    Dorothy Leon writes..

    So, lest you judge Jehovah too harshly as you read Part Four about Moses, ask yourself if the Hebrew slaves, who had just emerged from Egypt, were of a state of consciousness to merge with the Unseen Father God in deep meditation? Or were they, as the Old Testament says, an unruly, "stiff-necked, froward people in whom there is no faith" that could only be dealt with by a tough cookie like Jehovah? Look at what they did to Jesus hundreds of years later and what they are still doing to the Palestinians! Now please understand that I am not picking on the Jewish people; I have a great respect for them and have many wonderful Jewish friends. I am speaking of mankind in general. Were any of the nations ready for a deep inner mysticism three or four thousand years ago? Look how they distorted the divine teachings of Osiris, Seth, Melchizedek and Akhenaten. Are many of us ready for it today?

    Don't let the following details about the violent, jealous tribal "god," Jehovah, as depicted in the Old Testament, turn you against the Ultimate Divine Source, the Unseen God of love, mercy and peace. Instead of throwing out the baby with the bath water, remember that Jehovah was only a tribal "god" of that particular area. According to ancient writings and countless legends of mythology, the "gods" of the surrounding areas were equally vicious and emotionally unstable. Perhaps the writers in those primitive times exaggerated these traits; using fear in an effort to assure obedience. Perhaps they merely described them from their own paradigm perspectives. Or perhaps these "gods" had to be vicious in order to deal with unevolved mankind.

    When Moses expressed a fear that the Pharaoh would not listen to him, and that the Hebrews would not accept him as their leader, since he had grown up with the Egyptians, Jehovah empowered his shepherd's staff with magical qualities to make Moses appear as "a 'god'. But even after being promised two more feats of magic, and being assured that Jehovah would "stretch out his hand and smite the Egyptians with all his wonders
    [technology]," Moses, due to his speech impediment, and knowing that the Egyptian priests could also perform magic, was still reluctant to accept the difficult assignment. This enraged Jehovah, but after calming himself, he suggested that Moses ask his brother Aaron to act as his spokesman. Filled with faith, Moses and his family journeyed toward Egypt, but Jehovah sought to kill him because he had not circumcised his son. His wife saved the day by grabbing a "sharp stone" and "cutting" the child.

    After a series of nine horrible "plagues," brought about by Jehovah, the Pharaoh was willing to let the Hebrews go, providing their herds and flocks remained, but Moses, well instructed by Jehovah, answered: "Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offering that we make sacrifice unto the Lord our God. Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind." Jehovah and his "host" of astronauts were not about to relinquish the animals; their potential barbecues!

    As they were preparing to leave, Jehovah "gave them favor in the sight of the Egyptians," so they would give them the gold, silver, jewels and raiment. Jehovah guided them "out of Rameses by the way of the Red Sea," so they would not see the warring Philistines, a non-Semitic race of giants, lest they become fearful and return to Egypt. He guided them by day in a "pillar of a cloud" and by night in a "pillar of fire [spacecraft]

    All was going well for the group until Jehovah once again "hardened Pharaoh's heart to follow them," thereby allowing him one last opportunity to demonstrate his power and to receive "honor" amongst the Egyptians. The Bible says it was for this reason that Jehovah had "raised up" Moses.(Throughout the Bible, the term "raised up" seems to refer to reincarnation. Moses is believed to have been the reincarnation of Abel and Seth.)

    When "sixty chariots" of Egyptians pursued the fleeing Hebrews, "the angel of God" in his "pillar of the cloud [spacecraft], retreated from going before the Hebrews and went between the two camps. (Note that it was the "angel of God," rather than God himself.)
    When the high-tech Jehovah parted the Sea with a "blast of his nostrils," thereby allowing the Hebrews to cross, with the Egyptians in hot pursuit, he "looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud [windows in the craft] and took off their chariot wheels." This enabled the Hebrews to travel across the Sea safely before Jehovah "blew his wind," causing the waters to drown the pursuing Egyptians.

    D.L comments: Note the anger, subtle lies, manipulating tricks, and complete disregard for human life that Jehovah took in order to allow him an opportunity to show off his technological powers! The killing of the firstborn and the drowning in the Sea both occurred after the Pharaoh had agreed to free the Hebrew slaves! These acts, therefore, were completely unnecessary!

