Technically God was doing a mop-up from what the flood did. The remnant were allowed to live as they were what the Law was based on and the 10 Commandments had to be in place before the giants were fully removed.

"If the head of the house hath been called Beelzebub, how much more the members of his household!" -- Matthew 10:25

And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit. -- Mark 3

1 Samuel 15:3:

Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

“Only in the cities of these peoples that the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, you shall not leave alive anything that breathes. But you shall utterly destroy them: the Hittite and the Amorite, the Canaanite and the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that they may not teach you to do according to all their detestable things which they have done for their gods, so that you would sin against the Lord your God”(Deuteronomy 20:16–18, NASB).

Psalm 137:9:

Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
 Quoting: Akhnaton


Part of the reason might have been to make it clear that victory was not intended to make the victors rich(er). Victory was to prove The Lord was the powerful one. No slaves, no flocks, no living capital for the victors. War was not to be a profit-making enterprise. So even if they won, they didn't win like most people in those days defined winning.

Almost like there was not much even for the winners. Not much to show for all their own losses.

Re: If God loves children then why did he order the Israelites to kill the children of the Amalekites and Canaanites?
As others have noted, the reason 'God' ordered the Israelites to completely exterminate the existing tribes that were in the land of Canaan was because those tribes (eg, Amalekites, Canaanites, etc) were "Nephelim" or "giants", which were LITERAL OFFSPRING OF SATAN.

The so-called "jews" are NOT Israelites, but rather descendants of these Canaanites (ie, Esau married Canaanite women).


This is how Yahushua the Messiah could say that the Pharisees/jews were literal offspring of Satan:

Yahshua speaking to the Jewish Pharisees:

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do." (John 8:44)

"Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?" (Matthew 23:33)

*Note: "generation" in the above verse is from the Greek "gennema", literally meaning "offspring". Check for yourself in Strong's Concordance and a Hebrew and Greek Lexicon.

"Don't be a minister of the letter, for the letter ( literal killeth ) the understanding.





1 Samuel 15:3:

Now go and smite Amalek ( the lower mind/ego), and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

This is a statement to destroy all that the ego has, the ox is a symbol of the animal nature, infants are symbols of thoughts that proceed from lower egoic thinking) men are symbols of mind, yet it is mind under the influence of the ego, women are symbols of the lower emotuons, all these things must be killed out of a persons nature.


“Only in the cities ( cities are a symbol of human consciousness)of these peoples that the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance ( the inheritance is the higher divine renewed mind ), you shall not leave alive anything that breathes ( again the ego and all of the thoughts that come from egoic thinking has to be destroyed ). But you shall utterly destroy them: the Hittite and the Amorite, the Canaanite and the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that they may not teach you to do according to all their detestable things which they have done for their gods, so that you would sin against the Lord your God”(Deuteronomy 20:16–18, NASB).

All of the ites are symbols of various aspects of ones consciousness and ones thoughts that arise from the lower mind)

Psalm 137:9:

Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.



The stones are the pineal glands of each of us, to dash the little ones ( lower thoughts that are the off srping of the ego ) must be brought to the brain and impact the pineal stone, then the ego will be brought under control)

NEVER read ancient mythology LITERALLY, the bible is a book os spiritual allegory and parables.

Yahweh, the regional "God" of this planet, shares many of the same problems that incarnates of this planet have, serving the self being the main problem.

Yahweh is not the same "God" as the Infinite Creator.

Re: If God loves children then why did he order the Israelites to kill the children of the Amalekites and Canaanites?
Isaiah 13:15-18 Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children.




And you really thought that all of the murder and wholesale slaughter of human beings in that O.T. book was really talking about the killing of real live human beings, that's because you have gone into churches your whole life and have been totally mislead as how to read your bible, your ancient book of mythology.


Who, in their right mind would have anything to do with a Literal god that would have no mercy on HELPLESS babies, that would be one sick god. Children will be dashed to death right before their eyes.


Children are the misguided offspring of lower mind thinking, these thoughts must be killed out, or one cannot ever hope to reach Christ-hood. They are slaughtered and dashed to death in Meditation.


Here's one for you, the constellation ORION the hunter with his club in his right hand is a symbol of the biblical God hunting down and killing out your lower ego thoughts, but who knew that, did those church buffoons teach you this? NO!!


The God of the Bible and the Quran, and the Greek myths, never ordered nor killed any real live person, because these things only happen in the myths. But when you read these myths literally, it will activate your lower animal nature, and you will rally for war, every time the war bell rings.


