Mystery Babylon Exposed

  NOAH’S ARK

The ark came to rest on the highest mountain in the area – we can determine that with scripture.
Gen 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
Gen 8:5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
It was about 2 1/2 months before the tops of other mountains were seen.
This would have made the ark landing site the highest mountain in the area.

 

Mount Ararat in Turkey qualifies in that respect
Legend and folklore has it that this mountain was the location of the ark landing. Noah and his family, 8 people, began their new life in ancient Turkey. I would guess that after the animals were released the ark would have made for a nice starter home. This is important to realize because with just 8 people on earth they would have stayed together in the area of the ark. Noah planted a vineyard soon after exiting the ark. Civilization began again from the area we know as Turkey/Armenia. Noah, his sons, and their wives started in Turkey.
Noah’s grandsons names are very familar to students of prophecy. The book of Ezekiel names the lands of these offspring as part of the invaders who align under Gog in Eze 38.
Gen 10:1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
 
Gen 10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
 
Gen 10:3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
 
Gen 10:4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
 
Gen 10:5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
 
Gen 10:6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
 
Gen 10:7 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.
 
Gen 10:8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
Gomer, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Togarmah, Tarshish, Kittim, Sheba, Dedan; they are all mentioned in prophetic text. They are all also grandsons and great grandson of Noah, who was still alive during their lives. They would have settled in the immediate area of the ark where their fathers and grandfathers lived. This is important because the nations that bear their names are nations attacking Israel in Eze 38.
Gen 11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
Gen 11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
If they journeyed from the east then they were heading west. Draw a line west from Mt. Ararat and you run into a great plain called Anatolia.
Gen 11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
In Genesis we find the Ark on Mt Ararat and man slowly migrating west and then southward from the ark. They most likely followed the Murat river to the Euphrates river. That means they traveled west from Mount Ararat!! That is an important fact in understanding where the city of UR was located.  They traveled to the land of Harran;   Harran; Hebrew Haran; (Strong’s 02039) name of the place to which Abraham migrated from
 UR
Ur of the Chaldees and where the descendants of Abraham’s brother Nahor established themselves; probably located in Mesopotamia, in Padanaram, the cultivated district at the foot of the hills between the Khabour and the Euphrates below Mount Masius.
Ur; called Urfa, is in southeastern Turkey, former capital of ancient Osrhoene. It is situated on a limestone ridge, an
extension of the ancient Mount Masius in the Taurus mountains of southern Anatolia (Turkey)
 Where were these Chaldeans from?
The evidence shows that their homeland included the area of south central Turkey because inscriptions have been found which tell that both Nebuchadnezzar (2nd king of the Chaldean empire) and Nabonidus (last king of the empire whose son, Belshazzar, was co-regent in Babylon) built temples to “Sin”, the moon-god in HARRAN. Inscriptions also show that Nabonidus and his mother were both FROM Harran. The term “Chaldees”- the Urartuans or those from the greater Ararat region, called their collection of gods “khaldis” and their supreme god Khaldi.
“Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor, the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, (Luke 3:34)
“When Terah had lived seventy years, he became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran.”
Harran was also the home of Laban and Jacob spent 20 years in Haran working for his uncle Laban. The time of Jacob’s trouble refer to the years he had to work to gain Rachel as his wife.
Archaeologists have found that most of the names of his ancestors of his genealogy were names of cities. These names are present in southern Turkey.
Town names of Harran, Nahor, Serug, and Terah
Abram’s kin settled in Syrio-Mesopotamia region between the upper Euphrates and Habur rivers near Urfa Haran (Gen 11:31), Abram (Old Assyrian text Abrum) whose father was Terah, (Til-Sa-Turahi, “Mound of Terah,” Neo-Assyrian text), grandfather Nahor, as is his brother, whose name is from Old Assyrian and Old Babylonian texts Til-Nakhiri (the “Mound of Nahor”, Neo-Assyrian text) and great-grandfather Serug, Sarugi, Neo-Assyrian text) . Peleg recalls later Paliga on the Euphrates just above the mouth of the Habur.  These are place-names referring to sites in the plain of Harran.
 

About 3,900 years before the birth of Messiah, Noah’s great grandson, Nimrod built the Tower of Babel

(Genesis 10:10, 11:9). 

Nimrod married his mother Semiramis, and together, they built the Babylonian Empire which combined their pagan religion with their form of government. They worshiped the stars, sun, and the moon, and they sacrificed their babies to Molech. Noah’s son Shem was so angry about this, that he had Nimrod killed and his body parts were delivered to different provinces within Babylon as a warning to those who worshiped Molech aka Satan.

Nimrod’s wife/mother wanted to keep this false pagan religion alive in order to keep the money coming in. She consulted her astrologers who told her that on December 22nd the sun is the furthest away from the earth, but on December 25th, the sun is “born again.” This is known as the “winter solstice” in paganism. Semiramis became pregnant on March 25th (Easter/Ishtar), which is called the spring equinox in paganism. She told the Babylonian people that Nimrod was the god of the sun, and that he impregnated her, with the rays of the sun.

Exactly 9 months later on December 25th, she gave birth to a son and named him Tammuz. She told the Babylonians that Tammuz was a reincarnation of Nimrod the “sun god” born on December 25th and that she was the “goddess of the moon” or the “Queen of Heaven.” Today the Roman Catholic Church officially named “Mary/Miriam” (the mother of Jesus/Yahu’shua) “Queen of Heaven” after this pagan fertility goddess.

