1. In the Aftermath of the Nuclear Fallout
The plain at the Spaceport, which had been used as runways for the shuttles were now totally destroyed after Ninurta and Nergal, the angels in the Bible, nuked the Sinai and Sodom and Gomorrah, with not even one tree standing. The dark-brown cloud which headed eastward towards Sumer carried death on its wings. Wherever it swept, life in all forms died mercilessly. The fallout also annihilated the hybrid Nibiruan/Cro Magnon slaves in Mesopotamia, loyal to the Enlil.
Nammur (the Enlil) and Ea (the Enki) forewarned the gods of Sumer and told them to immediate escape. And the gods of the cities fled for their lives.
The next thing the Enlil did was to warn Abraham of the Negev desert on the border of Sinai, and transported him to a place near the Mediterranean coast, close to the Philistines, who sided with the Enlil.
In Lagash, which was Ninurta’s capitol, his wife Bau (sister of Ninmah) ran the hospital for human slaves in the city, but she refused to leave when the fallout from the bombs hit, so she died together with them. Nannar, Nammur’s son, barely escaped, from thereon suffering from severe radiation injuries, which left him with a bad limp.
It certainly looked like Galzu’s prophecy was going to be fulfilled, because Babylon was spared, and this was where Marduk declared his supremacy. Also the Enlil understood that Galzu’s predictions were about to come true.
Some of the gods, loyal to the Enlil left Sumer, accompanied by their followers to all the four corners of the world, so that the Anunnaki were now operating on all different continents of Earth. Others remained in the neighborhood, ready to challenge the new power, which was Marduk.
Marduk’s related, extended family in Northern Sumer, the Aryans, invaded the lands in the east, and Europe to the west, conquering human settlements everywhere, and imposed their Aryan supremacy on them. This is the status up to this very day. (We can see that, with all the wars and conflicts going on in the world in present time, if we could look at it with a birds-eye, we would see the same conflicts going on now as in the distant past; same old rivalry, and we humans are fighting their wars, unknowingly. Only difference is that the powers behind the scenes are hidden now).
2. The Enlil Branding His Cattle–YHVH’s Chosen People
Of all the slaves who were loyal to Nammur, the Enlilites and his RAM clan (Ninurta, Nannar, Adad, Utu, and Inanna), only Abraham and his loyalists survived with a lot of help from the Enlil. He wanted his slaves branded as his, like we are branding cattle today.
So when Abraham was 99 years old, the Enlil (YHVH in Hebrew, or YeHoVaH) commanded him and his male followers to cut off their foreskins so they would be clearly branded for Nammur and his sons by having phalluses like those of the Ša.A.M.i. This way the gods could easily recognize their own slaves. After Abraham and his people had all been circumcised, the Enlil told Abraham: “Unto thy seed have I given this land and the brook of Egypt [Nile] until the River Euphrates”. Nammur was clearly telling Abraham that he and his followers were the Enlil’s chosen people. The land he gave his chosen people included both that of the Arabs and that of the Israelis, which we will see soon.
3. And the Axe Was Made of Gold
The Enlil said Abraham would get a son by Sarah, who by the way was his half-sister, and who (by Nibiruan succession practices) would produce a son superseding Ishmael, Abraham’s son with his second wife, who was Sarah’s Egyptian slave (the ancestors of the Arabs). Sarah gave birth to Isaac (ancestor of the Israelis) in 2025 in Canaan.
Here is where it’s getting interesting, although it is all following the Biblical story: Ishmael was raised to become Abraham’s heir, to rule Canaan–at least this was what everybody thought. However, Ishmael and his mother were sentenced to die in the merciless desert, only to make way for Isaac as Abraham’s successor. Sarah said to Abraham that he should get rid of the Egyptian slave woman, because that woman’s son would never be his heir, but her son Isaac would.
