God’s Story Board The Night Sky

1 b c  north stars - Copy - Copy

Job 38:33 Do you know the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

In contemporary English, “can you find the dominate star or the north star of each age?”

In this post-modern world, Christian Believers are called “Bible Thumpers!” People now would rather look to the Heavens and the Stars for Answers. My LORD JESUS has not been caught unprepared. I am sure that you are well aware of Romans 10:17, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”. However, the next verse (18) is where Paul shows Christian Believers, how to reach those people who would rather look to the heavens and the stars for Answers: by causing Christian Believers to go back to the Psalms: so we can give the Lost a powerful witness that points back to the Bible.

 

Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their voice went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Paul is referencing, Psalms 19:1-4 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handy work 2 Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their voice is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world….

I am not so naive to think that after a life time of people telling the Church that, “the meanings behind the constellations of the night sky are all of pagan origins”: that the modern church will automatically embrace the constellations as God’s Story Board. Even in Paul’s time the unbelievers were corrupting the meanings behind the stars of the heavens. However, God gave us an interface between the Bible and the stars. Psalms 147:4 ‘He (God) tells the number of the stars; he calls them all by names”. Isaiah 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that brings out their host by number: he calls them all by names. Surprising to Christians, many of the God given ancient star names have been preserved and are still used by modern astronomers. There is a star picture that has always been in the Northern sky, 24 hours a day not a monthly zodiacal constellation: this picture with its ancient star names creates a true depiction of the Scripture Genesis 3:15. And I(GOD) will put enmity between thee (Subtle Serpent) and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy (Serpent) head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

The need to reach the Lost is why I have taken a section of my book, Locked Gates, The Riddle Lords Secrets and turned it into a free Star Talk, God’s Story Board, The Night Sky. In this way I hope to give the Church a powerful witnessing tool that few are aware of that refers back to the Bible. This free Star Talk/ Witnessing Class will be given at one of the darkest areas in the U.S.A. just after sunset about 9 pm on Memorial Day Sunday, May 24, 2015 on Highway 6, about 26 miles East of Tonopah, Nevada. Rest rooms and free over night camping available on site: hope to see you and your skeptical friends there, but, bring your Bible and lawn chairs.

The Heavens Praise God’s Wonders and Christian are Afraid to Proclaim Them

Psalm_89:5And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.” Even so, most Christian experts are afraid to look at the constellations of the night sky. Afraid that someone will think: “they believe in the Zodiac.” Isaiah_13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their אור enlightenment. However, the early Church called the stars of the heavens “The Way” and did not use the stars for personal predictions. Those constellations acted as an interface or Story Board to pass down the believers stories using the constellations as their text and the star names to unfold stories hidden in the stars of the night sky.However, Job describes two of  these constellations in 26:13, as a fight between God and evil in this way: 1

HE garnishes the heavens and with His hand slew the fleeing Serpent”

Genesis  3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed;

it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

This star picture is connected to “an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt” The Manuscript of Makrizi states that. “The first (the Great) Pyramid was especially dedicated to the history and astronomy;2 Tohfat Aalabib states that the Great Pyramid contains “Plans of the stars and historical and prophetical records.3

 

Isaiah 19:19 -20a In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt,

and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.

And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt

 

To understand this interface between the stars and the Great Pyramid we must go back to the year 2141 before the Christian Era, Sesonchosis (the Season of Chaos) September 21st at which time the Patriarch Joseph was living in Egypt and go through the entrance of the Great Pyramid and down the long passage way as the darkness engulfs us, and as we move toward a pool of water that is at the bottom. The water has flooded almost to the opening to the well shaft4; and as we continue down a small light appears out of the darkness then turning a round we see that same light behind us.

