Before I get into what I want to talk about I want to say this first, in regards to Jesus and this so called Jupiter connection. Jesus saw Rome worship Jupiter. He knew firsthand that they were worshipping Jupiter. This is a fact. So was Rome worshipping Jesus? No. They worshipped Jupiter Serapis. Why didn’t Rome recognize Jesus as representing Jupiter and just worship Jesus instead? Because Jesus was never literally Jupiter and the Church was never a representation of a baby Jupiter. To represent yourself as a group, like Jupiter, only means you are following Rome. Your god is Jupiter Serapis, the false Gnostic christ. You are not following Jesus.
There is a reason as to why Constantine morphed Rome with Christianity. Christianity had a lot of followers and the easiest way to get these followers to yoke with Rome is to take their Jesus and turn Him into Jupiter Serapis. This is what we have today. And don’t forget, the first Roman emporer Augustus was born on September 23rd, a symbolic birthing of Jupiter Serapis. “In the Roman East, the birthday of Augustus on September 23 was the first day of the new year on some calendars, including possibly the calendar of Heliopolis (Baalbek in present-day Lebanon).” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_(Roman_month)) You can also find a few other births in the Roman Empire in September, Aurelian on the 9th, Trajan on the 18th and Antoninus Pius on the 19th. Congratulations 923 cult, your more screwed up then you thought.
Rome believed all authority was granted to them by Jupiter. So why didn’t Rome recognize Jesus as Jupiter if that was the case? Jesus made The claim that He was God and Rome didn’t say “oh yeah, your right! You are representation of Jupiter right!” They never said that. In fact they recognised Jesus as a “crazy man” and not like their god Jupiter. Jesus was not even a type of Jupiter at the time of Rome’s rule and Jews recognised this. And if any group thought of themselves as a “baby Jupiter”, it was definitely the Roman people.
“The Romans believed that Jupiter granted them supremacy because they had honoured him more than any other people had. Jupiter was “the fount of the auspices upon which the relationship of the city with the gods rested.” He personified the divine authority of Rome’s highest offices, internal organization, and external relations. His image in the Republican and Imperial Capitol bore regalia associated with Rome’s ancient kings and the highest consular and Imperial honours…The consuls swore their oath of office in Jupiter’s name, and honoured him on the annual feriae of the Capitol in September. (http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Jupiter_(mythology)
So as you can see, Jupiter was the main god that Rome worshipped. But it wasn’t just Rome. You can find Jupiter worship on the “Temple Mount” in Jerusalem and At Baalbek in Lebanon. These are just a few places because Jupiter worship was prevelant in a lot of different societies. Rome had made there own form of Jupiter worship from taking Egypt’s Osiris and the Apis bull which was Serapis. They called this Jupiter Serapis. Like I said, it was a mixture of Osiris, the Apis and the Zeus. JupEssentially this just represents the lord of the air, Baal.
“Jupiter was known as “Baal’s Planet” in the Panarion. The Panarion was literature that was against heresys. These psuedo Christians worshipped Jupiter Serapis, this is another historical fact. Things haven’t changed have they. “Jupiter: Known as ‘Baal’s Planet’ it was a traditional name which means ‘justice’.” (http://www.actforlibraries.org/the-hebrew-names-of-the-seven-planets/)
“Jupiter: Rabbinic: צדק Ṣeḏeq ”righteous” (perhaps invented against the deified names Jupiter and Zeus); Panarion: כוכב בעל Kōwḵāḇ Baʕal ”Star Baal” (Baal = ”lord”).” (http://ancient-hebrew.proboards.com/thread/3542/hebrew-names-7-celestial-bodies#ixzz4rXAWKpHh)
“Panarion – In early Christian heresiology, the Panarion (Greek: Πανάριον, derived from Latin, panarium, meaning “bread basket”), to which 16th-century Latin translations gave the name Adversus Haereses (Latin: “Against Heresies”), is the most important of the works of Epiphanius of Salamis (d. 403). It was written in Koine Greek beginning in 374 or 375, and issued about three years later, as a treatise on heresies, with its title referring to the text as a “stock of remedies to offset the poisons of heresy.” It treats 80 religious sects, either organized groups or philosophies, from the time of Adam to the latter part of the 4th century, detailing their histories, and rebutting their beliefs. The Panarion is an important source of information on the Jewish Gospels, the Gospel of the Ebionites, and the Gospel of the Hebrews.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panarion)
Let me also make mention of this that happens around the 21-23 of September. “The Aëtius parapegma is an almanac that appears as a chapter in the 6th-century Tetrabiblos of Aëtius of Amida. It treats the rising and setting of constellations, weather forecasting, and medical advice as closely intertwined, and notes of the equinox (placed on September 25) that “There is the greatest disturbance in the air for three days previous. Thus it is necessary to be careful neither to phlebotomize, nor purge, nor otherwise to change the body violently from the 15th of September through the 24th.” The passage is presented as advice for physicians, based on the principle that “the bodies of healthy people, and especially those of sick people, change with the condition of the air”.” (http://www.wikiwand.com/en/September_(Roman_month) You can’t change anything about yourself while Baal the lord of the air is prevelant.
