The Three “Wise Men” Truth vs. Myth
It is recorded in the Book of Matthew that, at the birth of Messiah, “Three Wise Men” brought the infant Jesus gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.
And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh. Mat. 2:11.
It is speculated that these “Wise Men” were astrologers who studied the stars, and seeing the Star of Jesus in the heavens traveled to Bethlehem to bring him gifts and worship the king. Never explained is why a “Star in the Heavens” would motivate anyone to decide to pack-up Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh, leave their country, and follow a star to a distant land to bring gifts to an infant king in a stable in Bethlehem.
The presentation of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh to the Messiah is the fulfillment of a prophecy made to our ancestors shortly after they were exiled in death on the earth. It is recorded in the Books of Adam and Eve that Adam asked God to give him a token from the Garden of Eden to comfort him in death. God granted this request, and sent his Angels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael to take Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh from the Garden to give to Adam. When these gifts were presented to our ancestors, God informed them that they would be returned to God when He came to the earth to save them from the death sentence imposed on them by their transgression. See the Books of Adam and Eve, Chapter Twenty Nine & Thirty.
The Books of Adam and Eve, reveal that the “Three Wise Men” were the Angels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, in human form as kings, who literally returned those gifts to the Messiah at his birth in Bethlehem. Not copies, or similar gifts. The very same gifts that were presented to Adam and Eve, were presented to the Messiah at his birth in Bethlehem. The Books of Adam and Eve were not included in the theological cannons of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religions. If you take the time to read them, I think you will begin to see why those who formed our modern “biblical” religions have kept us ignorant of these liberating truths.
Messiah said: “And you shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Joh. 8:32.
Think and Go Free. it is not possible to construct a dogma-based religion on the Liberating Truth revealed in the biblical and secular history of ancient Israel. The Bible is not a handbook for religion, an ongoing revelation, nor is it a “myth/fable” as disparaged in the ideological cults of Academia; Theology, and Atheistic/ideological Science. It is a closed history! What you are about to read is part of that history.
The Books of Adam and Eve
The incidents revealed in these texts occurred after Adam and Eve left the Garden Paradise and were dwelling in a cave. It is recorded in these books that on several occasions Satan tried to kill our ancestors; consequently, on every occasion, God intervened and saved them from total death. I recommend that you read the complete works at: The Forgotten Books of Eden.
Books of Adam and Eve CHAP. XXIX
God tells Adam of the Devil’s purpose
BUT when the merciful God saw that Satan wished to kill Adam with his manifold devices, and saw that Adam was meek and without guile, God spake unto Satan in a loud voice, and cursed him.
2 Then he and his hosts fled, and Adam and Eve remained standing on the top of the mountain, whence they saw below them the wide world, high above which they were. But they saw none of the host which anon were by them.
3 They wept, both Adam and Eve, before God, and begged for forgiveness of Him.
4 Then came the Word from God to Adam, and said unto him, “Know thou and understand concerning this Satan, that he seeks to deceive thee and thy seed after thee.”
5 And Adam wept before the Lord God, and begged and entreated Him to give him something from the garden, as a token to him, wherein to be comforted.
6 And God looked upon Adam’s thought, and sent the angel Michael as far as the sea that reaches unto India, to take from thence golden rods and bring them to Adam.
7 This did God in His wisdom, in order that these golden rods, being with Adam in the cave, should shine forth with light in the night around him, and put an end to his fear of the darkness.
8 Then the angel Michael went down by God’s order, took golden rods, as God had commanded him, and brought them to God. 1A&E 29:1-8.
Books of Adam and Eve CHAP. XXX
Adam receives the first worldly goods
AFTER these things, God commanded the angel Gabriel to go down to the garden, and say to the cherub who kept it, “Behold, God has commanded me to come into the garden, and to take thence sweet-smelling incense, and give it to Adam.”
2 Then the angel Gabriel went down by God’s order to the garden, and told the cherub as God had commanded him.
3 The cherub then said, “Well.” And Gabriel went in and took the incense.
4 Then God commanded His angel Raphael to go down to the garden, and speak to the cherub about some myrrh, to give to Adam.
5 And the angel Raphael went down and told the cherub as God had commanded him, and the cherub said, “Well.” Then Raphael went in and took the myrrh.
6 The golden rods were from the Indian sea, where there are precious stones. The incense was from the eastern border of the garden; and the myrrh from the western border, whence bitterness came upon Adam.