 

31jpg star map2

We are somewhere between the star Thuman the North Star of 2141 BC, that is above us and it’s reflection on the water below us, a bottomless pit halfway between a star and that same star: a type of hell or a bottomless pit where up could be down and down could be up, which is a fearful of a place as drowning in a dark sea. A place where a wrong step or a passing cloud will plunge you into total darkness without a star to guide you, “We know that we can escape. Can’t we?”

 

As we quickly walk back up toward the entrance, a star picture appears, that of the constellation Draco (The snake of the North Star Thuman of 2141 years before the Christian era,)5 it was a time Egyptian Archeologist call “Sesonchosis ( the Season of Chaos)” The Snake star picture is trying to encircle other star pictures of the sky, especially Ursa Minor and our current North Star Polaris then known as Yean. There is one Star picture that Draco cannot encircle, and that is the picture of The Mighty One, who is kneeling down with one foot on Draco’s head as the snake tries to strike his foot. The Mighty One has a club in his hand beating the Snake with it and the shape of that legendary olive branch club is a Cross.6

Moreover, Moses wrote of this star picture as a prophecy 7 .

“I will put Enmity (Snake) between you and the woman, and between your posterity and her Posterity:

and her Posterity shall tread your head under his foot, and you shall strike in his heel”

That star picture is still in the sky today. Who is this Mighty One? That occupies a large portion of the heavens? Who is seen bending on one knee, with his right heel lifted up as if it had been wounded, while his left foot is set directly over the head of The Great Dragon? A mystical Hero who in his right hand he wields a great olive branch club or cross,  even in the Denderah (the ancient Stone Star Chart of Egypt) which was recovered during Napoleon’s expedition to Egypt in 1798-1802 at which time the French also found the Rosetta Stone, the block of stone that acts as an interface to writings of the past.

 

beu zodac

There on the Denderah Star Chart, we have a human figure, in the same position in the night sky as our old friend Hercules again with a club. His name is Bau, which means “Who is to come”, and is evidently intended for Him who is to come to crush The Serpent’s head, and “destroy the works of the devil.”8 In Arabic Hercules or Bau of the northern night sky is called Al Giscale, The Strong One. There are 113 stars in this constellation. The brightest star, in his head, is named Ras al Gethi, and means the head of him who bruises. The next, in the right armpit, is named Kornephorus, and means The Branch, (Nazarene in Hebrew) plus, kneeling. The star in the right elbow is called Marsic, The wounding. The star in the upper part of the left arm is named Ma’asyn, the sin-offering or the protector in Hebrew9. While in the lower part of the right arm is Caiam, or Guiam, punishing; and in Arabic, treading under foot.10 Many of these star names have Arabic or Hebrew origins dating to hundreds of years before the Birth of MY LORD JESUS CHRIST and the definitions are not redefined terms to fit a Christian theology. Psalm_89:5 “And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.” However, will you use this Wonder God placed in the heavens and proclaim His faithfulness? Or dismiss one of the greatest witnessing tool given to the Church?

How Egyptians Built the Great Pyramids

Herupakhered, was one of the primary Low Tech Tools project that quickly turned Egypt from a humble desert kingdom into a world agricultural power. Which then became known by its Semitic name, Metzrayim, River Controlling Wall .Upon the destruction of that dam and the draining of the sea of Nun, that nation became known by the Coptic Greek name, Egypt. Aiguptis, which is derived from aigialos, a sea , and ptoeo to cause to flee away.


The Gates of Troy, From Locked Gates,The Riddle Lords Secret by Howard West

Three thousand years ago on the sunny shore of the Eastern Mediterranean, along the Aegean Sea, lived a priestess named Cassandra, a young “Paul Revere” who was telling the people of Troy that:

The Greeks are coming and the Wooden Horse they left is a trick to allow them to breach our impenetrable walls.”

