The Prehistory of Mankind

    How did your early ancestors live?

    Understanding the origins of human life and the tasks and problems is one of the important issues for every one of us. It means to appreciate the environment and conditions we experience now.

    The current theories of science have imposed on us all, starting from school, that nature has developed out of pure chance and humans are a result of evolving apes. These assumptions are wrong. Scientists have created ways of thought which will lead into dead end roads for they are excluding the notion of a higher spiritual being behind our existence. The fact is God has created every form of living existence and man is the crown of God's creation, a reflection of God's image because God is the un-created eternal primary man.

    Everything went without problems for uncounted eons and Lucifer grew in wisdom and power. So much that he developed the idea to dethrone God and become himself the top ruler. He plotted to overthrow the Lord and a fifth of all created spirits joined him in this venture.

    Love is the basis of God and thus the spirit world. This revolution was carried by the contrary of love and thus Lucifer froze and fell together with his followers creating in this way matter, the physical world and universe. God's reaction, however, was not annihilation or destruction of the revolutionaries. Instead He banned Lucifer turned Satan and his followers into matter, their prison with the aim to make them repent and return to Him after a long voyage. Thus all fallen souls banned into matter had and have to pass through the different kingdoms, mineral, plant, animal and finally arrive at the human level.

    During an immense length of development matter was organized into universes, countless galaxies and solar systems, an ongoing process in space even today. When the earth had ripened long enough God provided a human soul with a body of flesh creating the first human being. He then took the self love of the human (in the bible called the rib of Adam) and created a partner for him using this self love. This way the first human pair was in existence that was able to procreate.

    In the New Revelation these descendents are called Adamites. God planted into the souls of the Adamites a spark of His spirit enabling them to become God-like and be the crown of creation.

    So the story of Adam and Eve and their descendents is no fairy tale. We are one family of humans with the first Homo sapiens as primary parents. The same is true for the great flood which was caused by the greed and warmongering of the first highly developed civilisation as well as the story of Noah.

    But the New Revelation confirms that before the creation of intelligent man so-called Pre-Adamites existed for millions of years. They were however closer to animals and did not have the ability to progress socially or technically being dominated by instinct.

    Let's look at excerpts covering this subject.

The pre-Noah Earth

    [Household of God HHG.03_366, 01] "So that you can more easily understand its form and nature, it is necessary to imagine the mountain ranges of Asia, as well as those of Europe and Africa. As far as many of them are concerned, there is now not a trace left. At some time they were washed away and ruptured by the withdrawal of the ocean. Their old connecting spines now lie under the river debris in valleys. Here and there, the existing rivers and larger rivers must force themselves through mountain bottlenecks. As far as the high mountain regions are concerned, their form - except very few - has changed so much through the effect of weathering that a person who lived a thousand years ago would not recognize these as the same - if endowed with his consciousness from that time, he were to be transferred back to the same an area in which he had lived 1000 years before, the place would be totally unfamiliar. You need only to look at the rocky debris of a river valley and observe the mass, which has been removed by the water from the region of the high mountains and has accumulated at the mouth of the river to a depth of about 2,500 feet and so to flow from the mouth of the river into an ocean, to see these changes. Then you will understand that the mountains two to three thousand years ago had a completely different shape than they do nowadays.

    [02] It was necessary to start with this, so that you can more easily understand the Pre-Noah situation of the mountains.

    [03] We will begin with northern Europe and move partially over to Asia, then into the southern parts of Europe and then finally to Africa.

    [04] From the mountain ranges, which go almost through the middle of Sweden and Norway, one major mountain range in the north went to the Ural Mountains and was joined with this range in an ascending direction. It had a foot width up to 100-200 German miles [460 to 920 of our miles. In 1860 one German mile was 7.4 km or 4.6 miles of today]. This mountain range was also joined to the present mountains of Denmark. This range today more or less separates the western plains of Europe from the mountainous parts of Germany (in Europe) into Switzerland. Thus the Swiss mountain ranges were connected with the Urals and these, by way of Central Asia, with Tibet. This was an uninterrupted crest of mountains, whose lower parts still had an elevation from 5,000 to 6,000 feet above sea level. However, they were not of an equally [consistent geophysical] solid makeup. Therefore these mountains were ruptured through floods by the fall of central seas, an occurrence which will be described further below, and who at that time had no connection to the main ocean, and swept away in different directions.

