Musical Worship Teams - Musical Mark of the Beast
ZOE or the Gnostic Eve (mother of the gods) was called Eve of Life (Eve-Zoe), namely, the female instructor of life. Afterwards, the authorities called it Beast, so that it might lead astray their modeled creatures.
"In the second century BC Jesus Ben Sira...
..........made Wisdom (Sophia)
.......... stand up in the Divine Council
.......... and sing her praises:
she had come forth from the mouth of the Most High as the Divine Word by which God had created the world... Wisdom leaving God to wander through the world in search of humanity, it is hard not to be reminded of the pagan goddesses such as Ishtar, Anat and Isis, who had also descended from the divine world in a redemptive.
"When monotheists fell in love with Greek philosophy, they inevitably wanted to try to adapt its God to their own." (Armstrong, Karen, A History of God, p. 67f)
The interpretation of the beast is the instructor. For it was found to be the wisest of all beings.
Pantheism: One form of pantheism, present in the early stages of Greek philosophy, held that the divine is one of the elements in the world
whose function is to animate the other elements that constitute the world.
This point of view, called Hylozoistic (Greek hyle, "matter," and zoe, "life") pantheism, is not monistic, as are most other forms of pantheism, but pluralistic.
Hule (g5208) hoo-lay'; perh. akin to 3586; a forest, i.e. (by impl.) fuel: - matter.
Culon (g3586) xoo'-lon; from another form of the base of 3582; timber (as fuel or material); by impl. a stick, club or tree or other wooden article or substance: - staff, stocks, tree, wood.
In Ezekiel 31 Assyrian as the enemy of God is identified as "the tallest tree in eden." He fills the role of Lucifer as the king of Babylon and of Tyre.
He / She is Lucifer.
The oldest known and well documented superstition is that mankind can "worship" through stimulating the human senses. This was the method condemned by Paul to the Corinthians. It is the antithesis of "worship in spirit" or in the human mind. The ancient stories universally see Satan using the external senses to hide the Word.
Apollo, another type of Sophia-Zoe, had his oracle just up the coast from Corinth. His name is also Apollyon or Abbadon and his most powerful weapons were women and music. Hermes is another model: he built his lyre--while still in his cradle--by scooping out a turtle shell and stringing it with the guts and then went out as the prototype thief. The modern version is that God or the audience can be manipulated by "praise." This is the ultimate expression of legalism. There was no "praise" or "instrumental worship" by the people's congregation of Israel. There was no praise service in the Synagogue or Biblical and historical church.
From all known history, music is the "weapon of choice" to destroy the Word of God by substituting the "superior" words of mankind. The poems or songs of the pagans were considered inspired and the more irrational the prophetess the more powerful the message from God. Assuredly presiding over a group which has assembled to learn the Word of Christ, and replac that with self-composed songs (their own spirit 1 Cor. 14:2) and especially instruments was always identified as irrational and that was proof that the "gods" were inside both the singer and the instruments.
Motive has nothing to do with it: the effect is destructive as proven by every known Hebrew or Greek word for musical terms or musical instruments. This is so well established that apologists for music are forced to claim that Yehovah had to adopt "the devil's instruments" because they were so effective. This is the model of many "commercial" models of Babylonian religion--by definition: if you have to buy it, it cannot be "Christian."
The power of music to collect the masses is defacto proof that it is not a spiritual weapon or instrument. "A Capella" is not "A Biblical" but the form of the church. Complex harmony does and is calculated to disassociate mind from emotion and is called "ogranum" or "after the pipe organ" and not after the revealed Word of God. The Britannica Online notes that "the upraising of hands and the adoption of melodic style of mystery hymns in addition to the Psalms" was Christianity complying with the Mystery Religions. Catholics fought this for many centuries.
David L. Miller proposes one explanation of why Christians have fallen under the ancient superstition that ritualistic "praise" in what may be the end-times:
"We enact many myths in the course of our lives. We feel deeply the configurations of many stories. We are the playground of a veritable theater full of Gods and Goddesses. What do the Gods and Goddesses want with us?
