In the essay Son of Man Rises Over JPL the belief in a great calamity occurring at the Dawn of Pisces was presented. According to the gospels of Matthew 22:23, Mark 12:18, and Luke 20:27 a split in the Jewish teachings existed at the beginning of the Epoch between the Sadducees and the Pharisees. The former taught that life was an on going event and their was no life after death. The latter believed a Son of David would come as a Messiah to restore the Kingdom. On the matter of succession, the gospels are unambiguous. Matthew 16:6 & 12 very clearly describe that a problem exists with the scriptural interpretations; Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. --- Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. The point is fully made in Matthew 22:32; I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. The division in the Jewish faith at the time was amplified by the introduction of the religion of Mithras, and was a world wide process of division. As we discussed in the prior essay, the personal responsibility and material conquest ideology of the Mithraic Mysteries resulted in Rome conquering the relevant communities in Western Civilization. Modern Christian theology still echos the belief in the upcoming Armageddon. This image of Armageddon was drawn from scriptural and celestial events. It was the method of divination used by all ancient civilizations that was in a state of upheaval. Rome began a suppression of the scriptural and spiritual foundations of divination, because, in the eyes of the Mithraic Mysteries, these systems had become lost in dogma and procedure. Rome attempted to bring the world back down to Earth. This made Imperial Rome, and the emperors, the ones who would nail Western Civilization to the earthly cross it would carry for two thousand years. Men in the Mithraic cults worked to satisfy the needs of the "God of the Living" in a strict code of silence. Though the Mithraic Mysteries were based upon the same celestial scriptures that prevailed in the lands they set out to conquer, their aspects of serving the "God of the Living" in silence would open a huge door of opportunity for tyranny. That tyranny was the prediction that the ancients foretold as an Armageddon. Two thousand years after the belief that an Armageddon event was occurring in civilization, we have the luxury to look back and determine if any of the soothsayers had divined truth in their futures.
There can be little doubt that the divinations were extremely accurate. Western Civilization had gone into a complete age of darkness, precisely in synchronization with the asterisms which foretold the future. Rome was destroyed, and Europe entered into the Dark Ages. Constantine moved the center of the empire to Constantinople and established a new theocracy which became the Byzantine Empire. This theocracy was based completely upon revelations from the stars. Egypt vanished from the face of the Earth, after the Byzantine Empire purged their remaining "Pagan" temples, and destroyed the great library at Alexandria. Byzantium had returned to the God Kings of the Bronze Age. Although the Emperor was not a Pharaoh in the true sense, he was recognized as Christ on Earth. As Almighty God ruled the cosmos, so the Son of God again ruled civilization on Earth through the auspices of a feminine wisdom (Sophia) priesthood.
However, the theologians of Rome were reluctant to give that amount of cosmic power back to the common individual. The experience of Caesar Augustus had conditioned them against allowing a human to declare himself to be the living Son of God, without the sanction of a priesthood. Caesar Augustus had attempted to destroy all wisdom contrary to his egocentric perspective, if not all theological wisdom. His example initiated the so called two hundred years of the Pax Romana which was in fact an all out war against spirituality. That is the precise reason why Christians were fed to lions at the circuses in Rome, and why the Druids, Celts, Jews, and Egyptians were driven into obscurity. It is the legacy of this blindness that we carry with us today. We reward Rome as an empire of pragmatists, and Byzantium is given a contemptuous place in Western Civilization. Yet the order of Byzantium survived a thousand years longer than the Western Empire of Rome. One major reason for their survival was the adoption of a religion that kept the people in communion with the Emperor. Unlike his Roman counterparts, the autocratic Byzantium ruler was subject to a Cosmic Creator. Roman tyrants had stolen the wealth of civilization for purely self serving purposes without subservience.
To say that the emperors of Rome were swashbuckling pirates who attempted to rape and pillage the whole Earth has scriptural support. Read the words of Luke 10:30-35; And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
These verses were taken directly from the asterisms between Taurus and Scorpio, as was the Tauroctony of the Mithraic Mysteries. This interpretation tells the story of "a certain" man, who was Orion, of the ancient Bronze Age traditions associated with the cults of legendary heros such as Osiris, Gilgamesh, and Joseph. The road from Jerusalem to Jericho is the path of the planets along the ecliptic, with Jerusalem being above the ecliptic and the galaxy west of Sagittarius, and Jericho being east of Taurus. The thieves who stripped him of his raiment were the Solar theologies that utilized the zodiac as the primary course of divination. These included astrologers and the Mithraic Cults which sprang from Persia and Zoroastrian theology. But it was also messianic traditions of the Hebrews which had lost their references to the stars. The raiment is all the asterisms in the heavens and their meanings, or every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matt 4:4
The reference to being left half dead has to do with the asterisms of Fornax, Phoenix, and Sculptor at the end of the celestial river at the bottom of the galaxy. A certain priest is a representation of Taurus and the Egyptians who could not save the cosmic consciousness of man. The Levite is a representation of Aries as the House of David, whether Sadducee or Pharisee. This Levite, being the ram in Aries, actually looks over the Valley of Death, but continues on his way, indicating that the Jews had not saved the cosmic consciousness of man, even though they had been aware of it. Now the Good Samaritan did not cross to the other side of Pisces. As Aquarius, he provided oil and wine from his cup. Following behind Aquarius on the road to Jericho is his beast, the goat Capricorn, which Aquarius uses to carry the injured man back to the inn, which is the ecliptic. This "inn" on the ecliptic is where all the asterisms of Jacob's ladder are to be found, and it is where civilization had come to find the dominant truth from celestial divinations.