The Enlil sided with Sarah, although, in reality, it was most probably the other way around, Sarah sided with the Enlil. Nammur told Abraham to listen to Sarah, because Isaac was going to be his successor. He further said: “I will make the son of the maid servant into a nation also because he is your offspring”. And moreover he told Abraham to expel Hagar, Sarah’s slave, in person. This was the Enlil’s first test to check his slave’s loyalty by driving a wedge between him and Hagar. Abraham obeyed without questioning, gave Hagar bread and a skin-bottle of water and sent her and the child out to wander in the wilderness of Beersheeba.
Once the water was all used, Hagar put Ishmael under a bush. She couldn’t let the little boy die. Just when it seemed like the end was near, the Enlil appeared in the desert and showed Hagar to a well, thus saving her and Ishmael, winning her undivided loyalty. From there, Ishmael became the father of the Arabs, whom up to this date are in conflict with the descendants of Isaac for Canaan. The “gods” know how to divide and conquer.
Isaac was the apple in the eye of Abraham, and he loved him dearly. The Enlil, noticing this, decided to once again test Abraham’s loyalty. He ordered Abraham to lead his son to a distant mountain, in the wilderness where no one could see, and murder him, cold bloodedly.
So Abraham, who never questioned his “god”, obeyed his Lord Enlil, took Isaac, his beloved son, up the mountain and built an altar on which he laid the young boy and bound him. He lifts his arm, which holds the knife, ready to slaughter Isaac, when an emissary of the Enlil appears before him and says: “Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, for not I know that your fear god since you have not withheld your son from Me. Because you have not withheld your son, indeed I will greatly bless you and I will greatly multiply your seed and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies because you have obeyed my Voice”.
The door it opened slowly, my father he came in,
I was nine years old.
And he stood so tall above me, his blue eyes they were shining
and his voice was very cold.
He said, “I’ve had a vision and you know I’m strong and holy,
I must do what I’ve been told.”
So he started up the mountain, I was running, he was walking,
and his axe was made of gold.
Well, the trees they got much smaller, the lake a lady’s mirror,
we stopped to drink some wine.
Then he threw the bottle over. Broke a minute later
and he put his hand on mine.
Thought I saw an eagle but it might have been a vulture,
I never could decide.
Then my father built an altar, he looked once behind his shoulder,
he knew I would not hide.
You who build these altars now to sacrifice these children,
you must not do it anymore.
A scheme is not a vision and you never have been tempted
by a demon or a god.
You who stand above them now, your hatchets blunt and bloody,
you were not there before,
when I lay upon a mountain and my father’s hand was trembling
with the beauty of the word.
And if you call me brother now, forgive me if I inquire,
“Just according to whose plan?”
When it all comes down to dust I will kill you if I must,
I will help you if I can.
When it all comes down to dust I will help you if I must,
I will kill you if I can.
And mercy on our uniform, man of peace or man of war,
the peacock spreads his (deadly) fan.
Christians call themselves, “God-fearing men”. Are we surprised?
No knife cut, and no golden axe fell that day, but the axe fell over a large faction of mankind from that very day when we learned to fear “God”, as written in the Bible text, and taught in almost every school in the Western world and in Israel ever since. Eventually, we are going to tell the story of how this Anunnaki Lord became the “Jealous God”.
4. Jacob’s Ladder and Jacob Becoming Israel in Egypt
Abraham, in 1907 BC, as the god-fearing man he now was, once again obeyed the Anunnaki Lord’s “wish”, and was worried that his son Isaac would marry some local Canaanite so that his bloodline would be diluted. So he sent his son to Harran on the Euphrates (modern Southern Turkey) to marry daughters to relatives who lived there. There he found Rebecca and brought her back to Canaan. The two got two twin sons, Esau and Jacob.
The twins grew up, and when they reached adulthood, a famine swept over Canaan. Isaac, who wanted to send them to Egypt were then warned by the Enlil not to cross the still radioactive Sinai to Egypt. Instead they ordered the brothers to stay in Canaan.
