Unveiling the Reality Behind Mythological Deities: A Revelation of Ancient Truths




Across diverse cultures, tales of gods, monsters, and heroes have woven intricate narratives, collectively known as mythology. Often dismissed as mere folklore, these stories offer glimpses into realms beyond our comprehension. What if, however, these myths were not solely products of imagination? While I do not assert the existence of other gods as traditionally conceived, in this article, I propose an intriguing possibility: that the ancient gods of mythology are in reality the fallen angels as depicted in the ancient text of 1 Enoch.


The Fallen Ones

“It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them, elegant and beautiful. And when the angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamoured of them, saying to each other, Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men, and let us beget children. Then their leader Samyaza said to them; I fear that you may perhaps be indisposed to the performance of this enterprise; And that I alone shall suffer for so grievous a crime. But they answered him and said; We all swear; And bind ourselves by mutual execrations, that we will not change our intention, but execute our projected undertaking. Then they swore all together, and all bound themselves by mutual execrations. Their whole number was two hundred, who descended upon Ardis, which is the top of Mount Armon. That mountain, therefore, was called Armon, because they had sworn upon it, and bound themselves by mutual execrations.” (1 Enoch 7:1-8)

Angels, being immortal and not requiring procreation for the perpetuation of their kind, do not need wives. This notion is even referenced by our Messiah.

“In the resurrection then, when they rise, whose wife shall she be? For seven had her as wife. And יהושע answering, said to them, “Is this not why you go astray, because you do not know the Scriptures nor the power of Elohim? “For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as messengers in the heavens.” (Mark 12:23-25)

Notice also how Yeshua remarks that they do not comprehend the scriptures, yet the sole mention of angels in relation to marriage or sexual matters is found exclusively in the book of 1 Enoch. This serves as further indication of 1 Enoch's scriptural significance. Returning to the angels who abandoned their celestial abodes for mortal women, we observe a striking parallel with the deities of mythology. These entities seek to intermingle with humanity, driven often by base desires such as lust. This mirrors the account of the angels who prioritized progeny and physical relationships above all else.


The True Names of the Gods of Mythology

“These are the names of their chiefs: Samyaza, who was their leader, Urakabarameel, Akibeel, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Azkeel, Saraknyal, Asael, Armers, Batraal, Anane, Zavebe, Samsaveel, Ertael, Turel, Yomyael, Arazyal. These were the prefects of the two hundred angels, and the remainder were all with them.” (1 Enoch 7:7-9)

After the dispersion of people from the Tower of Babel, each culture inevitably modified the names and attributes of the fallen angels who once held sway over their ancestors. Hence, every mythology features a deity associated with the sun or craftsmanship. These figures represent the same entities, albeit reshaped by linguistic confusion and the passage of time. As we shall explore, the dominion of the Fallen Ones came to an end with the Great Flood. Nonetheless, the memory of these formidable beings endured beyond the deluge, with their lineage persisting through lesser giants even after the cataclysmic event.

“But the angels transgressed this appointment, and were captivated by love of women, and begat children, who are those that are called demons, and besides, they afterwards subdued the human race to themselves, partly by magical writings, and partly by fears and the punishments they occasioned, and partly by teaching them to offer sacrifices, and incense and libations, of which things they stood in need after they were enslaved by lustful passions; and among men they sowed murders, wars, adulteries, intemperate deeds, and all wickedness. Whence also the poets and mythologists, not knowing that it was the angels and those demons who had been begotten by them that did these things to men, and women, and cities, and nations, which they related, ascribed them to God Himself [i.e. Jupiter), and to those who were accounted to be His very offspring, and to the offspring of those who were called His brothers, Neptune and Pluto, and to the children again of these their offspring. For whatever name each of the angels had given to himself and his children, by that name they called them.” (Writings of Justin Martyr and Athenagoras. Transl. Clark's AnteNic. Lib. Vol. ii., PP- 75, 76)

Knowledge

“Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees.” (1 Enoch 7:10)
“Moreover, Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and of all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered. Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways. Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and dividers of roots: Armers taught the solution of sorcery; Barkayal taught the observers of the stars; Akibeel taught signs; Tamiel taught astronomy; And Asaradel taught the motion of the moon.” (1 Enoch 8:1-8)

The fallen angels imparted knowledge to our ancestors, much like the gods of mythology did with humans. It represents a parallel event, reshaped and recounted to suit the cultural context of the dispersed populations following the collapse of Babel.


Giants, the Offspring of Angels

“And the women conceiving brought forth giants…” (1 Enoch 7:11)

This verse is collaborated with Genesis and Flavius Josephus, a Jewish historian from the first century.

