gog & magog / Amorites / sons of god

Gog & Magog

Gog = ancient Semitic word for King or Mountain of Darkness. As king, he is identified as the Prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, in the land of Magog. [See Ezekiel, Chap 38: 1-4 & 39: 1-2]. The prophetic literature identifies a ‘Prince’ not necessarily as human but rather as a Spirit or guiding Folk Soul [Zeitgeist or mindset] of a nation. This is found in the Book of Daniel.

Tubal (a son of Cain) and Meshech (Moskva or Moscow) are two rivers north of the Caucasus. Hence, Rosh is identified as part of Russia.

Magog = highest point known to ancient Semites. The word derives from Maghoph, meaning Land of Moon and Tree Worshipers; tribes who placed totems (Asherah) in the Caucasus Mountains. These peoples inhabited regions north and east of  Syria, extending into Scythia and Russia.


Dr Hany Atchan suggests these terms mean, per al Qur’an, institutions of organized evil (the Beast) and the pedestrian mob that pays their taxes in abject ritualized ignorance, respectively.

The iniquity of the Amorites

The iniquity of the Amorites is not yet consummated. (Gen 15:16)

That this signifies the last time, when there is no longer any good, is evident from the signification of “the Amorite,” and from the signification of “consummation.”

By “the Amorite” is signified evil in general because the land of Canaan was called the land of the Amorites (Ezek 16:3, 4; Amos 2:9, 10). Therefore, it signifies all nations of the land of Canaan; and by these, as before said, were signified evils and falsities specifically; and consequently, all evils in general. By “consummation” is signified the last time, when there is no longer any good.

They shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led captive among all the nations; and at length, Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the nations, until the times of the nations shall be fulfilled (Luke 21:24).

To “fall by the edge of the sword,” signifies by falsities, for “a sword” in scripture is a punishment of what is false; “Jerusalem” denotes the Lord‘s kingdom or church (ummah) (n 402); “nations” signifies evils (n 1260). Thus the signification is that there will be a consummation when the church is possessed by evils and falsities, and so be destroyed of itself.

Son of God

This phrase refers of anyone or group of believers who reflect the Divine Light of Genesis called Significant Light (they incarnate the word of God = logos made flesh). Prior to Mohammad, Jesus and his mother were the purest, thus far incarnate, of the pre-primordial reserve spoken of in Genesis. There are indications that a Yemeni Jewish sect called Ezra, was also referred to as a ‘Son of God’.

The metaphor was frequently used in the OT Scripture:
• Kenan was the son of Enosh. Enosh was the son of Seth. Seth was the son of Adam. Adam was the son of God. or alternatively:  Who was of Henos, who was of Seth, who was of Adam, who was of God.
• When Israel was a child, then I loved him and called my son out of Egypt. (Hosea 11:1)
• He said to me, ‘Your son Solomon is the one who shall build My house and My courts; for I have chosen him to be a son to Me, and I will be a father to him. (1 Chronicle 28:6)
• He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. (Rev 21:7)
• Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. (Job 1:6)
• Bene Elohim means ‘Sons of God’
• Luke called Adam the Son of God (Lk 3:38);
• He that walketh in the darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have the light, believe in the light, that ye may be sons of light.     ~ (John 12:35–36).
• As many as received him, to them gave he the power to become sons of God (John 1:12–13).
• Bar’Nabi (Barnabas) means ‘sons of the prophets’, referring to a school of prophets (or company of prophets) founded on Mount Hermon by Samuel.

From My Book on the Trinity: regarding the term, ‘Begotten
We must return to Philo Judaeus (20 BC-54 AD) for a brief moment. He was an Alexandrian Jew of ancient priestly stock who made it his life’s work to reconcile Hebrew Theology with Greek Mythology and Plato’s philosophy. It was he, Philo, who coined the phrase: “the first-begotten of God’ in direct reference to the ‘logos’ being God’s ‘offspring by the virgin, ‘Wisdom’. This is taken from his book: DE CONFUSIONE LINGUARUM page 28, re-copied during the time of Isa, and which predated copied gospels by at least 200 years. This contemporary temporal relationship and word-for-word inclusion in the NT Canon cannot be ignored or apologized away. It is evidence of blasphemy rather than divine revelation. This singular fact unveils the Christian Trinity as myth, and is a ‘smoking-gun’, unless you include Philo in the cadre of canonized Apostles.

This presents us with collusion between later church patriarchs and zealous scribes who either believed the myth or consciously worked for Zeus. Philo simply used typical Semitic allegorical poetry, so common in his time, to illustrate his concept of Allah’s revelatory process. He did this to explain Hebrew theology to Greek intellectuals. It is feasible this is what John also attempted, but later patriarchs utilized this metaphor to make Isa an incarnate god acceptable to non-intellectual contemporary pagan myth lovers as a conversion tool for power politics. Instead of plainly teaching that the gift of wisdom manifest as being bestowed by God on the final Hebrew Prophet, they taught that Isa was God’s wisdom incarnate and, thus, co-equal with God as His Only Begotten Son, the first and sole incarnate son divinely patented with infinite wisdom because he was God. May Allah have mercy, for I believe many did not know what they were doing?

King James translators and transcribers — under the yoke of Sir Francis Bacon (a Rosicrucian Grandmaster Adept) — conveniently modified (perhaps even codified in cipher) David’s words as ‘Begotten Thee’, supposedly referencing Jesus. However, the passage in question (Psalm 2:7) is more correctly translated as: 'This day have I declared thy lineage‘ — a direct reference to ETH-HA-ADHAWM, the first prophet. Immediately afterward, the text states, “Thou art my son.” But take note: this is not a paternal acknowledgment but rather a clear reference to Messiah’s authenticity in the office of prophet or anointed ruler (vicegerent), as per the customary idiom of the day in which the psalms were written—inferring that Iesa was chosen by Allah as Prophet.
