Apollo/Apollon

Apollo-
Typhon — “Osiris was the son of Helios (Phra) the ‘divine offspring congenerate with the dawn’ and at the same time an incarnation of Kneph or Agathodaemon, the Good Spirit, including all his possible manifestations, either physical or moral. He represented in a familiar form the beneficent aspect of all higher emanations and in him was developed the conception of a Being purely good, so that it became necessary to set up another power as his adversary, called Seth, Baby, or Typhon to account for the injurious influences of Nature.” [Pike, op. cit., p. 588, Teachings of the 28th Degree, Knight of the Sun, or Prince Adept].
We have many in this world who revere the ancient ‘gods’ of antiquity. Take for instance the Freemasons; they call their god the “Great Architech of the Universe” but it boils down to Osiris, or otherwise known as Apollo. Pike was a well-known occulitist and Freemason!
The founder of the House of Theosophy, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, whose books were all written by her demonic Guiding Spirits in a form we call Automatic Writing, ties Thoth together for us nicely. “… Hermes, the god of wisdom, called also Thoth, Tat, Set, Set, and Sat-an; and that he was, furthermore, when viewed under his bad aspect, Typhon, the Egyptian Satan , who was also Set.” [Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled , Vol. I: Science, New York, Trow’s Printing and Bookbinding Company, 1877, p. 554, xxxiii. Colored Emphasis added]
I find it highly interesting that Blavatsky, like Anton LaVey in the Satanic Bible, had no trouble tying the Infernal Name, Thoth, with Satan, and especially the Egyptian Satan ! Remember Pike’s words, quoted in the very beginning, that “Masonry is identical to the ancient Mysteries”! This statement means that the Freemasons believe the same as all the Ancient Mysteries and worship the same god, Satan, albeit under different names.
Since Blavatsky mentioned another of the Infernal Names, Typhon, and has identified him as the Egyptian Satan, let us review Albert Pike once again, as we discover that Freemasonry reveres Typhon as well. (1)

Another example would be the Roman Catholic Church. No, I’m not kidding. They worship another god than the One we do! It’s no secret that their halls and subterranean paths are cluttered with idols and statues of false gods, and dead people. I believe their pantheon of gods are below the surface just the ancient Greek demi-gods.

uncategorized-amusing-greek-architecture-in-modern-day

Architecture is built with these demi-gods in mind. Our world is full of staples which coincide with this assessment. The temples were built in honor of them, and many of the features which are included in our very own churches still hold true to this statement. Our very American government has utilized forms these types of structures in our own cities.

The home of the gods was thought to be Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece. The most important deities were: Zeus, the supreme god and ruler of the sky; Hera, his wife and goddess of marriage; Athena, goddess of wisdom; Poseidon, god of the sea; Demeter, goddess of the earth; Apollo, god of the sun, law, reason, music and poetry; Artemis, goddess of the moon, the hunt and the wilderness; Aphrodite, goddess of love; Ares, God of war; Hermes, god of commerce and medicine, Hephaestus, god of fire and metalwork, and Dionysus, god of wine and fruit-bearing plants.

We season our sports from the Olympian demigods. Our Olympics are applied in just the right perfected techniques which reveal this to be true.
Our search in the universe even gives us clues as to who our elite and elect hold dear to their hearts. Apollo-Orion-Aquarius-Artemis-Calypso-Juno-Themis, are a few names to throw out there.

