Sara Barton The Song of Solomon

Professor Robert Briffault's introductory words to his article titled "Sex in Religion" published in the book "Sex in Civilization" (Garden City Publishing Co.). He makes the matter clear.

"In the tradition of modern Western civilization no two spheres stand more sharply opposed than that of religion and that of sex. The manifestations of the latter are in that tradition the type of sin, the head-fount of that evil and impurity with which the religious spirit cannot be brought into touch without defilement and dissolution. Between religion and eroticism the antithesis is scarcely less than between religion and atheism. Yet a glance at the various religions of the world, outside Christianity and one or two closely allied systems, a survey of the religious rites of lower phases of culture, shows that the antithesis does not exist. Those religions and those rites are, on the contrary, shot through and through with riotous sensuality; the manifestations of the sex instinct, instead of being accounted incompatible with the religious spirit, are associated with it in the closest manner; and religion, in those phases, is almost as much concerned with sex as with ethics or theology.

"The religious art of New Guinea, of Polynesia, of Indonesia, of Africa, of South America is as pornographic as that of the temples of India and of Japan. In earlier phases of culture, from that of primitive hunting tribes to the great agricultural societies out of which our own civilization has sprung, almost every ritual includes licentious dances and songs, the performance, actual or symbolic, of the sexual act, and often orgies of promiscuity. Although the erotic character of religious symbolism and ritual tends in general to become restrained in the highest phases of culture, it is displayed in the fullest manner in those cultural stages that have immediately preceded them, and is conspicuous in the ancient religions of the most advanced and highly civilized peoples.

"The elaborate mystic theology of Egypt was replete with sexual symbolism; hierodular [sacred] prostitution, ritual bestiality were among the observances of its cult. [Repeated at Mount Sinai as beyond Redemption] The religions of Babylonia, of Asia Minor, of the far-flung Semitic colonies, were notorious for the licentiousness of their rites: their priestesses were sacred prostitutes and prostitution was incumbent upon every woman. 'Nearly all peoples, except the Egyptians and the Greeks,' says Herodotus, 'have intercourse with women in the temples.' But the exceptions which he mentions are not borne out even by his own testimony. The religion of Greece, though obscenity and license were attenuated in its later phases, presented the same rites and the same features as those of Babylon and Syria; brothels were attached to the temples; phallic emblems, ritual obscenity, the conventionalized celebration of the sexual union remained to the last as features of its most sacred ceremonies. Even the austere and simple religion of Rome was associated in its most venerated native rites with ithyphallic images [showing the genitalia] of the gods, Fescennine [obscene] ribaldry, and symbolic coitus" (pp.31,32). This appraisal by Prof. Briffault is most accurate.  Unedited Comments or Denial Click Here.
  Your deceivers will not honor the text because you can fool most of the people most of the time and that is enough. A. Lincol.

Spiritual Terrorists struck Churches of Christ at the same time that Civil terrorists launched their attack upon Western Civilization and Christianity in General.  Pretending ignorance, the ECUMENICAL attack meaning that WE need your property so WE can bond with the World, may be unwitting dupes not knowing that the World, Kosmos, Ecumenical is the kingdom of the Devil. For instance, the launch pad was slandering Jesus as "Holy Spirit" and Paul by saying that he was teaching Unity in Diversity. That meant that "we have to destroy your diversity so that we can have unity."  However, as Judas didn't know the connection between PSALLO and SOP until he saw it, Paul makes the elders as the only pastor-teachers of the flock commanded to "teach that which has been taught." The cunning craftsmen or Sophists as speakers for hire, singers or instrument players are really LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

Isaiah 3 warned about the time when women and boys (effeminate) rule over you. These false call all of Scripture a lie when it outlaws women "ruling over you" in the same sense that men are silenced by Paul to Timothy.  Paul said that it was based on nature and on THE LAW.  These false teachers have no reason to know that Genesis does just that. However, the Eve story does not speak of godly women.  False teachers boast about USING WOMEN and the rare woman who is seduced by men intending to DAMAGE their reputation.  Such women and "wannabees" as musical worship leaders (an abomination) do not represent the majority of godly women who rise up and FLEE the abomination which desolates churches.

RECORDED HISTORY PROVES THAT UNFAITHFUL AND LAWLESS MEN SEDUCE MEN (COHORTS) OR WOMEN WITH THE INTENTION OF DAMAGING THEIR REPUTATION BECAUSE THEY ARE OF THE WORLD, KOSMOS, ECUMENICAL OR THE SONS OF THE DEVIL: JESUS SAID THAT YOU CAN DETECT THEM BECAUSE THEY VIOLATE DIRECT COMMANDS AND "SPEAK ON THEIR OWN." THE MARK IS SO ABSOLUTE THAT THE COMMAND FROM THE WILDERNESS ONWARD WAS TO PREACH THE WORD BY READING THE WORD IN A ONCE-EACH PERIOD OF REST FROM RELIGIONISTS. HE GAVE NO DOLE FOR ANYONE BEYOND THE READER UNLESS THEY GO AND TEACH WHAT JESUS COMMANDED TO BE TAUGHT AND OBSERVED: THEY THEIR "LIVING" IS A DAILY DOLE OF FOOD.

-[3. 8. 1 The form of diction should be neither metrical nor without rhythm. If it is metrical, it lacks persuasiveness, for it appears artificial, and at the same time it distracts the hearer's attention, since it sets him on the watch for the recurrence of such and such a cadence.

Speaking Of Rick Atchley: "You are going to find a lot of a cappella churches that are gonna' start saying Sunday morning we are going to be a cappella, but after that, we are going to let a lot of freedom reign, which is pretty much what we do at Richland Hills.  You walk into our youth center Sunday morning or Wednesday night: and I'm telling you; Christian rock an' roll is just blasting" (p. 9).

Basically, the idea is that the lives of rock stars are in their bigger part those three things: having sex (with fans), using drugs (often illegal ones), and performing (this is what the rock and roll stands for).

This is an appropriate response to God if the church is on that crest.
It is inappropriate if it is whipped up or if the focal point is on the dance rather than on true jubilation in the Lord.

Expression then moves to a zenith, a climatic point, not unlike physical lovemaking (doesn't Solomon use the same analogy in the Song of Songs?). We have expressed what is in our hearts and minds and bodies,

“Not surprisingly, most Israelites declined the prophet’s invitation to enter into a dialog with Yahweh.  They preferred a less demanding religion of cultic observance either in the Jerusalem Temple or in the old fertility cults of Canaan.  This continues to  be the case: the religion of compassion is followed only by a minority; most religious people are content with decorous worship in synagogue, church, temple and mosque.  The ancient Canaanite religions were still flourishing in Israel... the Israelites were still taking part in fertility rites and sacred sex there, as we see in the oracles of the prophet Hosea, Amos’ contemporary.” (Armstrong, Karen, A History of God, p. 47).

Laura Buffington SEX and SALVATION: the Song of Solomon or the Hieros Gamos.

Religious Sex: The religion of the Goddess, wherever it was practiced throughout history, has always been sex positive. This is shown in The Priestess , which depicts part of the rituals of the ancient Egyptian religions of Aset (Isis) and Hathor, that are practice today in the Rituals of The Goddesses. But the most famous of the ancient rituals is the Hieros Gamos, or Sacred marriage ritual. Records of this ceremony have been dated as far back as early Sumerian, about 5500 years ago. In this ritual the high priestess acting as avatar of The Goddess had sex with the ruler of the country to show the Goddess's acceptance him as ruler and caretaker of her people. Here is part of the ceremony as translated from an ancient Sumerian poem.

That date is close to the B.C. 4000 where Moses inverts the Sumerian myths to warn fallen Israel that God had abandoned them conditionally back to their roots because of Instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted idolatry at Mount Sinai led by the women.

In the Pre postmodern era the persona of males singing and playing instruments was that they were drunk, perverted or just mocking:

"The trained musicians which eventually appear around the time of David and Solomon mark a distinctive change in the history of Jewish music. Before this time much of the music was made by women." (Zondervan Pict., Music p. 313).

"Before the establishment of the kingdom under Saul, it was the women who, as in every young civilization, played a major part in the performance of music. Such figures as Miriam, Deborah, Jephtha's daughter, and the women hailing the young hero David have become almost archetypes of female musicians. Characteristic of all these cases is the familiar picture of a female chorus, dancing and singing, accompanied by frenzied drum-beating. This is the scene known to the entire Near East, and not even the severe rule of Islam could wholly suppress this age-old practice." (Int Dict of the Bible, Music, p. 457).

Of David who changed the laws and went naked with the camp follower women.

Paul silenced both male and female SO THAT WE MIGHT ALL BE SAFE AND COME TO A KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. The Truth is the Word, Logos or Regulative principle and outlaws anything beyond PREACHING the Word by READING the Word in the pattern of a ONCE A WEEK SCHOOL OF CHRIST.

The BEAST or ZOE known as the beast and female teaching principle is the word Therion in Revelation.  This identifies the Muses (locusts) as Apollon's Worship team and is "A New Style of Music or Satyric (cappella) Drama.

As goddess of Venus [Lucifer, Zoe, Eve by feminists], delighting in bodily love, Ishtar was the protectress of prostitutes and the patroness of the alehouse. Part of her cult worship probably included temple prostitution, and her cult centre, Erech, was a city filled with courtesans and harlots. Her popularity was universal in the ancient Middle East, and in many centres of worship she probably subsumed numerous local goddesses. In later myth she was known as Queen of the Universe, taking on the powers of An, Enlil, and Enki. [Jer. 44:25 ]

Jer 44:18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.

"She is called Dat ba'thani, Lady of the Serpent. Another name of ´Asherah in the first millennium BCE is Chawat, which is Hawah in Hebrew and Eve in English. Her full title is Rabat Chawat ´Elat, Great Lady Eve the Goddess, and is associated with the serpent. Thus, Chawa/ Eve (ZOE) is probably a form of´Asherah as a Serpent Goddess. As a snake goddess, She was also represented by bronze serpent forms, examples of which have been found in archaeological excavations in the Levant. In fact the Nehush-tan, literally the Bronze Serpent which is associated with Moses, is much more likely an emblem of Asherah. It too was removed from the Jerusalem temple the same time as the asherah objects.

