The Way: We Are Not Bound By The Old Testament

‘The Way’ will reveal the major alterations made to the Bible, theological and historical cover ups – all part of the Great Deception. ‘The Way’ series will also reveal the true meaning of Jesus’ message and how to reach spiritual perfection.

This is not intended to shake your faith, or prove God isn’t real. God is very real. This is simply to help point out the errors the Catholic Church inserted into the text. The institutionalized Church and the canonized Bible are the Great Deception. No matter how hard the early Catholics tried to alter the text, Truth remains. Clues to the true story are hidden in the lies. The Light hidden within the Darkness. As a minister of Christ and follower of ‘The Way’, it is my job to defend Truth and present it to the world. I give you the facts, it is up to you to look into it yourself. Don’t believe it because I say it, believe it because you see it to be true.

Before you read any further, it must be understood I am not attacking God, but defending Him. I am not attacking His Word, but revealing it. I am not seeking to destroy His way, but to preserve it. I am a follower of Yeshua, defender of The Way.

Many Christians falsely believe that the Old Testament is still binding on us. Some Christians actually go so far as to call themselves Christian but do not even read nor follow the New Testament, or any other texts or scriptures with Jesus’ message – which only begs the question, how can you proclaim to be a follower of Christ when you know not what Christ taught? Here it will be shown that Jesus gave us the new and fulfilled the old. The Old Testament is fulfilled, and we are now under the New Testament.

Matthewv 5:17-18 KJV
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

From What does it mean that Jesus fulfilled the law, but did not abolish it?

It is frequently argued that if Jesus did not “abolish” the law, then it must still be binding. Accordingly, such components as the Sabbath-day requirement must be operative still, along with perhaps numerous other elements of the Mosaic Law. This assumption is grounded in a misunderstanding of the words and intent of this passage. Christ did not suggest here that the binding nature of the law of Moses would remain forever in effect. Such a view would contradict everything we learn from the balance of the New Testament (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:15).

Of special significance in this study is the word rendered “abolish.” It translates the Greek term kataluo, literally meaning “to loosen down.” The word is found seventeen times in the New Testament. It is used, for example, of the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans (Matthew 26:61; 27:40; Acts 6:14), and of the dissolving of the human body at death (2 Corinthians 5:1). The term can carry the extended meaning of “to overthrow,” i.e., “to render vain, deprive of success.” In classical Greek, it was used in connection with institutions, laws, etc., to convey the idea of “to invalidate.”

It is especially important to note how the word is used in Matthew 5:17. In this context, “abolish” is set in opposition to “fulfill.” Christ came “…not to abolish, but to fulfill.” Jesus did not come to this earth for the purpose of acting as an opponent of the law. His goal was not to prevent its fulfillment. Rather, He revered it, loved it, obeyed it, and brought it to fruition. He fulfilled the law’s prophetic utterances regarding Himself (Luke 24:44). Christ fulfilled the demands of the Mosaic law, which called for perfect obedience under threat of a “curse” (see Galatians 3:10, 13). In this sense, the law’s divine design will ever have an abiding effect. It will always accomplish the purpose for which it was given.

If, however, the law of Moses bears the same relationship to men today, in terms of its binding status, then it was not fulfilled, and Jesus failed at what He came to do. On the other hand, if the Lord did accomplish His goal, then the law was fulfilled, and it is not a binding legal institution today. Further, if the law of Moses was not fulfilled by Christ—and thus remains as a binding legal system for today—then it is not just partially binding. Rather, it is a totally compelling system. Jesus plainly said that not one “jot or tittle” (representative of the smallest markings of the Hebrew script) would pass away until all was fulfilled. Consequently, nothing of the law was to fail until it had completely accomplished its purpose. Jesus fulfilled the law. Jesus fulfilled all of the law. We cannot say that Jesus fulfilled the sacrificial system, but did not fulfill the other aspects of the law. Jesus either fulfilled all of the law, or none of it. What Jesus’ death means for the sacrificial system, it also means for the other aspects of the law.

From What Does the Bible Say About the Old Testament Law?

The teachings of Jesus, the Council of Jerusalem, and other New Testament teachings (John 1:16-17, Acts 13:39, Romans 2:25-29, 8:1-4, 1 Corinthians 9:19-21, Galatians 2:15-16, Ephesians 2:15) make it clear that Christians are not required to follow the Old Testament rules about crimes and punishments, warfare, slavery, diet, circumcision, animal sacrifices, feast days, Sabbath observance, ritual cleanness, etc.

Christians still look to the Old Testament scripture for moral and spiritual guidance (2 Timothy 3:16-17). But when there seems to be a conflict between Old Testament laws and New Testament principles, we must follow the New Testament because it represents the most recent and most perfect revelation from God (Hebrews 8:13, 2 Corinthians 3:1-18, Galatians 2:15-20).

However, freedom from the Old Testament Law is not a license for Christians to relax their moral standards. The moral and ethical teachings of Jesus and His apostles call for even greater self-discipline than those of the Old Testament (Matthew 5:21-22, 27-28, 31-32, 33-34, 38-42, 43-48, 7:1-5, 15:18-19, 25:37-40, Mark 7:21-23, 12:28-31, Luke 12:15, 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, Galatians 5:19-21, James 1:27, 2:15-16, 1 John 3:17-19).

John 19:30 KJV
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Gospel Of The Perfect Life
Lection LXXVI
13. I have glorified Thee on earth, I have finished the work Thou gavest me to do. Holy One, keep through Thy Name the Twelve and their fellows whom Thou hast given me, that they may be One even as we are One. Whilst I was with them in the world I kept them in Thy Name, and none of them is lost, for he who went out from us, was not of us, nevertheless, I pray for him that he may be restored. Father-Mother, forgive him, for he knoweth not what he doeth.

Gospel Of The Perfect Life
Lection LXXVIII
9. And he said unto Peter, Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Parent, and He shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Gospel Of The Perfect Life
Lection LXXXII
When Jesus had therefore received the vinegar, he cried aloud, It is finished; and he bowed his head and gave up the ghost. And it was the ninth hour.

The Old Testament is nothing more than history of our people and laws that have been fulfilled. If we are truly followers of Christ, we are to follow the New, not the Old. By following the Old, we are essentially telling Jesus He hasn’t fulfilled anything, he essentially failed miserably at what He came to do. The Old may be reviewed from a historical standpoint, but should not be looked upon as laws which are still binding. How can we be bound to that which Jesus fulfilled and finished?

When Jesus says “it is finished”, many are falsely taught that it simply pertains to sin. The final sacrifice. What He was actually referring to is the Old Testament. The fulfillment of the Old and ushering in of the New.

For example
Levitucus 11:3-31
Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat. Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you. These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you: They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination. Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you. And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
Every raven after his kind; And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl, And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle, And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth; Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you. And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even. And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even. The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean. And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.
And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you. These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole. These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.

Acts 11:7-10 KJV
And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat. But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth. But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.

Second Example
Psalm 69:21 KJV
They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

Matthew 27:34 KJV
They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

Third Example
Isaiah 53:8 KJV
He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Matthew 27:35
And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

There are hundreds of examples such as the above three. Whether it be Old Testament law or Old Testament prophecy, it has been fulfilled, it is finished. As followers of Christ, we are bound to the New, not the Old.

The Great Deception is among us, and has been for many years.

Matthew 24:24 (KJV)
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

We, the believers in Christ, are the elect. Anyone and everyone who sincerely believes in and follows Christ, is the elect.

Our minds are powerful. If enough people believe a certain event will take place, it will. The future isn’t told to us for the simple reason that it will be made to happen. Jesus’ prophecy of the Last Days does not have a set day, year, or time mentioned for the simple fact that man will make it be so. By not mentioning a specific timing, it is more or less left for us to decide if and when it will happen.

It’s believed that if someone knows their own future, no matter how hard they try to alter certain events, they are actually making the end result happen simply by anticipating it. It takes a strong will and open mind to alter an event known to be taking place at a specific time.

This has been used against us. The fact there is no specific time is being used to manipulate us. The ruling elite, powers that be, or whatever you would like to call them is using our own beliefs, our own faith, our own minds, against us. We must, as a global community, wake up and take faith and our minds back. Jesus preached freedom, not servitude. So are we going to break free and follow Jesus or remain under servitude and welcome annihilation?

Mark 11:23 (KJV)
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Man has perverted the teachings of Christ and began using it as a weapon against mankind with the intent of keeping us as slaves beneath them. Throughout history this took place under many religions. The most powerful, after realizing conversion was near impossible, was the Catholics. The Catholics determined what text is and is not “heresy”. They then altered the texts they chose to utilize. Each and every protestant denomination still uses some form or another of this altered text. But what Catholics weren’t intending on, is leaving enough truth in the “canonized” text for people who pay to attention to figure out, enough breadcrumbs for the True in Christ to follow. This is why Christianity, in all it’s forms, is being attacked and criminalized all over the world. People are waking up en masse to the true Christ and following the true Christ. They’re deception is slowly crumbling and Christ’s true message slowly spreading.

From The Great Deception Of Romanism

Pope is called the Vicar of Christ. The word vicar means a substitute or filling the place of another. Pope has taken the position of Christ. Roman Catholic system declare the Pope is the ‘Head of the Church’ – Stolen from Christ, as Christ Jesus is the head of the church. Colossians 1:18. Roman Catholic system is against Christ it is an antichrist.  The Greek word [anti] in scripture most nearly denotes something that is “in place of” another thing. The root meaning is, “instead of” or “in place of”. It is not the original but a substitution, not Christ but a substitute for Christ. Instead of Christ a false Christ an Antichrist.

[…]

When you look at the past at the protestant Reformation, Martin Luther, John Calvin and the reformers called the Pope an antichrist. The Roman Catholic Church was called the mother of all harlots and the abominations of the earth.  Roman Church persecuted and burned the true Christians. Rome dug up the bones of John Wycliffe and burned the bones. Rome burned John Hus, Savonarola. Roman Catholic burned over 300 Reformers men women and children in England. (1546). Rome burned William Tyndale.  Rome could not stop the spreading of Protestant Christianity.
God in his mercy used Martin Luther in Germany, John Calvin in Geneva and John Knox in Scotland, Church of Rome was wounded by the power of the sword, God’s word during the reformation.

[…]

Jesuit spies and agents began to infiltrate Protestant schools, and actually landed on the coast of the United States in the 1530’s and the 1540’s. In order to defend the Romanist religion, as well as the Pope (who Catholics are taught is actually “Christ on earth”), the Jesuits began their war plan for a battle on many fronts.

From Ten Areas Of Roman Catholic Deception

Roman Catholics wrongly think their church system was founded by Jesus on Peter the first pope.catholic priest catholic deceptionThe superiority the Roman Catholic Church claims for itself comes from this fallacious concept, which has led people into increasing error especially as Catholicism has drifted further and further into darkness over the centuries. Most Catholics are not aware of the doctrines that were added over the centuries or that certain popes were denounced as heretics by other popes. The whole idea of a papacy itself is unscriptural. After Jesus spoke Mt. 16:18, Peter was not recognized as the chief Apostle among the Twelve. Mk. 8:29 is the parallel account to Mt. 16:18. Less than one full chapter later, the disciples were arguing which of them was the greatest (Mk. 9:24). Hence, they didn’t understand Peter to be the chief. See also Acts 15 where Peter did not preside over the Jerusalem church council.

From The Catholic Church Is A Big Hoax

The Catholic crowd likes to do the same thing as the Wiccan witches do…claim that all Christians are ignorant of history.  How convenient that so many heathen groups can claim legitimacy and trustworthiness based upon ambiguous history.  If anything, history reveals that the Catholic religion is composed today of a series of invented heresies from over the centuries.

From Roman Catholic Beliefs – The Great Deception

They change the Bible to agree with what they are doing instead of doing what the Bible says to do. They justify this by telling you that God changed his mind and told the pope to change the Bible.

From Popes Proclaim That Salvation Is Only Through The Roman Catholic Church

Most Christians believe that the Papal Church is just another denomination.

But their own words prove that they are in fact Anti-Christ, because if salvation is only through them, then they are saying that you can’t simply be saved by faith in Christ.

If you’re a Christian that attends a Baptist church, or a Presbyterian Church or a non-denominational Church, according to the Catholic Church, they consider you a heretic that is not saved and will have no part in heaven.

[…]

The most explicit and forceful statement came from Pope Eugene IV, in the Bull Cantate Domino, A.D. 1441, who proclaimed ex cathedra:

“The Most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, also Jews, heretics, and schismatics can ever be partakers of eternal life, but that they are to go into the eternal fire ‘which was prepared for the devil and his angels’ unless before death they are joined with Her…

No one, let his alms giving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Jesus Christ can be saved unless they abide within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

They are saying that if you’re outside the Roman Catholic Church, you will burn in eternal fire with the devil, even if you die proclaiming the name of Jesus.

They are saying that salvation is not through Jesus alone.

From Catholicism Is Inconceivable Deception And Spiritual Destruction

Catholicism represents a very long history of deceit. The leadership of Catholicism today either do not understand their history, the scriptures or more than likely have been very effectively indoctrinated. Of course, the history alone should make a person consider the validity of Catholicism but it seems to have little effect in changing the minds of their adherents. The root problem is very simply that there is absolutely NO VALIDITY IN THE ORIGIN of Catholicism – No connection with God. Secondly, there is on almost every doctrinal issue a giant difference between the first century church and Catholicism, that is between the bible and Catholic doctrine. Associated with the second issue is the very nature of Catholicism as a physical church with physical doctrines when the Church belonging to Christ is spiritual with independent local (physical) churches with a scripturally defined mission and organization. Much of the physical nature of Catholicism is associated with the Old Law, such as priests and priestly duties. The net result of Catholic teaching is the loss of that which is most precious; the souls of men and women.

Here you have quotes from several different sources, as well as a list below. This is only a brief overview of the deceit and corruption throughout history. The deception started long before the Catholic Church, but the ones in charge of the Catholic Church are the same ones who created Judaism as it has been since 300bc, the same ones who created Islam, the same ones who decieved prior to Judaism, and the same ones who decieve today.

If history is to be accepted, if the Catholic Church is to seen as the decievers they are, it also must be seen and accepted that this deception is in every denomination of Christianity since the inception of the Catholic Church, as well as every faith that exists to this day.

We are living in the Great Deception. All have been brainwashed by it, most accept and follow its alterations. Only few wake up and break free from the deception and follow the true Christ.

If you wish to discover the true Christ, you must accept history. You must understand what the early Church believed and what texts they used. You must understand how Christianity became what it is today.

Every doctrine and every theology must be researched to the fullest. Most doctrines believed today by the vast majority of Christian’s, such as rapture theology, rites and sacraments, and atonement, all originated in the Catholic Church and spread as a cancer into every other denomination of Christianity. Many of these doctrines are as young as 200yrs old. These doctrines must be studied to understand their origins. Many doctrines believed today were not believed by early Christians because Jesus did not teach them. The Bible has been altered, and verses twisted, to make these new doctrines appear to be Biblically and Scripturally sound; but in all reality they are doctrines of men, not God.

Matthew 15:8-9 KJV
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Mark 7:6-8 KJV
He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

From The Second Treatise of the Great Seth

For they had a doctrine of angels to observe dietary laws and bitter slavery, since they never knew truth, nor will they know it. For there is a great deception upon their soul, making it impossible for them ever to find a Nous of freedom in order to know him, until they come to know the Son of Man. Now concerning my Father, I am he whom the world did not know, and because of this, it (the world) rose up against me and my brothers. But we are innocent with respect to him; we have not sinned.
For the Archon was a laughingstock because he said, “I am God, and there is none greater than I. I alone am the Father, the Lord, and there is no other beside me. I am a jealous God, who brings the sins of the fathers upon the children for three and four generations.” As if he had become stronger than I and my brothers! But we are innocent with respect to him, in that we have not sinned, since we mastered his teaching. Thus he was in an empty glory. And he does not agree with our Father. And thus through our fellowship we grasped his teaching, since he was vain in an empty glory. And he does not agree with our Father, for he was a laughingstock and judgment and false prophecy.

O those who do not see, you do not see your blindness, i.e., this which was not known, nor has it ever been known, nor has it been known about him. They did not listen to firm obedience. Therefore they proceeded in a judgment of error, and they raised their defiled and murderous hands against him, as if they were beating the air. And the senseless and blind ones are always senseless, always being slaves of law and earthly fear.

Complete ‘The Way’ series

This is a continuation of The Way: Gnosis Is Of Jesus, Not Satan

Many modern Christians would like to believe Gnostics to be heretics, and Gnosticism et al to be heresy. As was shown in earlier articles of ‘The Way’, that it is not the case. Gnosticism, and what became known as Gnostic Christianity, pre-date Catholicism and all other faiths. Gnostic Christians were actually the first Christians.

Many pastors, priests, and followers of the mainstream Christian establishment try to suggest that there are no Biblical references to Gnostics or Gnosis. Well, let us remember Gnosis is translated to wisdom, as is Da’ath. Gnosis is Greek whereas Daath is the Hebrew.

So, do we have references to Gnosis in the Bible? Below I give a few of the more than 272 verses that directly mention Gnosis.

1 Corinthians 2:6-8
Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom (Gnosis) of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom (Gnosis), which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

2 Peter 3:15-16
And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom (Gnosis) given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

James 1:5-6
If any of you lack wisdom (Gnosis) , let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

James 3:13
Who is a wise man (Gnostic) and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom (Gnosis).

James 3:17
But the wisdom (Gnosis) that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Colossians 1:9
For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom (Gnosis) and spiritual understanding;

Colossians 1:28
Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom (Gnosis); that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Colossians 2:2-4
That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom (Gnosis) and knowledge. And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.

Colossians 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom (Gnosis); teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Colossians 4:5
Walk in wisdom (Gnosis) toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

Ephesians 1:17
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom (Gnosis) and revelation in the knowledge of him:

Ephesians 3:10
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom (Gnosis) of God,

Romans 11:33
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom (Gnosis) and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Acts 6:3
Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom (Gnosis), whom we may appoint over this business.

Acts 6:10
And they were not able to resist the wisdom (Gnosis) and the spirit by which he spake.

Luke 2:40
And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom (Gnosis); and the grace of God was upon him.

Luke 2:52
And Jesus increased in wisdom (Gnosis) and stature, and in favour with God and man.

Luke 11:49
Therefore also said the wisdom (Gnosis) of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

Luke 21:15
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom (Gnosis), which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

Mark 6:2
And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom (Gnosis) is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

Matthew 13:54
And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom (Gnosis), and these mighty works?

Daniel 1:17
As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom (Gnosis): and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

Isaiah 11:2
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom (Gnosis) and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

As you can see, Gnosis was spoken about quite often. We are reminded throughout, that to achieve the spiritual kingdom we must grow in spiritual wisdom, not worldly wisdom. We need knowledge and wisdom of this world and our respective societies to survive while we exist in this world; but we must attain spiritual wisdom in order to make entry into the spiritual kingdom. This wisdom can only be obtained through faith in Jesus Christ, and walking down the path he has laid before us.

Mainstream dogma and rituals are nothing more than broken promises and a guarantee to your spiritual enslavement and eventual eternal destruction. Many Christians also put on a good act, thinking Jesus cannot see their heart. Memorizing the Bible and pretending while in front of the public does you no good, lest you are also that way in private and in your heart. Those of you who ignorantly call yourselves Christians are in worse condition than those who admittedly don’t follow Christ. You may be able to fool others, but you cannot fool Jesus.

