Vipers II: The Mystery Religion of Nimrod

 Previously: A Generation of Vipers

Welcome readers to part two of this viper series, where we will plunge deeper down the rabbit hole. Before I begin I want to warn you that this series may cause some cognitive dissonance for you, as these concepts may seem surreal and even bizarre. I admit that much of this is based upon my own research and opinions, and as I stated in part one, I could be totally wrong

But with that said please indulge me in a mental exercise. I want you to think of everything you "know for sure," or "without a shadow of a doubt," or things you take for granted for "common knowledge." Now ask yourself this question: how did you come to those conclusions? Did you read them in a book? Did you hear some other person say them? Did you "feel" that they were true"? Was it intuition? Did your own soul whisper them to you? Did science "prove" them? Did God reveal them? 

Let me ask again: How you do know what's true? How is it even possible to know the truth? Consider, for instance, that everything written in history books comes from some fallible man or woman, and is often skewed by the writer's biases or opinions. Ultimately, you’re left with someone else’s interpretation of primary and secondary sources. How then can you trust anything written in any book? Similarly, how can you trust any "authority" figure speaking on any topic? Are they not also fallible people with their own biases and opinions? Where did they get all their "facts"? What were the biases and opinions of their mentors? Who was funding their research? What books where they influenced by? And what about personal feelings and intuition? How do you know the difference between what you want to believe and what is true? Indeed, how do you know that your intuition is correct? 

What about science? Can we trust the scientific method? After all, science consists of nothing more than a bunch of theories that have not yet been falsified. One example is the law of gravity. According to Newton it was the mass of celestial bodies that determined the gravitational pull. But according to Einstein, space and time are not uniform, and gravity is created by the bending or curving of space. The sun for example, is so large compared to other planets in our solar system that they get trapped in the "bend" the sun makes in space. It's like holding a piece of fabric by both ends and dropping a heavy ball in the center of it. The ball makes a dip in the fabric, and if smaller objects like marbles are dropped on the same surface, they roll toward the heavy ball (that analogy came from this article). Both Newton and Einstein were right, but Einstein added another dimension of knowledge to our concept of gravity. 

My point is, we are looking at reality through a dark glass, only gathering bits and pieces of the puzzle. We are attempting to comprehend the whole through the incomplete parts we have to work with. God has revealed some of the whole to us, but in most of what we think we know we are totally groping in the dark. In our search for truth we must be indefatigable. We must be willing to cast off falsehoods and disbelief when we discover that we have been misled. Pride cannot be part of the equation. We have to be willing to open our eyes to concepts that are hidden beneath the surface. Einstein and Newton are perfect examples of this. Newton's theory of gravity was so straight forward, so cut and dry and commonsensical, that it seemed foolish to look for any other explanation of gravity other than shear mass. But Einstein looked where no one else was looking, he peeled the veneer away from the Newtonian gravity model and discovered that reality is more than meets the eye. He discovered that three-dimensional reality wasn't straight forward, and that it "curves" and "bends" in ways that the human brain has difficulty comprehending. Whenever we think that something is concrete is and set in stone, someone like Einstein comes along and throws a monkey wrench into our paradigm, and we have to start over in our search for truth. We can therefore never be comfortable in our paradigms, or in our self-perceived notions of history and reality. 

According to the Book of Mormon, the one fool-proof way to discover truth is through the power of the Holy Ghost. Moroni leaves us with this simple testimony: 

And by the power of the Holy Ghost, ye may know the truth of all things. (Moroni 10:5)

It seems so simple yet it is intensely complicated. In this one statement an entire lifetime of diligent study, prayer, pondering, and searching are all implied. If we don't take the initiative to put the information into our heads, the Holy Ghost will have nothing to confirm to us. We must search things out, we must perform the labor of intellectual blood, sweat, and tears that inches us ever closer to the truth. It's a struggle and it was meant to be. As Joseph Smith once said, to commune with God, we must first comprehend the "darkest abyss." We have to "stretch" our minds to the utmost heavens, yet peer into the darkest recesses of our reality to uncover the most hideous evil. We have to comprehend both darkness and light. 

One of the purposes of my blog is to attempt to bring to light the "hidden things of darkness." I try to follow the Spirit, and am doing my best to avoid leading you astray. But just like everything else ever said or written by a fallible human, what I'm writing could be wrong. At best it is incomplete, and at worst it is utterly false. For me the blog is not a destination that I have arrived at, it's an intellectual journey that is only beginning. And I'm not asking you to believe a single word I've written here, I'm just inviting you to open your mind and consider things you may have never considered. 

With that said let's dive into to Nimrod and his Mystery Religion. When I began this blog last fall I was under the assumption that the Mystery Schools originated in Egypt. I was wrong. They are much older. The scriptural record indicates they probably originated with Cain and flourished before the flood, but the first record we have of them is in ancient Mesopotamia. And it is not a historical record like we have of the Egyptian mysteries, it is a mythological record. Sometimes it is only through myth that truth can be discovered. When you study the historical myths and legends of different cultures you find common threads, and a story begins to emerge. Well, it just so turns out that the main character of that story is Nimrod, the mighty hunter and world's first totalitarian. 

As Above, So Below

The above phrase is a classic slogan of the Mystery schools. It essentially means that things which exist in the heavens also exist on earth, but the esoteric meaning goes much deeper. There is a pattern to everything that has been created, and that pattern can be seen in all life and matter. For instance, the planetary bodies in space move around like protons and neutrons in an atom. The sheer mass of celestial bodies in our solar system and the infinitesimal size of atomic particles are astounding to our finite minds. Similarly, the biological ecosystems that exist in nature between plants and animals resemble the ecological systems of microscopic bacteria, gut flora, and fungi that interact with living cells in our bodies. There does seem to be a natural and rhythmic cadence to God's creations, but the Mystery schools take this concept to a whole new level. To them the above/below principle seems to be all-encompassing. It permeates every initiation ritual, saturates every secret oath and combination, and infiltrates every social, economic, and religious dogma they incorporate into society.

Among the many representations of this principle are the ying and yang, the Hermetic marriage of the dualistic nature of oneself, the macrocosm and the microcosm, and the Mosaic Pavement of checkerboard squares of black and white found on the floors in Masonic temples. Remember, this is what they believe, not me, but you must understand it if you want to understand your enemy. And if you're a Christian, make no mistake, you are their enemy. To understand Nimrod and his Mystery Religion you must have a grasp of the basic symbolism of the Baphomet, the androgenous, half-man, half-goat of Mendes that represents Lucifer himself. See the image below.


First of all notice the hands. One is pointing up and one is pointing down, symbolizing the "as above so below" philosophy. Also notice this is a man with breasts like a woman, symbolizing Hermes, or the hermaphrodite. Also notice that he is part-goat, a hybrid, half man and half animal, also known as the mythological satyr. This represents man's dual nature as a human with animalistic instincts, but in this case the meaning goes deeper. In my last post I quoted apocryphal books that describe how man was mixing the DNA of animals and humans in the days of Noah, and that all flesh had "corrupted its way" and that was why God had to destroy the earth with a flood. Notice the symbol of the Caduceus or the medical staff appearing to come out of the genitals of the Baphomet? This is a symbol of the regenerative force, the "lost key of freemasonry" or the phallus of Osiris. But it also looks like the double helix structure of DNA, and I assure you, this is not coincidence. Have you ever wondered why John the beloved refers to the last days deceiver/dictator as "the beast"? Have you ever stopped to think that this might be literal? And have you considered that those who take his mark, in their hand or forehead, might actually be subjecting their DNA to fundamental changes? Changes that may remove them from the family of God, and how can God save something that is not His own? Revelations 14 specifically says that those who take the mark and worship the beast will not be saved. What is really going on here? What kind of last days deception is Satan planning? 

Returning to the Baphomet above you can see a hexagram on his forehead. This is a six-pointed star and is what witches and sorcerers use to put a spell or a hex on people. Before you laugh that last sentence off you need to know that witchcraft is real, it is part of Nimrod's Mystery Religion. If you don't believe me then believe Mormon. He told us that these things were prevalent among the Nephites:
And it came to pass that there were sorceries, and witchcrafts, and magics; and the power of the evil one was wrought upon all the face of the land... (Mormon 1:19

Now scroll back up to the Baphomet one more time. Notice that you can trace a triangle between each horn and the goatee. A triangle is an esoteric symbol to the Mystery schools, and a single triangle has three sides, put two of them together and you get six sides, and what did John say the number of the beast was? 666. Also encapsulated in the horns and the goatee is a pentagram in the shape of an upside down star. Here is an image so you can see what I'm talking about:

Notice how easily you can superimpose the horns and goatee in the appropriate triangles above? Also notice that there are five triangles circling a pentagon? We see this symbol in the Pentagon building that houses our Department of Defense, an obvious allusion to the god they serve. Now notice the wings on the Baphomet. These symbolize Satan's ability to appear as a angelic being of light, which is a clue as to his great power to deceive. In the last days, when the beast is unveiled, he will seem so good, so wise, so benevolent, so paternal, so loving, and so powerful. Most will marvel after him, thinking nothing of throwing Jesus under the bus, to grope and grovel for their place in line to receive the mark. 

OK, let's get to the main topic of the post. What does Nimrod have to do with all of this? A whole lot.

The Mother and Child

You're probably wondering by now what in the world the thumbnail image of this post has to do with my topic. Who is the woman holding the child, and what does she have to do with Nimrod? She is actually both his mother and his wife, and no, they are not from backwoods Missouri, this is a part of the Mystery Religion. These world elites really like to keep it in the family, but I digress. The woman and the child in the image are Semiramis and Tammuz. Semiramis was supposedly the real wife of Nimrod. The story goes that she was a prostitute before she married him, and after he died she reigned as queen of Babylon for another forty years. Unfortunately, there is no historical evidence proving she existed at all, but pieces of her story lay shrouded in myth. And it doesn't matter what is historically true when we're talking about Mystery Babylon, all that matters is what they believe, because what they believe affects us. 

