According to Babylonian astronomy, Jupiter was known as Nibiru. Yes that’s right, the mystery Planet X Nibiru that everyone talks about. The same planet that everyone thinks will destroy earth and blah blah blah. That’s all I hear about on YouTube and social media….Nibiru. But I wonder why no one ever mentions why the ancient Babylonians named Jupiter Nibiru? Probably because it doesn’t fit into their charts.
But is Neberu who is also called Jupiter really the Nibiru that people talk about today? According to an Assyrian Dictionary it is. And notice how Jupiter is associated with Marduk and his star. Another name for Jupiter is Sulpae. Jupiter was known as Sulpae in Sumer. Sulpae means Lord of the Bright Dawn and this would be referring to Jupiter in the East at Sunrise. In Akan (African) beliefs they called Sulpae, Soro Pae who had the title YAW (does that look familiar?) but his name was Heru in ancient Kamit. Now Heru was Horus of Egypt and he was the son of Ausor (Osiris).
The Babylonians also had ancient prayers to invoke not only Jupiter but to Saturn, Mars and Mercury. These were the four great planets in Babylon and in Hinduism.
As far as the Jupiter-Venus conection goes which are mentioned above, some conclude that these two stars were the ones to make the Bethlehem star. Dag Kihlman writes “If the wise men came from Mesopotamia, they most likely used the divination manual Enuma Anu Enlil, which we have and can read. The manual told them what was important to study.
The Star of Bethlehem Documentary, by Rick Larson, assumes that Venus coming so close to Jupiter that they appeared as a single star was one of two signs directing the magi to Jerusalem.
This is what the manual says:
If Venus reaches Sulpae [Jupiter] and they follow upon each other: high water will carry off the land. If Venus reaches ditto and passes it: a mighty high water will come. If Venus and ditto come close: reign of destruction (concerning) the king of Amurru. If Venus comes near ditto: the land altogether – brother will become hostile to his brother. If Venus enters Jupiter (UD AL Tar): the king of Akkad [i.e. Mesopotamia] will die, the dynasty will change, either a soldier will go out or the enemy will send a message (asking for peace) to the land. (Reiner, Erica and Pingree, David “Babylonian Planetary Omens Part Three, page 45)
It seems very disappointing. However, Amurru is to the magi the area in the west, Syria down to Israel/Jordan. Since the House of Herod was the dominant force in the Amurru, it is very likely that they would assume that the coming king came from Jerusalem, and that he will conquer Mesopotamia, as a new Alexander the Great. The other sign mentioned by Larson happened nine months earlier. It was when Jupiter passed over the star Regulus, soon to turn back over Regulus and out of the Lion backwards. This too means that the king of Akkad will die and be replaced by a “new person”.
Larson thinks that Revelation 12 is a protocol of what the magi saw. The quote above talks about a new king, an harsh rule and a flood just as Revelation 12 talks about a new king, ruling with an iron scepter and a flood. Other parts of Revelation 12 can be explained with help of the divination manual and events on the sky the dates Larson has suggested.” (https://www.quora.com/How-did-the-Three-Wise-Men-know-that-the-Star-of-Bethlehem-was-important)
Who was Sulpae? This name was used usually only if there was a bad omen associated with Jupiter. “A Sumerian fertility god, with some military aspects, and the personification of the planet Jupiter. He is the patron of wild animals. He is sometimes regarded as the consort of the prominent goddess Ninchursanga. His name means something like ‘shining appearing youth'” (http://www.pantheon.org/articles/s/sulpae.html) Another interesting Venus-Jupiter connection is this. The Greek authors described the birth of Athene (planet Venus), saying she sprang from the head of Jupiter. “And mighty Olympus trembled fearfully . . . and the earth around shrieked fearfully, and the sea was stirred, troubled with its purple waves.”x One or two authors thought that Athene was born of Cronus. But the consensus of ancient authors makes Athene-Venus the offspring of Jupiter: she sprang from his head, and this birth was accompanied by great disturbances in the celestial and terrestrial spheres. The comet rushed toward the earth, and it could not be very well distinguished whether the planet Jupiter or its offspring was approaching. I may divulge here something that belongs to the second book of this work; namely, that at an earlier time, Jupiter had already caused havoc in the planetary family, the earth included, and it was therefore only natural to see in the approaching body the planet Jupiter.” (Worlds in Collision)
Egyptian Amun Jupiter
Before we move on I also want to point out that Jupiter is also called Amun in Egypt. This false god is also called Jupiter-Ammon and in Greece he was Zues-Ammon. I wonder if there is any connection to Ammon, Jordan with Jupiter? “The Hidden One,” Amen is “King of the Netjeru,” a major Name of Netjer in Uaset (Thebes) in Upper Kemet.
The “Lord to the Limit” who created all things (see Nun, Tem, Ra and Ptah entries for other Creator Names), Amen the lord of the hidden wind eventually syncretised with the royal cult of Ra to emerge as Amen-Ra in the Middle Kingdom. Successions of Theban rulers would propel Amen’s fame to national and eventually international status; even Alexander the Great sought Amen’s blessing before declaring himself Kemet’s ruler.
It is possible that the conception of Amen influenced conceptions of the Judaic/Hebraic God (YHVH) as well as those of Greek Zeus and Roman Jupiter; the Romans declared Jupiter and Amen to be the same divinity. Amen is generally depicted as a man wearing a tall golden plumed crown and a red and white pleated skirt; infrequently He is also shown as a ram with curled-down horns (not to be confused with the ram representing Khnum), or a ram-headed man. (Source Author: Rev. Tamara Siuda) “In Paradise Lost, Milton identifies Ammon with the biblical Ham (Cham) and states that the gentiles called him the Libyan Jove.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amun)
And look at the pictures above. I believe through my research on the Arch that Jupiter is connected to all of this. And look what image they used inbetween the Arch of Triumph just recently. A goat. The Greatest Of All Time. Yeah right!
