Bill McDonald's General Composite of the Roswell Spacecraft

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

Part 2 – the Khazars

The 13th Tribe – the Khazars

“Arthur Koestler called his work "The Thirteenth Tribe" because he believed the Khazars were non-Israelites who had set themselves up to be the same as Israelites alongside the Twelve Tribes of Israel. There are in effect Thirteen Israelite Tribes. The Khazars were of Israelite descent. By making themselves Tribe 13 the Khazars became what they really had been supposed to be all along.” - The British-Israel-World Federation


The 13th Tribe (Manasseh)
http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/13trindx.htm

This book traces the history of the ancient Khazar Empire, a major but almost forgotten power in Eastern Europe, which in the Dark Ages became converted to Judaism. Khazaria was finally wiped out by the forces of Genghis Khan, but evidence indicates that the Khazars themselves migrated to Poland and formed the cradle of Western Jewry.

The Khazars' sway extended from the Black Sea to the Caspian, from the Caucasus to the Volga, and they were instrumental in stopping the Muslim onslaught against Byzantium, the eastern jaw of the gigantic pincer movement that in the West swept across northern Africa and into Spain.

In the second part of this book, "The Heritage," Mr. Koestler speculates about the ultimate faith of the Khazars and their impact on the racial composition and social heritage of modern Jewry. He produces a large body of meticulously detailed research in support of a theory that sounds all the more convincing for the restraint with which it is advanced. Yet should this theory be confirmed, the term "anti-Semitism" would become void of meaning, since, as Mr. Koestler writes, it is based "on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated."


The information below is from the British-Israel website and shows the 13th tribe has been created: Ephraim is Great Britain and Manasseh is the United States. The British royal family claims to be from the Tribe of Benjamin.

The Khazars - Israelite Tribes in Exile
http://britam.org/khazars.html

The Khazars were a powerful people who once ruled over portions of Russia and Eastern Europe. They (or at least many of their leaders), converted to Judaism and were eventually defeated and disappeared. Their descendants were either assimilated amongst the Jews or became Sabbath-keeping and other “divergent” Christians, many (if not most), of whom, migrated to the west and to North America. Other descendants of the Khazars may be scattered throughout the former area of the U.S.S.R. and in different parts of Europe. A knowledge of the Khazars is useful for several reasons. Evidence exists that the Khazars were descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel. There is also proof that they were related to peoples in Western Europe. It follows that evidence connecting the ancestors of some West European groups to Israel is strengthened when cognizance is taken of the Israelite ancestry of their Khazar brothers.


EPHRAIM AND MANASSEH
http://www.ensignmessage.com/archives/ephraim.html

To fully appreciate the significance of the blessing of Joseph's two sons, we need to understand some background with regard to both history and prophecy in relation to Israel. The promises to the tribes of Israel were specifically reserved for the "Last Days", or "Christian Era" - Genesis 49:1, Hebrews 1:1,2. The rebellion of the ten tribes in the North, against the Throne of David, in the time of Solomon's son, Rehoboam, is foretold in 1 Kings 11:9-13, and 29-32.

This northern ten-tribe division retained the name Israel. The tribe of Judah in the South was granted the loyal support of the tribe of Benjamin, and was collectively known as Judah.

Understanding this division of Israel and Judah is essential, in order to rightly apply prophecy. 2 Kings 17 gives a summary of how, because of sin, God took ten-tribe Israel away from the throne of Judah, and eventually caused them to go into exile in Assyria. They did not return!

The fact is, both Ezra and Nehemiah record that only 42,360 of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, returned to Judea from exile in Babylon, together with a "mixed multitude" see Ezra 2:64, Nehemiah 7:66, 13:3. From these, the Jews of Jesus' day descended.

It is clear therefore, that to identify Israel in both history and prophecy we have to distinguish Israel from the Jews. It was prophesied that Israel would lose their identity; God referred to them as "not my people", in other words, a people who would not be identified as Israel (Hosea 1:10, 2:23), yet we may identify Israel by the destiny they were to fulfill! I Chronicles 5:1 tells us the "Birthright was given unto the Sons of Joseph". This means that, through the descendants of the Sons of Joseph, God would fulfill the great promises of Israel's greatness! That greatness included the promise given to Jacob in Genesis 35:11:

"I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply: a Nation and a Company of Nations shall be of thee, and Kings shall come out of thy loins... "

Clearly Israel was to be a Nation with a Monarchy, which would expand to become a "Company of Nations"!

The account of the blessing of Joseph's sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, is recorded in Genesis Chapter 48. It is staggering that Jacob chose his grandsons, the sons of Joseph to be bearers of the Birthright. That birthright was the passing on of the promises given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob himself! This included the promise given to Jacob that his seed would become a "Nation and Company of Nations"! The reason was that, though they were actually his grandsons, Jacob adopted the sons of Joseph as his own sons. It was, in fact, the highest honour he could give to Joseph, that his sons would not only be equal with the other sons of Jacob, but would have the birthright. Yet Jacob went further than this. Although Manasseh was the elder of the two lads, whilst giving both Ephraim and Manasseh a share of the birthright, Jacob gave the firstborn-portion to Ephraim! In fact, Ephraim is God's firstborn! (Jeremiah 31:9)


The Khazars, Manasseh, and the USA
http://www.britam.org/khazariamanaseh.html

"The Khazars. Tribe 13" shows that the Khazars became a powerful and important people. They converted to Judaism. They had originated in Israel as Israelites but lost their Israelite Identity. By converting and identifying anew as Jews they regained the ability to express their Israelite ancestry.

The Khazars were at first to be found in places where the Lost Tribes had been exiled to. They were first noticed in Azerbaijan and in Hara to the east. These were places the Assyrians had transferred Israelite Exiles from Samaria to. They were also found to the south and north of the Caucasus, and in the regions of the Don and Dneister Rivers that were identified with the River of Sambation. According to the Sages both the Caucasus Mountains and the Sambation River were places the Ten Tribes had been taken.

In both these areas do we find the Khazars at the beginning of their history. Archaeological and historical records concerning peoples who had lived in the areas of the Khazars before the Khazars appeared are also consistent with Israelite origins. Before the Khazars there had been the Scythians, the Agathyrsi, and the Gothic forerunners of the Orenburg Culture. The Scythians had emerged from the Middle East area while the Orenburg Culture on the Volga River derived from Assyrian and Persian antecedents.

The Assyrians had exiled the Ten Tribes. The Assyrians had taken them to several areas including the "Cities of the Medes" (2-Kings 17:6). This included Azerbaijan which had once been part of Media and became a Khazar center and probable starting-point.

The areas of Khazar settlement such as the city of Tanais on the Don River had had a track-record of Judaizing tendencies. Jewish tradition supported by the Bible traced the Khazars to the Tribe of Simeon and the Princes of Manaseh (1-Chronicles 4:38-43). These had gone to Seir of Edom and settled there. The regions of Armenia and Azerbaijan fit this description. The Khazars converted to Judaism in stages. They transformed their previous values and lifestyle. Previously they had imitated Arab coinage and used coins that had praises to Mohamed inscribed on them. A Khazar coin found in Sweden is based on an Arab prototype like previous coins. This time however the inscription says, 'Moses is the Messenger of God'.

There were Thirteen Tribes of Israel but only twelve are counted at any one time. Tribe 13 is still around. Tribe 13 is Manasseh who sometimes is counted separately and at other times as part of Joseph. Some of Manasseh went to the Khazars. We had the Sabir Khazars being also named after Manasseh as well as the names Manas and Machir (first-born son of Manasseh) being taken up by non-Israelite peoples who were subservient to the Khazars and bound to them.

The sons of Israel were Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulon, Gad, Asher, Naphtali, Dan, Joseph, and Benjamin. Manasseh and Ephraim were the sons of Joseph. Manasseh was blessed after Ephraim and it was promised that he too will become great (Genesis 48:19). Manasseh was blessed to become one of the most important tribes of them all. Nevertheless, in a sense Manasseh was added on. Manasseh was number thirteen. Manasseh is the Thirteenth Tribe, Tribe 13.

The Khazars according to Jewish Tradition were in fact descendants of some Jews from Judah along with groups from the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. Simeon was especially prominent but the ruling group came from Manasseh! This tradition is basically a valid one and confirmed by historical sources.

Since the Khazar rulers evidently came from Manasseh then the Khazars could be considered the Thirteenth Tribe! Not all the Tribe of Manasseh became Khazars. Most of them went westward but some stayed behind, created the Khazar Empire, and converted to Judaism. Those who went west beforehand continued onwards and their descendants played a major role in the founding and formation of the United States.

The Khazars on the steppes of Eurasia had given rise to a Kingdom that rescued Jews from their oppressors and gave them hope, respect, and equal opportunity. This is what the descendants of Manasseh along with other Israelites did then. Later it would be the offspring of that other part of Manasseh in the USA who would help refugees, including Jews, from other lands to escape from persecution and receive equal opportunity. Through helping the State of Israel the USA has enabled the Jews to withstand their enemies. The USA has helped the Jewish State of Israel survive and flourish. The USA represents Manasseh. So did the Khazars. History does repeat itself.

Groups in the British Isles who are identified as descended from Clans of Manasseh were to be found in specific areas from whom came more than 80% of the early British settlers of the USA and it was these who determined the national characteristics. The same applies for entities in Continental Europe (such as in Germany and Holland) who had always been separate from the peoples they lived amongst and who moved EN MASSE to the USA.

2. Manasseh was to become great after Ephraim!

The Bible (Genesis 48:8-17) tells us that Joseph brought his two sons Ephraim and Manasseh to receive a blessing from Jacob. Manasseh was the older and Joseph placed him to his left facing the right-hand side of Jacob. Ephraim was the younger so Joseph placed him to his right facing the left-hand side of Jacob. Jacob however crossed his hands over placing his right hand on the head of Ephraim and his left on the hand of Manasseh.

Jacob placed Ephraim before Manasseh. He did not however change the position of the boys. Manasseh remained on his right and Ephraim on his left. There are Rabbinical explanations that say the crossing over of the hands did not change the relative importance of the two but it did change the time schedule. From now on Ephraim was to receive his blessing BEFORE Manasseh.

Ephraim was to the right of Joseph facing the left side of Jacob.
Manasseh was to the left of Joseph facing the right side of Jacob.

Arthur Koestler called his work "The Thirteenth Tribe" because he believed the Khazars were non-Israelites who had set themselves up to be the same as Israelites alongside the Twelve Tribes of Israel. There are in effect Thirteen Israelite Tribes. The Khazars were of Israelite descent. By making themselves Tribe 13 the Khazars became what they really had been supposed to be all along. They really were the Thirteenth Tribe.

Part 3 – the Lost Tribe of Dan

The Lost Tribe of Dan
http://watch.pair.com/dan.html

Samson, a Nazarite of the tribe of Dan, judged Israel during the period of Philistine domination. At the feast celebrating his marriage to a Philistine woman, Samson proposed a riddle to the Philistines: "Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness." Judges 14:14 On the seventh day of the feast, the importunate bride extracted from Samson the interpretation of the riddle and related its meaning to her people, viz., that the carcass of a young lion which Samson had killed with his bare hands had attracted a swarm of bees who produced honey therein. Samson paid the wager by slaying thirty Philistines -- after which his wife was taken from him. Angered by their treachery, Samson avenged himself by slaughtering many more Philistines and eventually the Philistine lords.

Several obscure prophecies in the Bible point to the fact that the tribe of Dan will produce the Antichrist. In the context of these prophecies, Samson's riddle may be a prophecy that the descendants of the tribe of Dan will one day try to destroy the tribe of Judah in jealous revenge for God's judgment on their idolatry. From the carcass of the young lion [Judaism] the tribe of Dan [typified by the bees] will attempt to produce a golden age [symbolized by honey]. The conspiracy of the tribe of Dan, aka the Synagogue of Satan, to steal the messianic birthright from the tribe of Judah and establish a false messianic kingdom in Israel is given more detailed treatment in our report, Mystery Babylon: Catholic or Jewish?

To suggest that the Antichrist will be from one of the tribes of Israel is likely to incur accusations of "anti-Semitism" from those who would like to conceal this fact. However, we believe that the Biblical admonition to bless the descendants of Abraham [Gen. 12:3] includes exposing the identity of the man of sin who will lead many Jews to their destruction.

The Merovingians, who plan to rule the world from their future throne at Jerusalem, claim to come from the tribe of Judah through Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. However, the weight of evidence indicates that they descended from the tribe of Dan.

Although Scripture states that Samson was “of the family of the Danites” [Judges 13:2], Yair Davidy of Brit-Am Israel claims that his lineage includes the Messianic tribe of Judah: “Samson the superman hero came from the Tribe of Dan but his mother was from Judah. Samson, in some respects, was considered a forerunner of the Messiah who will come from Judah but his mother, according to the Midrash will be of the Tribe of Dan.” [Brit-Am Israel newsletter, 2/9/99]

It is through the agency of the ultra-Orthodox Lubavitch Movement that the Gentiles are being prepared to submit to the Noahide Laws under a restored Sanhedrin. Yair Davidy posits, “The name Dan means “judge” in Hebrew. Many lawyers and judges in the USA are of Irish descent of a particular type as is much of the police force ... Descendants of Dan today appear to be concentrated in Ireland, Britain, the USA, and especially Denmark.” Merovingians are also found leading pseudo-Christian organizations as many profiles in the Council for National Policy and Discernment Ministries reveal. These Merovingian agents actively promote the Hebrew Roots / Messianic Movement as the catalyst for Judaizing Christians.


Lost Tribes of Israel
http://www.bibleprobe.com/lost.htm

Jacob had 12 sons. Each of these sons formed a tribe in Israel. These were: Reuben, Shimon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Joseph, and Benjamin. Known to history as the 12 Tribes of Israel, these tribes settled on both sides of the Jordan River.

After the death of King Solomon, the Hebrew nation split into two kingdoms. Two tribes, including the tribe of Judah and the tribe of the Jacob's youngest son (Benjamin) formed the Southern Kingdom, and the other 10 tribes, centered around Samaria made up the Northern Kingdom of Israel. In the year 722 BC, the Assyrians conquered the Kingdom of Israel and sent the Ten Tribes into Exile. Since then, their fate has been cloaked in a shroud of mystery and legend.

It all started in Genesis 49 when Jacob divided the birthright. Judah (the ONLY tribe to be called Jews) only got the right to rule and make the laws. Joseph got everything else, including all the prophecies and promises to Abraham. Joseph's descendents were the nobility of the 12-tribed nation. If you'll look at Ezekiel 23, you'll see that the pre-eminent sister in God's eyes was Ahola, "the elder". God immediately clarifies by telling us that Ahola is Samaria, the symbol of the northern kingdom, called the House of Israel.

When the whole nation of Israel, which included the soon-to-be-called-Jews of the tribe of Judah, split soon after Solomon's death, it was like Judah seceded from the twelve-tribed union and took Benjamin with them. Israel really stayed pretty much the same, with the Ephraimites in charge. Every time you read House of Israel, or Joseph, Ephraim, Isaac, Samaria and other names it refers to the ten tribes of the northern kingdom (the Nation of Israel).

Would you believe these are you (Isaiah says; to the "isles afar off")? Are they descendents of the British Isles, Ireland, the countries of northwest Europe, the United States and even Japan? In an irony to Jewish history, could the tribe of Dan have gone to Greece and later to Rome? Could descendents of Dan have actually been involved with all the holocausts of Jewish history (Greek, Roman, Inquisition and Nazi Germany)?

One important link/key is the term Scythians (Celts); "the people who dwell in booths".

Did the prophet Jeremiah (a Chief of Iber) die in Ireland?

Did he travel there in 583-560 BC from Egypt around the same time of the destruction of Jerusalem, with: the scribe Baruch, Ebed-Melech, Tea Tephi (daughter of Zedekiah & heir to the throne-line of Pharez), and the son of the king of Ireland who had been in Jerusalem at the time of the siege?

Did Jeremiah come to Ireland to build the nation Israel in the Isles of the West and to plant the royal line of David upon Israel’s throne in the person of Zedekiahs daughter, Tea Tephi? Tea Tephi is the name of the most celebrated queen in early Irish history. With her the lion came into Irish heraldry, an emblem of the Israelites, but especially of the tribe of Judah. With Tea Tephi also a most remarkable 400 pound stone came to Ireland called the Lia Fail, or stone wonderful, or Stone of Scone upon which the Irish line of kings were crowned until about 500 A.D. Thereafter it was carried to Scotland and used as coronation stone there till 1296 A.D. Then Edward I carried it to Westminster Abbey where it has been ever since, until just recently when it was returned to Scotland, as the Coronation Stone of Great Britain.

Tea Tephi married the Irish monarch, Eiochaid, the Heremonn, thus joining the Pharez and Zarah branches of Judahs royal line, and from them through the Irish and Scotch line of kings one can trace the descent to George VI and show that Davids line did not lapse for Yahweh keep His covenant of salt. (2 Chronicles 13:5)

Was Jeremiah the elderly white-haired patriarch, sometimes referred to as a "saint," who came ashore in Ulster in Irish tradition? Wasn't Jeremiah the grandfather of King Zedekiah (last king of Judah); and thus, God's Trustee of the Bloodline and the Throne of David? From these sources we learn that about 565 B.C., soon after Jeremiah and the king’s daughters disappeared in eastern history, there appeared in Ireland at Tara, the seat of the Irish kings, a remarkable and mysterious personage, a prophet named Ollam Fola, who instituted a school of prophets in Ireland. From the number of Hebrew words connected with this mysterious personage he is shown to have been a Hebrew prophet. The only Hebrew prophet who disappeared with any such mission that would take him to the Isles of the West, was Jeremiah, whose bust is in Dublin Castle. The name of Jeremiah remains in those parts even today.

Was the royal bloodline planted in Ireland?

Could a female further the bloodline?

Did Jeremiah bring the ancient Jewish coronation stone to Ireland (was the throne then overturned 3 times, and now is in London?)

Was it moved three times (finally to England) in fulfillment of Ezekiel's prophecy mentioned in chapter 21, verses 25-27?

Did St. Andrew journey to Scotland?

Is Israel today Ephraim?

Are Britain and the United States Manasseh?

Legend says Ireland was already populated by Hebrews before Jeremiah's arrival. Long prior to 700 B.C. another strong colony called "Tuatha de Danaan" (tribe of Dan) arrived in ships, drove out other tribes, and settled there. Later, in the days of David, a colony of the line of Zarah arrived in Ireland from the Near East. In light of this, imagine how fruitful the Irish potato famine has proven to be. Or, is all the above a fabrication started via a book ("England the Remnant of Judah." London, 1861) by British-Israel expositor named Rev. F.R.A. Glover who combined two different people Tea and Tephi from two different time periods? Is the Worldwide Church of God behind furthering this confusion? Or, is it all true?

Also, consider this conflicting legend that there is a strong Jewish tradition that the prophet Jeremiah was stoned to death outside the city walls of Jerusalem - in the place known as Golgotha.

Bible Probers should note: We think the "Annals" of Irish History (Annals of Ulster, Annals of the Four Masters, etc.) are only reliably historically from 1,000 A.D. onwards. All material relating to time periods before the time of St. Patrick (430 A.D.) is legend. However, there is some truth contained in the "Annals" prior to 1,000 A.D. The "Annals" go back to about 444 A.D., but written copies date only from the 1400's. For instance, in these Irish "Annals" there are 18 records of eclipses and comets which all agree exactly to the day and hour with the calculations of modern astronomers. The oldest piece of consecutive Irish preserved in Ireland is found in the "Book of Armaugh", written about the year 812. Take note that, Jeremiah's commission included "to build and to plant". Legend frequently is steeped in fact, no matter how confusing. The Lost tribes went somewhere...Perhaps Ireland and western Europe....or even southern Russia.

Teia Tephi is thought to have been the daughter (Tender Twig) of the king of Jerusalem (the Cedar) whom Jeremiah went forth to PLANT in Ireland after the ROOTING-OUT and DESTRUCTION of Zedekiah, the king of Jerusalem in c. 588 B.C.

British occultist and Mason Lord Northampton, who has been atop the Temple Mount in Jerusalem conducting "Temple studies," candidly has admitted in interviews, that he is an adherent of British Israelism, which holds that the British oligarchy has mystical powers, because England was colonized by one of the lost tribes of Israel. "I think the tradition of the Kabbalah is very strong in England, because I think one of the lost tribes came to England. And I think you can spot them, quite clearly, in old English families. I am sure you can. I know they came to Ireland, then to the north of Wales, and then down into England. And then that became some of the oldest families we have."

Traditionally it is said to have been Jacob's pillow when he saw the angels of Bethel. Another legend suggests it was brought to Scotland by Scotia, daughter of an Egyptian pharaoh. The most likely explanation is that it was a royal stone brought from Antrim to Argyll and then to Scone by Kenneth MacAlpin, the 36th King of Dalriada.

Carried away from Scotland by English King Edward I in 1296, the 400-pound Stone of Scone (pronounced SKOON) reputedly was the coronation seat of ancient kings of Scotland and Ireland -- and, some say, the pillow of the patriarch Jacob. Some say that the stone placed beneath the Coronation Chair was a fake, the true Stone of Scone having been hastily hidden by the monks in an underground chamber. The truth may never be known.

Scottish Nationalists removed the Stone from Westminster in 1950 and returned it to Scotland. It was recovered in the grounds of Arbroath Abbey four months later.

The Stone of Scone was last used at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II - and so it still performs its ancient duty, and to far great effect, making not only the monarch of the Scots but of Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

On November 15, 1996, the Stone of Destiny, on which Scottish kings had been crowned since time immemorial, was brought back to Scotland 700 years after the army of King Edward I of England carted it off to Westminster Abbey in London. Now safely ensconced in Edinburgh Castle, the 152-kg rock, popularly known outside Scotland as the "Stone of Scone", has joined the other Scottish royal regalia -- crown, sceptre, sword and jewels -- in a closely-guarded museum.

The Stone was last used in a coronation in Scotland in 1292, when John Balliol was proclaimed King. Four years later, in 1296, the English monarch, Edward I (infamous as the "hammer of the Scots," and nemesis of Scottish national hero William Wallace) invaded Scotland. Among the booty that Edward's army removed was the legendary Stone, which the English king apparently regarded as an important symbol of Scottish sovereignty. The present Coronation Throne was made to house the stone in 1301.

But is the stone that finally rests securely in Edinburgh Castle the real Stone of Destiny? After so many centuries, it is impossible to know. According to one legend, the Stone never left Ireland at all. One tale suggests that the original Stone of Destiny was white marble, carved with decorative figures -- in no way resembling the plain slab of yellow sandstone with a single Latin cross carved on it that sat beneath the throne in Westminster Abbey for these past seven centuries. To make matters more confusing, there may have been several copies made down through the ages! It is entirely within the realm of possibility that some canny Scots fobbed off a fake on Edward I, seven hundred years ago, hiding the original coronation stone where it would never be found. One story particularly satisfying to Scottish nationalists with long memories claims that Edward actually took the rough rock used to hold down the cover of the cess-pit at Scone Castle, and that subsequent English monarchs have ceremoniously seated themselves on this medieval plumbing accessory for their coronations ever since 1308! At least one acknowledged copy of the "Westminster" Stone exists, on public display at beautiful Scone Palace in Perthshire, where it serves as a favorite roost for the elegant peacocks and camera-toting tourists who stroll the grounds.

Edward I was aware of the sacred Stone of Scotland and its strange history connecting it with Empire. He knew the Scots venerated the Stone and were willing to die for it. He knew the Scottish nation and believed there was an aura of fatality, inseparable from their ancient Stone, which convinced them that their monarchy could not be shaken while the relic was in the land; but it would suffer great changes were the Stone removed. So he took the Stone after defeating them in battle. [This was one of the causes of the rebellion led by William Wallace several years later].

'On the surface he wanted to persuade the Scots that the time for the dissolution of their kingdom had come, and so dampen their hopes of ever recovering their national liberty. But inwardly Edward dreamed of an Empire, and he its sovereign lord. Was there truth in the prophecy about the Stone; he wanted it! To ensure that his secret desire was not flawed, he had all the Scottish monuments destroyed, and books and records burned.

'This detestable act was abhorred by all who knew of it ('History of England,' by M. Rapine de Thoyras, page 427). Referring to this, de Thoyras wrote 'Those records were such a loss to the nation, to their posterity and to the world, as time could never replace.' And he revealed that in a similar manner and from similar motives many valuable Irish records were also consumed.

Is the Tribe of Dan - Israel's Biggest Nightmare?

Could the tribe of Dan have gone to Greece via Lebanon and later to Rome?

According to the ancient Greek "story" the Iliad by Homer, the founder of Troy was named Dardanus. Dardanus had a son named Erichthonius, who had a son named Tros, who was the namesake of the ancient Trojans and of their capital city of Troy.

Tros has three sons, Ilus, Ganymede, and Assaracus. Priam, the reigning king of the Trojans, was of the line of Ilus. Aeneas, founder of the Roman Empire, was a prince of the royal house of Assaracus. Ganymede was the great-grandson of Dardanus. According to Homer's Iliad (Book V), Zeus kidnapped the prince, Ganymede. Zeus wanted Ganymede to be a special cup-bearer to the gods (which may be a clue to the origin of the legend of the so-called Holy Grail).

The Iliad does not relate how Zeus carried off Ganymede, but there is an ancient Roman mosaic showing Ganymede, the Trojan prince, being carried off by Zeus, who had taken the form of an eagle. Here is a possible clue to connect the progenitors of the ancient Trojans with the tribe of Dan, who had adopted the eagle as their insignia.

Zeus was sometimes pictured as an eagle, but at other times he was pictured as a serpent to whom offerings of honey were made. Here appears yet another clue. We have the symbol of a snake (the first insignia of Dan) to whom offerings of honey were made!! The honey could be a reference to the bees in Samson's riddle. Over the centuries some of the Spartans (earlier populated by Trojans) and Trojans migrated to southern France, and into Germany. In the Apocryphal book I Maccabees there is an account about the Spartans of southern Greece claiming they were related to the Jewish people and were, in fact, the stock of Abraham.

A letter from the king of the Spartans to the Jewish high priest in Jerusalem is most revealing:

"Areus, king of the Spartans, to Onias, the high priest, greetings. It has been discovered in a document concerning the Spartans and Jews that they are brothers, and are of the race of Abraham" (I Maccabees 12:20-21). The first century Historian Flavius Josephus also records this letter in his writings.

Four symbols are used in the Bible concerning the Danites; a serpent, an eagle, a lion, and the bees. In the story of Samson we find the famous riddle of the bees who made honey in the carcass of a lion which had been killed by Samson. The symbolic nature of the bees could represent the concept that the descendents of the tribe of Dan would one day try to bring about the destruction of the tribe of Judah, whose symbol was the lion. Of interest, throughout the centuries, the Merovingian (European) royalty have for centuries been tied to the symbol of bees.

When Moses gave his prophecies of the 12 tribes, he said that Benjamin would "dwell between the shoulders of Judah" (Deuteronomy 33:12), and that Dan, "as a lion's whelp, would leap from Bashan" (Deuteronomy 33:22). Bashan was located in ancient Lebanon. That Mosaic prediction came to pass when the tribe of Dan was deprived of its territory adjacent to Judah, moved north to Lebanon, and established its territory in Bashan. From there the Danites made a symbolic leap into obscurity (Europe; Germany? Denmark? Danube River? Irish Tuatha de Danann? Rome? Greece?).

In Judges 18 the tribe of Dan established an idolatrous religion - the worship of the sun and moon.

Has Dan plotted and perpetrated most of Israel's Sufferings?

Of interest in the Bible is Genesis 16-17 that says;

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

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

In Revelation 7 all of the tribes are listed (within the figure of 144,000 Israelites), except the Tribe of Dan. Can it be that Dan will produce the AntiChrist? In describing the coming Antichrist, in Daniel 11:37 we read; "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all."

The Tribe of Benjamin and the Merovingians - Part 4(a)

The Merovingian Bloodline

The 13th Illuminati Bloodline is where the Anti-Christ will come from. This bloodline believes that it has both the Holy Blood of Jesus and the blood (or seed) of Satan in its bloodline. In my Be Wise as Serpents book, I make reference to this bloodline but I never really took the time to explain it completely. In fact I don’t fully understand this bloodline myself.

