The chronological structure of biblical history from the beginning of the world to its end is defined in two ways.
The first one is the numerical chronology and dates of the most important events. We have already written a lot about chronological dating (see our works “The Biblical Apocalyptic Chronology”, “An Attempt of Reconstruction of the Chronology of Christian Era” and “The Structure of the Biblical History”). Now we need to analyze in detail the order of the eras in the Bible.
The second one is a certain order and sequence of different eras of the world history.
The loss of man’s freedom
The history of the world begins with the fall of man. The devil entered this world and via the fall of man the world was cursed – the devil took power over its. Concerning people, everything went in a special way. In order to determine a holistic picture and patterns of the biblical world history, we need to trace what goals the devil sets concerning people and how he tries to achieve them.
Isaiah writes that the devil wants to be equal to God and requires himself to be worshiped as God: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isa. 14: 12-14).
God firstly created the Heaven – the world of angelic personalities headed by Himself («The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens» Psalm 103:19). Then God created the Earth (our world). Man was put as the head of the world.
God, man and angels are persons. Both angels and people are created similar to God, and often both people and angels are called “sons of God”. But there is a difference between them.
The main feature of any personality is freedom. Angels are ministerial spirits called to serve both God and man. And they have the freedom to serve or refuse and even to oppose. Thus, Satan, who refused to serve God, received the name שָׂטָן “adversary”. But the angels did not receive the freedom to create, the freedom that the only God has. The devil opposing God, can not create anything new except to try putting God’s dignity on himself, which in reality looks as perverted inside out.
The devil fell away from God, rebelled against Him and seduced a third of the angels. The next Devil’s target was man.
Man is much higher than angels. Man is actually a «small god» with numerous features inherent in God the Creator. Only for the sake of man and his salvation God incarnated as a Man and endured the Cross. The devil understands that God will not worship him, but since he decided to make himself equal to God, he requires himself to be worshiped as God, and for him it will be a great success to be worshiped of people who were created almost like God and are incomparably higher than the devil himself.
The Qur’an says: “And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate before Adam”; so they prostrated, except for Iblees. He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers“. God ordered the angels to serve man endowed with features that are not available even to angels (in particular, the creative freedom). But Satan/Iblis refused, because he himself wanted people served him. When the angel of Light became Satan, an adversary to God, it is clear that he did not want not only to serve man, but also to accept the divine status of man. As the devil seduced a third of the angels, so he set out to seduce man to worship him. The devil did not have the ability directly to seduce people to serve and worship him (as he did it with a third of angels). Man and God were tightly bound by a communion. And no angel could penetrate there.
Therefore, he decided to push the people themselves to damage this communion. He gave them the idea that God was deceiving them, and that communion with God does not improve people, but rather restricts them. Therefore, it is worth breaking this connection through violation of the commandment and people will become “like Elohim”.
God gave people one prohibitive commandment – not to eat the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the form of a material fruit of a material tree.
Here we must pay attention to the most important feature of human nature. At the heart of angelic nature is spirit. Yes, an angel can take on flesh. For example, Satan took the fleshly form of a serpent, and the watchers (Book of Enoch) took on different carnal forms. But the essence of an angel is only spiritual. And when some of the angels rebelled against God in spirit, this process became irreversible.
Man, however, has a double nature. Material corporeal – “the dust of the ground“; and spiritual – God “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life“. We do not know why God created man in this way, but the dual spiritual-bodily character of man did not allow the devil immediately to enslave man and induce to serve him.
As a result of the temptation, Adam and Eve doubted God and ate the fruit. But this doubt led neither to a complete breakdown of the relations with God, nor to the worship the devil. The fall of man led to the fact that man lost his power over the Earth (material world). Matter no longer “automatically” obeys man. Now the devil is the prince of matter.
In order to dominate matter, it become necessary for man to exert effort. Actually, the “damned” damaged Earth can no longer just feed people, and they must work hard on it.
And since man broke his connection with God, and man himself is the pinnacle of creation, then the connections within the creation were also damaged. The whole world has been damaged. Matter, as a result of disruption of communication, acquired a tendency to decay, and since man has a material body, the body began to decay and man became mortal. Moreover, the entire material world, has become subject to decay and will sooner or later perish.
However, due to the dual nature of man, the devil could not immediately get him into his worshipers. In essence, by seducing a person in a spirit, that is, pushing a person to doubt God, the devil achieved only human mortality and damage to matter. And by pushing people to eat a banned material fruit, he achieved only the fact that man received dependence on matter, but not absolute: a person still has the opportunity to fight this dependence.
Having sinned, man was expelled from Paradise, became mortal but received from God certain conditions, rules of life in the cursed world, in order to Salvation would become possible in the future. In fact, this is a kind of first and basic Covenant between people and God. Basic, because its provisions underlie all further covenants: with Noah, with Abraham, with Moses, and the New Testament. Here are the main provisions of this basic covenant:
1. The devil, by his actions in the world, is limited only by the ability to tempt people materially and earthly – “bruise his heel”. People lost a part of their freedom and received dependence on matter (the Earth), and therefore dependence on its prince – the devil.
2. Man got the ability to be at enmity with the devil through bruising his head. That is by mentally recognizing temptations and controlling the mind man got the ability and responsibility to rule over the devil. That is, the devil received power over the material world, but did not receive power over man. Here is an example of such a struggle and the power of man over the devil: “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him” (Matthew 4: 1-11). Here a Man is Christ, and the devil tempted Him as a man. Jesus rejected the material temptations of the devil relying on the Scriptures, and in the end drove him away, showing his power over him. And the angels began to serve him, as it should have been since the creation.
3. Through labor, suffering and death, people received restrictions in their sins, if man suddenly fails to control his thoughts and mental struggle with the devil.
4. Patriarchy: a woman must obey a man and “in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children”. A woman is not admitted to ritual and religious service and administration.
5. The woman received consolation that someday the Savior of mankind would be born from a woman.
6. A man must, with the help of reason, rule over the devil and over the woman.
7. Man received hope that in the future his Descendant will save the world.
8. In order to people could correctly perceive the future great Sacrifice of the Savior, God gave them new forms of communication with God – a sacrifice of animals and food. This was supposed to prepare a person to accept the Jesus sacrifice. Probably, the first sacrifice was already in Paradise, and then a certain order of sacrifices was established. After the great Sacrifice of Christ, sacrifices are no longer needed.
The double nature of man played the role of a double line of defense. Having broken through the first line, the line of the spirit and putting man the doubt God, the devil “got stuck” in matter. He wanted the worshiping in spirit, but he only got the opportunity to tempt people with material things. And man got the opportunity to resist this. But the most important thing is that in the future, thanks to a matter man’s body, God will incarnate and materialize and in such way He will defeat the devil and save man.
That is, a special protected sphere appeared in a person – the sphere of the spirit or, in other words, the mind, where access was closed for the devil. Once again: the devil first of all attacked the spirit of man, but this way became closed to him, and he was limited by the influence on the flesh, the matter of man. Waging a mental struggle with the devil, man can block him, and also rule over him, which, in fact, was conceived from the very creation of man.
What about the devil? How did he react to this limitation of him by matter and his inability to enter the sphere of the human Spirit? How does he get worship from a person?
Actually, just as he managed to seduce the first people. Fulfillment of the commandments, walking in the ways of God is a voluntary matter and a person is free to refuse to do it. God gave new commandments and new rules of life to fallen people. And there have always been people who also do not want to fulfill the commandments. Moreover, they are ready to go much further than Adam and Eve, who, having sinned, repented. Many people refuse to fulfill the commandments, begin to serve the devil and struggle against God.
Cain and Cain civilization
Let us emphasize once again that Adam and Eve repented of their sin, accepted new conditions of life in the cursed world and communication with Gog, and began to expect the Salvation with hope. Adam confirmed the commandment of childbearing from his wife by giving her the appropriate name Eve, and Eve accepted hope and began to wait for the Savior.
So the first thing Adam and Eve did in the sinned world was to give birth to a son. When Eve gave birth to her first child, she gave him the name Cain: “and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD” (Genesis 4: 1). Name Cain is a from the root קָנָה which means “to acquire”. There are two points. First, Eve gives the name to the firstborn. It is strange, because as a result of the fall of man, God established patriarchy. In theory, the name should have been given by Adam. Secondly, the strange phrase קָנִיתִי אִישׁ אֶת-יְהוָה can be translated in different ways: both as “I got a man from Yahweh”, and as “I got him – a man is with Yahweh”. Based on this, there is a hypothesis that Eve, who was the first to be seduced by Satan, and whom God promised that someday the One who will smite the Serpent would be born, hoped that her firstborn could be that Savior-Christ. But the devil immediately understood this and immediately directed all his efforts to seduce the likely savior. The mystery of the Christ was revealed much later, and neither Eve nor the devil could know it. Eve mistakenly hoped and the devil immediately attacked this hope.
Unfortunately, Christians do not understand well what happened to Cain, but this became the eventful beginning of the world history and launched the explicit laws of history that are still valid in the world and will remain in effect until the end of this world. A correct and deep understanding of the history of Cain and Abel will open to us a vision of the laws of development and periodization of the whole world history.
The story of Cain and Abel is described in the book of Genesis, and some of its fragments are developed in other books of the Bible. Moreover, this story in the Hebrew Masoretic text and the Septuagint is significantly different. Only by following all these testimonies one can understand what happened.
“And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass / (in the Septuagint “And it was so after some time”), that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.”(Genesis 4: 1-8).
“And it was so after some time”. This indicates to us that the sacrifice had to be made in a certain order (according to a certain calendar and procedure). Sacrifice is a new form of communication between man and God after the fall of man, and its order is determined by God. Different types of sacrifice imply a certain order of division of the sacrifice – what to God and what to man. Some sacrifices are not divided at all, and are offered to God entirely. What kind of sacrifice were the brothers to offer at that time? One can try to find out from the context.