As the legend goes, after Nimrod died his spirit was reincarnated into a child that Semiramis named Tammuz, born on December 25th, who became a representation of the sun. This was the origin of sun worship. If you look at the image of the mother and child you will notice halos around each of their heads, which represents the sun. Hence, Nimrod, Semiramis, and Tammuz became the model for the trinity, the "father" dying and being resurrected in the form of his son, Tammuz. Semiramis became known as the Queen of Heaven, and took on many names throughout the centuries in different cultures. Her Babylonian name was Ishtar, the fertility goddess, who was worshipped by a celebration of egg hunting. The eggs represent fertility, and hunting them was symbolic of her son Tammuz, the "great hunter." We do this same ritual today and call it Easter. Nimrod's Babylonian name was Belus, which became Baal to the Israelites, the god who demanded child sacrifice at the altar of Molech, another name he was known by. Tammuz was also known by many names. He represented the half-man, half-god deity that came to save mankind from themselves. He was the first post-flood hero, the first "mighty man," the first man of "renown." Below is a chart cataloging all the different names given to these deities by many different cultures throughout history. You will recognize many of them:



As you can see, the same pantheon of false gods have always existed, just under different names. When the Lord said, "thou shalt have no other gods before me," these are the other gods he was referencing. One has to ask the question, how did these other gods become so powerful and influential among cultures? It was the Mystery schools who inculcated these gods into societies, both ancient and modern. Remember they credit themselves with introducing religion to the profane. They worship Lucifer in all his forms; I quoted Dag Hammarskjold, in this blog post, saying that the altar in the UN Meditation Room was dedicated to the god "whom man worships under many names and in many forms." Look again at the names in the chart above, these dominate every aspect of our culture and society, even the very names of the week. Satan has inserted himself into every facet of our lives, without us realizing it. 

As I stated above, the same pantheon of gods have always existed, only changing in name. This pantheon made it's way into Christianity when Constantine was the emperor of Rome. God the Father, Mary, and Jesus, became the new Nimrod, Semiramis, and Tammuz. Below is a Catholic depiction of Mary and Jesus:

If you scroll back up to my thumbnail image you will find that it looks identical to Semiramis and Tammuz, including the halos around their heads representing the sun. This is nothing but a good-ol' bait and switch by Satan, the great trickster. What better way to subvert and replace the real God than by subtly inserting His story into a false religious paradigm. This has caused untold amounts of Christians to worship false deities while thinking they are worshipping Jesus Christ. Consider that every major holiday, Christmas, Easter, Valentines day, St. Patrick's day, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, are all tributes to false gods, going back to Nimrod and Semiramis. They are rituals that have nothing to do with Jesus. In fact, they are offensive to the real God, who wanted the Israelites to be different than the pagans by revealing to them the Jewish holidays like Passover and Jubilees, which are the true holy days. The modern holidays are Satanic substitutes. 



Now notice the image to the right. This is Semiramis and the child Tammuz represented by the Egyptians, who called them Isis and Horus, compared with the Catholic depiction of Mary and Jesus at the far right. Notice the horns around the sun symbol in the image to the left. These horns symbolize Taurus, the bull, which is another representation of Nimrod. Remember that the Baphomet, the symbol of Lucifer, is depicted with horns. There is quite a history to these horns, and I believe it goes back to the antediluvians who were crossbreeding animals and corrupting DNA. This technology was revealed to them by Satan and his minions, who were attempting to destroy the image of God and the boundaries He set for humans and animals. 

It seems that we often consider the Israelites as primitive dupes who like cavemen were so enthralled with shiny things that the sight of a golden calf was enough to get them to forsake the true God. The complete opposite is true, they were intelligent and knew about the pagan deities of other cultures. Remember they spent 400 years in Egyptian captivity and must have known and practiced the Egyptian religion. They knew exactly what they were doing when they built the golden calf. It was a representation of Taurus, the bull, Nimrod himself. It is no coincidence that they built this false image during the 40 days that Moses was up in Sinai receiving the ten commandments. They did not want to worship the real God, but rather went whoring after the false ones. Moses was so mad when he saw the calf that he threw the stone tablets on the ground and literally broke them. This is where the term "breaking the law" comes from. Throughout Israelite history they were intrigued by the Canaanite gods and often fell into apostacy and false worship. Baal and Ashtoreth were the names the Israelites gave to the Canaanite gods Belus and Ishtar, who were just different names for Nimrod and Semiramis. There are a few interesting scriptures in the Bible that confirm this. Ezekiel, for one, was shown in vision that Tammuz was being worshipped in the temple in Jerusalem:
Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. (Ezekiel 8:14)

Weeping for Tammuz was a lamentation ritual that was passed down from ancient Mesopotamia. It is the same story as Osiris and Isis. Remember that Isis searched the underworld for Osiris after he was killed by his brother Set? Remember also that his body had been cut up into fourteen pieces and spread over all of Egypt? She found all the pieces except one, the phallus, and using magic she fashioned a new one and resurrected Osiris long enough to have one more union, in which Horus was born. Well, Tammuz and Nimrod were often considered the same person, much like Osiris and Horus; two versions of the same god, AKA, the Father and the Son. Weeping for Tammuz was a resurrection ritual. They were attempting to bring him back from the dead. Have you ever noticed that in scores of movies, cartoons, and television series, especially in the horror and sci-fi genre, there is a resurrection theme? It seems like there is always some ancient entity that is attempting to come back to life, or to come through some portal or astral door, back into our dimension. Well, that story did not come out of thin air, it has ancient roots. One modern example is the classic movie Ghostbusters. 

In Ghostbusters the god Gozer, keeper of the underworld, was attempting to come back into the physical plane and rule over the earth. To unlock the door to this dimension the Gatekeeper and Keymaster needed to assume the form of beasts. In the movie they are depicted as demon dogs with horns (I'll get to the significance of horns later when I get into Nimrod). Zuul, a minion of Gozer, was known as the Gatekeeper. Gozer was a pagan god and was actually worshiped by the ancient Sumerians, Mesopotamians, and Hittites. Worshippers of Gozer believed that the god would one day come back to earth to subdue and destroy it. Zuul was also worshipped by these ancient groups as a demigod who held the keys to the underworld. Where have we heard this story before? In the Book of Revelations. This is the story of the Anti-Christ, the beast himself. 

John tells us that the beast will ascend out of the bottomless pit. What is he talking about? In the Book of Enoch, we are told that the Fallen Angels (the Watchers) were sent to a prison within the depths of the earth: 

... bind them for seventy generations underneath the earth, even to the day of judgment, and of consummation, until the judgment, the effect of which will last for ever, be completed...they shall be bound until the consummation of many generations. (Chapter 10:15, 17)

Enoch also explains that the bodies of the giants were inhabited by evil spirits, and that they would one day come forth again during the days of "slaughter and destruction":

Now the giants, who have been born of spirit and of flesh, shall be called upon the earth evil spirits, and on earth shall be their habitation. Evil spirits shall proceed from their flesh, because they were created from above; from the holy Watchers was their beginning and primary foundation. Evil spirits shall they be upon the earth, and the spirits of the wicked shall they be called. The habitation of the spirits of heaven shall be in heaven; but upon the earth shall be the habitation of terrestrial spirits, who are born on earth. 

The spirits of the giants shall be like clouds, which shall oppress, corrupt, fall, content, and bruise upon the earth. They shall cause lamentation. No food shall they eat; and they shall be thirsty; they shall be concealed, and shall not rise up against the sons of men, and against women; for they come forth during the days of slaughter and destruction. (Chapter 15:8-10, Emphasis added) 

This theme of Satan and his demons being banished to a place under the earth is consistent with scripture:

And thus he [Satan] goeth up and down, to and fro in the earth, seeking to destroy the souls of men. (D&C 10:27, Emphasis added) 

Also note that the Lord makes distinctions between things that are on the earth, in the earth, and under the earth (See Moses 6:63). We know that different dimensions exist beyond time and space, and maybe John's "bottomless pit" is simply another dimension where God has banished the hosts of heaven that followed Satan. And perhaps, in my speculative opinion, a huge part of the last days deception will be a fake "resurrection" where these entities will manifest in our physical reality. 

Do you remember the movie Avatar? Do you realize that the message of that movie is transhumanist? Think about it. The main character, Jake Sulley, played by Sam Worthington, is portrayed with a broken body; paralyzed from the waist down. Through advanced technology his consciousness is able to transfer to another body; a bigger, stronger, taller, more athletic, and much more evolutionarily advanced body. Do you see the message? Human bodies made in the image of God are defective, and we need technology to advance up the evolutionary food chain. Do you know where the word avatar actually came from? It literally means to come over, pass through, or overcome. In Eastern mysticism it was associated with the Hundi god Vishnu, who would "descend" to earth and incarnate into a tangible form, in fact he had 10 physical forms, or avatars, that he would assume. Notice also that the movie portrays Pandora, the planet where the Na'vi (the blue people) live, as alive. In fact, they worship Pandora as a female deity, similar to the Gaia movement today. And it was through the power of Pandora that Jake was able to permanently change his consciousness over to his Na'vi body. Do you see the pagan message? Mother earth, the female deity, can help mankind evolve into a higher being through what? Transhumanism

You will see this resurrection theme repeat over and over in movies and television. How about the 1999 movie The Mummy staring Brendan Fraser? This one is obvious and self-explanatory. An ancient Egyptian deity is working through live humans using spells and incantations to attempt to resurrect himself to do what? Reign as Pharaoh in the flesh on earth again. Now, what does all this have to do with the beast in the Book of Revelations? Read the next few verses very carefully. Notice the theme. An image of the beast, an avatar, is animated to life right in front of the entire world. Everyone marvels after the beast. They see the avatar magically come to life, and then he starts killing people who won't worship him. Here is what John said:

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

And deceiveth them that dwell on the earthy by means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (Revelations 13:11-15, Emphasis added) 

Do you catch that? They will make an image of the beast and it will come to life. How will this image be made? Perhaps through technology that will be revealed to elites by Satan and his minions; DNA and cloning technology to create a chimera body for the beast to inhabit, to simulate a resurrection. This will be an attempt to copycat the true God, Jesus Christ, who attained unto the resurrection by those things that He overcame. This will be the ultimate deception, and sadly, most will fall for it. Before we move on go back to verse 11 and notice one more thing. This other beast, the second beast, who gives life to the image of the beast, will come up out of what? The earth. He will ascend out of the depths of the earth. Here we see again the theme of Satan being locked up in the earth. Is John describing Satan's manifestation from his spiritual dimension to our physical one? Will this be the great theatrical display of Satan's ascension from the bottomless pit? And we know this second beast is Satan himself, who has two horns like a lamb, and speaks as a dragon. Dragon and serpent are synonymous, and the devil is that old serpent, who was cast out of God's presence. And he also has what? Two horns. Recall that the Baphomet, the goat of Mendes, is depicted with devil's horns. These are symbolic of a half-man, half-beast, or a deliberate and precalculated corruption of the image of God. This is why I believe that the mark of the beast is this corruption of God's image. It is Satan's ultimate plan to change your DNA into something other than what God gave to Adam and Eve. 

