The Restoration of EL Elyon
as God Most High
Canaanite images of EL Elyon
EL was also the Greek god Saturn
Even Santa Claus
with his lamp and white beard as well as Father Time are all direct iconic
descendants of EL-Saturn
How EL Elyon got His name, "God Most High"
God Most High got His
name for the same reason Jews observe the Sabbath as their holy day of
the week. Besides being the name of their top God, EL was also the
Canaanite name for the planet Saturn, the outermost planet on the
ancient's seven planetary concentric shell "heavens" stacked above the
established the concept of Monotheism through the Hebrew epic because
the ancient pagans didn't have the concept clear in their minds that
there was a Great Spirit over and above our human representations of It.
However, monotheism as real belief system is quite impossible for human
beings because our brains only conceive of things in terms of contrasts,
i.e., "this vs. that". Oneness as a concept is really impossible to
imagine. Try it, you always wind up contrasting One with more than one.
Oneness cannot be comprehended by human minds with their "on/off"
biochemistry. This is why monotheism as a concept quickly devolved under
Hebrew religious definition into God the Father representing the whole
Godhead. The Godhead, the Holy One of Heaven & Earth is above the Man,
but it is spiritually important that human beings have a heavenly model
of Man so God the Father becomes that model. But who really is "God the
Father" in Judeo-Christian belief? Is it EL Elyon or Yahweh? For
example, who said,
Saturn then was
the "highest" of all the planetary rulers, higher than the sun or moon
orbiting the earth in the ancient's cosmology. "Saturn's Day", the
seventh day of the week, with Saturn the "highest" of planetary rulers,
is the root of the Hebrew Sabbath and the root meaning of why EL was
called God Most High.
"War is against my wish;
Plant the seeds of peace in the heart of the earth."
Yahweh or EL
Elyon? It wasn't Yahweh but EL Elyon's statement found in ancient
Canaanite cuniform texts since Yahweh was always a god of war while EL
Spirit of Christ comes from EL, not Yahweh before Jesus
fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom"
"love" was always conditional on obedience and only extended to those
who showed obedience to his Law. All others Yahweh would punish.
Yahweh rules by fear.
EL rules with compassion and wisdom. When EL was God Most High in
Canaan, the fearsome one was Baal, "the Lord" and EL's underling
enforcer of Order over Chaos. The battle Yahweh wages against Baal
reflects Yahweh's jealousy of Baal and Yahweh's lower state of spiritual
consciousness. Jesus taught us not to fear our heavenly Father but to
one who is able to destroy both body and soul in Gehenna."
--Luke 12: 4-5
"Do not fear, little
flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."
since the advent of Christ Christians have been uncomfortable with the
Old Testament God of Israel. Christians have had to turn a blind eye to
Yahweh's killer commandments in the Old Testament, ignoring the moral
implications of worshiping a god that orders the deaths of innocents by
the thousands, women and children included as verses in Joshua show. The
Rastafarians made their own solution by creating "Jah" as "One Love" in
their man-made transformation of Yahweh's characteristics into EL's
through the Spirit of Christ. But it is still artifice. Yahweh just was
never good enough to be Jesus' heavenly Father, his "Abba", his "Daddy".
is Jesus' "Good Father"
Gnostics believed Creation and the material world is basically flawed
and prone to evil entrapping human souls. To me that was the great
spiritual mistake of classical Gnosticism which I believe was their
reaction to an existential/spiritual dilemma posed by the quite
schizophrenic God of Israel as the Father of Jesus Christ. All
Christians who have humanitarian conscience wince at the horrible
commandments of the ancient God of Israel in the Old Testament. The
ancient Gnostics, perhaps influenced by Buddhist missionaries coming
into the Near East, reacted to this world's suffering by making an
intellectual decision that the god responsible for "making" (as opposed
to "creating") Creation did a botched job and everything is all fouled
up because of this Big Idiot as Maker of Creation running things. Best
life philosophy is to have as little to do with material worldly things
as possible and, like evangelical Christians, aim for a better world
beyond the grave. For Gnostics the better world was being reunited with
Sophia, Wisdom, the rightful Help-mate of a hidden unknowable Higher
I too had that same Christian dilemma about YHWH vs. the good Father of
Jesus. Until in 1998 I found EL Elyon, God Most High, as He was known
and worshiped prior to the Jewish makeover of EL into EL's son, Yahweh
to create the man-made artifice, YHWH. God in God's way to educate me,
