December 31, 2012
As we approach the worlds New Year I want to once again bring the new brethren up to speed as to what this is all about.
Exodus 12:2 tells us exactly when the New Year is according to Yehovah.
The old man depicted as “Father Time” is also known as “Cronus” and has a sickle. He is also known as the Grim Reaper as he takes the dead with him at this time of year. Usually the dead children.
The young child that brings in the New Year is also depicted drinking wine based on the legend of him being a cup bearer.
I am going to share with you a teaching I gave a few years ago:
Know this; Cush is the one that is “Father Time” and is castrated by Nimrod who is the new young baby, or the “New Year.”
The Grim reaper was also Nimrod who had the children killed on his birthday, December 25. This was known in history as the “Worship of Molech” and today is known as “Christmas.”
To forget the awful things that they had done in sacrificing the children, they would get drunk.
At the “new year,” Nimrod would take over from Cush (father time) and usher in a “golden age.” Everyone has hope for good things with the “new year” each year.
So as you read this account keep in mind what you are celebrating and how it is going to affect your family in the future.
So this week we are watching the entire world say goodbye to the “old” year and get drunk and drive and let loose of any inhibitions. But in case some of you did not know Yehovah himself tells us when the New Year is:
Exodus 12: 1 And ???? spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon in the land of Mitsrayim, saying, 2 “This month is the beginning of months for you, it is the first month of the year for you. 3 “Speak to all the congregation of Yisra’?l, saying, ‘On the tenth day of this month each one of them is to take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. 4 ‘And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next to his house take it according to the number of the beings, according to each man’s need you make your count for the lamb. 5 ‘Let the lamb be a perfect one, a year old male. Take it from the sheep or from the goats. 6 ‘And you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then all the assembly of the congregation of Yisra’?l shall kill it between the evenings. 7 ‘And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. 8 ‘And they shall eat the flesh on that night, roasted in fire – with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
The New Year begins the exact same month that Passover falls in. You have just read it and yet much of the world is keeping it now at the beginning of “January.” Some will try to tell you that the New Year is in the fall at the Feast of Trumpets which is on the first day of the Seventh month; So for those of you who are mathematically challenged, please go and find any three year old and ask him or her if the first month is number “One” or not. Then I want you to ask him or her what number is the Seventh Month? Is the Seventh Month the first month? Huh???? The three year old will give you the truth, even though many adults will still try to lie and justify all the messed up behavior they do in order to justify them not having to change and conform to the Torah!
The Month of December is Latin for the 10th month. November is Latin for the 9th month, October is Latin for the 8th month, and September is Latin for the 7th month. So January used to be the 11th month and February used to be the 12th month. There is sometimes a 13th month depending on special situations, but this would make the first month in March or April depending on whether or not there is a 13th month. This is when Passover is, just as we are told in Exodus chapter 12:2.
The year used for dates during the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire was the “consular” year which began on the day when “Consuls” first entered office — probably 1 May before 222 BC, 15 March from 222 BC to 154 BC. However, this event was moved to 1 January in 153 BC. In 45 BC. Julius Caesar introduced the “Julian” calendar but continued to use 1 January as the “first day” of the new year.
Yehovah says the first month is 2 weeks prior to Passover in the Spring. If so, then what is “holiday” the whole world celebrating now?
I want you to think about what it is that you are doing when you go out and keep New Year Celebrations with the rest of the world at this time. It is like holding your middle finger up and waving it at Yehovah.
Let’s look at this and see exactly why those who keep this Feast are holding up that finger.
Saturnalia became one of the most popular Roman festivals. It was marked by drunken orgies, tomfoolery and reversal of social roles, in which slaves and masters ostensibly switched places, much like the Lord of Misrule in later Christian celebrations? Saturnalia was introduced around [217 BC] to raise citizen morale after a crushing military defeat at the hands of the Carthaginians. Originally celebrated for a day, on December 17, its popularity saw it grow until it became a week-long extravaganza, ending on the 23rd. Efforts to shorten the celebration were unsuccessful. Augustus tried to reduce it to three days, and Caligula to five. These attempts caused uproar and massive revolts among the Roman citizens.
Saturnalia involved the conventional sacrifices, a couch (lectisternium) set out in front of the temple of Saturn and the untying of the ropes that bound the statue of Saturn during the rest of the year. A Saturnalicius princeps was elected master of ceremonies for the proceedings. Besides the public rites there were a series of holidays and customs celebrated privately. The celebrations included a school holiday, the making and giving of small presents (saturnalia et sigillaricia), massive and multiple group orgies, and a special market (sigillaria). Gambling was allowed for all, even slaves.
We explained to you recently about the “Festival of lights” which takes place at this time of year. This is what Christmas and Chanukah celebrations are all about. Never mind the Biblical birth of Yehshua which many try to use in order to keep this pagan feast, or the story of the Maccabees which others try to use to justify for themselves the keeping of this holiday at this time of year. Yes, both stories are true and should be studied; but the use of a pagan festival is not justified by adding some Scriptures to it.
Deuteronomy 28: 28 “Guard, and obey all these words which I command you, that it might be well with you and your children after you forever, when you do what is good and right in the eyes of ???? your Elohim. 29 “When ???? your Elohim does cut off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, 30 guard yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire about their mighty ones, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their mighty ones? And let me do so too.’
See also: Dt.18:9, Lev. 18:3, Jer.10:2, Ezek. 11:12 & 20:32, Eph. 4:17, and 1 Peter 4:3 31 “Do not do so to ???? your Elohim, for every abomination which ???? hates they have done to their mighty ones, for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their mighty ones. 32 “All the words I am commanding you, guard to do it – do not add to it nor take away from it.1 Footnote: 1See also 4:2, Prov. 30:6, Rev. 22:18-19.
So, instead of keeping the New Year at the first month in which Passover comes, many keep the New Year now- just as the nations did who Joshua drove out of Canaan. How do I know this? Read verse 31 again and again until it sinks in.
31 “Do not do so to ???? your Elohim, for every abomination which ???? hates they have done to their mighty ones, for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their mighty ones.
Take a look at these two pictures of Saturn eating his children; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn_Devouring_His_Son
It is at this time of the year that “Saturn-alia,” the worship of Saturn takes place. Did you read above how Saturn was tied up for the rest of the year? Did you ask yourselves why? Again, look at the pictures in the URL above. Saturn is St. Nicolas and is also known as the religion of the Nicolaitans in the book of Revelation. Notice in Revelation that Satan is also to be bound for the thousand years.?As you read the following, know and understand that Uranus is Cush and Cronus is Nimrod and is also Saturn.
Cronus or Kronos (Ancient Greek ??????, Krónos) was the leader and the youngest of the first generation of Titans, divine descendants of Gaea, the earth, and Uranus, the sky. He overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own sons, Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon, and imprisoned in Tartarus.
