The following is chapter 9 and the very beginning of chapter 10 from the final Ms of "The Called" (so no page numbers) ... It pretty much takes you from Ararat to Abram's initial calling ... it is written as narrated by the first prophet Enoch, tho these chapters are based first on the Genesis account with excerpts from The Book of Jubilees interwoven ... i understand some to view this work as complete nonsense, but it still does not alter the fact that i believe our Lord gave it to me for reasons even yet to be revealed ... If you find this beneficial to further understanding then praise God, if you find this to make you want to tar and feather me then praise God i'm no where near your physical vacinity :-D ... i personally found it fascinating to look up some of these ancient names and finding out where they are today, tho many of Ham's landmarks i could not find tho we know today that hot + south = Africa ... Here's a modern map of the vacinity of the known world back then ... http://education.yahoo.com/reference/factbook/regional_maps/Africa;_ylt=AtD0IeM3X3gSK5kzUYgi8U3EecYF
On the two hundred twenty-fourth day after the onset of the rain had the waters receded sufficient for the ark to rest upon the mountains of Ararat. Seemingly magical occurrences were birthed to the earth due to the flood. For the first time in history was man able to view the sun and the moon in total clarity. Even the color of the sky had changed. In daylight it was no longer a muted bluish green, but was now breathtakingly blue. Now there were clouds, fluffy, white, and massive. Noah and his family were initially greatly disturbed by the added brightness, but equally compensated by the novel spectacles they viewed. At night the heavens had become an ink black backdrop, contrasting in high resolution the breath taking paths of shooting stars. The stars were now so amazingly clear, and never had they realized them to be so numerous. Phenomena of second heaven once seen only by my own eyes, after the falling of the waters were now more clearly visible to these eight surviving souls. Another occurrence that greatly concerned Noah was the cold. Something was different about the air. It was no longer tropical. They had no way of realizing that the poles of the earth were freezing, for when the earth was encapsulated it held the suns warmth. Now that the insulating water blanket was gone, through process of evaporation, and condensation, rain, snow, and ice would now become natural to planet Earth.
The earth had soaked in a great deal of the water, while evaporation took its due to the heavens. Three hundred and seventy-one days after Noah entered the ark did he step upon dry ground. He and his family were repulsed by what assaulted their vision. The earth was damp and hostile. Nothing moved; everything was drowned. The earth was a sickening gray; decayed remains littered the countryside. Globally the habitable land was reduced by the additional water upon the earth. There were new oceans, seas, lakes, mountains, and valleys. The weight of the water had made the earths crust less stable and subject to increased seismic activity. The earth and all therein was exhausted.
The Lord Jah-el once again spoke to Noah, and instructed him to release all of the animals brought into the ark. Afterwards Noah built an altar and sacrificed an array of clean animals, as well as incense of odor to the Lord. The Lord Jah-el was pleased with Noahs offering and spoke to him, making a covenant with him, promising that never again would He destroy the earth with water, and as a sign of that covenant He placed the rainbow in the sky. Jah-el blessed Noah and his family, reiterating the procreation mandate. He told Noah that now all animal life was given to mankind as food and clothing but man was never to eat the blood thereof, for blood was sacred because it is the life and all life belongs to Jah-el. The Lord Jah-el also warned Noah that because of this decree would the animals of the earth grow to fear man, for now man was divinely mandated a hunter. Noah and his sons acknowledged the law of Jah-el, and all swore that they would not consume the blood.
In the six hundred and first year of his life did Noah set foot on the land, and in that year did he and his sons clear a place for themselves and they began to plant their seed stock. And Noah planted vines on the mountain and for a full three years did he guard the vines. And so it came to pass that at the very onset of the fourth year that he gathered the fruit thereof and made for himself wine which he aged for an additional years time. At the fifth year anniversary of their coming forth from the ark Noah presided over what had now become an annual family celebration of offering sacrifices to the Lord, and rejoicing and praising Him that He had saved them. Afterwards Noah brought forth his fermentation of the vine and did drink himself into inebriation, he and his household with him. At the close of the day, the festivities well ended, Noah retired to his tent. Being drunk, he disrobed and fell asleep naked upon his bed. Ham discovered his fathers condition, and proceeded to make sport of it to his brethren. But Shem and Japheth were not amused; and so walking backwards, so as not to see their fathers shame, covered him with a cloak. When Noah awakened and was told of his sons folly he became sore enraged, and cursed Hams infant son Canaan saying, Cursed be Canaan, an enslaved servant shall he be to his brethren. Thus Noah cursed Hams baby son, knowing that this would afflict Ham even more than had the curse been made upon him. Then Noah continued, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem, and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and cause him to prosper.
