Holy Spirit as a Dove
Mother of Aphrodite is actually indigeneous to the Greek peninsula. She was the divine womb, the Deep (Tiamat in Babylon) referred to in the Bible, ruler of prophecy, sexuality, and inspiration. The dove, copper, and pigeons were sacred to her as they were to Aphrodite. Her name is related to Diana, well known as a Sky Goddess. This repudiates the Mother of the gods and of the DAUGHTER. The dove or Rock Pigeon is the "carrier" of the seven spirits of knowledge (Isaiah 11) and not of charismatic sexuality of which music is a primary stimulant.
Jack Cottrell, The Holy Spirit's Work in Conversion "Traditional, orthodox Christian faith says Jesus Christ is not only equal with the Father; he is also distinct from the Father in that he is a separate, distinct person, i.e., a separate center of consciousness with his own distinct thoughts, emotions, and actions." NO ORTHODOX TRINITARIAN TAUGHT THAT. There is ONE GOD and ONE LORD Jesus as the Christ. The "tri-nature" where Paul compared God's Spirit to our spirit is father, son and spirit: not God, Jesus and the spirit person (people)Holy Spirit Person? One should not think of God splitting himself up into three parts; that was a grotesque and indeed blasphemous idea. Karen Armstrong.
"The original inhabitants of Dodona were a tribe called the Selloi. Seven sacred priestesses led by Promeneia 'foremost in strength or speaking before the Moon' of the tribe founded Dione's oracle there, suggesting that the Pleiades may also have been associated with her. They also founded oracles at Epirus and Thebes. The oracles were established in oak or beech groves, because Dione was also a tree Goddess. The trees were treated with great care, pruned with golden sickles and protected by warrior priestesses. The sounds of the wind passing through their leaves or through bronze wind chimes hung from their branches were prophesied from, as were the flight patterns of sparrows, doves, and pigeons. The priestesses who interpreted these sounds and movements were old women called peleia 'wood pigeons' or 'ring doves.' The seven high priestesses were called doves, 'Pleiades.'
A further peculiarity of Dodona was the "bronze," a large gong set vibrating at every breeze by a scourge held in the hand of a figure standing over it;
the persistent ringing passed into a Greek proverbial phrase--Khalkos Dodones ("Brass of Dodona")--
for a continuous talker who has nothing to say.
The Re-Imaging women filling pulpits and colleges are promoting the worship of Sophia (ZOE's mother) and the EUCHARIST is accompanied with a love feast including honey:
E-Mail: did the Holy Spirit DESCEND as a dove descends or did He descent LIKE A DOVE or in the shape of a dove. We have added some comments for your consideration. The false gods such as Zeus was MARKED by the Eagle. God in Christ is not live off those of His kind and is not therefore a parasite. The Eagle and the Hawk speak of pompous warriors while the Dove speaks of things like quiet peace.
Then shall the Lord raise up a new priest. And to him
all the words of the Lord shall be revealed;
and he shall execute a righteous judgment upon the earth for a multitude of days.
And his star shall arise in heaven as of a king. Testament of Levi 5:13-15
And the knowledge of the Lord shall be poured forth upon the earth,
as the water of the seas.
The heavens shall be opened, and
from the temple of glory shall come upon him sanctification,
with the Father's voice as from Abraham to Isaac.
And the glory of the Most High shall be uttered over him and
the spirit of understanding and sanctification
shall rest upon him in the water. Testament of Levi 5:19,-22
And he shall open the gates of paradise,
and shall remove the threatening sword against Adam,
and he shall give to the saints to eat from the tree of life,
and the spirit of holiness shall be on them.
And Beliar shall be bound by him, and he shall give power to his children to tread upon the evil spirits. Testament of Levi 5:26-27
In Matthew 13 Jesus said that truth had been hidden in parables from the foundation of the world. Jesus spoke to the people in Jerusalem who were not true Israelites to HIDE the truth from them because they would use it destructivelly. Isaiah 6 and 29 show that the Jews were blinded to truth and Isaiah 48 shows why: they would pretend that it was all THEIR idea. Therefore, God has set them up to make fools of them and those who seek SPIRIT in the Word have that GIFT of being able to read whole thought patterns. I believe that Jesus also ACTED OUT parables which have a much deeper meaning and which simply POINT to false views well known by many who had grown up hearing the poets recite their fabulous tales.