For the Bible Student, Galatians 3:28 uses the word NEITHER and not BOTH as the "Doctors of the law take away the key to knowledge." Godly women should not follow in the steps of Scribes and Pharisees Jesus called hypocrites. In Ezekiel 33 God marked hypocrites as "performance preachers for hire, singers or instrument players." This was the mark of those neither intending to teach or obey "that which is written for or LEARNING."  An assembly of Christ has that as a one-piece pattern led by vocational elders and deacons with A holy spirit which means that they teach the Word (Regulative Principle) which has been taught.

Jesus Christ now as Holy Spirit promised to guide Paul who was qualified to speak because he was allowed to SEE and HEAR the Spirit who still called Himself "Jesus of Nazareth." Contrary to the apostate claim of "unity in diversity" Paul taught that the elders were the Pastor-Teachers commanded to teach that which had been taught. Job One was to remove the cunning craftsmen or Sophists. The Sophists or Wise God HIDES from are self-authoring (authentia) speakers, singers, instrument players or actors.  Paul said that these are the MARKS of those LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

Women were silenced because they uniquely claimed to reveal the "gods" in the midst of music-induced sexual rituals. A Musical Instrument is "a machine for doing hard work" and as organon is related to the ORGIA or Orgy which will not break out if those praying observe the same rule of SILENCE imposed on women but rarely seen in straight males.

All of the silence passages apply to those who deny that there is ONE GOD the Father and one mediator (in song and sermon) between God and man, the MAN Christ Jesus. 

Music and trinity is a product of the original triple goddess.  Only very rarely were males (before David) ever caught engaged in self-exhibition especially singing and playing instruments which was a key way to induce Koma or sorcery of the Muses and instrument players in Revelation 18 as ministers of the Babylonian Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17)

That is how the clergy MOCKED Jesus with music and taunts to fulfill the meaning of music to "Make the Lambs Dumb before the Slaughter."  Listening to professional Theologians preaching music and ANTI-Regulative Principle (Logos): they are to be despised and mocked for pretending to speak for the One God Almighty.

In Romans 14 we know that Paul silenced the Orphics, Dionysiacs and the Pythagoreans. Men like Leonard C. Allen and all of the abominations of "worship teams to lead you into the presence of God" claim that God is ECSTATIC or out of His Mind. Iamblichus.3.7.Art of Divination My File

He did not acquiesce in the doctrines of the earlier New Platonists, Porphyrius and Plotinus, who regarded the perception and comprehension of the Deity, by means of ecstasies, as the object of all philosophy; but his opinion was that man could be brought into direct communion with the Deity through the medium of theurgic rites and ceremonies, whence he attached particular importance to mysteries, initiations, and the like.
20. Greek, mania, rage, madness, entheasm, religious excitement, or rapture. The term is used here to denote the rapture incident upon being possessed by asuperior power. Plato remarks in the Phaidros: "There are two kinds: one arising from human diseases and the other by a digression from fixed habits."

He subdivides the divine mania or entheasm into four kinds, and assigns
........... the mantic or prophetic inspiration to
Apollon,
....... ....mystic inspiration to Dionysos,
.... .......poetic inspiration to the Muses, [Apollyon's Worship Team: prostitutes] 
..... ......and the passion of love to Aphrodite.

21. Some exhibition of this kind is described by the Apostle Paul in the first Epistle to the Corinthians. "If," says he, "the whole assembly come together to the same place and all prattle in tongues, and common men should come in, or unbelievers, will they not say that you are raving?"

Hence he counsels that only two or three should speak in turn, and one interpret; but if nobody present is capable of this, they should keep silence, and speak only to themselves and to God:

"for not of tumult is he a god, but of tranquillity." (Ovid; Fasti IV,
"The attendants
beat the brass, and the hoarse-sounding hides. Cymbals they strike in place of helmets, tambourines for the shields; the pipe yielded its Phrygian notes.")

22. The Korybantes are variously described. Their cult was identified or closely allied to that of the Kabeirian divinities, and that of the Great Mother. It was celebrated in the islands of the Aegean Sea and in Phygia. Music, dancing, processions, and ecstatic frenzy were characteristics.

Thou seemest to think that those who are enrapt by the Mother of the gods are males, for thou callest them, accordingly, "Metrizontes"; yet that is not true, for the "Metrizontesæ" are chiefly women. A very few, however, are males, and such as may be more DELICATE. This enthusiasm has a power that is both life-engendering and perfective, in which respect it differs from every other form of frenzy.

Zoe is EVE or Evah in feminine or effeminate worship so they have to slander Paul.  Evah means an abomination because she is the MEDIATRIX as the dirty Muses were called the SHEPHERDS.  There is a mother behind every progressive

Moses refuted the Sumerian Mother of the Gods created by the Elohim.  When the Lord-God or Jehovah-Elohim began to create the story changes. Paul said that Eve was wholly seduced in a sexual sense and that Cain was "Of that wicked one."

Theophilus.Autolycus.II.html
This Eve, on account of her having been in the beginning deceived by the serpent, and become the author of sin, the wicked demon, who also is called Satan, who then spoke to her through the serpent, and who works even to this day in those men that are possessed by him, invokes as Eve.  And he is called "demon" and "dragon," on account of his revolting from God. For at first he was an angel. And concerning his history there is a great deal to be said; wherefore I at present omit the relation of it, for I have also given an account of him in another place.

The word "abomination" is also key to understanding the context. In Hebrew, the word "to 'evah," (abomination) is almost invariably linked to idolatry. In the passages from which both verses are taken, God tells Moses to tell the people not to follow the idolatrous practices of the people around them, people who sacrificed their children to Molech, or who masturbated into the fire to offer their semen to Molech, for example. Chapter 20 starts off with the same warning.

"To 'evah" also means "something which is ritually unclean," not something evil in itself, like rape or theft. Eating pork or having sex during menstruation are ritually unclean.

The Pagan women worshiping Bacchus or Dionysus (the wineskins god) believed that Eve was the Mediatrix and worthy to be worshipped.  This is also the Catholic trinity replacing the Spirit or Mother with Mary now worshipped in feminist theology.

H. Bamford Parkes:  'Certain members of a tribe, marked out either by unusual skills or by some emotional abnormality, usually became particularly adept at these operations, and gradually assumed specialized functions. Released from the duty of hunting [as clergy], and concentrating on the practice of magic, the shaman, sorcerer, or medicine man was the world's first professional."

"The development both of religion and of the arts can be traced back in a continuous line to the hunting era. The group ritual of the primeval tribesmen were the origin not only of all religious ceremonial, but also of the drama and of poetry and music, while magic gave birth to the visual arts." (Parkes, p. 30). "Awed by the mysteries of his own spirit no less than by those of nature, primitive man was likely to attribute to divine influence any abnormal emotional state, whether above or below the usual level. Medicine men customarily went into states of trance in which they were believed to be in communication with the gods,

C. Leonard Allen says that God is ECSTATIC or out of His Mind.

and many tribes supposed lunatics and sexual deviants to be divinely possessed.

In most early societies, moreover, men evolved techniques for deliberately inducing the abnormal forms of consciousness in which they supposed themselves to achieve union with divine power, sometimes by the use of drugs and other physiological stimuli, sometimes by hypnotic dances and music.

The Message of Cain and Abel: Eve was wholly seduced and Cain was OF that wicked one.

"Pastoral religion, moreover, remained relatively free from degrading rituals. Worshiping chiefly divinities of the sky and the weather, and seeing them definitely in masculine forms, pastoral peoples did not usually deify the processes of sexual reproduction or regard human sacrifice as more than an extreme and unusual expedient; and their gods, being nomadic rather than fixed to particular localities, and not normally represented by means of images, could be universalized and spiritualized more easily than the peasant deities." (Parkes, p. 48).

The Jews as the PATTERN for the Jacob-Cursed and God-abandoned Levites DID believe in human sacrifices and that is clear in the lying about music to "teach our youth to leave our movement."


Godly women were warned to be SAFE in childbearing because the female "ministers" in pagan temples exposed or gave their children up for human sacrifice.  Neither the HOLOCAUST of innocent animals or children was commanded by God and we would like to think that the clergy of the WORLD ORDER were just Biblically and ethically illiterate. However, In Ephesians 4 the cunning craftsmen or Sophists who were self-authoring preachers, singers, instrument players or any clergy and Jesus as Holy Spirit led Paul to say that THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  That is the unity in diversity lie.  Of those who "speak on their own" instead of what Jesus commanded to be taught are said by Him to be sons of the devil.

The "Authority" exercised in religionism--as opposed to the Christian School--is the Greek
authent-ēs

Again, women were always USED in ancient and modern paganism and hordes of aborted children testify to those women and their offspring were not SAFE in childbearing.  Male or female who rejects the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle exercises their OWN self-will and is a soul murderer.

Scripture almost always is the Antithesis of the pagan cosmology and religion:  If you are ignorant of where Scripture points you can never "go there" and that is why the command is to PREACH the Word (regulative principle) by READING it. Paul warned against "Old Wive's Tales and JEWISH FABLES."  These are the religions of the WORLD, Kosmos, Ecumenical or the kingdom of the Devil. Jesus doesn't pray for those OF the World or the Earth-Born among whom a little flock of Lost-Spirits can be found only by those who GO into all the "earth" and preach the Word.

Phil.391pambōti Ga mater autou Dios”, Solon fr. 36mētēr megistē daimonōn Olumpiōn”. As wife of Uranus she was in strict Hesiodean mythology the mother of the Titans and Cronos; but the simple “theōn” is no doubt meant to include all the gods.

Soph. Phil. 391 Chorus
Goddess of the hills, Earth all-nourishing, mother of Zeus himself, you through whose realm the great Pactolus [395] rolls golden sands! There, there also, dread Mother, I called upon your name, when all the insults of the Atreids landed upon this man, when they handed over his father's armor, that sublime marvel, [400] to the son of Laertes. Hear it, blessed queen, who rides on bull-slaughtering lions!

JEANENE P. REESE  In the Genesis account God made the woman to be a helper/partner to the man. Yet God commanded Adam to leave father and mother and cleave to his wife (2:24),   a directive that “counteracts a patriarchal culture, which would command the wife instead.” 5 Evans notes that the word “cleave” used in Gen 2:24 “is used almost universally for a WEAKER cleaving to a stronger.
    
