Pro and Con 1554
RAPTURE ON TRUMPETS,
My grandaughter came to our house and gave me a big hug as she was about to dash back out with a friend. Turning around in my computer chair, I looked at her and said, "You got a minute?" She said "Yes."
SEPTEMBER BIRTHSTONE, THE SAPPHIRE
I said, "You were born on Sept. 8." That got a quick nod. I said, "At 6 PM that day, this year, the Feast of Trumpets will begin. That just might be when the Rapture will be. That might be why you were born on that day."
"Do you know what your birthstone is? She didn't know. I told her, "It's the sapphire, and it means heaven. It is Jesus' birthstone; he was born on the Feast of Trumpets in September. We already know the Tribulation saints will be raptured on the Feast of Trumpets. We are all the Body of Christ, Jesus, the Tribulation saints and us, the Bride of Christ."
"Two-thirds of the Body of Christ already have the sapphire birthstone. So we, the other third of the Body of Christ, will probably have the sapphire birthstone too. We are all one body." Her face lit up. This makes sense. Now we are both hoping for the Rapture that day.
Last, I said, "Your birthday is Sept. 8, Trumpets is Sept. 9, and my dad's birthday is Sept. 10. Sounds like the Rapture just may be Sept. 9." Come to think of it, Ed's stepfather's birthday is Sept. 11 too.
I always shied away from the Feast of Trumpets, because the 2nd Rapture will be on that day. I just didn't put it all together until now. Of course, the Body of Christ should all have the same birthstone. One that means heaven is just perfect. The sapphire is the symbol of Saturn, Jesus' heavenly throne on the planet with brightness all around in Eze. 1:26-28. Heaven has a halo. That's just perfect.
Update on our health, etc.
Ed still is bedfast and is not over the effects of the bowel infection. He is thin and weak, can barely sit up on the edge of the bed by himself when coached by a physical therapist. When I do it, I have to help him.
My lung X-ray looks the same as when I was given the last antibiotic. I have to go to a specialist soon.
We are in lots of trouble financially. I don't know how I'm going to get through until September. I don't even have the money to pay the property insurance, let alone the other bills due this month. I just have enough to pay the for the electricity.
Vatican Takes On Christian Fundamentalists
by: Greg Burke, June 6, 2010
It’s not easy walking through the minefield called Middle Eastern politics, and a Vatican document released Sunday managed to criticize Israel, Egypt, Islam and even Christian fundamentalists.
The 46-page text, “The Catholic Church in the Middle East: Communion and Witness,” will serve as a working document for an October meeting at the Vatican about the Mideast....
Israeli occupation of Palestinian Territories is creating difficulties in everyday life, inhibiting freedom of movement, the economy and religious life,” the document said. “Moreover, CERTAIN CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALIST THEOLOGIES USE SACRED SCRIPTURE TO JUSTIFY ISRAEL’S OCCUPATION OF PALESTINE” (emphasis mine).
Wow! that October meeting would fit a Sept. 9, 2010 Rapture just right. I think the Pontifex Maximus is the first beast of Rev. 13. I don't know if it is this Pope or the next one. Isn't this just what you would expect the Antichrist to say? The Pope said, “Moreover, certain Christian fundamentalist theologies use Sacred Scripture to justify Israel’s occupation of Palestine.”
Wow! You'd think he'd never read the Old Testament. Ex 32:13 says, "Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and ALL THIS LAND THAT I HAVE SPOKEN OF WILL I GIVE UNTO YOUR SEED, AND THEY SHALL INHERIT IT FOR EVER."
"Satan's Throne Room" Part Two"
By Mike Curtiss (31 May 2010)
...Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos, died in B. C. 133, he bequeathed the Headship of the "Babylonian Priesthood" to Rome. When the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia (the region of Pergamos), they brought with them the Babylonian religion and rites. They set up a Pontiff who was head of the Priesthood. Later the Romans accepted this Pontiff as their civil ruler. Julius Caesar was made Pontiff of the Etruscan Order in B. C. 74. In B. C. 63 he was made "Supreme Pontiff" of the "Babylonian Order," thus becoming heir to the rights and titles of Attalus, Pontiff of Pergamos, who had made Rome his heir by will. Thus, Julius Caesar, the first Roman Emperor became the Head of the "Babylonian Priesthood," and Rome became the successor to Babylon. The Emperors of Rome continued to exercise the office of "Supreme Pontiff" until A. D. 376, when the Emperor Gratian, for Christian reasons, refused it. The Bishop of the Church at Rome, Damasus, was elected to the position. He had been Bishop 12 years, having been made Bishop in A. D. 366, through the influence of the monks of Mt. Carmel, a college of Babylonian religion originally founded by the priests of JEZEBEL. So in A. D. 378 the Head of the "Babylonian Order" became the Ruler of the "Roman Church." Thus Satan united Rome and Babylon in One Religious System."