John 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.As the CHRIST OF GOD, Jesus was God Incarnated. That is, God pictured as the FATHER was with Jesus Christ and when you saw the Father you saw the Son. Nevertheless, Christ had LAID ASIDE His full Majesty and Glory as the singular Deity and was subject to the powers of the human flesh. In the garden we see the SON praying to the FATHER but not Jesus praying to GOD. Jesus speaks of the Father so that classical trinitarians view the Father as the THOUGHT in the same way that our human spirit or mind is the "father" of out thoughts. The Son is pictured as the Word and the Spirit as the "breath of God." Jesus the Son spoke only what the Father told Him to speak. I doubt that we can ever grasp even how the ME controls our BRAIN to carry out actions such as SPEAKING. God often speaks to Himself and Swears by Himself. God sends the Lord which is the ruling force of God or DEITY. That appears less mysterious when we grasp that we DON'T GRASP how spirit or mind and flesh operate within us. In 1 Corinthians 2 Paul draws an equality:
Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. John 12:27
Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. John 12:28
The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. John 12:29
Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
John 12:30Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. John 12:31And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12:32
Ekballo (g1544) ek-bal'-lo; from 1537 and 906; to eject (lit. or fig.): - bring forth, cast (forth, out), drive (out), expel, leave, pluck (pull, take, thrust) out, put forth (out), send away (forth, out).
This he said, signifying what death he should die. John 12:33
The Holy SpiritThe purpose of the DOVE and the FATHER identifying the SON was to prove that the pagan MOTHER OF THE GODS does not rule the universe. Another site notes:
Is to God
What our spirit
Is to us.
Then Paul says, 'But we have the MIND of Christ.
Another aspect to look at is that both the ancient queen of heaven and the current, "visit" nations that are supposed to be under it's care. They both act as a type of mediator. Is this in keeping with what God's word says?
"For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony borne at the proper time." 1 Timothy 2:5-6
Note that there is only one God [theos: supreme Divinity] and one mediator [mesiteuo: intercessor]. That one intercessor is Christ Jesus; the Word of God mentions no other.
It is also interesting to note that the word man in this sense, refers to a single male individual who was to be our intercessor. This brings us back to Sophia, the female creator goddess.
In the Word, God gave us his name. It is "Yehovah" [Jehovah], which means Self Existent. It is not "Sophia", which in Greek means wisdom, and is never depicted as a proper noun, such as a name [even in Proverbs where wisdom is symbolically referred to as "her"].
"I am Jehovah, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, nor My praise to graven images." Is 42:8
In the Word, all human relationships of Yehovah are symbolical in the male sense. God symbolically refers to Himself as the husband, and Israel as His wife. In relationship to Christ and the Church, Christ is referred to as the "groom" and the church His bride. He also notes that a marriage between a man and a woman is symbolic of the relationship between Jesus [God] and the Church [Ephesians 5:22-32].
Now, if Sophia is a "female" creator, then we have a different symbolic relationship which does not parallel the true Word of God in any way. That symbolism would be the female creator has a bride [female]! This is symbolic of a lesbian relationship, which is an integral part of the worship of Sophia and in the feminist movement of WICCA.
Max Lucado and Rubel Shelly have promoted the notion of three members of the God Family. The result of their INCARNATIONAL WRITINGS, according to John Mark Hicks, is that they may deny that CHRIST CAME FULLY IN THE FLESH. Sorry, I have lost the resource from which I "borrowed" this good chart.
Dove - Pagan Mother Goddess symbol. Mary is CO-Savior, Mediatrix with Christ.
Prior to latter day apostles who preach the CORE GOSPEL of seven facts about Jesus claims that the rest of the Bible has been sifted through philosophy and the personal agenda of men like John. The result is the demand for a PERSON called THE HOLY SPIRIT who gives them direct guidance even when it demands that the Scriptures be turned upside down. See the Rubel Shelly and other Core Gospel statements.
Question: At His baptism we see Jesus the Son, the Father and the Holy Spirit. Doesn't this prove the Catholic trinity and the Church of Christ "Godhead family of three separated persons, a family, tribe, kith and kin, able to hold conferences"?Answer: The heresy reaches the terminal stage when we "worship" the names of the three family members in song.
See baby dedication and worship of the Holy Spirit in Hislop 4.1.
