The Jehovah of the Exodus puts 3000 Israelite insurgents to the sword for treason and sacrilege

On the day the Apis Bull altar was complete, Aaron announced that the following day, it   would be officially  commissioned in the name of the new Yahweh, Marduk, who was represented by the Apis Bull, or the Golden Calf as it is referred to in the Bible, and the people should present offerings to mark the highly momentous occasion. That they indeed did the following day, amid a lot of dancing, singing, feasting, and other such frenzied revelry. The euphoria and commotion was such that it reached the Sinai Mountain and inadvertently alerted Ishkur-Adad as to what was happening.


A perturbed Adad, the Anunnaki god of the Exodus, immediately ordered Moses to descend the mountain and acquaint with the situation firsthand. Adad also had Moses carry with him two tablets of his covenant with the Israelites for Moses to reiterate and reinforce when he faced his people just in case they were engaged in activity that was in flagrant breach of the covenant. The tablets, which had been inscribed in Adad’s own hands (through his aides of course), were meant to formalise the contract between Adad and the Nation of Israel.


Just as the church today is figuratively the bride and Jesus is figuratively the groom, Adad was the groom and the Nation of Israel the bride. The verbal contract had been a kind of engagement. The written contract would be a binding contract once Aaron officially ratified it as the High Priest designate of the Hebrew nation. 


It never crossed Moses’ mind that his people were up to some particularly outrageous act of mischief. When Joshua, who had accompanied him over his 40-day audience with Adad, suggested to him that something war-like was afoot in the camp, Moses said to the contrary his people were engaged in festivity of some kind and not anything untoward. He couldn’t have been more wrong.     

MOSES CLEVERLY ANNULS  ADAD’S PRENUP WITH ISRAEL

The spectacle that greeted Moses when he got to the foot of the mountain was beyond his wildest imagination. His people had fashioned themselves a new god, a foreign god, and they were paying homage to that god atop an altar. Moses was transfixed both with shock and searing anxiety. The ramifications  were dire. FOR WHAT IT ENTAILED WAS THAT THE SYMBOLIC MARRIAGE BETWEEN ADAD AND THE NATION OF ISRAEL HAD BEEN RENDERED NULL AND VOID. This was in all probability the end of Adad’s dealings with Israel.


It was a stab in his back that he wouldn’t take lying down like the hot-tempered god he was. If the Nation of Israel had decided to get rid of Moses and even killed a relation of Aaron to underscore their resolve, then when Moses finally materialised, they would have swarmed in on him to aggressively put the message across. Inevitably, Moses would have called upon the “angel” Adad had assigned to the Nation of Israel to see to it that he was not harmed in anyway. 


Moses firstly inquired of Aaron as to what all the kerfuffle was all about. The Bible’s version of events does not implicate Miriam at all simply because the aim of the  blatantly patriarchal and pro-Moses Pentateuch writers   was to substantially underemphasize the protagonistic role of Miriam in the affairs of the Nation of Israel. But in truth, Miriam was the bone of contention. It was she the Israelites wanted to be their queen at the expense of Moses.  In fact, both Miriam and Aaron were so popular as to be absolutely untouchable even to Adad himself.


Aaron had particularly endeared himself to the nation by readily obliging the Israelites when they demanded that he forge the Golden Calf and erect its altar. Concerned that the sin Israel had committed spelt enormous trouble for them at the hands of Adad, a quick-thinking Moses decided to engage in action that was certain to lessen the extent of the reprisals. He dismantled the two stone blocks on which the covenant between Adad and the Nation of Israel was summarised.


According to the Bible, he did this out of anger. Anger of course was the surface emotion but it was not the underlying reason. MOSES DESTROYED THE TABLETS TO CANCEL THE PRE-MARITAL CONTRACT BETWEEN ADAD AND ISRAEL. What that now meant was that Adad would judge Israel like an affianced woman who simply acted promiscuously and not as a married woman who did likewise. In other words, Adad would not divorce Israel as there actually had been no marriage: he would punish her somehow alright, but would still proceed to wed her anyway. Moses’ gesture was a masterstroke as that is exactly what transpired.

ADAD ORDERS THE EXECUTION OF 3000 DISSIDENTS

When Moses returned to the mountain top and reported what he had found, Adad was incandescent with rage and pronounced four measures against the Nation of Israel. First, all the ring leaders in the sacrilege would be put to death so as to deter the recurrence of any such abomination. Second, all the offspring of these same culprits would be subject to a curse spanning four generations. In other words, the curse, which would begin with them, would be in force up to and including their great grandchildren. What kind of justice is this that tars the innocent, both existing and unborn, with the same culpability brush? This, to say the least, is crass. But that is the warped juridical code of the gods of Christianity.


