And Abram said unto himself 'Surely these are not gods (Enki and Enlil) that made the earth and all mankind, but these are the servants of Yahweh! Book of Jasher Chapter IX: 19.
Zecharia Sitchin is a brilliant author and contemporary Ufologists. He is the author of several very popular new age books reporting his polytheistic interpretation of Sumerian, Biblical, and Egyptian history.
He states that the Sumerian account of the origin of civilization predates that of the Biblical record and implies that it is therefore a more accurate report of our origins.
He implies in his book, "Divine Encounters", that the Hebrew account in Genesis of the creation of man is an inferior record of the origins of man and was primarily plagiarized by Moses from the Sumerian cuneiform clay tablets and the Epic of Gilgamesh.
He suggests that Yahweh may be interpreted as the Hebrew expression of the gods of Sumeria Enki or Enlil. He maintains a polytheistic view of the gods os Sumeria and the Jews. He further goes on to attempt to establish that Yahweh may be in fact Enlil the Sumerian demigod.
"And the story of Man's Divine Encounters, the subject of this book, is so filled with parallels between the biblical experiences and those of encounters with the Annunnaki by other ancient peoples, that the possibility that Yahweh was one of 'them' must be seriously considered." P. 347.
"The question and its implied answer, indeed, arise inevitably. That the biblical creation narrative with which the Book is beyond dispute." p. 347.
"That the biblical Eden is a rendering of the Sumerian E.DIN is almost self evident. P. 347.
"That the tale of the Deluge and Noah and the ark is based on the Akkadian Atra-Hasis texts and the earlier Sumerian Deluge tale in the Epic of Gilgamesh, is certain." P. 347
"That the plural 'us' in the creation of The Adam segments reflects the Sumerian and Akkadian record of the discussions by the leaders of the Anunnaki that led to the genetic engineering that brought Homo sapiens about, should be obvious. p. 347.
"Indeed, in the very tale--the tale of the Deluge--where the identification of Yahweh with Enki appears the clearest, confusion in fact shows up. The roles are switched, and all of a sudden Yahweh plays the role not of Enki but of his rival Enlil.
In the Mesopotamian original texts, it is Enlil who is unhappy with the way Mankind has turned out, who seeks its destruction by the approaching calamity, and who makes the other Annunaki leaders swear to keep all that a secret from Mankind." P. 350 & 351.
While claiming to have drawn his conclusions that Yahweh was one of the Sumerian Gods by having read the Book of Jasher, then he states that the Sumerian history substantiates his view that Yahweh is the "b'nai Elohim".
""Joshua 10:13 refers to the Book of Jasher, which is also listed as a known source text in II Samuel 1:18. These are but passing references to what must have been a much more extensive trove of earlier texts." P. 5.
"The Books of Nathan and Gad have vanished, as did other books--the Book of the Wars of Yahweh, the Book of Jasher, to mention two others--that the Bible speaks of...They all provide a wealth of insights into the nature and identity of Yahweh." P. 330.
True, the Book of Jasher does provide a wealth of insights into who Yahweh really is, it also provides clear evidence that Yahweh is not the god of the Sumerians. He is not Enki, Enlil or Thoth. Yahweh is creator God. The Great IAM!
The Book of Jasher clearly rejects polytheism.
The B'nai Elohim Are Not YHWH
Why it is that good exegesis (the science of literary interpretation) does not confuse the "sons of God" (b'nai Elohim) with Yahweh (YHWH) and the Elohim (Trinity--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).
The Anunnaki (Possibly the Biblical Anakim) attempted to supplant Yahweh but failed because of the faith and knowledge of Abram. The Anunnaki claimed that they were the b'nai Elohim that created man in their image. Abram choose to serve Yahweh and not Enki and Enlil or the gods of wood and stone. He said, "They are the servants of God Most High." Yahweh then selected Abram and his descendants to be the chosen people. A people that would bring a savior into the world through Abram's blood line. This savior would be God himself born of a virgin. The only way to break the blood curse was to provide the same blood as Adam, the man that God made in His image and likeness. This child would have the same blood as Adam and would break the D.N.A. blood curse of the Anunnaki (Anakim) and the Nephillim.
The Anunnaki had tweaked with the D.N.A. of mankind and changed Yahweh's plan for planet earth. They were usurpers and enemies of Yahweh. Yahweh had created man in His image and likeness but the Anunnaki intervened and altered mans D.N.A. to conform to their image. Something would have to be done by Yahweh to correct the fallen condition of man. Man was incapable of helping himself at this point. A special intervention was needed. Yahweh changed Abram's name to Abraham. Abraham was then commissioned by Yahweh to bring salvation and deliverance to the world from the Anunnaki. The Anunnaki had made a heretical and genetic attempt to get the people of the world to falsely believe that Enki and Enlil were the 'Elohim' and their creators. Yahweh would accomplish this D.N.A. correction by coming down to earth Himself as a human (incarnation) via the miraculous intervention and the conception of a virgin (Mary).
