Mesopotamia – Part 2 of 2

Andrew Collins, author of From the Ashes of Angels gives more information regarding our ‘fallen angel’ history. He talks about some Enochian literature that was translated by Mani the founder of the Gnostic Christian group the Manichaean’s that talk about the plight of the Nephilim. In the translation, the original Aramaic names of key characters were replaced by those of specific Iranian figures who feature in the Iranian text the Shahnameh. To the author, the usage of these two quite specific names from the Shahnameh seemed to imply that Mani saw the Iranian royal dynasty of Sam and Narriman as direct descendants of Shamyaza, the leader of the Watchers. Collins states that this kingly line included both Zal and Rustam, “…who both possessed the physiological features of the fallen race.”

The plot thickens, however, as the author points out that in some Manichean texts on Enochian material, the name Sam is rendered S’hm, a name that in Hebrew means ‘name’, ‘pillar’, or ‘high’. He points out that it is the name of one of Noah’s sons as well as the root behind the first part of the name Shamyaza. He goes on to say that the suffix yaza is closely linked to the Zend word yazd or yazata, meaning ‘angel’ or divine being. Then he makes the statement that the biggest mystery seemed to be why giant babies with demon like characteristics were at first abhorred by their immediate family, but went on to become the greatest heroes or teachers of their age. He cites Noah as one example. Collins says that to the Hebrews the presence of such qualities would appear to have been viewed differently. In their opinion, “only a true patriarch or teacher of righteousness, descended of the line of Seth, would have possessed a shining countenance; probably the reason why biblical figures such as Abraham, Elijah, Enoch and Noah were all accredited with having both a facial radiance and great stature in post exilic Apocrypha and folklore. …Yet somehow the belief in a shining countenance associated with infants born of the angels would appear to have lingered right down to twentieth century London.”

He goes on to relate a story of an ‘angel baby’ in twentieth century England who was described as having a shining, white complexion with bright red cheeks and eyes that shone. For good luck, people passing by on the street would put money into the child’s buggy. In this, we find that even fairly recently, angel-humans were not considered evil by some people. I have read accounts that say that Noah’s sons Ham and Japheth were giants. There is an Armenian legend of a giant named Hayk who was said to have killed Nimrod, the grandson of Ham, who was also a giant. Hayk was a descendant of Noah’s son Japheth. The following comes from Wikipedia:

“Movses (Moses) gave Hayk’s genealogy as follows: Japhet, Gomer & Tiras, Torgom, Hayk, and his descendants as Armanak, Aramais, Amasya, Gegham, Harma, Aram and Ara Geghetsik. Hayk was also the founder of the Haykazuni Dynasty. Some of the prominent Armenian royal houses such as the Bagratuni, Khorkhoruni, Bznuni, Syuni, Vahevuni, Manavazian, Arran among others, had traced their genealogy to Hayk Nahapet. According to Juansher, Hayk, “was prince of the seven brothers and stood in service to the giant Nimrod (Nebrovt’) who first ruled the entire world as king. Hayk was a handsome, friendly man, with curly hair, sparkling eyes, and strong arms. He was a man of giant stature, a mighty archer and fearless warrior. Hayk and his people, from the time of their forefathers, Noah and Japhet, had migrated south toward the warmer lands near Babylon. In that land there ruled a wicked giant, Bel. Bel tried to impose his tyranny upon Hayk’s people. But proud Hayk refused to submit to Bel. As soon as his son Aramaneak was born, Hayk rose up, and led his people back to the land of his forefathers, the land of Ararat. At the foot of the mountains, he built his home, Haykashen.”