Cronus was usually depicted with a sickle, which was also the weapon he used to castrate and depose Uranus, his father. In Athens, on the twelfth day of the Attic month of Hekatombaion, a festival called Kronia was held in honor of Cronus to celebrate the harvest, suggesting that, as a result of his association with the virtuous Golden Age, Cronus continued to preside as a patron of harvest. Cronus was also identified in classical antiquity with the Roman deity Saturn.
Here is a reference to the “12 days of Christmas” in case you did not catch it. Some of you may recall the articles I did on how Nimrod attacked and castrated His father Cush. You can read about this in the following articles:
Here is the heart of the matter… ?Uranus hated his offspring and as soon as they were born he shut them up in the depths of the Earth. Angry because her children were imprisoned, Gaea decided to take revenge against her husband. She made steel and fashioned a sharp sickle. Then she released Cronus the youngest Titan and encouraged him to castrate his father and rule in his place.
When Uranus came to lie with Gaia that night, Cronus, armed with a sickle, cut off his father’s testicles and threw them into the sea. From the wound black blood dropped. The drops seeped into the earth, fertilized Gaia and she gave birth to the Erinves the Giants and to the ash-tree Nymphs. The Meliads Uranus’ discarded genitals broke into a white foam from which was born a young goddess, Aphrodite .
Cronus? the Titan, the youngest son of Uranus and Gaea, became the ruler of the universe after castrating his father. He married his sister Rhea who gave him three daughters- Hestia, Demeter and Hera, as well as three sons: Hades, Poseidon and Zeus.
Cronus lived in fear that he would be dethroned by one of his children as an oracle had predicted, so he swallowed each of his children as it was born. When she was pregnant with Zeus, Rhea asked her parents, Uranus and Gaea, to help her save the child. On their advice she went to Crete and there, in a deep cavern, she gave birth to Zeus. There Rhea wrapped up a stone in swaddling clothes and gave it to Cronus who swallowed it. Gaea took the newborn baby and undertook to bring it up.
The oracle which had predicted to Cronus that he would be overthrown by one of his sons had not lied. As soon as Zeus reached manhood, he wanted to seize power from Cronus. Metis, daughter of Oceanus, gave him a drug which made Cronus vomit up the children whom he had swallowed. Together with his brothers and sisters, Zeus attacked Cronus and the Titans, The outcome of the ten year war was Zeus’ victory. The Titans were expelled from Heaven and locked up in Tartarus.
According to Hesiod, there was a golden race at the time when Cronus was ruling in heaven. People in those days lived free from worries and safe from grief and distress. They remained eternally young. They had no need to work. When the time came for them to die, they went peacefully to sleep. This race vanished from the Earth in the reign of Zeus and the Golden Age continued on the Islands of the Blessed, where Cronus was sent later, after reconciliation with Zeus.
Cronus is sometimes identified with Chronus the “personification of time.” Zeus, in this version of the story, is Shem and His ten year battle with Nimrod. Chronus is also known as Father Time and as such is Uranus and Cush. Cronus is the new baby at New Years and is the one to replace Father Time. Cronus is Nimrod who castrated his father and took over the reign of his empire.
We have the following also to draw on:
Saturn was a malicious god who was overthrown by his son, Jupiter (Gr. Zeus), whence he established a Golden Age on earth.?The Mythology Dictionary describes the brutal disposition of Saturn:?“The titan Saturn (equated with the Greek Cronus) castrated his father, hated his children, devoured them, and was castrated and overthrown by his son Zeus. After his defeat, Saturn ruled over the Golden Age of the world; according to Roman mythology, he fled to the west and brought a new golden time to Italy. Originally Saturn was an old Italic deity of the harvest; the Roman’s built a temple to Saturn on the Capitoline hill and each December celebrated the winter planting with the Saturnalia, a time of revelry and the giving of presents. Saturnalia today denotes a period of unrestrained or orgiastic revelry. Saturn gives his name to the sixth planet from the sun, the second largest planet in the solar system after Jupiter. …a saturnine temperament…is…gloomy or melancholy, characteristics of the god who castrated his father and was overthrown. Saturnian simply means pertaining to the god or the planet Saturn. The planet Saturn was also associated with the element lead, and so the term for lead poisoning is saturnism.” (1047)
At the Roman Saturnalia was celebrated each year the overthrow of the Atlantean god Saturn (Gr. Chronos) by the god Jupiter (Gr. Zeus) and return to the Golden Age of Atlantis. John King, author of The Celtic Druid’s Year, explains:?“The Roman festival dedicated to Saturn, the Saturnalia, began on 19 December. It celebrated the overthrow of the old father-god, Saturn, by the new, Jupiter or Deus-Pater (God the Father, although in our context he is actually God the Son). These gods have direct counterparts in Greek mythology (Chronos and Zeus) and in Celtic mythology (Bran and Bel or Belin)…” (270:133)
Genesis 10: 1 And this is the genealogy of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham and Yepheth. And sons were born to them after the flood.? 6 And the sons of ?am: Kush, and Mitsrayim, and Put, and Kena?an.?8 And Kush brought forth Nimro?, he began to be a mighty one on the earth.
Cush was one of the rebels and taught Nimrod many of the things he would aspire to. At some point in time Nimrod, (Saturn and Cronus) who was the younger one who attacked and castrated Cush, (also known as Uranus and Chronus) forcing him to leave the area and flee to what is now Africa. Some of his children then went to India.
Nimrod, over time, became known as both Chronus and Saturn. And it is from Chronus that we get the myth of Father Time. Although the texts tell you not to confuse Kronus and Chronus, they are in fact the same person; Nimrod with different myths that apply to each.
Chronus is also told to us by Hislop to be Cush. And so we have the blending of mythologies.
Chronos is usually portrayed through an old, wise man with a long, gray beard, such as “Father Time”. Some of the current English words whose etymological root is khronos/chronos include chronology, chronometer, chronic, anachronism, and chronicle.
Nimrod (or: Saturn) fled from Shem (or: Zeus) to the west and hid in what later became known today as Rome. We have today the Mountains of Nimrod in Northern Italy.
Knowing the myths that have sprung up from the stories of Nimrods life, let’s look at what is recorded about this type of behavior in other books that the Bible also makes reference to.
We shall read about the first years of Abraham in Jasher chapter 8- and note how Nimrod tries to have Abraham killed.
