The Essenes were Ormus adepts and so was one of their luminaries called Jesus
I take it for granted that we all have heard or read about the so-called Phoenix, a bird that restored itself to life every time it died. The Phoenix, it is said, never existed: it is a mythical bird. This mythical bird straddles several ancient cultures, including the Greek, Egyptian, Arabian, Chinese and Japanese. The Egyptians referred to it as the BENNU BIRD, the Chinese as the FENG HUANG, and the Japanese as the HOU-OU.
Typically, myths are peculiar to a particular culture. If a myth is encountered in practically every corner of the globe, like the Phoenix is, then it behooves us to question whether it is indeed a myth and not a real thing or event which has assumed a mythical status all because of misunderstandings about it that came to proliferate with the passage of time.
This is the myth of the Phoenix in a nutshell: The bird was not a biologically fruitful species like all other creatures are. It was a single-entity species. There was always one Phoenix at any particular point in time, which had a golden or red plumage. The bird would live to up to 500 years or more. Then when owing to old age it was staring death in the face, it would gather twigs and spices and build a nest. It would then squat patiently in the nest and wait for the sun’s rays to set it on fire, whereupon it would be consumed to ashes.
But no sooner had the fire extinguished than a worm crawled out of the ashes to give rise to a new, reincarnated Phoenix. The cycle would keep repeating itself from generation to generation. But the fact of the matter is that the story of the Phoenix is no myth. It is an allegory – something real but presented in a roundabout, fable-like way. Albeit, the Phoenix was not a bird. IT WAS A CODE NAME FOR ORMUS.
Just like the Phoenix rises from destruction in a blaze of rebirth and new light, Ormus is associated with the gaining of higher degrees of consciousness and perception once one has partaken of it. You literally become a brand new man with sound health and expanded knowledge horizons. The emblematisation of Ormus as an eagle-like bird called the Phoenix and not any other creature is no coincidence. I’m sure you are aware by now that the ancients referred to Anunnaki astronauts as eagles primarily and as falcons secondarily.
In the eyes of mankind, the Anunnaki were deemed to possess eternal life since they hardly aged and no one saw them die from natural causes. The belief was that every time the Anunnaki flew in a rocket (which was also called an eagle), they went to “Heaven” (the planet Nibiru), where they partook of the Water of Life and the Food of Life. They thus returned to Earth rejuvenated and all hale and hearty. That the rocket/eagle was a symbol of eternal life was the reason the life-renewing Phoenix bird/Ormus was envisaged as an eagle too.
ALCHEMY WAS ABOUT ORMUS
Just as the term Phoenix was used as a cryptic reference to Ormus, the term alchemy was also used as a cryptic reference to the process of producing Ormus from any of the Platinum metal group. Alchemy derives from the Arabic term AL-KHAME, meaning “blackness” and is defined by those in the know as “the science which overcomes the blackness (emptiness in terms of knowledge), or that which enlightens through intuitive perception” – exactly as Ormus does. The general public were sold a dummy – that alchemy entailed converting base metals such as tin, lead, or zinc to gold. This of course is possible.
In 1980, US scientists produced gold from bismuth, an element that is just next to lead on the Periodic Table. However, the quantity of gold the process yielded was so minuscule to a point of being inconsequential. The process was so prohibitively costly that just to produce one ounce of gold, one quadrillion dollars (1 followed by 15 zeroes) would have to be spent. The going rate for gold at the time was $560 per ounce. Last year, Chinese scientists turned copper (which is much closer to gold on the periodic table than base metals) into almost pure gold, but this gold still fell short of vintage gold as it retained certain properties of copper, such as density for instance.
When the ancients talked about alchemy, what they meant and which was a closely guarded secret was turning gold into monoatomic gold dust – Ormus. Although Ormus is made from gold (or any of the Platinum metals), it has properties distinct from the metal gold. So it’s practically a different substance altogether. In the coded language of the ancient adepts, the mundane person (the occultically unenlightened one) was characterised as lead, zinc, or any of the base metals because he was basically ignorant and therefore benighted.
On the other hand, a person who partook of Ormus was referred to as being in the golden state because Ormus had conferred on him very profound intellectual, spiritual, and metaphysical insights. Thus the process of turning a raw being knowledgewise into an intellectually polished, highly knowledgeable one was called alchemy – turning a base metal into gold.
