Ancient Mysteries of the Bible Part II
In the last discussion, we established a few baseline facts. God, angels and demons are all of celestial, or heavenly origin who do have physical form. Indeed, they are actually much like human beings. They have bodies and limbs, mouths and ears, they all can think and speak. This being said, they still seem inhuman to the casual scrutinization. But in this portion of our discussion, let us dig deep into the Bible and into the books written by the sons and grandsons of Adam, although not cannonized in Nicea, I believe they are acurrate histories written by the founders of the Hebrew/Jewish Nation. That being said, lets take a look at some of this information and apply it to what we have learned so far.
The Bible has many excellent examples of angelic beings interacting with humans. There are also references in Genesis about the Nephilim, or giants begat from couplings of fallen angels and human women. The Word is very matter of fact about this point, stating in Genesis Chapter 6, verse 4 "There were giants on the earth in those days and also afterward, when the sons of God came into the daughters of men and they bore children to them. These were mighty men who were of old, men of renown." Fascinating! .

The word Nephilim is often translated as giants, which is a legitimate translation but only partially accurate. Other accepted translations of the word are "those who descended" or "fell" or even "those who were cast down" or "came down". The Annunaki of Summerian texts are similarly described as "those who from heaven to earth came". Researchers like Stitchin, Gardner and Bramley have all equated the Nephilim with the Annunaki. Indeed, the Summerians recorded in great detail the stories about the Annunaki, which in most cases mirror the stories of angels and demons in the Bible stories.
So why is the Bible so quick to mention the origin of a race of giants that roamed the earth, yet fail to describe it further. The council of Nicea, you might say, robbed our Bible of this information when it voted out certain books that were in the pre-Nicean version of Gods word. When the pagan emperor Constantine tried to create a Bible suitable for all of the various factions of christianity, these books were lost to historys care. Thank God that these books have survived through the ravages of thousands of years to be read and understood today. For these apocryphal, gnostic and psuedapigriphal books are a part of the knowledge that will be multiplied in the end times. God wants us to study and understand his divine word. These books are part of the pre-Nicean Bible and stood as divine works for over 1000 years or more. Many believe Nicea was Providence, I do not. The pre-Nicean bible was studied by all of the Jewish Nation, even quoted many times by men of God in the Holy Bible we read today.
So again, we must take the Bible at its word. There were giants with extraterrestrial DNA in them roaming earth. These giants are described in greater detail in a book of the pre-Nicean Bible, written by the great, great grandson of Adam, Enoch. In the Book of Enoch we find a wealth of information about the Nephilim, who Enoch calls "watchers". I will attempt to outline it for you here.
Book of Enoch(Ethiopian) Chapter 6, verse 1 begins, "And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose for us wives from among the children of men and begat us children." The same thing we have read in Genesis 6:4 earlier. A second confirmation of the same set of facts. But the Book of Enoch goes on to say how these angels, or celestial beings from space had a leader named Semjaza, who made the other celestials swear an oath that they would share in the punishment that God would undoubtedly excercise against this infraction of the rules.
The Book of Enoch goes on to tell how there were 200 of these beings, led by Semjaza, who landed at Mt. Hermon and set about to have couplings with the beautiful earth women. And they were successful. Not only did these beings procreate and produce alien/human hybrid beings, they taught humans forbidden knowledge that God did not intend for us to ever have, thus paving the way for sin into our very culture. The Book of Enoch 7:1 states, "And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go into them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them aquainted with plants. And they became pregnant, and they bore great giants, whose heigth was three thousand ells. Who consumed all the aquisitions of men. And when men no longer could sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds and beasts, and reptiles and fish, and to devoure one anothers flesh, and to drink blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones."

The last parts of the above quote seem to strongly imply that the offspring of these unholy unions were abominations who cannibilized eachother, and who ate the flesh of humans. They drank blood and taught humans to use magic and alchemy, or the mixing of potions. Reading Enoch 8:1 we learn even more; "And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures." This alien being, Azazel taught the arts of war and the application and creation of cosmetics and vanity. Sinful behavior in Gods eyes. The Book of Enoch goes on to describe how Semjaza, the alien leader, teaches humans magic and astronomy, and how this forbidden knowledge created a wave of lust, fornication and sin in the race of human beings. It corrupted us as an entire people.