Soon after Damasus was made "Supreme Pontiff" the "rites" of Babylon began to come to the front. The worship of the Virgin Mary was set up in A. D. 381. (All the outstanding festivals of the Roman Catholic Church are of Babylonian origin.) Easter is not a Christian name. It means "Ishtar," one of the titles of the Babylonian Queen of Heaven, whose worship by the Children of Israel was such an abomination in the sight of God. The decree for the observance of Easter and Lent was given in A. D. 519.
Thanks for this information. I think that the Pope, the Pontifex Maximus, will be the Antichrist, the first beast of Rev. 13.
Using Google, I found some interesting information. I didn't know that "Nimrod...means "the subduer of leopards" or that Egypt found a grave of Osirus, also known as Nimrod.
It is from: "Are They Digging Up Nimrod?"
Part III : Nimrod & Babylon Unlock The Future Of The Tribulation
"So what now does this all mean? The finding of Nimrod's tomb could be a sign from God that we are in the end times....
"Once the dirt and water were cleared then from the shaft located between the Sphinx and the Pyramid of Chefren (Khafre), archaeologists found three underground levels. From the lowest level came the sarcophagus of Osiris about 30 meters below the surface. So what does this all have to do with the past unlocking the future? As mentioned earlier, in the Bible it says the coming of the Son of Man would be like the days of Noah. God saved Noah and his family before the flood just as He will save Christians before the tribulation. Now after he saved Noah, man became corrupted again with one of its main leaders being Nimrod. This is just as in the tribulation the antichrist will lead man in corruption. In Revelation 13:2 it talks about the antichrist and says: "And the beast which I saw was like a leopard and his feet were like those of a bear and the mouth of a lion. And the dragon (Satan) gave him his power and his throne and great authority." The reference to a leopard is probably to NIMROD SINCE HIS NAME MEANS "THE SUBDUER OF LEOPARDS" as mentioned earlier. SO WHEN REVELATION 13:2 MENTIONS THE ANTICHRIST BEING LIKE A LEOPARD IT IS REFERING TO THE ANTICHRIST BEING LIKE NIMROD WHO WAS THE LEADER OF THE TOWER OF BABEL!..."
Nimrod, Part 2
"NIMROD MEANS LITERALLY "THE SUBDUER OF THE LEOPARD." THIS IS DERIVED FROM NIMR "A LEOPARD" AND RAD "TO SUBDUE." This means that he was known for a way of training leopards to aid him in hunting other wild beasts. OSIRIS WAS ALSO REPRESENTED BY LEOPARDS BECUASE (BECAUSE) HE WAS ALWAYS ARRAYED IN LEOPARD'S SKINS. So both Osiris and Nimrod were known for leopards and hunting."
I love to learn something new. I knew about the leopard representing Greece in Dan 7:4-7, but I hadn't thought about the leopard also representing Nimrod, the subduer of the leopard, and therefore also referring back to the Mystery Religion, Osiris, and the Tower of Babel. That really shows the continuity between Babylon I, Nimrod, the first Pontifex Maximus, the Tower of Babel, and Babylon III, the Antichrist, whom I think is the present-day Pontifex Maximus, the Pope, the first beast of Rev. 13.
Of Nimrod, Strong's Hebrew Bible Dictionary says, "Probably of foreign origin; Nimrod, a son of Cush: - Nimrod.
Hitchcock says Nimrod means "rebellion (but probably an unknown Assyrian word)".
Brown-Driver-Briggs says that Nimrod means rebellion or the valiant.
It takes someone that knows other languages to come up with another meaning for Nimrod, the subduer of the leopard.
The picture is perfect, since the title Pontifex Maximus refers back to Nimrod, the first Pontifex Maximus of the Mystery Religion of Babylon. This Mystery Religion is represented as if it goes in a circle. It passes from the Tower of Babel to Babylon II, from there to Media-Persia, from there to Greece, from there to the Holy Roman Empire, from there to the Ecclesiastical Roman Empire, and from there to Babylon III, where the Tower of Babel was located. All 7 are headed up by a Pontifex Maximus.