And thus, even in the Far West, Chalchivitlycue, the Mexican "goddess of the waters," and "mother" of all the regenerate, was represented as purging the new-born infant from original sin, and "bringing it anew into the world."
According to the Chaldean doctrine, Semiramis, the wife of Ninus or Nimrod, when exalted to divinity under the name of the Queen of Heaven, came, as we have seen, to be worshipped as Juno, the "Dove"--in other words, the Holy Spirit incarnate.
Now, the Holy Ghost was idolatrously worshipped in Babylon under the form of a "Dove." Under the same form, and with equal idolatry, the Holy Ghost is worshipped in Rome. When, therefore, we read, in opposition to every Scripture principle, that "the Holy Ghost suffered for us in baptism," surely it must now be manifest who is that Holy Ghost that is really intended.
It is no other than Semiramis, the very incarnation of lust and all uncleanness.
This is Lucifer worship.
For if detestable and god-hated men had the reputation of being gods, and the daughter of Derceto, Semiramis, a lascivious and blood-stained woman, was esteemed a Syria goddess; and if, on account of Derceto, the Syrians worship doves and Semiramis (for, a thing impossible, a woman was changed into a dove: the story is in Ctesias), what wonder if some should be called gods by their people on the ground of their rule and sovereignty (the Sibyl, of whom Plato also makes mention, says:-
- "It was the generation then the tenth,
- Of men endow'd with speech, since forth the flood
- Had burst upon the men of former times,
- And Kronos, Japetus, and Titan reigned,
- Whom men, of Ouranos and Gaïa
- Proclaimed the noblest sons, and named them so,
- Because of men endowed with gift of speech
- They were the first");
and others for their strength, as Heracles and Perseus; and others for their art, as Asclepius?
Those, therefore, to whom either the subjects gave honour or the rulers themselves [assumed it], obtained the name, some from fear, others from revenge. Thus Antinous, through the benevolence of your ancestors towards their subjects, came to be regarded as a god. But those who came after adopted the worship without examination.
"The Cretans always lie; for they, O king,
Have built a tomb to thee who art not dead."
The following tale is commonly told in Egypt concerning the oracle of Dodona in Greece, and that of Ammon in Libya. My informants on the point were the priests of Jupiter at Thebes.
They said "that two of the sacred women were once carried off from Thebes by the Phoenicians, and that the story went that one of them was sold into Libya, and the other into Greece, and these women were the first founders of the oracles in the two countries." On my inquiring how they came to know so exactly what became of the women, they answered, "that diligent search had been made after them at the time, but that it had not been found possible to discover where they were; afterwards, however, they received the information which they had given me.""Two black doves flew away from Egyptian Thebes, and while one directed its flight to Libya, the other came to them.
She alighted on an oak, and sitting there began to speak with a human voice,
and told them that on the spot where she was, there should henceforth be an oracle of Jove.
They understood the announcement to be from heaven, so they set to work at once and erected the shrine. The dove which flew to Libya bade the Libyans to establish there the oracle of Ammon."
This likewise is an oracle of Jupiter. The persons from whom I received these particulars were three priestesses of the Dodonaeans, the eldest Promeneia, the next Timarete, and the youngest Nicandra- what they said was confirmed by the other Dodonaeans who dwell around the temple.
My own opinion of these matters is as follows:- I think that, if it be true that the Phoenicians carried off the holy women, and sold them for slaves, the one into Libya and the other into Greece, or Pelasgia (as it was then called), this last must have been sold to the Thesprotians. Afterwards, while undergoing servitude in those parts, she built under a real oak a temple to Jupiter, her thoughts in her new abode reverting- as it was likely they would do, if she had been an attendant in a temple of Jupiter at Thebes- to that particular god.
Then, having acquired a knowledge of the Greek tongue, she set up an oracle. She also mentioned that her sister had been sold for a slave into Libya by the same persons as herself.
PEEPING AND MURMURING
The Dodonaeans called the women doves because they were foreigners, and seemed to them to make a noise like birds.
After a while the dove spoke with a human voice, because the woman, whose foreign talk had previously sounded to them like the chattering of a bird, acquired the power of speaking what they could understand.
For how can it be conceived possible that a dove should really speak with the voice of a man?Lastly, by calling the dove black the Dodonaeans indicated that the woman was an Egyptian.A further feature of Dodona was the "bronze," a large gong set vibrating at every "wind" blown by an attendant. This persistent ringing became a Greek proverb: Khalkos Dodones ("Brass of Dodona").
