Found Through Blind Open-Page-First-Look On May 14, 2015: Luke Chapters 17-19:27 End Times Warnings

I was distraught, and as I have done in the past on several occasions, I opened the Hebraic Scriptures to a certain part, but not knowing which book or what my eyes shall first look upon to then read, when I came to the following section in Luke chapters 17 through 19:27 as follows:

Luke 17:1 And He said to the taught ones, “It is inevitable that stumbling-blocks should come, but woe to him through whom they come! 2. It is better if a millstone is put around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that the should cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3. Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him and if he repents, forgive him. 4. And if he sins against you seven times in a day and seven times in a day comes back to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”

5. And the emissaries said to the Master, “Give us more belief.” 6. And the Master said, “If you have belief as a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up but the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. 7. But who of you, having a servant ploughing or shepherding, would say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come immediately and sit down to eat.’

8. But would he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare somewhat for my supper and first yourself and serve me while I eat and drink and afterward you shall ear and drink’? 9. Would he thank that servant because he did what he was commanded? I think not. 10. So also you, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants, we have done what was our duty to do.'”

11. And it came to be, as He went to Yerushalayim, that He passed through the midst of Shomeron and Balil. 12. And as He was entering into a certain village, He was met by ten leprous men, who stood at a distance. 13. And they lifted their voices, saying, “Yahusha Anointed One, Master, have compassion on us!”

14. And having seen them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And it came to be, that as they were going, they were cleansed. 15. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, praising Elohim with a loud voice, 16. and he fell down upon his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Shomeronite.

17. And Yahusha Anointed One answering, said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18. Was no one found to return to give praise to Elohim, except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Rise, go your way. Your belief has made you well.”

20. And having been asked by the Pharisees when the reign of Elohim would come, He answered them and said, “The reign of Elohim does not come with intent watching, nor shall they say, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ For look, the reign of Elohim is in your midst!”

22. And he said to the taught ones, “Days shall come when you shall long to see one of the days of the Son of Adam, but you shall not see it. 23. And they shall say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them, nor follow.

24. “For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Adam shall be in His day. 25. But first He has to suffer much and be rejected by this generation.

26. “And as it came to be in the days of Noah, so also shall it be in the days of the Son of Adam: 27. They were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah went into the ark and the flood came and destroyed them all.

28. “And likewise, as it came to be in the days of Lot: They were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building, 29. but on the day Lot went out of Sedom it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed all.

30. “It shall be the same in the day the Son of Adam is revealed. 31. In that day, he who shall be on the house-top and his goods in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back.

32, “Remember the wife of Lot. 33. Whoever seeks to save his life shall lose it and whoever loses his life shall preserve it. 34. I say to you, in that night there shall be two in one bed, the one shall be taken and the other shall be left.

35, “Two shall be grinding together, the one shall be taken and the other shall be left. 36. Two shall be in the field, the one shall be taken and the other shall be left.” 37. And they answering, said to Him, “Where, Master?” And He said to them, “Where the body is, there also the eagles shall be gathered together.”

Luke 18

1. And He spoke a parable to them, that they should always pray and not lose heart, 2. saying, “In a certain city there was a certain judge, not fearing Elohim nor regarding man. 3. And a widow was in that city and she came to him, saying, ‘Do right to me on my adversary.’ 4. And he would not for a  while, but afterward he said within himself, ‘Even if I do not fear Elohim nor regard man, 5. yet because this widow troubles me I shall do right to her, lest by here continual coming she wears me out.'”

6. And the Master said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge said. 7. And shall Elohim not do right by all means to His own chosen ones, who are crying out day and night to Him, and being patient over them? 8. I say to you that He shall do right to them speedily, but when the Son of Adam comes, shall He find the belief on the earth?”

9. And He also spoke this parable to some who relied on themselves that they were righteous and looking down on others: 10 “Two men went up to the Set-Apart Place to pray – the one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11. The Pharisee stood and began to pray with himself this way, ‘Elohim, I thank You that I am not like the rest of men, swindlers, unrighteous, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.

12. “I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13. But the tax collector standing at a distance would not even raise his eyes to the heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, ‘Elohim, show favour unto me, a sinner!’

14. “I say to you, this man went down to his house declared right, rather than the other. For everyone who is exalting himself shall be humbled, and he who is humbling himself shall be exalted.”

15, And they also brought infants to Him to touch them, but His taught ones seeing it, rebuked them. 16. But Yahusha Anointed One called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me and do not forbid them, for of such is the reign of Elohim. 17. “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the reign of Elohim as a little child, shall certainly not enter into it.”

18. And a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit everlasting life?” 19. So Yahusha Anointed One said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except One – Elohim. 20. You know the commandments, ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Respect your father and your mother,'”

21. And he said, “All these I have watched over from my youth.” 22. And hearing this, Yahusha Anointed One said to him, “Yet one you lack: Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor and you shall have treasure in heaven and come, follow Me.” 23. But when he heard this, he became intensely sad, for he was extremely rich.

24. And when Yahusha Anointed One saw that he became intensely sad, He said, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter into the reign of Elohim! 25. For it is easier for a camel to enter through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to enter into the reign of Elohim.”

26.And those who heard it said, “And who is able to be saved?” And he said, 27. “What is impossible with men is possible with Elohim.” 28. And Kepha said, “See, we have left all and followed You.” 29. And He said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the reign of Elohim, 30. who shall not receive many times more in this present time and in the age to come everlasting life.”

 31. And taking the twelve aside, He said to them, “See, we are going up to Yerushalayim and all that have been written by the prophets about the Son of Adam shall be accomplished. 32. For He shall be delivered up to the gentiles and shall be mocked and insulted and spat upon, 33. and having flogged Him they shall kill Him. And on the third day He shall rise again.”

34. But they understood none of this and this word was hidden from them and they did not know what was being said. 35. And it came to be, that as He was coming near Yeriho, that a certain blind man was sitting by the way begging. 36. And hearing a crowd passing by, he asked what it meant. 37. They reported to him that Yahusha Anointed One of Natsarith was passing by.

38. And he cried out, saying, “Yahusha Anointed One, Son of Dawid, have compassion on me!” 39. And those going before were rebuking him that he should be silent, but he was crying out much more, “Son of Dawid, have compassion on me!” 40. And Yahusha Anointed One stopped and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him, 41. saying, “What do you wish Me to do for you?” And he said, “Master, to receive my sight.”

42. And Yahusha Anointed One said to him, “Receive your sight! Your belief has saved you.” 43. And immediately he received his sight and was following Him, praising Elohim. And all the people, seeing it, gave praise to Elohim.

Luke 19

1. And having entered, He was passing through Yeriho. 2. And see, a man called Zakkai! He was a chief tax collector and he was rich, 3. and he was seeking to see who Yahusha Anointed One was, but was unable because of the crowd, for he was small in stature. 4. And having run ahead, he climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, because He was about to pass by.

5. And as Yahusha Anointed One came to the place, He looked up and saw him and said to him, “Zakkai, hurry and come down, for I have to stay at your house today.” 7. And seeing it, they all grumbled, saying, “He has gone in to stay with a man who is a sinner.”

8. But Zakkai stood up and said to the Master, “Look, Master, I give half of my possessions to the poor. And if I have taken whatever from anyone by false accusation, I repay fourfold.” 9. And Yahusha Anointed One said to him, “Today deliverance has come to this house – since he also is a son of Abrahim.

10. For the Son of Adam has come to seek and to save what was lost.” 11. And as they were hearing this, He spoke another parable, because He was near Yerushalayim and they thought the reign of Elohim was about to be manifested straightway.

12. He therefore said, “A certain nobleman went to a distant country to receive for himself a reign and to return. 13. And calling ten of his servants, He gave them ten minas and said to them, ‘Trade until I come.’ 14. “But his subjects were hating him and sent a delegation after him, to say, ‘We do not wish this one to reign over us.’

15. “And it came to be, when he came back, having received the reign, that he sent for these servants to whom he had given the silver, in order to know what each had gained by trading. 16. And the first came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned ten minas.’ 17. And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant. Because you were trustworthy in a small matter, have authority over ten cities.’

18. “And the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned five minas.’ 19. And he said to him also, ‘And you – be over five cities.’ 20. And another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, 21. which I kept laid up in a handkerchief. 22. For I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. you take up what you did not lay down and reap what you did not sow.’

22. And he said to him, ‘Out of your own mouth I shall judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was a hard man, taking up what I did not lay down and reaping what I did not sow. 23. Why did you not put the silver in the bank, that when I come I could have collected it with interest?’

24. Then he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him and give it to him who possesses ten minas.’ 25. But they said to him, ‘Master, he already possesses ten minas.’ 26. For I say to you, that to everyone who possesses shall be given; and from him who does not possess, even what he possesses shall be taken away from him.

27. “But those enemies of mine who did not wish me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them before me.'”

Christmas: The Truth Your Pastor Refuses to Tell You Concerning the Pagan (Nimrodic) Roots of Christmas(s)

Please ask your pastor about the Pagan (Nimrodic) roots of Christmas. Ask your (a) Christian pastor why he celebrates a holiday that honors the Babylonian trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis? Please ask your favorite Christian leader or organization why they celebrate a known Pagan holiday from the Babylonian trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis that is now called ‘Christmas.’ Thank you, you may be very glad you did. 🙂

Are Today’s Christian “Leaders” Really Just Con-Men and Con-Women For the Babylonian Trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis? You Decide

Are today’s Christian “leaders” really just con-men and con-women working for the Babylonian trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis? To answer this question, we must ask what the Christian leaders are doing to promote the Mystery Religion of Semiramis, Nimrod and Tammuz, and what is it that they are NOT revealing (suppressing the Truth) to their followers about this conning of others for mammon for this trinity. For this, all we do is have to provide historical evidence that the holidays of Christmas, Easter, St. Valentines Day, All Saints Day and Halloween all have their roots in the Babylonian Trinity, and that the Christian leaders are REFUSING to inform their followers of the Babylonian inspiration of these holidays for fear that they would get LESS MAMMON when they INVOKE these holidays (please notice the difference between so-called “Christian holidays” and “Jewish festivals”) when they ask for mammon.

And, it is the truth that I have already written an article concerning these holidays and their connection to the Babylonian trinity — and also true that I shared this information via many times a direct link to the article through electronic communication to many major Christian organizations and their leaders thereof — and even providing some with a phone call or two. I got almost ZERO follow-up, though their written words told me they were concerned about “every” person. These Christians leaders and their organizations were warned to the tune of over approximately 700 contacts with them, with the vast majority going to major — and a smaller amount going to minor — Christian organizations.

So, what DO you call someone who is WILLING to invoke Babylonian-inspired holidays for mammon, all the while SUPPRESSING THE Truth to their followers for fear that they would get LESS mammon? I would call them Truth Suppressors working as con-men and con-women for the Babylonian trinity of Tammuz, Semiramis and Nimrod.

I called the 700 Club, and I believe Pat Robertson was on a recording quoting FROM  this passage in the Scriptures at Yeshayahu 8: 13 (Isaiah)  :”YAHUAH of hosts, Him you shall set-apart. Let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread.” Now, let’s continue with that very Scripture; “And He shall be for a set-apart place, but a STONE OF STUMBLING and a rock that makes for FALLING to both the houses of Yisra’el, as a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim. And many among them shall STUMBLE and FALL and be BROKEN and SNARED and TAKEN.” Bind up the witness and seal the Torah among My taught ones. And I shall wait on YAHUAH YHWH, who hides His face from the house of Ya’azob…Look, I and the children whom Yahuah has given me — for signs and wonders in Yisra’el from Yahuah of hosts, who dwells in Mount Tsiyon. And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter, “should not a people seek their Elohim? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? To the Torah and to the witness! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because they have no daybreak. And they shall pass through it hard pressed and hungry. And is shall be, when they are hungry, that they shall be wroth and curse their sovereign and their Elohim, looking upward. And they shall LOOK TO THE EARTH and see DISTRESS AND DARKNESS, GLOOM OF HARD TIMES and be DRIVEN INTO THICK DARKNESS.

Now let’s go to the very beginnings of that passage that Pat Robertson quoted; Yeshayahu 8:9 “Be shattered, O YOU PEOPLE’S and BE BROKEN IN PIECES! GIVE EAR, ALL YOU FROM THE FAR PLACES OF THE EARTH. Gird yourselves, but be broken into pieces. Take council, and it comes to ruin, speak a word and it does not stand, for El is with us.” For Yahuah spoke thus to me with a strong hand and instructed me that I should NOT WALK IN THE WAYS OF THIS PEOPLE, SAYING, “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, nor be afraid of their threats, not be troubled.”

And I say that these con-men and con-women Christian leaders ARE CONSPIRING to SUPPRESS the Truth about these Nimrodic holidays to their followers, spreading their falsehoods around the globe, all the while uplifting OTHER SOVEREIGNS that originally were somehow connected to the falsehoods that Semiramis started.

So, to be sure, when I was a Christian, I was spreading falsehoods to others about these holidays, but did not know I was doing so. But, when I inform a Christian or their organizations and their leaders thereof about the historical evidence that these holidays are from Babylon, they not only SUPPRESS THE Truth, but become Pathological Liars for the Trinity of Tammuz, Nimrod and Semiramis, wanting to hear no evil, see no evil and tell no evil about how these holidays are abomination to Yahuah according to Scripture.

So, now I will bring the historical facts concerning these holidays to light so that the truth can finally be told to everyone, and that hearing this it will either set people free, or condemn them as Truth Suppressors;

Here are the historical facts concerning the holidays of Christmas, Easter, All Saints Day, Halloween and St. Valentines Day:

  •  In Rome, feast of Sol Invictus (the Unconquerable Sun), or Mithra’s birthday, was celebrated on December 25.
  • In the 4th century A.D., Pope Julius officially made December 25 the day for Christians to celebrate the birth of the Jewish Messiah Yahusha Mashiach,  calling it the Feast of the Nativity, though birthdays were not celebrated by the followers of the Way of Yahusha Mashiach Messiah, and Messiah’s birthday was not only not celebrated, no record can be even be found noting His actual birth.
  • In the 8th century A.D., the Feast of the Nativity had gained popularity across most of the world, but replacing the hedonistic celebrations in name only. Most Puritans that came to America outlawed the holiday, and it wasn’t common to celebrate it until after the Civil War.
  •  “A broad element of English Christianity still considered Christmas celebration a pagan blasphemy. The Puritans, Baptists, Quakers, Presbyterians, Calvinists and other denominations brought this opposition to early New England and strong opposition to the holiday lasted in American until the middle of the 18th century.” — The Origins of Christmas, Rick Meisel, Dec. 19, 1993, p.4.
  • Semiramis’ son Tammuz was born at the winter solstice around December 25.  Tammuz became a sovereign in the eyes of the people.
  • The Christmas tree and the Yule log used today were first used to celebrate the birth of Tammuz, and became an annual religious festival in ancient pagan Babylon.  The celebration of the birthday of Tammuz was always a wild drunken orgy — a favorite festival among the Pagans.
  • Many Santa researchers agree that some traits of Santa were borrowed from Norse / Scandinavian Mythology. The Norse sovereign Oden or Woden is described as riding through the sky on an eight-legged white horse named Sleipnir.  Odin lived in Valhalla (the North) and had a long white beard.  Odin myth had him flying through the sky during the winter solstice (December 21-25), rewarding good children, while punishing naughty ones.
  • Santa can also be traced to the Norse sovereign Thor.  Thor was the sovereign of the peasants and the common people, and was represented as a heavy-build, jovial, elderly man, with a long white beard.  His element was the fire and his color red, and the fireplace in every home was set-apart to him, and mythology says that he would come down through the chimney into his element, the fire.  Thor drove in a chariot drawn by two white goats called Cracker and Gnasher, and he fought the giants of ice and snow so he became known as the Yule-sovereign.  He lived in the Northland, where he had his palace among icebergs.
  • The origins of many Christian customs comes from Babylonian sun-worship and  have been cleverly absorbed into the religion of Christianity.
  • The Nimrod Tree is now the ‘Christmas Tree, but originated in Babylon, along with the wreaths, branches and boughs that were used by the ancient pagans as emblems of Nimrod, because it was believed they were thought of as the re-birth of the sun.  Trees were decorated during the winter solstice.
  • In Babylonian Mythology, after Nimrod’s death, he became the sun-sovereign and was worshiped as Baal (Baal mean ‘Lord’), Marduk, Mithras, Ahura, Mazda, Gott, Aton, and Dagon.
  •  Pagans were absorbed into Christianity, and brought with them their Pagan religious festivals, and the truth was cleverly suppressed, while Christians continued to support these abominations.
  • Different forms under different names of the original son of the Sun-sovereign Tammuz of Babylon, which is the land from which sun worship originally spread, can all be traced back to Babylon and the birthday of Tammuz.
  • Nativity worship is actually about the sovereign Tammuz (also known as Nimrod), and was performed with carved idol images that were set up in chamber rooms (manger sets) and prayed to.  The figures in the modern nativity sets have been given names such as Mary, Joseph, the Three Wise Men, shepherds, etc., but these are  evolved and false, with the real person originally being worshiped being Tammuz.
  •  The Christmas wreath comes from the worship of Tammuz, and the wreaths were round and came from evergreen trees to symbolize the sun (just as  halos in most Christian art) — the eternal sun named Tammuz by the ancient Pagans.
  • The earliest known inhabitants of Mesopotamia were the Sumerians, whom the Scriptures refer to as the people of the “land of Shinar” (Gen 10:10). Nimrod united the people of Babylonia under his rule about 2300 B.C.
  •  The Scriptures speak much about the Babylonians all the way back from the time of Hammurapi (2000 BC) to the fall of Babylon (about 500 BC). Throughout the Old Covenant there are references to the Babylonians, their people, culture, religion and military power.
  • Consider the following quote from The Democrat and Chronicle, Rochester, New York, December 1984: “The Roman festival of Saturnalia, Dec. 17-24, moved citizens to decorate their homes with greens and lights and give gifts to children and the poor. The Dec. 25 festival of natalis solis invicti, the birth of the unconquered sun, was decreed by the emperor Aurelian in A.D. 274 as a Winter Solstice celebration, and sometime (later)…was Christianized as a date to celebrate the birth of the Son of Light.”
  • “The early Romans were not celebrating Christmas but rather a pagan feast called the Saturnalia. It occurred each year around the beginning of winter, or the winter solstice. This was the time when the sun had taken its lowest path across the sky and the days were beginning to lengthen, thus assuring another season of growth. — Dr. William Gutsch, chairman of the American Museum of Natural History
  • The Saturnalia celebrated Saturn—the fire sovereign who was said to also to be a sovereign of sowing (planting), since heat from the sun was necessary to allow for planting and growth of crops. He was worshipped so that he would come back (as he was supposed to be the “sun”) and warm the earth again so that spring planting could occur. Also, the planet Saturn was later named after him because of its rings and bright red color, best representing the sovereign of fire.
  • Virtually every civilization has/had a fire/sun sovereign, with the Egyptians calling him Vulcan, the Greeks calling him Kronos, as did the Phoenicians—but they also called him Saturn. The Babylonians called him Tammuz (as Tammuz was said to be Nimrod, resurrected in the person of his son), Molech or Baal, and all were the various names for NIMROD who was considered to be the father of all the Babylonian sovereigns.
  • “Now, this is in exact accordance with the character of the Great Head of the system of fire-worship. Nimrod, as the representative of the devouring fire to which human victims, and especially children, were offered in sacrifice, was regarded as the great child-devourer…he was, of course, the actual father of all the Babylonian gods; and, therefore, in that character he was afterwards universally regarded. As the Father of the gods, he was, as we have seen, called Kronos; and every one knows that the classical story of Kronos was just this, that, ‘he devoured his sons as soon as they were born.’ (Lempriere Classical Dictionary, ‘Saturn.’)…This legend has a further and deeper meaning; but, as applied to Nimrod, or ‘The Horned One,’ it just refers to the fact, that,as the representative of Moloch or Baal, infants were the most acceptable offerings at his altar. We have ample and melancholy evidence on this subject from the records of antiquity. ‘The Phoenicians,’ says Eusebius, ‘every year sacrificed their beloved and only-begotten children to Kronos or Saturn.’” — The Two Babylons, Alexander Hislop, page 231
  • Continuing: “…he who approached the fire would receive a light from divinity” and “through divine fire all the stains produced by generations could be purged away.” Therefore, “children were made to pass through the fire unto Molech” (Jer. 32:35).
  • “And it was a principle of the Mosaic law, a principle no doubt derived from the patriarchal faith, that the priest must partake of whatever was offered as a sin-offering (Numbers xviii. 9, 10). Hence, the priests of Nimrod or Baal were necessarily required to eat of the human sacrifices; and thus it has come to pass that ‘Cahna-Bal,’ the ‘Priest of Baal,’ is the established word in our own tongue for a devourer of human flesh.” — The Two Babylons, by Alexander Hislop, page 232
  • The Bibliotheca Sacra states, “The interchange of presents between friends is a like characteristic of Christmas and the Saturnalia, and must have been adopted by Christians from the pagans, as the admonition of Tertullian plainly shows” — Vol. 12, pp. 153-155
  •  “An old Babylonish fable told of an evergreen tree which sprang out of a dead tree stump. The old stump symbolized the dead Nimrod, the new evergreen tree symbolized that Nimrod had come to life again in Tammuz! Among the Druids the oak was sacred, among the Egyptians it was the palm, and in Rome it was the fir, which was decorated with red berries during the Saturnalia!” — Walsh, Curiosities of Popular Customs, p. 242.
  • Frederick J. Haskin’s Answers to Questions states; “The Christmas tree is from Egypt, and its origin dates from a period long anterior to the Christian Era.”
  • “European pagans brought holly sprays into their homes, offering them to the fairy people of the forests as refuges from the harsh winter weather. During the Saturnalia, the Roman winter festival, branches of holly were exchanged as tokens of friendship…”
  • The modern term for merging false pagan customs with the worship of Elohim is called syncretism.
  • “…all ranks devoted themselves to feasting and mirth, presents were exchanged among friends, and crowds thronged the streets, shouting ‘Lo Saturnalia.’ An offering was made beneath a decorated evergreen tree, according to the pagan poet, Virgil. Figurines and masks—called‘oscilla’—were hung on the tree, as are Christmas decorations today. History admits…there can be no doubt that we have in these ‘oscilla’ a relic of human sacrifice” — the Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities, “Oscilla” 3rd edition, volume II
  • “For a time, coins and other monuments continued to link Christian doctrines with worship of the sun, to which Constantine had been addicted previously. But even when this phase came to an end, Roman paganism continued to exert other, permanent influences, great and small…The ecclesiastical calendar retains numerous remnants of pre-Christian festivals, notably Christmas, which blends elements including both the feast of the Saturnalia and the birthday of Mithra. But, most of all, the mainstream of Western Christianity owed ancient Rome the firm discipline that gave it stability and shape.” — Encyclopaedia Britannica, 15th edition, volume 10, pages 1062-3
  • “How much the date of the festival depended upon the pagan Brumalia (December 25) following the Saturnalia (Dec. 17-24), and celebrating the shortest day of the year and the ‘new sun’…cannot be accurately determined. The pagan Saturnalia and Brumalia were too deeply entrenched in popular custom to be set aside by Christian influence…The pagan festival with its riot and merry-making was so popular that Christians were glad of an excuse to continue its celebration with little change in spirit and in manner. Christian preachers of the West and the Near East protested against the unseemly frivolity with which Christ’s birthday was celebrated, while Christians of Mesopotamia accused their Western brethren of idolatry and sun worship for adopting as Christian this pagan festival.” — New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge
  • “Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the church…Certain Latins, as early as 354, may have transferred the birthday from January 6th to December 25, which was then a Mithraic feastor birthday of the unconquered SUN…The Syrians and Armenians, who clung to January 6th, accused the Romans of sun worship and idolatry, contending…that the feast of December 25th, had been invented by disciples of Cerinthus…” — The Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1946 edition
  • It can be said that the entirety of traditional Christianity is actually built around the worship of Nimrod/Saturn/Molech/Baal, with the modern mother/child “Mary/Jesus” push,  including actual worship of Mary, representing a parallel with Nimrod and his mother, Semiramis.
  • Christmas Tree – The set-apart tree of the winter-sovereign, of which the Druids believed the spirit of their sovereigns resided in the tree. Most ancient pagans knew the tree represented Nimrod reincarnated into Tammuz, and also looked upon the tree as a phallic symbol.
  • The star – Pentalpha, is the five-pointed star, and a powerful symbol of Satan, second only to the hexagram. The star is the set-apart symbol of Nimrod.
  • Candles (like the modern “Christmas lights”) represents the sun-sovereigns newly-born fire.
  • Mistletoe is the set-apart plant of the Druids, symbolizing pagan blessings of fertility, with the kissing under the mistletoe being the first step in the reproductive cycle. Also, Witches use the white berries in potions.
  • December 25 is known as the “nativity” of the sun, and is the birthday of Tammuz, the son of Semiramis, and Nimrod reincarnated. December 21 is known as Yule, and the Roman Catholic Church moved the celebration of Yule to December 25.
  • “It was on or about December 21st that the ancient Greeks celebrated what are known to us as the Bacchanalia or festivities in honor of Bacchus, the god of wine. In these festivities the people gave themselves up to songs, dances and other revels which frequently passed the limits of decency and order”.
  •  “Later, when this adulterous and idolatrous woman gave birth to an illegitimate son, she claimed that this son, Tammuz by name, was Nimrod reborn.” Easter/Ishatar “claimed that her son was supernaturally conceived [no human father] and that he was the promised seed, the ‘savior’” “However, not only was the child worshipped, but the woman, the MOTHER, was also worshipped as much (or more) than the son!”.
    In the old fables of the Mystery cults, their ‘savior’ Tammuz, was worshipped with various rites at the Spring season. According to the legends, after he was slain [killed by a wild boar], he went into the underworld. But through the weeping of his mother… he mystically revived in the springing forth of the vegetation—in Spring! Each year a spring festival dramatically represented this supposed ‘resurrection’ from the underworld.”
  • Babel was the origin of an idolatrous system that was adopted by the world, with the Scriptures warning, . The Scriptures say of her, “Babylon…the nations drank her wine; Therefore the nations are deranged” (Jeremiah 51:7).
  • The ancient Greek historian Herodotus “witnessed the Mystery religion and its rites in numerous countries and mentions how Babylon was the primeval source from which ALL systems of idolatry flowed.” Austen Layard commented “that we have the united testimony of sacred and profane history that idolatry originated in the area of Babylonia—the most ancient of religious systems.”
  • As the people scattered from Babel with their different languages, they used different names for Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis. Some called the Mother sovereigness “ISHTAR” (originally pronounced “Easter”) In other lands, she was called Eostre, Astarte, Ostera, and Eastre. Other names for Semiramis are Wife of Baal, Ashtaroth or Ashtoreth, and Queen of Heaven, with the Mother sovereign frequently worshipped as the sovereigness of fertility, and called  Mother Nature and sovereigness of Spring, sexual love and birth. 
  • The Easter bunny symbolizes the Mother sovereign, while annual Spring time fertility rituals are associated with the worship of the Mother Goddess and Tammuz, the reincarnation of her husband Nimrod.
  • The egg was a sacred symbol among the Babylonians. They believed an old fable about an egg of wondrous size which was supposed to have fallen from heaven into the Euphrates River. From this marvelous egg—according to the ancient story—the Goddess Astarte (Easter) [Semiramis], was hatched. And so the egg came to symbolize the Goddess Easter.”
  • “About 200 B.C. mystery cults began to appear in Rome just as they had earlier in Greece. Most notable was the Cybele cult centered on Vatican hill …Associated with the Cybele cult was that of her lover, Attis (the older Tammuz, Osiris, Dionysus, or Orpheus under a new name). He was a god of ever-reviving vegetation. Born of a virgin, he died and was reborn annually. The festival began as a day of blood on Black Friday and culminated after three days in a day of rejoicing over the resurrection.” — Gerald L. Berry, author of “Religions of the World
  • In 469, emperor Gelasius declared February 14th a set-apart day in honor of Valentinus, instead of the pagan sovereign Lupercus, which allowed Christianity to take over some of the celebrations of love and fertility, which had previously occurred in paganism settings. 
  • “After the conversion of the Imperial city (Rome), the Christians still continued, in the month of February, the annual celebration of the Lupercalia; to which they ascribed a secret and mysterious influence on the genial powers of the animal and vegetable world. ” —  The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbons
  • The Greeks copied most of their mythology from the Romans, with Lupercus known as Pan, the sovereign of light. The Phoenicians worshipped the same sovereign as Baal, the sun-sovereign, and was one of many names or titles for Nimrod, who was a mighty hunter.
  • Cupid was the son of Venus, Roman sovereigness of beauty and love, and also known as Eros in ancient Greece, he was the son of Aphrodite. According to myth, he was responsible for impregnating numerous sovereignesses and human mortals. Cupid was a child-like archer ( Nimrod was a skilled archer), with mythology describing him as having both a cruel and happy personality. Using his invisible arrows tipped with gold to strike unsuspecting men and women, he caused them to fall deeply in love. But, he did not do this for their benefit, but instead to drive them crazy with intense passion, in order to make their lives miserable, and to then laugh at the results.
  • All Saints’ Day is followed by All-Souls’ Day, November 2, unless is a Sunday, which then it was November 3, another Catholic adaptation of pagan festivals for the dead. Prayers for the dead are an integral part of the traditional All Saint’s Day services on November 1, and on the next Sunday. Halloween gets its name from the Catholic holiday, it is a Hallowed evening, because it precedes All Hallows’ Day, thus: Hallow’en. Halloween is nothing more than a pagan holiday to honor the dead and evil spirits.

The Christians who continue to spread falsehoods about these pagan holidays claiming that Heaven supports them — all the while seeing no evil, hearing no evil and speaking no evil of these Nimrodic holidays — have thusly CHOOSEN to become Pathological Liars, of which Heaven does not condone.

Origins and Definitions of Words; Holy, Hallowed, Sacred, Sanctified, Bible, Grace, Luck, Lucifer, Divine, Divinity, Deity, Theos, God, Christ, Jesus, Church, LORD, Gospel, AMEN, Glory

The following are the origins and definitions of words and names that Christianity has adopted into its vocabulary — much of it related to Pagan sovereigns that trace their roots back to Babylon and the Trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis — while at the same time Christianity refuses to reveal and proclaim the Name above all names, and His Father’s Name, YHWH, and the true names Elohim gave his prophets and others in the Scriptures of Elohim.

The Hebrew word qodesh and the equivalent Greek word hagios, together with their derivatives, have been translated with one of three words, or derivatives, in our older English versions, namely: holy, hallowed, or sanctified. Another word is also used in modern versions, and generally in ecclesiastical literature, namely: sacred. Most of us have the idea that this word has the meaning of piety, or being pious, or to be devout. However, this conception is refuted when we read in Isa. 66:17 of the idolatrous people “who sanctify (qadash) themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens after an idol in the midst, eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse…” This refutation of the incorrect idea that “holy” means “to be pious”, is further confirmed by the shocking discovery that one of the Hebrew words for a harlot (whore) is qedeshah, a derivative of qadash! Likewise, a male prostitute (or sodomite) is called a qadesh in Hebrew. This then causes us to seek for the real meaning of the word qodesh (its verb being qadash) and its Greek equivalent hagios. The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, vol. 2, p. 817, summarises what most authorities say about qodesh and hagios, “…the meaning of ‘separation’ is paramount…the more elemental meaning seems to lie with ‘separation’.” The same dictionary, in vol. 4, p.210, says, “The basic sense of the Hebrew root qadash, as of its Greek equivalent in the Bible—hagios, seems to be ‘separateness‘.” Likewise, Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words repeatedly emphasises the fact of the fundamental meaning of the word to be: “separation” (see under “holiness” and “sanctification”). With the discovery of the true meaning of this word, namely, separate and separation, we can now understand why qodesh is used in a positive sense, a good sense, and that it can equally be used in a negative and evil sense. Someone is, or something is separated unto YHWH, or he/it is separated unto evil. Thus, the word qodesh applies to both.

Why then, if the Hebrew word qodesh as well as the Greek hagios both mean “separation, why has the word “holy” been used instead? Is it possible that the father of all lies, the Great Deceiver, had cunningly proceeded with his master plan of bringing idolatrous worship into True Worship? Indeed, we do find evidence of his veiled, his hidden, his mysterious work. In The Oxford English Dictionary, vol. 5, p. 345, under “Holy”, we read, “…the primitive pre-Christian meaning is uncertain…Its earlier application to heathen deities is found in ON [Old Norse].” Likewise, we read in the big Netherland’s Woordenboek der Nederlandsche Taal, vol. 6, p. 455 (I translate), “An explanation of the original meaning, that makes it clear as to how this adjective has obtained the meaning of the Latin sanctus, has not yet been given — For speculations, see e.g. KLUGE, FRANCK AND MURRAY.” But we did discover the origin of the word “holy”. In G. Jobes, Dictionary of Mythology Folklore and Symbols, p. 781, we read, “HOLY: In practically all languages, the word for holy has been derived from the divinely honored sun.” We found confirmation in Forlong’s Encyclopedia of Religions, as follows, “HOLI: The Great Hindu spring festival…held in honour of Krishna, as the spring sun-god…a personified woman called Holi…Holi had tried to poison the babe Krishna…” Further revealing evidence was yet to come. In Strong’s Concordance, in the Greek Lexicon No. 1506, we found the following: “heile (the sun’s ray)”—this is pronounced: heilei. This form is almost identical to the German and Dutch equivalent of the English “holy”. The meaning of “halo“, the ring on top of a saint’s head, now became clear to us. And this was confirmed in J.C. Cooper, An Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Traditional Symbols, p. 112, “NIMBUS, HALO, or AUREOLE: Originally indicative of solar power and the sun’s disk, hence an attribute of sun-gods.”

The truth of this most disturbing find stunned us. We simply could not handle it. Gradually we came to understand. The Great Deceiver will not make the mistake of diverting the worship towards himself. By just diverting it to the innocent sun, Satan would succeed in his master plan by firstly veiling, and then bringing into the Temple the “wicked abomination”, as Elohim had called this Sun-mixed worship (Eze. 8:9-16). It is well known how pictures of our Messiah, of Mary, and of a great number of saints were adorned with a sun-disc (nimbus), or halo, or sun-rays, thereby identifying him/her with the Sun-(sovereign)

With the word “holy” being applied to the Spirit of YHWH, called in Hebrew Ruach ha Qodesh, the enormous challenge was put to us: Can we continue to use the word “Holy Spirit”? Ruach ha Qodesh simply means: “The Spirit of Separation”? Can we continue bringing homage to the Sun, once the truth has been revealed to us, and be found guilty of participating in the “wicked abominations” of Eze. 8:9-16?

In the Scriptures we are warned of Job’s similar predicament in Job 31 :26-28, in which Job warns us of this “an iniquity worthy of judgment, for I would have denied Elohim who is above.” Have we not been warned in Jer. 10:2, “Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; do not be dismayed (awed) at the signs of heaven for the Gentiles are dismayed (awed) at them.”? Can we ignore the disastrous result of Israel’s disobedience to the Law which caused Elohim to have “turned and gave them up to worship the host of heaven,” Acts 7:42? We who have entered into the New [Covenant], having the Law of YHWH written into our hearts (Heb. 8:10 and 10:16), can we delight in His Law, His Words? Do we accept His warning which comes to us in Deut.4:19, “And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you fee driven to worship them and serve them, which YHWH your Elohim has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage”? If it has been revealed to US having been led by the Spirit of Truth, that the word “holy” has been derived from the…sun can we ignore it? In direct contrast to this “sun-origin” of the word “holy”, the Hebrew qodesh and the Greek hagios have nothing to do with the sun or sun-rays at all. The Spirit of Truth put the challenge before us: If we love Him Who first loved us, we will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. If we love the Spirit of YHWH, we will call Him: The Spirit of Separation, and not “the spirit of the sun”. The former is the truth, the latter is a lie if it is meant to be a translation of Ruach ha Qodesh. If the term “spirit of the sun” is devoid of all Scriptural truth, how much more is the term “spirit of the divinely honoured sun”?—or “the spirit that solarises”, or “the solarised spirit”?

Identical to the above is another derivative of this word originating from the “divinely honoured sun.” In our versions the word “hallowed” is also a translation of qodesh or qadash, and hagiazo. The word is also found in “halloween” or “Hallow-even”, an old pagan British festival which was adopted by the church. The great Sun-image of the Krom-druach was specially worshipped at this season.119 Here again, this word “hallowed” in our versions should be “koshered” to read: “separated“.

Although this word is not found in the King James Version, it has been used in some instances in the more recent English versions (e.g. Moffatt’s Translation, NIV, GNB, NASB) to translate the Hebrew qodesh and the Greek hagios. In the literature and preaching of the churches, however, it is frequently used, as well as in the word “sacrament”. Much of the English language, which is one of the Indo-European languages, viz. Sanskrit. Similarly, the English word “sacred” can be traced back to the Sanskrit “Sakra”. What or who was “Sakra”? Larousse, World Mythology, pp. 229, 233, reveals to us that Indra was one of the 12 forms of the Sun-[sovereign], and that he was also known as: “Sakra”. This startling information is found in other sources too.120 In this [sovereign], and in the twelfth form, he is called: Mitra, the origin of the later Persian and Roman Mithra or Mithras, who at first was only associated with the Sun-[sovereign], but later on became the Sun-[sovereign] himself as Sol Invictus, the unconquered Sun-[sovereign].

Another word that translates the Hebrew qodesh and the Greek hagios, is the word “sanctified”, which, according to the dictionaries, originates from the Latin ‘sanctus.’ According to Pauly-Wissowa, Realencyclopaedie, under “Sanctus”, the primary meaning and origin is not certain. However, this article quotes a source mentioning Santus as a [sovereign], named deus sanctus, and also states that Sanctus was often used as an epithet or surname of (See also this same book’s entry: “Sancus”). Augustine in his ‘City of God’,121 reveals to us that the Sabine chief [sovereign], Sancus, was called by some: Sanctus. In the Realencyclopaedie, under “Sancus”, we read of a statue of Sancus, representing an archaic type of Apollo, the great Sun-[sovereign]. At the end of the article it states that, originally, Semo Sancus was Jupiter itself. Another cognate form Sancius was also identified as Jupiter.

Although we have fewer witnesses here than in the case against the words “holy”, “sacred” and “hallow”, we still have enough evidence that “Sancuts was the name of a pagan deity, even identified with Jupiter and Apollo. Another “wicked abomination“, in the form of the words “sanctified” and “sanctuary”, had been fused with the pure Messianic Faith, and we must eliminate them. 

This precious book, the Scriptures, that we dedicatedly love, is called “Scriptures” whenever the book is spoken of as a whole. This was the name given to it by Yahushúa and His apostles, and once by Daniel in Dan. 10:21. We find it designated as such in no less than 54 places, of which, therefore, 53 appear in the New Testament. “Scripture” was the word used by Luther as a designating title for his German translation of the Scriptures. It is true that parts of Scripture, or individual books, are called “books” or “scrolls”, which arebiblos or biblion in Greek. But biblos or biblion both only refer to individual books or sections of the Scriptures, and is nowhere used Scripture to designate the complete writ, the Scriptures.

This word for the Scriptures was not used in the first few centuries of this era, and was first used ca. 400 C.E.217. Thus, this designation for the Scriptures was a later introduction. Why then was the Scriptural designation for the complete book, namely “Scriptures”, substituted with the Hellenized word, “Bible”? The common story that has been told us, is that biblion, or plural biblia, denotes any kind of written document, originally written on papyrus. This Egyptian papyrus reed cam from Egypt and was imported through the Phoenician seaport Gebal, which the Greeks called Byblos or Byblus. This seaport Byblos was the home of the Phoenician Sun-[sovereign], according to S.H. Langdon, Mythology of All Races, vol. V. p. 351. This seaport or city was also known to be a city which was founded by Baal Chronos, as well as the real seat of Elohim, 218 where a large temple of Elohim once proudly stood. The Isis and Osiris could, both Sun-[sovereigns], also became popular in this city later on.218 Further evidence was found when we read that, “The Sun-god is associated with the ‘Lady of Byblos‘ in a letter from Tell el-Amarna (116:65, Kn.).”219 In our research, up to this point, we were suspicious, but had no proof or incriminating evidence. and then, it was revealed to us. W.H. Roscher in his Ausfuhrliches Lexikon der Griechischen und Romishen Mythologie, vol. 1, pp. 839-840, states that this ancient city Byblos in Phoenicia, as well as the city Byblis, in Egypt, was named after the female [sovereign] BYBLIS, also called BYBLE, also called BIBLIS! This female [sovereign] was the grand-daughter of Apollo, the well-known Greek Sun-[sovereign]!220 Moreover – pagan worship was generally known to have some sensuality to draw the carnal minds of the masses. And here again, we find that this female [sovereign], Biblis, was described as nymph (Gilbert Meadows, An Illustrated Dictionary of Classical Mythology, as well as Edward Tripp, Crowell’s Handbook of Classical Mythology, both under “Byblis”). This very book, the Scriptures, which we so dearly love and cherish, has been given a name derived from the female [sovereign] who was the grand-daughter of the Sun-[sovereign], Apollo.

