Mark of the Beast 3 – Ivy

Ivy is a symbol of the mark of the beast as it was used to represent the false christs as well as representing the concept of man ‘evolving’ into godhood or ‘knowing good and evil…ye shall not surely die…

The ivy symbol was used to represent the false christs because they are a counterfeitclick here of Messiah Yahshua.

Joh 15:1  I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

Joh 15:5  I am the vine, ye are the branches : He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

3 Maccabees Chapter 2 verses 27-30

27: He (Philopater/Ptolemy IV)* proposed to inflict public disgrace upon the Jewish community, and he set up a stone on the tower in the courtyard with this inscription:

28: “None of those who do not sacrifice shall enter their sanctuaries, and all Jews shall be subjected to a registration involving poll tax and to the status of slaves. Those who object to this are to be taken by force and put to death;

29: those who are registered are also to be branded on their bodies by fire with the ivy-leaf symbol of Dionysus, and they shall also be reduced to their former limited status.”

30: In order that he might not appear to be an enemy to all, he inscribed below: “But if any of them prefer to join those who have been initiated into the mysteries, they shall have equal citizenship with the Alexandrians.”

*3 Maccabees 1:10 records that Philopater desired to enter the holy of holies…2 Thessalonians 2:4 speaks of the Antichrist desiring to do the same thing.  This links Ptolemy IV with the man of sin.

The above coin depicts Ptolemy IV with an image of the trident.  The trident is a symbol of the transformation/born again experience.  It was the symbol of Poseidon (the beast from the sea.)

Poseidon-The horse, the dolphin (the symbol of the calm sea) and the pine-tree, with wreaths* of which the Isthmian victors were crowned, were sacred to him.
By far the most famous of his festivals was that celebrated every alternate year on the isthmus of Corinth, at which the “Isthmian games” were held {More on this below}. Here a colossal statue of him was set up in bronze by the Greeks after their victory over the Persians.

The triden of Shiva is another representation of Poseidon…In Hinduism it is associated with transformation…

The shin is associated with 3 vav’s…ie 666click here.

Here we see Zeus in the forefront and an image of Ptolemy IV in the background giving the idea that Ptolemy IV was ‘Zeus on earth.’  On the back is the inscription of Ptolemy Basileos (Kingdom of Ptolemy) with the image of an eagle/phoenixclick here which again points to the false resurrection/born again experience.

Ivy

The Eerdmans Bible Dictionary, Myers, 1987, p. 284, “DIONYSUS”:

Dionysus with wreath of ivy, notice the similarity in shape to the heart symbol (more on this below).

2Ma 6:4  For the temple was filled with riot and revelling by the Gentiles, who dallied with harlots, and had to do with women within the circuit of the holy places, and besides that brought in things that were not lawful.

2Ma 6:5  The altar also was filled with profane things, which the law forbiddeth.

2Ma 6:6  Neither was it lawful for a man to keep sabbath days or ancient fasts, or to profess himself at all to be a Jew.

2Ma 6:7  And in the day of the king’s birth every month*** {every month not in Bishops, Douay-Rheims or Geneva translation} they were brought by bitter constraint to eat of the sacrifices; and when the fast of Bacchus was kept, the Jews were compelled to go in procession** to Bacchus, carrying ivy*.

*Geneva Bible translates as garlands of ivy

Bishops Bible translates as wearing ivy

New Jerusalem Bible translates ivy wreaths

Douay-Rheims translates as crowned with ivy

Here we see that men were forced to take upon the mark of Dionysus/Bacchus.

Ivy

ı̄´vi (κισσός, kissós): The only mention of the word in all the sacred writings is in 2 Macc 6:7 in connection with the oppression of the Jews by Antiochus Epiphanes: “On the day of the king’s birth every month they were brought by bitter constraint to eat of the sacrifices; and when the feast of Bacchus (Dionysus) was kept, the Jews were compelled to go in procession to Dionysus, carrying ivy,” this plant (Hedera helix)* being sacred to the Greek god of wine and of the culture of the vine (compare Eur. Bacchae, passim). It was of ivy or of pine that the “corruptible crown” of the famous 1sthmian games was made (1Co_9:25).

1Co 9:25  But everyone striving controls himself in all things. Then those truly that they may receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.

Notice here that those who were victors in the Isthmian games were given a crown which was supposed to promise them immortality.  Shaul says this is a crown of corruption.  The mystery religions and the mark of the beast promise immortality but in reality they offer the same thing as the tree of knowledge…death.

Robertson Word Pictures

A corruptible crown (phtharton stephanon). Stephanos (crown) is from stephō, to put around the head, like the Latin corona, wreath or garland, badge of victory in the games. In the Isthmian games it was of pine leaves {the pine tree if linked to the Temple as well as the pineal gland…more on this below}, earlier of parsley, in the Olympian games of the wild olive. “Yet these were the most coveted honours in the whole Greek world” (Findlay).

*Hedera is a latin word meaning ivy.  The word helix comes from the Greek word ἕλιξ which is a type of space curve, i.e. a smooth curve in three-dimensional space. It is characterized by the fact that the tangent line at any point makes a constant angle with a fixed line called the axis. Examples of helixes are coil springs and the handrails of spiral staircases & deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).  The symbol of Bacchus is 3 leaved ivy.  Could this be a veiled reference to the future Triple Helixclick here structure of DNA?  More on this in the future, Yah willing.

*The plant is considered invasive and destructive in parts of Australia and the United States. Its sale and cultivation is banned in several places.  It is a weed…a tare…The Scriptures speak of two seeds.  The seed of the woman (wheat) versus the seed of the serpent (tares).  This ivy brand is a picture of the seed of the serpent. Bacchus is even specifically called the ‘seed of the serpent.’

The Biology of Kundalini – The Fire of Life – Jana Dixon

Musings on the Caduceus

Interestingly the word pineal stems from the word pineus for pinecone although the pineal gland is about the size of a grain of rice. The Thyrsus is a staff tipped with a pinecone and twined with ivy, carried by Dionysus, his revelers, and satyrs. Dionysus represents the God of the metamorphic process of spiritual death and rebirth; the most mysterious human experience ever to be encountered. Dionysus must have been the first God of Kundalini for he carries a Thyrsus. Whether it signifies the pineal gland or not, it is obvious that the pinecone represents the “flowering” of consciousness. The pinecone is reminiscent of the thousand petalled crown chakra–the Sahasrara, and the ivy represents the double-helical flow of kundalini around the central channel of the spine–the sushumna. This symbol is perhaps a more ancient version of the staff of Hermes–the Caduceus, which used in alchemical and esoteric schools and now the medical industry.

The caduceus is synonymous with ivyclick here

Kundalini is the belief that there is a serpent encoiled at the base of the spine which can be meditation and ‘spiritual’ acts, causing it to climb the spine where it reaches your pineal gland and opens your ’3rd eye.’   Interestingly, the word for spine and tree are the same.

The serpent rises up the spine to the pineal gland which was represented in ancient cultures as the pine cone….the fruit of the pine tree.

Staff of Osiris
Staff of BacchusKundalini is linked to a tree…the tree of knowledge of good and evil where partaking of the fruit ‘opens the eyes’ to ‘godhood.’Gen 3:5  for God knows that in the day you eat of it, even your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as God, knowing good and evil.
Gen 3:6  And the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and the tree was desirable to make one wise. And she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
Gen 3:7  And the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed leaves of the fig tree, and made girdles for themselves.

Ivy is an Evergreen

Hedera (English name ivy, plural ivies) is a genus of 15 species of climbing or ground-creeping evergreen woody plants in the family Araliaceae,

The common ivy (Hedera Helix) while not a tree is a sacred plant of Wicca/Witchcraft, revered of old by the ancients as much as it is today by contemporaries.  Its most common association is with the Holly tree, the “Holly and the Ivy” being used extensively worldwide as a Yuletide decoration.*

*Ivy, Bacchus/Dionysus and the story of the Maccabees is strongly associated with Christmasclick here .  This will be detailed further throughout this study.

According to “The Green Mountain Gardener,” Dr. Leonard Perry, ancient pagans fashioned ivy “into wreaths and garlands for decorations during the winter months.” Ivy had close ties with the Roman god of wine, Bacchus. Holly, meanwhile, figured prominently in the Roman celebration of the Saturnalia (upon which the Christmas holiday was directly modeled), as it was considered sacred to Saturnclick here.

Ivy was in high esteem among the ancients and its leaves formed the poet’s crown.  The ivy was dedicated to the Roman god Bacchus (the Greek god Dionysus, see “The Vine”), the God of Intoxication who is often depicted wearing a wreath of ivy and grapevines.  He is also depicted holding a chalice {‘holy grail’ this will be discussed in more detail in a future study, Yah willing} and carrying a thyrsus (a wand) which was also entwined with ivy and vine leaves.  Ivy leaves were thought to prevent intoxication and the binding of the brow with ivy was seen as a counterbalance to the vine.  Old writers tell us that the effects of intoxication by wine are removed if a handful of ivy leaves are bruised and gently boiled in wine and drunk.  In former days old English taverns bore a sign of an ivy bush over their doors, this to indicate the excellence of the liquor supplied within, hence the old saying “A good wine needs no bush”.

Through its connection with the vine and nature, the ivy is also associated with one of the most popular of the ancient Egyptian gods Osiris, God of the Sun, Agriculture and Health.  His queen was Isis who was also his wife and sister.  As Osiris ruled the sun, Isis represented the moon and was believed to have taught the Egyptians the arts of agriculture and medicine.

Ivy is known by the folk name Gort.  Its gender is Feminine.  Its planet ruler is Saturn*.  Its element association is Water.  Its deities associated are with:  Osiris, Dionysus, Bacchus and Persephone.

Astrologically ivy people (i.e. those people born in September)

*This is important to note.  Saturnclick here is connected with Bacchus as will be seen below in more detail.  Saturnalia is the origin of Christmas and Saturn in Hebrew = 666.  The main symbol of Saturn was the hexagram.  Here we see the hexagram which is strongly linked to the mark of the beast being connected to ivy which is a symbol of the mark as well.  Ivy is connected to the symbol of the crossclick here as well as will be seen in more detail below and the cross is synonymous to the hexagramclick here .

The Dionysia, ancient Greece

The Rural or Lesser Dionysia (late December, early January) were celebrated in the month of Poseidon. This the most ancient festival of all, when even slaves enjoyed full freedom. There were dramatic contests; Aristotle claimed (Poet. 1449a) that comedy was born in the Rural Dionysia. The peasants would assail the bystanders as they rode by in wagons. According to Plutarch (3.527D), there was a procession of the carriers of a jar of wine and a vine, with someone leading a he-goat**, followed by the Kanêphoros (Basket-bearer) who carried a basket of raisins. Then came the carriers of an erect, wooden phallus-pole, decorated with ivy and fillets*, and finally the singer of the Phallikon (Phallic Song), which was addressed to ‘Phalês’.

*The allusions to Christmas/Saturnaliaclick here are very strong.  Celebrated in late December.  Slaves were set free.  Decorated phallus/obelisk/tree.  Over and over again, Christmas continues to pop up in association with the mark of the beast subject.  Christmas is Saturnalia, a yearly rehearsal of the return of the ‘golden age of Saturn’ ie the kingdom of antichrist.  The return of the nephilim (god-men).  The ivy is ‘hedera helix’…the triple helix.  The ‘evolution’ of mankind..homo noeticus.  More on this in a future study, Yah willing.

**He-goat.  This links Dionysus with Pan.

Above is an image of Pan with a wreath of ivy.

Pan – the hidden one

Two Babylons pg 119
Dionysus or Bacchus, in one of his transformations, was represented as Capricorn, the “goat-horned fish”; and there is reason to believe that it was in this very form that he had the name of Oannes. In this form in India, under the name “Souro,” that is evidently “the seed,” he is said to have done many marvellous things.

The reason for believing that Oannes, that was said to have been the first of the fabulous creatures that came up out of the sea and instructed the Babylonians, was represented as the goat-horned fish, is as follows: First, the name Oannes, as elsewhere shown, is just the Greek form of He-annesh, or “The man,” which is a synonym for the name of our first parent, Adam. Now, Adam can be proved to be the original of Pan, who was also called Inuus, which is just another pronunciation of Anosh without the article, which, in our translation of Genesis 5:7, is made Enos. This name, as universally admitted, is the generic name for man after the Fall, as weak and diseased. The o in Enos is what is called the vau, which sometimes is pronounced o, sometimes u, and sometimes v or w. A legitimate pronunciation of Enos, therefore, is just Enus or Enws, the same in sound as Inuus, the Ancient Roman name of Pan.
The name Pan itself signifies “He who turned aside.” As the Hebrew word for “uprightness” signifies “walking straight in the way,” so every deviation from the straight line of duty was Sin; Hata, the word for sin, signifying generically “to go aside from the straight line.” Pan, it is admitted, was the Head of the Satyrs–that is, “the first of the Hidden Ones,” for Satyr and Satur, “the Hidden One,” are evidently just the same word; and Adam was the first of mankind that hid himself.

In Hebrew, the only name that adds to 666 is Satur.

Num 13:13  of the tribe of Asher, Sethur סתור(mystery, hide) the son of Michael;

H5639

sethûr
BDB Definition:
Sethur = “hidden” סתוּר

The pagan god Saturn is spelled with the same Hebrew lettersclick here .

Saturn is a pagan code name for satan.  Freemason J.S. Ward wrote a book called Freemasonry and the Ancient gods where he speaks of Saturn being another name for satan.  Saturn was also called Baal.  Saturn is connected to the number 6.  Saturn is the 6th planet from the sun.  The Talisman of Saturn is a hexagram which is comprised of 3 pairs of triangles with their apexes touching with each pair representing 6 forming 666.  Saturn was the most important of the Titans (which equals 666 in Greek) and ruled during the ‘Golden Age’ which is a picture of the kingdom of antichrist.  Christmas derives from the feast of Saturnalia and is a yearly rehearsal of this antichrist kingdom.