The verses reference money which is the asterism of the western fish in Pisces. The wounded man is thus cared for and arises on the wings of the eagle as Antinous. This passage from Orion to Antinous is an echo of the more ancient legends of Gilgamesh in Babylon, and Orion in Egypt. It is the story of Joseph and Benjamin. The designation of a "certain Samaritan" was chosen to signify that it was the people of Samaria that recognized, or divined, this new correspondence of the asterisms between Taurus and Sagittarius. The verse clearly expresses their belief that the religions of the other lands, Babylon, Egypt, Israel, Greece, and Rome had failed to keep the ancient traditions of civilization alive. These "empires" had all become "thieves" in the night and civilization had lost its way.
To fully understand this passage, it is critical to realize that the Samaritans were people who lived in what is called Northern Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan, today. It was the north region of Palestine including the Sea of Galilee, and they were variously called Gentiles, Galileans, Samaritans, and Nazarenes. It is vitally important in understanding the evolution of Western Civilization and Western Theology to recognize the role these people played in restructuring the spiritual environment of the Western World. In the cosmic perspective, the verses in Luke are describing the resuscitation of human civilization after the destruction which began to take place after the end of the Bronze Age between 1225 BC and 1175 BC after the decimation of the Egyptian Empire. According to Ernest L. Martin in The People That History Forgot (pg. 33), Samaritans became active after the destruction of the "Ten Tribes" of Northern Israel by the Assyrians. Martin cites the Bible (II Kings 17:24-41) indicating that the Samaritans were not Jews. These people were returned from Assyria where the Zoroastrian religion of the Persians was dominant. This religious influence explicitly utilized the zodiac constellations to tell the story of creation and life. Many "synagogues" have been found in Samaria with the zodiac circle prominently displayed on ceilings and floors. Samaritans declared themselves to be of Jewish descent, but the Bible declared them to be idolaters in II Kings 17:24-41; So these nations feared the LORD, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children's children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day. This is a statement that the Samaritans accepted the Jewish deity, but utilized graven images in their services.
By the time of the Roman conquests, Jewish tradition had become totally esoteric, that is rational and hidden, a direct result of the priestly prohibition against "graven images." Part of the reason was simple survival. If their enemies could understand their religious practices, then their enemies could overpower them. For the purposes of unity in the theocracy, it was also necessary to keep the Jewish flock under the shield of the Levite priests in Jerusalem, which by then had shed itself of the Mosaic intuition for the sake of Judean rationalism. Esotericism has many purposes, some defensive, some pedantic. Nearly all esotericism becomes dogmatic when the original source is lost. This is true of mathematical science, astrology, history, and religion. When the sources of the Old Testament stories are found in the asterisms, it becomes clear that the twelve tribes of Jacob and the twelve houses of the zodiac are inseparable. It is also true that the Samaritans worshiped the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as stated in II Kings 17:24-41.
We are shown the correspondence between the zodiac houses in Revelations 21:12-14 as it discusses the holy Jerusalem which --- had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. The twelve houses are added to in verses 21:21-23; And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. These last three verses describe why the theology was transforming. In the Jewish tradition there were twelve tribes of Jacob, or a total of thirteen houses. In the Revelations version there is an additional house for the Lamb. This Lamb is not Aries, or Capricorn, it is Orion, and the glory of God refers to the constellation of Ophiuchus, the more ancient Zeus, Jacob, Abraham, Ra, and several Babylonian deities.
John connects Ophiuchus and Orion in verses 22:1-3; And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: The "pure river of water of life, clear as crystal," is the Milky Way, which runs under the feet of Ophiuchus and over the outstretched arm of Orion. Ophiuchus presides over the superliminal cosmos above the galaxy, and Orion presides over the subliminal cosmos below the galaxy. Orion is the sacrificed "Lamb", who will come again to sit at the right hand of the father after he has passed through the valley of death. Most important to the story is the elimination of the curse which had overtaken the world through prophecies regarding the beginning of the Age of Pisces, and the bondage for the sins of Eve and Seth.
