Mark of the Beast 12 – As Above So Below

‘As above, so below’ represents the kingdom of heaven.  There are two choices.  The true Kingdom of Heaven, whose King is Messiah Yahshua or the counterfeit whose king is the beast. There are two paths, one narrow, one broad.  One leads to the Kingdom of Heaven and the tree of Life, the other to the kingdom of the beast and the tree of knowledge.

The types and shadows in the Bible point to Messiah Yahshua. The types and shadows in the mystery religions point to the antichrist.  Man can choose to repent and turn to Messiah and enter into the Wedding supper of the Lamb, or man can rebel and be a part of the wedding supper of the beast.

The Mark

The concept of ‘as above, so below’ pervades the mark of the beast subject.

χξς (666) In Hebrew would be rendered:

The ם mem sofit is only at the end of Hebrew words so the only word which could be translated correctly is וסם (v’sam) starting at the left and going right.  This makes sense as Greek is written from left to right and Hebrew is written from right to left.

סם(samek mem sofit) is translated into Hebrew as drug/poison…the vav in the front would be rendered ‘and’ or ‘adding’.  Adding poison.

The Hebrew word for number is ‘mispar’ which is from the same root as the word for book, ‘sepher’.

The number 666 then may be alluding, on a deeper level, to a poison book that is added to the Book of Life (Deuteronomy 12:32; Revelation 22:18-19).  The Quran…The Talmud (Oral law)…The Gnostic Gospels…The Catholic Catechism…  On a physical level what is the book of life? DNA.  Adding poison to the book of life = adding ‘poison’ to DNA.

This word samek mem sofit is not used in Scripture.  The root word is ‘sam’

However, looking at the word ‘sum’ which comes from this root, draws some interesting connections to 666.

Notice that this word is translated into English as name and mark.  Also notice that the word shem שם is related to this word as it is a ‘df’ defective spelling.  Shem is the word typically translated as name.  It means the character, the breath of a thing.

The Hebrew letter shin is related to ‘fire’ in ancient thought.  The Hebrew letter Mem is a pictograph of water.  Water & fire.

Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital pg 109

Notice what image is formed by combining fire and water in occultic thought.  The Hexagram.  Also notice that it is the combination of air (heaven) and earth.  וסם means to add poison or שם the name of the beast…his character.  The mixture of heaven and earth.  As above so below…beast & man.

The Greek alphabet comes from the Phoenician alphabet which, in essence, is the same as Paleo Hebrew.  χξς would be rendered in Phoenician as:

χ = which is a picture of crossed sticks

ξ= which is a picture of a thorn or branch

ς= Stigma means a mark and like the letter ξ was used to represent a coiled serpent.

Hence, the pictograph meaning of the χξς is a serpent on the branch of a tree.  It is the equivalent of the tree of knowledge of good and evil click here.

The Pythagorean Triangle pg 70
“The superstition, which was so common throughout all antiquity, of realising the duality* by combining the worship of the serpent with that of a tree, or offering rites to the Ophite deity in a sacred grove, originated with the paradisiacal serpent and the tree of knowledge.”

*Duality is another way of saying ‘as above, so below’, the union of opposites.  Good and evil, male and female, etc.  Hence, the image of the serpent in the tree represents ‘as above, so below.’

The superstition mentioned above, according to the author of ‘The Pythagorean Triangle,’ is referring to the ‘dying and rising god,’ Bacchus, Osiris, Adonis etc.  Hence, the author alludes to the serpent on the tree being linked with ‘resurrection/born again experience.’  This is the duality that the author is referring to as well.  As above, so below.  The ‘god’s (immortal) mixing with mankind (mortal).

Counterfeit sign of the true Messiah

wikianswers.com

“The Hexagram or six-pointed star, is a potent symbol of the interaction of the Divine with the mortal, of God with Humankind. It has particular significance in Judaism as the Star of David.

The Star of David, or magen David (‘Shield of David’), is a strong symbol of Jewish identity, and as a hexagram it represents the interaction of the Divine with the mortal*. It gets its name from the tradition that David carried a hexagram-shaped shield during his defeat of the giant Goliath. It has strong links with the Kabbalah, and is sometimes known as the Seal of Solomon or the Creator’s Star. When the Star of David is called the Creator’s Star, the six points each represents a day of the week and the center corresponds to the Sabbath.”

*The Hexagram is a picture of the ‘god-man’.  The beast.

Some assign a benign origin to the hexagram symbol by saying it is two dalets combined together from the ancient Hebrew name of David.

David in Ancient Hebrew is:

These letters are explained as thus:

‘The meaning of the dalet is door, the meaning of the vav is nail.  The meaning of this symbol when it is combined is the door to heaven and the door to earth is combined by the “Messiah” who comes to rule the earth as the king of mankind with a rod of iron, just as David did.”

Notice the ‘as above, so below’ theme.  Truly, Messiah Yahshua was Elohim in the flesh…this is why the adversary seeks to bring about a counterfeit that will be part ‘god/elohim’ part man.  The beast will be part fallen angelclick here.

The Star of David – Dr. Asher Eder
“In the culture of India, where it must have been known since ancient times, the six-pointed star still plays a role. It is found there in Hindu temples and shrines, and also on the flag of Indian ships, while in Nepal it is embroidered on the front of the king’s headgear.
There, it is considered a symbol of harmony between spirit and matter. In Yoga schools, this idea is well expressed by graphic representations of the human chakras with the star marking the heart chakra as the central and connecting link between the three lower “carnal” chakras and the three upper “spiritual” chakras. While the lower and upper chakras are all represented by Sanskrit letters, it is noteworthy that only the heart chakra is depicted by an abstract sign, the six-pointed star.
In the tantric teaching, the star serves as a symbol for relationship between man and wife.
Some Indian tribes of North America have used it “since ancient times as a symbol expressing the wisdom of ‘as it is above, so it is below’, as well as the union of spirit and matter, heaven and earth.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 143

“What the sun is to the solar system, the spirit is to the bodies of man; for his natures, organs, and functions are as planets surrounding the central life (or sun) and living upon its emanations.  The solar power in man is divided into three parts, which are termed the threefold human spirit of man.  All three of these spiritual natures are said to be radiant and transcendent; united, they form the Divinity in man.  Man’s threefold lower nature- consisting of his physical organism, his emotional nature, and his mental faculties-reflects the light of his three fold Divinity and bears witness of It in the physical world.  Man’s three bodies are symbolized by an upright triangle, when united in the form of a six-pointed star, were called by the Jews ‘the Star of David,’ ‘the Signet of Solomon,’ and are more commonly known today as the ‘Star of Zion.’  These triangles symbolize the spiritual and material universes linked together in the constitution of the human creature, who partakes of both Nature and Divinity.  Man’s animal nature partakes of the earth; his divine nature of the heavens; his human nature of the mediator.”

Transcendental Magic – Eliphas Levi

The phrase surrounding the oroboros in the above image is ‘Quod Superius Macroprosopus, Quod Inferius Microprosopus.’  It is equivalent to the Latin phrase ‘Quod superius sicut quot inferius’ which means ‘As above, so below.’

Macroprosopus: Spiritual Theosophical Dictionary on Macroprosopus

“Macroprosopus (Ancient Greek). ‘A Kabalistic term, made of a compound Greek word: meaning the Vast or Great Countenance (See “Kabalistic Faces”); a title of Kether, the Crown, the highest Sephira.

It is the name of the Universe, called Arikh-Anpin, the totality of that of which Microprosopus or Zauir-Anpin

“the lesser countenance”, is the part and antithesis. In its high or abstract metaphysical sense, Microprosopus is Adam Kadmon, the vehicle of Ain-Suph, and the crown of the Sephirothal Tree, though since Sephira and Adam Kadmon are in fact one under two aspects, it comes to the same thing. Interpretations are many, and they differ.”

“Microprosopus (Latin) [from Greek mikros small + prosopon face]

Qabbalistic rendition of the Chaldean phrase Ze`eyr ‘Anpin (Short Face), which designates the nine smaller Sephiroth, in contradistinction from the Macroprosopus (Long Face). Microprosopus or the nine Sephiroth are the manifested universe or Third Logos unfolded in manifestation; whereas Macroprosopus (the Crown or Kether), the first and highest of the Sephiroth, is the First and Second Logoi considered as a unit, the purely spiritual universe and its roots. Hence the Microprosopus is the Logos manifested, and of such logoi there are many in boundless space. Naturally each such universe has its own Macroprosopus, Crown, or Kether, all these universes being united by their divine-spiritual roots in the Boundless.”

In short the above image of the hexagram is a form of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life which in reality is the tree of knowledge.

The Oroboros which surrounds the above image is indication that this tree is really the tree of knowledge as well.

Oroboros

Occult Geometry – A.S. Raleigh
“One form of the circle is a serpent with a tail in its mouth…It is the return to Unity… The true circle symbolizes evolution, the Serpent Circle involution… the power brings Unity out of diversity… The Serpent Circle is, therefore, ever the symbol of the destructive Ouroboros (‘tail devourer’) is an ancient alchemy symbol depicting a snake or dragon  swallowing its own tail, constantly creating itself and forming a circle. Ouroboros is associated with Alchemy, Gnosticism and Hermeticism. It represents the cyclical nature of things, eternal return, and other things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end.  The ouroboros has several meanings interwoven into it. Foremost is the symbolism of the serpent biting, devouring, eating its own tail. This symbolizes the cyclic Nature of the Universe: creation out of destruction, Life out of Death. The ouroboros eats its own tail to sustain its life, in an eternal cycle of renewal.”

Symbol of the serpent in the tree of knowledge

“Among the Egyptians, it was a symbol of Divine Wisdom, when extended at length; and with its tail in its mouth, of Eternity.”

“The serpent is the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds by giving creation the knowledge of itself and the realization of good and evil.” (Manly P. Hall -The Secret Teachings of All Ages – pg 38)

How a Mystic Reads the Garden of Eden – Rabbi David Cooper
“One of the most ancient midrashic texts, written by Rabbi Eliezer, suggests that the serpent who seduced Eve had the appearance of a camel. Most people have never heard this idea. The Jewish oral tradition goes on to say that the angel Samael, otherwise known as Satan, rode this camel. Many say that the serpent itself was Satan.
When Rabbi Eliezer says that the serpent represented a camel, he is alluding to the number three. The word camel in Hebrew is gamal, which is the same as word as the Hebrew letter gimel. Gimel in the Hebrew alphabet represents the number three. Mathematically, the number three is necessary for the physical world–which is three dimensional–composed of three lines of direction: north-south, east-west, and up-down.”

The letter G symbol of freemasonry traces back to the Hebrew letter gimel and interestingly links to the serpent as well.  It is said that the letter G also represents the ouroboros, the snake eating it’s tail which represents immortality/resurrection.

“The BLAZING STAR IS PROPERLY SIX-POINTED… the sign of the deity, and to make that more evident, in the middle of it is usually inscribed the letter ‘G’, for God… In Co-Masonic lodges, the usual form… is a serpent curled round with its tail in its mouth… This was the original form, but the head of the serpent was altered so as to form the letter G.” (The Hidden Life in Freemasonry – C.W. Leadbeater p. 79)

Masonic writers also speak of the letter G tracing back to the Hebrew letter yod which was used as an abbreviation by Kabbalists for the Sacred Name of Elohim.

“The Ouroboros appears in many other cultures and settings as well…the Serpent Jormungandr of Norse legend, who encircled the world, and guarded Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life, is often depicted as an ouroboros.”

Wikipedia.org
“Author Henning Klovekorn has proposed that the pillar is representative of one of the roots of the Nordic Yggdrasil tree, prominent in Germanic and Norse mythology.”

The Yggdrasil tree is the ‘tree of life’ in Norse mythology but in reality points back to the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  The word Yggdrasill refers to the word yggr which means terror.  Yggdrasill literally means ‘tree of terror, or gallows.’  This points to the cross which is also a picture of the tree of knowledgeclick here.

God is a Verb pg 43 ft note 24
“The Hebrew letter gimel, when spelled out, uses the letters gimel, mem and lamed. The word golem uses the same letters. It is the word for the Frankenstein-like creatures that ancient Kabbalists are said to have created by using magical formulas of various names of God. The numeric value of golem or gimel is the same as chochma, which is usually defined as wisdom.”
Notice that this Masonic G, Ouroboros, serpent on a tree is linked with wisdom and the golem (man-beast)….

The golem is a reference to Adam Kadmon, the androgynous god man of Kabbalistic lore.

The Penguin Dictionary of Symbols – Jean Chevalier
“He [Adam] was brought to life by the breath of God, but before this, according to the Kabbalah, he was called Golem. God created him from the finest clay taken, according to Jewish tradition, from the top of Mount Zion, held to be the centre or navel of the world.”

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 375
“The Qabbalists designate them {sephirot} the ten roots of the Tree of Life. They are arranged in the form of a great human figure called Adam Qadmon–”

http://symboldictionary.net/?p=1083

“Ouroboros is a greek word, and means “tail swallower.” The ouroboros is usually depicted in the form of a snake swallowing its tail, and is usually circular, although it is sometimes depicted in a lemniscate shape. It originated in Egypt as a symbol of the sun, and represented the travels of the sun disk. In Gnosticism, it was related to the solar God Abraxas, and signified eternity and the soul of the world.”

Abraxas is viewed as the ‘Great Archon,’ the union of good and evil, male and female.  The Gematria of Abraxas is 365 which is equivalent to the number of days in the solar year, this is significant because the movement of the heavenly bodies is intimately connected to the current study.

http://www.crystalinks.com/ouroboros.html

“It {oroboros} has a strong relation to what is known as the Androgyny.  The androgyny is the united male and female principles together.  This is the prime primordial end to human endeavor, the reunion which births totality and creation.  It is not unlike the idea of androgyny, which is a duality complete.  A return to wholeness.”

Pillars of Hercules

As seen in part 11click here, A coin found in ancient Tyre depicts the pillars of Hercules with a serpent in the tree of knowledge.

Notice the relation to the next image of the oroboros.

Johann Daniel Mylius, Anatomia auri (Frankfurt 1628)

In this image numerous ‘as above, so below’ concepts are seen.  It is seen that the oroboros is in the center of the two pillars.  This represents the position of the tree of life in the previous image.  In Masonic images, it is the position of the opening of the Temple, or the ladder to heaven.  The two pillars have candles placed up top of them representing the false illumination offered by the serpent in the Garden.  Ivy is encircling the pillars which points to the false garments of righteousness that Adam and Eve made for themselves after partaking of the tree of knowledge, and on a deeper level DNA. The flower springing forth from the ivy is the rose which is used as a symbol of immortality. Above the oroboros is the phoenix which has been discussed in detail in other parts of this series on the mark of the beast.  The phoenix is a symbol of resurrection and rebirth.  ‘Ye shall not die’…  Above the phoenix are 7 hexagrams which points to the 7 rungs on the ladder of Freemasonry and Mithraism.  It is a counterfeit of the 7 Feasts of YHWH which will be discussed below in more detail.  The calendar is intimately linked to the current study.  The sun and moon imagery further links to ‘as above, so below,’ the union of opposites, male and female fused together.

The next image links the hexagram to the oroboros.  The image is supposed to be portraying the two outside pillars as the tree of knowledge of good and evil with the middle pillar being the tree of life according to Kabbalistic thought.  Notice that the outside pillars are depicted as white and black with the middle pillar being a combination of the two.

This image is depicted in another form below:

This image can also be depicted as the hexagram in the ‘Supreme Banishing Hexagram of Binah Ritual.’

Notice the link to the heavenly bodies.

Illustration from Book II: ‘Theology’ of Isis Unveiled by H.P. Blavatsky

Notice that in the center above the name Adam Kadmon is the Hebrew letters which spell ‘Yehoshua.’  This is the antichrist beast of the end, a false Yahshua.

Adam Kadmon in center of Jachin and Boaz. Androgyne of male and female, as above so below.

The Kabbalistic tree of Life is also linked to the host of heaven.

Aleister Crowley’s 777

“… the compiler of Liber 777 was a great Qabalist when he thus entitled his book … he had an academic reason for his choice of a number; for the tabulation of the book is from Kether to Malkuth, the course of the Flaming Sword; and if this sword be drawn upon the Tree of Life, the numeration of the Paths over which it passes (taking [Gimel], 3, as the non-existent path from Binah to Chesed, since it connects Macroprosopus and Microprosopus), is 777.” (777, Aleister Crowley)

777, the “flaming sword,” is the Kabbalistic path representing the descent of the Shekinah or Matronit (also represented by the downward triangle of the occult hexagram or “Star of David”).

“The flaming sword which turned every way to keep the way of the tree of life” (Gen. III, 23). Now, what is “the way of the Tree of Life”? This is the great Matrona who is the way to the great and mighty Tree of Life. Concerning this it is written: “Behold the bed which is Solomon’s; the three score valiant men are about it, of the valiant of Israel” (S.S. III, 7), namely, the Supernal Israel. “They all hold swords” (Ibid. 8), and when the Matrona moves they all move with her, as it is written: “and the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them” (Ex. XIV, 19). Is, then, the Shekinah called “the angel of the Lord”? Assuredly! (Soncino Zohar, Shemoth, Section 2, Page 50b – 52a)

Baphomet, As Above So Below, Shechinah/Matronit & the Flaming Sword

This depiction of Eliphas Levi’s baphomet is full of numerous references to the mark of the beast.  The hands are in the gesture of the ‘hand of god.’  I hand up, the other down representing the concept of ‘as above, so below.’  The sun and moon representing the male and female ‘god,’ baphomet itself is part male and part female pointing to ‘Adam Kadmon.’  The image is also part man and part beast pointing to Genesis 6click here.  The obelisk is entwined with serpents which is a representation of the caduceusclick here, and on a deeper level DNA (According to Eliphas Levi, the rod standing symbolized eternal life…).  Between the two horns on the head of the image, the third horn has a pine cone on top which represents the pineal gland or the ‘third eye’ of enlightenment in the mysteries where man ‘evolves’ into godhood when this eye is openedclick here.

Solve et Coagula

On the arms of baphomet are written solve et coagula, translated into English as “solution and coagulation.”  This motto derives from Alchemy. In Alchemy solve or solutio refers to the breaking down of elements and coaguala refers to their coming together, in the process of transmuting base metal into gold or arriving at the Philosopher’s stone.

Baphomet = ‘father of wisdom.’  From the above sources it is seen that this is not speaking of YHWH our Elohim but of the serpent who brought ‘wisdom’ to Adam & Eve through the tree of knowledge.  This is further seen in that the above authors link the image of Baphomet to the Philosopher’s Stone which is another name for the tree of knowledge and the lie that ‘ye shall not surely die.’

Holy Blood Holy Grail pg 82
“In any case, we found indisputable evidence for the charge of secret ceremonies involving a head of some kind.  Indeed, the existence of such a head proved to be one of the dominant themes running through the Inquisition records.  As with Baphomet, however, the significance of the head remains obscure.  It may perhaps pertain to alchemy.  In the alchemical process there was a phase called ‘Caput Mortuum’ or ‘Dead Head’ – the ‘Nigredo’ or ‘Blackening’ that was said to occur before the precipitation of the philosopher’s stone.”

Baphomet = Sophia

When the ATBaSH cipher is used for Baphomet, the Greek word Sophia, which means wisdom, is revealed.  Here Baphomet is displayed as wisdom.  But what wisdom?  The wisdom that comes from above?  Or sensual devilish wisdom (James 3:15), the wisdom of the tree of knowledge?

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.

Sophia = ‘Shechinah’

The term Shechinah in reference to the Glory of YHWH is not to be found in the Holy Scriptures.  The word ‘schechinah’ is not found once in the TaNaKH.  It is a term coined by Kabbalists which refers to the ‘feminine’ portion of the Ein Soph.  It is the female goddess of Judaism.  Raphael Patai, in his book ‘The Hebrew Goddess,’  states that the term Shechinah refers to a goddess by contrasting Scriptural and medieval Kabbalistic texts.  He links ‘Shekinah’ with the ‘Matronit.’

Shechinah and the ‘tree of life’

http://www.myjewishlearning.com/beliefs/Theology/God/About_God/Speaking_about_God/Gods_Names/Tetragrammaton.shtml

The Tetragrammaton in Kabbalah

“In the Kabbalah all creation is [established] by means of the letters of the Tetragrammaton in various combinations. This name contains all the Sefirot and has innumerable combinations, each representing an aspect of divine manifestation. These, contrary to Maimonides, do have magical power and those who know how to draw on this power can work miracles hence the name Baal Shem (“Master of the Name”) for this practitioner of “white” magic.

In the Lurianic Kabbalah there are four ways of spelling out the letters of the Tetragrammaton, which yield four different totals–72, 63, 45, and 52–each representing an aspect of God in His relation to the world in which He is manifested. Unlike for Maimonides, the Tetragrammaton does not represent God’s essence but His manifestations in the Sefirot. God’s essence is denoted by the term En Sof.

In another Kabbalistic understanding the Tetragrammaton represents the Sefirah Tiferet, the male principle on high, while Adonai represents Malkhut, the Shekhinah, the female principle. The combination of these two in the mind of the Kabbalist assists in the unification of these principles on high and promotes harmony in the Sefirotic realm. For this reason Kabbalistic prayer books depict the divine name in the form of an interweaving of the letters of the Tetragrammaton with those of Adonai.”

Shechinah and the flaming sword

http://mauricepinayblog.wordpress.com/category/matronit/

“… the compiler of Liber 777 was a great Qabalist when he thus entitled his book … he had an academic reason for his choice of a number; for the tabulation of the book is from Kether to Malkuth, the course of the Flaming Sword; and if this sword be drawn upon the Tree of Life, the numeration of the Paths over which it passes (taking [Gimel], 3, as the non-existent path from Binah to Chesed, since it connects Macroprosopus and Microprosopus), is 777.” (777, Aleister Crowley)

777, the “flaming sword,” is the Kabbalistic path representing the descent of the Shekinah or Matronit (also represented by the downward triangle of the occult hexagram or “Star of David”).

“The flaming sword which turned every way to keep the way of the tree of life” (Gen. III, 23). Now, what is “the way of the Tree of Life”? This is the great Matrona who is the way to the great and mighty Tree of Life. Concerning this it is written: “Behold the bed which is Solomon’s; the three score valiant men are about it, of the valiant of Israel” (S.S. III, 7), namely, the Supernal Israel. “They all hold swords” (Ibid. 8), and when the Matrona moves they all move with her, as it is written: “and the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them” (Ex. XIV, 19). Is, then, the Shekinah called “the angel of the Lord”? Assuredly!” (Soncino Zohar, Shemoth, Section 2, Page 50b – 52a)

The adversary is linked to lightning

Luk 10:18  And He said to them, I saw Satan falling out of Heaven as lightning!

As seen in part 9click here, the adversary appears as both male and female. ‘Shechinah’ is the female goddess of the Kabbalah, a picture of their ‘tree of life’ which is in reality the tree of knowledge, hence ‘shechinah’ represents the adversary in female form.

Robert Fludd, Utriusque cosmi maioris scilicet et minoris metaphysica atque technica historia, 1617

Hermes illustrated the spiritual law of As above, so below with a hexagram, consisting of two intersecting triangles or pyramids, one pointing above, and one pointing below.

Eliphas Levi’s Pentagram, figure of the microcosm, the magical formula of man.

Adam & Chavah joined together…as above so below, union of the opposites to bring forth the ‘tetragrammaton’ or the sacred name.  This image represents man becoming a god with his eyes being opened knowing good and evil.

from sichosinenglish.org/books/highlights-of-moshiach/06.htm
“In Bilaam’s prophetic vision, he states, “There steps forth a star from Jacob and there arises a scepter out of Israel.” Targum Onkelos notes that this “star” alludes to Moshiach. The Jerusalem Talmud, however, learns that this term alludes to every Jew, inasmuch as Jews are likened to the stars. How do we reconcile these seemingly contradictory interpretations?”

“Actually, both meanings are correct. The star in our verse alludes to both Moshiach and to every Jew, as the Meor Aynayim writes, in name of Baal Shem Tov, that within each and every Jew there is a `spark’ of the soul of Moshiach. This reconciles both aforesaid interpretations. As such, every Jew today has the ability to rectify the `spark’ of Moshiach within the soul, which originates from the first human being – Adam. Adam is an acrostic for: Adam (Alef), David (Daled) and Moshiach (Mem).”

Messianic Mystics – Moshe Idel
“…in the context of the larger Kabbalistic views…the secret of the name Adam apparently points to a well-known acronym: ‘Adam, David, Mashiyah’….mean(ing) that Adam’s soul has been reincarnated in the body of David, who will return as the Messiah… The Messiah therefore, will possess the soul that first inhabited Adam [the primordial ideal man] and then David.”

Satan/Saturn was believed to be the androgynous Adam-Eve of Gen. 1:27, aka the First Adam, heavenly Adam-Kadmon, creator of the world.

The Saturn Myth – David Talbott
“The first religious symbols were symbols of Saturn, and so pervasive was the planet-god’s influence that the ancients knew him as the creator, the king of the world, and Adam, the first man. …Adam was lord on earth, to rule and control it… He is creator and supporter of the world, whose body encloses all the elements of life.”

Saturn was the cosmic Adam… Saturn’s identity as the Heaven Man and first ancestor occurs again and again in Gnosticism, in alchemy, and in the traditions of the Kabala. ‘As the first man’, observes Jung, ‘Adam is the homo maximus of Saturn, the Anthropos [Man par excellence] from whom the macrocosm arose, or who is the macrocosm. He is not only the prima materia but a universal soul which is also the soul of all men. Saturn, Jung adds, is a synonym for Adam and the prima materia. The planet is the Philosophical Man or the Original Man — ‘the blessed Man on high, the arch man Adamus’.”

“Islamic mystics called Adam ‘the universal man’ or ‘the perfect man’ upholding the Cosmos. To the Ophites of the early Christian era, he was Adamus, ‘the man from on high.’”

“This quality of the central sun persists in Hebrew and Muslim imagery of Adam, the Heaven Man. The Naasenes esteemed Adam as the ‘rock’ and ‘cornerstone’ writes Jung: ‘The stone is indeed of supreme importance, because it fulfills the function of Adam Kadmon as the ‘capital stone,’ from which all the upper and lower hosts in the work of creation are brought into being.’”

Isis Unveiled – H.P. Blavatsky
“The Adam Primus, or Kadmon, the Logos of the Jewish mystics, is the same as the Grecian Prometheus, who seeks to rival with the divine wisdom… Prometheus is also the Logos of the ancient Greeks, as well as Herakles [Hercules].”

The Secret Doctrine – H.P. Blavatsky
“Adam is therefore in one sense Jehovah.”

The New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies – William Still
“…to Luciferians, God has a dual nature; he is the good god, Lucifer, and the bad god, Adonay, both supposedly equal in power, yet opposite in intent… Lucifer is further divided into Isis, the female principal, and Osiris, the male principal.”

The New Age will be called the Golden Age of Adam and Saturn.

The Rosicrucian Enlightenment
“So, in the Confessio, the second Rosicrucian manifesto, the general reformation is said to presage ‘a great influx of truth and light’ such as surrounded Adam in Paradise, and which God will allow before the end of the world. And…this millennium, this return to the golden age of Adam and Saturn, is said to be assisted by ‘the high society of the Rosicrucians’ who wish to turn all the mountains into gold. The satire here associates the whole movement with a ‘Rosicrucian’ type of alchemy, for the gold referred to is not the material gold of alchemical transmutation, but the spiritual gold of a golden age and a return to Adamic innocence.”

His Will

The concept of ‘as above, so below’ is a counterfeit of ‘Thy will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven.’

Mat 6:10  Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

What is His Will?  His Torahclick here.

Psa 40:7  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
Psa 40:8  I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

Heb 10:5  Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
Heb 10:6  In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
Heb 10:7  Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

His will is His Word
Mat 12:46  But while He was yet speaking to the crowds, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him.
Mat 12:47  Then one said to Him, Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak to You.
Mat 12:48  But answering, He said to the one speaking to Him, Who is My mother? And who are My brothers?
Mat 12:49  And stretching out His hand to His disciples, He said, Behold, My mother and My brothers.
Mat 12:50  For whoever does the will of My Father in Heaven, that one is My brother and sister and mother.

Luk 8:19  And His mother and His brothers came to Him, and were not able to come up with Him through the crowd.
Luk 8:20  And it was told to Him, saying Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside wishing to see You.
Luk 8:21  And answering, He said to them, My mother and My brothers are these: the ones hearing the Word of God, and doing it.

David wished to know the Father’s will that He may be led on the narrow path to the Kingdom
Psa 143:10  Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
Psa 25:4  Shew me thy waysclick here {the way is the Torah}, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
Psa 25:5  Lead me in thy truth click here {truth is Torah} and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

As seen in part 1click here, the definition of the mark is what God you are walking with and what path you are on.

Messiah teaches of this concept of walking in His paths to be lead to the land of uprightness.  He then warns of those who bear wicked fruit who would seek to lead astray from the narrow path.
Mat 7:12  Therefore, all things, whatever you desire that men should do to you, so also you should do to them; for this is the Law and the Prophets.
Mat 7:13  Go in through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are the ones entering in through it.
Mat 7:14  For narrow is the gate, and constricted is the way that leads away into life, and few are the ones finding it.
Mat 7:15  But beware of the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside they are plundering wolves.
Mat 7:16  From their fruits you shall know them. Do they gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?
Mat 7:17  So every good tree produces good fruits, but the corrupt tree produces evil fruits.
Mat 7:18  A good tree cannot produce evil fruits, nor a corrupt tree produce good fruits.
Mat 7:19  Every tree not producing good fruit is cut down and is thrown into fire.
Mat 7:20  Then surely from their fruits you shall know them.

Notice that Messiah links the 2 paths to 2 types of trees.  The narrow path to the Kingdom which is linked with the good fruit of the tree of Life, or the broad path to destruction that is linked with the tree of knowledge.

The path that man chooses is linked to the mark that he receives.  The narrow path to the Kingdom and the mark of YHWH or the broad path that leads to destruction and the mark of the beast.

The root word for mark is a picture of an ox plowing toward a mark.  In ancient Hebrew thought, Elohim was seen as the strong ox that we are yoked with in covenant relationship.  The word for mark is a picture of walking with your Elohim toward your mark/goal (Philippians 3:14).  Walking with Messiah (Mat 11:29) towards the Kingdom of Heaven or walking with the adversary towards sheol. The word for kingdom in Hebrew is ‘malkut’ which comes from the root ‘lakh’ which means to walk.

This is what Shaul was alluding to in his letter to the Corinthians.

2Co 6:14  Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership does righteousness have with lawlessness? And what fellowship does light have with darkness?
2Co 6:15  And what agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever?

2Co 6:16  And what agreement does a temple of God have with idols? For you are a temple of the living God, even as God said, “I will” dwell in them and “walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” Lev. 26:12; Ezek. 37:27
2Co 6:17  Because of this, “come out from among them” “and be separated,” says the Lord, “and do not touch the unclean thing,” and I will receive you. Isa. 52:11
2Co 6:18  “And I will be a Father to you, and you will be sons” and daughters to Me, says the Lord Almighty. 2 Sam. 7:8, 14; Isa. 43:6

BelialClick Here

The word belial means without the yoke.  Men of belial are men of lawlessness.

Belial:  Belial is derived by some from beli, not, and âl, over, i.e., one so proud and envious as not to bear a superior; by others, from beli, not, and ol, a yoke, i.e., a lawless, ungovernable person, ανδρες παρανομοι, “lawless men,” as the LXX render.

The Yoke is Torah/Word (Matthew 11:28-30).  It is associated with walking with Messiah as His disciple click here.  The lawless are yoked to sin and are enslaved (John 8:34; Deuteronomy 28:47-48; Leviticus 26:13; Jeremiah 30:8)  Another word for yoke in Hebrew is ‘tsamad’ {Numbers 25:3; Psalm 106:28} which also means a bracelet as is used in marriage.  We can yoke up with Messiah and enter the wedding supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:9) or we can yoke up with the lawless one and be a feast for the fowls. (Revelation 19:17-19).

Belial are the thorns (2 Samuel 23:6; 2 Corinthians 12:7-9), the tares among the wheat (Deuteronomy 13:13; 2 Corinthians 6:15-16) who are to be burned (Matthew 13:42).  They are associated with the army of satan (2 Corinthians 12:7)Click Here.

The Covenant

The letter ת ‘tav’ in pictograph form is two crossed sticks which has the meaning of a covenant.  We can choose the covenant of Life in Messiah Yahshua (Isaiah 42:6; 49:8; Zechariah 9:11; Jeremiah 31:31; Matthew 26:28) or we can choose the covenant of death (Isaiah 28:15) which promises deliverance from death (ie false tree of life which is the tree of knowledge) but in reality leads to hell.

Covenant relationship is linked with walking together. (1 Kings 8:23; 2 Kings 23:3; 2 Chronicles 6:14; 34:31; Psalm 78:10)

Gen 17:1  And when Abram was ninety nine years old, Jehovah appeared to Abram and said to him, I am the Almighty God! Walk before me and be perfect;
Gen 17:2  and I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you very much.
Amo 3:3  Will two walk together (Heb. yachad – one) except they are agreed?
The word translated as ‘agreed’ here is ‘ya’ad.’  This will be discussed in more detail below as it is in relation to marriage and the feasts.

Walking together in covenant with the Most High is equivalent to knowing His Way.  Knowing His Way is Knowing Him (Exodus 33:13).click here

Patience & His Will

Heb 10:36  For ye have need of patience*, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
*What is patience?
Rev 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

The object of becoming perfect/mature is to do His perfect will.

Heb 13:20  Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
Heb 13:21 
Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

This was the call of Abraham

Gen 17:1  And when Abram was ninety nine years old, YHWH appeared to Abram and said to him, I am the Almighty God! Walk before me and be perfect;

This is the call of His people

Mat 5:48  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

We are to use our gifts so that the body can be perfect in His will

Eph 4:11  And indeed He gave some to be apostles; and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12  with a view to the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ,
Eph 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

The word will comes from ratson

H7522 רצן  רצון râtsôn
pleasure, delight, favour, goodwill, acceptance, will

This comes from the root:

Ratzon rootratzon 2

Man is likened unto clay formed from the Hand of the Potter (Isaiah 64:8).  We must be broken so that His Will can reign in our lives. That we may say, ‘not my will be done, but Yours be done.’

Luk 22:42  saying, Father, if You purpose it, take away this cup from Me; but not My will be done, but let Yours be done.

This is the path of life that leads to perfection.

Heb 5:6  As He also says in another place, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek,” Psa. 110:4
Heb 5:7  who in the days of His flesh was offering both petitions and entreaties to Him being able to save Him from death, with strong crying and tears, and being heard from His godly fear;
Heb 5:8  though being a Son, He learned obedience from what He suffered
Heb 5:9  and having been perfected, He came to be the Author of eternal salvation to all the ones obeying Him,
Heb 5:10  having been called out by God as a High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek.

We are perfected in sufferings

1Pe 4:1  Therefore, Christ having suffered for us in the flesh, also you arm yourselves with the same thought, because he having suffered in the flesh has been made to rest from sin,
1Pe 4:2  for him no longer to live in the lusts of men, but to live the remaining time in the flesh in the will of God.

Rom 8:17  And if children, also heirs; truly heirs of God, and joint-heirs of Christ, if indeed we suffer together, that we may also be glorified together.

Dying to the flesh

Rom 6:5  For if we have been joined together in the likeness of His death, so also shall we be in the resurrection,
Rom 6:6  knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be nullified, so that we no longer serve sin.
Rom 6:7  For the one that died has been justified from sin.
Rom 6:8  But if we died with Christ, we believe that also we shall live with Him,
Rom 6:9  knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death no longer lords it over Him.
Rom 6:10  For in that He died, He died to sin once for all; but in that He lives, He lives to God.
Rom 6:11  So also you count yourselves to be truly dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Rom 6:12  Then do not let sin reign in your mortal body, to obey it in its lusts.
Rom 6:13  Neither present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as one living from the dead, and your members instruments of righteousness to God.

Jas 1:2  My brothers count it all joy when you fall into various trials,
Jas 1:3  knowing that the proving of your faith works patience.
Jas 1:4  But let patience have its perfective work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
1Pe 5:10  Now the God of all grace, the One calling you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, you having suffered a little, Himself will perfect, confirm, strengthen, establish you.

2Ti 2:11  Faithful is the Word: for if we died with Him, we also shall live with Him;
2Ti 2:12  if we endure(KJV suffer)*,we shall also reign with Him; if we deny Him, that One will deny us;
2Ti 2:13  if we are unfaithful, that One remains faithful; He is not able to deny Himself.

Heb 10:36  For you have need of patience, that having done the will of God you may obtain the promise.
Heb 12:2  looking to the Author and Finisher of our faith, Jesus, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, “and sat down at the right” of the throne of God. Psa. 110:1
Heb 12:3  For consider Him who had endured such gainsaying of sinners against Himself, that you do not grow weary, fainting in your souls.

Mat 16:24  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Mat 16:25  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
Mat 16:26  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Mar 10:29  And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,
Mar 10:30  But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
Luk 14:26  If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

Heb 12:2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Heb 12:3  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
Heb 12:4  Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
Heb 12:5  And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
Heb 12:6  For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Heb 12:7  If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
Heb 12:8  But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Heb 12:9  Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

1Pe 1:8  Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
1Pe 1:9  Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

Entrance to the Kingdom

Php 3:8  But, no, rather I also count all things to be loss because of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them to be trash, that I might gain Christ
Php 3:9  and be found in Him; not having my own righteousness of Law, but through the faith of Christ, having the righteousness of God on faith,
Php 3:10  to know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, having been conformed to His death,
Php 3:11  if somehow I may attain to a resurrection out of the dead.
Php 3:12  Not that I already received or already have been perfected, but I press on, if I also may lay hold, inasmuch as I also was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
Php 3:13  Brothers, I do not count myself to have laid hold, but one thing I do, forgetting the things behind, and stretching forward to those things before,
Php 3:14  I press on after a mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Php 3:15  Then as many as are perfect, let us be of this mind; and if you think anything differently, God will also reveal this to you.
Php 3:16  Yet as to where we have arrived, walk by the same rule, being of the same mind.
Php 3:17  Be fellow-imitators of me, brothers, and consider those walking this way, even as you have us for a pattern.
Php 3:18  For many walk as hostile to the cross of Christ, of whom I often told you, and now even weeping I say it,
Php 3:19  whose end is destruction, whose god is the belly, and who glory in their shame, the ones thinking earthly things.
Php 3:20  For our citizenship is in Heaven, from where we also wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Php 3:21  who will transform our body of humiliation, for it to be conformed to His body of glory, according to the working of Him to be able even to subject all things under Himself.

Act 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

The counterfeit path is ‘as above, so below.’  Man becoming god, knowing good and evil and choosing his own way.  ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.’  The true path is to die to the flesh that we might live to the Spirit (Romans 8:13).  The false path is preservation of the flesh, the ultimate fulfillment of which is manipulation of DNA in on attempt to overcome death.

Rom 5:19  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Eph 2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Eph 2:3  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Seed of falsehood

Joh 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him...{TRUTH =MESSIAH, TORAHclick here}
Isa 57:4  Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood,
Mat 23:27  Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitened graves which outwardly indeed appear beautiful, but within are full of bones of the dead, and of all uncleanness.
Mat 23:28  So you also indeed outwardly appear righteous to men, but within are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
Mat 23:33  Serpents! Offspring of vipers! How shall you escape the judgment of Hell?

Isa 1:4  Woe, sinful nation, a people heavy with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, sons who corrupt! They have forsaken YHWH; they have scorned the Holy One of Israel. They are estranged backward.

Isa 30:1  Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
Isa 30:8 And go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it on a scroll, that it is for a latter day, a witness forever:
Isa 30:9  That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:
Isa 30:10  Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
Isa 30:11  Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
2Ti 4:3 For there shall be a time when they shall not bear sound teaching, but according to their own desires, they shall heap up for themselves teachers tickling the ear,
2Ti 4:4 and they shall indeed turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to myths.

Tit 1:13  This testimony is true; for which cause convict them severely, that they may be sound in the faith,
Tit 1:14  not listening to Jewish myths and commandments of men, having turned away from the truth.
Tit 1:15  Truly, all things are pure to the pure, but to the ones being defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience has been defiled.
Tit 1:16  They profess to know God, but by their works they deny Him, being abominable and disobedient, and worthless to every good work.

The Kingdom of Light vs the kingdom of darkness

Col 1:9  For this cause also, from the day in which we heard, we do not cease praying on your behalf, and asking that you may be filled with the full knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding,
Col 1:10  for you to walk worthily of the Lord to all pleasing, bearing fruit in every good work and growing into the full knowledge of God;
Col 1:11  being empowered with all power according to the might of His glory, to all patience and long-suffering with joy;
Col 1:12  giving thanks to the Father, who has made us fit for a share of the inheritance of the saints in light,
Col 1:13  who delivered us out of the authority of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
Col 1:14  in whom we have redemption through His blood, the remission of sins;
Col 1:15  who is the image of the invisible God, the First-born of all creation.

Eph 5:1  Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
Eph 5:2  And walk in love(click here), as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
Eph 5:3  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
Eph 5:4  Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Eph 5:5  For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Eph 5:6  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Eph 5:7  Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Eph 5:8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light (Proverbs 6:23) in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Eph 5:9  For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth (Psa 119:142)  Notice that Paul links the Kingdom to the Fruit of the Spirit.  The Fruit of the Spirit comes from the tree of Life in the Kingdom of Light.  The fruit of wickedness comes from the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the kingdom of darkness.
Eph 5:10  Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. (Psa 40:8; Deu 5:29; 10:12)  Here Paul links this kingdom to His Will mentioned above.
Eph 5:11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Eph 5:12  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Eph 5:13  But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Eph 5:14  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light (Isa 60:1).

Light & the Word

TORAH/WORD is Light
Pro 6:23  For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
Psa 119:105  NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
By looking at the gematria of the phrase ‘let there be light’ we see another connection to the Word

Light

WISDOM/SPIRIT

Wis 7:24  For wisdom is more moving than any motion: she passeth and goeth through all things by reason of her pureness.
Wis 7:25  For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure influence flowing from the glory of the Almighty: therefore can no defiled thing fall into her.
Wis 7:26  For she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the unspotted mirror of the power of God, and the image of his goodness.

YAHSHUA IS THE LIGHT
Isa 9:2  The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
Joh 1:9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
Joh 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Joh 9:5  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
Joh 12:46  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

TORAH AND TESTIMONY
Isa 8:20  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
Rev 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Isa 60:1  Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of YHWH has risen on you!
Isa 60:2  For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples. But YHWH shall rise on you, and His glory shall be seen on you.

The Hebrew words for ‘light’ and ‘word’ are also similar in that they have the same meaning of order.

Light comes from the following root word:

Word comes from the following root word:

The English word order comes from the Latin ordo.  Tracing this word back in the Latin Vulgate brings forth an interesting connection to the concept of light being order.

Job 10:21  before I go; and I shall not return; to the land of darkness, and the shadow of death;
Job 10:22  a land of obscurity, the darkness of the shadow of death, and without any order (Latin ordo, Heb. seder); even the shining is as darkness.

Job is speaking of death/sheol/hell as a land of darkness without order.  This is the true meaning of ‘hell on earth’.  No order.  No light.  No relationship with YHWH, hence no Torah.  This is the true definition of the ‘new world order’ whose king is the man of lawlessness.

This is what the ‘new world order’ is.  It is a false light/order which in reality is pure darkness.  Interestingly, Lucifer means light bearer/bringer (2 Corinthians 11:14; Isaiah 14:14) but in reality is the bringer of darkness and lawlessness.  This is what Messiah spoke of:

Mat 6:23  But if your eye is evil, all your body is dark. If, then, the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

Garden of Eden

The Kingdom of Heaven is described in the Holy Scriptures as the Garden of Eden restored.

Isa 51:3  For YHWH comforts Zion. He comforts all her desolations, and He makes her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of YHWH; joy and gladness shall be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of singing praise.
Eze 36:33  So says the Lord YHWH: In the day I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built.
Eze 36:34  And the desolated land shall be cultivated, rather than being a ruin in the eyes of all passing by.
Eze 36:35  And they shall say, This land that was desolated has become like the garden of Eden. And the wasted and desolated and razed cities are fortified and inhabited.
Eze 36:36  And the nations left all around you shall know that I, YHWH, built the razed places and planted that which was desolated. I, YHWH have spoken it and will do it.

Satan desires to counterfeit the restoration of Eden.

When the day of YHWH comes, it comes upon a time of a counterfeit Eden (paradise).

Joe 2:1  Blow a ram’s horn in Zion, and shout an alarm in My holy mountain. Let all those living in the land tremble. For the day of YHWH approaches; it is near,
Joe 2:2  a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, as the dawn spread out on the mountains, a great and a strong people. There has never been the like, nor shall there ever be again to the years of many generations;
Joe 2:3  a fire devours before it, and a flame burns behind it.
The land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them is a desolate wilderness; yea, also there is no escape to them.

Sodom and Gomorrah likened to the Garden of Eden

Gen 13:10  And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw all the circuit of Jordan, that it was well-watered before YHWH destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even like the garden of YHWH, like the land of Egypt as you come to Zoar.

What is the land of Israel called in the end times?
Rev 11:8  And their bodies will be on the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom, and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified.

Gen 13:10 also likens this false Eden to Egypt. This is where Yisrael was in bondage and slavery before deliverance. So too in the end there will be slavery and bondage as the prophets speak of the Exodus in the end being likened to the Egyptian exodus (Micah 7:15; Jeremiah 16:14-21).
After the counterfeit dividing of the land, the fallen angels and false Israel will enslave the ‘goyim’ as a counterfeit fulfillment of the Kingdom of Heaven where Yahshua rules as King and His kings and priests rule the earth with a rod of iron (Revelation 2:26-27; 12:5; Daniel 2:44) .

Satan’s kingdom is ruled by Adam Kadmon, the counterfeit Messiah.  Adam Kadmon is the ‘god-man’ of the Kabbalah.

The Kingdom of Heaven is ruled by the Last Adam, Messiah Yahshua (1 Corinthians 15:45).  His bride will rule and reign with Him.  The bride of the beast will rule and reign with him.

Zion vs. Sion

The difference between true Zion and false Zion is seen in detail in part 11click here.  A small portion of that study is reproduced here to link to the concept of ‘as above, so below’ and its connections to the mark of the beast.

Who is the true Zion of Scripture?  It is the people of  YHWH.

Isa 51:16  And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.
Psa 146:10  The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
Psa 149:1  Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
Psa 149:2  Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Psa 149:3  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
Psa 149:4  For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
Zec 9:13  When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man.

Ephraim & Judah = Zion.  This is the true two houses of Israel who are grafted into the Olive Tree who is Messiah Yahshua.

Messiah Yahshua is the Olive tree.  He is the root.  He is the source of life.  The branches of Yisrael come forth from Him.  If we are not in Him, we are dried up and cast into the fire.  Let anyone who believes that genealogy without faith in Him makes you a part of the olive tree take heed.

Joh 15:1  I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
Joh 15:2  Every branch{G2814} in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Joh 15:3  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
Joh 15:4  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch{G2814} cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
Joh 15:5  I am the vine, ye are the branches{G2814}: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
G2814 κλῆμα klēma klay’-mah From G2806; a limb or shoot (as if broken off): – branch.

YISRAEL’S BRANCHES BROKEN
Israel mixed with the heathens and grafted in their people and their ways making an alien/strange vine.  This is why YHWH cut down the tree and made it anew through Messiah
Jer 2:21  Yet I planted you a choice vine, wholly a true seed. How then have you turned into the deviant shoots of an alien vine to Me?

Jer 11:16  The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.
Jer 11:17  For the LORD of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee, for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Baal.
Luk 3:8  Then bring forth fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say within yourselves, We have Abraham as father. For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham out of these stones.
Luk 3:9  And also the axe is already laid to the root of the trees; therefore, every tree not producing good fruit is being cut down and being thrown into the fire.

Jeremiah says that the Olive tree is Israel.  Who is Israel?

The Messiah is Israel
Isa 49:3  And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.
Isa 49:5  And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.

This prophecy is speaking of Messiah.  Messiah is the Servant Israel.
Isa 49:6  And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved(v’netsri-Netsarim=followers of Messiah) of Israel.I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation(H3444yeshua) unto the end of the earth.

The Holy Spirit makes it clear that this prophecy is speaking of Yahshua our Lord.

Luk 2:29  Now, Master, You will let Your slave go in peace according to Your Word;
Luk 2:30  because my eyes saw Your Salvation,
Luk 2:31  which You prepared before the face of all the peoples;
Luk 2:32  a Light for revelation to the nations, and the Glory of Your people Israel.

The word for tribe points to the olive tree imagery.

H7626 שׁבט shêbeṭ shay’-bet

ROMANS 11 THE REDEEMED OLIVE TREE OF ISRAEL
“GENTILES” and NATURAL BORN ISRAELITES ARE GRAFTED INTO ISRAEL.  ONLY THOSE IN MESSIAH ARE IN THE OLIVE TREE OF ISRAEL.
Rom 11:13  For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
Rom 11:14  If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
Rom 11:15  For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? (Eze 37; Zec 12:10; Mic 5:3)
Rom 11:16  For if the firstfruit (1Cor 15:52) be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root (Isa 6:13; Gal 3:16) be holy, so are the branches (Joh 15:5).

The firstfruit and the root of this tree is Messiah.  He is the only One from which holiness comes.
Rom 11:17  And if some of the branches be broken off (Jer 11:16), and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; (Isa 14:1; Deu 29:9-12; Zec 2:11)
Rom 11:18  Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
Rom 11:19  Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.
Rom 11:20  Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
Rom 11:21  For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
Rom 11:22  Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
Rom 11:23  And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
Rom 11:24  For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?
Rom 11:25  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
Rom 11:26  And so all Israel (BOTH HOUSES) shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: (Isa 59:20; 45:25)
Rom 11:27  For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins…..JEREMIAH 31:31 The New Covenant

WILD BRANCHES GRAFTED IN
Rom 11:17  And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

NATURAL BRANCHES GRAFTED IN
Rom 11:24  For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

This engrafting process is call scion(pronounced Zion).
Scion
SCION. [See Cion.]
Cion
CION, n. A young shoot, twig or sprout of a tree, or plant, or rather the cutting of a twig, intended for ingrafting on another stock; also, the shoot or slip inserted in a stock for propagation.

Isa 51:16  And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.

True Zion are those who are grafted into the Olive Tree of Yisrael who is Messiah.  The counterfeit is the Zionism we see in the world today which uplifts a false olive tree of Israel.  As Shaul says, not all those of Israel are Israel.click here

The People, the Land & the Covenant are intimately linked together.

Messiah & the Land

Isa 7:14  So, The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold! The virgin will conceive and will bring forth a son; and she shall call His name Immanuel.
Isa 8:8  And he shall pass through Judah. He shall overflow and go over. He shall reach to the neck; and his wings will be stretching out, filling the breadth of your land, O Immanuel.
Isa 8:9  O peoples, suffer evil, and be broken! And listen, all from the far places of the earth; gird yourselves, and be broken. Gird yourselves and be broken!
Isa 8:10  Counsel a counsel, and it is frustrated; speak a word, and it shall not rise; for God is with us.

The body of Messiah & the land

Deu 32:43  Rejoice, O nations, of His people; for He shall avenge the blood of His servants, and shall render vengeance to His foes, and shall have mercy on His land and His people.

His land and His people is literally ‘His land, His people’

Zion = a land & a people

Isa 51:16  And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.

Isa 60:14  Also the sons of ones afflicting you shall come bowing to you. And all who despised you shall fall at the soles of your feet. And they shall call you, The City of YHWH, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Isa 62:11  Behold, YHWH has made it to be heard to the end of the earth; Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold! Your salvation comes! Behold! His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.
Isa 62:12  And they shall call them, The Holy People, the Redeemed of YHWH. And to you it shall be called, Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.

Mat 5:14  You are the light of the world. A city situated on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Mat 5:15  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under the grain measure, but on the lampstand; and it shines for all those in the house.
Mat 5:16  So let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father in Heaven.

Rev 21:9  And one of the seven angels came to me, he having the seven bowls being filled with the seven last plagues, and spoke with me, saying, Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.

Rev 21:10  And he carried me in spirit onto a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God,

Rev 21:11  having the glory of God. And its light was like a very precious stone, as a jasper stone, being clear as crystal,
Rev 21:12  and having a great and high wall, having twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates and names having been inscribed, which are of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel.

The people, the land, & the Covenant are linked

Lev 26:42  Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.

His Name

1Ki 14:21  And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother’s name was Naamah an Ammonitess.

The land is linked with the Temple

1Ki 9:3  And YHWH said to him, I have heard your prayer and your supplication with which you have made supplication before Me; I have sanctified this house that you have built to put My name there forever; and My eyes and My heart shall be there forever.

Deu 12:5  But unto the place* which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come:

*maqom is linked with His name, the Temple & ‘seeing’ Elohim

The gematria of YHWH is 26 which corresponds to the three space dimensions: length, width and depth which contain 6 surfaces, 12 lines and 8 points (26).

The gematria of maqom = 746

This is equal to the Name

Lev 24:11  And the son of the woman of Israel blasphemed the Name, and cursed. And they brought him in to Moses; and his mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.

Profaning His name is the 3rd commandment spoken by YHWH in Exodus 20.  It was the 3rd day of creation that the dry land appeared.click here

Gen 1:9  And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place (maqom), and let the dry land appear. And it was so.

Amazingly, Yahshua of Nazareth has the same gematria as maqom and the Name.

This number 746 also links to His body.  The word for ‘Christian’ (Naztrut) is 746.  The phrase, ‘therefore ye are my witnesses, saith YHWH, that I am El’ equals 746.  And the Greek word ‘authority’ has the same gematria.

Rev 2:26  And the one overcoming, and the one keeping My works* until the end, “I will give to him authority over the nations,”

Rev 2:27  and “He will shepherd them with an iron staff” (they are “broken to pieces like clay vessels”), as I also have received from My Father. Psa. 2:8, 9

*The Gematria of maqom without using the final form as 400 but as 40 is 186.  ‘His work’ in Hebrew (pa’alu) also has the gematria of 186.

YHWH is also related to 186.  Take each of the letters from YHWH, square them (since a “place” is an area, so squared units), and you get 100+25+36+25=186.

Gen 28:16  And Jacob awakened from his sleep, and said, Surely YHWH is in this place (bamaqom), and I did not know.

Gen 28:17  And he was afraid, and said, How fearful is this place (maqom)! 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. And yet the name of the city was at first Luz.

Literally, in the hills of this area the Name of YHWH is carved out

So it is seen that His Name is linked to the land, the land is also linked to the hand, where the mark is placed.

The hand = body of Messiah

Lines drawn into the ‘hand’ of the Most High
Isa 49:15  Can a woman forget her suckling child, from pitying the son of her womb? Yes, these may forget, yet I will surely not forget you.
Isa 49:16  Behold, I have carved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are always before Me.
WALLS=Lines on Hands=12 Walls of Yisrael (Revelation 21:12-27)

12 lines on the 4 fingers=12 tribes, 12 walls

The Palm of hands have 3 lines forming the letter shin.  This links to the promised land.  As is seen in part 2click here, the letter shin is used in occult thought to represent 666.   Again the counterfeit concept is displayed when exposing the mark of the beast.

The Land is linked with the People

Deu 32:43  Rejoice, O nations, of His people; for He shall avenge the blood of His servants, and shall render vengeance to His foes, and shall have mercy on His land and His people.

- literally His land, His peopleאדמתו עמו׃

Isa 51:16  And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.

In the reference to the 12 tribes and the walls of New Jerusalem above the same concept is seen.  It is referred to as His Bride.  His Bride is a people and a land.

Rev 21:9  And one of the seven angels came to me, he having the seven bowls being filled with the seven last plagues, and spoke with me, saying, Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
Rev 21:10  And he carried me in spirit onto a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God,

The word for tribes is shebet which is pictured in the natural by a branch or scion
H7626 שׁבט shêbeṭ shay’-bet
From an unused root probably meaning to branch off; a scion, that is, (literally) a stick (for punishing, writing, fighting, ruling, walking, etc.) or (figuratively) a clan: -  X correction, dart, rod, sceptre, staff, tribe.

The Olive Tree (Romans 11:17-27)

Joh 15:5  I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one abiding in Me, and I in him, this one bears much fruit, because apart from Me you are not able to execute, nothing.

Rom 11:16  For if the firstfruit (1Cor 15:52 -Messiah) be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root (Isa 6:13; Gal 3:16 – Messiah) be holy, so are the branches (Joh 15:5).

Isa 11:1  And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem (H1503 גּזע geza‛)of Jesse, and a Branch{H5342 נצר netser*} shall grow (parah -bear fruit) out of his roots:

*Netser is the origin of the name ‘Christian’.Netsarim

The following prophecy is speaking of the Messiah and the 7 Spirits which rest upon Him (Revelation 4:5; 5:6), corresponding to the 7 Branches of the Menorah.
Isa 11:2  And the Spirit of YHWH shall rest on Him; He will have the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and power, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YHWH.
Isa 11:3  And He is made to breathe in the fear of YHWH. But He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears.

WILD BRANCHES GRAFTED IN
Rom 11:17  And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

NATURAL BRANCHES GRAFTED IN
Rom 11:24  For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

GRAFTING (SCION)
What is the definition of scion(pronounced Zion)?

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary:

Scion
SCION. [See Cion.]
Cion
CION, n. A young shoot, twig or sprout of a tree, or plant, or rather the cutting of a twig, intended for ingrafting on another stock; also, the shoot or slip inserted in a stock for propagation.

Isa 51:16  And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.

True Zion are those who are grafted into the Olive Tree of Yisrael, who is Messiah.  The counterfeit is the Zionism we see in the world today which uplifts a false olive tree of Israel.  As Shaul says, not all those of Israel are Israel (Romans 9:6).
Those grafted into the Olive Tree are Zion, the new creation…born againclick here

2Pe 1:2  Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
2Pe 1:3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pe 1:4  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature
(G544)

G5449 φύσις phusis
foo’-sis
From G5453; growth (by germination or expansion), that is, (by implication) natural production (lineal descent); by extension a genus or sort; figuratively native disposition, constitution or usage: – ([man-]) kind, nature ([-al]).

What is the counterfeit?  A false Olive Tree, a false grafting in process, a false Zionclick here…partaking of the ‘divine nature’ of the adversary, the original ‘beast’ of Scripture (Genesis 3:1).

Gal 6:15  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
Gal 6:16  And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

2Co 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

The Olive Tree is Yahshua, when we are grafted into Him we partake of His divine nature.  We become the Israel of Elohim.
Rom 11:24  For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?


The Messiah is Israel
Isa 49:3  And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified. {The Servant who glorifies Elohim is Messiah – Isaiah 42:1; 52:13; 53:10; Zechariah 3:8; Philippians 2:7; John 13:31-32; 17:4)
Isa 49:5  And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.
Isa 49:6  And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes
of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel.I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation(H3444yeshua) unto the end of the earth.

The Holy Spirit makes it clear that this prophecy is speaking of Yahshua our Lord.

Luk 2:29  Now, Master, You will let Your slave go in peace according to Your Word;
Luk 2:30  because my eyes saw Your Salvation,
Luk 2:31  which You prepared before the face of all the peoples;
Luk 2:32  a Light for revelation to the nations, and the Glory of Your people Israel.

The counterfeit

Above we see that the people, the land & the covenant are all linked.  The Temple & the body/bride of Messiah are linked to this covenant and land as well.  The adversary seeks to counterfeit this with a false, corrupt body, corrupted land, corrupt covenant, and corrupt temple.

For a time while Israel was in rebellion and following Baal and Asherah, the pentagramclick here
was the seal of Jerusalem.

This will be replayed in the end when the adversary seeks to set up a false Garden of Eden and sit on the sides of the north (Isaiah 14:13; Psalm 48:2).  This is why the book of Revelation refers to Jerusalem as Sodom & Egypt at that time.

Rev 11:8  And their bodies will be on the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom, and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified.

Jerusalem’s latitude and longitude at the exact center of the city totals 666.  N 31:47 and E 35:13 = 3147 + 3513 = 6660 = 666.

Interestingly, at the 31:47N, 35:13E, the hotel of Arcadia is found.  The hotel boasts as being directly in the center of the city of Jerusalem.  As seen in part 10click here, Arcadia is another name for Atlantis, the false garden of Eden.

Paul makes reference to this concept in Galatians when comparing Jerusalem above versus Jerusalem below.  Spirit vs flesh, freedom vs bondage.  Isaac vs Ishmael.  Zion vs Zionism.

Gal 4:22 For it has been written, Abraham had two sons, one out of the slave woman and one out of the free woman.
Gal 4:23 But, indeed, he of the slave woman has been born according to flesh, and he out of the free woman through the promise,
Gal 4:24 which things are being allegorized, for these are two covenants, one, indeed, from Mount Sinai bringing forth to slavery (which is Hagar,
Gal 4:25 for Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, and she slaves with her children),
Gal 4:26 but the Jerusalem from above is free, who is the mother of us all;
Gal 4:27 for it has been written, “Be glad, barren one not bearing; break forth and shout, the one not travailing; for more are the children of the desolate rather than she having the husband.” Isa. 54:1
Gal 4:28 But, brothers, we are children of promise according to Isaac.
Gal 4:29 But then, even as he born according to flesh persecuted the one according to Spirit, so it is also now.
Gal 4:30 But what says the Scripture? “Cast out the slave woman and her son, for in no way shall the son of the slave woman inherit with the son of the free woman.” Gen. 21:10
Gal 4:31 Then, brothers, we are not children of a slave woman but of the free woman.

Paul also speaks of not all Israel being Israel and uses the same language as the above verses.  The children of the promise are true Israel.

Rom 9:6 Not, however, that God’s Word has failed. For not all those of Israel are Israel,
Rom 9:7 nor because they are Abraham’s seed are all children, but “In Isaac a Seed shall be called to you.” Gen. 21:12
Rom 9:8 That is: Not the children of flesh are children of God, but the children of the promise are counted for a seed.

Counterfeit Garden of Eden

The Scriptures speak of when the Messiah returns and establishes His kingdom, the earth will be restored to its original state (Garden of Eden)

Isa 51:3  For YHWH comforts Zion. He comforts all her desolations, and He makes her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of YHWH; joy and gladness shall be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of singing praise.
Eze 36:33  So says the Lord YHWH: In the day I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built.
Eze 36:34  And the desolated land shall be cultivated, rather than being a ruin in the eyes of all passing by.
Eze 36:35  And they shall say, This land that was desolated has become like the garden of Eden. And the wasted and desolated and razed cities are fortified and inhabited.
Eze 36:36  And the nations left all around you shall know that I, YHWH, built the razed places and planted that which was desolated. I, YHWH have spoken it and will do it.

The adversary will counterfeit this paradise state.  When the day of YHWH comes, it comes upon a time of a counterfeit Eden (paradise).

Joe 2:1  Blow a ram’s horn in Zion, and shout an alarm in My holy mountain. Let all those living in the land tremble. For the day of YHWH approaches; it is near,
Joe 2:2  a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, as the dawn spread out on the mountains, a great and a strong people. There has never been the like, nor shall there ever be again to the years of many generations;
Joe 2:3  a fire devours before it, and a flame burns behind it. The land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them is a desolate wilderness; yea, also there is no escape to them.

Sodom and Gomorrah likened to the Garden of Eden

Gen 13:10  And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw all the circuit of Jordan, that it was well-watered before YHWH destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even like the garden of YHWH, like the land of Egypt as you come to Zoar.

What is the land of Israel called in the end times?
Rev 11:8  And their bodies will be on the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom, and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified.

Gen 13:10 also likens this false Eden to Egypt. This is where Yisrael was in bondage and slavery before deliverance. So too in the end there will be slavery and bondage as the prophets speak of the Exodus in the end being likened to the Egyptian exodus (Micah 7:15; Jeremiah 16:14-21).
After the counterfeit dividing of the land, the fallen angels and false Israel will enslave the ‘goyim’ as a counterfeit fulfillment of the Kingdom of Heaven where Yahshua rules as King and His kings and priests rule the earth with a rod of iron (Revelation 2:26-27; 12:5; Daniel 2:44) .