    [05] At that time, there were two main central seas.

    [06] The northern one filled the large basin which, started from today's Black Sea, was joined to the present Baltic over European Russia and all adjacent flat lands. It partially also incorporated the plains of the present day European part of Turkey up to the so-called Iron Gates. If there were big storms, with its mountain-sized waves, it washed out bottlenecks up to Belgrade and Semlin. This was the Northern central sea.

    [07]The Second Central Sea, which had no connection with the Northern central sea and now bears the name, the "Mediterranean Sea", was, like the Black Sea, unrelated to any world ocean. But its surface was not any less in size than the Black Sea or the Northern one. In the area of today's Fiume, a wide and long valley stretches into Croatia and, from there, with different branches the river of the Save, stretches up to Kraina and those regions beyond, where high mountains begin. On the other [western] side it covered the present kingdom of Venice, as well as Lombardy and some eastern parts of France, extended into Africa through the Nile valley up to the cataracts and covered the great sand desert [Sahara].

    [08] In fact from Asia, a note-worthy high mountain range stretched to here and significant traces of it are still present today. This mountain range stretched from the north-eastern parts of Africa up to the high cataracts which are connected with the high mountains of Africa today. By a rather high mountain range the Straits of Gibraltar were connected with the Spain of today and thus formed the Second Central Sea which was comparable to the size of the Northern Central Sea. But it was generally many fathoms deeper than the North Middle Sea of which the Black Sea today is a remnant.

    [09] Now there was also a Third Central Sea. To investigate where this was located, you may take a look at those plains and valleys which are traversed today by the Danube, Drava and Mur, together with their tributaries. Of course, at that time this smaller Central Sea was known to no one, because Europe was not inhabited in prehistoric times. There was a large assortment of all kinds of animals, typically of giant form. In certain caves fossilized remains can be found today. Rocks and sands can also still produce fossilized remnants.

    [10] You must not think that this little Central Sea existed on its own. Especially in Europe, there were a number of significantly large lakes, which were connected with the Third Central Sea by existing outlets. The Carniola or its plains deep into Upper Carniola was a separate lake, of which today's 'Ljubljana Marsh' is a remainder. This was connected with the Second Central Sea through an outflow into the region of today's Rann. This Second Sea covered wide areas of Croatia.

    [11] One major part linked to the Third Central Sea extended over today's Drava valley into the area of the Fall dominion. In a different area the Drava River made its way through a long series of mountains to the region of today's settlement of Eis. There an important lake formed, of which Lake Werth [Wörthersee] is a remainder today. One part of this lake stretched to the Drava Valley, to reach over to Villach and many smaller lakes were connected to it.

    The Enns valley, we know today, was a lake of its own, which made its way through the so-called Gesaeuse mountains and beyond. This was so, until it connected with a larger lake, which, after the Danube valley, covered all surfaces of Bavaria and, partially, the wide Inn Valley in Tirol. Like the Danube, the Mur was connected with the Third Central sea.

    A smaller lake filled today's Wildon, up to Goesting. Behind Goesting lay another lake, Mur Lake. This - covered the bottom and flattened side valleys, which in turn made smaller lakes and were connected with the main lake through small outlets. Today Switzerland has a large quantity of such little lakes some of which are remnants of that time.

    [12] With the above you have an adequate picture of the pre-flood arrangement of the mountains and bodies of water from this small part of the world. Now we want to look at Central Asia and the mountain range which separates Central Asia from South Asia. We can then consider the real cradle of the Adamite human race. [ ]

    [13] As was shown, one mountain range stretched from the Ural Mountains to Tibet, which was rutted at that time by a number of the most fertile valleys. The rivers coming from the mountains went through these valleys and gushed northward.

    [14] In Hanoch's time, the mountains were inhabited, in particular with the descendants of Seth while the followers of Hanoch spread out in the plains far beyond this mountain range. But as they saw that the mountain residents had more advantages than they did in their fertile and far extending flatlands, they began to taunt and persecute these mountain residents. In spite of the warnings to them, these persecutions did not cease but with the help of their explosive devices, forerunners of Chinese gunpowder, they began to literally destroy these mountains by drilling deep holes. In their blindness, they provided an outlet, not only for the large bodies of water, over whose ponds these mountains were situated, but also for those far distant areas covering Tibet, and in the wide stretches north, to the Urals. As a result in the area of today's Caspian Sea, where Hanoch once stood, a great flooding took place, and the thrust of the water was so powerful that it reached a height of between 7,000 and 8,000 feet above the other seas. The amount of water was further increased and sustained by a long period of rainfall over all of central Asia.