Semiramis ordered the Babylonians to go into the forest and cut down a tree and decorate it with little balls (which were meant to be Nimrod’s testicles) to commemorate Nimrod who was “cut down” like a tree. Elohim (God) hates this practice which is why he warned the children of Israel not to learn this custom from the pagans.

Jeremiah 10:

1 Hear ye the word which YHWH speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

2 Thus saith YHWH, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; (astrology) for the heathen are dismayed at them.

3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers that it move not.

And today, Christ Mass trees are erected supposedly in the name of Jesus, but this practice was started long before Yahu’shua (Jesus) ever came to earth. Did YHWH change his mind now? No, he still hates it and he says“learn NOT the ways of the heathen…”

 

YHWH rebuked the children of Israel for worshiping this Queen of Heaven who is called by various names i.e. Venus, Isis, Diana, Aphrodite, Ishtar, Easter, Astoreth, Catholic “Mary” etc.

Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.
Pictured above is the Universal Mother goddess known as “The Queen of Heaven” (Semiramis) holding her baby son Tammuz born December 25th. Should we assimilate our Messiah to this pagan deity?
 Listen to what YHWH says about it: 
 Deuteronomy 12: 
 29 When YHWH your Elohim cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land,
 30 take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ ; for every abomination to YHWH which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.
31 You shall not worship YHWH your Elohim in that way
Did you get this? Let me paraphrase what Yah is saying: “Don’t learn to worship me the same way that the heathen nations worship their gods and then say that you are doing it for me—-it is an abomination!”
To those who would say: “We can take back the pagan holidays for Jesus” or to those who would say “Let’s put Christ back in Christmas…” He does not have any affiliation to Christmas and he never did. There is a very sinister reason behind why December 25th was chosen as the alleged birthday of our Messiah. The Papacy in 538 A.D. made Christmas official Roman Catholic Doctrine for no other reason than to have political correctness with the pagans.
Trying to put our beloved Messiah into “Christmas” is like erecting a life size statue of your ex-lover’s private parts right in front of your spouse at the foot of your marriage bed and then saying “honey look what I made for you….”
YHWH hates the fact that his backsliding whoring wife Israel went after her Ba’als and today he sees the Christian Church doing the identical thing and he wants these reminders out of his face!

 

Pictured here are all of the many “Christs” or false Messiah’s since the days of Nimrod, and they are all reincarnated on December 25th and crucified on March 25th (Ishtar/Easter).

 YHWH is telling us that he does not want us to worship him the same way that the pagans worship their gods and then say “we are doing it for you, Jesus”  he says this is an abomination!
 YHWH was also very angry with the children of Israel for worshiping this pagan sun god named Tammuz born December 25th:
 Ezekiel 8: 5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.
14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of YHWH’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
16 And he brought me into the inner court of YHWH’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of YHWH, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of YHWH, and their faces toward the east; and they worshiped the sun toward the east.

 

This very same Babylonian religion originated at the Tower of Babel, and was carried over into other cultures under different names. In Egypt she was known as Isis, Queen of Heaven and Tammuz was known as Horus. Nimrod was known as Seb.

 The Egyptian priests placed these initials I H S of the pagan trinity (Isis, Horus & Seb) on a round wafer to commemorate the sun god and they ate it each year on December 25th believing that the sun god was being reincarnated in them as they ate this wafer god. They re-enacted the death of Nimrod on a “tree” on March 25th (Easter) and believed he would be reincarnated on December 25th. This re-enactment was called a “Mass” or Massacre.
 Today, these same initials of I H S appear on the Catholic Eucharist Wafer. The Catholic Catechism teaches that the priest has the power to pull Christ down from his throne and crucify him again and again at each Mass. The Catechism states concerning Christ:
 “At each mass, he performs the function of the victim a new…”
Dagon: A major god of the once-seafaring Phillistines, Dagon is generally represented as a muscular, bearded man with the lower body of a great fish. He is referred to as a deity 10 times in seven verses (Judges 16:231 Samuel 5:21 Samuel 5:31 Samuel 5:41 Samuel 5:51 Samuel 5:71 Chronicles 10:10), and twice more in two verses as part of place names that may have been named for him (Joshua 15:41Joshua 19:27), all in the Old Testament. Judges 16:23: “Now the rulers of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to celebrate, saying, ‘Our god has delivered Samson, our enemy, into our hands.'”

“foreign gods”: Unnamed foreign gods are referred to early in the Bible, not long after the first reference to similarly unnamed “household gods,” in Genesis 35:2: “So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, ‘Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes.'”

“gods of Egypt”: References to Egypt appear beginning in the the book of Genesis, but its as-yet unnamed deities are not mentioned until Exodus 12:12: “‘On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD.'”

Tammuz: A Sumerian god of fertility and vegetation who, as the length of days grew shorter after the Summer Solstice, was mourned by his followers as his influence over the world waned. He was adopted by the Greeks as Adonis and is believed by some to have been worshipped at the sport where the Church of the Nativity would eventually be established. He is mentioned just once in the Bible, in the Old Testament Book of Ezekiel. Ezekiel 8:14: “Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of the LORD, and I saw women sitting there, mourning the god Tammuz.”

 The Origins of the Fish Head Mitre Hat

 

We will see where the Pope and the Catholic Bishop’s Mitre has it´s origins from:
“Adapa was a mortal from a godly lineage, a son of Ea (Enki in Sumerian), the god of wisdom and of the ancient city of Eridu, who brought the arts of civilization to that city (from Dilmun, according to some versions).”
“Adapa is often identified as advisor to the mythical first king of Eridu, Alulim. In addition to his advisory duties, he served as a priest and exorcist, and upon his death took his place among the Seven Sages or Apkall?. (Apkallu, “sage”, comes from Sumerian AB.GAL (Ab=water, Gal=Great) a reference to Adapa, the first sage’s association with water.)”