Our task is to incarnate them, become aware of their celebrate their forms,
so that we may better be able to account for our polytheism." (Ecumenical urge)
The ancient women were "incarnated" as gods or demons after their death because of the songs they composed. Among the Hittites they were put into the catalogs or song books and by reciting the words of the song writer you actually "reincarnated" the now-goddess. And therefore we worship the song writer rather than God who gave us an alternative resource of "songs" and Paul limited our "preaching and teaching" those in order to "sing and make melody in the heart" directed to God.
The new age goddesses being worshiped by singing (and selling) their songs is what incarnates them and is polytheism.
Sophia - Gnostic creation myth said Sophia was born from the primordial female power Sige.
Sophia gave birth to a male spirit, Christ, and a female spirit, Achamoth.
Goddess of Wisdom. The World Soul was born of Her smile. Seven fold mandala represents 7 branches of learning.
All records have Satan or Lucifer teaching humans such as Genun as the collective name for "Jubal, Jabal, Tubal-Cain and Naamah" the power to subvert the holy Sethites through wine, instrumental music and mixed sex choirs. The Sophia-Zoe figure was an ancient effort to create a feminine Deity-Mediator who subjected the male "god" and "word" figure to themselves. This relegated the male authority to organize the choirs and musical worship teams while ZOE sat at his right hand to instruct him. ZOE was identified as the "female instructing principle" to lead men astray and was therefore called "the BEAST." Zoe with all of her powers appear below:
(Note: the king of Tyre as the harp-playing prostitute would, after her return from seventy years captivity, again take up the harp to attract the dollars to the collection plates. However, she would make her prostitution religious by dedicating it to the use of the Lord but to buy rich robes for the priests)
"Lilith's children are called 'lilim.' In the Targum Jerusalem, the priestly blessing of Numbers VI:26 becomes: "The Lord bless thee in all thy doings, and preserve thee from the Lilim!" The fourth-century AD commentator Hieronymous identified Lilith with the Greek Lamia, a Libyan queen deserted by Zeus, whom his wife Hera robbed of her children. She took revenge by robbing other women of theirs.
'Naamah,' 'pleasant,' is explained as meaning that
'the demoness sang pleasant songs to idols.'
'Zmargad' suggests 'smaragdos,' the semi-precious aquamarine;
and may therefore be her submarine dwelling. A demon named Smaragos occurs in the Homeric Epigrams. From "Hebrew Myths" by Robert Graves and Raphael Patai.
Sophia or Sophia-Zoe came equipped to destroy mankind. She has the apple, the arrow, the sword, the musical instruments--trumpet and tabret. She or he through ZOE was the enlightener -- the beast.
"We see, therefore, that the arts also are consecrated to the service of the beings who dwell in the names of their founders; and that things cannot be held free from the taint of idolatry whose inventors have got a place among the gods for their discoveries. Nay, as regards the arts, we ought to have gone further back, and barred all further argument
by the position that the demons,
predetermining in their own interests from the first, among other evils of idolatry,
the pollutions of the public shows,
with the object of drawing man away from his Lord
and binding him to their own service,
carried out their purpose
by bestowing on him the artistic gifts which the shows require.
For none but themselves would have made provision and preparation for the objects they had in view; nor would they have given the arts to the world by any but those in whose names, and images,
and histories they set up for their own ends the artifice of consecration. Tertullian
The not too hidden message of the garden of Eden is that the "trees" were the powerful Assyrians whose power came from seducing people with mixed-sex choirs and instrumental music.

The serpents, however, of the magicians-(that is,) the gods of destruction-withstood the power of Moses in Egypt, but the rod of Moses reduced them all to subjection and slew them.
This universal serpent is, he says, the wise discourse of Eve. [Eve, the Mediatrix, was honored because the serpent taught her feminine knowledge]
This, he says, is the mystery of Edem, this the river of Edem;
this the mark that was set upon Cain,
that any one who findeth him might not kill him. This, he says, is Cain, [Gen. iv. 15] whose sacrifice [Gen. iv. 5.] the god of this world did not accept.
Cain is derived from a MUSICAL NOTE.
