Adad Ordains Satan’s Day

THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER

   
Fourth Commandment pays homage to Saturn, Lucifer’s HQ planet in the Solar System

As Ishkur-Adad, the frontman Jehovah of the Exodus touched down on Mount Sinai in his sky vehicle, the sound of a siren (trumpet in the Bible) rent the air. We did elucidate at one point in time that this sky vehicle, typically translated as the “Glory of God” in the Bible, was actually KABOD in Hebrew. Zechariah Sitchin assists us in unpacking the term thus: “It will be helpful to trace the Akkadian and Sumerian roots from which the Hebrew term had derived.

While the Akkadian KABBUTTU meant ‘heavy, weighty,’ the similar-sounding KABDU (paralleling the Hebrew Kabod) meant ‘Wing-holder’ –  something to which wings are attached, or perhaps into which wings can retract. And the Sumerian term KIBADDU meant ‘to soar to a faraway place’.” Clearly, the Glory of God was a flying craft.  The prophet Ezekiel says the flying craft was enveloped in a cloud but it emitted a luminosity that shown through the cloud (EZEKIEL 10:4). When it was at full calibration, this luminosity had a harmful effect on those who came too close or simply touched the edge of a platform on which it rested. This was Adad’s way of both keeping humans at bay and embedding in them the sense of awe that “God dwells in unapproachable light”. 
      The Israelites were excited as the siren wail was a signal that they should ascend the mountain  and meet their god. Adad, however, had a rethink as the only  people he called up the mountain were Moses and Aaron. Moses and Aaron were told to maintain order amongst their people: the boundaries they had set should be maintained at all costs lest the people suffer the effects of the flying craft’s illumination if they came within a certain radius.  Adad now reckoned that there was no need for the entire crowd to  ascend the mountain as  addressing them through Moses would suffice. 
     Moses and Aaron were accordingly briefed by  Adad and Moses for one was electronically kitted out so that he and Adad would communicate wirelessly. He was also given a powerful loud speaker  with which he would relay Adad’s instructions to the congregation. Note that Moses and Aaron did not deal with Adad directly: they did so through the god’s officials. Since the Enlilites now rotated as a solitary god of the Jews, they didn’t want to be identified as that would give away the game. They wanted the Israelites to  embed the fallacy  that they only had one god when in fact several gods took turns to interact with them although in the greater majority of cases this was  Adad. 

THE FIRST THREE COMMANDMENTS

Having climbed down to the base of the mountain, Moses set about proclaiming what Adad was relaying to him using what the Bible describes as a SHOFAR in the original Hebrew, meaning “sound amplifier”. Exactly what language Adad used to communicate with Moses is not stated. We may assume that he used Hebrew in that Aliens are very adept at expeditiously capturing a language.

A hint on this versatility is furnished by Dr Jamisson Neruda, a renegade whistleblower who worked for ACIO (Advance Contact Intelligence Organisation),  a top-secret outfit that interfaces with ETs. Dr Neruda informs us that the Corteum, an ET race who originate from Sirius B, are capable of speaking “perfect English or French, Italian, Spanish, or most any other language for that matter. They’re very gifted linguists and can acquire average language skills in a matter of a few weeks, and operate as masters of the language within a few months. Their minds are like sponges …”

Speaking through Moses, the first thing Adad did was to spell out the now famous Ten  Commandments.  The Ten  Commandments were nothing novel: they were very familiar. They were  first adduced by Ningishzidda,  also known as Thoth, Enki’s genius son. In his book, THE BOOK OF THE DEAD, which is acknowledged as the world’s first complete book, Zidda lists the entire Ten Commandments in a passage titled Spell Number 125.

In fact, in The Book of the Dead, the ten declarations are not presented as universal codes of conduct: they are confessions a pharaoh made upon his coronation. What is  stated as “Thou Shall not kill” in the Bible” actually is  “I have not killed” in The Book of the Dead, and  “Thou shall not steal” is  “I have not stolen” in The Book of the Dead … and so forth and so on.   

Adad’s first three  commandments decreed monotheism as the new religious orientation of the  Jews (in Egypt they had worshipped several gods). The FIRST COMMANDMENT demanded that Israelites  worship only one god, Adad (though unbeknownst to the Israelites, “god” was a clan – the family of Jehovah-Enlil) because it was he who freed them from Egyptian bondage (EXODUS 20:1-2). Worshipping other gods was strictly prohibited because  Adad was a “jealous god” (EXODUS 20:6) who did not wish to share human adoration  with other gods. Who were the “other gods”? That we glean from the second commandment.

The SECOND COMMANDMENT further qualified the  first. The Israelites were banned from bowing to and therefore deifying “idols”. Like most biblical precepts, the term idols has been grossly misinterpreted by the Christian clergy. True, it means graven images – images carved in wood or sculpted in stone.  BUT THAT DID NOT MEAN THESE IMAGES WERE AN END IN THEMSELVES: THEY WERE SIMPLY A SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATION  OF THE REAL GOD (ANUNNAKI) WHO  WAS REVERED OR WORSHIPPED BY A PEOPLE.

As we keep repeating, our ancestors did not worship fanciful gods like religious “stalwarts” (read: “fanatics”)    of our day: they worshipped a god they had seen with their eyes or whose presence was demonstrable in one way or the other.  Since gods very rarely directly interacted with humans, humans devised a way of  invoking them in time of desperate need. This was in the form of graven images. For example, when Christians kneel down before a cross and utter prayers, they are not worshipping the cross as such: they are worshipping the spirit associated with the cross, that is, Jesus.

