On the Name Jesus (Hesus)
(The name Jesus in Greek)
The Holy Book of the Egyptians about the Great Invisible Spirit, the Father whose name cannot be uttered, He who came forth from the heights of Perfection...And the Throne of his Glory was established...on which his unrevealable name is inscribed... He whose name is the invisible symbol...(The Gospel of the Egyptians, the Nag Hammadi Library).
(JESUS) is a hidden name, Christ is a revealed name. For this reason is not particular to any language...As for Christ, in Syriac it is Messiah, in Greek it is Christ. Certainly all others have it according to their own language. The Nazarene is one who reveals what is hidden. Christ has everything in itself, whether man or angel, or mystery, and the Father...(The Gospel of Phillip).
"Rabbi Simeon cited the following from the Book of Mystery. 'The Divine Name has both a revealed and an undisclosed form. In its revealed form it is written YHVH, BUT IN ITS UNDISCLOSED FORM IT IS WRITTEN IN OTHER LETTERS, THIS UNDISCLOSED FORM REPRESENTING THE MOST RECONDITE OF ALL.'" (Zohar: Numbers 146b).
(The proto-Hebrew Phoenician alphabet, the source of the Greek alphabet)
Accepted scholarship has the Phoenician alphabet finding its way out of the East (a letter here, a mark there), across the islands of the Mediterranean to the mainland of Greece, in and around the 9th and 10th centuries B.C. The evidence, however, placing the Phoenicians out on the Atlantic, as far back as the Atlantean period (from the time of Adam to Noah), immediately suggests that this form of writing is a product of Atlantean civilization, and that it arrived in the East centuries later, along with those merchants who eventually entered the Mediterranean, naming such trading ports after themselves as Tyre, Sidon, and Carthage. (Please read Sailing to Paradise, The Discovery of the Americas by 7,000 BC, by Jim Baily, and see Ezekiel, chapters 26 to 28):
"O Solon, Solon, you Greeks are all children, and there is no such thing as an old Greek. 'What do you mean by that?' inquired Solon. 'You are all young in mind,' came the reply: 'you have no belief rooted in the old tradition, and no knowledge hoary with age...
Our records tell how your city checked a great power (the children of "Cain") which arrogantly advanced from its base in the Atlantic ocean to attack the cities of Europe and Asia. For in those days the Atlantic was navigable. There was an island (a continent), opposite the strait which you call (so you say) the Pillars of Hercules, an island larger than Libya and Asia combined; from it travelers in those days could reach the other islands, and from them the whole opposite continent which surrounds what can truly be called the ocean. For the sea within the strait we are talking about is like a lake with a narrow entrance; the outer ocean is the real ocean and the land which entirely surrounds it is properly termed continent.
On this island of Atlantis had risen a powerful and remarkable dynasty of kings, who ruled the whole island, and many other islands as well and parts of the continent; in addition it controlled within the strait, Libya (Africa) up to the borders of Egypt and Europe as far as Tyrrhenia. This dynasty, gathering its whole power together, attempted to enslave at a single stroke, your country and ours and all the territory within the strait… At a later time there was earthquakes and "floods" of extraordinary violence, and in a single dreadful day and night all your fighting men were swallowed up by the earth, and the island of Atlantis was similarly swallowed up by the sea and vanished; this is why the sea in that area is to this day impassable to navigation, which is hindered by mud just below the surface, the remains of a sunken island." (see Job 41:30; 2 Peter 3:3-7). The Timaeus, Plato.
The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues...(Revelation 17:15).
...And the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined...(Daniel 9:26).
Please see Chapter 4 on the meanings of this "flood" (these wars) and this "disappearance," and then reason how the early Phoenicians were mostly left after these events to the singular business of commerce and trade. (They returned to the business of warfare again under the English and American flags during the last five centuries of our common era):
"Since we now know that the bluestones which were used in Stonehenge II came from Wales, we might conclude that at this early date these people already had considerable expertise in navigation to travel the ocean waters around Britain. The most sensible transport route from Wales to the site of Stonehenge is by water...
As more Beaker People came into Britain, the various cultures blended to form a new one, the Wessex culture. By 1,000 B.C. (the time of D.V.D. and Solomon) Britain had a Bronze Age culture which was dominated by a wealthy, powerful, aristocracy WHOSE TRADE EXTENDED TO CENTRAL EUROPE, Ireland, Crete, and Greece..." The Stonehenge Chronicles, p.87.
"Like them are the writers who tell of the Sidonians on the Persian Gulf, or somehwere else on Oceanus, and who place the wanderings of Menelaus, and likewise the Phoenicians out on Oceanus. And not the least reason for not believing them (Strabo will say) is the fact that they contradict one another. For some say even the Sidonians who are our neighbors are colonists from the Sidonians out on Oceanus...but some hold that the Sidonians on Oceanus are colonists from our Phoenicia." Strabo's Geography I.2.35.
The point is that they were there, and that others wrote about it. And from this we reason that this ancient Hebrew, proto-Greek, Phoenician script was not only being employed by the Druid-Hebrew scribes of Central Europe in the time of D.V.D. and Solomon, but that it arrived there in its earliest form centuries before when the children of Israel came back up into Europe in the time of Jehoshua (YHWShWA...). We find them in history, and all throughout ancient Europe bearing the eponymous name of DaN--the FIFTH son of Jacob. (Genesis 29:30-Gen.30:6). This because as they came up into this land they did so under the shadow and the direction of the Angel of Divine Presence, whose own Strong Right Arm is revealed at the FIFTH place on the World Tree named DiN, or Power.
The Dalet ( ) in the name DaN--representing one of the Doorways leading into the Mystery from all Four directions--North, South, East, and West ( )--is also equivalent to the number Four that seems to be missing in the upper court on the Oracle. This empty space, which in the traditions of the Kabbalah is named Daat, or "Knowledge," represents in this case the mysteries of Europe that were hidden from the world in Old Testament times, but fulfilled and revealed later in the mystery of Christ: The letter N, or Nun, in the name DaN, which is numerically equivalent to the number 50, also represents and looks forward to the events of the great Jubilee, which all of Israel MUST observe if it is to appear before God alive, and fully delivered, on the morning of the coming age. (Leviticus 25:1-10; Colossians 2:16,17).. It also answers the question: And why did DaN remain in ships.(Judges 5:17).
Place Daat (the mystery of "Old Testament" times) over Tipheret (the revelation of New Testament times). Both converge at that hidden place in the Center of Europe. (Isa.28:16-18).
