Travelling again this week has made blogging a little difficult. Internet access the main problem. That said, I’ve had lots of lovely time for my greatest relaxation – reading, and I’ve taken full advantage. Following on from Ralph Ellis’ King Jesus trilogy, which identifies the biblical Jesus from the historical record as King Manu of Edessa, and nothing even approaching a Christian – more a gnostic, a Jew and a warrior intent on winning power, driving out the Romans from Judaea. He nearly succeeded in his task, but was betrayed by Josephus Flavius, an enemy in his camp, who spied for Rome, and ended up in control of Judaea after the Jewish Revolt was brutally suppressed in AD 70 by Titus Aurelius Vespasian.
Manu was put up on the cross, but, as high Royalty with connections, was taken down and lived on until AD 98.
Josephus Flavius then concocted The New Testament, using his other nom-de-plume, St Paul, transporting the biblical story backwards in time to AD 33, and making Jesus a simple, poor though good man, propagating a ‘turn the other cheek’ religion, ideally suited to the needs of Rome’s empire, offering salvation to its adherents, and ignominy,defeat and death to those who stood in its way, people like the gnostics. Manu was imprisoned in the specially constructed jail in Chester along with his primary followers, while the victor in Judaea Vespasian went on to become Emperor of Rome.
Abgaros Basileus – King Abgaros – meaning King in exile, formerly King Phraataces of Persia, exiled to Edessa next to Judaea. The father of Manu, who became the biblical Jesus in the hands of historian/propagandist/spy Josephus Flavius/St Paul. The Edessan crown shows a line of thorns….The ‘coincidences’ build from there, until the deceptions become undeniable in the hands of historian Ralph Ellis in his King Jesus trilogy of 1500 pages.
My interest naturally went on from that story to the subject of gnosticism. The libraries of the ancient world were burned down in order to hide everything that preceded Christianity, and leading gnostics killed, people like Hypatia of Egypt. There is enough evidence still extant to piece together the history of who they were and what they believed. Before the Abrahamic, salvationist, patriarchal religions of empire, Judaeism, Christianity and Islam were manufactured, belief systems worldwide focused on man’s relation to the earth, the sun and the moon.
These three are the basis of our existence, and we are an emanation from the creation of these entities. Not In His Image, written by John Lamb Lash, explains it, and pulls together as much as he can from the evidence available, though interestingly, he clearly is not yet aware of the work of Ralph Ellis, or doesn’t support it, although his interpretation of The Dead Sea Scrolls is remarkably similar to Ralph Ellis’. Ellis writes as a historian. Lash as a spritual warrior, not frightened to point out the illogicality of a single creator God delivering both the good and the evil into the world. Gnostics believed in the goodness of organic creation, which went wrong when inorganic Archons became embroiled in the process. These two quite separate forces are in conflict with each other, and we, humanity are, thanks to the religions of Empire, not even aware now of the primary battle we should be engaged in. Lash puts us in the picture, explains what humanity must now do, how we must unlearn the fables of Jesus and the other bibles thrust upon us by those who seek our submission, and rediscover the forces that we should be battling to support, and resist. Through a process of initiation, B.C.E. (before the Chjristian era?), gnostics were able to educate the people into where the creative energy that built our world comes from, and saw humanity as capable of great good from using our intelligence, creativity and social skill.
Lash wants us to retake up the battle with the Archons, realise what they are and what they are doing to us. They are incapable of creativity, and can only mirror and mimick. Yet they are skillful deceivers, and have penetrated everything around us to the point that people are now completely taken in and lost.
The two writers, Ellis and Lash are the two sides of the same story, though their approaches couldn’t be more different. I’ve added both to my list of Tap Blog recommended reading.
When in the southern Philippines, I met up with a couple of journalists working in the area of the recent massacre of Police. They told me that the FBI?CIA were present in the area the day before the masacre took place, found out from their contacts with local politicians. How did they know to be around if they weren’t involved? They also told me that in the town where we have a house, there have been three mosques built in the last four years. I could hear the prayers blasting out in the night on loud speakers, which never used to be the case . There seems little doubt the Philippines government is planning to capitulate and create a Moslem controlled State in Mindanao, sectioning off a large part of the island, giving in to the blackmail. The little town where my wife comes from is 97% Christian. Yet it seems it is being shoved in with the new Moslem section. History suggests this population will be suppressed by Sharia, driven out and possibly worse.
The religion of choice worldwide now seems to be Islam. Christianity and Judaeism are powerless to resist, and are sold out to the process at the highest level. With people no longer believing in the bible (except in places like the Philippines, and Americas), the powers that be are seeking to dumb down, suppress and reduce population along with creative economic activity worldwide through war and Islamic domination.
Lamb Lash’s message needs to get a move on, as the free people of the world, who have benefited from the Enlightenment in Christian thought two hundred years ago, are now in severe danger of losing everything we gained. Without the bigger picture being well explained, we are powerless to stop this process of destruction. But with it explained and assisted into our minds, we can resist and must resist. Ellis and Lamb Lash should be on everyone’s reading list so we can unravel the knots in the bonds of deception placed arounds us for over two thousand years. There is work to do, I am afraid. Being cut off from the internet can be a good thing on occasions. Reading is the best place to begin relearning the world and our vital place within it.