Adad’s emphasis in relation to the second commandment is instructive. He said no graven images were to be made whatsoever, “whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth” , EXODUS 20:4. This represents three categories of objects of worship – “other gods”. The heavenly or cosmic gods  obviously comprised of Anu, the King of the Sirian-Orion Empire; Antu, the Queen of the Sirian-Orion Empire; and the heavenly bodies.

The latter were planets, constellations, the moon,  and the sun  basically. Remember,  celestial bodies and constellations were symbolic of Anunnaki gods. For example, the sun was the celestial counterpart for Utu-Shamash. The moon was a symbol for Enki initially and Nannar-Sin latterly. As for constellations, Pisces represented Enki, Virgo represented Inanna-Ishtar, Taurus represented  Enlil,  Aries represented Marduk, etc.  In the case of planets, Mars was associated with Marduk, Neptune with Enki, Venus with Ninmah at first and Inanna-Ishtar in due course, Earth with Enlil, etc.

As for Earthly gods, these were  physical Anunnaki beings – the members of the ruling pantheon. Some of the Anunnaki gods had  symbolic equivalents that took the form of  animals. For example, Enki, Marduk, and Zidda were associated with the snake because their race evolved from the snake species. Enki was also associated with the goat because he once presided over the astrological Age of Capricorn, whose symbol is  a goat. Ninmah was associated with the cow. Enlil was represented by a bull. 

Coming to the matter of the sea, it is no secret that Enki was known as the god of the sea. He was thus represented by a fish or a dolphin. Marduk was represented by the crocodile, the equivalent of the enigmatic  Mus-Hus, his official emblem, because to the Egyptians it was a sacred animal and pharaohs were anointed with crocodilian oil (messeh, the source of the term “messiah”) at their enthronement. THUS ADAD BANNED THE MAKING OF GRAVEN IMAGES BECAUSE HE DIDN’T WANT THE ISRAELITES TO  DILUTE THEIR WORSHIP OF HIM WITH THAT OF ENKITE GODS.

Adad was aware that the Israelites were not fully converted to him. In fact, the greater majority of them hated him for his harshness and for demanding human sacrifice. As such, they were nostalgic of the gods they used to worship in Egypt, particularly Enkite gods and goddesses who were remarkably benevolent. It was therefore plausible that they could resort to making graven images of the likes of Enki and Zidda with a view to invoking these gods,  in the process relegating Adad to the very fringes of their devotion. It was to forestall such an eventuality that Adad banned graven images and not that they were inherently evil.  

In the THIRD COMMANDMENT, Israelites were  warned to  desist from bolstering  up  lies by using  Adad’s name, either to somehow defend themselves or elicit a favour or advantage.  This simply was misrepresenting the god’s name by way of an act of  corruption. This commandment largely applied to the leadership – the kings, the prophets,  and the priesthood – who, were the intermediaries between the Anunnaki god and  the nation of Israel and were therefore expected to be  aboveboard in all they said and did. 

The Israelite leadership, however, read so much into the  Third Commandment that THEY PROHIBITED THE VERY UTTERANCE OF  THE NAME YAHWEH OR ELOHIM. Instead, Adad and his fellow Enlilte gods were mostly referred to as Adonai.  This was Aten in Egyptian or Sumerian. Aten had several meanings depending on the context. In this context, however, it meant “The Transcendent One”. 

You will recall that that was how Moses referred to the planet Nibiru when he introduced  the Cult of the Aten as Pharaoh Akhenaten. In future,  Adonai would mainly apply to Nannar-Sin, who was the seniormost Enlilite of his generation. But Initially, Adonai was a general name for whichever god was directly interacting with the Israelites, who primarily was Adad.

ADAD HONOURS HIS GOD LUCIFER!

The FOURTH COMMANDMENT was the Sabbath commandment. The Jews were to observe the seventh day in a very special way by abstaining from all kind of work. This applied to slaves, maids, and visitors.  Even animals were not to  be put to work on this special day.     Note that  Adad did not say that he was to be worshipped on the Sabbath day. All he said was that the day had to be kept  holy, meaning it was to be dedicated to good and godly acts (as if he himself had any virtue in him). 

The idea thus of conducting worship services on the seventh day was the Jews’ own interpretation of  the Adad ordinance. A god could be worshipped on any day of the week, but the Sabbath was set aside as a dedicated worship day simply because all kind of work was prohibited, which enabled people to focus on invoking, exalting, and honouring their god.  

Why was the Sabbath declared a holy day? Adad did provide  a reason for that. He said it was the day on which he rested after he created the world.  All this was pure brainwash: neither Adad nor any of his fellow Anunnaki created the world. The Anunnaki were creatures like you and I are and were born just like you and I were. Therefore, the reason Adad advanced for hallowing the seventh day reeked of absolute falsity. What then  was the real reason for consecrating the Sabbath?

Well, Adad dedicated the Sabbath to the real creator of this world and whom he dutifully served, such as through the mass sacrifice of children he demanded from the Israelites.  This god of Adad was known as Lucifer.   Of course in so reverencing Lucifer, Adad had to use tact. He had to use symbology.  THIS SYMBOLOGY TOOK THE FORM OF THE PLANET SATURN, WHICH IS ACTUALLY THE PLANET OF SATAN, AS SATURDAY ACTUALLY  MEANS SATURN’S DAY!
    