 

“it is now known that the name is the Greek form of the Babylonian Uanna (or Uan) a name used for Adapa in texts from the Library of Ashurbanipal.”
-Source: K. van der Toorn, Bob Becking, Pieter Willem van der Horst: Dictionary of deities and demons in the Bible Edition 2, revised, B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1999
“Adapa -son of Ea, priest in Eridu. Also known as Uan (Oannes), the first of the Seven Sages, who brought the arts and skills of civilization to mankind.”  
(p. 317. “Glossary of Deities…Adapa.” Stephanie Dalley. Myths From Mesopotamia: Creation, The Flood, Gilgamesh, And Others. New York & Oxford. Oxford University Press. 1991)

 

Adapa is Oannes and one of the Seven “Sages” called Apkallu:
 
The Apkallu (Akkadian) or Abgal, (Sumerian) are seven Sumerian demigods said to have been created by the god Enki (Akkadian: Ea) to give civilization to mankind. They served as priests of Enki and as advisors or sages to the earliest “kings” or rulers of Sumeria before the flood. They are credited with giving mankind the Me (moral code), the crafts, and the arts.
They were seen as fish-like men who emerged from the sweet water Apsu. They are commonly represented as having the lower torso of a fish, or dressed as a fish. They have also been depicted with wings, having either a human head or an eagle’s head.
Fish-men figurines, the so-called “seven sages”  (apkallu), sun-dried clay, from the foundations of a priest’s house in Asshur ca. 721-705 BCE (p. 18. Jeremy Black and Anthony Green. Gods, Demons and Symbols of Ancient Mesopotamia, An Illustrated Dictionary. London, British Museum, in association with the University of Texas Press. Austin. 1992. ISBN 0-292-70794-0. paperback).
Adapa (one of the Apkallu) was the son of Ea (Enki) the Sumerian Fish God
Enki was the patron God of the city of Eridu, the City of Eridu was founded by Nimrod.
“David Rohl (an Egyptologist), like Alexander Hislop, identified Nimrod with a complex of Mediterranean deities; among those he picked were Asar, Baal, Dumuzi and Osiris. In Rohl’s theory, Enmerkar the founder of Uruk was the original inspiration for Nimrod, because the story of Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta bears a few similarities to the legend of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, and because the -KAR in Enmerkar means “hunter”. Additionally, Enmerkar is said to have had ziggurats built in both Uruk and Eridu, which Rohl postulates was the site of the original Babel. Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta is a legendary Sumerian account, of preserved, early post-Sumerian copies, composed in the Neo-Sumerian period (ca. 21st century BC). It is one of a series of accounts describing the conflicts between Enmerkar, king of Unug-Kulaba (Uruk), and the unnamed king of Aratta (probably somewhere in modern Iran or Armenia). It is also notable for its strong parallels to the Tower of Babel narrative of Genesis.”
Enki is just another form of Nimrod, son of Cush, grandson of Ham, and great-grandson of Noah; and as “a mighty one on the earth” and “a mighty hunter before God”. This is repeated in First Book of Chronicles and the “Land of Nimrod”, used as a synonym for Assyria, is mentioned in the Book of Micah.
“Nimrod figures in some very early versions of the history of Freemasonry, where he was said to have been one of the fraternity’s founders. According to the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry: The legend of the Craft in the Old Constitutions refers to Nimrod as one of the founders of Masonry. Thus in the York MS., No. 1, we read: “At ye making of ye toure of Babell there was a Masonrie first much esteemed of, and the King of Babilon yt called Nimrod was a Mason himself and loved well Masons.” However, he does not figure in the current rituals.”
Priests in Fish robes were still prevalent even after Sumeria here are some examples: 
(picture cf. p. 15. figure 7. “Fish Gods at the Tree pf Life; Assyria, c. 700 BC.” Joseph Campbell. The Masks of God: Creative Mythology. New York. Viking Penguin. 1968. Reprinted 1976)
Fish-garbed priest bas-relief on temple of the god Ninurta (Saturn) at Kalhu (biblical Calah), ca. 883-859 BCE Assurnasirpal II (p. 83. fig. 65. “fish-garbed figure.” Anthony Green. Gods, Demons and Symbols of Ancient Mesopotamia, An Illustrated Dictionary. London, British Museum, in association with the University of Texas Press. Austin. 1992. ISBN 0-292-70794-0. paperback).
 More Fish Symbolism
Dagon is crowned. Vatican keys(3-trinity) 3 arched fish(trinity) black cross
Vesica Piscis (2 circles put together to form a fish shape)
“666 is the length of a vesica, whose width is  384, or the sun’s radius measured by the tone.   If the Greek numerals from one to ten be arranged so as to correspond to the cabalistic steps and their numerical vavlues computed, we find that  EIS 215,  DUO,  474.  TREIS,  615, yield  1,304,  which is one less than the length of a vesica which will contain a circle having a circumference of 2,368, and this triad represents the three steps of the Macrocosm”