We then understood the great sign given to John in Revelation 12, the Sun-clothed woman. Indeed, the faith of the New [Covenant], originating from the pure Hebrew Faith, had become clothed with Sun-worship. Because the Church had rejected the Eternal [Covenant]…just like Old Testament Israel so often did (as described in Acts 7:38 to 42), therefore the same verdict came upon us: “The Mighty One turned and gave them up to worship the host of heaven…” The Church was mixed with, and fused with sun-worship, to such an extent, that The Mighty One gave her up to receive the name derived from CIRCE, the daughter of the Sun-[sovereign], and that her most precious heritage, the Scriptures, became clothed with a cover on which is a name derived from the grand-daughter of the Sun-[sovereign] Apollo, namely : BYBLE or BYBLIS or BIBLIS.

At this point you may ask: But the word biblos, meaning “book”, is in the Greek New Testament; it is an innocent word, simply meaning “book”? The reply to this is: Firstly, “Bible” almost identically resembles the name of this female deity, Byble, while it resembles less the Greek biblos, biblion, or biblia. And secondly, there are quite a number of other Greek word in the Greek New Testament which are derived from, or, later on given to, idol’s names. Whether they were derived from, or later given to, idol’s name, can be disputed, but the former was the case in the vast majority of instances. A thorough study of the subject impresses upon us the ancient existence of these names of pagan [sovereigns].

Hebrew was the only heavenly language spoken from Sinai, and all of Israel heard and understood it. Again, in the New Testament we read how Yahushúa spoke to the apostle Paul on the road to Damascus in the Hebrew language, Acts 26: 14. On the other hand, Greek, like all the languages of the nations, was a pagan language, its vocabulary being in existence long before the Glad Tidings reached them. Like all the languages of the pagan nations, its vocabulary consisted of many names of their [sovereigns]. The reason? They were not guided by the Law of YHWH that prohibited His people, “Make no mention of the names of other mighty ones, nor let it be heard from your mouth,” Exod. 23;13. Even after the Greeks and other pagan nations heard the Glad Tidings, and accepted the Messiah, the majority of them were anti-Judaistic, some little and some much, and therefore did not have the same reverence for the Law that was given in the Old Testament, as was expected from Israel, and from us too. Secondly, in their enthusiasm to win converts, they did compromise much. This is called “syncretism“.

b) Charis – In the Hebrew of the Old Testament we find a very common word Chen, which simply means: favour. This word Chen was correctly rendered “favour” in the Old Testament of the American translations (American Standard Version, New American Standard Bible, Smith-Goodspeed Translation, Rotherham Version, New International Version, New World Translation), as well as in the English Ferrar Fenton Translation and New English bible. However, when this same word is used in the Greek of the New Testament, we find the word charis. This word was also known as grace, better known in its Latin form gratia.

From the English word “grace”, “charismatic” and “charity” have come to us. Why was the generally accepted rendering “favour” (unmerited favour) not extended into the New Testament as well? The New Testament is based on the Old Testament is it not? The New Testament is but a continuation of the Old Testament. Its authors were Hebrews, they spoke Aramaic and or Hebrew, just like the authors of the Old Testament. Why then was a foreign word introduced which was unashamedly adopted from (or identified with) the name of a female (sovereign)? Yes, any dictionary or encyclopaedia will verify this. This Greek (sovereign’s) name, Charis, is found in the Greek New Testament, no less than 127 times, translated as “grace” in the English translations instead of “favour”, as it should have been, and as has correctly been done, indeed, in 6 places in the King James Version’s New Testament, namely, Luke 1:30, Luke 2:52, Acts 2:47, Acts 7:10, Acts 7:46, and Acts 25:3. Who was this Charis? She was the wife of Hephaistos the fire-[sovereign].221 She is identified with Aphrodite, both being names for the glistening dawn similar to the Sanskrit Ushas,221 the Dawn [sovereign] of the Indians, similar to the Greek Eos and daughter of Zeus and Here.222 In the plural form, Charites, we find the commonly known “Three Charites” or “Three Graces”, three pretty young female [sovereigns], either stark naked or else very scantily dressed,223 being the three daughters of Helios, the Sun-[sovereign].223

Before we proceed to this “luck” as a word, we would like to emphasis the fact that the idea of “luck” in itself is totally un-Scriptural, just like “fortune”. This is the reprimand of Isa. 65:11, namely, that “good luck” and “fortune” are being relied on, instead of us relying on YHWH . We should be entirely dependent on His blessings, which we can only receive from him if we live a life dedicated to Him and in obedience to His Word — His Son.

The word “Luck”, derived from a name for the Sun-[sovereign], is not found as such in the older English translations of the Scriptures, but the words “lucky” and “un-lucky” appear seven times in the Good New Bible. However, it is most frequently used in our everyday language. In the German, Netherlands and Afrikaans versions the word is used indeed as gluck or geluk, the latter, and probably the former too, being a word derived from the original form, luk. This fact can be verified in Woordenboek der Nederlandsche Taal, vol. VIII, part II, pp. 3304 – 3306. We read here that luk was originally a vox media, a spiritistic medium. Also, that luk was also written luck, luc, lucke, lok, lock (pp. 3304 and 3306). On p. 3305 it states that Luk was also the name of a “personified Goddess of Luck.” In The Oxford English Dictionary, vol. VII, p. 486, we read that the ultimate etymology of “Luck” or middle High Dutch gelucke, or Middle High German gelucke, is “obscure”. Walshe, a Concise German Etymological Dictionary, under “Gluck”, also states that the origin of this word is obscure. So, once again, “the [sovereign] of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4), Satan, has blinded the eyes, has deceived the whole world (Rev. 12:9).

The common everyday saying “One for luck“, is most probably just a continuation of the old pagan Nordic expression, “One for god and one for Wod (Wodin or Wodan), and one for Lok“, of which we read of in Karl Helm, Altgermanische Religions geschichte, p. 265. Please remember that the above quoted Netherlands dictionary stated that luck, luk and lok are just different spellings for the same word. Forlong, Encyclopedia of Religions, vol. 2, p. 463, says that Luk is an ancient root for “light” and related to Loki. In Gray’s Mythology of All Races, vol. IX, p. 253, we read of “Luk the highest deity, as he was known in the Caroline Islands.” Jobes, Dictionary of Mythology Folklore and Symbols, on p. 1024, states that Luk was the highest primordial deity of the Caroline Islands. On the same page we read of “Lug, the Sun-deity himself” and again of “Lugus, Gaelic Sun-deity.” Jacob Grimm, Teutonic Mythology, reveals more of the obscure origin of this mysterious [sovereign]. The names Logi and Loki were merged in times of old.225 He further points out the apparent roots for these names to be: lucere, luken.226 He also reveals that Locke was the Danish for the burning sun, and the Jutland’s Lokke was the heat of the sun, and that “Loki, is by turns taken…for sun, fire, giant or devil.”226 Luka was also known as the fire-[sovereign], as we read on p. 242.

What does the word “Lucifer” basically mean? All dictionaries tell us it means luc or luci, plus fer or ferre, that means: light-bringer. According to some mythologists, Lucifer was the son of Zeus (Sky-[sovereign])and Eos (Dawn-[sovereign]).227 In the King James Version we read only once of Lucifer, and that is in Isa. 14:12 where the king of Babylon is called: Lucifer. This was taken over from the Latin Vulgate, and many scholars prefer to use other words which more correctly translate the Hebrew Helel, pronounced: Hailail or Heileil. This word basically means “the shining one” or “the bright one”. Apart from the interpretation of this king of Babylon as being “Lucifer”, we find some calling him “morning star”. Others, with good documented evidence, believe that Helel (Heileil) is Jupiter…which later became the sun-[sovereign], also called Marduk-Jupiter228 – Marduk being the well-known Babylonian Sun-[sovereign]. J.W. McKay made a thorough study of this Helel in his article, Helel and the Dawn-[sovereignness], in Vetus Testamentum, XX (1970), pp. 451-464, and he also mentions the strong evidence for Helel (Heileil) being the Sun-deity or being Jupiter. According to Isa. 14:12, Helel is the son of Dawn or Daybreak. Most pagan nations have the myth of the female Dawn-[sovereign] giving her birth to her son, the Sun-[sovereign]. Thus, this Scripture reveals to us that the “king of Babylon” is indeed the Shining One, the Sun, or Jupiter. We must remember that the [sovereigns] of Babylon were made kings, and also that their kings were named after their [sovereigns], who were (in almost all cases) Sun-[sovereigns]. We must not be misled by any man-made interpretation of Isa.14. The emphasis is on the “king of Babylon” and not on Satan. The [sovereignness of the] Sun may be a symbol of — or even an adopted guise — of Satan. It could be that Satan used the Sun to catch the masses with, and to detract YHWH’s people from their Creator, the One who is to be worshiped — the One who created the sun. The sun is to be regarded only as part of the creation, and nothing more — and certainly not to be worshiped. Identifying Lucifer with Satan is an idea that came later.

Let us first see what and who this Helel (Heileil, Hailail) of Isa. 14:12 is. In verse 4 he is called “the king of Babylon”. This Shining One, Heileil, is the one who has said in his heart, “I will ascend into heave, I will exalt my throne above the stars of The Mighty One; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation…I will be like the Most High.”

We should therefore repent of the idea of depending on “luck”, of wishing one another “good luck” (the GD of Isa. 65:11), and should rather speak of the blessing, and seek the blessing, of YHWH. Also, the revealed evidence of the Sun- or Sky-[sovereign] being the origin of Luk, Lok, Luck, Lug, Loki and Lucifer, should inspire us to worship the Father in the Spirit and in Truth, John 4:23-24. We should also be alerted to the Scriptural revelation of Helel (Heileil), the Shining One, being the King of Babylon, and rather seek to serve the “King of the Jews” – the title which was given to our Messiah and which is found no less than 18 times in Scripture!

The Hebrew word “The Mighty One” (as well as “el” and “eloah”), has been translated theos in Greek, similar to the related dios in Greek, deus in Latin, related to the similar dius and divus in Latin.134 The Latin dies (day) also originates from the same word, namely, dieu or its related deieu and diuos. 134 Related to this are the Greek Dieus or Zeus, the Teutonic Ziu, the Roman Diovis or Jovis, and the Roman equal of Zeus, namely Jupiter, formed from Dies-piter.135 Most linguists trace these words back to the Vedic deva, corresponding to the Latin deus, meaning “bright”, and the Indo-European Djeus, also meaning “bright” or “shining”. And this Djeus gave rise to the Old Indian Dyaus and Greek Zeus.136 Dr. A.B. Cook, Zeus – A Study in Ancient Religion, vol. II, p. 276, relates that Hellenic names which are derived from Zeus, e.g. Diodoros, Diogenes, Diomedes, have for their element Dio- and others have Deo-or Deos. Jacob Grimm, Teutonic Mythology, translated by J. Stallybrass, chapter IX, traces all these words back to “the root div, which, while enabling us to make up a fuller formula div, tiv, zio yield the meanings ‘brightness, sky, day, god’. Of sanskrit words, dyaus stands the closest to the Greek and German gods’ names Zeus, Tius.” Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, p. 16, relates, “Deva…is derived from the Sanskrit Div, ‘to shine’…when Sun-worship was engrafted on the Patriarchal faith, the visible splendour of the deified luminary might be suggested by the name.” In the same book, pp. 323 and 20, we read that Demeter, the Great Mother, was called Deo by Sophocles, and she was the mother of Bacchus. Bacchus, the Sun-[sovereign], is also identified with Attes, the son of Cybele, and Attes was also known as Deoius. On p. 95 we also read that the Moon-(sovereign) was known as Deus Lunus. The feminine Moon-[sovereignness] was also known as Diana.137

With the root div or deva or diu all meaning “bright”, or to “shine”, it is easy to comprehend the heathen nations’ affinity for, and worship of, the Sun, the bright sky, the Sky-deity – the deity that brings the day of daylight. These roots are still found in the English words “divine”, divinity” and deity” – all derived from the bright Sky-(sovereign) or Sun-(sovereign). Does it matter? Yes, if the ancient tribes called their mighty ones: Deva, Dyaus, or anything similar, traceable to the Sky-[sovereign], or Sun-[sovereign], we should eliminate from our vocabulary the words “divine” and “deity”, which we have erroneously been taught to apply to the One that we love and His Son. He commanded us, “make no mention of the name of other mighty ones, not let it be heard from your mouth,” Exod. 23:13. Secondly, the word “The Mighty One” means: mighty one, just as “The Mighty One” means Mighty One, and it has nothing to do with “shining” or “brightness” or “daylight” or “day” or “sky”. Thirdly, we should be careful not to fall away from the True Worship, namely, worshiping YHWH, and His Son. We must be in the Eternal Covenant with the Law of YHWH written into our hearts — and written in our minds, Heb. 8:10 and 10:16. If not, the same destiny will be our heritage, as we are warned of, “Then The Mighty One turned and gave them up to worship the host of heaven,” Acts 7:42.

Donaldson in his New Cratylus points out that “Th” is frequently pronounced as “Dh” in Greek, thus Theos and Dheos could be the same, if only in pronunciation. Further, B.C. Dietrich, The Origin of Greek Religion, p. 288, reveals to us a pair of deities, Theos and Thea. This proves that Theos is not only a title, but also the name of a Greek idol. The origin of the word (or name) Theos is disputed, but Prof. F. Max Muller feels very strongly that “Theos must remain part of the same cluster of words a Zeus, Dios, Dione,…Sanskrit Dyaus, Deva, Latin Jupiter, Diovis, Jovis, Diana, Deus, Lithuanian diva, Old Netherlands tivar…The Greek Theos, if not derived from the root div, has found no other root as yet from which it could have been derived, so as to account for its meaning, as well as its form.”138

Although the word Theos is admittedly mostly used as a title, it has been used as a name, and therefore we dare not call our The Mighty One by the name of a pagan ‘mighty one,’ Exod. 23:13. But even as a title, the word theos is not acceptable, even if it does appear in the Greek New Testament. There are many scholars who are convinced that most of the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew or Aramaic, and that the Greek New Testament is only a translation of the Hebrew/Aramaic original. Other scholars have been less radical and have proposed that, if the New Testament was originally written in Greek, our oldest manuscripts contain substitutions in its rewritten form, because of the evidence that the Tetragrammaton was used in the original New Testament, but has since then been substituted in the oldest extant manuscripts. The Tetragrammaton has been substituted in texts of the New Testament which are quoted from the Old Testament. Sometimes it is substituted by Kurios, such as Matt. 21:9 (quoted from Ps. 118:26), or substituted by Theos, such as Matt. 4:4 (quoted from Deut. 8:3). However, for the most part, Theos is used in the New Testament as a translation of the Hebrew The Mighty One (or el or eloah), such as Heb. 1:9 (quoted from Ps. 45:7). The word theos should not have been used, because, in many instances this word as a title has been used as a substitute for the Name of YHWH, and this is explicitly forbidden in Deut. 4:2 and Deut. 12:4. Secondly, the word The Mighty One means: Mighty One, whereas Theos is probably derived from the root div (see above), which means: to shine. Thirdly, the word theos has been used as an important means of merging Zeus-worship with the Messianic Worship. Dr. A.B. Cook in his monumental research on Zeus – A Study in Ancient Religion, vol. I, p. 233, remarks on how “the gentiles conceived Jehovah (as Cook called Him) as Zeus.” Zeus was also called Theos, for instance, and Zeus Hypsistos was also known as Theos Hypsistos (pp. 882, 883, 884, 886, 969).

With the Jewish tradition of hiding YHWH’s Name and the Greeks calling all mighty ones theoi (plural of theos), the assimilation and merger of the two mighty ones was made easier – especially if they both can be identified as being “the Great Sky-deity”, or both can be identified as the Sun. We have already seen how the Patriarchs of Alexandria and Rome began calling Yahushúa “The Sun of Righteousness”, even “the True Sun“. By that time all the idols of the mediterranean countries were identified with the Sun -Apollo, Hercules, Adonis, Mithras, Dionysus, Serapis, Osiris, Horus, Jupiter, Zeus, Hades, Helios, Sol, Oannes, Hermes, Bacchus, Attis, Orpheus, Ixion, Amen, Amen-Ra etc.

It is well known that at some stage the Greeks were trying to identify all the idols with Zeus. It is also known that for a long time, they were avoiding the names of their idols by just calling them by the title, or generic name, theos. In L.H. Gray’s Mythology of All Races, vol. 1, p. 312, we read, “Only in a few localities, notably in Crete, does any form of the name of Zeus survive, but the god still lives under the title Theos (‘God’), a title so conveniently equivocal that the Christian can use it without heresy and at the same time square perfectly with the ancient pagan belief.” What a clear testimony of religious syncretism! Our Mighty One, or His Son, is called Theos, and so is Zeus called Theos. What does it matter? Just this: the words Theos and Zeus are derived from the Sky-[sovereign] or the Sun-[sovereign], and therefore unacceptable to our Mighty One.

Any form of Sun-worship, or any derivative of Sun-worship which has been adopted into Pure Worship, has been designated by Him to be a “wicked abomination“, Eze. 8:9. Apart from Prof. F. Max Muller’s statement as to the origin of the word “Zeus” (see above), we also read Dr. A.B. Cook’s scholarly conclusion, “The supreme deity of the ancient Greeks, during their historical period at least, was Zeus. His name, referable to a root that means ‘to shine’ may be rendered ‘the Bright One‘. And since a whole series of related words in the various languages of the Indo-European family is used to denote ‘day’ or ‘sky’, it can be safely inferred that Zeus was called ‘the Bright One’ as being the god of the bright or day-light sky.”139 Dr. Cook then says in a foot note on the same page, “The Greek Zeus and the Old Indian Dyaus represent an Indo-European dieu-s from the root di: die : deia, ‘to shine’.” Later on, as we have previously mentioned, Zeus became more directly identified with the Sun. Osiris, the Sun-[sovereign] of Egypt, was later identified with Serapis, the Sun-[sovereign] in Alexandria. Helios, of course, was the Sun-[sovereign] of the Greeks. Zeus was identified with all of them, and the phrase “Zeus Helios Great Serapis” was well known to be an exceedingly common formula in the 2nd and 3rd centuries C.E. 140

Many scholars have pointed out the similarity between Zeus-worship and Serapis-worship, as both were identified with the Sun-[sovereign]. But more so, the Serapis statues most resemble those of Zeus.141 Serapis, the Sun-idol of Alexandria – the same city where Clement and Origen were leaders of the “first theological seminary” – was assimilated to all other Sun-[sovereigns].141 The christian apologist Minucius Felix, writing in the 2nd or 3rd century, comments that this Egyptian (Alexandrian) cult of Serapis has been completely adopted by the Romans.142 Not only did the statues of Zeus and Serapis resemble each other, but we, like others,143 are alarmed at the striking similarity between these statues and that of the images of our Messiah which have been made by the Church! 

Further evidence of the fusion of the worship of Yahushúa with that of Serapis comes from the historical record of the Roman emperor Hadrian who worshiped Serapis as well as Christ when he visited Alexandria.144 But, even worse, whenever a Christian church was erected on the site of the Serapeum (temple of Serapis), Jerome would exclaim, “The Egyptian Serapis has become Christian!”145 Such was the spirit of syncretism, of identifying pagan idols with Yahushúa.

Instead of “deity”, “divinity”, or “god”, we should use the Scriptural “The Mighty One” or “mighty one” or “mighty”. This latter word, which is an adjective, could well be used as a noun. Instead of “divine”, we should say “as of The Mighty One”, or “as of the Mighty One”, or “Mighty – like”.