For two thousand years Western Civilization has awaited the return of the
Son of Man. If the stars over JPL on July 4, 1997 are synchronized with the
Cosmic Creator, then they have declared that the Son of Man has risen over
JPL. But this is an event of stupendous proportions. Sure the operating of
a remote vehicle by the intelligence of a biomass on another planet is
stupendous, but of almost unfathomable correspondence is the apparent fact
that the ancient scriptures predict the time of the event. Now we are venturing
into the realm of the followers of the Heaven's Gate cult. Do we accept what
the stars say, or do we follow our material scientific biases and say it
is impossible? Here is the cosmic station where doubters and skeptics begin
to have convulsions. It is also the cosmic station where the so called faithful
begin to shout, "blasphemy and heresy". John described the great beast, who
was a combination of Scorpio, Hydra, and Cancer with the same concern in
Revelations 13:1 and
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. ---- So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
To say that the book of Revelations is one of the most complex books in the Bible is surely an understatement. However, it is not the book that is hard to understand, it is the correspondence to cosmic truth that is difficult to understand. That difficulty is completely erased when we go to the stars and look at the images they portray, as it is revealed in John 9:10-11; Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
Whether we are skeptic or righteous, it is essential that we acknowledge that the enigma of the mysteries of ancient scriptures is due to the wisdom they hold, not the lack of understanding which we defend. We can never understand that which we prevent ourselves from witnessing. Righteousness is just as predisposed to insecurity as skepticism. Skepticism and righteousness are identical from a point of view of action, for they both give power to faith rather than fact in a divergence of righteous intent. Therefore, hold on to skepticism only if it gives a sense of security that is needed to pursue the truth. And remember that truth is blocked by arrogance when fear overpowers consciousness. Lack of truth is the ultimate form of bondage, and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32)
Whether righteous or skeptic, a review of the source of righteous intent is appropriate. Righteousness results when we follow a leader over some unknown trail. Then looking back we say we are on the trail. It is impossible to see a righteous path behind us that we have not yet walked upon. That is why we trust those who have walked the path before. All we really desire is a sense of security. When it comes to the forbidden graven images, we must examine the commandment that makes the graven images forbidden, and attempt to interpret the possible celestial source and meaning.
Revelation 13:1 described the beast with seven heads and ten horns with ten crowns. The seven heads are referring to the rationalizations of the seven spirits of God. The ten horns and the ten crowns are referring to the use of the Ten Commandments to control others. This control of others is what produces the vision of blasphemy. In Exodus 20:4 is the pertinent statement regarding the utilization of asterisms; Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: With this dogma, Western Civilization was driven away from the heavens by rational theologians. It is a clear statement that the problem will be in making "graven images." These are images which do not change, because they are engraved. It is not a statement about idols, but rather a statement that says all images within the cosmos are subject to change. The asterisms in Auriga can represent Abraham, Moses, Elijah, the Good Shepherd, or even the Good Samaritan. The greatest difficulty humans have with rational existence is the understanding of consciousness in a changing world. When humans overcome the hangups that prevent them from changing, they become like little children and have new and exciting experiences. Rational behavior is dogma based upon recognized images that are perceived to be unchanging. The lack of change is a direct result of the suppression of intuition and the bondage to insensitivity it engenders. This stiffnecked behavior of all rational theologies, or sciences, was addressed before and after the captivity in Assyria and Babylon; Exod 32:9 --- and the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: --- Deut 10:16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked.
As a qualifier to the commandment forbidding the engraving of images in the mind, is the following one in Exodus verse 20:7; Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. This commandment says that even though things are constantly changing, be aware that the rationalizations (names) from the past are valid even when they are not timely. Vanity of self over ancestral wisdom is a primary consideration for the conscious mind. If prior knowledge is made available, it should be given proper consideration, in case it is still appropriate.
These two commandments deal with recognition and rationalization of the cosmic medium. They are preceded by the fundamental statement for comprehending the essence of consciousness which was stated in Exodus 20:3, Thou shalt have no other gods before me. A Cosmic Being of the capacity of the Hebrew God does not need to tell people about potential sin. Genesis clearly states that the Hebrew God created all things, and all of the things created were good. It was the "mother of all living," human intuition, that found evil in the cosmos. With this perspective Exodus 20:3 is a straight forward statement regarding the subject of consciousness. Thou shalt have no other gods before me, means precisely what it says. There are no other gods. If some being other than the Cosmic Being is before the "face of God," then the person has made a mistake and the consciousness is lost. A lost consciousness in not conscious. When this is understood in the true cosmic sense, it is clear that it is possibly the most profound statement in the Bible. Whether interpreted by a skeptic or righteous person this statement is the point where truthful awareness comes into existence, as the awareness of truth. It is a natural and sacred process which John 14:6 memorializes; Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. In the Tauroctony scene, it is the moment when Mithras recognizes that the battle with the cosmic bull comes to an end.
When the body has a false god before it, the consciousness fails to communicate with the Cosmic Being, and therefore, the consciousness does not exist. What exists is another aspect of the Cosmic Being. A different truth is revealed through a different consciousness. Here is where the battle lines are drawn and wars break out over the divisive self cognizance of one person toward another. If the self consciousness locks onto the image revealed to it, it engraves the image. Psychiatrists make a living by attempting to interpret the "engraved images" on the minds of children. By the time the psychiatrist analyzes the "engraved image" on the mind of the child, many years have passed and the child has bound its intuitive capacity to communicate in an adult body.
Recognizing the inability to communicate beyond the "graven images" of prior consciousness, we can fully understand the prelude to these three oracles. We are reminded of the habitual nature of a world in which unconscious behavior controls existence from Exodus 20:2; I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. The "house of bondage" is habitual nature, and Egypt is the psycho-spiritual place where subconscious existence controls the world. They are one and they are the subliminal mind, as well as, the whole cosmos below the Milky Way. Remember that Moses was given these revelations on Mount Horeb. This is the same mountain where Abraham went to slay Isaac. It is the place where Elijah mounted a "chariot of fire." It is where the Apostles witnessed the transfiguration of Jesus. It is Auriga, where Mithras faces a vision of awe after overcoming the bull of his mother, intuition.
