Popular Anunnaki god put under house arrest for refusing to be part of great deception
On becoming Earth’s foremost Anunnaki god effectively in 2024 BC but substantively in 1954 BC, Marduk declared Nibiru as his celestial counterpart, not Earth itself as was the case with his predecessor Jehovah-Enlil. We have already dwelt on the reasons he did so. Not only did Marduk identify himself with the great planet: he decided, in due course, to make Nibiru the focus, exclusively, of a new religion he called the Star Religion. The “Star” was Nibiru: if you recall, Nibiru was also known as the Star of Jacob for reasons we have already spelt out.
Why did Marduk choose to place Nibiru at the centre of mankind’s religious fervour? Well, he had calculated, and rightly so, that the return of Nibiru was going to occur on his watch – the astrological Age of Aries, which mathematically ran from 2220 to 60 BC. The last time Nibiru showed up was circa 4000 BC, which enabled Anu to visit Earth. This time around, Nibiru was expected around the halfway point of the 6th century BC, between 600 and 500 BC.
What that meant was that when King Anu appeared, Marduk would be the one ruling Earth and would therefore be the primary host of the Solar System’s greatest sovereign. Needless to say, that would be the greatest milestone of his life. Of course it was not every time Nibiru was in the ecliptic that Anu visited Earth. But he was always expected anyway: elaborate and meticulous preparations for his arrival had to be made whether he turned up or not.
In Babylonia, the key person Marduk chose to propagate his Star Religion was Hammurabi, the Babylonian King. Hammurabi went at his brief hammer and tongs. In Marduk’s Star Religion, the astronomer priests, known as the MASHMASHU, worked practically day and night in the Esagil, Marduk’s temple-abode which was principally an astronomical observatory.
The Esagil’s main function was to “constantly observe the heavens, track the movement of stars and planets, record special phenomena (such as a planetary conjunction or an eclipse), and consider whether the heavens bespoke omens; and if so, to interpret what they did portend.” At the head of the Mashmashu was the URIGALLU, the Great Priest, who was a holy man, a magician, and a physician rolled into one. The Urigallu conveyed the astronomer-priests interpretations of celestial phenomena to Hammurabi through a special priest known as the ZAQIQU.
Marduk, however, had his mortal enemies to contend with – the Enlilites, who were not ready to cut him any slack whatsoever. THE ENLILITES JUST WOULD NOT COUNTENANCE THE IDEA OF KING ANU BEING RECEIVED BY AN ENKITE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. That scenario was simply inconceivable. It is small wonder, therefore, that they raised kings who were unstinting in making inroads into Babylon, the nucleus of the Babylonian empire, so as to unseat Marduk. In their pathologically jaundiced mindset, Marduk just could not do right: every peace feeler he sent, every concession he tabled forth in the interests of peaceful co-existence with the Enlilites, fell on stone deaf ears. This Earth, My Brother …
MARDUK’S TELL-TALE COMPOSITE EMBLEM
When Marduk became the Lord of Earth, he chose the MUS-HUS as his regnal emblem. The Mus-Hus has been described as a mythical, hybrid watery creature with “a scaly (fish-like) skin, hind legs resembling the talons of an eagle, feline (lion-like) forelegs, a long neck and tail, a horned head, a snake-like tongue, and a crest”. In Babylonian sketches, Marduk is more often than not depicted standing by the Mus-Hus.
Since no such creature existed in real life, in Egypt, Marduk’s other bastion, it was represented by the crocodile. It was with the fat of the crocodile, known in Egypt as the MESSEH, that pharaohs were anointed on their accession as King. The crocodile was a symbol of virility (because of its sexual prowess), vitality (it’s the largest reptile on the planet), and longevity (it is among the oldest creatures of Earth, having existed in its present form for more than 200 million years).
Why did Marduk chose a nondescript creature as his emblem? The answer lies in the kinds of animals that were represented in the Mus-Hus. They were a fish, lion, eagle, and snake. The fish was probably a tribute to his father Enki, who was also known as the fish god, Oannes in Greek, Dagon to the Philistines. The lion represented homage to Sirius, where his mother Damkina came from.
Sirians evolved from a creature that was part-wolf, part-lion, and part-reptile. The snake was obviously a bow to Orion, where Enki originated and whose people evolved from a serpentine creature. As for the eagle, it in all probability represented the Carian race, one of the four major races of the Milky Way galaxy, the others being Reptoids, Felines, and Humans. The Carians evolved from a bird-like creature. (Egyptian gods such as Horus and Ningishzidda were sometimes depicted as bird-headed gods, which suggests a Carian genetic link.)
