A brief history of Christianity as it results from my studies and intuition

by Jan Erik Sigdell

There were around Jesus two circles: 1) the outer circle of people who listened to him speaking and 2) the inner circle of his disciples and persons close to him. It is obvious from John 16:12 that he did not say things in the outer circle that he doubtlessly said in the inner circle: “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.”

Out of the inner circle arouse the Gnostic Christianity that was earlier than the Paulinian Christianity. As is told in the Gnostic text The Gospel of Truth, YHWH became angry because of what Jesus was teaching and had him nailed to a cross. See Yaldabaoth in the Gnostic texts, where it is shown that “Yaldabaoth” is a Gnostic name for YHWH and where it is explained why YHWH in the Gospel of Truth is called “Error”. So why was YHWH angry at him? Because he in the inner circle, according to Pistis Sophia (another Gnostic text), told that YHWH is not the real god, and talked about how we can be saved from YHWH.

YHWH expected that Jesus’ teachings would gradually be forgotten after his death, but the contrary occurred. Jesus’ sacrifice gave more power to them and they were carried on by the Gnostic Christians. Therefore, YHWH, as a strategy, wanted to replace that original Christianity with a new one that serves his purposes and inspired Paul to establish a kind of “Christianity light” that does not have the profound truths of the Gnostic Christianity and lacks what Jesus had taught about YHWH in the inner circle, but instead tells other things YHWH wants the people to believe. See Jesus’ Main Mission.

This way, Christianity gradually became replaced by the Paulinian Christianity. YHWH then manipulated Constantine to reject the Gnostic Christianity at the Council in Nicaea in 325, where the basis for the Church, as it developed from there, became the Paulinian Christianity.

Acts 9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, “Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?”

9:5 And he said, “Who art thou, Lord?” And the Lord said, “”I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.”

9:6 And he trembling and astonished said, “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?” And the Lord said unto him, “Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.”

Did this, really, come from Jesus, or from YHWH pretending to be Jesus? Let us compare with another “inspiration”. It is told that Constantine had a vision (some sources say a dream) in which he saw the cross and heard “In this sign you will be victorious.” Then he had the cross painted on the shields of his soldiers and was victorious in his wars. Did this come from Jesus? Jesus taught us “You shall not kill”, “Love your enemies” and “Who takes to the sword will be undone by the sword”, which is a grave contradiction to the vision of Constantine. Jesus would have told him to make peace and forgive his enemies! Therefore, that vision could not have come from Jesus. Did it come from YHWH, who wanted to have an apparently Christian Church that serves his interests? His interests in manipulating and controlling the people? If that is so, it may also cast some doubts about the vision of Paul…

In the same sense we may question, who it really was, who tempted Jesus in Luc 4:1-13. Was it, maybe, YHWH – trying to bring him off from his mission?

However, the Gnostic Christianity, that – by the way – also knew about reincarnation and taught it (which apparently YHWH for some reason did not like), did not disappear completely. Some Gnostics remained in the Balkans, more or less where Bulgaria is to day, and later moved to Southern France, where the Cathar community formed. The Cathars (the “pure ones”) followed Jesus’ teachings so well that they were vegetarians and never killed an animal – “Thou shalt not kill!” They also knew and taught reincarnation. In the 13th century this community was completely eradicated in a cruel genocide, a veritable holocaust against them, by the people of the Church! An extremely unchristian action! One of the great sins of the Church – besides the Inquisition which cruelly worked in a way YHWH will have liked… Cf. About Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

As concerns reincarnation one may assume that this is one of the things Jesus referred to in John 16:12…

The Gnostic Texts were destroyed during the attempts to eradicate the movement. Luckily, a large number of them were discovered in Nag Hammadi in Egypt in 1945, so that we to day again have access to most of this treasure of immensely important information.


Discussion of a statement by Michael Tellinger

Michael Tellinger has written a valuable book [1] about the origin of humankind. In Chapter 15, he, however, writes “…Jesus became an unwitting ‘mouthpiece’ for the bloodthirsty Nefilim god, preparing the ground for the continued enslavement of humanity. …unconsciously weaving the propaganda of a power-hungry Anunnaki god. … The uncanny parallels between the murky origins of humanity, comparing to the origins of Christ, point to the real possibility that whoever crafted humanity, followed it up with a second wave of premeditated propaganda and ultimate control.”

His remark “…the one truly puzzling feature is the lack of reference to messiah in the Old Testament. The word ‘messiah’ first appears in John 1:41…” is not really true. In the King James’ Bible, it appears in Dan 9:25-26, but since the Hebrew word mashiach is usually translated as “(the) anointed (one)”, we have to search the Bible for the latter word. “Anointed” is found in 84 verses and in a few of them, it may be understood similarly to the Christian understanding. However, this is not of major importance for the discussion here. It is, however, remarkable that Tellinger writes about “the origins of Christ” (above), when according to him no such origins can be found in the Bible.

The Bible and the whole official Christianity of the Church hypnotize us to identify Jesus with Christ, which is a cause of much misunderstanding. The Jesus of Christianity was for obvious reasons unknown before he was born in Bethlehem. The name “Yeshua” was given him there like a name is given to every child that is born. But who was he before he incarnated as this Yeshua? That we don’t know. It is, therefore, logically and naturally expected that no “Yeshua” is mentioned in the Old Testament that could be the one of Christianity (there is another Yeshua mentioned in Old Testament Apocrypha: Yeshua ben Sirah).