A prophecy for the end-time is given in Isa. 65:11 wherein our Mighty One warns of the apostasy of His people, “But you are those who forsake YHWH…who prepare a table for Gad, and who furnish a drink offering for Meni.” – Revised Authorized Version. All commentators agree that Gad is a pagan deity, and so is Meni. Gad is usually interpreted as the well-known Syrian or Canaanite [sovereign] of “Good Luck” or “Fortune“, and Meni the [sovereign] of “Destiny”. This Gad is written in the Hebrew as GD, but the Massoretes afterwards vowel – pointed it, adding an “a”, to five us “Gad”. However, we find other references in Scripture to a similar [sovereign], if not the same one, also spelled GD in the Hebrew text, but this time vowel – pointed to read “Gawd” or “God“, in Jos. 11:17, 12:7, 13:5, where we find: “Baal-Gawd” or “Baal-God“, according to the vowel – pointed Masoretic Hebrew text. This Baal – Gawd or Baal – God was obviously a place named after their [sovereign].159

The astrologers identified Gad with Jupiter,159 the Sky-[sovereign] or the Sun-[sovereign]. Other sources of research also testify of “Gad” being the Sun-[sovereign]. Rev. Alexander Hislop wrote, “There is reason to believe that Gad refers to the Sun-godThe name Gad…is applicable to Nimrod, whose general character was that of a Sun-(sovereign)…Thus then, if Gad was the ‘Sun-(sovereign)’, Meni was very naturally regarded as ‘The Lord Moon.’ “160 Keil and Delitzsch, Commentaries on the Old [Covenant], comments on Isa. 65:11, “There can be no doubt, therefore, that Gad, the god of good fortune,..is Baal (Bel) as the [sovereign] of good fortune…this is the deified planet Jupiter…Gad is Jupiter…Mene is Dea Luna…Rosenmuller very properly traces back the Scriptural rendering to this Egyptian view, according to which Gad is the sun-[sovereign], and Meni the lunar goddess as the power of fate.”161 Isa. 65:11 tells us than that YHWH’s people have forsaken Him, and in the end-time are found to be serving Gad, the Sun-deity of “Good Luck”, and Meni, the Moon-deity of “Destiny”.

As pointed out above, this Gad (GD with and “a” vowel – pointing) is probably the same deity as we read of in the book of Joshua, GD with a vowel-pointing of “aw” or “o”, Massoretes cannot always be relied on, but we can rely on the Hebrew Scriptures before the vowel-pointing was done. It could well be that the GD of Isa. 65:11 is the same as the “Gawd” or “God” of the book of Joshua. But, let us not try to establish a fact on an assumption. Let us rather do some research on the word “God”.

The word “God” (or god), like the Greek Theos (or theos) is used in our versions as a title, a generic name, usually. It translates the Hebrew The Mighty One (or The Mighty One), El (or el), and Eloah. However, in quite a few places it is used as a name whenever it is used as a substitute for the Tetragrammaton, the Name of our Father, e.g. Matthew 4:4 etc. If the word “God” is then used as a substitute for the Name, it must be accepted that the word “God” has become a name, again. How and when did this title or name become adopted into our modern languages? Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th edition, says, “GOD – the common Teutonic word for a personal object of religious worship…applied to all those superhuman beings of the heathen mythologies. The word ‘god’ on the conversion of the Teutonic races to Christianity was adopted as the name of the one Supreme Being…” Webster’s Twentieth Century Dictionary, Unabridged, 1st edition, says, “The word is common to Teutonic tongues…It was applied to heathen deities and later, when the Teutonic peoples were converted to Christianity, the word was elevated to the Christian sense.” James Hastings, Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics, vol. 6, p. 302, reads, “After the conversion of the Teutons to Christianity the word came to be applied also to the Christian Deity…Its etymology and its original meaning are obscure, and have been much debated.” J.G.R. Forlong, Encyclopedia of Religions, on “God”, says, “It is remarkable that philologists are unable to decide the origin of this familiar Teutonic word.” There is much confusion in the European languages between the words gud (good) and god. The Scandinavian languages, like the old Anglo-Saxon, called god gud and called gud (good) god. Calling good god and god gud is bad enough to confuse us. Even worse is that the Old Nether lands languages regarded god as an idol and gud as the correct [sovereign]! Jacob Grimm recorded162 this for us, as well as Julius Pokorny and Jan de Vries.163 This inconsistency of spelling confuses us, as it must have confused the people in those early centuries who were still completely or partially ignorant of the True Mighty One and His Name. Jacob Grimm asserts that this was done because of fear, “Such a fear may arise from two causes: a holy name must not be abused, or an unholy dreaded name, e.g., that of the devil, has to be softened down by modifying its form”, and then gives examples.162 Other modifying its form”, and then gives examples.162 Other scholars have explained that the names of national [sovereigns] were either hid, or modified, in order to prevent their enemies getting hold of these names — enemies who might use it…against them. Another reason for this changing of spelling of idols’ names was the ritual of abrenuntiatio, i.e. a solemn renouncing of the names of major [sovereigns], whenever a pagan became converted to Christianity. One of the three major idols of the Teutonic tribes was called Saxnot. It is well documented how this name was renounced and later on came back in a disguised form, Saxneat. We even found that some idols’ name were spelt 17 different ways.

We found further evidence that “gott” or “god” was not only a title, but used as a name too, amongst the Teutonic tribes. Simrock discovered songs wherein “Gott” was used as a beiname for the [sovereign] Odin.164 In German, beiname means: surname (or epithet, or appellation). We further found “Goda” as a proper name of an idol.165 Moreover, the same author relates how Wodan (or Woden), “the name of the highest god”, also called Wotan and Odan, was also called Godan.166 The Teutonic masculine deities each had its female consort or counterpart. Thus we read that this [sovereign’s] female consort was frau Gode.167 It is commonly known that our Wednesday was named after (Woden) or Wotan. In Westphalian we find this day being called Godenstag.168

If the Teutonic pagans called all their idols by the generic name “gott” or “god“,  shall we continue to call the One that we love by the same generic name/title/or name? Why do we not translate the title The Mighty One (or El or Eloah) with it proper meaning: Mighty One or Mighty? Also, in those places where “God” has become a substitute name for “YHWH”, shall we continue to invite the wrath of The Mighty One by doing this? He has commanded us that we should not destroy His Name (Deut. 12:3c and 4, KJV or RSV), [and]…is sorely displeased with those who have forgotten His Name for Baal (Jer. 23:27), remembering that Baal really was the Sun-deity. “Therefore My people shall know My Name,” Isa. 52:6. “YHWH’s voice cries to the city – wisdom shall see Your Name,” YHWH 6:9. “For The Mighty One will save Zion.. and those who love His Name shall dwell in it,” Ps. 69:35-36. Also, and even more applicable to this present study, we will stop substituting His Name with Baal (Jer. 23:27 and Hos. 2:16) – that great Sun-[sovereign], also known as Bel, who was the primary deity of Babylon – whether “Baal” applies to the name of the Sun-[sovereign], or whether “Baal” became a title. We are to stop substituting His Name with anything that pertains to a Sun-[sovereign], or even only a title with an idolatrous origin, notwithstanding attempts to justify the “changed meaning of the word”.

They called upon His Name right back in Gen. 12:8 and 13:4, and as “Abraham” again in Gen. 21:33. Abraham called the place in Moria “YHWH Yireh”, Gen. 22:14. Isaac called upon the Name YHWH, Gen. 26:25. Jacob used the Name, Gen. 28:16. Leah used it, Gen. 29:33 and 35. Moses proclaimed the Name of YHWH, Deut. 32:3. David declared YHWH’s name, Ps. 22:22, and so did our Messiah, Heb. 2:12, John 17:6 and 17:26. 

The Jews developed a superstitious belief, after their Babylonian captivity, that the Name of YHWH should be avoided, except for certain occasions i n the Temple at Jerusalem. This was done in fear of profanation of the Name, and to avoid the use of the Name by others. This lead to the idea that the Name is “ineffable”.

However, this was a pagan doctrine. We read n Legge, Forerunners and Rivals of Christianity, p. 37, “The ineffability of divine names was an old idea in Egypt, especially in the Osirian religion…The name of Marduk (Sun-idol) of Babylon is in the same way declared ineffable in an inscription of Neri…The Name of Yahweh became ineffable directly after Alexander. See Halevy, Revue des Etudes juives, t. IX (1884), p. 172. In every case, the magical idea that the god might be compelled by utterance of his secret name seems to be at the root of the practice.”

 When the Messianic Faith was proclaimed, the same thing happened. Maximus of Madaura wrote in approximately 390 C.E., “There is only one God, sole and supreme, without beginning or parentage, whose energies, diffused through the world, we invoke under various names, because we are ignorant of his real name.”146 This is in direct contrast to what YHWH commanded us in Exod. 20:3 and Exod. 23:13, and what Paul tried to rectify in Acts 17:23.

 Scholars attest to their findings that many of the Greek idols, or their names, originated in Egypt. Other idols, or their names, are traceable to their Vedic or Sanskrit roots. In our study of the Indo-European languages, we trace many words, names, as well as idols’ names, in many of the European languages. One is astonished to notice how some of them are only found in the southernmost countries and only again in the Nordic countries. This will help us in our search for the origin of Herr, the German word for “Lord” — both of them being the substitute for the Name, YHWH…This substitution has no Scriptural ground. Indeed, it is directly in contrast to our The Mighty One’s command in Deut. 4:2 and Deut. 12:3c and 4…

The Latin and Greek names for a certain Egyptian Sun-Sun-[sovereigns] are Horus, Horos. However, in the Egyptian language his name is written Hr and pronounced: Her,147 or Heru – the ancient Sky-[sovereign] or Sun-[sovereign] of Egypt. Budge, From Fetish to God in Ancient Egypt, p.6, clearly states, “the sun as a god was called HER at a very early period.” Other Sun-[sovereigns] were to follow, bearing the name Her as the first part of their names: Hercules, the well-known Sun-[sovereign], Hermes, the Greek name for Mercury and in whose name a strong religion became established in Alexandria and Egypt just before Christianity came. Some Teutonic deities’ names also started with Her, namely Hermod and possibly Hermann, too. Amongst, the Teutons we find the names of a deity Er or Heru.148 Thorr, the great thunder-[sovereign], was also called hergot, 149 and again Herre Got.150 This same author, Jacob Grimm, perhaps the greatest scholar of Germanic languages, as well as of Germanic mythology, comments on an inscription “‘der herre’ seems to mean the sun.”151 it becomes obvious to all that this word was later used as a title and “here is said of heathen gods, angels, emperors.” 152 Other evidence as to Her or Har originating as a name, is found where the Teutonic [sovereign] Odinn is called Har,153 as well as Har or Herjan.154 Other scholars trace the origin back to the Sanskrit Svar (heaven), and the Zendic Hvar, which is the Sun.155 Har also means “bright”,156 and Herman-sul is a Sun-[sovereign].156

But again, Zeus, the great Sky-[sovereign], who later became identified as the Sun-[sovereign], was involved. Zeus was known as Herros in the Aeolian dialect, 157 or as Heros.158 The feminine of this word is Here, also known as Hera. She was the Queen of the Sky, and the sister as well as wife of Zeus, and known as Juno in Rome.

Whether it be the male Her, Herr, Herros, Heros or Heru — it all originates from Sun- or Sky-worship. Similarly, the female Here or Hera also originates from Sky-worship. Our Heavenly Father’s Name has been substituted with a so-called title. but this title traces back to the name of the Sun-[sovereign]. Likewise, Yahushúa has also been called Herr or Heer. Therefore, He also became identified with the Sun-[sovereign].

At this stage we would also like to look at the dutch Heere and the Afrikaans Here. These are plurals of Heer, even if only as a “plural majesty”, but they also trace back to the Sun-[sovereign] Her or Heru. but in its plural form the Afrikaans Here is being spelt exactly like the Queen of Heaven’s name.

Although it is commonly taught that Herr, Heer and Here are titles, the Indogermanische Etymologishes Worterbuch or Julius Pokorny, on p. 615 of the 1st volume, admits that these three words probably originated as “names of gods”.

What does Scripture say will happen in the end-time?

* “For I will take from her mouth the name of the Baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more,” Hosea 2:17. the name Baal became a title later on, but most commentators and scholars reveal its origin: the Sun-[sovereign].

* “O YHWH…the Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, ‘Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things.’ Will a man make The Mighty One for himself, which are not The Mighty One? Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know My hand and My might; and they shall know that My Name is YHWH ,” Jer. 16:19-21.

* “Therefore My people shall know My Name,” Isa. 52:6.

* “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of YHWH ,” Zeph. 3:9.

* “‘It shall be in that day’, says YHWH of hosts, ‘that I will cut off the names of the idols…”Zech. 13:2.

* “They will call on My Name and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; and each will say, ‘YHWH is my The Mighty One,'” Zech. 13:9.

* “And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the Name of YHWH shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as YHWH has said, among the remnant whom YHWH calls,” Joel 2:32.

* “For I will make My Separated Name known in the midst of My people Israel,” Eze. 39:7.

* “If we had forgotten the Name of our The Mighty One, or stretched out our hands to a foreign The Mighty One, would not The Mighty One sear this out?” Psalm 44:20-21.

* “Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek Your Name O YHWH…That men may know that You Whose Name alone is YHWH, are the Most High over all the earth,” Psalm 83:16-18.

* Has our Messiah not clearly stated in John 17:26b that He will make His Father’s Name known to us? Are we allowing Him, Who works in us, to do this work of restitution, of restoring, or giving us pure lips, “a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of YHWH”? Zeph. 3:9.

Similar to the foregoing components of Sun-worship which had been adopted into the church, we have similar proof of the adoption of a pagan word or name, although less convincing of its absolute solar origin. However, we can clearly see that, with the Greeks using both the Greek words Messias (a transliteration) and Christos (a translation) for the Hebrew Mashiach (Anointed), the word Christos was far more acceptable to the pagans who were worshiping Chreston, Chrestos, and perhaps also those worshiping Krista. But we will come to that later.

The Hebrew word Mashiach has been translated in the Old Testament of the King James Version as “Anointed” in most places, but as “Messiah” in two places, namely Dan. 9:25 and 26. This word is a title, although it was used as an appellative (name) later on. Thus, this word was faithfully translated as “Anointed” in the Old Testament and only in Dan 9:25 and 26 was its Hebrew character retained in the transliterated “Messiah”. Likewise, we find that the Greeks also admitted their transliterated form Messias in the Greek New Testament in John 1:41 and John 4:25. Why then did they introduce or use the word Christos in the rest of the Greek New Testament? Even if they had preferred Christos to Messias, why did our translators transliterate the word as “Christ”? Why did they not transliterate the word, as was done in Dan 9:25 and 26, as “Messiah”, seeing that the Greeks had also accepted their Greek transliteration of the word, namely Messias in John 1:41 and John 4:25? Ferrar Fenton’s translation, The Complete Bible in Modern English, used “Messiah” instead of “Christ” in most places where the word is used alone, except when used as the combination “Jesus Christ”. Similarly, the New English Bible has used “Messiah” in its New Testament in many places. The Good News Bible has restored the word “Messiah” in no less than 70 places in its New Testament. The New International Version gives the alternative “Messiah” in almost all places, by means of a footnote. Dr. Bullinger in The Companion Bible, appendix 98 IX, says, “Hence, the Noun (Christos) is used of and for the Messiah, and in the [Scriptures] should always be translated ‘Messiah‘”. Also, Benjamin Wilson in his Emphatic Diaglott has restored the words “Anointed” and “Messiah” in many places.

Yahushúa Himself said in John 4:22, “For salvation is from the Jews,” NASB. Not only was our Messiah born from a Hebrew virgin, but also all of His Saving Message, the teachings, “the root and fatness” (Rom. 11:17), the Glad Tidings, “spiritual things” (Rom. 15:27), “the citizenship of Israel” (Eph. 2:12, Rotherham), “covenants of promise” (Eph. 2:12), “the spiritual blessings” (Rom. 15:27, NIV and TEV) – are all from the Jews! That well-known scholar of the Old Testament, as well as New Testament, Prof. Julius Wellhausen, who in all his works expressed his hatred towards Pharisaical Judaism, nevertheless wrote the following bold words, “Jesus…was a Jew. he proclaimed no new faith, but He taught that the Will of God must be done. The Will of God stands for Him, as for the Jews, in eh Law, and in the other holy Scriptures that are classed with it.”200 Yahushúa could not have been known as Christos amongst His people. His title was known as Mashiach in Hebrew, and Mesiha in Aramaic – to those who accepted Him as such, Matt. 16:16, John 6:69 etc. This title is easily transliterated as “Messiah”, and is generally accepted, and has been accepted, just like the Greek Messias. Why then have they not persisted with it? Even if they wanted to translate it, why have they not translated it as “Anointed“, as was done in the English translation of the King James Version’s Old Testament?

Our research into this matter has produced some revealing similarities between Christos and certain pagan names and titles. F.D. Gearly, writing in The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, vol. 1, pp. 571-572, says, “the word Christos…was easily confused with the common Greek proper name Chrestos, meaning ‘good.” He also quotes a French theological dictionary which says, “It is absolutely beyond doubt that Christus and Chrestus, Christiani and Chrestiani, were used indifferently by the profane and Christian authors of the first two centuries of our era.” He continues, “in Greek, ‘e’ and ‘i’ were similarly pronounced and often confused, the original spelling of the word should be determined only if we could fix its provenance (origin)…The problem is further complicated by the fact that the word Christianos is a Latinism…and was contributed neither by Jews nor by the Christians themselves.” He quotes various scholars to support his proposition that the word Christianos was introduced from one of three origins: (a) The Roman police (b) The Roman populace (c) Unspecified pagan provenance (origin).” he then proceeds, “The three occurences of ‘Christian’ in the NT suggest that the term was at this time primarily used as a pagan designation. Its infrequent use in the NT indicates not so much lateness of origin as pagan provenance (origin).”

This almost sensational admission as to the confusion and uncertainty between Christos and Chrestos, Christus and Chrestus, Christiani and Chrestiani, is well documented and shared and published by other scholars too, 201 as well as by the Early Fathers: Justin Martyr, Tertullian, Lanctantius and others.201

Who was this Chrestos or Chreston with which Christos became confused with? We have already seen that Chrestos was a common Greek proper name, meaning “good”. further, we see in Pauly-Wissowa, Realencyclopaedie, under “Chrestos”, that the inscription Chrestos is to be seen on a Mithras relief in the Vatican. We also read in J.M. Robertson, Christianity and Mythology, p. 331, that Osiris, the Sun-[sovereign] of Egypt, was reverenced as Chrestos. We also read of the heretic Gnostics who used the name Chreistos.202 The confusion, and syncretism, is further evidenced by the oldest Christian building known, the Synagogue of the Marcionites on Mt. Hermon, built in the 3rd century, where the Messiah’s title or appellation is spelt Chrestos.203 Justin Martyr (about 150 C.E.) said that Christians were Chrestoi or “good“. Tertullian and Lactantius inform us that “the common people usually called Christ Chrestos”. Clement of Alexandria, in the same age, said, “all who believe in Christ are called Chrestoi, that is ‘good men.'”203

The word Christos could even have been more acceptable to the Krishna-worshipers, because the name of Krishna was pronounced, and still is to the present day, as Krista, in many parts of India.204 Thus, we can readily see that the word Christos was easier to convert the pagans with than the word “Messiah”, especially because of the anti-Judaism that prevailed among the pagans. The syncretism between Christos and Chrestos (the Sun-[sovereign] Orsiris), is further elucidated by the fact of emperor Hadrian’s report, who wrote, “There are there (in Egypt) Christians who worship Serapis; and devoted to Serapis, are those who call themselves ‘Bishops of Christ‘.”198 Serapis was another Sun-[sovereign] who superseded Osiris in Alexandria. Once again, we must not falter nor stumble over this confusion among the Gentiles. Rather, we must seek the truth, primarily from the faithfully preserved Old [Covenant] Scriptures – see 2 Tim. 3:16, John 17:17, Ps. 119:105, Isa 40:8. We must worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth, as well as His Son, Yahushúa the Messiah, Who is sitting at His right hand. We do accept every word in the New [Covenant], but we do desire to return to the original Scriptures of the New [Covenant], as far back as we possibly can. As previously mentioned, the Greeks changed Elijah into Helias in the Greek New [Covenant], and the Helios-worshipers must have been overjoyed because of their Sun-deity being assimilated to the Elijah of the Scriptures. To avoid the confusion between Helias and Helios, we should abide by the Hebrew “Elijah”. Likewise, to avoid confusion between Christos and Chrestos, we should abide by the word Anointed – remembering that Osiris the Sun-deity, amongst others, was called Chrestos. Mithras, too, was possibly called Chrestos (see above).

There is not a single authoritative reference source which gives the name Jesus or Iesous as the original name of Yahushúa. All of them admit that the original form of the Name was Jehoshua or Yehoshua to Jesus?