Many also state they refuse to read Gnostic texts because it may “shake” their “faith”. As was made clear throughout this series thus far, Gnosis was taught by Jesus, not todays dogma and rituals. In fact, Jesus taught against dogmatic nonsense and rituals. Todays dogma, regardless of denomination, originate in the Catholic church. The Catholics have admitted that certain texts were altered or not accepted in their chosen canon because the text goes against what they (the Catholics) chose to believe. In other words, the Catholics deliberately altered the Gospel of Christ to fit what they believe – and all of you Christians today are believing in this gospel of the Catholics, not the Gospel as preached by Christ.

Now, that is not to say you can’t read the Bible. The devil cannot preach the lies without truth. Truth must be mentioned. Todays Bibles contain truth wrapped in lies. It is in this way the devil tricks the people and convinces us to follow him instead of Jesus. You must read the Bible closely, and pray. The Truth will stand out while the lies fade into the background.

There is a reason why Jesus stated “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear”. He was speaking things with a double meaning. Those of the Light would hear the spiritual meaning, while those not of the light would only hear the worldly meaning.

Many will try countering this by showing me other verses in 1 Corinthians. In those verses, Paul is speaking of worldly wisdom, not spiritual wisdom. If, however, you would like to believe all verses are of the same type of wisdom, therefore taking those verses out of context, then you must also believe then, that Paul is contradicting himself. So which is it? Is the Bible accurate or contradictory, for it cannot be both. Truth hidden beneath lies does not equate contradiction. (More on Paul Here)

Everyone claims to be believers of the Gospel and followers of Christ. But are you? Which Gospel is it that you believe, the Gospel of Christ or the gospel of man?

As Peter states in the verse quoted above, somethings will be hard to understand at first and those that cannot immediately understand, will twist the meaning of the scriptures to fit themselves, causing their spiritual destruction. This began with the Catholics and continues unto this very day in each and every denomination.

I will leave you with Scripture for my closing statement:
Gospel of Peace: Book One
For I tell you truly, all living things are nearer to God than the scripture which is without life. God so made life and all living things that they might by the everlasting word teach the laws of the true God to man. God wrote not the laws in the pages of books, but in your heart and in your spirit.

Gospel Of The Perfect Life
Lection XC:9-10
9. Be faithful to the light ye have, till a higher light is given to you. Seek more light, and ye shall have abundantly; rest not, till ye find.
10. God giveth you all Truth, as a ladder with many steps, for the salvation and perfection of the soul, and the truth which seemeth to day, ye will abandon for the higher truth of the morrow. Press ye unto Perfection.

Gospel Of Thomas
2) Jesus said, “Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All.”

John 8:32 KJV
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Galatians 4:16 KJV
Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

The Way – Complete Series

Many Christians today feel it is heretical to read anything other than their churches preferred Bible version because it may “shake” their “faith”. They also feel work by those such as myself are heretical because it challenges the very foundation of what their priest/pastor is saying to them. Many Christian authors and pastors go as far as denouncing and defaming Gnosticism, Gnostic and lost Gospels, and ancient Christian texts and scriptures without even reading ANY of the material. Those who do, do not read it in full, nor do they read with an open mind. Rather, they skim for statements that challenge their own teachings and take the statements out of context as they read with a pre-determined bias against the material.

Little do they realize that all of todays Bible versions are based off of the man-chosen, edited, and altered Bible as put together and “canonized” by the Catholic Church. Little do Catholics know their church was not formed by Jesus, but more than 270yrs after His death on the Cross. Little do all know that the Catholics spent 400yrs murdering all the pre-Catholic Christians (referred to as Gnostics – translated as Wise Ones) and burned their texts (the original Christian scriptures) that they (Catholics) chose not to include in the “canonized” Bible (though the books that were included were also edited).

Mainstream Christians, as the Pharisees and their followers of Jesus’ day, call people such as myself heretics (as Jesus Himself was called) because we are doing as Jesus said to do – “Seek and ye shall find”, “Knock and it shall be opened unto you” – and researching, praying, and seeking out the truth. As truth is found, we are exposing the heresies and lies of the mainstream, institutionalized, Christian establishment. Rather than embrace these truth’s, the pharisees of today fear it because they lose congregants, which means a loss of money in their pockets.

That being said, one original document in particular has recieved much defamation amongst the mainstream. This document reveals what is meant by many teachings in the Bible and reveals what other books (primarily in the Old Testament) were actually about. This text is known as Pistis Sophia (translated as ‘Wisdom in Faith’ – Pistis = Faith, Sophia = Wisdom).

Based on my reading of Pistis Sophia, other ancient texts, and extensive research into the history of the Bible and Christianity et al, I believe one alteration the Catholics have made during the “canonization” of the Bible, was to move around certain scriptures and put them out of their original order as well as change some wording. I came to this conclusion since the numbers of Psalms do not line up 100% in Pistis Sophia and todays Bible and the wording is slightly altered, though the point is the same. Below I will show the Psalm as it is numbered in Pistis Sophia (PS) and where it is in todays modern Bible translations (MBT).

I highly recommend all to read Pistis Sophia. I was going to write a breakdown of the book, but it explains itself.

Where it states there are additional verses in modern Bibles, added verses are at the end. For example, if a Psalm has 40 verses in the Bible, and below is stated it has 5 added verses, the last verse is supposed to be verse 35. Verses 36-40 have been added by the Catholic Church.

PS – Psalm 24 = MBT – Psalm 25
PS – Psalm 29 = MBT – Psalm 30
PS – Psalm 30 = MBT – Psalm 31 (added 6 verses)
PS – Psalm 31 = MBT – Psalm 32
PS – Psalm 34 = MBT – Psalm 35
PS – Psalm 39 = MBT – Psalm 40
PS – Psalm 50 = MBT – Psalm 51 (added 15 verses)
PS – Psalm 51 = MBT – Psalm 52
PS – Psalm 68 = MBT – Psalm 69
PS – Psalm 69 = MBT – Psalm 70
PS – Psalm 70 = MBT – Psalm 71
PS – Psalm 81 = MBT – Psalm 82
PS – Psalm 84 = MBT – Psalm 85
PS – Psalm 87 = MBT – Psalm 88
PS – Psalm 90 = MBT – Psalm 91
PS – Psalm 101 = MBT – Psalm 102 (added 7 verses)
PS – Psalm 102 = MBT – Psalm 103
PS – Psalm 106 = MBT – Psalm 107
PS – Psalm 108 = MBT – Psalm 109 (added 4 verses)
PS – Psalm 119 = MBT – Psalm 120
PS – Psalm 129 = MBT – Psalm 130

The Way: Jesus And The ‘Age of Aquarius’

The Way – Complete Series

The following article is a theory based on theological, astrological, historical, and philosophical research. What I present below is merely a theory, not yet proven fact or fiction by way of research.

This post is broken down into sections: ‘Main Article’, ‘Additional Info’, and ‘Sources and Further Reading’

Main Article

It’s believed the Bible is coded. While many believe it is literal, I feel there is credence to the claim the Bible is in code. Why else would Jesus say several times “Those who have ears to hear, let them hear; Those with eyes to see, let them see”?

I’m going to attempt to show how a certain statement, which many take as a historical matter-of-fact, is a parable with a hidden meaning. If this simple statement is in all reality a parable, how we read the Bible must alter to be sure we are completely and fully understanding of what is being said.

But first, I need to bring the 13th zodiac sign to your attention. There are, in fact, 13 signs of the zodiac in the 12 month time span of the year.

This 13th, and long hidden, sign is called Ophiuchus (formerly known as Serpentarius). The Serpentarius constellation resides between Scorpio and Sagittarius. The Serpentarius sign falls on the dates November 29 – December 17. Ophiuchus translates out as “Serpent-bearer”. The Sun is the symbol of Serpentarius, the constellation is depicted as a man (Ophiuchus) bearing (or holding) a serpent (the constellation Serpens).

The zodiac signs represent ages. So, are there cycles of 12 or 13 ages? What if I told you there were 13 ages in a cycle of 12? The ‘Age of Serpentarius’ and ‘Age of Aquarius’ happen simultaneously. It’s like a forked road. It is what the Mayans were trying to suggest about the end of the world (age). In the end, we must choose a path. This is similar to Jesus saying “wide is the path, strait (narrow) is the gate”, as I will show below.

People will have to choose the Aquarian or Serpentarian path in the ‘Age of Aquarius’. The ‘Age of Aquarius’ is said to be an age of a higher, connected conciousness. It is believed, through this conciousness, there will be peace and prosperity. However, let’s keep in mind “wide is the path, strait is the gate” as we look at the ‘Age of Aquarius’.
Aquarian – Collective-consciousness, peace across all people and nations, and unforeseen prosperity. All taking place here, on Earth.
Serpentarian – Universal-consciousness, light-wisdom, peace and prosperity. Iniating here on Earth, but propels into the Spiritual Kingdom / Heaven / Paradise / Whatever you wish to refer to it as.

The Aquarian (wide path) is going to confuse everyone into believing we are experiencing ‘Paradise on Earth’, the end of evil. However, those who choose Aquarian will be destined to remain here, on Earth, as their family and friends break free of this world and enter the next. The Serpentarian (strait gate), on the other hand, is the way into Jesus’ reign. The way out of this existence and into the Spiritual Kingdom in the Heavens Jesus speaks of.

Let us remember the serpent is a symbol of wisdom and healing. The serpent was worshipped in almost every ancient culture in one way or another. In some cultures, the serpent symbolized fertility.

The hidden meaning of the Serpent and the Old Testament was discussed in my The Way series

Now onto the Bible statement I mentioned above I would attempt to reveal a hidden meaning, therefore suggesting the entire Bible has a hidden meaning behind every passage.

Luke 22:9-11 (KJV)
And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.
And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples?

Let’s break it down:
the city = new age
man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water = symbol of Aquarius
house where he entereth in = Age of Aquarius
guestchamber = Serpentarius

So we now have:
And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city (new age), there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water (symbol of Aquarius); follow him into the house where he entereth in (Age of Aquarius).
And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house [Age of Aquarius], The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber (Serpentarius), where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples?

Or with just the hidden meaning:

And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the [new age], there shall meet you [Aquarius]; follow him into the [Age of Aquarius].
And ye shall say unto the goodman of the [Age of Aquarius] The Master saith unto thee, Where is the [Serpentarius], where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples?

This statement is mirrored in Mark. Lets have a look:
Mark 14:12-14 (KJV)
And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.
And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

The breakdown:
when they killed the passover = ending the ‘Age of Aries’, entering into the ‘Age of Pisces’ during the cusp between the ages. The lamb is a symbol of Aries.
he sendeth forth two of his disciples = The two witnesses of the last days *(see Rev. 11:3 below)
the city = new age
meet you a man, bearing a pitcher of water = symbol of Aquarius
wheresoever he shall go in = Age of Aquarius
guestchamber = Serpentarius

So now we have:
Mark 14:12-14 (KJV)
And the first day of unleavened bread, when they [left the Age of Aries, entering the Age of Pisces], his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest [leave the Age of Aries]?
And he sendeth forth [the two witnesses], and saith unto them, Go ye into the [new age], and there shall meet you [Aquarius]: follow him.
And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the [Age of Aquarius], The Master saith, Where is the [Serpentarius], where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

Some may question, if this is indeed true, why hide it from us and why hide the 13th zodiac? Satan, as called by many, needs our consent to have control over us in any way. Rules are the Truth must be provided. In every aspect of life we see hints of the Truth. It is up to us to decipher it. Much of what the ‘Old Testament’ calls evil (astrology for example) are tools which may be used to decipher the world around us. The evil knows their time is short, and perverted many teachings while exposing the Truth hidden behind symbolism. Jesus, in the ‘New Testament’, tells us to watch for signs in the heavens (astrology).

It is to everyones benefit to latch onto one path. Either the ‘Old’ or the ‘New’. Trying to live in both era’s, both times, both testaments, has and still is creating confusion. Is there not enough confusion between the varying faiths without further confusing ourselves?

Additional Info

Living Water is a symbol of Aquarius. This symbol of Aquarius is also mentioned in the Bible:

John 4:10-11 KJV
Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. [Aquarius]
The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water [Aquarius]?

John 7:38 KJV
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. [Aquarius]

Revelation 7:17 KJV
For the Lamb [Aries] which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters [Aquarius]: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

There are references in the ‘Old Testament’ as well; but as I stated above, we must choose the ‘Old’ or the ‘New’. It is impossible to live in both and reach spiritual maturity.

The Dove is a symbol of peace, love, and self-sacrifice for the sake of their progeny. It is said that the Dove is within Sagittarius and Scorpio. Serpentarius resides between Sagittarius and Scorpio. Considering the constellations, Ophiuchus is stepping on Scorpio and Sagittarius is pointing at Ophiuchus.

Luke 3:22
And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove [Serpentarius] upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

Matthew 10:16
Behold, I send you forth as sheep [Aries] in the midst of wolves [Taurus]: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves [Serpentarius].

Remember, serpents are the symbol of wisdom and healing. In ancient cultures they were highly respected. Here Jesus is saying to be wise and peaceful. Jesus’ desciples were remnants of the ‘Age of Aries’ during the transition (or cusp) into the ‘Age of Pisces’. Many (including the Pharisees and Sadduccees) were still clenching onto beliefs from the ‘Age of Taurus’.

Moses led the people out of the ‘Age of Taurus’ (Egypt), through the cusp (the desert), and into the ‘Age of Aries’ (the promised land). This is why he was upset with the Golden Calf. Everything is supposed to be “As Above, So Below”. The calf was a symbol from the ‘Age of Taurus’, an age they were no longer in. Food for thought – Yahweh was once called Ba’al and Ba’al-Yahweh. They dropped Ba’al as it was from the previous age. The “keeper of the sacred bull” now became the “hunter of the bull”.

The wisdom and healing abilities attributed to the serpent and governed by the constellation Serpentarius, were the abilities (powers) given to the Apostles:
Mark 16:18
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Jesus is said to be the Lamb of God. So let us decode a prophetic verse:
Revelation 5:12
Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

Lamb = Aries
slain to receive = the passing of an age
power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing = traits attributed to the serpent and guided by Serpentarius.

So what it is actually saying is:
Jesus (who was born on the cusp of the Ages of Aries and Pisces) passed through an age to become Serpentarian (spiritually enlightened).

This is ongoing research. I ask you to do the same. If you have further information, or would like to help us in the research of this theory, you may email us at RevDrRedMinistries@gmail.com

*Revelation 11:3 KJV
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

The Way: Gnosis Is Of Jesus, Not Satan

‘The Way’ will reveal the major alterations made to the Bible, theological and historical coverups – all part of the Great Deception. ‘The Way’ series will also reveal the true meaning of Jesus’ message and how to reach spiritual perfection.

This is not intended to shake your faith, or prove God isn’t real. God is very real. This is simply to help point out the errors the Catholic Church inserted into the text. The institutionalized Church and the canonized Bible are the Great Deception. No matter how hard the early Catholics tried to alter the text, Truth remains. Clues to the true story are hidden in the lies. The Light hidden within the Darkness. As a minister of Christ and follower of ‘The Way’, it is my job to defend Truth and present it to the world. I give you the facts, it is up to you to look into it yourself. Don’t believe it because I say it, believe it because you see it to be true.

Before you read any further, it must be understood I am not attacking God, but defending Him. I am not attacking His Word, but revealing it. I am not seeking to destroy His way, but to preserve it. I am a follower of Yeshua, defender of The Way.

Complete ‘The Way’ series

Christians are infamous for attacking other faiths, including other denominations of Christianity. Recently, I have noticed many trying to suggest Gnosticism is a form of Satanism and the religion of the NWO. Despite the fact that Islam, or Chrislam, is being embraced by the followers of the elite; many elitists are Muslim and others are Jewish. This has been shown by many as fact.

Many, including myself, have put forth information showing how todays Christianity came about, when it came about, and when various beliefs of the modern Christology came about. Information has also been put forth revealing the same elitists that formed modern Christianity also rewrote the Torah and created Islam. This was done to keep us, the people of God, divided and warring amongst ourselves.

It has been stated in the past, the Catholics led a 400yr war against true followers of Christ. Killing hundreds of thousands, and forcing others to go underground and practice in private. Those true followers of Christ were the Gnostics that modern Christians are passing off as Satanists. Modern Christianity, while containing parts of Truth, is the Great Deception (or at the very least, a big part of it). Satan has made himself as the Most High, and did it in plain sight of all. The discovery of numerous Gnostic writings unearthed at Nag Hammadi that were copies of original texts, some of which may date to the Apostolic Age, suggests that perhaps the Gnostics did possess some secret teachings. The Gospel of Thomas contains sayings (on which that gospel was based) that may even predate the New Testament gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, according to some academics.

The church fathers believed that Gnosticism was a corruption of Christian teaching. However, Gnosticism predates Christianity and thus cannot be simply an obscure offshoot of Christianity. In actuality, Christianity itself is a religion rooted in and vaguely based on Gnosticism.

I will provide the truth about Gnosticism, as well as quotes from and links to outside sources. This article is a bit long, but informative. Please read in it’s entirety, you will leave with a well-informed, un-biased stance on Gnosticism based on historical fact. Additional links to other articles of interest related to this topic are listed below the quoted sources.

LET MY PEOPLE KNOW

Gnosticism Overview

Gnosticism (from Ancient Greek : γνωστικός gnostikos , “learned”, from γνῶσις gnōsis, knowledge) describes a collection of ancient religions that taught that people should shun the material world created by the demiurge and embrace the spiritual world.

John 18:36 KJV
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Gnosticism is primarily defined in a Christian context. Some scholars believe that gnosticism predated Christianity and included pre-Christian religious beliefs and spiritual practices argued to be common to early Christianity, Neoplatonism, Hellenistic Judaism, Greco-Roman mystery religions, and Zoroastrianism (especially Zurvanism). While many scholars attempt to refute this claim due to the Nag Hammadi library, suggesting Gnosticism is second century, they fail to realize the same may be said of their canonized gospels. Early Gnostic gospels have been discovered, but only fragments are surfacing. This is due to the coverup that has been going on for more than 1700yrs. Jesus preached freedom and independant thought. Those who sought to rule over us can’t have such beliefs out there amongst the people, and carefully edited and constructed the canon to fit their purpose. Much of the original and older texts have been burned, along with followers. Only few full texts and fragments remain, even less known to the public of their existance.

A common characteristic of some of these groups was the teaching that the realisation of Gnosis (spiritual wisdom or knowledge) is the way to salvation of the soul from the material world. They saw the material world as created through an intermediary being (the demiurge) rather than directly by God. In most of the systems, this demiurge was seen as imperfect, in others even as evil. Different gnostic schools sometimes identified the demiurge as Ahriman , El , Saklas, Samael, Satan, Yaldabaoth, or Yahweh.

Jesus is identified by some Gnostics as an embodiment of the supreme being who became incarnate to bring gnōsis to the earth, while others adamantly denied that the supreme being came in the flesh, claiming Jesus to be merely a human who attained divinity through gnosis and taught his disciples to do the same.

The Christian groups first called gnostic were a branch of Christianity, however Joseph Jacobs and Ludwig Blau note that much of the terminology employed is Jewish and note that this “proves at least that the principal elements of gnosticism were derived from Jewish speculation, while it does not preclude the possibility of new wine having been poured into old bottles.” The movement spread in areas controlled by the Roman Empire and Arian Goths, and the Persian Empire; it continued to develop in the Mediterranean and Middle East before and during the 2nd and 3rd centuries. Conversion to Islam and the Albigensian Crusade (1209–1229) greatly reduced the remaining number of Gnostics throughout the Middle Ages, though a few Gnostic communities still exist.