Here we have a descendant of Japheths who is described as having giant stature. We are also told that Nimrod was a giant. Nimrod was descended from Noah’s son Ham. I have never seen Shem, the other son of Noah, described as a giant. The Israelites have never been described as giants, but their enemies were. Why Japheth and Ham’s descendants would be giants and not Shems is mystifying. It could be that Shem was a giant too and I just haven’t found evidence of it yet. The following is an excerpt from the gnostic text the Pistis Sophia which was dictated by Jesus to the apostle Philip, it’s a ‘for those with ears to hear’ document;

“These are the regions of the way of the midst. For it came to pass, when the rulers of Adamas mutinied and persistently practiced congress, procreating rulers, archangels, angels, servitors and decans, that Yew, the father of my father, came forth from the Right and bound them to a Fate-sphere. For there are twelve æons; over six Sabaoth, the Adamas, ruleth, and his brother Yabraōth ruleth over the other six. At that time then Yabraōth with his rulers had faith in the mysteries of the Light and was active in the mysteries of the Light and abandoned the mystery of congress. But Sabaoth, the Adamas, and his rulers have persisted in the practice of congress.

And when Yew, the father of my father, saw that Yabraōth had faith, he carried him and all the rulers who had had faith with him, took him unto himself out of the sphere and led him into a purified air in face of the light of the sun between the regions of those of the midst and between the regions of the invisible God. He posted him there with the rulers who had had faith in him. But he carried Sabaoth, the Adamas, and his rulers who had not been active in the mysteries of the Light, but have been persistently active in the mysteries of congress, and inbound them into the sphere. He bound eighteen-hundred rulers in every æon, and set three-hundred-and-sixty over them, and he set five other great rulers as lords over the three-hundred-and-sixty and over all the bound rulers, who in the whole world of mankind are called with these names: the first is called Kronos, the second Arēs, the third Hermēs, the fourth Aphroditē, the fifth Zeus.

Jesus continued and said: “Hearken then, that I may tell you their mystery. It came to pass then, when Yew had thus bound them, that he drew forth a power out of the Great Invisible and bound it to him who is called Kronos. And he drew another power out of Ipsantachounchaïnchoucheōch, who is one of the three triple-powered gods, and bound it to Arēs. And he drew a power out of Chaïnchōōōch, who also is one of the three triple-powered gods, and bound it to Hermēs. Again he drew a power out of the Pistis the Sophia daughter of Barbēlō and bound it to Aphroditē. And moreover he perceived that they needed a helm to steer the world and the æons of the sphere, so that they might not wreck it [the world] in their wickedness. He went into the Midst, drew forth a power out of the little Sabaoth, the Good, him of the Midst, and bound it to Zeus, because he is a good [regent], so that he may steer them in his goodness. And he set thus established the circling of his order, that he should spend thirteen [? three] months in every æon confirming [it], so that he may set free all the rulers over whom he cometh, from the evil of their wickedness. And he gave him two æons, which are in face of those of Hermēs, for his dwelling.”

The previous quote is very puzzling to me. I’m unsure at this point whether the Yabraoth mentioned is Yaldabaoth. I don’t believe so, because Yaldabaoth is also mentioned in the text. I also don’t know what to make of the statement that Sabaoth the Adamas was not ‘repentant’, but still practicing congress/sex. I don’t know how many Sabaoth’s there were, but one of the ancient texts shows two repentant Sabaoth’s, one being called ‘Little Sabaoth the Good’. Regardless, we see in Jesus words, “that he may set free all the rulers over whom he cometh from the evil of their wickedness.” What Jesus is saying here is that all the rulers in the end will be set free of their wickedness. That is only fair, as the rulers were just playing the roles they agreed to play in the great drama of God’s creation. The point I want to make here, is that in an ancient Gnostic Christian text, found in Nag Hammadi Egypt, hidden by Coptic Christians, a church founded by St. Mark of the Bible, we see Jesus speaking of Zeus, Aphrodite, Hermes, Ares and Kronos as ‘real’ beings, so real they have sex! So far as I know, myths have never had sex and bore children! I have created a table tying identities of various ‘mythological’ persons as they were known in the various countries. These are by no means necessarily accurate. Of the ‘forgiven’ gods I have the following alternate identities, but these are by no means accurate;

Kronos:

El – the Canaanite High God, according to the Phoenicians and Greeks.

Jacob-Israel – according to the historians Berossus & Sanchoniathon.

