Before I get into the subject of this post, I would like to give another verse concerning the New Covenant. Here is Jeremiah 31:31: "Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah." Note how Jeremiah distinguishes between the House of Israel and the House of Judah. The House of Israel became most of Scattered Israel (mainly in Europe). Paul undertook Gospel preaching journeys to as far as Britain (though that is not recorded in the scriptures).
Before I go on further I would like to address (in a nutshell) the grand history of this solar system (in terms of the sons of God or Elohim or Anunnaki: those whom Anu sent from heaven to earth). The first inhabitants of the earth were the dinosaurs or titans. They had an advanced civilization. "Leviathan" in the Bible refers to the ruler of this civilization, who at some time (in the way distant past) rebelled against the most High. God sent in Lucifer (or Enki or Osiris) to put down this rebellion. Lucifer and his angels--whom God had placed under his command--then took over this solar system. In time Lucifer and his angels (being a third of all the angels) rebelled, and Marduk (or Horus or Satan) was sent in with an army to crush this 2nd rebellion. The latter was successful in this endeavor and proceeded to establish his rulership (or governoship) of this solar system. It was Marduk who blew up Tiamat--the planet between Mars and Jupiter--from which a large section flew off to eventually settle into orbit between Venus and Mars to become earth. It was also Marduk who established Atlantis, the founding of which civilization is credited to Poseidon. And in time Marduk (Horus) also rebelled, becoming Satan. Then God sent in Ninurta (the archangel Michael) with an army to smash this third rebellion (www.gatewaystobabylon.com/introduction/sonsofgod.htm).
One more thing I'll touch on before going onto the subject of this post. A passage from Daniel 7 is speaking of Jesus Christ at the end of time judging Satan: "9I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.10A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. 11I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. 12As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. 13I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him." Like many Christians, I made the mistake of thinking that the Ancient of days--with pure wool-like hair--is the Father; but the Father has no form--that is he has no (spirit) body, as his spiritual and physical creatures do. The Ancient of days is none other than Jesus Christ. Note how at the beginning of this passage it mentions that earthly thrones are cast down, making way for Christ to establish his throne. Witness Revelation 1:14: "His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire." Clearly the individual described in the above passage from Daniel 7 and the individual described in Rev. 1 are one and the same. Further, we have an explanation of the above passage further on in Daniel 7: "26But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. 27And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him." The "they" in verse 26 most likely is speaking of Jesus Christ and his servants under him--and Christ is under the most High.
Finally, the subject of this post. I believe that Nimrod of the Bible and Sargon of mainstream ancient history are one and the same person. We've been told that Sargon was a Semitic ruler who founded the city of Akkad--anywhere between 3800 BC to 2300 BC. And Sargon is (supposed) to be the first great conqueror in the Near East. The Bible tells us that Nimrod "began to be a mighty one" and that he was the founder of the cities of Babel and Accad (Genesis 10:8-10). It was he who commanded that the Tower of Babel be built (Gen. 11).
It looks to me that Nimrod rewrote his own biography. The word of God tells us that Nimrod was a grandson of Ham (Gen. 10:6-8). Nimrod took on the title of "Sargon"--meaning "true king"--and changed his parentage from his grandfather Ham to Ham's brother Shem. Why would he do this? The answer appears to be provided in Genesis 9:25-27, where Noah pronounces a curse and blessings: "And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant." Nimrod knew that his great grandfather Noah had blessed his grand uncle Shem; whereas Ham received no blessing, but his son Canaan received a curse. It may very well be that Nimrod or Sargon wanted to distance himself from his blood connection to Ham. Once he gained power over the institutions, Nimrod had his followers obliterate any record of his being of Ham's lineage. And he had new records made, showing that he was of Shem's lineage--thereby justifying his kingship, for Shem received the greater blessing between him and his other brother Japheth.
There was a pre-flood Sargon, who was Cain the elder son of Adam. He had the title of "Sargon the Magnificent." He was the first Sargon and Nimrod was the 2nd Sargon.
Now the title "ashar" is quite old. "Ashar" appears to have derived from the name "Osiris." Or it may be the other way around. From Osiris also comes "Asherah," "Ausar," and "Asshur." "Ashar" may mean something like this: "original truth." Osiris appears to be the Egyptian name for Lucifer. And "Lucifer" itself is a title meaning "light bearer."
While we're at it, "Atum" must have come from "Adam." And we have the Egyptian God "Atum-Re" (pronounced "Ray"). Now Adam is called "the son of God" (Luke 3:38). And Jesus is the Son of God. Then it may be said that Atum-Re (Re being another version of Ra)--who was worshiped in Heliopolis--points to Jesus Christ.
"Amun" is related to "amen." Revelation 3:14 says this: "These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God." Amun held up Ma'at--who was identifed with truth, justice, and goodness. Thus Amun or amen must have to do with truth and all that is good. "Amun-Ra" was the ultimate God of early ancient Egypt. He most likely is equivalent to the Christ Jesus or the Father or both. "Ra" (another God) means light, and in the epistle of James (1:17) we are told that "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights..."