I pointed out in the article, “Pantheon Gods of Lucifer’s Church” that the Syrians are a bloodline which we need to acknowledge. Their leaders worship the Greek demigods of old and it is revealed in their crests, and country symbolism.
” Ashur”, “Assur”, “Assyria”, “The Assyrian” and “Assyrians”
In Jewish and Christian books and comments they many times talk about “Ashur”, “Assur”, “Assyria”, “The Assyrian” and “Assyrians”.
After the destruction of the Assyrians these terms were continuously used to express the evilness of an arbitrary Empire, country or a nation. It has nothing to do with the origin or the ethnicity, but rather to point out on the badness of an arbitrary nation. Another very important point is that after the destruction of the Assyrian Empire many people and nations didn’t know about the collapse of this strong Empire. Because of this reason some history writers considered the new inhabitants of the former Assur also as “Assyrians”.
Ashur is used in the sense of the power (satanic) angels behind the scenes, it means the ‘god’Ashur, who are constantly busy to destroy the work of God.
Assur, Assyria is used to express the manifestation of Ashur in flesh and blood. Assyria is an appellation for peoples and nations who had /have a lot of hatred towards the people of Israel. It forms also a geographical description of the former Assyrian Empire. Some writers call some Arabic countries “Assyria” (= spiritual Assur) to underline the spiritual (hate) link with the former Assyrians. The same power angels, who had ruled over Ashur, they now rule over some Arabic – and other nations to create hatred towards the people of Israel and indirectly towards the Lord God! That is exactly the reason that Holy Bible says about the hatred towards the people of Israel,, Come, they say, “let us destroy their nation, so that Israel will be forgotten for ever” (Psalms 83:4)
The Assyrian or the King of the North is very famous term which is often used by the Christian writers to describe the evilness of the empire of the antichrist. They sometimes call the antichrist “the Assyrian” to express how terrible the period of the antichrist will be.
Assyrians are the inhabitants of the spiritual Assur, it can be a arbitrary country in the world. Adolf Hitler is sometimes described as the real “Assyrian” to underline the hatred he had towards the people of Israel. (2)

Assyria, Egypt and Babylon
Now I shall continue with the discussion of Isaiah 19:23-25 “When that time comes, there will be a highway between Egypt and Assyria. The people of those two countries will travel to and fro between them, and the two nations will worship together. When that time comes, Israel will rank with Egypt and Assyria, and these three nations will be a blessing to all the world. The Lord Almighty will bless them and say, “I will bless you, Egypt My people; you Assyria, whom I created; and you Israel, My chosen people”. and Psalms 87:4 “I will include Egypt and Babylonia when I list the nations that obey Me; I will number among the inhabitants of Jerusalem the people of Philistia, Tyre, and Ethiopia”
Note here that the Lord God speaks of Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, Tyre, Philistia and Sudan. However, the Lord does not SPEAK of: Assyrains, Egyptians, Babylonians, Tyrians, Philistines and Sudanians.
Assur (or Assyria), Egypt and Babylonia: These three countries have persecuted the people of Israel. All of them were the enemies of the Lord God. In Exodus 2:23 we read about the behaviour of Egypt,, … but the Israelites were still groaning under their slavery and cried out for help….. The answer of the Lord is then,, I have seen how cruel my people are being treated in Egypt; I have heard them cry out to be rescued from their slave-drivers (Exodus 3:7). And in Isaiah 52:3 we read,, The Sovereign Lord says to His people, “When you became slaves, no money was paid for you; in the same way nothing will be paid to set you free. When you went to live in Egypt as foreigners, you did so of your own free will; Assyria, however took you away by force and paid nothing for you. And now in Babylonia the same thing has happened….”
Please pay attention again to the three enemies of Israel, namely”: Assyria, Egypt and Babylonia!”.
Philistia: The country of the former Philistians who were constant in war with the people of Israel, the enemies of Israel. Please don’t confuse this with the present-day Arabs under the leadership of Arafat calling themselves “Palestinians” (Jeremiah 47:1-7)
Tyre: This was the trade centre of Phoenicia. This city became later a city of idols and godlessness! (2)

Apollo and the Satyrs (detail), by Gustave Moreau
(1826-1898), French Symbolist painter

Jesus comes from the Greek name “Iesous/IHSOUS” and Latin “Iesus.” “Iesous” is adapted from the name of the Greek goddess of healing “Iesos/Iaso,” the daughter of Apollo, the Sun-deity. This goddess was linked to the Egyptian “Isis” who had a son named “Isu.” During the era of Roman Emperors, there were numerous worshippers of “Isis.” Many converted to Constantine’s religion that mixed paganism with the Messianic faith that eventually became the Roman Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church continues to use the sunburst emblem known as the “Eucharist” which to this day contains the Greek letters “IHS” for “IHSOUS.” Further research reveals that the name “Jesus” is also linked to the Greek Sun-god “Zeus” who was the Greek interpretation of the Egyptian Sun-god “Amen-Rah.”

