Kevin Miller: Killer’s mother had taken him to a priest to have demon removed

Kevin Miller: Killer’s mother had taken him to a priest to have demon removed

The mother of a cold-blooded killer told police that her son had suffered from mental issues and she believed he was possessed by a demon so she took him to a priest in Tulsa, Oklahoma to have it removed.

Apparently, the exorcism did not work or was not performed because Kevin Ray Miller allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend, Caitlin Harmon who was married to another man in the head as she watched a movie on Netflix on her phone.

Oklahoma police said that the suspect had spent his free time before the murder watching videos on YouTube and he also bought a satanic Bible off of Amazon before performing satanic rituals in his backyard.

Miller confessed to police that on the morning of the murder that he was seeing faces and hearing voices.

According to media reports, the killer was in a custody battle with his ex-girlfriend and he told police that he had killed her because she did not want to be with him and he was jealous of what she had.

The Church of Satan claims that there was never a real person named Satan. I disagree…

The Church of Satan claims that there was never a real person named Satan. I disagree…

Here is a recent Twitter exchange I had with the Church of Satan and its current High Priest, Peter Gilmore. My tweet was directed to their Church because they claim that there was never a person who was named and or represented Satan and that it is a fairy tale.

I even tagged the current Pontifex Maximus, Pope Francis in the tweet with the hopes that he would add his Satanic wisdom to the conversation. But I assume he was too busy dealing with the scandals created by the legions in his midst of whom he said this week the “the Great Accuser has been unchained and is attacking bishops.”

If you are interested in the reading the origins of Satan from the Christian Churches perspective, you can read a few of my previous articles such as, Who is Satan?Why Saint Peter is Called Satan by Jesus, and Why Saint Peter is Called Satan by Jesus where I explain the true history of Satan and the fact that he was a real person.

Pope Francis says the Great Accuser has been unchained and is attacking bishops

Pope Francis says the Great Accuser has been unchained and is attacking bishops

Pope Francis said on Tuesday, September 11, “In these times, it seems like the ‘Great Accuser’ has been unchained and is attacking bishops,” according to the Vatican.

Pope Francis gives the homily as he celebrates morning Mass in the chapel of his residence, the Domus Sanctae Marthae, at the Vatican Sept. 11. The pope said the devil seeks to reveal sins in order to scandalize the people of God. (CNS photo/Vatican Media) See POPE-HOMILY-ACCUSER-SATAN Sept. 11, 2018.

Francis made the remarks at Mass in the Casa Santa Marta inviting Roman Catholic bishops to overcome the “Great Accuser”, who seeks to create scandal, through prayer, humility, and nearness to God’s people.

The Pope said, “True, we are all sinners, we bishops. He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people. ”

The ‘Great Accuser’, as he himself says to God in the first chapter of the Book of Job, ‘roams the earth looking for someone to accuse’. A bishop’s strength against the ‘Great Accuser’ is prayer, that of Jesus and his own, and the humility of being chosen and remaining close to the people of God, without seeking an aristocratic life that removes this unction. Let us pray, today, for our bishops: for me, for those who are here, and for all the bishops throughout the world.”

Archbishop Georg Gänswein, Secretary of Benedict XVI, had said how the date of September 11 is now associated with countless victims at a book signing this week, according to the Italian media publication Ansa.it;

“Today is September 11th, the date of an apocalyptic disaster, and also the Church is in the whirlwind of news in recent weeks and all the more following the publication of the report by the grand jury of Pennsylvania, we look in shock at our own September 11th, even if our catastrophe is unfortunately not associated with a single date but so many days and years and countless victims.”

Gaenswein further stated, “that during his papacy, Benedict repeated denounced the gravity of pedophilia, calling it an attack on the Church from within. On Monday Pope Francis’ nine top cardinal advisers said the Holy See was preparing the “necessary clarifications” about accusations that the pontiff was among top Vatican officials to cover up sexual misconduct by a former cardinal in the United States.”

The Theology of the Phoenicians from Sanchoniatho

The Theology of the Phoenicians from Sanchoniatho

The text below contains The Theology of the Phoenicians from Sanchoniatho.

