Following the path of the Ark of the Covenant PART 5 2nd Part

Well… I am going to let you read this for yourself the concluding words concerning the treasure by placing it here in the following images of the two pages of the translated edition which talks of the treasure. Keep in mind, I am not saying there is no Aztec Treasure in the regions North of Mexico, I am simply saying NO Aztec let alone 2000 of them loaded up tons of worthless Gold and Silver to take it back to a place where in there is more than they could haul with 2 million men. However there were certain items of sacredness to the Aztec, brought back to the area of the Caves and further North to their ancient home of Aztlan, it might just surprise you where that is or was.

Although I hold in high regard the works of Tezozomoc in what I believe to be the most accurate record of the Aztec available, I highly recommend Diego Duran’s History of the Indies as it reads very much as Cronica Mexicana By Tezozomoc and it has been translated into English.

From the recently translated book
History of the Indies of New Spain by Diego Duran 1588

There is a story that appears in the Aztec record some years prior to Moctezuma II, in Chapter 27 of Duran’s rendition, Moctezuma the 1st decides he wants to discover the Land of his fathers, the home of his ancestors and begins to make plans to send emissaries and an army North to find this place to see if anyone was still there. Moctezuma tells his War department head, Tlacaelel or prime minister of his plans and this apparently throws up red flags and Tlacaelel tells the King that this is not a good idea and that he should not send his warriors which would appear as intent of war, but that he should send his elderly magicians and sorcerers.

The king agrees with Tlacaelel and laden’s the magicians with Gold and many precious things, a treasure which could satisfy any 60 sorcerers which is the number he sent according to the record. The Sorcerers depart and go to a place some 40 miles to the north of Mexico in the Province of Tula to a hill called Coatepec and there they supposedly trace magic symbols on the ground invoking the powers of the evil one to help them find this land and with this the evil one supposedly turns them into animals and birds and the evil one takes them and their gifts to the shores of a large lake with an large Island or hill. At this they resume their human figure and supposedly find the mother of their pretend god and the people who remained behind so long ago. But these people do not grow old and are very light and because of the ways of the Aztec and the heavy foods they eat they cannot ascend the hill.

After meeting with the mother who descended the hill, and who was a nasty dirty looking woman due to her supposed morning of her son having not returned, she accepts their gift and returns them with a message for her son. 40 of the sorcerers return and tell Moctezuma all that supposedly occurred and he buys it hook line and sinker. Now you’ll have to read the account for yourself, but I include it because it is a supposed return trip to the home of their ancestors but they were not perused by an enemy.  Strangely enough 20 of the sorcerers did not return to which the remaining tell Moctezuma that the evil one must have taken them in payment.

Personally I think the sorcerers knew damned well they were not going to find this place nor were they in any condition to undergo the trek due to their old age or having other motives. I believe they went 40 miles north of Mexico and conjured the whole story to satisfy Moctezuma of which 40 of them wished to return while 20 did not and took the treasures for themselves with an agreement between all of them never to divulge the truth or they would all be put to death.

So to this point, I still do not find in the Aztec Record, any evidence of anything of the treasure the Spaniards wanted as to being taken back to their ancient home.  In the following chapter however I do find the possible evidence we seek. But before I continue with that chapter, let me give you a possible scenario which is just a hypothesis and I have nothing really to support the idea, or do I?

In the story likely created by the sorcerers, as an urgency to return the god or the sacred bundle they called a god, rather than for the riches and inability to perform the task, is it possible that these sorcerers or at least twenty of them were actually righteous men or at least men who saw the importance of taking this sacred artifact back to its resting place until its purpose would again in the future resume and knowing well and good it was no God, and was the reason of so much suffering and death among the Aztec? Is it possible they used this incident as a ploy to make a replica of this sacred item and placing it in the position of the sacred bundle or god in which no one was allowed to see, switching it out and carrying it out with all the other things the king had given them to take to their ancient home? Could it be that with mutual consent of the 60 that the sacred item was returned by the 20 who never returned to Mexico? Also is it possible that Tlacaelel was in fact a righteous man and that this whole scenario of the Aztec Nation is in fact a type and shadow of the Israelites in Egypt? Could Tlacaelel be a type and shadow of Joseph of old, second to the Pharaoh? I can’t help but wonder why Tlaceaelel turned Moctezuma’s mind away from the idea of sending an army to the land of their ancestors he supposed as to being the prime minister or head of the Aztec war department and that Huitzilopochtli could not have a part in this whole incident. After reading the entire history according to Duran, this part just does not fit.

In a previous chapter and in 1424, Tlacaelel at a younger age, carries out a noble act in that when the Aztecs were under threat of annihilation by the joining kingdom of Azcapotzalco, the Aztecs as a whole convinced King Izcoatl, being the fourth King or Emperor of the Aztec, he decides at the will of the people that rather than being defeated in war convinced they had no chance that it would be better to go to the King of Azcapotzalco and submit themselves as slaves and that they should carry their god Huitzilopochtli to Azcapotzalco and deliver him to their new ruler. This is indeed a strange act and worthy of ponder.

Tlacaelel who was the Nephew of King Itzcoatl, hears this and steps forward exclaiming to the King and the Aztecs, asking them what is this! Have you lost your wits? The King who apparently had his hands tied in the matter was well pleased that his Nephew had stepped forward as the King thought this was a slavish act that his people were about to perform, and expressed his desire that he would rather have a court to honor them rather than dishonor. Turning to the people, the King asks  them after Tlacaelel’s speech, if they still wanted to carry out this cowardly act, and no one would speak, the new plan required sending someone to Azcapotzalco to propose peace where in when asked for a volunteer, again no one would speak. Tlacaelel steps forward again and bravely volunteers to undergo this likely fatal act as the people of Azcapotzalco had been instructed not to allow anyone from Tenochtitlan to enter their city and should any of them try, to kill them.

