The story of the Burning Bush (Moses’ encounter with “God” through a thicket engulfed in a non-consuming fire at Mount Horeb in the Sinai Peninsula) is at once misrepresented in the Bible and misunderstood by the broader readership. As I keep reiterating much of the time, the reason we do not understand the world in which we live is because we lack the requisite knowledge. We perish for lack of knowledge (HOSEA 4:6).
What really transpired at Mount Horeb? This was what transpired: MOSES WAS INITIATED INTO THE OCCULT BY HIS GODS! Moses, it turns out, never was Holy Moses: he was actually Holly Moses. (Hel-wood, Holly wood in modern spelling, or simply Holly, was the source of magic wands used by ancient occultists such as the Druids. Thus we have the famous Hollywood in California, the Illuminati’s mass propaganda and conditioning machine.) At age 80, Moses became a sorcerer – somebody who could perform seemingly unnatural feats we typically call magic or wonders but which anybody can do for as long as they have been made privy to certain metaphysical secrets.
Wonders can be either positive or negative, destructive or constructive. When a wonder entails evil, such as witchcraft, it is typically called magic or sorcery. When it mesmerizes and astonishes because it has brought about a dramatically beneficial result, such as healing a naturally incurable disease, it is called a miracle.
Genuine miracles, like those Jesus is said to have performed, are not easy to come by. This is because to achieve them, you ought to have a pure heart. In other words, you have to be very close to First Source, the real God, in terms of how you conduct yourself in your pilgrimage in life. A ubiquitous fact of life, however, is that people who for one reason or the other want to perform wonders are motivated by fundamentally selfish ends.
They want the wonder to accomplish their own wish first and foremost and not advantage a person in critical need. A self-centred wonder, or one intended to inflict harm on other people, is ungodly. As such, the ability to perform such a wonder can only be enabled by “mighty” forces who themselves are ungodly. We call these demons or devils, who are actually interdimensional Reptilians.
However, Reptilians do not confer magical abilities (which includes transforming one’s life into a fabulously wealthy or geopolitically influential person) free of charge. You have to pay for them somehow. You do this by selling your soul to them, so that you are now owned by them both as a physical and spirit being. In other words, they rule you and they can demand that you do anything for them without asking them questions.
And what they demand you do for them from time to time is always diabolical – killing people (mostly as a sacrifice to demonic powers), bewitching people, harming people, cursing people, violating people (such as having sexual relations with females of all ages against their will), committing acts of sexual perversion (such as sodomy or bestiality), cannibalising people, manipulating the minds of the masses, especially the youth, so that they engage in rebellious and unruly conduct (e.g. through messages subtly embedded in musical lyrics or directly by way of what is called mind control), etc.
In the case of Moses, he was initiated into sorcery by his Anunnaki god Ishkur-Adad. The Enlilites, as we have long underscored, worked (and continues to work) in cahoots with Reptilian forces who overshadow them. It explains why most of them, more so Enlil-Jehovah, Ninurta, Ishkur-Adad, and Inanna-Ishtar were so incomprehendably harsh and cruel. Why did Moses agree to be initiated into sorcery? BECAUSE HE WANTED TO BE THE KING OF CANAAN. The Enlilites offered him that sort of glory for as long as he sold his soul to the Devil.
Very few people are aware that Moses was one of the greatest witches who ever lived, only second to King Solomon. The Roman historian Pliny describes Moses as the founder of a 'sect of magic', in reference to Judaism. Today, Judaism is called a religion, but that was not how it began: it started as an occultic secret society headed by Moses. If you ask any seasoned Satanist, they will tell you that the standard witchcraft manual is THE SIXTH AND SEVENTH BOOK OF MOSES. And the broadest extant collection of Jewish magical recipes from the first millennium is titled THE SWORD OF MOSES. Both these works are said to have been authored by Moses.