1. And it was in the night that Abram was born, that all the servants of Terah, and all the wise men of Nimrod, and his conjurors came and ate and drank in the house of Terah, and they rejoiced with him on that night.?2. And when all the wise men and conjurors went out from the house of Terah, they lifted up their eyes toward heaven that night to look at the stars, and they saw, and behold one very large star came from the east and ran in the heavens, and he swallowed up the four stars from the four sides of the heavens.?3. And all the wise men of the king and his conjurors were astonished at the sight, and the sages understood this matter, and they knew its import.?4. And they said to each other, This only betokens the child that has been born to Terah this night, who will grow up and be fruitful, and multiply, and possess all the earth, he and his children for ever, and he and his seed will slay great kings, and inherit their lands.?5. And the wise men and conjurors went home that night, and in the morning all these wise men and conjurors rose up early, and assembled in an appointed house.?6. And they spoke and said to each other, Behold the sight that we saw last night is hidden from the king, it has not been made known to him.?7. And should this thing get known to the king in the latter days, he will say to us, Why have you concealed this matter from me, and then we shall all suffer death; therefore, now let us go and tell the king the sight which we saw, and the interpretation thereof, and we shall then remain clear.?8. And they did so, and they all went to the king and bowed down to him to the ground, and they said, May the king live, may the king live.?9. We heard that a son was born to Terah the son of Nahor, the prince of thy host, and we yesternight came to his house, and we ate and drank and rejoiced with him that night.?10. And when thy servants went out from the house of Terah, to go to our respective homes to abide there for the night, we lifted up our eyes to heaven, and we saw a great star coming from the east, and the same star ran with great speed, and swallowed up four great stars, from the four sides of the heavens.?11. And thy servants were astonished at the sight which we saw, and were greatly terrified, and we made our judgment upon the sight, and knew by our wisdom the proper interpretation thereof, that this thing applies to the child that is born to Terah, who will grow up and multiply greatly, and become powerful, and kill all the kings of the earth, and inherit all their lands, he and his seed forever.?12. And now our lord and king, behold we have truly acquainted thee with what we have seen concerning this child.?13. If it seemeth good to the king to give his father value for this child, we will slay him before he shall grow up and increase in the land, and his evil increase against us, that we and our children perish through his evil.?14. And the king heard their words and they seemed good in his sight, and he sent and called for Terah, and Terah came before the king.?15. And the king said to Terah, I have been told that a son was yesternight born to thee, and after this manner was observed in the heavens at his birth.?16. And now therefore give me the child, that we may slay him before his evil springs up against us, and I will give thee for his value, thy house full of silver and gold.?17. And Terah answered the king and said to him: My Lord and king, I have heard thy words, and thy servant shall do all that his king desireth.?18. But my lord and king, I will tell thee what happened to me yesternight, that I may see what advice the king will give his servant, and then I will answer the king upon what he has just spoken; and the king said, Speak.?19. And Terah said to the king, Ayon, son of Mored, came to me yesternight, saying,?20. Give unto me the great and beautiful horse that the king gave thee, and I will give thee silver and gold, and straw and provender for its value; and I said to him, Wait till I see the king concerning thy words, and behold whatever the king saith, that will I do.?21. And now my lord and king, behold I have made this thing known to thee, and the advice which my king will give unto his servant, that will I follow.?22. And the king heard the words of Terah, and his anger was kindled and he considered him in the light of a fool.?23. And the king answered Terah, and he said to him, Art thou so silly, ignorant, or deficient in understanding, to do this thing, to give thy beautiful horse for silver and gold or even for straw and provender??24. Art thou so short of silver and gold, that thou shouldst do this thing, because thou canst not obtain straw and provender to feed thy horse? and what is silver and gold to thee, or straw and provender, that thou shouldst give away that fine horse which I gave thee, like which there is none to be had on the whole earth??25. And the king left off speaking, and Terah answered the king, saying, Like unto this has the king spoken to his servant;?26. I beseech thee, my lord and king, what is this which thou didst say unto me, saying, Give thy son that we may slay him, and I will give thee silver and gold for his value; what shall I do with silver and gold after the death of my son? who shall inherit me? surely then at my death, the silver and gold will return to my king who gave it.?27. And when the king heard the words of Terah, and the parable which he brought concerning the king, it grieved him greatly and he was vexed at this thing, and his anger burned within him.?28. And Terah saw that the anger of the king was kindled against him, and he answered the king, saying, All that I have is in the king’s power; whatever the king desireth to do to his servant, that let him do, yea, even my son, he is in the king’s power, without value in exchange, he and his two brothers that are older than he.?29. And the king said to Terah, No, but I will purchase thy younger son for a price.?30. And Terah answered the king, saying, I beseech thee my lord and king to let thy servant speak a word before thee, and let the king hear the word of his servant, and Terah said, Let my king give me three days’ time till I consider this matter within myself, and consult with my family concerning the words of my king; and he pressed the king greatly to agree to this.?31. And the king hearkened to Terah, and he did so and he gave him three days’ time, and Terah went out from the king’s presence, and he came home to his family and spoke to them all the words of the king; and the people were greatly afraid.?32. And it was in the third day that the king sent to Terah, saying, Send me thy son for a price as I spoke to thee; and shouldst thou not do this, I will send and slay all thou hast in thy house, so that thou shalt not even have a dog remaining.?33. And Terah hastened, (as the thing was urgent from the king), and he took a child from one of his servants, which his handmaid had born to him that day, and Terah brought the child to the king and received value for him.?34. And the Lord was with Terah in this matter, that Nimrod might not cause Abram’s death, and the king took the child from Terah and with all his might dashed his head to the ground, for he thought it had been Abram; and this was concealed from him from that day, and it was forgotten by the king, as it was the will of Providence not to suffer Abram’s death.?35. And Terah took Abram his son secretly, together with his mother and nurse, and he concealed them in a cave, and he brought them their provisions monthly.?36. And the Lord was with Abram in the cave and he grew up, and Abram was in the cave ten years, and the king and his princes, soothsayers and sages, thought that the king had killed Abram.
You have just read where Abraham, the Father of Isaac, Jacob and the 12 tribes of Israel, was going to be killed as a child by Nimrod.
We read in Exodus 1: 1 And these are the names of the children of Yisra’?l who came to Mitsrayim with Ya?aqo?, each one with his household: 2 Reuben, Shimhon, L?wi, and Yehuhah; 3 Yissashar, Zebulun, and Binyamin; 4 Dan and Naphtali, Ga? and Ash?r. 5 And all those who were descendants of Yahaqo? were seventy beings, as Yoseph was already in Mitsrayim. 6 And Yoseph died, and all his brothers, and all that generation. 7 And the children of Yisrael bore fruit and increased very much, multiplied and became very strong, and the land was filled with them. 8 Then a new sovereign arose over Mitsrayim, who did not know Yoseph, 9 and he said to his people, “See, the people of the children of Yisrael are more and stronger than we, 10 come, let us act wisely towards them, lest they increase, and it shall be when fighting befalls us, that they shall join our enemies and fight against us, and shall go up out of the land.” 11 So they set slave-masters over them to afflict them with their burdens, and they built for Pharaoh supply cities, Pithom and Ramamses. 12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they increased and grew, and they were in dread of the children of Yisrael. 13 And the Mitsrites made the children of Yisra’?l serve with harshness, 14 and they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick, and in all kinds of work in the field, all their work which they made them do was with harshness. 15 Then the sovereign of Mitsrayim spoke to the Hebrew midwives, of whom the name of one was Shiphrah and the name of the other Putah, 16 and he said, “When you deliver the Hebrew women, and see them on the birthstools, if it is a son, then you shall put him to death, but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.” 17 But the midwives feared Elohim, and did not do as the sovereign of Mitsrayim commanded them, and kept the male children alive. 18 So the sovereign of Mitsrayim called for the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this, and kept the male children alive?” 19 And the midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not like the Mitsrite women. For they are lively and give birth before the midwives come to them.” 20 So Elohim was good to the midwives, and the people increased and became very numerous. 21 And it came to be, because the midwives feared Elohim, that He provided households for them. 22 And Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, “Throw every son who is born into the river, and keep alive every daughter.”