So lets review some points we have covered. The nature of angels seems to be very familiar to the nature of man as we see in our society today. War, lust and vanity. It is sad and true, that our fallen nature permeates every facet of our culture on a global scale. But these are not humans, are they? Why would an angel know how to make cosmetics, for example? Why would they need the knowledge of metal working in heaven? Well they did need it, apparently. And the references to magic are most intriguing. Enchantments and alchemical potion making straight from the historical account of a direct descendant of Adam. Things were very different in the old days.
It was an angel that was placed to guard the gates of Eden when Adam and Eve were cast out. This angel was orders from God and armed with a sword. This seems very "martial" to me. Is God the head of a military styled race of beings from space? Over and over in the Bible we are given examples of this military type hierarchy. It is obvious to me that what see described in the ancient writings is a clear description of an organized race of martially governed beings.
In the Book of Adam 21.1 we see the second mention of angelic/human interaction when Eve is separated from Adam and in labor with Cain. Twelve angels and two "virtues" came to Adam at Eves request to inform him of her struggle with childbirth pain. He then went to her and BOA 21.2 says that the archangel Micheal was standing to thr right of Eve and he his face to her chest and said; "Blessed are you Eve on account of Adam, for his prayers and supplications are great. I was sent to you that you may recieve our help. Arise now and prepare yourself for birth." The first birth was supervised by not just an angel, but the highest ranking general of the whole celestial race under God.
Also found in the BOA verse 22.2 it is Micheal who is sent by God to give him different types of seeds and then the archangel teaches them both in the ways of agriculture. From the previous discussion we know that agricultural was known by God and used by Him in his creation of the earth. God gives them this knowledge in order to save them from starving. His mercy is as old as creation.
Cain murders Able
It is a pair of "fallen angels", commonly called demons, who take on the image of Cain and Able and act out the "murder scene" of Cain picking up a sharp stone, slicing Cains throat and then drinking the blood. These beings introduced the first murder into the line of Adam. In BOA 25.2 it tells how Adam is speaking to Seth, his third son born after Ables murder, about the time of Eden and the fall and how he was taken "in a chariot like the wind, its wheels were afire and I was caught up(or taken up) into the paradise of the just.' Adam describes seeing "the Lord seated, his face like fire burning intolerable. Many thousands of angels were at the right and left of his chariot." This story obviously is recounting a trip in a craft into space, possibly to a planet or larger craft, where Adam saw God and thousands of angels.
What does this imply? Exactly what the Bible says. That God and his angels are what the Bible says they are, beings from space. This is a bold statement but the ancient scriptures are very clear on this point. As I have mentioned, as a child I imagined angels as invisible beings, incorpreal even. And demons were imagined much the same way, as formless entities whose only power was in your head. But the writings of Genesis, Enoch and other human authors of the age have recorded some explosive facts. Angels could have sex and produce offspring. This alone screams of a biological form. These beings spoke and were heard, they taught man and man learned. They were not monstrous aliens as portrayed in our sci-fi movies, rather they were magnificent and sexual, clearly able to seduce beautiful women in the region. What does this add to our developing understanding of angels and demons? They are not winged and haloed, with white gowns, nor are they the horned, pitchfork wielding tormentors of middle age style art. Interestingly, the winged, harp strumming angels, nor the red horned devil are never described in the Bible. These images are unique to mans imagination. It seems that in the final analysis, angels, demons and God are truely physical beings, with some very human attributes. They are capable of sex, greed, pride and all myriad of sin. Like man, the can fail and rebel, they can question authority and they can make war. They also know magic and alchemy, maybe one thing that is different than mans failed love affair with the occult. They are the origins of our civilization. They gave us knowledge that God deemed unfit for his great creation, the jewish man.
