Turn! Turn! Turn! (wheels within wheels part two)

Hi folks!

Before we jump straight into this blog…if you have little to no knowledge of the zodiac and its signs/the seven planets……and the four elements……please read the first blogs to give some background as to how this blog came about

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/the-bible-and-the-zodiac/

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/the-hidden-knowledge/

Again…before this blog gets underway…I said in the previous “wheels within wheels ” blog you can get a lot of bible stories from looking at the decans of the zodiac…the decans being the three ten-degree sections of each sign of the zodiac (each sign takes up 30 degrees of the 360 degree circle of the zodiac)

Can you remember the three decans of Cancer from the last blog?

Cancer decans are…..Ursa Minor(the little bear),Ursa Major(the great bear),Argo(the ship)

the-gospel-in-the-stars-51-638
notice the “lesser” and “greater” sheepfolds also? …..if you read the gospels…those decans might make you think of some gospel stories about a sheepfold

 

Isn’t it another coincidence that argo is a….ship!…..ARK!

Also we have two animals…the great bear and little bear (ursa major and ursa minor)

Again….coincidence?……an ark and two animals?

add to that coincidence the fact that cancer is a WATER sign…(the flood)

http://www.astrology.com.tr/water-signs.asp

so now we have water,an ark and two animals……

anything else?

well…we actually have more animals connected to cancer……in the actual constellation of cancer we have “Asellus Borealis” and “Asellus Australis”….the two donkeys!..another two animals to go in the argo!

image008

Now we have two bears and two donkeys next to the argo…ARK!

(can you also see the story of the Jason and the argo-nauts in the story…as they go looking for the golden fleece (the sun in aries the ram)…i.e the start of spring bringing back the sun from the months of darkness

And funnily enough if you take the first letter of all the months after the summer solstice has been and gone….(J)uly,(A)ugust,(S)eptember,(O)ctober,(N)ovember….you get……JASON!

Cancer is the top of the “mountain” of the zodiac….it is the acme…the heights…the pinnacle…the highest the sun will get to in the year…the longest day is in cancer

and doesn’t the ark land on a mountain?

The crab is the symbol of cancer…in Egypt the scarab beetle was the symbol of cancer

The tarot card that corresponds to the sign of cancer is “the chariot”

http://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-card-meanings/major-arcana/chariot/

see if you can find further connections for yourself,with the sign of cancer…its decans and stars in its constellations…..and neighbouring constellations also….and also “the chariot” tarot card….it will take effort…but it is very rewarding when you see all the connections for yourself

for instance…the crab has a suit of armour…a shell…the scarab has “armour” also

and on the chariot tarot card we have someone in a suit of armour

thoth-chariot
notice also…the four living creatures…bull,eagle,man and lion…and funnily enough…a crab above his head…the sign of cancer

 

It all means something!….see if you can find anything else for yourself

“When the pupil is ready the teacher will appear”…..YOU are both the student…AND the teacher!

however….back to this blog talking about another “wheel”

The wheel we are concerned with this time is the wheel of the zodiac

The glorious twelve!

The cycle of the twelve

The twelve signs of the zodiac!

Turn! Turn! Turn! (to Everything There Is a Season)

Pete Seeger wrote the above song (made famous by The Byrds)……and it is true…everything does have it’s season

However did you know that Pete Seeger got the lyrics to the song from the bible?

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

notice the polarities?

born/die…plant/reap

weep/laugh…break down/build up

war/peace….tear apart/sew together

kill/heal…..cast away/gather

 

The Kybalion (do not get confused with Kabbalah..they are different) has seven principles all concerned with natural concepts…..they are as follows

1/The principle of mentalism

“The Universe is Mental–held in the Mind of THE
ALL.”–The Kybalion.

(The principle of Mentalism embodies the idea that “All is Mind,the universe is mental”)

2/The principle of correspondence

“As above, so below; as below, so above.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Correspondence embodies the idea that there is always a correspondence between the laws of phenomena of the various “planes” of being and life)

or another way of saying it…“As above so below”

3/The principle of vibration

“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything
vibrates.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Vibration embodies the idea that motion is manifest in everything in the Universe, that nothing rests, and everything moves, vibrates, and circles.)

4/The principle of polarity

“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything
has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same;
opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree;
extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes
may be reconciled.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Polarity embodies the idea that everything is dual, everything has two poles, and everything has its opposite.)

everything has two poles?….hmmm

RWS_Tarot_02_High_Priestess

THE “J” and “B” on the card above stand for Jachin and Boaz

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

it means the two polarities…the male…Jachin

and the female…Boaz

jachinboaz3

In Kaballah the two pillars are called the pillar of mercy (male)

and the pillar of severity (female)

however…wouldn’t you think that the pillar of mercy should be a feminine trait?

and should not the pillar of severity be a masculine trait?

you would think so……however…here we have the fourness again….the masculine contains the feminine

and the feminine contains the masculine…..just like the yin/yang has the fourness…as does the compass and square…see previous blogs for more info on this

5/The Principle of Rhythm

(The Principle of Rhythm embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion, a to and fro, a flow and inflow, a swing backward and forward, a pendulum-like movement.)

or as the Kybalion also says….“everything has it’s tides” everything has a “toing and froing”

the tide comes in…and it goes out…….the summer must eventually give way to winter and vice versa

“Everything flows out and in; everything has its tides;
all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests
in everything; the measure of the swing to the right,
is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm
compensates”–The Kybalion.

6/the principle of cause and effect

(The Principle of Cause and Effect explains that there is a cause for every effect, and an effect for every cause.)

It also states that there is no such thing as chance, that chance is merely a term indicating extant causes not recognized or perceived.

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause;
everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a
    name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of
causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”–The Kybalion.

for instance the “chance” of throwing a six on the dice every time…….if you knew angles and speed (the unrecognized law) to throw the dice to a microscopic extent..you could throw a six every time…it wouldn’t be chance

7/the principle of gender

“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine
and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all
planes.”–The Kybalion.

(The Principle of Gender embodies the idea that gender is manifested in everything.)

Gender is manifested as the Masculine and Feminine principles, and manifests itself on all planes.

The kybalion also tells us that there are those among us who understand these principles and can use the laws to gain advantage over others who do not understand the concepts and are tossed about by these laws rather than using them to their own advantage

you can get a free audiobook of the kybalion at the link below….I would highly recommend it….it furthered my understanding of these concepts by leaps and boundshttp://thoughtaudio.com/titlelist/TA0094-Kybalion/index.html

and you can also download it and put it on your mp3 player…for free!

Back to the twelve signs now

The zodiac is a wheel that turns…..it has its twelve signs and each comes in its turn…and gives way to the next in turn

The poet Manilius…celebrated in the days of Augustus Caesar,wrote this about the twelve signs

“Now Constellations, Muse, and signs rehearse,
In order, let them sparkle in thy verse.
Those which obliquely round the burning Zone,
And bear the Summer and the Winter Sun,
Those first: then those which roll a different way
From West: nor Heaven’s Diurnal whirl obey:
Which Nights serene disclose, and which create
The steady Rules, and fix the Laws of Fate.

First Aries, glorious in his Golden Wool,
Looks back and wonders at the mighty Bull,
Whose back-parts first appear: He bending lies
With Threat’ning Head, and calls the Twins to rise,
They clasp for fear, and mutually embrace;
And next the Twins with an unsteady pace
Bright Cancer rolls: then Leo shakes his mane:
And following Virgo calms his rage again:
Then Day and Night weigh’d in Libra’s Scales,
Equal awhile, at last the Night prevails,
And longer grown the heavier scale inclines
And draws bright Scorpius from the Winter signs:
Him Centaur follows with an aiming Eye
His Bow full drawn and ready to let fly:
Next narrow Horns the twisted Caper shows,
And from Aquarius’ Urn a Flood o’erflows.
Near their loved Waves cold Pisces take their seat,
With Aries join and make the round complete.”

Occult literature tells that we can find the twelve signs of the zodiac in the “blessing of Jacob”

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

This occurs in Genesis chapter 49…where Jacob is on his deathbed and gathers his sons to give each of them a blessing

Maitre_Jacob_Blessing_his_Sons
Jacob blessing his sons

The first son to get his blessing is Reuben in chapter Genesis 49:3,4

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

at the end of verse four Jacob is alluding to Reuben sleeping with Jacobs concubine Bilhah

Genesis 35:22

“While Israel was living in that region, Reuben went in and slept with his father’s concubine Bilhah, and Israel (Jacob) heard of it.”

However did you also notice that Jacob said that Reuben was as unstable as water?

and in the zodiac the only sign containing water is Aquarius…in fact the symbol of Aquarius looks like this

aquarius-labelnotice the waves?……the unstable water

1/Reuben represents Aquarius!

The next blessing is bestowed on two brothers at once….unusual….why two?

Genesis 49:5-7

“Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel”

well there is one sign of the zodiac that has two brothers in it….Gemini

86cfd2333cd6c91c95eb7391b136b007
the twins of gemini

 

What two brothers does Gemini contain?…Castor and Pollux..the Dioscuri…the polydeuces

and isn’t it strange that both sets of brothers have a similar story?

The story involves revenge for their sister…and slaughter of the men of a city

in the case of Simeon and Levi it is the rape of their sister Dinah by Shechem

and in the story of Castor and Pollux it is the rape of their sister Helen

and the slaughtering of a city in revenge

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=-wo9FDUhLwUC&pg=PA217&lpg=PA217&dq=simeon+levi+castor+pollux+dinah+helen&source=bl&ots=uxCuhD7nnt&sig=XUWj9_Y9xSc6_Zv1ZQYxb1g3x-M&hl=en&sa=X&ei=YGBXVZu_E8-R7Aa34IDYCQ&ved=0CCQQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=simeon%20levi%20castor%20pollux%20dinah%20helen&f=false

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=aZdTRCHSN2gC&pg=PA20&dq=castor+pollux+destroyed+attica&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCkQ6AEwAWoVChMIqICCw7THxwIVsW7bCh0tpQHZ#v=onepage&q=castor%20pollux%20destroyed%20attica&f=false

and did you notice Jacob also says…”I will divide them”

and in the myth of Castor and Pollux weren’t they divided?

Castor was killed and became a mortal in Hades and Pollux remained immortal

2/Simeon and Levi are the brothers representing Gemini

Next brother is Judah…..Genesis 49:8,9

Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

Judah is compared to a lions whelp

now what sign of the zodiac contains a lion?

Leo is the sign of the lion…Leo (july-august) is the hottest part of the year in the northern hemisphere…the sun with its long rays……the lion with its mane

eclion

lion-of-the-tribe-of-judah

just a coincidence?

3/Judah is Leo

Next Zebulun at Genesis 49:13

Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.”

Of all the animals in the zodiac…which would dwell at the haven of the sea?