Grabbing the Bull by the Horns

This is a good place to introduce Alexander Hislop, the 19th century theologian who wrote a book originally entitled, The Two Babylons: Romanism and its Origins

It was first published in 1853 as a pamphlet by the Presbyterian Free Church of Scotland. Hislop relies on the mythos of ancient cultures to build a story about how Catholicism has its roots in Nimrod's ancient Mystery Religion. Catholic apologists and 20the century Biblical scholars have attempted to discredit this book, but don't let that bother you. It is a fascinating read, and although Hislop is a sporadic writer and quick to insert conjecture, I believe he got some things right. Just like reading the Apocrypha or literally any other book, you have to use your own judgement and reliance on the Holy Spirit to ascertain truth. 

I believe there are elements of truth in Hislop's book, and there is a story that you can discover through cultural mythos. As I stated before, sometimes myth is the only way you can discover the truth about Mystery Babylon. They pass down their traditions and rituals orally, and have not left many written records, but just as Mormon said, they are had among all people. To uncover them, you simply have to look. The symbolism and clues left behind are done so in plain sight. The one place Satan can't lie is in his symbolism. If you want to find out what deity an organization serves, all you need to do is look at its symbols. Hislop was right about Catholicism, a five minute internet search will reveal that its symbols are steeped in the occult. In this regard, Hislop was ahead of his time, and should be reason enough for any honest seeker of truth to read his book. 

In the image of the latest edition to his book above, you'll notice Semiramis holding Tammuz with the symbol of the sun cradled in bull horns. Why is the occult obsessed with horns? Have you ever wondered where this symbolism came from? Well, Hislop provides an interesting answer. The bull horns go back to Nimrod, the "mighty hunter." What earned Nimrod's fame as a mighty hunter? He literally was the first leader to "grab the bull by the horns." This was symbolic of his subduing the wild beasts that were rampant in those days, and providing a "safe" place for his subjects to live. They considered him to be their protector, and this is where the first concept of surrendering liberties for security came from. Sound familiar? This is the core philosophy of Satan's plan: give up your agency so you can be "safe." This has been the message of government from time immemorial. In exchange for their "protection," you must give up your individual sovereignty. Nimrod was the first to implement this philosophy on a world wide scale. Here is what Hislop said:
The amazing extent of the worship of this man [Nimrod] indicates something very extraordinary in his character; and there is ample reason to believe, that in his own day he was an object of high popularity. Though by setting up as king, Nimrod invaded the patriarchal system, and abridged the liberties of mankind, yet he was held by many to have conferred benefits upon them, that amply indemnified them for the loss of their liberties, and covered with glory and renown. By the time he appeared, the wild beasts of the forest multiplying more rapidly than the human race, must have committed great depredations on the scattered and struggling populations of the earth, and must have inspired great terror into the minds of men. The danger arising to the lives of men from such a source as this, when population is scanty, is implied in the reason given by God Himself for not driving out the doomed Canaanites before Israel at once, though the measure of their iniquity was full (Exo 23:29,30):

 "I will not drive them out before thee in one year, lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee. By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased."

The exploits of Nimrod, therefore, in hunting down the wild beasts of the field, and ridding the world of monsters, must have gained for him the character of a pre-eminent benefactor of his race. By this means, not less than by the bands he trained, was his power acquired, when he first began to be mighty upon the earth; and in the same way, no doubt, was that power consolidated. Then, over and above, as the first great city-builder after the flood, by gathering in masses, and surrounding them with walls, he did still more to enable them to pass their days in security, free from the alarms to which they had been exposed in their scattered life, when no one could tell but that at any moment he might be called to engage in deadly conflict with prowling wild beasts, in defence of his own life and of those who were dear to him. Within the battlements of a fortified city no such danger from savage animals was to be dreaded; and for the security afforded in this way, men no doubt looked upon themselves as greatly indebted to Nimrod. No wonder, therefore, that the name of "mighty hunter," who was at the same time the prototype of "the god of fortifications," should have become a name of renown. Had Nimrod gained renown only thus, it should have been well. But not content with delivering men from the fear of wild beasts, he set to work also to emancipate them from that fear of the Lord which is the beginning of wisdom, and in which alone true happiness can be found. For this very thing, he seems to have gained, as one of his titles by which men delighted to honour him, the title of "Emancipator," or "Deliverer." (The Two Babylons, pp. 38-39)

According to Hislop, horns are also associated with Chronos or Kronos, "father time," which is where we get the word chronology. Kronos is another name for Saturn, the "Dark Lord," or "Lord of the Rings" (yes J.R.R. Tolkien was well aware of occult practices). In the following quote, notice how Hislop pieces together the story of the gods, the tower of Babel, Nimrod, and horn symbolism all into one myth. It becomes quite fascinating when you realize where all this stuff comes from, and how it all is tied together:

It is well known that Kronos, or Saturn, was Rhea's husband; but it is not so well known who was Kronos himself. Traced back to his original, that divinity is proved to have been the first king of Babylon. Theophilus of Antioch shows that Kronos in the east was worshipped under the names Bel and Bal; and from Eusebius we learn that the first of the Assyrian kings, whose name was Belus, was also by the Assyrians called Kronos... But, further, we find that Kronos was king of the Cyclops, who were his brethren, and who derived that name from him, and that the Cyclops were known as "the inventors of tower-building."...

The king of the Cyclops... occupied a position exactly correspondent to that of Rhea who "first erected (towers) in cities." If, therefore, Rhea, the wife of Kronos, was the goddess of fortifications, Kronos or Saturn, the husband of Rhea, that is, Ninus or Nimrod, the first king of Babylon, must have been Ala mahozin, "the god of fortifications."

The name Kronos itself goes not a little to confirm the argument. Kronos signifies, "The Horned one." As a horn is a well known Oriental emblem for power or might, Kronos, "The Horned one," was, according to the mystic system, just a synonym for the Scriptural epithet applied to Nimrod..., "The mighty one" (Gen 10:8), "He began to be mighty on the earth." The name Kronos, as the classical reader is well aware, is applied to Saturn as the "Father of the gods." We have already had another "father of the gods" brought under our notice, even Cush in his character of Bel the Confounder, or Hephaistos, "The Scatterer abroad"; and it is easy to understand how, when the deification of mortals began, and the "mighty" Son of Cush was deified, the father, especially considering the part which he seems to have had in concocting the whole idolatrous system, would have to be deified too, and of course, in his character as the Father of the "Mighty one," and of all the "immortals" that succeeded him. But, in point of fact, we shall find, in the course of our inquiry, that Nimrod was the actual Father of the gods, as being the first of deified mortals; and that, therefore, it is in exact accordance with historical fact that Kronos, the Horned, or Mighty One, is, in the classic Pantheon, known by that title.

The meaning of this name Kronos, "The Horned one," as applied to Nimrod, fully explains the origin of the remarkable symbol, so frequently occurring among the Nineveh sculptures, the gigantic HORNED man-bull, as representing the great divinities in Assyria. The same word that signified a bull, signified also a ruler or prince. The name for bull or ruler, is in Hebrew without points, Shur, which in Chaldee becomes Tur. From Tur, in the sense of a bull, comes the Latin Taurus; and from the same word, in the sense of a ruler, Turannus, which originally had no evil meaning. Thus, in these well known classical words, we have evidence of the operation of the very principle which causes the deified Assyrian kings to be represented under the form of the man-bull. 

Hence the "Horned bull" signified "The Mighty Prince," thereby pointing back to the first of those "Mighty ones," who, under the of Gubres, Gabrs, or Cabiri, occupied so conspicuous a place in the ancient world, and to whom the deified Assyrian monarchs covertly traced back the origin of their greatness and might. This explains the reason why Bacchus of the Greeks was represented as wearing horns, and why he was frequently addressed by the epithet "Bull-horned," as one of the high titles of his dignity...

This, also, in a remarkable way accounts for the origin of one of the divinities worshipped by our Pagan Anglo-Saxon ancestors under the name of Zernebogus. This Zernebogus was "the black, malevolent, ill-omened divinity," in other words, the exact counterpart of the popular idea of the Devil, as supposed to be black, and equipped with horns and hoofs. (The Two Babylons, pp. 31-32, Emphasis original) 

Did you see how Hislop came full circle, from Nimrod to Satan himself, ending with a description of the Baphomet? This is all part of the church of the Devil, doctrines of devils so to speak. Now does it make sense why the Israelites were worshipping a golden calf? A representation of the offspring of the bull, or Tammuz as the offspring of Nimrod. This man-bull iconography has been imminent in many cultures throughout antiquity. It is still prevalent in our culture today. Consider these images from the very popular children's movies Kung Fu Panda and Zootopia:


 

 

In Kung Fu Panda 3, the man-bull, named Kai, was defeated by Master Oogway and banished to spirit realm for 500 years. He is determined to have his revenge and begins stealing the chi of other masters until he becomes powerful enough to "resurrect" himself back into the physical realm, where he plans to rematch Oogway. Can you see the same story resurfacing? The banished entity is waiting for the day to be "resurrected" back into the mortal realm, to take power and control? To have his revenge? This is the story of the Anti-Christ, the demonic entity that will breath life into the image of the beast. Satan can't create anything original; all he can do is mimic what God has done. Christ alone has earned power over death and resurrection. The word life in the Bible is translated from the Hebrew word neshamah, which means "the breath of life." What John is telling us in Revelations 13:15, is that Satan will be given the power to breathe life into the image of the beast, an imitation of what God did to Adam in the Garden of Eden. Remember the words of the late D. Christian Markham: God creates, Satan imitates. 

Nimrod and Abram

There is not a whole lot of literature on Nimrod the mortal man. Yes he was a real person as the Bible and Book of Mormon corroborate, and Josephus, the famous Jewish historian has written some about him, but other than that we are left with the Apocrypha, specifically the Book of Jasher. The name Jasher is not the name of a person, it simply means just. It contains quite an interesting story about Nimrod, Terah, Abraham, and the tower of Babel. There are too many pertinent versus to quote so I will have to paraphrase some of it. 