The Anunnaki are the fallen angels spoken of in the Book of Enoch, the Book of Jasher, Book of Jubilees and the Bible. They attempted to lift themselves up as God. They were caught and chained in Tartarus. "And the angels (Anunnaki) that did not keep their proper domain (the heavens), but left their own habitation (The 12th Planet?), He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day." The Book of Jude verse 6.
Yahweh has accomplished this adjustment through the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth--His incarnation. This correction is bestowed upon all humans by the same faith of Abraham. Salvation is by faith and faith alone. You too can be covered in the blood of the Lamb of Yahweh by a public confession of your faith. See New Life Form.
The Book of Jasher
"Is not this written in the Book of Jasher?" Joshua 10:13.
"Behold, it is written in the Book of Jasher" 2 Samuel 1:18.
The Book of Jasher contains a detailed account of the life of Abraham, the Father of the Hebrew nation. Abram was the son of Terah who was a prince, priest, and sorcerer for Nimrod.
And Terah the son of Nahor prince of Nimrod's host, was in those days very great in the sight of the king and his subjects, and the king and princes loved him, and they elevated him very high.
Terah was seventy years old when he begat him, and Terah called the name of his son Abram, because the king had raised him in those days, and dignified him above all his princes that were with him. Page 17, Chapter VIII, verse 49-51.
At the birth of Abram an omen appeared in the sky that suggested that the child would replace Nimrod as king. An attempt was made to kill Abram but Terah gave up a child of one of his slaves to the king's men to be slain and then sent Abram to Noah to be raised in secret.
And when Abram was in Noah's house thirty-nine years, and Abram knew Yahweh from three years old
He went in the ways of Yahweh until he the day of his death as Noah and his son Shem had taught him.
And all the sons of the earth in those days greatly transgressed against Yahweh
And they rebelled against Him
And they went after other gods (Enki and Enlil),
For they forgot Yahweh who had created heaven and earth;
And the inhabitants of the earth made unto themselves, at that time, every man his god; Enki and Enlil
And the sons of men served them and they became their gods (polytheism). Chapter IX verse 6.
It is very clear as in the Biblical account that the Watchers (the Annunaki) made an attempt to get the whole world to worship the Sumerian gods Enki and Enlil and to supplant Yahweh as creator God.
The Book of Jasher makes it very clear that Abram serves Yahweh, rejects the new demigods of the Annunaki, and vows to separate himself from the culture of Ur and serve Yahweh only.
And Abram said unto himself 'Surely these are not gods (Enki and Enlil) that made the earth and all mankind, but these are the servants of Yahweh
And Abram remained in the house of Noah and there knew Yahweh and His ways, and he served Yahweh all the days of his life
And all that generation forgot Yahweh
And served other gods--Enki and Enlil. Chapter IX: 19.
Later the conjurors of Nimrod discover that Abram is still alive and a threat to Nimrod's reign over Sumeria and they tried to kill Terah, Haran, and Abram. Terah escapes the death penalty when Haran confesses to the crime in order to save his father. They tied Abram and Haran up and throw them into the fiery furnace. Haran is consumed in the flames but Abram survives unharmed. Nimrod asks him how it is that he survived?
And Abram said to Nimrod
Yahweh, the creator of heaven and earth, in whom I serve has all in His power
He delivered me from the fire into which you threw me.
And Nimrod, the princes (the followers of Enki and Enlil), seeing that Abram was delivered from the fire
Came and bowed down before Abram.
And Abram said to them, 'Do not bow down to me, but bow down to Yahweh, the creator of the world who made you, and serve Him, and
Go in his ways for it is Yahweh who delivered me from out of this fire
And it is Yahweh who created the souls and spirits of all men
And formed man in his mother's womb, and brought him into the world,
And it is Yahweh who will deliver those who trust in him from all pain.
Chapter II: 35-38.
This is the account of why Terah and Abram left Ur. They had decided to serve Yahweh and reject the rebellion and coup of Enki and Enlil to supplant Yahweh as creator God.
The Book of Jasher records the commission of Abram to continue the denouncement of Enki and Enlil and to start a nation that will serve the true God--Yahweh:
And Yahweh appeared to Abram when he came to the land of Canaan
And said to him, 'This is the land which I gave unto thee and to thy seed after thee forever,
And I will make thy seed like the stars of heaven
And I will give unto thy seed for an inheritance all the lands which thou sees.' Chapter XIII:7.
The Biblical Account Agrees
Genesis Chapter 12 Verse 1-4.