In sum, the Mus-Hus was Marduk’s statement that he had a universal outlook leadershipwise which was not partisan to any single galactic race. He was prepared to work with all and sundry in the interests of the planet Earth and its peoples. Sadly, the Enlilites didn’t care an iota. To them, whether Marduk meant well or not, he would always be a marked man.
BABYLON’S GOLDEN GLOW COURTESY OF MARDUK!
In the Bible, the term Babylon just stops short of being a swear word. It is a symbol of evil and defiance, a symbol of rebellion against “God”. From Genesis to Revelation, Babylon is mentioned only in unflattering terms. In Revelation for one , it becomes a byword for the so-called Antichrist’s evil world system spearheaded by the Roman Empire. For instance, in REVELATION 17:5, Babylon, as code for the Roman Empire, is described as “the mother of prostitutes and of Earth’s abominations”. The prophets have a field day lambasting and prophesying doom for Babylon and its god, Marduk, often referred to as Bel.
But don’t be taken in folks. The Bible, more so the Old Testament, is an Enlite document. It was written by the Jews, Enlil’s chosen people, his sheep. As such, it’s bias against the Enkites is to be expected. FOR IF THE TRUTH MAY BE TOLD, MARDUK DID TURN BABYLON INTO A MINI-PARADISE.
Babylonian texts extol Marduk as wildly popular because “he is seen as a approachable deity, who cares about human beings and their suffering”. In Babylon, happiness and joy were ubiquitous. There was scarcely any lack. Everybody was in blooming health. Strangers hugged each other more than they snapped at or wronged each other. The following extract from the letter of a Phoenician who had visited Babylon speaks volumes on the glory and grandeur of Babylon:
“The civilising power of Marduk: see in the streets of the city a man and a maid. He shines before the people as a sun in splendor, she as the Moon keeps her face to her Lord. As they pass, old men seated in their doorways smile. Old women cease to scold and the soldiers do not jostle. See in the market as they move, ripples of smiles upon the face of the people spreading among the throngs. Such is the power of Marduk. SEE THAT GOLDEN GLOW THAT WRAPS THEM AS ONE THAT IS THE MARK OF HIS POWER. It is not the power of Ishtar (Inanna), much more fiery and passionate. Marduk’s power spreads peace in man.”
The above scenario clearly is not a picture of a city or nation steeped in sin, as the Bible would have you believe: it is the picture of absolute bliss. Perhaps the most telling statement in the letter is the one we have emphasized – about the golden glow that shone forth from the people. This was the result of consuming Ormus folks – the monoatomic powder of gold known as Manna in the Bible. Ormus imparts perfect health, sharp faculties, and staggering spiritual and metaphysical insights.
This is the ultimate empowerment of the human race. And when you have just partaken of it, it makes your body give off a glow that can be seen from a distance. You shine like “the noon day sun” folks. You are “transfigured” courtesy of the gospels. For mainstreaming Ormus in Canaan, Marduk had his most devout cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, nuked at the orders of Jehovah-Enlil. For mainstreaming Ormus in Babylon, he was to be overthrown by the same Enlilite forces. But it is not easy to unseat a popular leader: it took close to 1500 years to make him budge.
ISHKUR-ADAD IS MARDUK’S MAJOR FOE
In order to fight, tame, and ultimately topple Marduk, the Enlilites groomed two powerful warrior nations primarily. They were Assyria to the north of Babylon and Hatti to the west. It were the Assyrians in fact who were the first to attack Babylon circa 1900 BC and would be Babylon’s main antagonist for the next 1000 years or so.
Ethnically, the Babylonians and Assyrians were Akkadians. Both were Semitic: indeed, GENESIS 10 makes it clear that the Assyrians were descended from Shem. The only element that set them apart was the god each worshipped. The Babylonian god as we have stated and restated was Marduk. The Assyrian god was Ashur. Who was Ashur?
The term Ashur (ESH-HUR when fully rendered) means “Fiery Mountain”. We know a fiery mountain is known as a volcano. “Volcano” (Vulcan, the god of fire, to the Romans) was what the Sumerians called Ishkur-Adad, Enlil’s youngest son, owing to his fiery temper and generally ruthless disposition. Indeed, the name Ishkur (ESHA-KUR in full) also means “Fiery Mountain”. When Adad became the god of Assyria, he usurped the title Enlil as a dare against Marduk, who had become the new Enlil in 2024 BC, and even conferred the queenly title “Ninli” on his spouse. And not only that: he also appropriated the winged disc, the symbol of planet Nibiru, as his own, just as Marduk had done. In Adad’s case, the winged disc bore an image of he himself, often carrying a bow, a symbol of war.