    [15] This unusually high level of water in all of central Asia was channelled into a powerful runoff through what today is the Volga valley. It raised the water level of this central sea by many fathoms and so everything was devastated especially in the area of the present Constantinople [Istanbul] as the not so firm isthmus was not in a position to be an obstacle for the rupture as extraordinary fire eruptions had formed earlier.

    [16] The fact that Noah with his ark found ground on a plateau of the Ararat proves how high the waters of Middle Asia had risen. The principal runoffs of most of the bodies of water in Middle Asia flowed to the North and East; however, a significant part of the runoff flowed to the South and West. Thus, the second large central sea was so overfilled that, partly because of its weight and mainly from fire eruptions under the earth, it made its way out into the Atlantic Ocean and in a few hundred years ran off to an extent that all the fertile plains directly connected to it were drained - so that step by step especially the coastal areas could be populated starting from Asia.

    [17] For the most part this was done by the surviving peoples in the highlands in Asia and those from the Urals, which was a fertile and wide stretch of land to the northern sea. It was from there the remaining part of northern Europe was populated. The Tauriscans also descended from these peoples, settling on the mountains of Styria and many other countries. They lived peacefully among each other until the acquisitiveness of the Greeks and Romans discovered them.

    [18] The isthmus, which connected Europe with Asia at the time of the Hanochistic flood, was also called the Isthmus of Deucalion. It was named after the patriarch who belonged to the mountain residents and was a type of prophet throughout Western Asia - he was called Deucalion, which means "one sent by God" or "I come from God". Thus, the great flood was called the Deucalion flood by the people who inhabited this part of South Asia. That was until, after several centuries, the descendents of Noah revealed the cause and course of events of the flood together with all the circumstances involved. Over the course of many years, Central Asia became a dry and desolate land which was uninhabitable. Only towards China and at the foot of the Tibetan Highlands was it fertile and habitable.

    [19] It is from these areas that the Mongols, Huns, Tatars, and Turkomans known to you originated. After the overpopulation of their lands, they were faced with having to migrate and partly turned to the East and some to the West. There they caused the local populations distress and embarrassment.

    [20]In the East, the old Sihinites and the Meduhedites in Japan felt the power and might of the Mongols. In the West, especially the Huns and Tatars (later with the Turkomans) made themselves noticeable and caused the migrations well-known to you.

    [21] Nowadays, attempts have been made to create fertile oases in the desolate parts of Central Asia; but the knowledge needed to make such lands fertile is buried in pagan superstition- thus, this stretch of land will have to wait a long time before it can reach its pre-Noah fertility.

    [22] The mammoths, as well as other grass and leaf eating animals, resting under ice and snow, which are frequently found today, prove how fertile the lands were at that time, and this also includes Siberia. After the destruction of this fertile land, they could no longer nourish themselves and completely died out. Among these mammals are the giant deer, the giant sheep, the giant unicorn [horse], and more. Today petrified remains are found in the Ural Mountains, the caves of Northern Tibet, and under the snow and ice of Siberia.

    [23] Here the question might be asked as to why the remains of human bodies are not found, especially in Siberia. The answer is, the human body is much more ethereal in all its parts and is created subject to decay from the very beginning (that is, as far as Adam's descendents are concerned).

    [24] As far as the pre-Adamic so called "human animals" are concerned, petrified remains are found here and there (these humans are Cephonasims, "observers of the firmament"). They occupy a position between the descendents of Cain and the apes currently found (Chimpanzees and Orang Utans).

    [25] Among all the animal species, they possessed the most instinctual intelligence and built their very primitive dwellings here and there. They supplied the sections of brooks and rivers which were not too wide with rocks and built a type of bridge over these spots. If the water began to flow over such bridges - which was usually the case - they built a second bridge upstream. Often they continued this work with the result of ten or more terraced bridges, In the long run, this was of little use, because the water began to swell rise and again overflowed over the bridges.