These earliest of Hebrew letters provided the form for the sacred and (very peculiar) writings of the Hebrew-Druid-Jewish school of thought, the same that the children of Israel also brought back with them when they returned to "MIDian" (Central Europe) after the time of Moses (Exodus 2:15 to 3:12). These oracles governed the religious thinking of almost the whole of Europe (and beyond), up to the time of those mythical and archetypal figures of D.V.D. and Solomon. (See 2 Chronicles, chapters 1, and 2)...
And after (DaViD) rose up a wise Son, and for his sake he dwelt at large.
Solomon reigned in a peaceable time, and was honoured; for God made all quiet round about him, that he might build A HOUSE IN HIS NAME, and prepare His sanctuary for ever.
How wise wast thou in thy youth, and as a flood, filled with understanding!
THY SOUL COVERED THE WHOLE EARTH, and thou filledst it with dark parables.
Thy name went far unto the islands; and for thy peace wast thou beloved.
The countries marvelled at thee for thy songs, and proverbs, and parables, and interpretations.
BY THE NAME OF THE LORD GOD, which is called the Lord God of Israel, thou didst gather gold as tin, and didst multiply silver as lead...(Ecclesiasticus 47:12-18).
But because these universal teachings were also being conscripted by the world at large, and used by the sons of Darkness in particular, to establish city-states and empires of their own (indeed, from the time of the first Egyptian dynasties right up to our own time), (which was, of course, the intent of the Spirit to begin with, so that the Darkness could come at last to its own fruition), the Hebrew writings themselves were being re-crafted. Through a whole process of kabbalistic manipulations the old Indo-European (primarily proto-Gaelic) tongue was being transformed into the priestly Hebrew dialect of the Torah...which had the effect of hiding the central meanings of the Hebrew Mystery from the rest of the world. (The hidden priestly writings, however, after finding their way into the spoken dialects of other peoples and nations--most noted among them the Aramaic culture of the Middle East--gave rise to the forced, yet spoken Hebrew language of today. But in the beginning there was no Hebrew language other than Gaelic)...
The Phoenicians, long fallen from the ancient relationship they enjoyed with the Hebrew adepts, whose forbears traveled across the sea together to Eden and back, used their developing language skills to facilitate commerce, introducing its written forms into the spoken dialects of those it did business with. While at the same time the Hebrew scribes were employing their skills, and these same Phoenician characters, in both their hieroglyphic and numerical forms, to compose the scriptures. The 22 characters of the Hebrew-Phoenician alphabet, corresponding to the 22 lines of influence that connect each of the Ten sefiroth on the Tree of Life to each other, reveal in part how the spoken and written word was being transmitted and received from culture to culture, and the pathways it took from one end of the earth to the other--from those ancient times to our own.
Thus the other far-reaching effect is that as the words and letters joined themselves to the various written traditions of those times, they had a governing influence on the process of literary transformation. As the old dialects died, and as emerging languages such as the Greek, and now modern English, overshadowed them, many of the meanings that were sewn into the old would reappear in the new, and as such were passed along to subsequent generations. An example is the shape and the numerical equivalence of the letter ayin in the Old-Hebrew script. It is in shape, a Circle, and in numerical value, 70. Thus where the phrase Seventy years is used at Jeremiah 25:11, we are in this case to visualize a Circle, one that is completing itself here at the end of the age. And where it says: And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were SEVENTY souls...(Exodus 1:5; Deuteronomy 32:8), we are to visualize the full number of every individual who has ever entered into the great Circle of this mystery, from one end of the earth to the other. Or the letter zayin. In the Old-Hebrew, as in the Greek, it is equivalent to the number 7. Seven is the place on the Oracle where all of the events of this age are coming to their conclusion. Thus by the time the letter Z finds its way into English usage it is fittingly, at the end.
From Proto-Hebrew to Greek (the Septuagint)and Latin to English
Having, over a period of twenty years and more, mastered not only the meanings of the holy letters and words, as well as the spoken dialects of those to whom they were sent (please see 2 Kings 22:14), these ancient adepts went abroad. Coming among the different peoples, perhaps carrying a Cadeuces, an image of the Serpent on the Tree (Numbers 21:6-9), indicating that they were healers and that they had come in peace, they were allowed to take up residence and to teach...
(We have seen in history, however, clearly from the time of Christ to our own, how these things degenerate, how they devolve back into the same state of tribalism [and eventually nationalism] that these Hebrew priests came to address in the first place. It happens when these priestly orders forget their focus and their mission, and when they grow comfortable and become re-entangled over time in the secular causes, the petty intrigues, and the politics and then the wars of the people around them; and when they become--for whatever social or personal reasons--a sometimes-unwitting, and sometimes-blatant, part of the established order [or mis-order] themselves. More endeared to their high positions among the people, than they were to the task they arrived with--the task of revealing spiritual reality to the natural mind--these priests soon lost sight of the Divine Presence that hovered over them, and passed this loss directly onto those they ordained in their places. [Understand Hebrews 5:1-4]. And these became, instead, as almost the entire organized church is today, a cult of worldlings--worldly priests, and worldly teachers--in a word, the priests and the prophets of Ba'al...1 Kings, chapter 18).
Appearing among the people, with many of the precepts, commandments, and epic verses learned at the sacred college committed to memory, they also carried with them portions of their cryptic texts. As they read from them, however, they spoke in the dialect of the people. The written Levitical expressions themselves had no exact spoken form. They were used to both preserve and transmit spiritual concepts in the form of allegorical stories and metaphors. If there was such a thing as a spoken Hebrew language in those times it was, as we said before, the ancient language of Europe (see 2 Kings 18:26), which after centuries of attrition and assimilation settled down in the several Gaelic or Celtic dialects which were spoken in the time of the prophets...and which were later driven into near obscurity before the Romans (and need we mention the Roman church that supported them from the times of Constantine and Charlegmane onwards).
"It has long been the general opinion of the learned, that there was a universal elementary language of Europe, which for geographical reasons of the extent of territory anciently occupied by the Celts, may be properly enough called the Celtic. This language, which the more primitive it was, must be the stronger of the energy of nature, must also in the simplicity of its origin have been purely monosyllabic (as was Hebrew), a form it was not possible to retain in the various dialects which sprung out of it, and in which at length lost itself. Some branches are only now to be seen; THE ROOTS REMAIN DEEPLY COVERED...Its various uses in powerfully assisting conjectures on those ancient times in which it must have once flourished; in illustrating dark passages in history; in disembroiling the chaos of ancient mythology; in restoring or fixing just definitions in very important points; in discovering the elementary foundations of our own living language, at this instant of current use; all contribute to render it a valuable object of literary erudition...
