Muslims claim that Jesus was a Muslim even though he drank wine. Also the quran tells Muslims not to take Jews or Christians as friends and to crucify Christians. My views on the Christ are not conventional by any stretch of the imagination. An acquaintance of mine made a documentary on the Lord known as the the Caesar’s Messiah.
His premise is that Jesus didn’t actually exist and that he was actually a literary coup benchmarking the Jewish typology. If that was the case it was the most brilliant mass manipulation since Moses. But I have a slightly different perspective. Many people point to the fact that Josephus didn’t mention Jesus and that any reference to him was a spurious retro insertion. But many overlook the fact that Josephus was a Samaritan and Jesus was overtly biased against Samaritans. Observe:
Josephan scholarship in the 19th and early 20th century became focused on Josephus’ relationship to the sect of thePharisees. It consistently portrayed him as a member of the sect, and as a traitor to the Jewish nation—a view which became known as the classical concept of Josephus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus#Josephus_scholarship
In response Vespasian decided to keep Josephus as a hostage and interpreter. After Vespasian did become Emperor in 69, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor’s family name of Flavius. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus#Josephus_scholarship
Josephus was a Pharisee and the Pharisees were Samaritans. Jesus debated them relentlessly calling them offspring of vipers.
“These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.” Matt 10:5
But what of the account of the Good Samaritan? Well, the disciples knew very well how Jesus felt about Samaritans, so when they asked him “Who is my brother?” because Jesus was trying to teach them a philosophical brother hood, a philoish.
Philia (/ˈfɪljə/ or /ˈfɪliə/; Ancient Greek: φιλία), often translated “brotherly love“, is one of the four ancient Greek words for love: philia, storge, agape and eros. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philia
The Good Samaritan was the exception to the rule, not the rule, the exception proves the rule BECAUSE it is an exception. If a Samaritan acted like that he would be your brother, notice that in the parable Jesus also uses a Pharisee as an example of what a person who is not your brother would do. The adherents to the law code of Abraham, not that of Moses and not that of Jesus.
THE SATANIC CHRIST
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16
Lucifer (/ˈluːsɪfər/ or /ˈljuːsɪfər/) is the King James Version rendering of the Hebrew word הֵילֵל in Isaiah. This word, transliterated hêlêl or heylel, occurs only once in the Hebrew Bible and according to the KJV-influenced Strong’s Concordance means “shining one, morning star, Lucifer”. The word Lucifer is taken from the LatinVulgate, which translates הֵילֵל as lucifer,[Isa 14:12] meaning “the morning star, the planetVenus“, or, as an adjective, “light-bringing”. TheSeptuagint renders הֵילֵל in Greek as ἑωσφόρος (heōsphoros), a name, literally “bringer of dawn”, for the morning star. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer
Jesus was claiming to be lucifer. Not only that, behold:
5Or haven’t you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent? 6I tell you that something greater than the temple is here. 7If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’a you would not have condemned the innocent. 8For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” Matt: 12
Jesus wasn’t claiming to be the lord of the sabbath so much as he was claiming to be the god of death. Pythagorus name means I am the Python, snakes are chthonic figures, synonymous with death. The Jews helenized and absorbed the Greek culture, Jesus, the carpenter was part of a Pythagorean math cult, he even makes reference to the “cornerstone that the rejected” to this day that is a Freemasonic reference. The Freemasons claim their origins were Pythagorean math cults.
The word Shiva comes from the Hebrew word shiv’ah, which literally means “seven”. The tradition was developed in response to the story in Genesis 50:1-14 in which Joseph mourns the death of his father Jacob (Israel) for seven days. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_(Judaism)#Etymology
The Sabbath is Saturday, Sabado, the Seventh day, lol. Jesus was saying that he was Shiva, the god of death.
“The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ http://biblehub.com/luke/7-34.htm
Can anybody think of a religion today that forbids drinking alcohol? Muslims. Abrahamic law covenant. Ask yourself this question, Why did Jesus turn water into wine? The signature miracle of the cult of Bacchus?
The Bacchanalia were Roman festivals of Bacchus, based on various ecstatic elements of the Greek Dionysia. They seem to have been popular, and well-organised, throughout the central and southern Italian peninsula. They were almost certainly associated with Rome’s native cult of Liber, and probably arrived in Rome itself around 200 BC but like all mystery religions of the ancient world, very little is known of their rites.
I want you to meditate on the nature of the early initiations of secret societies, many being held in caves and the allegory of plato’s cave and what that has to do with modern media. If you can control what people see and hear, you can control what they think and do. Philosopher kings, Guardians, Slaves. Which are you? Do you think for yourself?