Heavenly Jerusalem vs. Earthly Jerusalem

In his letter to Galatians, Paul compares earthly Jerusalem with Heavenly Jerusalem.  There are numerous links to the current study in Galatians 4.

Gal 4:1  But I say, Over so long a time the heir is an infant, he being lord of all, does not differ from a slave,
Gal 4:2  but is under guardians and housemasters {The Aramaic of this word hints to the religious authority of that time  ‘Rabai batay’  ܒܬ ܪܒ also used in 1Corinthians 4:1; Luke 12:42} until the term set before by the father.
Gal 4:3  So we also, when we were infants, we were under the elements of the world {Colossians 2:8}, being enslaved {compare Ezekiel 16:1-15; Deuteronomy 24:18; Jeremiah 17:4; Lamentations 5:1-8; Hosea 4:6; Exodus 20:23-25}.
Gal 4:4  But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, having come into being out of a woman, having come under Law,
Gal 4:5  that He might redeem the ones under Law, that we might receive the adoption of sons {This is links to Romans 8 and the adoption as sons of Elohim, no longer under the slavery of sinful flesh).
Gal 4:6  And because you are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba! Father!
Gal 4:7  So that you no more are a slave, but a son, and if a son, also an heir of God through Christ.
Gal 4:8  But then, indeed, not knowing God, you served as slaves to the ones by nature not being gods {Before Messiah man was under the influence of the Mystery religions…ie Babylon, the origin of which came forth from the Sons of God spoken of in Genesis 6}.
Gal 4:9  But now, knowing God, but rather being known by God, how do you turn again to the weak and poor elements to which you desire again to slave anew?
Gal 4:10  You observe days and months and seasons and years {This is referring to the holidays of the beast which will be discussed in more detail below}.
Gal 4:11  I fear for you, lest somehow I have labored among you in vain.

Jerusalem above vs. Jerusalem below.

Gal 4:22  For it has been written, Abraham had two sons, one out of the slave woman and one out of the free woman.
Gal 4:23  But, indeed, he of the slave woman has been born according to flesh, and he out of the free woman through the promise,
Gal 4:24  which things are being allegorized, for these are two covenants, one, indeed, from Mount Sinai bringing forth to slavery (which is Hagar,
Gal 4:25  for Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, and she slaves with her children),
Gal 4:26  but the Jerusalem from above is free, who is the mother of us all;
Gal 4:27  for it has been written, “Be glad, barren one not bearing; break forth and shout, the one not travailing; for more are the children of the desolate rather than she having the husband.” Isa. 54:1
Gal 4:28  But, brothers, we are children of promise according to Isaac.
Gal 4:29  But then, even as he born according to flesh persecuted the one according to Spirit, so it is also now.
Gal 4:30  But what says the Scripture? “Cast out the slave woman and her son, for in no way shall the son of the slave woman inherit with the son of the free woman.” Gen. 21:10
Gal 4:31  Then, brothers, we are not children of a slave woman but of the free woman.

The Promise is His Word, the GospelClick Here.  The aim of which is man returning to the Most High through Messiah Yahshua.  A perfect bride that partakes of His Divine Nature.
2Pe 1:4  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature.

G5449 φύσις phusis
foo’-sis
From G5453; growth (by germination or expansion), that is, (by implication) natural production (lineal descent); by extension a genus or sort; figuratively native disposition, constitution or usage: – ([man-]) kind, nature ([-al]).

What is the counterfeit?  A false Olive Tree, a false grafting in process, a false Zion…partaking of the ‘divine nature’ of the adversary, the original ‘beast’ of Scripture (Genesis 3:1).

Gal 6:15  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
Gal 6:16  And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

2Co 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

The Land & inheritance is linked to being marked.

Believers in Messiah are the CHOSEN PEOPLE who are MARKED with the MARK OF YHWH, they will receive the INHERITANCE. The counterfeit is the false chosen people, the mark of the beast, the false inheritance.
Lamsa Aramaic translation
Eph 1:4 Just as from the beginning he has chosen us through him, before the foundation of the world, that we may become holy and without blemish before him.
Eph 1:5 And he marked us with his love to be his from the beginning, and adopted us to be sons through Jesus Christ, as it pleased his will.
Eph 1:11 in whom we also have been chosen to an inheritance, being marked according to the purpose of the One working all things according to the counsel of His own will,
Chosen is translated from the following Greek word:
G2820
κληρόω
klēroō
Thayer Definition:
1) to cast lots, determine by lot
2) to choose by lot
3) to allot, assign by lot
3a) on to another as a possession
4) in NT: to make a lot, i.e. a heritage, private possession
Part of Speech: verb
A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from G2819

This division of land and the inheritance received is associated with being marked:

Psa 87:5 And it shall be said to Zion, This man and that man was born in her; and the Highest Himself shall establish her.

Psa 87:6 In recording the peoples YHWH shall mark down, This man was born there. Selah.

Marked and Chosen
Rom 8:23  And not only they, but ourselves also, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, that is, the redemption of our bodies.
Rom 8:24  For we live in hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for if we see it, why should we yet hope?
Rom 8:25  But if we hope for that which we do not see, then do we wait for it in patience.
Rom 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helps our weaknesses: for we do not know what is right and proper for us to pray for: but the Spirit prays for us with that earnestness which cannot be described.
Rom 8:27  And he who searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, for the Spirit prays for the saints according to the will of God.
Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Rom 8:29  He knew them in advance and he marked them with the likeness of the image of his Son that he might be the first-born among many brethren.
Rom 8:30  Moreover, those he did mark in advance, he has called, and those he has called, he has declared righteous, and those he has declared righteous, he has glorified

The adversary seeks to counterfeit Isaiah 14:2 where Israel rules and reigns with Messiah.

Isa 14:2 And the peoples shall take them and bring them to their own place. And the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of YHWH for slaves and slave girls. And they shall be captives of their captors; and they shall rule over their oppressors.
Who is the oppressor of true Israel in the end?  The Assyrian.

Isa 14:24 YHWH of Hosts has sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so it shall be; and as I have purposed, it shall rise up;
Isa 14:25 to break Assyria in My land, and trample him on My mountains. Then his yoke shall depart from them, and his burden shall depart from his shoulders.
Isa 14:26 This is the purpose that is purposed on all the earth; and this the hand that is stretched out on all the nations.

Who was the ‘god’ of the Assyrians?

Kiyyun

Strong’s #3594 – Kiyuwn {kee-yoon’} from 3559; n pr dei AV – Chiun 1; 1 Chiun = “an image” or “pillar” 1) probably a statue of the Assyrian-Babylonian god of the planet Saturn and used to symbolise Israelite apostasy

“Chiun is sometimes called Kaiwan, or spelled Khiun, and means star. The star of Saturn was a god… Sakkuth and Kaiwan or Chiun are objects of idolatrous worship and are Assyrian gods. In Akkadian texts both names mean the planet or star, Saturn.” (O.J. Graham, The Six-Pointed Star, pp. 28-29)

As seen in previous studies, the star of Saturnclick here is the hexagramclick here.  It is no surprise that the false state of Israel has this image on their flag.

False Eden, False Zion, False Jerusalem is equated with 666.

666 – Where heaven touches earth

http://ohr.edu/ask_db/ask_main.php/277/Q1/

“Mosad Hayesod” cites the Vilna Gaon’s commentary on the Zohar that “the number 666 contains hidden within it exalted and lofty messianic potential.”
We do know that the number six represents the physical world. The Torah describes the creation of the universe as a six part, six day, process. Our ancient sources describe the universe as emanating in six directions — north, south, east, west, up, down — from a central point. All physical space and all physical objects have these six dimensions.

666 is six repeated three times. Repeating a concept three times represents the affirmation and strength of that concept. The number 666 could thus represent the strength and perfection of the physical world, which Judaism teaches will occur in the messianic era, when the physical world will reach its ultimate purpose, to be a vehicle through which the created experience the Creator.”

The Land is a bride

Isa 62:1  For Zion’s sake, I will not be silent; and for Jerusalem’s sake, I will not rest; until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning lamp.
Isa 62:2  And nations shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory. And you shall be called by a new name which the mouth of YHWH  shall specify.
Isa 62:3  You also shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of YHWH, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
Isa 62:4  You no longer shall be called Forsaken; nor shall your land any longer be called Desolate. But you shall be called, My Delight is in Her; and your land, Married. For YHWH delights in you, and your land is married.

Isa 62:10  Pass! Pass through the gates; prepare the way of the people! Raise up! Raise up the highway; clear it from stones; lift up a banner over the peoples.
Isa 62:11  Behold, YHWH has made it to be heard to the end of the earth; Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold! Your salvation comes! Behold! His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.
Isa 62:12  And they shall call them, The Holy People, the Redeemed of YHWH. And to you it shall be called, Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.

The Land & the Garden

The Scriptures describe Jerusalem/Zion as His Holy Mountain.

Psa 48:1  A Song, A Psalm for the Sons of Korah. Great is YHWH, and exceedingly to be praised in the city of our God, His holy mountain.
Psa 48:2  Beautiful on high, the joy of all the earth, is Mount Zion, in the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
Psa 48:8  As we have heard, so we have seen in the city of YHWH of Hosts, in the city of our God. God establishes it forever. Selah.

Isa 11:9  They shall not do evil, nor destroy in all My holy mountain. For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of YHWH, as the waters cover the sea.
Isa 27:13  And it shall be in that day, the great ram’s horn shall be blown; and those perishing in the land of Assyria and the outcasts in the land of Egypt shall come and shall worship YHWH in the holy mountain in Jerusalem.
Isa 57:13  When you cry, let your assembly deliver you; but the wind shall bear away all of them; vanity takes them. But he who takes refuge in Me shall inherit the land and possess My holy mountain.

Isa 66:20  And they shall bring all your brothers out of all nations, an offering to YHWH, on horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and on mules, and on camels, to My holy mountain Jerusalem, says YHWH; as the sons of Israel bring the offering in a clean vessel to the house of YHWH.
Jer 31:23  So says YHWH of Hosts, the God of Israel: Again they will speak this Word in the land of Judah, and in its cities, when I turn again their captivity, saying, YHWH bless you, O home of righteousness, O holy mountain!
Eze 20:40  For in My holy mountain in the mountain height of Israel, declares the Lord YHWH, all the house of Israel shall serve Me there, all of them in the land. There I will accept them, and there I will seek your heave offerings and the firstfruits of your offerings, with all your holy things.
Dan 9:16  O Lord, I pray to You, according to all Your righteousness, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain. For because of our sins and of our fathers’ iniquities, Jerusalem and Your people have become a reproach to all those around us.
Dan 9:20  And while I was speaking and praying and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and making my cry fall before YHWH my God for the holy mountain of my God,
Joe 2:1  Blow a ram’s horn in Zion, and shout an alarm in My holy mountain. Let all those living in the land tremble. For the day of YHWH approaches; it is near,
Joe 3:17  And you shall know that I am YHWH your God dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain. And Jerusalem shall be a holy thing, and aliens shall no more pass through her.
Zep 3:11  In that day you shall not be ashamed from all your doings in which you have transgressed against Me. For then I will take away those who rejoice in your pride out of your midst, and you shall not again be proud any more in My holy mountain.
Zec 8:3  So says YHWH: I have returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And Jerusalem shall be called a City of Truth, and the mountain of YHWH of Hosts, the Holy Mountain.
2Pe 1:17  For receiving honor and glory from God the Father such a voice being borne to Him from the magnificent glory, “This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I have been delighted,” Psa. 2:7; Gen. 22:2; Isa. 42:1; Matt. 17:5
2Pe 1:18  even we heard this voice being borne out of Heaven, being with Him in the holy mountain,

The Holy Mountain is Eden

Eze 28:13  You have been in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering; the ruby, the topaz, and the jasper, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the carbuncle, and gold; the workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes in you. In the day you were created, they were prepared.
Eze 28:14  You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy heights (Heb. har – mountain) of God, where you were. You walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

This is where the adversary seeks to reign.

Isa 14:13  For you have said In your heart, I will go up to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit in the mount of meeting, in the sides of the north.
Isa 14:14  I will rise over the heights of the clouds; I will be compared to the Most High.

In the book of Enoch, Enoch is taken to the Garden of Eden where there are seven mountains like unto the Menorah with the middle mountain being the Throne of Elohim.

Enoch 17:6-8
I saw at the end of the earth the firmament of the heaven above. And I proceeded and saw a place which burns day and night, where there are seven mountains of magnificent stones, three towards the east, and three towards the south. 7. And as for those towards the east, onewas of coloured stone, and one of pearl, and one of jacinth, and those towards the south of red stone. 8. But the middle one reached to heaven like the throne of God, of alabaster, and the summit of the throne was of sapphire.

Enoch 24:1. ⌈⌈And from thence I went to another place of the earth⌉⌉, and he showed me a mountain range of fire which burnt ⌈⌈day and night⌉⌉. 2. And I went beyond it and saw seven magnificent mountains all differing each from the other, and the stones (thereof) were magnificent and beautiful, magnificent as a whole, of glorious appearance and fair exterior: ⌈⌈three towards⌉⌉ the east, ⌈⌈one⌉⌉ founded on the other, and three towards the south, one upon the other, and deep rough ravines, no one of which joined with any other. 3. And the seventh mountain was in the midst of these, and it excelled them in height, resembling the seat of a throne: and fragrant trees encircled the throne. 4. And amongst them was a tree such as I had never yet smelt, neither was any amongst them nor were others like it: it had a fragrance beyond all fragrance, and its leaves and blooms and wood wither not for ever: and its fruit ⌈⌈is beautiful, and its fruit⌉⌉ resembles the dates of a palm. 5. Then I said: ‘⌈How⌉ beautiful is this tree, and fragrant, and its leaves are fair, and its blooms ⌈⌈very⌉⌉ delightful in appearance.’ 6. Then answered Michael, one of the holy ⌈⌈and honoured⌉⌉ angels who was with me, and was their leader.

Enoch 25:1. And he said unto me: ‘Enoch, why dost
thou ask me regarding the fragrance of the tree, and ⌈why⌉ dost thou wish to learn the truth?’ Then I answered him ⌈⌈saying⌉⌉: ‘I wish to know about everything, but especially about this tree.’ And he answered saying: ‘This high mountain ⌈⌈which thou hast seen⌉⌉, whose summit is like the throne of God, is His throne, where the Holy Great One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit, when He shall come down to visit the earth with goodness. 4. And as for this fragrant tree no mortal is permitted to touch it till the great judgement, when He shall take vengeance on all and bring (everything) to its consummation for ever. It shall then be given to the righteous and holy. 5. Its fruit shall be for food to the elect: it shall be transplanted to the holy place, to the temple of the Lord, the Eternal King.
6 Then shall they rejoice with joy and be glad,
And into the holy place shall they enter;
And its fragrance shall be in their bones,
And they shall live a long life on earth,
Such as thy fathers lived:
And in their days shall no ⌈⌈sorrow or⌉⌉ plague
Or torment or calamity touch them.’
7 Then blessed I the God of Glory, the Eternal King, who hath prepared such things for the righteous, and hath created them and promised to give to them.

Interestingly, Enoch describes the Holy Mountain of Elohim in the same terms as Ezekiel.  The adversary will attempt to counterfeit this holy mountain (Isa 14; Rev 17:9)
Rev 17:9  Here is the mind having wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains, where the woman sits on them.

The restoration of Eden, the coming Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a wedding.

Isa 62:1  For Zion’s sake, I will not be silent; and for Jerusalem’s sake, I will not rest; until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning lamp.
Isa 62:2  And nations shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory. And you shall be called by a new name which the mouth of YHWH shall specify.
Isa 62:3  You also shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of YHWH, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
Isa 62:4  You no longer shall be called Forsaken; nor shall your land any longer be called Desolate. But you shall be called, My Delight is in Her; and your land, Married. For YHWH delights in you, and your land is married.
Isa 62:5  For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you. And as a bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so your God shall rejoice over you.
Isa 62:6  I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem. All the day and all the night they shall not always be silent; you who remember YHWH, do not let a pause be to you.
Isa 62:7  And give no pause to Him until He sets up and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
Isa 62:8  YHWH has sworn by His right hand, and by the might of His arm: Surely I will no longer give your grain as food for your enemies; and the sons of a stranger shall not drink your new wine for which you have labored.
Isa 62:9  But those who have gathered it shall eat it, and praise YHWH. And they who have collected it shall drink it in My holy courts.
Isa 62:10  Pass! Pass through the gates; prepare the way of the people! Raise up! Raise up the highway; clear it from stones; lift up a banner over the peoples.
Isa 62:11  Behold, YHWH has made it to be heard to the end of the earth; Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold! Your salvation comes! Behold! His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.
Isa 62:12  And they shall call them, The Holy People, the Redeemed of YHWH. And to you it shall be called, Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.

Rev 21:9  And one of the seven angels came to me, he having the seven bowls being filled with the seven last plagues, and spoke with me, saying, Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
Rev 21:10  And he carried me in spirit onto a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God,

Counterfeit Eden

The People, the Land, & the Covenant will be counterfeited by the adversary.  A false chosen people, a false Zion, a false covenant.

For a time while Israel was in rebellion and following Baal and Asherah, the pentagram was the seal of Jerusalem.

This will be replayed in the end when the adversary seeks to set up a false Garden of Eden and sit on the sides of the north (Isaiah 14:13; Psalm 48:2).  This is why the book of Revelation refers to Jerusalem as Sodom & Egypt at that time.

Rev 11:8  And their bodies will be on the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom, and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified.

Jerusalem’s latitude and longitude at the exact center of the city totals 666.  N 31:47 and E 35:13 = 3147 + 3513 = 6660 = 666.

Counterfeit bride

The Regathering of Israel is spoken of in Deuteronomy 30:

Deu 30:4  If you are cast out to the end of the heavens, YHWH your God shall gather you from there, and He shall take you from there.
Deu 30:5  And YHWH your God shall bring you into the land which your fathers have possessed, and you shall inherit it; and He shall do you good and multiply you above your fathers.
In verse 4 above, the word for take is ‘laqach.’  This word is also translated as ‘marry’ in the Scriptures (Genesis 19:14; Numbers 12:2; 1 Chronicles 2:21).

Counterfeit Eden

Gen 6:2  The sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were good, and they took (laqach) wives for themselves from all those whom they chose (bachar).  A false ‘chosen’ peopleclick here.  Interesting, ‘laqach’ is also translated as ‘mingled’ in Exodus 9:24 linking to the beast kingdom of the end where the fallen angels mingle with the seed of men (Daniel 2:43).

The Scriptures speak of when the Messiah returns and establishes His kingdom, the earth will be restored to its original state (Garden of Eden)

Isa 51:3  For YHWH comforts Zion. He comforts all her desolations, and He makes her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of YHWH; joy and gladness shall be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of singing praise.
Eze 36:33  So says the Lord YHWH: In the day I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built.
Eze 36:34  And the desolated land shall be cultivated, rather than being a ruin in the eyes of all passing by.
Eze 36:35  And they shall say,
This land that was desolated has become like the garden of Eden. And the wasted and desolated and razed cities are fortified and inhabited.
Eze 36:36  And the nations left all around you shall know that I, YHWH, built the razed places and planted that which was desolated. I, YHWH have spoken it and will do it.

The adversary will counterfeit this paradise state.  When the day of YHWH comes, it comes upon a time of a counterfeit Eden (paradise).

Joe 2:1  Blow a ram’s horn in Zion, and shout an alarm in My holy mountain. Let all those living in the land tremble. For the day of YHWH approaches; it is near,
Joe 2:2  a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, as the dawn spread out on the mountains, a great and a strong people. There has never been the like, nor shall there ever be again to the years of many generations;
Joe 2:3  a fire devours before it, and a flame burns behind it.
The land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them is a desolate wilderness; yea, also there is no escape to them.

Sodom and Gomorrah likened to the Garden of Eden

Gen 13:10  And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw all the circuit of Jordan, that it was well-watered before YHWH destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even like the garden of YHWH, like the land of Egypt as you come to Zoar.

What is the land of Israel called in the end times?
Rev 11:8  And their bodies will be on the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom, and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified.

Gen 13:10 also likens this false Eden to Egypt. This is where Yisrael was in bondage and slavery before deliverance. So too in the end there will be slavery and bondage as the prophets speak of the Exodus in the end being likened to the Egyptian exodus (Micah 7:15; Jeremiah 16:14-21).
After the counterfeit dividing of the land, the fallen angels and false Israel will enslave the ‘goyim’ as a counterfeit fulfillment of the Kingdom of Heaven where Yahshua rules as King and His kings and priests rule the earth with a rod of iron (Revelation 2:26-27; 12:5; Daniel 2:44) .
Joe 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

Notice that the dividing of the land is linked to slavery
Joe 3:3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
Isa 14:2 And the peoples shall take them and bring them to their own place. And the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of YHWH for slaves and slave girls. And they shall be captives of their captors; and they shall rule over their oppressors.
Isa 14:24 YHWH of Hosts has sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so it shall be; and as I have purposed, it shall rise up;
Isa 14:25 to break Assyria {code for antichrist…more on this below} in My land, and trample him on My mountains. Then his yoke shall depart from them, and his burden shall depart from his shoulders.
Isa 14:26 This is the purpose that is purposed on all the earth; and this the hand that is stretched out on all the nations.

“When the Messiah comes, all will be slaves of the Jews”. (Talmud, Erubin 43b)

This is a counterfeit of what the Angels of YHWH will do when Messiah returns:

Mat 13:39  The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Mat 13:40  As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
Mat 13:41  The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Mat 13:49  So it will be in the completion of the age: the angels will go out and will separate the evil from the midst of the righteous,
Mat 13:50  and will throw them into the furnace of fire; there will be weeping and gnashing of the teeth.

The word separate in verse 49 is from the following Greek word which describes marking off boundaries, ie dividing the land:

Isaiah also alludes to this dividing of the land by the fallen angels:

Isa 13:5 They come from a distant land, from the end of the heavens, YHWH  and the weapons of His wrath, to destroy all the land.

The word ‘destroy’ above is from the Hebrew word ‘chabal’ which literally means a rope that binds.  This is linked to slavery as well as divisions of the land as chabal is also translated as ‘portion, region, country.’  It means a ‘region, bound with borders.’

As it was in the days of Noah…
Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noah, so also will be the coming of the Son of Man.

In ancient writings of the Sumerians they speak of the “gods” dividing the land.

Atrahasis Tablet 1
…”They (“gods”) took the box (of lots)…, Cast the lots; the gods made the division”
Footnote “Land was divided for inheritance among sons in ancient Mesopotamia by casting lots.  Burkert 1983, 53 pointed out similarities with Iliad, XV. 187-193, Poseidon’s speech to Iris telling how the earth was originally divided by lots into three domains.

Plato in  Critias also supports this concept, that a group of divine beings in ancient times, “gods of the nations”, had divided up rule over the earth amongst themselves, a rule that continues today:
In the days of old the gods had the whole earth distributed among them by allotment. There was no quarrelling; for you cannot rightly suppose that the gods did not know what was proper for each of them to have, or, knowing this, that they would seek to procure for themselves by contention that which more properly belonged to others. They all of them by just apportionment obtained what they wanted, and peopled their own districts; and when they had peopled them they tended us, their nurselings and possessions, as shepherds tend their flocks, excepting only that they did not use blows or bodily force, as shepherds do, but governed us like pilots from the stern of the vessel, which is an easy way of guiding animals, holding our souls by the rudder of persuasion according to their own pleasure;-thus did they guide all mortal creatures.

Interestingly, the stories of Atlantisclick here portray this “paradise” being ruled by 10 kings.

Rev 12:3  And another sign was seen in the heavens. And, behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns! And on his heads were seven diadems,

Rev 13:1  And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten diadems, and on its heads names of blasphemy.

7 heads and 10 horns links to the nations of Canaan as well.

Deu 7:1  When YHWH your God shall bring you into the land to which you are going, to possess it, and He casts out many nations from before you, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations larger and mightier than you;

Gen 15:18  On that day YHWH made a covenant with Abram, saying, I have given this land to your seed, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates,
Gen 15:19  the Kenite (1), and the Kenizzite (2), and the Kadmonite (3),
Gen 15:20  and the Hittite (4), and the Perizzite (5), and the giants (6),
Gen 15:21  and the Amorite (7) and the Canaanite (8), and the Girgashite (9), and the Jebusite (10).

In the DSS Community Rule 1QS 11:5 we read of an interesting comment about the lot of the Holy Ones. It speaks of the “Master” of the assembly who has hidden knowledge that comes from Elohim, who has caused His chosen ones to inherit the lot of the Holy Ones. He has joined their assembly to the Sons of Heaven to be a Council of the Community, a foundation of the Building of Holiness, and eternal Plantation throughout all ages to come.

This is interesting to note as it is seen in part 10click here that the faith of the Essenes was not that of the Most High, but a mixture of the mystery religions and the Scriptures.  Those who claim to be of the ‘holy blood’ of the Messiah also associate themselves with the Essenes.

The division of the land is linked to being marked.

Believers in Messiah are the CHOSEN PEOPLE who are MARKED with the MARK OF YHWH, they will receive the INHERITANCE. The counterfeit is the false chosen people, the mark of the beast, the false inheritance.
Lamsa Aramaic translation
Eph 1:4 Just as from the beginning he has chosen us through him, before the foundation of the world, that we may become holy and without blemish before him.
Eph 1:5 And he marked us with his love to be his from the beginning, and adopted us to be sons through Jesus Christ, as it pleased his will.

The Wedding

The wedding supper of the Lamb is the culmination of the plan of the Most High.

Rev 19:7  Let us rejoice and let us exult, and we will give glory to Him, because the marriage of the Lamb came, and His wife prepared herself.
Rev 19:8  And it was given to her that she be clothed in fine linen, pure and bright; for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints.
Rev 19:9  And he says to me, Write: Blessed are the ones having been called to the supper of the marriage of the Lamb. And he says to me, These Words of God are true.

This wedding was foreshadowed in the Garden.

Eph 5:22  Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord,
Eph 5:23  because a husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is Head of the assembly, and He is the Savior of the body. {This is interesting to note as Paul warns the Corinthians that a woman is to make sure her head is covered because of the angels (1 Corinthians 11:10)…The wedding of the beast and his bride occurs due to the woman (mankind) not being subject to her husband (YHWH) as it was foreshadowed in the garden in the actions of Eve}
Eph 5:24  But even as the assembly is subject to Christ, so also the wives to their own husbands in everything.
Eph 5:25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly and gave Himself up on its behalf,
Eph 5:26  that He might sanctify it, cleansing it by the washing of the water in the Word,
Eph 5:27  that He might present it to Himself as the glorious assembly, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such things, but that it be holy and without blemish.
Eph 5:28  So, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies, (he loving his wife loves himself),
Eph 5:29  for then no one hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as also the Lord the assembly.
Eph 5:30  For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
Eph 5:31  “For this, a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh.” Gen. 2:24
Eph 5:32  The mystery is great, but I speak as to Christ and as to the assembly.

The Kingdom is likened to a wedding supper.

Mat 22:1  And answering, Jesus again spoke to them in parables, saying:
Mat 22:2  The kingdom of Heaven is compared to a man, a king, who made a wedding feast for his son.
Mat 22:3  And he sent his slaves to call those being invited to the wedding feast, but they did not desire to come.
Mat 22:4  Again, he sent other slaves, saying, Tell the ones invited, Behold, I have prepared my supper; my oxen, and the fatlings are killed, and all things ready; come to the wedding feast.
Mat 22:5  But not caring they went away, one to his own field, and one to his trading.
Mat 22:6  And the rest, seizing his slaves, insulted and killed them.
Mat 22:7  And hearing, the king became angry. And sending his armies, he destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
Mat 22:8  Then he said to his slaves, Indeed, the wedding feast is ready, but those invited were not worthy.
Mat 22:9  Then go onto the exits of the highways and call to the wedding feast as many as you may find.
Mat 22:10  And going out into the highways, those slaves gathered all, as many as they found, both evil and good. And the wedding feast was filled with reclining guests.
Mat 22:11  And the king coming in to look over those reclining, he saw a man there not having been dressed in a wedding garment.
Mat 22:12  And he said to him, Friend, how did you come in here, not having a wedding garment? But he was speechless.
Mat 22:13  Then the king said to the servants, Binding his feet and hands, take him away and throw him out into the outer darkness. There shall be weeping and gnashing of the teeth.
Mat 22:14  For many are called, but few chosen.

Messiah came to deliver mankind from the kingdom of darkness, to call out a priesthood/bride.

Isa 61:1  The Spirit of the Lord YHWH is on Me, because YHWH has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the meek. He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to captives, and complete opening to the bound ones;
Isa 61:2  to proclaim the acceptable year of YHWH, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;
Isa 61:3  to appoint to those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of the spirit of infirmity, so that one calls them trees of righteousness, the planting of YHWH, in order to beautify Himself.
Isa 61:4  And they shall build old ruins; they shall raise up former desolations; and they shall restore the waste cities, ruins of generations and generations.
Isa 61:5  And foreigners shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of strangers shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
Isa 61:6  But you shall be called, Priests of YHWH; it will be said of you, Ministers of our God. You shall eat the wealth of the nations, and you shall revel in their glory.
Isa 61:7  Instead of your shame and disgrace, double. They rejoice in their portion; for they shall possess a second time in their land; everlasting joy shall be theirs.
Isa 61:8  For I, YHWH, love judgment, hating plunder in burnt offering. And I will give their work in truth; and I will cut an everlasting covenant for them.
Isa 61:9  And their seed shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed that YHWH has blessed.
Isa 61:10  Rejoicing I will rejoice in YHWH. My soul shall be joyful in my God. For He clothed me with garments of salvation; He put on me the robe of righteousness, even as a bridegroom dons as a priest his head-dress, and as a bride wears her ornaments. {This joy is linked to the Kingdom & the Wedding of the LambClick Here}
Isa 61:11  For as the earth comes out with her buds, and as a garden causes that which is sown to grow, so the Lord YHWH will make righteousness and praise to grow before all the nations.

The 144,000 spoken of in Revelation 7 connect the mark of YHWH to the priesthood.  The mark of the beast is a counterfeit…linked to a counterfeit priesthood.

Rev 14:1  And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion! And with Him were a hundred and forty four thousands, with the name of His Father having been written on their foreheads.
Rev 22:4  And they will see His face; and His name will be on their foreheads.

This is links to the priesthood

Exo 28:36  And you shall make a plate of pure gold. And you shall engrave on it the engravings of a signet: HOLINESS TO YHWH.
Exo 28:37  And you shall put a ribbon of blue on it, and it shall be on the miter, to the front of the miter it shall be.
Exo 28:38  And it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, and Aaron shall bear the iniquity of the holy things which will sanctify the sons of Israel to all their holy gifts. And it shall be on his forehead continually, for acceptance for them before the face of YHWH.

We are marked by the Name/Torah/Yahshua
Rev 7:3  Do not harm the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees, until we seal the slaves of our God on their foreheads.
Rev 7:4  And I heard the number of those having been sealed: one hundred forty four thousands, having been sealed out of every tribe of the sons of Israel:
Rev 14:1  And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion! And with Him were a hundred and forty four thousands, with the name of His Father having been written on their foreheads.
Rev 14:2  And I heard a sound out of Heaven, as a sound of many waters, and as a sound of great thunder. Also I heard a sound of harpers harping on their harps.
Rev 14:3  And they sing as a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders. And no one was able to learn the song except the hundred and forty four thousands, those having been redeemed from the earth.
Rev 14:4  These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones following the Lamb wherever He may go. These were redeemed from among men as a firstfruit to God and to the Lamb.
Rev 14:5  And no guile was found in their mouth, for they are without blemish before the throne of God.

Exodus 8:23 Distinction=redemption=sign=ephod=mark of YHWH
Exo 8:23  And I will put redemption (KJV distinction) between My people and your people. This miracle shall be for tomorrow.

Brought back to an original state.  A sinless state.  Like the Last Adam.

1Jn 3:1  See what manner of love the Father has given us, that we may be called children of God. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
1Jn 3:2  Beloved, now we are the children of God, and it was not yet revealed what we shall be. But we know that if He is revealed, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.

We shall be in His image.  The seed of the serpent will be in his image.  This is what the mark of the beast is.  The Sons of Elohim (Romans 8) will be clothed in the garments of righteousness and salvation (Yeshua).  The seed of the serpent will be clothed in the garments of the serpent.

Ephod comes from the same root as redeem/distinction above.

The 144,00 are the firstborn, the priests…redeemed from the earth.
The “distinction” is seen in the end
Mal 3:16  Then those fearing YHWH spoke together, each man to his neighbor. And YHWH gave attention and heard. And a Book of Remembrance was written before Him for those who feared YHWH, and for those esteeming His name.
Mal 3:17  And they shall be Mine, says YHWH of Hosts, for the day that I will make up My treasure. And I will pity them as a man has pity on his son who serves him.
Mal 3:18  Then you shall again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who does not serve Him.

The mark of the beast was foreshadowed during the days of the Maccabees and was linked with worship at the Temple/sanctuaries.

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.”

Vincent Word Studies
Rev 13:16
A mark (χάραγμα)
The word occurs frequently in Revelation, and only once elsewhere (Act_17:29) on which see note. Commentators find illustrations in the brand set upon slaves by their masters, or upon soldiers by their monarchs, and in the branding of slaves attached to certain temples. Herodotus describes a temple to Hercules at the Canopic mouth of the Nile, and says: “If a slave runs away from his master, and taking sanctuary at this shrine gives himself up to the God, and receives certain sacred marks upon his person, whosoever his master may be, he cannot lay hand on him” (ii., 113). In the treatise “concerning the Syrian goddess” falsely attributed to Lucian, it is said of the slaves of the temple, “all are branded, some upon the wrist and some upon the neck.” Paul, in Gal_6:17, applies the word for these brands, στίγματα, to the marks of Christ’s service which he bears in his body. In 3 Macc. 2:29, we read that Ptolemy Philopator required all the Jews of Alexandria to be registered among the common people; and that those who were thus registered were to be marked (χαράσεσθαι) on their persons by the ivy-leaf symbol of Dionysus (Bacchus).

We must choose the garments of righteousness and salvation that are only found in Messiah Yahshua (Jeremiah 23:6; Isaiah 45:22-25; Isaiah 61:10; Romans 13:14 {2}) or we can choose to have our own righteousness that is nothing but filthy rags.

Isa 64:6  But we are all as the unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as a menstruation cloth. And we all fade as a leaf, and like the wind our iniquities take us away.

Notice that the Holy Spirit links our attempts at righteousness to a leaf that fades away.  This traces back to the Garden.  When Adam and Eve partook of the tree of knowledge they tried to cover themselves with a fig leaf (Genesis 3:7).  This represents self righteousness.  YHWH however, covers then with animals skins which represent the righteousness of Yahshua, the garments of salvation.

Wedding garments, resurrected into the Image of Messiah.

Isa 61:10  I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Psa 132:16  I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
Rom 13:14  But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Kingdom of priests.

Exo 19:5  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
Exo 19:6  And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
1Pe 2:9  But you are “an elect* race**,” “a royal priesthood,” “a holy nation,” “a people for possession,” so that “you may openly speak of the virtues” of the One who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

The word translated into English in 1 Peter 2:9 as elect or chosen is a Greek word which when broken down to its root means “by or from the Word.”  Eklektos is a combination of ek, meaning out of or from and lego meaning the word.  This is the meaning of being born again.  Born again from above from the Seed of the Word.  This is true Zionclick here.

Being covered in the garments of salvation (Yeshua) is the mark of YHWH.

Rom 1:1  Paul, a slave of Jesus Christ, a called apostle, separated to the gospel of God,
Rom 1:2  which He promised before through His prophets in the holy Scriptures,
Rom 1:3  concerning His Son who came of the seed of David according to flesh,
Rom 1:4  who was marked out the Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord;

The meaning of this word corresponds to the Hebrew word Tor.  It is only through the resurrection that we will be formed into His image.

1Jn 3:1  See what manner of love the Father has given us, that we may be called children of God. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
1Jn 3:2  Beloved, now we are the children of God, and it was not yet revealed what we shall be. But we know that if He is revealed, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.

Rev 1:5  even from Jesus Christ the Faithful Witness, the First-born out of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him loving us and washing us from our sins by His blood,
Rev 1:6  and made us kings and priests to God, even His Father. To Him is the glory and the might forever and ever. Amen.
Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is the one having part in the first resurrection. The second death has no authority over these, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him a thousand years.

So what is the counterfeit?  It is a false ‘resurrection’ or born again experience.  It is partaking of the tree of knowledge.  Those who put their faith in Messiah must die to the flesh to be reborn again in the Spirit through His power.  Those who partake of the tree of knowledge must go through degrees and graduations to reach ‘godhood’.  This is one of the meanings of the ‘Holy Grail’.  This false born again/resurrection concept is seen throughout the world and the various belief systems of mankind.  The Buddhists and Hindus have the reincarnation concept.  The Jews have the concept of ‘climbing the sephirotic ladder’ and reaching the status of Adam Kadmon (image of Elohim).  The esoteric teachings have initiation experiences.  Catholicism has sacraments.  They are all the filthy garments of man’s attempts at righteousness.  It is only YHWH’s righteousness, the garments of salvation that will save us.  We must be in the image of Messiah not the image of the beast.  We must partake of the tree of life, not the tree of knowledge.  Otherwise we will be among those who weep and gnash the teeth in outer darkness (Matthew 22:11).

From this root we get ta’ar and to’ar.  These words mean form, outline or border.  This is an important connection to see in that the mark of the beast versus the mark of YHWH ultimately reflects whose image/form you are in.

This connection between the mark and the image/form/outline/shadow picture of YHWH Yahshua versus the antichrist is further seen in that the word Torah comes from this same root.

We can have the mark of YHWH and be in His image by walking in His Torah and letting Messiah live through us (Galatians 2:20), or we can have the mark of the beast and be in the image of satan by walking in his torah which is lawlessness (Ephesians 2:2-3Isaiah 30:8-11; 1 Peter 2:8) .

We can choose the tree of life or the tree of knowledge.  The Light of the Word or the false light which is in reality darkness (Matthew 6:23).

The Gospel

The Hebrew word for gospel is ‘besorah’ which comes from the root ‘basar.’

Brown Driver Briggs Hebrew definition

H1319 בּשׂר bâśar
BDB Definition:
1) to bear news, bear tidings, publish, preach, show forth

BDB Definition:
1) flesh

It is clear to see the link in the above Hebrew word to the current study.  The Gospel is linked to the wedding supper of the Lamb and those who partake of that supper through faith in the Good News.

The first reference in the Scriptures to ‘basar’ is in the Garden speaking of Adam and Eve becoming ‘one flesh.’  Again the link to marriage as well as the marriage supper of the Lamb as Paul speaks of this union being a picture of Messiah and His bride (Ephesians 5:32).

Gen 2:21  And YHWH God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh underneath.
Gen 2:22  And YHWH God formed the rib which He had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man.
Gen 2:23  And the man said, This now at last is bone from my bones, and flesh from my flesh. For this shall be called Woman, because this has been taken out of man.
Gen 2:24  Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife and they shall become one flesh.

Yahshua & His bride

Eph 5:28  So, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies, (he loving his wife loves himself),
Eph 5:29  for then no one hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as also the Lord the assembly.
Eph 5:30  For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
Eph 5:31  “For this, a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh.” Gen. 2:24
Eph 5:32  The mystery is great, but I speak as to Christ and as to the assembly.

Isa 54:5  For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

The Creator is Yahshuaclick here

Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (Psalm 33:6; Hebrews 1:1-3, 8-12; 11:3; John 1:1-3; Ephesians 3:9)

Rom 7:4  So that, my brothers, you also were made dead to the Law through the body of Christ, for you to become Another’s, to the One raised from the dead, so that we may bear fruit to God.

Notice that Paul links being married to Messiah with bearing fruit.  This is because His bride is one with Him.  She abides in the vine, the Tree of Life…the Olive Tree.

Joh 15:1  I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.
Joh 15:2  Every branch in Me not bearing fruit, He takes it away; and each one bearing fruit, He prunes, so that it may bear more fruit.
Joh 15:3  You are already pruned because of the Word which I have spoken to you.
Joh 15:4  Remain in Me, and I in you. As the branch is not able to bear fruit of itself, unless it remain in the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me.
Joh 15:5  I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one abiding in Me, and I in him, this one bears much fruit, because apart from Me you are not able to execute, nothing.
Joh 15:6  Unless one remains in Me, he is cast out as the branch and is dried up; and they gather and throw them into a fire, and they are burned.
Joh 15:7  If you remain in Me, and My Words remain in you, whatever you desire you will ask, and it shall happen to you.
Joh 15:8  In this My Father is glorified, that you should bear much fruit; and you will be disciples to Me.
Joh 15:9  As the Father loved Me, I also loved you; continue in My love.
Joh 15:10  If you keep My commandments you will continue in My love, as I have kept My Father’s commandments and continue in His love.

Rev 22:14  Blessed are the ones doing His commands, that their authority will be over the Tree of Life, and by the gates they may enter into the city.

Pro 11:30  The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

The Menorah is a picture of the Tree of Life.  A picture of the body of Messiah.

Rev 1:20  The mystery of the seven stars which you saw on My right, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are angels of the seven assemblies, and the seven lampstands you saw are seven assemblies.

Mat 5:14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Mat 5:15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Mat 5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Phi 2:12  Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Phi 2:13  For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Phi 2:14  Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
Phi 2:15  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
2Co 4:3  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Co 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2Co 4:5  For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
2Co 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Isa 2:3  And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Zion is a people
Isa 51:15  But I am the LORD thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The LORD of hosts is his name.
Isa 51:16  And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.
We are the branches of the menorah
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.
BRANCHES=NETSARIM
Act 24:5  For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:
Jer 31:6  For there shall be a day, that the watchmen{H5341 נצר natsar  נצרים}upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.

The almonds of the Menorah are the the hebrew word shaqad which is the same Hebrew word for WATCH…notice the connection to the word Natsar which is translated as branches and watchmen
Exo 25:34  And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers.

Isa 11:1  And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch{H5342 נצר netser} shall grow out of his roots:
Isa 60:21  Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch{H5342 netser} of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.
Isa 49:6  And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved{H5341 natsar} of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
Mat 2:23  And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene. ß-Isa 11:1…Nazarene=Netser/Netserim/Natsarim/Branches

His disciples have the testimony of Messiah(Light) and keep His commandments/Torah(Light)

Isa 8:16  Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

Isa 8:20  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Rev 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Rev 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus

The 7 branches of the Menorah correspond to the 7 mountains of Jerusalem.

The seven mountains upon which Jerusalem sits are Mount Zion (Psalm 125:1), Mount Ophel (2 Chronicles 33:14), Mount Moriah (2 Chronicles 3:1), Mount Bezetha, Mount Acra, Mount Gareb (Jeremiah 31:39), and Mount Goath (Jeremiah 31:39)

These 7 mountains are a shadow picture of YHWH.

Psa 125:1  A Song of Ascents. They who trust in YHWH shall be like Mount Zion; it is not shaken; it remains forever.
Psa 125:2  The mountains are all around Jerusalem; and YHWH is all around His people, from this time and forever.

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;

YHWH surrounding His people is linked with His return and judgment on the beast

Zec 2:5 And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, and I will be for glory in her midst, declares YHWH.

Isa 31:4  For so YHWH has said to me: As the lion roars, even the young lion on his prey when the multitude of shepherds are gathered against him, he will not fear their voice, nor fret himself because of their noise. So YHWH of Hosts shall go down to fight on Mount Zion, and on its hill. {This is speaking of the Messiah 2nd coming- Zechariah 14:3}

Isa 31:5  As birds that fly (Matthew 23:37), so YHWH of Hosts will shield (Heb. ganan – garden) over Jerusalem; shielding (ganan) and delivering, and passing over (pesach), He will save it (Heb. malat – used in Isaiah 66:7 speaking of the delivering of the manchild/Zion).
Isa 31:6  Turn back to Him against whom you have made a deep revolt, sons of Israel.
Isa 31:7  For in that day each shall despise his silver idols and his golden idols, which your hands have made for you; a sin.
Isa 31:8  Then Assyria* shall fall by a sword, not of man; yea, a sword, not of man, shall devour him. For he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall become forced labor. (This refers to Isaiah chapter 14)  *Assyria is linked to the beastclick here
Isa 31:9  And his rock will pass away from fear; and his commanders shall tremble at the banner, declares YHWH, whose fire is in Zion, and His furnace in Jerusalem. {the Banner is Yahshua Exo 17:15; Isa 11:10; 49:22)

Covenant Bride

Gen 17:1  And when Abram was ninety nine years old, YHWH appeared to Abram and said to him, I am the Almighty God! Walk before me and be perfect*;

*The word here translated as perfect is from the Hebrew ‘tamiym’ which means complete, without blemish (Exodus 12:5).
Gen 17:2  and I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you very much.

Gen 17:3  And Abram fell on his face. And God spoke with him, saying,
Gen 17:4  As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations.
Gen 17:5  And your name no longer shall be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham. For I have made you a father of many nations.

Here it is seen that Abram’s name was changed to Abraham.  This links to marriage as a the bride has her name changed to her husband’s because she belongs to Him. (Isaiah 62:2; Revelation 2:17; 3:12)
Gen 17:6  And I will make you very fruitful, exceedingly. And I will give you for nations. And kings shall come out of you.
Gen 17:7  And I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and your seed after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be a God to you and to your seed after you.
Gen 17:8  And I will give to you and to your seed after you the land of your sojourning, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession and I will be their God.

Perfect bride

Eph 5:25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly and gave Himself up on its behalf,
Eph 5:26  that He might sanctify it, cleansing it by the washing of the water in the Word,
Eph 5:27  that He might present it to Himself as the glorious assembly, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such things, but that it be holy and without blemish {This is the definition of ‘tamiym’ (perfect)}.

Rev 19:7  Let us rejoice and let us exult, and we will give glory to Him, because the marriage of the Lamb came, and His wife prepared herself.
Rev 19:8  And it was given to her that she be clothed in fine linen, pure and bright; for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints.
Rev 19:9  And he says to me, Write: Blessed are the ones having been called to the supper of the marriage of the Lamb. And he says to me, These Words of God are true.

The perfect way

2Sa 22:31  As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
2Sa 22:32  For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
2Sa 22:33  God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.

Psa 18:32  It is God who girds me with strength and gives my way to be perfect;

Psa 119:1  ALEPH: Blessed are the upright (Heb. tamiym) in the way, who walk in the Law of YHWH.
Psa 119:2  Blessed are those keeping His Testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart.
Psa 119:3  They also do not work evil; they walk in His way.

This portion of Psalm 119 is connected to Psalm 1 which speaks of the 2 ways (good or evil) and the two trees of Eden.

Mat 19:21  Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

We are to walk with Messiah to perfection.  This was the message of the Apostles.

Rom 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Phi 3:14  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Phi 3:15  Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

Col 1:28  Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Eph 4:11  And indeed He gave some to be apostles; and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12  with a view to the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ,
Eph 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

Col 4:12  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete {G4137 pleroo fulfill(Mtt5:17)}in all the will of God.

Heb 6:1  Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

How do we escape the strong delusion of the end?  Just as Noah did.

Gen 6:9  These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Noah is a picture of the righteous who walk with Elohim and are perfected in the Image of Messiah.  The wicked during the days of Noah are a picture of those in the end who have their DNA manipulated with a counterfeit perfection.

Love the bond of perfection

Col 3:14  And above all these, love, which is the bond of perfectness.

Eph 1:4  Just as from the beginning he has chosen us through him, before the foundation of the world, that we may become holy and without blemish before him.
Eph 1:5  And he marked us with his love {His love is His Torahclick here…this is what the Mark of YHWH is*} to be his from the beginning, and adopted us to be sons through Jesus Christ, as it pleased his will.
Eph 1:11  in whom we also have been chosen to an inheritance, being predestinated (Aramaic mark) according to the purpose of the One working all things according to the counsel of His own will,

*The Shema, is the definition of love.

Mat 22:37  And Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Deut. 6:5
Mat 22:38  This is the first and great commandment.
Mat 22:39  And the second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Lev. 19:18
Mat 22:40  On these two commandments all the Law and the Prophets hang.

The shema comes from Deuteronomy 6 which is to be between the eyes and on the hand.

Deu 6:4  Hear, O Israel, YHWH our God is one YHWH.
Deu 6:5  And you shall love YHWH your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.
Deu 6:6  And these Words which I am commanding you today shall be on your heart.
Deu 6:7  And you shall teach them to your sons, and shall speak of them as you sit in your house, and as you walk in the way, and as you are lying down, and as you are rising up.
Deu 6:8  And you shall bind them for a sign on your hand; and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes.
Deu 6:9  And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house, and on your gates.

Sons of Elohim through Messiah.  Conformed to His Image.  His Covenant Bride (seed of Abraham – Genesis 17).

Rom 8:28  But we know that to the ones loving God all things work together for good, to those being called according to purpose;
Rom 8:29  because whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, for Him to be the First-born among many brothers.
Rom 8:30  But whom He predestinated, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

Rom 8:37  But in all these things we more than conquer through Him loving us.
Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39  nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

Gal 3:26  for you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:27  For as many as were baptized into Christ, you put on Christ.
Gal 3:28  There cannot be Jew nor Greek, there is no slave nor freeman, there is no male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:29  And if you are of Christ, then you are a seed of Abraham, even heirs according to promise.

The Elijah Message

Elijah is promised to come before the Day of YHWH.  This promise was spoken through the prophet Malachi.  At the beginning of Malachi 3, we read of the Angel of the Covenant who comes as a refiner’s fire and as fuller’s soap.  As seen above, refinement and purifying and done to perfect the bride.

Mal 3:1  Behold, I am sending My messenger, and He will clear the way before Me. And the Lord whom you are seeking shall suddenly come to His temple, even the Angel of the Covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He comes, says YHWH of Hosts.
Mal 3:2  But who can endure the day of His coming? And who will stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fuller’s soap.
Mal 3:3  And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and He shall purify the sons of Levi and purge them like gold and like silver, that they may be presenters of a grain offering in righteousness to YHWH.

Mal 4:4  Remember ye the law of Moses my servant*, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

*We are chastised through His Word (Psalm 94:12; Deuteronomy 8:5-6).
Mal 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

ELIJAH COMES TWICE, EACH TIME PRECEDING THE MESSIAH
Mat 17:10  And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the Scribes that Eliyah must first come?
Mat 17:11  And Yahshua answered, and said vnto them,
Eliyah truely shall first come, and restore all things:
Mat 17:12  But I say vnto you, that
Eliyah is come already, and they knew him not, but haue done vnto him whatsoeuer they listed: Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

In order to see what the message of Elijah is, we must look to the life and words of Elijah and John the Baptist.

Luk 1:16  And he will turn many of the sons of Israel to the Lord their God.
Luk 1:17  And he will go out before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah “to turn the hearts of fathers to their children,” and disobedient ones to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people having been prepared for the Lord. Mal. 4:5, 6

Before Messiah comes again, the spirit of Elijah will prepare His people yet again.

Rev 19:7  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

Rev 19:8  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
Eph 5:25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Eph 5:26  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27  That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
2Ti 3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

It is the Word that guides us to perfection.  This is why the Elijah message begins with ‘remember the Torah of Moses.’

Psa 19:7  The Law of YHWH is perfect, converting the soul. The Testimony of YHWH is sure, making the simple wise.

James makes the connection of the perfect implanted word which saves our souls. Yahshua is the Torah made flesh, implanted w/in us.
Jas 1:21  On account of this, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of evil, in meekness receive the implanted Word being able to save your souls.
Jas 1:22  But become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
Jas 1:23  Because if anyone is a hearer of the Word, and not a doer, this one is like a man studying his natural face in a mirror;
Jas 1:24  for he studied himself, and has gone away, and immediately he forgot of what kind he was.
Jas 1:25  But the one looking into the perfect Law of liberty, and continuing in it, this one not having become a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in his doing.

Rom 12:2  And be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is the good and pleasing and perfect will of God.
Rom 12:3  For through the grace which is given to me, I say to everyone being among you, not to have high thoughts beyond what is right to think. But set your mind to be right-minded, even as God divided a measure of faith to each.
Rom 12:4  For even as we have many members in one body, but all members do not have the same function,
Rom 12:5  so we the many are one body in Christ, and each one members of one another,
Rom 12:6  but having different gifts according to the grace given to us, whether prophecy, according to the proportion of the faith;
{Remember that these gifts are given for the perfecting of the saints Ephesians 4:12}

Eph 4:4  There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
Eph 4:5  One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
Eph 4:6  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Eph 4:7  But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
Eph 4:11  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Eph 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

The Righteousness of the Torah being fulfilled through us
2Co 4:10  always bearing about the dying of the Lord Jesus in the body, that also the life of Jesus may be revealed in our body.
2Co 4:11  For we who live are always being delivered up to death on account of Jesus, that also the life of Jesus may be revealed in our mortal flesh;
Rom 8:4  so that the righteous demand of the Law might be fulfilled in us, those not walking according to flesh, but according to Spirit.

PSOOKE & ZOE
Joh 12:25  The one who loves his life (Psuche) loses it, and the one who hates his life (Psuche) in this world will keep it to everlasting life(Zoe).

LOSING LIFE (PSUCHE) GAINING LIFE (ZOE)
Luk 17:33  Whoever seeks to save his life (G5590 Psuke), he will lose it. And whoever will lose it, he will preserve it.
Psuke is the fleshly life or self or old man…
Col 3:9  Do not lie to one another, having put off the old man with his practices,
Col 3:10  and having put on the new, having been renewed in full knowledge according to the image of the One creating him,
Col 3:11  where there is no Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, foreigner, Scythian, slave or freeman, but Christ is all things and in all.
Col 3:12  Therefore, as elect ones of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassions, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering,
Col 3:13  bearing with one another and forgiving yourselves, if anyone has a complaint against any; even as Christ forgave you, so also you should forgive.
Col 3:14  And above all these, love, which is the bond of perfectness.
Col 3:15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which you also were called in one body, and be thankful.
Col 3:16  Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly, in all wisdom teaching and exhorting yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Zoe is the Spirit life…MESSIAH IN YOU
Gal 2:20  I have been crucified with Christ (die to flesh {psuche} Romans 6), and I live (zoe); yet no longer I, but Christ lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith toward the Son of God, the One loving me and giving Himself over on my behalf.
2Co 4:10  always bearing about the dying of the Lord Jesus in the body, that also the life of Jesus may be revealed in our body.
2Co 4:11  For we who live are always being delivered up to death on account of Jesus, that also the life of Jesus may be revealed in our mortal flesh;

Romans chapter 8 describes perfectly this fleshly life vs eternal life struggle that man must face.  The preservation of the flesh is partaking of the tree of knowledge.  It is lawlessness where man chooses what is good and evil.  Dying to the flesh that Messiah might live through us is partaking of the Tree of Life.  This is righteousness where the Word describes what is good and what is evil.  The Holy Spirit leads and guides us to the Tree of Life.  The spirit of disobedience leads to the tree of knowledge.  Herein lies the two paths described in this study.

Rom 8:8  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Rom 8:9  But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Rom 8:10  And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Rom 8:11  But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

The Sons of Elohim, reborn into the Image of Messiah.

Rom 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
Rom 8:15  For you did not receive a spirit of slavery again to fear, but you received a Spirit of adoption by which we cry, Abba! Father!
Rom 8:16  The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God.
Rom 8:17  And if children, also heirs; truly heirs of God, and joint-heirs of Christ, if indeed we suffer together, that we may also be glorified together.
Rom 8:18  For I calculate that the sufferings of the present time are not worthy to compare to the coming glory to be revealed in us.
Rom 8:19  For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly awaits the revelation of the sons of God.
Rom 8:20  For the creation was not willingly subjected to vanity, but through Him subjecting it, on hope;
Rom 8:21  that also the creation will be freed from the slavery of corruption to the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
Rom 8:22  For we know that all the creation groans together and travails together until now.
Rom 8:23  And not only so, but also we ourselves having the firstfruit of the Spirit, also we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly expecting adoption, the redemption of our body;
Rom 8:24  for we were saved by hope, but hope being seen is not hope; for what anyone sees, why does he also hope?
Rom 8:25  But if we hope for what we do not see, through patience we wait eagerly.
Rom 8:26  And likewise the Spirit also joins in to help our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes on our behalf with groanings that cannot be uttered.
Rom 8:27  But the One searching the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because He petitions on behalf of the saints according to God.
Rom 8:28  But we know that to the ones loving God all things work together for good, to those being called according to purpose;
Rom 8:29  because whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, for Him to be the First-born among many brothers.
Rom 8:30  But whom He predestinated, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

Paul talks about the Kingdom within you or the Messiah in  you.  He links this concept to maturity/perfection.
Col 1:26  the mystery having been hidden from the ages and from the generations, but now was revealed to His saints;
Col 1:27  to whom God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the nations, who is Christ in you, the hope of glory;
Col 1:28  whom we announce, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man full-grown in Christ Jesus,

Luk 17:21  nor will they say, Lo, here! Or, Lo, there! For behold the kingdom of God is in your midst.

Citizens of Zion

Psa 87:5  And it shall be said to Zion, This man and that man was born in her; and the Highest Himself shall establish her.

Psa 87:6  In recording the peoples YHWH shall mark down, This man was born there. Selah.

Here we see that being a citizen of Zion is linked with being marked.
Psa 87:7  And the singers, the players of the pipe: all my springs are in You. This verse links to Revelation 14 where it speaks of the song only 144,000 sing.

Rev 14:1  And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion! And with Him were a hundred and forty four thousands, with the name of His Father having been written on their foreheads.
Rev 14:2  And I heard a sound out of Heaven, as a sound of many waters, and as a sound of great thunder. Also I heard a sound of harpers harping on their harps.
Rev 14:3  And they sing as a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders. And no one was able to learn the song except the hundred and forty four thousands, those having been redeemed from the earth.
Rev 14:4  These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones following the Lamb wherever He may go. These were redeemed from among men as a firstfruit to God and to the Lamb.
Rev 14:5  And no guile was found in their mouth, for they are without blemish before the throne of God.
Heb 12:22  But you have drawn near Mount Zion, even the city of the living God, to a heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels,
Heb 12:23  and to a gathering, an assembly of the first-born ones having been enrolled in Heaven; and to God the Judge of all, and to spirits of just ones who have been perfected;
Heb 12:24  and to Jesus the Mediator of a new covenant, and to blood of sprinkling speaking better things than that of Abel.

Adam’s Rib

Gen 2:21  And YHWH God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh underneath.
Gen 2:22  And YHWH God formed the rib which He had taken (laqach – as seen above is in reference to marriage/one flesh) from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man.

The word for ‘rib’ in Hebrew is ‘tsela’ which means the side.  It is also translated as the sides of the Tabernacle, and the chambers of the Temple.

Amazingly, the boards of the Tabernacles were 46 in number, corresponding to the number of chromosomes in the human body which hold our DNA (Exodus 26:18-23).

Priesthood connection.
‘Tsela’ is also used to translate the word for ‘chambers’ used in the Temple (1 Kings 6:15-17).  It is believed that the Levites dwelt in these chambers during their courses.  Interestingly, when YHWH took one of  Adam’s 24 ribs it left him with 23.  23 & 24 is used in reference to the priesthood in multiple occasions in the Scripture.

There were 23,000 Levites in the wilderness (Numbers 26:62) and later they were divided into 24 courses (2 Chronicles 24:1-19).

Interestingly, the ‘Gematria’ of 46 in the Scriptures shows forth some interesting connections to the current study.  I will leave it to the reader to delve into more detail.

Deep sleep

Gen 2:21  And YHWH God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh underneath.

The word above for deep sleep in Hebrew is ‘tardemah.’  The next time this verse is used is when the covenant was cut with Abraham at Passover.

Gen 15:12  And it happened, the sun was going, and a deep sleep fell on Abram. And behold, a terror of great darkness was falling on him!
Gen 15:13  And He said to Abram, Knowing you must know that your seed shall be an alien in a land not theirs; and they shall serve them. And they shall afflict them four hundred years;
Gen 15:14  and I also will judge that nation whom they shall serve; and afterward they shall come out with great substance.

It was on this selfsame day that Israel was redeemed by the blood of the lamb and left Egypt (Exodus 12:41).  It was on this selfsame day that mankind was redeemed by the Lamb of Elohim.

Interestingly, the Hebrew word for ‘selfsame day’ in Exodus 12:41 is ‘etsem.’  It literally means ‘bone’ in Hebrew.  Its usage in Scripture in reference to ‘selfsame’ day is very interesting in light of the current study.  The first time this word is used in the selfsame day context is in Genesis 7:13, speaking of Noah entering the ark.  Noah entering the ark is a picture of the wedding supper.

The next usage of this word is in Genesis 17:23, speaking of the day when Abraham was circumcised as a sign of the covenant where he was to walk before Elohim and be perfect, as discussed above.

‘Etsem’ as a ‘selfsame day’ is then seen in Exodus 24:10, speaking of the meal that YHWH has with Yisrael when the covenant was cut.  Again, a reference to the wedding supper.

As seen in part 1click here, Passover is linked to the mark of YHWH(Exodus 13:6-9; Ezekiel 9:4-6).  The deep sleep of Abraham links this feast to the ‘wedding’ of Adam and Eve.  Scripture and ancient tradition also supports this.  The Exodus from Egypt, and the return of Messiah for His bride occurs at midnight (Exodus 12:29; Matthew 25:6).  In ancient Hebrew custom, the potential bridegroom would offer a cup of wine to the woman and if she accepted it was a sign that she had accepted his proposal.  This points to the wine that was offered by Messiah at Passover which shall be drank again in the Kingdom/restored Eden(Matthew 26:29; Luke 22:18, 30).

The counterfeit of the above is the beast kingdom.  The marriage of the beast and his bride known in the mysteries as the ‘alchemical wedding.’

The ‘chemical marriage’ or ‘alchemical wedding’ is described in Rosicrucianism.  Manly Hall tells the story of the ‘Chemical marriage’ in his book Secret Teachings of All Ages.  Below, a few main points which link to the current study are reproduced.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 502
“Christian Rosencreutz, having prepared in his heart the Paschal Lamb together with a small unleavened loaf, was disturbed while at prayer one evening before Easter by a violent storm which threatened to
demolish not only his little house but the very hill on which it stood. In the midst of the tempest he was touched on the back and, turning, he beheld a glorious woman with wings filled with eyes, and robed in sky-colored garments spangled with stars. In one hand she held a trumpet and in the other a bundle of letters in every language. Handing a letter to C.R.C., she immediately ascended into the air, at the same
time blowing upon her trumpet a blast which shook the house. Upon the seal of the letter was a curious cross and the words In hoc signo vinces. Within, traced in letters of gold on an azure field, was an
invitation to a royal wedding.”

Notice that this wedding occurs during the Passover and Easter season.  This is a perfect example of the Mysteries.  Taking the truth of Scripture and manipulating and altering it to lead astray.

“C.R.C. {Christian Rosencreutz} was deeply moved by the invitation because it was the fulfillment of a prophecy which he had received seven years before, but so unworthy did he feel that he was paralyzed with fear. At length, after resorting to prayer, he sought sleep.

Here we see the connection to deep sleep (‘tardemah’) mentioned above.

“In his dreams he found himself in a loathsome dungeon with a
multitude of other men, all bound and fettered with great chains. The grievousness of their sufferings was increased as they stumbled over each other in the darkness. Suddenly from above came the sound of
trumpets; the cover of the dungeon was lifted, and a ray of light pierced the gloom. Framed in the light stood a hoary-headed man who announced that a rope would be lowered seven times and whoever could cling to the rope would be drawn up to freedom.”

This scene is a picture of the 7 rungs in the ladder of Freemasonry and Mithraism which brings the initiate from the death (the dungeon/pit) to life.  More on this below.

“C.R.C. despaired of being saved, but suddenly the rope swung towards him and, grasping it, he was raised from the dungeon….With renewed faith C. R. C. arose and prepared himself for the Hermetic Marriage. He donned a white linen coat and bound a red ribbon crosswise over his shoulders. In his hat he stuck four roses and for food he carried bread, water, and salt.”

On the second day, Christian Rosencreutz made it to the banquet and a character named ‘Virgo Lucifera’ is described.  She is the Harlot of Revelation 17:5.  As seen in previous studies, Lucifer appears as a woman in some cases, specifically a Virgin.

