Days of Noah

Days of Noah

Mat 24:37  But as the days of Noah, so also will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Mat 24:38  For as they were in the days before the flood: eating, and drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah went into the ark.
Mat 24:39  And they did not know until the flood came and took all away. So also will be the coming of the Son of Man.

Luk 17:26  And as it was in the days of Noah, so also it will be in the days of the Son of Man.
Luk 17:27  They were eating, drinking, marrying, giving in marriage, until the day Noah went into the ark. And the flood came and destroyed all.
Luk 17:28  And likewise, as it was in the days of Lot, they were eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, building;
Luk 17:29  but on the day Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from the heaven and destroyed all.
Luk 17:30  According to those things, it will be in the day the Son of Man is revealed.

The above Scriptures indicate that the world system is going to continue up until the day Messiah returns and it will all come to an end in the blink of an eye.

The above Scriptures also indicate that the days of Noah, the days of Lot are the main reference points to understanding the times before the return of the Messiah through the Scriptures.  The other main reference to look at is the Egyptian Exodus (Mic 7:15; Jer 16:14; 23:7).  The greater Exodus will be discussed in a future study, Yah willing.

Jude connects the days of Noah and the days of Lot via the fallen angels.

Jud 1:6  And those angels not having kept their first place, but having deserted their dwelling-place, He has kept in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of a great Day;
Jud 1:7  as
(Ara. just as…connecting sins of angels with Sodom an Gomorroah) Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them, in like manner to these, committing fornication, and going away after other flesh, laid down an example before-times, undergoing vengeance of everlasting fire.

  • Working of abominations
  • Not helping poor and needy, idleness, pride, fullness of bread

Population Increase

In the writings of the Sumerians it is said that “the Flood was sent by the ‘gods’ in order to reduce overpopulation, a situation which as been compared with an early Greek poem, the Cypria (loosely attributed to Homer in antiquity and known mainly from allusions and quotations), in which Zeus planned to reduce overpopulation by war.  The Flood is also important for Mesopotamian tradition because it marks the end of the period when true sages lived on earth and brought to mankind the arts of civilization from the gods.” Myths from Mesopotamia pg 5

Gen 6:1  And it came about that men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them.

Corruption of the earth

Rev 11:18  And the nations were full of wrath; and Your wrath came, and the time of the judging of the dead, and to give the reward to Your slaves, to the prophets, and to the saints, and to the ones fearing Your name, to the small and to the great, and to destroy those destroying the earth.
Gen 6:12  And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

The book of Jasher defines this corruption as mixing of genetics
Jasher 4
18 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 all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals.

The biblical definition of corruption is turning away from Torah.

Deu 31:29  For I know that after my death you shall utterly corrupt (shachat shachat) yourselves, and will turn aside from the way which I have commanded you. And evil shall happen to you in the latter end of the days because you shall do evil in the eyes of YHWH, to make Him angry with the work of your hands.

Isa 24:5  And the earth is profaned under those living in it, because they transgress laws and violate a statute, and break the everlasting covenant.
Isa 24:6  On account of this a curse has devoured the land; and they who live in it are held guilty. For this those living in the land are consumed, and few men are left.

Sin {which is defined as lawlessnessclick here ) in Garden brought pain to all creation
Rom 8:20  For the creation was not willingly subjected to vanity, but through Him subjecting it, on hope;
Rom 8:21  that also the creation will be freed from the slavery of corruption to the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
Rom 8:22  For we know that all the creation groans together and travails together until now.

First the spiritual, and then the physical (1 Cor 15:46).  DNA is a physical picture of the Torahclick here .  Turning away from the Torah (the Tree of Life) leads one to lawlessness (tree of knowledge of good and evil)

“The angels of your heavens are now committing sin (upon the earth),
and your wrath shall rest upon the flesh of the people until (the arrival of)
the great day of judgment” (Enoch 84:4).
“Again I saw (a vision) with my own eyes as I was sleeping, and saw the
lofty heaven; and as I looked, a star fell down from heaven [Lucifer, or Satan -- compare Luke 10:18] but (managed) to rise and eat and to be pastured among those cows. Then I saw these big and dark cows, and behold they all changed their cattle-sheds, their pastures, and their calves; and they began to lament with each other. Once again I saw a vision, and I observed the sky and behold, I saw many stars descending and casting themselves down from the sky upon that first star; and they became bovids [cattle, or quadrupeds] among those calves and were pastured together with them, in their midst. I kept observing, and behold, I saw all of them extending their sexual organs like horses and commencing to mount upon the heifers, the bovids; and they (the latter) all became pregnant and bore elephants, camels, and donkeys.
So (the cattle) became fearful and frightened of them . . .” (Enoch 86:1-5).

The two hundred angels choose animals on which to perform unnatural acts, including, presumably, humans.

1Q23 Frag. 1 + 6 [ . . . two hundred] 2donkeys, two hundred asses, two hundred . . . rams of the] 3flock, two hundred goats, two hundred [ . . . beast of the] 4field from every animal, from every [bird . . . ] 5[ . . . ] for miscegenation [ . . . ]

The outcome of the demonic corruption was violence, perversion, and a brood of monstrous beings. Compare Genesis 6:4.

4Q531 Frag. 2 [ . . . ] they defiled [ . . . ] 2[ . . . they begot] giants and monsters [ . . . ] 3[ . . . ] they begot, and, behold, all [the earth was corrupted . . . ] 4[ . . . ] with its blood and by the hand of [ . . . ] 5[giant's] which did not suffice for them and [ . . . ] 6[ . . . ] and they were seeking to devour many [ . . . ] 7[ . . . ] 8[ . . . ] the monsters attacked it.

4Q532 Col. 2 Frags. 1 – 6 2[ . . . ] flesh [ . . . ] 3al[l . . . ] monsters [ . . . ] will be [ . . . ] 4[ . . . ] they would arise [ . . . ] lacking in true knowledge [ . . . ] because [ . . . ] 5[ . . . ] the earth [grew corrupt . . . ] mighty [ . . . ] 6[ . . . ] they were considering [ . . . ] 7[ . . . ] from the angels upon [ . . . ] 8[ . . . ] in the end it will perish and die [ . . . ] 9[ . . . ] they caused great corruption in the [earth . . . ] [ . . . this did not] suffice to [ . . . ] “they will be [ . . . ]

Genesis Rabbah 28:8
Rabbi Azaryah said in Rabbi Y’hudah’s name, ‘All acted corruptly in the generation of the Flood; the dog had intercourse with the wolf, and the fowl with the peacock; hence it is written, for all (flesh) on the earth had corrupted their way (Gen 6:12).’  Rabbi Julian ben Tiberius said in Rabbi Yitzchak’s name, ‘Even the earth debauched itself; wheat was sown and it produced zunim, for the zunim we find now came from the age of the Flood.’

Enoch 9:10 Restore the earth, which the angels have corrupted; and announce life to it, that I may revive it.

Enoch 10:6 Uriel is told to “heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons.  And the whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin.”

Lev 19:19  You shall keep my statutes; you shall not cause your livestock to breed with different kinds; you shall not sow two kinds in your field; and you shall not allow a garment mixed of linen and wool to come upon you.

Deu 22:9  You shall not sow your vineyard with different kinds of seeds, that the fruit of your seed which you have sown and the fruit of your vineyard not be defiled.
Deu 22:10  You shall not plow with an ox and an ass together.
Deu 22:11  You shall not wear a garment of different kinds, of wool and linen together.