24But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”
25Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 27And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
I have mentioned this before, that Jesus didn’t specifically deny that he was casting out demons by the power of Beelzebub and instead makes a reference to the temple of Solomon who built gods temple using sorcery. But I am bringing this up again for a different reason.
n the Testament of Solomon, Beelzebul (not Beelzebub) appears as prince of the demons and says (6.2) that he was formerly a leading heavenly angel who was (6.7) associated with the star Hesperus (which is the normal Greek name for the planet Venus (Αφροδíτη) as evening star). Seemingly, Beelzebul here is simplyLucifer. Beelzebul claims to cause destruction through tyrants, to cause demons to be worshipped among men, to excite priests to lust, to cause jealousies in cities and murders, and to bring on war. The Testament of Solomon is a Hellenistic[disambiguation needed] Old Testament pseudepigraphical work, purportedly written by KingSolomon, in which Solomon mostly describes particular demons whom he enslaved to help build the temple, with substantial Christian interpolations.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebub
Rabbinical literature commentary equates Baal Zebub of Ekron as lord of the “fly.”The word Ba‘al Zebûb in rabbinical texts is a mockery of the Ba’al religion, which ancient Hebrews considered to be idol worship. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebub#Judaism
I want you to remind yourself that Socrates exposed the “pretenders to wisdom” and he was known as the gadfly. He was also an initiate of the Pythagorean math cults.
This transformation or humanization of the Satyr appears throughout late Greek art. Another example of this shift occurs in the portrayal of Medusa and in that of the Amazon, characters who are traditionally depicted as barbaric and uncivilized. A very humanized Satyr is depicted in a work of Praxiteles known as the “Resting Satyr“.
Greek spirits [non-classical] known as Calicantsars have a noticeable resemblance to the ancient satyrs; they have goats’ ears and the feet of donkeys or goats or horses, are covered with hair, and love women and the dance.
Although they are not mentioned by Homer, in a fragment of Hesiod‘s works they are called brothers of the mountain nymphs and Kuretes, strongly connected with the cult of Dionysus. In the Dionysus cult, male followers are known as satyrs and female followers as maenads or bacchants.
I want you to contemplate this for an instant. What if in ancient Greece, on Saturday, everybody went to the theater and got drunk and acted stupid and went home and had sex, sometimes with their wives. When the Pharisees accused Jesus of “casting out demons” what did that mean? Atheists hear a phrase like “casting out demons” and they scoff, that is so humorous to them. They lose interest, but, they don’t understand the perspective of the person expressing themselves in that fashion. Something you probably didn’t know because of your obvious lack of interest in any form of religious language.
Some have offered an explanation suggesting that people once held the folk belief that a person’s soul could be thrown from their body when they sneezed, that sneezing otherwise opened the body to invasion by the Devil or evil spirits, or that sneezing was the body’s effort to force out an invading evil presence. In these cases, “God bless you” or “bless you” is used as a sort of shield against evil. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_bless_you
So when the Persian/Samaritan/Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of beelzebub, contemplate for a moment that they might have been referring to laughter…
ISLAM prohibits sinful speech that intends to cause harm to other human beings. It also prohibits excessive laughter or extreme humor. http://www.arabnews.com/news/454234
Laughter, fun, and joking are permissible in Islam provided guidelines from Quran and Hadith are followed. For humour to be in accordance with Islam, the joke should not insult anyone, should not frighten anyone, should be within the limits of Islamic tolerance, should tell the truth, should not be offensive, should not contain unIslamic material or promote immorality and indecency.
I AM GOING TO LEAVE YOU WITH THIS…
You Are of Your Father the Devil
39 They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, 40 but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did. 41 You are doing the works your father did.” They said to him, “We were not born of sexual immorality. We have one Father—even God.” 42 Jesus said to them,“If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”
Drops microphone, walks off stage…
New International Version
Babylon, the Prostitute on the Beast
1One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. 2With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”
3Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 4The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. 5The name written on her forehead was a mystery:
BABYLON THE GREAT
THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES
AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.
When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. 7Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come.
9“This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. 10They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while. 11The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.
12“The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
15Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled. 18The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”
To quote my friend, Lon Milo Duquette, the bible was written by cabalists for cabalists and much of it wasn’t meant for common perusal. The rabbinical science of PaRDeS was a means of concealing and revealing meaning. In order to use it you have to be familiar with Qabbalah, and if you haven’t gained proficiency therein you will never be able to uncover the hidden meaning correctly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardes_(Jewish_exegesis)
The seven angels with the seven bowl is a reference to the Jewish matrika shakti, the spirits that rule over the 7 planets and days of the week. Sun day, Moon Day, Tyrs day, Thors day, freya’s day, and Saturn’s day. It is also a reference to the 7 hills on which Rome was founded. Prometheus was punished by having to roll a boulder over a hill for all eternity. Where a planet is in its orbit is referred to as either Prometheus or Epimetheus.