Two Babylons pg 119

Pan is said to have loved a nymph called Pitho, or, as it is given in another form, Pitys (SMITH, “Pan”); and what is Pitho or Pitys but just the name of the beguiling woman, who, having been beguiled herself, acted the part of a beguiler of her husband, and induced him to take the step, in consequence of which he earned the name Pan, “The man that turned aside.” Pitho or Pitys evidently come from Peth or Pet, “to beguile,” from which verb also the famous serpent Python derived its name. This conclusion in regard to the personal identity of Pan and Pitho is greatly confirmed by the titles given to the wife of Faunus. Faunus, says Smith, is “merely another name for Pan.”  * In Chaldee the same letter that is pronounced P is also pronounced Ph, that is F, therefore Pan is just Faun.

Pitys turned into a pine tree to escape him.  This pine tree allusion is also connected with the mark of the beast/hidden one connection to Pan, as will be seen below.

Two Babylons pg 119-120

Now, the wife of Faunus was called Oma, Fauna, and Fatua, which names plainly mean “The mother that turned aside, being beguiled.” This beguiled mother is also called indifferently “the sister, wife, or daughter” of her
husband; and how this agrees with the relations of Eve to Adam, the reader does not need to be told.

Now, a title of Pan was Capricornus, or “The goat-horned” (DYMOCK, “Pan”), and the origin of this title must be traced to what took place when our first parent became the Head of the Satyrs–the “first of the Hidden ones.” He fled to hide himself; and Berkha, “a fugitive,” signifies also “a he-goat.” Hence the origin of the epithet Capricornus,
or “goat-horned,” as applied to Pan. But as Capricornus in the sphere is generally represented as the “Goat-fish,” if Capricornus represents Pan, or Adam, or Oannes, that shows that it must be Adam, after, through virtue of the metempsychosis, he had passed through the waters of the deluge: the goat, as the symbol of Pan, representing Adam, the first father of mankind, combined with the fish, the symbol of Noah, the second father of the human race; of both whom Nimrod, as at once Kronos, “the father of the gods,” and Souro, “the seed,” was a new incarnation. Among
the idols of Babylon, as represented in KITTO’S Illust. Commentary, we find a representation of this very Capricornus, or goat-horned fish; and Berosus tells us that the well known representations of Pan, of which Capricornus is a modification, were found in Babylon in the most ancient times. A great deal more of evidence might be adduced on this subject; but I submit to the reader if the above statement does not sufficiently account for
the origin of the remarkable figure in the Zodiac, “The goat-horned fish.”

Pan & the Pine tree
Pan is also often depicted with a crown of pine needles

“When Pan found the nymph Pitys unresponsive, he took pity on her and transformed her into his sacred tree, the pine tree. From then on, the nymph weeps every time the North Wind blows; her teardrops are the droplets of pine resin that dribble down each autumn of the year.”

Pan’s worship spread far beyond Greece into many neighbouring countries such as Egypt, and local equivalents of him seem to have appeared all over the world, either by diffusion or coincidence. Pan-like deities existed everywhere. In Greece there were rustic gods such as Aristaeus (flocks, agriculture, bee-keeping*, vineculture), Priapus (the same) and Silenus (vineculture and knowledge)**.

**Vineculture points to DNA and knowledge points to the tree of knowledge.

In Greek mythology, Silenus (in Greek, Σειληνός) was a companion and tutor to the wine god Dionysus. The plural Seleni (in Greek, Σειληνοί) usually refers to drunken followers of Dionysus.

Pan & Bees

*Pan was also the ‘god of bee keeping’.  This  is connected to the ancient mystery religions as well as the ‘Merovingian bloodline.’

Two Babylons pg 175

In this very character was Nimrod worshipped when he was deified. As the Sun-god he was regarded not only as the illuminator of the material world, but as the enlightener of the souls of men, for he was recognised as the revealer of “goodness and truth.” It is evident, from the Old Testament, not less than the New, that the proper and personal name of our Lord Jesus Christ is, “The Word of God,” as the Revealer of the heart and counsels of the Godhead. Now, to identify the Sun-god with the Great Revealer of the Godhead, while under the name of Mithra, he was exhibited in sculpture as a Lion; that Lion had a Bee represented between his lips (Fig. 42). The
bee between the lips of the sun-god was intended to point him out as “the Word”; for Dabar, the expression which signifies in Chaldee a “Bee,” signifies also a “Word”; and the position of that bee in the mouth leaves no doubt as to the idea intended to be conveyed. It was intended to impress the belief that Mithra (who, says Plutarch, was worshipped as Mesites, “The  Mediator”), in his character as Ouranos, “The Enlightener,” was no other than that glorious one of whom the Evangelist John says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God…In Him was life; and the life was THE
LIGHT OF MEN.” The Lord Jesus Christ ever was the revealer of the Godhead, and must have been known to the patriarchs as such; for the same Evangelist says, “No man hath seen God at any time: the only-begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared,” that is, He hath revealed “Him.” Before the Saviour came, the ancient Jews commonly spoke of the Messiah, or the Son of God, under the name of Dabar, or the “Word.” This will appear from a  consideration of what is stated in the 3rd chapter of 1st Samuel. In the first verse of that chapter
it is said, “The WORD of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision,” that is, in consequence of the sin of Eli, the Lord had not, for a long time, revealed Himself in vision to him, as He did to the prophets. When the Lord had called Samuel, this “vision” of the God of Israel was restored (though not to Eli), for it is said in the last verse (v 21), “And the Lord APPEARED again in Shiloh; for the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel by the WORD of the Lord.” Although the Lord spake to Samuel, this language implies more than speech, for it is said,  “The LORD appeared”–i.e., was seen. When the Lord revealed Himself, or was seen by Samuel, it is said that it was “by (Dabar) the Word of the Lord.” The “Word of the Lord” to be visible, must have been the personal “Word of God,” that is, Christ. *

* After the Babylonish captivity, as the Chaldee Targums or Paraphrases of the Old Testament show, Christ was commonly called by the title “The Word of the Lord.”click here
In these Targums of later Chaldee, the term for “The Word” is “Mimra”; but this word, though a synonym for that which is used in the Hebrew Scriptures, is never used there. Dabar is the word employed. This is so well recognised that, in the Hebrew translation of John’s Gospel in Bagster’s Polyglott, the first verse runs thus: “In the beginning was the Word (Dabar).”
This had evidently been a primitive name by which He was known; and therefore it is not wonderful that Plato should speak of the second person of his Trinity under the name of the Logos, which is just a translation of “Dabar,” or “the Word.” Now, the light of the wax-candle, as the light from Dabar, “the Bee,” was set up as the substitute of the light of Dabar, “the Word.” Thus the apostates turned away from the “True Light,” and set up a shadow in His stead. That this was really the case is plain; for, says Crabb, speaking of Saturn, “on his altars were placed wax-tapers lighted, because by Saturn men were reduced from the darkness of error to the light
of truth.” In Asiatic Greece, the Babylonian god was evidently recognised as the Light-giving “Word,” for there we find the Bee occupying such a position as makes it very clear that it was a symbol of the great Revealer. Thus we find Muller referring to the symbols connected with the
worship of the Ephesian Diana: “Her constant symbol is the bee, which is not otherwise attributed to Diana…The chief priest himself was called Essen, or the king-bee.” The character of the chief priest shows the character of the god he represented. The contemplar divinity of Diana,
the tower-bearing goddess, was of course the same divinity as invariably accompanied the Babylonian goddess: and this title of the priest shows that the Bee which appeared on her medals was just another symbol for her child, as the “Seed of the Woman,” in his assumed character, as Dabar, “The Word” that enlightened the souls of men. That this is the precise “Mystery” couched under the wax-candles burning on the altars of the Papacy, we have very remarkable evidence from its own formularies; for, in the very same place in which the “Mystery” of the wax-candle is spoken of, thus does Rome refer to the Bee, by which the wax is produced: “Forasmuch as we
do marvellously wonder, in considering the first beginning of this substance, to wit, wax-tapers, then must we of necessity greatly extol the original of Bees, for…they gather the flowers with their feet, yet the flowers are not injured thereby; they bring forth no young ones, but deliver
their young swarms through their mouths, like as Christ (for a wonderful example) is proceeded from His Father’s MOUTH.” *

Here it is evident that Christ is referred to as the “Word of God”; and how could any imagination ever have conceived such a parallel as is contained in this passage, had it not been for the equivoque [wordplay, double meaning] between “Dabar,” “the Bee,” and “Dabar,” “The Word.”
In a Popish work already quoted, the Pancarpium Marianum, I find the Lord Jesus expressly called by the name of the Bee. Re ferring to Mary, under the title of “The Paradise of Delight,” the author thus speaks: “In this Paradise that celestial Bee, that is, the incarnate Wisdom, did feed. Here it found that dropping honeycomb, with which the whole bitterness of the corrupted world has been turned into sweetness.” This blasphemously represents the Lord Jesus as having derived everything necessary to bless the world from His mother! Could this ever have come from the Bible? No. It must have come only from the source where the writer learned to call “the incarnate Wisdom” by the name of the Bee. Now, as the equivoque from which such a name applied to the Lord Jesus springs, is founded only on the Babylonian tongue, it shows whence his theology has come, and it proves also to demonstration that this whole prayer about the blessing
of wax-candles must have been drawn from a Babylonian prayer-book. Surely, at every step, the reader must see more and more the exactitude of the Divine name given to the woman on the seven mountains, “Mystery, Babylon the Great”!

Bees & DNA

Frans Kamp on the ‘Orion Queen’ {This subject of Orion is connected with Lupercalia and will be discussed in more detail in the section on Romulus and Remus}

The bee and the beehive are connected to Diana/Artemis/Hecate worship.  Hecate is depicted with snake feet and snakes for hair.  Dogs, the sacred animal of Hecate, were sacrificed to her in rituals during the dark phrase of the moon.  (Incidentally, Valentines day will fall on the dark phrase of this year 2010). The ancient Egyptian word and hieroglyph for goddess als means serpent and the hieroglyph for Sirius means tooth.  The Egyptian word for tooth also means dog and more specifically dog-god.  This connection between honey and the dog/sirius will be seen in more detail below.

Bees & the Merovingian bloodline

From J.R. Church’s Guardians of the Grail:

In the tomb of Childeric I, son of Merovee, a special set of 300 miniature golden bees were found.  Napoleon affixed these bees to his coronation robe.  The Mormons use the symbol of the bee and also hold to the doctrine that Yahshua of Nazareth married Mary Magdalene.  It is believed that the Merovingians used the bee symbol because of the connection to Samson.  Samson was known for the power that came from his long hair.  So too, the Merovingian kings were known as the long haired kings which claimed their hair was the source of their occult powers. King Merovee supposedly possessed magical powers and could heal by the laying on of hands and by touching the tassels on the bottom of their garments.  Here we see the Merovingians associating themselves with Samson and the tallit and tsitsit worn by ancient Israelites.

It was taught that the Merovee had two fathers.  Clodio, king of the Franks, and Neptune the beast from the sea.  It is also believed that Merovee claimed descent from Odin.  The Merovingians also claim descent from the Trojans whose founder was named Dardanus.  Dardanus was the son of Zeus.  Zeus was pictured as an eagle, but at other times as a serpent to whom offerings of honey were made.  J.R. Church connects this to Dan who had the insignia of the serpent as well as the eagle.  According to the book of 1 Maccabees 12:20-21 the Spartans were descendants of Abraham and brothers of the Jews in Israel at that time.  Josephus wrote that the letters sent to the Jews from the Spartans were foursquare; and the symbol is an eagle, with a dragon in its claws.  This is symbolism of Dan from which tribe Samson came.

During the Trojan – Spartan war the spartans used the ‘trojan horse’ to defeat the city of Troy.  Aeneas, a Trojan prince escaped the city and went to Italy, where his children, Romulus and Remus founded Rome.  Church states that over the centuries the Spartans migrated to Southern France and some of the Trojans migrated to Germany, Belgium and Northern France along the Danube river.  That area eventually became known as Austrasia in the province of Lorraine.  The lineage of the Merovingian kings, therefore, may have been rooted in the Trojans.

Tribe of Dan & the serpent seed

Guardians of the Grail pg 109

“Four symbols are used in the Bible concerning the Danites – a serpent, an eagle, a lion, and the bees.  In the story of Samons, we find the famous riddle of the bees who made honey in the carcass of a lion which had been killed by Samson.  the symbolic nature of the bees could represent the concept that the descendants of the tribe of Dan would one day try to bring about the destruction of the tribe of Judah, whose symbol was the lion, and from the carcass of the lion the tribe of Dan would attempt to produce the golden age of a world empire, symbolized by the honey.  The Merovingian claim of coming from the tribe of Judah (through Mary Magdalene and Jesus Christ) is not true.  The lie may have been advanced because the symbol of Judah was the lion.  However, I believe the Merovingians were from the tribe of Dan.”

Gen 49:16  Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.
Gen 49:17  Let Dan be a serpent on the way, a horned snake on the path that bites the horses’ heels, and its rider falls backward.

In the apocryphal writing of the Testament of Dan it states “I read in the book of Enoch, the Righteous, that your prince is satan.”

Guardians of the Grail pg 120

“Aside from the fact that the Spartans wore long hair as a symbol of their power (like Samson) there is a legend written about the son of Belus, king of the Spartans — in which is given the story of on named ‘Danaus,’ who arrived in Greece with his daughters by ship.  According to the legend his daughters called themselves Danades.  They introduced the cult of the mother goddess, which became the established religion of the Arcadians and developed over the years into the worship of Diana.”

The Holy Grail

John Gill commentary on Amos 5:26

the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves; or the star “your god” (q); meaning the same with Chiun or Saturn; perhaps the same with the star that fell from the air or sky*, mentioned by Sanchoniatho (r); which Astarte (Diana), the wife of Chronus or Saturn, is said to take and consecrate in Tyre; this they made for themselves, and worshipped as a deity.

*This is important to note in that it connects to the ‘Holy Grail’.

