The Way: 11
The Messiah Projects:
Jesus, Son of Isis
"And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, out of Egypt have I called my son."
The New Testament, Matthew 2:15
"Isis, nature goddess whose worship, originating in ancient Egypt, gradually extended throughout the lands of the Mediterranean world and became one of the chief religions of the Roman Empire. The worship of Isis resisted the rise of Christianity and lasted until the 6th cent. AD"
"The ultimate end of your education was to make you a good wife. "
Lady Mary Wortley Montagu (1689-1762) , English society figure, letter writer. Letter, 28 Jan. 1753, to her daughter Lady Bute (published in Selected Letters, ed. by Robert Halsband, 1970). Lady Montagu advised Lady Bute on bringing up her own daughter "to make her happy in a virgin state."
"I was sent forth from God's power, and I have come to those who reflect on me, and have been found, among those who seek after me. Look upon me you, you who reflect upon me, and you hearers, hear me. You who are waiting for me, take me to yourselves. And do not banish me from your sight. And do not make your voice hate me, nor your hearing. Do not be ignorant of me anywhere or at any time. Be on your guard! Do not be ignorant of me. For I AM the first and the last. I AM the honored ONE and the scorned one. I AM the whore and the holy ONE. I AM the wife and the VIRGIN. I AM the Mother and the Daughter. I AM barren and many are my SONS. I AM she whose wedding is great, and I have not taken a husband. I AM the solace of my labor pains. I AM the BRIDE and the BRIDEGROOM. I AM she whose image is great in Egypt. "
The Thunder: Perfect Mind, The Nag Hammadi Library
"And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder..."
The above verse sets the tone for what we will be talking about in this part. In part one, I wanted you to see that the foundations of the Hebrew and Christian religions came from the worship of ISIS. Over the years, the Hebrews continued to worship ISIS under the name of Ashera, the lioness of Israel. Eventually, the Hebrews divided themselves into two religions. One still worshipping Ashera, the other worshipping a male God of their own creation. The reason for this split can be blamed on the time period in which they lived. Men were quickly dominating Earth societies. It was viewed by many in that era to be a sign of weakness to associate your religion with what they considered the weaker sex. Now into this muddle, you must add the fundamental differences in thought between males and females. In primitive cultures, this difference is much greater. I'm referring to the basic hunter/gatherer type distinctions. We know today, that much of the emotional and reasoning differences between males and females is attributable to cultural norms and the differences in education, males and females receive. But there is still a core difference between the sexes that cannot be blamed on environment. These differences are internal. There are basic hormonal differences that evolved over the years as survival traits. But even further inside exists a fundamental difference in male and female Ka's, or souls.
All these differences came into play as man began to develop his own religious and social structures. Nowhere was this difference felt more strongly, than in religion. Women think differently than men. Those of you in academic fields can argue as much as you like over this statement, but it will not change the fact in the least bit. Females are not simply males with reproductive organs. It is important to understand this difference, in order to see what effect it had on the Hebrew and Christian religions. The DOMA originally gave this religion to man via the priestesses. Later on, male priests would take over the religion. In the Bible, you have writings gathered together in one book that came from two separate sources. The first source is the DOMA/Priestess-based religion. The second source is from the male God/male priest's religion. Anyone who has read the Bible, has noticed the basic difference of philosophy between different chapters and different testaments.
There are supposed to be two different forces talked about in the Bible. One is the force of good, or God, and the other is the force of evil, or Satan. I have explained to you about the war and Satan's defeat at the hands of the DOMA. So what then, if Satan was no longer influencing man's religion, produced the differences found in the Bible? The differences you see in the Bible are a result of the differences between the male and female religions. To the female religion, the male religion represented the forces of evil. To the male priests, Goddess worship was seen as evil. Different parts of the Bible seem different because they were the result of different religions. Much of the Old Testament is the result of male religious forces. Much of the New Testament is the result of female religious forces.
Let me see if I can make this a little clearer for you. It is vital that you understand this. Let's divide the period of time from the end of the war until the present, into three periods. The first period is from the end of the war until Abraham. The second is from Abraham until shortly after Muhammad. The third is from shortly after Muhammad to the present. During the first period, the DOMA introduced basic laws and civilization. The people were strongly Matriarchal, or female-based in their religions. The second period saw the introduction of advanced religious philosophies via the Messiah projects. During this time mankind was left more and more on its own. Males, because of their physical strength, began to assert more and more control over both society and religion. Mankind began to shift from a matriarchal society to a patriarchal one. The third period saw these patriarchal forces overwhelm and destroy the matriarchal forces. Men established firm control over all aspects of Earth society and religion. This control has existed to the present day.
We have been talking about the second period throughout this Way message. It is a time when male and female religions were warring with each other. This war was eventually won by the males. They destroyed the female control of certain religions, but did not destroy the religion itself. They absorbed both it and the masses of followers. They killed the shepherdess and stole her flock. They made the laws she had given them their own. The females did not go down without a fight though. Nor did the DOMA sit idly by. During a brief 1500 year window, the attempt was made to balance the forces. This effort was focused on the insertion of DOMA-instructed 'storm troopers' if you will, the Great Teachers. For a brief while the DOMA thought they had succeeded. One by one, however, they saw their efforts absorbed into the growing patriarchal power base.
It taught them a very valuable lesson. They realized that even though they taught mankind advanced concepts, man himself needed time to advance. Mankind needed time to develop its own internal maturity and the technological knowledge necessary, to make physical strength alone less of a dominant factor. And so the DOMA decided to wait. They would continue to observe mankind, then when they thought them advanced socially, technologically, and morally enough, they would try to make contact once again. They would send someone, not to teach anything new, but rather to refresh their memories. If mankind had advanced far enough, could handle the social and religious implications that knowledge of the DOMA would bring, then they should be ready for the final step in their education. It would be a time when they would reach out and ask their teachers to return, not as children seeking to hide behind their mothers' skirts, but as young adults, ready to join the adult community of the Collective.
That time is now. This is the purpose of the Way. If they see you handle this knowledge and apply it to your lives, then you are ready to knock at the door, and they are willing to answer it. This is the promise, the Covenant they made with your ancestors. Keep this in mind as you read all that is to come. Remember also that your actions will speak louder than words. Now let us get back to our message. This war of control between the male and female forces, can be vividly seen in the Bible. Look at the following verses, very closely.
Isaiah 49:15 "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee."
Job 21:24 "His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow."
Ezekiel 8:14 "Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz."
The first verse is God reinforcing HER commitment to never forget the faithful. Notice what God compares 'His likeness to. The next is ridiculous even by the patriarchal fathers' standards. The last is very important because it illustrates that indeed, there were women inside the temple at Jerusalem, worshipping Ashera. Anyone interested should read the legend of ISIS and OSIRIS. Tammuz is the Hebrew version of Osiris. He was the consort of Isis and was killed by one of the rebel Annunnaki (ANK). Osiris' killer was a god named Set. The point I'm trying to make here is this. The first two lines were obviously written or came from, a female perspective. The second verse has been altered to read "HIS breasts" when everyone knows it should have been "HER breasts.' The first verse, doesn't actually come right out and say female, so they left it alone. The second verse did, so it had to be changed and the word 'his' substituted. Both verses are seen as coming from God, and are viewed as holy by church officials and lay people. The last verse mentioning the priestesses in their temple at Jerusalem, is now made out to be diabolical and the work of the devil.
What we have here are the three basic weapons used by the patriarchal fathers to defeat the priestesses. 1) If it sounds holy, and does not contain a 'she' or 'her' etc. , just use it like it is. Then say it's the male God speaking. 2) If it is holy, but contains a female identifier, change it to a male one, then use it as if it came from a male God. 3) Make every instance of female worship and anything associated with her, appear evil. These are the three main weapons used to destroy the female power structure, change the meaning of female doctrine, and absorb the theology and followers into the male church.
The men who later wrote what we consider the modern Bible, could literally edit from the beginning of history until their present time. They removed as much of the female-related material as possible. Nowhere was this done to a greater degree, than in the New Testament. Specifically, with the person we call Jesus Christ.
I have tried to prepare you as much as possible, for what I am about to say next. I showed you that your religions began in Egypt with the order of Isis. I have shown you where the male writers tried to erase her traces, or change her words and call them their own. I hope that you understand my purpose was not to hurt or destroy, your faith. It was simply time to tell the truth. Here, then, is what this has all been leading up to.
