The Gods of Egypt
Continuing Shame of Israel
Contours of the Coming Counterfeit Kingdom

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 YHWH. Exodus 12:12 (emphasis added)
When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, “Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” And he received the gold from their hand and fashioned it with a graving tool and made a golden calf. And they said, “These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!” Exodus 32:1,4 (emphasis added)
As for you, son of man, thus says the Lord God: Speak to the birds of every sort and to all beasts of the field: ‘Assemble and come, gather from all around to the sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you, a great sacrificial feast on the mountains of Israel, and you shall eat flesh and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of the mighty ones <Gibborim>, and drink the blood of the princes <Sarim> of the earth—of rams, of lambs, and of he-goats, of bulls, all of them fat beasts of Bashan. And you shall eat fat till you are filled, and drink blood till you are drunk, at the sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you. And you shall be filled at my table with horses and charioteers, with mighty men and all kinds of warriors,’ declares the Lord God. ‘And I will set my glory among the nations, and all the nations shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid on them. The house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God, from that day forward. And the nations shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity, because they dealt so treacherously with me that I hid my face from them and gave them into the hand of their adversaries, and they all fell by the sword. I dealt with them according to their uncleanness and their transgressions, and hid my face from them.’ Ezekiel 39:17-24 (emphasis and double emphasis added)

How can it be that Israel was told to leave their idols behind, and were able to witness the victory of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob over the gods of Egypt, and still fashion a likeness of an Egyptian god [idol]?
A more timely question might be, how can Christendom, the end-time Israel be told to have no idols of any kind, to have no gods before the Most High <Elyon> and Father of Jesus Christ, and yet they find themselves continually fashioning a golden calf, another god of this world, that they mistake for the God of Israel?
I’m sorry but that is just a lot of the same old bull. We are up against a deep ongoing abomination and shame before the Lord that has never been discontinued, enduring through the wilderness
“Did you bring to me sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel? You have borne the tent of your Moloch, and Kiyyun your star-god—your images that you made for yourselves, and I will send you into exile beyond Damascus,” says the Lord, whose name is the God of hosts. Amos 5:25-27
And during the time when Jeremiah was prophesying in Judah, again they were claiming the Lord <YHWH> and calling upon the Host of Heaven.
The houses of Jerusalem and the houses of the kings of Judah—all the houses on whose roofs offerings have been offered to all the host of heaven, and drink offerings have been poured out to other gods—shall be defiled like the place of Topheth.’” Jeremiah 19:13 (emphasis added)
While one might simply say we are seeing the mystery of iniquity at work in the physical Israel, much like Paul saw it at work in Christ’s ekklesia and wrote about it, and as we see it coming to fullness in Christendom today, there are many more layers of depth to all of this war in the gates where the stars are fighting. The cosmology and theogony of scripture is part of the secrets which God has hidden so that those with the heart of kings may bring them out and teach as they did in the house of David. It takes a Job poet, an Asaph, an Isaiah, and a David, and the rest of the company of prophets to detail the population of stars and gods in our physical heavens and the creatures on our physical earth and to relate the spiritual events lying behind them in realms of spirit.
But what is the salvific value of any of this particularly when we know salvation is linked with believing the voice of the Logos and following Him in love and obedience, doing what we know to be right at every moment? It is relevant because the greatest counterfeit show of all time is soon to open upon the stage of planet earth, and the subtle subterfuge laminated into the teachings of demons, be they of the masons or Trinitarians or Arians or New Age religion, will be there as a temptation and will require the proper response and choice if one is to avoid sin, the wages for which will be death – and not solely a physical one. The knowledge of the great deception and the element of Egypt in it is germane to what has continued in our midst from the time of Moses until today, and it is the reason that John wrote in Revelation 11:8 about the great city which is mystically called ‘Egypt.’ These were the gods which Egypt knew, gods who had their homes in the stars, and would come back to gather their own seed. And Christians better be able to tell the difference between God and the gods better than Israel was able to distinguish between the Lord and a golden calf. And therein lies the prophetic side of that history, for the people will choose those gods again – “new gods were chosen” (Judges 5:8 emphasis added).