The authors of the Pentateuch were very much aware that Moses was very adept at magic. They give several hints, such as his brother Aaron turning a staff into a snake that swallowed the snakes of Egyptian magicians at the scene of Moses’ showdown with Ramesses. Of course the incident in truth had nothing magical about it as we showcased last week, but their spinning it as involving magic does underscore their recognition of the fact that Moses indeed was a sorcerer.
SCENE OF BURNING BUSH WAS A SATANIC RITUAL
The impression the Bible gives us is that Moses was taken unawares when he was summoned to the scene of the Burning Bush. That simply is not true. Moses was being initiated into the occult that day and he was thoroughly prepared for the ritual. How do we know that he was attending a satanic initiation ritual?
At every satanic initiation ritual, there is fire or some form of light, a demonic manifestation, and at least one other person, usually called priest if he is a man or priestess if it is a woman, who initiates the initiatee. In the case of Moses, his initiation priest was his own father-in-law Jethro. The Bible says Jethro was the High Priest of his territory Midian but it does not specify as to whether he was a religious priest or an occultic priest. Circumstantial evidence suggests that Jethro was an occultic High Priest and so he was the one who initiated Moses.
The burning thicket which was not being consumed by the fire is pure embroidery on the part of the Pentateuch writers. The thicket was actually literally burning. And the thicket was the BOSWELIA PLANT, which indeed thrives in the Sinai Peninsula. Boswelia, also known as the Frankincense Tree, is a plant or tree from which incense is made. Burning incense is a standard feature at every satanic initiation ceremony. It seems at a metaphysical level, Boswelia has properties conducive to demonic inducement, which explains why one always encounters a continuous smell of incense in every witch doctor’s cubicle.
In the Bible, the burning bush is described as a “thornbush”. That is code for the nature of the Reptilian force in whose honour the proceedings at the scene were being conducted. Indeed, the term thorn in the Bible is a metaphor for the Devil and his demonic host. Paul, for example, says he was given a “thorn in my flesh“ to torment him. He describes this thorn as “a messenger of Satan” (2 CORINTHIANS 12:7-9).
At a Satanic initiation ceremony, there is always light of some kind. The light is symbolic of the Devil, also known as Lucifer. Lucifer, a very beautiful name, has sadly been appropriated by the Devil. Lucifer means “light bringer”, or “Illuminator”. Thus the light at every initiation scene is in deference to the Master Reptilian, the Devil himself. The necessity of the burning bush in the case of Moses was in order to signal the shadowy presence of Lucifer at the scene. Again, in every witch doctor’s cubicle, you will always find a candle burning as a tribute to Lucifer, who as the apostle Paul said in his second letter to the church at Corinth in today’s Greece masquerades as “an angel of light”, 2 CORINTHIANS 11:14.
Often, especially if you are being initiated at a very high level in the Satanic hierarchy, a demon manifests amid crackling flames of fire. (The Gnostics, the first century metaphysical philosophers, wrote that the archons – their name for Reptilians – were made from “luminous fire”.) That indeed happened at the scene of the burning bush although the demon has been spun as an angel of God. This is what EXODUS 3:2 says in part: “Then the messenger of Yahweh appeared to him in a blaze of fire from the midst of a thornbush.”
In other words, a demon, a “messenger of Satan” courtesy of Paul, leaped out of the fire. This demon was to be Moses’ ruling demon. It was to reside in Moses’ body and endue him with all the magical powers he wished to wield. At the same time, the demon was to punish him in one way or the other if he appeared to renege on his undertaking to the Devil.
Further evidence that the scene of the burning bush had demonic connotations is that Moses was asked to take off his sandals because the ground on which he stood was “holy” (EXODUS 3:5). Again, when you ask anybody who has participated in a satanic ritual, they will tell you that everybody present has to be barefoot. And if you ask anybody who has been to a witch doctor’s cubicle, they will tell you they are required to take off their shoes before they make their entry.
