In the year 33 AD the people of the New World began to eagerly await the sign which had been given by Matthias the Elamite that there should darkness for three days over all the land. In the year 34 a terrible storm came with such thunder that it shook the earth.

The city of Mukilteo caught on fire. The city of Alki slid into the sea. A volcano erupted upriver from the city of Enumclaw until the city was covered by a wall of mud and trees and hot water.

Earthquakes leveled many other cities. Tornadoes carried many people away to parts unknown. Boulders were cracked in two. Roads were broken up, buildings toppled, and many people were killed.

All of these things happened in the space of three hours. Then it was dark for three days, with no sun nor moon nor stars.

And a great voice was heard in the darkness taking credit for burning Mukilteo and drowning Alki and covering Enumclaw with earth to hide their iniquities from his face.

The voice also mentioned causing the city of Tumwater to be swallowed up by the earth and a number of other cities to be covered by water. Other towns the voice destroyed with fire from heaven like Sodom and Gomorrah.

Everyone who was still alive, the voice said, was spared because they were more righteous than those cities. The voice then asked if the people would come to him and be blessed.

Who was this person who destroyed every major city around the Whulge, and then asked the survivors to be his pal? I am Yeshua Bat-El, the sole offspring of El Shaddai.

Yeshua had stepped things up a bit. Back in Judea he called some people vipers and white-washed sepulchres, and maybe turned over some tables and threw some moneychangers out of the temple with his makeshift whip, but that was the extent of his violence.

Yeshua was introduced by the voice of El Shaddai: Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name--hear ye him. Then Yeshua appeared out of nowhere in a white robe and stood in the midst of the crowd.

Yeshua spoke against outward shows of piety which was more about looking good to others rather than doing good. He commanded that his followers not use prayers which were simple repetition, because there was no passion in it.

Some of his teachings were very good practical advice, such as the one about not worrying. Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

This was perfectly in accord with philosophical Taoism. Worrying about one's mortality, for instance, won't make one's life longer and might even make it shorter through stress. Worrying is actually borrowing stress from the future and jamming it all into the present, in the same way a debt borrows earning power from the future so you could apply it today.

Even though everyone in the crowd believed he was the Son of God who was prophesied from old and fell to the ground, Yeshua bade them to arise, come forth, and put their hands into the holes left in his body from the crucifixion, as though everyone there was a Doubting Thomas. But even Doubting Thomas didn't need to put his hands into Yeshua, instead, humbled, he fell to the ground in worship and said, My Lord and My God. Nevertheless, every single member of the crowd did come forward and verify the marks of Bat-El's execution as they were commanded.

Then Yeshua said, Rosh come forth! which was like standing in a crowd of a million 20th Century Americans and saying John Smith come forth! But the correct Rosh came forward, kissed Yeshua' feet, and Yeshua gave him the power to baptize. And then Yeshua called an unspecified number of others to be certified for performing baptisms as well.

He gave to Rosh and others that he called the power to baptize the people, using the words: Having authority given me of Yeshua Bat-El, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. Then they were to be immersed in the water, and come out of the water again.

There were to be no disputes about his doctrine, he said, because contention is of Belial.

It was Yeshua' doctrine that actions which stir men to anger must be done away with. And Yeshua said his doctrine came from the Father himself, El Shaddai. Repentance from sin must accompany baptism. Salvation depended on believing in Yeshua and being baptized. Anyone who did not believe in Yeshua and was not baptized would be damned. The ones who would follow Yeshua must be reconciled with one's brother before asking to be reconciled with Bat-El.

Yeshua said, Do not look on a woman with lust. Do not divorce your wife except on grounds of unfaithfulness. Do not swear oaths. Do not resist evil. When compelled to make a plaintiff whole in a civil suit, make more than full restitution. When pressed into labor, do twice the work that is compelled. Do not turn away anyone who asks to borrow money. Love your enemies.

He spoke against religious pride. Do not make a public display of almsgiving. Do not make a public display of prayer or use vain repetition. Do not visibly emphasize your misery when fasting. Do not judge. Ask God for all things through prayer with faith. Do not follow after false prophets.

Yeshua said all his words must be declared to the ends of the earth.

Ye shall call the church in my name. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house. Never cease to pray in your hearts. Suffer not any one knowingly to partake of my flesh and blood unworthily. Ye shall meet together oft; and ye shall not forbid any man from coming unto you when ye shall meet together, but suffer them that they may come unto you and forbid them not. Always pray unto the Father in my name.

And after Yeshua had spoken these words, and healed many hurts, he gathered together twelve disciples, and instructed them further. Then he departed from world, but he did not abandon it, for the Earth and everything in it had been given to Bat-El by El Shaddai.

In the years 34 and 35 the disciples of Yeshua formed churches throughout the Whulge. And if someone truly repented of their sins, they were baptized in the name of Yeshua. By the year 36 all of the Elamites and Roshites were in the Church of Yeshua Bat-El. There were no more wars of even arguments between them. And they shared all their property.