Testament of Reuben 5
Therefore flee fornication, my children, and command your wives and your daughters that they adorn not their heads and their faces; because every woman who acteth deceitfully in these things hath been reserved to everlasting punishment. For thus they allured the Watchers before the flood; and as these continually beheld them, they fell into desire each of the other, and they conceived the act in their mind, and changed themselves into the shape of men, and appeared to them in their congress with their husbands; and the women, having in their minds desire toward their apparitions, gave birth to giants, for the Watchers appeared to them as reaching even unto heaven.

Testament of Naphtali 3
Nations went astray, and forsook the Lord, and changed their order, and followed stones and stocks, following after spirits of error. But ye shall not be so, my children, recognising in the firmament, in the earth, and in the sea, and in all created things, the Lord who made them all, that ye become not as Sodom, which changed the order of its nature. in like manner also the Watchers changed the order of their nature, whom also the Lord cursed at the flood, and for their sakes made desolate the earth, that it should be uninhabited and fruitless.

Rampant sexual immorality

John Gill commentary on Genesis 6:12

The Jewish writers also observe (z), that the generations of Cain were guilty of uncleanness, men and women, like beasts, and defiled themselves with all kind of fornication and incest, everyone with his mother, and with his own sister, and with his brother’s wife, and that openly, and in the streets: and Sanchoniatho (a), the Heathen historian, the writer of the history of Cain’s line, says of the fifth generation before the flood, that the women of those times, without shame, lay with any man they could meet with. (z) Pirke Eliezer, c. 22. (a) Apud Euseb. Praepar. Evangel. l. 1. p. 34, 35

So too in the days of Lot there was sexual immorality in abundance.  Even the English word Sodomy comes from Sodom and Gomorrah.

Opening of the Abyss

Gen 7:11  In the sixH8337 hundredthH3967 yearH8141 of Noah’sH5146 life,H2416 in the secondH8145 month,H2320 the seventeenthH7651 H6240 dayH3117 of the month,H2320 the sameH2320 dayH3117 were allH3605 the fountainsH4599 of the greatH7227 deepH8415 broken up,H1234 and the windowsH699 of heavenH8064 were opened.H6605
fountain (eye) great deep (abyss) split open, windows(ambush) of heaven were opened. A deeper meaning of Genesis 7:11 and application which matches Revelation is that the abyss will be opened as well as the heavens resulting in destruction and judgment.
Targum
…in that day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up. And the giants were gathered there together with their sons and perturbed them, and afterwards the windows of heaven were opened.

From below..
Rev 9:2  And he opened the pit of the abyss. And smoke went up out of the pit, like smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, and the air, by the smoke of the pit.

From above…
Rev 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, the old serpent being called devil, and, Satan; he deceiving the whole habitable world was cast out onto the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Violence

Gen 6:5  And YHWH saw that the evil of man was great on the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the day long.
Gen 6:6  And YHWH repented that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved to His heart.
Gen 6:7  And YHWH said, I will wipe off man whom I have created from the face of the earth, from man to beast, to the creeping thing and to the birds of the heavens; for I repent that I made them.
Gen 6:8  And Noah found grace in the eyes of YHWH.
Gen 6:9  These are the generations of Noah. Noah, a righteous man, had been perfected among his family. Noah walked with God.
Gen 6:10  And Noah fathered three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Gen 6:11  And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
G
en 6:12  And God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupted. For all flesh had corrupted its way on the earth.
Rev 6:9  And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those having been slain for the Word of God, and for the witness which they had.
Rev 6:10  And they cried with a great voice, saying, Until when, holy and true Master, do You not judge and take vengeance for our blood, from those dwelling on the earth?
Rev 6:11  And there was given to each one a white robe. And it was said to them that they should rest yet a little time, until might be fulfilled also the number of their fellow-slaves and their brothers, those being about to be killed, even as they.
Enoch 8:4 And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven…
Enoch 9:2 “The earth made without inhabitant cries the voice of their cryings up to the gates of heaven
9:3 And now to you, the holy ones of heaven, the souls of mean make their suit, saying, “Bring our cause before the Most High.”
9:10 And now, behold, the souls of those who have died are crying and making their suit to the gates of heave and their lamentations have ascended: and cannot cease because of the lawless deeds which are wrought on the earth.

Jubilee 7:20…And in the twenty-eighth jubilee [1324-1372 A.M.] Noah began to enjoin upon his sons’ sons the ordinances and commandments, and all the judgments that he knew, and he exhorted his sons to observe righteousness, and to cover the shame of their flesh, and to bless their Creator, and honour father and mother, and love their neighbour, and guard their souls
21 from fornication and uncleanness and all iniquity. For owing to these three things came the flood upon the earth, namely, owing to the fornication wherein the Watchers against the law of their ordinances went a whoring after the daughters of men, and took themselves wives of all which they
22 chose: and they made the beginning of uncleanness. And they begat sons the Naphidim, and they were all unlike, and they devoured one another: and the Giants slew the Naphil, and the
23 Naphil slew the Eljo, and the Eljo mankind, and one man another. And every one sold himself
24 to work iniquity and to shed much blood, and the earth was filled with iniquity
. And after this they sinned against the beasts and birds, and all that moves and walks on the earth: and much blood was shed on the earth, and every imagination and desire of men imagined vanity and evil
25 continually. And the Lord destroyed everything from off the face of the earth; because of the wickedness of their deeds, and because of the blood which they had shed in the midst of the earth

The Occult

Rev 18:23  And the light of a lamp will not still shine in you, never! And the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you, never! For your merchants were the great ones of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were led astray.
Rev 18:24  And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all the ones having been slain on the earth.

Enoch 7:10 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.

Enoc 8:1 Moreover Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered.
2 Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways.
3 Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and dividers of roots:
4 Armers taught the solution of sorcery;

5 Barkayal taught the observers of the stars,

7 Tamiel taught astronomy;
8 And Asaradel taught the motion of the moon,
9 And men, being destroyed, cried out; and their voice reached to heaven.

“Rabbi Jose says, following a tradition, that these [Nephilim] were Uzza and Azazel, whom, God deprived of their supernal sanctity. How, it may be asked, can they exist in this world? Rabbi Hiya answers, that they were of a class of spirits referred to in the words, ‘and birds which fly on the earth’ (Gen 1:20), and these, as we have said, appear to men in the form of human beings. If it is asked, how can they transform themselves? The answer is, that they do, in fact, transform themselves into all kinds of shapes, because when they come down from heaven they become as concrete as air and take human shape. These are Uzza and Azazel, who rebelled in heaven, and were cast down by God, and became corporeal on the earth and remained on it, not being able to divest themselves of their earthly form. Subsequently, they went astray after women, and up to this day they exist and teach men the arts of magic. They begat children whom they called Anakim (giants), while the Nephilim themselves were called ‘sons of God'” (Zohar, vol. 1, p. 186).

Tower of Babel

In the book of Jasher, it is written that the people thought to build the tower in order to war against Adonai YHWH and ascend into heaven.  1/3 wanted to ascend and fight him, 1/3 wanted to ascend to heaven and place their own gods there and serve them, and 1/3 wanted to ascend to heaven and smite Him with bows and spears…this is reminiscient of the battle of Armageddon spoken of in Revelation 16:16

Abraham was alive during the days of Noah.  According to Jasher 13:9 Abraham was 53 years old when Noah died.  Abraham was 50 years old when he was first called to leave Babylon.  The call to come out of Babylon is thematically connected to Abraham’s call to come out of Mesopotamia.

In the book of Jasher, Abraham is put into a fiery furnace but is not killed, just as Hananiah, Mishael, Azariah.  Therefore, according to ancient tradition…Nimrod=Nebuchadnezzar.  The reason Nebuchadnezzar put the 3 Hebrew men into the fire is because they wouldn’t bow down to an image, just as it is seen in Revelation.