To recover the story that has been hidden so that all might be deceived by the Devil [Revelation 12], those who truly seek the truth must be open to look in less likely places, like some of the extrabiblical witnesses, secular voices, and within the hypertextuality of our own times wherein we find the ongoing shame [Heb. ‘bosheth’] of the gods of our heavens, the waters [peoples] that were separated to be below the firmament <raqiya> or vault of our physical heavens from those that were separated to be above the firmament, or in the realm of spirit (Gen. 1:7). It is likewise, the ongoing shame of the people of God, both the physical Israel and the spiritual, to be entranced by the counterfeit gods, who are not creators, but creation. Yet the multiple witnesses are found intertextually in scripture as well.
Thus you shall say to them, “The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under the heavens.” Jeremiah 10:11
So it will happen in that day,
That the Lord will punish the host of the height in the height,
And the kings of the earth on earth.
And they will be gathered together
Prisoners in the dungeon
And will be confined in prison;
And after many days they will be punished.
Then the moon will be abashed
And the sun ashamed.
For the Lord of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
And His glory will be before His elders. (Isa 24:21-23, emphasis added)
Finally, we behold this vision fulfilled as John describes it in Rev. 4-6; and as the twenty-four Elders are seen before the Ancient of Days, so do the Elders of Christ’s ekklesia or church, dwell in His glory and bow before Him.
Christians are under the misapprehension that Israel was a primitive people and that is why they were able to witness their own deliverance by the Lord of Hosts and still fashion an idol of gold, and one of an animal image at that. The actual reality of the mindset of ancient Israel was far more complicated by the milieu from which they had emerged. If there arose a pharaoh that knew not Joseph, then there grew to be a people that knew not the God of Joseph.
More seriously shocking than the shadow of the spiritual reality cast in the history of God’s people in their exodus out of Egypt, is the current love affair with Egypt, and the presence of her beliefs, so deeply held by many new age believers, by all of the secret societies, particularly those masonic based ones – and one can include the LDS church in that group — and even in the mainstream of Christianity where resurrection is a reality one encounters at death rather than on the day of judgment. There is more in common between The Book of Breathings, an ancient Egyptian mystery writing that can be found in the Joseph Smith papyri – and revered by the LDS church membership – and Christian thinking today than believers would be willing to accept. Those “mysteries” live today in much of the ritual and belief in Christendom as well, not just in the LDS church. In fact, Christian pastors and laity would do well to remember Isaiah’s stern warning about the realm of the dead.
Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the realm of the dead <Sheol> will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it. Isaiah 28:18
And it is precisely at this point that we need to turn to extrabiblical evidence to understand the thinking of those people of God, being ensconced as they were in the cosmology and theogony of the land of the Mizraim, Egypt. In the land where they were born, there were many gods, and stars that were the mountains of these gods, or their seats of authority. The Book of Going Forth by Day, commonly known as The Egyptian Book of the Dead contains much of the imagery and referents, which when read in concert with the astronomical and theogonic sections of Job [chapters 38-41], Amos 5, Judges 6, Psalm 68, as well as poetic sections of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, read with the understanding of dual referents for many of the linguistic icons, unveils a deeper story of the backdrop of the war in the gates, when the people choose new gods (see Judges 5), and the manifested results of the adversary’s vision will be viewed by angels and men so as to exhibit the consequences of the alternative landscape proposed by the rebels. But it is The Book of Breathings, popularized by top Mormon scholar Hugh Nibley that should prove the most troubling for Christians.
In the commentary sections of his book, along with the appendices that draw parallels with Christian apocryphal and pseudepigraphal literature, Nibley lays a solid foundation for a thoroughly masonic and gnostic approach to salvation, wherein initiation is the key to preparation for the life to come. Gone is the teaching of Jesus.
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:5-8)
What we have in place of that are ordinances, for those who can be reborn to be gods by their initiations. This theogony is foundational in masonry and in churches like LDS, where believers become their own gods in their own universe in the life to come. It is what Mormons call an endowment, or mystery, which bestows something valuable on a person, in this case, something viewed as spiritual, not temporal. In Nibley’s words:
It is the greatest of gifts, but we cannot cash it in this life – it is only for the “spiritual minded,” “having nothing to do with temporal things;” it pays off only at certain times and upon the exact fulfillment of certain conditions. No people were more willing to invest their means and energies in obtaining an endowment – a hope and a promise – than the Egyptians. The purpose of the following study is to consider what specific steps were involved in the bestowing and receiving of such an endowment according to the Book of Breathings. How closely they resemble the Latter-day Saint endowments the reader must decide for himself, for from this point on we intend to say nothing of the latter. [The Book of Breathings, Hugh Nibley, p. 14]
What a stark contrast this presents to the endowment of Christ, a free gift, obtained in covenantal love through obedience to the gospel. What then, do Christians have to do with the masonic, humanistic, bottom-up approach to eternal Life?