Holy Blood Holy Grail pg 297
Quoting from Perlesvaus pg. 359
“Well I know that many brave knights dwell with the Grail at Munsalvaesche.  Always when they ride out, as they often do, it is to seek adventure.  They do so for their sins, these templars, whether their reward be defeat or victory.  A valiant hose lives there, and I will tell you how they are sustained.  They live from a stone of purest kind.  If you know not know it, it shall here be named to you.  It is called lapsit exillis. By the power of that stone the phoenix burns to ashes, but the ashes give him life again.  Thus does the phoenix molt and change its plumage, which afterward is bright and shining and as lovely as before.  There never was a human so ill but that, if he on day sees that stone, he cannot die within the week that follows.  And in looks he will not fade.  His appearance wills tay the same as when the best years of his life began, and though he should see the stone for two hundred years, it will never change, save that his hair might perhaps turn gray.  Such power does the stone give a man that flesh and bones are at once made young again.  The stone is called the Grail.”click here

“Lapsit exillis might be a corruption of lapis ex caelis– ‘stone from the heavens.’ It might also be a corruption of lapsit ex caelis – ‘it fell from heaven’; or of lapis lapsus ex caelus- ‘a stone fallen from heaven; or, finally, of lapis elixir -the fabulous Philosopher’s Stone of alchemy.”…The Philosopher’s stone will need to be discussed in more detail in a future study, but it points to the ‘evolution of man’ into a ‘god.’  DNA is a stone, when it is mixed with the ’stone’ from heaven the ‘Holy Grail’ or transformation is attained. The return of the age of Saturn.  The age of Aquarius.  The golden age of the ‘gods.’

Guardians of the Grail pg 43-44

“Trevor Ravenscroft writes in the Cup of Destiny that Percival rides through the constellations of the zodiac in his quest for the golden cup.  His destination is Aries, where lies the castle of the Holy Grail.  According to the doctrine of the ancient mystery cult, as he enters the Grail castle, he is entering the mystery world of the human body, the brain.  It is there that ‘the stone of light’ resides.  The stone is supposedly the pineal gland, located at the base of the brain.  It is at the so-called ‘center of man’s consciousness’.”

Gates of Hell – Counterfeit Zion

Deu 4:47  And they took possession of his land, and the land of Og the king of Bashan, the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, toward the sunrising;
Deu 4:48  from Aroer, which is on the edge of the river of Arnon, even to Mount Sion, which is Hermon;

The adversary and his servants appear as the real thing
2Co 11:13  For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
2Co 11:14  And did not Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light?
2Co 11:15  It is not a great thing, then, if also his ministers transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

According to the book of Enoch chapter 7, the fallen angels descended upon Mt. Hermon.

The fallen angels descended on Mt Hermon which the inhabitants of that land called Sirion.  Sirion in Hebrew comes from the root meaning to tie or to twist together.  The allusion to manipulation to DNA is found in this Hebrew word as the word for navel, and relatives comes from this root as well.

Another prophecy associating Mt. Hermon with “twisted work”
Isa 17:1  The burden of Damascus: Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruined* heap**.

*The word ruin here is ‘naphal’ which refers back to the Nephilim.  The word translated as heap is עי which means a ‘twisted work.’

Earnest Martin – “We now come to Mount Hermon. Damascus also had a “high place” as its own “holy place” and it was a legitimate “holy mount.” The people of Damascus had their own “holy mountain.” It was the highest of the mountains from the Euphrates in the north all the way south to Egypt and down to the center part of the Sinai Peninsula. That mountain was “Mount Hermon.” It was the greatest of the sacred mountains of the Middle East. It was considered the most holy mountain of the early Hittites, of all the Gentiles of Palestine and even by the Greeks and Romans (see Encyclopaedia Britannica, vol.5, p.876). Even in the Greek and Roman periods Mount Hermon’s sanctity was recognized as the central worship of all the Gods of the world (no matter who they were).

Look at this fact. At the bottom of Mount Hermon on the southwest side was a place called Panias by the Greeks after the time of Alexander the Great (it is the modern day, Banias) which was Caesarea Philippi in New Testament times.

Panias was named after the ‘god’ Pan.

Mount Hermon, to the ancients, was called the “Gateway to Heaven.” Here the reports of antiquity claim divine emissaries as inter-dimensional beings could be seen moving from one dimension to another.  It we take their testimony literally, they could see beings, that they called angels or “Watchers”, appear out of nowhere and disappear as though they were walking through a “star-gate.”  Here on this mount called Hermon these “Watchers” entered the environment of this planet earth and then returned back to the heavens.

Messiah Yahshua proclaimed war against this false Zion

Mat 16:13  And coming into the parts of Caesarea of Philip, Jesus questioned His disciples, saying, Whom do men say Me the Son of Man to be?
Mat 16:14  And they said, Some say John the Baptist, and others Elijah, and others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.
Mat 16:15  He said to them, But you, whom do you say Me to be?
Mat 16:16  And answering, Simon Peter said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Mat 16:17  And answering, Jesus said to him, Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but My Father in Heaven.
Mat 16:18  And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My assembly, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against her.

How do we overcome the gates of hell? Just as Kepha did.  By holding fast to the testimony of Messiah Yahshua.

Rev 12:11  And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the Word of their testimony. And they did not love their soul even until death.

Mount Hermon: Gate of the Fallen Angels

by J. R. Church

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, Hermon means “Forbidden Place.” Jerome (4th-century translator of the Latin Vulgate Bible) interpreted Hermon as “anathema.” Mount Hermon was the port of entry for a group of wicked angels, who corrupted the human race in the days of Noah. Moses wrote: “The sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose …. There were giants in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown” (Gen. 6:1-4).

We have discussed these “Nephilim” in previous issues, but in this article, I want to add some things that you may not have heard before. For example, there is a rabbinical remark about this story in an ancient Jewish commentary, in which two rabbis add the following insight:

“Rabbi Jose says, following a tradition, that these [Nephilim] were Uzza and Azazel, whom, God deprived of their supernal sanctity. How, it may be asked, can they exist in this world? Rabbi Hiya answers, that they were of a class of spirits referred to in the words, ‘and birds which fly on the earth’ (Gen 1:20), and these, as we have said, appear to men in the form of human beings. If it is asked, how can they transform themselves? The answer is, that they do, in fact, transform themselves into all kinds of shapes, because when they come down from heaven they become as concrete as air and take human shape. These are Uzza and Azazel, who rebelled in heaven, and were cast down by God, and became corporeal on the earth and remained on it, not being able to divest themselves of their earthly form. Subsequently, they went astray after women, and up to this day they exist and teach men the arts of magic. They begat children whom they called Anakim (giants), while the Nephilim themselves were called ‘sons of God’” (Zohar, vol. 1, p. 186).

Note that one rabbi alluded to a class of spirits described as “birds” in Genesis 1:20. Perhaps this was the origin of the story that angels had bird-like wings. To this day, white Doves are symbolic of good, while black crows are typical of evil. It should also be noted that birds seem to have a reptilian connection. The Phoenix was depicted as an eagle in the West, but in the East, it was a winged dragon. From ancient lore, Satan was thought to be somewhat of a gargoyle with bat-like wings.

The Book of Enoch

The apocryphal Book of Enoch enlarges upon the story of the Nephilim. First, let me give you a little background on this mysterious book. Scholars have traced its origin back past the first century:

“In the early literature of the church there is a whole chain of evidences to this effect. Nearly all of the church [leaders] knew of an apocryphal Book of Enoch. Among the Apostolic [leaders], the Epistle of Barnabas refers to such a work. From that time on to about the seventh-century, Christian literature produces ample proof of the constant use and high standing of this book. The early theologians Justin Martyr, Clemens of Alexandria, Origen, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Eusebius, Jerome, Hilary, Epiphanius, Augustine, and others refer to and use it … following the example of Jude, whose citation is taken from Enoch 1:9. They all, with possibly the one dissenting voice of Tertullian, deny the canonicity of this book, and properly regard it as apocryphal; some going even so far as to deny the canonicity of Jude because he had dared to quote an apocryphal work” (George H. Schodde, Nov. 21, 1881, General Introduction to the Book of Enoch).

The following is quoted from the Book of Enoch:

“And it came to pass, after the children of men had increased in those days, beautiful and comely daughters were born to them.

“And the angels, the sons of the heavens, saw and lusted after them, and said one to another: ‘Behold, we will choose for ourselves wives from among the children of men, and will beget for ourselves children.’

“And they descended on Ardîs, which is the summit of Mount Hermon; and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn on it and bound themselves mutually by a curse” (Enoch 6:1-6).

Of all places on this planet where angels could have descended, it was on the northern border of the Promised Land. Perhaps knowing something about God’s future plans to give territory to Abraham’s descendants, these angels plotted their strategy to introduce “the seed of the serpent” into the human race. Also, Mount Hermon lay in the territory where Ham and his family migrated after God’s judgment at the Tower of Babel. According to Genesis 10:6, Ham had four sons: “And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan” (Gen. 10:6).

Canaan settled in the area of Mount Hermon and southward into the territory that was to become Abraham’s Promised Land. This is why the Promised Land was called “Canaan” in the days of Moses and Joshua. Mizraim continued to move southward into Egypt. Coincidentally, Mount Hermon has three peaks, and Ham’s family encountered another set of “three peaks” that had been built before the Flood (those being three great pyramids). Evidently, Mizraim was fascinated by the pyramids and developed a system of worship based on those ancient structures. Cush and Phut continued the family migration southward and settled in Ethiopia and parts of Southern Africa.

To this day, Mount Hermon is still the place where evil continually rains down upon Israel. It is the area of the Syrians, and Hezbollah. The Book of Enoch continues:

“And they took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in to them, and mixed with them, and taught them charms and conjurations, and made them acquainted with the cutting of roots and of woods. And they became pregnant and brought forth great giants whose stature was three thousand ells. These devoured all the acquisitions of mankind till men were unable to sustain themselves. And the giants turned themselves against mankind in order to devour them” (Enoch 7:1-4).

It seems that these fallen angels (the Nephilim) contaminated almost all life on earth. We do not know how many people were contaminated, but we are told that at least Noah’s family remained genetically pure. For that reason, God destroyed the world with a Flood. Had it not been for Noah and his three sons, those fallen angels might have brought an end to all life on the planet. Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth helped save the animals and repopulate the earth.

God Judged the Angels

Both Peter and Jude added further insight about these fallen angels. Peter said, “God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; and spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly” (II Peter 2:4,5).

Jude put it this way: “The angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day” (Jude 6).

Both passages tell of severe punishment upon the Nephilim. Yet, Moses said that “sons of God” reappeared after the Flood (Gen. 6:4). How can this be? Well, the Book of Enoch only mentioned 200 angels, and Satan was not among them. Bear in mind, Satan’s forces were much larger then a mere 200. Perhaps the original group of Nephilim were scouts for a much larger force of demonic angels who, under the leadership of Satan, came to earth after the Flood. It seems to me that the Tower of Babel (meaning “Gate to God”) may have been built in an effort to contact these dark forces and forge a defense against the threat of another judgment. As noted in the Zohar (above) Rabbi Hiya said, “… to this day they exist and teach men the arts of magic.”

As noted above, Genesis 6:4 adds, “… and after that” — meaning that more Nephilim returned to this area after the Flood and established what Joshua called the “land of giants.” Moses and Joshua conquered those giants, of whom, Og was king. Moses wrote that Og’s bed was almost 15 feet long! (Deut. 3:11-13). Og reigned in Mount Hermon. Joshua wrote:

“And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,

“And reigned in mount Hermon, and in Salcah, and in all Bashan, unto the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and half Gilead, the border of Sihon king of Heshbon.

“Them did Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of Israel smite” (Joshua 12:4-6).

The tribe of Dan moved to this area during the days of the Judges, and adopted the Canaanite worship of these angels. It was an ancient idolatry that opposed the worship of Jehovah. In fact, Baal and Ashtaroth were Canaanite deities, whose origin was Mount Hermon! The book of Judges even calls Mount Hermon “Baalhermon,” saying:

“Namely, five lords of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwelt in mount Lebanon, from mount Baalhermon unto the entering in of Hamath” (Judges 3:3).

Furthermore, the fallen angels living on and around Mount Hermon adopted a biblical name for the mountain. They had the audacity to plagiarize a name that God had given to Mount Moriah — Mount Sion! Moses wrote:

“And they possessed his [Sihon's] land, and the land of Og king of Bashan, two kings of the Amorites, which were on this side Jordan toward the sun rising; From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even unto Mount Sion, which is Hermon” (Deut. 4:47,48).

Sion means “lofty,” whereas, Zion means “stronghold.” It is evident that Satan was pushing for a counterfeit of God’s plan for man’s redemption. The devil was determined to replace the “seed” of the woman with the “seed” of the serpent.

In a book entitled, The Gods of the Lodge, author Reginald C. Haupt, Jr., described what he found during his trip to Mount Hermon:

“In the excavations of Baalbek, renamed Heliopolis by the Greeks, temples were uncovered honoring Baal and Bachus. The same is true of the site at Sidon. The Temple there is named the Temple of Baal of Sidon. But by far, of greater importance was the temple of Baal found on Mt. Hermon. Perhaps it would be more meaningful to you if I [Reginald Haupt] quote direct from my source. In the 1982 edition of the Thompson Chain Reference Bible (Fourth Improved Edition), the archaeological supplement was provided by G. Fredrick Owen, D.D., Ed.D. Dr. Owen wrote on page 376 of his supplement the following:

“Mount Hermon, the ‘chief’ of the mountains of Palestine is five miles wide and twenty miles long. It has three peaks, the tallest of which is 9,166 feet above the Mediterranean Sea. For centuries before Abraham’s time, the mountain had been venerated in connection with Baal.

“Baal worship was the leading religion of Canaan. On most of the high peaks of the country were shrines known as ‘high places,’ the higher the holier. Here groves were planted and shrines erected for worship. Since Mount Hermon towered above all the other mountains in the region, it was the chief high place, the shrine of shrines. Canaanites looked to Mount Hermon much as the Moslems face Mecca when they pray.

“During the summer of 1934, Dr. Stewart Crawford and this writer [Reginald Haupt] led a small expedition, in which we studied the ancient Baal shrines surrounding Mount Hermon. We located many ruins and in each case the shrine was so oriented that when the priests and the devotees were at the altar, they faced the chief Baal sanctuary, or Quibla, located on the highest of the three peaks of Hermon.

“We then ascended the mountain and found the ruined temple of Baal, constructed of Herodian masonry, which dated it to just previous to and during the early Christian era. In a low place near the northwest corner of the temple, we excavated and found loads of ash and burnt bone, which had been dumped there as a refuse from sacrifices” (Reginald C. Haupt, Jr., The Gods of the Lodge, p. 126).