Sacred Books of the East Volume 1 Assyria & Babylon pg 26
The city of Babylon owes its foundation to those who were
saved from the catastrophe of the flood ; these were the giants,
and they built the tower which is noticed in history. But
the tower being overthrown by the interposition of God, the
giants were scattered over all the earth.

Origin of the Mystery Religions

Rev 17:1  And one of the seven angels having the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying to me, Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot sitting on the many waters,
Rev 17:2  with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the ones inhabiting the earth became drunk from the wine of her fornication.
Rev 17:3  And he carried me away into a desert, by the Spirit. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, filled with names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:4  And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and being gilded with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominations and unclean things of her fornication.
Rev 17:5  And on her forehead was a name having been written: Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth.
Rev 17:6  And I saw the woman being drunk from the blood of the saints, and from the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And I marveled, seeing her, with a great marveling.

Enoc 19:1 Then Uriel said, Here the angels, who cohabited with women, appointed their leaders;
2 And being numerous in appearance
N30  made men profane, and caused them to err; so that they sacrificed to devils as to gods.
(30) Being numerous in appearance. Or, “assuming many forms” (Knibb, p. 106).

1Co 10:20  But the things the nations sacrifice, “they sacrifice to demons, and not to God.”

Deut. 32:17 But I do not want you to become sharers of demons;
1Co 10:21  you cannot drink the cup of the Lord and a cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord, and a table of demons.
Col 2:18  Let no one condemn you, delighting in humility and worship of the angels, pushing into things which he has not seen, being puffed up by the mind of his flesh without cause,
Deu 32:15  But Jeshurun grew fat, and kicked; you grew fat, thick and sated. And he abandoned God who made him, and fell away from the Rock of his salvation.
Deu 32:16  With strange gods they moved Him to jealousy; and with idols they provoked Him to anger.
Deu 32:17  They sacrificed to demons who were not God, to gods whom they did not know, new ones who came lately. Your fathers had not dreaded them.
Lev 17:7  And they shall not sacrifice their sacrifices any more to goats
(devils-sairim), after which they have gone whoring. This is a perpetual statute to them throughout their generations.
2Ch 11:14  For the Levites had abandoned their pasture land and their property. And they came to Judah and to Jerusalem; for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them out from acting as priests to YHWH.
2Ch 11:15  And
he made stand priests for himself for the high places, and for goats (devils), and for the calves that he made.
1Ti 4:1  But the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, cleaving to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons,

Encounters with UFO’s have occurred all throughout history. click here It is not a new phenomenon beginning at Roswell in 1947.  Alexander the Great, Columbus, St. Bartholomew and even ancient Sanskrit writings from India speak of UFO encounters.  This topic will need to be discussed in more detail in the future but suffice it to say, the UFO phenomenon may become a big part of the end time strong delusion.  One of the things that made me realize how this may become a great deception was a program on the history channel called UFO’s in the Bible.  In this program YHWH and the angels become ‘aliens’ that have been leading mankind for centuries.  The Word of YHWH coming to a prophet becomes an encounter of ‘alien telepathy’ and so forth.  Of course this is complete fallacy, but while watching this program I could see how if ‘alien’ beings came to earth they could use this to unite mankind.  Especially if they ‘prove’ that the Christ has been an alien being all along.

Here is a link on youtube to the History Channel’s program on UFO’s in the Bible.

Deception from other planets?

1Ti 4:1  But the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, cleaving to deceiving (G4108) spirits and teachings of demons (gods Act 17:18),
1Ti 4:2  in lying speakers in hypocrisy, being seared in their own conscience,

False 2nd coming

Demons are as clouds…

Enoch 15: 9 The spirits of the giants shall be like clouds, N25  which shall oppress, corrupt, fall, content, and bruise upon earth. (25) The Greek word for “clouds” here, nephelas, may disguise a more ancient reading, Napheleim (Nephilim).

Messiah Yahshua comes riding on the clouds (Malakim/angels/cherbubim)  the adversary comes riding on the clouds (demons)

Iron and Clay kingdom

Dan 2:43  And as you saw the iron mixed with the clay of the clay, they shall be mixed with the seed of men. But they shall not adhere to one another, even as iron does not mix with clay.
Dan 2:40  And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron {parzel-from Heb. barzel בּרזל. ..the outside letters of barzel form bal meaning to flow, mix and is the root of Babel.  The inside of the letters form raz meaning secret as it is used in Daniel 2:47.  On a deeper level it is pointing to mystery Babylon.} Inasmuch as iron crushes and smashes all things, and as the iron that shatters all these, it will crush and shatter.
Dan 2:41  And as to that you saw, the feet and the toes were partly (min-from) of potters’ clay (chasaph) and partly (min-from) of iron, the kingdom shall be divided (pelag Gen 10:25 referring back to the days of Noah and Mystery Babylon and the Tower of Babel). But there shall be in it the strength of iron, because you saw the iron mixed with clay of the potter.
Dan 2:42  And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong (ANGELIC?) and partly fragile (MAN?).
Dan 2:43  And as you saw the iron mixed (ARAB) with the clay (miry) of the clay, they shall be mixed with the seed of men. But they shall not adhere to one another, even as iron does not mix with clay.
The word MIXED in the previous verse is the Hebrew word ARAB..the same word for swarms/locusts…is this a connection to the opening of the bottomless pit in Revelation 9 and the locusts who come forth from it?
The word MIRY is the Aramaic word teet.  The pictograph of this word is two baskets…a reference to the teaching that Fallen Angels/Annunaki created man in clay jars/baskets???

Part of Speech: noun masculine
A Related Word by BDB/Strong’s Number: from an unused root meaning apparently to be sticky [rath perb. a demon. From H2894, through the idea of dirt to be swept away]
What is the connection between sweeping away and demons?
Mat 12:43  But when the unclean spirit goes from a man, he goes through dry places seeking rest and does not find it.
Mat 12:44  Then he says, I will return to my house from which I came out. And coming, he finds it standing empty, swept and decorated.

What is the word for CLAY? Chasaph from the root chaspas=flake-like, scale-like….is this reference to the supposed reptilian “gods” ancestry of the kings, presidents etc. of this world? Seems to be far-fetched but it is interesting that the deeper meaning of miry clay could be ‘men mixed with scale like demons.’

Dan 2:44  And in the days of these kings, the God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other people. It shall break in pieces and destroy all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.

Dan 7:23  And he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different (changed, diverse) from all kingdoms, and shall devour all the earth, and shall trample it down and crush it.

Aliens

There is an interesting allusion to ‘alien greys’ in the book of 3 Enoch.  This is not Scripture, but it was written in ancient times…long before Roswell.

3 Enoch (Hebrew Enoch)
(2) And he said to me : The spirits of the wicked go down to She’ol
by the hands of two angels of destruction: ZA’APHIEL and SIMKIEL
are their names. (3) SIMKIEL is appointed over the intermediate to
support them and purify them because of the great mercy of the
Prince of the Place (Maqom). ZA’APHIEL is appointed over the spirits
of the wicked4 in order to cast them down from the presence of the
Holy One, blessed be He, and from the splendour of the Shekina
5 to She’ol, to be punished in the fire of Gehenna5 with staves of
burning coal.
(4) And I went by his side, and he took me by his hand and showed
me all of them with his fingers.
(5) And I beheld the appearance of their faces (and, lo, it was)
as the appearance of children of men, and their bodies like eagles.
And not only that but (furthermore) the colour of the countenance
of the intermediate was like pale grey on account of their deeds
, for
there are stains upon them until they have become cleaned from their
iniquity in the fire.
(6) And the colour of the wicked was like the bottom of a pot on
account of 6 the wickedness of their doings.