Logos – according to Oxford scholar Andrew Welburn

Jesus – according to ‘On the Origin of the World’ – (Jesus is Enoch).

Samael – according to the Jews. (another name for Yaldabaoth).

Saturn – according to the Jews.

Set – according to the Jews and Gnostics.

Azazel – according to the Jews and Laurence Gardner.

Devil – according to the Archontics.

Aphrodite: I didn’t try to find info on her.

I believe that Enki/Ea is Kronos and his son Ningishzidda is Little Sabaoth the Good. In the ancient texts Sabaoth was the first to repent. The text On the Origin of the World says that Sabaoth, the Lord of Forces, created seventy-two gods to rule over people and the Seraphim, Cherubim, Israel and Jesus.  What I believe took place was that at the time that Sabaoth was repentant and learned of the Infinite Spirit, he created the Seraphim, Cherubim, Israel and Jesus to counteract the machinations of the rest of his family – the Anunnaki.  Israel was created to be a race kept apart spiritually and physically from the rest of humanity, so as to keep a pure doctrine and a hereditary means of keeping it intact through the centuries. Jesus was meant to be the culmination of the Mysteries. At least he was the Way shower and now we get to participate in a mass ascension, which will further along the culmination process.  I believe Enki/Ea/Sabaoth to be righteous and at the same time the administrator of the justice and wrath of God. He is Captain of the Heavenly Host.

As you can see, there are a few overlapping identities in these. Make no mistake about it, our ancestors, even though some of them were very righteous, were Yaldabaoth’s rulers – the archons. They were both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ as everything in this world of duality is. Yeshua himself tells us that we were ‘dark’ as intended, in our past. In the Pistis Sophia text, Jesus said that the patriarch’s souls would be saved by sending them into bodies that would be righteous.

The key to understanding and accepting all this is to remember this: The highest beings of the Pleroma agreed to go to a lower realm where they knew they would become corrupted in order to allow God to experience separated consciousness. In these ‘fallen angels’ that’s what you’re seeing. The line of the biblical patriarchs was a line of angelic/humans. Abraham, Noah, and the rest were not in full control of their actions. They were under the command of the Anunnaki, and they served them with fear and humility. That’s why Jeshua guaranteed their souls would be saved – because they were righteous. We were angels given charge of the Earth. We have made grave mistakes in the past that have negatively affected the Earth and its people. However, we have done much good too. We have to remember too, that all along, the Logos and Holy Spirit, Mother-Father,  have been carefully shepherding this creation – which was an experiment.

From Wikipedia; “Myths in which Ea figures prominently have been found in Assurbanipal‘s library, and in the Hattusas archive in Hittite Anatolia. As Ea, Enki had a wide influence outside of Sumer, being equated with El (at Ugarit) and possibly Yah (at Ebla) in the Canaanite ‘ilhm pantheon, he is also found in Hurrian and Hittite mythology, as a god of contracts, and is particularly favourable to humankind. Amongst the Western Semites, it is thought that Ea was equated to the term *hyy (life) …Generally, however, Enki seems to be a reflection of pre-patriarchal times, in which relations between the sexes were characterised by a situation of greater gender equality. In his character, he prefers persuasion to conflict, which he seeks to avoid if possible.”

The ‘ilhm pantheon is another spelling of ‘elohim’. Interestingly, hyy (life) is a name for Eve, who in one ancient text was said to have brought ‘wisdom’ to Adam. Here we see it equated to Ea, a male, who as the Serpent of Wisdom brought knowledge to Adam and Eve.

The following is from the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society Volume XXII by J.F. Hewitt, M.R.A.S., written in the 1800’s. It reveals the identity of Jacob-Israel from the Bible with Ea, also spelled Ia, and Yah; “We thus see in Ia the god who, as Lenormant shows, descended, unchanged in name but with different functions, from the Akkadians to the Semitic Assyrians, and who also became the supreme god of the Greeks and Hindus. He was first the great snake, then the encircling ocean, afterwards the dark night, and then became the ruler of the stars, first as the goat-fish, and who afterwards, as the bull of heaven, ruled the lunar year. He was the great father, the creator of the year and all that it produces, and was finally the righteous god, the heavenly father and mother. It was on his name, that of Yah, translated in our version as the ‘name of the Lord,’ that men began to call in the days of Enoch, the son of Set, or Seth, the serpent-god of the Egyptians and Jews, and it was he who, in the flood story, as told in Genesis, is the Yah who destroyed the wicked race of serpent-worshippers, and brought in the new year, or era, of a new and holy life.