Jesus was sent by the DOMA. He was the result of the artificial insemination of a priestess of Isis, named Mary. He was sent by his Mother, not his father. His disciples were female. His supporters were female. His teachings were female-given. He was not the son of an all powerful male God. He was the offspring of a female DOMA, known as Isis. He was not God in the flesh. He was a prophet sent by Isis to bring you the WORD OF GOD. He did not die for your sins. He died from them. God did not kill him. YOUR ANCESTORS DID! The religion that you have come to call Christianity has little to do with what Jesus stood for, and the message he tried to teach you.
Before we go any further, I wish to say something specifically to the Daughters of Earth. The suffering and anguish this religion and others that sprang from it, have caused you was never intended. The DOMA have seen how you have been made scapegoats. They have seen how you have been made to 'carry the cross' of mankind's 'sin' upon your backs, the 'cross' of Original Sin. They have seen how you are made to be servants of men. They have heard the laughter of those who have taken what was yours and who have abused you in so many ways. Believe me now Daughters of Earth, your sisters on high have not forgotten you, and it is you, who in the end, shall have the final laugh. She who laughs last, laughs best.
Who was Jesus? Who was his mother? Who were his true followers? Read on and know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
We will look at the ultimate accomplishment of that religion started long ago in Egypt -- Jesus the son of Isis. We looked at the Alpha, now gaze upon the Omega. In the verses quoted at the beginning of this message, Jesus is surnaming some of his disciples.
Mark 3:17 'And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder.'
They are now, like himself, SONS of THUNDER. So that there would be no doubt of whom he spoke, I included a brief verse from one of her poems. In Greek, the word 'Thunder' is feminine. Jesus surnamed them after. She whose image is great in Egypt; Isis, of the DOMA. But who was he really, this man called Jesus? I don't intend to insult your intelligence by simply telling you what I know and asking you to blindly accept my words as truth. I intend to use the words of others, whom you will have no trouble believing in. The truth has not been destroyed, but merely hidden. I intend to show you the little hiding places.
Let us begin. I need to establish the integrity of my first source. So that there can be no doubt of this man's truthfulness, I would like to ask Jesus himself to vouch for him now.
Matthew 11:11 'Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he...'
Thank you Jesus, that should establish John's integrity rather nicely. John the Baptist was a great man. He was also related to Jesus, did you know that? His mother Elizabeth, was Mary's cousin. But the relationship goes much deeper than this my friends. John was also a product of the DOMA genetics labs. What? Where did you get that one from, you ask? See for yourself.
Luke 1:11 'And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. 12: And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
13: But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. 14: And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15: For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. 16: And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17: And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. 18: And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. 19: And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. 20: And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.'
The man here, is John the Baptist's father. The angel is Gabriel. This is the same angel that will be sent to Mary six months later. John was a gift from God, and by now you should know what that means. Now you should be asking yourself, "why, would the DOMA make two children, in these two related women?' The answer is fairly simple. Never put all your eggs in one basket, or in this particular case, buns in one oven. (A little DOMA humor there, folks) They made two babies, so that if one should die the other could still get the job done. It was logic and practicality. In this particular case however, it didn't work out so well, as we shall see much later.
Now, you're in for another surprise. There is a secret concerning the relationship between John and Jesus, that has been hidden from you at all costs. It is a secret so great and its implications so potentially 'Earth-shattering, ' that wars have been fought and lives taken to insure it never sees the light of day. I will reveal it to you in two parts. If you thought we went 'nuclear' before, then the final part of this secret is 'pure anti-matter.' Let's look into the first closet and see the skeleton that lays there.
John had a large following of people. Where did they all go? Gee, you're right. . . I never thought about that. . . . John had a huge following. These followers were just as holy and just as righteous as any of Jesus' followers. So why don't you hear anything about them? You had better sit down for this, my friends. The followers of John the Baptist are a people called, "Mughtasilah, ' which means, "Those Who Wash Themselves.' They are now living in Iraq and Iran. Washing of course alludes to Baptism. Today we call these people the Sabeans. The Sabeans include an order called the Mandaeans. They are to be considered Children of the Books, and as such, are to be considered holders of the Word of God. The prophet Muhammad, revealed this fact to the Muslims. Catch up Christians.
These people possess the Sidra Rabba, or Great Book, also called The Book of Adam, or the Ginza. They have a second book called, called the Book of John. It is sometimes called the Book of Kings, by the Mandaeans. This refers to the Kings, or light beings who exist in the heavens and direct mankind on the Earth. The Mandaeans believe the supreme being is one who they call, MARA d Rabutha. Now, where have you heard the name 'Mara' before?
The Mandaeans tell of the founding of Jerusalem by a powerful female Goddess named Ru Ha. She is viewed by them as evil. Ru Ha controls the Seven Planets (Seven DOMA Leaders). They say that Ru Ha worked evil on the Earth through several chosen men. These are Abraham, Moses, David and his son Solomon. Her greatest evil however, was realized through one final man. At her temple in Jerusalem, a young priestess was chosen to bear a special offspring. Her name was Miriam. We call her Mary. She brought forth the 'child of Ru Ha', the 'Imunel' (Immanuel) and he called himself, Jesus. He was baptized by John and taught much by him. He turned from John's teachings and led the people astray, the Mandaeans claim. The Mandaeans say that Mary is a "Daughter of the Moses" and that this Moses dwelt on Mt. Sinai. The Moses they are referring to here is of course Isis, and just as Isis chose Miriam to lead her followers out of Egypt, it is Isis (Ru Ha) again who chooses one of her priestesses named Miriam to give birth to her son, Jesus.
There you have it, my friends. These Mandaeans, who once were your treasured friends, whose leader was called the 'greatest man who ever lived' by Jesus himself, is now your bitter enemy. Sometimes you learn more from enemies than you do from friends. The Mandaeans did not lie to you. They knew full well, as did the founding fathers of your religion, that you followed a female Goddess named Ru Ha, or Isis. Are they right though? Is Isis evil as they say? Have you been following the teachings of a man sent by a female demon? Absolutely not. The Mandaeans are very bitter toward Christians, and they have every right to be, in a sense. The fact is, it was their Messiah that turned. John, (the other DOMA baby) , not Jesus. Believe me, my friends, they have ample reason to grieve so over John and Jesus. You must find it in your hearts to not feel enmity towards them. In turn, they must find the courage to forgive. A good friend of mine and yours and Jesus, put it far more eloquently than I can.
Koran 5: 68-69 "O People of the Book, you follow no good until you observe the Torah and Gospels (Jesus) and that which is revealed to you by your Lord (Koran). Surely those who believe and those who are Jews and those who are the Sabeans, and the Christians, whoever believes in The One God, and the last day and does good. . . they shall have no fear nor shall they grieve.
Oh my! They never taught us about that in Sunday school! There it is, the first part of a very dark secret hidden from you by those who don't want you to know the truth. Jesus told you to believe John, and that is what John told his followers. Whether you have the courage to handle it, is entirely up to you. What about the second part? I'm going to save it for a little while longer. You've just had enough of a shock for the moment. Do realize it's coming though. It will make the truths revealed above seem gentle in comparison. Let's look now at some of the things the followers of John said. Were Abraham, Moses (Miriam) , David, Solomon, and Mary, servants of the Goddess Ru Ha (Isis) as the Mandeans have said? Let's find out. Again, let's use the Bible as our teacher. I already went to great lengths to show you the connection between Abraham, Joseph, and Miriam, to Isis. Let's look at David, who is listed in the genealogy of Jesus. David was King of Israel and the sister state of Judea. This unification was his main accomplishment.
Was David following a female goddess? David was a shepherd, of sheep. We are told that the lord was with him while he tended his flock and saved him from wild animals. Isis, we have learned, was the shepherdess, or patron Goddess, of the shepherds. His next big claim to fame is the slaying of Goliath, with a sling and stone. The sling, as a weapon, was not much favored by men. It was, however, used by the most feared enemies of the Greeks -- the women warriors known as Amazons. David's capital was at Jerusalem. After the fall of Hazor, Jerusalem became the headquarters, or main temple, of Ashera, or Ru Ha as John said. It was this city that David ruled from. His next moment in history was brought about by an act of voyeurism.
II Samuel 11:2: 'And it came to pass in an evening tide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon. 3: And David sent and inquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bath-Sheba, the daughter of Eli, the wife of Uriah the Hittite? 4: And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.'