On the fifth day, ‘Virgo Lucifera’ and her virgins lead the initiates to the Tower of Olympus.  The mythical residence of the ‘gods’ which is a counterfeit garden of Eden/Kingdom of Heaven.  The Tower of Olympus is even described as being exactly square and surrounded by a great wall, just as New Jerusalem is in the book of Revelation (Revelation 21:2-21).

It is at the Tower of Olympus where the ‘medicines’ necessary are found to resurrect the six royal persons described in the story relayed by Manly Hall.  This is referring to a counterfeit Tree of Life, whose fruit brings healing to the nations (Revelation 22:2).

“On the seventh day, In the morning Virgo Lucifera announced that each of the wedding guests had become a “Knight of the Golden Stone.” The aged warden then presented each man with a gold medal, bearing on one side the inscription “At. Nat. Mi. ” and on the other, “Tem. Na. F.” The entire company returned in twelve ships to the King’s palace. The flags on the vessels bore the signs of the zodiac, and C.R.C. sat under that of Libra.”

The golden stone mentioned above is the Philosopher’s stone, the ‘secret of immortality.’  This is discussed in more detail in part 10click here.  The signs of the Zodiac mentioned are a counterfeit of the people and calendar of the Most High.  This will be discussed in more detail below.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 512-513
“Under the symbolism of an alchemical marriage, mediæval philosophers concealed the secret system of spiritual culture whereby they hoped to coordinate the disjecta membra (Latin for scattered fragments) of both the human and social organisms. Society, they maintained, was a threefold structure and had its analogy in the triune
constitution of man, for as man consists of spirit, mind, and body, so society is made up of the church, the state, and the populace.”

“The first six days of The Chemical Marriage set forth the processes of
philosophical “creation” through which every organism must pass.”

“From an ethical standpoint, the young King and Queen resurrected at the summit of the tower and ensouled by Divine Life represent the forces of Intelligence and Love which must ultimately guide society. Intelligence and Love are the two great ethical luminaries of the world and correspond to enlightened spirit and regenerated body. The bridegroom is reality and the bride the regenerated being who attains perfection by becoming one with reality through a cosmic marriage wherein the mortal part attains immortality by being united with its own immortal Source. In the Hermetic Marriage divine and human consciousness are united in holy wedlock and he in whom this sacred ceremony takes place is
designated as “Knight of the Golden Stone”; he thereby becomes a divine philosophic diamond composed of the quintessence of his own sevenfold constitution.”

“Such is the true interpretation of the mystical process of becoming “a bride of the Lamb.” The Lamb of God is signified by the Golden Fleece that Jason was forced to win before he could assume his kingship.
The Flying Lion is illumined will, an absolute prerequisite to the achievement of the Great Work. The episode of weighing the souls of men has its parallel in the ceremony described in the Egyptian Book of
the Dead. The walled city entered by C.R.C. represents the sanctuary of wisdom wherein dwell the real rulers of the world–the initiated philosophers.”

“Like the ancient Mysteries after which it was patterned, the Order of the Rose Cross possessed a secret ritual which was lived by the candidate for a prescribed number of years before he was eligible to the inner degrees of the society. The various floors of the Tower of Olympus represent the orbits of the planets. The ascent of the philosophers from one floor to another also parallels certain rituals of the Eleusinian Mysteries and the rites of Mithras wherein the candidate ascended the seven rungs of a ladder or climbed the seven steps of a pyramid in order to signify release from the influences of the Planetary Governors. Man becomes master of the seven spheres only when he transmutes the impulses received from them. He who masters the seven worlds and is reunited with the Divine Source of his own nature consummates the Hermetic Marriage.”

Here we see the movement of the heavenly bodies (calendar) is linked to the alchemical wedding.  This is a counterfeit of the Biblical calendar and wedding supper of the Lamb.

Feasts & Holydays

His Sabbaths are the sign of the marriage covenant.

Eze 20:12  And I also gave them My sabbaths to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am YHWH who sets them apart.
Eze 20:20  And keep My sabbaths holy, and they shall be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am YHWH your God.

The Hebrew word for the Biblical Feasts/Sabbaths is moedim.  This comes from the same root word עד ‘ad’ as יעד  ‘ya’ad’ which is translated as appointment, assemble, and betroth.

The Feasts are ‘wedding rehearsals.’

Lev 23:4  These are the feasts {H4150 moed} of the LORD, even holy convocations which ye shall proclaim in their seasons {H4150 moed}.

H4150 מועדה  מעד  מועד mô‛êd  /  mô‛êd  /  mô‛âdâh

Feast of Tabernacles….husband and wife dwell together

The Calendarclick here is based upon the movements of the heavenly bodies, in specific the sun.  The feasts & time are linked to being marked.

Exo 31:13  And you speak to the sons of Israel, saying, Keeping you shall keep My sabbaths; for it is a sign (אות)between Me and you for your generation; to know that I am YHWH your sanctifier.

Exo 31:16  And the sons of Israel shall observe the Sabbath, to do the Sabbath for their generations; it is a never ending covenant.
Exo 31:17  It is a sign (אות)forever between Me and the sons of Israel; for in six days YHWH made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.

Eze 20:12  And I also gave them My sabbaths to be a sign (אות)
between Me and them, that they might know that I am YHWH who sets them apart.
Eze 20:20  And keep My sabbaths holy, and they shall be a sign (אות)between Me and you, that you may know that I am YHWH your God.

The are multiple words for time in Hebrew, the most used is עת (et) which pictographically means to ‘see the cross’, and in ancient Hebrew thinking meant to ‘see the mark.’  What is this ‘mark’?  It is the sun setting (death) and rising (resurrection) above the horizon.

עת corresponds to the Greek word καιρός (kairos) through comparing Daniel 7:25 & Revelation 12:6, 14.

In the Septuagint, kairos is used to translate numerous words but one of which is very interesting.  The word ‘tor’ due to its relation to the concept of ‘the mark.’

From this root we get ta’ar and to’ar.  These words mean form, outline or border.

‘Toar’ is from the same root ‘tor’ as Torah

The word ‘horizon’ is also linked to the mark. Horizon comes from the Greek word ‘horizo’ which is translated as ‘marked out’ in the book of Romans.

Rom 1:1  Paul, a slave of Jesus Christ, a called apostle, separated to the gospel of God,
Rom 1:2  which He promised before through His prophets in the holy Scriptures,
Rom 1:3  concerning His Son who came of the seed of David according to flesh,
Rom 1:4 
who was marked out the Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord;

The meaning of this word corresponds to the Hebrew word Tor.  It is only through the resurrection that we will be formed into His image.

This can further be seen through the a connection to the Aramaic word ‘ruoshma’.

2Co 3:7  Now if the ministration of death was engraved(aetrashmat)* upon stones in writing, and was so glorious that the children of Israel could not look on the face of Moses, on account of the glory upon his face which vanished away;

*Here we see this word being linked to the Torah which was engraved on stone.  In the human body the ‘word’ is engraved on stone (DNA)…

Rom 8:29 He knew them in advance and he marked (Gk predestined) them with the likeness of the image of his Son that he might be the first-born among many brethren.

Again the connection to the mark and the image.  The image of the Son vs. the image of the beast.
Eph 1:4  according as he had previously chosen us in him, before the foundation of the world, that we might be holy and without blame before him; and, in love, predestinated (Gk chosen) us for himself;

The chosen peopleclick here are marked with the mark of YHWH…those who keep the Torah and the testimony (belief in Messiah Yahshua Revelation 12:17).  Those with the mark of the beast are those who reject Messiah Yahshua and according to the Scriptures are already antichrists (1Joh 2:18).


Eph 1:11 By whom we have been chosen, as he had marked (Gk. predestinated) us from the beginning so he wanted to carry out everything according to the good judgment of his will:

This connection of predestination and being marked is connected by the heavenly books.
Psa 56:8  You have counted my wandering; O put my tear in Your bottle; are they not in Your Book?

Psa 139:16  Your eyes saw my embryo; and in Your book all my members were written the days they were formed, and not one was yet among them. *
Mal 3:16  Then those fearing YHWH spoke together, each man to his neighbor. And YHWH gave attention and heard. And a Book of Remembrance was written before Him for those who feared YHWH, and for those esteeming His name.

The meaning of horizo is linked with the above definition of ‘mark.’  It means to mark out a boundary.  The English word horizon comes from this Greek word.

The sun is a shadow picture of Messiah.

The sun, ‘shemesh’, comes from the root word ‘shem’, the name.  As mentioned above His Name = His Word.  As the sun moves through it courses, it teaches the Gospel as seen in the above section.

In the Scriptures, the sun is likened to YHWH/Yahshua.

Mal 4:2  But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall rise up, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall.

YHWH & Yahshua are likened unto the sun

Psa 84:11  For YHWH God is a sun and shield; YHWH will give grace and glory; He will withhold nothing good from those who walk in integrity.

Psa 19:4  Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
Psa 19:5  Which
is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

Mat 9:15  And Jesus said to them, Can the sons of the bridechamber mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will have been taken from them, and then they will fast.
Isa 9:2  The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light. The ones who dwell in the land of the shadow of death, light has shone on them.
Isa 49:6  And He said, It is too little that You should be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also give You for a light of the nations, that You may be My salvation to the end of the earth.
Isa 60:1  Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of Jehovah has risen on you!
Isa 60:2  For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples. But YHWH shall rise on you, and His glory shall be seen on you.
Isa 60:3  And nations shall walk to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawning.
Joh 8:12  Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, I am the Light of the world. The one following Me will in no way walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.

The sun is the greater light ‘ma’or’ which rules the day.  Messiah applies this to Himself

Joh 11:9  Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble because he sees the light of the world.
Joh 12:35  Then Jesus said to them, Yet a little while the Light is with you. Walk while you have the Light, that darkness not overtake you. And the one walking in the darkness does not know where he is going.
Joh 12:36  While you have the Light, believe into the Light, that you may become sons of Light. Jesus spoke these things, and going away He was hidden from them.
Joh 9:4  It behooves Me to work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day. Night comes when no one is able to work.
Joh 9:5  While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.

Messiah also applies the term ‘light of the world’ to His bride.  Interestingly Song of Songs 6:9-10 applies the moon and sun to His bride as well.

Mat 5:14  You are the light of the world. A city situated on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Mat 5:15  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under the grain measure, but on the lampstand; and it shines for all those in the house.
Mat 5:16  So let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father in Heaven.

There are 12 hours in the day (John 11:9) which again points to the body of Messiah, ie the 12 tribes.  The Hebrew word for hour is ‘sha’ah’ which comes from the watching of the arch of the sun to determine the hour.  This is the origin of the gnomon/sundial which was mentioned above by Keil & Delitzsch (gnomen = nomen/name).

Interestingly, ‘sh’ah’ (hour) is a cognate of ‘yeshuah’ (salvation).  Both words come from the root ‘sha’ which refers to a shepherd watching over his flock.  On a deeper level, it is pointing to Messiah saving His bride at the ‘midnight cry’ (Matthew 25:6; Exodus 12:29).  The calendar is based upon the movements of the heavenly bodies which points directly to Messiah.  The cycles of the feasts throughout the year points to Him, the cycles of the Jubilees, and even the hours of our day point to Him.  All was created to reveal His Glory.

Sir 42:16  The sun that giveth light looketh upon all things, and the work thereof is full of the glory of the Lord.

The word ‘sha’ is referring to the shepherd watching over His flock.  This relates to another Hebrew word ‘ahn’:

The English word ‘eye’ comes from this Hebrew word.  Notice how these words that are related to the sun also are related to watching and the eye.  This is one of numerous reasons why the heathen worshiped the ‘sun god’.  This is why the sun god is portrayed with an ‘all seeing eye’ as well as being related to the triangle/pyramid, which is in the same shape as the ancient Hebrew letter dalet, which is the origin of the Greek letter delta.  Dalet has the gematria of 4 which relates to the 4th dimension of time, of which the sun is intimately connected.

The sun, moon and stars were created to be shadow pictures of Messiah.  As with all shadows of Messiah, the perversion/counterfeit of those pictures leads to the antichristclick here.  The Hebrew word for owl, ‘ya’anah’, also comes from this root ‘ahn’ and is used throughout heathen cultures as a symbol of the goddess/moon as light of the nightclick here.

The sun is further connected to the eye through the Hebrew word for the eyelashes.

Each blink/twinkling (1 Corinthians 15:52) of our eyes is a picture of the resurrection where we are gathered together to our Lord.  The root of the word ‘aphaph’ is ‘aph’ which is a picture of a bird covering its chicks with its wings (Deuteronomy 32:10-11; Psalm 91:1-9).  Each day when the sun rises it is a picture of the resurrection as well (Malachi 4:2). In Hebrew the word for dawn is shachar from the root shach which means the pit.  When the sun sets it is a picture of death/going into the pit, when it arises it is a picture of resurrection.  When man awakens, his eyes are opened from darkness and sleep which is a picture of death (Job 14:13-15; Daniel 12:2-3; John 11:11-14) .

1Co 15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1Co 15:53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
The word ‘twinkling’ here is from the Greek:

G4493
ῥιπή
rhipē
Thayer Definition:
1) a throw, stroke, beat
2) a moment of time

This word is used in the Septuagint to translate the Hebrew word ‘shachaq’ which means to beat/pound/pulverize to powder (Genesis 3:19) and comes from the root ‘shaq’ which means the ‘pit’.  ‘Shaq’ is the root of the word ‘shaqar’ which means the ‘dawn’.  Again, the imagery of the blinking/twinkling of the eyes showing the picture of the resurrection of the dead.

The 2nd coming of Messiah and the resurrection of the dead is pictured by the rising of the sun each morning.

Psa 110:3  Your people shall have willingness in the day of Your might; in the majesties of holiness; from the womb of the dawn, to You is the dew of Your youth.

Psa 30:4  Sing praises to YHWH, O saints of His; and give thanks to the memory of His holiness.
Psa 30:5  For His anger is only a moment; in His favor is life. Weeping may endure in the evening
(Tribulation period), but joy comes in the morning (2nd coming & resurrection).

This concept of tribulation being darkness and the coming of Messiah in the morning is further seen in Psalm 46, which is clearly set during the tribulation/kingdom time period.

Psa 46:1  To the chief musician. For the sons of Korah; A song. For the Virgins. God is our refuge and strength, very much found to be a help in distresses.
Psa 46:2  On account of this we will not fear when the earth changes and when mountains are slipping into the heart of the seas.
Psa 46:3  Let its waters foam; let the mountains shake in its swelling. Selah.
Psa 46:4  There is a river, its channels gladden the city of God, the holy tabernacles of the Most High.
Psa 46:5  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be shaken;
God will help her at the turning of the morning.
Psa 46:6  The nations roared; kingdoms were shaken; He gave forth His voice and the earth melted.
Psa 46:7  YHWH of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is a refuge for us. Selah.
Psa 46:8  Come, behold the works of YHWH, who sets ruins on the earth,
Psa 46:9  causing wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts apart spears; He burns the chariots in the fire.
Psa 46:10  Be still and know that I am God! I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth.
Psa 46:11  YHWH of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is a refuge for us. Selah.

Two eyes (2 births), first the natural & then the spiritual.

The Hebrew word for blink is ‘patah’ from the root ‘pat’.

The root word comes from ‘pat’ which is the word for a woman’s privy.  This links to the first birth, blinking/awakening (picture of resurrection) is linked to the 2nd birth.

Another amazing link to the 2nd birth/birth of the manchild of Revelation 12 is seen Isaiah 8

Isa 8:18  Behold, I and the children(Messiah & His Body) whom YHWH has given to me are for signs and wonders (mophat) in Israel from YHWH of Hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion.

As seen in the study ‘Shadows of Messiah – Geology’click here, the earth is a picture of the body of Messiah which is likened to an eyeball.

Yisrael is a people & a land which YHWH looks upon at all times which is a microcosm of all the earth.

Talmud – Derech Eretz Zuta 9
‘The world is like a human eyeball.  The white of the eye is the ocean surrounding the world, the iris is the continent, The pupil is Jerusalem, And the image in the pupil is the Holy Temple.

Deu 11:11  But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
Deu 11:12  A land which the LORD thy God careth for:
the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.

Rev 5:6  And I saw, and behold, in the midst of the throne, and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, was a Lamb standing, as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, having been sent out into all the earth.

Each time we blink (aphaph -from aph, shadow of His wings) it is a picture of being overshadowed by the Most High, where the tears renew the eye, this is a picture of baptism and being born againclick here.  This concept is further seen in the Psalms where the resurrection is connected with renewed sight.

Psa 17:15  As for me, in righteousness I will look upon Your face; when I awaken, I shall be satisfied by Your image.

The sun, the eye, and the Son are all linked through the English etymology of the word ‘sun’.

The English proper noun sun developed from Old English sunne (around 725, attested in Beowulf), and may be related to south (more on this below on the section on directions). Cognates to English sun appear in other Germanic languages, including Old Frisian sunne, sonne (“sun”), Old Saxon sunna, Middle Dutch sonne, modern Dutch zon, Old High German sunna, modern German Sonne, Old Norse sunna, and Gothic sunnō. All Germanic terms for the Sun stem from Proto-Germanic *sunnōn.

The word ‘sun’ also traces back to the Latin word ‘sol.’

The English word ‘son’ has similar etymological roots to ‘sun’.  Interestingly, it traces back the Old Irish meaning to give birth, as has been discussed above in connection with the blinking of the eye, awakening and the rising of the sun in the morning.

Sun, 8, Resurrection

The word for 8 in Hebrew is:

This comes from the root:

The root of 8 comes from ‘shem’ (name/character) which is the same root as sun ‘shemesh.’

Further connecting the sun & the number eight is the word oil.  The Holy Spirit is likened to oil (1Samuel 16:13; Zechariah 4:2-3; Revelation 4:5).  The sun moves upon the spirit/wind (Ecclesiastes 1:5-6)

רח is the root of the word ‘Ruach’, the Spirit.

The sun’s cycle makes an interesting form when it moves throughout the sky during the year.  This phenomenon is known as the ‘analemma.’  If you photographed the sun once a week at the same time of day for an entire year, you would have a photo of the analemma, the sun’s apparent path on the sky over the course of a year, which looks like a figure-eight.

The Sun is moving in a continual ‘figure eight’ path.

Could this be why the infinity symbol is portrayed as the number 8 on its side?  Is this where the image of the ‘Ourobouros’ (serpent eating its tail) comes from?  The heathen mystery religions are a counterfeit of the Truth of the Holy Scriptures, perverting the heavenly bodies and their meanings.  The Mazzaroth (Constellations) teach of the Gospel of Messiah.  His birth, death and resurrection.  So what is seen in the mystery religions?  Stories of Christ figures born of virgins, dying as atonement for mankind, and resurrecting etc.   The Almighty allows these religions (Deu. 4:19) in order to give unregenerate man a taste of the Truth so that when the time comes for them to return to Him, their minds are already somewhat prepared and so that no man can have an excuse because He has been calling to us to repent from the beginning (Psalm 19; Rom 1:19; 10:18)

The Analemma & DNA

Not only does the analemma form a figure eight, but it also is in the form of a double spiral, just like the DNA double helix.

Uriel’s Machine pg 226
“The origin of the double spiral was discovered by an American artist called Charles Ross.  He set up an experiement where he arranged a lens in front of a wooden plank, so that it focused the sun’s rays on the plank and burned a track on the wood.  Each day he put a new piece of wood in the plank-holder and after 366 consecutive days he plotted out the pattern the sun’s rays had burned into the planks.  He found that the resulting shape was a perfect double spiral.  During the summer the track formed a tight clockwise spiral, whilst in the winger it formed a widely spaced anti-clockwise spiral.  At the equinox the track began to straighten out as the loose winter spiral stopped and was transformed into a tight spiral moving in the opposite sense.”

The Covenant

When YHWH cut the covenant with Abraham on Passover, He walked between the pieces of the sacrificed animals as a burning torch.  In ancient times when a covenant was cut, the two covenant partners walked through the halves of the split animal(s) in a ‘figure eight’.  They would lay each half to the side of each other and stand in between the two bloody halves of flesh, with their backs to each other. Then they would walk right through the bloody halves, making a figure eight, and come back to a stop facing each other.

Gen 15:17  And it happened, the sun had gone down, and it was dark. Behold! A smoking furnace and a torch of fire that passed between those pieces!

The number 8 points to the Sun of Righteousness

Molad

Sun & moon are ‘one’ at the new moon (twinkling of eye)

http://postponements.com/id48.htm

Rabbi Nathan Bushwick writes in his book, “Understanding the Jewish Calendar,” page 71, “As the moon moves around the Earth, there is one moment it is exactly between the Earth and the sun. At that moment the Earth faces the dark side of the moon. Already for about a day before this moment the moon has not been visible from any point on the Earth and it will remain invisible for about a day more. This moment is call the molad [mean], the birth of the new moon. We (Jews) use the molad as the official beginning and end point of the cycle of the moon.” Molad is Hebrew for the word “birth or renewal.”

Maimonides states that: “the new moon is defined as the ‘moment in which the sun and moon, in their uniform motion, become conjoined in a certain part of the sky, which occurs in the same way everywhere in different areas” (Sanctification of the New Moon, Bk 3, trtse. 8, p. 89, ch 6).

This is also called the ‘twinkling of the eye’

Rabbi Eliezer describes the molad(conjunction) as a “twinkling of an eye” in Rabbi Eliezer-The Course of the Moon p55

1Co 15:52  In a moment, in a glance of an eye, at the last trumpet; for a trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall all be changed.

The resurrection is at the twinkling of an eye.  The righteous will bud forth and fly when there is “no moon”.

Psa 72:7  In His days the righteous shall flourish (bud, fly-the resurrection), and plenty of peace, till the moon is not (בלי ירח when there is no moon, ie the molad/conjunction).

Flourish = parach

On a deeper level, this link between birth/resurrection and the molad/conjunction is seen at Golgotha during the crucifixion of Messiah.  The sun was darkened (Luke 23:45).  In the natural, the sun is only darkened during a solar eclipse which can only occur during the conjunction between the sun and moon.  It is at this time, when the sun was darkened that the bride of Messiah was born.  Just as Eve came forth from the side of Adam when he slept (death), so too the bride of Messiah came forth from His side when blood and water fell at Calvary.

On an even deeper level, this link between the molad/conjunction and birth/rebirth is seen in the word ‘chodesh’ which means renewal and is applied to the new moon/month.  Chodesh comes from ‘chad.’

Chad/Echad means unity and is the picture of 2 becoming one.  This happens when a man and woman come together and ‘know’ each other.  This is connected with the new moon and the sun and moon coming together to become ‘one.’  The Hebrew word for the male privy is arak which is the same word for the shaft of the Menorah.  On a deeper level this shows that light going into darkness is when ‘chad’ takes place.  Further illustrating this is the word menorah itself.  It comes from the Hebrew word ner which is seen when farmers plow their fields in order to plant seed.  The ground that is broken up is saturated with water and the light that reflects from the sun is what ner means.  Again light comes forth from darkness as is seen in Gen 1 and in the moon cycles.  The seed is planted in the earth, which is likened to a womb according to David in Psalm 137.  On another level this represents being born againclick here.  The biblical definition of being born again begins when He plants His seed (His Word) in our hearts.  The seed must die and be born again into a new creature.  This is what baptism is about, we descend into darkness to begin our new lives and come forth again.  The new moon begins at darkness then light comes forth 1-3 days later.  Messiah resurrected after 3 days, His people resurrect after 3 days (Hos 6).  Messiah speaks of the seed dying as a picture of resurrection (John 12:24) and Shaul connects this as well (1 Cor 15).

Interestingly, when the sun and moon come together during a solar eclipse a hexagram is formed.  As seen above, the hexagram is a symbol of the union between man and woman.  This is yet another example of man taking something from Yah’s creation and perverting it by making it an image engraved by his own device.

This hexagonal formation as a result of the sun and moon coming together is linked to the occult symbol of the ‘Vesica Pisces.’

Vesica Pisces

In the occult world, the Vesica Pisces is a veiled symbol of the Seal of Solomon.  As with the Rosy Cross, square & compass, Yin-Yang symbol and the hexagram itself, the vesica pisces represents the mingling of opposites.  Male and female.  Light and dark.  In esoteric thought representing dualism, good and evil mixed together.

http://www.halexandria.org/dward097.htm

“In the earliest traditions, the supreme being was represented by a sphere, the symbol of a being with no beginning and no end, continually existing, perfectly formed and profoundly symmetrical.  The addition of a second sphere represented the expansion of unity into the duality of male and female, god and goddess. By overlapping, the two spheres, the god and goddess created a divine offspring.

The joining of male and female to bring forth divine offspring is the essence of the Mysteries.  This traces back to Genesis 6 where the fallen angels (the male) went into the daughters of men (female) to bring forth the Nephilim.  The imagery of the Mysteries bears out this fact.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 290
“THE yoni and phallus were worshiped by nearly all ancient peoples as appropriate symbols of God’s creative power. The Garden of Eden, the Ark, the Gate of the Temple, the Veil of the Mysteries, the vesica piscis or oval nimbus, and the Holy Grail are important yonic symbols; the pyramid, the obelisk, the cone, the candle, the tower, the Celtic monolith, the spire, the campanile, the Maypole, and the Sacred Spear are symbolic of the phallus.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flower_of_Life

In Sacred Geometry, the Vesica Pisces is the beginning of the seed of life, which then becomes the flower of life.

The Vesica Pisces is the basis for the ‘ichthys’ (fish) symbol.  As seen in part 3click here, the fish symbol is not pointing to Messiah Yahshua, but Bacchus/Dionysius who was a type of the beast.

The Vesica Pisces is the basis for the ‘tripod of life’ or the triquetra.  This symbol is discussed in more detail in part 3 as well.

Fruit of Life
The “Fruit of Life” symbol is composed of 13 circles taken from the design of the Flower of Life.  The Fruit of Life is said to be the blueprint of the universe, containing the basis for the design of every atom, molecular structure, life form, and everything in existence.  It contains the geometric basis for the delineation of Metatron’s Cube, which brings forth the platonic solids.

The Kabbalistic Tree of Life derives from the Flower of Life.

Mandorla

The Vesica Pisces is the origin of the ‘mandorla’ which is a described as a cloud of radiant luminance which surrounds religious figures, especially the ‘Virgin Mary.’

Mandorla means almond nut in Italian.  This is interesting to note as there are two words in Hebrew which are translated as almond.

This first is ‘shaqad’ which is the word used for the almond shape figures carved into the Menorah (Exodus 25:33), which represents the Tree of Life.

The second word in Hebrew for almond is ‘luz’ which, according to Rabbinic thought, is related to Jacob’s ladder and the human backbone.  This points to the Kundalini spirit and the tree of knowledge of good and evil where ‘your eyes shall be opened.’

Going back to the subject of Astronomy…

Astronomy & the Word

The movements of the heavenly bodies reveals His Word.

In Hebrew, Astronomy is תכונה

תכונה is only used one time in the Scriptures:

Job 23:3  Oh that I knew where I might find Him, I would come into His seat;

This is speaking of the Throne of Elohim.

Keil and Delitszch commentary

If he but knew how to reach Him (God), could attain to His throne; תְּכוּנָה(everywhere from כּוּן, not from תָּכַן) signifies the setting up, i.e., arrangement (Eze_43:11) or establishment (Nah_2:10) of a dwelling, and the thing itself which is set out and established, here of the place where God’s throne is established.

The Scriptures speak of the heavens as His throne Matthew 5:34; Isaiah 66:1; Psalm 11:4.

תכונה comes from the word כון which means a foundation or something that is firm, something that is orderly.

Psa 103:19  YHWH has prepared (kun) His throne in Heaven, and His kingdom rules over all.

Psa 8:3  When I look upon Your heavens, the work of Your fingers: the moon and the stars which You have fixed (kun);
Psa 8:4  what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man, that You visit him?

תכונה comes from the parent root:

The Seed = the Word

Luk 8:11  And this is the parable: The seed is the Word of God.

The Seed = Messiah

Gal 3:16  But the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his Seed (it does not say, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ). Genesis 3:15; 21:12; 22:18, Rom. 9:6; Heb. 11:18

Messiah = Yisrael

Isa 49:3  And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.
Isa 49:5 And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.

This prophecy is speaking of Messiah.  Messiah is the Servant Israel.
Isa 49:6  And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes(H7626) of Jacob, and to restore(shub…lead back in repentance) the preserved(v’netsri-Netsarim=followers of Messiah) of Israel.I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation(H3444yeshua) unto the end of the earth.

Seed= Messiah= Yisrael = Sun, Moon & Stars

Psa 89:1  A Poem of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the mercies of YHWH forever; I will speak with my mouth Your faithfulness to all generations.
Psa 89:2  For I have said, Mercy shall be built up forever; You shall establish Your faithfulness in the heavens.
Psa 89:3  I have cut a covenant with My elect; I have sworn to David My servant,
Psa 89:4 
I will establish your Seed forever, and build up your throne to all generations. Selah.
Psa 89:5  And the heavens shall thank Your wonders, O YHWH; also Your faithfulness in the assembly of the saints.

Psa 89:29  And I have established his Seed forever, and His throne as the days of the heavens.

Psa 89:35  Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David.
Psa 89:36  His Seed shall be forever, and
his throne as the sun before Me.
Psa 89:37 
Like the moon, it shall be forever; and a faithful witness in the sky. Selah.

Jeremiah links the covenant/Word with the sun, moon and stars (Jeremiah 31:31-37; 33:14-26)

Joseph’s dream links the heavenly bodies to Yisrael

Gen 37:9  And he dreamed still another dream, and told it to his brothers. And he said, Behold, I have dreamed another dream: And, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars were bowing themselves to me.
Gen 37:10  And he told it to his father, and to his brothers. And his father rebuked him, and said to him, What is this dream which you have dreamed? Shall we indeed come to bow ourselves to the earth to you, I, your mother, and your brothers?

His Glory

Psa 8:1  To the chief musician, on the harp. A Psalm of David. O YHWH, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth; You have set Your glory above (על – above/on/upon)the heavens!

His Glory is seen in the heavens…What is the Glory of YHWH?  The Lamb of Elohim (Revelation 21:23).  The Hebrew word for Glory is ‘kavod’ which comes from the root ‘kab’ which means a star:


Psa 8:2  Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings, You have ordained strength, because of the ones distressing You, to cause the enemy and the avenger to cease.
Psa 8:3  When I look upon Your heavens, the work of Your fingers: the moon and the stars which You have fixed;

The work of His fingers is linked to His Word

Exo 31:18  And when He finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave to Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.

Psa 33:6  Through the Word of YHWH the heavens were made; and all their host were made by the breath of His mouth.

Psa 19:1  To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens are recounting* (saphar) the glory of God, and the expanse proclaiming His handiwork.

*The word translated here as recounting/declare is from the Hebrew saphar which is the word used to translate ‘scroll.’

The Scriptures connect the heavens to a scroll
Rev 6:14  And the heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up. And every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
Isa 34:4  And all the host of the heavens shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together like a scroll. Then all their host shall droop, as a leaf drooping from the vine, and as the drooping from a fig tree.
66 words in these two verses…66 books in the Scriptures

Abraham was told to ‘tell’/ count the stars.  The word translated as tell/count is saphar

Gen 15:5  And He brought him outside and said, Look now at the heavens and count the stars, if you are able to count them. And He said to him, So shall your seed be.

Gal 3:16  But the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his Seed (it does not say, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ).

Paul equates the heavens with the Word/Gospel
Rom 10:16  But not all obeyed the gospel, for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?”Isa. 53:1
Rom 10:17  Then faith is of hearing, and hearing through the Word of God.
Rom 10:18  But I say, Did they not hear? Yes, rather, “into all the earth their voice went out, and to the ends of the world their words.”
LXX-Psa. 18:5; MT-Psa. 19:4

Psa 19:1  To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens are recounting the glory (Messiah is the Glory Revelation 21:23)of God, and the expanse proclaiming His handiwork.

Psa 19:2  Day by day they pour forth (a flowing out from within, related to נבא/prophecy) speech (omer from root מל/word), and night to night reveals (חוה this is the name of ‘Eve’ the bride) knowledge.

On a deeper level verse 2 is stating that the sun, moon and stars and their courses are prophesying the Word and revealing knowledge of the bride.  The movement of the heavenly bodies teach the Gospel of Messiah and His bride (the Seed)
Psa 19:3  There is no speech, nor are there words where their voice is not heard.

Psa 19:4  Their voice is gone out into all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.

Psa 19:5  and he comes forth like a bridegroom from his canopy. He rejoices like a hero to run a race;
Psa 19:6  his going forth from the end of the heavens, and his orbit to their ends; and nothing is hidden from his heat.

Notice the following verses in Psalm 19 speak of the Torah, linking the Scroll in heaven to the Scroll on earth

Psa 19:7  The Law of YHWH is perfect, converting the soul. The Testimony of YHWH is sure, making the simple wise.
Psa 19:8  The precepts of YHWH are right, rejoicing the heart. The commands of YHWH are pure, giving light to the eyes.
Psa 19:9  The fear of YHWH is clean, enduring forever. The judgments of YHWH are true, they are righteous altogether.
Psa 19:10  They are more precious than gold, even much fine gold, and sweeter than honey and drops from the honeycomb.
Psa 19:11  Also Your servant is warned by them; in keeping of them is great reward.

The heavens are a parable

Gen 1:18  and to rule over the day and over the night; and to divide between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

The word translated as ‘rule’ here is from the Hebrew ‘mashal’ which means to rule, compare, a proverb or a parable.

The Word is likened to a parable

Psa 78:1  A Lesson of Asaph. O my people, listen to my law; bow your ears to the words of my mouth.
Psa 78:2  I will open my mouth in a parable; I will pour forth dark sayings of old,
Mat 13:34  Jesus spoke all these things in parables to the crowds, and He did not speak to them without a parable,
Mat 13:35  so that was fulfilled that spoken through the prophet, saying: “I will open My mouth in parables; I will speak out things hidden from the foundation of the world.”
Psa. 78:2

His Name

Rev 19:13  and having been clothed in a garment which had been dipped in blood. And His name is called The Word of God.

The Hebrew word for heavens, is ‘shamayim’ which comes from the root word ‘shem’ (name).

Psa 8:1  To the chief musician, on the harp. A Psalm of David. O YHWH, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth; You have set Your glory above the heavens!

Keil & Delitzsch commentary on Psalm 8:1

Psa 8:1-2
(Heb.: 8:2-3) Here, for the first time, the subject speaking in the Psalm is not one individual, but a number of persons; and who should they be but the church of Jahve, which (as in Neh_10:30) can call Jahve its Lord (
אֲדֹנֵינוּ, like אֲדֹנָי from אֲדֹנִים plur. excellentiae, Ges. §108, 2); but knowing also at the same time that what it has become by grace it is called to be for the good of the whole earth? The שֵׁם of God is the impress (cognate Arabic wasm, a sign, Greek σῆμα) of His nature, which we see in His works of creation and His acts of salvation, a nature which can only be known from this visible and comprehensible representation (nomen = gnomen).

Heaven on earth

Jeremiah links the covenant/Word with the sun, moon and stars (Jeremiah 31:31-37; 33:14-26)

Joseph’s dream links the heavenly bodies to Yisrael

Gen 37:9  And he dreamed still another dream, and told it to his brothers. And he said, Behold, I have dreamed another dream: And, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars were bowing themselves to me.
Gen 37:10  And he told it to his father, and to his brothers. And his father rebuked him, and said to him, What is this dream which you have dreamed? Shall we indeed come to bow ourselves to the earth to you, I, your mother, and your brothers?

Stars

Gen 15:5  And He brought him outside and said, Look now at the heavens and count the stars, if you are able to count them. And He said to him, So shall your seed be.

Gen 15:6  And he believed in YHWH. And He counted it to him for righteousness.
Gen 22:16  And He said, I have sworn by Myself, declares YHWH, that on account of this thing you have done, and have not withheld your son, your only son,
Gen 22:17  that blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your seed
as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is on the shore of the sea. And your Seed shall possess the gate of His enemies.
Gen 22:18  And in your Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed because you have obeyed My voice.
Gen 26:4  And I will increase your seed
like the stars of the heavens, and I will give to your seed all these lands. And all the nations of the earth shall bless themselves in your Seed,

Deu 1:10  YHWH your God has multiplied you, and, behold, today you are as the stars of heaven for multitude.
Exo 12:37  And the sons of Israel traveled from Rameses to Succoth, the men being
about six hundred thousand on foot, apart from little ones.
Exo 12:38  And also a mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks, and herds, very many livestock.

The Visible Universe: chapters on the origin and construction of the heavens – John Ellard Gore pg 285
In Durchmusterung* it appears that number of visible stars is 600,000

*Argelander’s Durchmusterung
In astronomy, Durchmusterung or Bonner Durchmusterung (BD), is the usual name for three comprehensive astrometric star catalogues of the whole sky, processed by the Bonn Observatory (Germany) from 1859 to 1903.

What we know about the stars – Abraham Van Doren Honeyman Pg 41

Heavenly bodies = hosts/armies

Gen 2:1  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

Psa 33:6  By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

Exo 7:4  And Pharaoh will not listen to you. And I will put My hand on Egypt, and will bring My armies, My people, the sons of Israel, from the land of Egypt with great judgments.

Exo 12:51  And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.

Adam Clarke
By their armies – צבאתם  tsibotham, from צבא  tsaba, to assemble, meet together, in an orderly or regulated manner, and hence to war, to act together as troops in battle; whence צבאות  tsebaoth, troops, armies, hosts. It is from this that the Divine Being calls himself יהוה צבאות  Yehovah tsebaoth, the Lord Of Hosts or armies, because the Israelites were brought out of Egypt under his direction, marshalled and ordered by himself, guided by his wisdom, supported by his providence, and protected by his might. This is the true and simple reason why God is so frequently styled in Scripture the Lord of hosts; for the Lord did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their Armies.

Yahshua is YHWH tsevaot

Jos 5:14  And He said, No, for I now come as the Commander of the army of YHWH. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped. And he said to Him, What does my Lord speak to His slave?
Isa 55:4  Behold, I gave Him a Witness to peoples, a Leader and Commander of peoples.

Rev 19:11  And I saw Heaven being opened. And, behold! A white horse, and He sitting on it having been called Faithful and True. And He judges and wars in righteousness.
Rev 19:12  And His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head many diadems, having a name that had been written, which no one knows except Himself;
Rev 19:13  and having been clothed in a garment which had been dipped in blood. And His name is called The Word of God.
Rev 19:14  And the armies in Heaven followed Him on white horses, being dressed in fine linen, white and pure.

The Camp of Yisrael

Num 2:2  The sons of Israel shall encamp by their fathers’ house, every man with his own standard, according to the standards. They shall encamp around the tabernacle of the congregation, afar off.
Num 2:3  And those who encamp on the east side, toward the sunrising, are of the standard of Judah’s camp,
according to their armies, the ruler of the sons of Judah being Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

Num 2:9  All numbered of the camp of Judah were a hundred and eighty six thousand and four hundred, by their armies. They shall set forth first.
Num 2:10  On the south side shall be the standard of the camp of Reuben,
according to their armies; the ruler of the sons of Reuben being Elizur the son of Shedeur.
Num 2:18  On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim,
according to their armies; the ruler of the sons of Ephraim being Elishama the son of Ammihud.
Num 2:25  On the north side shall be the standard of the camp of Dan, according to their armies; the ruler of the sons of Dan being Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.

The Camp of Yisrael was divided up as the 12 constellations

Standards of the Tribes

According to rabbinical tradition, the standard of Judah bore the figure of a lion, that of Reuben the likeness of a man, or of a man’s head, that of Ephraim the figure of an ox, and that of Dan the figure of an eagle; so that the four living creatures united in the cherubic forms described by Ezekiel were represented upon these four standards” (Keil and Delitzsch, Commentary on the Pentateuch, III, 17). A variant of this tradition gives as the standard of Reuben, “unstable as water” (Gen_49:4 the King James Version), a Man and a River, and of Dan, “Dan shall be a serpent in the way” (Gen_49:17), an Eagle and a Serpent. These four forms are also found in the constellations in the four quarters of the heavens. Aquarius, the man with a stream of water, and Leo were the original zodiacal constellations of the two solstices, Taurus was that of the spring equinox, and Aquila and Serpens were close to the autumnal equinox, the latter being actually upon the colure.

4 Living Creatures

Surrounding the throne of Elohim are the 4 living creatures which correspond to the 4 cardinal points of the zodiac and to the camp of Yisrael.

Eze 1:10  And the likeness of their faces: the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side to the four of them; and the face of an ox on the left to the four of them, and the face of an eagle to the four of them.

Rev 4:2  And at once I became in spirit. And, behold, a throne was set in Heaven, and One sitting on the throne.
Rev 4:3  And the One sitting was in appearance like a jasper stone, and a sardius; and a rainbow was around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.
Rev 4:4  And around the throne I saw twenty four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty four elders sitting, having been clothed in white garments. And they had golden crowns on their heads.
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;
Rev 4:6  and a glassy sea before the throne, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne and around the throne were four living creatures, full of eyes before and behind.
Rev 4:7  And the first living creature was like a lion; and the second living creature like a calf; and the third living creature having a face like a man; and the fourth living creature like an eagle flying.
Rev 4:8  And the four living creatures each one had six wings around, and within being full of eyes. And they had no rest day and night, saying, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,” the One who was, and is, and is coming!
Isa. 6:3
Rev 4:9  And whenever the living creatures shall give glory and honor and thanks to the One sitting on the throne, to the One living to the ages of the ages,
Rev 4:10  the twenty four elders fall down before Him sitting on the throne; and they will worship the One living to the ages of the ages, and will throw their crowns before the throne, saying,
Rev 4:11  Lord, You are worthy to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because You created all things, and through Your will they exist and were created.

Gospel/Word in the Heavens

Gen 1:14  And God said, Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.

The signs of the heavens are a mark/reminder of the covenant with His people.

Jer 33:25  So says YHWH, If My covenant is not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of the heavens and earth,
Jer 33:26  then I also will reject the seed of Jacob, and My servant David, not to take of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For I will bring back their captivity and have pity on them.

It is YHWH that created the mazzaroth/constellations

Job 26:13  By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
Job 38:31  Can you bind the bands of the Pleiades, or loosen the cords of Orion?
Job 38:32 
Can you bring out the constellations in their season; or can you guide the Bear with its sons?
Job 38:33  Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

He has numbered & named the stars

Isa 40:26  Lift up your eyes on high and look: Who has created these? Who brings out their host by number? By greatness of vigor, and might of power, He calls them all by names; not one is lacking.

Psa 147:4  He appoints the number** of the stars; He calls to them all by names.
**The Hebrew word for number here is mispar from the root saphar which means a record/scroll.  Brown Driver Briggs Hebrew dictionary defines ‘mispar’ as a number or tale.  A tale is an account telling a story.  This is what the number of the stars does.  It tells the story of the Gospel.

Rom 10:17  Then faith is of hearing, and hearing through the Word of God.
Rom 10:18  But I say, Did they not hear? Yes, rather, “into all the earth their voice went out, and to the ends of the world their words.”

The constellations tell the story of the gospel through the names of the stars (Isaiah 40:26; Psalm 147:4).  There are 12 constellations and 36 ‘decan’ constellations which further illustrate the meaning of the main mazzaroth.

VIRGO: Seed of the Woman, Desire of nations, Man of humiliation, becomes exalted Shepherd and Harvester.

LIBRA: The scales demand a price to be paid, Cross to endure, the Victim slain, a Crown purchased.

SCORPIO: A Conflict, Serpent’s coils, Struggle with the Enemy, the Evil Vanquisher.

SAGITTARIUS: The double-natured One triumphs as a Warrior, Pleases the Heavens, Builds fires of punishment, Casts down the Dragon.

CAPRICORNUS: Life comes from death, He’s the Arrow of God, Pierced, Springs up again in abundant life.

AQUARIUS: Life-waters from on High, Drinking the heavenly river, Delivering the Good News, Carrying the Cross over the earth.

PISCES: The Redeemer’s People multiplied, Supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on earth, the Bridegroom is exalted.

ARIES: The Lamb is found worthy, the Bride is made ready, Satan is bound, the Breaker triumphs.

TAURUS: The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime Vanquisher, the great Judgment, the ruling Shepherd.

GEMINI: The Marriage of the Lamb, the Enemy is trodden down, the Prince comes in great Glory.

CANCER: The great Bride, the Church and Israel, are brought safely into the kingdom.

LEO: The Lion King is aroused for rending, the Serpent flees, the Bowl of Wrath is upon him, his Carcass is devoured.

As seen above, time is linked to the sun.

The word for hour is related to the sun

This comes from the root ‘שע’ which is a picture of a shepherd watching over his flock.  ‘Sha’ is also the root of the word Yeshua.

This is why the sun god is portrayed with an ‘all seeing eye’ as well as being related to the triangle/pyramid, which is in the same shape as the ancient Hebrew letter dalet, which is the origin of the Greek letter delta.  Dalet has the gematria of 4 which relates to the 4th dimension of time, of which the sun is intimately connected.  Further connecting to the Messiah, the letter dalet means a ‘door.’

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

The word for day is associated with the sun

The word for tomorrow is related to the sun

Another word relating time and the sun is “pa’am”

How does the rhythmic beating of a drum relate to the sun?  The human heartbeat.

At sunrise the sky appears red

This word comes from ‘dam’ meaning blood.

‘Dam’ literally means waters from the door.  As in the living waters that come forth from the Temple, or the living waters of blood that come forth from the heart.  The sun moving through the zodiac is also a picture of this.  Psalm 19 speaks of the sun following the path of the zodiac and coming forth from ‘his canopy’ representing the Temple.  A healthy heart pumps on average 72 times a minute, the sun moves a degree through the ecliptic every 72 years.  It seems that the beating of the human heart corresponds with the movement of the sun through the ecliptic.

http://davidpratt.info/pattern1.htm#p1

The ‘circle’ traced by the earth’s axis around the north ecliptic pole is not smooth but wavy, as the moon’s gravitational pull causes the earth to ‘nod’ about once every 18 years (currently 18.6 years), a movement known as nutation. The circle therefore contains about 1440 waves, since 18 x 1440 = 25,920. Note that the average human heartbeat is equal to 72 beats a minute, and on average we breathe about 18 times a minute. 72 years (= 6+60+6 or 6×12) is said to be the ‘ideal’ lifespan of a human being, during which time the sun moves through one degree of the zodiac in the precessional cycle. A human breathes 72 times in 4 minutes, the time required for the earth to turn 1 degree on its axis. In 24 hours (86,400 seconds) we breathe 18 x 1440 = 25,920 times, equal to the number of years in the precessional cycle.

According to the National Geographic’s ‘Incredible Human Machine’ it takes 72 muscles for man to speak.  The Hebrew word for time, עת, means to see the mark.  What is the mark?  It is when the sun rises directly east (qedem ‘sun of blood’) at the time of the tequphah which literally means the ‘sun speaks.’

According to Ecclesiastes 1:5-6, the sun moves upon the wind/ruach again linking to the blood which flows through the human body and the living waters which flow forth from the throne of Elohim.

Blood/DNA is further linked to the sun through the equinoxes (tequphot).  The word for ‘equinox’ in Hebrew is tequphah.  It literally means the mark of the sun.  At the Spring tequfah the sun is at 23 degrees in the Tropic of Cancer.  At the Autumn tequfah the sun is at 23 degrees in the Tropic of Capricorn.  23 +23 = 46.  46 is the number of chromosomes in the human body that stores our DNA.  The chromosome is also in the shape of a cross/tav.

The path of the sun through the zodiac comes from the following Hebrew word:

According to the Revelation 22:1-2, the river of life that comes forth from the throne of Elohim, is linked to 12 fruits of the tree of life.

The word for the constellations/zodiac in Hebrew is ‘mazzaroth’ which traces back to the Hebrew word nazar.

What was on the crown of the High Priest?  The sacred name of YHWH (Exodus 29:6; 39:30)  According to Josephus (Wars of the Jews Book 5 Chapter 5 Section 7) the sacred name consisted of 4 vowels which are pronounced with our breath.  The Hebrew word for ‘name,’ is ‘shem’ which means breath/wind.  It is the root for the word ‘shamayim’ which means heaven.  ‘Shem’ is also the root of the word ‘shemesh’ which means the sun.  Every breath we take we are proclaiming His Name.  Each breath we take brings oxygen into our lungs which brings life to our blood and to our cells.

The Temple & the Tequfah

…it is stated in Jack Finegan’s handbook of biblical chronology that when Solomon built the temple of Yahweh at Jerusalem that it was made specifically so that the sun would shine directly through the Eastern Gate on both the vernal and autumn equinoxes so that they could never get the calendar and Holy days incorrect.

http://gurdjieffdominican.com/vernal_Equinox_07.htm

“The most significant ancient religious structure for the Jewish people (and later Christians as well), was Solomon’s temple at Jerusalem, oriented to the Equinox sunrise. Each Spring Equinox, at the time of the ancient agricultural festival of sowing, sunlight was allowed to enter the length of an open passage from the doorway of the temple over the high altar and into the Holy of Holies. It is noted that, “There is evidence … that the entrance of the sunlight on the morning of the Spring Equinox formed part of the ceremonial. The priest being in the Holy Place, the worshippers outside, with their backs to the sun, could see the high priest by the sunlight reflected from the jewels of his garment”.

The Eastern orientation of the Temple is further seen in the Holy Scriptures where Israel had turned their backs on the Temple and faced the East. This would mean that the Temple was facing East as well.

Eze 8:16 And he brought me into the inner court of the house of YHWH. And, behold, at the opening of the temple of YHWH, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty five men with their backs to the temple of YHWH, and their faces eastward. And they bowed themselves eastward to the sun.

Kenneth F. Doig, New Testament Chronology,

“Many of these legal documents include the required Egyptian civil year date. Double-dated documents including the Hebrew dates of the Elephantine Jews cover the period 471 to 402 BCE. This included evening to evening days and a New Year beginning in Nisan (Aviv) only after the Vernal Equinox. Almost all of the datable documents can be referred back to a Nisan (Aviv) beginning only after the Vernal Equinox each year.”

The Ancients understood the tekufah and the 365 day year.

Rabbi Adam Chalom – http://www.kolhadash.com

“tekufat Nisan and Tishrei [the “turning” of these two months], the sun rises and sets exactly in the middle of East and West – we would say, on the equinox. In fact, our terminology differentiates between solstice (longest or shortest day) and equinox (equal day and night), while the Talmud calls each event a tekufat in its particular month. And it defines the space between them as “91 days and 7.5 hours.” And if you do the math through 4 seasons, you reach 365 days and 6 hours, or the solar year under the Julian calendar (365 ¼ days, made even by a leap year every 4). We know today that the actual solar year is 365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_year), which is why in our Gregorian calendar there are exceptions to leap years for years divisible by 100 or 400, but not bad on the Talmud’s part!”

ENOCH lived 365 years and walked with Elohim

Gen 5:23  And all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty five years.

Gen 5:24  And Enoch walked with God. Then he was not, for God took him.

As discussed previously, the word for mark is the Hebrew word אות, which has the meaning of an ox plowing towards a mark.  Being a disciple is linked with this meaning, as the Hebrew word for disciple (lamad) has the meaning of a younger ox being yoked to an older one.  The Biblical calendar and feasts/sabbaths were designed to keep man walking in the same path, in the footsteps of the Messiah (1John 2:6).  It is interesting to note as well that the movement of the heavenly bodies were made as signs (אות) as well.  It is no surprise then that Enoch, who is the first man who is described as walking with the Most High, would live 365 years, corresponding with the time it takes the earth to make one revolution (tekufah) around the sun.

Gen 5:24  And Enoch walked with God. Then he was not, for God took him.
The Hebrew word for ‘took’ here is ‘laqach.’  As seen in this study, this word is in relation to marriage and the ‘rapture,’ the wedding supper.
The book of Hebrews describes this ‘taking’ of Enoch as a ‘Translation’

Heb 11:5  By faith “Enoch” was translated so as not to see death, and “was not found, because God translated him.” For before his translation, he had obtained witness to have been pleasing to God.

This word for translation (metatithēmi) is only used one other time in Scripture.

Col 1:13  who delivered us out of the authority of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
Col 1:14  in whom we have redemption through His blood, the remission of sins;
Col 1:15  who is the image of the invisible God, the First-born of all creation.

Noach also walked with Elohim and was found righteous (Genesis 7:1).  He was perfect in his generations.

Gen 6:9  These are the generations of Noah. Noah, a righteous man, had been perfected among his family (KJV generations). Noah walked with God.
The English word generation is related to genetics but this is not the true meaning of this verse.  Noah was not saved because of his DNA, this is the deception of the end.  Salvation via genetics.  The Hebrew word for generations/family above is דר (‘dor’) which means a revolution/cycle which is in perfect relation to the current section on the calendar and cycles of righteousness being linked to walking with Elohim.

Gen 7:1  And YHWH said to Noah, You and all your house come into the ark, for I have seen you righteous before Me in this generation.

Righteousness is only from HIM (Isaiah 54:17) the 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.

As discussed in previous studies in greater length, the BRANCH is Messiah who is also the root of the Olive tree.

Isa 45:25  In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified(tsadaq – righteous), and shall glory.

Isa 60:21  And your people shall all be righteous; they shall possess the earth forever, a branch of My planting, a work of My hands, to beautify Myself.

Rom 11:26  and so all Israel will be saved, even as it has been written, “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.
Rom 11:27  And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.”Isa. 59:20, 21

Fruit of the Spirit

Eph 5:6  Let no one deceive you with empty words, for through these things the wrath of God comes on the sons of disobedience.
Eph 5:7  Then do not become partakers with them;
Eph 5:8  for you then were darkness, but are now light click here in the Lord; walk as children of light.
Eph 5:9  For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truthclick here

Eph 5:10  proving what is pleasing to the Lord.
Php 1:9  And this I pray, that your love may yet abound more and more in full knowledge and all perception,
Php 1:10  for you to distinguish the things that differ, that you may be sincere and without blame for the day of Christ,
Php 1:11  being filled with
fruits of righteousness through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.


1Co 1:30  But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom,
and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Phi 3:9  And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

1Jn 2:1  My little children, I write these things to you so that you do not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

His body is clothed in garments of righteousness

Isa 61:10  I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation(yeshua), he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Rom 13:14  But
put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
Gal 3:27  For
as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Psa 71:15  My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness and Your salvation (yeshua) all the day; for I do not know the numbers.
Psa 71:16  I will come in the strength of the Lord YHWH; I will speak of Your righteousness, of Yours alone.

Rom 10:4  For Christ is the end {goal} of Law for righteousness to everyone that believes.

1Jn 2:29  If you know that He is righteous, know that everyone doing righteousness has been generated from Him.

Eph 4:24  and to put on the new man, which according to God was created in righteousness and true holiness.
Eph 4:25  Therefore, putting off the false, “speak truth each with his neighbor,” because we are members of one another.
Zech. 8:16

There are none righteous without MessiahYahshua
Rom 3:10  according as it has been written, “There is not a righteous one, not even one!”

Php 3:9  and be found in Him; not having my own righteousness of Law, but through the faith of Christ, having the righteousness of God on faith,
Php 3:10  to know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, having been conformed to His death,
Php 3:11  if somehow I may attain to a resurrection out of the dead.

Rom 5:19  For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were constituted sinners, so also through the obedience of the One the many shall be constituted righteous.

1Pe 2:24  who “Himself carried up in His body our sins” onto the tree; that dying to sins, we might live to righteousness, of whom “by His wound you were healed.”
1Pe 2:25  For you were “as sheep going astray,” but now you turned back to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
Isa. 53:4-6

WE ARE MADE RIGHTEOUS IN HIM
2Co 5:21  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Rev 7:13  And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
Rev 7:14  And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have w
ashed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev 19:7  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
Rev 19:8  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white:
for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

HOW DO WE MAKE OURSELVES READY?
Eph 5:26  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27  That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

We are sanctified by the truth
Joh 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Being clean and sanctified = being made righteous
1Co 6:11  And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified click here, but ye are justified (tsadaq) in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Tit 2:13  Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Tit 2:14  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people*, zealous of good works.

*His priesthood, clothed in the garments of Yeshua/His righteousness

Psa 132:16  And I will clothe her priests with salvation; and her saints shall surely shout.

His Body/Bride

Isa 61:10  I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation (yeshua), he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Rom 13:14  But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Isa 60:21  And your people shall all be righteous; they shall possess the earth forever, a branch of My planting, a work of My hands, to beautify Myself.

Justification = Righteousness
Isa 45:24  He shall say, Only in YHWH do I have righteousness (tsedeqah) and strength; to Him he comes; and they are ashamed, all who are angry with Him.
Isa 45:25  In YHWH all of the seed of Israel shall be justified (tsadaq), and shall glory.

We are justified through Messiah Yahshua by His grace.
Tit 3:7  that being
justified by His grace, we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Only through Messiah

We can’t be justified/made righteous by our obedience of Torah.  All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of Elohim.  It is only through the forgiveness through Messiah that we can be made justified before Adonai YHWH.  The Torah is righteousness, not our attempts to keep it.  It is only when Messiah Yahshua (the living Torah) lives through us that we can be righteous for we then become living epistles in His image.

Act 13:38  Then let it be known to you, men, brothers, that through this One remission of sin is announced to you.
Act 13:39  And everyone believing in this One is justified from all things which you could not be justified by the Law of Moses.

Gal 5:4  you whoever are justified by Law, you were severed from Christ; you fell from grace.
Gal 5:5  For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness out of faith.
Gal 2:16  knowing that a man is not justified by works of Law, but that it is through faith in Jesus Christ (we also believed into Christ Jesus, that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of Law, because all flesh will not be justified by works of Law).
Psa. 123:2
1Co 6:11  And some of you were these things, but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.
Rom 8:28  But we know that to the ones loving God all things work together for good, to those being called according to purpose;
Rom 8:29  because whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, for Him to be the First-born among many brothers.
Rom 8:30  But whom He predestinated, these He also called; and
whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
Rom 5:9  Much more then, being justified now by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath through Him.
Rom 3:19  But we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those within the Law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world be under judgment to God.
Rom 3:20  Because by works of Law not one of all flesh will be justified before Him, for through Law is full knowledge of sin.
Psa. 143:2
Rom 3:21  But now a righteousness of God has been revealed apart from Law, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,
Rom 3:22  even the righteousness of God through faith of Jesus Christ toward all and upon all those believing; for there is no difference,
Rom 3:23  for all sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Rom 3:24  being
justified freely by His grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus,
Rom 3:25  whom God set forth as a propitiation through faith in His blood, as a demonstration of His righteousness through the passing over of the sins that had taken place before, in the forbearance of God,
Rom 3:26  for a demonstration of His righteousness in the present time, for His being just and
justifying the one that is of the faith of Jesus.
Rom 3:27  Then where is the boasting? It was excluded. Through what law? Of works? No, but through a Law of faith.
Rom 3:28  Then
we conclude a man to be justified by faith without works of Law.
Rom 3:29  Or is He the God of Jews only, and not also of the nations? Yes, of the nations also,
Rom 3:30  since it is one God who will justify circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
Rom 3:31 
Then is the Law annulled through faith? Let it not be! But we establish Law.
Rom 2:13  For not the hearers of the Law are just with God, but
the doers of the Law shall be justified.

It is through our works that we show our faith in Messiah
Jas 2:21  Was not our father Abraham justified by works offering up his son Isaac on the altar?
Gen. 22:9
Jas 2:22  You see that faith worked with his works; and out of the works the faith was made perfected.
Jas 2:23  And the Scripture was fulfilled, saying, “And Abraham believed God, and it was counted for righteousness to him;” and he was called, Friend of God.
Gen. 15:6; Isa. 41:8
Jas 2:24  You see, then, that a man is justified out of works, and not out of faith only.
Jas 2:25  But in the same way Rahab the harlot was also justified out of works, having received the messengers, and sending them out by another way.

The wicked oppose righteousness
Act 13:10  he said, O son of the devil, full of all guile and of all cunning, hostile to all righteousness, will you not stop perverting the right ways of the Lord?

Those who oppose righteousness are sons of the devil. Messiah=righteousness.  Torah=righteousness.
1Jn 3:10  By this the children of God and the children of the devil are revealed: Everyone not practicing righteousness is not of God; also the one not loving his brother.

the Judgment
Act 17:31  because He set a day in which “He is going to judge the habitable world in righteousness,” by a Man whom He appointed; having given proof to all by raising Him from the dead. Psa. 9:8

Judged by the Word…Righteousness

Joh 12:48  The one who rejects Me and does not receive My Words has that judging him: the Word which I spoke, that will judge him in the last Day.

The subject of righteousness has been discussed in some length because it is relative to the calendar/feast cycle.  Walking with Messiah is Biblically defined as walking in cycles of righteousness.

Psa 23:3  He restores my soul; He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

2 Paths, 2 Women.

Pro 2:1  My son, if you will receive my words, and treasure up my commandments with you,
Pro 2:2  so that you attend to wisdom, you shall extend your heart to understanding.
Pro 2:3  For if you cry for discernment, lifting up your voice for understanding;
Pro 2:4  if you seek her as silver, and search for her as hidden treasures,
Pro 2:5  then you shall understand the fear of YHWH and find knowledge of God. {This is speaking of Messiah – Ephesians 3:19}
Pro 2:6  For YHWH gives wisdom; out of His mouth are knowledge and understanding.
Pro 2:7  He lays up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to the ones who walk in integrity,
Pro 2:8  to guard the paths (orach) of judgment, and He protects the way (derekh) of His saints.
Pro 2:9  Then you shall understand righteousness and judgment and honesty, yea, every good path (ma’gal).

Pro 2:10  When wisdom enters into your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
Pro 2:11  discretion shall keep you, understanding shall watch over you,
Pro 2:12  to deliver you from the evil way, from the man who speaks perverse things,
Pro 2:13  those who leave the paths (orach) of uprightness (yosher – this is linked to righteousness mentioned aboveclick here) to walk in the ways of darkness,
Pro 2:14  who rejoice to do evil, they delight in the perversities of the wicked,
Pro 2:15  whose paths (orach) are crooked who are devious* (turn to right or left – Deuteronomy 5:32; Joshua 1:7) in their tracks (ma’gal);

*The word here is ‘luz’ which is the same word used for the name of the place where Jacob saw the ladder ascending into heaven.  The place he named Bethel.  As discussed in previous studies, Rabbinic sources describe Luz as the human backbone which connects to the concept of the Kundalini spirit and the serpent rising up the spine to open up the ’3rd eye of enlightenement.’  Throughout this series of studies it has also been shown that Kundalini is linked to the tree of knowledge.  Here we see the path of the wicked which leads to the mark of the beast.
Pro 2:16  these will deliver you from the strange woman, from the foreigner who flatters with her words,
Pro 2:17  who forsakes the guide (aluph – speaking of Teacher guiding a disciple) of her youth and forgets the covenant of her God. (This harlot is in reference to false Israelclick here Ezekiel 16:59-60; Malachi 2:14-16)
Pro 2:18  For her house leads down to death, and her tracks (ma’gal) to the departed spirits (rephaim).
Pro 2:19  All going in to her do not return, nor do they reach the ways (orach) of life.
Pro 2:20  Then you may walk in the ways (derekh)of the good and keep the ways (orach) of the righteous.
Pro 2:21  For the upright (straight) shall live in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.
Pro 2:22  But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

Psa 17:4  As to the doings of men, by the Words of Your lips I keep from the paths (orach) of the violent.

ארח comes from the root רח, which means a prescribed path.  This is the word used in reference to the movement of the sun, moon, and stars from East to West each day.

Psa 17:5  My steps have kept in Your tracks (ma’gal) so that my strides (pa’am) have not slipped (mat).

The word for slip/slide comes from the Hebrew word מט which has the meaning of a green branch which is flexible.  Yokes were taken from green branches, shaped and then left to dry.  When we slip, or our branches begin to bend in the wrong direction, YHWH comes to our rescue and supports us before we break off of the vine (Messiah) and fall to the ground to dry out, wither, die and then be cast into the fire.  The green branch remains alive because it is connected to its source and contains water.  If we bend too far with the world and compromise too much, we run the risk of being broken altogether and falling from our source of life.

