If you’ve been following my video blog on my YouTube channel with Part 1 of Welcome to the Unveiling, you will be at least aware of the legends associated with Ragnarok and the twin comets connected to Jormungand the Midgard serpent, and the monstrous giant wolf Fenrir which ritually consumes the Sun. The Fenrir Wolf’s relationship with the Sun is also seen in alchemy as well with the Green Lion eating the Sun–we’ll get this later. Perhaps one could say this post will feature a whole slew of videos for my readers to watch, ponder and reflect on.
After I released my part 1 video on the Welcome To The Unveiling series, Marvel released the trailer for their upcoming “The Eternals” which is about a team of superhero gods created by the “Celestials” (along with their sworn enemies being the monstrous and chimeric “Deviants”) which are a primeval race of titanic “ultraterrestial” archons that can seed and germinate life throughout the cosmos, as well as initiate Armageddons on multiple worlds throughout the universe. In the trailer, it features a scene in which a “comet” (in reality a celestial “seed”) crashes into Earth and immediately creates chaos all throughout the world, including earthquakes, tsunamis and other biblical calamities.
Whether this takes place in the long-ago past or in the “present” remains to be seen. Is this a subtle reference of the adversary “falling like lightning” per Jesus’s testimony in Luke 10:18 to the earth or the leviathan-like dragon combo of Samael/Satanael and Lilith that constantly threatens to snuff out all universal existence/creation? According to Rudolf Steiner, the “Ahrimanic” spirits consistently fall to the earth like shooting stars when they were/are cast out of heaven to the earth, just like it says in Revelation 12:7, with Michael hurling the great dragon and his angels into the earth/hell. This is the same Rudolf Steiner who would say that vaccines being the “future” or “final solution” of medicine (see the Dark Journalist YouTube video below). Earlier this year, we also had Lil Nas X come out with “Satan sneakers” and his signature homosexual brand of the usual Satanic/inverse pop rap music as well.
The idea of Michael hurling down Satan and his legions of fallen angels and demons to the sublunary realms is corroborated in the Testament of Solomon (attributed to King Solomon of course), as it says that the ancient fallen angels/demons dwell in the star constellations/stellar regions of the Zodiac. In the text, the Holy Angels of God are sent to man to thwart the malevolent influence of these Nephilim spirits that wander the earth and the cosmos. The Old Testament also says that astrology is evil. The Zoroastrians said the stars and planets were evil and controlled by demonic forces. The Book of Enoch says something to this effect, as well. But ironically, the Gnostics said the stars and planets were the evil archons, and some like the Valentinians taught that baptism freed you from the influence of the stars. All of this connects to Wormwood as well. According to Reading Acts, Wormwood connects to subjects already discussed on my blog:
The third trumpet resembles the plague of the freshwater in Exodus 7:20, the Nile turned to blood. That this is a “great star” with a specific name is important. Enoch describes fallen angels as “seven stars of heaven. . . like great mountains and burning with fire” (1 Enoch 21:3). It is therefore likely the image of a star falling from heaven refers to some kind of spiritual being.
Unlike Disney-saturated western world, “shooting stars” were signs of good luck. A falling star was bad luck and a comet was even worse. “…comets were considered prodigies that signaled the imminence of death and disaster (Manilius Astron. 1.892-926; cited by Aune 2:520). Anyone reading these verses in the first century would understand this as a “bad sign.”
Readers miss the point of third trumpet by focusing on the effects of a literal comet or meteorite hitting the earth. Along with these three examples in Jeremiah of the Lord giving Israel bitter or poisoned water to drink as a sign they are under God’s judgment, consider also Jeremiah 25:15-16:
Jeremiah 25:15-16 “Thus the LORD, the God of Israel, said to me: “Take from my hand this cup of the wine of wrath, and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it. 16 They shall drink and stagger and be crazed because of the sword that I am sending among them.”
The prophet is told to make the nations drink the cup of God’s wrath. Following this command, verses 18-26 list many nations, concluding with Babylon. The rest of the chapter describes the Lord’s judgment on the whole earth: “I am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth” (25:29). Verse 33 summarizes: “a great tempest is stirring from the farthest parts of the earth.” Just as in Jeremiah’s day, John describes a judgment on the world in which the Lord makes the whole world drink bitter water as a sign of their guilt.
Steve DeNoon of Israeli News Live also recently posted a video about the coming comet/asteroid curiously called “99942 Apophis” that will either hit the earth or fly close by in the year 2029–the year before the “Great” Reset is supposed to be completed in 2030. Steven also mentions the infamous Deagel calculations of a mass population die off of NATO affiliated countries by 2025–especially the United States of America. With the looming mandatory vaccination/social credit passes that are about to be unleashed globally along with various biological attacks, martial law-like lockdowns, democide sounds like a distinct and real possibility. All of this reminds us of the infamous prophecy regarding Wormwood of Revelation 8. Tom Horn also talks about this planet killer asteroid, popularized in “acclimation” films like Deep Impact, Armageddon, Greenland, etc.
Wormwood seems to be comparable to something that happens in alchemy, when all of the planetary metals conjoin into something called the “One Thing” or the Monad as pursued by black magician John Dee and later Satanists who seek “Year Zero” aka the “New Aeon” of Horus/the Antichrist. Some people on YouTube seem to think the Wormwood Star is the twelfth planet Nibiru or the Destroyer as the Kolbrin Bible calls it and that “the Powers that be” are hiding it in the sky somehow. NASA plainly dismisses such an object as non-existent. Over at Lashtal, an internet forum dedicated to the works of the black magician Aleister Crowley, one board member also cites J. Daniel Gunther’s work on the subject of the New Aeon in connection with Wormwood.
In J. Daniel Gunther’s book Initiation In The Æon of the Child – The Inward Journey, published 2009. the author writes this on page 31:
There is a far deeper meaning of The Abomination of Desolation [mentioned in Daniel 11:31, Daniel 12:11, Matthew 24:15, and Mark 13:14 in the Bible that is understood by initiates. Aspirants should carefully study Liber VII [= Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli] and Liber CDXVIII [= The Vision and the Voice [mostly dated 1909 by Aleister Crowley]].”
In Liber VII, chapter III, verse 21, an “abominable lonely Thing of wickedness” is mentioned in the following way, “Thou shalt set up the abominable lonely Thing of wickedness. Oh joy! to lay that corner-stone!”
In THE CRY OF THE 21ST ÆTHYR, WHICH IS CALLED ASP, The Vision and the Voice, an “abomination of desolation” is mentioned in the following way:
“Nothing shall stand before His face”; all we have heard of thine infinite glory and holiness, of thy beauty and majesty, and behold! there is nothing but this abomination of desolation.”
On page 169 in the same book Gunther writes the following: “In chapter 5 of Liber LXV [Oct. 30-Nov. 3, 1907], the comming of the New Aeon is likened unto a Star that falls from the heavens upon the earth [Liber LXV, V:5 [chapter 5, verse 5, 6 and 7: “5. Now is the Pillar established in the Void; now is Asi fulfilled of Asar; now is Hoor let down into the Animal Soul of Things like a fiery star that falleth upon the darkness of the earth. 6. Through the midnight thou art dropt, O my child, my conqueror, my sword-girt captain, O Hoor! and they shall find thee as a black gnarl’d glittering stone, and they shall worship thee. 7. My prophet shall prophesy concerning thee; around thee the maidens shall dance, and bright babes be born unto them. Thou shalt inspire the proud ones with infinite pride, and the humble ones with an ecstasy of abasement; all this shall transcend the Known and the Unknown with somewhat that hath no name. For it is as the abyss of the Arcanum that is opened in the secret Place of Silence.”].”
On page 171 in the same book Gunther writes this: “The “fiery star that falleth upon the darkness of the earth” (LVX, V:5), and the star which is called Wormwood in the Apocalypse [Revelation 8: 10-11 in the Bible] are identical, the former fulfilling the inevitable need to restore balance within the psyche.”
And on page 172 in the same book, Gunther states that the Christian Bible in Luke chapter 10, verse 18: “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”, referres to “the same falling star described in our Holy Book, Liber LXV, V:5 [chapter 5, verse 5]”: “Now is the Pillar established in the Void; now is Asi fulfilled of Asar; now is Hoor let down into the Animal Soul of Things like a fiery star that falleth upon the darkness of the earth.”
In Magick in Theory and Practice, Crowley tells us more about the turbulent birth of the coming Aeon:
There is a Magical Operation of maximum importance: the initiation of a New Aeon. When it becomes necessary to utter a Word, the whole planet will be drenched in blood. Before man is ready to accept the Law of Thelema, the Great War must be fought. This Bloody Sacrifice is the critical point of the World-Ceremony of the Proclamation of Horus, the Crowned and Conquering Child, the Lord of the Aeon.
Interestingly, there is a documentary called The Wormwood Star featuring the occultist Marjorie Cameron, who participated in the infamous Babalon Working of the Satanists L Ron Hubbard and Jack Parson–mentioned in my Welcome to the Unveiling series. Wayne Bush over at Tricked By The Light also connects Wormwood with parasitic worms, the Gnostic demiurge, the Egyptian Apep, John Milton’s Satan as a worm, and the alchemical Ouroboros/Leviathan.
After doing R. Wayne Steiger’s show, a very astute listener wisely commented to me, “I find it interesting worm comes from serpent and snake. After quitting processed foods, sugar and chemicals back in 2013 and doing a parasite cleanse, I really started to wonder about the Adam and Eve story. Was the eating of the fruit a way for a parasite to enter our gut and change the way we think? Since cleaning up my gut it really seems like a portal. A literal worm hole…“
I find it curious that wormwood, of Revelations fame is also a Greek word is believed to “refer to a plant of the genus Artemisia, used metaphorically to mean something with a bitter taste. The English rendering “wormwood” refers to the dark green oil produced by the plant, which was used to kill intestinal worms. “
You say it’s farfetched? Well, consider the fact we are in a perpetual struggle with organisms and viruses that live within our bodies. Yes, some bacteria are considered friendly, but there are also unfriendly bacteria that make us sick. Many take flu shots every year to combat viruses. Inside us, we have a constant battle raging between white and red blood cells. I would venture to say that the number of people who have parasites is much higher than doctors let on. In fact, one woman I mentioned this to wrote, ” I have been tested for parasites by 2 different doctors and 2 different tests. One said I had a lot of parasites, the other said none.”
Just how prevalent are worms? In mythology, there is the Ouroboros (OUR-oboros), the serpent or worm that devours its own tail and encircles the world. Compare Our-obros with this spelling of Demiurge: Demiourgos. Wikpedia says, “The ouroboros or uroborus (/ˌ(j)ʊərəˈbɒrəs/, also UK: /uːˈrɒbərɒs/, US: /-oʊs/) is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.
On August 20th, while watching a string of different videos, I managed to come across some YouTube videos about the so-called “Cathar prophecy” involving a Cathar martyr Guilhem Belibaste who supposedly uttered the following phrase before he was roasted alive along with the rest of the Cathar heretics by the Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church:
“We shall return in 700 years when the laurel turns green again”.
What is a laurel exactly? A laurel is a wreath worn on the head, usually as a symbol of victory. If you see an image of Julius Caesar, chances are he’s wearing a laurel. As it follows, the Cathars were somehow supposed to return on August 21, 2021. While there are certainly doubts towards the veracity of such a “prophecy” it does connect to some of the YouTubers like Twin Flames International and Ask Angels with Melanie Beckler and their announcements of “ascension energy” from gigantic portals from “Lion Gates”. On Waves of the Future, it directly ties Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes, the Cathar prophecy, and the Albigensian Crusade/Genocide, reminding us of democide waves. Considering current events, this prophecy is highly significant.
While watching the above video, it occurred to me that the “laurel” that “turns green again” refers to the Holy Grail, in the form of the “Emerald Tablets of Hermes” or the diadem (considered by some to be the Holy Grail) that fell from Lucifer’s Crown in the War in Heaven when he was cast down by St Michael. In alchemy, there is something called the Green Lion. One website dedicated to Medieval alchemy relays the Green Lion’s self-declaration:
“I am the true green and Golden Lion without cares, In me all the secrets of the Philosophers are hidden.”
In the paper The Myth of Asherah: Lion Lady and Serpent Goddess by Steven A Wiggins, she is associated with the sycamore tree, the tree of life, lions, serpents, Hathor, Tanit, Astarte, the Queen of Heaven of Jeremiah, and the Wisdom consort of Yahweh. She is the quintessential embodiment of the Sun Lady.