HOW THE WORLD GLORIFIES SATURN

In Hebrew, Sabbath is SHABBAT. Shabbat derives from SHABTAI, which is planet Saturn in the same Hebrew. The Sabbath was therefore dedicated to  Saturn. Now, Saturn is the most sinister of all the planets in the Solar System. It is the headquarters of  Reptilian or demonic elements in our planetary system. It is not called Saturn by happenstance: it is deliberate. The name Saturn derives from SATU.  Satu (SETEN in Sumerian, SET or  SATAN in English, SHAITAN in Arabic, SETH in Hebrew) is a byword for prime evil. That’s why the Devil,  or Lucifer, is also referred to as Satan.

The first Satu was Marduk’s grandson Set. Set ’s name became synonymous with evil when he seized Canaan, which was then under the control of the Enlilites,   after pretending to have switched loyalties from the Enkites to the Enlilites. This was circa 8970 BC.   From that point onwards, Seten,  meaning “Truth Lord”, took on a new meaning – Satan the Devil. So when the ancients gave the name Saturn to the seventh major celestial body in the Solar System counting from the sun, they knew what they were talking about.

Saturn is said to be the second largest planet after Jupiter but that  is not exactly true. Saturn is the largest planet by volume of space occupied because of its enormous rings  which reaches far and wide, extending up to 120,000 km from Saturn’s equator.   The ancients were very much aware of this fact. The Sumerians, for instance, called it ANSHAR, meaning “Foremost of Heaven”, whereas Jupiter was called KINSHAR,  meaning “Foremost of Firm Lands”. 

In his writings, the great Greek philosopher Seneca says the astronomers known as Epigenes “estimate that the planet Saturn exerts the greatest influence upon all the movements of celestial bodies”. Writing either in the second or third century, the Roman historian Tacitus also said Saturn had the largest influence on  human life. Saturn’s overarching influence on Earthly affairs is evidenced by the  omnipresence of Saturn symbolism all around us.

This includes cube structures, such as the KAABA in Mecca, around which pilgrims move about like the rings that surround Saturn; the two black cubes at Ground Zero in New York, the scene of the infamous 911; and others in California, Germany, Denmark, Australia, and even the United Nations building. The most familiar Saturn symbols are seen in the form of corporate  logos, such as Toyota, Boeing, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser, and Google search engine.

One of the Saturn symbols that stare us in the face all-day-long is that of the Hexagon (six-pointed star). Very few people are aware that this denotes Saturn, which has a perennial hexagon storm that dominates its north pole.  The cube is actually a hexagon compacted into a three-dimensional shape. Individuals who represent certain eminent institutions also flaunt Saturn like a badge. The Pope, for instance, is in the habit of wearing a broad-brimmed capello hat, which denotes homage to Saturn.

Many a time, Pope Benedict was photographed wearing a mitre with a six pointed star, a hexagon, emblazoned on it – a clear-cut reverencing of Satan and his Solar System bastion, Saturn.  And when people graduate from varsity, what do they sport on their heads? A mortarboard – a flat square cap. Little do they know that the square hat is a bow to Saturn, including the black robe they turn out in. Black is the colour of Saturn, which in antiquity was known as the Black Sun. That’s why you have judges wearing black robes and people wearing black at funerals: it is all salutation to Saturn.

AND PRACTICALLY EVERY MARRIED MAN OR WOMAN  IS A UNWITTING WORSHIPPER OF THE PLANET SATURN AND THEREFORE SATAN. Saturn is known as the Lord of the Rings. The ring that adorns a married couple’s fingers is the archetypal symbol of Saturn. No wonder many marriages end in divorce because they are sealed by some trinket that glorifies the Devil.

SATURN AS THE MAN-EATING KRONOS

In the so-called Greek mythology (which actually constitute dramatised accounts of real historical happenings), the god Saturn was also known  as KRONOS. In his Kronos guise, Saturn was  the god of time, the reason we have such words as chronometer (a timepiece) and chronology (a time sequence).  In medieval paintings, Kronos was depicted in several forms (since uniformity would have been too obvious to the masses). In one vein, he was shown as the Grim Reaper – the skeletal angel of death – wielding a scythe.

In another vein, he was shown as an old man with a white beard riding a cloud.  Today, during every festive season,  Kronos shows up with great pomp and circumstance in the guise of  Santa Claus, the so-called Father Christmas, lovingly  holding a baby.  That by no means symbolises patriarchal love  for children: it is a metaphor for the Devil’s appetite for the blood of children. When we see  Father Christmas cuddling an infant, it is actually Satan salivating over his favourite meal.  

In Greek mythology,  Kronos ate his own children.  That’s why human sacrifice, particularly of pre-pubesecent children,  was such a common feature in antiquity. When the Old Testament gods, such as Adad, demanded human sacrifice, it was to feed the insatiable appetite of their god Lucifer. In the Bible, all guises of Saturn/Satan are presented. He’s the Angel of Death who killed the Israelites’ firstborns in Egypt. He’s the Molech to whom Canaanite children were sacrificed in a bonfire. Molech, as we have already underscored, was Ninurta, Enlil-Jehovah’s firstborn son. Which planet did the Sumerians associate Ninurta with? Saturn!

It is said the Devil hides in plain  sight. The truth of the matter is that he doesn’t even pretend to hide at all in our day and age. Those who dutifully and devoutly serve him, the Illuminati,  keep thrusting  him right in our faces day in and day out. In the Matrix movie trilogy, for example,  confirmation is made of  a point we have been trying to put across all along – that this universe is Lucifer’s creation. The Matrix is another reference to this Internet-like, counterfeit universe. In the Matrix trilogy, the creator of the Matrix is revealed as an old bearded man – the Ancient of Days. His title in the movie is actually  the “Architect”. It’s no coincidence that Freemasons refer to their ultimate master as the Grand Architect of the Universe,  aka Lucifer.