WORSHIP WAS WORKSHIP
Coming back to the highlight of last week’s piece, the WM Flinders Petrie expedition which came upon an Ormus manufacturing chamber in the ancient Temple of Hathor at Serabit El Khadim on Mount Sinai in 1904, many a people were puzzled that a place of worship should double as a metallurgical workshop. To the people of our day, that may sound contradictory and even sacrilegious, but in antiquity in this part of the world, that was very much the norm.
Temples initially were no churches at all. They were an Anunnaki god’s residence. A temple was not a place of worship: IT WAS A PLACE OF WORKSHIP. The original Semitic term which in time came to mean worship was actually AVOD and it simply meant “work”. A temple thus was not a place where a god simply resided: it was a place where mankind served him, that is, worked for him just like people work in state houses or palaces in the service of the president or a monarch.
With time, however, when the Anunnaki gods became self-effacing having withdrawn from day-to-day interaction with humans as a deliberate strategy to create the mystique of a true, transcendental deity, temples as we know them today started to spring up. Even then, they were not strictly a place where worship services were conducted: THEY ALSO HAD WINGS HOUSING A KIND OF WORKSHOP PRESIDED OVER BY CRAFTSMEN.
The nature of the craft that obtained in here was not simply ordinary craft work such as woodwork or metalwork; it was work pertaining to special esoteric knowledge referred to as KYNNING, a term stemming from the biblical Cain, mankind’s first artificer of metals. (It is noteworthy that the other term for a Freemason is craftsman and Masonic practice is called the craft! Freemasonry began far much earlier than it is reckoned to be and it embodies a great deal more “secrets of the craft” than we can conceive.)
Those who were privy to this kind of knowledge were referred to as “CRAFTY” or “CUNNING” . Of course these terms today carry a somewhat ignoble connotation but in those days they simply meant an artisan who by the nature of his specialty was counted upon to keep the knowledge thereof secret and only impart it to what were called initiates – privilleged apprentices. One such secret knowledge was alchemy, the manufacture of Ormus from gold mainly, as the Petrie finding with regard to the Temple of Hathor clearly attests. This special craft work (Ormus-making) was actually operative even in the time of Jesus.
ESSENES DEALT IN AND EMPLOYED ORMUS
In The Jesus Papers series of 64 articles, we spoke at length about a reclusive Jewish sect known as the Essenes. The Essenes, among whom numbered Jesus and John the Baptist, had set themselves apart from the mainstream Jewish community to establish their own settlement in the Judean wilderness. The settlement was known as Qumran and it overlooked the Dead Sea.
Now, conventionally speaking, the Dead Sea is indeed dead. It has one of the saltiest waters on Earth and therefore no plant thrives in it and no fish, or any other aquatic creature for that matter, flourishes in there. Its salinity is such that nothing sinks in it: everything floats, including swimmers. Moreover, the area around the Dead Sea is one of the most arid on the planet, with annual rainfall averaging only 100 mm in the north, where the Essenes were based.
That is not conducive to agricultural activities at all. Nor does sea water support irrigated agriculture. So why did the Essenes settle in such an existentially incongruous environment? Why didn’t they opt for the banks of the more amenable Jordan River? The answer is a simple one although it has escaped our mainstream historians. IT ALL HAD TO DO WITH THE WHITE POWDER OF GOLD BEST KNOWN AS ORMUS, A SUBSTANCE IN WHICH THE DEAD SEA WAS AND STILL IS VERY RICH.
Dead Sea precipitate has been assessed to contain about 70 percent gold in a monoatomic state. In fact, most of the US-based companies who market Ormus make it plain that they extract their Ormus from Dead Sea salt. It turns out the Dead Sea is not actually dead but in fact bristles with life-giving Ormus! The great Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle (384-322 BC) wrote of the Dead Sea’s remarkable healing properties.
Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt (69-30 BC) was so smitten it was rumoured she prevailed over her mighty husband Mark Anthony to invade the region so she could have limitless access to its “health-promoting waters and mud”. Even today, a bucket of Dead Sea mud fetches about $100 a pop in some nearby bazaar. During his reign (67 BC to 4 AD), Herod the Great built arguably the world’s first health spa on the edge of the Dead Sea. Clearly, the sea had something that was not known to the common man and of course this was Ormus, the monoatomic white powder of gold.
How do we know the Essenes used Ormus? First, it is common knowledge that the Essenes were famed for their healing powers. Their very name Essenes – ESSENOI in Greek – apparently derives from the Aramaic term ASSAYA, which means “physician”. The legendary Jewish historian Flavius Josephus says the Essenes “received their medicinal knowledge of roots and stones (minerals such as gold) from the ancients”. Ormus confers that by the truckload. Second, Josephus tells us that the Essenes were noted for their extraordinary lifespans.
