I came across these books after listening to Tom Horn. In the preface it is written that these are considered books of fiction because they describe a period from far down history lane, but it says that it helped shape the Bible, Coran and Talmud. My question is why are these books of fiction and not the Genesis books?
I believe they should be included in The Bible because it clarifies a lot of things. The most important is Why was Adam and Eve thrown out of Eden and why does Lucifer hates us.
In these books one might see and feel the sorrow and rely understand how it is to loose the chance to sand in God’s presence. How far we are, as a species from our Father, our Creator.
We can also understand that Lucifer/Satan has promised to Adam and Eve the same thing the technocrats and illuminated elites of our time have been promised: eternal life and god like powers. We don’t know what the forbidden fruit metaphor stands for but we do know what we are promised today: the dream of singularity.
But it is all a lie.
We already posses immortality in the spiritual realm through our soul and in the material realm through our kids and epigenetics and genetic memories which we say intuition and reflex in relation to a situation that we haven’t encountered before, but our ancestors did.
Our soul can reach one of the two places: Heaven and Hell.
In order to be in Heaven, we have to have a soul as clean as possible, because this is what it takes to be in God’s presence. Now we know through the New Testament that only through Jesus we can achieve this level of soul cleanliness because only through Him our sins are forgiven. And no man can forgive our sins in God’s name only Jesus, because He is the son of God and through Him we can reach the Father.
Now what does it takes to be forgiven?
- Don’t do the same sins/mistakes over and over again, because this means you have not been truly repenting
- Forgive everyone who has wronged you, over and over again, be kind and help each other. As this is the meaning of life: love, forgiveness and understanding
- Feed the starving
- Give to the poor and needy
- Dress the ones who are naked
What does it take to go to Hell? Do the opposite. Easy …right?
Here is part of the story, from the “Life of Adam and Eve” on why the devil despise us and basically wants to end us:
And eighteen days passed by; then Satan was wroth and transformed himself into the brightness of angels, and went away to the river Tigris to Eve, and found her weeping, and the devil himself pretended to grieve with her, and he began to weep and said to her ‘Come out of the river and lament no more. Cease now from sorrow and moans. Why art thou anxious and thy husband Adam? The Lord God hath heard your groaning and hath accepted your penitence, and all we angels have entreated on your behalf, and made supplication to the Lord; and he hath sent me to bring you out of the water and give you the nourishment which you had in paradise, and for which you are crying out. Now come out of the water and I will conduct you to the place where your victual hath been made ready.’
But Eve heard and believed and went out of the water of the river, and her flesh was (trembling) like grass, from the chill of the water. And when she had gone out, she fell on the earth and the devil raised her up and led her to Adam. But when Adam had seen her and the devil with her, he wept and cried aloud and said: ‘O Eve, Eve, where is the labour of thy penitence? How hast thou been again ensnared by our adversary, by whose means we have been estranged from our abode in paradise and spiritual joy?’
And when she heard this, Eve understood that (it was) the devil (who) had persuaded her to go out of the river; and she fell on her face on the earth and her sorrow and groaning and wailing was redoubled. And she cried out and said: ‘Woe unto thee, thou devil. Why dost thou attack us for no cause? What hast thou to do with us? What have we done to thee? for thou pursuest us with craft? Or why doth thy malice assail us? Have we taken away thy glory and caused thee to be without honour? Why dost thou harry us, thou enemy (and persecute us) to the death in wickedness and envy?’
And with a heavy sigh, the devil spake: ‘O Adam! all my hostility, envy, and sorrow is for thee, since it is for thee that I have been expelled from my glory, which I possessed in the heavens in the midst of the angels and for thee was I cast out in the earth.’ Adam answered, ‘What dost thou tell me? What have I done to thee or what is my fault against thee? Seeing that thou hast received no harm or injury from us, why dost thou pursue us?’
The devil replied, ‘Adam, what dost thou tell me? It is for thy sake that I have been hurled from that place. When thou wast formed, I was hurled out of the presence of God and banished from the company of the angels. When God blew into thee the breath of life and thy face and likeness was made in the image of God, Michael also brought thee and made (us) worship thee in the sight of God; and God the Lord spake: Here is Adam. I have made thee in our image and likeness.’
And Michael went out and called all the angels saying: ‘Worship the image of God as the Lord God hath commanded.’ And Michael himself worshipped first; then he called me and said: ‘Worship the image of God the Lord.’ And I answered, ‘I have no (need) to worship Adam.’ And since Michael kept urging me to worship, I said to him, ‘Why dost thou urge me? I will not worship an inferior and younger being (than I). I am his senior in the Creation, before he was made was I already made. It is his duty to worship me.’
When the angels who were under me heard this, they refused to worship him. And Michael saith, ‘Worship the image of God, but if thou wilt not worship him, the Lord God will be wrath with thee.’ And I said, ‘If He be wrath with me, I will set my seat above the stars of heaven and will be like the Highest.’
And God the Lord was wrath with me and banished me and my angels from our glory; and on thy account were we expelled from our abodes into this world and hurled on the earth. And straight Away we were overcome with grief, since we had been spoiled of so great glory. And we were grieved when we saw thee in such joy and luxury. And with guile I cheated thy wife and caused thee to be expelled through her (doing) from thy joy and luxury, as I have been driven out of my glory.
We don’t have to fall again for Satan’s tricks because we have the play book. We just need to regain this knowledge and apply it. Otherwise the consequences will be dire for all of us.

This books are considered by many scholars to be part of the “Pseudepigrapha“.
The “Pseudepigrapha” is a collection of historical biblical works that are considered to be fiction. Because of that stigma, this book was not included in the compilation of the Holy Bible. This book is a written history of what happened in the days of Adamand Eve after they were cast out of the garden. Although considered to be Pseudepigrapha by some, it carries significant meaning and insight into events of that time. It is doubtful that these writings could have survived all the many centuries if there were no substance to them.
These books are simply a version of an account handed down by word of mouth, from generation to generation, linking the time that the first human life was created to the time when somebody finally decided to write it down. This particular version is the work of unknown Egyptians.
The lack of historical allusion makes it difficult to precisely date the writing, however, using other Pseudepigrapha works as a reference, it was probably written a few hundred years before the birth of Christ. Parts of this version are found in the Jewish Talmud, and the Islamic Koran, showing what a vital role it played in the original literature of human wisdom. The Egyptian author wrote in Arabic, but later translations were found written in Ethiopic.
The present English translation was translated in the late 1800’s by Dr. S. C. Malan and Dr. E. Trumpp. They translated into King James English from both the Arabic version and the Ethiopic version which was then published in The Forgotten Books of Eden in 1927 by The World Publishing Company.
In 1995, the text was extracted from a copy of The Forgotten Books of Eden and converted to electronic form by Dennis Hawkins. It was then translated into more modern English by simply exchanging ‘Thou’ s for ‘You’s, ‘Art’s for ‘Are’s, and so forth. The text was then carefully re-read to ensure its integrity.