Walking in His paths, that we be not bent/conformed to this world (this is referring to the feasts and the cycles of righteousness that are given to us by the Most High so that we learn to walk in His ways so that it becomes second nature to us.  When we get in ruts of righteousness, it is hard for us to leave those tracks/paths for the ways of the world.  If we are walking/yoked with the Messiah, it will be a painful experience if we begin to conform to the world (bend/slip) because we are going to be quickly goaded(corrected) by our Master.  It is better for us to experience chastisement quickly so that we are corrected and walk in His ways than to be chastised with everlasting fire.

Interestingly, the word צמד ‘tsamad’ also comes from the root מט ‘mot.’  ‘Tsamad’ means to join together, to yoke together.  This is the word used when Yisrael joined (tsamad) Ba’al Peor and ate sacrifices of the dead (Numbers 25).  Here we see Yisrael, due to their hard hearts, rebelling against being yoke with YHWH and keeping of His Torah (feasts, paths) to be yoked with a false god and the false feasts associated with worship of that god.

The Pythagorean Triangle pg 235-236
“It is the opinion of Mr. Faber, whose learning and extensive researches into the hidden mysteries of antiquity are entitled to universal respect, that in the Book of Revelation ‘an important prophecy is most curiously and artfully veiled under the very language and imagery of the Orgies.  To the sea-born Great Father was ascribed a threefold state:  he lived, he died, and he revived;  these changes of condition were duly exhibited in the mysteries.  To the sea-born wild beast is similarly ascribed a threefold state:  he lives, he dies, and he revives.  While dead, he lies floating on the mighty ocean, just like Horus, or Osiris, Siva or Vishnu; when he revives, again like those kindred deities, he emerges from the waves; andwhether dead or alive, he bears seven heads and ten horns, corresponding in number with the seven art-preserved Rishis, and the ten aboriginal patriarchs.  Nor is this all; as the worshippers of the Great Father bore his special mark or stigma, and were distinguished by his name, so the worshippers of the maritime beast equally bear his mark, and are equally designated by his appellation.’ (From Fab. Pag. Idol, vol iii. pg 643.)

If this be true, and the arguments adduced in its support appear sound and conclusive, the above mystical ceremony of sealing the redeemed may be taken from the custom of marking the aspirant with a permanent badge of initiation, which may be an indelible token of his acceptance.  This mark or badge in India and Egypt was the Tautic Crossclick here; and it still appears amongst the hieroglyphics of the Brahmins, and profusely on the monuments of Egypt, where most of the deities bear it conspicuously about their persons.  In the Dionysiaca, or the mysteries of Bacchus, the mark was a leaf of the ivy or vineclick here.  There is  a pointed reference to it in the divine command given to Moses in the wilderness, when many of the Israelites had been initiated into the disgusting mysteries of Baalpeor:  ‘Take all the heads of the people and hang them up;’  referring to the princes of the tribes, who were directed to hang all those who had been thus initiated.  Boothroyd translates the original thus: ‘Take all the heads of the people, and let them slay those men who have worn the badges of Baal-peor.”

Num 25:1  And Israel lived in Shittim. And the people began to fornicate with the daughters of Moab.
Num 25:2  And they called the people to the sacrifices of their gods. And the people ate and bowed themselves to their gods.
Num 25:3  And Israel was joined* to Baal-peor, and the anger of YHWH burned against Israel.
Num 25:4  And YHWH said to Moses, Take all the leaders of the people and hang them up to Jehovah before the sun, that the fierce anger of YHWH may be turned away from Israel.
Num 25:5  And Moses said to the judges of Israel, Each one of you kill his men, those who joined to Baal-peor. (Baal = Saturnclick here)

*the word translated as ‘joined’ in verse 3 is from the Hebrew ‘tsamad’ which means a bracelet, used in specific to a man and woman in marriage (Genesis 24:22; Ezekiel 16:11).  It also refers to the yoke.  We can be yoked to Messiah, or yoked to the antichrist.  Tsamad also is pictured by the frame of a building being fit together to form a house.  We can partake of the Wedding supper of the Lamb, or the feast of the beast.  We can members of the body of Messiah, or the body of antichrist.  It is our choice.

The counterfeit calendar

The beast counterfeits the calendar

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak words against the Most High, and he shall wear out the saints of the Most High. And he intends to change times and law. And they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and one half time.

YHWH hates counterfeit feasts

Isa 1:10  Hear the Word of YHWH, rulers of Sodom. Listen to the Law of our God, people of Gomorrah.
Isa 1:11  What good to Me are your many sacrifices, says YHWH? I am sated with burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fattened cattle, and the blood of bulls; nor do I delight in the blood of lambs and he goats.
Isa 1:12  When you come to see My face, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts?
Isa 1:13  Do not add to bringing vain sacrifice; its incense is an abomination to Me. I cannot endure the new moon and sabbath, the going to meeting, and the evil assembly.
Isa 1:14  My soul hates your new moons and your appointed feasts. They are a burden to Me. I am weary of bearing them.
Isa 1:15  And when you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you. Yea, when you multiply prayer, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood.
Isa 1:16  Wash yourselves, purify yourselves. Put away the evil of your doings from My sight; stop doing evil.
Isa 1:17  Learn to do good, seek justice, straighten the oppressor, judge the orphan, strive for the widow.
Isa 1:18  Come now and let us reason together, says YHWH: Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as the crimson, they shall be like wool.

Corruption of the Biblical calendar

Secret Teachings of All Ages 151
“Albert Churchward, in The Signs and Symbols of Primordial Man, sums up the influence of the zodiac upon religious symbolism in the following words: “The division here [is] in twelve parts, the twelve signs of the Zodiac, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve gates of heaven mentioned in Revelation, and twelve entrances or portals to be passed through in the Great Pyramid, before finally reaching the highest degree, and twelve Apostles in the Christian doctrines, and the twelve original and perfect points in Masonry.”
The ancients believed that the theory of man’s being made in the image of God was to be understood literally. They maintained that the universe was a great organism not unlike the human body, and that every phase and function of the Universal Body had a correspondence in man. The most precious Key to Wisdom that the priests communicated to the new initiates was what they termed the law of analogy. Therefore, to the ancients, the study of the stars was a sacred science, for they saw in the movements of the celestial bodies the ever-present activity of the Infinite Father.”

As seen above, the movement of the sun through the skies is like the figure eight.  This has been corrupted into the image of the oroboros mentioned at the beginning of this study.

http://www.crystalinks.com/ouroboros.html

Papyrus of Dama Heroub, Egypt, 21st Dynasty

“The zodiac as a tail-eating snake (Ouroboros) symbolizes the eternity of Time and the boundary of the universe. Below it, the double lion Routi (‘Yesterday and Tomorrow’), the agency of resurrection, supporting the newborn Sun God.”

The Milky Way

“The Milky Way Galaxy is the inspiration for the symbol of the Ouroboros. Myth refers to a serpent of light residing in the heavens. The Milky Way is this serpent, and viewed at galactic central point near Sagittarius, this serpent eats its own tail.”

The Milky Way is related to the path of the sun through the mazzaroth mentioned above.

This word ‘mazzalah’ is only used one time in Scripture and brings forth some interesting connections to the current study.  It is found in 2 Kings 23:5 where the account of Josiah destroying the corrupted religion of Israel is found.  The Torah of YHWH had been found and when Josiah saw how far Israel had went astray he cut a covenant with YHWH in repentance to turn back to Him and follow His Word.

2Ki 23:4  And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring out from the temple of YHWH all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for Asherah, and for all the host of the heavens. And he burned them at the outside of Jerusalem, in the fields of Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel.
2Ki 23:5  And he caused to cease the idolatrous priests (Kemarim) whom the kings of Judah had given place to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places around Jerusalem, and those burning incense to Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to constellations (mazzalah), and to all the host of the heavens.
2Ki 23:6  And he brought out the sacred pole (asherah) from the house of YHWH to the outside of Jerusalem, to the torrent Kidron, and burned it at the torrent Kidron, and ground it to powder, and threw the powder of it on the graves of the sons of the people. {Notice the thematic connections to the Golden calf incident in the wilderness…the mixture of the worship of YHWH with the mystery religions of the heathen}

The ‘sacred pole’ mentioned above brings forth another connection to the oroboros which is the symbol of the yin and yang.

Yin Yang – Oroboros connection

“In some versions of the Ouroboros, the body is half light and half dark, alluding in this way to the successive counterbalancing of opposing principles as illustrated in the Chinese Yin-Yang symbol for instance.”

The Yin Yang is linked to the calendar through the gnomen which can be used to find the tequfot.

The first month of the year is known as Abib

Exo 23:15 You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I have commanded you, at the set time of the month of Abib. For in it you came out from Egypt, and they shall not appear before Me empty.

Deu 16:1 Observe the month Abib, and perform the Passover to YHWH your God. For in the month of Abib YHWH your God brought you out of Egypt by night.

Here we see that abib means something new, which continues the next generation.

Aviv comes from root av:

Here again we see that the word aviv is tracing back to something new or fresh and something that continues. This is connected to the calendar in that Spring is the new/fresh start of the year, continuing the cycle of the years anew. Just as the word indicates. Interesting, the pictograph means a pole. In order to find the equinoxes in ancient times a pole was used.

Pages 73-74 of Pannekoek state, “The Babylonians, according to Greek testimony, used a vertical pole for measuring shadow length; thus they could determine the moments of solstice and, as medium points between the solstices, the moments of vernal and autumnal equinoxes.”

http://www.astro.uu.nl/~strous/AA/en/antwoorden/zonpositie.html

At the meridian transit of the Sun,

1. the Sun is due north or due south (depending on your location), so the shadow of a vertical pole points straight south or north. If you mark a line from the bottom of the pole that goes straight north or south, then the meridian transit occurs when the shadow of the pole falls on that line.
2. the Sun is highest in the sky, so a vertical pole casts the shortest shadow. When the shadow is shortest, then the meridian transit is there.

Yin Yang – Obelisk – As above, so below

In Cabala, the Sacred Tree of the Sephiroth is claimed to represent the Cosmos, including God (male), his Shekinah (Anna, the Goddess/female), and the Kingdom of Zion. As shown here, the Foundation of all things is the male genitals, or the sex generative process. (Zolar’s Encyclopedia of Ancient and Forbidden Knowledge, Arco Publishing, 1984

Washington Monument

The 4 sides of the Washington Monument are aligned with the cardinal directions (i.e., east, west, north, and south).  To the east is the Capitol, to the west is the Lincoln Memorial, to the south is the Jefferson Memorial and to the north is the White House.

At the ground level each side of the monument measures 55.5 feet long, which is equal to 666 inches. The height of the obelisk is 555.5 feet, which is equal to 6,666 inches.

Washington – Baphomet

Statue of Washington in the Smithsonian Museum of American History

Statue of Washington in the Smithsonian Museum of American History

Notice that Washington is posing like Baphomet mentioned above who represents ‘as above, so below.’

Apotheosis of Washington

Apotheosis (man becoming a god) of George Washington painted on the ceiling of the Capitol Rotunda

Apotheosis (man becoming a god) of George Washington painted on the ceiling of the Capitol Rotunda

Notice the pentagrams surrounding the image and the hand gesture that Washington is making over a book, indicating that he is becoming ‘the Word.’  There are 72 pentagrams surrounding Washington, 72 being one of the most significant numbers in the occult and as seen above links to the ‘tetractys,’ the sacred Name of YHWH and as mentioned above the ecliptic of the sun.

72 is also associated with the pentagram as a 360 degree circle divided into 5 gives 72 degrees each.

In his left hand he is holding a sword, the flaming sword of Shechinah.  This is a counterfeit of Messiah who returns to earth with a sharp two edged sword (Revelation 19:13-15)

Inside the Washington monument, above the elevator, is found the following picture.

Above the bust of Washington is the winged disc with two serpents surrounding a globe with the hexagram symbol.

The winged disc is used in many ancient cultures and has passed down through Masonry and Rosicrucianism.

The Rosicrucians and Their Teachings – Clymer Swinburne pg 112
“The Winged Globe is pre-eminently a Rosicrucian symbol, although the Illuminati may lay claim to it, and it may be admitted that it is of Egyptian origin. The Winged Globe is the symbol of the perfected soul making its flight back to the source of its creation in the Elysian fields beyond.”

It is a symbol that is meant to represent the Messiah.

Mal 4:2  But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall rise up, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall.

“The symbols of the Rose and the Cross are themselves deeply suggestive of Nibiru which was often depicted in the form of a cross by the ancients, as Zecharia Sitchin describes:

“The pictographic sign for the Twelfth Planet, the “Planet of the Crossing”, was a cross. This cuneiform sign, which also meant “Anu” and “divine”, evolved in the Semitic languages to the letter tav, which meant “the sign”.

“This vital observation is often lost during arguments about the nature and timing of this mythical planet and its orbit.

“The earliest symbol of Nibiru was a cross, and this seems inextricably linked to its later Messianic symbolism during the Graeco-Roman era. Nibiru’s red countenance perfectly fits with the ‘Rosy Cross’ symbol used by Freemasons and Rosicrucians, and is connected with esoteric concepts such as the ‘Blazing Star’, the ‘Dark Satellite’…and the ‘Eighth Sphere’ of the Theosophists.

On page 515 Heindel discusses “ancient truths” associated with Christian Rosenkreutz and the ‘Order of the Rosicrucians.’ Heindel says that our Sun is the physical light bringer that travels from east to west but he also says we have an INVISIBLE SUN [THE DARK STAR] that also travels from east to west.

Then on page 502 the Max Heindel states that “Christ Himself symbolizes the Divine Initiate of the Vulcan Period.” And on page 391 Max Heindel discusses “THE STAR” and how “THE BLAZING STAR is ever there to guide HIM.”

From Pages 410 & 413 notice the symbology of the invisible Sun-God (shown below) and how it portrays the classic Egyptian winged-disc. So as you can observe, Heindel’s book also has deep symbolic clues as to the existence of a Dark Star/Nibiru binary system.

The late Father Malachi Martin (an ex-Jesuit Priest) said to a well-known American radio personality, Art Bell, in an interview I personally listened to back in ’97 or ’98.

“…the sign will be in the form of a Red Cross and everyone will see it…”

Tree of Life Connection

Sephirot and Asshur

The oldest versions of the Jewish mysticism have been theorized to extend from Assyrian theology and mysticism. Dr. Simo Parpola, a researcher at the University of Helsinki, has made some suggestive findings on the matter, particularly concerning an analysis of the Sefirot. Noting the general similarity between the Sefirot of the Kabbalah and the Tree of Life of Assyria, he reconstructed what an Assyrian antecendent to the Sepiroth would look like.

He matched the characteristics of En Sof on the nodes of the Sepiroth to the gods of Assyria, and was able to even find textual parallels between these Assyrian gods and the characteristics of god. The Assyrians assigned specific numbers to their gods, similar to how the Sepiroth assigns numbers to its nodes. However, the Assyrians use a sexagesimal number system, whereas the Sepiroth is decimal. With the Assyrian numbers, additional layers of meaning and mystical relevance appear in the Sepiroth. Normally, floating above the Assyrian Tree of Life was the god Assur, this corresponds to En Sof, which is also, via a series of transformations, derived from the Assyrian word Assur.

Relief from the N.W. palace of Ashurnasirpal II (883-859 B.C.) showing anointing of the Tree of Life. A winged god holds what appears to be a pinecone and a pot with the anointing oil. Above the Tree of Life is the royal signet of the god Ashur. The god Ashur is depicted as a man with a bow inside a winged solar disk or as a winged solar disk.

Washington Monument & the Vesica Pisces

The perverse sexual imagery of the Washington Monument is made worse in recent times when the addition of pavement in the form of the vesica pisces was made to intersect the monument.

St. Peter’s Cathedral

The Greatest Secret Finally Told: The Man 666 Identified – John Daniel

“Now in Astrology, the entire remainder of the sky outside of the Zodiacal band was also divided into 36 constellations…Now the numbers 1,6, 12, 36, 111, and 666, were the most sacred in Astrology.  Priests of Sun Worship used the numbers mathematically by the way the stars travel across the sky to predict future events.  They invented magic charts to perform this most popular form of divination. Like the Roulette Wheel, the charts were divided into 36 numbered divisions.  There are 6 columns in both directions, vertically and horizontally, with six squares in each column.  Numbers 1 to 36 are placed inside the entire chart so that any direction you add the columns, they add to 111; and 6 times 111 equals 666.”

“This number 666, which is identified with the 36 room gods of the Zociac, becomes then a sum total and the most ‘sacred’ number of the Sun-God, Horus, and his Pontifex Maximus human counterpart.”

“It was taught in the ancient world that the Supreme Sun-God drives a chariot drawn by the four steeds of Horus, which turned ceaselessly round in a fixed circle.”

“To see another “Sun” symbol of the Occult at the Vatican, one only needs an aerial view of Saint Peter’s court yard, and in the pavement you will notice what is known as a ‘double cross’, or the largest “Sun Wheel” in the world.  Anciently, it was taught that the Supreme Sun god drives a chariot drawn by four steeds that traversed each day in the spaces of the firmament and sank at dusk, extinguishing its fires in the ocean.  The nation of Israel was caught up in this Sun Worship, and during a period of ‘reform’, it is recorded how they put down those “that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven, and took away the houses that the kings of Judah had given to the sun, and burned the chariots of the sun with fire.” (2 Kings 23:5, 11)

“Chariots, and especially the ‘wheels’ of the chariots, were representative of the Sun. The Wheel and its spokes actually became a cross within a circle and the cross, which is one of the most ancient symbols of the Sun.  The circle and the cross within the circle represents the four extreme points of the sun in relation to the earth in its yearly travel around the sun.  Those four points are: the ‘two solstices’ occurring at 21 June, making the longest day during the year and 21 December, making the shortest day of the year–and the ‘two equinoxes’, occurring in the spring, 21 March, and autumn, 21 September, making night and day of the occult, and his Swastika is nothing more than a sun symbol of a cross, with the segments of the circle broken and with right angles made at the ends of the cross.  The Hindu religion, a thousand years before Christ,  had the swastika symbol of the Sun.”

Sun Cross

Wikipedia.org
Combining the cross and the circle, it is the simplest conceivable representation of the union of opposed polarities in the Western world.  It often stood for the sun and for the tree of life.  It may be compared to the yin-yang symbol of the Eastern world.

According to Masonic thought, the swastika is a representation of the ‘Lost Word.’  The Sacred Name of YHWH.

Lessons in Capitular Masonry – The Master’s Word and the Letter G pg 15

“Is it not just possible that the form in which the letter G formerly appeared in the Lodge may have been that of the Swastika, one of the most frequent and sacred of figures in both Eastern and Western Symbolism…The Swastika is composed of four gammas combined and was known among old time craftsmen as the tetragrammaton.”

Here we see a counterfeit of the tekufah of the Biblical calendar.  Tekufah is a mark that points to YHWH.  The adversary takes these equinoxes and solstices and counterfeits them to point to him.

The sun wheel at St. Peter’s basilica is a form of the ‘Eight Wheel Path of Enlightenment’ of the Eastern religions.

The Cup of Destiny -Trevor Ravenscroft pg 123-124

Ravenscroft describes the ‘eight-fold path’ of Buddha as being obtained by six attributes which bring ‘equanimity of the soul’

Notice how the sun wheel, the cross, swastika and hexagram all link together.  This is because they are symbols of the same thing.  The ‘evolution’ of man into godhood.

Secrets in the Fields pg 165
“The Eightfold Path is synonymous with the 8×8 trigrams (64 hexagrams) of the I Ching of the Chinese Taoists.  These are energy combinations of yin and yang energy patterns thought to represent all possible cosmic and human situations.”

The ‘I Ching’ is discussed in more detail below in the section on crop circles.

Feasts of the Beast

Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc., which have been passed down to mankind through the Roman Catholic church, all have their origins in the mystery religions.  It is no surprise then that the symbology and customs of these feasts point to the beast and his mark.

It is not the purpose of this study to go into depth on each of these holidays as this has been done in other studiesclick here. For more details the reader can follow the previous link, for the purpose of this study a short summary of each holiday’s links to the beast will suffice.

Halloween

click here

Halloween comes from ‘all Hallow’s eve.’  Hallow means holy.  The word holy comes from the Hebrew qodesh, which interestingly, can mean holy or profane (as in a cult prostitute).

We can be set apart unto YHWH and serve Him, or we can be set apart unto the adversary and serve him but we can’t do both (1Corinthians 10:22).  ‘Halloween’ was adopted into the Roman Catholic church as the day before ‘All Saints Day.’  The word saint also comes from the above Hebrew word for holy, ‘qodesh.’  This can be applied to men who are set apart unto YHWH, or to angels.  From a study of this holiday it is clear why the Catholic church chose the name ‘All saint’s day/hallow’s eve’ for this festival, it is a syncretism of the old customs with Biblical names.  This holiday is not about dead saints but about angels, more specifically, fallen angels.

Celtic peoples (Britons, Gauls, Scots, Irish). They observed the end of summer with sacrifices to SAMAN (Shamhain). He was “the lord of death and evil spirits”. This marked the beginning of the Celtic New Year.
Depending on your source material, the Druid lord of death and evil spirits was called Saman, Samana, Shamhain or Samhain. His “holiday” was called “The Vigil Of Saman” or Samhain (pronounced so-wein). You probably have seen a modern day version of SAMAN without even knowing it. This pagan god was shown as a ghostly, skeleton holding a sickle in his hand. He later came to be known as THE GRIM REAPER…aka Saturnclick here

The Druids – They were occult practitioners, witches of sorts. In the century preceding the birth of Christ, Caesar conquered the Britains and he records very carefully the account of the DRUID PRIESTS (early witches)…”All Gallic nations are much given to superstition…they either offer up men as victims to the gods, or make a vow to sacrifice themselves. The ministers in these offerings are the Druids, and they hold that the wrath of the immortal gods can only be appeased, and man’s life redeemed, by offering up human sacrifice, and it is a part of their national institutions to hold fixed solemnities (Ceremonies) for this purpose.”

Alexander Hislop in his book, The Two Babylons, says, “The god whom the Druids worshipped was Baal, as the blazing Baal-fires show — We know that they offered human sacrifices to their bloody gods. We have evidence that they made `their children pass through the fire to Molech’, and that makes it highly probable that they also offered them in sacrifice; for, from Jeremiah 32:35, compared with Jeremiah 19:5, we find that these two things were parts of one and the same system.” Further, it is to be noted that the “priests of Nimrod or Baal were necessarily required to eat of the human sacrifices; and thus it has come to pass that `Cahna-Bal’, (Cahna is the emphatic form of Cahn which means `a priest’) meaning the priest of Baal, is the established word in our tongue for a devourer of human flesh.” (from The Two Babylons, Hislop. See page 232).

Baal = Saturnclick here

According to Doc Marquis, this phrase ‘trick or treat’ was used by Druid priests on the eve of Samhain when arriving at the homes of their ‘victims’.  If the resident of the house choose treat, the ‘lord of the manor’ would give the druids a member of his household as a human sacrifice offering that night.  The druids would leave a treat, a hallowed out pumpkin filled with human fat and lit it up.  This was to serve as a protection against the demonic forces unleashed that night.  The trick was if the resident did not agree to their terms.  The druids would paint a hexagram on the residents door with human blood to summon demons to this plane of existence to kill someone at that home.
This sounds a lot like Passover and putting the blood of the lamb on the doorpost so that the Angel of Death would pass over your home.  Here we see the blood painted on the door so that death would come to the person’s home.  Yet another perversion of principles set forth in the Torah.  When you study the customs of the heathen this is seen over and over again.  It is also interesting that a hexagramclick here was placed upon the victim’s door as this is a perfect picture of the mark of the beast which is nothing more than a counterfeit of the mark of YHWH.

The symbolism of owls and witches all point back to Lucifer in the form of the Queen of Heaven.  This portrayal of the adversary as a female is best seen in the serpent in the tree of knowledge.  This has been discussed in detail in previous sections of this mark study.  The main point to be seen is that Halloween is a celebration of death to the uninitated but in reality represents ‘life’ to those who know what the mysteries really represent.  This is exactly what the tree of knowledge portrays.  It represents life to the mystery religions but in reality brings death.  The celebration of Halloween is Lucifer’s way of saying that death is overcome by the tree of knowledge, whereas the Scriptures state that death is only overcome by the Messiah.

Purim is linked with the festival of Halloween. Haman was a picture of Hitler who has been discussed in previous studies in connection with the beast and his markclick here.  Hitler was a part of the Thule society which is the foundation of the Skull and Cross Bones of Yale.

Thule society believed in “communication with a hierarchy of Supermen — The Secret Chiefs of the Third Order”.   The quality which make these beings supermen was occultic spirituality. Further, they believed in Madame Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine, which teaches that certain superman had survived the destruction of Atlantis with their higher levels of consciousness intact. These supermen were Aryans.

The Thule Society regularly held occultic seances, during which time they communicated with demons who were either masquerading as a dead person or who were just appearing as their guiding spirits. Dietrich Eckart, Alfred Rosenberg, and Adolf Hitler invoked the Anti-Christ into manifestation at the mediumistic seances of the Thule Group in Munich.” (Ravenscroft, Spear of Destiny, p. 168) Eckert believed he had been told by his guiding spirit he would have the privilege of training the coming Great One, the Anti-Christ. From the beginning of their association, Eckert believed Hitler was Anti-Christ. Therefore, Eckert spared no occultic knowledge, ritual, or perversion in his attempt to fully equip Hitler for the role. Once the training was completed, Hitler believed he was “born anew with that super-personal strength and resolution he would need to fulfill the mandate … ordained for him.” (p. Ravenscroft, p. 93-4)

To the un-initiated these secret societies are obsessed with death, just as Halloween appears to be an obsession with death.  On a deeper level they are actually obsessed with life.  Death to bring life.  This is the theory of evolution.  The death of the weak brings forth a more evolved being.  Sacrifice the weak so that the strong can become stronger and obtain the favor of the ‘gods.’    Ultimately the goal of these secret societies/mystery religion priests is to bring about a utopian society of evolved men known as homo-noeticus (supermen).

Skull & BonesWhy does it say 322 at the bottom of the Skull & Bones symbol?

Gen 3:22  And YHWH God said, Behold! The man has become as one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put forth his hand and also take from the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever,

Also notice that the skull in the above picture has a head wound…

Rev 13:3  And I saw one of its heads, as having been slain to death, and its deadly wound was healed. And all the earth wondered after the beast.

Christmas

click here

The word Christmas originated as a compound meaning ‘Christ’s Mass’. It is derived from the Middle English Christemasse and Old English Cristes mæsse, a phrase first recorded in 1038. “Cristes” is from Greek Christos and “mæsse” is from Latin missa (the holy mass).

Mass- 1909 Catholic dictionary

The Eucharist as a sacrifice is called the Mass, most probably from the dismissal (missa) of the catechumens before the celebration. The Mass is a true proper sacrifice, namely, “the external offering up of a sensible gift, which is destroyed or transformed by an authorized minister in recognition of God’s supreme dominion.”

Hence, Christmas literally means the ‘death/sacrifice of Christ.’  Why does Christmas celebrate the supposed birth of Christ but yet literally means the death of Christ?  Because this holiday traces back to sun worshipclick here where the sun would ‘die’ at the winter solstice and be ‘resurrected’ on the 25th as it began to rise again.

In esoteric mystery thought, the movement of the sun through the 12 signs of the zodiac is spiritually connected to the initiate moving to ‘godhood.’  This is a counterfeit of the Gospel in the starsclick here which speak of Messiah Yahshua.

The Mysteries lead ‘roaring beasts into divinities’ and make them ‘a veritable golden chain of supermen and superwomen connecting heaven and earth.’ (Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 649)

“The entrance to the Lodge (that is to the Cosmos) begins at Capricorn and reaches the center in Cancer…This orientation followed not only the direction of the seasons, but also the direction of the neophyte in his or her search for God.”

“…Porphyry recalls that the ancient philosophers insist that in the heavens are two gates, one of which is the Gate of Cancer, the other the Gate of Capricorn.  Cancer is the gate through which souls descend into earthly birth, while Capricorn is the one through which they ascend in the postmortem return to the spiritual realm.  It is, Porphyry continues, the reason that the Romans celebrate their Saturnalia, when the Sun is in Capricorn, and why during this festivity, the slaves wear sandals of those who are free:

‘the legislator obscurely signified by this ceremony, that, through this gate of heavens, those who are now born slaves will be liberated through the Saturnian festival, and the house attributed to Saturn, that is, Capricorn, when they live again, and return to the fountain of life.’”

The Custom of Christmas trees was passed down to us from the “sacred groves” of the heathen religions.  This is Baal worship, which was a main battleground for Eliyahu.

Rom 11:2  “God did not thrust away His people” whom He foreknew. Psa. 94:14 Or do you not know what the Scripture said in Elijah, how he pleaded with God against Israel, saying,

Rom 11:4  But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to {the image} of Baal.

Why was “the image of” added to the text in Romans 11:4

To Baal (τῇ Βάαλ)
The feminine article is used with the name instead of the masculine (as in Septuagint in this passage). It occurs, however, in the Septuagint with both the masculine and the feminine article. Various reasons are given for the use of the feminine, some supposing an ellipsis, the image of Baal; others that the deity was conceived as bisexual; …it may also be referring to Baal’s female consort Ashtoreth.

Asherah, came to denote the symbol of the goddess. The trunk of the tree was often provided with branches, and assumed the form of the tree of life.

Christmas Trees

Jer 10:1  Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
Jer 10:2  Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
Jer 10:3  For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
Jer 10:4  They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
Jer 10:8  But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities.
Jer 10:9  Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz
(DAN 10:5), the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning men.
Jer 10:11  Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish
from the earth, and from under these heavens.

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.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

Ashtoreth
The moon goddess of the Phoenicians, representing the passive principle in nature, their principal female deity; frequently associated with the name of Baal, the sun-god, their chief male deity (Jdg_10:6; 1Sa_7:4; 1Sa_12:10). These names often occur in the plural (Ashtaroth, Baalim), probably as indicating either different statues or different modifications of the deities. This deity is spoken of as Ashtoreth of the Zidonians. She was the Ishtar of the Accadians and the Astarte of the Greeks (Jer_44:17; 1Ki_11:5, 1Ki_11:33; 2Ki_23:13). There was a temple of this goddess among the Philistines in the time of Saul (1Sa_31:10). Under the name of Ishtar, she was one of the great deities of the Assyrians. The Phoenicians called her Astarte. Solomon introduced the worship of this idol (1Ki_11:33). Jezebel’s 400 priests were probably employed in its service (1Ki_18:19). It was called the “queen of heaven” (Jer_44:25).

John Gill

the star of your god {hexagram/Talisman of Saturn/seal of Solomon/star of David}, 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, the wife of Chronus or Saturn, is said to take and consecrate in Tyre; this they made for themselves, and worshipped as a deity.

Astarte was the wife of Saturn.  Otherwise known as the wife of Nimrod. Please notice in the image above that the hexagram was her symbol as well.  More on this at the bottom of this study.

ISBE (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

In Assyrian asirtu, which appears also under the forms asrātu, esrēti (plural) and asru, had the further signification of “sanctuary.” Originally Asirtu, the wife of Asir, and asirtu, “sanctuary,” seem to have had no connection with one another, but the identity in the pronunciation of the two words caused them to be identified in signification, and as the tree-trunk or cone of stone which symbolized Asherah was regarded as a Beth-el or “house of the deity*,” wherein the goddess was immanent, the word Asirtu, Asherah, came to denote the symbol of the goddess. The trunk of the tree was often provided with branches, and assumed the form of the tree of life*. It was as a trunk, however, that it was forbidden to be erected by the side of “the altar of Yahweh” (Deu_16:21; see Jdg_6:25, Jdg_6:28, Jdg_6:30; 2Ki_23:6). Accordingly the symbol made for Asherah by his mother was “cut down” by Asa (1Ki_15:13). So, too, we hear of Asherim or symbols of the goddess being set up on the high places under the shade of a green tree (Jer_17:2; see 2Ki_17:10). Manasseh introduced one into the temple at Jerusalem (2Ki_21:3, 2Ki_21:7).
*This connection between the Christmas tree the House of God (Bethel) and the tree of Life is important to note.  The Christmas tree is a counterfeit tree of life which is really the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  The tree of life represents the Messiah who is pictured by the menorah.  The tree of knowledge represents the adversary who is pictured by the Christmas tree/Asherah pole.

Exo 23:24  You shall not bow down to their gods, and you shall not serve them. And you shall not do according to their works. But tearing you shall tear them down, and smashing you shall smash their pillars.

*This is the word used in Genesis referring to the stone that Jacob anointed and proclaimed as Bethel.

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 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 {This is a strong reference to the Messiah, which means anointed one.}.
Gen 35:15  And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel{H1008 בּית־אלbeytḣ’el house of God}

Messiah is the image of Elohim
2Co 4:4  in whom the god of this age has blinded the thoughts of the unbelieving, so that the brightness of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God, should not dawn on them.

The congregation of believers are to be the “image” of Messiah
Rom 8:29  because whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, for Him to be the First-born among many brothers.
2Co 3:18  But we all with our face having been unveiled, having beheld the glory of the Lord in a mirror, are being changed into the same image from glory to glory, as from the Lord Spirit.

Here we see that the pillar that Jacob anointed is to be the house of Elohim.  His house are His people (Hebrews 3:6).  His body.  Pictured by the menorah, the tree of Life.  The counterfeit is a pillar/Asherah which is called Bethel.  The antichrist’s house are his people.  His body.  Pictured by the Christmas tree, the tree of knowledge.

YHWH is likened to an evergreen

Hos 14:8  Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.
Son 5:15  His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.

The temple was built from cedars of Lebanon
1Ki 5:5  And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spake unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build an house unto my name.
1Ki 5:6  Now therefore command thou that they hew me cedar trees out of Lebanon; and my servants shall be with thy servants: and unto thee will I give hire for thy servants according to all that thou shalt appoint: for thou knowest that there is not among us any that can skill to hew timber like unto the Sidonians.
Zec 11:1  Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.

Planted by YHWH
Psa 104:16  The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
Isa 60:21  Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. (ISA 43:7)

The people (temple) of YHWH
Psa 92:12  The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Psa 92:13  Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.

Hos 14:6  His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
Hos 14:7  They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.
Hos 14:8  Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.
Son 4:7  Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.
Son 4:8  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.
Son 4:11  Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue; and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.

The “Christmas” tree that comes from pagan cultures is a counterfeit, much like their entire religion.  It is supposed to represent the tree of life, however it really represents the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which the heathen cultures believed was the “true” tree of life.

Our “star,” Greek ” aster,” Latin stella, is akin*. Her worship was most licentious and abominable; closely connected with that of (See ASHERAH, “THE GROVE”. Ashtoreh is the goddess, asherah “the grove,” the image or the symbol of the goddess, of wood;* asher, yashar, “to be straight,” a straight stem of a tree living, or fixed upright (1Ki_18:19; 2Ki_21:7; 2Ki_23:6; 2Ki_23:13-14; 2Ki_23:15; Jdg_6:25; Jdg_6:30). The “bringing out the asherah from the house of the Lord,” and the “cutting down,” suit such a symbol, not a grace in our sense. The active and passive powers of nature, generative and receptive, suggested the male and female deities, Baal and Ashtoreh. {This is seen further in the principle ‘as above, so below’ which will be discussed in connection to the mark of the beast in a future study, Yah willing}

Again, another connection to the star (hexagram) and the Asherah (Christmas tree).

Exo 34:11  Take heed for yourself what I am commanding you today. Behold, I am about to drive out from before your face the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
Exo 34:12  Take heed to yourself, that you not cut a covenant with the people of the land to which you are going in, that it not be a snare in your midst.
Exo 34:13  But you shall cut down their altars, break their pillars, and
you shall cut off their Asherahs.
Exo 34:14  For you shall not bow to another god, for YHWH whose name is Jealous, He is a jealous God;*

1Co 10:20  But the things the nations sacrifice, “they sacrifice to demons, and not to God.” Deut. 32:17 But I do not want you to become sharers of demons;
1Co 10:21  you cannot drink the cup of the Lord and a cup of demons;
you cannot partake of the table of the Lord, and a table of demons. {Mixed worship}
1Co 10:22  Or
do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He? Deut. 32:21

Deu 7:5  But you shall deal with them in this way: you shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces the cult-stones; and you shall cut down their Asherahs; and you will burn their carved images with fire.
Deu 7:6  For you are a holy people to YHWH your God. YHWH your God has chosen you to be His own treasure out of all the people on the face of the earth.

John Gill commentary on Deu. 7:5

Deu 7:5  But thus shall ye deal with them,…. The inhabitants of the land of Canaan:

ye shall destroy their altars; on which they sacrificed to their idols:

and break down their images; of their gods, and the statues and pillars erected to the honour of them:

and cut down their groves; sacred to idols, which were usually planted on hills, and about Heathen temples, and under which idols were placed to be worshipped. The Targum of Jonathan calls them trees of their adoration, under which they worshipped; though there was a worship paid to them, not indeed directly to them, or for their sakes, but for the sake of the idols they were sacred to, or were placed under them; so Maimonides (e) says, a tree which at first was planted to be worshipped is forbidden of any use (or profit); and this is the אשרה, or “grove”, spoken of in the law, a tree planted and lopped, of which a graven image is made for an idol; and so the tree that has been worshipped, though the body of it is, not forbidden, all the shoots and leaves, and the branches, and the fruits it produces all the time it is worshipped, are forbidden to be used: though the word here used sometimes seems to signify, not a grove of trees, but some image itself, since we read of it in the temple, 2Ki_21:7,

and burn their graven images with fire; distinguished from their molten images, which may be meant in a preceding clause, and which are particularly mentioned as to be destroyed as well as these, Num_33:52.

(e) Hilchot Obede Cochabim, c. 8. sect. 3, 4. Vid. Misn. Avodah Zarah, c. 3. sect. 7.

Deu 12:3  And you shall break down their altars, and shatter their standing pillars. And you shall burn their Asherahs with fire. And you shall cut down the carved images of their gods, and shall destroy their names out of that place.
Deu 12:4 
You shall not do so to YHWH your God.

Two Babylon’s – Alexander Hislop

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 may 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 figure 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*.

*Notice that the serpent wrapping around this tree brings forth life from the dead or resurrection or transformation.  This will be seen below in connection with the Christmas tree and Kundalini.

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.”
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.*

*Again it is seen that Christmas is not about birth.  But about life from the dead/rebirth or the ‘evolution of man’ into homo noeticus.  The promise of the adversary in the garden.

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.

FROM CHRISTMAS IN RITUAL BY CLEMENT MILES
Let us turn to the customs of the Roman Empire which may be in part responsible for the German Christmas-tree. The practice of adorning houses with evergreens at the January Kalends was common throughout the Empire, as we learn from Libanius, Tertullian, and Chrysostom. A grim denunciation of such decorations and the lights which accompanied them may be quoted from Tertullian; it makes a pregnant contrast of pagan and Christian. “Let them,” he says of the heathen, “kindle lamps, they who have no light; let them fix on the doorposts laurels which shall afterwards be burnt, they for whom fire is close at hand; meet for them are testimonies of darkness and auguries of punishment. But thou,” he says to the Christian, “art a light of the world and a tree that is ever green; if thou hast renounced temples, make not a temple of thy own house-door.”

Birthday connectionclick here

“Herod reigned over the Jews in Syria, in the times of Augustus; therefore the Herodians kept Herod’s birthday, as also the sabbath, on which day they set up candles in the windows lighted, and encircled with violets.”

This they did, believing him to be the Messiah: and it is further to be observed, that the word here used, is said (r) to be proper to the dead, and not to the living; and that he that uses it of the living, speaks very inaccurately: but however, it was a festival, and a time of great mirth and jollity; and a proper opportunity offered to Herodias, to execute her malicious designs against John the Baptist; for at this time,
2Ma 6:7 On the monthly celebration of the king’s birthday, the Jews were taken, under bitter constraint, to partake of the sacrifices; and when the feast of Dionysus came, they were compelled to walk in the procession in honor of Dionysus, wearing wreaths of ivy click here.

Isa 1:29  For they shall be ashamed of the trees which you lusted after; and you shall be ashamed of the gardens that you have chosen.
Isa 1:30  For you shall be like a tree whose leaf fades, and like a garden that has no water in it.

The Christmas tree represents the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  The Menorah represents the tree of Life, Yahshua where the living waters come from (Psalm 1).

Isa 57:5  Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?
Isa 30:21  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Isa 30:22  Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.

Eze 16:16  And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places (where the trees were) with divers colours (H2921), and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

H2921 טלא ṭâlâ’ taw-law’

Tapestry
TAP’ESTRY, n. [L. tapes, tapestry.] A kind of woven hangings of wool and silk, often enriched with gold and silver, representing figures of men, animals, landscapes, &c.

Eze 6:13  Then shall ye know that I am the LORD, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.
Jer 3:6  The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.

Christmas tree – Kundalini connection

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.

The pine cone is associated with the Sumerian Annunaki who are said to have ‘created’ men from clay jars.  This is referring to manipulation of DNA which will need to be discussed in greater detail in another study but needless to say it is associated with the Kundalini spirit, the ‘awakening’ of the serpent and the result of man being ‘enlightened’ or evolving into a higher spiritual being.


Notice that Christmas tree lights are connected to the serpent.  The word for serpent is nachash which literally means shining one.  This is also connected to Lucifer which means light bringer.  Here we see the Christmas tree, which represents the ‘born again’ pagan Christ who brings enlightenment to mankind.

Antichrist connection

The tradition of the Christmas tree symbolically portrayed the death and reincarnation of Osiris in his son, Horus:
“…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 feast of Christmas is, in allegorical form, the pagan celebration of the Serpent’s eventual triumph over the very God who frustrated the Babylonian attempt to build a tower to heaven (symbolized by a tree). By reviving and restoring the mystery religions as they were practiced in the pre-flood civilization, Horus became the Egyptian savior and virtual counterpart of Jesus Christ. In her Theosophical Glossary, H.P. Blavatsky thus describes Horus:
“Horus (Eg.). The last in the line of divine Sovereigns in Egypt, said to be the son of Osiris and Isis. He is the great god ‘loved of Heaven,’ the ‘’beloved of the Sun, the offspring of the gods, the subjugator of the world.’ At the time of the Winter Solstice (our Christmas), his image in the form of a small newly-born infant, was brought out from the sanctuary for the adoration of the worshipping crowds…

In pagan Rome, the celebration of the Winter Solstice began on December 17 with the feast of Saturn — also called the Saturnalia. Through December 23rd, the Roman world engaged in merrymaking and the exchanging of gifts in honor of Saturn, the god of sowing and husbandry and, according to a Rosicrucian source, to commemorate a future Golden Age of Saturn:
“Here is the general reformation of the world announced in the Rosicrucian manifestos described as a world reformation… Whilst involving definite reforms in education, church, and law, this general reformation has millenarian overtones; it will bring the world back to the state in which Adam found it, which was also Saturn’s golden age. So, in the Confessio, the second Rosicrucian manifesto, the general reformation is said to presage ‘a great influx of truth and light’ such as surrounded Adam in Paradise, and which God will allow before the end of the world…this millennium, this return to the golden age of Adam and Saturn, is said to be assisted by ‘the high society of the Rosicrucians.’”

…the manner and the means by which the present-day man is transformed into the Divine Superman.  This symbol-  Christian Rose Cross- shows the end and aim of human evolution; ” “the solution of the World Mystery – Man’s past evolution, present constitution, and particularly the secret of his future development.

Christmas is a “Christianized” form of Saturnalia.  The winter-solstice celebration in honor of Saturn.  It established that Saturn’s mark is the hexagram and is the star which ancient Yisrael worshipped in the wilderness according to the prophet Amos.

Interestingly, it is said that Mithras referred to himself as a star.
“I am a star which goes with thee and shines out of the depths”Connection to Nibiruclick here ?

The Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star, is a star in Christian tradition that revealed the birth of Jesus to the magi (or “wise men”) and later led them to Bethlehem.

The Gift Of The Magi, p. 4.

Christ is a Greek word for king. A king was one who was literally born under the cosmic signature of the King’s Star. Jesus, as we know, was born in the lineage of the House of David. But to be born in the lineage of David didn’t only mean that you had parents in that lineage. It also meant that you were born under the Star of David, which occurred when Jupiter, the King ’s Star, aligned with Saturn…there was, in fact, a triple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, in the sign of Pisces, in the years 7-6 BC.”

“…the religion of Saturn is Saturnian gnosis – which turns out to be a rehash of the gnosticism that the high level Satanists believe in. Saturn is severe. Jupiter is mild. The merging of Saturn (severity) with Jupiter is the creation of the new Golden Age — according to high level Satanic hierarchy teachings.” Fritz Springmeier & Cisco Wheeler, The Illuminati Formula, 1996, p.160

The Hexagram and the Pentagram are synonomous

The pentacle is also the logo of the Theosophical Society. Founder H.P. Blavatsky identifies the pentacle as: “Any geometrical figure, especially double equilateral triangle, the six-pointed star, (like the theosophical pentacle).”  The Theosophical Glossary, p. 251.

Albert Pike, stated: “…the blazing star… represents [the] Star of Horus…Morning Star…Star of Set…Lucifer.”  Cathy Burns, Hidden Secrets Of The Eastern Star, pp.52-53

Since the quintessence is symbolized by the pentacle or six-pointed star, we may infer that this essence which enhances material elements is Lucifer, symbolized in occult language by the eagle or phoenixclick here.

The Blazing Star

Theosophist Charles Leadbeater wrote in The Hidden Life of Freemasonry: “The blazing star is properly six-pointed.” The History Of Freemasonry, p. 79.

Rosicrucian Grand Master, Max Heindels, identifies December 24 and 25 as the most potent time of the astrological year and the ideal time for initiation rites:

Max Heindels, Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception: Mystic Christianity, CA:Rosicrucian Fellowship, 1988, p. 390.

“The night between the 24th and 25th of December is the holy night, par excellence, of the entire year. The zodiacal sign of the Immaculate Celestial Virgin stands upon the eastern horizon near midnight. The sun of the new year is then born and starts upon his journey from the southernmost point toward the northern hemisphere, to save that part of humanity (physically) from the darkness and famine which would inevitably result if he were to remain permanently south of the equator… The spiritual influences are strongest, in the north, at midnight of the 24th of December… It would then be easiest for those who wish to take a definite step toward initiation to get in conscious touch with the spiritual time… The blazing star is ever there to guide him.

This all points to man becoming ‘god.’  An ‘enlightened being’ knowing good and evil and ‘shall not die.’

Share International Reveals Christmas Miracle
In 1988, CNN and other media reported on Maitreya’s miraculous appearance to 6,000 people in Nairobi, Kenya, on Saturday, June 11. A week before the event, a remarkable sign occurred: “On Saturday 4 June a big, bright star was sighted, unusually brighter than ordinary stars,” reported Kenya Times editor Job Mutungi.

Christmas Miracle

For years the world has been filled with miracles of all kinds. In April 1995 Time magazine devoted an eight-page spread to its cover story on miracles, and concluded:”People are hungry for signs.”

Look now for the biggest miracle of all. In the very near future a large, bright star will appear in the sky visible to all throughout the world – night and day.
Awaited by all faiths under different names, Maitreya is the Christ to Christians, the Imam Mahdi to Muslims, Krishna to Hindus, the Messiah to Jews, and Maitreya Buddha to Buddhists. He is the World Teacher for all, religious or not, an educator in the broadest sense.

“In the very near future, people everywhere will have the opportunity to witness an extraordinary and significant sign, the like of which has been manifested only once before, at the birth of Jesus. Then, according to Christian teaching, a star appeared in the heavens and led three wise men from the East to the birthplace of Jesus. Soon, once again, a star-like luminary of brilliant power will be seen around the world.” (Benjamin Creme’s Master, ‘Maitreya’s first interview’, SI Jan/Feb 2009)

On 12 December 2008 Share International distributed a news release announcing that in the very near future a large, bright star would appear in the sky visible throughout the world, night and day, heralding the imminent appearance of Maitreya in His first interview on a major US television programme. Since early January 2009 sightings of the star have been reported all over the world and hundreds of sightings have been sent to Share International. We include a selection of the latest reports from the media, Share International readers, and sightings from YouTube. All are genuine sightings confirmed by Benjamin Creme’s Master to be the ‘star’.

With Maitreya and His group working openly in the world, humanity is assured not only of survival but of the creation of a brilliant new civilization.

The term “Novus Ordo Seclorum,” A New Order of the Ages, was adapted by Charles Thomson in 1782 who, while designing the Great Seal of the United States, was inspired by a line in Virgil’s Ecologue IV from the first century:

Now the last age by Cumae’ Sibyl has come and gone,

And the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew:

Justice returns, old Saturn’s reign

With a new breed of men sent down from heaven.

On do thou, at the boy’s birth in whom

The iron shall cease, the golden race arise,

Befriend him, chaste Lucina: ‘this thine own Apollo reigns….

He shall receive the life of gods,

And see Heroes and gods commingling,

And himself be seen of them,

And with his father’s worth.

Santa Claus Poseidon connection

St. Nicholas ever existed as a human. In fact, there are quite a few indicators that his life story was simply recycled from those of Pagan gods. Many other ancient Pagan gods and goddesses were similarly Christianized in the early centuries of the Church. His legends seems to have been mainly created out of myths attributed to the Greek God Poseidon, the Roman God Neptune, and the Teutonic God Hold Nickar.  “In the popular imagination [of many Russians] he became the heir of Mikoula, the god of harvest, ‘who will replace God, when God becomes too old.’

“St. Nicholas of Bari (Fourth Century),” Catholic Information Network, at: http://www.cin.org/nichbari.html

When the church created the persona of St. Nicholas, they adopted Poseidon’s title “the Sailor.” They seem to have picked up his last name from Nickar. Various temples of Poseidon became shrines of St. Nicholas. 1 “In medieval England… in tiny sea ports we find the typical little chapel built on an eminence and looking out to sea.” 8 St. Nicholas also adopted some of the qualities of “The Grandmother” or Befana from Italy. She was said to have filled children’s stockings with gifts. Her shrine at Bari was also converted into a shrine to St. Nicholas.

“Probably earlier than the association of St. Nicholas with Poseidon is that with Demeter, or Diana*, whose cult was particularly in vogue in Lycia, the scene of the principal events in the story of St. Nicholas.”
George H. McKnight, St. Nicholas: His Legend and His Role in the Christmas Celebration and Other Popular Customs (1917).

*Here we see again the connection between Nimrod & Semiramis.

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. Here a colossal statue of him was set up in bronze by the Greeks after their victory over the Persians.

*Isthmian games:

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.

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, earlier of parsley, in the Olympian games of the wild olive. “Yet these were the most coveted honours in the whole Greek world” (Findlay).

Saturnalia

In memory of the Golden Age of man, a mythical age when Saturnclick here was said to have ruled, a great feast called Saturnalia was held during the winter months around the time of the winter solstice.

In Babylon he was called Ninib and was an agricultural deity. Saturn, called Cronus by the Greeks, was, at the dawn of the Ages of the Gods, the Protector and Sower of the Seed and his wife, Ops, (called Rhea by the Greeks) was a Harvest Helper.

In memory of the Golden Age, when Saturn reigned in Italy, the great feast of Saturnalia was held every year during the winter.  The idea of it was that the Golden Age returned to the earth during the days it lasted.

Author Hugo Slim reminds us that Christmas “is perhaps the best example of the early Church Christianizing the traditional non-Christian festivals of a season—in this case the festivals of returning light surrounding the winter solstice” (A Feast of Festivals, pp. 36–37). The Romans celebrated the solstice season as the “Saturnalia, honoring Saturn, the god of agriculture” (Fillmore, p. 10).
This connection to the Saturnalia reveals an even darker side to Christmas traditions, and shows plainly why Christmas is not a child-friendly holiday! The Encyclopaedia Britannica explains that at the feast of Saturnalia, “all classes exchanged gifts, the commonest being wax tapers and clay dolls. These dolls were especially given to children…” (article: “Saturnalia,” 11th edition). What was the purpose of those gifts? “Varro thought these dolls represented original sacrifices of human beings to the infernal god. There was, as we have seen, a tradition that human sacrifices were once offered to Saturn, and the Greeks and Romans gave the name of Cronus and Saturn to a cruel Phoenician Baal, to whom, e.g. children were sacrificed at Carthage” (ibid.).

Saturnalia—the festival Christmas absorbed—even carries echoes of ancient child sacrifice! It sounds horrific that dolls were given as gifts as symbols or proxies of children burnt to pagan gods. Yet this practice echoes the modern tradition of hanging cherubs or human figures on Christmas trees! The ancient Greeks placed small masks called oscilla on branches, where they could twirl freely in the wind. Encyclopaedia Britannica explains that oscilla were small figures, most commonly masks or faces, that were hung up “as offerings to various deities.… The custom of hanging these oscilla represents an older practice of expiating human sacrifice” (ibid.).
Not only did ancient Saturn-worship and fire-worship involve child sacrifice, it also included cannibalism. Author John Garnier noted: “Cannibalism appears to have been initiated by Cronus, i.e. Saturn… For we are told by Sanchoniathon that Cronus was the originator of human sacrifices… Saturn is represented as devouring his own children.” (The Worship of the Dead, pp. 34–35).

Passing through the fire to Molech

Jer 7:30  For the sons of Judah have done evil in My eyes, says YHWH. They have set their idols in the house on which is called My name, in order to defile it.
Jer 7:31  They have built the high places of Tophet in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, nor did it come into My heart.

Psa 106:34  They did not destroy the peoples, as Jehovah said to them,
Psa 106:35  but mingled with the nations, and learned their works.
Psa 106:36  And they served their idols, and they became a snare to them.
Psa 106:37  Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons;
Psa 106:38  and they shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan. And the land was polluted with the blood.
Psa 106:39  And they were unclean with their works, and went whoring in their acts.

John Gill commentary

to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire: which was done, as Jarchi says, by putting them into the arms of the brasen image Moloch, heated hot. The account he gives of Tophet is this,

“Tophet is Moloch, which was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved:”

but in this he is mistaken; for “Tophet” was not the name of an idol, but of a place, as is clear from this and the following verse. There is some agreement between this account of Jarchi, and that which Diodorus Siculus (z) gives of Saturn, to whom children were sacrificed by the Carthaginians; who had, he says, a brasen image of Saturn*, which stretched out his hands, inclining to the earth; so that a child put upon them rolled down, and fell into a chasm full of fire:

*This is important to note.  The worship of Saturn = Ba’al worship. This brazen image of Saturn is the origin of placing children into the lap of Santa Claus.  Halloweenclick here (death) and Christmas (birthdays) are intimately connected.  Birthdaysclick here originally were celebrations of the dead which can be seen by the Greek word that is translated into ‘birthday’.

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.

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).

Holly/Ivy wreaths

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 Saturn.

Circular wreaths of evergreen branches (especially holly) were a featured part of the festival. These were formed in the shape of the sun, and represented life which could not exist without sunlight. These wreaths were placed on inside and outside walls during the celebrations. At the time of initiation into the Dionysian mysteries, these were worn by the initiates as fertility symbols. They represented the perpetuity of existence through on-going cycles of life, death, and rebirth.

Mistletoe

“The winter solstice (Dec 25) was the time at which all the sun-gods from Osiris to Jupiter and Mithra had celebrated their (birthdays), the celebration being adorned with the pine tree of Adonis, the Holy of Saturn, and the Mistletoe tappers represented the kindling of the newborn sun-god’s
fire…”  (Man and His Gods pg 2013)

New Year’s Day

Caesar changed the calendar (Daniel 7:24-25) in order for it to start on January 1st, a month named after Janus, the god of gates, doors, doorways, beginnings and endings.

He was the god of ‘regeneration.’

Two Babylons pg 128
“Now, wherever Noah is celebrated, whether by the name of Saturnclick here , “the hidden one,”–for that name was applied to him as well as to Nimrod, on account of his having been “hidden” in the ark, in the “day of the Lord’s fierce anger,”–or, “Oannes,” or “Janus,” the “Man of the Sea,” he is generally described in such a way as shows that he was looked upon as Diphues, “twice-born,” or “regenerate.” The “twice-born” Brahmins, who are all so many gods upon earth, by the very title they take to themselves, show that the god whom they represent, and to whose prerogatives they lay claim, had been known as the “twice-born” god. The connection of “regeneration” with the history of Noah, comes out with special evidence in the accounts
handed down to us of the Mysteries as celebrated in Egypt. The most learned explorers of Egyptian antiquities, including Sir Gardiner Wilkinson, admit that the story of Noah was mixed up with the story of Osiris. The ship of Isis, and the coffin of Osiris, floating on the waters, point distinctly to that remarkable event. There were different periods, in different places in Egypt, when the fate of Osiris was lamented; and at one time there was more special reference to the personal history of “the mighty hunter before the Lord,” and at another to the awful catastrophe through which Noah passed. In the great and solemn festival called “The Disappearance of Osiris,” it is evident that it is Noah himself who was then supposed to have been lost. The time when Osiris was “shut up in his coffin,” and when that coffin was set afloat on the waters, as stated by Plutarch, agrees exactly with the period when Noah entered the ark. That time was “the 17th day of the month Athyr, when the overflowing of the Nile had ceased, when the nights were growing long and the days decreasing.” The month Athyr was the second month after the autumnal equinox, at which time the civil year of the Jews and the patriarchs began. According to this statement, then, Osiris was “shut up in his coffin” on the 17th day of the second month of the patriarchal year. Compare this with the Scriptural account of Noah’s entering into the ark, and it will be seen how remarkably they agree (Gen 7:11), “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the SECOND MONTH, in the SEVENTEENTH DAY of the month, were all the fountains of the great deep broken up; in the self- same day entered Noah into the ark.” The period, too, that Osiris (otherwise Adonis) was believed to have been shut up in his coffin, was precisely the same as Noah was confined in the ark, a whole year. *
* APOLLODORUS. THEOCRITUS, Idyll. Theocritus is speaking of Adonis as delivered by Venus from Acheron, or the infernal regions, after being there for a year; but as the scene is laid in Egypt, it is evident that it is Osiris he refers to, as he was the Adonis of the Egyptians.

Now, the statements of Plutarch demonstrate that, as Osiris at this festival was looked upon as dead and buried when put into his ark or coffin, and committed to the deep, so, when at length he came out of it again, that new state was regarded as a state of “new life,” or “REGENERATION.”

Two Babylon’s pg 244
“Saturn, the hidden god,–the god of the Mysteries, whom the Pope represents, whose secrets were revealed only to the initiated,–was identical with Janus, who was publicly known to all Rome, to the uninitiated and initiated alike, as the grand Mediator, the opener and the shutter, who had the key of the invisible world.

Now, what means the name Janus? That name, as Cornificius in Macrobius shows, was properly Eanus; and in ancient Chaldee, E-anush signifies “the Man.” By that very name was the Babylonian beast from the sea called, when it first made its appearance * The name, as given in Greek by Berosus, is O-annes; but this is just the very way we might expect “He-anesth,” “the man,” to appear in Greek. He-siri, in Greek, becomes Osiris; and He-sarsiphon, Osarsiphon; and, in like manner, Heanesh naturally becomes Oannes. In the sense of a “Man-god,” the name Oannes is taken by Barker (Lares and Penates). We find the conversion of the H’ into O’ among our own immediate neighbours, the Irish; what is now O’Brien and O’Connell was originally H’Brien and H’Connell (Sketches of Irish History).

The name E-anush, or “the Man,” was applied to the Babylonian Messiah, as identifying him with the promised seed of the Woman. The name of “the Man,” as applied to a god, was intended to designate him as the “god-man.” We have seen that in India the Hindoo Shasters bear witness, that in order to enable the gods to overcome their enemies, it was needful that the Sun, the
supreme divinity, should be incarnate, and born of a Woman. The classical nations had a legend of precisely the same nature. “There was a current tradition in heaven,” says Apollodorus, “that the giants could never be conquered except by the help of a man.” That man, who was believed to have conquered the adversaries of the gods, was Janus, the god-man.

In consequence of his assumed character and exploits, Janus was invested with high powers, made the keeper of the gates of heaven, and arbiter of men’s eternal destinies. Of this Janus, this Babylonian “man,” the Pope, as we have seen, is the legitimate representative; his key, therefore, he bears, with that of Cybele, his mother-wife; and to all his blasphemous pretensions he at this hour lays claim. The very fact, then, that the Pope founds his claim to universal homage on the possession of the keys of heaven, and that in a sense which empowers him, in defiance of every principle of Christianity, to open and shut the gates of glory, according to his mere sovereign will and pleasure, is a striking and additional proof that he is that head of the beast from the sea, whose number, as identified with Janus, is the number of a man, and amounts exactly to 666.”

Hislop further links Janus to Adam, the ‘god-man’ in the flesh (carnal nature).  This is the essence of the Mystery religions.  Man’s desire to be immortal and at the same time not die to the carnal nature.

“But there is something further still in the name of Janus or Eanus, not to be passed over. Janus, while manifestly worshipped as the Messiah or god-man, was also celebrated as “Principium Decorum,” the source and fountain of all the Pagan gods. We have already in this character
traced him backward through Cush to Noah; but to make out his claim to this high character, in its proper completeness, he must be traced even further still. The Pagans knew, and could not but know, at the time the Mysteries were concocted, in the days of Shem and his brethren, who, through the Flood, had passed from the old world to the new, the whole story of Adam, and therefore it was necessary, if a deification of mankind there was to be, that his pre-eminent dignity, as the human “Father of gods and men,” should not be ignored. Nor was it. The
Mysteries were full of what he did, and what befel him; and the name E-anush, or, as it appeared in the Egyptian form, Ph’anesh, “The man,” was only another name for that of our great progenitor. The name of Adam in the Hebrew of Genesis almost always occurs with the article before it, implying “The Adam,” or “The man.” There is this difference, however–”The Adam” refers to man unfallen, E-anush, “The man,” to “fallen man.” E-anush, then, as “Principium decorum,” “The fountain and father of the gods,” is “FALLEN Adam.” *
* Anesh properly signifies only the weakness or frailty of fallen humanity; but any one who consults OVID, Fashti, as to the character of Janus, will see that when E-anush was deified, it was not simply as Fallen man with his weakness, but Fallen man with his corruption.

The principle of Pagan idolatry went directly to exalt fallen humanity, to consecrate its lusts, to give men license to live after the flesh, and yet, after such a life, to make them sure of eternal felicity. E-anus, the “fallen man,” was set up as the human Head of this system of  corruption– this “Mystery of Iniquity.” Now, from this we come to see the real meaning of the name, applied to the divinity commonly worshipped in Phrygia along with Cybele in the very same character as this same Janus, who was at once the Father of the gods, and the Mediatorial divinity. That name was Atys, or Attis, or Attes, * and the meaning will evidently appear from the meaning of the
well-known Greek word Ate, which signifies “error of sin,” and is obviously derived from the Chaldean Hata, “to sin.”

The Keys

“The very apostolic designation, Peter, is from the Mysteries. The hierophant or supreme pontiff bore the Chaldean title peter, or interpreter. The names Phtah, Peth’r, the residence of Balaam, Patara, and Patras, the names of oracles-cities, pateres or pateras and, perhaps, Buddha, all come from the same root … No apostle Peter was ever at Rome; but the Pope, seizing the scepter of the Pontifex Maximus, the keys of Janus and Kubelé, and adorning his Christian head with the cap of the Magna Mater, copied from that of the tiara of Brahmâtma, the Supreme Pontiff of the Initiates of old India, became the successor of the Pagan high priest, the real Peter-Roma, or Petroma (the tiara of the Pope is also a perfect copy of that of the Dalai-Lama of Thibet)” (Isis Unveiled, Blavatsky, p. 30).

Two Babylons pg 184
“Janus bore a key, and Cybele bore a key; and these are the two keys that the Pope emblazons on his arms as the ensigns of his spiritual authority…I have said that the Pope became the representative of Janus, who, it is evident, was none other
than the Babylonian Messiah. If the reader only considers the blasphemous assumptions of the Papacy, he will see how exactly it has copied from its original. In the countries where the Babylonian system was most thoroughly developed, we find the Sovereign Pontiff of the Babylonian god invested with the very attributes now ascribed to the Pope. Is the Pope called “God upon earth,” the “Vice-God,” and “Vicar of Jesus Christ”? The King in Egypt, who was Sovereign Pontiff, * was, says Wilkinson, regarded with the highest reverence as “THE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE DIVINITY ON EARTH.”