Here is another instance where the course of history was changed by the actions of a woman. You can bet that she knew David would see her there. Why did she wish to be with David? Because her son would later rule all Israel and build the High Temple of Ashera at Jerusalem. His name was Solomon. We will look at him shortly. David had an elicit affair with Bath-Sheba (notice the name Bath-Sheba). It means, Daughter of Sheba. Sheba is a nation ruled by sacred Queens. It was one of the richest and the strongest, Goddess strongholds of the ancient world. Much of the frankincense, myrrh and gold came from Sheba. It was no accident that a Daughter of Sheba was placed so close to the King. Sheba would play a big part in future Biblical events. It is through Solomon's financial relationship with Sheba, that funding for the Temple of Jerusalem would be found. Before we leave David to look at his son, verses below. In the religion that Isis's priestesses ran, a sacred king was chosen to symbolically represent Isis' mate. Each year in a special ceremony, a young virgin would be brought to the king. His duty was to play the part of the God and she, the Goddess. They would have intercourse. This ceremony also insured that the king was still vital enough to lead the country. Now look at this.
1 Kings 1:2 'Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat. 3: So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king. 4: And the damsel was very fair, and cherished the king, and ministered to him: but the king knew her not.'
Shortly after King David failed his virility test, Bath Sheba came to the palace. David transferred the power of kingship to her son, Solomon. David, who had committed adultery with Bath Sheba, murdered her husband and then taken her for his wife, died in his bed.
Now we look at the next character on John's list of Goddess worshipers, King Solomon. His worship of the Goddess was so blatant that even clergymen acknowledge that Solomon served the Goddess Ashera. Of course, he came to his senses during the building of the Great Temple, and worshipped the good male God, they tell us. If you believe that one, I have this little bridge over in Brooklyn for sale.... Solomon, Solomon, Solomon, what are we going to do with you, Solomon. My friends, I would give anything to have been there when the patriarchal fathers tried to work with verses like this one.
2 Kings 4:1 'And Solomon made affinity with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh's daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall of Jerusalem round about. 2: Only the people sacrificed in high places, because there was no house built unto the name of the LORD, until those days.'
The Daughter of Pharaoh? Well, can you tell me who she was worshipping? That's right, Isis. But if that's not hint enough, look at where the people are worshipping. Up on the mountain. The mountains were some of the most favored goddess worship sites known. The truth is, there was nothing they could do with these verses. But wait it gets better.
2 Kings 4:25 'And Judah and Israel dwelt safely, every man under his vine and under his fig tree, from Dan even to Beer-Sheba, all the days of Solomon.'
Remember your Goddess symbols. Here are two big ones, the vine and the fig. It is important to look at Ashera, and some of the symbols associated with her, more deeply. In many of the Goddess temples there was a large bowl or cistern, filled with water and used in various rituals. This bowl was a symbolic womb. These are the same bowls that Solomon had placed in the temple of Jerusalem. The early writers of the Bible tried to portray the time of the temple's construction as the time when Solomon worshipped the male God. In fact this was, simply, not true. As the above bowl example shows, the temple was built for the Goddess. One of her greatest symbols, seen in nearly all representations, was the lion. She was seen riding them, holding two in her hands, and flanked by one on either side. Now with this in mind take a look at the following verses.
1 Kings 7:29 'And on the borders that were between the ledges were lions, oxen, and cherubims: and upon the ledges there was a base above: and beneath the lions and oxen were certain additions made of thin work.'
1 Kings 7:36 'For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders thereof, he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the proportion of every one, and additions round about.'
1 Kings 10:19 'The throne had six steps, and the top of the throne was round behind: and there were stays on either side on the place of the seat, and two lions stood beside the stays.'
1 Kings 10:20 'And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps: there was not the like made in any kingdom.'
These lions were built in Solomon's home and throne. They were built at the same time the temple was built. The lion was a clear and known symbol for Ashera. Solomon, by building them, clearly establishes whom he is serving at the time. He served the DOMA, from his very birth. His mother Bath Sheba, Daughter of Ashera, saw to this. His mission was to build the main temple and gather the financial resources to support the priestesses of Isis. One of the greatest stories involving Solomon, is the visit of the Queen of Sheba. I have already told you that the country of Sheba was a virtual Goddess stronghold. It had been ruled by queens, as long as anyone could remember. This visit has confused historians somewhat for years. The Queen of Sheba had a country that could have swallowed Israel whole. Her wealth was such that she could have bought Solomon a hundred times over. Most of Solomon's city, only thirteen acres in size, was mud hut-like structures. The only real thing he could show her was his palace, and the temple. With what I've told you so far, you should be able to figure out why she came. She came to see the temple. She and her people were in direct contact with the DOMA. Her own temples were dedicated to the Goddess. She was simply paying a state visit to honor the temple. The Queen of the Goddess Temples opening up her newest franchise, so to speak. Now think about this for a moment. Solomon has just built one of the greatest Goddess temples of the age. Now what is it, other than statues, you would expect to find in a Goddess temple? That's right, a whole lot of women. Watch how the early church fathers deftly handled this overabundance of female flesh, this gaggle of girls.
1 Kings 11:1: 'But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; 2: Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love. 3: And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. 4: For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. 5: For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. 6: And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father. 7: Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. 8: And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods. 9: And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice. . .'
'That's it. . . we'll just say they were all his wives!' Oh, boy. . Notice here the inclusion of Molech. This God was worshipped by a small faction of Jews at Gehenna. It was one of the most wretched and despised cults of all time. It involved throwing children into a fire to appease the 'god.' Think carefully here, my friends. The worship of Ashera was the worship of the Goddess of fertility. As Hathor, she was said to be 'seven divine midwives, ' the 'protector of children and mothers-in-birth.' Do you really think a religion based on the divine sanctity of women and childbirth, would throw their children into fire? Now if Solomon really was supporting such a 'god, ' God surely would have killed him right then and there, wouldn't you suspect? At the least, his kingdom should have been overrun as a curse from God. This did happen to Israel, but notice in the below verse, when.
1 Kings 11:10: 'And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the LORD commanded. 11: Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant. 12: Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father's sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.'
The kingdom was not taken from Solomon. It was taken from his successor. Were they trying to associate this loss with Solomon's worship of Isis? You decide. My purpose in showing you both David and Solomon, was to verify two main premises: 1) that both were worshipping Ashera (Isis) ; 2) that the assertions made by John the Baptist were indeed true. Since all his statements regarding Abram, and his descendants are true, then his statements regarding Mary and Jesus must also be true. In fact, they are true, and the reasons why John's followers came to think of them as evil will become all too clear to you later on. Now let us return to the New Testament and examine the life of Mary.
Who was Mary? Did she serve the Goddess as John the Baptist said? Let me make a statement now that you may find hard to believe. The Virgin Mary was one of the most hated women in all history, by the early church fathers. What? You must be crazy. She's the mother of Jesus. They built all those churches to her. Why would they hate her? In order to understand my above statements, we must examine the Virgin in much greater detail. The first thing that you have to realize, is that Mary the biological mother of Jesus, and The Virgin Mary, whose temples and churches are spread throughout the world and who appeared to Joan of Arc, Bernadette, and Lucinda, are not the same person. Let me say that again. Mary the biological mother of Jesus, and The Great Virgin Mary, are two distinct and separate people. The founding fathers knew this to be true, and in one of the greatest calculated risks of all time, decided to use this knowledge in a plan to control much of the world's religion. In order to understand how, we must look back at the woman called Mary mother of Jesus, and who she was worshipping.
(Aleph -MaRa- Mem) Mary, we are told, was a young woman living a quiet life of chastity. We picture in our minds a young, beautiful, poor girl of Judea, with perhaps poor parents, living in modest accommodations. The founding fathers assure us, the pious and virtuous life, did Mary lead. They would have us believe that her only true function in life was as life support for our great male God's child, during the nine months he was forced to endure the degradation of being inside that container of sin we call woman. But, we are further assured, Mary was the only woman on the planet pure in God's eyes. We are also told that sex was not the method of reproduction, and therefore, Jesus was not the fruit of Original Sin. Mary then did not commit Original Sin in conceiving Jesus, but nonetheless paid the price of multiplied suffering (childbirth) since she herself had been conceived that way. So then, who did the vile deed, and produced Mary? The Bible itself only gives one clue to Mary's genealogy.
Luke 1:36 'And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.'
This is the angel Gabriel talking to Mary. And Elisabeth is described thusly: Luke 1:5 'There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.'
Now isn't that interesting. She's a Daughter of Aaron. This, of course, is the same Aaron who left Egypt with his sister Miriam. She is also the mother of John the Baptist. It's a small world after all. . . . The only other Christian reference to Mary's genealogy is in the Gnostic texts. These claim that Mary is the daughter of Anna. This Anna, is the priestess at the temple who blesses Jesus.
Luke 2:36 'And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity. .'