During the ministry of Jesus, He and His disciples visited Caesarea Philippi (see cover photo) where the Jordan River springs forth from the slopes of Mount Hermon. In the cover photo, one can see the grotto and cave where Baal worship was in full swing. While observing these shrines, Jesus posed the question: “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” (Matt. 16:13). Jesus was standing in the territory of His great enemy, Satan, and his idolatrous Nephilim. It was the area out of which the Antichrist would arise.

The French Connection

In 1666, Louis XIV of France, authorized the building of an observatory in Paris to measure longitude. This was the beginning of the Paris Zero Meridian. Believe it or not, according to the “Paris Zero Meridian” Mount Hermon (and the ancient territory of Dan) is located at the 33 degrees east of the Paris Zero Meridian (longitude), and 33 degrees north of the Equator (latitude)! The 33rd degree became an important part of Freemasonry, probably due to a history that dates back to the Knights Templar, the French Merovingian Dynasty, and their family ties to the Danites (see our chapter on Dan in Guardians of the Grail).

However, the British would not be outdone. In 1675, England’s first Astronomer Royal, Sir Flamsteed, established a Prime Meridian in London to rival the one in Paris. In 1725, Edmund Halley, the second Astronomer Royal established a second Meridian. In the mid-18th century, another Astronomer Royal, James Bradley, established a third. And in 1851, another Astronomer Royal, Sir George Airy, set up new measuring equipment in a room alongside Bradley’s original equipment (just 19 feet away), which eventually became the basis for international time.

It soon became clear that the world needed to adopt a worldwide standard for the Zero Meridian, so in 1884, 25 countries met in Washington, DC, and voted to accept Airy’s meridian at London’s Greenwich Observatory as the Prime Meridian. France abstained from the vote. The French held to the Paris Zero Meridian as a rival to Greenwich until 1911 for timekeeping purposes and 1914 for navigation. To this day, French cartographers continue to indicate the Paris Meridian on some maps.

In the opening years of the twentieth century, a booklet appeared in Russia by the title, “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Sion.” It was touted as the exposure of a Jewish plot to rule the world. However, its Masonic connection is obvious. The booklet ends with the statement: “Signed by the representatives of Sion of the 33rd Degree” (Michael Baigent, Holy Blood Holy Grail, p. 193).

Note that the name “Sion” is spelled with an “S” rather than a “Z.” The connection with Mount Hermon is obvious.

The Tribe of Dan

Jacob prophesied that Dan would be “a serpent by the way, an adder in the path” (Gen. 49:17), and Moses prophesied, “Dan is a lion’s whelp: he shall leap from Bashan” (Deut. 33:22). These two prophecies are remarkable, in that they connect Dan with the “seed of the serpent,” from which the Antichrist will emerge to claim the title “lion of Judah.”

In the book of Judges the Danites relocated to the northern reaches of the Promised Land. They settled at the foot of Mount Hermon in the territory of Bashan, and adopted the idolatrous Canaanite religion of Baal and Ashtaroth. Eventually, they left for parts unknown and became the proverbial “Lost Tribe.”

However, the Danaans (i.e., Spartans) of the Greece, established the same religious practices that the Danites had developed on Mount Hermon. Greek Mythology is an elaborate reinvention of the Danite religion. The Spartans invented a “messenger of the gods” and called him Hermes (a variation of Hermon), whom the Romans called Mercury. Supposedly, Hermes had a son named Pan. The name “Pan” could be a corruption of the name “Dan.” Today, the Arabs call Caesarea Philippi “Banias,” but that is because there is no “P” sound in Arabic. The older form was “Paneas” (meaning “city of Pan”) from “Paneion.” The name comes from Pan, the pagan god who was worshiped there. Niches for Pan’s statues can still be seen. Observe the niches and cave/grotto in the cover photo. In 4 B.C., this area became the tetrarchy of Herod’s son Philippus, who renamed Paneas as Caesarea Philippi. This name continued until the reign of Nero.

The name Pan means “All things, all gods, or all life.” Therefore, when the Romans built a domed temple to commemorate all their gods, they named it the “Pantheon.” It is a combination of two root words, “Pan,” standing for the son of Hermes (Mercury) and “theo” meaning “gods.” It is clear that Mount Hermon, with its infamous “fallen angels” found its way into the mythologies of many ancient cultures.

Solomon also had something remarkable to say about Mount Hermon:

“Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions’ dens, from the mountains of the leopards” (Song of Solomon 4:8).

Here, Solomon mentioned a “lion’s den” and “the mountains of the leopards.” This may be a reference to the prophecy made by Moses, calling Dan a “lion’s whelp” (Deut. 33:22). It seems that Solomon was aware of the Danite connection to Mount Hermon and used the metaphor of the Danite “lion’s den.” When the Danites first arrived in Northern Israel, they conquered the village of Laish (meaning “lion”) and renamed it “Dan.” The book of Judges reports:

“And they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan their father, who was born unto Israel: howbeit the name of the city was Laish at the first” (Judges 18:29).

Furthermore, Solomon mentioned the Mount Hermon in connection with “leopards.” It is said that Ham’s grandson, Nimrod, wore a Leopard skin as a symbol of his kingship. Also, there are paintings of Egyptian Pharaohs adorned with leopard skins. Even some medieval European royals wore leopard skins. An ancient Jewish commentary connected Nimrod’s Leopard skins with the coats of skin belonging to Adam and Eve:

“Truly he was a man of might, because he was clad in the garments of Adam, and was able by means of them to lay snares for mankind and beguile them. Rabbi Eleazar said: ‘Nimrod used to entice people into idolatrous worship by means of those garments, which enabled him to conquer the world and proclaim himself its ruler, so that mankind offered him worship. He was called Nimrod for the reason that he rebelled against the most high King above, against the higher angels and against the lower angels.’

“Rabbi Simeon said: ‘Our colleagues are acquainted with a profound mystery concerning these garments.’” (Zohar, vol. 1, p. 250). In Daniel 7 and Revelation 13, the Antichrist seems to be connected to the metaphoric leopard.

We cannot say with certainty that Adam and Eve wore leopard skins, but there are a number of sources that suggest Nimrod wore a leopard skin. Among them was Alexander Hislop, in his work, The Two Babylons:

“This custom of taming the leopard, and pressing it into the service of man in this way, is traced up to the earliest times of primitive antiquity. In the works of Sir William Jones, we find it stated from the Persian legends, that Hoshang (i.e., Nimrod), the father of Tahmurs, who built Babylon, was the ‘first who bred dogs and leopards for hunting.’ As Tahmurs, who built Babylon, could be none other than Nimrod, this legend only attributes to his father what, as his name imports, he got the fame of doing himself.

“Now, as the classic god bearing the lion’s skin is recognized by that sign as Hercules, the slayer of the Nemean lion, so in like manner, the god clothed in the leopard’s skin would naturally be marked out as Nimrod, the “leopard-subduer.” That this leopard skin, as appertaining to the Egyptian god, was no occasional thing, we have clearest evidence.

“Wilkinson tells us, that on all high occasions when the Egyptian high priest was called to officiate, it was indispensable that he should do so wearing, as his robe of office, the leopard’s skin.

“As it is a universal principle in all idolatries that the high priest wears the insignia of the god he serves, this indicates the importance which the spotted skin must have had attached to it as a symbol of the god himself” (Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons).

The Danite Antichrist

In recent articles, we covered the teaching of the early church theologians, Irenaeus and Hippolytus, who said that the Antichrist would come from the tribe of Dan, based upon Jeremiah 8:16: “The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones.” We discussed the fact that the Greek king, Alexander the Great, claimed to be born of the “seed of the serpent.” And we have discussed the possibility that the Roman Emperor Nero could have descended from the Danites. Well, when Nero ruled the Roman Empire, he renamed Caesarea Philippi in honor of himself. For a while, the site of the ancient Danite city (seen in the cover photo) was called “Neronias” (meaning “city of Nero”) (Encyclopedia Judaica, “Banias,” p. 162).

Finally, an ancient Jewish Midrash likens Samson to their expected messiah, saying, “Samson in some respects was considered a forerunner of the Messiah who will come from Judah but his mother, according to the Midrash will be of the tribe of Dan” (Yair Davidy, “Dan”).

Amazing! The Jews are looking for a messiah whose father is from the royal family of Judah, but whose mother will be from the tribe of Dan!

Those fallen angels who descended to Mount Hermon introduced the “seed of the serpent” into the human race. Evidently, after the Flood, they consorted with members of the tribe of Dan, mixing the “seed of the serpent” into the human genome once again. The first time it happened, God judged the world with water. The next time, it will be by fire.

International Standard Bible Dictionary

Bacchus

bak´us Διόνυσος, Dı́onusos; later Βάκχος, the Feast of Bacchus; Διονύσια, Dionúsiǎ: The god of wine. His worship had extended over the whole Greek and Roman world centuries before the Christian era, and had degenerated into an orgy of drunkenness and unnamable immoralities, possibly under the influence of oriental Baal worship, such as the Hebrew prophets condemned. It has been surmised that Dionysus was originally not a Greek, but an oriental deity. His worship had been introduced into Egypt, perhaps by the Ptolemies, and Ptolemy Philopator (222-204 bc) had branded the Jews there with his emblem, the sign of the ivy.

When Antiochus Epiphanes made his assault upon Jerusalem in the year 168 bc, he determined to extirpate the worship of Yahweh, which he recognized as the strength of the Jewish resistance, and to replace it by Greek religion. All worship of Yahweh and the observance of Jewish rites, such as the Sabbath and circumcision, were prohibited. Heathen worship was set up all over Judea, and in the temple at Jerusalem on the altar of burnt offering an altar to Jupiter was erected, “the abomination that maketh desolate” (Dan_11:31), and a swine was sacrificed upon it. The immoral practices associated with heathen worship in those days established themselves in the temple. When this feast of Bacchus (Dionysus) with all its revelry came round, the Jews were compelled to go in procession in honor of Bacchus (Dionysus), wearing wreaths of ivy,the emblem of the god (2 Macc 6:7). Some years later, when the worship of Yahweh had been restored, Nicanor the general of Demetrius I, in conducting the war against Judas Maceabacus, threatened the priests that, unless they delivered Judas up as a prisoner, “he would raze the temple of God even with the ground, break down the altar, and erect there a temple unto Bacchus (Dionysus) for all to see” (2 Macc 14:33).

Dionysus, (Bacchus)

dı̄-ō̇-nı̄´sus (Διόνυσος, Diónusos): The youngest of the Greek gods. In Homer he is not associated with the vine. In later Greek legend he is represented as coming from India, as traversing Asia in a triumphal march, accompanied by woodland beings, with pointed ears, snub noses and goat-tails. These creatures were called satyrs. The vine was cultivated among European-Aryans first in Thrace, and here Dionysus is said to have established his worship first in Europe. Then the cult of Dionysus passed down through the Balkan peninsula to Thebes; and in the localized form of the myth the deity was born here – son of Zeus and Semele.

Among all the Greek deities none appealed more vividly to the imagination than Dionysus. Greek tragedy* is a form of worship, the ritual cult of the god of wine, who makes the initiate wise and the ungodly mad. Dionysus speaks most strongly to the sense and to the spirit at the same time. There is nothing monotonous in the Dionysiac legend; it is replete with both joy and sorrow – in some aspects it is a “passion” in others a triumph. All the passion plays of the world (even the Oberammergau Schauspiel) are in the ancient spirit. One Dionysus after another has been substituted, but from the first there has been a desire on the part of the devotee to realize his god vividly with thrilling nearness, to partake of his joys and sorrows and triumphs in his manifold adventures. In the early myths Dionysus was one of the lesser gods; he is mentioned only twice in the Iliad and twice in the Odyssey; but he is always represented as being more nearly akin to man than the great august deities of Olympus. He is a man-god, or god-man. To the inhabitants of the vine-clad slopes of Attica, to which his cult had been brought from Phrygia through Thracian Boeotia, he was particularly dear. At their vintage feasts last year’s cask of wine was opened; and when the new year brought life again to the vines, the bountiful god was greeted with songs of joyful praise. The burial of the wine in the dark tomb of the jars through the winter, and the opening of these jars at the spring festival symbolized the great awakening of man himself, the resurrection of the god’s worshippers to a fuller and more joyous life. The vine was not the only manifestation of the god – oil and wheat were also his; he was the god of ecstasy, the giver of physical joy and excitement, the god of life, the god of certain laws of Nature, germination and extinction, the external coming into being and the dying away of all things that are, fructification in its widest aspect whether in the bursting of the seed-grain that lies intreasured in the earth, or in the generation of living creatures. Hence, the prominence given to the phallus in the solemn processions in honor of the god.

Nicanor (2 Macc 14:33) and Antiochus Epiphanes (2 Macc 6:7) thought that the cult of Dionysus would not be objectionable to the Jews. Ptolemy Philopator branded the Jews with an ivy-leaf (3 Macc 2:29), which was sacred to Dionysus.

The European drama had its origin in Greece. Both forms, tragic and comic, took their rise in the celebrations of the Greek festivals of Dionysus (Bacchus), at which hymns and chants were sung by choruses in honour of the god, and the chorus continued to be a prominent feature of the old Greek drama.

In most modern European countries the regular drama took its rise in the mysteries, miracle-plays, and moralities of the middle ages.

Regular comedies in Italian were written by Ariosto, Aretino, Macchiavelli, and others; and to the same period (15th and 16th centuries) belongs the Italian pastoral Drama, which sprung from the ancient idylls, and aimed at a fanciful delineation of Arcadian and mythological scenes.

The French drama was in a miserable state before Corncille (1606-84), who indeed is looked on as the founder of the drama in France. Racine, Moliere, Voltaire, and in later times Hugo, are some of the other distinguished French dramatists.  Victor Hugo was a leader in the movement away from classic drama to Romanticism.  Hugo was also a grand master of the Prieure de Sion (Priory of Sion) which is the alleged organization associated with the Merovingian bloodline.  The connections to the mark of the beast and this bloodline will be discussed in more detail in a future study, Yah willing.  The reason for bringing up this subject is that one of the main tools of the adversary to bring about the antichrist kingdom is the media.  Movies, television, radio, the news etc..click here

BACCHUS

“The lamented one”; from Bakhah ,”to weep” or “lament”. The revelries of Bacchus were suppose to purify the soul.