Now, I know for a fact the name of Jesus Christ is a THREAT to the dark side of the supernatural so I don’t know quite what to make of this but it is interesting!

THEY HAD APOLLYON AS THEIR KING REV 9-11

Apollo-Destroyer!
Apollyon The Destroyer PARTS-3
[link] [link] [link]

what-authority-does-satan-over-sinners-and-saints-16-638

APOLLYON, or, as it is literally in the margin of the AV of Revelation 9:11, “a destoyer,” is the rendering of the Hebrew word Abaddon, “the angel of the bottomless pit.”

[And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.–Rev 9:11]

The Hebrew term is really abstract, and signifies “destruction,” in which sense it occurs in Job 26:6; 28:22; Proverbs 15:11; and other passages.
[Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.–Job 26:6

Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.–Job 28:22

Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?–Prov 15:11]

The angel Apollyon is further described as the king of the locusts which rose from the smoke of the bottomless pit at the sounding of the fifth trumpet. From the occurrence of the word in Psalm 88:11, the Rabbins have made Abaddon the nethermost of the two regions into which they divided the under world.

[Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?–Psalm 88:11

Hell has seven divisions, one beneath the other. They are called Sheol, Abaddon, Beer Shahat, Tit ha-Yawen, Sha’are Mawet, Sha’are Zalmawet, and Gehenna.– The Legends of the Jews, Louis Ginzberg]

But that in Revelation 9:11 Abaddon is the angel, and not the abyss, is perfectly evident in the Greek. There is no authority for connecting it with the destroyer alluded to in 1 Corinthians 10:10; and the explanation, quoted by Bengel, that the name is given in Hebrew and Greek, to show that the locusts would be destructive alike to Jew and Gentile, is far-fetched and unnecessary.

[Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.–1 Corinthians 10:10]

The etymology of Asmodeus, the king of the demons in Jewish mythology, seems to point to a connection with Apollyon, in his character as “the destroyer,” or the destroying angel.
(Dr. William Smith’s Dictionary of the Bible, 1872)

ROMES ICON AS COMPARED TO THE BIBLICAL CHRIST

APOLLYON. The Greek name, meaning “Destroyer,” given in Revelation 9:11 for “the angel of the bottomless pit” (in Hebrew called Abaddon), also identified as the king of the demonic “locusts” described in Revelation 9:3-10…In one manuscript, instead of Apollyon the text reads “Apollo,” the Greek god of death and pestilence as well as of the sun, music, poetry, crops and herds, and medicine. Apollyon is no doubt the correct reading. But the name Apollo (Gk Apollon) was often linked in ancient Greek writings with the verb apollymi or apollyo, “destroy.” From this time of Grotius, “Apollyon” has often been taken here to be a play on the name Apollo. The locust was an emblem of this god, who poisoned his victims, and the name “Apollyon” may be used allusively in Revelation to attack the pagan god and so indirectly the Roman emperor Domitian, who liked to be regarded as Apollo incarnate.

(Anchor Bible Dictionary)
APOLLO, one of the most important and many-sided of the ancient Greek divinities. Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto and the twin brother of Artemis [Diana]; he was born on Delos, where Leto had fled, persecuted by the jealousy of Hera…
Apollo’s origins (perhaps Oriental) are quite uncertain; his name yields no convincing Greek etymology, although he became the most thoroughly Greek of all gods…A remarkable feature of his cult was his characteristic, though not only, way of giving oracles, especially at Delphi, to possess the priestess and speak through her mouth in a way reminiscent of Siberian shamanism.
His oracles, especially the Delphic, were consulted on all manner of subjects, and good advice was often given, especially on such matters as colonization, by the obviously well-informed clergy, who “edited” the utterances of the priestess…
Someone in the fifth century BC started a wholly ungrounded theory that Apollo was identical with the sun. This became popular in later times and lingers in poetical expressions such as “Phoebus ‘gins arise,” meaning that the sun rises; Phoebus (“bright, pure”) is one of Apollo’s titles. It also led to his identification with real sun gods.
There were numerous representations of the god in Greek art, from the archaic statues of the sixth century BC to those of the later period in which he appears as the ideal of youthful manliness and beauty. His worship was taken over by the Romans, who dedicated a temple to him in 430 BC and instituted gamees in his honour (the ludi Apollinares) in 212 BC. He became one of the chief Roman gods in the age of Augustus, who erected a temple to him on the Palatine…