Upon hearing of the curse leveled against his youngest son, Ham was incensed. Then he, his wife, and his sons Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan departed from his father, and Ham built his own settlement and called it Neelatamauk. Japheth saw what his brother had done and became envious of him, and so he and his family left Noah and built a settlement and called it Adataneses. Shem eventually followed suit and built his familys camp close to those of his father and brethren on the mountain, and called its name Sedeqetelebab. These are the sons of Shem shortly after his disembarking the ark: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Arram. And the sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Juvan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.
In the course of time many more sons and daughters were born to the sons of Noah, and these intermarried. Arpachshad, Shems son born in the second year after the flood, grew to manhood and took to wife Rasueja, the daughter of Susan, the daughter of Elam, who was also Shems son. Rasueja bore a son and his name was called Kainam, and when he grew his father taught him writing. When he became of age he set out to find a suitable place of settlement that he might marry and father his children. In the midst of his quest did he come upon a writing that was carved on a rock. He transcribed it and sinned owing to it for it contained the teachings of the Evil Watchers in accordance with which they used to observe the omens of the sun, moon, and stars. So he wrote out the sayings and said nothing to Noah concerning it, fearing that Noah would be angered. So Kainam found his place and took to wife Melka the daughter of Madai, the son of Japheth. Then Melka bore a son to Kainam, and they named him Shelah. Shelah came of age, and took to wife Muak. Muak bore him a son, and he was named Eber. Eber grew, and took to wife Azurad. She bore him a son, and they called his name Peleg. In the days of Peleg did the sons of Noah begin to divide the earth. They divided in three parts, in lots. Shems lot became the middle of the earth, which was to become his and the inheritance of his children. So Shems land extended from the middle of the Ural Mountains; from the mouth of the water from the river Tanais westward to where this same river empties into the sea of Azov. All lands to the north are Japheths, but all land to the south down to the reaches of the Egyptian border was allotted to Shem. His portion extended west in a straight line to the Egyptian Sea, south to Africa to the extent of the Nile, and east toward Eden.
To Ham was allotted the second portion, beyond the Gihon, towards the south to the right of Eden, to the mountains of fire, and it extended to the west to the sea of Atel, and even farther west to the sea of Ma'uk. To the north as far as Gadir, and it goes forth to the coast of the waters of the sea to the waters of the Great Sea till it draws near to the river Gihon, and runs along the Gihon until it reaches the right of Eden.
To Japheth was allotted the final portion beyond the river Tanais, northeast to the whole region of Scythia, and to all land east there-of. It extends northerly to the mountains of Celt, toward Oceanus, and it goes forth to the east of Cadiz as far as the sea. It extends until it approaches the west of Fara, and it returns toward Aferag, and it extends easterly to the sea of Azov. It extends to the region of the Tanais River in a northeasterly direction until it approaches the boundary of its waters toward the Ural Mountains, and it turns round to the north. So Japheth received five great islands, and a great land in the north, in a land that is cold. Hams land is intense in heat, and the land of Shem is neither hot nor cold but is blended of both.
