“Boko Haram: Tohu wa-bohu”

Boko Haram: Tohu wa-bohu

Can the Afro-Asian Hausa and Hebrew languages be communicating something very profound, about the current condition of Mankind?  A couple of years ago I summarized Robert Morning Sky’s the Terra Papers I and II, and complimented the summary with my own views and personal experiences. Sitchin’s novel, The Lost Book of Enki, in addition speaks of the same “Origins of Man”.

In my summary, The Origins of Man and 666, I concluded that Mankind was not created by God but rather by one of God’s interventionists. We can refer to them as the Fallen Angels, Watchers, Archons or as Alien beings. When we speak of the Fallen Angels we can primarily refer to their leader, Satan, and when we speak of Aliens we can refer to them as Ea, Enki, Marduk and several other names mentioned in the Sumerian Tablets.

In that same summary, I referred to number 666, and sadly concluded that “Mankind” is the representation of the number, and is the “Beast” - we are the Beast, created by a satanic force, used as pawns in the perpetual war of good versus evil.

God intervened by sending the “Beast” his only Son Jesus. Jesus was and is our salvation. Jesus is Savior and Messiah to Christians and Muslims. The pre-eminent Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, nearing his own death, determined that Jesus was indeed the Saviour for the Jews as well.  So we may now conclude that Adam was the son of Satan, and Jesus is the Son of God. We are the children of Satan, redeemed by the death and resurrection of Jesus.  

In seeking and keeping our relationship with God we continue to encounter the madness and jealousy of the one who seeks to use Mankind as a dispensable bauble in the epic battle between good and evil.  

Satan has not stood idle in this tragic and perpetual divine comedy.  His army of Nephilim (the sons and daughters of the Fallen Angels given birth by the daughters of Mankind) continues to derail our relationship with God. The Nephilim are all about us. We have chosen to call them the Illuminati.

Transhumanism, as I have written many times before, will lead us to Satan’s Garden of Eden. It is where he will continue to enslave and depreciate the soul of Mankind, in his attempt to defy God. All this madness, however, is for not, as Enoch tells us Mankind will prevail, and Satan and his army Fallen Angels will be doomed to eternal Hell. Our survival has been guaranteed by God and Jesus; our enlightenment is stalled by the eternal presence and acceptance of evil.

Those we have chosen as our leaders are Satan’s disciples. They seek only to destroy us.

Boko Haram appropriately reminds humanity of the false teachings to which humanity has been subjected to since our creation, and Tohu wa-bohu reminds us that humanity is destined "once again", to vanquish into the abyss if we do not come to accept God and Jesus.

Boko Haram

The term "Boko Haram" comes from the Hausa word boko figuratively meaning "western education"……, but Hausa expert Paul Newman says it derives from a Hausa word with meanings such as "fraud" and "inauthenticity". The Arabic word haram figuratively meaning "sin" (literally, "forbidden"). Loosely translated, the name could mean "western education is sinful", which would symbolize its strong opposition to anything Western, which it sees as corrupting Muslims…………

Bargery's Hausa-English dictionary lists the use for the foreign "book", but its first definition is used in cases such as "half filling vessel with pieces of corn-stalk or sticks and placing food on top to make it appear a big present", and can refer to a sham bride, sham agreement to a comment, adulterated shea butter, sham military maneuvers, a door which isn't really closed, or a calabash that doesn't really contain anything. Most significantly, "karatun boko" refers to "any reading or education which is not connected with Islam", and "makarantar boko" is "any Government or Native Administration School or establishment where reading……….in Roman character is taught."

Dr Ahmad Murtada of the Islamic Studies Department, University of Bayero, Kano has noted in his research of the group that the name of the movement should not be understood literally from the Hausa, but rather as meaning "traversing the Western system of education is haram".


Tohu wa-bohu

Tohu wa bohu is a Biblical Hebrew term found in the Book of Genesis 1:2. Numerous interpretations of this phrase were made by various theological sources, though it is usually translated as "waste and void," "formless and empty," or "chaos and desolation." It describes the condition of the earth before God said, "Let there be light" (Gen. 1:3). Precise translation of the phrase is difficult, as only the first word, "tohu," appears to have any independent meaning.

There is evidence that the sentence “And the earth was without form and void” (tohu v’bohu) indicates destruction, not simply primitive creation. This phrase is rendered more strongly elsewhere. For example, the Chaldee Version has “But the earth had become desert and empty,” the Septuagint has “But the earth had become unfurnished and empty,” and the Aramaic has “And the earth had 
become ruined and uninhabited.

"Tohu" is used 20 times in the Hebrew Bible and is used to mean "vain" or "waste”.  "Bohu" appears only three times in the Hebrew Bible (Gen 1:2; Isa. 34:11; Jer. 4:23) -- always together with "tohu" and always quoting Genesis 1:2.  Rabbi Judah taught Akiva's theories of Tohu and Bohu, describing Tohu as a green line encompassing the world from which darkness emanates, and Bohu as the slimy mass of stones sunk in the primordial abyss from which all water springs forth. Tohu and Bohu were also regarded as two of the 10 fundamental elements which God used to outline the basic structure of the known universe.

Genesis 1:2, original Hebrew (Westminster Leningrad Codex

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

Genesis 1:2, English translation (New International Version)[5]

In modern French, "tohu-bohu" is used as an idiom for "confusion" or "commotion". Also in colloquial German, "Tohuwabohu" means "great confusion"