And certainly the character of the oracles at Thebes and Dodona is very similar. Besides this form of divination, the Greeks learnt also divination by means of victims from the Egyptians.
This was because a continuous talker has nothing to say.
Setting the Stage
In the early forties, H. Leo Boles and the Gospal Advocate advanced the notion that the Godhead was A FAMILY OF GODS. Like a tribe, kith and kin, able to stand side by side, face to face, hold committee meetings, and in the joke of Rubel Shelly have the "father" god and the "holy spirit" god ACE OUT the little "son" god so that he was tricked into suffering, dying and saving mankind.
This is coupled with the Lucado-Shelly etal INCARNATIONAL theories which, according to one of their friends, denies that Christ came fully in the flesh.
Of course, this defines the anti-christ and defends Gnosticism which is made certain by the sowing of discord with the ZOE "female instructing principle" to take over churches.
This has led to the OLD father god who has HAD his dispensation, the dispensation of the SON but he has HAD his dispensation; now we live in the dispensation of the HOLY SPIRIT god who abrogates all of the Bible except the CORE GOSPEL and enables us to construct our own NARRATIVE THEOLOGY even if we have to force the Bible to contradict itself.
An End-Time Heresy
Not even liberal scholars buy the Shelly-Lucado re-visioned Godhead: Paul Tillich says that to call God a "person" prior to the liberal 19th century would have been heresy. And,
"In his letter To Alabius: That there are not Three Gods, Gregory of Nyssa outlined his important doctrine of the inseparability or coinherence of the three divine persons or hypostases. One should not think of God splitting himself up into three parts; that was a grotesque and indeed blasphemous idea. God (1) expressed himself wholly and totally in each one of these three manifestations when he wished to reveal himself to the world... the Divine Nature is equally present in each phase of the operation... The three persons do not exist side by side in the divine world. (Armstrong, Karen, History of God, 116-117)
We are aware of no one in history prior to the snake handlers, H. Leo Boles, Max Lucado and Rubel Shelly who ever saw the Godhead separated into three persons. Of course, many ignorantly follow the blind leaders.
But, there is always a but! Didn't the three, members of the God Family show up at the baptism of Jesus? No.
Let's look at the passage for an introduction:
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: Matthew 3:16
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Mt.3:17
We should understand the fulfillment by understanding the prophecy: there never was a prophecy that a little man would move into the literal bodies of Jesus or others. Rather, the seven spirits represent the menorah or seven candlesticks of the Holy Place which typifies the church into which no praise team can enter to "inspirit" the audience.
A further peculiarity of Dodona was the "bronze," a large gong set vibrating at every breeze by a scourge held in the hand of a figure standing over it;the persistent ringing passed into a Greek proverbial phrase--Khalkos Dodones ("Brass of Dodona")--
for a continuous talker who has nothing to say. Britannica Members
"A famous oracle in Epi'ros, and the most ancient of Greece. It was dedicated to Zeus (Jupiter), and situate in the village of Dodna.
The tale is, that Jupiter presented his daughter Theb with two black pigeons which had the gift of human speech. Lemprière tells us that the Greek word peleiai (pigeons) means, in the dialect of the Eprots,
old women; so that the two black doves with human voice were two black or African women.
One went to Libya, in Africa, and founded the oracle of Jupiter Ammon; the other went to Eprus and founded the oracle of Dodna.
We are also told that plates of brass were suspended on the oak trees of Dodona, which being struck by thongs when the wind blew, gave various sounds from which the responses were concocted.
It appears that this suggested to the Greeks the phrase Kalkos Dod ns (brass of Dodona), meaning a babbler, or one who talks an infinite deal of nothing. Bartleby
These seven spirits represented by the "carrier pigeon" all relate to mental qualities because the Holy Spirit is the Mind of Christ manifested to the world in His Word:
AND there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: Isaiah 11:1
And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; Isaiah 11: 2
And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: Isaiah 11: 3
But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with
the rod of his mouth, and
with the breath (Spirit) of his lips shall he slay the wicked. Isaiah 11: 4
The expression IN WHOM is different from the very common statement WITH WHOM. God came into a body PREPARED FOR ME and therefore the meaning is:
"In whom I am well pleased to dwell."
