Chapter10: The True Nature of Christ
When studying the Christian mysteries one stumbles upon what appear to be many contradictions within the scriptures. These contradictions generally arise between the Hebrew “Old Testament” and the Christian “New Covenant” within the “Judeo-Christian” religion. It will be demonstrated that these two terms should have never been placed together and that the original Christians were vehemently opposed to Judaism. At the time of the Council of Nicaea, when Constantine and his council of bishops compiled and canonized the Bible of today, much disagreement between the many “Christian” factions existed, which caused a schism within the early Christian world. The council of Nicaea was meant to quell those disagreements by formulating a “Catholic” or universal doctrine acceptable to the Pagans, Christians, and Jews. Yet this act by Constantine had consequences that Constantine himself could not have anticipated. On the one side of this disagreement were what are known as the “Gnostics” who were directly taught both exoteric and esoteric teachings through line of succession from the original apostles minus Paul and Peter. The other side of this disagreement was the “Orthodox” church who believed in the supposed revelations of the so called “Apostle Paul” who wasn’t even alive when Christ was Crucified.
Many Gnostics considered Paul to be an apostate, that he perverted the true message of Christ, and likewise was not privy to his secret teachings. The original apostles did not accept his supposed claims that he was made an apostle of Christ by the phantom Christ himself over 30 years after the ascension. Paul claimed to have met Jesus when he fell down on the way to Damascus. But he was the only one who saw Jesus, his companion did not, therefore; he claims to have met a Spiritual Jesus. But later he claimed that he saw Jesus in the flesh after resurrection (1 Cor 15:8), which is impossible since Jesus has already ascended to heaven at this time. Paul claimed that he received his knowledge of Jesus from no man; we also know from Paul’s epistles that there were others who taught “a different Christ”, showing that there was considerable diversity in the very early Christian community. Paul also wrote, and attributed to himself, sayings that would later be attributed to Jesus.
Proof within the scriptures also exists that Paul changed a lot of Jesus’ teachings. Jesus states in Matthew 5:18-19; “Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or title shall nowise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven.” Many confuse this passage as pertaining to Mosaic Law, though it is evident that Christ came to abolish Mosaic Law with a new set of teachings, which were far more complex than just ten rules. Paul abrogated the law of Christ when he said in Galatians 3:24-25; “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.” It is from Paul that we get the concept of “blind faith” or that faith is higher in respect to direct experience or knowledge. The Gnostics on the other hand believed that divinely acquired knowledge through direct mystical revelation superseded blind faith. This concept they called Gnosis, which translates as “knowledge” in Greek.
The Gnostic groups also did not accept Peter as the leader of the “true” church, as it was written that he denied Christ and thus lost the honor of leading the church. In this matter it was believed by the Gnostics that Mary Magdalene then became the new leader of the church after the crucifixion. It is written that Mary was the first apostle to see the risen Christ after his crucifixion and is expressed in the long lost “Gospel of Mary” discovered in 1896 in a 5th-century papyrus codex in Egypt. In chapter 9 of the Gospel of Mary it is recorded that she was given special knowledge and was called upon to teach this knowledge, but that Peter was jealous and contended with Mary for the position of the leader of the church, in Mary 9 it is written:
1) When Mary had said this, she fell silent, since it was to this point that the Savior had spoken with her.
2) But Andrew answered and said to the brethren, Say what you wish to say about what she has said. I at least do not believe that the Savior said this. For certainly these teachings are strange ideas.
3) Peter answered and spoke concerning these same things.
4) He questioned them about the Savior: Did He really speak privately with a woman and not openly to us? Are we to turn about and all listen to her? Did He prefer her to us?
5) Then Mary wept and said to Peter, My brother Peter, what do you think? Do you think that I have thought this up myself in my heart, or that I am lying about the Savior?
6) Levi answered and said to Peter, Peter you have always been hot tempered.
7) Now I see you contending against the woman like the adversaries.
8) But if the Savior made her worthy, who are you indeed to reject her? Surely the Savior knows her very well.
9) That is why He loved her more than us. Rather let us be ashamed and put on the perfect Man, and separate as He commanded us and preach the gospel, not laying down any other rule or other law beyond what the Savior said.
10) And when they heard this they began to go forth to proclaim and to preach.
Even within the teachings of Paul we find that early on in Peters church women were accepted as spiritual equals and could become leaders within the church. Women who were church overseers include Priscilla, Phoebe, Euodia, Syntyche, Chloe, Lydia, and Nympha. Then later we read that dogma against women as leaders within the church was instituted, and strict rules imposed, which barred women from even speaking within the church. 1 Corinthians 14:34, 35 states:
“Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church.”
This defamation of women within the church was a backlash against the Gnostic Church of Mary, who revered Mary Magdalene as their matron. The Catholic Church in later years went to such lengths at defaming the original Gnostic Church (Mary’s Church) that they instituted a smear campaign against Mary Magdalene attempting to portray her as a prostitute, though no such account exists within the pages of the Bible. Since the Dark Ages the Catholics have engaged in many campaigns to cover-up there illegitimacy, from the institutional murder of heretics and members of the royal lines descended from the bloodline shared by Christ. Though it seems the Protestants are no better as they accept the same Bible as the Catholics, which is both incomplete and filled with false doctrine.