    Now, lest Jehovah appears to be a thoughtful "god" who provided quail for his followers, the Bible states that during their forty years of wandering in the wilderness, the Hebrews, outside of the priestly Levite tribe, who ate a "remnant" of the sacrifice, were only allowed to eat meat twice. Their diet consisted of "manna" with a little produce, but the "firstfruits," the "firstborn" animals, and even the "firstfruits of the liquors" belonged to Jehovah. And these animal sacrifices that they were instructed to make were not just an occasional ritual, as had been the case with their ancestors, but a required "daily sacrifice," including a continual flow of bread, produce and wine; additional sacrifices were given on special "feast days. Can you imagine being forced to eat "manna" for forty years, while continually smelling the aroma of the daily barbecues?
    lol lol

    The second time they complained about not having meat, saying, "Our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all beside this manna before our eyes," they were again sent quail, but this time the meat was "plagued" and everyone that had "lusted," died.

    The third time they registered a complaint, Jehovah sent "fiery serpents" to bite them! eish, this guy loooooooool

    D. L comments: What a brutal method of weeding out the complainers!
    Jehovah's technology came in handy when he caused a rock to spew water, as Moses "smote it with his rod," and when he helped them to win a battle against Amalek, while Moses held his "rod" in the air. But when they were met by Moses' father-in-law, Jethro, who instructed Moses to select others to help him judge the people--counsel which was desperately needed--the great Jehovah was curiously silent. But then, he had never claimed to be it counselor!




    shots fired...

    While Jehovah gave him the "ten commandments," the people saw the "thunderings and the lightnings," heard "the noise of the trumpet," and saw "the mountain smoking."

    When Moses "drew near unto the thick darkness" in order to obtain additional laws, Jehovah promised to send an angel to guide him and his people, but warned: "beware of him and obey his voice, provoke him not for he will not pardon your transgressions; for my name is in him."
    This makes it clear that Jehovah and his "host" were not about to indulge themselves in any humanitarian action such as forgiveness!

    Moses was warned once again not to "bow down" to the "gods" of the enemies. The first commandment: "thou shalt have no other 'gods' before me, for I am a jealous God,"' reinforces the fact that Jehovah was only one of the tribal "gods."

    Later the predicted angel appeared to Balaam as a man standing with his sword drawn, however Balaam could not see him until the angel "opened his eyes." The fact that the "angel of Jehovah's host" appeared in human form would indicate that Jehovah, although interdimensional, could also appear in human form. And of course anyone under the command of the warlike Jehovah would naturally have his sword drawn and ready for battle!

    Moses descended the mountain, talked to the people, = recorded Jehovah's words, built an altar and twelve pillars, offered a sacrifice, read the "covenant" to the people and
    sprinkled them "with the blood of the covenant."
    Again, quite a job for an elderly man! Jehovah then invited Moses, his three priests and seventy elders, who had been given the inner truths, to "come up unto the Lord," where all seventy-four of them actually "saw the God of Israel." The Bible described this amazing sight:
    "And there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink."

    And did the "gods" serve something light and holy like angel-food cake or ambrosia, as was the case with the "gods" of Olympus? Indeed not! The Bible makes it clear they had an appetite for "fat things full of marrow and well-refined wine!" Imagine eating and drinking with "God," especially a winebibbing "god!" It is incredible that modern mankind, living in = today's technological age, still believe Jehovah was the Highest Supreme God!
    Would the Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient Father God of the vast universe of millions of galaxies, visit this = tiny, insignificant planet in a remote galaxy that sits at the outer edge of the universe? If this were the case, who would have been taking care of the rest of the universe while the "Most High God" was doing lunch with Moses? Even the President of our nation would not leave headquarters to perform such menial tasks! If we have a Congress, Representatives and Senators to handle such things, how much more organized would God be? The Bible mentions a divine hierarchy of many celestial beings. Couldn't one of these beings have dealt with Moses?

    He (Moses) and "his minister" Joshua were then invited "into the mount" [spacecraft], where they remained for "forty days," while the rest of the "nobles" (also called "heroes, adepts" or "initiates") returned to camp. During this time, Moses was given instructions about setting up a "tabernacle" so Jehovah could "dwell among them." It was to be furnished with an "ark of the covenant [a box-like structure containing the written covenant], sacred vessels of gold, furniture overlaid with gold, a brazen sacrificial altar and a laver. 'Details were also given concerning animal sacrifices, anointing oil, perfumes and special garments for the priests. After these instructions, Jehovah handed him "two tables of stone, written with his own finger.

    This "Law of Moses" was not unique. The Babylonian King Hammurabi has received a similar code of laws from his god around 1900 BC, some four hundred years before Moses. While the Atlanteans and the Sumerian civilization had received laws centuries before Hammurabi.