We know that this is the fact based on all further evidence that the FATHER dwelled IN the SON. The "father" spoke and the "son" repeated those words. His proof as Son was faithfully reprocing the mind or spirit of the Father.
In whom ye also are builded together
for an habitation of God
through the Spirit. Ep.2:22
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. Ep.3:12
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Heb 4:14For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Heb 4:15
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Heb.4:16
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. Jn 14:12And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Jn 14:13
You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. Jn 14:14
At the same time, the clergy were "sons" of the Devil as their "father" because THEY SPOKE ON THEIR OWN.
Full invisible Deity
Holy SpiritThe next time you decide to blaspheme by worshiping the NAMES of three gods, remember that Father, Son and Holy Spirit are NOT NAMES.
This was what God planned to do from the beginning:
Your attitude should be the kind that was shown us by Jesus Christ, Phil 2:5LIVwho, though he was God, did not demand and cling to his rights as God, Phil 2:6
but laid aside his mighty power and glory, taking the disguise of a slave and becoming like men. Phil 2:7
And he humbled himself even further, going so far as actually to die a criminal's death on a cross. Phil 2:8
Therefore, we see the Father pleased to dwell in the Son.
And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. Lu.3:22
The expression IN WHOM is different from the very common statement WITH WHOM. God came into a body PREPARED FOR ME and therefore the meaning is:In whom I am well pleased to dwell.
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; Col.1:19
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Col 2:9
Therefore, the baptism does not prove that there are THREE GODS but that total Deity was pleased to dwell in the Man Jesus Christ.
Eudokeo (g2106) yoo-dok-eh'-o; from 2095 and 1380; to think well of, i.e. approve (an act); spec. to approbate (a person or thing): - think good, (be well) please (-d), be the good (have, take) pleasure, be willing.
Pleroma (g4138) play'-ro-mah; from 4137; repletion or completion, i.e. (subj.) what fills (as contents, supplement, copiousness, multitude), or (obj.) what is filled (as container, performance, period): - which is put in to fill up, piece that filled up, fulfilling, full, fulness.
Passages proving that the Godhead is not three separated persons:
Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. Jn.5:18
And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do alway those things that please him. Jn.8:29
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Jn.14:9
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. John 14:17
Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. Jn.16:32
And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. John 20:28
Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. Jn.20:29
Lucifer (LUCYfer) was the female who indwelled the serpent in the garden of eden. The nachash is not a snake but the hissing noises made by the serpent like the red-throated cobra which sprayed venom to blind the eyes. The word speaks of a soothsayer, enchanter or musical performer. She is the agent of the goddess worship who wholy seduced Eve but partook with Adam even without seducing him.
Because the beginning-time Lucifer-led worship honored the GODDESS and the end-time worship of Revelation 18 is of the Babylonian Harlot and all of the period in between is a battle with the ZOE or "female instructing principle," the baptism of Jesus is explained by Him:
And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. Matthew 3:15
Fulfill means to "cram full" or "fully preach" righteousness. Unrighteousness was always identified as prompted by the Lucifer (LUCYfer) principle or by effeminate males.
The universal pre-Christian period saw the supreme deity as a goddess. She is the Queen of Heaven in Jeremiah 44. The post Christian period sees Mary as the MOTHER OF GOD and therefore supreme.
It comes as no surprise that goddess worship in the effeminate singing of superstitious praise songs to enable the "father" god to do his job coincides with Sophia-Zoe worship where they as manifestations of Lucifer forced the dim witted "minor jehovahs" to form a musical worship team to worship Sophia-Zoe.
The Babylonian Trinity is the second proving MARK.
"The Babylonian trinity was 'the Eternal Father, the Spirit of God incarnate in a human mother, and a Divine Son, the fruit of that incarnation." Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, 2nd ed. (Neptune, N.J.: Loizeaux Bras., 1959), pp. 16-19.