Flight To France

24th November 2021
THE “DRAGON” PURSUES THE “WOMAN”

The Lord’s wife seeks refuge in a European  “Wilderness”

In March 37 AD, General Atiku, Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar died after 23 years in office. He was succeeded by his nephew and adoptive heir Gaius Caligula. 

Caligula had forged a fraternal bond with Herod Agrippa, a grandson of Herod the Great, whilst hitherto cash-strapped Agrippa worked at Emperor Tiberius’ court in some capacity. It was on the basis of this mutual affinity that Caligula installed Agrippa as King of the Middle East territories his uncle Phillip the Tetrarch, who passed on in AD 34, had ruled over.

In 39 AD, Agrippa’s regal tentacles spread even wider when he was given the Herod Antipas domains after he politically poisoned the latter to Caligula. Thus it was that Agrippa became Rome’s client King of the whole of Palestine minus Judea. Meanwhile, the tiny territory of Chalcis in Syria was given to Agrippa’s brother Herod, best known to history as Herod of Chalcis, on the pleadings of Agrippa. 

It so happened, General, that during the rather short, six-year reign of Agrippa, four Jewish High Priests took turns in office, all appointed by he himself as per authority vested in him by the Emperor. One particular appointment, of a Boethusian High Priest at the expense of the incumbent Mathias Ben Ananus (the apostle Matthew), rankled with radical Jews.

Mathias was replaced in 43 AD, when he was scarcely one year in office. Given that the Boethusians held the Davidic dynasty in contempt, it goes without saying that the apostolate band were irate. In the event, Simon Peter and James the son of Zebedee with typical Zealot radicalism  conveniently saw common cause with Simon Zelotes and set about plotting the assassination of Agrippa. 

Somehow, General, the Herod establishment got wind of the plot and Herod of Chalcis had James executed and Simon Peter thrown into the slammer pending his own turn at the scaffold.  Simon Zelotes and Theudas Barabbas were quick to hit back. First, Simon used his guile and connections to have Peter spirited out of prison, whereupon Peter sought refuge in Rome.

Simon Zelotes is the “Angel of the Lord” spoken of in the relevant passage (ACTS 12:7) as  that was his emeritus title as one of the Essene top brass. Second, Simon Zelotes had Agrippa assassinated by way of snake poison. Although Simon Zelotes got away with this intrigue, Barabbas, General, was not so lucky: as he made his getaway across the Jordan River and bogged down by age-related lethargy, he was seized and summarily executed by decapitation on the orders of Herod of Chalcis.  

Simon Zelotes set up a new base in Cyprus, leaving his step-daughter Mary Magdalene in the lurch in Judea. What would be her fate, General, now that she was associated with a fugitive from justice?

SCHISMS IN THE CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT

The accession and rather untimely demise of King Agrippa, General Atiku,  had quite significant ramifications on the nascent Christian movement. Of particular import was the relocation of the Qumran community to Damascus in Syria. Indeed, the Dead Sea Scrolls’ Damascus Document makes a point of highlighting “the New Covenant in the Land of Damascus”, which now the Essenes propagandised as the place where the awaited Jewish Messiah would appear and not in Jerusalem as the Old Testament prophets had foretold.   

The change of scene, General, was spearheaded by James the Just, the immediate younger brother of Jesus and the incumbent leader of the Christian movement. It was necessitated  by the fear that the perpetually impecunious Agrippa (whilst he was alive, that is), who at some stage had been declared bankrupt, might eventually deplete the Qumran kitty (a portion of which the Herods were entitled to), of which James was the custodian following the ignominious death of Judas Iscariot.

James had also served notice that the Herods would  have no part to play in a sovereign Israel, that the conduct of its affairs would be the preserve solely of the Davidic dynasty, which he now headed. As if to underscore this apartness,  James even went on to reprise the Star &  Sceptre political tag team with Theudas Barabbas (before his assassination), which harked back to a similar partnership of yesteryears between his father Joseph and the same Barabbas, who was still revered as the iconic Zealot revolutionary.  

The likes of Simon Peter (who had returned from Rome a free man since his alleged crime had lapsed with the death of King Agrippa as was the practice those days),  however, set up their base at Antioch in Syria, which suggests that there was a bit of dissonance between James and Peter at the time. Peter was reinforced by Paul and the latter’s personal doctor Luke, the author of the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts. The Peter faction was also anti-Herod but in its formative stage it touted Peter as the successor to Jesus at the expense of  James. 

In sum, General, there was a three-way split in the Christian movement after Jesus went into obscurity. This was the James party at Damascus, the Peter party at Antioch, and the Simon Zelotes party in Cyprus. It was the Peter party that with the benefit of hindsight stole the thunder in that it was at Antioch that members of The Way began to call themselves Christians. This was in AD 44. 

MARY MAGDALENE IN FRANCE

Meanwhile, General Atiku, Mary Magdalene was in a very precarious position. At the time, she was already pregnant with Jesus’ third child, having conceived in December AD 43.  It is not clear though whether she too had incurred the wrath of the Herods in view of what her step- father Simon Zelotes had done to King Agrippa, but taking precautions, she sought the protection  of Agrippa’s eldest son, Agrippa II. Agrippa II was only 17 years at the time and was based in Rome under the auspices of Claudius, who had become Roman Emperor in AD 41.