This connects Bacchus with Tammuz.  The prophet Ezekiel speaks of Israel partaking of customs pertaining to Tammuz worship at the house of YHWH.  This is what Antiochus was forcing upon Yisrael during the times of the Maccabees.  Mixing Tammuz/Bacchus/Dionysus worship at the Temple.

Eze 8:14  And He brought me to the opening of the gate of the house of YHWH, toward the north. And, behold, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz.

Two Babylons- Alexander Hislop pg 22

In Scripture he is referred to (Eze 8:14) under the name of Tammuz, but he is commonly known among classical writers under the name of Bacchus, that is, “The Lamented one.” *

* From Bakhah “to weep” or “lament.” Among the Phoenicians, says Hesychius, “Bacchos means weeping.” As the women wept for Tammuz, so did they for Bacchus.

To the ordinary reader the name of Bacchus suggests nothing more than revelry and drunkenness, but it is now well known, that amid all the abominations that attended his orgies, their grand design was professedly “the purification of souls,” and that from the guilt and defilement of sin. This lamented one, exhibited and adored as a little child in his mother’s arms, seems, in point of fact, to have been the husband of Semiramis, whose name, Ninus, by which he is commonly known in classical history, literally signified “The Son.”

Two Babylons pg 49-50

As Nin “the Son,” he was portrayed as a youth or child; and that youth or child was generally depicted with a cup in his hand. That cup, to the multitude, exhibited him as the god of drunken revelry; and of such revelry in his orgies, no doubt there was abundance; but yet, after all, the cup was mainly a hieroglyphic, and that of the name of the god. The name of a cup, in the sacred language, was khus, and thus the cup in the hand of the youthful Bacchus, the son of Aethiops, showed that he was the young Chus, or the son of Chus. In the accompanying woodcut (Fig. 22), the cup in the right hand of Bacchus is held up in so significant a way, as naturally to suggest that it must be a symbol; and as to the branch in the other hand, we have express testimony that it is a symbol. But it is worthy of notice that the branch has no leaves to determine what precise kind of a branch it is. It must, therefore, be a generic emblem for a branch, or a symbol of a branch in general; and, consequently, it needs the

cup as its complement, to determine specifically what sort of a branch it is. The two symbols, then, must be read together, and read thus, they are just equivalent to–the “Branch of Chus”–i.e., “the scion or son of Cush.”

Here we see how Bacchus is a counterfeit of the Messiah who is the TRUE BRANCH

Jer 23:5  Behold, the days come, says YHWH, that I will raise to David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and act wisely, and He shall do justice and righteousness in the earth.

Jer 23:6  In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely. And this is His name by which He shall be called, YHWH our Righteousness.

Zec 3:8  Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your associates who are sitting before you; for they are men of symbol.

Zec 3:9  For, behold, I will bring forth My Servant, the BRANCH. For behold, the stone which I have given before Joshua, on the one stone are seven eyes. I will engrave its engraving, says YHWH of Hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day*.

Zec 3:10  In that day, says YHWH of Hosts, you shall call each man to his neighbor to sit under the vine and under the fig tree.

Zec 6:12  And speak to him, saying, So says YHWH of Hosts, saying, Behold! The Man whose name is THE BRANCH! And He** (Yahoshua) shall spring up out of His place, and He shall build the temple of YHWH.

*This is important to note.  It is the BRANCH who removes the sins of the people.  Dionysus (Bacchus) the heathen BRANCH is called the sin bearer as a direct counterfeit.

**Here we see a prophecy that the name of the BRANCH is going to be Yahoshua.

From SMITH’s Classical Dictionary, p. 208

There is another hieroglyphic connected with Bacchus that goes not a little to confirm this–that is, the Ivy branch. No emblem was more distinctive of the worship of Bacchus than this. Wherever the rites of Bacchus were performed, wherever his orgies were celebrated, the Ivy branch was sure to appear. Ivy, in some form or other, was essential to these celebrations. The votaries carried it in their hands, bound it around their heads, or had the Ivy leaf even indelibly stamped upon their persons. What could be the use, what could be the meaning of this? A few words will suffice to show it. In the first place, then, we have evidence that Kissos, the Greek name for Ivy, was one of the names of Bacchus; and further, that though the name of Cush, in its proper form, was known to the priests in the Mysteries, yet that the established way in which the name of his descendants, the Cushites, was ordinarily pronounced in Greece, was not after the

Oriental fashion, but as “Kissaioi,” or “Kissioi.” Thus, Strabo, speaking of the inhabitants of Susa, who were the people of Chusistan, or the ancient land of Cush, says: “The Susians are called Kissioi,” –that is beyond all question, Cushites.

Now, if Kissioi be Cushites, then Kissos is Cush. Then, further, the branch of Ivy that occupied so conspicuous a place in all Bacchanalian celebrations was an express symbol of Bacchus himself; for Hesychius assures us that Bacchus, as represented by his priest, was known in the Mysteries as “The branch.” From this, then, it appears how Kissos, the Greek name of Ivy, became the name of Bacchus. As the son of Cush, and as identified with him, he was sometimes called by his father’s name–Kissos. His actual relation, however, to his father was specifically brought out by the Ivy branch, for “the branch of Kissos,” which to the profane vulgar was only “the branch of Ivy,” was to the initiated “The branch of Cush.” *

* The chaplet, or head-band of Ivy, had evidently a similar hieroglyphical meaning to the above, for the Greek “Zeira Kissou” is either a “band or circlet of Ivy,” or “The seed of Cush.” The formation of the Greek “Zeira,” a zone or enclosing band, from the Chaldee Zer, to encompass, shows that Zero “the seed,” which was also pronounced Zeraa, would, in like manner, in some Greek dialects, become Zeira. Kissos, “Ivy,” in Greek, retains the radical idea of the Chaldee Khesha or Khesa, “to cover or hide,” from which there is reason to believe the name of Cush is derived, for Ivy is characteristically “The coverer or hider.” In connection with this, it may be stated that the second person of the Phoenician trinity was Chursorus (WILKINSON), which evidently is Chus-zoro, “The seed of Cush.” We have already seen that the Phoenicians derived their mythology from Assyria.

Here we see that Ivy is associated the covering or hiding.  This is the meaning of the word satur and is associated with the ‘god’ Saturn.   As seen in part 2click here the Hebrew word for mystery/hidden/secret is setur which equals 666.

Another interesting connection between ivy and mystery is the wine of Bacchus.  In rabbinic tradition wine is connected to mystery because it has the same gematria as the Hebrew word sod (mystery).

Two Babylons pg 69

D’ion-nuso-s signifies “THE SINBEARER,”

* a name entirely appropriate to the character of him whose sufferings were

represented as so mysterious, and who was looked up to as the great “purifier of souls.”

As stated above, we see again Bacchus/Dionysus as a counterfeit Messiah.

Two Babylons pg 71

Now, this Babylonian god, known in Greece as “The sin-bearer,” and in India as the “Victim-Man,” among the Buddhists of the East, the original elements of whose system are clearly Babylonian, was commonly addressed as the “Saviour of the world.” It has been all along well enough known that the Greeks occasionally worshipped the supreme god under the title of “Zeus the Saviour”; but this title was thought to have reference only to deliverance in battle, or some suck- like temporal deliverance. But when it is known that “Zeus the Saviour” was only a title of Dionysus, the “sin-bearing Bacchus,” his character, as “The Saviour,” appears in quite a different

light.

As the true Messiah was prophesied of under the title of the “Man whose name was the branch,” he was celebrated not only as the “Branch of Cush,” but as the “Branch of God,” graciously given to the earth for healing all the ills that flesh is heir to. * He was worshipped in Babylon under the name of El-Bar, or “God the Son.” Under this very name he is introduced by Berosus, the Chaldean historian, as the second in the list of Babylonian sovereigns.

* This is the esoteric meaning of Virgil’s “Golden Branch,” and of the Mistletoe Branch of the Druids.

The wreaths with mistletoe are the same as the garlands of ivy of the Bacchus rites.

Christmas Bacchus connection

Two Babylons pg 95

It was no mere astronomic festival, then, that the Pagans celebrated at the winter solstice. That festival at Rome was called the feast of Saturn, and the mode in which it was celebrated there, showed whence it had been derived. The feast, as regulated by Caligula, lasted five days; * loose reins were given to drunkenness and revelry, slaves had a temporary emancipation, ** and used all manner of freedoms with their masters. {Exactly the same as the feast of Bacchus seen above that Antiochus forced Yisrael into doing}

* Subsequently the number of the days of the Saturnalia was increased to seven.

** If Saturn, or Kronos, was, as we have seen reason to believe, Phoroneus, “The

emancipator,” the “temporary emancipation” of the slaves at his festival was

exactly in keeping with his supposed character.

This is important to note.  This is a counterfeit of the Jubilee of the Scriptures.  The Jubilee was sounded at Yom Kippur and Sukkot which follows 5 days later is a picture of dwelling/tabernacling with the Messiah when He returns.  According to the book of Maccabees, Hanukkah is just a replay of Sukkot (2Maccabees 1:9).  So we see two opposing feasts which represent two opposing marks.  Hanukkah which is a ’2nd Sukkot’ where the Temple (body) is rededicated (resurrection) at the coming of the Messiah or Christmas which is a rehearsal of the coming of the antichrist where the Temple (body) is defiled (mark of beast).

“…the divine child born at the winter solstice was born as a new incarnation of the great god (after that god had been cut in pieces…on purpose to revenge his death upon his murderers.) Now the great god, cut off in the midst of his power and glory, was symbolised as a huge tree, stripped of all his branches, and cut down almost to the ground. But the great Serpent, the symbol of the life restoring Aesculapius, twists itself around the dead stock…and lo, at its side sprouts a young tree – a tree of an entirely different kind,* that is never to be cut down by a hostile power -…and thus shadowed forth the perpetuity and everlasting nature of his power, how that after having fallen before his enemies, he has risen triumphant over them all. Therefore, the 25th of December, the day that was observed in Rome as the day when the victorious god reappeared on earth was held at the Natalis invicti solis, ‘The birthday of the unconquered Sun.”

*the serpent coiling up the tree (spine) bringing about a new being…in Hebrew the word for spine is the same word for tree.  The serpent wrapping around the tree/spin is what the mystery religions call Kundalini which allows the ‘third eye’ to be opened which is really the pineal gland.  The pineal gland is represented in heathen cultures as the pine cone…hence the Christmas tree is an evergreen or pine which has lights (serpent/Lucifer…light bringer) enwrapping around to the top where there is usually a pentagram or hexagram or angel crowned at the top all representing the new man, the enlightened being.

This was precisely the way in which, according to Berosus, the drunken festival of the month Thebeth, answering to our December, in other words, the festival of Bacchus, was celebrated in Babylon. “It was the custom,” says he, “during the five days it lasted, for masters to be in

subjection to their servants, and one of them ruled the house, clothed in a purple garment like a king.”

This “purple-robed” servant was called “Zoganes,” the “Man of sport and wantonness,” and answered exactly to the “Lord of Misrule,” that in the dark ages, was chosen in all Popish countries to head the revels of Christmas. The wassailling bowl of Christmas had its precise counterpart in the “Drunken festival” of Babylon; and many of the other observances still kept up among ourselves at Christmas came from the very same quarter. The candles, in some parts of England, lighted on Christmas-eve, and used so long as the festive season lasts, were equally lighted by the Pagans on the eve of the festival of the Babylonian god, to do honour to him: for it was one of the distinguishing peculiarities of his worship to have lighted wax-candles on his altars. The Christmas tree, now so common among us, was equally common in Pagan Rome and Pagan Egypt. In Egypt that tree was the palm-tree; in Rome it was the fir; the palm-tree denoting the Pagan Messiah, as Baal- Tamar, the fir referring to him as Baal-Berith. The mother of Adonis, the Sun-God and great mediatorial divinity, was mystically said to have been changed into a tree, and when in that state to have brought forth her divine son. If the mother was a tree, the son must have been recognised as the “Man the branch.” And this entirely accounts for the putting of the Yule Log into the fire on Christmas-eve, and the appearance of the Christmas-tree the next morning. As Zero-Ashta, “The seed of the woman,” which name also signified Ignigena, or “born of the fire,” he has to enter the fire on “Mother-night,” that he ma y be born the next day out of it, as the “Branch of God,” or the Tree that brings all divine gifts to men. But why, it may be asked, does he enter the fire under the symbol of a Log? To understand this, it must be remembered that the divine child born at the winter solstice was born as a new incarnation of the great god (after that god had been cut in pieces), on purpose to revenge his death upon his murderers. Now the great god, cut off in the midst of his power and glory, was symbolised as a huge tree, stripped of all its branches, and cut down almost to the ground. But the great serpent, the symbol of the life restoring Aesculapius, twists itself around the dead stock (see Fig. 27), and lo, at its side up sprouts a young tree–a tree of an entirely different kind, that is destined never to be cut down by hostile power–even the palm-tree, the well-known symbol of victory. The Christmas-tree, as has been stated, was generally at Rome a different tree, even the fir; but the very same idea as was implied in the palm-tree was implied in the Christmas- fir; for that covertly symbolised the new-born God as Baal-berith, * “Lord of the Covenant,” and thus shadowed forth the perpetuity and everlasting nature of his power, not that after having fallen before his enemies, he had risen triumphant over them all. * Baal-bereth, which differs only in one letter from Baal-berith, “Lord of the Covenant,” signifies “Lord of the fir-tree.”

Fig. 27: The Yule Log

From MAURICE’s Indian Antiquities, vol. vi. p. 368.

Therefore, the 25th of December, the day that was observed at Rome as the day when the victorious god reappeared on earth, was held at the Natalis invicti solis, “The birth-day of the unconquered Sun.” Now the Yule Log is the dead stock of Nimrod, deified as the sun- god, but cut down by his enemies; the Christmas-tree is Nimrod redivivus–the slain god come to life again. In the light reflected by the above statement on customs that still linger among us, the

origin of which has been lost in the midst of hoar antiquity, let the reader look at the singular practice still kept up in the South on Christmas-eve, of kissing under the mistletoe bough. That mistletoe bough in the Druidic superstition, which, as we have seen, was derived from Babylon, was a representation of the Messiah, “The man the branch.” The mistletoe was regarded as a divine branch *–a branch that came from heaven, and grew upon a tree that sprung out of the earth.