Within the Illuminati rituals, the emphasis of the 13th bloodline is that they are the seed of Satan. As their secret story goes, they are the direct descendents of Jesus' spiritual brother Lucifer. Since the Freeman family and the Rothschild family have members who are also in the 13th bloodline, It is unclear to me how interwoven the "seed of Satan" is.

Some of the earliest attempts to trace the seed of Satan were some books which did extensive research on the Tribe of Dan and the descendents of Cain.

The Illuminati is the continuation of the Mystery Religions of Babylon and Egypt. And the bloodlines of the Illuminati go back to people who at one time lived in Babylon and Egypt. Just how the House of David (the Satanic one) and how the Holy Blood of the 13th family fits in with everything else in history I can’t say. But I do feel that somehow the 13th Illuminati family goes back to ancient times.

Is this via the Tribe of Dan or via some Druidic bloodline or is it via the Merovingians or is it via all three’? Where do the Guelphs and Black Nobility fit into this?

Whatever the case, the 13th bloodline has amassed a great deal of power and wealth on this planet. The 13th bloodline has kept its genealogies very secret.

The tribe of Dan was prophesied to be the black sheep of the nation of Israel which would bite the other tribes of Israel. The tribe of Dan had the snake and the eagle as its two logos. The tribe of Dan left its calling card all over Europe as it migrated west in the names of many places. The tribe of Dan ruled the Greeks, the Roman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire and many others which used the eagle as its logo.

Great Britain is the mother country of Satanism. Scotland has long been an occult center. The national symbol of Scotland is the dragon (the snake), and for years the chief of Scotland was called the dragon.

The British Royalty has served as important figureheads to British Freemasonry lending credibility and respectability. British Freemasonry has managed to keep itself free of much of the criticism that the other national masonic groups have brought on themselves.


The Tribe of BENJAMIN in Europe
http://www.keithhunt.com/Benjamin.html

I had a book a long time back, forgot the name, but it was one of those "off the wall" books, trying to say Jesus literally married and had children. There was ONE chapter that I kept, for it possibly does have some truth in it. This chapter is concerning the migration of SOME of the tribe of Benjamin into Europe. So for you history buffs, here it is - Keith Hunt

THE EXILED TRIBE

Could there be something special about the Merovingian bloodline - something more than an academic, technical legitimacy? Could there really be something which, in some way, might genuinely matter to people today? Could there be something that might affect, perhaps even alter, existing social, political or religious institutions? These questions continued to nag at us. As yet, however, there appeared to be no answer to them. Once again we sifted through the compilation of 'Prieure documents', and especially the all-important Dossiers secrets. We re-read passages which had meant nothing to us before. Now they made sense, but they did not serve to explain the mystery or to answer what had now become the critical questions. On the other hand there were other passages whose relevance was still unclear to us. These passages by no means resolved the enigma; but, if nothing else, they set us thinking along certain lines – lines which eventually proved to be of paramount significance.

As we had already discovered the Merovingians, according to their own chroniclers, claimed descent from ancient Troy. But according to certain of the 'Prieure documents' the Merovingian pedigree was older than the siege of Troy. According to certain of the 'Prieure documents' the Merovingian pedigree could in fact be traced back to the Old Testament.

Among the genealogies in the Dossiers secrets, for example, there were numerous footnotes and annotations. Many of these referred specifically to one of the twelve tribes of ancient Israel, the Tribe of Benjamin. One such reference cites, and emphasises, three Biblical passages - Deuteronomy 33, Joshua 18 and Judges 20 and 21.

Deuteronomy 33 contains the blessing pronounced by Moses on the patriarchs of each of the twelve tribes. Of Benjamin, Moses says, 'The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.' (33:12) In other words Benjamin and his descendants were singled out for a very special and exalted blessing. That much, at any rate, was clear. We were, of course, puzzled by the promise of the Lord dwelling 'between Benjamin's shoulders'. Should we associate it with the legendary Merovingian birthmark - the red-cross between the shoulders? The connection seemed somewhat far-fetched. On the other hand, there were other clearer similarities between Benjamin in the Old Testament and the subject of our investigation.

According to Robert Graves, for example, the day sacred to Benjamin was December 23rd' - Dagobert's feast day. Among the three clans which comprised the Tribe of Benjamin, there was the clan of Abiram - which might in same obscure way pertain to Hiram, builder of the Temple of Solomon and central figure in Masonic tradition. Hiram's most devoted disciple, moreover, was named Benomi; and Benoni, interestingly enough, was the name originally conferred upon the infant Benjamin by his mother Rachel, before she died.

The second Biblical reference in the Dossiers secrets, to Joshua 18, is rather more clear. It deals with the arrival of Moses's people in the Promised Land and the apportionment to each of the twelve tribes of particular tracts of territory. According to this apportionment, the territory of the Tribe of Benjamin included what subsequently became the sacred city of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem, in other words, even before it became the capital of David and Salomon, was the allocated birthright of the Tribe of Benjamin. According to Joshua 18:28, the birthright of the Benjamites encompassed 'Zelah, Eleph and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem. Gibealh and Kirjath; fourteen cities with villages.

This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.'

Third Biblical passage cited by the Dossiers secrets a fairly complex sequence of events. A Levite, traveling through Benjamite territory, is assaulted, and his concubine ravished, by worshippers of Belial - a variant of the Sumerian Mother Goddess, known as Ishtar by the Babylonians and Astarte by the Phoenicians.

Calling representatives of the twelve tribes to witness, the Levite demands vengeance for the atrocity; and at a council, the Benjamites are instructed to deliver the malefactors to justice. One might expect the Benjamites to comply readily. For some reason, however, they do not, and undertake, by force of arms, to protect the 'sons of Belial'. The result is a bitter and bloody war between the Benjamites and the remaining eleven tribes. In the course of hostilities a curse is pronounced by the latter on any man who gives his daughter to a Benjamite. When the war is over, however, and the Benjamites virtually exterminated, the victorious Israelites repent of their malediction - which, however, cannot be retracted:

"Now the men of Israel had sworn in Mizpeh, saying, There shall not any of us give his daughter unto Benjamin to wife. And the people came to the house of God, and abode there till even before God, and lifted up their voices, and wept sore: And said, O Lord God of Israel, why is this come to pass in Israel, that there should be today one tribe lacking in Israel?" (Judges 21:1-3)

A few verses later, the lament is repeated:

"And the children of Israel repented them for Benjamin their brother, and said, There is one tribe cut off from Israel this day. How shall we do for wives for them that remain, seeing we have sworn by the Lord that we will not give them of our daughters to wives?" [Judges 21:6-7)

And yet again:

"And the people repented them for Benjamin, because that the Lord had made a breach in the tribes of Israel. Then the elders of the congregation said, “How shall we do for wives for them that remain, seeing the women are destroyed out of Benjamin? And they said, There must be an inheritance for them that be escaped out of Benjamin, that a tribe be not destroyed out of Israel. Howbeit we may not give them wives of our daughters: for the children of Israel have sworn, saying, Cursed be he that giveth a wife to Benjamin." (Judges 21:15-18)

Confronted by the possible extinction of an entire tribe, the elders quickly devise a solution. At Shiloh, in Bethel there is to be a festival shortly; and the women of Shiloh - whose menfolk had remained neutral in the war - are to be considered fair game. The surviving Benjamites are instructed to go to Shiloh and wait in ambush in the vineyards. When the women of the town congregate to dance in the forthcoming festival, the Benjamites are to pounce upon them and take them to wife.

It is not at all clear why the Dossiers secrets insist on calling attention to this passage. But whatever the reason the Benjamites, so far as Biblical history is concerned, are clearly important. Despite the devastation of the war, they quickly recover in prestige, if not in numbers. Indeed, they recover so well that in 1 Samuel they furnish Israel with her first king, Saul.

Whatever recovery the Benjamites may have made, however, the Dossiers secrets imply that the war over the followers of Belial was a crucial turning point. It would seem that in the wake of this conflict many, if not most, Benjamites went into exile. Thus, there is a portentous note in the Dossiers secrets. In capital letters:

One day the descendants of Benjamin left their country: certain remained; two thousand years later Godfroi VIi [de Bouillon] became King of Jerusalem and founded the Ordre de Sion.

At first there appeared to be no connection between these apparent non sequiturs. When we assembled the diverse and fragmentary references in the Dossiers secrets, however, a coherent story began to emerge. According to this account most Benjamites did go into exile. Their exile supposedly took them to Greece, to the central Peloponnese - to Arcadia, in short, where they supposedly became aligned with the Arcadian royal line.

Towards the advent of the Christian era, they are then said to have migrated up the Danube and the Rhine, intermarrying with certain Teutonic tribes and eventually engendering the Sicambrian Franks - the immediate forebears of the Merovingians.

According to the 'Prieure documents', then, the Merovingians were descended, via Arcadia, from the Tribe of Benjamin. In other words the Merovingians, as well as their subsequent descendants - the bloodlines of Planted and Lorraine, for example - were ultimately of Semitic or Israelite origin. And if Jerusalem was indeed the hereditary birthright of the Benjamites, Godfroi de Bouillon, in marching on the Holy City, would in fact have been reclaiming his ancient and rightful heritage. Again it is significant that Godfroi, alone among the august Western princes who embarked on the First Crusade disposed of all his property before his departure - implying thereby that he did not intend to return to Europe.

Needless to say, we had no way of ascertaining whether the Merovingians were of Benjamite origin or not. The information in the 'Prieure documents', such as it was, related to too remote, too obscure a past, for which no confirmation, no records of any sort could be obtained. But the assertions were neither particularly unique nor particularly new. On the contrary they had been around, in the form of vague rumours and nebulous traditions far a long time. To cite but one instance, Proust draws upon them in his opus; and more recently, the novelist Jean d'Ormesson suggests a Judaic origin for certain noble French families. And in 1965 Roger Peyrefitte, who seems to like scandalising his countrymen, did so with resounding eclat in a novel affirming all French and most Europeen nobility to be ultimately Judaic.

In fact the argument, although unprovable, is not altogether implausible. Nor are the exile and migration ascribed to the Tribe of Benjamin in the 'Prieure documents'.

The Tribe of Benjamin look up arms on behalf of the followers of Belial – a form of the Mother Goddess often associated with images of a bull or calf. There is to believe that the Benjamites themselves revered the same deity. Indeed, it is possible that the worship of the Calf in Exodus - the subject, significantly enough, of Poussin's most famous paintings - may have been specifically Benjamite ritual.

Following their war against the other eleven tribes of Israel, Benjamites fleeing into exile would, of necessity, had to flee westwards, towards Phoenicia. The Phoenicians possessed ships capable of transporting large numbers of refugees. And they would have been obvious allies for fugitive Benjamites - for they, too, worshipped the Mother Goddess in the form of Astarte, of Heaven.

If there was actually an exodus of Benjamites from Palestine, one might hope to find some vestigial record of it. In Greek myth one does. There is the legend of King Bolus's son, one Danaus, who arrives in Greece, with his daughters, by ship. His daughters are said to have introduced the cult of the Mother Goddess, which became the established cult of the Arcadians.

According to Robert Graves, the Danaus myth records the arrival in the Peloponnesus of 'colonists from Palestine'. Graves states that King Bolus is in fact Baal, or Bel - or perhaps Belial from the Old Testament. It is also worthy of note that one of the clans of the Tribe of Benjamin was the clan of Bela.

In Arcadia the cult of the Mother Goddess not only prospered but survived longer than in any other part of Greece. It became associated with worship of Demeter, then of Diana or Artemis. Known regionally as Arduina, Artemis became tutelary deity of the Ardennes: and it was from the Ardennes that the Sicambrian Franks first issued into what is now France. The totem of Artemis was the she-bear - Kallisto, whose son was Arkas, the bear-child and patron of Arcadia. And Kallisto transported to the heavens by Artemis, became the constellation Ursa Major, the Great Bear. There might thus be something more than coincidence in the appellation 'Ursus', applied repeatedly to the Merovingian bloodline.

In any case there is other evidence apart from mythology, suggesting a Judaic migration to Arcadia. In classical times the region known as Arcadia was ruled by the powerful, militaristic stale of Sparta. The Spartans absorbed much of the older Arcadian culture: and indeed the legendary Arcadian Lycaeus may in fact be identified with Lycurgus, who codified Spartan Law. On reaching manhood, the Spartans, like the Merovingians, ascribed a special, magical significance to their hair - which, like the Merovingians, they wore long. According to one authority, 'the length of hair denoted their physical vigour and became a sacred symbol.' What is more, both books of Maccabees in the Apocrypha stress the link between Spartans and Jews. Maccabees 2 speaks of certain Jews 'having embarked to go to the Lacedaemonians, in hope of finding protection there because of their kinship.' And Maccabees 1 states explicitly, 'It has been found in writing concerning the Spartans and the Jews that they are brethren and are of the family of Abraham."

We could thus acknowledge at least the possibility of a Judaic migration to Arcadia - so that the 'Prieure documents', if they could not be proved correct, could not be dismissed either.

As for Semitic influence on Frankish culture, there was solid archaeological evidence. Phoenician or Semitic trade routes traversed the whole of southern France, from Bordeaux to Marseilles and Narbonne. They also extended up the Rhone. As early as 700-800 B.C., there were Phoenician settlements not only along the French coast but inland as well, at such sites as Carcassonne and Toulouse. Among the artefacts found at these sites were many of Semitic origin. This is hardly surprising. In the ninth century B.C. the Phoenician kings of Tyre had intermarried with the kings of Israel and Judah, thus establishing a dynastic alliance that would have engendered a close contact between their respective peoples.

The sack of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, and the destruction of the Temple, prompted a massive exodus of Jews from the Holy Land.

Thus the city of Pompeii, buried by the eruption of Vesuvius to A.D. 79, included a Jewish community. Certain cities in southern France - Arles, for example, Lunel and Narbonne - provided a haven for Jewish refugees around the same time. And yet the influx of Judaic peoples into Europe, and especially France, predated the fall of Jerusalem in the first century. In fact it had been in progress from before the Christian era. Between 108 and 98 B.C. a Jewish colony was established in Rome. Not long after another such colony was founded far up the Rhine, at Cologne. Certain Roman legions included contingents of Jewish slaves, who accompanied their masters all over Europe. Many of these slaves eventually won, purchased or, in some other fashion, obtained their freedom and formed communities.

In consequence there are many specifically Semitic names scattered about France. Some of them are situated squarely in the Old Merovingian heartland. A few kilometres from Stenay, for example, on the fringe of the Forest of Woevres where Dagobert was assassinated, is a village called Baalon. Between Stenay and Orval, there is a town called Avioth. And the mountain of Sion in Lorraine - 'la colline inspiree' - was originally Mount Semita.

Again then, while we could not prove the claims in the 'Prieurd documents', we could not discount them either. Certainly there was enough evidence to render them at least plausible. We were compelled to acknowledge that the 'Prieure documents' might be correct - that the Merovingians, and the various noble families descended from them, might have stemmed from Semitic sources.

But could this, we wondered, really be all there was to the story? Could this really be the portentous secret which had engendered so much fuss and intrigue, so much machination and mystery, so much controversy and conflict through the centuries?

Is this merely another lost tribe legend? And even if it were not legend but true, could it really explain the motivation of the Prieure de Sion and the claim of the Merovingian dynasty? Could it really explain the adherence of men like Leonardo and Newton or the activities of the houses of Guise and Lorraine, the covert endeavours of the Compagnie du Saint-Sacrement, the elusive secrets of *Scottish Rite* Freemasonry? Obviously not.

Why should descent from the Tribe of Benjamin constitute so explosive a secret? And, perhaps most crucially, why should descent from the Tribe of Benjamin matter today? How could it possibly clarify the Prieurd de Sion's present-day activities and objectives?

If our inquiry involved vested interests that were specifically Semitic or Judaic, moreover, why did it involve so many components of a specifically, even fervently, Christian character? The pact between Clovis and the Roman Church, for example; the avowed Christianity of Godfroi de Bouillon and the conquest of Jerusalem: the heretical, perhaps, but none the less Christian thought of the Gathers and Knights Templar; pious institutions like the Compagnie du Saint-Sacrement; Freemasonry that was 'Hermetic, aristocratic and Christian', and the implication of so many Christian ecclesiastics, from high-ranking princes of the Church to local village cures like Boudet and Sauniere?

It might be that the Merovingians were ultimately of Judaic origin, but if this were so it seemed to us essentially incidental. Whatever the real secret underlying our investigation, it appeared to be inextricably associated not with Old Testament Judaism, but with Christianity. In short, the Tribe of Benjamin - for the moment, at least - seemed to be a red herring. However important it might be, there was something of even greater importance involved. We were still overlooking something.

NOTE:

The main point from all this particular history and many other histories written and exposed by others is that Europe and Britain have a much more "Jewish"/Israel connection than many today would dream about. For centuries this history has been suppressed and swept under the rug. To a large part it was the Anglo-Saxons and their descendants of England that "wrote history" their way. Only in the last 50 years have the English history teachers come to admit the history preserved by the Welsh, is in the main very true. When I was attending High School in England back in the late 1950s, there was just about no history taught to us before 500 A.D. when the now English came into Britain. I remember a little being taught about Queen Boadicea and her battles against the Romans, but that was about it.

The Roman Catholic church, as they conquered and ruled Europe and Britain, certainly did not want anyone to know of the great civilization of that part of the world which had deep roots in Hebrew/Israel/Jewish. The RC church wanted history to show it was they who brought Christianity and "civilization" to Europe and Britain.


FROM THE BOOK "THE DISCREPANCIES OF THE BIBLE"
http://www.keithhunt.com/Geneal.html

THE TWO GENEALOGYS OF CHRIST - MATTHEW AND LUKE

There are two principal theories respecting these genealogies.

1. That held by Alford, Ellicott, Hervey, Meyer, Mill, Patritius, Wordsworth, and others - that both genealogies are Joseph's; Matthew exhibiting him as the legal heir to the throne of David, that is, naming the successive heirs of the kingdom from David to Jesus the reputed son of Joseph; while Luke gives Joseph's private genealogy or actual descent. This theory is very ingeniously and elaborately set forth in Lord Arthur Hervey's work 4 upon the subject to which the reader is referred.

2. That held by Auberlen, Ebrard, Greswell, Kurtz, Lange, Lightfoot, Michaelis, Neander, Robinson, Surenhusius, Wieseler, and others - that Matthew gives Joseph's, and Luke, Mary's, genealogy. Although the alleged discrepancies may be removed upon either hypothesis, yet we must give the preference to the second, for the following reasons.

(1) The latter theory seems supported by several early Christian writers, - Origen, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Athanasius, and Justin Martyr. 1

(2) It is indirectly confirmed by Jewish tradition. Lightfoot 2 cites from the Talmudic writers concerning the pains of hell, the statement that Mary the daughter of Heli was seen in the infernal regions, suffering horrid tortures. 3 This statement illustrates, not only the bitter animosity of the Jews toward the Christian religion, but also the fact that, according to received Jewish tradition, Mary, was the daughter of Heli; hence, that it is her genealogy which we find in Luke.

(3) This theory shows us in what way Christ was the "Son of David". If Mary was the daughter of Heli, then Jesus was strictly a descendant of David, not only legally, through his reputed father, but actually, by direct personal descent, through his mother. The latter consideration is one of the very first interest and importance.

(4) This theory affords a very simple explanation of the whole matter. Mary, since she had no brothers, was an heiress; therefore her husband, according to Jewish law, was reckoned among her father's family, as his son. So that Joseph was the actual son of Jacob, and the legal son of Heli. In a word, Matthew sets forth Jesus' right to the theocratic crown, Luke, his natural pedigree. The latter employs Joseph's name, instead
of Mary's, in accordance with the Israelite law that "genealogies must be reckoned by fathers, not mothers."

The Tribe of Benjamin and the Merovingians - Part 4(b)

Notes on the Tribe of Benjamin, the Left Hand of Israel
http://trismegistus.org.uk/kaotec/benjamin.htm

Earliest History

Habiru, essentially ‘gypsies’, a generic term for Semitic nomads used by both the Egyptians and Canaanites, move into Palestine, and later Egypt, from Mesopotamia. One particularly dangerous ‘raiding band’ known as the Ben Yamin is said to be nomadic ‘Baal worshippers’ whose territorial routes were blocked when the land was enclosed by first city dwellers. This event is also the source of the Cain and Abel myth.

Even in biblical times: ‘Benjamin shall ravin [as] a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil’.

The wolf is regarded by some as the totemic animal of the tribe (just as the lion is for Judah).

Habiru settle in Palestine. Some become mercenaries of the Asiatic Hyksos army which invades Palestine from north.

Hyksos invade Egypt and become its new rulers. Habiru incorporated. Confederal State formed from several semi-autonomous local kingdoms (some Hyksos, and other Semites, some still native Egyptian, including Kingdom of Thebes).

Theban Egyptians, under ultra-nationalistic Priesthood of Amun, overthrow and expel Hyksos and all foreigners, particularly Semites. Reunify country under a traditional centralised Imperial State. Possibly other Egyptians support Hyksos against Thebans (including an Anti-Amunist ‘Atenist’ aristocrat called Moses?) and expelled with them.

The ‘Hebrews’ arrive in Palestine.

’Manetho, an Egyptian priest who lived around 250 BC, recounted that according to the Egyptian records, the Hebrews of the Exodus were known as Hyksos, and as Bernal noted, ever since late antiquity, writers have seen links between them and the Greek legends of the arrival of Cadmus and Danaus in Arcadia. To Heccataeus of Abdera, a Greek historian of the fourth century BC, the Egyptian expulsion of the Hyksos, the Israelite Exodus, and Danaus’ landing in Arcadia were three parallel versions of the same story. Referring to the Egyptians he says’:

‘The natives of the land surmised that unless they removed the foreigners their troubles would never be resolved. At once, therefore, the aliens were driven from the country but the most outstanding and active among them banded together and, as some say, were cast ashore in Greece and certain other regions; their teachers were notable men, among them being Danaus and Cadmus. But the greater number were driven into what is now called Judea, which is not far from Egypt and at that time was utterly uninhabited. The colony was headed by a man called Moses’.
History

The tribe of Benjamin gains territory – Jericho, Jerusalem, Bethhoglah, Zelah, Eleph, Gibeath and Kirjath. But not always violently it seems, unlike other tribes.

’Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the valley of Keziz’. ’They also took Jebu (Jerusalem). And the children of Benjamin did not drive out the (pagan) Jebusites that inhabited Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem unto this day’.

"Zelah, Eleph and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath and Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families." - Joshua 18:28

The Tribe of the Left Hand Path?

In Judaic mythology: ‘The Tribe of Benjamin stood unique among the Tribes of Israel in certain respects. The only son born within the borders of Canaan, Benjamin was also, therefore, the only son of Jacob not joining Jacob-Israel in making a symbolic, and perhaps prophetic, bow before Esau and his four-hundred warriors upon their return to the land of Canaan. Rachel had died giving birth to him. As she was dying she named him "Benoni", meaning "son of my sorrow", but this name was changed to "Benjamin", meaning "son of the right hand" by Jacob afterwards.

This might have been as a result of Benjamin as a small boy lifting his left hand to Jacob's right hand when learning to walk. The left hand was not the one generally used for such contacts as it was, by convention, reserved to the less-sanitary requirements of life, and thus the act would be noted. Curiously, Scripture mentions of Benjamin's descendants, a number of these notable for the characteristic of being left-handed’.

The Benjaminites were believed to have introduced the orgiastic Golden Calf cult to Israel (a Baal or Asherah cult). Their tribal festival is believed to have been Dec 23rd.

The Tribe of Benjamin (Benjaminites) was divided into three (or four) clans:

Belah (Belaites), ‘Destroyers’; Ahiram (Ahiramites), ‘Brothers of Craft’ (Freemasonry is packed with Benjaminite motifs); and Ashbel (Ashbelites), ‘People of the Ancient Fire’. A possible division of warrior, craftsman/farmer and priest specialisations?

Becher (Becherites), ‘the First Born’, seems to be a forth Clan that either died out or emigrated(?)

The Families of the Belah Clan were: Ard (Ardites), ‘the Fallen Ones’ and Naaman (Naamites), ‘the Beautiful Ones’.
The Families of the Ahiram Clan appear to be: Huppim (Huppimites), ‘Those of Seashore’, Muppim (Muppimites), ‘Those of the Mouth’, Shuppim (Shuppimites)?

The Families of the Ashbel Clan appear to be: Rosh (Roshites) ‘Those of the Head, Gera (Gerites), ‘Those of Enmity’, Ehi (Ehites), ‘Those Who Praise’.

Israel - Benjaminite War

When the Levites led a ‘revenge attack’ on the ‘children of Belial’, the Canaanite worshippers of Belial, an old name for Astarte, they were defended by their neighbours the Tribe of Benjamin, who were also suspected of goddess worship. A war began which Israel eventually won. Though the Benjaminites were saved from annihilation (900 out of 26,000) and allowed to take Canaanite wives to repopulate their cities.

As the Davidic record tells it:

‘Now therefore deliver up to us the men, the children of Belial, which are in Gibeah, that we may put them to death, and put away evil from Israel. But the children of Benjamin would not hearken to the voice of their brethren the children of Israel’.

‘But the children of Benjamin gathered themselves together out of the cities unto Gibeah, to go out to battle against the children of Israel’.

‘And the children of Benjamin were numbered at that time out of the cities twenty and six thousand men that drew sword, beside the inhabitants of Gibeah, which were numbered seven hundred chosen men’. ‘And the men of Israel, beside Benjamin, were numbered four hundred thousand men that drew sword: all these were men of war’.

‘And the children of Israel arose, and went up to the house of God, and asked counsel of God, and said, Which of us shall go up first to the battle against the children of Benjamin? And the LORD said, Judah shall go up first’.

‘And the men of Israel went out to battle against Benjamin; and the men of Israel put themselves in array to fight against them at Gibeah’.

‘And the children of Benjamin came forth out of Gibeah, and destroyed down to the ground of the Israelites that day twenty and two thousand men’.

'And the children of Benjamin went out against the people, and were drawn away from the city; and they began to smite of the people, and kill, as at other times, about thirty men of Israel'.

'And the children of Benjamin said, They are smitten down before us, as at the first. But the children of Israel said, Let us flee, and draw them from the city unto the highways'.

'And the LORD smote Benjamin before Israel: and the children of Israel destroyed of the Benjamites that day twenty and five thousand and a hundred men: all these drew the sword. And the men of Israel turned again upon the children of Benjamin, and smote them with the edge of the sword, as well the men of [every] city, as the beast, and all that came to hand: also they set on fire all the cities that they came to'.

'So the children of Benjamin saw that they were smitten: for the men of Israel gave place to the Benjamites, because they trusted unto the ambushers which they had set beside Gibeah'. Book of Judges
The Benjaminites were said to have been saved by the blessing of God on them.

’The Tribe of Benjamin had been singled out for a very special and exalted blessing, when in Deuteronomy 33:12, Moses pronounced blessings on the patriarchs of each of the twelve tribes. Of Benjamin, Moses said, "The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders." ‘ This last point was identified as a special ‘birthmark’ on members of the tribe, similar to that of Cain, it is given various forms in different accounts, one of which was a ‘red cross between the shoulders’.

The Tribe of Benjamin later produced the first elected King of Israel, Saul, a Judge from the smallest family, of the smallest clan, of the smallest tribe, to organise the tribes of Israel against the invading Aegean Philistines, but he battles against the priests of Yahweh. He is later deposed by the religious maniac King David and his private army of Philistine mercenaries, who founds the Dynasty of Judah and unites Israel into a Nation against all other local peoples. Later the tiny remnant of the Tribe of Benjamin together with the larger Tribe of Judah form the new Kingdom of Judah, the remaining ten tribes created the Kingdom of Israel which breaks away.

Even in Christian times, certain Jews, including Paul, were declaring themselves to be Israelites as well as Jews, principally through descent from the tribe of Benjamin, and were seeking unity with other ‘lost tribes’ of Israel (Gentiles). In some traditions Mary Magdalene was also said to be of the tribe of Benjamin and a goddess cultist.
However the Benjaminite mythos was also taken up, and distorted, by some fanatical anti-Semitic Christian Crusaders, who saw themselves rather than the Jews as the true people of Jerusalem including those who took Jerusalem in 1099 and so felt justified in massacring its inhabitants. Care needs to be taken with this mythos.

Appendix I - Lost Tribe myths and the Benjaminites

Many tales exist of the ‘lost Tribes of Israel’ surviving amongst Gentiles and intermarrying with them. Most are spurious, but the tales connecting the Greeks and the Benjaminites are at least not as easy to dismiss. There is little reference to Benjamites leaving Palestine (though this may have occurred during the war) or directly from Egypt before they arrived.