The Pope wears a “Ring of the Fisherman” mocking
Mark 1:17 
“About the very time when the Bishop of Rome was invested with the pagan title of Pontifex, the Saviour began to be called ICHTHUS, of ‘THE FISH’, thereby identifying him with DAGON.” (Hislop, p. 215) “The two-horned mitre, which the Pope wears…is the very mitre worn by DAGON.”
(Hislop, p. 215)
“The two-horned mitre, which the Pope wears,  when he sits on the high altar at Rome
and receives the adoration of the Cardinals, is the very mitre worn by the priests of Dagon,
the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians.” – The Two Babylons ; Alexander Hislop;  p. 215
“Mr. A. Trimen, a distinguished London  architect and author, found that on a
certain occasion every year the Chinese  Emperor, as Pontifex Maximus of his nation,
wears a mitre which is the very counterpart  of the Papal mitre.”
-(Hager, on Chinese Hieroglyphics,  B. xxxv, in the British Museum)

Even the “Chinese” Pope Wears  The Dagon Mitre Hat.
“In Babylon there was “Oannes” a fish god who imparted great knowledge to the people.
He taught them how to build cities. He also taught them math and geometric laws, and was
credited with giving them all the knowledge that they would ever receive.  At night,
he would go back into the sea to spend the night, because he was amphibious.  He had
the head of a man; covered by the head of a fish, and had the legs and feet of a man
and the torso of a man, but was covered by  the scales and tail of a fish. ”
-Berossus; from ancient fragments  (Isaac Preston Cory)
DAGON or OANNES – “He would go back into the sea to spend the night, because he
was amphibious.  He had the head of a man;  covered by the head of a fish, and had the
legs and feet of a man and the torso of a  man, but was covered by the scales and
tail of a fish. ” -Berossus; from ancient fragments (Isaac Preston Cory)
“The great apostate church of the Gospel Age, true to its Babylonish origin, has actually
adopted this fish god in its ritual; for the pope on certain occasions manifests by his
head gear that he is the direct representative of Dagon. As it was an indispensable rule in
all idolatrous religions that the high priest  should wear the insignia of the god that he
worshipped, so the sculptures discovered by Layard show that the priests of Dagon were
arrayed in clothing resembling fish. This is probably the “strange apparel” referred to
in Zeph. 1:8. Berosus tells us that in the  image of Dagon the head of the man appeared
under the head of the fish, while Layard  points out that in the case of the priests
“the head of the fish formed a mitre above  that of the man, while its scaly, fan-like
tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the  human limbs and feet exposed.”
(Babylon and Nineveh, p. 343)

“In the ancient legends of the Babylonians there was “Oannes” called “Lord of the Waves”.
He was amphibious, having the torso and head of a man but upon his head was the head of a
fish – with gaping mouth and draping downward were the back of the fish, complete with scales
and tail.  The Sumerians called him “EA” and  like Oannes – he was half fish and half man.
He was called the great Fish of heaven.  The Philistines called him “DAGON”, the fish god
that is also mentioned in the Bible.” -OANNES; part II
Vladimir Pakhomov taken from a history of Mesopotamia
Written in the 3rd Century BC by Berossus; A Babylonian Priest

The priests of Dagon wore the same mitre hat that was worn by “Cybele”.
It looked like the open mouth of a fish – propped upon the priest’s head.

“He was half fish and half man. He was called the great Fish of heaven.
The Philistines called him “DAGON”, the fish god that is also mentioned
in the Bible.” -OANNES; part II Vladimir Pakhomov
taken from a history of Mesopotamia Written in the 3rd Century BC
by Berossus; A Babylonian Priest”

The mitre on the head of the goddess Cybele is striking similarity to the ‘fish head’ of the God Dagon. The Great Goddess of Asia Minor is the oldest true Goddess known, predating the Goddesses of the Sumerian and Egyptians by at least 5,000 years. Cybele was worshipped in Rome and was also called the “Magna Mater”, or the great queen mother goddess, which evolved into Catholic Mariology. The priesthood of Cybele was composed of castrated males, which parallels the celibate priesthood of Catholicism. 

DAGON is mentioned in the Bible in at least 8 places –

Joshua 19:27
Judges 16:23
1Samuel 5:2,3,4,5,7
1Chronicles 10:10

“Now the rulers of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god….”
(Judges 16:23)(NIV)-BibleGateway

“And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it into the house of Dagon,
and set it by Dagon. And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold,
Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of Jehovah;
and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands lay cut off upon
the threshold; only the stump of  Dagon was left to him.”
(1Samuel 5:2,4)(ASV)-BibleGateway

“On that day I will punish those who worship Dagon…..On that day,says the
Lord, a cry will be heard at the Fish Gate. I will punish those who are satisfied
with themselves, who think, ‘The Lord won’t help us or punish us.’ The Lord’s day of
judging is coming soon; it is near and coming fast. The cry will be very sad
on the day of the Lord; even soldiers will cry.”
(Zephaniah 1:9,10,14)(NCV) – Bible Gateway

The “DAGON” Mitre Hat of Christendom

z45596491

“The two-horned mitre, which the Pope wears, when he sits on the high altar at Rome
and receives the adoration of the Cardinals, is the very mitre worn by the priests of Dagon,
the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians.” – The Two Babylons ; Alexander Hislop;  p. 215

Notice in the comparison pictures above that the ancient Priest of the Fish-God “Dagon”
is wearing a fish robe – with the Fish’s head being placed directly upon the priest’s
own head.  The opened mouth of the fish looks exactly as the “mitre” hat of the pope with
the mouth Opened.

Not only does the pope wear this “Mitre” hat, but so do the Cardinals on certain occasions
when they are dressed in their royal regalia.