One reason Tlacaelel proposed this idea is that it is said in the Aztec Record that the Aztec highly believed that they should never incite war and that they after suing for peace were unsuccessful then they were justified to defend themselves in war. I wonder where this concept came from. If you recall, the Nephite were of the same belief and it was because of ignorance to this law, that they were defeated and destroyed as a people.

Now I may have carried on more than I needed to but I wanted the reader to become somewhat familiar with this so called god, Huitzilopochtli which was not a living man but and object of sacred background of which no man was allowed to see other than certain designated priests and that they had made an Image to pacify the people giving them something to look at and keeping the sacred object hidden away. The priests who were the go between from this sacred item and the people, claiming that it talked to them, obviously were not talking to some God but it would appear that Lucifer had stepped in to have his time with this fallen people.

Now there was one thing about this Sacred Artifact among the Aztec that baffled me for some time and kept its true form from me, and that is that the Aztec gave this thing a name, a birth place, mother, brothers and sisters in fact hundreds, this seems very strange indeed. How could this sacred artifact have a birth place, mother, etc?

I also wanted the reader to make the connection if not already, the strange similarities of the Aztec religion and Buddhism. It is generally presented to today’s public that the Aztec was a heathen race, a barbarian culture due to the focus given to their human sacrifices and flaying of men ritual in which I would agree was indeed barbaric. But in reality the Aztec was a highly religious people doing ONLY what they believed their gods wanted them to do, not understanding that the majority of which came from the wrong source through corrupt priests. In reality, the Aztec religion was a bastardized version of the Buddhist religion, that in and of itself had already strayed from its conception due to no one writing the teachings of it for near 300 years but more likely 600 years after its inception.

The Aztec likely learned the more fundamental parts of their religion from two sources, that of the surviving Nephites after being expelled from their homelands of Aztlan, carrying with them their former beliefs and sacred items, and that of those whom they most likely intermixed with being the descendants of those who once inhabited the 7 Caves and are likely very well connected or the very same people of the Queen of Sheba and those of the Ajanta Caves. I wonder what response we might get from those of the Buddhist belief if they came to understand the possibility of Buddhism having been in a large way, its origination HERE on this continent and taken back to India through the people of Sheba after their Queen had been taught by Solomon!

Before parting from this chapter I want to address the idea that this strange object the Aztec had made their god which had a mother, brothers and sister etc… I was talking with a friend of mine about this very thing, in looking at the Aztec religion and their belief that their King was the very incarnation of their god Huitzilopochtli, the Buddha religion is the same believing that their religious leader is the literal incarnation of Buddha. I could not help but wonder where this similar idea came from but it would seem it may have came from the same source.

Since the creation of the Ark of the Covenant, there has always been one key figure who was in direct authority over the Ark with Moses being the physical creator under the command of God the Father. Certain priests or religious figures were the care takers of it just as in the days of the Aztec. However, Moses died and his successor Joshua took over, then King Saul followed by King David and then his son King Solomon. Many of us have read the many events involving the Ark during the days of Solomon and we are fairly certain it was last reported as being in Jerusalem only to disappear. But my reasons for bringing this up is in that it would seem it was always over seen by a worthy or authoritative figure. It would appear the events of the creation of Buddhism possibly being the Queen of Sheba taking the teachings of Solomon back to her people, Sheba no doubt knew of the Ark and it would not be long before it made its way to the New World, which is actually the old, old world. Prior to the time the pre Aztec religion merged with from Buddhism some one was in charge of the Ark. Who ever this individual was prior to the Aztec departure from Aztlan and prior to living in the caves for near 2 to 300 years, this individual was likely highly regarded and was considered as the literal incarnation of Buddha, Solomon, Moses or God its creator. I would suspect at the time they departed from the caves their religious beliefs had certainly been altered now encompassing a large part of what they formerly believed as well as the Buddist like religion. Believing this highly regarded individual as the incarnation of the God or creator and being a manifestation in the flesh as the sacred item itself of which the Aztec believed, would fully justify it having a mother, birth place and brothers and sisters. But where was considered the birth place? I suppose the one individual regarded as the creator could be just about anyone in authority over the Ark or a fine mixture of the many that have been.

It is said that the Ark or what they called Huitzilopochtli had several hundreds of brothers and sisters; this may not be far from the truth. King Solomon had hundreds of wives and concubines, how many children do you think he might have had and what about his father David? If Solomon did indeed take the Queen of Sheba to wife and she had a son, this some would have had hundreds of siblings. In Buddhism it is the original Buddha whom it is believed as being the one incarnated, I would suspect it would be the same with the Aztec,

Now I don’t know who the authoritative figure was at the time of their departure from the caves, but it would seem he had passed on or murdered and it was his sister who accompanied the Aztec in their migration or at least until they and their new found false god found her as a threat and left her behind. It is likely the priest of evil design had taken over at this time given the many recorded things whispered to them from their supposed god. So with this knowing speculative idea, we begin to understand how the Ark known as Huitzilopochtli, could have a mother, sisters etc…

Now, earlier herein I mentioned that I have not found any evidence of anything being taken BACK by Aztecs to where it came from, however I do find the possible evidence we seek, in fact two possible evidences, one in the following chapter, and the other in the next paragraph.

According to supposed Indian tradition, if the source is accurate, "an expedition of well-organized and warlike men some dressed in the beautiful feathers of the Quetzalcoatl bird, had come from the south escorting a long line of slaves, dragging boxlike containers shrouded by skins. The party went directly to the Grand Canyon and descended down from the south rim, the exact place they descended is known to only a few.  The treasure was placed in a cavern that evidently had been chosen earlier. The slaves were killed on the spot, while half of the men remained as a guard and the others returned to the south. It was probably planned by the Aztecs that they would recover the cargo once the Spaniards had been driven into the sea, however, months and years went by without word for the garrison at the cavern. Eventually, they intermarried with the local Paiutes and told them tales about a great Indian empire in the south with their emperor, who would return in the future with an army to bring prosperity to the Paiute tribe. Until then, the treasure must be guarded from discovery by anyone. It was a responsibility that meant annihilation for the Paiutes should they permit the hidden cache to be stolen. I can’t help but wonder if this wasn’t the same event in which Moctezuma the 1st sent his priests in search of his ancestral home and the mother of  Huitzilopochtli, the war god. However," I feel this is a glorified version of the real story...