SATAN ALWAYS TWISTS THE TRUE
In "nimrod2.html", the author said of Nimrod, who was called Osiris, Saturn and Kronos, "Osiris is known as the "father of the gods" and the first of the "defied mortals." HE WAS WORSHIPPED UNDER THE TITLE OF SATURN AND KRONOS. SATURN IS THE GOD OF THE MYSTERIES, and means "the Hidden One."
SATAN WOULD HAVE US BELIEVE THAT SATURN IS ALSO THE HOODED FIGURE CALLED FATHER TIME, and that he is represented by lead. The Bible uses the gemstone sapphire to represent Saturn, not lead (Eze 1:26-28).
SAPPHIRE MEANS DEAR TO THE PLANET SATURN
According to Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Sapphire means dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit Sani, Saturn, and priya, dear.
I found this on the Internet at:
It says, "Sapphire is a variety of the mineral species corundum. Sapphires occur in all colors of the rainbow with the exception of red, which is ruby. The name corundum comes from the ancient Sanskrit "kuruvindam", while the name "SAPPHIRE" COMES FROM THE PERSIAN WORD "SAFIR", MEANING "BELOVED OF SATURN".
The sapphire is Jesus' birthstone. It represents heaven and September ("as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912"). Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets, which usually falls in September, and it did in 5 BC, the year of his birth.
The Feast of Trumpets will fall on Sept. 9, 2010. I went to YourSky and the new crescent Moon should be seen on the 9th. The First-Trump Rapture may happen that day. That is another time when heaven being represented as a sapphire, i.e., a September birthstone, could have another great meaning. Since sapphire also means "beloved of Saturn," it could easily apply to a September Rapture, when we will be taken to the third heaven - Saturn.
EARTH'S THIRD HEAVEN: (1) MARS, (2) JUPITER, AND (3) SATURN
The Last-Trump Rapture will likely take place on the Feast of Trumpets too, September 14, 2015. At that time, I think the whole Body of Christ will be on the heavenly sapphire, the 3rd heaven (II Cor. 12:1-3), Saturn, that has around it the rainbow-colored rings mentioned in Eze 1:26-28.
The sign of September and the sapphire is Virgo. That fits the sign Jesus was born under in Rev. 12. We are part of the Body of Christ, so we may be born on Tishri 1 also. The whole Body of Christ could be born into Heaven on Tishri 1, although at three different times.
James 5:7,8 says, "Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early (Tishri 1) and latter rain (Nisan 1). Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh." This sounds like the Lord will come by the next Tishri 1.
De 11:14 says, "I WILL GIVE YOU THE RAIN OF YOUR LAND IN HIS DUE SEASON, THE FIRST RAIN (Jesus was born on Tishri 1) AND THE LATTER RAIN (Jesus will return on Nisan 1), that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil."
Hosea 6:3 says, "Then shall we know, if we follow on to know THE LORD: HIS GOING FORTH IS PREPARED AS THE MORNING; AND HE SHALL COME UNTO US AS THE RAIN, AS THE LATTER AND FORMER RAIN UNTO THE EARTH."
Jer 5:24 says, "Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, THAT GIVETH RAIN, BOTH THE FORMER AND THE LATTER, IN HIS SEASON: HE RESERVETH UNTO US THE APPOINTED WEEKS OF THE HARVEST." The wheat harvest starts on Pentecost and ends about Tishri 1.
Joel 2:23 says, "Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and HE WILL CAUSE TO COME DOWN FOR YOU THE RAIN, THE FORMER RAIN, AND THE LATTER RAIN IN THE FIRST MONTH."
THE MARK OF THE BEAST AND THE SATURN CONNECTION
By Marilyn Agee
Before Noah's Flood, there were mixed-breed giants on the Earth, Satan's angels mixed with humanity. All flesh, except Noah and his family, had been corrupted. Satan was eight people away from winning the Angelic Conflict, but no one can win over God. He told Noah, "Make thee an ark of gopher wood" (Gen 6:14).
Today, pianks of petrified wood, with pitch in the seams and barnacles and sea anemones in it, have been found at 13,126 ft. elevation on Mt. Sulieman (meaning Solomon, peace) in Iran, proving the Bible right. Gen 8:4 says, "And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the MOUNTAINS (plural) of Ararat."