Sanchoniatho was of Phoenician descent and one of the most esteemed authors of his time.

Second century Christian Bishop and Church Historian, Eusebius of Caesarea said that he wrote the truest history about the Jews because he obtained records from “Hierombalus” priest of the god Ieuo (Yahweh).

These Phoenician writings I seem to resonate with being that it is closest to my ancestors given the fact that I’m also of Phoenician descent. What stands out in particular for me is the Cosmology section which begins with Erebus and Wind, between which Eros ‘Desire’ came to be.

From this was produced Môt which is the Semitic word for ‘Death’ but which the account says may mean ‘mud’ which some call Ilus (Mud), but others the putrefaction of a watery mixture. And from this sprung all the seed of the creation, and the generation of the universe.

And there were certain animals without sensation, from which intelligent animals were produced, and these were called Zophasemin, that is, the overseers of the heavens.

Here is The Theology of the Phoenicians from Sanchoniatho…

COSMOLOGY

He supposes that the beginning of all things was a dark and condensed windy air, or a breeze of thick air and a Chaos turbid and black as Erebus: and that these were unbounded, and for a long series of ages destitute of form. But when this wind became enamored of its own first principles (the Chaos), and an intimate union took place, that connexion was called Pothos: and it was the beginning of the creation of all things.

And it (the Chaos) knew not its own production; but from its embrace with the wind was generated Môt; which some call Ilus (Mud), but others the putrefaction of a watery mixture. And from this sprung all the seed of the creation, and the generation of the universe.

And there were certain animals without sensation, from which intelligent animals were produced, and these were called Zophasemin, that is, the overseers of the heavens; and they were formed in the shape of an egg: and from Môt shone forth the sun, and the moon, the less and the greater stars.

And when the air began to send forth light, by its fiery influence on the sea and earth, winds were produced, and clouds, and very great defluxions and torrents of the heavenly waters. And when they were thus separated, and carried out of their proper places by the heat of the sun, and all met again in the air, and were dashed against each other, thunder and lightnings were the result: and at the sound of the thunder, the before-mentioned intelligent animals were aroused, and startled by the noise, and moved upon the earth and in the sea, male and female. (After this our author proceeds to say:)

These things were found written in the Cosmogony of Taautus, and in his commentaries, and were drawn from his observations and the natural signs which by his penetration he perceived and discovered, and with which he has enlightened us.

(Afterwards, declaring the names of the winds Notus, Boreas, and the rest, he makes this epilogue:)—But these first men consecrated the productions of the earth, and judged them gods, and worshipped those things, upon which they themselves lived, and all their posterity, and all before them; to these they made libations and sacrifices. (Then he proceeds:—Such were the devices of their worship in accordance with the imbecility and narrowness of their souls.)—Euseb. Præp. Evan. lib. I. c. 10.

THE GENERATIONS

Of the wind Colpias, and his wife Baau, which is interpreted Night, were begotten two mortal men, Æon and Protogonus so called: and Æon discovered food from trees.

The immediate descendants of these were called Genus and Genea, and they dwelt in Phœnicia: and when there were great droughts they stretched forth their hands to heaven towards the Sun; for him they supposed to be God, the only lord of heaven, calling him Beelsamin, which in the Phœnician dialect signifies Lord of Heaven, but among the Greeks is equivalent to Zeus.

Afterwards by Genus the son of Æon and Protogonus were begotten mortal children, whose names were Phôs, Pûr, and Phlox. These found out the method of producing fire by rubbing pieces of wood against each other, and taught men the use thereof.

These begat sons of vast bulk and height, whose names were conferred upon the mountains which they occupied: thus from them Cassius, and Libanus, and Antilibanus, and Brathu received their names.

Memrumus and Hypsuranius were the issue of these men by connexion with their mothers; the women of those times, without shame, having intercourse with any men whom they might chance to meet. Hypsuranius inhabited Tyre: and he invented huts constructed of reeds and rushes, and the papyrus. And he fell into enmity with his brother Usous, who was the inventor of clothing for the body which he made of the skins of the wild beasts which he could catch.