Adam became subject to the soil from which he had been taken.
     Eve became subject to Adam from whom she had been taken. .

She says that SATAN instead of God is the Guilty Party: . .

As a result of Satan’s work man was now master over woman,
just as the MOTHER-ground was now master over
man.

Apollod. 1.1.1
Sky was the first who ruled over the whole world.1 And having wedded Earth, he begat first the Hundred-handed, as they are named: Briareus, Gyes, Cottus, who were unsurpassed in size and might, each of them having a hundred hands and fifty heads.

1 According to Hesiod (Hes. Th. 126ff.), Sky (Uranus) was a son of Earth (Gaia), but afterwards lay with his own mother and had by her Cronus, the giants, the Cyclopes, and so forth


Gen. 6:4 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.

God turned the Jews over to worship the starry host because of instrumental-trinitarian-perverted "PLAY" at Mount Sinai.  Solomon was the guy who spend more time on his pagan wives and live-ins than he did on building the Temple which God had not Commanded.  This "song" defines the Hieros Gamos was consistent with God sentencing the Jews to Babylon.  The Temple was a Ziggurat and the rituals were that to WHICH God had aboned them to to justify women in DOMINANT roles over a COMMUNITY.   The only Spiritual Covenant made with Abraham by God in Christ was never changed by God's Abandonment of Israel to Worship The Starry Host.  The New Covenant is with the Houses of people excluding Priests or Levites.

The universal command is to READ or SPEAK that which is written for our learning. That excludes human imagination--only evil continually--because private interpretation or further expounding repudiates the Spirit OF Christ in the prophets and Apostles and rejects the Holy Spirit Christ left for us as a written memory.

The Song of Solomon is the Pattern of the Courtship of Inanna and Demuzi.

The hieros gamos as a royal ritual is the creation of early city-states built on the wealth provided by agriculture [tithes]. Far from putting an end to the “primitive” village cults, they expanded and stylized them with forms that were derived from, and were variations of, earlier symbolism. One of these is the sexual union of the king and a priestess as an episode in the lengthy Babylonian Akitu (New Year) festival. The model for this rite is already given in Sumerian myths and temple customs...An early prototype of the ritual is the Sumerian story of the goddess Inanna and her relation to Dumuzi, the shepherd boy with whom the supreme, all – powerful goddess fell in love.  See Tammuz from Ezekiel 8 rampant in Rome and silenced in Romans 14.

AZAZEL ...There have been efforts to compare the ritual of the goat to several customs of the ancient world. In Babylonia, for instance, it was customary on the festival of Akitu (the New Year), to give a goat as a substitute for a human being to Ereshkigal (the goddess of the abyss). In an Akkadian magical inscription from the city of Assur which deals with the cure for a man who is unable to eat and drink, it is prescribed that a goat should be tied to his bed and that thus the sickness will pass to the goat. On the following morning, the goat is to be taken to the desert and decapitated. Its flesh is then cooked and put in a pit together with honey and oil, perhaps as an offering to the demons....[there was a] widespread belief that the wilderness was the habitat of demons...The demonic identification would indicate that the original purpose of the ritual was to get rid of the evil by banishing it to its original source... in the First Book of Enoch...the angel Raphael is commanded to "bind the hands and feet of Azazel and cast him into the darkness. Make an opening to the wilderness which is in Dudael and cast him there. Put upon him hard sharp rocks" (10:4–5). Dudael is the Bet Hadudo (or Bet Harudo) which is mentioned in the Mishnah (Yoma 6:8) and the association is certainly with the cliff from which the goat was cast. (Encyclopaedia Judaica)

The Scape Goat is also capella.

See Ezekiel 8: You can read all about it in Ezekiel and in the Roman Account which Romans 14 silences and defines the pattern in Romans 15 as "using one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our LEARNING." That is always the ONE PIECE PATTERN.

Innana's Descent into the Netherworld: From Babylon Recycled in Revelation 17f

Paul warned about the GALLI or the emasclated priests of the Mother Goddess. He also used the Rising up to PLAY as a PATTERN in 1 Corinthians 10 and in:

Rom. 10:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness,
        and going about to establish their own righteousness,
        have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Rom. 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
Rom. 10:5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law,
        That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
Rom. 10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise,
        Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Rom. 10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
Rom. 10:8 But what saith it? The WORD (Regulative principle] is nigh thee,
        even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 

Paul to Timothy silenced both male and female so that "all might be SAFE come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH." Men were to BE holy and peaceful (quiet) because they used women to bring on orge or an orgy. Women were to be silent BECAUSE they exercised authority or AUTHENTIA which means self-welled and used or were used to exercise sexual authority over men in order to pick their pockets of men of their children's food money.  The Spirit OF Christ (God) breathed into the prophets outlawed giving our money for that which was not food. He used the concept of Word (regulative principle) being like RAIN and not to be sold by Rain Makers claiming to speak for a "god."

Those who seduce young women into wanting to be the defacto ruler are ignorant of the fact that a Preacher (Kerusso) or Elder (Presbyter) is defined as a HERALD to takes a message to those who have not yet received it. Paul set the PATTERN of not doing what others had already done.

The limits set on females is based on the fact that anyone who follows the Great Commission is commanded to GO: they are permitted a staff to beat off thieves and a bag to collect surplus of FOOD which is the meaning of Paul's LIVING from the Gospel. A local Reading Assembly HAS no funds and no authority to collect funds. The temple and sacrificial system was not commanded but IMPOSED. Even so in the national or Goyim religion the staff was given a daily dole of food and only in rare rotating duty.  Religious operatives always had an occupation and tithes and offerings never paid the house rent.

As a result of the Church of Christ (the Rock) or synagogue defined in the wilderness both Jew and Gentile were wise unto salvation because they attended the Synagogue-Ekklesia:

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that PREACH him, being READ in the synagogues every sabbath day.

The one Reading Assembly ONCE a week on the REST day was the God-ordained pattern and anything beyond what Scripture and the Campbells called A School of Christ imposes the laded burden and is a legalistic cult.

THAT PATTERN NEVER CHANGED. THE RULERS SCRIBES AND PHARISEES WERE IGNORANT BECAUSE....

Jesus defined Holy Scripture which prophesied of Him. He fulfilled or Certified ONLY those prophecies. Peter and other eye-- and ear--witnesses left US a Memory and said that this was not to be "private interpreted" or further expounded.   Paul denied that he corrupted the Word which word means adultery or "selling learning at retail" after Jesus supplied all that is necessary.

Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their RULERS,
        because they knew him not,
        nor yet the voices of the PROPHETS
        which are READ every sabbath day,
        they have fulfilled them in condemning him

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Luke 4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was,
        he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to READ.
Acts 13:15 And after the READING of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying,
            Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.

Isn't there SOMETHING OUTWARDLY WRONG?

According to the Book of Enoch and similar documents, God will come with ten thousands of His Saints to execute judgment. Enoch makes the point that even dumb TREES and animals obey the LAWS of God. However, Satan came into Genun (Jubal) in his youth and taught him how to make musical instruments which, he claimed, actually housed the devils. When you STRUCK or WHACKED a string and really ground it into bits (psallo) the demons spoke FROM WITHIN the instruments.

The people were evil BECAUSE they did not understand that spiritual worship related only to EDUCATION.

Isaiah 1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward

Isaiah 1:8  And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city

Isaiah 1: 9 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

Is. 1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye RULERS of Sodom;
        give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

Rev. 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city,
which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified

The Spirit OF Christ contradicts. God said nothing about their mental attutude:

Is. 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD:
        I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts;
        and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

The Synagogue or Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness excluded anything not REST, READING OR REHEARSING the Word. Later the synagogue QUARANTINED everyone from the "worship centers" on the Sabbath as Sun Worshipers to whom God abandoned the Civil-Military-Clergy. ALL religionism--outlawed by the School of the Word--bound their religion to sexuality.. Whatever is right or wrong the EVE character derives from Babylon and Moses wrote only after the few bad females led to Rising up (against) in PLAY which included playing on instruments and playing with one another. Paul defines this in Romans 1 and in 1 Corinthians 10 and defined it as the worship of the devils.

Paul warned that Eve was wholly seduced and that Cain was OF that wicked one.  Paul understood that women especially looked to EVE (Zoe, Mary) as THEIR Mediatrix. Hippolytus book V-Satan worship.  This is knowledge which you cannot BUY at a school of Theology which means "the study of Apollon."

Carroll D. Osburn "Feminist hermeneutics stands over against patriarchal hermeneutics" its goal achieved

"by small, often unnoticed acts of subversion. Numerous such incremental changes, like erosion, will eventually bring down the fortress " ( p. 32).

Sara Barton: The Jesus Creed and Our Sexual Witness

Sara is the University Chaplain at Pepperdine University, where she pastors, preaches, and leads a delightful and capable staff of ministers.