A former student of the Apostle Paul, Agrippa II was well disposed toward the Jesus family and so he readily acquiesced to Mary’s entreaty, whereupon he arranged for her safe passage to the famed Herodian estate in Gaul, France, in collaboration with his other brother Aristobulus. It was in Gaul that the brothers Herod Archelaus and Herod Antipas had by turns been banished by the Roman Emperor after their ouster in AD 6 and 39 respectively .  

Mary Magdalene, General,  was not all alone on the ship that conducted her to France. She was accompanied by her step-father Simon Zelotes; her mother Helena-Salome; the apostle Philip; the three sisters of Jesus; the wife of James the Just; and Trophimus, who is mentioned in ACTS 20:4; ACTS 21:29; and 2 TIMOTHY 4:20. In his book The Life of Mary Magdalene, Archbishop Rabanus Maurus partly documents the voyage thus: “And favoured by an easterly wind they travelled on across the Sea between Europe and Africa, leaving the city of Rome and all the land of Italy to the right. Then, happily changing course to the right, they came to the city of Marseilles in the Gaulish province of Vienne.” Upon arrival in France, Mary Magdalene had the privillege of being welcomed by the Queen of Marseilles. Once in 

France, Simon Zelotes, who  became known there as Lazarus the Great One, wasted no time in setting up a mission in Provence in south eastern France.

MARY MAGDALENE Vs ROME

Unbeknownst to much of Christendom, including the Christian clergy itself, General, the fate of Mary Magdalene is cryptically documented in the Book of Revelation! It is unfortunate that Revelation is placed last in the New Testament corpus when by rights it should have come immediately  after the Book of Acts and not after the  21 epistles in between since it is actually a continuation of the Jesus story. Although it is called the Revelation of Saint John, that is a misnomer.

It is a revelation by Jesus Christ himself, who we now know was very much in existence and in circulation more than fifty years after his sham crucifixion. That is exactly what REVELATION 1:1 states, although Christians have naively taken this to be no more than  figurative language. It was Jesus in his physical, blood-and-flesh  form who related much of the contents of Revelation to the apostle John, the literal author of the book. Jesus dictated the account; John  simply was the scribe. 

The relegation of Revelation (literally “The Unveiling”, the true meaning of the Greek world apocalypse from which the term “Revelation” is translated) to the very extremity of the biblical canon, General,  was contrived by Roman Emperor Constantine as the teachings of the Roman Church were founded, primarily, on the writings of Simon Peter and the apostle Paul. Says authoritative historian Laurence Gardner in his book The Magdalene Legacy:  The Jesus and Mary Bloodline Conspiracy: “At first glance it appears baffling that The Revelation was included in the New Testament at all, since it follows the post-Resurrection lives of Jesus, Mary Magdalene and their offspring through a balance of the 1st century.

However, the inclusion of The Revelation proved to be a remarkable strategy in that its very esoteric nature enabled Rome to turn it to considerable advantage by misrepresenting its text from the pulpits; this, of course, was at a time when the general populace did not have Bibles to read for themselves.” Gardner goes on to say, “The Church has done its best to put people off this book ever since by portraying it as a sinister work of foreboding and doom. By way of propaganda from the 1662 Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith, even the very word apocalypse has become emblematic of disaster.”

REVELATION CHAPTER 12, General,  is particularly pertinent with regard to the saga of Mary Magdalene. It talks about a pregnant woman  “clothed  with the sun” and with a “wreath of 12 stars on her head” (Verses 1 and 2).  This woman is being pursued and tormented by a  “great fiery-red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads seven diadems” (Verse 3). The dragon’s aim is to “devour her child when it is born” (Verse 4). The woman “fled into the wilderness, there where she has a place made ready  by God” (Verse 6).

Despite her trials and tribulations, the woman at long last “brought forth a son, a male, who is about to be shepherding all the nations with an iron club. And her child is snatched away to God and to His throne” (Verse 5). The dragon, though, will never relent: it  is “angry with the woman, and came away to do battle with the rest of her seed, who are keeping the precepts of God and who have the testimony of Jesus” (Verse 17).

As we  have reiterated time and again,  General, much of the New Testament was written  in a coded language with a view to keeping the Romans in the dark. Thus in the Book of Revelation, Mary Magdalene is simply referred to as “the woman” and Rome as “the dragon” or “the serpent”.  History documents that the Romans did display a reddish dragon on their imperial banner.  Moreover, Rome itself was known as the City of the Seven Kings in that this was the total number of Roman emperors before the empire became a Republic in 509 BC.

The woman is of royal pedigree because she is “clothed with the sun”,  an  age-old symbol of both royalty and divinity. The 12 stars on her head obviously refers to the 12 tribes of Israel, for whom she was the de facto queen being the wife of Jesus,  the Davidic King, and the wreath on her head denotes the fact of the nation of Israel’s enduring  subjugation to the Roman yoke.    The “wilderness” in this context is France, where Mary Magdalene as related above sought refuge with the assistance of Agrippa II.   

The pursued woman did give birth to a male child, which Mary Magdalene did as we shall relate in the next instalment. As a youngster, the child himself met no harm, but his relations, the broader Jesus family and their scions,  who became known as the Desposyni or the Sangreal, were continuously harassed  by Roman emperors, with some of them put to death, a detail we shall go into at the appropriate stage. 

