Even as Nimrod
And Cush begat Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one in the earth.He was a mighty hunter (of souls) before the Lord, wherefore it is said EVEN AS NIMROD, the mighty hunter before the Lord...(Genesis 10:8-11).
Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler...(Proverbs 6:5).
Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
Our help is in the Name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth...(Psalm 124:6-8).
"Now it was Nimrod who excited them against God...He persuaded men to ascribe their strength and happiness to their own courage...He also gradually changed the government into tyranny (as is the American government today a subtle tyranny of both Liberalism and Conservatism, but nonetheless a police and military state)--seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into constant dependence upon his power. He also said he would be revenged on God, if He should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower (a national engine, and an economic structure) too high for the waters to reach, (and, of course, an army too powerful for God to destroy)...The multitude followed." Antiquities of the Jews I.IV.2.
The Seven Heads of the great World Serpent...Psalm 74:12-14.
And here is the mind that hath wisdom. The Seven heads are Seven mountains (Seven empires), on which the woman (World religion...Ezekiel 16) sitteth...
(They are 1, Egypt, whose borders extend from the West as far as the East and back again; 2, Assyria, whose borders also extend from the Garden of Eden to the East and back again, as does each of the other succeeding empires; 3, The realm of the Chaldeans, Babylon; 4, the kingdom of Persia; 5; the realm of the Grecians; 6, the Roman Empire; and 7, the Holy Roman Empire, whose seat of Power was established right down on top of the City of David itself).
And there are Seven kings (Seven rulers, all springing from the one primary archetype, Nimrod): Five are fallen, (Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Media-Persia, and Greece), one is, (as these words were being written--Rome), and the other (the Seventh empire) is not yet come; and when he (Napoleon, who trod right over the Seventh World-empire) cometh, he must contiinue a short space.
And the beast that was, (the king of Babylon...see Daniel 4:10-25), and is not (at that present time), EVEN HE IS AN EIGHTH, AND IS OF THE SEVEN, and goeth into perdition...(Revelation 17:8-11).
America is the eighth of these world empires to conscript the oracles of God, as well as the people of God, into its own service. Thus the words:
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, (out of the spirit of Cain) he walketh through dry places (with the children of Light), seeking rest, and findeth none.
Then saith he, I will return unto mine house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished, (with all the possibilities for a new beginning).
Then goeth he, and taketh with himself Seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: AND THE LAST STATE OF THAT MAN IS WORSE THAN THE FIRST. Even so shall it be to this wicked generation...(Matthew 12:43-45).
The gods first deprive of his reason that man unto whom they ultimately send disgrace and defeat. Sanjaya, the Mahabrattah.
"Like the Pleromas (the fulness of all things, all powers, and every principality in the earth) are the things which came into being from the arrogant thought...They thought of themselves that they are beings existing by themselves and are without a source, since they do not see anything else existing before them. Therefore they lived in disobedience (and) acts of rebellion, without having humbled themselves before the One because of whom they came into being.
They wanted to command one another, (contrary to the teachings of the Holy One...Matthew 20:25-28), overcoming one another in their vain ambitions, while the glory which they possess contains a cause of the system which was to be, (which was fated to come in the last days).
They are likenesses of the things which are exalted. They were brought to a lust for power in each one of them, according to the greatness of the name of which each is a shadow, each one imagining that it is superior to his fellows...Therefore, it happened that many offspring came forth from them, as fighters, as warriors, as troublemakers, as apostates. They are disobedient beings, lovers of power. All the other beings of this sort were brought forth from these." The Tripartite Tractate, The Nag Hammadi Library, p.74.
"The rulers thought that it was by their own power and will that they were doing what they did, but the Holy Spirit in secret was accomplishing everything through them as it wished. Truth, which existed since the beginning, is sown everywhere. And many see it being sown, but few are they who see it being reaped." The Gospel of Philip, The Nag Hammadi Library, p.143.
Deliver me O Lord from the evil man, preserve me from the violent man,
Which imagine mischief in their hearts, continually they are gathered for war.
They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips...(Psalm 140:1-3).
And She (the Divine Mother in the heart of all of Her children) being with Child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered...
And the Dragon (the antichrist and all his agents) stood before the Woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour Her child as soon as it was born...
And the Serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the Woman, that He might cause Her to be carried away of the flood...(Revelation 12:2, 4, 15).
When the waves of death compassed me, the floods (the wars) of ungodly men made me afraid...(2 Samuel 22:5).
For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause...(Psalm 109:2,3).
And the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined...(Daniel 9:26).