Following the path of the Ark of the Covenant PART 5 in 3 Parts

Ark of the Covenant among the Aztec?
Part 1 of 3

There are many legends and tales from the Native American Indian of what would have undoubtedly placed the Ark of the Covenant among them, including and primarily the Aztec, whether a replica, representation of it and how did they obtain a knowledge of it? Due to the many details found in my research, I had long supposed that those who make up the Aztec which means by the way… people of whiteness, whom according to their chronicles, is of the Later Group of Families who came from the North East is non other than what Mormons call Nephites. In addition to them who became a part of them in AD times being likely those of the Roman Colonies and or Welsh, there are those who originally or first came to the land near 4400 years ago from the Tower of Babel as indicated in their 1st migration. The former were in fact of Hebrew Origins and likely the people of Lehi and or Mulek according to Mormon belief, regardless, the Haplogroup X DNA in and around the Great Lakes Region cannot be denied.

Haplogroup X distribution

Of the seven tribes or families of the second migration found in the record, it has been long suspect that those originally called the Aztec or People of Aztlan, Aztlan meaning whiteness or place of the Herons. These people were called Aztec long before they migrated south and after the other families or tribes had left the 7 caves, they changed their name to Mexican, Mexica, or Mecitan in honor of their priest and Lord who guided them on their migration whose name was Meci. Later after acquiring the land of Mexico they would take the name Tenocha from the tenochtli or prickly pear cactus. All seven tribes originally came from Aztlan but for some reason left and as a result of this untold reason they found themselves according to the record, in humiliation. Perhaps they were cast out by others of their kind, or were defeated by an enemy, both are possible but I would lean towards a curse upon their land in which they knew they had brought upon themselves, great changes in their land due to earthquakes diminishing the living waters that fed their land making it a near paradise. After leaving Aztlan the tribes together found their way south to the place of grottoes, the seven caves or underground cities in which were long abandoned by the previous people who were the ancestors of those whom they would eventual join, the Toltec. It is said in the Aztec record that the entire course of the migration from Aztlan to Mexico was near 400 years and that these tribes occupied the caves for near two to three hundred years of the 400. 

The first tribe to leave the caves migrating south and eventually to Mexico was the Xochimilca followed by the Chalcas, then the Tenanecs and Colhuas and after them the Tlalhuicas and Tlaxcalans. The Aztec remained behind for a time as a result of a divine command given of their God or what they thought was a God. These people affirmed that their God had promised them this land for they are the people he held dearest. It is clear to me that these people at this point were taking an ancient promise, and extending it and isolating it to apply only them. As you will see, what they thought was their God whispering to their priest and visiting them in their dreams was in Fact Satan, taking advantage of their fallen state and by use of a sacred artifact which was likely in their possession, or their own mimicked version of it having lost the original or lost the means by which to posses it and worthiness to use it with the original safely hidden away.

In the Aztec religion, Huitzilopochtli [Ark of the Covenant)] Huītzilopōchtli [wi:t͡siloˈpoːt͡ʃt͡ɬi]), is a Mesoamerican deity of war, sun, human sacrifice and the patron of the city of Tenochtitlan. He was also the national god of the Mexicas, also known as Aztecs, of Tenochtitlan. Many in the pantheon of deities of the Aztecs were inclined to have a fondness for a particular aspect of warfare. However, Huitzilopochtli was known as the primary god of war in ancient Mexico. Since he was the patron god of the Mexica, he was credited with both the victories and defeats that the Mexica people had on the battlefield. It is important to remember that the defeat of their patron deity meant the defeat of his people. This is one of the many reasons why they were concerned with providing exquisite tribute and food for him. Not only was it important for him to survive his battles, but the fate of the Mexica people would have rested in the victory of Huitzilopochtli. He is referred to as: the Dart-Hurler, the divine hurler, and a terror to the Mixteca. Originally he was of little importance to the Nahuas, but after the rise of the Aztecs, Tlacaelel reformed their religion and put Huitzilopochtli at the same level as Quetzalcoatl, Tlaloc, and Tezcatlipoca, making him a solar god. Through this, Huitzilopochtli replaced Nanahuatzin, the solar god from the Nahua legend.(Wiki)

The visual Idol rendition of Huitzilopochtli
Of which the people were allowed to see.

This god was given a name, brothers and sisters, a mother and a personality, not much of one but none the less. According to the Aztec record, the object not the statue rendition seen above, was carried by four men or priests by inserting two poles into the sides of it and carrying it upon their shoulders. It was kept covered and no one was allowed to see it or touch it, to do so meant death. It was always carried before them in war, for which they were always victorious.

According to the Aztec record the Aztec arrived in Mexico some 300 years after the previously mentioned tribes. In their travels in search of this Promised Land their god kept promising them and was actually leading them from, they found themselves somewhere North of Mexico. Before I expand upon this location, the Aztec record tells that when they left the caves, they took their principle god with them, his name was Huitzilopotchli, he had four custodians to serve him, I did not know what this meant until later in the record it is explained that these four would carry this god on their shoulders. Any god that needs to be carried isn’t a God. The people held this God in great reverence to the degree that no one but his keepers dared approach or touch it. It came concealed in a coffer of rushes, so that none of the people had ever seen the form of their God. It is likely that this god was in fact the Ark of the Covenant or a cheap Memorex.