Robert Graves argued that the founder of the second dynasty of Argos, in Arcadia, Danaos the Libyan, son of Belos the Egyptian, was actually Danaiel the Phoenician, son of Beliel of the Hyksos, drawing on the sources mentioned earlier, and the Semitic origin of the names (as, os or ios and al, el or iel being the divine suffixes in Indo-European and Semitic languages respectively), supporting this with the facts that the Argives (people of Argos) introduced an ‘aggressive Aphrodite’ to Arcadia, who sounds very much like Astarte, and established the pre-eminence of a goddess cult there, and that Pan also became a popular deity in Arcadia around the same time (Graves identifies Pan with Baal). Another connection is also made by others through the alleged totemic animal of the ‘Danaans’ (the Greek name for the Hellenic Argives descended from Danaos) and of the Benjaminites which is said to have been the wolf (linking in the obvious Hebraic connotations of the names Daniel and Belial). Circumstantially, Graves also pointed to the influence of the Phoenicians on Greek culture (most obviously their alphabet), a fact only just being acknowledged today.

The most literal interpretation of this light evidence would be a migration of Semitic Hyksos from Egypt to North Africa (the original meaning of Libya) and from there to Argos in Greece, with perhaps Benjamites prominent in the immigration. However there seems to be no evidence of Hyksos entering North Africa or of North African influence in Arcadia in this period. A possible alternative is thus that Libya / North Africa actually refers to Carthage, the Phoenician colony in North Africa, or a similar place, the only prominent Semitic people in North Africa at the time, with which the ancient Greeks had more direct contact with than the Palestinian Phoenicians. The Phoenicians were an advanced ‘tribe’ of Canaanite Palestinians, and would thus have probably seen themselves as Canaanite first and Phoenician second (this would match other tribal structures elsewhere, such as people-‘nation’-tribe-clan-family).

A similar attitude seems to have existed in the Benjaminite alliance with Canaan, both perhaps seeing themselves as primarily a Palestinian people, and Canaanite or Israelite Palestinian only secondly (unlike the other Israelite tribes who saw themselves as separate). And according to many contemporary sources nearly all Palestinians then were either of Hyksos-Habiru descent or ruled by people of Hyksos-Habiru descent. So the Libyan origin of Danaos might either be a mistake for a Phoenician origin made at a later telling of the story, or an indication that the Palestinian immigrants came via Phoenician colonies.

Even more controversially it was also argued from all this that the ‘Danaans’ formed a separate tribe in Greece and that one branch of it became the Celtic ‘Tuatha de Danaan’, which was why some Celts claimed to be of Greek or Trojan descent! Others associated Danaiel with a member of the tribe of Benjamin in exile and Beliel with his clan of Belah. It should be noted however that Heccataeus of Abdera did not claim this, but rather that the original Danaans and the Israelites were both descended from the Hyksos.

The mythos was later extended to the Merovingian Franks and others (said to be of part Celtic descent). These were said to have a taboo about cutting their hair (as did, allegedly, the ancient Arcadians and Nazarites of Israel) and to have had a strange birthmark, identified with the ‘red cross of Benjamin’. This ‘red cross’ has even been claimed as the origin of the Knights Templar symbol (with or without the Merovingians as carriers).

‘Bernal indicated that, according to their own mythological accounts, the Greeks were descended in large part from Danaus and Cadmus, two legendary personages recognized as Phoenicians, that is, from the people of Palestine, that resulted from the extensive intermarriage between Canaanites and Hebrews, and who had established colonies throughout the ancient Mediterranean’.

Jewish Maccabean tradition also claimed that the Jews and certain Greeks were both sons of Abraham (though not necessarily of Israel). One text (Maccabees I), however, states the Spartans were closely related to the Jews. The Spartans though were arch enemies of the Argives-Danaans, but they did intermarry with them and adopt some of their culture, such as a warlike Aphrodite (Astarte). An identification between the warlike nationalistic Maccabees and the warlike nationalistic Spartans may have had a political motive as well of course (strengthened by intense rivalry with Hellenism).

A Brief History of Argos

The first Argives were a community of Mycenaeans in eastern Arcadia. Their ruling house died out and was replaced by a foreign noble from North Africa (or a Phoenician colony there) called Danaos, who brought his clan with him. From these people came the Danaans, who repopulated and revitalised Arcadia, introducing Astarte - Asherah as an oriental Aphrodite (later as Artemis and Hera) as well as Baal - Pan and other Asiatic deities. With the fall of Mycenae Argos went into decline but was rejuvenated following the Dorian invasion and became a major Greek City. It developed an intense enmity towards Sparta.

'Argos, a city in the northern Peloponnesos, played an important role in early Greek legend and in the Classical period was famous for its sculptors. Argos may have issued coins from as early as the sixth century B.C., but it was not until after its expansion of c. 468 B.C. that its major coinage begins. The wolf is a frequent type on the smaller denominations of Argive coinage. It is a symbol of Apollo Lykeios, Apollo, as wolf god, who had long had a cult at Argos. On the reverse is the abbreviated name of the city and beneath it a club, a reference to the pre-eminent Argive hero Herakles’.

‘Here the Spartans proved their martial ascendancy, defeating the Argives who were forced to withdraw and concede control of the plain. In their shame, the Argive priests decreed that no Argive should wear his hair long until Thyreae was recovered. According to Herodotus, the Spartans henceforth mocked the Argives by wearing their hair long’.

‘In 494 BC, Cleomenes I of Sparta defeated the Argives at Sepeia (near Tiryns) in the Argolid. The surviving Argives took refuge in a sacred grove while negotiating with Cleomenes. A delegation of Argives was allowed to leave the grove, but broke their promises to the Spartans, prompting Cleomenes to burn it down, killing the balance of Argive fugitives sheltered there.

The Spartans then marched on Argos, but a female poet named Telesilla (Fetesilla) rallied the women, children, slaves and invalids to the defence of the city. After an initial attack found the defenders resolute, the Spartans withdrew, as there was no honor in defeating women and only shame if they suffered defeat. Instead, Cleomenes offered sacrifices at the Argive temple of Hera (flogging the priest when he was refused entrance) and then explaining to the Spartan ephors that his decision not to take Argos was due to his desire to bring the city into the Peloponnesian League as an ally. Whatever Cleomenes' purpose, Argos never fully recovered from this setback. For a time, Argives cast off their oligarchic form of government in favour of an Athenian-style democracy’.

‘Another distinctive feature of Argives and Danaans may be fairly uniform use of white shields, possibly with a hydra (water-snake) symbol, which is associated with the Argos after Herakles killed a water-snake at Lerna. Argos is referred to in Homer's Illiad as the Kingdom of Diomedes and it gave Herakles, Perseus, Jason and the Argonauts and the Hydra to Greek myth’. The cult of Dionysos, which tended to absorb all orgiastic and shamanic rites, was also strong amongst the Argives in later centuries.

The Illuminati - the Descendants Nephalim? – Part 5

viewtopic.php?p=43756&sid=0c1feac14103eaf0e6d301b715da7a0e#p43771

According to these same books, the “fallen angels”, lead by Satan, descended to earth and interbred with the female descendants of Cain, and taught them magic. This magic actually formed part of a broader cult that included the worship of Satan as god. It can be identified in ancient times as the worship of what has often been described as a “dying-god”.

Typically, ancient mythologies recount the story of an original God, who created the universe, and a usurper god, who eventually defeats him, and comes to rule the universe in his stead. Therefore, this god is seen as the Son. He is the offspring of the “father” god and his wife, the goddess. But the son-god also marries his mother. He is therefore, at the same time, the son, husband and brother of the goddess.

This became the basis of this cult as it was worshiped throughout the ancient world. Rituals involved a ritual of death and resurrection, to imitate that of the god. Participants would imbibe intoxicants, and dance to music in order to achieve a state of ecstasy, or Jinn possession, by which they believed they could achieve supernatural abilities like shape-shifting, clairvoyance and other magical powers. In this state they would slaughter a child, which represented the dead god, and eat its flesh and drink its blood so that the god could be reborn in them.

These rituals were usually attended with sexual orgies. An aspect of these sex rituals involved a priest and priestess impersonating the god and goddess. Known as a “Sacred Marriage”, either of the participants would become possessed by the god, where the union was to produce a “son of god”, who would then rule as king.


The Israelites:

This ancient cult took many guises throughout the centuries. In the West, it has survived as a number of secret societies, most notably the Rosicrucians, the Freemasons, and its various fringe organisations. But what all these numerous secret societies have in common is an adherence to what is called the Kabbalah, which is a Jewish adaptation of the ancient worship of the dying-god.

The worship of the dying god was further reinforced when the Israelites entered the land of the Canaanites, who worshipped a version of the dying-god and goddess, Baal and Astarte. Various hints in the Bible suggest that the Canaanites were descendants of the Anakim, in other words the Fallen Angels and the female descendants of Cain.

The true Judaism of Moses was only practised by a handful of orthodox reformers. It was such that numerous warnings were pronounced against the Israelites, warning that if they did not desist from their idolatry.


King Arthur:

Constantine was the last in a long time of rulers, descended from the priest-kings of Emesa, who had intermarried with the Houses of Herod, Commagene, and the Julio-Claudian line of Emperors. They had been responsible through the centuries, of attempting to impose the religion of Elegabalus, a version Baal, also known as Sol Invictus, the “Invincible Sun”, which was closely related to the cult of Mithraism. They finally succeeded in Constantine the Great, who ended the project incepted by Herod, to subvert the emerging Christian movement, by corrupting it into disguised Mithras worship.

This important bloodline was continued in a descendant of Constantine, known as Arthur, King of the Britons, made famous by the legends of the Holy Grail. According to British chroniclers of the Middle Ages, Constantine was also descended from another prominent Grail figure, Joseph of Arimathea.


The Saxons:

The Saxons, various ancient chroniclers maintained, were the Sacaea, descended from the Scythians of southern Russia, a tradition recorded by both Camden and John Milton, the former in his Britannia, of the sixteenth century, and the latter in his History of England, in the seventeenth.

The Saxons, like the Vikings, claimed descent from a Hunnish leader named Uldin, later Odin, or Wotan. According to the Yngling Saga, written by the Icelander Snorri Sturluson, Odin had moved north from the land of Asgaard, which was on the northwestern coast of the Black Sea, at the basin of the Don River in southern Russia. Asgard is likely the same as Arsareth, to which the Lost Tribes, following the captivity, were to have been relocated, according to ancient apocryphal works like the Book of 2 Esdras.


The Khazars:

It was the Scythians’ counterparts who chose to remain behind in the Don River Basin, who converted to Judaism in the eighth century AD, and who were known as Khazars. The word “Ashkenaz” is thought to have originally applied to the Scythians (Ishkuz), who were called Ashkuza in Assyrian inscriptions. It has also been claimed that the Khazars derived from both the Edomites and the so-called “Lost Tribes”. Like their Edomite ancestors, the Khazars were also red-headed, and came to be known as “Red Jews”.


The Merovingians:

With the collapse of the Khazar Empire in the tenth century, the Khazars were forced to move into other parts of Europe, where they contributed in producing the aristocracies of Hungary, Bulgaria and Poland. A particular woman was important in this nexus, named Dubrawka of Bohemia, through whom these various bloodlines coalesced, to produce the important occult families of Western Europe.

From her descendants emerged the important union between this Khazar heritage, and the emerging bloodlines of Western Europe, the most important of which was that of the Merovingians, originally from Scythia. It is commonly repeated in occult circles that Mary Magdalene had brought to southern France a child she bore to Jesus, and that her lineage was survived among the Merovingians. A descendant of Mary Magdalene and this Jesus, Quintus Tarus, a prefect of Rome, married Argotta, heiress of the Franks, to father King Merovech, ancestor of the Merovingians dynasty.

However, into the Merovingian dynasty there was also introduced the line of Rabbi Makhir, or Natronai, a representative of the Jewish Exilarchs, who ruled the Jewish communities of the Muslim world from Baghdad. He was supposedly the father Guillaume de Gellone, one of the most famous heroes of the Medieval romances.

A dispute apparently arose as to successorship to the Exilarchate, and Natronai lost his claim and was banished to “the West”. According to historian Arthur Zuckerman, Makhir would have adopted the Christian name Theodoric, or Thierry, and assumed the title of King of the Jews, and ruled over the independent state of Septimania in southern France, with the city of Narbonne as its capital. In the romances Theirry is called Aymery, the father of Guillaume de Gellone. The device of his shield was the Lion of Judah.

As late as 1143, Peter the Venerable of Cluny, in an address to Louis VII of France, condemned the Jews of Narbonne who continued to claim to have a king residing among them, a claim based presumably on the legend of Makhir. In 1144, Theobald, a Cambridge monk, spoke of “the chief Princes and Narbonne where the royal seed resides.” In 1165-66 Benjamin of Tudela, the famous Jewish traveller and chronicler, reports that in Narbonne there are “sages, magnates and princes at the head of whom is… a remnant of the House of David as stated in his family tree.”

Guillaume married into the family of Charlemagne, ruler of what came to be known as the first important European power, the Holy Roman Empire. As well as being descended from the Merovingians, Charlemagne was also descended from the Mithraic bloodline. The intermarriage of the House of Herod, the Julio-Claudian dynasty, the House of Commagene, and priest-kings of Emeasa, bifurcated into two important directions. One of these was the imperial line that eventually produced Constantine. These two bloodlines were finally reunited in the person of St. Arnulf, Bishop of Metz, the great-grandfather of Charlemagne.

It is frequently claimed by genealogists that all of European aristocracy can claim descent from Charlemagne. From the combined heritage of the Merovingians, Charlemagne and Guillaume of Gellone, emerged the kings of France, who would continue to use the Kabbalistic symbol of the lily as their heraldic symbol.


The Shabbetean Frankists:

While Freemasonry was devoted to a monarchist objective, it was not until the advent of the Illuminati that Freemasonry would be used for the definite aim of seeking world order. The Illuminati was a secret order, brought into being at the instigation of the notorious Rothschilds, who were adherents, according to scholar Rabbi Antelman, of a heretical sect that represented an evolution of Lurianic Kabbalah. The Rothschilds belonged to a sect known as the Shabbateans, incepted by the false-messiah, Shabbetai Zevi.

In 1666, Zevi, followed by his prophet, Nathan of Gaza, proclaimed himself the promised Messiah of Judaism. Zevi succeeded in rallying a large following, extending to nearly half of the Jewish population of the world at the time, including the Jews of Palestine, Egypt, and Eastern and Western Europe. The movement was shattered however, when, forced by the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire to choose martyrdom or conversion, Zevi chose conversion to Islam. However, some followed Zevi into conversion, and there is, down to the present time, an Islamic sect in Turkey that follows his teachings, known as the “Dönme”, who profess Islam outwardly, while adhering to a mixture of traditional and heretical Judaism in secret.

The Shabbatean heresy, which for some time survived in secret circles akin to something of a Masonic organisation, eventually reasserted itself through the sect known as the Frankists. The Frankists were also known as the Zoharists, or the Illuminated, or simply as Shabbateans Zevists.


The Illuminati Order:

According to Rabbi Marvin S. Antelman, in To Eliminate the Opiate, it was the founder of the Rothschild dynasty who convinced Adam Weishaupt to accept the Frankist doctrine, and who afterwards financed the Illuminati. The Rothschild family was founded by a Jewish goldsmith, born Amschel Moses Bauer, who decided to settle in Frankfurt, Germany. He opened a Counting House, and over the door placed his sign, a red shield, featuring a “Star of David”. As “red shield” in German is Roth Schild, Bauer’s son, Amschel Mayer Bauer, took on the name Rothschild.

Rothschild’s wealth was largely achieved through his association with the family of Hesse-Kassel. Landgrave Frederick II of Hesse-Kassel, was the wealthiest man in Europe, as well as a member of the Order of the Garter. Mayer Amschel arranged to hire 16,800 Hessian soldiers to assist the nephew of Federick’s wife, King George III of England, in suppressing the American Rebellion. When Frederick II of Hessen-Kassel died in 1785, Rothschild obtained total influence over his successor, Elector Wilhelm IX, who he managed to make one of the wealthiest monarchs of his time.

In 1773, Mayer Rothschild had invited twelve other wealthy and influential men, to convince them to pool their resources in a plot to bring about a new world order. Thus was Adam Weishaupt commissioned to establish the Illuminati. Though born Jewish, as a young boy, Weishaupt was educated by the Jesuits. On May 1, 1776, three years after the Jesuit order was disbanded by the Church, Weishaupt announced the foundation of the Illuminati.

St. Germain was in St Petersburg, where he participated in a conspiracy when the Russian army assisted Catherine the Great in usurping the throne from her husband Peter III of Russia. Catherine the Great is remembered as one of the “Enlightened Monarchs”, because she implemented several political and cultural reforms on behalf of the Illuminati. Voltaire, with whom she maintained regular correspondence, called her “Semiramis of Russia”, in reference to the ancient Babylonian queen, on whom the worship of the goddess Astarte was based. Catherine was succeeded by her son Csar Paul I. In her memoirs, she strongly implies that his father was not her husband Peter III, but her lover Sergei Saltykoff, one of many aliases of the Comte St. Germain.


The Asiatic Brethren

According to Albert Pike, a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason, and American Civil War general, the successors to the Illuminati were the Asiatic Brethren, a secret order created by Moses Dobrushka, Jacob Frank’s nephew and successor. The Asiatic Brethren, also known as the Fratres Lucis, or the Brotherhood of Light, comprised chiefly of Jews, Turks, Persians, and Armenians, and purportedly represented a survival of the same “Johannite Christians” rescued by the Templars, that is, the Sabians. Their full title was The Knights and Brethren of St. John the Evangelist.

The Grand Master of the Asiatic Brethren, and leading member of the Illuminati, was Prince Karl of Hessen-Kassel, the brother of Wilhelm, and cousin to Frederick II the Great of Prussia. Another member of the Asiatic Brethren was the Comte de St. Germain, a notorious charlatan and alchemist, whom many believed to be immortal. He continues to be regarded by many as the leading figure of modern occult history. St. Germain was a Grand Master of Freemasonry, and had become an acquaintance of Louis XV King of France and his mistress Madame de Pompadour. St. Germain was a permanent houseguest of Karl’s, who called him “the greatest philosopher who ever lived,” and nicknamed him “Papa”.

St. Germain was in St Petersburg, where he participated in a conspiracy when the Russian army assisted Catherine the Great in usurping the throne from her husband Peter III of Russia. Catherine the Great is remembered as one of the “Enlightened Monarchs”, because she implemented several political and cultural reforms on behalf of the Illuminati. Voltaire, with whom she maintained regular correspondence, called her “Semiramis of Russia”, in reference to the ancient Babylonian queen, on whom the worship of the goddess Astarte was based. Catherine was succeeded by her son Csar Paul I. In her memoirs, she strongly implies that his father was not her husband Peter III, but her lover Sergei Saltykoff, one of many aliases of the Comte St. Germain.


Egyptian Rite Freemasonry

Webster also suggests Falk was the source for the “Egyptian Rite” Cagliostro created in London. In order to justify this knowledge of Middle Eastern mysteries, Cagliostro claimed he was born an orphan on the Island of Malta. His earliest memories, he claimed, are of the holy city of Medina in Arabia, where he lived in the palace of the Mufti Salahaym. Four persons were attached to his service, the chief of whom was an Eastern Adept named Althotas, who instructed him in the various sciences and made him proficient in several Oriental languages. Though both teacher and pupil conformed outwardly to the religion of Islam, Cagliostro later wrote, “the true religion was imprinted in our hearts.”


The Palladian Rite

When Weishaupt died in 1830, Gieuseppe Mazzini, the leader of a plot to unify Italy, had been appointed head of the Illuminati in 1834. Mazzini had become a member of a revolutionary secret society by the name of the Carbonari, and in 1860 founded the Mafia. In 1870, Mazzini, Lord Henry Palmerston of England, Otto von Bismarck of Germany and Albert Pike, all thirty third degree Scottish Rite Masons, created a supreme universal rite of Masonry that would arch over all the other rites, even the different national rites. It centralised all high Masonic bodies in the world under one head. To this end the Palladium Rite was created as the pinnacle of the pyramid of power: an international alliance to bring in the Grand Lodges, the Grand Orient, the ninety-seven degrees of Memphis and Mizraim of Cagliostro, also known as the Ancient and Primitive Rite, and the Scottish Rite, or the Ancient and Accepted Rite.

Lord Palmerston, the Grand Patriarch or Master of Grand Orient Freemasonry, as well as knight of the Order of the Garter, was Queen Victoria’s Foreign Secretary. Palmerston was also Prime Minister during Britain’s Opium Wars against China, in 1840 and 1858, beginning a policy of narcotics exploitation that would later characterise the Illuminati’s strategy in the twentieth century. Albert Pike had served as a Brigadier-General in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, and was one of the founding fathers and head of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, being the Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859-1891. In 1869, he was a top leader of the Ku Klux Klan, and in 1871 wrote the Masonic handbook, the Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Freemasonry.

In addition to a Supreme Council located in Charleston, South Carolina, Pike established Supreme Councils in Rome, Italy, led by Mazzini; London, England, led by Palmerston; and Berlin, Germany, led by Bismarck. He set up 23 subordinate councils in places throughout the world, including five Grand Central Directories in Washington, DC (North America), Montevideo (South America), Naples (Europe), Calcutta (Asia), and Mauritius (Africa), which were used to gather information. These branches have been the secret headquarters for the Illuminati’s activities ever since.

In a letter he wrote to Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871, Pike graphically outlined plans for three world wars seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order. For a short time, this letter was on display in the British Museum Library in London, and was copied by William Guy Carr, former Intelligence Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy and author of Pawns in the Game. Carr summarises:

The First World War was to be fought so as to enable the Illuminati to overthrow the powers of the Tzars in Russia and turn that country into the stronghold of Atheistic-Communism. The differences stirred up by the Agentur of the Illuminati between the British and German Empires were to be sued to foment this war. After the war ended, Communism was to be built up and used to destroy other governments and weaken religions.

World War Two was to be fomented by using the differences between Fascists and Political Zionists. This was to be fought so that Nazism would be destroyed and the power of Political Zionism increased so that the sovereign state of Israel could be established in Palestine. During world war two International Communism was to be built up until it equaled in strength that of united Christendom. At this point it was to be contained and kept in check until required for the final social cataclysm...

World War Three is to be fomented by using the differences the agentur of the Illuminati stir up between Political Zionists and the Leaders of the Moslem world. The war is to be directed in such a manner that Islam and Political Zionism (including the State of Israel) will destroy themselves while at the same time the remaining nations, once more divided against each other on this issue, will be forced to fight themselves into a state of complete exhaustion physically, mentally, spiritually and economically.


Paul the Gnostic
http://www.surrenderingislam.com/surren ... ul-gnostic

It was also with Magi that Herod the Great conferred, by which he learned that a Messiah had been born, after which he attempted the “slaughter of the innocents”, in his attempt to suppress the rise of Jesus. Though he did not initially succeed, the House of Herod and the affiliated families, attempted to instead subvert the movement he started. Their agent in this project seems to have been Paul.

Paul understood the resurrected Jesus as a mystical figure, the Primordial Man. The original man, or Archetypal Man, formed before the human or earthly man, is the true image of God, the beginning of creation and the Lord of it. Paul says, in I Corinthians 15:45-47:

So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living soul”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven.

Valentinus, leader of one of the most important Gnostic sects, claimed that he received initiation into a secret doctrine of God from a disciple of Paul. Paul taught this secret wisdom not to everyone, and not publicly, but only to a select few.

What this secret tradition reveals is that the one whom most Christians ignorantly worship as creator, God, the Father, is in reality, only the image of the true God. According to Valentinus, the orthodox preachers mistakenly ascribed to God what actually applies only to another god. Whoever achieves this gnosis is ready to receive the secret sacrament called redemption, meaning “release,” or freedom from moral obligation.

Paul, who abandoned the teachings of Jesus, then being maintained by Jesus’ followers, who comprised the Early Church of Jerusalem, exemplified in the Book of Matthew, and replaced it with an esoteric interpretation which borrowed on the occult idea of the sacrificed god dying for our sins. As Paul’s cult spread throughout the Christianised world, the original Early Church was eclipsed.

This transformation was reinforced by the influence of another occult-influenced philosopher from Alexandria, known as Philo the Jew. Philo drew his influence from the Therapeutae and was known for his attempt to assimilate the doctrines of Platonism to Judaism. It was he who was the first to attempt to identify the pagan trinity as a Jewish idea and of the dying-god as the “first-begotten”. The early Church Fathers were avid students of Philo and attempted to do for Christianity what he did for Judaism. It was in this way that the occult concept of Jesus as the “Son of God” became a core doctrine of Catholic Christianity, under the authority of Constantine the Great, at the Council of Nicea in 325 AD.


King Arthur
http://www.surrenderingislam.com/surren ... ing-arthur

Constantine was the last in a long time of rulers, descended from the priest-kings of Emesa, who had intermarried with the Houses of Herod, Commagene, and the Julio-Claudian line of Emperors They had been responsible through the centuries, of attempting to impose the religion of Elegabalus, a version Baal, also known as Sol Invictus, the “Invincible Sun”, which was closely related to the cult of Mithraism. They finally succeded in Constantine the Great; he ended the project incepted by Herod to subvert the emerging Christian movement by corrupting it into disguised Mithras worship.

This important bloodline was continued in a descendant of Constantine, known as Arthur, King of the Britons, made famous by the legends of the Holy Grail. According to British chroniclers of the Middle Ages, Constantine was also descended from another prominent Grail figure, Joseph of Arimathea. It was Joseph of Arimathea who, when he heard of Jesus’ death, requested from Pilate permission to remove the body. Joseph of Arimathea then retrieved the body, and placed it in his own tomb, an act witnessed by Mary Magdalene and “the other Mary”. Then, according to Matthew 27:57-66:

By this time, Joseph of Arimathea would have removed the body, and conspired with the two Marys to spread the message that Jesus had resurrected from the dead, thus supposedly confirming his identity as a dying-god. One of these Marys was Mary Magdalene. Controversy has been aroused to suggest that Mary Magdalene was married to Jesus, and possibly had a child from him. However, these claims belong to Gnostics texts, where Mary Magdalene came to be identified with harlotry, because of an esoteric interpretation which regards her as a “sacred prostitute”, who officiates at the mysteries or as goddess and consort to the “son of god”.

In the eighth century AD, Rabanus Maurus, Archbishop of Mayence, stated in the Life of Mary Magdalene that Joseph of Arimathea was sent to Britain, accompanied by, in addition to Mary Magdalene and Lazarus, Salome. There is some contention as to the exact identity of Salome. One Salome was the step-daughter of Herod Antipas, the son of Herod the Great. When Salome danced before him at the occasion of his birthday, she so pleased him that he promised her anything she would request. She asked for the head of John the Baptist. The crew then land in Britain and with them was the “Holy Grail”, which was concealed for safekeeping at Glastonbury Tor, where Joseph established the first church in the British Isles, which developed into Glastonbury Abbey.

The prominence of Britain in this tale is a mark of its long-standing affiliation with the practice of the occult. Scholars have in fact speculated that, already at the beginning of the first millennium BC, the Phoenicians ventured as far as Britain to exploit the tin trade. The Britons traced their descent to Brutus, grandson of Ascanius. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, written in the ninth century AD, begins by saying that the Britons, like the Saxons, came from Armenia and the Picts of Scotland from the south of Scythia. The idea that the Scots came from Scythia is found in most legendary accounts and also in unedited versions of the Venerable Bede.

According to the ancient chronicles of Ireland, the lineage of the Britons was supplemented in the sixth century BC, with the royal blood of King David, resulting in the kings of Scotland. Irish legend maintains that the Scottish originate from Fenius Farsaidh, a descendant of Edom, who founded kingdom of Scythia. Fenius’ son Nel married Scota, an Egyptian. Scota and Nel had a son, Goidel Glas, the eponymous ancestor of the Gaels, who was expelled from Egypt, shortly after the Exodus of the Israelites by a pharaoh.

After much traveling, his descendants settled in Hispania, also known as Iberia, or modern Spain and Portugal, where Mil Espaine was born. It was the sons of Mil who established the Gaelic presence in Ireland.