I have also from evidence taken from the Hindu Brahmanas, Rigvdeda and Mahabharata, shown that the first signs of a spiritual worship, as distinguished from that of the anthropomorphic gods, was shown in the deification of fire as the divine heat, and that fire-god was the supreme god before Ia, the water-god. But the whole series of evidence on which these deductions are founded is still further corroborated by the Babylonian account of the flood, as given in the great Epic of Izdhubar which had come down to the Babylonians from the Akkadians. This story tells how Anu the god of heaven, Bil the fire-god, Ninib the lord or lady of creation and En or In-nugi the leader of the gods, were sitting together and consulting upon the reformation of the Earth.

With them, but apparently apart, was Nin-igi-a-zag the first-born of the lord or lady (nin) of the race of heavenly spirits (igi-u) or of the spirits (i-gi) of water (a). This assembly was clearly that of the sacred pentad formed after the addition of the fire and water gods to the old triad. Thus, the triad here was Anu the heavenly abyss, Ninib the generative power ruling creation, and En-nugi the great serpent or the father; and with them among the older gods was the fire-god (Bil or Bil-gi). They were the gods of Earth, and were the Elohim or gods of the Elohistic account in Genesis. While the fifth god Ia belonged to the spirits of heaven. They determined to destroy the city of Surrippak, which Lenormant has identified with Ur, which thus gives the story a more realistic tinge than it had in its oldest mythic form for the destruction of Ur, the seat of the empire of Ur-Bagas, and that succeeding Telloh as the imperial capital, implied the triumph of a new race bringing in new gods.”

I don’t know what to make of the separation of Ia as a spirit of Heaven and the others as gods of the Earth. As far as I know, they are all Anunnaki/Nibiruans and Enlil and Ia/Ea are half-brothers. It could be that Ia is a god of Heaven because as Sabaoth he was repentant and installed as ruler in the seventh Heaven, while his unrepentant family were left in charge of the Earth and lower six heavens. In the Mesopotamian texts, the Anunnaki decided to send a flood because according to Enlil, the people were too noisy. In the ancient records, Ea was made to swear an oath not to warn the people of the coming flood. In order to go around their order, Ea whispers to the reed walls of ‘Noah’s’ house, not to Noah himself, thereby not breaking his oath. In the next paragraph, you will see that the heavenly spirits were called the Igi-gi. We saw them in an earlier post in connection with Atlantis and Ireland. J.F. Hewitt continues;

“Ia whispered the news of the deliberations of the gods to the reeds and the walls, who conveyed it to Atra-hasis  or Khasisatra and told him to build a ship. He consulted Ia whether he should tell the men of Surrippak. Ia told him to say to them; “As Bil (the fire-god) hates me, I will not remain any longer in his country, but will go to the ancient waters and live with Ia.” He accordingly built a ship and went away in it when the flood came, having as he said, ‘Left my house and all that was in it to Puzur-Bil, the fire-god.” In other words he forsook the worship of the god of fire and worshipped Ia as the supreme lord. When Atra-hasis was saved, and offered the sacrifice of expiation on Mount Nisir, Bil was with the other gods attracted by the sweet savour of the sacrifice, and when he found that Atrahasis, whom he hated, was saved, he was angry with the gods of Igi-gi (the heavenly spirits), but Ia interceded for Atra-hasis and procured his pardon.