Another connection to look at is Aleister Crowley.  Crowley was known as the most wicked man on the planet and proclaimed himself as the beast 666.  Crowley stated that he met a being named Aiwass who dictated to him the Book of the Law on April 8-10 1904.

This is what Crowley said this being looked like.

Crowley had a revelatory experience in 1904, while on holiday in Cairo, Egypt,which led to his founding of the Magickal philosophy known as Thelema. Aleister’s wife Rose started to behave in an odd way, and this started to lead Aleister to believe that an entity had made contact with her. At her instructions, he performed an invocation of the Egyptian God Horus on March 20 with (he wrote) “great success.” According to Crowley, the God told him that a new Aeon for mankind had begun, and that Crowley would serve as its prophet. Rose continued to give information, telling Crowley in detailed terms to await a further revelation. On 8 April and for the following two days at exactly noon he heard a voice, dictating the words of the text, Liber AL vel Legis, or The Book of the Law, which Crowley wrote down. The voice claimed to be that of Aiwass (or Aiwaz) “the minister of Hoor-paar-kraat”, or Horus, the god of air, child of Isis and Osiris and The Crowned and Conquering Child of the New Aeon, which was to be announced through his chosen scribe “the prince-priest the Beast”.

The influence that Crowley has made on our society is staggering, especially popular culture.  Since the 1960’s much of Crowley’s teachings have become mainstream in our society.   In can be summed up in the following:

do what thou wiltJohn Dee, who was the top occultist magician of his time during the 16th century conjured ‘grey alien’ like entities while using Enochian magic.  This magic was dictated to him by ‘angels.’  This is the same magic that Aleister Crowley used to conjure up Aiwass.


Satanic Kingdom

Angels have been ruling behind the scenes for a long time.  It will be in the last days kingdom that they make themselves manifest.

The adversary is given authority over this world system.

2Co 4:4  in whom the god of this age has blinded the thoughts of the unbelieving, so that the brightness of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God, should not dawn on them.
Joh 12:31  Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world shall be cast out.
Joh 14:30  I shall no longer speak many things with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.
Joh 16:11  and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
Eph 2:2  in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit now working in the sons of disobedience,

The rulers of this world abide in the sky
Eph 6:12  because wrestling against flesh and blood is not to us, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world’s rulers, of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenlies.

Col 1:13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

Jubilees 15:31…”and over all has He placed spirits in authority to lead them astray from Him.  32 But over Israel He did not appoint any angel or spirit, for He alone is their ruler, and He will preserve them and require them as the hand of His angels and His spirits, and at the hand of all His powers in order that He may preserve them and bless them, and that they may be His and He may be theirs from henceforth forever.

1Jn 5:18  We know that everyone being generated from God does not sin, but the one having been generated from God keeps himself, and the evil one does not touch him.
1Jn 5:19  We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in the evil.
Luk 4:6  And the Devil said to Him, I will give all this authority and their glory to You, because it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.
Luk 4:7  Then if You worship before me, all will be Yours.
Dan 10:13  But the king of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty one days. But, lo, Michael, one of the first rulers, came to help me. And I stayed there with the kings of Persia.
Dan 10:20  And he said, Do you know why I have come to you? And now I will return to fight with the ruler of Persia. And when I have gone out, then, lo, the ruler of Greece shall come.
Dan 10:21  But I will tell you what is written in the Scripture of Truth. And no one makes himself strong with me in these things except Michael your ruler.

The Kingdoms of the earth have angelic powers behind the scenes ruling them
Deu 32:8  when the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance; when He separated the sons of Adam, He set up the bounds of the peoples, according to the number of the sons of Israel.
LXX
Deu 32:8  ὅτε διεμέριζεν ὁ ὕψιστος ἔθνη, ὡς διέσπειρεν υἱοὺς Αδαμ, ἔστησεν ὅρια ἐθνῶν κατὰ ἀριθμὸν ἀγγέλων θεοῦ,
Deu 32:8  When the Most High divided the nations, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the nations according to the number of the angels of God.

4QDeut Dead Sea Scrolls translation of Deuteronomy 32:8 translates as benay El.



Plato in Critias also supports this concept, that a group of divine beings in ancient times, “the gods of the nations,” had divided up rule over the earth amongst themselves, a rule that continues today:
In the days of old the gods had the whole earth distributed among them by allotment. There was no quarrelling; for you cannot rightly suppose that the gods did not know what was proper for each of them to have, or, knowing this, that they would seek to procure for themselves by contention that which more properly belonged to others. They all of them by just apportionment obtained what they wanted, and peopled their own districts; and when they had peopled them they tended us, their nurselings and possessions, as shepherds tend their flocks, excepting only that they did not use blows or bodily force, as shepherds do, but governed us like pilots from the stern of the vessel, which is an easy way of guiding animals, holding our souls by the rudder of persuasion according to their own pleasure;-thus did they guide all mortal creatures.
Plato, Critias

Atlantis

The Beast government of Revelation has many connections to the ‘myths’ about Atlantis.  Looking at the ‘myths’ about Atlantis leads one back to the ‘Golden Age of Saturn’ before the flood.

Rev 13:1  And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten diadems, and on its heads names of blasphemy.
Rev 11:7  And when they complete their witness, the beast coming up out of the abyss will make war with them, and will overcome them, and will kill them.

Atlantis divided into 10
Point for point the story of Atlantis matches with Moses and Enoch’s accounts of the antediluvian world, and how divine beings had intermarried with humans, giving birth to semi-divine giants. Poseidon is said here to have married a human woman, and her name is even given: Cleito. Cleito bore him 10 sons, and he arranged and populated the island of Atlantis with such florae and faunae that their every need was met.

He also begat and brought up five pairs of twin male children; and dividing the island of Atlantis into ten portions, he gave to the first-born of the eldest pair his mother’s dwelling and the surrounding allotment, which was the largest and best, and made him king over the rest; the others he made princes, and gave them rule over many men, and a large territory. And he named them all; the eldest, who was the first king, he named Atlas, and after him the whole island and the ocean were called Atlantic. To his twin brother, who was born after him, and obtained as his lot the extremity of the island towards the Pillars of Heracles, facing the country which is now called the region of Gades in that part of the world, he gave the name which in the Hellenic language is Eumelus, in the language of the country which is named after him, Gadeirus. Of the second pair of twins he called one Ampheres, and the other Evaemon. To the elder of the third pair of twins he gave the name Mneseus, and Autochthon to the one who followed him. Of the fourth pair of twins he called the elder Elasippus, and the younger Mestor. And of the fifth pair he gave to the elder the name of Azaes, and to the younger that of Diaprepes. All these and their descendants for many generations were the inhabitants and rulers of divers islands in the open sea; and also, as has been already said, they held sway in our direction over the country within the Pillars as far as Egypt and Tyrrhenia.8
Atlas, in the Greek myths, was actually a titan, one of the original deities who ruled over Earth before the Olympic gods (Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, etc.) overthrew them and took supremacy over Earth. The titans of the Greek myths were giants of great stature that ruled over a “golden age” of mankind: “The Golden Age of mankind lived during the rule of Kronos and the Titanes. This race of man was created by Prometheus and lived in peace and harmony, blessed with the fruits of the earth which grew freely in a garden of Eden-like paradise.” However, all was not well in Paradise, as the titans did not share their power freely: “The Titanes were jealous of their privileges and refused to devolve any power to the younger generations of gods. Zeus led these in rebellion and after a violent ten year war the Titanes were overthrown and cast into Tartaros.” Tartaros is the Greek word for “hell” or “abyss”, the same place where the archangels threw the fallen angels after they had intermarried with women and brought such violence and corruption to Earth. (1 Enoch 10:1-16, cf. also 2 Peter 2:5)

