The Mt. Sinai Event
A meeting with God
About three months after their departure from Egypt, the Israelites were directed to prepare themselves for a meeting with the LORD at Mt. Sinai. The classic movie "The Ten Commandments" depicts this historic event, but unfortunately overlooks many of the intriguing details written in the text itself. These details, which I have brought up many times in chat rooms, remain some of my favorite mysteries—mysteries I am still trying to solve. To my mind, these details speak of extraterrestrials, a mothership, high technology, and a possible link to a recently rediscovered substance called the White Powder of Gold. Could it be that this is the substance from which the manna was made? Let's take a fresh look at this fascinating story and see what we can make of it in light of what we know today.
Why Mt. Sinai?
Exodus 19:1 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
Looking at a map of their journey from Egypt to Canaan, we can see that their trip to Mt. Sinai was most definitely not on the way.
Why then did the LORD choose Mt. Sinai as the location to meet with them? One possible explanation is that he had other business there at Mt. Sinai—to refine the White Powder of Gold from the volcanic ore of Mt. Sinai in order to make the manna which he was feeding them. The text of the story makes it clear that the LORD wanted the people to see something truly impressive so as to make them believe in him. The description of his landing on Mt. Sinai was indeed impressive, as we'll see.
Manna: the food of angels
No one knows what the mysterious manna was made of, but there's a fascinating verse in the book of Psalms where it refers to manna as the 'corn of heaven', and more specifically the food of angels:
Psalms 78:22-25 Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel; Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation: Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven, And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.
And if, indeed, manna is the food of angels, there may well have been angels on board the 'ship' who also partook of the manna.
Now back to our story...
Exodus 19:2-4 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount. And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.
The bible makes no mention of God transporting them by air ("eagle's wings"). Yet this is certainly what this reference sounds like. Indeed such an event would be impressive, and impressive events are what God is pointing out here.
Exodus 19:5-6 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.
Here we see about the only explanation for the question: why did God choose one people to foster, and not the whole world? A kingdom of priests implies that they were intended to bring the rest of the world to God.
Exodus 19:6-13 These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD. And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the LORD. And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai. And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death: There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.
What this sounds like to me is that there is going to be a radiation-like hazard during the time while the ship is landing on the mountain. The LORD commands that any man or beast which is in that danger zone at that time must be killed, not as a punishment (otherwise beasts would not be mentioned) but rather perhaps to prevent spreading a contamination such as radiation poisoning. However, after the ship lands and finishes what ever it was doing to cause this danger, the trumpet will sound the 'all-clear', and then it will be safe to approach the mountain.
Exodus 19:14-20 And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes. And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives. And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice. And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.
While Moses is gone up, let's pause here and ask a few questions. Why did the landing of this 'ship', which I assume it was, cause all this fire? And why did the whole mountain quake? Some might assume this was done purely for its theatrical effect, to impress the people. Others might speculate that these were the unavoidable effects of the ship’s engine as it landed on the mountain. However, from what we’ve learned today about alien technology, there is no smoke and flame or quaking involved—the ships are silent. So what I think is at least possible is that this quaking, and smoke and flames were the result of a mining operation to get at the volcanic ore inside Mt. Sinai, and to refine the White Powder of Gold from the ore, and use it as one of the ingredients to make the manna.
At this point, what I'm suggesting probably sounds implausible, but there is more, later in this story, which helps make the theory a little more plausible. Hint, it has to do with what Moses did with the golden calf. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.
The LORD's beautiful appearance is shown to many
I'm skipping over some of the details of giving of the laws, which are all very interesting, but I cannot skip this fascinating part about the LORD making an appearance before a select group of Israelites.
Exodus 24:9-11 Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.
The LORD invites Moses up alone
And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them. And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God. And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them. And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount. And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel. And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.
Notice that Moses is in the midst of the 'cloud' for a 6-day waiting period. What could be the reason for this? An acclimation period? In his book CoEvolution, contactee Alec Newald reports that when he was transported out of his car, he found himself in a foggy (read 'cloudy') realm where he could see only white for 24 hours. After that waiting period, he was then taken on board the ship.
Moses remains with God there for forty days and nights, receiving among other things the very specific instructions about how to build the ark of the covenant, which called for large amounts of gold. However, being gone so long, his people below had become impatient.
The golden calf
Exodus 32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
But from where did the gold come for this golden calf? To answer this, recall the story of the Exodus, wherein the LORD instructs them to borrow as much gold and silver as they could from their Egyptian neighbors just prior to their exodus:
Exodus 11:2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver and jewels of gold.