Janus – Lucifer

Two Babylon’s pg 205
“The power, the popularity, and skill of Nimrod, as well as the seductive nature of the system itself, enabled him to spread the delusive doctrine far and wide, as he was represented under the well-known name of Phaethon, This Phaethon, or Lucifer, who was cast down is further proved to be Janus; for Janus is called “Pater Matutinus” (HORACE); and the meaning of this name will appear in one of its aspects when the meaning of the name of the Dea Matuta is ascertained. Dea Matuta signifies “The kindling or Light-bringing goddess,” * and accordingly, by Priscian, she is identified with Aurora.”

Janus – Phoenix

A phoenix is a mythical bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1,000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (sun city in Greek).

Manly P. Hall The Phoenix: An Illustrated Review of Occultism and Philosophy

“Among the ancients a fabulous bird called the Phoenix is described by early writers … in size and shape it resembles the eagle, but with certain differences.  The body of the Phoenix is one covered with glossy purple feathers, and the plumes in its tail are alternately blue and red.  The head of the bird is light in color, and about its neck is a circlet of golden plumage.  At the back of its back the Phoenix has a crest of feathers of brilliant color … The Phoenix, it is said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new born Phoenix emerges.  Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection … The Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders of the ancient world and of the initiate of those orders, for it was common to refer to one who had been accepted into the temples as a man twice-born, or reborn.  Wisdom confers a new life, and those who become wise are born again.” [p. p. 176-77]

Barbara Walker Now Is The Dawning , p. 281

“Egyptians believed that the Phoenix was the representative of a god who “rose to heaven in the form of a morning star, like Lucifer, after his fire-immolation of death and rebirth …”

William Schnoebelen, in his book, Satan’s Door Revisited , p. 4.  “The Phoenix, of Bunnu is believed to be a divine bird going back to Egypt … This Phoenix destroys itself in flames and then rises from the ashes.  Most occultists believe that the Phoenix is a symbol of Lucifer who was cast down in flames and who … will one day rise triumphant.  This [belief] also relates to the raising of Hiram Abiff, the Masonic ‘christ’.”

Manly P. Hall The Lost Keys of Freemasonry pg 108

“These were the immortals to whom the term ‘phoenix’ was applied, and their symbol was the mysterious two-headed bird, now called an eagle , a familiar and little understood Masonic emblem .”

Masonic author, R. Swinburne Clymer The Mysteries of Osiris , pg 42

“When they [pagans] desired to express the renewal, or beginning, of the year, they represented it in the form of a door-keeper. It could easily be distinguished by the attributes of a key … At times, they gave it two heads, back to back … In time, this [back-to-back key symbol] became the double-headed Eagle of symbolic Masonry.

Here we see the true meaning of why January 1st was chosen as New Year’s day.  The day that was sacred to Janus.  The two headed god who represented being ‘reborn’ or regenerated.

Biederman’s Dictionary explains the symbolism of the eagle: “In ancient Syria, the eagle was associated with the sun-god. It was said to be capable of rejuvenation, like the phoenix.”

Order out of Chaos

Manly P. Hall, 33o , the 20th Century’s most revered Masonic scholar, titled this “The Double-Headed Eagle, The Supreme Symbol,” in his book The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Chaos begets order, but chaos ensues again, followed by order, and so on. The conflict of opposites leads finally to system equilibrium which is disturbed once again by renewed conflict, and a new, temporary stage of equilibrium is achieved. Ever upward, evolving until perfection. So, the Illuminist is a perfectionist ever changing, seeking more light as he travels down that yellow brick road to tomorrow.

Order out of chaos brings ‘balance’, equilibrium

The hexagram is the sign used in the Royal Arch in Freemasonry.  Masonic author Wes Cook, writing in Did You Know? Vignettes in Masonry from the Royal Arch Mason Magazine, [Missouri Lodge of Research, 1965, p. 132] stated that the hexagram represented “balance and harmony” in all facets of the world.  Another Masonic publication links the hexagram with the infamous Chinese YANG AND YIN symbol. ["The Significant Numbers", Short Talk Bulletin , September, 1956, Vol. 34, No. 9, p. 5]

The hierophant

The hierophant of the tarot cards gives the same imagery as baphomet because the hierophant represents the same thing as baphomet.  It is believed by some that the tarot cards were derived from the Knights Templar who were made infamous for worshiping the idol of Baphomet.

“There is a distinctly sadistic aspect to this card; not unnaturally, since it derives from the Legend of Pasiphae, the prototype of all the legends of Bull-Gods.” (Aleister Crowley, The Book of Thoth)

Baphomet represents ‘as above, so below.’

The following image is the ‘Magical head of Zohar’.  It represents a balance of light and darkness, male and female…the divine/perfect/regenerated man.  It is the principle of ‘as above, so below’.

The androgyne, a combination creature of male and female, symbolizes the hermaphrodite principle of the two-faced entity or two-headed eagle. In the Jewish Cabala, this strange creation of the feminine and masculine principle is known as “Adam Kadmon,” both Adam and Eve, a Golem. This conjunction of opposites is part of the science of alchemy, or hermeticism, and is especially beloved by occult magicians. In witchcraft, it is known as the joining of sun and moon.

Keys in Freemasonry

Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capitol pg 245
“…one of the mysterious symbols of early Masonry is the key, said to be an attribute of the dog-headed Anubis, who was for the Egyptians an emblem of the dog star, and keeper of the ancient Mysteries.  The key was meant to symbolize the closing of one year and the opening of another, because the Egyptians formerly commenced the year at the rising of this star.  When Fellows adds that this marking of the year by the star was later extended to the opening and shutting of the place of departed spirits, he was reaching into the mystery of Cancer and Capricorn…From this single reference, we begin to see how important Sirius really is within arcane Masonic circles – not merely because it was a star of prime importance to the Masons, but also because it was linked with Masonic symbolism in such a simple-seeming device as a key.”

Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capitol pg 246
“The specifically Egyptian sba star (which related only to the heavens) was taken as representing entrance into both Heaven and Hell, and thus by extension, the realm of the Earth, where angels and demons might meet to contend for human souls.  The blazing star of the Masons is a symbol of an accessible Heaven.  It is equated with the sacred key, which can unlock the mysteries of Heaven, Earth and Hell.”

Egyptian hieroglyph for Sirius

The Holy Scriptures speak of this key as well

Rev 9:1  And the fifth angel trumpeted. And I saw a star out of the heaven falling onto the earth. And the key to the pit of the abyss was given to it.
Rev 9:2  And he opened the pit of the abyss. And smoke went up out of the pit, like smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, and the air, by the smoke of the pit.
Rev 9:3  And out of the smoke locusts came forth to the earth. And authority was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have authority.
Rev 9:4  And it was said to them that they should not harm the grass of the earth, nor every green thing, nor every tree, except only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
Rev 9:5  And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but that they be tormented five months. And their torment is as the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man.
Rev 9:6  And in those days men will seek death, and they will not find it. And they will long to die, yet death will flee from them.
Rev 9:7  And the likenesses of the locusts were like horses having been prepared for war; and on their heads as crowns, like gold; and their faces like the faces of men.
Rev 9:8  And they had hairs like the hairs of women; and their teeth were like those of lions.
Rev 9:9  And they had breastplates like iron breastplates; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running to war.
Rev 9:10  And they have tails like scorpions, and their stings were in their tails; and their authority is to harm men five months.
Rev 9:11  And they have a king over them, the angel of the abyss. In Hebrew his name was Abaddon, and in Greek he has the name Apollyon.

Father Time

Baby New Year with Father Time

Baby New Year with Father Time

The myth associated with him is that he is a baby at the beginning of his year, but Baby New Year quickly grows up until he is an elderly bearded man like Father Time at the end of his year.  Again, the ‘new man’ regeneration concept is seen.

Groundhog’s Day

click here

Groundhog’s Day traces back to the Celtic festival of Imbolc.  It is yearly celebration of mother earth coming back to life.  Again, the theme of resurrection is seen.

The Groundhog=’earth mother’=the serpent

A Scottish Gaelic proverb about the day is:

Thig an nathair as an toll
Là donn Brìde,
Ged robh trì troighean dhen t-sneachd
Air leac an làir.

“The serpent will come from the hole
On the brown Day of Bride,
Though there should be three feet of snow
On the flat surface of the ground.”
Carmina Gadelica: Hymns and Incantations, Ortha Nan Gaidheal, Volume I, p. 169

The day is also called ‘St. Brigid’s’ Day.  In Irish mythology, Brigit (exalted one) was the daughter of one of the Tuatha de Danaan.

Tuatha Dé Danann were the nephilimclick here.

Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions – James Bonwick

By far the most interesting of the peoples that formerly inhabited Ireland were the Tuaths, or Tuatha de Danaans, or Dananns. There is much mystery about them in Irish traditions. They were men, gods, or fairies.

http://www.shee-eire.com/Magic&Mythology/Races/Tuatha-De-Danann/Page1.htm

They arrived in Ireland, on or about May 1 (the date of the festival of Beltaine), on dark clouds, although later versions rationalize this by saying they burned their ships to prevent retreat, and the “clouds” were the smoke produced.

“the Tuatha De Danaan arrived in a mist, it is said, and that they came through the air and the high air to Ireland.”

The Tuatha de Danaan were sometimes described as ‘fairies.’

An Encyclopedia of Fairies (Briggs, 1976) gives numerous ancient examples of fairy abductions. Almost always a special drink was given to the abductee. This drink, usually described as a thick liquid, was an essential part of the fairy abduction. Women are abducted much more often than men and some fairies take special delight, in repeatedly capturing women for amorous motives. In short, some fairies simply liked having sexual relations with mortals.

Fairies abduct their victims through paralysis; then they simply carry (levitate and fly) the abductee away into “fairyland.” Fairyland is always nearby; under normal conditions we can’t see or perceive it. The paralysis induced on the victim is how fairies get their abductee to enter fairyland. The modern word “stroke” (meaning paralysis) is derived from the ancient terms “elf-stroke” and “fairy-stroke.” Fairies travel in circular globes of light, sometimes called “will-o-the-wisp.

It is interesting that this holiday traces back to Brigid who was considered a Tuatha De Danaan which trace back to the Fallen Angels and Nephilim.  This holiday is known for a groundhog coming out of the ground which traces back to the serpent coming out of the ground to welcome Spring.  An interesting picture forms of the serpent seed ‘coming out of the ground’ to ‘welcome’ the ‘Golden Age’, the false kingdom.

Weather prognostication

Predicting the weather via a groundhog coming out of the ground is nothing more than a sugar coated tradition that traces back to divination.

Isa 8:19  And when they say to you, Seek to the mediums, and to spirit-knowers who peep and mutter; should not a people seek to its God, than for the living to seek the ones who died?

The groundhog/serpent comes out of the belly of the earth to divine the future…this traces back to the spirit of the python which can be seen in the book of Acts.

Act 16:16  And it happened, as we went into a place of prayer, a certain girl slave having a Pythonic spirit met us, whose divining brought much gain to her lords.

This unclean spirit is used to foretell future things and is the same as the Ob in Hebrew seen in Leviticus 20:27 which the Septuagint translates as “Engastrimythos”, a ventriloquist, one that seemed to speak out of his belly.

This link between the python spirit and belly speaking is source of the modern day tongues movement.  This is seen in part 11click here on the section on the camel & gimel.  As seen previously, the mysteries speak of the devil appearing as a camel in the garden.  Kabbalistic teaching associated the power of speech with the letter gimel which is a picture of a camel.  Speaking in ‘tongues’ is associated with the kundalini spirit/python spiritClick Here.

Feast day of the bride

A Scottish rhyme about the Feast Day of Bride begins:

This is the day of Bride,
The queen will come from the mound…

In other versions it is a “serpent” that will emerge from a hole, an allusion which Professor Séamus Ó Cáthain has linked to Scandinavian customs regarding the reappearance of the hibernating bear.  For this is the time when the animal world begins to stir from its winter sleep in the depths of earth, and life and light is ushered in by Brigid, the Queen.

Secrets in the Fields pg 98 – ‘Beltane Wheel’

Secrets in the Fields pg 98
“The date of its appearance – three days after the Celtic solar festival of Beltane – and the thirty-three ‘flames’ show a definite connection.  Traditionally, thirty-three is a solar number and in many religions it is associated with divinity.  Dividing the 365-day year by thirty-three gives 11.060606, with eleven years representing the periodic recycling of sunspot activity, and 666 (amidst the zeros), the number attributed to the Sun as well as the ‘Beast.’ “

Valentine’s Day

Lupercalia, which began at the ides of February, February 15, was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.”

The Lupercalia by name was believed in antiquity to have some connection with the Ancient Greek festival of the Arcadian Lykaia (from Ancient Greek: λύκος — lykos, “wolf”, Latin lupus) and the worship of Lycaean Pan, the Greek equivalent to Faunus, as instituted by Evander.

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.

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.”

The pine cone represents the pineal gland where serpent rises up the spine to open the ’3rd eye’ of the initiate.

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

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.”

Bees & DNA

Frans Kamp on the ‘Orion Queen’

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.  The ancient Egyptian word and hieroglyph for goddess also means serpent and the hieroglyph for Sirius means tooth.  The Egyptian word for tooth also means dog and more specifically dog-god.

Bees & the Merovingian bloodline

Rome is said to have been founded by Romulus and Remus.  L.A. Waddell in the ‘British Edda’ points out that in the Edda text Rom is another name for Edin or Eden.  Rom or Romil was also a title of the Set and serpent worshippers of ancient Egypt. Waddell associates the ‘wolf tribe’ with the star Sirius (dog star).

British Edda L.A. Waddell pg 277
“Rome” Title for Eden & Mother-Son Cult

“Rom of the Edda is thus seen to have been a synonym for Eden and its Wolf-tribe priestess and Chaldee people.  This now appears to explain the legend that the mythical founders of the new Rome in Italy, Romulus and Remus, were ‘wolf suckled,’ suggesting that they were of the Mother-cult of the Wolf-Tribe of the Roms….Moreover, Rom or Romit was the title of the Set-Wolf and Serpent worshipping aborigines of Ancient Egypt.”

Egyptian Serpent Worship

In the Temple of Serapeum in Alexandria (‘City of the Serpent’s Son’) which was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, Serapis was portrayed as a massive statue standing on a crocodile holding a staff with a serpent coiling around it.  At the top of the staff were the heads of a lion, dog, and wolf, all symbols of the serpent cult. {Return of the Serpent’s of Wisdom pg 56}

Arcadia

While we know little about it, the Lupercalia seems to have been a curious Latin festival with mysterious Greek origins.  Later Roman writers like Plutarch suggested that it originated in Arcadia in southern Greece, where Lykaian Pan was worshiped (lykos is the Greek word for wolf). The Roman poet Virgil would turn that same Arcadia into an ideal image of Paradise, a lost Golden Age.

The ‘lost Golden Age’ is speaking of the days of Noah/’Atlantis’/the age of SaturnSaturn Days of Noah.

The story of Romulus and Remus being nurtured and brought up by wolves is connected to other cultures and their claim that their rulers descend from dogs/wolves.  It all traces back to the star Sirius.

When the Sun and Moon conjoined at the start of the Egyptian New Year a festival known as the “sacred marriage” was celebrated. This may relate to the Pyramid Texts which state that Pharaoh unites with Isis in a form of hieros gamos bringing forth Horus-Sopdu. In another passage, the royal-divine union is said to beget the Morning Star, and thus may connect Venus with Horus.

Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital pg 121
“Sirius, the dog star, was called Sihor by the ancient Egyptians, who represented it as a dog-headed divinity, sometimes as a dog, representative of the god Anubis.  The importance of the star in the ancient Egyptian culture cannot be overstated.  Many Egyptian temples were oriented to the dog star in ancient times.  The astronomer Norman Lockyer studied many of these orientations, and among the most interesting he published was the orientation of the Temple of Isis at Denderah, which was directed to Sirius….Sirius rose with the Sun on the Egyptian New Year.  This, in mythological language, was the star goddess Isis mingling her light with that of the sun god, Ra.”

Among the Sumerians, the sacred marriage took place between the priest-king and Inanna, the latter probably represented by the Lukur priestess, who was in turn linked with the daughters of dog-headed Bau. Inanna again has as her planet Venus and Sirius as one of her fixed stars. The king during this ritual stands for Dumuzi, the husband of Inanna, and every year near the rising of Sirius in the summer, the Kelabim or dog priests of Dumuzi (Tammuz) held rites for the god.

The sex rites of Lupercalia trace back to this mystery Babylon worship.

Adonis had similar rites, and Carl Kerenyi believes that the orgia festivals celebrated in honor of Dionysos were also linked with the Sirius cycle.

Further to the east we find numerous myths of the marriage of a dog to a goddess or queen in the totemic histories of numerous peoples. Especially in Central Asia, South China, Southeast Asia and the Pacific the concept of part-dog or wolf ancestry is prevalent. From Assam in the West to Mongolia in the North and Java in the South, eastward to New Guinea and other Pacific isles in Oceania and northward again to the Ryukus and Bering Sea, the sacred dog-human marriage motif is found.

Over and over the association with the dog/wolf and sexual rites and marriage is seen in ancient cultures.  Why?  Many ancient cultures believed that ‘gods’ came from heaven and mated with human women.  This is spoken of in Genesis 6 during the days of Noahclick here .  Many of these cultures have myths and legends which point back to the dog star Sirius being the place where these ‘gods’ came from.  After the Flood, Nimrod reintroduces the mystery religion to mankind.  The holidays that the majority of mankind celebrates today, especially the holidays that come out of Roman Catholicism, trace back to these times.  When studying the origins of these holidays, all of them will point back to Nimrod.  Nimrod did not invent his ‘religion’, he was trying to reform the ‘golden age’ that came before the Flood so the rituals will ultimately trace back to the days of Noah.

The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom pg 25 states that the symbol of the Sirians (from Sirius) in Atlantis was a triangle, sometimes with an eye in the middle.  This all seeing-eye symbol traced through Egypt as the eye of Horus/Osiris/Ra/Isis which is what is seen on the back of the dollar bill.

On a statue to Isis the following was described “I am all that has been, that is, or shall be, and none among the mortal has hiterto taken off my veil.”

Isis=Diana…

The all-seeing eye, on a deeper level, connects to the pineal gland which was discussed above.

Interestingly, it is believed by some people such as Robert Bauval and Robert Temple that the Giza pyramids are a mirror image, the Earthly representation of the Belt of Orion.

Uriel’s Machine pg 137
“The word ‘Nephilim’ is of uncertain origin, but it has been observed by specialist scholars that the root Aramaic word nephila is the name of the constellation Orion, and therefore, Nephilim would seem to mean ‘those that are of Orion.’
…the Australian Aborigines identified that their own version of Watchers (the Nurrumbunguttias) had come to earth from Orion.”

*The ‘ark’ that landed in Egypt that the Dogons describe may trace back to the ‘mystic egg’ of Astarte…More on this in the section on Easter.

Two Babylon’s pg 106

Cupid’s Greek name is Eros, and he is armed with a bow and arrow; this was a real and lethal weapon in the ancient world.  Like Dionysusclick here , he was sometimes referred to as Eleutherios, “the liberator”.

Two Babylons pg 169
In the Church of Rome a new kind of devotion has of late been largely introduced, in which the beads play an important part, and which shows what new and additional strides in the direction of the old Babylonian Paganism the Papacy every day is steadily making. I refer to the “Rosary
of the Sacred Heart.” It is not very long since the worship of the “Sacred Heart” was first introduced; and now, everywhere it is the favourite worship. It was so in ancient Babylon, as is evident from the Babylonian system as it appeared in Egypt. There also a “Sacred Heart” was venerated. The “Heart” was one of the sacred symbols of Osiris when he was born again, and appeared as Harpocrates, or the infant divinity, * borne in the arms of his mother Isis.

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.

Lent

The forty dayss of Lent that precedes Easter traces back to the custom of weeping for Tammuz.  The ashes placed on the foreheads of believers in the shape of a cross traces back to this same false god.

Two Babylons pg 177

That which is now called the Christian crossclick here was originally no Christian emblem at all, but was the mystic Tau of the Chaldeans and Egyptians–the true original form of the letter T– the initial of the name of Tammuz–which, in Hebrew, radically the same as ancient Chaldee, as found on coins, was formed as in No. 1 of the accompanying woodcut (Fig. 43); and in Etrurian and Coptic, as in Nos. 2 and 3. That mystic Tau was marked in baptism on the foreheads of those initiated in the Mysteries, and was used in every variety of way as a most sacred symbol.

Tav in the foreheads.  Here is a perfect example of how the adversary counterfeitsclick here the Truth of the Scriptures.  In Ezekiel 9, true believers are marked with a mark which in Hebrew is the word תו (tav).

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
(tavah) a mark (tav) on the foreheads of the men who are groaning and are mourning over all the abominations that are done in her midst.

In ancient Hebrew the letter tav looked just like 2 crossed sticks.

The above verse is speaking of the mark of YHWH which is put on the righteous.  The mark of the beast is a direct counterfeit of this markclick here.

The Douay Rheims (Catholic translation) Bible translated Ezekiel 9:4 as such:

Eze 9:4  And the Lord said to him: Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem: and mark Thau upon the foreheads of the men that sigh, and mourn for all the abominations that are committed in the midst thereof.

Secret Teaching of All Ages pg 45
Candidates who successfully passed the Mithraic initiations were called Lions and were marked upon their foreheads with the Egyptian cross.

Secret Teaching of All Ages pg 182
The TAU cross was inscribed on the forehead of every person admitted into the Mysteries of Mithras. When a king was initiated into the Egyptian Mysteries, the TAU was placed against his lips. It was tattooed upon the bodies of the candidates in some of the American Indian Mysteries. To the Qabbalist, the TAU stood for heaven and the Pythagorean tetractys. The Caduceus of Hermes was an outgrowth of the TAU cross.

Mithra there, (in the kingdom of Satan,) sets his marks on the foreheads of his soldiers (Tertullian. The Prescription against Heretics, Chapter 40.)

Tertullian certainly writes that Mithras marks (signat) his soldiers on the forehead, but what ’sign’? Some writers have even speculated that this mark was the mark of the “Beast of Revelations,” as the numerological value of the Sun is 666!…

Mithratic…initiates…would henceforth have the Sun Cross on their foreheads. The similarity to the cross of ashes made on the forehead on the Christian Ash Wednesday is striking. Some have suggested this to be an example of the early Christians borrowing from the Mithratic cult; others suggest that both cults were drawing upon the same prototype (Nabarz P. The mysteries of Mithras: the pagan belief that shaped the Christian world. p. 36).

Weeping for Tammuz

Eze 8:13  And He said to me, You turn back, you shall see greater abominations which they are doing.
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.

Tammuz. This god can be traced back to the Sumerian Dumuzi, the god of the subterranean ocean and a shepherd deity, whose sister-consort, Inanna-Ishtar, descended into the lower world to bring him back to life. In his worship are similarities to that of Egyptian Osiris, the Canaanite Baal, and the Syrian Adonis. Gebal or Byblos, twenty-one miles north of Beirut, was the great seat of Adonis worship. The nightly death of the god, the god’s dying before the touch of winter, or the vernal god’s dying with the parched summer are variations on the theme of death and resurrection. Mourning for the god was followed by a celebration of resurrection (from The Wycliffe Bible Commentary, Electronic Database. Copyright (c) 1962 by Moody Press).

Babylon Mystery Religion, by Ralph Edward Woodrow page 139
Legend has it that Tammuz was killed by a wild boar when he was forty years old. Hislop points out that forty days–a day for each year Tammuz had lived on earth — were set aside to “weep for Tammuz.” In olden times these forty days were observed with weeping, fasting, and self chastisement — to gain anew his favor — so he would come forth from the underworld and cause spring to begin. This observance was known not only at Babylon, but also among the Phoenicians, Egyptians, Mexicans, and, for a time, even among the Israelites.

Tammuz Saturn connection

click here

The Osirian mysteries, the wailing for Tammuz, all refer to the transformation of Saturn during and following the Deluge. Osiris was not a king but the planet Saturn, Kronos of the Greeks, Tammuz of the Babylonians. The Babylonians called Saturn “the Star of Tammuz.”

Ashes, Phoenix & Resurrection

As seen above, the Phoenix is a symbol of resurrection.  The mythological bird who is engulfed in flames yet resurrects amidst the ashes of its old body.

This process is linked to the Philosopher’s Stone.

Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark pg 265

“They {Robert Hooke and Isaac Newton} knew that the Stone {Philosopher’s Stone} was directly related to higher degrees of consciousness and perception, while being represented by the legendary Phoenix which rises from destruction in a blaze of rebirth and new light.”

“In the romance of Parzival by the Bavarian knight Wolfram von Eschenbach, we read: ‘Around the end of the stone, an inscription in letters tells the name and lineage of those, be they maids or boys, who are called to make the journey of the Grail.  No one needs to read the inscription, for as soon as it has been read it vanishes.’  The stone being discussed here was said to be the ‘perfection of earthly paradise,’ with remarkable healing and anti-ageing properties.  It was called Lapis Elixis, a variant of Lapis Elixir, the alchemical Philosopher’s Stone.  The text continues: ‘By the power of that stone the Phoenix burns to ashes, but the ashes speedily restore him to life again.  Thus doth the Phoenix Destiny.”

Albert Pike associates the Great Secret with the discovery of the Alchemists “Philosopher’s Stone.”

Morals and Dogma pg 64
…Grand Arcanum,…that secret whose revelation would overturn Earth and Heaven.  Let no one expect us to give them its explanation!  He who passes behind the veil that hides this mystery, understands that it is in its very nature inexplicable, and that it is death to those who win it by surprise, as well as to him who reveals it.  This secret is the Royalty of the Sages, the Crown of the Initiate whom we see redescend victorious from the summit of Trials, in the fine allegory of Cebes. The Grand Arcanun makes him master of gold and the light, which are at bottom the same thing, he has solved the problem of the quadrature of the circle, he directs the perpetual movement, and he possesses the philosophical stone. Here the Adepts will understand us. There is neither interruption in the toil of nature, nor gap in her work. The Harmonies of Heaven correspond to those of Earth, and the Eternal Life accomplishes its evolutions in accordance with the same laws as the life of a dog. “God has arranged all things by weight, number, and measure,” says the Bible; and this luminous doctrine was also that of Plato.

Tetractys the Cross & the Philosophers stone

Secret Teaching of All Ages pg 182
The TAU cross was inscribed on the forehead of every person admitted into the Mysteries of Mithras. When a king was initiated into the Egyptian Mysteries, the TAU was placed against his lips. It was tattooed upon the bodies of the candidates in some of the American Indian Mysteries. To the Qabbalist, the TAU stood for heaven and the Pythagorean tetractys. The Caduceus of Hermes was an outgrowth of the TAU cross.
1. The Tetractys symbolized the four elements — earth, air, fire, and water.
2. The first four numbers also symbolized the harmony of the spheres and the Cosmos.
3. The four rows added up to ten, which was unity of a higher order (in decimal).
4. The Tetractys represented the organization of space:
1. the first row represented zero-dimensions (a point)
2. the second row represented one-dimension (a line of two points)
3. the third row represented two-dimensions (a plane defined by a triangle of three points)
4. the fourth row represented three-dimensions (a tetrahedron defined by four points)

A prayer of the Pythagoreans shows the importance of the Tetractys (sometimes called the “Mystic Tetrad”), as the prayer was addressed to it.

“Bless us, divine number, thou who generated gods and men! O holy, holy Tetractys, thou that containest the root and source of the eternally flowing creation! For the divine number begins with the profound, pure unity until it comes to the holy four; then it begets the mother of all, the all-comprising, all-bounding, the first-born, the never-swerving, the never-tiring holy ten, the keyholder of all”.

The Pythagorean oath also mentioned the Tetractys:

“By that pure, holy, four lettered name on high,
nature’s eternal fountain and supply,
the parent of all souls that living be,
by him, with faith find oath, I swear to thee.”

Pythagorean tetractys
The correspondence between the Shem ha-meforash and the Tetragrammaton (IHVH) is revealed when we apply another rule of gematria to the four-letter word

There are some who believe that the tetractys and its mysteries influenced the early kabbalists. A Hebrew Tetractys in a similar way has the letters of the Tetragrammaton (the four lettered name of God in Hebrew scripture) inscribed on the ten positions of the tetractys, from right to left. It has been argued that the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, with its ten spheres of emanation, is in some way connected to the tetractys, but its form is not that of a triangle.

Here we see a connection of the Sacred Name, the tetractys, & the cross on the forehead.  Again, a counterfeit is seen.

As seen in Ezekiel 9, the ‘tav’ is marked on the head of the righteous

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.

In the Book of Revelation it is seen that the sacred Name is marked in the foreheads of the righteous

Rev 14:1  And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion! And with Him were a hundred and forty four thousands, with the name of His Father having been written on their foreheads.
Rev 22:4  And they will see His face; and His name will be on their foreheads.

His Name is the Word
Rev 19:13  and having been clothed in a garment which had been dipped in blood. And His name is called The Word of God.

Rosicrucian symbolism

Here the Phoenix is seen with Rosicrucian symbology. The Phoenix is a symbol of resurrection as well as the coming antichrist kingdomclick here.  The Tree in the background is the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  The is a symbol of the great secret.  Rose gardens represent the Garden of Eden in esoteric thought.

This image is a direct counterfeit of Messiah saving Jerusalem.

Mat 23:37  Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing the prophets and stoning those sent to her. How often I desired to gather your children in the way a bird gathers her chicks under her wings! And you did not desire it.

St. Patrick’s Day

The Irish believe to have been descendants of the lost tribes of Israel via the ‘Tuatha de Danaan’.  The Tuatha de Danaaan were in reality Nephilim, as discussed above in the section on Groundhog’s Day.  European monarchs have used the lost tribes theory as justification and divine right to rule over their peoples as they claim to be descendants of King David.  The real reason they sat on their thrones could be a divine right to rule which traces back to the Nephilim.  This is discussed in more detail in part 11click here.

The Tribes – Yair Davidy pg 246

The father of Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) wrote that the Irish use a harp as a symbol since they believe they are descended from King David of Judah.

Davidy believes that Tuatha De Danaan means ‘People of Dan.”  He also states that the Fir Domnan (People of Domnan) also descended from the tribe of Dan.

Dan & Judah

The Tribes pg 257

“In the Land of Israel the Tribe of Dan in the south bordered Ephraim, Benjamin, and Judah.  The Danes had another section of their tribe in the northern Galilee surrounded by Asher, Naphtali, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.  That portion of Manasseh, adjoining Dan in the North on its eastern side was dominated by Gilead and within Gilead (who was the son of Machir son of Manasseh) was a band from JUDAH headed by YAIR (‘Jair in 1 Chronicles 2:18-23).  Also farther north in Cilicia (southeastern Turkey) the Dananu of Dan and the Yadi of Judah adjoined each other.  Thus, Dan and Judah were neighbors in both locations in the north as well as in the south of Israel.  In Jewish traditions Judah and Dan are often juxtapositioned.  Samson the superman hero came from the Tribe of Dan but his mother was from Judah. {Numbers Rabbah 1:10}.  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 either of the Tribe of Dan or Naphtali.  {Targum Jonathan 49:18; Genesis Rabbah 98:14}.  A lion represented both Judan and Dan, though Dan has additional symbols such as the snake and dragon.

The Tribes pg 262

“In Ulster there also exists a tradition of a connection with Judah.  The Jewish symbol known as the ‘Star of David’ appears on the flag of Ulster.

The celebrated ‘Red Hand’ badge of O’Neill was probably grounded on a theme in Gaelic mythology. It may have originally symbolized the pre-christian Celtic sun-god Nuadu – ‘he who dwells in the clouds’ {This is connected to the Tuatha de Danaan as will be seen below}. The latter’s well-known designation, Argatlámh signified ‘shining Hand’ {This connects to the leprechuan/fairy/shining ones as seen below} and his alias Bolg had a son, mythologically speaking named Lámhdearg-Labraid Red Hand. Nuadu and Bolg were appellations of the Érainn or Ivernic, sun-god, the equivalent term in the Gaelic language being Nél.

Stone of Destiny

The Lia Fáil/Stone of Destiny is linked to the above beliefs.  It is said to be the stone that Jacob anointed at Bethel and was taken to Ireland by Jeremiah during the Babylonian exile.  However, again, this stone points back to the Nephilim.

In Celtic mythology, the Lia Fáil is said to have been brought to Ireland in antiquity by the semi-divine race known as the Tuatha Dé Danann.

Ultimately this stone points to the future, or perhaps one of the future antichrist beasts who rule over man.

The Book of Tephi describes in detail the journey Jeremiah took with Teia Tephi, The Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny) and The Ark of The Covenant from Jerusalem to Ireland, via Tanis in Egypt then on to Gibraltar (where she was proclaimed queen of the Gadite Israelites who live there); Breogan in Spain; Cornwall and eventually landing at Howth, near Dublin, in Ireland on the 18th. of June 583 B.C.

The Book then goes on to describe many of the significant events which occurred at that time in history and are associated with her journey from Jerusalem to Ireland. It is also full of Prophecies about many of the major events which have occurred in the world between her and our time (2,500 years); including the First-Coming of Christ and the colonizing of the world by the British Empire. The Book also gives some very significant prophecies about the times we now live in.

Perhaps the most relevant of her Prophecies, which is the only one in “The Book of Tephi, queen of Tara and Gibraltar” that remains to be fulfilled, is about this (our) time in history when she predicts that she would be recovered from her subterranean tomb on The Hill of Tara, in Co. Meath, Ireland; along with The Ark of The Covenant and once again bring peace and unity to all of Ireland as she had done two and a half thousand years ago; and that Christ would come out of her tomb with her, to be inaugurated King of all of Ireland, on the Stone of Destiny, at Tara, and this time, also bring peace and unity to the whole world.

The connection between the ark of the covenant, Jacob’s stone & DNA have been discussed already in this study so there is no need to repeat that information here.  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 corruption of DNA/the word.  The Stone of Destiny is a good reference point to understanding this.  Messiah Yahshua is the true King of Yisrael.  His kingdom is not of the earth (yet).

Psa 89:36  His Seed shall be forever, and his throne as the sun before Me.
Psa 89:37  Like the moon, it shall be forever; and a faithful witness in the sky. Selah.

The kings and queens that sit on the earthly ‘throne of David’ will be used by the counterfeiter to bring forth a counterfeit kingdom. The false regathering has already occurred which originated from this throne in Britain.  Next step, the ark of the covenant revealed and the false temple built where the false Messiah will rule over false Israelclick here in the false state of Israelclick here .

The Grail connection

The Merovingian bloodlineclick here and Holy Grail click here teach of this earthly kingdom that descends from King David through Adonai Yahshua.

The Grail -William Henry
“By strict definition “the Grail” is a Philosopher’s or Alchemist’s Stone that can turn one element into another. The word ‘grail’ is phonetically similar to ‘grael’, old French for stone. As all Grail knights learn, the Grail is also known as the  ‘Stone of God’ that fell from Heaven.

In ancient Irish (Iris) religion and mythology Tara was also the sacred home for the Ari (later the Ari-ish or Irish) who ranked below the Illi gods, yet above the people. Ireland (Ari-Land) takes its name from the Aris (lion / ili-on – in Hebrew) or Arians. Ireland is considered the Great Motherland of the Aryan race, otherwise known as Atlantisclick here, Thuleclick here
or Tula – William Henry (The Secret Throne of the Illuminati Discovered)

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 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.’

In medieval times, the line of Messianic descent was defined by the French word Sangréal – deriving from the two words Sang Réal, meaning ’Blood Royal’. This was the Blood Royal of Judah: the kingly line of David which progressed through Jesus and his heirs. In English translation, the definition Sangréal became ’San Graal’ (as in San Francisco). When written more fully it was ’Saint Grail’ – the word ’saint’, of course, relating to ’holy’. Then, by a natural linguistic process, came the more romantically familiar term, ’Holy Grail’.  Laurence Gardner – Bloodline of the Holy Grail

The Imperial and Royal Dragon Court of the Dragon Sovereignty -Nicholas De Vere

“When the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court was reconstituted by King Sigismund in 1408 as the Societas Draconis, it was based upon an ancient bloodline tradition which Sigismund assumed that he had inherited from his presumed Egyptian and Scythian ancestors through the Pictish, Dragon Princess Maelasanu of Northumbria and the Ancient and Original Angevin Royal House of Vere of Anjou, the Imperial Dukes of Angiers.

This line had descended through the Tuatha de Danaan (the Dragon Kings of Anu) on the one hand, and the Egyptian Dragon Dynasty of Sobek on the other. The latter strain included the bloodline of the Davidic House of Judah who married into the descent of the Merovingian Kings of the Franks.”

False Zion

“In Celtic, Zion means Mount of Stone or Fortress. Huge monoliths and piles of stones were positioned to form circles. The latter were called Si’un or Caers and were placed on top of hills or mounds. . . On May-eve and November 1st the Druids built great fires on the Zions, so that for miles around the flames on the top of the mound could be seen by the people. . . The Chief Druid stood in the centre of the circle during the service that approached a large central stone which was called… the Stone of the Covenant… In Ireland it was called Bethel, the house of God.” (The Sign of the Dove – Elizabeth Van Buren)

The study of this bloodline and ‘holy grail’ points to a Tribe of Dan connection.  Early believers in Messiah wrote of the antichrist beast coming from the tribe of Dan and history shows that Dan mixed with the Nephilim.

Ireland Atlantis connection

In ancient Irish (Iris) religion and mythology Tara was also the sacred home for the Ari (later the Ari-ish or Irish) who ranked below the Illi gods, yet above the people. Ireland (Ari-Land) takes its name from the Aris (lion / ili-on – in Hebrew) or Arians. Ireland is considered the Great Motherland of the Aryan race, otherwise known as Atlantisclick here , Thule or Tula – William Henry (The Secret Throne of the Illuminati Discovered)

Through the study of the works of James Churchward and  Mark Pinkham (The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom) we can further trace the lineage of Dann back to Lemuria and  Atlantis.

“….We also find among traditional Assyrian eponyms of royal names the combination Ashur-bel-Ka’ini (“Ashur, lord of the Ka’inites”); and the Assyrian scribes paralleled this with the Sumerian ASHUR-EN.DUNI (“Ashur is lord of Duni”), implying that the Ka’ini (“The people of Kain”) and the Duni (“The people of Dun”) were one and the same; and thus reaffirming the biblical Cain and Land of Nun or  Dun.

The  Book of Dzyan tells of the Sarpa or Great dragons that came from the skies to bring civilization to the world. The deluge that ended the Golden Age wiped out a race of ‘giants’ but the serpent gods survived and returned to rule. They were described as having the face of a human, but the tail of a dragon.

Jame Churchward also described a reptilian type race such as what is described by the Dzyan and Indian Hindu. Churchward said the Nagas came from Lemuria.

Like the Nommo from Sirius and the Annedoti of Babylonia legend, the Nagas were said to have a close connection to water and entered their underground centers through wells, lakes and rivers. The Nagas were said to be the offspring from the interbreeding of humans with the serpent gods.

According to Indian Epics the reptilian Nagas intermingled with the white people and although their relationship was often one of conflict and distrust, the two interbred to produce a reptilian-mammal hybrid that became the ‘Aryan kings!’. These are the ‘divine’ royal bloodlines or demi-gods and are the same bloodlines that ruled ancient Sumer.

Other Atlantean/Lemurian colonists were known as the Pelasgians (People of the Sea) the Danaans and the female Amazons. The Pelasgians worshipped the serpent Moon goddess Dana, later Diana (Artemis), and then later Atlantean goat god called Pan. They first landed on the Peloponnesus in Greece and settled in Arcadia, according to ancient Greek records. Arcadia has always been a sacred place to the Illuminati bloodlines and was apparently a name for Atlantis.

The Dananns left Atlantis to settle in Asia Minor (now Turkey), Greece and the islands of Aegean.

The name Danaans derived from their serpent Moon goddess, Dana or Diana. The Danaans made the headquarters of their serpent worshipping culture on the island of Rhodes, a name that originates from a Syrian word for serpent…

The Danaans also settled on Cyprus and in ancient times it was known as Ia-Dan or the “Isle of Dan”. The name of the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea, a place so important to the Druids, has the same origin, no doubt. The Tauras Mountains in Turkey, the Balearic Islands and Syria were other Danaan settlements and they traveled from Atlantis to Britain where they became known as Tuatha de Danaan or the “People of the Sea” .

http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sumer_anunnaki/esp_sumer_annunaki13.htm

Tara is the prehistoric home of the magical   Tuatha Dé Danaan, who are considered to be direct descendents or reincarnations of the biblical Shining Ones (Elohim), the creator gods. W.Y.Evans-Wentz notes that they are described as a race of majestic appearance and marvelous beauty, in form human, yet in nature divine.

The Sumerians called them Anunnakiclick here (literally NUN, ‘fish’, of AKI, ‘light’), which explains why the Irish called them the ‘Lords of Light’ or Illi. They were led by E.A. and brought with them four treasures click here or power tools:

* the (S)tone of Destiny
* the (S)word of Destiny
* the Cup of Destiny
* the Staff or Spear of Destiny

These treasures were housed in the so-called Cave of Treasures, inside the Mountain of God, where burns a perpetual flame. Tara was considered the  Mountain of God, as well as the Illi’s gateway or Ish-Tar Gate to the etheric Otherworld. Passage tombs dot the surrounding countryside. The passage tombs or mounds are called  Sidhe (pronounced ‘she’), a pun on the She People or  Shining Ones (the She-Ning Ones) who adored Ana, the Great Mother of All Living.

The Stone of Ana or ‘light’ at Tara Hill is believed to be the same as the stone of Luz (‘light’) upon which Jacob laid his head and subsequently saw a ladder reaching into heaven.

The shamrock

The shamrock symbology traces back to the ’3 orbs’/ Philosopher’s Stone of the Danaan.

The mythology of the Danaan indicates they had the ability to control the light of the sun through the power of a magical blue stone of miraculous powers. This stone forms the basis for Irish mythology.

E.A. IN IRELAND

E.A. presided over the Tara assembly as the sun god Fin, a Druid in strangely flowered garments, and with a double-pointed headdress and bearing in his hand a book. Fin’s two-headed miter of fishy formclick here (a play on ‘fin’), his upright rod, spotted or checkered garment and basket in hand, are symbols that are easily recognizable in the Sumerian depiction of E.A. presented here.

His column (i, eye) or pillar of Tara (‘enlightenment’) is remembered as the Tree of the Wisdom of Life of numerous traditions.

E.A. is typified as both the pupil in the eye, with wings and a tail, and as the wisdom-bearing serpent who dwelled within the Tree.

E.A. led the Anunnaki in search of the “blue stones that cause ill,” meaning illumination, luminescence, enlightenment. He found them at a place called Arili (Ireland?).

Sumerian myth romanticized by Zecharia Sitchin says Enki was a genetic scientist who came from the mysterious, and presently controversial, Planet Xclick here . The blue stones symbolize the exotic ‘missing’ or ‘hidden’ (‘black’) matter of the universe known as the Philosopher’s Stone or the Black Stone.

Crystallized into Earth density this black stone shifts its vibration into blue stones (actually tones).

The cluster of three orbs symbolize them, just as they do the Word or Life Force of God. When a human places themselves in resonance with the blue stone’s Life Force it transforms them from a human into a god.

Both Irish and Iraqi mythology revolve around the secret teachings of the blue stones of E.A. In ancient Irish religion and mythology Tara was the sacred home for the Ari (later the Ari-ish or Irish) who ranked below the Illi gods, yet above the people. Ireland (Ari-Land) takes its name from the Aris or Arians. Ireland is considered the Great Motherland of the Aryan race, otherwise known as Atlantis, Thule or Tula.

Aryan or Ari-an is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘noble’. The concept of the Aryan race has been wildly misinterpreted. The root of the misunderstanding is in the Sumerian claim that E.A. and the Pure Lady Ninhursag (Mari) cloned the first model of human as a slave race. Into the blood of a second ‘advanced’ human, the Ari or Illi, they put sacred knowledge.

He then separated this new human from the others, taking them to an island home, Poseidon/Atlantis, of which he was the Pa-Tara (father) and founder, the Potei-don or ‘Lord of Wisdom’.

His half-brother Enlil, who sought to keep humanity at the level of dim-bulb, Earth-bound slaves, opposed him. Tara is, conceivably, one of E.A.’s laboratories of enlightenment and the place where he brought ‘the Children of Atlantis’, the lost tribe of Enki, after their banishment by Enlil. Irish mythology insists the secrets of E.A. and his lost tribe remain hidden beneath the soil of Tara.

The cluster of three orbs symbolize them, just as they do the Word or Life Force of God. When a human places themselves in resonance with the blue stone’s Life Force it transforms them from a human into a god.

This connects to the mark of the beast.  The shamrock and the Ivy are very much the same.  The ivyclick here is a symbol of the mark of the beast and points to the same thing as the ‘three orbs’.  Man becoming ‘god.’  The fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

http://www.aestheteka.com/Mark%20of%20the%20Beast.htm

The Triquetra symbol above is a composed of three Vesica Piscii, the holy symbol of the Pythagorean Christos.
It is composed of three ‘almond-shaped’ icthyi, each with a height to width ratio of 1.73205, which is the square root of three. This ratio gave rise to the Divine number 153 (the complete mathematical ratio being 265:153, the ratio of whole numbers under 1000, which approximated the square root of 3.) 153 is the number of fish Yahshua caught in the Gospel of John 21:11.

Joh 21:5  Then Jesus said to them, Children, do you not have anything to eat? They answered Him, No.
Joh 21:6  And He said to them, Cast the net into the right side of the boat and you will find.
Joh 21:7  Then they cast, and they no longer had the strength to draw, from the multitude of the fish. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, It is the Lord. Then hearing that it is the Lord, Simon Peter girded on his coat (for he was naked) and threw himself into the sea.
Joh 21:8  And the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, only about two hundred cubits, dragging the net of the fish.
Joh 21:9  Then when they went up on the land, they saw a coal fire lying, and a fish lying on it, and bread.
Joh 21:10  Jesus said to them, Bring from the little fish which you caught now.
Joh 21:11  Simon Peter went up and dragged the net onto the land, full of big fish, a
hundred and fifty three. And though being so many, the net was not torn.

Sons of Elohim ‘Bnai Elohim’ is 153
This is what it all comes down to.  Being sons of Elohim through faith in Messiah.  Being ‘reborn’ into His image.  Or being sons of god through the tree of knowledge.  Being ‘reborn’ into the image of the beast.

Passover also has the gematria of 153

The blood on the doorposts was a sign unto Yisrael.

Exo 12:13  And the blood shall be a sign to you, on the houses where you are. And I will see the blood, and I will pass over you. And the plague shall not be on you to destroy, when I strike in the land of Egypt.
Rev 1:5  even from Jesus Christ the Faithful Witness, the First-born out of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him loving us and washing us from our sins by His blood,
1Co 5:7  Then purge out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For also Christ our Passover was sacrificed for us.

You have either the mark/signature of Yah or the mark/signature of the adversary

Smith Bible Dictionary:  Seal (Heb. Hotham; Gr. sphragis).  The seal takes the place of the signature in the east. A name or device, well known as belonging to a certain person, was engraved on a seal of a ring, or on a small cylinder, and this was stamped on the papyrus, or parchment, with ink, or was pressed on a piece of clay, or wax, which was attached to the document.
Doors of tombs, or houses, or treasuries, or any place that was to be guarded from intrusion, were closed, and a piece of clay stuck over the fastening, and this was impressed with the seal of the keeper or owner, so that the least meddling with the clay would break it

Etheridge Aramaic translation
Rev 13:16  And he caused all, small and great, and rich and poor, and sons of freedom and slaves, to have given to them a
signature upon their right hands, or upon their foreheads;
2Ti 2:19  But the true foundation of Aloha standeth; and it hath this signature: And the Lord knoweth them who are his. And, Let every one who invoketh the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.

The Triquetra/Triskela is related to the ‘sacred spiral.’

Triple Spiral

Triple spiral visible on entrance stone at Newgrange

Triple spiral visible on entrance stone at Newgrange

The triple spiral or triskele is a Celtic and pre-Celtic symbol found on a number of Irish Megalithic and Neolithic sites, most notably inside the Newgrange passage tomb, on the entrance stone, and on some of the curbstones surrounding the mound.

Believed by many to be an ancient symbol of pre-Celtic and Celtic beliefs, the triple spiral appears in various forms in pre-Celtic and Celtic art, with the earliest examples having been carved on pre-Celtic stone monuments, and later examples found in the Celtic Christian illuminated manuscripts of Insular art. The triple spiral was possibly the precursor to the later triskele design found in the manuscripts.

The god Manannán is probably most often the one symbolized by the triskele, though some also use it for the goddess Brighidclick here.
This structure is called the spiral of life and was found in the remnants of an old temple from the Bronze Age in Ireland. The sign is drawn in one single line without beginning or end.

According to Uriel’s Machine by Knight and Lomas (2003) the triple spiral may represent the nine month period of human pregnancy, since the sun takes a fourth of a year to go from the celestial equator (an equinox) to extreme north or south declination (a solstice), and vice versa. During each three-month period, the sun’s path across the sky appears to form a closely-wound quasi-helical shape, which can be likened to a spiral, so that three spirals could represent nine months, providing an explanation for a link between fertility and the triple-spiral symbol.  The circle, spiral and wheel are all powerful symbols representing the cycle of life, death and rebirth, including the seasons of the year.

Mark Jordan -
The most common form of the triskele Celtic symbol was found on a tomb from the Neolithic period, at Newgrange, near the town of Drogheda. The Neolithic period signaled the rise of stone tools, organized villages with crop growing and the presence of crafts such as weaving and pottery. This period occurred about 3200 BC at Newgrange where the Celtic symbol was found, and occurred at different times in other parts of the world. Scholars and old stories from the Newgrange area tell how the symbol may stand for the pregnancy cycle, as related to the sun. Legend says that Christianity in Ireland started there. Perhaps the tri-spiral symbol and the ideals of Christianity can be compared. The Newgrange tomb specifically was built to allow sun to shine into it during seasonal solstice periods. The sun was important to the ancient cultures. Since the sun forms somewhat of a clockwise spiral form Eat to West every three months and there are 9 months in the average pregnancy, the Triskele shows three spirals tightly interlaced as in a comforting womb. The Triskele spirals appear to be in a clockwise fashion as well.

There is another possibility as to the meaning of the Triskele. The Newgrange tomb was said to have been built for the ancient king Dagda Mor of the Tuatha De Danann tribe. This king had three sons. Perhaps each spiral stood for each son.

In the Christian era St. Patrick used the shamrock to instruct the people in the doctrine of the Trinity and in earlier days the Druids used the oak for the same purpose.  They sought a tree having two principal arms springing laterally from the upright stem, roughly in the form of a cross.  Upon the right branch they cut the name Hesus; upon the middle or upright stem Taranis; upon the left branch Belenis; over this they cut the name of God- Thauclick here.

Tree, Branch, Shamrock connection

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 Ivyclick here , became the name of Bacchus.

THE SUN-KING: 666 = A (111×6), THERION (Beast), ANKH-AF-NA-KHONSV(T), Sorath (Spirit of the Sun), and Shemesh IHVH (the Sun of Tetragrammaton). “666 is the Most Holy Number of the Sun” (according to them). It is symbolized by the letter Shin made of three Vavs (=666). Shin is the letter of Path 31 on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life and 31=AL (The All). 666 is the mystic number of all the Paths of The Concealed Glory, for there are 36 Paths within the Tree of Life, 32 known, while four remain secret. 666 is also the occult number of the Hexagram, another symbol of the Sun, for a single line of the Hexagram contains three equal parts each of which may be represented by the number one, so that every line can be symbolized by the number 111. There are six lines in all, making 111×6=666, the most Holy Number of the Sun.

Six Hundred is the number of Evil personified. Sixty is the number of the Hebrew letter Samekh, which is the letter of the Holy Guardian Angel, the Adam Kadmon, {Adam Kadmon represents the new man, homo-noeticus, the next step in man’s “evolution”} (or Sun-King), the Solar Self within Man. Six is the number of Man, making 666 to convey a Evil Man who has as his symbol, the Sun. {666 is a number of a man but also a beast (angel)… Six angles of 60 degrees each equals 360 degrees, and 360 is the number of the Hebrew letter Shin spelled in full. Shin is the letter of the Sun and of 666. The most ancient symbol of the Sun is the Celtic triple knot or Spiral. The Triquetra is one form, the Celtic Triskel is another.

Celtic Cross

Bonfires & Crosses

Familiar with the Irish language and culture, Patrick chose to incorporate traditional ritual into his lessons of Christianity instead of attempting to eradicate native Irish beliefs. For instance, he used bonfires to celebrate Easter since the Irish were used to honoring their gods with fire. He also superimposed a sun, a powerful Irish symbol, onto the Christian cross to create what is now called a Celtic cross, so that veneration of the symbol would seem more natural to the Irish.

http://celtarts.com

There is a legend of how St. Patrick when preaching to some soon-to-be converted heathens was shown a sacred standing stone that was marked with a circle that was symbolic of the moon goddess. Patrick made the mark of a Latin cross through the circle and blessed the stone making the first Celtic Cross. This legend implies that the Saint was willing to make ideas and practices that were formerly Druid into Christian ideas and practices. This is consistent with the belief that he converted and ordained many Druids to lives as Christian priests.

Wikipedia.org
Combining the cross and the circle, it is the simplest conceivable representation of the union of opposed polarities in the Western world.  It often stood for the sun and for the tree of life.  It may be compared to the yin-yang symbol of the Eastern world.

Uriel’s Machine pg 377
“The basic symbolism of these crosses, like the ancient pillar stones, is the world axis, the link between heaven and earth, the point about which the heavens revolve.”

The celtic cross combines different aspects of the mark of the beast.

Sun worshipclick here

1Ki 10:14  And the weight of the gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and sixty six talents of gold,

The phrase shesh ma’ot sheesheem vashash kekar (666 talents) acronomically add up to 666 as well.  Acronomically this phrase this teaches that 666 is the sun YHWH.  The Scriptures refer to the sun as a descriptive tool for YHWH.  The adversary counterfeited this idea and this is why we see sun worship prevalent in all the pagan mystery religions.

Psa 84:11  For YHWH God is a sun and shield; YHWH will give grace and glory; He will withhold nothing good from those who walk in integrity.
Mal 4:2  But to you who fear My name,
the Sun of Righteousness shall rise up, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall.

The adversary counterfeits the Most High

Isa 14:14  I will rise over the heights of the clouds; I will be compared* to the Most High.
*the adversary does not just want attempts to appear just like the Messiah.  This is a key to understanding what the mark of the beast is and who the antichrist is.  The word used by Yeshayahu is damah meaning the resemblance of a son to his father which is passed down through blood (DNA).

Another connection between the sun and 666 is the “magic square of the sun”.

Babylonian astrologers divided the starry heavens into 36 constellations (ten days each). These were represented by different amulets called “Sigilla Solis,” or the Sun Seal. These amulets were worn by the pagan priests and they contained all the numbers from 1 to 36. By these figures they claimed to be able to foretell future events. These amulets were usually made of gold, yellow being the sun color. While being carried, these amulets were wrapped in yellow silk, as it was thought that the bearer would thus receive the beneficent powers believed to emanate from that jewel. Adding the numbers of any column either horizontally or vertically, and also the two diagonals crossing the square, the total is the same — 111. The sum of the six columns, either horizontally or vertically, is 666. The illustrations below taken from actual amulets in the Berlin Museum.

“The second illustration is also a solar seal, but it honors the star Basilisco, which was the diminutive form of the Greek basileus (king), thus meaning the same as the Latin regulus. Now, Regulus is the only first-magnitude star in the constellation of Leo. The sun and the moon are again clearly seen on this amulet, and on the reverse side is the same arrangement of numerals, with the actual figure given of the total 666.”

[The lower coin shows the conjunction of the Sun, Moon and the star Regulus in the constellation of Leo the Lion that occurred on 19 August 1705.

Table #1 as illustrated above is also referred to in numerology as the magic Square of the Sun. There are similar magic squares for Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon, all of which have been known for centuries.

On pages 197 and 198 of The Two Babylons, Alexander Hislop wrote:

The same sign of the cross that Rome now worships was used in the Babylonian Mysteries, was applied by Paganism to the same magic purposes, was honoured with the same honours. That which is now called the Christian cross was originally no Christian emblem at all, but was the mystic Tau of the Chaldeans and Egyptians–the true original form of the letter T–the initial of the name of Tammuz–which, in Hebrew, radically the same as ancient Chaldee, as found on coins, was formed as in No. 1 of the accompanying woodcut (Fig. 43)

and in Etrurian and Coptic, as in Nos. 2 and 3. That mystic Tau was marked in baptism on the foreheads of those initiated in the Mysteries*, [Tertullian, De Proescript. Hoeret. cap.40, vol. ii. p.54, and Note. The language of Tertullian implies that those who were initiated by baptism in the Mysteries were marked on the forehead in the same way, as his Christian country-men in Africa, who had begun by this time to be marked in baptism with the sign of the cross.] and was used in every variety of way as a most sacred symbol. To identify Tammuz with the sun it was joined sometimes to the circle of the sun, as in No. 4; sometimes it was inserted in the circle, as in No. 5.

The ‘tree of life’ of the heathen,  which is in reality the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

The Greek alphabet comes from the Phoenician alphabet which, in essence, is the same as Paleo Hebrew.  χξς would be rendered in Phoenician as:

χ = which is a picture of crossed sticks

ξ= which is a picture of a thorn or branch

ς= Stigma means a mark and like the letter ξ was used to represent a coiled serpent.

Hence, the pictograph meaning of the χξς is a serpent on the branch of a tree.  It is the equivalent of the tree of knowledge of good and evil click here.

Hitler, a modern day type of antichrist beast, is linked to the above ideas through the symbology of the Nazis.  The swastika is another form of the celtic cross/sun cross.  The Nazis also used the ‘iron cross’ symbol which is yet another way of portraying the sun cross.  Hitler believed in the hollow earth theory of the Vril society which speaks of the Aryan race of Atlantis and the ‘awakening’ of the superman within the blood of the Aryan.  Hitler is discussed in more detail in part 11click here.

Leprechaun

Wikipedia.org

A leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán) is a type of fairy in Irish folklore, usually taking the form of an old man, clad in a red or green coat, who enjoys partaking in mischief. Like other fairy creatures, leprechauns have been linked to the Tuatha Dé Danann* of Irish mythology.

According to local Irish folklore, the history of leprechauns has its beginning in magic. The general belief is that leprechauns are descendants of the Tuatha De Danaan, who were the people of the Goddess Danu. The Tuatha De Danaan were a group of magical beings led by Lugh the Long-Armed Warrior, who used a rainbow as a sling weapon.

*Tuatha Dé Danannclick here were the nephilimclick here.

Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions – James Bonwick

By far the most interesting of the peoples that formerly inhabited Ireland were the Tuaths, or Tuatha de Danaans, or Dananns. There is much mystery about them in Irish traditions. They were men, gods, or fairies.

Although Ireland holds the tale of the leprechauns, these little people can be found in almost all folk lore around the world.  The Native American Indians tell of a time when the Giants appeared on the Earth, ‘Little People’ went into Inner Worlds of ‘Mother Earth’click here .

One Irish author, Vallencey, has said,

“The Church Festivals themselves, in our Christian Calendar, are but the direct transfers from the Tuath de Danaan ritual. Their very names in Irish are identically the same as those by which they were distinguished by that earlier race.”

The earliest known reference to the leprechaun appears in the medieval tale known as the Echtra Fergus mac Léti (English: Adventure of Fergus son of Léti).

The text contains an episode in which Fergus mac Léti, King of Ulster, falls asleep on the beach and wakes to find himself being dragged into the sea by three lúchorpáin. He captures his abductors, who grant him three wishes in exchange for release.

Three wishes connects back to the Arabian tales of geniesclick here.

In Medieval Jewish, Islamic and Christian legends, the Seal of Solomon was a magical signet ring said to have been possessed by King Solomon (or Sulayman in the Islamic version), which variously gave him the power to command demons (or jinni), or to speak with animals. In one of the Arabian Nights’ Entertainments, an evil jinn is described as being imprisoned in a copper bottle for 1,800 years by a lead seal stamped by the ring. Other, later books (Pseudomonarchia Daemonum) manage to fit far more demons in the bottle (Wikipedia, Seal of Solomon)

Story of Aladdin

Aladdin lamp

Aladdin lamp

In the story  the Fisherman fishes up the container of Satan stamped with the Seal of Solomon. Upon opening, smoke arises and a beast emerges. Satan is a Jinni (Genie) contained in a bottle or lamp or bottomless pit or prison of some type.

The first thing out of the Jinni’s mouth is the declaration that Sulayman (Solomon) is the prophet of God. Sulayman being dead 1800 years ago and that we are in the last days of the world. The Jinni offers the Fisherman a wish of choosing how to die. The Jinni declares that it is among the heretical Jann and that it sinned against Sulayman. The Jinni declares an alliance with Sakhr al Janni. The Janni refused to obey True Faith (God) and was locked in the cucumber jar. The jar was sealed with the Most High Name (The Name of God)….

Children of the Matrix pg 100

‘The tales of underground worlds inhabited by fairies, elves, goblins, demons, dragons, and other non-human communities abound in folklore across the world and they were often known as the ‘shining ones’, the same as the Annunaki and the ‘gods’ under other names in ancient texts.  The name in Norse folklore for this underground world of caverns, tunnel networks, and even vast cities, is Niflheim {Notice the connection to the Hebrew word Nephilimclick here , referring back to Genesis 6}.  The Norse people said that Niflheim was ruled by the death goddess, Hel.  These ‘fairy folk’ in all their names and guises were said to interbreed with humans to create hybrid bloodlines, abduct surface people, drink human blood, and take human reproductive materials.”

Michael Mott – Caverns, Cauldrons, and Concealed Creatures

“To remove all doubt as to their relationship with Norse hidden-folk and Indian Nagas alike, they shunned the sunlight, and often seemed interested in crossbreeding their own bloodlines with those of human beings, or even in crossbreeding their ‘livestock’ or fairy cattle, horses, hounds and so forth with the surface species which were most compatible.  The goblin-dwarf, Rumplestiltskin, in his lust to have the human baby and its genetic bounty, is just one example of this in folklore.  The elves took a regular interest in human affairs – weddings, births, deaths, (bloodlines), the success of crops and livestock, and so forth – but only for their own selfish interests.   They seemed to be overly-concerned with genetic and biological diversity, and they pilfered livestock, crops, and human genes via theft or cross-species liaison whenever they saw fit to do so.  The elves are genetically depicted as extremely fair-haired and fair-skinned.”

Children of the Matrix pg 268

‘The so-called greys of modern UFO legend appear to be the same as the beings known as the Galatur and Ushabtiu who abducted humans from underground in Sumerian and Egyptian myths, and the folklore of the Shetland islands off the north of Scotland referred to the ‘little men’ who abducted humans as ‘grey neighbors’ and the greys.”

Children of Matrix pg 269

“Irish legends tell of the sexual relationships between the ancient Milesians and the Tuatha de Danaan, the Irish ‘underground gods’ who fled into the Earth and settled there.  St. Patrick, who ‘removed the snakes from Ireland’, is said to have seen one of these underground people, a ‘fairy woman’, coming out of the cave of Cruachan.  When St. Patrick asks a Milesian about her, he replies: ‘She is of the Tuatha de Danaan who are unfading…and I am of the sonof Mil [human Irish], who are perishable and fade away’.”

“Michael Mott summarizes here the common attributes of the underground peoples of global folklore: ‘They are mostly reptilian or reptilian humanoids or ‘fair’ and Nordic; they are telepathic with superior mental powers; they can shape-shift and create illusions; they want to interbreed with humans and need human blood, flesh, and reproductive materials; they have advanced technology; they have the secret of immortality; they can fly, either by themselves or with their technology; they mostly have a malevolent agenda for humans; they cannot survive for long in direct sunlight; they have been banished from the surface world or are in hiding from surface people and/or the Sun; they want to keep their treasures, knowledge, and true identity a secret; they covertly manipulate events on the surface world; they have surface humans working for them through the priesthoods, cults, and secret societies; they have putrid smell like ‘sulphur and brimstone’.”