If you look at the image above you can see Jupiter Amon in what is similar to the double crown of Egypt. Someone pointed out that this double crown matches the body of Leo and is in fact a crown above Virgos head. The double crown represented the lower and upper kingdoms of Egypt coming together. You can almost see this happening spiritually with their “as above so below” event.
And notice how this double crown looks like the eye of Horus or the wedjat.
And September 20th of 2017 is the alleged “Christ Angle” event at the pyramids. “The Christ angle is roughly 26.3 degrees or more precisely 26 degrees, 18 minutes, and 9 seconds. It is the angle of the ascending and descending passageways inside the Great Pyramid. It is called such because this angle if taken north of east from the site of the Great Pyramid will bisect Bethlehem.
Robert Bauval first suggested the Orion Theory in his 1994 book, The Orion Mystery. His theory is that the Pyramids known as Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure are aligned representing the belt stars of Orion—that is, if one looks south. The Great Pyramid (Khufu) is represented by the lower left belt star known as Al Nitak and the Great pyramid is the northeast pyramid. This makes sense since looking at Orion at meridian means one will have to look south. However, the Orion Theory puts pyramid construction at 10,500 BC since it holds to a vernal equinox scenario where Orion is at meridian during dawn at the onset of spring. However, the prophetic view incorporated here is that the pyramid complex was built looking forward down the corridors of time. This works if the layout looks to the other equinox, the beginning of autumn when Orion will be at meridian during dawn. Two thousand years ago Orion (specifically Al Nitak) hit the dawn-meridian at August 26th. Now the alignment is at September 20th due to the precession of the equinoxes. So it is now quite close to the Autumn Equinox. Also, the idea of a Spring Equinox alignment in 10,500 BC is simply not possible because according to biblical chronology humanity has existed for just over 6,000 years.
While September 20th is quite close to the Autumn Equinox, there is also the possibility that Rosh Hashanah will coincide with the meridian alignment of Al Nitak during dawn. Could Rosh Hashanah be the real factor? The basic idea is that the pyramid complex is a map of the heavens of a point in time when Christ returns. The pyramids show what is to be at meridian (Al Nitak in Orion), and also the causeways heading east from the pyramids show the importance of the rising sun or other items rising in the east. That the Sphinx also looks to the east is a factor as well. The point though was to see when there was a candidate for an alignment of Rosh Hashanah and the meridian alignment of Orion at dawn.” (http://watchfortheday.org/signsoftheend/giza2024.html)
I don’t think much about the sign in Egypt on the 20th but the link is above if your interested in digging into it. I’ll leave you with this concerning Egypt. “In one local cult in Egypt the name of Isis, as I shall show in the next volume, originally belonged to Jupiter, Osiris being Saturn. In another local cult Amon was the name for Jupiter. Horus originally was also Jupiter. But when a new planet was born of Jupiter and became supreme in the sky, the onlookers could not readily recognize the exact nature of this change. They gave the name of Isis to the planet Venus, and sometimes the name of Horus. This must have caused confusion. “One is confused by the various relations which exist between mother and son (Isis and Horus). Now he is her consort, now her brother; now a youth . . . now an infant fed at her breast.” (Worlds in Collision)
Now lets go back to Assyrian and Babylonian views.
As you can see above, this Babylonian name for Jupiter ie Nibiru is seen in the month of Tisritum (pre-Babylonian it was called Eithanim. This is equivilant to our September. So this is when the constellation for Nibiru was seen and don’t forget that Jupiter was called Nibiru. And ironically, Jupiter will be birthed in Tisritum or should I say September of this year. And let me add that Jupiter in Jewish mysticism rules in Libra which are the scales of judgement. Libra according to Hebrew astronomy corresponds to the minty of Tishrie which is you guessed it, September.
Exaltation of Jupiter
In Babylonian astronomy/astrology they have what is called “exaltations”. This means when planets are in certain constellations they are proned to have more influence on certain things. Gavin White explains it better. “In late Babylonian sources the Exaltations are referred to as the ‘secret houses’ or ‘secret places’ of the planets (in the Akkadian language bit nisirti and ašar nisirti respectively). The earliest exposition of the planetary Exaltations can be found in the so-called ‘Gu-text’. The text, dated between the 7th and 5th centuries BCE, lists the constellations in long strings running approximately North-South. Unfortunately the text is incomplete, and what remains needs some re-organisation, but the surviving references to the planets are as follows: String E – ‘Jupiter behind the Crab (Cancer) in front of the Lion (Leo)'”
JUPITER & THE CRAB (Cancer)
“The location of Jupiter’s Exaltation is found between the constellations of the Crab and the Lion (Cancer and Leo) on the most northerly section of the ecliptic, where it’s rising coincides with the summer solstice. Jupiter is considered to be the most auspicious planet, indeed the ‘King of the Planets’, and his omens specifically apply to the land of Akkad, the traditional ‘homeland’ as far as astrology is concerned. This symbolism is in marked contrast to the malevolent Mars, whose Exaltation rises with the winter solstice and who is associated with the land of Elam, the traditional enemy of Babylonia.
In Babylonian lore the Crab is sometimes called the ‘Seat or Abode of Anu’. Anu is the most ancient god of the celestial realms; his name literally means ‘heaven’. He is the ultimate authority figure who lends his power to the other gods, and in the human realm he is especially associated with the divinely ordained powers of the king. He abides in the highest of the three superimposed heavens recognised in Babylonian cosmology (the pantheon gods occupy the middle heaven while the figures of the constellations are engraved upon the lowest heaven) which may well be reflected in astrological lore by placing his special abode in the Crab, which, of course, occupies the highest part of the ecliptic.