What Others Have To Say

From Types Of Christianity by Vexen.co.uk
Emphasis in certain areas is my own.

‘Christianity’ is not a single religion dating
from 2,000 years age. A long series of varied different religions, flowing on from one another, have all called themselves “Christian”. Rightly so. The beliefs and form have changed so much from time to time that it is best to consider Christianity a series of religions and the word “Christianity” to be an umbrella term for multiple faiths all of which have the same name but different beliefs. Some historical forms of Christianity have made more sense, and some have made less sense, than the Christian mythology that is common today. Modern archaeology has uncovered many of these early forms of Christianity, and no longer can we say that modern-day Christianity in its various forms represents early Christianity. It hardly does. Christianity now is quite varied, but in history the varieties were much more exotic.

Today when we trace the source of modern Christianity, we find that Christianity was codified in the 4th century. But in the fourth century, they didn’t know what the source of Christianity was although critics said it was re-hashed paganism. So in the fourth century, they too searched in history to find the source of Christianity. They found the history of their religion to pre-date the actual founding of their own religion. The ancient history of Christianity is merged with the history of Paganism and the Church Fathers in the 4th century, so much closer to original Christianity than us, even mistook a group of pagans for early Christians. It wasn’t the only time that they done this either, for when Bishop Melito in 160CE when in search of the ancient center of Christianity, he discovered only a group called the Ebionites, another ancient group that 4th century Christianity rejected as heretical.

Jewish history led up to Christianity to the extent that Judaism and Christianity shared a blurred boundary in history. Jesus was a Jew and historians find it difficult to classify many early texts as either Jewish or Christian. This confusion is increasingly apparent in Greek-influenced Jewish texts, or, are they Jewish-influenced texts of Roman Mystery religions? Whatever they were, we know one thing: Christianity did not suddenly arrive as a bolt from the blue, but formed part of a progression in history that led from pure paganism, through to the more ‘modern’ Christianity of the 4th century, without any sudden spurt of change or innovation.

Stephen Hodge studied the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were written variously between 170BCE and 68 BCE, and he usefully lists many of the similarities found in the Dead Sea Scrolls to the teachings and organisation of the Jewish Christianity which was to arise from the same period in time. He concludes that these Jewish documents make the teachings and appearance of Jewish Christianity less revolutionary.

[….]

Hodge lists many of the similar practices of the Dead Sea Scroll community and notes which ones were the same as those teachings accepted by the New Testament writers. The list includes:
1. Common ownership of property.
2. Exorcism: ‘Allusions to this practice of exorcism are found in some of the writings from Qumran, such as the Genesis Apocryphon where it says, ‘so I prayed for him … and I laid my hands on his head; and the scourge departed from him and the evil spirit was expelled from him’ (XX22.29)’.
3. Teachings on divorce and treatment of enemies: ‘The scrolls have also been useful in providing valuable background information for ideas hitherto found only in the Gospels. For many years scholars had been baffled by the ban that Yeshua imposed upon divorce and remarriage, for this ruling had not been found in any other Jewish sources. but when works like the Temple Scroll and the Damascus Document came to light, it was soon noticed that members of the Community were similarly forbidden to divorce’
4. The ritual meal
5. The Beatitudes: ‘Even teachings of Yeshua previously thought to be unique, such as the Beatitudes which he enumerates in the course of the Sermon on the Mount, find a parallel among the writings of the Qumran Community.’ One such work is called The Beatitudes (4QBeat) where a number of virtues are mentioned in a very similar spirit to how they are in the New Testament. A series of beatitudes are listed which start ‘Blessed be they who…’
6. Eschatological dualism – a great fight between good and evil during end times
7. Literary style and terminology: ‘Writers in the Community used the unique pesher method of interpreting older scriptural texts in terms of contemporary events. When doing so, however, they expressed their interpretations in a heavily coded manner

Ebionite Christians (1st-4th Century)
Ebionite Christians believed that all the Jewish Laws had to be obeyed; including the Sabbath and circumcision for all males. As such, they considered St Paul to be the archenemy of Christianity as he taught that people did not have to obey the Law in order to be saved. They believed Jesus was Human, and adopted by God as a perfect sacrifice. The Ebionites were some of the original Christians: Jews who believed that Jesus was the Messiah. They populated the legendary Jerusalem Church. ‘Ebionite’ was sometimes used as a term to describe all Christians. Those who we now know of as Pauline Christians opposed the Ebionites, after discovering them and realizing that their beliefs differed. […] Pauline Christians eradicated the Ebionites, burning all of their books (none survived) and harassing and arresting the people until none were left. They edited Luke 2:33 and Luke 2:48 where Joseph was twice called the ‘father’ of Jesus so that it did not say so, and they also edited Luke 3:22 where it plainly stated, in accordance with Ebionite beliefs, that God adopted Jesus. Pauline Christians, as non-Jewish Romans, handily came across a mistranslated prophecy that said Jesus would be born of a virgin (like other Roman sons-of-gods), adding a whole two chapters to the beginning of Matthew to prove their point. These edits, when they were uncovered, have shown that the Ebionites were treated very cruelly and unfairly, and that the original readings of Matthew and Luke both support Ebionite Christianity, rather than the Pauline Christianity that the West has inherited.

[….]

Gnosticism (1st-7th Century)
Gnosticism is an ancient religion stemming from the first century (approximately), and is an alternative messiah-religion that shares many features with Christianity . An inferior angelic being created the Earth, and this being is a hindrance to spiritual development. Many Gnostic schools taught that the Hebrew Scriptures were the religious creation of this inferior god. To trick this god out of power, a saviour was sent by the true god, and the sacrifice of this innocent man undermined the power of the old god, allowing the possibility for people to become saved and align themselves with the true god. Gnosticism was heavily attacked by the first Christian anti-heresy writers. Some authors such as Freke & Gandy (1999) argue that Christianity as we know it is a shallow version of Gnosticism which has mistaken symbolic stories for real ones, whereas many academics find that the historical and archaeological evidence is unclear: Christianity and gnosticism are related, but, and although we don’t yet know which one came first, it seems that early Christianity was much more Gnostic than it is now, and perhaps the gnostic/literalist divide simply didn’t exist for the first two centuries of Christian history. By the 7th century, literalist Christians had overwhelmed Gnosticism and related forms of Christianity, leaving us with modern Trinitarian Christianity .

[….]

Roman Christianity / Pauline Christianity (4th Century +)
The gnostic Mithraists and Jewish Ebionites formed the very first Christians of the first century, with practices and beliefs based respectively on Gnostic and Judaistic rituals, symbols and practices. Pauline Christians dispensed with the difficult Jewish laws and became popular amongst gentiles, soon out-numbering the Jewish Christians, causing them to be secluded and eventually suppressed. Increasing literalism amongst roman converts then led the Pauline Christians to become obsessed with enforcing their literal interpretation of Christianity’s original stories, causing another huge rift with older gnostic-style Christians. With Roman power behind their press and with the favour of Emperors, the Pauline-Nicene Christians wiped out the gnostics, annihilated the Arians after long bloody campaigns, and murdered and burnt the Marcionites and many other small sects, to leave themselves as the sole Christians within the Roman Empire, free to edit their own books to ‘prove’ how all their predecessors had been wrong. The three Cappadocian scholars promoted the Holy Spirit to the godhead to create a Trinity, which was codified strictly in to the Nicene Creed of 381, which went to careful lengths to disclaim against ‘heresy’. Emperor Theodosius published a series of forceful edicts intolerant of all non-Nicene sects. This state of affairs persisted in the West for over a thousand years from the 5th century, causing mainstream Christianity to become completely ignorant of their own past.

[….]

When the Roman-backed instance of Christianity went in search of the ancient centres of Christianity, they discovered to their horror that the Ebionites and Gnostics pre-dated them. Their un-Christian answer was to edit verses, burn books, invent doctrines such as the Trinity, arrest and harass the other poverty-stricken Christians until no opposition was left. The form of Christianity that we have inherited from the Roman Empire is far from what Christianity originally was, yet most modern denominations took Cappadocian-Nicene Pauline Christianity as their starting point (and few have moved far from it). Such a shame that this colourful history is not only abandoned, but is also mostly forgotten!

Now we take a look parts of Roots of Gnosticism by Meera Lester

Aspects of Gnosticism were present from the earliest beginnings of the Christian faith and spread rapidly throughout Palestine, Syria, and elsewhere in the Near East. It developed into a coherent system of thought during the second through the fourth centuries. Gnosticism likely predated Christianity and borrowed ideas and themes from Greek philosophy (especially Plato) and Judaism, syncretizing or merging them with ancient myths and Christian stories. Biblical historians believe that Gnosticism, as a growing movement, originated in the Hebrew-Christian environment because many names, ideas, and idiomatic expressions that occur in Gnostic writings have Semitic origins.

[…] There were certainly Gnostic Christians. It would be incorrect to say that the Gnostics were a single group of people in a specific locale, with one religious doctrine, one view of God, one concept of creation and cosmology. Scholar Bart D. Ehrman, who studies the scriptures and faiths of the ancient world and who chairs the department of religious studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, asserts that it might make sense to place the origins of Gnostic Christianity inside of Judaism.

For their differences, one thing remained constant about the Gnostics. Regardless of the cultural lenses they peered through, they were spiritual seekers. They sought to acquire knowledge about spiritual beliefs in order to further their understanding of all things divine. They believed that matter was essentially the deterioration of spirit. Through inner intuitive knowledge of the transcendent unknowable God, their souls became liberated. The quest for that special knowledge was the central purpose of life. The Gnostics presented their ideas and beliefs through mythological stories, treatises, gospels, letters, books, acts, sayings, hymns, and other texts much as the Christians did. But unlike the Christian literature, little of the Gnostic tradition survived — that is, until the discovery of a treasure trove of Gnostic writings in a cave near Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in the spring of 1945. The material has since been translated and published, both in book form as The Nag Hammadi Library, edited by James M. Robinson, and on the Internet at http://www.gnosis.org/naghamm/nhl.html.

[….]

The Gnostics depict creation as having two main realms. The first is a dark (materialistic) world, full of malevolent forces, including its creator the Demiurge (akin to Satan in Christian theology) and its fellow rulers known as archons. The other is the realm of Light, presided over by the supreme, transcendent God and spiritual emanations of the Divine known as Aeons.

Integral to all Gnostic thinking was the idea that the divine fragment or spark from the realm of Light (a synonym for God) dwells in each human. The spark, in a virginal state of purity, became trapped in the realm of matter or darkness (material world) where it suffered. Only when it returns to the realm of Light through gnosis (inner knowledge) will it be free. There it will dwell while others remain trapped in the dark, evil materialistic world. Aeons like Sophia (the embodiment of wisdom) and Jesus (the embodiment of the Savior) bring secret teachings to help those trapped find their way back to the Light.

Now lets take a look at Gnosticism by PopeAnnalisa.com
Empasis is my own.

Today we see celebrities fascinated with learning the Kabbalah, the wisdom of Jewish mystical tradition that has survived from ancient times. Far fewer people know that there was a related Christian mystical tradition called Gnosticism, a tradition once so powerful that a visionary Gnostic seer named Valentinus narrowly missed becoming the pope in the second century. In fact, Gnosticism was one of the two original major branches of the Christian religion from its founding until the third century AD. From that point on, the Gnostics fell into gradual decline to the point of near extinction. But who were these people whose visions presented a startling perspective on early Christianity, the nature of the Christ, the role of women in the creation, and the quest to realize the divine in our lives?

In the rise and fall and resurrection of Gnosticism lies fascinating clues to the mysteries of our existence. The First Souls is a saga of people struggling to recover the realm of wholeness from which we originated. This path to the divine was described by Gnostic and other mystic sages over two thousand years ago. Many gave their lives to bring this knowledge to humanity, including Jesus of Nazareth.

Gnostics were among the very first—if not the
first—Christians yet they pre-dated Christianity. Varieties of Gnosticism can be found in ancient Egypt, Persia, the Greco-Roman mystery schools, and in Judaism and Islam. Gnosticism was less a religion than it was an approach to life and spirit. It acknowledged an underlying wholeness in the creation. It recognized that human beings are engaged in a universal struggle to unify their spiritually and psychologically fragmented parts with this wholeness. Many nuances of belief existed in groups labeled Gnostic, but common core convictions existed. The best way to delineate the Gnostic tradition is to describe their central beliefs.

What secrets did the Gnostics Know?
Gnosis (pronounced know-sis) means knowledge or to know from the Greek gnosein. The Gnostics were described as knowers claiming to be in possession of a hidden knowledge. So what did they know?

They knew that a human being is a composite creature with a physically-based personality existing in space and time and a spirit that exists beyond space/time. They knew that the (internal) spirit was eternal and whole while the (external) body and personality (ego) were temporary conditions. They knew that the gulf between these two forces—the confusion, the sense of separation and the feeling of ultimately being alone—was the source of human fragmentation and suffering.

Gnostics knew that the universal suffering of each human being cannot be resolved by church, state, family, or relationships, for these are things external to us. They are subject to the influence of the ego, the part of us that believes it is the true self. It’s giving our energy to this ego force that actually causes the suffering in the first place. Finally, the Gnostics knew that spirit is not an abstract idea or a silent voice. It is a constant communicator providing guidance and comfort through dreams, symbols, synchronicities, visions, altered awareness, and other phenomena we can experience. Unlike common prayer done from the egoic state (please give me this and I’ll be good), in an aware state you get answers. The trick is attuning to the proper frequency like finding the right radio station. This is done through a combination of strong desire, meditation, and cultivating heart-centered feelings of love and good will.

So, the knowledge Gnostics spoke of was not theoretical or intellectual knowledge held in the mind, but knowledge derived from experience, subjective experience gained in internal meditative states. Because this experience connects us with the whole, it taps into universal archetypes from what Jung called the collective unconscious. Therefore, information is available to all of us from a transcendent level. The irony is that all this subjective activity leads to true objectivity because it taps into the ground source of our reality, the source of our thoughts and our feelings, in an undiluted, undistorted form.

[….]

Matter, Soul, and the Matrix of Illusion
But what is it that keeps spirit trapped in the earth plane? Many Gnostics believed that the material world was the creation of inferior cosmic forces. In fact, some believed that the jealous, bloodthirsty creator god of the Old Testament was an inferior god who came into being through an “accident,” and proceeded to create the flawed cosmos in his ignorance of the true, loving, transcendent God above him. This lower god and his angels were identified as representing the forces that retarded human potential. Their influence inhibited our ability to awaken to an enlightened state of recognizing our origin and destiny, which is oneness with the True God of all things. The particular stream of Gnosticism that held this view of the biblical god and of the inherently evil nature of matter was not universal and could be the topic of a whole other discourse.

The common element for Gnosticism, however, was that transpersonal forces , which were defined in differing ways, operate through human beings to keep us separated from our divine inner nature. Because of this separation we do not see reality for what it is, but rather we live in a world of illusion, of false perceptions perpetuated by the retardant forces operating through our egos.

The Secret Knowledge of the Christ?
Salvation for the Gnostics came from spiritual knowledge rather than blind faith. Gnostics spoke of possessing a hidden knowledge concerning creation, salvation, and resurrection. This knowledge was a secret oral teaching handed down from Jesus to the apostles. To gain this hidden wisdom one first had to receive the public teachings of Jesus, which would probably have approximated the typical orthodox understanding of churchgoers today.

The public or orthodox Church was open to anyone who followed the public faith and rituals that had evolved in the increasingly male, hierarchical outer Church. How valid was the Gnostic claim of possessing the secret teachings of Jesus? Let’s look at statements from the revered early orthodox Church Fathers and from the canonical gospels themselves then you be the judge.

Clement of Alexandria (c. 150-211 AD) headed the respected Catechetical School of Alexandria, Egypt. Clement cited certain activities of St. Mark, the gospel author and secretary of St. Peter, claiming that:

“As for Mark, then, during Peter’s stay in Rome he wrote an account of the Lord’s doings, not, however, declaring all of them, nor yet hinting at the secret ones, but selecting what he thought most useful for increasing the faith of those who were being instructed. But when Peter died a martyr, Mark came over to Alexandria, bringing both his own notes and those of Peter, from which he transferred to his former book the things suitable to whatever makes for progress toward knowledge. Thus he composed a more spiritual Gospel for the use of those who were being perfected. Nevertheless, he yet did not divulge the things not to be uttered, nor did he write down the hierophantic teaching of the Lord, but to the stories already written he added yet others and, moreover, brought in certain sayings of which he knew the interpretation would, as a mystagogue, lead the hearers into the innermost sanctuary of that truth hidden by seven veils.” Though a few have disputed the authenticity of this letter, it has never been disproved. In other writings Clement said, “And the gnosis itself is that which has descended by transmission to a few, having been imparted unwritten by the apostles.” (Stromata, Book VI, Chap. VII).

From Clement’s protégé, the brilliant Church Father Origen: “[Jesus] conversed with His disciples in private, and especially in their sacred retreats, concerning the Gospel of God; but the words which He uttered have not been preserved, because it appeared to the evangelists that they could not be adequately conveyed to the multitude in writing or in speech… and they saw… what things were to be committed to writing, and how this was to be done, and what was by no means to be written to the multitude, and what was to be expressed in words, and what was not to be so conveyed.” (Contra Celsus, Chap. VI. 18)

From the Gospel of Mark: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, ‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding…’” (Mark 4:11-12)

From Matthew: “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.” (Matt. 13:11-12)

From Corinthians: “We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature . . . No, we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.” (1 Cor. 2:6-8)

From What is Gnosticism? notes on Karen L King’s What is Gnosticism?

[….]

The seed was, and always is, Gnosis or knowledge. The shell is orthodox Christianity, which formed out of darkness around the seed, and did not receive or understand it, and is known as belief. “Gnosticism” is a term invented by the shell to resist and negate the teachings and message of Jesus.

[….]

Out of the empty space left by the death of preconceptions, and the hanging question, What is Gnosticism? we can ask, what is being repressed? What have our psychological defenses been defending against, all this time? Why is knowledge labeled “heresy?” Scholarship appears to be coming very close to the seed of the truth, if it only had an adequate psychohistory and a realization of the container and the contained.

Now we’ll take a look at Gnosticism from the New World Encyclopedia

[….]

Gnosticism was widespread within the early Christian church until the gnostics were expelled in the second and third centuries C.E. Gnosticism was one of the first doctrines to be specifically declared a heresy and gnostic movements were often persecuted as a result. Gnostic groups also suffered under Islamic regimes. The response of orthodoxy to gnosticism significantly defined the evolution of Christian doctrine and church order. After gnostic and orthodox Christianity parted, gnostic Christianity continued as a separate movement in some areas for centuries. However some modern theologians think that several gnostic doctrines were absorbed by Christianity. Gnosticism has reappeared in various forms throughout history and into the contemporary era.

[….]

Gnosticism can be viewed as one of the three main branches of early Christianity. The others are Jewish Christianity, which was practiced by the disciples of Jesus; and Pauline Christianity, which rejected Jewish traditions. German biblical historian Adolf von Harnack said that while Paul’s teachings represented the hellenization of the original Jewish Christianity, gnosticism represented its “extreme hellenization.”