The difficulty was to hit the middle point between the two extremes, at which the monosyllabic constitutives of the Celtic discernibly takes the form of language, and furnishes the roots of that immense branch-work into the various dialects, which shoot up and expand into distinct languages, such as the GREEK, LATIN, the Teutonic, &c with all their numberless subdivisions...
(And then the author says)...This language, which I flatter myself with the idea of having in a great measure recovered, is precisely the language alluded to by Homer, which he calls the 'language of the Gods'...It was also the language in which Plato averred, that the source of Grecian mythology was to be sought, as Solon had been given to understand by Sonchis the high priest at Sais in Egypt. He calls it the language of the Barbarians: but the word in its primary sense only meant a person born in a distant country." A Sketch of an Attempt at the Retrieval of the Ancient Celtic or Primitive Language of Europe, London, 1776.
"Thus philosophy, a science of the highest utility, flourished in antiquity among the barbarians, shedding its light over the nations, and afterward it came to Greece." Stromata I.XV.71.3. History and Religion of the Druids, p.106.
It containeth therefore wise sayings, dark sentences, and parables, and certain particular ancient godly stories of those that pleased God...
Whereas many and great things have been delivered unto us by the Law and the prophets, and by many others who have followed in their steps, for the which thing Israel ought to be commended for learning and wisdom; and wherefore not only the readers must needs become skillful themselves, but also (those) that desire to learn (that it might) be able to profit them which are without both by speaking and writing.
My grandfather Joshua (rendered in the English version, Jesus) when he had given himself to the reading of the Law and the Prophets, and other books of our fathers, and had gotten therein good judgment, was drawn on himself to write something pertaining to learning and wisdom; to the intent that those who desire to learn, and are addicted to these things, might profit much more in living according to the Law.
Wherefore let me intreat you to read it with favour and attention, and to pardon us, wherein we may seem to come short of some words which we have labored to interpret. For the same things uttered in Hebrew, and translated into another tongue have not the same force in them; and not only these things, but the Law itself, and the Prophets, and the rest of the books, have no small difference in them when they are spoken in their own language...(The Prologue to Ecclesiasticus, The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach).
"ALCELDAMA...which in the first chapter of Acts of the Apostles, 19th verse, is said, in the proper tongue of Jerusalem, to signify 'a field of blood,' has precisely the same signification in Celtic. A very learned man denies the word Alceldama to be (what we in our time call) Hebrew, and forces it from the Syriac. Without pretending to decide the point, I can only say, that whether Hebrew or Syriac, it is also clearly Celtic. Alceldama, literally translated is the Field of Murder...
And finally...Some years ago a Mr. Bullet published a work entitled, De Apostolica Ecclesia Galicanae Origine, to prove that the Gospel had been preached in Gaul, in Spain, and in Great Britain in the lifetime of the Apostles. I have not seen this work but make not the least doubt of his having established his point. Nothing is more demonstratable. I have strong reason to believe that three of the Gospels were originally written in Gaul...
It is then a fact, not involved in the shades of fable, but clearly authenticated by history, that Britain (and her Druid Mysteries) had by much the general share under Providence, in giving to Rome (thus the Roman church), at once its Emperor and its religion." London, 1776.
And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the Cross. And the writing was, Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.
This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the City: and it was written IN HEBREW, and GREEK, and LATIN...(John 19:20).
These are among the many things that moved Iulius Caesar not many years before the time of Christ, when--upon his return from the northern wars against the Druid-led armies of Europe--he assumed the title of Pontifix Maximus, in essence the High Priest of the "Pagan" mysteries. The Papacy readily assumed this title for itself upon the collapse of the Western empire because of its distant connection to these same Hebrew mysteries.
The true priests, however (not since the time of Christ, nor in the time of the Prophets), did not engage in warfare against other human beings, or support the killing of others in the name of God. They fought the greater Holy War against the darkness, against the philosophies, and against every other fallen thought-form that weighed against humanity's ability to understand these higher matters. They also, of course, had to wage a constant battle against themselves (against the Serpent in themselves), in order to keep their own natural impulses and inclinations under subjectivity (in balance). It was a war within and without. But it was never waged in the literal, mortal-combat sense against other individuals. (2 Corinthians 10:1-6). Their weapons were always the parables, the natural metaphors, and the psycho-historical allusions which the Spirit provided, thus the deeper, unwritten implications of the Law itself, which turn everyone who discovers them into true spiritual warriors. (Romans 8:4-8; Ephesians 6:10-17).
The ancient Phoenicians meanwhile, taking advantage of the judgments that were falling down upon those who were originally charged with keeping the Covenant--and this because the children of Israel would no longer hew to the underlying meanings of the Law, or listen to the prophets, and of the fact that Israel was destined to be scattered more than once from the center of its own spiritual state of Mind--must have come to believe that they themselves were the "keepers" of the Oracles of God. (Woe to the "keepers," or worse yet, the "usurpers" of the Oracles of God). The cult-center on the island of Crete, near Mt. Ida (or IuDeA) was an attempt to create in the literal sea an image of those things that were being hidden in the middle of the figurative Sea (where the Great Dragon "literally" lay hidden from the eyes of the world) in the center of Europe. (Isaiah 27 to 29, KJV). This, of course, prompted Paul centuries later to refer to the inhabitants of Crete as "slowbellies," an allusion to the serpent who must crawl upon its own geological belly all the days of its natural life.
The Temples of Initiation
That the ancient temples of initiation in Egypt were models of the Sophia Above, or of the "Heavenly Jerusalem," to use a Jewish Gnostic term, or, in other words, of the Type of the world-building, we may well believe. Thus it is with interest that we read the remarks of Adams on the temple of Denderah (or Annu)...The temple was dedicated to Hat-Hor, whose ancient title was the Virgin Mother.
"In the centre of the temple is the Hall of the Altar, with entrances opening east and west; and beyond it lies the great hall of the temple entitled the Hall of the Child in his Cradle, from whence access is obtained to the secret and sealed shrine entered once a year by the high priest, on the night of MID-SUMMER...
And as the chief hall of the temple was the Hall of the Child in his Cradle, so the chief representation on the planisphere is the Holy Mother with the divine Child in her arms. Thrice-Greatest Hermes, Studies in Hellenistic Theosophy and Gnosis, by G.R.S. Mead, p.74.
"They passed by the streams of Ocean, and by the White Rock, by the Gates of the Sun, and the People of Dreams." (For Ocean is the) "birth-causing of gods and birth-causing of men"__flowing and ebbing for ever, now up and now down.
When Ocean flows down, it is the birth-causing of men, and when it flows up, towards the Wall and Palisade, and the White Rock, it is the birth-causing of gods.