Many Hebrew names of the Old Testament prophets have been “Hellenised” when these names were rewritten in the Greek New Testament. Thus, Isaiah became Isaias, Elisha became Elissaios or Elisseus (Eliseus),and Elijah became Helias in the Greek New Testament. The King James Version ahs retained some of these Hellenised names. Since the King James Version was published, the newer English versions have ignored these Hellenised names of the Greek New [Covenant], and have preferred , quite correctly, to render them as they are found in the Hebrew Old [Covenant], namely: Isaiah, Elisha and Elijah. Incidentally, the similarity between the Hellenised Helias (instead of Elijah) and the Greek Sun-deity Helios, gave rise to the well-known assimilation of these two by the Church. Dr. A.B. Cook, in his book, Zeus – A Study in Ancient Religion, vol. I p. 178 – 179, elaborates on this, quoting the comments of a 5th century Christian poet and others, on this. Imagine it, Elijah identified with Helios, the Greek Sun-deity! Returning to our discussion on the reluctance of the translators to persist with all of the Hellenised names in the Greek of the New [Covenant], one could very well ask: But why did they persist with the Hellenised Iesous of Yahushúa’s Name, and its further Latinised form Iesus? It is accepted by all that His Hebrew name was Yahushúa. So why did the translators of the scriptures not restore it, as they did with the names of the Hebrew prophets? It is generally agreed that our successor to Moses, Joshua. But “Joshua” was not the name of the man who led Israel into the Promised Land. The Greeks substituted the Old Testament “Yehoshua” with Iesous, the same word they used for Yahushúa in the New [Covenant]. Subsequently the Latins came and substituted it with Josue (Iosue) in the Old [Covenant] (which became Josua in German and Joshua in English), but used Iesus in the New [Covenant]. In the Hebrew Scriptures we do not find the word “Joshua”. In every place it is written: Yehoshua. However, after the Babylonian captivity we find the shortened form “Yeshua” in a few places -shortened, because they then omitted the second and third letters, namely: Everyone who sees the names Yehoshua and Iesous will agree: there is no resemblance between the names Yehoshua and Iesous or Iesus.

Before we continue with our study of the word Iesous and Iesus, we would like to point out that we have been led to believe that the correct Name is Yahushúa. He said in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name”. Again, in John 17:11 He prayed to His Father, “…keep them through Your Name which You have given Me”. Therefore, in John 17:11, Yahushúa states that His Father’s Name had been given to Him. Again He repeats this irrefutable fact in the next verse, John 17:12, “…in you Name which You gave Me. And I guarded them (or it).” So, we have Yahushúa’s clear words, in three tests, that His Father’s name was given to Him. Paul also testifies to this in Ephesians 3:14-15. 

Two factors contributed greatly to the substitution and distortion of Yahushúa’s Name. The first was the un-Scriptural superstitious teaching of the Jews that the Father’s Name is not to be uttered, that it is ineffable, that others will profane it when they use it, and that the Name must be “disguised” outside of the temple of Jerusalem.182 Because of the Father’s name being in His Son’s Name, this same disastrous suppression of the Name resulted in them (? the Greeks) giving a Hellenised, in fact a surrogate name for Yahushúa. he did warn us in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name…if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.” The second factor was the strong anti-Judaism that prevailed amongst the Gentiles, as we have already pointed out. The Gentiles wanted a saviour, but not a Jewish one. They loathed the Jews, they even loathed the The Mighty One of the Old Testament. Thus, a Hellenised Saviour was preferred. The Hellenised theological school at Alexandria, led by the syncretising, allegorising, philosophying, Gnostic-indoctrinated Clement and Origen, was the place where everything started to become distorted and adapted to suit the Gentiles. The Messianic Faith, and its Saviour, had to become Hellenised to be acceptable to the Gentiles.

Where did Iesous and Iesus come from? In Bux and Schone, Worterbuch der Antike, under “Jesus”, we read, “JESUS: really named Jehoshua. Iesous (Greek), Iesus (Latin) is adapted from the Greek, possibly from the name of a Greek healing goddess Ieso (Iaso).” Like all authoritative sources, this dictionary admits to the real true name of Yahushúa: Jehoshua (more precisely: Yahushúa). It then states, as most others, that the commonly known substitute, non-original, non-real name “Jesus” was adapted from the Greek. We must remember that Yahushúa was born from a Hebrew virgin, not from a Greek one. His stepfather, His half-brothers and half-sisters, in fact all His people, were Hebrews, Jews. Furthermore, this dictionary then traces the substitute name back to the Latin Iesus, and the Greek Iesous. It then traces the origin of the name Iesous back as being possibly adapted from the Greek healing goddess Ieso (Iaso). To the uniformed I would like to point out that Iaso is the usual Greek form, while Ieso is from the Ionic dialect of the Greeks. This startling discovery, the connection between Ieso (Iaso) and Iesous, is also revealed to us by the large unabridged edition of Liddell and Scott, Greek-English Lexicon, p. 816, under “Iaso”. The third witness comes to us in a very scholarly article by Hans Lamer in Philologische Wochenschrift, No.25, 21 June 1930, pp. 763-765. In this article the author recalls the fact of Ieso being the Ionic Greek goddess of healing. Hans Lamer then postulates, because of all the evidence, that “they changed Ieso into a regular masculine Iesous. This was even more welcome to the Greeks who converted to Christianity.” He then continues, “If the above is true, then the name of our Lord which we commonly use goes back to a long lost form of the name of a Greek goddess of healing. But to Greeks who venerated a healing goddess Ieso, a saviour Iesous must have been most acceptable. The Hellenisation was thus rather clever.” This then is the evidence of three sourced who, like us, do not hide the fact of the Greek name Iesous being related to the Greek goddess of healing. The Hellenisation of Yahushúa’s Name was indeed most cleverly done. To repeat Yahushúa’s words of warning in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.” There is no resemblance or identifiability between the Name, Yahushúa, and the Greek substitute for it, Iesous. The Father’s Name, Yah- or Yahu-, cannot be seen in the Greek Iesous or in the Latin Iesus, neither in the German Jesus, nor in the English Jesus. President Reagan’s name remains the same in all languages. Hitler’s name remains the same in all languages. Even Satan has seen to it that all nations know him by his name: Satan. Satan has seen to it that his own name has been left unmolested!

However, let us further investigate the names Ieso (Iaso) and Iesous. According to ancient Greek religion, Apollo, their great Sun-[sovereign], had a son by the name of Asclepius, the [sovereign] of healing, but also identified with the Sun. This Asclepius had daughters, and one of them was Iaso (Ieso),183 the Greek [soverenness] of healing. Because of her father’s and grandfather’s identities as Sun-[sovereigns], she too is in the same family of Sun-[sovereigns]. Therefor, the name Iesous, which is possibly derived from Ieso, can be traced back to Sun-worship.

We find other related names, all of them variants of the same name, Iasus, Iasion, Iasius, in ancient Greek religion, as being sons of Zeus.184 Even in India we find a similar name Issa or Issi, as surnames for their [sovereign] Shiva.185 Quite a few scholars have remarked on the similarity between the names of the Indian Issa or Issi, the Egyptian Isis and the Greek Iaso.186 In our research on the [sovereign] Isis we made two startling discoveries. The one was that the son of Isis was called Isu by some 187. However, the second discovery yielded even further light: The learned scholar of Egyptian religion, Hans Bonnet, reveals to us in his Real lexikon der Agyptischen Religions geschichte, p. 326, that the name of Isis appears in the hieroglyphic inscriptions as ESU or ES. No wonder it has been remarked, “Between Isis and Jesus as names confusion could arise.”187 This Isis also had a child, which was called Isu by some.187 This Isu and Esu sound exactly like the “Jesu” that we find the Saviour called in the translated Scriptures of many languages, e.g. many African languages. Rev. Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, p. 164, also remarked on the similarity of Jesus and Isis, “IHS – Iesus Hominum Salvator – But let a Roman worshiper of Isis (for in the age of the emperors there were innumerable worshipers of Isis in Rome) cast his eyes upon them, and how will he read them, or course, according to his won well-known system of idolatry: Isis, Horus, Seb.” He then continues with a similar example of “skillful planning” by “the very same spirit, that converted the festival of the Pagan Oannes is not the feast of the Christians Joannes.” (The Hebrew name of the baptizer, and that of the apostle as well, was Yochanan or Yehochanan).

Thus, by supplanting the Name of Yahushúa with that of the Hellenised Iesous (in capitals: IHSOUS), which became the Latinised Iesus, it was easy to make the pagans feel welcome – those pagans who worshiped the Greek Ieso (Iaso), of which he masculine counterpart is Iesous (in capitals: IHSOUS), as well as those who worshiped the Egyptian Esu (Isis). Further evidence of syncretism with the Isis-system is found in A. Kircher, Oedipus Aegypticus, wherein the name of the son of Isis is revealed to us as “Iessus, which signifies Issa, whom they also called Christ in Greek.” Another pagan group of worshipers could also be made to feel at home with the introduction of this surrogate name Iesous (IHSOUS) or Iesus, namely the worshipers of Esus. Jan de Vries hold that Esus was a Gallic [sovereign] comparable to the Scandinavian Odin.188 Odin, of course, was the Scandinavian Sky-[sovereign]. This Gallic or Celtic [sovereign], Esus, has also been identified 189 with Mars, and by others with Mercury, and was regarded to by the special [sovereign] of Paris.189 Just as Iaso, Ieso, Iesous are derived from the Greek word for healing, iasis, we similarly find Isis (more correctly: Esu) and her son Horus (more correctly: Her), regarded as [sovereigns] of healing as well as cosmic [sovereigns],190 or Sun-[sovereigns], by others.

The most disturbing evidence is yet to follow. The abbreviated form of the name Iesous is: Ies or in capitals: IHS, or in Greek the capital for “e” id “H”. This is to be found on many inscriptions made by the Church during the dark Middle Ages. This fact is also well documented and is generally admitted by scholarly sources and ordinary English dictionaries.191 These dictionaries bear witness to the fact if IHS (Ies) being an abbreviated form of IHSOUS (Iesous).

Furthermore, the shocking fact has also been recorded for us that IHS was a mystery surname of Bacchus, and was afterwards taken as initials for Iesous, capitals: IHSOUS.192 We discovered this in a dictionary of mythology and in an encyclopaedia of religion.192 This revelation was confirmed by a third witness, Dr. E.W. Bullinger, The Apocalypse, footnote p. 396, “Whatever meanings of…IHS may be given, the fact remains that it was part of the name of Bacchus…” We then realized, most painfully, that our beloved Messiah was identified with the Greek [sovereign] Bacchus, by giving Yahushúa the surname or other name of Bacchus, namely: IHS or Ies! Bacchus was well known to be a Sun-[sovereign]. Bacchus was also a commonly known name for Tammuz among classical writers.193 Tammuz, as you will remember, was known to be the young returning Sun-deity,194 returning in spring. Bacchus, also known as Dionysus, was expressly identified with the Egyptian Osiris,195 the well-known Egyptian Sun-[sovereign]. Bacchus was also called Ichthus, the Fish.196 So, yet another group, the worshipers of Bacchus, the Sun-[sovereign], alias Ies (IHS), were conciliated, were made welcome, with the foreign-to-the-Hebrew name of Iesous (IHSOUS) or Iesus. This most appalling revelation startled us, indeed. After being enlightened about the solar origin of the word IHS and its fuller form IHSOUS (Iesous), we are no longer surprised to find the ecclesiastical emblem, IHS, encircled by sun-rays, commonly displayed on church windows:

 No wonder that we read the testimony of the learned Christian advocate, M. Turretin, in describing the state of Christianity in the 4th century, saying “that it was not so much the (Roman) Empire that was brought over to the Faith, as the Faith that was brought over to the Empire; not the Pagans who were converted to Christianity, but Christianity that was converted to Paganism.”197 A further witness to this paganisation of the Messianic Faith is that of emperor Hadrian, who, in a letter to the Consul Servianus, wrote, “There are there (in Egypt) Christians who worship Serapis; and devoted to Serapis are those who call themselves ‘Bishops of Christ.'”198 Another testimony comes to us from the letter of Faustus, writing to Augustine, “You have substituted your love-feasts for the sacrifices of the Pagans; for their idols your martyrs, whom you serve with the very same honours. You appease the shades of the dead with wine and feasts; you celebrate the solemn festivals of the Gentiles, their calends, and their solstices; and as to their manners, those you have retained without any alteration. Nothing distinguishes you from the Pagans, except that you hold your assemblies apart from them.”199

Yahushúa, in His final message to us, the book of Revelation, has warned us of this in Rev. 17, Rev. 18, Rev. 19, and also in Rev. 13, Rev. 14, and Rev. 16 -Babylon, Mystery Babylon. The Great Harlot has made “the inhabitants of the earth drunk with the wine of her fornication,” out of the “golden cup” in her hand, “full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication,” Rev. 17:1-5. The is also described as “sitting on a scarlet beast, full of names of blasphemy,” verse 3. Tammuz, alias Bacchus, had a surname: Ies or IHS. He was also known as the fish (Ichthus), and had the Tau, the cross, as his sign. These three things have survived, and are still with us!

In Acts 4:12 we read, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” This verse clearly tell us that there is only one Name whereby we can be saved – there is none other. It cannot be Yahushúa as well as Jesus, Iesous, Iesus, or Ies (Bacchus). There is no resemblance between the names of Yahushúa and Jesus. The one is correct and the other one a substitute. The one contains our Father’s Name and the other one not. Yahushúa has said that He came in His Father’s name, John 5:43. In the newer translations of the Scriptures, we read in two places, John 17:11 and 12, that Yahushúa said that His Father’s Name was given to Him. If we believe the Scriptures, if we believe our Messiah, if we believe what Peter said in Acts 4:12, we cannot be satisfied with any substitute name. We must believe, accept, and be baptized into the only saving Name: Yahushúa. In the end-time, according to Joel 2:32, calling on the Name of YHWH will be necessary for salvation and deliverance. By believing on, calling on, and being baptized in the Name of Yahushúa, we do “call on the Name of YHWH”, through His Son, “Who had His Father’s Name given to Him, by His Father. “I have come in My Father’s Name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive,” John 5:43. The writer of Proverbs challenges us in Prov. 30:4, “What is His Name, and what is His Son’s Name, if thou canst tell?” KJV. a very interesting alternate rendering for Psalm 72:17 is given to us in the centre column of the Reference Kin James Version, speaking about he promised Messiah, “His Name shall be as a Son to continue His Father’s Name for ever.”

As I have stated, there is no resemblance between the Name Yahushúa and the name Jesus. Neither is there any resemblance between their meanings. Yahushúa means: “the Salvation of Yah or Yahu (pdf).” “Jesus” is derived from Iesus, derived from Iesous (IHSOUS) derived, most probably, from the Greek [sovereignness] of healing, Ieso or Iaso. her name was derived from iasis ,which means “healing”. Further, the short form, or original source of the name Iesous (IHSOUS) is Ies (IHS), the very surname of Bacchus, the Sun-[sovereign]. Therefore, the two names differ completely in their origin, and in their meaning. And more important: Yahushúa’s name contains the Name of His Father, which the substitute name does not. Further proof of the Father’s Name being in the Son’s Name is found in Eph. 3:14-15, “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father…from Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.” Surely, if His family received His Name, His only begotten Son will also have His Name.

Another proof is Rev. 14:1, but this should be read in the newer translations, because the King James Version and the Revised Authorized Version have it both wrong. Rev. 14:1-5, in the NASB reads, “And I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Name and the Name of His Father written on their foreheads…These are the ones who have not been defiled…These are the ones who follow the Lamb where ever He goes. These have been purchased…as first-fruits…And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless.” The translators of the King James version must have realized the meaning of this passage in Rev. 14:1, namely, the similarity between the Lamb’s Name and His Father’s Name. Therefore they took the liberty, even if wrongfully, to omit the words “His Name and”. The King James Version therefore only speaks about the Father’s Name, while the Greek Text reads, “having His Name and the Name of His Father written on their foreheads.” Do we wish to be part of this first fruit company? Then we are to make quite certain that we have the Father’s Name and the Lamb’s Name on (or in) our Foreheads. The similarity between their Names is obvious. Whether it will be just one Name, Yah, or whether it will be both YHWH and Yahushúa, is not clearly indicated, and is less important – as long as we have the essential part of the Name, Yah, which transmits its etymological concept of life, everlasting life. Verses 4-5 warn us against defilement, spiritual defilement — the lies that we have inherited, including the lies about the Names. “O YHWH,…the Gentile shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, ‘Surely our fathers have inherited lies…’ Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know…; and they shall know My Name is YHWH ,” Jer. 16:19-21, a prophecy for the end-time. “Therefore My people shall know My Name,” Isa. 52:6. “I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My Name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; and each one will say, ‘YHWH is my Mighty One,'” Zech. 13:9. “For then will I restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of YHWH , to serve Him with one accord,” Zeph. 3:9. “And YHWH shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be – ‘YHWH is one,’ and His Name one,” Zech. 14:9. he will no longer be called by all those hundreds of names, by which He is known today. His Name will be “one”. And His Son, in Whose Name the Father’s Name is contained, will subject Himself to His Father in that day, 1 Cor. 15:28.

The Name YHWH has been substituted in our translations of the Scriptures with the title “Lord” some 6823 times. The short form, Yah, has also been substituted 48 times with “Lord (pdf)”, and only in one place was it retained as: Yah, in Ps. 68:4 (Jah, in the KJV). Further, wherever we read “GOD” in capital letters, that too is a substitute for “YHWH”. This title, “lord”, is applied to all heathen deities, if the word “god” is not used for them. In most cases “lord” and “god” are used interchangeably for pagan idols. For instance, Hare Krishna is popularly known as “Lord”, and nowadays we hear much about “Lord Maitreya”. In 1 Cor. 8:5 Paul says, “There are many (mighty ones) and many (masters)”. So, who then, do we worship? Surely there is only One that we should worship, with His Son sitting on His right side. “What is His Name, and what is His Son’s Name, if you know?” – Prov. 30:4. Why have Their Names been hidden from us?

Let us investigate this most common substitute for the Name YHWH, namely, “Lord”. What is its etymology? Dictionaries tel us that it originated from the Old English hlaford, which in turn came from hlaf-weard = loaf-keeper. This may be true, but you do have to stretch your imagination to see a connection between “lord” and hlaf-weard. Nevertheless, even if we do accept it, I would like to propose that, in accordance with the spirit of syncretism, i.e. making your deity acceptable to others, we can readily see how the worshipers of three pagan deities with names similar to “lord”, were accommodated by means of compromise. These three pagan [sovereigns] were Larth, Loride and Lordo. The Church, which evolved after Constantine fused the Messianic Faith with Sun-worship, was enthusiastic to win as many followers as they could, even if it meant compromise or assimilation. Let us do some research on these three idols:

(a) LARTH: There was an Etruscan house [sovereign] whose name was Lar, which signified “Lord”, also known as Larth,169 who later on became very popular n Rome and became known as Lares (plural), because as idol statues they were usually in pairs. This [sovereign] was invoked together with Janus, Jupiter, Mars, Quirinus and Bellona.170 The Greek equivalent of this name was Heros,171 which was another name for Zeus, as we have seen previously in this article. A feminine form was known as Lara,172 who was the beloved of Mercury, the Sun-[sovereign]. Another name for Zeus was Larissaeus,173 which also was another name for Apollo. Zeus was also known as Larasios 174 or Lariseus,174 while Larasios was also a surname of Helios.174 Typical of the syncretism and polytheism of those days, we read of emperor Alexander Severus (222 – 235 C.E.) who “had images of Abraham, Christ and Alexander the Great among his household Lares.”175 These Lares are to be found in the East as well, seen in niches in Hindu houses.176 However, what is the analogy between Larth (Lar) and Lord? Firstly, all sources agree, that this Lar or Larth means: Lord. Secondly, it is well documented that “the” and “d” were virtually interchangeably used, varying from nation to nation. Thirdly, in Old English and Middle English it was common to find the “o” and “a” interchangeably used too. In the Middle English Dictionary, editor S.M. Kuhn, we read 177 that lord was earlier spelt lard; that lor became lord; that lor was spelt lar in Old English (meaning: the action or process of teaching or preaching); that Lore-fader was also spelt Larfaderr or Larefadir or larfadir (meaning:teacher); that lorspel was lar-spel in Old English (meaning: that which is taught in religion); and that lor-theu was previously also spelt lar-theow, lardewe, lardewen, lauerd, lordeau (meaning: teacher or spiritual or theological teacher). Thus we can easily see the ease of identifying Lard, Lord, Larth, Lor, Lar, Lortheu, Lartheow, Lardewe with one another. In fact, it is easier to trace the origin of “Lord” according to this well documented evidence, rather than the commonly held belief that it originated from hlaf-weard.