  1. The Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness was a day of REST which includes -Sabba^t-ismos , ho, A.a keeping of days of rest, Ep. Hebr.4.9  -skholē , , A.leisure, rest, ease, --skholas-tērion , to, A. place for passing leisurein, Plu.Luc.42, Moschio ap.Ath.5.207e.
    All decent and Civil Society understand that pagan "worship"
    Plu.Luc.42, In these ways, then, Lucullus used his wealth wantonly, as though it were in very truth a Barbarian prisoner-of-war.  42. But what he did in the establishment of a library deserves warm praise. He got together many books, and they were well written, and his use of them was more honourable to him than his acquisition of them. His libraries were thrown open to all, and the cloisters surrounding them, and the study-rooms, were accessible without restriction to the Greeks, who constantly repaired thither as to an hostelry of the Muses, and spent the day with one another, in glad escape from their other occupations.
  2. Paul commanded the men to pray that they might not allow wrath, orge or an orgy to break out.  All but the one commanded to PREACH by READING the Word were to be  quiet "so that all might be SAFE and come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH, The Logos or The Regulative Principle.
    Jesus Died to Silence ALL Clergy and gave them NO FUNDING
    -Plut. De Super. 3 Dear soothing balm of sleep to help my ill, How sweet thy coming in mine hour of need.  [Euripides, Orestes, 211-12] Superstition does not give one a right to say this; [p. 461] for superstition alone makes no truce with sleep, and never gives the soul a chance to recover its breath and courage by putting aside its bitter and despondent notions regarding God ; but, as it were in the place of torment of the impious, so in the sleep of the superstitious their malady calls up fearful images
  3. The Biblical-Christian certainty is that Paul outlaws women as Pastor-Teachers. His reasons are based on Scripture which is always the antithesis of pagan religious-sexual religions [authentia or sexual authority] such as the Song of Solomon.  Musical sounds were the major means of dissociating the mind.
  4. The New Covenant is made with the "houses" Luke 2:32 A LIGHT for revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of your people [laou] Israel
    la_os 3. people assembled, especially. in the Ecclesia, phrase akouete leō hear O people!
    4. in LXX, of the people, as Opposite of priests and Levites, 1 Es.5.46; Jews opposite Gentiles but Paul denied any racial meaning.
    Especially in the Ecclesia, “hai stikhes tōn laōnId.Eq.163: hence the phrase akouete leō hear O people!—
  5. Blasphemy is saying that the WORD (Regulative Principle) says something it REFUTES.
  6. You cannot be a Christian or Disciple or Student OF Christ without teaching that which is recorded in the Prophets and Apostles.
  7. Not to worry: Jesus ordained the WAY that is called a SECT and you cannot speak the WORD without suffering the same fate Jesus suffered.
  8. Neither Jesus nor His LITTLE FLOCK of lost spirits are OF the World.
  9. The World or Kosmos is the ECUMENICAL or kingdom of the Devil.
  10. Corrupting the Word or selling learning at retail is defined by Paul and civil Greek Society as adultery.
  11. God sends strong delusions to those who despise the LOGOS or Regulative Principle and Lying Wonders are religious observations to which the Kingdom does not come.
  12. The only personified SPIRIT is Apollon as the leader of the muses and sexual rituals.
  13. Theology is the study of Apollon

IN ALL OF THE SILENCE PASSAGES THE UNIQUELY FEMALE RELIGIOUS HISTORY

1Cor. 14:36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
1Cor. 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual,
        let him acknowledge that the things
        that I WRITE unto you are the commandments of the Lord.
1Cor. 14:38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.

First: A church of Christ is a School of the WORD, Logos or Regulative principle. 
        It is defined as The Church of Christ (the Rock) both inclusively and exclusively.  It's STAFF over groups as small as ten families is a senior male, non-mercinary who PREACHED the WORD (only) by READING that which was supplied by a higher authority. Then and now MINISTERS were vocational servants who never LEADS.

Second: The Spirit OF Christ (Long before Jesus) Prophesied of Messiah's REST both INCLUSIVELY and EXCLUSIVELY.

Third: Jesus died to fulfill SCRIPTURE defined as prophecies concerning Him.

Fourth
: The MAN Jesus is defined as the only MEDIATOR which excludes women as mediators in song and sermon so that we might all be SAFE and come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH or LOGOS which excludes rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting.

Peter and others as Eye-- and Ear-- witnesses left us a "memory" of what Jesus SPOKE by the Spirit (Breath) of God the only Father-Teacher. 

Fifth: A Church of Christ is an ekklesia-synagogue rests (like Sabbath) whose purpose is SKHOLE.  This is the antithesis of Church as "ritual ritual" named after Circe the holy harlot buried in sight of Patmos.  She uses "lusted after fruits" (Same as Amos 8) as emasculated priests (Galatians 5) and witchcraft.

Six: 1 Timothy 2 silences both male and female:
        So that we might be SAFE from witchcraft and being emasculated
        So that we might all come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH (Regulative Principle)

Jesus as "Holy Spirit" let Paul SEE and hear HIM to give him the authority to TEACH. Once "that which is written for our learning" there is no more teaching OVER anyone.  All of the masculine commands are to READ or SPEAK only the text.

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time
        hath in every city
        them that PREACH him,
        being READ in the synagogues every sabbath day. 

Scripture affirms that Jesus as now Holy Spirit sppeared and spoke to Paul and promised to guid Him into all truth in the same sense that the original Apostles were inspired.

If this is true and a Christian has no option and you dispute Scripture then this is defiined as BLASPHEMY.

           1Tim. 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to TEACH, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

"Michael Clycas, the Byzantine historiographer, uses this verb to describe the woman, 'who make sexual advances to men and fornicate as much as they please without arousing their husband's jealous.'" (Charles Trombly, Who Said Women Can't Teach, p. 176)

Ephesus was famous for its shrine of Diana, where thousands of sacred prostitutes believed fornication

brought believers into contact with deity
in much the say way the Gnostics used
authentia to bind the flesh and the divine together.
When these owm converted to Christianity they had to
unlearn these pagan practices.' Trombley, p. 177)

A pro-feminist author nevertheless confesses: "By thrusting themselves forward as the originators or inspirers of religious hymns or creative drama, the woman would be exercising sexual authority. This has nothing to do with "authority to speak" because non-inspired men not "senior male husbands" have no more authority.

"Ephesus was famous for its shrine of Diana, where thousands of sacred prostitutes believed fornication brought believers into contact with deity in much the same way the Gnostics used authentia (authority) to bind the flesh and the divine together. When these women converted to Christianity they had to unlearn these pagan practices. 'Virtually without exception,

female teachers among the Greeks were courtesans, such as Aspasia, who numbered Socrates and Pericles among her students. Active in every major school of philosophy,

these hetairai made it evident in the course of their lectures that they were available afterwards for a second occupation.

But the Bible teaches that to seduce men in such a manner was indeed to lead them to slaughter and the halls of death (cf. Prov. 2:18; 5:5; 6:27; 9:18).

The verb authentein is thus peculiarly apt to describe both the erotic and murderous." (Trombley, Who Says Women Can't Teach, p. 177).

"dionysus's worship is thus established by the simple means of killing the opposition. It has been suggested that every tragic hero who suffers and dies on stage at the Dionysia, the great dramatic festival at Athens (of the South?), is in fact dionysus himself, being killed."

PAUL ALWAYS USES THE SILENCE CONCEPT TO WARN ABOUT RARE WITCH OR SORCERESS

The Thessalian Witch or Hag is the DIVINA of Lectio-Divina with the claim the claim to hear voices:

Did the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reached? 1 Corinthians 14:36

............ If anybody thinks he is a prophet or spiritually gifted, let him acknowledge that
............ what I am writing to you is the Lord's command. 1 Corinthians 14:37
............ ............ If he ignores this, he himself will be ignored. 1 Corinthians 14:38

The Song of Solomon was an ancient story of the Sumerian Tripple Goddesses who devolved into a FAMILY of father, mother (spirit) and infant son since males seemed necessary for procreation. Men who hallucinate that they hear "a spirit" and are marked by all of history as PARASITES naturally seduce women into being partners in a Prophetic Fall From Grace.

Anyone defining WORDS and seeing how they are used in the ancient texts will KNOW that this is a typical Fertility Ritual from Babylon onward.  Based on the Driven Purpose to DEPROGRAM young conservatives and add them to the Instrumental SECT; and by Paul's proof they are not ignorant of the Bible as it appears but are foreordained. Jude warns against the ancient PATTERN and the Instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted fall from grace at Mount Sinai:

Jude 3  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation,
        it was needful for me to write unto you,
        and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith  [The Faith is the Word or Logos as God's Regulative Principle]
        which was once delivered unto the saints.
Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares,
        who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,
        ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,
        and denying
                the only Lord God,
                AND
                our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jude 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this,
        how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt,
        afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Jude 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate,
        but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains
        under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Jude 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner,
        giving themselves over to fornication,
        and going after strange flesh,
        are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire

TRIPLEGODDESS1.gif Semiramis.Trinity.gif

Sara Barton is one of the popular women involved with men who claim that WE USE women.  However, the males have no Christ-given role beyond GOING into all of the world and preached what JESUS COMMANDED them to speak.  Jesus does not pray for the World, Kosmos, Ecumenical of the kingdom of the Devil.  He was sent to seek and find LOST SPIRITS who are not OF the World order which is FACILITATED by unauthorized and ungodly CLERGY.

Jeanene Reese claims female authority because the EARTH was female and Adam was commanded to cleave to her: not aware of word definitions she thinks that men should submit to women.

The Hieros-Gamos in Song of Solomon and of the BRIDES in Revelation 18.

In ancient Sumerian cosmology, heaven (An) and earth (Ki) were originally a single entity, the sacred mountain Anki. The lower valley-like part of Anki, earth, was female; while its upper summit, heaven, was male.

This is done in a virtual sense when people "Celebrate their union" as a spiritual ting.

Earth is Jeanene Reese's PATTERN for Female Roles.

Modern scholars such as Joseph Campbell hold that the creation story of the Book of Genesis represents a retelling of the Enuma Elish creation myth. Here, the vision of Aspu and Tiamat's coupling is condensed into the formula:

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. (Gen 1:2)

180px-Judah_and_tamar.jpg
Tamar and Judah.

In this view, the Mesopotamian vision of the marriage between heaven (God) and earth (the salt-water ocean) was inherited by the early Hebrews, who participated in hieros gamos rituals until at least the time of the Babylonian exile. The story of Eve and the Serpent, according to this theory, is an inverted version of earlier mythologies in which the serpent diety was originally the natural consort of the Mother Goddess. In the biblical version, however, both Eve and the serpent are cursed by the sovereign male deity, Yahweh. This reversal of roles is thought to be the result of the patriarchal system of Israel imposing itself on the older mythology of Canaan and Egypt. Campbell points out that the serpent plays a positive role in the old legends of Moses, who carries a powerful rod which has the power to turn itself into a serpent (Ex. 4) and is commanded by God to create and uplift a brozne serpent icon which heals the Israelites (Num. 21).

A biblical instance of a sacred harlot probably associated with the tradition of hieros gamos concerns the patriarch Judah in the Book of Genesis. Judah, whose lineage is about to expire, goes to the town of Timnah for a spring sheep-shearing festival, where he has sexual relations with a veiled sacred harlot near the town gate. The woman is actually his daughter-in-law Tamar, who bears him twin sons that become the forefathers of the Tribe of Judah.

