“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible — and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said:
‘Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Yahshua will shine on you.’
Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what Yahweh’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns and songs from the Holy Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to Yahweh, always giving thanks to Yahweh your Father for everything, in the Name of our Master Yahshua.” Ephesians 5:11-20
The pound, represented by the £ sign, is the official currency of the United Kingdom, Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, the British Antarctic Territory and Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha (in Tristan da Cunha only).
The £ sign represents one half of a bell (the stroke across it represents the clapper); the bell is associated with Satan, who was in charge of making music to praise Yahweh in heaven, before he was cast out for rebellion:
“You have been in Eden the garden of Yahweh; every precious stone was your covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of your tabrets and of your pipes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.” Ezekiel 28:13
The following verses are about Babylon’s destruction:
“Then a mighty Angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: ‘With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall no longer be heard in you; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in you; and the sound of a bell shall no longer be heard in you.'” Revelation 18:21-22
Bells are sacred and their use in praise and are used in worship of Yahweh Almighty.
The Scriptures reveal how special bells are.
Bells are woven into the hem of Aaron’s robe; he was a priest of Yahweh:
“Make pomegranates of blue, purple and scarlet yarn around the hem of the robe; with gold bells between them. The gold bells and the pomegranates are to alternate around the hem of the robe. Aaron must wear it when he ministers; the sound of the bells will be heard when he enters the Holy Place before Yahweh Almighty and when he comes out, so that he will not die.” Exodus 28:33-35
The sound Aaron made with the bell and pomegranate fringe is connected with entering into and leaving Yahweh’s Presence in the Most Holy Place — and not dying. These bells were functioning to facilitate passage between the physical and spiritual realms, even being involved in accessing the Presence of Yahweh Almighty.
The High Priest was the only person permitted to enter the Most Holy Place, and then only once a year on Yom Kippur (also known as Day of Atonement, it is the holiest day of the year for the Hebrew people; its central themes are atonement and repentance). He had to be ritually cleansed and prepared in every way, which included wearing the bells on the helm of his robe, to be ‘holy to Yahweh’ and enabled to minister in that place, in His Presence. Appearing in any other condition, at any other time, or attempted access by any other person in any condition at any time, would assure death in that place.
The following verse is about celebrating the Festival of Tabernacles:
“On that day ‘Holy to Yahweh’ will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and the cooking pots in Yahweh’s House will be like the sacred bowls in front of the altar. Every pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holy to Yahweh Almighty, and all who come to sacrifice will take some of the pots and cook in them. And on that day there will no longer be a Canaanite in the House of Yahweh Almighty.” Zechariah 14:20
Bells and chimes, jingles and gongs are used in connection with religious institutions, services and rituals, and those used by the institutions of man’s governance.
Think of the Christmas carol, Jingle Bells written by James Lord Pierpont:
Oh jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh, hey!
Let’s take a look at some bells:
The bell was discovered in 1944 by ten-year-old Newton Anderson, inside a lump of coal in his basement. Newt dropped the bituminous coal, mined near his house in Upshur County West Virginia, U.S., and found that it contained this bell inside. The bell is an antediluvian artifact (made before the Great Flood). The Institute for Creation Research had the bell submitted to the lab at the University of Oklahoma, where a nuclear activation analysis revealed it contains an unusual mix of metals, different from any known modern alloy production (including copper, zinc, tin, arsenic, iodine, and selenium). Genesis 4:22 states that Tubal-Cain was “an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron…”
(Earth’s atmosphere before the flood was conducive to the alloying of metals that we are unable to combine today.)
The pre-flood civilisation was a highly advanced one, as the fallen angels taught mankind knowledge stolen from heaven, and were worshipped as ‘gods’, which accounts for the statue of the pagan god atop the bell.
Perhaps when this civilisation came to an end in the flood, this bell was buried with a mass of vegetation that became coal and ended up thousands of years later in Newt Anderson’s coal bin. The bell was prominently featured in the 1992 CBS docudrama production, Ancient Secrets of the Bible and is now part of the Genesis Park collection.
Infamous magician, Freemason and Satanist Aleister Crowley counted the bell amongst the small number of objects commonly used as ‘magickal weapons’, instruments used to bring about intentional change. Frequently, this involved the invocation of fallen angels.
According to The Lost Book Of Enoch Magick Ritual Book:
The Lost Book of Enoch is one of the Dead Sea Scrolls found in the eleven caves of Qumran along with the Bible. After thousands of years and endless difficult Grimoire Magick books on the subject, this book finally reveals the secrets of how to summons these angels and fallen angels of Enoch. You only need a candle, bell, rope and incense and 10 minutes to do each ritual.
(NB: It is IMPOSSIBLE to summon Holy Angels, ‘angels and fallen angels of Enoch’ refers to the the fallen angels that were on earth before the Great Flood.)
The phrase ‘bell, book, and candle’ refers to a method of excommunication for one who had committed a particularly grievous sin. Apparently introduced around the late 9th century, the practice was once used by the Catholic Church; in modern times, a simple pronouncement is made. This ceremony involved a bishop, with 12 priests, reciting an oath on the altar. — Wikipedia
Paul Revere was one of the first York Rite Freemasons in Colonial Massachusetts, when he became a Royal Arch Mason and Knight Templar on December 11, 1769, according to the records of St. Andrew’s Royal Arch Chapter, Boston, Massachusetts. He also served as Most Worshipful Grand Master of The Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, A.F. & A.M. from December 12, 1794 to December 27, 1797. — Paul Revere, York Rite Freemason
There were 23 bells cast at the foundry during Paul Revere’s personal involvement. He cast his first bell in 1792 (for his own church, the Second Church of Boston) and his last in 1811.
In 1798, Paul Revere cast a bell weighing 242 pounds for the frigate Constitution, also known today by its nickname ‘Old Ironsides’. — A Brief History of Ships Bells