So, what can we deduce from the above verses? That Mary was related by blood to some of the more prominent priestesses and priests, of Jerusalem. She was in fact, a priestess herself as the next set of verses will show. Before we look at them, let me point out a very important fact concerning the historic validity of the New Testament. Historians have long said that no proof of Mary's or Jesus' existence has ever been found, outside Christian literature. In fact, there is a non-Christian book of enormous importance and status, that mentions both of them. This book goes out of its way to confirm the existence of Mary and Jesus, and the events surrounding their lives. Why then do the Christians not use this great book as outside confirmation of their own book? Because this book is the Koran. The third member of the Great Books given to mankind by the DOMA, so that they could have the Word of God. It is the holy book of the Children of Islam, and verifies much of the Hebrew Torah, and Christian New Testament. Yet countless Muslims were slaughtered by Christian soldiers and priests, to prevent the knowledge it contained from spreading. Why? If the Koran supported their own books, why in the name of God, would they murder the very people who could have verified their own faith?
In all Way messages, I have gone out of my way to not offend, or talk maliciously of, anyone. I would love to be able to tell you that those Christians, had a very good reason for not accepting the Koran, that there was some noble purpose, or higher ideal that they were following. In fact, they murdered both the Children of the Torah and the Children of the Koran, to satisfy their own petty lust for power and world domination. If anyone should doubt this, let them study the events of the Crusades, and of the Spanish Inquisition. The Children of the Torah, and of the Koran, were tortured, mutilated, and murdered, all in the name of Jesus, their God of mercy, compassion, and love. It was the building process of a great and powerful church. Its bricks the flesh and bones of the unbeliever, its mortar the blood of the slaughtered. It's symbol a bloody cross, the bloodiest cross in history. It was perhaps, the darkest hour in human history, and you have no idea how close this came to bringing destruction down upon all mankind. As the screams of the thousands reached the ears of the DOMA, they very nearly chose to stop the evil at its source. The fact that you still walk the Earth is by the grace of others.
To all of the mothers and fathers whose children suffered and died in anguish at the hands of these so-called holy men, I ask that you consider the words of the prophet Jesus, when he said, "forgive them, for they know not what they do." Remember this, Children of Israel and Islam, forgiveness is more powerful than any sword or weapon of man. It is the Scabbard of God, and from it is pulled the greatest weapon of all, the Sword of God, and its name is Love. I promise you this. I will do everything in my power to break the sword of blood which has killed so many of your children. The purpose of this Way message is to stop that particular sword, from ever again shedding the blood of the innocent. Now, let us look at a verse from the Koran, as revealed to the final prophet of God, Muhammad.
The Imrans 3:35 'Remember the words of Imran's wife. Lord, I have given birth to a daughter, and have called her Mary. Protect her and all her descendants from Satan, the accursed one. Her lord graciously accepted her. He made her grow a goodly child and entrusted her care to Zacharias.'
Now I ask all of you reading this who may call themselves Christians, are these words evil? Do they justify the actions of the men who formed the religion you now follow? The woman they are speaking of is Mary, mother of Jesus. Here we have identified for us, her father. His name is Im-Ran. Notice the first syllable of his name "Im.' It can also be rendered "Em.' Now look at this verse from the Bible.
Matthew 1:23 'Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.'
Notice the word Em-Manu-EL, it can also be rendered, Im-Manu-EL, which is the more proper form. Im means "of" or "from.' Mary's father was "of" Ran. This can be interpreted to mean he was a descendant of Ab-Ram. She was told that her son would called, Im-Manu-EL. Notice that the early writers wanted to make sure you interpreted this correctly -- their interpretation. They say Im-Manu-EL means "God with us.' Im, when found in a name, designates From or Of, not with. So, let's look at his name closer. El is the easiest part, it means 'deity.' So, Jesus is from, or of, a certain deity. Manu is the deity designator. If you ask any theologian if Immanuel could mean 'son of the God Manu, ' they will say 'no.' Why? Because there is no male Hebrew or Christian name for God corresponding to Manu. And they are absolutely right. Manu is not male, nor it is Hebrew. Just like the term 'Moses, ' it is Egyptian. It is Ma-Nu, the great Goddess who's symbol is the Nu, or Nun, the fish. Jesus, son of the Goddess Ma-Nu. Joshua son of NUN. Let's look again at the term 'Im.' I want to show you that there is more of a connection between Christianity and Islam, than you ever knew.
'imam' [Arab. , = leader], in ISLAM, a recognized leader or a religious teacher. Any pious Muslim may function as imam. The term is also used as a synonym for caliph, God's vice-regent. Among SHIITES the belief arose that a hidden or unrecognized imam, or true caliph (the MAHDI) , would return at the end of the world to restore the true CALIPHATE.
Do you see the connection to IMANuel? What I have tried to show you with theses verses are three main facts. 1) We have identified the father of Mary as Imran. 2) We have given further proof that Jesus was connected with the Goddesses of Egypt, and therefore the DOMA. 3) There is a relationship between Mary's father and the Imams of Islam. If then the Muslims supported the birth of Jesus by Mary, why would the Christians not use this information? What made them murder the very people that believed Jesus was a prophet of the One God? Because the Christians claimed that Jesus was not just a prophet, but was actually the son of God. They said that God's work therefore, was completed on Earth and anyone who should come after would have to be from Satan. When the Hebrews and Muslims refused to renounce their faiths and acknowledge Jesus as the son of God, the merciful, they were summarily tortured and murdered. The good Christians had made themselves judge, jury and executioner. The Hebrews had refused to acknowledge Jesus as the Messiah. They considered him to be one of the great prophets and teachers of Israel, but not the son of God. But what really upset them was the concept of the Trinity, or threefold God.
First of all they said, God is One, not three. Secondly if you say that Jesus is one third of the trinity, or Father, Son, Holy Ghost, then what you are really saying is that the man Jesus, is in fact, God. This, they claimed, is idolatry. The Muslims told them exactly the same thing, but added that Muhammad had been sent to teach man the final Word of God, by the same source that sent Jesus. The Christians of course deemed this blasphemy. Was it? Could Jesus be the Messiah, the son of God, God made flesh? After all if he really was the God of love, compassion, mercy, forgiveness, then would they not be totally and divinely justified to cause so much pain, agony and death in his name? After all, were not these the very principals they were trying to spread as his message? Just in case, why don't we look for ourselves, and see if indeed Jesus was God. Let's examine Jesus' birth, life and death. Let's find out what the truth is here, once and for all.
When was Jesus born? We are told that he was born on the 25th of December, in the year '0'. Nearly two thousand years ago. Was this is his actual birthdate? No one knows. In fact, most scholars now place his birth off, by at least four years. The simple fact is that the early writers of the Bible had no real idea of the exact date of Jesus' birth. What's that you say? But the writers of the New Testament, (Matthew, Mark, Luke,) weren't they with Jesus? Shouldn't they know? The fact is that the earliest date for the writing of the New Testament is estimated at a minimum, to be forty years after Jesus' death. The writers were not present. So where did they get the date from? Simple. They took the date that was sacred to all those who served Isis, the birthdate of her son Horus, the 25th of December, and assigned it to her symbolic son on Earth, Jesus. Now let's look at some verses for further clues into the mystery.
Matthew 1: 1 'The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2: Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; 3: And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; 4: And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; 5: And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 6: And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; 7: And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; 8: And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias; 9: And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias; 10: And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias; 11: And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: 12: And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; 13: And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 14: And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 15: And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16: And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.'
Jesus is listed in the Bible as being the direct descendant of these people. There is however, something very unusual about this genealogy that sets it apart from the normal Hebrew genealogy. It is the inclusion of the names of five women. Women were not considered important to the Hebrews of that time, at least not in genealogical listings. But wait, there is something much more significant than their mere mention. Realize that the inclusion of these women indicates a genetic course that Jesus' ancestry follows. Now realize that four of these women were NOT HEBREW. What!!!? Realize that all five of these women were involved in scandal. WHAT!!!? Before we go on, let me recommend a particular source book. I have strictly refrained from referencing or endorsing any particular book in this Way message, except for now and this one exception. It is the only one I will ever give such an endorsement to. The author is Bishop John Shelby Spong. The book is titled, "BORN OF WOMAN.' ISBN 0-06-067513-6, (INTL) ISBN 0-06-067529-2. Credit for the below list is duly given. Read this book.
Now let us examine these women. They are Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bath-Sheba, and of course, Mary. I will quote the following directly from the above-mentioned book. In addition to Mary, the genealogy presents Tamar, who played the prostitute to seduce her father-in-law, Judah.
Joshua 2:1 'Rahab, another prostitute, who assisted the spies in Jericho...'
Ruth 3:6 'Ruth, The Moabite lady who, by sleeping in his bed while he was inebriated, forced Boaz to exercise his filial responsibility to marry her...'