There are possibly two…the two fish of Pisces…..and the crab of cancer….however…notice it says “He” not “They”

There is only one….the Crab……Cancer…the home of the crab is usually close to the shore…the haven of ships

and cancer is also a genus of crabs!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cancer_%28genus%29

cancer

4/Zebulun is Cancer

Next Issachar at Genesis 49:14,15

14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

the name Issachar means “hireling” or “servant”

The ass or ox is the servant of man…both are “beasts of burden” that pull things in helping the labour of man

and Taurus is an earth sign……Taurus arrives at the time of year for plowing and planting and those beasts of burden help with that work

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=-wo9FDUhLwUC&pg=PA216&dq=light+of+egypt+%22taurus,on+the+esoteric+planisphere,is+occupied+by+issachar,which+means+hireling+or+servant%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=SmBYVZu_KoH3UszcgZAE&ved=0CCoQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=light%20of%20egypt%20%22taurus%2Con%20the%20esoteric%20planisphere%2Cis%20occupied%20by%20issachar%2Cwhich%20means%20hireling%20or%20servant%22&f=false

5/Issachar represents Taurus

Genesis 49:16

16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

If you have read any of the previous blogs …you will know the sign of Libra the scales is connected to law,courts and judgment

in fact you see the set of scales connected with courts…the scales of justice

Scales-of-Justice-01

Dan represents Libra…..in fact all of the autumn signs get a mention in connection with Dan….starting with Libra the judge/law/justice

just to recap the three autumn signs are respectively…Libra,Scorpio,Sagittarius

libra-scorpio-sagittarius-zodiac-sign-horoscope-stars-circle-constellations-set-three-signs-designer-38959876

scorpio can be represented by a serpent as well as a scorpion and an eagle

http://www.edgemagazine.net/2009/11/scorpio/

and Sagittarius is a horse and rider……

sagittariusand isn’t it strange that those three in a row are mentioned in those verses

16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

6/Dan is Libra the judge

Next we have Gad at Genesis 49 verse 19

19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last

Gad is overcome by a troop (or little army)

what signs are connected with armies and troops?…….the answer is those signs connected with mars…..and there are only two….Scorpio and Aries…Scorpio is ruled by mars as is Aries

Scorpio is connected with generation and the sexual organs…sensual delights

and this is what is meant by being overcome with a troop…this is the fall of man through sex…the little troop according to esoteric literature is the little army of sperm

dan scorpio 001
the “seminal fluids” are connected with “the troop” also

 

7/Gad is Scorpio

Next we have Asher in verse 20 of Genesis 49

20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

Again,if you have been following the blog….and joining the dots on your own…you will know the house of bread is Virgo….you will see the connection in my blog about “the eternal virgin”….Virgo holds an ear of wheat….Virgo is when the harvest begins…..in the human body Virgo corresponds to the stomach….”the bread basket”

5331039_298x343

s-l1000
He He…you get the point though

 

da_zodiac___virgo_by_yukimiyasawa-d38ffse
again…notice the ear of wheat

 

what about when the verse says “he shall yield royal dainties”….well didn’t the king “Jesus” come from Bethlehem?…and doesn’t Bethlehem mean…”house of bread?”

see the first paragraph of the wiki page below

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

__house-of-bread-copy

11.14.Week5Header-1024x441

8/Asher is Virgo

Next…Naphtali….Genesis 49:21

21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

Next we have Naphtali…what sign does he represent?

notice he is called a hind?….a hind is a deer….a climbing animal!….as is a goat…what time of the year do we usually see deer in cards and tales?

SantaDeer

At Christmas!….Christmas is in the sign of Capricorn….also…..in the picture below we will see summer represented by a lion…and winter by a deer

tumblr_manx5dX2sc1rzhtlmo1_1280
on the far right….notice the DEER representing the winter part of the cycle…the feminine part of the cycle of the year

Naphtali means “my struggle” and this is when the light returns (the daylight starts increasing again…light struggling with the darkness….in the bible this is represented by “the slaughter of the innocents” by Herod) and little Jesus being taken into Egypt to hide from Herod’s wrath…

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

or in revelation…into the wilderness to hide from the wild beast

it is also represented in the old testament by Moses struggling with Pharaoh to set his people free…(which Pharaoh does eventually at Aries…..symbolized by the lambs blood on the door lintels of the Israelites)

Both Herod and Pharaoh represent the darkness of winter…and the weak but ever strengthening sun is represented by Jesus and Moses….and they struggle for dominion

it is the yearly natural struggle between light and dark

in the lion king it is the struggle between scar and little simba…(the weak sun…no mane)

and it also says in the bible verse above…he giveth goodly words…and we do too at Christmas

goodwill-to-all-men
the goodly words we give at christmas time…in capricorn represented as naphtali in the blessing of jacob

9/Naphtali is Capricorn

Next Genesis 49:22-26

22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:

23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

24 But HIS BOW abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel)

25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

The “archers that hated Joseph” were his jealous brothers who sold him into slavery

You might also notice that this parallels the story of Saul hating David and throwing a spear at him

1st Samuel 19:9,10

“Now there was an evil spirit from the LORD on Saul as he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand, and David was playing the harp with his hand

Saul tried to pin him to the wall with his spear, but David eluded him as Saul drove the spear into the wall.”

(Sagittarius is a centaur…and you will see the centaur either with a bow or a spear…and it does mention a bow in the bible verse above)

The only sign of the zodiac with a bow is Sagittarius…..just a coincidence?

 

98d198d0b14cfb6fe920cad66ae87065sagittariusTo be precise Sagittarius is the centaur “Chiron”…and again….Chiron is wounded by an arrow fired by Hercules….I am sure you will see the parallels with the Jacob’s blessing of Joseph above in the myth of Chiron

http://www.comfychair.org/~cmbell/myth/sagittarius.html

You will also see the parallels with Joseph,David and Chiron in the story of Hercules and one of his twelve labours…….that of fighting the Nemean lion

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

In Genesis 49:24 it also talks about a shepherd..and that alludes to the sign of Aries

24 But his BOW abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel)

now the amazing thing about all these myths when you put them together…they are talking about the element “FIRE”….why?

the fiery triplicity of the zodiac are the following….Aries(shepherd),Sagittarius(bow,centaur,chiron) and finally Leo (the Nemean lion and Hercules fighting it with his bow)

http://astrology.about.com/od/foundations/p/FireElement.htm

Hercules first labour contains all three of the fiery signs actually

Hercules fires his bow at the lion……(Sagittarius and Leo)….however there is also a ram (Aries) in the story

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemean_lion#The_First_Labour_of_Hercules

In the above page it says the following

“he (Hercules) met Molorchos, a shepherd who had lost his son to the lion, saying that if he came back within 30 days, a ram would be sacrificed

each of the signs of the zodiac take up 30 degrees of the zodiac also…..and that corresponds to the “30 days”

10/Joseph is Sagittarius

Next we have Benjamin (meaning “son of the right side”)

The right side is the favoured side….the East where the sun rises each day

Genesis 49:27

“Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.”

what planet and sign is the wolf connected to?

well for one thing…the planet mars is connected to the wolf…see the first paragraph in the page below

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_%28mythology%29#Sacred_animals

and mars is where the month “march” comes from

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March#Origin

and March is when the sign of Aries arrives

notice in the bible verse above it also talks about “devouring the prey?”

sheep are among the prey of wolves

Mars rules Aries

Mars is connected to wolves and Aries is connected to sheep

the bible connects the two also

Matthew 7:15

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”

remember false prophets arrive just as the Christ arrives…and the arrival of the light is at dawn…..dawn is connected to Aries…the dawn of the year is in the spring equinox……Aries

“Wolf in sheep’s clothing” is a hidden symbol of Aries

a-wolf-in-sheeps-clothing
Aries is connected with both wolves and sheep

the verse above also says “Benjamin(Aries) shall “divide the spoils”

And Aries does divide the spoils…the spring equinox separates the winter from the spring…the darkness from the light……the daylight becomes longer then the nightime…they divide

again…Mars rules Aries

11/Benjamin is Aries

 

and the blessings of Jacob stop there

28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

Strangely there seem to be only 11 signs mentioned in that blessing don’t there?

We seem to be missing one of the twelve signs…and that sign is Pisces..the two fish

However…..this matter can be resolved

Let’s go back a chapter to Genesis 48:5,6 where Jacob is talking to Joseph

Now your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, are mine; Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine, as Reuben and Simeon are. “But your offspring that have been born after them shall be yours; they shall be called by the names of their brothers in their inheritance.…

Jacob says to Joseph…”your two sons are mine”…..the two sons belong to Jacob…….and the verse goes on to say…any born after those two belong to Joseph!

In the above verse Jacob claims Ephraim and Manasseh as his own…and those two fit neatly just like a jigsaw into the sign of Pisces…the two fish

why?…..well let’s go forward to Genesis 48:16

“the Angel who has delivered me from all harm –may he bless these boys. May they be called by my name and the names of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they increase greatly on the earth.”

the word “increase” is “dagah” in hebrew

http://biblehub.com/lexicon/genesis/48-16.htm

“and let them grow
dagah  (daw-gaw’)
to move rapidly; to spawn, i.e. become numerous — grow.

and the word “dagah”….also means “fish”

http://biblehub.com/hebrew/1710.htm

Fish are known to breed/multiply like crazy

Do you remember another famous account of growth or multiplication with fish?….Jesus feeding the multitude with …how many fish?…..Two fish…again the sign of pisces…because Jesus was the messiah for the Piscean age

screen-capture-59

piscesThe two brothers Ephraim and Manasseh are the two fish of Pisces!

12/Ephraim and Manasseh represent Pisces!

Rembrandt_-_Jacob_Blessing_the_Children_of_Joseph_-_WGA19117
Rembrandt painting of Jacob blessing Ephraim and Manasseh (pisces)

And that gives us the final piece of the jigsaw…the twelve signs of the zodiac in the blessing of Jacob!

The next blog will be about the sevens

 

If you managed to get through all that…..thanks for reading!

Wheels Within Wheels

Ezekiel 1:16

King James Bible
The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

Hopefully these next few blogs will explain why the numbers three,four,seven and twelve are all throughout the bible….and what they may represent

And also show that there may be more to the bible than there seems to be on a surface reading!

When I was part of Jehovah’s Witnesses we took great pride in being apart from most of the other Christian religions in that we did not worship God as a trinity….we worshipped the one true God Jehovah!…however when I “mentally” left the witnesses and started thinking outside the box of beliefs that imprisoned my mind..I could see that the bible said Jesus was a God also…..so they really believe in two gods

I asked the elders who came to visit and “encourage” me when I was exiting the religion whether Jesus was a god……they said he was…..I then asked if he was a true god….again they said yes…..then I told them they had a problem…because the bible says there is only one true god.