THE SOLSTICE CHRIST

____________________

APOLLO (Gr. Apollon), a Greek god, the son of Zeus, the father of the gods, and Leto, daughter of the Titan Coeus, and the twin brother of Artemis, goddess of the moon. The twins were born on the island of Delos, whither their mother had fled to escape the jealous anger of Zeus’ wife, Hera. Apollos is one of the most versatile of the Olympian gods. As the god of youth, manly beauty, music, and song, he represents the Greek mind at its best. He was the god of prophecy, with his oracle at Delphi, the protector of flocks and herds, the helper and averter of evil, and also the god of righteous punishment. To his oracles people turned in sickness, and he is represented as the father of Aesculapius, the god of healing. He delighted in the foundation of cities, and as the spiritual leader of colonists he was invoked as Delphinius; as Euryalus, he was god of the broad seas, and of the embarker and disembarker; as Agyleus he was god of the streets and roads; and as Phoebus he was god of the sun. Although the Greek poet Homer represents Apollo and Helios, the sun, as distinct divinities, Apollos’ identification as the sun-god is universal among later writers…The attributes of Apollo are the bow and quiver, the cithara and plectrum, the snake, raven, shepherd’s crook, tripod, and laurel. In art Apollo is represented more frequently than any other ancient deity…

APOLLO BELVEDERE, a famous marble statue in the part of the Vatican museum called Belvedere…Montorsoli, a pupil of Michelangelo, restored the hands but did so wrongly, for the right hand was not empty but held a laurel branch, and the left hand held a bow, as testified by the quiver on the back of the figure. The statue was thus intended to depict the two aspects of Apollo, the god who punishes wrong-doers and purifies repentant sinners…

The best known Belvedere is the court of that name in the Vatican Palace, and the gallery surrounding it, built in 1484-1492 by pope Innocent VIII. In this gallery are some of the finest masterpieces of Classical antiquity, including the famous statue of Apollo Belvedere, the Laocoon [a Trojan priest who warned his countrymen against the wooden horse left by the Greeks–according to Pliny the sculpture stood in the palace of Titus in Rome], and a torso of Hercules.

THE REAL ORIGIN OF ROME SOLAR-MASS TO APOLLYON AS A CHRIST MASS

____________________

The slime with which the earth was covered by the waters of the flood produced an excessive fertility, which called forth every variety of production, both bad and good. Among the rest, Python, an enormous serpent, crept forth, the terror of the people…The famous statue of Apollo called the Belvedere represents the god after this victory over the serpent Python.
Aesculapius, the son of Apollo, was endowed by his father with such skill in the healing art that he even restored the dead to life.
Orpheus was the son of Apollo and the Muse Calliope. He was presented by his father with a lyre and taught to play upon it, which he did to such perfection that nothing could withstand the charm of his music.

PHEOBUS APOLLO…the lord of the silver bow, the Archer-god, far-shooting… He is the God of Light, in whom is no darkness at all, and so he is the God of Truth. No false word ever falls from his lips.

O Phoebus, from your throne of truth,
From your dwelling-place at the heart of the world,
You speak to men.
By Zeus’s decree no lie comes there,
No shadow to darken the word of truth.
Zeus sealed by an everlasting right
Apollo’s honour, that all may trust
With unshaken faith when he speaks.