Cush, the son of Ham, took a wife in his old age and begat Nimrod, who must have been his favorite son because he gave him the garments of Adam and Eve. These garments were given to Enoch, who gave them to Methuselah after he was translated, and Methuselah passed them down to Noah, who took them on the arc. Ham stole the garments and hid them from his brothers and sons, and gave them to Cush, who hid them from his brothers and sons, and gave them to Nimrod. And according to the Book of Jasher, it was these garments that made Nimrod strong:
And Nimrod became strong when he put on the garments, and God gave him might and strength, and he was a mighty hunter in the earth, yea, he was a mighty hunter in the field, and he hunted the animals and he bult altars, and he offered upon them the animals before the Lord. (7:30)

In addition to being a mighty hunter, Nimrod became a mighty warrior in battle. The text says that he "fought the battles of his brethren against all their enemies round about" (7:31). His fame spread throughout all the land, and other men who trained for battle would look to Nimrod as a role model and leader. When he was forty years old there was a war between his people and the children of Japeth, and Nimrod organized, trained, and hired soldiers to fight. His people won the war, and he essentially became the first military dictator. He introduced the idea of mercenaries, military training and hierarchy, involuntary servitude, the appointment of nobles, big government and cronyism. Here is what the text says:

And all the men that went were about five hundred, and they fought against their enemies, and they destroyed them, and subdued them, and Nimrod placed standing officers over them in their respective places. 

And he took some of their children as security, and they were all servants to Nimrod and to his brethren, and Nimrod and all the people that were with him turned homeward.

And when Nimrod had joyfully returned from the battle, after having conquered his enemies, all of his brethren, together with those who knew him before, assembled to make him king over them, and they placed the regal crown upon his head. 

And he set over his subjects and people, princes, judges, and rulers, as is the custom amongst kings. 

And he placed Terah the son of Nahor the prince of his host, and he dignified him and elevated him above all his princes. (7:37-41) 

As far as we know he was the first king after the flood, and established all the customs of kings, like appointing his buddies as leaders and giving them loot (taxes) to live on, AKA cronyism. Interestingly, his right-hand man was Terah, the father of Abraham. So not only was Terah into idol worship, but was an extremely powerful man in Nimrod's kingdom, which makes Abraham's situation so much worse then we can imagine. 

Nimrod and his counselors decided to build a city to establish his palace, and they called it Shinar, and from this city he ruled the entire world, or the known world at that time. The text says he reigned over all the sons of Noah:

And all nations and tongues heard his fame, and they gathered themselves to him, and they bowed down to the earth, and they brought him offerings, and he became their lord and king, and they all dwelt with him in the city at Shinar, and Nimrod reigned in the earth over all the sons of Noah, and they were all brought under his power and counsel. 

And all the earth was of one tongue and words of union, but Nimrod did not go in the ways of the Lord, and he was more wicked than all the men that were before him, from the days of the flood until those days.

And he made gods of wood and stone, and he bowed down to them, and he rebelled against the Lord, and taught all his subjects and the people of the earth his wicked ways... (7:45-47) 

These are interesting verses. Here he have the introduction of idol worship, not only of gods of wood and stone, but of Nimrod himself. His subjects came and bowed before him, signifying the introduction of the divine right of kings. This led to a separation of royalty and peasantry, the dividing of the world into classes, the profane on one hand, and the enlightened on the other. Nimrod also established the idea of royal bloodlines, for the text reveals that his son, Mardon, inherited the kingdom and continued in Nimrod's wicked ways. In fact, Mardon was even more wicked than this father, which seems to follow the pattern of the bloodlines of the Illuminati today. They get worse and worse with each generation, killing and enslaving more people as advancements in technology permit. 

Now I want to return to Nimrod's two titles in verse 45, lord and king. These titles became the appellations for two very famous false gods mentioned in the Old Testament, Baal and Molech. Baal literally means owner, master, and lord, and Molech is a variation of melek, which means to council and advise, or to be a king. Could it be that these two false deities originated in the worship of Nimrod?

We know, for instance, that the Israelites often forsook Jehovah and served other gods, who the Bible says were Baal, Molech, and Ashtaroth. Remember that Ashtaroth is another name for Ishtar, the Babylonian name for Semiramis. Ashtaroth is where the word, star, comes from. And stars are always portrayed with five or six points, the pentagram and the hexagram, two Satanic symbols. Both Baal and Molech required child sacrifice for their appeasement, which also seems to originate with Nimrod. The Old Testament describes the Israelites passing their children through the fire unto Molech, which was a literal statue made of gold where a child would be placed in the hands and slowly burned to death. Here is an image of it, notice that Molech is depicted as a man-bull.


Interestingly enough, it was Abram who was supposed to be the first child sacrifice, but Terah pulled a fast one on Nimrod. It began when Nimrod's team of diviners, practitioners of sorcery and witchcraft, noticed a new star coming from the east, which "swallowed up the four stars from the four sides of the heavens." They determined from this sign that Abram would one day possess all the earth and destroy all its kings:
And all the wise men of the king and his conjurors were astonished at the sight, and the sages understood this matter, and they its import. 

And they said to each other, This only betokens the child that has been born to Terah this night, who will grow up and be fruitful, and multiply, and possess all the earth, he and his children for ever, and he and his seed will slay great kings, and inherit their lands. (8:3-4)


Nimrod demanded that Terah bring the child to him, but he did not want to have the son killed, and it says "the Lord was with Terah in this matter" (8:34). So he brought Nimrod a different child from one of his servants, who violently "dashed his head to the ground." This gives you a feel for what a wicked and violent man Nimrod was, for who could do such a thing to an innocent child? Terah then hid Abram and his mother in a cave, where he lived for ten years. After his upbringing in the cave, Abram went to live with Shem and Noah, where he spent thirty-nine years learning in the instruction of the Lord. When he returned to Shinar, he found that his father Terah was building gods of wood and stone and distributing them for Nimrod. There were twelve gods who represented the 12 months of the year and probably the constellations of the Zodiac, and while Terah was away Abram took a hatchet and destroyed eleven of them, and before leaving placed the hatchet in the hands of the chief god. When Terah discovered what happened Abram told him that the one god had destroyed the rest of them.

Terah immediately knew that Abram was lying, because he himself made the gods and knew they were just idols, which is exactly what Abram was trying to get him to admit. He asked his father why he would put his trust in gods that had "no power to do anything"? This angered Terah and he turned his son over to Nimrod, who remembered what had happened all those years ago and ordered Terah to pay for hiding the child from him. Terah blamed his other son Haran, who he claimed counseled him to switch the infants. Haran was secretly interested in following the ways of Abram, but reasoned within himself that if the king decided to kill Abram, he would support the king. Haran was more interested in saving his own life than in doing what was right. Well, Terah sold Haran out to the king, and he and Abram were cast into a furnace of fire, and although Haran was consumed, Abram was preserved just like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were when king Nebuchadnezzar did likewise to them. 

The fire was so hot that eight of king Nimrod's servants died when they attempted to throw Haran and Abram into the furnace. Abram walked around for three days in the furnace, and not even his clothes were consumed. This miracle so impressed king Nimrod that he gave Abram gifts and his servants bowed to him. But Abram was not safe in the kingdom, because Nimrod had a dream that his troops were destroyed and a bird plucked his eyes out over an egg that represented his kingdom. The "magicians" interpreted the dream as a fulfilment of the prophecy that Abram would one day destroy Nimrod's kingdom, and once again he was ordered to be put to death. Abram then fled to Noah's house and was hidden for a month, where he made preparations to depart to Canaan, which is where the story picks up in the Old Testament. 

The Tower of Babel: The Gate of the Gods

The word Babel is the combination of two words, bab, meaning gate, and el, meaning the gods. We are told in the Old Testament that they built the tower of babel as an attempt to get to heaven, but we are not told why. The Book of Jasher fills in a few gaps here, and the reason for its construction was actually to reach to the heavens to have a war with the real God, which seems insane. Nimrod was already king over the entire world, but his princes counseled that this tower would give them an advantage point over their enemies, which implies that there were pockets of resistance to Nimrod's dictatorship:
And king Nimrod reigned securely, and all the earth was under his control, and all the earth was of one tongue and words of union.

And all the princes of Nimrod and his great men took counsel together: Phut, Mitzraim, Cush, and Canaan with their families, and they said to each other Come, let us build ourselves a city and in it a strong tower, and its top reaching heaven, and we will make ourselves famed, so that we may reign upon the whole world, in order that the evil of our enemies may cease from us, that we may reign mightily over them, and that we may not become scattered over the earth on account of their wars. (9:20-21)

And now the real reason for building the tower and its unfathomable size:

And the building of the tower was unto the a transgression and a sin, and they began to build it, and whilst they were building against the Lord God of heaven, they imagined in their hearts to war against him and to ascend into heaven. 

All all these people and all the families divided themselves in three parts; the first said, We will ascend into heaven and fight against him; the second said, We will ascend to heaven and place our own gods there and serve them; and the third part said, We will ascend to heaven and smite him with bows and spears; and God knew all their works and all their evil thoughts, and he saw the city and the tower which they were building.

And when they were building they built themselves a great city and a very high and strong tower; and on account of its height the mortar and bricks did not reach the builders in their ascent to it, until those who went up had completed a full year, and after that, they reached to the builders and gave them the mortar and the bricks; thus it was done daily. 

And behold these ascended and others descended the whole day; and if a brick should fall from their hands and get broken, they would all weep over it, and if a man fell and died, none of them would look at him. 

And the Lord knew their thoughts, and it came to pass when they were building they cast their arrows toward the heavens, and all the arrows fell upon them filled with blood, and when they saw them they said to each other, Surely we have slain all those that are in heaven. 

For this was from the Lord in order to cause them to err, and in order to destroy them from off the face of the ground. 

And they built the tower and the city, and they did this thing daily until many days and years were elapsed. (9:25-31) 

If what the Book of Jasher says is true, and we know that parts of the Apocrypha are false according to the Lord, it took an entire year to reach the top of the tower, which makes no sense when you consider oxygen deprivation and extreme cold at high altitudes. I think the point was that it was ridiculously tall, and could have been considered as one of the wonders of the world. In another place the text tells us it took three days to walk around the base of it, and that God destroyed two-thirds of it:

And as to the tower which the sons of men built, the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up one third part thereof, and a fire also descended from heaven and burned another third, and the other third is left unto this day, and it is of that part which was aloft, and its circumference is three days' walk. (9:38)

With the top and bottom of the tower destroyed, the part that was left would've resembled an unfinished pyramid, kind of like the image below.

An unfinished pyramid is a trapezoid, which is a Satanic symbol. I wrote about that in this post addressing the occult origins of the United Nations. The shape of the Meditation Room at UN headquarters in New York is also in the shape of a trapezoid, as well as the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill. The capstone with the all-seeing eye of Horus is hovering above the pyramid, leaving it unfinished. Could these symbols have something to do with the tower of Babel? It seems very plausible. 