The Enlil was quick to point out that of the two twin brothers, he wanted Jacob to be Isaac’s successor, and was not allowed to take a wife from Canaan. So, again a descendant of Abraham’s was sent to Harran to take a wife from a relative to keep the bloodline pure. This time a daughter of Isaac’s maternal uncle Leban was in mind.
In biblical times, people often had “visions” in dream-state, seeing “angels” (read Anunnaki “gods”), telling them what to do, and what not. This was especially common in people whom the Anunnaki cared for, the human Elite, whom were of the purest Anunnaki bloodline. Jacob was no exception, and on his way north to Harran he had a vision of angels from the Elohim, something that in the Bible became known as “Jacob’s Ladder”.
Once in Harran, Jacob wanted to marry Leban’s daughter, Rachael, but Leban first wanted him to marry her elder sister, Leah and earn their dowries. Jacob worked twenty years for Leban, before he was allowed to take a second wife, Leban’s younger daughter, Rachael. Jacob then wanted to return back home to Canaan, but in another dream, one of the Nammur’s messengers forbade them to return. He also warned Leban in another dream to let Jacob and his two wives go.
Jacob went anyway, and when he reached the Jordan River at the Yabbok Crossing, uncertain of what Esau’s attitude would be to see his rival for succession, he sent his party ahead and stayed behind for awhile.
Once alone, Jacob encountered and wrestled with a Nibiruan angel, and dislocated his thigh in the furious battle. However, he won the fight, and pinned and held the Anunnaki all night. Next day he let the “angel” go if he promised to bless him, which he did.
The angel renamed Jacob “Israel”, or IS.RA.EL. (he who fought a god). The two departed, and Israel limped into Esau’s camp, became the patriarch of Enlil’s loyalists, and his tribe became “the Children of Israel”.
Joseph, born in 1870 BC, Israel’s and Rachael’s youngest son, was hated by their half-brothers, whom Israel had with Leah, because of his obsessions with dreams and his interpretations of them. To get rid of him, they sold him to a caravan as a slave. From there, they brought Joseph to Egypt.
In Egypt, Joseph was bought by the Pharaoh’s court as a household slave. After had spent some time in prison due to being falsely accused by the wife of his direct slaveholder to have raped her, Pharaoh Amenemhet III, who ascended the throne of Egypt in 1842 BC, heard the rumors of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams, so he asked for the slave to come before his court.
The Pharaoh had had a dream about seven skinny cows eating seven fat cows and seven scorched ears of grain ate seven healthy grains. He asked Joseph to interpret the dream.
Joseph told him that this meant that Egypt would experience seven years of plentiful harvest and seven years of famine. The Pharaoh was very impressed, and in 1840 BC, he made Joseph the Overseer of Egypt. His job was to store water and grain from the seven good years to use for the seven lean ones.
Just like Joseph had predicted, drought and famine broke out in Egypt seven years later, and refugees from elsewhere headed for Egypt, where the food was. Amongst the refugees were Joseph’s own father, Israel (now 130 years old) and his sons, including the half-brothers of Josephs’, who had sold him as a slave.
Joseph forgave his half-brothers and thus invited the Children of Israel to Egypt.
For 400 years, the Children of Israel and their descendents prospered and multiplied and became 600,000 in numbers, and a new regime arose, hostile to the Enlilites with whom the Children of Israel were allied, and they took power.
5. The Enlilites Against the Enkiites of Egypt and Babylon
The internal fights for power, bloodline domination, and an immature obsession to control others between the different factions of the Anunnaki royalty, cost the lives of hundreds of thousands human soldiers over the course of a few hundred years to come. And of course, the same Anunnaki rulers of their clans, respectively, survived it all, and most of them are alive and well up to this date. But, as I said, their human slaves were not that fortunate.
In this next section below, I am going to directly quote Dr. Sasha Lessin of U.C.L.A., who holds a Ph.D. in anthropology. He has in general been to great help in compressing all the wealth of information written in the books of the late Zechariah Sitchin. Here is Dr. Lessin, word by word:
Marduk gave Hammurabi, his king at Babylon “a powerful weapon,” called “Great Power of Marduk”, with which he subdued all Mesopotamia, save the Enlilite strongholds of Adad in Assyria and Ninurta in Lagash. In the 12th Century B.C., the Assyrians, led by King Tiglat-Pileser I, conquered Lebanon.
