ANCIENTS by Merwin
Yeah I know... this is likely to get a little "out there" for nearly everyone but please bear with me..?
Previously - on the comments of my last Hub, “A heartless God..? Ha… Ha… more like heartless people.” I posted this comment and thought it useful to begin this Hub with, I will notate when the selected comment ends and the rest begins… (some editing for clarity and grammar was made)
Stopping here this morning before moving on to finish the next Hub... ANCIENTS.
On the one hand... (you Chasuk, say) there is no God or anything else that might be considered supernatural. That the monster that is man, will hopefully one day grow out of murderous ways but you do not seem hopeful. (fair assessment?)
On the other hand... (I believe) there is a God and He, for the last maybe, 20 thousand years, has been maneuvering through the many efforts and failures of man's attempts to prove that he is his own god. Keeping man from totally destroying everything, perhaps, hundreds of times, and this all, to provide an ultimate eternal solution that showcases man's failure to be god over himself.
The rebellion in the Garden, was effectively, two perfect minds being obstinate and stating, "We want to rule ourselves, we will eat the fruit and know what we need to know to do so. We will be our own gods."
We have, in those many eras since, done nothing to prove that we are anything but desperately wicked and murderous, with some exceptions. And invariably those exceptions can trace their source to the influences provided by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
He, God, has sought to provide us a better way out of our self absorption dilemma from the very beginning, but it must be done in a way that truthfully shows our murderous choices from beginning to end. It must be done in a way that clearly... for all eternity, illustrates that we had every opportunity to do it right, and proved ourselves fiends every time.
We proved ourselves to be fiends. We did this while manipulating the hearts and loyalties of the devoted, and, while seeking to eradicate everyone's desire for God/gods. We have used religion for power, and we have used man’s desire for freedom from religions for the same end, in all cases we have proven that we are murderous.
God... through Jesus has provided the saving solution and we have provided His proof, and it has all, finally come full circle in this generation.
END OF PREVIOUS HUB COMMENT.
In the last Hub I asked some questions and made statements about the many unexplainable structures that have been found around the globe. Most of which defy post flood descriptions, and that… might want to make us re-examine the descriptions for the most obvious obvious example, the Giza Pyramid.
Because of its accessibility to many sequential civilizations, a few theories for its construction have been rendered, but, few have departed from the earliest accounts or theories of its building. These earliest treatments in hieroglyphics have been considered by many, as the actual historical documentation as to the hows and whys of its development, but I disagree with this assessment.
I consider those accounts to be their best guess as to the Giza construction. It may be an educated guess, for they may have constructed the lesser pyramids as best as they could using the techniques they describe, but the larger ones those descriptions remain doubtful.
It must be said here that the earliest penetration of the Giza pyramid is in 820 A.D. by the Arab, Caliph Abdullah Al Manum, http://unmuseum.mus.pa.us/kpyramid.htm . There was no treasure, no mummy, it was never a tomb. There were no carved hieroglyphics of any kind, and certainly none that would describe the builder, providing him with praise for the building.
In an ancient civilization that thrives on carving hieroglyphs everywhere, one may reasonably speculate that, that was not the civilization that built Giza’s largest structure.
My suggestion is, (borrowed from many sources, secular and otherwise) that the Giza Pyramid and many other similarly constructed (those beyond explanation by modern science) structures were pre-flood, by our high-technologically advanced ancestors, that were, for the most part in rebellion to God.
Brothers and Sisters in Jesus, below are links to History Channel programs. These programs are looking at these actual sites of ancient structures and are drawing extra terrestrial conclusions which I do not agree with, but these places actually exist. Remember these are not believers that put these programs together but even they speculate on the likely-hood of the flood.
My conclusion is that these structures were built pre-flood, so please watch the videos (none of which are longer than fifteen minutes) with that understanding, it will make it much easier to get through.
