Alchemy

Standard

The dome of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C. features in its occulus an incredibly significant painting that reveals the philosophical, spiritual and political aims of the founding fathers.

Note the massive circle behind former U.S. President George Washington:

The Apotheosis of Washington is a masterful piece of artwork that appears inside the dome of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C.

The Apotheosis of Washington is a piece of artwork that appears inside the dome of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C.

According to Freemasonry, an apotheosis can be defined as ‘the exaltation of a subject to divine level’. It is ‘man realising he is a god already’, a soul manifesting as a body — or, in symbolic terms, a circle surrounded by a square.

Washington is seated on the clouds, with his feet on a rainbow, and behind him is the gateway, the vortex, the stargate to hell (the spirit world). The rainbow is also an interdimensional gateway or portal to the abyss/hell. Washington was a Freemason, who received his wisdom and knowledge through communication with demons and fallen angels.

Washington is surrounded by important figures of ancient paganism, which are intricate parts of the Masonic mysteries: Hermes, Poseidon, Vulcan, Freedom, Ceres and Minerva, who are meant to respectively represent commerce, marine, mechanics, war, agriculture and wisdom. The painting, however, hides an esoteric, alchemical meaning.

Alchemy is both a philosophy and a practice with an aim of achieving ultimate wisdom as well as immortality, involving the improvement of the alchemist as well as the making of several substances described as possessing unusual properties. The ultimate goal of alchemy is the achievement of the ‘Great Work’ which is the transmutation of base metals into gold or, esoterically, the transmutation of men into gods. The painting reflects this harmony between the elements of alchemy, which are air, fire, water and earth, and which are embodied respectively by Hermes, Vulcan, Ceres and Poseidon. George Washington himself is portrayed in a similar fashion as the figure of ‘Alchemy’ on the very esoteric Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral (the cathedral is a monument celebrating Astarte, worshipped by Christians as Mary the mother of the Messiah):

‘The Great Work’ is the journey to be god-like and make something out of nothing. It is initiated with the first step being the alchemical Black Sun. The Black Sun is the first stage in the achievement of enlightenment or immortality, which is accomplished through the Philosopher’s Stone. The Philosopher’ Stone is believed to turn lead into gold, and the planetary association of Saturn to metal is lead.

The planetary association with the sun is gold, so turning Saturn into the sun is the alchemical process of the Philosopher’s Stone, based on metal transformation.

Hermetic traditions teach the existence of two suns, an invisible and etheric one made of pure ‘philosophical gold’ and the material one, the only one the profane can perceive, known as the Black Sun.

Sol niger (black sun) can also refer to the result of the first stage of the magnum opus in alchemy, the nigredo (blackening). The complete magnum opus (Great Work) ends with the production of gold. The magnum opus can also be understood in a mystic way.

Since turning lead into gold is symbolic of man attaining godhood, Monarch slave female celebrities have their hair dyed gold/blond (some of them are natural blonds) to represent the demons that possess them as being immortal.

They are also styled as Marilyn Monroe, an American actress famous in the 1950s and early 1960s.

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

In reality, Marilyn Monroe is a demon that shape-shifted to look like a woman; everything about her life is a fabrication (see Aliens are Demons!). Marilyn is the code name of this demon.

The name Marilyn is derived from ‘Mary’ and ‘Lyn’.

Mary means ‘rebelliousness’ (same as Mary/Astarte the mother of Jesus/Tammuz (see The Great Deception and Shroud of Turin).

Lyn is a short form of ‘Linda’ — the Spanish and Portuguese word for ‘beautiful’.

So Marilyn means ‘the rebellious, beautiful one’.

It was claimed that her real name was Norma Jean:

The female name Norma is a feminine of Norman, in which case it means ‘Of the North’ (see The truth about Santa Claus):

“Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised in the City of our God, in the mountain of His holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the Great King.” Psalm 46:1-2

Jean is a Medieval English form of Jehanne, an Old French feminine form of Iohannes, the Latin form of the Greek name Ιωαννης (Ioannes), itself derived from the Hebrew name יוֹחָנָן (Yochanan) meaning ‘Yahweh is gracious’.

In both names (Norma and Jean) Satan is trying to usurp Yahweh as God.

Keep in mind that these women styled to resemble Marilyn are Monarch slaves (see Monarch slaves and Beta Kittens).

Sinister Sites: At Your Service

In a previous post, we discovered that the seven heads of the Beast that comes out of the sea (Revelation 13:1-2) are the seven rulers of seven European countries (see Pagan gods).

The ‘blasphemous names’ on these seven heads are the ancient and hidden names of continents, countries, cities and towns, which are named after pagan gods, goddesses and their offspring — Nephilim/demons.
In another post, we discussed how the title of Satan is used (see ‘Lord’ is a title for Satan).

Names and symbols of demons/pagan gods/goddesses are also used in establishments around the world, effectively turning these venues into temples dedicated to these deities (see Ganesha, the god of Nakumatt and Sun worship, Java, Nairobi).

Pagan feasts

Standard

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world, rather than on Yahshua.” Colossians 2:8

“But I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to Yahweh; and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the Cup of Yahweh and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of Yahweh’s Table and of the table of demons. Do we provoke Yahweh to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?” 1 Corinthians 10:20-22

There are numerous pagan feasts, disguised as religious, national, international or other festivals, in order to deceive us into observing them. Satanic rituals (including human sacrifice, usually the death of a celebrity or a massacre — which can occur anywhere in the world) are performed on these days, and we unwittingly lend our energies to these festivals when we celebrate them, as we have been conditioned to.

All rituals generate energy, that is their purpose, and that energy is harnessed by the lower beings, for their evil ends.

(Catholic Mass is a ritual, performed several times daily, and the human sacrifice — the pagan god Jesus Christ — is eaten at the end in the form of a wafer (flesh) and red wine (blood). This is a Eucharist wafer ritual based on the transubstantiation illusion — a symbolic form of cannibalism.)

Most pagan feasts were christianised by pagan sun worshippers, by renaming them with those of Christian and national (and later international) festivals.

New Year’s Day

Roman emperor Julius Caesar in 46 BCE established January 1st as the Roman New Year’s day and named the month ‘January’ after Janus, the two-faced Roman god of gates, doors, doorways, ending and time — he is two faced since he looks to the future and the past. He set this month as the appropriate ‘door’ to the year. The observance of New Year can be traced back to Babylonian fertility rites associated with spring and the renewal of the land following winter. Babylonians made New Year’s resolutions as part of divination of what the next year was to bring.

Valentine’s Day

Pagans in Rome celebrated the evening of February 14th and February 15th as an idolatrous festival in honour of Lupercus, ‘the hunter of wolves’ and Roman god of shepherds, agriculture and fertility. It was not until the reign of Pope Gelasius that the feast became a Christian custom. As far back as 496 CE, Pope Gelasius changed Lupercalia on February 15th to St. Valentine’s Day on February 14th.

The Roman goddess Februa is a patroness of love and celebrated by the Romans through orgiastic rites. The feast was originally set to honour Babylonian King Nimrod, Queen Semiramis, and their son Tammuz. The original ‘Saint Valentine’ was Nimrod. There was some relabelling of names along the way, including Semiramis transferring to Venus, the fertility moon goddess. The son, Tammuz, was identified as Cupid, and Nimrod (the father) was relabelled as Jupiter (the Roman version of Greek god Zeus).

On this day in February, Semiramis, Nimrod’s wife, who ‘gave birth to a reincarnated Nimrod’ after his death, was said to have been purified and to have appeared for the first time in public with her son as the original ‘mother and child’. Cupid, aka Tammuz, was known for shooting arrows at the heart, which was considered the seed for all emotions in the body at one time. The tradition of giving flowers and candies comes from the occult practice during this celebration, when worshippers would bring spring flowers, candies, etc, to the temple for the spring goddess (Semiramis), who had been hibernating and was now beginning to awaken. Cupid is also known as Young Jupiter or Bacchus (the Roman god of wine and debauchery). In reality, Valentine’s Day is a love affair with pagan traditions.

Mother’s and Father’s Day

Mother’s day dates back to ancient cultures in Greece and Rome. In both cultures, mother goddesses were worshipped during springtime (Easter) with religious festivals. The ancient Greeks paid tribute to the powerful goddess Rhea, the wife of Cronus, known as the ‘Mother of the gods’. Similarly, evidence of a three-day Roman festival in mid-March called Hilaria, to honour the Roman goddess Magna Mater, or ‘Great Mother’, dates back to 250 BCE. As Christianity spread throughout Europe, the pagan celebration of the ‘Mother Church’ replaced the tradition of honouring mythological goddesses.