Before we venture into the space of the stars it is necessary to discuss the meaning of the zodiac encoded thousands of years ago. We have not determined with certainty, yet, when civilization began to encode the esoteric meanings into the constellations and celestial bodies along the path of the sun. Mars was the Roman god of war. In conjunction with the planet Venus they represent the rational and emotional (intuitive) characteristics of physical being. Earth is the only known resting place of consciousness in the solar system. Both rational and intuitive methods must be employed by consciousness in order to communicate. Intuition is always the source of conscious communication. If we do not apply intuitive skills properly we will be bound by recognition of "graven images" in our rational mind. All truth about the present Cosmic Being must pass through the intuitive faculties. It is then weighed with prior knowledge to strip away the mysteries. If all mysteriousness is taken away, then understanding is revealed to the consciousness. If an enigma persists, consciousness may become insecure. At the point of becoming insecure, the ego can step in and demolish the intuitive communication by swamping it with some "graven image" from the past. It is the death of the ego after the binding of intuition that was implied by the Armageddon at Pisces. This Armageddon was a positive event, for the Cosmos could begin to communicate again after the equinox passed the bottom of the ecliptic. Until then it had to hold its words waiting for intuition to save the planet. On a metaphysical basis, intuition is the life giving waters in the cup of Aquarius, the Good Samaritan.
Mithraism and Revelations 9:11 both declare that the key to the bottomless pit, or the underside of the galaxy, is at the star Regulus. This then is where the journey must begin, if we are to understand the ancients, and find their pearly gates to heaven. Starting with Regulus at a front foot in Leo, we encounter the series of asterisms along the ecliptic path defined in the adjacent table and the illustration below.
The asterism of the constellation Cancer implies feeling. To the ancients it was the gift from God. On a "scientific" basis all living organisms are distinguished from non-living organisms by the capacity for feeling. After feeling comes cognizance, or thought. Gemini represents thinking by virtue of the brightest stars in the asterism being at the heads. It is also important to realize that the heavens declare thinking to be a male and female capacity. At the foot of the male twin is the intersection of the ecliptic with the Milky Way. This makes the location especially important. Crossing over the Milky Way the precession enters into the constellation of Taurus. To understand why Taurus represents material wealth in particular and abundance in general consider Napoleon Hill's presentation in Think and Grow Rich. In his best selling book he pointed out the path to success was through the process of thinking. Taurus represents material, physical, rational, and spiritual abundance. Her name is "I Have," and it the aspect of abundance that is the cosmic bull. We perceive the rational essence of Taurus when our thoughts reach the point where we say, "I've got it!"
The intersection of the ecliptic and the Milky Way between Gemini and Taurus is a location of substantial importance to the ancients. It was Horeb to the Hebrews, and it was the right side of the Tauroctony scene in Mithraic Mysteries. In Christianity, the scene is described as the baptism, the transfiguration, or the place of the Good Shepherd. Around this location is the greatest conflict in the heavens. Abundance results in desire, and vice versa. Thus the conflict is on the acquisition of abundance in what ever form it takes.
Passing over Taurus we come to Aries. Here a ram is rising above the ecliptic. Symbolically, the ecliptic is in essence the earth. It is a plane defined by the apparent path of the sun, but is in fact the plane of the orbit of the Earth. Thus the ecliptic is more Earth than solar. Because of this fact, the ancients called the path of the ecliptic, earth. Aries is rising above the earth. His name is "I Am". He represents the capacity to recognize that which had previously been thought. It is this capacity that leads to egocentric or arrogant behavior. When we begin to believe that we are what we identify ourselves to be, we stop learning and become adult like. That leads to psychological hang ups and the loss of mental and spiritual growth. We become dependent upon our materialistic recognition, since it can be "verified" by the methods we recognize. Self identity is a place of self destruction. The last three thousand years of Western Civilization have proven this statement to be true on a macroscopic basis, and it is proven by teenagers and people with addictions every day.
Intuition says that self destruction can only occur when there is a self, and it must occur because all processes in life are mortal. In other words it is martyrdom of the self that eventually saves the self. That is an extremely difficult concept for the ego to comprehend, much less support.
This is the point where the purpose of the death and resurrection in Pisces is defined. Matthew 16:24-28 describes it this way; Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
The first fish in Pisces is a clear barrier to the arrogance of Aries. This barrier is represented with the words "I Doubt," which are evidence of faith in the negative. It was faith in the negative aspects of Pisces that caused the Hebrews and the Romans to seek a way over the bull back to the "land flowing with milk and honey." Both of these theologies were Zionist in nature and purpose. Avoiding the bottomless pit was their primary objective. In order to avoid the bottomless pit they had to deny the message of the precession. That is precisely where Western Civilization is today, in denial of the precession, and the story it tells.
Western civilization lost its soul in the house of Aries. It was taken at the moment the Angel of Death flew over the vernal equinox late in the fourteenth century before Christ. This was the prediction which the Egyptians had made, and it has come to pass. The Egyptians also predicted by the ceremony of the opening of the mouth, that the experience of the past, in the form of the legend of Osiris, would come back to the world late in the Age of Pisces. When the vernal equinox hit bottom it would begin to rise again. The second fish in Pisces carries the positive name "I Believe." The only effective way to overcome the habitual behaviors of life is through belief in a new life. This is the aspect that distinguishes Christianity from Judaism and Mithraism. A need to be "born again" is established in the gospels. Mark 10:15 describes the necessity to open the heart of the child within; Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. While John 3:4-6 more fully explains the process of giving up one identity in order to achieve a more fuller sense of being; --- How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. We are given a physical existence through the metaphysical element of water. When we understand significance in the experiences life provides, we are given a spiritual existence through the metaphysical element fire. It is a very simple and self evident statement about life. However, its simplicity grossly understates the trauma of the elimination of self identity which it requires. That trauma can be overcome with faith that the temple of present consciousness can be rebuilt in a fraction of the time it took build in the first occasion. This passage is written on the celestial vault from Orion to Antinous through the Pearly Gates I Save to I Arise again.
