Excerpt from Anunnaki: Legacy of the Gods: Techno-savvy ET Goldminers Who Posed as Divine by Sasha Lessin, Ph.D. (Anthropology, U.C.L.A.) and Janet Kira Lessin (Professor, School of Ancient Studies)


After the Deluge of 13,000 years ago, the lands that had been spaceports for the Anunnaki goldmining expedition from the planet Nibiru to Earth were ruined–covered with mud and water.  The Mission Control Center in Nippur [Iraq] was buried beyond recovery.  Only the Lebanon Landing Place of their old airbases functioned. The Anunnaki needed “a new Mission Control Center to replace the one that had existed before in Nippur.”

 The Anunnaki decided to build a new spaceport on the Sinai Peninsula, with its long flat landing area and a new Mission Control Center in Mount Moriah, the future Jerusalem.  These new space facilities were supposed to be under control of Commander Enlil and his clan, the Enlilites.  Enlil’s son Nannar was to control Sinai and Nannar’s son Shamah was to control the Mission Control Center in the heart of Enlilite Canaan.  The Council selected Jerusalem on the basis of geometry; it was  the place “equidistant from the space-related facilities.  Jerusalem was to be the new Mission Control for Earth-Nibiru travel and communication. 

Enlilites temporarily lost the space facilities in Canaan when but Enkiite-Earthlings led by Ziasudra’s son Ham and then by the Enkiite Prince Seth settled in the Jerusalem area. Enlil’s forces, which his sons Ninurta and Adad and grandchildren Inanna and Utu launched “the Second Pyramid War” against Enki, Marduk, Nergal, Horus and their Earthlings. The Enlilites defeate the Enkiites. In the Peace Treaty of 8670BCE Enki ceded the Sinai and its Spaceport [“the Restricted Zone”] and the Mission Control Center, the future Jerusalem [the “Radiant Place”; ie, place of the power source]; Wars: 130, 156, 174].


In 1003 BCE, Israelite leader David, a direct descendent of the Anunnaki of Hebron, conquered Jerusalem. Enlil forbade him to build the temple but David readied the site Enlil indicated its site for Solomon, David’s successor [End: 191].  David had thirty-three hundred foremen guide seventy thousand carriers and eighty thousand stonecutters in the hills as they took large blocks of quality stone for the Temple’s foundation.

Solomon built Enlil-Yahweh’s first permanent temple on huge stones in 957 BCE on huge stones–too heavy to move and fit in place without Anunnaki technology (so we know that’s how the stones were moved).  Solomon’s Temple became the center of governance for the Jews for the next 410 years, when Nebuchadnessar destroyed it.



Temple of the Mount Foundation Stones, Jerusalem Several massive stones 'under-pin' the Temple mount. They are estimated to weigh around 500 tons each. They were found when excavations along the western 'Wailing wall' uncovered them. Masonry similar to this: Baalbek in Lebanon, and at Giza, Egypt.

The Temple of the Mount Foundation Stones at Jerusalem features massive stones of around 500 tons each. They were found when excavations along the western ‘Wailing wall’ uncovered them. 

David gave Solomon a scale model and architectural drawings for the Temple. The Temple’s east-west axis aligned with the equinox.


Solomon set the temple so the sun at dawn entered the Tabernacle at spring and autumn equinoxes.  He piped water to the Temple through tunnels from Hebron, 30 miles away. 

The temple featured a 100 x 200 foot main hall and a smaller room for Moses’ Ark.  Solomon put the Ark on the rock where Abraham started to kill his son Isaac to prove himself loyal to Enlil.  (The rock’s now covered and surrounded by the Muslim Dome of the Rock) The new temple replaced the portable one Moses made in the desert, local sanctuaries and altars in the hills [End: 194]

The Temple complex, overall 1000 feet x 1000 feet, had a large basin (called the “Brazen Sea”) 10 cubits wide brim to brim, 5 cubits deep and with a circumference of 30 cubits around the brim on the backs of twelve oxen. The basin held 3,000 baths.

The Temple Palace, 40 cubits long, had walls lined with cedar, on carved with figures of cherubim, palm-trees and open flowers overlaid with gold. Fir-wood overlaid with gold covered the Temple floor. Olive-wood doorposts held doors, also of olive, boasted carved cherubim, palm-trees, and flowers, all overlaid with gold. 