The fourth Sunday in Lent (a 40-day fasting period before Easter) became known as Mothering Sunday. To show appreciation for their mothers, worshippers often brought gifts or a ‘mothering cake’, and over time, it began to coincide with the celebration of the Mother Church.

Mother’s Day always falls on the second Sunday of May, and, like so many other feasts rooted in pagan sun worship, including Father’s Day, which always falls on the third Sunday of June, it usually falls on the day near the summer solstice. The sun is always typified as a male generative power, as seen in its phallic representations (a fine example is the sun dial and obelisk in St. Peter’s Square in Rome, Italy). Pagan names for the summer solstice celebrations include Midsummer, Litha, Samradh, Alban Hefin, and Aerra Litha.

Easter Sunday

Easter is Ishtar (also Ashtaroth or Ashtoreth or Asherah or Istar or Semiramis) the bare-breasted pagan fertility goddess of the East. She is Astarte of the Phoenicians, worshipped as the goddess of the Moon; sometimes depicted as a woman with crescent horns, seated on a lion. Astarte was Satan’s human wife in the pre-flood world, also worshipped as Ashtaroth in the post-flood world (Satan is the sun god also worshipped as Baal (Judges 2:13) and a lion (1 Peter 5:8).

Semiramis was known by this name when she deified herself; and this goddess is also worshipped under various other names.

Astarte was worshipped by the Babylonians as Ishtar, by Lydians as Upis, by the Norse as Disa, by the Etruscans and Romans as Nutria, by the Celts as Virgo Partitura, by the Persians and Armenians as Anahid, Nahid, Naheed, Anahita, Anitis, Anahitis and Ardvi Sura Anahita; ruler of Waters, Stars and Fate, also known as Lady of the Lions or Lady of the Beasts, she is associated with rivers and lakes, the waters of birth, the necessary female principle of creation. The female principle is often represented by the moon, where the moon goddess is opposite to the sun god. The crescent moon sails the absu/heavenly waters/the seven seas aka 7-Up. She is worshipped as Hera, Gaia, Demeter, Rhea, Artemis, Athena, Aphrodite and Leto by the Greeks, Venus, Aurora, Cybele, Minerva, Ceres, Fortuna, Juno, Hecate and Diana by the Romans, Chang’e, Chang-o, Heng’e and Heng-O by the Chinese, Kali and Aditi by the Indians and Dzydzilelya by the Russians and Poles.

Easter itself comes from East-Star — the star which comes up in the East — meaning the sun star, since she was also a sun goddess.) Legend has it that she came out of heaven in a giant egg, landing in the Euphrates River at sunrise on the first Sunday after the Vernal Equinox, burst out, and turned a bird into an egg-laying rabbit (Easter Bunny).

The priest of Easter would then sacrifice human babies and take the eggs of Easter and dye them in the blood of the sacrificed babies. The Easter eggs would hatch on December 25th, the same day her son Tammuz the reincarnate sun god would be born.

In 2nd century Europe, the predominate spring festival was a raucous Saxon fertility celebration in honour of the Saxon goddess Eastre (Ostara), whose sacred animal was the rabbit. Even today rabbits are known for their great fertility. It was only natural to select a rabbit as a symbol of fertility and fertility festivals.

The egg is used as a symbol of resurrection. The pagan festival of Ishtar is always held in late April to celebrate the earth regenerating itself after winter. Eggs and rabbit symbols were used for fertility.

 The Vatican flag holds both colours of the egg; the egg yolk and the egg white. It also features the papal tiara, a bell, four crosses, and the two crossed keys representing the pope’s claim for temporal and spiritual power (which form three more crosses)

Chocolate Easter bunnies and eggs

The coloured eggs associated with the bunny are of another, even more ancient, origin. The eggs associated with this and other Vernal festivals have been symbols of rebirth and fertility since the beginning of pagan worship in the pre-flood world.

Eggs were symbolic from an early time. There was the Mundane Egg, in which Brahma (Hindu god of creation) gestated with the Hindu’s Hiranya-Gharba (literally ‘golden womb’ or ‘golden egg’); and the Mundane Egg of the Egyptians, which proceeds from the mouth of the ‘unmade and eternal deity’, Kneph, and which is the emblem of generative power. Then the Egg of Babylon, which hatched Ishtar.

Therefore, coloured eggs were used yearly during yearly every spring in almost every country, and in Egypt were exchanged as sacred symbols in the spring-time, which was, is, and ever will be, the emblem of birth or rebirth, cosmic and human, celestial and terrestrial.

They were hung up in Egyptian temples and are so suspended to this day in Mahometan mosques.

The philosophical or cosmic egg is another nearly universal symbol. Alchemically, the egg is a symbol of the cosmos, as it is in a multitude of folk legends. In Hindu cosmology it is the source of the universe. The egg as a container of the universe is found in many ancient religions. The egg symbolises birth and potential. It contains within a miniature Phanéssun (mystical, primeval Greek deity of procreation and the generation of new life), and it features prominently in solar mythology. The Hindu god Vishnu, Orphic Phanés, and Persian Mithras are all ‘egg born’ solar deities. Another solar entity, the rooster, is also born of an egg.

Omphalos

Omphalos

Some archaeologists refer to this stone (egg shaped) as an omphalos stone, and compare it to similar stones found in Delphi, Greece. The omphalos stone identified a site as a ‘centre of the world’, as well as a meeting place of heaven and earth.

(An omphalos (ὀμφαλός) is a religious stone artifact, or baetylus. In Greek, the word omphalos means ‘navel’. In Greek lore, Zeus sent two eagles across the world to meet at its center, the ‘navel’ of the world. Omphalos stones marking the centre were erected in several places about the Mediterranean Sea; the most famous of those was at Delphi. The omphalos was not only an object of pagan religious symbolism and world centrality but also one of power. Its symbolic references included the uterus, the phallus and a cup of red wine representing royal blood lines. It may also have connections to the Holy Grail and the Arthurian Sword in the Stone.)

Ancient Romans and Greeks used eggs as symbols of fertility, rebirth, and abundance, eggs were solar symbols, and figured in the festivals of numerous resurrected gods. The solar worship association of Easter relates to the concept of resurrection. In some pagan traditions, the sun was said to die when it set at night and be resurrected when it rose the next morning. The tradition of holding Easter sunrise services is linked to the original sun worship aspects of the spring fertility festivals.
Pagan fertility festivals at the time of the Spring Equinox were common; it was believed that at this time, when day and night were of equal length, male and female energies were also in balance. The hare is often associated with moon goddesses; the egg and the hare together represent the god and the goddess, respectively.

Once more we see symbolism indicating both the male and female generative forces. This is a very common theme with occult symbols and their meanings.

Fast forward 1,500 years, to Germany, where children await the arrival of Oschter Haws, a rabbit who lays coloured eggs in nests to the delight of children who discover them on Easter morning. It was this German tradition that popularised the ‘Easter Bunny’ in America, when introduced into the American cultural fabric by German settlers in Pennsylvania.

Many modern practitioners of Neo-pagan and earth-based religions have embraced these symbols as part of their religious practice, identifying with the life-affirming aspects of the spring feast. (The Neo-pagan feast of Ostara is descended from the Saxon festival.) Ironically, some Christian groups have used the presence of these symbols to denounce the celebration of the Easter feast, and many churches have recently abandoned the ancient moniker with more Christian oriented titles like ‘Resurrection Sunday’. The name change doesn’t change the fact that Easter has a pagan origin.

According to the Scriptures, Yahshua was crucified and resurrected at the time of the Hebrew Passover. The Hebrew Passover was set on the Hebrew lunar calendar to occur in spring to commemorate when Israel was brought out of Egypt.

Strictly lunar calendars are approximately 12.5 lunar months in every solar year (a lunar month is roughly 29.5 days; 12 lunar months equal 354 days), so a 12-month lunar calendar is about 11 days shorter than a solar year and a 13-month lunar year is about 19 days longer than a solar year. (Passover was celebrated in the month Nisan (March-April) by the use of a 13-month leap year about every three years, from the 15th of Nissan to the 21st of Nisan. During these leap years, a second month of Adar (February-March) was added to the calendar.) The months drift around the seasons on such a calendar. On a 12-month lunar calendar, the month of Nisan, which is supposed to occur in spring, would occur 11 days earlier in the season each year, eventually occurring in summer, autumn, winter, then spring again. On a 13-month lunar calendar, the same thing would happen in the other direction, and faster.