This story fully corroborates the history of religious evolution I have taken from the Hindu sacred books and proves that the story of the flood in one of its later forms, which is that given in Genesis, gives the history of the religious reformation based by the substitution of the worship of the gods of Heaven for those of Earth. While the comparison of this with the Hindu story shows how Ia, the supreme god of the waters of heaven, became Manu the thinker. It also clearly connects the Ia of the Babylonian story with the Yah of the Jews, and this is further corroborated by the occurrence of the number seven in the Jehovistic version of the order given for the preservation of the animals according to which Noah was ordered seven of each clean species. This was the number sacred to Ia and became so through the addition of the days sacred to the fire-god and the water-god to the original sacred pentad. The comparison of the various stories also shows how the originally mythic actors have been gradually individualized by the infusion of the Aryan spirits. It is this spirit which, in the hands of the several recensionist’s of the Book of Genesis, who are now admitted by all Biblical commentators to have gradually and by successive stages formed the book now found in our Bibles, has turned a compendium of ancient religions and perhaps national history into a didactic story of the supposed destruction of the wicked people of a former age.

But to prove the working of this innovating spirit, and to show how the Turanian sacred story was altered by Aryan historiographers, I will now turn to the story of Jacob, the father of the Hebrew tribes. Jacob was the supplanter or successor of Esau, and as Dr. Robertson Smith shows, most scholars, from Scaliger downwards, have compared Esau with Uzaus, the god who taught men to clothe themselves with the skins of beasts taken in hunting, that is, with the skins of gazelles or mountain goats, and who was afterwards the Assyrian goat-god Uz, who was represented as clad in a robe of goat’s skin, the sacred dress of the Babylonian priests. This ancient reverence for gazelles has been already referred to in this essay in the account of the historical transformations of Ia, and is also noted in the song of David, taken from the book Jashur, and lamenting the death of Saul, where it said, ‘Thy gazelle, O Israel, is slain in the high places.’ Jacob, who supplanted Esau, clothed himself in goats skins and went to Haran, the city of the moon-god, where, as Dr. Sayce shows, the god of the foundation was Laban, the white one or the moon, that is to say, he became the goat-god who was first the god of generation and afterwards became sacred to the moon. He there married the two daughters of Laban, Leah, the wild cow, and Rachel, the lamb or ewe.

That is to say, he became first the moon-bull or Ia, and afterwards the solar ram. But he had also two other wives, Bilhah and Zilpah, and these wives may be again compared with the two wives of Azi-Dahaka, the snake-god of the Zendavesta, Savanghavach and Erinavach. Bilhah, compared by Delitzsch with old, is probably the Turanian val, the Sanskrit vala, and the Akkadian bel, meaning ‘the strong,’ and this interpretation is confirmed by the name of her son Dan, who evidently represents the widely-spread race of the Danava, Danus and Danai. This great Danite race is again reproduced in the name of the son of Dan, who, it must be noted, is the only one of the sons of Jacob who has only one son. This son is named in Gen xlvi 23 Hushim, which, as noted by Dr. Smith, is a plural form. But this name Hushim again appears in Numbers xxvi. 42 in another plural form Shuham, so that the two names mean the Hus and the Shus. These names again point to the Hus of the Zendavesta and their great king Husrava, the glory (srava) of Hus, who conquered Kangdesh or India, and avenged the murder of Syavarshan by the Turanians. They are also the same people as the Sus of the great province of Susiana, and the Saus or Sauvarna of India, who were the great trading race which united with the warlike tribes of the Sinha-bunsis, the sons of Sinha or Som (the moon) to extend the rule of the merchants of the Euphratean countries over the whole of the Gangetic valley.”

This author believes these are all myths but we see here evidence of historical battles and peoples whose descendants are still living today. Myths cannot become ‘widely-spread races’. We also see the merchants of the Euphrates, the Kushites who controlled the waterways, and the tribe of Dan – the sea-fairing Phoenicians who later became the settlers of ‘Danmark’, or as we westerners know it, Denmark. The Danes were the Viking descendants of the seagoing Phoenician tribe of Dan. We see that Jacob, Ia and Azi-Dahaka are equated as being the same man. We will get to Azi-Dahaka in a moment. To continue with the words of J.F. Hewitt:

“Zilpah again, who apparently represents Zillah, the wife of Lamech, and who is, in the Lamech myth, the mother of Tubal-Cain, the father of the metal-workers and worshippers of the fire-god, is identified with those people by her son Ashur. His descendants seem to be the Asura of the Hindus, and it is the tribe of Ashur who in the book of Joshua are assigned territory including that of Tyre. The chief god of Tyre was Melgarth, the Tyrian Hercules, or the god first of the phallic club and afterwards of the fire-stick. We see thus in the story of Jacob a reproduction of the transformations of Ia, in which he was first the god of the gazelle, afterwards of the goat and phallic god and then of the fire-god. In Leah the wild cow we find Ia again as the moon-god, and her tender eyes mentioned in Genesis 24:17 are explained by the three eyes of the wild bull of Telloh, she being the wild cow.

Rachel again, the ewe who carries off with her the phallic emblems or terraphim, is the mother of Benjamin, from whose tribe Saul was born. Saul again, in his earlier form, and before he was recorded as the first king of Israel, as Dr. Sayce shows, was the sun-god, the Sawul of the Babylonians, and the Saul of Rehoboth, kin of the Edomites; so that throughout the same historical idea has been preserved, and Ia, or Jacob with his four wives, is a complete reproduction of the Akkadian succession of religious beliefs as shown in the story of the flood and the other evidence I have adduced in this essay, with that set forth in Hindu religious history and in the Zendavesta.

….That this is the true or nearly the true account of the story of Jacob is shown to be probable by the inscriptions of Thothmes III of Egypt Quoted by Dr. Sayce, which mention among the cities he took in Palestine, more than two centuries before the time assigned to the Exodus by Egyptologists, Yakub-el, or Jacob the god, and Iseph-el, or Joseph the god, showing that they were both old gods of Palestine, who could never by old myth-makers have been spoken of as individuals. It was he who learnt the true name of God, the Yah, and put away strange gods.  …..In short, Jacob, or Yakov, seems to be the righteous god Ia, who succeeded the goat-god and the moon-god and who became the father of a holy people, who were appointed to work out the law of righteousness he taught. Of this law Iseph-el, or Joseph, the father of the Ephraimite’s, the first Semitic race ruling in Palestine, was the ‘Asipu,’ or interpreter.”

It’s confusing to me to try to recognize the Biblical patriarchs as ‘gods’ as they are not in the least portrayed so in the Bible. They are the ones who are doing the worshiping – they are not worshiped. Still, we see them mixed in with pantheons of ‘gods’. The ‘Asipu’ or ‘Ashipu’ were Serpents of Wisdom and priests. Again, the Semites are a real, not mythological race. We are Israel, that holy people. We are the ones appointed to work out the law of righteousness. I believe it was shortly before the Adamic human was created by Enki/Sabaoth that he was repentant and forgiven. He created Israel, and Judah was his ‘choice vine’. He is God of the Israelite’s. We also see that he is the literal, biological father of the Israelite’s, Jacob-Israel. I mentioned earlier our family’s propensity to sway from the worship of the One, with Abraham’s father Terah who worshiped the Anunnaki or Terraphim. It’s very important to realize that the Patriarchs, even though Adam had been taught the Mysteries in Eden, were under the control of Yaldabaoth and the rest of the Anunnaki  – their own family. Their Wisdom and Mystery teachings were something they may have had to do in private. I know these last several paragraphs have been confusing. This is a very confusing subject to try to sort out. The best I can do is point out this information, these correlations, and tell you that there is an association, even if I don’t completely understand it yet.

We learned earlier that the Anunnaki were serpent or bird featured, at least in their earlier images before they incarnated into true human form. It would not be strange then to see that some people were worshiping images of snakes or snake like people.  I know that Ea started the matriarchal worship. He was all about furthering human evolution and re-connecting humans with the spiritual world, something that the unrepentant side of our family is against. From what I have learned about the ‘good’ serpent worshipers, the serpent always represents the spiral form of the power of the Holy Spirit. What the wicked version of serpent worship entailed, I couldn’t say, but I can say that it was most likely the version practiced by the priests of Belial and the wicked priests in Egypt and all the wicked priests still at work today in the Vatican and Orthodox Jewish community. The wicked side has continuously countered everything the good side does, so you will find a corrupt version of most all of our family’s beliefs and symbols.