Children of the Matrix pg 178

“Sir Laurence Gardner, the head of the Royal Dragon Court and Order says that the ‘Dragon Bloodlines’ have been called the Elven Race and terms like elf, fairy, and pixie all symbolise the ‘representatives of various castes withing the kingly succession’ “

Notice the connection.  Leprechauns trace back to the Tuatha de Danaan.  The Tuatha de Danaan trace back to the Nephilim of old.  There are those who connect the Tuatha de Danaan to the British kings as seen above.  Here we see a strong connection to the Merovingian bloodline teaching that has become mainstream in recent years.  Merovee was said to be a son of both Poseidon and Messiah Yahshua.  The Nephilim, Davidic bloodline connection.  Over and over again it is seen in these pagan holidays the connection to the antichrist kingdom.

Camelot Revisited

http://www.cabiz.net/zolaric/camelot.htm

The Shining Ones’ dimension on the Tor (Gwyn ap Nudd’s Fairy castle) may be accessed at particular times of the year when the veils between worlds are very thin. It is said that Glastonbury is a place of emergence for the Fifth World (New Jerusalem) where people enter into the earth at the end of an age and from which they emerge at the beginning of a new world. Many believe that a blessed moment of the highest of vibrations is taking place in this physical realm.

Legend has it that Camelot will return when needed along with the good leadership of King Arthur, who is legend to be one of the Shining Ones. The Holy Grail, like the Celts’ holy Cauldron of Regeneration, connotes rebirth. A birthing of Christ Consciousness, empowerment, love that “passeth all understanding”, a new grace, a Light-body of incredible proportions, and a balanced sacred Earth are close at hand. Connecting to the Divine is our birth right.”

St. Patricks day is a good source of understanding the nature of the enemy.  On the surface this holiday and its origins do not seem sinister.  On the surface the holiday does not seem to trace back to any pagan feasts, in fact it seems to be a remembrance of a man who sought to spread the Gospel to the heathen.  However, by digging deeper one can see that St. Patrick did not truly preach the Gospel, but took the methodology of the Roman Catholic Church to whom he belonged and took the customs and beliefs of the heathen of Ireland and amalgamated them into Christian beliefs.  A look at Irish history sheds light on the concept of True Israel versus false Israel.  True Israel walks in covenant relationship with Adonai YHWH by faith in Messiah Yahshua.  False Israel relies on genealogies that trace back to ancient Israel while mixing and mingling the blood of non-Israelites and mixing and mingling the beliefs of Israel and the heathens around them.  True Israel seeks the Kingdom that comes from above, who’s King is Adonai Yahshua.  False Israel seeks the kingdom of this earth, who’s king is a fleshly descendant of King David.

Php 3:20  For our citizenship is in Heaven, from where we also wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Php 3:21  who will transform our body of humiliation, for it to be conformed to His body of glory, according to the working of Him to be able even to subject all things under Himself.

This is what it comes down to.  Our citizenship can be to this world which will lead to taking the mark of the beast when the fallen angels come to earth appearing as the angels of Messiah Yahshua to bring man to his ‘next step in evolution’, transforming him into a beast like unto the antichrist.  Or our citizenship can be from heaven where we wait for the return of Adonai Yahshua who will come with His angels and gather us from the four corners of the earth where we will be transformed into His Image in the twinkling of an eye.

Easter

click hereclick here

Easter has been handed down via tradition as the celebration of the resurrection of Messiah.  However, just as all the holidays mentioned above, there may be a thin veil of Christianity associated with the holiday, but in reality the tradition and customs trace back to the Mystery religions of old.

The name Easter derives from the goddess Eostre/Ishtar.

International Standard Bible Dictionary

Easter
ēs´tẽr (πάσχα, páscha, from Aramaic
פסחא, paṣḥā’ and Hebrew פסח, peṣaḥ, the Passover festival): The English word comes from the Anglo-Saxon Eastre or Estera, a Teutonic goddess to whom sacrifice was offered in April, so the name was transferred to the paschal feast. The word does not properly occur in Scripture, although the King James Version has it in Act_12:4 where it stands for Passover, as it is rightly rendered in the Revised Version (British and American)

Easter – the Queen of Heaven

Webster’s New World College Dictionary:
“Astarte … a Semitic goddess of fertility and sexual love, worshiped by the Phoenicians and others: see also ASHTORETH, ISHTAR.”
“Ashtoreth … the ancient Phoenician and Syrian goddess of love and fertility: identified with ASTARTE.”
“Ishtar … see ASHTORETH … the goddess of love, fertility, and war.”

Encyclopedia Britannica:
“Astarte/Ashtoreth is the Queen of Heaven to whom the Canaanites had burned incense and poured libations.”

Soul Vision website:
“Known by many names, across time and space, Lilith or Eve, Anath and Asherah, Astarte, the Queen of Heaven, the Shekhinah and the Matronit…. No matter Her name, she was loved.”

Shekhina Hebrew Goddess website:
“Shekhina [is] the Hebrew Goddess of the Kabbala.”

Encyclopedia Britannica:
“Ishtar is the Akkadian counterpart of the West Semitic goddess Astarte.”

Encyclopedia Britannica:
“Through her identification with the Greek Aphrodite and the Roman Venus, Inanna-Ishtar, the queen of heaven, still survives in Roman Catholic iconography – e.g., as the Virgin Mary standing on the moon.”

Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, 1894:
“Queen of Heaven with the ancient Phoenicians, was Astarte; Greeks, Hera; Romans, Juno; Trivia, Hecate, Diana, the Egyptian Isis, etc., were all so called; but with the Roman Catholics it is the Virgin Mary.”

Temple of the Temptress:
“Diana was called the Mother goddess and Queen of heaven, just as Mary is called Mother of god and queen of heaven.”

Mary was proclaimed as the ‘Queen of Heaven’ in the 7th century in Ephesus where Artemis/Diana was worshipped as the Queen of Heaven.

Queen of Heaven and the ‘New World Order’

Rulers of Evil – Tupper Saussy pg 219-220

“Six hundred years after Isaiah {Isaiah 7:14; 9:6}, Virgil solemnly announced in the Fourth Eclogue that the Prince of Peace would be produced by the unrolling of a New World Order (‘NOVUS ORDER SECLORUM’):

Now returns the Golden Age of Saturn, now appears the Immaculate Virgin. Now descends from heaven a divine Nativity.  O! Chaste Lucina, speed the Mother’s pains, haste the glorious Birth, and usher in the reign of thy Apollo.  thy consulship, O Pollio, shall lead this glorious Advent, and the new world order shall then begin to roll.  Thenceforth whatever vestige of Original Sin remains, shall be swept away from earth forever, and the Son of God shall be the Prince of Peace!

Rulers of Evil pg 212-13

E. Pluribus Unum “of many, one”.

According to Manly Hall this phrase comes from the ancient Bacchic Ritesclick here which he says was the forerunner to Freemasonry.  The Bacchic rites are built upon the story of the Titans causing Bacchus to become enthralled with himself in a mirror.  While he is being mesmerized by himself the Titans seize  him and tear him to pieces where they boil him and then roast him and eat him.  This grieves all his loved ones, hence his name, Bacchus which cames from bakhah which means to weep or lament.  Bacchus’ sister, the virgin Minerva, rescues his sacred heart from the four elements and places them before Jupiter in heaven.  Jupiter then turns the Titans to ashes with his thunderbolts.  The rains further reduce the ashes to slime which are mingled with the four elements of Bacchus strewn body parts.  From this slime, Jupiter forms mankind from which the ‘Bacchic idea’, or rational soul, must be released.  The Bacchic idea is released by the slime’s sexual energy, especially when facilitated by alcoholic drink…hence Bacchus is associated with grapevines, wild dancing, phallic symbols and fornication. {More on this below}

When death and sex have rescued the rational soul from the four slimy corners of the earth, a transfigured, eternal Bacchus is resurrected as the flaming Sun.  He is E Pluribus Unum, One from Many, a resurrection symbolized by the pentagram, the one rising out of the four to make five.  This, says Manly Hall, is the ‘magical formula of man,’ rising out of the bondage of the animal nature.

Queen of Heaven & the Pentagram

The pentagram symbol is based on Venus (the Queen of Heaven).  From a fixed location over an eight year period, the planet Venus travels a unique celestial pathway that  exactly describes a pentagram.

Carl Ljungman- Dictionary of Symbols

“As the orbi of Venus is closer to the sun than the earth’s position, she is never seen more than 48 degrees from the sun.  During a period of 247 days, Venus is visible as the Evening star that is, withing 48 degrees or less of the sun after the sun has set.  Then Venus comes too close to the sun for us to see her.  She remains invisible for 14 days, then reappears as the Morning star (or Eastern star) immediately before the sun rises in the east….Only Venus possesses the five-pointed star sign.”

Isa 14:12  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

The Targum is,

“how art thou fallen from on high, who was shining among the sons of men, as the star Venus among the stars.”
Keil & Delitzsch commentary on Isaiah 14:12

(Note: It is singular, however, that among the Semitic nations the morning star is not personified as a male (Heōsphoros or Phōsphoros), but as a female (Astarte, see at Isa_17:8), and that it is called Nâghâh, Ashtoreth, Zuhara, but never by a name derived from hâlal; whilst the moon is regarded as a male deity (Sin), and in Arabic hilâl signifies the new moon, which might be called ben- shacar (son of the dawn), from the fact that, from the time when it passes out of the invisibility of its first phase, it is seen at sunrise, and is as it were born out of the dawn.)*

*This is interesting to note in that the crescent moon is a symbol of Astarte/Ishtar/Semiramis etc.  More on this below

The Bible as History Werner Keller

Dr. Asher Eder’s -The Star of David

Albert Pike, stated: “…the blazing star… represents [the] Star of Horus…Morning Star…Star of Set…Lucifer.” Cathy Burns, Hidden Secrets Of The Eastern Star, pp.52-53
Since the quintessence is symbolized by the pentacle or six-pointed star, we may infer that this essence which enhances material elements is Lucifer, symbolized in occult language by the eagle or phoenix.

In Hebrew the word for eagle is:

H5404
נשׁר
nesher

Interestingly, the Hebrew word for calf (ie. golden calf) is עגל which sounds like eagle. Yet another connection to Ishtar-Baal golden calf worship.

H5695
עגל
‛êgel
BDB Definition:
1) calf, bull-calf

“In Medieval art and symbolism, the eagle was associated with the five-pointed star.  In the Medieval period, the eagle was regarded as a magical figure….Villard de Honnecourt traced in the heraldic image of a displayed eagle the form of the five-pointed star, or pentagram.  This meant that the eagle was viewed as being the equivalent of the five-pointed star – in terms of both symbolism and numerology.

Secrets of the Dollar Bill pg 139

“As a matter of fact, the eagle was widely used in alchemy.  In certain texts, the crowned eagle was seen as a symbols of a successfully completed stage in the search for the manufacture of the secret Philosopher’s Stone, which would confer long life and incredible riches.”

As will be seen below, the Philosopher’s Stone is intimately connected with Ishtar and the mark of the beast.

Queen of Heaven & the Rose

The constellation of the Virgin usually has her holding wheat, corn or a five-petaled flower.  This represents the BRANCH {tsemach}, which is used 5 times in the Scriptures, all referring to the Messiah.

Isa 4:2  In that day the Branch of YHWH will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth for pride and for glory for the survivors of Israel.
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.

Jer 33:15  In those days, and at that time, I will cause a Branch of Righteousness to grow up to David. And He shall do judgment and righteousness in the land.
Jer 33:16  In those days Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell in safety. And this is the name that shall be called on her: 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 shall spring up out of His place, and He shall build the temple of YHWH.
Zec 6:13  Even He shall build the temple of YHWH; and He shall bear the majesty, and shall sit and rule on His throne. And He shall be a priest on His throne; and the counsel of peace shall be between the two of them.

In all of the pagan holidays that have been passed down to us as benign ‘Christian’ holidays, the counterfeit system is seen over and over.  The shadow pictures & symbology of Messiah Yahshua were applied to counterfeit Christs.  The same symbols have been applied to Mary as the Queen of Heaven, who is in reality Lucifer.



The Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital pg 161-162
‘This same sense of spiritual redemption was presaged in the ear of wheat, the Spice, in the hand of the stellar Virgin.  The wheat signaled the germinal poewr that would grow from that Virgin onto the Bread of Life.  It was the Plant of Life which had been opposed by the Tree of Death – the wheat which could grow from the darkness of the grave….There is a striking similarity in the pelanos, or sacred bread of the ancient Mystery lore, and the holy bread of the hose in the Christian Mysteries.  This point has often been developed by scholars.  The idea is clearly indicated in the 18th century engraving, alongside, which portrays the World Mother, the Virgin goddess, not only with her many corn ears, but with a version of the holy bread marked with what may be interpreted as a wide cross.’ {See Below for more information on ‘hot cross buns’.}

The Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital pg 157
‘the wheat (in the Virgin’s hand) was sometimes transformed into a flower – very often into a five-petaled rose.’

Children of the Matrix pg 171
‘The Romans called the rose the ‘flower of Venus’ and this was a term used for the goddess, including Queen Semiramis.  The red rose was symbolic of female sexuality and the white rose or lily is the virgin goddess.’

Easter Lily – White rose connection

Son 2:1  I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.

Notice again the hexagram (easter lily) (6) & pentagram (white rose) (5) connection.

http://www.appleseeds.org/easter-lily.htm

The Easter Lily. For many, the beautiful trumpet-shaped white flowers symbolize purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life—the spiritual essence of Easter.  History, mythology, literature, poetry and the world of art are rife with stories and images that speak of the beauty and majesty of the elegant white flowers. Often called the “white-robed apostles of hope,” lilies were found growing in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ’s agony. Tradition has it that the beautiful white lilies sprung up where drops of Christ’s sweat fell to the ground in his final hours of sorrow and deep distress. Churches continue this tradition at Easter time by banking their altars and surrounding their crosses with masses of Easter Lilies, to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and hope of life everlasting.

Since the beginning of time, lilies have played significant roles in allegorical tales concerning the sacrament of motherhood. Roman mythology links it to Juno, the queen of the gods. The story goes that while Juno was nursing her son Hercules, excess milk fell from the sky. Although part of it remained above the earth (thus creating the group of stars known as the Milky Way), the remainder fell to the earth, creating lilies. Another tradition has it that the lily sprang from the repentant tears of Eve as she went forth from Paradise.

David Ovason, in his book Secret Architecture of our Nation’s Capital connects the ‘Weeping Virging’ with Isis her weeping over the death of Osiris.  In esoteric thought this weeping is associated not only with death but also with resurrection & ‘initiation’ into the mysteries.  John Simons, a Masonic author, believed that Egyptian hieroglyphics were closely linked with Hebrew and traced hieroglyphic for the above concept of tears or milk falling from the gods with the Hebrew word yarah.  The Egyptian hieroglyphic mst which is translated as dew is actually water falling from heaven, or the gods throwing drops of sacred water.

This is the root of the word Torah.

John Simons points out that this Egyptian hieroglyphic for dew is also linked with Egyptian baptism, with the notion of shedding celestial dew on the head of the neophyte with initiation.  He referes to a plate which showed an Egyptian initiation scene where the gods Horus and Thoth pour sacred waters on the head of the neophyte.  This is a false baptism, a false ‘born again’ experience, a false resurrection.  In Masonic accounts, the virgin weeps because the Temple is left unfinished.  This is speaking of the perfecting of man and is what the image on the back of the dollar bill of the unfinished pyramid represents.

The pure white lily has long been closely associated with the Virgin Mary. In early paintings, the Angel Gabriel is pictured extending to the Virgin Mary a branch of pure white lilies, announcing that she is to be the mother of the Christ Child. In other paintings, saints are pictured bringing vases full of white lilies to Mary and the infant Jesus. St. Joseph is depicted holding a lily-branch in his hand, indicating that his wife Mary was a virgin.

The legend is told that when the Virgin Mary’s tomb was visited three days after her burial, it was found empty save for bunches of majestic white lilies. Early writers and artists made the lily the emblem of the Annunciation, the Resurrection of the Virgin: the pure white petals signifying her spotless body and the golden anthers her soul glowing with heavenly light.…

In the Greco-Roman culture, the rose represented beauty, the season of spring, and love. It also spoke of the fleetness of time, and therefore inferred death and the next world. In Rome the feast called rosalia was a feast of the dead.

The rose as the queen of flowers was evidently a privileged symbol for Mary, Queen of heaven and earth. The rose is a symbol of Christ, too, as we see in the German Christmas song from a poem by Goethe, Es Ist ein’ Ros’ Entsprungen.

The Marian symbolism is well illustrated by Dante in his description of Paradise. His guide, Beatrice, invites him to contemplate among the heavenly inhabitants the beauty of Mary, the Mother of God:

“Why are you so enamored of my face that you do not turn your gaze to the beautiful garden which blossoms under the radiance of Christ? There is the Rose in which the Divine word became flesh: here are the lilies whose perfume guides you in the right ways.” (Paradiso, 23, 71-75)

Later the influence of the the Song of Songs led to the rose symbolizing the mystical union between Christ and his Church, or between God and each member of his people. Because Mary was  honored as the model of our union with God, the rose became a privileged  symbol of the union between Christ and Mary. The litany of Loreto includes the title, “Mystical Rose.”

During the Renaissance the rose garden theme came to represent human love and lovers. But at the same time the religious, Marian symbolism of the rose was popularized by the devotion of the rosary.

The structured prayer form of 150 Hail Marys was termed a “rosary.” This expression came from the Latin rosarium or rosarius, a name given to works collecting the best of some teaching. For example, Arnold of Villanova wrote a Rosarius Philosophorum, explaining that it was a compendium, a thesaurus, a treasury of philosophy. Here the symbolism of the rosary stands as a precious anthology of spirituality.

Our Lady of the rosary is Our Lady of the roses, because the flowers are the symbols of greeting offered to the Mother of God. We greet her with spiritual flowers.

In a different perspective, Mary and the Child Jesus offer the rosary to their devotees. In his Feast of the Rosary (1506), Albrecht Durer represents Jesus and Mary handing out crowns of roses.

The Rose & the Heart

The rose in hermetic and alchemical texts could symbolize either the solar, male (red) or lunar, feminine (white) currents or properties, but it also could be used as a symbol for the heart. Scholars of the past believed the heart was inclined at an angle of 23 degrees, “like the axis of the earth against the path of the sun. And the heart is like the bud of the lotus flower … while the Egyptians worshipped the flower of the sun (Isis).” – August Strindberg, “A Blue Book,” Munich (1918).

More on this lotus flower/heart connection below.

Two Babylons pg 169
In the Church of Rome a new kind of devotion has of late been largely introduced, in which the beads play an important part, and which shows what new and additional strides in the direction of the old Babylonian Paganism the Papacy every day is steadily making. I refer to the “Rosary
of the Sacred Heart.” It is not very long since the worship of the “Sacred Heart” was first introduced; and now, everywhere it is the favourite worship. It was so in ancient Babylon, as is evident from the Babylonian system as it appeared in Egypt. There also a “Sacred Heart” was venerated. The “Heart” was one of the sacred symbols of Osiris when he was born again, and appeared as Harpocrates, or the infant divinity, * borne in the arms of his mother Isis.
* The name Harpocrates, as shown by Bunsen, signifies “Horus, the child.”

Rose & Sion

Numerologically, the letters of the word ROSE are 9615, same as the first letters of the Egyptian royal family

I for Isis = 9
O for Osiris = 6
N for Nephthys = 5
S for Set = 1

Interestingly, these letters also spell SION, as in the Priory of Sion.

The Templars riding with their red cross were
the keepers of the secret of the rose within the chalice.”

The Rose with its word anagram ‘Erosclick here {Eros is another name for Cupid…another rose-heart connection, click link for more info}, has long been associated with ‘Our Lady’, whether she be in her role as Mary the Mother, Magdalene the Lover, or Saint. It is also associated with the heart of Christ, the Rose of Sharon. The five-petalled rose, Rosa Rugosa, is the earth’s oldest known variety of rose and is a repeating symbol present at many Templar church sites that we visited.

The unusual solid stone barrel-shaped ceiling of Rosslyn Chapel is divided into five sections, and is covered with carved five-pointed stars, lilies, roses and other flowers. These stars have an ancient association with Venus, Isis and Magdalene and are also found on the ceilings Egyptian temples. (The pentagram’s proportions are a perfect example of the Golden Mean, or PHI ratio, and the sacred geometry used in ancient temple architecture). Another section of the ceiling containing a series of cubes is said to correspond to PHI and a Fibonacci musical scale.

Rose Mystery

In ancient Rome…the rose was known as the Flower of Venus and lent itself ultimately as an instrument of worship represented by the rosary.

Rosa Mystica of the Zohar

The Zohar, a book of Jewish mysticism contains texts that deal with the mysteries of the Rosa Mystica and her Son. In the texts the Rosa Mystica is called Matronita, a Heavenly Warrioress Queen who “leads her warriors to become like Elohim”, she is also named ‘Kneset Yisrael’, ‘Woman of Israel’ and ‘Queen of the Sabbath’. She is the Spouse of the Ruach ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit), and as a woman She is sometimes named ‘Isha’. She is said to be clothed with the Sun standing on the Moon.

The opening passages of the Zohar quote a verse from the Song of Songs: “Like a rose among thorns, so is my darling among the maidens” (Song of Songs 2:2). The Aramaic word for ‘mystery’ is ‘raza’ – a word very similar to Latin ‘rosa.’

Flowers Through the Ages by Gabriele Tergit contains many pages on the history and folklore of the rose.
“…Soon the mysterious rose, sacred to Venus in earlier times, became the flower of the Virgin Mary, who herself became the Rosa mystica. The temple of Jupiter Capitolinus became St. Peter’s, the temple of Juno Lucina the church of S. Maria Maggiore, and the processions honouring the Mother of God walked on rose petals, just as the processions carrying the images of the pagan gods had done.” (p. 43)

“The rose was dedicated to the goddess of love, that is, to the eternal mystery of the continuity of life. As such it was the symbol of mystery and secrecy. ‘Mystery glows in the rose bed, the secret is hidden in the rose,’ sang the Persian poet and perfumer, Farid ud-din Attar, in the twelfth century. A more prosaic explanation is that the folded structure of the rose, by its nature, conceals a secret inner core. … in Germany, we read in Sebastian Brant’s Narrenschiff, [Ship of Fools] in the late fifteenth century: ‘What here we do say, shall under roses stay.’” (p. 46)

The Latin phrase sub rosa means “under the rose” and is used in English to denote secrecy or confidentiality.  The rose was the emblem of the god Horus in ancient Egypt. Later, the Greeks and Romans regarded Horus as the god of silence.  The rose, with a characteristic five-petal shape imitates the pentagram – a five-sided star also a symbol.
The labyrinth on the floor in the Chartres Cathedral in France has a rose in the center. The cathedral was built incorporating sacred geometry and it is alleged, was built to represent the form of the human. Looking at it from the air, it appears to be in the shape of a cross, however if one looks at Leonardo DaVinci’s drawing of man with his arms outstretched and the pentagram overlaid, the cathedral could very well be to represent human form.
A sixteenth century lexicon states that the rose is a symbol that has many very profound meanings in all branches of the Hermetic mystery. The Rosicrucian esoteric fraternity adopted the rose on a cross as their symbol.

Queen of Heaven & the Dove

Fig. 25: Dove and Olive Branch of Assyrian Juno BRYANT, vol. iii. p. 84.

Fig. 25: Dove and Olive Branch of Assyrian Juno BRYANT, vol. iii. p. 84.

The branch in the hand of Cybele in the above cut is only a conventional branch; but in the figure given by Layard it is distinctly

Two Babylons pg 81
The dove, the chosen symbol of this deified queen, is commonly represented with an olive
branch in her mouth (Fig. 25), as she herself in her human form also is seen bearing the olive
branch in her hand; and from this form of representing her, it is highly probable that she has
derived the name by which she is commonly known, for “Z’emir-amit” means “The branchbearer.”
*

Assyrian Trinity
In confirmation of this view, it must be stated that the Assyrian “Juno,” or “The Virgin
Venus,” as she was called, was identified with the air. In Chaldee the same word which signifies the
air signifies also the Holy Ghost. The statement of Proclus, that “Juno imports the generation of
soul.”

Thus, then, the deified Semiramis, (the wife of Nimrod) when in all respects regarded as a
veritable woman, was at the same time adored as the incarnation of the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of
peace and love in the form of a dove. In the temple of Hierapolis in Syria, (the city of obelisks) there
was a famous statue of the goddess Juno, to which crowds from all quarters flocked to worship.
The image of the goddess was richly habited, on her head was a golden dove, and she was
called by the name peculiar to the country, Semeion. What is the meaning of Semeion? It is evidently
“The Habitation;” and the “golden dove” on her head shows plainly who it was that was supposed
to dwell in her. Even the Spirit of God!

Two Babylons pg 79
Then Rhea, “the gazer,” the mother of mankind, was identified with Cybele “the binder with cords,” or Juno, “the
Dove,” that is, the Holy Spirit. Then, in the blasphemous Pagan sense, she became Athor, “the Habitation of God,”
or Sacca, or Sacta, “the tabernacle” or “temple,” in whom dwelt “all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Thus she
became Heva, “The Living One”; not in the sense in which Adam gave that name to his wife after the Fall, when the
hope of life out of the midst of death was so unexpectedly presented to her as well as to himself; but in the sense of
the communicator of spiritual and eternal life to men; for Rhea was called the “fountain of the blessed ones.”

Two Babylons pg 81
Now in her, as the Tabernacle or Temple of God, not only all power, but all grace and goodness
were believed to dwell. Every quality of gentleness and mercy was regarded as centred in her;
and when death had closed her career, while she was fabled to have been deified and changed
into a pigeon, * to express the celestial benignity of her nature, she was called by the name of
“D’Iune,” ** or “The Dove,” or without the article, “Juno”–the name of the Roman “queen of
heaven,” which has the very same meaning; and under the form of a dove as well as her own, she
was worshipped by the Babylonians.

As seen above, Alexander Hislop links the dove imagery that is associated with the Queen of Heaven to the Holy Spirit indwelling the believer or the Shechinah of Elohim dwelling in the Temple.  More on this below, in the section on the Stairway to heaven.

Also, as seen above, the Holy Spirit is linked with the ‘Philosopher’s stone’.  Many scholars have since insisted that the true alchemists sought not to turn base metals into gold, but to transform the dense material of their physical bodies into a spiritually evolved immaterial entity. In this perspective, the philosopher’s stone becomes the Holy Spirit that mystically transmutes humans into true manifestations of God on Earth.

This is a direct counterfeit of the Holy Scriptures.

The Spirit is likened to a dove at the Baptism of Messiah.  Baptism is a symbol of rebirth, hence the Spirit/Dove is linked to rebirth and resurrection.
Luk 3:21  And it happened, in the baptizing of all the people, Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened;
Luk 3:22  and the Holy Spirit came down in a bodily form as a dove upon Him. And there was a voice out of Heaven, saying, You are My Son, the Beloved; in You I have been delighting.
Psa. 2:7; Gen 22:2; Isa. 42:1

The Creation

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth;
Gen 1:2  and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and
the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,

The word for ‘moving gently’ in Hebrew is a picture of a bird/dove hovering over its nest.  Here, a connection to the egg is seen.  This is another reason why Ishtar is associated with eggs.

A replay of this was seen when the virgin Mary conceived and brought forth the Messiah…the Light of the world.  The Spirit hovered over her ‘waters/womb’, the Seed (the Word) was implanted and she brought forth the Tree of Life.

Luk 1:35  And answering, the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you, and for this reason that Holy One being born of you will be called Son of God.

Psa 139:13  For You have possessed my inward parts; You wove me in the womb of my mother.
Psa 139:14  I will thank You, for with awesome ways I am distinguished; Your works are marvelous, and my soul knows it very well.
Psa 139:15  My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret;
when I was woven in the depths of the earth.

Here we seen that the womb is likened to the earth.  In Hebraic thought, the womb is also likened to waters.  This will be discussed in more detail below on the section dealing with baptism.  It is interesting to note that there are two words translated in Scripture as ‘dove.’  One is ‘yonah’ from whence comes the name Jonah.  Jonah’s resurrection from the dead after 3 days and nights in the whale’s belly is the greatest sign of Messiah (Matthew 12:39-40).

The other word for dove in Hebrew is ‘tor.’  As mentioned multiple times during this series, this is the root word for Torah.  It means the image or boundary of a land marked by markers.  As seen above, the land is likened unto a bride so it is no surprise that the dove symbol would be applied to the bride of the beast.

Lilith

Isa 34:14  The desert creatures (Targum – monsters) shall also meet with the howlers; and the shaggy goat (satyr) shall cry to his fellow. The screech owl (Heb. lillith Vulgate- lamla (witch)) shall also settle there, and find a place of rest for herself.

Owl association

The Burney Relief

The Myth of the Goddess
“The Sumerian word for owl is ninna and the name Nin-ninna given to the goddess in her owl form meant ‘Divine Lady Owl’. The ancient texts also give the Akkadian word kilili for Nin-ninna, and this name was one shared by Innana and Ishtar. (Perhaps kilili is the original derivation of Lilith, who, much later, in biblical times, is called ‘night-owl or screech-owl’.”

Rafael Patai (The Hebrew Goddess 3rd ed. 1990) relates that in the Sumerian poem Gilgamesh and the Huluppu Tree, a she-demon named Lilith built her house in the Huluppu tree on the banks of the Euphrates before being routed by Gilgamesh. Patai then describes the Burney plaque:

“A Babylonian terra-cotta relief, roughly contemporary with the above poem, shows in what form Lilith was believed to appear to human eyes. She is slender, well shaped, beautiful and nude, with wings and owl-feet. She stands erect on two reclining lions which are turned away from each other and are flanked by owls. On her head she wears a cap embellished by several pairs of horns. In her hands she holds a ring and rod combination. Evidently this is no longer a lowly she-demon, but a goddess who tames wild beasts and, as shown by the owls on the reliefs, rules by night.”

Male & Female Androgyny

Lilith from Michelangelo's The Temptation of Adam and Eve

And the Serpent, the Woman of Harlotry, incited and seduced Eve through the husks of Light which in itself is holiness. And the Serpent seduced Holy Eve, and enough said for him who understands. And all this ruination came about because Adam the first man coupled with Eve while she was in her menstrual impurity – this is the filth and the impure seed of the Serpent who mounted Eve before Adam mounted her. Behold, here it is before you: because of the sins of Adam the first man all the things mentioned came into being. For Evil Lilith, when she saw the greatness of his corruption, became strong in her husks, and came to Adam against his will, and became hot from him and bore him many demons and spirits and Lilin. (Patai81:455f)

Lilith pictures with Adam and Eve

http://jewishchristianlit.com//Topics/Lilith/aNePics.html

Lilith with Adam and Eve at Notre Dame Base of trumeau

Another similar monster was the Greek Lamia, who likewise governed a class of child stealing lamia-demons. Lamia bore the title “child killer” and was feared for her malevolence, like Lilith.  She has different conflicting origins and is described as having a human upper body from the waist up and a serpentine body from the waist down.
(Some depictions of Lamia picture her as having wings and feet of a bird, rather than being half serpent, similar to the earlier reliefs of Greek Sirens and the Lilitu.)

Lamia had a vicious sexual appetite that matched her cannibalistic appetite for children. She was notorious for being a vampiric spirit and loved sucking men’s blood.

Her gift was the “mark of a Sibyl,” a gift of second sight. Zeus was said to have given her the gift of sight. However, she was “cursed” to never be able to shut her eyes so that she would forever obsess over her dead children. Taking pity on Lamia, Zeus gave her the ability to remove and replace her eyes from their sockets.

Western Mystery Tradition

The western mystery tradition associates Lilith with the Klipoth of kabbalah. Samael Aun Weor in The Pistis Sophia Unveiled writes that homosexuals are the “henchmen of Lilith.” Likewise, women who undergo willful abortion, and those who support this practice are “seen in the sphere of Lilith.”  Dion Fortune writes, “The Virgin Mary is reflected in Lilith,” and that Lilith is the source of “lustful dreams.”  Indeed, if one meditates on negative (or inverted) Binah, one readily finds Lilith; to worship Lilith is to use the power of the Holy Spirit for negative purposes.

Note that the serpent has a woman’s head and torso. Detail from Temptation, Fall, and Expulsion  from Les Tres Riches Heures du Duc de Berry, 1411-1416. Brothers Limbourg, Franco-Flemish.
Is Ishtar/Astarte/Ashtoreth/Venus/Satan male or female?

http://bnaiavraham.net/teaching_articles/english_teachings/Satan/was_satan.htm

For most people the word “god” has masculine connotations — whereas “goddess” is attributed to the female idols. However, they are one and the same! The “GOD” that is worshipped throughout the whole world is really the Queen of heaven-Satan/Helel .The Queen of heaven often tales on BOTH male and female characteristics

The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, vol.3, page 975, says of Ishtar: “Ishtar, the goddess of love and fertility, who was identified with the VENUS STAR and is actually entitled the “Mistress of Heaven” in the Amarna tablets. The difficulty is that the VENUS STAR was regarded in Palestine as a male deity..”

Unger’s Bible Dictionary, on page 412, says,”Ashtoreth, Astarte, a Canaanite goddess. In south Arabic the name is found as “Ashtar” a GOD identified with the planet VENUS.The name is cognate with the Babylonian Ishtar (Easter!), the goddess of sensual love, maternity, and fertility. In the Ras Shamara Tablets are found BOTH the masculine form “Ashtar” and the feminine “Ashtart”…

The History of Religions, by the University of Chicago, 1991,pages 261-278, confirms, “Inanna-Ishtar is a liminal figure; she is ANDROGYNOUS (having the characteristics of both sexes, man, head, woman) marginal, ambiguous. Inanna-Ishtar combines male aggressiveness with the force of superabundance of female sexuality. She is herself the “Harlot of Heaven”.  LIONS are especially associated with Ishtar. She is the only goddess to have an epithet of lioness, and with her fierceness and raging power it is indeed a fitting epithet, even more befitting the MALENESS of the goddess. The chief participants and actors in the goddess cult are well known by name. There is an ambiguity about their sexuality-whether they were eunuchs, hermaphrodites, or simply transvestites. Their transvestitism simulated the androgyny of Inanna-Ishtar. It was perhaps the inversion of the male-female binary opposition that thereby neutralized this opposition. By emulating their goddess WHO WAS BOTH MALE AND FEMALE, they shattered the boundary between the sexes.”

Both the words in this Scripture (1Kings 11:33) are translated from the word elohim. The Hebrew-English Lexicon by Brown, Driver, and Briggs 0n page 43 tells us that elohim can mean –”Pl.intensive, a.a god OR goddess.” Satan/Helel then possesses BOTH characteristics-Male and Female as a malak, and may be worshipped as BOTH a “God” and “Goddess”.

1Ki 11:33  Because they have forsaken Me, and bow themselves to Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, to Chemosh the god of Moab, to Milcom the god of the sons of Ammon; and have not walked in My ways, to do the right in My eyes, and My statutes and My judgments, as his father David did.

Queen of Heaven & the Caduceus

The Goddess ‘America’ who holds the caduceus in her hand is a link showing the link between the Queen of Heaven/Virgo and Mercury/Hermes.

Secret Architecture of our Nation’s Capital pg 160-163

‘Those images which show Virgo clutching a caduceus are surprisingly close to most ancient literature pertaining to Virgo.  In astrology, the planet Mercury is the ruler of Virgo….17th century English astrologer John Gadbury, indicates that the Mercury of astrology is the communicator between Man and God…The fleet-winged Mercury is the messenger of the gods, the one who communicates between the realm of matter and the realm of spirit…

Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital pg 167

Mercury is truly a hermaphrodite.  Although associated for thousands of years with the male Hermes, the planet is nonetheless said to take on the sexual coloring of the sign in which it is located.  Thus, when Mercury is in the feminine sign Virgo, it demonstrates most completely its feminine attributes.

Serpent Goddess

Children of the Matrix pg 146
“The serpent goddess is known under countless names around the world, including Diana, Artemis, Semiramis, Barit, Britannia, Hecate, Rhea, Persephone (‘First Serpent’) and so on.  These same names have also been used to symbolise esoteric concepts like the phases of the Moon and female energy, but at its foundation this goddess worship of the Illuminati would seem to relate to the DNA transmitted through the female and possibly originating in the constellation of Orion….this DNA source symbolised in various cultures as the Dragon Queens, the Orion Queen or Queens, and the ‘Snake Mother.’  Artemis is depicted with eggs all over her chest and she is associated with beesclick here. One of the prime symbols of the Merovingian bloodline, so connected to Artemis/Diana worship, is the bee and the hive.

Children of the Matrix pg 147
Sir Laurence Gardner is a spokesman for the Imperial Royal Dragon Court an Order that represents the interests of the ‘Dragon bloodlines’ seeded by the DNA of the ‘Dragon Queens.’ He says that this symbolism and the themeof the Dragon Queens goes back to the ‘founding mother’ of the Annunaki he calls Tiamat, the Sea-dragon in Mesopotamian accounts.  These queens, he suggests, were commonly represented as mermaids and were called Ladies of the Lake.  Throughout the lands settled by former Atlantean-Lemurian peoples you find the worship of the serpent goddess and her serpent son, who is often symbolised as a bull.

Crescent Moon, Lucifer & the Queen of Heaven

Isa 14:12  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

The Targum is,

“how art thou fallen from on high, who was shining among the sons of men, as the star Venus among the stars.”
Keil & Delitzsch commentary on Isaiah 14:12
(Note: It is singular, however, that among the Semitic nations the morning star is not personified as a male (Heōsphoros or Phōsphoros), but as a female (Astarte, see at Isa_17:8), and that it is called Nâghâh, Ashtoreth, Zuhara, but never by a name derived from hâlal; whilst the moon is regarded as a male deity (Sin), and in Arabic hilâl signifies the new moon, which might be called ben- shacar (son of the dawn), from the fact that, from the time when it passes out of the invisibility of its first phase, it is seen at sunrise, and is as it were born out of the dawn.)

You can find on page 121 shown with the icon, “A symbol of ascent from the underworld (the three days of the dark moon). The crescent moon is an attribute of Isis, the Great Mother of the Egyptians, and in Christian iconography, of the Virgin Mary”.

http://amos37.com/2009/11/13/hilal-means-crescent/

The crescent and star, while generally regarded as Islamic symbols today, have long been used in Asia Minor and by the ancient Turks, earlier than the advent of Islam. According to archaeological excavations, Gِktürks used the crescent and star figure on their coins. The 1500-year-old coin includes three crescent moon figures and a star near a person. The crescent is one of the oldest symbols known to humanity. Together with the sun, it appeared on Akkadian seals as early as 2300 BC and from at least the second millennium BC it was the symbol of the Mesopotamian Moon gods Nanna in Sumer and Sin in Babylonia, Sin being the “Lamp of Heaven and Earth”.

For ages the crescent was the emblem of the Chaldean Astarte, the Egyptian Isis, and the Greek Diana, all of them Queens of Heaven, and finally became the emblem of Mary the Virgin. “The Greek Christian Empire of Constantinople held it as their palladium. Upon the conquest by the Turks, the Sultan adopted it.

“Sîn, moon god of Semitic origin, worshiped in ancient Middle Eastern religions. One of the principal deities in the Babylonian and Assyrian pantheons, he was lord of the calendar and of wisdom. The chief centers of his worship were at Harran and at Ur, where he was known as Nanna.” (encyclopedia.com, Sîn).  Haran is also known as the city of the moon god.  This is the place where Abraham was called out of.  We are called out of darkness and into His marvelous light.  The bible is our source of light.

He is commonly designated as En-zu, or “lord of wisdom.” During the period (c.2600-2400 BC) that Ur exercised a large measure of supremacy over the Euphrates valley, Sin was naturally regarded as the head of the pantheon. It is to this period that we must trace such designations of Sin as “father of the gods”, “chief of the gods”, “creator of all things”, and the like. The “wisdom” personified by the moon-god is likewise an expression of the science of astrology, in which the observation of the moon’s phases is an important factor.

His wife was Ningal (“Great Lady”), who bore him Utu/Shamash (“Sun”) and Inanna/Ishtar (the planet Venus). The tendency to centralize the powers of the universe leads to the establishment of the doctrine of a triad consisting of Sin/Nanna and his children.

Sin had a beard made of lapis lazuli and rode on a winged bull. The bull was one of his symbols, through his father, Enlil, “Bull of Heaven”, along with the crescent and the tripod (which may be a lamp-stand). On cylinder seals, he is represented as an old man with a flowing beard and the crescent symbol. In the astral-theological system he is represented by the number 30 and the moon. This number probably refers to the average number of days (correctly around 29.53) in a lunar month, as measured between successive new moons.

Egyptians

They are subdivided, like the rest, into seven classes or Hierarchies, In Egypt although the moon received less worship than in Chaldea or India, still Isis stands as the representative of Luna-Lunus, “the celestial Hermaphrodite”. Strange enough while the modern connect the moon only with lunacy and generation, the ancient nations, who knew better, have, individually and collectively, connected their “wisdom gods” with it. Thus in Egypt the lunar gods are Thoth, Hermes and Chons; in India it is Budha, the Son of Soma, the moon; in Chaldea Nebo is the lunar god of Secret Wisdom, etc., etc.

The Greeks used it to represent the goddess Artemis or Diana of the Romans.  Typically depicted as Goddess of the hunt with a bow and crescent moon.  These are mentioned in the New Testament which we see in  Acts 19  where  it is recorded… “And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, [Ye] men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the [image] which fell down from Jupiter?”

This image that fell down in Ephesus from Jupiter is reported to be given to Abraham when he was reconstructing the Kaaba.  Ishmael reportedly was given the original transparent hyacinth stone, but became black by reason of sinners kissing.  Which is performed as idol worship every year during pilgrimage at Mecca.  It was according to tradition given to be the corner stone of the rebuilt Kaaba to attest to Gabriels diety.Source:Nature – Google Books It is the one and same idol of the black rock of the Kaaba which is a meteorite.  The ancients worshipped these meteoric stones that where super heated and smooth attributing heaven as it’s source.  Of note also is the Greek goddess took a meteorite (stone that fell from heaven)  to Tyre according to Eusebius to worship it there in a shrine.

Queen of Heaven & the Mystic Egg

*The ‘ark’ that landed in Egypt that the Dogons describe may trace back to the ‘mystic egg’ of Astarte.

In Mali, West Africa, lives a tribe of people called the Dogon. The Dogon are believed to be of Egyptian decent and their astronomical lore goes back thousands of years to 3200 BC. According to their traditions, the star Sirius has a companion star which is invisible to the human eye. This companion star has a 50 year elliptical orbit around the visible Sirius and is extremely heavy. It also rotates on its axis.  How did a people who lacked any kind of astronomical devices know so much about an invisible star? The star, which scientists call Sirius B, wasn’t even photographed until it was done by a large telescope in 1970.

The Dogon stories explain that also. According to their oral traditions, a race people from the Sirius system called the Nommos visited Earth thousands of years ago. The Nommos were ugly, amphibious beings that resembled mermen and mermaids. They also appear in Babylonian, Accadian, and Sumerian myths. The Egyptian Goddess Isis, who is sometimes depicted as a mermaid, is also linked with the star Sirius.

The Nommos, according to the Dogon legend, lived on a planet that orbits another star in the Sirius system. They landed on Earth in an “ark” that made a spinning decent to the ground with great noise and wind. It was the Nommos that gave the Dogon the knowledge about Sirius B.

According to Credo Mutwaclick here, the Zulu people call the star Sirius the ‘Star of the Wolf’ and their ancient accounts say that a ’sea-dwelling fish people’ from Sirius came to earth.

Syrian goddess Atargatis, the “Lady Goddess of the Sea,” is often depicted as a mermaid. She is associated with Canaanite goddesses Anat, Asherah, and Astarte. Here she is seen with her symbol, the serpent.

The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom pg 25 states that the symbol of the Sirians (from Sirius) in Atlantis was a triangle, sometimes with an eye in the middle.  This all seeing-eye symbol traced through Egypt as the eye of Horus/Osiris/Ra/Isis which is what is seen on the back of the dollar bill.

The all-seeing eye, on a deeper level, connects to the pineal gland…

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 ‘Christmas Tree’ is also another representation of the ‘opening of the third eye’/pineal gland.  The Christmas tree is an asherahclick here .

As mentioned above, it is believed by some people such as Robert Bauval and Robert Temple that the Giza pyramids are a mirror image, the Earthly representation of the Belt of Orion.

According to Wiegel, Orion was represented by the Two-Headed Eagle (Phoenix).  Interestingly, Washington D.C. was also set up to be a represenation of ‘heaven on earth’, with the constellation of Virgo as the preeminent figure. The L’Enfant triangle/Federal triangle lines up with the triangle that goes around the constellation of Virgo. David Ovason’s book ‘The Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital’ goes into great detail proving this.  They symbols used, the dates chosen to lay foundation stones of important buildings and even the date for the declaration of Independence (July 2-4 ‘Annunciation of the Virgin’) all point to Virgo/the Virgin. {More on this below}

The Punishment of the Fallen Angels – the Legends of the Jews- Louis Ginzberg

When the angels came to earth, and beheld the daughters of men in all their grace and beauty, they could not restrain their passion.

Shemhazai saw a maiden named Istehar, and he lost his heart to her.

She promised to surrender herself to him, if first he taught her the Ineffable Name, by means of which he raised himself to heaven.
<>He assented to her condition.
But once she knew it, she pronounced the Name, and herself ascended to heaven, without fulfilling her promise to the angel.

God said, “Because she kept herself aloof from sin, we will place her among the seven stars, that men may never forget her,” and she was put in the constellation of the Pleiades.  The Pleiades is an open star cluster which is visible to the naked eye in the constellation Taurus (the bull).From Egypt these sacred eggs can be distinctly traced to the banks of the Euphrates. The classic poets are full of the fable of the mystic egg of the Babylonians; and thus its tale is told by Hyginus, the Egyptian, the learned keeper of the Palatine library at Rome, in the time of Augustus, who was skilled in all the wisdom of his native country:

“An egg of wondrous size is said to have fallen from heaven into the river Euphrates. The fishes rolled it to the bank, where the doves having settled upon it, and hatched it, out came Venus, who afterwards was called the Syrian Goddess”–that is, Astarte.

Statue of Artemis and 'Easter Eggs'

Two Babylons pg 105

The hot cross buns are not now offered, but eaten, on the festival of Astarte; but this leaves no doubt as to whence they have been derived. The origin of the Pasch eggs is just as clear. The ancient Druids bore an egg, as the sacred emblem of their order. In the Dionysiaca, or mysteries of Bacchus, as celebrated in Athens, one part of the nocturnal ceremony consisted in the consecration of an egg. The Hindoo fables celebrate their mundane egg as of a golden colour. The people of Japan make their sacred egg to have been brazen. In China, at this hour, dyed or painted eggs are used on sacred festivals, even as in this country. In ancient times eggs were used in the religious rites of the Egyptians and the Greeks, and were hung up for mystic purposes in their temples. (Fig. 31). From Egypt these sacred eggs can be distinctly traced to the banks of the Euphrates. The classic poets are full of the fable of the mystic egg of the Babylonians; and thus its tale is told by Hyginus, the Egyptian, the learned keeper of the Palatine library at Rome, in the time of Augustus, who was skilled in all the wisdom of his native country: “An egg of wondrous size is said to have fallen from heaven into the river Euphrates. The fishes rolled it to the bank, where the doves having settled upon it, and hatched it, out came Venus, who afterwards was
called the Syrian Goddess”–that is, Astarte. Hence the egg became one of the symbols of Astarte or Easter; and accordingly, in Cyprus, one of the chosen seats of the worship of Venus, or Astarte, the egg of wondrous size was represented on a grand scale. (see Fig. 32)

From LANDSEER’s Sabean Researches, p. 80. London, 1823.

The occult meaning of this mystic egg of Astarte, in one of its aspects (for it had a twofold significance), had reference to the ark during the time of the flood, in which the whole human race were shut up, as the chick is enclosed in the egg before it is hatched. If any be inclined to ask, how could it ever enter the minds of men to employ such an extraordinary symbol for such a purpose, the answer is, first, The sacred egg of Paganism, as already indicated, is well known as the “mundane egg,” that is, the egg in which the world was shut up. Now the world has two distinct meanings–it means either the material earth, or the inhabitants of the earth. The latter meaning of the term is seen in Genesis 11:1, “The whole earth was of one language and of one speech,” where the meaning is that the whole people of the world were so. If then the world is seen shut up in an egg, and floating on the waters, it may not be difficult to believe, however the idea of the egg may have come, that the egg thus floating on the wide universal sea might be Noah’s family that contained the whole world in its bosom. Then the application of the word egg to the ark comes thus: The Hebrew name for an egg is Baitz, or in the feminine (for there are both genders), Baitza. This, in Chaldee and Phoenician, becomes Baith or Baitha, which in these languages is also the usual way in which the name of a house is pronounced. *
* The common word “Beth,” “house,” in the Bible without the points, is “Baith,” as may be seen in the name of Bethel, as given in Genesis 35:1, of the Greek Septuagint, where it is “Baith-el.”

The egg floating on the waters that contained the world, was the house floating on the waters of the deluge, with the elements of the new world in its bosom. The coming of the egg from heaven evidently refers to the preparation of the ark by express appointment of God; and the same thing seems clearly implied in the Egyptian story of the mundane egg which was said to have come out of the mouth of the great god. The doves resting on the egg need no explanation. This, then, was
the meaning of the mystic egg in one aspect. As, however, everything that was good or beneficial to mankind was represented in the Chaldean mysteries, as in some way connected with the Babylonian goddess, so the greatest blessing to the human race, which the ark contained in its
bosom, was held to be Astarte, who was the great civiliser and benefactor of the world. Though the deified queen, whom Astarte represented, had no actual existence till some centuries after the
flood, yet through the doctrine of metempsychosis, which was firmly established in Babylon, it was easy for her worshippers to be made to believe that, in a previous incarnation, she had lived in the Antediluvian world, and passed in safety through the waters of the flood. Now the Romish Church adopted this mystic egg of Astarte, and consecrated it as a symbol of Christ’s resurrection. A form of prayer was even appointed to be used in connection with it, Pope Paul V teaching his superstitious votaries thus to pray at Easter: “Bless, O Lord, we beseech thee, this
thy creature of eggs, that it may become a wholesome sustenance unto thy servants, eating it in remembrance of our Lord Jesus Christ, &c” (Scottish Guardian, April, 1844). Besides the mystic egg, there was also another emblem of Easter, the goddess queen of Babylon, and that was the Rimmon or “pomegranate.” With the Rimmon or “pomegranate” in her hand, she is frequently represented in ancient medals, and the house of Rimmon, in which the King of Damascus, the Master of Naaman, the Syrian, worshipped, was in all likelihood a temple of Astarte, where that
goddess with the Rimmon was publicly adored. The pomegranate is a fruit that is full of seeds; and on that account it has been supposed that it was employed as an emblem of that vessel in which the germs of the new creation were preserved, wherewith the world was to be sown anew
with man and with beast, when the desolation of the deluge had passed away. But upon more searching inquiry, it turns out that the Rimmon or “pomegranate” had reference to an entirely different thing. Astarte, or Cybele, was called also Idaia Mater, and the sacred mount in Phrygia,
most famed for the celebration of her mysteries, was named Mount Ida–that is, in Chaldee, the sacred language of these mysteries, the Mount of Knowledge. “Idaia Mater,” then, signifies “the Mother of Knowledge”–in other words, our Mother Eve, who first coveted the “knowledge of good and evil,” and actually purchased it at so dire a price to herself and to all her children. Astarte, as can be abundantly shown, was worshipped not only as an incarnation of the Spirit of God, but also of the mother of mankind.10 When, therefore, the mother of the gods, and the mother of knowledge, was represented with the fruit of the pomegranate in her extended hand (see Fig. 33), inviting those who ascended the sacred mount to initiation in her mysteries, can
there be a doubt what that fruit was intended to signify? Evidently, it must accord with her assumed character; it must be the fruit of the “Tree of Knowledge”–the fruit of that very “Tree, whose mortal taste.
Brought death into the world, and all our woe.”

The knowledge to which the votaries of the Idaean goddess were admitted, was precisely of the same kind as that which Eve derived from the eating of the forbidden fruit, the practical knowledge of all that was morally evil and base. Yet to Astarte, in this character, men were
taught to look at their grand benefactress, as gaining for them knowledge, and blessings connected with that knowledge, which otherwise they might in vain have sought from Him, who
is the Father of lights, from whom cometh down every good and perfect gift. Popery inspires the same feeling in regard to the Romish queen of heaven, and leads its devotees to view the sin of Eve in much the same light as that in which Paganism regarded it.

As discussed in this study already, Asherah is depicted as the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

The ladder, the tree of knowledge, kundalini/the serpent coiling up the tree, bethel are all related.

the tree-trunk or cone of stone which symbolized Asherah was regarded as a Beth-el or “house of the deity*,” wherein the goddess was immanent, the word Asirtu, Asherah, came to denote the symbol of the goddess. The trunk of the tree was often provided with branches, and assumed the form of the tree of life*. It was as a trunk, however, that it was forbidden to be erected by the side of “the altar of Yahweh” (Deu_16:21; see Jdg_6:25, Jdg_6:28, Jdg_6:30; 2Ki_23:6). Accordingly the symbol made for Asherah by his mother was “cut down” by Asa (1Ki_15:13). So, too, we hear of Asherim or symbols of the goddess being set up on the high places under the shade of a green tree (Jer_17:2; see 2Ki_17:10). Manasseh introduced one into the temple at Jerusalem (2Ki_21:3, 2Ki_21:7).

Tree – Egg connection

The Scandinavian world-tree, Yggdrasil, supports on its branches nine spheres or worlds – which the Egyptians symbolized by the nine stamens of the persea or avocado. All of these are enclosed within the mysterious tenth sphere or cosmic egg – the definitionless Cipher of the Mysteries. The Qabbalistic tree of the Jews also consists of nine branches, or worlds, emanating from the First Cause or Crown, which surrounds its emanations as the shell surrounds the eggManly Palmer Hall

The Psychosynthesis egg, like the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, on which it was modelled, is an excellent synthetic container for understanding and working with the psyche from an experiential perspective.

http://www.willparfitt.com/assag.html

Sheldon Kramer , the American author and psychologist, researching Assagioli’s library in Florence, found papers written by Assagioli on Judaism and Jewish mysticism. Most striking are writings which mention a psychospiritual description of the psyche that exactly matches that in the Kabbalah: ‘…the traditional Jewish teaching of the human psychological condition consisting of three elements: nefesh, ruach, and neshamah … my main endeavor has been to give scientific proof of the existence and activity of the spiritual soul (neshamah) with the psyche (ruach) as an inspiring and unifying factor.’

So what is the relevance of these terms nefesh, ruach and neshamah? They describe quite complex ideas that have whole Kabbalistic books written about them. Put simply, nefesh corresponds to the lower unconscious (including the basic activity of subpersonalities); ruach corresponds to the middle unconscious (including the personal ‘I’); and neshamah to the higher unconscious (including all the Soul Qualities familiar to psychosynthesis practitioners, and the ‘Self’). These three parts (or perhaps more correctly, activities) of the human being have been compared to a candle flame. The blue/black part of the flame, at the bottom nearest the candle, constantly changing, ‘invisible’ to regular sight, is the nefesh or animal soul. It corresponds to the id and ego, being reactive, and based on inner and outer desires. The middle, more usually visible portion of a candle flame, the yellowish glow in the centre, is equivalent to the ruach. It burns with a steady light, and conveys a sense of continuity and certainty. The light at the top of the candle, the white flickering edge of the flame, corresponds to neshamah, the higher Self.

These three aspects, nefesh, ruach and neshamah, correspond exactly to the three divisions Assagioli assigned to his diagram of the human psyche, the well-known ‘egg diagram’. It is interesting to note that the shape of the egg is suggestive of a candle flame in itself. By being egg shaped, it also brings the psychosynthesis model into alignment with Western esoteric teachings that describe the energy bodies of a human being as being egg shaped. The Kabbalistic diagram known as the Tree of Life, which is also divided into these same three divisions, is often drawn as enclosed in a vesica or egg shaped container.

There are three columns or pillars on the Kabalistic Tree of Life. The left-hand pillar is “Severity,” the right-hand pillar is “Mercy,” and the central pillar is that known as “Equilibrium.” There are three sephiroth on each pillar. The presence of the number three denotes the Druids and Arya. These three pillars or paths of ascent correspond with the Ida, Pingala, and Sushumna pathways in the Vedic (Aryan) system of yoga.

“The Word symbolizing perfection cannot be attained if Wisdom, Strength and Beauty are not all present and in perfect accord.”

The Word spoken of here is the lost Word of Freemasonry or the ‘Master’s Word.’ More on this below.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 274
“Under the appellations of the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is concealed the great arcanum of antiquity–the mystery of equilibrium. The Tree of Life represents the spiritual point of balance–the secret of immortality. The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, as its name implies, represents polarity, or unbalance–the secret of mortality. The Qabbalists reveal this by assigning the central column of their Sephirothic diagram to the Tree of Life and the two side branches to the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. “Unbalanced forces perish in the void,” declares the secret work, and all is made known. The apple represents the knowledge of the procreative processes, by the awakening of which the material universe was established.

The allegory of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is a cosmic myth, revealing the methods of universal and individual establishment. The literal story, accepted for so many centuries by an unthinking world, is preposterous, but the creative mystery of which it is the symbol is one of Nature’s profoundest verities. The Ophites (serpent worshipers) revered the Edenic snake because it was the cause of individual existence. Though humanity is still wandering in a world of good and evil, it will ultimately attain completion and eat of the fruit of the Tree of Life growing in the midst of the illusionary garden of worldly things. Thus the Tree of Life is also the appointed symbol of the Mysteries, and by partaking of its fruit man attains immortality.”

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 381
“The human body, like that of the universe, is considered to be a material expression of ten globes or spheres of light. Therefore man is called the Microcosm–the little world, built in the image of the great world of which he is a part. The Qabbalists also established a mysterious universal man with his head at A 1 and his feet at D 10 {speaking of the 10 sephirot}. This is probably the secret significance of the great figure of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, with its head in the World of Atziluth, its arms and hands in the World of Briah, its generative system in the World of Yetzirah, and its legs and feet in the World of Assiah.

This is the Grand Man of the Zohar, of whom Eliphas Levi writes: “It is not less astonishing to observe at the beginning of the Zohar the profundity of its notions and the sublime simplicity of its images. It is said as follows: ‘The science of equilibrium is the key of occult science.”

Albert Pike sums up the essence of the Mystery religions.

Morals and Dogma pg 859
“…The Mystery of the Balance. It is the Secret of the Universal Equilibrium…” He continues on pg 861, “And this Equilibrium teaches us, above all, to reverence ourselves as immortal souls, and to have respect and charity for others, who are even such as we are, partakers with us of the Divine Nature, lighted by a ray of Divine Intelligence, struggling, like us, towards the light; capable, like us, of progress upward toward perfection…”

Morals and Dogma pg 861

The phrase ‘gloria dei est celare verbum’ used by Pike comes from the Latin Vulgate on Proverbs 25:2, ‘the glory of Elohim is to conceal a matter.’  This is the essence of the Tree of Life vs. the tree of knowledge.  YHWH does conceal things in His Word but it is to keep unregenerate man from taking His Truth and perverting it (Genesis 3:22-24;Isaiah 6:10).  Proverbs 25:2 literally says the glory of Elohim is to hide the Word, but the glory of kings is to search out the Word.  We are to seek Him and His Word, it is then that we are given Wisdom.  The mysteries corrupt this and make the Almighty into a conniving deceiver who makes men jump through hoops and climb ladders of initiation in order to gain more and more mystical, mysterious knowledge that never leads to the Truth (2 Timothy 3:7).

The Mysteries teach that man is already immortal, knowing good and evil. He is in the process of ascending to perfection, to godhood. The Scriptures teach that man is mortal and can only put on immortality through the resurrection in Messiah Yahshua. Only those who are in Him are partakers of the Divine Nature, whereas the Mysteries teach that man already stakes that claim.

Ultimately, there are two choices man must make when it comes to celebrating holidays.  YHWH or the adversary.  The tree of life or the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  The Feasts of YHWH all point to the Kingdom of Heaven coming to earth, the 1st and 2nd comings of Messiah Yahshua.  The holidays of satan are the same thing.  It is the counterfeit kingdom coming to earth, spoken of in the Holy Scriptures as the kingdom of the beast.  The customs of both systems are shadow pictures of the Kingdom they represent.  Man can choose to be a part of the wedding rehearsals of Messiah Yahshua and be His bride, or they can rehearse the wedding of the beast and be his bride.  Messiah Yahshua said that those who love Him will keep His commandments.  So to, those who love satan will walk in lawlessness.

Feast – Temple connection

The root word for ‘moed’ (feast) is ‘ad’ which means ‘see the door.’  This is speaking of the Temple as well as the Messiah (John 10:7).  The purpose of the feasts is to bring man to the door of the Temple/Tabernacle, that he might enter in and dine with the Most High (Revelation 3:20).

The Feasts of YHWH keep believers in His cycles of righteousness which leads to the Temple of YHWH, to Messiah Yahshua.  The feasts of the beast keep men on the path of blind which leads to the synagogue of satan, to the antichrist beast.

The Temple & Time

Isa 57:15  For so says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity{עד}, and His name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, even with the contrite and humble of spirit; to make live the spirit of the humble and to make live the heart of the contrite ones.

Eternity in this verse is from:

His Name is linked with Time

The Temple was a place for His Name (1 Kings 5:5; 8:29; Jeremiah 7:12)  A place where Eternity could manifest in the time-space continuum.

Temple at the Center of Time – David Flynn pg 51
“[Isaac] Newton’s fluency in ancient Greek, Hebrew and Latin helped him a great deal, granting him understanding that the word ‘temple’ was related to ‘time.’
For example ‘ temple in Latin has the meaning: [tempus, tempor, time.]  [templum, a space marked out, a building dedicated to a god, temple.] [tempora pl., the fitting or appointed time]

This is confirmed in the Hebrew.  One of the names of the Tabernacle is ‘ohel moed’ which is translated as tent of meeting or the tabernace of the congregation.  Ohel means tent and moed means appointed time.

The root meaning of mo’ed is to repeat or do again.  It is a cyclical word.  Moed is many times translated as ‘feast’ and not surprisingly the other Hebrew word for feast, ‘chag’ means a circle.

Temple at the Center of Time pg 16-17
The revolution of science that Newton single-handedly achieved in Principia was primarily that the laws of motion and gravity, and the nature of space and time, had not manifested apart from his belief in the immutable truths of the Bible.  From its pages, Newton found the path towards discovery in the natural universe.  By his own words, the Bible was his source of inspiration for every theory that he conceived.

“Newton believed that the code of civil and religious truth that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai also contained the physical laws of creation.  Because the central focus of the Torah was the ‘Ark of the Law’ and later the temple that housed it, Newton reasoned that the unifying theory of dimension should also be contained within both.”

Temple at the Center of Time pg 46
“Newton held the divine dimensions within the Temple of Solomon equal with the physical order of God’s creation, an order that was preserved in the length of the sacred cubit.  Newton included statements of the temple’s design in context with the form and fulfillment of prophecy in his work Lexicon Propheticum (Dictionary of Prophecy), in which he says, ‘This structure commends itself by the utmost simplicity and harmony of all its proportions.’”
“In the late 1500s, the Spanish Jesuits Hieronymo Prado and his student Juan Bautista Villalpando wrote Explanationes in Ezechielem, in which he described the dimensions of Ezekiel’s temple in relations to the platonic structure of music, the order of the heavens and the design of creation.  This work brought into focus the Renaissance ide of the temple as a microcosm of God’s creation, embodying the order of the universe.”

Temple at the Center of Time pg 52
David Flynn quotes the Maharal “HaMakom V’HaZman Echad Hu”, Time and Space are One.

Maimonides in Guide to the Perplexed stated:
“Time is an accident consequent upon motion and is necessarily attached to it.  Neither of them exists without the other.  Motions does not exist except in time, and time cannot be conceived by the intellect except together with motion.  And all that with regard to which no motion can be found, does not fall under time.”

Navigation on the waters

Temple at the Center of Time pg 65-67

“From the greatest antiquity, the art of navigation has demonstrated a link between the heavens and earth.  On the sea and in deserts without changing horizons, the sun, moon, and stars are the only reliable guides.  The angle of the North star above the horizon reveals the latitude of the observer.  Howerver, the calculation of longitude (location east or west of a fixed point) is based on the precise timing of the sun or stars at their zenith (highest point in their travel across the sky).  Both latitude and longitude are based on 360 degrees in a circle and the number of minutes and seconds in an hour (60).”

