Those familiar with the Worldwide Church of God know that after
many years of observing what most would call "Jewish Holidays" but with
Christian significance, the Church has now switched to the more
generically acceptable Christian holidays, such as Easter and Christmas.
In the past, these Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Fall Equinox and
Winter Solstice holidays were replaced by the recognition of Passover
over Easter in the Spring and the Festival of Tabernacles in the Fall
over Christmas. While no religious holy day springs from a vacuum, and
the Jewish Holy Days, also sprang from the pagan agricultural holidays
that preceded them, I wonder if the Worldwide Church of God, and all
Christians would be intrigued and challenged to realize just exactly
which "Son" was being born on Christmas and why?
And keeping the Passover doesn't get you off the hook either.
Passover is the same motif of darkness/slavery and death being overcome
by freedom and light as the Sun breaks free of it all and victory goes
to the Most High. The Lamb is slain because the Age of Aries began with
Abraham finding the Lamb in the bush to fill in for his son Isaac, and
ends with the Lamb of God dying to usher in the Church age of Pices, the
What is the symbol of Mithraism found in small temples all over Europe?
Mithras slaying the bull 4000-2000 BC as Taurus which used to be the
Easter Constellation is replaced by Aries the Lamb 2000-0 BC, nicely
coinciding with the beginning of the Old Testament Lamb motif. It's the
magic of the progress of the Equinoxes and the biggest secret the
priests had to keep from the people and the real reason the OT is full
of commands NOT to look at the heavens or let it tell you stories.
That's the job of the Priests! Priestly "knowledge" was often science
that had been figured out and kept tight to the chests of the ruling
Plainly put, the story of Jesus' one year ministry as described in
Mark, Matthew and Luke, is an astrological allegory of the journey the
literal SUN takes through the twelve signs of the Zodiac in one year.
God is not called a "consuming fire," for nothing nor does Malachi note
in vain that the "sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in his
wings," (i.e. rays)
The journey of the SON/SUN starts at the birth of the SUN and SON
in December, brought forth by a virgin of all things, and ends just
before Christmas on December 22-24,
the time the SUN appears to be "in the grave" prior to being born again
on the 25th by moving ever so slightly north again and heading towards
spring. Jesus also spent his three days in the grave as we recall.
First of all why would I say that the Virgin brings forth the SUN
and the Virgin bringing forth the literal SON of God later in print was
not the original story? Because the older phenomenon is the sky story
noticed long before it was made literal for the masses.
On Christmas day, in particular 2000 years ago when during Jesus
time, the Sign of Aries the Lamb was coming to an end,, due to the
progression of the equinoxes and signified by the crucifixion of the
Lamb in the Spring, the sky on Christmas morning showed an interesting
sight. Just before sunrise, the SUN sits on the horizon about to be
"born." At the zenith, the high point
in the sky, at that moment, is the zodiacal constellation of Virgo, the
Virgin who is MOST High, MOST Blessed, at that moment the SUN is born.
Her open legs pointing to the sunrise to give birth.
Truly, and anciently, "and the virgin shall bring for the SUN."
The prophecy says that "they shall call his (THE SON) name, Immanuel,
which means "God with us." (Actually it means "God IS with us).
But the literal SON Jesus was never called Immanuel. However, the
real SUN, as SUN of GOD is always Immanuel, always with us. The Bible
even says of "God" that His power is from the rising of the sun until
the going down there of." No one thinks this through. God's power is
only good during the day is what this is saying. God's power ends at
sundown according to this scripture. Evidently this SUN GOD has not power after sunset, which of course is the real SUN and not the literalized GOD or SON of GOD.
Malachi tells us that the Messiah, but calling him the SUN, "shall
arise with healing in his wings." The wings of the sun are the rays
that appear to jet out due to the way humans see the sun when they try
to look at it. One of the great symbols of Egypt
is the sun disc with great bird wings coming out left and right. It's
an old symbol of how the sun looks to humans. The crown of thorns on
Jesus at his death are actually sun ray symbols much like the crown on
the Statue of Liberty.