For some time, Pauline Christianity and gnostic Christianity coexisted. Gradually, the teachings of the two groups appear to have become more distinct. Certain of Paul’s letters teach concepts in accord with gnostic teaching—such as the existence of a “god of this world” who has blinded unbelievers (2 Cor. 4:4), the superiority of the spiritual man over the man of flesh (Rom. 8:5), and the existence of secret spiritual teachings that could not be shared with Christians who were not yet advanced enough to receive them (1 Cor. 3:1-2). So too, the Gospels speak of Christ as a pre-existent being of light (John 1:3-5), the triumph of light over darkness within the believer (Luke 11:36), and the devil as the ruler of the material world (Luke 4:6). Gnostic teachers made great use both of Paul’s letters and the gospels, especially Luke and John.

Later Christian scriptures, however, directly attack gnosticism.

The Way: Jesus’ Hidden Message

‘The Way’ will reveal the major alterations made to the Bible, theological and historical coverups – all part of the Great Deception. ‘The Way’ series will also reveal the true meaning of Jesus’ message and how to reach spiritual perfection.

This is not intended to shake your faith, or prove God isn’t real. God is very real. This is simply to help point out the errors the Catholic Church inserted into the text. The institutionalized Church and the canonized Bible are the Great Deception. No matter how hard the early Catholics tried to alter the text, Truth remains. Clues to the true story are hidden in the lies. The Light hidden within the Darkness. As a minister of Christ and follower of ‘The Way’, it is my job to defend Truth and present it to the world. I give you the facts, it is up to you to look into it yourself. Don’t believe it because I say it, believe it because you see it to be true.

Before you read any further, it must be understood I am not attacking God, but defending Him. I am not attacking His Word, but revealing it. I am not seeking to destroy His way, but to preserve it. I am a follower of Yeshua, defender of The Way.

The Way: Is Yahweh/Jehovah Satan? | The Way: Two Gods in the Old Testament | The Way: Yahweh, the amalgamated Enlil and Enki | The Way: Jesus, the Serpent?

Now that we have glimpsed into the errors taught about the Old Testament and the serpent, let’s now look at Yeshua’s/Jesus’ message.

Many claim they’re following Jesus. The question is are they? Do Christians actually understand what Jesus actually taught? The simple answer is an astounding NO.

What were/are Jesus’ teachings?

Jesus preached love

Jesus’ teachings, overall, hang on the two commands to love your God above all else and to love your neighbor as yourself. Anyone who reads the Bible can see this, but they miss a much larger and broader picture.

People say Jesus is love. Because of this, damnation is rarely preached and alnost never taken seriously. People believe anyone can reach eternal life, whether or not they follow Jesus. Many today also feel because Jesus came to save us from our sins, they can do whatever and simply repent every Sunday (whether directly to God or through a man they wrongfully call “Father”).

Jesus, today, is also idolized. Christianity became ‘ABOUT’ Jesus instead of ‘OF’ Jesus.

Jesus specifically and explicitly stated not to call any Father except our Father in Heaven, not to have any idols before God, and most importantly, to follow Him. Most Christians today break all these commands. They call their spiritual leader “Father”, turned Jesus into an idol, and due to idolizing Him, they cannot follow Him.

John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Many are also “literalists”. By this, I mean that they take everything, even the symbolical, as literal. If everything was to be literal, why then preceed or proceed certian remarks with the statement “Those who have ears to hear, let them hear. Those who have eyes to see, let them see.”? The answer is simple. It is because those statements, or parables, are in code. The only individuals who would then understand are those who knew the code.

The code was understood by those who were sincerely seeking spiritual wisdom, and therefore the spirit of God within translated the message for the individual. Much like an english speaker who understands spanish. You hear “No hablas ingles” and your brain tells you “I don’t speak english”.

One also cannot love their neighbor as themself if they don’t love themself. One cannot love oneself until one first understands themself and knows themself. The same applies to loving God.

Jesus was a nationalist freedom-fighter

I open with a Q&A from OuterNationalist.net in Who is the real Jesus Christ? where they interview historian Michael Calum.

Q) What elements did you mention in
your book, that shaped up Jesus’ character, mindset and principles? Was it the upbringing in occupation that made him an angry young man or what some people call, a radical?

The present is the key to the past here. If you occupy another country and attempt to downgrade or to replace its culture, religion etc, you will, at some point, encounter a faction who are not simply going to ‘sit back and take it!’ Yeshua-bar-Yosef put together a cadre of such like-minded people – and what an impact they’ve had on history!

Q) If Jesus was a radical, how could he say “Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also” (Matthew 5:38-39). He also says: “Put your sword back into its place; for all who take the sword will perish by the sword” (Matthew 26:52)? Do you believe these are his words and if they’re, what is the context of them?

If Yeshua ever really did utter the words of Matthew 5-7, the Sermon on the Mount as its popularly known as, then its intended recipients would have been exclusively Jewish. As a manifesto for life, it’s pretty good stuff. But could the same person really have been arrested, with followers armed with ‘two blades’ according to Scripture and crucified as an insurgent? He was certainly involved in a violent uprising against Rome, the New Testament is quite clear about that.

Q) As a specialist of 6 ancient languages and an expert on 1st century sources and history, what kind of society Jesus envisioned and struggled to establish?

Yeshua, I think, sought freedom of expression, worship and culture for his people, the Jews. He was unquestionably a religious zealot, an extremist, but sometimes it takes that type of mind set to tackle powerful opposition. Churchill could be termed as a democratic extremist, I suppose, but he was the right man at the right time to confront Nazism.

Q) If Jesus was against the Roman occupation and got killed while resisting the tyranny of the Romans in Jerusalem, do you think he will resist today’s foreign occupations in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan with same zeal and vigour?

I am confident that the Yeshua bar Yosef of history would not have taken it lying down.

As a member of what the 1st Century historian and chronicler Flavius Josephus terms ‘The Fourth Philosophy’ he avowed that loyalty to God, Yahweh, came before any other allegiance, even family and friends. This man got his hands dirty, lived in a matrix of safe houses and caves, according to the New Testament and had even arranged to meet his band back in the Galilean mountains after the uprising at Passover.

Jesus clearly states that He came for His people. He sent the Apostles to the lost tribes of Israel before the non-Israelites. He preached to be loving and respectful to your family and neighbors. These are nationalist traits. He did not, in any way, promote, or otherwise advocate for, internationalism or what is today understood as the “New World Order”. He was in opposition to oppression, both religiously and politically.

Many statements that show this have been removed from the Bible – being replaced by other verses, while others have been twisted out of context. Any individual who wishes to oppress it’s people cannot afford the spirit of freedom to thrive amongst the people they wish to tame. This is why the Catholic Church altered the Bible, burned all “unauthorized” writings of Jesus’ true teachings, and murdered those who wouldn’t step in line during a 400yr long campaign spanning from approximately 301AD to 701AD.

Jesus more or less stated to do what’s necessary to stay within the current national laws, and using the oppressors own laws against them, peacefully revolt resorting to violence only when absolutely necessary – such as self-defense.

For additional reading, I suggest The Historical Jesus Was Crucified For Being A Revolutionary and Jesus Was a Rebel and a Bandit. What Made Him Also the Christian Son of God?.

Errors In Modern Christianity Teachings

Sacrificial Atonement

Many are taught, and believe, that Jesus died for our sins. I will show you by quoting other texts and modern sources, as well as the Bible, that this is not so. Jesus came to set us free from tyranny. A tyranny man imposes on himself by calling it sin.

First, let’s see what the Bible says:

1 Peter 3:18 – For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

1 John 2:2 – And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world.

1 John 3:16 – Hereby perceive we the love [of
God], because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down [our] lives for the brethren.

2 Corinthians 5:21 – For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

These are all statements that were made, implying Jesus died for our sins. But what does Jesus say?

From the Bible:

John 8:24 – I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins.

Jesus said you, if you don’t believe in Him, you will die in your sins. He does not say that He came to take your place.

From the Gospel Of Peace:

“Happy are those that persevere to the end, for the devils of Satan write all your evil deeds in a book, in the book of your body and your spirit. I tell you truly, there is not one sinful deed, but it is written, even from the beginning of the world, before our Heavenly Father. For you may escape the laws made by kings, but the laws of your God, these may none of the Sons of Man escape. And when you come before the face of God, the devils of Satan bear witness against you with your deed, and God sees your sins written in the book of your body and of your spirit and is sad in his heart. But if you repent of your sins, and by fasting and prayer you seek the angels of God, then each day that you continue to fast and to pray, God’s angels blot out one year of your evil deeds from the book of your body and your spirit. And when the last page is also blotted out and cleansed from all your sins, you stand before the face of God, and God rejoices in his heart and forgets all your sins. He frees you from the clutches of Satan and from suffering; he takes you within his house and commands that all his servants, all his angels serve you. Long life does he give you, and you shall never see disease. And if. thenceforward, instead of sinning, you pass your days in doing good deeds, then the angels of God shall write all your good deeds in the book of your body and of your spirit. I tell you truly, no good deed remains unwritten before God, not from the beginning of the world. For from your kings and your governors you may wait in vain for your reward, but never do your good deeds want their reward from God.”

The most misinterpreted verse of all time:

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

People suggest this verse means Jesus was here specifically to die for us. Why would a loving God sacrifice anyone to cleanse anybody of sin? He wouldn’t. Jesus came to save us from oppression. If you can free yourself spiritually, you can free yourself physically as well. Tyrants can’t control a populace that only recognizes authority from above. Man is of this world, God is above.

Verses have been twisted out of context, and others added to the Bible, in order to keep us obedient. It also gives the true evil ones, the true sinners, a sense of relief under the false pretense a higher entity has cleansed them of all responsibility for said sinners before they were even born.

The Rapture

The rapture was not a thought in original Christians minds, nor institutionalized Christians minds, until the 1800’s. View the below series for information on the deception of the rapture.

666

I quote from Numerology of 666: Is it really such an evil number? from PsychicsUniverse.com

The Many Interpretations and Representations of 666

Although most of us know about 666 from Christianity and the Bible, there are many other interpretations for this number. In some spiritual circles, 666 is a triple number of 6, a feminine number representing home and family, idealism and loyalty. As a triple number it has three times the power of a typical 6, meaning even greater energy.

Among some pagan cultures, 666 is actually symbolic of goddess energy—one number 6 for each aspect of the goddess—maiden, mother and crone. Who knows? Maybe 666 became associated with evil due to some ancient male writer’s fear of women.

In other philosophies, 666 refers not to the Mark of the Beast, but to humanity. According to researcher Clyde Lewis, he reminds us that we are carbon-based living units, which reduces us to 6 protons, 6 neutrons and 6 electrons or 666. Perhaps mankind is the so-called beast. Some biblical interpreters would agree, citing that Revelations 13:18 should be translated as “the number of man” plural instead of the “number of a man” singular.

According to ancient Jewish mysticism known as Kabbalah, 666 is a holy number. It represents creation and the physical universe. In the Torah, God creates the world in 6 days.

There are also 6 cardinal directions emanating from a central point in the universal plane—north, south, east, west, above and below. All physical space and objects adhere to these dimensions. Repeating the number 6 three times emphasizes the power, strength and perfection of creation.

Finally, 666 has long been associated with the Antichrist or an evil man of power. Using gematria where letters are translated into numerical values, many historians and futurists have tried to figure out who this person is. It has often been said that the Roman Emperor Nero’s name added up to 666. He was obviously the devil incarnate to many early Christians that suffered under his persecution. Yet Nero wasn’t the only one accused of being the Antichrist, many have claimed former President George W. Bush’s name also adds up to 666. And finally there is the self-proclaimed 666 Beast, the famous occultist Aleister Crowley. Apparently there is no monopoly on the number 666.

The Devil in Us All

Esoterically speaking, 666 can also symbolize humanity at its lowest level of imperfection. 6 can represent the material world and tripling it signifies we are too focused on the material and thus neglecting our spiritual nature. That obviously leads us down the wrong path.

Starting with materialism, we can slide down a slippery slope into greed, selfishness and a multitude of other sins. 666 can remind us that we all have a potential devil inside.

Whether you fear this controversial number or not, there is no denying its many meanings—especially the good ones. Maybe 666 really isn’t so evil after all!

Conclusion

Jesus has been largely misrepresented, His teachings ignored and others attributed to Him. Jesus went from being a leader to an idol. Christianity went from being of Jesus to about Jesus.

To conclude, I leave you with quotes from Jesus’ True Message by Mark Goodman

[….]

But if you really want to know why Jesus died, I will tell you it was the consciousness of the time and place in which he lived — a consciousness he rejected. It was a state of consciousness perpetuated by fear and silence in the face of corruption and injustice that kept all people of his time in spiritual poverty. That state of consciousness still exists today, right here, right now. A consciousness that silently proclaims… live by and accept my rules and reality… or suffer the consequences.

The sin for which he died was the sin of succumbing to, or making choices that perpetuate, one’s subservience to undeserved power, hypocrisy, and injustice — the sin, if you will, of denying yourself the right to be yourself.

The story of Jesus speaks for itself, eloquently in fact, as to what his life was about. As blatant and clear as his message was, it is all but lost in the ruins of what others teach in his name. His life was about changing the state of consciousness he rejected. It was about freedom — something he was willing to die for, and did die for… the freedom to hear the truth, to speak the truth, and the freedom to live the truth as one understands it to be…the freedom to be yourself and to fulfill the responsibilities that come with freedom…including having the humility to know and/or to think you know something, without forcing others to believe as you do; for all people have an equal right to hold and express their truth as long as they don’t impose that truth on anyone else.  You are free if you are not afraid to be who you are; and free if you are not afraid to let others be who they are…providing neither you, nor they, are engaged in forcibly trying to change or enslave anyone else. Freedom comes with responsibilities.

Jesus saw injustice and hypocrisy and named it for what it was… despite knowing that he would be persecuted for doing so. Most of his followers, and everyone else, watched in silence as he was carted away and hung on a cross for the crime of demonstrating how to live in freedom.

He encouraged others not to be enslaved by the consciousness of their times — not to cower in fear as they lived their lives in the shadow of despotic rule. Jesus’ message is, that you will never know freedom until and unless you are willing to strive for it, and maybe sometimes die for it. He also talked about what it means to live in freedom… to live honorably, faithful to your ideals, while having compassion and respect for the dignity of others, without hypocrisy — for that is where following the truth will lead you… if you follow it with integrity.

[….]

If Jesus were here today he would tell us… “If
you want to know what freedom is, read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Strive for and adhere honorably to these truths and you will know what to do, what to believe in, to achieve your freedom.”

Those in power will tell you that those rights are already yours… even though they who tell you this are the very hypocrites plotting to make sure those rights never will be… yours.

Jesus didn’t go to church. Jesus never told you he wanted to be worshipped. Jesus never told you that if you pray to him, that one day he will come back and save you.

What he said was, “I will show you what freedom is and how to win it for yourself. Believe in me, follow my example and freedom will be yours. Do not kill.  Do not cheat, judge, or persecute others. Do unto them as you would have them do unto you. Do not sacrifice your truth. Live in freedom. Pay your taxes so that your government can function honorably as it should. But do not give away or let anyone take what is rightfully yours, for that is God’s gift to you and yours to have forever.  Learn to live without fear, in spite of fear. Honor your country by giving your country its due; honor God by giving God His due, which is to say, live your freedom and your truth.  My life is my teaching. I will die that you might live… if you believe what I tell you and in what I stand for.”

Maybe he didn’t use these exact words, but this, in essence, is what he said. His life and how he lived it was his message. Those few who followed in his footsteps often ended up as he did. That’s why so few follow in his footsteps.

The truth is, to change the consciousness, it probably isn’t necessary to sacrifice your life as he did. One person alone cannot change the consciousness.  But one person can follow the path and help lead the way. And everyone who takes the path… adds weight to that side of the scale until one day a critical mass is achieved, the scale tilts, and the consciousness shifts in a new direction.

Anyone who strives to live honorably, stands up or speaks out for justice, adds their example and understanding to the consciousness until eventually the consciousness shifts in the direction of justice.

Sometimes the risk of doing so is more or less dangerous than at other times, but every act of courage makes a difference. Many died to secure the freedoms we thought we had won once and for all. Now we know there is no “once and for all.” We have to be vigilant… we have to water the flowers every day and pull the weeds when they show up where they don’t belong. If we don’t rid ourselves of the weeds, eventually they will take over the whole garden. And every day we postpone the difficult task of getting rid of the weeds, makes it that much harder to get rid of them when we finally get to it.

Make no mistake… those who lust after money and power will not willingly give up trying to take from you what is rightfully yours.

They will hold onto their money and power with all their strength.  Many would rather you starve and/or die, than modify their attitude or goals to allow you to live in freedom too. They will lie to you. They will cheat you. They will persecute those who get in their way.

They will call you traitor, or terrorist; they will slander your name with their lies. They will diminish your efforts any way they can; they will tell half truths to undermine what you stand for and what you have to say. And if they cannot scuttle you with slander, they will try to buy you off. And if they can’t buy you off they will buy off the people you have chosen to represent you. All their skill and power will be focused on marginalizing your power, your hopes, your aspirations, and the aspirations you have for your children. And if all that fails they will threaten you, persecute you, incarcerate you, torture you, kill you, telling their hired mercenaries that it is right, proper, and noble to get rid of you… for you are not a patriot, not one of ‘them’.

In order to win your freedom, one day you might have to put your life on the line…because they will stop at nothing if you threaten their ambitions. Look around the world… where did all the dead and mutilated bodies come from. After all these centuries, why can’t we demonstrate any more wisdom than this?

[….]

The reality is, if you won’t defend the rights of others, one day there will be no one left to defend your rights when they come to take the rest of yours away. You know this is true, but still… “I have my job you know, and my car, and my computer, and my TV, and my rent, and my life. Why should I risk all that for people I don’t even know or care about?”

Well, Jesus never told you to go to church and pray for him to come back and save you from your fate, although it is understandable why you do it. And, I suppose that when the time comes, if you go to your place of worship not just on Sunday, but every day, instead of going to work, until you either starve to death or win your freedom… well, that might work. For their paid mercenaries might one day get the picture and begin to understand that by making war on you, who want only to be free, they will be making war on their own hopes and dreams as well. Maybe in that moment of awareness they will put their guns down or turn them around and point them at the real enemy.

Still, how will you ever win back your freedom if, like sheep, you are not even aware of what you’ve lost in the first place?

If Jesus showed up one day would he recognize his teachings in you? Would you recognize him, based on how you think he would express himself?

We say we love our children and yet we send them off to war to fight and kill and die, telling ourselves and them that they are fighting so that we might live in freedom…even when the battle they are asked to fight makes no sense at all.  When we find it that easy to send our children into wars that should never be fought, that should be a clue that something is wrong.

For if we truly loved our children, we would not send them to kill and die; but instead we would put our own lives on the line.  We would say “over my dead body will you take my child to kill and die so that you can steal from others what is not yours or mine to have.”

Maybe many of us would have to pay a heavy price or die before we would win our children’s freedom. Do we have the will, the wisdom, or the courage to do what we ask our children to do in the name of freedom?

Jesus told us how to be. He talked the talk, and walked the walk. His life was his teaching. Too bad we turned his simplicity into an endless complicated liturgy… that we might be distracted from the truth and the responsibility of courageously seeking the truth so that we might live it.

Most who claim they follow him, don’t really. They never had his commitment, his determination, the conviction of his love. Some become the demagogues who to this day twist and rearrange his message to suit their own interests.  Some people volunteer their children into becoming Christian soldiers. Go to battle, lust for war, believe in lies, pray to God to help you kill some invented enemy before that enemy kills you. It takes a lot of skill at twisting words and meanings to attribute such an agenda to Jesus.

But there are those who really do try to follow his teachings. There is hope yet.