So far only one omen referring to Jupiter in its Exaltation has come to light: ‘If Jupiter (Sagmegar) passes towards sunset: quiet dwelling and well-being descend upon the land, variant: the land will dwell in quiet’ – Jupiter is seen in front of the Crab.
This omen is typically used in the State Archives of Assyria to refer to the circumstance of Jupiter staying visible in the heavens longer than expected. Texts such as Mul-Apin give very basic periods of visibility and invisibility for all the planets – in this case, Jupiter is said to ‘stand in the sky for one year’ before disappearing in the west. Although most planetary phenomena that manifest outside their ideal parameters are considered to be inauspicious signs, the continued presence of benevolent Jupiter beyond its ideal period of a year is interpreted as a positive sign – as it continues to bless the king and the land beyond its normal measure.
We can only speculate that this omen has been applied to the presence of Jupiter in its Exaltation for the simple reason that it too is considered a highly benevolent sign.” (http://www.skyscript.co.uk/exaltations.html)
The Temple of Jupiter
I think most people don’t realize that there was a Temple of Jupiter on the Temple Mount. I’m under the opinion that this Temple was built where the al-aqsa mosque is now. And that the actual Temple was built 600 feet South of the actual Temple Mount in Ophel. But that’s besides the point, there was a Temple of Jupiter on this site.
“In AD 130, on his grand tour of the eastern part of the Roman Empire, Hadrian visited the devastated city ofJerusalem , accompanied by his young lover Antinous. He established a new city on the site of the old one which was left in ruins after the First Roman-Jewish War of 66–73. The new city was to be named Colonia Aelia Capitolina. Aelia is derived from the emperor’s family name (Aelius, from the gens Aelia), and Capitolina refers to the cult of the Capitoline Triad (Jupiter, Juno and Minerva).”
“At Jerusalem Hadrian founded a city in place of the one which had been razed to the ground, naming it Aelia Capitolina, and on the site of the temple of the god he raised a new temple to Jupiter. This brought on a war of no slight importance nor of brief duration, for the Jews deemed it intolerable that foreign races should be settled in their city and foreign religious rites planted there.” – Cassius Dio, Roman History, 69.12 (https://www.google.com/amp/s/followinghadrian.com/2014/11/05/exploring-aelia-capitolina-hadrians-jerusalem/amp/#ampshare=https://followinghadrian.com/2014/11/05/exploring-aelia-capitolina-hadrians-jerusalem/)
“Eusebius 325 AD: When Constantine came upon the temple mount in Jerusalem, he destroyed the temple of Jupiter that had been built in 135 AD by Hadrian. In building the “Church of the Holy Sepulchre” in 325 AD, Eusebius records how Constantine even removed the soil on the site and dumped it far away. Hadrian had built a temple to Venus on the site and Constantine destroyed and removed every trace of this pagan idolatry. It seems unlikely that Constantine would remove even the soil from the site of the “Church of the Holy Sepulchre” where Hadrian had built a temple to Venus, but leave Hadrian’s statues on the temple mount. Yet in 400 AD, Jerome says that the statue of Hadrian riding a horse was still standing on the very place of the Jewish Temple. Eusebius wrote in 325 AD: “How Constantine Commanded the Materials of the Idol Temple, and the Soil Itself, to Be Removed at a Distance: Nor did the emperor’s zeal stop here; but he gave further orders that the materials of what was thus destroyed, both stone and timber, should be removed and thrown as far from the spot as possible; and this command also was speedily executed. The emperor, however, was not satisfied with having proceeded thus far: once more, fired with holy ardor, he directed that the ground itself should be dug up to a considerable depth, and the soil which had been polluted by the foul impurities of demon worship transported to a far distant place.” (Eusebius , The Life of the Blessed Emperor Constantine, book 3, ch 27)”
“In 333 AD, the “Bordeaux Pilgrim” mentions he saw two statues of Hadrian near the temple mount and that there was a building over the place of the Jewish Temple. But he also mentions the church which Constantine built over the cave where Jesus was buried. It seems strange that Constantine would have already competed the “Church of the Holy Sepulcher”, but had not yet torn down the temple of Jupiter over the “rock” or removed Hadrian’s statues. Even if we suggest that Constantine immediately destroyed Hadrian’s temple of Jupiter and erected another building over the “rock” it seems unlikely that he would leave Hadrian’s statues in place. Perhaps Constantine destroyed the Temple of Jupiter, built a small structure over what he thought was the location of the temple over the “rock” and allowed the statues of Hadrian to remain out of respect of a fellow, “past Caesar”.” (http://www.bible.ca/archeology/bible-archeology-jerusalem-temple-mount-threshing-floor.htm)
The Cult of Jupiter Serapis
The cult of Serapis was introduced during the 3rd century BC on the orders of Ptolemy I of Egypt as a means to unify the Greeks and Egyptians in his realm. The god was depicted as Greek in appearance, but with Egyptian trappings, and combined iconography from a great many cults, signifying both abundance and resurrection…However, there is evidence which implies that cult of Serapis existed before the Ptolemies came to power in Alexandria – a temple of Sarapis (or Roman Serapis) in Egypt is mentioned in 323 BC by both Plutarch (Life of Alexander, 76) and Arrian (Anabasis, VII, 26, 2). The common assertion that Ptolemy “created” the deity is derived from sources which describe him erecting a statue of Sarapis in Alexandria: this statue enriched the texture of the Sarapis conception by portraying him in both Egyptian and Greek style. Though Ptolemy I may have created the cult of Sarapis and endorsed him as a patron of the Ptolemaic dynasty and Alexandria, Sarapis was a syncretistic deity derived from the worship of the Egyptian Osiris and Apis (Osiris + Apis = Oserapis/Sarapis) and also gained attributes from other deities, such as chthonic powers linked to the Greek Hades and Demeter, and benevolence linked to Dionysus.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serapis
“The massive black diorite statue, flecked with pink crystals, is of the bull-deity Apis, originally worshipped in Memphis and associated with the cult of Isis. In the shadows, one can discern the solar disc and sacred cobra between its horns. Now in the Palazzo Altemps (Rome), it dates to the second century BC and was found on the Esquiline Hill, where there was the Garden of Maecenas. It is from Apis that Ptolemy I Soter derived the name of the synthetic god Serapis, whose cult had become increasingly popular in Rome.