One last thing to consider is why in the world Nimrod and his people wanted to do battle with the real God of heaven? What were they so angry about? One possibility is that they were bitter with God for sending a flood to destroy their ancestors. Nimrod would've learned this first hand from his grandfather Ham, a living bridge between the pre and post-flood worlds. If Ham was into the occult he would've taught those things to his sons and grandsons. He would've witnessed the giants, the DNA manipulation of animals and humans, the advanced technology of the antediluvians, and the magic, sorcery, and witchcraft that was rampant on the land. Ham could've longed to have those days back, and could have been angry at God for taking it away. After all, he was the great patriarch of Nimrod and his people.

We are told in both Genesis and the Book of Jubilees that Ham committed a sin involving his father Noah. One night when Noah drank too much wine, Ham went into his tent and saw the nakedness of his father. He went and told his brothers Shem and Japeth, who walked backwards with a cloak to cover Noah back up. When Noah awoke he was so incensed that he cursed Ham's youngest son Canaan, who became the progenitor of the infamous Canaanites. Now ask yourself this question: what father would curse their grandchild over their son seeing them naked? Seems a little bit over the top right? But there is a little more to the story. In other Old Testament scriptures uncovering your father's nakedness meant to to uncover the nakedness of his wife:

The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover; for it is thy father's nakedness. (Leviticus 18:8)

And this verse takes it even a step further:

And that man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness..." (Leviticus 20:11

And now we get to what really happened that night with Ham. He took advantage of Noah's wife, his own mother. Now he could've had a different mother than Shem and Japeth, but either way it was a vile act. I imagine that Noah's wife had also drank a little too much that night and was also passed out, and a vulnerable and easy target for the predatory Ham. And wouldn't it make more sense that the child born to her from that rapine was his youngest son Canaan, who Noah cursed? This article makes a pretty strong case for that scenario. The point is, Ham was not a good guy, and may have been the link between the ante and post-diluvian secret societies. He may have been familiar with oaths that were passed down from Cain and Lamech. When he left Noah and his brothers he and his sons settled close to what became Egypt, which we know was the place where the mysteries of the occult were taught and practiced. 

What's even more interesting are the links that Alexander Hislop makes between Ham, Cush, Nimrod and the pantheon of pagan gods we are all so familiar with. According to the 3rd century Roman historian Justin, Ninus, who built Nineveh, was "strengthened" and "subdued all the peoples of the East" (The Two Babylons, p. 28). The story of Ninus is similar to the story of Nimrod, and Hislop believes they are the same person:

Now, assuming that Ninus is Nimrod,... Ninus is said to have the son of Belus or Bel, and Bel is said to have been the founder of Babylon... If Ninus is Nimrom, who was the historical Bel? He must have been Cush; for "Cush begat Nimrod" (Gen 10:8); and Cush is generally represented as having been a ringleader in the great apostacy. But again, Cush, as the son of Ham, was Her-mes or Mercury; for Hermes is just an Egyptian synonym for the "son of Ham."...

The composition of Her-mes is, first, from "Her," which, in Chaldee, is synonymous with Ham, or Khem, "the burnt one," As "her" also, like Ham, signified "The hot or burning one," this name formed a foundation for covertly identifying Ham with the "Sun," and so deifying the great patriarch, after whose name the land of Egypt was called, in connection with the sun...

This derivation will be found to explain the meaning of the names of the Egyptian kings, Ramesses and Thothmes, the former evidently being "The son of Ra," or the Sun; the latter in like manner, being "The son of Thoth." For the very same reason Her-mes is the "Son of Her, or Ham," the burnt one--that is Cush. (Ibid, pp. 28-29)

The names of the pagan deities were not created from a vacuum, they came from somewhere. It is interesting that Her is also the prefix of Hercules, and is similar to Horus. Hislop equates Hermes, or Cush, as being "the great original prophet of idolatry; for he was recognised by the pagans as the author of their religious rites, and the interpreter of the gods" (Ibid, p. 29). Now we have to ask, why would the gods need an interpreter? Well, according to another historian who lived in Rome in the 1st century, Hyginus Fabuale, before there were cities, mankind only spoke one language:

For many ages men lived under the government of Jove [evidently not the Roman Jupiter, but the Jehovah of the Hebrews], without cities and without laws, and all speaking one language. But after Mercury interpreted the speeches of men (whence an interpreter is called Hermeneutes), the same individual distributed the nations. Then discord began. (Quoted in Ibid, P. 29)

Interesting that the patriarchs lived in small communities with no cities or laws, only living under the "government" of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The first time a "city" is mentioned in scripture is when Cain was shut out of the presence of the Lord and departed to the land of Nod:

And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bare Enoch, and he also begat many sons and daughters. And he builded a city, and he called the name of the city after the name of his son, Enoch. (Moses 5:42

It is also interesting that Nimrod and his princes built a city in the land of Shinar, and all the inhabitants came to dwell with him, as it states in Jasher 7:45. At this point Nimrod had become somewhat of a de facto military dictator, and Shinar was probably more of a military fortification than a civilized city. Could it be that cities were an invention of Satan, to keep people herded up in small areas to more easily keep them under surveillance and control? And also to be hubs of military power and centers of war and destruction? It is much more difficult to organize war on a massive scale if the population is spread out throughout vast rural areas. Also interesting to note is Cain's descendent Tubal-Cain, who the scripture says was "an instructor in every artificer in brass and iron" (Moses 5:46). Could this be where the knowledge of how to make weapons came from? Tubal-Cain is a big deal in Freemasonic lore, being the first blacksmith and forger of metals. According to Albert Mackey, the author of the Lexicon of Freemasonry, Tubal-Cain was equated with the god Vulcan:

Tubal-Cain is the Vulcan of the pagans, and is thought to have been closely connected with ancient Freemasonry. Faber says that "almost all the most remarkable ancient buildings of Greece, Egypt, and Asia Minor, were ascribed to Cabirean or Cyclopean Masons," the descendants of Vulcan, Dhu Balcan, the god Balcan, or Tubal Cain. Oliver says, "In after times Tubal Cain, under the name of Vulcan and his Cyclops, figured as workers in metals and inventors of the mysteries; and hence it is probable that he was the hierophant of a similar institution of his day, copied from the previous system of Set, and applied to the improvement of schemes more adapted to the physical pursuits of the race to which he belonged. (Source)

Another connection to Satan being the "god' who revealed the art of war to mankind, is the Book of Enoch, who credits the Watchers (the Fallen Angels) as the ones who taught this technology to man. Specifically, the Fallen Angel Azazyel:

Moreover Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates... (The Book of Enoch 8:1)

Now we are beginning to see a connection between cities, military training, war, weapons, the descendants of Cain, Freemasonry, Nimrod, and the tower of Babel. Returning to Hislop, there are a few more connections between the tower of Babel, Baal, and Bel. Going back to the question we asked a few paragraphs ago, "why would the gods need an interpreter"? Obviously because their languages were confounded. Hislop asserts the word "Peresh," in Chaldee, means to "interpret," but a variation of the word, Peres, meant to "divide." From this Hislop comes to the following conclusions:

Mercury, then, or Hermes, or Cush, "the son of Ham," was the DIVIDER of the speeches of men." He, it would seem had been the ringleader in the scheme for building the great city and tower of Babel; and, as the well known title of Hermes,--"the interpreter of the gods," would indicate, had encouraged them, in the name of God, to proceed in their presumptuous enterprise, and so had caused the language of men to be divided, and themselves to be scattered abroad on the face of the earth. Now look at the name of Belus or Bel, giving to the father of Ninus, or Nimrod, in connection with this. While the Greek name Belus represented both the Baal and Bel of the Chaldees, these were nevertheless two entirely distinct titles. These titles were both alike and often given to the same god, but they had totally different meanings. Baal, as we have already seen, signified, "The Lord"; but Bel signified, "The Confounder." (The Two Babylons, p. 29) 

In light of this, Hislop points out an interesting scripture in the Old Testament that seems to corroborate his theory:

... Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces. (Jeremiah 50:2)

This scripture is actually a prophecy about the last days, but like Isaiah, Jeremiah is using history and imagery from the past to paint a scenario for the future. The name Merodach means death and slaughter, and was a Babylonian god associated with the planet Mars. Similar to Mars and Merodach, is the name of Nimrod's son Mardon, as mentioned in the Book of Jasher. Is there also a connection here? It definitely seems plausible. Hislop also has something to say about Merodach, which he says means "The great Rebel." Well, the name Nimrod also means "to rebel." Hislop makes further connections between Cush, and Janus, or Chaos, and Hephaistos or Vulcan:

The name of Cush is also Khus, for sh frequently passes in Chaldee into s; and Khus, in pronunciation, legitimately becomes Khawos, or, without the digamma, Khoas...

Hephaistos is the name of the ringleader in the first rebellion, as "The Scatterer abroad," as Bel is the name of the same individual as the "Confounder of Tongues," Here, then, the reader may see the real origin of Vulcan's Hammer, which is just another name for the club of Janus or Chaos, "The god of Confusion"; and to this, as breaking the earth in pieces, there is a covert allusion in Jeremiah 50:23, where Babylon, as identified with its primeval god, is thus apostrophised: "How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken"! Now, as the tower-building was the first act of open rebellion after the flood, and Cush, as Bel, was the ringleader in it, he was, of course, the first to whom the name Merodach, "The great Rebel," must have been given, and, therefore, according to the usual parallelism of the prophetic language, we find both names of the Babylonian god referred to together, when the judgment on Babylon is predicted: "Bel is confounded: Merodach is broken in pieces" (Jer 1:2)

The judgement comes upon the Babylonian god according to what he had done. As Bel, he had "confounded" the whole earth, therefore he is "confounded." As Merodach, by the rebellion he had stirred up, he had "broken" the united world in pieces; therefore he himself is "broken in pieces."(The Two Babylons, pp. 29- 30) 

I realize this is a lot of information I'm throwing at you, but the main point is that all these pagan gods originated from somewhere, they weren't just made up by primitive cultures. And all these Biblical histories of events like the flood, and the tower of Babel, and the histories and lineages of Nimrod, and Cain are imprinted on the modern symbolism of the Mystery religions and the organizations they control. There is an entire story told in this symbolism, and the generation of vipers, those who are part of the royal bloodlines of the Illuminati, are still angry at the real God, Jesus Christ, for sending a flood and destroying their ancient and highly advanced civilizations, as well as destroying their pathetic attempt at revenge, the tower of Babel. Christ is the one in charge, not these gods of wood and stone. He leads his people out of bondage, confusion, and apostacy when they call on Him. This is the entire point of the story of the Jaredites in the Book of Mormon. The Brother of Jared asked the Lord not to confound their language and to lead them away into a land where they could be free to practice their religion. 