To compensate for this drift, the Hebrew calendar uses a 12-month lunar calendar with an extra month occasionally added. The month of Nisan occurs 11 days earlier each year for two or three years, and then jumps forward 30 days, balancing out the drift. In ancient times, this month was added by observation; the Sanhedrin (Hebrew council) observed the conditions of the weather, the crops and the livestock, and if these were not sufficiently advanced to be considered ‘spring’, then the Sanhedrin inserted an additional month into the calendar to make sure that Passover would occur in spring.

Adar is the sixth month of the civil year and the twelfth month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar. It is a winter month of 29 days. In leap years (the Jewish calendar is based on a lunar year of 354 days, which is adjusted to the solar year by periodic leap years), it is preceded by a 30-day intercalary month named Adar Aleph (Aleph being the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet), Adar Rishon (First Adar) or Adar I and it is then itself called Adar Bet (Bet being the second letter of the Hebrew Alphabet), Adar Sheni (Second Adar) or Adar II. Occasionally instead of Adar I and Adar II, ‘Adar’ and ‘Ve’Adar’ are used (Ve means ‘and’ thus: And Adar). Adar I and II occur during February-March on the Gregorian calendar.

Passover was to fall after the Spring Equinox, when spring-like conditions were very well established. In the 4th century BCE, the Hebrews adopted a perpetual calendar which is followed today. This calendar comprises 19-year cycles, each cycle containing seven leap years.

It should be noted that the use of a solar calendar itself is based upon pagan sun worship. The Gregorian calendar is the most widely used calendar in the world today. It was first proposed by the Calabrian doctor Aloysius Lilius, and decreed by Pope Gregory XIII, after whom it was named, on February 24, 1582 by papal bull Inter gravissimas. It is a reform of the Julian calendar. The Julian calendar was a reform of the Roman calendar, which was introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 BCE and came into force in 45 BCE (709 Ab Urbe Condita — ‘from the founding of the city’ (Rome)). It was chosen after consultation with the astronomer Sosigenes of Alexandria and was probably designed to approximate the tropical year, known at least since Hipparchus of Nicaea.

Hipparchus was the astronomer and sun worshipper who first suggested the heresy that the earth spins on its axis and moves around the sun once in a year. This tropical year has a regular year of 365 days divided into 12 months, and a leap day is added to February every four years. Hence the Julian year is on average 365.25 days long. The Romans got the idea of a solar calendar from the Egyptians.

Yahweh established a lunar calendar for the use of His people, as a tool for working the fields and harvesting crops, and numbering man’s years on earth. Physiologically and psychologically the human body functions in conjunction with lunar cycles. Just like the seven-day week (based on the Creation Week) with six days of work and the seventh day of rest works better for human time keeping, a lunar calendar carries with it many similar benefits.

Halloween

All Saints’ Day was followed by All-Souls’ Day, November 2nd, unless that was a Sunday then it was forwarded to November 3rd; this was another Catholic adaptation of pagan festivals for the dead (Samhain/Halloween). Prayers for the dead (demons) are an integral part of the traditional All Saint’s Day services, which are scheduled in Catholic churches on November 1st, and on the next Sunday. Halloween gets its name from the Catholic feast, it is a ‘hallowed’ evening, because it precedes All Hallows’ Day, thus: Hallow’en. Halloween is a pagan feast to honour the dead/evil spirits. We are warned not to take part in customs and traditions like this in the Scriptures (Deuteronomy 12:29-31). Many pagan cultures celebrate the day of the dead.
Pagans served their gods by honouring evil spirits on Halloween. They did this by dressing up like the evil spirits and offering sacrifices to them (see Halloween and Betelgeuse).

Thanksgiving

The pagans in Rome celebrated their Thanksgiving in early October. The feast was dedicated to Ceres, Roman goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationships, and it was called Cerelia. The Catholic Church took over the pagan feast and it became well established in England, where some of the pagan customs and rituals for this day were observed long after the Roman Empire had disappeared. In England, the ‘Harvest Home’ festival, also called Ingathering, has been observed continuously for centuries. A similar festival was traditionally held in parts of Ireland, Scotland, and northern Europe.

Participants celebrate the last day of harvest in late September by singing, shouting, and decorating the village with boughs. The cailleac, or last sheaf of corn (grain), which represents the spirit of the field, is made into a harvest doll and drenched with water as a rain charm. This sheaf is saved until spring planting.

In America, among the Aztecs of Mexico, the harvest took on a grimmer aspect. Each year a young girl, a representation of Xilonen, the goddess of the new corn, was beheaded. The Pawnees (Native Indian American) also sacrificed a girl. In a more temperate mood, the Cherokees of the American Southeast danced the Green Corn Dance and began the new year at harvest’s end. The practice among the Cherokee would also coincide with the ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations. Harvest is often symbolic of death and rebirth (reincarnation), for seeds die when planted and then come to life in the spring for harvest in the fall.

Thanksgiving, and all pagan harvest festivals, can be traced right back to ancient Babylon and the worship of Semiramis.

Christmas

Christmas was celebrated by pagan sun worshippers for thousands of years before the Messiah was born. Nimrod, the King of Babylon, Noah’s great-grandson, married his sister Semiramis and, as they embraced polytheism, they both deified themselves. Semiramis, under the goddess name of Ishtar, had a son named Gilgamesh/Tammuz (the child of the virgin birth or Immaculate Conception, an attempt to desecrate the prophecy of Yahshua’s birth to the Virgin Miriam).

The virgin birth tenet is found in Mary and Jesus Christ (Roman/Christian), Fortuna and Cupid (Roman), Ceres and Pluto (Roman), Cybele/Diana and Attis (Roman), Isis and Horus (Egyptian), Damgalnuna and Marduk (Sumerian), Innana and Dumuzi (Babylonian), Hebat and Sarruma (Hurian), Devaki and Krishna/Isi and Iswara (Indian), Cybele and Deoius (Asian), Irene and Plutus (Greek), Leto and Apollo (Greek), Hera and Ares (Greek), Astarte and Bacchus (Phoenician), Ashtoreth and Tammuz (Lebanese), Heng-O/Ma Tsoopo and Yi (Chinese), Coattlicue and Quetzalcoatl (Mayan), Fregg/Freyda and Balder (Scandanavian), effectively linking all these faiths to Semiramis and Tammuz, and back to the beginning: To Astarte and Tammuz (Satan’s son).

Semiramis taught that Tammuz-the son was a God child; that he was Nimrod reborn, and that her and her child were divine. Thus establishing MOTHER AND CHILD WORSHIP:

Mama Wati (Mama Water), a popular mother goddess, is the water and serpent deity, often depicted with snakes flowing with her hair (Semiramis/Medusa).

Under her title, ‘mother of the gods’, the ‘queen of heaven’ and a ‘fertility goddess’, Semiramis, the goddess Queen of Babylon, became an object of universal worship. When the Israelites fell into apostasy under King Solomon, they worshipped this mother-goddess as Ashtaroth.

(In Christianity, Satan is god, Astarte is Mary and Tammuz is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ and his twelve disciples represent Tammuz and the 12 cardinals of Nimrod’s and Semiramis’ temple, the ‘saints’ represent various Babylonian and Roman gods and goddesses. Tammuz as the son of Semiramis was a reincarnation — Moonchild — he was the son of Satan and Astarte in the pre-flood world, and will again reincarnate as a Moonchild; Satan will literally rule the world through his son.

Saint Peter represents King Solomon; his statue at Saint Peter’s Square in Rome depicts Solomon holding the key which unlocks the mystical ‘wisdom’ of the occult.

(King Solomon, an exceptionally wise man, was initiated into Freemasonry by Hiram Abi, an architect sent to him by King Hiram of Tyre — an old friend of his father King David — to work on the temple Solomon was building for his God, Almighty Yahweh (1 Kings 7:13-45). Hiram Abi, as ordered by the King of Tyre, ensnared the wise young king into becoming a Freemason and worshipping evil; Solomon consequently became a powerful magician, who wrote many grimoires (spell books) on demonology, including the famous The Lesser Key of Solomon, which contains names, seals and functions of demons, purported to be the same as those the king conversed with, as well as a collection of orations or prayers which are interspersed with magical words, exquisite drawings, and figures illustrating how to conjure evil spirits. It is divided into five books — the Ars Goetia, Ars Theurgia-Goetia, Ars Paulina, Ars Almadel, and Ars Notoria. These books instruct on how to invoke powerful demons to do one’s bidding and to teach the forbidden knowledge stolen from heaven by the fallen angels.