The Greek Army was using a tactic against the Trojan people that was a hallmark of Middle Eastern thought, The Riddle Concept: the misleading of ones Enemies and the Common Folk. Sadly, even though Cassandra had been given a great Gift, the uncanny ability to unravel riddles, with that Gift came a Cruel Curse. The curse that no one ever believed her, because of that disbelief, the citizens of Troy were deceived into believing a lie, a lie that would cost them their City. Consequently, as the Orators of Troy (also known as Gatekeepers) brought through the gates of Troy the large Wooden Horse, our Visionary, poor little Cassandra was being ridiculed to shame, and told:

Shut up and go home Cassandra or something ‘Bad’ might happen to you” 1

Today if our Gatekeepers of knowledge saw someone like Cassandra who was so far out of touch with those skeptics ’ concept of Truth: The diagnosis would be, “She is just part of a Lunatic Fringe .” Our modern Gatekeepers of knowledge, therefore, would feel justified in dismissing our poor little Cassandra and her “Statements of Truth” in a similar situation.

Deception through camouflage as in the Wooden Horse that the Greeks used was the “Common Trick” in Eastern Mediterranean Mythology. Within their story form riddles were hidden answers to a great number of the most puzzling aspects of their History. Answers locked away, woven into their religions, myths, and legends. The Semitic people described this concept of dissimulation, as a “Khood2 which implied a knot or a snarl of silk thread; or the word “chiydah”:3 a riddle. The complementary word was “mashah, 4 the unwinding of a silk worm cocoon, and mashal a story form riddle. However, to manufacture a silk piece of cloth you must first have thread. Therefore, you must find the end of the silk worm’s last strand that he had spun around himself. Then carefully unravel that last strand as the cocoon sits floating in water. Then hundreds of strands per-inch were used in the manufacture of silk cloth. A process that is far more time consuming than the production of felt cloth; where you smash short unsorted fibers together to produce, a cloth for the Common Folk. The genesis of this process of silk production dates back thousands of years ago to Egypt. Though the Art was lost in antiquity, nevertheless, traces of that production can be seen in the language of the Semitic people. One of the most famous of the Hebrew leaders was a man named, Moses5 and that name is derived from that same Hebrew root word as “mashah”  6 and he too was drawn up from the water of the Nile in a Cocoon of Bulrushes. The title Messiah, , LORD of the Riddle, The Spinner of mashals, (Zader Yiger Mantchih:“The Silken Man”7,) also comes from that same Semitic root word “Mash”, however, Messiah ends with the “Sacred Name” Jah or Iah8, LORD: not “ich”, Union.)

The synonym for this Semitic concept of the mashal in the ancient Greek secular world was derived from its root words of para,9 “be close to or run alongside” and bolo10 “to be thrown off or redirected.” There are many words that have those root words, and most of which still hold true to the basic meaning of the Greek root words such as: parallel, paralegal, paraboloid, and parabolic. Even so, for some strange reason the Religious Crowd change the meaning of parable to mean, “An illustration given to make a concept clear for the Common folk.” Though, the “Book” that they say confirms this concept says just the opposite:

Isaiah 13:13

From Qumran Cave One11

The reason that I speak to them in Parables12 (mashal Story riddles) is that seeing they will not perceive; and hearing they will not understand.

Solomon said: in Proverbs 1:5-613

The Wise will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding Shall attain unto wise counsel; so he can understand (mashal)14 story riddles and their interpretation of the words of the wise, And their (chiydah15) Dark Sayings

The Book of Secrets16

From Qumran Cave Four

4Q300 F1 Col 2

Consider, those teachers of error: that say, ‘The story riddles (mashal) declares themselves that the (mashal) riddles is plain to see even before the Wise speaks…“

Proud in your foolishness teachers of error, for the vision is sealed up from you, and you have not properly understood the eternal mysteries and you have not become wise in understanding but foolish for you have not properly understood the origin of Wisdom; but if you should unseal the vision. The story riddles (mashal) is foolishness in all your wisdom.”