What kind of sacrifice did Abel make? Abel sacrificed cattle. Before the Flood, people did not eat meat, so it can be assumed that Abel left nothing for himself and brought the whole sacrifice not dividing it into a part to God and a part to himself.
The whole sacrifice is primarily a Covenant sacrifice. A whole sacrifice used to make by a person in commemoration of the conclusion of a covenant with God. And Abel, with such a sacrifice to confirm his connection with God.
That is, Abel says with such a sacrifice to God –”my Godeverything is to You, I am completely Yours, and in me there is nothing of my own, autonomous”. And God accepted such a sacrifice, which means that it corresponded to God’s commandments.
But what about Cain and his sacrifice? The modern Jewish Masoretic text does not give us this answer, but the Septuagint comes to our aid: “but Cain and his sacrifices he regarded not, and [someone] sadden Cain (ἐλύπησεν τὸν Καιν) and his countenance fell“. There is a hint of a third person, who pushes Cain to sadness and anger. Who is this?
Then God says to Cain:
“If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him” (Masoretic text).
“If you offer correctly but do not divide correctly, have you not sinned? Be still; his recourse is to you, and you will rule over him” (Septuagint).
Cain prepared the sacrifice correctly, but divided it incorrectly. The fact that Cain divided the sacrifice suggests that he claimed a different place, a different position of man in the universe and in relation with God. Cain did not want to live the way God directed for mankind. Perhaps Cain demanded to change the Covenant, the relationship with God. But God did not agree with Cain’s ambitions. And Cain was sad/angry and turned his face to the ground. In the Biblical semantic language, if a person lifts his eyes to the sky, then he turns to God. To bow your face or eyes to the ground (Satan crawls on the ground, he is tied to the ground and tempts people by the earthly) means turning to Satan. It was Satan, this mysterious the third, who tempted Cain to change the order established by God, and then, when God did not accept the sacrifice, incited Cain to anger and sorrow.
We see that Cain was in trouble. Here God intervenes and speaks to Cain. He explains why He did not accept the sacrifice – because Cain’s ambitions are unacceptable for the path of salvation, and warns that both these ambitions, and the sadness and the turning of the face to the ground are all from the devil and threaten a person with enslavement. But God reminds that a person should not be enslaved by the devil; man can and should rule over the devil and not accept his temptation: “sin lies at the door”, “He [the devil] is recoursing to you, and you rule over him”. In particular, for a start, Cain must at least shut up and do nothing “Be still” – that is, not to communicate with the devil with words and thoughts.
But what is Cain doing? He does not want to obey God, he decides to make a covenant with the devil and kills his brother Abel. Not just kills – but sacrifices Abel to the devil.
The Scripture clearly explains it: “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew (σφάζω) his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous” (1 John 3:12). The term σφάζω “to slay” in Scripture is used to mean sacrifice. That is – Cain became a follower, the son of the devil and sacrificed Abel to him. In response to the call of God to turn away from the devil and return to God, Cain consciously and finally goes into the service of the devil, and Cain manifests his inner faith, his communion with Satan, making a human sacrifice. That was the Cain’s answer to God.
Abel was better than Cain: “By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts…” (Hebrews 11: 4). The best is always sacrificed. So Cain brought the best – Abel as a sacrifice to Satan.
If Cain shared the sacrifice to God, then the sacrifice to Satan Abel, Cain brought it entirely, trying to conclude a covenant with the devil. But one can’t make a covenant with the devil. If in relation to God Cain wanted to have his own autonomous place, then in the covenant with the devil Cain completely obeys him.
People sinned even before Cain. Adam and Eve sinned against God. However, having sinned, they did not depart from God, but repented. Cain, on the other hand, deliberately departed from God, refused to worship God Yahweh, and instead of Him, made Satan as a god. Cain is the first Satanist, Antichrist in human history.
And what about Yahweh?
“And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand; When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him” (Gen. 4: 9-15).
Cain begins to treat Yahweh as an enemy, an adversary. He had everything turned upside down. Opponent and enemy – Satan became a god, and God and Father Yahweh became an enemy. Cain lies to the face of his “enemy”, he panics before Him. Yahweh replies that although the curse of Cain was aggravated, He gave him protection.
God clearly defines the relationship between the children of God, (the Church) and Cain, the Cainites. Any violence against the Cainites will result in sevenfold harm to the attacker. The Cainites are the spiritual children of the devil. And since people can be at enmity with the devil only by spiritual warfare, then with the Cainites, people faithful to God can be at enmity with the spiritual warfare by means of the word of God. Violence against Cainites is meaningless and harmful; it only strengthens the Cainites and their father, the devil. Cain receives his seal – a special sign so that he and those like him could be recognized.
As a result of the Fall of man, a person begins the process of degradation of thinking. From a personalistic representation of the world, people and God, – the human mind begins to lean towards materialistic abstract-eidetic and at the end, digital thinking, where both the world and persons are presented in the form of dead abstract materialistic models.
Adam and Eve sinned and immediately hid from God in the bushes. As a result of sin, their minds were damaged, became dependent on matter and began to perceive God not as an omnipotent and all-knowing Person, but as material subject from which one can hide in the material bushes. In order to stop the degradation of the people’s mind, God gives people certain religious practices, primarily a sacrifice that God can accept or reject. This should show a person that God is not a mechanism or computer, that he cannot be programmed or conjured. That He should be treated only personally and as a live, free Person. God will protect the mind of his faithful sons from slipping into the mechanical philosophy.
The same thing happens to Cain. He sins by wanting to impose a certain relationship mechanism on the free Personality of Godhead. God doesn’t accept that. Then Cain departs from God, kills Abel and sinks even deeper into sin. His mind loses the adequacy of the perception of reality. Cain is lying to God that he does not know where Abel is. Cain no longer sees in God an omniscient Person and thinks that God can be deceived. Cain begins to see God only in the material plane. Any human community without God leads to a striking degradation of human thinking and a slide towards primitive material thinking. And the longer humanity lives without God, the stronger this degradation of thought is. In Cain and his civilization this process is just beginning, Cain is still a person of personal religion, but then in the future everything gets worse.
Cain is cursed. This is not just some vague curse, but a curse “from the earth”. Man was placed at the head of the earth. But when the fall of Adam and Eve occurred, the earth was damaged – cursed. Now, to feed people, the earth must be worked with hard labor.
However, shedding blood on the ground, Cain became cursed from the already cursed earth. That is, Cain received a “double curse”. Now, even hard work on earth will not give Cain and his followers sufficient food. The only way for the Cainites to survive is to invent new technologies. And the farmer Cain, realizing that the earth could no longer feed him, makes such an invention – this is a city and urban civilization.
“And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch” (Gen. 4:16,17).
However to feed Cainites was not the main aim of Cain’s invention. The key aim was religious – to change man.
Cain goes to the East. In the Bible semantic, the East is God and from the East God will come. To go to the East is to go against God. Cain goes from his family against God and founds his own civilization. Cain is the first devil worshiper, Satanist, God-fighter, founds his God-fighting satanic civilization, and invents the city as a religious center. The change of man, made by Cain is to change the social being of man from the family to the city.
An important point should be noted here. All civilizations opposed to God will not only survive and develop on the cursed earth with the help of technology, but also use technology for religious purposes. Technologies are used both to interact with the earth and to change man, and therefore for religious purposes.
Eve expected Cain to become that promised Christ-Savior, but he became the first antichrist. And he founded his “anti-Christian” satanic civilization. The civilization of Cain-Antichrist is global, because apart from the small family of Adam and the descendants of Seth, the rest of the inhabited space is Cainites. This civilization is governed from one center – from the line of Kanin’s descendants. The center and meaning of its existence is to serve the devil and go against God and His Church. All subsequent godless civilizations will strive to the global power.
Sometime at the end of time, the last Antichrist, “the second Beast”, New Cain will build a similar global satanic religious civilization. Its adherents, like Cain, will receive a special seal – 666. And it will also oppose the faithful people of God – Christians. But that will be much later, at the end of the story. Until that time, both worldly and divine stories will go a long way.
However, let us return to the Cain civilization.
“And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech. And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah. And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold” (Gen. 4:18-24).
This finishes the biblical story of the Cain civilization. The last lines of this story are the so-called cry of the descendant of Cain – Lamech. Lamech is desperate and sad. He complains to his wives (which is strange) that for the murder he receives a punishment “I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt”. Lamech killed someone. But for the Cainites, killing is common. Lamech also states “If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold”. It could mean that Lamech understand that the curse of Cain will never be eliminated. Cain, when he killed Abel, did not cry. Why is Lamech crying? Before the weeping, there is a description of the Cainite lineage. But on Lamech it breaks off. Cain’s civilization is coming to an end. After all, it is important for its that the ruler was precisely from the family of Cain, who was cut short on Lamech. But how did it happen when Lamech had two wives (polygamy is an invention of the Cainites) and they gave birth to children. But this is not the strangest thing.
From Eve to Sarah, the Bible does not mention a single female name. God established patriarchy, and a woman must submit to a man – a husband if she is married, an adult son if she is widowed, or a father if she has not yet married. She can even get married only with the permission of her father. Even if a woman gives birth to a child, the Bible usually says that the child was born by a man – a father, not a woman.
And then suddenly three names of women are mentioned. In the biblical semantic language, the mention of a name means something very important and significant. The mention of the names of Cainite women indicates that the role of women in the Cain civilization has grown greatly, and there is no longer a commanded by God patriarchy. Interestingly, Lamech complains to his wives that his civilization is coming to an end. Probably Cainite women have a lot to do with this end.
And most importantly, it is written that it was not Lamech who gave birth to the children of Lamech’s wives, but his wives. In the Biblical genealogies, men give birth. Even if it is said that a woman gave birth, then before that it is usually mentioned that a man “entered” her, “knew” her, “slept”, “lay” with her, etc. But here women give birth without mentioning the participation of a man. This means only one thing – Lamech is not the father! But who are their fathers?