Of all the messages delivered through the gospels and the ladder of Jacob, this message is the hardest to accept. We find it very difficult to recognize that consciousness is reborn every day, and many times each day. It is the rebirth of consciousness in the body that is the essence of the Christian message. Fearful materialistic egocentric consciousness prevents understanding of this principle because the fear that gives birth to ego through "I Doubt" resists the tearing down of the rationalizations which are the temple within the body. Mark 14:58 describes false witnesses presenting their doubt; We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. John 2:19-21 eliminates any doubt that the gospel scriptures are speaking of the metaphysical psychological and spiritual essences of the temple in man; Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body. This is the legacy of the Age of Pisces. We are living at the moment when cosmic consciousness will begin its climb back to the top of the galaxy. This route of the equinoxes is the only true measure of time. Denial of the movement by fixing the 1st of Aries at the vernal equinox is the problem which stopped our awareness of Cosmic Divinity within ourselves. Our mathematically precise instruments prevent children from reading the ancient messages right before their eyes. In ancient times there were fewer technological crutches, and children found truth by direct observation. As children today, we are raised on written words, the ancient cosmic references of which have been abandoned and desecrated upon for thirty-three hundred years.
The present vernal equinox is above the "pool of siloam." A Good Samaritan carrying a pitcher of water runs toward this place called now, with the compassionate understanding, "I Know." The much heralded Age of Aquarius has a false image of serendipity promulgated by the errant theology of Western Astrology, and the fear of ambivalence in Pisces. We do not need compassion. We need to pick up our bed and walk.
Pisces speaks of the salvation of the Son of Man through the legend of Jesus in John 5:4-9; For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
John 12:34-36 further clarifies the light of the world as the need to pay attention; The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man? Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. In hiding from the light, we have become confused. Psychiatrists like to call it ADD, for attention deficit disorder. This fancy acronym elevates the priests of psychiatry to an esoteric ivory tower. But in reality, it is our belief in the lack of need to pay attention that gives us all a certain level of ADD.
We have fully rediscovered the essence of Creation over the last thirty-three centuries. We know! This is the dawning of the information age. Can there be any doubt that the next hundred years will see information processing techniques evolve at a rate that will make every bit of important human knowledge available in each home by turning on a television-computer monitor. When the flood of information hits us we will be swamped, unless we pay attention.
That which is driving use toward the inundation of an informational flood is the capacity to use the resources which are given to us. Like Capricorn using her horns to drive Aquarius toward the pool of siloam, the spirit of "I Use" will manipulate compassion into information that can be utilized. Does it make any sense to call the vernal equinox the 1st of Aries when the event occurs in Capricorn? By then the astrologers will have surely realized that they must stop the esoteric bull excrement from flowing in their lines of cosmic communication. The lines of communication will become exoteric again, and the children who properly understand the message of Capricorn will utilize the belief and knowledge gained by the experience of life to proceed toward spiritual fulfillment and wisdom. This is the gift to God given by successful living. That is why the ancients called Capricorn the gift to God at Heaven's Gate.
Aries, Aquarius, and Capricorn are asterisms focused on the bottomless pit under the Milky Way at the west fish in Pisces. Between Capricorn and Sagittarius there is an empty spot. This empty spot should logically be occupied by the successful child who overcame the bottomless pit. However, it is a spiritual accomplishment, and the child is found above the ecliptic on the wings of Aquila as the child king Antinous. This constellation has been designated as an obsolete asterism by modern astronomers. In their pragmatic style, there is no need for an area of the sky to have two names. This is a example of scientists decimating the skies as technology eliminates the soul.
The name Antinous can be traced to the Emperor Hadrian. Hadrian was given credit for allowing his youthful male lover, Antinous, to jump into the river and die. An Egyptian oracle told him that either he would die or someone he loved the most in the world would die. According to the legend, Antinous threw himself into the river in order that the emperor would live. This legend has a metaphorical meaning which suggests that we will all surely die if we do not allow those selfish things which we love the most to pass away. Life has to go on. It is when the utility of life is over that we most want to save it, yet that is precisely when we have to let it go.
The child who gives up his youth, succeeds in life and prevails over the sage who sees tomorrow as an echo of today. It is a symbol of resurrection of the spirit through divine order. Sagittarius stands at the boundary intersection of the galaxy and the ecliptic with only the top of his bow and head above the ecliptic. Wisdom becomes recalcitrant due to memories of pain and suffering. It attempts to eliminate pain and suffering, and that is why the "I See" asterism is aiming its bow toward the heart of the Great Red Dragon. Wisdom is swamped with experience and is sinking under the Milky Way. Wisdom must pass on the baton in that relay race called life to the next generation. In Christianity, it is the Christ Child born of the Virgin who gets the new lease on life. In Judaism this moment was captured in several verses. Genesis 49:27 records the celestial transition from Jacob through Joseph to his youngest son; Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.