“And it came to be, when men began to increase on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of Elohim saw the daughters of men, that they were good. And they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. And יהוה said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever in his going astray. He is flesh, and his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, the men of name.” (Genesis 6:1-4)
“For many Angels of God accompanied with women, and begat sons that proved unjust, and despisers of all that was good; on account of the confidence, they had in their own strength. For the tradition is, that these men did what resembled the acts of those whom the Grecians call Giants.” (Flavius Josephus Chapter 3 Section 1.)

The union of angels and humans results in the creation of giants, a race characterized not only by physical stature but also by a formidable presence in the spiritual realm—an inheritance from their celestial progenitors. I will explore this phenomenon further in my upcoming article, but the key takeaway here is that giants emerged from such unions. This parallels the concept of demigods and giants, offspring of unions between gods and mortals in mythology. Likewise, the giants who once roamed the earth were depicted as equally—if not more—malicious than their mythical counterparts.

“…These devoured all the labor of men; until it became impossible to feed them; When they turned themselves against men, in order to devour them.” (1 Enoch 7:12-13)    
“And men, being destroyed, cried out; and their voice reached to heaven.” (1 Enoch 8:9)

It was a harrowing era to inhabit. Fallen angels wielded dominion with little regard for humanity, permitting their offspring, the giants, to prey upon the vulnerable without restraint. They provided no shelter, no guidance, and showed no inclination to intervene. Driven by their aspirations to ascend to godhood, these fallen beings reveled in their creative pursuits, basking in self-appointed divinity for a fleeting moment in time.


An Apocalyptic War

Mythologies often recount tales of an ancient conflict that shook the very fabric of creation. While the identities of the opposing factions may vary, the epic scale of the battle endures. In reality, this war did occur, but it wasn't a clash between gods or giants; rather, it was a conflict between righteous angels and their fallen counterparts, alongside their giant offspring.

“Say to him in my name; hide yourself! And reveal to him the end, which is coming, because the whole earth will be destroyed. A deluge is about to come on all the earth; and all that is in it will be destroyed.  And now teach him so that he may escape and his offspring may survive for the whole Earth.” And further Yah said to Raphael: “Bind Azazel by his hands and his feet and throw him into the darkness. And split open the desert, which is in Dudael, and throw him there. And throw on him jagged and sharp stones and cover him with darkness. And let him stay there forever. And cover his face so that he may not see the light. And so that, on the Great Day of Judgment, he may be hurled into the fire. And restore the Earth which the Angels have ruined. And announce the restoration of the Earth. For I shall restore the Earth so that not all the sons of men shall be destroyed because of the knowledge which the Watchers made known and taught to their sons. And the whole Earth has been ruined by the teaching of the works of Azazel; and against him write: ALL SIN.” And Yah said to Gabriel: “Proceed against the bastards, and the reprobates, and against the sons of the fornicators. And destroy the sons of the fornicators, and the sons of the Watchers, from amongst men. And send them out, and send them against one another, and let them destroy themselves in battle; for they will not have length of days…. And the Yah said to Michael: “Go, inform Semyaza, and the others with him, who have associated with the women to corrupt themselves with them in all their uncleanness. When all their sons kill each other, and when they see the destruction of their loved ones, bind them for seventy generations, under the hills of the earth, until the day of their judgment and of their consummation, until the judgment, which is for all eternity, is accomplished. And in those days, they will lead them to the Abyss of Fire; in torment, and in prison they will be shut up for all eternity.” (1 Enoch 10:2-13)

Prior to the deluge, a formidable conflict unfolded, one that water alone could not quell. Recognizing the gravity of the situation, El Shaddai dispatched his archangels—Raphael, Gabriel, and Michael—to combat the giants and bind the fallen ones in chains of darkness, awaiting the day of judgment. This act of imprisonment is also referenced in the book of Jude.

“And the messengers who did not keep their own principality, but left their own dwelling, He has kept in everlasting shackles under darkness for the judgment of the great day.” (Jude 1:6)

Conclusion

“At the same time, it is very evident that, in many of the legends, not only of the Greek, but of the Hindu and other mythologies, the Gentile nations have embodied their remembrances of events, the true record of which is found in the Mosaic Scriptures.” (Rev. John Fleming, A.B., The Fallen Angels and the Heroes of Mythology, pg.9)

The tales passed down through ancient mythologies are often dismissed as mere products of primitive imagination, a narrative subtly propagated to undermine the ingenuity of our forebears. Yet, a closer examination reveals a reality far removed from such patronizing assumptions. Our ancestors were not mere simpletons cowering at thunder; their accomplishments, evident in the monumental structures they erected and the extensive voyages they undertook without modern aids like GPS, attest to their sophistication. They inhabited a world beyond our comprehension—one ruled by fallen angels and where giants roamed, consuming the flesh of men. Let us offer praise to the Almighty, Yah, for sending his celestial host to liberate humanity from such oppression.