Let's move on a bit past the birth of the SUN/Son on Christmas
morning. The Gospels say that Jesus was "about 30 years old" when he
began his ministry. The SUN/SON was born in December in the sign of
Capricorn back then which is the Goat, and may account for some of the
Nativity scene animals that were later made literally true in the story.
Each House of the Zodiac takes up approximately 30 degrees of the sky
(30x12=360). So the SUN also is about 30 when it enters the next sign of
the Zodiac in January, which just happens to be the same PERSON Jesus
the SON visited when he began his ministry! This would be Aquarius, the
Waterman for the SUN but John the Baptizer for Jesus the SON. Same
story. One in the sky, one made literal on earth. Same Story! Both SUN
and SON are baptized by the Waterman during this month and both
increase, that is keep moving towards Spring for the SUN or into his
ministry for the SON. Aquarius and John, the Watermen on the other hand,
must decrease and while one sets, the other is decapitated on the
horizon. It is no coincidence that when Aquarius appears to rise again
six months later at dawn instead of sink at sunset, the head comes up
first opposite Leo the Lion, sign of Herod who had him murdered
literally. Aquarius, in the morning sunrise looks beheaded by Leo who is
going down. Could this be why later in Jesus ministry Herod thinks that
John the Baptist is coming back from the dead or had risen, because
Aquarius is rising again after going down six months earlier? Is this a
heavenly astro-theological tale made literally true?
Also, at sunrise and prior to Christmas day, the three stars in the
belt of Orion the Hunter rose vertically and followed the sun across
the sky all day, only to loose it in sunset. Every winter morning this
scene would progress with the three "Magi" rising higher and earlier
each day chasing the SUN/SON. When the story was literalized, it lost
it's common sense. In the literal story we find the Magi saying, "We
have seen his star in the east ...." They then proceed to follow it West
with it ending up turning south and hovering right over the place where
Jesus was. It would be a dumb thing to see a star looking east, watch
it go over head in time and then turn west to follow it to Jerusalem.
You'd play this game ever night for awhile. First head east, then look
up, then turn and head west. I doubt this was the plan of the Magi who
could not have been that stupid. However, when not taken literally we
have the three stars, neatly aligned in Orion,s Belt rising like hikers
in the east and heading west following the SUN or SON that has to be in
the West to find. Great astro-theology but a bit funky when made
literally true. It might explain why Herod could not see the same Star
and had to ask for the Magi to find Jesus for him. It was taking place
in the sky, not the palace. A good Gnostic would say "of course, this is
where the story comes from."
Well shortly after Aquarius and John slip off the scene and Jesus
goes on his way, he goes immediately into the wilderness to be tempted
not to be all he can be by Satan. This would be the SUN, rising from
Winter and heading to Spring and then being the Most High at the Summer
Solstice, but still weak as it is early in the game. Jesus might still
be too young, too weak to continue, so Satan, i.e. Darkness tempts him
to be not be Jesus the SON or SUN. The darkness of Winter does not want
to go and wants to prevent the SUN/SON from en-lightening the world, or
as we might say, Satan does not wish Jesus the SON to take away the sins
(darkness) of the world. Darkness in the human psyche is the world of
evil and fear...the world of Satan. Jesus as the SON, just like the SUN
might just overcome the darkness of winter and Satan if he can't be dissuaded at this weak time of his cycle.
But alas, you can't stop the seasons, so Jesus and the SUN go to
Spring and Easter, which is the time when the SUN has the same strength
as the dark, when day and night are Equi-nox or Equal Nights. It's
Easter because the SUN rises due east and gives SON worshipers a
direction in which to pray on Easter morning. Satan is well on the way
to being defeated with the SUN/SON being crucified literally in Aries
the Lamb, (April-Easter) which Jesus was also called and the SUN in
Aries the Lamb as sign of the Zodiac. For the SUN the crucifixion takes
place where the Celestial Equator crosses the Ecliptic and the Sun sits
right on the intersection of it at Easter, and for Jesus it happens,
same time in Jerusalem, literally.
Interestingly enough, the Egyptian Obelisk centered in the courtyard of the Vatican and viewed from above is simply a huge sun-dial. Markings on the pavement seen as "decorations" in the stone point
out ever Solstice, Equinox and astro-theological event in the sky that
is the origin of the literalised Jesus story. The Vatican knows this.