7 And the angels brought these three things to God, by the Tree of Life, in the garden.
8 Then God said to the angels, “Dip them in the spring of water; then take them and sprinkle their water over Adam and Eve, that they be a little comforted in their sorrow, and give them to Adam and Eve.
9 And the angels did as God had commanded them, and they gave all those things to Adam and Eve on the top of the mountain upon which Satan had placed them, when he sought to make an end of them.
10 And when Adam saw the golden rods, the incense and the myrrh, he was rejoiced and wept because he thought that the gold was a token of the kingdom whence he had come, that the incense was a token of the bright light which had been taken from him, and that the myrrh was a token of the sorrow in which he was. 1A&E 30:1-10.
Books of Adam and Eve CHAP. XXXI
They make themselves more comfortable in the Cave of Treasures on the third day
AFTER these things God said unto Adam, “Thou didst ask of Me something from the garden, to be comforted therewith, and I have given thee these three tokens as a consolation to thee; that thou trust in Me and in My covenant with thee.
2 “For I will come and save thee; and kings shall bring me when in the flesh, gold, incense and myrrh; gold as a token of My kingdom; incense as a token of My divinity; and myrrh as a token of My suffering and of My death.
3 “But, O Adam, put these by thee in the cave; the gold that it may shed light over thee by night; the incense, that thou smell its sweet savour; and the myrrh, to comfort thee in thy sorrow.”
4 When Adam heard these words from God, he worshipped before Him. He and Eve worshipped Him and gave Him thanks, because He had dealt mercifully with them.
5 Then God commanded the three angels, Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, each to bring what he had brought, and give it to Adam. And they did so, one by one.
6 And God commanded Suriyel and Salathiel to bear up Adam and Eve, and bring them down from the top of the high mountain, and to take them to the Cave of Treasures.
7 There they laid the gold on the south side of the cave, the incense on the eastern side, and the myrrh on the western side. For the mouth of the cave was on the north side.
8 The angels then comforted Adam and Eve, and departed.
9 The gold was seventy rods; the incense, twelve pounds; and the myrrh, three pounds.
10 These remained by Adam in the House of Treasures; therefore was it called “of concealment.” But other interpreters say it was called the “Cave of Treasures,” by reason of the bodies of righteous men that were in it.
11 These three things did God give to Adam, on the third day after he had come out of the garden, in token of the three days the Lord should remain in the heart of the earth.
12 And these three things, as they continued with Adam in the cave, gave him light by night; and by day they gave him a little relief from his sorrow. 1A&E 31:1-12.
Here we see the great love God has for our ancestors. Adam and Eve were created to replace Lucifer, the fallen angel who was second in power only to God Himself. Now known as Satan, he makes several attempts to kill Adam and Eve to prevent them, and their descendants, from being given his position in heaven. All of his attacks are thwarted by God, who continually saves them from his wrath. God tells Adam that in His final effort to save him, kings will bring these gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh to him at His Incarnate Presence on the earth.
“For I will come and save thee; and kings shall bring me when in the flesh, gold, incense and myrrh; gold as a token of My kingdom; incense as a token of My divinity; and myrrh as a token of My suffering and of My death. 1A&E 31:2.
These were Sacred Gifts that would be returned to God at His coming to the earth in human form to save humanity from the death sentence imposed on them by Satan’s deception in Eden. They could only be handled by very powerful beings. It is my conclusion that the Three Wise Men were the Angels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, in human form as the kings who brought the gifts to the Messiah at his birth in Bethlehem.
Adam reiterates this prophecy to his children at the time of his death.
Then, after a long time, the city in which the gold, the incense, and the myrrh are found with my body, shall be plundered. But when it is spoiled, the gold the incense, and the myrrh shall be taken care of with the spoil that is kept; and naught of them shall perish, until the Word of God, made man shall come; when kings shall take them, and shall offer to Him, gold in token of His being King; incense, in token of His being God of heaven and earth; and myrrh, in token of His passion. 2A&E 8:18
The prophecies concerning the Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh, is repeated many times in the Books of Adam and Eve. You can read them for yourself at the website: The Forgotten Books of Eden.
In the first book of Adam and Eve, see chapters:
XXIX God tells Adam of the Devil’s purpose.
XXX Adam receives the first worldly goods.
LXXIII The betrothal of Adam and Eve.
In the Second Book of Adam and Eve, see chapters:
VIII Adam’s remarkable last words. He predicts the Flood. He exhorts his offspring to good. He reveals certain mysteries of life.