[….]

Love the truth, seek the truth. For one day,
the truth shall set you free.

Those who call the Bible the holy book have divided themselves into various communities all claiming to worship Jesus. He never wanted to be worshipped. All he wanted was to teach and for us to learn… how to be honest, decent, courageous, loving, human beings.

The Way: Jesus, The Serpent?

‘The Way’ will reveal the major alterations made to the Bible, theological and historical coverups – all part of the Great Deception. ‘The Way’ series will also reveal the true meaning of Jesus’ message and how to reach spiritual perfection.

This is not intended to shake your faith, or prove God isn’t real. God is very real. This is simply to help point out the errors the Catholic Church inserted into the text. The institutionalized Church and the canonized Bible are the Great Deception. No matter how hard the early Catholics tried to alter the text, Truth remains. Clues to the true story are hidden in the lies. The Light hidden within the Darkness. As a minister of Christ and follower of ‘The Way’, it is my job to defend Truth and present it to the world. I give you the facts, it is up to you to look into it yourself. Don’t believe it because I say it, believe it because you see it to be true.

Before you read any further, it must be understood I am not attacking God, but defending Him. I am not attacking His Word, but revealing it. I am not seeking to destroy His way, but to preserve it. I am a follower of Yeshua, defender of The Way.

The Way: Is Yahweh/Jehovah Satan? | The Way: Two Gods in the Old Testament | The Way: Yahweh, the amalgamated Enlil and Enki

In this fourth edition, we begin to transition from the Old Testament into the New Testament. We will see how the serpent is actually the good guy (or god) and that Yeshua/Jesus is the serpent. Sections of this edition include “Satan is NOT Lucifer nor the serpent”, “The Serpent: Symbol of Jesus/Yeshua”, “Characteristics of the Serpent”, “Characteristics of Jesus/Yeshua”, and “Is there a connection between Jesus/Yeshua and Enki?”

Satan is NOT Lucifer nor the serpent

Before it can be shown that the serpent is a symbol for Yeshua, we must first realize that Satan and Lucifer are not one and the same being.

A quote from Is Lucifer another name for Satan?

One of the most common misconceptions among Bible believers is that Lucifer is another name for Satan, based on a single occurrence of the word … the King James translation of Isaiah 14:12, which reads…
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!

However the name “Lucifer” does not exist in the Hebrew text, nor the Greek translation (The Septuagint), but was derived from Jerome’s 4th century AD translation of this verse into Latin. Lucifer is a Latin name, which could not exist in a Hebrew manuscript, written before Latin even existed.

[….]

The Hebrew term translated in the KJV as “O Lucifer, son of the morning” is Helel ben Shahar.. literally ‘Helel son of Shahar’. In the Babylonian / Canaanite religions, Helel which means to shine or to bear light, and Shalim, the god of dusk were twin brothers… sons of Shahar , the god of the dawn. Hence ‘Helel son of Shahar’

”Apparently these verses allude to a mythological story about a minor god (Helel son of Shachar) who tried to take over Zaphon, the mountain of the gods. His attempted coup failed and he was hurled down to the underworld. The king of Babylon is taunted for having similar unrealized delusions of grandeur…”

[….]

There is no doubt about the fact that Isaiah 14, when speaking of “Lucifer,” is referring to the king of Babylon, clearly portrayed as a human ruler.

And from Is “Lucifer” the Devil in Isaiah 14:12? we read:

In other words, ‘morning star’ or lucifer in the Latin Vulgate literally referred to Venus, but metaphorically would refer to earthly kings, emperors, and pagan deities. Peter thus may have chosen this word to show that the real morning star was Jesus, not Caesar. Isaiah 14:12 thus spoke of the Babylonian king as the morning star and thus predicted his fall.

Clearly Lucifer and Satan cannot be the same entity. Lucifer, which means “morning star, light bearer”, symbolized Venus and kings on Earth.

The Serpent: Symbol of Jesus/Yeshua

I open with a quote from a sermon given by Pastor Donald J.
Gettys of McDonald Road Seventh-day Adventist Church, titled Jesus Our Serpent

Believe it or not Jesus is our serpent in the
book of Numbers 21. Now this is an amazing story. Numbers 21:8,9. The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, he lived. What must the dying person behold to be saved? He had to look. He had to behold the serpent on the pole. The serpent! Do we dare compare a slithery slimy hissing snake to Jesus? I don’t like snakes. Do we compare a snake to Jesus? I shudder at the thought. Yet it’s here in the Bible.

Come over here to John 3, where The most famous verse in the entire Bible is preceded by two verses that not one in a hundred could guess their words. And they have to do with a snake. John 3:14-16 “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that everyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

So here the Bible compares Jesus to that bronze serpent on that pole. That’s unique, isn’t it. And then I read Desire of Ages by EG White, p. 174. “The lifting up of the bronze serpent “The lifting up of the brazen serpent was to teach Israel an important lesson….by looking upon the serpent their faith was shown. They knew that there was no virtue in the serpent itself, but it was a symbol of Christ;” Patriarch and Prophets, p. 430 – EG White. DA 431. Well, that is very clear, isn’t it. Was this serpent a symbol of Christ? Absolutely.

I understand many of you feel Jesus can’t possibly be the serpent. Something must be wrong here. It must be a metaphor, right? Not exactly. History has been altered. To show an alternate version, I quote from Genesis Revisited

This picture of Adam & Eve with the Serpent
can be misleading unless you have done the research. Most people would look at this picture and think that the Serpent is Satan, when in reality it represents God. It was God/Ea who wanted to teach the truth and it was Satan who wanted to prevent the human race from recovering spiritually.

As long as Mankind accepted their servant status, and obeyed their “masters” all of their physical needs would be met and they would be permitted to remain in their “paradise” indefinitely.

The Latin word for “apple” and for “evil” are identical (malum), the apple came to represent the forbidden fruit (Knowledge) of the Garden of Eden.  It is therefore often used to symbolize the fall into sin, or of sin itself.

The bible tells us that God commanded Adam & Eve not to eat of the fruit. The fruit is symbolic for knowledge. In the above picture, Eve is taking the fruit, then she and Adam eat it. Was it Satan who told her to eat of the fruit? Certainly the Serpent in the tree suggests that! But again, it is a misunderstanding. The Serpent is Prince Ea.

After EA created the human race he wanted to teach humanity truth in spirituality. But the other “gods” wanted to remain in control of the Adam.  EA formed an organization called “The Brotherhood of the Serpent/Snake.” Its original purpose was to educate the human race in spiritual truth.

The other “gods” didn’t want the human race to be free, all they wanted is to control the human race. So they taught falsehoods regarding Prince Ea. They taught that Ea was evil, calling him Satan, Prince of Darkness, evil encarnate etc etc, a bunch of lies! Ea was against the harsh treatment of the human race, he even spoke out against it.

Here is the pivotal moment in the history of mankind. Satan overthrew God/Ea and took control of the human race and spread lies, turning the Brotherhood of the Serpent against Ea. Satan fooled everybody and switched places with God. So the correct way of looking at the above picture is to see God in the tree as the Serpent and God, who had forbidden the learning of knowledge, as Satan. There is only one of the two, either God or Satan, who would lie or withhold information.

In “God”,..divine liar we read the following:

What people have been taught is a lie and it goes AGAINST biblical scripture, logic and common sense. If one studies the bible carefully they will realize that it does not reflect that the Serpent was evil and trying to deceive the human race.

The ancient writings of the bible reveal a lot of information as to what went on 6,000 years ago in Eden. Through logic and common sense we can show that those ancient writings of the bible reflect the end result which we all can see plainly in the modern world.

Genesis 2:9; And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

The knowledge of good and evil was part of what you see on this web site. Part is knowing that evil must disguise itself as good in order to fool its target. The tactics used by evil are easy to spot. Evil often takes the truth and mixes it with falsehoods to deceive.

Evil also withholds information as well:
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

The above passage tells us that it was “the LORD God” who told mankind NOT to eat of the fruit which is symbolic for knowledge. Why should learning that information be a sin? Why is the withholding of knowledge consistent with the way modern government withholds information? The withholding of information is evil, is it not?

The behavior “God” exhibited in Eden is perfectly consistent with what evil would have to do if its goal were to take over the human race and control it. This in itself is consistent with the Luciferic symbols found in Washington D.C. Government plays the biggest part in world control.  

The bible also specifically tells us that Satan controls this world:
In whom the god of this world [Satan] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. II Cor 4:4

The bible also warns us that Satan can disguise himself as God:
For even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.  II Corinthians 11:14-15

Satan disguised himself in Eden and took control of earth from God. We know this to be true because of the many writings made by top level Freemasons which praise Lucifer. This explains one of the reasons why they chose the Luciferic layout for Washington D.C.  We can also see that Freemasonry dominates the POWER seats within government and big business.

The Serpent who was trying to teach mankind the knowledge of good and evil was not Satan. The Serpent was someone labeled evil by those who were taking over the human race. Prince EA was the Serpent, he was trying to liberate the human race from its bondage.

Many references to God in the Old Testament were not God but were the Elohim. They were gods of war. Christ even taught that the God of the Old Testament was not His Father.

[….]

The idea behind world control is slavery. The bible says the Adam was created to work for God. This isn’t the same God which is Christ’s Father either. It was the ELOHIM. It doesn’t take much to control an entire world especially when you had control of everybody’s education since the very beginning.

Many people are not aware that their Church is preaching falsehoods. Christians are a threat to Satan. Do you really think Satan would allow the Christian community to have the untainted truth?

After Christ left the world they went to work on His life story and what He taught. Rewriting even deleting His word.

The “original sin” was created to keep us away from knowledge, . . .

And now a quote from Wisdom of the Serpent by Jay Williams

Let me begin by asking an obvious question: “Who is this serpent who addresses the woman?” John Milton, of course, knew the answer implicitly. The serpent for Milton and most other Christian theologians of the past is obviously the Devil. Indeed, the whole Christian story has been seen as a struggle between God and Satan for the soul of humanity. The problem is that the concept of Satan does not emerge in the recorded thought of Israel until long after this part of Genesis was written. Indeed, when Satan first appears as a character in the book of Job he is God’s emissary and tester, not his enemy. The same seems true for the other references to Satan in the Hebrew Scriptures (1 Chron. 21.1, Zech. 3.1-2). To think of the serpent as Satan is, therefore, highly anachronistic. It is to impose upon Hebrew Scripture a later, Christian understanding.

Ancient peoples did not understand the serpent as some deceitful embodiment of evil. On the contrary, the serpent was, and in some cultures still is, regarded as the source of great wisdom, for the serpent can shed its skin and go on living. Like the butterfly which bursts out of its own chrysalis to new life, the serpent was often regarded as a symbol of immortality. And more, perhaps because of this intimation of new life, the serpent was frequently regarded in the ancient world as the messenger from the great Goddess and the guardian of her sacred precincts (see Eliade, Patterns 164-74; Sinha 45, 56).

Characteristics of The Serpent

Historically, serpents and snakes represent fertility or a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin through sloughing , they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. Ouroboros is an ancient symbol of a serpent eating its own tail that represents the perpetual cyclic renewal of life, the eternal return, and the cycle of life, death and rebirth , leading to immortality.

The serpent, when forming a ring with its tail in its mouth, is a clear and widespread symbol of the “All-in-All”, the totality of existence, infinity and the cyclic nature of the cosmos. The most common being the Ouroboros mentioned above.

Serpents have also symbolized wisdom and freedom.

Characteristics of Jesus/Yeshua

Born, died, and resurrected

Taught wisdom through His parables

A charismatic healer:
The healing miracles include cures for physical ailments, exorcisms, and resurrections of the dead.

Has power over nature:
The nature miracles show Jesus’ power over nature, and include turning water into wine , walking on water, and calming a storm, among others.

Changes in appearance:
The account of the Transfiguration appears in Matthew 17:1–9 , Mark 9:2–8, and Luke 9:28–36. Jesus takes Peter and two other apostles up an unnamed mountain, where “he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became dazzling white.”

Is there a connection between Jesus/Yeshua and Enki?

As we saw in “The Way: Yahweh, the amalgamated Enlil and Enki”

ENKI

God of the Sweet Waters, Crafts and Wisdom

Enki´s watery power never dies and is a living, joyous force.

Enki is the god of ritual lustration and purification from polluting evil.

Enki was peaceful and loving, never over-reacting

The arts of civilisation, the institutions and crafts, as well as economies, are Enki´s gifts to humanity.

He aligns with humankind outwitting Enlil in the Flood myth, and the proud Lord Air is made to revise his ways in the same myth. Enki first refuses to send the flood to exterminate humans and advises Atrahasis/Ziusudra/Utnapishtim to build a boat, the predecessor of Noah´s Ark, and thus save the living from utter destruction.

Enki is the mediator whose compassion and sense of humor breaks the wrath of Enlil

Enki teaches us to see the qualities in men and in nature so that we can better judge our deeds and our fates

Based on comparing the characteristics of Yeshua and Enki, and keeping in mind what we know of Enki from previous editions of ‘The Way’, I feel it is safe to conclude that it is possible Yeshua is in fact Enki and the “Father in Heaven” Yeshua/Jesus speaks of is Anu (the father of Enki) or that Jesus is Enki.

Conclusion

It should be clear at this point, that the Old Testament is riddled with lies and corruption. Man has fallen for the Great Deception as far back as the Old Testament days. Satan, by Yeshua’s own admission, is god pf this world. If Satan is god of this world, would he not portray himself to be god in the Bible? He does, for Satan is actually Yahweh (as pointed out in the first edition). Satan, being a title, his real name is Enlil (as shown in the third edition).

Considering the lies that were told, and the fact Yahweh is Satan, it is safe to conclude then, that the serpent in Genesis is our true god Enki. Enki, as the serpent, has been defamed and persecuted like none else. Enki was considered a “Serpent God” who was symbolized by the serpent and the fish.

Jesus was also symbolized by the fish. Like Enki, Jesus is about peace. Like Enki, Jesus came to free us from bondage. Like Enki, Jesus is symbolized by “living water”. Like Enki, Jesus preached a spiritual wisdom only the few, “those who have ears to hear…” “those who have eyes to see…”, can understand.

With this in mind, it is entirely possible that Yeshua/Jesus was the serpent in Genesis. Or at the very least, may be considered a “Serpent God”, having the serpent as a symbol.

Anyone thinking this is heretical, consider the following. Why would God not want us to have knowledge of good and evil? Why would God not want us to have knowledge of who and what we are? Why would God want us to fear him?

The answer is simple. With knowledge we can reason and understand. If we can reason and understand, we may come to the realization of our bondage and servitude; and attempt to break free of such bondage and servitude. In other words, if we have knowledge, we couldn’t possibly remain obedient little slaves.

“Seek and ye shall find” for the “truth shall set you free”.

‘The Way’ will reveal the major alterations made to the Bible, theological and historical coverups – all part of the Great Deception. ‘The Way’ series will also reveal the true meaning of Jesus’ message and how to reach spiritual perfection.

This is not intended to shake your faith, or prove God isn’t real. God is very real. This is simply to help point out the errors the Catholic Church inserted into the text. The institutionalized Church and the canonized Bible are the Great Deception. No matter how hard the early Catholics tried to alter the text, Truth remains. Clues to the true story are hidden in the lies. The Light hidden within the Darkness. As a minister of Christ and follower of ‘The Way’, it is my job to defend Truth and present it to the world. I give you the facts, it is up to you to look into it yourself. Don’t believe it because I say it, believe it because you see it to be true.

Before you read any further, it must be understood I am not attacking God, but defending Him. I am not attacking His Word, but revealing it. I am not seeking to destroy His way, but to preserve it. I am a follower of Yeshua, defender of The Way.

The Way: Is Yahweh/Jehovah Satan? | The Way: Two Gods in the Old Testament |

The Way: Yahweh, the amalgamated Enlil and Enki

In this edition, I show how Yahweh/Jehovah may be Enlil and Enki. Not one, but two gods amalgamated into one. Sections include “Enlil” (breakdown of Enlil’s attributes), “Enki” (breakdown of Enki’s attributes), “Yahweh” (breakdown of Yahweh’s attributes), “Yahweh as Enlil”, and “Yahweh as Enki”.

I only quote from one source, though many are used. There are countless verses in the Bible that may be utilized. However, I will only be stating the more well-known to prove the point. After reviewing the below information, the pattern will become evident as you read your Bible (regardless of translation).

ENLIL
Enlil’s temple was named “House of the Mountain”

Among the titles accorded to him are “king of lands”, “king of heaven and earth”, and “father of the gods”.

Enlil was also known as the god of weather. According to the Sumerians, Enlil helped create the humans, but then got tired of their noise and tried to kill them by sending a flood. A mortal known as Utnapishtim survived the flood through the help of another god, Ea/Enki

Enlil was a god of war and storms

Enlil accepted “first-fruit” offerings

Enlil was also known as Ellil or El

Enlil had a son who was named Sin

ENKI

God of the Sweet Waters, Crafts and Wisdom

Enki´s watery power never dies and is a living, joyous force.

Enki is the god of ritual lustration and purification from polluting evil.

Enki was peaceful and loving, never over-reacting

The arts of civilisation, the institutions and crafts, as well as economies, are Enki´s gifts to humanity.

He aligns with humankind outwitting Enlil in the Flood myth, and the proud Lord Air is made to revise his ways in the same myth. Enki first refuses to send the flood to exterminate humans and advises Atrahasis/Ziusudra/Utnapishtim to build a boat, the predecessor of Noah´s Ark, and thus save the living from utter destruction.

Enki is the mediator whose compassion and sense of humor breaks the wrath of Enlil

Enki teaches us to see the qualities in men and in nature so that we can better judge our deeds and our fates

Yahweh

In the oldest biblical literature (12th–11th centuries BCE), Yahweh is a typical ancient Near Eastern “divine warrior” who leads the heavenly army, a violent war-god

At a later period, Yahweh functioned as the dynastic cult (the god of the royal house), the royal courts promoting him as the supreme god over all others in the pantheon, notably Baal , El, and Asherah (the last of whom may have been his consort).

Over time, Yahwism became increasingly intolerant of rivals, and the royal court and temple promoted Yahweh as the god of the entire cosmos, possessing all the positive qualities previously attributed to the other gods and goddesses. With the work of Second Isaiah (the theoretical author of the second part of the Book of Isaiah) towards the end of the Babylonian exile (6th century BCE), the very existence of foreign gods was denied, and Yahweh was proclaimed as the creator of the cosmos and the true god of all the world.

In the Bible, Yahweh is Yahweh, Jehovah, Adonai (my Lord), LORD, GOD, and El

With his rise, Yahweh became identified with El to such an extent that El’s name became a generic word meaning simply “god”; Asherah became Yahweh’s consort, and Yahweh and Baal at first co-existed and later competed within the religion.

The powers of blessing (health, wealth, continuity, fertility) and salvation (forgiveness, victory, deliverance from oppression and threat) resided fully in Yahweh, and his will was communicated via oracle and prophetic vision or audition

As a member of the original Israelite pantheon Yahweh had his own consort, the goddess Asherah. The emergence of Yawheh-centred monotheism in ancient Israel has thus come to be seen as a late and gradual phenomenon, passing through several stages of development before consistent monotheism became the norm in the Babylonian Exile or even later.

Yahweh is seen as a “Father God”

The following is quoted from The True Name of God by The Truth Seekers

While the date and origins of the names are debatable, the character of Yahweh is certainly clear, although multifaceted in the biblical text.