(b) LORIDE: Thor was the well-known Teutonic war-[sovereign]. he was also known as a Sun-[sovereign].178 His surname was Hlorridhi, 179 or Loride, 180 The latter also taken to be Thor’s son, who had a wife with the name “Gloria”.180 This Loride could easily have been contracted to the form “Lord”, or perhaps it could only have served to establish religious syncretism with Larth, and Lortheu, and Lard, and Lordeau, and Lord.

(c) LORDO: Lordo181, or Lordon, was another [sovereign] or daimon, the daimon of “lodosis“, the curvature of the spine or body, which also had a sensual meaning.181

If all this evidence is considered, once can resolve that, apart from the various names which contributed toward the assimilation or syncretism, the most likely origin of the word “Lord” seems to come from Larth (Lard) and Lor-theu (lardewe, lordeau, laured). Thus, although the word “Lord” is not so clearly related to, or originated from, frank Sun-worship, we have enough evidence to trace its roots back to idolatrous worship in the form of Loride, being a surname for Thor (the Sun), and also Lortheu or Lardewe or lordeau (connected with theos or deos or deva), as well as Larth or Lar which was somehow linked with Mercury (the Sun-[sovereign]) and Zeus, the Sky-[sovereign] who later on became the Sun-[sovereign].

As a confirmation of the conclusion to which we came, we afterwards discovered the following findings of the scholar of English names, Robert Ferguson, in his Surnames as a Science. On pp. 157 and 189 he emphatically states that “Lord” could not have had its origin from hlaford, which was said to come from hlaf-weard. Like us, he states that the origin of “Lord” is from lar lore, and Loride.

What then, should we use instead of “Lord”? The word “Master” is an exact rendering of the Hebrew Adonai and the Greek Kurios. For our Saviour or His Father we can use “Sovereign”. The latter word is used in many places in teh Old Testament of the New International Version. If we love the Name of YHWH, as is expected from us (Ps. 69:32, Ps. 119:132, Isa. 56:6), can we be content with this word “Lord” which man has dared to substitute His Name with? Can we say with David in Ps. 5:11, “But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You…Let those also who love Your Name, be joyful in You.” The Mighty One’s end-time prophecy of Isa. 56:6-7 could mean a blessing, or an exclusion to us, “Also the sons of the foreigner, who joined themselves to YHWH, to serve Him, and to love the name of YHWH to be His servants -everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and holds fast My Covenant – even them I will bring to My Separated Mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer.” Again, He prophecies about this time in Hosea 2:16-17, “And it shall be, in the day,” says YHWH, ‘That you will…no longer call Me: My Baal; for I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more.'” The prophecy of Zeph. 3:9 must be fulfilled, “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of YHWH, to serve Him with one accord.”

This is the word used in most English versions as a rendering of the New Testament’s Greek word ekklesia. Ekklesia really means “a calling out”, a meeting or a gathering. Ekklesia is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew qahal, which means an assembly or a congregation. Neither ekklesia nor qahal means a building. Tyndale, in his translation, uniformly translated ekklesia as “congregation” and only used the word “churches” to translate Acts 19:37 for heathen temples! Whence the word “church”, then? Ecclesiastical sources give the origin as kuriakon or kyriakon in Greek. However, to accept this, one has to stretch your imagination in an attempt to see any resemblance. Also, because kuriakon means a building (the house of Kurios=Lord), and not a gathering or meeting of people, as the words ekklesia and qahal imply, therefore this explanation can only be regarded as distorted, even if it is true. Our common dictionaries, however, are honest in revealing to us the true origin. They all trace the word back to its Old English or Anglo-Saxon root, namelyirce. And the origin of circe? Any encyclopaedia, or dictionary of mythology, will reveal who Circe was. She was the (sovereigness)-daughter of Helios, the Sun-[sovereign]! Again, another form of Sun-worship, this time the daughter of the Sun-[sovereign], had become mixed with the Messianic Faith.

circe church daughter of Sun-sovereign HeliousCirce, daughter of the well known Sun-[sovereign] Helios. This”Circe” is the identical Old English word for “Church”—see any dictionary.

Some interesting facts emerge from the study of the word circe. The word is related to “circus”, “circle”, “circuit”, “Circean”, “circulate”, and the various words starting with “circum-“. The Latin pronunciation could have been “sirke” or “sirse”. The Old English word circe may have been pronounced similarly to “kirke”, or even “sirse “.

However, Circe was in fact originally a Greek [sovereignness] where her name was written as: Kirke, and pronounced as such—just as in numerous similar cases of words of Greek origin, e.g. cyst and kustis, cycle and kuklos, cylinder and kulindros. The word “church” is known in Scotland as kirk, and in German as Kirche and in Netherlands as kerk. These words show their direct derivation from the Greek Kirke even better than the English “church”. However, even the Old English circe for “church”, reveals its origin.

Let us rather use the Scriptural “Assembly” or “Congregation“, and renounce the word that is derived from Circe, the daughter of the Sun-[sovereign]!

The Hebrew of the Old Testament reveals to us that the Scriptural Hebrew word (which means: so be it, or verily or surely) is “Amein” and not “Amen”. Likewise, the Greek equivalent in the Greek New Testament is also pronounced: “Amein”. Anyone can check on this in Stong’s Concordance, No. 543 in its Hebrew Lexicon, and No. 281 in its Greek Lexicon, or in Aaron Pick’s Dictionary of Old Testament Words for English Readers. Why then, has this Scriptural word “Amein” been rendered as “Amen” in our versions? Again we can see how the pagans have been made welcome, been conciliated, by adopting the name of pagan (sovereign) into the Church.

The Egyptians, including the Alexandrians, had been worshiping, or been acquainted with, the head of the Egyptian pantheon, Amen-Ra, the great Sun-(sovereign), for more than 1 000 years, B.C.E. Before this (sovereign) became known as Amen-ra, he was only known as Amen among the Thebians. This substitution of “Amen” for “Amein” was greatly facilitated by the fact that this Egyptian (sovereign’s) name was pelt in Egyptian hieroglyphic language with only three letters: AMN, just as we find a similar poverty of vowels in the Scriptural Hebrew, which prior to its vowel-pointing by the Massoretes, also only spelt its AMEIN as : AMN. However, with the vowel-pointing by the Massoretes the Scriptural word has been preserved for us as AMEIN. On the other hand, the Egyptian (sovereign) AMN is rendered by various sources as AMEN, or AMUN, or as AMON. However, the most reliable Egyptologists and archaelogsits, such as Sir E.A. Wallis Budge,112 Dr. A.B. Cook,113 Prof. A Wiedemann, 114 Sir W.M.F. Petrie,115 and A.W. Shorter,116 as well as some authoritative dictionaries,117 all render the name of this Egyptian (sovereign) as AMEN. This AMEN was originally the Theban “hidden god who is in heaven”112 “the hidden one, probably meaning hidden sun”.118 Funk and Wagnalls, Standard College Dictionary, describes it, “AMEN: In Egyptian mythology, the god of life and procreation…later identified with the Sun-[sovereign] as the supreme [sovereign], and called ‘Amen-Ra‘.” James Bonwick, Egyptian Belief and Modern Thought, repeatedly and frankly calls the Sun-(sovereign) of Egypt by its correct name: AMEN. He states on pp. 123-125, “AMEN…is in a sense, the chief deity of Egypt – supreme divinity. Whatever else he be, he must be accepted as the sun…the hidden god, the solar aspect is clear…there is the disk of the sun…the sun Amen…His identification with Baal…establishes him as a solar deity…” Smith’s Bible Dictionary expresses AMEN as, “an Egyptian divinity…He was worshiped…as Amen-Ra, or ‘Amen the Sun‘.” Herodotos recorded for us how the Greeks identified their Zeus with Amen-Ra.113

Yahushúa calls Himself “the Amein” in Rev. 3:14. Substituting a title or name of Yahushúa with the name o of the great hidden Sky-(sovereign) or the great Sun-(sovereign) of the Egyptians, Amen, is inconceivable! The difference is subtle, but it is there. By ending our prayers “Amen” instead of “Amein”, one could very well ask: Have we been misled to invoke the name of the Egyptian Sun-(sovereign) at the end of our prayers?

 The origin of the word “obelisk“: (The following definition is from The Assembly of IaHUShUA’ MaShIaChaH)

The well-known pointed obelisks or sun-pillars of Egypt are found in the Scriptures in the Hebrew words matzebah and hammanim. The former word is best translated as “pillars” or as “sun-pillars”, and the latter as “sun-images”. In Jer. 43:13 this matzebah (sun-pillars) are identified as those obelisks found in Beth-shemesh (in Greek: Heliopolis) in the land of Egypt. Unfortunately, the King James Version rendered this word matzebah in most places as “images,” instead of “obelisks” or “pillars”, as the other English versions correctly do. In Exod. 23:24 Israel was commanded to break down these pillars of the heathen nations. he repeated this in Exod. 34:13, deut. 7:5 and Deut. 12:3. And in many other places n Scripture these pillars or sun-pillars are emphatically described as an “abomination” by our Mighty One. Israel was not only commanded to break down these pagan pillars or sun-pillars, they were strictly commanded not to erect them, Deut. 16:22 and Lev. 26:1. in Deut. 16:22 our Mighty One says that He “hates” them.

Diodorus spoke of an obelisk 130 feet high which was erected by Queen Semiramis in Babylon.207 In Babylon the phallic symbolism seems to have been the more important aspect. However, in Egypt more emphasis was put on its sun-symbolism seems to have been the more important aspect. However, in Egypt more emphasis was put on its sun-symbolism, pointing upwards to the sun, and also described as a sun-ray. These obelisks were commonly erected at the entrance to the temples of Isis or other temples of the numerous Sun-(sovereigns) of Egypt, especially in the city of Heliopolis (Beth-shemesh), for its sun-symbolism as well as for its phallic meaning. Ezekiel chapter 8 clearly describes to us the mixture of Israel’s’ True Worship with that of Sun-worship in the form of Tammuz-worship (Tammuz being the young Sun-[sovereign]) in verse 14, as well as the 25 elders worshiping the Sun towards the East, verse 16. In verses 3 and 5 we read of “the image of jealousy” which was erected in the entrance to the Temple. Scofield regards this “image of jealousy” to be phallic.208 The Lamsa Bible as well as the New English Bible have rendered this as “image of lust”. Travellers to Rome all know about the famous Obelisk at the entrance of St. Peter’s in Rome. It is not a mere copy of an Egyptian obelisk, it is one of the very same obelisks that stood in Egypt in Heliopolis in ancient times! When the mystery religion came to pagan Rome, Egyptian obelisks, especially from helipolis, were hauled, at great expense, and erected by the Roman emperors. Caligula, in 37-41 B.C.E., had this very same obelisk brought from Heliopolis, Egypt, to his circus on the Vatican Hill, where now stands St. Peter’s is 83 feet high (132 feet with its foundation) and weighs 320 tons. Pope Sixtus V ordered it to be moved a little in 1586, in order to centre it in front of St. Peter’s. the sun-pillar from Heliopolis, which the Mighty One has ordered to be destroyed, was not destroyed. Rather, it was erected right in the entrance to St. Peter’s – a memorial to the fusion of Sun-worship with the Messianic Faith.

The majority of church buildings that have been built over the centuries have a tower. Each generation of church builders has copied the former generation, probably never questioning the origin of the idea. The Scriptural Temple of YHWH does not have a pointed tower or pointed pillar in its design. Similar to the sun-pillar or obelisks, these pointed towers of churches can be traced back to Babylon. Many of the towers that were built in the Babylonian empire were not watchtowers, but were religious towers. In those times, a stranger entering a Babylonian city would have no difficulty locating its temple, we are told, for high above the flat roofed houses, its tower could be seen.210 We are also told by The Catholic Encyclopedia, “It is a striking fact that most Babylonian cities possessed a…temple-tower.”211 Whether it be a tower, a steeple or a spire, they are all un-Scriptural. Several writers think, and not without some justification, the towers, steeples and spires with the ancient obelisk. “There is evidence,” says one, “to show that the spires of our churches owe their existence to the uprights or obelisks outside the temples of former ages.”212 Another says, “There are still in existence today remarkable specimens of original phallic symbols…steeples on churches…and obelisks.”213

However, this will continue only till the time of the end-time, for we read, “the Asherim and the sun-images shall rise no more,” Isa. 27:9 ASV. Indeed The Mighty One Himself will destroy them in the end-time, “and I will cut off your carced images and your pillars out of the middle of you, and you shall no more worship the work of your hand.” (Micah 5:13 ASV).

Origin of the Christian “fish” symbol: (The following definition is from The Assembly of IaHUShUA’ MaShIaChaH)

There was an upheaval against iconalotry (image worship) in the 8th – 9th centuries, and again by the Puritans in the 16th – 17th centuries. This sin has crept in again and those who love Yahushúa and His Father are again crying out against this sin, which has become less obvious due to the explanations offered in an attempt to justify this practice. Let us investigate the symbol of the fish so commonly displayed on the back of cars.

This symbol is used because Christians are told that…we are called to be “fishers of men”. However, another popular explanation is offered: It represents our Messiah, because of Augustine’s attempt to justify the adoption of another element of pagan worship the Church’s syncretism, “Christianising” pagan practices, emblems and even pagan deities. Paganism was mixed with the Messianic Faith. Rev. Hislop states that our Messiah “began to be popularly called ICHTHYS for ICHTHUSI, that is ‘the Fish’, manifestly to identify Him with Dagon.”122 Dagon was the Fish-[sovereign]. Augustine, the celebrated Church Father, rather childishly gave his reason for doing this, “If you combine the initial letters of the five Greek words, which are Iesous Chreistos Theou Uios Soter, Jesus Christ the Son of god the Saviour, they make the word ichthus, meaning fish, and the mystic meaning of this noun is Christ, because he had power to exist alive, that is, without sin, in the bottomless pit of our mortal life, as in the depths of the sea.”123 But Tertullian was even more frank in his blasphemous identification of our Messiah with a fish, by calling Him, “our Fish” . Tertullian wrote, “But we, little fishes, are born in water according to our Fish (Ichthus), Jesus Christ.”124 Why were these Church Fathers so keen to identify Yahushúa with a fish? In The Two Babylons, pp. 252 and 270, we read, “that Ichthus, or the Fish, was one of the names of Bacchus.” Bacchus was just on the name for Tammuz,125 the Sun-[sovereign]. the adoration or veneration of the fish emblem is clearly and emphatically forbidden in Deut. 4:15-19; and even more so once the hidden truth of the 3rd and 4th century’ idolatrous syncretism with the Fish-deity (identifying our Messiah with the Fish-[sovereign], has been revealed to us. 

Furthermore, the fish, as a pair of fishes, is part of the Chaldean (Babylonian) zodiac, as one of the signs of astral worship with the Sun at the centre of the zodiac. It therefore formed part of, and was a sign of, Sun-worship.126 Also, Hippolyt of Rome tells us that the Brahmans (sect of Indians, from whom some pagan idolatrous worship originated) regarded the sun to be as a fish.127 Further, the son of the Syrian [sovereignness] Atargatis was known as Ichthus too.128 Another Fish-[sovereign] was the Babylonian Ea, who became known amongst the Greeks as Oannes, similar to the Fish-[sovereign] of the Philistines, Dagon, half man and half fish.129 We also read the following findings of scholars, “The Fish is also associated with the sunthe god of the sunas a fish“, 130 also being an Egyptian phallic emblem,131 as well as a sign of fecundity, or the female generative organ, or of female [sovereignness].131

The Harlot Woman, Mystery Babylon of Rev. 17, has made the inhabitants of the earth drunk with the wine of her fornication, Rev 17:2, giving the inhabitants of the earth to drink out of the golden cup in her hand “full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.” Rev. 17:4. (In verse 5 we read that she is the Mother of Harlots.) This means spiritual fornication with idolatrous practices. Do read our Mighty One’s clear warning on “the likeness of any fish” in Deut. 4:18.

Origin and definition of the word ‘glory’ (the following definition of ‘glory’ can be found HERE at the iahushua.com web site)

No fewer than 25 Hebrew words are rendered by doxa in the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament. Of these 25 words, 7 are more common, the most important being kabad. This Greek word doxa of the Greek translation of the Old Testament, and the doxa of the New Testament, are usually rendered “glory” in the English versions, a translation of the Latin gloria. If we first look at the Hebrew Old Testament, we find that kabad has usually been rendered “honour” when applied to man, but rendered “glory” when applied to our Heavenly Father. Why were they so keen to apply the word “glory” to our Mighty One? What is the meaning of the word “glory”?

Funk & Wagnalls, New Standard Dictionary of the English Language, under “glory”, gives the religious symbolic meaning, “In religious symbolism, the complete representation of an emanation of light from the person of a sanctified being consisting of the aureole and the nimbus;” and further on, “The quality of being radiant or shining; brilliancy brightness; luster; as the glory of the sun;” and further on, “A sunburst; any ring of light; a halo.” John Ogilvie

The Comprehensive English Dictionary, under “glory”, explains it as, “splendour, as of the sun.” Similar statements are made by The Oxford English Dictionary and Webster’s New International Dictionary. The latter states, “glory is the general term for the aureola and the nimbus”—aureola being the halo or ring round the sun, and nimbus being the sun-disc.

This meaning, as well as the word itself, would be acceptable if the commonly used Hebrew words of the Old Testament, and the Greek word doxa, have had the same meaning of sun-radiance or circles of light. However, we do not find any trace of sun-radiance or emanation of light in any of these Hebrew words, nor in the Greek doxa. Once more we are rudely awakened to the fact of the adoption of Sun-worship into the Church, the fusion of Sun-worship and the Messianic Faith. In the dictionaries, encyclopaedias and ecclesiastical books, we find many illustrations of our Saviour, the Virgin, and the saints, encircled with radiant circles or emanations of light around them.

What are the meanings then of the Scriptural Hebrew words? Kabad means honour, dignity or esteem in its figurative sense, as well as weight, in its literal sense. Pa’ar means repute. Halal means praiseworthiness or praise. Adar and hadar means to make great. Tipharah means repute. Shavak means to esteem. The Greek word doxa simply means opinion, estimation, esteem, repute or dignity, coming from the verb dokeo, which means “to seem”.

Thus, the ecclesiastical symbolic meaning of the word “glory”, being that of radiance or emanation of light as from the sun, is totally un-Scriptural. It is strong evidence of the Church’s solarisation of our Messiah and of His Father. The Church identified Elohim with the Sun (sovereign), which was the prevailing (sovereign) of the Roman emperors, the Roman capital and its empire. However, not only does the concept of “glory” stem from Sun-worship, but we also find proof of “glory” (gloria) as having been a Roman (sovereigness), discovered in the form of an icon personified by a woman, the upper part of her body almost naked, holding a circle on which are the zodiac signs.

Pauly-Wissowa also defines Gloria as a personification of fame, the word being found very frequently on the coins of Constantine and his successors. Besides the frequent occurrence of the word Gloria on the coins, the image of this (sovereigness) is found on two coins, one of Constantius II and one of Constantine II.

We should therefore eliminate the word “glory” from our religious vocabulary for three reasons:
1) We have been commanded in Exod. 23:13 to “make no mention of the names of other mighty ones, nor let it be heard from your mouth”—especially in our worship, applying these names to the One we love, and His Son.
2) The concept of the word “glory” in religious symbolism, as we read in Funk & Wagnalls Dictionary, is that of the emanation or radiance of light, as of the sun. This is proof of the solarisation of our beloved Saviour, identifying Him, as well as His Father, with the Sun-(sovereign).
3) The Hebrew words, as well as Greek word doxa, do not carry the meaning of sun-radiance or sunlight at all. Therefore the word “glory” is an incorrect rendering of those words.
What then should we use instead of the word “glory”? Simply what the Hebrew words and the Greek word mean: “esteem”, or “high esteem” or “repute”. These words carry the meaning of the Scriptural words and do not stem from the names of deities as far as we know, and should be used wherever our versions have “glory”.

Now that we have explored (from The Assembly of IaHUShUA’ MaShIaChaH) the words above that Christianity has adopted, let’s turn to some names that Elohim has given to people that have since been changed through Hellenization (Greek opposed to Hebrew roots) by Christianity. The interesting fact to note about what Elohim has done to proclaim His Name and His esteem is that nearly all of the Prophets carry a part of YAHUAH’s Name in their names. And also, whenever His Name is found in one of their names, it gives a “witness” and “testifies” to and about Who YAHUAH is! 