The Historia Augusta is a collection of often spurious biographies of Roman emperors that was written in the late fourth century AD (about the time of Theodosius, when the Temple of Serapis was destroyed). Hadrian is purported to have addressed a letter from Egypt to his elderly brother-in-law Servianus, who was Roman consul in AD 134 (by which time Hadrian himself was back in Rome). In Alexandria, he relates: “There those who worship Serapis are, in fact, Christians, and those who call themselves bishops of Christ are, in fact, devotees of Serapis” (The Four Tyrants, VIII.1).” (http://penelope.uchicago.edu/~grout/encyclopaedia_romana/greece/paganism/serapeum.html)
“It was Ptolemy I Soter (304-284 BC), who introduced Serapis. The Apis bull was sacred at Memphis, where the deceased APIs was known as Osiris-Apis, or “Oserapis,” from which he derived the name of his new deity, “Serapis.” Ptolemy built a temple for Serapis in Alexandria, where he placed a statue for the god: a man with curly hair, benign expression, and a long beard, in the same style used later for the representations of Christ in Coptic churches. Other than his temple at Alexandria, Serapis had another centre in Memphis, where, on the necropolis of Sakkara, the Serapeum became one of the most famous sites in the country.
Isis became the companion of Serapis, who also inherited many of the attributes of Osiris, including mastery over the underworld. The mystic rites of Isis, to which women as well as men were admitted after an initiation ceremony, was based mainly on the explicit promise of immortality that they offered to adherents. The APIs bull was believed to enjoy eternal life in the sense that he was reborn as soon as he died. When they died, APIs bulls were buried in the subterranean galleries of the Serapeum, which was discovered by Mariette, the French archaeologist, in the middle of last century. Found there were 24 granite and basalt APIs sarcophagi the heaviest of which weighed almost 70 tons. The Serapeum was served by voluntary monks and included a sanatorium where the sick came in the hope of receiving miraculous cures.
The cult of Serapis was to have sweeping success throughout Greece and Asia Minor, especially in Rome, where it became the most popular religion. There was a Serapis temple in Rome as early as 105 BC. Initiation into the Serapis cult included the rite of baptism, and Sir Alan Gardiner, the British Egyptologist, argued in the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology in 1950 that Egyptian baptism should be seen as analogous to Christian baptism, of which he commented: “In both cases a symbolic cleansing by means of water serves as initiation into a properly legitimated religious life.” The cults of Serapis and Isis did not merely survive the emergence of Christianity, but in the 2nd century AD actually increased in popularity. Serapis and Christ existed side-by-side and were frequently seen as interchangeable. Some early Christians made no distinction between Christ and Serapis and frequently worshipped both, while paintings of Isis with her son Horus became identified by early Christians as portraits of Mary with her son Jesus. The rite of baptism, part of the initiation ceremony of the Serapis cult, was also adopted by the Church as part of its initiation ceremony.
In AD 134, after a visit to Alexandria, the Emperor Hadrian wrote a letter to his elderly brother-in-law, Servianus, in which he commented: “So you praise Egypt, my very dear Servianus! I know the land from top to bottom . . . In it the worshippers of Serapis are Christians, and those who call themselves Bishops of Christ pay their vows to Serapis . . . Whenever the patriarch himself comes to Egypt he is made to worship Serapis by some and Christ by others.” (https://dwij.org/forum/amarna/8_serapis_and_christianity.htm)
So we can see that Jupiter is connected to Osiris and the Apis Bull. And if you have read my book, then you know what this September event means for Jerusalem when they actually get a red heifer. I suggest you get the book to find out. One other thing I want to mention is the bushel or cup on the head of Jupiter Serapis.