The answer to this question must be sought in the children of Lamech’s wives. “Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah”. There was a revolutional civilizational turn, a technological explosion. Many new, hitherto unknown technologies, from tents to iron processing, appeared. Where did these technologies come from? And the most important point is Naamah. The woman mentioned without mentioning her husband is already an allusion to her unconventional role. There is a hypothesis that this is an allusion to temple prostitution. And her marvelous name (Νοεμα, נעמה ), Naamah – “attractive, very beautiful.”
The emergence of fundamentally new technologies indicates that a new post-Cain civilization has begun, or rather a new form of Cain civilization. And the name of Naamah, without mentioning her husband, leads us to the answer, what kind of a new civilization it was.
You need to ask yourself – what led to such a sharp degradation of the Cain family and its civilization? The answer is obvious: violation of the commandments of God (worship of God, dominion over a woman and Satan, repentance). The damnation is the loss of the life-giving power of the earth, which must be compensated for with more and more new technologies, which still exhaust themselves over time.
During the time of Cain, humanity was divided into people faithful to God (“the children of God”) and into “the children of the devil “; into the Church and into one or another form of a godless civilization. “The children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother” (1 John 3:10).
All who are not from God are Cainites. In the world history, there is immutable law – there are from God, and there are from the devil… There is no third. There are only two forms of people historical existence – the Church and a civilization (which is always of a satanic type: there are no non-Satanic, Christian civilizations). Thus, two directions or two kinds of historical reality were formed – the history of the divine, namely, the history of the relationship between faithful humanity (the Church) and God and the history of the worldly, that is, satanic, that is, the history of civilizations subordinate to the devil.
What is Cain, what is the essence of this phenomenon in the most general sense? After all, Cain is not just a separate person, Cain is a new spirit of people’s life in the world, it is a civilization, it is an alternative to the Church, which is characterized by a number of properties that will be inherent in all forms of non-church, and therefore satanic civilizations:
1. Cain is the first unrepentant sinner. All civilizations consciously do not want to follow the path indicated by God.
2. Cain is the first Satanist. All civilizations are based on some form of service and / or worship of the Devil.
3. Cain is a slave of the devil. All civilizations are essentially a slave service to the devil.
4. Cain is the first murderer. All world civilizations are based on some form of murder of man. The devil was a murderer because he seduced people and they became mortal. Likewise, all Cainite devil worshipers follow the path of the devil actively using murder. The Cainites cannot stop killing, so not only Cain killed, but also the descendant of Cain Lamech.
5. Cain is the first enemy of the Church. Cain killed not just his brother, but killed him precisely because he was pleasing to God. All world civilizations outside of the Church are at enmity against the Church and people faithful to God.
6. Cain is the first fighter against God. All civilizations are not just the worship of the devil, but also the struggle against God in this world.
7. The building of civilizations is an irresistible desire of all sinful people. As soon as people move away from God, they begin to mold a civilization, as if they were a wind-up dolls.
8. Cain is the first “savior” to offer salvation to the world through technology improvement and human change. The goal of civilization is salvation from the curse without the participation of God.
9. Cain is the first depersonalizer. Any civilization without God degrades in its thinking from the personal perception of God and man to the materialistic abstract and even digital.
10. Cain is cursed “from the earth”. Now, even as a result of hard labor on the earth, it can no longer feed the Cainites. Therefore, all Cain civilizations are trying to survive by developing and introducing more and more new technologies.
11. Cain is a city planner. Cain to build his godless civilization invented the first technology – the city. From now on, all godless civilizations will be urban.
12. Every Cain civilization marks a leaving from patriarchal principles and a violation of the order of sex relations established by God. This is the growth of the influence of women both in society and, first of all, in religion, sometimes it can look like “equality” of men and women, and sometimes as an explicit matriarchy. These are various sexual perversions, trans-sexuality.
13. Cain is marked by a seal or sign from God. Therefore, any person who is faithful to God can clearly recognize a Cainite if even he disguises himself as another. Every civilization outside of the Church has clear distinctive features that indicate its Cain origin.
14. Cain – has the protection given by God against violence from members of the Church. Any struggle against the Cainites and the Cainite civilizations can be waged only by word, spirit, but not by force.
15. Cain’s civilizations always strive for world domination, globalism.
Cain’s civilizations always, sooner or later, degrade and perish, because 1) they are deprived of the support of God, they oppose God, but God is always stronger, 2) they are deprived of food from the earth, but technologies designed to replace this food are constantly becoming obsolete and bring collateral effects that lead to degradation.
The Church lives in a sinful world relying on support from God and on food from the earth. The Church does not need civilizations and technologies. The Church can use civilizations and technologies in its own interests, but does not create its own technologies and civilizations. No Christian civilization is possible. If some civilizations call themselves “Christian”, then this is only a disguise of the Cainites.
The direction of development of all non-church civilizations
The devil got his way by inciting Cain to create a satanic civilization. But problems arose on this way.
Firstly, all the people in the Paradise sinned, but then only Cain sinned. Abel remained faithful and even to death. Over time, other faithful people appeared, and the Church, albeit slowly, grew.
Secondly, Cain was a bad devil worshiper. He was shaking, tormented, crying, etc. Something remained in Cain, which did not allow him to give his person at 100% in devil worship. Even in Cain there was a sphere that the devil had no access to, and although Cain did not use this sphere of the spirit to resist sin, everything immaterial, spiritual, mental that was left from God in him resisted devil worship. Even the Satanic religion of Cain painfully resembled the religion of God, and it looks like Cain was weighed down.
Thirdly, the Cain civilization was rapidly degenerating, maybe even faster than it took time to seduce the remaining faithful people.
And fourthly, the most important thing. Cain’s service to the devil was lean, sour, and perhaps not completely from the heart. Let’s remember Judas – after all, his conscience tortured him. A person is firmly made, so firmly that even with a direct desire to resist God and serve Satan, it does not work outright. It is not such a service the devil wants for himself. One need to serve confidently, without groaning, introspection and throwing. Everything should be joyful, with enthusiasm. In an extreme case, at least, without mental anguish and torment of the mind.
What does the devil do?
The answer is simple – you need to extend matter to the sphere of the spirit, to the sphere where a person is stronger than the devil, where the devil has no power, but only the ability to offer temptations. That is, to push a person to materialize the sphere of spirit, consciousness, thought, to degrade this special sphere of human nature, and then, in a “materialized spirit”, already gain power over a person completely and push him to complete and sincere devil worship without lamenting and crying. It is necessary to modify man, or even to create a new man.
The control system must always be more complex than the control object. And the devil, having a primitive material system that cannot control a person, tries to trivialize and materialize man to make him easier. And since man is “well done”, it takes a lot of work for this purpose. And it is the goal that all civilizations serve.
How to materialize this sphere of spirit and thought inaccessible to the devil? – To give a person a different spirit, “material spirit”, no matter how paradoxical it sounds. It is clear that the spirit itself, the consciousness cannot be material, but it is possible to create an imitation, to replace the true spirit with the material model of the spirit.
And such a model was created. It exists, dominates and develops among humanity. We would call it a modern term – the Matrix. When man’s spirit from God is replaced by a material Matrix – the devil receives the maximum power of influence on a person and a person serves him as sincerely as possible.
The builders of the Tower of Babel speak directly of their main goal. The city, the tower, and the bricks are all done to “make a name” for themselves, that is, to make a new man.
Thus, a new man and a new humanity are created, which outside the Church always represents a technological civilization. But the formation of a new man and civilization/humanity was not easy and it was in several stages.
A brief sense of the Matrix
In short, the Matrix is a certain way of thinking and understanding about God, man and the world, in which the idea of God and man and their interactions are presented not in the form of free loving creative personalities, but in the form of primitive models, which have materialistic, optical character.
To put it simply, in the human spirit, contact with the Truth about personalities occurs in the form of hearing or reading the recorded something heard.
The true knowledge about God, ourselves and the whole world, we can know via hearing. God spoke, and we heard (or read the recorded heard). God tells us about Himself and the world in the form of Revelation, commandments, etc. And we hear/read it.
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom. 10:17). We listen commandments, hear and listen to them, obey or disobey them. And before the Fall of man, only by hearing the Word of God, man cognized himself and the environment.
When the devil wanted to seduce people, he interrupted hearing the Revelation from God by means of doubt. As soon as the first people stopped hearing the Revelation, they immediately begin to rely in knowledge on the vision of the eyes in light, on the optics. “The woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat” (Gen. 3:6). She looked, saw, thought (made a conclusion) and ate it. The revelation of God said that the fruit is dangerous, because God SAID that the fruit is dangerous, but when she stopped listening to God, Eve immediately began to see the fruit, and she saw the fruit wrongly, erroneously, distorted. She saw the dangerous fruit as good in the reflection of optical light. But light is matter. The optical, materialistic vision is followed by the same materialistic representation in the mind and its comprehension. The mind also begins to become optical and material.
A man who is cut off from the hearing of the Revelation of God will always rely on a material optical representation and understanding of himself, God and the world. The devil, is the prince of the world and matter, and therefore the prince of the optically visible, and can present everything in a distorted light: “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14).
What comes out?
1. A man saw and thought about the fruit in a material-optical way, and in this form, the bad fruit seemed good. It is a misconception about the world.
2. Looking at himself, the man saw that he was naked, and was ashamed. What is ashamed of what God created as good (people are good creatures)? They saw the good as bad, and began to hide behind leaves.
3. When the Lord came out to call them, they did not listen to the voices of His Revelation, they thought only about optical visibility. And they hid. They thought that God is just as material, and as the figs themselves cover them, so they decided that they can hide from God in the bushes. That is, they thought of God as materialistically limited, they thought of Him optically in such a way that God supposedly depends on matter, then one can hide from Him! They mistakenly, simplistically and optically presented God. Although before the fall of man, they heard truth about Him from Him.