Click on down to Hippolytus Chapter XXI
11:15 - In return for their foolish and wicked thoughts, which led them astray to worship irrational serpents and worthless animals,
thou didst send upon them a multitude of irrational creatures to punish them,
11:16 - that they might learn that one is punished by the very things by which he sins. (Revelation 18)
Ezekiel informs us about Lucifer the "Enlightener"--
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Ezekiel 28:12
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Ezekiel 28:13
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Ezekiel 28:14
Lucifer is derived from the Hebrew which can mean praise or cursing. Indeed, ancient praising was self boast and making self vile in the belief that you had to arouse or awaken the gods to force them into action:
Halal (h1984) haw-lal'; a prim. root; to be clear (orig. of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence to make a show, to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causat. to celebrate; also to stultify: - (make) boast (self), celebrate, commend, (deal, make), fool (- ish, -ly), glory, give [light], be (make, feign self) mad (against), give in marriage, [sing, be worthy of] praise, rage, renowned, shine.
Hilluwl (h1974) hil-lool'; from 1984 (in the sense of rejoicing); a celebration of thanksgiving for harvest: - merry, praise.
Heyles (h1966)hay-lale'; from 1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning-star: - lucifer.
When God created an "evil spirit"
And the men of Shechem set liers in wait for him in the top of the mountains, and they robbed all that came along that way by them: and it was told Abimelech. Jud 9:25
And they went out into the fields, and gathered their vineyards, and trode the grapes, and made merry, and went into the house of their god, and did eat and drink, and cursed Abimelech. Jud.9:27
Qalal (h7043) kaw-lal'; a prim. root; to be (caus. make) light, lit. (swift, small, sharp, etc.) or fig. (easy, trifling, vile, etc.): - abate, make bright, bring into contempt, (ac-) curse, despise, (be) ease (- y, -ier), (be a, make, make somewhat, move, seem a, set) light (- en, - er, -ly, - ly afflict, -ly esteem, thing), * slight [-ly], be swift (- er), (be, be more, make, re-) vile, whet.
Tyre, like Judah, would go into captivity:
And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot. Isaiah 23:15
The song of the whore or prostitute was:
"Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered (as a male). Isaiah 23:16
A once-favorite instrument was called the Serpent. This is the picture of a brass one. Brass, the serpent and instruments are intimately connected because the "ringing" or "whispering" of brass gave mankind the ultimate power to manipulate the minds of others:
And the cobra is the "red throated" serpent represented by the word for "serpent" in the garden of Eden. Of the king of Tyre as the "Change Agent" of Lucifer:
As the literal serpent, Satan (Lucifer, Zoe) tried to dominate or "mount up to heaven" to overpower God or the Sun. In the religious practices in Babylonia, the "priests, prophets, prostitutes and musicians" tried to mount up objects like the Tower of Babylon. Music, of course is absolutely necessary to "ascend into the presence of God." In the illustration there were five known planets and the sun and moon for a seven-sphere universe. The "roving planets" in both the book of Jude and the book of Enoch which he quotes. These were "clouds without water" and their primary sin was the use of instrumental music and mixed-sex choirs to take away the key to knowledge of the Word. The other comparable sin was abortion. As a result, God will come with ten-thousand of his host to execute judgment upon them. The Book of Enoch. And the Book of Jude comments.
"Now, assuming that this is the "Father of the gods," by whom Rhea, whose common title is that of the Mother of the gods, and who is also identified with Ge, or the Earth-goddess, had the child called Muth, or Death, who could this "Mother of the gods" be, but just our Mother Eve?
And the name Rhea, or "The Gazer," bestowed on her, is wondrously significant. It was as "the gazer" that the mother of mankind conceived by Satan, and brought forth that deadly birth, under which the world has hitherto groaned.
It was through her eyes that the fatal connection was first formed between her and the grand Adversary,
under the form of a serpent, whose name, Nahash, or Nachash, as it stands in the Hebrew of the Old Testament,
also signifies "to view attentively," or "to gaze" (Gen 3:6) "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and pleasant to the eyes," &c.,
"she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat; and gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat."