ADAD INTRODUCES HIMSELF AS ANKI
Once the ceremony was complete, Moses acknowledged its meaning and implications and prepared to depart. He had hardly made the first step when he heard a most regal voice boom out of the still burning thicket. The voice was actually coming from a very tiny, sophisticated speaker embedded somewhere in the walls of the cave. THE VOICE BELONGED TO THE ANUNNAKI GOD ISHKUR-ADAD. It said: “I am the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac and the Elohim of Jacob,” EXODUS 3:6.
In the English version of the Bible, the term “God” is used instead of Elohim. That is grossly misleading. Elohim is a plural term. It was the term by which the Anunnaki ruling pantheon were addressed as a collective. Even Mount Horeb itself is alternatively referred to as “the Mountain of the Elohim” in the Hebrew version of the Old Testament which is very apt: for it was in the vicinities of that mountain that Nannar-Sin (who would become the Allah of Islam) and Ninmah were housed.
So what Adad was saying to Moses was that he was addressing him as a representative of the Enlilite gods, the same gods his leading ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had venerated. Remember, the Enlilites had decided on a sham monotheism, whereby they appeared to mankind as a single god when in actual fact there were several of them behind the scenes. The idea was to minimise the rivalry among themselves as they had always competed for a human following despite being members of the same clan.
Now, as an Egyptian royal and a learned one for that matter, Moses knew who the Elohim were. But he was familiar with the Enkites only, notably Marduk, who was the national god of Egypt. He had never had a single personal encounter with the Enlilites before, who were reputed as inimical to the Enkites. If you were to go by the English version of the Old Testament, you would get away with the impression that Adad did not directly state his name, or rather, the name by which he chose to present himself to Moses.
That is unfortunate. It is a pity that even scholars with chains of theology degrees to their necks have bought into this bunkum. ADAD DID ACTUALLY INTRODUCE HIMSELF TO MOSES. IN EXODUS 3:6, THE SCRIPTURE QUOTED ABOVE, THE HEBREW TERM TRANSLATED “I” IS “ANKI”. The term Anki stemmed from the Sumerian term which meant “Heaven-Earth”, or to paraphrase, “God of Heaven and Earth”. This was the name by which the Enlilites had decided to go by.
When a lie has been repeated time and again, it assumes the status of a fact. We have all along been of the belief that the god of Moses gave him a silly, dodgy name which effectively meant “mind your own business” when he actually did pronounce forth his composite titular name. This Earth, My Brother …
MOSES COMMISSIONED TO WRENCH HIS PEOPLE FROM THE EGYPTIAN YOKE
The Burning Bush incident doubled as an initiation on the one hand and a commissioning on the other. The Enlilites had decided to designate Moses as the new King of the Hykso-Hebrews and to appoint him to the rather daunting task of prying them loose from Egyptian bondage, whereupon he would lead them to Canaan. That was the message Adad conveyed to Moses.
In order for the idea of liberation to appeal to the Hykso-Hebrews, Canaan was to be touted to them as a kind of Utopia, “the land of milk and honey”. Presently, Canaan was dominated by peoples who did not have the legal right to inhabit the territory. These were the Canaanites (the descendants of Canaan, Noah’s grandson through Ham, originally from Egypt), the Hittites (originally from Turkey and the northern parts of Syria); the Amorites (descendants of the fourth son of Canaan and therefore originally from Egypt, though at the time they also abounded in Mediterranean Europe); the Perizzites (a rural-dwelling people whose specific nationality is not known), the Girgashites (descendants of the fifth son of Canaan and therefore originally Egyptians), the Hivites (descendants of Canaan and therefore originally Egyptians), and the Jebusites (descendants of Jebus, a descendant of Canaan and therefore originally Egyptians). Adad described these seven nations as “greater and mightier” than the Israelites.