In the Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio interview with Amanda Radcliffe–a Cathar priestess/Gnostic bishop, also claims and shows in her possession of black meteorite stones, which apparently bleed. Midway into the interview, Amanda mentioned there will be a “shift” in the “collective unconscious” that will really start to be evident next year in 2022. I actually did an interview with Amanda Radcliffe but the archons ruined it so the interview was unsalvageable.
Here’s what another Cathar medium Anaiya Sophia has to say on the subject of the Cathar Holy Grail:
Cathars believed the human spirit was an androgynous angel trapped in the material realm of the evil god, destined to be reincarnated until they achieved salvation through the consolamentum when they would return to the good god, in their original innocence.
Those who choose to become a parfait would spend 3-4 years in an enclosed community who lived in caves, where they prayed, reflected and purified their minds and bodies. During this period the parfait-to-be would move through three different caves, known as the Eglise, Hermit and Bethlehem. These three stages would open and prepare the novice to receive the consolamentum, at such immense depth, that its effects would last the remainder of the lifetime – and quite possibly, beyond.
Once a parfait, they would leave their local community and go out to spread the word, heal the sick and bring the spirit to all those who quenched. They always did this with another parfait, walking the old pathways in their navy blue robe, simple rope belt and book of love (they had transcribed in their own hand) clutched under their arm. As for the Holy Grail, it always remained in one place – the Bethelem cave.
Once the final crusade bludgeoned its way toward the last Cathar stronghold in March 1244, at a place called Montsegur, it is said that a second crucifixion took place. This one, being the crucifixion of the Feminine Christ – the Light of the World. However, as 224 Cathars descended the mountain of Montsegur, they were singing. Despite being starved and frail from months of siege and cold winter weather, they carried within them the spirit that Mary had rekindled within them.
This key Cathar belief is confirmed by the Cathar text, the “Interrogatio Johannis (also known as “The Secret Supper – The Book of John the Evangelist”.
 And still I, John, questioned the Lord, saying, “Lord, how did man have spiritual origin in a carnal body?” And the Lord said to me: “By their fall spirits of heaven entered the female body of clay and took on flesh from the lusts of the flesh and took on [spirit at the same time]. . . . Spirit is born of spirit and flesh of flesh; and thus the reign of Satan ceases not in this world.”
In the article simply titled “Cathars” by Jason J Mark, of World History Encyclopedia, he writes about Cathar beliefs in their radical dualism, citing the Bible to support their stance, as cited in their Book of Two Principles, which is far too long to quote. (Maybe another time!)
The Book of Two Principles related, among other aspects of the faith, the dualist nature of life and how humans, once divine spirits of light, came to be bound in corruptible mortal flesh.
The story goes that the devil came to the gates of heaven and requested entry but was denied. He waited outside the gate for a thousand years, watching for a chance to slip in, and one day he saw his opportunity and took it. Once inside, he gathered an audience of divine spirits around him and told them they were losing out by continuing to love and serve God who never gave them anything. They were little more than slaves, he said, since God owned everything they thought they had. If they would follow him, however, and leave heaven, he could provide them with all kinds of pleasure such as lovely vineyards and rich fields, beautiful women and handsome men, wonderful riches, and the best wine.
Many souls were seduced and for nine days and nine nights they fell through the hole in heaven the devil had created. God allowed this for those who wished to leave but other souls were falling through the hole and so God sealed it. After the souls had fallen, they found themselves in the devil’s realm without any of the good things he had promised and, remembering the joys of heaven, they repented and asked the devil if they could return. The devil replied that they could not because he had fashioned for them bodies which would bind them to earth and cause them to forget all about heaven.
The devil made the bodies easily enough but could not manage to attach the souls to them so they would think, feel, and move; vexed by this, he asked God for help. God understood that the souls who had fallen would have to work their way back to his grace and that they could do so through struggling with these bodies so he made a deal with the devil: the devil could do as he liked with the bodies, but the souls which animated them belonged to God. The devil consented, and humans were created.
Trapped in these bodies, the soul would live, die, and be reborn in another as long as that soul remained attached to the body and the pleasures which the devil had promised it back in heaven. Once the soul renounced the body and all its temptations, it would be freed to return to God and resume its former state. The whole purpose of human existence was this struggle against the devil (known as Rex Mundi, “the king of this world”) and the prison of the flesh.
The videos below connect to what is being expressed above if you have the time and patience to follow along.
So what are we to make about all of this? Interestingly Melanie Beckler in the above link mentioned the “bifurcation” of the timeline as well. This reminds me of what Mike Magee has to say in his commentary on the Tarot Major Arcana Devil card in connection with Cathar beliefs.
In the perfect state of heaven the Devil has no power. The dualist eastern religions seemed to recognize the Devil as being time itself, or responsible for creating time, and time is the great corrupter. Thus in Zoroastrianism, the original Perfect creation of Ahuramazda was static, but the Evil Spirit corrupted it by introducing time into it. Modern science would identify the Devil with entropy, and some medieval pictures showed him as responsible for decay, the characteristic of the physical world.
The soul has crossed over to the spiritual level and can look back to the material world it has left, the realm of the Devil. He sees the Devil standing dominant over the world, shown as a plinth, a castle or prison, with the inhabitants chained in captivity, and shown as devils themselves. Of course, the Devil is also an immortal spirit and so is shown as an androgyne. Rather than horns, the Church’s successful attempt to identify the Devil with the classical god of fertility, Pan, the Evil Spirit is shown wearing a horned helmet. The horns on the helmet look like antlers, and some think the witches worshipped a horned god, like Cernunnos. If they did, it was mockery not serious worship, the heretics being fully aware that this world is thoroughly wicked, and their destination was purity. The Devil worked his trickery through earthly institutions that had to be obeyed, like the Church and the secular authorities, meant to keep people in bondage and ignorant of how to escape it. Having escaped, it all becomes clear.
All of these connections remind me of the legends associated with the “leontocephaline,” also known as the Mithriac deity “Aion,” the god of eternal time. On Craig Chalquist’s Gnostic Antecedents of Jung’s Key Concepts, he says the following about Aion as a union of opposite forces.
|Aeon/Aion: a Gnostic and Mithraic god; a cosmic interval of time. Jung says little about the Gnostic version as such because he knows aeons are archetypes. |
“Aion is the god of the union of opposites, the time when things come together” (1984, p. 430). “The figure of Aion usually stood at the main altar of the Mithras cult—he is a man with a lion’s head, enveloped by the Zodiacal snake, Zrvan akarana, meaning ‘boundless time’” (2010a, p. 205).
“The Valentinian text gives the Autopator more positive qualities: ‘Some called him the ageless Aeon, eternally young, male and female, who contains everything in himself and is [himself] contained by nothing’” (1979, P. 191).
|“Aeon” is an eternal realm, being, or celestial emanation. All aeons have archetypal names: Logos, Life, Hope, Love, First Thought, Insight, Grace, Prudence, Nameless, Unbegotten, Conception, Spirit, etc. Tangible types and images come forth from the invisible aeons inhabiting the pleroma (“fullness”). |
The aeon known as the Demiurge consorts with snakes and bears and wears the head of a lion (compare the cover image of Jung’s book Aion). Archangels are emanations of aeons: archetypal images also described as “psychic” and “spiritual.”
In the First Book of Jeu Jesus tells his disciples that only gnosis can save the soul “from the archon of this aeon and his persecutions…You become whole through a freedom in which there is no blemish” (Schmidt & Macdermot, 1997, p. 46).
As discussed in my book, The Sun Lady Unveiled, in the article “The Archangel Michael in Ophite Creation Mythology” by Tuomas Rasimus, the author elaborates on the Ophite Gnostics and their associations with the Gnostic demiurge Yaldabaoth and Michael, the fiery archangel that happens to rule over the Zodiacal sign of Leo. Rasimus connects the fourfold angelic manifestation of God being the tetramorph being turned into a hebdomad of angelic archons/governors, either by the author of the Ophite diagram or someone even earlier. In other words, Michael was seen as the face of the demiurge. He emphasizes the leonine aspect of Michael as well.
Moreover, it may have been Michael’s lion-shape that specifically suggested a connection with the now demonized YHWH-Yaldabaoth, since in the Hebrew Bible both YHWH and the devil are depicted as lions. While Bernard Barc and Howard Jackson suggest that Yaldabaoth inherited his lion-shape from the devil (based on Psalms and 1 Pet 5:8) or YHWH (influenced also by Greco-Egyptian magic), I agree with Fossum that it actually comes from Michael who had been identified with the lion-shaped living creature around God’s throne. The fusion between Michael and Yaldabaoth then endowed the latter with his often-attested leonine appearance. The fusion itself derives partially from Michael’s status as the leading angel and from his leonine shape, but especially from the notion that the God of Israel is not the true God, but an angel.
Ancient Mystery connects the lion-faced deity with the destroying angels of the Old Testament in the below video. If you read the Book of Enoch, Uriel is listed as one of the pitiless, destroying angels that incinerated Sodom and Gomorrah, a psychopomp guide to Enoch when they tour heaven and hell, and an angel of punishment for sinners cast in Hades. Interestingly, Uriel is thought of as being the “Regent of the Sun” in John Milton’s Paradise Lost is depicted as such.
In a rather lengthy dissertation of Lewis O Anderson in The Michael Figure in the Book of Daniel, he summarizes the role of Michael in biblical theology. In the paper, he provides various citations supporting the connection between Michael and Christ, as the Seventh Day Adventists and Jehovah’s Witnesses maintain. Jesus is also referred to as the “Lion of the tribe of Judah” in Revelation 5:5-6, as well.
In the book of Daniel, The Michael figure, although mentioned only three times, occupies a prominent position in history and at the eschaton as the heavenly guardian prince of Israel. The Michael problem, although complex, may be understood as basically twofold: Who is Michael? What is Michael’s function?
In the first question, a basic issue is whether Michael is a prominent angel, or a divine, messianic being. Another issue in this same question is the extent to which Michael is to be identified with other 0T beings, within or outside the book of Daniel, such as the Son of Man, Prince of the Host, and Angel of the Lord.
In the second question, Michael’s function in history in relation to the princes of Persia and Greece and his activity at the For example, is his function military, judicial, or both?
The conclusions reached are as follows: Michael is leader of the angelic hosts and of Israel, Daniel’s people. He is Israel’s patron, leader and guardian, in history and at the eschaton. Michael appears to be more than an angel. With his own distinct identity, occupying a position of focus and attention more characteristic of the divine being and functioning as heavenly warrior who intervenes to save his people Israel, Michael is another depiction of God.
Michael is identified with the Prince of the Host of Yahweh, a veiled depiction of God and the messianic, divine Son of Man. The Angel of the Lord is a precursor of Michael, functioning as God’s visier and Israel’s guardian, as does Michael in Daniel. Michael is God in His role as divine warrior, acting in behalf of His people Israel in salvation and judgment.
The heavenly being who appeared in the fiery furnace is likely the divine Angel of the Lord, and is therefore probably Michael, Israel’s guardian. Michael struggles in history with the demonic prince of Persia to prevent him from influencing the Persian king(s) to stop favoring Israel.
Michael’s eschatological functions are both judicial and military as he destroys the anti-God persecuting power, superintends the deliverance of Israel and the resurrection, and inaugurates the glorious new age.
Why the focus on St. Michael you may ask? According to Bogomil belief (a cousin or variant Cathar sect), Michael was considered interchangeable with the “Son-Logos” who assumed the form of Jesus Christ on earth when he entered the Virgin Mary’s ear and incarnated, as discussed by Yuri Stoyanov in The Other God: Dualist Religions from Antiquity to the Cathar Heresy (p. 268).
While his Passion, death and Resurrection were unreal, he was victorious in battle against the rebellious Samael-Satanael. In this version of Bogomil Christology it was after the victory of Christ-Michael over Satanael that God’s first-born lost his last “divine syllable” -el (Lord) and was cast fettered into the pit, while Christ-Michael ascended to Satanael’s former throne to the right of the Father. It has been assumed sometimes that this with his fall Satanael’s seniority had automatically passed to the Son-Logos and following his triumph and imprisonment of the God’s first-born, Christ-Michael returned to his ultimate source, the Good Father.
Elsewhere in the book, Stoyanov mentions how certain beliefs of Devil-worshipping witches and sorcerers (as confessed through the Inquisition interrogations and torments) got transferred over to the Bogomil-Cathars, claiming that their dualism appeared in a reversed, blasphemous form typical of Satanism. Indeed, the Bogomils (meaning “friends of God”) were accused, by the Papacy, of being secretly Luciferians while engaging in blasphemous orgiastic rites of child sacrifice and made Eucharistic bread from their blood. The Papacy also accused them of worshiping and placating Lucifer/Satanael while maintaining that Jesus Christ was Lucifer’s “younger brother.”