For this reason, he is exalted by Freemasons/Illuminati/Satanists.)

Vatican Secret Map

Saint Peter’s Basilica is symbolic of King Solomon’s Temple. Peter means ‘rock’, so the Freemasons have founded the temple on the rock of Solomon’s Masonic works.

The honeycomb pattern on cathedral and basilica ceilings represents the ‘royal’ house of the ruling elite/bloodline families; bees represent the families, and the beehive represents industry, built by commoners/workers; honey represents esoteric teachings/knowledge. The winged, chubby, male infant creatures are known as putti (singular: putto) and are spirits/demons that represent fertility.

The bee and the hive have long been symbols of industry and regeneration, wisdom and obedience, with a place in Egyptian, Roman and Christian symbolism. The hive is often seen in Masonic illustrations of the 18th and 19th century and both Merovingian King Clovis and French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte adopted the bee as their symbol. Although the bee was among the Egyptians the symbol of an obedient people, because, of all insects, the bee alone had a king, its use in Freemasonry was secondary to any number of other symbols based on the working tools of a stone mason. Looking at the regulated labour of these insects when congregated in their hive, it is not surprising that a beehive should have been deemed an appropriate emblem of systematized industry. Freemasonry has therefore adopted the beehive as a symbol of industry, a virtue taught in the instructions.

“The Merovingian kings were noted sorcerers in the manner of the Samaritan Magi, and they firmly believed in the hidden powers of the honeycomb. Because a honeycomb is naturally made up of hexagonal prisms, it was considered by philosophers to be the manifestation of divine harmony in nature. Its construction was associated with insight and wisdom — as detailed in Proverbs 24:13-14: “Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: If you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” To the Merovingians, the bee was a most hallowed creature. A sacred emblem of Egyptian royalty, it became a symbol of wisdom. Three hundred small golden bees were found stitched onto the cloak of Merovingian King Childeric I (son of Merovech) when his grave was unearthed in 1653. Napoleon Bonaparte, the first emperor of France, had these attached to his own coronation robe in 1804. He claimed this right by virtue of his descent from James de Rohan-Stuardo, the natural son (legitimised in 1667) of Charles II Stuart of Britain by Marguerite, Duchesse de Rohan. The Stuarts in turn were entitled to this distinction because they, and their related Counts of Brittany, were descended from Merovingian King Clodion’s brother Fredemundus; thus (akin to the Merovingians) they were equally in descent from the Fisher Kings through Faramund. The Merovingian bee was adopted by the exiled Stuarts in Europe, and engraved bees are still to be seen on some Jacobite glassware.” — Bloodline of the Holy Grail by Laurence Gardner

Inside the basilica, there’s a ‘wall of prayer’, with a black square embedded, for the worshippers to touch. In occult symbolism, the square means control, two or more squares mean absolute control; and a black square symbolises the knowledge of controlling the dark and negative energies. The dove represents wisdom, and the upside down dove represents the fall of Lucifer.

Here’s a pictogram puzzle found in the ‘Key of Solomon’ manuscripts, on a Hebrew parchment containing the Secret of the Key of Solomon:

Solomon Key

The Key of Solomon unlocks the mystery behind the home constellations of the ‘gods’, identified as Orion’s Belt and the Pleiades; the same two constellations pointed out by all ancient advanced civilisations as the home of the gods, and obsessively worshiped by the ruling elite ever since

The Star Fortress also represents the Star of Ra

The Vatican is a place of dark rituals and great secrecy. The purpose of the ruling elite is to enslave the human species through indoctrination, fear and control. And because people fear what they do not understand, the influence of the Vatican and the Christian/Catholic Church is immense — greater than any army, tyrant or government. They are also the greatest financial power on earth and they will continue to exercise their influence for as long as the human species will continue to spiritually sleep.

This mystic cult is given credence by the multitude of accounts about supernatural phenomena involving statues, apparitions, and healings. Fallen angels have the power to heal and perform magic.

No man or institution has the authority to declare any person a saint. Only Almighty Yahweh has that right.

Nimrod was worshipped as the sun god and also supervised the people who built the Tower of Babel. Then a prophet of the Most High — his grand-uncle Shem — killed him and cut his body into pieces and scattered those pieces all across the land. Semiramis or Ishtar or Easter, now the widow of Nimrod, was called the ‘Queen of Heaven’. She fell pregnant long after her husband’s death (by the bishop of the temples they had built; Semiramis replaced Nimrod as the pope), and claimed to have been impregnated by the rays of the sun/sun god (Nimrod) and gave birth to Tammuz, on December 25th, which she declared to be a reincarnation of Nimrod.

All pagan sun worshippers celebrate the birthday of the reincarnate sun god Nimrod/Tammuz on this day.

“The children gather wood, the fathers light the fire and the women knead the dough and make cakes of bread for the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to provoke Me to anger.” Jeremiah 7:18

The ‘Queen of Heaven’ is Ashtaroth, the name by which the pagan Babylonian goddess was known to the Israelites (Numbers 25:1-2, Judges 6:25). The cakes or baked goods were made as offerings to her. Today this pagan practice has been replaced with leaving milk (a drink offering) and cookies (baked goods) for Santa on Christmas Eve (see The truth about Santa Claus).

On Christmas Eve, the Yule log is thrown onto the fire. The Yule tree, or modern day Christmas tree, derives from a ritual to Norse god Thor in which humans, especially children, were sacrificed before the mighty tree of Thor. This is why the Yule log is symbolically burned.

Golden Child, Vatican Treasury

This golden child sculpture in St. Peter’s Basilica Sacristy and Treasury Museum in Rome, Italy, like so many other images of the child in Roman Catholic churches, is reminiscent of the ancient worship of Tammuz as a child, who represents the rebirth of the sun; note the sunburst. As a pagan god-child, he was called Baal-berith, or Lord of the Tree.

To Tammuz, the egg was sacred, as depicting the mystery of his resurrection even as the evergreen (Christmas tree) was his chosen symbol and was set up in honour of his birth at the winter solstice (December 19th to 23rd), when a boar’s head was eaten in memory of his conflict and a Yule log burned with many mysterious observances.

The word yule meant ‘infant’ in the language of the Chaldeans, who lived in the Middle East. The Germanic tribes of Northern Europe, including the Anglo Saxons, celebrated ‘Yule Day’ or ‘Child’s Day’.

The Christmas tree is specifically a Babylonian symbol. On Christmas Day, the tree, decorated and surrounded with presents, represents the resurrected Nimrod of Babylon. Specifically, the erect tree is a phallic symbol of Nimrod’s erect masculinity. Persian sun god Mithra was also born on December 25th. Thousands of Early Believers were crucified in honour of the sun god Mithra.

Sextus Julius Africanus popularised the idea that Jesus Christ (the pagan god created by Roman Emperor Constantine, and whose name has replaced the true Name of the Messiah in the Scriptures, which are greatly altered) was born on December 25th in his Chronographiai — a reference book for Christians written in 221 CE. The earliest reference to the celebration of the nativity on December 25th is found in the Chronography of 354 CE, an illuminated manuscript compiled in Rome in 354 CE. Christmas was promoted in the Christian East as part of the revival of Catholicism following the death of the pro-Arian Emperor Valens at the Battle of Adrianople in 378 CE. The feast was introduced to Constantinople in 379 CE, and to Antioch in about 380 CE. The feast disappeared after Gregory of Nazianzus resigned as bishop in 381 CE, although it was reintroduced by John Chrysostom in about 400 CE.

In Rome, December 25th was made popular by Pope Liberius in 354 CE and became the rule in the West in 435 CE when the first ‘Christ Mass’ was officiated by Pope Sixtus III.

(Yahshua was a Hebrew and adhered to the system of worship established by Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses. He did not invent any new religion, nor request His disciples to do so. (Abraham is the first person referred to as a ‘Hebrew’ in the Scriptures, in Genesis 14:13, he represents the beginning of the Hebrew nation.)