Now this crown that Jupiter Serapis wore was called a modius. It was written be Queens, the priests of Palmyra (Syria) and represented the fullness. Ironically the modius is associated with the Double Crown of Egypt. “The modius is a type of flat-topped cylindrical headdress or crown found in ancient Egyptian art and art of the Greco-Roman world. The name was given by modern scholars based on its resemblance to the jar used as a Roman unit of dry measure, but it probably does represent a grain-measure, and symbolized powers over fecundity in those wearing it.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modius_(headdress))
“Paganism has sometimes con founded this God with the Sun at other times with Pluto. The hair of the head is that of Jupiter; the Mo dius, or bushel, which surmounts it, is a symbol of the benevolent deities, and an attribute of Serapis. (Wisconti, p. 4.) All the figures of Jupiter Se rapis are of the later ages, not older than the Ptolemies. (Macrob. Saturn. L. i. c. 7, p. 119.) Upon a gem in Stosch the modius accompanies the head of Jupiter Philius ; and the dis tinction of heads of Serapis or Pluto from those of Jupiter is the disposition of the hair. In the former, it is turned backwards in front, as occurs upon three Serapises at the Villa Albani, the Villa Pamphili, and the Guistiniani palace. In one gem the beard is forked. (Winckelm. Art. 4. 2.) Count Caylus (Rech. v. 187) observes, that the Romans did not adopt the symbol of the modius before the reign of Ha drian. According to some authors, the modius distinguishes Serapis of the Nile, because it symbolizes the fertility of that river. The modius upon the heads of Deities and that upon coins differ in form. The latter has leet.” (The Gentleman’s Magazine, Volume 127, 1802, Page 149)
“He is usually represented as seated upon clouds, on a throne of gold or ivory, holding in one hand thun derbolts ready to be hurled ; in the other a sceptre of cypress, to signify that his reign is eternal. His aspect is expressive of majesty, his beard flows long and ne glected ; and the eagle (Jove’s bird *) stands with ex panded wings at his feet. Sometimes he is seen with the upper part of his body naked, while the lower is care fully concealed, to show that though seen by the gods above, he is invisible to mortal eyes. The ancient monuments represent him in an infinite variety of ways — with a bushel on his head, he was the Jupiter Serapis of the Egyptians — while with the forehead armed with horns, or with the head of a ram, he became the Jupiter Ammon of the Libyans. The Cretans gave him no ears, to signify that the sovereign ruler should not lend a par tial hearing to any, but be equally candid and propitious to all ; while the Lacedsemonians adorned him with four heads, that he might seem ready to receive the solicita tions that were daily addressed to him from all parts of the earth. In his famous temple of Olympia, a city of Elis, in the Peloponnesus, his statue of gold and ivory, the work of the great Athenian sculptor Phidias, which was considered one of the wonders of the world, repre sents him seated on a throne, crowned with olives, hold ing in the right hand a small statue of Victory, and in the left a tall sceptre surmounted by a flying eagle. Justice, the Graces, and the Hours sometimes accompany Jupiter;”. (Olympus AND ITS INHABITANTS: A Harrotioe Skctrl} Of THE CLASSICAL MYTHOLOGY.

I also want you to see that some (including Christians) in these pagan civilisations didn’t always agree to the worship of Jupiter Serapis. The first quote is from the Council of Nicene while the second is from Gibbs History of Rome.
“Chapter XXII.—Of Theophilus, bishop of Alexandria, and what happened at the demolition of the idols in that city.
The illustrious Athanasius was succeeded by the admirable Petrus, Petrus by Timotheus, and Timotheus by Theophilus, a man of sound wisdom and of a lofty courage. 894 By him Alexandria was set free from the error of idolatry; for, not content with razing the idols’ temples to the ground, he exposed the tricks of the priests to the victims of their wiles. For they had constructed p. 148 statues of bronze and wood hollow within, and fastened the backs of them to the temple walls, leaving in these walls certain invisible openings. Then coming up from their secret chambers they got inside the statues, and through them gave any order they liked and the hearers, tricked and cheated, obeyed. 895These tricks the wise Theophilus exposed to the people.
Moreover he went up into the temple of Serapis, which has been described by some as excelling in size and beauty all the temples in the world. 896 There he saw a huge image of which the bulk struck beholders with terror, increased by a lying report which got abroad that if any one approached it, there would be a great earthquake, and that all the people would be destroyed. The bishop looked on all these tales as the mere drivelling of tipsy old women, and in utter derision of the lifeless monster’s enormous size, he told a man who had an axe to give Serapis a good blow with it. 897 No sooner had the man struck, than all the folk cried out, for they were afraid of the threatened catastrophe. Serapis however, who had received the blow, felt no pain, inasmuch as he was made of wood, and uttered never a word, since he was a lifeless block. His head was cut off, and forthwith out ran multitudes of mice, for the Egyptian god was a dwelling place for mice. Serapis was broken into small pieces of which some were committed to the flames, but his head was carried through all the town in sight of his worshippers, who mocked the weakness of him to whom they had bowed the knee. Thus all over the world the shrines of the idols were destroyed. 898″ (http://st-takla.org/books/en/ecf/203/2030162.html)
“The colossal statue of Serapis was involved in the ruin of his temple and religion. A great number of plates of different metals, artificially joined together, composed the majestic figure of the deity, who touched on either side the walls of the sanctuary. The aspect of Serapis, his sitting posture, and the sceptre, which he bore in his left hand, were extremely similar to the ordinary representations of Jupiter. He was distinguished from Jupiter by the basket, or bushel, which was placed on his head; and by the emblematic monster which he held in his right hand; the head and body of a serpent branching into three tails, which were again terminated by the triple heads of a dog, a lion, and a wolf. It was confidently affirmed, that if any impious hand should dare to violate the majesty of the god, the heavens and the earth would instantly return to their original chaos. An intrepid soldier, animated by zeal, and armed with a weighty battle-axe, ascended the ladder; and even the Christian multitude expected, with some anxiety, the event of the combat.
He aimed a vigorous stroke against the cheek of Serapis; the cheek fell to the ground; the thunder was still silent, and both the heavens and the earth continued to preserve their accustomed order and tranquillity. The victorious soldier repeated his blows: the huge idol was overthrown, and broken in pieces; and the limbs of Serapis were ignominiously dragged through the streets of Alexandria. His mangled carcass was burnt in the Amphitheatre, amidst the shouts of the populace; and many persons attributed their conversion to this discovery of the impotence of their tutelar deity. ” (http://www.sweetnovember.net/History_of_the_Decline_and_Fall_of_the_Roman_Empire_%E2%80%94_Volume_3/rbook=m02966=book_12520=txt/book_12520/892-8.txt=10=15.htm)
ΕΙC ΘΕΟC CΑΡΑΠΙC
Jupiter Serapis is also found on the Mano Pantea. In a pre-Christian era, this was the sign to ward off the evil eye. “THE hand in the attitude of sacerdotal benediction, having the two first fingers and thumb extended, was an amulet against the evil eye long before the Christian era.” So we will see that this hand, which features the bust of Jupiter Serapis was used to combat the evil eye. Interesting right?