Furthermore, they supposedly believed that Christ’s death was ineffectual against the Devil. Jules Loiseleur in La doctrine secrète des Templiers maintains that the Knight Templars followed the heresies of these Bogomils and rejects Purgstall’s theory that they were secretly Ophites for his own construct. This connects to the demonization of Michael as Samael, as the Gnostic Ophites thought, as reported by Irenaeus, an Orthodox bishop of Lyons, France. According to the “Apostolic Gnosis” site and many other sources, the Cathars claimed they could spot several instances of radical dualism throughout the Bible, that we also see in the Manichaean and Zoroastrian religions as well.
In the article “In Search of A Missing Link: The Bogomils and Zoroastrianism” by Ewa Weiling Feldthusen, the author cites Bogomil beliefs about the fall of Satan as being analogous to the creation of the world, along with Adam and Eve and their fall from Eden. They claimed that God the Father actually helped Satan create the earth, along with Adam and Eve! God realizes his error and in response, sends Michael to overthrow Satan and chain him up in the fires of hell.
Thus they taught that God the creator and cosmocrator, the ruler of cosmos, realized that in helping Satan in his act of creation, he consequently created an evil world, and decided to send forth his Son, the word, called by the Bogomils the Archangel Michael. According to Bogomil cosmology Michael was subsequently born not out of the Virgin, but entered into her right ear and went out as he had entered. According to Bogomil myth, the Virgin never gave birth to God’s son, but instead found him lying swaddled in the cave. After the apparent crucifixion, the Son bound Satanael with a thick and heavy chain and shut him in Tartarus taking from his name the angelic syllable -el. Satan’s reign on the earth has yet not ended as according to the Bogomils: “Every man has a resident demon, who teaches him evil and leads him to evil actions, and when he is dead, it inhabits his remains and stays in his tomb, and awaits the resurrection, to be punished along with him, and is not separated from him, even in punishment” (Hamilton, 1998: 194).
Zigabenus adds afterwards that the Bogomils borrowed this apprehension from the Massalian (or Messalian) heresy. In general, these two heresies were usually juxtaposed and considered equal, although the differences between them are much more significant then the similarities. The reasons why the adversaries of Bogomilism associated it with Massalianism can be found in common demonology and the similar patterns of prayer. The Massalians – members of a sect that originated in Mesopotamia about 360 AD and survived in the East until the eighth century, were called “praying people.” This was because they understood the words of St Paul “pray continuously” quite literally, and they did no work of any kind in order to dedicate their whole day to prayer without cease. The principal tenet of their faith was that every person inherited a demon from his ancestors – a demon who had possession of that person’s soul from the moment of his birth, and which would always lead them to evil.
They believed further, utilising a botanical metaphor that baptism cut away the outside branches of sin, but could not free the soul of this demon, and that baptism was therefore useless. According to this system of belief, only constant prayer could drive the demon out. Finally when the demon had been expelled, the Holy Spirit would descend and give visible and sensible marks of His presence. After this had occurred, the Holy Spirit delivered the body from all the uprisings of passion, and the soul from the inclination to evil and the Bogomilist no longer needed to fast, or to concern himself with controlling lust according to the precepts of the Gospel.
From my discussion with others, there is a general feeling like nothing is happening and everything is falling apart, at the same time. I feel like this is what is happening to the old world as if it’s being alchemically destroyed and reconstituted into another universe or “Aeon” in Gnostic lingo. Klaus Schwab of the WEF has made similar statements in his book Covid-19: The Great Reset. Over at Vrilology.com, the authors of Balder Rising (Robert Blumetti and Robert Zoller), say the following about the Old World Order, the awakening of the gods, and the return of Valhalla to Midgard (Earth).
The old order is in advanced decay. The world as we know it is rapidly falling apart. The West is in a state of decline and the forces of darkness are rapidly spreading across the world. We stand between two ages—the wheel turns. The previous age is fading into the past as Loki is rallying the forces of destruction to assault the old order, plunging the world into chaos. The darkness and oppression of the great winter, Fimbul, is quickly overtaking the ordered world of the previous age. We are entering a time of the Giants, when their chaos will rule over mankind, shattering the institutions, traditions and nations that gave meaning and hope to our people and ancestors. We are entering a new dark age–the Age of Fimbulvetr.
The same authors wrote another article called Odin Consciousness and claimed the following:
“In reality, only a change in the attitude of the individual can bring about a renewal in the spirit of the nations,” wrote Carl Gustav Jung. He understood that for a people to change, individuals must change first. I wrote The Book of Balder Rising because if our people are to survive the coming collapse of the old order (Western Civilization) we have got to begin to change the spirit of our people. By that change I mean unleashing the essence of the Gods which lies dormant within each and every one of us. The Gods and Goddesses are asleep within our very DNA. They are waiting to be called back and once again forge a new bond between mortal and immortal. This process is known as Balder Rising. To accomplish this, we must begin with the individual. The essence that lies dormant is the Odin Consciousness, which manifests itself in the mythological symbols, folk tales and legends of our Folk. We can tap into these images, which reside deep within the subconscious, and release their power to transform us. They govern the religious, artistic, philosophical, heroic, and idealistic impulses that provide the traditional archetypes, by which we—the race, nation or Folk—express ourselves as a people. These instruments build our culture and civilization. Some might refer to this as the racial memory, and we as both individuals and collectively can respond to these archetypes. These archetypes can initiate a revitalization of the soul and the will on both the individual and collective levels.
As each of us travel through life, we must make decisions that will change the course of our future—or so we think. This is the belief in free will. But nothing is free in the universe. Everything we do, say, and think has a price. Thus every decision will have consequences. The Norns are believed to weave the threads of our destiny, and some interpret this as predestination. But what the Norns weave are simply pathways that we may take. There are many crossroads in these pathways, and when we come to a crossroad we must make a decision. There is a certain degree of free will involved, but at the same time we are limited to the choices provided for us. I consider these choices tests the All-Father presents to us to prove our worth. This process is referred to as Wyrd. What destiny lies in wait for us depends on the choices we make—which pathways we decide to travel. If we make the wrong decisions, then the Gods may choose another to fulfill their plans.
In the beginning, was the Wyrd. The gods are indeed awakening in time to battle the Giants once again while contacting their heralds in time for the End of Days. Vril aka the “Odin/Balder force” is also the same force that other world cultures call “chi,” “reiki,” or “prana.” There was also an inner circle of Satanists within the Nazi party called the Vril Society or the Order of the Black Sun, dedicated to the study and hijacking this etheric substance, along with Black Sun-worship–which connects to Saturn/Satan/Cain. Perhaps this is the driving force behind the plandemic, the Nazi-like authoritarian push for global vaccinations and biometric health-passes–which is essentially the doctrine of the “Great” Reset of the World Economic Forum. The only history will be written by the tyrants. Once ensnared into a global digital gulag and the “internet of bodies” panopticon, there will be no escape. Unless, of course, Wormwood decides to crash into the earth and destroy all of reality. It will all signal the end of history and the extinction of the human race as we know it now. As Titus Groan reveals, the ultimate aim of the Antichrist is the following:
This is the ultimate goal of Evil, to cut man off from all knowledge of his true spiritual inheritance by blinding him to the spiritual hierarchies and, more importantly, removing all knowledge of Christ from his consciousness.
This is the aim of the spirit of Antichrist: to make spiritually blind and then to obliterate all knowledge of Christ and of His true Nature as the Great Redeemer from the souls of men.
The Great Light of the Apostolic Message of the First Church in the First Age that had burst forth on the Earth at a most critical time in its history, by pulling mankind back from the spiritual abyss, was targeted by Ahriman for destruction at its beginning.
Welcome to the Age of Wormwood. This is the “new normal” of the New Aeon of Horus/Lucifer. What better way to cut off your spiritual connection to God through the digitization of human consciousness akin to something like The Matrix? That’s how one author, Felix Aleman, defines the Antichrist system:
The architects and ideologues of the NWO (the Sinarchy; that is, the worshippers of the Demiurge) constantly tell us that there is no other possible way of government than the “democratic”, “western” one. This is the only that can bring us “freedom” and sicure our “human rights”. It may have some defects, they recognize sometimes, but it´s definitely the best one, if not the only one, and sooner or later all the remaining “dictatorships” (that is, the countries that still resist the globalist process) will fall, and a world republic (a dream of Marxists as well as liberals; communism and capitalism being two sides of the same “coin” – money is internationalist) will be established. What they “forget” to tell us, however, is who will rule this “global paradise” and how. It will be a worldwide tyranny by a plutocratic “elite”, where a very small number of people would have absolute power and the rest of us would be slaves… many without even knowing it (like the prisoners in Plato´s cave), because most of the controlled-enslaved ones will believe they live “in democracy”… living actually in the “hell on earth”.
This has been and is, as mentioned above, a very long-term process (that accelerates and intensifies with the advance of the Kali Yuga). It is like the famous tale of the cooked frog. If you put her in a pan with boiling water, she will immediately jump out and save herself, but if you put her in the pan when the water is just lukewarm and you gradually increase the heat, she will be slowly cooked before she notices, and explode. Exactly the same has happened to us; they have brainwashed us little by little with the deceptive and subversive dogmas of the modern world. We have been educated to be slaves inside of the demiurgic matrix, and most modern people (particularly westerners) are even “happy slaves”.
This brings us to what will supposedly occur in 2025–a key date for world civilization. According to Tom Horn, the New World Order will be semi-operational by 2025, along with the return of the “Grail king”–e.g., the Antichrist–the “little” horn prophesied in Daniel. Tom Horn cites the Washington D.C. phallic monument, along with the Capitol Dome, are ritualized monuments to conjure the rise of the Beast. He also cites various Masonic temples and architecture as proof of a Satanic/Antichrist conspiracy to not only take over the world but also to storm the Heavens and take on God himself.
Considering the shit-show chaos erupting in Afghanistan as well as the catastrophic fallout from Hurricane Ida, various droughts leading to famine, flooding, rumbling volcanic activity, and the hyperinflation of food/agriculture–perhaps we are witnessing a sneak preview of the great tribulation as prophesied in the Bible. Tom Horn highlights the convergence of amazing prophetic milestones and scheduled events that appear to strikingly line up with clear biblical prophecy. And so, we now, we sit back and watch this clown show unfold–all moving towards Revelation 13 and 14–like a “flood.” Coincidentally, 2024 is when the eclipse is supposed to be completed from 2017–thus forming an X over America.
I’m thinking this Cathar prophecy of the laurel turning green again refers to the spirits of the Cathars or the Cathar religion returning to this world somehow. Considering what is currently happening with this authoritarian rollout for lockdowns, China-styled health passports/mandatory vaccinations/social credit scores, threats of WW3, and quarantine camps–it all feels like the spirit of both the “Holy” Inquisition and the Nazi-styled police state has returned as well, just in time for the Aquarian New Atlantis/New World Order. At the same time, the focus on “conspiracy theories” can lead one to thoughts of defeat and empty, hollow canals. Madness is at a fever pitch in this Zeitgeist. We are at a very curious impasse in history.
Speaking of spirits of Cathars, according to Apostolic Gnosis, the founder of the French Gnostic Church tradition, Jules Doinel established it based on a séance he and others were involved with. After the Church was established, Doinel suddenly had a change of heart and suddenly became a Roman Catholic, and collaborated with Leo Taxil to write an expose on Gnosticism and Freemasonry called Lucifer Unmasked. What’s interesting about this connection is that Leo Taxil is also the one that is pegged to be the true author of the Three World Wars letter of Albert Pike. As pointed out in my book, The Sun Lady Unveiled, I discussed the work of Joe Fisher, who was involved in channeling his “spirit guides” which turned out to be wicked spirits from Hell. 1 Timothy 4:1 tells us exactly this:
4 Now the Spirit [a]expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons…
Richard Stanley, a film director who made films like Dust Devil, Hardware, and The Color Out of Space, spoke in recent interviews at great length about the Cathar mysteries and the Nazi grail hunter Otto Ran. This is related to the Vril society which he does not mention. In his YouTube video lecture “Matriarchy, Mary Magdalene, and the Cathar Traditions” he mentions the Cathar Book of Love. He also equates it with an Apocalyptic sounding the Book of the Seven Seals. He claims that the book will not be open until the Day of the Lord/Judgment Day. This sounds like the Book of Life, which plays an important role in Revelation as well. Val Winyard, who authored an article called “HOLY GRAIL part 2 Neo-Cathars” has this to say about the return of one specific Cathar spirit, which for our purposes, sounds a lot like the Sun Lady! Amanda Radcliffe also made similar claims in that the spirit of the Black Madonna manifested to her in the form of a “white” glowing lady as well.