When the workers completed the temple, Enlil killed them all, lest others use them and brag of it.  He broadcast that he’d give these slain craftsmen eternal life in the next world.
Portico housing arc in Solomon's TempleThis structure, the 20-story high Portico, housed the Sanctuary, which in turn housed the “Holy of Holies”–Moses’ arc, a holographic image of the box with Enlil’s communication device and Enlil’s commandments to worship only him, etc..

The Arc's sanctuary room was 20x20 feet square, but ...The Arc’s sanctuary room was 20×20 feet square, but …

The Ark projection measused 2 feet long, but took up no space, for the room would have to be 24 feet long if the arc were of physical material. Hence, the arc and its peptrator, Yahweh, could claim omnipresence and invisibility.

The Ark projection measured 2 feet long, but took up no space, for the room would have to be 24 feet long if the arc were of physical material. Hence, the arc’s projector, Yahweh, could claim he was as invisibile as his arc-projection and unrecognized sound communication devices.

The arc occupied no space at all in the 20 x 20 cubit room, since it was a projection, part of the mythology that Enlil was a god without physical form [Spiesleaks: 12:37].

Thrice annually, Jews from the hinterlands left their homes unattended to offer First Fruits at the Temple.

Marduk’s Egyptian Pharaoh Sheshonk I sacked the Temple a few decades later, but Enlil had warned the Jewish King who hid the Temple’s valuables in a subterranean vault under the Temple before Sheshonk arrived.  


 In 931 BCE, when Solomon, died, Abraham’s descendants split their turf into the kingdoms of Judea in the south and Israel, bordering Phoenicia–land of the great Canaanite traders of the old world–on the north. Until 910 B.C., Jeroboam, Rehoboam, Abijah, Nadab, Baasah, Elah, Zimri, then Omri ruled Israel.
Jezabel maps

In 872 B.C., the leading Phoenician, Ithbaal, King of Tyre, a descendant of Enki and Inanna, sealed an alliance with Israel.

Ithbaal gave his daughter Jezebel to Ahab, the successor to Omri as King of Israel.

Jezebel was therefore a descendant of both the Enkiite clan and Marduk and the Enlilite clan, led by Enlil-Yahweh; she was therefore a natural bridge between these rival factions.

Jezebel was to be Ahab’s principal wife. She believed the alliance between Phoenicia and Israel could “replace separatism, pragmatism replace ideology and trade replace bloodshed. Through Jezebel’s marriage to Ahab, Tyre would develop the Red Sea port of Etzion Geber” and “Tryian ships would ply the coasts of Arabia and East Africa, as far as India for spices and silk. Tyre would pay Israel handsomely in tolls and fees.” [Jezebel: 26 -31]

Jezebel came to a magnificent temple of Astarte/Inanna Ahab build for her in Samaria, north of Jerusalem. She traveled with servants, traders and emissaries of Tyre, 400 priestesses and 450 priests.

When Ahab defeated an Assyrian attack, Elijah, Enlil’s representative in Israel, blamed Jezebel for Ahab’s decision not to sacrifice the captured Assyrian king and his men to Enlil and instead create an alliance with Assyria. Enlil and Elijah wanted Ahab and Jezebel deposed and killed.

Jez denounced by Elijah

Enlil evidently either used a HAARP-type weather device or observed weather patterns and took credit for them to punish the Israelites for their merciful treatment of the Assyrians and Ahab’s failure to prevent worship in Israel of other Nibiran “gods.”

Elijah created a challenge: Enlil’s priests and Jezebel’s would see whose cattle sacrifice Enlil would accept on Mt. Carmel. Enlil, of course, accepted his priests’ bull but rejected the bull of Jezebel’s priests, whom the witnesses then, at Elijah’s insistence, killed.

Jezebel, furious, exiled Elijah; he fled Israel.

But in Israel, Enlil’s priests framed Jezebel as engineering the death of a landowner whose property she coveted. Elijah issued a fatwa–“Dogs shall eat Jezebel.

Enlil took Elijah aloft in his aircraft.  Jewish tradition stated that Elijah would return at the start of a future Passover ritual in Jerusalem–and, as we shall see, this Christians say occurred in private Passover ceremony, a seder, which was Jesus’ Last Supper. [End: 298]

Elisha engineered another Assyrian attack, in which Ahab was killed. Then Elisha suborned Hazel, Ahab’s Chief of Staff.  Enlil had Hazael murder the King of Assyria.  Hazael then made himself ruler of Assyria. He made a deal with the generals of Israel and Judea (Judea was now ruled by the son of Jezebel and Ahab) to murder the rulers of both Israel and Judea.