It is a system of magic to make men into gods. And that is the heart of our human dilemma; it is why Man is ever standing before the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and ever confronted with the choice of seeking to be like God, vs. listening for the voice of the Good Shepherd, and following. For the masses of humanity it is a done deal and they have imagined they are like God, calling scripture [Gen. 1:26] to support their position, and thereby devolving the image of God into something more like a beast.
Is it pure speculation to consider that a church claiming Jesus Christ could twist the truth about Christ and God? Consider the words of an elder of the LDS church.
“We believe in a God who is Himself progressive, whose majesty is intelligence; whose perfection consists in eternal advancement — a Being who has attained His exalted state by a path which now His children are permitted to follow, whose glory it is their heritage to share. In spite of the opposition of the sects, in the face of direct charges of blasphemy, the Church proclaims the eternal truth: ‘As man is, God once was; as God is, man may be.'” (LDS Apostle James E. Talmage, Articles of Faith, Ch.24, p.430 – p.431)
This type of heresy is more universal than any Christian would like to believe, and it is in line with Paul’s words to the Romans (1:21-23) worshiping the creation rather than the Creator, to wit exchanging a Living God for the image of a golden calf, or any facsimile of creation.
What about Malachi 3:6 “I am YHWH, I change not”?
How about Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever”?
It is for this reason that Isaiah makes his broad-sweeping indictment of humanity for the end days along with their final reckoning revealed.
For the Lord of hosts will have a day
Against everyone who is proud and lofty
And against everyone who is lifted up,
That he may be abased.
And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up,
Against all the oaks of Bashan,
And the pride of man will be humbled
And the loftiness of men will be abased
And the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
Stop regarding man, who breath is in his nostrils,
For why should he be esteemed?
Isaiah 2:12-13,17,22 (emphasis added)
Do we not see this self-exaltation paraded through the pulpits of today’s churches, as well as in all of the gnostic-styled fellowships claiming a superiority of knowledge, as well of course, in the secret masonic styled societies and new age fellowships which claim, in their own way, to be Horus, reborn into the waterway of YHWH unto eternal life.
So what happened to the Savior? What is His role now? Why is he needed when the words of the adversary have won over heart and mind: “Ye shall not die the death.” Just use these magical formulae of sacred names and you can resurrect the dead. Really?
And what of Paul’s fundamental kernel of the gospel:
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Or the words of the Savior himself:
For even as the Father raises up the dead and gives life, thus also the Son gives life to whom He will. John 5:21
So which will it be, O Man? Will life eternal come from the creator or the creation? Can it come from the gods who are not the Gods who created the heavens and the earth? Can it be conferred by the teachings of demons which promise to grant resurrection in the manner of the Osiris mysteries, or can it be conferred by the secret teaching of the ages, which Manly Hall inscribed as the distillation of Masonic teaching? Or can it come from the simple fleshly birth of a being whose breath is in his nostrils and is not to be esteemed? If his breath is in his nostrils, how can it be the breath of Heaven?
Yet there are more details needing unpacked to examine just why Job 3 and 38, Amos 5, and Judges 5 point to a war between stars and give specific star regions with spare description of their qualities. Specifically, if a rebellion occurred in Heaven, beyond the limit of the abyss, what are the created elements, both heavens and their host (Ps. 33), which depict this warfare? Are there actual hosts of stars – in Revelation, John validates the inference of stars as angels – who have created their own towers aka fortresses, what Isaiah calls ‘the unassailable city’ (Isa. 26:5 cf. 32:19)? Indeed, there are.
Out of Egypt I called my Son
When Israel left Egypt, they had been commanded to have no leaven in their house for seven days, and to celebrate the seven-day Feast of Unleavened (see Lev. 23). God also commanded them to leave behind the idols of Egypt, for He was to execute judgment against the gods of Egypt. What good would it do to leave yeast behind and bring along the real problem, the leaven of Egypt which would corrupt the whole lump? And corrupt it did.
Once again, humanity is facing a similar crossroads, and is being cautioned to move beyond idolatry and to turn to their hearts to God, who will forgive all their iniquities. And still people prefer to worship demons and not repent of the work of their own hands which become objects of their own veneration. And so the problem becomes, not their “alter ego” but their ego altar.