* In the Scandinavian story of Balder, the mistletoe branch is distinguished from

the lamented god. The Druidic and Scandinavian myths somewhat differed; but

yet, even in the Scandinavian story, it is evident that some marvellous power was

attributed to the mistletoe branch; for it was able to do what nothing else in the

compass of creation could accomplish; it slew the divinity on whom the Anglo-

Saxons regarded “the empire” of their “heaven” as “depending.” Now, all that is

necessary to unravel this apparent inconsistency, is just to understand “the

branch” that had such power, as a symbolical expression for the true Messiah. The

Bacchus of the Greeks came evidently to be recognised as the “seed of the

serpent “; for he is said to have been brought forth by his mother in consequence

of intercourse with Jupiter, when that god had appeared in the form of a serpent.

If the character of Balder was the same, the story of his death just amounted to

this, that the “seed of the serpent” had been slain by the “seed of the woman.”

This story, of course, must have originated with his enemies. But the idolators

took up what they could not altogether deny, evidently with the view of

explaining it away.

Thus by the engrafting of the celestial branch into the earthly tree, heaven and earth, that sin had severed, were joined together, and thus the mistletoe bough became the token of Divine

Two Babylons pg 98

reconciliation to man, the kiss being the well-known token of pardon and reconciliation. Whence could such an idea have come? May it not have come from the eighty-fifth Psalm, ver. 10,11,

“Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have KISSED each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth [in consequence of the coming of the promised Saviour], and righteousness shall look down from heaven”? Certain it is that that Psalm was written soon after the Babylonish captivity; and as multitudes of the Jews, after that event, still remained in Babylon under the guidance of inspired men, such as Daniel, as a part of the Divine word it must have been communicated to them, as well as to their kinsmen in Palestine. Babylon was, at that time, the centre of the civilised world; and thus Paganism, corrupting the Divine symbol as it ever has done, had opportunities of sending forth its debased counterfeit of the truth to all the ends of the earth, through the Mysteries that were affiliated with the great central system in Babylon. Thus the very customs of Christmas still existent cast surprising light at once on the revelations of grace made to all the earth, and the efforts made by Satan and his emissaries to materialise, carnalise, and degrade them.

In many countries the boar was sacrificed to the god, for the injury a boar was fabled to have done him. According to one version of the story of the death of Adonis, or Tammuz, it was, as we have seen, in consequence of a wound from the tusk of a boar that he died.

Here we see a strong connection to Christmas and Hanukkah.  Hanukkah is the story of an antichrist figure who sacrificed a pig on the altar of YHWH in honor Tammuz/Bacchus. This was done on the 25th of Kislev which occurs near the winter solstice and the time of Christmas.  Hence, it makes perfect sense of Antiochus Epiphanes to sacrifice a pig at this time in honor of his god ‘triumphing’ over the god of the Jews.

The Phrygian Attes, the beloved of Cybele, whose story was identified with that of Adonis, was fabled to have perished in like manner, by the tusk of a boar. Therefore, Diana, who though commonly represented in popular myths only as the huntress Diana, was in reality the great mother of the gods, has frequently the boar’s head as her accompaniment, in token not of any mere success in the chase, but of her triumph over the grand enemy of the idolatrous system, in which she occupied so conspicuous a place. According to Theocritus, Venus was reconciled to the boar that

killed Adonis, because when brought in chains before her, it pleaded so pathetically that it had not killed her husband of malice prepense, but only through accident. But yet, in memory of the

Two Babylons page 99

deed that the mystic boar had done, many a boar lost its head or was offered in sacrifice to the offended goddess. In Smith, Diana is represented with a boar’s head lying beside her, on the top of a heap of stones, * and in the accompanying woodcut (Fig. 28), in which the Roman Emperor Trajan is represented burning incense to the same goddess, the boar’s head forms a very prominent figure. On Christmas-day the Continental Saxons offered a boar in sacrifice to the Sun, to propitiate her ** for the loss of her beloved Adonis.

* SMITH’s Class. Dict., p. 112.

** The reader will remember the Sun was a goddess. Mallet says, “They offered

the largest hog they could get to Frigga”– i.e., the mother of Balder the lamented

one. In Egypt swine were offered once a year, at the feast of the Moon, to the

Moon, and Bacchus or Osiris; and to them only it was lawful to make such an

offering. (AELIAN)

Bacchus & the Fish

Two Babylons Pg 112

One of the many sacred names by which Tammuz or Nimrod was called, when he reappeared in the Mysteries, after being slain, was Oannes. *

* BEROSUS, BUNSEN’S Egypt. To identify Nimrod with Oannes, mentioned by Berosus as appearing out of the sea, it will be remembered that Nimrod has been proved to be Bacchus. Then, for proof that Nimrod or Bacchus, on being overcome by his enemies, was fabled to have taken refuge in the sea, see chapter 4, section i. When, therefore, he was represented as reappearing, it was natural that he should reappear in the very character of Oannes as a Fish-god. Now, Jerome calls Dagon, the well known Fish-god Piscem moeroris (BRYANT), “the fish of sorrow,” which goes far to identify that Fish-god with Bacchus, the “Lamented one”; and the identification is complete when Hesychius tells us that some called Bacchus Ichthys, or “The fish.”

Two Babylons pg 134

Fig. 36: Symbols of Nimrod and Baal-Berith

From BRYANT: the first figure, the divided bull, is from vol. iii. p. 303; the second, the god on the fish, from the same vol., p. 338. The former is just another symbol of that which is represented by the mighty tree cut asunder (see Christmas and Lady-day). That tree represented Nimrod as “the mighty one” cut in pieces in the midst of his power and glory. The divided man-bull symbolises him as “The prince” who was cut asunder in like manner; for the name for a prince and a bull is the same. The fish over the bull shows the transformation he was supposed to undergo when put to death by his enemies; for the story of  Melikerta, who with his mother Ino was cast into the sea, and became a sea-god (SMITH’s Class. Dict., “Athamas,” p. 100), is just another version of the story of Bacchus, for Ino was the foster-mother of Bacchus (SMITH, sub voce “Dionysus,” p. 226). Now, on the second medal, Melikerta, under the name of Palaemon, isrepresented as triumphantly riding on the fish, his sorrows being over, with the fir-tree, or pine, the emblem of Baal-Berith, “Lord of the Covenant,” as his ensign. This, compared with what is stated … about the Christmas-tree, shows how the fir-tree came to be recognised in the character of

the Christmas-tree. The name Ghelas above the divided bull and the fish is equivocal. As applied to the fish, it comes from Ghela, “to exult or leap for joy,” as dolphins and such like fished do in the sea; as applied to the divinity, whom both the fish and the bull represented, it comes from Ghela, “to reveal,” for that divinity was the “revealer of goodness and truth” (WILKINSON, vol. iv. p. 189).

http://www.innvista.com/culture/religion/deities/words.htm, Heathen Words, “Jesus”:

The common abbreviation for Iesous was IHS, which is found on many inscriptions of the “Church.” IHS was the mystery name of Bacchus, aka Tammuz. Both were known as “The Fish” god. Jesus was also associated with fish, and thus his name was used synonymously — Jesus/Iesous/Ichthus (fish).

http://www.angelfire.com/ma4/namesofmen/chap5.html, Chapter Five …Something Fishy… (5-3-02):

IHS is a mystic surname of Bacchus: I(ota) = Iacchus; H(eta) = Helios, the sun; S(sigma) = son or incarnation of the sun.”[25] … All major dictionaries and reference works recognize that “IHS” is shortened from of the name “IHSOUS”–the name commonly attributed to the Messiah. However, it has been learned that “IHS” was a hidden or mysterious surname for the mythical god Bacchus. Bacchus was known as a sun-deity who also had the symbol of the “Tau cross” as well as the Fish symbol and was also recognized by many of the classical writers as Tammuz, the youthful returning sun-deity. … Now that brings us again to the fish story. Bacchus was also called the ICHTHUS, or the Fish.

Fig. 35: Cupid with Wine-Cup and Ivy Garland of Bacchus

From Pompeii, vol. ii. p. 150.

The reader will remember that Jupiter, as “Jupiter puer,” or “Jupiter the boy,” was worshipped in the arms of the goddess Fortuna, just as Ninus was worshipped in the arms of the Babylonian goddess, or Horus in the arms of Isis (see Ch. II, Section II). Moreover, Cupid, who, as being the son of Jupiter, is Vejovis – that is, as we learn from Ovid (vol. iii. p. 179, in a Note to Fasti, lib. iii. v. 408), “Young Jupiter” – is represented, as in the above cut, not only with the wine-cup of Bacchus, but with the Ivy garland, the distinctive mark of the same divinity, around him.

Two Babylons pg 172

From MOOR’s Pantheon, Plate 11, Fig. 6.

The veneration of the “sacred heart” seems also to have extended to India, for there Vishnu, the Mediatorial god, in one of his forms, with the mark of the wound in his foot, in consequence of which he died, and for which such lamentation is annually made, is represented as wearing a heart suspended on his breast It is asked, How came it that the “Heart” became the recognised symbol of the Child of the great Mother? The answer is, “The Heart” in Chaldee is “BEL”; and as, at first, after the check given to idolatry, almost all the most important elements of the Chaldean system were introduced under a veil, so under that veil they continued to be shrouded from the gaze of the uninitiated, after the first reason–the reason of fear–had long ceased to operate. Now, the worship of the “Sacred Heart” was just, under a symbol, the worship of the “Sacred Bel,” that mighty one of Babylon, who had died a martyr for idolatry; for Harpocrates, or Horus, the infant god, was regarded as Bel, born again. That this was in very deed the case, the following extract from Taylor, in one of his notes to his translation of the Orphic Hymns, will show. “While Bacchus,” says he, was “beholding himself” with admiration “in a mirror, he was miserably torn to pieces by the Titans, who, not content with this cruelty,first boiled his members in water, and afterwards roasted them in the fire; but while they were tasting his flesh thus dressed, Jupiter, excited by the steam, and perceiving the cruelty of the deed, hurled his thunder at the Titans, but committed his members to Apollo, the brother of

page 172

Bacchus, that they might be properly interred. And this being performed, Dionysius [i.e., Bacchus], (whose HEART, during his laceration, was snatched away by Minerva and preserved) by a new REGENERATION, again emerged, and he being restored to his pristine life and integrity, afterwards filled up the number of the gods.” This surely shows, in a striking light, the peculiar sacredness of the heart of Bacchus; and that the regeneration of his heart has the very meaning I have attached to it–viz., the new birth or new incarnation of Nimrod or Bel.*

*The Christmas tree is a symbol of the resurrection/regeneration of Nimrod and so is the heart symbol.

When Bel, however was born again as a child, he was, as we have seen, represented as an incarnation of the sun. Therefore, to indicate his connection with the fiery and burning sun, the “sacred heart” was frequently represented as a “heart of flame.” So the “Sacred Heart” of Rome is actually worshipped as a flaming heart, as may be seen on the rosaries devoted to that worship.

Of what use, then, is it to say that the “Sacred Heart” which Rome worships is called by the name of “Jesus,” when not only is the devotion given to a material image borrowed from the worship of the Babylonian Antichrist, but when the attributes ascribed to that “Jesus” are not the attributes of the living and loving Saviour, but the genuine attributes of the ancient Moloch or Bel?

The heart represents the throne of Elohim.  The Temple of YHWH was a representation of the human body, where the human heart corresponds to the ark of the covenant.

In the book of Revelation (Chapter 4) John is shown a vision of the Throne of Elohim.  Around the throne and the 4 living creatures are 24 elders (Revelation 4:4) representing the 24 ribs surrounding the human heart.  From the heart blood is pumped to the Lungs.  As seen in Genesis 1:2-5click here , the etymology of the English word ‘Lung’ traces back to the meaning of Light.  In our bodies our lungs have 7 vascular bundles called nodes.  These represent the 7 Spirits of Elohim (Revelation 4:5; Isaiah 11:1-3).  These 7 Spirits/Ruach/Breathe are pictured in the earthly Tabernacle/Temple by the Menorah.  The Menorah is a picture of the Tree of Life.  The Light of the world.

Rev 4:5  And out of the throne come forth lightnings and thunders and voices. And seven lamps of fire are burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God;

This is where the man of sin seeks to be enthroned (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

Tree of Life vs the Tree of knowledge
The ivy symbol points to the tree of knowledge which is a counterfeit of the tree of life.  Messiah is the vine we are the branches…this points back to the Menorah, a picture of the body of Messiah.  Hence, the ivy symbol is a picture of the antichrist and his body where he desires to sit in the temple of Elohim (1 Corinthians 6:19).

Psa 80:14  O God of Hosts, we beg You, return! Look down from Heaven and see and visit this vine,
Psa 80:15  and the vineyard
(kannah כנה ***) which Your right hand has planted, and on the son (KJV branch) You made strong for Yourself.

***In the Hebrew text this word has an enlarged kaf which represents the palm of the hand.

The palm of the hand points to the Word.


The human hand has 27 bones: the carpus or wrist account for 8; the metacarpals or palm contains five; the remaining fourteen are digital bones; fingers and thumb.  The 27 bones of the hand correspond to the 27 books of the New Testament.  The human arm consists of the humerus, ulna and radius representing the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings (TaNaKH).
Psa 80:16  It is burned with fire, cut down; they perish at the rebuke of Your face.
Psa 80:17  Let Your hand be on the man of Your right hand; on the son of man whom You have made strong for Yourself.

On a deeper level, our bodies are also pictures by books.

Psa 40:7  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

‘Tome’ is the root of the word anatomy

In the same passage of Scripture mentioned above in reference to Messiah, it speaks of the body being given to Him.

Heb 10:5  For this reason, coming into the world, He says, “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but You prepared a body for Me.
Heb 10:6  You did not delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices concerning sins.”
Heb 10:7  “Then I said, Lo, I come, in the heading*** of the Book
(Biblion) it was written concerning Me, to do Your will, O God.” LXX-Psa. 39:7 -9; MT-Psa. 40:6 -8

In Hebrew this word is ‘megillah’ which is also related to the ‘head’.  The word golgolet (Golgotha/skull) comes from this same root in Hebrew meaning round. The word ‘megillah’ is related to the Hebrew word ‘galgal’ (circle) which has the gematria of 66, referring back to the 66 books of the Word.