Hatti was the land of the Hittites, who had burst forth from Anatolia in today’s Turkey. The Hittites would blossom into a major military power and close ranks with the coalition of Enlilite states who were opposed to Marduk. The non-Semitic Hittites enjoy repeated mention in the Bible but without the rancor and virulence reserved for other nations such as the Babylonians. They were Abraham’s neighbors in Harran, and it was from Hittite landowners in Hebron, south of Jerusalem, that he bought the Machpelah burial cave. Bathsheba, the centre of King David’s sexual scandal, was the wife of a Hittite captain in his army. It was from Hittite farmers David bought the platform for the Temple on Mount Moriah. King Solomon bought chariot horses from Hittite princes and married one of their daughters.
The national god of the Hittites was Teshub. This is TESH-HUBA in full, also meaning “Fiery Mountain”. In short, Teshub and Ashur were the same god. The Hittites both with fondness and dread referred to Adad as the Storm God – the God of Thunder and Lightning and hence the god of rain. But they may as well have been referring to his stormy temperament.
As Teshub, Adad’s signature symbols were a triple thunderbolt and a bull, upon which he was depicted standing to send the message that he was the new Bull of Heaven, the title by which his father Jehovah-Enlil had gone by in the Age of Taurus. Throughout Aries, it was Adad who was Marduk’s greatest nightmare and not Enlil, Ninurta, Nergal, or Inanna-Ishtar as was traditionally the case in the countdown to Aries.
MARDUK ASKED TO BE PART AND PARCEL OF NEW GOD CALLED ANKI
For 400 years or so, the Enlilites fell flat in their resolve to depose Marduk. Meanwhile, as the centuries wore on, the reappearance of Nibiru – and possibly the return of King Anu, “Our Father Who Art In Heaven” – loomed ever large and inevitably attention overall shifted to this all-important planet of the gods. All of a sudden, Marduk’s Star Religion, which centred on Nibiru, assumed a universal dimension.
The urgency with which the Enlilites now were seized was, IN WHOSE HANDS WOULD BE THE SPACE-RELATED SITES WHEN KING ANU TOUCHED DOWN ON EARTH? If you recall, space-related facilities were the ultimate symbol of Anunnaki power and pride. This was because they linked Earth to the mother planet, Nibiru. The other reason was that like any other space traveler, King Anu arrived on planet Earth via a spaceport. Thus whoever controlled the spaceport enjoyed enormous prestige in the eyes of the King.
For example, when Anu came to Earth the last time around circa 4000 BC, he was received by Enlil, who was Earth’s Chief Executive, and piloted by Utu-Shamash, the Sinai Peninsula spaceport’s Chief Aviation Officer. Thus the people who controlled the space-related infrastructure were the primary hosts of Anu.
As the possible return of King Anu became imminent, the Enlilites decided to take several measures before he actually pitched. First, they were to ensure that all the space-related sites were under their aegis. At the time, the space-related sites were Babylon (the Mission Control Centre), Baalbek (the Landing Place) in Lebanon, the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt, and the Nazca Desert in today’s Peru.
Since this was circa 1600 BC, the Enlilites already were in charge of the Nazca Landing Place and the Giza Pyramid (since they ruled northern Egypt, where the Great Pyramid was located). Baalbek, however, was not under their control: it was being vied for by both the Enlilites and the Enkites. Babylon was out of the question: the Enlilites would not want to dignify it with Mission Control Centre status when Anu arrived.
THEY WOULD RATHER RESTORE JERUSALEM, WHICH WAS THE MISSION CONTROL CENTRE BEFORE 2024 BC, SINCE IT WAS LOCATED IN A REGION THAT WAS NOT UNDER THE DIRECT INFLUENCE OF MARDUK. Accordingly, it was on Jerusalem and Lebanon they set their sights. Now, if they had to capture Jerusalem from the Jebusites, who presently inhabited it, they needed their own people, the Hykso Hebrews, who were based in northern Egypt, as foot soldiers. That, however, was a tall order. The Hyksos had been in Egypt since days immemorial and they were for all practical purposes Egyptians. How were they to be prevailed upon to depart Egypt and fight for some obscure territory in Canaan? It was hard but a way had to be found.