As I survey the landscape of modern spirituality and the ‘creative’ avenues which seekers take to find the “god of their understanding” rather than the Living God, the Most High, the God of Israel – dare I say the God of Jesus Christ – what becomes more and more visible is the way in which the really problematic leaven of Egypt continues to bubble up. And no, we are not talking about bread (cf. Matt. 16:11). We are talking about the more dangerous leaven which Israel did not leave behind, and the problem which Matthew addresses in his gospel of the indwelling Christ: Out of Egypt I called my Son (Matt. 2:15, Hosea: 11:1).
With Christians seeking to recover their “Hebraic roots” they invariably incorporate the leaven of Pharisees, which has them adopting practices which are rooted in the traditions of men, of the variety found in Judaism. And among these is the raging battle over the pronunciation of the name of Jesus.
How can something of flesh and blood, i.e. a word pronounced by physical lips with physical breath, albeit a ‘name,’ have a bearing on salvation? Isn’t that covered by Paul in Galatians 5:6? Are we going to wear ceremonial garb when Christ has lifted us above the practices of the first tabernacle? That tabernacle is no longer standing and we are now the temple of God’s Spirit. So the name of Jesus, which Paul stated is the only name under Heaven by which men may be saved, is quite sufficient. It is not an invocation of Zeus, as the unschooled and superstitious wannabe teachers of the Israel of God rail. What’s more, Jesus has a new name which no one knows but He Himself, so why argue over the pronunciation of a name designating His earthly body and office as “Savior?” He has additional offices and additional names, the foremost being, in some ways, THE WORD OF GOD, which name by the way is the designation of Him alone, and NOT the bible, notwithstanding all the protests of fundamentalist protesters aka Protestants.
As a reminder to Hebraic roots people, while scripture is solid on the importance of the Law, that disciples ought, out of belief in the Logos, and love for God and Man, to keep the Law, that does not include items which amount to circumcision. We do not need to become ‘Jews’ in either language, custom, or in bodily trimming.
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love. (Gal. 5:6)
But how does this relate to Egypt with these well-intentioned Christians merely seeking authenticity in worship and in their walk? Exactly because it smacks of magic, and that of the precise kind found in Egypt. Returning to the foot of Mt. Sinai, with the sons of Israel gathered in multitudes while Moses communed with the Lord, it seems incredible that they would return to the lower gods. But in Egypt they were familiar with Ptah, the creator god who made the heavens and the earth by thought and word [particularly the right pronunciation of sacred words – and was not this Ptah a counterfeit of the Logos who created heaven and earth as the Living Word of the Father, the Most High God?
Ptah [and later Osiris] was also believed to be embodied in the Apis bull, which was also a symbol of Ra. So here we are brought full circle to understand how Israel saw their God as the god in the image of the bull. This may seem repetitious with much that is written above, but it is a pedagogical necessity to reiterate these issues that are life critical. For whether they know it or not, the Hebraic Roots folk are delving into Egyptian magic, believing that correct pronunciation of the Savior’s name will bring them blessings which are not available to those who cling to the “profane” pronunciation ‘Jesus.’
And salvation has just been reduced from the free gift of Eternal Life in Christ Jesus as Paul wrote to the Romans, down to a commodity which can be acquired with the free “proper pronunciation” of a corrupted ancient Hebrew word. This does nothing except to re-crucify Christ and exchange the Creator for the creation. Salvation now moves into the domain of the creature, accessible by his practices. No doubt God feels relieved of herding sacred Egyptian cats who are actually temple priests in disguise.
By way of personal experience, God granted me a wonderfully rich sojourn among the cognoscenti of Egyptian wisdom and knowledge, a variation of the well-known ‘Sacred Names’ groups. The international fellowship was rich in archaeology and cosmology, both of the ancients, and of contemporary Indiana Jones-type explorers. Scriptural study was quite expansive with ready correlations and synchronicities that could explain quite handily the justification for “another Jesus” and “another gospel.” Salvation had been moved to the domain of the creature, just as with Mormonism. Chanted formulas in many ancient languages were presumed to confer spiritual benefits as one “worked out their own salvation.”
This is by no means meant to disparage persons in that fellowship, for as we know from Revelation 12, the adversary has deceived the whole world. What it gives us in the way of perspective, is additional contours of how the coming apostasy will look, so that for real seekers of truth, real disciples of Christ Jesus, fore-warned will mean fore-armed.