This is what is written: "'I have said ye are Gods and all Sons of the Highest.' (Psalm 82:6)--if ye hasten to flee from Egypt and get you beyond the Red Sea into the Desert;" that is, from the intercourse below to the Jerusalem Above, who is the Mother of the Living. "But if ye turn back again into Egypt"--that is, to the intercourse below--"'ye shall die like men.'" Thrice-Greatest Hermes, p.162.
This place in the Center of Europe was indeed "a terrible place," as Abraham and Jacob saw (Genesis 15: 12, 13; Genesis 28:17), as the witnesses reported (Numbers 13:30-33), as Moses and the prophets warned (Deuteronomy 32:29,30; Isaiah 27 to 29), and as the events of the 20th century testify, . (Consider Ezekiel, chapters 5 to 9; Matthew, chapter 24, and Luke 21). (Departing from this place has been just as terrible. Please see Chapter 10, Ephraim Goes Backward).
Oracles and sacred groves dedicated to these Solar mysteries and the World Tree were established all over Europe, away from the center of that foreboding place. And while God obscured the central meanings from all who were not initiated into the school of the prophets, the world knew just enough about them to fall into the apostacies of the classical ages of Greece and Rome, and to re-create them in what was called the "re-enlightenment" of the modern era. The dimensions of the oracles, and the hidden mysteries, were, after all, both epic and historical. They contained the notion of a City on an epic journey (away from the center of that place), whose citizens would be wise philosophers, and more virtuous than the inhabitants of any other city on earth, and whose own favorite "son" would be chosen by heaven at the most critical time in history to become "king of the world." Why wouldn't Athens, and later Rome, imagine themselves to be this City? After all, didn't they possess the oracles, and the philosophers? And weren't they the masters of (their) world, each in their own time? And didn't they possess the Power? And why shouldn't America imagine itself to be this holy Nation? This Shining City on a Hill? After all, isn't America and the Universal Israel the same nation? Don't they share the same destiny? The prophets of Ba'al say so. And why shouldn't the European States be suffering from similar delusions of future grandeur? Of a Grand Unification (around the Papal order of priests and a Hapsburg monarch perhaps)? After all, this region in the center of Europe is The City of the Great King. (Psalm 48).
Open the books of DaViD and Solomon in Central Europe, 1,000 years before the Christian era, or around 500 years before the carrying away, and return from Babylon. Open these same books again during the Fifteenth to Twentieth centuries of our own times. Read them in light of the oracles. Open the Book of Isaiah, and hear the prophets inveighing against Israel's participation in the founding of the Greek city-states in the Seventh and Eighth centuries B.C., and in the affairs of Grecian culture in general. But also hear them crying out against Israel's participation in the founding of the American city-states in the Eighteenth century of our own times. Open the Book of Jeremiah and see the children of Iuda being led out of Central and Eastern Europe by the Scythian warlords of the Sixth century B.C. Open the Book of Jeremiah again, on the morning of the 20th century. See the Jews being led away to Babylon again, this time into the West--to America. (See Habakkuk 1:1-17; Acts 13:40,41).
Of the whole historical drama, in which the cosmic principles of Symmetry are established, Isaiah says: The book is delivered to one that is learned...and he says, I cannot read it, for it is sealed. (Isaiah 29:11). Thus it was sealed from those who fell away in those times, not only into the secular culture of the Greeks, but past it, beyond the Hellespont, toward that city in the Middle East that Moses built centuries before--as an image in stone-below of that Great City which would be built in time above. (See Galatians 4:21-31). The whole of Israel must have understood the relationship between these two cities, the literal and the spiritual, in the time of Moses, but those who followed after them soon forgot. (Ezekiel 23). Which is why the Samaritans, whose historic task it was to guard the Eastern gates of this mystery, so that no one would come back down and confuse the one city for the other, did not feel indicted by the words of the prophets. It was not them, they said, who were in the transgression, but rather those who pushed their way passed them, back out of Europe...to "Jerusalem." But didn't the oracles say that Israel would rise up out of this Eastern land again, just as it did in the time of YHWShWA? Those who lived there in that time just didn't recognize it as it was happening, when that Druid-like Hebrew prophet John the Baptist appeared among the Essenes to lead the mind of the people back up into the center of their own mysteries. The Samaritan woman recognized it. (John 4:1-26). It was to be a time of Mercy and Love, not armed uprising and rebellion. Those times were in every way, a figure and a mirror-image of our own times--the time of Christ.
The sins of Jeroboam, the son of Solomon, who is figuratively responsible for turning the mind of Israel away from the center of its own mysteries (1 Kings 12:26-31), resulted in another form of heresy which spread westward and northward as well, of which the world will hear little of until just before the time of Christ--the priest-cult, as we have already mentioned, of the Druids. We still have the view of them that Juilius Caesar drew in our minds on his return from Gaul. Samuel, Nathan and the prophets of Israel, were Druids also, prototypes of the later Merlins. Unlike others, however, they never abandoned the mysteries if Iuda. According to the proverb, "To every cow her calf, so to every book its copy," Jeroboam forged "Two Golden Calves." This means that he began to interpret these Solar mysteries according to his own lights, and in so doing perverted the mind of Israel (with a form of the truth however) from one side of the Oracle to the other:
"And he said, I suppose my countrymen that ye know this, THAT EVERY PLACE HATH GOD IN IT, nor is there one determinate place in which He is. But He everywhere hears and sees those who worship him, on which account I do not think it right for you to go so long a journey to Jerusalem which is an enemies city to worship him.
It was man who built the temple. I have also two Golden (Solar) Heifers dedicated to the same God, that those of you who live nearest to them may go and worship...I will ordain certain priests, and let them desirous among you to be a priest bring to God a bullock or a ram WHICH THEY SAY Aaron the priest brought also." Antiquities VIII.8.3-5.
And (Jeroboam) instituted a priesthood of the lowest sort of men, who were not of the tribe of Levi...(1 Kings 12:3-33).
The key phrase is, A ram WHICH THEY SAY Aaron the priest brought also. Unable to interpret the sacred allegories, or the meanings of the natural metaphors and symbols employed in the Torah, an ability, which Paul said, eludes the natural man (see 1 Corinthians 1:18 to 2:16), these priests of the "natural sort" could do no better over the course of the ensuing centuries than to lead their congregations deeper into error and idolatry. As the Saducees in Palestine, they could do no better than to set up ritual and sacrificial images, and to embrace ideas of what they imagined to be the truth, but could never penetrate to the truth itself...
When the powers could not discern the words of Adam, they built chambers and houses in symbolic fashion, and men were defiled...(The Gospel of Phillip).