The fortress of Montségur became a Cathar Cathedral. Esclarmonde de Foix was portrayed as a virginal high priestess. She changed into a dove as she was burnt alive, and her spirit flew to freedom. At spirit-raising sessions in Paris she started to appear to believers. Some people claimed to be reincarnated from her (and still do.)
But Esclarmonde was a popular name in the 12th century. The lady burnt was not Esclarmonde de Foix, for she would have been 90 years old at the time, having been born in 1154; she died in 1232. She is usually depicted as very young and beautiful and was a great lady who became a Parfaite, or lady Cathar priest. She is sometimes known as “the guardian of the Grail.” (Others think the true purpose of besieging Montségur was to find the Holy Grail and when the Catholics could not, they burnt the Cathars in revenge.)
There is a lot of online rumblings of a time of trouble to arise this month since it is the 20th anniversary of 9/11. 9/11 symbolized the destruction of the twin pillars that hold up the heavens–signaling the destruction of the universe and the storming of the heavens. It is notable that 9/06/2021 is the Feast of Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah–a date associated with the resurrection of the dead. One thing that is noteworthy in scripture, however, is the sign of St. Michael rising up, marking the 70th week of Daniel/Jacob’s Trouble/the Great Tribulation.
And at that time (the time of the end) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people (the Jews): and there shall be a time of trouble (the last 7 Vials of God’s wrath), such as never was since there was a nation EVEN TO THAT SAME TIME: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake (resurrect), some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” (Dan. 11:32-45, 12: 1-3)
This verse also connects to both Rev. 10:1-7 and Daniel 12:7, as pointed out by Jerome Gerbasi in his book The Prophetic Harmony of the Lamp of God…and the 70th Week of Daniel. Is the Hour of Temptation warned by Jesus Christ about to unfold within the next few weeks and months ahead? Who knows really. Maybe.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
At the same time, will the Cathar Universal religion set to return soon to thwart Rex Mundi’s counterfeit kingdom on earth? In a way, even Orthodox Christianity prophecy such a return as noted in The Third Age: Reflections on Our Hidden Material Core by Lenart Škof:
The three ages, as propounded by the authors of the Babylonian Talmud, refer to the chaotic age before the Law, to the age of the Law of Torah, and to the future Messianic age which is still to come. In the Middle Ages, this thought clearly resounded in the teachings of Joachim of Fiore (1135?−1202) whose idea was that history was divided into three ages—the Age of the Father (Old Testament), the Age of the Son (New Testament and Church), and the Age of the Spirit (Third Testament and new Spiritual Church) which is still to come and in which new religious orders would inaugurate a new Spiritual Church here on the earth.

This is the video companion piece to my essays “Welcome to The Unveiling”. More videos to come!
The Book of Revelation, chapter 12, tells us of a pregnant Woman Clothed with the Sun, wailing in birth pangs. It also tells us before St. Michael flung the dragon to the earth, he pursued the winged Sun Lady to devour her and her royal child of God. But in the last moment, they are snatched away to safety.
Many have speculated that this story connects to the great celestial sign pointing to a series of future calamities which are unfolding before our eyes. These stories, symbols, and archetypes point to an emerging revelation about humanity’s secret past and ultimate destiny.
We must travel back to ancient Israel, Samaria, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and Babylon to find the origins of the Sun Lady. Why does the occult place special emphasis on the Book of Revelation? Do you have the heart and mind to discover the truth? Join me, Alex Rivera, for an exciting and dangerous journey into the esoteric and hidden dimensions of the Sun Lady Unveiled!
Below are some photos of what the physical product looks like. It’s 514 pages, 5.98 x 1.31 x 9.02 inches thick, with a hard cover and a lovely dust jacket. Be sure to leave a review!
After 8 plus years of writing and producing free content, I will be hanging up the closed sign for this site for good. I am planning on going dark and perhaps even shutting this site down in favor of creating a brand new site just dedicated to my upcoming book, The Sun Lady Unveiled. I’m not sure exactly yet. What I do know is, I have put plenty of time and energy into this site but I get little to no financial support in return. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. I cannot survive on “NO MONEY” or “NO DONATIONS,” folks. It takes time, effort and money to get this information and podcasts published–which takes time away from my other work that actually puts money in my pocket. If this site means anything to you, then consider supporting my work in the future. I will be bundling most of my articles in a series of PDF’s for purchase in the near future since most of them are no longer available for free. I did leave a few choice articles online for reading, however. My Megas Aeon show likewise is canceled for good until further notice. A BIG thank you to all of you who have reached out, donated your money, time, energy and support. God bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ’s mighty name! Amen.
If anyone cares, I decided to return to just simple, convenient blogging for the time being. I confess, I thought about shutting this site down but the thought of throwing it all away pains me. I won’t be doing any elaborate podcasts or doing any premium content for the time being. I just can’t dedicate so much time and energy into something without getting something worthwhile in return.
That being said, I will be publishing a book hopefully by the end of this year, called The Sun Lady Unveiled. Here is a working blurb.
The Book of Revelation, chapter 12, tells us of a pregnant Woman Clothed with the Sun and the moon under her feet and crowned with twelve stars, wailing in birth pangs while trying to elude the dragon’s wrath. It also tells us when Michael the archangel flung the serpentine dragon or the Devil to the earth, he pursued the winged Sun Lady to devour her and her male child, the Promised One and the royal child of God. But in the last moment, they elude his flood of destruction and are snatched away to safety.
Many sources have identified the Sun Lady as Yahweh’s wife Asherah, Israel, Juno, Minerva, Hera, Isis, Sophia Achamoth, Eve, the Holy Spirit, Ishtar, Helen of Simon Magus, the Theotokos and the Virgin Mary of Eastern Orthodoxy and Catholicism. She is all of those things and so much more.
Others have speculated that this episode is somehow connected to some sort of rapture or translation of the saints or a great celestial sign pointing to a series of future calamities. It is best to avoid forecasting. However, these stories, symbols and archetypes point to an emerging revelation about humanity’s secret past and ultimate destiny.
We must travel all the way back to ancient Israel, Samaria, Egypt, Rome, Greece and Babylon to find the origins of the Sun Lady. How does King Solomon, Melchizedek, Mithras, Zoroaster, Enoch, Elijah, Jesus Christ, and Ezekiel have anything to do with all this? What does the occult have planned for the world and how do they connect with the Book of Revelation? Do you have the heart and mind to discover the truth? Join me, Alex Rivera, for an exciting and dangerous journey into the esoteric and hidden dimensions of The Sun Lady Unveiled!
I published the full video I uploaded a few months ago, free of charge. Enjoy!
A special note for all my readers: I am planning on publishing these articles in an e-book in the next few weeks. It is tentatively titled, “The Sun Lady Unveiled: Revelation 12 Decoded.” Stay tuned for more information, soon to come!
In my article, Render Unto Caesar: Paying the Last Penny, I noted how the language of Luke (21:35-37) presents the so-called “rapture” or the second advent of Christ as a snare or trap laden for “all those who dwell on the face of the whole world.” This is tied with what is being prophesied by St. Paul, writing about A.D. 51 to the Thessalonians for the second time, from Corinth, bids them understand that the Day of the Lord, of whose coming they seem to have been in immediate expectation, would be preceded by the manifestation of the “man of sin” or “son of perdition” (2. Thess. 2, 3) with a “falling away” or apostasy. 2 Thess (2:1-5) tells us that the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ will not occur until the man of lawlessness manifests and exalts himself, “over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” (We will revisit the Anti-Christ in another post.)
Interestingly, St. Paul also introduces the concept of the Winged Mother, the Harlot/Whore of Babylon and even the Heavenly Jerusalem that descends from heaven we see in later in the Book of Revelation (21:2). In Galatians (4:21-32) we read:
Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law? For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise, which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar—for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children—but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.
For it is written:
“Rejoice, O barren, You who do not bear! Break forth and shout, You who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children than she who has a husband.” Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.’” Now we brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. But as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.
In Galatians the old covenant community is represented by earthly Jerusalem. This is the exact equivalent of harlot Babylon in Revelation, the great city (Rev. 17:18; 18:21). Earlier in Revelation we are told that “the great city” was where Jesus was crucified (i.e., Jerusalem, Rev. 11:8). As in Galatians (4:29), the one woman persecutes the other woman (the harlot was persecuting the bride, Rev. 19:2). As in Galatians (4:30) the one women is cast out (the harlot, Rev. 18:21) at the time that the other Winged Woman receives her inheritance (the bride becomes married per Rev. 19:1-9).
Galatians (4:21-31) provides some of the backbone details for Revelation (12, 17 and 18). Revelation is a book about two women/cities who are two wives that represent the two covenants. The unfaithful widowed wife is destroyed and then the bride or the church becomes married with God’s Son in the Kingdom of God. By the way, this narrative also exists in the Parable of the Wedding Feast in Matthew (22:1-10.)
According to Margaret Barker in the Mother in Heaven and Her Children, the Sun Lady represents an ideal contained in the First Temple of Solomon, which is an interesting detail considering the darker origins of Solomon’s Temple we will get to later.
The vision of the Sun Lady concerns the restoration of the first temple. This is why it is so important to recover the world of the first temple, so that we can recognise the crucial elements in the New Testament that were signs of the restoration.
What I have proposed is a hypothesis, but it does make sense of a great deal of the evidence that is otherwise only fragments. The Sun Lady was the Mother of the Messiah who had been driven from her temple and replaced by the harlot. Only when the great harlot had been judged and destroyed could the Bride of the Lamb return, and here we glimpse another aspect of the ancient monarchy.
The Lady was the eternal Mother of the kings, and so she was the spouse of one king and also the Mother of the next. In Revelation she is also called the-Spirit-and-the-Bride, that double naming which characterised Temple discourse, and she gives to the thirsty the water of life (Rev.22.17). And this is why the Hebrew gospel had Jesus describe his Mother as the Holy Spirit, and the Book of Revelation depicts her as the winged Woman clothed with the Sun who gives birth to the Messiah.
We see in Revelation 12 that the Devil and 1/3rd (33%) of the angels from the “first estate” are cast out by Michael the Archangel. Ezekiel also expands on the fall of Satan. While comparing the King of Tyre with Lucifer, Ezekiel identifies Lucifer as the anointed cherub, who once walked in the Garden of Eden while covered in precious stones, including the emerald, and was perfect in his ways and from that day he was created until iniquity was found in him. Thus Ezekiel perpetuated the tradition of Isaiah by making Lucifer’s fall the product of pride. Ezekiel (28:13-16) (NKJV) makes a powerful proclamation against the “King of Tyre” which is a title for the archangel:
“You were the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
“You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
Till iniquity was found in you.
“By the abundance of your trading
You became filled with violence within,
And you sinned;
Therefore I cast you as a profane thing
Out of the mountain of God;
And I destroyed you, O covering cherub,
From the midst of the fiery stones.
Lucifer then resolves to rule in Heaven and this culminated in his expulsion from Paradise we see in what John the Revelator says in Revelation 12. The “fiery stones” can be interpreted as cosmic spheres or even planets which was once under the domain of Lucifer. We can call this the Biblical Star Wars! The asteroid belt could very well be the result of the cataclysmic destruction of Lucifer’s Kingdom of the “fiery stones.” In Isaiah (14:12–17), it portrays Lucifer having control of ruling over the nations on earth and this passage shows that there were nations of people and perhaps even angels, inhabiting earth at the time of Lucifer’s rebellion.
“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!”
According to one website, it speculates that the Earth, Mars and the planet called “Rahab” might have been part of this galactic kingdom:
The phrase, “which didst weaken the nations,” makes this quite clear. It can be gathered that before Adam, civilizations of angels existed on the earth and also perhaps on the other terrestrial planets. Satan was destroyed from the midst of the “stones of fire “, i.e.: the planets. We may find evidence of this in such places as the Cydonia section of Mars. One of the more interesting trips we could take is the legend of the destroyed planet Rahab which is thought to have been the home of an angelic civilization, perhaps Satan’s home world. It is thought to have been the fifth planet out, where the asteroid belt is now located.