"Now Yahweh had said to Abram:
'Get out of Ur from your kindred
And from your father's house
to a land that I will show you
I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
and make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.'"
It is made quite clear in these historical accounts that Enki and Enlil tried to supplant the name of Yahweh at the dawn of civilization with the help of Nimrod and all his conjurers.
Abram on the other hand rejected the Annunaki's attempt to destroy Yahweh's plan for Mankind and their desire to replace the name of Yahweh with the gods of Sumeria. Yahweh established the Hebrew nation through Abram now known as Abraham.
"Thou shall not take the name of the Lord Yahweh in vain." Ex. 20:7
"Whoever calls on the Name of Yahweh shall be saved." Joel 2:32
"Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Matthew 6:9
22 Reasons Why YHWH Can Not be the
b'nai Elohim or Enki or Enlil:
The term b'nai Elohim, used in Genesis Chapter 6, is a term that refers to heavenly beings not Jehovah God. It occurs four times in the Old Testament and is rendered "Angels of God" in the ancient Septuagint translation. Angels are the heavenly hosts (Genesis 2:1). The term b'nai means "a son of".
The intrusion of angels into human DNA resulted in unnatural offspring termed the Nephilim, which comes from the Hebrew naphal, (to fall), or the Fallen Ones. Jehovah God is not fallen. He is Holy. See Genesis 6.
It would seem unlikely that Jehovah God would be caught off guard as to the unnatural offspring (giants) since He was their creator.
Why would the creator of man want to have sex with its own creation? He could have created an equal Goddess.
The idea that creator God had sex with a lowly human creation would imply that God is involved with bestiality. Religions of the world tell us that Jehovah God, Yahweh, the Almighty Creator is holy.
To many Christians, the term Elohim refers to the triune nature of God. God is one God but three distinct persons. He is God in the preexistent, God in the creation, and God in the spirit. He is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The unity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit constitutes the Godhead.
The Book of Enoch calls the b'nai Elohim the angels, the sons of heaven, not the Elohim or Godhead. Chapter 7: 2.
The Book of Enoch makes a clear distinction between the Most High God Jehovah, the Great and Holy One, and the Watchers, the sons of God (b'nai Elohim).Chapter 10:1.
The Book of Enoch names their leader, Samyaza, and those who followed him. Never is the name of the Lord God Jehovah or Yahweh used. Chapter 7: 9.
The Book of Jubilees calls the b'nai Elohim the Watchmen or Watchers. Chapter 7: 17. There is never a confusion between YHWH and the watchers.
The Book of Jubilees says that the Lord God Jehovah judged the Watchers with a deluge on account of their fornication. Chapter 7: 19. The Book of Jubilees also makes a very clear distinction between Jehovah God and the Watchers.
In the Book of Enoch, Jehovah God tells Enoch, "Go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent thee (To Me) to pray for them; You ought to pray for men, and not men for you. Wherefore have you forsaken the lofty and holy heaven, which endures for ever, and have lain with women; have defiled yourselves with the daughters of men; have taken to yourselves wives; have acted like the sons of earth, and have begotten giants...Never therefore shall you obtain peace." Chapter 15 & 16.
In the Book of Enoch Jehovah God declares the Oath of Beka to determine the judgment of the Watchers and the Messiah to deliver man from the result of the sin of the Watchers the Annunaki. Chapter 68.
The Book of Jasher says that the Watchers cohabited with women to provoke the Lord God Jehovah. Chapter IV:18.
The Apostle Peter says that Jehovah God did not spare the angels who sinned. 2 Peter 2: 4-6.
The Book of Jude says that Jehovah God keeps the angels who did not keep their proper domain and went after strange flesh in everlasting chains. Jude 5-7.
The Book of Isaiah says that the Lord God Jehovah will call His b'nai Elohim back form the end of heaven at the end of the age for His anger to be judged. Isaiah 13: 3-16.
God created man to live in the garden not as a slave but to have dominion over it. Genesis 2: 15.
Man was a partner with Jehovah God in the garden. Genesis 2; 19.
After the fall Jehovah God promised to send a deliverer so that man could be restored to his original Edenic reality. Genesis 3:15.
The Book of Revelation tells us of a war that breaks out in heaven and Michael and his angels defeat the Watchers and they are cast out of heaven. Revelation 12: 7-12.
We are told that we can overcome the power of the Satans (Watchers or Aliens) by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony. Revelation 12:11.
Freedom from Fear!
You do not need to fear aliens, fallen angels, spiritual beings or extraterrestrials because the blood of the Lamb has paid the price of redemption and has set us free. The only return from heaven we need to heed is the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
"For as lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man (Jesus) be....Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." Matthew 24: 27-31.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels or demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of Yahweh that is in Messiah Jesus our Adonai." Romans 8:38.