After the year 100 AD, all the original disciples of Yeshua had died, but new disciples were ordained to replace them. And there were no envyings, nor strifes, nor tumults, nor whoredoms, nor lyings, nor murders, nor any manner of lasciviousness, no robbers, nor murderers, neither were there Elamites, nor any manner of -ites.

A whole generation came and went, over the course of more than a century, and there was no contention in the land. The man named Rosh who recorded the coming of Yeshua to America died, and the keeping of the Codex and Artifact passed to his son Rumjal. And there was still peace in the land, but as the century of peace went on, a small group of people began to call themselves Elamites again.

After that, the people began to get rich, and wear expensive clothing and jewelry, and divide themselves into rich and poor, and the communist sharing of private property came to an end. Then they formed churches which were essentially businesses for the purpose of gaining profits.

One of these churches began to persecute members of the True Church of Bat-El, casting them into prison, but the prison then broke in two. They did smite upon the people of Yeshua, but the people of Yeshua did not smite again.

In the year 231 AD the non-Elamites began to call themselves Roshites again. But the Roshites became mostly wicked too, until only a tiny remnant still believed in Yeshua. And it came to pass that when three hundred years had passed away, both the people of Rosh and the Elamites had become exceedingly wicked like one unto another. So despite God's best efforts, even after allowing two generations to die out as a buffer between the old warring factions and the new, and even after sending the Son to establish a utopia in America, the dreary old controversy between the Elamites and Roshites reared up once again. Except this time the Roshites were just as wicked as the Elamites, and the target of their wrath became a mere handful of faithful men who went into hiding.

The Codex of Lael and the Artifact ball (or Director) passed down from father to son until it rested in the safekeeping of one Imamiah, who had a young son named Gadreel.

When Gadreel was eleven, his father took him north to the lands bordering the Whulge. Gadreel found that land to be completely covered with houses and people. He witnessed a war between the Roshites and Elamites at High Point.

The Elamites were beaten by a force of three thousand Roshites, then they withdrew and there was peace for four years. But there was so much wickedess among the Roshites that Yeshua ordered a recall of his disciples, and their work of miraculous healing came to an end. Gadreel himself wanted to become a preacher, but a certain visiting nephil told him to remain silent due to the willful rebellion of the Roshites.

When war came again between the Roshites and Elamites in 327 AD, Gadreel was appointed the leader of their armies because he was large in stature, despite being only sixteen years old. But the Elamite armies were so great that Gadreel's armies would not fight, and they began a retreat toward the north. There they took possession of the city of Tulalip and fortified it to defend against the Elamites. But it was still not enough, and they were driven by their enemies out of the city.

The Roshites were pursued by the Elamites to the city of Lummi before Gadreel could get them to stop and make another stand. After another defeat the Roshites were again hunted until they came northward to the land of Sumas and fortified the city there. Gadreel inspired the people to at last stand boldly and fight for their wives and children and hearth and home. It seemed to work, they did not shrink back when the Elamites attacked Sumas.

Gadreel's army of three thousand defeated an Elamite army of five thousand. This gave them a brief respite, and Gadreel's army fled east into the foothills, and made their way south again toward the Whulge by company strength. During this time, Gadreel took a wife from among his people and fathered a son named Araphiel. But as the years wore on, the Elamites found the forces of Gadreel were spread too thin trying to defend the central lands on the Whulge and defeated them in detail.

In a surprise epistle to Gadreel's son Araphiel, which came to him through the agency of a nephilim visiting from the Land We Know, Gadreel reported that he was still alive, but the Elamites were victorious in battle, and a number of leading Roshites had been slain. Gadreel feared that the Elamites would utterly destroy his people. For the Elamites took many prisoners in the battle. They slew all the men, they fed to the women the flesh of their husbands and they fed the children the flesh of their fathers, and gave them almost no water. Still, these atrocities paled in comparison to those of some of the Roshites in Gadreel's army, who availed themselves of the daughters of the Elamites, tortured them to death, and ate their flesh.

In this final communication Gadreel asked his son, rhetorically, how El Shaddai could be expected to withhold judgment from such a people. He especially grieved for the widows and their daughters in Alki, who were starving because both armies carried away most of the food. And Gadreel could do nothing for them or his father, because the army of the Elamites was between him and that city.

In 421 AD Araphiel wrote a few more things before placing the Codex of Lael inside the Artifact ball, as he had been instructed by the nephilim who delivered his father's epistle. Then the white ball closed like a clam shell and Araphiel fell silent. The last of the Roshites passed away, and the Elamites reigned victorious.

But the Artifact ball remained in position, held securely by two poles between four pillars of stone on the summit of End Dome Hill. The Elamites feared to go near it. It was said the hill was haunted by evil spirits, and no one drew near the summit for centuries. Even animals learned to stay away from the hilltop, for the Artifact could defend itself by ejecting a sharp needle whenever a creature tried to nuzzle it or brush against it.
