Names of idols "god"

There are many idols being called upon in the religions of the world and one of the chief idols being worshiped is "god" of the Babylonians. The deception that keeps the Babylonian deity "god" being worshiped is the misconception that the word "god" is just an English word for "deity" when in fact it etymologically originates from one of the idols of the Babylonians and Canaanites in the Hebrew records.

 

Here is some world information on the Etymology of the word firstly: 

The Encyclopedia American (1945 Edition) has this definition for the topic of "GOD";

"GOD (god) Common Teutonic word for personal object of religious worship, formally applicable to superhuman beings of heathen myth:  on conversion of Teutonic races to Christianity, term as applied to Supreme Being."

under God: See Gad

under Gad: Apart from Gad, the son of Ya'aqob, there was another "Gad". The astrologers of Babel called Jupiter (Zues) by the name "Gad". He was also well know among the Canaanites (Kena'anites) where his name was often coupled with Ba'al, Ba'al Gad, which according to Massoretic vowel pointing in the Book of Yehoshua is pronounced Ba'al God. This same name is discovered in the ancient Germanic languages as Gott, Goda, Gode, God, Gud, Gade. In addition, searching further back into its Indo-Germanic (Indo-European) roots, we find that it traces back to the word GHODH, which means "union," even "sexual union". No wonder the meaning is still evident in the Dutch and German gade. It is also not difficult to see it in the English "gadly" and "gadding about."

 

  • The Canaanites worshiped "god" by evidence of the name of one of their cities that were conquered called "Baal gad." 

Joshua 11:17

[17]Even from the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir, even unto Baalgad H1171 in the valley of

Lebanon under mount Hermon: and all their kings he took, and smote them, and slew them.

Definition: 

H1171

בּעל גּד :Original

Transliteration: ba‛al gâd (Yiddish)

Phonetic: bah'-al gawd (Yiddish) 

  • (The phonetic is actually pronounced "gawd" which is from the Yiddish speakers Germanic background. The Germanic languages have also had a major influence on the English language and "god" in English is etymologically derived from German, Yiddish roots by evidence of the pronunciation of the word. .  English speakers are calling on this idol of the Canaanites when they say "god" in reference to the Creator or other deities or when one applies any generic title of reverence to the deity "god" over one's self. Since 'god' is the actual name of a deity, when one uses the word in reference to whom one worships and prays to, it is idol worship and applying titles of reverence like "lord, father, master" to "god" is the reverence of an idol even though it is unknowingly. Now in truth, the word גד is not calling on an idol when it is not being used in reference to a deity because it is also a regular word in the Hebrew language which can mean troop among other meanings and is the  name of one of one of the 12 Patriarchs, Gad H1410. {Gen 30:11} Yet when one uses the word גד H1408/H1409 in reference to deities it is an idol.)

BDB Definition: Baal-gad = " lord of fortune

a city noted for Baal-worship, located at the most northern or northwestern point to which Joshua's victories extended

Origin: from H1168 and H1409

  • (the word בּעל H1168 can be translated to "lord"  in English among other words, but the word lord in itself is is not the name of an idol from its etymology. Its just a translation of one of the the few meanings of the word בּעל H1168 . בּעל H1168  is a generic word when not used in reference to an idol like the name of one of the sons of Reuben,{I Chron 5:5} but when speaking of deities it is the name of an idol of the Canaanites which can be found throughout the old testament.)

Strong's Definition: From H1168and H1409; Baal of Fortune ; Baal Gad, a place in Syria: -

Baal-gad.

H1409

גּד :Original

Transliteration: gâd (Yiddish)

Phonetic: gawd (Yiddish)

BDB Definition:

fortune, good fortune

Origin: from H1464 (in the sense of distributing); fortune: - troop.

This word H1409  is the same as H1408 which confirms that "god" is a Babylonian deity.

H1408

גּד :Original

Transliteration: gad (Yiddish)

Phonetic: gad (Yiddish)

BDB Definition: Gad = "deity of fortune"

a Babylonian deity

Origin: a variation of H1409

Strong's Definition: A variation of H1409; Fortune, a Babylonian deity: - that troop.

The scriptures confirm that "גד "H1408 pronounced "god/gawd" and Fortune are idols that were worshiped by the unrighteous, even of Israel. In Isaiah 65:11, "גד" was worshiped by the unbelievers.

1611 KJVA Bible:

Isaiah 65:11

[11]But ye are they that forsake Ahayah, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for

under God: See Gad

under Gad: Apart from Gad, the son of Ya'aqob, there was another "Gad". The astrologers of Babel called Jupiter (Zues) by the name "Gad". He was also well know among the Canaanites (Kena'anites) where his name was often coupled with Ba'al, Ba'al Gad, which according to Massoretic vowel pointing in the Book of Yehoshua is pronounced Ba'al God.

No wonder the meaning is still evident in the Dutch and German gade. It is also not difficult to see it in the English "gadly" and "gadding about."

As you have seen, The English word "god" comes from Germanic etymological roots and does not just mean "deity" but is from the ancient worship of "superhuman beings of heathen myth" among the Germans as "god", " Baal Gad(pronounced god)" among the Canaanites, and "Gad, the deity of Fortune" among the Babylonians (Chaldean language) which the Israelites also fell in idolatry to as well. The word "גד" pronounced "god/gawd/gode" is the same spirit as Jupiter of the Romans and Zeus of the Greeks. The Greeks & Romans  have merely placed another name on their deity to have men worship Satan unknowingly today. "Gad (pronounced god)" also has a counterpart, Meni, which is a female deity of "Fate, Fortune and Destiny". The Romans knew Meni as "Juno Moneta," the female deity of currency, who was Jupiter's wife, while the Greeks had Zeus and Hera. Through the scriptures, one can see that the worship of these idols are present today through the philosophy of Fortune, Fate, Luck and Destiny  in the Modern world.  Also, Jupiter and Juno (Rome) or Zeus and Hera (Greeks) or God and Money/Fortune (America) all stem from the Babylonian deities "Gad (pronounced god) and Meni." 

Evil spirits are called by many names among the nations, so make no marvel that there are different names for the same evil spirit to this day. 

Testament of Solomon 58

And I Solomon did as she enjoined me, and rrestrained myself because of the wisdom dwelling in me in order that I might hear of her deeds, and reprehend them, and manifest them to men. And I sat down, and said to the demon: "What art thou?" And she said: "I am called among men Obizuth; .........For I am a fierce spirit of myriad names and many shapes."

Testament of Solomon 64

And there came before my face another spirit, as it were a woman in he form she had. But on her shoulders she had two other heads with hands. And I asked her, and said: "Tell me, who art thou?" And she said to me: "I am Enepsigos, and who also have a myriad of names."

  • The supposed English word "god" is the calling on of the Babylonian idol and a transgression of the law.

Exo 23:13  

And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other alahayims, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

Please refer to the "Bantu is Hebrew" document #121-124  for edification on the Hebrew word H410 Ala for "deity" or H430 Alahayim for "deities." Know of a surety also that god is not merely a transliteration of the Hebrew word H410 אל because אל is א-A ל-La, not ג-Go ד-D.