During the partition of the known world not long after the Great Flood of Noah’s day, the land that would in future be known as Canaan was allotted to the tribe of Shem, the progenitor of the Semites, a bracket that is predominantly Hebrew. But circa 8970 BC, Set, one of Marduk’s sons, seized Canaan after tactfully populating it with his followers, the offspring of Canaan, and the Shemites/Hebrews scattered to other lands beyond Canaan, including Egypt itself, where they ended up as slaves.
The Enlilites had decided that the Hebrews who were in bondage in Egypt should return to Canaan, their rightful land. What that entailed was that all the Canaanite nations who presently inhabited Canaan had to return to Egypt, their legally allotted land. Of course the Canaanites, having lived in Canaan for more than 7000 years, would not simply pack up and go: they would put up a real fight.
The only way the Hebrew/Hyksos would get them to budge was by means of war. It was because of the certainty of warfare that the Enlilites chose Moses, a decorated military general, to lead the Hykso-Hebrews out of Egypt and into Canaan. The promise to hand over Canaan to the Hebrews was first made to Abraham about 700 years prior, the reason Canaan was also known as the Promised Land.
Moses accepted his commissioning but only reluctantly so, perhaps because at 80 he was too old to stand up to the rigours of a long and protracted armed conflict. In any case, he had been to Egypt the previous year and Pharaoh Ramesses had stoutly refused to release the Hebrews. So how was he going to succeed to force the hand of Ramesses this time around?
TELL THEM, “EHYEH ASHER EHYEH HAS SENT ME”
According to the biblical book of Exodus, Moses fumbled for every excuse in the book to avoid returning to Egypt. The main excuse he proffered was that he was not an eloquent speaker, probably because he was a stammerer or stutterer. That, however, does not square with Stephen’s description of him in the book of Acts. In ACTS 7:22, this is what Stephen, a deacon of the early church, says: “Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds." In other words, Moses was a rousing speaker, which fits with his characterisation of him by the legendary Jewish historian Flavius Josephus as a man who oozed surpassing intelligence, which is best articulated through the gift of the gab.
If Moses was a mesmerising orator, why do the authors of Exodus portray him as a bumbling speaker? The reason is very simple: THEY WANTED TO FIND AN EXCUSE TO BRING AARON INTO THE MIX. Remember, the person who performed the “miracles” of the snake and the hand before Ramesses was Aaron according to Exodus but we know that is not true: it was Moses because that was what he had to do challenge Ramesses for the pharaonic throne. The authors of Exodus, however, didn’t want Moses to be the one to perform these acts because then it would have been obvious to informed readers that he was an ex-pharaoh. So to keep this hint from the readers, Moses was cleverly substituted for Aaron.
In a nutshell therefore, Adad never instructed that Moses go with Aaron to Egypt (though he went with him anyway): those words were put in Adad’s mouth by the writers of Exodus. And there was nothing amiss with Moses’ way of speaking. Maybe his pronunciation of words was not that crisp since he was 80 years of age but Aaron was older than him by three years; so he could not have been a more audible speaker than Moses.
Moses, who was naturally a very argumentative person like most intelligent people are, asked Adad as to how he would convince his people, the Hebrew-Hyksos, that he had indeed been sent by their true god. Adad said that was not a problem: Moses had already been initiated into the dark arts and so he would be capable of performing certain wonders.
Then came perhaps the most pertinent question. If his people asked him what the name of their god was, what would he tell them? Moses had already been told that he was talking to the god Anki. But the Hebrews did not refer to their god by his real name: that was sacrilege. SO WHAT MOSES WAS ASKING FOR WAS A SECONDARY FRAME OF REFERENCE TO SUBSTITUTE FOR ANKI, WHICH HIS PEOPLE WOULD USE IN THEIR DAILY PARLANCE.
Responding to Moses’ question, Adad said, “Tell them EHYEH ASHER EHYEH has sent me”. What did Adad mean by this most enigmatic statement that has baffled many a scholar and whose common interpretation is actually flawed? Don’t you worry: we will unpack it for you.