They could live up to 100 years at a juncture in history when the average lifespan was 45 years. Ormus enables more than ordinary lifespans as we have already demonstrated. In fact, a metallurgical foundry has been excavated at Qumran, which obviously was used to process Ormus from monoatomic gold obtained from the Dead Sea.
One of the most recurring terms in the Dead Sea Scrolls, a work of the Essenes, is “Teacher of Righteousness”. The term alternatively refers to a person or an object. When it refers to a person, the most apparent candidate is John the Baptist, who was the dynastic Melchizedek, meaning “Righteous Priest-King”. The Melchizedek was the head of the Essenes although John declaimed the title, opting for a reclusive life in the Judean wilds. WHEN IT REFERS TO AN OBJECT, IT IS, ACCORDING TO DAVID HUDSON, WHO RESEARCHED THE DEAD SCROLLS, TALKING ABOUT ORMUS. A statement in one scroll says, “The High Spirit swallowed the Teacher of Righteousness,” meaning he ingested Ormus.
DID JESU EMPLOY ORMUS?
Jesus’ father Joseph is described as a NAGGER in Aramaic or HO HEKTON in Greek, terms wrongly translated as carpenter in pathetic English versions of the Bible. But nagger and ho hekton meant “master craftsman” in the sense of an Ormus-processing artisan. Like all members of the Grail royal family who date back to the time of Cain, the family of Jesus were Ormus artisans.
Jesus was raised at Qumran, the Essene redoubt on the shores of the Dead Sea, and as we have reiterated time and again, the Essenes chose Qumran because they could easily extract Ormus from the Ormus-rich Dead Sea, an art they had learnt from the Theraputae of Egypt and who lived among them. King David’s city was called Bethlehem, meaning “House of Bread” and bread was a euphemism for Ormus.
The House of David were experts at making Ormus folks. At Qumran, a certain enclave was also dubbed “Bethlehem of Judea”, suggesting it was the Qumran setting where Ormus was manufactured under the supervision of Joseph initially and Jesus or his immediate younger brother James latterly. In the course of The Jesus Papers, we underlined one particularly pertinent point. This was that the Jesus story had elements of fact, fable, allegory, and cryptogram. A little known fact about the Bible as a whole is that it has multiple layers.
The Bible is written not so much in straightforward language as in coded language. Thus a statement or story that appears to mean one thing to the ordinary reader may carry a radically different or a simply additional underlying meaning to initiates to the code. For example, the statements attributed to Jesus are pregnant with encrypted communication. Some of these statements were veiled references to Ormus. Firstly, Jesus called himself “The Bread of Life” (JOHN 6:35) and “The Water of life” (JOHN 4:14). Both these terms referred to Ormus.
Intriguingly, Jesus did not endorse Ormus: to the contrary, he spoke against it. Listen to what he says in this passage: “Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. But here is the bread (he himself) that comes down from Heaven, which anyone may eat and not die” (JOHN 6:49-50). Jesus contrasts the Ormus (manna) the Israelites were fed on at Mount Sinai with the Ormus that he embodied as a man who came straight from Heaven (the Astral plane).
What Jesus was simply saying was that his teachings were much more spiritually illuminating and nourishing than the partaking of Ormus, that his teachings were superior to Ormus, which the Essenes called “The Teacher of Righteousness” as we saw above. In other words, Jesus was saying, “stop using Ormus for God’s sake and just listen to me. Whatever Ormus is capable of doing to you my teachings can do ten-fold.”
Why did Jesus denounce Ormus? Because it was man-made, whereas his Ormus, his teachings, came straight from “The Father”, that is, the First Source that created all things. But there are seeming contradictions. When Jesus sets out to teach his disciples how to pray, he recites to them the so-called Lord’s Prayer, which contains the Ormus statement “Give us this day our daily bread”. Of course we now know that the Lord’s Prayer was put into Jesus’s mouth either by the gospel writers or later redactors as it is taken word for word from Spell 125 of The Egyptian Book of the Dead.
THE IRONY OF THE MATTER THOUGH IS THAT JESUS HIMSELF PERFORMED ACTS TYPICALLY ASSOCIATED WITH A PERSON WHO CONSUMES ORMUS. He would heal people by laying hands (LUKE 4:40) or simply speak healing from a distance (JOHN 4:43-54). Once he healed a deaf-mute (MARK 7:33) and a blind man (JOHN 9:6) using “spittle”, another term by which Ormus is known. After the resurrection, he could vanish and re-appear (LUKE 24:36/JOHN 20:26) out of the blue.