The God or gods will then take on any nationality that the war involves, God sure has many faces, but they are all painted by man, in the darkness and recesses of his own lower mind. God is a Fabrication of the UN-conscious "bicameral mind". Anyone that reads ancient MYTHS Literally, are UN-conscious beasts.


Fully awakened conscious human beings CANNOT kill others, cannot kill animals, cannot kill even small insects, except in the FIGHT or FLIGHT syndrome, when one is in imminent danger for their life or the lives of loved ones, one can kill another under this pretense, this is GOD ordained.





The Bible is filled with this kind of language from God, Kill everything that breathes, as the command goes. " But he loves you." Yes, because every single verse in the entire bible where God is ordering the wholesale slaughter men, women and children is really talking about killing all of the negative thoughts, which are the offspring of the EGO centered consciousness has to be killed.


When you are in meditation, GOD is busy hunting down these thoughts and slaughtering them, Joshua and Moses are symbols of the higher aspect of the mind, that assist in killing out the lower emotions and the thoughts that proceed from this very harmful destructive thinking.

The young virgins are always kept alive, because they represent the thoughts that have not come from the lower, but are higher quality, thoughts that create harmony, uplifting to others etc...


Below is a page where god commands the killing in the Old Testament, these are just a few of Gods killing orders, have a look at it, and see if you can figure it out. The key is, that the killings are always about the EGO and the lower mind thoughts. " Don't be a MINISTER of the LETTER { Literal }, for the letter { literal } Kills". " Which things are an allegory" " Oh doesn't he the lord speak in PARABLES?" Yes he does, now I finally get it!!!!!!!!!!!!! And so should you!!!

Re: If God loves children then why did he order the Israelites to kill the children of the Amalekites and Canaanites?
"Do NOT be a minister of the LETTER (Literal) for the LETTER (Literal) Killeth", says the Bible. Here are 28 more verses that warn against reading the Bible LITERALLY.

This little Blog is about trying to help shed some light on the truth concerning religion, the truth about the ancient Mythological texts such as the bible. The entire Bible is ancient Mythology, and not to be read LITERALLY at all.

Then why do they, the preachers, voodoo priest craft, and TV evangelists teach the LITERAL interpretation, when the very book they read from says not to.



It screams from every page, not to read it Literally, because snakes, do not talk, donkeys do not talk, people do not get up out of graves and walk, burning bushes do not speak, at least not when you're sober. These things do happen in Mythology though.



See the other verses, to get the idea.



THE BIBLE AS SYMBOL


Our first order of business in this quest is to see if we can justify considering the Bible as symbolic rather then literal. We must use the Bible itself.


1.2Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. So here is the Bible itself telling us not to take it literally.


2. Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory: the definition of a myth includes the term allegory. Here again the Bible tells us it is symbolic.


3. Matthew 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: The Bible is saying that all of Jesus statements were symbolic.


4. Mark 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:


5. Psalm 78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: Here the Bible states that GOD speaks in parables . And what are dark sayings of old. Obviously they are symbolic statements.


6. In the Book of Proverbs describes wisdom. It explains how one becomes wise. Proverbs 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. Dark sayings is mytholoy


7. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 2 cor.4:3


8. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 2 cor. 3:14


9. We should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter." (Romans 7:6)


10. Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak in parables? EZ:20 Here God speaks in parables


11. 1Cr 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory. Here it says god ordained the hidden wisdom, even before the world


12. Eze. 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a parable unto the house of Israel. God orders riddles


13. Jdg.14:19 And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and slew thirty men of them, and took their spoil, and gave change of garments unto them which expounded the riddle.


And his anger was kindled, and he went up to his father's house. Here it says god was pleased when they cracked the riddle, and rewarded them.


14. Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of GOD to conceal a thing: but honor of kings is to search out a matter. And here its Gods honor to conceal things, and make you figure it out.


15. 2Cor.4:3,4 "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."


16. Isaiah 9,10 And he said, Go and tell this people, hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes


17. Col 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints.


18. JOB 27:11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.


19. MAT 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.


20. psalm 89 might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world."


21. Proverbs 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.


22. 1 cor 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:


23. IS. 48:6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.


24. Eziekel 3:5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel;


25. exodus 4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?


26. exodus 4:12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.


27. "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God." (Jesus Christ - The Holy Bible: Matthew 22:29)


28. Hebrews 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.


Here God is saying that his word is like milk to you, as a babe must drink milk before it can eat solid food. God is saying his word is for the the one who is ready for meat, in other words, when one is ready for the deeper meaning, this is the meat, for the one full of age (wisdom). Reading Gods word literally is MILK, it is for the unskillful, and they will not understand.