Hazael made Jehu (a descendant of Zimri who’d assassinated Israel’s king Elah before Ahab’s father Omri killed him) King of Israel and had his men throw Jezebel to her death from her second story to be torn apart by mastiff dogs.

“The morning after Jehu’s triple regicide, Jehu consolidated his power. He ordered every male in any way related to the House of Ahab’s father Omri,” King Joram’s counselors and priests, fleeing attendants of Jezebel trying to get back to Tyre seized and beheaded so blood would be the hands of all surviving authorities.

Tyre and Judea, the latter now ruled by Jezebel’s daughter Athaliah, cut relations with Israel so the Syrians easily subjugated Jehu and Israel, left Israel with only peasants to keep growing food, deported 500,000 soldiers, priests, scribes officials and craftsmen of Israel (the ten tribes of Israel that were “lost”) to other parts of the Assyrian empire and replaced the deported Israelis with settlers from other parts of the empire [Jezebel: 93-197].

In 835 BCE Jehoash, King of Judah, renovated the Temple.  But in 700 BCE Assyrian King Sennacherib stripped it again.  In 586 (547 in some accounts) BCE, Nebuchadnezzer, Marduk’s Babylonian King, sacked Jerusalem and destroyed by the Temple.

Bible writing

The hostages wrote the old testament


In 539 BCE,Cyrus of Persia, whom Marduk welcomed, conquered Babylon and returned Nebuchadnezzar’s hostages to Jerusalem. 


Cyrus built the Second Temple from 538 to 515 BCE. Greeks under Alexander of Macedon, defeated Cyrus’s successor, Xerxes and brought Jerusalem into the Hellenistic world of commerce. Peace prevailed in Jerusalem for centuries.  


Jerusalem became a center of commerce for the Hellenistic world, through which many Jews from Jerusalem traded and settled. Many settled in Alexandria in Egypt.  The Jerusalem expats sent annual taxes back to the Temple in Jerusalem.  This second temple narrowly avoided being destroyed again in 332 BCE when the Jews refused to recognize Alexander as a god.


When Alexander died in 322 BCE, his generals divvied his empire among them. Ptolemy I, who had his headquarters in Egypt, seized Alexander’s African turf and Judea and Jerusalem.

Seleucus and his successors took Syria, Anatolia, Mesopotamia and Alexander’s Asian lands.  The Seleucids hired Marduk’s former priest, Berossus “to compile the history of Mankind and its gods according to Mesopotamian knowledge.  Berossus researched at a library of cuneiform tablets near Harran [Turkey].”  From his books the Western world learned of the Anunnaki, their coming to Earth, the prediluvian era,” the creation of Adapa, the Deluge and after. 


Ptolemies successors “continued his tolerant attitude toward others’ religions, arranged for the translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek (a translation known as the Septuagint) and allowed the Jews complete religious freedom in Judea as well as in their growing communities in Egypt.” 

But the Seleucid kings, studying Berossus’ translation into Greek of the ancient writings of dictated to the Sumerians by the Anunnaki, learned that Enki ordered Ziasudra-Noah to hide “every writing in Sippar, the city of Anunnaki Commander Enlil’s grandson Shamah for post deluvial recovery because those writings were about beginnings, middles and ends.”  Berossus had written that “the world undergoes periodic cataclysms related to the zodiacal Ages” and one change would occur in 122 BCE.  Seleucid King Antiochus III, ruler of Syria, in 198 BCE, took Jerusalem from the Ptolemies to get “the space-related site in Jerusalem for the Return” of the Anunnaki gods.


“Unlike the Ptolemies, Seleucid rulers imposed Hellenic culture and religion in their domains.” They stationed troops in Jerusalem and limited the power of the Jewish priests at the Temple.  The Seleucids raised taxes to train wrestlers instead of studying the Torah, raised shrines to Greek gods and stationed soldiers to make sure Jews worshipped the Greek gods, not Enlil-Yahweh. Antiochus III prompted a short-lived rebellion in 187 BCE when he introduced statues of Marduk-Zeus and the Greek pantheon into the temple.  But in 168 BCE, Antiochus IV Epiphanes again pushed the Greek gods for the Temple.  In 167 BCE he forcefully entered the Temple’s inner sanctum and confiscated the golden ritual objects there. He put a Greek governor in charge of Jerusalem.  