“In the New Testament, the Greek word naus means both a ‘center of the temple’ where the Ark stood in the Holy of Holies (Matthew 23:17) and ‘ship’ (Acts 27:41)….Naus is also the origin for the word nautical.  Greek nau-tes which is related to the Hebrew word navta meaning ‘to stretch out’, ‘to move or travel’ and even a ‘measuring line,’ found in Job 38:5, Isaiah 44:13, and Lamentations 2:8″

“In nautical terms, time and distance are related.  The speed that a ship travels across the water is the ‘knot,’ which is defined as on nautical mile per hour.  The number of degrees of travel determines nautical miles over the Earth multiplied by 60 minutes in an hour.  Distance in these dgrees is calibrated using the terms ‘arc minutes’ and ‘arc seconds.’  This is, of course, due to the curvature of the Earth.”

As seen above, the Holy of Holies is called a ‘naus’ in Greek.  In Hebrew it is ‘debir’ (1 Kings 6:5).  Debir = the Word.

Temple at the Center of Time pg 91
“Motion cannot exist without time.  Time does not exist without motion.  The laws of space, gravity, and time bind us in our reality.

Temple at the Center of Time pg 102
“Nautical miles are based on the ration of degrees in a circle to minutes in an hour.  The 360 degree circle and the 60 minute hour have existed from the birth of civilization.  Each degree of the great circle of the Earth equals 60 nautical miles.  the circumference of the earth is therefore 21,600 miles (360 x 60).  This is related to the value of the common cubit, which is 21.60 inches.

Temple at the Center of Time pg 84-85
“The Israelite’s cubit in the time of Moses until Solomon was equal to 25.20 modern inches.”

Flanders Petrie in his study of ancient calibration called ‘Inductive Metrology’ pg 67 stated that the sacred cubit (25.20 inches) was the standard for all other measures including the British inch.

Interestingly, the Right Hand of YHWH that created and stretched forth/measured the Heavens is connected to this 25.20 number.  In the handwriting on the wall in the book of Daniel the following Hebrew words were written.

Dan 5:25  And this is the writing that was written: A MINA, A MINA, A SHEKEL, AND HALF MINAS.
Dan 5:26  This is the meaning of the thing: A MINA: God has numbered your kingdom and finished it.
Dan 5:27  A SHEKEL: You are weighed in the balances and found lacking.
Dan 5:28  HALF MINAS: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.

“MENE MENE TEKEL UPARSIN, were actually monetary values.  These are described as the standards of weight for use in Ezekiel’s future temple in Jerusalem {Ezekiel 45:12}:  ‘And the shekel (TEKEL) shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh (MINAH).’  The numeric quantity represented were units of ancient Chaldean weights and measures.
The gerah was the smallest proportion of weight used in Babylonian commerce at the time.  Mene (1,000 gerahs), Mene (1,000 gerahs, Tekel (20 gerahs), and Peres, to divide the Mene (500 gerahs) equals 2,520.”

Temple at the Center of Time pg 86-87
“The ancient Jewish sages maintained that time and space were of the same distinction, implying that they mirror each other in shape….the pattern of both, according to the Law of God, is based on the number 2,520 and its fractal in the sacred cubit, 25.20.

It is significant that this number, encoded in the writing of the wall, manifested through the agency of a ‘hand,’ maintains the ancient metaphor of the ‘finger or hand of God’ working His will in the material universe.

However, it is the arm that extends the hand and fingers.  These work to execute the will, to create, write, and even make war.  The cubit was directly representative of these functions, and was the linear standard of all creation.  James Strong (1822-1894), professor of biblical literature and exegetical theology at Troy University, further explained this concept:
‘In the figurative idiom of the Hebrew its name is characteristically amah, which is merely a variation of the word em, a mother, not so much because the forearm is the mother of the entire arm, but because the cubit (or ulna) is the ‘mother,’ as it were, of all dimensions whether in the human body or elsewhere.’”

“In his Prolegomena to a Lexicon propheticumhe, Newton lists the Sacred Cubit as 7 palms… The 7-palm cubit would stand out as sacred due to its relation to the number 7.  Seven is the only number that does not divide evenly into 360.  The sacred number, 2,520, (100 times the sacred cubit) is also the result of 360 x 7.”

The division of the day, from sunset to sunset, is the course of the sun moving in a circle around the earth (360 degrees).  A week is 7 times 360 which is 2,520.  This number points to the kingdom of Heaven in that 7 days corresponds to the 7,000 year plan of Elohim.  This will be discussed in more detail in the future, Yah willing.  The fall of Babylon and Belshazzar’s demise is related to the fall of Jericho where Yisrael was commanded to go around it’s wall’s in a specific way related to this 7 day prophetic picture.

Temple at the Center of Time pg 117
“There is far more significance to this story.  It is a lesson of the divine proportion.

Joshua 6:3 says, ‘You shall compass the city…and go round about the city once.  Thus shalt thou do six days.’

The six-fold compassing of Jericho yields and exquisite yet simple equation, and its intrinsic meaning fits the astronomical works and theories of Issac Newton.

‘Jericho,’ literally translated, means the moon (or Moon city), and is a homonym of the Hebrew word for ‘thrown down place.’

The Ark made six circles of 360 degrees around Jericho totaling 2,160 degrees….In circumscribing 2,160 degrees of Jericho with the Ark, the Israelites marked the diameter of the moon in modern statute miles.  The circumference (the distance around the moon) is found by multiplying 2,160 by the number 3.14159265.  This number is symbolized by the Greek letter π.  3.14159265 x 2,160 = 6,785.8401 miles.”

On the 7th day, Yisrael encompassed Jericho 7 times.  7 x 360 = 2,520.  Using 2,520 and multiplying it by π, we get the diameter of the earth.

2,520 x 3.14159265 = 7,916.813 statute miles.

David Flynn makes numerous, fascinating connections between distance and time in his book Temple at the Center of Time. Jerusalem fell to Babylon in 587 BC which is the distance between those two countries in statute miles.

In 1799, Napoleon declares Palestine to be the homeland of the Jews, which gave him the status of Messiah as seen in part 11click here. Paris is 1,799 nautical miles from Jerusalem.

In 1948 Israel was declared a nation. It is no surprise that London is 1,948 nautical miles from Jerusalem. For more details on Britain’s connection to the ‘birth’ of the state of Israel, see part 11click here.

666 & Time

666 is also linked to time and distance in relation to Jerusalem. As discussed above, the Biblical definition of the location of the Garden of Eden was in Jerusalem. The ‘scholars’ of the world state that Eden was in the modern day land of Iraq. Eden, Iraq is exactly 666 nautical miles from Jerusalem.

Temple at the Center of Time pg 220
“The number 666 represents the full counterfeit authority of Satan over mankind. The Antichrist will usurp the symbols of Christ and distort them to fit the same pagan corruptions from antiquity. He will be accepted as the true messiah by the inhabitants of the earth and set himself in the temple of God claiming to be God.”

Temple at the Center of Time pg 220-221
In the Old Testament, 1 Kings 10:14, King Solomon acquired 666 talents of gold in one year for the construction of his palace. This he built while also constructing the temple of God. This number is also found connected with the census of the priests that rebuilt the temple af the the exile in Babylon. Besides Revelation, these are the only other places in the Bible that mention the number yet both connect it with the temple’s construction. Six hundred sixty-six also shows up in the chronology of the first and second temples and the empires that oppressed Israel. The Assyrian empire lasted 666 years before it was conquered by Babylon. The Roman Empire occupied Jerusalem for 666 years between the battle of Actium in 31 BC to the Saracen conquest in AD 636.”

Temple at the Center of Time pg 221
“The Temple of Solomon was destroyed by the Babylonians in 587 BC and the second, build by Zerubbabel, was destroyed in AD 70 by the Romans. Both temples fell on the same day of the Hebrew calendar, the 9th of Av. The number of years between each temple’s demise measured in 360 day biblical years is 666 years.

The temples built by those initiated into the Mystery religions was also based upon time.  As seen above, the Biblical calendar was designed to keep man in cycles of righteousness to prepare them for the first and second comings of Messiah.  So too, the counterfeit calendar is designed to point to the kingdom of the beast and his ‘advent.’

Temples of the Americas

Author Graham Hancock, in his book Fingerprints of the gods, brings forth evidence that the main ‘god’ of South America was the same being that went by multiple names according to the culture.  Viracocha, Kukulkan, Quetzalcoatl, etc.  When tracing their names back in their native languages, they each have similar meanings of a Plumed/feathered serpent.  Hence, the temples built to these god(s) were temples to the serpent.

Fingerprints of the gods pg 103
“All legends stated unambiguously that Quetzalcoatl/Kukulkan/Gucumatx/Votan/Itzamana had arrived in Central America from somewhere very far away (across the ‘Eastern Sea’) and that amid gread sadness he had eventually sailed off again in the diretion whence he had come.  The legends added that he had promised solemnly that he would return one day…”

The ‘gods’ of the Americas were identical with Osiris of Egypt.

Fingerprints of the Gods pg 391-392
“Osiris is depicted as human but also superhuman, suffering but at the same time commanding  Moreover, he expresses his essential dualism by ruling in heaven (as the constellation Orion) and on earth as a king among men.  Like Viracocha in the Andes and Quetzalcoatl in Central America, his ways are subtle and mysterious.  Like them, he is exceptionally tall and always depicted wearing the curved beard of divinity.  And like them too, although he has supernatural powers at his disposal, he avoids the use of force wherever possible.”

Hancock writes that Quetzalcoatl, as well as the others, came and brought ‘golden ages.’  They taught the knowledge of writing, mathematics, metallurgy, masonry, astronomy, etc.  Very reminiscent of Hermes and even further the fallen angels of the days of Noah, in specific Azazel.

The Temple of Kukulkan consisted of four stairways of 91 steps each with a total overall of 365 for the 365 days of the solar year.  The temple was designed so that on the spring and autumnal equinoxes shadows of light are combined on the northern staircase to form a giant undulating serpent.

Mayans

Fingerprints of the gods pg 156
“The Maya knew where their advanced learning originated.  It was handed down to them, they said, from the First Men, the creatures of Quetzalcoatl…”

The Mayans were advanced mathematicians and astronomers.  They calculated the solar year to 365.2420 and the orbit of the moon to 29.528395 which are both nearly identical to the calcuations found by modern science.  They also possessed accurate tables for predicting solar and lunar eclipses. (Fingerprints of the gods pg 159)

Much has been said of the Mayan calendar and the supposed end of the world at the winter solstice in 2012.

Not only were the temples of  Central & South America designed after the movements of the heavenly bodies, they were also designed with the desire to bring about the concept of ‘as above, so below.’

Teotihuacan

Fingerprints of the Gods pg 165

Fingerprints of the gods pg 166
“…Teotihuacan had been designed as a kind of ‘map of heaven’: ‘It was reproduced on earth a supposed celestial plan of the sky-world where dwelt the deities and spirits of the dead.’”

Fingerprints of the gods pg 167
“Teotihuacan might originally have been designed as a precise scale-model of the solar system.  At any rate, if the centre line of the Temple of Quetzalcoatl were taken as denoting the position of the sun, markers laid out northwards from it along the axis of the Street of the Dead seemed to indicate the correct orbital distances of the inner planets, the asteroid belt, Jupiter, Saturn (represented by the so-called ‘Sun’ Pyramid), Uranus (by the ‘Moon’ pyramid), and Neptune and Pluto by as yet unexcavated mounds some kilometres farther north”

The six stage pyramid stood 72 feet high, a number which is significant to current study, to say the least.

Fingerprints of the Gods pg 257-258
12 – number of constellations in the zodiac

30- number of degrees allocated along the ecliptic to each zodiacal constellation

72 – the number of years required for the equinoctial sun to complete a precessional shift of one degree along the ecliptic

360 – the total number of degrees in the ecliptic

72 x 360 = 2160 – the number of years required for the sun to complete a passage of 30 degrees along the ecliptic, i.e., to pass entirely through any one of the 12 zodiacal constellations

2160 x 12 (or 360 x 72) = 25,920 – the number of years in one complete precessional cycle or ‘Great Year’, and thus the total number of years required to bring about the ‘Great Return’.

36 – number of years required for the equinoctial sun to complete a precessional shift of half a degree along the ecliptic

4320 – number of years required for the equinoctial sun to complete a precessional shift of 60 degrees (i. e., two zodiacal constellations).

Fingerprints of the Gods pg 258
“The pre-eminent number in the code is 72.  To this is frequently added 36, making 108, and it is permissible to multiply 108 by 100 to get 10,800 or to divide it by 2 to get 54, which may then be multipled by 10 and expressed as 540″ etc..

The temples of Teotihuacan were designed after the kingdom of ‘heaven’ brought by the serpent.

Fingerprints of the gods pg 166
“The predominant sculptural motif was a series of huge serpent heads protruding three-dimensionally out of the facing blocks and lining the sides of the massive central stairway.  The elongated jaws of these oddly humanoid reptiles were heavily endowed with fangs, and the upper lips with a sort of handlebar moustache.  Each serpent’s thick neck was ringed by an elaborate plume of feathers – the unmistakeable symbol of Quetzalcoatl.”

Graham Hancock found that the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan was situated in such a manner that an interesting sight was seen on the Spring and Autumn equinoxes.

Fingerprints of the gods pg 175-176
“A more curious but equally deliberate effect could be observed on the equinoxes, 20 March and 22 September.  Then the passage of the sun’s rays from south to north resulted at noon in the progressive obliteration of a perfectly straight shadow that ran along one of the lower stages of the western facade.  The whole process, from complete shadow to complete illumination, took exactly 66.6 seconds.

The Pyramids of Giza were designed in the same manner with the ‘as above, so below’ principle being applied.  More on the Pyramids below.

Hancock observes that both the pyramids of Central America and the Giza pyramids served not only similar functions in regards to being earthly representations of the heavenlines, but also were where ‘men turned into gods.’

Fingerprints of the gods pg 170
“Attached to them [Aztec cities], however, was a thread of local legend, passed down from generation to generation, which asserted that they [the cities] had been built by giants and that their purpose had been to transform men into gods.”

Π (Pi)

The Pyramid of the Sun was built following the equation of  Pi, just as the Great Pyramids were.  This will be discussed in more detail below in the section on the Pyramids but the important thing to note here is that Pi points to the Messiah, as seen in the study Messiah in the Torah: Genesis 1:6-8click here.  Therefore this temple was designed to be a counterfeit of the Messiah, who is also seen in nature in the sunclick here.

Temples

As seen in previous studies, the rebuilding of The Temple is at the forefront of desires of the enemy.

The Tabernace/Temple was built after the pattern of Heaven.  ‘As it is in Heaven, so here on earth.’

Exo 25:9  According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
Exo 25:40  And see that they are made by their patterns which you were caused to see in the mountain.
1Ch 28:19  All was in writing from the hand of YHWH. He caused me to understand all the work of the pattern.

The word for pattern in Hebrew is ‘tabniyt.’

This word comes from the root ‘ben,’ meaning a ‘son.’

The patterns, types, and shadows in the Scriptures point to the SON
Heb 9:24  For Christ did not enter into the Holy of Holies made by hands, types of the true things, but into Heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf,
Heb 10:1  For the Law had a shadow of the coming good things, not the image itself of those things. Appearing year by year with the same sacrifices, which they offer continually, they never are able to perfect the ones drawing near.
Heb 8:5  who serve the pattern of and shadow of heavenly things, even as Moses was divinely warned, being about to make the tabernacle: For He says, “See that you make all things according to the pattern being shown to you in the mount.” Exodus 25:40

The Tabernacle/Temple system was instituted to point man to Yahshua.  The sacrifices which were performed in their various ways are the most important aspect of the system for it is only through the shedding of blood that forgiveness of sins can occur (Leviticus 17:11).   Each detail of the design and functions of the Tabernacle/Temple system point to Messiah Yahshua.  It is not the purpose of this study to go into depth on this subject, this will be discussed in more detail in the studies of ‘Messiah in the Torah,’ Yah willing.

Temple Man

The Temple was a shadow of Messiah, and consequently His body.  Believers collectively make up His body but also individually represent the Temple as well.

Messiah has reconnected heaven and earth.  As it is in Heaven, so it is here on earth can only be realized through Him.  The counterfeit  of ‘as above, so below’ points to the beast who attempts to bring ‘heaven’ to earth, the kingdom of Lucifer.

Col 1:17  And He is before all things, and all things have subsisted in Him.
Col 1:18  And He is the Head of the body, the assembly, who is the Beginning, the First-born out of the dead, that He be preeminent in all things;
Col 1:19  because all the fullness was pleased to dwell in Him,
Col 1:20  and through Him making peace by the blood of His cross, to reconcile all things to Himself; through Him, whether the things on the earth, or the things in the heavens.

1Ti 2:5  For God is one, also there is one Mediator* of God and of men, the Man Christ Jesus,

*This word in Greek is ‘mesites’ which is used in the Septuagint to translate the Hebrew word ‘bayin’ which means ‘between.’  The root of ‘bayin’ is ‘ben,’ mentioned above.

The human body is the Temple of Elohim.

Exo 25:8  And let them make a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell in their midst.
2Co 6:16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Co 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2Co 6:18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

1Co 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1Co 3:17  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

By examining the structure of the tabernacle and the functions of the priests therein, one can begin to understand the structure and function of Elohim’s (God’s) spiritual embodiment (Heb. 9:1-10). The tabernacle is composed of three compartments, divided by veils, with a total of nine major vessels therein. The second veil divided the Most Holy Place from the Holy Place. It was blue, purple, scarlet, and lavishly embellished with angels or cherubim. There was a first veil that divided the Holy Place and Court Round About. It had the same colors and embellishments with angels as the second veil. But the angels were only on the inside of the first veil facing the Holy Place.

The three compartments of the tabernacle explain the structure of Spirit or the Godhead.

1. Most Holy Place by the Pattern is correlated to Yahweh – the Father.

2. Holy Place by the Pattern is correlated to Elohim – Word or Son.

3. Court Round About by the Pattern is correlated to Yahshua the Messiah – the personification of the Holy Spirit in concrete form. Now these three compartments makeup one tabernacle not three separate ones.

The Apostle John explains the Godhead in 1 John 5:7-8, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.”

Now to prove that the Father Yahweh, Pure Spirit, has three states, we must examine the things that are made in the physical universe. The apostle Paul said: “Because that which may be known of Elohim is manifest in them; for Elohim (God) hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Supernal nature (Godhead); so that they are without excuse: (Rom. 1:19-20)”

Now there are three states and conditions of Spirit, the ultimate source and substance of all things visible and invisible:

(1. The Father; 2. The Word or Son; and 3. The Holy Spirit).

Matter is created from Spirit or is Spirit materialized into its lowest state. Physical matter must reflect the characteristics of Spirit, the parent source and substance, just as man or any other life form inherits or reflects the characteristics or traits genetically of his parents. Thus matter must be three-fold to reflect the three states of Spirit. The three states of matter are:

1. Gas

2. Liquid

3. Solid

And all matter is composed of atoms which are also three-fold:

1. Proton

2. Neutron

3. Electron.

By comparing the characteristics of each state of matter with the Godhead, one is able to understand or conceptualize the three states of spirit. For example, the gaseous state of matter is invisible, likened unto Yahweh Pure Spirit, who is also invisible, incomprehensible, and inscrutable, the source and substance of all things visible (Physical realm) and invisible (Angelic Realm). The next state of matter is liquid that is visible, and takes on the form of its container. Liquid can be likened unto Elohim that takes on shape and form of a man in visions and revelations within the confines of man’s mind (Exo. 24:9-10; Ezek. 1:26). The lowest state of matter is solid that is concrete and has a definite shape and volume, likened unto Elohim or the Word made flesh (who the world calls Jesus Christ), who can be observed with the physical senses (I Tim. 3:16). These analogies and comparisons of the three states of matter with the three states of spirit prove the nature and operation of Spirit and enables one to have the correct image of it.

From the above comparative analysis, the tabernacle pattern, or the “Philosophical Measuring Rod,” proves that there are three manifestations or states and conditions of the One Spirit (Deut. 6:4) as compared with the states of matter:

1. Yahweh, The Pure Spirit -Abstract State, (Most Holy Place by the Pattern) the invisible, inscrutable principle has no shape and form and often depicts Himself as a cloud. This correlates with the gaseous state of matter.  (Lev. 16:2; Deut. 4:12; Matt. 17:5)

2. Elohim, the Word or Son -Intermediate State, (Holy Place by the Pattern) is visible only in visions and revelations. Elohim is Spirit or the Father, in part not totality, in shape and form of a man (Ex. 24:9-10; Jn. 1:1-4; 5:37). This is correlated with the liquid state of matter.

3. Yahshua the Messiah-Concrete State, (Court Round About by the Pattern) or Jesus Christ is Elohim in a physical body, the visible manifestation of Spirit (Col. 1:15-17; Jn. 1:14). This is correlated with the solid state of matter.

Now there are also three states of time: 1. Future; 2. Present; 3. Past. (See diagram 4 for the comparison by the three-fold pattern). We can make the same comparison about “time”, being three-fold, as are the three states of matter and the three states of Spirit. For example very little is known about the future for a certainty (the Most Holy Place by the pattern). Likewise nothing can be understood about the Pure Spirit State of Yahweh the Father. He is Inscrutable and Incomprehensible or an Abstraction in this state and condition to man’s finite mind. An understanding of the future can be obtained by understanding the present (the Holy Place by the pattern) and the past (the Court Round About by the pattern). Likewise it is Elohim or the Son and the Messiah in the flesh that reveals the Father to us. We have an understanding of the present by having a understanding of the past. It is the past which we understand the most, just as we have the most understanding of Elohim while he was made flesh as the Messiah (Jn. 1:14; 1 Tim. 3:16).

Does The Body’s Formation Confirm the Structure of the GodHead?

Science also shows that these three states of Spirit are found in the formation of man. Human beings, like chickens or any other life form, come from a seed or an egg. All life forms in their beginning are without any shape and form. They are nothing more than genetic codes or genes and chromosomes, just as the earth was without form and void in its beginning (Gen. 1:1-3). This further proves that the Father Yahweh, Pure Spirit, has no shape and form.

It is known that the implanted human fertilized egg, with the genetic code therein, begins to take on shape and form in a orderly fashion in the womb of a woman invisible to the human eye. This shows forth that Yahweh the Father in part took on the shape and form of a man that can be seen only in visions. See Diagram 1. Finally the baby is visibly seen after coming through the woman’s birth canal.
The three germ cell layers of the fertilized human ovum that forms all the body’s tissues and organs to the 3-fold pattern. They are:

1. Endodermal (the inner cell layer) that forms the stomach, lungs etc.;

2. Mesodermal (middle cell layer) that forms bones, muscles, joints, blood vessels, etc.;

3. Ectodermal (outer cell layer) that forms the skin, the nervous system, etc.

Each cell that makes up these layers are three-fold:

1. Nucleolus

2. Nucleus

3. Cell body

Continuing with the structure of the tabernacle, there are three vessels, in principle, in each compartment

1. THE MOST HOLY PLACE

(Entrance into it called the second vail

Heb. 9:3; Ex. 26:31-35)

A. The Ark of the Covenant and its two Cherubim of Glory with their wings overshadowing the Mercy Seat, contains the Ten Commandment Law written on tables of stones. (A Blue, Purple, and Scarlet colored Vail, lavishly embellished with Angelic figures divided the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place. (Heb. 9:4-5; Ex. 37: 1-9).

2. THE HOLY PLACE

(Entrance into it called the first vail or Door)

(Ex. 26:36-37)

A. The Golden Altar of Incense

(Ex. 30:1-10; 25-28)

B. The Golden Seven Branch Candlestick

(Ex. 37:17-23)

C. The Golden Table of Shewbread

(Ex. 37:10-16)

3. THE COURT ROUND ABOUT

(entrance into it called the Strait Gate)

(Ex. 27:16; 38:18-20)

A. The Brazen Cup of Holy Anointing Oil

(Ex. 30:23-38; 37:29)

B. The Brazen Laver (containing the water for

washing of the priests Ex. 30:17-20)

C. The Brazen Altar of Sin Sacrifice (Ex. 27:1-8;

Ex. 38:1-7)

These nine vessels in the tabernacle reflect or can be correlated with the nine divine attributes that make up Yahweh-Elohim’s spiritual embodiment, in part, not totality. They are: 1. Intelligence, 2. Wisdom, 3. Knowledge, 4. Beauty, 5. Love, 6. Justice, 7. Foundation, 8. Power, 9. Strength. The physical body has nine systems to reflect this; 1. Nervous System, 2. Reproduction System, 3. Endocrine System, 4. Respiratory System, 5. Circulatory System, 6. Excretory System, 7. Digestion System, 8. Muscular System, 9. Skeleton System. There are nine planets in our solar system that revolve around the sun. All these witnesses prove that Yahweh is the source and substance of all things. Yahweh is Pure Spirit composed of nine principle attributes.

“This pattern is a divine one because it is Yahweh’s pattern and all things in the creation can be found to follow this 3-fold pattern: from the atom (proton, neutron, electron{s}) to man (head cavity, chest cavity, abdominal cavity). The pillars and boards, which were used to carry the Tabernacle around during the Wilderness years are like our arms and legs and they are also threefold: hand, forearm, upper arm – foot, calf, thigh! Even our fingers are threefold. Additionally, one can actually see the relationship between the furnishings in the different compartments of the Tabernacle and comparable organs in the body such as: (there are many more)

* Most Holy Place (MHP) – Head Cavity of Body
1.
On the Ark of the Covenant (Ex 25:16-22) was a mercy seat upon which during the Day of Atonement, if the ritual were performed correctly, the High Priest would see the flashing of the Shekinah which was a vision of Elohim in a cloud and this is likened unto our brains which are like a cloud with white and grey matter and is where Elohim actually appears when He writes His spirit law in our minds (Jer 31:31-34).
2. We have a right and left brain both of which have message and action functions just as the cherubim which represent the angels Gabriel (Luke 1:26) and Michael (Rev 12:8) have similar functions. They stand to the right and left of the ark with their wings covering the mercy seat just as our brain has a covering between the right and left lobes.
3. In the ark were the 2 tablets of stone upon which were written the 10 Commandments that ruled Israel and our brains contain 10 hormones in our 2-lobe Pituitary gland that rules our entire body.
4. The opening (covered by 2 doors) on the front of the ark which makes the stone tablets of the 10-commandment law therein acessible, the law that spoke to Israel for 1490 years, is a type of our 2 lips covering our mouth out of which comes our law which runs our social interactions.
5. Veil between the MHP and HP: colors are red, blue, and purple likened unto the arteries, veins, and thyroid gland respectively in our neck (iodine, an element with the atomic number of 53, means “violet” and is that which is required for the thyroid gland to secrete its hormone).

* Holy Place (HP) – Chest Cavity of Body
1.
The altar of incense (Ex.30:1) is likened unto the lungs in our body which breathe air in and out perpetually in order for us to remain alive just as the incense wafted perpetually into the MHP and which incense had to be made correctly or death was the result (Ex 30:9; Num 3:4). Those incense ingredients were 4 specific ones and air is predominently comprised of 4 gases: oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen. Just as the incense burns in the incenser so does oxygen burn in our bodies. The incense was a “sweet fragrance unto Yahweh” just as good air is sweet to our bodies.
2. The table of shew bread that is trimmed around the edges with two golden crowns (Ex.25:23-25) and upon which sits 12 loaves of bread is likened unto our heart that has two large coronary (meaning crown) arteries surrounding it. The heart pumps, in an average man, 12 pints of blood throughout the body to keep it alive or sustain it just as there were 2 rows of 6 loaves of shew bread or 12 loaves which the priest would eat for sustenance. Just as our heart has 4 chambers the table of shew bread had 4 corners.
3. The flickering of the main candlestick and its 6 branches (total of 7 lamps: Ex 25:32) are likened unto the pumping of blood into our aortic arch which pulsates to bring light or life to our bodies through its 7 branches the main one being the inominate artery with the others being the right and left carotid arteries, the right and left sub-clavian arteries, and the right and left coronary arteries. Just as there was never darkness in the HP (candlestick flickering during the evening and night, sun light flickering in through the veil during the day), there is always light or life in our bodies until our souls leave them.
4. Veil in the doorway between the HP and the CRA: likened unto our diaphragm with an opening which separates the chest and abdomen which opening “breathes” or moves back and forth with the wind.

* Court Round About (CRA) – Abdominal Cavity of Body
1.
The altar of sin sacrifice sides (Ex.27:1-4) equate to the ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid colons that have 4 arterial points of blood with the small intestines forming the grid in between, all of which organs burn up (consume/absorb) the sacrifices (food) we eat daily to keep us alive just as the altar, on which the horns have 4 points of blood (Ex.29:12), received sacrifices for sins committed by Israelites who wanted their physical lives to be spared. Also, the altar has a bottom drawer where ashes are gathered and then removed by a bottom opening and taken out through the gate of the Tabernacle just as we have a waste removal gate in our bodies called the rectum.
2. The brazen laver is where the priests washed the blood and dirt off the sacrifice (Ex.30:18) just as our kidneys, that form a bowl shape if pushed together, wash our blood. The kidneys are 5 centimeters apart because the Israelites walked 5 abreast through the tunneled up Red Sea which followed the Tabernacle Pattern doorway to the Holy Place which has 5 pillars (Ex 13:18 KJ, went through “harnessed” with original Hebrew being chameah, #2568 in Strong’s, which means “5″). The Red Sea itself is also likened to a brazen laver which stands before the door from the CRA into the HP because the sea was the doorway to exit Egypt (CRA of the migration of Israel by the Tabernacle pattern). Also, the laver has a spigot to let out the dirty water just as we have a urinary system and spigot to let out our dirty water.
3. The cup of holy anointing oil (Ex.30:25,30 – a symbol of the Holy Spirit) which allows the priest to enter the HP is likened unto a quickening and we have adrenal glands that quicken us which are located at the top of our kidneys (the door to the HP stands, in progression, just beyond the brazen laver).

Additionally, you can easily see that human beings reproduce themselves according to the Tabernacle Pattern as is appropriate because their bodies are temples:

* When the baby is conceived (to form what is called by science a zygote) it is not able to be seen and is not in shape and form (just as Yahweh is in the spiritual realm or MHP). Then when it takes shape and form it still cannot be seen in the physical realm except for an ultrasound which is likened unto a vision only given to some (like Elohim or the HP – an in between state). Then when the baby is born it is fully visible in the physical realm (like Yashua the Messiah when He walked the earth and the very physical CRA).
* There are steps in the Tabernacle and step 4 is at the door between the CRA and the HP and is why there was 40 (zeros are place setters only with the 4 being the number of value) years that Israel spent in the Wilderness, 40 days Yahshua spent in the Wilderness, and 40 weeks (9 months) is the gestation period for an infant.
* When a baby is born into the physical realm of which the CRA is a type, there is a show of blood (signaling and during the birth), water (bag of waters breaks), and spirit (first breath) just as there is in the CRA (blood, water, and spirit – I John 5:7-8).

There are many, many other comparisons between the Tabernacle pattern and the human body including the systems in the body, other organs, and structures within organs too numerous to mention here. Such as: the “arbor vitae” in the brain which literally means “tree of life” which is in the garden of Eden as a type of Yahweh Elohim or Yahshua Who manifested in the MHP during the Day of Atonement and later manifested in the flesh and is still manifesting in the flesh of Holy Spirit filled people (in their hearts and minds – or soul). This knowledge about our bodies conforming to the Tabernacle Pattern gives more meaning to, “What! Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit…” (I Cor 6:19).”

Metallic Messiah

King Solomon’s Astonishing Temple Secrets and His Metallic Messiah – Tony Badillo

http://www.templesecrets.info/

Tony Badillo has done interesting research showing that the dimensions of Solomon’s Temple correspond perfectly to the human body.  This Temple floor plan in the figure of a man also is seen in Genesis 28 and the account of Jacob’s dream of the ladder between heaven and earth.

Badillo shows that the Temple consisted of 3 metals, gold silver and bronze.  In Daniel 2 & 3 we are shown images of men made of metals.  Here we see the counterfeit concept revealed yet again.

The Temple, which is a symbol of man, consisted of only 3 metals.  Gold, silver and bronze.  Nebuchadnezzar’s image adds the feet of iron mixed with miry clay.  This is an allusion to the fourth kingdom of Daniel 2 not being human.  It is a mixture of fallen angels and man, ie beasts.  In Daniel 3 we see Nebuchandezzar making an image in honor of himself which is a prototype of the image spoken of in Revelation 13.

Nebuchadnezzar’s image

Dan 3:1  Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold whose height was sixty cubits; its breadth, 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 the satraps, the prefects, the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges and the justices. And all the officials of the provinces were ordered to come to the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
Dan 3:3  Then were gathered the satraps, the prefects, the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the justices, and all the officials of the provinces, to the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. And they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

This image is strongly connected to the number 666.  Its height was 60 cubits, its breadth 6 cubits and the number of instruments played were 6.

Dan 3:4  Then the herald cried with strength: To you it is commanded O peoples, nations, and languages,
Dan 3:5  at the time you hear the sound of the horn (1), the pipe (2), zither (3), the lyre (4), harp (5), bagpipe (6), and all kinds of music, you shall fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king has set up.
Dan 3:6  And whoever does not fall down and worship, at that moment they will be thrown into the middle of a burning, fiery furnace.

36 square cubits

http://www.freewebs.com/watchman4wales/666parti.htm

“The total height being ten times that of the width, for the proportions of the sculpted figure to be correct it would have stood on a tall pedestal, much as in Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square; the appearance would have been something like the attempted reconstruction in the illustration above. The fact that Daniel only gives the width and not the depth is simply because it is not necessary to state the obvious: the base-plan is a square, 6 cubits x 6 cubits giving an area of 36 square cubits.

Basically, if you draw a 6 x 6 grid and enter the individual numbers 1 – 36, then it is a simple and irrefutable mathematical fact that if you add all the numbers together they make a grand total of 666!”

As seen in part 2click here, this refers back to the magic square of the sun.

Interestingly, Manly P. Hall links the image of Nebuchadnezzar to the Sephirot and Adam Kadmon.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 388
“The Sephirothic Tree is sometimes depicted as a human body, thus more definitely establishing the true identity of the first, or Heavenly, Man–Adam Kadmon–the Idea of the Universe. The ten divine globes
(Sephiroth) are then considered as analogous to the ten sacred members and organs of the Protogonos, according to the following arrangement. Kether is the crown of the Prototypic Head and perhaps refers to the pineal gland; Chochmah and Binah are the right and left hemispheres respectively of the Great Brain; Chesed and Geburah (Pechad) are the right and left arms respectively, signifying the active creative members of the Grand Man; Tiphereth is the heart, or, according to some, the entire viscera; Netsah and Hod are the right and left legs respectively, or the supports of the world; Jesod is the generative system, or the foundation of form; and Malchuth represents the two feet, or the base of being. Occasionally Jesod is considered as the male and Malchuth as the female generative power. The Grand Man thus conceived is the gigantic image of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, with head of gold, arms and chest of silver, body of brass, legs of iron, and feet of clay.”

Counterfeit Temple of man

As stated repeatedly in this series of studies, the adversary is a counterfeiter.  It is no surprise then that the temples of the mystery religions follow the same theme as the Tabernacle and Temple of YHWH.  They were designed to be shadows of the beast and of man, albeit corrupted man.

Manly P. Hall writes that not only the Temples, but all aspects of the Mysteries was based upon the human body.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 222

“THE oldest, the most profound, the most universal of all symbols is the human body. The Greeks, Persians, Egyptians, and Hindus considered a philosophical analysis of man’s triune nature to be an indispensable part of ethical and religious training. The Mysteries of every nation taught that the laws, elements, and powers of the universe were epitomized in the human constitution; that everything which existed outside of man had its analogue within man.”

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 222-223
“As the natural outgrowth of this practice there was fabricated a secret theological system in which God was considered as the Grand Man and, conversely, man as the little god. Continuing this analogy, the universe was regarded as a man and, conversely, man as a miniature universe. The greater universe was termed the Macrocosm–the Great World or Body–and
the Divine Life or spiritual entity controlling its functions was called the Macroprosophus. Man’s body, or the individual human universe, was termed the Microcosm, and the Divine Life or spiritual entity controlling its functions was called the Microprosophus. The pagan Mysteries were primarily concerned with instructing neophytes in the true relationship existing between the Macrocosm and the Microcosm– in other words, between God and man. Accordingly, the key to these analogies between the organs and functions of the Microcosmic man and those of the  Macrocosmic Man constituted the most prized possession of the early initiates.

In Isis Unveiled, H. P. Blavatsky summarizes the pagan concept of man as follows: “Man is a little world–a microcosm inside the great universe.”

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 224

“Long before the introduction of idolatry into religion, the early priests caused the statue of a man to be placed in the sanctuary of the temple. This human figure symbolized the Divine Power in all its intricate manifestations. Thus the priests of antiquity accepted man as their textbook, and through the study of him learned to understand the greater and more abstruse mysteries of the celestial scheme of which they were a part. It is not improbable that this mysterious figure standing over the primitive altars was made in the nature of a manikin and, like certain emblematic hands in the Mystery schools, was covered with either carved or painted hieroglyphs. The statue may have opened, thus showing the relative positions of the organs, bones, muscles, nerves, and other parts. After ages of research, the manikin became a mass of intricate hieroglyphs and symbolic figures. Every part had its secret meaning. The measurements
formed a basic standard by means of which it was possible to measure all parts of cosmos. It was a glorious composite emblem of all the knowledge possessed by the sages and hierophants. Then came the age of idolatry. The Mysteries decayed from within. The secrets were lost and none knew
the identity of the mysterious man who stood over the altar. It was remembered only that the figure was a sacred and glorious symbol of the Universal Power, and it: finally came to be looked upon as a god– the One in whose image man was made.”

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 224-225

“In nearly all the sacred books of the world can be traced an anatomical analogy. This is most evident in their creation myths. Anyone familiar with embryology and obstetrics will have no difficulty in recognizing the basis of the allegory concerning Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden, the nine
degrees of the Eleusinian Mysteries, and the Brahmanic legend of Vishnu’s incarnations. The story of the Universal Egg, the Scandinavian myth of Ginnungagap (the dark cleft in space in which the seed of the world is sown), and the use of the fish as the emblem of the paternal generative power–all show the true origin of theological speculation. The philosophers of antiquity realized that man himself was the key to the riddle of life, for he was the living image of the Divine Plan, and in future ages humanity also will
come to realize more fully the solemn import of those ancient words: “The proper study of mankind is man.”

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 228

“The various pantheons of ancient religions therefore actually represent the catalogued and personified attributes of Deity. In this respect they correspond to the hierarchies of the Hebrew Qabbalists. All the gods and goddesses of antiquity consequently have their analogies in the human body, as have also the elements, planets, and constellations which were assigned as proper vehicles for these celestials. Four body centers are assigned to the elements, the seven vital organs to the planets, the twelve principal parts and members to the zodiac, the invisible parts of man’s divine nature to various supermundane deities, while the hidden God was declared to manifest through the marrow in the bones.”

http://ourinformedreality.com/fractalgeometry

“The so called Temple at Luxor is better understood today as the Temple of Man. The temple was built over a period of five centuries in ancient times according to the laws of growth found in fractal geometry. Every inch of this temple is a reflection of fractal geometry as it represents an advanced understanding of the human body and growth. R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, a highly educated scientist and expert of hermetic tradition, carried out an intensive 15 year study (1936-1951) of the temple. From his research he published an amazing book rightly named The Temple In Man and later the larger volumes, The Temple Of Man. Through his exploration of the temple, Schwaller de Lubicz discovered (and is continuously proven correct) that the Temple of Man reflects an intimate connection with the human body and the human growth process. His work got the attention of Egyptologist John Anthony West and a few highly recommended documentarys and book were produced on this very temple in the Magical Egypt series (view the episode here), the book Serpent In The Sky (an easier interpretation of The Temple of Man), and the equally brilliant Carmen Boulter documentary series The Pyramid Code.”

“Ancient Egyptian temples were not of the kind we are familiar with today. Now, when we enter a temple we assume that we will learn from a teacher of sorts about the soul and the reason for life. In Egypt the temple was not only the place of teaching, it was the teaching. As Schwaller says in The Temple In Man, “The Temple of Luxor is indisputably devoted to the Human Microcosm[...] the entire temple becomes a book explaining the secret functions of the organs and nerve centers” (The Temple in Man pg 24).

R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz

http://www.robertschoch.net/The%20Temple%20of%20Man.htm

“Anthropocosmos Man had configured the vital moment of Genesis in mathematical terms and was able to express this creation by way of geometry propagating into greater proportions. They had realized the square roots of 2, 3, and 5, and the perpetual golden mean ratio “phi” associated with pentagonal and hexagonal geometry expressed in the physical development of organic creatures in relationship to the growth and size of their different body parts. The Temple of Luxor is architecturally rendered to exhibit within its design the same proportions as the proportions of Man, thus also exhibiting the mathematical and geometrical structure of the Cosmos and its locale within human consciousness. Pharaonic Consciousness not only recognized Man as the center of the Universe but was also able to formally equate it as well. In The Temple of Man, Schwaller addresses the famous Mathematical Rhind Papyrus’s content and dissects it revealing their knowledge of mathematical and geometrical laws and functions.”

DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man

The Vetruvian Man"(The Man in Action)" by Leonardo Da Vinci

We can draw many lines of the rectangles into this figure.  Then, there are three distinct sets of Golden Rectangles: Each one set for the head area, the torso, and the legs.

DaVinci named his drawing after Marcus Vitruvius Pollo, who as a 1st century Roman architect that stated ‘the height of a well-proportioned man is equal to the span of his outstretched arms, these two equal measured yield a square which encompasses the whole body, while the hands and feet touch a circle centered upon the navel.”

Vitruvius was a proponent of the ‘Sacred Geometry of Pythagoras’ and designed temples based upon the proportions of the human body.

Symboldictionary.net
According to Pythagorian tradition, the circle represents the spiritual realm; the square, material existence, so the human body represented the perfect marriage of matter and spirit, which was is reflected in its proportions. This perfection, wrote Vitruvius, was evidenced by the fact that the extended limbs of a perfectly proportioned human fit into both the circle and the square.

Kenneth Clark in his biography of DaVinci on pg 76 wrote:
“…for if man was the measure of all things, physically perfect man was surely the measure of all beauty, and his proportions must in some way be reducible to mathematical terms and correspond with those abstract perfections, the square, the circle, and the golden section.”

In short, Vitruvian man represents the ‘perfect man.’ The Beast.

Rev 13:18  Here is wisdom: Let the one having reason count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man and its number is six hundred and sixty six.

The Fibonacci pattern/Phi points to the mark

http://goldennumber.net/bible.htm

“This beast, regarded by some as the Anti-Christ described by John, is thus related to the number 666, one of the greatest mysteries of the Bible.

Curiously enough, if you take the sine of 666º, you get -0.80901699, which is one-half of negative phi, or perhaps what one might call the “anti-phi.”  You can also get -0.80901699 by taking the cosine of 216º, and 216 is 6 x 6 x 6.

The trigonometric relationship of sine 666º to phi is based on an isosceles triangle with a base of phi and sides of 1.  When this triangle is enclosed in a circle with a radius of 1, we see that the lower line, which has an angle of 306º on the first rotation and 666º on the second rotation, has a sine equal to one-half negative phi.

In this we see the unity of phi divided into positive and negative, analogous perhaps to light and darkness or good and evil.  Could this “sine” be a “sign” as well?

In addition, 666 degrees is 54 degrees short of the complete second circle and when dividing the 360 degrees of a circle by 54 degrees you get 6.66… The other side of a 54 degree angle in a right angle is 36 degrees and 36 divided by 54 is .666.

Phi appears throughout creation, and in every physical proportion of the human body.  In that sense it is the number of mankind, as the mysterious passage of Revelation perhaps reveals.”

http://www.biblewheel.com/gr/gr_216.asp

The Number 216 is the cube of 6 – the Number God used in the foundation of the Creation Holograph. It is the value of the Davir (Holie of Holies, called the Oracle in the verse above) which God designed as a physical cube of 20 x 20 x 20 cubits:

These identities integrate with the Holiness of the Number 6, which is the Number the Lord God Almighty used to construct the Cosmos (= 600). This is why the “Man of Sin” who sits in the Holy of Holies shewing himself to be God, is marked by the Number 666. It is his attempt to sit in God’s Holy Place.

Further linking this concept together is the fact that the Ark of the Covenant was designed according to the Fibonacci pattern.

http://goldennumber.net/bible.htm

The Ark of the Covenant is a Golden Rectangle

In Exodus 25:10, God commands Moses to build the Ark of the Covenant, in which to hold His Covenant with the Israelites, the Ten Commandments, saying,

“Have them make a chest of acacia wood- two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.”

The ratio of 2.5 to 1.5 is 1.666…, which is as close to phi (1.618 …) as you can come with such simple numbers and is certainly not visibly different to the eye.  The Ark of the Covenant is thus constructed using the Golden Section, or Divine Proportion.  This ratio is also the same as 5 to 3, numbers from the Fibonacci series.

In Exodus 27:1-2, we find that the altar God commands Moses to build is based on a variation of the same 5 by 3 theme:

“Build an altar of acacia wood, three cubits high; it is to be square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.”

Note:  A cubit is the measure of the forearm below the elbow.

The cubit is based on the Fibonacci pattern/Phi as well.

To further connect these ideas, the following is a study done from the author of the BibleWheel, Richard McGough.

http://www.biblewheel.com/GR/GR_666.asp

The essential holiness of the Number 666 can not be denied. It is designed by God. It marks the Beast because the Beast seeks to blaspheme God and sit in the Holy Place, exactly where the Holy Ark = 666 sat!

As a finally example, we have these multiple occurrences of the phrase “of/from God”:

In each case, the highlighted words are translated from the Greek phrase “para Theou.” We have the identity:

Yahshua came ‘Para Theou’
John 1.6: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
John 9.16: Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
John 9.33: If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
2 Peter 1.17: For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
2 John 3: Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

In light of these identities, we must understand that God Himself is revealing the Number 666 as His own Number which marks the true intent of the the Devil, the Pseudochrist – i.e. False Christ, the true meaning of Antichrist – who would if he could, sit upon God’s Throne in the Holy of Holies, “shewing himself that he is God.”

The Holy of Holies had no light in it at all. The Holy Ark (= 666) – where God said He would meet with Moses – sat in complete darkness. This corresponds exactly with what the Lord said of Himself through the Prophet David in Psalm 18.11:

He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

His Secret Place is related to the Temple, in specific the Holy of Holies
Eze 7:22  I also will turn My face from them, and they shall defile My hidden place. And violent ones shall enter into it and defile it.

Psa 91:1  He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide in the shade of the Almighty.

Deu 27:15  Cursed is the man who makes a carved and molten image, an abomination to YHWH, the work of a craftsman’s hands, and who sets it up in a secret place! And all the people shall answer and say, Amen!

In the ark was placed the Word, which also linked to the Fibonacci Spiral.  The Scriptures are divided into 66 books, further showing that the number 666 is a counterfeit ‘word.’

The Dionysiac Architects

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 568
“The most celebrated of the ancient fraternities of artisans was that of the Dionysiac Architects. This organization was composed exclusively of initiates of the Bacchus-Dionysos cult and was peculiarly consecrated to the science of building and the art of decoration. Acclaimed as being the custodians of a secret and sacred knowledge of architectonics, its members were entrusted with the design and erection of public buildings and monuments. The superlative excellence of their handiwork elevated the members of the guild to a position of surpassing dignity; they were regarded as the master craftsmen of the earth. Because of the first dances held in honor of Dionysos, he was considered the founder and patron of the theater, and the Dionysians specialized in the construction of buildings adapted for the presentation of dramatic performances.”

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 569
“”They made their appearance certainly not later than 1000 B.C., and appear to have enjoyed particular privileges and immunities. They also possessed secret means of recognition, and were bound together by
special ties only known to themselves. The richer of this fraternity were bound to provide for their poorer brethren. They were divided into communities, governed by a Master and Wardens, and called γυνοικιαι (connected houses). They held a grand festival annually, and were held in high esteem. Their ceremonials were regarded as sacred. It has been claimed that Solomon, at the instance of Hiram, King of Tyre, employed them at his temple and palaces. They were also employed at the  construction of the Temple of Diana at Ephesus. They had means of intercommunication all over the then known world, and from them, doubtless, sprang the guilds of the Traveling Masons known in the Middle Ages.

The fraternity of the Dionysiac Architects spread throughout all of Asia Minor, even reaching Egypt and India. They established themselves in nearly all the countries bordering on the Mediterranean, and with the rise of the Roman Empire found their way into Central Europe and even into England. The most stately and enduring buildings in Constantinople, Rhodes, Athens, and Rome were erected by these inspired craftsmen. One of the most illustrious of their number was Vitruvius, the great architect,
renowned as the author of De Architectura Libri Decem. In the various sections of his book Vitruvius gives several hints as to the philosophy underlying the Dionysiac concept of the principle of symmetry applied to the science of architecture, as derived from a consideration of the proportions established by Nature between the parts and members of the human body.”

“The edifices raised by the Dionysiac Builders were indeed ‘sermons in stone.’ “

The Dionysiac architects built their edifices not only based upon the human body, but also the heavenly bodies.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 572
“In describing the societies of Ionian artificers, Joseph Da Costa declares the Dionysiac rites to have been founded upon the science of astronomy, which by the initiates of this order was correlated to the builder’s art. In various documents dealing with the origin of architecture are found hints to the effect that the great buildings erected by these initiated craftsmen were based upon geometrical patterns derived from the constellations. Thus, a temple might be planned according to the constellation of Pegasus or a court of judgment modeled after the constellation of the Scales. The Dionysians evolved a peculiar code by which they were able to communicate with one another in the dark and both the symbols and the terminology of their guild were derived, in the main, from the elements of architecture.”

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 573
“At one time the Dionysians referred to themselves as Sons of Solomon, and one of the most important of their symbols was the Seal of Solomon–two interlaced triangles.”

The ‘unfinished temple’
Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 573
“The Knights Templars–who were suspected of anything and  everything–are believed to have contacted these Dionysiac artificers and to have introduced many of their symbols and doctrines into mediæval Europe. But Freemasonry most of all owes to the Dionysiac cult the great mass of its symbols and rituals which are related to the science of architecture. From these ancient and illustrious artisans it also received the legacy of the unfinished Temple of Civilization-that vast, invisible structure upon which these initiated builders have labored continuously since the inception of their fraternity. This mighty edifice, which has fallen and been rebuilt time after time but whose foundations remain unmoved, is the true Everlasting House of which the temple on the brow of Mount Moriah was but an impermanent symbol.”

Heb 3:2  Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
Heb 3:3  For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
Heb 3:4  For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.
Heb 3:5  And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
Heb 3:6  But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
1Pe 2:4  To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
1Pe 2:5  Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Eph 2:11  Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
Eph 2:12  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Eph 2:13  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14  For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Eph 2:15  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Eph 2:16  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Eph 2:17  And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
Eph 2:18  For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
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.

A House For His Name
1Ki 8:16  Since the day that I brought forth my people Israel out of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel to build an house, that my name might be therein; but I chose David to be over my people Israel.
1Ki 8:17  And it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.
1Ki 8:18  And the LORD said unto David my father, Whereas it was in thine heart to build an house unto my name, thou didst well that it was in thine heart.
1Ki 8:19  Nevertheless thou shalt not build the house; but thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house unto my name.
1Ki 8:20  And the LORD hath performed his word that he spake, and I am risen up in the room of David my father, and sit on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

His people are called by His name
Jer 14:7  O YHWH, though our iniquities testify against us, act for Your name’s sake; for our apostasies are many; we have sinned against You.
Jer 14:8  O Hope of Israel, its Savior in time of trouble, why should You be as a stranger in the land, and as a traveler who turns aside to lodge?
Jer 14:9  Why should You be as one who is stunned, as one mighty yet cannot save? Yet You, O YHWH, are in our midst, and Your name is called on us. Do not leave us.
Isa 63:18  For a little while Your holy people possessed it. Our enemies have trampled Your sanctuary.
Isa 63:19  We are of old; You never ruled over them. Your name was never called on them.
Dan 9:18  O my God, bow down Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our ruins and the city which is called by Your name. For we do not make our prayers fall before You on account of our righteousnesses, but because of Your great mercies.
Dan 9:19  O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, attend to us and work! Do not delay, for Your own sake, O my God. For Your name is called on Your city and on Your people.

His Name is His Word

Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

The Tree of Life – The Word

The Hebrew word for tree is:

The elders/mature are likened to trees.

Who is our Counselor?

Isa 9:6  For a Child is born; to us a Son is given; and the government is on His shoulder; and His name is called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

The same word for counselor is the same word for spine

The English word spine comes from the Latin word Spica


Spica points directly to the Messiah as seen in the constellation of Virgo.  In the hand of the Virgin is a sheaf of wheat with 5 stars. A virgin (Is. 7:14) holding a branch (Jer. 23:5-6) and an ear of corn. Corn = seed (Latin Spica, the modern name of this bright star. Old name was Arabic Al Zimach seed). Star Zavijaveh means “gloriously beautiful” (Is. 4:2).  Zimach in Arabic refers back to the Hebrew ‘tsemach’, seen above, which is used 5 times in reference to the Messiah.

The 33 bones in the human spine correspond to the 33 years of the life of Messiah.  The link between the back and Messiah is further seen in Exodus 33 where Moshe is shown the glory of YHWH, specifically mentioning His back.

Exo 33:22  And as My glory is passing it will be that I will put you in a cleft of the rock; and I will cover My hand over you during My passing.
Exo 33:23  And I will remove My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face cannot be seen.

Trees – Books

The English word book comes from the Old English ‘boc’ which derives from the Germanic root ‘bok’ which is a cognate of beech. Beech was a common writing material in Germanic societies before the development of paper.

A single sheet within a book is called a leaf.  Each side of the leaf is called a page.

A folio has similar meaning

Papyrus, a thick paper-like  material made by weaving the stems of the papyrus plant, then pounding the woven sheet with a hammer-like tool.

As seen above, Exodus 2:2 speaks of the papyrus basket/ark that Moshe was placed in at the Nile…

Parchment, papyrus connection -  hammering out…

Interestingly, the word for parchment is used in the New Testament (2 Timothy 4:13) as a translation of the Greek word membrane.

Whitaker’s Latin Dictionary

Membrana, Membranae
N – 1 1 – F -

membrane; skin; parchment;

Thin skin, film membrane.  The skin of a snake or the skin prepared to write on a parchment like a scroll.

As seen in previous studiesclick hereclick here , the heavens were hammered out and likened to a scroll.  Recent scientific theories liken the universe to a membrane as well.  It is believed that our bodies are being held together by a membrane known as laminin as well.

Papyrus sheets were glued together to form a scroll. Tree bark such as lime (Latin liber).

Lime is an altered form of Middle English lind, in the 16th century also line, from Old English feminine lind or linde, Proto-Germanic *lendā, cognate to Latin lentus “flexible” and Sanskrit latā “liana”. Within Germanic languages, English lithe, German lind “lenient, yielding” are from the same root.

Linden was originally the adjective, “made from lime-wood” (equivalent to “wooden”), from the late 16th century “linden” was also used as a noun, probably influenced by translations of German romance, as an adoption of Linden, the plural of German Linde.[1] Neither the name nor the tree is related to the citrus fruit called “lime” (Citrus aurantifolia, family Rutaceae).

The Linden tree in Scripture.  The following passage of Scripture is speaking of the remnant of Yisrael, the olive tree who are in the image and likeness of Messiah.

King James Version

Isa 6:13  But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree(elah), and as an oak (allon), whose substance (matstsebeth) is in them, when they cast (shalakh – from shel mentioned above) their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance (matstsebeth – pillar,rootBethel)thereof.

Literal Version

Isa 6:13  But yet a tenth shall be in it, and it shall return and be consumed like the terebinth and like the oak that in being felled yet has its stump (the holy seed is its stump).

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

teil tree: The teil-tree is the linden or lime-tree, a species very common in Palestine; the leaf of which resembles that of the laurel, and its flower that of the olive. But the original ailah which our translators render the oak (but here distinguished from allon the oak)

The word for teil tree/linden tree in Hebrew is ‘elah’ which comes from the root ‘el’ which is commonly translated as God.

The Scrolls were held together by lime/linden trees.  This is seen in creation as well.  It is Messiah who is holding all things together (Colossians 1:17).  The Greek word used in Colossians 1:17 is sunistemi which translates back to the Hebrew word tseba.  Tseba comes from the same root as matstsebah mentioned above, the House of El.

Col 1:17  And He is before all things, and all things have subsisted (G4921 συνέστηκε) in Him.

His Word is holding all things together.  Interestingly, one of the Hebrew words for ‘word’ is amar.  What is the meaning of amar?  Thoughts that are bound together.  Amar comes from the following root word:

Liber
In Latin Liber means a book, bark of a tree, treatise, letter
from Latin, in original sense: tree bark]

Liber is also a rare name for phloem

Phloem
A tissue in vascular plants that conducts food from the leaves and other photosynthetic tissues to other plant parts.

In vascular plants, phloem is the living tissue that carries organic nutrients (known as photosynthate), particularly sucrose, a sugar, to all parts of the plant where needed. In trees, the phloem is the innermost layer of the bark, hence the name, derived from the Greek word φλόος (phloos) “bark”. The phloem is concerned mainly with the transport of soluble organic material made during photosynthesis. This is called translocation.

Interestingly, when looking at the cross section of a tree from the the tilia genus (such as the linden tree mentioned above), it is seen that it is divided into 7 sections…just like the Menorah

Interestingly, flax has this same division.

The word in Hebrew for flax links to the menorah as well.  Flax was made into linen which then became wicks for lamps (menorot).  Connecting flax to the current topic further, the root word for linden comes from ‘li’ which in the Indo-European language means flax.  This would make *len (linden) an extension of the flax root meaning ‘flexible as threads made of flax,’ then of rope or cord made of other materials, like the inner bark of the linden.

the Menorah = the Word = the Tree of Life = the Olive Tree = the Body of Messiah…

Click picture for more details on how the Scriptures are in the form of a Menorah…

It is interesting to note as well, that the natural ecology of forests is divided into 7 sections.

1. The canopy
2. Low tree layer (dwarf fruit trees)
3. Shrubs
4. Herbaceous
5. Rhizosphere (root crops)
6. Soil surface (cover crops)
7. Vertical layer (climbers, vines)

The more diverse and complex an ecosystem is, the more stable it is.

Rom 12:4  For even as we have many members in one body, but all members do not have the same function,
Rom 12:5  so we the many are one body in Christ, and each one members of one another,

Back to the word Liber…

Interestingly, If one looks at Latin versions of the TaNaKH, one will see that the 5 books of the Torah are headed with only their names.  Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numeri, Deuteronicum.
The books that follow always have the prefix of Liber, Liber Jehoshua, Liber Judicum etc.

The Torah is the root and the other books are the branches that carry the ‘food’.  Messiah is the vine/root, His body are the branches…  Food in Hebrew is lechem (bread).

Bread in Greek is artos which is used to translate numerous words in Hebrew.  Lechem, dagan (grain/fish ie believers), challah (from root chol…sand ie believers), and also ‘pat’.

Isa 8:18  Behold, I and the children(Messiah & His Body) whom YHWH has given to me are for signs and wonders (mophat) in Israel from YHWH of Hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion.

Amazingly, the Latin word liber also means children…

liber
N      2 3 M P

children (pl.); (sg. VOC) child.

Going back to the link between Liber & bread, the Scriptures liken the Word/Torah to bread (Deuteronomy 8:2-3; Matthew 4:2-4; John 6:30-63).    Messiah equates the manna/bread from heaven with Himself in John 6.  Manna is also referred to as dew in the TaNaKH (Exodus 16:13-14; Numbers 11:9, Torah is likened to dew (Deuteronomy 32:2), YHWH is likened to dew (Hosea 14:5).

Deu 8:3  And He has humbled you, and caused you to hunger, and caused you to eat the manna, which you had not known, and your fathers had not known, in order to cause you to know that man shall not live by bread alone, but man shall live by every Word that proceeds* from the mouth of YHWH.

The word for proceed in Hebrew is ‘motsa’ which means to spring forth or bud.

This word is related to the Hebrew word for Apostle (sholiach) which comes from the word ‘shalach’ which means to send forth, as the shoots of a plant.  The Hebrew word for table also comes from this root.  On the table of shewbread/bread of presence in the Tabernacle/Temple there were 12 loaves of bread representing the 12 tribes. It is the job of His branches, His apostles to take the bread of life to the world.  This bread of life is His Word, the Messiah, His presence.

The word Bible comes from papyrus…

The Greek word for papyrus as writing material (biblion) and book (biblos) come from the Phoenician port town Byblos, through which papyrus was exported to Greece.

From Greek we also derive the word tome (Greek: τόμος), which originally meant a slice or piece and from there began to denote “a roll of papyrus”. Tomus was used by the Latins with exactly the same meaning as volumen which means a roll/scroll.

The volume of the Scroll is written about Messiah

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

Part of Speech: noun feminine
A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from G2776

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).

The word for ink in 2 Corinthians 3 is from the Greek word melan

G3188
μέλαν
melan
Thayer Definition:
1) ink
Part of Speech: noun neuter
A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from G3189 as noun

This is the root word for ‘melanin’, that which is found in the skin which brings forth the various colors.  To further link to the current study, the word melas (G3189) comes from the Proto-Indo-European root ‘mel’ which means dirty/soiled.

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)

Bet & 666

The Pythagorean Triangle pg 22
“The Rabbi Mannasseh, Ben Israel, in his explanation of the cabala, says, ‘The fourth rule is founded on the shape of the letters.  If it be asked, Why does the law begin with a ב?  The answer is, Because it is formed by three lines, or ו‘s, which, being written at length, spell ואו, numerically thirteen; this number being multiplied by three (the three lines), makes thirty-nine, equal to יהוה אחד (the Lord is One), also thirty-nine.”

Bet is formed by 3 vav’s, vav = 6.  Hence, the letter Bet is linked to 666.  The letter Bet represents the house/temple.  This points to the human body.  The mark of the beast is all about defiling the human body.  A false resurrection.  Partaking of the tree of knowledge.  More on this, Yah willing, on the study DNA & the Mark of the Beast.

The letter Bet also points to creation as it is the first letter of the Torah.  Creation is linked to the number 6 as the heavens and earth were created in 6 days.  Yah willing, this will be discussed in more detail in a future study.

The Fibonacci spiral & 666

http://goldennumber.net/classic/bible.htm

Revelation 13:18 says the following:

“This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is a man’s number. His number is 666.”
This beast, regarded by some as the Anti-Christ described by John, is thus related to the number 666, one of the greatest mysteries of the Bible.

Curiously enough, if you take the sine of 666º, you get -0.80901699, which is one-half of negative phi, or perhaps what one might call the “anti-phi.”

The trigonometric relationship of sin 666º to phi is based on an isosceles triangle with a base of phi and sides of 1.  When this triangle is enclosed in a circle with a radius of 1, we see that the lower line, which has an angle of 306º on the first rotation and 666º on the second rotation, has a sine equal to one-half negative phi.

In this we see the unity of phi divided into positive and negative, analogous perhaps to light and darkness or good and evil.  Could this “sine” be a “sign” as well?

In addition, 666 degrees is 54 degrees short of the complete second circle and when dividing the 360 degrees of a circle by 54 degrees you get 6.66… The other side of a 54 degree angle in a right angle is 36 degrees and 36 divided by 54 is .666.

Phi appears throughout creation, and in every physical proportion of the human body.  In that sense it is the number of mankind, as the mysterious passage of Revelation perhaps reveals.

The relation to the Fibonacci pattern, the Temple & the human body will be discussed in more detail in a future study, Yah willing.  The Fibonacci pattern is a shadow of Messiahclick here, hence the adversary will seek to counterfeit this pattern in nature and apply it to himself.

Tree of knowledge

The Pythagorean Triangle pg 70
“The superstition, which was so common throughout all antiquity, of realising the duality by combining the worship of the serpent with that of a tree, or offering rites to the Ophite deity in a sacred grove, originated with the paradisiacal serpent and the tree of knowledge.”