According to the ancient Irish, Scottish, and English Chronicles, in or about the year 583-582 BC, a princess called “Tamar Tephi” came from Egypt by way of Spain, and landed on the northeast coast of Ireland. When the Jews were persecuted by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, King Zedekiah acceded to the throne of Jerusalem in 598 BC. Twelve years later, Jerusalem fell to Nebuchadnezzar, whereupon Zedekiah was taken to Babylon and blinded, and his sons were murdered, except for his daughter Tamar. She found her way to Ireland, where she married King Eochaid I of Ireland, from whom all the High Kings of Ireland descended.

In the fifth century AD, Fergus Mor, a direct descendant of Eochaid and Tamar, had migrated into Scotland. Fergus’ grandson was referred to by Geoffrey of Monmouth, a British historian of the twelfth century, as the Uthir and Pendragon of the Celtic Isle. Uther Pendragon’s mother was supposedly a direct descendent of Joseph of Arimathea. Uther Pendagran was the father of King Arthur.

Arthur’s sorcerer Merlin would have been a Druid, in the tradition of the Celts. The Celtic religion that existed in Britain prior to the arrival of Christianity, also showed evidence of Kabbalistic influence. As early as the first centuries AD, it was believed that the Celts learned the arts of the Babylonian “Magi” through the students of Pythagoras. According to Pliny the Elder, in the first century AD, magic, meaning the cult of the Magi, was so entrenched in Britain that he said it would almost seem as if it was the British who had taught it to the Babylonians, and not the other way around.

The Nephalim and the Return of the Fisher Kings – Part 6

The Royals and the Antichrist
http://www.cephas-library.com/prophecy_ ... hrist.html

The marriage of Charles to Diana was so extremely important because Diana brought one aspect of the Merovingian Bloodline back to the English crown. Greatest among the princess's forebearers were the Stuart kings, (Charles II and James II.) She unwittingly gave this bloodline to the current Royal Family, and thus her son Prince William was the first child to claim lineage from every English king who has left descendants.

Nostradamus was a member of the "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Sion" which was freemasonry. In his quatrains he refers to the advent of "Le Grand Monarch" indicating that this sovereign will ultimately derive from the Merovingian dynasty implying a double hegemony of the Papacy and the Empire, of the Vatican and of the Habsburgs. He frequently referred to the Knights Templars and to the house of Lorraine which is now synonymous with the Habsburgs.

In the belief system of 'British Isrsael' it is taught that the literal descendants of the lost ten-tribed House of Israel are found today in the British Commonwealth of Nations, the United States of America, and certain areas of north-western Europe, particularly Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Holland.

Israel has become "a nation and a company of nations" (Genesis 35:11) - the U.S.A. (a nation), and the British Commonwealth (a company of nations).

The people to be reigned over by David's throne were to be descendants of the tribes of Israel, who migrated from Palestine through Europe to the "appointed place" (2 Samuel 7:10), identified as the (British) "Isles" (Isaiah 41:1).
The British Coat of Arms, like all heraldry, contains much symbolism and provides strong evidence of the nation's origin and ancestry. It clearly displays the national emblems of ancient Israel.

In the beginnings of the Bible story we read how Israel, whose former name was Jacob, obtained the God-given birthright of an everlasting national covenant.

Under the shield is a motto, "Dieu et mon droit" meaning "GOD AND MY RIGHT", referring to this birthright.

The following book describes The Bloodline of the Holy Grail by Laurence Gardner:

'Virgin' from the Merovingian Bloodline to marry into, in effect, finally legitimizing their long held occult power and authority claimed of them as well as pouring the most Holy Blood of Christ into any child to come from such a union, and so, a Merovingian Virgin was sought by the Windsor's and found in Diana Spencer.

This Magdeline heresy prepared in secret by the Knights Templar, a shadowy blood cult who had its birth in the dark recesses underneath Jerusalem near the Temple Mount at the time of the Crusades, is where most Grail lineage theorists begin. However, the actual plan to bring about a Messiah from the Merovingian line did not begin with these nine men, it can be traced as far back to the ancient Celtic Druids, and far beyond them to a magickal priesthood some label only as Atlantean.

Royalty has followed quietly along the path that ends with the greatest Occult secret being revealed to the world, to their own future horror. Many of today's occult and "fraternal orders" such as the Scottish Rite Freemasons, and many others trace their spiritual roots to Templarism as they are the gatekeepers, perhaps to hell itself.

A British-led Anglo-Empire uniting the world in 'peace' while bringing forth a Merovingian Arthurian - like leader to the forefront and we have all the makings of a grand global conspiracy. We aren't directly told who this future ruler might be, yet the Occult underground is supposedly preparing their ranks for a young and charismatic Prince who will be seen by many in the future as King Arthur returned.

Both Prince Charles and Prince William carry the name 'Arthur' as middle names.

"...King Arthur is not dead, but he shall come again and he shall win the Holy Cross. I will not say it shall be so, but rather I will say there is written upon his tomb this verse: Hic Jacet Arthurus, Rex Quondam, Rexque Futurus...Here lies Arthur, the Once and Future King."

Despite all the myriad of Celtic genealogical falsehoods leading back to King David, elaborate charts, faked scrolls, Jewish mysticism, gematria, Kaballah, Zohar, and so-called Bible codes, (that supposedly prove all claims), the religious in Israel are becoming intrigued with the idea.

Just as Laurence Gardner and other researchers are putting forth a tremendous effort at proving their heretical information about Christ's Bloodline being found in European and British Royalty which is mainly targeted to those of a responsive Christian, even Pagan mind - there is also a Jewish force doing the same, albeit targeting a Jewish audience.

Rabbi Avraham Feld, Yair Davidy and many others are themselves leading a huge American, Israeli, and European following built upon this same heresy stating the modern British as being descended from Ephraim, ultimately that England and all of the Celtic peoples are Lost Tribes of Israel with the British Royals being ordained by God.

The underlying implication in all this is that Israel now has a new direction to look in when considering their choice of a Messiah-King (see Daniel 11:21), and with Davidy's work, it's becoming much clearer to them, they only need to look west towards Britain (carefully watch the nation of Israel as it is God's Prophetic timepiece. Every single action Israel is making currently in her necessary defense is inevitably moving the planet closer to Armageddon because of those who hate her. Soon after the comet and war, the Antichrist (the false "prince of peace") arises and you are already witnessing the first signs towards Israel's eventual meeting with destiny and her "great Peacemaker," this false Messiah, because her need for peace is so great.)

The ancient Roman-built port city of Londinium [London], from whence this new 'Rome' grew, later placed itself as Capitol to the world though it's own (Roman-styled) British Empire dominating the Western Hemisphere and civilization whereby London ruled the world (and still rules to this very day).

The last world Roman Empire mentioned is to be built upon the rapidly forming European Union, and will return to full power once again after America, the current Rome, relinquishes her mighty power which would then find it's way back to Europe and England which gave it. America being removed as leading world power will most assuredly prompt the need for another Atlantic Anglo-power (England) to take the reigns of global dominance and once more establish her rule of law and western zionist idealogy throughout the rest of the known world, and fill the void as Israel's sole protector.

The Lost Keys of Freemasonry: The Secret of Hiram Abiff

"The day has come when Fellow Craftsman (Freemasons) must know and apply their knowledge. The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion, which places the energy of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly. The seething energies of LUCIFER are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply [this] energy.

He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain." Tubal-Cain* was the great Vulcan of the era, the holder of Plutonic theory (knowledge of the actions of internal heat) and was, therefore, the prominent alchemist. [*Tubal-Cain; well-known Cainite Patriarch adored within secret societies; see also Genesis 4:22; Tubal-Cain was a sixth descendant of Cain] Qayin (Cain/Kain) - properly Q’ayin or 'Smith’ - Qayin’s heritage was that of the ancient Sumerian metallurgists and the supreme Master of the Craft was Qayin’s father Enki, described as ‘the manifestation of all knowledge.'

The Thirteenth Bloodline has been traced as far back and east into Ancient Egypt, Sumeria, and Persia, as well as in Rome. This is important and makes a vital connection to many because their "sacred" symbol, the All-Seeing Eye above the Pyramid, which is originally traced even farther back to Atlantis, was also found throughout much of the ancient world and wherever their 'secret societies' went.

The All-Seeing-Eye over the pyramid represents the totality of the Great Work, which is to place one King on the world throne. The Eye above the 13 steps is the Egyptian god Horus, Son of Osiris (Lord of the Underworld). With this we can determine that the Eye therefore represents Lucifer's Son, the Antichrist. It is also said the entire symbol itself denotes the Satanic trinity thru its Egyptian counterparts in the Father Osiris, Mother Isis, and their magickal Child, Horus.

Great Britain is certainly the mother country of Satanism and the British Royal Family has long been involved with the Occult; Masons even refer to the Queen of England in one of their own Satanic rites as the 'Queen of Babylon.' The Royal Family have also been actively involved with Freemasonry and most notably, the Garter Order, as well as the Scottish Knights Templar. British Intelligence MI6 has been a major vehicle for the Satanic hierarchy working behind the secret veil of Freemasonry to control world events thru assassinations, sabotage, and intrigue.


Committee of 300 by Dr.John Coleman
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/ ... sfasttrack

According to John Coleman, The Committee of 300 is a secret society of top royalty, politicians, businessmen, economists, military commanders, intellectuals, scientists and religious authorities who work towards the Illuminati plan via another organization, The Round Table. This Arthurian symbolism suggests British influence, dating from the British Empire (which included such figures as Cecil Rhodes, H. G. Wells and the Fabian socialists) which some hoped would provide the basis for a world government. Most people believe the British Empire is long gone, but Coleman suggests the Empire is still very much with us. Its overt power has simply been replaced by covert power, behind the scenes. The Round Table network of the Committee of 300 is made up of organizations like the Council of Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Rockefeller Group, the World Trade Organization, the 1001 Club of the Isles, the Club of Rome and the various international intelligence agencies - last, but by no means least, the Royal Institute of International Affairs. So where did all this have its origins?

The Nephilim "Overlords", the “Royal Wedding” and the Return of the Fisher Kings

LUCIFER'S DESTINY - Royal Wedding, Birthquakes & Resurrection
http://www.goroadachi.com/etemenanki/lu ... estiny.htm

The Prince William Royal Engagement prediction last fall was one such "wake-up call which is why I decided to start this article with it. It helps (new) readers quickly realize they are dealing with not some new-age mumbo-jumbo but something with substance reflecting hidden truths.

As it turns out, I was much more explicit in my Royal Engagement prediction post dated October 20, 2010:

And we may well see it come to life right there around late October-early November. I'm talking about the announcement of the engagement & imminent wedding of Prince William & Kate Middleton:

This will open the 'floodgate'. And I'm projecting that based on the trajectory of the collective pattern I've discerned the impact could easily arrive during our 'Halloween window' which I would define as late Oct-early Nov, anchored by the Venus inferior conjunction on October 29.

The definition of a Venus "inferior conjunction" is Venus being positioned between the Sun and Earth or in other words the formation of a Sun-Venus-Earth alignment. When it's so precise that Venus passes right in front of the Sun as seen from the Earth, it's called the "Transit of Venus" which occurs very rarely and in pairs. We are currently in the middle of a "Mayan Venus transit pair" in 2004/2012.

Something magical happens when you trace a series of successive Venus inferior conjunctions. By the time you reach the 6th conjunction, you will have drawn a near-perfect pentagram inscribed inside the Earth orbit. A Venus Transit pair - separated by 8 years - has four inferior conjunctions between them, six in total, neatly completing one pentagram in that time span.

For the current transit pair, October 29, 2010 was the last conjunction before the pentagram is complete, back at the starting position. Venus was "reborn" there as the "Morning Star." Each morning Venus will be visible for a longer period of time and higher in the sky. This is a phase of Venus when it's called the "Morning Star" also known as "Lucifer" (literally meaning "light bearer").

Inherent in the symbolism of the pentagram is the idea of the Underworld. In ancient Egypt, for example, a pentagram/5-pointed star in a circle denoted their Underworld "Duat" ruled by Osiris the god of the dead.

As we all witnessed, a pentagrammic portal between our world and the Underworld flung open in 2010, "the Year We Make Contact"...

The phoenix, it suggested, was coming out of the Underworld stressing the notion of "resurrection" in effect reiterating the narrative of Lucifer escaping the chthonic prison or the astronomical event of Venus's rebirth as the Morning Star. Then by way of pentachronometry it was subsequently implied that there is another, if not the main phoenix/Morning Star/Lucifer figure, in the form of William/Kate...

Two notable "twilight events" produced a specific angle, ~25 degrees from the north-south axis which happened to be the exact angle of the Phoenix constellation rising on the horizon within an hour after the "Mystery Missile launch" at sunset that day.

The moment of sunset itself would have seen the constellation making its way up right below the horizon and the cruise ship. Thus throughout the "magical" period of light giving way to darkness, Phoenix was in the process of being resurrected from the Underworld (death), which is the very essence of the legendary firebird.

At the nadir they would have seen Argo Navis - a defunct constellation - which is a big ship like Carnival Splendor, now broken up into a number of smaller constellations, the largest of which is called Carina (meaning "keel").

A clear, albeit coded, message was being sent concerning in particular the Royal Couple/Wedding. It's no coincidence that November 8 was right in the middle of a Royal Engagement period (Oct 20-Nov 16).

Prince William and Kate Middleton or Catherine Middleton

"Carina" and "Catherine" are variations of the same name. So is "Catalina". "Katherine/Catherine" is also said to derive from "Hecate," a Greco-Roman goddess of witchcraft, crossroads and the Underworld. Catalina = Carina = Catherine = Hecate = Underworld

Not just any Underworld, but in this case specifically "Avalon". That's the name of Catalina Island's only incorporated city (in effect its "capital"). "Avalon" also literally means "apple", a fruit that hides a 5-pointed star in its core.

Also of great esoteric significance, "Avalon" is the name of the island where King Arthur is said to be resting and is expected to return from. In other words, Avalon is the "Underworld" of the Once and Future King. And King Arthur is of course a British king archetype.

The implication being the wedding/rise of Prince William and Kate is, whether by design or by coincidence, designed to become a modern analogue of the "Resurrection of King Arthur".

A straightforward interpretation would be that Prince William will become King William in or around 2012. If not literal, then this should at least be a major symbolic storyline set to (if not already) drive key world events in/around 2010-2012.

All signs point to this royal stuff being of "cosmic" significance. Is there any particular reason behind the "retelling" of the medieval romance through William & Kate?

Resurrecting Grail Bloodline

It's real. It's real as far as it being a special strain of the British royal bloodline or more specifically the Stuart bloodline...

The senior Stewart descent goes all the way back to King Arthur's father, King Aedan of Scots, on the one hand and to Prince Nascien of the Septimanian Midi on the other. The Scots descent traces further back through King Lucius of Siluria to Bran the Blessed and Joseph of Arimathea (St James the Just), while the Midi succession stems from the Merovingians' male ancestral line through the Fisher Kings to Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Conjoining the lines from their 1st-century points of departure, the descent is in the succession of the Royal House of Judah. This is a truly unique line of sovereign lineage from King David in one of the key descents which comprise the Bloodline of the Holy Grail. [From Bloodline of the Holy Grail, pp. 344-5]

It is an established fact that Prince William is a descendant of multiple Stuart kings who ruled England, Scotland, and Ireland during the 16th and 17th centuries. That alone does not make William particularly "special". What makes him special is the fact that his bloodline, through his mother Princess Diana, can be traced back to King James II, Charles II, and through both of whom Charles I and James I. Although the House of Windsor (Prince William's father side) has also descended via the "Sophia Succession" from the first Stuart king on the English throne James I (1566-1625), Prince William (and Harry) is the first heir to the throne descended from either King James II (grandson of James I) or King Charles II (another grandson of James I), which makes him part of or at least closely related to the "Jacobite Succession".

The distinction is critical and makes all the difference. This is due to the historical fact that there was a major split involving two Stuart factions, those of the "Sophia Succession" and those of the "Jacobite Succession" during the reign of King James II (1685-1688). There the royal bloodline/succession became contentious as James II was ousted by William III of Orange married to his daughter Mary Stuart (Mary II). James II fled the country and "King Billy" and Mary II started their joint rule. James II, now crownless but still alive, and with his ouster supposedly "illegal", a sizable number and supporters continued to follow him and his sons. Those became known as the "Jacobites" who would engage in a series of battles in an effort to restore the "lost" king (bloodline) in his rightful place.

Princess Diana was a direct descendant through multiple illegitimate lines of multiple Stuart kings on the "Jacobite side" (James II & Charles II/I). In this less-than-obvious way Prince William & Harry emerged as the first (real/male) heirs to the throne descended from either Charles II or James II. In other words, the union of Princess Diana and Prince Charles - embodied by William & Harry signifies the reunification of the two battling Stuart bloodlines, i.e. the Sophia Succession and the Jacobite Succession reunited at last after more than 300 years!

Add to this the aforementioned notion of a Stuart "Grail bloodline" and we may have here what literally or at least symbolically amounts to the "Grail resurrection" or "Return of King Arthur". Prince William, Catherine, and their future child will thus represent a modern "re-imagination" of the Grail Trinity, Christ, Mary Magdalene, and their child or the supposed origin of the "Grail bloodline".

In a way, the Royal Wedding and the whole system of "signs" surrounding it represent a microcosm of where we are in history and the evolution of mankind. We, the human species, may be on the verge of experiencing a "quantum leap" in evolution. So dramatic is this leap, perhaps, that it might be something akin to "ascension". At least that is the narrative we can infer from another aspect of the November 8 twin events heavily interacting with Arthur C. Clarke's classic sci-fi novel Childhood's End (1953).

Clarke also wrote "2010: The Year We Make Contact" (book/film), so the timing was right for this "coincidence".

Especially since, like 2010, the novel also deals with the issue of Contact with extraterrestrial intelligence in a less abstract way. Clarke in Childhood's End gives us living and breathing aliens, flesh and blood like us... except they look like demons.

They are called "Overlords" who came to oversee the "final phase" of human evolution, which is to merge with the "Overmind" - a god-like cosmic intelligence. The Overlords themselves are somehow incapable of this merger and their function in the universe is to serve the Overmind by helping other species make the cosmic transition which is one of going from beings of flesh and blood to one existing on a higher plane of existence, i.e. "ascension". The Overlords are in effect "midwives" giving assistance to those "giving birth".

In the demonic-looking Overlords we can see a clear reflection of "Lucifer" (fallen angel) which as we've seen is everywhere during this "Rebirth"/Resurrection" period around "2010".

The Overlords, who Arthur C. Clarke reveals in Childhood's End, are from a star system in Carina.

The phantom light was beginning to wane. Now it was a fading streak, pointing to the heart of the constellation Carina, as Jan had known that it would. The home of the Overlords was somewhere out there...

- from Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke


Argo Navis
http://www.ianridpath.com/startales/argo.htm

Argo is a constellation that is not so much disused as dismantled. It was one of the 48 constellations known to Greek astronomers, as listed by Ptolemy in the Almagest, but astronomers in the 18th century found it large and unwieldy and so divided it into three parts: Carina, the Keel or body, Puppis, the Poop (i.e. stern), and Vela, the Sails. Were the three parts to be reunited, the resulting figure would be almost 28% larger in area than the current largest constellation, Hydra. The modern constellation Pyxis, the compass, occupies the area of the sails, but is not considered a part of the original Argo.

The Freemasons begin their calendar from A.L., “In the Year of Light,” found by adding 4000 to the modern year. Thus 1990 + 4000 is equal to 5990 A.L. George Michanowsky wrote in “The Once and Future Star” that “the Ancient Sumerian cuneiform described a giant star exploding within a triangle formed by Zeta Puppis, Gamma Velorum and Lambda Velorum located in the southern sky. (An) accurate star catalogue now stated that the blazing star that had exploded within the triangle would again be seen by man in 6000 years.” According to the Freemason’s calendar it will occur around 2000 and indeed it will.

Stolen Birthrights in the Old Testament?

Genealogy of Adam and the Twelve Tribes
http://www.johnpratt.com/items/docs/adam_gen/intro.html

These seven [twelve] charts contain the genealogy of all mankind for his first 1700 years, and of the "chosen line" down to the sons of the twelve sons of Israel, about 500 years later. The genealogy of the wives of these twelve is also included, as well as that of the wives of many of the patriarchs such as Noah, Lamech, and Shem.


1. Cain and Abel

Cain's Wife?
http://www.drjpdawson.com/cainwife.html

The Bible does tell us that Cain was the first born of Adam and Eve, and the second was Abel. There is not a great deal of information on Cain in the Bible, but we know Cain was a tiller of the soil and Abel was a keeper of sheep. Cain brought an offering to the Lord "of the fruit of the ground," while Abel offered "of the firstlings of his flock." Abel's offering was acceptable to the Lord, but God rejected Cain's offering. We do not know for sure why God rejected Cain's offering and accepted Abel's, but several theories have been advanced.

1) Abel's offering was best, but this is not substantiated by Scripture. Abel offered the best he had, while Cain did not?

2) Cain's offering was not a blood offering as was Abel's. This has been advanced because of the blood sacrifice requirements for the atonement of sin in the Old Testament. This assumes that God had given prior instructions for the sacrifice for sin.

3) Cain's attitude was wrong and that "by faith Abel gave a more excellent sacrifice.

Cain was reproved by God for his anger over the offering being rejected, and he later slew his brother, Abel. Cain was put under a curse by God and marked so no one would harm him. But, we are told that Cain was fearful of vengeance by others who might slay him, that he knew his wife, and even that he built a city in Nod. The Scriptures do not tell us how old Cain was when he slew Abel or how many children were born during or after this interim. But we are told that Seth was born when Adam was 130 years old, and Adam lived to be 930. How many children could have been born during this time? For Cain to have built a city there must have been many people living at that time. The descendants of Cain and the antediluvian civilization which they developed are described in Genesis 4:17-24

Skeptics have, of course, "wondered" where all those other people came from if no one except Adam, Eve, and Cain were living at this time. Henry Morris writes:

However, the real reason for this criticism is merely the evolutionary presupposition that such critics hold. They are unwilling to believe that God started the human race by special creation of one man and one woman, preferring instead to believe that man came instead as a slowly evolving population of primates which eventually acquired what we consider human characteristics about one or two million years ago.

However, the Lord Jesus Christ, who was Himself man's Creator in the beginning taught otherwise. Jesus said:
"Have ye not read that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female" Matthew 19:4.

Thus the creation of Adam and Eve, as the ancestors of the human race, was "at the beginning," not after millions of years of evolution of a pre-human population of animals.

According to Scripture man was created in the beginning, and would have lived forever had he not sinned. "By one man sin entered into the world and death by sin."

Even after the reign of decay and death entered the world at the time of God's great Curse on man's dominion, most men did live for hundreds of years and undoubtedly had large families. Adam and Eve are said to have had both "sons and daughters" during the 930 years of Adam's lifetime, and the same is true of each of the other antediluvian patriarchs listed in the genealogies of Genesis 5. The average life-span of these patriarchs was 912 years. This average lifetime excludes Enoch, who God took to heaven when he was 365 years old, and Lamech who died at 777 years old. Lamech was probably caught in the flood.

In both passages the word "replenish" was used. What did God mean by "replenish"? In the case of Noah we can understand that the men of earth were destroyed and God probably meant for Noah and his sons to "go forth and repopulate the earth." Did he mean the same thing in Genesis 1:28 when He gave the same instructions to Adam and Eve? The new versions of the Bible change the word "replenish" to "fill", but the Jewish dictionaries still give the word as "replenish".

If there was a pre-Adamic race, this would eliminate the "incest" problem stated above. The difference between the two "races" would be the indwelling Spirit of God. The earth could be twenty thousand years old according to the decay of the earth's magnetic field and the proposed decay of the speed of light.

If one accepts this age for the earth, then what was here on the earth during this early time period? Could the dinosaurs and cavemen have been here? We know from Scripture that the dinosaurs were not here at the time of the flood, because the Scriptures say that "two of each land animal" were on Noah's ark But, Job gives a description of the Behemoth that certainly sounds like an animal similar to a dinosaur. Job also describes an amphibious animal that sounds like a dragon.

There are other scientific evidences that point to an earth of this age. (See The Days of Peleg). The article on Sevens shows how one might project the generations to a similar time frame for earth's existence. But remember this is speculation - only the Scriptures are inerrant. But it is interesting.

The two most common accusations against Satanists/Witches have traditionally been their supposed disruption, by hexing, of the Christ ordained family concept (causing impotence in husbands, and so forth, ref.

Maleus Malleficarum and blood sacrifice.

It is said that The Devil quotes scripture to prove his point. Let us therefore see what the Judaeo-Christian scriptures themselves have to say on the subjects of marriage, the family and blood sacrifice:

BLOOD SACRIFICE: SATANIC OR JEHOVIC?

Whether or not Satanists have inappropriately indulged in ritual killing in the past, it is a fact that blood-sacrifice is sanctioned by the Judeo-Christian god; it is a hangover from the primitive past, a part of both pagan and Judeo-Christian religious heritages, but where is there a specific Satanic sanctioning for it?

Turning to Genesis, we find that Jehovah was pleased with Abel's blood sacrifice, while he rejected the fruit offering of Cain, "a tiller of the ground." Genesis, Ch. 4.

Since Jehovah is supposed to possess precognition he presumably knew in advance that his rejection of Cain's noble offering would result in ispute between the brothers and lead to murder. Jehovah was therefore guilty of setting-up Cain, but nevertheless it's always his hapless human children who must take the rap for his own lunatic whims and actions.

The supremacy of blood sacrifice was therefore clearly established in the first chapter of the Old Testament, and culminates in the blood sacrifice of the tyrant-god's own alleged son in the New Testament.

In other books of the Old Testament blood sacrifice - both human and animal - is specifically sanctioned as an appropriate offering to Jehovah.

After giving birth it was commanded of Israelite women that they must bring a lamb as a burnt offering before Jehovah, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove for a sin offering, "unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest: who shall offer it before the Lord and make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood.

"And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons..." Lev. 12:6-8.

In accordance with a deal he made with Jehovah to "offer up as a burnt offering" the first to come from his house to meet him after slaughtering the Ammonites, Jephthah sacrificed his daughter.

Judges, 11:29-39.

II Samuel records that David allowed the Gibeonites to sacrifice the sons of Saul before Jehovah to end a famine. II Samuel, 21: 1-14.


Cain and Abel
http://bewaredeception.com/index.php?op ... s&Itemid=3

The Church has traditionally taught that Adam’s younger son Abel who is depicted as righteous was a shepherd and that he on a certain occasion killed one of his lambs and presented its fat as a sweet smelling aroma to Yahweh.

Cain on the other hand is depicted as a farmer who presented an oblation – that is, a bloodless sacrifice – which consisted of herbs, vegetables and grains. It is claimed that God rejected Cain’s sacrifice but accepted Abel’s with which He was very pleased. Of course, the Church to date has not satisfactorily explained just why was Abel’s sacrifice accepted while Cain’s rejected.

Mostly it is argued that God rejected Cain’s sacrifice because it was bloodless and an oblation. But nothing can be further from the truth. Let us take a closer look at this subject but with an open and unbiased mind, if at all possible – since from childhood we were indoctrinated with the traditional teaching of the Church.

God Himself says that the original Law was corrupted and perverted by the lying pen of the scribes [Jeremiah 8:8]. Therefore it is reasonable to pose a question: is it possible that here we deal with the lying pen of the scribes and that the role of Abel and Cain is actually reversed? That is, is it at all possible that the original and uncorrupted text actually said that Abel presented an oblation and a bloodless sacrifice while Cain actually slaughtered an animal and presented its fat portions in sacrifice to God?

I believe this to be the case and I also believe that I can give sufficient evidence to vindicate this belief. I will first of all give extracanonical material and then analyze it in the light of the biblical evidence. In the Essene Humane Gospel which may or may not be authentic these words are ascribed to the lips of Jesus concerning Cain’s and Abel’s sacrifices:

“But ye believe that Moses commanded such creatures to be slain and offered as a sacrifice unto God and eaten. Ye believe wrongly; ye do not know of temple oblations; for at no time did the True God delight in or demand flesh and blood offerings, but only the pure oblation the unbloody sacrifice…For Abel offered up the grains and the fruits of the earth…But I tell ye: Satan, the evil one, maketh the truth a lie, and giveth to the sons of man, flesh and blood, the burnt offering, the unholy law of evil doers, things that my Holy Father hateth and abhoreth. Know ye not, before ye standeth one greater than even Moses! Yea, even the holy one, who Moses spake of is here and restoreth the truth of the law, that all may for a certainty know that God is true and every man whosoever keepeth not the Holy Law is a liar. For I tell ye, the Holy Law of Moses and Adam are one; even as my Prophets spake unto Israel, I speak. The Holy Law changeth not, but evil men speak according to their desires of the flesh and lust after things unlawful. For of that, which ye offer unto God in purity, ye may eat of freely, for it is lawful, but of that kind which ye offer not in purity, shall ye not eat. The hour cometh when all sacrifices and blood feasts shall cease, and ye shall again worship God according to holy law and a pure oblation.”