Next to the Temple, Antiochus built a fortress for a permanent garrison of his soldiers. “The Jews again rebelled Antiochus again crushed them. Antiochus forbade circumscision which marked Jews as followers of Enlil.  Antiochus banned the Jewish Sabbath, put a statue of Zeus in their temple and had Greek priests sacrifice pigs there. When a Greek ordered Jewish priest Mattathius Maccabeus perform a Hellenic sacrifice, Mattathius killed him. [End: 286-288]

Antiochus sent armies against the Jews. When Mattathius died, his son Judah Maccabeus carried on the war. The Jewish rebels, like the Seleucids, fought furiously to recapture the Temple before the date Enki recorded for the return of Nibiru and the Anunnaki Royals.

In 164 BCE the Macecabees captured the Temple Mount, “cleansed the temple and rekindled the sacred flame. They won complete control of Jerusalem and restored Jewish independence in 160 BCE. when they drove the Seleucids from Judea.  Mattathius youngest son Simon rededicated the temple in 165 BCE. Jews celebrate this as the festival of Hanukkah (rededication).

An Anunnaki emissary communicating to the Hebrew prophet Daniel, ordered the Jews to begin the countdown for Nibiru’s return from 160 BCE. the Hebrew year 3600 BCE when the Enlil would return and again communicate with his people in the cleansed temple and certain other enigimatically conveyed events had occurred.  Enlil’s return which the Jews expected for 160 BCE did not occur, and would not, Daniel was told, occur until nations, symbolized as a ram’s, goat’s and lions offspring “split apart and fight each other.

Simon’s dynasty, the Hasoneans, brought 80 years of independence in Judea, which they now called Israel.  But within Israel deep divides developed between the literal Pharisees who expected Enlil to appear physically, the Sadducees who expected merely his spiritual presence, and the Essenes, “who secluded themselves at Qumram. Prophesies–Book of Jubilees, Book of Enoch, Apocrypha and others circulated and proclaimed that the turmoil known as the End of Days would begin a new era, “the coming of the Anointed One” (Mashi’ach, Cristos, Messiah, Christ). [End: 289-294]

The Hasmoneans claimed not only the throne of Israel, but also the post of High Priest.  Hasmonean kings forcibly converted Moabites, Edomites, Itureans and Ammonites to Judaism.

In 67 BCE, when Queen Salome Alexendra died, her son, High Prieset Hyrcanus claimed the kingship of Israel.  But in 65 BCE Hyrcanus’s brother Aristobulus led an army against him at Jerico, captured Hyrcanus and forced him to abdicate.  Six weeks later, however, Hyrcanus’ man, Antipater (an Idumean forced-convert who would become the father of Herod) raised an army of mercenaries and Idumeans that beat Aristobulus’.  Aristobulus’ army retreated to the Temple, leaving the rest of Jerusalem and Israel under Hyrcanus’ rule.

Aristobulus’ army held the fortress on the Temple mound but let Hyrcanus send sheep daily to the Temple for sacrifice. After months of unsuccessful siege, Hycanus sent a pig instead of a sheep for sacrifice.  


In 70 BCE, Roman general Pompey, seeking control of the Hasmonean empire as key to running the Eastern Mediterranean, received delegations from Hyrcanus, Aristobulus and the rabbis (Sanhedrin), all welcoming Roman intervention in the stalemated siege and begging Pompey to intervene in their favor.  In 63 BCE, when Pompey got to Jerusalem, Hyrcanus’army withdrew and Aristobulus surrendered but his army continued to hold the Temple against Pompey.  After two months. Pompey took the Temple and killed 12,000 of Jews within. Pompey entered (and desecrated) the Holy of Holies sanctuary where priests kept worshipping even as the Romans burst in.  Pompey expected to see in the sanctuary a statue of the Jewish god, but, of course, saw no statue and left the Temple intact.  In 67 BCE, the Roman governor of Judea invaded the temple, seeking treasure.  The Jews, however, overwhelmed the Roman garrison in Jerusalem and forced it to retreat from the city.  

Yohanan ben Zakkai and the peace faction of Jerusalem urged acceptance of inevitable Roman rule.  Practice, said Yohanan,  mercy and loving acts to people instead of fighting for independence.  The independence faction–zealots–fought the peace faction to force them to join the revolt against Rome.  Yohanan’s faction saw Roman political control as inevitable and wanted to negotiate religious freedom within Roman rule.

Zealots and Peaceniks fought in the city; zealots assassinated people like Yohanan who advocated peace and accommodation.

The Zealots won the house-to-house and neighborhood-to-neighborhood civil war.  They burned the city and the records-of debt-documents. 