A final thought. The word confound is an interesting one. Like many other words in our language, there is more to its meaning than we realize. And one of the best talks I have heard this year was on this very subject. It was given by McKay Platt at the Kentucky Restoration entitled, Hear and Trust the Lord in the Storm, in March of 2022. Click here for the link to McKay's talk. It will blow your mind. 

Stay tuned for Part III of this Viper series, coming soon... although I will say it is my busy season at work and it may take longer than usual... but it's coming.

A Generation of Vipers

Previously: Men In White


Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. Just when you think you've got a hold on reality, a new rabbit hole appears and takes you into a Wonderland that you thought was not possible on this plane of existence. As of late I have stumbled into such a rabbit hole, and I want to share it with you. But before I begin a disclaimer is in order: the conclusions drawn herein are solely my own, based upon my own research, opinions, spiritual promptings and impressions. There is no way to prove anything I'm about to tell you. Please do your own praying and your own research and come to your own conclusions. I am not a prophet, I don't receive revelation from God, I have never seen an angel or had any heavenly vision or manifestation. I am just a nerd who likes to read too much and is just learning to follow the promptings of the Spirit. Please accept the possibility that everything that follows could be wrong... and with that caveat out of the way, let's dive in.

The phrase "generation of vipers" appears in the scriptures a total of five times. Four times in the New Testament and once in the Doctrine and Covenants. John the Baptist and Jesus use it in reference to the Pharisees, and Joseph Smith utters the phrase while receiving a revelation in Liberty Jail. In that revelation the Lord uses the phrase to describe those who "swear falsely against" His "servants, that they might bring them into bondage and death," as well as those who "offend" His "little ones," meaning innocent children. To these people the Lord declares that "it had been better for them that a millstone had been hanged about their necks, and they drowned in the depths of the sea" (D&C 121:18-23). God is using the word "viper" to describe extremely evil people. People who hurt children, and have no compunction about delivering His servants up to governments to be killed. A viper does not care who or what its venom is injected into. It uses its poisons to one end: self-preservation. The innocence of the victim of a snake bite matters not to the snake; these are very dangerous animals indeed. In one instance, the Lord prefaces the phrase with "ye serpents," which give us another clue as to who these people are. The serpent has always been a symbol of the great deceiver, Lucifer himself, and to those who follow him it represents his wisdom, but to those who follow Christ it is a symbol of the devil's subtlety to lie, deceive, and strike you when you're least expecting it. The symbol is ancient, and has been used by the Mystery Schools since Cain became Master Mahan. When you find the symbol of the serpent in modern society today, know that it is a trademark of the Church of the devil. That Church is alive and well, even thriving, and is preparing to unleash a torrent of miraculous events that will have the power to deceive even the very elect. Please try to open your mind as you read what follows, because your first instinct will be to not believe a single word of what they're planning to do, and they want to keep it that way. To get an idea of what's going to happen in the future we have to comprehend the past. This requires going back to the beginning, to the first one-world government, where a king named Nimrod ruled with an iron fist. 

Mythos: The Key to the Past    

We live in a world where secular knowledge has been largely suppressed. The powers that be have changed history by controlling and filtering the flow of information. To find truth in any subject requires an extensive and exhaustive search, and complete dependence upon the Holy Spirit to guide you. Much truth can be ascertained through the study of cultural myth, and unfortunately, there are things passed down through the Mystery Schools that can only be found this way. The Lord has revealed the secret oaths, covenants, signs of these organizations in the twenty-four plates of the Jaredites, but has not allowed his prophets to write them down in any scripture that we have. This is because the knowledge of those secret works was too tempting for the Jaredites, and contributed to their destruction. Alma told this to his son Helaman as follows:
And now, I will speak unto you concerning those twenty-four plates, that ye keep them, that the mysteries and the works of darkness, and their secret works, or the secret works of those people who have been destroyed, may be made manifest unto this people; yea, all their murders, and robbings, and their plunderings, and all their wickedness and abominations, may be made manifest unto this people; yea, and that ye preserve these interpreters.

For behold, the Lord saw that this people began to work in darkness, yea, work secret murders and abominations; therefore the Lord said, if they did not repent they should be destroyed from off the face of the earth. 

And the Lord said: I will prepare unto my servant Gazelem, a stone, which shall shine forth in darkness unto light, that I may discover unto my people who serve me, that I may discover unto them the works of their brethren, yea, their secret works, their works of darkness, and their wickedness and abominations. 

And now, my son, these interpreters were prepared that the word of God might be fulfilled, which he spake, saying:

I will bring forth out of darkness unto light all their secret works and their abominations; and except they repent I will destroy them from off the face of the earth; and I will bring to light all their secrets and abominations, unto every nation that shall hereafter possess the land. (Alma 37:21-25)

As you can see, the Lord desires that we know these secret works, but we have to be prepared to receive them. He specifically mentions those that will inherit the promised land. He wants us to know these things, but apparently His hands are tied, because of what happened to the Jaredites:

And now, my son, we see that they did not repent; therefore they have been destroyed, and thus far the word of God has been fulfilled; yea, their secret abominations have been brought out of darkness and make known unto us.

And now, my son, I command you that ye retain all their oaths, and their covenants, and their agreements in their secret abominations; yea, and all their signs and their wonders ye shall keep from this people, that they know them not, lest peradventure they should fall into darkness and also be destroyed. 

For behold, there is a curse upon all this land, that destruction shall come upon all those workers of darkness, according to the power of God, when they are fully ripe; therefore I desire that this people might not be destroyed. 

Therefore ye shall keep these secret plans of their oaths and their covenants from this people, and only their wickedness and their murders and their abominations shall ye make known unto them; and ye shall teach them to abhor such wickedness and abominations and murders; and ye shall also teach them that these people were destroyed on account of their wickedness and abominations and their murders. (Alma 37:26-29)

The Lord, in His mercy, has withheld the details of the oaths and covenants of Mystery Babylon. This is to protect us from becoming intrigued and joining these organizations. But the Lord never said that we were forbidden from searching these things out for ourselves. He has left us a clue as to where to find these oaths and covenants for those interested. After all, God wants us to be informed and to know the truth, for how can be face an enemy we know nothing about? Moroni offered this clue when commenting on secret combinations in the book of Ether:

And now I, Moroni, do not write the manner of their oaths and combinations, for it hath been made known unto me that they are had among all people... (Ether 8:20, Emphasis added)  

What is the common thread that has connected all people throughout the history of the earth? It is myth, passed down through both writings and oral traditions. These are the clues, the trail of bread crumbs so to speak, that the Lord has left for those who desire to know the enemy they are facing. The secular and academic world considers this path to discovering truth foolish, but the Lord has always said that the "wise" and the "prudent" in their own sight are not interested in truth, but in vanity and self-aggrandizement. They don't consider that studying the myths of ancient civilizations can uncover hidden knowledge, so they stick to archeological findings and trust credentialed historians who write peer-reviewed articles. But such history can be easily controlled and manipulated by the powers that be; this is one reason why the earth is groaning under gross darkness. God always reveals things in a way that confound the arrogant, and He does it through simple means. Many who study these things have come to believe that there is some unwritten law or code of ethics that Satan has to adhere to before he unleashes some evil scheme on the world. I think he has to publicly declare, in some form or another, what his diabolical plans are. This has been done through myth, tradition, and popular culture, including music, movies and television series in our modern era. If you look hard enough, you can find the secret plans that pervade almost every aspect of our society. They are hidden in plain sight. 

The Brotherhood of the Snake

Now let's get back to vipers. Who are these people? They are the Mystery School initiates. The serpent is a symbol of their religion. It represents wisdom and occult, or "hidden" knowledge. They believe that is what separates them from us, the profane. The serpent is a cunning, crafty, patient, and lethal hunter. It can remain hidden for hours or days when pursuing a kill. The victim is struck with venom so quickly that it has no idea where the attack came from. Then the snake patiently waits for the victim to die before consuming it. It can go between meals sometimes for months. Everything about its anatomy and way of life is slow, pre-meditated, and calculated with precise accuracy. It sheds its skin often through regeneration, and uses its tongue to smell microparticles in the air. This sense from the tongue communicates to the snake's brain whether predator or prey is close by, and is used to track the movements of these other animals with precision. What the snake lacks in eyesight is made up for by the forked tongue and the extra senses it is capable of. 

These people, the Mystery School initiates, worship the serpent as a representation of Lucifer; anciently they were called the Brotherhood of the Snake. They were a secret society, a fraternity, with secret signs, tokens, handshakes, oaths and covenants. Bill Cooper, in his book Behold a Pale Horse, explains the core beliefs of this brotherhood:
The oldest is the Brotherhood of the Snake, also called the Brotherhood of the Dragon, and it still exists under many different names. The Brotherhood of the Snake is devoted to guarding the "secrets of the ages" and to the recognition of Lucifer as the one and only true God. (p. 83)

Cooper explains that this brotherhood was also known as "the Mysteries," and that "the snake and dragon are symbols that represent wisdom" (p.86) This view is also substantiated by Manly P. Hall, who goes into much more detail on the ancient veneration of the serpent:

The serpent is true to the principle of wisdom, for it tempts man to the knowledge of himself. Therefore the knowledge of self resulted from man's disobedience to the Demiurgus, Jehovah. How the serpent came to be in the garden of the Lord after God had declared that all creatures which He had made during the six days of creation were good has not been satisfactorily answered by the interpreters of Scripture. 

The tree that grows in the midst of the garden is the spinal fire; the knowledge of the use of that spinal fire is the gift of the great serpent. Notwithstanding statements to the contrary, the serpent is the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds by giving creation to the knowledge of itself and the realization of good and evil. If this be not so, why did Moses raise a brazen serpent upon a cross in the wilderness that all who looked upon it might be saved from the sting of lesser snakes?

Was not the brazen serpent a prophecy of the crucified Man to come? If the serpent be only a thing of evil, why did Christ instruct His disciples to be as wise as serpents?

The accepted theory that the serpent is evil cannot be substantiated. It has long been viewed as the emblem of immortality. It is the symbol of reincarnation, or metempsychosis, because it annually sheds its skin, reappearing, as it were, in a new body. There is an ancient superstition to the effect that snakes never die except by violence and that, if injured, they would live forever. It was also believed that snakes swallowed themselves, and this resulted in their being considered emblematic of the Supreme Creator, who periodically reabsorbed His universe back into Himself...