II Samuel 11:2 'And Bath-Sheba, who was identified in this genealogy not by name but as the wife of Uriah. King David had violated this woman and arranged for Uriah's death after being smitten with her charms as he watched her bathing on the rooftop.'
The inclusion of these women in this genealogy has intrigued and frustrated interpreters through the ages. Tamar and Rahab were both Canaanites. Ruth was a Moabite, and Bath-Sheba is thought to have been Hittite. Of them, only Mary was what we would call a Hebrew. All of these women were involved in what we would call sexual, or reproductive dramas. Yes, even Mary. Remember she was betrothed to a man and was found to be already with child. To the early church theologians, these women presented a very serious problem. Make that 'nightmare.' They were all, according to church doctrine, harlots, scarlet women. Yet like it or not, their Messiah could trace his roots to all of them.
Here is another point to consider. All these women were involved at very crucial points in Hebrew history. All of them, by their individual actions, changed the course of Hebrew and therefore Christian, history. God sure does work in mysterious ways, right? Wrong. It was not God but the DOMA who inserted these women into critical junction points in history, to achieve certain genetic objectives. They were all involved in reproductive redirections of certain Hebrew gene-lines. The end result of which was the birth of a very special child, Jesus. Now that we know who Jesus' mother and ancestors are, let's look at his conception, one of the strangest tales in the Bible.
Matthew 1:18: 'Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19: Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 20: But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21: And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22: Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.'
'With child' of the Holy Ghost, now how exactly did that work? Did Mary and the Holy Ghost, . . you know . . .? This is one of the biggest problems early theologians had to deal with. If Jesus had been conceived, as had everyone else, through sexual reproduction, he would have been born with Original Sin. The scenarios that were thought up to account for the Immaculate Conception would fill several volumes. If you ever find yourself with nothing better to do some evening, take a trip to the library and explore the literature yourself. You'll find them in the Fiction, Humorous section. Everyone knows about artificial insemination and test tube babies, so let's move on to Jesus' birth. There are two versions we will look at, Matthew's and Luke's.
Matthew 2:1 'Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2: Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. 3: When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4: And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5: And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judea: for thus it is written by the prophet, 6: And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. 7: Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. 8: And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. 9: When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, until it came and stood over where the young child was. 10: When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11: And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. 12: And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.'
These verses are absolutely loaded with great stuff. Where to begin? Let's set the record straight on one of the biggest mistakes people make about the birth of Jesus, the Magi and the Three Kings. The Magi, or Wise Men, are not the Three Kings of the Orient. Magi means, 'those who divine and do magic, Magicians.' Now this gets a little complicated, so I'll try to go slow and be precise. There was a legend that said, the Persian/Essene sages were the only ones who would know when the Messiah would be born. These sages are the Magi, or Court Astrologers of Ishtar, The Star. Ishtar is another name for Isis. When this star appeared it would tell the Magi of the Messiah's birth. People also make the mistake of confusing this Star, the Star of the Magi with the star that appeared over Bethlehem, where Jesus was born. They are not the same stars. The Star of the Magi is the Star we call today Sirius. It was then known as Sothis. The name 'Sothis' stood for a specific Egyptian Goddess, Isis. Everyone has seen her Star symbol on the walls of Egyptian tombs. It's the five-pointed star. Remember this 'Star,' for it will tie in to many things later on. The Egyptians would wait each year for when Sothis would rise in the East and signal the annual Nile flood. Three very prominent stars pointed in a straight line to Sothis. They are the three 'belt' stars of Orion. They were called then, and are still called today by the Egyptians, the Three Wise Men. The Star these three Magi were referring to was Isis. She announced to them via her priestesses the birth of Jesus. Isn't this fascinating?
So the first star mentioned here is a symbol. The second star is not. The 'star' that lead the Magi to Mary's house was in fact, a DOMA warship. A UFO to us. Once inside, they showered Mary and Jesus with all kinds of riches, frankincense, myrrh, and gold. Jesus had just become a very wealthy man. Oh. I forgot. You've always been taught that Jesus was a poor carpenter's son. Another mark of the 'revisionists.' His mother was related to what then were the nearly royal priestesses, the Daughters of Aaron. Add to that the fact she has been just given a small fortune. Do you recall when I told you to remember the frankincense and myrrh? Do you remember where it came from? Yes, Sheba. It is a small world after all. So what have we learned from Matthew's birth narrative? That the Magi are not the three Kings, nor were they present at his birth. They worshipped Sothis or Isis. And that Jesus was quite well off, actually. Now, let's look at Luke's version.
Luke 2:4: 'And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5: To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6: And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7: And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8: And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9: And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10: And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. 12: And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13: And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14: Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men. 15: And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. 16: And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. 17: And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. 18: And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19: But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. 20: And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.'
This story is so lovely, I don't even want to touch it. I will only comment on the Shepherds mentioned so prominently. As I said earlier, the priestesses of Isis relied on lambs for their sacrifices. You can rest assured that when news of the impending birth of Jesus spread to the various temples, that there were quite a few orders placed for lambs. The star again is a DOMA warship; the angel a messenger from the DOMA. They, just as everyone else who knew, were very happy at Jesus' birth. These then, are the birth narratives. They each give clues for us to use in our search for the truth. But there is much more to come. The early life history of Jesus has been shrouded in mystery. There are many tales of him traveling to other lands. Of these, there is only one for which there is Biblical documentation.
Matthew 2:13 'And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.'
Here is a very valuable clue. This angel tells them to seek safety in Egypt. Why Egypt? Isis still had a strong influence there. Jesus would be protected and educated by the priestesses of Isis. The priestesses would not be Jesus' only teachers. The DOMA themselves, taught him. They taught him about religion and all that had been done before his arrival. They taught him about Earth and the stars. They taught him about the Collective and of races who exist on other worlds. He knew who and what they were, but more importantly, he knew who and what he was. His education continued, even when he and his mother returned to Judea. Soon, it would be time to begin teaching what he knew to the people. Before this happened, there were two significant events we must look at. The first is the following.
Matthew 3:16 'And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him...'
Mark 1:10 'And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him...'
Luke 3:22 'And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.'
John 1:32 'And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.'
I have included all references to the first event. I wanted to show you that, although there are significant differences between various writers' versions of some events, they all agreed on the symbolism of the event. The dove is one of the most universal symbols of the Goddess. It is found in nearly all major religions both of the East and West. In India, there were seven Dove Goddesses, also called the Seven Razors (because of their ritual of circumcision). In the Orient, thye were known as the Seven Sisters. Their home is in the Pleiades constellation. In Greece, these same seven were called the Flock of Doves. They were known as the Seven Daughters of Aphrodite, or Venus. As Isis, she was called The Queen of Peace, or The Dove of Peace. Everywhere the 'dove' has long been a symbol of the DOMA (whose seven leaders find the analogy very flattering). So, the Dove who came down from the heavens said Jesus was her son, and in him she was well pleased.
The next event is probably the most important event in the life of Jesus, yet it is nearly always overshadowed by the Resurrection. It is almost never interpreted correctly, and therefore much of its importance is never revealed.
Matthew 4:1 'Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2: And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. 3: And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4: But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5: Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6: And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7: Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8: Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;9: And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10: Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11: Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.'
This was a turning point in the life of Jesus, son of Mary. The DOMA had taught him all they could. But there was one thing that all their advanced technology, and all their advanced learning, could not teach, nor determine. Did Jesus have the internal character necessary to fulfill the task that was expected of him? The above verses are the story of how the last lesson in Jesus' education was given. A final test to determine his worthiness. Jesus knew who he was. It is important that you realize the full magnitude of what I have just said. Jesus knew who and what he was! He knew it was within his power, to take over the entire Earth, and rule it anyway he saw fit. There was no Earth government or military, that could have stood in his way. He knew that the DOMA would protect him from all harm. He could have had anything, riches power, slaves, women. There was nothing in this world, at that particular moment, that was beyond his reach.
These are exactly the thoughts that went through his mind as he fasted in the desert. Inside of this great man, a battle was taking place. Every desire that could be conceived was but an arm's length away, should he desire it. He thought of how the crowds would adore him, follow him, worship him. He could become a God, if he so chose. There was indeed, a devil who tempted Jesus that day. It is the same 'Satan' that exists in each and every one of us on this planet, and tempts us in just the same way. It is the devil of our own desires, our own pride, our own lusts. The 'Satan' that was defeated on this day, was the one of his own mind, his own desires. Jesus chose his path in life that day, and the man who could have had everything, became the man who would give everything. . . to humanity. In that moment, if someone had come back in time from far in the future, and said to Jesus "all that you did only resulted in one persons' life being helped," Jesus would have looked them straight in the eye and said "it was all worth it.'