XXI Jared dies in sorrow for his sons who had gone astray. A prediction of the Flood.
The Books of Adam and Eve reveal that our ancestors were created to replace the fallen Angel Lucifer and his minions of angels, who were second in power only to God Himself. With the death and resurrection of Messiah, all the descendants of Adam will be restored to life in Eden.
For since by man came death, by man came also resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah shall all be made alive. 1 Cor. 15:21-22, see also Rom. 5:12-21.
At that point, each in their own order will return to Paradise. There they will become subject to the Kingdom (government) of God, chosen from ancient Israel. Those who pass that, one thousand-year, Day of Judgement will replace Lucifer and his angels as the beings who will rule the universe with God for eternity.
As the descendants of Adam and Eve pass from the Adamic Death into life, each will be judged for one day Those who pass that test will be given access to the Tree of Life and receive Eternal Life. Those who fail will receive the Second Death. To God, One Day is equal to one thousand human years.
Humans are God’s ultimate Creation. He so loves them that he was willing to come to the earth in human form, and even suffer the pains of death to rescue them from the dominion of Satan. At his Second Coming in power, He destroyed the evil forces who ruled the ancient world, and humans inherited their place as the preeminent beings of the modern world. This occurred in the Battle of Armageddon. It coincided with the destruction of the temple and fall of Jerusalem in a.d.70, indicating that God had completed all he intended to do on the earth.
At the fall of Jerusalem, the Jewish historian Josephus and the Roman historian Tacitus, recorded eyewitness accounts of a great battle of supernatural forces in the heavens above the city.
Historical evidence that they did indeed witness the second coming of Jesus is provided in the account of the fall of Jerusalem by the Roman historian Tacitus.
Prodigies had occurred, which this nation, prone to superstition, but hating all religious rites, did not deem it lawful to expiate by offering and sacrifice. There had been seen hosts joining battle in the skies, the fiery gleam of arms, the temple illuminated by a sudden radiance from the clouds. The doors of the inner shrine were suddenly thrown open, and a voice of more than mortal tone was heard to cry that the Gods were departing. At the same instant there was a mighty stir as of departure. See 2 Ki. 2:11, 6:17.
The Jewish Historian Josephus provides an equally graphic account of these events. These are some excerpts from his writings:
…. They (the Jews) neither heeded nor believed in the manifest portents that foretold the coming desolation, but as if thunderstruck and bereft of eyes and mind, disregarded the plain warnings of God. So it was when a star, resembling a sword, stood over the city, and a comet which continued for a year. (See Mat. 24:30)
…. Again, not many days after the festival, on the twenty-first of the month Artemisium, there appeared a miraculous phenomenon, passing belief. Indeed, what I am about to relate would, I imagine, have been deemed a fable, were it not for the narratives of eyewitnesses and for the subsequent calamities which deserved to be so signalized. For before sunset throughout all parts of the country chariots were seen in the air and armed battalions hurtling through the clouds and encompassing the cities.” (The Jewish War VI) See 2 Ki. 2:11, 6:17.
Notice that both of these historians report that chariots and men were seen in the sky above Jerusalem. This is a precise fulfillment of the prophecy that the people of that generation would see Jesus in the clouds.
One can only speculate as to why our modern-day “biblical” religions have banned these liberating portions of history from their research. However, you can’t make money off, or control, a liberated populace. Science and religion are among the wealthiest organizations on the planet. Clearly the liberating truth revealed in these books, would give us inner and universal peace as to our Origin, Purpose, and Future, and free us from the endless conflict between science and religion.
Scientists and Theologians
The leaders of science and religion are not evil, they are ignorant. These ideological beliefs were formulated in the profound ignorance of the dark ages of the early modern world. Like the rest of us, they have been indoctrinated with these myths as children. Notwithstanding, an ignorant man is a dangerous man. We cannot make sound personal, societal, governmental, or political policy based on the flawed and contradictory “beliefs” of ideological science and religion. It is time to solve the “Mystery” of God and Human Existence. It’s NOT a mystery.

Religion is a modern pretense to an ancient reality, and atheistic “science” is a reactionary ideological cult. See the link Religion; Truth vs. Myth @ www.realists.com.

A Final Note: Humans are God’s ultimate Creation. History reveals that we are destined to replace Lucifer and his fallen angels as the most powerful beings in eternity.