Hebrew means ‘crossing over, passing over or transition’. Abraham crossed over from being a heathen to worshipping the Living God; Yahweh, when he was called (Genesis 12:1-3). The Hebrews crossed over the Jordan (Yarden) into the Promised Land. Yarden means ‘the descender’, that which comes down. A pre-flood patriarch named Jared (Yared) had a name of the same derivation meaning — ‘to descend’. In his lifetime, certain angels descended to earth and caused great corruption. The Hebrew people were established to ‘pass over’ the ‘descenders’, that is, a people established to bypass the corruption (of our DNA) caused before the flood (which re-occurred after the flood) in order that the Messiah might be born.)

Christianity and Judaism were influenced by Zoroastrianism, an Iranian religion founded by Nimrod (he was also known as Zarathushtra and Zoroaster, and the Assyrian god Ninus), which can be traced to 600 BCE. Descendants of Zoroastrian Persian immigrants are known as Parsis, or Parsees. In India the religion is called Parsiism. Zoroastrianism shares many central concepts with the major world religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Zoroastrian sacred text is the Avesta (Book of the Law), a fragmentary collection of sacred writings.

The Pharisees/Rabbis — Judaism leaders — took over the sacred positions held by the Levite priests, as Judaism encroached the belief system of the children of Israel, and corrupted it.

So when exactly was Yahshua born?

Most Scriptural scholars agree that it was not December 25th, for a number of reasons linked to the historical record of His birth in the Scriptures. Meteorological studies of Israel’s climate show that it has been more or less constant for the last two thousand years. In December, the area near Bethlehem experiences average temperatures of seven degrees Celsius, but this can drop to well below freezing, especially at night. The area will have frost during the months of December, January and February.

The Scriptures clearly states that at the time of Yahshua’s birth that shepherds were attending their sheep in the fields at night. Traditional Hebrew shepherds kept their sheep in the field from April to the beginning of October, then brought them home to shelter in winter. The fact that the shepherds were still in the fields meant it was not yet October.

“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An Angel appeared to them, and the Glory of Yahweh shone around them, and they were terrified. But the Angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; He is the Messiah, Yahshua. This will be a sign to you: You will find a Baby wrapped in garments and lying in a manger.’” Luke 2:8-2

It is also written that Yahshua was born during a census.

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken. And everyone went to their own town to register.

“In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)” Luke 2:1-2

The common theory that the census was taken ‘when Quirinius was governor’ is incorrect, as Publius Sulpicius Quirinius did not become governor until 6 BCE. Luke 2:2 says that the census taken around the time Joseph and Miriam went down to Bethlehem was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. This implies that there was a later census — most likely the one referred to by Romano-Jewish scholar Titus Flavius Josephus — which Luke would have also certainly known about.

Quirinius was actually twice in a position of command (the Greek expression hegemoneuo in Luke 2:2 which is often translated ‘governor’ really just means ‘to be leading’ or ‘in charge of’) over the province of Syria, which included Judea as a political subdivision. The first time would have been when he was leading military action against the Homonadenses, a tribe in the inner (Taurus) mountainous district lying between Phrygia, Cilicia and Lycaonia, during the period between 12 and 2 BCE. His title may even have been ‘military governor’.

A a fragment of marble with part of a Latin inscription discovered near Tibur (Tivoli) in 1764 (preserved in the Lateran Museum of Christian Antiquities) adds weight to the idea that Quirinius was in a position of authority in Syria on two separate occasions. There was definitely a taxing during this time and therefore, quite possible, an associated census, the details of which may have been common knowledge in Luke’s time, but are now lost to us.

“So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Miriam, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the Baby to be born, and she gave birth to her first born, a son. She wrapped Him in garments and placed Him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.” Luke 2:4-7

(Yahshua being placed in a manger was symbolic, as He was to be the Sacrificial Lamb, to die for our salvation. Yahshua was not born in a stable or barn. In traditional Middle Eastern villages, people of great wealth would naturally have had separate quarters for animals. But simple village homes often had but two rooms. One was exclusively for guests.

That room could be attached to the end of the house or be a ‘prophet’s chamber’ as in the story of Elijah (1 Kings 17:17-19). The main room was a ‘family room’, where the entire family cooked, ate, slept and lived. The end of the room next to the door was either a few feet lower than the rest of the floor or blocked off with heavy timbers. Each night into that designated area, the family cow, donkey and a few sheep would be driven.

And every morning, those same animals were taken out into the courtyard of the house. The animal stall would then be cleaned for the day. Such simple homes can be traced from the time of King David up to the middle of the 20th century, in Upper Galilee and Bethlehem.

Miriam and Joseph were given hospitality by a local family, and Miriam gave birth not by herself but with the assistance of women from the village. Middle Eastern customs of hospitality and honour would have required it, especially since Joseph’s family hailed from the region and he likely still had extended relatives in the area. In some translations, ‘no room for guests’ has taken on the interpretation that Miriam and Joseph went into an inn and the inn had a number of rooms and all were occupied. But the Greek word topos does not refer to ‘a room in an inn’ but rather to ‘space’. A better translation would be ‘there was no guest room available for them’.

Miriam and Joseph were received into a private home. The child was born, wrapped and literally ‘put to bed’ (anaklino) in the family room in a manger filled with fresh straw that was either built into the floor or made of wood and moved into the family room. They were not invited into the family guest room because it was already occupied by other guests. The host family graciously accepted Miriam and Joseph into the family room of their home. The room would, naturally, be cleared of men for the birth of the child.

The manger was in a warm and friendly home, not in a stable or barn.)

The Roman and Judean rulers knew that taking a census in winter would have been impractical and unpopular. Generally, a census would take place after the harvest season, around September or October, when it would not seriously affect the economy, the weather was good and the roads were still dry enough to allow easy travel. Desiring any sort of participation in the census and in consideration of the safety of their subjects, no official would have thought of scheduling a census during the winter months. For such an agrarian society, an autumn post-harvest census was much more likely.

The exact date when Yahshua was born is September 29, 5 BCE.

Eid al Fitr

Eid-al-Fitr (Eid al-Fitr, Eid ul-Fitr, Id-Ul-Fitr, Eid) is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. It marks the end of Ramadan, which is a month of fasting and prayer.

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the rigid observance of thirty days of fasting during the daylight hours, has pagan roots developed in India and the Middle East. The observance of fasting to honour the moon (Allah, the god of Islam, was worshipped in Arabia as the moon god during pre-Islamic times (see Pagan gods)), and ending the fast when the moon’s crescent appears, was practiced with the rituals of the Eastern worshippers of the moon. Both Ibn al-Nadim and the Shahrastani tell us about al-Jandrikinieh, an Indian sect which began to fast when the moon disappeared and ended the fast with a great feast when the crescent reappeared. When the next crescent moon was sighted, the fast was broken with a feast called al-Fitr.

The Sabians, who were pagans in the Middle East, were identified with two groups, the Mandaeans and the Harranians. The Mandaeans lived in Iraq during the 2nd century CE. As they continue to do today, they worshipped multiple gods, or ‘light personalities’. Their gods were classified under four categories: ‘First life’, ‘Second life’, ‘Third life’ and ‘Fourth life’. Old gods belong to the ‘First life’ category. They summoned deities who, in turn, created ‘Second life’ deities, and so forth.

The Harranians worshipped Sin, the moon, as their main deity, but they also worshipped planets and other deities. The Sabians were in contact with Ahnaf, an Arabian group which Mohammed joined before claiming to be a prophet. Ahnaf sought knowledge by going to northern Iraq, where there were many communities of Mandaeans. They also went to the city of Harran in the al-Jazirah district in northern Syria on the border between Syria, Iraq and Asia Minor.

In Mecca, the Ahnaf were called Sabians because of the doctrines they embraced. Later, when Mohammed claimed to be a prophet, he was called a Sabian by the inhabitants of Mecca because they saw him performing many Sabian rites which included praying five times a day, performing several movements in prayer that were identical with the Mandaeans and the Harranians, and making ablution, or ceremonial washing, before each prayer. In the Qur’an, Mohammed called the Sabians ‘people of the book’ like the Jews and Christians.

Ramadan was a pagan ceremony practiced by the Sabians, whether they were Harranians or Sabians. From the writings of Abu Zanad, an Arabic writer from Iraq who lived around 747 CE, we conclude that at least one Mandaean community located in northern Iraq observed Ramadan.

Ramadan was originally an Annual Ritual Performed at the City of Harran. Although the fasting of Ramadan was practiced in pre-Islamic times by the pagans of Jahiliyah, it was introduced to Arabia by the Harranians. Harran was a city on the border between Syria and Iraq, very close to Asia Minor which is modern Turkey. Their main deity was the moon, and in the worship of the moon, they conducted a major fast which lasted thirty days. It began the eighth of March and usually finished on the eighth of April. Arabic historians, such as Ibn Hazm, identify this fast with Ramadan.