· He is a storm god who speaks in the thunder, who hurls or shoots lightning (Exodus 19:16-19; 20:18; Psalm 18:14; Job 37:5; Amos 1:2; Habakkuk 3:11).
· He is a god of the mountains (Exodus 19; 1 Kings 20:3).
· Fire is both a sign of Yahweh’s presence and a weapon (Exodus 13:21; 1 Kings 18:38).
· He is a god of the desert (Judges 5:4).
· He has control over the waters of the earth – the sea (Exodus 14:21; Jonah),
· He has control over the rivers (Joshua 3:16-17),
· He has control over the rain (Genesis 2:5; 1 Kings 17).
· He is the giver of life and one who brings death.
· He is a god of war and of peace.

There are many aspects here that are characteristic of Enki/Ea who is the life-giving deity of fresh water, but there are also others which reflect the more violent nature of his brother Enlil (`Lord of the Air’) who was the head of the Mesopotamian pantheon, also known as Baal the Canaanite storm god and Seth, the Egyptian god of the desert. The god of Moses thus reflects an amalgam of deities.

[….]

The Bible also relates that Yahweh was called Baal by some Israelites
“And in that day, says the Lord, you will call me, ‘My Husband,’ and no longer will you call me, ‘My Ba’al.’ For I will remove the names of the Ba’als from her mouth, and they shall be mentioned by name no more.”
Hosea 2:16

If Yahweh was originally subordinate to El, it be could that the Israelites at first imagined him as a god of the same type as Canaanite Baal.

-Yahweh as did Baal also appeared as a storm-god.
-Yahweh like Baal first established his kingship over the world by subduing the unruly cosmic waters, symbolized by a serpent or a dragon.
-There are psalms that show Yahweh subduing the waters along with the dragons Leviathan and Rahab.
-Like Baal, Yahweh had been a god who had to fight the waters until they submitted to his will.
-Like Baal, Yahweh constantly sustained the ordered world.

Yahweh As Enlil

I open this section with a quote from Is Yahweh an Annunaki?. The author has a Gnostic Christian bias, through which exposes the characteristics of Enlil in Yahweh/Jehovah.

Who reads the Bible in an objective and unprejudiced way without blinders that fade out certain passages, will (or should…) become deeply indignant about the abominable cruelties described therein.

The “lord” guides his people to the “promised land”, but that land isn’t free. People already live there in various towns. Therefore the “lord” commands his people to mercilessly slaughter all of them.

In nearly all cases not even a child, a woman or an old man is spared, but they should completely all be killed, so that his people can live in:
“great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not, and houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full”.
(Deut 6:10-11)

With this, a veritable holocaust begins!

In one city after the other they murder and slaughter until no one is left. The only exception is in a few cases that they kidnap virgins. For what? It would certainly be naïve to claim that it would not be for sexual “services”.

When Moses by order of Yahweh could say as follows, he strongly disqualifies himself and his commissioner:
“And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host… which came from the battle. And Moses said unto them, ‘Have ye saved all the women alive? … Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves’”
(Num 31:14-18).

This rather looks like a mass human sacrifice for the “lord”…

For those who understand German I may suggest to read what the learned Karlheinz Deschner writes about this extremely blood-curdling common history of two world religions. Persons who regard themselves as Christians like to suggest that the victims would be “evil” people who lived in “sin”, and don’t want to understand how they this way betray Jesus’ teachings.

There can be no worse sin than to kill in the name of God (or of his messenger Christ)! And if one kills in the name of Yahweh, or by his order, this shows clearly enough that he cannot be the true god. Jesus taught us that who takes to the sword will be undone by the sword, and even to love our enemies.

When Yahweh rages as follows he demonstrates his fake divinity:
“And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate. …And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied. And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me; Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.”
(Lev 26:21-29)

The macho behavior began already before the exodus from Egypt. Yahweh sent Moses several times to the Pharaoh to request letting the Hebrews free.

The Pharaoh repeatedly declared that he would do that, but Yahweh the each time hardened his heart so that he, after all, refused:
“…for I have hardened his heart, and the
heart of his servants, that I might shew
these my signs before him” (Ex 10:1).

Yahweh insisted in showing his muscles and have all the ten plagues come over Egypt before he would let the Pharaoh allow the Hebrews to go. At last he went through Egypt and killed all innocent first-born! (Ex 11:5, 12:12, 12:29, 13:15)

For what did he want to demonstrate all this cruelty? In a similar way he hardened the hearts of the Hivites (living in the “promised Land”) so that they should not try to make piece with the Hebrews but meet them in battle so that they would be mercilessly destroyed (Josh 11:19.20).

Everyone should die!

Yahweh as Enki

The following is quoted from The True Name of God by The Truth Seekers.

From the Sumerian version, Enki who disagreed with his brother Enlil’s command to destroy all humans found a way to warn Utnapistim/Ziusudra.

‘Man of Shuruppak, son of Ubar-tutu: Tear down thy house, build a ship! Give up possessions, seek thou life!

Foreswear belongings, keep soul alive! Aboard ship take thou the seed of all living things; That ship thou shalt build – Her dimensions shall be to measure…

From the Bible, God determined to end all mankind then gives a reprieve and warns Noah.

Genesis 6:14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

Genesis 6:15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

After the flood, Utnapishtim/Ziusudra built an altar and offered a sacrifice.

From the Enuma Elish;
‘the gods smelled the savor, the gods smelled the sweet savor the gods crowded like flies about a sacrificer’

From the Bible;
Genesis 8:20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

At first when Enlil discovered Enki’s ploy of saving the Adamu he was furious. He soon relented after realizing that all livestock and produce had been destroyed in the flood and that Enki’s forethought had also prevented a disaster for the Anunnaki. Enlil was very forgiving after hunger set in and he partook of the burnt sacrifices offered by Utnapishtim/Zuisudra/Noah.

A pledge was then made to the Adamu by the Elohim as also by Yahweh to Noah, that never again would the Elohim order their destruction. It is a promise made to man that has been kept ever since (so far).

[….]

Moses then said to God, `Look, if I go to the Israelites and say to them, “The god of your ancestors has sent me to you,” and they say to me, “What is his name?” what am I to tell them? God said to Moses, `I am who I am’ .
Exodus 3:13-14

As we have learned, Enki (`Lord of the Earth’) was called Ea in Akkadian (East Semitic) – that is to say in the Babylonian tradition.

Scholars have determined that Ea was vocalized as ‘Eya’. So, when Moses stood before the burning bush and asked the name of the god of the mountain, did “God” really reply `I am who I am’ (Heb. Eyah asher eyah)?

This puzzling phrase has long perplexed many theologians here is our simple explanation.

The voice of God simply replied `Eyah asher Eyah’ – `I am (the one) who is called Eyah’ – the name of Ea in its West Semitic (Hebrew) form.

Some Scholars have simply failed to recognize (most often those with strong theological ties) that this is another of those characteristic puns in which the Old Testament abounds. `I am (Eyah) he who is called (asher) Ea (Eyah)’ is a classic biblical play on words.

It also explains God’s apparently nonsensical instruction:
`This is what you are to say to the Israelites, “I am has sent me to you” .

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the above statement makes no sense. The words properly translated are `Eyah has sent me to you’.

[….]

“It is Yahweh who giveth wisdom, out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding,” Proverbs 2:6, and it was He who granted wisdom beyond comparison to Solomon, as Enki had given the Wise Adapa.

Conclusion

Based on the evidence seen above, as well as the first two editions, I feel it is evident that Yahweh is an amalgamation of gods, as presented in the Bible Old Testament. However, Yahweh, in reality is Enlil, with the attributes of Enki later written in by the tribe of Judah. To suggest Yahweh in the Bible is a single being is equivalent to allowing yourself to continue being a victim of the Great Deception and subservient to a violent, pedophiliac, rather schizophrenic god.

With this information, it should be easy to see through the rest of Old Testament in which verses is Enlil and in which is Enki.

You cannot promote peace and justify war at the same time. You cannot promote family values and condone rape of children at the same time.

Yeshua came to free us from this delusion. It wasn’t until Paul, and Pauline Christianity, that we have the views we have today (as will be discussed in future editions of ‘The Way’). In the next edition we discuss the serpent.

In this second edition of ‘The Way’, we will see that there are actually two gods in the Old Testament warring with each other. These two gods, one for mankind and the other against, purposely written into a single being. We will see the identities of these two gods, how they’re mentioned in the Bible, and how they became known as a singular god. Sections include: “Who is Jehovah?”, “Evolution of Yahweh”, and “A More In-depth Look”.

I will be quoting from a few well researched sources. There are many more sources and ancient texts to backup, verify, and otherwise confirm the information presented. As I will be largely quoting from other sources, my commentary will be minimal. The information is being provided to you, it is up to you to do with it what you will. I believe two of the sources quoted are Gnostic and the third Christian.

Who is Jehovah?

To begin, I will continue about Yahweh/Jehovah, as previously discussed in the first edition The Way: Is Yahweh/Jehovah Satan?

I open by quoting from a Gnostic Wisdom Foundation article titled Jehovah:

Jehovah is the modern variation of the tetragrammaton YHWH, sometimes pronounced Yahweh. The pronunciation Yo-ho-wah is actually closer to the original. The other words associated with Jehovah are: Adonai, Lord and Elohim. Elohim is actually plural and refers to Gods, or Lords. In Genesis 3:22, after Adam and Eve partake of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the Lord says, “Behold, the man is become as one of us,” the “us” being the Elohim, the Lords of the Earth.

An interesting change takes place in the story of Genesis. The original creation story takes place with God as the creator in chapter 1. Chapter 2 begins the same way, until verse 4, where a new entity is introduced, the LORD God, who now claims to have made heaven and earth. This is the first lie. The second lie appears in the story of Adam and Eve.

The Lords of the Earth, the Elohim, were an ancient race of advanced beings that created modern man through the process of genetic manipulation and were revered as gods by the human societies they created. The fact remains that these beings were physical creatures that came into being long after the heavens and the earth were created. Claiming to have made the heavens and the earth to the human civilizations they created is simply further proof that these beings lied and manipulated humans for their own purposes. It is certainly not proof that they were any kind of god. To the contrary, it stands as a form of proof that they were NOT gods at all.

[…..]

The Gnostics in the time of Jesus knew full well that the old Lords of the Earth were not Gods. In the Gnostic document known as the Secret Gospel of John is the story of a false god creating the bodies of man, unable to bring them to life. The false god is told that he must breathe life into the bodies he has created. What the false god is not told, is that as he breathes into the body he has created, the true God, a God that is Spirit only, places a small speck of His own spirit into the body, giving it life. The false god is allowed to continue his own ego trip, believing that he has created life while the true God, the creator of all life,remains hidden, acting in the background.

Jesus reveals that truth in his confrontation with the Pharisees in John 8:44 when he tells them, “Ye are ofyourfather the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” Jesus was speaking of Jehovah, the Lord of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob.

The Old Testament combines two distinct individuals into one God, which stands as the most confusing aspect of understanding God. By separating the two individuals out into their original personalities, we can get a clearer view of what God really is. The two physical individuals were known as Enlil and Enki. They were half brothers: Enki, was the oldest, and Enlil, was the younger brother, but born of a mother with a higher social standing than Enki’s mother. Because of the higher social standing, Enlil was given over-all control of the civilizations here on planet Earth. Enlil thus became known as the Lord, God almighty, now called Jehovah.

Enlil authorized the genetic experiments that resulted in the eventual creation of modern man. Enlil was annoyedby the newly propagating race of humans and developed an anti-human attitude (mankind’s antagonist). Enki, having conceived of the race of man and being intimately involved in the genetic manipulation, viewed himself as the protector of man (mankind’s protagonist). By combining these two physical beings into a one God concept, God became both for and against mankind. God became botha loving God and an angry and jealous Godat the same time.

Enki was the member of the Elohim with a spiritual background; Enlil was not spiritualat all. Over time Enki came to the conclusion that mankind needed to know its true potential and started the mystery school system in ancient Egypt (circa 2750 BC). The Gnostic religion was the outer form of the mystery school system and was the primary recruiting ground for the members that later became known as the Great White Brotherhood. The organizationderived its name not from a particular race,but from its focus on a particular substance; the white powder of gold. Many races and nationalities were represented in the Great White Brotherhood.

Enlil, as the angry and jealous god of the Old Testament, Jehovah, waged a number of turf wars against the other Elohim, usinghumans to do the fighting. This resulted in the murder of hundreds of thousands of humans at the direction of Jehovah. The Lords of the Earth owned and controlled the land and used unsuspecting humans toexpand their influence in their endless squabbles among themselves. The Elohim, far from being a divine race, were little different from the world’s population today:constantly fighting for control of the land and the natural resources the land contains.

[…..]

Enki, through the mystery school system, taught mankind that there is a true God, a God of Spirit that is the true source of all life in the universe. A God based strictly on Love, Peace and Compassion. This is the God of which Jesus spoke, and is why Jesus left us with but a single commandment: to love one another. Each day we have a choice: we can serve and worship the memory of a physical being steeped in lies, manipulation, violence, murder and genocide, or we can serve the true God of Spirit, based on Love, Peace and Compassion. As Jesus said: God is Spirit, and what is born of Spirit, is spirit. You are a divine child of God. You are the living light of spirit. As Jesus told us in the Sermon on the Mount:youare the light of the world. By living our lives in Love, we bring ourselves closer to God, closer to the truth, and closer to the perfection God sees in each and every one of us.

Remember, in the end analysis: oneness is the only reality, truth is the only value, and Love is the only power.

Here we see that not only, as The Way: Is Yahweh/Jehovah Satan? shows, Jehovah is in fact a demiurge and known as Satan, but his true and most ancient identity being Enlil of the Elohim. A being that had a complete and blatant disregard for mankind. It was Enlil who chose to kill, enslave, and otherwise oppress mankind. It was Enlil/Jehovah that kept mankinds spiritual wisdom from us in an attempt to keep us from realizing and reaching our fullest potential. Enki, who refused to stand idly by and his creation be enslaved and systematically destroyed, made an attempt to reveal to us such wisdom and free us from the servitude and destruction of Enlil/Jehovah.

When the cuneiform tablets of the ancient Sumerians were uncovered in the mid-1800s from archaeological excavations in Nineveh, Nippur, Babylon, and elsewhere, the discoveries sent shockwaves around the world. Many Biblical scholars were greatly encouraged and believed that the Genesis accounts were finally vindicated. For them, it was obvious that the Sumerians had handed down, with a few distortions, memories of the same historical events that God had inspired Moses to record in Genesis. For other Biblical experts, however, the newly-discovered Sumerian texts were interpretedin a different way. Skeptical Biblical critics took the view that because the Sumerian texts predated the book of Genesis by 500-1000 years, then it was obvious that the Sumerian texts must be the authentic accounts. Both accounts were viewed by the critics as merely myths, and certainly not based on historical events, but because the Sumerian myths were older and it was assumed that “antiquity equals authenticity” then they had to be the true myths. The book of Genesis was then viewed as merely a distorted compilation or recollection of the Mesopotamian originals.  This interpretation of the relationship between Sumerian “myth” and the book of Genesis remains the dominant view in the academic world today.

Evolution of Yahweh/Jehovah

I open with a quotes of interest from The Truth Seekers article The True Name of God

[….]
Below are just a few parallels to digest(there are many, many more):
The Throne of God
Enki/Ea
Sits upon a throne decorated with pots from which flow two streams of water, indicating he is the source of the earth’s streams of freshwater.

Yahweh
Sits upon a throne portrayed as being over a stream of freshwater that leaves the temple in Jerusalem and travels eastward to the Dead Sea, rejuvenating it.

Many similar motifs can be found in:
The “Myth” of Adapa
Food conferring immortality, a god denying man immortality, the acquisition of forbidden knowledge.

The story of Genesis
Food conferring immortality, God denying man immortality, the acquisition of forbidden knowledge.

The Tower Of Babel
Enki/Ea
Confounded the language of the people of the earth.“Enki, the contender…En of cunning, the shrewd one of the land, sage of the gods, gifted in thinking, the En of Eridu,change the speech of their mouths, he having set up contention in it, in the human speech that had been one.”

Yahweh/El
Confounded man’s single language because of their hubris in building the Tower of Babel.

The Deluge
Enki/Ea
Warned Ziusudra (or Utnapishtim) of an impending Flood that would destroy the world and all of mankind. Telling him to save himself and the seeds of all living things by building a boat.

Yahweh/El
Warned Noah of an impending Flood that would destroy the world and all of mankind. Telling him to save himself and all the animals by building a boat.

[….]

The biblical version of the “Great Flood’s” happy ending is chock full of biblical contradictions. It begins by telling of man’s abominations including the corruption of the purity of the “Sons of God”.

A decision is reached to have all flesh perish.The same Deity rushes Noah in 7 days to build an Ark to save the seed of mankind and all living things. Why? Was the Deity’s purpose in this to defeat his own plan? When the flood is over and the Ark lands the deity who is enticed by the smell of roasting meat, forgets his original determination to end all mankind, and even makes a covenant with Noah to never do so again.The nagging contradictions can easily be placed to rest if one considers the fact that the bible’s version is an edited version of the original Sumerian account.

As in many other instances, the edited “monotheistic” Bible has compressed into one deity the roles played by one or more other gods who did not always act in accord.From the Sumerian version, Enki who disagreed with his brother Enlil’s commandto destroy all humans found a way to warn Utnapistim/Ziusudra.

‘Man of Shuruppak, son of Ubar-tutu: Tear down thy house, build a ship! Give up possessions, seek thou life! Foreswear belongings, keep soul alive! Aboard ship take thou theseedof all living things; That ship thou shalt build – Her dimensions shall be to measure…From the Bible, God determined to end all mankind then gives a reprieve and warns Noah.

Genesis 6:14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
Genesis 6:15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

After the flood, Utnapishtim/Ziusudra built an altar and offered a sacrifice.

From the Enuma Elish;
‘the gods smelled the savor, the gods smelled the sweet savor the gods crowded like flies about a sacrificer’

From the Bible;
Genesis 8:20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination ofman’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

[….]

Moses then said to God,`Look, if I go to theIsraelites and say to them, “The god of your ancestors has sent me to you,” and they say to me, “What is his name?” what am I to tell them. God said to Moses, `I am who I am’.
Exodus 3:13-14

As we have learned, Enki (`Lord of the Earth’) was called Ea in Akkadian (East Semitic) – that is to say in the Babylonian tradition. Scholars have determined that Eawas vocalized as ‘Eya’. So, when Moses stood before the burning bush and asked the name of the god of the mountain, did “God” really reply`I am who I am’(Heb. Eyah asher eyah)? This puzzling phrase has long perplexed many theologians here is our simple explanation.

It also explains God’s apparently nonsensical instruction:`This is what you are to say to the Israelites,“I am has sent me to you”. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the above statement makes no sense.The words properly translated are`Eyah has sent me to you’.

Evidence has it that the “Yahweh” movement originated with the court of King Solomon’s son Rehoboam about 960 BCE, at that time many documents were written to strongly favor the Davidic line of succession in a bid to unite the kingdoms of Judah and Israel. The Yahweh ‘sect’ was concentrated in the south in Judah and is associated with temple ritual among the Jews and the El ‘sect’was in the north among the Israelites- just as Chemosh was the patron god of the Moabites, Milcom of the Ammonites,Hadad of the Arameans, Melkart of the Tyrians.