“Serapis, or Jupiter Serapis, the Egyptian divinity whose bust is placed upon the mons Jovis of the hand, was chiefly worshipped at Alexandria. His cult was introduced into Greece in the time of the Ptolemies, and afterwards, against much opposition, 473 into Rome. One ruined temple at least still exists in Italy called a Serapeon, and others called Iseons, in which latter, Isis as well as Serapis was worshipped. The best known of the former is at Pozzuoli, and of the latter at Pompeii. That at Pozzuoli specially recalls the connection of that port with Alexandria. In a ship of Alexandria trading with Italy St. Paul sailed, and so landed at Pozzuoli (Puteoli, Acts xxviii. 13). The Egyptian divinity was Osiris, called Osiris-Apis or Serapis, 474 who in Egyptian sculpture often has the head of the bull Apis, crowned with the disc and horns like Isis. He was essentially a sun-god; so also is Jupiter Serapis, an attribute symbolised by the flower-basket or calathus upon his head, to express the height of the sun above us. 475Innumerable are the statues, bas-reliefs, and gems connected with the worship of Serapis, who, though lord of the sun, cannot be separated from Isis and other moon goddesses.” 476
On gem talismans the bust of Serapis is very common, having the legend, either in full, ΕΙC ΘΕΟC CΑΡΑΠΙC, or abbreviated, Ε.Θ.C. “There is but one God and he is Serapis.” ΕΙC ΖΩΝ ΘΕΟC. “The one living God.” Who can fail to note here the prototype of the Mahomedan “Allah il Allah”?
Often the intention of the amulet is fully expressed, as ΝΙΚΑ Ο CΑΡΑΠΙC ΤΟΝ ΦΘΟΝΟΝ, “Baffle the evil eye, O Serapis!” 477In the later Roman fashion, the Almighty Jove most usually wears the castle-like crown, 478 something like that of the Ephesian Diana, again showing the direct link between Osiris-Isis and Jupiter-Diana. It is remarkable that on the dome of the so-called Arian Baptistery at Ravenna, of the sixth century, where there is a representation of our Lord’s baptism, the dove is descending in visible form, but the First Person in the Trinity is represented sitting on a rock, as an old man with white beard, and on his head a sort of crown identical in shape with that upon Jupiter Serapis (Fig. 148).” (http://www.beyondweird.com/BlackMagic/TheEvilEye/tee13.htm#img_29300)
Something else that I want to bring up is the Jupiter Talisman. It has been said that Joseph Smith of the LDS fame had one of these in his possession at the time of his death. Some Mormon scholars admit that he did while others deny the story. I just thought that this was an interesting connection if it does happen to be true.

And I will leave you with a few interesting pieces of info regarding Jupiter. It takes 666 weeks for Jupiter to go through its cycle. Pretty interesting right? So i wonder if the ancient Babylonians had figured it out using mathmatics? “A year ago, Ossendrijver found the key to understanding such strange markings after a visitor showed him photographs of Babylonian tablets held by the British Museum in London since the 1880s. On one of them, the German researcher recognized, a Babylonian astronomer-scribe had recorded the motion of the planet Jupiter across the sky—and the numbers on that tablet matched the ones on the tablet with the trapezoid calculations. After traveling to London to examine the British Museum tablets in person, Ossendrijver confirmed the relationship between them. His translations of the clay tablets, published last week in the journal Science, show that the Babylonians were using sophisticated geometry—an early form of integral calculus—to deal with the abstract concept of how Jupiter’s velocity changes over time….As far back as 1800 B.C.-1600 B.C., Babylonian mathematicians had figured out how to calculate the area of a trapezoid, and even how to divide it into two smaller trapezoids of equal area. After applying these techniques to relatively mundane calculations, such as land use, they seem to have realized they could use the same math to the motion of celestial objects. To them, Jupiter was a celestial manifestation of their patron god, Marduk. They wanted to track the planet’s movement in order to understand his divine will, as well as to predict future grain harvests and other important events.” (https://www.google.com/amp/amp.history.com/news/ancient-babylonians-used-sophisticated-math-to-track-jupiter#ampshare=http://www.history.com/news/ancient-babylonians-used-sophisticated-math-to-track-jupiter)
And the last thing I will leave you with is the etymology of Jupiter. I have never went over this before and if you don’t know about it, you may find it interesting. “The word Jupiter comes from the word iuppiter:
The nominative Iuppiter, for Iūpiter (with shift of the length from vowel to consonant per the “littera” rule), comes from a vocative combined with pater, and essentially meant “father Jove”: Proto-Italic *djous patēr, from *djous (“day, sky”) + *patēr (“father”), from Proto-Indo-European *dyḗws (“lit. the bright one”), root nomen agentis from *dyew- (“to be bright, day sky”). It is cognate with Umbrian 𐌉𐌖𐌐𐌀𐌕𐌄𐌓 (iupater), and in other Indo-European branches also Sanskrit द्यौष्पितृ (dyauṣ-pitṛ), Ancient Greek Ζεῦ πατήρ (Zeû patḗr, “o father Zeus”).
The word Jupiter/Iuppiter means fatherly” (http://siriuswisdom.info/index.php/2017/02/08/amunjewsaint-peterzeus/)
“Jupiter (n.) also Juppiter, c. 1200, “supreme deity of the ancient Romans,” from Latin Iupeter, Iupiter, Iuppiter, “Jove, god of the sky and chief of the gods,” from PIE *dyeu-peter-“god-father” (originally vocative, “the name naturally occurring most frequently in invocations” [Tucker]), from *deiw-os”god” (from root *dyeu- “to shine,” in derivatives “sky, heaven, god”) + peter”father” in the sense of “male head of a household” (see father (n.)).