Jerusalem is called ‘Egypt’ for a reason. It is full of the leaven that should never have left, and should have been buried in the sands of the pharaohs. But modern Man, and especially post-modern Man, is too clever for himself, and modern psi-warriors and mind control researchers have been keen to contact the ‘gods of Egypt,’ that is, gods from space, who may have worked with earth civilizations to build great citadels beyond their technological capability. Even the CIA and MKUltra operations felt that no stone should be left unturned – except the stone they rejected – and these ‘black ops’ and ‘psi ops’ were loath to be one upped by the Russians or any group, in their desperate need to find some controlling power by which they could rule over the teeming masses of sheeple who should never be privy to the secret knowledge which they alone must employ to rule over them who “need” overlords. In their zeal to stand above, they became modern-day fractal representations of these ancient pharaohs, and have deployed an awesome array of technologies, including psychotronic types, to keep the underlings in line. So, it should come to be expected that any new global religion that can command awe from the masses around the world, would likely be rich in knowledge and imagery from Egypt, for that is one of the great compelling mysteries that captures the human imagination. And for this reason, it is clear that the LDS church has positioned itself to take advantage of this captivating mythos of Egypt. It should not surprise anyone if this group were to command a lead role in the great apostasy to come.
Out of all of this we are called – called to faith in Jesus Christ and the God who sent Him. We are also called to the obedience of the gospel, by which we show our belief in them that they have an orderly ethos by which the worlds in heaven and on earth can be administered. Loving God does, indeed, mean, keeping His commandments. (1John 5:3) And these commandments are not burdensome, in fact, as part of the New Covenant they are to be written in our heart. That love for God shows we are not interested in the kind of lawlessness and disorder that the adversary has engendered in his absolute disdain for God’s commands and rebellion against God’s kingdom. The world in which we live is certainly more conforming to lawlessness and disregard for love and peace than how the world would look if each person loved God with all his heart and mind and soul and strength, and loved his neighbor as himself, the epitome of the Law.
So out of Egypt the Christian is called; called to a new Life in Christ Jesus, as one who with circumcised heart may have Christ’s Spirit breathed into him, her, the Life eternal.
Knowledge of God
Is knowledge of God helpful in discerning the coming abomination? Can it keep disciples from perishing? Absolutely, it can.
Listen to the word of the Lord, O sons of Israel,
For the Lord has a case against the inhabitants of the earth,
because there is no truth or loving kindness or knowledge of God in the earth.
(Hosea 4:1, emphasis added)
My People are perishing for lack of Knowledge. (Hosea 4:6)
The question for Christians will be: can they discern between the free gift of God in Christ Jesus and a self-help program? Will God remain God and has he always been God (Mal. 3:6), and has Jesus Christ been the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8)?
The quotations from Elders and scholars in the LDS church reproduced above bear witness to the insidious violation of truth, absolutely consistent with Paul’s charges in Romans 1; viz. putting the creation into the Creator’s position. And isn’t this just the same move the adversary tried to make which started the whole slide into sin and death (see. Isa. 14)? So, knowledge of God, His ways, His thoughts, His Law, and especially His nature [which was so clearly manifested in Jesus Christ] are absolutely unparalleled in value to the follower of Christ in helping point out the deception at the heart of the abomination of desolation. John, in his first epistle, reminds hearers to test the spirits to see if they are of God. The statement that Jesus the Christ is come in the flesh is not enough on its own, because what is critical in that test truth is which Jesus are we talking about and what does Christ or Messiah mean? He must be the Logos who was God and through whom all things came to be. Any other Jesus is not the Jesus Christ of whom John writes.
If we know God, through Jesus Christ, intimately and personally, we need never be deceived. Egypt may have all sorts of gastronomic delicacies, theatrical spectacles, soft linens and silks, and all of the comforts of the material creation. But it lacks life. And to choose Egypt would amount to choosing death over Life. Wouldn’t it be a sad eventuality if after so long a time, Man would in the end be incapable of discerning good and evil, and thus incapable of choosing Life? But that is what is looming in our immediate future as the vast space-age civilization captures the imagination of the masses with thoughts of star gates, powers like the gods, and a new image that might not be subject to the ravages of time. Can technology bring Man the long-sought immortality he desires, the endless life which technology prophets like Ray Kurzweil promise?
The New Image of Man
Come, let Us make man in Our image and Our shadow [likeness]. (Gen. 1:26)
In the end of these days it could be like “the odd couple” to see the Mormon Church partnered with Ray Kurzweil in resurrecting the city of Enoch, where men become gods. Of course, the real immortality lies in being a son of the Living God, having the Spirit, i.e. breath or life, from an eternal realm. And Man cannot extend his life.
