The Propulsion system of The Mercaba (The heavenly Chariot)

I guess most AA-enthusiasts (and others) already have read about the Mercaba (The heavenly Chariot). If not you should read, and find out. If you have read about it, you already know it was an ancient alien spaceship from biblical time.

As the aliens probably had many such spaceships, different stories and descriptions are often mixed in the multitude of texts. Thus we do not know which spaceship the Zohar is describing and which of them it refers to as the Mercaba (or Shekinah). The earliest known spaceship those ancient texts are making attempts to describe are the one that was located in the pre-flood , garden of Eden (described in the second book of enoch). However, the use of the word shekinah and Mercaba seems to have been first introduced in post flood stories, and thus it is perhaps safe to suggest that these descriptions belonged to different spaceships.

All ancient texts seems however to have one thing in common. They all refers to the different sections aboard all these spaceships as ‘the seven heavens’ , or (in the Zohar) as the ‘seven spheres’.

I am however not going to write about the seven heavens in this article. Instead I am going to give a description of the propulsion system, or the engines or whatever it seems to be that the aliens used to power their spaceship with.

In the book called The Zohar ( Beresh‍ith to Lekh Lekha) , the propulsion system that powered the Mercaba (The heavenly Chariot) are described in great details. Even though it contains words that cannot fully be translated and words that needs to be interpreted in the light of todays knowledge, the text are still quite ‘understandable’. I have gone through the entire description , and filtered out most of the religious phrases as well as changing many words and sentences , trying to give it a more modern setting. I have also reconstructed the entire description and organized the descriptions of the various components into the sections they seems to belong to.

I must however admit that I might have made some mistakes here and there as I have moved and changed a lot from the original descriptions and tried to piece things together where I think they belong. Still I would claim that this description I here provide is not far from it’s origin descriptions. However. I will strongly advice those of you who are interested in this kind of stuff , to study the original description as provided in the link. I would also like to remind you folks, that I do not claim to understand the description fully (not by a long shot), and I would thus be grateful if someone could contribute with explanations to this complex system.

As far as I have understood, some six components in this propulsion system seems to be vital and play together. These are:

The Saphira and The Lebanah
The Ophanims
The lofty column of light
The Seraphims
The Nogah
The Hayoth

Saphira and Lebanah

Aboard the heavenly Chariot (in the lower sections), there is a device named Saphira whose radiant form is white and in its brilliancy like unto the precious sapphire stone. The light of this device sendeth forth rays in two directions, glittering and flashing like sparks from a candle, and though apparently separate and distinct, yet they are but emanations and scintillations of the one divine light. This device Saphira, is stationed on the right side in this section, whilst on the left is stationed another (similar) device whose color is red and named Lebanah. The rays of these two devices become blended and mingled together, the red absorbing the white.

The four Ophanims

From the emanations of the two devices called, Saphira and Lebanah, are created a power source, which powers those devices that are called the Ophanims. The appearance of these Ophanims are like unto the color of Beryl, and they can move forward and return as the appearance of flashing lightning. When the different rays becomes united and blended with another and thus gives power to the Ophanims, there flashes forth above the four Ophanims a great white and dazzling light, each of whom takes the form of a lion with the wings of an eagle which furthermore controls a multitude of subordinate devices like unto themselves.

These Ophanims controls the wheels of the heavenly Mercaba, or chariot, by whom it is moved in four directions. In each wheel there appear three different colors of the supreme light, twelve colors altogether. These Ophanims also constitute the four mystic beings of the Heavenly Chariot having the forms of a man, a lion, an ox and an eagle, with faces turned to the four cardinal points and each with its own peculiar color. In three of these, the human countenance is so prominent, that the lion resembles a lion man and so with the two others, that are termed the eagle man and the ox man.

In proportion as these Ophanim approach and come into contact with one another, so do their colors become fused and blended. The one with the other. When this occurs their forms become visible within each other. When the power beam is seen beaming within the four Ophanims, each of the wheels begin moving and a sweet and harmonious sound is heard from them. The wheel belonging to the East, in moving in that direction becomes hampered by the other three, turning each in their own direction. This occurs alike with the other wheels of the North, South and West.

The lofty column of light

Only when the individual motions of the wheels are equilibrated, can the Heavenly chariot be raised and turned in any direction by the mystical Column of light that unites the higher and lower spheres.

The Seraphims

The Seraphims have six wings . They consume and they are therefore termed "Consumers." These seraphims are under the control of the captain of the Chariot. When the wheels of the Mercaba or the heavenly chariot begin moving, they fall back and many of them are consumed in their own flames, but eventually they are resuscitated and, gaining their pristine state, take refuge beneath the wing of the eagle, (one of the four living creatures surrounding the chariot).

The Nogah

Inside the chariot there is yet another device called the Nogah (splendor), whose aura is of the most absolute whiteness and purity and without a shade of color, by reason of which it takes its name. The Nogah is the main power source that everything else are dependent on. It is altogether invisible to the lower spheres except when tempered and blended with the rays that proceed from them. The light from this device is most wonderfully manifested in the appearance of a great and mighty sheaf of fire, emitting sparks of twenty-two different shades of color. This luminous sheaf, however, remains invisible and undistinguished until the system is started by the captain, and all these star-like sparks become united and form a column of light.

The Hayoth

The column of light from the Nogah, gives power to the powerful Hayoth that then separate themselves into two groups, one having the form of a lion, the other, that of an ox. Above these are seen the four wheel-like Ophanims, under whose control are a multitude of subordinate devices. Each of these Ophanim has eight wings and draws its power from the Hayoth’s above them and are stationed at the four cardinal points of the world. Each have four figures or forms, two of which are turned towards the Hayoth and two are covered by their wings, that they may not behold the Mercaba (or celestial chariot) in its circular motions, and thus avoid being consumed .

This is the Kabbalistic "Tree of Life" as seen esoterically. It is the living device by which all things travel between spiritual and physical dimensions. Really, it is omnipresent now, beneath, above, and within all things.
Mercaba is the very structure and law of time and space itself.
The Heavenly Chariot carries beings from spiritual to physical manifestation, and back.
When we see Tree of Life on paper, it is circles connected by lines.
In Reality, it is a dynamic matrix of infinite scale and is the machinery of Universal Law.
Indeed, Mercaba is an Ancient spaceship, as it has always carried beings across time and space, and all other dimensions.

Maybe it is just me, but what you are describing here, made me immediately think of this thread:
ATS Thread

Maybe the fellow who made these drawings was doing the same type of thing you are here?

Spaceship? That's an insulting description of the Merkaba. Have you looked it up? The Merkaba has many layers of comprehension. 'Spaceship' is the most shallow and naive summary I've ever come across.

Interesting avatar you have there. Are those fairy tales fluttering around in the back ground?

but it would make a good name for a spaceship in any sci-fi stories.

USS mercaba
ISS mercaba
mercaba I
mercaba II