Later, such practices were strongly condemned by the prophets and writers of biblical histories. Deuteronomy 23:17 forbids the practice which Tamar imitated, saying: "No Israelite man or woman is to become a shrine prostitute." The prophet Jeremiah complained: "Have you seen what faithless Israel has done? She has gone up on every high hill and under every spreading tree and has committed adultery there" (Jeremiah 3:6).

The Books of Kings refer to male shrine prostitutes as common in the Kingdom of Judah as early as the days of King Rehoboam (tenth century B.C.E.) and as late as King Josiah (late seventh century B.C.E.): "He (Josiah) also tore down the quarters of the male shrine prostitutes, which were in the temple of the Lord and where women did weaving for Asherah" (2 Kings 23:7).

On the other hand, the ancient tradition of the deity's conjugal relations with the people of the land found its way into the Jewish tradition when the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah both referred to God as the "husband" of Israel. Speaking of the city of Jerusalem, Isaiah wrote: "As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you" (Isaiah 62:4). In later tradition, the Sabbath would be welcomed by the faithful congregation in the role of a Bride, and the Shekhinah would be seen as a feminine aspect of God that, among other things, plays a wifely role to a tzaddik, or holy man.

Finally, the Song of Solomon, although it has many interpretations, is often cited as an example of the literature of hieros gamos.

Sara Barton: A woman Called

People who claim that A spirit made them think they are CALLED for a role God has not authorized should understand that the Personified spirit is named APOLLON who is the king of the Locusts. A student will understand that the locusts are the MUSES or musical prophesiers.  He is the Musical Worship Team.

Sara Barton: As one who pastors a community,

A Pastor FEEDS Lambs and does not entertain goats.  God supplied all of the food and defined the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness.

The assembly was EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing or rhetoric.
The assembly was INCLUSIVE of REST, readiing and rehearsing the WORD as God's Regulative Principle.
That pattern never changed for the quarantined godly people where REST parses to SKHOLE. 
Jesus died to give REST (and school) by expelling the Laded Burden and Burden Laders.
There is no Role and no Dole for male or female to try to "further expound" that which Jesus has certified.

No Prophecy of Scripture is of any Private Interpretation.

All have the right to read Scipture as it has been written: no clergy has the right to further expound that which has been expounded by the Spirit of Christ in the Prophets and as the Living Word inspiring the Apostles. The role of the assembly is to REST (from ritual), READ and DISCUSS the Word of God.  Jesus paid it all can be interpreted as "Jesus paid it all" and He asks rhetorically "Why spend your money on what is bread: the water of the Word is free of charge."
  1. The Prophets defined the REST from religions of self-speak and music both inclusively and exclusively.
  2. Jesus fulfilled SCRIPTURE or that which spoke about Him and spoke ONLY what the Father delivered to Him by His Breath.
  3. Peter outlaws anything beyond PREACHING the Word by READING the Word which would blaspheme the Holy Spirit christ.
  4. Anyone who speaks beyond that which is written is identified as a False Teacher and FOREORDAINED according to Jude.

Jesus died to become the only Pastor and is still the only teacher or feeder of His "little flock" called the WAY that is called a SECT.  The prophets hostile to the Civil-Military-Clergy complex of the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned tribe of Levi (Genesis 49).  The Levites got their assignment after they jumped at the chance of executing 3,000 of the brethren and sistern because they rose up against God in Instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted idolatry at Mount Sinai.  The folly began when Moses and Aaron SPOKE the song and Miriam rose up AGAINST God and led the women out just chanting a portion and beating on drums or sistrums of delusion.  Miriam was an Instrumental Prophesier.  In Bible 101 we learned that she was a soothsayer or sorceress both performed with instruments purpose driven to "Make the Lambs dumb before the slaughter."

Galatians 3:28 uses the word NEITHER male nor female and not BOTH.  The Father or Teacher supplies all of the speaking material and Paul COMMANDED that both male and female be peaceable or silent.

The purpose for the men lifting holy "palms" without WRATH means ORGE or ORGY. 
The female led paganism was an orgy using SEX in their worship in order to fleece the men.  They are commanded to be SILENT and SEDENTARY "So that all might be saved or SAFE from the religious-sex connection" and come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH. The truth is the Word or Logos which is the Regulative Principle outlawing personal opinions, personal experiences.singing, playing instruments or acting.

The Spirit of Christ (God's breath) defined the REST from pastors both inclusively and exclusively. God's Spirit said of those who do not SPEAK that which is delivered to them that THERE IS NO LIFE IN THEM.

The spirit OF Christ spoke through the PROPHETS to univerally condemn music as the MARK and CAUSE of rejecting the Word. Otherwise, to prophesy meant to MAKE SELF a prophets in a singing, dancing and musical sense.

Moses wrote an inverted version of Clay Tablets after the fall into Instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted idolatry at Mount Sinai. As he warns those sentenced to return to Babylonianism, the story of EVE is the story of the first woman who claimed that SHE got a MAN from a god.  Peter says that she was wholly seduced and Cain (from a musical mark) was OF that wicked one. Paul silences both male and female other than the READER and the Jewish synagogue never read the group of texts explaining and excluding any performance preaching.

Eve as the woman as the separation of the original hermaphrodite god. That which was removed (in myths) was a Vires or Venom or Venus.

Strabo in his Geography wrote

[10.3.15] They invented names appropriate to the flute, and to the noises made by castanets, cymbals, and drums, and to their acclamations and shouts of "ev-ah," and stampings of the feet; (Eve or Sophia-Zoe) (See The Eve-Zoe connection)

and they also invented some of the names by which to designate the ministers,
choral dancers, and attendants upon the sacred rites,
I mean "
Cabeiri" and "Corybantes" and "Pans" (gender-bent) and "Satyri" and "Tityri,"

and they called the god "Bacchus," and Rhea "Cybele" or "Cybebe" or "Dindymene" according to the places where she was worshipped. Sabazius also belongs to the Phrygian group and in a way

(Priests of Cybele were effeminate and emasculated themselves. Paul said in Galatians 5:12, "As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!" The agitators "drove people out of their homes (churches?)) All pagan gods or goddesses and therefore their priests were homosexual.

is the child of the Mother, since he too transmitted the rites of Dionysus.

[10.3.19] Further, one might also find, in addition to these facts concerning these genii and their various names, that they were called,

not only ministers of gods,
but also gods themselves.

For instance, Hesiod says that five daughters were born to Hecaterus and the daughter of Phoroneus, from whom sprang the mountain-ranging nymphs (like har-meggido little hills striving to be mountains), goddesses, and the breed of Satyrs,

creatures worthless and unfit for work,
and also the Curetes, sportive gods, dancers.

And the author of Phoronis speaks of the

Curetes as "flute-players" and "Phrygians"; and
others as "earth-born" and "wearing brazen shields."

Theophilus.Autolycus.II.html This Eve, on account of her having been in the beginning deceived by the serpent, and become the author of sin, the wicked demon, who also is called Satan, who then spoke to her through the serpent, and who works even to this day in those men that are possessed by him, invokes as Eve.58 And he is called "demon" and "dragon," on account of his revolting from God. For at first he was an angel. And concerning his history there is a great deal to be said; wherefore I at present omit the relation of it, for I have also given an account of him in another place.

The word "abomination" is also key to understanding the context. In Hebrew, the word "to 'evah," (abomination) is almost invariably linked to idolatry. In the passages from which both verses are taken, God tells Moses to tell the people not to follow the idolatrous practices of the people around them, people who sacrificed their children to Molech, or who masturbated into the fire to offer their semen to Molech, for example. Chapter 20 starts off with the same warning.

"To 'evah" also means "something which is ritually unclean," not something evil in itself, like rape or theft. Eating pork or having sex during menstruation are ritually unclean.

Hislop notes that: "The Primeval or Creative god was mystically represented as Androgyne, as combining in his own person both sexes (Ibid.), being therefore both Janus and Cybele at the same time.

In opening up the Mysteries, therefore, of this mysterious divinity,

it was natural that the Pontifex should bear the key of both these divinities. Janus himself, however, as well as Pluto, was often represented with more than one key.

"This Phaethon (son of Helios), or Lucifer, who was cast down is further proved to be Janus; for Janus is called "Pater Matutinus" (HORACE); and the meaning of this name will appear in one of its aspects when the meaning of the name of the Dea Matuta is ascertained. Dea Matuta signifies "The kindling or Light-bringing goddess," * and accordingly, by Priscian, she is identified with Aurora."

Zoe or Sophia-Zoe is the feminine from of Lucifer and she forces the males into musical worship teams.

Elsewhere Hislop notes: "The name, as given in Greek by Berosus, is O-annes; but this is just the very way we might expect "He-anesth," "the man," to appear in Greek. He-siri, in Greek, becomes Osiris; and He-sarsiphon, Osarsiphon; and, in like manner, He-anesh naturally becomes Oannes. In the sense of a "Man-god"

Osiris was worshiped under the literal bull Apis and idolized as the golden calf at Mount Sinai. The "because of transgression" sin which brought on the Law was the musical worship they brought with them from Egypt.

THE LAW SILENCED MIRIAM AND GAVE HER A DOSE OF LEPROSY FOR PRETENDING.

Exodus 15:[20] sumpsit ergo Maria prophetis soror Aaron tympanum in manu egressaeque sunt omnes mulieres post eam cum tympanis et choris
God will afflict Miriam with leprosy when she claims to speak for God.  The first meaning of prophet in the PAGAN sense meant a charismatic, musical performer.  All dramatic performance is INTERPRETATION which is, according to Paul, just speaking in tongues.

For, if you lay anything out on a bad wife and upon an enemy, that is an expense; that which is laid out on a deserving guest and a friend is gain; as that, which is expended upon sacred rites, is a profit to the wise man.

Eat, drink, indulge your tastes with me, and surfeit yourself with enjoyments; my house is at your service, myself likewise do I wish to be at your service. For, through the blessing of the Gods, I may say that, by reason of my wealth, I could have married a dowered wife of the best family; but I don't choose to introduce an everlasting female barker at me into my house.

Notes from 2 Maccabees defining the Abomination of Desolation
The tensions which led to the Jewish revolt were exacerbated when the Jewish high priest, a Hellenist himself, offered a sacrifice to Heracles (Hercules) who was a Greek symbol of homosexuality.