So Plato’s account of Atlantis so far matches Moses and Enoch’s descriptions of the antediluvian world point for point: divine beings were given rule over various parts of Earth, and they intermarried with human females, who gave birth to giants. Up to this point, however, the account is different on one important point. In the Critias, Atlantis was a place of earthly paradise, set up by Poseidon to be an ideal place for his progeny to live. However, at the end of the narrative, Plato’s account of the rise of Atlantis then turns to its fall, and our next point of collusion is matched perfectly:

For many generations, as long as the divine nature lasted in them, they were obedient to the laws, and well-affectioned towards the god, whose seed they were; for they possessed true and in every way great spirits, uniting gentleness with wisdom in the various chances of life, and in their intercourse with one another. They despised everything but virtue, caring little for their present state of life, and thinking lightly of the possession of gold and other property, which seemed only a burden to them; neither were they intoxicated by luxury; nor did wealth deprive them of their self-control; but they were sober, and saw clearly that all these goods are increased by virtue and friendship with one another, whereas by too great regard and respect for them, they are lost and friendship with them. By such reflections and by the continuance in them of a divine nature, the qualities which we have described grew and increased among them; but when the divine portion began to fade away, and became diluted too often and too much with the mortal admixture, and the human nature got the upper hand, they then, being unable to bear their fortune, behaved unseemly, and to him who had an eye to see grew visibly debased, for they were losing the fairest of their precious gifts; but to those who had no eye to see the true happiness, they appeared glorious and blessed at the very time when they were full of avarice and unrighteous power.
Just like the Nephilim, the titans grew more and more abased as they continued to intermarry with humans, becoming twisted, abhorrent travesties of their formerly glorious selves. Just as good as they were in the beginning, they became irretrievably evil, with an unbridled lust for power and wealth that led to a mighty thirst for conquest. The “gods” of Atlantis wished to extend their power beyond their divinely mandated boundaries, and thus risked the judgment of God. Their decision to wage war on Europe and Asia in order to dominate the world, causing great corruption and disorder in the process, was an indicator that these deities had gone too far and were in need of chastisement. The final point of collusion in the two accounts, the biblical and the Platonic, now comes to the fore, as Zeus, leader of the Greek gods, convenes a council in heaven and decides to punish the Atlanteans for their unbridled hubris.

An allusion to the kingdom of Atlantis can be seen in the book of Ezekiel when the prophet is speaking of the prince and king of Tyre

Eze 28:2  Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, So says the Lord YHWH, Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods, in the heart of the seas; yet you are a man, and not God, though you give your heart as the heart of gods.
Eze 28:3  Behold, you are wiser than Daniel. Every one of the secret things are not hidden to you.
Eze 28:4  With your wisdom and with your understanding you have made riches for yourself, and have worked gold and silver into your treasuries.
Eze 28:5  By your great wisdom, by your trade you have multiplied your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches.
Eze 28:6  So the Lord YHWH says this: Because you have given your heart as the heart of gods,
Eze 28:7  behold, so I will bring on you awesome strangers of the nations. And they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom and will defile your splendor.
Eze 28:8  They will cause you to go down to the Pit, and you shall die the deaths of the slain in the heart of the seas.
Eze 28:9  Saying, do you say, I am of the gods before him who strikes you? But you are a man, and not God, in the hands of him who pierces you.
Eze 28:10  You shall die the deaths of the uncircumcised, by the hand of strangers. For I have spoken, says the Lord YHWH.
Eze 28:11  And the Word of YHWH was to me, saying,
Eze 28:12  Son of man, lift up a lament over the king of Tyre, and say to him, So says the Lord YHWH: You seal the measure, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Eze 28:13  You have been in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering; the ruby, the topaz, and the jasper, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the carbuncle, and gold; the workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes in you. In the day you were created, they were prepared.
Eze 28:14  You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy heights of God, where you were. You walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:15  You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, until iniquity was found in you.
Eze 28:16  By the multitude of your trade, they filled your midst with violence, and you sinned. So I cast you defiled from the height of God, and I destroyed you, O covering cherub, from among the stones of fire.
Eze 28:17  Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. I have cast you to the ground. I will put you before kings, that they may see you.
Eze 28:18  By the host of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trade, you have defiled your holy places. So I brought a fire from your midst and it shall devour you, and I will give you for ashes on the earth in the sight of all who see you.
Eze 28:19  All who know you among the peoples shall be appalled at you. You shall be terrors, and you will not be forever.

Yam-the Beast from the Sea

In Genesis 36 verse 24 and odd addition of information is given about Anah.  He is said to have found mules (yam) in the wilderness.  The word for mules is yam which is translated in the Targum as terror.  In the book of Jasher chapter 36 verse 29-35 it is told of 120 great and terrible animals that came out from the wilderness at the other side of the sea and came to the place where the mules were.  These animals were in the shape of men from the middle down and in the shape of different beasts from the middle up.  The animals attacked Anah so he fled to the city and related to his sons and brothers what happened to him.
Hab 3:8  Did YHWH burn against rivers? Or was Your anger against the rivers? Or Your fury against the sea? For You ride on horses; Your chariots of salvation.
In the JPS footnotes on this verse it is written “Neharim=floods & Yam=Sea were marine monsters vanquished by the LORD in hoary antiquity.  On Yam see Ps 74:13; Job 7:12 Being called both Yam & Nahar figures in early Canaanite literature.
Psa 74:13  You broke the sea (yam) by Your strength; You burst the heads of sea-monsters (tanin) in the waters.
Psa 74:14  You cracked open the heads of leviathan; You gave him to be food for the people of the wilderness.
Job 7:12  Am I a sea
(yam), or a sea-monster (tanin), that You set a watch over me?
Job 26:12  With His power He quiets the sea
(yam), and by His understanding He shatters pride (rahab).

Isa 51:9  Awake! Awake! Arm of YHWH, put on strength. Awake, as in days of old, everlasting generations. Was it not You cutting in pieces Rahab, and piercing the sea monster?
Isa 51:10  Was it not You drying up the sea, the waters of the great deep, who set the depths of the sea a way for the redeemed to pass?
Isa 51:11  Yea, the ransomed of YHWH shall return and come to Zion with singing, and everlasting joy shall be on their head; gladness and joy shall overtake them; sorrow and sighing shall flee.

The Rephaim are under the waters writhing until the appointed time of their release {Rev 13:1}

Job 26:5  Dead (rapha) things are formed (chul-writhe, twist, wait longingly) from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

LITV
Job 26:5  The departed spirits are made to writhe from beneath the waters, and their inhabitants.
Job 26:5  μὴ γίγαντες (gigantes-giants) μαιωθήσονται ὑποκάτωθεν ὕδατος καὶ τῶν γειτόνων αὐτοῦ;
The Targumist seems to have a notion of this, or at least refers unto it, paraphrasing the words thus,

“is it possible that the mighty men (or giants) should be created (that is, recreated or regenerated; that is, raised from the dead); seeing they are under the waters, and their armies?”

Rev 9:2  And he opened the pit of the abyss*. And smoke went up out of the pit, like smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, and the air, by the smoke of the pit.
G12

A variation of G899; depth, that is, (by implication) the sea: – deep.