The DOMA gained something that day also. This man called Jesus was living proof that humans on Earth could overcome the devils of their own minds, and take the next step in their evolution, becoming true human beings. Is it any wonder that the Dove should look down from the skies at her son, and in him be well pleased?
The education of Jesus was now complete, the testing over. He got an "A" for the course.
Now, we are finally going to talk about the adult Jesus. I know that it took us quite a will to reach this point, but it was vital for you to see the connection to Isis that existed in the Hebrew ancestry of this man. If I were to simply have come out and told Jesus worked for the DOMA, a.k.a. Ru HA, a.k.a. Ashera, a.k.a. Isis, without giving you the historical foundation, you would not believe all that I am about to tell you. So, without further delay, let's see what Jesus the son of Mary, was all about.
Let's look at a brief summary of his life. He was born to a virgin. He taught a religion known as The Way. He did a lot of miraculous stuff, healings, walking on water, raising the dead, etc. He was tried and convicted of rebellion. He was crucified and died. He rose from the dead and was seen by his followers.
Wow! Now, that was some life, was it not? You might think that the rest of this message will deal with the philosophy that Jesus taught. That I will go through his major teachings and explain or expand on them. I won't be doing that. The teachings of Jesus are there in the Bible for all to read. In future Way messages, we will look at some of them, but not now. What I want to show you now, is who and what gave this man the power to do all that he did. I want to show you who started Jesus' church, who his disciples really were. And most important of all, determine once and for all, if he really was not just the son of God, but 'God himself.' Notice I just used the male qualifier to identify God. I have already told you my opinion on whether God is male or female.
What I want to do in the rest of this message is find out if, indeed, the person who sent Jesus was a male or female deity, or even a deity at all. By the time I get through, I want to have proven the following to you. That the God who sent Jesus was not a male, and further was not even a deity. (Even though she wasn't a deity, her intentions were to bring mankind the word of God) That it was the DOMA who sent Jesus. That it was a female-based religion, complete with priestesses, virgins, etc. That the disciples of Jesus were all women. And that his movement was founded by, run by, protected by, funded by, and directed by, the priestesses of Ashera, or Isis. Lastly, I want to show you that he was a man, a very special and holy prophet of God. Nevertheless, he was a man, and not a God. Some of you who are totally dedicated to your faith as you have been taught it, will not believe any of this no matter what proofs I give you. That's okay. I support whatever you want to believe, and your right to do so. Besides you're not really the main target of this message anyway. The main target, or group of people, I and she who sent me, want to reach are the Daughters of Earth. There are great things in store for them, and this is merely their wake-up call. Now let's get to work.
Was Jesus God? That's a fair question. A simple question. If true, then it should have an equally simple answer. I won't accept the answer from anybody who says they knew him, or anybody who says God told them. I want to hear it from his own mouth, and in his own words. Let's ask him right now. Let's get this settled right from the start.
Matthew 19:17 'And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.'
Mark 10:18 'And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.'
Luke 18:19 'And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.'
These are supposed to be Jesus' own words. As you can see, I have included all three variations, from the three separate writers. You will note that all three agree on what was said, agree on what Jesus himself told you. Jesus has just been asked by a man about the requirements to obtain eternal life. Good question, is it not? He addressed Jesus as "GOOD MASTER.' Now, my friends, I told you that Jesus knew exactly who and what he was. He knew that men would eventually mistakenly try to idolize him, to worship him. He tried in this verse to set the record straight right from the start.
He had been teaching that ALL MANKIND were sinners, or not wholly good. That no matter how holy, or wise, each and everyone of us has some portion of bad in us. He said that there was only one force in this universe that contained no evil or darkness, and that was the great spirit, or God. It is only natural that when this man called Jesus good, he immediately corrected him by saying "why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God." This says it in plain, easy to understand language, does it not? I have heard people try to interpret this in many different ways. They twist it, and sugar-coat it, and do everything within their power, to change its meaning to fit their own belief. Its meaning is clear, as Jesus intended it to be. He, as a man, was not good. Only God was good. Simple, to the point, and without question, his own opinion of this question. His answer to you for all time as to whether he was a man, or God. There are none good, but ONE. God. There are none so blind as those who will not see.
One last point about his answer. Remember that the question was about how to obtain eternal life. Did Jesus answer him, 'believe I am GOD?' Did he say, 'believe that I died on the cross for your sins?' Did he say worship me and only me? NO! And NO! And NO! Don't you think, that if the above statements were true, he would have said so? He did not. All he said was necessary, was to obey the Commandments, the Word of God. He was not God, and said so himself. He said so plainly, and yet many wouldn't listen.
How do you think he feels to look down at the Earth over all these years since leaving, and see all the people who were murdered, in his name, for simply believing what he himself had said? That he was not God. Every one of you is a daughter, or son, of God. The DOMA, all humans, and others of the Collective, are the Children of God. The Muslim, the Catholic, the Hindu, even the man on death row, these are all the Children of God. Was Jesus the son of God? Yes, as are we all. Was Jesus God? Yes, as God is all things, God is everything that was, is , and will be. God is all of us, but no one of us is God, contained, confined, diminished. It is the truest and greatest irony that the children who bare his name should cause him the most pain and anguish. I will leave this topic and its final word to Jesus. To him, the final say. . .
Matthew 7:21 'Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.'
Who were the disciples of Jesus? Was it as we have been taught? Twelve ordinary men? Were the closest to him all men? No. In fact, his true disciples were ALL women. There were men that followed him, but they were not in the inner circle. The ones closest to him, his disciples, his financial supporters, those he truly loved, his favorites, were all women. Why? Because as I have shown you, he was raised and taught by the priestesses. His teachings were founded on the belief of a Goddess-centered religion. These women, or priestesses, went with him everywhere. They founded and supported Jesus and The Way. Women, and the DOMA who helped them, founded the religion we know today as Christianity. But that which we call Christianity today, has little in common with the original Way, the religion of the Goddess, the religion Jesus taught. I want to show you some verses now that will prove to you all I've said. I have already given you the 'dove' story. So, there should be no doubt of who sent Jesus. It was the Dove, the Goddess, the DOMA. But what of the priestesses? Who were these women and what part did they play in his life? Let's find out. The rest of this Way message has true importance to all the women of this planet, and it is to them, dedicated.
Luke 8:1 'And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, 2: And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, 3: And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.'
Jesus is now traveling around, teaching. In the above verse, it says that he had twelve disciples. We have been taught that these twelve were all men, and that is true. They were trained to spread the word of God by Jesus himself. Why were they all men? Because the society to which they were sent, was male-dominated. A woman would not have been able to go where these disciples needed to go. But, so that no one would be able to use this as a weapon to further patriarchal control, their number was set at twelve. It is a code of sorts whose meaning is made to identify who really sent them. There were twelve disciples and one teacher. In all there were Thirteen, the Holy number of Isis. What is really important in the above verses is the mention of "certain women.' These women, as you will soon find out, were the priestesses of Isis, the DOMA, the Daughters of Earth.
The story of the women who followed Jesus around the Holy Land, is one of the greatest secrets contained in the Bible. It is a story of intrigue, romance, betrayal, murder , salvation, religion and the word of God. It is one of the most fascinating of all stories, to say the least. Because of what you have been taught concerning these women's roles, and the low status that women were later to be held in, the real truth of the influence they had on these events, has never fully been understood. Let's change all that right now. I already showed you in the genealogy of Jesus, how the DOMA made use of their priestesses to change the course of Biblical history. Nowhere was this done moreso than during the life of Jesus.
Most of us think of the women who accompanied him to be poor, virtuous women, who mildly stood in the shadow of this great man. At leastm, that's what the good old patriarchal fathers want you to believe. The truth is, that they were running the entire show. The truth is, they were women of high nobility, power and wealth. After all, they were the priestesses of what was then, one of the most powerful religions in the world. Still, the image we have is of sterile women, wrapped tightly from head to toe in the robes of chastity. This is the image that the early church fathers wanted you to have. Remember that the early fathers were not really sure if females were really human or not. I'm not joking about this either. I suggest you read some of their early literature. Their opinion of women will become abundantly clear. So, who were these women that Jesus spent so much time with? To start with, his mother was a priestess (a daughter of the Moses, or a daughter of Aaron), her mother was the high priestess Anna, who lived at the temple in Jerusalem. In terms of religious hierarchy, this would put her at the near-royal level. Let's look at the other women who were with Jesus.
Luke 23:27 'And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 28: But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29: For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30: Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31: For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?'