Once again history repeats itself. Just as Nimrod sought to kill Abraham as a child and he also killed many other children, now Nimrods government system, which is here portrayed as Egypt, is also going to kill the Israelite Children. Out of this comes Moses. Remember how just a few weeks ago I showed you how the Christmas tree was used throughout history and was a theme that was repeated over and over and has now come down to us and is a prophecy. So, too, is this killing of the children by Nimrod.
Pay attention to what you are learning!!!
You all know the story very well.? When we read about all the curses that Moses brought on Egypt do you realize that Yehovah was showing them that each of the gods they worshiped were nothing at all? Yehovah was mocking the gods that the Egyptians worshiped. Again, just like when the babies were killed by the Egyptians harking back to Nimrod and Abraham, so is the mocking of the false gods harking back to a time when Abraham did the exact same thing.
You have been shown this once before in Jasher. Read it for yourself at:
1. And Nimrod son of Cush was still in the land of Shinar, and he reigned over it and dwelt there, and he built cities in the land of Shinar.?2. And these are the names of the four cities which he built, and he called their names after the occurrences that happened to them in the building of the tower.?3. And he called the first Babel, saying, Because the Lord there confounded the language of the whole earth; and the name of the second he called Erech, because from there God dispersed them.?4. And the third he called Eched, saying there was a great battle at that place; and the fourth he called Calnah, because his princes and mighty men were consumed there, and they vexed the Lord, they rebelled and transgressed against him.?5. And when Nimrod had built these cities in the land of Shinar, he placed in them the remainder of his people, his princes and his mighty men that were left in his kingdom.?6. And Nimrod dwelt in Babel, and he there renewed his reign over the rest of his subjects, and he reigned securely, and the subjects and princes of Nimrod called his name Amraphel, saying that at the tower his princes and men fell through his means.?7. And notwithstanding this, Nimrod did not return to the Lord, and he continued in wickedness and teaching wickedness to the sons of men; and Mardon, his son, was worse than his father, and continued to add to the abominations of his father.?8. And he caused the sons of men to sin, therefore it is said, From the wicked goeth forth wickedness.?9. At that time there was war between the families of the children of Ham, as they were dwelling in the cities which they had built.?10. And Chedorlaomer, king of Elam, went away from the families of the children of Ham, and he fought with them and he subdued them, and he went to the five cities of the plain and he fought against them and he subdued them, and they were under his control.?11. And they served him twelve years, and they gave him a yearly tax.?12. At that time died Nahor, son of Serug, in the forty-ninth year of the life of Abram son of Terah.?13. And in the fiftieth year of the life of Abram son of Terah, Abram came forth from the house of Noah, and went to his father’s house.?14. And Abram knew the Lord, and he went in his ways and instructions, and the Lord his God was with him.?15. And Terah his father was in those days, still captain of the host of king Nimrod, and he still followed strange gods.?16. And Abram came to his father’s house and saw twelve gods standing there in their temples, and the anger of Abram was kindled when he saw these images in his father’s house.?17. And Abram said, As the Lord liveth these images shall not remain in my father’s house; so shall the Lord who created me do unto me if in three days’ time I do not break them all.?18. And Abram went from them, and his anger burned within him. And Abram hastened and went from the chamber to his father’s outer court, and he found his father sitting in the court, and all his servants with him, and Abram came and sat before him.?19. And Abram asked his father, saying, Father, tell me where is God who created heaven and earth, and all the sons of men upon earth, and who created thee and me. And Terah answered his son Abram and said, Behold those who created us are all with us in the house.?20. And Abram said to his father, My lord, shew them to me I pray thee; and Terah brought Abram into the chamber of the inner court, and Abram saw, and behold the whole room was full of gods of wood and stone, twelve great images and others less than they without number.?21. And Terah said to his son, Behold these are they which made all thou seest upon earth, and which created me and thee, and all mankind.?22. And Terah bowed down to his gods, and he then went away from them, and Abram, his son, went away with him.?23. And when Abram had gone from them he went to his mother and sat before her, and he said to his mother, Behold, my father has shown me those who made heaven and earth, and all the sons of men.?24. Now, therefore, hasten and fetch a kid from the flock, and make of it savory meat, that I may bring it to my father’s gods as an offering for them to eat; perhaps I may thereby become acceptable to them.?25. And his mother did so, and she fetched a kid, and made savory meat thereof, and brought it to Abram, and Abram took the savory meat from his mother and brought it before his father’s gods, and he drew nigh to them that they might eat; and Terah his father, did not know of it.?26. And Abram saw on the day when he was sitting amongst them, that they had no voice, no hearing, no motion, and not one of them could stretch forth his hand to eat.?27. And Abram mocked them, and said, Surely the savory meat that I prepared has not pleased them, or perhaps it was too little for them, and for that reason they would not eat; therefore tomorrow I will prepare fresh savory meat, better and more plentiful than this, in order that I may see the result.?28. And it was on the next day that Abram directed his mother concerning the savory meat, and his mother rose and fetched three fine kids from the flock, and she made of them some excellent savory meat, such as her son was fond of, and she gave it to her son Abram; and Terah his father did not know of it.?29. And Abram took the savory meat from his mother, and brought it before his father’s gods into the chamber; and he came nigh unto them that they might eat, and he placed it before them, and Abram sat before them all day, thinking perhaps they might eat.?30. And Abram viewed them, and behold they had neither voice nor hearing, nor did one of them stretch forth his hand to the meat to eat.?31. And in the evening of that day in that house Abram was clothed with the spirit of God.?32. And he called out and said, Wo unto my father and this wicked generation, whose hearts are all inclined to vanity, who serve these idols of wood and stone which can neither eat, smell, hear nor speak, who have mouths without speech, eyes without sight, ears without hearing, hands without feeling, and legs which cannot move; like them are those that made them and that trust in them.?33. And when Abram saw all these things his anger was kindled against his father, and he hastened and took a hatchet in his hand, and came unto the chamber of the gods, and he broke all his father’s gods.?34. And when he had done breaking the images, he placed the hatchet in the hand of the great god which was there before them, and he went out; and Terah his father came home, for he had heard at the door the sound of the striking of the hatchet; so Terah came into the house to know what this was about.?35. And Terah, having heard the noise of the hatchet in the room of images, ran to the room to the images, and he met Abram going out.?36. And Terah entered the room and found all the idols fallen down and broken, and the hatchet in the hand of the largest, which was not broken, and the savory meat which Abram his son had made was still before them.?37. And when Terah saw this his anger was greatly kindled, and he hastened and went from the room to