Here we are told that Abel actually offered a pure oblation and in fact the bloodless sacrifice - fruits and grains. This ancient gospel therefore reverses the roles of Cain and Abel. In another part of the Essene Humane Gospel Jesus said:

“And did not Abel know the pure oblation and was put to death on account - for Satan entered into Cain and bloodshed was manifested in the earth, and man and beast crieth unto God and God heareth their cries. ‘But I did not recognize Cain’s blood offering’ nor did God the evil of Satan but grieved over the evil of mankind that spread over the land even as waters cover the sea basin. For truly, I say to you, for this end have I come into the world that I may put away all blood offering and eating of flesh.”

It is also pointed out that Abel actually did as was the custom of his father - implying that Adam himself was always presenting a pure oblation and not a bloody sacrifice. The Book of Jubilees - written in Hebrew - which was discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls and which was held in great esteem at Qumran, corroborates the fact that Adam actually offered an oblation and therefore a bloodless sacrifice:

This ancient papyrus which is dated to the 5 century B.C.E. clearly shows that in Elephantine the Jews did not follow Hezekiah’s and Josiah’s reforms nor did they, like other Jews, sacrifice only in Jerusalem or present bloody sacrifices. The document clearly shows that these Jews appealed to the former practice of pure oblation only. Christians generally believe and argue that the reason why Cain’s sacrifice was rejected is because it was not a blood sacrifice. But Jesus, according to this Essene gospel argues that exactly opposite is true. Jesus says that Abel was killed because of his pure sacrifice and that bloodshed was manifested in the Earth against both animals and humans through Satan’s influence on Cain. Jesus further pointed out that his explicit mission on this Earth was to put an end to both animal sacrifice and meat eating.


Cain and Abel
http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=104393

One of the most interesting stories which modern thinkers have realized must have been significantly changed when incorporated into the narrow confines of post Egyptian ancient Jewish perceptions is the Story of Cain and Abel.

Although the story I will provide a perspective upon has been well known amongst scholars since the late middle ages, and has an established and far reaching folk tradition in far more ancient cultures throughout Asia and Africa, and is likely familiar to any of you who has studied modern psychology, philosophy, or theology;

I feel it has yet to really hit people as to how different, and may I say more in touch with the human spirit, were the "original", oldest myths which were born from the psyche, rather than an organized secular institution with clear agendas (suppress and control and let the ones at the top prosper).

"Shepherd" and "Farmer"

(a) Abel

Bible translations that are promoted by Western religious establishments portray Abel as a "shepherd" (or similar expressions, like "keeper of sheep," etc.). The Hebrew of the Masoretic text, however, speaks of "ro'e tson," which, in the most ancient traditions, carries quite a different meaning.

We know that the Hebrew 'ro'e' is etymologically related to the modern French 'roué,' a debauched person. And indeed, the earliest sources portray Abel as disreputable.

But that is only the beginning.

The ancient sources, as they have been preserved in the treasure of popular traditions, show Abel, this "shepherd" of the false bibles, as actually the originator of the rapacious, private-enterprise, wheeling and dealing in livestock that has been part of human history ever since. These early thieves and robbers preyed on the poor and exploited from earliest times. Abel has always been seen, in the traditions of the lower classes, as representing the class enemy, the armed general of the exploiting class. In these sources, "Abel" is used as shorthand for later figures of the same type. Over and over, these Abels, in ancient and medieval history, have preyed on farmers and working people, murdering, killing, and robbing. And in the early events portrayed in Genesis (in its authentic version) show this first Abel as the killer of his brother Cain.

Perhaps even more instructive than folk tales and ancient scripture, however, is the evidence from archetypes in the recorded dream world of the human race. The great Swiss scholar Carl Jung, among other insurgent scholars, has been able to prove that the conventional Genesis versions are fraudulent.

Wherever we look in this rich depository of human consciousness represented by archetypes, we find an Abel-like predator, wielding the knife of assassination and violation. This figure is always associated with the mercenary dealing in livestock and the robbery of the working farmers. And equally ubiquitous, ruling-class theoreticians have represented "shepherds" as benign and caring. It is the caring of the wolf, of course, not exactly a friend of the sheep!

(b) Cain

The demonization of Cain by the ruling classes throughout history sometimes had a comical side.

What was Cain's occupation? The conventional Hebrew bible editions say that he [was] "oved adamah," 'a tiller of the soil.' But this interpretation is clearly a distortion of the most original sources. The vowel "o" that modern Jewish (and Christian) versions use here is not justified by the ancient sources. A profound study of these traditional materials reveals, with great clarity, that the initial vowel should be read as "e," so the correct term is "eved adamah," a 'slave of the land.' So it turns out that, from the beginning, as the story was understood by ordinary people from earliest times, Cain was the slave of Abel. The struggle between Cain and Abel, as the oppressed have always known, was a class struggle. Abel had the power and the weapons, and Cain became his victim, in the first recorded homicide. At least that is the tradition handed down among working people.

The Act of Killing

The key passage in Genesis about the alleged killing of Abel by Cain is in chapter 4, verse 8: "Cain set upon his brother Abel and killed him." The three-word English expression "and killed him" is rendered in the Hebrew by the single term 'vayarhargehu," where the prefix 'va' is translated as "and," the postfix 'hu' is rendered in English as 'him,' with the median root letters 'heh,' 'resh,' 'gimel,' (HRG) referring to the verb "to kill."

In the older Indo-European languages there is a system of inflection that distinguishes, among other things, between a subject and an object, so it will always be clear who kills whom in those languages. But in Hebrew there is no such inflection, and therefore the question of who kills whom, here and elsewhere in the Bible, has to be deduced from word order alone. So the arrangement of the nouns, in this case the proper names, is crucial to our understanding of who is murderer and who is victim.

It is at this point that it becomes clear that the demonization of Cain has no warrant in the authentic Bible sources.

The late Professor Harry M. Orlinsky, a distinguished expert on Bible translation, explains the details of conventional Genesis 4:8 misrepresentation, adding such ancient versions as Septuagint, Samaritan, and Targum Jonathan not to mention the Peshittan and Vulgate, reject the demonization of Cain.

Collective Consciousness

Transmission of the wisdom of the ages, of course, is not restricted to written records. In fact the unwritten tradition is in certain matters more reliable because it is less subject to manipulation by the powers that be.

In the case of the Cain-Abel legend, it turns out that the unwritten transmission has become a bulwark for preserving the truth.

We noted previously the contributions to this subject by Jungian psychologists. But Jungians have certainly not been the only ones to unearth the strata of truth beneath the mountains of fashionable misrepresentation. A careful study of the writings of Susan Deri, Max Pulver, Werner Wolff, Leopold Bellak, and many others, reveals that the murder drive, as exemplified by the crime of Abel against Cain, has been discovered in dreams and folk tales throughout the ages.

Nobody has been more specific on the Cain matter than the Hungarian-born psychiatrist Leopold Szondi (1893-1986). Born in the old Austro-Hungarian empire as Leopold Sonnenstein, he Magyarized his name in 1911, following the assimilationist tendency of many Hungarian Jews. He became a physician in Hungary, and during the Second World War was briefly imprisoned at Bergen-Belsen by the Germans. After the war he settled in Switzerland, where I myself had the privilege of meeting with him on several occasions. He practiced a form of psychoanalysis there for many years, until his death in 1986.

In the United States, Szondi was known chiefly as the inventor of the "Szondi test." But he was also a powerful thinker and theorist on psychoanalysis. Many hold that he was as important as Sigmund Freud. But be that as it may, he was certainly a great pioneer in psychoanalytic circles concerning the place and importance of the collective memory of the human race.

And he devoted two books to Cain, showing, in each, that Cain had been the victim, Abel the perpetrator, at least in the collective unconscious of all the nations that he studied. These books are not available in English. Except for the most courageous of academic libraries, you will search for them in vain in bookstores or on library shelves. The religious establishment has all but succeeded in obliterating the memory of Szondi (only allowing his "test" to be known). But among those small bands who uphold the banner of truth, on all five continents, Szondi cannot, and indeed will not be forgotten. It is largely due to Szondi's work that there can be no excuse for an educated person to accept the conventional versions that make Cain out to have been a murderer.

I remember the first time I read Hesse's "autobiography" Demian, where he discusses the Mark of Cain as a mark of intelligence, of which the purely physical and brutish Abel is envious; I was struck by how Hesse's version rang true for unintelligible reasons. It was what first got me interested in mythology, which is what first taught me to appreciate how easily history is shaped and falsified and simply lost for all the known and unknowable reasons.

Yes, it is from Andre-Louis Moreau. I guess no one else is interested, maybe it was too long. I agree that the author is a little preachy and class driven, but as you seem to be aware, there are many stories involving Cain the Victim, and only one where Cain is the bad guy, and yet most of western society is blissfully unaware that a large part of their body of myths, are not only copies, but poorly thought and amateurly revised ones.

The ideas concerning where myth should take us, and the political agenda of his essay are not what I was trying to draw attention to. Rather, that there are thousands of tellings of the two Brothers myth, and it is pretty much just the Christian one where the smart one kills the strong one. In all the others the smart, brooding, far thinking brother is killed.

2. Ham and Canaan

http://www.israel-a-history-of.com/sons-of-noah.html

The three sons of Noah, according to the Bible, were to be responsible for the re-populating of the world after the flood. Though Noah had three sons, it would be Shem through whom the "promised seed of the woman" would be transmitted. Shem was to be the father of the Semitic line of descent, which included the Jews, as well as Syrians and Arameans, among others.


Ham and his Descendants
http://www.israel-a-history-of.com/sons ... 3E%3C/u%3E

It is interesting to note that immediately after Noah passes out naked, the Bible introduces Ham as the father of Ca'naan (v. 22).

For when Noah comes to, and discovers what Ham did, it is Ca'naan, the son of Ham, that Noah curses, not Ham!

Ham's heart of rebellion had been exposed. Not only was it rebellion against his father's authority, but ultimately it was rebellion against God and His authority. Consequently, Ham will become a servant of the other two sons of Noah.


Noah, Ham and Canaan
http://www.ukapologetics.net/canaan.html

'And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard. Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father's nakedness. So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him. Then he said: "Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants he shall be to his brethren." And he said: "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem, and may Canaan be his servant. May God enlarge Japheth, and may he dwell in the tents of Shem; and may Canaan be his servant."'

Genesis 9:20-27.

At first sight this does not seem such a serious incident and many have wondered why the punishment for a young man seeing his father in a naked condition was so serious, after all they were both men. Also, this Scripture seems especially odd since the punishment seems to have been passed directly on to Noah's grandson (rather than his son). We must note that the text of Genesis here is less clear than one might wish so we have to work with various clues, including from other sections of Scripture. Overall, Bible commentators feel that something else occurred which the text never specifically spells out.

So there might be much more to this text than immediately meets the eye!

Okay, let us consider this in more detail.

Much of the explanation may be found in the meaning of the Hebrew phrase, 'to look upon his/her nakedness.' Look up Leviticus 18:6-18 and 20:17. It is very clear that this phrase was used by the Hebrews to describe the sin of incest. Here Noah apparently carelessly left himself uncovered in his tent (v. 21), whereupon his son Ham saw his 'nakedness' [Heb. 'erwa' = 'his genitals'] (v. 22); and then evidently performed a sexual act, probably masturbation, upon his weakened father (however, since the curse was pronounced on Canaan rather than upon Ham, some believe that Ham employed his son to perform the act upon Noah - v. 24). So, almost certainly, and in a completely depraved manner, Noah was probably masturbated (there is another explanation which we will consider later). Presumably Noah was drunk and did not react, and in his weakened state, might even have disgracefully enjoyed the act. But when he became sober, Noah was both ashamed and furious at what had happened. The text strongly suggests that whereas Shem and Japheth were horrified at noting Noah's careless nakedness, Ham exploited the situation. So Ham 'saw the nakedness of his father,' and seems to have been wholly responsible (although, as already alluded to, some think that the actual sexual act was performed by Canaan). This caused Ham to be removed from receiving any blessing from Noah, and Canaan, his son, was pronounced to be the future father of servants. Putting it all together, it seems most likely that Canaan, Ham's son, was not involved in the act but the curse was placed upon him possibly because he was Ham's favourite son.

It is surely interesting that a state of drunkeness leads to another act of incest in Genesis. This was when Lot's daughters deliberately got their father drunk in order to have sex with him. It is recounted in Genesis 19:30-35. So this was paternal incest.

The message of the Bible is that the foul sin of incest can only produce evil results. Canaan became the father of the Canaanites who apparently inherited the sexual morals of their grandfather, with a liking for incest and other forms of sexual perversion. Moses warned the Israelites not to adopt the sexual behaviour and practises of the Canaanites and other tribes within the Promised Land in Leviticus 18:6-18 and Exodus 23:23-24.

The incest of Lot's daughters with their father led to the peoples of Edom, Moab and Ammon (Genesis 19:36-38) and these people too proved to be continual enemies of Israel!

In Genesis 9, we note the curse which Noah pronounced on his grandson for Ham's act of incest; Canaan's descendants would now have to serve Shem's descendants, which is what happened when the Jews, descended from Shem, inherited the Promised Land! Shem and Japheth receive blessings because they reacted with wisdom and concern when Ham apparently foolishly boasted. They entered the tent and covered their father's 'nakedness' (that is, their father and mother). Japheth's blessing is that he would be 'enlarged' - the descendants of Japheth are indeed very numerous and would not only include many 'western-types' but another branch of Japheth will be found among such races as the Chinese, Japanese and Indonesians; a very populous people!

Incidentally, it’s worth pointing something else out from Genesis 9:27. The verse says this:

'May God enlarge Japheth, and may he dwell in the tents of Shem...'

We need to remember that the original Hebrew carried no punctuation, and many feel that there should be a full-stop (period) after Japheth, rather than a comma, because the next part, 'And may He dwell in the tents of Shem' is actually a reference to God, and God 'dwelt in the tents of Shem' in the tented tabernacle in the wilderness!

Another Possible Explanation of Genesis 9:20-27:

As we have pointed out, the Genesis text is not as clear as it might be in this section of Scripture and some commentators have suggested a different explanation:

They suggest that it was Noah's wife who was the victim of the incestuous behaviour, not Noah at all. In other words, this would make the phrase 'the nakedness of Noah,' to be a reference to Noah's wife rather than to Noah himself, and 'to uncover Noah's nakedness' would be to have illicit sexual relations with his wife. If this is so, it might explain more. For example, some scholars now suggest that such incestuous acts were often all about inner-family power struggles and it was usually an ambitious son who attempted to sexually compromise his mother!

Scott Hahn says this,

'Ham was trying to usurp his father's authority by sleeping with his mother. Perhaps that's why he told his brothers what he'd done, rather than keeping it a secret. This reflects a pattern found elsewhere in the Old Testament, especially where sons resent fathers for showing favor to siblings. For example, Jacob's son Reuben sought to undermine his (Jacob's) favored half-brother Joseph by taking his father's concubine - for which he received a paternal curse (see Gen 29:32; 35:22; 49:3-4). Likewise, Absalom resented the plans of his father, King David, to give the throne to one of his younger half-brothers, Solomon. In response, Absalom drove King David out of Jerusalem and then slept with his father's concubines - right in public - to signify his seizure of royal power...'
(Scott Hahn, A Father Who Keeps His Promises, p 87-88, Charis Servant Publications, Ann Arbor, 1998).

So there may well have been a bid for leadership over his siblings by Ham in his sexual conquest of his own mother (if indeed, it was Noah's wife who was compromised rather than Noah himself) - almost certainly, Ham wanted to be recognised as the leader among Noah's sons! Centuries later his male descendants would often seek the sexual conquest of their mothers as a means of attaining fuller priveleges within their families. But in Ham's case, God caused his evil behaviour to backfire, and the greater blessings and honour went to Japheth and, especially, to Shem, from whom the tribes of Israel would spring!

So it should not be entirely surprising that God gave the sons of Shem (Abraham and the Israelites) the right to have authority over the Canaanites.


The Castration of Ham
http://www.askelm.com/secrets/sec057.htm

Noah became drunk with wine (Genesis 9:21) and was naked in his tent. Ham "saw the nakedness of his father" and told Shem and Japheth (verse 22). They were horrified and covered their father with garments without observing him. What was it that Ham did to his father?

It certainly wasn’t simple observation of Noah’s nakedness that was the problem because Abraham and later Joseph allowed the testifying of oaths on their private parts, and Joseph did so with his own father (Genesis 47:29). But "Noah awoke from his wine and KNEW what his younger son had done to him" (Verse 24). Something drastic must have happened to Noah.

Note this important point. The curse that Noah placed upon Ham (who had been the perpetrator of the deed) was not against Ham himself. His curse was delivered to Ham’s descendants—specifically upon Ham’s fourth son named Canaan (verse 25). This may be the clue to what Ham did to Noah. It appears that Ham emasculated his father. Ham must have wanted to protect his own inheritance and that the portion of the world destined for his descendants would not be restricted. By preventing his father from having more children, he could then obtain a full third of the world as the inheritance for himself and his descendants.

So, Ham must have prevented Noah from having a fourth son (or any more sons). When Noah saw what Ham had done to him, he responded by cursing Ham’s fourth son, Canaan (verses 25-27). The early Jewish commentator Rashi paraphrased Noah’s rebuke of Ham: "You have brought it about that I cannot bear a fourth son to serve me: cursed, therefore, be your fourth son to serve under the descendants of these elder ones upon whom the duty of serving me will devolve from now on" (Comment on Genesis 9:25). Ham must have prevented Noah from having more children.


What's up with the biblical story of drunken Noah?
http://www.straightdope.com/columns/rea ... oah-part-1

Genesis 9:20-25 seems to be one of the strangest stories in the Bible. Noah lands the ark, plants a vineyard, gets drunk off its wine, lays around naked in his tent and is seen by his son Ham who reports it to his two brothers. Noah sobers up knowing what Ham did and curses his grandson Canaan who apparently was not even there. What is even stranger is when I started researching this mystery I discovered the story was once used to support slavery. Further there are theories floating around concerning castration and incest. What is the real story? Is there a deeper meaning to this than Noah having a case of misdirected anger while hung over? Or are we only hearing the watered-down version in our modern day Bible?

Ham sodomized or castrated Noah. One infers this from the fact that Noah had no children after the Flood. (On the other hand, he was over 500 years old) This was a common interpretation by both Jewish rabbinic scholars and early Christian fathers. One conjecture is that Ham used some magic spell to render Noah impotent. Modern scholars view these interpretations as unlikely. Among other things, the penalty for sodomy would have been death by stoning, not a curse on the perpetrator's child.

Regardless of what Ham's sin was, why does Noah curse Canaan? Why not curse Ham? The text doesn't say, so commentators are free to interpret. Again, it's likely there was an oral tradition not included in the written story.

The most reasonable explanation: This is not about Canaan the individual, but about his (presumed) descendents many generations later. The Israelites viewed the Canaanites as an evil, corrupt people who engage in sexually licentious acts (see Leviticus 18:1ff where "uncovering [sexual] nakedness" is associated with the Canaanites). Modern scholars know that the Canaanite pantheon is among the most sexually violent of pagan myths. So Ham is identified with his son (and descendents) Canaan, destined to be subjugated by the Israelite monarchy in the tenth century BC. Regardless of when the story was written down (1250 BC by Moses or 1000 BC by the editor "J"), it most likely refers to that period, literal enslavement of the nation Canaan by the Israelites.


Family Sexual Secrets in Genesis
http://epistle.us/hbarticles/secrets.html

Holding that Canaan "did more" to Noah answers very easily, simply, and naturally most of the questions that have plagued interpreters of this passage – except for one: what did Canaan do (or mostly likely do) to his grandfather? It should be noted that there are three words for "naked" used in the OT: arom (Strong #6174), erom (#5903), and erwa (#6172) – the third one (found in this passage) "associated with sexuality"7 and referring especially to the genitals.8 It may be noted that the phrase "uncover nakedness [gala erwa]" is often used in the OT as a sexual euphemism indicating illicit sex or rape. This expression for sexual union is used throughout the incest prohibitions in Lev 18:1-18, 20:17-21,9 where, for example, we read: "If a man takes his sister, a daughter of his father or a daughter of his mother, and sees her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness, it is a disgrace, and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people; he has uncovered his sister's nakedness, he shall be subject to punishment." (20:17, NRSV)

Notice the parallelism here between "seeing nakedness" and "uncovering nakedness," both inferring "having sex with." Because of a different context, "seeing" and "uncovered" in the Noah story do not prove that Ham had sex with Noah – but they do suggest some possible link between "nakedness" (erwa = genitals) and looking and sex in this story. Wold raises this interesting question also: how could Ham have known that his father was naked when he first entered the tent? Perhaps he only intended to speak to Noah or, if he knew his father had drunk a lot, to see if he needed assistance. No precedents can be found in ancient Near Eastern or Egyptian records showing that for a son simply to see his father naked was such a horrible thing or for placing a curse on someone other than the wrongdoer.10 In the Bible, we do have the incident where Lot's daughters get their father drunk (Gen 19:30-37), on two consecutive nights, so they can expose and manipulate his genitals to impregnate themselves (to get an heir); and no condemnation is passed on this indignity, in Genesis or elsewhere in the OT. Their motive, no doubt considered praiseworthy in ancient times, outweighed the insult done to their father. Further, in the Noah story, Wold holds that the verb asa ("to do, make") in v. 24 "implies physical rather than verbal action" and "is best understood in this concrete way."11

So what did Canaan do to Noah? Jewish rabbis have long pondered this. The Babylonian Talmud, in the tractate (section) Sanhedrin 70a (ca. 600 A.D.), records a debate between two 3rd-century rabbis – Rabbi Rab, who claimed that Noah was castrated to keep him from having a fourth son, and Rabbi Samuel, who claimed that Noah was raped, seeing a connection with seeing and raping in the Shechem / Dinah story (Gen 34:2).12 Castration? – Of course, any additional son(s) that Noah had would diminish the inheritance and influence of his first three sons and their families; this concern over inheritance was surely the primary motive in Onan's sexual misconduct (Gen 38:1-10).

Graves and Patai note13 that some ancient Jewish rabbis held that, at the height of his drunkenness, Noah uncovered himself, whereupon Canaan, Ham's little son, entered the tent, mischievously looped a stout cord about his grandfather's genitals, drew it tight; and so unmanned him (so he could beget no more). When Ham entered the tent and saw what had happened, he reported it to Shem and Japheth, smiling as if it was a joke – but he received back their curses.14 Ham could hardly be blamed for simply seeing his father's nakedness, and Noah would never had laid such a grave curse upon Ham's son if he was innocent.15 If this view of the offense is true, it would not, however, have been actual castration of the testicles, which would have been very painful and even life-threatening without some medical attention at hand. Also, the theory of a plan hatched to prevent Noah from begetting any more children is weakened by the fact that Noah was over 600 years old when the drunken episode occurred (Gen 9:28-29) and apparently had a horde of grandchildren running around (10:2,6,22); he probably had little interest in siring more children himself.

Sexual abuse? – Since "nakedness" here points to the sexual parts, other writers have held that some grave sexual act was done to or with Noah. H. Winckler believed that it was pederasty, sex with the young Canaan. F.W. Basset held that Ham had sex with his mother, but this seems far-fetched.16 J. Edgar Brun suggested that Ham sodomized his father (like Osiris tried to do with Horus, in the Egyptian myth) so he could claim dominance over him and the right to rule the world. Whether Ham or Canaan, sodomizing the old man, using Noah "as a woman," would clearly dishonor the "dignity of the male" and threaten the authority of the head of the family.17 One can hardly imagine that it was lust that "attracted" Canaan to his old grandpa; more likely, his action stemmed from a profound disrespect, rebellious nature, and perhaps perverse curiosity.

Increasingly, recent writers, including Anthony Phillips (1980), Thomas Schmidt (1995), Martti Nissinen (1998), Donald Wold (1998), and Robert Gagnon (2001), have viewed the main misdeed here as homosexual, incestuous rape.18 In the end, what Canaan did exactly to Noah we shall never know for sure – although "Canaan has done something" (Herman Gunkel),19 something probably repressed because it was "even more repulsive than mere looking" (Gerhard Von Rad),20 and all the clues most likely suggest that Noah was sexually assaulted (Martti Nissinen).21

In any case, this story would serve to as an etiological tale to point to the morally corrupt Canaanites, who would become known for their sexual sins, most notably the gang-raping horror at Sodom (Gen 19) and their incestuous practices, cult prostitutes and idolatrous worship (Lev 18, Deut 23:17-18). Later, the descendents of Shem (the Israelites) and of Japheth (the Philistines [E.A. Speiser], the Hittites [Bruce Vawter], or perhaps simply those nations who will share in the "tents" and blessings of Israel [Thomas Brodie]22) would subdue the Canaanites (Israel's enemies) as "slaves" (Gen 9:26-27). So, the first (probable) reference to homosexuality in the Bible sets the tone for most later references, which are condemned for their connection to violence or idolatry. Other (milder and loving) forms are not considered, that is, until we come to the Jonathan and David story.

If the drunken Noah story alludes to a homoerotic act, another story in Genesis that has long been connected to homosexuality, upon closer inspection clearly does not. In the Onan story (Gen 38:1-10), Er, Judah's eldest son, dies without giving his wife (Tamar) an heir; and so the patriarch instructs Onan, his second-born, to "Go in to your brother's wife and perform the duty of a brother-in-law to her; raise up offspring for your brother." (v. 8, NRSV) This practice, later codified in the Law of Moses (Deut 25:5-10), would become known as the "levirate" custom or law (from the Latin levir = "brother-in-law").

However, Onan, knowing that any such heir would cut into his inheritance, refuses to fulfill his sacred duty and honor his father's word. Although he lies with Tamar repeatedly, after his foreplay and games, instead of impregnating her, "he spilled his semen on the ground whenever he went in…" (v. 9, NRSV). Vawter observes that it was Onan's refusal to fulfill the sacred duty of a "redeemer," his selfishness and greed, his lack of love and loyalty to his brother and family, along with his hypocrisy and abuse of Tamar, that offended Yahweh and so brought about Onan's death (v. 10).23 If one looks up "onanism" today in a modern dictionary, one finds the meaning of either "masturbation" or "interrupted coitus," neither of which accurately describes Onan's sin.

However, it must remembered that masturbation for many centuries was compared to abortion, since it was believed that the father's sperm contained the whole essence of life. Only in the 18th century did scientists come to recognize that a child owed something to both parents.24 Furthermore, masturbation and sodomy were linked as related "perversions," the former leading to the latter;25 and so the Onan story was used to condemn homoerotic acts. Of course, the Onan story has nothing to do with homosexuality. It is important to note here, however, how a biased, erroneous, and completely off-base interpretation of Scripture (as we have seen here) can persist in tradition, even down to present-day in some parts of the Christian Church. Also, the Onan story is instructive to see how the ancient Hebrews spoke and wrote about sex. The literal Hebrew in 38:9 reads "he wasted [it] to the ground"26 – which has been filled out in the NRSV. Even though there was a Hebrew word for "semen" (zera = "seed"), it has been omitted in this intimate context. While Hebrew sex talk can (and frequently does) touch on very intimate topics, it should also be noted that it often does so in a manner that is elusive, elliptical, and euphemistic in language. Not only coded terms but contextual clues become critical considerations in interpreting such passages.

The Stolen Blessing
http://www.sljinstitute.net/sermons/old ... sis43.html

Now it came about, when Isaac was old and his eyes were too dim to see, that he called his older son Esau and said to him, ‘My son.’ And he said to him, ‘Here I am.’ And Isaac said: ‘Behold now, I am old and I do not know the day of my death. Now then please take your gear, your quiver and your bow and go out to the field and hunt game for me; and prepare a savory dish for me such as I love, and bring it to me that I may eat, so that my soul may bless you before I die.’ And Rebekah was listening while Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game to bring home, Rebekah said to her son Jacob, ‘Behold I heard your father speak to your brother Esau, saying, ‘Bring me some game and prepare a savory dish for me that I may eat and bless you in the presence of the Lord before my death.’

