moses, the prophet, led on and inspired by "the Lord" humbling himself before Hobab, the son of Raguel, the Midianite, and beseeching him to remain with the people of Israel: "Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp IN THE WILDERNESS; and thou mayest be to us instead of eyes." Further, when Moses sends spies to search out the land of Canaan, they bring as a proof of the wisdom (kabalistically speaking) and goodness of the land, a branch with one cluster of grapes, which they are compelled to bear between two men on a staff, they add: "We saw the children of Anak there." They are the giants, the sons of Anak, "which come of the giants" and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight"
Anak is Enoch, the patriarch, who dies not, and who is the first possessor of the "mirific name" according to the Kabala, and the ritual of Freemasonry.
The Bible contradicts itself here as well as the Chaldean account, for in Chapter VII of Genesis it shows "every one of them" perishing in the deluge.
Comparing the Biblical patriarchs with the descendants of Vaivaavata, the HIndu Hoah, and the old Sanskrit traditions about the deluge in the Brahmanical Mahabharata, we find them mirrored in the Vedic patriarchs who are the primitive types upon which all the others were modelled. But before comparison is possible, the Hindu myths must be comprehended in their true significance. Each of these mythical personages bears, besides an astronomical significance, a spiritual or moral, and an anthropological or physical meaning. The patriarchs are not only euhemerized gods...the prediluvian answering to the twelve great gods of Berosus, and the ten Projapatis, and the postdiluvian to the seven gods of the famous tablet in the Ninevean Library, but they stand also as the symbols of the Greek Aeons, the kabalistic Sephiroth, and the zodiacal signs, as types of a series of human races. This variation from ten to twelve will be accounted for presently, and proved on the very authority of the Bible. Only, they are not the first gods described by Cicero, which belong to a hierarchy of higher powers, the Elohim...but appertain rather to the second class of the 'twelve gods' the Di minores, and who are the terrestrial reflections of the first, among whom Herodotus places Hercules. Alone, out of the group of twelve, Noah, by reason of his position at the transitional point, belongs to the highest Babylonian triad, Nuah, the spirit of the waters. The rest are identical with the inferior gods of Assyria and Babylonia, who represent the lower order of emanations, introduced around Bel, the Demiurge, and help him in his work, as the patriarchs are shown to assist Jehovah...the "Lord God".
Besides these, many of which were local gods, the protecting deities of rivers and cities, there were four classes of genii; we see Ezekiel making them support the throne of Jehovah in his vision. A fact which, if it identifies the Jewish "Lord God" with one of the Babylonian trinity, connects at the same time, the present Christian God with the same triad, inasmuch as it is these four cherubs, on which Irannaeus makes Jesus ride, and which are shown as the companions of the evangelists.
The Hindu kabalistic derivation of the book of Ezekiel and Revelation is shown in nothing more plainly than in this description of the four beasts, which typify the four elementary kingdoms...earth, air, fire, and water. As is well known, they are the Assyrian sphinxes, but these figures are also carved on the walls of nearly every HIndu pagoda.
The Hindu goddess Ardhanari is represented as surrounded by the same figures. It fits exactly Ezekiel's 'wheel of the Adonai', known as 'the Cherubs of Ezekiel' and indicates, beyond question, the source from which the Hebrew seer drew his allegories.
"I have also read that when Jesus selected SIMON as one of his disciples he changed his name to "P'tah" meaning "ENLIGHTENED ONE" and through lack of understanding of the "unenlightened" translators of the Bible they called this disciple SIMON PETER..... instead of Simon the enlightened one.