The great pyramid at Giza was once known as Pa-Hanok, ‘House of Enoch.’ Perhaps built as a memorial to Enoch by Cain, could this house have been the tip of a great city that could have required engineers from the ‘host of heaven?’ Cain, who was the builder of the city of Enoch (Gen. 4:17-19) and likely confused by many with the patriarch Enoch who was seventh in Adam’s line and prophesied of the coming of the Lord of Hosts to execute judgment on all the ungodly (Jude 14), would thereby be the spiritual progenitor of this line of followers who will compete with God to establish a kingdom and to remake Man in their image. The Egyptians sought to rise to immortality in Ihm Sk, aka Orion, the region of the foremost of bulls. This they believed to accomplish through their rituals of the opening of the mouth, the ordinances of a magical science that would confer life upon the Ba, or the soul, which would rise up to heaven. This is not so distant from today’s efforts to engineer life immortality, albeit it by a differing approach.
Is this why Orion occupies such an enigmatic place in the cosmology of Job and Amos? In Hebrew, Orion was called Kesil. Strangely, this word has a cognate that is spelled identically with different vowel points that means ‘foolishness’ with regard to practical matters and ‘shamelessness’ respecting religious affairs. Would that not capture the essence of the entire Egyptian project and the vanity of the gods who directed it toward worship of themselves? It is a vain endeavor and can only be epitomized in the words of the Odist who wrote:
And ignorance appeared like a blind man;
And like the foam of the sea,
And they supposed of that vain thing that it was something great;
And they too came in likeness of it and became vain. (Ode of Solomon 18:14-16)
In the ‘sacred name’ assembly in which I sojourned, Orion played a pivotal role, as a place which is a gateway to the spiritual Heaven of heavens, a place called by the Egyptians, “the region of the imperishable star gods.” This sounds perfectly appropriate to be ingrafted into the LDS cosmology and to be appropriated to their own Egyptian-style ordinances for initiation into the celestial realms.
It is sad that none of this leads to life outside of this perishable realm. The gods who did not make heaven and earth cannot give life – especially outside of this time-bound realm. They have not the keys to the kingdom, nor the Key of David which Christ has and opens the door to the true ancient Heaven of heavens.
It could be said that transhumanism is Freemasonry for the technological age. But Freemasonry forged the technological age. In effect, the history of modern times is the efforts of an occult underground led by Freemasons and other occult secret societies, who represented their agenda as “science” pitted against “religion.” Freemasonry is founded on the belief that magic empowers man to become “like a god.” Their goal is to harness the powers of nature, both known (real science) and hidden (occult). For more on this subject we hope to offer the reader additional information and commentary in future posts on this website
When all is said and done, the strange confluence of synchronicities, from the highly classified Project Enoch of agencies of the US government, to the extraordinarily touted ancient City of Enoch proclaimed by the Mormon church to the projected New Age centers as new cities of Enoch, there is something of an ongoing shame and abomination that left Egypt and has sojourned with Israel in the promised land, and then became laminated into secret societies and Christian denominations.
It is time to lay down the idols of Egypt – they are the real leaven of Egypt. For one day soon the decree against the gods of Egypt which Isaiah declared (Isa.19), will truly be executed. The fallen host of heaven will fall again to earth, replicating its original fall from the ancient Heaven of heavens, and in one last-ditch effort to establish its hegemony over the vassals of the earth, to steal sheep from the Lord’s own flock and to put them to death. Choose life instead, and receive the one who alone, has authority to give Life, as His and our Father does as well. And He gives this Eternal Life in the image and likeness of Himself not in the image of perishable Man and His technological vanities. There will be a bonfire of these vanities at the valley of Jehoshaphat, you can count on it, as the Lord [YHWH] is Good for His Word.
Final Note: Today is the 12th of April, 2017 according to the world’s calendar and it is actually the 15th of Abib, the first month of the calendar according to what the Lord gave to Moses. As such it is the day the Israelites were already on the road out of Egypt and headed for the Red Sea, or Sea of Reeds. How fitting to contemplate these things during the Feast of Unleavened. I did not arise this morning with any thought of completing this paper which I began in 2016, but in contemplating the reality of leaven, and the fact that Israel did end up bringing leaven out of Egypt in the form of the gods of Egypt, the Lord guided me to finish this offering. How mysterious are Thy ways Oh Lord! Amen!