    In the meantime, due to the great delay of "forty days," the people, fearing that Moses was dead, made "a golden calf to guide them. The calf, representing the Age of Taurus and their association with Egypt, was a tremendous affront to Jehovah, who had instructed them to sacrifice rams, representing the new Age of Aries. When Jehovah became aware of the golden calf, he threatened to "consume" them, but Moses convinced him not to do so, and "the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do :shock: unto his people. lol lol lol

    Thus Moses, like Noah and Abraham had to counsel Jehovah, an act which happened on several occasions. It's a good thing that Moses was a fast talker, or else the Hebrews would have been wiped out in one fell swoop of Jehovah's mighty anger!

    When Moses and Joshua came back to camp, Moses was so upset that he broke the "stone tables" Jehovah had given him, then melted and ground the statue of the calf into powder, poured in water and made the people drink it!

    I don't imagine they enjoyed drinking their gold and ash cocktail one bit! Moses then had three thousand people put to death, but prayed for his brother Aaron, asking Jehovah to spare him, even though it was the artistic Aaron who had actually formed the calf.
    The next day Moses asked forgiveness for the people, but Jehovah "plagued" them, saying "I will not go up in the midst of thee, lest I consume thee in the way.

    Joshua later confirmed that Jehovah would not forgive their sins. After Moses told the people about Jehovah's anger, he set up a tent "afar off," so anyone seeking counsel had to go outside the camp.
    The people watched Moses, and whenever he entered, a "cloudy pillar [transporter beam] descended and stood at the door of the tent, and the Lord talked with him face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. This personal contact, however, is contradicted when Jehovah stated that "no man shall see me and live," a precaution meant to prevent them from making unto him any "graven images. Or perhaps he did not want his followers to see that he was a reptition!

    Whenever Moses left the tent, Joshua remained to minister to all who came. Moses was then instructed to make two new "stone tables" for Jehovah to write upon, so once again he climbed the mountain, and the "Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him.
    Moses remained there another forty days and forty nights, without eating or drinking. When he finally descended his "skin shone" so brightly that he had to "veil his face. Was this radiation'?

    Moses instructed the people, who had donated supplies for the "tabernacle," and worked with them to prepare it and its furnishings. When it was completed, thirteen months after they had left Egypt, the elaborate structure was finally raised! The Bible explains the exciting event:
    "A cloud covered the tent and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter into the tent because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: but if the cloud were not taken tip, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the Lord was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all the journeys.

    This "cloud covering" (forcefield from the craft) was not an occasional occurrence, the Bible says: "whether it were two days or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, the children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not; but when it was taken up [the craft ascended], they journeyed.

    Centuries earlier, the immortal "thrice-born" Thoth/Hermes Trismigistis had also received stone tables written by the finger of a "god" and

    the Egyptians had used a structure similar to the Hebrew "tabernacle" for their "mystery schools." They even had similar utensils and an "ark of the covenant," which they carried on staves.

    The Hindus of India also had an "ark," which they called "argha."

    The "rods" of Moses and Aaron also had magical powers. The "rod" of Moses became a serpent, brought pestilences, parted the Red Sea, caused water to pour out of rocks and brought locusts.
    When the Hebrews fought against Amalek, Moses held his "rod of God" in his hands, and when he "held up his hands Israel prevailed and when he let down his hands, Amalek prevailed," and when his hands became too heavy, Aaron and Hur held them up for him until the sun went down."
    After Aaron's rod "brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds, it was kept in the "ark of the covenant" as a sacred item.

    Were these magical rods a type of laser guns?

    THE ART OF SACRIFICING


    After Aaron and his sons were sanctified by an eight-day consecration, Aaron prepared a special sacrifice, consisting of it calf, a goat and a bull, which he placed beside the "burnt sacrifice of the morning." When he did so, "the glory of the Lord appeared unto all the people and there came a fire out from before the Lord, and consumed upon the alter [beamed up] the burnt offering and the fat.
    Shortly after that, two of Aaron's four sons "burned strange fire," that is they put the wrong kind of incense in their censers. For this they were "devoured" by Jehovah, who then instructed Aaron and his two remaining sons not to drink "wine or strong drink" when they went into the temple.

    The death penalty is pretty severe for burning the wrong kind of incense, but such were the laws of Jehovah, who also prescribed death for such things as "cursing, blasphemy, hitting or cursing one's parents, lying with a beast, men lying together, working on the Sabbath, having a familiar spirit or a wizard, and selling holy things or using part of the holy tithes. Jehovah had even given them laws on selling and buying slaves and selling their own daughters into slavery."'