However now I’m away from religion altogether I have a better understanding of what the trinity is…..and again it’s all about cosmic functions and the cycles of nature

The worship of the trinity is widespread and goes back into ancient times

In Babylon the trinity consisted of Nimrod,Semiramis and Tammuz

babylon-trinity

In Egypt we have Osiris/Isis/Horus

trinity-egyptian-in-the-louvre

In Mexico and central mexico the triad of Tohil,Awilix and Jacawitz were worshipped

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

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

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

In Hinduism there is the trimurti…..Brahma the creator/Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer

Trimurti

In the northern regions we have Odin,Thor and Freya

from left to right we have the one eyed Odin,Thor (with his hammer in his right hand) and Freya who has an ear of corn in her right hand (see my previous blogs for more on the woman holding the corn/wheat)

In fact as said previously….the expression of the trinity is spread far and wide

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_deity#List_of_triple_deities

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

Christianity expresses the trinity through the father……the son and the holy spirit

63d979ea9cee09b691b2e957e1466ab6

The triangle is also a symbol of the trinity

Trinity-Is-IsNot
those who have read my blog on sex and religion will perhaps have noticed that this triangle (the blade /the upright male triangle) is in a circle……and what it really represents

Trinity_triangle_(Shield_of_Trinity_diagram)_1896

And we also have the triquetra

triquetra1

and the triquetra in a circle…….same symbolism as the triangle in the circle

images

same symbolism as the fleur de lys…the three in a band or circle

fleur-de-lys_500kabbalah has its trinity…..the supernal triad of Kether which means crown,Chokmah which means wisdom…and Binah which is understanding

http://www.universalkabbalah.net/SupernalTriad

(in proverbs it talks about seeking wisdom and understanding)

these form the top three of the ten sephiroth in the tree of life and the highest of the four worlds of kabbalah called atziluth

8574423
again….notice it forms an upright triangle…also notice the male (chokmah) and female (binah) emanate from the one…kether…….the crown

Tree_of_Life_Diagram_with_names

the four worlds of kabbalah are as follows

atziluth

briah

yetzirah (you get the sepher yetzirah from this emanation)

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

and finally….assiah

four-worlds-color

lon milo duquette gives a wonderful talk on what those worlds mean and a basic understanding of kabbalah…I would urge you to have a watch if you want to further your understanding of this fascinating topic

you may have noticed there is another “trinity” on the tree of life

these are the three pillars

the pillar of mercy(male)

the pillar of severity(female)

and the middle pillar of consciousness….the narrow path of the bible

christianrosencreutz-color

freemasonry has three pillars also…..why?….because they are all talking about the same thing….they all understand this hidden knowledge

http://www.masonicdictionary.com/pillars.html

Bronx-Zoo-Three-Pillars-of-Wisdom-Masonic-Tracing-Board

again…notice in the above freemasonic tracing board the sun…male…golden

the moon….female…….silver

and the all seeing eye in the middle

this represents in our brain,the left and right hemispheres

and the “all seeing eye” symbolizes the balanced middle view,the “keep your eye single” it speaks about in the scriptures

“The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. The light of thy body is thy eye. If thy eye be single, thy whole body shall be lightsome. The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”

Matthew 6:22

in our bodies the right side is the male side…dexter

the left side is the female side….sinister

the occult is known to be “sinister” (left handed)…not a lot of people want to look at it…….whereas religion is the right hand path….

exoteric religion is the right hand path…dexter

esoteric (hidden) teachings are the left hand path…sinister

to get an informed viewpoint of anything,you need to get both sides of the argument…..weigh them up to come to a decision

it is important to see both sides to be balanced

you can only understand the deep things of the bible by first reading the text and then digging to find out what is really being said underneath

this is also what the bible means by this scripture in Proverbs 2 verses 3-5

“For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; 4If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures; 5Then you will discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God.…”

notice it says “her”…..these are the “feminine” teachings….the dark teachings…the occult/hidden teachings

and if you’ve read all my previous blogs you will see the “feminine” equates with winter/night/darkness/earth/water

(you find pearls in water….in the deep….do you not…and the scriptures talk about finding the “pearl of great price”)

Matthew 13:45,46

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, 46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

also…to find gems…”hidden treasures” as proverbs states above..you usually have to dig into the dirt/earth…the darkness…this means looking at the occult,hidden teachings

remember “occult” merely means “hidden” and the scripture says to look for “hidden”…”occult” treasures

when you start to grasp the real teachings they fill you with light/enlightenment….a renaissance in your thinking….a rebirth…..a “born again” experience

you come to life….you are resurrected from among the dead

however as I stated……people are usually frightened off from going near occult teachings due to cultural conditioning…and remain in the “dark”….otherwise known as ignorance

the left hand path of occult knowledge is “black” magic….connected to the female/night/winter/water

and the right hand path is known as “white” magic..connected to the male force/day/summer/fire

in our body…our spinal column is the middle pillar

in our brains we also have two hemispheres

again left hemisphere and right hemisphere

and the middle pillar is the corpus callosum which connects the two hemispheres

http://brainmadesimple.com/corpus-callosum.html

also the medulla oblongata is part of the middle pillar

http://brainmadesimple.com/medulla-oblongata.html

when the two hemispheres/poles of the brain (male and female)work together to bring to birth thought and send it down the middle pillar to bring about action

interestingly look again at the egyptian picture of the trinity again….is it explaining that process to us?

the two poles….like an anode and the cathode or the positive and negative on a battery

trinity-egyptian-in-the-louvre

in the “Creation of Adam” on the sistine chapel ceiling painted by Michelangelo

could God really be a representation of our brain…some scholars think it may be

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Creation_of_Adam#Analysis

i-8f3e98954abf5fe1ae31ef7866873835-paluzzisistine

the “heavens” or “God” represents our thoughts (the non-material) which in turn bring about actions (Adam) in the material world

every thing made around about us came from the world of thought (the heavens) before it manifests on this earth…again watch the lon milo duquette video above for a detailed description

the trinity is also the cycle of everything on this earth

for example…US

We are born…..created…we pop into existence….brahma (the creator) is the representation of this part of the three part cycle

Then we exist on this earth….vishnu is the preserver….we live our life…existence

Then shiva/saturn/the grim reaper/satan/the destroyer comes along and wipes us out of this existence

Yet those three phases make the one life…..three in one…a trinity

The jewish religion has the three patriarchs

Abraham…Isaac and jacob

When rendering worship to their god they would say things three times holy,holy,holy is the lord

Isaiah 6:3

New International Version
And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”

In the zodiac this trinity is expressed in a few ways

cardinal signs….fixed signs….mutable signs

Cardinal signs…again akin to Brahma or creator….as stated previously cardinal signs are the zodiac signs which bring each of the four seasons into being

the four cardinal signs are

Aries…..Cancer….Libra…..Capricorn

Aries (fire sign) starts at the spring equinox……starts three months of spring

Cancer(water sign) is at the summer solstice…..starts three months of summer….(hence tropic of cancer)

Libra(air sign) is at the autumnal equinox…..starts three months of autumn

Capricorn(earth sign) is at the winter solstice…it starts the three months of winter

Then we have the fixed signs when each season is firmly established…bang in the middle of spring/summer/autumn/winter…those are the four fixed signs that Ezekiel saw in his vision

Aquarius…the man

Taurus….the bull

Leo………..the lion

Scorpio….the eagle

these signs correspond to vishnu..the preserver…the establisher

and the mutable signs where the old season is destroyed to make way for the new season…..this corresponds to shiva the destroyer

the four mutable signs are…pisces,gemini,virgo and sagittarius

pisces..the two fish….the end of the winter phase of the year…..remember mutable means “subject to change”

gemini…the twins “castor and pollux” the end of the spring phase

virgo….the destroyer/shiva/satan of the summer part of the year and the bringer of the harvest of the earths growth….hence again another reason why there is a link between virgo and saturn/old father time

old father time is pictured combing the hair of the weeping virgin

img_8722

http://gravelyspeaking.com/2011/12/27/father-time-and-the-weeping-virgin/

why is she weeping?

because the growth of the earths produce has come to an end……again another reason why there is a broken pillar in the picture above

and sagittarius……..the half man half horse (centaur) with either a bow or spear…the “horse and its rider” as sung about in the scriptures

and those cardinal,fixed and mutable signs are all “trinities” or three parts of each season

And even more……..each of the zodiac signs have three decans…again a trinity….one of the decans “announces” the sign

I spoke about three of them in my blog “something wonderful is about to happen”

the three decans of capricorn……the “something wonderful that was about to happen” was the birth of the new sun to start the next year off

the three decans of capricorn are sagitta (the arrow),aquila (the eagle) and delphinus (the dolphin/womb)

17sagitta
the three decans of capricorn in the night sky…sagitta..the arrow,aquila the eagle and delphinus….”the dolphin” or “womb”

again sagitta starts the sign of capricorn off….brahma…the starter/creator/cardinal

aquila is the middle of the sign of capricorn….firmly established/fixed….or in the hindu symbolism….vishnu

and delphinus (meaning womb or dolphin) corresponds to shiva the destroyer/mutable/satan/grim reaper/saturn/harvester

the decans of the other signs are

The 3 decans of Aquarius…..Piscis Australis (southern fish)/Pegasus (winged horse)/Cygnus(the swan)

3 decans of Pisces….The Band(the band)/Andromeda(woman in chains)/Cephus(the crowned king)

Aries…..Cassiopeia(the enthroned woman)/Cetus(the sea monster)/Perseus(the breaker)

Taurus….Orion(the glorious one)/Eridanus(the river)/Auriga(the shepherd)

Gemini…..Lepus(the hare)/Canis Major(the dog)/Canis Minor(the little dog)…….can you start to see some of the bible stories in those constellations?

for instance……Canis Minor……the little dog

Matthew 15:26

Jubilee Bible 2000
But he answered and said, It is not good to take the children’s bread and to cast it to the little dogs.

if you want some further reading on the decans throughout the gospels I would recommend

“The gospel and the zodiac” by the Rev.Bill Darlison

Cancer…..Ursa Minor(the little bear),Ursa Major(the great bear),Argo(the ship)

Leo…..Hydra(the serpent),Crater(the cup),Corvus(the raven)

Virgo….Coma(the desired),Centaurus(the centaur),Bootes(the coming one)

Libra….Crux(the cross),Lupus(the victim),Corona(the crown)…again….notice any of these constellations in the story of jesus and his crucifixion?

Scorpio……Serpens(the serpent),Ophiuchus(the serpent holder),Hercules(the mighty one)

And finally Sagittarius….Lyra(the harp),Ara(the burning pyre),Draco(the dragon)

In my blog “sex and religion” I endeavour to show that sex and religion are both connected to each other

And in the book “Sex and sex worship,phallic worship” written by O A Wall….the writer tells of the trinity of the phallus

the two testicles and penis acting as the one impregnating unit though composed of three separate and differently functioning parts

and again…Aleister Crowley pictured it in the devil card of the thoth tarot deck

The two testicles and the tip of the penis again make an upright triangle…the male triangle

the_devil
notice the female or feminine in the left testicle……dancing their way up the phallus…while on the right…the masculine or male…they are fighting and clawing their way to the top…lon milo duquette also says there are what might be representations of chromosomes in each testicle

karyotype

in James Ballantyne Hannays book “Sex symbolism in religion” he goes as far as to say the “three in one” of the trinity are the three parts of the male in the one part of the female during sexual intercourse

another interesting bible verse to consider is Proverbs 25:11

“Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket.”

golden apples?….in a “silver basket?”

now if you’ve been following this blog from the beginning you will know that gold is the metal of the sun…..and the sun is male…he is the bridegroom who returns at the spring equinox to meet his bride,and the metal of the moon or the female just happens to be silver….and when the two come together you get the hieros gamos…..the holy marriage

tumblr_mhnjvd4iW91qlmnf4o1_500
NOTICE THE METAL OF THE SUN IS GOLD AND THE METAL OF THE MOON IS SILVER

Well…could the “apples of gold in a silver basket…or silver carvings” might be the sex act symbolized in the scriptures?

timely advice is lovely…just as the sex act is lovely

Most people do not know that a lot of our customs and practices are to do with the sex act whether it be throwing confetti and rice at a wedding…(the ejaculation of the penis)

popping a cork on a champagne bottle…..again…..the orgasm

dancing around a maypole…the maypole is the penis and there is usually a circle around it representing the vagina…again the sex act….just as Crowleys card above does

Maibaum_Ostfriesland967
notice the sex act the male “pole” inside the female “circle” and the “ejaculation” represented at the top this maypole in Germany…the sperm being the…ahem…maypole syrup

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

why mayday and the maypole?

well in the northern hemisphere may is the spring and spring is when the suns rays/sperm are really making things grow on the earth…..and the fertile earth is giving forth her growth….it is a time of happiness and plenty

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

may the first is also 40 days from the spring equinox…and again those 40 days are a time of rest/inaction/lent/jesus in the wilderness for forty days before he started his ministry/moses in the desert for forty years before they got to the promised land……before things start moving again….like a nap……maybe that is why we take “forty winks”…a nap before we get moving again

it is all allegory of above…and here below

the microcosm is a reflection of the macrocosm

or as the great Hermes Trismegistus said(and in line with this blog on the trinity…trismegistus means “thrice greatest”)

“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…” 

Hermes Trismegistus

Thanks for reading

 

John the Baptist,his cousin Jesus/The Summer and Winter Solstice

51GfIMN-RTL

In memory of the Rev. Robert Taylor,who was called “The Devil’s Chaplain.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Taylor_%28Radical%29

In this blog,hopefully we will understand why Jesus and his cousin John the Baptist are born 6 months apart in scripture.