The laity generally do not. On "Easter" morning, the sun rises exactly
90 East and exactly lines up with the Vatican and the Balconey the Pope
is used to speaking from to bring his message on the risen Sun...errrr
Son. Every symbol he wears and ever utensil he raises to the sky is a
It is not coincidence that the Age of Aries the Lamb, which ended
with the SUN moving into PICES due to the progression of the equinox
every 2190 years or so, around the time of Jesus coincides with the
death of the Lamb of God, the Son, Jesus. It is a symbol. "Behold, I am
with you, even unto the end of the age," said Jesus. This was not the
end of the world as some think, but the Lamb Jesus would be with them
until the end of the astrological age of Aries and then Pices the Fish
would begin. It is also no coincidence that the symbol for the SON/SUN's
Church is the fish, nor that in the age of Pices Christians were to be
"fishers of men." The fishing motif in the Gospels is all about the age
of Aries ending around the time of Jesus and the Age of Pices, the
Fishes, beginning. It is no coincidence that right after Jesus overcame
Satan, he went to Galilee, which means "circuit" as in circuit of the
SON, or SUN depending on which location you are seeing the story in, he
meets TWO FISHERMEN, Peter and Andrew and makes them Disciples. Jesus
making his circuit all around Galilee, which means "circuit," with his
12 disciples surround him, is no different than the SUN making it's
circuit (Galilee) surrounded by it's 12 zodiacal disciples. The Sign of
Pices is that of two fish. It is not coincidence that in the feeding of
the multitudes, there were TWO Fish and five loaves symbolizing the five
known planets of the time, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn.
Just for fun. In the Old Testament, the Cherubim with the face of a
man (Aquarius-Winter) the face of a Bull (Taurus-Spring) , the face of a
lion (Leo-Summer) and the face of an Eagle (Aguila) is merely another
astrotheological beast concocted from the zodiacal signs of the four
seasons. If each of the four had six wings..well that makes 24 and I
expect you know what that symbolizes. The 24 Elders around the Throne
of the Sun/Son in Revelation originate as well in the 24 hours of the
Well there is much more. When
Jesus as SON stood on the mount of transfiguration in the summer of his
one year ministry, his face shone like the SUN at noon. This is because
this earthly event is the literal fact in the cosmos that in June, the
summer Solstice finds the SUN at its highest, being the MOST HIGH for
the year and brilliant light. Jesus, standing on that "high mountain" in
summer, face shining like the sun was doing what the SUN was doing as
well as MOST HIGH right over his head. This is not coincidence either.
From June, it is all down hill for the SUN and for Jesus the SON. Cancer
the crab, which moves backwards and is for July and August symbolizes
that the SON and SUN were going backwards now to their fate. Jesus is
betrayed in the Fall by Judas, that scorpion, just as the SUN is stung
and betrayed by Scorpio in its dive to oblivion in December. The Archer
then takes over as Sagittarius, just as the mob does and both SUN and
SON are pierced. They die in late December appearing to be gone and as
the SUN lies for three days in the southern hemisphere, considered the
grave and appears to neither go further south, nor come back north, so
Jesus lies three days as the SON of GOD in the grave. This is December 22-24, the Winter Solstice, But it's all good. One December 25th the SUN and SON are born and brought forth by the Virgin Mary or the Virgin Virgo overhead and the cycle starts again.
Pretty cool huh? Ever hear that in Church? You won't. Actually, it
is still a bit disconcerting to me. What a cover-up! But realize, the
SUN that rises and sets everyday around the planet, while holding little
attention of modern busy men and women today, was THE source of all
religion on the planet. Because the greatest fear men have and have had
in history is fear of the dark. Dark was evil and so became "The Evil"
or "De-evil or Devil. Just as the SUN of GOD overcomes the darkness as
it makes it's one year rise and fall from birth to death, so Jesus as
the literalized SON of GOd, overcomes the Devil and delivers us from
darkness too. The story that is literally true happens in the cosmos,
over your head every minute of every day, month and year. The more
suspect one, made literally true, is what you hear in Sunday
school....Hey! SUN DAY School!!!!!!!