In these verses, Jesus is on his way to be executed. A large crowd of followers are with him. Notice that it says "people" to talk about the crowd, but further breaks this down by adding "and of women." Now think about this, my friends. The 'people' were composed of men and women. What made this particular group of women so special, that they had to be distinguished from the women in the 'people' group? The reason is simple. They were Jesus' disciples, the priestesses.
Now, I want to demonstrate another example of how the early fathers changed the meaning of certain words when they translated the Bible. You're going to love this one. The original word from which "women" was translated is the Greek word "gunes," pronounced goo-nays. It means 'wives.' In the Goddess religion, it is often the duty of the High Priest, in this case Jesus, to be the symbolic husband of the Goddess, and also the priestesses. So, it is clear to see that the original clergy of Jesus, were women priestesses, not manly priests. The priests stole this role from these women. That is why the church call's itself the "bride" of Christ, and its priests, as symbolized by their rings, are Jesus' 'wives.' Sort of pseudo-spiritual homosexuality.
Now, here's a secret that the DOMA have been waiting a long time to drop on you. Remember the fish symbol I told you about, what we call Pisces? It's called the 'sign of NUN,' or the 'fish of Isis.' The original priestesses who served Christ are still here today. They were simply absorbed, and then subordinated to a lower position in the Church. They are called NUNS. They are those among the Nuns who remember who they were. It is their secret, of which not even the Pope is privy. To further my point, who is it that Jesus addresses in the above verses? Does he say, 'listen my fellow manly, men-type disciples?' No. He says "Daughters." The Daughter of Jerusalem, the Daughters of the Queen of Peace. Isn't this great stuff? If you're a woman, yes. If you're a cardinal, well. . . . They had their chance with Fatima.
Okay. Now that we have established who the real disciples of Jesus were, let's look at the upper echelon of this priestesshood. The top ladies in Jesus' church of the Way.
Matthew 27: 55 'And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him. 56: Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children. 57: When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple.'
There are two special women, whose association with Jesus has been talked about, argued about, denied about, lied about, and most of all wondered about. The above verse introduces the first of these two women. Mary Magdalene. She is one of the big three. Mary his mother, Mary Magdalene, and. . . . ? Well we'll save the last one. I want it to be a surprise. Mary Magdalene is the most hated woman on the face of this planet. Who hated her? The early church fathers and some of the priests today. Why? Simple. She was Jesus' girlfriend. What!!? You don't believe me, do you? After all that I've shown you , you still don't believe me when I say something like this. It's okay. I want you to doubt and question everything I, or anyone else says. I, unlike the priests whom I speak of, don't demand your blind faith, Just your ear and an open mind. Let's explore this in more detail now. Before we begin, realize that Mary Magdalene was loved deeply by Jesus. She was his favorite disciple, his beloved.
John 19:25: 'Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 26: When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!27: Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.'
The 'disciple whom he loved!' Who is he talking to here? Mary Magdalene, his favorite disciple. He is asking her to look after his mother after he is gone. Notice a little more of the founding fathers handiwork? It says, Mary was taken "unto HIS home." Now, which of these three Mary's was really a man in disguise? Right you are. They changed it to hide Jesus' love for this disciple.
John 21:20: 'Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?'
Who is the disciple following, and why did this disciple place their head on Jesus' chest during supper? A very important fact to note, is that Peter, seeing this particular disciple behind him, still asks Jesus who the traitor is. This implies that this disciple was above suspicion. Now, . . . . who could it be. . . . hmmm? Let's try a little something here. I want you to picture the scene in your mind. It's the last supper and gathered in this room and seated around the table are all these men. These are very manly type men, too. Now pick one. It doesn't matter which one. Let's say Mark. Now picture these men all sitting around eating except for Mark, who is so upset he slides up next to Jesus and, leaning his large hairy face on Jesus' chest, begins to cry softly. Not a very pretty picture, is it? Try this one on for size. Substitute Mary Magdalene as the one with her head on his chest, softly crying. Is it any wonder then, when Peter sees her following behind Jesus, as many women of the time did, that he would automatically rule her out as the traitor? Of course he would. In his own words, he said Jesus loved her. And you had better believe that she loved him. I told you the early fathers hated her. Do you now see why? So, who was this woman who wielded so much power over Jesus' heart and the lives of his disciples? Let's find out right now.
Mark 16:9: 'Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.'
WOW! Seven whole devils! It must have been a bit crowded in there, wouldn't you say? Before I explain to you what this means, look at what this verse really is telling you. Jesus has been put to death and is now risen. If you were a man, and you had somebody you loved , a woman, maybe your wife, who, if you were brought back to life, would you go see first? Jesus came to her first, because he loved her. Why would so many have such a problem with this beautiful moment in the lives of these two people? I guess it does kind of rub the whole 'Jesus is God' argument the wrong way, doesn't it? After all, this man is supposed to be God himself. How could he defile himself so, and with a harlot like Mary Magdalene? If they only knew.
Well let's get back to these 'seven devils.' Now where have you heard the number seven before? That's right, the seven Hathors, the Seven Sisters, the Seven leaders of the DOMA. Remember this number for the woman we are going to discuss next also has the number seven associated with her. The DOMA are the 'seven devils' the church fathers wanted you to think Jesus kicked out of Mary. The name Mary Magdalene means 'She of the Temple Towers.' What temple? The Temple of Jerusalem, where she worshipped the Goddess. She was one of the seven high priestesses. She was called the Sacred Harlot, or Divine Prostitute. Her duty, quite simply, was to play the role of the Goddess and serve the needs of the high priest who played the part of the Goddess's male husband. Today, we think of the word 'prostitute' as a woman who sells her sexual services for money. The oldest profession is what it's called. Other words that mean the same thing are 'whore,' 'charities,' 'Graces,' 'Muses,' and sometimes 'furies.' Ishtar, the Star, was called the Great Whore. What you must understand, is that there is a difference between a common street prostitute and a Divine, or temple, prostitute. They were called the Virgins of the Temple. They remained unmarried, and only engaged in sexual acts to perform a ritual, or to give birth to sacred children who would then be trained for some higher mission in life.
The 'temple prostitutes' wore veils over their faces as a symbol of their holy status. The veils were also worn so that only divine chosen men would look upon their faces. The point I am trying to make here, is that far from being a stigma against these women, it was viewed as a very high status, or divine, profession. Some of the most important women in early Christian history were divine prostitutes. These have included Theodora, the wife of Justinian, and St. Helena, mother of Constantine. Were it not for the influence of these women and many more like them, Christianity would not exist today. Mary Magdalene was one such divine virgin, and she was the beloved, or chosen of Jesus.
These sexual rites that took place have been portrayed as mass orgies, when in truth they were sacred, and in most cases, single partner acts of worship. The early fathers realized the power these rituals had, and therefore saw them as a direct threat to their power. For they represented the one thing that God had chosen for women, alone. The ultimate act of these virgins was the divine act of creation itself, birth. It was a powerful because it represented God's very power of creation, a power they could never have. It was suppressed and transformed into an ugly act only fit for demons, animals and women. It was the Original Sin. But sexual rituals were only one of the services provided by these virgins. They were also called midwives and healers. It was a sacred practice among some, to use their spittle to heal the blind. Just as Jesus later did. Another was to bring people into harmony with God and the Earth through various rituals.
Water was one of the most common of these ritualistic tools. It was used because everyone who is born, is born from the water of their mother's womb. All water on Earth then, was of the Goddess. Stella Maris means Star of the Sea, or water. Priestesses would sprinkle or plunge their followers into water as a symbolic gesture of being born a second time from the Goddess. All those who claim to be born again or baptized with water, are in fact performing one of the oldest and most sacred acts of Goddess worship there is. So then, this is the nature of Jesus' favorite disciple. I want to introduce one other disciple which will help you understand what is to come a little later.
Luke 8:3: 'And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.'
Here is but another reference to the women who were supporting Jesus' ministry. You should have noticed by now, that there was extensive use of the names, Mary and Anna. This is because it is the name of the Goddess, Mari-Anna-Ishtar, and other names of the Goddess. These represented different names of the seven DOMA leaders. It is nearly impossible to distinguish from historical records, which particular Goddess or DOMA was being referred to, at any given moment. They were interchanged and different names were applied to different Goddesses all the time. The only key to separating them is by their functions, or main types of action. For instance, Mara, or Isis, is the leader of the DOMA. The other Goddesses or DOMA were either involved in DOMA genetic research or in DOMA military/security forces. The Goddess Kali, or Hathor, was in charge of all military and security forces. Asherah or Ashteroth can be the name of any of these DOMA but was usually referring to Isis. Just thought you might find that helpful, now back to the verses.