The seven-headed snake represents the Supreme Deity manifesting through His Elohim, or Seven Spirits, by whose aid He established His universe. The coils of the snake have been used by the pagans to symbolize the motion and also the orbits of the celestial bodies, and it is probable that the symbol of the serpent twisted around the egg -- which was common to many of the ancient Mystery schools -- represented both the apparent motion of the sun around the earth, and the bands of astral light, or the great magical agent, which move about the planet incessantly...

Being symbolic of universal force, the serpent was emblematic of both good and evil... The serpent with its tail in its mouth is the symbol of eternity, for in this position the body of the reptile has neither beginning nor end. The head and tail represent the positive and negative poles of the cosmic life circuit. The initiates of the Mysteries were often referred to as serpents, and their wisdom was considered analogous to the divinely inspired power of the snake. (The Secret Teachings Of All Ages, pp. 212-214) 

Notice how Hall declares the serpent to be the prototype of the "Universal Savior"? According to Hall, the serpent "saves" us by "giving creation to the knowledge of itself." Or, in other words, the serpent makes us self-aware by imparting its wisdom and knowledge of opposites, i.e., good and evil. This is nothing but the same old bait and switch, giving Lucifer the credit for the creation of the world and bestowing the gift of intellect to man. Remember, these people believe that Lucifer is a benevolent god, the "Great Architect" of the universe, and it doesn't matter what you believe, because what they believe affects you. Later in this blog series (this one will require multiple parts) you'll learn just how pervasive those effects are. For now, just realize that the Brotherhood of the Snake has infiltrated every organized religion, and is secretly espousing its serpentine doctrine in the top echelons of religious hierarchies. Also realize that most secret societies are break-offs or satellites of this brotherhood, and have had these "secret works" passed down to them over time. The serpent philosophy dominated the Babylonian, Sumerian, Chaldean, Persian, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman Mysteries, as well as medieval groups like the Knight's Templars, the Rosicrucians, the Jesuits, the Knights of the Roundtable, and modern groups like the Skull and Bones, the Knights of Malta, the Bohemians, the Committee of 300, and their modern Anglo-American front groups like the Bilderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and all the way up to the United Nations. These people control the world. To understand what they are planning, you have to know the ancient history of Babylon, where it all began. 

King Nimrod and the "Watchers"

Nimrod is a Biblical character that is rarely talked about. The name itself has become somewhat of a pejorative in our modern lexicon, akin to moron or idiot. However, the truth about this insidious man has been deliberately suppressed by the Mystery schools. The secret knowledge about who Nimrod really was is a major part of the religion of Lucifer. Nimrod was the link between the antediluvian and postdiluvian secret societies. He instituted the first totalitarian dictatorship, i.e., the first kingdom. He is only mentioned briefly in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and was known as a great hunter. Here is what the Bible says:
And Cush [son of Ham] begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord. (Genesis 10:8-9)

The phrase before the Lord doesn't mean what you think it does at first glance. In Hebrew, other translations of before include "against, opposite, and contrary to." Consider also that the commandment not to "have other gods before me," is used in a similar vein. The Bible is telling us that Nimrod's a bad guy. In the Book of Mormon Nimrod is mentioned as the name of a valley that the brother of Jared was led into to prepare a vessel to sail to the promised-land. It says that the valley was named after the "mighty hunter," corroborating the Biblical account. 

What does it mean to be a "mighty one in the earth"? This is where it gets interesting. The Bible also offers this background information on Nimrod:

And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, and Resen between Calah and Nineveh: the same is a great city. (Genesis 10:11-13)

Shinar is roughly translated as "country of two rivers." This would put Shinar in the heart of ancient Mesopotamia, where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers are, or somewhere close to modern Iraq. After the tower of Babel was destroyed the capital city was moved to Nineveh, the "great city," and was apparently built by Asshur, who is named as a son of Shem in Genesis 10:22. The name Assyria is derived from Asshur, and is named by Isaiah as the country that the last-days dictator, the king of Assyria, will hail from. The cities mentioned in the scripture above made up the known world at that time, and Nimrod ruled over all of it, with an iron first. 

All the other historical data we have on Nimrod comes from Apocryphal works like the books of Jasher and Jubilees, and myths and legends that have been passed down throughout different cultures. From this we can piece together how Nimrod fits into the Mystery Religion. But before we dive in, a word of caution is in order. The Apocrypha consists of many books that were lost or removed from the Bible, and according to the Lord, there is a mixture of truth and error in them, and the only way to know the difference is through the Spirit. Here is what He said:

Verily, thus sayeth the Lord unto you concerning the Apocrypha--There are many things contained therein that are true, and it is mostly translated correctly; there are many things contained therein that are not true, which are interpolations by the hands of men. Verily, I say unto you, that it is not needful that the Apocrypha should be translated.  Therefore, whoso readeth it, let him understand, for the Spirit manifesteth truth; and whoso is enlightened by the Spirit shall obtain benefit therefrom; and whoso receiveth not the Spirit, cannot be benefited. Therefore it is not needful that it should be translated. Amen. (D&C Section 91)

I think it's interesting that the Lord said that the Apocrypha is mostly translated correctly, which means that we can benefit a lot from reading it. Yet at the same time the only way to know the truth is by the power of the Holy Ghost. Keep this in mind as we dive further down this rabbit hole; it's a deep one, and it's going to take multiple posts to cover everything. 

Let's get back to Nimrod and what it means to be mighty. There is a link between giants, mighty men, and men of renown in the scriptures. This link is described in both the Genesis account and the re-translated book of Moses, only with subtle changes. The book of Moses tells the story this way:

And Noah and his sons hearkened unto the Lord, and gave heed, and they were called the sons of God. And when these men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, the sons of men saw that those daughters were fair, and they took them wives, even as they chose

And the Lord said unto Noah: The daughters of thy sons have sold themselves; for behold mine anger is kindled against the sons of men, for they will not hearken to my voice. And it came to pass that Noah prophesied, and taught the things of God, even as it was in the beginning. 

And the Lord said unto Noah: My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for he shall know that all flesh shall die; yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years; and if men do not repent, I will send in the floods upon them. And in those days there were giants on the earth, and they sought Noah to take away his life; but the Lord was with Noah, and the power of the Lord was upon him. 

And the Lord ordained Noah after his own order, and commanded him that he should go forth and declare his Gospel unto the children of men, even as it was given unto Enoch. And it came to pass that Noah called upon the children of men that they should repent; but they hearkened not unto his words;

And also, after that they had heard him, they came up before him, saying: Behold, we are the sons of God; have we not taken unto ourselves the daughters of men? And are we not eating and drinking, and marrying and giving in marriage? And our wives bear unto us children, and the same are mighty men, which are like unto men of old, men of great renown. And they hearkened not unto the words of Noah...

And the Lord said: I will destroy man whom I have created, from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and the creeping things, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth Noah that I have created them, and that I have made them; and he hath called upon me; for they have sought his life... 

The earth was corrupt before God, and it was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth. (Moses 8:13-21, 26, 28-29, Emphases added)

In the Genesis account the term sons of God is substituted for sons of men quoted in Moses 8:14 above. This mistranslation has given birth to a plethora of confusion. There is an account in the book of Enoch that the sons of God described in Genesis were actually "fallen angels" who came down to the earth and copulated with mortal women. The offspring of which became the giants, which in Hebrew is translated as the Nephilim. According to the book of Enoch, these fallen angels, also known as the "Watchers," taught man sorcery, incantations, witchcraft, the dividing of roots and trees (this is more than just herbology, this is how to use herbs like mushrooms that cause hallucinations to have "spiritual" experiences), as well as astrology, astronomy, and alchemy. The book of Enoch goes into great detail about these Watchers, how they conspired in heaven before they came down, and swore oaths to each other, that there were two hundred of them, and even naming their leaders, chief among them was an angel named Samyaza. 

But in the account of Moses it was the sons of men that came in unto the daughters of the sons of God, i.e., Noah and his progeny. Sons of God is a phrase that describes those who have covenanted with Christ and have been spiritually adopted by Him. The sons of men, in my opinion, is an appellation for those who have not entered into such a covenant. I believe the story of the Watchers in the book of Enoch is therefore a myth and an interpolation of men. However, what about the giants? What about the mighty men and the men of renown? How does all this fit into the picture? Notice that the sons of men refer to themselves as the sons of God in Moses 8:21? And they are bragging about the children being born to them becoming these men of renown, the mighty men of old. What in the world are they talking about? And finally, what does the Lord mean that "all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth"? What was going on that was so bad that God was constrained to destroy all flesh from off the face of the earth?

This, my friends, is where it gets interesting. What in the world were the antediluvians up to? In my opinion, they were genetically altering human DNA to create a superior race of people. The word renown means famous and legendary, describing men with superhuman strength and abilities. And the word mighty means "having or showing great skill, strength, or force," and "imposing in size, degree, or extent." If my theory is correct, then the "Watchers" were not really fallen angels with resurrected bodies, who came and slept with human women, but were actually evil spirits, demons who followed Satan, who never received physical bodies. I believe these demons actually did teach men sorcery, witchcraft, astrology, alchemy, and everything else described in the book of Enoch, as well as the science of DNA manipulation and alteration. Why? To get men to create chimera bodies for them to possess. A chimera is "an organism, organ, or part consisting of two or more tissues of different genetic composition, produced as a result of an organ transplant, grafting, or genetic engineering." 

The other accounts of this pre-flood phenomena are recorded in the books of the Jubilees and the book of Jasher. The book of the Jubilees agrees with the fallen angel theory of the book of Enoch:

When the children of men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them, and the angels of God saw them on a certain year of the jubilee, that they were beautiful, and they took themselves wives of all whom they chose, and they gave birth to their sons and they were giants. 

Because of them lawlessness increased on the earth and all flesh corrupted its way. Men and cattle and beasts and birds and everything that walked on the earth were all corrupted in their ways and their orders, and they began to devour each other. Lawlessness increased on the earth and the imagination and thoughts of all men were continually, totally evil. 

God looked upon the earth, and saw that it was corrupt, and all flesh had corrupted its orders, and all that were on the earth had committed all manner of evil before His eyes. (The Book of the Jubilees: The Little Genesis; The Apocalypse of Moses, Chapter 5, verse 1-3) 

The book of Jasher, however, is more inline with my own opinion, that it was men who corrupted the DNA of all flesh on earth, not fallen angels from heaven:

And all the sons of men departed from the ways of the Lord in those days as they multiplied upon the face of the earth with sons and daughters, and they taught one another their evil practices and they continued sinning against the Lord.