Nachash, the serpent, is intimately identified with musical worship which, according to many myths, was that which led the holy people away from God's Word. See Serpent or Devil Worship.
Here, then, we have the pedigree of sin and death;
"Lust, when it had conceived, brought forth sin; and sin, when it was finished, brought forth death" (James 1:15).
Though Muth, or Death, was the son of Rhea, this progeny of hers came to be regarded,
- not as Death in the abstract,
- but as the god of death;
therefore, says Philo-Byblius, Muth was interpreted not only as death, but as Pluto.

According to the Britannica, the female Mut in Egyptian religion, a sky goddess and great divine mother. Mut may have originated either in the Nile River delta or in Middle Egypt. During the 18th dynasty (1539-1292 BC), she became the companion of the god Amon at Thebes, forming the Theban triad with him and with the youthful god Khons, who was said to be Mut's son. The name Mut means "mother," and her role was that of an older woman among the gods. She was associated with the uraeus (rearing cobra)
(SANCHUN) In the Roman mythology, Pluto was regarded as on a level, for honour, with Jupiter (OVID, Fasti); and in Egypt, we have evidence that Osiris, "the seed of the woman," was the "Lord of heaven," and king of hell, or "Pluto" (WILKINSON; BUNSEN); and it can be shown by a large induction of particulars (and the reader has somewhat of the evidence presented in this volume),
that he was none other than the Devil himself, supposed to have become incarnate; who, though through the first transgression, and his connection with the woman, he had brought sin and death into the world, had,
nevertheless, by means of them, brought innumerable benefits to mankind.
As the name Pluto has the very same meaning as Saturn, "The hidden one," so, whatever other aspect this name had, as applied to the father of the gods, it is to Satan, the Hidden Lord of hell.
From Hypostasis of Archons we understand that the "female" or Lucifer instructing principle taught the men how to become musical worship teams.
And Zoe (Life), the daughter of Pistis Sophia, cried out and said to him, "You are mistaken, Sakla!" - for which the alternative name is androgynous.
She breathed into his face, and her breath became a fiery angel for her; and that angel bound Yaldabaoth and cast him down into Tartaros below the abyss.
Now when his offspring Sabaoth saw the force of that angel, he repented and condemned his father and his mother, matter. [See Pantheism at the beginning above]
He loathed her, but he sang songs of praise up to Sophia and her daughter Zoe.
And Sophia and Zoe caught him up and gave him charge of the seventh heaven, below the veil between above and below. And he is called 'God of the forces, Sabaoth', since he is up above the forces of chaos, for Sophia established him.
Lucifer is Heylel (h1966) hay-lale'; from 1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning-star: - lucifer.
And this is derived from "praise." Halal (h1984) haw-lal'; a prim. root; to be clear (orig. of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence to make a show, to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causat. to celebrate; also to stultify: - (make) boast (self), celebrate, commend, (deal, make), fool (- ish, -ly), glory, give [light], be (make, feign self) mad (against), give in marriage, [sing, be worthy of] praise, rage, renowned, shine.
Now when these (events) had come to pass,
he made himself a huge four-faced chariot of cherubim,
and infinitely many angels to act as ministers,
and also harps and lyres.
And Sophia took her daughter Zoe
and had her sit upon his right to teach him about the things that exist in the eighth (heaven);
and the angel of wrath she placed upon his left.
Since that day, his right has been called 'life' (ZOE);
and the left has come to represent the unrighteousness of the realm of absolute power above.
It was before your time that they came into being.
From The Second Treatise of the Great Seth
Ancient and modern Gnosticism whose authority comes from the Babylonians or Chaldeans will be the end-time religion when the great whore religion will come to an end including her music and musicians. This is also found in the Old Testament with the king of Tyre being the "harp playing prostitute" as the bisexual Lucifer. The king of Babylon will be cast out to rest on a bed of maggots and his viols will go with him/her. Sophia-Zoe is both the light and enlightener of mankind - the image of Lucifer from which the Halal praise of the Old Testament is derived:
"For those who were in the world had been prepared by the will of our sister Sophia - she who is a whore - because of the innocence which has not been uttered.