It sounds to me as though Satan had a good thing going back then, mimicking the True God promising them things they had long before been promised and not realizing they were already in the land which was promised to them in Aztlan and even prior to coming to Aztlan and they likely did not understand that that promise or fulfillment of covenant would not take place until the final gathering of Israel when Jesus the Christ returned to Rule his Kingdom. They were in the Promised Land when they arrived on this continent some 1500 years or so prior, but their occupation upon the Promised Land or stewardship is and was conditional until the fulfillment. In other words, you are welcome to the land and free to be here, but you will keep my laws and worship the one true and living God. Apparently they had lost this knowledge and now their pretend god was leading them FROM the Promised Land, with false promises of a promised land, it is customary that Satan mimics the true and living God.

After leaving the Caves, they arrive at some undisclosed beautiful place along the way and their god instructs them to deceive a portion of their people at their request of having some of them remain at this place because of its beauty, he instructs them to wait until a portion of them go into the lake to bathe and while they are bathing to steel their clothes and leave them behind. Strange god indeed…

This god also had a sister whose name was Malinalxochitl (wild grass flower) who apparently, Satan … er I mean he who was posing as Huitzilopochtli was threatened by. She is described in the record as beautiful and of spirited disposition but then the record tags her as a very clever and cunning woman, skillful in the use of magic and sorcery. It says she caused much harm to the people and that they only tolerated her because she was the sister of Huitziloponchtli. The people asked their god to get rid of her of which he complies and tells them because of her evil ways and being dangerous to them and because of his love for them, he instructs them to wait until she slept and her servants and leave them behind with them not knowing the way he intended they would not be able to find them and remain behind. Wow, this is indeed a strange god! My guess would be that she was constantly trying to get her people back on righteous path and consistently foiling their pretend god’s plans, knowing well and good who it was and who was truly leading the people. This perspective of mine comes from what occurs years later.

At some point prior to the following incident Huitzilopochtli becomes angry with the people according to the priests who claim revelation from the god because they arrive at another beautiful place and the people wanting so bad to remain there they begin to rejoice insinuating that this is the place and wanting to celebrate because they were finally there! And the god answers the priests saying, Who are they who disregard my will, who object to my decisions and try to contradict them? Are they by chance mightier than I? Tell them I will take vengeance upon them before tomorrow so they will not dare give opinions in those things that I have determined and for which I am here. At this point they apparently had made a humanoid physical rendition of this god or had it all along for the people to see as apposed to the one no one could approach or look at, and they say that the face of the idol become ugly and frightening with a diabolical scowl and the people were filled with fear.

At midnight they heard a great noise coming from the divine ball court and skull rack, both sacred places dedicated to this god. When morning came they found the primary instigators of this rebellion together with the woman called Coyoxauhqui dead with their breasts torn open and their hearts removed. This was the incident that caused the Aztec to began removing the hearts of their sacrificial victims believing their god only ate hearts. Ya… this is a god I’d follow.

The sister of this god, Malinalxochitl who apparently had remained behind with her servants or followers as the record calls them, (Remember you ALWAYS have to take into consideration who is writing the story) and according to the record, (Diego Duran’s 1500’s version),  she establishes a place called Malinalco which carries the same name to this day. Malinalxochitl who was said to be a wicked sorceress, later gave birth to a son, the record says she taught him all her tricks and witchcraft. My guess would be she taught him to walk upright in the Lords way. After this son grew up she shared the experience of being abandoned by her people at the hand of this pretend god Huitzilopochtli, Her son’s heart becomes filled with wrath at the sight of his mother tears and promised to seek him out and destroy him and his followers with his arts and cunning. When the mother saw her sons determination she told him it was her desire as well and helped him to prepare for his search and to incite all the nations to destroy Huitzilopochtli with their most fiendish skills and cunning. Her sons name was Copil, meaning diadem or crown, interesting....

It would be my guess this son was a rightful heir to the throne or leadership of these people and like his mother desired to break the bonds which Satan had upon their people and free them from his deceptions and the wicked priests who had charge. Copil learns of Huitzilopochtli’s arrival at Chapultepec and he goes from town to town telling the people of this plan to destroy this evil [My words], the record written by the faithful followers of Huitzilopochtli reads that he was kindling the fire of wrath provoking the hearts of the people against the Aztec, inflaming the other nations so they would destroy them. Copil was successful in his attempt convincing all the cities round about to join in and destroy them attacking all at once. Then the record says; when the evil Copil saw that his scheme had been successful and the plan was about to be carried out, he went up to the top of a hill at the shore of a lake where there are some famous hot springs to watch the destruction of the Aztec. Huitzilopochtli warned the priest and instructed them to go to the hill where Copil was and prior to the attack capture him, kill him and bring him his heart of which they did and were told to cast his heart out into the marsh.

The surrounding cities carried out their attempt to destroy the Aztec of which they were almost successful but they managed to cut there way through to an abandoned city. However the armies managed to capture the king of the Aztec Huitzilihuitl, not to be confused with Huitzilopochtli, and killed him. But the Aztec regained their strength and their charlatan god begins to deceive them again.

He cons the people again into going boldly to the Lord of Calhuacan to ask for land in which they can settle, the Lord not wanting them around but hesitant to annihilate them consults with his council and they agree to give them the worst land around full of vipers and poisonous snakes thinking they would eventually be destroyed by them, at first the Aztec were horrified and afraid but later became accustom to them and eventually began to capture them and made them their principle food. Eventually they were all but gone of which this amazed the people and Lord of Caluacan gaining a little favor in their eyes.

Again their god having a thirst for blood and war tells the priest that they need to look for a woman who will be known as the woman of discord and will be known as their Grandmother or mother in the place they will dwell. He tells them again to prepare for war and tells them to go to the King of Calhuacan and ask for his daughter to serve him, he explains that the King will give her and she will be the woman of discord. The king seeing this as a way to end strife and maybe tame the enmity between them and enthralled by the idea of his beloved daughter regarded as a Goddess and he agrees.

