Deity

Yahweh was an ancient Levantine deity, and national god of the Israelite kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Though no consensus exists regarding the deity’s origins, scholars generally contend that Yahweh emerged as a “divine warrior” associated first with Seir, Edom, Paran and Teman, and later with Canaan.

The origins of his worship reach at least to the early Iron Age, and likely to the Late Bronze Age, if not somewhat earlier.

The god’s name was written in paleo-Hebrew as 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (יהוה‎ in block script), transliterated as YHWH; modern scholarship has reached consensus to transcribe this as “Yahweh”.

The shortened forms “Yeho-“, “Yahu-” and “Yo-” appear in personal names and in phrases such as “Hallelujah!”

The sacrality of the name, as well as the Commandment against “taking the name ‘in vain'”, led to increasingly strict prohibitions on speaking or writing the term. Rabbinic sources suggest that, by the Second Temple period, the name of God was pronounced only once a year, by the high priest, on the Day of Atonement.

After the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE, the original pronunciation of the name was forgotten entirely.

I Am that I Am

There is almost no agreement on Yahweh’s origins. His name is not attested other than among the Israelites, and there is no consensus on its etymology, with ehyeh ašer ehyeh (“I Am that I Am“), the explanation presented in Exodus 3:14,

YHWH

Regarding the name yhwꜣ, Michael Astour observed that the “hieroglyphic rendering corresponds very precisely to the Hebrew tetragrammaton YHWH, or Yahweh, and antedates the hitherto oldest occurrence of that divine name – on the Moabite Stone – by over five hundred years.” K. Van Der Toorn concludes: “By the 14th century BC, before the cult of Yahweh had reached Israel, groups of Edomites and Midianites worshipped Yahweh as their god.”

When a man sleeps, the body tells to the soul (neshamah) what it has done during the day; the soul then reports it to the spirit (nefesh), the spirit to the angel, the angel to the cherub, and the cherub to the seraph, who then brings it before God”

This was our planet until they arrived here and began to experiment with evolution on your species. In my personal opinion, we are fighting to save our planet. Then, exactly 4,943 years ago – according to your time scale – the Ilojim left this planet again for unknown reasons. (It is a very important date for us, because it changed so much of our history. Because scholars call it a victory)