In the previous essay we learned something very important to our family story. That is, in speaking of Ia/Ea; “He was the great father, the creator of the year and all that it produces, and was finally the righteous god, the heavenly father and mother. It was on his name, that of Yah, translated in our version as the ‘name of the Lord,’ that men began to call in the days of Enoch, the son of Set, or Seth, the serpent-god of the Egyptians and Jews, and it was he who, in the flood story, as told in Genesis, is the Yah who destroyed the wicked race of serpent-worshippers, and brought in the new year, or era, of a new and holy life.” The author states that the name he is referring to is “translated in our version as the name of the Lord.” This is a very important clue because in the esoteric teachings of the Jews and Israelites the ‘Lord’ always refers to the Jewish/Israelite god, the god who chose them, not the highest God –  who we Light workers know as Source.

A few paragraphs back, we read the following; “That is to say, he became first the moon-bull or Ia, and afterwards the solar ram. But he had also two other wives, Bilhah and Zilpah, and these wives may be again compared with the two wives of Azi-Dahaka, the snake-god of the Zendavesta, Savanghavach and Erinavach.” What this author is saying here is that two of Jacob-Israel’s wives can be compared with this character Azi-Dahaka’s two wives in three different religious literatures.  We will see Azi-Dahaka in the following, so remember he is considered by this author to be Jacob-Israel or Ia/Ea.  I have spoken earlier of some people’s belief that Enki/Ea/Sabaoth is equated with Satan, who some believe is the ‘lower’ form of the Logos. From the book From the Ashes of Angels by Adnrew Collins comes the following;

“Also in Armenia are a number of prehistoric megaliths, or standing stones, that take the form of serpents which are known as vishaps, or dragons, showing the immense antiquity of this cult. More importantly, at least one Armenian scholar has associated this archaic worship of the vishap with the Sumero-Babylonian cult of the snake. The connection between Azhi Dahaka and the Median kings is also significant, for it was through their downfall that Zoroastrianism was able to climb so rapidly to the position of state religion in Persia. At the same time, many of Media’s Magian priests had jumped ship, so to speak and embraced this revitalized form of the Iranian religion, and it was probably at around this very period that Azhi Dahaka gained his exclusively demonic character among the Persian peoples. As a consequence, the final Median king somehow became the personification of the terrible Lie preached by the serpent-worshipping Magi priesthoods, as well as a national anti-hero in Persian myth and legend. In complete contrast, however was the way in which Azhi Dahaka had been viewed by many of the Kurdish tribes who were previously subject to the Median dynasty of kings. To them the demon king was the hero and Feridun the villain! So much had they revered the memory of Azhi Dahaka that they came to believe that their entire race was descended of him. …The Yaresan today seem blind to Sultan Sahaks true origins, and would vehemently deny any connection with his dark half, Azhi Dahaka.

This strange dichotomy in Yaresan beliefs is not speculative, but is accepted by Kurdish scholars such as Izady. Yet the influence of Sultan Sahak goes far beyond the Yaresan, and is apparently found in various guises through-out the Upper Zagros region. He is also known by the name Sultan Is’haq, or Isaac, the divine priest who features in the story about the Yezidi kochek named Beru, who visits heaven in order to request rain on behalf of the Kurdish peoples. So what was the true origin of Azhi Dahaka? Why was this dragon king accredited with being the progenitor of the Kurdish race? And why has his memory lingered so long? The answer appeared to lie in the fact that, before his fall, the tyrant was seen as one of the mythical kings of Iran. Since these monarchs would seem to have born distinctive Watcher traits, could it be that Azhi Dahaka represented a faint echo of the presence and blood lineage of the fallen race – remembered in Armenia as the vishaps or dragon descendants – who lived during some distant age of humanity?