The same author interprets how in Job and Genesis says that God looked upon the wiped out civilization and recreated it on another planet, made man in his own image (along with his fellow Elohim) and replenished it. However, the formerly anointed arch-angelic cherub, Lucifer, had other plans for the primal pair of humans in Eden. Skipping all the way to Matthew (4:8-10), we see the Devil confront and tempt Jesus during his 40 days fast.
Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’”
Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
It is quite clear that Jesus doesn’t contradict the Devil about his position of authority over the world, at all. In fact, the whole orientation of the Bible is to convince that (1) humans are fallible, fallen creatures in league with Satan and his demons; and (2) they are desperate need of a redeemer and (3) if they refuse the offer, they’re going down with Satan himself.
The Russian Theosophist, Helena Blavatsky tells us in Isis Unveiled (Vol. 2) page 206, that the Apostle Paul’s comments in the Letter to the Ephesians and 2 Corinthians are similar to that of the Ophite Gnostics.
The Biblical Paul, believing in all such occult powers in the world “unseen”, but ever “present,” says: “Ye walked according to the Aeon of this world according to the Archon (Ialdabaoth, the Demiurge) that has the domination of the air,” and “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the dominations, the powers; the lords of darkness, the mischievousness of spirits in the upper regions.” This sentence, “ye were dead in sin and error,” for “ye walked according to the Archon,” of Ialdabaoth, the God and creator of matter of the Ophites, shows unequivocally that: 1st, Paul, notwithstanding some dissension with the more important doctrines of the Gnostics, shared more or less their cosmogonical views on the emanations; and 2nd, that he was fully aware that this Demiurge, whom Jewish name of Jehovah, was not the God preached by Jesus. And now, if we compare the doctrine of Paul with the religious views of Peter and Jude, we find that, not only did they worship Michael, the Archangel, but that also they reverenced SATAN, because the latter was also, before his fall, an angel! This they do quite openly, and abuse the Gnostics for speaking “evil” of him.
NO one can deny the following: Peter, when denouncing those who are not afraid to speak evil of Dignities,” adds immediately, “whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them (the dignities) before the Lord”. Who are the dignities? Jude, in his General Epistle, makes the word as clear as day. The dignities are the DEVILS!! Complaining of the disrespect shown by the Gnostics to the powers and dominions, Jude argues in the very words of Peter: “Yet Michael the Archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee” Is this plain enough? If not, then we have the Kabala to prove who were the dignities.
Considering that Deuteronomy tells us that the “Lord” Himself buried Moses in a valley of Moab, “but no man knoweth of this sepulchre unto this day,” this Biblical lapsus linguae of Jude gives a strong coloring to the assertions of some of the Gnostics. They claimed but what was secretly taught by the Jewish kabalists themselves; to wit: that the highest supreme God was unknown and invisible; “The King of Light is a closed eye”; that Ialdabaoth, the Jewish second Adam, was the real Demiurge; and that Iao, Adonai, Tsabaoth, and Eloi were the quarternary emanation which formed the unity of the God of the Hebrews – Jehovah.
The opening paragraphs of Hypostasis of the Archons would support Blavatsky’s theory, as well. It states:
Their chief is blind; because of his power and his ignorance and his arrogance he said, with his power, “It is I who am God; there is none apart from me.” When he said this, he sinned against the entirety. And this speech got up to incorruptibility; then there was a voice that came forth from incorruptibility, saying, “You are mistaken, Samael” – which is, “god of the blind.”
The “King of Light is a closed eye” is a particularly interesting statement. In Tracy Twyman’s newest novel, Genuflect, she writes that the various eye in the triangle images in Freemasonry and even in our one dollar bill indicates a sort of “gateway” to a transcosmic, hyperuranium deity, similar to the God of the Pleroma we find in Gnosticism, above the creator or the Demiurge.
But this is, in fact, what the Masonic keystone represents. It is a stone that does just this: acting simultaneously as a deck prism and as a protective light filter. It is because it provides protection that it was represented as a “buckler” or a shield in Rothschild heraldry. This is why it’s so often represented on Masonic tracing boards in the arch of the sky, between the Sun and the Moon, forming a third, and higher, source of light. It’s a window that plugs up the hole, allowing the transcosmic God to see you, and perhaps for you to see him as well. This is why the Masons also represent the same concept with an eye in a triangle, sun‐like rays often streaming out of it, like a prism refracting light. Also used interchangeably with these symbols, or in combination with them, is the letter G, the seventh letter of the alphabet—which I believe stands for the Gamma ray, as I mentioned before. These Masonic images amply demonstrate that my interpretation is correct.
In the Old Testament, we see in Zechariah (3:8-9), how the appointed High Priest, Joshua is given a precious, holy stone with seven eyes that will somehow remove the impurity and immorality of his land. Please note that in Revelation (5:5-6), the slain Lamb is also depicted as having seven horns and “seven eyes.”
Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the Branch. For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day
The closed eye of the King of Light represents the Pleromic light hidden from the manifest world. In Paul’s writings, like in 2 Corinthians 3, Jesus appears “open faced” without a veil to shine the glory of the Lord upon the world. This is much how the skies open over Jesus when he is baptized in Matthew (3:16) (AKJV), “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, see, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting on him.” And it was Jesus who rent the otherwise closed veil as we see in Matthew (27:51). Over at OverLordsofChaos.com, the author states that the piercing of the veil may also be linked to the piercing of Jesus’ side by the “Spear of Destiny”:
Longinus had not only used the Spear to thwart the Temple guards’ dark ambition to mutilate Messiah’s body but had also caused the release of Christ’s blood that brought about the birth of the Cosmic Christ as the Earth Spirit. This slow descent of the Cosmic Christ from the highest celestial spheres and His becoming the Spirit of the Earth was the main concern of ancient mythology and part of the many great and weighty matters that is the Mystery of Golgotha. The instant the side of the divine-human called Jesus Christ was pierced the sun darkened, the skies dimmed, the earth quaked. In the Temple where Annas and Caiaphas eagerly awaited news of Messiah’s mutilation the Veil of the “Holy of Holies” in the Temple was rent from top to bottom (Matt. 27:51). As the veil of the Temple fell aside it exposed the black cube of the Old Covenant –the Yahweh Covenant- which at this most momentous time split along its sides and opened out in the form of a cross.
Perhaps we can say that it was Jesus who pierced the veil for the light of the transcosmic eye to shine through—hence the religion of the “open sky” was unveiled for all. The eye in the triangle typically represents divine providence of God overlooking mankind. The Spear of Destiny that pierced the side of Jesus is also connected to the so-called “Grail Bloodline” and the so-called “Anti-Christ,” in which we will see later in this series. Jesus can also be likened to the “spiritual sun,” hence the routine comparison between Jesus Christ and the Sun/Solar symbolism by many “astrotheologists” and “mythicists.” In the article The Gnostic Jesus: The Invisible Sun Behind the Sun by David Fideler, he writes the number 6 represents the physical cosmos while the number 666 equals to that of the physical sun. Meanwhile, the number 8 represents a higher spiritual order:
In numerology, the number of the physical world is six, the number of the spiritual world is eight. 600 is the number of “COSMOS”, while 800 is the number of the lord of the cosmos. Similarly, the sacred number of Jesus, 888, symbolizing the Spiritual Sun, is contrasted with the number 666, that of the physical sun.
In geometry, it is the figure of the Cube, which unites the numbers six and eight. That is because a cube has six sides and eight corners.
God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh, which was a Saturday. Jesus rose from the dead on a Sunday, which for the early Christians became the “eighth” day, symbolizing the new spiritual creation and the regeneration of time. The number 8, the Ogdoad, symbolizes the new order of Christianity, and Jesus, 888, was known as the Ogdoad to the early Christian Gnostics.
In the lower illustration, a cube is shown in isometric projection. Six rays emanate from a seventh inner point. These “seven stars” are the planets of traditional cosmology, led in their choral dance by the central point of the sun.
Viewed from another perspective, as in the upper illustration, we can see that there is more to the lower arrangement than meets the eye. Here, a seventh hidden ray is revealed, as is an eight point, the hidden Spiritual Sun from which all things flow.
One step further, the 666 can also represent the physical cosmos as well as the demiurge, who according to Marcion and many Gnostics, was Anti-Christ! In the same article, the author points out that the Roman-god Mithra can be identified as a “seven-rayed” deity. The “eye of light” represents the rift within Saturn’s cube, which represents the physical cosmos, where the Pleromic rays of light are caught inside to create life or drive the engine of creation. In fact, the “eye of light” is curiously called “Adam” in the Nag Hammadi text, the Wisdom of Jesus Christ, which corresponds to the idea of the Naassene “First Man” or the Manichaean Primal Adam and even the Second Adam/Logos doctrine of Paul per 1 Corinthians 15.
The perfect Savior said: “Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear. First Begetter Father is called ‘Adam, Eye of Light,’ because he came from shining Light, and his holy angels, who are ineffable (and) shadowless, ever rejoice with joy in their reflecting, which they received from their Father.
The “seven rays” theme can be found in Gnosticism and Theosophy as they relate to the seven pillars of the Holy Spirit. Over at Jesus8880.com, Daniel Gleason writes about isopsephia (the ancient Greek practice of gematria in which hidden meaning is found based on the numerical values of Greek letters):
Basilides was absolutely famous for combining mathematics with religion. Orthodox Christians viewed the practice of isopsephia as a kind of “number magic” and the graphing of diagrams (images) as “another kind of curious art.” There are three isopsehia riddles hidden in Irenaeus’ account: The barbarous name “Caulacau” is a pun on Isaiah 28:9-13 which reads . . . “To whom would God impart knowledge (gnosis)? To whom would he convey the message? . . . [F]or them the Word of the Lord shall be: command upon command, line upon line, here a little there a little.” The Hebrew pronunciation for the words “command” and “line” is SAU-LASAU and CAU-LACAU! Amazingly, it appears no one before me has bothered to compute the isopsephia value of the Greek spelling for the name Cau-la-cau (Kaeu-lae-kaeu). The answer is “888,” the same number as Jesus! The “coined name” Caulacau is thus a clever Gnostic riddle that equates the name Jesus with gnosis (knowledge)!
These authors are actually inspired by Irenaeus in Against Heresies (1.XV.2), when they equate Jesus with 888 since Marcus the Magician allegedly did the same thing with his esoteric numerology. In the Gnostics and Their Remains, by Charles William King, he writes how the seven rays connect to the crown of the demiurge or the Khnoubis, the 1st decan of Leo and much more:
Over the seven rays of the lion’s crown, and corresponding to their points, stand often the seven vowels of the Greek alphabet, ΑΕΗΙΟϒΩ, testifying the Seven Heavens; a mystery whereof notice shall be taken in the fitting place (p. 218).
Earlier in Revelation 2:17, Jesus tells the reader that the one who “overcomes” will be given a white stone with a new name:
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.
This white stone with a new name can be linked with the holy stone with the seven eyes we see in Zechariah. This white stone is the stone of acquittal, given to those who have been found not guilty. There is a hidden manna also bestowed upon the believer. The manna and the stone go hand in hand. Manna is a code word for divine love, the hidden mystery of God, revealed to the overcomers. The divine stone is also associated with the birth of Mithra, who was born from a rock. Revelation (2:26-28) also tells us that the “morning star” will be given to those same overcomers:
To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’ —just as I have received authority from my Father. I will also give that one the morning star.
The saved or the overcomers will also reign with Christ and sits on the throne with Christ and is given the gift of the “morning star” of salvation! In Ioan Culianu’s Tree of Gnosis (p. 153), we see the scheme of how the demiurge functions in relation to the Good God:
The revelation of the good God is not deserved by humans in any way, either as a result of relation or of any particular merit. The good God is totally alien to the world and has not been announced by anyone before Christ. Whereas the inferior Demiurge dwells in the first heaven, the good God, defined as superior and sublimior, dwells in the third. He deserves the title “Father” not because he is the Father of humankind but because he is the Father (Creator) of an immaterial and inaccessible World. An infinite distance separates this God, who reigns at the top of the universe, from the lower Demiurge, the god of this time period, deus saeculi huius. Whereas the Demiurge is primarily just, the superior God is good. He does not judge. Only pity moves him to reveal himself through Christ and make an end to the terrible Law. Although deprived of a physical body, Christ suffered and died on the cross, after which he went to hell, a place divided into a compartment where sinners are tormented, and a purgatory (refrigerium) for the righteous according to the Demiurge’s conception of justice. In the first he saved a few people who underwent cruel and unnecessary punishment.
