Three Trees at the Skull Gate

The Three Crosses of Golgotha
By Kim Graae Munch, 2008

The three crosses on Golgotha is a significant scene in the New Testament. It signifies the main powers in the development of the Earth, as described in the The Tree of Life from the Kabbalah.

When only the cross with Christ is shown, we see only a small part of the mystery, as the crucifixion contains a trinity.

As Rudolf Steiner is one of the primary Christian esoteric teachers I have taken the following texts from Christ and the Human Soul: Continue reading

Adar Moloch

ADRAMMELECH
From Jewish Encyclopedia

—Biblical Data:

1. Mentioned in II Kings, xvii. 31, as a god of Sepharvaim, which until recently was supposed to be the Hebrew name for the Babylonian city Sippar. After the inhabitants of Sepharvaim had been deported to Samaria (II Kings, xvii. 24; Isa. xxxvi. 19) by Sargon, king of Assyria, they continued to worship their gods Adrammelech and Anammelech, accompanying their rites with the sacrifice of children by fire.

There was, however, no Assyrian or Babylonian god bearing the name Adrammelech, although, according to some scholars, the form of the word, if it be regarded as Assyrian, points to a supposed original “Adar-malik” (see 2). Continue reading

Zohar – 8. Adrammelech

Adrammelech

Smith’s Bible Dictionary
Adrammelech
(splendor of the king)

The name of an idol introduced into Samaria by the colonists from Sepharvaim. (2 Kings 17:31) He was worshipped with rites resembling those of Molech, children being burnt in his honor.

Adrammelech was probably the male power of the sun, and ANAMMELECH, who is mentioned with Adrammelech as a companion god, the female power of the sun.

Son of the Assyrian king Sennacherib, who, with his brother Sharezer, murdered their father in the temple of Nisroch at Nineveh, after the failure of the Assyrian attack on Continue reading

Iblis the Serpent

A research about Adam, his wife, Iblis and what happened while in the Garden and does Iblis have children
By Khidr Amari, 2012

There are many meanings of the Arabic word Jinn can be found in the Qur’an in terms of its expression.

Allah says that when Musa saw the staff wiriting as if it was a snake:

“And he was told, “Throw down your staff.” But when he saw it writhing as if it jānnun (were a snake), he turned in flight and did not return. [Allah said], “O Moses, approach and fear not. Indeed, you are of the secure.” Sura 28:31

Allah says when we were in mother wombs were were fetuses: Continue reading

Last Supper Figures Detail.jpgThe Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci Maps the Star Path of the Sun
From Free Thought Nation, 2013

Leonardo’s sublime fresco, The Last Supper, depicts the story of the meal Jesus Christ shared with his twelve disciples the night before he was crucified. My analysis of the stances of Christ and the disciples indicates that Leonardo used the twelve constellations of the zodiac, the star path of the sun, as his template for the painting.

The twelve apostles are based on the successive star patterns traversed by the sun each year. Christ himself is modelled on the constellation Pisces, the star position of the Sun at the spring equinox through the two millennia of the Christian Era.

The Last Supper shows animated conversation and high drama, Continue reading

Spirit of the Dead

Liam - eye-of-the-drainJewish Magic and Superstition

5 THE SPIRITS OF THE DEAD

THE ties that bind man to his home and his associates are insoluble—even death cannot part them. Long after the body has departed this life, the spirit still frequents its ancient haunts, maintaining a shadowy connection with the world it knew and loved. This is the conception of death that has prevailed since man first had ideas on the subject, and it persists to this day more or less overtly.

Among Jews it was never completely ousted by the doctrine of the immortality of the soul. After all, according to the prevailing polypsychism of the Middle Ages, man is possessed of several spirits: the Continue reading

Pre-Talmudic Demonology.

Upon pre-Talmudic demonology new light has been thrown by the “Testament of Solomon,” translated by Conybeare in “Jew. Quart. Rev.” (1898, xi. 1-45), a work which, notwithstanding many Christian interpolations, is of ancient Jewish origin and related to the “Book of Healing” (“Sefer Refu’ot”) ascribed to King Solomon (see Pes. iv. 9; Josephus, l.c.; Schürer, “Geseh.” iii. 300). In this “Testament” it is told that by the help of a magic ring with the seal of Pentalpha, Lilith-like vampires, Beelzebub, and all kinds of demons and unclean spirits were brought before Solomon, to whom they disclosed their secrets and told how they could be mastered. It contains incantations against certain diseases, and specifies the task allotted to each of the chief demons in the erection of the Temple.

The latter was a favorite theme of the Haggadists (Pesiḳ. R. vi.; Soṭah 48b; Giṭ. 68a). The later Haggadah ascribed to Moses this power to Continue reading

From Jewish Encyclopedia

Systematic knowledge concerning demons or evil spirits. Demons (Greek, δαίμονες or δαιμόνια; Hebrew, [Deut. xxxii. 17; Ps. cvi. 37] and [Lev. xvii. 7; II Chron. xi. 15; A. V. “devils”; Luther, “Feldgeister” and “Feldteufel”]; Aramaic, or rabbinical, and as spirits animating all elements of life and inhabiting all parts of the world, have their place in the primitive belief of all tribes and races. When certain deities rose to be the objects of regular worship and became the rulers of the powers of life, demons, or spirits, were subordinated to them. But inasmuch as they were still feared and occasionally worshiped by the populace, they became the objects of popular superstition. Continue reading

Bread and Salt

Bread & Salt: The Common Bond

Bread signifies all God given provisions, the abundance in simplicity, the Giver and gift of life in its continuous flow, first things in the day, essential priorities.

A traveler on the mystic path
is content with a loaf of bread;
By its light he may be turned
towards the Light of God.
— Rumi

Aish, “life,” is one ancient Arabic term for bread; accordingly, it is treated with reverence throughout the Continue reading