Mt. Ararat in Turkey, named by Marco Polo, is one peak in a plain. From the 13,126 ft. elevation on Mt. Sulieman in Iran, numerous peaks can be seen. The Bible is carefully worded. When Gen 11:2 says, "it came to pass, as they journeyed FROM THE EAST (Iran is east of Babylon), that they found a plain in the land of Shinar (Babylon); and they dwelt there," you know it is true.
Dan 12:7 says, "When the power of the HOLY PEOPLE (i.e., of the Roman Ecclesiastical Empire, the 6th head of the great red dragon) has been broken, all these things will be completed."
After the Flood, Satan set up the Mystery Religion of Babylon to lead men astray. He counterfeited the truth to confuse mankind. The Babylonians worshiped Nimrod, the Pontifex Maximus, then his son Tammuz, as the representatives of Saturn, also the literal Saturn as the star god, and Semiramis and Tammuz as madonna and child. Tammuz was supposed to have been killed by a wild boar and brought back to life as the reincarnation of Nimrod, the god Saturn. To the Babylonians, Saturn was the star of both Nimrod and Tammuz.
Eze 8:14 says, "Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz."
WHY DID SATAN PUT SO MUCH EFFORT INTO DISCREDITING SATURN?
He did it because Jesus' throne really is on Saturn. In Eze. 1:26, the sapphire represents Saturn, the throne of the only God/man Jesus Christ.
Eze 1:1,15, 26-28 says, "the heavens were opened, and I saw visions OF GOD....as I beheld the living creatures (lively things), behold one wheel (orbit) upon the EARTH by the living creatures, with his (the globe's) four faces (facing north, east, south and west)...
And above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (farther out in space than the 4 terrestrial planets whose orbits are concentric circles, wheels within wheels) was the likeness (symbolic language) of a THRONE, as (symbolic language) the appearance of a SAPPHIRE STONE (meaning dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit Sani, Saturn, and priya, dear): and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man (a God/man, v.1, i.e., Jesus Christ) above upon it. And I saw as the colour of amber (Saturn has amber on it), as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire (looking like the 7th flaming lamp on the lampstand), and it had BRIGHTNESS ROUND ABOUT (Saturn's ring system formed a halo around Heaven). As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness (symbolic language) of the glory of the LORD (YHWH)."
Jesus, the Son of God, is both YHWH, the King of Israel, and YHWH, of hosts, the Redeemer. Isa 44:6 says, "Thus saith the LORD (YHWH) the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD (YHWH) of hosts; I am the first (YHWH king of Israel), and I am the last (YHWH of hosts, the redeemer); AND BESIDE ME THERE IS NO GOD."
From Earth, Saturn is the third heaven, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Paul was caught up to the third heaven (Saturn) in II Cor. 12:3,4. It says, "And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."
After Noah's Flood, Satan was desperate to win the Angelic Conflict. He wanted to discredit Jesus (the Redeemer) and Saturn (the location of Jesus' throne). He decided to corrupt mankind through a false religion headed up by the Pontifex Maximus (Pope, Father) of the Mystery Religion of Babylon. This started with Nimrod, who became the Pontifex Maximus of the god Saturn, and the same type of thing persists today in the Roman Ecclesiastical Empire. Satan's throne was willed to Rome in 313 AD by Attalus III of Pergamos.
Rev 2:13 says, "I know thy works, and where thou dwellest (in Pergamos), even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, WHERE SATAN DWELLETH."
The Mystery Religion of Babylon started at the Tower of Babel, continued in Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Ecclesiastical Roman Empire. The Pontifex Maximus will come up out of the sea (Italy juts out into the Mediterranean Sea) and move the Vatican Holy See to the desert at Babylon, Iraq. The UN is rebuilding Babylon. The Mystery Religion of Babylon will be moved back to literal Babylon in the land of Shinar.