And when there were violent storms of rain and wind, the trees about Tyre being rubbed against each other, took fire, and all the forest in the neighbourhood was consumed. And Usous having taken a tree, and broken off its boughs, was the first who dared to venture on the sea. And he consecrated two pillars to Fire and Wind, and worshipped them, and poured out upon them the blood of the wild beasts he took in hunting: and when these men were dead, those that remained consecrated to them rods, and worshipped the pillars, and held anniversary feasts in honour of them.

And in times long subsequent to these; were born of the race of Hypsuranius, Agreus and Halieus, the inventors of the arts of hunting and fishing, from whom huntsmen and fishermen derive their names.

Of these were begotten two brothers who discovered iron, and the forging thereof. One of these called Chrysor, who is the same with Hephæstus, exercised himself in words, and charms and divinations; and he invented the hook, and the bait, and the fishing-line, and boats of a light construction; he was the first of all men that sailed. Wherefore he was worshipped after his death as a God, under the name of Diamichius. And it is said that his brothers invented the art of building walls with bricks.

Afterwards, of this race were born two youths, one of whom was called Technites, and the other was called Geïnus Autochthôn. These discovered the method of mingling stubble with the loam of bricks, and of baking them in the sun; they were also the inventors of tiling.

By these were begotten others, of whom one was named Agrus, the other Agrouerus or Agrotes, of whom in Phœnicia there was a statue held in the highest veneration, and a temple drawn by yokes of oxen: and at Byblus he is called, by way of eminence, the greatest of the Gods. These added to the houses, courts and porticos and crypts: husbandmen, and such as hunt with dogs, derive their origin from these: they are called also Aletæ, and Titans.

From these were descended Amynus and Magus, who taught men to construct villages and tend flocks.

By these men were begotten Misor and Sydyc, that is, Well-freed and Just: and they found out the use of salt.

From Misor descended Taautus, who invented the writing of the first letters: him the Egyptians called Thoor, the Alexandrians Thoyth, and the Greeks Hermes. But from Sydyc descended the Dioscuri, or Cabiri, or Corybantes, or Samothraces: these (he says) first built a ship complete.

From these descended others; who were the discoverers of medicinal herbs, and of the cure of poisons and of charms.

Contemporary with these was one Elioun, called Hypsistus, (the most high); and his wife named Beruth, and they dwelt about Byblus.

By these was begotten Epigeus or Autochthon, whom they afterwards called Ouranus (Heaven); so that from him that element, which is over us, by reason of its excellent beauty is named heaven: and he had a sister of the same parents, and she was called Ge (Earth), and by reason of her beauty the earth was called by the same name.

Hypsistus, the father of these, having been killed in a conflict with wild beasts, was consecrated, and his children offered libations and sacrifices unto him.

But Ouranus, succeeding to the kingdom of his father, contracted a marriage with his sister Ge, and had by her four sons, Ilus who is called Cronus, and Betylus, and Dagon, which signifies Siton (Bread-corn,) and Atlas.

But by other wives Ouranus had much issue; at which Ge, being vexed and jealous of Ouranus, reproached him so that they parted from each other: nevertheless Ouranus returned to her, again by force whenever he thought proper, and having laid with her, again departed: he attempted also to kill the children whom he had by her; but Ge often defended herself with the assistance of auxiliary powers.

But when Cronus arrived at man’s estate, acting by the advice and with the assistance of Hermes Trismegistus, who was his secretary, he opposed himself to his father Ouranus, that he might avenge the indignities which had been offered to his mother.

And to Cronus were born children, Persephone and Athena; the former of whom died a virgin; but, by the advice of Athena and Hermes, Cronus made a scimitar and a spear of iron. Then Hermes addressed the allies of Cronus with magic words, and wrought in them a keen desire to make war against Ouranus in behalf of Ge. And Cronus having thus overcome Ouranus in battle, drove him from his kingdom, and succeeded him in the imperial power.

In the battle was taken a well-beloved concubine of Ouranus who was pregnant; and Cronus bestowed her in marriage upon Dagon, and, whilst she was with him, she was delivered of the child which she had conceived by Ouranus, and called his name Demarous.