Here the fact that this is all consciousness is made clear. It says to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God. Where is the Kingdom of God ? .


(Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.) The statement concludes by saying that "unto them that are without".

Outside of the meditative state. Outside of the inner realm of consciousness where exists the Kingdom of God.


Here we see that God speaks in mysteries, riddles and parables, He puts riddles in peoples mouths, he shuts their eyes and ears, he sends strange and hard speeches, he sends dark sayings, and that is Gods glory that he conceal a thing, he imparts secret wisdom and make you and I search it.

His word is as milk to the unskillful, without age (reason).


There's no doubt that the bible is showing you that, you can't read it at face value, you have to look for the deeper meaning, the secret wisdom, the dark sayings, the hidden and so forth.

The problem with Christianity as a whole, including all the pastors and TV evangelist pay no attention to these verses and read and teach the bible literally, which is an abomination unto god.

The word is Mysterious and you have to search it out, the truth is not given to the vain, to the once a week jesus mercenary.


There's no doubt is there, about what is being said here, the Bible was written in a certain metaphorical, symbolic language of old, which is mythology.


Words of wisdom from the Scriptures of Islam

Of course these verses from the Quran are purely myth just like the Bible, but they don't know that.


Kill those who join other gods with God wherever you may find them. Holy Qu'ran, Sura ix, 5-6


Those who believe fight in the cause of God. Holy Qu'ran, Sura iv, 76


Say to the Infidels: if they desist from their unbelief, what is now past shall be forgiven; but if they return to it, they have already before them the doom of the ancients! Fight then against them till strife be at an end, and the religion be all of it God's. Holy Qu'ran, Sura viii, 39-42


Let those who fight in the cause of God who barter the life of this world for that which is to come; for whoever fights on God's path, whether he is killed or triumphs, We will give him a handsome reward. Holy Qu'ran, Sura iv, 74


Your wives are a tilth for you, so go into your tilth when you like, and do good beforehand for yourselves. Holy Qu'ran, Sura ii, 223


When you meet the unbelievers, strike off their heads; then when you have made wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives. Holy Qu'ran, Sura xlvii.4

"And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple."

"And Jesus said to them, See you not all these things ( physical worship bldgs)? truly I say to you, There shall not be left here one stone on top of another, that shall not be thrown down."

It's a good thing that G-d does NOT answer prayers.

If G-d or the g-ds listened to the prayers of human beings, then all humankind would quickly perish, since they constantly pray for many evils to befall one another.

EPICURUS


"Religious symbolism" as applied to man's understanding of God changed every 2,160 years and along with that was man's understanding of God and His revelation and message. The "path" intended for mankind's salvation was being written and elaborated upon by God in the blackboard in the Sky.


This is the message that God has consistently spoken to mankind from Heaven since the creation of the Universe. Man is to reflect this Cosmic Order of Heaven by following and implementing the same Divine Patterns and Cycles that operate "Above" and bring them into being "Below". As Above, So Below

Mythically...(personification of the Sun and its path through the Zodiac and the 4 seasons of the year)
Mystically...(expressing a hidden metaphysical teaching, a secret wisdom, given under strict and exacting conditions to approved candidates by the Masters of Wisdom regarding the descent of the Soul/Logos into matter as well as its intended development during the life of a person, ie., mankind).

Re: If God loves children then why did he order the Israelites to kill the children of the Amalekites and Canaanites?
Psalm 137:6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; ( that's yoga, right in your bible ) if I prefer not Jerusalem { the higher mind } above my chief joy. 137:7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it ( the kundalini ), even to the foundation thereof { the foundation is the sacrum }. 137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed ( the lower emotional mind ); happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.


Little ones are misguided lower nature thoughts that come from this lower mind thinking, we are to dash these against the stones, they are the off spring of the daughter of Babylon ( the lower emotional mind, under the control of the pharaoh, the ego ) The stones are the pineal glands of all of you, the stone kills the lower thoughts ( little ones ). That's better isn't it?


One must realize the figures of speech in the bible, understand that in the past, the ancients used metaphors, symbols, personifications and geographical locations to weave the myth.

Lucifer/Jesus/Satan etc... are the root chakra at your sacrum, When the energy is raised to the Heart Chakra you experience life in unconditional love, you will reach a MIND STATE of heaven. To operate from your lower emotions, you have fallen from heaven, one must have discipline towards meditation, which opens the right hemisphere of the brain {god}, or the higher consciousness.

THE BIBLE AS SYMBOL

Our first order of business in this quest is to see if we can justify considering the Bible as symbolic rather then literal.