He could levitate (LUKE 24: 50-51/ACTS 1:3). He could walk on water (MATTHEW 14: 22-33). He could read minds (MATTHEW 9:4). He could remote-view (JOHN 1:48-50). He could sense evil thoughts (JOHN 13:27). He could shine like the noon day sun (MATTHEW 17:2/MARK 9:2–3/LUKE 9:28–36). He was able to go without food for 40 days and 40 nights (MATTHEW 4:1-11/ MARK 1:12, 13/ LUKE 4:1-13).
He may not have actually done these things, but even if they were simply symbolic attributions or pure allegory, the underlying message in keeping with the Bible code points to what consuming Ormus can entail. The halo that we see around Jesus in renaissance paintings may in part underline his capacity to shine thanks to taking Ormus.
As for the contradiction (denouncing Ormus while at the same time evincing its very use), this is easy to explain: the gospels were written not by a homogeneous group but by people with often conflicting agendas. Thus whilst some writers would have loved to bring his use of Ormus to the fore, others chose to disinform about it.
Seventy-seven years ago, on the evening of December 2, 1943, the Germans launched a surprise air raid on allied shipping in the Italian port of Bari, which was then the key supply centre for the British 8th army’s advance in Italy.
The attack was spearheaded by 105 Junkers JU88 bombers under the overall command of the infamous Air Marshal Wolfram von Richthofen (who had initially achieved international notoriety during the Spanish Civil War for his aerial bombardment of Guernica). In a little over an hour the German aircraft succeeded in sinking 28 transport and cargo ships, while further inflicting massive damage to the harbour’s facilities, resulting in the port being effectively put out of action for two months.
Over two thousand ground personnel were killed during the raid, with the release of a secret supply of mustard gas aboard one of the destroyed ships contributing to the death toll, as well as subsequent military and civilian casualties. The extent of the later is a controversy due to the fact that the American and British governments subsequently covered up the presence of the gas for decades.
At least five Batswana were killed and seven critically wounded during the raid, with one of the wounded being miraculously rescued floating unconscious out to sea with a head wound. He had been given up for dead when he returned to his unit fourteen days later. The fatalities and casualties all occurred when the enemy hit an ammunition ship adjacent to where 24 Batswana members of the African Pioneer Corps (APC) 1979 Smoke Company where posted.
Thereafter, the dozen surviving members of the unit distinguished themselves for their efficiency in putting up and maintaining smokescreens in their sector, which was credited with saving additional shipping. For his personal heroism in rallying his men following the initial explosions Company Corporal Chitu Bakombi was awarded the British Empire Medal, while his superior officer, Lieutenant N.F. Moor was later given an M.B.E.
Remember: bricks and cement are used to build a house, but mutual love, respect and companionship are used to build a HOME. And amongst His signs is this: He creates for you mates out of your own kind, so that you may find contentment (Sukoon) with them, and He engenders love and tenderness between you; in this behold, there are signs (messages) indeed for people who reflect and think (Quran 30:21).
This verse talks about contentment; this implies companionship, of their being together, sharing together, supporting one another and creating a home of peace. This verse also talks about love between them; this love is both physical and emotional. For love to exist it must be built on the foundation of a mutually supportive relationship guided by respect and tenderness. As the Quran says; ‘they are like garments for you, and you are garments for them (Quran 2:187)’. That means spouses should provide each other with comfort, intimacy and protection just as clothing protects, warms and dignifies the body.
In Islam marriage is considered an ‘ibaadah’, (an act of pleasing Allah) because it is about a commitment made to each other, that is built on mutual love, interdependence, integrity, trust, respect, companionship and harmony towards each other. It is about building of a home on an Islamic foundation in which peace and tranquillity reigns wherein your offspring are raised in an atmosphere conducive to a moral and upright upbringing so that when we all stand before Him (Allah) on that Promised Day, He will be pleased with them all.
Most marriages start out with great hopes and rosy dreams; spouses are truly committed to making their marriages work. However, as the pressures of life mount, many marriages change over time and it is quite common for some of them to run into problems and start to flounder as the reality of living with a spouse that does not meet with one’s pre-conceived ‘expectations’. However, with hard work and dedication, couples can keep their marriages strong and enjoyable. How is it done? What does it take to create a long-lasting, satisfying marriage?