Immediately after a sin, people begin to rely on a bad instrument of knowledge. It cannot be said that everything that man sees with his eyes and presents in his mind is a complete lie. But since the eyes are material and see everything in the material light, then one can see material issues quite well. But the more complicated and important the question, the more it concerns the supra-material – God, man, the rules of true life, the worse the material eyes see it and the “material” mind thinks.
And God, as a true healer, determined the cause of the disease and its treatment. The most important God’s rule of knowledge for man, says that if what is seen and represented in the mind contradicts what is heard / read from a Revelation from God, then one must rely not on eyes and mind, but on Revelation: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” (Gal 1: 8).
The community of people, representing God according to the heard / read Revelation, forms the Church.
A legitimate question can be posed: why should we believe Revelation, this “book of Middle Eastern myths,” but not believe, for example, science. But look at science. It is constantly changing. What today science proclaims as truth, tomorrow it is considered as delusion; look how the science has discredited itself by wishful thinking.
The Matrix is based on the fact that man renounced Revelation and judged everything from God to the last atom on the basis of his material sensory experience, materialistic representation and understanding in the mind.
The more the Matrix penetrates into the spirit of man, the more it replaces Revelation, the more primitive and perverted models of God, man and the world emerge from people, and the easier it is for man to become a sincere devil worshiper.
There is no need to go far for modern examples. After looking at covid play in the light of Revelation, the whole essence of this event becomes clear.
Matrix development stages
The formation of the Matrix is the meaning of the development of all civilizations.
The development of the Matrix, in which the personality of God and man is represented in the form of material models, occurs in three stages. And this development determines the entire course of the world history.
1. In place of the degenerated Cain civilization comes the era of rational knowledge as well as advanced material technologies. Here, man made himself idols of gods, figures of people from wood and stone. A person bowed to idols, or conjured on figures of people, as their substitutes. Of course, at first, man did not believe that this or that god was wooden, but he perceived the idol as a symbol connecting god and man. During the rituals, the god allegedly get into the idol. There was still a memory that God or man is not just matter.
2. But over time, this memory was forgotten. Then a person replaces the idol, a wooden idol, with eidos – a representation, an image, an ideain his mind. This representation is visual, that is, no less material. The term εἶδος (eidos) means “visible form” deriving from εἴδωλον, idol. Finally, man forgets that the idea/eidos of personality and personality itself are two different things. God the idol is transformed into God the eidos, the idea of God. Now, for a person, reality becomes at least identical to his optical ideas about it. And then the mind’s ideas about reality become even more reliable than reality itself. But all the same, the work of the human materialized mind with endless things, such as a person, constantly confronts the mind with its limitations and weakness. The spirit of man constantly tells people that the Matrix is too weak to adequately reflect reality.
3. Therefore, the third stage of the development of the Matrix becomes. It is an informational stage. In order not to strain the mind with complex questions and dead ends, and therefore not to question the Matrix, the work of the mind is transferred to computers, which, using primitive logical operations, but iterated many times, like from trillions of atoms, from trillions of zeroes and ones, bricks and slims, present a simulated reality to man. The mind no longer needs to work hard and construct countless eidos. If the eidos are already material and make simplified models of Being, then a material machine, in digital form, does it better for a man’s mind. Instead of constant mental work with reality, man receives it already in a form, “digested” by a machine. And although the machine lags far behind the human mind in qualitative terms, – in quantitative terms, that is, in terms of the speed of solving problems, a machine is so superior to a person that, with its primitive solutions, but in huge quantities, it can replace reality with an information simulation.
Man loses the distinction between reality and simulation of reality. Actually, one no longer needs this distinction. To find out what the weather is outside one needs to look out the window. But in digital reality, what one sees outside the window is already less reliably real and useful than what one sees on the weather website. If reality does not coincide with virtual, digital reality, then so much the worse for reality.
The extreme form of the information society is the connection of the human body, brain and machine, and the further connection of all of them into a single information network. Man in this state is ready to accept any religions and bow to anyone, because the Spirit was replaced by a digital material Matrix. That is exactly what the devil needs, because he is the true architect of this Matrix.
How does the understanding of the personality of God and man in Revelation and the various stages of the material Matrix depend? The closer to Revelation and the weaker the Matrix, the more true and deep this understanding. And accordingly, the more difficult it is to bend it. Revelation very clearly and completely shows us both God, man and the devil. The second stage, the stage of eidos, already greatly simplifies everything and allows us to offer various ideas of God in a fairly wide range from deism to pantheism. And the third, digital, informational stage is so shallow and primitive that one can draw any cartoon about God, man, devil or Covid-666 – people will accept everything.
The Bible and the Book of Enoch say that the stage of idols and eidos was adopted by sinful mankind in antediluvian times. A digital Matrix was being prepared to build during the Babylonian pandemonium, but this process was interrupted by God. However, despite the covenants with God and the Sacrifice of Christ, after some time people resumed the Babylonian process, which is now reaching its peak. When the goals of Babylon are achieved, they will begin to build a new attempt at a devil-worshiping civilization (the Beast of Apocalypse), which the first Cain and the Cainites did so badly.
Attention. The essence of the development of devilish civilizations is not to reduce man to his body. These are the ideas of the vulgar materialists. Then it is no longer man, but an animal. The essence of the development of civilizations is to replace the human spirit with a material simulation of the spirit. Outwardly and to man himself, it may seem that his spirit lives, that he is an idealist, etc., but this is only an apparent state. The spirit is replaced by a material digital mechanism, but very sophisticated, which can imitate reality.
Mega-chiasm of biblical history
So, we have presented the common features of all extra-church and therefore satanic civilizations according to the Bible, and have determined the vector of their development. However, each specific civilization has its own distinctive features and its own path of development. The further history of mankind is two parallel lines of development.
Together, these lines form a single historical and chronological picture of the Bible, which is presented in the form of a chiastic structure.
On the one hand, this is the line of development of the Church:
the family of Adam and the descendants of Seth;
Noah, his family and the Ark;
the tribe of Abraham and his descendants (Hebrews);
the people and state of Israel and the law of Moses (Jews);
finally, the universal supranational Church of Christ.
On the other hand, this is a line of development, a series of various forms of satanic civilization in the following order:
the first urban civilization of the Cain family;
the antediluvian civilization of Nephilim;
the Tower of Babel (the development of civilization was suspended by God);
the civilization of the New Babylon – “Babylonian harlot” (he formation of civilization suspended by God is renewed);
the Age of Ten Kingdoms – “Age of Aquarius” (new analog of the civilization of Nephilim);
the Kingdom of the Beast-Antichrist (New Cain).
In general, speaking strictly and concisely, it is better to single out two forms of satanic civilization: Cain and Babylon. The first, Cain, is a religious personalistic civilization, and the second, Babylon, is an atheistic, humanistic, materialistic, impersonal and digital civilization.
The first attempt by Satan to build his kingdom on earth was the civilization of Adam’s son Cain. But man at that time still retained too much from God in himself, and this attempt was unsuccessful: the worship of the devil was not so sincere, and the civilization itself quickly degenerated and degraded.
Therefore, for success, the devil needed to create a new man in whom the divine traits – personality, freedom, creativity, reason, love, craving for God and thirst for Truth – should be maximally dilute and replaced with a digital simulacrum of personality. For this task, the Babylonian civilization was launched.
And only after that, Satan will make a new attempt to create a religious satanocratic civilization, which John calls the Beast, led by the New Cain – the Antichrist.
Let us emphasize again: in this world, the devil and sinful people act along the same path that we have described. This is what God says in the story about Babylon: “And this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do” (Gen. 11: 6).
And here we have a dilemma. On the one hand, God loves the world and people and wants their salvation, on the other hand, people are completely free and may not want this salvation, but build civilizations and eventually perish with this accursed world.
Therefore, God offers people a choice of a way of salvation, other than the devil. God interrupts the construction of Babylon and offers people covenants of salvation, which were accomplished by the Sacrifice of Christ. Some people took this path, and some again took up the devil’s one, continuing the construction of Babylon. People will finish building Babylon, then they will become part of the devilish state and “the church of the Beast”, led by the new Cain – Antichrist.
This periodization is quite enough to understand the general trend in the development of biblical history. However, there are transitional stages between these two variants of civilization.
Between the first Cain and Babylon there is the epoch of Nephilim and between the second Babylon and the second Cain/Antichrist there is a similar epoch of “10 kingdoms”. In principle, these epochs cannot be distinguished as separate, but in view of their brightness and the fact that we live in just at the beginning of the transitional era from the new Babylon to the Antichrist, we decided to single out these eras separately and describe them in more detail.
This means that the model of divine and human history is a mega-chiasm.
A – Creation of heaven and earth
B – Fall of man and the seizure of the world by Satan.
C – (1) Cain Civilization (First Antichrist)
D – (2) Nephilim Civilization (Antediluvian)
E – (3) Tower of Babel Civilization (the First Babylon)
F – (4) Era of Covenants (construction of the Tower of Babel is interrupted)
E’ – (5) Civilization of New Babylon (construction of the Tower of Babel resumes)
D’ – (6) Age of 10 Kingdoms / Age of Aquarius (analogue of the antediluvian age)
C’ – (7) Beast / Antichrist / New Cain Civilization
B’ – Binding of Satan, Millennium Kingdom, Last Judgment, destruction of Satan, evil and sin
A’ – New creation of new heaven and earth
This macro-chiastic model clearly presents the entire scheme of the biblical history and shows its boundaries, basic meaning and laws of development. Chiasm is a parallel description. The Biblical mega-chiasm of the world history shows that the Biblical story is like a scroll, at first it unfolds in stages, reaching the central Era of the Covenants, and then gradually folds.
A – the God’s Creation of heaven and earth, the first macro-event of the biblical history. The last macro event of the biblical history – A’ is also a Creation, but a New Creation of the new heaven and earth. It will be when, according to the Apocalypse, the world history will end.