After taking her with the King thinking she is to become a bride to the Aztec god and mistress to the Aztec, then O’l Huitzilopochtli tell them through the wicked priests they must kill her and sacrifice her in order she become their mother, then he tells them after she is dead to flay her! And dress one of the principle youths in her skin and then invite the king to come and adore the Godess and offer a sacrifice. Well the King falls for this hook line and sinker and calls all his dignitaries together to go and worship his daughter. The people not really wanting to go, accept the Kings invite and they go to the Aztecs. The King goes into the temple and discovers in horror what has happened and runs out calling his people to arms to destroy the Aztec for the evils they have done and to avenge his daughter! The people of Calhuacan attacked but the Aztec were prepared having their own invention of weapon called by them fisgas like a harpoon [or what archaeologist today call Atlatl] (See Alma 49:4) brought with them from Aztlan, they manage to flee and escape the people of Calhuacan. This is when they finally reached the place where they built Mexico city, and of course their god finds a cactus with an eagle and proclaims his prophecies of leading them to the Land of Promise to be fulfilled. Years later the Aztec through talks and gaining favor by their great accomplishments, become the dominant power in the land.

300 years later the prophecy would prove to be a lie. Cortez invades the land and the only thing said about this god of the Aztec is that an image of the god was stormed by the Spaniards reaching the top of the temple and threw it down the stairs. Where the actual god, or the bundle which require four men to carry go? Contrary to popular belief I have yet to find any mention of the Aztec loading up hoards of Gold and Silver and taking it back to the ancient home of their ancestors. In fact there is a mention of the treasure found beginning at page 558 first page of Chapter LXXVIII titled in part, Which treats of how Don Herman Cortes, Marques del Valle, after having conquered Mexico- Tenochtitlan left that city in good order…. WHAT!?.... good order? Well I guess it is true, evil will destroy evil.....

Following the path of the Ark of the Covenant PART FOUR

Puerco River Ark of the Covenant

Just 150 miles west of the nonexistent trash of the Hebrew Los Lunas Stone site with no Evian pottery, we have a curious petroglyph. I love petroglyph evidence because quite frankly, there isn’t anyone that can offer any rebuttal or argument of any merit, oh sure those who would argue using those old familiar words such as pure conjecture, frivolous, ridiculous or its just doodling yet any attempt to offer any argument just shows all the more how much they don’t know.  Until these people have traveled my road and compiled the evidence I have for near 25 years concerning the Native American Petroglyph and trying to prove or disprove the hypothesis of LaVan Martineau, they would do good to remain silent. If one chooses to call that arrogance, then so be it, it is what it is.

I find this petroglyph as not only evidence of the Ark of the Covenant on this continent, but also as evidence of Hebrew decent and presence, evidence of the authenticity of the Book of Mormon and of the knowledge of the Ark. Its purpose and use by these often portrayed as cave people who inhabited this land long before any of the methodology of today’s science was even known, is evidence of those who are of Hebrew decent.

In this section of the book I will do a breakdown of the panel with a subject in mind to see if this suspicious looking glyph may have something to do with the suspect subject, being the Ark of the Covenant. If you wish to somewhat follow along, you might want to read or re-read chapters 16, 17, 18 and two of the documentations at the end of the book Nephite North titled, The Ferron Friends, and the 3 Kings Panel.

Breakdown of the Puerco River Hieroglyph

Now keep in mind that just because I have been doing this for near 25 years does not make me right in what I do here, the mystery of the petroglyphs and hypothesis of being a written language such as Mayan and or Egyptian is far from resolved. After all, we are told and made to believe Mayan and Egyptian are now understood and that we can translate them; this could not be farther from the truth.

In the original breakdown I was having trouble with one combination of symbols being my first impression, a little hammock looking thing above the symbol for open. I originally thought it was a combination of two symbols being Objectionable and Valley (SEE Symbols List, The Rocks Begin to Speak by Lavan Martineau)

Lets start with the most obvious symbol found in the combination of symbols or Hieroglyph, that symbol being the universal symbol for, A designated Place (LaVan Martineau) or a manmade object or place (Author) This concept actually occurs several times within the hieroglyph however the main body of the glyph is this symbol which is representation of the Ark as a whole. It is a complete rectangle or square. If we look at the other examples within the main body we find two more examples as if to say, two more manmade objects and within them are steps.

Within or Into an Object
      This is a symbol combination

These symbols for steps can mean literal steps or figurative, steps are for the purpose of reaching a higher place. The word within is added because if you follow the lines incorporated into the steps which make up the interior of this hieroglyph and you find right angles which turn back and within which is the exact meaning of the symbol. Also notice the steps, 4 on one side and 5 on the other including the platform at the bottom representing a level as well, again this is evidence of steps to get to a higher place and is this not exactly what the commandments were for? But why were there only nine steps? This puzzled me knowing well and good what they represented until I reevaluated the history of the so called Ten Commandments.

On top of the main body we have two symbols for Open, why would these be placed in the position of the Cherubs? What was the purpose of the Cherubs in the case of the Ark? Cherubs are always associated with wings and taking individuals to places, Cherubs are known to be present upon receiving the word of God, in the case of the Ark the Cherubs were placed ON the Mercy Seat or lid which is indicated as the very narrow rectangle located just under the symbols for open, and the Lord said there he would be! Between the Cherubs. Now I know it is speculative but it would appear that the Cherubs were for opening a communication channel with God.

But now seemingly blocking or closing the opening of the open symbols is what appears to be a hammock, what better symbol to place at the opening point to indicate at rest or sleeping, but why? We’ll come back to that. I would think that further clarification that this is a hammock is indicated at the one on the left showing a gap between the hammock and the open symbol to show that it can be disconnected so that the mistake I made, is not made, therefore a hammock. The hammock was discovered by the Spaniards when the encountered the Taino Indians. No one knows the exact origins of the hammock but it would appear it was known for a very long time in the new world.

Notice on the top of the narrow rectangle symbolic of the Mercy Seat is the repeated or Sequence [d] symbol for Danger or Hurt, why would this be between the Cherubs (open symbols) and on top of the lid which is also the Mercy Seat? Why would it be dangerous to either sit upon the Mercy Seat, between the Cherubs or Open the lid? Some would say that all the mystical powers portrayed in the ark are nonexistent and are nothing but legends but from what I read there was and is a very real danger in opening it let alone touching the Ark without authority or worthiness to do so.