Below are some of the points that have been taken from a marriage guidance article I read recently and adapted for this purposes.
POSITIVITY Spouses should have far more positive than negative interactions. If there is too much negativity — criticizing, demanding, name-calling, holding grudges, etc. — the relationship will suffer. However, if there is never any negativity, it probably means that frustrations and grievances are not getting ‘air time’ and unresolved tension is accumulating inside one or both partners waiting to ‘explode’ one day.
“Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames.” (49:11)
We all have our individual faults though we may not see them nor want to admit to them but we will easily identify them in others. The key is balance between the two extremes and being supportive of one another. To foster positivity in a marriage that help make them stable and happy, being affectionate, truly listening to each other, taking joy in each other’s achievements and being playful are just a few examples of positive interactions. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best character and the best of you are those who are best to their wives”
Another characteristic of happy marriages is empathy; understanding your spouses’ perspective by putting oneself in his or her shoes. By showing that understanding and identifying with your spouse is important for relationship satisfaction. Spouses are more likely to feel good about their marriage and if their partner expresses empathy towards them. Husbands and wives are more content in their relationships when they feel that their partners understand their thoughts and feelings.
Successful married couples grow with each other; it simply isn’t wise to put any person in charge of your happiness. You must be happy with yourself before anyone else can be. You are responsible for your actions, your attitudes and your happiness. Your spouse just enhances those things in your life. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.”
Successful marriages involve both spouses’ commitment to the relationship. The married couple should learn the art of compromise and this usually takes years. The largest parts of compromise are openness to the other’s point of view and good communication when differences arise.
When two people are truly dedicated to making their marriage work, despite the unavoidable challenges and obstacles that come, they are much more likely to have a relationship that lasts. Husbands and wives who only focus on themselves and their own desires are not as likely to find joy and satisfaction in their relationships.
Another basic need in a relationship is each partner wants to feel valued and respected. When people feel that their spouses truly accept them for who they are, they are usually more secure and confident in their relationships. Often, there is conflict in marriage because partners cannot accept the individual preferences of their spouses and try to demand change from one another. When one person tries to force change from another, he or she is usually met with resistance.
However, change is much more likely to occur when spouses respect differences and accept each other unconditionally. Basic acceptance is vital to a happy marriage. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “It is the generous (in character) who is good to women, and it is the wicked who insults them.” “Overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.” (Quran 15:85)
COMPASSION, MUTUAL LOVE AND RESPECT
Other important components of successful marriages are love, compassion and respect for each other. The fact is, as time passes and life becomes increasingly complicated, the marriage is often stressed and suffers as a result. A happy and successful marriage is based on equality. When one or the other dominates strongly, intimacy is replaced by fear of displeasing.
It is all too easy for spouses to lose touch with each other and neglect the love and romance that once came so easily. It is vital that husbands and wives continue to cultivate love and respect for each other throughout their lives. If they do, it is highly likely that their relationships will remain happy and satisfying. Move beyond the fantasy and unrealistic expectations and realize that marriage is about making a conscious choice to love and care for your spouse-even when you do not feel like it.
Seldom can one love someone for whom we have no respect. This also means that we have to learn to overlook and forgive the mistakes of one’s partner. In other words write the good about your partner in stone and the bad in dust, so that when the wind comes it blows away the bad and only the good remains.
Paramount of all, marriage must be based on the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the teachings and guidance of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To grow spiritually in your marriage requires that you learn to be less selfish and more loving, even during times of conflict. A marriage needs love, support, tolerance, honesty, respect, humility, realistic expectations and a sense of humour to be successful.
The past week or two has been a mixed grill of briefs in so far as the national employment picture is concerned. BDC just injected a further P64 million in Kromberg & Schubert, the automotive cable manufacturer and exporter, to help keep it afloat in the face of the COVID-19-engendered global economic apocalypse. The financial lifeline, which follows an earlier P36 million way back in 2017, hopefully guarantees the jobs of 2500, maybe for another year or two.
It was also reported that a bulb manufacturing company, which is two years old and is youth-led, is making waves in Selibe Phikwe. Called Bulb Word, it is the only bulb manufacturing operation in Botswana and employs 60 people. The figure is not insignificant in a town that had 5000 jobs offloaded in one fell swoop when BCL closed shop in 2016 under seemingly contrived circumstances, so that as I write, two or three buyers have submitted bids to acquire and exhume it from its stage-managed grave.