Most important to Sagittarius are the relevant Old Testament verses dealing
with the death of Moses. Exodus 40:33-38 presents Moses as finishing the
work of the Lord, and then being excluded from entering the tent of the
congregation. This metaphor was derived from the sinking of Sagittarius from
the cosmos above the galaxy. Numbers and Deuteronomy deal less kindly with
Moses, probably as a result of the intervening years of exile. In these books
Moses is allowed to see the Promised Land, but he is not allowed to enter
the land because he had provided water to the Israelites in the Wilderness
of Zin through Mosaic intuition in understanding the stars under the Milky
Way. Instead, Moses passes on the quest for the promised land to Joshua (Num
27:12-18, Deut 1:37-39, Deut 3:27-29, Deut 32:45-52, Deut 34:1-6). These
texts tell us that Aaron was buried in Mount Hor, or at the place where the
ecliptic and the galaxy meet under Auriga. They tell us that Moses looked
over the Jordan at the other intersection between the bow of Sagittarius
and the right knee of Ophiuchus. Then Deuteronomy 34:6 tells us that Moses
was buried in the valley which is in Pisces, with the following words;
And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor:
but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day. Hidden under Pisces
is an asterism of extreme importance to the cosmos. That constellation is
called Sculptor today. Within the asterism is the lowest point in all creation,
the axis of the bottomless pit under the Milky Way. It lies on the solar
Meridian of the vernal equinox today, near the Pool of Siloam.
Thus we do know where the sepulcher of Moses is located. It is in a place we call today. Near the asterism are two stars. Achernar is a star brighter than the 1st magnitude having an Arabic name which means "end of the river." It is located under the asterism known as the Phoenix, whose head star is Ankaa. Thus Moses went to the bottom of the cosmic river where he will rise again at the moment when the ceremony of the opening of the mouth is celebrated. Adjacent to the head of the Sculptor is the 1st magnitude star Fomalhaut. This star name is also Arabic and means the fish's mouth. Moses (Sculptor) still holds the staff which he used to demonstrate his power over the Egyptians and the Hebrews in Exodus 4:1-5; And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee. And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand: That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee.
Throughout his biblical passage, Moses had trouble speaking. His trouble was due to the fact that his speech was spiritual rather than rational. Aaron was the rational one. Moses had the capacity to communicate directly with God, as a result, his speech was intuitive. The laws were given to Moses and put into speech and writing by Aaron. This is an unmistakable metaphor that says communication begins with intuition and is carried out with reason.
Returning to the journey from Regulus we leave Sagittarius and come upon the constellation Ophiuchus. This constellation was the house of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It was also the house of Ra, and Zeus. It is not a particularly bright constellation, but it carries a powerful message. It is the Egyptian "opener of the ways." Standing with one foot on the Milky Way and one foot on the ecliptic, it is the "Grand Man of Zohar" from the Jewish Qabalah. In Christianity, Christ beckons Saint Peter to come and walk upon the waters with him. But Peter's faith is less than required and he sinks into the sea. Matt 14:29-30 records the encounter with these words; And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. This is an essence of the encounter at Ophiuchus and Sagittarius. The primary essence is that implied by the son on the eagle's wings and the Serpent in the hands of Ophiuchus. Ophiuchus was most often regarded as the essence of rational creation and cosmic consciousness. Byzantium put the resurrected Jesus on the throne, at Ophiuchus, while Roman theologians kept Jesus on the cross, as an example of egocentric reward.
Because of the great importance that Ophiuchus, and his alter ego Orion, had to the ancient worlds these asterisms were taken off the zodiac produced by the Persians and Zoroastrians. In his stead they placed the constellation of Scorpio. This is how the legend of Orion being killed by a Scorpion played out in the history of civilization. Scorpio is a constellation which rivals Orion in brightness. It has two very conspicuous aspects, the stinger at its tail, and the jaws or claws at its head. The claws were cut off by the Zoroastrians, but credit was given to Julius Caesar in order to enforce the mutilation. Without its claws the spirit of Scorpio is significantly compromised. Of course it was human wisdom that felt the need to limit the asterism of physical desire. Unfortunately, wisdom left one of the brightest constellations with the power to kill for five months in its tail. The Great Red Dragon was reduced to being an evil beast whose powers were not comprehensible. We can fully understand the meaning of the "I Desire" constellation when we reattach her claws. Then we see an asterism that rises from the third part of the stars of heaven to the earth. In other words, she desires physical life. Her full essence is presented in the words of the Olivia Newton John song "Let's Get Physical". That is why the scorpion is shown at the genitals of the bull in the Tauroctony scene.
There is not much that needs to be added regarding the mystery of the
constellation of Libra. The "I Balance" asterism shown below is more
man made than any of the other zodiac constellations. It was designed as
the direct result of human wisdom about the experiences of life. It is an
indication that Sagittarius partially won the battle with the Scorpion. But
we should always be prepared to recognize the claws of a Scorpion when physical
desires exceed our capacity for judgment. We may be able to place this "iron
rod" between desire and analysis, but because it is not natural, we will
forever do battle with the man made laws it attempts to regulate.