The word for ‘chapter’, also means a ‘head’ from the Latin capitulum.

Traditionally, Torah scrolls were treated like living beings.  They were clothed and when they wore out they were buried.  The armor worn by a man (specifically speaking of Messiah) as mentioned in Isaiah 59:13; Ephesians 6:11 corresponds with the clothing of a Torah Scroll. The Armor of Elohim is linked with baptism in Messiah Armor of Elohim

The word in Greek for armor is ‘panoplia’ which is used to translate the Hebrew word ‘chalatz’ in the Septuagint

Going back to the word anatomy, as seen above it used to be a synonymous word with ‘skeleton.’

Notice that the word skeleton traces back to the meaning of ‘dried up.’  This links to the current study through the word for ‘dry land’ (yabesh).  Interestingly, the body of Messiah is likened to dry bones העצמות היבשׁות in Ezekiel 37 which is resurrected and brought back to the land of Israel.

The word for bone in Hebrew comes from the word עץ meaning a tree…it is no coincidence that Ezekiel 37 speaks of bones in reference to the resurrected body of Messiah and then speaks of 2 trees becoming one in reference to His body.

There are 206 bones in the human skeleton.  Here are a few times that the gematria of 206 is seen in the Scriptures.  Notice the connections to the current study.

The etymology of the word codex comes from a block of wood.

In the 5th century, Isidore of Seville explained the relation between codex, book and scroll in his Etymologiae (VI.13): “A codex is composed of many books; a book is of one scroll. It is called codex by way of metaphor from the trunks (codex) of trees or vines, as if it were a wooden stock, because it contains in itself a multitude of books, as it were of branches.”

Those who are reborn in Messiah will be in His image.  Walking Torah Scrolls.

2Co 3:3  it having been made plain that you are Christ’s letter, served by us, not having been inscribed by ink, but by the Spirit of the living God, not in tablets of stone, but in fleshly tablets of the heart.

The word for letter above is the Greek word Epistole (Epistle) which comes from the Hebrew word אגרת.  In Hebrew אגר means to gather and the letter tav means the cross/covenant.  2 Corinthians 3:3 describes the New covenant (Jeremiah 31:31; Hebrews 8:8; 10:16; Ezekiel 11:16-20; 36:26)  Interestingly, אגר comes from the root גר which literally means a ‘walking man.’  It is translated as a sojourner, traveler, and as a stranger (Genesis 17:8; 47:9; Leviticus 25:23; Psalm 39:12; 1 Peter 2:11; 1:17; Hebrews 11:9, 13-16; 13:14).

This is the root word for ‘melanin’, that which is found in the skin which brings forth the various colors.

Who is the one that writes on the hearts of the living epistles with the ink of the Spirit?  Messiah, who is putting the Mark of YHWH on the foreheads of the righteous.  Notice here that the man with the inkhorn is one among 7…

Eze 9:2  And, behold, six men were coming from the way of the Upper Gate, which faces north. And each had his shattering weapon in his hand. And one man among them was clothed in linen, and an ink horn of a scribe at his loins. And they went in and stood beside the bronze altar.
Eze 9:3  And the glory of the God of Israel had gone on, from on the cherub where it was on it, to the threshold of the house. And He called to the man clothed in linen with the ink horn of a scribe at his loins.
Eze 9:4  And YHWH said to him, Pass through in the midst of the city, in the midst of Jerusalem, and mark a mark on the foreheads of the men who are groaning and are mourning over all the abominations that are done in her midst.

Here we see an inkhorn instead of a sword.  This links with the armor of Elohim mentioned above as the Word is the Sword of the Spirit. (Ephesians 6:17; Hebrew 4:12).

Going even deep into this connection between men and books is DNA.

Ark of the Covenant – DNA – Jacob’s Pillar

On a deeper level, there are connections between the ark of the covenant and Jacob’s pillar & DNAclick here .

The ladder

Gen 28:11  And he came on a place and stayed the night there, for the sun had gone. And he took stones of the place and placed them at his head; and he lay down in that place.
Gen 28:12  And he dreamed. And, behold, a ladder was placed on the earth, its top reaching to the heavens. And, behold, the angels of God were going up and going down on it!

Gen 28:17  And he was afraid, and said, How fearful is this place! This is nothing except the house of God, and this is the door to Heaven.
Gen 28:18  And Jacob started up early in the morning and took the stone which he had placed at his head, and he placed it as a pillar; and he poured oil on the top of it.
Gen 28:19  And he called the name of that place, The House of God
{Bethel}. And yet the name of the city was at first Luz.

The ladder = Messiah

Joh 1:51  And He says to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, From now on you will see Heaven opened, and “the angels of God ascending and descending” on the Son of Man.

DNA is a message from Elohim.  The DNA molecule is just the carrier.  Similar to the Torah.  The Torah is YHWH…the scrolls and books on which it is written is the carrier.
As George Williams puts it: “The gene is a package of information, not an object. The pattern of base pairs in a DNA molecule specifies the gene. But the DNA molecule is the medium, it’s not the message”

The DNA molecule is the instruction manual for the forming of amino acids which are made are the structural elements of proteins that turn into the biochemical units that drive all biological processes.  There are only 22 amino acids found in proteins.  Certain proteins are called enzymes.  They are catalysts (agents that are necessary for a reaction to occur but are not themselves changed in the process); others are called structural proteins which help to build cells and tissues.

If DNA can be thought of as the language of life, then the four bases can be seen as letters and the codons as arrangements of letters, or words. But like English, DNA’s language is more than words. Some codons function as punctuation marks, containing instructions to stop or start manufacturing a protein. This chemically simple yet stunningly complex DNA molecule dictates not only what proteins the organism will be made of, but how these proteins are to be arranged.

We have seen that one codon contains the instructions for one amino acid, and that sequences of codons specify the production of proteins. Groups of codons that have been arranged in “grammatically” correct sentences to form specific proteins are called “genes”.

DNA contains all the information needed to perpetuate life. This information builds in complexity from nucleotides to codons to genes, ultimately giving the complete text to form the body.

His body = the Temple

Joh 2:19  Jesus said to them, Destroy this sanctuary, and in three days I will raise it up.

The Holy of Holies contained the ark of the covenant which had the Word within.  Our cells contain our DNA which is a physical picture of that Word.

The Olive tree = His Body = the Pillar/Bethel

Romans 11:16 the Root of the Olive Tree = Messiah

Rom 11:16  Now if the firstfruit is holy, so also the lump. And if the root is holy, so also the branches.

Isa 6:13  But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance{H4678matstsebeth a monumental stone; also the stock of a tree: – pillar, substance.} is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed(Gal 3:16) shall be the substance(H4678 ROOT) thereof.

ROOT=MATSTSEBETH = PILLAR
Gen 28:10  And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.
Gen 28:11  And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.
Gen 28:12  And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
Gen 28:16  And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.
Gen 28:17  And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
Gen 28:18  And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar
{H4678 matstsebeth}, and poured oil upon the top of it.
Gen 28:19  And he called the name of that place Bethel {H1008 house of God}:: but the name of that city was called Luz* at the first.
Gen 28:20  And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,
Gen 28:21  So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:
Gen 28:22  And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth
{Isaiah 6:13} unto thee.

*Luz is linked to the spinal column, as mentioned above in connection with ‘Kundalini.’

In My Flesh I see God pg 179

“Relates the Midrash: The Roman emperor Hadrian once asked Rabbi Yehoshua ben Chananiah, ‘From which part of the body will God make man sprout forth when the dead are revived?’

He replied, ‘From the luz bone of the spinal column.’”

Gen 35:14  And Jacob set up a pillar(H4678 matstsebeth) in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon.
Gen 35:15  And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel
{H1008 בּית־אלbeytḣ’el house of God}

Mat 16:18  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
1Ti 3:15  But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Eph 2:19  Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Eph 2:20  And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph 2:21  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph 2:22  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

This is interesting to note.  Jacob’s pillar is connected with the ladder to Heaven.  Messiah applies this to Himself.  The ladder also points to DNA within our bodies which is the ‘word’ that creates our bodies.  Messiah is the Word made flesh who is the olive tree/tree of life which we can be grafted into through faith.  He is the body, we are members of that body through faith.  He is the Temple, we are the stones of the building by faith.  Satan seeks to be like the Most High {Isaiah 14} and is the great counterfeiter.  Hence, he wants a false Olive tree/tree of knowledge of good and evil.  He wants a false temple.  A ‘false’ body.  A corrupted body.  A false Israel. A corruption of DNA/the word.

Bacchus and the cross

Two Babylons Pg 178-179

The cross thus widely worshipped, or regarded as a sacred emblem, was the unequivocal symbol of Bacchus, the Babylonian Messiah, for he was represented with a head-band covered with crosses (See Fig. 45). This symbol of the Babylonian god is reverenced at this day in all the wide wastes of Tartary, where Buddhism

page 179

prevails, and the way in which it is represented among them forms a striking commentary on the language applied by Rome to the Cross. “The cross,” says Colonel Wilford, in the Asiatic Researches, “though not an object of worship among the Baud’has or Buddhists, is a favourite emblem and device among them. It is exactly the cross of the Manicheans, with leaves and flowers springing from it. This cross, putting forth leaves and flowers (and fruit also, as I am told), is called the divine tree, the tree of the gods, the tree of life and knowledge, and productive

of whatever is good and desirable, and is placed in the terrestrial paradise.” (Fig. 46). Compare this with the language of Rome applied to the cross, and it will be seen how exact is the coincidence. In the Office of the Cross, it is called the “Tree of life,” and the worshippers are taught thus to address it: “Hail, O Cross, triumphal wood, true salvation of the world, among trees there is none like thee in leaf, flower, and bud…O Cross, our only hope, increase righteousness to the godly and pardon the offences of the guilty.”

Bacchus Saturn connection

Two Babylons Page 243

As Mystery signifies the Hidden system, so Saturnclick here
signifies the Hidden god. *

* In the Litany of the Mass, the worshippers are taught thus to pray: “God Hidden,

and my Saviour, have mercy upon us.” (M’GAVIN’S Protestant) Whence can this

invocation of the “God Hidden” have come, but from the ancient worship of Saturn, the “Hidden God”? As the Papacy has canonised the Babylonian god by the name of St. Dionysius, and St. Bacchus, the “martyr,” so by this very name of “Satur” is he also enrolled in the calendar; for March 29th is the festival of “St. Satur,” the martyr. (CHAMBER’S Book of Days)

To those who were initiated the god was revealed; to all else he was hidden. Now, the name Saturn in Chaldee is pronounced Satur; but, as every Chaldee scholar knows, consists only of four letters, thus–Stur. This name contains exactly the Apocalyptic number 666:–

S = 060

T = 400

U = 006

R = 200

If the Pope is, as we have seen, the legitimate representative of Saturn, the number of the Pope, as head of the Mystery of Iniquity, is just 666. But still further it turns out, as shown above, that the original name of Rome itself was Saturnia, “the city of Saturn.” This is vouched alike by Ovid, by Pliny, and by Aurelius Victor. Thus, then, the Pope has a double claim to the name and number of the beast. He is the only legitimate representative of the original Saturn at this day in existence, and he reigns in the very city of the seven hills where the Roman Saturn formerly reigned; and, from his residence in which, the whole of Italy was “long after called by his name,”

being commonly named “the Saturnian land.” But what bearing, it may be said, has this upon the name Lateinos {see part 2 666click here}, which is commonly believed to be the “name of the beast”? Much. It proves that the common opinion is thoroughly well-founded. Saturn and Lateinos are just synonymous, having precisely the same meaning, and belonging equally to the same god. The reader cannot have forgotten the lines of Virgil, which showed that Lateinos, to whom the Romans or Latin race traced back their lineage, was represented with a glory around his head, to show that he was a “child of the Sun.” Thus, then, it is evident that, in popular opinion, the original Lateinos hadoccupied the very same position as Saturn did in the Mysteries, who was equally worshipped as the “offspring of the Sun.” Moreover, it is evident that the Romans knew that the name “Lateinos” signifies the “Hidden One,” for their antiquarians invariably affirm that Latium received its name from Saturn “lying hid” there. On etymological grounds, then, even on the testimony of the Romans, Lateinos is equivalent to the “Hidden One”; that is, to Saturn, the “god

of Mystery.” *

* Latium Latinus (the Roman form of the Greek Lateinos), and Lateo, “to lie hid,” all alike come from the Chaldee “Lat,” which has the same meaning. The name “lat,” or the hidden one, had evidently been given, as well as Saturn, to the great Babylonian god. This is evident from the name of the fish Latus, which was

worshipped along with the Egyptian Minerva, in the city of Latopolis in Egypt,

now Esneh (WILKINSON), that fish Latus evidently just being another name for

the fish-god Dagon. We have seen that Ichthys, or the Fish, was one of the names of Bacchus; and the Assyrian goddess Atergatis, with her son Ichthys is said to have been cast into the lake of Ascalon. That the sun-god Apollo had been known under the name of Lat, may be inferred from the Greek name of his mother-wife Leto, or in Doric, Lato, which is just the feminine of Lat. The Roman name

244

Latona confirms this, for it signifies “The lamenter of Lat,” as Bellona signifies

“The lamenter of Bel.” The Indian god Siva, who, as we have seen, is sometimes

represented as a child at the breast of its mother, and has the same bloody

character as Moloch, or the Roman Saturn, is called by this very name, as may be

seen from the following verse made in reference to the image found in his

celebrated temple at Somnaut:

Triquetra

The symbol was later used by Christians as a symbol of the Trinity. This appropriation was particularly easy because the triquetra conveniently incorporated three shapes that could be interpreted as Christian Ιχθς (Ichthus/fish) symbols

Another form of the triquetra is the Fleur De Lis

the Fleur de Lis is a symbol of the Priory of Sion which points back to the Merovingian (beast from the sea) bloodline seen above.

The triquetra a symbol of the Saturnian/Golden age/Aquarian age?