Acts 10:43- “To Him all the Prophets witness that, through His Name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.”

Now, let’s see about the words AHLLELUYAH vs (sn- Hallelujah)

Here it is spelled in Ibrim (sn-Hebrew):“hywllh”;  So, which word is correct? Did you know that in 2,400 Languages this word is pronounced virtually the same!YAHUAH left us evidence” of what His Name is. But, Christianity has taught us that Ahlleluyah (they spell “Hallelujah) means “Praise the LORD,” but this is a lie of Satan. The first part of the word “Ahllelu” means “Praise Be Unto,” with the second part clearly showing the Father’s Name of “Yah.” So,  it should be “Praise Be Unto Yah!”

Yahudah (Jude): To Those Who Are Called, Set-Apart by Elohim the Father and Preserved in Yahusha Messiah

Yahudah (Jude)

1. Yahudah, as servant of Yahusha Anointed One Messiah and brother of Ya’aqob, to those who are called, set-apart by Elohim the Father and preserved in Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

2. Compassion and peace and love be increased to you.

3. Beloved ones, making all haste to write to you concerning our common deliverance, I felt the necessity to write to you urging you to earnestly contend for the belief which was once for all delivered to the Set-apart Ones.

4. For certain men have slipped in, whose judgment was written about long ago, wicked ones perverting the favour of our Elohim for indecency and denying the only Master Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH and our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

5. But I intend to remind you, though you once knew this, that Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH , having saved a people out of the land of Mitsrayim, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.

6. And the messengers who did not keep their own principality, but left their own dwelling, He has kept in everlasting shackles under darkness for the judgment of the great day.

7. Even as Sedom and Amorah and the cities around them in a similar way to these, having given themselves over to whoring and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, undergoing judicial punishment of everlasting fire.

8. In the same way, indeed, these dreamers defile the flesh and reject authority and speak evil of esteemed ones.

9. But Mika’el the chief messenger, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Mosheh, presumed not to bring against him a blasphemous accusation, but said, ” Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH rebuke you!”

10. But these blaspheme that which they do no know. And that which they know naturally, like unreasoning beasts, in these they corrupt themselves.

11. Woe to them! Because they have gone in the way of Qayin and gave themselves to the delusion of Bil’am for a reward and perished in the rebellion of Qorah.

12. These are rocky reefs in our love feasts, feasting with you, feeding themselves without fear, waterless clouds borne about by the winds, late autumn tress without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots,

13. wild waves of the sea foaming up their own shame, straying stars for whom blackness of darkness is kept forever.

14. And Hanok, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied of these, saying, “See, Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH comes with His myriads of Set-Apart Ones,

15. to execute judgment on all, to punish all who are wicked among them concerning all their wicked works which they have committed in a wicked way and concerning all the harsh words which wicked sinners have spoken against Him.”

16.These are grumblers, complainers, who walk according to their own lusts and their mouth speaks proudly, admiring faces of others for the sake of gain.

17. But you, beloved ones, remember the words spoken before by the emissaries of our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah,

18. because they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own wicked lusts.

19. These are the ones who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.

20. But you, beloved ones, building yourselves up on your most set-apart belief, praying in the Set-Apart Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah unto everlasting life.

22. And show compassion toward some who are doubting,

23. but others save with fear, snatching them out of the fire, hating even the garment of defiled by the flesh.

24. And to Him Who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of His esteem with exceeding joy,

25. to the only wise Elohim, our Saviour, be esteem and greatness and might and authority, both now and forever. Amen.

Issa: Holder, DOJ Had ‘Rahm Emanuel Moment’ — “Very Clearly They Made A Crisis To Take Away Or Limit People’s Second Amendment Rights,” As ANOTHER Obama Associate Is Sentenced To Prison

This is a continuing series and is Part 13 Of: Now Get Ready For Some Shock And Awe — YAHUAH-Style, Since Homosexual Fascism is Now Being Promoted in the U.S. Military and U.S. Government School Systems

BREAKING NEWS UPDATES: Where Have All The Congressmen Gone? Communists Occupiers Threatening Interstate Commerce And Wally Herger And Others Want Their Pensions?    

Why is the Congress not holding investigatory hearings into the BOLD, BLATANT ATTEMPTS TO SABOTAGE INTERSTATE COMMERCE, seeing that this IS one of the reasons Congress actually DOES make a difference and can help the states fend off ILLEGAL, COORDINATED, MALICIOUS ATTEMPTS TO DESTROY COMMERCE and bring this country to FULL COMMUNISM — OCCUPIER-STYLE!!!

Here is a web site that BOLDLY proclaims to OCCUPY PORTS 12.12.11 and then they say that “You Can’t Evict An Idea Whose Time Has Come.”     Actually, by LAWLESSLY taking and preventing others from excersizing their YAHUAH-given Constitutional rights, these Communist  Occupiers are the REASON why there are RICO laws in the first place: to prevent COMMUNISTS from trampling over the rights of others.

I call upon all who enjoy Law and Order in the United States of America to please call or e-mail, text, etc. your Congressional Representative and DEMAND they do their jobs and fulfill their Oath of Office by holding hearings to determine how to bring Law and Order back to the America. If they can Occupy banks, bridges, front lawns, ports, Public Parks, streets and buildings, then Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Assembly and Freedom of Religion will become a thing of the past and a better name for us would be the “Fascist States of America,” in my opinion!!!

Next Communist Showdown Is At The Ports    Inspired by the INACTION of Congress of the Nov. 2 shutdown of the Port of Oakland by Communists Occupy Oakland protesters, Occupy movements across the country are now seeking to disrupt ports and shipping activities. Maybe the timid GOP thinks that these Communists that Obama, Nasty Pelosi and other rabid Communists of the Democratic Party will give them their pensions and other perks if they don’t bother the. I have warned America that this entire country will be ripped out from underneath them, since they are letting a wicked (they STILL actually are self-deluded and think Mr. BHO is a “nice” man!!!) man, President Barack Hussein Obama infect this country with Homosexual Fascist in the military and in our school systems. You are now watching in slow motion that will pick up at a fast pace. Frogs in warm water wait until it is too late to jump to safety. Your love of Hedonism is STRONGER than your love for Truth and Justice and your Creator. As President Obama’s mentor and as co-conspirator in their grooming of Communist Obama, Jeramiah Wright and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan put it: America’s chickens are come home to roost.

Communist Occupiers Want 1,000,000 Tents To Occupy Congress, January 2012    Yesterday, Communist Occupy DC targeted for protests  congressional Democrats at a campaign fundraiser. Now, Communist Occupiers say they plan to Occupy Congress on Jan. 17 in what may be the “largest Occupy protest ever!

It’s being timed with the start of the 2012 legislative session for Congress, with Communist protesters saying they hope there will be up 1 million tents in front of the Capitol. “We’re taking the movement straight to their doorstep,” says the protest’s Facebook page.

And open your ears, you complacent Americans, since a Puerto Rican student wrote on Twitter that she hoped the Communist Occupiers would Occupy the Federal Reserve, Treasury, and Supreme Court, too.

Capitalist America: To Be Or Not To Be Free    “According to Barack Obama, the Democrat party and Occupy Wall Street, society’s ills are primarily the fault of the entrepreneurial class. The rich and greedy. Those evil corporations who sap the life blood out of working class men and women. For maximum profit.  Servants to the god of mammon, capitalists defraud their workers of time and energy compensating them only as much as required to keep their work force at work and generating fat profits for the fat cats. The poor get poorer and the rich get richer. Business owners obscenely profiting off of the noble sweat of their enslaved and powerless labor force. The exploitation of the common man.

This is the worldview of the liberal/progressive.  The socialist, Marxist and anti-capitalist.  And the President of the United States.

As the world’s foremost anti-capitalist, Barack Obama promises to punish ‘the rich.’ Though the top 1% of Americans pay 37% of America’s tax revenue, Obama claims they should pay more. They should ‘pay their fair share.’ As defined by Obama.” —

U.S. Banks Being Taken Over Using Chavez-Style ManipulationPart-2    “With $12 billion dollars in losses with the closing of Indy Mac ( now One West Bank) is it any wonder the FDIC fund is broke?  How are  Soros,  Paulson and Dell allowed to make a billion and a half dollars from the takeover of Indy Mac Bank in 2010 alone, while ignoring the losses? This is a massive transfer of wealth being manipulated by the Obama-Bernanke-Geitner-Soros consortium, where banks end up being owned by assorted leftists and crony-capitalists of the Obama regime,  eerily similar to what Mr. Hugo Chavez is doing in forming his Communist collective in Venezuela. This widespread power grab in taking over banks and putting them in the hands of  the likes of billionaire currency manipulators and finance fraudsters like George Soros has very deep ramifications for the public. As of right now, people who have money in FDIC insured banks have no guarantee that the money is actually in that bank, as witnessed in the Reuters article above: ‘With a rise in the number of troubled banks, the FDIC’s Deposit Insurance Fund used to repay insured deposits at failed banks has been drained.'” —

Eric Holder Claims He Ignored FIVE Fast And Furious Briefings?    Any hope of an “incompetence” defense was dashed whenRep. Issa and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) revealed that Holder was sent FIVE memo about Fast and Furious, issued briefings four weeks in a row.  As Big Government reports:

The Attorney General told Issa during a House Judiciary Committee in May 2011 that he had just learned of Fast and Furious a few weeks before. Yet, on January 31, in a previously scheduled meeting, Grassley personally handed him two letters about Fast and Furious. Grassley and Issa said they find it very troubling that Holder actually knew of Operation Fast and Furious much earlier, and in greater detail than he ever let on.

The memos specifically said that the straw buyers were “responsible for the purchase of 1500 firearms that were then supplied to Mexican drug trafficking cartels.”

“With the fairly detailed information that the Attorney General read, it seems the logical question for the Attorney General after reading in the memo would be “why haven’t we stopped them?” Grassley said. “And if he didn’t ask the questions, why didn’t he or somebody in his office?”

“Attorney General Holder has failed to give Congress and the American people an honest account of what he and other senior Justice Department officials knew about gunwalking and Operation Fast and Furious. The lack of candor and honesty from our nation’s chief law enforcement officials in this matter is deeply disturbing,” Issa said.

Congress Adds Money Laundering To Holder Crimes    “Yesterday, in a front page story, the New York Times reported that ‘in operations supervised by the Justice Department and orchestrated to get around sovereignty restrictions,’ American narcotics agents have ‘laundered or smuggled millions of dollars in drug proceeds as part of Washington’s expanding role in Mexico’s fight against drug cartels,’ Issa asked Erick Holder.

Obama Department Of Justice Personnel Ought To Be Impeached For Crimes Against Humanity, Starting With Eric Holder    “My committee was systematically lied to by your representatives,” Issa said.

“If we don’t get to the bottom of this, and that requires your assistance on that, there is only one alternative that Congress has – and it’s called impeachment,” Rep. Sensenbrenner (R-WI) said. “I’ve done more impeachments than anybody in the country.”

Eric Holder Impeachment Is A Good First Start    “ATF officials didn’t intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons,” says CBS, “but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called ‘Demand Letter 3’. That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or ‘long guns.’ Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information.”

 “There is really no responsibility within the Justice Department,”  Sensenbrenner said.

Attorney General Eric Holder responded to the committee by comparing the hearings on Fast and Furious to the hearings conducted by Senator Joe McCarthy in the 1950s on communists in government.  

No responsibility implies neutrality on responsibility, but negative responsibility can only go by one word: crime.

Is The RNC Relevant?    “The RNC want Republicans to give occupant a fair shake? Let’s give him what he deserves. Let’s call him what he is…a liar. Calling a liar a liar based on verifiably factual information does not reveal an inability to debate issues on merit. Just the contrary.

“Here’s the fact based truth: ‘progressives’ lie, cheat, & steal any and every election they can. Like every other Chicago based thug politician, the ‘progressive’ occupying the Oval Office is a forked tongued, two faced, backstabbing, hypocritical, pathological liar who will throw his own allies to the wolves at the drop of a hat in order to save his own political hide.

“If the RNC disaproves of speaking that truth to that power, then perhaps it’s time for Conservative Americans to render the RNC irrelevant.” —

Russian Elections: Vladimir Putin Accuses Hillary Clinton Of Inciting Moscow Protests    Putin’s government crackdown on opposition protesters has seen more than 1,000 people arrested in three days of protests in the Russian capital over what they and others have charged are allegations of electoral fraud.

Putin claimed the protesters had ‘started active work’ withthe support of the U.S. state department‘. ‘We are the largest nuclear power,’ he said.

“And our partners have certain concerns and shake us so that we don’t forget who is the master of this planet, so that we remain obedient and feel that they have leverage to influence us within our own country.” He warned repercussions to those who “dance to the tune of a foreign state.”

Around 50,000 have pledged to attend a protest in the shadow of the Kremlin tomorrow to call for a re-run of the poll.

“We need to think about strengthening the law and holding more responsible those who carry out the task of a foreign government to influence our internal political process,” he said.

Russia Wants More Guarantees Of Missile Defense Shield, Suggests Difficulties With Other “Projects”    “We want to have clear guarantees that the missile defense capabilities will not be targeted against our strategic capability,” Lavrov told a news conference.

“We stand ready to dialogue provided legitimate interests of all parties are taken into account,” Lavrov said. “We still have some time, but time is running out every day.”

We can’t be told no on the missile shield project and then be required to say yes to other projects,” he told reporters. “If this shield is not a shield, if it is something offensive … this would be negative for us.”

Obama’s Secretary Of State Clinton Kept Dutch’s Foreign Ministers Waiting 6 Min. In Hallway While On She Was On The Phone     Rosenthal stood and waited when, finally, the door opened, Clinton emerged and apologized explaining to Rosenthal that she had been on the phone with a senator “on an issue.”

Who Celebrates Hanukkah Early? Well, President Obama,That’s Who    Although Hanukkah actually begins at sunset on Dec. 20., President Barack Hussein Obama celebrated it early and joked that everyone needs to be “careful that your kids don’t start thinking Hanukkah lasts 20 nights instead of eight.”

The article says that the Hanukkah story is about a small band of Jews rededicating a Jerusalem temple discovered that instead of a one-day supply of oil to kindle a flame, it lasted for eight days.

Iran Shows Alleged Downed U.S. Drone (Video)    “They wanted to spy on Iran, but it has turned against them,” said a news person. “Iran’s wisdom is keeping the Americans awake at night.”

“Iran understands that they have a choice,” Obama said. “They can break that isolation by acting responsibly and forswearing the development of nuclear weapons . . . or they can continue to operate in a fashion that isolates them from the entire world.” And if Iran is pursuing nuclear arms, “that is contrary to the national security interests of the United States,” Obama said. “And we are going to work with the world community to prevent that.” Talk is cheap and positive results are rare for the Obama administration, save some excellent drone strikes against very important al-Qaeda targets.

Obama Says He Is Considering “All Options” With “No Options Off The Table” Against Iranian Iranian Nuclear Intransigence     “No options off the table means I’m considering all options,” President Obama said.

“Israeli people are divided among themselves. Just as there are fears of an attack, there are also no less heartfelt fears of not taking a preemptive strike at the proper time,” columnist Israel Harel wrote in the Haaretz newspaper.

Obama’s DNC All About Inclusion Of Occupy Voices -Except At Their Convention (Hypocrisy, Democrat Style🙂     John Heilemann’s cover story “2012=1968?” tells the story about a worried DNC concerned whether Occupiers will do to Charlotte’s Democratic National Convention in 2012 what demonstrators did to the Chicago DNC in 1968. The North Carolina city is sometimes called the “Wall Street of the South.”

They are busy working to pass an ordinance that would prohibit downtown spaces with tents making them a “public nuisance.”

“Unlike many cities that have well-developed regulations governing protest activity, our local regulations contain gaps that need to be filled,” Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx said. But a memo notes, “The recent issues related to camping on city property have further amplified the need to review whether the city wants to regulate this activity during the DNC.”

Once those ordinances go into effect, those overnight stays will end.”A city councilman said.

Everybody I talked to said the DNC is ground zero for everything,” the article says one organizer explains. “Everybody wants to be involved. We’re estimating several thousands of people coming especially from the Occupy community.” .”The DNC seems to be “a powder keg that “has got a big target on it

The “Bastards” Are: “The New York Times, Sen Carl Levin And Their 40 Democratic Allies In The House Of Representatives”    “So let me be absolutely clear about who the bastards are: The New York Times, Senator Carl Levin and their 40 Democratic allies in the House of Representatives. The disgrace in question: The Times’s April 2008 “exposé” alleging conflicts of interest and wrongdoing by the retired military analysts often featured on television newscasts before and during the Iraq War.”

“Scarborough eventually uncovered and reported the shocking truth: Senator Levin directly intervened in the investigation in order to influence the wording of the final IG report. This was the political equivalent of jury-tampering but, for a while, it seemed like Senator Levin’s misconduct would go un-noticed. But then, Congressman Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, announced his intention to examine Senator Levin’s meddling.” —

Newt Gingrich’s Lesbian Sister Works For Radical ‘Human Rights Campaign’ And Will Work “Really, Really Hard” For Obama      The rabidly pro-homosexual Obama and the rabidly pro-homosexual Candace Gingrich beating up on Newt Gingrich for defending the definition of marriage to include only those of the opposite sex may be too tempting a photo-op for Obama in the future.

I believe that marriage is between a man and woman,” he explained to a crowd in Iowa in September. “It has been for all of recorded history.”

Yes, and why would I want to encourage people to willingly and perversely become homosexuals and lesbians, when in FACT they can CHOOSE to NOT to commit homosexual acts, just like heterosexuals can CHOOSE to NOT to commit heterosexual acts – or cannot they contain themselves and are uncontrolled and act without regard to any negative consequences? What about the diseases and early death at age around 42 years old for Homosexuals and Lesbians who engage in homosexual acts (some people may be tempted with various temptations such as to continue to dwell, think on homosexuality, but do NOT commit acts of homosexuality or other acts of sin)?

No Longer “Just The Flavor Of The Month,” Gingrich Has Commanding Lead In Three Of Four First Primary States   “Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is no longer just the flavor of the month since his boomlet has now stretched from November into December and voting begins in Iowa in less than four weeks,” said Peter Brown of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Gingrich’s surge in the GOP race is accompanied by a better showing among independent voters in a general election race against President Obama, although he still has a ways to go. The president still leads Gingrich in Pennsylvania, but Ohio and Florida are too close to call,” Brown explains.

The Quinnipiac poll is only one day after a CNN/Time poll showed Gingrich with a 13 points lead on Romney in Iowa and a 23 points ahead in South Carolina and Florida.

Newt Gingrich Speaks At Republican Jewish Coalition: “We Will Send The Embassy From Tel Aviv To Jerusalem, As Of That Day”     “This is an administration which, frankly, should be firing the ambassador to Belgium, who gave a stunningly anti-Semitic speech,” Gingrich told the audience. “This is an administration which, frankly, should be reprimanding the Secretary of Defense for an insulting performance the other day.”

Gingrich criticized as “outragious” Obama’s Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s speech at the Saban forum last week, where Panetta called on Israeli and Palestinian leaders to “get to the damn table.”

“Panetta is a fine domestic politician, but his speech was outrageous. How about saying to Hamas, give up violence and come to the table? How about saying to the PLO, recognize Israel and come to the table? This one-sided continuing pressure that says it’s always Israel’s fault, no matter how bad the other side is, has to stop. The fact that Secretary Clinton would talk about discrimination against women in Israel, and then meet with Saudis? ” he said.

In a Gingrich administration, on the opening day, there will be an executive order about two hours after the inaugural address,” Newt explained. “We will send the Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as of that day.”

Gingrich also promised to fund “every dissident group” to promote the regime change, arguing its the only rational policy in the long run.

Moody’s Cuts Three French Banks    “Liquidity and funding conditions have deteriorated significantly for (the three banks),”said Moody’s.

The probability that the banks will face further funding pressures has risen in line with the worsening European debt crisis.”

“Cameron Is A Coward”: European Politicians Slam British EU Veto    “The game of always wanting to have a say in the debate while also wrecking every compromise is not acceptable in the long run,” says Weber. “You can’t be a little bit pregnant.”

“Now, we must put pressure on the British and force them, by implementing tough regulations on financial markets, to decide if they want out of the EU or if they want to stay inside,” says Green politician Cohn-Bendit.

Communist Occupy Wall Street Protesters Shut Down ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Set Depicting OWS    Obama’s reason for running for President is as he said it was — for the Occupiers. And they seem to be like the Nazi Stormtroopers, willing, able and ready to do damage to whatever they don’t like.