After these events Cronus surrounded his habitation with a wall, and founded Byblus, the first city of Phœnicia. Afterwards Cronus having coneived a suspicion of his own brother Atlas, by the advice of Hermes, threw him into a deep cavern in the earth, and buried him.

At this time the descendants of the Dioscuri, having built some light and other more complete ships, put to sea; and being cast away over against Mount Cassius, there consecrated a temple.

But the auxiliaries of Ilus, who is Cronus, were called Eloeim, as it were, the allies of Cronus; being so called after Cronus. And Cronus, having a son called Sadidus, dispatched him with his own sword, because he held him in suspicion, and with his own hand deprived his child of life. And in like manner he cut off the head of his own daughter, so that all the gods were astonished at the disposition of Cronus.

But in process of time, whilst Ouranus was still in banishment, he sent his daughter Astarte, being a virgin, with two other of her sisters, Rhea and Dione, to cut off Cronus by treachery; but Cronus took the damsels, and married them notwithstanding they were his own sisters. When Ouranus understood this, he sent Eimarmene and Mora with other auxiliaries to make war against Cronus: but Cronus gained the affections of these also, and detained them with himself. Moreover, the god Ouranus devised Bætulia, contriving stones that moved as having life.

And by Astarte Cronus had seven daughters called Titanides, or Artemides; by Rhea also he had seven sons, the youngest of whom was consecrated from his birth; also by Dione he had daughters; and by Astarte again he had two other sons, Pothos and Eros.

And Dagon, after he had found out bread-corn, and the plough, was called Zeus Arotrius.

To Sydyc, who was called the just, one of the Titanides bare Asclepius: and to Cronus there were born also in Peræa three sons, Cronus bearing the same name with his father, and Zeus Belus, and Apollo.

Contemporary with these were Pontus, and Typhon, and Nereus the father of Pontus: from Pontus descended Sidon, who by the excellence of her singing first invented the hymns of odes or praises: and Poseidon.

But to Demarous was born Melicarthus, who is also called Heracles.

Ouranus then made war against Pontus, but afterwards relinquishing the attack he attached himself to Demarous, when Demarous invaded Pontus: but Pontus put him to flight, and Demarous vowed a sacrifice for his escape.

In the thirty-second year of his power and reign, Ilus, who is Cronus, having laid an ambuscade for his father Ouranus in a certain place situated in the middle of the earth, when he had got him into his hands dismembered him over against the fountains and rivers. There Ouranus was consecrated, and his spirit was separated, and the blood of his parts flowed into the fountains and the waters of the rivers; and the place, which was the scene of this transaction, is shewed even to this day.

(Then our historian, after some other things, goes on thus:) But Astarte called the greatest, and Demarous named Zeus, and Adodus who is entitled the king of gods, reigned over the country by the consent of Cronus: and Astarte put upon her head, as the mark of her sovereignty, a bull’s head: and travelling about the habitable world, she found a star falling through the air, which she took up, and consecrated in the holy island of Tyre: and the Phœnicians say that Astarte is the same as Aphrodite.

Moreover, Cronus visiting the different regions of habitable world, gave to his daughter Athena the kingdom of Attica: and when there happened a plague with a great mortality, Cronus offered up his only begotten son as a sacrifice to his father Ouranus, and circumcised himself, and compelled his allies to do the same: and not long afterwards he consecrated after his death another of his sons, called Muth, whom he had by Rhea; this (Muth) the Phœnicians esteem the same as Death and Pluto.

After these things, Cronus gave the city of Byblus to the goddess Baaltis, which is Dione, and Berytus to Poseidon, and to the Caberi who were husbandmen and fishermen: and they consecrated the remains of Pontus at Berytus.

But before these things the god Taautus, having pourtrayed Ouranus, represented also the countenances of the gods Cronus, and Dagon, and the sacred characters of the elements. He contrived also for Cronus the ensign of his royal power, having four eyes in the parts before and in the parts behind, two of them closing as in sleep; and upon the shoulders four wings, two in the act of flying, and two reposing as at rest. And the symbol was, that Cronus whilst he slept was watching, and reposed whilst he was awake.