The woman we are most interested in, from the above verses, is Joanna. More importantly, her husband's employer, Herod. This identifies her as being part of the Court of Herod. Herod is the name of a family that was given rule of Palestine (Israel) by the Romans. The first we are concerned with is Herod, The Great. He was in power at the time of Jesus' birth. Although the Herod's were not Hebrew, they followed Hebrew law and sought to help them rebuild Jerusalem. Their main contribution was the rebuilding of the Great Temple at Jerusalem, which had been destroyed. History has portrayed the Herods as wicked and ruthless men, who hated Jews and holy men. As with many people or things in the Bible, if the early writers went out of their way to portray someone or something as evil, it usually means one thing. They were trying to hide something.
With the family of Herod, they were trying to hide a big something, the biggest and darkest secret of the New Testament. In truth, the Herod men were no less wicked than any other ruler of the time and may have been a little better to tell you the truth. Let's look in the Herod closet, and see what we can find. Herod The Great is seen as the evil tyrant who ordered the slaughter of every Hebrew firstborn, in an attempt, we are told, to kill the baby Jesus. Back in Bible times, it seems like you were not considered a true leader until you had slaughtered a few thousand firstborn children. Did Herod the Great order the slaughter of all these children? Of course not. He wasn't stupid, nor did he hate the Hebrews. He was rebuilding the Great temple for them. Does this sound like an anti-Hebrew to you? Now, I'm not saying he was a saint, by any means. The lifestyle of the rulers of the ancient world would have made today's political leaders cringe. There were sex scandals, money taking, assassinations, you know, just like politics today. The important thing is did he hate Jesus? Did he try to kill all those babies? No, and No. As ruler of Palestine, he would not have risked a rebellion, by killing all those children to get one man. He wasn't stupid. Rome would have had his head on a platter, for such a tactical blunder. But let's not take my word for it, let's look at what the Bible says.
Matthew 2:8: 'And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.'
Sounds like he really wanted to kill him, doesn't it? Herod was well aware of what the Goddess's priestesses were up to. How? Herod The Great married ten wives. Two of which were named Marianne. One was related to the legendary Maccabees, the other was the daughter of Simon, the High priest. The other wife is really interesting. Her name was Cleopatra of Jerusalem. Try to guess who she was worshipping. Yes, Isis. We are led to believe that Herod The Great became jealous of this baby who was supposed to become king of the Hebrews. This supposedly caused Mary to flee into Egypt for safety. The truth is, they went there of their own accord. They were not fleeing. They had been invited, and chose to go. In Luke's tale of the birth of Jesus, none of this even gets mentioned. So, use your good judgment and decide which you want to believe.
This whole episode was designed to build an image in your mind, right from the start of the 'Herods as evil and vile killers' tale. Add to that the image of the Herods not connected in any way, to Jesus. As the above verse told us, one of Jesus' main supporters, or disciples, is right in Herod's court. So, what are they trying to cover up? What event happens later, and why does it require that you think Herod and all those around him are evil? Let's find out, shall we?
When Jesus begins his ministry, one of Herod's sons is now leader of Palestine. His name is Herod Antipas. This particular Herod, like any other ruler of his day, was no angel either. One of the biggest scandals of his reign involved his marriages. His first wife was the daughter of an Arab/Persian King named Aretas. This daughter and the king himself were very friendly with a man named John the Baptist, as we shall see later. Herod Antipas divorced the daughter of Aretas and married his niece, Herodias. This was considered a great outrage by the Arab king. He fought Herod Antipas in a small war, and inflicted heavy damage as punishment. Herodias was involved with the priestesses of the temple of Jerusalem. Her daughter was also a priestess, a very important and high ranking priestess, as will be seen later. At Herod's birthday, she is said to have danced before Herod and his guests. It was the dance of the Seven Veils. You are led by the early church fathers to believe that all this dance was, was a pagan-like strip tease. That she simply danced around removing each veil, until naked. What they did not tell you is that this daughter was one of the temple Virgins, a priestess, or Divine Prostitute. Why, and how do I know this? The dance is the key. First, where have you heard the number 'seven' before? Right. The seven DOMA. This dance had nothing to do with a simple strip tease. It was one of the most sacred rituals of remembrance performed by these priestesses. It was a reenactment of a very famous event in the life of a particular Goddess. This is the Goddess Ishtar, The Star. It involved her rescue of her husband Tammuz from the underworld, or forces of Satan. The actual events of what took place is too long to go into now. But this brief summary of the legend should give you a clue.
The legend says that Ishtar went down to the underworld to retrieve Tammuz. At each of the seven gates, she was forced to remove a piece of clothing. By the time she stood before the ruler of the underworld, she was naked or defenseless. Even so she was able to rescue her Tammuz and return to the world of light. In the dance that Herod's daughter did, each veil represented Ishtar's passing of the seven gates. It was a ritual not only to remember the heroic act of this Goddess, but to express the thought that true love overcomes all things, even the power of the underworld. So, as you can see, this daughter was indeed a priestess, as was her mother Herodias. In fact, the whole marriage of Herodias to Herod, was sanctioned by the priestesses as a means to gain political power which would be needed in the days to come. These are the very same priestesses who are in charge of the two DOMA children, John the Baptist and Jesus. The plan was to gain political control of Palestine, and for it to become the staging point for a religious movement that would sweep into the Roman empire, followed by the rest of the world. John and Jesus, would together bring God's Word to the world. It was a great plan and would have worked flawlessly, but for one very unexpected and disastrous turn of events.
Mark 6:17: 'For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her. 18: For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife. 19: Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not: 20: For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.'
The above verse is very important. From it, we can see that Herod, counter to what you were led to believe, knew John was sent to perform a holy mission. He thought John a good man, and listened to him gladly, it says. We are also told that John opposed Herod's marriage to Herodias (but it was not for the reasons stated above). John was very close to the King Aretas. His followers would later settle and remain in Arab lands. His opposition to Herodias threatened the carefully laid political plan of the priestesses. John had become a threat to all that they were trying to do. The steps the priestesses took to remove that threat are below.
Mark 6:21: 'And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee; 22: And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee. 23: And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom. 24: And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist. 25: And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist. 26: And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her. 27: And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison, 28: And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29: And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb. 30: And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. 31: And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32: And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.'
Wow!. . . WOW! I told you the lives of these people were better than any soap opera. Look at the above verses very carefully. Herod has promised his daughter anything, even half his kingdom. He knew of her and the other priestesses desire for political power. Herodias consults with her daughter and decides that John is too dangerous to be allowed to live. Since he opposed them, so would his followers. They decide the only way to protect the entire project is to kill him, and remove his influence completely. Now notice that Herod is very sad at having to do this. Not only from his affinity for John, but he is also worried about retaliation from his followers, and from King Aretas. Nevertheless, he carries out her wishes. Now notice very, very, carefully the next part.
'And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.' These are the priestesses who are now telling Jesus why it was necessary to kill John. Notice that the disciples who took John's body were John's disciples, not Jesus'. The disciple and the apostles are two separate groups here. The taking of John's body was not the actions the apostles were referring to. It was his execution, and what they had taught was a lesson to all those who would oppose them, not to interfere with their plans.
Do you now understand why the followers of John the Baptist have been saying for almost 2,000 years that Jesus followed a Female Goddess, and why they think he was evil? This is the darkest secret the church has ever kept. So that there will be no doubt in your minds that what I say is true, let me give you a verse right from the Bible itself. But first, you need one small bit of information. Have you wondered looking at all these verses, why Herod's daughter is not mentioned by name? All important people are in every other place in the Bible. Why not her? She is certainly an important person. She was responsible for John's death. Why did they remove her name? The reason will become evident in just a moment. It is another attempt by the church fathers to hide the truth from you. This one, however, can only be viewed as stupidity. Can you imagine that they actually thought that by removing her name from scripture you would never find out who she was and that no one would go find out her name on their own? Let's burst their bubble of ignorance, once and for all. Her name is Salome. And here is why they didn't want you to know.
Mark 15:40 'There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome...'
Mark 16:1 'And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.'
The Salome in the above verses, one of Jesus' most loved and trusted disciples, is the same Salome we have been talking about. The cat's out of the bag, so don't let anyone try to tell you otherwise. If you really have doubts, just go ask one of John's followers. They certainly won't lie to you.
It's funny how one's entire perception of events and people can be changed in a single moment, with but the mention of a single woman's name. Perhaps the pen really is mightier than the sword, after all. Thus began the ministry of Jesus, son of Mary. Out of respect, and as a tribute to John's followers, whom I respect and care deeply for, I will let John The Baptist, have the final words on this entire affair.
John 3:27: 'John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28: Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29: He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30: He must increase, but I must decrease.'
Peace be with you John. For never before nor since, was there a finer man of God's Word.