Abram.?38. And he found Abram his son still sitting in the house; and he said to him, What is this work thou hast done to my gods??39. And Abram answered Terah his father and he said, Not so my lord, for I brought savory meat before them, and when I came nigh to them with the meat that they might eat, they all at once stretched forth their hands to eat before the great one had put forth his hand to eat.?40. And the large one saw their works that they did before him, and his anger was violently kindled against them, and he went and took the hatchet that was in the house and came to them and broke them all, and behold the hatchet is yet in his hand as thou seest.?41. And Terah’s anger was kindled against his son Abram, when he spoke this; and Terah said to Abram his son in his anger, What is this tale that thou hast told? Thou speakest lies to me.?42. Is there in these gods spirit, soul or power to do all thou hast told me? Are they not wood and stone, and have I not myself made them, and canst thou speak such lies, saying that the large god that was with them smote them? It is thou that didst place the hatchet in his hands, and then sayest he smote them all.?43. And Abram answered his father and said to him, And how canst thou then serve these idols in whom there is no power to do any thing? Can those idols in which thou trustest deliver thee? can they hear thy prayers when thou callest upon them? can they deliver thee from the hands of thy enemies, or will they fight thy battles for thee against thy enemies, that thou shouldst serve wood and stone which can neither speak nor hear??44. And now surely it is not good for thee nor for the sons of men that are connected with thee, to do these things; are you so silly, so foolish or so short of understanding that you will serve wood and stone, and do after this manner??45. And forget the Lord God who made heaven and earth, and who created you in the earth, and thereby bring a great evil upon your souls in this matter by serving stone and wood??46. Did not our fathers in days of old sin in this matter, and the Lord God of the universe brought the waters of the flood upon them and destroyed the whole earth??47. And how can you continue to do this and serve gods of wood and stone, who cannot hear, or speak, or deliver you from oppression, thereby bringing down the anger of the God of the universe upon you??48. Now therefore my father refrain from this, and bring not evil upon thy soul and the souls of thy household.?49. And Abram hastened and sprang from before his father, and took the hatchet from his father’s largest idol, with which Abram broke it and ran away.?50. And Terah, seeing all that Abram had done, hastened to go from his house, and he went to the king and he came before Nimrod and stood before him, and he bowed down to the king; and the king said, What dost thou want??51. And he said, I beseech thee my lord, to hear me–Now fifty years back a child was born to me, and thus has he done to my gods and thus has he spoken; and now therefore, my lord and king, send for him that he may come before thee, and judge him according to the law, that we may be delivered from his evil.?52. And the king sent three men of his servants, and they went and brought Abram before the king. And Nimrod and all his princes and servants were that day sitting before him, and Terah sat also before them.?53. And the king said to Abram, What is this that thou hast done to thy father and to his gods? And Abram answered the king in the words that he spoke to his father, and he said, The large god that was with them in the house did to them what thou hast heard.?54. And the king said to Abram, Had they power to speak and eat and do as thou hast said? And Abram answered the king, saying, And if there be no power in them why dost thou serve them and cause the sons of men to err through thy follies??55. Dost thou imagine that they can deliver thee or do anything small or great, that thou shouldst serve them? And why wilt thou not sense the God of the whole universe, who created thee and in whose power it is to kill and keep alive??56. 0 foolish, simple, and ignorant king, woe unto thee forever.?57. I thought thou wouldst teach thy servants the upright way, but thou hast not done this, but hast filled the whole earth with thy sins and the sins of thy people who have followed thy ways.?58. Dost thou not know, or hast thou not heard, that this evil which thou doest, our ancestors sinned therein in days of old, and the eternal God brought the waters of the flood upon them and destroyed them all, and also destroyed the whole earth on their account? And wilt thou and thy people rise up now and do like unto this work, in order to bring down the anger of the Lord God of the universe, and to bring evil upon thee and the whole earth??59. Now therefore put away this evil deed which thou doest, and serve the God of the universe, as thy soul is in his hands, and then it will be well with thee.?60. And if thy wicked heart will not hearken to my words to cause thee to forsake thy evil ways, and to serve the eternal God, then wilt thou die in shame in the latter days, thou, thy people and all who are connected with thee, hearing thy words or walking in thy evil ways.?61. And when Abram had ceased speaking before the king and princes, Abram lifted up his eyes to the heavens, and he said, The Lord seeth all the wicked, and he will judge them.
You will want to read chapter 12 as well.
Where else do you read of Yehovah mocking the pagan gods? In the book of Exodus.
Paul teaches us that the Old Testament was written for our instruction:
Rom. 15:4: For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
1 Cor. 10:11: Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.
Judging the gods of the People:
A close examination of the Old Testament texts reveals a familiar pattern in the manner in which God deals with the nations. When God acts in judgment, He frequently judges the gods of the nation he is judging.
Example: Egypt. The ten plagues in Egypt were judgment upon the gods of the Egyptians.
Ex 12:12-13: “For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike down all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments – I am the LORD.
Ex 18:10-11: He said, “Praise be to the LORD, who rescued you from the hand of the Egyptians and of Pharaoh, and who rescued the people from the hand of the Egyptians. Now I know that the LORD is greater than all other gods, for he did this to those who had treated Israel arrogantly.”
The ten plagues in Egypt were actually judgments against the pagan deities of the Egyptians:
Egypt’s gods and Yehovah’s Judgments:
Hapi (Nile) ………………… Turned to blood
Rah (sun god) …………… Darkness
Apis (bull) …………………. Murrain (pestilence or plague affecting domestic animals)
Heckt (frog) ………………… Frog infestation
Insects …………………… Lice, locusts, beetles
Shu (atmosphere) ………. Hail and fire
Imhotep (healing) ….…… Boils
Osiris (life) ……………… Death of the first born
They worshiped the Nile, so God turned it to blood. They worship Rah, the sun god, so God covered the land with darkness. They worshiped Apis the bull and Hathor the cow goddess, so God killed their livestock. They worshiped Heckt (represented by a frog), so God filled the land with frogs. They worshiped insects and beetles, so God sent an infestation of flies and insects.
The Bible clearly states that the plagues were God’s judgment upon the idols of Egypt:
Num 33:3-4: And they journeyed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the next day after the Passover the sons of Israel started out boldly in the sight of all the Egyptians, while the Egyptians were burying all their first-born whom the LORD had struck down among them. The LORD had also executed judgments on their gods.
2 Sam 7:22-24: “How great you are, O Sovereign LORD! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears. And who is like your people Israel-the one nation on earth that God went out to redeem as a people for himself, and to make a name for himself, and to perform great and awesome wonders by driving out nations and their gods from before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt?