And those that were associated with these types of ceremonies were called augers. Now does that ring a bell? This is where we get our English word inauguration from. “The augures publici, augurs were a college of sacerdotes who were in charge of all inaugurations and of the performing of ceremonies known as auguria. Their creation was traditionally ascribed to Romulus. They were considered the only official interpreters of Jupiter’s will, thence they were essential to the very existence of the Roman State as Romans saw in Jupiter the only source of state authority.” (http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Jupiter_(mythology)
So now that is out of the way, lets talk about these Jupiter nails I mentioned at the beginning. There was what is called clavus annalis (“year-nail”) that happens in September in the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus (Jupiter Best and Greatest). “In Republican Rome, the senior magistrate on the Ides of September drove a nail called the clavus annalis (“year-nail”) into the wall of the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus. The ceremony occurred on the dies natalis of the temple, when the banquet for Jove was also held. The nail-driving ceremony, however, took place in a sacred space (templum) devoted to Minerva, on the right side of the shrine (aedes) of Jupiter…Instead, about half the month is devoted to the Ludi Romani, “Roman Games”, which developed as votive games for Jupiter Optimus Maximus (“Jupiter Best and Greatest”). The Ludi Romani are the oldest games instituted by the Romans, dating from 509 BC. On the Ides of September (the 13th), Jupiter was honored with a public banquet, the Epulum Jovis. A nail-driving ritual in the temple marked the passing of the political year during the Republican era, and in the earliest period, the consuls took office on the Ides of September.” (http://www.wikiwand.com/en/September_(Roman_month)
“The metaphor of driving a nail into something was also significant to the Ancient Romans outside of this ceremony. The Romans had a phrase “Clavum fingere“, which literally means “to nail in, to fasten or fix the nail”. The significance of this phrase, however, was tied to the strength of the connection between the nail and the surface. It was a phrase that alluded to the fixing or the “sealing” of fate. Livy recalled a more protective superstition surrounding a ceremonial nail-driving. In the early Republic it was associated with the appointment of a dictator clavi figendi causa, translated as “dictator for the purpose of driving the nail”. It is recorded that a dictator was appointed in 363, 331, 313, and 263 BCE. Livy recalled that in 363 Rome had been swept over by a terrible plague which had lingered for two years. After a dictator completed the nail-driving ritual the plague broke. The significance of the clavus annalis is generally thought to have been a ceremony to mark the years as they passed, given the name of the ceremony, but a little research into the attitudes and rituals of these ancient people reveals a very rich cultural and multilayered understanding of one ceremonial act that spans hundreds of years of history.” (https://blogs.transparent.com/latin/seal-your-fate-the-ides-of-september/)
When I read about this nail-driving ritual it made me think of a few things. I first thought about the Roman crucifixion and its history. Here is a brief rundown. Around 519bc “Darius I, king of Persia, crucified 3,000 political opponents in Babylon” (Encyclopaedia Britannica, crucifixion) “The Eerdman’s Bible Dictionary”, Rev. Ed., 1975: CROSS … Crucifixion is first attested among the Persians (cf. Herodotus, Hist. i.128.2; iii.132.2, 159.1), perhaps derived from the Assyrian impalement. It was later employed by the Greeks, especially Alexander the Great, and by the Carthaginians, from whom the Romans adapted the practice as a punishment for slaves and non-citizens, and occasionaly for citizens guilty of treason. Although in the Old Testament the corpses of blasphemers or idolaters punished by stoning might be handged “on a tree” as further humiliation (Deut. 21:23), actual crucifixion was not introduced in Palestine until Hellenistic times. The Seleucid Antiochus IV Epiphanes crucified those Jews who would not accept hellenization (Josephus Ant. xii.240-41; cf 1 Macc. 1:44-50).” (http://www.bible.ca/d-history-archeology-crucifixion-cross.htm)