    He required several different kinds of sacrifices and offerings, called: "sin, peace, trespass, thanksgiving, memorial, vow, oil, drink, and vegetable."
    Preparing the sacrificial animals was a monumental task! At the "dedication of the altar," for instance, the Bible says: "All the oxen for the burnt offering were twelve bullocks, the rams twelve, the lambs of the first year twelve, with their meat offering: and the kids of the goat for sin offering twelve. And all the oxen for the sacrifice of the peace offerings were twenty and four bullocks, the rams sixty, the goats sixty, the lambs of the first year sixty."

    That's quite a barbecue!
    But then there was quite a "host" of astronauts to feed! The Bible says: "The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Sier unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints."

    How many of them were in the large "mothership" and how many were in the smaller "shuttle craft" that hovered over the "tabernacle," is undetermined.


    hmmmmm

    So, it appears that Jehovah and his "host" had a comfortable "tabernacle" in which to beam down, a fully-equipped priest to minister to him, and twenty-two thousand servants to do their cooking, but what about the food itself? I always imagined that sacrificing an animal meant throwing the entire beast upon the altar, then setting it on fire. And this may have happened on rare occurrences, but it was not the norm. Jehovah instructed that the animal he "young and without blemish, then skinned and gutted, with these "unclean" portions taken "without the camp to be burned.

    "They were considered to be so "unclean" that the one who did the burning had to "wash his clothes and bathe his flesh in water," before returning to camp." The animal was then "flayed and cut into pieces and the fat removed." Even the turtledoves and young pigeons: were "plucked" with the wings "cleaved," although the rest of their body was left in one piece.

    The instructions for offering a lamb were: "the whole rump, it shall he take off hard by the backbone. So the animal was skinned, flayed and de-boned, making the sacrifice fit for a king, or an astronaut! And although it was called a "burnt offering," it was not burned, but merely cooked. A distinction is made when it is "wholly burned and not to be eaten."
    lol lol lol
    Special instructions were also given for washing the meat, the cooking vessels and the cleanliness of the cooks. The offering was also to be "seasoned with salt."

    These are some of Jehovah's recipes:
    "He shall offer with the sacrifice of unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried.
    "And when any will offer a meat offering unto the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon.
    "If thy oblation be a meat offering baken in a pan, it shall be of fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil. Thou shalt part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon.
    "The meat offering shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the Lord for a sweet savor; the drink offering shall be of wine."
    "And with the one lamb, a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering.
    "No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the Lord, shall be made with leaven; for ye shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in any offering of the Lord made by fire.
    "As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer them unto the Lord; but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savor... Thou shalt offer for the meat offering of thy firstfruits green ears of corn dried by the fire, even corn beaten out of full ears. And thou shalt put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon."


    (eish, this is serious)


    None of that sweet, fluffy stuff for them, just good old fried meat and wine! And of course they didn't want their fruit barbecued, but their corn (wheat) could be roasted!


    They must have liked the food, for the Bible continually mentions how they enjoyed the "sweet savor! But even though these were called "freewill offerings," there was a dire consequences to anyone who did not make them:
    "And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God.
    "What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp, and bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an offering unto the Lord before the tabernacle of the Lord; blood shall be imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people.

    Jehovah and his "host" did not eat all the sacrifices, a "remnant" was shared by Aaron and his sons and the Levites," but the other tribes were not allowed to eat them.

    Two years after leaving Egypt, the people, who were "numbered" to determine the strength of their "army," were described as "the stars of heaven for multitude; covering the face of the earth." They must have been quite a sight to behold: nearly three million people trekking across the desert. Such a group today would cause quite a stir, especially with the "pillar of the cloud" above them, the ornate, golden "ark of the covenant" leading the parade and the Levites struggling to carry the massive parts of the "tabernacle" upon their shoulders," because Levites "were not allowed to use wagons."

    When some of the people complained about an arduous three-day journey without meat, "the fire of the Lord burnt among them and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp." The fire was not quenched until Moses prayed. When the people began to cry, Moses said, "I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me." Jehovah answered: "Gather the seventy elders and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; they shall bear the burden of the people," and when his spirit "rested upon them, they prophesied.

    After Jehovah placed "his spirit" upon the "seventy elders" chosen by Moses, he promised the people that he would give them "meat to eat for twenty days," but he did not tell them that it was a trick.
    Even Moses was confused, asking, "Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them?Jehovah answered: "Is the Lord's hand waxed short? Thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not!
    Would the loving Omnipotent God of the entire universe of universes answer in such a sarcastic manner?