And  help us see why John says the following at John 3:30.

“He must increase, but I must decrease.”

46dc07aa37b0e7f937e2aa2a3545f054

And again we will see the 4 elements (earth,air,fire and water) hidden right in front of our eyes in the scriptures.

So lets get started!

The book of Luke 1:26-35 tells us about John and Jesus being two cousins!

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26 “In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[a] the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month.”

According to the bible verses above,the Angel Gabriel visited Mary to tell her she was about to become pregnant.However did you notice her cousin Elizabeth was 6 months pregnant already,when she was told this?

We can discern from the above that there are 6 months between the birth of John and Jesus.

John is the older cousin,Jesus the younger.

We know by tradition that Jesus is born on the 25th of December at the Winter Solstice.

However, isn’t it a coincidence that John the Baptist day is on June the 24th,at the opposite end of the yearly cycle?

It’s called St. John’s day after John the Baptist.

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

Jesus and John just happen to be born 6 months apart,and the summer and winter solstice happen to be 6 months apart.Again,this could just be a coincidence.

At the Winter Solstice we have Christmas time,representing the birth of Jesus or the birth of increasing light.The “old” sun has reached the end of its old cycle and is now “born again” as the new sun for the new year.

Christmas occurs at the darkest time of year!

The Summer Solstice is St Johns Day,where the sun is at it’s highest.

St. John’s Day occurs at the lightest time of year!

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

john jesus 3 001

On the above diagram,you can see the head of the year at the Summer Solstice/John the Baptist Day,where the sun is at the Tropic of Cancer.

And the foot of the year at the Winter Solstice/Jesus Day/Christmas/Tropic of Capricorn.

Do you notice the arrows decreasing after the Summer Solstice?

And the arrows increasing after the Winter Solstice,as the light starts to return.

Is it just another coincidence that John says this in the bible book of John chapter 3 verse 30,as mentioned before.

“He must increase, but I must decrease.”

The light decreases after the summer solstice,the only way is down as the Sun’s light and power starts to recede after the longest day.

And conversely,the light increases after the winter solstice,the only way is up!

The two solstices are 6 months apart.

TheTropics
The suns journey between the two tropics takes six months.

Jesus and his cousin John are two representations of the solstices and the workings of light!

Notice again that I said St. Johns Day is the head of the year above?

The Summer Solstice is the top of the year,the acme,the zenith…..The head……and after the summer solstice,the head is no longer.

And didn’t John the Baptist lose his head?

salome3

John the Baptist Beheaded

14 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the reports about Jesus, and he said to his attendants, “This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead! That is why miraculous powers are at work in him.”

Now Herod had arrested John and bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, for John had been saying to him: “It is not lawful for you to have her.” Herod wanted to kill John, but he was afraid of the people, because they considered John a prophet.

On Herod’s birthday the daughter of Herodias danced for the guests and pleased Herod so much that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she asked. Prompted by her mother, she said, “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.” The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he ordered that her request be granted 10 and had John beheaded in the prison. 11 His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who carried it to her mother. 12 John’s disciples came and took his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus.

The first verse above calls Herod the “tetrarch.” “Tetra” means “four.”(see my blog  “The hidden knowledge” for more on the four)

John’s beheading is an allegory of the Summer Solstice and the Sun losing its power!

Moreover, I also said the Winter Solstice is the foot of the year.

And didn’t Jesus get a nail in his feet?

pictures-of-jesus-nails-feet-1138661-wallpaper

Doesn’t the first prophecy in the bible say this….

Genesis 3:15
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

The above verse is talking about the cycle of the year.

Each “ruler” in turn deposes the previous “ruler” who reigned for six months.

The hero gets hit in the foot,or heel.(Achilles and Krishna (Christ) for example).

Shri-krishna-Jara
Krishna and Achilles,with the wound in the “foot.”

Here is a bit of mystical knowledge that might be of interest to you,the “foot” is actually the penis(the same thing is meant when a mythical hero gets wounded in his thigh or side)…more in a later blog,but ponder on this for now…the head is a creative centre of thoughts and ideas (higher realms)…..and the penis and generative area is a creative centre of matter and life/generation.(lower realms).

The serpent gets it in the head…i.e…a death blow.

This is all metaphor informing us that light always overcomes darkness!

You can light a dark room with a small candle light,can you not?

But you can’t darken a lit room by shining a “darkness torch” into it.

Light always overcomes darkness.

The bible says the same thing by saying the wife is always subservient to the husband

Colossians 3:18

In other words the emotions (female/darkness/winter/passive/death) must always be subservient to the mind(male/light/summer/active/life).

However…..back to the 4 elements

https://biblodiac.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/the-hidden-knowledge/

In the above post about the 4 elements above you will learn that two elements are “female”…..earth and water.

And two are “male”….air and fire.

And by male and female,I mean like the positive and negative terminals on a battery,not just sexuality…the two polarities in nature.

In ancient temples they were symbolized by the two pillars of the temple…such as Jachin and Boaz in the Temple of Solomon.

So when you see two pillars at the outside of a temple….think of them as the anode and cathode,or positive and negative terminals on a battery.

BatteryTop

Positive=male.

Negative=female.

The positive and negative in an electric plug.

Those two polarities reside throughout nature.

Summer and Winter….Summer is male…and Winter is female.

Active and Passive.

Innies and Outties : )

The masculine force projects outwards…active.

The feminine force is receptive/attractive (and aren’t women attractive?)…passive.

After St. Johns Day,at the Summer Solstice,the light gets less and less each day.

Its as if the earth is drawing breath inward and retreating…..growth slows down and stops. (passivity).

Yet..after Christmas Day,the opposite occurs.The earth starts to breathe out again……the light gets stronger (Activity).

Its the yin and the yang of the East.

You should be able to notice these 4 elements in the discourse between john the baptist and Jesus.

John representing the negative/female/earthly elements….Earth and Water.

And Jesus representing the positive elements……Air and Fire.

John the baptizer identifies himself with the element earth at John 3:31.

“The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all.”

Notice john identifies himself with earth? (coincidence?)

Further proof of his “earthiness” comes from the book of Matthew chapter 3…

Where it tells us in verse 1.

“John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness”

Verse 4

John’s clothes were made of camel’s hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey”

Earthy motifs surround John the Baptist.

Yet he is associated with the element water also.

Verse 6

Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.

john baptized with water as he even tells us in verse 11

11 “I baptize you with water for repentance

John represents the elements EARTH and WATER!

John_the_B_preaching_C-63
Earthy john about to baptize people in water.

So what about his (6 months younger) cousin Jesus.Does he represent the other two positive elements? (Namely Fire and Air)

Let John himself answer from the same verse…..again verse 11 of Matthew chapter 3.

“But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire

917cf957ea79d1eabb174207109dce45

Notice John says Jesus will baptize with fire!Now we have 3 of the 4 elements…the third being FIRE.

Where is AIR though?

The Latin word for Air is Spiritus….Spirit!

http://latindictionary.wikidot.com/noun:spiritus

introduction-to-spirituality-14-638

So when John says Jesus will baptize with spirit,he is talking about the element AIR!

So we again have the 4 elements hidden in front of us in plain sight in the scriptures.

eafw_illuminati

Earth and water….symbolized in the figure of John the Baptist.

Air and fire…..symbolized in the character of Jesus!

Earth and water are the lower/earthly/passive elements………subservient to the active elements.

Earth and Water are the realms below.

And the active elements are fire and air.These are the higher/active/male elements from the realms above.

And isn’t it interesting that Jesus said this at John 8:23.

31743290f212fd10fb5e82dad4a58d30

This is also why the apostle Paul was teaching the Israelites this concerning John in the book of acts 13:25.

As John was completing his work, he said: ‘Who do you suppose I am? I am not the one you are looking for. But there is one coming after me whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.”

Because the feminine elements are subservient to the masculine elements.

Matter is subservient to spirit.

Important info ahead…….Darkness is subservient to light…and Evil is subservient to Good!

Once more,”matter” is “mater,””mother,” “mudder.” And isn’t mud made of Earth and Water?

82f2ac77d308326253c13a062f804db6
All of the words for mother in various languages.

Pater is pattern/father….the father that imprints the pattern into matter and gives it form.

And as I’ve said over and over,once YOU get the PATTERN,you will start to see these things for yourself.

http://www.spiritual-knowledge.net/articles/fire-water-air-earth.php

Are you starting to see it yet?

It’s the holy science!

Three Cycles…The Day,Year and The Great Year.

NGC-1232

Wheels within wheels in a spiral array
A pattern so grand and complex”

Rush (Natural Science).

Ezekiel 1:16

“The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

Hi folks…this blog is a long one!

The purpose of this blog is to hopefully show why the three cycles of the day,year and great year affect us all.

Most people are unaware that there is a “Great year.”

And also it will show how the “Great Year” and the zodiac are right there in the bible….just under the surface.

It will also explain how there seems to be a contradiction in the way God acts….i.e in the old testament he is a cruel,angry,warmongering god…wiping out rival nations and sparing no one.

Yet when Jesus comes along he tells us his father is a beneficent god…caring for the individual and telling us to love our enemies….why?

Its to do with the zodiac and the planets!

In this case the difference between the planet Mars (ruler of Aries/God of War)…and the planet Jupiter (ruler of Pisces/Jovial beneficent God) as we go round the big clock/zodiac of precession.

To understand what I’m getting at,please try to familiarize yourself with the qualities of each of the 7 planets of the ancients(see my blog called “the magnificent 7” for some info)

Please click on all the links…..they will fill in the gaps and hopefully confirm what I’m saying.

So folks….here goes!

The day,the year….and the great year.

Three cycles or “wheels of time.”

Although we are familiar with the first two,most folks are unaware of the great year.

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

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

This blog is about the bible and the great year,and of course…the zodiac!

“This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.”

EZEKIEL 1:16 

“And if you look for it as for silver

and search for it as for hidden treasure,

then you will understand the fear of the Lord

and find the knowledge of God.”

PROVERBS 2:4,5

In the first chapter of his book,Ezekiel describes a vision where he sees four living creatures and “wheels within wheels.”

The 4 “creatures” are a bull,lion,man and eagle.

All occult orders understand that the 4 creatures are symbols and among other things can represent the 4 elements.

Churchgoers who take the bible literally,do not on the whole.

The bull,man,lion and eagle can respectively symbolize…earth,air,fire and water.

These are occult hidden teachings……..in no way mainstream….known to all the secret orders…and completely alien to your average person in the street.

here’s the result of a search for the Free Masonic order and their understanding of the symbols.

The Rosicrucians.

Only now are we (the profane) glimpsing these formerly hidden things.

We understand that “hermetically sealed” means airtight…..the word “hermetically” pertains to hermeticists and Hermes,the Mercury of the Greeks.

These teachings have been kept “airtight” to all except those who are truly looking for truths.

And these once hidden teachings,are now being made available to all.

