slaying Fallen Angel
Celestials have been described in religious-historical texts as transcendental entities that have intervened in human civilization in the form of guardians and protectors.
Celestials have played leading roles in
helping humanity deal with extraterrestrial entities or other life
forms that have the power to significantly impact on human
civilization. Celestials appear to play critical roles in helping
resolve conflicts associated with the use of advanced technologies.
In some cases, celestials have directly intervened against
extraterrestrial entities that have violated what appear to be
universal norms such as non-intervention and the diffusion of
advanced technologies to unprepared populations.
The Nephilim subsequently begin to interact with humanity by interbreeding:
The above passage points to
extraterrestrials interbreeding with humans as a sin or violation of
universal law. Presumably this stemmed from the progeny of such
unions possessing genetic advantages that would inevitably led to
them becoming rulers or exerting disproportionate influence to their
numbers. Furthermore, extraterrestrial technologies would likely be
shared with such progeny to assist them in asserting their rule over
This reflected cuneiform accounts of how the Anunnaki had helped in establishing the Sumerian civilization in Mesopotamia around 3800 BCE.:
Whereas extraterrestrials are depicted as teachers of advanced technologies and civilization, celestials are depicted as instruments of universal will and high ethical standards. In the process of teaching advanced technologies to humanity, the extraterrestrials have fomented much devastating warfare and suffering that has led to humanity lamenting to heaven for relief.
The Book of Enoch describes the conflict that then occurs between the Nephilim and a group ‘righteous’ angelic entities or ‘celestials’:
It appears that the celestials are concerned about the way in which advanced technologies have been disseminated to an unprepared humanity, and how human sovereignty has been usurped by the progeny of the Nephilim.
A specific complaint is that extraterrestrials have “revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which men were striving to learn.” [Ch. 9:6]
The celestials are then depicted as
carrying out universal will insofar as they intervene to end the
rule of the Nephilim that have brought about an unbalanced state of
affairs on the planet in terms of the level of advanced technologies
and ethical behavior.
The ancient wars fought among the extraterrestrials that used advanced weapons that destroyed their cities are described by the researchers Zecharia Sitchin and Joseph Farrell.
Finally, the Archangel Michael is asked to capture the leader of fallen angels, Semjaza, and his cohorts, and imprison them in hidden locations throughout the Earth:
In the above passage, the celestials led by Archangel Michael are depicted as protectors of humanity, and ended what appears to have been a highly unjust and violent civilization dominated by the Nephilim and their progeny.
It appears that the extraterrestrials main fault was to have tempted humanity with advanced technology and knowledge when it was not ready to responsibly integrate this. This led to an imbalance between humanity’s level of technological sophistication and ethical standards.
The celestials therefore appear in the
Book of Enoch as ultimate protectors of a humanity that is easily
led astray by small groups of extraterrestrials that exploit human
elite’s desire for advanced technologies and knowledge. Rectifying
the imbalance between advanced technology and highly developed
ethical standards appear to be the main goal of the celestials.
Will history repeat itself with
celestials directly intervening in human affairs to end the
influence of a small but historically influential group of
extraterrestrials collaborating with human elites?
