The letter/number code that is assigned to ‘God’ in the opening verse is H430, which references the ĕlôhı̂ym. Strong’s definitions refers to H430 as being the plural of H433 God (אלהּ אלוהּ ⟺ אֱלוֹהַּ), thus implying that a supreme God was working in cohorts with other gods with regards to this epic of creation. The first BDB Lexicon 1(a) defines this God as rulers and judges, followed by (b) divine ones, (c) angels and then (d) gods.
Part (2) refers to the plural intensive – singular meaning, where 2(a) lists god and goddess (in lowercase), followed with (b) god-like one, (in lowercase), before we see the grammatically correct (c) special works or possession of God, (d) the (true) God, and (e) God. Note that (c), (d) and (e) include capitalized “G” to denote the use of proper nouns, referencing unique entities, informing us that these elements of H430 God are something more than a common class.
You may wish to point out that when referring to the Jewish national god, the ĕlôhı̂ym is understood to be singular, therefore, the code should be applied in terms of 2(d) the (true) God, or even 2(e), but if this was a direct reference to Jehovah or Yahweh acting alone then the verse would have used the LORD H3068 code which specifically refers to the proper name of the one true God as referenced above in 2(d), thus confirming Yahweh or YHWH as part of the ĕlôhı̂ym in the plural sense of the term.
Had Yahweh been working alone or in the singular capacity as opposed to being part of a multi faceted godhead we would see the following code to denote such.
Yet we do not.
Interestingly the ĕlôhı̂ym H430 code comes from the root H433 God, which also reveals a link to God H410 and this is where things get extremely interesting.
According to Strong’s, God H410 is the most high êl (Shaddai), the Sumerian equivalent (during the times of Abram) being the supreme sky god An, or Anu as he was known as in Akkadian mythology. This deity was one half of the progenitor of the Annunaki along with his female counterpart Ki, the goddess of earth, both being probable contenders for being the heaven and earth that are referred to in Genesis 1:1.
An/Anu or êl was also identified with the north ecliptic pole in the constellation Draco, which coverts the symbol of that old dragon.
Note how the first BDB Lexicon of H410 lists êl in (lowercase) as god, god-like one and mighty one in the sense of 1(a) mighty men, men of rank, mighty heroes, echoing Genesis 6:4 when the sons (Annunaki / ang-êls) of God (êl) came in unto the daughters of men to bare mighty men or the Nephilim. Make of that what you will. The verse seems to imply sexual intercourse but this is not logical when you consider that the gods were representative of the forces of nature or spirits, what aspect of them could have a physical relationship with a human.
Then we see 1(b) angels, 1(c) god, false god (demons, imaginations) and then lastly we see the most important definition listed as 1(d), God, the one true God, Jehovah. Note there is no use of an uppercase “God” to denote a unique entity until the last definition.
Let us be realistic. If God êl H410 was the eternal Jehovah, the ‘self-existing One’, the deity that manifest at the burning bush before Moses, then it would surely be listed as 1(a), not last as an undefined god, therefore, we know this êl is another, much older god, as defined by H410 and then by H352.
Let us take a closer look.
God H410 êl is shortened from H352 (RAm) which has its word etymology in H193, equating êl with prominence and providing a wider definition of a mighty man who had strength like a (battering) ram and who was strong like an oak tree.
Genesis 12:6 recounts Abram’s journey to the plains of Moreh where he stopped at the oak tree at Shechem and built an altar to the LORD.
With God H430 being linked to êl H410 who was regarded as the progenitor of the Anunnaki, another very important deity to consider is Enki, later known as Ea by the Akkadians. Interestingly Ea is vocalised as ‘eh-yeh’. Now then, Enki was considered to be the god of creation, intelligence, crafts, water, seawater, lake water, fertility, semen, MAGIC and MISCHIEF.
Rather tellingly, Enki’s symbols are the GOAT (RAm) and FISH. Recall how H410 BDB Lexicon 1(c) referenced demons, which is seen with Baphomet and linked with H352 ram.
Now cast your thoughts to Exodus 3.14 and consider that it was Moses that stood before the burning bush and asked the name of god, to which the reply was:
I AM THAT I AM
The above is pronounced as ‘ehyeh asher Ehyeh’ where Ea (Enki) is spoken as eh-yeh.
In Strong’s Concordance the word “AM” translates to hâyâh which is pronounced haw-yaw, so the verse is hâyâh asher hâyâh or haw-yaw asher haw-yaw, in other words, the message for the Israelites was from the ‘I AM’ god hâyâh who was Ea the Father of B(êl) Marduk.
Let us look at that ‘burning bush’ moment again and remember that Ea was a god of magic and mischief. A bit of a devil…
The first BDB Lexicon for hâyâh H1961 AM is , to be, become, come to pass, exist, happen and fall out, which sounds curiously similar to the Gnostic wisdom goddess Sophia and her fall from the pleroma.
This is further supported by the fact that H1961 comes from the primitive root H1933 which means to fall and which is compared to H183 which means to lust or desire.
Found in H1961 is the primitive root of H183 which refers to lusting where it was Sophia’s desire to create something like herself in ‘The Fall of Sophia’ (9.25 – 10.19) which can be found in the ‘Secret Book of John’ in the ‘Nag Hammadi’ scriptures. If you are familiar with the tale of Sophia and appreciate wisdom in Greek is from Sofis (σοφία), you will understand that due to Sophia’s desire to act without the consent of the spirit, she created an abomination called Yaldabaoth, a creature that had the face of a lion with eyes that flashed like bolts of lightning and the body of a snake dragon.
The ‘Fall of Sophia’ (the wisdom goddess) succinctly highlights the symbols of the lion, snake (dragon), lightning and wisdom, which are all found in the Bible. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Rev 5:5), Luke (10:18) states that Satan (that old dragon) was beheld as lightning fall from heaven, and the snake (serpent/dragon) is found in the ‘Garden of Eden’ imparting wisdom to Adam and Eve where there is a ‘Tree of Knowledge’ which is wisdom.
The characters that feature in the Bible are linked to ancient Babylon and Sumer, as well as the more recent Nag Hammadi scriptures. The creator God of Genesis, H430 is the Gnostic chief archon Yaldabaoth and along with the co-rulers, judges, divine ones, angels, etc., that he creates, collectively they are known as the ĕlôhı̂ym.
Yaldabaoth, also An or Anu, is described as having many faces, including a sheep, donkey, hyena, snake, and a lion, as in the Lion of Judah. Note how the other faces are linked to the Bible, Abel was a keeper of sheep and also the name of the seventh authority (son) that Yaldabaoth created. The snake or serpent was in the Garden of Eden.
An and his son Ea (Enki) who is synonymous with hâyâh, is the I AM God that spoke to the Israelites through Moses. Enki / Ea was known as LORD EARTH, hence we find (ea) in (ea)rth. We also see earth linked to WAS (earth-was) with H1961, where this is the same self existent hâyâh the I AM God of Israel. With this in mind, the term earth-was seems to imply earth are hâyâh are the same thing.