Inanna (Ishtar, Ashtar, etc) usurped the supreme position in the ANE and in Gnosticism she is Sophia or Sophia Zoe. A TRIAD or family of gods is the universal MARK of paganism:
In Egypt, the Mother and the Child were worshipped under the names of Isis and Osiris. * In India, even to this day, as Isi and Iswara; ** in Asia, as Cybele and Deoius; in Pagan Rome, as Fortuna and Jupiter-puer, or Jupiter, the boy; in Greece, as Ceres, the Great Mother, with the babe at her breast, or as Irene, the goddess of Peace, with the boy Plutus in her arms; and even in Thibet, in China, and Japan, the Jesuit missionaries were astronished to find the counterpart of Madonna *** and her child as devoutly worshipped as in Papal Rome itself; Shing Moo, the Holy Mother in China, being represented with a child in her arms, and a glory around her, exactly as if a Roman Catholic artist had been employed to set her up. **** Resource.
Osiris and Isis were worshiped in Egypt by Israel and at Mount Sinai under Apis, the bull image, in musical idolatry.
The temptation fulfilled by the Catholic church was to DEIFY Mary as the Godess rather than her seed as prophesied in Genesis:
The Roman Church maintains that it was not so much the seed of the woman, as the woman herself, that was to bruise the head of the serpent. In defiance of all grammar, she renders the Divine denunciation against the serpent thus: "She shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise her heel."
The same was held by the ancient Babylonians, and symbolically represented in their temples.
In the uppermost story of the tower of Babel, or temple of Belus, Diodorus Siculus tells us there stood three images of the great divinities of Babylon; and one of these was of a woman grasping a serpent's head. Among the Greeks the same thing was symbolised; for Diana, whose real character was originally the same as that of the great Babylonian goddess, was represented as bearing in one of her hands a serpent deprived of its head. As time wore away, and the facts of Semiramis' history became obscured,
her son's birth was boldly declared to be miraculous: and therefore she was called "Alma Mater," * "the Virgin Mother."
Note: The Catholic Encycloped notes that their version is different from the Hebrew texts.
(2) The second point of difference between the Hebrew text and our version concerns the agent who is to inflict the mortal wound on the servant: our version agrees with the present Vulgate text in reading "she" (ipsa) which refers to the woman, while the Hebrew text reads hu' (autos, ipse) which refers to the seed of the woman.According to our version, and the Vulgate reading, the woman herself will win the victory;
according to the Hebrew text, she will be victorious through her seed. The Catholic Encyclopedia
Modern charismatic worship depends on the feminine or effeminate worship of the goddess.
Therefore, the symbolism at the baptism of Jesus is that the One True God is FATHER and His Word is SON. Signs, symbols and musical rituals are identified as the feminine wile the WORD is symbolic of the masculine.
Spirit is the Word of Christ (John 6:63) and is therefore masculine. If Jesus was begotten by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is a third member of the "god family" then the Holy Spirit is the FATHER of Jesus. However,
The Gospels record further evidence that the Holy Spirit is not a person. In Matthew 1:20, we read that Jesus was begotten by the Holy Spirit (Moffatt translation).
Yet Christ continually prayed to and addressed the Father, not the Holy Spirit, as His father (Matthew 10:32, 33; 11:25-27; 12:50; 15:13; 16:17, 27; 18:10, 35).
Never did He represent the Holy Spirit as His Father. Resource.
The Jewish leaders thought that John wore soft clothing of the catamite, a male prostitute in the service of kings. They tried to get Jesus to sing and dance the Dionysus, perverted song and dance while they piped. As with most priesthoods, the homosexual believed that they had a better access to the god or goddess. Therefore, it was always important for Jesus and the entire Bible represent God as masculine and His worship through in the synagogue devoted to the Word as masculine and all "priesthoods" were effeminate.
As propetic of what was to come, the dove on Jesus warned against the femine and the beginning (Lucifer) and end-time Babylonian Whore worship. See Hislop
Now in her, as the Tabernacle or Temple of God, not only all power, but all grace and goodness were believed to dwell. Every quality of gentleness and mercy was regarded as centred in her; and when death had closed her career, while she was fabled to have been deified and changed into a pigeon, * to express the celestial benignity of her nature, she was called by the name of "D'Iune," ** or "The Dove," or without the article, "Juno"--the name of the Roman "queen of heaven," which has the very same meaning; and under the form of a dove as well as her own, she was worshipped by the Babylonians.
* DIODORUS SIC. In connection with this the classical reader will remember the title of one of the fables in OVID'S Metamorphoses. "Semiramis into a pigeon."
** Dione, the name of the mother of Venus (Lucifer), and frequently applied to Venus herself, is evidently the same name as the above. Dione, as meaning Venus, is clearly applied by Ovid to the Babylonian goddess. (Fasti) Hislop
Nevertheless, all of the words of Jesus to the multitudes and the symbolism was in parable to hide the truth from the clergy.