Third, he would send a plague (whose exact nature is not specified in the Bible) against the Nation of Israel as a whole both for taking part in and condoning the setting up and worshipping of a graven image. Fourth, he would no longer move in their midst in a flying saucer as he had done since they left Egypt as they were a “stubborn and rebellious people”. Nonetheless, Adad reiterated that despite their intractability, the Israelites would remain his people but he would reign over them with an iron fist and punish them severely whenever they offended against him.  


Accordingly, Moses, who was accompanied by a formidable security detail of Anunnaki men, gathered the Levites around him and in the presence of Aaron demanded that they point out to him the men who were at the forefront of the putsch. Once these malefactors were paraded, Moses ordered their fathers, brothers, next of kin, and immediate neighbours to come forward too, then handed out daggers to each one of them. They were  to  take turns in lancing the paraded culprits, who were either their own flesh and blood or very intimate friends or neighbours. 


It must have been gut-wrenching for a father to kill his own son,  a brother to kill his own brother, a relation  to kill his own relation, and a neighbour to kill his own neighbour,  but Moses didn’t care a damn: he wanted to make a statement – that he and his god would be ruthless at the slightest show of  insurrectionist or   sacrilegious tendencies.


Altogether, 3000 men were killed.  Once the deed was done, Moses asked the executioners, who clearly were choking for spilling the blood of their loved ones, to purify themselves and brace for a great blessing from  Adad.  “Consecrate yourselves today to Yahweh, for each man has been against his son and against his brother,  that a blessing  may be given over you today,” (EXODUS 32:29). 


Note, however, the paradox of the matter. Miriam, the rallying cry of the entire saga, and Aaron, who had so  meekly capitulated to the dissidents and personally fashioned the Golden Calf and built the altar,  got away scotfree, without so much as a slap on the wrist. But you need not be surprised: in every society, there are always  two sets of laws: the public domain  law, which binds the common herd like you and I,  and the unspoken law, which applies to and favours  the elite only. This Earth, My Brother …

MOSES FORCE-FEEDS ISRAELITES ON ORMUS OF GOLD

Since the Israelites were  such a rowdy lot and there was every indication that even the executions would by no means deter them,  Moses decided it was time he fed them with  a more potent version of Ormus. This was Ormus of  Gold. To date, the Israelites had been fed on Ormus alright,  but  it was the variety  made from copper. This one was just good enough to keep them in  generally sound health. The gold variety was meant to do much more, to make them more  rational in their judgement and in their thinking  so that they did not go to extremes in whatever behavior they indulged in. They would be able to weigh the  pros and cons of every course of action before they actualised it.


Moses’ task was made all the more easy  because in the Golden Calf Aaron had forged was sufficient  enough gold for the purpose. To that effect, this is what Moses did as per EXODUS 32:20: “Then he took the calf which they had made, burned it with fire and ground it until  it was pulverised;  he winnowed it upon the surface of the water and made the sons of Israel drink it.”


The brain-dead, undiscerning Christian clergy interpret Moses’ act as a “punishment” for his people’s disobedience toward Adad. To the contrary, this was not a punishment: it was a corrective and remedial ritual. FIRING GOLD DOES NOT PRODUCE POWDER: IT PRODUCES MOLTEN GOLD. What  Moses did was  to produce Ormus, the white, monoatomic powder of gold, and have the Israelites consume it whether they liked it or not.


The pay-off did not take long to materialise: soon the Israelites had discarded all their jewelry, which was largely made from gold. Furthermore, they lost a sense of vanity and no longer turned out in ostentatious clothing. Ormus had not only steadied their temperament  but made them a sensible and orderly people. However, this type of Ormus was a once-off treat: humans were not entitled to it. As such, it did not take long before the Israelites reverted to their  obdurate ways.

MOSES HITCHES A RIDE IN ADAD’S FLYING SAUCER
 
Although Moses was the King of the Nation of Israel, he felt his god, Adad, did not afford him the closeness he deserved. Adad never once allowed Moses to see his face. Every time he ascended the mountain to meet him, he actually met his aides and not Adad himself. The only thing he had been permitted to see of   Adad was the god’s shoed feet resting on a footstool.