Now therefore, my son, listen to me as I command you. Go now to the flock and bring me two choice kids from there that I may prepare them as a savory dish for you father, such as he loves. Then you shall bring it to your father that he may eat so that he may bless you before his death.’


JACOB WRESTLES WITH GOD
http://www.washingtonubf.org/BibleMater ... SG14a.html

Jacob was a man of struggle. His struggle began in the womb; he was born clutching his twin brother's heel. He was not satisfied with the number 2 position. He wanted to be number 1. He waited for an opportunity. Then one day, when Esau was hungry, Jacob offered him a bowl of bean soup in exchange for his birthright. Esau's philosophy was, "You can't eat a birthright!" A little later, Jacob deceived his brother and his blind father and received the blessing of the first born. It was a costly victory. Esau was angry and vowed to kill him, so he had to leave home.

He fled for his life to Paddan Aram, his mother's home. As he set out, he met God and God turned his escape into a pilgrimage. In Paddan Aram, he struggled with his uncle Laban for 20 years. First, he struggled for the sake of a woman. It took him 14 years, but he worked and waited and won. He married Rachel. In the course of his struggle, God blessed him with not only Rachel, but with 4 wives and 11 sons. Second, he struggled for wealth. He worked hard and used all his skill, but still he would have failed. But God protected and blessed him and he won. Again, victory was costly. He had to leave Paddan Aram. He fled, but his father-in-law caught him. But God was with him and Laban let him go peacefully.

So Jacob left behind him his angry father-in-law and former employer and continued his pilgrimage back to Canaan and his father's house. God was working in these events to train Jacob and to bring him back to the land God had given his forefathers.


JACOB: THE GREAT DECEIVER
http://www.pvbible.com/sermons/03_07_20.htm

A good friend of mine tells the story of a conversation that took place in his ordination council. Near the conclusion of the council a godly old gentleman spoke up. He commented, "Young man quite frankly you frighten me. What scares me about you is that you are just talented enough that you could pull this off without God!"

When faced with a challenging opportunity, we take matters into our hands. We are prone to use whatever means are at our disposal to work things out for ourselves. Under pressure, we may even flirt with unscrupulous or deceptive practices to accomplish our goals.

That's the kind of person Jacob was. He was clever and crafty. Thanks to that "R" Chromosome, which he inherited from Rebekah, Jacob could manipulate anyone, get anything he wanted. He cleverly outwitted his brother--twice. He eventually conquered Laban, getting rich at his expense. Genesis 31:1 tells us, "Laban's sons began to say "Jacob has taken everything our father owned and has gained all this wealth from what belonged to our father."

Jacob is repeatedly mentioned in Scripture as one of the great men of faith, whom we ought to imitate. He is identified with some great traits that make him stand out in Scripture:

Why are all these positive things said about someone who is known as "the schemer"? None of this happened to Jacob because he was "the good child" in the family. If one of the sons should appropriately be referred to as a respectful, submissive, obedient son, it probably would have been Esau, not Jacob!

In spite of his scheming, Jacob is listed among the heroes of the faith in Hebrews 11. Like his father and grandfather before him, Jacob trusted the God of his fathers.

Even Jacob's name points to his character. Originally he was named because he had grabbed hold of Esau's heel at birth. While the name describes the heel as a part of the human body, it came to be used figuratively for someone who "attacked the heel" or who "overreached" his appropriate sphere of authority. That thought was then applied to anyone who schemed to get their own way or who deceived others for their own benefit. Thus Jacob's name labels him as "the deceiver" or "the schemer."

This raises an ethical problem: Is Yahweh the God of a scheming, deceiving cheat? God chooses Jacob in spite of his character; but He isn't content to leave him the way He finds him! God transforms Jacob from a "deceiver" to "one who overcomes" with God. Jacob's scheming character is revealed in the biblical descriptions of his relationship with Esau.

Even in the family of Isaac, the promised son, there is conflict. The most noteworthy aspect of Isaac's life as depicted in Genesis is the rivalry between his sons! Esau is introduced as a "man's man." He reveals normal humanistic attitudes. He proceeds through life without seeking to follow God. Jacob, on the other hand, seeks to follow God's will; but he attempts to do that through deceptive means.


Genesis 32: What Did Jacob Wrestle With?
http://ironwolf.dangerousgames.com/foru ... opic=283.0

So we all know the story about Jacob wrestling until morning, getting his name changed, and that was the key concept behind the British-Israelism we believed in, in the church. Gen. 32:28 is the verse that was most often proof-texted in this context.

However, going back and rereading Genesis chapter 32 in both the Skeptics Annotated Bible, and a translated English version of the Torah, I have found that the story is not exactly as I remember it.

The SAB, taken from the KJV, has Jacob wrestling with a man who won't give Jacob his name. (Gen. 32:24) By the time we reach verse 31 however, the "man" has become "God" who Jacob wrestled with face-to-face (and thus the name of the area became Peniel).

I remember in the church, the "man" Jacob wrestled with was always portrayed as an angel. No, not the shiny-happy-fluffy harps-and-feathers kind of angels the evangelicals like to parade around. Our angels were serious business. Think the eyes on the wheels within wheels from Elijah. Or the creatures Ezekiel hallucinated while he was dying of hunger in Babylon. Or the angels of the trumpets from that detestable book of Rev. (It would have been far better for crowd control, and would have cut way down on the dual prophecy bandwagons, if Constantine and the council had canonized the Apocalypse of Peter instead, in my opinion.)

Anyway, I decided to compare the KJV and the Judaic text. Now, the KJV just has it that the man becomes god in Jacob's eyes. The Torah has a different perspective:

In both texts, the fact that "day was breaking" is significant, and the god entreats to be released because the day is breaking. Why is this important?

Jacob represented the patriarch of the monotheistic Judaic religion. The god he wrestled with needed to be released because day was breaking. Interpretations of the text through the ages have suggested Jacob wrestled with an angel, a demon, a man, or "god".


Jacob at the Jabbok, Israel at Peniel
http://faculty.gordon.edu/hu/bi/Ted_Hil ... l_BSac.pdf

Why is it that many people of God attempt to gain the blessing of God by their own efforts? Faced with a great opportunity or a challenging task, believers are prone to take matters into their own hands and use whatever means are at their disposal. In it all there may even be a flirtation with unscrupulous and deceptive practices -- especially when things become desperate.

Jacob was much like this. All his life he managed very well. He cleverly outwitted his stupid brother--twice, by securing the birthright and by securing the blessing. And he eventually bested Laban and came away a wealthy man--surely another sign of divine bessing. Only occasionally did he realize it was God who worked through it all; but finally this truth was pressed on him most graphically in the night struggle at the ford Jabbok.

By the River Jabbok Jacob wrestled with an unidentified man till dawn and prevailed over him, and though Jacob sustained a crippling blow, he held on to receive a blessing once he perceived that his assailant was supernatural (Gen. 32:22-32). That blessing was signified by God's renaming the patriarch "Israel," to which Jacob responded by naming the place "Peniel." But because he limped away from the event, the "sons of Israel" observed a dietary restriction.

Gunkel, comparing this story with ancient myths, observes that all the features--the attack in the night by the deity, the mystery involved, the location by the river, the hand-to-hand combat--establish the high antiquity of the story.1

It is clear that the unusual elements fit well with the more ancient accounts about God's dealings with men. To be sure, something unusual has been recorded, and the reader is struck immediately with many questions, some of which probably cannot be answered to any satisfaction. Who was the mysterious assailant? Why was he fighting Jacob and why was he unable to defeat the patriarch? Why did he appear afraid of being overtaken by the dawn? Why did he strike Jacob's thigh? Why was the dietary taboo not included in the Mosaic Law? What is the meaning of the name "Israel"? What is the significance of this tradition?

Jewish literature, however, recognizes that an actual fight is at the heart of the story. R. Hanina said it was a real struggle but with the prince or angel of Esau.10 Rashi followed this explanation, and the Zohar (170a) named the angel Samael, the chieftain of Esau.

The passage has proved problematic for critical analysis as well. Schmidt explains, "The usual criteria fail. Yahweh does not occur at all, not even on the lips of the renamed hero. Elohim is found everywhere, but in a way that would not be impossible even to a writer usually employing the name Yahweh. The words and phrases generally depended on by the analysis are not decisive."11

Because of such tensions, and because Yahweh is not named in the narrative, modern critical scholars have attempted to uncover an ancient mythical story about gods fighting with heroes, a story that could have been adapted for the Jacob narratives.

Fraser, Bennett, Gunkel, and Kittel thought that the old story included a river god whose enemy was the sun god which diminished the river with its rays (especially in summer). In other words the Hebrew tradition was "pure fiction" (Schmidt) based on an old myth about a river god named Jabbok who attempted to hinder anyone from crossing. Peniel was his shrine.13

The myth was also identified with the deity El, the God of the land of Canaan. McKenzie suggests that the narrative followed an old Canaanite myth in which the "man" was at one time identified.

When Jacob became attached to the story, he argues, the Canaanite deity so named was deliberately obscured being replaced by a mysterious being who may or may not be taken as Yahweh. This, McKenzie suggests, was left vague because there was a hesitancy to attribute such deeds to Yahweh. Later the role was transferred to intermediate beings, such as the angel of Esau.

The passage cannot be dismissed merely as a bit of adopted or adapted folklore--a contest with a nocturnal demon, river spirit, or regional numen who opposes the river's crossing - to which "secondary" matters of cultic interest have been added, but is rather to be understood as bearing a distinct and distinctive meaning for the people who claim descent from their eponymous ancestor. Where, when, and how Jacob became Israel cannot have been matters of indifference to the Israelite author or to his audience. This ancient tradition about Jacob's unusual experience was recorded for Israel because the events of the patriarch's life were understood to anticipate or foreshadow events in Israel's history--receiving the blessing of the land in this case.


Wrestling with God
http://www.scribd.com/doc/685948/Wrestling-With-God

The Genesis story of Jacob wrestling at Peniel is shrouded in mystery. Who is this “man” that attacks Jacob and wrestles with him throughout the night? How did he cause this injury to Jacob? Why does he rename Jacob? There are many theories, but none are certain. The story, recorded in Genesis 32:22-32, is a culminating point in the life of Jacob, a central character in the book of Genesis and in the history of Israel. It is the moment of new beginnings for Jacob, a moment of transition and transformation. In this encounter, Jacob is given a new name, a blessing, and a limp. It is a story of struggle, identity, and revelation of the divine.

Although Jacob doesn’t actually die until chapter 49 of Genesis, this is the section that focuses on him. The story at Peniel marks a turning point in the story of his life, and also serves as a counterpart to Jacob’s dream at Bethel—God’s first appearance to him.

What is the meaning of this event? Many suggest that it was an answer to Jacob’s prayer to God earlier in the chapter asking for protection from his brother Esau. It seemed like God was preparing Jacob, humbling him in order that he might reconcile with his brother.

But there is still much debate as to the identity of the man. Many people have trouble imagining Yahweh wrestling with a mortal man, let alone not being able to defeat him. Some interpretations of who the man is:

Just a bad dream – an idea propagated during the Enlightenment, a time of rationalization and reasoned thinking.

A river spirit – because this event has many similarities to ancient folklore, this interpretation was popular for a while.

An enemy – this interpretation assumes that God “wrestled with” Jacob by being on his side, rather than his adversary.

An angel – this is largely based on the text from Hosea 12:4, which recounts this event as Jacob wrestling with an angel. But in those times, “angel” could often be used interchangeably with “God,” so this is uncertain.

Esau – the two brothers wrestled in the womb, and this event happens in the context of Jacob going to meet Esau. And also the reference to seeing Esau “like seeing the face of God” supports this.

The focal point of this story is identity. Jacob is humbled and wounded before a being he knows to be greater than him, but still clings on. It is at that point that God changes his name. He gives Jacob a new identity to live with, a name of honor, and one that expresses a new relationship with Yahweh.

There is an ambiguity in Jacob’s new name. Literally it probably means “God strives,” indicating that it is God that initiates and engages in the struggle. But the meaning given is “the one who strives with God,” indicating that Jacob responds in kind.


Jacob’s Wrestling
http://www.stolenspirit.com/index.php?o ... Itemid=168

It should be clear now that Jacob was engaged here in a battle with a demon. It is certainly not only in the history of the patriarch that a spirit appears in the form of a man. I myself at one time delivered a four year old boy, of a power which he pointed out with the words: 'That one there wants to harm me.' I drove this spirit out in the name of Jesus and the child said with a happy face: 'Now he is gone.' The following night I saw this power very clearly in the form of a dark figure, come towards me. He even seized me around the throat. I experienced this physically, and my wife and I together, while praying in tongues, drove this demon away.


Samael
http://www.radlyrics.com/s/samael/bio.php

Samael (Hebrew: סמאל‎) (also Sammael) is an important archangel in Talmudic and post-Talmudic lore, a figure who is accuser, seducer and destroyer, and has been regarded as both good and evil. It is said that he was the guardian angel of Esau and a patron of the Roman Empire.

Also called Sammael and Samil, he is considered in legend both a member of the heavenly host (with often grim and destructive duties) and a fallen angel, equatable with Satan and the chief of the evil spirits. One of Samael's greatest roles in Jewish lore is that of the angel of death. In this capacity he is a fallen angel but nevertheless remains one of the Lord's servants. As a good angel, Samael supposedly resides in the seventh heaven, although he is declared to be the chief angel of the fifth heaven.

In Jewish lore, Samael is said to be the angel of death, the chief ruler of the Fifth Heaven and one of the seven regents of the world served by two million angels; he resides in the Seventh Heaven[citation needed]. Yalkut I, 110 of the Talmud speaks of Samael as Esau's guardian angel. In Sotah 10b, Samael is Esau's guardian angel, and in the Sayings of Rabbi Eliezer, he is charged with being the one who tempted Eve, then seduced and impregnated her with Cain. Though some sources identify Gadreel as the angel that seduced Eve, other Hebrew scholars say that it was Samael who tempted Eve in the guise of the Serpent. Samael is also sometimes identified as being the angelic antagonist who wrestled with Jacob, and also the angel who held back the arm of Abraham as he was about to sacrifice his son.

Samael -- the Real Hero of Genesis?

Samael is also sometimes identified as being the angelic antagonist who wrestled with Jacob, and also the angel who held back the arm of Abraham as he was about to sacrifice his son.
According to "The Ascension of Moses" (Chapter IV - Aggadah - The Legend of The Jews - By Louis Ginzberg) Samael is also mentioned as being in 7th Heaven:

In The Holy Kabbalah (Arthur Edward Waite, 255), Samael is described as the "severity of God", and is listed as fifth of the archangels of the world of Briah. Samael is said to have taken Lilith as his bride after she left Adam. According to Zoharistic cabala, Samael was also mated with Eisheth Zenunim, Na'amah, and Agrat Bat Mahlat — all angels of sacred prostitution.

Samael is sometimes confused in some books with Camael, an archangel of God, whose name means "He who sees God".

In the Apocryphon of John, found in the Nag Hammadi library, Samael is the third name of the demiurge, whose other names are Yaldabaoth and Saklas. In this context, Samael means "the blind god", the theme of blindness running throughout gnostic works. His appearance is that of a lion-faced serpent. In “On the Origin of the World” in the Nag Hammadi library texts, he is also referred to as Ariael.

To anthroposophists, Samael is known as one of the seven archangels: Saint Gregory gives the seven archangels as Anael, Gabriel , Michael, Oriphiel, Raphael, Samael and Zachariel. They are all imagined to have a special assignment to act as a global Zeitgeist ('time spirit'), each for periods of about 380 years. Since 1879, anthroposophists posit, Michael has been the leading time spirit. Four important archangels are also supposed to display periodic spiritual activity over the seasons: Raphael during the spring, Uriel during the summer, Michael during the autumn, and Gabriel during the winter. In anthroposophy, archangels may be good or evil; in particular, some of their rank are collaborators of Ahriman whose purpose (anthroposophists believe) is to alienate humanity from the spiritual world and promote materialism and heartless technical control.
Samael and Lilith the Nazarite Watchers

So Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, "What is your name? We should like to honor you when your words come true." 18 The angel said to him, "You must not ask for my name; it is unknowable!" Judges 13:17

For twenty years I have been searching for the name of the angel that appears to the Parents of Samson the Nazarite for life. I believe this angel was Samael who rules the Fifth Heaven and the Gregori, the Watchers. a.k.a. the Nephelim. This is the same angel that appeared to Zachariah the father of John the Baptist who was also a Nazarite for life. Because Jesus converses with Samael in the wilderness, then I conclude Jesus was a Nazarite for life, and Samael is the name of the angel that appeared to his mother, Mary.

An annunciation takes place and Samael returns - ascends to the Fifth Heaven. Did Nazarites for life also ascend to the Fifth Heaven at the end of their life? John was considered the second coming of Elijah, who ascended to heaven in flames.

“As the flames leaped up from the altar toward the sky, the angel of the Lord ascended in the flames of the altar, while Manoah and his wife looked on; and they flung themselves on their faces to the ground. 21 The angel of the Lord never appeared again to Manoah and his wife. Manoah then realized that it had been an angel of the Lord. 22 And Manoah said to his wife, "We shall surely die, for we have seen a divine being."

I suspect this text has been altered. In the original Samson's mother is praying before a special altar erected by barren women so that they might conceive a child. This altar may have been made to invoke the mercy of Lilith, who was the consort of Samael. Lilith was the first wife of Adam, but left him because she considered herself the equal of Adam. She rebelled, and could not be talked into returning to Eden, the Earthly Paradise.

Said the Holy One to Adam, 'If she agrees to come back, what is made is good. If not, she must permit one hundred of her children to die every day.' The angels left God and pursued Lilith, whom they overtook in the midst of the sea, in the mighty waters wherein the Egyptians were destined to drown. They told her God's word, but she did not wish to return. The angels said, 'We shall drown you in the sea.'' ‘Leave me!' she said. 'I was created only to cause sickness to infants. If the infant is male, I have dominion over him for eight days after his birth, and if female, for twenty days.'

Is it possible barren women begged Lilith to spare one of her children and give it to them? John means "the gift of God". John is circumcised and named on the eighth day, when he is no longer ruled by Lilith. However, does the holy spirit of the angel Samael remain with the Nazarites for Life, until the day they die?

At one time the Jews worshipped Lilith and Samael as the first Adam and Eve. They more then likely fell out of favor when Jewish women fell out of favor and were no longer seen as the equal of men, especially in regards to how one worshipped. Only men could build an altar, or approach one. The explanations of how human life is conceived were replaced by obeying an all powerful male God. But only men know how to obey and serve God, properly. Women became natural born rebels, fallen angels, whose sons must be taken from them when quite young and taught the Torah, or, at least be in the presence of men who spoke the words of God.

Women were prone to fall back on the ways of Lilith, and thus the good angel, Samael, was demonized, turned into the number one advisory of Jewish men. It is for this reason Samael's name is not told, but, this was not the case. Here is how the text should read:

As the flames leaped up from the altar toward the sky, the angel of the Lord descended in the flames of the altar, while Manoah and his wife looked on; and they flung themselves on their faces to the ground. "What is your name?"

"I am Samael." And Manoah said to his wife, "We shall surely die, for we have seen the divine Angel of Death"

The name Samson is Shim-shun, "like the sun". The Watchers, or, Sons of God glowed like the sun, thus, Monoah and his wife named their son after Samael the Watcher who knew martica arts and had divine strength. The Watchers were Judges, as were the Nazarites, who may have been a priesthood that came out of Babylon with Abraham who may have been an ally of the Kings of Babylon looking to expand into Canaanite land.

This priesthood may be associated with the Indian deity, Yama, that was brought from the Far East by the Tocharians, and giant race who learned astrology from the Chinese and weapon making techniques. This knowledge transformed the lives of simple shepherds who longed to return to more pastoral times. Surely the conservatives were keen on getting rid of the Nazarite Judges and Priesthood that admitted men and women as equals, which suggests they worshipped Samael as Lilith as equals, and in their pre-demonized state.

When you consider the demonizing made by evangelical Republicans, and their anti-knowledge and sex campaign in the last fifteen years, then you know how easily religious truth get altered. Samael had much to do with our sexual nature, as well as the transcendence of this nature into the divine. He is the go-between, the Messenger of our
Divine Sexual Unions. Did Jesus and Mary Magdalene present themselves as Samael and Lilith, restored?

Paul said he tortured followers of Jesus in order to get them to "denounce their Lord" I now wonder if this Lord was Samael, the Lord of the Fifth Heaven.

That knowledge would be original sin, Enoch being a Watcher, was in contempt of God. By teaching man the arts of Astrology, Math, and Writing, Enoch had disobeyed God, along with the other Watchers, or Lords of the Abyss (as they were known). There are also a great many texts, from a great many civilizations (from Chaldeans to Semurians, to Goths) that spoke of the Watchers as "men that glow as the Sun" or 'Suns of the Sun', the Sun being a symbol of God, the spirit plane, masculinity and heaven. They are also often spoken of as Giants.

When I had a psychic reading in 1987, the first thing that was said to me by one of the two Seers, was:

"You own your own creation." In dying I saw my own conception. I was unborn, unlinked from the chain of sexual conception and shown the purely divine. I now conclude the deity I beheld after death, was Samael, for he did not take me to the Seventh Heaven, but restored my life, so I could become a Nazarite reborn! The true hero of Genesis is Samael.

This true hero is none other than Samael who, as opposed to tempting Eve, offered her wisdom. Upon eating the fruit, Eve was given knowledge and logic. The symbolism mentioned portrays Samael as a giver of truth.

When I saw Samael with one foot in the sea and the other on the sand, I reached out with my wounded hand and cried;

"All I ever wanted was the truth." And he waved his hand over the surface of the ocean and it was turned to liquid gold. And I saw all the truths that ever appear on earth and in heaven.


Samael & Lilith
http://istina.rin.ru/eng/ufo/text/663.html

Judges 13:2-25
This translation was taken from the JPS Tanakh

2 There was a certain man from Zorah, of the stock of Dan, whose name was Manoah. His wife was barren and had borne no children. 3 An angel of the Lord appeared to the woman and said to her, "You are barren and have borne no children; but you shall conceive and bear a son. 4 Now be careful not to drink wine or other intoxicant, or to eat
anything unclean. 5 For you are going to conceive and bear a son; let no razor touch his head, for the boy is to be a Nazirite to God from the womb on. He shall be the first to deliver Israel from the Philistines."

6 The woman went and told her husband, "A man of God came to me; he looked like an angel of God, very frightening. I did not ask him where he was from, nor did he tell me his name. 7 He said to me, 'You are going to conceive and bear a son. Drink no wine or other intoxicant, and eat nothing unclean, for the boy is to be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death!'"8 Manoah pleaded with the Lord. "Oh, my Lord!" he said, "please let the man of God that You sent come to us again, and let him instruct us how to act with the child that is to be born."

9 God heeded Manoah's plea, and the angel of God came to the woman again. She was sitting in the field and her husband Manoah was not with her. 10 The woman ran in haste to tell her husband. She said to him, "The man who came to me before has just appeared to me." 11 Manoah promptly followed his wife. He came to the man and asked him: "Are you the man who spoke to my wife?" "Yes," he answered. 12 Then Manoah said, "May your words soon come true! What rules shall be observed for the boy?" 13 The angel of the Lord said to Manoah, "The woman must abstain from all the things against which I warned her. 14 She must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine, or drink wine or other intoxicant, or eat anything unclean. She must observe all that I commanded her."

15 Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, "Let us detain you and prepare a kid for you." 16 But the angel of the Lord said to Manoah, "If you detain me, I shall not eat your food; and if you present a burnt offering, offer it to the Lord."? For Manoah did not know that he was an angel of the Lord. 17 So Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, "What is your name? We should like to honor you when your words come true." 18 The angel said to him, "You must not ask for my name; it is unknowable!"

19 Manoah took the kid and the meal offering and offered them up on the rock to the Lord; and a marvelous thing happened while Manoah and his wife looked on. 20 As the flames leaped up from the altar toward the sky, the angel of the Lord ascended in the flames of the altar, while Manoah and his wife looked on; and they flung themselves on
their faces to the ground. 21 The angel of the Lord never appeared again to Manoah and his wife. Manoah then realized that it had been an angel of the Lord. 22 And Manoah said to his wife, "We shall surely die, for we have seen a divine being." 23 But his wife said to him, "Had the Lord meant to take our lives, He would not have accepted a burnt offering and meal offering from us, nor let us see all these things; and He would not have made such an announcement to us."

24 The woman bore a son, and she named him Samson. The boy grew up, and the Lord blessed him. 25 The spirit of the Lord first moved him in the encampment of Dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.

Samael & Lilith: Rabbi Isaac ben Jacob ha-Kohen wrote in the second half of the 13th century in Spain. His treatise on evil was entitled 'A Treatise on the Left Emanation'. This work introduces Samael and Lilith as husband and wife, a concept which was then incorporated into later Kabbalistic demonology. Rabbi Isaac states: 'Truly I shall give you a hint, that the reason for all the jealousies which exist between the princes mentioned above, and the [other, good] princes which belong to the seven classes, the classes of the holy angels which are called 'the guardians of the walls,' the reason which evokes hatred and jealousy between the heavenly powers and the powers of the supreme host, is one form which is destined for Samael, and it is Lilith, and it has the image of a feminine form, and Samael is in the form of Adam and Lilith in the form of Eve. Both of them were born in a spiritual birth as one, similar to the form of Adam and Eve, like two pairs of twins, one above and one below. Samael and the Eve the Elder, which is called the Northern one, they are emanated from below the Throne of Glory, and this was caused by the Sin.' - from Chap 6

There are texts concerned with the story of the Watchers that point to Enoch being an angel, fallen from heaven. The story of the Watchers tells of a group of angels, who were enticed by the women of man. Longing for union of the holy couple upon the plane of matter, Mother Earth, the angels descended from the heavens. They taught to man evolutionary knowledge and the workings of all things. This was, in many cases, believed to be the original sin.

There are stories that use iconography and symbolism to display a different portrait of the story of Eve, Samael (the snake living in the Tree of Knowledge) and the forbidden fruit. These stories, which in congregation with each other represent a doctrine of religion from pre-Sumerian times, hint at another character who, instead of God, takes the place of the Hero of Genesis. This true hero is none other than Samael who, as opposed to tempting Eve, offered her wisdom. Upon eating the fruit, Eve was given knowledge and logic. The symbolism mentioned portrays Samael as a giver of truth. In this recount, it was the devil who was right. God was wrong, telling them if they ate the fruit they would surely die, but in fact, they were blessed with the understanding of things. This links with texts describing knowledge as 'evil' and that God believed knowledge would draw man from him and corrupt him.

That knowledge would be original sin, Enoch being a Watcher, was in contempt of God. By teaching man the arts of Astrology, Math, and Writing, Enoch had disobeyed God, along with the other Watchers, or Lords of the Abyss (as they were known). There are also a great many texts, from a great many civilizations (from Chaldeans to Semurians, to Goths) that spoke of the Watchers as "men that glow as the Sun" or 'Suns of the Sun', the Sun being a symbol of God, the spirit plane, masculinity and heaven. They are also often spoken of as Giants.

What is most curious about recorded history of giants is that records found describing "giants bearing the sciences of heaven" (that being Astrology, Math and Writing, among others) have been found all over Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. There are many tales which, considered together, lead to the possibility that giants did once exist. It seems unlikely, but the number of nations and religions that have written of giants makes one wonder, as to why would so many people, people who have never met and whose religions and cultures are isolated from others, would all declare that giants existed. Enoch was also spoken of as a Giant, in doctrines of sun- and sea-gods, the sea being a symbol for heaven, as the sea was viewed as a transcendent plane between the two, with heaven (also known as the 'celestial sea') above, and the earth below.

There are also accounts written in a number of books, including the Gospel of Thomas (purportedly written by Christ's own twin brother, Thomas) that account to Enoch being the Son of Cain, Adams child. However, in pre-Judaic texts, the origin of Cain is different. Some tell that he was born of Adam and Lillith (Adam's first wife, once a consort of God), while others claim Cain was of the Union of Eve and Samael.

In ancient astronomy, before the telescope was invented, people referred to the Sun, Moon, and the five planets visible with the naked eye as the seven heavenly objects. Each had its own layer of heaven or sky assigned to it, and each was considered to be further and further away from Earth. Today we refer to the layers as the orbit of the object around the Sun.