And in like manner with respect to the wings, that he was flying whilst he rested, yet rested whilst he flew. But for the other gods there were two wings only to each upon his shoulders, to intimate that they flew under the controul of Cronus; and there were also two wings upon the head, the one as a symbol of the intellectual part, the mind, and the other for the senses.

And Cronus visiting the country of the south, gave all Egypt to the god Taautus, that it might be his kingdom.

These things, says he, the Caberi, the seven sons of Sydyc, and their eighth brother Asclepius, first of all set down in the records in obedience to the commands of the god Taautus.

All these things the son of Thabion, the first Hierophant of all among the Phœnicians, allegorized and mixed up with the occurrences and accidents of nature and the world, and delivered to the priests and prophets, the superintendants of the mysteries: and they, perceiving the rage for these allegories increase, delivered them to their successors, and to foreigners: of whom one was Isiris, the inventor of the three letters, the brother of Chna who; is called the first Phœnician.—Euseb. Præp. Evan. lib. I. c. 10.

OF THE MYSTICAL SACRIFICE OF THE PHOENICIANS

It was the custom among the ancients, in times of great calamity, in order to prevent the ruin of all, for the rulers of the city or nation to sacrifice to the avenging deities the most beloved of their children as the price of redemption: they who were devoted this purpose were offered mystically.

For Cronus, whom the Phœnicians call Il, and who after his death was deified and instated in the planet which bears his name, when king, had by a nymph of the country called Anobret an only son, who on that account is styled Ieoud, for so the Phœnicians still call an only son: and when great dangers from war beset the land he adorned the altar, and invested this son with the emblems of royalty, and sacrificed him.—Euseb. Præp. Evan. lib. I. c. 10.—lib. IV.

OF THE SERPENT

Taautus first attributed something of the divine nature to the serpent and the serpent tribe; in which he was followed by the Phœnicians and Egyptians. For this animal was esteemed by him to be the most inspirited of all the reptiles, and of a fiery nature; inasmuch as it exhibits an incredible celerity, moving by its spirit without either hands, or feet, or any of those external members, by which other animals effect their motion. And in its progress it assumes a variety of forms, moving in a spiral course, and darting forward with whatever degree of swiftness it pleases. It is moreover long-lived, and has the quality not only of putting off its old age, and assuming a second youth, but of receiving at the same time an augmentation of its size and strength. And when it has fulfilled the appointed measure of its existence, it consumes itself; as Taautus has laid down in the sacred books; upon which account this animal is introduced in the sacred rites and mysteries.—Euseb. Præp. Evan. lib. I. c. 10.

Gnostic prophets are rewriting genesis in the halls of the Vatican

Gnostic prophets are rewriting genesis in the halls of the Vatican

The former head of the Vatican Bank recently told the media, “To transform the divine genesis into a gnostic genesis, and to do this at the Pontifical Academy inside the Vatican would be their masterpiece.”

Yes, these are Gnostic times…

The quote above was made by Italian economist and banker Ettore Gotti Tedeschi in July while speaking at the first international conference of the John Paul II academy for human life and the family.

Tedeschi said those currently advising the “top of the Church are population control advocates such as Paul Ehrlich, Jeffrey Sachs, and the former UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon — people he had claimed are the “gnostic prophets.”

He states that there are efforts to decrease the world’s population by globalist elites have set in motion a series of predictable and intended economic, geo-political, and social catastrophes meant to “persuade” people around the world to accept a global “political vision” that would eliminate national sovereignty and institute “gnostic environmentalism” as its “universal religion.”

So what can the Church do? “The Church will either collide or be isolated,” he said. But “something has happened that should worry a lot of people,” he added referring to recent actions taken, in particular, by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

“We are near” to this happening, he added. “This should worry everyone.”

Apollo’s Cretan Dolphins of Gnosis

Apollo’s Cretan Dolphins of Gnosis

“And whereas I first, in the misty sea, sprung aboard the swift ship in the guise of a dolphin, therefore pray to me as Apollo Delphinus (Apollo the Dolphin).” – Homeric Hymn to Apollo

In ancient times, the dolphin was said to be a messenger of the Gods and a type of oracle for the Sons of God. It is no wonder because they are extremely clever and kind to humans and Pliny calls them the fastest of all animals.

