Fracturing the Faith …. Vol. 2

Where it all began… YHWH and the gods of the Mesopotamia Part 1 of 3

The Fertile Crescent, also known as the cradle of civilization, is a crescent-shaped region containing the comparatively moist and fertile land of otherwise arid and semi-arid areas of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, the State of Palestine, Egypt, as well as the southeastern fringe of Turkey and the western fringes of Iran. This is Mesopotamia, where life is said to have been birthed both by secular and religious accounts.

Genesis 1:8 “And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.” The Garden of Eden is a specific and separate area, also with boundaries, located WITHIN the Land of Eden. Adam; was not created inside the Garden, he was created outside the Garden and subsequently placed into it. So God brought man from a good place, the Land of Eden, into a better place the Garden of Eden. The word “Eden” is translated as “delight” and contains the Hebrew letters ayin, dalet, nun sofit. In the Paleo or Pictographic Hebrew this is “the visible {ayin} pathway/doorway {dalet} to the Messiah {nun sofit}.

Adam was a specific and deliberate creation of YHWH, to be set apart from other human beings. YHWH wanted to teach Adam not only gardening, he wanted to teach Adam how to worship HIM. The land of Eden, or Mesopotamia, was home to all humans but the Garden was for Adam. This separate appointed space would be the place Adam could meet one on one with the Creator. The remainder of humanity has access to the benevolence of the Creator through the creation itself, yet Adam would be set apart for plan of Salvation.

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” The word “beginning” or Be-re’shyit contains the Hebrew letters {Bet}, {resh}, {aleph}, {shin}, {yod} and {tav}. These were pictographic letters with each creating their own word. These are similar compound words to our words like “goodhearted” or “soft-spoken” only more complex. The {Bet, resh, aleph, shin, yod and tav} translates to Tent/house, head (or father), leader, teeth (or piercing), hand, covenant (or cross). The full understanding of the word would thus be “The head of the house of the Father pierced by the hand on a cross to bring the covenant.”

This is explained to us in Isaiah 46:10 “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure”

Some things we need to cover before moving forward; first is linear thinking verses compassed (all inclusive) thinking. American education is a product of the Greek philosophical societies created by the likes of Plato, Socrates and Aristotle. They focused on the “if, then” of civilization platting the framework of life in consecutive thought patterns. Compassed thinking describes the events of significance during an era and not always are they in the order of occurrence.

Secondly, we have to recognize the first five books of the Bible are written by Moses some 2600 years after the Creation and 1500 years after the life of Adam.

“We think, for example, in terms of “prophetic timetables.” Here again is the Western concept of time – points on a line. The Hebrew mind thinks of “the day of the Lord” – that is, the day or time when the Lord acts. The sequential order in which God will do things is of no concern to the Hebrew – only that he will act. The Western mind wants to have the “prophetic timetable” neatly arranged in time and space. We want to “tick off” events as they occur according to the pre-ordained schedule. This mentality is foreign to the Hebrew mind.” ~The Hebrew Mind vs. the Western Mind, Brian Knowles

With these in mind we must consider the fact that these books were written in a linguistic format that expressed a compassed line of thought. When Moses wrote about Abraham it would have been from his perspective and thus we do not see much in the text describing his interactions with his great grandchildren. He would have lived long enough to have had contact with them. The point is this: there are multiple things happening simultaneously that are recorded in Genesis 2 through 6, and so on throughout the Bible. Many well know they can fit the letters Paul wrote to the churches within the context of the Book of Acts. Also, we can easily fit the story of Job within the Book of Genesis through his relationship to Eliphaz who is listed in the genealogy of Esau.

YHWH created a male and a female whose offspring would, after the Tower of Babel, be labeled as people of the Orient, Africans, Egyptians, Polynesians, Caucasians, Hispanics, and Indians: 72 races with different languages.  Satan and other fallen angels would have access to humanity as soon as they were cast down.  Satan was given the title of “talebearer” in the spirit realm because he forged alliances against YHWH. He told Eve a whopper of a tale and she “ate of the tree” or consumed the lie.  Satan and his company of fallen Watchers caused the creation the underlying system of false religions well before the Tower of Babel, in fact, it began in the antediluvian world with the giants, men of renown. By the time of Nimrod’s kingdom of Babel, the false religious system was well-established.

The term Anunna (Akkadian: Anunnaki, Anunnaku) indicates a group of gods in the Mesopotamian pantheon. Later on, it is sometimes used to describe the underworld gods. The so-called Babylonian Creation Story, “Enūma eliš “ (Tablet VI, lines 39-44), narrates how Marduk assigned 300 Anunna gods for duty in the heavens, and the same number for duty in the netherworld, giving a total of 600 Anunna gods. In a secondary account “The Epic of Gilgameš”, the phrase “judge of the Anunnaki” is mentioned as a title of Gilgameš. There has been some discussion as to the meaning of the name Anunna. The most likely suggestions translate the term as something like “Those of princely seed”. These beings emanate from the princes of demons or Satan and the fallen angelic beings, The Watchers. We can see from the book of Enoch as well as the Scriptures in Genesis 6, Jude and Isaiah the occurrence of these events.
Jude 1:6, 14-16 “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. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.”

Isaiah 14:12-14 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:”

The gods and goddesses of polytheism originate with the Babylonian Mysteries religion, the ‘mysteries’ being a direct reference to the ‘mysteries of heaven’ taught by the Watchers to the women of antediluvian earth. The offspring from their forbidden union with human women were the Nephilim whose spirits were not allowed to transcend earth after death, but became evil spirits (demons) doomed to torment humanity as recompense for its involvement in violating YHWH’s order of Creation, each to its own kind.

It is claimed that all gods and goddesses of polytheism are individual facets of the original god and goddess of the Mysteries, Nimrod and Semiramis.  Thus, the fertility goddesses are all Semiramis.  Marduk, Ba’al, Molech, Osiris, etc., are representative of Nimrod, whose main representation was a bull.  Each polytheistic religion owes its system to the king and queen of Babel by way of the Tower of Babel when the languages were confused and groups were separated and went their own ways.  They still kept their Babylonian religion, but their gods and goddesses were given new names.