The dove, the chosen symbol of this deified queen, is commonly represented with an olive branch in her mouth (Fig 25),
as she herself in her human form also is seen bearing the olive branch in her hand; and from this form of representing her, it is highly probable that she has derived the name by which she is commonly known, for "Z'emir-amit" means "The branch-bearer." *
* From Ze, "the" or "that," emir, "branch," and amit, "bearer," in the feminine. HESYCHIUS says that Semiramis is a name for a "wild pigeon." The above explanation of the original meaning of the name Semiramis, as referring to Noah's wild pigeon (for it was evidently a wild one, as the tame one would not have suited the experiment), may account for its application by the Greeks to any wild pigeon.
"At the fall of night a cloud descended and enveloped the Sons of Moses and all who belonged to them. They were hidden from their enemies, while their own way was illuminated by a pillar of fire. The cloud and the pillar vanished at break of day, and before the Sons of Moses lay a tract of land bordered by the sea on three sides. For their complete protection God made the river Sambation to flow on the fourth side.This river is full of sand and stones, and on the six working days of the week,
they tumble over each other with such vehemence that the crash and the roar are heard far and wide.
But on the Sabbath (56) the tumultuous river subsides into quiet. As a guard against trespassers on that day,
a column of cloud stretches along the whole length of the river, and none can approach the Sambation within three miles. Hedged in as they are, the Sons of Moses yet communicate with their brethren of the tribes of Naphtali, Gad, and Asher, who dwell near the banks of the Sambation. Carrier pigeons bear letters hither and thither.
Juno was connected with all aspects of the life of women, most particularly married life. As Juno Lucina, goddess of childbirth, she had a temple on the Esquiline from the 4th century BC. In her role as female comforter she assumed various descriptive names. Individualized, she became a female guardian angel; as every man had his genius (Genun), so every woman had her juno. Thus, she represented, in a sense, the female principle of life.
Genun is the Genii or Kabiri representing the Lamech (Ea in Babylon) family of Jubal, Jabal, Tubal-Cain and Naamah as the agents of Satan. Those seduced into rejecting God's word through Lucifer's music are those for whom God will come with ten thousands of His saints in The Book of Enoch.
From Egypt these sacred eggs can be distinctly traced to the banks of the Euphrates. The classic poets are full of the fable of the mystic egg of the Babylonians; and thus its tale is told by Hyginus, the Egyptian, the learned keeper of the Palatine library at Rome, in the time of Augustus, who was skilled in all the wisdom of his native country:
"An egg of wondrous size is said to have fallen from heaven into the river Euphrates. The fishes rolled it to the bank, where the doves having settled upon it, and hatched it, out came Venus, who afterwards was called the Syrian Goddess"--that is, Astarte.
The view of the trinity actually has the Holy Spirit "person" hoovering over the waters to "hatch" them out!
Semiramis, being deified as Astarte, came to be raised to the highest honours; and her change into a dove, as has been already shown, was evidently intended, when the distinction of sex had been blasphemously attributed to the Godhead, to identify her, under the name of the Mother of the gods, with that Divine Spirit, without whose agency no one can be born a child of God, and whose emblem, in the symbolical language of Scripture, was the Dove, as that of the Messiah was the Lamb.
The Wife of Jesus?When Jesus FULLY PREACHED BAPTISM at His Own baptism, he preached just like He always preached: in parables. This hides the truth from those who do not love truth.
The universal meaning of ancient paganism was a TRINITY OF GODS at the head of the pantheons. The supreme deity was originally a GODDESS, vile, perverted and a warrior.
Ea, the patron god of music, got drunk and let the female Inanna or Ishtar steal the ME: the supernatural power of mind control including "the authority of the eldership, the power of song and instrumental music and the power of licking the phallus." Ishtar/Tammuz were worshiped in the temple at Jerusalem and in your congregation. Ishtar as the sun was worshiped by the men bowing to the east:
"As the goddess of war and strife, she (Inanna/Ishtar) held the title Ninkur-ra-igi-ga, "the queen who eyes the highland" meaning that other lands feared her.Battle was called the "dance of Inanna, and she was at the very heart of it.
She was "the star of the battle-cry, who can make brothers who have lived together in harmony fight each other".