Amongst these radical divergences in canonized Judeo-Christian dogma, the Gnostics also did not even recognize the Hebrew Old Testament as a part of their religion, for as it was said by Christ himself that he came to replace the “Old Covenant”. They believed that Jehovah was not the true God, and that the authors of the Old Testament (the Jewish Patriarchs) were deceived and in fact were in league with an evil being who they called the Demiurge (Set or Satan). The Demiurge was said to have been the being who fashioned the world yet was not the creator of the essence of which the world was fashioned, which was considered to be uncreated and eternal. To the Gnostics God was the infinite and eternal essence of the cosmos, and was never created yet has always existed, incomprehensible to anyone trapped in the mental delusion of egocentric temporal identity, a concept with many parallels in the ancient Eastern mystery schools established by the Aryans.
Most shockingly we find that the Gnostics believed that Christ and Lucifer were one and the same, and that Satan and Lucifer were in fact two separate beings, Satan being the alter ego of Jehovah, and Lucifer being an allusion to the true nature of Christ, which translates as “the Light Barer” (the Latin name for the morning star.) In the Old Testament book of Isaiah we find that the Hebrews had a very poor opinion of the Morning Star who they called “Helel”. Isaiah 14:12 in the New International Version reads:
“How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!”
In the old Latin Vulgate the word Lucifer was used for morning star in this passage to translate the Hebrew words Helel (Venus as the brilliant, bright or shining one), “son of Shahar (Dawn)” (Venus at dawn, i.e. the morning star.) In the Greek Septuagint the word “Heosphoros” is used as the word for Helel as a combination of the word “Hesperus” (the evening star) and the word Eosphorus (the morning star) two astronomical manifestations of Venus, though this was a slight mistranslation as the word Shahar is a direct reference to Venus at dawn or the morning star. This was corrected later by the Vatican with the word Lucifer (the Latin name for Venus as the morning star.) Christ also proclaimed himself with the title of the Morning Star. Revelations 22:16 in the New International Version reads:
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
In the Latin Vulgate the words used for morning star in this passage is “stella splendida et matutina”, which shows that the Vatican recognized the inconsistency in their “Judeo-Christian” doctrine and attempted to cover it up by using different words for the same title. These inconsistencies show that the Vatican knew the de facto nature of Christ as the contemporary incarnation of the ancient Pagan sun god, harkening to the time of Constantine who was the first pope as well as the high priest of Sol Invictus. In the Pagan world the title of morning star was given also to the son of the sun god as Venus appears brightest as the Morning Star shortly after dawn. Thus the morning star is the Son of the Most High God, i.e. the Sun God. Many archetypal pagan deities shared this allusion of Morning Star, from the West to the East we find in the civilizations founded by the ancient Aryans archetypal Christ-Like figures who share more than a coincidental likeness to the story of Christ. Some come as healers, while others are warriors, shedding light on the duel nature of Christ prophesied as a destroyer and leader of armies within the revelation of the second coming within Christian tradition. What follows are the many Christ-like archetypes from Aryan founded cultures from around the world, further proving the cultural connection that the ancient Aryan civilization was global:
Krishna, of India, was born on December 25, to a virgin mother named Devaki in a stable. He was the incarnation of Vishnu (the most-high god of the Hindus). A title of Krishna, meaning “love or devotion,” was Yesu, similar to the alternate spelling of Jesus, Yeshua. His uncle, Kamsa, the ruler at the time of his birth sought to kill Krishna because he had heard a Prophecy that Krishna would overthrow him. Krishna escaped death by being smuggled out of the area by his mother and adopted father to Mathura, India similar in spelling to Maturai, Egypt where Christ was smuggled to safety. In this incarnation Krishna appeared as a destroyer, alleviating the warrior Arjuna’s moral dilemma during a battle with family members, by convincing him to annihilate them as retribution for their wickedness and the will of the divine. Krishna was later killed by a hunter’s arrow and impaled on a tree, then was resurrected and appeared to his disciples after his resurrection.
Buddha, of India, was born on the morning of December 25th; his virgin mother’s name was Maya (similar to Mary). Hence he was immaculately conceived, and at birth, he was announced by a seer to be a savior of the world and was destined to either be a great warlord or a great guru. His birth also was announced by a star. At his birth, he was visited by Wise Men who declared that they had seen Signs of his birth, that is to say, signs of the royal birth.
Mithra, of Persia, born on December 25, his birth was witnessed by Shepherds that brought gifts to honor him. He was styled as a Mediator between God and Man. “Mithraism was similar to Christianity in many respects, for example, in the ideals of humility and brotherly love, baptism, the rite of communion, the use of holy water, the adoration of the shepherds at Mithra’s birth, the adoption of Sundays and of December 25 (Mithra’s birthday) as holy days, and the belief in the immortality of the soul, the last judgment, and the resurrection. Mithraism differed from Christianity in the exclusion of women from its ceremonies and in its willingness to compromise with polytheism. The similarities, however, made possible the easy conversion of its followers to Christian doctrine.