    [26] These walls of which we find traces today, originated from people who had a short tail with heavy tuft of hair. These walls especially those found in mountainous regions were built long before the times of Adam. But they are as little the work of free human reasoning as the purposeful little dwellings of the beavers in those waters, where these animals find a rich food supply.

    [27] There are other species of animals on earth that built and set up their dwellings in this way so that men who find them are astounded. But these dwellings are easily recognized as the work of animals, because they appear in the same type and form. The materials from which they are built can be analyzed by an experienced chemist. The building materials cannot be taken from nature, any more than the material from which the spider spins its web, the bee builds its cells, and the snail its shell. As it is with such animals, it is not much different with the pre-Adamites proper, which here and there can be found in the forests of Africa and America.

    [28] I think that I have shown you the Adamic form of the earth clearly and briefly, and you will have little more to ask about it.

    [29] I have only two final observations:

    [30] The first is that the present Danube channelled its way through the Iron Gates several hundred years later - human hands were needed to regulate the bed of the river so that this part was navigable for vessels. Where the Mur lakes have created obstacles, you can look at the hills laying around the Murboden and the Murboden itself and the detritus. This will tell you how these hills arose - along with this, the present third bank, formed by the river Mur. There you will easily find the remains of destroyed embankments.

    [31] In the ground around Graz, you will find fairly heavy boulders, but not at a great depth. They are mostly of a significant hardness. Downstream from Wildon the Mur is less harsh. Only here and there heavy rolled-off limestone can be found. Further, under Radkersburg to the outlet into the Drau you will find more sand than rolled off loose rocks. This is because the Mur had a wide bed and couldn't didn't exert much pressure (its fall was too small).

    [32] If you go to Egypt, in the vicinity of the Cataract rapids, you'll find little rock debris; instead, you'll see larger quantities of red-brown and white sand. The cause is this: from the area of the cataracts to the Mediterranean Sea the gradient is very small (in regard to height). Other rivers have a stronger fall toward the ocean, with the exception of the Danube into the Black Sea, the Volga into the Caspian Sea and the Amazon into the Atlantic Ocean.

    [33] As far as an alleged flooding in America is concerned (dark sagas about this exist among natives), nothing can be said in the way of proof of general flooding there. At that time, the lowlands in this part of the world were under water. Over time, this part of the world, spread out from north to south, and was lifted by the volcanic fire eruptions above sea level - and the sea was forced to increasingly run off.

    [34] Along with this another great natural occurrence for this earth happened.

    [35] In this primeval time of the earth when, based on the law of sea migration, the greater part of the ocean was located towards the North, a continuous chain of islands stretched from the westernmost point of the coast of Africa to the Eastern corner of Brazil. In this way, it divided the Northern Sea of the Atlantic Ocean from the southern part. These two seas were connected by a number of straits of which the largest was hardly as wide as the Red Sea.

    [36] At that time, in which, because of the forces of fire under the earth, all parts of the world, especially the ocean floor, had to sustain great changes, the greater part of the islands mentioned sank, together with thousands of large and small islands, into the deep ocean floor. Through this wide opening the Northern Sea could then run off more easily into the Southern Sea. Many islands and lowlands emerged in the northern part of the earth, and thus also the lands of America.

    [37] On the other hand the tip of Africa formally reaching far down towards the South Pole is still under water. Also, a sort of hill is formed in the ocean under the foothills of the Cape of Good Hope, over which ships have trouble sailing, especially with heavy winds. They often must make a detour to reach the flat part of the Eastern Sea [Atlantic]. For steamships it is much easier now. [ ]

    [38] Here you have the great flood of America and that of many larger and smaller islands. But search no more, or I would have to lead you back into periods of primeval creation and many sea migrations. There you would experience nothing more useful than the old woman who couldn't understand how she got so many wrinkles and lines, even though she had lived a good and chaste life, whereas when she was 20, you couldn't locate a single wrinkle on her whole body.

    [39] Yes, all we can say is: "God, the Lord arranged all of that, so that the times change and, with all that surrounds us, we human beings change as well."

    [40] Thus let us let the earth rest; in a thousand years it will look quite different! And so we reach the end of the explanation I have given you so that you can more easily understand some other things from the Gospels and the writings of Moses. Amen!