John in Revelation 18 as well as ALL definitions of arusal singing and instruments calls it SORCERY used to DECEIVE the whole world.  The Iraelite NATION was DECEIVED here and later by usurping women.

Used in the Septuagint of the Egyptian sorceries (Exod. vii. 22. Of Babylon, Isa. xlvii. 9, 12). From farmakon a drug, and thence a poison, an enchantment. Plato says: "There are two kinds of poisons used among men which cannot clearly be distinguished. There is one kind of poison which injures bodies by the use of other bodies according to a natural law...
        but there is another kind which injures by sorceries and incantations and magic bonds, as they are termed, and induces one class of men to injure another as far as they can, and persuades others that they, above all persons, are liable to be injured by the powers of the magicians.  [Musica and Magica are similar]

Amos 5:25 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?

No: God had not commanded sacrifices. However, the Israelites worshipped MOLOCH where the Levites were an old Infant burning priesthood in Egypt and in Jerusalem when they got a chance.

Amos 5:26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.
Amos 5:27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.

They worshipped the Starry host instead of the GOD OF HOSTS.

        and offered sacrifice unto the idol,
        and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.

A Church of Christ is not a "community" defined by Rubel Shell and other in terms of "commune". 

Rubel Shelly and John York: Just as identity in Christ is always COMMUNITY identity,

our reading of Scripture becomes a COMMUNITY READING as well.

While we still have access to reading as individuals,

we stop asking, "What does this mean to me?"--as though there is such an isolated meaning. Instead we have a GROUP MENTALITY that asks, "What does this mean to US?"

Sara Barton: my pastoral impulse this week is to proclaim the message of the Song of Songs. And here’s why: We desperately need public, communal language about sex, and we have an oft-overlooked resource in the Bible.

The commanded way to PROCLAIM any Bible text is to PREACH it by READING it which is the only way to preserve the LOGOS or Regulative Principle which outlaws anything but the words READ or SPEAK which words are the opposite of ODE.

Jesus warned that theologians or Doctors of the Law Take Away the Key to Knowledge.  There is no reason that they should understand that Solomon was covered up with wives and concubines or singers both male and female.  Solomon built a Temple which God did not command at an old Jebusite High place.  It was laready operating and now abandoned to Babylonianism. If you are ignorant of the Clay Tablets you should not presume to be a thought leader.

"There are enchanters and diviners , [mantikous kai epōdous] , versed in the rites and customs relative to the dead, who go about villages and towns begging [epait-eō 2. beg as a mendicant,,] . There are others who are more civilized and better informed than these, who inculcate the vulgar opinions concerning Hades,, which, according to their ideas, tend to piety and sanctity. Women study philosophy with some of them, but abstain from sexual intercourse. 15(61) Aristobulus says, that he saw at Taxila two SOPhists (wise men), both Brachmanes, the elder had his head shaved, but the younger wore his hair; both were attended by disciples.

Aristobulus relates also some strange and unusual customs of the people of Taxila. Those, who through poverty are unable to marry their daughters, expose them for sale in the market-place, in the flower of their age, to the sound of shell trumpets and drums, with which the war-note is given. A crowd is thus assembled. First her back, as far as the shoulders, is uncovered, then the parts in front, for the examination of any man who comes for this purpose. If she pleases him, he marries her on such conditions as may be determined upon.

Chambers' Encyclopedia says: "The Jews, as well as the early Christians, had no special names for the single days, but counted their number from the previous Sabbath, beginning with Sunday, as the first after the Sabbath, and ending with Friday, as the sixth after the previous, or eve (Ereb) of the next Sabbath. 

   The planetary gods Nardouk (Jupiter), Adar (Saturn), Istar (Venus, Zoe, Lucifer), Nergal (Mars), and Nebo (Mercury),* were all worshiped by the ancient Israelites. Istar was called "Queen of the Stars." Moloch, the rival of Jehovah, who shared for centuries the worship of the Hebrews, had his blazing star, the emblem of his implacable cruelty. The worship of Astarte, daughter of the moon, and "Queen of Heaven," whose emblem was a star, was introduced by Solomon himself (1 Kings xi, 5; 2 Kings xxiii, 13).

   The Ghebers of Hebron 2 Hoaea, xii. 4 derives the name Israel from Sarah to contend, to fight, and El = God of Fire. — Gen. xxxii. '28. Asarians, Asriel, Israel, a name of the War god {Exodus, xiii. 21, 22, xiv. 25), Saturn and the Sun. The Fire-god Azar was the God of war, and M'irs was the Sun. — Macrob. I. xvii. OS
  
The Jews blew the trumpet on the newmoon, poured out libations and offered burnt sacrifices. And for this duty the Lobii, Luim  or Levites were assigned to do just what the Brahmans did in India. They ministered to la'hoh, Lord of Life, according to Exodus, iii. 14 ; xxxviii. 21; xl. 15; Jeremiah, xxxiii. 18. Hence the Jews were the Brahmaus of Palestine, as Josephus said, worshipping Brahma, whom, for their own political purposes, they chose to regard as Ab (Father) Ram (Most High) which title is not unsuitable to the Most High of the Hindu Gods. King states that the words brahrna and abrahm have the same numerical value.
but the younger wore his hair; both were attended by disciples. When not otherwise engaged, they spent their time in the market-place. They are honoured as public counsellors, and have the liberty of taking away, without payment, whatever article they like which is exposed for sale; when any one accosts them, he pours over them oil of jessamine, in such profusion that it runs down from their eyes. Of honey and sesamum, which is exposed for sale in large quantity, they take enough to make cakes, and are fed without expense.

Sara Barton: Song of Songs is unique in several ways, one of which is the fact that it’s the only place in Scripture where a woman’s voice leads the conversation (the woman speaks 61 of 117 verses). In light of what we’ve heard lately, it seems like a good time to let a wise woman speak about sexual activity that’s right and good, a woman who not only speaks but sings and shouts about intimate, sensual, erotic passion. And in all her talk about kissing, touching, tasting, and smelling, she does not offend with crass or vulgar language. She exemplifies how it’s possible to speak about sex and intimacy appropriately. We might do well to let her teach us a thing or two.

Paul silenced both men and women: He silenced women because they pretended and sold themselves as hearing the voice or impulses of the gods.  They were silenced in all of the DIRECT COMMANDS which cannot be refuted because.

1Tim. 2:5 For there is one God,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the man Christ Jesus;

That also excludes THE MAN in the assembly.

Gregory Nazianzen
Nor are we concerned with Phrygian mutilations and flutes and Corybantes, and all the ravings of men concerning Rhea [Zoe], consecrating people to the mother of the gods, and being initiated into such ceremonies as befit the mother of such gods as these. Nor have we any carrying away of the Maiden, nor wandering of Demeter, nor her intimacy with Celei and Triptolemi and Dragons; nor her doings and sufferings ... for I am ashamed to bring into daylight that ceremony of the night, and to make a sacred mystery of obscenity. Eleusis knows these things, and so do those who are eyewitnesses of what is there guarded by silence, and well worthy of it. Nor is our commemoration one of Dionysus, and the thigh that travailed with an incomplete birth, as before a head had travailed with another; nor of the hermaphrodite god, nor a chorus of the drunken and enervated host; nor of the folly of the Thebans which honours him; nor the thunderbolt of Semele which they adore. Nor is it the harlot mysteries of Aphrodite, who, as they themselves admit, was basely born and basely honoured; nor have we here Phalli and Ithyphalli, shameful both in form and action; nor Taurian massacres of strangers; nor blood of Laconian youths shed upon the altars, as they scourged themselves with the whips; and in this case alone use their courage badly, who honour a goddess, and her a virgin. For these same people both honour effeminacy, and worship boldness.
11 There was a temple of Rhea [EVE] in Phrygia, in which at her festivals people mutilated themselves to do her honour. The flutes alluded to served to turn the thoughts of the sufferes from the pain of the operation. 

The Corybantes were the ministers of the goddess, who led the wild orgies [Paul's Wrath] of her worship. It is believed that there is an allusion to this practice of self-mutilation in Galat. v. 12. So at least S. Jerome, S. Ambrose, and all the Greek Fathers take the passage. S. Thomas Aquinas, understanding the word in the same sense, applies it mystically; and Estius, who here follows Erasmus, refers the "cutting off" merely to excommunication, a sense which he calls "Apostolico sensu dignior,"through why "dignior" it is not easy to see. Yet he acknowledges that those who interpret it literally do so "non immerito."

Plut. Adulator 12

They tell us that gad-flies creep into the ears of bulls, and ticks into those of dogs. [Catamites]

But I am sure the parasite lays so close siege and sticks so fast to the ears of the ambitious
        with the repeated praises of their worth,
        that it is no easy matter to shake him off again.

Indeed they who continue their applauses to so inconsiderable a thing as a single action,
        a wise saying, or a smart jest, do only a little present mischief;
        but they who from single acts proceed to debauch even the habits of the mind
        with their immoderate praises are like those treacherous servants who,
        not content to rob the common heap in the granary,
        filch even that which was chosen and reserved for seed.
As Plato somewhere remarks, that a lover who is always a flatterer of his beloved object
        styles a flat nose lovely and graceful,
        an hawk nose princely, the black manly,
        and the fair the offspring of the Gods;
and observes particularly
        that the appellation of honey-pale
        is nothing but the daub of a gallant
        who is willing to set off his mistress's pale complexion.2
           Now indeed an ugly fellow bantered into an opinion that he is handsome,
                   or a little man magnified into tall and portly, [p. 118]
                   cannot lie long under the mistake nor receive any great injury by the cheat;
                   but when vice is extolled by the name of virtue,
        so that a man is induced to sin not only without regret but with joy and triumph,
        and is hardened beyond the modesty of a blush for his enormities,
        this sort of flattery, I say, has been fatal even to whole kingdoms.
                It was this that ruined Sicily,
                by styling the tyranny of Dionysius [New Wineskins god]
                and Phalaris nothing but justice and a hatred of villanous practices

It was this that overthrew Egypt, by palliating the king's effeminacy,
        his yellings, his enthusiastic rants, and his beating of drums,
        with the more plausible names of true religion and the worship of the Gods.


