Israel the land of the gods, Isis, Ra and Enlil

When the name Israel is broken down Is it just a co-incidence that the name incorporates three gods/goddesses ? 'Israel' according to the Jews means "God rules" or "God Shines".

So how did the name derive ? Israel is taken from 3 gods, Isis, Ra, El, (Enlil).

She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the matron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers, Isis is often depicted as the mother of Horus, the hawk-headed god of war and protection (although in earlier traditions Horus's mother was Hathor), and she is depicted suckling him in an attitude similar to that of the Virgin Mary with the Child Jesus. Isis is also known as protectress of the dead and goddess of children.

She is the mother nurturer, the high priestess, the goddess of creation, and perhaps representing Eve, the first mother of all.

Isis  represents the feminine aspects of life - male and female alike, for she represents creation, rebirth, reincarnation, Ascension,  intuition, psychic abilities,higher frequency vibrations, love and compassion. In other words, she represents nature and all that is natural of our existence .Isis was a vital link between the gods and mankind.

Isis is depicted as a woman wearing a vulture head-dress and the solar disk between a pair of horns (which is sometimes underneath the symbol of her name throne heiroglyph, the throne). Occasionally she wears the double-crowns of the North and the South with the feather of Ma'at, or a pair of ram's horns. 
Isis the wife of Osiris, she assisted her husband with the Pyramid text during his earthly reign. It was said Isis foresaw her husband's murder. Following his death, Isis tirelessly searched for his body so that he may be properly buried and may rest in peace in the Underworld. It was then suggested that through Isis magic, she brought Osiris back to life, so that he could impregnate her to were their son Horus was born.
The pharaoh was her son, as the living Horus. In the Pyramid Texts the pharaoh suckles as Isis' divine breasts. The imagery of Isis holding the young Horus in her lap has been found along with statues.  
Ra (sometimes spelled Rê) is the sun-god of Heliopolis in ancient Egypt. By the Fifth Dynasty Ra become a major deity in Ancient Egyptian religion, chief of the cosmic gods of the Egyptian people, although identified primarily with the midday sun. The meaning of the name is uncertain, but it is thought that if not a word for 'sun' it may be a variant of or linked to words meaning 'creative power' and 'creator'.

At the beginning of the world Ra was said to have lived on the Earth, as the king of all "god and human alike". It was said that Ra grew tired of his duties as he grew older.MFailing his duties caused many humans to question his abilities on this Ra sent his Eye (deified as the goddess Hathor) to kill those who doubted him. He then left the Earth for the Sky.

Ra was shown with a solar disk.  Later associated with Horus as Re-Horakhty. To the Egyptians, the sun represented light, warmth, and growth. This made the sun deity very important as the sun was seen as the ruler of all that he created. The sun disk was either seen as the body or "eye of Ra".
Ra was thought to travel on two solar boats called the Mandjet (the Boat of Millions of Years), or morning boat and the Mesektet, or evening boat. These boats took him on his journey through the sky and the underworld. Sounds like there could have been Alien visitors among us!
Eye of Ra
As with most widely worshiped Egyptian deities, Ra's identity was often combined with other gods, forming an interconnection between deities in this case Amun becoming Amun-Ra (solar creator god), Amun was a member of the Ogdoad.


We now see the last part to Israel, This is taken from the name El or Enlil.
Enlil or,El as he was later known was a sumerian God. En = Lord, Lil = Air,  Enlil the Lord of Air was a powerful creator god who is exiled to the underworld for raping Ninlil, a young virgin.  He also caused the Deluge, whilst he and others watched from their "Orbiting spacecraft" as the Deluge spread over the lands. Enlil had been the lord of heaven and earth and was ruler of the seas, the winds and all living creaturesEnlil was especially worshipped in the city of Nippur.

Enlil had an half brother Enki who later became known as Ea who was Lord of the Waters Enki is assosiated with the creation of man, also offered the information to Noah to build an arch, it is noted water flowing from the shoulders often representing Enki's hieroglyphs. They both help to make up part of the Annunnaki.

So there we have it the people behind the name. You may well have noted the sentiment of flying, this has been a flavour through the era's of time, religions and myths suggestions of flight, for your information an earlier page refers to such things. link to the stars is a collection of interesting facts taken from our past, which for some reason seems to be ignored, one vital part and point.! We could be decedents of the stars.