It was believed by many cultures, and still is by some today, that when people die, their souls float into the sky, visiting each of the Seven Heavenly Objects as they travel to the outermost layer of heaven. When they reach that outermost layer, they are believed to actually meet God, who was/is supposed to exist just above the last layer of heaven, just above the orbit of the planet we currently call Saturn.

According to Jewish mysticism, Heaven is divided into seven realms. In order from lowest to highest, the seven Heavens are listed alongside the angels who govern them and any further information:

1. Shamayim: The first Heaven, governed by Archangel Gabriel, is the closest of heavenly realms to the Earth; it is also considered the abode of Adam and Eve.

2. Raquia: The second Heaven is dually controlled by Zachariel and Raphael. It was in this Heaven that Moses, during his visit to Paradise, encountered the angel Nuriel who stood "300 parasangs high, with a retinue of 50 myriads of angels all fashioned out of water and fire." Also, Raquia is considered the realm where the fallen angels are imprisoned and the planets fastened.

3. Shehaqim: The third Heaven, under the leadership of Anahel, serves as the home of the Garden of Eden and the Tree of Life; it is also the realm where manna, the holy food of angels, is produced. The Second Book of Enoch, meanwhile, states that both Paradise and Hell are accommodated in Shehaqim with Hell being located simply "on the northern side."

4. Machonon: The fourth Heaven is ruled by the Archangel Michael, and according to Talmud Hagiga 12, it contains the heavenly Jerusalem, the Temple, and the Altar.

5. Machon: The fifth Heaven is under the administration of Samael, an angel referred to as evil by some, but who is to others merely a dark servant of God.

6. Zebul: The sixth Heaven falls under the jurisdiction of Zachiel.

7. Araboth: The seventh Heaven, under the leadership of Cassiel, is the holiest of the seven Heavens provided the fact that it houses the Throne of Glory attended by the Seven Archangels and serves as the realm in which God dwells; underneath the throne itself lies the abode of all unborn human souls. It is also considered the home of the Seraphim, the Cherubim, and the Hayyoth.


Samael
http://osdir.com/ml/culture.templar.ros ... 00013.html

SAMAEL-Also called Sammael, Samil, and even Satan, an angel whose name has been interpreted as meaning "angel" (el) of "poison" (sam);

He is considered in legend both a member of the heavenly host (with often grim and destructive duties) and a fallen angel, equated with Satan and the chief of the evil spirits. One of Samael's greatest roles in Jewish lore is that of the angel of death. In this capacity he is a fallen angel but nevertheless remains one of the Lord's servants. As a good angel, Samael supposedly resides in the seventh heaven, although he is declared to be the chief angel of the fifth heaven.

Regarding the nature of Samael, in Hebrew, Samael means "the bitter poison or beverage of God." The teachings of Samael are poison for the Ego, but a healing balm for the Consciousness. The forces of Samael are the forces of Mars, which in their positive polarity is Strength and Love. He is very compassionate, a Buddha Maitreya, but
His Love is expressed as Strength (Aun) and Light (Weor). Samael is Aries, the God of War, but not the kind of barbaric wars we are all familiar with on our planet Earth, but a spiritual war, a war against degeneration, corruption and ignorance."

"Samael Aun Weor, The name "Samael" is very ancient and carries a very deep and extensive history. It is possible to understand the meaning of this name and its use throughout mythology and scripture if we first understand a little about Kabbalah and the Hebrew language. Without this knowledge, we fall into the ignorance of those who condemn Samael as a demon or negative force, while ignoring that this is the name of an angel: the suffix -el is Hebrew for God, thus all angels of the Hebrew pantheon are called Michael, Uriel, Raphael, etc.

One should also keep distinct the various parts of the Being, as St. Paul indicated: The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. - St. Paul, from 1 Corinthians 15:47 Samael Aun Weor explained this here: The Innermost of every human being is a child of a sidereal genie (Logos) and there are as many Fathers
(Innermosts) in heaven as there are human beings on earth. In each human reincarnation, every human being is born under a different star so that the ego is "rounded off," little by little. But there is a star that rules our Innermost, and that Star never changes: this is our Father Star. This Star is our Father who is in the heavens.

There have been "stellar moments" for mankind, in which the sidereal Father of a great genie (Monad) has been able to speak and express himself through him, in order to initiate new cycles of spiritual culture. I, Samael Aun Weor, am only the child (Monad) and the instrument of "Samael-Mars," and what I teach you is the Wisdom of my Stellar Father. Each one of us (as Monads) has his spiritual and astral inheritance from his Stellar Father who is in heaven. - The Zodiacal Course"

The Zohar explains that Samael was there when Eve was tempted, and it is because Samael is the fifth helper, the force of Geburah, Mars, that is directly related with the sexual energy. That is why Samael, Mars, controls the sign of Scorpio, which is directly related with the sexual organs. The strength of Samael is the one that gives the erection to the man. So obviously, Samael is the one that appears and gives the doctrine, and then you have to decide to go up or to go down.

To go up, you use the force of Samael, the sexual strength, in the positive way, as we explain in Gnosis. To go down is by fornicating. That is why it is written that when Jacob was lying down and putting his head on the rock of Yesod, that stone, he saw how the angels of God were going up and coming down, because that stone is the symbol of Yesod, the sexual force of Samael. When he awoke, he was fighting. He was fighting with an angel. The Zohar says that angel was Samael. That fight was not in one night or in one morning. That fight endures for many years, because this is precisely the struggle that every initiate has: to struggle with Samael, which is the strength.

Samael is the Archangel of strength, but the sexual strength; that is why the name of the master is Samael AUN WEOR. Aun is the Hebrew word for "strength" - not the strength of muscles, but the sexual strength. ... Arcanum Four, The Twenty-two Arcana of Tarot and Kabbalah "In the last heaven Moses saw two angels, each five hundred parasangs in height, forged out of chains of black fire and red fire, the angels Af, "Anger," and Hemah, "Wrath," whom God created at the beginning of the world, to execute His will. Moses was disquieted when he looked upon them, but Metatron embraced him, and said, "Moses, Moses, thou favorite of God, fear not, and be not terrified," and Moses became calm.

There was another angel in the seventh heaven, different in appearance from all the others, and of frightful mien. His height was so great, it would have taken five hundred years to cover a distance equal to it, and from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet he was studded with glaring eyes, at the sight of which the beholder fell prostrate in awe. "This one," said Metatron, addressing Moses, "is Samael, who takes the soul away from man." "Whither goes he now?" asked Moses, and Metatron replied, "To fetch the soul of Job the pious." Thereupon Moses prayed to God in these words, "O may it be Thy will, my God and the God of my fathers, not to let me fall into the hands of this angel."" The Legends of the Jews by Louis Ginzberg.

CAPRICORN: PAN, THE SEA BEAST
https://infamoustimes.wordpress.com/201 ... sea-beast/

“Capricornus…is a picture of the Sea Goat. There is no prototype of this strange creature, the front half of which is a goat and the rear half a fish! But that is precisely what Capricornus is! What does it mean? The goat is in a fallen position with one leg doubled under his body: the head is bent forward and he is in a dying situation. On the other hand, the tail of the fish is vigorous and living. We have hear a beautiful picture of what Christ accomplished by his death and that He brings forth out of His death the living body of the Church—referred to in Scripture as ‘fishes’.” – D. James Kennedy (902:56)

“In Capricorn, Aquarius…we see the Church Age. The head of the goat, the body of the fish—Jesus is the sacrificial goat and out of the head of the fish comes the body which is the Church, the symbol of the fish. And then, of course, there’s Aquarius pouring out the Holy Spirit. That’s the day of Pentecost.” – J.R. Church (1053)

“Sophocles also has Pan as the sea wanderer, roaming the seas, and the conch shell can replace the pipes in some tales… Is Pan the archetype of the sign of Capricorn, the Sea-Goat, half-Goat, half fish.” (The Great God Pan, 313)

D. James Kennedy’s irreverent portrayal of the Lord Jesus Christ as the various mythological beasts and four-footed creatures of the Zodiac ought to have caused a groundswell of outrage and protest in the Christian community. The reality is, however, that many professing Christians have accepted these blasphemous teachings as Biblical. In this zodiacal sign, Kennedy states that Capricorn, the Sea Goat, is a beautiful picture of Jesus Christ. To the contrary, the Sea Goat is a representation of Pan, the god of nature whose worship is first recorded in Arcadia around 6 B.C., which significantly predates the Tower of Babel, when Dr. Kennedy avers the Zodiac was corrupted from its pristine original form as God’s protevangelium to the world.

“A Greek god with the physique, not of a Greek god, but of a small man with a goatee beard and reed pipes, and the hind-quarters, horns and sexual habits of a goat…having been first worshiped in Arcadia, where he was certainly being worshiped as early as the 6th century BC. This fertile plateau lies in the South of modern Greece, and there lived the pastoral ancestors of the heroes who later built the Greek empire. Pan was born there, on Mount Lycaeum…” (1054)

Arcadia was the ancient home of the Sicambrian Franks, the ethnic group from which the Merovingians emerged:

“Capricorn is often depicted as the ‘sea goat’ from the myth of Pan, the horned woodland god of goats and shepherds. The bearded and ‘horny’ Pan was one of the satyrs, half-human and half-beast, known for their voracious sexual appetites (origin of the word ‘satyriasis’). According to one version of the myth, Pan, fleeing from the beast Typhon, jumped into a river just as he was transforming himself into a fish. The lower half of his body became fishlike, but his upper body above the water remained in the form of a goat.” (1007)

Christian rumors of the death of the Great God Pan are greatly exaggerated declared Blavatsky who predicted that Pan will rise again: “There is a well-known pious legend which has been current in the Christian world ever since the day of Tiberias, to the effect that the ‘great god Pan is dead’. But people are greatly mistaken in this; neither nature nor any of her Forces can ever die. A few of these may be left unused, and being forgotten lie dormant for long centuries. But no sooner are the proper conditions furnished than they awake to act again with tenfold power.” (316:246)

One famous British occultist, Aleister ‘The Beast’ Crowley, displayed the sea-goat on his personal seal and also wrote a hymn in adoration of the goat god, Pan. What did Crowley have in mind? Kenneth Grant, the Grand Master of the Ordo Templis Orientalis (OTO), the organization once directed by Crowley in Great Britain, indicates that Crowley’s seal conveyed the dark origins of the Merovingian race.

“…the Merovingian race was sired by a water beast known as the Quinotaur. This Quinotaur took the form of a sea-bull. Crowley’s personal seal was of a sea goat. Grant, writing of Crowley’s Seal of the Beast, says: ‘The beast is the sea-goat or amphibious monster identical with Cthulhu, the Quinotaure or Bull of the Deep.’ Grant writes as a footnote; ‘The waters under the earth; home of the ‘ancestors’ or subconscious atavisms of the race.’ Is this a reference to the race of the Grail?” (923)

Pan, the lusty god, was also called Pallas, whom Laurence Gardner identified in Bloodline of the Holy Grail as the progenitor of the Merovingian race of Grail Kings. As Robert Graves stated in The White Goddess, “The Lusty God–call him Hercules or Hermes or Pan or Pallas or Pales or Mamurius or Neptune or Priapus or whatever you please…” (406:357)

“Despite the carefully listed genealogies of his time, the heritage of Meroveus was strangely obscured in the monastic annals. Although the rightful son of Clodion, he was nonetheless said by the historian Priscus to have been sired by an arcane sea creature, the Bistea Neptunis… The Sicambrian Franks, from whose female line the Merovingians emerged were associated with Grecian Arcadia before migrating to the Rhineland. As we have seen, they called themselves the Newmage — ‘People of the New Covenant’, just as the Essenes of Qumran had once been known. It was the Arcadian legacy that was responsible for the mysterious sea beast — the Bistea Neptunis — as symbolically defined in the Merovingian ancestry. The relevant sea-lord was King Pallas, a god of old Arcadia… The immortal sea-lord was said to be ‘ever-incarnate in a dynasty of ancient kings’ whose symbol was a fish – as was the traditional symbol of Jesus.” (29:166,175)

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? – Rev. 13:1-4

Pagans viewed the creator god as coming forth from the cosmic sea to establish the earth. The Greek Pan/Pallas was also the god Saturn or Chronos worshpped by the ancient Romans, Egyptian and Palestinians as the “beast out of the sea”. In mythology, the planetary god, Saturn, emerged from the cosmic sea as the serpent who rescued the world following the chaos of Genesis 1. According to legend, Saturn founded the utopian kingdom of Atlantis and became the divine ancestor of all earthly patriarchs and kings. Another Golden Age is anticipated at which time the demonic gods of Atlantis will return to earth to initiate mankind into the ancient wisdom and transform the human race into gods. At this time, Saturn (Satan) – aka Chronos, Pan – will rise from the bottomless pit (Hell) to incarnate the false Christ/Messiah of the world religion in the occult’s false millennium. The following is a brief overview of the history of the beast out of the cosmic sea.

The Nephilim: Race of the Grail

According to Dagobert’s Revenge Magazine, which “is resolutely heralding the renaissance of the Arcadian Mystique,” the ‘Cult of the Goat’ began with the star system, Capricorn, which worshipped Enki, a prototype of Satan, who was, in occult lore, the consort of Eve. This being an impossibility according to Genesis 4:1, the Anunnaki were the fallen angels (Nephilim) that descended to earth two chapters later. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose…There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (Gen. 6:1,4)

These giants were the hybrid offspring of the demons who had mated with human women and they ruled the ancient pre-Flood civilization. Kenneth Grant calls them the Great Old Ones or Ancient Ones. “The ‘Grail Blood’ and the ‘bloodline of the Great Old Ones’ are the same thing. They are also the same as the sea-monsters such as Leviathan and Dagon, the ‘Lords of the Deep’ and gods of the ‘Underworld’ or Abyss recorded in the legends of every ancient culture.” (923) One of these sea monsters was worshipped by the Philistines as Dagon, who apparently survived the Flood, according to Tracy Twyman’s article, “Dead But Dreaming: The Great Old Ones of Lovecraftian Legend Reinterpreted as Sumerian/Atlantean Kings.”

“…Dagon or Oannes, a half-human, half-fish combination who was known as the ‘Lord of the Flood’…was said to rise out of the sea every day to teach his secret knowledge to those who followed him. He is mentioned in Samuel, Chapter 5, when the Philistines capture the Ark of the Covenant and place it in the Temple of Dagon. Two nights later, ‘Dagon was fallen upon its face to the ground before the Ark of the Lord; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.’ It is this character upon which Satan or Lucifer is based, but the physical description attributed to him applied to an entire race of ‘gods’, or as they were described in the Bible, Nephilim, or Fallen Angels, the ‘Great Old Ones’…” (923)

Twyman is the editor of Dagobert’s Revenge Magazine. The Ancient Ones, as Twyman calls them, took the form of dogs, dragons or goats, depending on the star system in the cosmic sea whence they came.

“The Ancient Ones, for their part, seem to be associated both with the Abyss, or underground sea, and with the constellations as well. This is not a contradiction if one takes into account the fact that ancient man considered the sky itself to be a cosmic ocean, and it was often called ‘The Abyss’ as well. There seem to be three star systems in particular that the Ancient Ones are associated with, which have given birth to what Abdul Alhazred describes as: ‘The Cult of the Dog, the Cult of the Dragon, and the Cult of the Goat’…corresponding to the stars Draconis (the Dragon), Sirius (the Dog-Star), and Capricorn, (the Goat), which is oddly based on Enki, the prototype of Satan, whom Abdul is calling an ‘Elder God.”” (923)

“As above, so below.” Kenneth Grant elucidates the dualistic concept of good and evil in terms of the Hermetic axiom: “the waters beneath the earth that mirror in their uncertain depths the heights of space above the earth wherein glow the stars, the unborn or un-fleshed souls of future states of consciousness, or simply life beyond earth. The mortal world spreads east and west and the land of les invisibles lies above and below it in the vertical dimensions of height and depths, north and south, Horus and Set.’ This ties in with the Book of Enoch and the Hosts above and the fallen, banished Nephilim below. This also reminds us of the twins or brother gods in Sumeria called Enki and Enlil. Enki, the infernal of the two, represents Set and Enlil represents Horus” (923)

The Nephilim from the star system Capricorn were giant sea monsters–half-man, half-fish with the horns of a goat–which ruled over the pre-Flood civilization called Atlantis.

“…the Nephilim, who, according to our research, were real flesh-and-blood beings, and ruled as the antediluvian kings of the ancient world over a global kingdom whose capitol was Atlantis. As they were an expert sea-faring people—navigators—they were also depicted as sea gods, half-man, half-fish, and with the horns of a goat.

“H.P. Lovecraft’s most quintessential work, ‘The Call of Cthulhu’…comes from the Book of Enoch, the Nephilim story in Genesis, and the universal tale of the fall of Atlantis. …the remains of a high civilization of sea-faring, ocean-obsessed people…is exactly what Atlantis is described as being, and…their kings, or ‘gods’ were depicted as half-man, half-fish.” (923)

According to Dagobert’s Revenge, it was Enki (Set or Satan) who sired the Merovingian race; moreover, the head of Capricorn, the Makaru, may be a form of Merovee, progenitor of the Grail kings, who are successive incarnations of the beast out of the cosmic sea:

“The Nephilim were banished to the center of the earth for disobeying God by mating with the daughters of men and teaching them the ‘forbidden’ arts. In this publication the Nephilim have been identified as the Fathers of the Merovingians…

“…Writing of the Great Old Ones or Elder Gods from Lovecraftian lore, Grant says, ‘The letter M, the key vibration of the plane of the Elder Gods, is represented mythologically as the sea-goat, Makaru or as the crocodile, the beast of the waters.’ Couldn’t Makaru be a form of Merovee who spawned the Merovingians, and was sired himself from a sea-bull? Tracy Twyman has already written of the connections between Lovecraft’s Necronomicon Mythos and the Merovingians in her article Dead But Dreaming: The Great Old Ones of Lovecraftian Legend Reinterpreted as Sumerian/Atlantean Kings…” (571)

Mount Hermon/Sion

The Book of Enoch is a pseudepigraphical book (a work that claims to have been authored by a biblical character) which was translated into English in 1821 by a professor at Oxford University. The story of the fallen angels, which is related in great detail in chapters 6-8 of the Book of Enoch, includes “[a] curious reference in Enoch VI.6, [which] says that…the wicked angels descended on the summit of the mountain and named it Hermon.” (170:372)

“And the angels, the children of heaven, saw them [handsome and beautiful daughters] and desired them… And they were altogether two hundred; and they descended into Ardos, which is the summit of Hermon. And they called the mount Armon, for they swore and bound one another by a curse.” 251:15 [I Enoch VI.6, vs.1-5]

“Hittite and biblical records support the use of Hermon as a dwelling place of gods…Baal-gad…and Baal-hermon…” (252:158) ["Hermon, Mount"]

And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. – Num. 13:33

“Throughout history, the idea of ‘The Watchers’ have been found in Sumeria, Peru, Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece.

“Sumerian texts repeatedly state that the Anunnaki came to Earth. The Anunnaki were four great Gods who created man: An ['Sky', the source of rain and most powerful of the gods]; Enlil ['Lord Wind', the power in 'Growing Weather']; Ninhursaga ['Lady of the Stony Ground', mother of wildlife]; and Enki [rival of Ninhursaga]. The term ‘Anunnaki’ literally means ‘from or of the sky.’ The Annunaki are regarded by some as the Sumerian ‘fates’.

‘They are spoken of in the Bible as the ‘Anakim’ and ‘Anak’ or ‘Nefilim’ (nephilum). ‘Nefilim’ (nephilum) in Hebrew means ‘giants’ or ‘those who have fallen’. For reference I offer: The King James Bible; Young’s Literal translation; HSV (Hebrew Names version); ASV (American Standard version) and RSV (Revised Standard version). Numbers 13:22, 28 & 33; Deu 1:28, 9:2…

“The Watchers were a specific race of divine beings known in Hebrew as ‘nun resh ayin’ or ‘irin’ meaning ‘those who watch’ or ‘those who are awake’, which is translated into Greek as Egrhgoroi egregoris or grigori, meaning ‘watchers’. The early books of the Bible speak of some vague heavenly beings called malochim (singular, malach). Although malach is usually translated ‘angel’, its literal meaning is ‘messenger.’

“As recounted in the Dead Sea Scrolls: ‘…..In the days of Jared’, two hundred Watchers ‘descended’ on ‘Ardis’, the summit of Mount Hermon – a mythical location equated with the triple peak of Jebel esh Sheikh (9,200 feet), placed in the most northerly region of ancient Palestine. On this mountain the Watchers swear an oath and bind themselves by ‘mutual imprecations’, apparently knowing full well the consequences their actions will have both for themselves and for humanity as a whole. It is a pact commemorated in the name given to the place of their ‘fall’, for in Hebrew the word Hermon, or harem, translates as ‘curse’.” – 859


Capricornus
http://www.topastronomer.com/StarCharts ... cornus.php

Capricornus is a constellation in the southern hemisphere. It is one of the constellations of the zodiac. Capricornus represents a sea-goat, a mythical creature that is half goat, half fish. Its name means "horned male goat" or "goat horn" in Latin. Like other zodiac constellations, Capricornus was first charted by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century.

The constellation was well known in Sumerian and Babylonian cultures. Sumerians called it Suhur-mash-sha (the goat-fish), while Babylonians identified it with the god Ea, who had the upper body of a human and lower body of a fish. The Greeks later renamed it to Aegoceros (goat-horned) and associated it with Pan, god of nature, who also had a goat's legs and a horn.

In Greek mythology, Pan earned his place in the sky after helping Zeus and other gods defeat the Titans. When Pan was attacked by the monster Typhon, he jumped into the river Nile and transformed himself into a goat to escape detection. As he was half-way submerged, he took the form of a fish from the waist down. In another Greek tale, the constellation represents Amalthaea, the goat that nursed Zeus as an infant.

Arabs, Turks, Persians and Syrians all associated Capricornus with a goat. In some parts of the Orient, Capricornus was called the "Southern Gate of the Sun," because it was the constellation in which the Sun reached its lowest point on the ecliptic.

The constellation Capricornus occupies an area of 414 square degrees and contains two stars with known planets. It can be seen at latitudes between +60° and -90° and is best visible at 9 p.m. during the month of September. It lies in a region called the Sea or the Water, which is a part of the sky that contains many water-related constellations: Aquarius (the Water-bearer), Cetus (the Whale), Pisces (the Fishes), Eridanus (the Great River), and others.

The tropic of Capricorn, the latitude at which the Sun appears overhead at noon on the winter solstice, which occurs between December 21 and 22, got its name because in Greek times the Sun was passing through Capricornus on this date. In tropical astrology, Capricorn’s rule still begins on the first day of winter. The Tropic of Capricorn, however, has since moved to the constellation Sagittarius.

Capricornus is the second faintest of the zodiac constellations, after Cancer. It has several bright stars that form a celestial triangle: [1583] alpha-2 Capricorni, [1582] beta Capricorni and [1587] omega Capricorni.

[1581] delta Capricorni, also known as Deneb Algedi ("the goat’s tail") and Scheddi, is the brightest star in the constellation, with a magnitude of 2.85. It is a four-star system with a white giant for the primary component.

[1582] beta Capricorni or Dabih ("the butcher") is the second brightest star in Capricornus. It is another multiple star system. In a small telescope, it appears as a binary star, but each of the two main components – beta-1 Capricorni or Dabih Major and beta-2 Capricorni or Dabih Minor - are in fact made up of several stars. Dabih Major contains an orange bright giant and a blue-white dwarf. Dabih Minor is a binary star with an A0-giant for a primary and a companion with an atmosphere unusually rich with mercury and manganese.

Alpha Capricorni is also known as Algedi or Giedi, from the Arabic word for "the goat." It is a multiple star that consists of two yellow and orange stars, both binaries themselves, and can be seen by the naked eye. [1583] alpha-2 Capricorni has a magnitude 11 companion and [1589] alpha-1 Capricorni, the fainter of the two, has a wide magnitude 9 companion.

[1587] omega Capricorni, occasionally referred to as Baten Algiedi ("belly of the goat"), is a red giant with a magnitude of 4.12, about 630 light-years distant from Earth. It is a variable star. Both its absolute magnitude and luminosity constantly fluctuate.

[1584] gamma Capricorni, also known as Nashira ("bearer of good news"), is a blue-white giant with a magnitude of 3.69.

[1585] zeta Capricorni or Marakk ("loins") is a magnitude 4 binary star with a yellow supergiant for a primary component and a white dwarf for its companion. The supergiant, zeta Capricorni A, is a prototypical example of a Barium star. The zeta Capricorni system lies approximately 398 light-years from Earth.

Capricornus also contains a magnitude 8 globular cluster, Messier 30 or NGC 7099. It can be spotted near [1585] zeta Capricorni in a small telescope.

WAS MOSES AKHENATEN?
http://www.greatdreams.com/moses.htm

To account for the complexities of the foundational event through which monotheism was established goes back to the short-lived monotheistic revolution of the Egyptian king Akhenaten (1360-1340 B.C.E.).

The TURIN PAPYRUS OF KINGS, also called The TURIN CANON, is a Papyrus written during the reign of the Pharaoh Rameses II (RA-MOSES, the Pharaoh of Exodus, 1300 B.C.). The biblical chronology dates the birth of Moses to around 1527 BC. In the new chronology of Egypt, the pharaoh on the throne of Egypt was Neferhotep I of the 13th Dynasty.

One of the most troubling problems for biblical archaeologists was the lack of archaeological evidence for Moses and the Israelites in Egypt. Prior to the Exodus, there were hundreds of thousands of Israelites in Egypt, yet little or no evidence of their existence has been found, even though the sojourn is recorded as lasting for centuries in the Scriptures!

Aaron is an older brother of Moses, a Levite and the first high priest. The Islamic sources have very scant details of Aaron, but from the Bible, we know that Aaron was the eldest son of Amram and Jochebed, a daughter of Levi (Exodus 6:20). Aaron is three years older than Moses but younger than Miriam (Exodus 2:1,4; 7:7).

The biblical chronology dates the birth of Moses to around 1527 BC. In the new chronology of Egypt, the pharaoh on the throne of Egypt was Neferhotep I of the 13th Dynasty.

Artapanus writes that a pharaoh named Palmanothes was persecuting the Israelites. His daughter Merris adopted a Hebrew child who grew up to be called prince Mousos. Merris married a pharaoh Khenephres. Prince Mousos grew up to administer the land on behalf of this pharaoh. He led a military campaign against the Ethiopians who were invading Egypt; however, upon his return, Khenephres grew jealous of his popularity. Mousos then fled to Arabia to return when Khenephres died and lead the Israelites to freedom. It may be only a Mosaic story with similarities to the biblical account, yet the only pharaoh with the name Khenephres was Sobekhotep IV, who took the name Khaneferre at his coronation. He reigned soon after Neferhotep I of the 13th Dynasty, as mentioned above, the pharaoh in power at Moses' birth!

Josephus in his Antiquities of the Jews' with access to very old manuscripts and writing in AD 93, also mentioned Moses' Ethiopian or Kushite war. Here, Moses led an Egyptian army down the Nile valley, past the Third Cataract, deep into Kush (modern Ethiopia). In the British Museum is a stela (page 261, fig. 289) which tells of a 13th Dynasty pharaoh undertaking a campaign south into the region of Kush. That pharaoh is none other than Khaneferre, the step-father of Moses according to Artapanus. He is the only 13th Dynasty pharaoh who is recorded as having campaigned into Upper Nubia or Ethiopia.

At Kerma on the Nile an official Egyptian building was found, outside of which was discovered a statue of Khaneferre, so dating this building to the 13th Dynasty. This is many hundreds of kilometers south of the known boundaries of 13th Dynasty Egypt and may have been a governor's residence'. It would have been built to secure Egyptian interests in the area after the military victory of the Egyptians led by Moses, as this was the only Kushite war at that time with Egypt.

As Moses was a prince of Egypt and was 40 years old according to the Bible when he fled to Arabia, he could certainly have led this military operation - an Israelite leading an Egyptian army to war! If this part of Josephus' account is true then it adds weight to the rest of his account of the life of Moses and also gives us some firmer evidence of the existence of this charismatic leader!

