Out From Babylon’s Womb (X-Rated!)

Posted on

Trigger Warning: Highly controversial, X-rated material featured inside this article! As I noted in my article, Gnostic Exegesis in Revelation 12, the Freemasonic scholar Manly P. Hall in the Secret Teachings of All Ages, claims the whore of Babylon of Revelation 18 is nothing more than a demonized version of Cybele (p. 188): Here also is introduced a symbolic figure, termed “the harlot of Babylon, “which is described as a woman seated upon a scarlet-colored […]

Where the Rainbow Ends and Begins

Posted on

In Revelation (3:10-12) (NRSV), we see Jesus telling the reader to endure in the faith and that the city of New Jerusalem will descend from heaven, at the end. 10 Because you have kept my word of patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. 11 I am coming soon; hold fast to what you have, so that […]

The Seven Parts of the Holy Spirit

Posted on

In the Gospel of John (14:26), we see Jesus saying: But the Parakletos, Who is the Holy Spirit, Who the Father will send in My name, He will teach you everything…” The pronoun “He” is demanded since the Greek word Parakletos, is a masculine noun.

The Children of Satan

This post will be a series of notes I’ve taken from my research into the controversy between Jesus Christ and the Jewish Pharisees from chapter 8 from the Fourth Gospel. 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” 33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in […]

Johnny Mercury: John the Baptist in Egypt

Posted on

Originally posted last year on Miguel Conner’s Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio site. As the transit of the sun by the planet Mercury on May 9 draws closer, one may wonder the lore associated with Mercury and how it relates to other religions such as Christianity. The cosmocrator, Mercury, does relate to one particular figure—John the Baptist. John the Baptist is a peculiar, eponymous hero that appears many times not only in Christianity and the Gospels, but also […]