Assuming the narrow horizontal rectangle located within the body of the main glyph and on top is representation of the lid and or Mercy Seat, what is the same small narrow rectangle at the bottom? My guess would be it is representation of the Table mentioned in Exodus 25:23. Now I have found over the years there are no mistakes in the glyphs, if one occurred it was corrected by rubbing out the mistake and redoing it. I have never found an abnormality that didn’t have meaning and I mention this simply because at the right side of this bottom narrow horizontal rectangle, the bottom line curves and rises for some reason which I do not know at this time, I mention it simply because I feel compelled to do so for future reference and I am sure it will come to me before I am done writing this.

Now we can turn to the little figure with his elbow touching the glyph which makes up the Ark, can this little figure tell us anything? Let’s find out. It might appear that this little figure doesn’t say much but I think you will find it still speaks volumes. The overall figure is formed with a symbol that took me many years to identify, through trial and error several times over I have come to the realization that it is the symbol Linage, Genealogy or Decent from. As you know this was and is very important to the House of Israel simply because of the context of the Covenant made with them being the seed of Abraham. This is one thing I always admired about the Aztec, as far into iniquity they seem to have fallen, they never shirked their responsibility in documenting where they came from, however obeying the conditions given in the Covenant, they may have slacked off a bit, but considering their migrations spans near 4400 years, I’d say they did a pretty good job.

Hawaiian Linage

In the breakdown list above and preceding photo you see the symbol for linage, Notice the arms of the subject figure are in opposition and turned upward and in the position of doing and turning aside from, from what? Well as I see it they turned aside or fell from the genealogical teachings as to keeping the pure blood of Israel indicated by the opposition in direction AND indicated by the elbow touching the Ark itself turning away from it and what it represents but more specifically the Lid or Mercy Seat. The body of the figure is slanted to bring in the meaning of Stop[ped] or waiting. Interestingly enough to give further credence to the whole concept is what should be a feather on the head meaning having the Spirit or power of the Holy Ghost, it is falling and takes the shape of instead of the feather, a war club, a clear indication that they had fallen from following the Holy Spirit due to becoming a war like people. And then we have the ears or earrings of which I am not certain that I have this drawing correct and until a personal visit to the site, I can only speculate and if I have this correct the symbols which appear as earrings are the symbol for Gone or from here go. If this is the case it would imply that understanding is gone or their ability to listen.

Now back to the anomaly of the narrow rectangle at the bottom of the Glyph, I knew it would come to me, on the right side of the bottom you see that the line deters from being completely level or flat and it is proportional to what I believe is representation of the table not the Ark, which was to support the Ark while resting. I believe the reason for this imperfection is to convey the message that the table or that which supports it is not flat therefore the ability for the Ark to become un-steady is present or that the Ark is not at its designated resting place and there for in transit.

D&C 85:8
 8 While that man, who was called of God and appointed, that putteth forth his hand to steady the ark of God, shall fall by the shaft of death, like as a tree that is smitten by the vivid shaft of lightning.

Now to put it all together if you haven’t already, This place where the glyph is found was created to tell the story of the Ark being moved as a result of war and iniquity of the people and turning from the teachings, the ark rested here for a time but was not steady nor was it its intended place of rest. However the people have lost the understanding and turned from the Ark, its abilities and the teachings within and have lost the power of the Spirit due to this warring. The people have also turned from the covenant in keeping their covenants and genealogy or linage pure, at this time of their fallen state or iniquity it would be dangerous to try to open the Ark, steady the Ark or use it as it was intended.

It is likely the Ark at the time this hieroglyph was made, was returning to The home of the ancient ancestors, I would estimate the glyph being made at the time Moctezuma II and his people were returning the ark to the North in order the Spaniards did not get their hands on it, but more likely at a time prior to the Spaniards in the time of Moctezuma I, at the end of the Roman and Welsh rule near 1050 AD.

Following the path of the Ark of the Covenant PART THREE

Suggestive and Compelling Archeologic Evidence

Some time ago I wrote two articles one called The Nine Commandments of the Los Lunas Decalogue Stone and a following article called the Puerco River Ark of the Covenant, I had thought of just including the latter but the first of these two lends credence to the latter, perhaps you will see it and perhaps you won’t, but my reasoning for pointing this out is to simply say, regardless of what I have written in the articles, my belief today is that the Los Lunas Stone was carved by cultures who visited the Americas around 775-1050 AD, NOT by the earliest Native Americans. The earliest likelihood in which it could have been carved is about 100 BC, but I lean towards a much later date. Here are the two articles.

The Nine Commandments
and the Los Lunas Decalogue Stone

Historically we have always been taught of the Ten Commandments in almost every work pertaining to the subject reference is always made as “the Ten Commandments,” but do we really have anything from a credible source that says specifically how many commandments were given on the two tablets? Only 3 times in the King James Bible does it say specifically Ten Commandments? Although there are hundreds of Commandments we will only focus on the supposed Ten.

In looking at the accepted version of Ten Commandments we have;

Exodus 20:1-17
1  AND God spake all these words, saying,
2 I [am] the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the saboth day, to keep it holy
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day [is] the 526rayish of the LORD thy God: [in it] thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates:
11 For [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the 526rayish day, and hallowed it.
12  Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that [is] thy neighbour’s.

Seems pretty cut and dry doesn’t it? In the Catholic Bible they have simply removed the second commandment for reasons so very obvious of which is part of the first, and divided the 10th commandment to keep the appearance of the traditional ten. But let’s look at it from another perspective in which does not take away from the content or meaning. Let’s look at this from the perspective of sin. What is the sin associated with the Commandment?