The Mystery religion of ancient Babylon / Assyria, was noted for the priestly class of “Dagon” in
much the same way that the “Mystery” religion of Rome has copied it.

“One need only look at Christianity to see  the Fish tradition! It’s under everyone’s nose.
The real Priests of Dagon of old wore a Mitre  headdress and the Catholic religion uses
this same design on their papal headdress!”
According to Egyptian mythology,  when the judges found Osiris [Nimrod]
guilty of corrupting the religion of Adam  and cut up his body, they threw the parts
into the Nile. It was said that a fish ate  one of these chunks and became transformed.
Later, Isis [Semiramis] was fishing along  the river bank when she fished up a half-man,
half-fish. This sea creature was  Dagon,  the reincarnated Nimrod.
And Dagon is the representation of Nimrod (of ancient Babylon) resurrecting out of the
ocean depths as a half-man, half-fish.
“Dagon is the diminutive of dag, and signifies… fish…The Babylonians
believed that a being, part man and  part fish, emerged from the Erythraean
Sea,  and appeared in Babylonia  in the early days of its history…
Representations of this fish-god  have been found among the sculptures
of Nineveh.  The Philistine Dagon was of a similar character.”
 FISH ON FRIDAYS?

The worship of Dagon also affected  people’s eating habits.

This may explain the mystery of why the Catholics abstain from eating fish
on all days except Fridays.  Whether they realize it or not,
they are practicing the ancient pagan rite of worshipping Dagon.

According to The Catholic Encyclopedia:

“As to the ritual of his worship…  we only know from ancient writers that,
for religious reasons, most of the Syrian peoples abstained from eating fish, a practice that
one is naturally inclined to connect with  the worship of a fish-god.”
– The Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913, Encyclopedia Press, Inc

 

The coat of arms of Cardinal Ratzinger

Pope Benedict XVI has included his old Bavarian homeland in the papal coat of arms.

All of the elements in the episcopal coat of arms that Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger bore as Archbishop of Munich and Freising and then as the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith have become part of his papal coat of arms as well.

All papal coat of arms (except that for the very first of Calixtus II, which has not been a real coat of arms in this sense) have the following four basic components:

1. The tiara (triple crown of the popes)
2. The keys of “Peter”
3. The red string that connects the keys
4. The shield with the symbols of each pope (an expression of his intentions and policies).

Mind you, all the papal coat of arms since 1198 have these ingredients! Now, Cardinal Ratzinger, a Bavarian (district of Germany), is elected Pope, a harmless gray-haired man … Suddenly everything changes all at once.

New in the Coat of Arms: The Pallium

The second thing that catches your eye, is that a new component was added to the coat of arms: the pallium, the white woolen stole with three Maltese crosses at the bottom of the shield that recently have changed their color from black to red.

Origins & History of the Pope’s Crowns

The history of the crown predates Pope Clement V in 1314, although he was the first Pope was the first to wear the triple tiara when a third crown and lappets (cloth strips) were added.
According to James-Charles Noonan3 the bottom of the three crowns appeared at the base of the mitre in the ninth century. When the popes assumed temporal power in the Patrimony of St. Peter (known generally as the Papal States), the base crown became decorated with jewels to resemble the crowns of princes. A second crown was added by Boniface VIII in 1298 to symbolize spiritual dominion. Very soon after, in or around 1314, a third crown and lappets (cloth strips) were added; Pope Clement V was the first to wear the triple tiara.

Though a powerful symbol of the papacy, it has not always been respected even by its wearers. One mediæval pope, Innocent VIII, even pawned off his papal tiara.

A Protestant theory is that the three crowns (triregnos) fulfilled Daniel’s prophecy in the seventh chapter of his book in which the “little horn” of the Roman Papacy uproots three kingdoms before it.

 Design of the Triple Tiara

 

Almost all surviving Triple Tiaras are shaped similarly, in the form of a circular beehive, with its central core made of silver. Within that one shape, a number of variations occurred; some were sharply conical, others bulbous. All tiaras but the final one were heavily covered in jewels. Each tiara was structured in the form of three crowns marked by golden decorations, sometimes in the form of crosses, sometimes in the shape of leaves. Most were topped off by a crucifix. The tiara of Pope Gregory XVI (given to him in 1834) involved three golden circles inlaid with diamonds over the central silver core of the crown, above each of which a series of golden ‘clover’ shapes, inlaid with jewels. (See photograph opposite of Pope Pius X wearing that tiara.) In contrast the ‘Belgian’ tiara given to Pope Pius IX in 1871 had its conical shape almost hidden beneath three layers of upright golden decoration inlaid with jewels, making it the most unusual (and perhaps for that reason least worn) tiara in the papal collection. (The picture below of Pius XI shows him wearing what appears to be the ‘Belgian Tiara’.) It was made in Bourdon, Ghent (Belgium) from a design by Jean Baptiste Bethume. It is decorated with gold, pearls, gilt silver, emeralds, enamel and precious stones.