Though initially of the same clan and stock the Judeans felt they had a claim to rule over all Hebrews and the Israelites did not feel the same.They each developed their own countries with their own kings and both also had their own biblical versions.During the 7th and 6th centuries BCE these separate but similar “Bibles” were merged in an effort to once again unite the tribes ofIsrael under one King and one Banner.The efforts of the Hebrews in the 7th and 6th centuries BCE were not so much the creation of new gods and new concepts from whole cloth, but rather the taking of older concepts and adding a “New Twist.”

Yahweh-El is the result of the new twists derived from a re-working and transformation of older concepts by the Hebrews, who followed in the footsteps of their Mesopotamian predecessors.Yahweh-El is simply a re-working and transformation of the Sumerian god of Wisdom and Knowledge, Enki, also called Ea or Ia, which later became – Iah/Yah/Yaw.This transformation may have also come to the Hebrews from other places but the fact remains that even those others we can trace that contributed to the Supremacy of Yahweh-El simply re-interpret and spun their own twists on the Sumerian epics.

In the Ugaritic myths Baal conquers the tannin of the sea, so does Yahweh. Baal-Hadad the storm god was the chief god of the Arameans, and it worth noting that Israel claimed her ancestors were Arameans, and that Yahweh is likened to possessing the epithets and achievements of Baal-Hadad, he appearing at Mount Sinai in the form of a Storm Cloud.

Baal Hadad (alternately, Adad) is portrayed as a god who dwells within the darkness ofa thundercloud, whose thunder is his voice,and whose rains, initiate the Flood that destroys all mankind.

The Biblical portrayal of Yahweh as a god who dwells within the darkness of the thundercloud (Deut 4:11; 5:22, 23) is borrowing imagery from Baal-Hadad, who also dwells in a dark thundercloud and whose voice is the thunder. The Bible also relates that Yahweh was called Baal by some Israelites “And in that day, says the Lord, you will callme, ‘My Husband,’ and no longer will you call me, ‘My Ba’al.’ For I will remove the names of the Ba’als from her mouth, and they shall be mentioned by name no more.” Hosea 2:16

If Yahweh was originally subordinate to El, it be could that the Israelites at first imagined him as a god of the same type as Canaanite Baal.
-Yahweh as did Baal also appeared as a storm-god.
-Yahweh like Baal first established his kingship over the world by subduing the unruly cosmic waters, symbolized by a serpent or a dragon.
-There are psalms that show Yahweh subduing the waters along with the dragons Leviathan and Rahab.
-Like Baal, Yahweh had been a god who had to fight the waters until they submitted to his will.
-Like Baal, Yahweh constantly sustained the ordered world.

Yahweh did not – any more than Baal or Marduk – remain subordinate to the supreme god their fathers.

From The Gilgamesh Epic:
“There rises from the foundation of the heavens a black cloud. Adad thunders in the midst of it.”

From The Bible:
“And you came near and stood at the foot of the mountain, while the mountain burned with fire to the heart of heaven, wrapped in darkness, cloud and gloom.Deut 4:11″These words the Lord spoke to all your assembly at the mountain out of the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darknesswith a loud voice…And when you heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire….”
Deut 5:22,23

Marduk, (Enki/Ea’s eldest son) after slayingTiamat, holds his bow up for praise and places it in the heavens as a”bow star constellation,” a type of memorial to his ending the threat of a flood to destroy the gods who dwelt on the earth.Yahweh-El, like Marduk, places his bow in the heavens after bringing to an end the Flood, as a rainbow.

[….]

`Eyah’ or simply `Ya’ is the hypocoristic form of the name Yahweh found as an element of so many Old Testament names. So Enki/Ea, the god who created Man and then later warned Ziusudra/Utnapishtim of the impending destruction of mankind, is one and the same as the god of Moses.

This was the great revelation given to the hero of Exodus during his long exile from Egypt in the wilderness of Sinai. It was only when Moses came into contact with the Midianite priest, Jethro, that the highly Egyptian-ized Israelite learned of a much earlier history for his people their origins in the land of Eden, their descent into Shinar and the name of their primeval God. The Midianites were also descended from the patriarch, Abraham, through the sons of his wife, Keturah. They however, had not suffered oppression in the land of Egypt, having split off from the Abrahamic tribe and settled in northwestern Arabia [Genesis 25:1-6]. They had not lost their cultural and religious identity through slavery to a civilization with different beliefs and traditions.

It is likely that the Midianites would have been culturally closer to their origins than the Israelites. They too had a rich oral tradition stretching back to ancestral Mesopotamia. Or perhaps they carried withthem original cuneiform tablets relating thedifferent myths and epics of their ancestorsfrom Sumer.

Moses then said to God,`Look, if I go to theIsraelites and say to them “The god of yourancestors has sent me to you,” and they say to me “What is his name?”, what am I to tell them?’ God said to Moses, `I am he who is called Ea’. And he said, `This is whatyou are to say to the Israelites, “Ea has sent me to you”. You are to tell the Israelites, “Ea, the god of your ancestors, the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, has sent me to you.” This is my name for all time and in this way I am to be invoked for all generations to come.’ Exodus 3:13,14, 15

The implications are clear: the Israelites did not know the name Ea and so it follows that they had little or no idea of their ancestral heritage.

[….]

With our identification of Yahweh with the Sumerian god Enki and the Akkadian god Ea we have had an opportunity to comparethecharacter and attributes of the deities to see if they represent the same basic natural elements. The following is the authoritative view of Yahweh.

While the date and origins of the names are debatable, the character of Yahweh is certainly clear, although multifaceted in the biblical text.
·He is a storm god who speaks in the thunder, who hurls or shoots lightning (Exodus 19:16-19; 20:18; Psalm 18:14; Job37:5; Amos 1:2; Habakkuk 3:11).
·He is a god of the mountains (Exodus 19; 1 Kings 20:3).
·Fire is both a sign of Yahweh’s presence and a weapon (Exodus 13:21; 1 Kings 18:38).
·He is a god of the desert (Judges 5:4).·He has control over the waters of the earth – the sea (Exodus 14:21; Jonah),
·He has control over the rivers Joshua 3:16-17),·He has control over the rain (Genesis 2:5; 1 Kings 17).
·He is the giver of life and one who brings death.
·He is a god of war and of peace.

There are many aspects here that are characteristic of Enki/Ea who is the life-giving deity of fresh water, but there are also others which reflect the more violent nature of his brother Enlil (`Lord of the Air’) who was the head of the Mesopotamian pantheon, also known as Baal the Canaanite storm god and Seth, the Egyptian god of the desert. The god of Moses thus reflects an amalgam of deities.

A More In-depth Look

Here I have a few quotes of interest from Domination by Deception by Peter Goodgame, which may be found in its entirety at RedMoonRising.com

YHWH is similar to the enigmatic god Anu in that both are viewed as “Father” deities. Anu was understood as the father of the first generation of gods including the two brothers Enlil and Enki, while YHWH was the “father” of the angelic host who are referred to throughout the Old Testament as the B’nai Ha Elohim, or “Sons of God.” Anu may have also been viewed by the Sumerians as the original creator of the universe, but gradually creation became viewed as a “natural” process involving impersonal primordial “forces.” For the Sumerians Anu was really unimportant and he existed as an “otiose” deity far away in heaven, which was also the place from where YHWH ruled according to the Hebrews.

The apparent relationship between YHWH and Enlil is much more substantial. Enlil was not viewed by the Sumerians as the original Creator of the universe but he was viewed as the ultimate Ruler of the gods and of mankind. Sumerian myths also describe Enlil as the father of a generation of gods, and several myths refer to Enlil (as opposed to Enki) as the creator and father of mankind. The cult center of Enlil was located in the holy city of Nippur, which was never a political capital and does not appear as a capital city on the Sumerian King List. Nippur was instead a sort of religious capital where the kings of Sumer went to receive Enlil’s approval and to honor the mightiest and most-feared of theSumerian gods. According to the Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta epic, prior to the reign of Enmerkar the Sumerians worshiped Enlil alone, which implies something similar to Hebrew monotheistic worship of YHWH. The Sumerians also looked to Enlil as the ultimate decision-maker within the council of the gods and, like YHWH in the book of Genesis, it was Enlil who decided to send the Great Flood to wipe out mankind.

The relationship between YHWH and Enki presents much more of a challenge for scholars of the ancient texts and remains a highly debated question. If any god could be said to be the”personal” god of the Sumerians it would have to be Enki. Like YHWH’s relationship with the Hebrews, Enki was viewed by the Sumerians as powerful, kind, and wise in his schemes to protect the Sumerians from the animosity of other gods (especially Enlil) and from neighboring enemy tribes. Just as YHWH cared for his people, the Hebrews, so was Enki portrayed as caring for the Sumerians. As mentioned inPart Five, Enki’s apparent love for mankind could be traced back to Sumerian traditions that Enki, just like YHWH in Genesis, was personally involved in creating mankind out of clay. Enki also played a role similar to YHWH when, through his actions, a particular family was chosen, warned, and spared from the Great Flood by being given instructions for building an ark.

[….]

David Rohl even believes that YHWH actually declared His identity as Enki/Ea to Moses in a straightforward manner at the incident of the burning bush:
“Moses then said to God, ‘Look, if I go to the Israelites and say to them, “The god of your ancestors has sent me to you,” and they say to me, “What is his name?” what am I to tell them?’ God said to Moses,’I am who I am’.” [Exodus 3:13-14]

Here is how David Rohl explains this curious dialogue between Moses and the Voice from the burning bush:
“As we have learnt, Enki (‘Lord of the Earth’) was called Ea in Akkadian (East Semitic) – that is to say in the Babylonian tradition. Scholars have determined that Ea was vocalized as ‘Éya’. So, when Moses stood before the burning bush and asked the name of the god of the mountain, did he really reply ‘I am who I am’ (Heb.Eyah asher eyah)? This puzzling phrase has long perplexed theologians but now there is a simple explanation. The voice of God simply replied ‘Eyah asher Eyah’– ‘I am (the one) who is called Eyah’ – the name of Ea in its West Semitic (i.e. Hebrew) form. Scholars have simply failed to recognize that this is another of those characteristic puns in which the Old Testament abounds. ‘I am (Eyah) he who is called (asher) Ea (Eyah)’ is a classic biblical play on words. It also explains God’s apparently nonsensical instruction: ‘This is what you are to say to the Israelites, “I am has sent me to you.”‘ God’s words should really be translated as ‘Eyah has sent me to you.”Eyah’ or simply ‘Ya’ is the hypocoristic form of the nameYahweh found as an element of so many Old Testament names. So Enki/Ea, the god who created Man and then later warned Ziusudra/Utnapishtim of the impending destruction of mankind, is one and the same as the god of Moses.”

[….]

Gardner approaches the subject of Enlil and Enki in his follow-up book Genesis of the Grail Kings(1999), and for him the identity of YHWH/Jehovah is very obvious. “The Jehovah of the Jews (El Elyon of the Canaanites) was, therefore, synonymous with Enlil of the Anunnaki,son of the great Anu.” Gardner then goes on to identify Enki. “The serpent who conversed at length with Eve was clearly not a lowly, dumb creature, but a guardian of the sacred knowledge… It is further evident from the Mesopotamian serpent illustration that it has a direct Enki association, since Enki (Ea) was traditionally depicted as the Serpent-Lord of the Euphrates. Just as the serpent was the giver of wisdom, so Enki was constantly referred to as Enki the Wise…” For Gardner the “Grail Kings” are the true kings who have the divine right to rule over mankind. He traces the genealogy of this illuminated elite back to Cain, the first son of Eve, and Gardner resurrects the ancient Talmudic legend that Cain’s true father was Samael the serpent, identified by Gardner as Enki. He writes,”In terms of sovereign genealogy, the line of Ham and Nimrod (in descent from Cain, Lamech and Tubal-cain) held the true heritage of Grail kingship, while the Sethian line through Noah and Shem were of lesser standing…” According to Gardner, Ham was in fact the first-born son of Tubal-Cain, and not the son of Noah as stated in Genesis. With this step Gardner is able secure a line of human descent directly to Enki himself, even through the catastrophe of the Great Flood.

In commenting on the Judeo-Christian concept of Satan/Lucifer as the great Adversary of God and man, Gardner claims that this is a spurious theological invention created to help intimidate and subjugate early Christians under the domination of the Roman Church. For Gardner, the serpent-god Enki was mankind’s original creator, our most important teacher, our protector against the animosity of Enlil/YHWH, and essentially “a true champion of mankind.”

Mark Amaru Pinkham is a successful author who also alleges that mankind’s true creator is Lucifer,a name which he says is synonymous with Enki of the Sumerians. Pinkham’s ideas are explained in his bookThe Return of the Serpents of Wisdom(1997), while in another book,The Truth Behind the Christ Myth(2002), he explains that Jesus Christ was simply one of a series of manifestations of this divine figure. Pinkham has also written on the connection between the true”christ” and the medieval Knights Templar, and he is the founder of an organization calledThe International Order of Gnostic Templars.

William Henry is another name associated with Sitchin’s “extra-terrestrial origins” theory. Henry refers to himself as an “investigative mythologist,” he has published close to a dozen books, and he can be heard often on late-night radio on shows such as Coast-to-Coast AM that discuss alternative and esoteric issues. In one of his online articles Henry explains how the conflictbetween Enki/Ea and Enlil continues to the present day:”E.A. and his priests, seek to uplift humanity to the level of the gods through global education and revelation of all sacred secrets. Enlil’s priests seek to keep humanity at the level of slaves and sex objects, the property of a police state cryptocracy.”

In his book Dimensions(1989) Vallee elaborates on this hypothesis: “I propose that there is a spiritual control system for human consciousness and that paranormal phenomen alike UFOs are one of its manifestations. I cannot tell whether this control is natural and spontaneous; whether it is explainable in terms of genetics, of social psychology, or of ordinary phenomena—or if it is artificial in nature, under the power of some superhuman will. It may be entirely determined by laws that we have not yet discovered.”

If indeed the ancient “gods” are manipulating and controlling human consciousness from other dimensions then we can expect Enki to be playinga major role in this ongoing program. But is his role positive, as the Sumerians and modern New Age authors assure us, or is he the Great Deceiver and the greatest enemy of both God and man, as Judeo-Christian traditions have warned from the very beginning?

[….]

As far as the pagan world was concerned there was only one story to be told, even though each culture told it in a unique way with different names and each with its own culturally-relevant details. In the final analysis this story is Enki’s story, and Enki’s great rival Enlil, understood by so many to be YHWH the God of Israel, had to wait about fifteen hundred years before He could give His side of the story. That was the approximate length of time from the invention of writing to the moment when Moses met his appointment with God on the top of Mt. Sinai. It will be interesting as we find out what He had to say.

Biblical Response

[….]

Modern scholars find many similarities when they compare Genesis with the creation accounts of the Sumerians and Babylonians. For instance, according to Genesis, creation took place in seven days, literal or otherwise, whereas the Enuma Elish creation account of the Babylonians was written down in a division of seven tablets. Other similarities exist, but these many similarities only serve to highlight the few important differences that do exist. These differences are enough to prove that the Hebrews had an understanding of creation and early history in common with the pagan cultures, but they viewed these events from a completely different, and in many cases opposite, perspective.

Concerning the “Fall of Man,” this is the event in Genesis that sets the stage for all further divine-human relationships, whether they be mankind’s relationship with God, or mankind’s relationship with the “Sons of God,” also known as the fallen angels, who manipulate human affairs from the spirit-world. This event also introduces the primary adversary of God and Man, who is referred to in Hebrew as the nachash of the Garden of Eden. Semitic languages scholar Dr. Michael S. Heiser believes that this word, which is usually translated as “serpent,” can also be translated as “the shining one.” This means that this creature was not a mere snake, but was a divine being capable of using speech to flatter and deceive. Heiser associates this nachash with the descriptions of Satan in Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28. In Isaiah his name is given as Helel ben Shakar, which means “the shining one, son of thedawn, “translated in some Bibles as “Lucifer, son of the morning,” whereas Ezekiel helps to explain the origins of his overblown pride: “You had the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.You were in Eden, the garden of God…”

While the tempter of Eve may not have been an actual snake, he has always been associated with the serpent in one way or another. The book of Revelation (12:9) describes him as a red dragon, and refers to him as “the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world.” In the book of Genesis his punishment for deceiving Eve also appears to be related to his “serpentine” aspect: “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” (Genesis 3:14-15) Within this curse upon the serpent was also a prediction of the serpent’s doom, which would come from a man descended from Eve herself. The Hebrews understood this promise as the Protoevangelium, or “first prophecy,” of the coming of the world’s Messiah who would provide the remedy and reverse the effects of the Fall.

For the Hebrews “Satan the Serpent” was known from the beginning as a cunning deceiver who was cursed by God and would one day be destroyed by the Messiah. Compare this with the pagan view of the “shining serpent,” as given by Philo of Byblos, translated from even earlier Phoenician texts:

“The nature then of the dragon and of serpents Tauthus [Egyptian Thoth, Greek Hermes] himself regarded as divine, and so again after him did the Phoenicians and Egyptians: for this animal was declared by him to be of all reptiles most full of breath, and fiery. In consequence of which it also exerts an unsurpassable swiftness by means of its breath, without feet and hands or any other of the external members by which the other animals make their movements. It also exhibits forms of various shapes, and in its progress makes spiral leaps as swift as it chooses. It is also most long-lived, and its nature is to put off its old skin, and so not only to grow young again, but also to assume a larger growth; and after it has fulfilled its appointed measure of age, it is self-consumed, in like manner as Tauthus himself has set down in his sacred books: for which reason this animal has also been adopted in temples and in mystic rites… The Phoenicians call it “Good Daemon”; in like manner the Egyptians also surname it Cneph;and they add to it the head of a hawk because of the hawk’s activity. Epeïs also (who is called among them a chief hierophant and sacred scribe, and whose work was translated by Areius of Heracleopolis), speaks in an allegory word for word as follows: ‘The first and most divine being is a serpent with the form of a hawk, extremely graceful, which whenever he opened his eyes filled all with light in his original birthplace, but if he shut his eyes, darkness came on. ‘Epeïs here intimates that he is also of a fiery substance, by saying ‘he shone through,’ for to shine through is peculiar to light.”

The question that begs to be asked is this: What can possibly explain these two radically different perspectives on the nature of the serpent? For the Hebrews he was cursed by God to a level lower than that of animals and forced to eat dust, whereas for the pagans he was the”Good Daemon,”and”the first and most divine being.”

After God’s cursing of the serpent the next curse falls upon Cain for killing his brother Abel. In PartFive we saw how the dispute between the shepherd and the farmer is resolved differently in Sumerian texts than in the book of Genesis, with the farming winning divine favor over the shepherd, and the shepherd becoming belligerent towards the farmer. There is also a different emphasis on the lines of descent. Genesis gives the descendents of Cain and relates their founding of the first city, but Seth’s line is more important because it leads to Noah. On the other hand, the Sumerians appear to focus upon the line of Cain, with the institution of the hereditary monarchy “descending from heaven” to Enki’s city, the city of Eridu, named for Irad the grandson of Cain. In contrast, as far as YHWH was concerned the institution of a monarchy was unnecessary and was viewed as inevitably leading to oppression (1 Samuel 8:10-22).

The other “descent from the heavens” account is the descent of the fallen angels themselves. This is portrayed in Genesis 6, and it involves unholy relations between some of the “sons of God” and human women, a relationship which produced the Nephilim. From this human-angelic interaction the world became”corrupt in the sight of God”and”filled with violence,” which became the justification for sending the global Flood. According to pagan mythologies this was the Golden Age of Kronos when the gods lived with men during the era of the kingdom of Atlantis. However, even though it was viewed as an idealistic time when the “true religion” originally ruled, Greek writers such as Plato explained that Atlantis became corrupt in its spiritual teachings and used its great power to dominate and abuse the entire world.