Antichrist

Dan 11:39  And he shall act in the strongholds of the fortresses with a foreign (strange, alien) god (Eloha), whom he shall acknowledge. He shall multiply in glory, and he shall cause them to rule over many and shall divide the land for a price.

Who is the “them” in the previous verse…the foreign god eloha?

Dan 11:31  And forces will stand away from him, and they will profane the sanctuary, the fortress. And they shall remove the regular sacrifice, and they will place the abomination that desolates.
Dan 11:32  And he will defile by flatteries those who do evil against the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will work.
Dan 11:33  And those who understand among the people will instruct many, yet they will stumble by the sword and by flame, by exile and spoil for days.
Dan 11:34  And when they shall stumble, they will be helped with a little help. But many will join them with hypocrisy.
Dan 11:35  And many of those who understand shall stumble, to refine and to purge them, and to make white to the time of the end. (This seems to indicate that there will be some believers who will be deceived by the antichrist/beast but in the end will see the truth) For it is yet for the appointed time.
Dan 11:36  And the king shall do according to his will. And he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god; he shall even speak marvelous things against the God of gods and shall prosper until the fury is completed. For that which is decreed shall be done.
Dan 11:37  He shall not regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women; yea, he will not come to any god. For he shall magnify himself above all.
Dan 11:38  But in his place he shall honor the god of forces (*mahuzzim-angels), and he shall honor a god whom his fathers did not know, with gold and silver and with precious stones, and desirable things.
forces:  or, munitions, Heb. Mauzzim or, gods protectors, Saints and angels, who were invoked as intercessors and protectors, had miracles ascribed to them, their relics worshipped, and their shrines and images adorned with costly offerings.

John Gill commentary
Dan 11:38 – But in his estate shall he honour the god of forces,…. Or god Mahuzzim (q); departed saints and their images, whom the Papists make their protectors, defenders, and guardians: the word signifies towers, strong holds, fortresses; and by these titles the martyrs, saints departed, are called by the ancient fathers, who first introduced the worship of them: So Basil (r), speaking of the forty martyrs, says,

“these are they, who obtaining our country, like certain towers, afford us a refuge against the incursion of enemies:”

and a little after thus addresses them,

“O ye common keepers of mankind, the best companions of our cares, the suffragans of our prayers and wishes, “most powerful” ambassadors with God, &c.:”

and elsewhere (s) he prays,

“that God would keep the church unmoved, and fortified with the great towers of the martyrs;”

so Chrysostom (t) calls them patrons and protectors. Or, “with God he shall honour” (u); these along with him, or besides him; these shall be the objects of religious worship and honour, as they are: and that “in his estate”; or in his room and stead, that is, of the true God, our Lord Jesus Christ, the only Mediator between God and man; and yet angels and departed saints are set up as mediators in his stead:

The Hebrew word מעוז  mâ‛ôz means, properly, a strong or fortified place, a fortress; and Gesenius (Lexicon) supposes that the reference here is to “the god of fortresses, a deity of the Syrians obtruded upon the Jews, perhaps Mars.”  So also Grotius, C. B. Michaelis, Staudlin, Bertholdt, and Winer. Dereser, Havernick, and Lengerke explain it as referring to the Jupiter Capitolinus that Antiochus had learned to worship by his long residence in Rome, and whose worship he transferred to his own country.
while Hitzig, by changing מָעֻזִּים into יָם מָעֹז, fortress of the sea, thinks that Melkart, or the Phoenician Hercules, is referred to.

Mahuzzim then refers to angels or ‘gods’.

Dan 11:39  And he shall act in the strongholds of the fortresses with a foreign god, whom he shall acknowledge. He shall multiply in glory, and he shall cause them to rule over many and shall divide the land for a price.
Dan 11:40  And at the end time, the king of the south will engage in butting with him. And the king of the north shall come against him like a tempest, with chariots and with horsemen and with many ships. And he shall go into the lands and shall overflow and pass over.
Dan 11:41  And he shall enter into the glorious land, and many will be stumbled. But these shall escape out of his hand: Edom and Moab, and the chief of the sons of Ammon.
Dan 11:42  And his hand will stretch out against the lands, and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
Dan 11:43  But he will rule over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all Egypt’s desirable things. And the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
Dan 11:44  But news shall trouble him from the east and from the north. And he will go out with great fury to destroy and to devote many to destruction.
Dan 11:45  And he shall plant his palace tents between the seas, in the glorious holy mountain. Yet he shall come to his end, and there is not a helper for him.

The term “Novus Ordo Seclorum,” A New Order of the Ages, was adapted by Charles Thomson in 1782 who, while designing the Great Seal of the United States, was inspired by a line in Virgil’s Ecologue IV from the first century:

Now the last age by Cumae’ Sibyl has come and gone,

And the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew:

Justice returns, old Saturn’s reign

With a new breed of men sent down from heaven.

On do thou, at the boy’s birth in whom

The iron shall cease, the golden race arise,

Befriend him, chaste Lucina: ‘this thine own Apollo* reigns….

He shall receive the life of gods,

And see Heroes and gods commingling,

And himself be seen of them,

And with his father’s worth.

*Apollo is referring Revelation 9 and the leader of the 200 million “man” army of fallen ones.

S.F. Dunlap’s version of Virgil’s 4th Eclogue in Vestigates of the Spirit-History of Man 1858 pg 253.  Albert Pike made extensive use of Dunlap’s writings.

Quoted on page 391 The Secret Architecture of our Nation’s Capital – David Ovason
“Now the Virgin returns, the Saturnian reigns return:
Now a new Offspring is sent down from high heaven.
O chaste Lucina favour the Boy now being born, with whom the iron race
Shall end
and a golden arise in all the world…”

2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (apolia…Apollyon Rev9:11)

Fall of Babylon and the nations

Isa 13:3  I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.
Isa 13:3  ἐγὼ συντάσσω, καὶ ἐγὼ ἄγω αὐτούς· ἡγιασμένοι εἰσίν, καὶ ἐγὼ ἄγω αὐτούς· γίγαντες ἔρχονται πληρῶσαι τὸν θυμόν μου χαίροντες ἅμα καὶ ὑβρίζοντες.

γίγαντες- gigantes (giants)

Just as Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed by malakim sent by YHWH, so too Babylon will be destroyed by the same.

Sir 39:28  There be spirits that are created for vengeance, which in their fury lay on sore strokes; in the time of destruction they pour out their force, and appease the wrath of him that made them.
Sir 39:29  Fire, and hail, and famine, and death, all these were created for vengeance;
Sir 39:30  Teeth of wild beasts, and scorpions, serpents, and the sword punishing the wicked to destruction.
Sir 39:31  They shall rejoice in his commandment, and they shall be ready upon earth, when need is; and when their time is come, they shall not transgress his word.

Isa 13:4  The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.
Isa 13:5  They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

Judgment of the nations and the descending of YHWH’s mighty ones;
the Roaring of YHWH (Amos 1:2) occurs in the end times, during Jacob’s trouble when He begins to bring back the exiles of Israel.

Joe 3:11  Gather yourselves and come, all you nations; and gather yourselves together all around. O YHWH, bring down Your mighty ones.

Joe 3:1  For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
Joe 3:2  I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

Joe 3:3  And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
Joe 3:4  Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head;
Joe 3:5  Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things:

Joe 3:6  The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.
Joe 3:7  Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head:
Joe 3:8  And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.
Joe 3:9  Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
Joe 3:10  Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.