In the 9th century B.C., Adad and Nergal sent the Assyrian king Shalmaneser III with technologically-advanced artillery against Marduk’s Babylonians. With these weapons, Shalmaneser prevailed. Then, in 689 B C. Sennacherib, using, this time, “rocketlike missiles” Adad gave him, sacked Babylon on the pretext that the Babylonians had disappointed Marduk, their erstwhile god. Sennacherib sentenced the Babylonians to seventy years of Assyrian occupation and domination.
Commander Enlil watched Assyria’s Sennacherib subjugate Phoenicia, Gaza and Judea.
But Sennacherib–on his own without knowledge of authorization of his Nibiran handlers–attacked Jerusalem. Enlil controlled Mission Control Jerusalem. He zapped the his erstwhile Assyrian slave army with a techno-weapon that killed 185,000 men. Sennacherib fled back to Nineva in Sumer, where he declared his younger son Esarhaddon, his successor.
Sennacherib’s older sons killed the King, but the Nibirans hid Esarhaddon. Enlil sent Inanna to Assyria. She disarmed the Ninevan army and destroyed their weapons. Esarhaddon rules, she proclaimed.
Inanna continued protecting Assyria. She losed “an intense, blinding brilliance” on her headgear to blind Enemies of Esarhaddon’s successor, Ashurbanipal both in battles in Arabia and in an attack on Marduk’s Egyptian forces. Inanna “rained flames upon Arabia.”
Enlil decided to end Assyrian power. He let Babylonians conquer Assyria from 614-616 B.C. and sent Babylon’s king Nebuchadnezzar II to take Lebanon.
6. YHVH–the Brutal Mass Murderer–and his Hatchet-man Moses
In this part, I am going to use direct Bible quotes on occasion, to show the character of the Enlil, a.k.a. YHVH, God of the Israelites. Rarely, if ever, have we seen a character in the last 500,000 years of Earth history who has slaughtered more people than this entity alone. Forget Hitler, or any so-called dictator that we know from history books, or from present time events. These people are/were children-at-play in comparison–in fact, can’t be compared at all. (And this is the God of Israel, and also the Christian God. If we don’t break this “godspell” very soon, humanity is going to be in deep trouble).
In 1650 BC, new rulers, who became the pharaohs of the New Kingdom, conquered Egypt. Pharaoh Thutmose I of this new regime invaded Mesopotamia to the Euphrates River, which was the Enlil’s domain. Here was also where Abraham’s relatives and their descendents lived. Thutmose expected the Enlilites to strike back, and he feared the Israelites in Egypt, whom had grown, as we know, to the large number of 600,000. Hypothetically, they could take Egypt from within.
The Middle-Kingdom of Egypt, which proceeded the New Kingdom, had promised to honor the Israelites and allow them to stay in Egypt, thanks to Joseph’s abilities to save Egypt from seven years of famine and drought. However, the new regime decided to cancel the agreement. So Thutmose I started working the Children of Israel to death and stopped them from breeding. He commanded that every newborn Israelite male should be killed at birth.
To save their newborn son, a couple descended from Israel put the boy in a box and let it float down the stream where Thutmose’s daughter took a bath. She gave him the name Moses and decided to adopt him. This happened back in 1513 BC.
Moses grew up, and in 1482 BC, while Thutmose III intensified hostilities against the Enlilites outside Egypt and the Israelites within, Moses killed an Egyptian overseer who was brutalizing Israelites. The Pharaoh put a death warrant on Moses, who managed to escape to the Sinai peninsula, where he married the daughter of a Priest.
When Thutmose III died and Amenhotep II took over as Pharaoh, he let the death warrant on Moses expire. The Enlil (YHVH) showed himself to Moses as a burning bush and told him to go to Egypt and show his magical powers to the Pharaoh, so that he would free the Israelites.