So historically you can see that it may have come from the Persians who may have gotten it from the Assyrians. Then the Romans developed and perfected their crucifixion from the Greeks and Carthaginians. Now why do I bring the crucifixion up? Because it is completely obvious that Rome in the time of Jesus worshipped Jupiter. That is an absolute fact. So it made me stop to think about the nails that were used for crucifixions. Were these same nails that were used for crucifixions also dedicated to their god Jupiter? I think that’s an honest question. I mean come on, everything Rome did was dedicated to Jupiter. They wouldn’t and didn’t do anything without first dedicating it to Jupiter. It’s no different than us as Christians praying In Jesus Name or a Muslim cutting meat and having “allah” bless it. The Romans were no different. So once again, were crucifixions sacrifices to their god Jupiter? Was Jesus hung on the cross as a sacrifice to Jupiter (Baal). But they had no clue what was going to happen 3 days later now did they? That’s the great part of this story.
So we can see there may be more to this nail driving ceremony that what some historians have told us. Now do you remember back to the time right before the Exodus about a something called the Passover? Of course you do. Do you remember how this very first Passover was a typeology of the crucifixion of Jesus, the lamb slain from the foundation of the world? The Hebrews had to put blood from a lamb on the sides of the door and over the door so that when the angel of death passed over, he would see this blood from a lamb placed there, then he would continue to pass over the house and not kill the firstborn male? This was obviously a type of the crucifixion of Jesus. We all recognize this as a type of Jesus’ crucifixion to fulfill Passover.
The passing over the houses would tell the Angel of Death who were the Hebrews and who were the Egyptians. The two blood stains on the sides of the door represented the wounds from the nails in the hands of Jesus. I came across a book the other day that is called “A Coptic Handbook of Ritual Power”. Its described as being pre-Islamic and was find in Upper Egypt. “It consists of an invocation including both Christian and Gnostic elements, ritual instructions, and a list of twenty-seven spells to cure demonic possession, various ailments, the effects of magic, or to bring success in love and business. The codex is not only a substantial new addition to the corpus of magical texts from Egypt, but, in its opening invocation, also provides new evidence for Sethian Gnostic thought in Coptic texts.” (http://www.brepols.net/Pages/ShowProduct.aspx?prod_id=IS-9782503531700-1)
“The researchers found love spells, a means for casting out evil spirits and even ideas on how to treat ailments, such as one known as black jaundice. They also found multiple references to Jesus and Sethians—religious groups that identified with Adam and Eve’s third son, and others that identified with a previously unknown character referred to as Baktiotha—a god-like figure.” The translation of the words written, a little more than 1,000 years ago, is “I give thanks to you and I call upon you, the Baktiotha: The great one, who is very trustworthy; the one who is lord over the forty and the nine kinds of serpents.” Scholars are still attempting to figure out who Baktiotha is. However, it is now commonly believed that the mysterious figure is not a person, but a representation of power over the masses.” (http://stepfeed.com/thousand-year-old-egyptian-handbook-of-ritual-power-deciphered-5335) ://www.educatinghumanity.com/2014/11/ancient-egyptian-handbook-of-spells.html?m=1) “The Baktiotha is an ambivalent figure. He is a great power and a ruler of forces in the material realm,” Choat and Gardner said at a conference, before their book on the codex was published.” (http://www.educatinghumanity.com/2014/11/ancient-egyptian-handbook-of-spells.html?m=1)