The Latin forms Diespiter, Dispiter … together with the word dies ‘day’ point to the generalization of a stem *dije-, whereas Iupiter, Iovis reflect [Proto-Italic] *djow~. These can be derived from a single PIE paradigm for ‘(god of the) sky, day-light’, which phonetically split in two in [Proto-Italic] and yielded two new stems with semantic specialization. [de Vaan]
Compare Greek Zeu pater, vocative of Zeus pater “Father Zeus;” Sanskrit Dyaus pitar “heavenly father.” As the name of the brightest of the superior planets from late 13c. in English, from Latin (Iovis stella). The Latin word also meant “heaven, sky, air,” hence sub Iove “in the open air.” As god of the sky he was considered to be the originator of weather, hence Jupiter Pluvius “Jupiter as dispenser of rain” !704), used jocularly from mid-19c.” (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=Jupiter)
Some believe the word JEW comes from Jupiter. That would make since being they worshipped the Apis Bull when they still were freed from Egypt. The apis represents Osiris and the combination of the two, Serapis, brings us to the worship of Jupiter Serapis.Then don’t forget the Temple of Jupiter that was located on the Temple Mount that now has the Golden Dome Mosque in its place. Or maybe it never left and it is still the Temple of Jupiter. It would make since, since the Jupiter Talisman reads “ΕΙC ΘΕΟC CΑΡΑΠΙC, or abbreviated, Ε.Θ.C. “There is but one God and he is Serapis.”
If you even dig a little deeper, the Jews not only worshipped Saturn or Cronos but the infact did worship Jupiter or Zeus. This may be where people say Jesus is associated to the name Zeus etymologicaly. This is just not true as far as the Greek goes but that is for another study. If Jew does come from the eyes Jupiter as some suspect, then there must be some sort of Jupiter worship other than the worship of Serapis that started with the Apis bull.
“Did the Jews worship Zeus who is also known as Jupiter? A Latin writer named Valerius Maximus seemed to think so and so did Plutarch. The translation of the writing of Valerius indicate this: “The Jews had tried to corrupt Roman values with their cult of Jupiter Sabazius, so the praetor forced them to go back to their home.” “Cornelius Hispanus expelled the Chaldeans from the city and ordered them to leave Italy within ten days to prevent them from making money out of their foreign science. The Jews had tried to pass their religion on to Romans, so Hispanus expelled them from the city and demolished their private altars in the public places.” “The Senate decided that the temples of Isis and Serapis should be demolished, but none of the workers dared to touch the temples. The consul Lucius Aemilius Paulus took off his official striped toga, grabbed an axe, and smashed in the doors of the temple.” (http://hiddenhumanstory.blogspot.com/2013/04/did-jews-worship-jupiter-also-known-as.html?m=1)
Now in the above article there was mention of Jupiter Sabazius. This was represented as the Cult of Zeus that the Jews worshipped. Who was Sabazius? “Sabazios (Ancient Greek: Σαβάζιος) is the nomadic horseman and sky father god of the Phrygians and Thracians. In Indo-European languages, such as Phrygian, the -zioselement in his name derives from dyeus, the common precursor of Latin deus (‘god’) and Greek Zeus. Though the Greeks interpretedPhrygian Sabazios as both Zeus and Dionysus, representations of him, even into Roman times, show him always on horseback, as a nomadic horseman god, wielding his characteristic staff of power….The first Jews who settled in Rome were expelled in 139 BCE, along with Chaldaean astrologers by Cornelius Hispalus under a law which proscribed the propagation of the “corrupting” cult of “Jupiter Sabazius,” according to the epitome of a lost book of Valerius Maximus:
Gnaeus Cornelius Hispalus, praetor peregrinus in the year of the consulate of Marcus Popilius Laenas and Lucius Calpurnius, ordered the astrologers by an edict to leave Rome and Italy within ten days, since by a fallacious interpretation of the stars they perturbed fickle and silly minds, thereby making profit out of their lies. The same praetor compelled the Jews, who attempted to infect the Roman custom with the cult of Jupiter Sabazius, to return to their homes.”
By this it is conjectured that the Romans identified the Jewish YHVH Tzevaot (“sa-ba-oth,” “of the Hosts”) as Jove Sabazius. This mistaken connection of Sabazios and Sabaos has often been repeated. In a similar vein, Plutarch maintained that the Jews worshipped Dionysus, and that the day of Sabbath was a festival of Sabazius…Transference of Sabazios to the Roman world appears to have been mediated in large part through Pergamum.(https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabazios)
Now Sabazius is equated with Jove who was Jupiter. Also notice that the transference of this cult to the Roman world happened at Pergamus. The seat of Satan in Revelation. Is this seat connected to Jupiter? Also notice the hand of Sabazius. Does that look familiar to the Mano Pantea that Jupiter Serapis is on? Think back to my study on the hidden hand…is this the hidden hand of Jupiter?
“Bronze hand used in the worship of Sabazios (British Museum). Roman 1st-2nd century CE. Hands decorated with religious symbols were designed to stand in sanctuaries or, like this one, were attached to poles for processional use. Another similar bronze hand found in the 16th/17th century in Tournai, Belgium, is also in the British Museum.”
“This copper alloy Roman hand of Sabazios was used in ritual worship. Few hands remain in collections today.”
