Many of the cults were dedicated to the worship of Saturn, as the House of Judah i. Saturday is named after the star god Saturn. As it follows, Saturday is not only the seventh day of creation.
According to the ancients, planets were called wandering stars. And yet, there are many parallels with Yahweh and Saturn as well. The worship of the sun, moon, and stars, was the most ancient, most general, and most plausible idolatry.
They made to themselves the star of their God, some particular star which they took to be their god, or the name of which they gave to their god. This idolatry Deut. The prophet Ezekiel in the Babylonian exile had a vision—the likeness of a man, but made of fire and amber who brought him to some darkened chamber where the ancients of the house of Israel with censers in their hands were worshipping idols portrayed upon the wall round about.
I think the earliest strands of Judaism were polytheistic, and the religion became more and more monotheistic as time progressed. The scholastic evidence suggests that the Pentateuch developed out of two separate Israelite groups: Yahwist and Elohist. They base that theory on the vocabulary used in the Pentateuch: certain portions refer to the Israelite deity as Yahweh, others Elohim.
The two were eventually merged into one god, but there is evidence to suggest that Elohim represented an entire pantheon of Canaanite deities, and Yahweh was one of those gods. In that case, Judaism developed as a cult that began to worship Yahweh exclusively and gradually usurped competing regional cults. Baal was merely one of these Elohim, which also represented Saturn.
The bull was also symbolic of El and his son Baal Hadad and both wore bull horns on their headdress. In other words, the horned god archetype is deeply connected to Saturn and the cosmocrators. In a way, Ialdabaoth is a mixture of Baal, Kronos, and Yahweh. El is simply another name for Saturn. Kronos then, whom the Phoenicians call Elus, who was king of the country and subsequently, after his decease, was deified as the star Saturn….
That was the way Christianity could be entirely independent from competing religions while also coexisting with them, i. In other words, they are demons. The Shaddim is related to El Shaddai. Judaic indeed all ancient near eastern beliefs are a jumble of different ideas with some of them being discarded as time goes on and others mutating and merging with other ideas.
If El was a sky god, then how could he be thought of as an earth god? There has always been an uneasy tension between the idea of the celestial gods stars living in the sky and guiding human existence and the idea of the gods living on a solid surface such as a mountain, the Axis Mundi.
Thus, El was the sky god that ruled the heavens but he also ruled from the world mountain. This made him both a sky god and an earth god. He was the older, deeper god whom one appeased in the background to appeasing the reigning sky god, YHWH also known to the Greeks and Romans as i.
In the case of El Shaddai, I suspect that the title referred to El on the Throne of God without any particular chthonic implications but that the constant associations with the Shaddim kept the title from being more popular in later days. Eden was blocked off from Adam and Eve because of their transgression of Divine Law. This sacred mountain, upon whose summit stood the temple of the gods, gave rise to the stories of Olympus, Meru, and Asgard.
The City of the Golden gates—the capital of Atlantis—is the one now preserved among the numerous religions as the City of the Gods, the Holy City, and even the New Jerusalem of Revelation, with its streets paved with gold and its twelve gates shining with precious stones.