The scholar and Genealogist of the Holy Bloodline of Jesus, Laurence Gardner, has this to say in his book "Bloodline of the Holy Grail"

It is now generally acknowledged that the opening chapters of the Old Testament do not accurately represent the early history of the world, as they appear to suggest. More precisely, they tell the story of a family - a family that in time became a race comprising various tribes; a race that in turn became the Hebrew nation. If Adam can ever be said to have been the first of a type (notwithstanding the whole of human evolution behind him), then he was certainly the progenitor of the Hebrews and the tribes of Israel.

Two of the most intriguing characters of the Old Testament are Joseph and Moses. Each played an important role in the formation of the Hebrew Nation, and both have historical identities that can be examined quite independently of the Bible. Genesis 41:39-43 tells how Joseph was made Governor of Egypt. And Pharoah said unto Joseph...Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled; only in that throne will I be greater than thou...and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.

Referring to Moses, Exodus 11:3 informs us similarly that:

Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharoah's servants, and in the sight of the people.

Yet for all of this status and prominence neither Joseph nor Moses appear in any Egyptian record under either of those names.

The annals of Rameses II (1304-1237 BC) specify that Semitic people were settled in the land of Goshen. It is further explained that they went there from Canaan for want of food. But why should Rameses' scribes mention this settlement at Goshen? According to standard Bible chronology the Hebrews went to Egypt some three centuries before the time of Rameses, and made their Exodus in about 1491 BC, long before he came to the throne. So, by virtue of this first-hand scribal record, the standard Bible chronology as generally promotes is seen to be incorrect.

It is traditionally presumed that Joseph was sold into slavery in Egypt in the 1720's BC, and was made Governor by the Pharoah a decade or so later. Afterwards, his father Jacob (Israel) and 70 family members followed him into Goshen to escape the famine in Canaan. Notwithstanding this, Genesis 47:11, Exodus 1:11 and Number 33:3 all refer to 'the land of Rameses' (in Egyptian, 'the house of Rameses'). This was a complex of grain storehouses built by the Israelites for Rameses II in Goshen some 300 after they were supposed to be there!

It transpires, therefore, that the alternative 'Jewish Reckoning' is more accurate that the 'Standard Chronology'; Joseph went to Egypt not in the early 18th Century BC but in the early 15th Century BC. There he was appointed Chief Minister to Tuthmosis IV (ruled c. 1413-1405 BC). To the Egyptians, however, Joseph the Vizir was known as Yuya, and his story is particularly revealing not just in relation to the Biblical account of Joseph but also in respect of Moses. The Cairo-born historian and linguist Ahmed Osman has made an in-depth study of these personalities in their contemporary Egyptian environment, and his findings are of great significance.

When Pharoah Tuthmosis died, his son married his sibling sister Sitamun (as was the Pharonic tradition) so that he could inherit the throne as Pharoah Amenhotep III. Shortly afterwards he also married Tiye, daughter of the Chief Minister (Joseph/Yuya). It was decreed, however, that no son born to Tiye could inherit the throne. Because of the overall length of her father Joseph's governorship there was a general fear that the Israelites were gaining too much power in Egypt. So when Tiye became pregnant, the edict was given that her child should be killed at birth if a son. Tiye's Jewish relatives lived at Goshen, and she herself owned a summer palace a little upstream at Sarw, where she went to have her baby. She did indeed bear a son but the royal midwives conspired with Tiye to float the child downstream in a reed basket to the house of her father's half-brother Levi.

The boy, Aminadab (born around 1394 BC), was duly educated in the eastern delta country by the Egyptian priests of Ra. In his teenage years he went to live at Thebes. By that time, his mother had acquired more influence than the senior queen, Sitamun, who had never borne a son and heir to the Pharoah, only a daughter who was called Nefertiti. In Thebes, Aminadab could not accept the notion of Aten, an omnipresent God who had no image. Aten was thus an equivalent of the Hebrew "Adonai" (a title borrowed from the Phoenician and meaning 'Lord') in line with Israelite teachings. At that time Aminadab (Hebrew equivalent of Amenhotep - 'Amun is pleased') changed his name to Akhenaten (servant of Aten).

Pharoah Amenhotep then suffered a period of ill health. Because there was no direct male heir to the royal house, Akhenaten married his half-sister Nefertiti in order to rule as co-regent during this difficult time. When in due course Amenhotep III died, Akhenaten was able to succeed as Pharoah - officially called Amenhotep IV.

Akhenaten and Nefertiti had six daughters and a son, Tutankhaten. Pharoah Akhenaten closed all the temples of the Egyptian gods and built new temples to Aten. He also ran a household that was distinctly domestic - quite different from the kingly norm in ancient Egypt. One many fronts he became unpopular - particularly with the priests of the former national deity Amun (or Amen) and of the sun god Ra (or Re).

Plots against his life proliferated. Loud were the threats of armed insurrection if he did not allow the traditional gods to be worshipped alongside the faceless Aten but Akhenaten refused, and was eventually forced to abdicate short-term in favour of his cousin Smenkhkare, who was succeeded by Akhenaten's son Tutankhaten. On taking the throne at the age of about 11, Tutankhaten was obliged to change his name to Tutankhamun. He, in turn, was only to live and rule for a further nine or ten years, meeting his death while still comparatively young.

Akhenaten, meanwhile, was banished from Egypt. He fled with some retainers to the remote safety of Sanai, taking with him his royal sceptre topped with a brass serpent. To his supporters he remained very much the rightful monarch, the heir to the throne from which he had been ousted, and he was still regarded by them as the Mose, Meses or Mosis (heir/born of) - as in Tuthmosis (born of Tuth) and Rameses (fashioned of Ra).

Evidence from Egypt indicates that Moses (Akhenaten led his people from Pi-Rameses (near modern Kantra) southward, through Sinai, towards Lake Timash. This was extremely marshy territory and, although manageable on foot with some difficulty, any pursuing horses and chariots would have foundered disastrously.

Among the retainers who fled with Moses were the sons and families of Jacob (Israel). Then at the instigation of their leader, they constructed the tabernacle at the foot of Mount Sinai. Once Moses had died, they began their invasion of the country left by their forefathers so long before. But Canaan (Palestine) had changed considerably in the meantime, having been infiltrated by waves of Philistines and Phoenicians. The records tell of great sea battles, and of massive armies marching to war. At length, the Hebrews (under their new leader, Joshua) were successful and, once across the Jordan, they took Jericho from the Canaanites, gaining a real foothold in their traditional Promised Land.

Following Joshua's death, the ensuing period of rule by appointed 'judges' was a catalogue of Jewish disaster until the disparate Hebrew tribes united under their first king, Saul, in about 1055 BC with the conquest of Palestine (Canaan) as complete as possible, David of Bethlehem - a descendant of Abraham - married Saul's daughter to become King of Judah (corresponding to half the Palestinian territory). By 1048 BC, he had also acquired Israel (the balance of the territory) becoming overall King of the Jews. The Bloodline of the Holy Grail had begun.

As Moses grew to adulthood in Egypt, he assumed the title of Tutmoses II as heir to the throne of Egypt, but when he left Egypt after committing murder, he was replaced, and another man assumed that title. It is accepted that Akhenaten and Nefertiti had six daughters. No son was ever shown in reliefs. The names of the daughters were; Meritaten (1349 BC) - Meketaten and Ankhenspaaten (1346 BC) - Neferneferuaten (1339 BC) - Neferneferure and Setepenre (1338).

In 1337 BC the official family, with all six of Nefertiti's daughters was shown for the last time. In 1336 BC Meketaten died in childbirth. In 1335 Nefertiti seemed to vanish, assumed dead.

Akhenaten's minor wives included Merytaten, Kiya, Mekytaten, and Akhesenpaaten. Akhesenpaaten was also a wife to her brother King Tut.

Amram told his wife Jochebed (Heb. Yowkebed) and after the child was born they nursed him for three months till forced to set him afloat in an ark of bulrushes upon the river to be left for its preservation by God.

Thermuthis (Thutmose II, married his half-sister, Hatshepsut) the king's daughter saw the child in the cradle, who brought a Hebrew woman to nurse the infant. She named him Mouses. He was the seventh generation from Abraham.

In the Talmud (a collection of ancient Rabbinic writings of Orthodox Judaism compiled about A.D. 200) it states Moses' mother placed him in an ark of bulrushes in the brink of the river, where he was found by Bathia, Pharaoh's daughter, she adopted him and brought him up as Prince Ahmose at the Egyptian Court. The Biblical version is in Exodus 2:1-10.

If the Exodus occurred at 1440 B.C. then the 18th Dynasty of Thutmose III (1504/3?-1450/47 B.C.) and his mother Hatshepsut (1503-1482), the woman king, would be considered Moses protectors. Hatshepsut, the queen was forced to flee during the reign of Thutmose III.

"Moses was an initiated priest of Amon and the presumed son of Pharaoh's daughter.

In Acts 7:22 Stephen in an address to the Sanhedrin asserts that Moses was not only instructed in the science and learning of the Egyptians but was also endowed with oratorical ability and distinctive leadership qualities. After 40 years of age, he killed an Egyptian which made him flee from the Pharaoh to Midian where he stayed for forty years in seclusion.

The new monarch Amenhotep II (1447-1421 B.C.) was probably the Pharaoh of the 10 plagues of Exodus which probably took place in the spring of 1446 B.C. (some scholars believe it to be 1290 B.C.). Solomon’s temple in 966 B.C. plus 480 years to the Exodus equals 1446.

Rameses II, also Ramesses II or Ramses II known as "Rameses the Great," 14th-13th century B.C., King of Egypt (1304-1237 B.C.) whose reign was marked by the building of numerous monuments was probably king during the Jewish exodus from Egypt only if Solomon’s temple was built in 810 B.C.

The 156 year variation is still in dispute among archaeologist to date.

The Atlantean Black Magicians are the Nephalim; the Illuminati bloodlines are the "children of the Nephalim"

CEREMONIAL MAGIC AND SORCERY
http://www.sacred-texts.com/eso/sta/sta24.htm

CEREMONIAL magic is the ancient art of invoking and controlling spirits by a scientific application of certain formulæ. A magician, enveloped in sanctified vestments and carrying a wand inscribed with hieroglyphic figures, could by the power vested in certain words and symbols control the invisible inhabitants of the elements and of the astral world. While the elaborate ceremonial magic of antiquity was not necessarily evil, there arose from its perversion several false schools of sorcery, or black magic.

Egypt, a great center of learning and the birthplace of many arts and sciences, furnished an ideal environment for transcendental experimentation. Here the black magicians of Atlantis continued to exercise their superhuman powers until they had completely undermined and corrupted the morals of the primitive Mysteries. By establishing a sacerdotal caste they usurped the position formerly occupied by the initiates, and seized the reins of spiritual government. Thus black magic dictated the state religion and paralyzed the intellectual and spiritual activities of the individual by demanding his complete and unhesitating acquiescence in the dogma formulated by the priestcraft. The Pharaoh became a puppet in the hands of the Scarlet Council--a committee of arch-sorcerers elevated to power by the priesthood.

These sorcerers then began the systematic destruction of all keys to the ancient wisdom, so that none might have access to the knowledge necessary to reach adeptship without first becoming one of their order. They mutilated the rituals of the Mysteries while professing to preserve them, so that even though the neophyte passed through the degrees he could not secure the knowledge to which he was entitled. Idolatry was introduced by encouraging the worship of the images which in the beginning the wise had erected solely as symbols for study and meditation.

False interpretations were given to the emblems and figures of the Mysteries, and elaborate theologies were created to confuse the minds of their devotees. The masses, deprived of their birthright of understanding and groveling in ignorance, eventually became the abject slaves of the spiritual impostors. Superstition universally prevailed and the black magicians completely dominated national affairs, with the result that humanity still suffers from the sophistries of the priestcrafts of Atlantis and Egypt.

Fully convinced that their Scriptures sanctioned it, numerous mediæval Qabbalists devoted their lives to the practice of ceremonial magic. The transcendentalism of the Qabbalists is founded upon the ancient and magical formula of King Solomon, who has long been considered by the Jews as the prince of ceremonial magicians.
Among the Qabbalists of the Middle Ages were a great number of black magicians who strayed from the noble concepts of the Sepher Yetzirah and became enmeshed in demonism and witchcraft. They sought to substitute magic mirrors, consecrated daggers, and circles spread around posts of coffin nails, for the living of that virtuous life which, without the assistance of complicated rituals or submundane creatures, unfailingly brings man to the state of true individual completion.

Those who sought to control elemental spirits through ceremonial magic did so largely with the hope of securing from the invisible worlds either rare knowledge or supernatural power. The little red demon of Napoleon Bonaparte and the infamous oracular heads of de Medici are examples of the disastrous results of permitting elemental beings to dictate the course of human procedure. While the learned and godlike dæmon of Socrates seems to have been an exception, this really proves that the intellectual and moral status of the magician has much to do with the type of elemental he is capable of invoking. But even the dæmon of Socrates deserted the philosopher when the sentence of death was passed.

Transcendentalism and all forms of phenomenalistic magic are but blind alleys--outgrowths of Atlantean sorcery; and those who forsake the straight path of philosophy to wander therein almost invariably fall victims to their imprudence. Man, incapable of controlling his own appetites, is not equal to the task of governing the fiery and tempestuous elemental spirits.

Many a magician has lost his life as the result of opening a way whereby submundane creatures could become active participants in his affairs. When Eliphas Levi invoked the spirit of Apollonius of Tyana, what did he hope to accomplish? Is the gratification of curiosity a motive sufficient to warrant the devotion of an entire lifetime to a dangerous and unprofitable pursuit? If the living Apollonius refused to divulge his secrets to the profane, is there any probability that after death he would disclose them to the curious-minded? Levi himself did not dare to assert that the specter which appeared to him was actually the great philosopher, for Levi realized only too well the proclivity of elementals to impersonate those who have passed on. The majority of modern mediumistic apparitions are but elemental creatures masquerading through bodies composed of thought substance supplied by the very persons desiring to behold these wraiths of decarnate beings.

Some understanding of the intricate theory and practice of ceremonial magic may be derived from a brief consideration of its underlying premises.

First. The visible universe has an invisible counterpart, the higher planes of which are peopled by good and beautiful spirits; the lower planes, dark and foreboding, are the habitation of evil spirits and demons under the leadership of the Fallen Angel and his ten Princes.

Second. By means of the secret processes of ceremonial magic it is possible to contact these invisible creatures and gain their help in some human undertaking. Good spirits willingly lend their assistance to any worthy enterprise, but the evil spirits serve only those who live to pervert and destroy.

Third. It is possible to make contracts with spirits whereby the magician becomes for a stipulated time the master of an elemental being.

Fourth. True black magic is performed with the aid of a demoniacal spirit, who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life, with the understanding that after death the magician shall become the servant of his own demon. For this reason a black magician will go to inconceivable ends to prolong his physical life, since there is nothing for him beyond the grave.

The most dangerous form of black magic is the scientific perversion of occult power for the gratification of personal desire. Its less complex and more universal form is human selfishness, for selfishness is the fundamental cause of all worldly evil. A man will barter his eternal soul for temporal power, and down through the ages a mysterious process has been evolved which actually enables him to make this exchange. In its various branches the black art includes nearly all forms of ceremonial magic, necromancy, witchcraft, sorcery, and vampirism. Under the same general heading are also included mesmerism and hypnotism, except when used solely for medical purposes, and even then there is an element of risk for all concerned.

Though the demonism of the Middle Ages seems to have disappeared, there is abundant evidence that in many forms of modern thought--especially the so-called "prosperity" psychology, "willpower-building" metaphysics, and systems of "high-pressure" salesmanship--

The practice of magic--either white or black--depends upon the ability of the adept to control the universal life force--that which Eliphas Levi calls the great magical agent or the astral light. By the manipulation of this fluidic essence the phenomena of transcendentalism are produced. The famous hermaphroditic Goat of Mendes was a composite creature formulated to symbolize this astral light. It is identical with Baphomet the mystic pantheos of those disciples of ceremonial magic, the Templars, who probably obtained it from the Arabians.

Black magic has merely passed through a metamorphosis, and although its name be changed its nature remains the same.

A well-known magician of the Middle Ages was Dr. Johannes Faustus, more commonly known as Dr. Faust. By a study of magical writings he was enabled to bind to his service an elemental who served him for many years in various capacities. Strange legends are told concerning the magical powers possessed by Dr. Faust. Upon one occasion the philosopher, being apparently in a playful mood, threw his mantle over a number of eggs in a market-woman's basket, causing them to hatch instantly. At another time, having fallen overboard from a small boat, he was picked up and returned to the craft with his clothes still dry. But, like nearly all other magicians, Dr. Faust came at length to disaster; he was found one morning with a knife in his back, and it was commonly believed that his familiar spirit had murdered him. Although Goethe's Dr. Faust is generally regarded as merely a fictional character, this old magician actually lived during the sixteenth century. Dr. Faust wrote a book describing his experiences with spirits, a section of which is reprinted below. (Dr. Faust must not be confused with Johann Fust, the printer.)

The Pentagram

In symbolism, an inverted figure always signifies a perverted power. The average person does not even suspect the occult properties of emblematic pentacles. On this subject the great Paracelsus has written: "No doubt many will scoff at the seals, their characters and their uses, which are described in these books, because it seems incredible to them that metals and characters which are dead should have any power and effect. Yet no one has ever proved that the metals and also the characters as we know them are dead, for the salts, sulphur, and quintessences of metals are the highest preservatives of human life and are far superior to all other simples."

The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed.

A good instance of this practice is found in the pentagram, or five-pointed star, made of five connected lines. This figure is the time-honored symbol of the magical arts, and signifies the five properties of the Great Magical Agent, the five senses of man, the five elements of nature, the five extremities of the human body. By means of the pentagram within his own soul, man not only may master and govern all creatures inferior to himself, but may demand consideration at the hands of those superior to himself.

The pentagram is used extensively in black magic, but when so used its form always differs in one of three ways: The star may be broken at one point by not permitting the converging lines to touch; it may be inverted by having one point down and two up; or it may be distorted by having the points of varying lengths. When used in black magic, the pentagram is called the "sign of the cloven hoof," or the footprint of the Devil. The star with two points upward is also called the "Goat of Mendes," because the inverted star is the same shape as a goat's head. When the upright star turns and the upper point falls to the bottom, it signifies the fall of the Morning Star.


Maya
http://www.religiousbook.net/Books/Onli ... rt_12.html

The Atlanteans who moved to the American continent also created a hearth of the highest spiritual culture there. In particular, they built sanctuaries for spiritual initiations that had a form of pyramids.

Special research shows evidence that the culture of Maya reached a very high level. The Maya possessed knowledge about the Supreme Universal God, the Creator, Whom they called Hunab Ku (in the Mayan or Atlantic language), and His Fiery Manifestation in the Creation — Itzamna.

But… later, primitivism started to prevail there as well. The Fiery State of the Creator was reduced in people’s minds to worshipping regular fire which they started to deify and regard as a medium between people and “gods”: the “gods” were believed to receive food from men via fire in the form of burnt sacrifice. Later it was “discovered” that “gods” also needed human sacrifice…

And then cannibals — the Aztecs and Toltecs — came to the land of Maya.

What resulted from the combining of cannibalistic religious “culture” with the fragmentary information about the importance of possessing the power of refined consciousness we can see from the book of Carlos Castaneda The Eagle’s Gift [54]: black magicians hunted spiritually advanced individuals and when they caught them they would eat their bodies while they were still alive, cutting off pieces with a knife. They hoped to take possession of their personal power through this… I wonder if it was those magicians who ate bodies of all last true spiritual seekers?

This was the end of the surge of spiritual culture of Central American Indians. And then Spanish “Christians” invaded Central America and exterminated almost all Indians who lived in that region.

Opening the Gateway to the Abyss?

Great Cthulhu - Lovecraft's Necronomicon - The Old Ones
http://www.think-aboutit.com/Misc/great_cthulhu.htm

The Necronomicon tells of the Old Ones, who arrived on the primal earth from "dark stars". When land appeared they swarmed from the oceans to build cities at the poles and raise temples to Those cursed by the Gods. Their ghoulish spawn ruled the earth until the Elder Lords, appalled at their abominations, acted:

"...casting Them forth from the Earth to the Void beyond the planes where chaos reigns and form abideth not. And the Elder Lords set Their seal upon the Gateway and the power of the Old Ones prevailest not against its might.

Loathsome Cthulhu rose then from the deeps and raged with exceeding great fury against the Earth Guardians. And They bound his venomous claws with potent spells and sealed him up within the City of R'lyeh wherein beneath the waves he shall sleep death's dream until the end of the Aeon." - Liber Logaeth (translated by Dr. John Dee)
In exile with their Master Azathoth, "Lord of All", in the chaotic Void, the Old Ones bide the day until they return to rule earth once again.

"However, before the complete influx of these elder forces into our present space-time continuum can be facilitated, the secret and primal gateways must be located, and opened, to allow access from 'outside the circles of time'. This gateway has been glyphed by Lovecraft as one of the Great Old Ones themselves - 'the noxious Yog-Sothoth who froths as primal slime in nuclear chaos beyond the nethermost outpost of space and time'. - Tenebrous, "The Aeon of Cthulhu Rising"

"HPL researcher Philip A. Shreffler states in The H.P. Lovecraft Companion that the acting principles of Yog-Sothoth and Azathoth are 'infinite expansion and infinite contraction' respectively" - Parker Ryan "Necronomicon Info Source"

"As Guardian of the Gate, he [Yog-Sothoth] is synonymous with Choronzon. The 'nethermost outpost', itself an opening or window to the dimensionality of the Great Old Ones (Universe B), is the star Sothis, or Sirius." - Tenebrous, "The Aeon of Cthulhu Rising"

"It is now possible to see the continuous flow and evolution of Aeons occurring simultaneously and passing over into the world of anti-matter. The Yog of Sothoth is the counterpoint - as the Aeon of Set- Thoth, or DA'ATH - of its Twin, the Yug-Hoor, or Aeon of Horus. Yog-Sothoth is the Gate through the aeons to the Star-Source beyond Yuggoth, the Yug or Aeon of Goth." - Kenneth Grant, Outside the Circles of Time, p. 214

"The knowledge and formula by which this gateway can be reopened can therefore be only apprehended through the negative vortex of DA'ATH. In the case of Lovecraft himself, who in waking life vehemently denied the vertical nature of the material with which he was dealing, the process of appropriation was almost completely subconscious, occurring through the medium of dream-experiences. As would be expected, the visitation of such unhuman and ultracosmic revelations took the form of the most hideous nightmares." - Tenebrous, "The Aeon of Cthulhu Rising"
"The Latin text came into the possession of Dr. John Dee in the sixteenth century. Dr. Dee made the only English translation of the Necronomicon known." - Parker Ryan, "The Necronomicon and Ancient Arab Magick"

"Dr. John Dee, the famous English magician, and his assistant Edward Kelly were at the court of the Emperor Rudolph II to discuss plans for making alchemical gold, and Kelly bought the copy from the so-called 'Black Rabbi' and Kabbalist, Jacob Eliezer, who had fled to Prague from Italy after accusations of necromancy. At that time Prague had become a magnet for magicians, alchemists and charletans of every kind under the patronage of Rudolph,

Dee and Kelly's "Enochian system has many parallels with HPL. Schueler asserts that the Enochian tradition proposes the existence of a God or Force which is the manifestation of Infinite Space similar to Crowley's Nuit and HPL's Yog-Sototh. Schueler also contends that The Divine manifestation of the nuclear point at the center of infinity (equivalent to Hadit or Azathoth) is also important to Enochian magick. The Enochian Keys state that the world is nearing an eon spanning Cycle in which Ancient Gods will return to their throne and the world will be forever changed. These keys also mention an imprisoned dragon (Cthulhu?)"

"The Necronomicon appears to have had a marked influence on Kelly; the character of his scrying changed, and he produced an extraordinary communication which struck horror into the Dee household...Kelly left Dee shortly afterwards. Dee translated the Necronomicon into English while warden of Christ's College, Manchester..."
- Colin Low, Necronomicon FAQ

"Dee's cipher manuscript was called Liber Logaeth, and was evidently "a portion of a larger manuscript, the origin and nature of which is not known. Due to its history and the similarity in content to the Cthulhu Mythos, this document has been presented...as being, at least a portion of, the document which was the inspiration for HPL's Necronomicon.

No Arabic manuscript is known to exist; the author Idries Shah carried out a search in the libraries of Deobund in India, Al-Azhar in Egypt, and the Library of the Holy City of Mecca, without success."

"The Arabic original was lost as early as Wormius' time, as indicated by his prefatory note (there is, however, a vague account of a secret copy appearing in San Francisco during the present century but later perishing by fire); and no sight of the Greek copy - which was printed in Italy between 1500 and 1550 - has been reported since the burning of a certain Salem man's library in 1692."

"Nathan of Gaza precipitated one of the most profound events in the history of Judaism. In 1665, while only 21 or 22 years old, he proclaimed that Sabbatai Tzevi was the Messiah."

Nathan also wrote the Sepher ha-Sha'are ha-Daath, a commentary on the Book of the Alhazred. "Nathan's purpose appears to have been to develop a methodology for a systematic exploration of the realms of the Klippoth [husks or shells of materiality which ensnare the spirit], as part of his mission to redeem the sparks [concentrated shards of the original creation], using some of Alhazred's techniques. It is an extraordinary development of Alhazred's work, identifying the Klippoth with the primordial Old Ones."

"Nathan developed a huge following and for many years Judaism was riven with charges of heresy. Many prominent Rabbis and community leaders sided with Nathan, and it took most of a century for the drama to unwind. Eventually the Sabbatean movement went underground, and while it is a certainty that a copy of the Sepher ha-Sha'are ha-Daath exists in a private library somewhere, no one is admitting that they have it."

"In the years from 1933-38 the few known copies of the Necronomicon simply disappeared; someone in the German government of Adolph Hitler took an interest in obscure occult literature and began to obtain copies by fair means or foul. Dee's translation disappeared from the Bodleian following a break-in in the spring of 1934. The British Museum suffered several abortive burglaries, and the Wormius edition was deleted from the catalogue and removed to an underground repository in a converted slate mine in Wales (where the Crown Jewels were stored during the 1939-45 war). Other libraries lost their copies, and today there is no library with a genuine catalogue entry for the Necronomicon. The current whereabouts of copies of the Necronomicon is unknown; there is a story of a large wartime cache of occult and magical documents in the Osterhorn area near Salzburg.

The "Great Beast" Aleister Crowley interpreted the horrifying communication by Kelly (under the influence of the Necronomicon four centuries earlier) "as the abortive first attempt of an extra-human entity to communicate the thelemic Book of the Law."

"There is no question that Crowley read Dee's translation of the Necronomicon in the Ashmolean, probably while researching Dee's papers; too many passages in Crowley's Book of the Law read like a transcription of passages in that translation."

"Succinctly stated, there is no 'Ancient One' in Sumerian Religion or mythology. Similarly, there are no 'Elder Gods'. Additionally, there exists no written record of any god, demon, or lesser figure whose names resemble those of the Chthonic pantheon. Some have advanced the proposition that Cthulhu is taken from the eponym Kutu-lu, a mangled rendering of 'man of Kutha'. This would suggest that Cthulhu is supposedly a title of Nergal, the patron deity of the city of Kutha in ancient Mesopotamia. Yet nowhere in any extant text is this title referred to. In fact, nowhere in any tablet is any god of the Mesopotamian pantheon referred to under the title 'man of...' Such a base descriptive was unheard of as a divine appellation."

"The Enuma Elish, the Babylonian Epic of Creation, attributed to the mid second millennium in the Old Babylonian period, stands not for the struggle between the forces of Darkness and Light, but rather serves to exemplify the movement from chaos to order in the political arena of this ancient land:" - Adapa, "The Necronomicon and Ancient Sumer: Dubunking the Myth"

Just as his observation about the physical origin of his country guided the ancient Mesopotamian in his speculations about the origins of the Universe, so do his memory and his experience of its political organization seem to have governed his thinking about the origins of order in that universe. Politics in Mesopotamia in the Old Babylonian Period was various and unstable and abounded in tribal and urban political forms. It ranged from near anarchy to democratic or semi-democratic forms based on general assemblies to monarchies. Its continually shifting power combinations and frequent attempts at achieving supremacy now by one, now by another, undoubtedly afforded many an object lesson in how to win power when common danger imposed unity and in how to preserve such power by wise and benevolent rule after the immediate danger was past. In the [Enuma Elish] epic, world order is seen as the outcome of just such a successful drive towards supremacy."