More than 100 Communist Occupiers stormed the set for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” which is across from the Manhattan State Supreme Courthouse. They shut down production of an OWS-themed episode. Do you think President Divider-in Chief Obama will reprimand them for this illegal act or ANY illegal act they commit – unless it gets massive media attention? Hitler didn’t care either!

Issa: “There Is A Rahm Emanuel Moment” “To Take Away Or Limit People’s Second Amendment Rights”     Don’t you see that when the Obama Administration was telling American as per President Obama that American gun dealers were responsible for guns ending up in Mexico to be used by the Mexican Drug Cartels all the while his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was at the U.N. trying to inhibit OUR Second Amendment rights, all the while his Top Cop, corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder, was busy sending over 2,000 dangerous guns and over 2,000 grenades along with a guy to help a Mexican Drug Cartel make them and a way to launder their drug money? This was a way to TAKE AWAY our ability to defend against Obama’s dictatorship-in-the-making.

There is a ‘Rahm Emanuel moment‘ that’s pretty obvious,” Issa told Sean Hannity. “When this disaster was happening, they decided to be opportunists and use it to expand the gun database that they are now executing by their own regulations in four states, and asking Congress to expand nationally.”

VERY CLEARLY THEY MADE A CRISIS TO TAKE AWAY OR LIMIT PEOPLE’S SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS,” Darrel Issa explained to Americans on Fox.

ANOTHER Obama Associate Sentenced To Federal Prison    Rod Blagojevich was Illinois’ 40th governor and an Obama associate who was just sentenced to 14 years in prison for the attempted sale of a U.S. Senate seat, illegal shakedowns for campaign cash and lying to federal agents. He was sentenced in 2011 and won’t be eligible for parole until he serves 11 years 11 months.

CDN: “Barack Obama and Eric Holder both claim to be ignorant of this operation but are they not responsible for the actions of the bureaucrats that they appoint to office?”     TO: Sen. Grassley, Rep. Issa, June 3, 2011

“I am writing about the controversy over the BAFTE and “Project Gunrunner”. I have discovered quite a lot about this operation in my research. I have read about the illegal activities and the deaths involved, including that of Border patrol Agent Brian Terry on December 10, 2010 in a remote area near Nogales, Arizona. I don’t know how much information you have on this so I will let you know what I know and hope that, as the members of Congress investigating this matter, you have more information than I have. The gun dealers involved in this reported the suspected straw purchases to the BAFTE, as required by federal law, and were told to let them walk so the guns could be traced to crimes in Mexico. The guns were never traced and this was only discovered because one of the guns that resulted in the death of Agent Terry was left at the scene of the shootout with the border patrol agents.

“Hillary Clinton runs all over the world decrying the “gun show loophole” and claiming that guns bought at gun shows and dealers like the ones in Arizona are the cause of the violence in Mexico. We all know that this is a huge lie to impose their brand of Marxist tyranny upon We the People of the United States of America. I believe the number she claims is 90% of the guns used in crimes come from gun dealers in the United States. You and I know, as does Hillary, that this is an absolute lie but she spouts it anyway.

“According to Darren Gil, the agency’s attaché in Mexico City, he was not informed of this operation nor was anyone in the Mexican government. Mr. Gil was forced to resign and claims that the authority for this operation came from the BATFE director and the Justice Department, headed by Eric Holder. When Mr. Gil found out about an unusually high number of guns captured by Mexican authorities being traced back to Phoenix, he asked for information. He told CBS in an interview that the meetings in which he challenged his superiors about the operation turned into shouting matches and he was instructed to continue to keep his Mexican counterparts in the dark about the operation.

“BATFE agent John Dodson was also attempting to use the ‘whistleblower’ statutes to reveal this illegal operation but was thwarted by a lack of response from superiors who refused to answer e-mails and telephone calls. Agent Dodson told CBS that his superiors told him that “if they were going to make omelets that they had to break some eggs”. It is a shame that one of those “eggs” that had to be broken was Brian Terry. All the time this was going on the administration was using the violence in Mexico as an excuse to attempt to subvert the 2nd Amendment and restrict law abiding citizens from owning firearms, in violation of the Constitution.

Barak Obama and Eric Holder both claim to be ignorant of this operation but are they not responsible for the actions of the bureaucrats that they appoint to office? I believe they not only knew about this operation but also either conceived it or approved it. This action rises to the level of conspiracy to violate numerous laws, violations that would land me a very long prison sentence if I committed them. Am I to assume that it is permissible for the President of the United States, the Attorney General of the United States, and the Director of the BATFE to enter into a conspiracy to violate firearms laws and the Constitution? If I am bound by these laws certainly the top law enforcement officer of the nation and his boss, the president, should be subject to these same laws.

As a law abiding citizen of the United States, I ask you to do your duty as the members of Congress investigating this matter to file charges and order the arrest of Barak Obama, Eric Holder, and the Director of the BATFE Kenneth Melson for murder in the death of Agent Terry, conspiracy to violate firearms laws, conspiracy to cover up this illegal action, and treason for conspiracy to intentionally violate the provisions of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America cannot stand by and allow the very highest officers in this nation to flagrantly violate the law, and neither can you.

The continued obfuscation and cover-up of this operation is a matter of grave concern to all people who wish to live in a free Republic. If these men are allowed to escape justice for their actions what does that say about the rule of law in our land? What does it say to people like me who obey the law and do our best to make this country great? If this goes unpunished does it mean that I can do as I wish and ignore any law that is inconvenient to me? That seems to be what Obama, Holder, Melson, and others have done, ignore the very law they swore to uphold. What kind of example does that set for others if they are above the law and are allowed to do as they please because they are better than I?

“I guess my question to you is will you do what is called for by law or will you sit around and wring your hands and do nothing? Will you do your duty as officers of the federal government to uphold the law and the Constitution or will you sit back and hold hearings that gain no information, and let this slide so as to not make waves? Do you have the courage to stand on law and order or will you turn a blind eye to evil and corruption? The whole nation is looking for elected officials who will stand by their oath of office and represent the Constitution and We the People of the United States of America, a quality that seems to be in very short supply these days. Will you be the ones we are looking for to show true leadership and integrity or will you be another cog in the wheel of that corruption? I know members of Congress aren’t very good at answering letters but I would very much appreciate an answer to this one. I think the American people deserve an answer to the questions I have posed here. Are you truly servants of the people?

“I am sending this letter to Sen. Charles Grassley, Sen. Tom Coburn, Sen. Jim Inhofe, Sen. Harry Reid, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Rep. Dan Boren, Rep. John Boehner, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and Rep. Darrell Issa.

Dr. David Barton On Why President Obama Must Be Defeated in 2012

“I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that he is a one-term President !

Why am I doing this ?
It is because:

– I do not share Obama’s vision or value system for America ;
I do not share his Abortion beliefs;
I do not share his radical Marxist’s concept of re-distributing wealth;
– I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make $150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August);
– I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;
– I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation;
– I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;
– I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than our American Citizens who need help;
I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;
I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land;
– I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public);
I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America;
– I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East; and
– I certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.
Bottom line: my America is vastly different from Obama’s, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my GOD to do what is Right!
They have challenged capital punishment, the right to
bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code!
They have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!

Unite behind Obama? Never!
I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!” — Dr. David Barton

War on Drugs Partly Racist War By Conservatives, Republicans and Others Against Political Enemies — WARNING: Please Help to End Immoral, EVIL Drug Prohibition Laws!

The way political opposition forces for thousands of years operated by prohibiting only CERTAIN drugs and criminalizing them in attempts to rise or stay in power, is the same way Conservatives, Republicans and others are doing today: criminalize otherwise law-abiding citizens so that many of their political enemies are neutralized and/or silenced.

The War on Drugs started (really its been about 80 years) with a corrupt Republican politician named Richard Nixon, who spied on his enemies and focused on eliminating them by locking them up over simple drug violations. I, supposedly a “good” Conservative Republican (only vote that way because Democrats are worse) supported the War on Drugs. I changed over the years to only wanting to decriminalize Cannabis, but keeping other already illegal drugs illicit, then to legalizing Cannabis but still keeping other illicit drugs illegal, to now knowing I was WRONG about the entire subject and believe ALL drugs now criminalized should be legal so that government regulates them, instead of the ruthless Drug Cartels.

What all of us need to do is ask the two simple, basic questions that should determine whether or not we should support  a law or not. The first basic question is whether the law we support is Constitutional — especially from the standpoint of looking at the law from the viewpoint of Freedom of Religion, Speech and Assembly. The War on Drugs FAILS at protecting all three of these precious rights. Secondly, does the law fulfill the basic premise of Government that it does NOT deprive someone of their pursuit of happiness that all are guaranteed, as long as what they are pursuing doesn’t harm someone else? The War on Drugs FAILS at this very basic question of the very foundation of why Government exists in the first place.

You see, we grew up on D.A.R.E. programs that LIED to us about the severity of illicit drugs and listened to politicians who wanted to make outlaws of those they politically opposed on the issue of illegality of CERTAIN drugs. We now have to realize that we have been lied to about Hemp and Cannabis by many forces, including the Drug Industry, Alcohol Industry and many other industries that have a vested interest in keeping this evil War on Drugs continuing.

From the start, U.S. Drug Policy was determined along racial lines, with the first law banning opium smoking in the late 1800s because it was the favorite of Chinese laborers who were brought here to build the railroads, even though White folks used opium too, but they sipped it in their drinks, which was considered perfectly acceptable.

Cocaine was also a popular drug in the late 19th Century, with cigarettes treated with it, medicines derived from it and even the Sears catalogue offering it for sale. But when the Journal of the American Medical Association published an editorial on cocaine use among blacks in the South, President Theodore Roosevelt appointed a racist named Dr. Hamilton Wright to head up his version of the War on Drugs. Wright stirred up anti-black and anti-Latino sentiments.

When the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs was formed in 1930, its head, Harry Anslinger, started a Crusade against Cannabis, which was a drug that was popular among Mexicans and black jazz musicians. Anslinger said the drug “can arouse in blacks and Hispanics a state of menacing fury or homicidal attack.”

Nelson Rockefeller, longtime New York governor is widely remembered as the architect of New York’s draconian drug laws enacted in 1973 mandating that possession of even small amounts of cocaine or heroin be punished with minimum sentences of 15 years to life in prison—even for those with no prior record.

As a result of these laws, some 200,000 men, women and children were condemned to spend decades in prison. Today, nearly 90% of those incarcerated in New York on drug charges are black or Latino, and the Rockefeller laws became the model for drug laws all across the country that eventually imprisoned hundreds of thousands more in the racist War on drugs. The number of people incarcerated in the U.S. has grown eightfold since 1970, with 2.3 million behind bars today — 70% of them Black or Latino.

A 2009 report by the New York Civil Liberties Union said that the Rockefeller laws are “New York’s Jim Crow Laws.” In the 1950s, when Jim Crow segregation was still legal in the South, Black Americans made up 30% of the national prison population. But today, as a result of the War on Drugs, Blacks, which account for only 13% of the U.S. population, make up over 50% of prison inmates, eight times the rate of imprisonment for Whites. And according to a 2007 Justice Policy Institute report, Black men are sent to prison on drug charges at ten times the rate of white men, even though their drug use is about the same.

Between 1994 and 2003 the average time served by blacks for drug crimes grew by 62%, compared to 17% for Whites. And on average, Black men and women spend nearly as much time in prison on drug charges as Whites convicted of violent crimes. The federal drug laws for crack and cocaine possession seem blatantly racist, punishing those for possession of crack far more severely than those for powder cocaine, which Whites mostly use. Crack cocaine is simply the cheaper version of the same substance cocaine is derived from, although some say it is more addictive.

According to a Human Rights Watch report, 82.6 million White people in the U.S. have used an illicit drug in their lifetime compared with 12.5 million Black Americans. A total of 5.6 million Whites have used crack cocaine compared to 1.5 million Blacks. And between 2005-2006 2.5 million Whites sold illicit drugs compared with 712,000 Blacks.

A study by The Sentencing Project reveals that a Black person is 3.4 times more likely to be arrested for illegal drugs than a White person. with all 43 major U.S. cities having more Black people (per capita) being arrested than White people (per capita).

Former New York Police Commissioner Lee Brown explain it this way:

“In most large cities, the police focus their attention on where they see conspicuous drug use… Conspicuous drug use is generally in your low-income neighborhoods that generally turn out to be your minority neighborhoods….It’s easier for police to make an arrest when you have people selling drugs on the street corner than those who are in the suburbs or in office buildings. The end result is that more blacks are arrested than whites because of the relative ease in making those arrests.”

Blacks Americans are also incarcerated more than Whites for drug crimes, with the Drug Policy Alliance Network showing that Blacks constitute 13% of drug users, but are 38% of people arrested for drug offenses, and 59% of those convicted. The discrepancy between Blacks and Whites incarcerated for drug crimes transcends all 50 states, with every state having more Black Americans incarcerated for drug crimes (per capita) than White Americans — and by large margins.

Michael Tonry, author of the book, ‘the War on Drugs has failed,’ says it this way:

“If policy makers’ aim in setting drug and crime control policies had been to reduce poor black men’s chances of earning a decent living, or becoming a good husband and father, or being socialized into positive social values, it is hard to see how they could have done it more effectively.”

The Congressional Black Caucus was very much in favor of the 1986 “100-to-1” law resulting in penalizing the possession of crack more severely than powdered cocaine. They were aware that this would disproportionately affect black communities, but they nonetheless used these laws to try to lessen the murderous violence that open-air drug selling entails. So, there is a non-racist motivation that MOST Conservatives, Republicans, Democrats and others are espousing, but the effects have been horrible for the Black community in America.

These same Conservatives, Republicans, Liberals and others ARE in fact Communists, though, since they are still targeting their political opponents through laws that criminalize drugs that THEY deem evil, though it is partly the EFFECTS of the drugs they are really trying to control. If they were just trying to CONTROL the actual drugs, then the violence associated with leaving drug control to ruthless criminal gangs would virtuously disappear within a short amount of time. So, it is BEHAVIOR that really is the key point concerning D.P., with DISAGREEMENT by Americans on whether Drug Prohibition laws are Constitutional or not. And if that is the real question, then the whole notion of a so-called War on Drugs is not only un-American, but truly evil and against foundational principles of Governance ceeding an absolute right to individual liberty — no matter how political or socially repulsive it is to others — so that one can practice their Religious Beliefs without government retribution, as long as by doing so they do not infringe on the enumerated rights of others.

Turning to Cannabis, according to the CJCJ, half of California’s cannabis possession arrestees were non white in 1990, with 28% under age 20. Last year, 62% were non white and 42% were under age 20. Cannabis possession arrests of youth of color rose from approximately 3,100 in 1990 to about 16,300 in 2008 — 300% greater than the rate of population growth in that group.

Black Americans, who make up less than 7% of the state population,  account for 22% of people arrested for all Cannabis offenses and 33% of all Cannabis felony arrests.

The FACTS reveal that the history of Hemp and Cannabis is filled with:

  • Racism
  • Fear
  • Protection of Corporate Profits
  • Yellow Journalism
  • Ignorant, Incompetent, and/or Corrupt Legislators
  • Personal Career Advancement and Greed
  • Cannabis has been illegal for less than 1% of the time that it’s been in use
  • Its known uses go back further than 7,000 B.C.
  • The hemp plant has an incredible 25,000 uses today, with the earliest known woven fabric apparently made of hemp. Over time it has been used for food, paper, rope, cloth, incense, cloth, rope, oil and much more.
  • The first U.S. Cannabis law was enacted at Jamestown Colony, Virginia in 1619. These Puritans knew that hemp would be invaluable to them so they proceeded in “ordering” all farmers to grow Indian hempseed.
  • Several other “must grow” Cannabis laws were enacted over the next 200 years (a person could be jailed for not growing hemp during times of shortage in Virginia between 1763 and 1767)
  • During most of that time hemp was legal tender (you could pay your taxes with hemp)
  • Hemp was such a critical crop that the government strongly encourage people to grow it.
  • The U.S. Census of 1850 counted 8,327 hemp “plantations” (minimum 2,000-acre farm) growing cannabis hemp for cloth, canvas and other things such as the cordage used for bailing cotton
  • In the early 1900s, the western states developed significant tensions with the influx of Mexican-Americans, with California apparently passed the first state Cannabis Law, outlawing “preparations of hemp, or loco weed
  • Other states quickly followed with Cannabis Prohibition laws, including Wyoming (1915), Texas (1919), Iowa (1923), Nevada (1923), Oregon (1923), Washington (1923), Arkansas (1923), and Nebraska (1927), with the laws tending to be specifically targeted against the Mexican-American population
  • When Montana outlawed Cannabis in 1927, the Butte Montana Standard reported a legislator’s comment: “When some beet field peon takes a few traces of this stuff…he thinks he has just been elected president of Mexico, so he starts out to execute all his political enemies.”
  • In Texas, a Senator said on the floor of the Senate: “All Mexicans are crazy, and this stuff [marijuana] is what makes them crazy.”
  • In the eastern states, the “problem” of Cannabis was attributed to a combination of Latin Americans and Black jazz musicians, where Cannabis became part of the music scene (Louis Armstrong’s “Muggles”, Cab Calloway’s “That Funny Reefer Man,” Fats Waller’s “Viper’s Drag”)
  • Newspapers in 1934 editorialized: “Marihuana influences Negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men’s shadows and look at a white woman twice.”
  • Dr. A. E. Fossier wrote in the 1931 New Orleans Medical and Surgical Journal: “Under the influence of hashish those fanatics would madly rush at their enemies, and ruthlessly massacre every one within their grasp.”
  • Within a short period of time, Cannabis began being linked with violent behavior.

It is important to note that earlier (1914), the Harrison Act was passed, which provided federal tax penalties for opiates and cocaine. It was considered at the time that the federal government did not have the constitutional power to actually outlaw alcohol or drugs, and this is why Alcohol Prohibition required a Constitutional Amendment.

At that time the judiciary regularly placed the Tenth Amendment in the path of Congressional regulation of “local” affairs, with the direct regulation of medical practice considered beyond Congressional power under the Commerce Clause. But since drugs couldn’t be outlawed at the federal level, they decided to use federal taxes as a way around the restriction. The Harrison Act caused legal uses of opiates and cocaine to be taxed (supposedly as a way to get revenue, as this was the only way it would hold up in the Courts).

Starting in 1930 with a new division in the Treasury Department being established called the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Harry J. Anslinger as its director, marked the beginning of an all-out war against Cannabis.

Here are some quotes which have been attributed to Anslinger and his Gore Files:

“There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.”

“…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.”

“Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.”

Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”

“Marijuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing”

“You smoke a joint and you’re likely to kill your brother.”

“Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.”

“In the year 1090, there was founded in Persia the religious and military order of the Assassins, whose history is one of cruelty, barbarity, and murder, and for good reason: the members were confirmed users of hashish, or marijuana, and it is from the Arabs’ ‘hashashin’ that we have the English word ‘assassin.’”

Harry Anslinger got some help with his Crusade from William Randolf Hearst, owner of a huge chain of newspapers. Hearst had hated Mexicans and had invested heavily in the timber industry, seeing hemp as a direct threat to his newspaper chain and didn’t want to see the development of hemp paper in competition.

Here are a couple of outlandish quotes of his:

“By the tons it is coming into this country — the deadly, dreadful poison that racks and tears not only the body, but the very heart and soul of every human being who once becomes a slave to it in any of its cruel and devastating forms…. Marijuana is a short cut to the insane asylum. Smoke marijuana cigarettes for a month and what was once your brain will be nothing but a storehouse of horrid specters. Hasheesh makes a murderer who kills for the love of killing out of the mildest mannered man who ever laughed at the idea that any habit could ever get him….”

“Was it marijuana, the new Mexican drug, that nerved the murderous arm of Clara Phillips when she hammered out her victim’s life in Los Angeles?… THREE-FOURTHS OF THE CRIMES of violence in this country today are committed by DOPE SLAVES — that is a matter of cold record.”

Remember that one of the very first things people say when asked about Drug Prohibition and the War on Drugs is a COLLECTIVE ARGUMENT response about the “safety” of society (or children) or a POLITICAL ARGUMENT about whether illegal drugs are “good” for an individual. Remember too, that you can put the words “food,” “cigarettes,” “alcohol,” “caffeine” and virtuously any other “dangerous” drug or entity that one can consume in place of “cannabis” or “cocaine” or “hash.” So, because Conservatives, Republicans and others have supported the War on Drugs in the past, they should now speak out  against the War on Drugs, since they really are not racist nor Communist at heart — or are they???