This time though,I would like to focus on the “wheels within wheels.”

Here are some examples of wheels,or cycles.

The three “wheels” or “cycles” are 1/the day,2/the year and 3/the great year.

The day has 24 hours.

The year contains 12 months.

And the great year lasts almost 26,000 years.

If we look at the first cycle,the 24 hour day as a zodiac wheel ….then dawn would be likened to the sign of Aries in the daily cycle.

Why?,well because the dawn or sunrise of the year starts in Aries.Its called the vernal or spring equinox,and it happens every year in the sign of Aries around March 21st.

Each day is like a miniature year.

In the day for example,take dawn as starting at 6am,in the 24 hour day,each 2 hours would equal one sign of the zodiac.

6-8am would be Aries,8-10am Taurus,10-12 Gemini…this is the spring of the day. (Morning is the equivalent of Spring in the day)

12-2pm Cancer,2-4pm Leo,4-6pm Virgo.(Afternoon is the Summer of the day)

6-8pm Libra,8-10pm Scorpio,10-12pm Sagittarius (Evening is the Autumn of the day)

12-2am Capricorn,2-4am Aquarius,4-6am Pisces are the (Winter “dark times” of the daily cycle)

They are like a miniature 4 seasons in one day.

6am (dawn) would be equivalent to the spring equinox of the day,when light overtakes the darkness and brings life back to the earth.

12 midday would be the summer solstice of the day,the highest point the sun reaches in the sky.

6 pm would be the autumnal equinox,when darkness again returns and “overthrows” the light.

12 midnight would be the winter solstice of the day,the darkest hour of both the day and year.

And this is the wheel or cycle of the day.

Each two hours or “zodiac sign” of the day has a different “feel” to it.

For instance,10-12 in the morning (Gemini) has a different atmosphere or “feel” to it than 2-4 (Leo) in the afternoon.

And so in every year,each sign of the zodiac has an atmosphere of its own,with unique attributes.The sign of Gemini (May/June) is late spring,Leo (July/August) is mid-summer,and again they each have a different ambience to them,caused by the angles of the sun.

The 12 month yearly cycle breaks down into the 4 seasons.

Aries/Taurus/Gemini are the signs of the spring months.

Cancer/Leo/Virgo are the signs of the summer months.

Libra/Scorpio/Sagittarius are the zodiac signs of the autumn months.

And finally,Capricorn/Aquarius/Pisces are the signs of the winter months.

The twelve signs of the zodiac are:-

Aries the lamb,Taurus the bull,Gemini the twins,Cancer the crab,Leo the Lion,Virgo the virgin,Libra the scales,Scorpio the scorpion,Sagittarius the centaur,Capricorn the goat,Aquarius the water carrier,and Pisces the two fish.

Let’s focus on one of the signs and see its relationship to the scriptures.

For this example we will pick the the sign of Cancer,the highest point the sun will climb to in the northern hemisphere,hence the “Tropic of cancer.”

Cancer the crab…also it was symbolized by the unicorn and also the dung beetle/scarab in Egypt.

https://okafala.wordpress.com/2014/07/02/the-crab-the-scarab-the-unicorn-the-chariot/

The sign of cancer is the very height of the suns transit through the year.It’s acme,its zenith…its highest point.

rsz_1zodiac_sine_wave
Notice where it says “Summer solstice” at the top of the upper part of the sine wave (June 21st) and you can see it is the beginning of the sign of Cancer.Jerusalem (summer solstice) is the heights..Heaven! The opposite (winter solstice in Capricorn around December 21st) would be Gehenna…the depths….Hell!

The sign of Cancer is also allegorized as Jerusalem,the heights,the most high,the zenith,the top of the mountain…Heaven!

Here’s an interesting verse in the bible that bible folks still argue about to this day.

Why did Jesus require two donkeys for his glorious ride into Jerusalem?

http://www.tektonics.org/qt/twodonkeys.php

The verse in question is matthew 21:2.

The King James version of the bible names this passage of scripture the “Triumphal entry.”

And it is a triumphal entry…why?

Because Jesus/The Sun is about to ride into Jerusalem/summer solstice/sign of cancer as king.

Jesus/The Sun will reign as the “most high” as it reaches the highest point of its yearly journey.

And the people shout this in Matthew chapter 2 verse 9.

“Hosanna to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[c]

“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

And the people still welcome the Sun/King/Jesus at the Summer Solstice to this day,just as they did back then.

let-the-sunshine-i_1662485i
People giving reverence to the King at Stonehenge at dawn.

Do you get it?

The sun is almost above your head on this day…it is at its highest point of the year.

Its all about the sun,the zodiac and the constellations.

“Jerusalem” symbolically is the sign of cancer…the summer solstice…the tropic of cancer is the heights of the year.

The sun is reigning as the most high over mankind in its glory.It is the longest day and the light/sun Jesus is on his throne.

So getting back to the question…why did Jesus tell his followers to get two asses to ride into Jerusalem?

Look at the constellation of Cancer,and what are the chances of this?

The constellation of Cancer has two donkeys or asses.

Asellus Borealis (The northern donkey)

Asellus Australis (The southern donkey)

image008

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So when the sun is in the sign of Cancer (the crab) at the summer solstice,there are two donkeys with him,just as the bible says.And he’s at his height of power at the tropic of Cancer (Jerusalem)

However,what goes up must also come down,and the sun will be decreasing after this point and the days will get progressively shorter once more.

So why was the sign of Cancer symbolized by either a scarab or a crab?

WingedScarabBeetle
The scarab beetle with the sun.

The thing about the dung beetle/scarab is it pushes a ball of dung backwards.

Dung-Beetle
The scarab pushes the golden ball backwards,just as the sun at the summer solstice starts to move back wards down to the tropic of Capricorn.

And the crab has its sideways walk,looks like it is retreating.Another interesting fact about the crab is that it also sheds its shell.

And this pictures the sun in Cancer,retreating right after being at its zenith,the sun starts “walking” sideways/backwards in its yearly journey round the zodiac wheel.

http://www.thealchemicaljourney.co.uk/uncategorized/cancer-the-crab-the-scarab

And so it was for Jesus also.It was all downhill from there on for him after he rode into Jerusalem in triumph.

Riding into Jerusalem was his zenith,the people waved palm branches and hailed him as king.

jesus-christ-riding-into-jerusalem-for-passover
Notice the sun at Jesus’s head.

However,after this,Jesus is about to get betrayed/judged and finally killed.

It’s the story of the sun!

So that was the day and year,but now we get to the great year,also called the precession of the equinoxes,or Platonic year.

Also axial precession,and this “precession” is due to the wobble of the earth,like a spinning top seemingly turns opposite to its spin as it wobbles.

notice in the picture below…the two different directions of the earths spin

670px-Earth_precession.svg

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

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precession#Axial_precession_.28precession_of_the_equinoxes.29

In the above wiki page notice the sun moves 1 degree every 72 years.

We will touch on that in a future blog.

The bible is telling us about the movement through the great year in pictorial poetry.

The massive cycle of nearly 26000 years.

And it starts in the sign of Taurus on the big year in the bible….as we are moving backwards through the zodiac,reaching a different sign of the zodiac roughly every 2000 years.

This is why it is called precession and not procession.

Hence we go from sign to sign like this.Taurus/Aries/Pisces and Aquarius.

And each one of the twelve,2000 year periods are called “ages”

As we move from one sign to the other there is a guide to usher people through the birth of the new age….these are the messiahs.

Other groups call the Messiah by a different name,but they are all the same.

Buddhists call him Maitreya,Hindus call him Krishna,Christians call him Christ,and Muslims call him Imam Mahdi or “the twelfth Imam.” (twelve due to the twelve signs of the zodiac)

If you read the articles in the wiki pages below,please notice all the numbers are linked with all the other religions. (because they are all linked by the zodiac)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_al-Mahdi

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelver

The new age is a whole new way of doing things,a whole new consciousness/atmosphere/collective psyche. It’s a new system of things!

For instance,when mankind was moving from the sign of Taurus to the birth of the new age in the sign of Aries in the big precessional clock……the “messiah” or guide back then was Moses.

The age of Taurus was the time of bull/cow/calf worship (we still see remnants of cow worship in India to this day).

So at the cusp of Taurus/Aries we have the scenario of Moses heading up Mount Sinai to get the commandments from God.These commandments or laws are the new rules for the new age that has arrived.

GoldCalf

However while Moses is up the mountain,the people down below make a golden calf.

The Golden Calf is representing the age of Taurus.

The people also have an orgy (sahaq) See section 3(d) in the page below.

http://www.enduringword.com/commentaries/0232.htm

Why?

The sign of Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus.

Venus rules the sign of Taurus,and some of the attributes of Venus are love,beauty.But also desire,sex and orgies..Hence the word “venereal” in venereal disease comes from Venus.Another name for Venus is”Aphrodite,”and it is from Aphrodite that we get “Aphrodisiac,”again connected with desire and sex.

And you also get song lyrics like this.

“Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame(of course she will have a silver flame,silver is a feminine colour)
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

She’s got it
Yeah, baby, she’s got it
I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
your desire

But those golden calf  worshippers of the age of Taurus haven’t discerned that the precessional clock has moved from Taurus to Aries.(They are still clinging to the old ways).

When Moses comes down from the mountain,he has the “culprits” all killed.

Because the sign of Taurus is over.

Please note well the above scenario,because at the start of every age,there is a culling off of all those who cling to the old ways and old Gods (ways of thinking)….still clinging to the old patterns of life.

Moses is leading the people from the old age of Taurus into the new sign of Aries.(The lamb/sheep/ram)All new symbols and images.

Could this be why Moses is pictured with horns on his head….lambs horns?

xo4f8bc7a5

web-horns-9

Here are some other indications that they were heading into the sign of Aries.

Every zodiac sign has a motto.

BYwlEa5CEAAY2Y1.jpg-large

The motto for Aries is “I AM.”

When Moses asks God who shall he say sent him?….what does god answer?

Tell them “I AM” sent you.

http://biblehub.com/exodus/3-14.htm

We learned the planet Venus rules the sign of Taurus,but what planet rules the sign of Aries?

Mars!

Mars is the god of war,and this is why now their god is the “Lord of hosts,”or “Jehovah of armies.”

http://www.gotquestions.org/Lord-of-hosts.html

They are constantly at war with their neighbours,from the influence of Mars.

Even today we get the word”martial” from Mars,and also the word “march.” Mars  rules Aries (Ares is the Greek word for the god Mars).

This is also why in the scriptures Paul preaches at Mars Hill,also called the Areopagus.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Areopagus

Soldiers also “march” off to war.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March#Origin

It is important to know what planet rules what sign,because it will answer why God seems to change all the time.

From a warring tyrant in the Old testament to the caring,beneficent,loving father of the New Testament.

More on that in a bit,but for now,back to the Aries symbolism.

The Jews were known in the old testament to be shepherds…or linked with ram/lamb/sheep symbolism (think King David who was a shepherd),they also blew the rams horns when they brought down the walls of Jericho.All of this is Aries symbolism.

Another interesting thing of note about Aries is that it is also a fire sign.

http://www.astrology.com/article/zodiac-signs-aries-sun-sign.html

And didn’t Moses talk to the burning bush?

Now that was the Age of Aries the lamb,now on to the next age in the precessional clock and we arrive at Pisces. (the two fish)

So after Moses and his age is over with,the next messiah will be the guide taking people from Aries to the sign of Pisces,so step up Jesus,the Piscean Messiah!

This is also why Jesus was called the lamb of god also,he was heralding the end of the age of Aries,just as the golden calf heralded the end of the age of Taurus.