The non-canonical book of Enoch explains how the fallen angels taught mankind astronomy and astrology, charms and spells, and the properties of plants and herbs. One particular angel named Azazel”taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and taught them about metals of the earth and the art of working them”(Enoch 8:1). In Genesis the craft of metalworking is ascribed to Tubal-Cain, a descendent of Cain. David Rohl associates this name with Bad-tibira, which is the second city on the Sumerian King List, following Eridu where”kingship descended from heaven.” According to Sumerian accounts the great”civilizer” of mankind was the great god Enki, the Lord of the Abzu in Eridu, who was portrayed as a firm friend and champion of mankind. On the other hand the book of Enoch explains that the innovations given to mankind were used for wicked purposes. The Nephilim ruled with an ironfist, “and when men could no longer sustain them,the giants turned against them and devoured mankind”(Enoch 7:4). Regarding Azazel himself, Enoch 10:8 reads:”The whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel:to him ascribe ALL SIN.”

After the Great Flood we come to a curious incident in which Ham, one of the three sons of Noah, dishonors his father. This brings about another curse, which is a curse from Noah, given because of Ham’s indiscretion but applied to Ham’s son Canaan. In the Sumerian King List and in the myth Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta both Meskiagkasher (Cush) and Enmerkar (Nimrod) are said to be descendents of Utu. If Utu is to be found within the book of Genesis then Utu can only be Ham, the third son of Noah who is described negatively in Genesis. On the other hand, within Sumerian mythology, specifically Enki and the World Order, we find that Utu/Ham is glorified:”Enki placed in charge of the whole of heaven and earth the hero, the bull who comes out of the ašur forest bellowing truculently,the youth Utu, the bull standing triumphantly, audaciously, majestically, the father of the Great City, the great herald in the east of holy An, the judge who searches out verdicts for the gods, with a lapis-lazuli beard, rising from the horizon into the holy heavens.”

Utu became known as the Sun God in Sumerian mythology and the god of Truth and Justice. In the Akkadian language Utu was known as Shamash. It was Ham’s grandson Nimrod who was responsible for the Tower of Babel, and we have already shown how this is portrayed in Sumerian myth as Enmerkar’s attempt to renovate the Holy Abzu of Eridu in honor of Enki. In the descriptions of the role given to Utu by Enki, we can perhaps read how the young Ham (the youth Utu) left the home of his father Noah (which was a mountainous land of forests), in a fury of indignation (bellowing truculently) because of what he perceived to be an unjust verdict against himself and his son. Then Enki appears, offering flattering words and deceitful promises, after which we find that Ham becomes deified by Enki as the Sun and God of Justice! In Egyptian myth we find that Ham is most likely represented as the god Horus. This may sound confusing on the surface, because Horus is usually viewed as the son of Osiris, who has been shown to be Nimrod, the grandson of Ham. The problem is resolved once we realize that the earliest Egyptian myths describe Horus as either the brother or uncle of Osiris. Eventually two separate Horus identities appeared whom Plutarch refers to as “Horus the Elder” and “Horus the Younger,” the latter being the well-known son of Osiris and the great unifier of Egypt. This interpretation makes sense because the facts show that the cult of Horus was well-known some time before the cult of Osiris was established. The worship of Horus dates back to Pre-Dynastic times to the “Falcon City” of Nekhen, while concrete evidence for the worship of Osiris first appears only in the Fourth Dynasty.

[….]

It seems that at every important stage of the book of Genesis we find a description of events very similar to pagan accounts, but the interpretation of the events is given a completely opposite spin. What can account for the fact that the Hebrews, a seemingly insignificant tribe of refugees fleeing from Egypt, would seek to create a history of creation and civilization that repeatedly contradicted the way in which the surrounding nations viewed the very same history? The next section will help to answer this question.

God Against Gods

After the account of the indiscretion of Ham the book of Genesis continues in chapter ten with a listing of seventy of the descendents of Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the three sons of Noah. At the end of this listing is an explanation:”and out of these the nations were separated on the earth after the flood.” Chapter eleven then continues with the story that helps to explain exactly how these nations were separated, which is the story of the Tower of Babel. Hebrew tradition, as well as Josephus, maintains that this episode was directed by Nimrod, whose empire included virtually the entire civilized world. At his prodding the people of the earth said “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the earth.”

According to Genesis the building of the city and the tower was begun for two reasons: 1) To”make for ourselves a name,” and 2) To establish a base from which to resist the divine command given in Genesis 9 as part of the Noachide Covenant to”multiply and fill the earth.” As a result of this disobedience Genesis 11:5 explains that the Lord “came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.” God’s response to the situation is explained in Genesis 11:6-7, which included an appeal from God to His heavenly host: “The Lord said, ‘Behold, they are one people and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language so that they will not understand one another’s speech.'”

The Book of Jasher is a non-canonical book that is mentioned in Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1:18, and it explains the identity of the “us” that God refers to in Genesis 11, “And they built the tower and the city, and they did this thing daily until many days and years were elapsed. And God said to the seventy angels who stood foremost before him, to those who were near to him, saying, ‘Come let us descend and confuse their tongues, that one man shall not understand the language of his neighbor,’ and they did so unto them.” (Jasher 9:31)

This strange episode was concluded after these”angels” agreed to God’s invitation to make a”descent” from heaven to earth. The final result is given in Genesis 11:8-9, which explains how the people of the earth who resisted being scattered were forced to meet the terms of the Noachide Covenant of Genesis 9:
“So the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of the earth; and they stopped building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.”

[….]

The book of Genesis does not elaborate on how these descending angels affected mankind at the time of the division of the nations. In fact, the explanation of this event does not appear until the book of Deuteronomy where it can be found within the final speech that Moses gave to the people of Israel just prior to his death: “When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of man, he set the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God.” (Deuteronomy 32:8)

These “sons of God” were members of the”heavenly host” of angelic beings that God originally created to help manage the earth and all creation. This explanation for these “sons of God” is clarified by an old Jewish Targum on this text found in a manuscript known as Pseudo-Jonathan.

“When the Most High made allotment of the world unto the nations which proceeded from the sons of Noach, in the separation of the writings and languages of the children of men at the time of the division, He cast the lot among the seventy angels, the princes of the nations.”

The decision to divide the nations of the world took place in a “Divine Council” setting, with God consulting with a council of seventy “sons of God”before arriving at a decision. The “sons of God” are advanced beings, also known as “angels,” and because they were created with Free Will not all of them have always acted in obedience with God and His divine plan. The seventy “sons of God” who appeared before God at this particular Divine Council to come to an agreement with God regarding the problem of the Tower of Babel were rebel angels whose interaction with humanity far pre-dated the Flood. In other words, they were a dissident faction of angels who thought they could manage humanity much better than God could. To deal with the problem of Enki’s domination of the world through Nimrod and his empire God decided to allow these angels a chance to prove their argument. The end result was that the world was divided up according to”the number of the sons of God.”

“Seventy” was the number of members within this particular angelic faction, which is why the Table of Nations of Genesis 10 lists exactly seventy descendents of Shem, Ham, and Japheth, who made up the nations that “were separated on the earth after the flood.” From God’s perspective, a situation in which humanity was united against God under the control of Satan and Nimrod was exchanged for a situation in which humanity was divided against God under the control of the seventy fallen angelic”princes.”

The disappearance of YHWH from human affairs, through the transfer of direct authority over humanity to the “fallen angels,” can be deduced by the existence of so-called “otiose” deities at thehead of the pantheons of the pagan world. For instance, most scholars refer to the Sumerian god Anu as an “otiose Deity.” He was the head of the Sumerian pantheon, but he did not actually do anything, and the Sumerians had very few, if any, representations of him, despite the fact that temples were built in his honor, such as the one excavated by Sir Leonard Wooley at Ur.

In Canaanite mythology, which is known to us from the Ugaritic texts of Ras Shamra, the “otiose deity” is the great god El. The primary Canaanite myth known asThe Baal Cycle characterizes El as a deity far removed from human affairs, who falls into a dispute with his wife when he is faced with promoting one of his sons to the position of active leader of the pantheon. According to Ugaritic accounts, and this is a very significant point, the number of El’s sons was exactly seventy.

In conclusion, the Tower of Babel event, more than being simply a fascinating story of how the different languages came to exist, is in fact the place and time where “Paganism” came into existence as a religion and as a system of spiritual control over, and enslavement of, the minds and souls of humanity. In this sense William Bramley was absolutely correct in his characterization of the oppression of humanity at the hands of the “Custodians” when he wrote,
“To keep control over its possession and to maintain Earth as something of a prison, that other civilization [the fallen angels / Custodians] has bred never-ending conflict between human beings, has promoted human spiritual decay, and has erected on Earth conditions of unremitting physical hardship. This situation has existed for thousands of years and it continues today.”

Conclusion

You may click on the links provided to read the above articles in their entirety. The third is 12 pages long, possibly containing more information I could have quoted here. However, the author seems to have a bias that is made evident in the final 5 pages of the article, and I feel what I have quoted is enough to cover the topic of this edition of ‘The Way’.

Based on my research, and the quoted sources above, I feel it can be considered conclusive that:
-Prior to the formation of Judaism by the tribe of Judah, there was only one belief system. The only difference being the names each nation chose for the gods.
-The tribe of Judah, in disagreement with the other tribes of Israel, re-wrote accounts of history; amalgamated the gods into one; and twisted stories, to fit their means.

All things considered, it is fair to assume then, that the serpent isn’t necessarily the evil one; YHWH wishes man to be slaves, whereas the serpent made attempts to free man. It may also be said that, due to amalgamation of the gods, many verses attributed to God are Enlil, while others are Enki.

In the next edition of ‘The Way’ we will see what attributes of Yahweh are Enlil and what are of Enki. We will also see which of these two gods have been amalgamated into Yahweh, and which of the two gods is simply a more ancient name for Yahweh.

The Way: Is Yahweh/Jehovah Satan?

This is the first of ‘The Way’ series. ‘The Way’ will reveal the major alterations made to the Bible, theological and historical coverups – all part of the Great Deception. ‘The Way’ series will also reveal the true meaning of Jesus’ message and how to reach spiritual perfection.

This is not intended to shake your faith, or prove God isn’t real. God is very real. This is simply to help point out the errors the Catholic Church inserted into the text. The institutionalized Church and the canonized Bible are the Great Deception. No matter how hard the early Catholics tried to alter the text, Truth remains. Clues to the true story are hidden in the lies. The Light hidden within the Darkness. As a minister of Christ and follower of ‘The Way’, it is my job to defend Truth and present it to the world. I give you the facts, it is up to you to look into it yourself. Don’t believe it because I say it, believe it because you see it to be true.

Before you read any further, it must be understood I am not attacking God, but defending Him. I am not attacking His Word, but revealing it. I am not seeking to destroy His way, but to preserve it. I am a follower of Yeshua, defender of The Way.

In this edition of ‘The Way’ series, we cover the following topics:
“Old Testament God Is Satan?”, “Old Testament God Is Evil?”, “Prophetic Deception?”, “More Than One God?”, and “Yahweh/Jehovah, the Demiurge?”.

Unless otherwise stated, all verses are from the King James Bible.

Old Testament God Is Satan?

2 Samuel 24:1
“And again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.”

which in 1 Chronicles 21:1 becomes:
“And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.”

Lamentations 3:38-39
Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good? Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?

James has this to say:
James 3:10-12
Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

From Upliftingcrane’s Blog article titled Old Testament God Jehovah is Satan:

In Hebrew, Je or Jeh or Jah means Lord or God [ref].

The suffix “hovah” is No. 1943 in Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary and has the meaning of “ruin, mischief.”

It is another form of No. 1942, ‘havvah’, which is translated “calamity, iniquity, mischief, mischievous (thing), naughtiness, naughty, noisome, perverse thing, substance, very wickedness.”

Put the two (Je + hovah) together and you get “God of ruin, mischief, calamity, perversion, and wickedness”. And don’t forget ‘noisome‘ – which means it stinks! Simply put, Jehovah is The God of Evil!

The Wrathful God

“Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. There went up a smoke out of his nostrils and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.”
(Psalms 18:7-11)

Comment

Consider that these verses describe an angry (wroth) being, spouting smoke and fire, whose secret place consisted of darkness. This devilish entity sounds like a description of Satan, but believe it or not, actually comes from the Bible as describing God.

God rejoices your death

“And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.”
(Deuteronomy 28:63)

Comment

If the religious mind believes that God represents a loving God, then one must wonder about God, as described in the Bible, who would rejoice to destroy some of his creations.

Should we hold honor to an insane God? The Bible assures us that God possess an evil spirit with hate, and full of wrath, and here he rejoices in destruction! God appears completely devoid of any wit or humor; a mental state that psychologists have observed in many schizophrenics.

Fire Of God

“Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.”
(I Kings 18:38)

Comment

We get told that Satan involves himself with the eternal consuming fire, yet the Bible makes it abundantly clear that hell fire comes directly from God.

The Evil Spirit Of The Lord, 2

“And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.”
(I Samuel 19:9)

Comment

Consider that many modern Judeo-Christians consider God the opposite of evil, yet here we have, again, the clear Biblical wording of evil coming from the LORD.

In early Christian history, several Gnostic cults believed that the orthodox Church as well as the Old Testament, came from Satan. The Church, of course, labeled these Gnostics as heretics and burned their books as well as the heretics themselves.

Reading the Old Testament appears to affirm the observation that God and Satan, if not one in the same, at least work as a team.

Old Testament God is evil?

We are taught that good comes from God and evil comes from Satan. Well, let’s take a look. Shall we?

Deuteronomy 28:63
And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.

1 Samuel 16:23
And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him

2 Samuel 12:11
Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.

1 Kings 14:10
therefore, behold, I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam, and will cut off from Jeroboam him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel, and will take away the remnant of the house of Jeroboam, as a man taketh away dung, till it be all gone.

1 Kings 21:21
Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will take away thy posterity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel

Isaiah 45:7
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Prophetic Deception?

Joshua 10:11
And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Beth-horon, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.

becomes…

Revelation 16:21
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

It’s alleged Joshua 10:11 happened, while Revelation 16:21 is our future. Yet they are the same verse.

More Than One God?

From the article Many Gods in the Old Testament we read:

This is really a deep subject, and if one looks at it from a different viewpoint than one grew up with it is really difficult to deal with.   A recurring thought is, what if the one God gets so angry with me that He strikes me dead;  worse yet, what if, because of what I am writing, He bars me from heaven.  However, I take comfort in the fact that I am writing things that the Bible clearly teaches.  I am not concocting any fabulous theories.  Based on what the Bible teaches I am portraying only facts.  With that in mind, we continue.

Notice these two Bible verses:
Genesis 19:24  Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven.
Exodus 15:11 Our Lord, no other gods compare with you.
Hosea 1:7  I, [the Lord], (first person) will deliver them by the Lord their God (third person).

These three verses very distinctly speak of more than one god.  Some of the newer translations rearrange Geneses 19:24 in such a way that the Lord is mentioned only once.  Was this change made because the translators could not grapple with the teaching that there is more than one God?  When I wrote about the Bible, (when I first started blogging) I wrote that changes like this were being made to the Bible so that the Bible would agree with the translator’s theology.  Some would rather change the Bible then change their own preset conclusions! Abraham … dwelt on the other side of the river in old times: and they served other gods. Joshua 24:2.  The word we notice here is “gods” and it is the same word that is used in Genesis chapter one, (about the Gods which created heaven and earth), and in many other incidents throughout the Old Testament.  The gods are written about in plural, and as was already mentioned, the word gods does not always refer to idols.

The Psalmist said, For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. Psalm 95:3.  Again, the word “gods” here, is the same word used in Genesis chapter one, speaking about a collective, creative group of gods.  

O Israel, listen: Jehovah is our God, Jehovah alone. Deut. 6:4 (The Living Bible) Many theologians have used Deut. 6:4 to prove, from the Bible, that there is only one God (Jehovah), whereas it explicitly states the exact opposite.  What it actually says is that there are other Gods, but for Israel, there is to be only one God; His name is Jehovah.  Therefore, for all practical purposes, as far as praise and faith are concerned, for Muslims, for Jews and for The Church, it is not wrong to declare that there is only one God.  However, among those who want to be true to the Bible, it must be agreed, that the Bible distinctly teaches the existence of other Gods than Jehovah.

Wikipedia writes, Recognized scholars have formulated a substantial case for ancient Israel’s practice of Monolatry.  The book of Exodus, in fact none of “The Law”, denies the existence of other Gods.  However, it does make a strong issue of the fact that the Jews are to follow and worship only Jehovah.  We recall, from a few posts ago, that monolatry means, to worship one.  This viewpoint recognizes the existence of a plurality of actual gods, but insists that there is only one God worthy of worship.   For the Christian church that One is Jehovah.

Why don’t we try and let the Bible speak for itself, even if it means that we have to “think again” about the basics that we have learned in the church, in the mosque, or in the temple.

Yahweh/Jehovah, the Demiurge?

Before we look at this, let’s be clear what a demiurge is. From the Merriam-Webster dictionary we see:

Etymology: Late Latin demiurgus, from Greek dēmiourgos, literally, artisan, one with special skill, from dēmios of the people (from dēmos people) + -ourgos — worker (from ergon work)
1 capitalized (a) : a Platonic subordinate deity who fashions the sensible world in the light of eternal ideas (b) : a Gnostic subordinate deity who is the creator of the material world
2 : one that is an autonomous creative force or decisive power

Understanding what a demiurge is, understanding the plurality of a collective creative force, understanding that several locations of the text refers to God as “We”, “Us”, and “gods”, and understanding that Yahweh or Jehovah implies he is the only god worthy of worship, it seems as though Jehovah is in fact a demiurge.

Conclusion

Looking at the evidence, I believe the answer is conclusive. The answer is Yahweh/Jehovah is a demiurge. He is in fact a god, but one of many. He is a lesser god to the Supreme or Most High.

As being the creator of everything physical, he sought to be the god of the creation. To make himself “as the Most High”. To be sure he could accomplish this, he forbade creation from knowing itself and the Most High – the God of all that is. To keep creation from this seemingly small, yet largely significant fact, he issued laws and regulations – enforcing them through fear. He essentially made all of creation, especially mankind, his slaves.

The Most High naturally did not appreciate one of it’s own creations turning against it. But not only going against the Most High, but enslaving the very creation the demiurge was set forth to create. So the Most High did what any loving parent would do. Reprimanded the demiurge and set out to free creation from servitude to the demiurge.

This sparked a huge argument in the Heavens and the “war of the gods”. The story has since been twisted by man.

The Catholic Church-fathers, seeing themselves as gods. rewrote and created the Old and New testaments in such a way to transform the story and keep us, their followers, in line as obedient little slaves. They wrote Yahweh/Jehovah to be the one and only god, altered out the other gods, inserted new text and removed other. However, they couldn’t completely remove the Truth. If you look at the text closely, you see the war of the Most High and the demiurge, how the story was twisted, and just exactly Satan is.

It was deliberately written to be confusing, to give all authority to the governments and Church leadership, and to make us willing slaves to the demiurge and his subordinates. Todays institutional Church, the percieved Bible, and belief it is wrong to question are all part of the “Great Deception”. Yahweh/Jehovah is in fact Satan. And he has successfully destroyed the True Church for the better part of 1700yrs, successfully decieved the masses, and is now successfully exterminating Christians around the globe.