Ibn al-Nadim wrote in his book, Al-Fahrisit, about various religious sects in the Middle East. He says in the month in which the Harranians fasted for thirty days, they honoured the god Sin, which is the moon. Al-Nadim described the feasts they celebrated and the sacrifices they presented to the moon. Another historian, Ibn Abi Zinad also speaks about the Harranians, saying that they fast for thirty days, they look toward Yemen when they fast, and they pray five times a day.
We know that Muslims also pray five times a day facing Mecca. (The Ka’aba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, where pilgrims go yearly, is a black cube; a cube is made up of six identical squares. In occult symbolism, the square means control, two or more squares mean absolute control; and a black square symbolises the knowledge of controlling the dark and negative energies. The pilgrims gather to worship the black cube, which is precisely aligned with the rising of the star Canopus, the cycles of the moon, and the summer and winter solstices.) Harranian fasting is also similar to that of Ramadan in Islam in the fact that they fast from before the sun rises until the sunset, just as the Muslims do during the days of Ramadan. Still another historian, Ibn al-Juzi, described the Harranian fasting during this month. He said they concluded their fasting by sacrificing animals and presenting alms to the poor. We also find these features in Islamic fasting today.

Mythological roots concerning Harran’s celebration of the moon explained the disappearance of the moon after it joined with the star cluster, Pleiades, in the constellation of Taurus. It occurred during the third week of March. The people prayed to the moon, pleading for its return to the city of Harran, but the moon refused to return. This is thought to be the explanation for why they fasted during this month. The moon did not promise to return to Harran, but it did promise to return to Deyr Kadi, a sanctuary near one of the gates of Harran. So after this month, the worshippers of Sin, the moon, went to Deyr Kadi to celebrate and to welcome the return of the moon. According to Ibn al-Nadim, the historian mentioned earlier, the Harranians called the feast al-Feter, the same name by which the feast of Ramadan is named.

In addition to the feast during Ramadan, the Harranians had five prayers which they repeated day and night. Each had to be preceded by ablutions, which were ceremonial washings. The same system of five prayers each day, preceded by ablutions, was embraced by Mohammed.

The fasting of Ramadan spread from Harran into Arabia. This may have occurred after the occupation of Nabonidus, the Babylonian king, to the north of Arabia, around the year 552 BCE, during his stay in the city of Teima. Nabonidus was from the city of Harran. He was a fanatic worshipper of the moon, Sin, and his mother was a priest of Sin. He disagreed with the priests of Babylonia who considered the god Marduk as the chief of the gods of Babylonia. Nabonidus was eager to spread the worship of Sin, the moon, as the main deity. So he left his son in charge of Babylonia and went to live in Teima in North Arabia.

In pre-Islamic times, Ramadan became a pagan Arabian ritual and was practiced by the pagan Arabians with the same features and characteristics as the Islamic Ramadan.

Ramadan was known and practiced by the pagan Arabians before Islam. Al-Masudi says that Ramadan received its name because of the warm weather during that month.

The pagan Arabians in the pre-Islamic Jahiliyah period fasted in the same way Muslims fasted, as originally directed by Mohammed. Pagan Arabian fasting included abstinence from food, water, and sexual contact — the same as practiced by Islam. Their fasting also was done in silence. There was to be no talking, not even for a short period of time such as one day, or a longer period of time of a week or more. The Qur’an points to the same kind of fasting when, in Surah 19, it describes ‘God’ instructing the ‘Virgin’ Mary to say that she vowed to fast before ‘God’, which also meant she couldn’t speak to anyone. The Arabian practice of keeping silent during the fast noticeably influenced the customs of the Qur’an. We are told that Abu Baker approached a woman among the pagan worshippers in Medina. He found her fasting, including abstinence from speaking. Fasting was a serious matter for the Arabians, enforced with laws requiring severe penalties for failing to abstain from talking. Ramadan in Islam is a continuation of this kind of fasting.

Mohammed imposed on his followers many religious rituals from the two tribes of Medina who backed him in subduing the Arabians to Islam. Among such rituals was Ramadan.

It seems that Ramadan was practiced in many cities in North Arabia where Nabonidus, the Harranian king of Babylonia, ruled. One of the cities he occupied was Yathrib, which later became al-Medina. Mohammed imposed Ramadan fasting, as well as the ritual of praying toward Mecca instead of Jerusalem, after he emigrated to al-Medina, whose Arabian tribes used to pray toward Mecca, just as it seems they used to fast during Ramadan. Mohammed adjusted his ceremonies to fit the religious rituals and customs of Oas and Khazraj, the two tribes from al-Medina who backed Mohammed in his wars against the Arabians. One of their ceremonies was a weekly religious feast each Friday. Mohammed made this day the religious day of Islam.

Ramadan is not true fasting, because the participants still eat their meals during the night. Since the ritual allows them to eat while it is dark, they simply eat a large meal in the late evening and wake up early in the morning for another big meal. In other words, they simply change the time of their meals from daylight to darkness.

The hypocrisy continues during Ramadan in the kind of meals they eat. Rather than simple meals which they have during the year, they arrange for elaborate meals, spending sometimes triple or more money on food during Ramadan than in any other month. In reality, it’s not true fasting, but an excuse for eating extra in the month they claim to be fasting.

The Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar, and months begin when the first crescent of a new moon is sighted. Since the Islamic lunar calendar year is 11 to 12 days shorter than the solar year and contains no intercalation, Ramadan migrates throughout the seasons.

Other pagan feasts

Yule, Cuidle, Alban Arthan, Midwinter, or the Winter Rite is celebrated during the winter solstice on December 19th to 23rd. Yule is a winter festival historically celebrated primarily in northern Europe, but now celebrated in many other countries in various forms.

Imbolc, Brigit, Brigid’s Day, Candlemas, Bride’s Day or Brigantia is celebrated February 1st and 2nd (alternative celebrations are on February 2nd to 7th). Imbolc is one of the four principal festivals of the Irish calendar, celebrated among Gaelic people and some other Celtic cultures, either at the beginning of February or at the first local signs of spring. Most commonly, it is celebrated on February 2nd, since this is the cross-quarter day on the solar calendar, halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Originally dedicated to the goddess Brigid.

Ostara, Earrach, Alban Eilir, Lady Day or Festival of Trees is celebrated during Spring Equinox on March 20th to 23rd. Ostara is a modern Neo-pagan festival. It is loosely based on several feasts which were celebrated around Spring Equinox. The festival Ostara is characterised by the rejoining of the Mother Goddess and her lover-consort-son, who spent the winter months in death. Other variations include the young god regaining strength in his youth after being born at Yule, and the goddess returning to her maiden aspect.

Beltane, Beltaine or May Day is celebrated on May 1st. Alternative celebrations are sometimes held on May 4th to 10th. The name is derived from the Gaelic and Irish names for the month of May. As an ancient Gaelic festival, Beltaine was celebrated in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. There were similar festivals held at the same time in the other Celtic countries of Wales, Brittany and Cornwall. Beltaine and Samhain were the leading terminal dates of the civil year in Ireland, although the latter festival was the most important. The festival survives in folkloric practices in the Celtic Nations and the diaspora, and has experienced a degree of revival in recent decades. The name Bel-tane or Bel-tine means ‘Bel’s Fire’ or Baal’s Fire.

Traditionally, Beltane would be the night on which the old hearth fires were extinguished and the new were kindled from the Bel fire. These fires were placed on the top of hills and produced a chain of beacons which ran across the land. Cattle would be driven between the fires and people would leap over them to ensure fertility for the coming season.

In times past, the maypole would be central to the Beltane celebrations — a tall pole surmounted by a circlet of flowers, which would descend as the ribbons were wound tight by the dancers. This symbol of sexual union would be hard to mistake. Those who had not yet found a partner would seek one at the Beltane rites, wearing green to announce their intentions.

According to the Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia (6th ed., 2009), “The Maypole dance derives from spring rituals glorifying the phallus… maypole dances are a relic of ancient Greek rituals that celebrated the life-death-rebirth of Isis-Ishtar-Iananna.”