Curiously, General, the Revelation passage indicates that the woman was transported to safety on “two wings of a large vulture”. This suggests an aircraft, and a hideous, military-type for that matter,   and not a ship as official history documents. This is not exactly far-fetched considering that the Anunnaki, who flew in aerial vehicles, have been ruling Earth from behind the scenes despite their official departure in the 6th  century BC. If Mary Magdalene had been earmarked as the progenitor of the planet’s blue blood, which she indeed was, then the Anunnaki had cause to ferry her to France in an aeroplane to make doubly sure she got to France in  one piece. It may explain, General, why upon her arrival in France she was welcomed by no less a figure than the Queen of Marseilles herself.

24th November 2021

When I was growing up dinosaurs didn’t exist.  I don’t mean I’m so old I pre-date the days of the prehistoric beast, simply that in those days, nobody bar a few nerdy scientists, gave them much of a second thought.  

But in 1993 all that changed.  Movie buffs amongst you will immediately recognise that year as the release year of the original Spielberg Jurassic Park movie.  That’s not to say there hadn’t been films portraying these ancient beasts before – several had come and gone, seemingly without a trace, the oldest being from 1933 and filmed in black and white.  But what set Jurassic Park apart, aside from the impressive special effects and the sprinkling of magic Spielberg dust, was the relatively recent discovery of DNA and its genetic significance.

The scriptwriters exploited this concept with the quasi-credible discovery of a living lizard species, derived from dinosaur DNA, captured from an ancient mosquito, and preserved for millennia in a chunk of amber.  From there several other species are cloned and kept on an island which acts as a dinosaur game reserve, now open to the public.  But that wouldn’t have made much of a story, so of course some of the more dangerous dinosaurs had to escape and cause mayhem and murder in the modern world.

The film grossed over a billion dollars and won 3 Oscars for sound and visual effects.  And more importantly it generated so much interest in dinosaurs that the study of palaeontology experienced a record increase in applications.

So that’s where all the dinosaur hype and fascination started and since then it has spawned more movies from the same franchise, animated series such as Ice Age, and  led to a global fascination with finding out more about these beasts of the past.  

But only recently something quite fascinating emerged concerning these creatures, and that is that they began life as much smaller creatures and it was a major climate event on earth which led to their monster growth.  This finding is the result of a study between scientists from the UK’s Birmingham university in conjunction with their Chinese counterparts at the China Institute of Mining & Technology.   Their joint team of researchers recently presented compelling evidence that massive volcanic events probably helped the dinosaurs diversify and thrive, reaching their monumental sizes. 

Their results were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and explain that the Triassic Period, which began roughly 250 million years ago, was a time of massive ecological change after the largest mass extinction event on record.  Earlier dinosaurs had been skinnier, more reptilian, less of the massive, marauding Spielberg monsters but it was during this time period that dinosaurs diversified until they became wondrous beasts such as T. Rex and Triceratops, dominating ecosystems all over earth. 

Scientists looked at a phase spanning 2 million years during the Triassic Period known as the Carnian Pluvial Episode or CPE, ‘pluvial’ deriving from the Latin word for rain, meaning it was a period of warm, moist, cloudy meteorological activity . During that episode, from 234 million to 232 million years ago there was a huge increase in global temperature, humidity and rainfall — a climate often referred to as a “mega-monsoon.”

Researchers analysed sediment and plant fossil evidence from a lake in Northern China and were able to match four intense phases of volcanic activity with the changes of the Carnian Pluvial Episode.  The study links the timing of the episode with four distinct peaks in mercury levels, a well-established indicator of volcanic activity,  which led to changes in the vegetation. 

“We’re often able to link volcanism to global warming, but our study is unusual in that we’ve also linked it to periods of intense rainfall,” said Jason Hilton, a paleobotanist at the University of Birmingham in England and co-author of the study. “With each pulse of volcanism, we see an increase in plants adapted to wet and aquatic… settings.” Jing Lu, a researcher at the China University of Mining and Technology and also a co-author of the study, added that these eruptions “were powerful enough to drive evolutionary processes during the Triassic. During the episode, plant species that couldn’t adapt to the more humid environment went extinct, as did a number of animal species, from large reptilian herbivores on land to small gastropods in the water. “These changes freed up ecological space for other groups of organisms such as dinosaurs, to thrive”

But every dog, and every dinosaur, has their day and the dinosaurs also faded away, most likely due to a massive meteor strike on the surface of the earth in what is now modern-day Florida, which set up a massive tsunami and eventually resulted in a global Ice Age, temperatures too cold for dinosaurs to survive.

If there’s a moral to all this paleo-historical research it is that earth’s climate is governed by many factors, one of which may indeed by petrol fumes in the atmosphere but many of which are completely beyond our control.  Another massive meteor strike may occur next week or it may not. We could see a sudden surge in volcanic activity again or we might not.  But most of all the lesson is that talk of what is good or otherwise for the planet is based on a false premise.  Whatever happens on the surface of the earth, it keeps on spinning round and round the sun every 365 ¼ days  as it has done since the Big Bang and there is  no reason to suppose it will cease to do so, even if it were to transform into a an arid desert in its entirety.  That is the embodiment of perpetual motion, a force which man has yet to master.

No, what people really mean is ‘good for trying to keep the planet just the way we like it’ which is rather different and may be a complete impossibility.  Indeed mankind, like the dinosaur, may become extinct at some point in the future as part of the natural way of the world.

The planet, though, will be fine!