It was this that had very nigh ruined the stanch Roman temper,
        by extenuating the voluptuousness, the luxury, the sumptuous shows,
        and public profuseness of Antony,
        into the softer terms of humanity, good nature,
        and the generosity of a gentleman who knew how to use the greatness of his fortune.

What but the charms of flattery made Ptolemy turn piper and fiddler?
What else put on Nero's buskins and brought him on the stage?

Because Solomon and the Jews had been "turned over to worship the starry host" a student should not see the Song as a PATTERN for preaching and teaching FOR hire.

Sara Barton: I regularly read Song of Songs with college students in a Bible course I teach. And in that conversation, I own up to the fact that I like sex, that twenty-five plus years into marriage, my husband and I are still into each other, still engage in pillow talk with each other, and that we are learning with each passing year how to be more intimate with each other – sexually, emotionally, and spiritually.

That will get you invited to a lot of what Ezekiel called Workshops of Evil where Women cause the souls of MEN to FLY.
See Women Preachers Warned About by the Spirit OF Christ in Ezekiel 13

And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Woe to the women that sew pillows (seductive suggestion) to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you? Ezekiel13:18

Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them, Eze 13:17

And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? Eze 13:19

Pollute is from the Hebrew word:

Chalal (h2490) khaw-lal' to wound, to dissolve; figurative to profane (a person, place or thing), to break (one's word), to begin (as if by an "opening wedge"); denom. (from 2485) to play the flute): defile, eat as common things, gather the grape thereof, take inheritance, pipe, player on instruments, pollute, (cast as) profane (self), prostitute Yes, I know that pollute means different things, but isn't it interesting that God always associates things like pollute, flute and prostitute?

Sara Barton: Despite my insistence that the Song is spiritually significant, a few of my students insist that sex is not an appropriate subject for Bible class or even for the Bible. Some even vote for removing it from the canon. I often overhear at least one side conversation as my students leave, “That was awkward.” I find it ironic that “locker-room talk” is forgiven in our sex-saturated society, but talking about sex becomes awkward in Bible class. This tells me we are doing something wrong in the church.

No, this is Purpose Driven and God is doing the DRIVING.  At the right time the prophecy of Revelation 17f is fulfilled. The Babylon Mother of Harlots neuters males as "lusted after fruits" (same as in Amos 8).  The craftsmen are speakers, singers, instrument players and prostitutes. The Grinders and the Brides and Bridegroom and the piping sound is the mark of the Hieros Gamos or sacred end time rise of Babylonianism. When you see and hear the MARKS it is sign defined in Isaiah 30 of God driving His enemies ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or Sophists who are speakers, singers or instrument players SELLING themselves speaking their OWN words. Jesus calls them the sons of the Devil.

Prostitute.Sell.Word.Songs.gif

WITHOUT GETTING TOO EXPANSIVE, THE SONG OF SOLOMON IS CELEBRATING THE HOLY MARRIAGE BY WHICH THE KING AND A PROSTITUTE CELEBRATE ON BEHALF OF OTHERS.

The godly Jewish women and men were quarantined to their isolated towns and not permitted to attend this celebration of the Babylon Mother of Harlots as a temple and by a king which God did NOT command but abandoned.

Inanna Gifts of Me - Genun Jubal Parallel

Inanna as Queen of Heaven and Earth, cylinder seal, Akkad period, c. 2334-2154 BCE. In it, the Goddess wears the horned and tiered crown, image of the sacred mound, which is worn by all the major Sumerian deities, and the tiered dress worn by Sumerian goddesses. An eight-rayed star is near her, the image of the planet Venus. She carries a staff of intertwined serpents and stands on rests her foot upon lions. Shoots ending in buds spring from her right shoulder, indicating her nature as a Goddess of War and Fertility. Sometimes these buds and maces alternate with formalized images of the serpent that come from the Snake Goddesses of Neolithic times.

Enoch Chapter 63

1 I saw also other countenances in that secret place. I heard the voice of an angel, saying, These are the angels

who have descended from heaven to earth,
and have revealed secrets to the sons of men,
and have seduced the sons of men to the commission of sin.

See Enki and the World order to see how Inanna lusted for the ME or powers.

Enki or Ea is the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL.

mes tree planted in the Abzu, rising over all lands;
great dragon who stands in Eridug,

Inanna is not happy that she does not have grave responsibilities. Therefore, she gets it all.

(Wolkstein, Kraemer, 12-27)

Inanna placed the shugurra, the crown of the steppe, on her head.
She went to the sheepfold, to the shepard.
She leaned back against the apple tree.
When she leaned against the apple tree,
..........her vulva was wonderous to behold.
..........Rejoicing at her wounderous vulva,
..........the young woman Inanna applauded herself.
 
She said:
 
"I, the Queen of Heaven, shall visit the God of Wisdom.
I shall go to Abzu, the sacred place in Eridu.
I shall honor Enki, the God of Wisdom in Eridu.
I shall utter a prayer to Enki at the deep sweet waters."
..........(Enki or Ea was the patron god of music and more)
 
Inanna set out by herself.
When she was within a short distance of the Abzu,
He whose ears are wide open,
He who knows the me, the holy laws of heaven and earth,
..........He who knows the heart of the gods,
..........Enki (Ea), the God of Wisdom, who knows all things,
..........Called to his servant, Isimud:
He gave me the quiver.
He gave me the art of lovemaking.
He gave me the art of kissing the phallus.
He gave me the art of prostitution.
He gave me the art of speeding.
 
He gave me the art of forthright speech.
He gave me the art of slanderous speech.
He gave me the art of adorning speech.
He gave me the cult of the prostitute.
He gave me the holy tavern.
 
He gave me the holy shrine.
He gave me the holy priestess of heaven.
He gave me the resounding musical instrument.
He gave me the art of song.
He gave me the art of the elder.
 
He gave me the art of the hero.
He gave me the art of power.
He gave me the art of treachery.
He gave me the art of straightforwardness.
He gave me the plundering of cities.
He gave me the setting up of lamentations.
He gave me the rejoicing of the heart.

Hesoid Theogony

"She is called Dat ba'thani, Lady of the Serpent. Another name of ´Asherah in the first millennium BCE is Chawat, which is Hawah in Hebrew and Eve in English. Her full title is Rabat Chawat ´Elat, Great Lady Eve the Goddess, and is associated with the serpent. Thus, Chawa/ Eve (ZOE) is probably a form of´Asherah as a Serpent Goddess. As a snake goddess, She was also represented by bronze serpent forms, examples of which have been found in archaeological excavations in the Levant. In fact the Nehush-tan, literally the Bronze Serpent which is associated with Moses, is much more likely an emblem of Asherah. It too was removed from the Jerusalem temple the same time as the asherah objects.

THE SONG AND LAMENTING FOR TAMMUZ BY THE WOMEN IN EZEKIEL 8
The SHEPHERD is Tammuz or Adonis

INANNA (Inannu)

Sumerian earth-goddess, sister of Ereshkigal. She loved Dumuzi. Babylonian mother-goddess, "mistress of heaven." See Ishtar (Babylonian) .

Nanna's daughter, and goddess of love and war. Inanna also visits Kur, which results in a myth similar to Greek seasonal story of Persephone. She sets out to witness the funeral rites of her sister-in-law Ereshkigal's husband Gugalana, the Bull of Heaven. She takes precaution before setting out, by telling her servant Ninshubur to seek assistance from Enlil, Nanna, or Enki at their shrines, should she not return. Inanna knocks on the outer gates of Kur and the gatekeeper, Neti, questions her. He consults with queen Ereshkigal and then allows Inanna to pass through the seven gates of the underworld. After each gate, she is required to remove adornments and articles of clothing, until after the seventh gate, she is naked. The Annuna pass judgment against her and Ereshkigal killed her and hung her on the wall.

The goddess Inanna was the most important female deity of ancient Mesopotamia. The etymology of her name is uncertain; but by the end of the third millennium B.C. it was taken to derive from nin.an.na : "Lady of Heaven." Also known as Innin, her epithets reflect her broad role in the pantheon: Ninmesarra - "Queen of all the Me," a title making her one of the most influential deities in the world of gods and men; Nu-ugiganna - "the Hierodule of Heaven," a projection of her erotic functions to the cosmic scale; and Usunzianna - "Exalted Cow of Heaven," she who provides life and sustenance to the land. In this aspect, it was Inanna who yearly reunited symbolically with her consort Dumuzi to restore life and fertility in the land.

This cycle, known as the Sacred Marriage, was a common theme in songs sung in her praise. Inanna represented the force of sexual reproduction and the power of the passions so incited. This passion finds its compliment in her martial character, 'the heroic champion, the destroyer of foreign lands, foremost in battle.' She was the daughter of the moon-god Nanna (though some traditions held her to be the daughter of An). Her sister was the netherworld goddess Ereskigal. Inanna's beast was the lion. Her usual symbol was the star or star disk (though it may also have been the rosette).

Ishtar's primary legacy from the Sumerian tradition is the role of fertility figure; she evolved, however, into a more complex character, surrounded in myth by death and disaster, a goddess of contradictory connotations and forces: fire and fire-quenching, rejoicing and tears, fair play and enmity. The Akkadian Ishtar is also, to a greater extent, an astral deity, associated with the planet Venus: with Shamash, sun god, and Sin, moon god, she forms a secondary astral triad. In this manifestation her symbol is a star with 6, 8, or 16 rays within a circle.

As goddess of Venus, delighting in bodily love, Ishtar was the protectress of prostitutes and the patroness of the alehouse. Part of her cult worship probably included temple prostitution, and her cult centre, Erech, was a city filled with courtesans and harlots. Her popularity was universal in the ancient Middle East, and in many centres of worship she probably subsumed numerous local goddesses.

In later myth she was known as Queen of the Universe, taking on the powers of An, Enlil, and Enki.

She appears at times as Anu' second consort. Ishtar, with Shamash and Sin (the life-force, the sun, and the moon), formed an important triad of divinities. In astronomy Ishtar was a name of the planet Venus -- the double aspect of the goddess being made to correspond to the morning and evening star. (Lucifer)

In Romans 14 Paul Warned against this evil practice and SILENCES anyone but those who Edify or Educate.  In Romans 15 He commands "using one mind and one mouth to speaking that which is written for our LEARNING."