These were the Druids that we meet in the time of Caesar. God's same Presence overshadowed them but they could no longer gain a clear view of it. Without a direct connection to the Divine Spirit they could not attain to the right mix of mental perceptions necessary to open the Eye of spiritual intuition. The mystery remained for them, as it does for every priestly order aligned to tribal powers, as a--to use a current example--a Rubik's cube unsolved. They would always see one changing face of God or another, but would never be able to comprehend the whole. Such shortsightedness in the face of the unfolding decrees of Nature leads to a state of spiritual, social and political bewilderment and uncertainty. And in a time of judgment it leads to a show of great swelling words and idle threats, against who else, but God?
The rise of terrorism in the world today, and the increasing incidences of violence in the American workplace and schools comes immediately to mind. But why are the people confused about it? Guns, weaponry and explosives are a maddening American pastime. The American nation itself is founded in such violence and terrorism, and in its own wicked state-sponsered intrusion into the lives and workplaces of other peoples. (Please see the chapter entitled "Beware the Hunter"). God hasn't forgotten these things. Thus the nation is only now beginning to reap what it has sown. It is the Law of Nature. It is a Day of Judgment. And therefore the solutions to such growing matters do not, and cannot exist in the present political realm, for therein lies the very cause of it all, and the empty rhetoric of the nation's leaders reveal it. And neither do the punitive measures that Americans are led to enact as a response, offer any hope of a solution, but rather serve to reveal the sociological, or shall we say, the pathological cause of the problems themselves. America is a very sick society, and the sickness is rooted in the Soul. The disease is a spiritual one, and will require exact spiritual measures to cure it. (The decree of judgment, of course, is nullified as soon as the people repent. The Great Day of Atonement was placed in the Circle of the Year for this very purpose). (Ezekiel 33)...
As this Druid heresy spread across the known world of that time (known to them that is), (and please let us realize that this Jeroboam is not a literal individual, but a literary characterization of the whole state of mind that was governing the mind of Israel at that time), two orders of priests were now abroad in the land. One would increasingly make all the compromises necessary in order to rise to prominence among the people, interpreting the precepts of the law in their own literal ways, and the other would be relegated in time to near obscurity. One would even continue to make animal sacrifices on behalf of the people, as the "written" law and custom required (and it might even offer obscure explanations of them in terms of types and images), and the other would not. The latter would tell the people that they must always be prepared to offer themselves instead. They reasoned from the true oral traditions of Moses, showing how when a beast is drug to the altar alive, it leaves "dead," but when a person brings themselves to the altar dead (to the higher realities), they depart "alive." The first order of priests by and large won the day. Becoming friends of the world, and all its fallen ways, they became the enemies of God. (See James 4:4). The other order continued in its own particular way to write the sacred books, and became the dissidents, the outcasts, and the prophets of their times.
When that later fellowship of Essenes came back up into Europe in the time of Christ, to the regions around Tiferet, or Beauty on the Tree of Life (Acts 3:10), they found their Druid "kinsmen" meeting and worshipping in forest groves, under sacred Oaks, or in clearings opened up to the heavens above. (So far so good, for Nature itself is the true Cathedral of God). But they also found them, in ways befitting their fallen states of mind, sacrificing human beings in various ways, and among them crucifixion. The Romans adopted this method of execution from the Druids, who adopted it from the oral precepts of the Torah:
And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree:
His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God); that thy land be not defiled, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance...(Deuteronomy 21:22,23).
"Durant gives something like seventeen references to crucifixion, the earliest instance according to history was Spain, about 200 B.C. Crucifixion was the dishonorable death of a slave...Six thousand slaves were crucified at one time, along the Apian Way about 71 B.C. The custom of crucifying did not rise among the Romans, however. In the many wars of the Romans against the Northern Europeans, the captured Roman soldiers were crucified upon a cross, a Tau cross, made of a tree. (History of Germany, Ellis and Keller). The Romans took up the custom in retaliation. Crucifixion does not appear to be an Asiatic custom, IT BELONGED TO EUROPE.
As all Northern Europe...was under a theocratic Druid control before the conquering Romans took over, it is of grave importance that this regime be examined in some detail to get a full view of Christianity which took such a great part in the fall of the Roman Empire.
The Celtic Druids, by Godfrey Higgins, gives the best description of the Druids that may be found today. Caesar only gives a few passages to them. The same goes for other Roman writers. It is known that many Druid priests were gathered on an island together and murdered. It was something like a proscription or a pogrom. It was given out publicly that Druids were murdered by Romans all throughout northern Europe; but no instance is ever given of a Druid being captured or crucified in Rome. This is the inconsistency of History which this book will examine and expose.
If the Druid priests of Celtic Gaul and Britain were the leaders of those countries, what could be the name of their followers? What could be the religion of their followers? All that Rome tells us is that they were Barbarians--they name no creed or culture. They do, however, endeavor to belittle them, yet the actions, the purposes, the spirit and equanimity shows them to have been superior to their Roman conquerors. These "followers of the Druids" for lack of a better name, were the people who formed the structure of the Christian religion. Of the above there is no need to quote an authority...Once that thought has gained entrance or admission to examination, the evidence will fall into line with great rapidity, the evidence that the Celtic Druids were Christians and that whether or not there actually lived a Christ, Christianity existed before the time of the given date, and so many persecuted slaves were crucified that there could have been a thousand Christs. (continued)...
Today's church is still sacrificing human lives on the limbs of the World Tree (and offering their sons and daughters, as it is, to the Fires of Moloch--the Fires of War). It is the most that the World-church since the time of Christ, or their Druid counterparts before the time of Christ, could make of the oracles:
For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written: Cursed is everyone that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the Law to do them.
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree...(Galatians 3:10-13).
Psalm 22:11-22; Zechariah 12:10; 1 Corinthians 1:18-24; 1 Cor.2:1-16; Galatians 6:14-17.
Who is this man, accursed of God (Ezekiel 1:5; Acts 13:38), whose sins are worthy of death? whose Body must be taken down before the Sun sets at the end of the Day? It is plain to see in the oracles that Moses was alluding to the Universal Christ, the great Non-Violent Yajna-Sacrifice of the Vedas, who has come bearing in its Body both the good and the evil in the world, the sins of both the children of Light and the children of Darkness--which is why Western Christianity seems to other peoples of the world to be such a paradox, so full of goodness and so full of wickedness at the very same time. It is because both, the spirits of Cain and Abel, are coming to perfection in the same Mystery, at the same time, and now at the same place. Thus everyone must reconcile themselves to this reality before the Sun sets on the affairs of this age (at the time of the Evening sacrifice), and must absolutely remove their hands from matters of life and death, and especially from the execution of any living being--no matter what the reason. To think or to act otherwise is to align oneself with the very spirit of Antichrist itself. (Understand 2 Thessalonians, chapter 2).