The sign of Pisces is two fish,the motto is “I believe”(see chart above) and the ruling planet is Jupiter/Jove or Zeus.

We get the word “jovial” from Jove or Jupiter.

So we should expect some fishy type symbolism from the life of Jesus…and some Jupiterian stuff also.

In astrology Jupiter is the greater benefic,as opposed to Mars who is the lesser malefic.

http://thezodiac.com/jupiter2.htm

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malefic_planet

And right on cue with the fish symbolism,his disciples were to be “fishers of men” and some were fishermen by trade.

In fact when Jesus starts gathering his disciples,they are out fishing in their boats.

calling-the-fishermen01s

Jesus fed the masses with “two fish,”the sign of Pisces is two fish.

index

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+14%3A13-21&version=NIV

He also gets a coin from a fish’s mouth.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew%2017:24-17:27&version=NIV

Incidentally,it was a four drachma coin.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coin_in_the_fish’s_mouth

Early Christians identified each other by the symbol of the fish.

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

In fact Christians to this day have fish symbols on the back of their cars.

Fish-Symbol-car
Fish symbolism is connected to the sign of Pisces.

“I believe” is the motto of Pisces…and Jesus ministry was all about finding “believers.” The people all believed in Jesus.

Doubting Thomas after touching the wound of Jesus “believed,” did he not?

Jesus says in the scriptures,”whoever believes in me will get eternal life.”

It’s all about belief (I believe),which is the motto of Pisces.

As touched on above,Jupiter (the ruler of Pisces) is the benevolent planet,unlike mars the war planet (mars rules Aries).

This is now why.God is benevolent,Jesus preaches a loving god/caring god,in opposition to the warlike God of the Old testament.

Again,all because in the great year,the clock has moved from the age of Aries,(ruled by mars)to the new age of Pisces ruled by Jupiter.All due to axial precession,and how each age has a different effect on the planet and our psyches/consciousness.

Jupiter of the Romans is also called Zeus in Greek.

This is why the new religion of Christianity is built on Peter… The Jew-Peter (Jupiter)

Jezeus and Jewpeter,just a coincidence?wordplay?

In bodily astrology the sign of Pisces rules the feet.(see the fish at the feet?)

astro-main

Now wasn’t Jesus connected with feet?He was walking everywhere.

Didn’t Jesus get his feet washed by the sinful woman,and didn’t he also wash his disciples feet?

36618_all_026_03jesus-washing-feet

Didn’t he also get a nail in the feet?

jesus-feet-combo

The article of clothing still associated today with Jesus would be “Jesus sandals.”

And we still have this this famous picture today associated with Jesus.

Walk With Me.jpg.opt550x400o0,0s550x400

Aren’t Christians “footstep followers” of Jesus?

Some contend the statue of peter at the Vatican may be an old statue of Zeus/Jupiter.

Even if it isn’t.,the statues feet are almost worn away from all the rubbing and kissing.

P1110149

So Pisces is connected with fish,feet,Jupiter,benevolence,and the motto “I believe.”

But one time the age of Pisces will be at it’s end,and then will have to make way for the next “new age” and that new age is the age of Aquarius.

And what do we have swirling in the ether?Songs such as this one below.

And,according to some,we are now at the cusp of the next “new age.”

Jesus the old Piscean guide said he would be with us all the days until the end of the “age” did he not?He promised he would be with us till the end of the age of Pisces.

We have a “new age” movement today do we not?,we have great unrest everywhere.The birth of the new age is upon us,and like any birth,it will get bloody and stressful until the new child/new age arrives.

The new age of Aquarius is the “son of man” who will arrive,Aquarius is the only man of the zodiac (all the rest are animals,twin boys,centaurs etc)Aquarius is the man with the water pitcher.

And right on cue,Jesus tells us this in luke 22:10

“As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters”

Notice the man with the pitcher of water? (Aquarius symbolism)

Notice we also have to follow him into the “house” (houses are connected with astrology and the zodiac)This would be the Aquarian “house” of the zodiac.

A whole new way of thinking/rules/teachings/ways will enter into our psyches/mass consciousness….it’s a renaissance of sorts.

The old institutions are now starting to go stale,can you see it?….feel it?

This is why the bible says there has to be a great apostasy (falling away),before the next system/age arrives.People can see through the lies of their religions and are turning away.This new age of information is crumbling all the old paradigms/models/patterns of living all around us.

The old ways will be eradicated,the old wineskins/institutions cannot contain the new wine.

Mark2:22

“And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”

It’s an out with the old and in with the new!

Yet people will try to cling to the old ways,even to the death,just as they did in the story of the golden calf in Moses day.

In Jesus time,there was a great culling also,Jerusalem was surrounded by the Romans and those who didn’t heed the warning of Jesus perished.What warning?

Luke 21:20

“And when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you will know that the time of its destruction has arrived.Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city.”

And the historian Josephus said over 1 million people died.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Jerusalem_%2870_CE%29

So there was a culling when the age of Taurus gave way to the age of Aries,and a culling when the age of Aries gave way to the age of Pisces.

And moving into the next age will be no different.

Have a wee look at the motto for Aquarius above,the motto for the age that is coming.

Ponder on that motto and you will comprehend why the bible says there will be a great apostasy from religion,which is all but belief and superstition.

The book of revelation also shows Aquarian symbols throughout for those who can see it.

Aquarius is ruled by Saturn (and Uranus,more in a later blog)

Such as this.

Revelation 22:1

“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb”water being poured is an Aquarian motif.

And also this.

Revelation 14:15

“Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”

Saturn who rules Aquarius is the God who is associated with the sickle and scythe,with which he reaps the harvest of the earth.

unknown1
Notice all the symbolism of Saturn from this medieval painting,Aquarius bottom left,Capricorn bottom right,the six pointed star of Saturn,and holding the sickle….the harvest Saturn is connected with is the harvest of humans as spoken of in Revelation.

In the above  verses…can you see Aquarius and also Saturn featured?Can you see the grim reaper there?(old father time) Saturn is connected with the harvest.

In the book of revelation 14:3,the “new song” is the whole new way of living/thinking/doing.

Its a renaissance,a new tuning.

Jesus and Moses were not real historical people,they were representations/composites of those who were awake and conscious of what was happening around them.They were the light,the consciousness,they were those who came back to life,those who rose from the dead…they were the dry bones come to life!

Its an awakening…a new realization…a paradigm shift.

I remember finding out the truth about Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Allowing myself to question dearly held beliefs,that we were told never to question.

It was a massive awakening for me,very frightening also,it was as if I awoke from a hypnotic spell.The scales fell from my eyes.And I could see through all of the deceptions and lies.

I never felt so alone as I had next to no one to talk to about it though,and yet I felt empowered by knowing the truth about “the truth,”as Jehovah’s witnesses like to call themselves.

Every ex-Jehovah’s Witness talks about having an awakening/a dawning that it wasn’t the truth…and for every one it is an incredible journey.

its an a-haaa!I get it! moment.”I see the real truth behind the veil” type of understanding.

Seeing the man behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz.

pay-no-attention-to-the-man-behind-the-curtain

Jesus said he would bring division did he not?

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law–a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’

Jehovah’s witnesses can no longer talk to anyone who speaks out against the organization,they must be totally shunned.

Watchtower 2012 isolate family and friends 2

Jesus is a metaphor for the truth and light (darkness is ignorance/lying) and when people accept “real” truth they accept Jesus/the light/truth/conscious awakening,that is why Jesus is the a-ha moment.

The dawning of the age of Aquarius will be like that for mankind.

At the end of every age,people also escape from bondage/slavery.

In Moses time they escaped from Pharaoh and Egypt…and bondage to the Egyptians.

God told Pharaoh to “Let my people go.”

Exodus 8:1

In Jesus time they escaped from the false teachings of the lawmakers/pharisees/scribes leaders of that time also.

Jesus said,”you will know the truth and the truth will set you free”

John 8:32

There will be an escape to freedom in this age also,however….

“To escape from your prison,you first have to see you are in one”

Finally……..here is a quote from the book “whee! we,wee all the way home”

Saturn-The Lord of the Rings!

Saturn_by_HST_l

Hi peoples of the planet!

Hopefully this blog will explain the following:-

Why Satan is often pictured as a goat.

baphomet4

…..and why the Devil is often associated with fire!

116522-bigthumbnail

It’s all nature and the zodiac/astrology folks!

Every year millions of people all over the world celebrate Christmas as it arrives around the Winter Solstice.

In Rome there was a festival celebrated around the winter solstice called “Saturnalia.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturnalia

Why Saturnalia?…Why the connection to the planet Saturn,and also the god Saturn?

Well….its due to the influence of the zodiac and astrology!

Many of the customs of Saturnalia have been absorbed into the celebration of Christmas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturnalia#Origins

Christmas is celebrated mostly on December 25th,around about the Winter Solstice!

And what sign of the zodiac is December 25th in?

December 25th is in the zodiac sign of Capricorn…the goat!

If you are familiar with some astrology,you will know that each sign of the zodiac is traditionally ruled by one of the seven planets…look at the table below and you will see that Capricorn is ruled by Saturn.

Zodiac-signs-and-the-planets-they-re-ruled-by

Saturn rules the house of Capricorn(the goat),he is on his throne in Capricorn,and in the northern hemisphere Capricorn starts off the three months of winter!

Capricorn+low
Here we have a depiction of the house of Capricorn…Capricorn is the goat and the planetary ruler of Capricorn is Saturn!

In fact the word “capri” means “goat!”

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/capri-

The Winter Solstice is the “midnight of the year”…the longest night is at the winter solstice…..light is in short supply as it’s also the shortest day!

Darkness rules over the light…and isn’t Satan called the “Ruler of darkness?”

http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/articles/index.php?view=article&aid=40304

Winter is the time of darkness and death in the northern hemisphere….also of cold and decomposition!

In the yearly cycle, the Sun/The light of the world/Jesus “dies” at the winter solstice as it reaches the tropic of Capricorn.The old Sun of the previous yearly cycle dies here,just before the “new” sun starts the next cycle off.

In allegory,Jesus is forsaken by his father,and killed by Satan!

Notice the theme of darkness in the scriptures,also Jesus being forsaken at Matthew 27 verses 45 and 46

Darkness came over all the land.And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

 

2013 Faith Church Final Words my god
Notice again the theme of darkness…..it’s the winter solstice,where the sun dies on December 22nd…and 3 days later you celebrate Christmas…the “newborn baby” Sun is born for the next yearly cycle.

This is the “cross” below which Jesus/The Sun dies on every year.

cross_zodiac_solstice
See the winter solstice?This is when Jesus dies to the old year and the new year is about to start.

 

As said,death,cold,darkness and hardship are the kings of the earth in the northern hemisphere at the winter solstice.

Saturn the ruler of the house of Capricorn is at his strongest at this moment of the year.

Saturn is Satan….Ruler of the house of the goat!

revelation-part-one-b-44-638
Note Saturn with this sickle,this is important because Saturn is also the “Grim Reaper.”

This is why this time of the year was called Saturnalia in Rome around the sign of Capricorn at the winter solstice.

It is nature in allegory!

All the representations of the devil/Satan are symbols of Capricorn and Saturn.

the book called “the secret teachings of all ages” says this

Saturn is also the called the black sun in astrology.

Saturn is the opposite of the Sun,Saturn represents darkness,and the Sun represents light.

And doesn’t the word “Satan” mean “adversary” or “opposer.”

http://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/satan/

The sun is Jesus,Jesus is the positive aspect of nature….the “Yes” part of nature.