The tiara given to Pope Pius IX in 1877 by the Vatican’s Palatine Honour guard in honour of his Jubilee is strikingly similar in design to the earlier tiara of Gregory XVI. It remained a particularly popular crown, worn by among others Pope Pius XI, Pope Pius XII (who was crowned with it) and Pope John XXIII. Pope Leo XIII’s crown, in contrast was much less decorated and much more conical in shape. John XXIII is pictured wearing it below. Apart from the odd looking Belgian Tiara of 1871, two other unusual tiaras exist. One was made for Pope Paul VI in 1963. (A photograph of his coronation is reproduced below.) Shaped like a cross between a beehive and a bullet, and made of silver, it contained few jewels, making it considerably lighter than earlier tiaras. The three tiers were represented simply by three circles at points running around the exterior. Another is the papier-mâché tiara

 Symbolism of the Triple Tiara


Just what the three crowns of the Triple Tiara symbolise is disputed. Some have linked it to the threefold authority of the Supreme Pontiff: Universal Pastor (top), Universal Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction (middle) and Temporal Power (bottom). Others have given a spiritual interpretation, the three-fold office of Christ, who is Priest, Prophet and King. Other theories suggest the three crowns refer to the ‘Church Militant on earth’, the ‘Church Suffering after death and before heaven’, and the ‘Church Triumphant in eternal reward’. Yet another theory suggests they represent the Pope’s roles as lawgiver, judge and teacher. When popes were crowned, the words ‘Father of princes and kings, Ruler of the world, Vicar of our Saviour Jesus Christ’ were used, perhaps indicating the definitive meaning of the three crowns, though there is no evidence that that coronation oath is based on the originally intended meaning attached to the three tier tiara.

666 a tremendous amount has been written about the Bible’s one and only reference to the mysterious number “666.” In most manuscripts of the New Testament and in English translations of the Bible, the number of the Beast is 666. There is one case that I’m sure most christian especially the catholic church disagree where the number of the Beast could be found and translated in the surrounding of the papal tiara involves the claim that the words Vicarius Filii Dei exist on the side of one of the tiaras.

Figure below shows the value translated from roman numerals.

Vicarius Filii Dei exist on the side of one of the Catholic Pope tiaras.

The translation would be offensive to those who has a high respect of the Pope of the Catholic Church but worth a think and ponder if this true or not.

This may well be the origin of the triple-tiered papal tiara as claimed by the Catholic Encyclopedia.

Pine Cone

The oak, the pine, the ash, the cypress, and the palm are the five trees of greatest symbolic importance. The Father God of the Mysteries was often worshiped under the form of an oak; the Savior God–frequently the World Martyr–in the form of a pine; the world axis and the divine nature in humanity in the form of an ash; the goddesses, or maternal principle, in the form of a cypress; and the positive pole of generation in the form of the inflorescence of the mate date palm. The pine cone is a phallic symbol of remote antiquity. The thyrsus of Bacchus–a long wand or staff surmounted by a pine cone or cluster of grapes and entwined with ivy or grape-vine leaves, sometimes ribbons–signifies that the wonders of Nature may only be accomplished by the aid of solar virility, as symbolized by the cone or grapes.

This pine cone staff in the Egyptian Museum Turino, Italy is a symbol of the solar god Osiris and originated in Egypt where he was their messiah who died for his people and whose Mother, Isis, was worshipped as the Virgin Mother. Osiris was the Egyptian counterfeit of Jesus Christ. The pine cone on the tree of life, slowly ripens the conifer’s female seeds, and in the later stages the cone opens up to release its mature seeds. This process symbolizes the seeding effect on other people and culture together with the expansion of consciousness.

The thyrsus of Bacchus–a long wand or staff surmounted by a pine cone or cluster of grapes and entwined with ivy or grape-vine leaves, sometimes ribbons–signifies that the wonders of Nature may only be accomplished by the aid of solar virility, as symbolized by the cone or grapes. In the Phrygian Mysteries, Atys–the ever-present sun-savior–dies under the branches of the pine tree (an allusion to the solar globe at the winter solstice) and for this reason the pine tree was sacred to his cult. This tree was also sacred in the Mysteries of Dionysos and Apollo.

In Greek Mythology, a thyrsus or thyrsos  was a staff of giant fennel (Ferula communis) covered with ivy vines and leaves, sometimes wound with taeniae and always topped with a pine cone.

Assyrian winged god with pine cone, representing power of regeneration, traceable to Tammuz of Babylon. Most paganism in history is traceable back to Tammuz of Babylon. His mother Semiramis, was the first Virgin Mother predating the birth of Jesus Christ by over a 1000 years. The Catholic practice of making the Sign of the Cross originated in Babylon as people paid homage to their messiah, Tammuz, who “died for the good of his people.” There love was demonstrated for Tammuz by making the sign of the “T.” Satan has transferred this sign for Tammuz into the Catholic Church, as they think they are making the sign of the Christian cross. Tammuz was the Babylonian counterfeit of Jesus Christ.

Here the Greek god Dionysus carries the pine cone staff as a fertility symbol. Pine cones and pine cone staffs are very common on pagan statues and art symbols of fertility and regeneration. Children are always looked upon as extending the life of the human species. Therefore, it is predictable that the Pine Cone should be linked to the new life of the conception of children.

(in the British Museum) 

The largest pine cone in the world in the Court of the Pine Cone at the Vatican, Rome. Pagans have always coveted eternal life and have sought it by worshipping and revering many objects they find in Nature.

The Roman Catholic Church utilizes the pine cone just as any good Pagan religion would do. This is further evidence that Roman Catholicism is more Pagan than Christian. In fact we could say that Roman Catholicism is counterfeit Christianity with Paganism as its beating heart. Pine cones are common in Roman Catholic architecture and sacred decorations. Note how the cone at the Vatican is immature and therefore unopened, just the way they want it!

The Pope carries a pine cone mounted on his staff, the ultimate pagan symbol.

Since the ultimate goal of religion is the securing of eternal life, one should not be surprised that the Pope should be carrying the ultimate Pagan symbol of eternal life.