"But the archons around Yaldabaoth were disobedient because of the Ennoia who went down to him from her sister Sophia. They made for themselves a union with those who were with them in a mixture of a fiery cloud, which was their Envy, and the rest who were brought forth by their creatures,
as if they had bruised the noble pleasure of the Assembly.
And therefore they revealed a mixture of ignorance in a counterfeit of fire and earth and a murderer, since they are small and untaught, without knowledge having dared these things,
and not having understood that light has fellowship with light, and darkness with darkness, and the corruptible with the perishable, and the imperishable with the incorruptible.
From Sophia from The Book of Wonders by David Jors, 16th century. Goddesses and Today's Culture.
"To revive gods and goddesses is no small task. Above all, it is not a task that reason or personal motives can accomplish or even assist in. One cannot construct archetypes on the basis of recognitions reached by the personal complex of mind and emotions. David L. Miller rightly observes:
"The Gods and Goddesses are not cute allegories and analogies, figures of speech for evangelizing and moralistic orators, just as they are neither psychological nor social roles. Rather, they are worlds of our existence; the deepest structures of reality. If we conjure up the presence of such structures of reality primarily or even partly because we would like to advance our own purposes, we commit sacrilege and invite the cruel retribution of the Olympians. Our watchword in these matters must never be "I want," but rather "do as Thou wilt." Ideologies, politics, "isms" of all kinds, as well as personal hurt and anger, must be left behind in the outer court. They must not be smuggled into the sanctuary where the deities reside. Of course, much of the contemporary "paganizing" and "Goddess talk" will not pass muster by these stringent yet essential standards.
"The discovery and assimilation of early heterodox Christian scriptures (such as the Nag Hammadi library) will also facilitate the revival of goddess figures within a new Gnostic Christian mythos. Goddesses such as Barbelo and Sophia, demigoddesses like Eve-Zoe and Norea, and heroines such as Mary Magdalene are emerging from exile and are awaiting reincorporation into Christian scriptures and liturgy. Things have never looked so good for a recovery of our polytheistic heritage and of our beautiful and mighty goddesses of old. One even feels that Christ, the incarnate paradigm of the Fullness, who assured us that in his Father's house there are many divinities [John 10:43.] would be pleased by the coming of a new polytheism."
It will come as no surprise that the adoption of music in worship and, by some, of Mary as the Mother of God, follows--without possibility of deviation--a sense of ecumenical collection of everyone under one world church. This can only happen when the Revealed Words of Christ are replaced with the Gnostic superstition that Solomon's "Wisdom" was someone other than the spirit or wisdom of the One God whose name, to us, is Jesus, Joshua or Jehovah-Saves.
Mary, Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix of All Graces and Advocate We are called to honor Our Lady in a special way for these times, under the title, "Mary, Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix of all Graces, and Advocate". We are called to promote fidelity to, and live in conformity with, the authentic teaching of Jesus Christ, as expressed through His Church and His Vicar on earth. Notice the pagan sacred heart and the nail prints in her hands.
"As the Mother of the Logos, Mary took on attributes of the Judaic biblical figure of Sophia, or Wisdom--described in Proverbs and Ecclesiasticus as God's eternal creation, a celestial feminine being who personified divine wisdom and mediating humanity's knowledge of God. In Roman Catholic theology,
Mary was explicitly identified as Sophia. The relationship of the Old Testament Sophia to the New Testament Logos, both of which represented the divine creative and revelatory wisdom, was thus obliquely reflected in the relationship of Mary to Christ. The figure of the Virgin Mother also absorbed some of the original meaning and function of the Holy Spirit--as principle of divine presence in the Church, as comforter, as mediator of wisdom and spiritual birth, and as instrument of Christ's entrance into the world.
"Catholicism signified the disguised return to the religion of the Great Mother who had been defeated by Yahweh." (Tarnas, Richard, The Passion of the Western Mind, p. 480).
The figure who taught Eve what is now regarded as superior knowledge was Satan of whom Lucifer is said to have been in the garden of Eden "walking among the firey stones" and the king of Tyre as a type is identified as the harp-playing prostitute.