Moses obeyed and went back to Egypt. However, Amenhotep II was not too impressed with Moses’ sorcery. On the contrary, the Pharaoh decided to triple the work burden for the Israelites. YHVH decided to have the Pharaoh abide by using other means. He therefore engineered a series of plagues, infestations, cattle diseases, three days of darkness and weather abnormalities (such as today’s HAARP), followed by the murder of all non-Israelite firstborn children and cows in Egypt–payback for the previous Pharaoh’s decision to kill off any first-born Israelite male.
This did the trick, and in 1433 BC, he let the Israelites go.
However, when the mass exodus from Egypt started, Amenhotep noticed that they seemed to be trapped between the desert’s edge and the lakes (then the Red Sea), so the Pharaoh sent his chariots to re-capture Moses and his people.
YHVH then used technology to divide the Sea so the Israelites could cross, but when the Egyptians followed, he closed the opening and drowned Amenhotep’s soldiers.
YHVH then led his people to the edge of the Sinai peninsula. He gave them food and protected them from enemies. In addition, he had the Israelites kill 3,000 people for refusing to declare exclusive loyalty to him and 23,000 Israelites for having premarital sex. Such “crime” was reserved for the promiscuous gods, only, apparently.
YHVH had the Israelites walk through the desert for forty years, until they camped at the foot of Mt. Sinai.
7. The Ten Commandments and a Blood-Thirsty God
When they all had camped by Mt. Sinai, YHVH commanded Moses up the mount. Once there, the Anunnaki god told Moses what his rules would be from thereon out to successfully obey him.
The Israelites all agreed to the terms. YHVH landed with his ship on the top of the mount, where Moses was waiting, and spoke with an amplifier to the crowd at the bottom of the mount.
He told them that he, YHVH, was their only God, and no one of the 600,000 people were ever again allowed to speak the name of any other god. He further spoke out all the ten commandments with a full and loud voice. Although many people still know them today (or most of them) by heart since we had them impregnated to us in our childhood, I am going to repeat them all here. Many of them are good rules to follow–just common sense–but we need to remember that they were forced upon the people with the sole intention to have the crowd more easily manipulated and controlled.
My comments are in blue (and within parentheses in case this paper is printed in black and white):
- You shall have no other gods before Me (sets the stage for Commandment #2)
- You shall not make for yourself a carved image–any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth (for he is a jealous god and he will punish the children for the iniquity of their parents, to the third to the fourth generation of those who reject him. For those who love him and follow his commandments, the jealous god will love their ancestors down to the 1,000th generation. (Remember that these Commandments are still in use and valid in the eyes of the “gods”, up until today, and when they return, they count on that you obey them, or this Commandment 2 will apply)
- You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain (God will not acquit anybody who misuses his name)
- Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy (For six days you shall labor and do all your work. But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and consecrated it. (Perfect way of making sure people know whom they worship. This is YHVH’s unique rule, and when followed, he can see who is his follower and who is not)
- Honor your father and your mother (normally good advice, but also a way to make sure the children listen to their parents, so the worship continues down the generations)
- You shall not murder (only reserved for god and the other gods, whom you are not allowed to mention)
- You shall not commit adultery (see comment on Commandment 6)
- You shall not steal (see comment on Commandment 6)
- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor (again, good advice, but here used to keep the sheep in their fold. As little conflicts as possible makes it easier for “God”)
- You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s (see comment on Commandment 9)
The “god” also declared that he wanted women and children subjugated to male family heads. Right there, the Enlil created the man dominated society, which has been played out ever since that day. The Enlil knew that the power to break out of YHVH’s prison laid with the Female Energy (emotions and an open heart chakra), and he feared that if women, who usually carry more female energy than men, he wanted to suppress this energy, again to be able to control us more easily. Today’s “women’s liberation” in the 60s and 70s had nothing to do with equality between sexes, but was a Rockefeller instigated and sponsored program to make women become more like men–the ultimate suppression of the female energy and to break up the family structure, which they know is very powerful.