C – the second macro-event of the history – the fall of man, as a result of which Satan seizes power over the world and gets the opportunity to strongly influence people. B’ is the penultimate macro-event of the history, during which Satan is expelled and captured. That is, in fact, these are similar events, but with different signs: B is the defeat and seizure of the world by the devil, B’ is the victory and liberation of the world from the devil.
Before the Era of the Covenants, three global diabolical civilizations were unfolding in the world: C – the first Cain civilization, D – the Nephilim era, E – the Babylonian pandemonium. This process was temporarily interrupted by God by offering people salvation by the Covenants and Christ. Some accepted His plan of salvation, while others rejected these covenants and rushed to help the devil to resume the construction of global satanic civilizations. This happens in the mirror order: they start with E’ – the resumption of the construction of Babylon (the era of New Babylon or the Babylonian Harlot), then D’ – the Ten Kingdoms era (the new era of Nephilim or the Age of Aquarius), and then C’ – the civilization of New Cain – the Antichrist and the Beast of the Apocalypse.
Let’s consider each of these civilizations in detail.
C – The First Cain
What are the specific features of the civilization of the First Cain (the civilization, headed by the Cain family), in contrast to others?
General characteristics. Cain is the first conscious Antichrist. He deliberately rejects God’s way of salvation, which leads to Christ and builds the first satanic civilization.
Relation to religion. The first Cain civilization is a strictly religious civilization. Everything in it is subject to religion.
Kind of religion, what is God? It is a pure monotheistic religion, but perverted, in relation to the religion of the true God. Cainites imitate the true religion; instead of God they have Satan, instead of good – evil.
Attitude towards alternatives to its religion. No religious tolerance, no polytheism, no deviation from a single canon. It is enmity with alternative religions and views.
Soteriology. The Cainites feel uncomfortable in their own devilish civilization. They tremble, moan, and cry, they have an increased sense of danger. But they do not find salvation from this.
Personality state. Despite the beginning of the degradation of the consciousness of the Cainites, the high significance of the personality is still preserved – the personality of God, man, ruler. The First Cain’s civilization is based on personal relationships.
Sex and its meaning. Until its last period, the Cain civilization was patriarchal.
Blood and its meaning. The importance of the meaning of blood and lineage of the ruler. For the civilization of the First Cain, the key was that it was ruled by the direct descendants of Cain, and when the family of Cain was cut short, the civilization ended.
The nature of technology is socio-religious technology designed to maximize religion.
A distinctive sign of civilization. The Cain’s mark.
D – Nephilim Civilization
So, the civilization of the First Cain ended with the interruption of his bloodline, and the new civilization began with a technological revolution and, most importantly, with the new role of women. Let’s consider this in detail.
Tubalcain’s sister Naamah was “attractive, very beautiful”. Here is what the Bible describes further: “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose” (Gen. 6:1,2).
There are two opinions about who “the sons of God” are. One is that the sons of God are angels, and the second is that “the sons of God” are the sons of Seth.
We mean that “the sons of God” are angels. The idea that these were the sons of Seth arose in the Jewish environment and then some Christians adopted it. We believe that the spread of this theory is the machination of the devil to distort the true meaning of Scripture and biblical history.
Let us briefly list the arguments confirming that we are talking about angels.
1. The Septuagint unambiguously translates this as angels.
2. In the book of Job, “the sons of God” are angels.
3. There is an apocryphal book of Enoch, where “the sons of God” are angels and the apostles refer to this book: the Apostle Jude quotes a fragment from there and calls it a prophecy.
4. Almost all Christian authors of the first two centuries were of the opinion that “the sons of God” are angels.
Let’s continue: “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown” (Genesis 6: 4).
So, the matriarchy that arose in the civilization of the First Cain led to its decline and transformation into a new one. Now we know who could be the father of the children of Lamech’s wives, and for whom was the beauty of Tubalcain’s sister Naamah. It is important to note that the angels did not just mate with the earthly Cainite beauties, but took them as wives.
According to the patriarchal order, a woman of her own free will could not get married without the permission of her father or guardian. But the matriarchy of the Cainite women lifted these restrictions, and women could marry at will. The fact that women came into contact and relationships with angels suggests that women also adopted religious functions previously available only to men.
The violation of the divine order led to the fact that as a result of such unnatural marriages, unnatural offspring were born. All cultures of the world preserved the memory of these events in the form of myths about heroes and giants, people of very tall stature and great strength – the children of “gods” and people.
The Nephilim נְפִילִים (plural) is the product of a mixture of humans and angels. In the Greek Septuagint, נְפִילִים is translated as Γίγαντες or the singular Γίγας.
Giants in Greek mythology are very large, strong, wild, unbridled creatures. Let’s just say that giants are not a translation of “Nephilim”. The use of the term “giants” by the Hebrew translators into Greek can only be explained by the influence of the Book of Enoch, in which the Nephilim are presented as very tall and fierce beings. Obviously, they chose the most capacious term for understanding by the Greek reader, but did not set out to make a literal translation.
Following the Septuagint, in many languages (starting with the Latin Vulgate, and translated from Hebrew), when translating the Bible, terms such as “giants” were used. Even in the Russian Synodal Bible, translated from Hebrew, the word “giants” is also used.
However, what does the Hebrew word Nephilim נְפִילִים mean? It comes from the root נָפַל nafal, which means to fall or toss. Hence there is a popular translation of the Nephilim as “fallen” in recent years. However, although the literal translation may be correct, in the sense of the Nephilim they cannot be “fallen”. After all, an angel or a person can be fallen – initially both angels and people were pure, holy, but then they fell and became fallen. But the Nephilim could not fall, for from their conception they were already wicked and corrupted. The Nephilim did not have initial holiness, and therefore could not fall.
The Bible itself provides the key to the problem. There is sometimes a single root word for נְפִילִים – נָ֫פֶל nephel, which means miscarriage. What does modern science tell us about miscarriages? – This is a spontaneous pathological termination of pregnancy due to pathological genetic changes in the fetus. A mutation occurs in the fetus; the woman’s body recognizes this and throws out the mutating fetus. Therefore, since a term close in meaning to a miscarriage was applied to these creatures in the Bible, the Nephilim will most accurately be translated into modern language as mutants.
“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them” (Gen. 6: 5-7).
God evaluated this situation extremely negatively, and so much, so that He decided to destroy all earth creatures. As a result of the actions of angels and Cainites, human nature was damaged both genetically and spiritually. The apocryphal “Book of the Jasher” claims that animals have also undergone genetic change. The Torah does not give details of those events. But these details are given by the book of Enoch.
Two hundred angels were seduced by the beauty of earthly women and wanted children from them. They deliberately committed this sin and Enoch gives the names of their 17 leaders.
“And they have gone to the daughters of men upon the earth, and have slept with the women, and have defiled themselves” (Enoch CHAPTER IX:8). Enoch clarifies that the angels not only got married to earthly women into marriage, but also simply slept with them. Here is the answer who was the father of the children of Lamech’s wives.
“And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones” (Enoch CHAPTER VII: 2-5). Before the Flood, the first people were forbidden to eat meat, but then corruption reached the point that Nephilim mutants killed and devoured people and even their own kind. Murder has become commonplace. Human genetic modification and hybridization has led the earth to complete disaster.
There were only a few faithful people left in the world. Among them was Enoch, who was forced to hide.
However, the genetic corruption of humanity was only the first step. Humanity was corrupted spiritually as well: “the angels who have connected themselves with women, and their spirits assuming many different forms are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to demons as gods” (Enoch CHAPTER XIX: 1). Angels took on different forms and thus seduced people to polytheism, that is, paganism. Paganism, polytheism is an invention of the Nephilim era. Degradation of Cain’s Satanism to primitive paganism takes place.
Angels taught people “charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants” (Enoch CHAPTER VII: 1). “Semjâzâ taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, Armârôs the resolving of enchantments, Barâqîjâl, [paragraph continues] (taught) astrology, Kôkabêl the constellations, Ezêqêêl the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiêl the signs of the earth, Shamsiêl the signs of the sun, and Sariêl the course of the moon” (Enoch CHAPTER VIII: 2). In the same era, mankind learns witchcraft, occultism, astrology and esotericism.
The fact of humanity’s perception of natural magic, spells, fortune-telling tells us about the progressive degradation of human thought. The idea of conjuring a Deity or man is that the idea that for an infinite personality it is possible to find some kind of control buttons. It means of a complete loss of an adequate meaning of personality. Personalities are still present in thinking, but they are already greatly simplified and materialized. For the same reason, humanity easily perceives polytheism, paganism – after all, the primitive personalities of the gods are easy to “clone”.
“And Azâzêl taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures.2. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways” (Enoch CHAPTER VIII: 1-2). And in the same era, a real technological revolution is taking place, people get access to a whole array of technologies.
As in the case of the First Cain civilization, the earth cries out to God that it can no longer bear such wickedness and blood. And if in the case of Cain, Cain remains alive, but becomes cursed from the earth, then in the case of the Nephilim civilization, there is already nothing to curse from, everything has long been cursed. All civilization and its entire world will be destroyed by the Flood.
Summary. The civilization of the Nephilim (as well as its future counterpart – the Age the Ten Kingdoms), like any devilish civilization, having a general satanic and godless character, has the following features in comparison with the civilizations of the First Cain:
General characteristics. The Nephilim civilization was the first civilization to encroach on the remaking of man and God from the inside, from their nature. (Cain was remaking man only from the outside, changing social reality). The Nephilim civilization was the first civilization to encroach on the remaking of the basis of religiosity.
Relation to religion. The strict religious-centered nature of the civilization of the First Cain changes to a mixed type, where in the center, next to religion, there are already people and serving their desires.
Kind of religion, what is God? Paganism, polytheism, religious diversity, esotericism, occultism, philosophy, technology.
Attitude towards alternatives to religion. Religious tolerance, sometimes turning into enmity.