Here are a few more bits of info on Jupiter. “The presence of a throne constellation is well known. There is a globe on which the chief constellations of the second century tury B.C.E. are depicted with their backs to the viewer, the famous Farnese sphere, an ancient copy of the more ancient sculpture ture (for photographs and explanation, see Thiele 1898:passim). Near the north pole over Leo and Cancer a throne is represented, resented, the thronus Caesaris. Pliny mentions the constellation “that in the reign of his late majesty Augustus received the name of Caesar’s Throne” (Natural History II, 178; LCL). The group of stars in which the sidus Iulium (star of Julius) appeared, the comet embodying the divine Caesar after his death, was designated as his “throne.” Another well-known “throne” in the sky is one on which Cassiopeia sits. For Hellenistic Egyptians, this throne is in the constellation of Virgo-Isis. This throne stands in the “atrium,” in an open temple above. All this was imagined in or on the sky. And Jupiter himself is often enthroned as celestial ruler in the zodiac, especially on coins (Thiele 1898:41). It was also current to depict a figure or a single star sitting on a throne formed of other stars. Hence the scenario of God’s throne on the sky, or of twenty-four elders enthroned there, was really quite well known. Surely it was not something esoteric, special knowledge available only to some privileged initiates.”
And if you remember, Virgo was represented as Isis who had Horus on her lap being breast fed. She was sitting on a throne.
“17:8 The Sea Beast of the vision is presently in the Abyss and will soon emerge before being totally destroyed. It is described as one who “was and is not,” and is going to come up from the Abyss before being totally destroyed. This chief celestial being is the Canaanite deity Ba’lu or Baal, the Syrian Adon or Adonis. In the cosmological theology of the eastern Mediterranean, Baal/Adonis (Roman Jupiter, Greek Zeus) is the consort of `Anat/Atargatis (Venus). As giver of fertility to humankind, Baal controls celestial phenomena such as rain, dew, lightning, thunder, and earthquakes. He annually disappears during the dry season, son, only to emerge with the autumn rains. All of this is indicated in the sky with the transit of respective constellations and planets. In other words, if any sky being “was, and is not, and is about to ascend from the bottomless pit;” it is Baal/Jupiter. The reemergence of this deity annually astonishes his devotees, that is those persons not listed in the scroll of life “from the foundation of the world.” (Mazzorath, or the Constellations by Francis Rolleston)
Here is something interesting about the Quaryish Tribe ie the Hashemites. “Mahomet’s grandfather is said to tried to persuade the Korish to leave their images and worship the star Sirius, adored by the tribe Kais. Some tribes worshipped Al Moshtari, the planet Jupiter;”. Al Moshtari was also called BERJĪS. “BERJĪS, Arabic word listed in the dictionaries as meaning the planet Jupiter (usually al-Moštarī in Arabic, Hormozd in Persian). Perhaps the most likely explanation of the word is that Berjīs was an original Bedouin name for the big, bright planet and had the astrological connotation of “water giving” or “milk giving,” a notion that would come naturally to the nomadic mind. This hypothesis is based on the possibility that the Arabic root bajasa (e/o), from which comes the adjective bajs or bajīs “abundantly flowing, pouring forth,” could be amplified by infixation of an intensifying r to form barjasa and therewith “birjīs” on the pattern of the noun form “qittīl” or “qitlīl.” This seems likely because the dictionaries attest another use of the word berjīs, as a feminine noun meaning “she-camel which gives abundant milk.”
“Less likely the word might be a borrowing, either from a Greek or Latin original ending in s or from a Persian original, such as *apargēs “hairy” in the sense of “radiant” or even aparvēž/z “victorious”, but apargēs is not attested and derivation from aparvēž presents phonetic difficulties. (On these possibilities, see W. Eilers, “Stern-Planet-Regenbogen. Zur Nomenklatur der orientalischen Himmelskunde,” in Der Orient in der Forschung, Festschrift für Otto Spies, 1967, pp. 125ff., 134ff.; idem, “Sinn und Herkunft der Planetennamen,” Sb. der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, Munich, 1976, no. 5, pp. 281ff.).” (http://www.iranicaonline.org/articles/berjis-arabic-word-listed-in-the-dictionaries-as-meaning-the-planet-jupiter-usually-al-mostari-in-arabic-hormozd-in-persia)
“Edinburgh Review on Delambre’s Ancient Astronomy “We find five of the planets mentioned so early as the time of Eratosthenes, more than a century before the Christian Era. He speaks of ‘Jupiter or Phainos, large. Phaethon, not large. The third is Mars, or Puroeides, the colour of fire, not large. Phosphorus or Venus, of a white colour, and the largest of all the stars. The fifth Mercury, or Stilbon, brilliant but small.’Phaethon, says M. Delambre, can only be Saturn. “Achilles Tatius, who wrote a commentary on Aratus about 300 years BC, speaks thus of the names and order of the planets among the Egyptians. ‘It is by euphemism that the Egyptians call Saturn Phainon, apparent, seeing it is the most obscure of the planets; the Egyptians also call it Nemesis. The second planet is Jupiter, which the Greeks call Phaethon, and the Egyptians Osiris. The third is Mars, which among the Greeks is Puroeis, and among the Egyptians the star of Hercules. The fourth is Mercury, Stilbon among the Greeks, and the star of Apollo among the Egyptians. The fifth is the planet Venus, which the Greeks call Heosphorus.’“Here it is observable that Eratosthenes and Achilles Tatius interchange the names of Jupiter and Saturn. Cicero calls Saturn, Phainon; Jupiter, Phaethon; Mars, Puroeis; Mercury, Stilbon; and Venus, Phosphorus and Lucifer.” (Mazzorath, or the Constellations by Francis Rolleston)
And here is my vague CERN connection. Do you remember that Jupiter now has 69 moons attached to it? Lets take a look at how these moons orbit Jupiter and how ot may or may not relate to CERN. Then look at how CERN accelerates particles. Kinda looks familiar huh? Jupiter has its RED eye and so does CERN.
And while I’m taking about Jupiter, let me throw in that they announced that Jupiter’s eye won’t be around for another generation. Does that sound like they are telegraphing anything? His time is short…