Finally, Marduk either had to be overthrown or tactfully won over to the Enlilite side so that by the time King Anu arrived, an Enlilite was the de facto CEO of Earth. It was this measure the Enlilites took first. Having failed to unseat him over 400 years of naked aggression to date, they opted for the carrot approach as opposed to the stick approach. They made overtures to him to the effect that they needed his cooperation to bring about monotheism on the planet Earth. The one advantage monotheism had was that it would certainly unite Earthlings under the banner of one god and therefore make wars between nations, which were essentially religious, a thing of the past.
When Marduk asked as to how this monotheism was to be achieved, he was told that all Enlite and Enkite gods were to retreat into the shadows and pose as just one god, who would be unseen by Earthlings though he would be heard. The Anunnaki gods would take turns to be this representative god. The Enlilites also proposed that the role of the first such composite god would be carried out by Ishkur-Adad, to be followed by Marduk himself after a period of time.
Adad was chosen under the pretext that he was best placed to keep in check all those nations who kept waging war on Babylon since they were mostly under his control. But Adad, being a representative god, would not go under his own name. HE WOULD GO BY A NEW NAME KNOWN AS ANKI, WHICH MEANT “GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH”. Would that be music to Marduk’s ears or as pure garbage?
MARDUK BECOMES THE DEVIL
Needless to say, Marduk was far from impressed. He read the scheme for exactly what it was – a cleverly contrived strategy to undermine him as Lord of Earth and to ultimately unseat him. Besides, the idea of a non-visible god did not appeal to him. Marduk loved his people, his dear Earthlings, and wanted to be seen by them, to interact with them in person. He was a man of the people. What was the point of claiming that you were a god of your people without allowing them to see you? Even the Earthlings themselves would pooh-pooh the idea.
Those days, mankind worshipped or revered a god they knew – one they had seen with their own eyes. Tell them you were their god but they could not set their eyes on you, and they would denounce you as a joke. It goes without saying that Marduk rejected the Enlilite bait with the contempt it deserved. Whether they liked it or not, he was Earth’s foremost authority and he would remain so till the close of the Age of Aries.
The Enlilites did not take the spurn lying down. In 1595 BC, Adad sprang his Hittite warriors on Babylon. Their siege of Babylon was so overwhelming it was like a walk in the park but only because Marduk had instructed his king not to fight them as he was aware it was not the seizure of Babylon they were after per se: it was the seizure of he himself. As such, he didn’t want the lives of the Babylonians to be unnecessarily expended.
Indeed, the Hittite army headed straight for his sacred precincts and seized him. But they did not harm him at all: all they did was take him with them to a Mesopotamian city known as Hana. He was to be kept there under house arrest and was given 24 years in which to change his mind and sign up to the Enlilites’ monotheistic ploy.
Meanwhile, the Enlilites launched propagandistic pitches denouncing Marduk as the “Devil”, meaning “Prime Evil”. Devil resulted from a twisting of the term D’EA-BEL in Sumerian (Diabolos in Latin). D’Ea-Bel was Enki’s title, conferred on him for his lead role in the creation of Adam and Eve. It meant “The (D) Lord (BEL) of Life (Ea)”. In the case of Enki, the Enlilites corrupted D’Ea-Bel to Devil when he unilaterally illumined Adam and Eve knowledgewise, which Enlil took to be a betrayal. In the case of Marduk, who D’Ea-Bel Jr in that he was Enki’s heir, the Enlilites adulterated D’Ea-Bel to Devil as a vilification manoeuvre arising from his refusal to toe their monotheistic line. This Earth My Brother …
The Central Bank has by way of its Monetary Policy Statement informed us that the Botswana economy is likely to contract by 8.9 percent over the course of the year 2020.
The IMF paints an even gloomier picture – a shrinkage of the order of 9.6 percent. That translates to just under $2 billion hived off from the overall economic yield given our average GDP of roughly $18 billion a year. In Pula terms, this is about P23 billion less goods and services produced in the country and you and I have a good guess as to what such a sum can do in terms of job creation and sustainability, boosting tax revenue, succouring both recurrent and development expenditure, and on the whole keeping our teeny-weeny economy in relatively good nick.
Joseph’s and Judah’s family lines conjoin to produce lineal seed
Just to recap, General Atiku, the Israelites were not headed for uncharted territory. The Promised Land teemed with Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. These nations were not simply going to cut and run when they saw columns of battle-ready Israelites approach: they were going to fight to the death.