One of the most famous legends of the dolphin is about one of the most favored sons of Zeus was Apollo who in the guise of a delph AKA dolphin led a boat-load of Cretans to what is known in legend as Delphi.

The Homeric hymns show that Apollo himself is introduced conducting a band of Cretans, who came from the city of Gnosis – Knossos at his sanctuary at the foot of Parnassus, where he constitutes them his ministers ie: priests.

It is here at the palace of Gnosis at Knossos where you will find the Dolphins of Apollo in what is known as the famous “Dolphin Fresco.”

This is why Apollo’s most important name in the Cretan legends is Delphinius and his hereditary priests and priestesses of Pythia are the true oracles of Delphi.

Traditionally, Apollo and his twin sister, Artemis who is the Roman Diana, were born just 7 miles from the Holy Island of Crete on the isle once known as Delos (Δήλος) and Kos, which today is called Dia.

This island is where the Kohanim Levites had hailed from with their temple of healing called The House of Asklepios (iEsculapius) which we know today was home to the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates  (Greek: Ἱπποκράτης; Hippokrátēs; c. 460 BC – c. 370 BC) and where he had operated his world-famous school of medicine.

A person who comes from the island Kos (Coos) is called a Koan in English, and a Cohen or Kohen (or Kohain; Hebrew: כֹּהֵן, “priest”, pl. כֹּהֲנִים Kohanim) which is simply the Hebrew word for priest. Hence, your last name does not have to be “Kohen or Cohen” to be a member of this biblical family.

From this Dragon shaped island, Apollo went to Pytho (Delphi), where he slew Python, the dragon that guarded the area. He established his oracle by taking on the guise of a dolphin, leaping aboard a Cretan ship, and forcing the crew to serve him. From this point forward, Delos was one of the most sacred places of ancient Greece.

Further connections to Crete can be found in the story of the Labyrinth when Crete when Theseus dedicated to him the statue of Aphrodite which Ariadne had taken from Crete. On his return from Crete he danced about Apollo’s altar at Delos and instituted the cult of Apollo.

The lyre and bow are Apollos main instruments which are also bother credited to the development of the Cretans and also as their national symbols are more evidence of his origins with the Apollo of Crete.

It was said that in classical times, Delos now known as Dia was the center of an island confederation (Atlantis Legends), bound together by the common religion of Apollo, and only broken up by the overwhelming power of Athens.

It is very interesting to note how the Cretan Apollo is also connected with the U.S.A and how actual Cretan influence on the American Masonic Gnostic religion.

School Children in Peru Reported Demon Possessed

School Children in Peru Reported Demon Possessed

This article is part of my Demon research which dolphin tales the Delphic Oracles and my theory that these vapors were parasitic fungi/molds which are the disembodied evil airy spirits AKA artificial spirits of dead people.

In May 2016, approximately 80 school students from a small village in northern Peru mysteriously started convulsing, screaming and many described visions of a man in black trying to kill them. Local villagers are claiming it was a case of ‘demonic possession’,

It’s no wonder, turns out the Elsa Perea Flores School in Tarapoto was said to be built on a Mafia graveyard.

Disturbing video footage shows students aged 11-14 years-old fainting, screaming and spitting froth from their mouths. One pupil told the media, “It’s disturbing for me to think about it. It’s as if someone kept on chasing me from behind.

‘It was a tall man all dressed in black and with a big beard and it felt like he was trying to strangle me.

‘My friends say I was screaming desperately, but I don’t remember much.’

Other schoolgirls also complained of similar experiences.

Another anonymous girl said, “Several children from different classrooms fainted at the same time. I got nauseous and started vomiting. I heard voices. A man in black chased me and wanted to touch me.”

Paranormal investigator, Franklin Steiner said, “It is known that years ago there were many victims of terrorism here. When this school was built, some say bones and dead bodies were found.”

A local media channel, The Mirror said that the students had been suffering from a “contagious condition” and even talk about breathing in vapors since last month.

Doctor Antony Choy stated that his team could not find a scientific reason behind the students’ unusual behavior.