Midsummer, Litha, Samradh, Alban Hefin, Aerra Litha or Mother Night is celebrated during the summer solstice in June 19th to 23rd. European midsummer-related festivals, traditions, and celebrations are pre-Christian in origin and have been superficially christianised. Some celebrate in a manner as close as possible to how they believe the Ancient Germanic pagans observed the tradition, while others observe the feast with rituals culled from numerous other unrelated sources, Germanic culture being only one of the sources used.

Lughnasadh Lammas, First Harvest, Bread Harvest or the Festival of First Fruits is celebrated August 1st and 2nd or alternatively between August 3rd and 10th. Lughnasadh was one of the four main festivals of the medieval Irish calendar. The early Celtic calendar was based on the lunar, solar, and vegetative cycles, so the actual calendar date in ancient times may have varied. Lughnasadh marked the beginning of the harvest season, the ripening of first fruits, and was traditionally a time of community gatherings, market festivals, horse races and reunions with distant family and friends. In Celtic mythology, the Lughnasadh festival is said to have been begun by the god Lugh, as a funeral feast and games commemorating his foster-mother, Tailtiu, who died of exhaustion after clearing the plains of Ireland for agriculture. On mainland Europe and in Ireland, many people continue to celebrate the festival with bonfires and dancing.

Mabon, Foghar, Alban Elfed, Harvest Home, Second Harvest, Fruit Harvest or Wine Harvest is celebrated during the Autumn Equinox September 19th through 23rd. Mabon was not an authentic ancient festival either in name or date. There is little evidence that the Autumn Equinox was celebrated in Celtic countries, while all that is known about Anglo-Saxon customs of that time was that September was known as haleg-monath or ‘holy month’. The name Mabon has only been applied to the Neo-pagan festival of the Autumn Equinox very recently; the term was invented by Aidan Kelly (an American academic, poet and influential figure in the Neo-pagan religion of Wicca) in the 1970s as part of a religious studies project.

The solar calender

The occultists are obsessed with numerology and astrology, so it’s important to know that the solar calendar is divided up into four 13-week sections (Winter Solstice, then Spring Equinox, then Summer Solstice, and finally Autumnal Equinox). The number 13 is important because the occultist assigns ‘6’ to represent man, ‘7’ to represent the number of spiritual perfection. Climbing ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ from 6 to 7 is striving for godhood, and sums up to ‘13’ to represent the state of rebellion, apostasy, defection, corruption, disintegration and revolution.

There are eight major nights of human sacrifice in the occult calendar, which fall on the days they have set aside as ‘holidays’: Dec 21st, Feb 1st, March 21st, May 1st, June 21st, Aug 1st, Sept 21st, Oct 29th to 31st (Samhain/Halloween being the most important). The other four nights are only observed (the equinoxes/solstices), and if you add six weeks to each you’ll get the sacrifice night. Add seven weeks to sacrifice night and you get the next equinox/solstice:

calender

There are also ‘non-holidays’ that are part of the sacrifice nights, which include the United States presidential inauguration day on January 20th. The president’s inauguration day used to be set at March 4th, until the Twentieth Amendment was passed, which changed the date.

Another addition includes the 13 days after the Imbolg sacrifice, known as Valentine’s Day. Another one is Independence Day (13 days after Litha/June 21). These dates were placed to fit into the 6-7-13 pattern.
They allow this circular repetition of holidays to observe a ritual pattern.

Semiramis (or any goddess who represents Semiramis) is believed to go through the same cycles of life over and over. She is believed to be three different forms, referred to as the ‘Triple Goddess’. These three forms are: Fertility goddess, aka the Maiden; the Earth Mother, aka the Mother; and the old lady, aka the Crone. These forms are believed to be based on the phases of the moon, which is why we get concepts such as the ‘moon’ goddess.

The concept of relating women to the moon comes from the yin and yang theory. The woman’s power exists as a force called yin, in which her emotions and moods cycle with the moon. Her hormones make her alter her being more fluidly, as she progresses through the cycles of the moon.
Conversely, the man goes through single day cycles of mood and emotion, referred to as yang, which ties to the daily sun rising and lowering. They believe the moon, as the goddess, complements the sun, as the god.

Semiramis represents the fertility goddess around Easter, then matures into the mother figure on May Day, and eventually gets older and turns into the old lady at Halloween/Samhain. When she is the old lady at Halloween/Samhain, there is the male god that takes over in the worshipping rites. This occurs when Semiramis gives birth to to her son, Tammuz — her version of the Immaculate Conception — on December 25th. Tammuz is considered the stag god, and he plays his role in the winter months while everyone eagerly waits for the rebirth of the goddess Semiramis. The idea of a revolving ritual is reflected by the Wheel of the Year:

Wheel of the Year

Wheel of the Year

This wheel depicts the annual cycle of pagan festivals (referred to above as the 8 quarter days and the cross quarter days that lie in between). The Wicca follows the same wheel, but refers to the festivals as ‘sabbats’.

The concept is that of a cyclical pattern followed throughout the year. There are ties to the sun’s death and rebirth through the equinox and solstices. The death and rebirth cycle focuses on the duality of god and goddess (see reference above with the god, Tammuz/Nimrod taking over for 6 months of winter, then the goddess/Semiramis for summer 6 months). The goddess gives birth to the god at Yule; god grows in power at Vernal equinox and impregnates goddess at Beltane (May Day), he then peaks at Summer solstice, and power fades as he goes to underworld at Samhain. He takes the goddess’ fertility with him to the underworld, until she can come back and repeat the cycle when she gives birth to the god at Yule.

In the Scriptures, no one is recorded to have kept a feast or held a great banquet on his birthday. It is only sinners who make great rejoicings over the day in which they were born into this world. — Catholic Encyclopedia, 1908 edition, Vol. 3, p. 724, ‘Natal Day’

(This refers to the Israelites, Yahweh’s chosen people. The Gentiles, who worshipped pagan gods, celebrated their birthdays with feasts (Genesis 40:20).)

 

(see The Great Deception, Shroud of Turin, Keeping the Sabbath holy and What are graven images?)

Shroud of Turin

Standard

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

Much has been said and written about the alleged linen burial cloth of the Messiah — the Shroud of Turin. But how ‘holy’ is this garment? Over the years, it has sparked debate over its authenticity. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathederal of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, although its origins are ‘unknown’.

“You shall not make for yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them, nor worship them; for I, Yahweh your Father, Am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me. And showing mercy to thousands of those that love Me, and keep My commandments.” Exodus 20:4-6

This is the second commandment given to us by Yahweh, so why would the Messiah, Yahshua, always given to His Father’s will, leave behind an image of Himself for us to worship?

Veneration of the Shroud

Veneration of the Shroud

So if the garment is a lie, what is its purpose, and what are its true origins? How could it have been faked?

“Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic spirits that perform witchcraft, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of Yahweh Almighty. ‘Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.'” Revelation 16:13-15

“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an Angel of Light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as Servants of Righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” 2 Corinthians 11:14-15

We forget that Satan was once an Archangel and has the ability to perform miracles, as do his angels. The shroud is a fake, created by means of witchcraft to us to fool us into idol worship. The shroud is really a symbolic image of the pagan god Jesus Christ, who was created by Roman Emperor Constantine.

There is even a medal of the ‘holy face’ taken from the shroud’s image:

medal hf

On one side the medal features a replica of the face image from the Shroud of Turin and the inscription: Illumina, Domine, Vultum Tuum Super Nos, (May, O Lord, the light of Thy countenance shine upon us). The reverse side of the medal is an image of a radiant ‘Sacred Host’ (a sunburst, depicting sun worship), the monogram of the ‘Holy Name’ (IHS — which is Greek for Ihsous, the name of the pagan god Jesus created by Roman Emperor Constantine), and the inscription: Mane Nobiscum, Domine (Stay with us, O Lord).

The ‘Hail Mary’ and the ‘Glory Be’

The Catholic Church has a prayer, ‘Hail Mary’, taught to its followers, deifying Astarte, Satan’s human wife in the pre-flood world, and mother of Tammuz/Jesus (worshipped by Christians as the pagan goddess Mary, whom worshippers are led to believe is Miriam, Yahshua’s mother). In the prayer, Mary is referred to as being ‘full of grace’.

The only mention of ‘full of grace’ in the Scriptures is reserved for Yahshua:

“The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His Glory, the Glory of the one and only Son, Who came from the Father, full of Grace and truth.” John 1:14

A literal translation of the TEXTUS RECEPTUS Greek (The Interlinear Bible, Jay P. Green, Sr) reads:

“And entering, the Angel said to her, ‘Hail, one having received grace! …… You are blessed among women!'” Luke 1:28

Miriam was the blessed recipient of Yahweh’s Grace, but only her Son, Yahshua, was born without sin, and, therefore, full of Grace. Miriam was born of an earthly father and so inherited the original sin.