Soteriology. The fruitless search for salvation, begun by the Cainites, continues. But physical fear is added to psychological despair and fear – the Nephilim begin to devour people and each other.
Personality state. Degradation of personality in the minds of people, the process of depersonalization of God and man begins. The place of personalities is gradually being taken by impersonal and materialistic ideas.
Sex and its meaning. Matriarchy. Instead of the degrading Cain patriarchy, women are taking over religious power.
Blood and its meaning. Man is being changed biologically (through mixing with angels).
The nature of technology – very highly developed and extensive occult and material technologies.
A distinctive sign of civilization. Matriarchy, simplification of personality and human genetic modifications.
God destroys the Nephilim civilization in the Flood. But its satanic spirit did not disappear.
E – The First Babylon
Noah’s descendants resettled and multiplied throughout the earth. However, the spirit of Cain is obstinate. A new form of civilization begins, which is presented in the Bible as the construction of the Tower of Babel. We note that this project was not fully implemented, but even its initial stage looks impressive.
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth” (Gen. 11: 1-9).
“the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech”, literally from Hebrew – “one lip and one words” (word – davar דָּבַר ).
A feature of Hebrew is that the basis of word formation is verbs and verbal roots. For example, “speak in words” is דָּבַר , and the “word”, respectivelyדָּבָר .
In the book Genesis for the meaning “pronounce, say” up to the Flood always, and after the Flood in most cases the word amar אָמַר is used. There is also a derivative noun “speech, word, appeal” emer אֵ֫מֶר.
Davar is used much less frequently. What is the difference between amar and davar?
The etymology of amar אָמַר comes from the meaning of “declare”, “show”, “make prominent, forward”. That is, it is not just to make a sound – here we are dealing with a change in the status of being (transferring from non-being into being). That is why in phrases like “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Gen. 1: 3) אָמַר amar is used. This is tremendous power. Something was undeclared, non-existent, but became declared, shown, acting, existing.
Concerning “to speak in words” דָּבַר davar and, accordingly, “word” דָּבָר , the meanings of this root are chase, drive out, fly out one by one, bee (דְּבוֺרָה ). Unlike the abstract and non-material amar אָמַר , davar is something concrete, material, something that can, for example, fly out of the mouth. To speak in words is to throw something (sounds) out. It is interesting that the Greek λέγω (to speak) has a similar etymology, and λόγος (word) derived from it, that is, to collect, recruit, place and also has a material connotation. Moreover, the word אָמַר davar is sometimes used in the Bible to denote a deed.
In the Torah, before the story of the Flood, we do not see a usage of דָּבָר davar. Why? Perhaps in the beginning, people still had some kind of special communication between themselves and with God, without the use of conceptual thinking and words. However, with the development of sin, a person began to rely more and more on his mind damaged by matter and to form a specific vocabulary of words and concepts for cognition and communication; that is, a person began to form an intellectual verbal model of things. Words have become only dead semantic forms, in which nothing is left of the personal. It is precisely such a dead, narrow instrument that could no longer serve either pure communion with God or true knowledge of being. It could only serve to simplify, to play down, and to belittle.
After the Flood, God himself for the first time addresses Noah precisely in words, דָּבָר davar: “And God spake דָּבַר unto Noah, saying אָמַר: Go forth of the ark” (Genesis 8:15). Something has changed. Man needs words דָּבַר in order to understand utterance אָמַר.
It gives us an important sign of the changing the mindset. It was the formation of a conceptual verbal thinking. It made possible for events to develop further.
We have already mentioned that in the era of Nephilim there was a shift from a concrete-personal understanding of people and God to an abstract-conceptual one. And in the era of the First Babylon, this transition is finally carried out. It was the presence of such a language and way of thinking that allowed them to launch their project.
“Journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there“. The East in the sacred geography of the Bible is where Christ-God will come from. East is one of the names of God. Therefore, when Cain sinned, he did not want to repent and began to run away, he ran to the East – against the direction of the coming of God, against God he went. The Babylonian builders came from the East. They consciously or not imitate God, bringing people something divine. What do they bring to people, commensurate in meaning with the divine? – They bring to humanity a new technological invention – a digital Matrix.
But who are “they”?
“And they said one to another… And they said…“. The story of the tower builders begins rather strangely. Naming people in the Bible is the most important thing. Man is usually called – “man”, “woman”, his own “first” name, “son”, “daughter”, “father”, “mother”, sometimes by office (“priest”, “king”), etc. Moreover, depending on the naming of people, it is possible to derive whole interpretations about the meaning of this or that event. And here, they are called only “they“, and they call themselves “we“. This is nonsense for the Bible. The naming of a person, especially his own name, is the most important attribute of a personality, which tells us of its entire completeness. The name is not just a label to distinguish one from the other; the name in the Bible is the essence of the person.
And here it is said as unnamed as possible. This says only one thing – we are dealing with the most degraded personalities. God is a Person and man, is a person. But with sin, with the deepening of the abyss between man and God, the divine in man – personality, is diminished. With the death of the personality, a person turns into a zombie or a robot. We are dealing here with extremely degraded people, thinking in narrow concepts and communicating in a primitive conceptual materialistic language, who, however, coming from the East, bring the world some kind of imitation of salvation.
In the story about the builders of the Tower there are no personalities, neither human, nor God, nor angels, nor the devil. Adam, Noah were serving a personal God. Cain-personality began to serve the devil-personality and resist God-personality and thus laid the foundation of religious Satanism. During the Nephilim era, both personality and religion were greatly degraded, but they still existed. At the builders of Babylon, we do not even hear the word “man” or something connected with a man (son, father, brother, king, leader, etc.) and do not hear the word God or the devil. There are no men, women, patriarchy, matriarchy. The builders of Babylon do not even have a hint of personality or religion.
The descendants of Noah became spiritually ill, lost contact with God, almost lost themselves as persons, but feeling that something was wrong, they decided to replace all this (God, personality, salvation) with something else, but with what?
“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth”.As we have already learned, any civilization is necessarily urban. And the builders of Babylon are also trying to build a city for themselves, but not just a city, but a world civilization. They offer their project to the whole world. Moreover, the city of Cain and Babylon are very different.
Most of the interpretations of the biblical text about the Babylonian pandemonium are a description of the construction of a specific architectural structure – a tower. However, everything is much more complicated. Nobody built any tower. Everything was much bigger, more radical and more terrible.
Let’s read the Hebrew text literally וּמִגְדָּל֙ וְרֹאשׁ֣וֹ בַשָּׁמַ֔יִם – The first word is מִגְדָּל . The traditional understanding means “tower”. However, let’s pay attention to the literal meaning of the word. It comes from the root גָּדַל “becoming big”. That is, literally it is probably not a tower, but something big: ” the tremendous”, “grandeur”. Probably the meaning of this word “tower” was given later and is secondary. The next word וְרֹאשׁ֣וֹ (רֹאשׁ ) rosh is head (human, animal) or the beginning. The first word of the Bible “Bereshit” is “in the beginning”, from the root רֹאשׁ rosh. And the third word is בַשָּׁמַ֔יִם “in Heaven”, in the angelic world and in the place where God is. That is, the literal translation is: “something grandiose with a beginning in the Divine Heaven”. They build their “tower” not from earth to heaven, but on the contrary – from the divine Heaven to the earth. That is they wanted to build the “New Earth” (Rev. 21:1) promised by God to people after the end of this world in the distant future, but to build here and now, on this earth by their own forces, without God. The Babylonians wanted to build a world civilization in the form of an imitation of the Kingdom of God on earth. Of course, there is no talk of any tower made of ordinary building materials.
“Let us make us a name”. And now attention, this phrase is the most important moment that reveals the meaning of the history of the development of all civilizations. So people have become much degraded as individuals. They have no names, no God, no devil. They are insignificant, they are simply “they“. But these are still people, and something gnaws at them inside, does not give them rest. They yearn for salvation. Therefore, they go from the East, carrying a divine mission for themselves and the world. The essence of this mission is to make a name for themselves. The Unnamed wanted a Name for themselves. Once upon a time God gave man a name, and God and only God as Creator could give man a name. But people, through falling away from God, almost lost this name, and so they decided to find a new name for themselves, to make it for themselves, without God.
The name is a very important and meaningfully deep phenomenon in the Bible and is actually the essence, the nature of what is named. Already in the antediluvian era, people were trying to change their nature. They agree to hybridization with angels, receive a new religion and new knowledge. But these are half measures. Not everyone went for the hybridization of the body, not everyone accepted the change in worldview, consciousness and ways of thinking. And then it was about the modification of man already created by God, his body and spirit.
In the era of the First Babylonian civilization, people want not only to change or improve, but to do it anew. Moreover, the Babylonians want to make a new man, but there is no talk of a new God, a new religion. They don’t need it. Man has replaced both God and religion.
Not being able to create from nothing בָּרָא or even to call קָרָא – they makeעָשָׂה a name for themselves, which means that there is something from which they want to make themselves. How, from what were the Babylonians going to make a new man?
“And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter“. The builders of Babylon run the risk of building a new world and a new man from primitive binary material elements. It is difficult to think of something simpler and more primitive than brick and slime. What is brick as opposed to stone? – it is completely handmade, made by man, and it has the same standardized form. The builders of Babylon are inventing a hitherto unseen technology – to “make” reality with the help of atomized primary elements: bricks and slime, “0” and “1”. The builders of Babylon decided to build for themselves a man and a world as a digital system.
But we understand that from such a primitive neither a body, nor a spirit for a man can be made. Nothing like God’s creation in real life with the help of the binary material code brick-slime, “1” – “0” could be “done”. We have not in vain put the word “do” in quotes. They cannot make a new man.
But they are doing something. What do they do then? We have already called the goal of any diabolical civilization project – “material Matrix”. Why is that? The Matrix is a model. A model is a system, a holistic mechanism that serves to represent, imitate some reality. That is, the Matrix is a virtual reality, or in other words, a simulation of reality. The Babylonians, in principle, can neither make nor renew the world and man (only God can do this), and instead they can only offer a trick, a model, an imitation, a simulation of renewal, that is, something like the Matrix. So they finally decided this Matrix, which began under Cain, and developed under the Nephilim, to bring it to the limit and perfection.