4Q301 F117

I shall speak out freely, and I shall express my various sayings among you for those who would understand story riddles (mashal) the dark hidden secrets (chiydah18) and that they propose and those who would penetrate the origins of knowledge, along with those who hold fast to the wonderful mysteries, hidden from those who walk in simplicity as well as those who are devious in every activity of the deeds of humanity. Hidden from those with stiff necks, and hard heads, and all the mass of the Common Folk.

The Egyptian Het Benben19

They see Ra (The light of sun) with their eyes and enter in his secret images. I protect my hidden things which are in Het Benben (house of the Renaissance)

The Story Riddle were used as a system to keep the knowledge of the Riddle Lords secrets from their Enemies and the Common Folk: though retrievable by the diligent. This system has worked well, almost too well. The answers to those Eastern Mediterranean cultures most baffling secrets, have been passed on from one generation to the next generation camouflaged within the essence of these riddles. Answers hidden, unchanged, and locked in riddles inside myths and legends of sex, violence, gods and goddesses and the super natural. This premise of the unwinding of threads to guide us through the maze of ignorance to the light of wisdom is a concept that was taught in the Greek story of the hero of the virgins of Athens. Theseus went to the labyrinth of Minotaur20 to take those young people’s place in darkness, and to do battle with that half-man-beast. Theseus knew he had no hope of escaping the Labyrinth, even if he defeated Minotaur. Luckily, Theseus had an admirer, the King’s daughter Ariadne; this young woman gave Theseus the key to unlock the riddle of the Labyrinth a simple ball of thread, Thread that was able to lead Theseus out of the maze into the light of day.

So why is this Wisdom locked away in these ancient story riddles so important that we must unwind these silk threads or riddles? Because they contain answers hidden in “Dark Sayings” (chiydah) that even the most educated of the 21th century of the Christian era have never been aware of; Dark Sayings that unlocks the most puzzling aspects of the Eastern Mediterranean culture. Alchemy is a case in point.

The Alchemists, who had learned the trick of turning Base Metals silver, loved this Game of Camouflage. The key to Alchemists silver and Gold was the element mercury also known as quicksilver. This liquid metal was known in Time’s Past as an “Anointing Oil.” The eternal question has been, “How do you turn a clean Base Metal coin: silver and then golden?” This is a well-known process that has been used in refining gold for thousands of years; yet, the truth of the Magic of Alchemy has eluded the Common Folk. All that is needed is a drop of quicksilver that was rubbed into the coin in so doing the mercury quickly spreads, turning the coin silver. The mercury would then spread out on the coin like oil on water. The coin then has a thin silver mirror finish. If you scratch the coin the mercury instantly fills the scratch, so the coin seems to be solid silver, therefore, a copper penny would seem to be a silver dime. Here in the “States” our Government has learned the Alchemist trick: our coins have a copper core and a bright silvery, finish, though not with mercury. Sadly the Common Folk here in the States value those coins as if they were solid silver. Our government has learned the value of the Alchemist Silver coin and the Common Folk have not.

To turn the Alchemist silver coin to a golden one is almost as simple, though the process does require a tiny amount of microscopic gold. The Alchemist silver coin is suspended in water and a mixture with a yellow or red sulfur to hide the tiny flecks of gold. The coin in the slurry is then agitated. This allows the stickiest of the oily quicksilver to capture the microscopic flakes of gold, which turns the coin golden with a coating, a veneer so thin that the tiny amount of gold looks solid. The Alchemist’s silver and gold are the keys to understanding many of the mysteries of the Eastern Mediterranean cultures of the past.

The “Gatekeepers of knowledge” of today understands these Dark Sayings such as Alchemy as clearly as the people of Troy understood “The Secret” contained in that Large Wooden Horse that their Gate Keepers brought through the gates into their city. A people that could describe the Horse’s outside in great detail and could give you a long list of Common people and of the Intellectual leaders of Troy that would describe the Wooden Horse in exactly the same way, EXCEPT.