Ham then divided his land amongst his sons and the first portion did he give to Cush the lands toward the east, and to the west of him for Mizraim, and to the west of him for Put. Shem also divided amongst his sons; the first portion went to Elam to the east of the river Tigris till it approaches all of the land of India. To Asshur came the second portion, all the land of Asshur, and Nineveh, and Shinar, and to the borders of India. To Arpachshad all the land of the region of the Chaldees to the east of the Euphrates bordering on the Red sea, and all the land of Lebanon, Sanir, and Amana to the border of the Euphrates. To Aram, all the land of Mesopotamia between the Tigris and the Euphrates toward the north of the Chaldees to the border of the land of Asshur and the land of Arara. To Lud the mountains of Asshur and all therein till it reaches the Great Sea, and till it reaches the east of Asshur his brother. Japheth also divided his land so that in the far-reaching future his son Magog would become father of the Russian people, and Meshech and Tubal the fathers of the Turks, Madai the father of the Britons, Tiras the father of the Thracians, and Javan the father of the Greeks. From Cush would stem the Ethiopians; from Mizraim, the Egyptians; from Elam, the Orientals; from Put, the Libyans. The allotting of the land was in the permissive will of the Lord Jah-el, for it was in the distinctions of these peoples that He would play out His master plan.
At the onset of the falling of the floodwaters had the Lord Jah-el dispatched Michael and a legion of His holy angels. He sent them to dematerialize the two hundred Evil Watchers and to cast them into their holding places until the final judgment. These would not lead astray mankind ever again except for the five that were bound in the earth for a tribulation time far into the future. With these restrained, the dark lord Lucifer was forced from his relative ease of not having to coerce mankind into wickedness. As Jah-el had decreed hundreds of years afore this time, the earth was now being roamed by the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim, Eljo, and Eluid. Those neither human nor angelic beings who were now the invisible monstrosities of that unholy union. There was no place found for them in heaven, and no place for them in Sheol, and being in between worlds they strove to occupy bodies anew, for from bodies were they cast forth. It was by these wicked demon spirits that the dark lord Lucifer would wreak new havoc upon this new generation of mankind. He already had Kainams whetted appetite for the mysteries of the dark passages. Envy had already raised its ugly head amongst brothers, and now had the sons of Noah secretly divided the known earth that they may have individual possession instead of living as one family of man. Satan could see the pervasiveness of his evil far into the future. With his fallen angels, and the wicked demon spirits, he would lure countless captives into his partitions of the underworld.
So the dark lord Lucifer left his domain and called all the evil spirits to himself, and they bowed before his presence and did obeisance before him. Satan commanded them saying, Plague the children of the earth and seek to inhabit and destroy their souls, that I may use them as pawns to unrighteousness and to cause sorrow to Jah-el through His worthless creatures of flesh and blood. Go forth and do as I have commanded. There was no real sense of purpose in these disembodied spirits prior to Satans edict, but now they had a leader and their leader became their power. The spirits went forth attempting to possess whom they could, to work out once more the evil desires that consumed them. Without bodies they cannot experience the sensations of their wicked lust but with them would they reintroduce into the world antediluvian mass murders, serial killings, witchcraft, sorceries, idolatry, adulteries, gross fornication, sodomy, and all practices sore displeasing to the Lord of hosts.
The unclean spirits began to lead astray the children of the sons of Noah and to make them err from my writings, and to destroy them. Noahs sons approached him and relayed to him the activities of the demons. Noah cried out to the Lord Jah-el, praying, God of the spirits of all flesh who has shown mercy towards me, You who saved us from the waters of the flood, and have not caused me to perish as you did the sons of perdition, and have allowed us to live, and multiply in increase. Lord Thou knowest how the Evil Watchers, the fathers of these evil spirits, acted in my day, and for these spirits which are living I pray Thee imprison them, and let them not bring destruction upon my offspring. But Satan was in heaven, expecting Noahs plea, and he bade audience before Jah-el. Lord Creator, he petitioned, Please allow some of them to remain before me that they may listen to my voice and do my bidding. For these are for leading astray, for the sons of men are wicked. Then the Lord decreed that all but a tenth of them should be bound, and the remaining did the angels of heaven bind in the place of eternal condemnation.
The Lord Jah-el sent words to Noah of all of the ways of the malignant spirits, that his sons might recognize their wiles, and Noah wrote these in a book and gave it to his beloved son Shem. Shortly after this occurrence did Noah die, and he was buried on Mount Lubar in the land of Ararat. Noahs life spanned nine hundred fifty years, then his spirit was transported to the place of the called. Three hundred forty-nine years had now elapsed from the time of Noahs setting foot from the ark. Two thousand six years had elapsed from Adams creation to Noahs death, and I had been in heaven one thousand nineteen years.