Delphi under towering Parnassus, where Apollo’s oracle was, plays an important part in mythology. Castalia was its sacred spring; Cephissus its river. It was held to be the center of the world, so many pilgrims came to it, from foreign countries as well as Greece. No other shrine rivaled it.
Apollo at Delphi was a purely beneficent power, a direct link between gods and men, guiding men to know the divine will, showing them how to make peace with the gods; the purifier, too, able to cleanse even those stained with the blood of their kindred.
(Mythology, Edith Hamilton)

world-on-fire-the-end

____________________
Terrors had always made excellent business for Apollo, and there were never worse terrors than the plagues and earthquakes in the Antonine and Severan age. At Didyma, Apollo’s cult was connected by its very origins to the bahishment of plague: in the 250s, Apollo still recalled how he had “shamed” the threads of the Fates and kept off the epidemic….we know about Apollo’s remedies in a fascinating selection of oracles…They carry no date, but the main four probabably belong in the great epidemic of the 160s when Roman troops were returning from the East and brought home a disease whose effects read horribly like smallpox…
Three cities have left us pieces of Clarian Apollo’s oracles on plague: Pergamum, Callipolis (near modern Gallipoli) and humble little Caesarea Trochetta, a small town in Lydia…The god pitched his style very high and lamented the disaster (crying “Woe! Woe! to each city)…None of these texts explained the plague; they only prescribed remedies… Only part of the god’s remedy survives, but it runs true to his old-fashioned manner. The “divine law,” he said, required his clients to draw pure water from seven fountains, which they had fumigated carefully. They must then sprinkle their houses with these “nymphs who have become kindly” and must set up an image of Apollo the archer, bow in hand, in the middle of their plain. There, presumably, he would “shoot away” the invading enemy, the plague itself.
Callipolis was ordered to set up a similar statue, “the warder-off of plague,” and was also told to offer blood from sacrificial animals to the “gods below the earth” and to burn all the animals’ meat with spices. The pyre of this holocaust was to be sprinkled with “shining wine and grey sea water”: the victims, a goat, and a sheep, must be black…
Of the three texts, the finest is Pergamum’s, which moves in stately hexameters and spends the first nine lines on flattery of the citizens’ ancestry, their closeness to the gods and their especial honour from Zeus himself. On Pergamum’s steep hill, said Apollo, the infant Zeus had been placed just after childbirth: his statement refuted a host of competing cities which claimed that they, not Pergamum, had received the newly born god. It was no wonder that the people and council of Pergamum decreed that the reply should be inscribed on pillars and displayed “on the agora and the temples.” It also offered advice. Apollo wished to please his son, Asclepius, who resided so conspicuously in the city…he told [them] to sing a hymn to a particular god while their fellow citizens feasted and sacrificed in support…

    In his book “Amusing Ourselves To Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business,” the late media critic Neil Postman compares two dystopian futures — one, imagined by George Orwell in his book 1984, in which the government maintains its control by keeping us under constant surveillance; the other, conceived by Aldous Huxley in Brave New World, in which citizens are kept happy enough to never put up a fight:

    Who was more prophetic, Orwell or Huxley?

    Orwell Huxley

    Both Neither

    http://billmoyers.com/content/orwell-vs-huxley-who-are-you-behind/

    “We were keeping our eye on 1984. When the year came and the prophecy didn’t, thoughtful Americans sang softly in praise of themselves. The roots of liberal democracy had held. Wherever else the terror had happened, we, at least, had not been visited by Orwellian nightmares.

    But we had forgotten that alongside Orwell’s dark vision, there was another – slightly older, slightly less well known, equally chilling: Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Contrary to common belief even among the educated, Huxley and Orwell did not prophesy the same thing. Orwell warns that we will be overcome by an externally imposed oppression. But in Huxley’s vision, no Big Brother is required to deprive people of their autonomy, maturity and history. As he saw it, people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.

    What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumble puppy. As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions”. In 1984, Huxley added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we hate will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we love will ruin us.”

    This excerpt has prompted many to ponder the same question that Bill Moyers asked Marty Kaplan on this week’s program: Who’s proving the most successful prophet? Huxley or Orwell? What do you think? Vote above, and leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

    “More thriller than primer, this is the best technology book I have ever read.” -Nicholas Negroponte, author of Being Digital
    In this provocative book, one of today’s most respected thinkers turns the conversation about technology on its head by viewing technology as a natural system, an extension of biological evolution. By mapping the behavior of life, we paradoxically get a glimpse at where technology is headed-or “what it wants.” Kevin Kelly offers a dozen trajectories in the coming decades for this near-living system. And as we align ourselves with technology’s agenda, we can capture its colossal potential. This visionary and optimistic book explores how technology gives our lives greater meaning and is a must-read for anyone curious about the future.