Joe 3:11  Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
Joe 3:12  Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
Joe 3:13  Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
Joe 3:14  Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
Joe 3:15  The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
Joe 3:16  The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
Joe 3:17  So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

Isa 14:9  Sheol from below is stirred for you (lucifer), to meet you at your coming; it stirs up the departed spirits (Rephaim) for you, all the he goats (sairim-satyrs) of the earth. It has raised all the kings of the nations from their thrones.

Babylon becomes a habitation of demons

Rev 18:2  And he cried in a strong, great voice, saying, Babylon the great has fallen! It has fallen, and it has become a dwelling-place of demons, and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean bird, even having been hated,

Isa 34:1  Nations, come near to hear; and peoples, listen! Let the earth hear, and its fullness, the world and all its offspring.

1) “Lilith”, name of a female goddess known as a night demon who haunts the desolate places of Edom
1a) might be a nocturnal animal that inhabits desolate places
Līlīth (Syr. and Zab. lelitho), lit., the creature of the night, was a female demon (shēda^h) of the popular mythology; according to the legends, it was a malicious fairy that was especially hurtful to children, like some of the fairies of our own fairy tales.

The figure of Lilith first appeared in a class of wind and storm demons or spirits as Lilitu, in Sumer, circa 4000 BC.

The Seductress (4Q184). The first and irrefutable Lilith reference in the Song occurs in 4Q510, fragment 1:
And I, the Instructor, proclaim His glorious splendour so as to frighten and to te[rrify] all the spirits of the destroying angels, spirits of the bastards, demons, Lilith, howlers, and [desert dwellers…] and those which fall upon men without warning to lead them astray from a spirit of understanding and to make their heart and their […] desolate during the present dominion of wickedness and predetermined time of humiliations for the sons of lig[ht], by the guilt of the ages of [those] smitten by iniquity – not for eternal destruction, [bu]t for an era of humiliation for transgression.

Cockatrices

1.a legendary monster with a deadly glance, supposedly hatched by a serpent from the egg of a cock, and commonly represented with the head, legs, and wings of a cock and the body and tail of a serpent. compare basilisk (def. 1).
1.classical mythology. a creature, variously described as a serpent, lizard, or dragon, said to kill by its breath or look.

1a) a viper snake or adder
Part of Speech: noun masculine
A Related Word by BDB/Strong’s Number: from an unused root meaning to extrude
Cockatrices sent during time of wormwood
Jer 8:14  Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the LORD.
Jer 8:15  We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble!
Jer 8:16  The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.
verse 16 is pointing to Revelation 9:7.  The horses=the locusts.  The neighing {מצהלה} is connected to locusts {צלצל} and his strong ones (abiyr) means angels as Psalm 78:25 states.  Another indication of this connection is that they devour (akal-eat, consume) the land.  This points to locust as well.  Coming from Dan connects to Abaddon/Antichrist but that will need to be addressed in more detail in the future.
Jer 8:17  For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD.
Isa 14:29  Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent (seraph).

In the Egyptian Exodus the Targum equates the rod that was turned into a serpent as a basilisk.
And Mosheh and Aharon went in unto Pharoh, and did as the Lord had commanded. And Aharon threw down the rod before the sight of Pharoh, and before the sight of his servants, and it became a basilisk.
Basilisk
BAS’ILISK, n. s as z. [L. basiliscus.]

1. A fabulous serpent, called a cockatrice, and said to be produced from a cock’s egg brooded by a serpent. The ancients alledged that its hissing would drive away all other serpents, and that its breath and even its look was fatal. Some writers suppose that a real serpent exists under this name.

The word for serpent in Exodus 7 is not the normal word for serpent, the word is tanniym which is usually translated as a dragon

Eze 32:2  Son of man, lift up a lament over Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and say to him, You were like a young lion of the nations, and you were like the monster in the seas. And you burst forth in your rivers and stirred up the waters with your feet and fouled their rivers.

Binding

Rev 20:1  And I saw an angel coming down out of Heaven, having the key of the abyss, and a great chain on his hand.
Rev 20:2  And he laid hold of the dragon, the old serpent who is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
Rev 20:3  and threw him into the abyss, and shut him up, and sealed over him, that he should not still lead astray the nations, until the thousand years are fulfilled. And after these things, he must be set loose a little time.

The future judgment is connected with the Flood.
2Pe 3:5  For this is hidden from them by their willing it so, that heavens were of old, and earth by water, and through water, having subsisted by the Word of God,
2Pe 3:6  through which the world which then was, being flooded by water, perished.
2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth now, having been stored up by the same Word, are being kept for fire to a day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

Enoch Chapter 1
3Upon their account I spoke and conversed with him, who will go forth from his habitation, the Holy and Mighty One, the God of the world:

4Who will hereafter tread upon Mount Sinai; appear with his hosts; and be manifested in the strength of his power from heaven.

5All shall be afraid, and the Watchers be terrified.

6Great fear and trembling shall seize them, even to the ends of the earth. The lofty mountains shall be troubled, and the exalted hills depressed, melting like a honeycomb in the flame. The earth shall be immerged, and all things which are in it perish; while judgment shall come upon all, even upon all the righteous:
Isa 24:19  The earth is breaking, breaking! The earth is crashing, crashing! The earth is tottering, tottering.
Isa 24:20  Like a drunkard, the earth is staggering, staggering! And it rocks to and fro like a hut. And its trespass is heavy on it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
Isa 24:21  And it shall be in that day, YHWH shall punish the army of the high place on high, and on the kings of the land on the land.
Isa 24:22  And they will be gathered, a gathering of prisoners in a dungeon. And they shall be shut up in a prison; and after many days they will be visited.
Isa 24:23  Then the moon shall blush, and the sun shall be ashamed, when YHWH of Hosts shall reign in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem; and before His elders is His glory.

Jubilee 5:5 ,6 which He had created. But Noah found grace before the eyes of the Lord. And against the angels whom He had sent upon the earth, He was exceedingly wroth, and He gave commandment to root them out of all their dominion, and He bade us to bind them in the depths of the earth, and
7 behold they are bound in the midst of them, and are (kept) separate. And against their sons went forth a command from before His face that they should be smitten with the sword, and be removed
8 from under heaven. And He said ‘My spirit shall not always abide on man; for they also are flesh
9 and their days shall be one hundred and twenty years’. And He sent His sword into their midst that each should slay his neighbour, and they began to slay each other till they all fell by the sword
10 and were destroyed from the earth. And their fathers were witnesses (of their destruction), and after this they were bound in the depths of the earth for ever, until the day of the great condemnation, when judgment is executed on all those who have corrupted their ways and their works before


Angels of evil

Angels of evils during the plagues of Exodus.  This lines with the fallen angels of Genesis 6.
Psa 78:49  He sent the heat of His anger on them, fury and indignation and distress, a sending of angels of evils.
Wis 17:1  For great are thy judgments, and cannot be expressed: therefore unnurtured souls have erred.
Wis 17:2  For when unrighteous men thought to oppress the holy nation; they being shut up in their houses, the prisoners of darkness, and fettered with the bonds of a long night, lay there exiled from the eternal providence.
Wis 17:3  For while they supposed to lie hid in their secret sins, they were scattered under a dark veil of forgetfulness, being horribly astonished, and troubled with strange apparitions.
RSVA verse 4
Wis 17:4 For not even the inner chamber that held them protected them from fear, but terrifying sounds rang out around them, and dismal phantoms with gloomy faces (JOE 2:6) appeared.