These are the generations of the sons of NoahShem, Ham, and Japheth: unto them were sons born after the flood. The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. The sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
And the sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtecha. Of the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. Cush begat Nimrodwho began to be a mighty one in the earth; the beginning of his kingdom was Babeland Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar, and the cities Rehoboth, Calah, and Resen. Mizraim begat Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim, and Casluhim out of whom came Philistim and Caphtorim. Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth. From Canaans lineage eventually sprang the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgasite, the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite, and afterward were the families of these Canaanites spread abroad in great number in a land not their own, but that of Shems.
And the children of Shem were Elam, and Asshur who built Nineveh, and Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram. The children of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. Arpachshad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber. Unto Eber were born two sons: Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother Joktan. Joktan begat Almodad, Sheleph, Hazar-maveth, Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Obal, Abimael, Sheba, Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations established in the earth after the flood.
ABRAHAM AND ISAAC
Peleg the son of Eber, who was of the line of Shem, took to wife Lomna. She bore him a son and he called his name Reu, which means evil, for Peleg was marking by his sons name his impression of the times. It was in the days of Peleg that men choose to forsake a portion of the procreative mandate of the Lord Jah-el given Noah and his sons. Instead of spreading out anew toward repopulation of the land they, under Nimrods leadership, decided to congregate in one place for the purpose of building for themselves a great city and strong tower. It was said that this tower would be built as an escape if the Lord Jah-el should destroy the earth by water a second time. They built upon this tower for forty-three laborious years. Then the Lord Jah-el grew wearisome of their vanity, and said within Himself, Let Us go down to the surface of the earth and confound the language of the people, for they are all of one tongue. Then the Lord touched the mouths of all the people of the earth and they began to speak in divers tongues. Confusion abounded and the people abruptly ceased their building. Then Jah-el sent a mighty wind and overthrew the tower, and the people scattered over the entire earth each in the company of those who spoke their new language. And the place of the tower in each new tongue became known by one name: Babel.
Ham and his sons proceeded to go forth and to occupy the land of their allotment but Canaan saw the land of Lebanon to the river of Egypt, that it was very good, and he went not into the land of his inheritance but dwelt in Lebanon. Ham his father, and Cush, and Mizraim his brothers said to him, Canaan, you have settled in a land that is not yours. Do not dwell in the land of Shem, for to Shem and his sons did this land fall by lot. But he did not hearken, but possessed the land, and for this reason did that region of Shem become known as the land of Canaan. Japheth and his sons moved toward the sea and dwelt in the land of their portion, but Madai spied out the land and found it not to his liking. He in turn begged a portion of land from Elam, Asshur, and Arpachshad, and his dwelling place came to be known as Media, and eventually into the far distant future as the kingdom of Persia.
Reu the son of Peleg, of the line of Shem, took to himself a wife, and her name was Ora, and she bore him a son, and they called him Serug. In Serugs time did the sons of Noah begin to war with one another, and take captives, and to slay one another, and to spill and drink blood. They built strong cities, walls, and towers, and individuals began to exalt themselves above the nations, and to found kingdoms; all began to practice evil, and acquire arms, and to teach war, and to sell their fellow men into slavery. They made for themselves idols of gold, wood, and clay, and the evil spirits assisted, and seduced them into committing transgression. The dark lord Lucifer exerted himself to do all this, and he sent forth his angelic brethren to corrupt and destroy. Serug grew up and dwelt in Shinar, in the land of the Chaldees. He took to himself a wife, and her name was Melka, and she bore him Nahor his son. As Nahor grew, Serug taught him the ways of the Chaldeesdivining and auguryand astrology.
Nahor took to himself a wife, whose name was Ijaska, and she bore him a son Terah. Terah took a wife, and her name was Edna, and she bore him a son and they called his name Abram. At Abrams birth had I resided in the heaven of Jah-el nine hundred sixty-four years, Adam would have been one thousand nine hundred fifty-one years of age had he not eaten of the forbidden tree. As Abram grew in stature and mind he began to understand the errors of men, how they worshipped idols. At the age of fourteen did young Abram separate himself from the practice of idolatry. Abram began to pray to the Creator of all things that He might save him from the path of the ungodly, and that he should not fall into error. Then it came to pass, that one day Abram approached his father with regard to the futility of bowing before lifeless gods. Terah quickly hushed him, for these gods were his business and brought him great gain. It would not do for the purveyor of idols to openly admit their vanity. It would also not do for the son of an idol maker to express such views openly. Abram obeyed his father, but spoke also of the matter to his brothers. They too rebuked him, and became angry toward him; then Abram spoke of the matter no longer.