Dagon of the Philistines: 1 Sam 5:3: When the people of Ashdod rose early the next day, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the ark of the LORD! They took Dagon and put him back in his place.
The God’s of the Arameans: 1 Kings 20:23: Now the servants of the king of Aram said to him, “Their gods are gods of the mountains, therefore they were stronger than we; but rather let us fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they. Then a man of God came near and spoke to the king of Israel and said, “Thus says the LORD, ‘Because the Arameans have said,” The LORD is a god of the mountains, but He is not a god of the valleys “;therefore I will give all this great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the LORD.’”
Baal in the Days of Elijah: 1 Kings 18: no rain or dew. Baal was the god of rain.
Bel [Marduk] and Nebo, gods of Babylon
Isa 46:1-2?1 Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: your carriages were heavy loaden; they are a burden to the weary beast.?2 They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity.
This familiar theme in scripture seems to suggest a “modus operandi” for God’s judgment:
Jer 43:12-13: He will set fire to the temples of the gods of Egypt; he will burn their temples and take their gods captive. As a shepherd wraps his garment around him, so will he wrap Egypt around himself and depart from there unscathed. There in the temple of the sun in Egypt he will demolish the sacred pillars and will burn down the temples of the gods of Egypt.’”
Jer 46:25: The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, says, “Behold, I am going to punish Amon of Thebes, and Pharaoh, and Egypt along with her gods and her kings, even Pharaoh and those who trust in him.
Zeph 2:11: The LORD will be awesome to them when he destroys all the gods of the land. The nations on every shore will worship him, every one in its own land.
Isa 19:1: An oracle concerning Egypt: See, the LORD rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt. The idols of Egypt tremble before him, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt within them.
Jer 51:17-18: “Every man is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed by his idols. His images are a fraud; they have no breath in them. They are worthless, the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish.
If Yehovah’s judgment falls today in a manner similar to this, can there be any question as to which of America’s gods He will judge first? The principle deity of America is Mammon! Unfortunately, Mammon has become the principle deity of the church as well.
If Yehovah’s judgment follows the pattern of Scripture, then He will judge America’s gods and His judgment will fall first on the nation’s economy.
A Final Word from Psalms 78: 41-55 – DON’T FORGET GOSHEN
41 Again and again they put God to the test; they vexed the Holy One of Israel.?42 They did not remember his power – the day he redeemed them from the oppressor, 43 the day he displayed his miraculous signs in Egypt, his wonders in the region of Zoan.?44 He turned their rivers to blood; they could not drink from their streams.?45 He sent swarms of flies that devoured them, and frogs that devastated them.?46 He gave their crops to the grasshopper, their produce to the locust.?47 He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamore-figs with sleet.?48 He gave over their cattle to the hail, their livestock to bolts of lightning.?49 He unleashed against them his hot anger, his wrath, indignation and hostility – a band of destroying angels.?50 He prepared a path for his anger; he did not spare them from death but gave them over to the plague.?51 He struck down all the firstborn of Egypt, the first fruits of manhood in the tents of Ham.?52 But he brought his people out like a flock; he led them like sheep through the desert.?53 He guided them safely, so they were unafraid; but the sea engulfed their enemies.?54 Thus he brought them to the border of his holy land, to the hill country his right hand had taken.?55 He drove out nations before them and allotted their lands to them as an inheritance; he settled the tribes of Israel in their homes.
Yehovah made a clear distinction between Egypt and Israel. It is time for believers to be His distinct people. We are not to fear what others fear. We are not to trust in flesh. We are not to trust in the politicians- Democrats or Republicans.
Blessed is the man whose trust is in Yehovah! It is time to break the spirit of fear and walk in joy and confidence, anchored in a steadfast confidence in our Elohim.
If we’re living in the same spirit of fear and worry that is in the world, what kind of witness is that? What kind of faith is that? We must get our eyes off the judgments and the plagues and remember Goshen.
You have now read how Yehovah throughout history repeats Himself and destroys the false god as He executes judgment on the nations. You have read how Nimrod killed the babies and then you read how Pharaoh did the same thing. You will also know that King Herod also did this same type of butchery in Mathew 2: 1 And ????? having been born in B?yth Le?em of Yehu?ah in the days of Herodes the sovereign, see, Magi from the East came to Yerushalayim, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been born Sovereign of the Yehu?im? For we saw His star in the East and have come to do reverence to Him.” 3 And Herodes the sovereign, having heard, was troubled, and all Yerushalayim with him. 4 And having gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 And they said to him, “In B?yth Le?em of Yehu?ah, for thus it has been written by the prophet, 6 ‘But you, B?yth Le?em, in the land of Yehu?ah, you are by no means least among the rulers of Yehu?ah, for out of you shall come a Ruler who shall shepherd My people Yisra’?l.’ ”1 Footnote: 1Mic. 5:2. 7 Then Herodes, having called the Magi secretly, learned exactly from them what time the star appeared. 8 And having sent them to B?yth Le?em, he said, “Go and search diligently for the Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, so that I too might go and do reverence to Him.” 9 And having heard the sovereign, they went. And see, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, until it came and stood over where the Child was. 10 And seeing the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. 11 And coming into the house, they saw the Child with Miryam His mother, and fell down and did reverence to Him, and opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream that they should not return to Herodes, they departed for their own country by another way. 13 And when they had left, see, a messenger of ???? appeared to Yos?ph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the Child and His mother, and flee to Mitsrayim, and remain there until I bring you word, for Herodes is about to seek the Child to destroy Him.” 14 And rising up, he took the Child and His mother by night and departed for Mitsrayim, 15 and remained there until the death of Herodes, to fill what was spoken by ???? through the prophet, saying, “Out of Mitsrayim I have called My Son.”1 Footnote:1Ex. 4:22-23, Hos. 11:1, Rev. 21:7 16 Then Herodes, having seen that he was fooled by the Magi, was greatly enraged, and he sent forth and slew all the male children in B?yth Le?em and in all its borders, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had exactly learnt from the Magi. 17 Then was filled what was spoken by Yirmeyahu the prophet, saying, 18 “A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing and weeping, and great mourning – Ra??l weeping for her children, refusing to be comforted, because they were no more.”
Each time Yehovah is about to move in a big way Satan tries to thwart it by killing the children. He did this when Abraham was born, He did this when Moses was born and he did it when Yehshua was born. In Moses time Yehovah repaid Pharaoh by having the first born of Egypt killed on Passover. Stop and think on this. This is very important. Stop and think about what you have just read.
We are currently in the third Sabbatical cycle of this the last and final Jubilee cycle. It is the cycle which Lev 26 tells us He is going to rob us of our children.