Furthermore, Adad never once invited Moses to ride in any of the god’s flying machines. How could the King of God’s own chosen people be denied direct access to the god and to his chopper or some such sky vehicle, which symbolised the god’s throne?  Having decided that he just could not bear such a slight anymore, Moses set out to confront Adad on the matter.  Thus it was that on his next  ascendance to the mountain, Moses wondered aloud to Adad’s aides as to how he could convince his people that Adad was indeed a flesh-and-blood god when he had never seen him at close quarters.  Adad, Moses insisted,  should reveal much more  to him than he had done to date.


Now, when Moses asked to see Adad in person, he was not that matter-of-fact: he was tactical. According to English translations of the Bible, Moses, said, “Show me your glory”, EXODUS 32:18.  Sorry folks, but that’s not what Moses actually said. The term translated “glory” is actually KABOD. We have long unpacked the meaning of the term Kabod in earlier articles: it was a flying craft.  SO WHAT MOSES REQUESTED OF ADAD WAS TO TAKE HIM ON A RIDE IN HIS FLYING SAUCER, WHICH WOULD BE HIS CROWNING ACHIVEMENT AS A MORTAL.   


Of course Adad was not a dumb god: he knew what Moses really wanted – to see him face to face, literally, not figuratively as had been the case in the past. Speaking through his aides, Adad once again reiterated his warning: “No one may see my face and live,” EXODUS 32:20. Nonetheless, Adad was prepared to relent a bit this time around to  content his great protégé to the barest minimum. He  consented to taking Moses on a ride in his sky vehicle allright, but made it clear to him that whilst they were airborne, he would allow Moses to see only his backrest, that is, the  back of the seat in which the god would sit alongside his pilot.


This special treat is related in EXODUS 33:18-23 but in a manner that hardly makes any sense as the Pentateuch scribes simply did not understand the figurative language employed in their records of reference  and so put their own laughable slant on the story.  According to the biblical version,  Moses was put in the hollow of a rock by Adad. Then Adad covered the opening of the crevice with his hand, after which he removed his hand to allow Moses to see only his back. But why go to that extent if all Adad wanted to show Moses was his backside?


It would have been much simpler for Adad to  ask Moses  to come up the mountain and see his back whilst he sat on a stool of some kind.  Clearly, either the scribes didn’t know what they were talking about or the exact nature of the event was scrambled through the passage of time thanks to faulty or interpolative copy editing.
  
ADAD AND MYSTERIOUS CLOUD COMMISSION WILDERNESS TABERNACLE


 Once Adad had meted out all the retributions against the Israelites, he was now in position to renew his covenant with the Nation of Israel. So once again, he summoned Moses up the mountain to furnish him with the one he had tactfully destroyed. You can call this a renewal of the marriage vows between Adad and Israel. In addition, Adad was to administer to Moses a whole glut of instructions over multifarious issues.  Whereas last time around he was accompanied by Joshua, this time around he was all alone. Moses had trusted Joshua to maintain order and discipline amongst the Israelites whilst he was away to avoid a repetition of the Golden Calf saga.   


Once again, Moses spent “40 days and nights” on the mountain. Of course,  the number 40  was not literal but figurative. In  fact, this time around Moses stayed on the mountain even longer than he did previously, for when he returned, he shone so brightly that he had to veil his  face as the Israelites thought  it would be dangerous to come near him. The simple explanation for this oddity is that he had partaken Ormus throughout his stay and as such he too shone like the Anunnaki.


Onwards now, Moses dedicated himself to the construction of the Tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant. The concomitant projects were completed after eight months. The commissioning of the Tabernacle  was graced by Adad himself. Details on the incident are sketchy  in the Bible. We’re not told, for instance, what kind of ceremonies were conducted or whether Moses or Aaron gave an inaugural sermon to the Nation of Israel in the presence of Adad.


In fact, what the Bible intimates is that none of the Israelites was allowed to  set foot in the Tabernacle on the occasion. There were only two presences in the Tabernacle. This was Adad, who came in his chopper, referred to as usual as the Glory of the Lord, and a cloud that shrouded the entire Tabernacle as if to conceal whatever Adad and his aides were doing from the multitude of the  Nation of Israel. We’re already familiar with the concept of the Glory of God. But just what was this humongous cloud which assumed various shapes and  went before the Nation of Israel in a pillar-like configuration during day time throughout their  wilderness wanderings?