Romans and Syrians in nearby Caesarea killed the thousands of Jews among them.  Jews throughout Judea retaliated, killing the Romans and Syrians among them.  

To prevent independence movements from spreading to other provinces, Rome sent General Vespasian and 60,000 soldiers to Jerusalem.  They killed all Jews in their path from Syria, then surrounded Jerusalem, trapping 100,000 Jews within its layers of mighty walls.  

The Romans offered the trapped Jews a chance to surrender, but six Zealot armies controlled different neighborhoods, fought each other for control of the city, burned each others’ food supplies, forbade surrender and stopped the starving Jews trapped within from fleeing the city.  Seeking swallowed gold and gems, the Romans who surrounded the city cut open the guts of the few that escaped the Zealots within. The Romans tortured then crucified other Jewish captives and displayed them in a ring around the city. Yohanan, however, escaped Jerusalem disguised as a corpse in a bier of rotting meat.

After four months, the Romans took Jerusalem city, burned the Temple and cut the throats of all whom they didn’t take as slaves.

In 54 BCE, the Roman Crassus looted the Temple treasury Jews revolted again but Romans subdued them again in 43 BCE.  The Romans ruled Judea from Syria then appointed a local Governor for Judea.  The Roman governor let the Jews select a High Priest for the Temple and a King for the Jews. In 36 BCE they choose Herod, a descendant of the forced Edomite converts to Judaism who did as Rome told him.  Herod ruled for Rome until 4 BCE.

Jerusalem no longer had a Jewish King and was a mere province administrated by a Roman Procurator Pontius Pilate, who arrived in 26 CE with orders to quell Jewish riots against Roman rule.  Pilate brought Roman troops, coins with images of the Temple–seen by the Jews as blasfemous images–to use in the temple.


Jesus of Nazareth (a descendant of King David) raised in Egypt, came with his parents in 21 BCE to the Temple in Jerusalem for the Passover feast.  There, he studied the projected return of the Anunnaki to be heralded by the Messiah.  He returned in 33 BCE with followers to a Jerusalem in the iron Grip of Pilate and the Romans.

Jesus and his followers belived him to be the Messiah and to be Elija returned as well.  At this seder, Jesus drank from the cup at the empty place that seder ritual reserved for Elija’s return. “Jesus took the cup, had thanks, gave it to the disciples and they all drank of it.” [Mark 14:23] There was a cup, Elija’s; Jesus drank from it. DaVinci left it out of his painting.

Da Vinci omitted the cup in his famous painting.  He painted the missing “Cup of Elija” to confirm Jesus’ bloodline. Da Vinci followed New Testament assertion that the cup had been removed by the visiting Elija.  DaVinci’s painting showed the disciple on Jesus’ right bending sideways to let Elija come through the open window and take the cup.  DaVinci’s reinforced the Jewish expectation that Elija would return first, then Jesus, as a distinct second event, Jesus would have come as “the Anointed King of the House of David” had arrived.
last-supper-names“The cup became a chalice representing Royal Blood, the Holy Grail. The Roman governor arrested Jesus and had him executed as confirming himself as the Jews’ King by his actions at the seder. [End: 298 -305].

Herod the Great renovated the Temple in 20BCE; When Romans occupied Judea, they let Jewish priests run the Temple.  Then in 70 CE, Romans destroyed the Temple.

During the last revolt of the Jews against the Romans in 132–135 CE, Simon bar Kokhba and Rabbi Akiva led another failed revolt from 132 to 135 and the Romans banned Jews from Jerusalem.

Herod’s Temple Palace, 40 cubits long, featured walls lined with cedar with carved cherubim, palm-trees and open flowers overlaid with gold. Fir-wood overlaid with gold covered the Temple floor. Olive-wood doorposts held doors, also of olive. 

The Temple complex featured a large basin (called the “Brazen Sea” measured 10 cubits wide brim to brim, 5 cubits deep and with a circumference of 30 cubits around the brim, rested on the backs of twelve oxen It held 3,000 baths for the purification by immersion of the body of the priests.

* “Most modern Jews,” Swerdlow writes, “have absolutely no genetic link to the Middle East. There are many physical types of Jews covering many racial characteristics.  They are not an homogeneous group, but a religious group that covers many cultures. The vast majority of European/American Jews trace their genetic lineage to the KHAZARS who all converted to Judaism in the 800s to circumvent Catholic rule. The University of Pavia Italy did a genetic study of  European men that found 80% of them had a direct lineage to central Asia and the other 20% to the Middle East.” [Blue Blood: 37]