LEv. 26:21 ‘And if you walk contrary to Me, and refuse to obey Me, I shall bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins, 22 and send wild beasts among you, which shall bereave you of your children. And I shall cut off your livestock, and make you few in number, and your highways shall be deserted.In the fourth cycle will come the sword to North America by Babylon; that is a United European Union led by Germany allied with the Muslim nations of the Middle East and North Africa. The fifth Sabbatical cycle comes after that one. It is written to you in verse 27-30. We read of it in Lev 26:23 ‘And if you are not instructed by Me by these, but walk contrary to Me, 24 then I also shall walk contrary to you, and I Myself shall smite you seven times for your sins. 25 ‘And I shall bring against you a sword executing the vengeance of My covenant, and you shall gather together in your cities, and I shall send pestilence among you, and you shall be given into the hand of the enemy. 26 ‘When I have cut off your supply of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall bring back to you your bread by weight, and you shall eat and not be satisfied. 27 ‘And if in spite of this, you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me, 28 then I shall walk contrary to you in wrath. And I Myself shall punish you seven times for your sins. 29 ‘And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and eat the flesh of your daughters. 30 ‘And I shall destroy your high places, and cut down your sun-pillars, and put your carcasses on the carcasses of your idols. And My being shall loathe you.
This is written to Israel; not the nations, but Israel. So pay close attention! YOU ARE GOING TO EAT THE FLESH OF YOUR OWN CHILDREN if you do not repent and turn from this pagan worship to Molech and Nimrod and Saturn and Cronus which is done at this time of the year in the form of Christmas and New Years celebrations.
Yehovah warned us of this before when Jerusalem fell in 586 BC. We read of it in Lamentations 4:10; Josephus tells us it happened in 70 AD again when Jerusalem fell. It happened in the concentration camps in Germany and it is going to happen again in your lifetime.
What you consider fun and party times and good family times Yehovah is going to show you what these times really were and you will eat your own flesh of your own children and He will make you so sick of this celebration that you will never ever want to be a part of it again so that you will forget it.
Notice that while Yehovah says you will be eating the flesh of you own children He is going to also be destroying your high places of worship and sun pillars. Your churches with their steeples which are a reminder of the penis of Nimrod.
If you read Lev 26:14, near the end you will see that Yehovah sends the same curses over and over again. So when He again warns you in Deuteronomy 28 it is the same curses. 27 “???? shall smite you with the boils of Mitsrayim, with tumours, with the scab, and with the itch, from which you are unable to be healed. 28 “???? shall smite you with madness and blindness and bewilderment of heart. 29 “And you shall be groping at noon, as a blind man gropes in darkness, and not prosper in your ways. And you shall be only oppressed and plundered all the days, with no one to save you. 30 “You become engaged to a wife, but another man does lie with her. You build a house, but do not dwell in it. You plant a vineyard, but do not use its fruit. 31 “Your ox is slaughtered before your eyes, but you do not eat of it. Your donkey is violently taken from before you, and it is not given back to you. Your sheep are given to your enemies, with no one to save them. 32 “Your sons and your daughters are given to another people, and your eyes look and fail for them all day long, and your hand powerless. 33 “A people whom you have not known eat the fruit of your land and all your labours. And you shall be only oppressed and crushed all the days. 34 “And you shall be maddened because of the sight which your eyes see. 35 “???? smites you in the knees and on the legs with evil boils of which you are unable to be healed, and from the sole of your foot to the top of your head. 36 “???? brings you and the sovereign whom you set over you to a nation which neither you nor your fathers have known, and there you shall serve other mighty ones, wood and stone. 37 “Thus you shall become an astonishment, a proverb, and a mockery among all the peoples to which ???? drives you. 38 “You take much seed out into the field but gather little in, for the locust consumes it. 39 “You plant vineyards, and shall labour, but you neither drink of the wine nor gather, for the worm eats it. 40 “You have olive trees in all your border, but do not anoint with oil, for your olives drop off. 41 “You bring forth sons and daughters, but they are not with you, for they go into captivity. 42 “Locusts possess all your trees and the fruit of your ground. 43 “The sojourner who is among you rises higher and higher above you, but you come down lower and lower. 44 “He lends to you, but you do not lend to him. He is the head, and you are the tail. 45 “And all these curses shall come upon you, and they shall pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of ???? your Elohim, to guard His commands and His laws which He commanded you. 46 “And they shall be upon you for a sign and for a wonder, and on your seed, forever. 47 “Because you did not serve ???? your Elohim with joy and gladness of heart for all the plenty, 48 you shall serve your enemies whom ???? sends against you, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in need of all. And he shall put a yoke of iron on your neck until he has destroyed you. 49 “???? brings a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you shall not understand, 50 a fierce-looking nation, which shows no regard for the elderly nor show favour to the young, 51 and they shall eat the fruit of your livestock and the fruit of your land, until you are destroyed. They leave you no grain, nor new wine, nor oil, nor the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you. 52 “And they shall besiege you at all your gates till your high and fenced walls, in which you are trusting, come down in all your land. And they shall besiege you at all your gates in all your land which ???? your Elohim has given you. 53 “And you shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom ???? your Elohim has given you, in the siege and distress in which your enemies distress you. 54 “The man among you who is tender, and who is very delicate, his eye is evil against his brother, against the wife of his bosom, and against the rest of his children whom he leaves behind, 55 against giving any of them the flesh of his children that he eats, because it is all that has been left to him in the siege and distress with which your enemy distresses you in all your gates. 56 “The tender and the delicate woman among you, who have not tried to set the sole of her foot on the ground because of her delicateness and tenderness, her eye is evil against the husband of her bosom, and against her son, and against her daughter, 57 and against her seed which comes out from between her feet, and her children whom she bears, for she eats them in secret for lack of all, in the siege and distress with which your enemy distresses you in all your gates. 58 “If you do not guard to do all the Words of this Torah that are written in this book, to fear this esteemed and awesome Name, ???? your Elohim, 59 then ???? shall bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues, great and lasting plagues, and grievous and lasting sicknesses. 60 “And He shall bring back on you all the diseases of Mitsrayim, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you, 61 also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this Torah, ???? does bring upon you until you are destroyed.
From The Two Babylons, by Alexander Hislop, page 232: “And it was a principle of the Mosaic law, a principle no doubt derived from the patriarchal faith, that the priest must partake of whatever was offered as a sin-offering (Numbers xviii. 9, 10). But this practice was twisted by the Priest of Baal; Hence, the priests… were necessarily required to eat of the human sacrifices; and thus it has come to pass that ‘Cahna-Bal,’ the ‘Priest of Baal,’ is the established word in our own tongue for a devourer of human flesh.”
We get the word “cannibal” from the priests of Baal eating what was sacrificed on their alters and the meat that they ate was the children that were burned alive on that altar at this very time of year. No wonder Christmas is for children.
Moloch, Molech, Molekh, or Molek, representing Hebrew ??? mlk, (translated directly into king) is the name of a god and the name of a particular kind of sacrifice associated historically with that god in cultures throughout the Middle East, including but not limited to the Jewish, Egyptian, Caananite, Phoenician and related cultures in North Africa and the Levant.