    Then came a "wind from the Lord, and brought quails from the sea, two cubits high upon the face of the earth." The people gathered the quail "and while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the Lord was kindled against the people, and the Lord smote them with a very great plague."

    He called the place "Kibroth-hattavah, because there they buried them that lusted." That's what I call a dirty trick! Couldn't he have just said "no," rather than giving them what they wanted then killing them for wanting it? Jehovah's "mercy seat" certainly didn't radiate much mercy!

    In Paran, Jehovah instructed Moses to send men from each of the twelve tribes to search out the land of Canaan. When they returned, after forty days, they reported that the people there were too strong and the cities too fortified for them to conquer. Hearing this news, many of the people, became frightened and rebellious and wanted to return to Egypt; some of them even wanted to stone Moses and Aaron. Only Joshua and Caleb, who "had another spirit" with them, were confident. Jehovah appeared before all the people, furious and desiring to "smite them with pestilence" and to "disinherit" them. Moses calmed and counseled him, :shock: but Jehovah, still filled with vengeance against "the evil congregation that had murmured against him," pronounced that none of the adults except Moses, Aaron, Joshua and Caleb would be allowed to enter the promised land of Canaan.

    So, instead of progressing onward, they turned back, and for the next forty years wandered in the "great and terrible, waste-howling wilderness," which Jeremiah later described as "a land of deserts and of pits; a land of drought, and of the shadow of death; that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt." While they were being punished, one year for each of the forty days that they had searched the land of Canaan, Jehovah made it clear that he was waiting for all the elders to die.

    Can you imagine spending forty years in a wasteland? The people had "manna" to eat, but how did the animals find sustenance in such a sparse area? Perhaps they too ate "manna!"

    When the Levite, Korah, rebelled, Moses not only counseled Jehovah, but gave him a better idea on how to handle the situation. Jehovah, however, still killed two hundred fifty men in one day, then started it "plague" which was so had that Moses had to pray hard and Aaron had to burn incense in order to stop it. Fourteen thousand, seven hundred died. (eish this guy )..
    When the Hebrews entered the desert of Zin, the people again rebelled because there was no water. Jehovah instructed Moses to smite a rock with his rod, but when Moses and Aaron did not properly sanctify Jehovah while doing so, they were told that they would not be allowed to go into the promised land either. " Thus only Joshua and Caleb, of the original three million Hebrews, were allowed to enter the long-awaited, promised land!

    CONQUERING THEIR ENEMIES


    When the Hebrews were attacked by their enemies and taken prisoner by a Canaanite king, Jehovah helped them to "destroy the cities," with his technology. The Bible describes this assistance from the spacecraft: "God, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky, the eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, 'Destroy them.' Israel then shall dwell in safety alone.
    Moses sang of Jehovah's greatness saying: "Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm; by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, they shall be as still as a stone. Perhaps "mighty" referred to his capacity for violence! This display of technology was not new.

    During the days of Abraham, the spacecraft had "rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from out of heaven [a nuclear bomb];" when Jacob and his family were escaping the defilers of Jacob's daughter, Dianh, their enemies did not pursue them because the "terror of God was upon the cities about them."
    King David later heralded Jehovah's technological ability saying: "Let God arise; let his enemies be scattered as smoke is driven away; as wax melteth before the fire."
    Isaiah said: "As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem. He hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them; and the hills did tremble, and their carcasses were torn in the mist of the streets. He will hiss unto them from the end of the earth; and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly." What are these "stretched out" or "everlasting arms underneath" that "hiss" and "thrust out the enemy" and destroy them with "a blast of his nostrils?" Were they heat and force beams or some other type of particle beams? It is interesting that the word "arm" suggests being "armed" and having an "army." This same type of weaponry is described in great detail in the sacred books of India.

    When Aaron was one-hundred-twenty-three, he died at Mount Hor, without even having seen the promised land." After mourning his death, the Hebrews journeyed from Mount Hor by way of the Red Sea to avoid Edom, the land that had been given to Esau, the son of Isaac and twin of Jacob. They knew that they were not to inhabit this land, but when they journeyed into the land of the Arnorites, descendants of Noah's son, Hang, who had been cursed, Jehovah "hardened" the king's spirit so they would battle. More of his Machiavellianism!!: And he evidently plans to continue this ploy into our present age, for he states in a prophetic scripture: "I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle.... Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations.... The God of heaven [shall] set up a kingdom. This a prediction of the One World Government? How can anyone possibly mistake this materially-minded "god" of war, violence and division for the loving Father God?