Rev. 17:3-5 says, "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness (lit., desert, i.e., Babylon): and I saw a woman (symbol of a religious group, the Mystery Religion of Babylon) sit upon a scarlet coloured beast (Satan), full of names of blasphemy (Father, Pontifex Maximus, Vicar of Christ), having seven heads (Five are fallen, Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, and the Holy Roman Empire, one is, the Holy Ecclesiastical Roman Empire and one, the religious system ruled by Antichrist and the False Prophet, is yet to come) and ten horns (kings). And the woman was arrayed in purple (color of royalty) and SCARLET colour (Nimrod's robes were scarlet), and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication (joining): And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
MODERN SIGNS THAT THE POPE REPRESENTS NIMROD AND SATURN
Nimrod wore a scarlet robe. As the god Saturn, his Talisman that was used in ritual magic had on it the six-pointed star that symbolizes man's union with the god Saturn. That star with Saturn in the center was not only on the Talisman of Saturn in the Mysteries, it is on the Pope's Dagon hat today. Dagon was another false god that inherited his reign from Nimrod. His hat represented the open mouth of a fish that came up out of the Flood.
Below are pictures of Pope Benedict XVI wearing his scarlet robe and giving the Satanic hand sign of the horns, wearing his lamb's wool pallium, sign of the office of a supreme man of the cloth (it has red crosses on it), wearing his Dagon hat with 2 six-pointed stars with Saturn in the middle, and wearing his scarlet Saturn hat. I don't know if the Antichrist will be this Pope or the next one, but the signs of his office are there now.
"THE RED COLOR IS A VESTIGE FROM THE DAYS WHEN SCARLET WAS THE PAPAL COLOR (white only became associated with the papacy after the Napoleonic wars)....Traditionally, he wears special red satin or velvet papal slippers indoors, and red leather papal shoes outdoors.
VATICAN means THE DIVINING SERPENT. In Latin, the word VATIS means DIVINER. CAN means SERPENT.
"...Is it any wonder, then, that the chief exorcist in the Vatican, a Father Gabriele Amorth, was recently quoted by The Telegraph, and Times Online, Mar 11, 2010, as exclaiming, "The Devil is in the Vatican".
THE MARK OF THE BEAST?
The Six-Pointed Star on the Babylonian Talisman of Saturn that was used to perform occult magic and communicate with evil spirits just might turn out to be the MARK OF THE BEAST. It was tattooed on people's hands or foreheads when they were initiated into the Mystery Religion.
Rev. 13:1-4,16-18 says, "I stood upon the sand of the sea (Thayer, specifically the Mediterranean), and saw a beast (the great red dragon, Satan) rise up out of the sea (Italy is in the Mediterranean Sea), having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads THE NAME (singular) OF BLASPHEMY (Pontifex Maximus). And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard (Greece), and his feet were as the feet of a bear (Media-Persia), and his mouth as the mouth of a lion (Babylon): and the dragon (Satan) gave him his power, and his seat (Satan's seat, willed to Rome by Attalus III of Pergamos), and great authority. And I saw one of his heads (the Holy Roman Empire) as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed (it became the Holy Roman Ecclesiastical Empire): and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon (Satan) which gave power unto the beast (the Pontifex Maximus): and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? (the Pope) who is able to make war with him? (so he has something to do with the peace treaty)...And he (the 2nd beast, the False Prophet) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive A MARK in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And THAT NO MAN MIGHT BUY OR SELL, SAVE HE THAT HAD THE MARK (the Talisman of Saturn?), OR THE NAME OF THE BEAST (the Saturnian Pontifex Maximus), OR THE NUMBER OF HIS NAME. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
The 6th planet from the Sun (Saturn), in Chaldean is STUR, which adds up to 666. S (60) + T (400) + U (6) + R (200) = 666.
Also, the six-pointed star that represents Saturn has 6 sides, 6 angles and 6 points - 666.
A GOD FORBIDDEN IMAGE, THE TALISMAN OF SATURN USED BY THE MAGI
"Talismans of the Magi"
"The talisman (tsilmenaia) signifies AN IMAGE, a figure, and was engraved in the form of an emblem or symbol on metals consecrated to the genii of the seven planets....
"In order to make the talisman of Saturn, a plaque of very pure lead must be obtained, cut in the form of a circle about the size of an ordinary medal, and the two faces polished smoothly.
"On the first face is engraved with a diamond-pointed (point) the image of a scythe, enclosed in a pentagram.
"On the other side is engraved a bull's head enclosed in a six-pointed star, and surrounded by letters composing the name Oriphiel, the planetary genius of Saturn according to the Alphabet of the Magi. The person who is to wear this talisman must engrave it himself, without witnesses of the deed and without having communicated his intention to anyone.
"He must choose for the commencement and termination of the task a Saturday, Dies Saturni, the day consecrated to Saturn....