2nd Corinthians 1:20,talking about Jesus says.

“For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.”

Jesus is the aspect of light/life/growth/fruitfulness/happiness/truth/summer/heaven/positivity….YES!

The black sun is Saturn/Satan/the dark aspect of nature/death/non growth/decomposition/lies/winter/hell/negativity….NO!

They are the opposites in nature!

imagesizer

Jesus/the Sun,rules the Spring/Summer months…the light/heaven!

Satan/Saturn,rules the Autumn/Winter months,the darkness/hell…The inferno!

The Italian word for winter is L’Inverno…the Inferno.

http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/italian-english/inverno

And doesn’t inferno mean hell and fire?

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/inferno

Yes!….But it is a cold fire….not the hot fire that we think of when we imagine hell….it is the cold fire of decomposition that occurs at wintertime as all the greenery of the summer months now breaks down.

Satan/Saturn rules the inferno,Saturn rules the night time of the year/the dark/the cold…he is Mr. Freeze….Mr. Cold!

He is also “the prince of the power of the air!”

Ephesians 2:1-3

“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air.”

Why is Satan/Saturn called the prince of the power of the air?

 John 14:30-31 (NIV)

“I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me”

Look again at the above bible verse

Jesus (the sun/light) who rules spring and summer says “the prince of this world is coming”

The “prince of this world” would be Satan/Saturn who rules the autumn/winter.

Jesus reign starts at the spring equinox (march 21st) in the sign of Aries.(Aries is the ram/sheep/lamb) Jesus is the lamb of God.

His reign lasts for six months till the autumn equinox arrives at September 23rd in Libra…the scales of justice.

These are the six months of light/growth/fecundity.

 

RA 200In the above picture,Jesus/the Sun rules this part of the zodiac,the spring/summer months.In the mystical teachings this is called “The Royal Arch.”

However in the story of Jesus in the bible,there is a time when he is about to be judged.

The six months of light come to a halt,the nights are about to get longer than the days…everything is about to be reversed…growth and light have had their day!

This happens in the sign of Libra at the autumnal equinox!

Libra is symbolized by the scales,and you still see the scales connected with courts where judging happens to this day.(It’s all due to the zodiac and astrology)

court-justice-scales

We are now in the sign of Libra (around September 23rd),when the scales tip and the darkness now rules over the light.Nights are longer than the days!

What planet exalts (or rises) in Libra?

And what planet falls in Libra?

Look at the box on the top right in the wiki page below.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libra_(astrology)

Saturn/Satan is exalted in Libra,and the Sun falls in Libra.

Do you see the allegory?

In Libra at the balance of the autumnal equinox,Saturn is exalted.

Saturn/Satan is on the up and up…….taking over from the light!

Jesus/the Sun is on the way down.The Sun falls in Libra.The Sun/Jesus is deposed from his throne,the “Royal Arch” is no more!

In the sign of Aries (opposite the autumnal equinox at the spring equinox). It’s the opposite way round.

The Sun/Jesus is on the way up (in the bible he is gathering his disciples and about to set out on his preaching and healing ministry)

The Sun exalts in Aries!

Saturn falls in Aries! Saturn/Satan is dethroned!

Again…see the box at top right in the wiki page below to see the reverse of Libra which is opposite Aries in the zodiac!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aries_(astrology)

Back to Saturn in Libra though……

Libra is the “cardinal” air sign.

libra_cardinal_sign_of_air_card-radb38f7f628b475e9ca2e9eb18546378_xvuat_8byvr_324

The cardinal signs are the power signs,they are the “we have lift off” signs.The power that starts each season…the door to the season (and cardo means hinge)

They are the signs that start the season off.The door/gate and spark of each season.

Aries (fire sign) starts spring off.

Cancer (water sign) starts summer off (hence tropic of cancer is the summer days in the northern hemisphere)

Libra (air sign) starts autumn off.

And Capricorn (earth sign) starts the winter off.

As we saw earlier,Saturn exalts in the power (cardinal) air sign of Libra.

Can you see now why Saturn is the prince (exalted in Libra the air sign) of the power (cardinal) of the air?

Again…Libra is an air sign.

It’s all an allegoric,poetic way of telling us about Saturn exalting in the sign of Libra at the fall/autumn equinox(return of darkness to the northern hemisphere)

This is when darkness/Satan/Saturn returns to reign for 6 months,and the sun is in decline and off into exile.

Saturn rules this world,his symbols are all around us,and yet very few notice this fact….let me explain.

Lets look at some symbols of Saturn.

Saturn’s colour is black in astrology/alchemy…..well he is the prince of darkness after all!

lead and black

Saturn is also connected to the shape of a cube (six sided) according to the Sefer Yetzirah.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=WF2F5M9SPTgC&pg=PA59&dq=cube+of+space+sefer+yetzirah+saturn&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjp-YKIs8vNAhXnI8AKHUy9C-wQ6AEIPTAG#v=onepage&q=cube%20of%20space%20sefer%20yetzirah%20saturn&f=false

For more information,research the “cube of space” in the “sepher yetzirah” and its link to Saturn.

A cube has 6 sides. Satan/Saturn has links to the number 666.

Every year,Islamic people take a pilgrimage to walk around this black cube.

kaaba1

This is the kaaba….kaaba means cube…a black cube

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=Kaaba

The pilgrims to Mecca have to circle the Kaaba,this is called the “Tawaf”

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

The pilgrims circle the Kaaba just as the rings of Saturn circle around the planet!

index
Did you notice that from this angle,the cube has the shape of a HEXAGON!

Look also at this Jewish man with his “Tefillin.”

PhotoELF Edits: 2010:01:23 --- Saved as: 24-Bit 100% JPEG YUV444 --- crop

Again,it’s the black cube!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/judaism/customs/tefillin.shtml

Saturn according to the mystical occult teachings,is the force that holds our 3 dimensional world together (symbolized by the cube,up/down,left/right/forward and back)…it is the king over matter…..it doesn’t mean that it’s bad or good….it’s a necessary FORCE that allows matter to exist.

Look also at this scripture below.

Acts 7:43

“Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the “star of your god Remphan””

Who or what was remphan?

http://biblehub.com/topical/r/remphan.htm

Remphan is Saturn!

What does the star of Remphan look like?

hqdefault

 

The star of David is the star of Remphan….the star of Saturn!

(Have you noticed the Star of David has a hexagon inside it?)

See the hexagon inside the star?

A star with 6 points,just like the 6 sided cube at the Kaaba.

and what about Christianity?

The cross of Jesus is in the shape of an unfolded cube.

102_282cThe cross of 6 squares!

The Kaaba is a 6 sided cube!

The Star of David has 6 points.

And we have 666!.Mankind has been hexed with matter.In fact the word “hex” is number 6.

The word “Hex” also means a “spell” or a “witch!”

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hex#Translations

And lastly,look at this picture of Saturn’s north pole.

 

index

What are the chances that it’s a 6 sided shape.A hexagon!The same hexagon as inside of the Star of David/Remphan…..Saturn!

Another name for Saturn is Kronos/Cronus or Chronos where we get the word “chronology,” linked with time!

http://www.windows2universe.org/mythology/Definitions_gods/Saturn_def.html

Chronology is connected with the number 6,also the sexagesimal system and its multiples.(Can you also see the word “sex” connected with Chronos/Saturn?)

We have 60 seconds.

60 minutes.

24 hours (4×6)  are the 24 elders in the book of Revelations.

We have 1440 minutes in a day ( if you took 1440 to the third degree you would get 144000…a day for a year for a great year!) (Another number in the book of Revelations).

These numbers are connected to “time.” “Old Father Time,”also known as “The Ancient of Days in the bible,with his long white beard.(The God Saturn has a long white beard)

images

Saturn or Chronos is “The Grim Reaper”(see my post “the magnificent 7” about the link between Saturn and “The Grim Reaper).

Why is Saturn the grim reaper?

Because Saturn is Chronos and Chronos gives us the word “chronology”…..it’s all to do with time!

Mankind has been hexed with time!….Again hex= number 6.

And time eventually destroys everything on this earth……EVERYTHING!

The greatest civilizations on earth will all eventually disappear.

The poet Shelley recognized this when he wrote the classic poem “Ozymandias.”

ozymandias-ppt-8-728

“I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

Do you get what Shelley is saying?

He tells us of  a ruined statue in the desert,two legs and a shattered sneering face of a once powerful ruler!On a pedestal it says “My name is Ozymandias “King of Kings”..”Look at me ye mighty and despair.”Yet despite all of his power and command….even his statue lies rotting….He hadn’t reckoned with Old Father Time,who sweeps everything away…..Saturn is the skeleton with the scythe or sickle….who harvests mankind and levels everything and everyone with his deadly blade.

And us?The sands of time are running out for us also.We will soon be 6 feet under.And there’s the 6 again…he he

This is the real meaning of “THE LAKE OF FIRE.”

We live in the figurative lake of fire……or in the fiery hell of the bible!

Decomposition and decay is happening all around us.From bodies to buildings to vegetation to rocks.Everything will die and decay.Some things decay slower than others….but given enough time they will all disappear.All because of Saturn/Chronos/time and decay.

This is why Saturn is the grim reaper.He is death and decay personified…he is the old goat,who laughs at the plans of even the most fearsome human and their plans for world domination.

As Shelley said in his last verse of the poem above.

“The lone and level sands stretch far away……………………………………..”

Watch these two videos below,and see the cold fire of Satan burning things away.

The above videos show us we live in a “Lake of Fire” right now,and it’s all around us!

To a faster or slower extent this will happen to everything on the earth.

Nothing is permanent…everything decays.

This decay when speeded up….looks like “fire” burning things up!

Now do you see why Satan/Saturn/Kronos rules the lake of fire?

This is why Jesus said in Matthew 6:19-21

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

At one end of the scale is decomposition,yetat the other new life and structures are being built!

Its a cycle………or like a snake or serpent eating its own tail!

This is the meaning of the Ouroboros.

3b05a953783f742c2502f962c4c92891

Do you see the star of David/Remphan/Saturn/Satan in the above picture?It’s all a symbol of chronology…the serpent eating it’s own tail!

So really…Satan/Saturn does rule this world of matter and constant decay and rebirth.

2 Corinthians 4:4

Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.”

Notice in the above scripture,the contrast of light and darkness,the blind and those who see the light?

666 is also called the number of man.

Revelation 13:18

“This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”

Why man’s number?

Of all the carbon life forms on this planet,man is top of the tree!

We are the highest of all the carbon life forms on earth.

And carbon has a structure of

6 protons

6 electrons

and 6 neutrons

hqdefault

Just a coincidence?

These are the teachings of the occult orders,that have been hidden and handed down for thousands of years.

Mankind has been hexed!

Some secret orders were called the “Carbonari.”

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/carbonari

Another name for Saturn is Sut(soot).Get the connection to carbon and waste products and the colour black?

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=i8RT3J3hURcC&pg=PA77&lpg=PA77&dq=saturn+sut&source=bl&ots=kw9dpoOusm&sig=RKhW5AIdCTsNAGKfgSgWGndcpXw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjL6Y2lw8vNAhUrBMAKHbpeAB0Q6AEIKDAD#v=onepage&q=saturn%20sut&f=false

Saturn was also called “Set,”as in “sun-set.”When darkness returns in the cycle of the day,and the Sun seemingly plunged into the dark underworld to the ancients!

Because Saturn,the black sun rules the night/cold/frightening dark.

Satan really is the ruler of this world,because he is a metaphor for time and decay,destruction and death!