Heaven on Earth

9th November 2021

 Jesus is admitted into the “Kingdom of Heaven”, which was a metaphor for the Essene priesthood

At Qumran, General Atiku, there were a number of caves on the cliffside (Qumran overlooked the Dead Sea), located  not very far from the site where the crucifixion had taken place.  Two of these caves were particularly important. One was Cave 4. Cave 4 was called Abraham’s Bosom. It was the burial cave for the Davidic King and the Pope, the Father of the Essene community. Across the chasm from Cave 4 was Cave 8. This was the burial cave of the Davidic Crown Prince. It was also known as Paradise.

Putting politics aside, the rightful Davidic King was Jesus and the Crown Prince was his immediate young brother James. Thus Cave 8 was owned and taken care of by James. The Dead Sea Scrolls confirm this. One text thereof, called the Copper Scroll, says ‘there was a tomb of the son of the third Great One”. In the Essene hierarchy, the third-ranking person was the Davidic Messiah, Jesus. But Cave 8 would not have belonged to his son in that he had no heirs yet. As such, it belonged to James, who was next in line till Jesus produced a heir.  Also in Pesher, the term “son of” meant “next in line” or “deputy”.      

Cave 8 had another purpose – a storage of money that was in the custody of James.  This was Essene initiation fees paid by Gentiles. It was entrusted to the care of the more cosmopolitan Davidic princes, who directly received the money because coming from Gentiles it was regarded as unclean money. Because James was in charge of these funds, he was cynically referred to as “The Rich Man”. This explains why Joseph of Arimathea (James) is characterised in the gospels as a rich man.

Cave 8 and Cave 7 were adjoined. The two caves had one entrance through the side of the roof, with steps leading from the entrance down to the floor of the cave. The entrance was covered with a huge stone that only people on the outside could roll away. The remains of the two joined caves can be seen even today in the ruins of Qumran. When Jesus was brought down from the crucifixion tree by James, he was laid in Cave 8 in keeping with his Davidic status. Judas and Simon Zelotes were laid in Cave 7. Note, General, that had he actually died, Jesus would have been placed in Cave 4.

Since this was the eve of the Sabbath, guards were posted around the caves to see to it that when the Sabbath took effect at midnight, Sabbath rules were not infringed upon in any way, shape or form. Ananus, the youngest son of former Jerusalem Temple High Priest Annas, was one of those who stood guard. In particular, he wanted to ensure that none of the three men in the tomb was removed during the Sabbath. He was to alternate with Theudas Barabbas, who had been strategically posted there as shall become clear shortly. 

THE DEATH OF JUDAS

At midnight, when Ananus took leave of his vigil and Theudas Barabbas replaced him, the latter stole into the cave (of course he had help to remove the huge stone cover). In the Passion story, Barabbas is disguised under the name Nicodemus (meaning “Conquering One,” exactly as Barabbas was hyped in his capacity as a leading Zealot revolutionary). The gospel of John says Nicodemus brought with him myrrh and aloes. From the nature and workings of these herbs, General, it is easy to tell what exactly transpired in Cave 8. 

Myrrh is used as a sedative (a drug that calms a patient, easing agitation and permitting sleep). This of course was used on Simon Zelotes, who along with Judas had been brought down from the crucifixion trees fully conscious. Both had received substantial scourging from the Roman soldiers and were therefore in acute pain. They badly needed some sleep as a form of provisional escape from the pain.       

Aloes are a strong and fast-acting purgative (a substance used to induce rapid bowel movements so that the bowels are quickly emptied).  No doubt these were used on Jesus to expel the poison that he had been fed as he hung on the tree. This was a task to which Theudas Barabbas as head of the Theraputae was best suited. The Theraputae specialised in knowledge of medicines and poisons, including snake poison. In fact, one of their assassination “weapons” was snake poison. In 44 AD, for instance,   Herod Agrippa I was murdered by the Zealots with snake poison. In his second volume, the Acts of the Apostles, Luke ascribes Agrippa’s death to having been “eaten with worms”. The term worms was a metaphor for snakes and snakes was a metaphor for the Theraputae top brass.   

Now, the emplacement of Jesus, Judas, and Simon Zealotes in the cave, General, was not only about hoodwinking Pilate. It was primarily about fulfilling a ritual. This was excommunication of the three from the Essene fold. However, the excommunication of Jesus and Simon in particular did not have the blessings of Herod Antipas, who was very close to Simon and held Jesus in high esteem, who he recognised as the bona fide Davidic King.

So Antipas had schemed with Simon Zelotes that while in the cave, he should reclaim the status of  Pope, currently held by Nathaniel, and invoke papal powers to  reinstate both and Jesus and he himself. This had to be done within three days of the crucifixion as beyond that excommunication would be irrevocable. This explains, General, why there were such frantic efforts to medically attend to the men in the cave. 

The herbs and therapeautic methods employed by Barabbas worked like a charm and the following day Simon and Jesus felt much better. Accordingly, Simon Zelotes wasted no time in reclaiming the papacy and exercised it by lifting the excommunication of  Jesus and he himself.   This gesture was communicated to the Jewish establishment by Barabbas. Sadly, Judas Iscariot, General, received the short end of the stick.

He never benefitted from the medical attention Jesus and Simon received. Simon denounced him as a traitor for betraying his colleagues. The adjoining cave – Cave 7 – had a ventilational window. Judas, who had been weakened by scourging, was thrown out the window. Hurtling headlong down the cliff, he landed on some jagged rocks and with his stomach punctured his bowels spilt out.  His death is recorded partly accurately by Luke in ACTS 1:18.    