Horus, of Egypt, was born on December 25. His mother, the virgin Isis, gave birth to him in a cave/manger. His birth was announced by a star and attended by three wise men. He came to fulfill the law as the incarnation of the sun god Amen-Ra. He was called “KRST,” the “Anointed One.” Isis was warned by the god of wisdom, Thoth, to flee and conceal the child from the evil Set. Set had killed the father of Horus, whose name was Osiris, and sought to kill Horus, as well. At age 12 he was a child teacher in the Temple, then after having disappeared for 18 years (at the age of 30) he was baptized in the river Larutana, (the Egyptian name for the river Jordan) by “Anup the Baptizer,” who was beheaded. He performed miracles, exorcised demons, raised El-Azarus (El-Osiris) from the dead, walked on water, was betrayed by Typhon, crucified between two thieves on the 17th day of the month of Athyr, buried in a tomb from which he arose on the third day (19th of Athyr) and was resurrected. His suffering, death, and resurrection was celebrated each year by His disciples on the Vernal Equinox (Easter). He was called “The Way, the Truth, and the Light,” “God’s Anointed Son,” the “Son of Man,” the “Word made Flesh,” the “word of truth,” and was expected to reign a thousand years.
Thulis of Egypt (also known as Zulis,) is recorded by Suidas to have reigned with an iron fist over all of Egypt, and that his empire extended even over the ocean. His name was derived from one of the isles of his empire, where his family line had descended from, and is where the term Ultima Thule was derived. Ultima Thule was the island which marked the ultimate bounds of his extensive island/coastal empire. He is recorded to have died on the cross about thirty-seven hundred years ago, when the Egyptians seized him after consulting a seer concerning the nature of the trinity. It is said that twenty-eight lotus plants grow near his grave to indicate the number of years he lived on the earth. After suffering the violence of crucifixion, he was buried, yet rose again, ascended into heaven, and there became the judge of the dead, or of souls in a future state.
Beddou (Fot) was a god of the Cashmere Province of China born 1027 BC, his mother was a virgin, and he was born of royal blood. The king sought to kill him at birth, because he felt the newborn infant posed a future threat to his Throne. The god child was saved by shepherds, and lived in the desert till he reached the age of thirty, at which time he commenced teaching his spiritual doctrine to that religion and roamed the countryside casting out devils and healing the sick. He performed a multitude of miracles, spent his life fasting, and in severe ascetic mortifications. He is recorded to have been crucified upon a tree as atonement for the sins of the world. Before his death he gave his disciples a tome in which was recorded the principles of his religion.
Quetzalcoatl was the bearded, White, archetypal god of the Aztecs, known in earlier Mesoamerican cultures by different names such as Kukulkan, Votan, and Viracocha. He was born of a virgin on December 25th, and was said to be the earthly incarnation of the sun god. He sojourned in the wilderness, fasted forty days, and was crucified alongside two thieves on top of a mountain. He was commonly represented as the God of light that struggled against the god of darkness called Tezcatlipoca. The hieroglyphic symbol which represented him was the image of a pierced hand.
Hercules, son of the god Zeus and a virgin mortal woman was predestined by birth to inherit the throne of Argos. Hera, the jealous wife of Zeus desired the throne for another and sought to delay the birth of Hercules, and subsequently tried to kill Hercules while in his crib, by sending two snakes to strangle him. Hercules killed the snakes, though he was less than a year old. He was sent away into hiding to the countryside where he became a shepherd. Later in life he engaged in many battles of which he was victorious, killing evil men and monsters, and becoming a great king. He died by burning himself alive on a funeral pyre after being accidentally poisoned by his jealous wife Demurer.
Attis, of Phrygia, was born on December 25th of a virgin named Nana. He was considered the savior who was slain for the salvation of mankind. His body as bread was eaten by his worshippers. He was both the Divine Son and the Father. On “Black Friday,” he was crucified on a tree, from which his holy blood ran down to redeem the earth. He then descended into the underworld, and after three days, Attis was resurrected on March 25th. Attis was represented as a man tied to a tree, at the foot of which was a lamb.
Tammuz was born on December 25th to his virgin mother Ishtar. Tammuz was hailed as the only begotten son of the god Ea and was considered in later times to be the reincarnation of Nimrod, the Sun God. He was a shepherd and a healer of the sick and lame, and was crucified as an atonement for mans sins. He was mentioned in Ezekiel 8 in a very unfavorable light, proving once again that the Hebrews detested the ancient archetype of Christ. According to scholars, the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem is built over a cave that was originally a shrine to Adonis-Tammuz.
The Celtic Druids depict their god Hesus as having been crucified with a lamb on one side and an elephant on the other, and that this occurred long before the Christian era. The elephant, being the largest animal known, was chosen to represent the magnitude of the sins of the world, while the lamb, from its proverbial innocent nature, was chosen to represent the innocence of the victim offered as a propitiatory sacrifice. We have the Lamb of God taking away the sins of the world. The Lamb of God could therefore have been borrowed from the Druids who were directly descended from the priesthoods of Atlantis. This legend was found in Celtic Gaul long before Jesus Christ was known to history.
