The War against the Christ and the War with the Saints

Everyone has sinned. No one—not one—is righteous according to the Bible. That would include Church hierarchy. And, over time, pagan festivals surely fused with Christian; for that all churches share some blame. Yet in Christianity, one church above all others goes far beyond to self-appointed Vicarius Filii Dei—considering themselves in the place of Christ.

For now, at least, let us steer clear of conspiracy theories and unbelievable scenarios. Let us look, however, at symbolism. A symbolism that speaks in and of itself, nonetheless each person brings with them their own obligation to “test every spirit”: to read the Bible; to read history; and to decide for themselves.

Symbolism that is ornate, gestured, and circumscribed in its persuasion and ubiety.

  • A Baal sun-symbol adorns the mitre of the “Vicar of Christ”
  • And what of that round disc with issuing rays — The Vatican solar wheel: Son worship or sun worship?
  • A pine-cone statue. The pine-cone is an ancient (pagan) symbol of the fertility Goddess.
  • The obelisk, just like that one in St Peter’s Square, an ancient phallic symbol used in the worship of Osiris.
  • At what point did Mary, mother of Messiah, turn mediator?
  • A statue of St. Peter, in the Vatican: or is that Zeus (Greek) or Jupiter (Roman)?
  • What’s with a bent cross?
  • And the triple crown?
  • Those aren’t keys to the city. This lion has them too. Is St. Peters, and the Vatican, in the shape of a giant key?
  • That “fishy mitre” is Dagon the god of the Philistines, pagan arch enemies of the Israelites.

     

                                                        

                                                                                       

                                      
                                           

We have a fleur de lis papacy. And the triple crown (triregnum), a Maltese Tiara no less. The cross is bent and upside down. The Roman Catholic church will tell you the inverted cross is in recognition of the manner of crucifixion St. Peter, the “first Pope”. Is IHS an anagram of the name of Jesus Christ: “In His Service”, or rather Isis, Horus, and Set?

What other “heavenly” pursuits concern the Vatican? What eke are they up to?

VATICAN CITY — Extra-terrestrials: Do they exist?

The head of the Vatican Observatory thinks there’s a good chance they do, and that their existence would be in keeping with the faith. In a May 14 interview with the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano May 14, headlined “The Extra-terrestrial Is My Brother,” astronomer Jesuit Father José Gabriel Funes said that according to his “scientific judgment,” the existence of extra-terrestrials is a “possibility.” “Astronomers contend that the universe is made up of a hundred billion galaxies, each of which is composed of hundreds of billions of stars,” he said. “Many of these, or almost all of them, could have planets. [So] how can you exclude that life has developed somewhere else?” The Vatican Observatory is one of the oldest astronomical research institutions in the world, and has its headquarters at the papal summer residence in Castel Gandolfo just outside Rome. Its main research telescopes, however, are located at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Father Funes, who took over as head of the observatory in 2006, denied that the existence of other intelligent life-forms would contradict Christian belief. “As there exist many creatures on earth, so there could be other beings, also intelligent, created by God,” he said. “This doesn’t contradict our faith because we cannot put limits on the creative freedom of God. To say it as St. Francis [of Assisi], if we consider some earthly creatures as ‘brother’ and ‘sister,’ why couldn’t we also talk of an ‘extra-terrestrial brother’? He would also belong to creation.” The Argentine Jesuit explained that scientists studying the question of extra-terrestrial life have made much progress in recent years, and will soon be able to identify if other planets have the conditions necessary for life. He added that, in theory, forms of life could also exist in parts of the universe without oxygen and hydrogen.

Could the Papacy fit the description of a Beast? Is America the “Image of the Beast”? Is the Bishop of Rome (call no man father) a candidate for “False Prophet”? If so, who then is the Antichrist?

Jesus said: “there is no way to the Father but through me.” If Jesus is the way, then stop listening to everyone else.

Roman Mithraism

Mithras or Mica (Michael), a Persian then Roman Sun God

Mithras is a Greek form of the name of an Indo-European god, Mithra or Mitra (Old Persian, Mica). Roman writers believed that Mithraism came from Persia and that Mithraic iconography represented Persian mythology. Mithraism was once called the Mysteries of Mithras or Mysteries of the Persians.

In Rome, Mithras was a sun god, and, in Persia, he was a god of the morning sun. The Roman Mithras killed the Primeval Bull, mirroring the death of a Primeval Bull in the Persian religion.

The Roman Mithras wore a Phrygian cap. Phrygia was in the Persian empire for 200 years. Modern scholars have traced Mithras in Persian, Mittanian and Indian mythology. The Mitanni gave us the first written reference to Mithras in a treaty with the Hittites. These and much more suggest a continuity of belief from India to Rome in a myth of a sun god killing a bull.

The Romans attributed their Mithraic Mysteries to Persian or Zoroastrian sources relating to Mithra, although more recently those mysteries have been qualified as a distinct Roman product.

Mithra is the origin of the word mitre – the priestly hat most notably worn by the Popes of this world.

Who or what is Mithra?

There was a mystery religion of the 1st-4th century of the Roman Empire that was inspired by the worship of the proto-Indo-Iranian god, Mitra. It was particularly popular with the Roman military and involved complex and graded initiation ceremonies, replete with ritual meals and unique handshakes.

Zoroastrian Pantheon

As a member of the ahuric triad, (which also include Ahura Mazda and Ahura Berezaiti) Mithra Avestan [Mica, to his friends] was the divinity (yazata) of contracts and oath — a judicial figure, an all-seeing protector of Truth, as well as the guardian of cattle, the harvest and of The Waters.

One of three judges at the Chinvat — the “bridge of separation” that all souls must cross — Mithra was an exalted figure. He was undeceivable, infallible, eternally watchful, and never-resting.

Mithra is described in the Avesta scriptures and prayers as:

Litany to the Sun
Homage to Mithra of wide cattle pastures
Whose word is true, who is of the assembly
Who has a thousand ears, the well-shaped one
Who has ten thousand eyes, the exalted one
Who has wide knowledge, the helpful one
Who sleeps not, the ever wakeful.
We sacrifice to Mithra, The lord of all countries, Whom Ahura Mazda created the most glorious, Of the supernatural yazads. So may there come to us for aid, Both Mithra and Ahura, the two exalted ones. I shall sacrifice to his mace, well aimed against the skulls of the Daevas.

While Mithra is not the sun, he is an element of Persian sun-god worship. Sol Invictus, the official sun god of the later Roman Empire, was also patron of soldiers.

We can appreciate were some of today’s religions [no names] and secret societies [nope — no names] got their ritualistic observances and practices.

[Ed: The ethnic Kurdish group, so persecuted in Iraq today, deny any connection of their faith to Zoroastrianism. Nevertheless, the word Yazidi is almost certainly, one would think, related to the word yazata (see above).]

PS. Together with the Vedic common noun mitra, the Avestan common noun miθra derives from proto-Indo-Iranian *mitra, from the root mi- “to bind”, with the “tool suffix” -tra- “causing to.” Thus, etymologically mitra/miθra means “that which causes binding”, preserved in the Avestan word for “covenant, contract, oath”. Perhaps here is also the origin of the Roman fasces, from whence comes the word “fascism”..