SIMON FORMS OPPOSITION PARTY

Early on the morning of the first Sunday after the Passover Sabbath, Mary Magdalene, pregnant with Jesus’ first child, pitched up at Cave 7. She could have come on Saturday but movements of a certain radius were forbidden on Sabbath Day. Mary as the wife of Jesus was anxious as to his condition: she wanted to ensure that he indeed was safe, that he had indeed survived the crucifixion ruse. 

The gospels say she encountered two angels. Of one such angel, MATTHEW 28:3 says: “His countenance was like lightning and his raiment white as snow.” This, General,  is either cryptic language or simply a distortion on the part of the translators. We already know by now that Simon Zelotes was nicknamed “Lightning”. We also have seen that he had at this juncture challenged   Nathaniel for the status of Essene high priest, that is, that  of  the Archangel Michael, and so had garbed himself in priestly attire with a view to reinstating to the Essene fold both Jesus and he. Thus, the correct translation should read, “His countenance was like that of Simon Zelotes in his priestly vestments”. 

MATTHEW 28:2 reads, “There was a great earthquake and an angel appeared”. Ancient records do not mention a single earthquake in Palestine in the first century. Once again, General, this was pure allegorical language. Earthquake was another of the nicknames of Theudas Barabbas. He was an angel because Simon Zelotes had designated him his No. 2 in the Essene hierarchy, that is, the Angel Gabriel. Thus, the two angels Mary saw were Simon Zelotes and Theudas Barabbas. 

Mary also saw another man who at first she mistook for a gardener. Garden was another name for Cave 8. It was likened to the Garden of Eden, or Paradise – another of its nicknames – because the person in its charge, James the brother of Jesus, became the second Adam when he challenged Jesus for the status of the Davidic King. James was thus the gardener Mary thought she had seen. But it wasn’t James: it was Jesus. Apparently, Jesus and James looked very much alike. 

Realising that it was Jesus and not James, Mary was overcome with emotion and fervidly reached out to hug him but Jesus kept her at bay. Why, General?  Because according to Essene dynastic protocols, she was not, as a pregnant spouse, allowed physical contact with her husband for at least three years. 

All in all, General, the three men at  Cave 8 had, with the blessings of  Herod Antipas,  declared themselves as the heads of the new Essene shadow council of the 12 in opposition to the official one led by Nathaniel pending official elections. Simon Zelotes was the shadow Michael; Barabbas the shadow Gabriel; and Jesus the shadow Sariel. But it would take six more months before they became formally so. 

JESUS FINALLY IS PRIEST-KING

Although the so-called crucifixion took place in the relative quiet and seclusion of Qumran, General, it was not meant to be kept under wraps for long. Pontius Pilate wanted to demonstrate to his subjects that the key people in the AD 32 uprising had been dealt with decisively. The crucifixion though was publicly announced after the Passover celebrations were done with. This was tactical on the part of Pilate: he did not wish to foolishly provoke another uprising at a time when Jerusalem was teeming with the highly radical Galilean pilgrims. 

By the time the crucifixion became common knowledge, however, General,  Jesus was sufficiently fit to make appearances to people who were close to him – his family members and his so-called disciples. He would later appear to a gathering of over 500 at Qumran, most of whom were Diaspora Essenes.  To those who did not know about the crucifixion ruse, he had conquered death.

He was therefore hailed as a veritable Messiah. Voices now clamoured to make him Priest-King – the Melchizedek, the very status that he had laid claim to and that had put him at odds with the Jerusalem establishment. Jesus was careful though in his post-crucifixion appearances: he tactfully picked his audience and cautiously timed his showings. He didn’t wish Pilate to get wind of the fact that the crucifixion was a hoax. In fact, very few Jews were aware he had survived the crucifixion. 

Meanwhile, General, Simon Zelotes decided to make political capital out of what had transpired. In his campaign for the papacy, he boasted that it was he who was responsible for “the miracle in the tomb”. Hence, his marks of respect too grew exponentially. From that point on, he became known as “Simon Magus”, that is, Simon the magician. With his popularity reaching such dizzying heights, he was in September 33 AD elected as Pope, thus replacing Nathaniel.

With his accession to the papacy, he decided to heed the wishes of the people and have Jesus installed as the Melchizedek. This event is what has come to be known as the Ascension although it has been wrongly interpreted as   a physical entry into Heaven,   the abode of God. It is captured by Luke in ACTS 1:9, which reads, “After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight”.

The incident, General, is nothing more than the admission of Jesus into the priesthood as Priest-King of Israel. The “Kingdom of Heaven” was the inner sanctum of the Essene priesthood. Jesus was conveyed into this inner sanctum by his brother James, who now unequivocally recognised him as such, and ordained by Simon Zelotes and Theudas Barabbas (the “two men who stood by in white apparel” as per ACTS 1:1011). It was the Exodus imagery at play here General. “Cloud”  was another title of James.

It was a cloud that had led the ancient Israelites into the Promised Land (EXODUS 13:21-22) and the appearance of God on Mount Sinai had been accompanied not just by thunder and lightning but by a cloud as well (EXODUS 19:6). Thus, the terms “Thunder” (Nathaniel); “Lightning” (Simon Zelotes); “Earthquake” (Theudas Barabbas); and “Cloud” (James) were retained as symbolic designations in the Essene community. 

If Jesus didn’t die in AD 33, what was his life like in subsequent years and when did he actually die? Thanks to the Pesher device, this we can partly glean from the book of  Acts, the Pauline epistles, and the book of  Revelation.