And every man made unto himself a god, and they robbed and plundered every man his neighbor as well as his relative, and they corrupted the earth, and the earth was filled with violence. 

And their judges and rulers went to the daughters of men and took their wives by force from their husbands according to their choice, and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field, and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord; and God saw the whole earth and it was corrupt, for flesh had corrupted its ways upon the earth, all men and animals

And the Lord said, I will blot out man that I created from the face of the earth, yea from man to the birds of the air, together with cattle and beasts that are in the field for I repent that I made them.

And all men who walked in the ways of the Lord in those days, before the Lord brought the evil upon man which he had declared, for this was from the Lord, that they should not see the evil which the Lord spoke of concerning the sons of men. 

And Noah found grace in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord chose him and his children to raise up seed from them upon the face of the whole earth.  (The Book of Jasher, Chapter 4, versus 16-21, Emphases added)

As you can see, the sons of men practiced idolatry, socialism (robbing and plundering their neighbors), fornication under the consent of the king (like medieval England), and wait for it... "the mixture of animals of one species with the other," or in other words, genetic modification, or Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) Is this sounding familiar yet? Keep in mind that this genetic alteration and "mixing" was happening with both men and animals. And why is this important for us today? Because of what the Lord declared to his disciples in Jerusalem:

But as it was in the days of Noah, so it shall be also at the coming of the Son of Man. (Joseph Smith--Matthew 1:41)

The Mystery of the Seed of the Serpent 

There is a scripture found in both Genesis and the book of Moses that has always been puzzling to me. After the serpent had tempted Eve into partaking of the forbidden fruit, God told him (Satan) that He would place enmity between his seed and the seed of the woman:
And I, the Lord God, said unto the serpent: Because thou hast done this thou shalt be cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of they life;

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, between thy seed and her seed; he shall bruise they head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (Moses 4:20-21, Emphasis added) 

We have to ask the question here: is God talking about a physical snake or Satan himself? And if Satan, then how can a spiritual entity have seed? When a snake strikes a person it usually bites the lower part of the body, and depending on the kind and severity of venom it has it leaves a bruise as the poison begins to travel through the body, but a man can simply stomp on its head to kill it. Is God trying to tell us something in this parable? Is God really talking about the obvious characteristics of snakes or is he trying to reveal a deeper mystery? I believe it is the latter. The scripture in Moses says "and in those days there were giants on the earth"... where did they come from? Who was their lineage through? Did God actually create them? Were they part of the seed of the woman or did they come from somewhere else? We are not told anything about the history of the giants, except that they were present in the days of Enoch and Noah. Could these have been the chimera bodies created for the demons who followed Satan? Was this something he offered to the third of God's children that followed him in the preexistence? I am not asking you to believe me, I am just asking you to logically think about it. 

Why did so many spirits follow Satan in the war in heaven? What could possibly have been so appealing about never getting a physical body? It doesn't make any sense that any would follow him, unless he promised to provide them bodies of their own. To see just how badly these spirits wanted physical bodies, all one has to do is simply read the New Testament, most of what Jesus' healing consisted of was casting out demons. It only makes sense that the giant bodies were possessed by evil spirits, because all of the Apocryphal works describe them as being bloodthirsty, violent, and having an insatiable appetite. In other words, the spirits who possessed them were so thrilled to have a body that they literally had no control over themselves. Here is how Enoch recounts it:

Then they [the Watchers] took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees. And the women conceiving brought forth giants, whose stature was each three hundred cubits. These devoured all which the labor of men produced; until it became impossible to feed them; when they turned themselves against men, in order to devour them; and began to injure birds, beasts, reptiles, and fishes, to eat their flesh one after another, and to drink their blood. (The Book of Enoch, Chapter 7, verses 10-14)

Now think about this. Remember D. Christian Markham's theme throughout his book Two Churches Only? God creates and Satan imitates. Jesus Christ was the only being in this creation cycle to have been the progeny of a Father in Heaven and an earthly mother. He was the literal Son of God, part God, and part human. Now think of every myth and superhero story that you know. Was is the common thread? They are part god and part human; a mixture of heavenly and earthly seed. A few ancient heroes that come to mind that fit this description are Hercules, Apollo, Dionysus, Prometheus, Krishna, Brahmin, Buddha, Horus, Thor, and on and on and on. The myth of the Watchers follows this same pattern. They were “gods” who came down to earth and mated with women to create a race of god-men, men of renown, mighty men, or superheroes. I believe this interpolation was included in the book of Enoch and Jubilees to perpetuate the Satanic myth that a race of gods have been created on this earth different from Jesus Christ. Christ comes from the seed of the woman, the giants come from the seed of the serpent, but the serpent seed wasn't created from fallen angels, it was the result of genetic manipulation and cloning. But it is real, the giants were real, they survived the flood, and the Old Testament is replete with evidence about their existence. 

When I wrote my book on war in 2014, I was truly puzzled as to why God would command Moses, Joshua, and Caleb to march into surrounding civilizations and kill every living soul, including women and children, and take their possessions and their lands. In contrast, Captain Moroni's volunteer army was fighting only to defend their families, lands, freedom, and religion from the tyranny of Amalickiah and Ammoron. The Old Testament and Book of Mormon seem diametrically opposed when it comes to preemptive and defensive warfare. I chalked this conundrum up to two different possibilities: either these parts of the Bible were mistranslated or there were special circumstances that justified God and the Israelites in their actions. I am now leaning toward the latter. 

Now indulge me for just a moment. What if the Amalekites, Hittites, Jebusites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Horites... were descendants of the giants? What if they were hybrid chimeras (able to reproduce) that survived the flood and were inhabited by evil spirits?  If that were the case then the usual rules of warfare would not apply because the enemy would not be human. God would be justified in destroying these races from off the face of the earth because the spirits that possessed these bodies rejected His plan in the pre-existence. Remember, demons are able to possess both human and animal bodies, so a hybrid chimera of a creature somewhere in between would be a cinch. I know this sounds crazy, but as I said in the beginning of this post, sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. Just pause for a moment and think about all the genres of fiction that have shaped our ideas of what monsters, creatures, and animal/human hybrids look like. There is no shortage of these mythical creatures on movies and television series, we are obsessed with them! Think of the creatures in the Lord of the Rings, the Alien and Predator movies, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Godzilla. Or movies about Bigfoot, zombies, vampires, mummies, yetis, or other supernatural phenomenon. And don't forget the anthropomorphic cartoons that our children love like Kung Fu Panda, Zootopia, Disney's Robinhood, and Madagascar. We love to give animals human characteristics on the big screen, but where did this idea originate from? Remember what the book of Ecclesiastes says:

The thing that hath been, is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9, Emphasis added)

There is nothing new under the sun. Satan is doing that which has been done in other worlds. Remember that God put enmity between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. If my theory about the giants is correct, then the Old Testament testifies of that enmity. Have you ever heard of the Annunaki? They are supposed to be ancient aliens/gods who came from another planet and performed genetic experiments on caveman to create homo sapiens. This is an ancient Sumerian myth as old as Nimrod and his Mesopotamian empire. There are people who believe this today, among them Jordan Maxwell and Zecharia Sitchin, the latter of which is a 33rd degree Freemason. Can you see how this story mimics the "Watchers" from the book of Enoch? Ancient god-men coming down and performing genetic experiments to create a superior race? Well, it just so happens that there was a race of people in the Old Testament called the Anakim. And they were a race of giants. God commanded the Israelites to destroy them but they were terrified of them. The book of Numbers recounts what the spies said that Moses sent to scout the land of the children of Anak:

And they told him, and said, We came unto the land wither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it. Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. 

The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. 

But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature

And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. (Numbers 13:27-33), Emphases added) 

Not only where these giants cannibals, they were enormous. If what Enoch said about the height of the giants was really true (that they were 300 cubits high, or about 450 feet tall), then the children of Israel would really seem like grasshoppers to them. Can you imagine how terrified you would be if you were a soldier in the Israelite army? Notice that the term Annunaki and Anakim seem similar? They have the same root words of ana and aki. What if the myth of the Annunaki was just a corruption of this Biblical account mixed with the Watchers from the book of Enoch? What if all ancient myths were derived from some modicum of truth? How about the Horites, mentioned a few times in the Old Testament? They were most likely cave-dwellers because the term Horite means those who dwell in caves. Well these people are a perfect match for the Morlocks in H.G. Wells 1885 novel, The Time Machine. And the Amorites dwelled in the mountains, and we hear of myths of bigfoots and yetis also dwelling in mountains. In Amos 2:9 they are described as being the height of cedars and as strong as oaks. Also consider that although the etymology of the word Amalekites is unclear, one of the possible meanings is "one who licks blood," lining up with the myths of vampires and other blood sucking creatures. The name Hittites means "terrible" or "fearsome," the name Jebusites means to "trample down," and the name Hivites means "tent-dwellers" or "serpents." Are you beginning to get the picture of what Moses, Joshua, and Caleb were up against? This is something straight out of a horror movie. The only way they would've been able to defeat such enemies is through the power of  God, through the order of the higher priesthood and the sealing power; the power to command the elements. Enoch had this power and it was enough to make the giants stand afar off from Zion. 

Before I close this post we have to examine the name of the Canaanites. The name comes from Canaan the son of Ham, and "it is a transliteration of an Aramaic name meaning 'zealot'." The land of Canaan was the promised land that would later become Israel. Moses and the children of Israel were commanded to take it from the Canaanites, but because of disobedience it took forty years to obtain and they never actually conquered the Canaanites. The word "zealot" is an interesting term, because the ancient Phoenician Canaanites were extremely religious people. They celebrated pagan holy days worshipping the sun, the moon, and the stars. They were a cult that sprang from the Mystery Religion of Nimrod, which is what part 2 of this Viper series is going to cover. Part of their religion involved cannibalism, because the Mystery Religion required human sacrifice to gods like Molech and Baal. And after the victim was killed, the cult members would often drink the blood, because they believed it would give them vitality and immortality. Satanic cults still do this today, and I'm not talking about your local punk/kid devil worshippers. I'm talking about world elites in powerful religions, governments, and Hollywood. The worship of Molech and Baal is alive and well today. In fact, the very word cannibal is derived from the religion of the Canaanites. It is a combination of the words Canaan and Baal. As you can see, someone wants you to know where this wacky stuff came from. It is hidden in plain sight.