Seventy-seven years ago, on the evening of December 2, 1943, the Germans launched a surprise air raid on allied shipping in the Italian port of Bari, which was then the key supply centre for the British 8th army’s advance in Italy.
The attack was spearheaded by 105 Junkers JU88 bombers under the overall command of the infamous Air Marshal Wolfram von Richthofen (who had initially achieved international notoriety during the Spanish Civil War for his aerial bombardment of Guernica). In a little over an hour the German aircraft succeeded in sinking 28 transport and cargo ships, while further inflicting massive damage to the harbour’s facilities, resulting in the port being effectively put out of action for two months.
Over two thousand ground personnel were killed during the raid, with the release of a secret supply of mustard gas aboard one of the destroyed ships contributing to the death toll, as well as subsequent military and civilian casualties. The extent of the later is a controversy due to the fact that the American and British governments subsequently covered up the presence of the gas for decades.
At least five Batswana were killed and seven critically wounded during the raid, with one of the wounded being miraculously rescued floating unconscious out to sea with a head wound. He had been given up for dead when he returned to his unit fourteen days later. The fatalities and casualties all occurred when the enemy hit an ammunition ship adjacent to where 24 Batswana members of the African Pioneer Corps (APC) 1979 Smoke Company where posted.
Thereafter, the dozen surviving members of the unit distinguished themselves for their efficiency in putting up and maintaining smokescreens in their sector, which was credited with saving additional shipping. For his personal heroism in rallying his men following the initial explosions Company Corporal Chitu Bakombi was awarded the British Empire Medal, while his superior officer, Lieutenant N.F. Moor was later given an M.B.E.
Remember: bricks and cement are used to build a house, but mutual love, respect and companionship are used to build a HOME. And amongst His signs is this: He creates for you mates out of your own kind, so that you may find contentment (Sukoon) with them, and He engenders love and tenderness between you; in this behold, there are signs (messages) indeed for people who reflect and think (Quran 30:21).
This verse talks about contentment; this implies companionship, of their being together, sharing together, supporting one another and creating a home of peace. This verse also talks about love between them; this love is both physical and emotional. For love to exist it must be built on the foundation of a mutually supportive relationship guided by respect and tenderness. As the Quran says; ‘they are like garments for you, and you are garments for them (Quran 2:187)’. That means spouses should provide each other with comfort, intimacy and protection just as clothing protects, warms and dignifies the body.
In Islam marriage is considered an ‘ibaadah’, (an act of pleasing Allah) because it is about a commitment made to each other, that is built on mutual love, interdependence, integrity, trust, respect, companionship and harmony towards each other. It is about building of a home on an Islamic foundation in which peace and tranquillity reigns wherein your offspring are raised in an atmosphere conducive to a moral and upright upbringing so that when we all stand before Him (Allah) on that Promised Day, He will be pleased with them all.
Most marriages start out with great hopes and rosy dreams; spouses are truly committed to making their marriages work. However, as the pressures of life mount, many marriages change over time and it is quite common for some of them to run into problems and start to flounder as the reality of living with a spouse that does not meet with one’s pre-conceived ‘expectations’. However, with hard work and dedication, couples can keep their marriages strong and enjoyable. How is it done? What does it take to create a long-lasting, satisfying marriage?
Below are some of the points that have been taken from a marriage guidance article I read recently and adapted for this purposes.
POSITIVITY Spouses should have far more positive than negative interactions. If there is too much negativity — criticizing, demanding, name-calling, holding grudges, etc. — the relationship will suffer. However, if there is never any negativity, it probably means that frustrations and grievances are not getting ‘air time’ and unresolved tension is accumulating inside one or both partners waiting to ‘explode’ one day.
“Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames.” (49:11)
We all have our individual faults though we may not see them nor want to admit to them but we will easily identify them in others. The key is balance between the two extremes and being supportive of one another. To foster positivity in a marriage that help make them stable and happy, being affectionate, truly listening to each other, taking joy in each other’s achievements and being playful are just a few examples of positive interactions. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best character and the best of you are those who are best to their wives”
Another characteristic of happy marriages is empathy; understanding your spouses’ perspective by putting oneself in his or her shoes. By showing that understanding and identifying with your spouse is important for relationship satisfaction. Spouses are more likely to feel good about their marriage and if their partner expresses empathy towards them. Husbands and wives are more content in their relationships when they feel that their partners understand their thoughts and feelings.
Successful married couples grow with each other; it simply isn’t wise to put any person in charge of your happiness. You must be happy with yourself before anyone else can be. You are responsible for your actions, your attitudes and your happiness. Your spouse just enhances those things in your life. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.”
Successful marriages involve both spouses’ commitment to the relationship. The married couple should learn the art of compromise and this usually takes years. The largest parts of compromise are openness to the other’s point of view and good communication when differences arise.
When two people are truly dedicated to making their marriage work, despite the unavoidable challenges and obstacles that come, they are much more likely to have a relationship that lasts. Husbands and wives who only focus on themselves and their own desires are not as likely to find joy and satisfaction in their relationships.
Another basic need in a relationship is each partner wants to feel valued and respected. When people feel that their spouses truly accept them for who they are, they are usually more secure and confident in their relationships. Often, there is conflict in marriage because partners cannot accept the individual preferences of their spouses and try to demand change from one another. When one person tries to force change from another, he or she is usually met with resistance.
However, change is much more likely to occur when spouses respect differences and accept each other unconditionally. Basic acceptance is vital to a happy marriage. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “It is the generous (in character) who is good to women, and it is the wicked who insults them.” “Overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.” (Quran 15:85)
COMPASSION, MUTUAL LOVE AND RESPECT
Other important components of successful marriages are love, compassion and respect for each other. The fact is, as time passes and life becomes increasingly complicated, the marriage is often stressed and suffers as a result. A happy and successful marriage is based on equality. When one or the other dominates strongly, intimacy is replaced by fear of displeasing.
It is all too easy for spouses to lose touch with each other and neglect the love and romance that once came so easily. It is vital that husbands and wives continue to cultivate love and respect for each other throughout their lives. If they do, it is highly likely that their relationships will remain happy and satisfying. Move beyond the fantasy and unrealistic expectations and realize that marriage is about making a conscious choice to love and care for your spouse-even when you do not feel like it.
Seldom can one love someone for whom we have no respect. This also means that we have to learn to overlook and forgive the mistakes of one’s partner. In other words write the good about your partner in stone and the bad in dust, so that when the wind comes it blows away the bad and only the good remains.
Paramount of all, marriage must be based on the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the teachings and guidance of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To grow spiritually in your marriage requires that you learn to be less selfish and more loving, even during times of conflict. A marriage needs love, support, tolerance, honesty, respect, humility, realistic expectations and a sense of humour to be successful.
The past week or two has been a mixed grill of briefs in so far as the national employment picture is concerned. BDC just injected a further P64 million in Kromberg & Schubert, the automotive cable manufacturer and exporter, to help keep it afloat in the face of the COVID-19-engendered global economic apocalypse. The financial lifeline, which follows an earlier P36 million way back in 2017, hopefully guarantees the jobs of 2500, maybe for another year or two.
It was also reported that a bulb manufacturing company, which is two years old and is youth-led, is making waves in Selibe Phikwe. Called Bulb Word, it is the only bulb manufacturing operation in Botswana and employs 60 people. The figure is not insignificant in a town that had 5000 jobs offloaded in one fell swoop when BCL closed shop in 2016 under seemingly contrived circumstances, so that as I write, two or three buyers have submitted bids to acquire and exhume it from its stage-managed grave.