YHVH had prepared stone tablets to give to Moses. They were inscribed on both sides, emphasizing his Commandments. For forty days, up on the mount, YHVH/the Enlil showed Moses how to build a temple–he even showed him a scale model. He also gave Moses a model of the box–the Ark of the Covenant) to put the stone tablets in. The Ark also had, beneath the tablets, a receiver (sporting 2 gold cherubs), so the Israelites could voice-message him and get his “Yes” or “No” answers. He appointed Moses’ son Aaron and his sons as Priests (magicians) and specified protective clothing they needed to wear when they approached the Ark to avoid radiation poisoning. However, man is curious, and later on, people couldn’t help themselves but trying to look to see what was in the Ark. For this “high crime”, YHVH killed 50,000 people in Bethshemesh.
Aaron was deeply worried about his brother, who’d been up on the mount for over a month and feared he was dead, so he tried to attract the Anunnaki’s attention by building a golden calf, a symbol of the Enlil/YHVH, to send out a signal to him, as he dared not go up and see. But when Moses finally came down, he got infuriated over the calf, so he killed the builders, and in his rage, destroyed both the calf and the stone tablets (in his effort to have his people follow the 2nd Commandment, Moses instead broke the 6th Commandment, something that’s rarely talked about within religious groups).
YHVH raged as well, and threatened to abandon the Israelites. However, after a while he “cooled his jets” (pun intended) and produced a “pillar of cloud” in front of Moses’ tent, and from a spaceship (called a “Kabod”) inside the cloud, YHVH broadcast that he forgave the Israelites for the calf and told Moses to engrave new tablets. Apparently, he was not at all angry at Moses for have destroy his carefully designed stone tablets and killed some of his own people, but gently just told him to create new ones. It was apparently also a non-issue that Moses played “God” and broke the Sixth Commandment. It took Moses an additional forty days to create new tablets, spending that time together with YHVH on the mount. During all these days, Moses was not allowed to see his God’s face. When he returned to his men, Moses glowed with radiation from being exposed to YHVH’s shuttlecraft.
Moses died, perhaps due to the effects of radiation, and his general, Joshua, who had YHVH’s knowledge of astronomical events and weapons, conquered much of Canaan for YHVH, immediately breaking Commandment 6 with his God’s blessings. To aid in the process, YHVH killed 120,000 men and enslaved 200,000 women and children. While he was at it and his adrenaline was still working overload, he also had 1 million Ethiopians murdered. All together, YHVH, the Enlil, with his horrible techno-weapons and engineered plagues, killed 10,000 Canaanites and Perizzites, and 10,000 Moabites.
The defenders of YHVH often say that the people he killed were “evil” and that they deserved it. That, to me, does not resonate at all. Even when some of the pharaohs acted out on the Israelites, they repeated what the Anunnaki had given them in form of genes (DNA), and not the least, from the “gods” own behavior: destructive action →revenge → destructive action → worse revenge, in an endless, immature to the extreme, cycle. What kind of gods are they? I am not justifying what some of us humans did and do under the influence of these immature gods, but I am just saying there are logical explanations. The genes which include traits like murder, rape, revenge, jealousy, service-to-self behavior, and more, would most probably not be dominant traits in many people on Earth if it wasn’t for them. Some people still look up to these gods, but for what reason? Here on Earth, today, there are millions of people who are much more advanced than they are, in the sense of maturity and spiritual evolvement. Hold your heads high, humans, because every day most of us are doing good deeds for self and for others, in spite of the negative and degraded genes that were implanted in us. This shows we have something very admirable, honorable and desirable–we have strong, loving hearts! And this we can’t thank the Anunnaki for. We are who we are (when at our best) in spite of them.
But have faith, people of Earth who have been waiting; this merciful “god” and all his merry fellows are soon coming back to spread their enlightenment and blessings over us. Have mercy on us all!