Here is a little bit of etymology of the word Baktiotha. “Before discussing this new etymology, it is worth briefly summarising thesections of the invocation which relate to Baktiotha. He is described as being both ‘great’ (ⲛⲟϭ) and ‘very trustworthy’ (<ⲛ>ϩⲧⲉⲙⲁⲧⲉ), as being lord over 49 kinds (ⲅⲉⲛⲟⲥ,ⲫⲩⲗⲉ) of serpents who are servants (ϩⲉⲙϩⲁⲗ) to him. These serpents are described as being in the abyss (ⲡⲛⲟⲩⲛ) and in the air (ⲡⲁⲏⲣ), deaf (ⲕⲟⲩⲫⲟⲥ,ⲕⲟⲩⲗ) and blind (ⲃⲉⲗⲉ), seeing and hearing, known and unknown; his fear is over them all (ⲧⲉ[ϥ]ϩⲟⲧⲉⲧⲉⲧϩⲓϫⲱⲟⲩ). Despite the brevity of this description, it is clear that Baktiotha is an importantfigure within these texts, and part of an elaborate mythic schema. Immediatelyobvious is the -ⲱⲑⲁ ending common to many voces magicae, based on the Hebrew feminine plural ending, and used alongside other similar terminations to impart a ‘Jewish’ flavour to such names; 5 in the case of -ⲱⲑ(ⲁ) we areprobably dealing with an Aramaicised version, with the final alpha representing the postpositive particle -. 6 Removing this ending, we are left with ⲃⲁⲕⲧⲓ, which I would suggest canbe derived from the Egyptian word bꜢk.tı̓w, the most common native term for the stellar deities known in English as ‘decans’, from the Greek δεκανοί. The immediate problem we must deal with is its vocalisation, since it is only attested in hieroglyphic sources. The word is a plural ‘nisbe’ agentis, ‘those who work’,deriving from the root bꜢk , ‘to work’.” (http://www.academia.edu/30463855/Baktiotha_The_Origin_of_a_Magical_Name_in_P.Macq._I_1)
So you can see that this entity that is invoked is the lord (baal) of the serpents from the abyss and air. This can only mean that it represents Satan in the form of Ba’al and in most scholarly circles, this represents the one and only Jupiter. Now this word ‘deacons’ is interesting. This above article says this.
“The decans were a series of 36 stars or constellations located close to the ecliptic whose risings, or later, transits, served to keep track of hours, ten-day periods, and ultimately years; the decans were positioned so that a new one rose or trans-ited at intervals marking the hours. During the period in which they served to tell the hours of the night they were said to be ‘working’, thus earning them their designation, ‘those who work’. Twelve such hours would typically pass eachnight, and over a period of ten days each decan would rise and transit one hour earlier. The whole cycle would take a year to complete, beginning once more with the heliacal rising of the decan Sothis (Sirius), signalling the inundation.
The decans accumulated a great deal of mythological associations overthe centuries, and from the Ramesside period an iconographical developmenttook place whereby they began to be depicted as leonine or, more commonly,serpentine deities. This connection between decans and other astral deities,and serpents, is most explicitly stated in the Book of the Heavenly Cow, whereit is said that “the souls of all the gods [i.e. the stars] are in the snakes”. Closer to our period, we find hundreds of amulets depicting the decan knm.t (Χνουμη etc.) as a lion-headed serpent. That this association between the decans and serpents carried on into Coptic times is suggested by a passage in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ , in which the sons of Death are described as decans ‘in the form of winding serpents.”