...The immediate spiritual power of the Christians was no miracle. Although at first they were persecuted, and Peter and Paul may have been crucified, the resistance to the Romans was worldwide. The organization of the Church appears much too perfect to have been new. The physical organization of the Bishopric, the Elder, the Deacon, the Presbyter, the Church itself sprang into existence miraculously or else it was of previous invention. There is no Roman or Latin or Greek word for Church except Ecclesia. Church is North European, Kirk in Scotland, Kirka in Germany, Church in England. The Druids operated great Circles of which the vast monument in Stonehenge, England, is a physical instance. It was, and is, a Druid Circle, a "pierre druidque." A small circle of friends--of Christians--was the way the slaves kept their religion alive in Rome. "So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions" was written before there were any church buildings or organizations except the circle of persons who made up this surreptitious organization...
Again, in French the circlet was the "Anneau" as in our word Annual. Anna, the girl's name means grace or graceful, and the AN was the name of the Irish pre-historic church. The Celtic word for Ass is Ane (as in Anus) and the symbol of the Church was the ass. Ass and Ane or An, are realistically joined together in Josephus's story of the golden head of the ass held in the temple of An or On, or Heliopolis in Egypt.
Josephus halfway denies the story yet he infers that it may have been true. Jesus rides into Jerusalem on an ass, or symbolically the Druid Circle of the Year, and in Luke 2:36, Anna "spake of him to all who looked for redemption." A symbol of the Druid acceptance of Christ. The Rod of Mercury, by Henry Binkley Stein.
Ezekiel, Chapter 1; Malachi, chapter 4...(KJV)
"Within the cycle of the Year...the Church unfolds the whole mystery of Christ, not only from his incarnation and birth until his ascension, but also as reflected in the day of Pentecost, and the expectation of a blessed, hoped-for return of the Lord...The idea (upon which) all of this...imagery depends, is that Christ is 'the way, the truth, and the light.' He is the Sun of Justice, who, by rising, chases off the darkness. (Psalms 100, 103:20-23; 111:4). Just as Sunrise makes thieves and beasts seek their dens, so does the coming of Christ make sin and evil run and hide."
Which is what happens with images like the Vision of Ezekiel. Certainly, the Throne of God is not something that you're likely to encounter in your daily life. It is by nature unfamiliar to us. So, when Ezekiel was faced with the problem of illustrating the Throne of God, of giving his readers some idea of what it looked like and--more important--what it meant, he couched it in familiar terms. There was a Firmament, Ezekiel said; everybody would understand that, because Hebrew imagery consistently speaks of God enthroned above the Firmament...
To make his point clearer, Ezekiel says that the particular firmament he saw was held up by Four winged beasts rather than by poles and pillars: a man, a lion, an ox, and an eagle. Those beasts, blazing with heavenly light, are the symbol of Four of the Twelve signs of the Zodiak. The man is the constellation Aquarius, the lion is Leo, the ox is Taurus, and we now call the eagle Scorpio. If you want to use the starry sky to signify the everlasting Throne of God, you have to specify these Four constellations in particular (Revelation 5:4-7) because they are 'fixed;' when the Sun appears to be traveling through their sectors of the sky, you're in the middle of a definite season, and the weather is steady and fairly predictable. The other signs represent change of one kind or another..." From two chapters entitled The Sun of Justice and Outward Signs from a book on Roman Catholic theology whose main title and author's name I do not have with me at this time.
"The ancient Gauls had an idol under the name of (H)esus, who the mythologists say, answered to the Roman Mars, or Lord of hosts (see 2 Thessalonians 1:6-9), to whom they used to sacrifice their captives taken in wars; of whom Lucan, Book I, line 445, says, 'Hesus, with cruel altars, horrid god!'" The Diegesis, by Robert Taylor, p.217.
"Having shown that the cross was in common use before the time of Christ, by the continental nations of the world...The very learned Shedius (in his treatise de Mor. Germ. xxiv.) speaking of the Druids, confirms all that I have said. He writes that they seek studiously for an oak tree, large and handsome, growing up with two principle arms, in the form of a cross, besides the main stem upright...
The tree they consecrate in this manner. UPON THE RIGHT BRANCH THEY CUT IN THE BARK, WITH FAIR CHARACTERS, THE WORD HESUS: upon the middle or upright stem the word Taramis; upon the left branch Belenus; over this, Thau (the Tau of Ezekiel ix.4); under all, the same repeated Thau...
This is not all; but we have this Druid Hesus connected with and attached to a natural and not an artificial cross, so much nearer were the Druids to the worship of the true God--the God of Nature--than the Christian idolaters who bow in adoration before the carved crucifix.
WHO THEN, WAS THIS HESUS OF THE WEST, of whom Eunomius speaks? He was the savior of the Celtic and Gaullic Druids, for Hesus was a god especially venerated by the Gauls as their protector and preserver as Mr. Higgins says in the following words:
'The Gauls had a god named Hesus; was this from the Greek word zoo (or Zodiak), or the Hebrew word Iso, or both? In the Hebrew, if the e were preserved as the emphatic article the word would be literally The Preserver (or the Metatron). He was also often the Destroyer: in Gaul, Mars.' (See 2 Thessalonians 1:3-10; Isaiah 66:15,16; Psalm 18:1-10; Deuteronomy 32:39-42; Exodus 23:20-33).
We would suggest in reply to Mr. Higgins' question, that the word...was derived from the Phoenician word 'ies' or 'jes' which meant the Sun and nothing else (See Malachi. chapter 4)...We find then, that at the time of the Roman conquests of Britain, Germany, and Gaul, THAT THE DRUID GOD HESUS WAS A GREAT OBJECT OF WORSHIP THROUGHOUT THOSE VAST REGIONS OF THE WORLD." Antiquity Unveiled, by J. M. Roberts, p.372.
It is here that we discern the difference between John's doctrine of Christ and Paul's--between John"s baptism and Paul's (Acts 19:1-7. KJV). John baptised in the name of the Angel of Divine Presence, YHVH (or YHShWH...please see the previous chapter) while Paul taught the doctrine of the Sacrificial Hesus). We do not only discover the name Hesus (later rendered J-esus) affixed to the limbs of the Druid (Cosmic) Tree before the time of Christ, a mystery whose meanings were resurrected by Paul in the time of Christ, but taking the mystery in its entirety, and following it from East to West, we begin to at last sense the epic meanings of Paul's words:
For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto them that are saved it is the Power of God. (It is the spirit of active and intentional non-violence in the midst of not only violent men and a violent church, but in the Face of the judgments of God themselves).