“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.” Romans 5:12

Yahshua’s Father is Yahweh (Isaiah 7:14) and He was born without sin and never sinned, throughout His Life.

“Yahweh made Him Who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of Yahweh.” 2 Corinthians 5:21

“For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to empathise with our weaknesses, but we have One Who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet He did not sin.” Hebrews 4:15

There is also no mention in the Scriptures of Miriam being assumed into heaven. This is another lie from the church.

The ‘Glory Be’ is another misleading prayer, as it glorifies Yahweh as a TRINITY, instead of ONE true Almighty Creator.

“I Am the Alpha and the Omega,” says Yahweh, “Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8

The only prayer given to us is the ‘Our Father’.

“This, then, is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven,
holy be Your Name,
Your Kingdom come,
Your Will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one:
For Yours is the Kingdom, and the Power,
and the Glory, for ever.'” Matthew 6:9-13

The rosary, the scapular, sacred heart, divine mercy and the ‘saints’:

“Yahshua answered, ‘I Am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'” John 14:6

All religions of the world, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Quaker, Amish, Mormonism, Jainism, indigenous religions… worship the devil, fallen angels and demons. Their priests, nuns and monks are all witches who practice witchcraft and divination, which is forbidden (Deuteronomy 18:10-11, 14). The masses and services performed in their churches, mosques, temples and synagogues are Satanic rituals.

Whenever one is baptised and confirmed by these witches, the anointing comes from hell, not from heaven. They do not have the power to cast out demons or cleanse one’s house. When you invite them to cast out demons, they invoke evil spirits and make their grip on the victim stronger. It may appear as though the person has been delivered, but it’s just a trick.

The only way one can be delivered of demonic possession is by invoking the Names of the Living God, Almighty Yahweh, and His Son Yahshua. All sacrifices, including blood sacrifices, are forbidden. In the Book of Isaiah, it is written that Yahshua, the Messiah, was to be the final blood sacrifice (Isaiah 53). No other sacrifice would be required or accepted after Him (Isaiah 66:3-4). Any animals slaughtered and offered as blood sacrifices for cleansing rituals are being offered to fallen angels and demons.

When you invite these witches to cleanse your house, they use candles, salt (which are crystals) and ‘holy water’, and invoke evil spirits to invite them into your home. Witches use candles, salt and water to perform rituals, and prayer beads called the ‘witch’s ladder’.

Rosary beads or prayer beads are used by Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Bahá’ís and Catholics, among other religions. Their origin dates far back, to the beginning of pagan worship, when mankind began worshipping fallen angels as pagan gods, before the Great Flood. Islamic prayer beads, called Misbaha or Tasbih, usually have 99 or 33 beads. Buddhist and Hindus use the Japa Mala which usually has 108 beads, or 27 which are counted four times. Bahá’í prayer beads consist of either 95 beads or 19 beads strung with the addition of five beads below. The Sikh Mala also has 108 beads.  Roman Catholics use the Rosary (Latin rosarium, meaning ‘rose garden’) with 54 and additional five beads whereas Eastern Orthodox Christians use a knotted Rosary with 100 knots, although ‘prayer ropes’ with 50 or 33 knots can also be used. Although Anglo-Catholics have used the Dominican rosary since the 19th century, in the 1980s Reverend Lynn Bauman from the Episcopal Church in the United States of America introduced a Rosary for Anglicans with 33 beads.

Prayer beads, or prayer rosaries, are really another form of the ‘witch’s ladder’, a knotted rope or cord used to count repetitions during a spell or ritual. Praying with beads is a spiritual practice with a long history in most of the world’s religions. — Sacred Mists Shoppe by Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone

The Scriptures warns us against use of prayer beads:

“And when you pray, do not repeat the same words over and over as the Gentiles do, for they think they will be heard for their much speaking.” Matthew 6:7

The repetitive prayers said on these beads are incantations to invoke evil spirits.

The rosary, scapular, religious medals and crosses are worn as talismans and amulets (cursed and pagan symbols), out of ‘devotion’ or for ‘protection’. However, the only protection you need is faith in Yahweh, Yahshua and the Angels and Archangels.

And holy water and holy/anointing oil is a sham. The shell used to hold this water in Catholic churches is a solar symbol, denoting sun worship. The shell is an occult symbol for the universe and for moving across the zodiac.

Only the anointing oil used by the priests of Yahweh — Levite priests, those consecrated to the Most High — is holy.

Devotion to the ‘sacred heart’ has its origins in pagan worship:

sun-h1
Human sacrifice, particularly by offering a victim’s heart to the sun god, was commonly practiced, as was bloodletting. — Encyclopedia Britannica online (Aztec)

As seen on the stone carving from Cozumel, the pagan Aztecs/Mayans of Mexico would cut the heart out of a living victim and offer it as a sacrifice to the sun god, in this case, Kukulcan/Quetzalcoatl, also known as the Feathered Serpent.

The image of the ‘sacred heart’ is a sunburst:

sacredheart

The image of the ‘divine mercy’ is a pyramid with an All-Seeing Eye (occult symbolism):

chaplet-of-the-divine-mercy

The halo on the image is also a sunburst, denoting sun worship, the same as the halos on the images of ‘saints’.

Only Yahweh knows what is hidden in our hearts, therefore, only He has the authority to make a man a saint, the church has no such authority. Yahshua has told us He is the only way to heaven and to the Almighty, so we should not be deceived into praying to or through His mother Miriam, His father Joseph, ‘saints’ or our ancestors.

There are those who have claimed to have seen visions of the Virgin Mary (Astarte/Isis), ‘saints’ and Jesus (Tammuz/Anti-Messiah), who told them to offer prayers to them, and gave them the rosary, scapular or certain prayers or asked them to make medals of devotion. These are evil spirits, who shape-shift and take on human forms, as are dreams and visions of dead people — after one dies it is impossible to return to earth in spirit form or communicate with the living (see Where do we go when we die?).

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from Yahweh, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1

Miriam is DEAD, therefore, it is IMPOSSIBLE for her to speak to us or hear our prayers.

We should not keep any graven images.

This includes holograms, pictures, paintings, carvings, engravings, drawings, dolls, statues, statuettes, figurines, sculptures, puppets/marionettes, stuffed animals or other toys, slippers/shoes with faces, masks, hats shaped like animals, caps with faces, bags with faces, bags shaped like animals, fox stoles, robots, mannequins, ventriloquist dummies, images on stained glass windows, wax figures, candles, coins, matryoshka, tapestry, museum dummies, piggy banks, cartoons, animated films, sarcophagii, paper cut-outs of animals or people, cardboard cut-outs of animals or people, lamps shaped like animals or people, mugs with faces, cakes shaped like animals or people, human topiary, animal topiary, candlesticks shaped like animals or people, stuffed and mounted game, sleeping bags shaped like animals, sleeping bags with faces, ships shaped like sea or land creatures, totem poles, mascots, costumes designed like animals or people or cartoon characters, rubber ducks used in baths, scarecrows, hot air balloons, carousel rides, bouncy castles, garden gnomes, dodgem/bumper cars… made in the image of ANYTHING in heaven, on earth, or the waters below.

Many people also keep and revere pictures, posters and statues/statuettes of their gods, celebrities, man-made ‘saints’, religious and political leaders, and Angels. This is WRONG.

Drawings, pictures and illustrations for the purpose of educating, informing and enlightening (including pop-up books for children) are permitted, but NOT in the Scriptures and NEVER of Holy Spiritual Beings.
You may think it perfectly innocent to buy and keep any of these items in your homes, but remember: It is FORBIDDEN. If you have any graven images in your homes, offices or other business premises: BURN THEM WITH FIRE.

Dishes, coasters, table mats, calendars, cards, postcards and knick knacks that depict these graven images should also be destroyed.
It is alright to embellish clothes, cushion covers, bedcovers, oven mitts, potholders, tea cosies, aprons, table linen, table mats, wall hangings, rugs, curtains, carpets, decorative coverings, etc, with animals, birds, fish, flowers, trees, etc, and take and keep pictures of loved ones — family and friends — as long as we do NOT idolise them.
We should not form images in our minds of Yahweh, Yahshua, Archangels or Angels when we pray or meditate, for, if we do, evil spirits can shape-shift into these images and give us misleading information.

“For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