Perhaps those who obtain the white stone are saved from the wrath of the demiurge and the judgment of the world, including the angels by Christ’s saints (1 Cor. 6:3). The “white stone” is also associated with the Temple Mount as well as the Foundation Stone story we see in texts like in 2 Enoch. Revelation explains that one day, the devil, and the principalities of St. Paul, will be forcefully evicted from heaven and thrown down to earth, where they will be in control for only a short time before their judgment comes as we saw previously in Revelation 12:7-9. The long article Domination by Deception by Peter Goodgame is also an essential key to our discussion of Revelation 12 and how it fits in with the current “zeitgeist.”
In the next post (or perhaps the book itself), we will see how the symbols used by Zechariah, Genesis, and Revelation are also integral in the Esoteric Hollywood’s predictive programming methods in popular culture. Do the films Dark City, Eyes Wide Shut and 2001: A Space Odyssey have special coded messages that refer to our reality and future events? We will also re-examine Baphomet and Mete’s special significance in this strange tale in light of Revelation, the Winged Mother, the Great Red Dragon and the Anti-Christ
In a previous post, I discussed about the “Secrets of Saturn” and how Saturn reflects many different aspects of many different religions, esoterica and the Holy Grail mythos. According to the ancient Greek writers such as Hesiod, Ouranos was born from Gaia, the “mother of all living,” much like Eve in Genesis. Others claim Ouranos came from the primeval god Aer or Aethyr. Ouranos is first equated with our terrestrial blue sky and is later equated with “heaven” and even later, associated with constellations. Uranus is first called “the brazen (bronze) expanse of sky.” Ouranos is also the grandfather of Cronos or Saturn and ruled over the primordial chaos and had no parentage or father. This god has many other correlations that are far too long to list here. Theo.com tells us this exactly:
OURANOS (or Uranus) was the primeval god (protogenos) of the “sky”. The Greeks imagined the sky as a solid dome of brass, decorated with stars, whose edges descended to rest upon the outermost limits of the flat earth. Ouranos was the literal sky, just as his consort Gaia was the earth.
Uranus, is “the brazen sky” is simultaneously known as a the “brazen laver” in the Jewish Temple, as we see in Exodus 30:17:
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 18 Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and HIS foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein. 19 For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat: 20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD:
Note the laver is personified as a “he”. And also note “he” only has one foot, not two. What was in the brass laver which is the “Sky Upside Down” representing the “waters from above”? In 2 Chronicles 4:6, 4:10 and 4:15, we read:
2Ch 4:6 He made also ten lavers, and put five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them: such things as they offered for the burnt offering they washed in them; but the YAM (Sea) was for the priests to wash in.
2Ch 4:10 And he set the YAM (sea) on the right side of the east end, over against the south.
2Ch 4:15 One YAM (Sea), and twelve oxen under it.
In the brazen laver which is Uranus/Ourianos/the brazen sky was the “molten sea” who is also called “Yam” or the “Leviathan”. Yam is the ancient Semitic word “sea”, which is the Canaanite god of rivers and the sea, as well as the deity of the primordial chaos. He represents the power of the tempest sea, untamed and raging. Yam was given kingship over the other gods by the other gods by the chief god El. When Yam’s rulership turned tyrannical and he possessed El’s wife Asterah, Baal actually challenged and defeated Yam in a battle but Yam lost.
The ancient Hebrews thought that the heavens was like the sea (the waters above and below). The brass laver in the Temple was between the altar and the high priest, in which they had to wash their hands in the “Leviathan” or “Yam” before one could go to the altar inside the Holy of Holies–hence the Levite Priest was also considered to be a “Leviathan” Priest. In Judaism, the first heaven is called the firmament, the vault or the “dome”. The Hebrews believed there were three heavens: 1. the terrestrial sky, 2. outer-space, and 3. the abode of the gods. The Hebrews actually believed that the sky/firmament was Uranus or Shamiym. Deuteronomy 28:23 tells us:
“And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.”
What is going on with brass? Numbers 21:9, tells us:
“And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.”
The Sea is labeled as Yam, who is the Leviathan, is in the Brass laver that represents Ouranos–however, the Ouranos isn’t the serpent but is the molten sea. The laver has his own foot, while the “sea” is held up by “12 oxen” which represents the the Zodiac or the constellation as well as the 12 tribes of Israel. The Leviathan also has many similarities with the Ouroboros, which represents the procession of the planetary cycles. The “aeons” were equated with the rule of the planets in their respective constellations or procession cycles. There are actually so many planets and before long, the procession recycles. For example, we are in the Age of Aquarius. What planet rules over Aquarius? Ouranos/Uranus does because we just went through a cycle of processions and its repeating with the first planet in procession. Thus, the “time eats itself” (Ouroboros). The Ouroboros is the procession of the gods or the “cosmocrators” through the twelve classical constellations, which are of course, the celestial archons of Gnosticism. In Revelation of St. John, the Leviathan rises up out of the Yam/Sea, and in Chapter 12, the Leviathan is depicted as having seven heads with crowns that seek to devour. In Sumerian myth, we have the Abzu, which is the primordial sea of the abyss, or the Sumerian equivalent to Khaos (Chaos), which is the very first deity in Greek myth.
“3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.”
As we know Ouranos simply means “sky” in Greek. Hesiod in Theogony (“the genealogy or birth of the gods) (126-138) tells us that Ouranos and Gaia were lovers:
Gaia first bore equal to herself starry Ouranos so that he may cover her all over like a veil, to be always the unshakable seat for the blessed gods. She bore the large mountains, pleasant haunts of the goddess Nymphs who dwell up along the woody mountains, and he produced the unplowed (?) open waters raging with swell, Pontos, without philotês. But then bedded by Ouranos, she produced deep-eddying Okeanos and and Koios and Kreios and Hyperion and Iapetos and Thea and Rheia and Themis and Mnemosyne and golden-garlanded Phoebe and lovely Tethys. And after them born last Kronos of the crooked scheme, most fearful of children, and he hated his lusty father.
According to Aristophanes in the comedy Birds (690f), both Gaia and Ouranos originated from the chaotic abyss:
At the beginning there was only Chaos, Night, dark Erebus (Darkness), and deep tartarus. Earth (Gaia), Air (Aer) and Heaven (Ouranos) had no existence. Firstly, blackwinged Night laid a germless egg in the bosom of the infinite deeps of Erebus, and from this, after the revolution of long ages, sprang the graceful Eros with his glittering golden wings, swift as the whirlwinds of the tempest. He mated in deep Tartarus with dark Chaos…
Orphic theogeny has Uranus part of the “proto-Genesis” myth being born of the “night” or “Nyx.” In Genesis 1:1-8, we see very similar ideas expressed from Hesiod’s Theogony. Keep in mind Hesiod’s text predates the Bible, and especially the book of Genesis by a few hundred years.
One might point to the power of the mind and to what extent thought might actually be able to influence reality. This brings us to the Biblical firmament that holds up the sky. While these things may seem very much unrelated, perhaps they may not be. The Biblical firmament could very well be an amplifier for thoughts that can crystallize into reality. Needless to say, this is all very far-fetched and hypothetical. In Star Trek: The Next Generation, there’s the computer generated environment in the Holodeck. The Holodeck is controlled by the Arch. Perhaps this Arch is somehow symbolical of the firmament.
Another name of the firmament is the vault of heaven. A vault is basically a kind of arch. Arches are a fairly commonly used symbol we see associated with the Royal Arch Freemasonry and other famous sites like Arc de Triomphe in Paris. I suggest that the meaning of the arch may be a very significant one: it creates physical reality. Let’s take a look at Genesis 1:
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
In other words, Genesis 1:1: might as well read, “In the beginning, the Khaos created Ouranos/Shamiym and the Gaia/Earth.” At first, God creates and heaven and earth, there already is water in the world, and then he creates light and divides it from the darkness. Note that the sun and the moon are created later. Light exists before the sun. The creation of heaven and earth essentially means the idea of the division between the spiritual and the profane. Division of the light from darkness is the creation of Yin and Yang or the binary system of 0 and 1. Although water is a physical object, it is often portrayed as a conduit between the spiritual and the physical as we see in the baptisms of John the Baptist and Jesus in the Gospels, which is an immersion into divine wisdom, the remission of sins and the anointment of salvation. The firmament is essentially the first physical object to exist and the rest of creation comes into fruition, including the land, flora and fauna (plants and animals, etc.) Perhaps God him/her/itself made the firmament as a tool to create the physical world we live in. Psalms 19 says:
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
According to the ancient Sumerian text Enuma Elish (The Babylonian Epic of Creation), Tablet I, it tells us that it was the Apsu who gave rise the demiurge, Tiamat:
1 When the heavens above did not exist,
2 And earth beneath had not come into being—
3 There was Apsû, the first in order, their begetter,
4 And demiurge Tia-mat, who gave birth to them all;
5 They had mingled their waters together
6 Before meadow-land had coalesced and reed-bed was to he found —
7 When not one of the gods had been formed
8 Or had come into being, when no destinies had been decreed,
9 The gods were created within them:
10 Lah(mu and Lah(amu were formed and came into being.
11 While they grew and increased in stature
12 Anšar and Kišar, who excelled them, were created.
The myths and stories associated with Uranus and even Uranus himself are far older than even the “Golden Age” myths and stories associated with Kornos/Saturn, and has been fused with the later figure, much later in history. Uranus begins as the “first” god of the planets in the Greek myths. In the end, he is robbed, usurped, castrated and forgotten and all of his strong attributes are taken on by Saturn and Kronos and his sons. Hesiod in Theogony (176-190) tells us further:
Great Ouranos came, bringing the night, and spread out around Gaia, desiring philotês, and was extended. His son reached out from ambush with his left hand, and in his right he held the sickle, long and serrated and the genitals of his father he quickly reaped and threw them behind his back to be carried away. But they did not flee from his hand fruitlessly. As many drops of blood spurted forth, all of them Gaia received. In the revolving years, she bore the powerful Erinyes, and great Giants, gleaming in their armor, holding long spears in their hands, and the nymphs whom they call the Ash Tree Nymphs across endless Gaia. As soon as Kronos lopped off the genitals with the sickle, they fell from the mainland into the much-surging sea, so that the sea carried them for a long time.
Uranus is also equated with the “sky” only because of the proximity with Gaia in the myth as its said Uranus would “come upon Gaia at night” by force. Gaia is only Uranus’s wife “by proxy” because Uranus raped Gaia (as some sources point to her being his mother–hence incest), hence why she wants him castrated and gets Saturn to do it! In actual Euhemerist history, kings following the “divine right” of kings tradition could take any women of the land he desired by royal decree. That’s why El, the prototype Yahweh, in the Ugarit texts, is a drunk god, who quite literally falls in his own shit:
This tale from Ugaritic concerning the god El, a precursor to the Judaic God, is well-known amongst students of Ugaritic. The contemporary summary is that El holds a party with all the gods, at which the moon disguises itself as a dog and runs about under the tables begging for scraps. El gets very drunk, has to be helped to court, and is attacked by a strange creature in his drunken stupor. El defecates and falls in his own shit. The story then concludes with what has been widely regarded as a hangover cure.
Uranus is left with a name that in English literally means, a flaming asshole! Uranus is “Ur” which means “flame” in Hebrew and “anus” which speaks for itself. Ouranos also ties with Anu, and you can see the linguistic connection The cuneiform character for “An” is also the same as “ilu,” the word for “god.” According to the Wikipedia of Anu, it reads:
Anu existed in Sumerian cosmogony as a dome that covered the flat earth; Outside of this dome was the primordial body of water known as Nammu (not to be confused with the subterranean Abzu).
In Sumerian, the designation “An” was used interchangeably with “the heavens” so that in some cases it is doubtful whether, under the term, the god An or the heavens is being denoted. The Akkadians inherited An as the god of heavens from the Sumerian as Anu-, and in Akkadian cuneiform, the DINGIR character may refer either to Anum or to the Akkadian word for god, ilu-, and consequently had two phonetic values an and il.
Even more fascinating is that there are in fact, two main competing deities in the Old Testament. Margaret Barker in the book The Great Angel: A Study of Israel’s Second Son, points out that the term “sons of God” were sometimes used for angels and sometimes used for kings or the people of Israel. There are actually two different words for God in Hebrew–El Elyon and Yahweh. The Elohim are the heavenly beings, or the angels, which are the sons of God, while the sons of Yahweh, are always humans. This indicates that Yahweh isn’t the Most High God, but rather, one of the sons of El Elyon! This seems to support the Gnostic account of creation and Eden, where the archons or fallen angels create Eden, and pull Adam and Eve from a higher spiritual dimension, into the lowest depths of matter. In the New Testament, Jesus is called the son of the Most High, that is the son of El Elyon. Luke 1:32 tells us:
He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.