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
(For through the wisdom of God itself), it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
But we preach Christ (the great Universal Non-Violent Sacrifice) crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, the Power of God and the Wisdom of God...(1 Corinthains 1:18-24).
Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect (see 1 John 4:17), yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world that come to nought.
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Which none of the princes (the leaders) of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory...(1 Corinthians 2:6-8).
Again, by the Lord of Glory Paul is not referring to any one single person named Jesus alone, but to the Divine Angel's presence in the sum of all living beings. And when he says: If the leaders of the world had known it... he means, if they had ever realized how this Angel of Divine Presence is the same who is born in every human birth and who also dies in every human death, they would have refrained throughout all their centuries from murder, execution, and from the very commission of human warfare itself. They would have refrained from even sitting in places of earthly authority, knowing how these seats have been reserved throughout this age for the children of Darkness. (We are referring to those who have performed these things in the name of the Lord, in violation of the precepts of the Lord. Matthew 20:25-28; 1 John 2:18,19. All others are the very Presence of the Lord Himself). And especially would they not have been caught sitting in these seats of authority at this time in history, wherein it is God's intention to rise up in the Presence all those other powers of the Earth--those that God has reserved for Himself against the Day of battle and war--and wherein it is also His intention to set up the throne of His own Anointed ones in the center of Europe. (Psalms 1, and 2; Daniel 2:44).
Standing aside with the children of Light, these great leaders might have been able to sense something of God's Terrible and Awful Presence emanating into human consciousness from the center of all these 20th century events. And perhaps, being able to see the power of United States of America in light of the words: Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (Revelation 13:4), they might also come to sense something of the Power of God's own Strong Right Arm in light of the words:
Put ye in the sickle for the harvest is ripe, come get ye down, for the press is full, the fats overflow, for their wickedness is great...(Joel 3:13).
The Remnant in every age has always fought against the inability in men to understand these things--being a remnant because, as Abel, they find no commandment, and possess no urge to take the life of any other human being, or to worship at the shrines of any nation on earth. Thus in all the unfolding events of our time the Spirit will answer the question: How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest the arm that hath no (political or military) strength? (Job 26:2). The Remnant, having no political power as we understand its use in the world--in the everyday, fallen sense of the word--must rely on the Word itself to accomplish its means; and having no means of delivering themselves, must rely on the Divine Presence to rise up and deliver them in the day of Judgment, and not simply themselves but the oppressed everywhere throughout the whole world. Thus Paul wrote:
To make all men see what is the Fellowship of the Mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ (Hesus of the West-Crishna of the East).
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the Church the manifold wisdom of God...(Ephesians 3:9,10).
Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: FOR MY NAME IS IN HIM...(Exodus 23:20-23).
Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
There went a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and Darkness was under his Feet.
AAnd he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the Wind (the Divne Kami Kazi)...(Psalm 18:7-11).
These things happened on the morning of September 11th, 2001. The battles of Armegeddon have begun. (Revelation 19:11-19).
Now if some believed that the name Jesus, the Greek , derived from Ies, a Phoenician name for the Sun, it is because the Sun, God's closest, and most Powerful sign of His Own Presence in the material world, provides both the Light and the Life of the whole human family. (John 1:9). It shines inside of us and outside of us, just as God resides both inside of the universe and outside of it. (The Gospel of Thomas 3). And then it is because the mystery of God's Presence in Christ is revealed in the motions of the Sun, from its rising in the East at the time of John the Baptist, to its setting in the West in our days, at the place named Endurance, or Victory, on the Tree of Life. Thus we saw in the preceding chapter, by tracing the course of the Mystery of the Sun of Righteousness across the hidden dimensions of the Oracle, how the Presence of God is revealed in the letters of the Holy Name,YHVH, and how the Name is transformed into the name YHWShWH, or Jehoshua. We now want to see how the name YHWShWH, or YHWShWA (see it in the Concordance to the KJV), Yod-Heh-Vaw-Shin-Vaw-Ayin, () transforms itself conceptually--in the same hieroglyphic and numerical way--into the Greek word, or (H)esus, Iesus..
The initial (H) in the name H-esus derives from the breathing sound of the Fifth Hebrew letter, Heh. It represents the sound of the Spirit who comes and goes as the Breath of God itself, the very same that is transmitted from one soul to another when one greets another with a "holy kiss." The letter also represents the Right Hand limb of the Tree, or the place numbered Five on the oracles of Life, upon which the Strong Right Arm of the Lord is revealed. The remainder of the word (H)esus derives from the sound of the word (or Jesus) itself.
The name Jesus in Greek letters
The name, or the word contains SIX letters (as does the word YHWShWA), which immediately carries our minds to the center of the Oracle, to where the Mystery of the SON radiates out upon the consciousness of the Western world. Seeing, however, that the sum of these Grecian letters is 888, they also connect our thought to the Eastern mysteries of Hermes-Mercurius-the Thrice-Majestic, which are fulfilled at last in the persons of Moses (Hermes), Paul (Mercurius ..Acts 14:12), and our own king Messiah(s) who shall appear at that place on the Tree of Life named Majesty in our time.
Both the Hebrew Yod (as in YHVH), and the Greek Iota are equal to the number 10. That the name was formulated by New Testament scribes (writing in Greek) in the same epic way as the name YHShWH was formulated in ancient times (as it is written, Beware of him, for My Name is in him... Exodus 23:20,21), is understood in the words:
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ , Who being in the form of God (on the limbs of the Cosmic World Tree) thought it not robbery to be equal with God.
But made himself of no reputation (by descending in this Name into the hearts and minds of the lowly in the earth), and took upon himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.
And being found in fashion as a man (see Hebrews 2:9-11; Heb.5:10-14), he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the Cross,
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.
That at the name of every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.
And that every tongue should confess that Jeusus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father...(Philippians 2:5-11).
Note the Greek number 6 (the letter Vau). It is used in only one verse of Scripture, Revelation 13:18.
Even the term , Theos, which is interpreted God the Father in the Greek scriptures, begins with the Greek letter Theta, which in turn derives from the 9th Hebrew-Phoenician letter Tet, . The Hebrew letter embodies the concept of Divine Unity and the coming together in One. We see it in the oracles of the Tree of Life where both sides of the Tree, the Male side and the Female side, Christian and Jew, come together in the Mystery of Christ:
For he is our peace, who hath made both One, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us.
Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments, contained in (literal) ordinances; for to make of himself of twain One New Man, so making peace.