Now we don’t know exactly when the Jews Helenized but I believe I can cast some light on that subject but let us consider the positions of Aristotle on the subject of money.
“Yes the truth is that men’s ambition and their desire to make money are among the most frequent causes of deliberate acts of injustice.”
Aristotle felt that Merchants should be slaves, which is to say non citizens, and that they should never be allowed to rule or gain political office. Furthermore he was mistrustful of Sailors/Merchants as purveyors of vice and disease. Interestingly, it is maritime law that is responsible for going to war, not domestic law as it is imprudent for one group to declare war on another in a city state. Maritime law determines going to battle based on an inequity of trade, or a deal gone south. Compare that to the concept of: “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters”. Prostitution is a business, a prostituting of one self for money.
“With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”
Everybody enjoys the benefits of Capitalism, but don’t seem to understand that the rewards it offers are secondary to the fact that these huge corporations, multi-nationals are taking money out of your house/oikos/economy and investing it for their own benefit, not yours. Which means that over time they will have all the money and all of the control and you will be their slaves.
The English words “economy” and “economics” can be traced back to the Greek words οἰκονόμος (i.e. “one who manages a household”), a composite word derived from οἶκος(“house”) and νέμω (“manage; distribute”) by way of οἰκονομία (“household management”). ~wikipedia
Big business sells your labor and makes a profit off of it. This is an up down relationship not a horizontal democratic relationship. if you are selling your own products and services, small business, you are the equal to the customer. If your services and products are being sold by a large corporation you are inferior to your boss and to the customer. Your boss gets rewarded for making more money off of you, while giving you less reward. Your boss benefits from illegal immigration because he can force you to compete with poor cultures that will work for less. So not only do you support them because they can’t afford licensing and insurance, and they live 20 people to a house, working 2 or more full time jobs and sending 2/3s of their income back to their poor country so that their parents who had 20 children can live an easy life without working, but you also have to compete with them. You are now the equal of a slave in your own country, TA-DAA! CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE SO LUCKY! AREN’T YOU GLAD YOU INDUSTRIALIZED?
If you examine the story of Moses you see an inescapable parallel between the creation of the Chassidim by Rabbi Ba’al Shem Tov and Moses. The Hebrew word Mizraim refers to Egypt but it also refers to the Nations, specifically big nations with large economies and love of money.
Now notice Jesus didn’t say that money, was the root of all evil, but THE LOVE OF MONEY. Who loves money? Merchants. Bankers. Usurers. Shylocks.
I am personally of the opinion that the Jewish reformation was to remove a mentality that had crept into the Jewish faith. That of the Persians. To this day Persians have an elitist, superior mentality. Consider how the Greeks perceived the Persians who would adorn their hair with gold before they went into battle, they would braid their hair like women and they would put on eye make up like women. To this day Muslims in Saudi Arabia and Egypt consider themselves too important to pick up their own filth, it is not a sustainable society. They bring slaves from Somalia to do it for them,
Abid (Arabic: عبد, plural Abeed عبيد or El Abeed العبيد)is a derogatory term meaning “slave” used mainly in Arab countries and is usually applied as an insult to Black people to invoke stereotypes. The name has been explained as being an allusion to the submission that Muslims owe to Allah. Meyer[attribution needed] dismisses this as “efforts by propagandists [to] explain the term away [that are] at the least, disingenuous”. ~wikipedia.
And in Egypt it is the pigs and dogs on the street that eat the garbage that everybody is too important to take care of themselves. The Kosher diet is very humble, very sustainable, very bland, it isn’t suitable for a people that consider themselves royalty and superior to others.
11They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?12Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!” exodus 14:
24So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?” exodus 15:
4The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, “If only we had meat to eat! 5We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost—also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. 6But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!” numbers 11:
The economy is not coming back. In order for there to be capitalism you need some kind of large surplus to exploit. Something you have a lot of that you can give away at a small profit. We don’t have anything like that anymore. Furthermore you have to have the energy to do it. We don’t have gas anymore in the same quantities. Not everybody can afford to industrialize because they would need fossil fuels. We are rapidly seeing that atomic energy is not all it is cracked up to be, and it is not a viable solution for future energy. We need another source of energy and nothing is on the horizon.