# 1, Sin, Worship of another God other than THEE God.
#2, The sin is the same as #1, be it a false God, wrong God or one made with our hands it is the same and therefore constitutes One commandment given in 3 parts.
# 3 Sin, Taking the Lords Name in Vain. Not cursing which is one of the dumbest thing I have heard, but using the Lords name to get gain.
# 4. Sin, Not Remembering the Sabbath.
# 5 Sin, Not glorifying thy Father and thy Mother ABOVE.
#6 Sin, Shedding of “Innocent” blood.
#7 Sin, Adultery, Giving your love to another who has no right to it, it has nothing to do with sex.
#8 Sin, Stealing, taking what does not belong to you.
#9 Sin, Bearing False witness of which you were no witness to.
#10 Sin, Coveting that which does not belong to you, which is given in 2 parts.

Number one and two are part of the same commandment.  Having no other God before him includes every form of God out there whether false, graven image, or the wrong God.

I have heard some argue that they are two separate commandments because each starts with “Thou Shalt Not” and if this is the case are we saying Verse 5 above is a new and separate commandment? Are we saying those which do not have “Thou Shalt Not” preceding them are not commandments? It is suspect by me that the first Commandment is a creation of man long ago as the 2nd covers the same, and the purpose of this creation was to eventually eliminate the second part to justify themselves and leaving the first in its place.

Now I don’t know what school you went to, But I was taught that Jesus Christ is a God, part of the Godhead, and that our Father put him before himself, of his own doing, as a Savior to the world who agreed to give the glory to his Father, and that we do, be it by prayer, ordinances, covenants etc, done in the name of Jesus Christ. If this isn’t putting a God Before God the Father I don’t know what is, so is our Father a Hypocrite or is it more likely that someone didn’t think this through? If the first commandment as we know it were from God, what Gods was he referring to?

We know there are other Gods out there who have their own creations but we have never been taught of them other than their existence or come to know any of them in any way whatsoever, and if you made the choice to worship one of these Gods you know nothing about, do you think they would in anyway acknowledge you, being a true God? So if our God is the creator of this so called first commandment, what would he have meant? Well the only Gods left are false Gods, creations of our minds and are usually manifest by those who create them in the form of Statues, Idols and the creations of their hands and is this not covered in what we know as the second commandment? The first commandment is pointless unless you needed a scapegoat. What we know as the first commandment is a fabrication of man in ancient times; it is not needed and does not change the fact that we should have no other false God before him or what we know as the Trinity.

There are only nine commandments and why have I brought this up? The reason is to give credibility to the Los Lunas Stone in the following section in that it does not have mistakes as so many supposed experts and students of Hebrew have said, it is THEM who is in error and mistaken not the scribe of the stone and I intend to show you this is true which hopefully in the end we will have just one more evidence of ancient Hebrew in the Western regions and to show that someone in the past knew what the scholars of today do not. And there is another reason which will shortly come, the Puerco River Glyph.

The Los Lunas Stone

Los Lunas Stone as it appeared before someone
recently got offended

The Los Lunas Decalogue Stone is said to have been originally discovered in the 1880’s but not officially until it was shown to Frank C Hibben an archaeologist and anthropologist of New Mexico, the very archaeologist who wrote the document called Frozen Muck which I included in the book Nephite North. It is said that it was heavily covered in Lichen and patina when Hibben first saw it; many have discredited the find as a hoax of course because of things such as the repeated cleaning of it and re scratching of the characters and chalking for photos, but more so because of the so called Mistakes and errors found within the text that according to the so called experts, would not have been made. I would agree 100% that a Levitical Scribe or a scribe with knowledge of the Paleo Hebrew would not have made the so called mistakes and errors pointed out. The difference is, I don’t think the scribe made any mistake and it is those who think they have a clear understanding of the Paleo Hebrew or Hebrew who is in error, and those who attempted to change the content.

“The archaeologist Ken Feder points out that “the flat face of the stone shows a very sharp, crisp inscription...”. His main concern however is the lack of any archaeological context. He argues that to get to the location of the stone would have required whoever inscribed it to have “stopped along the way. Encamped, eaten food, broken things, disposed of trash, performed rituals, and so on. And those actions should have left a trail of physical archaeological evidence across the greater American Southwest, discovery of which would undeniably prove the existence of foreigners in New Mexico in antiquity with a demonstrably ancient Hebrew material culture...” and states that “There are no pre-Columbian ancient Hebrew settlements, no sites containing the everyday detritus of a band of ancient Hebrews, nothing that even a cursory knowledge of how the archaeological record forms would demand there would be. From an archaeological standpoint, that’s plainly impossible.”

Wow, I couldn’t even begin to show the blindness of this man, No Hebrew settlements? Does this man read or just listen to all he was taught by his peers? So who were these Indians with more knowledge of the Hebrew ways than anyone ever expected and documented by dozens of the earliest explorers long before Feder’s G G Great Grand Father was even a thought. Encamped, eaten food, etc…? And of the 50 million acres surrounding the site Mr. Feder has personally search all of it? Didn’t anyone show him the ruins on the hill above? If this was the landing place of a certain band of Hebrews by a sea faring ship how are we going to find their trash along the way? What kind of trash should we be looking for? Evian plastic bottles? Forgive me but, Ignorance is no proof of Intelligence…

One only need take a close look to see that whoever the scribe was, he had knowledge that the supposed experts of today do not have. For this reason I am going to talk about the supposed commandment # 5 Thou Shalt Honor thy Mother and Father. In a video that my good friend Alan sent to me, concerning the Los Lunas stone, a student of Hebrew points out a few “mistakes” according to him but never really expounds upon what exactly the mistake is except for the 5th commandment. When he is asked what it actually says he struggles trying to tell us what it Should say until the host of the video impatiently asks him again, specifically what it actually says. With this the student of Hebrew again struggles and says, it says Honor thy Father and thy Mother…. ABOVE!