"The Daimons or male spirits of the planets are now given by esoteric students of the Qabala as: ADONAI=SUN, Evoe=Moon. Saba=Mars, Astaphoi=Mercury, Eloi=Jupiter. Ouraioa=Venus and Ilde-baoth, or according to the Orphites JAHWEH= SATURN." (emphasis mine)
Wow! Satan even tied Adonai to the Sun and Yahweh to Saturn. I just now discovered that. Oh, what a tangled web he wove. Lots of things that are true were given a twist. We can sure tell that Satan knew a lot about things to come, and that he is the author of confusion. Babel means confusion. Nimrod, king of Shinar, meaning country of two rivers (Iraq, country of the Tigris and Euphrates), was worshipped as Saturn and as the Sun god.
On the side of the Talisman of Saturn that has the six-pointed star, there are also letters that meant to the Magi "REMPHA, (REMPHAN) THE PLANETARY GENIUS OF SATURN."
Re REMPHAN, Acts 7:37-43 says, "This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear. This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: TO WHOM OUR FATHERS WOULD NOT OBEY, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt, Saying unto Aaron, MAKE US GODS to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And THEY MADE A CALF in those days, AND OFFERED SACRIFICE UNTO THE IDOL, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands. Then GOD TURNED, AND GAVE THEM UP TO WORSHIP THE HOST OF HEAVEN; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness? Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of MOLOCH, AND THE STAR OF YOUR GOD REMPHAN, FIGURES WHICH YE MADE TO WORSHIP THEM: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon."
Amos 5:26-27 says, "But ye have born the tabernacle of your MOLOCH, AND CHIUN (Arabic for Saturn, also called REMPHAN) YOUR IMAGES, THE STAR OF YOUR GOD, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord".
Chiun (or REMPHAN) was the god Saturn in the Babylonian Mystery Religion set up by Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz at the Tower of Babel. Saturn stood for a hidden god, Satan, who was only revealed to the initiated. That sounds like the Masons. Lucifer is only revealed to those in the 33rd degree.
In Babylonian astrology, there seems to be an interchanging of the term Samas to either Saturn or the Sun, which is Shamash. Maybe this is why Nimrod (meaning subduer of the leopard) was also considered the Sun god. Tammuz also was the Sun god, mimicking Jesus, who is the true Son of God. To carry out the likeness, Semiramis said that Tammuz was killed by a wild boar and then came back to life. Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz were all considered equal parts of a triune god too.
Ex 20:3-5 gives us the first two of the ten commandments. The Lord said, "Thou shalt have NO OTHER GODS before me. THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANY THING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me".
Did they listen, take it to heart, and obey? No.
2Ki 17:12-17 says, "For they served idols, whereof the LORD had said unto them, Ye shall not do this thing. Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets. Notwithstanding THEY WOULD NOT HEAR...they followed vanity...and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should NOT do like them. And THEY LEFT ALL THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THEIR GOD, AND MADE THEM MOLTEN IMAGES, EVEN TWO CALVES, AND MADE A GROVE, AND WORSHIPPED ALL THE HOST OF HEAVEN, AND SERVED BAAL (Nimrod). And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger."
In Amos 5:25-27, the Lord said, "Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch (Molek, chief deity of the Ammonites and Phoenicians to whom some Israelites sacrificed their infants in the valley of Hinnom) and Chiun (Chiun = “an image,” idol, or statue of the Assyrian - Babylonian god of the planet SATURN) your images, THE STAR OF YOUR GOD, WHICH YE MADE TO YOURSELVES. Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD (YHWH), whose name is The God of hosts.
Before Rome was established, that area was called Saturnia, the city of Saturn. See Ovid (Fasti, lib. VI. II. 31-34, Vol. III, p. 342), Pliny (Historia Naturalis, lib. III. 5, p. 55), and Aurelius Victor (Origo Gentis Romanæ, cap. iii). Today, there is a Saturnia hot spring and spa in Tuscany.
The Saturnalia was kept from Dec. 17 to 23. They gave gifts to one another. The Saturnalia and the birth of Christ got mixed into Christmas on the 25th because the birthday of Tammuz was Dec. 25. Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets in September, not Dec. 25.
Sometimes twisted things get untwisted unexpectedly and a glimmer of truth shines through. In China, the planet Saturn was called THE PLANET OF THE SON OF HEAVEN. That's true if you think the SON OF HEAVEN is Jesus. Satan can't win all the time, and his downfall is coming soon.