Therefore, the fully preached story of the Baptism of Jesus refutes the universal pagan TRIAD of Gods or GODDESSES.
The Infinite God of the Universe is not a pagan goddess such as Sophia-ZOE as the recipients of the honor of musical worship teams. God is FATHER and He manifests Himself to the human mind as a SON.
"So when the Cappadocians said that God was one ousia in three hypostases, they meant that God as he is in himself was One:there was only a single, divine self-consciousnesses.
But when he allows something of himself to be glimpsed by his creatures, he is three prospoi. (exterior expression on the face of what was on His mind.) (Armstrong, Karen, A History of God, p. 116)
100% of the time the Old Testament says that "God is One, There is no one beside me."
The story of the dove does not prove that the Spirit or Mind of Christ is either a bird or another "person." The voice was for the benefit of the listener to prove that Jesus was the One and Only visible image of the invisible God.
The "spirit" which would rest upon Jesus was not a little man resting on His head. Therefore, the symbolism cannot be interpreted to make the spirit a personal being. The spirit appeared like a dove (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:10; Luke 3:22; John 1:32) and as "tongues of fire" (Acts 2:3). Jesus compared it with "living water" (John 7:37-39).
Sure, the neuter "spirit" is personified as "she" often but the Spirit is the Spirit OF Christ and Paul in 1 Cor 2 identifies the Holy Spirit with the Mind of Christ. As Paul is declared evil for his witness against Eve it is important that Paul was inspired and knew that:
At first the sin of Eve may have been admitted in all its sinfulness (otherwise men generally would have been shocked, especially when the general conscience had been quickened through the zeal of Shem);but when a woman was to be deified, the shape that the mystic story came to assume shows that that sin was softened,
yea, that it changed its very character, and that by a perversion of the name given to Eve (ZOE in the LXX), as "the mother of all living ones," that is, all the regenerate,
she was glorified as the authoress of spiritual life, and, under the very name Rhea, was recognised as the mother of the gods.
Now, those who had the working of the Mystery of Iniquity did not find it very difficult to show that this name Rhea, originally appropriate to the mother of mankind, was hardly less appropriate for her who was the actual mother of the gods, that is, of all the deified mortals.
Rhea, in the active sense, signifies "the Gazing woman," but in the passive it signifies "The woman gazed at," that is, "The beauty," and thus, under one and the same term, the mother of mankind and the mother of the Pagan gods, that is, Semiramis, were amalgamated; insomcuh, that now, as is well known, Rhea is currently recognised as the "Mother of gods and men" (HESIOD, Theogon). It is not wonderful, therefore that the name Rhea is found applied to her, who, by the Assyrians, was worshipped in the very character of Astarte or Venus (Lucifer).
Therefore, modern churches teaching the direct operation of a holy spirit "person" who has superceded Jesus Christ cannot be a Christian church because its God does not confess that Christ came fully in the flesh.
We invite you to look at the anti-Christian views of Rubel Shelly and Max Lucado who by teaching a person called the holy spirit are then free to dismiss the Bible as "poorly remembed fragments put through the filter of philosophy to compose their "bible" for their own personal agendas.
The Catholic church as the Mother of Sophia-Zoe worship under Eve as the "female instructing principle" defines the ancient Babylonian triad. Mary is the Queen of Heaven, the Mother of God.
To contradict that, at the Baptism of Jesus, we see God as Father, Jesus Christ as Son and the Spirit OF God like a dove or carrier pigeon. This is why Jesus said: "My Words are Spirit and Life" (John 6:63).
The triad of persons is one of the clear MARKS of the beast where Sophia is know as the "serpent" and ZOE the mother of musical worship teams is the "beast" or female instructing principle.
The "another Comforter" which would be sent after Jesus gave up His visible presence is clearly identified by Jesus when He said and men cannot quote: "I will come to you." And when He was made known to Paul He said: "I am Jesus of Nazareth."
Christianity has to do with preaching a sacrificial Jesus as the image of God. It has nothing with charismatic, effeminate music and superstitious "praise singing" as if trying to make love to the "GODDESS" rather than giving out cups of cold water.
No, the Dove sits not on the head of the GODDESS as "children and effeminate ruling over you" but it sits on the head of the Father-Son Whose MARK is dedication to the Word as the only clear "worship" function in the church.