When I heard this I knew that our understanding of the scriptures for near 2000 years is what is in error. At this time I would point out one other mistake which has existed for a very long time, the words are not Honor your, it is Glorify you. In other words, YOU glorify Father and Mother above. Why do men always suppose they know more about the ancient writings than those who wrote them? Since when would our Father instruct us to give glory to another man, before God? Does this not violate the 1st commandment? It is what it is…. Now the problem is, who is our Mother above, and did the ancients know her? Why don’t we? The reasons I have been given my whole life just make no sense, and I am sure that many will come to my rescue to save me from my fallen state and explain to me what the scripture “really mean.

My friend and I talked about this for some time, the question was brought, if the scripture meant honor OR glorify thy earthly father and mother then we have a problem. Now my Father has also instructed me by way of commandment to forsake ALL evil, so, hypothetically speaking if my earthly father was a foul dishonest man, a thief, a murderer and oppressor of the poor and the week, and I did not honor him because of his evils, am I now guilty of the sin of Commandment #5? I don’t think so. And if I did Honor or Glorify him, in other words, worship him or give glory to him, am I now guilty of commandment #1?  In looking at the meaning of the word Honor or Glorify among the many implicating words which describe it, is to Worship. Although this seemed very convincing, it wasn’t completed for me until I stumbled upon a couple of scriptures from the lips of Christ himself that I knew the ancient scribe who carved the Los Lunas Stone was not only authentic, but knew more about Paleo Hebrew and his scriptures than the so called experts of today.

In the following Jesus shows the Pharisees and scribes the error of their ways without telling them what it actually means. He shows them by their own understanding they contradict themselves but it is the fact that Jesus himself says in the following, God Commanded.

Matthew 15:4
 4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

Interestingly enough the Greek translation for the above does not say Honor thy father and mother, it says, Be valuing THE Father and Mother. And again he says the same basic thing in Mark 7:10, the point being, what kind of God would condemn me to death for worshiping a false God, putting another God before him? What kind of God would put me to death for cursing an earthly father or mother whether I had reason or not? I know the answer, do you? This doesn’t sound like a God I want to worship.

God is a title, not a name, and my God encompasses my Father and Mother above and including my Lord and Savior. I have no doubt that My Father above wants me to Honor him, and glorify him as in worship, and my Mother in Heaven also who are among the only ones who are “Honorable” PERIOD. Are we here to give glory to our earthly parents?

The scribe who wrote the inscription of the Los Lunas Panel knew exactly what he wrote. Mistakes are made with pens and by the quick action of them, and lack of knowledge, the mistakes the scribe is accused of simply do not occur, do they mean for me to believe the scribe carved the entire row of characters chiseling away stepping back and blowing off the dust and then said OOPS?..  I don’t think so. However I could admit the scribe could have made one mistake in that he began to write the second part of the first commandment, or was it a mistake? And the scribe supposedly had to “Insert” the missing potion between the first and second line of the inscription? Hmmm, something stinks here…

It is said that the earliest known use of an insertion mark or caret is 1681, my question is, why didn’t anyone question the one found in 1681? Is its use in the Los Lunas stone evidence of the very earliest known use of the Caret? Evidence of a fraud, or evidence of someone in recent years attempting to change what an original inscription said because it did not fit their agenda or to render it a hoax and not understanding that the use of the Caret is likely a modern invention?  Is it possible that “Thou Shalt have no other God before me” was added in at a modern date as it was not necessary to even be a part of the commandment  as the commandment would have been complete without it. It is my opinion that the second line was added by someone in modern times, likely some Spaniard of the Catholic Faith who adhered to words of an altered Bible.

If you look close at the method of application of the glyphs there is a difference in style for a lack of better words, between the 2nd line and the rest of the panel, look closely at the Lamed symbol. In the entire panel all of the Lamed symbols either join at the point of the vertical and horizontal line, or a small gap is left BELOW the vertical line and ABOVE the horizontal. In the second line suspect of being added at a more modern date, the gap is not below the vertical line, but to the side in two of the three occurrences. This difference implies a different author. Now why would someone do this? Interestingly enough two of the mistakes mentioned would have been done by the author of the added line. Another interesting observance is, that some time in 2007, someone visited the site with a portable grinder and removed the first line, why only the first line? I hate to point this out to those responsible but isn’t this like tearing the pages from the scriptures so that it no longer applies? Regardless, it did not change a thing. One often meets their destiny on the road they take to avoid it.

It is my opinion due to common sense, if I approached a rock face with the intent to scribe something as important as the commandments and not knowing how exactly it was going to fit on the rock, I would not just sit down and start chiseling away. I would however plan what I was going to do and I would grab some charcoal from one of those nonexistent Hebrew debris piles, and lay the whole thing out first, then chisel the lines, do you think the scribe might have noticed mistakes if there were any? The following picture is what I truly believe the panel once looked like before someone got to it in the ancient past and took offense because it did not matched their altered Bible, or saw the threat of exposing a little plot; Manifest Destiny takes upon new meaning.

The Los Lunas Stone BEFORE anyone in the past got offended

I am Jehovah Elohim your God who has brought you out of the land of Egypt from the house of slaves. (1) You shall not make idols. (2) You shall not use the name Jehovah in vein. (3) Remember the day of the Sabbath and keep it Holy.
(4) Honor Father and Mother above that your days will be long on the earth that Jehovah Elohim your God has given you. (5) You must not murder, (6) you must not commit adultery, (7) you must not steal, (8) you must not give false testimony, (9) you must not covet your neighbors wife, nor that which he has.

Who would know more about the message inscribed on the stone? An ancient scribe or today’s so called experts? It is because of the things described previously that tells me this panel was inscribed some time prior to the creation of Catholicism or even possibly BC times. Was there a 10th Commandment? We may never know but from the perspective of those who inscribed the Los Lunas stone, there were 9, interestingly enough, according to those who inscribed the stone in the next chapter, there were only 9 as well.

It says what it says, and means what it means; it is what it is… It was because of the following chapter that caused me to reevaluate the Los Lunas Stone. The possibilities are many, but I guess no one is willing to look at the other possible perspectives. If there are mistakes in the Los Lunas inscription, it is from modern man, just my two cents. Continued in...