The superstition mentioned above, according to the author of ‘The Pythagorean Triangle,’ is referring to the ‘dying and rising god,’ Bacchus, Osiris, Adonis etc.  Hence, the author alludes to the serpent on the tree being linked with ‘resurrection/born again experience.’  This is the duality that the author is referring to as well.  As above, so below.  The ‘god’s (immortal) mixing with mankind (mortal).

The Pythagorean Triangle pg 72
“For the same reason, Christianity has two sacraments, and a divine symbol of two united equilateral triangles, to figure the two natures of Christ.  It represents man in a twofold state, as referring to time and eternity…’not first which was spiritual, but that which was natural, and afterward that which was spiritual; the first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.’  Our first estate is Time, our second Eternity.”

The Mysteries looked upon the serpent as the savior.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 272
“The serpent was chosen as the head of the reptilian family. Serpent worship in some form has permeated nearly all parts of the earth. The serpent mounds of the American Indian; the carved-stone snakes of Central and South America; the hooded cobras of India; Python, the great snake o the Greeks; the sacred serpents of the Druids; the Midgard snake of Scandinavia; the Nagas of Burma, Siam, and Cambodia; the brazen serpent of the Jews; the mystic serpent of Orpheus; the snakes at the oracle; of Delphi twining
themselves around the tripod upon which the Pythian priestess sat, the tripod itself being in the form of twisted serpents; the sacred serpents preserved in the Egyptian temples; the Uræus coiled upon the foreheads of the Pharaohs and priests;–all these bear witness to the universal veneration in which the snake was held. In the ancient Mysteries the serpent entwining a staff was the symbol of the physician. The serpent-wound staff of Hermes remains the emblem of the medical profession. Among nearly all these ancient peoples the serpent was accepted as the symbol of wisdom or salvation. The antipathy which Christendom feels towards the snake is based upon the little-understood allegory of the Garden of Eden.
The serpent is true to the principle of wisdom, for it tempts man to the knowledge of himself. Therefore the knowledge of self resulted from man’s disobedience to the Demiurgus, Jehovah. How the serpent came to be in the garden of the Lord after God had declared that all creatures which He had made during the six days of creation were good has not been satisfactorily answered by the interpreters of Scripture. The tree that grows in the midst of the garden is the spinal fire; the knowledge of the use of that spinal
fire is the gift of the great serpent. Notwithstanding statements to the contrary, the serpent is the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds by giving creation the knowledge of itself and the realization of good and evil.”

Asherah (bethel) – Tree of knowledge

John Gill

the star of your god {hexagram/Talisman of Saturn/seal of Solomon/star of David}, 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, the wife of Chronus or Saturn, is said to take and consecrate in Tyre; this they made for themselves, and worshipped as a deity.

Astarte was the wife of Saturn.  Otherwise known as the wife of Nimrod. Please notice in the image above that the hexagram was her symbol as well.

In Assyrian asirtu, which appears also under the forms asrātu, esrēti (plural) and asru, had the further signification of “sanctuary.” Originally Asirtu, the wife of Asir, and asirtu, “sanctuary,” seem to have had no connection with one another, but the identity in the pronunciation of the two words caused them to be identified in signification, and as the tree-trunk or cone of stone which symbolized Asherah was regarded as a Beth-el or “house of the deity*,” wherein the goddess was immanent, the word Asirtu, Asherah, came to denote the symbol of the goddess. The trunk of the tree was often provided with branches, and assumed the form of the tree of life*. It was as a trunk, however, that it was forbidden to be erected by the side of “the altar of Yahweh” (Deu_16:21; see Jdg_6:25, Jdg_6:28, Jdg_6:30; 2Ki_23:6). Accordingly the symbol made for Asherah by his mother was “cut down” by Asa (1Ki_15:13). So, too, we hear of Asherim or symbols of the goddess being set up on the high places under the shade of a green tree (Jer_17:2; see 2Ki_17:10). Manasseh introduced one into the temple at Jerusalem (2Ki_21:3, 2Ki_21:7).
*This connection between the Asherah & the House of God (Bethel) and the tree of Life is important to note.  The Asherah is a counterfeit tree of life which is really the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  The tree of life represents the Messiah who is pictured by the menorah.  The tree of knowledge represents the adversary who is pictured by the Christmas tree/Asherah pole.

Exo 23:24  You shall not bow down to their gods, and you shall not serve them. And you shall not do according to their works. But tearing you shall tear them down, and smashing you shall smash their pillars (matstsebah).

Here we see that the pillar that Jacob anointed is to be the house of Elohim.  His house are His people (Hebrews 3:6).  His body.  Pictured by the menorah, the tree of Life.  The counterfeit is a pillar/Asherah which is called Bethel.  The antichrist’s house are his people.  His body.  Pictured by the Asherah, the tree of knowledge.

Our “star,” Greek ” aster,” Latin stella, is akin*. Her worship was most licentious and abominable; closely connected with that of (See ASHERAH, “THE GROVE”. Ashtoreh is the goddess, asherah “the grove,” the image or the symbol of the goddess, of wood;* asher, yashar, “to be straight,” a straight stem of a tree living, or fixed upright (1Ki_18:19; 2Ki_21:7; 2Ki_23:6; 2Ki_23:13-14; 2Ki_23:15; Jdg_6:25; Jdg_6:30). The “bringing out the asherah from the house of the Lord,” and the “cutting down,” suit such a symbol, not a grace in our sense. The active and passive powers of nature, generative and receptive, suggested the male and female deities, Baal and Ashtoreh. {This is seen further in the principle ‘as above, so below’ which will be discussed in connection to the mark of the beast in a future study, Yah willing}

Again, another connection to the star (hexagram/pentagram) and the Asherah.

Exo 34:11  Take heed for yourself what I am commanding you today. Behold, I am about to drive out from before your face the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
Exo 34:12  Take heed to yourself, that you not cut a covenant with the people of the land to which you are going in, that it not be a snare in your midst.

Deu 7:6  For you are a holy people to YHWH your God. YHWH your God has chosen you to be His own treasure out of all the people on the face of the earth.

John Gill commentary on Deu. 7:5

Deu 7:5  But thus shall ye deal with them,…. The inhabitants of the land of Canaan:

ye shall destroy their altars; on which they sacrificed to their idols:

and break down their images; of their gods, and the statues and pillars erected to the honour of them:

and cut down their groves; sacred to idols, which were usually planted on hills, and about Heathen temples, and under which idols were placed to be worshipped. The Targum of Jonathan calls them trees of their adoration, under which they worshipped; though there was a worship paid to them, not indeed directly to them, or for their sakes, but for the sake of the idols they were sacred to, or were placed under them; so Maimonides (e) says, a tree which at first was planted to be worshipped is forbidden of any use (or profit); and this is the אשרה, or “grove”, spoken of in the law, a tree planted and lopped, of which a graven image is made for an idol; and so the tree that has been worshipped, though the body of it is, not forbidden, all the shoots and leaves, and the branches, and the fruits it produces all the time it is worshipped, are forbidden to be used: though the word here used sometimes seems to signify, not a grove of trees, but some image itself, since we read of it in the temple, 2Ki_21:7,

and burn their graven images with fire; distinguished from their molten images, which may be meant in a preceding clause, and which are particularly mentioned as to be destroyed as well as these, Num_33:52.

(e) Hilchot Obede Cochabim, c. 8. sect. 3, 4. Vid. Misn. Avodah Zarah, c. 3. sect. 7.

Deu 12:3  And you shall break down their altars, and shatter their standing pillars. And you shall burn their Asherahs with fire. And you shall cut down the carved images of their gods, and shall destroy their names out of that place.
Deu 12:4  You shall not do so to YHWH your God.

Kundalini connection

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.

‘Jacob’s Ladder’

A Masonic tracing board, with three columns (Ionic, Doric, and Corinthian) representing the three sacred trees of the ancient Arya. Notice the design of the pilasters on top of each column. The column on the left has no floral motif or scroll. This column denotes the initiated beginner whose mind is rude and spiritually unawakened. The central column’s pilaster bears a scroll, signifying the first stages of the awakening process. The column on the right bears floral motifs, denoting the “flowering” or “blossoming” of the mind. It is also taller than the other two columns. The ladder is a simulacra for the Kabalistic Tree of Life and the journey toward enlightenment.

Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital pg 101
‘Prior to its adoption by Masonry, the ladder was a standard symbol of that form of alchemy which was concerned with rising, by way of self perfection, to God.’

The ladder is linked to the square and compass of Freemasonry

A Study in American Freemasonry – Arthur Preuss pg 228-231
“The Bible, square, and compasses are significant symbols of Masonry…They are inseparably connected portions of  the true Masonic Ritual and t0 be understood must be studied together. It is not therefore, as we said, the
Bible in itself that is the object of Masonic respect, for to the Bible as Christian revelation, the square and compasses are not essential ; no Christian covers them with the square and compasses. But perhaps our author will kindly inform us of the meaning of the square and compasses so familiar in Masonic symbols, for thus only we shall be able to appreciate
the meaning of the Bible read in the light of square and compasses.

He will, with pleasure, if you have the patience to turn to the word ” Talisman ” (Encyclopedia, p. 788-789.) ” We do not need,” he says,
“a better instance of this transmutation of Gnostic talismans into Masonic
symbols, by a gradual transmission through alchemy, Rosicrucianism, and mediaeval architecture, than a plate to be found in the Azoth  Philosophorum of Basil Valentine, the Hermetic philosopher, who flourished
in the seventeenth century.”

This plate,” he continues,” which is hermetic in its design, but is full of Masonic symbolism, represents a winged globe inscribed with a triangle within a square, and on it reposes a dragon. On the latter stands a human figure of two hands and two heads, surrounded by the sun, the moon, and five stars representing the seven planets. One of the heads is that of
a male ; the other, of a female. The hand attached to the male part of the figure holds a compass ; that to the female, a square. The square and compass thus distributed seem to me to indicate that originally a
phallic meaning was attached to these symbols, as there was to the point within the circle, which in this plate also, appears in the centre of the globe.

The compass held by the male figure would represent the male generative principle, and the square held by the female, the female productive principle. The subsequent interpretation given to the combined square and
compass was the transmutation from the Hermetic talisman to the Masonic symbol.”

Where Bro. Mackey leaves off, Bro. Pike (Morals and Dogma, pp. 850, 851), in his instructions to the Brethren of the Thirty-second Degree, will continue. ” You see at the beginning of this reading”, he says,
” an old Hermetic Symbol, copied from the ‘ Materia Prima ‘ of Valentinus, printed at Frankfurt, in 1613, with a treatise entitled Azoth. Upon it
you see a Triangle upon a Square, both of these contained in a circle; and above this, standing upon a dragon, a human body, with two arms only, but two heads, one male and the other female. By the side of the male head is the Sun, and by that of the female head, the Moon, the crescent within the circle of the full moon. And the hand on the male side holds a Compass, and that on the female side, a Square.” . . .


” The Earth, therefore, the great Producer, was always represented as a female, as the Mother, Great, Bounteous, Beneficent Mother Earth.” . . .
” As the procreative and generative agents, the Heavens and the Sun have always been regarded as male; as the generators that fructify the Earth and
cause it to produce.”
” The Hermaphroditic figure,” he continues, “is the Symbol of the double nature anciently assigned to the Deity, as Generator and Producer, as Brahm and Maya among the Aryans, Osiris and Isis among the Egyptians. As the Sun was male, so the Moon was female; and Isis was both the sister and the wife of Osiris. The Compass, therefore, is the Hermetic Symbol of the Creative Deity, and the Square of the productive Earth or Universe.”
” From the Heavens,” he adds, ” come the spiritual and immortal portion of man ; from the Earth his material and mortal portion. The Hebrew Genesis says that YEHOVAH formed man of the dust of the Earth, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. Through the seven planetary spheres, represented by the Mystic Ladder of the Mithriac Initiations, and it by that which Jacob saw in his dream (not with three, but with seven steps), the Souls, emanating from the Deity, descended, to be united to their human bodies: and through those seven spheres they must re-ascend, to return to their origin and home in the bosom of the
Deity.”

Azoth was considered to be a ‘universal medicine’ or ‘universal solvent’ sought in alchemy, its symbol was the Caduceus (the rod of Hermes)click here and so the term, which being originally a term for an occult formula sought by alchemists much like the philosopher’s stone, became a poetic word for the element Mercury.

As the works of more of the alchemists have come to light, it becomes clear that the philosopher’s stone wasn’t really a stone at all—even though it is always referred to as such. Sometimes the catalyst of transmutation is described as a divine child, an angel, a dragon, an elixir, a tincture, or an as-yet unknown chemical compound.

Many alchemists began to consider that somehow the philosopher’s stone was not a thing at all, but a system of knowledge. Once the alchemist truly perceived the reality that lay behind the symbols, he would achieve an intellectual and spiritual level wherein he would become one with the power that existed within the mysterious goal for which he searched so long. Once he understood what the philosopher’ stone represented, he would have found it at last—and he would have become one with it.

Many scholars have since insisted that the true alchemists sought not to turn base metals into gold, but to transform the dense material of their physical bodies into a spiritually evolved immaterial entity. In this perspective, the philosopher’s stone becomes the Holy Spirit that mystically transmutes humans into true manifestations of God on Earth.

Initiated artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, and Nicholas Poussin incorporated Kabalistic and Hermetic leitmotifs in their canvases. In Poussin’s painting entitled Grapes from the Promised Land, we see the ladder and tree.

Gerald Massey in his book Ancient Egypt: Light of the World, speaks of the ‘mother of life’ being represented as a tree in Egyptian mythology.

The ladder, the tree of knowledge, kundalini/the serpent coiling up the tree, bethel are all related.

John Gill commentary

the tree-trunk or cone of stone which symbolized Asherah was regarded as a Beth-el or “house of the deity*,” wherein the goddess was immanent, the word Asirtu, Asherah, came to denote the symbol of the goddess. The trunk of the tree was often provided with branches, and assumed the form of the tree of life*. It was as a trunk, however, that it was forbidden to be erected by the side of “the altar of Yahweh” (Deu_16:21; see Jdg_6:25, Jdg_6:28, Jdg_6:30; 2Ki_23:6). Accordingly the symbol made for Asherah by his mother was “cut down” by Asa (1Ki_15:13). So, too, we hear of Asherim or symbols of the goddess being set up on the high places under the shade of a green tree (Jer_17:2; see 2Ki_17:10). Manasseh introduced one into the temple at Jerusalem (2Ki_21:3, 2Ki_21:7).

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.

Messiah Yahshua = the Word

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

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.
Joh 2:20  Then the Jews said, This sanctuary was forty six years being built, and do You raise it up in three days?
Joh 2:21  But He spoke about the sanctuary of His body.

The Temple/Tabernacle = the Body

Exo 25:8  And let them make a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell in their midst.
2Co 6:16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

1Co 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

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.’”

This is linked to the Sephirot of the Kabbalah.

Secret Teachings of All Ages pg 386-387

“The Sephirothic Tree consists of ten globes of luminous splendor arranged in three vertical columns and connected by 22 channels or paths. The ten globes are called the Sephiroth and to them are assigned the numbers i to 10. The three columns are called Mercy (on the right), Severity (on the left), and, between them, Mildness, as the reconciling power. The columns may also be said to represent Wisdom, Strength, and Beauty, which form the triune support of the universe, for it is written that the foundation of all
things is the Three. The 22 channels are the letters of the Hebrew alphabet and to them are assigned the major trumps of the Tarot deck of symbolic cards.
Eliphas Levi declared that by arranging the Tarot cards according to a definite order man could discover all that is knowable concerning his God, his universe, and himself. When the ten numbers which pertain to the globes (Sephiroth) are combined with the 22 letters relating to the channels, the resultant sum is 32–the number peculiar to the Qabbalistic Paths of Wisdom. These Paths, occasionally referred to as the 32 teeth in the mouth of the Vast Countenance or as the 32 nerves that branch out from the Divine Brain, are analogous to the first 32 degrees of Freemasonry, which e evate the candidate to the dignity of a Prince of the Royal Secret. Qabbalists also consider it extremely significant that in the original Hebrew
Scriptures the name of God should occur 32 times in the first chapter of Genesis. (In the English translations of the Bible the name appears 33 times.) In the mystic analysis of the human body, according to the Rabbins, 32 spinal segments lead upward to the Temple of Wisdom–the skull.

The four Qabbalistic Trees described in the preceding chapter were combined by later Jewish scholars into one all-inclusive diagram and termed by them not only the Sephirothic but also the Archetypal, or
Heavenly, Adam. According to some authorities, it is this Heavenly Adam, and not a terrestrial man, whose creation is described in the opening chapters of Genesis. Out of the substances of this divine man the universe was formed; in him it remains and will continue even after dissolution shall resolve the spheres back into their own primitive substance.”

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.

Priesthood

As seen in part 1, the priesthood is linked to the mark.  The garments of salvation (Yeshua) vs. the filthy garments of man’s righteousness which traces back to Genesis 3 and the fig leaves that Adam and Eve used to cover themselves after partaking of the tree of knowledge.

As seen above, Messiah is the Mediator that connects Heaven to earth.  The priesthood performs the same function as the priests, especially the High priest, was to be a picture of the Messiah.

1Pe 2:9  But you are “an elect race,” “a royal priesthood,” “a holy nation,” “a people for possession,” so that “you may openly speak of the virtues” of the One who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; LXX-Ex. 23:22; MT-Ex. 19:5, 6

In Hebrew the word for race is גזע, which means the stock/root of a tree.

H1503
גּזע
geza‛
BDB Definition:
1) stem, trunk, stock (of trees)

Who is the root of Yisrael?  Messiah Yahshua

Rom 11:16  For if the firstfruit (1Cor 15:52 -Messiah) be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root (Isa 6:13; Gal 3:16 – Messiah) be holy, so are the branches (Joh 15:5).

Isa 11:1  And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem (H1503 גּזע
geza‛)of Jesse, and a Branch{H5342 נצר netser*} shall grow (parah -bear fruit) out of his roots:

*Netser is the origin of the name ‘Christian’.Netsarim

The following prophecy is speaking of the Messiah and the 7 Spirits which rest upon Him (Revelation 4:5; 5:6), corresponding to the 7 Branches of the Menorah.
Isa 11:2  And the Spirit of YHWH shall rest on Him; He will have the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and power, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YHWH.
Isa 11:3  And He is made to breathe in the fear of YHWH. But He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears.

The other root spoken of in Scripture is the root of the serpent

Isa 14:29  Do not rejoice, O Philistia, all of you, for the rod of your striking is broken, because a viper comes forth from the root of a snake, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

Notice that from the root of a snake comes for the fruit of a serpent.  Above, from the root of Jesse comes forth the fruit of the Spirit.  This is the true meaning of race.  The seed of the woman or the seed of the serpent.  Ye shall know them by their fruits.

Mat 7:14  For narrow is the gate, and constricted is the way that leads away into life, and few are the ones finding it.
Mat 7:15  But beware of the
false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside they are plundering wolves.
Mat 7:16 
From their fruits you shall know them. Do they gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?
Mat 7:17  So every good tree produces good fruits, but the corrupt tree produces evil fruits.
Mat 7:18  A good tree cannot produce evil fruits, nor a corrupt tree produce good fruits.
Mat 7:19  Every tree not producing good fruit is cut down and is thrown into fire.
Mat 7:20  Then surely from their fruits you shall know them.
Mat 7:21  Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but the ones who do the will of My Father in Heaven.
Mat 7:22  Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many works of power?
Mat 7:23  And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; “depart from Me, those working lawlessness!”
Psa. 6:8

Baptism & resurrection

1Pe 3:18  Because even Christ once suffered concerning sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God; indeed being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit;
1Pe 3:19  in which also, going in to the spirits in prison, He then proclaimed
1Pe 3:20  to disobeying ones, when once the long-suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, an ark having been prepared, into which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
1Pe 3:21 
Which antitype now also saves us, baptism (not a putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God through the resurrection of Jesus Christ;

Interestingly, the word tabal (baptise/immerse) is a homophone of the Hebrew word for world (tabal).

The act of baptism is an outward showing of putting off the old body of sins, and putting on the new body of Messiah/Torah
Rom 6:3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Rom 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Gal 3:26  For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Gal 3:28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for
ye are all one in Christ Jesus. {This will be discussed in more detail in the section on race}

if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. {The seed =Messiah & His body}

The word for miqvah in the Septuagint is sunogoge

Gen 1:9  Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ θεός Συναχθήτω τὸ ὕδωρ τὸ ὑποκάτω τοῦ οὐρανοῦ εἰς συναγωγὴν μίαν, καὶ ὀφθήτω ἡ ξηρά. καὶ ἐγένετο οὕτως. καὶ συνήχθη τὸ ὕδωρ τὸ ὑποκάτω τοῦ οὐρανοῦ εἰς τὰς συναγωγὰς αὐτῶν, καὶ ὤφθη ἡ ξηρά.

1Co 3:9  For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

The collecting of the waters is a picture of the body of Messiah.  There are 7 bodies of water on the earth which correspond to the 7 branches of the Menorah, yet Genesis 1 describes the gathering of these waters into one, just as the Menorah was made of on beaten piece of gold (Exodus 25:36).

The link between water and people is further seen in the word for people in Hebrew.

In the first verse of Genesis a shadow picture of Messiah gathering His people is seen.  Waters in the Scriptures is used as a type for people (Psalm 65:7).  Here a picture of Messiah hovering/covering His people and on day 3 the dry land appears.  This is a shadow picture of the resurrection.  The number 3 and resurrection is a sign of the Messiah in Scriptures.  We are His Body and therefore will also be resurrected on the ’3rd day’ (Hosea 6:2).

The Spirit is likened to a dove at the Baptism of Messiah.  Baptism is a symbol of rebirth, hence the Spirit/Dove is linked to rebirth and resurrection.
Luk 3:21  And it happened, in the baptizing of all the people, Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened;
Luk 3:22  and the Holy Spirit came down in a bodily form as a dove upon Him. And there was a voice out of Heaven, saying, You are My Son, the Beloved; in You I have been delighting.
Psa. 2:7; Gen 22:2; Isa. 42:1

The Creation

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth;
Gen 1:2  and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,

A replay of this was seen when the virgin Mary conceived and brought forth the Messiah…the Light of the world.  The Spirit hovered over her ‘waters/womb’, the Seed (the Word) was implanted and she brought forth the Tree of Life.

Luk 1:35  And answering, the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you, and for this reason that Holy One being born of you will be called Son of God.

Psa 139:13  For You have possessed my inward parts; You wove me in the womb of my mother.
Psa 139:14  I will thank You, for with awesome ways I am distinguished; Your works are marvelous, and my soul knows it very well.
Psa 139:15  My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret; when I was woven in the depths of the earth.

Here we seen that the womb is likened to the earth.  In Hebraic thought, the womb is also likened to waters.

Water
In ancient Hebrew thought, the letter Mem symbolizes water. In fact, its name is derived from the Hebrew word for water, mayim. The connection of Mem to water is very significant given the other concepts with which the letter is interconnected.

The Number 40
Each Hebrew letter has a numerical value. The value of Mem is 40. This is significant in several ways:

1. The number 40 appears numerous times in both the Old and New Testaments connected to the concepts cleansing or refining. Two such examples are the flood of Noah and the temptation of Jesus. Furthermore, many of these accounts that mention 40 are closely associated with water. Noah’s flood was a massive cleansing by water, and Jesus’ temptation took place immediately after he was baptized in the Jordan river.

2. The Mikvah, or Hebrew ritual immersion must contain at least 40 sa’ahs of water (about 200 gallons) to be a mikvah. Thus the number 40 and the concept of water again connect the idea of cleansing intimately to the letter Mem.

A Womb and a Tomb
Mem is already associated with water and cleansing, but the depth of symbolism goes even further. In both Jewish and Christian understanding, immersion/baptism is a place of death and rebirth. Our old self dies, and our we are born again, clean and renewed. As if this simple symbolism were not enough, the letter Mem literally illustrates this concept.

There are two forms of the letter Mem, one used at the beginning or middle of words (open), and one only used to end a word (closed).

This concept of the letter Mem being a picture of the womb, reveals an important mystery of the Messiah being born from a virgin (closed womb/mem).

Isa 7:14  So, The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold! The virgin will conceive and will bring forth a son; and she shall call His name Immanuel.
Isa 9:6  For a Child is born; to us a Son is given; and the government is on His shoulder; and His name is called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isa 9:7  There is no end to the increase of His government and of peace on the throne of David, and on His kingdom, to order it, and to sustain it with justice and with righteousness, from now and forever. The zeal of YHWH of Hosts will do this.

In the Hebrew text an amazing mystery is revealed showing that the Prince of peace will come from the closed womb.  The closed mem should only occur at the end of a word, but in the text it occurs in the middle.  This is the only time in Scripture that this happens.

In Genesis 8, Noah sends forth a dove to when the waters had subsided enough for the earth to be seen.  This too, is a symbol of rebirth.  All throughout Scripture, the number 3 is associated with resurrection as can be seen in the Book of Jonah and the resurrection of Messiah for examples.  On the third day, the earth came forth out of the waters and brought forth life.

Gen 1:9  And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so.
Gen 1:10  And God called the dry land, Earth. And He called the collection of the waters, Seas. And God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so.
Gen 1:12  And the earth bore tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed according to its kind, and the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it. And God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:13  And there was evening, and there was morning the third day.

The Spirit is linked with rebirth

1Pe 3:18  Because even Christ once suffered concerning sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God; indeed being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit;
Rom 8:11  But if
the Spirit of the One having raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the One having raised the Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies live through the indwelling of His Spirit in you.

Born Again from Above click here by the Spirit/Word

Joh 3:3   “Yes, indeed,” Yeshua answered him,  “I tell you that unless a person is born again from above, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

Joh 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Tit 3:5 He saved us, not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to His compassion, through the washing of rebirth, and renewal by the Set-apart Spirit,
1Pe 1:23 
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1Jo 3:9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
Jam 1:18  Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
Jas 1:21  On account of this, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of evil, in meekness receive the implanted Word being able to save your souls.

Jonah’s name, who was ‘resurrected’ after 3 days and nights in the belly of the fish, means a dove.  Again the link between the Spirit and rebirth.

Psa 139:17  And how precious are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!

The sprouting of vegetation is a picture of birth/resurrection

Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so.

Messiah is the Resurrection & Life

Joh 11:25  Jesus said to her, I am the Resurrection and the Life. The one believing into Me, though he die, he shall live.

Messiah is the Seed

Luk 8:11  And this is the parable: The seed is the Word of God.

Gal 3:16  But the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his Seed (it does not say, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ).

Joh 12:24  Truly, truly, I say to you, If the grain of wheat that falls into the earth does not die, it remains alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.

John Gill Commentary

except a corn of wheat fall into the ground; or is sown in the earth; for sowing with the Jews is expressed by the falling of the seed into the earth; See Gill on Mat_13:4; and is a very fit phrase to set forth the death of Christ by, who fell a sacrifice to justice by the hands of men:

and die; or is corrupted, and putrefies; and which is done in three days time in moist land, but is longer in dry ground ere it perishes (z)

(z) Rabbenu Samson & Bartenora in Misn. Celaim, c. 2. sect. 3.

1Co 15:35  But someone will say, How are the dead raised? And with what body do they come?
1Co 15:36  Foolish one! What you sow is not made alive unless it dies.
1Co 15:37  And what you sow, you do not sow the body that is going to be, but a bare grain, (it may be of wheat, or of some of the rest),
1Co 15:38  and God gives it a body according as He willed, and to each of the seeds its own body.
1Co 15:39  Not every flesh is the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another of fish, and another of birds.
1Co 15:40  And there are heavenly bodies, and earthly bodies. But the glory of the heavenly is truly different, and that of the earthly different;
1Co 15:41  one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.
1Co 15:42  So also the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption.
1Co 15:43  It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.
1Co 15:44  It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body; there is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
1Co 15:45  So also it has been written, “The” first “man”, Adam, “became a living soul;” the last Adam a life-giving Spirit.
Gen. 2:7
1Co 15:46  But not the spiritual first, but the natural; afterward the spiritual.
1Co 15:47  The first man was out of earth, earthy. The second Man was the Lord out of Heaven.
Gen. 2:7
1Co 15:48  Such as is the earthy man, such also are the earthy ones. And such as is the heavenly Man, such also are the heavenly ones.
1Co 15:49  And as we bore the image of the earthy man, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.
1Co 15:50  And I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood is not able to inherit the kingdom of God, nor does corruption inherit incorruption.
1Co 15:51  Behold, I speak a mystery to you: we shall not all fall asleep, but we shall all be changed.
1Co 15:52  In a moment, in a glance of an eye, at the last trumpet; for a trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall all be changed.
1Co 15:53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1Co 15:54  But when this corruptible shall put on incorruption, and this mortal shall put on immortality, then will take place the Word that has been written, “Death was swallowed up in victory.”
Isa. 25:8
1Co 15:55  “O death, where is your sting? Hades, where is your victory?” Hos. 13:14
1Co 15:56  Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the Law;
1Co 15:57  but thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
1Co 15:58  So that, my beloved brothers, you be firm, immovable, abounding in the work of the Lord always, knowing that your labor is not without fruit in the Lord.

The Messiah is likened to a plant rising from the ground

Isa 11:1  And a Shoot goes out from the stump of Jesse, and a Branch will bear fruit out of his roots.

Isa 11:10  And it shall be in that day, the Root of Jesse stands as a banner of peoples; nations shall seek to Him; and His resting place shall be glory.

Isa 53:1  Who has believed our report? And to whom is the arm of YHWH revealed?
Isa 53:2  For He comes up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form nor magnificence that we should see Him; nor form that we should desire Him.

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

*This is capitalized in most English versions of the Scriptures because it is a direct reference to the Messiah.  The word used here is ‘Tsemach’ and is used 5 times in reference to the Messiah in Scripture.

Isa 4:2  In that day the Branch of YHWH will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth for pride and for glory for the survivors of Israel.

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.

Jer 33:15  In those days, and at that time, I will cause a Branch of Righteousness to grow up to David. And He shall do judgment and righteousness in the land.
Jer 33:16  In those days Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell in safety. And this is the name that shall be called on her: YHWH OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

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.

1st Fruit

First Fruit = Olive tree

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

The above verse is speaking of the Olive tree of Yisrael.  The Olive Tree of Yisrael is linked to the menorah (Zechariah 4:14).

7 Branches of the Menorah correspond to the 7 continents

The center of the Menorah is the Messiah (the yarekh/body). The center of the earth is the land of Israel (Ezekiel 8:12), whose center is Jerusalem which is further divided into 7 mountains (1 Enoch 17:6-8; 24:1).  The center of Jerusalem is the Temple which contains the 7 branched menorah, the Holy of Holies is the center of the Temple and the Ark is placed in the center of the Holy of Holies which contains the 7 pillars of Wisdom (Proverbs 9:1) (Midrash Tanhuma).

The Fruit of the Olive Tree

Jer 11:16  YHWH called your name, a green olive tree, fair, with fine*** fruit. With the sound of a great roaring, He has set fire to it, and its branches are worthless.
***H8389 תּאר tô’ar
BDB Definition:
1) shape, form, outline, figure, appearance
This word, ‘toar’,  is the root of the word Torah

From this root we get ta’ar and to’ar.  These words mean form, outline or border.  This is an important connection to see in that the mark of the beast versus the mark of YHWH ultimately reflects whose image/form you are in.

This connection between the mark and the image/form/outline/shadow picture of YHWH Yahshua versus the antichrist is further seen in that the word Torah comes from this same root.

We can have the mark of YHWH and be in His image by walking in His Torah, or we can have the mark of the beast and be in the image of satan by walking in his torah which is lawlessness.

Connection to the resurrection

Rom 1:1  Paul, a slave of Jesus Christ, a called apostle, separated to the gospel of God,
Rom 1:2  which He promised before through His prophets in the holy Scriptures,
Rom 1:3  concerning His Son who came of the seed of David according to flesh,
Rom 1:4  who was
marked out the Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord;

A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from G3725

The meaning of this word corresponds to the Hebrew word Tor.  It is only through the resurrection that we will be formed into His image.

1Jn 3:1  See what manner of love the Father has given us, that we may be called children of God. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
1Jn 3:2  Beloved, now we are the children of God, and it was not yet revealed what we shall be. But we know that if He is revealed, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.

So what is the counterfeit?  It is a false ‘resurrection’ or born again experience.  It is partaking of the tree of knowledge.  Those who put their faith in Messiah must die to the flesh to be reborn again in the Spirit through His power.  Those who partake of the tree of knowledge must go through degrees and graduations to reach ‘godhood’.  This false born again/resurrection concept is seen throughout the world and the various belief systems of mankind.  The Buddhists and Hindus have the reincarnation concept.  The Jews have the concept of ‘climbing the sephirotic ladder’ and reaching the status of Adam Kadmon (image of Elohim).  The esoteric teachings have initiation experiences.  Catholicism has sacraments.  They are all the filthy garments of man’s attempts at righteousness.  It is only YHWH’s righteousness, the garments of salvation that will save us.  We must be in the image of Messiah not the image of the beast.  We must partake of the tree of life, not the tree of knowledge.

In Revelation 7, the word for sealed translates back to the Hebrew word ‘tamim’ which means perfect/complete.  Those who are numbered by YHWH will be sealed with His name and be in the image of Messiah Yahshua.  Those who are marked by the adversary will be numbered and given the name of the antichrist and be in his image.

Gimmel

The connection between the number 3 and completion is further seen in the Hebrew letter gimel (ג).

The Hebrew letter gimel originally was pronounced as gam.

Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible pg 22

This links back to baptism, as seen above, as the meaning of collecting at the waters.

To further illustrate this, the word ‘agam’, which comes from the root ‘gam’ is translated as pool in English, just as miqveh is

Amazingly, the account of Moshe being drawn out of the waters after being hidden for 3 months is linked to this word.

Exo 2:3  And she was not able to hide him any longer, and she took a basket for him made of papyrus (Hebrew ‘gome’ גמא), and she daubed it with bitumen and with pitch. And she put the child in it, and placed it in the reeds by the lip of the Nile.

The Hebrew letter gimmel/gam is a pictograph of a foot but also represents a camel.

The Holy Scriptures link the camel to the gathering of the waters:

Gen 24:11  And he made the camels kneel* outside the city, by a well of water at the time of the evening, the time that women go out to draw.

*In Hebrew this word is barakh which connects with the word gamal/miqveh through the English word ‘pool.’  The word pool is translated from 3 different Hebrew words.  Agam, miqveh, and berakah.

This word comes from the root:

Notice that the parent root of this word is בר, bar.  This is the word for Son (Psalm 2:12).  It is also the root for the word for soap.

Washing of the body, as well as washing of the clothing points to Messiah.  At Mt. Sinai, Yisrael was to was their clothing and be ready for the 3rd day when they would meet YHWH.  Interestingly, the human body was designed to bathe with soap every 2-3 days.

The word above, ‘bar’, is translated as son in Psalm 2:12; Proverbs 31:2 & Daniel 3:25, and is used in reference to the Word in Psalm 19:8.  The link here is clear.  The need for the body & our clothing to bathe in water and soap is a picture of man needing to be covered in the garments of the Word/Yahshua.

Psa 24:3  Who shall go up into the hill of YHWH? And who shall rise in His holy place?
Psa 24:4  He who has
clean hands and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul to vanity and has not sworn deceit.
Psa 24:5  He shall lift up
the blessing(berakhah) from YHWH, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

What is the blessing (berakah)?

Psa 133:3  like the dew of Hermon coming down on the mountains of Zion; for there YHWH commanded the blessing: life till everlasting.

Act 3:25  You are sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God appointed our fathers, saying to Abraham, “Even in your Seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. Gen. 22:18
Act 3:26  Having raised up His child Jesus, God sent Him first to you, blessing you in turning away each one from your iniquities.

This blessing is seen in the natural realm, as described in the book of Hebrews, pointing back to the 3rd day of creation

Heb 6:7  (For the earth drinking in the rain often coming upon it, and producing vegetation suitable for those for whom it is also worked, receives blessing from God;
Heb 6:8  “but bearing thorns and thistles,” it is deemed unfit and near a curse, of which the end is for burning.)
Gen. 3:17, 18

Being clothed with His righteousness is linked with the earth springing forth plants

Isa 61:10  Rejoicing I will rejoice in YHWH. My soul shall be joyful in my God. For He clothed me with garments of salvation; He put on me the robe of righteousness, even as a bridegroom dons as a priest his head-dress, and as a bride wears her ornaments.
Isa 61:11  For as the earth comes out with her buds, and as a garden causes that which is sown to grow, so the Lord YHWH will make righteousness and praise to grow before all the nations.

Back to the letter gimmel…

The letter gimmel points to completion, just as the number 3 through does.

Psa 57:2  I will cry to God Most High, to God who works (gamar=perfects) for me.

Psa 138:8  YHWH will perfect His work in me; O YHWH, Your mercy endures forever; You will not forsake the works of Your hands.

This concept of working to perfection through YHWH’s Word/Image being formed in us is seen further in:

2Ti 3:16  All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
2Ti 3:17  so that the man of God may be perfected, being fully furnished for every good work.

The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet pg 71

“The גימל gimmel, is cognate to גמל gamol, which means to nourish until completely ripe, as in ויגמל שקדים, it produced mature almonds (Numbers 17:23).  Of Isaac, the Torah states: The child grew, ויגמל, and was weaned (Genesis 21:8); there gamol refers to the development of an infant to the point that it can live without it’s mother’s nursing.”

It is interesting to note that in the book of Maccabees the period of time that the mother nursed the child was 3 years.

2Ma 7:27  But she bowing herself toward him, laughing the cruel tyrant to scorn, spake in her country language on this manner; O my son, have pity upon me that bare thee nine months in my womb, and gave thee such three years, and nourished thee, and brought thee up unto this age, and endured the troubles of education.

This concept of maturity being linked with being weaned is further seen in the book of Hebrews

Heb 5:12  For indeed because of the time you are due to be teachers, yet you need to have someone to teach you again the rudiments of the beginning of the Words of God, and you came to be having need of milk, and not of solid food;
Heb 5:13  for everyone partaking of milk is without experience in the Word of Righteousness, for he is an infant.
Heb 5:14  But
solid food is for those full grown, having exercised the faculties through habit, for distinction of both good and bad.

Heb 6:1  Because of this, having left the discourse of the beginning of Christ, let us be borne on to full growth, not laying down again a foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Heb 6:2  of baptisms, of doctrine, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of dead ones, and of eternal judgment.
Heb 6:3  And this we will do, if indeed God permits.
Heb 6:4  For it is impossible for those once having been enlightened, and having tasted of the heavenly gift, and becoming sharers of the Holy Spirit,
Heb 6:5  and tasting the good Word of God, and the works of power of a coming age,
Heb 6:6  and having fallen away, it is impossible for them again to renew to repentance, crucifying again for themselves the Son of God, and putting Him to open shame.

Notice that Shaul links this concept of maturity with the springing forth of plants and fruit
Heb 6:7  (For
the earth drinking in the rain often coming upon it, and producing vegetation suitable for those for whom it is also worked, receives blessing from God;
Heb 6:8  “but bearing thorns and thistles,” it is deemed unfit and near a curse, of which the end is for burning.)
Gen. 3:17, 18

To further show this connection, the word for ‘complete/mature’ is

The Hebrew word for food comes from this same root:

On the 3rd day the plants, trees and fruit appeared which became food for man.

Gen 1:30  And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so.

Gen 2:9  And out of the ground YHWH God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food. The Tree of Life was also in the middle of the garden; also the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

It is interesting that when Isaac was weaned (found mature) there was then a feast (Genesis 21:8).  If Isaac was 3 years old, that would connect to the birth of the ‘manchild’ of Revelation 12 & Isaiah 66:7-8, who partakes of the Wedding Supper 3 1/2 years after.  Isaac is further linked to the manchild through Psalm 126.  When the captivity is ended, our mouths will be full of laughter (sechoq – same root as Yitschaq), Sarah’s barren womb is a picture of Zion (Isaiah 49:13-23; 54:1-3; 66:7-11).  It is believed that Isaac was born at Pesach which would link to the ‘manchild’ in Revelation 12 who flees to the wilderness for 3 1/2 years.  Subtracting 3 1/2 years from the Fall Feasts which are a picture of Messiah’s return, brings one to the time of Pesach.

The word for bride comes from the same root, כל:

It was on the 3rd day that the bride appeared before YHWH at Mt. Sinai

Exo 19:10  And YHWH said to Moses, Go to the people and sanctify them today and tomorrow. And let them wash their clothes.
Exo 19:11  And be ready* for the third day. For on the third day YHWH will go down before the eyes of all the people on the mountain of Sinai.

*The Hebrew word here is ‘kun’ which means to stand, firm.  It comes from the following root word in Hebrew:

This word points to the resurrection and links to the 3rd day of creation.  It is on the 3rd day (Hosea 6:2 that the bride is resurrected into the image of Messiah (clothes are cleansed Ephesians 5:26-28) to meet her bridegroom.  The Hebrew word for priest, kohen, comes from this root, as the priest is a support/pillar of the community.

‘Kun’ also points to the Messiah as seen in Psalm 80

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.

Exo 19:12  And you shall set limits to the people all around, saying, Be careful for yourselves, not going up into the mountain and touching its border; everyone touching the mountain dying shall die.
Exo 19:13  Not a hand shall touch him, but stoning he shall be stoned, or piercing he shall be shot through. He shall not live, whether animal or man. At the sounding of the ram’s horn*, they shall go up into the mountain.

*The word in Hebrew here is ‘yovel,’ speaking of the ‘Jubilee’ where the great shofar is sounded and the dead are raisedclick here.
Exo 19:14  And Moses went from the mountain to the people. And he sanctified the people, and they washed their clothes.
Exo 19:15  And he said to the people, Be ready for the third day. Do not approach a woman.
Exo 19:16  And on the third day, it being morning, it happened: There were thunders and lightnings, and a heavy cloud on the mountain, and the sound of a ram’s horn, very strong! And all the people in the camp trembled.
Exo 19:17  And Moses caused the people to go up from the camp to meet God. And they took their stand at the lower part of the mountain.

Going back to the concept of eating/ food and completion, it is interesting to note that the process of photosynthesis is a picture of the perfecting/maturing process.  Plants use carbon dioxide and water, mixed with the energy from light to produce food and oxygen.

Six molecules of water plus six molecules of carbon dioxide produce one molecule of sugar plus six molecules of oxygen.

Light (Word/Yahshua) is added to carbon which represents the flesh as carbon has the atomic number of 6, the number of flesh/man.  Water is added which represents the Word/Spirit.  This combination of mortal man receiving the waters of the Spirit/Word mixed with faith in Messiah Yahshua brings forth food/energy/sugar and oxygen which represents resurrection/being born again as oxygen has the atomic number of 8 which is the number of rebirth/resurrection/eternity.  Another interpretation of photosynthesis can be applied to the washing of the body/clothes as seen above.  Our bodies produce sweat which is water that is odorless.  It is the mixture of bacteria that produces the stink of body odor.  Man must wash his clothes and body with soap (bar – Son) or ‘receive the Light’.  This takes away the ‘stink’/ carbon and produces the sweet smelling odor of the saved who are in the Image of Messiah who is represented by the sweet smell of myrrh, aloes and cassia (Psalm 45:8; Song of Songs 1:3; Ephesians 5:2Smell of His Garments)

Interestingly, the organelle of the plant cell whose main function is in the photosynthesis process is the chloroplast which is divided into 12.

Hos 6:2  After two days He will bring us to life. In the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live before Him.
Hos 6:3  Then we shall know, we who follow on to know YHWH. His going forth is established as the dawn*. And He shall come to us as the rain, as the latter and former rain to the earth.

*Here is another link between the resurrection and photosynthesis.  At dawn, the sun arises and shines forth it’s light upon the plants of the field whose leaves are covered with the morning dew.  The word is likened unto dew (Deuteronomy 32:2; Proverbs 19:12; Hosea 14:5).  The sunlight reacts with the dew and carbon to produce Oxygen/life/resurrection.

Isa 26:19  Your dead ones shall live, my dead body, they shall rise up. Awake and sing, dust dwellers; for the dew of lights is your dew; and the earth shall cast out departed spirits.
Eph 5:14  Because of this, He says, Arise, sleeping ones and stand up out of the dead ones, and Christ will shine on you.

Mark 5:35-43 further expounds this link through the resurrection of the young girl by Messiah.

Mar 5:41  And taking hold of the child’s hand, He said to her, Talitha koumi; which is, being translated, Little girl, I say to you, Rise up!
Mar 5:42  And immediately the little girl rose up and walked. For she was twelve years old. And they were amazed with great amazement.
Mar 5:43  And very much He directed them that no one should know this. And He said to
give her something to eat.

The word above ‘talitha’ comes from the Hebrew root ‘tal,’ which is the same root as dew.

G5008 ταλιθά talitha tal-ee-thah’
Of Chaldee origin (
compare [H2924]); the fresh, that is, young girl; talitha (O maiden): – talitha


H2924
טלה ṭâleh taw-leh’
By variation for H2922; a lamb: – lamb.
H2922
טלא ṭelâ’ tel-aw’
Apparently from H2921 in the (original) sense of covering (for protection); a lamb (compare H2924): – lamb
H2922 only used once in the bible, speaking of the regathering

Isa 40:11  He shall feed His flock like a shepherd; He shall gather lambs with His arm; and carry them in His bosom; those with young He will lead; …..The ultimate fulfillment of this prophecy is at the resurrection of the dead when He will gather His people from the 4 corners of the earth (Matthew 24:31; Isaiah 11:12; Jeremiah 49:36).  As seen above in the section on measuring the earth, Messiah is seen in measuring the 4 corners of the earth.  Interestingly, the next verse in Isaiah 40 speaks of He who measures as He who gathers…
Isa 40:12  He who has measured in His hand the waters and the heavens by a span meted out; and enclosed in the measure the dust of the earth, and weighed
(shalish -number 3) in the balance the mountains, and the hills in the scales,

Amazingly, the concept of the 4 corners and dew is further seen in that the word for dew in Hebrew, ‘tal,’ is the same root of the word ‘Tallit.’  On the four corners of the tallit are tsitsit/tassels.

Tsitsit comes from the root:

The Torah tells us that the tzitzith are to be on the four corners:

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 22:12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four corners of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest [thyself].

What is interesting is that the Hebrew word for corners, (kanfot), is the same Hebrew word translated as wings in:

Shemot (Exodus) 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and [how] I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.

Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

Grabbing the tzitzit of Messiah’s garment completes us/perfects us.  The four corners of the earth/four corners of His garment…

The above word is spelled exactly the same as tekhelet/tzitzit with the addition of a yod.  The letter yod represents the hand, so it can be seen that the hand grabbing the tzitzit of His garment brings perfection/completion.  This connects again to the cross.  On the cross, the last words of Messiah were ‘it is finished’.  In Hebrew, the word for finished/complete is also the same as the word for bride.  Where does the bride dwell?  Under the shadow of the wings of her husband (Ruth 3:9).

Zec 8:23  So says YHWH of Hosts: In those days ten men out of all languages of the nations shall take hold, and will seize the skirt of a man, a Jew, saying, Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.

As mentioned above, the blossoming of the rod of Aharon is linked to the number 3 and resurrection.  This further links tsitsit to the resurrection.

Num 17:8  And it happened on the next day, Moses went into the tabernacle of the testimony, and, behold! The rod of Aaron for the house of Levi had budded (parach), and put forth buds (perach), and bloomed (tsuts) blossoms (tsits), and bore ripe (gamal) almonds.

The word parach above, is a picture of a chick bursting out of the egg or the flower bursting out of the bud, this is used in reference to the righteous who ‘flourish’ or parach like a palm tree in Psalm 92:12-13.

Tsitsit are twisted threads which comes from the Hebrew word ‘gadol’ which is also translated as ‘great,’ as in Deuteronomy 5:22 speaking of the great voice of YHWH that spoke during the giving of the 10 commandments.  Again the link to resurrection.

Tsitsit are further connected to the number 3 in that they also teach of completion/maturity via the beard.  In Ezekiel 8:3, YHWH takes Ezekiel by a ‘lock’ of his hair.  The word lock here is tsitsit.  The word for beard is zakan which is the same Hebrew word for elder/ancient or one who is mature.  Leviticus 19:27 further links the beard with the tsitsit in that man is commanded to to destroy the corners of his beard.

According to its Kind

Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so.

The word for ‘number/tell’ comes from this root.

Gen 13:16  And I will make your seed as the dust of the earth, so that if a man can count (manah) the dust of the earth, then your seed also will be counted (manah).

Interestingly, when Abraham was told to ‘count’ the stars in relation to his Seed, another Hebrew word was used.

Gen 15:5  And He brought him outside and said, Look now at the heavens and count the stars, if you are able to count them. And He said to him, So shall your seed be.

The word used was saphar which comes from the root סף, which means the seashore as seen above.

This links the stars in the heaven which are likened to the Messiah & His body (the seed) with the sand on the seashore which are also likened to the Seed.  Amazingly, it is estimated that the amount of stars in the heavens is equal to the number of grains of sand on the earth. (10 to the 22nd power)

Gen 22:17  that blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is on the shore of the sea. And your Seed shall possess the gate of His enemies.

The word, temunah, which means likeness/image in Hebrew comes from this same root.  Yisrael is those who are born again and will be resurrected into the Image and likeness of Messiah Yahshua.

The word for seashore is חוף

This is the root of the word ‘desire, favor, will,’ in Hebrew

Psa 1:1  Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, and has not stood in the way of sinners, and has not sat in the seat of scorners.
Psa 1:2  But his
delight(chaphetz חפץ) is only in the Law of YHWH, and he meditates in His Law day and night.
Psa 1:3  And he shall be
like a tree planted by the rivulets of waters, which will give its fruit in its seasons, and its leaf will not wither, and all which he does will prosper.

Trees bearing fruit by the edges of the water are further linked by the Hebrew word for fruit.

The Hebrew word for fruit is פרי, which pictographically means the mouth פ(words) and the hand י (actions) of the head ר.  The word for mouth in Hebrew means an edge.

Notice the two-edged sword is linked with the mouth

Heb 4:12  For the Word of God is living, and powerfully working, and sharper than every two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of both soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge of the thoughts and intentions of the heart;
Rev 19:15  And out of His mouth goes forth a sharp sword, that with it He might smite the nations. And He will shepherd them with an iron rod. And He treads the winepress of the wine of the anger and of the wrath of God Almighty.

The word for mouth is also translated as commandment.

Pro 8:29  when He gave to the sea its limit, that the waters should not pass beyond His command(peh); when He decreed the foundations of the earth,

Yisrael moved according to His commandment/mouth

Num 9:23  By the mouth (KJV commandment) of YHWH they encamped, and by the mouth of YHWH they pulled up stakes. They kept the charge of YHWH, by the mouth of YHWH, by the hand of Moses.

In Psalm 1, mentioned above, the man who meditates on the Torah day and night brings forth much fruit.  The word for meditate in Psalm 1 means to mutter, or constantly speak.

1Pe 4:11  If anyone speaks, let it be as the words of God; if anyone ministers, as by strength which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ; to whom is the glory and the might to the ages of the ages. Amen.

Eph 4:29  Let not any filthy word go out of your mouth, but if any is good to building up (leading to maturity/completion) in respect to the need, that it may give grace to the ones hearing.

James chapter 3 links this concept of speaking the words of Torah and bearing fruit with taming the tongue and then links it with the fruit from above.  That which is born from above has the seed of the Word within them.  That one should be speaking the Words of Torah, Words of light, truth & love.  In James 3 the other seed is seen.  The mixed seed.  Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.  Hence, we can bear the fruit of the tree of Life, the Messiah.  We can be numbered as the sand of Yisrael.  Or we can bear the fruit of the antichrist, the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  We can be numbered as the sand from whence the beast arises.

Col 3:17  And whatsoever ye do in word {(peh – mouth) or deed (yod – hand)…word and deed = fruit}, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks

Mat 12:33  Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree corrupt and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by the fruit.
Mat 12:34  Offspring of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

Isa 51:7  Hear Me, those knowing righteousness, the people of My Law in their heart; do not fear the reproach of man, and do not be bowed from their blasphemings.

Psa 119:172  My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

Psa 71:15  My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness and Your salvation (yeshua) all the day; for I do not know the numbers.

Psa 71:16  I will come in the strength of the Lord YHWH; I will speak of Your righteousness, of Yours alone.

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.

His body is clothed in garments of righteousness

Isa 61:10  I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation(yeshua), he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Rom 13:14  But
put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
Gal 3:27  For
as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Fruit of the Spirit

Eph 5:9  For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.

Php 1:9  And this I pray, that your love may yet abound more and more in full knowledge and all perception,
Php 1:10  for you to distinguish the things that differ, that you may be sincere and without blame for the day of Christ,
Php 1:11  being filled with
fruits of righteousness through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Isa 60:21  And your people shall all be righteous; they shall possess the earth forever, a branch of My planting, a work of My hands, to beautify Myself.

Isa 45:24  He shall say, Only in YHWH do I have righteousness (tsedeqah) and strength; to Him he comes; and they are ashamed, all who are angry with Him.
Isa 45:25  In YHWH all of the seed of Israel shall be justified (tsadaq), and shall glory. (Romans 14:11; Philippians 2:10)

Washed & Justified

1Co 6:11  And some of you were these things, but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.

In His Image

Rom 8:29  because whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, for Him to be the First-born among many brothers.
Rom 8:30  But whom He predestinated, these He also called; and
whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

Isa 61:3  to appoint to those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty {pe’er from the word par (fruit)} instead of ashes {aphar – ash from the word par (fruit)}, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of the spirit of infirmity, so that one calls them trees of righteousness, the planting of YHWH, in order to beautify (pa’ar) Himself.

Fruit, soil, ash…

Gen 18:27  And Abraham answered and said, Behold, I pray, I have undertaken to speak to the Lord, and I am dust (עפר aphar discussed above) and ash (אפר).

The Seed

Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so.

In Hebrew it is written “His kind, whose seed is in Himself”

The Scriptures speak of 2 seeds that produce 2 trees since the beginning.  The tree of life which leads to life or the tree of knowledge which leads to death.  Torah vs religion.  Messiah vs antichrist.  Wheat vs tares.  The Holy Spirit vs the spirit of falsehood.  The children of obedience vs the children of disobedience.  Light vs darkness etc…

Both righteous and wicked are resurrected, just some plants spring forth and produce good fruit, while other plants produce rotten fruit that can’t be eaten.

The green plants that are eaten are called

עשׂב
‛eśeb

Which can be used in a good sense as in Genesis 1:30 or in a bad sense as seen in Psalm 92:7-8 speaking of the workers of iniquity.  This represents the Israel of Elohim who produces the good fruit, versus the false Israel (Esau – which linked to the above word eseb) who produces rotten fruit.

Above it was shown that hair/beards are linked to the resurrection through the word tsitsit.  Interestingly, the word for hair in Hebrew is se’ar which once again shows this concept of wheat vs tares.  Se’ir comes from this root and is translated as both goat or demon/devils.  The Tabernacle of YHWH was covered in goat’s hair.  The counterfeit is a false temple which is in the image of a demon/devil which links to the false god Pan and Mt. Hermon where the false Zion was located.

We must choose the garments of righteousness and salvation that are only found in Messiah Yahshua (Jeremiah 23:6; Isaiah 45:22-25; Isaiah 61:10; Romans 13:14click here) or we can choose to have our own righteousness that is nothing but filthy rags.

Isa 64:6  But we are all as the unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as a menstruation cloth. And we all fade as a leaf, and like the wind our iniquities take us away.

On the outside these filthy garments may look righteous, but YHWH knows the hypocrisy of the matter.

Mat 23:28  So you also indeed outwardly appear righteous to men, but within are full of hypocrisy (hupokrisis) and lawlessness.

Mat 15:7  Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
Mat 15:8  This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Mat 15:9  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Mat 15:12  Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
Mat 15:13  But he answered and said,
Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

Fruit

Psa 1:1  Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, and has not stood in the way of sinners, and has not sat in the seat of scorners.
Psa 1:2  But his delight is only in the Law of YHWH, and he meditates in His Law day and night.
Psa 1:3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivulets of waters, which will give its fruit in its seasons, and its leaf will not wither, and all which he does will prosper.

Jer 17:7  Blessed is the man who trusts* in YHWH, and YHWH is his refuge**.
Jer 17:8  For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters. It sends out its roots by the stream, and it will not fear when the heat comes; but its foliage will be green; and it is not anxious in the year of drought, nor will it cease from yielding fruit.

*The word for trust here means to cling to another

Interestingly, this is the root for the word for melon

The fruit that clings to the vine…

Joh 15:1  I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.
Joh 15:2  Every branch in Me not bearing fruit, He takes it away; and each one bearing fruit, He prunes, so that it may bear more fruit.
Joh 15:3  You are already pruned because of the Word which I have spoken to you.
Joh 15:4  Remain in Me, and I in you. As the branch is not able to bear fruit of itself, unless it remain in the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me.
Joh 15:5  I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one abiding in Me, and I in him, this one bears much fruit, because apart from Me you are not able to execute, nothing.
Joh 15:6  Unless one remains in Me, he is cast out as the branch and is dried up; and they gather and throw them into a fire, and they are burned.
Joh 15:7  If you remain in Me, and My Words remain in you, whatever you desire you will ask, and it shall happen to you.
Joh 15:8  In this My Father is glorified, that you should bear much fruit; and you will be disciples to Me.

The word for vine (grapevine) in Hebrew means to bend around a pole.

Amazingly, the Hebrew word for Father has the meaning of a pole

The root of the word for vine, gephen, is ‘kaph’ meaning palm.  This word links to the current study on numerous levels.  It is the Hebrew word for palm, which is used in disciple and chastisement (כח) to lead a child to maturity.  It is also used in the prophecy by Isaiah speaking of the cleansing of our garments.

Isa 1:18  Come now and let us reason (יכח) together, says YHWH: Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as the crimson, they shall be like wool.

כפה means the branch of a palm tree, mentioned above in connection to the resurrection.  This word is used in reference to the palm branches used to build one’s sukkah during the Feast of Sukkot (Leviticus 23:40).  כפה  also means to tame an animal which points back to the concept of maturity/completeness in the word כל, mentioned above.  כפה also has the meaning of bending the will towards another…submitting to the will/desire (ratzon) of the Most High.

As seen above, submitting to His will is a part of growing in patience and hope.

**The word for refuge in above passage in Jeremiah 17 (hope in the KJV) comes from the same Hebrew root as the above word for trust.  The word for patience in Greek is ‘hupomone’ which is used in the LXX to translate the Hebrew word miqveh.  Miqveh is also translated as hope.

Hope

It should come as no surprise that when studying the word Hope as found in the Scriptures it would connect on numerous levels to the current study, specifically resurrection in Messiah Yahshua.

Our Hope is Messiah Yahshua

1Ti 1:1  Paul an apostle of Jesus Christ according to a command of God our Savior, even the Lord Jesus Christ, our Hope,

Rom 15:12  And again Isaiah says, “The Root of Jesse shall be, and He rising up to rule the nations; on Him nations will hope. Isa. 11:10
Rom 15:13  And may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, for you to abound in hope, in power of the Holy Spirit.

Job 14:7  For there is hope of a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again, and its shoot will not cease.
Job 14:8  Though its root becomes old in the earth, and its stump dies in the dust,
Job 14:9  at the scent of water it will bud and bring forth branches like a plant.
Job 14:10  But man dies and is cut off, and man expires; and where is he?
Job 14:11  As the waters go away from the sea, and a river wastes away and dries up,
Job 14:12  even so man lies down and does not rise until the heavens are no more, they shall not awake, nor be roused out of their sleep.
Job 14:13  Who will grant that You would hide me in Sheol; You would conceal me until Your anger turns back; that You would set a limit for me and remember me?
Job 14:14  If a man dies, will he revive? All the days of my warfare I will wait, until my change comes.
Job 14:15  You shall call, and I will answer You; You shall long to the work of Your hands.

The Word is our Hope

Psa 119:49  ZAYIN: Remember the Word to Your servant, on which You made me hope.
Psa 119:50  This is my comfort in my affliction; for Your Word has given me life.

Psa 119:81  KAPH: My soul is being consumed for Your salvation; I hope in Your Word.

Psa 119:114  You are my covert and my shield; I hope in Your Word.

Hope in His Name

Psa 52:9  I will thank You forever, because You have done it; and I will hope in Your name, for it is good before Your saints.

YHWH is our Hope

Psa 146:6  who made the heavens and the earth, the seas and all that is in them; who keeps truth forever;
Psa 146:7  who executes judgment for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry; YHWH sets free the prisoners;
(Matthew 11:5)
Psa 146:8 YHWH opens the eyes of the blind; YHWH raises those bowed down; YHWH loves the righteous;
Psa 146:9 YHWH watches over the strangers; He relieves the orphan and the widow, but He warps the way of the wicked.

Jer 17:14  Heal me, O YHWH , and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved; for You are my praise.

Jer 29:11  For I know the purposes which I am planning for you, says YHWH ; purposes of peace, and not for evil; to give you posterity and a hope.
Jer 29:12  Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
Jer 29:13  And you shall seek and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
Jer 29:14  And I will be found by you, says YHWH . And I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places where I have driven you, says YHWH . And I will bring you again into the place from which I sent you into exile, from there.

Isa 51:4  Hear Me, My people; yea, give ear to Me, My nation. For a law shall go out from Me, and My justice I will make rest as light to peoples.
Isa 51:5  My righteousness is near; My salvation went out; and My arms shall judge peoples; coastlands shall wait on Me, and they shall hope on My arm.

Isa 51:11  Yea, the ransomed of YHWH shall return and come to Zion with singing, and everlasting joy shall be on their head; gladness and joy shall overtake them; sorrow and sighing shall flee.
Isa 51:12  I, I am He comforting you. Who are you, that you should fear from man? He shall die! And from the son of man? He is given as grass.
Isa 51:13  And you forget your Maker YHWH , who has stretched out the heavens and founded the earth. And you dread continually, every day, from the fury of the oppressor, since he was ready to destroy. And where is the fury of the oppressor?

Messiah revealed through us

Col 1:27  to whom God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the nations, who is Christ in you, the hope of glory;
Col 1:28  whom we announce, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man full-grown in Christ Jesus,
Col 1:29  for which also I labor, struggling according to the working of Him who works in me in power.

Hope is linked with the resurrection

Eze 37:11  Then He said to me, Son of man, these bones are all the house of Israel. Behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is perished; we are cut off to ourselves.
Eze 37:12  So prophesy and say to them, So says the Lord YHWH : Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, O My people, and I will bring you to the land of Israel.
Eze 37:13  And you shall know that I am YHWH when I have opened your graves and have brought you up out of your graves, O My people.
Eze 37:14  And I shall put My Spirit within you, and you shall live; and I will put you on your own land. And you shall know that I, YHWH , have spoken and have done it, says YHWH .

1Pe 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, He according to His great mercy having regenerated us to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

1Pe 1:18  knowing that not with corruptible things, silver or gold, were you redeemed from your worthless way of life handed down from your fathers,
1Pe 1:19  but with precious blood of Christ, as a lamb without blemish and without spot,
1Pe 1:20  indeed having been foreknown before the foundation of the world, but revealed in the last times because of you,
1Pe 1:21  the ones believing in God through Him, He raising Him from the dead, and giving glory to Him so that your faith and hope may be in God.
1Pe 1:22  Having purified your souls in the obedience of the truth through the Spirit to unpretended brotherly love, love one another fervently out of a pure heart,
1Pe 1:23  being regenerated, not by corruptible seed, but incorruptible, through the living Word of God, and remaining forever.
1Pe 1:24  Because “all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of men as the flower of grass; the grass was dried, and its flower fell out,
1Pe 1:25  but the Word of the Lord remains forever.” And this is the Word announced as gospel to you. Isaiah 40:6-8

Tit 1:1  Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ according to the faith of the elect of God and full knowledge of the truth according to godliness,
Tit 1:2  on hope of eternal life which the God who does not lie promised before the eternal times,

Tit 3:5  not by works in righteousness which we had done, but according to His mercy, He saved us through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
Tit 3:6  whom He poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ, our Savior;
Tit 3:7  that being justified by His grace, we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

This hope will be fulfilled on the ’3rd day’ when Messiah appears and resurrects His people to rule and reign with Him
