Mysteries of
The Anunnaki

The Anunnaki

Are a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamian mythology. The name "Anunnaki" means "the ones who came from heaven to earth." According to ancient Sumerian texts, the Anunnaki were believed to be a race of powerful beings who created humanity and played a major role in shaping human civilization.

The Anunnaki were said to be the children of Anu, the god of the heavens, and Ki, the goddess of the earth. They were also associated with the planet Nibiru, which was said to have a highly elliptical orbit that brought it close to Earth every few thousand years.

According to some interpretations of ancient texts, the Anunnaki came to Earth in order to mine gold, which was highly valued on their home planet. They allegedly created humans as a labor force to work in the mines, but also taught them agriculture, mathematics, and other important skills. Some scholars believe that the story of the Anunnaki may have influenced the development of early religious beliefs in Mesopotamia and beyond.

The Anunnakis and The Book of Enoch

The Watchers from the Book of Enoch are a group of fallen angels who descended to Earth and took human wives, just like the Anunnaki in Mesopotamian mythology. According to the Book of Enoch, the Watchers taught humans various skills, such as metallurgy, jewelry-making, and the use of makeup. They also taught humans magic, which included enchantments and root-cuttings.

However, the Watchers also brought corruption and violence to Earth, leading to the rise of the Nephilim, a race of giant beings who caused destruction and chaos. The Watchers' actions ultimately led to God's decision to flood the Earth in order to cleanse it of their influence.

There are some similarities between the teachings attributed to the Anunnaki and the Watchers, such as the transmission of knowledge and skills to humans. However, the Watchers in the Book of Enoch are portrayed as corrupt and responsible for the downfall of humanity, whereas the Anunnaki in Mesopotamian mythology are generally seen as beneficent deities who helped to shape human civilization.

Book of Enoch Chapter 6-8

[Chapter 6]

1 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto 2 them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men 3 and beget us children.' And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not 4 indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations 5 not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves 6 by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn 7 and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz, their leader, Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, 8 Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqiel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. These are their chiefs of tens.

[Chapter 7]

1 And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms 2 and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. And they 3 became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed 4 all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against 5 them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and 6 fish, and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.

[Chapter 8]

1 And Azazel 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 2 colouring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they 3 were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, 'Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .

In The Book of Enki

The Book of Enki is a modern work of alternative historical fiction that reinterprets the mythology of the ancient Mesopotamian civilization. In this book, the Anunnaki are portrayed as extraterrestrial beings who came to Earth in order to mine gold, just like in some interpretations of ancient Sumerian texts.

According to the Book of Enki, the Anunnaki taught humans various crafts, including metallurgy, masonry, and agriculture. They also introduced humans to the concept of kingship and established themselves as rulers over humanity. The book suggests that the Anunnaki were not necessarily benevolent beings, but were driven by their own desires and needs, including a need for gold and power.

It's important to note that the Book of Enki is not based on any ancient texts or historical evidence, and should be taken as a work of fiction rather than a reliable source of information about the Anunnaki or any other aspect of Mesopotamian mythology.

In Sumerian Mythology

In Sumerian mythology, the Anunnaki were considered as deities who played a significant role in shaping human civilization. According to some ancient Sumerian texts, the Anunnaki were responsible for teaching humans various crafts and skills, including agriculture, metalworking, and writing.

For example, in the Sumerian creation myth, the god Enki (also known as Ea) is credited with teaching humanity how to farm and irrigate the land, as well as how to use plows and tools to cultivate crops. In another Sumerian myth, the god Enki is said to have created humans as a servant race to do the hard labor of mining and building.

In addition to these practical skills, the Anunnaki were also believed to have taught humans about religion, law, and governance. In Sumerian society, kings were often considered to be divinely appointed rulers, and were believed to have received guidance and instruction from the gods.

It's worth noting that there are many different versions of Sumerian mythology, and not all texts agree on the specific details of the Anunnaki's interactions with humanity. However, the general idea that the Anunnaki were responsible for teaching humans important skills and knowledge is a common thread throughout many different myths and legends.

The Hebrew God & The Anunnakis

The Hebrew God, as described in the Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament), was very clear that the Jewish people were to worship only him and no other gods. This is expressed in the first of the Ten Commandments, which states: "You shall have no other gods before me" (Exodus 20:3).

Throughout the Hebrew Bible, there are many examples of the Jewish people being punished for worshiping other gods or practicing idolatry. The Hebrew God was very jealous and demanded exclusive worship from his followers.

Therefore, there is no way that The Hebrew God would accept that his people follow Mesopotamian gods or any other gods. From the perspective of Jewish theology, the worship of other gods would be seen as a grave sin and a violation of the covenant between God and his chosen people.