Please note that Jesus is not called the “son of Yahweh,” anywhere in the New Testament. In fact, Jesus is called “Lord” himself, which is a term used for Yahweh in the Old Testament. Yahweh is presented as being the most prominent son of El Elyon. He is essentially the “chief” of the angels, who, like Lucifer in Isaiah, stole the throne for himself and becomes a jealous god of wrath. He is simply one of the sons of Elyon, who fathered children with human women as we see in Genesis 6:2-4, and 1 Enoch 6:7 and 59:2. As Barker points out, in the Qumran version of Deuteronomy 32:8-9, El Elyon divides the world up into different nations, one for each of his sons. Yahweh gets Israel, while other gods/angels get other nations. Yahweh, however, gets incredibly haughty and jealous of the other angels and becomes the most power hungry. In Daniel 10:13-14, these angels are called “princes,” where they fight against Yahweh and the archangel Michael.
13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”
These rival gods challenge Yahweh in Job 1:6:
Now there was a day when the sons of El Elyon set themselves against Yahweh and Satan came also among them.
Here, we learn that Satan is one of the other sons of El Elyon, making him Yahweh’s brother and fellow god! Yahweh asks Job in 38:7:
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? […] when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of El shouted for joy?”
The creation of the other sons of El (angels) are mentioned in Jubilees 2:2.
For on the first day He created the heavens which are above and the earth and the waters and all the spirits which serve before him -the angels of the presence, and the angels of sanctification, and the angels [of the spirit of fire and the angels] of the spirit of the winds, and the angels of the spirit of the clouds, and of darkness, and of snow and of hail and of hoar frost, and the angels of the voices and of the thunder and of the lightning, and the angels of the spirits of cold and of heat, and of winter and of spring and of autumn and of summer and of all the spirits of his creatures which are in the heavens and on the earth, (He created) the abysses and the darkness, eventide <and night>, and the light, dawn and day, which He hath prepared in the knowledge of his heart.
In other words, El Elyon is the Jewish equivalent of Ouranos, El is Kronos/Enlil/ and Yahweh is the Jewish equivalent of Zeus/Marduk. The Sumerian god Enki is more like the serpent of Genesis and Lucifer. Jesus is really the son of Ouranos, or the deity that is above and controls the dome. El Elyon also corresponds to the Sumerian Anu, as well. El Elyon is basically the “Ancient of Days.” The description of Yahweh that Ezekiel provides is that this god is bronze from the waist up and made of fire from the waist down with a rainbow surrounding him (Ezekiel 1:27-28). This matches with Ouranos’s description of being “bronze” or “brazen.” However, when you look up in the sky, it is not brazen. Interesting, no?
Astronomically speaking, Uranus is also the strangest planet in the solar system as its sitting on a 98-degree angle on its side! Scientists believe Uranus was “knocked over” via an impact that happened before Uranus settled in its now stationary orbit. In all mythologies, Saturn usurps the position of the Sun (Helios) in eminence which is associated with the highest divinity, and he also does with the first planet in the mythos, Uranus, who just so happens to be the seventh planet from the sun. So in Greek mythology, the “first god” being Uranus is left “dead” in mythos, castrated, impotent, forgotten as being “up there.”
Jesus in Matthew 14:22-33, performs a miracle of walking on water and calming the storms, which is similar to the idea of the Leviathan/Yam who traverses the brazen laver or Ouranos. Jesus essentially brings order to the chaotic waters of the sea–indicting his structural powers as the Platonic Logos as discussed in the Gospel of John’s prologue. Such an idea reminds us of Philip K Dick’s comment about this subject in his seminal essay, How to Build a Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later.
In Plato’s Timaeus, God does not create the universe, as does the Christian God; He simply finds it one day. It is in a state of total chaos. God sets to work to transform the chaos into order. That idea appeals to me, and I have adapted it to fit my own intellectual needs: What if our universe started out as not quite real, a sort of illusion, as the Hindu religion teaches, and God, out of love and kindness for us, is slowly transmuting it, slowly and secretly, into something real?
Now, flip the picture upside down and you can picture the Leviathan/Yam under the celestial sea/firmament. Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun, while Saturn is the sixth. Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun and Saturn is the sixth. In Judaism, the seventh planet is actually Saturn, because the celestial luminaries begin with the Sun as being the first body or “head” of the Solar System. The Jewish Menorah represents the Sun and the six classical planets, from Mercury to Saturn. The Middle stick represents the Sun or “Shamash.” The seventh letter in Hebrew also has phallic connotations, as it represents the erect penis or sword. More on this later…
Perhaps “the heavens” are analogous to a computer CPU or hardware, and the firmament is like a 3D printer or a projection screen. God inputs a program into the computer, pushes start and the firmament prints out or projects the physical additions to the world. In 1 Enoch 18:1, it has the following to say about the firmament:
I saw the treasuries of all the winds: I saw how He had furnished with them the whole creation and the firm foundations of the earth. 2. And I saw the corner-stone of the earth: I saw the four winds which bear [ the earth and ] the firmament of the heaven. 3. And I saw how the winds stretch out the vaults of heaven, and have their station between heaven and earth: these are the pillars of the heaven . 4. I saw the winds of heaven which turn and bring the circumference of the sun and all the stars to their setting. 5. I saw the winds on the earth carrying the clouds: I saw the paths of the angels. 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, 〈 one 〉 was 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. 9. And I saw a flaming fire. And beyond these mountains 10. is a region the end of the great earth: there the heavens were completed. 11. And I saw a deep abyss, with columns of heavenly fire, and among them I saw columns of fire fall, which were beyond measure alike towards the height and towards the depth. 12. And beyond that abyss I saw a place which had no firmament of the heaven above, and no firmly founded earth beneath it: there was no water upon it, and no birds, but it was a waste and horrible place.
Enoch saw the abyss, “a waste a horrible place”, that didn’t have the firmament above, nor earth beneath it. Perhaps there was nothing there as there was no vault or 3D printer there to create anything. In other words, this was the primordial chaos that existed before creation was kick-started in the Big Bang, which is essentially a brutal Demiurgical act.
I realize I am probably being too liberal with my interpretations of these texts and myths but thought I’d put them out there regardless. Perhaps this “vault” may be influenced on some level through the collective consciousness or will of the human race but not on the level of the God or the gods, or whatever demiurgical force used the firmament or Ouranos to create reality. This is all reminiscent of the sci-fi film Dark City, in which the main character uses his tuning powers to influence the reality of the false noirish 1950’s styled city, built on a space ship disc that looks like a “flat earth” that keeps its human hosts in a state of constant night and unreality, where the “Strangers” being alien creatures inhabiting pale dead humans have been secretly influencing them and study their subjects due to their jealousy of them containing immaterial souls and spirits. On a side note, I suppose many will accuse me of being a flat earther now, as I am not. Many of those types are insanely dogmatic about it. But let’s just go with the flow with the information presented here. So how does all of this connect to Saturn?
We already saw how Saturn hacked off Uranus’s genitals and goes missing. Before this incident, Uranus would, in essence, urinate on Gaia as the rainmaker, which gave rise to her fertility, manifesting in the form of flora and fauna. Since Uranus ruled and wore the crown, the urine was golden–hence the Golden Age! The Greek historian Plutarch in On Isis and Osiris, states that Set/Typhon steals and dismembered the corpse of his brother Osiris into fourteen pieces, only after Isis has retrieved it. Isis then finds and buries each piece of her husband’s body, with the exception of the penis, which she reconstructs with magic because the original was eaten by fish in the river. Plutarch states this is the reason the Egyptians had a taboo against eating fish.
From this idea, we can surmise that when Saturn hacks off Ouranos’s genitals, he in essence, strips his grandfather, or the “firmament” that hovers over Gaia (being the Earth) of his creative powers. Now, Saturn/Kronos has the ability to create and shape reality on his own accord, much like the Gnostic Demiurge Ialdabaoth does in the Gnostic literature. In other words, Saturn has the phallic prowess/crown/scepter or the adamantine scythe to wield with might against all of creation. And yet, he too is overthrown by his divine descendant–this time being Zeus–down into Tartarus. In Hesiod’s Theogony, we next read that Ouranos’s dismembered genitals actually gave rise to the majestic and beautiful goddess Aphrodite! This reminds us when in Genesis 2:22, God creates woman or Eve from Adam’s rib.
Around them a white foam from the immortal skin began to arise. In it, a maiden was nurtured. First, she drew near holy Kythera, and from there she arrived at Kypros surrounded by water. From within, a majestic and beautiful goddess stepped, and all around grass grew beneath her slender feet. Aphrodite [foam-born goddess and fair-wreathed Kythereia] gods and men call her because she was nurtured in foam. But they call her Kythereia because she happened upon Kythera, and Kyprogenes because she was born in much-surging Kypros, and Philommeides because she appeared out of genitals.
Genesis 19:13 tells us:
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
In Genesis 17:11, it tells us further:
And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
And finally in Exodus 13:16, it tells us:
16 And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the Lord brought us forth out of Egypt.
The circumcision of the head of the penis symbolizes the covenant between Jehovah and his slave race–humanity. It, in essence, symbolizes the castration of Ouranos by Saturn/Kronos! The top of the penis is the head, and has only “one eye” and must be circumcised because of the Glory of Jehovah. Do it or you are toast! Genesis 17:14 reads:
And the uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.
Why is this so? Because Jehovah recognizes the circumcision or self-sacrifice of the Israelites as a covenant in that they too are in a sense “castrated” much like Saturn’s grandfather. In fact, the very word “covenant” means “to cut” and “to eat/consume” in Hebrew! Circumcision was a covenant of “cutting” and “consuming”! Does that mean Jehovah was literally consuming the cut penis parts of the Israelites? A very bizarre concept indeed but it correlates to the idea that Saturn ate many of his children that could potentially become the next generation of gods. Perhaps this indicates that Saturn was trying to prevent a new reality, or the beginning of time that we exist in now, from taking place. Also, keep in mind that Satan in many medieval depictions of Hell is often illustrated with consuming the souls of the damned.
Ritual sacrifices done to the god Saturn in Rome were done in this regard, according to the Wikipedia entry on Saturn.
Sacrifices to Saturn were performed according to “Greek rite” (ritus graecus), with the head uncovered, in contrast to those of other major Roman deities, which were performed capite velato, “with the head covered.” Saturn himself, however, was represented as veiled (involutus), as for example in a wall painting from Pompeii that shows him holding a sickle and covered with a white veil.
The Holy of Holies or the Ark of the Covenant guarded by the Seraphim in the Temple of Solomon or the First Jewish Temple are also veiled from the public as well as the High Priests of Levite (Leviathan) for most of the year. Adam and Eve’s genitals were also covered by skins to cover their shame in the Garden of Eden, after they consumed the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. We are speaking here about the phallus and the creative power of God or the gods, which is mirrored in all creation–especially in humanity. In the Heliopolitan Egyptian creation myth, Atum was considered to be the first god, which is the equivalent to the Sumerian Abzu or the Greek Khaos or even the Hindu Brahman. It is said that Atum created a pair of a god and goddess, by spitting from his mouth, and also used a metaphor of masturbation and ejaculating lower divine powers! This is why there are so many landmarks and monuments with overt phallic imagery like the Washington monument or the Eiffel tower. Yahweh also does his best to hide his glory from the Israelites in Exodus 33:22:
21Then the LORD said, “Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; 22and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. 23“Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen.”…
Next, we will be heading into stranger territory. We read in 1 Samuel 18:27:
Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king’s son in law. And Saul gave him Michal his daughter to wife.
Next up in 2 Samuel 3:14, King David does something unthinkable:
And David sent messengers to Ishbosheth Saul’s son, saying, Deliver me my wife Michal, which I espoused to me for an hundred foreskins of the Philistines.
Now, let’s see–kill them first then cut off their foreskins or purchase a wife for a hundred of these foreskins? What the fucking fuck? In Leviticus 19:23, God tells his people that (yet again), they cannot eat of the fruit of the trees while being uncircumcised:
And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised : three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of.