Who is the unsub of the construction of Babylon, the Matrix, who controls all of this? After all, the Bible emphasizes to us all the impersonality and vagueness of the unsub of construction. After all, people have become so degraded that they have turned into a swarm of bees. The swarm is controlled by a queen bee, which is far from easy to see behind all that buzzing swarm.
But we are already a little experienced beekeepers. Since the Matrix is based on matter, it is ruled by the Prince of matter, the devil. The civilizations of sinful people are forced to use technology, first for physical life, and then for mental life. But technologists are always material and hence the replacement of mental activity is also material.
But for the time being, no one will say this true essence of the Matrix. Everybody talk about “collective intelligence” or “artificial intelligence”. But this is all crap – it was not the collective intelligence that introduced the insane quarantine. The Matrix (“artificial intelligence”) is the devil as a system, as a manifestation of the devil’s maximum power over matter. The devil cannot create a new world, he can only offer an imitation of it. And the people of Babylon adopt it.
So, the main distinguishing features of the Babylonian form of devilish civilization:
General characteristics. The global civilization is built from primitive material elements according to the principle of simulation (and by no means creation) of reality in the form of a digital Matrix.
Relation to religion. Lack of religion.
Kind of religion, what is God? Atheism. Instead of God – man, instead of religion – the ideology of humanism.
Attitude towards alternatives to religion. Contempt, secularization.
Soteriology. Since salvation is impossible without God, a virtual simulation of salvation is proposed instead of salvation.
Personality state. The Personality of Godhead and man disappear and are replaced by abstract materialistic digital models.
Sex and its meaning. Absence of mentions of genders and sexual relations: sex does not matter, equality.
Blood and its meaning. Irrelevant.
The nature of technology. System. Information technology, IT.
A distinctive sign of civilization. Digit, mechanism, virtual reality.
It is important to note here that the First Babylon was never fully completed; God intervened in the construction process. The same cannot be said about the second Babylon that will be built.
F – Age of Covenants
“And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound…“
God speaks the most important thought. Building a global Babylon cannot be avoided. As long as people, are sick with sin, they will not give up and will endlessly continue trying to build Babylon.
The Second thought – God determines the most important factor contributing to the construction of Babylon: this is communication between people. As soon as people establish communication with each other, the Babylonian construction begins. As you can see, language is the most important tool that determines the existence of this world, and globalization is one of the most important vectors of development. It is impossible to escape the first Babylon. But what to do? How to save humanity without destroying it?
“let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city”
The only way out is to slow down the inevitable. To do this, God takes four steps:
God mixes peoples by giving them different languages and thereby disrupting their communication. But we know – if people live side by side, or together, even having different languages, they will quickly make contact, create dictionaries, learn to speak each other’s languages and start building again, so the next step;
Scattering of people over the earth. People need to be geographically separated from each other. This will make it difficult for them to communicate. However, people will want to trade, communicate. Travelers, traders will appear, conquests will begin, and globalization will grow again. Therefore, God takes one more step;
Division of the earth. Once a single continent of Pangea, was separated by seas, oceans, straits, mountains and deserts. God changes the geography of the earth, making the connection between nations very difficult. The name in the genealogy Peleg tells us about this: “And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg פָּ֫לֶג; for in his days was the earth divided פָּלַג (palag)” (Gen. 10:25). The words describing the division of the earth in the Bible are mentioned quite often. Most often חָלַק khalak: “Notwithstanding the land shall be divided חָלַק by lot” (Num. 26: 55). But in Babylonian history, a fundamentally different word is used – פָּלַג palag. This very rare word is mentioned four times in the Bible. Twice when describing the genealogy of Peleg (Gen. 10:25 and 1 Chronicles 1:19), once in Psalm 54. These mentions in context all relate to Babylonian history and give us little in understanding its meaning. But one more time it is mentioned in the book of Job: “Whoפָּלַג hath divided (or, better to say, cuts) a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder…” (Job 38:25). That is, this word means to cut with something, precisely with waters. For example, the word “divide” the water so that it parted (as it was during the exodus of the Jews from Egypt) is used in the Bible specifically for another בָּקַע baka. That is, to divide the water is בָּקַע baka, and to divide by means of the water is פָּלַג palag. That is, the name Peleg tells us that the earth was not just divided between peoples for habitation, but the earth itself, was geographically divided by water barriers – seas, oceans, straits, rivers.
However, we know that a sinful man will eventually overcome all these obstacles and Babylon will begin again.
Therefore, the Lord goes to the fourth, most important step – the creation of the Church as a special people of God and a number of covenants with this people. Between the first and the second Babylon there were about three thousand years of time, which God used to prepare the coming of the Savior and the creation of a Christian church, which is not afraid of Babylon.
And the era of covenants is coming to the world. God makes a covenant with Abraham, then with Moses, then with Christians. At this time, there are no global Satan projects, but there are many local ones. In our further article about the Beast of Apocalypse, we wrote about six heads of the beast – as six local, but very large-scale civilizational projects of the devil on the earth, the last of which was the Roman Empire.
Christ with his Death and Resurrection inflicted a mortal wound on the Beast. Some accepted the sacrifice of Christ, while others, on the contrary, rushed to heal the wound to the Beast. And after a certain time, world history returns to the Cain’s path.
E’ – New Babylon
After that, as the first Babylon was destroyed and the era of the covenants ended, the second stage of the apocalyptic history become. It starts from the point at which the first stage ended and then unfolds in a mirror image. The sons of the devil begin to collect the scattered Babylon around the world and across cultures in the global New Babylon – the Babylonian harlot. Now we are at the final stage of the construction of Babylon.
In the époque of the Renaissance, the idea arises to revive global Babylon. This Babylon was based on the Jewish interpretation of the “wisdom” of ancient Babylon – Kabbalah. Kabbalah proposed to change priorities from God, from the Heaven to this earthly world, and here in this world to build their own paradise based on numerical matrix modeling, as the builders of the first Tower of Babel have already tried to do. God and religion began to fade, and in their place comes the ideology of earthly man (humanism, atheism, rationalism, materialism).
It was then that geographical discoveries and the creation of world empires began;
then a unified communication system, financial system, and the Internet were created;
world languages appear, which almost everyone knows and finally computer translation.
We have been living in the second Babylon for a long time, rather at its very end.
As in the time of the first Babylon, when people who refused to listen to the Revelation from God, lost their personality: their own and God’s, and then instead of their personality they decided to build a global digital system, so during the Second Babylon, people again abandoned the religion of Revelation, replacing it with digital constructions, in which the personality is blurred, and man, God and the world are presented in the form of mechanisms.
Just as once the builders of the first Babylon wanted to make a new man, relying on a digital model of being, so the builders of New Babylon, relying on a digital Kabbalistic matrix, erect a mechanistic person into the world as the center of being.
So, after several centuries of development, by the end of the twentieth century, a global secular, materialistic and consumer civilization, led by the United States, emerges in the world. This is the first global project since the Babylonian Pandemonium. Its global, atheistic and materialistic character makes it possible to unite each person into a single economic, political, infrastructural, information system. In the Revelation of John, this project is called Babylon the Great or the Babylonian harlot.
In more detail about New Babylon, John writes in the Apocalypse:
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration” (Rev.17: 1-18).
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies… And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.. … Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!” (Rev.18: 1-19).
The second Babylon is a Whore Woman sitting on the devil. With her shame and consumerism, she covers, disguises the devil. The Babylonian Whore is certainly a devilish civilization, but the religious aspect is hidden by her material consumerism. The Harlot is dressed in purple (a symbol of political power) and fine linen (a symbol of religion) – and politics and religion in New Babylon are all subject only to money.
So we mean that the modern world system, led by the United States, is the New Babylon. Why?
1. Because the modern world civilization is global for the first time since the Tower of Babel
2. Because the modern civilization is non-religious and based on materialism, digital technology, depersonalization, money and consumption.
3. Because its heart is the USA, it is the first country in the world in which ideology is based not on religion, but on money and consumption.
The features of New Babylon are similar to those of the Babylonian pandemonium. However, Babylon already has an alternative – the Church.
Humanity after the new Babylon is in a miserable spiritual state. Even among Christians, adequate ideas about their own religion have been lost. The language of the Bible is forgotten. Christianity as a religion has become a mixture of superstition, charity, and a center for moralizing.
What can we say about non-Christians, whose spiritual, rational search for truth has atrophied, and the truth has been abolished, replacing all this with clip thinking and emotions. No purpose other than consumption. The meaning disappeared, complete disorientation.
Replacing spiritual foundations with simulation of man’s spirit led to the fact that people can be easily deceived and convinced of anything. The clearest example illustrating the results of the work of Babylon (playing on emotions – and pushing for absurd actions) is coronavirus Fakedemia. The whole world, armed with advanced science, global communications and technologies, was easily and primitively deceived and brought into a state of submission. Here are the fruits of Babylon. It is a “new man” with a Matrix spirit.
Even Christians not only do not perform commandment to leave Babylon Whore: “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Rev. 18:4), but they take an active part in her affairs.
D’ – New Era of Nephilim, Age of Ten Kingdoms or Age of Aquarius
The next stage is the Ten Kingdoms, an analogue of the Nephilim civilization – which is most often now called the Age of Aquarius.
Babylon by the will of God will be destroyed by ten kingdoms that previously sat under this Babylon and enjoyed it, but then hated it. But soon they will give their power to another world global kingdom – the kingdom of Satan/Beast/Antichrist (see chapter 13 of the Apocalypse). This kingdom, unlike New Babylon, will be extremely religious.
John in the Apocalypse writes about these events: “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled” (Rev.17: 16,17).