Meaning of the Scepter

1 Samuel 17:45

Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

Throughout the history of civilization, the leaders of many cultures have adopted the scepter as a symbol of power and authority. They were of diverse of formats and materials, but their characteristic significance of supremacy and sovereignty did not vary.

They were objects of distinction of command in the format of short staffs and wands. In the ancient times, scepters were used by the Gods and demigods, heroes and legendary kings; usually they were long and extended.

2350 BCE       Sargon (I) the Great (beloved shepherd of Ishtar) founds Akkadian empire; Enheduanna, the daughter of Sargon, becomes the high priestess of Inanna and composes poetry to her, the first recorded case of known authorship: “To give the crown, the throne and the scepter of kingship is yours, Inanna”

In Ancient Egypt, the staffs were often described as scepters because they were also a symbol of power, independency and sovereignty. In Pharaonic Egypt, toilette articles, weapons against possible enemies, amulets against serpents, were also left in the royal and spiritual leader’s tomb, together with magic texts and a magic wand which enabled the ka, or soul, to use them. The staff with the longest history seems to be the heqa-scepter, sometimes described as the shepherd’s crook.

Isis enthroned with royal golden staff, this Black Goddess has a regal feel depicted here on her throne. 

In classical Greco-Roman mythology, the god Hermes/Mercury has a special wand called a caduceus.

 

In the Hellenistic period, the biblical Book of Ester mentions the scepter of the King of Persia.

During the Middle Ages, the kings and regents usually used the shorter versions, but ostentatiously adorned as an item of royal or imperial insignia. In ecclesiastical and formal government ceremonies, special officials may carry a wand of office or staff of office representing their power. In the present times, we still see the use of scepters but in more simplified and smaller formats. Scepters with small shrines on the top are sometimes represented on royal seals.

Use of a rod or staff as representing authority can be traced to the commencement of Classical Antiquity. Among the early Greeks, the scepter was a long staff, such as Agamemnon wielded or was used by respected elders, and came to be used by judges, military leaders, priests and others in authority. It is represented on painted vases as a long staff tipped with a metal ornament. When the scepter is borne by Zeus or Hades, it is headed by a bird. It was this symbol of Zeus, the father of Olympus, which gave their inviolable status to the kerykes, the heralds, who were thus protected by the precursor of modern diplomatic immunity. When, in the Iliad Agamemnon sends Odysseus to the leaders of the Achaeans, he lends him his scepter.

The same significance can be found in the use of the staffs and wands, and many magicians and high priests of many schools of wisdom from the past used these elements to externalize the power and the control over certain elements of the spiritual realm, hence the use of magic wands. There is some scholarly opinion that the magic wand may have its roots as a symbol of the phallus. It may also have originated as the drumming stick of a shaman, especially in Central Asia and Siberia, as when using it to bang on his drum or point, to perform religious, healing, and magical ceremonies.

 

At her coronation in 1953, Queen Elizabeth II had a scepter in one hand and a cross crowned orb in the other. The symbols are borrowed directly from pagan Greece and Rome.

The visual symbolism of holding the world in one’s hand was a clear message used since antiquity. Citizens of Rome were familiar with the plain round globe as a representation of the world or universe, represented by Jupiter, and thus the Emperor’s dominion and absolute dictatorial rule over the pagan Roman Empire….Obviously, the Roman eagle has been replaced by the British lion so they can use the United States as their cat’s-paw or lap-dog!!

The orb and scepter were the symbols of Zeus or Jupiter as the supreme false god of the Greek and Roman pantheon.

The orb represents universal dominion.

The goddess Nike was called Victoria at Rome.

The cross, representing the Papal Roman Empire, wassubstituted for Victoria or Victory by Emperor Constantine.

One of the symbols of the military orders of the Vatican, the masonic double-headed eagle emblazoned with the Maltese cross, signifies omnipotent royal dominion over both East and West. The orb signifies temporal dominion over the globe of Earth, and the scepter signifies control over the spiritual and religious impulses of humanity. This eagle symbol is used in the masonic rite of Memphis and Misraim, under which it reads, “Order Out of Chaos”, the Hegelian method of crisis creation. It is found on the seals of many European and Eurasian nation states including that of Russia, indicating direct Vatican control over those countries.

Prayer Beads/ Rosary Beads

For centuries prayer beads have been used by people of faith to focus their minds (in meditation), their spirits (through prayer), and their bodies (by touching the beads) on the Lord Himself. This method of worship can help attune one’s whole being to His presence in the midst of the distractions of day to day living.

The rosary and prayer beads of Catholicism are pagan practices used in Mexico, Tibet, China, and Greece, as well as by Hindus and Pagan Rome. This began as the Rosary of the Sacred Heart in Babylon and Egypt, where the heart was a sacred symbol of Osiris when he was reborn and appeared as Harpocrates, or the infant divinity, born in the arms of his mother Isis. The rosary still resembles a human heart.

Based on “The Two Babylons” by Alixander Hislop every one knows how thoroughly Romanist is the use of the rosary; and how the devotees of Rome mechanically tell their prayers upon their beads. The rosary, however, is no invention of the Papacy. It is of the highest antiquity, and almost universally found among Pagan nations. The rosary was used as a sacred instrument among the ancient Mexicans. It is commonly employed among the Brahmins of Hindustan; and in the Hindoo sacred books reference is made to it again and again. Thus, in an account of the death of Sati, the wife of Shiva, we find the rosary introduced: “On hearing of this event, Shiva fainted from grief; then, having recovered, he hastened to the banks of the river of heaven, where he beheld lying the body of his beloved Sati, arrayed in white garments, holding a rosary in her hand, and glowing with splendour, bright as burnished gold.” In Thibet it has been used from time immemorial, and among all the millions in the East that adhere to the Buddhist faith.