We must use the Bible itself.


THE BIBLE ITSELF SAYS IT IS SYMBOLIC AND SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LITERALLY

1.2Corinthians 3:6 Who also has made us ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.

So here is the Bible itself telling us not to take it literally.

AGAIN THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT STORIES ARE ALLEGORY

2. Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory:

Remember that as we showed the definition of a myth, it included the term allegory.

Here again the Bible tells us it is symbolic.


THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS ALWAYS SPOKE SYMBOLICALLY

3. Matthew 13:34 All these things spoke Jesus to the multitude in parables; and without a parable he did not speak to them:

The Bible is saying that all of Jesus statements were symbolic.


THE STORIES ALL HAVE HIDDEN MEANINGS BUT TO UNDERSTAND THEM YOU MUST ENTER WITHIN YOURSELF IN MEDITATION AS JESUS INSTRUCTED. "Be silent before the Sovereign LORD".


4. Mark 4:11 And he said to them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but to them that are without, all these things are done in parables:


NOTICE THAT LINE ABOVE. THEM THAT ARE WITHOUT DO NOT UNDERSTAND, ONLY THEM THAT ARE WITHIN, WHO PRACTICE THE SINGLE EYE AS JESUS INSTRUCTED

Here the fact that this is all consciousness is made clear.


Bill Donahue of Hiddenmeanings


It says to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God.


(¯`v´¯)
♥.`•.¸.•´ ♥ ♥...





In two thousand years who has proclaimed that all of those crazy nonsensical stories in the bible were MYTHOLOGY? Who has proclaimed from the pulpit that the word of God in the bible is written in deep symbolism and never LITERAL? SEE towards bottom of page! religion has kept all the true spiritual truths in the bible locked up, so that you could not utilize the knowledge for your own personal spiritual growth.



THE OLD TESTAMENT SPEAKS OF THE SAME MYSTERY

Psalm 78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

Here the Bible states that GOD speaks in parables .

And what are dark sayings of old.

Obviously they are symbolic statements.

Finally the Book of Proverbs describes wisdom.

It explains how one becomes wise.

TO HAVE WISDOM ONE MUST UNDERSTAND DARK SAYINGS

Proverbs 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

OBVIOUSLY THE BIBLE SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LITERALLY AND NEITHER SHOULD THE CRUCIFIXION

Thus we have substantial evidence throughout the Bible to suggest that it is a symbolic book, and should not be taken literally.

With this evidence, we can then proceed to look at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as a symbolic story.

Bill Donahue Hiddenmeanings


Now you can't proceed any further with understanding until you put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest [is] holy ground.


What does it mean? The shoes are on the feet, the feet represent the physical lower mind, yet the shoes must be removed, because the shoes represent the ego (protection) to the physical, the physical must take second place to the spiritual, the holy ground is the mind under the higher spiritual influence, so come hither, but first remove your shoes (ego).


OH WELL! I guess they will never get it. They can just turn left at ROUTE 9 at the crossroads with Jack Van Nincompoop.

Because they were evil hybrids, giants. Not fully human, they were an abomination to God......and mankind.

This is a long and in depth topic OP that requires alot of study to completely understand it. It can't all be explained in one paragraph.

1 Chron. 2:55,,,, all of those inner mixed with the fallen angels.

Christ told us in Mat. 23:1,2,3 about those that inner mixed and they took over the seat of Moses. High priest seat.

And the Kenites rule the world today...

You have incarnated on this planet to work through your karma and to understand polarity. You must learn to serve others instead of the self.

Your soul is immortal, and your temporary life on this planet is just a "game" of sorts.

1 Samuel 15:3:

which they have done for their gods,(Deuteronomy 20:16–18, NASB).

 Quoting: Akhnaton


Off topic. but this sounds like a case for plural gods. I take this as God saying there are other gods

Re: If God loves children then why did he order the Israelites to kill the children of the Amalekites and Canaanites?
The simple answer is always the best answer. The people who lived back then needed an excuse to kill people; men, women, children, cattle, etc. So they simply told themselves that God commanded it. It is so similar to today when we see Islam people who blow up a bus. Do you think they are telling themselves that God commanded them to do it? OF COURSE THEY ARE.

There is nothing complicated or mysterious about this at all. There is no God, end of questions. That is why we see thousands of children who starve to death, who are raped and abused. Do you think that is because some God wants it to be that way? Or are God's hands tied behind his back? Is he helpless to stop this? If so, then why worship a being like that? Or can you accept the simple answer. There is no God. This world operates EXACTLY the way you would expect it to operate if there were no Gods.