Now, after the great war between the Olympian gods and the Titans, Gaia takes revenge by making a pact with Tartarus (the Underworld) to create a devastating monster meant to destroy Zeus and take his place and call him “Typhoeus” or Typhon, which corresponds to Set/Seth of the Egyptians. In Hesiod’s Theogony, we read:
When Zeus drove the Titans from Olympus, monstrous Gaia bore her last child Typhoeus in philotês with Tartaros through golden Aphrodite. His hands were strong (?)–corrupt line– The feet of the powerful god were weariless. From his shoulders were a hundred head of a dreadful serpent dragon, licking with dark tongues. The eyes on the monster’s ineffable heads flashed fire beneath their brows [From all the heads, as he looked, burned fire.] Voices were in all his dreadful heads, emitting sounds of all sorts, unutterable by gods. Sometimes they spoke so gods could comprehend. Sometimes they emitted the cry of a bull, unchecked in might, proud of voice, sometimes the cry of a lion having a shameless spirit, sometimes sounds like puppies, a wonder to hear, sometimes he hissed, and the lofty mountains rumbled. A unmanageable deed would have been done that day, and Typhoeos would have become lord for mortals and immortals, had not the father of men and gods keenly attended. He thundered harsh and strong, and all around, Gaia resounded awfully, and the wide Ouranos above and the sea and streams of Okeanos and Gaia’s Tartaros.
We see Typhon attack and wage war against the heavens, with trowing flaming rocks at it, while hissing and screaming and gushing with dragon like streams of fire from his mouth. The sight alone of Typhon was enough for the Olympian gods to flee with terror. But the mighty Zeus is unwavered by the hellish monster and decides to fight back, reminding us the moment Yahweh struggles against the primal sea monster, Leviathan as recorded in Job 41, Isaiah 27:1 and Psalm 74.
Beneath the god’s immortal feet as he moved ` was quivering great Olympus. Gaia was groaning. Heat from both of them gripped the violet-like sea, heat from the thunder and flash and fire from the monster and thunderbolts and winds and scorching lightning. All the earth boiled and Ouranos and the sea. Huge waves raged along the shores round and about, at the fury of the immortals, and an endless quaking arose. Hades, lording over the wasted dead men, and the Titans under Tartaros who around Kronos, trembled with the endless din and terrible battle-strife. When Zeus lifted up his might and seized his weapons, thunder, flash, and gleaming lightning, he leaped up from Olympus and smote them. All about he set fire to the dread monster’s divine heads. But when he had subdued him, flogging him with blows, Typhoeos collapsed, crippled, and monstrous Gaia was groaning. From the lightning-smote lord, a flame shot forth in the mountain glens dark and craggy as he was struck. And monstrous Gaia was burning all over with an ineffable blast and melted like tin heated beneath the skill of craftsmen in bellowed crucibles or iron, which is the strongest of all things, being subdued in the mountain glens by blazing fire, melts in the shining earth beneath Hephaestos’ hands. In this way, Gaia was melting from the flame of the blazing fire. And Zeus in terrible anger threw Typhoeus into wide Tartaros.
Greek Gods.com remarks further about this harrowing episode:
When Athena, the goddess of wisdom, accused Zeus for cowardness, he decided to confront Typhon. Armed with thunder and lightnings, he struck at the monster with a sickle and then chased him until Mount Casion, which rises over Syria.
Seeing Typhon severely wounded, Zeus engaged him in a hand-to-hand combat. But all at once,Typhon wrapped Zeus in his coils, held him firmly and wrested the sickle from him. Typhon soon left Zeus helpless by cutting the tendons from his hands and feet. Then he took Zeus to the Corycian Cave, on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, and appointed his sister Delphyne, a she-dragon that was half beast and half maiden, to guard Zeus.
However, Hermes, the son of Zeus and the goat-footed Aigipan managed to fit the tendons back into Zeus without being observed. Immediately after Zeus recovered his strength, he made a sudden descent from heaven on a chariot drawn by a winged horse. Hurling thunderbolts, he pursued Typhon strongly and when they reached the island of Sicily, Zeus threw the enormous Mount Aetna at the monster, pinning him underneath.
And so we have, Zeus who uses the sickle or scythe of Saturn against Typhon–the very weapon forged from Ouranos’s genitals! And another thing about Zeus is that his father Saturn is fooled into thinking he ate Zeus when a rock was thrown into Saturn’s mouth.
In the Gnostic text, Hypostasis of the Archons, we see the same thing happen with Sabaoth, with the help of Sophia and Zoe, supplanting and usurping Yaldabaoth’s rulership, while casting him into Tartarus, the same prison where the titans were condemned to stay in.
This ruler, by being androgynous, made himself a vast realm, an extent without limit. And he contemplated creating offspring for himself, and created for himself seven offspring, androgynous just like their parent. And he said to his offspring, “It is I who am god of the entirety.”
And Zoe (Life), the daughter of Pistis Sophia, cried out and said to him, “You are mistaken, Sakla!” – for which the alternative name is Yaltabaoth. She breathed into his face, and her breath became a fiery angel for her; and that angel bound Yaldabaoth and cast him down into Tartaros below the abyss.
Now when his offspring Sabaoth saw the force of that angel, he repented and condemned his father and his mother, matter. He loathed her, but he sang songs of praise up to Sophia and her daughter Zoe. And Sophia and Zoe caught him up and gave him charge of the seventh heaven, below the veil between above and below. And he is called ‘God of the forces, Sabaoth’, since he is up above the forces of chaos, for Sophia established him.
Revelation 13:3-4 tells us:
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?
And Revelation 14:14 tells us that the Son of Man’s second coming will be displayed with a golden crown and a sharp sickle!
And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
Matthew 24:30 might as well read:
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of [Saturn] in heaven [The Crown/Bow/Phallus/Penis] and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of [Saturn] coming in the clouds of [Ouranos] with power and great glory.
I am not sure what to make of all this information. Perhaps what all these ancient myths are pointing to is that according to what the ancients thought, that there were several ancient gods and powers that held great authority and sway over the world, and are all vying for power over reality itself. The line of usurped succession being Ouranos, Kronos and finally, Zeus underscores this fact. I do think that these pagan deities overlap, though. They’re too similar to be coincidental. I think we may be dealing with the same group of deities manifested in different forms to various peoples and cultures throughout history. From the looks of it, Yahweh is simply another one of these beings, part of the same ancient pantheon of deities from which all these pagan deities ultimately derive. He may or may not be higher up in the chain of being, but I still don’t consider him anywhere near the absolute god. It is no secret that these same pagan gods are reduced to mere archons, fallen angels, principalities and powers in the post-Christian and proto-Gnostic worldview as we see in Ephesians 6:12:
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 2:1-3, Paul tells us also that the prince of the power of the air, which the same as the Greek primeval god/Titan Aer, which is a lower manifestation of the goddess Titan, Khaos:
And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
Paul clearly also equates outward circumcision of the foreskin with being bereft of Christ in Galatians 5:2:
Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
Was Paul and the later Gnostikoi reacting against the traditional Roman/Greek/Jew myths with their own revelations of a higher god beyond the dome? It is clear that Kronos/Jehovah is not exactly a benevolent deity and is always seeking to expand his dominance over the face of the world with his constant demands of sacrifice to him and in effect steal the creative power of Ouranos. Genesis tells us that this same God created the “heavens and the earth,” making him higher than Ouranos and Gaia. And yet, the Orthodox narrative has Yahweh sending his own Son (the Messiah) to be brutally tortured and executed as a convict as well as a blood atonement for the sins of the world. Kronos created the prison mankind find themselves in, and cut mankind off from everything outside, being the dome or Ouranos that covers over the world. Kronos cut off the phallus of Ouranos, and Yahweh demands his followers cut off the foreskin of their penises–symbolizing the covenant between the gods and mortals in that the Jews and the rest of the human race submit to their influence. They are essentially prison wardens, and the chief archons guarding as Paul puts it, the “aion of the kosmos,” which is essentially a reference to Saturn. They feed off of their followers like vampires or parasites–because without the help, belief, and sacrifices of humanity, the gods might as well not even exist and dissolve back into primordial chaos! Perhaps this is what the Gospel of Philip is telling us:
That is the way it is in the world – men make gods and worship their creation. It would be fitting for the gods to worship men!
I realize how insane, fantastic and delusional how all of this might sound to a secular humanist/atheist but I’m not here to pander to Dawkins/militant atheist types. In a general sense, the difference between pagan religions and Gnosis, though, is that the pagan religions were very naturalistic and animistic. They revered and worshiped nature, contrary to despising it. Gnosticism, in that sense, is kind of inverted paganism. It acknowledges the existence of these pagan deities, and their involvement in the creation of the world, but deems them evil/imperfect and to be avoided. That is not to say that many Gnostic sects like the Naasenes and Ophites often referred to many of the pagan mysteries in their exegesis and rituals, as church fathers like Hippolytus were hell-bent on emphasizing this fact. The famous Ophite Bowl also has many references to many pagan Orphic powers and deities, as well. The idea of creating and shaping one’s reality to your will is something that is worth exploring further in future posts. Anyway, I think I’ve gone long enough so here are just some thoughts I have on all this.
“They are dismantling the sleeping middle class. More and more people are becoming poor. We are their cattle. We are being bred for slavery.” – Some Bearded Fat Guy from They Live!
I recently re-watched the campy cult classic They Live! the other day. In the movie, an unemployed George Nada (Roddy Pipper) travels to Los Angeles during an economic depression, looking for work and happens to stumble upon a small, covert fifth-column type of rebellion and their special made “sunglasses” that lets people “see” the truth past the veil. This “veil” or “signal” rather blinds the human populace to the facade that a world-wide conspiracy (or as conspiracy theorists call “The New World Order”) have propped up through the media moguls and their subliminal propaganda campaigns (Obey, Submit, No Imagination, Conform, Sleep) and control that the Power Elite have embedded into nearly every societal facet (money, politics, advertisements especially, the police, military, religion, etc).
Of course as it turns out, the men behind the “Power Elite” are in fact quite literally zombie/corpse, “formaldehyde-faced” looking aliens that have their tentacled influence throughout society and have lulled the human populace into a comatose and entranced like state of rampant consumerism and materialism. All the while, the world around them crumbles and falls, draining their natural resources until waste and ruin remains. Far-fetched huh? Well, you don’t have to be a super-whiz to see there are strong parallels between the film and current events. Except for maybe the alien part? Maybe.
There’s a great article on Dangerous Minds that explores these same themes. One specific excerpt jumped out at me:
“It’s been quite a scam: the Savior State borrows immense sums from future taxpayers to bribe the current crop of citizenry, and these same citizenry pay the rising interest on that growing debt via their taxes. In other words, the debt-serfs pay for the bribes that keep them complicit.”
Well, that’s if you’re lucky! Do you think that the relatively poor rely upon Jesus Christ’s words about it being harder for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle? They perhaps feel sorry for the Koch brothers? Misplaced compassion? Paying taxes isn’t all bad and might be better directed to the Power Elite, but of course their servants in the Republican GOP (and Washington in general really) work day and night with utter dedication for this to not happen. All sorts of ham-fisted lunatics and fanatics have taken over the Republican Party (as if they were sane to begin with). Their mantra is quite simple really: cut taxes for the rich, and the poor can eat the last few crumbs falling off the end of rich men’s generosity. The fact that the matter is, corporate America and their Gringotts goblins on Wall Street, are booming. The “trickle-down” economy of course doesn’t actually trickle down, rather it trickles up! Never-mind the fact that the income distribution is so disproportionate, that it’s more accurate to call ourselves a kleptocracy than a democracy, a banana republic rather than a free republic.
That’s how capitalism works, like it or not. It already has named winners, everyone else has to work their butt off for little or nothing. Of course the corporate state isn’t going to hire you, why would they? It’s the LAST thing they have on their minds. Rather, they’re thinking creative ways on how to avoid paying ZERO taxes and raking in more profits. I suppose the archons must have their pets, too.
Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” Matthew 19:21
“Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24
Of course, Jesus’ proclamation to give to the poor and needy is a complete anathema to the Republican “Family Values” and their slave masters. In fact, the recipe that Jesus gives to commune with the divine is so alien to them and the “American Way” that its any wonder any of them call themselves Christian. I guess Jesus wasn’t very clear with his analogy of the rich man and the camel. If you’re content in being a rich and gluttonous “Randroid” sociopath and let the poor get their reward in the afterlife, you’re going to hang out with Satan and roast in hell for all eternity.
Most people just cower, inside, in fear, and suck up to the Power Elite while their little world and quality of life crumbles, and they are herded like cattle into the primordial swamp. No wonder conservatives revile you as you bow and scrape before them while they’re pissing on you.