Parliament has begun debates on three related Private Members Bills on the conditions of service of members of the Security Sector.
The Bills are Prisons (Amendment) Bill, 2019, Police (Amendment) Bill, 2019 and Botswana Defence Force (Amendment) Bill, 2019. The Bills seek to amend the three statutes so that officers are placed on full salaries when on interdictions or suspensions whilst facing disciplinary boards or courts of law.
In terms of the Public Service Act, 2008 which took effect in 2010, civil servants who are indicted are paid full salary and not a portion of their emolument. Section 35(3) of the Act specifically provides that “An employee’s salary shall not be withheld during the period of his or her suspension”.
However, when parliament reformed the public service law to allow civil servants to unionize, among other things, and extended the said protection of their salaries, the process was not completed. When the House conferred the benefit on civil servants, members of the disciplined forces were left out by not accordingly amending the laws regulating their employment.
The Bills stated above seeks to ask Parliament to also include members of the forces on the said benefit. It is unfair not to include soldiers or military officers, police officers and prison waders in the benefit. Paying an officer who is facing either external or internal charges full pay is in line with the notion of ei incumbit probation qui dicit, non qui negat or the presumption of innocence; that the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies.
The officers facing charges, either internal disciplinary or criminal charges before the courts, must be presumed innocent until proven otherwise. Paying them a portion of their salary is penalty and therefore arbitrary. Punishment by way of loss of income or anything should come as a result of a finding on the guilt by a competent court of law, tribunal or disciplinary board.
What was the rationale behind this reform in 2008 when the Public Service Act was adopted? First it was the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise.
The presumption of innocence is the legal principle that one is considered “innocent until proven guilty”. In terms of the constitution and other laws of Botswana, the presumption of innocence is a legal right of the accused in a criminal trial, and it is an international human right under the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 11.
Withholding a civil servant’s salary because they are accused of an internal disciplinary offense or a criminal offense in the courts of law, was seen as punishment before a decision by a tribunal, disciplinary board or a court of law actually finds someone culpable. Parliament in its wisdom decided that no one deserves this premature punishment.
Secondly, it was considered that people’s lives got destroyed by withholding of financial benefits during internal or judicial trials. Protection of wages is very important for any worker. Workers commit their salaries, they pay mortgages, car loans, insurances, schools fees for children and other things. When public servants were experiencing salary cuts because of interdictions, they lost their homes, cars and their children’s future.
They plummeted into instant destitution. People lost their livelihoods. Families crumbled. What was disheartening was that in many cases, these workers are ultimately exonerated by the courts or disciplinary tribunals. When they are cleared, the harm suffered is usually irreparable. Even if one is reimbursed all their dues, it is difficult to almost impossible to get one’s life back to normal.
There is a reasoning that members of the security sector should be held to very high standards of discipline and moral compass. This is true. However, other more senior public servants such as judges, permanent secretary to the President and ministers have faced suspensions, interdictions and or criminal charges in the courts but were placed on full salaries.
The yardstick against which security sector officers are held cannot be higher than the aforementioned public officials. It just wouldn’t make sense. They are in charge of the security and operate in a very sensitive area, but cannot in anyway be held to higher standards that prosecutors, magistrates, judges, ministers and even senior officials such as permanent secretaries.
Moreover, jail guards, police officers and soldiers, have unique harsh punishments which deter many of them from committing misdemeanors and serious crimes. So, the argument that if the suspension or interdiction with full pay is introduced it would open floodgates of lawlessness is illogical.
Security Sector members work in very difficult conditions. Sometimes this drives them into depression and other emotional conditions. The truth is that many seldom receive proper and adequate counseling or such related therapies. They see horrifying scenes whilst on duty. Jail guards double as hangmen/women.
Detectives attend to autopsies on cases they are dealing with. Traffic police officers are usually the first at accident scenes. Soldiers fight and kill poachers. In all these cases, their minds are troubled. They are human. These conditions also play a part in their behaviors. They are actually more deserving to be paid full salaries when they’re facing allegations of misconduct.
To withhold up to 50 percent of the police, prison workers and the military officers’ salaries during their interdiction or suspensions from work is punitive, insensitive and prejudicial as we do not do the same for other employees employed by the government.
The rest enjoy their full salaries when they are at home and it is for a good reason as no one should be made to suffer before being found blameworthy. The ruling party seems to have taken a position to negate the Bills and the collective opposition argue in the affirmative. The debate have just began and will continue next week Thursday, a day designated for Private Bills.