At the apex of the balance is a third magnitude star called Zuben El Genubi. Since the time of the Persian conquests, this star has been in a conscious struggle for dominance of the ecliptic with Regulus. It is a metaphor for the need to balance desire and will. When desire exceeds Cosmic Will, as implied by the Great Red Dragon killing Orion, the individual will is thwarted, and desire is left unfulfilled. Celestial desires become sublimated through the constellation of Hydra, an under earth passage to Cancer, avoiding analysis and free will. Hydra, being a water serpent, lies in the cosmic river, Eridanus, which flows from Scorpio (physical desire) to Phoenix (material return). The passage through Scorpio and Eridanus corresponds to the route of physical addiction to the "bottomless pit." It was this state of cosmic consciousness that ruled the Age of Aries. They sought the answer to the eternal question, "Should civilization create laws in an attempt to avoid evil and addiction, or acquiesce to the cosmic laws?" Israel and Rome took the former course and destroyed the "Pagans," who believed that cosmic will should prevail, because it was "natural."
From a cosmic perspective we need to constantly analyze our state of balance. Otherwise we will give birth to subliminal beasts and lose sight of the Kingdom of Heaven. Virgo, lying on her back with her legs up and her brightest star at her hips, suggests an analytical virgin giving birth. Her brightest star, Spica, gives away her greatest asset, her virginity. The position of her legs suggests that she is in the process of child birth. Her arm reaching toward the top of the galaxy seems to be asking "Why?". On either side of the largest of the zodiac constellations is balanced physical desire and royal determination. If passage is taken in the direction implied by the sun and the planets, analysis leads to physical desire. If passage is taken in the direction of the precession, analysis leads to the Kingdom of Heaven. If passage is taken without balanced analysis, we may awake, and come to our senses within Cancer, never realizing the redundancy of our actions. Or, we may wander off into an unconscious wilderness as driftwood on a celestial river. We are all virgins until we have children, then in the eyes of the cosmos within the infant, we become gods. Virgins who become parents have a need to become a guiding light toward the Kingdom of Heaven. Inquisitive virgins who do not become parents will forever lay on the analytical couch asking "Why do I keep having feelings?". Apathetic virgins simply drift into addiction at the "bottomless pit," waiting for an inspiration to come to them.
Virgo is at the top of the ecliptic, and in ancient times she held the constellation of Coma Berenices as stalks of wheat. These stalks of wheat were known as the House of Bread, or Bethlehem. Is it any wonder that the Son of God would have to be born of the Virgin in Bethlehem? As the highest point on the axis of the mother of our star system, it is intuitively clear that all living come from this place and aspire to return to it. This is Zion. This is the Elysian Fields. This is the land flowing with milk and honey. It is also why the words of Luke 2:4 were necessary for the Samaritan theologians to properly connect the heavens to scripture; And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem.
This process of cosmic birth is the entrance to the Kingdom of Heaven. Fulfilling desire by analyzing the state of balance of Cosmic Will and individual will is the threshold that must be crossed in order to enter the house of the "I Will." That occurs after the vernal equinox passes through the head of Virgo and enters into Leo. Thus the ancient wisdom that it was necessary to be born of the Virgin in order to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven became known to Western Civilization in the story of the new age called Pisces.
A major difference between the ancient wisdom and Western Astrology is the direction which is used to tell time. Western Astrology declares the 1st of Aries as the beginning. It follows the sun through the twelve houses and finishes in Pisces. The reversed motion is a direct result of the attempt to hide the truth by the Mithraic fathers in Rome, and the desire to communicate the birth signs in conjunction with the months of the year. Sol Invictus was their goal. They succeeded in eliminating the precession of the equinoxes, as Western Civilization abandoned the galaxy for a single star, the sun. Dominated by the recognition and rationality of Aries, they in turn dominated the spiritual world around them. Had Western Astrology been open about the esoteric mysteries, they would have been able to communicate the truth more effectively. This process would have weakened the position of the adepts of solar astrology, and from Rome's perspective, the position of the emperor.
Now let us review these paths through the Pearly Gates around the celestial ladder. First, solar astrology says it this way; I Am, I Have, I Think, I Feel, I Will, I Analyze, I Balance, I Desire, I See, I Use, I Know, I Believe. They begin with self recognition and end with self doubt. This should eliminate any wonder that modern Western Solar Astrology is treated as a pseudo science or quackery. Contrast this with the precessional direction that begins at Regulus; I Feel, I Think, I Have, I Am, I Believe, I Know, I Use, I See, I Desire, I Balance, I Analyze, I Will. Following this precessional path along the zodiac reveals the evolutionary cycle of life. The precessional process has a subliminal path for those who search but do not find the key to the bottomless pit. It cycles under Virgo and Leo; I feel, I Think, I Have, I Am, I Believe, I Know, I Use, I See, I Covet, I Sublimate, I Feel, ----. This process ignores the path of balancing self analysis, and as a result, it fails to acheive the cosmic will and is bound in an habitual cycle searching for the key to self will. There is a more consumptive path which includes only Scorpio as the Great Red Dragon, and Eridanus as the celestial river; I Covet, I Wander, I Covet, I Wander, I Covet, I Wander, I Covet - - -. This is the path of physical consumption without rationality or inspiration. It was to avoid the latter two precessional paths that Jacob's Ladder was first created, and then recognized. Chaldean, Hebrew, Egyptian, Mithraic, Christian, Jewish, Islamic, and Morman theologies all recognize the need to include all the "pearls" of cosmic wisdom. However, their practitioners are children who are subject to the temptations of the easier and simpler paths which lead to tyranny and addiction, but most importantly to the loss of self will.