Let’s analyze this: “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast” (Rev.17: 12). That is, ten kingdoms will destroy Babylon the Great, but they will not use their power for a long time “one hour” and then they will transfer this power to the Beast.
Ten kingdoms will destroy Babylon for a reason, but because God is so decided. That is, the collapse of the modern global consumer civilization was conceived by God. Ten kingdoms will spend a short era of religious revival – the Age of Aquarius, and then transfer power to the Beast.
It is written that the ten kingdoms will not just destroy the Babylonian civilization.
1) They make her desolate – which is actually happening at the moment. The ten kingdoms are ruining Babylon.
2) They make her naked – that is, they will reveal all her shame, all her deception – they will disgrace her to the whole world.
3) They eat her flesh – what remains of her ruin will be taken away by these ten kingdoms.
4) They burn her with fire – there will not be limited to ruin, shame and robbery, but there will be total destruction by fire (big war).
In addition, there is another quote: “And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all” (Rev.18: 21). That is, Babylon will be destroyed very quickly, swiftly and even unexpectedly.
Preparations for the dismantling of New Babylon began in the 60s of the XX century in the form of three civilizational breakdowns:
I. Proclamation of the Postmodern era. At the philosophical level the emasculation and dismantling of rationality, a holistic picture of the world, the meaning of life, good and evil, progress is made. Postmodern proclaims the absence of rational meaning and purpose as such. With such a breakdown, the usual attributes of modernity such as art, education, science are discredited and enter a period of decline.
II. In place of destroyed rationalism, a mythological, occult, pseudo-pagan worldview is implanted. Gary Potter comes instead of Solaris. Religious fundamentalism, ecumenism, superstition, neo-Marxism, traditionalism, etc. are actively reviving.
III. And finally, the actual dismantling of the New Babylon in technical and economic terms occurs through the stop of the old technological progress and the launch of a new one.
The political process of dismantling Babylon began with a solemn ritual on September 11, 2001, and is still going on in various forms and will continue. After all, the economic crisis will be accompanied by wars and other cataclysms for a long time.
Babylon acted in two stages: the first is oblivion, “killing God”, and the second is the replacement of Him with a material godless Matrix. The Age of Aquarius only changes the ideology of this Matrix from atheistic and materialistic to a pseudo-religious one.
The goal of the new Era of Aquarius is to prepare a new humanity with a spirit simulated by the Matrix to meet the Antichrist and accept the Beast. Materialized, digitalized, and secularized by the new Babylon, humanity now needs to be channeled into a religious track. Such a modified humanity, in contrast to the times of Cain, will already be able to selflessly and confidently serve the devil, and indeed accept any cartoon as a religious worship.
The main difference between the Age of Aquarius and New Babylon is the direction to change a person. Babylon also wanted to modify man, but through changing the world, building a “tower”. Babylon made a new man by means of benefits and pleasures. Babylon changed the consciousness of a person by external being.
The Age of Aquarius is exclusively interested in direct change, human modification. It changes man immediately, from inside, from the nature, it does not build a tower, it is not particularly interested in the outside world at all.
For example, Babylon offered sexual perversion to man as a means of obtaining pleasure. Babylon said: try homosexuality and get new impressions. The Age of Aquarius says: become a homosexual (feminist, transsexual, progressive, transpersonalist) because this is the norm or even a better human condition than a natural one. Change yourself and your nature.
According to the Bible, a person should rule over his nature and even change it. Babylon said that you should not go against nature and you need to indulge your damaged nature. The Age of Aquarius says the same thing as Christianity: rule your nature, only in the opposite direction than Christianity. This is the beginning of the perverted religion of the next era. If homosexuals in Babylon are perverts, then in the Age of Aquarius they are mutants, “neo-nephilim”.
What are the main features of the antediluvian Nephilim era? – matriarchy and human genetic modifications, multi-religious and technomagic.
Matriarchy. We are now witnessing a real psychosis and a powerful campaign to impose matriarchy in the world. Feminism has become one of the most influential movements. Also in the world there is a real boom in the propaganda of various sexual perversions and attempts at genetic modification of a person.
Multi-religiousness. Collapsing consumer society under the guise of fighting for the environment, social justice, COVID etc. Impoverishment of the population. Propagation of esotericism, mythology, fantasy, religion. Provocations of the global crisis, the thrust of humanity into an atmosphere of fear and helplessness and thus push towards religion. New “Middle Ages”.
Technomagic. Genetic and electronic transformations of man, designed to contribute to the development of a religious society. Just as Cain invented a religious city and civilization, so in the era of Aquarius they come up with a global religious transpersonal humanity.
What is the essence of the old, modern technological paradigm? Technologies are developed and implemented as quickly as possible to ensure maximum real matter consumption of goods and services by people. More and better food, clothing, shelter, transportation, etc.
However, from the beginning of the 60s of the twentieth century, this technical progress was artificially stopped. Over the past 60 years, not a single innovation has appeared that radically changes the consumer life of a person. In reality, only two technological areas have emerged – genetic engineering and information technology. However, both in their philosophical paradigm and in the peculiarities of development, these technologies are already strikingly different.
The influence of IT is radically different from the influence of all other discoveries of the last 600 years. All discoveries earlier contributed to greater and better consumption of real, mostly material goods by people. IT provides little real benefits. This technology gives people an imitation of the consumption of goods instead of the goods themselves. This technology simulates the reality of goods. Why should we travel if you can see everything on the internet and read from bloggers. Why a living woman when you can buy a rubber doll. Why reality, if it can be replaced by simulation.
Genetic engineering has a similar purpose. Not to improve and increase consumption, but fundamentally change the “consumer” himself through human genetic changes.
That is, we have two technomagic technologies that can be compared with the era of the Nephilim and which change creation at a deep, ontological level: people and other living organisms change radically at the biological level, and on the other hand, the nature of reality as such changes, the Matrix reaches its peak. These technologies are eventually combined into a single technomagic conglomerate, which today is commonly called transpersonalism, and closer to the last times will be called “the Beast”.
Why did we use the term “technomagic”? Because the modern, “enlightened” science and technology that we studied at school is long gone. Everything stopped and died 50 years ago.
All modern “scientific and technical” novelties such as a hadron collider, a quantum computer, artificial intelligence, a chip in the brain are technomagical artifacts such as a magic retort, or a black mirror, or a Golem, which act not according to the principle of Newton’s laws, but through the demons that have taken over them: “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads…” (Revelation 13: 14-16).
Features of the Age of Aquarius – Ten Kingdoms:
General characteristics. The transition from an atheistic New Babylon to a new religious civilization.
Relation to religion. The role of religions is increasing, the values of Babylon are gradually losing influence.
Kind of religion, what is God? There is a great variety of them, but the process of their unification begins. Ecumenism.
Attitude towards alternatives to religion. More often tolerant, although hostility is not uncommon.
Soteriology. Through artificial crises in the world, the thirst for salvation is fueled.
Personality state. An attempt to revive the personality in an ersatz form based on the digital matrix. A kind of digital personality simulation. Transpersonalism.
Sex and its meaning. The growing importance of sex issues and matriarchy. Sex is becoming one of the most important tools for changing human nature: sexual perversion, transsexuality.
Blood and its meaning. The dramatic rise in the value of blood and body is an attempt to create a new body using genetic engineering. Attempts to connect the computer and the brain.
The nature of technology is information and biotechnology, the revival of technomagic.
A distinctive sign of civilization. Emphasis on spirituality and traditionalism.
C’ – New Cain
The time will come when the Age of Aquarius will fall to a crisis – and in order to overcome fear, despair and receive “salvation”, it will be proclaimed the “return” to a single ecumenical religion, to foundations, patriarchy, traditions, the authority, finally to the personality, only in its specific form. And at the head of all this will be the new Cain – Antichrist (as an analogue of the New Adam – Christ).
After the New Babylon replaces the human spirit with a digital material Matrix, and during the Age of Aquarius this Matrix will be reprogrammed from atheism, materialism and consumerism to religious consciousness, two Beasts will come into the world.
The First Beast is a global totalitarian network system (the state and the religion). The second beast is a man, the Antichrist, the new Cain. We have already written about the phenomenon of Cain as a Satanist, about the first person who, instead of God, consciously adopted the devil. In the context of the above, Cain can be called not just the first devil worshiper, but also the first, “pre-Christian” antichrist.
This understanding of the Cain phenomenon gives us a lot of knowledge about the apocalyptic events of the Last Times. Sons of the devil, “antichrists” have been and will be. But according to the prophecies, in the Last times a special Antichrist will come, a human incarnation, the ideal adoption of the devil. But the first Antichrist, Cain, was also a special person. Humanity – the family of Adam and Eve – begot Cain with great hopes for the salvation. Likewise, the last Antichrist will also be the result of sinful people’s hopes for the salvation.
Cain became the ancestor of a civilization opposed to God. The last Antichrist will become the crown, the highest development of the civilization founded by Cain, opposing God – the Beast.
We just write out the main features of this last non-church era:
General characteristics. The last global totalitarian civilization combining both the state and the “church”.
Relation to religion. Hyper-religious civilization. One religion is obligatory for all.
Kind of religion, what is God? Satan takes the place of God.
Attitude towards alternatives to religion. Extremely hostile.
Soteriology. The Beast must save humanity from the crisis.
Personality state. A new person, a new “personality” must become the cell of this civilization. The essence of this “personality” is the substitution of spirit, mind for information digital simulation.
Gender and its meaning. Patriarchy. The Antichrist is “the son of perdition” (2Thes. 2:3), the son, not the daughter.
Blood and its meaning. The great importance of blood and body, the Antichrist must be of a certain nation and bloodline, and the bodies of all people are actively involved in religious worship.
The nature of technology is religious technology, that is, those technologies that serve religion.
A distinctive sign of civilization. The stigma 666 on everyone who enters this religious civilization (as the Cainites once had their own mark).
We will concern the problem of the Last times and the Beasts of Apocalypse in detail in the further article.