Moloch went by many names including, but not limited to, Ba’al, Moloch, Apis Bull, Golden Calf, Chemosh, as well as many other names, and was widely worshiped in the Middle East and wherever Punic culture extended (including, but not limited to, the Ammonites, Edomites and the Moabites). Baal Moloch was conceived under the form of a calf or an ox or depicted as a man with the head of a bull.
(Nimrod was depicted with the head of a Bull and the body of a man and the lower legs of a Bull. The myth of Europa riding a Bull who takes her to Crete and seduces her is Nimrod who is seducing the whore Astarte and this image is depicted in front of the European headquarters in Brussels.)
Hadad, Baal or simply “the King” identified the god within his cult. The name “Moloch” is the name he was known by among his worshipers, but is a Hebrew translation. (MLK has been found on stele at the infant necropolis in Carthage.) The written form ????? Moloch (in the Septuagint Greek translation of the Old Testament), or Molech (Hebrew), is the word Melech or king, transformed by interposing the vowels of bosheth or ’shameful thing’.
The Golden Calf (Moloch) Idol? : The Molech idol was a large, hollow brass statue with the head of a bull and the bulging belly of a man. It was designed like an old fashioned pot-bellied stove, with the belly as the firebox.
A child sacrifice, laid on the hands, would roll into the fire in the belly cavity. Scripture describes this practice as ‘passing through the fire to Molech,’ Leviticus 18:21.
Cleitarchus, an ancient historian, around 315 BC, gives this description of a fire god at Carthage. (Kronos is the north African name for Molech):
“There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall upon the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier.”
Diodorus Siculus, 90-30 BC, gives this description of a Carthaginian fire god.
“There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire.”
Plutarch, AD 46-127, senior priest of the oracle at Delphi, gives this description of the fire god.
“The whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing [of the children being sacrificed] should not reach the ears of the people.”
Molech worship is essentially identical with worship of Chemosh of Moab, Cronos-Cronos of Carthage and Melkart-Melqart of Tyre. The general name, used throughout Palestine and in the Bible, for this type of fire god was Baal.
It has long been known that Carthage was founded by the “Phoenicians.” We know it as Carthage because of the Greco-Roman term for it. Its original name was Hebrew. Many historians have commented on the Hebrew nature of Carthage’s “Punic” language and customs. Carthage began as an Israelite colony, and received numerous Israelite refugees when Israel fell. The Greeks wrote that Carthage had a secret colony west of the Atlantic to which they sent large expeditions of colonists, and many Carthaginian inscriptions and artifacts have been found in North America. Carthage was very rich and almost destroyed Rome under Hannibal, but moral degeneracy led to its collapse.
http://jewsandjoes.com/israelites-and-phoenicians.html ?Carthage, a Phoenician colony, was well known for their Ba’al worship. Some even believe Jezebel was the great aunt of Queen Dido, the founder of Carthage.
About 130 years after the fall of Samaria Carthage is flourishing and so is the worship of Baal. Carthage is where many Israelites fled to before Samaria fell and now it is known as the Leading city of Molech worship. The Romans defeated Carthage in 146 BC and were so full of hate that they salted the earth so nothing would grow there.
King Solomon, Initiated by his love of “foreign” women as wives and concubines, established shrines for the worship of pagan gods about “high places” or hilltops (1 Kings 11:1-7). Two pagan gods were particularly detestable, Chemosh the pagan god of the Moabites and Molech the pagan god of the Ammonites, because their worship called for the sacrifice of infants.
Topheth, meaning “place of fire,” was a site of worship for Molech; however, it’s primitive root word “toph” meant “playing or beating a percussion instrument such as a timbrel, tambourine, or drum”. Scholars believe that it was possible that percussion instruments were used to drown out the sounds of infants as they were burned alive.
The Gehena Valley, Once called the Valley of the son of Hinnom, possibly naming the original owner, the Valley of Hinnom is a deep ravine west and south of Jerusalem, and today it is known as Wadi Jehennam or Wadi er Rubeb. Believed to be located in the southeast region of the valley of Hinnom, Topheth occupied a “high place” and was the site of worship of the Ammonite god Molech.
The Bible states that King Ahaz of Judah, the 12th king from King Solomon, sacrificed his own sons to Molech in his attempt to seek military aid from the pagan god (2 Kings 16:1-3).
King Manasseh of Judah, the 14th king from King Solomon, was also an evil king. Like King Ahaz, King Manasseh sacrificed his own sons by burning them to death in the worship of Molech (2 Kings 21:1-6, 2 Chronicles 33:1-6).
King Josiah of Judah, the 16th king from King Solomon, was a godly king and in his reforms, abolished all idol worship, pagan priests, destroyed pagan shrines and specifically destroyed Topheth (2 Kings 23:1-14, 2 Chronicles 34:3-7). By spreading human bones about, King Josiah defiled the former high places of idol worship and rendered them ceremonially unclean. It is not known if King Josiah was entirely successful as Jeremiah makes repeated calls against Topheth (Jer 19:1-6; 32:35). However, in time, the Valley of Hinnom became a garbage dump for the city of Jerusalem receiving waste, refuse and unclean objects such as the bodies of dead animals and executed criminals. Fires within the dump were promoted to reduce the garbage that collected.
Here we are now in 2010 and the world around us as well as Israel, the USA and UK nations known as the Ten Lost tribes are still worshiping Nimrod in the form of Santa Claus and as Father Time at News Years. Nothing has changed.
You have read how Nimrod attempted to kill Abraham. You have read how Pharaoh attempted to kill the first born of Israel and Moses escaped. You then read how the firstborn of Egypt were killed at Passover. Then you read how King Herod tried to kill Yehshua when He was born and many babies died at that time in Bethlehem. Yet in all of this, even today as you read this, Israelites and the rest of the world are taking part in this worship which began with the killing of babies.
As we come to that time when you will be in captivity, Yehovah is going to place you in a position where you will see others so hungry they will eat their own children in front of you. Yehovah is going to make sure that you detest this time of year. The question is- when you are sitting there starving in those camps or when you are alone, will you eat the meat of the children that will be killed? Will you pass your children through the fire? Will you continue to celebrate this most evil time of the year with Christmas and New Years revelry? Or will you mourn how far we, as Israelites, have gotten from our Creator? Do you, as a Christian who practices these rituals to Saturn of killing the children which now has been turned into a celebration; will you continue to try to convert Jews to this horrid teaching?
It is high time we all got back to the keeping the Torah and it alone. The only Holy Days Yehovah tells us to keep are found in Lev 23. Read these and do them and no others.
Soon the ropes on Saturn are going to be loosened, and then you are going to witness the worst time in human history. A time so bad that, unless the Messiah stepped in and stopped it, no flesh would be saved alive.