However unless things decay,you would get no new growth.That is why manure is needed to invigorate new plants and life.

Satan/Saturn is also called Beelzebub,or lord of the flies,as flies are found at this end of the spectrum or cycle.

Decomposition and death/destruction……and new life through that process!

Remember the sun is reborn every year at Christmas,the darkest time of the year!

Jesus was born in the midst of his enemies,allegorically in the scriptures.Herod/Herrut tried to extinguish the newborn light.

http://www.egyptiangods.co.uk/herrut.htm

Christmas occurs in Capricorn (the goat). Satan rules over new birth also.

Saturn rules Capricorn(remember this fact and you can work out bible allegories…its a key!)

The birth of the sun on December 25th,as it starts the new year.

New life grows from decaying matter….manure.

This is why Saturn is the god of agriculture…..However his harvest is everything, humans included….he completes the cycle!

New life comes through Saturn/Satan also.

So really,Don’t fear the (grim) reaper and his sickle!

He’s only doing his job….and as has been said elsewhere.

“Its a dirty job….but someone has to do it”

That someone is Saturn!

It’s occult science and nature/the zodiac……all hidden in the scriptures,myths and religious texts all over the world!

If you managed to get through all that……thanks for reading!

2nd Corinthians chapter 3 verse 6 says

“For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life”

So don’t look at the bible literally….see the real story!

Thanks for reading fellow peoples of the planet!

The Bible and the Zodiac

Image

Welcome to all who made their way to my blog.

The bible and the zodiac?You may be asking yourself,isn’t that an oxymoron,doesn’t the bible condemn astrology?

If you asked me that 10 years ago I would have agreed.

However I am going to make a claim that will disturb and upset people,and if that happens to be the case, I understand,I really do,I know it did disturb me at first.

It is difficult to look hard and truthfully at dearly cherished and long held beliefs,and to even consider them as being wrong,it is as hard as staring at the midday sun,and mostly everyone will turn away from doing so!

So please know I mean no harm.

My claim concerns the zodiac,astrology and the bible.

Astrology and the zodiac is all throughout the bible,hidden in plain view for those who have eyes to see it,and are willing to dig just under the surface of the bible verses.

And it means much more than horoscopes,reading your stars in the newspaper,fortune telling and weird animals in a circle.

It isn’t woo or gobbledygook,it is a form of “ancient science,”and it’s amazing once you “get” it…..as I hope to show.

First though,how did I get to this point,how did I get here,and what brought me to this thinking?

Well since I was little,I’ve been asking,”what is life all about?”

My mum said I was always interested in wanting to know who God was even when I was little,I always remember her telling me one of the first questions I ever asked was “Who is God?”

I also wanted to know what the bible was saying from a young age,I could not understand a word of it,yet it seemed somehow important to people.

I always thought it was telling us something,but for the life of me,I couldn’t grasp what.

However,the need to know what it was saying,seemed at times insatiable.

This led me to religion,I tried churches here,there and everywhere….but they didn’t seem to feed my “hunger.”

I was always as empty leaving them as I arrived,yet everyone else around me seemed happy enough,satisfied with what they were taught,so therefore I used to think the fault lay with me.

Then I became a Jehovah’s witness through a circle of friends,one of my friends had a sister who was in the navy,and he told me she was going to leave the Royal Navy to become a Jehovah’s Witness.

Well I knew nothing about Jehovah’s Witnesses and asked him why it would make her leave what I thought was a good career,it sounded a strange decision to make.

He said she had found “the truth” about the bible and she could no longer remain in her career.

Then I had another friend who after talking one time about “spiritual things” with the same group of people (none of whom actually were Jehovah’s witnesses) he gave me a book to read saying it was very interesting.

The book was “You can live forever in a paradise on earth” written by the watchtower society.

When I started reading it,it seemed to use bible verses all the time to explain it’s stance on things,and I thought it had answers for every question raised.

For compared to my little understanding I had at that time on my life’s journey,and the understanding of every churchgoer I had met previously,JW’s seemed to know a lot.

They seemed to know their bible well,and when asked any question,could quote scriptures fluently to answer them,and boy could they flick through the bible,knowing every book it seemed and pinpoint the answer in seconds.

I thought I’d found where God was! (uh oh)

I met my wife there,and I was a Jehovah’s witness for over two decades,thinking I had the truth.

However (I bet you knew there would be a however…he he),the gnawing returned and eventually my questioning led me out of there too.

I started to realize the witnesses knowledge of the bible was by rote,and they never strayed much off their well trodden path.

And when I really started to question “our” dearly held beliefs…the answers were not forthcoming…however hostility was.

I remember the occasion of the last circuit assembly ( a circuit assembly is a gathering of a couple thousand JW’s),I asked a brother I knew,a simple question I had at the back of my mind,concerning  Job 40:17.

(You’ll probably laugh at the absurdity of the conversation but it’s where JW’s are in their thinking)

Jehovah’s witnesses say that the “behemoth” talked about in Job was a hippopotamus according to the “society.” (the top brass).

The verse says…..

“Its tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of its thighs are close-knit.”

I said to the brother that I didn’t think the tail of a hippo resembled a cedar as it was just a little short thing.

Hippo tail 2

His answer shocked me,he said to me “Watch what you’re doing,beware of looking too close into things…as the brothers who write the books know much more than you,and to start researching yourself can get you into spiritual trouble”

I thought,”WOW!” we are really restricted.in that we cannot even talk about the bible verses openly and “stray off the path” of what we’re told…not even one iota or people get nervous around you.”

(petty stuff eh?)

And adding on to that experience,I saw a “sister” (JW’s call each other “brother” and “sister”) crying outside the main auditorium and was being calmed and comforted from one of the assistants.Her response again stopped me in my tracks…she actually said “I should try crying like this more often,I got more attention and help here,than I’ve ever had at my own hall.”

I could see the poor woman was depressed,obviously felt unloved and unnoticed,and all this in “Jehovah’s loving organization.”

After that I went back into the main auditorium and saw the “man from Bethel” (Bethel is the main headquarters) giving his talk,walking up and down…people were hanging on to his every word,nodding and applauding,all the while I could see some of the things he was saying weren’t right.

The scales were falling from my eyes!…..big time!

Then my questioning continued,I remember saying to my wife one time,”I think there is something wrong with the Governing Body as they have had an affiliation with the United Nations for 10 years” (Jehovah’s witnesses teach that the UN is the seven headed wild beast of the book of revelations).

And the watchtower’s response was that they only did it to gain a “library card”

un.pt.guardian.2001-10-15lettertoenquiryHowever the UN have stated that you do NOT have to be an NGO (non-governmental organization) to use the library…..so someone was lying…….guess who?…he he

image3161image2971

So I said to my wife,I think there is wrongdoing going on with the Governing body,but not to worry…”Jehovah is still in charge”,at that she burst out crying saying I was trying to destroy her faith!

It stunned me!…it really did!I thought she would at least look at what I was talking about.

She didn’t…I could sense the fear from her!

Things from then on took a life of its own,there was no going back for me…I wanted to follow what was true,not lies perceived as truth.

I started “allowing” myself to research further and the house of cards collapsed completely.

I started to try to help others see the sham of the watchtower and all of the lies they were telling……oops! big mistake…no one wanted to hear it (that shocked me again).

In fact it turns out….everything was my fault!…I was the baddie for questioning.

I even received a visit from two of the elders on a shepherding call

They did not appreciate my sincere questions,or give me any answers that satisfied,and when I showed the convincing evidence of their false teachings,it was water off a duck’s back.

I (to my amazement) even received bitter opposition for even daring to ask such questions.

The cracks began to spread like lightning bolts……….

To say I was shocked when the house of cards collapsed would be an understatement.

My whole world evaporated before my eyes.

“Friends” who I thought were real friends disappeared,whoosh,gone,overnight!

In my greatest time of need when I needed someone to talk to,I had no one,I never felt more alone.

I want to state here though,they aren’t bad people,not at all,they are good people under a “spell/delusion” that binds them.

A “spell” that compels them to follow “the faithful and discreet slave” obediently without question.

It reminds me now of the German people under Nazism,compelled to obey by peer pressure,never to question the leadership.

JW’s are never to doubt God’s sole channel,to obey and follow no matter what,and to castigate/shun those who question the leadership.

They still ignore me to this day,it is incredible how you can be loved one day and hated the next,by your whole social circle.

Under immense pressure though,my wife,our kids,all stayed by me even though they are still witnesses.

Although it did cause an earthquake in their lives,they stood through it and we are still intact 8 years later.

I started to read the books I was told were dangerous “apostate” books …yet  they were the very books that would free my mind from the “spell” I was under…and believe me I am convinced it is a form of mind manipulation/control or as some call it…undue influence.

Those books were telling me the other side of witness world,and it helped me to have an “informed” opinion,rather than a “uniform” opinion.

I had no idea I was even under such a “spell” in the slightest,however looking back I now accept it was a form of conditioning,influence……….mind control!

I had an awakening of sorts,a new realization,a paradigm shift…an enlightening!

We were told as JW’s,that “apostate” books would confuse and trick us,lead us to destruction of faith.

That is wrong!…..to have an informed opinion you need to see the other sides point of view and if you really,REALLY have the truth it should stand up to scrutiny and should swat any lies like a gnat.

I realized that the people who wrote “apostate” books weren’t the demons we were told they were.

They were merely folks who could no longer ignore that small quiet voice inside,listened to their conscience,and tried to help those imprisoned by the lies of the governing body.

Even though they knew the dramatic consequences that speaking out would lead to,such as an ousting from their social circle….as I eventually would come to realize for myself.

For anyone interested Raymond Franz was such a man,he lost everything for “TTATT” (the truth about the truth) (Jehovah’s witnesses call their religion “the truth“) and you can read his story in the book “crisis of conscience.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Franz

All of the above is said as background to how I arrived here.

So here I was,back where I began.

SO WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?

Then came the jolt that started me on this amazing journey.

And it concerned the book of Ezekiel and his visions

Who was Ezekiel?

Ezekiel was among the captives taken into exile to Babylon from Jerusalem in the scriptures.

While in Babylon by the river Chebar (or Kebar) he had a vision of a chariot with four living creatures.

Vision-of-Ezekiel
Raphael’s depiction of the four creatures starting from from bottom right going clockwise… bull,lion,man and eagle

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezekiel+1&version=NIV

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_creatures_%28Bible%29

The 4 living creatures were:-

A bull.

A lion.

A man.

And an eagle.

And here’s where serendipity entered into things.

My cousin who had an interest in astrology said they were the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac.

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

The bull was Taurus

The lion was Leo

The man was Aquarius

And the eagle represented Scorpio!

I thought,stop there,I hardly know the zodiac but I know that the eagle isn’t a sign for Scorpio…the scorpion is…I knew that much….or so I thought!

However a quick google and there it was!

https://www.google.co.uk/#q=scorpio+eagle

The next thing that made me go “hmmm” was looking at those four signs on the zodiac wheel.

they formed a cross on the wheel.

55

A cross?…now isn’t that strange?

However….what did it all mean?

Why were Ezekiel and John who wrote “the book of revelations” telling us of the 4 creatures?

Ezekiel 1:10 KJV

“As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.”

Revelations 4:7

“The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle.”

Next time I will continue my journey.

And talk more about these 4 strange creatures and their link to the tetragrammaton,and how they symbolize the same concept….or formula!

And all Jehovah’s witnesses know about the tetragrammaton (meaning “four letters”).

Thanks for reading.

Peace to all peoples of the world!