So who, then, is Christ? In official Christianity, he is a very high entity, close to God, who is assumed to have incarnated as Jesus. Does this make sense? That Christ, being such a high entity, would incarnate in a human body appears quite unimaginable. It is much more likely that he sent a messenger to humanity, and that this messenger was Jesus.

But “Christ” is not a name! It is the Greek translation (Christós) of the word mashiach, “the anointed one”, which is adopted in almost every modern language. We do not know a name for him. There is much confusion here. Several persons in the Old Testament were “anointed” and the word mashiach is used not only for Christ or for Jesus. Christ will most probably also not be mentioned in the Old Testament as mashiach in a “Christian” sense. He will rather have been unknown to those who wrote the parchments that after a long time were to become the Old Testament. He became known to us mainly through his message sent through Jesus.

So where do we find more information about this? There is a tradition of a very basic importance to Christianity that has been blacked out in texts and history since some 2000 years: The Gnostic Christianity. It very early became subject of rude controversy and denial, and its texts were destroyed in the first centuries. However, a collection secretly survived as if by a divine salvation plan and was rediscovered in 1945 in Nag Hammadi in Egypt. Here we get a very different view of Christianity from what the Church wants us to believe. It looks like Tellinger is not aware of what is written in these texts, so that he misses an important historical link about treason and falsification of the message that Jesus brought us.

There obviously were two circles around Jesus: an outer circle and an inner one, as mentioned above. What Jesus said in public, i.e. in the outer circle, will not be the whole message, since people were not ready to hear and understand it. Furthermore, the essential part of the message was highly “explosive” and controversial for his time.

So what was then this “explosive” part of the message? If one studies the texts of the Gnostic Christians, it becomes obvious: Yahweh is not the real god! There is one far above him that Jesus called “Father”. Yahweh is an Anunnaku (I use this simplified singular, since “Anunnaki” is plural) but the “Father” is above all Anunnaki. Such a message was, of course, “mortal” to bring in those days and it is very obvious, indeed, that Yahweh wanted this Jesus dead, and he succeeded to have him killed, hoping that this message would soon be forgotten. But it was not! It survived for a few centuries among the Gnostic Christians, who used the name Yaldabaoth (and one or two other) for Yahweh, probably so that outsiders should not easily understand who was meant. Yahweh also was successful in eradicating most of the Gnostic Christians and their texts, even though some of it survived in secret organizations and it then again surfaced among the Cathars. Then it surfaced in 1945 in Nag Hammadi to challenge Yahweh’s primary control instrument in the Western world: the Church that did and does anything possible to discredit Gnostic Christianity.

This means that we have two Jesuses: the real one and a fake pseudo-Jesus of the Church. Since Yahweh could not fully eliminate the tradition of the message, he cleverly changed it to serve his purposes and interests. The first step was to let Paul appear on the stage and teach a different Christianity. Out of that later arose a Church as an institution to manipulate the population with a “Christianity” that made people believe that Jesus’ “Father” would be Yahweh. In John 8:31-47 Jesus is quoted as telling something to the people that contradicts this, but it is – as expected – interpreted very differently by the Church.

What Tellinger writes about Jesus is true, after all – about the fake Jesus of the Church! But not about the real Jesus…

Tellinger refers repeatedly to Zecharia Sitchins books. Sitchin obscured and downplayed important introductory lines in the Babylonian creation story Enuma Elish: “When above heaven had not yet been named and below the Earth had not yet been called by a name, when Apsű primeval, their begetter, Mummu and Ti’âmat, who gave birth to them all, mingled their waters together…” [2]. Did Sitchin have an Anunnaki connection, since he seems to “revere” them as the real creators? In his interpretation, Apsű is the Sun and Ti’âmat a planet that extremely long ago burst into pieces that to day form the asteroid belt. But it can also be taken more literally: Apsű can be understood as the primordial creator and Ti’âmat as his consort. They are, then, the very first entities from and by which the universe was created. Apsű could mythologically be associated with the Sun, but identifying him with it is another thing. Ti’âmat could be associated with a no more existing planet and the civilization it is said to have had, but – again – identification is another matter. One reason why I point this out becomes clearer when I compare with Gnostic creation story in The Apocryphon of John [3], which mentions an incomprehensible and unnamed original creator and his manifested creative power Barbelo who is regarded as female, giving birth to the creation. The creation then proceeded in steps, which “further down” lead to darker and more material realms. On a low level, Yaldabaoth (= Yahweh, see above) arose, who became the lord of such a realm of darkness.

In the Babylonian creation story, Apsű and Ti’âmat created more entities and then, a step “further down”, the ones that became known as the Anunnaki. These became a kind of “celestial rowdies” and disturbed their creators: “…their doing was painful to them. There way was not good…” [2]. Therefore, Apsű wanted to reverse their creation (take them back into his primordial energy), but Ti’âmat did not want this to be done, since – after all – she was their mother. Then things proceeded in an increasingly negative way that has parallels to the Gnostic creation story.

According to Enuma Elish, the Anunnaki then “killed” Apsű and Ti’âmat. But can the original creators really be killed? Of course not! It will really mean that the Anunnaki turned their backs to them to live, act and rule as if they were dead, letting their people believe that they were. They shut themselves off from the rest of the creation to conceal themselves in their own limited world.

My understanding is that the “Father” Jesus talked about is the “unnamed creator” of the Gnostics and Apsű of the Babylonians, who is above all Anunnaki – and certainly not Yahweh!
