Sumerian Tablet - Enki the Great Satan and God of the Abyse
Sumerian Tablet - Enki the Great Satan and God of the Abyse.
It shows the Sumerian God equivalent of Satan called Enki climbing over mountain peaks.
Underneath him there is a horned lamb a symbol of the lamb of god and the 7 headed beast of revelation.
Enki is where we get the word Loki from, who was a horned god and a Norse God equivalent of Satan aswell.
Enki's holding in one hand what looks like to be an eagle, which is a symbol of imperialism.
It appears in the tablet that water is dripping from Enki as he rise from the waters.
The water dripping from Enki could be the Euphrates and Tigris river.
Another name for Enki was Ea which is Akkadian and literally means the house of water.
So Enki is the God of water or the Abyse to be more precise.
What is interesting is water used to be associated with the Underworld, for example the Mayans used to bury some of their dead inside flooded caves.
According to Maya myth, the souls of the dead had to follow a dog with night vision on a horrific and watery path and endure a myriad of challenges before they could rest in the afterlife.
And as you all know, the underworld also known as Hell, is associated with the Devil.
Also we associate words such as the abyse with hell and with the ocean.
Abyse is also where we get the word oblivion from (ab-blivion).
Also aquifers as a source of water were considered important in the desert, an aquifer was called an abzu, immediately we see the relation to the word abyse.
Also the word abysmal describes something being appalling.
So we see from this, Enki being a god of the abyse has lots of negative connotations. He would be associated with things such as floods and droubts and other water related problems, such as salt water contamination of aquifers, or aquifers running dry. Or if there was a storm at sea and people drowned. So we see that it would have been impossible for the ancients to see Enki as a god of good but rather as evil.
The god inanana is using a mace to hit the sun god shamesh who is setting below the mountain peaks.
This is not a god that gets his hands dirty, he gets his minions to do the dirty work. If someone was dying of thirst in the desert, he would sit back and watch, while stroking one of his pets like an evil villain. Thats the overall impression I get.
The funny thing is people make out Enki to be the good guy, even though he clearly would never have been. He was a god to be feared, not loved. But a lesser evil than the other gods.