Rosicrucian, Masonic, Dionysian connection

Holy Blood, Holy Grail pg 185

“In the late eighteenth century, when different Masonic systems were proliferating wildly, the so-called Oriental Rite of Memphis made its appearance.  In this rite the name Ormus occurred, to our knowledge, for the first time- the name allegedly adopted by the Prieure de Sion between 1188 and 1307.  According to the Oriental Rite of Memphis, Ormus was an Egyptian sage who, around A.D. 46, amalgamated pagan and Christian mysteries and, in so doing, founded the Rose-Croix.

Footnote 26 “The underlying legend of the rite was that it descended from the Dionysian and Egyptian mysteries.  The sage Ormus is said to have combined the mysteries of Christianity to produce the original Rose-Croix.

The main symbols of the Rosicrucians is the rose and the cross.  The cross is a symbol of Bacchus that is linked to the mark of the beast and will be discussed in more detail in a future study, Yah willing… along with the Rosicrucian order and the Merovingian bloodline which is also linked to the mark of the beast.

The rose is a symbol of secrecy or mystery.  This links back to Saturn…Bacchus….mystery 666.

I.H.S. Bacchus Connection

http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/etgloss/ia-iz.htm, Encyclopedic Theosophical Glossary: Ia-Iz:

Iao (Gnostic) A three-letter mystery-name, parallel in one sense with the Sanskrit pranava, and reminiscent of triune deities represented by a triplicity of sounds. It occurs in many variations: Io, the Grecian moon goddess; Iaho, Jevo, Jehovah, and other Hebraic forms; Iaso, the possible origin of the name Jesus; Iacchos, the Bacchus of the Mysteries. It is at once threefold, fourfold, and sevenfold in meaning.

I. H. S. Well-known Christian monogram, taken as being the initials of Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus Savior of Men); and the first three letters of the Greek Iesous ({Greek char}, Jesus). It is also a monogram representative of Dionysos used in the Mysteries. As a Latin abbreviation, having mystic significance, it means acrostically, In hoc signo victor eris (in this sign thou shalt be victorious).

http://www.adelphiasophism.com/gog/gg18.html, God or Goddess? Christian Symbols, “The Cross”:

As with the cross and the labarum, so it is with many other Christian symbols. They are borrowed from paganism. The insignia on the walls of the Temple of Bacchus in Rome was a Roman cross and I H S—the three mystical letters to this day retained in Christian churches, and falsely supposed to stand for Jesus hominum salvator—Jesus mankind’s saviour. Christian women who work this sign on altar cloths for their churches little think that they are working a pagan sign. The same monogram was that of the heathen sun god Bacchus.

On the night before his final battle with Maxentius, who had denounced him as a usurper to the throne, Constantine appealed to his own god for help. According to Eusebius,

While he was praying with fervent entreaty, a most marvelous sign appeared in the heavens, the account of which, related by any other person, would be difficult of belief. But since the victorious Emperor himself declared it to the writer of this history, and confirmed his statement with an oath, who could hesitate to credit it? He said that when the sun was beginning to decline, he saw with his own eyes the trophy of a Cross of blazing light, with this inscription: “I. H. S. In this sign thou shalt conquer.” (Vita Constantin.)(Vita Constantini)

On the following night Constantine had another psychic vision. This time the figure of Christ himself appeared, wearing the same cross that Constantine had seen the night before. Constantine declared that on this occasion Christ spoke to him, telling him to place this cross on his battle flag and to march against Maxentius with full assurance of victory. Constantine obeyed, and Maxentius was defeated. In adopting this symbol — henceforth placed upon the Imperial banner and carried at the head of the army in its conquest for Christ and the Church — Constantine added two more pagan symbols to Christianity. For the long lance crossed at right angles by a staff was the ancient sign of Osiris, and the letters I. H. S. one of the names of Bacchus.

Constantine was a picture of the antichrist who did many of the same things as Antiochus Ephiphanes but Constantine did it more subvertly.

Early Christian and Byzantine Art, Beckwith, 1979, pp. 29-30, “Early Christian Art: Rome and the Legacy of the Caesars”:

P. 30, illustration 14, “Vintage scenes”:

Notice the Bacchus symbology on the sarcophagus of Constantine’s daughter.  The ivy, the wine, the cupid like figures…also notice the intertwining serpent and the pine cones coming out of the head of figure on the top.  The intertwining serpent and the pine cone are symbols for the ‘god man’ and ‘evolution’ of DNA .

Maccabees & Chanukkah

In the midst of Jeremiah 10 we read Jeremiah proclaim that there is none like unto thee O YHWH! You are great, and your Name is great in might.  Who would not fear thee or King of the nations?

Jer 10:6  There is none like You, O YHWH; You are great, and Your name is great in might.

This is a direct reference to Revelation 15 and those who overcome the mark of the beast. ‘Who is like thee’ is a reference back to the Maccabees who overcame the mark of the beast in their day.  The name Maccabee is an acronym for mi kamocah b’elim YHWH…which comes from Exodus 15.  The song of Moshe and the song of the Lamb.  Interesting also that Jeremiah 10 is the chapter which speaks of not putting a ‘christmas tree’ in your house.

Messiah Yahshua refers to this time of the Maccabees as a foreshadowing of the end of days.

Mat 24:15  When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Mat 24:16  Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

Lamsa Aramaic translation

Mat 24:15  When you see the sign of the refuse of desolation, as spoken by the prophet Daniel, accumulating in the holy place, whoever reads will understand it.

Etheridge Aramaic translation

Mat 24:15  But when you see the unclean sign of desolation which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, that it standeth in the holy place; – he who readeth let him understand!

1Ma 1:59  Now the five and twentieth day of the month they did sacrifice upon the idol altar, which was upon the altar of God.

1Ma 1:60  At which time according to the commandment they put to death certain women, that had caused their children to be circumcised.

1Ma 1:61  And they hanged the infants about their necks, and rifled their houses, and slew them that had circumcised them.

1Ma 1:62  Howbeit many in Israel were fully resolved and confirmed in themselves not to eat any unclean thing.

1Ma 1:63  Wherefore the rather to die, that they might not be defiled with meats, and that they might not profane the holy covenant: so then they died.

1Ma 1:64  And there was very great wrath upon Israel.

2Ma 5:11  Now when this that was done came to the king’s car, he thought that Judea had revolted: whereupon removing out of Egypt in a furious mind, he took the city by force of arms,

2Ma 5:12  And commanded his men of war not to spare such as they met, and to slay such as went up upon the houses.*

*Messiah specifically warned us not to do this in Matthew 24

2Ma 5:13  Thus there was killing of young and old, making away of men, women, and children, slaying of virgins and infants.

1Ma 2:27  And Mattathias cried throughout the city with a loud voice, saying, Whosoever is zealous of the law, and maintaineth the covenant, let him follow me.

1Ma 2:28  So he and his sons fled into the mountains, and left all that ever they had in the city.

1Ma 2:29  Then many that sought after justice and judgment went down into the wilderness, to dwell there:

Antiochus, a picture of the antichrist, destroyed the Temple service, and forbid Israel from keeping the Torah

1Ma 1:20  And after that Antiochus had smitten Egypt, he returned again in the hundred forty and third year, and went up against Israel and Jerusalem with a great multitude,

1Ma 1:21  And entered proudly into the sanctuary, and took away the golden altar, and the candlestick of light, and all the vessels thereof,

1Ma 1:22  And the table of the shewbread, and the pouring vessels, and the vials. and the censers of gold, and the veil, and the crown, and the golden ornaments that were before the temple, all which he pulled off.

1Ma 1:23  He took also the silver and the gold, and the precious vessels: also he took the hidden treasures which he found.

1Ma 1:24  And when he had taken all away, he went into his own land, having made a great massacre, and spoken very proudly.

1Ma 1:41  Moreover king Antiochus wrote to his whole kingdom, that all should be one people,

1Ma 1:42  And every one should leave his laws: so all the heathen agreed according to the commandment of the king.

1Ma 1:43  Yea, many also of the Israelites consented to his religion, and sacrificed unto idols, and profaned the sabbath.

1Ma 1:44  For the king had sent letters by messengers unto Jerusalem and the cities of Juda that they should follow the strange laws of the land,

1Ma 1:45  And forbid burnt offerings, and sacrifice, and drink offerings, in the temple; and that they should profane the sabbaths and festival days:

1Ma 1:46  And pollute the sanctuary and holy people:

1Ma 1:47  Set up altars, and groves, and chapels of idols, and sacrifice swine’s flesh, and unclean beasts:

1Ma 1:48  That they should also leave their children uncircumcised, and make their souls abominable with all manner of uncleanness and profanation:

1Ma 1:49  To the end they might forget the law, and change all the ordinances.

1Ma 1:50  And whosoever would not do according to the commandment of the king, he said, he should die.

Sukkotclick here & Hanukkah

2Ma 1:7  What time as Demetrius reigned, in the hundred threescore and ninth year, we the Jews wrote unto you in the extremity of trouble that came upon us in those years, from the time that Jason and his company revolted from the holy land and kingdom,

2Ma 1:8  And burned the porch, and shed innocent blood: then we prayed unto the Lord, and were heard; we offered also sacrifices and fine flour, and lighted the lamps, and set forth the loaves.

2Ma 1:9  And now see that ye keep the feast of tabernacles in the month Casleu.

2Ma 1:18  Therefore whereas we are now purposed to keep the purification of the temple upon the five and twentieth day of the month Casleu, we thought it necessary to certify you thereof, that ye also might keep it, as the feast of the tabernacles, and of the fire, which was given us when Neemias offered sacrifice, after that he had builded the temple and the altar.

2Ma 10:1  Now Maccabeus and his company, the Lord guiding them, recovered the temple and the city:

2Ma 10:2  But the altars which the heathen had built in the open street, and also the chapels, they pulled down.

2Ma 10:3  And having cleansed the temple they made another altar, and striking stones they took fire out of them, and offered a sacrifice after two years, and set forth incense, and lights, and shewbread.

2Ma 10:4  When that was done, they fell flat down, and besought the Lord that they might come no more into such troubles; but if they sinned any more against him, that he himself would chasten them with mercy, and that they might not be delivered unto the blasphemous and barbarous nations.

2Ma 10:5  Now upon the same day that the strangers profaned the temple, on the very same day it was cleansed again, even the five and twentieth day of the same month, which is Casleu.

2Ma 10:6  And they kept the eight days with gladness, as in the feast of the tabernacles, remembering that not long afore they had held the feast of the tabernacles, when as they wandered in the mountains and dens like beasts.

2Ma 10:7  Therefore they bare branches, and fair boughs, and palms also, and sang psalms unto him that had given them good success in cleansing his place.

2Ma 10:8  They ordained also by a common statute and decree, That every year those days should be kept of the whole nation of the Jews.

2Ma 10:9  And this was the end of Antiochus, called Epiphanes.

As seen in the above verses, Hanukkah is a replay of Sukkot.   Christmas is a counterfeit Sukkot. Christmas is the celebration of the birthday of the false Messiah, whereas Sukkot was the actually time that Yahshua ha’moshiach was born.  Sukkot & Hanukkah are both called the festival of lights.  Christmas is known for the beautiful lights on the houses of those who celebrate it.  This custom traces back to putting candles in windows to invite the pagan gods into your home.  And on and on it goes…these holidays are wedding rehearsals.  The Biblical feasts are rehearsals for the wedding with Messiah Yahshua and place the mark of YHWH on us.  Christmas, Easter etc are wedding rehearsals for the wedding of the antichrist and place the mark of the beast on us.

Image of Nebuchadnezzar

Dan 3:1  Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits (60), and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.

Dan 3:2  Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication (chanukah) of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

Interesting that the image of Nebuchadnezzar, which is a foreshadow of the image in Revelation 13 is associated with the word Chanukah…

Chanukah and Messiah

Joh 10:22  And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

Joh 10:23  And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.

Joh 10:24  Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

Joh 10:25  Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.

Joh 10:26  But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

Joh 10:27  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Yahshua is referring here to earlier in the chapter where He speaks of the true Shepherd versus the thief.  Here again is the association between the true Messiah versus the false Messiah.

Joh 10:1  Truly, truly, I say to you, The one not entering through the door into the sheepfold, but going up by another way, that one is a thief and a plunderer.

Joh 10:2  But the one entering through the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

Joh 10:3  The doorkeeper opens to him, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.

Joh 10:4  And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes in front of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.*

The sheep follow Him…they walk with Him.  Interesting that Enoch is known for walking with YHWH.  The name Enoch comes from the word Chanak.  The same root as Chanukah.

Joh 10:5  But they will not follow a stranger, never! But they will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of the strangers.

Joh 10:6  Jesus spoke this allegory to them, but they did not know what it was which He spoke to them.

Joh 10:7  Then Jesus again said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you that I am the door of the sheep.

Joh 10:8  All who came before Me are thieves and plunderers, but the sheep did not hear them.*

Here Messiah alludes to all of the false Messiahs that came before Him and were worshiped by those who were not of His flock.  As seen above with Bacchus, there are many parallels between the Messiah and the pagan christs.  Satan has tried to bring about the counterfeit Christ since the time of the garden and the prophecy of the seed of the woman crushing his head.  The gospel in the stars has been there since the beginning and has told the story of the Messiah so satan has tried to deceive mankind by telling of false christs that have similar traits to the true Messiah. click here

Joh 10:9  I am the door. If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in, and will go out, and will find pasture.

Joh 10:10  The thief does not come except that he may steal, and kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life and may have it abundantly.

Joh 10:11  I am the Good Shepherd! The Good Shepherd lays down His life on behalf of the sheep.

Joh 10:12  But the hireling, not even being a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and forsakes the sheep and flees. And the wolf seizes them, and scatters the sheep.

Joh 10:13  But the hireling flees because he is a hireling, and there is not a care to him concerning the sheep.

Joh 10:14  I am the Good Shepherd, and I know those that are Mine, and I am known by the ones that are Mine.

Joh 10:15  Even as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

Joh 10:16  And I have other sheep which are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock, one Shepherd.

Ultimately this is what it is all about…being one flock of the Messiah.  The adversary seeks to counterfeit this.  This is why Antiochus sought to make the people in his kingdom one.  The antichrist seeks to have one flock, one bride.  The Messiah will have one flock, one bride.  We must decide which flock and which mark we will have.