Christianity came as a result of the necessity to break the cycle of the tyranny that had taken over the state and the cosmos when rules and laws became addictions of the rational mind. Anarchy was not a viable option for the world, as the Jews found out in Jerusalem and Masada. The only reliable approach to rid the world of the addictive tyrannical behavior was capitulation and spiritual death. All of the great religions of the world, and even adepts of the Mithraic Mysteries, attempted to perform one more syncretization to regain peace in the cosmos. A catholic, or universal, religion was needed which would allow for the children of Pisces to continue without knowledge of what they were doing. This would restore the theocractic state and eliminate the secular state. People would follow their intuition and not the dictates of the despots in charge of their government. Christianity eventually won the Holy War as Constantine established the theocracy of the Byzantine Empire. The strength of the Byzantine theocracy was demonstrated by its surviving for over a millennium after the secular state was abandoned in Rome. Remnants of the Roman legal system were tied to the Holy Roman Empire and the Church in Rome. During these centuries the Western World dropped into its darkest age. It was not the dogma of the churches that caused the failure of civilization, it was an effect of blind faith in the "graven images" within the scriptures without scientific measurement of their meaning.
This is precisely what the founders of the theology expected to happen. Civilization would have to suffer through the valley of death if it was ever going to arise again. They could not predict the details of the new awakening, only that it would occur in accordance with the celestial message which had now been encoded into the Gospels. In the east, Byzantium saw Christ rise to their Heavenly throne on Earth. In the west, Rome saw Christ stuck to a cross of suffering for the sake of all humanity, as a reminder of arrogant self will. Righteousness was not the primary consideration in either of these two results, cosmic correspondence was the consideration. With cosmic correspondence as the consideration, both the East and the West obeyed the Cosmic Will. East remembered when it happened last. The West waited for it to happen again.
All of this discussion has presented the celestial curse and the great calamity through which humanity had to pass. What we have witnessed in the essay, and the thirty three hundred years it describes, was Jacob's dream unfolding as reality. His ladder rests on the earth at the bottomless pit and rises to the Elysian Fields flowing with milk and honey. Genesis 28:10-22 describes the dream of the ladder to heaven. And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not. And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.
And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.
This stone which marks the pillar of the galaxy was once called the Ben Ben stone in Egypt. They memorialized the stone as the pyramids of Egypt. It was in the celestial land of Egypt while the ladder was resting upon the Ben Ben stone that Israel was born. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. Gen 32:27-28
It was the destiny of Israel to Passover Egypt on a journey exceeding three millennia. In Genesis 31:10-13 we see the beginning of the journey; And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled. And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob: And I said, Here am I. And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams which leap upon the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and grisled: for I have seen all that Laban doeth unto thee. I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred. The Rams crossed over the Cattle when the vernal equinox passed from Taurus to Aries around 1824 BC, or 1935 years after the autumn equinox came up out of the sea. Then, 3759 years after the drying of the autumn equinox the first of the Fishes killed the Rams. Now the earth has traveled 5754 years since the drying of the autumn equinox, and the pillar of Bethel, the house of El, aligns directly on the equinoxes. The pillar's base is at the bottomless pit where the Egyptians placed the Ben Ben stone, and Jacob dreamed of a ladder for angels to tread. The pinnacle of the pillar passes through the back of the head of a virgin, who was once known as the "mother of all living," and is the resting place of Rachel.
It is the burial of Jacob's beloved wife, Rachel, that proves that Israel was under the tent supported upon the pillar of Osiris, the bull of my mother in Egypt. Israel called this place the house of El, the bull of Canaan. And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel. And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour. And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also. And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin. And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day. Gen 35:15-20 Benoni means "son of my sorrow" and was the name the "mother of all living" gave to Antinous. Benjamin means "son at the right hand" and was the name the "father of all living" gave to Antinous. These metaphors define the course of the Israelites throughout the Old Testament. In the Gospels and the Book of Revelations, Benoni and Benjamin are united as the Christ, for that which burdens a woman unburdens a man, and that which unburdens a woman burdens a man. Salvation is the reunification of the masculine and feminine powers in the physical being and the cosmic soul. He ain't heavy. He's my brother.
Ephrath is descended from a Hebrew word meaning "fruitfulness," which represents the house of bread at the top of the galaxy, which they called Bethlehem. Thus Jacob is Osiris and Geb, and Rachel is Isis and Nut. Nearly one and a half cosmic generations have come and gone since these visions were first put to script. How long will "ringstraked, speckled, and grisled" Rams continue in their irrational pursuit of self identity? How long will the pillar of the galaxy hold its position? Passing the pillar of Bethel and Bethlehem represents a moment when humanity can keep its vow and listen to the Cosmic Voice, now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.
We have witnessed the appetite of Benjamin described in Genesis 49:27; Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil. Oh Jacob, what has your son wrought; How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. Gen 28:17 It is time to raise our kindred from the tomb of avarice and addiction, to once again travel to the Promised Land and view Heaven's Gate from above the pillar of life.