The following, from Sir John F. Davis, will show how it is employed in China: “From the Tartar religion of the Lamas, the rosary of 108 beads has become a part of the ceremonial dress attached to the nine grades of official rank. It consists of a necklace of stones and coral, nearly as large as a pigeon’s egg, descending to the waist, and distinguished by various beads, according to the quality of the wearer.

There is a small rosary of eighteen beads, of inferior size,with which the bonzes count their prayers and ejaculations exactly as in the Romish ritual. The laity in China sometimes wear this at the wrist, perfumed with musk, and give it the name of Heang-choo, or fragrant beads.”

In Asiatic Greece the rosary was commonly used, as may be seen from the image of the Ephesian Diana. In Pagan Rome the same appears to have been the case. The necklaces which the Roman ladies wore were not merely ornamental bands about the neck, but hung down the breast, just as the modern rosaries do; and the name by which they were called indicates the use to which they were applied. “Monile,” the ordinary word for a necklace, can have no other meaning than that of a “Remembrancer.”

Now, whatever might be the pretence, in the first instance, for the introduction of such “Rosaries” or “Remembrancers,” the very idea of such a thing is thoroughly Pagan. * It supposes that a certain number of prayers must be regularly gone over; it overlooks the grand demand which God makes for the heart, and leads those who use them to believe that form and routine are everything, and that “they must be heard for their much speaking.”

What are Anglican Prayer Beads?

Anglican Prayer Beads are made of a cross and 33 beads.
Meditation begins at the cross (1).
The first large bead (2) invites the worshiper into prayer.
Each of the other four large beads (3) precedes a grouping of seven smaller beads (4).

Matthew 6:7

King James Version (KJV)

 7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

A Catholic priest holding rosary beads. The Bible tells us not to pray with vain repetitions (Matthew 6:7), so where does Catholicism take its repetitious prayers and rosary beads from? The answer is from paganism. Many Eastern Religions  also follow this custom.

 Islamic Prayer Beads Called Misbaha & Tespih

The word “Tesbih” (also called as Tasbih or Misbaha) means prayer beads or rosary and originates from the word “Supha” (also pronounced sebha), which means to
recite the glories of God (Allah).

Tesbih with 99 beads symbolize the ninety nine names of God in Islam. Sometimes only 33 beads are used, in this case Tesbih would be cycled 3 times to reach 99. The main phrase repeated through the first thirty three beads is “Süphanallah” which means “Praise be to God.” For the next thirty three beads, “Glory be to God,” or “Elhümdülillah,”and for the final thirty three beads, “Allahuekber” which means God is most great, is repeated. After these repetitions a final prayer is said, bringing the total number of prayers, as dictated by the Koran, to one-hundred.

Eucharist or “Host”
In the Roman Catholic mass, the Eucharist or “host” (the round wafer) is a symbol of the sun. It is normally placed during ceremonial masses on a monstrance with a crescent moon, symbolizing the plunging of the sun into the womb of the goddess. Some monstrances bear the letters “SFS,” which represents 666 666, as S was the sixth letter in the ancient Greek alphabet and F is the sixth letter in our alphabet 

The round disc in the crescent moon was a symbol of ancient Babylon, and is found in all the ancient religions. In Catholic cathedrals, these symbols are very prominent, often depicting a round form of mother and child within the crescent moon.

The rebirth of the sun god was celebrated by the eating of round bread in Babylonian times, and was common in Mithraism and Osiris worship.

Mesopotamian symbol of Baal-Hadad

The Mesopotamian symbol of Baal-Hadad—the crescent or half moon receiving the sun god. Here the sun is actually a star. The star in the moon is just another version of the sun crescent descending into the moon, or womb. The star represented Horus and the round disk Osiris. Horus was the rebirth of Osiris, and so they both signify the same thing. It is interesting that Islam has the star in the crescent moon (sign of Horus) as its sign. Islam & Catholicism stand side by side. Wherever you go in the world, you will find mosques beside Catholic cathedrals. 

The solar deity shown as a disk in a crescent. The crescent is a symbol of the womb of the woman which receives the rebirth of the sun god, the sun descending into the moon is a symbol of sexual union.

As the sun god (Nimrod) plunged into the waters of the womb (Euphrates), so the reincarnated son plunged into the waters of the womb to be worshiped as Savior.

Here is the Baal-Hadad symbol in ancient Hittite culture. Notice the peacocks on the side, the face of Apollo in the circle, and the laurel leaf with 13 leaves around it. The United Nations uses that symbol for itself.

According to the teachings, if we went back to the days of ancient Babylon, we would find people attending mass, partaking of a little round wafer, worshipping a cross, going to confession, being baptized with water for the remission of sins, burning wax candles, and bowing before a divine Mother and Child. We would notice that places of worship featured a tower. Priests, wearing a circular tonsure, dressed in black garments, would give those who died the last rites. With monks and nuns in abundance, the Babylonians would be practicing essentially all the rites that are known today in the Roman Catholic Church! 

The Catholic Church makes tradition above or equal to Scripture, but in actuality many of its traditions actually stem from pagan sun worship. Its teachings, beliefs and practices come from Mithraism —a form of paganism that existed in Babylonian times.

These pagan practices are symbols of apostasy against God.