The connection between this lord Baktiotha and these deacons is interesting. This is the reason as to why you have statues and idols of these false gods. They are representing these “deacons”. Ironically if you notice that They mention these amulets that have lion headed serpents on them. And the writer doesn’t mence his words when these deacons are on the form of winding serpents. The lion is used for its kingly aspect and mockery of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. And the serpent represents Satan in the garden which in their minds represents the healing aspect. “You will be as gods”. Remember who said that? He was getting them to believe They needed to be healed of the state they were originally in only to figure out that they were heading to a fallen state. Now back to the lion headed snake. Look at the idol below. Is Jupiter Serapis. His hair and beard looks like a Lions mane with the tail of a snake. So was Baktiotha associated with Jupiter?
We know the term deacon is used in Scripture. Now when looking at these “heavenly deacons” in light of what is going on now it gets a little strange. 1st Timothy 3:8-13 mentions these deacons in the Church. Here are verse 8-9 specifically. “Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.” Now Strong’s defines a deacon as “one who executes the commands of another, especially of a master, a servant, attendant, minister; specifically a Christian teacher and pastor (technically a deacon or deaconess)”. So a deacon in the Church in the Church needs to not be “doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre”. Ask yourself, does this sound like a lot of christian teachers that are promoting this false pre-trib doctrine along with the false sign of Rev 12? These people are more concerned with making money from books and YouTube videos. And not only that, when what they “prophesied” doesn’t come to pass then they double speak and say something else will happen at another time. We may be witnessing these false deacons or goats according to this false Rev 12 sign on 9/23.
So nack to this ritualistic text. They believe it has Gnostic Christian influences because of the mention of Jesus in different invocations. But this wasn’t the Biblical Jesus, obviously. This was Jupiter Serapis who was worshipped by “Christians” in Egypt at this time. I talk about this in my book. The one thing that caught my attention was a ritual it talks about. “The ancient book “starts with a lengthy series of invocations that culminate with drawings and words of power,” they write. “These are followed by a number of prescriptions or spells to cure possession by spirits and various ailments, or to bring success in love and business.” For instance, to subjugate someone, the codex says you have to say a magical formula over two nails, and then “drive them into his doorpost, one on the right side (and) one on the left.” (http://www.educatinghumanity.com/2014/11/ancient-egyptian-handbook-of-spells.html?m=1)
It seems like we have come full circle with these Jupiter nails. Instead of blood of THE Lamb (Jesus) fulfilling the Passover and redeeming Creation from a sinful fallen state, we have the nails of Jupiter going back into the sides of a doorway being used in incantations. “You have to say a magical formula over two nails, and then “drive them into his doorpost, one on the right side (and) one on the left.” These Luciferians hate what Jesus has given us and Jesus has defeated death and there demonic rituals.
I will leave you with this. There is an occult view as to why nails are used for doors and crucifixions. “The thing or power being fixed by the nail to person, place or object can be manifold; even celestial powers corresponding to the time at which the nail was struck into its medium can be bound into workings. Herein we understand the basis of hammering various amulets into the lintel above the threshold, such as the apotropaic images of the sun, open hand or ubiquitous horseshoe. Contrary to popular belief, nails are as protective as the horseshoes they affix. Indeed, Pliny the Elder advised hammering three iron nails, not horseshoes, into the threshold’s lintel to protect the home, likewise Paul Huson in Mastering Witchcraft advocated driving three iron coffin nails into the door, one above and two below in triangular formation. Similarly, protective enclosures are fashioned by striking nails into their four corners and wandering spirits are stopped by hammering nails into their coffins, whilst Romans averted plague and misfortune by driving nails into house walls…Crucifixion & sacrifice by hanging upon a tree is not a motif exclusive to the Christian mythos, rather it is a fate met by many deathless mortals so as to grant eternal life, including “Prometheus, Adonis, Apollo, Arys, Bacchus, Buddha, Christna, Horus, Indra, Ixion, Mithras, Osiris, Pythagoras, Quetzalcoatl, Semiramis and Jupiter” (https://threehandspress.com/concerning-the-use-symbolism-of-nails-by-martin-duffy/)
Do you notice Jupiter on the cover of this book?