It is to be recalled that, according to Dirdowski, one of Azhi Dahaka’s or Zahhak’s descendants had been the beautiful Rudabeh-the ivory-skinned princess whose face was a very paradise, whose skin from head to toe was as white as ivory, and whose height out topped her future husband Zal, himself a giant of a man, by a head. All these features were clear Watcher traits, like those presented in Enochian and Dead Sea Material. Remember too, that the Armenians actually claim descent from a race of giants under the leadership of Hayk, whose name is equated with the Armenian word for gigantic. Bringing together these two quite separate traditions is the fact that in a sub-text entitled ‘From the Fables of the Persians’, included by Moses of Khorenatsi in his History of the Armenians, the author says that Azhi Dahaka lived in the time of Nimrod and that he was one of the chieftains who seized local territories after the giants, or Titans, had divided the races following the destruction or fall, of the mythical Tower of Babel. Could this fall simply preserve yet another distorted memory of the fall of the Watchers, and their gradual dispersion onto the plains surrounding the highlands of Kurdistan?

The writings of Moses of Khorenatsi would appear to suggest that, not only had Tigran and his descendants believed themselves to be descendants of Azhi Dahaka but that they had also worshipped him in the form of an anthropomorphic serpent, similar in aspect to the Sumerian snake god Ningishzidda. If this was the case, then there seemed every reason to believe that the Armenian tyrant located Tigranakert in central Kurdistan because he wished to recreate Azhi Dahaka’s own seat of power. Since the Kurds traced their ancestry back to this serpent king, it would imply that the place of genesis of the Kurdish race – in other words, Azhi Dahaka’s kingdom – corresponded very well with the site of Eden, the place of genesis of the human race according to Hebrew tradition. If the descendants of the Watchers really had instigated the serpent dynasty of Iranian kings, then it seemed likely that Azhi Dahaka had come to symbolize the legacy of the Watchers in the minds of the Kurdish peoples.”

To recap and try to clarify; we have learned that Jacob-Israel of the Bible is Ia/Ea/Enki/Sabaoth/Yah, one of the Watchers, Nephilim, Anunnaki. Then we learned that Jacob-Israel’s father Isaac is none other than Sultan Is’haq, or Isaac, the divine priest who features in the story about the Yezidi kochek named Beru who visits heaven in order to request rain on behalf of the Kurdish peoples.  This is not stated, I just know it to be true. The kocheks were the same men who lived at the Dead Sea, i.e. the Essenes. They were a race of mystics, prophets, healers, rain-makers, etc. – Serpents of Wisdom. The description of John the Baptist living in the desert eating locusts describes their lifestyle. We also learned that Sultan Is’haq has an alter ego, Azhi Dahaka who is his ‘dark side’.

We also see in the preceding, that living tribes of people, not mythological people, who still to this day live almost exactly as their ancient ancestors did, say that they descend from this Sultan Isaac. We also see the Armenian people say that they descend from a race of giants. Are these indigenous people all ignorant or deluded? Or is the truth simply that they really are descended from a race of Watchers and Nephilim and Anunnaki who include the people of the Old Testament of the Bible? Then again, a quote from the author previous to this last one; “That is to say, he became first the moon-bull or Ia, and afterwards the solar ram. But he had also two other wives, Bilhah and Zilpah, and these wives may be again compared with the two wives of Azi-Dahaka, the snake-god of the Zendavesta, Savanghavach and Erinavach.”

We see here that the two previous quoted authors differ. One relates two of the wives of Azi-Dahaka, to Isaac, the other to his son Jacob-Israel. But what is important here is that one of them is said to have an evil alter ego. I say this because Ea is said by some to be Satan. Another interesting thing to note from Andrew Collins research is that two different sets of people have two completely different understandings of the same person. One sees Azi-Dahaka as good, the other as evil. To me, this could be representative of two groups of people, under different, competing rulers, having differing opinions about the same person.  In fact, it could be an instance of the ‘bad’, still unrepentant, side of the family ‘demonizing’ a member of the ‘good’ side of the family, making a ‘Satan’ out of him.
