Is there a modern equivalent of this mïs pî ritual today? This ancient Mesopotamian ritual is supposedly a pagan ritual of what GOD did in Eden with Adam by giving him life. He become indwelled by the breathe of God and became a man in the image of God. We see an equivalent to this ritual in the Roman Catholic Church with the Eucharist. They actually believe that they are eating the body and drinking the blood of Jesus. This is demonic. My question is this. Are these luciferians trying to do this today to us? By the air we breath to the food we eat to the things we drink. Are they performing this ritual on us unknowingly? If this is true and they are trying to make us in the image of the beast unknowingly, we better make sure we are sealed by the Spirit of God. How do we do this? Believe in your heart that He has resurrected from the dead and confess with your MOUTH that Jesus is LORD and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) He will then send the Holy Spirit to seal you. You need to become born again in the image of Christ and not the image of the beast. Please read on for a better understanding of what this ritual may mean.
“The creation of the first human in Genesis 2 reflects many aspects of a Mesopotamian ritual known as the mïs pî (the washing of the mouth) or pït pî (the opening of the mouth). Known from Assyrian and Babylonian writings, this ritual typically took place in a sacred grove beside a river (see Genesis 2:10, 13-14). The purpose of the ritual was to vivify a newly carved cult statue so that it would become a living entity, imbued with the spirit and presence of the god of which it was an image. The image was thus transformed from an inert object to a living, breathing, manifestation of the deity on earth.” (http://www.patheos.com/blogs/jesuscreed/2014/08/05/richard-middleton-after-the-liberating-image-rjs/)
“Several scholars have used the analogy of the Roman Catholic Theology of the “Eucharistic Presence” to explain the theology of the ancient Near Eastern cult image and what was supposed to happen to the statue through the mis pi ritual. Christopher Walker and Michael Dick explain it this way: ‘To…Roman Catholics the bread and wine during the Eucharistic ritual become the real presence of the Divine Jesus, while still subsisting under the appearance of bread and wine. Obviously the Eucharistic species are not coterminous with Jesus, so that the Eucharistic Presence can be found simultaneously in Churches throughout the world’. (Walker and Dick 2001:7).” ((https://www.google.com/amp/s/rebekahmgiffone.wordpress.com/2010/08/06/part-2-yhwhs-cult-statues-further-study-of-the-image-of-god-in-an-ane-context/amp/?client=ms-android-metropcs-us)
“With reference to the cult statue, this merging of human and divine space was achieved through mouth-cleansing (mis pi) and mouth-opening (pit pi) rituals which were performed on the statue to make it into an image that properly represented the deity. These rites of purification had to be performed on the cult statue before it could take up residence in the holy of holies. A stone tablet dating from the thirty-first year of Nabu-apla-innida (ca 887-855 BCE) tells of one such fashioning of a new cult statue and its ritual dedication. It claims that this “image of Samas, the great lord” was prepared by the king through the skill of various gods (Dick 1996:113). The king washed the statue’s mouth with rites of purification before Samas in the temple E-kar-sagina. “Then he (the statue/Samas) took up his dwelling” (Dick 1996:113). In order for the statue to be able to function as a god, its mouth not only had to be washed, but opened through the pit piritual. The “washing of the mouth” purified the cult image from any human contamination and the “opening of the mouth” enabled the statue to do things like eat, drink water or smell incense (Walker and Dick 2001:14).” (https://www.google.com/amp/s/rebekahmgiffone.wordpress.com/2010/08/06/part-2-yhwhs-cult-statues-further-study-of-the-image-of-god-in-an-ane-context/amp/?client=ms-android-metropcs-us)

So what do you think? Are they performing this mïs pî ritual on us unknowingly? Will you be in the image of the beast or the image of our Messiah, Jesus?