Abram took to himself a wife, and her name was Sarai. Haran his brother also took a wife, and she bore him a son and they called his name Lot. The matter of the idols plagued Abrams mind so much so that in the dead of night he set fire to the house of idols, and all that was in the house was burned, and no man knew who had set the fire. But the men arose in the night, attempting to rescue their gods, and Haran hastened to save them and was consumed in the flames. Haran was buried at Ur, of the Chaldees.
Terah, being distraught over the death of his son, packed his belongings and journeyed to the land of Lebanon in Canaan, both he and his entire family, and there remained fourteen years. While there, on a night of the new moon, did Abram sit through the night, observing the stars in regard to the character of rain for the year. While engulfed in the task words came forth from Abrams innermost being, and he prayed, saying, My God, God most high, You alone are my God. Deliver me from the wiles of the spirits who have dominion over the thoughts of man. Establish me and my seed forever that we may not go astray from henceforth, and evermore. Abram paused for a while, then proceeded to do something that brought great joy and gladness to the Lord Jah-el. Abram began to ask the Lord what should he do with his life, saying, My God, my Master, what should I do with this life that You have so graciously bestowed to me. What should I do? Where should I go? Shall I return to Ur, or should I remain in this place? Show me my right path O God, and prosper it in the hands of Your servant, that I might fulfill it, and that I may not walk in deceitfulness of heart.
Then the Lord Jah-el spoke to Abram, and said, Get up from this place Abram, leave thy fathers presence, and go unto a land which I shall show you, and I will make you a great nation. I will bless you, and thou shall be a blessing to the earth, and in thee will all families of the earth be blessed. I will be your God, and the God of your son, and the God of your sons son, and the God of all thy seed. Then the Lord Jah-el sent Michael to Abram and designated that Michael become the protecting angel to Abram, and to all Abrams seed until time should cease. Michael, doing Jah-els bidding, touched the mouth and ears of Abram that he might hear and speak with the language that had ceased from the earth since Jah-el confused the languages. Then Michael began to speak to Abram in Hebrew, for Hebrew was the language spoken since Jah-el had opened the mouth of Adam that he might converse. Jah-el had discontinued its use from the tower incident, but was now reinstating its usage in the mouth of Abram and his seed. Michael gave Abram the books of my writing for they were written in Hebrew, the tongue of creation. Abram took the books and transcribed them, and began to study them, and Michael made known to Abram all that he did not understand. After the six-month season of the rains did Abram speak of his departure to Terah his father, and Terah blessed him and said to him, Go in peace.
Abram journeyed from upper Lebanon and he took with him Sarai his wife, and his nephew Lot. Abram journeyed past Asshur on to Shechem, and dwelt near a lofty oak. Here Abram stopped to erect an altar, and do sacrifice unto Jah-el for the promise of the land. Abram continued in his quest, moving southward. He came to Hebron, a city, and dwelt there two years. Further southward he went to Bealoth; there was a famine in that land and so he went to Egypt. While in Egypt did the Pharaoh see Sarai, and was overwhelmed by her breathtaking beauty. He asked Abram concerning her and because of fear, for the Egyptians may have taken Abrams life concerning Sarai, he told Pharaoh she was his sister instead of his wife. Then did the monarch of Egypt take Sarai with intent of knowing her, but the Lord Jah-el sent plagues upon Pharaohs house and his sorcerers told him that it was because of Sarai. Pharaoh gave Sarai back to Abram, indignant that Abram had not told him the truth concerning her, and Abram departed Egypt. Abram returned to Shechem; his dwelling place was bordered by Ai to the east and Bethel on the west. Here Jah-el spoke to the man Abram, again reassuring him of the promises concerning his seed and the land. Abram then moved, and settled in Hebron.