This is interesting because it would appear the LORD had designs for this gold, namely to make the ark of the covenant. But some of it was used here, instead, to make the golden calf. When the LORD saw it, he told Moses to go down now, and that he was going to smite them all except Moses, and start fresh with Moses, but Moses talks him out of it, and goes down from the mount. What happens next is truly perplexing, unless we consider the White Powder of Gold again.
When Moses sees the golden calf, here is what the bible says he did:
Exodus 32:19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.
Amazing irony: The people broke God’s law about graven images, and Moses, in response, broke the graven image of God’s laws.
Poor Moses, who had hoped his people missed him, returns to find everybody singing and dancing as if they don't miss him a bit, and as God points out, they have already gone astray from his leadership. He must have been truly angry, to toss the beautifully engraved tablets, the crowning glory of his visit with God against the rocks breaking them to bits. But what happens next is what is truly intriguing:
Exodus 32:20 And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.
What a remarkably odd thing to do. And it hardly makes sense. How does burning the calf in the fire lead to grinding it to powder? Here we have arrived what is perhaps the most convincing verse in support of my theory that somehow, all of this has to do with the White Powder of Gold. You see, the conversion of metallic gold to monatomic gold involves heating and cooling. Ancient alchemists recorded that the gold had to be repeatedly heated and cooled in a bath of special liquids. At the end of this process, the metallic bonds break down, and the gold becomes brittle and can be crushed into a powder. But how would Moses know anything about this?
Moses the Egyptian
Anyone who's been keeping up with the reports and books by author Laurence Gardner knows that he has uncovered evidence that suggests that the Egyptians knew very well how to make this magical substance, the White Powder of Gold, and that this is what the Pharaoh's used to attain god-like qualities: perfect health, telepathy, bio-trans-location, and weightlessness. All of this presumably due to the superconductive quality of the White Power of Gold, which, when ingested, is thought to possibly transform the human body into a superconductor, such that inter-cell communication is done over super-conducting paths. None of this is yet proven, however. For some unknown reason, no major research group, public or private, has shown any interest in this substance, so it is left to a small group of researchers who are still exploring the substance. The results of this research can be found at Barry Carter's ORMUS site.
Getting back to Moses, here's a quote which reveals just how much Moses knew about Egyptian science:
Acts 7:22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
If indeed Moses knew how to make White Powder of Gold from metallic gold, this explains how the gold could have been mixed with water and drunk. And it would appear that, while it may have been viewed as some sort of odd punishment, Moses may have hoped that it would heal them of their stubborn ways and perhaps place them into telepathic contact with God, like he was. Whether that worked or not is not clear from the rest of the story, but keep in mind that God's plans for these people were indeed to make of them the priests of the world.
Moses goes back up the Mount.
After this incident with the gold, Moses goes back up the mountain and again, stays for forty days with God. And this time, he notes that he neither ate nor drank (nor had need of it). This is not the only time that someone visiting with God loses their need to eat and drink. In The Secrets of Enoch, Enoch, having just returned from a long visit with God, is invited by his son, Methuselah, to eat, and here is his response:
Secrets of Enoch, Chapter 56 Listen, child! Since the time when the Lord anointed me with the ointment of his glory, food has not come into me, and earthly pleasure my soul does not remember, nor do I desire anything earthly.
Moses face glows
Rounding out this bizarre story of Moses and his meeting with God is the business with his face. Upon his return down from his second visit with God, Moses face is now literally glowing light, although he didn't realize this himself until they told him. It was glowing so much so that he began to wear a veil over his face to avoid scaring his people:
Exodus 34:27-35 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel. And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments. And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him. And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them. And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai. And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face. But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded. And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
And so much more to this story
I've had to skip a lot of this richly detailed account of man meeting with God in order to portray the highlights I found most interesting. There are dozens of other fascinating clues of technology, and I encourage you to read for yourself this amazing story and see what you can make of it. These ancient events reveal highly advanced technology, beyond anything we yet know of today. As such, the Old Testament springs to life as a book about our future, and not an irrelevant, dusty old unbelievable story. And more than that, it reveals some clues about some beings they called the LORD and angels, who interacted with us, using that technology. Just who the Old Testament LORD was is truly a mystery, at least to me. Whether he is the Father of Jesus is questionable to me, but I do believe he had man's best interest in mind. This comes through clearly in some of his statutes. And though he has been called, with some justification from an honest reading of the Old Testament itself, a barbaric and cruel God, he also demonstrated, through some of his laws, that he was good at heart, and wanted his people to be also. For what it's worth, I'll state my personal feelings: I reserve judgement on this Old Testament god. But I have true feelings for the mysterious Father of Jesus, whomever that may be, and especially his Son. For this Father and Son seem more like the kind of beings I could fall in love with, and in fact, have.