Wis 17:4  For neither might the corner that held them keep them from fear: but noises as of waters falling down sounded about them, and sad visions appeared unto them with heavy countenances.
Wis 17:5  No power of the fire might give them light: neither could the bright flames of the stars endure to lighten that horrible night.
Wis 17:6  Only there appeared unto them a fire kindled of itself, very dreadful: for being much terrified, they thought the things which they saw to be worse than the sight they saw not.
Wis 17:8  For they, that promised to drive away terrors and troubles from a sick soul, were sick themselves of fear, worthy to be laughed at.
Wis 17:9  For though no terrible thing did fear them; yet being scared with beasts that passed by, and hissing of serpents,
Wis 17:10  They died for fear, denying that they saw the air, which could of no side be avoided.

Exodus 8:21
Exo 8:21  Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.
Swarms=arob=mixed as in Daniel 2:43…Targum renders the word WILD BEASTS…

Tribulation

Psalm 91 is teaching about the tribulation.

Psa 91:1  He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide in the shade of the Almighty.
Psa 91:2  I will say to YHWH: My Refuge and my Fortress, my God; I will trust in Him.
Psa 91:3  For He delivers you from the fowler’s snare, from destruction’s plague.
Psa 91:4  With His feathers He will cover you, and under His wings you shall seek refuge {This is referring back to the Egyptian Exodus and the greater Exodus spoken of in Revelation 12 both of which allude to the fallen angel deception}; His truth is a shield and buckler.

Deu 32:10  He found him in a desert land, and in the waste, a howling wilderness. He encircled him and cared for him; He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.
Deu 32:11  As the eagle stirs up its nest; it hovers over its young; it spreads out its wings and takes it, and bears it on its wing {Exodus 19:4; Revelation 12:14}
Deu 32:12  YHWH alone led him, and there was no strange god (El nekar…referring back to Dan 2 and the strange/alien Eloha) with him.

Psa 91:5  You shall not fear the terror of night, nor of the arrow that flies by day;
Psa 91:6  of the plague
(dever) that walks in darkness nor of the destruction laying waste (shud) at noonday.
Psa 91:10  no evil shall happen to You, nor shall any plague come near Your tent.

The ancients interpreted these verses of supernatural attacks of the enemy.
Targum
5. Be not afraid of the terror of demons who walk at night, of the arrow of the angel of death that he looses during the day;

6.     Of the death that walks in darkness, of the band of demons that attacks at noon.
10.  The lord of the world responded and thus he said: “No harm shall happen to you; and no plague or demon shall come near to your tents.”

John Gill’s commentary
Psa 91:5  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night,…. The terrible things that happen in the night; as fire, storms and tempests, invasion of enemies, murders, thefts, and, robberies: a good man, when he has committed himself and his family to the care and protection of God by prayer, has no reason to be anxiously careful of these things, or to indulge a slavish fear about them; see Psa_3:5, the Targum is,

“thou shall not be afraid for the fear of devils that walk in the night:”

so Jarchi interprets this, and the next verse, of such; as do others of the Jewish writers: a man that trusts in the Lord need not be afraid of men or devils: a fear of evil spirits is natural to men, and very early appeared; perhaps it took its rise from the fatal affair of the fall of our first parents, through an intercourse with an evil spirit; and ever since has been imprinted on human nature an aversion to evil spirits, and a dread of them, and even of all spirits in general; see Job_4:13,

nor for the arrow that flieth by day; the judgments of God, such as the sword, famine, and pestilence; these are called the arrows of God, Deu_32:23 (q), because they move swiftly, come suddenly, and strike surely, and are open and visible; they are sent by the Lord, and are ordered and directed by him, and hit and hurt whom he pleases, and none else; and therefore such who dwell in the secret of the Lord, and under his shadow, need not be distressed about them: the Targum interprets it of the arrow of the angel of death, which he sends out in the day; see Heb_2:14, so Jarchi understands it of a demon that flies like an arrow.

(q) εχεπευκες βελους—-κηλα θεοιο, Homer. Iliad. 1. v. 51, 53.

Psa 91:6  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness,…. Some think, and not without cause, that what is figuratively expressed in the preceding verse is here explained; and, indeed, the “pestilence” may well be called the “terror by night”: the name of the plague, at a distance, is terrible; the near approach of it is more so; when it enters a country, city, or town, what fleeing is there from it? and in the night season it is more dreadful than in the day; not only to think of it in the gloomy watches of the night, but to see the vast numbers carried out to be interred, and to hear the dismal cry, Bring out your dead: and so it is here said to “walk in darkness”; in the darkness of the night, or to arise from dark and unknown causes; when it moves and walks through cities, towns, and villages, and there is no stopping it: and this also may be the “arrow that flieth by day”; which flies as swift as an arrow, and that flies as swift as a bird (r); this is taken out of the Lord’s quiver, has its commission and direction from him, and does execution by night and by day: the plague that smote the firstborn in Egypt was in the night; and that which was in David’s time, and might be the occasion of penning this psalm, began in the day, Exo_12:29,

nor for the destruction that wasteth at noon day; as the pestilence, which may be increased, and rage the more, through the heat of the day; and which destroys great numbers wherever it comes: seventy thousand were taken off in three days by the plague occasioned by David’s numbering of the people: the Targum is,

“of a company of devils that destroy at noon day;”

that is, thou shall not be afraid: some think respect is had to a pestilential hot wind, common in the eastern countries, which begins to blow about eight o’clock in a morning, and is hottest at noon; which instantly suffocates persons, burns them, and reduces them to ashes presently, which the Arabs call “sammiel”, or a poison wind (s).

(r) “Voluces sagittae”, Virgil. Aeneid. 12. “volante sagitta”, Ovid. Trist. eleg. 10. (s) Vide Thevenot’s Travels, par. 2. sect. 1. c. 12. p. 54. & l. 3. c. 8. p. 135.

Sammiel (poison wind) = Samael?
Samael (also Sammael) is an important archangel in Talmudic and post-Talmudic lore, as well as Christian tradition and demonology, a figure who is accuser, seducer, and destroyer. He has been regarded as both good and evil. In rabbinic lore he is identified as the chief of Satan’s and the Angel of death. In the Secrets of Enoch (Enoch II) he is a prince of demons and a magician. He was a guardian angel of Esau and a patron of the sinful empire of Rome. Samael is usually considered to be the true angelic name of Satan. The etymology of his name is sometimes thought to be a combination of “sam,” and in some combinations ‘poison’,[clarify] and “el,” meaning ‘God'; thus he is the poison of God.

DNA & ‘ alien creators’

“Aliens” (Fallen Angels) may teach they are the creators of man.  Annunaki said they genetically engineered cro-magnum man to create a slave race “adam” in clay jars. This lines up with the ‘science’ of today and the theory of evolution.
In Genesis 1 it says Let Us make man in Our Image. This can be twisted an manipulated to mean angels/annunaki created man in their image.  Elohim can refer to angels as it is seen Shaul’s interpretation of Psalm 8:5 in Hebrews 1:6 and could be used when the fallen angels return to earth to ‘recreate’ mankind or to help them to ‘evolve’ in their next step of evolution.

Gen 1:26  And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth.
Gen 1:27  And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female.

Is this why YHWH spoke through Jeremiah saying the following:?
Jer 10:11  So you shall say to them, The gods who have not made the heavens and the earth, they shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens.

Interestingly, Jeremiah 10 is the chapter talking about the “Christmas tree” which can be traced back to the tree of knowledge of good and evil which the heathen religion consideres the tree of life.  The tree of life is supposedly a symbol for DNA.  The Christmas tree is then a symbol of the “god-man.” This is probably why the tree was used as a symbol for the heathen.  The Christmas tree traces back to the Saturnalia celebration which is a picture of the Golden Age of Saturnclick here .  Saturnalia/Christmas is the celebration of the kingdom of Antichristclick here .