That he might reconcile both unto God in One Body by the Cross, having slain (in himself) the enmity thereby...(Ephesians 2:14-16).
When, however, is this reconciliation accomplished? It has been accomplished in the lives of every soul, both male and female, Christian and Jew alike, who have ever entered into the inner spaces of the mystery of Christ-in-them. But the 8th Greek letter, Eta, , the second letter in the name , does not only connect both outer pillars of the Oracle to each other, it is a numerical indication of the time in history when it shall be accomplished to perfection. It will happen as the Messiahs are revealed at the 8th place on the Oracle named Majesty, and when all of those who "are still alive and remain" are joined to them at the 9th place on the Oracle named Foundation. (Please understand it in a work entitled The Discourse on the Eighth and the Ninth in the Nag Hammadi Library of books). The people-united will look back from this place together upon the entire epic and be able to observe with their own mind's eye the very Presence of God itself, alive in the grandeur and the majesty of Their own completed work. And when the judgments of this age are passed the people shall ascend together to Jerusalem, to that City which has descended out of the Mind of God on the Central Pillar of the Oracle to meet them. This City appears on the Oracle and in the Book of Revelation as a Cube inside of a Square:
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I saw the Holy City, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven, saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and God will dwell with them, and they shall be His (and Her) people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God...
And the City lieth Foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth; and he measured the City with a reed, twelve thousand furlongs, THE LENGTH AND THE BREADTH AND THE HEIGHT OF IT ARE EQUAL...(Revelation 21).
Our Messiahs, both of whom are revealed in the hieroglyphic name of DaViD, V, , are a married couple joined together in the Universal Mystery of Christ...whose throne shall be established forever at that same place, in the Center of the Tree of Life. (Zechariah 4).
And the House of DVD shall be as God, as the Angel of the Lord before them...(Zechariah 12:8).
It is a marriage of Reason and Emotion, the Mind and the Heart, Objectivity and Subjectivity (if we may employ such stereotypes in order to say that): if at any time in the future one tries to rise above the other there will be imbalance, and wrong judgment shall proceed until the balance (submission, reverence, understanding, respect--love) is restored. It is a marriage, of all things above to all things below...
Thus the last Four letters in the name , Sigma-Omicron-Upsilon-and Sigma again: The letter Sigma was not only employed to form the concept Syn, as in syn-thesis, syn-chronism, syn-od, syn-opsis, and syn-agogue, meaning a coming or putting together, but the letter itself was created by putting together the sound of the Hebrew letter Samek (S), and the shape of the Hebrew letter Shin, W. But then, because the ancient oracles from which the Greek letters are derived are to be laid on their side and studied from West to East, and East to West (Ezekiel 4:4-8), the letter Sigma was also laid on its side. . And then two Sigmas were designed into the name , one in front of the letters and , and the other behind, . One symbolizes the West, , and the other symbolizes the East, . And when the two Sigmas are placed facing each other, (in the same way as the two Cherubim are facing each other over the Ark, and as the letters in the name D.V.D. are found facing each other in the Oracle), we discover what is hidden between them. , .
From ancient Egypt in the East to modern Egypt in the West (Genesis 15:12-16; Revelation 11:8).
The letter Sigma is equivalent in Greek to the number 200, but when the two are joined together they are numerically equivalent to the Hebrew letter Taw, , or 400. Between the two we find the letter Upsilon, , which is also equivalent to 400, confirming again what we should find hidden there. The Upsilon is also similar in form to the Hebrew letter Vaw, . Both letters symbolize a merging of two ways, both ways leading to Yesod, or to the Foundation of this great Mystery, and from there to Malkhuth, and the words: Thy Kingdom come, on Earth as it is in Heaven. We can also also discern in these two letters "a parting of the ways," the ways of Light from the ways of Darkness for instance. The same can be sensed in the symbol of the great Mandala, , as it is written: Come up unto the Lord (Exodus 24:1), and: Out of Egypt have I called my Son. (Hosea 11:1; Matthew 2:15).
The number of years that the Son of man was made to lay upon his side totaled 430. (Ezekiel 4:4-8). The additional Thirty years further testify to the dimensions of the Mystery of Christ on the World Tree. = Beauty + Love + Power + Endurance + Majesty = 30, as it is also written: And himself began to be about THIRTY years of age...(Luke 3:23).
In the higher worlds one begets a child, not through physical procreation but through instruction. Thus the seed sown into Mary--that is, into the Waters of life, that is, into the Middle regions of the earth, that is, into the Soul of humanity, having grown up over time--day by day, season by season, year by year, jubilee by jubilee, century by century--finds its completion in the Great Circle of Genesis, , from the time of Adam to the time of Adam again. Thus the letter Omicron in the name (just as we find a Circle in the Hebrew name of Joshua):
The name Jehoshua...YHWShWA
I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and Last. Blessed are those that do his commandments, that they have a right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates of the City...(Revelation 22:14)...
, Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. In English it is A to Z, but in Hebrew it is Aleph to Zayin (1 to 7), and in Greek it is Aleph to Zeta (1 to 7). (Understand Jude 11 to 15)
AND THE LORD SPAKE UNTO THE FISH, AND IT VOMITED OUT JONAH UPON THE DRY LAND...(Jonah 2:10)
But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
For as Jonas was Three days and Three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be Three days and Three nights in the heart of the earth.
The men of Nin'e-vah shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here...(Matthew 12:39-41).
"And the Lord had prepared a great Fish to swallow up Jonah. Rabbi Tarphon said: That Fish was specially appointed from the Six days of Creation to swallow up Jonah...He entered its mouth just as a man enters a Great Synagogue, and he stood therein. The Two eyes of the Fish were like windows giving Light unto Jonah.
The Fish said to Jonah, dost thou not know that my day has arrived to be devoured by Leviathan? Jonah replied, Take me beside it and I will deliver thee and myself from its mouth.
Jonah said to the Fish, Behold, I have saved thee from Leviathan, show me what is in the Sea and in the depths.
The Fish showed Jonah the River called Ocean, the Red Sea through which Israel passed, the lowest Sheol (Hades), and the Navel of the Earth." The History of Jonah, The Chapters of Rabbi Eliezer the Great.
From the age of Pisces to the age of Aquarius, even so come Lord...
The six letters in the Divine Name join and connect each of the Ten sefirot of the Tree of Life, one to the other, as it is written: Which is his Body, the fullness of him that filleth All in All...(Ephesians 1:17-23).
Each letter is a complete thought, like a complete book, since they are letters written by the Unity...(The Gospel of Truth, The Nag Hammadi Library).