Ovid, Art Love 35
Or Venus' temple; where, on annual nights,

They mourn Adonis with Assyrian rites.4
Nor shun the Jewish walk, where the foul drove

    Satire 6. But beware! that teacher is not always what he seems: true, he darkens his eyes and dresses like a woman, but adultery is his design. Mistrust him the more for his show of effeminacy; he is a valiant mattress-knight; there Triphallus drops the mask of Thais. Whom are you fooling? 41 not me; play this farce to those who cannot pierce the masquerade.
The wily wife arranges accordingly, and begins with them. . .     If your wife is musical, none of those who sell their voices 42 to the praetor will hold out against her charms. She is for ever handling musical instruments; her sardonyx rings sparkle thick all over the tortoise-shell; the quivering quill with which she runs over the chords will be that with which the gentle Hedymeles performed; she hugs it, consoles herself with it, and lavishes kisses on the dear implement

4 It was the custom among the Romans, to meet in the temples of Venus to mourn Adonis; of which the prophet Ezekiel speaks, (Ezek. viii. 14.); and infamous acts of lewdness were there committed, if we may believe Juvenal in his sixth satire.

Ezekiel 8:[14] et introduxit me per ostium portae domus Domini quod respiciebat ad aquilonem et ecce ibi mulieres sedebant plangentes Adonidem

    Satire 6.
No sooner has that fellow departed than a palsied Jewess, leaving her basket and her truss of hay,6667 a trusty go-between of highest heaven. She, too, fills her palm, but more sparingly, for a Jew will tell you dreams of any kind you please for the minutest of coins. comes begging to her secret ear; she is an interpreter
of the laws of Jerusalem, a high priestess of the tree,
On sabbaths rest from everything but love.5

Nor Isis' temple; for that sacred whore

Isis the mother (spirit, dove) of  the Egyptian trinity under the image of the golden CalveS.

5 There were great numbers of the Jews at Rome in Augustus's reign [23 September 63 BC – 19 August 14 AD], who were allowed full liberty to exercise their ceremonies, according to the law of Moses. And the Roman ladies went often to see them out of curiosity, which gave occasion for assignations at their synagogues.

Makes others, what to Jove she was before ;6
And if the hall itself be not belied,
E'en there the cause of love is often tried;
Near it at least, or in the palace yard,
From whence the noisy combatants are heard.
6 That is, many women were debauched by Isis's means, as she was by Jupiter under the name of Io.
The crafty counsellors, in formal gown, 7
There gain another's cause, but lose their own.
Their eloquence is nonpluss'd in the suit;
And lawyers, who had words at will, are mute.

The Cunning Craftsmen in Ephesians 4 are sophists meaning speakers, singers or instrument player. They are silenced because these are the marks of those LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.
7 The following verses are a happy paraphrase of Ovid; in whose time we find the long robe dealt as much with the stola, etc., as it does in our own. [David wore the STOLA because he was performing the role of women]

-Ov. Ars 1
You may believe; and Venus be my guide.10
Far hence ye vestals be, who bind your hair;11 And wives, who gowns below your ancles wear.
I sing the brothels loose and unconfin'd,
Th' unpunishable pleasures of the kind;
Which all alike for love or money find.
Venus from her adjoining temple smiles
To see them caught in their litigious wiles;
Grave senators lead home the youthful dame, 8
Returning clients when they patrons came.

Venus is Lucifer, Zoe (the BEAST and female instructing principle.  Also EVE as Paul warned.

8 We see these assemblies were composed of all sorts of persons; upon which our French author remarks thus: " This does not very well agree to the practice in our days; and I cannot comprehend how gallant women could frequent the courts of justice : where it is to be supposed, nobody came but such as had business and suits depending."
But above all, the Playhouse is the place; 9
There's choice of quarry in that narrow chace:
There take thy stand, and sharply looking out,
Soon may'st thou find a mistress in the rout,
For length of time or for a single bout.
9 It must be owned, the theatres 
The Theatres are berries for the fair;
Like ants or mole-hills thither they repair;
Like bees to hives so numerously they throng,
It may be said they to that place belong:
amphitheatres, cirques, hippodromes, and all places where the public feasts and rejoicings were kept, were very fatal to the chastity of the women of old [Cirques, Circus, Church]
Thither they swarm who have the public voice;
There choose, if plenty not distracts thy choice.
To see, and to be seen, in heaps they run;
Some to undo, and some to be undone

Romans 15:2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. [education]
Romans 15:3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

 
Sara Barton: I like to think that the Song of Songs teaches us the most when we simply let the poem do what it does, and the poem celebrates sexuality in a spiritual context.

Solomon and all of the kings had been abandoned to worship the starry host and sex because of the Instrumental-Trinitarian-perverted idolatry at Mount Sinai.  Because the "Jews" were defacto Egyptians, the Levites were an old infant-burning priesthood, and Miriam as a virtual "princess" would be the prophesier, soothsay-sorcerer for Hathor the Cow partner with Apis the Bull calf.  The people "rose up" against God in PLAY: this was both perverted sex play as a ritual drama and the playing of instruments.  These ACTS spit in the face of God who had saved them by Grace and given them THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT of Grace.  When God RESTED the message was for field bosses or religionists NOT to involve the people in the always-pagan seventh day worship inherited from Babylon. We know the names of the gods and goddesses where the goddess had emasculated the males and specialized in breeding warfare. She is still alive in Revelation 17.


Sara Barton: It teaches us about God and Israel,

Israel as the BRIDE of Jehovah was really Ishtar as the bride of Baal or other names.

The foulest Babylonian custom is that which compels every woman of the land to sit in the temple of Aphrodite and have intercourse with some stranger once in her life. Many women who are rich and proud and disdain to mingle with the rest, drive to the temple in covered carriages drawn by teams, and stand there with a great retinue of attendants. But most sit down in the sacred plot of Aphrodite, with crowns of cord on their heads; there is a great multitude of women coming and going; passages marked by line run every way through the crowd, by which the men pass and make their choice. Once a woman has taken her place there, she does not go away to her home before some stranger has cast money into her lap, and had intercourse with her outside the temple; but while he casts the money, he must say, “I invite you in the name of Mylitta” (that is the Assyrian name for Aphrodite). It does not matter what sum the money is; the woman will never refuse, for that would be a sin, the money being by this act made sacred. So she follows the first man who casts it and rejects no one. After their intercourse, having discharged her sacred duty to the goddess, she goes away to her home; and thereafter there is no bribe however great that will get her. So then the women that are fair and tall are soon free to depart, but the uncomely have long to wait because they cannot fulfil the law; for some of them remain for three years, or four. There is a custom like this in some parts of Cyprus.[2]

Sarpanit In Babylonian mythology, Sarpanit (alternately Sarpanitu, Zarpanit, Zarpandit, Zerpanitum, Zerbanitu, or Zirbanit) is a mother goddess of the god of wisdom, Nabu; the consort of the chief god, Marduk; and the daughter of the enlightened, Enkime. Her name means "the shining one", and she is sometimes associated with the planet Venus. By a play on words her name was interpreted as zēr-bānītu, or "creatress of seed", and is thereby associated with the goddess Aruru, who, according to Babylonian myth, created mankind.[

Her marriage with Marduk was celebrated annually at New Year in Babylon. She was worshipped via the rising moon, and was often depicted as being pregnant. She is also known as Erua. She may be the same as Gamsu, Ishtar, and/or Beltis.

Sara Barton: about Christ and the church.

It is a fact that the end-time church will depart from REST or EDUCATION into "worship" and religion which is always a lust to act out a sexual ritual. That was why Paul silenced the women and effeminate (boys) in Isaiah 3 "SO THAT all might be SAFE and come to a knowledge of the TRUTH." Truth is the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle which OUTLAWS any kind of ritual.

The Fuller and Wimber thesis is that musical worship, as well documented, is to bring on a sexual-like climax with the spirit. This comes just before passing the plate which has no command, example or inference to support people and staff.


Sara Barton:  And, it teaches us about two people who help us imagine a full definition of intimacy – sexual, emotional, spiritual intimacy. That’s why the Song is in the Bible. That’s why it’s read in Jewish communities at the celebration of Passover every year. It proclaims that the celebration of sexual intimacy, a central human experience, is appropriate religious conversation for God’s people.

Easter is the expected celebration of Ishtar worshipped by the women who intruded into the temple decorated with sexual symbols while the men held the first sun-rise service.  The Jews follow the Babylon Talmud filled with pretty vile concepts. One of these was that even children must get fall down drunk.  If you train up the children to Judaize you will suffer.  If Easter is Once a Year one supposes that one should not boast of their powers but must go celibate until "same time next year and the appointed hour."

"a man is bound to get so drunk with wine at Purim as not to know the difference between, 'Cursed is Naaman and Blessed is Mordecai.'" (Talmud, Megillah 2:7)

When all the company requested and earnestly begged it of him; first of all (says he), the time and manner of the greatest and most holy solemnity of the Jews is exactly agreeable to the holy rites of Bacchus; for that which they call the Fast they celebrate in the midst of the vintage, furnishing their tables with all sorts of fruits while they sit under tabernacles made of vines and ivy; and the day which immediately goes before this they call the day of Tabernacles.

Within a few days after they celebrate another feast, not darkly but openly, dedicated to Bacchus, for they have a feast amongst them called Kradephoria, from carrying palm-trees, and Thyrsophoria, when they enter into the temple carrying thyrsi.

However, the DIRECT COMMAND is to assemble ourselves ONCE a Week to Rest, Read and Rehears the Word.  Paul silences all self-pleasure including all of the performing arts and crafts so that we might "Use one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our learning."  Women are commanded to be silent in the same sense that men are to peaceable and quiet so that we might ALL BE SAFE and come to a knowledge of the truth.

A Christian has nothing for sale and nothing for sale is Christian

Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Rev 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

Rev 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians [Apollyon's muses or locusts] and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, [theater builders and stage managers] of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone [called a pipe, made a wistling sound to attract with spread legs.] shall be heard no more at all in thee;

Rev 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride [Nymphs of the  Hieros-Gamos] shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries [The work of the original Babylon mother of harlots] were all nations deceived.

Kiss the Candlestick good by. 

Rev 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries WERE all nations deceived.

JUDE SAYS THAT THEY ARE FOREORDAINED AND MARKED BY GOING BEYOND THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING.
