On September 23rd wineries in Northern California and Oregon had their annual grape stomping harvest festivals. The most famous grape stomping was on I Love Lucy when Lucille Ball made a comedy relief about it. But where does grape stomping come from. My first thought about this event comes from Scripture. Jesus tells us that in His divine judgement He treads the winepress.
Isaiah 63:1-6 Who is this who comes from Edom, With garments of glowing colors from Bozrah, This One who is majestic in His apparel, Marching in the greatness of His strength? “It is I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.” Why is Your apparel red, And Your garments like the one who treads in the wine press? “I have trodden the wine trough alone, And from the peoples there was no man with Me I also trod them in My anger And trampled them in My wrath; And their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments, And I stained all My raiment.
Joel 3:13 Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe Come, tread, for the wine press is full; The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great.
Revelation 14:17-20 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God.
Revelation 19:11-16 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
Revelation 14:18-19 Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God.
Now the significance of this grape stomping for me personally is the date that this event was held this year. It just happened to fall on the false sign of September 23rd. Grape stomping, like I mentioned, is symbolic of a harvest but in the case of Jesus, its not only a harvest but a form of divine judgement. As on 9/23, I personally think it was the beginning of this divine judgement for America.
Now this grape stomping festival wasn’t just at a few places. It was all over. I did a quick Google search and here is the first page. They all just happened to be on this same day.
Its interesting that 8 days later from 9/23 (I’ve mentioned the satanic mockery of this 8th day circumcision) we saw another harvest festival that involved ritual killings. This was Las Vegas on October 1st. A few days later we saw the grape harvest turn to ashes with the Northern California fires. 27 wineries near Santa Rosa and Napa Valley burned to the ground. Their are expecting no wine next year from this harvest. Not only that, the world is expecting a wine shortage in 2018. Symbolically to me, that means no blessing and a sign of judgement. And you add that to the grape stomping festival on this spiritual 9/23 birth, the world has itself a problem.
One other thing about the harvest that I mentioned in the Santa Rosa Laser paper is the relation I see symbolically with the Rev 9 locusts not being able to harm anything green. If you look at the fires in Santa Rosa that is exactly what happened with the preciseness of the fire. If you haven’t read my paper on it I suggest you do. And I do not see that fulfilling scripture for Rev 9 but a type and shadow in the physical world we are in. Spiritually we are seeing a seperation of the sheep and goats.
So we can see scripturally and Biblically what grape stomping represents but what does it mean to the heathen and pagan? Here is a little history. “Grape stomping,is part of a method of maceration used in traditional winemaking, wherein the grapes and stems are mashed together, releasing not only the juice from the grapes, but also the phenols and tannins that provide color and acidity. Rather than using a wine press or other mechanized method, grapes were crushed by foot in open vats to release their juices and begin fermentation. The French word pigeage is also often seen in connection with grape stomping, but pigeage, which literally means “punching down the cap,” describes the pushing down of the grape skins that float to the surface of the fermentation vats, forming a “cap.”
Grape stomping probably goes back to the very beginnings of winemaking. Historical evidence shows that grapes were stomped at least as far back as Rome in 200 BC. One of the earliest existing visual representations of the practice appears on a Roman sarcophagus which depicts a group of demigods harvesting and stomping grapes at a rural Roman festival.” (http://ubiquitouswisdom.com/stomping-grapes-or-making-wine/)
So this comes from the Roman period and demigods (false gods) were the perpetrators of this. “One of the earliest extant visual representations of the practice appears on a Roman Empire sarcophagus from the 3rd century AD, which depicts an idealized pastoral scene with a group of Erotes harvesting and stomping grapes at Vindemia, a rural Roman vintage festival.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grape_stomping)
“The Erotes (/əˈroʊtiːz/) are a collective of winged gods associated with love and sexual intercourse in Greek mythology. They are part of Aphrodite’s retinue. Erotes (Greek ἔρωτες) is the plural of Eros (“Love, Desire”), who as a singular deity has a more complex mythology.
Other named Erotes are Anteros (“Love Returned”), Himeros (“Impetuous Love” or “Pressing Desire”), Hedylogos (“Sweet-talk”), Hymenaios (“Bridal-Hymn”), Hermaphroditus (“Hermaphrodite” or “Effeminate”), and Pothos (“Desire, Longing,” especially for one who is absent).
The Erotes became a motif of Hellenistic art, and may appear in Roman art in the alternate form of multiple Cupids or Cupids and Psyches. In the later tradition of Western art, erotes become indistinguishable from figures also known as Cupids, amorini, or amoretti.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erotes)
So these “demigods” representing a harvest were sexual gods that involved intercourse. This was a type of ritual that leads to a covenant if it is involving sex. And these “demigods” were hermaphrodites and effeminate. “Hermaphroditus, the two-sexed child of Aphrodite and Hermes (Venus and Mercury) had long been a symbol of androgyny or effeminacy, and was portrayed in Greco-Roman art as a female figure with male genitals.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermaphroditus)
So there you have it. A ritual grape stomping on 9/23 that was originally started by “demigods” who were hermaphrodites turned androgynous (think Baphomet ie Lucifer). Its no wonder why this grape harvest burned to the ground. And now you know why LUCY of all names was chosen to make the grape stomping “hillarious”. And get this, we even have 2 of the wandering stars (Venus and Mercury) of this false sign showing up. Why am I not surprised? Another birth ritual that is bringing about judgement.
Little did they know that they were symbolically bringing about the birth of this ancient Antichrist spirit with thr ancient ritual of grape stomping.