handed me the right book from a friend's hands who said, "Read this."
Semitic Language Prof. John Gray's "Near Eastern Mythologies" where you
find out how much has been lost in the Jewish deception for us
Christians. EL Elyon was a great Father god, the very best male deity
ever, and actually the very oldest male deity with altars to EL found in
Syria going back 6000 years. EL ruled the Canaanite pantheon of gods and
goddesses with wisdom and compassion, not force and fear which the lower
war gods used. There are no Canaanite cuniform records of EL ever
punishing human beings for sins yet it was to EL that Canaanites turned
to for forgiveness of their sins. Here are appellations of EL that are
unimaginable being applied to Yahweh: "EL the Compassionate One", "EL
the Kindly One", "EL the Friendly One". Canaanite peoples loved EL and
felt so comfortable with Him that they could make jokes about Him,
something worthy of death if Jews joked about YHWH. EL Elyon is Jesus'
true "Abba", his true "Daddy".
And by finding EL as the
rightful Father Face of the Godhead, I went zooming past the old Gnostic
mistaken belief this world is made a trap for the soul. No, Creation is
where humanity evolves into God at "the End of Days". The Spirit cannot
be manifest without the material world so Creation is absolutely
necessary for the evolution of humanity into God to take place. Yes,
Creation is not paradise, it runs on life and death opposition, on and
off dualities that guarantee an unpleasant physical end for all of us
and much hardship in between for many. The spiritual world is outside of
this yet isn't. Can't have one without the other in Creation so Creation
becomes actually our Problem Set for figuring out as we evolve through
time. Once we do figure out how Creation works, we will have become God
ourselves and there it is. The point of existence. The Bible doesn't
tell you this but now you can know it too because I teach the Celestial
Elohim, the Holy Family, is led by EL Elyon
EL Elyon in the
ancient Canaanite religion was the "Father of the Divine Assembly". That
same "Divine Assembly" is mentioned in Psalm 82 as the "Congregation of
the Mighty (Ones)" and it is the same as the Hebrew conception of the
Elohim which again shows EL's leadership.
latipanu Žilu dupaŽidu, "the Compassionate God of Mercy." He is not
easily moved to anger. The Kindly One, He blesses us and He forgives us
when we do things we shouldn't. If we say we are sorry, this is usually
sufficient, and He accepts this as atonement. He mourns for our pain and
rejoices in our happiness.
`Anat says to ŽEl:
your decree, ŽEl, is
your wisdom is forever;
A life of good fortune is
ŽAsherah says to ŽEl:
You are great, ŽEl,
indeed you are wise,
the gray hair of your
beard indeed instructs you."
"Father of the Divine Assembly" on the "Mount of Assembly". EL ruled
this Heavenly Council but He wasn't a jealous God for He shared
co-dominion with Asherah, and He wasn't a Storm God like Yahweh, Baal,
or even Zeus, ready to send a lightening bolt down on anyone who
disobeyed him. EL didn't punish humans for their foibles living in
Creation with its natural laws dividing Life between order and chaos.
And it was to EL to whom Jesus cried out from the cross. "My God EL, My
God EL, why hast thou forsaken Me"? before He died because the Spirit of
EL did leave Jesus at death and left most of traditional Christian
communities when Paul brought back Yahweh's schizophrenic Love/Hate
Spirit into the religion and made Christianity the religion most people
know today with its horrible history of spiritual repression, love and
hate combined. Jesus was named after Yahweh but he knew his Good Father
EL and tried his best to fulfill the transformation of Yahweh into EL by
initiating the Spirit of Christ as unconditional love and compassion for
all in need of healing and comfort.

shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the
name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of

EL is the name
of Jesus' God and Ariel is the name of spiritual Jerusalem.*

the feast of Sol Invictus [celebrated on December 25 as Dies Natalis
Solis Invicti], always marked the end of a festival even more ancient
but equally dedicated to the celebration of the self-renewal of nature:
the Saturnalia. Based on the mythical era of the god Saturn, supposed to
have been an age of happiness, peace, and brotherhood among all men, the
Saturnalia in those days was a time in which the Romans abandoned
themselves to touching demonstrations of friendship and affection. Even
slaves had the right to sit at table with their masters and be served by
them during the festival. It was a simple matter for Christianity--which
was based fundamentally on universal brotherhood--to replace the heathen
belief in the age of Saturn without impairing the admirable customs of