“We don’t understand how this has kept on going on. We know it started on 29th April and now it is still happening. Now there are almost 80 pupils [still affected].”

Was the Pentagon UFO program canceled due to fear of conjuring demons?

Was the Pentagon UFO program canceled due to fear of conjuring demons?

“a cabal of religious fundamentalists inside the national security apparatus believes UFOs and paranormal are satanic and by studying them, we risk inviting Satan into our world.” – George Knapp (Reporter)

In an interview with Las Vegas Now, former senior U.S. intelligence official, Luis Elizondo said that the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), a secret UFO research program that was shut down in 2012 over alleged budge concerns was actually partly due to the Evangelical Christian religious beliefs of senior officials in the program.

Elizondo said in the May 2018 interview that the study would become an embarrassment for the department and because it also conflicted with the religious beliefs of some officials.

In an interview with the Metro UK, Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator with the UK’s Ministry of Defense, said had also experienced pushback from people’s belief in God and demonic forces;

“I was aware that Pentagon pushback on UFO research was in part due to the religious belief of some of those involved,” Pope told the outlet. “It was an odd irony that UFO investigations were being hampered because some people’s belief in God meant that they either didn’t believe in the existence of extraterrestrial life or that they regarded UFOs and extraterrestrials as demonic.”

In a response to a follower on Twitter, KLAS TV Investigative reporter George Knapp is also stating that government sources claiming that inside “the national security apparatus believes UFOs and paranormal are satanic and by studying them, we risk inviting Satan into our world.”

Here is a quote from Nick Redfern saying this .Gov group believes that the UFO phenomenon is demonic over at Jason Covalito’s blog

The Cretan City of Cutha

The Cretan City of Cutha

The Ancient Babylonian ie: Samaritan city of Cutha or Cuth (Heb. כּוּת, II Kings 17:30; כּוּתָה; II Kings 17:24) was the Capital for a people who we know today over the course of history by various names such as the Kush, Cush, Kish, Cuthites, Cushite, Cutheans, Chaldeans, Babylonians, and Samaritans – to name a few. However, in the Talmud, the name “Cutheans” referred to “all Samaritans” and the contract tablets found by Rassam at Tel-Ibrahim (Abraham) shows that the ancient name of Cuthah was also spelled, Gudua or Kutu (Kuta).

The city of Kutu AKA Cuthah was known as the Capital of the God of the underworld ie: Hell – Nergal with his central temple called É-MES-LAM (Meslam House), stood in Cuthah (cf. e.g., Laws of Hammurapi, Preamble, line 71), and the Cuthean colonists in the province of Samaria established this cult there (II Kings 17:30).

We find in a Sumerian text (IV R. 26, No. i) the city Gudua referred to the Nergal, where he is called here Un-Gudua, “Lord of Kutha,” this only confirms the familiar statement from II Kings 17, 30 that Kutha was the center for the cult of Nergal.

According to author Archibald Henry Sayce, Nergal was the local deity of the town called Gudua, “the resting-place,” by the Accadians — a name changed by the Semites into Kutu or Cutha — which is now represented by the mounds of Tel-Ibrahim. (Lectures on the Origin and Growth of Religion) These Semites I would assume are connected to the Cretans through the Tribe of the Samaritans with their priests being the Levites whose lion-headed god of the Underworld (Hell/Modernity) Nergal,’ the god of the great city of the dead called Gudua was the cemetery where all their (my) fathers were buried.

It is here at Kutu or Kutha, which is also the name of the capital of the Sumerian AKA Mesopotamian underworld where “Irkalla AKA Kur, Irkalla, Kukku, Arali, Kigal, and various other names, was a dark, dreary cavern located deep below the ground, where inhabitants were believed to continue “a shadowy version of life on earth”.

The only food or drink was dry dust, but family members of the deceased would pour libations for them to drink.”

What I have found interesting about this ancient story is that the underworld was also the abode of various demons such as the child-devourer demon known as Lamashtu, the fearsome wind demon and protector god Pazuzu, and the demons who drag people into the underworld to be tortured were called the “galla.”

We can connect this demon galla to the Samaritans, Galileans with their Holy Cocks and God Nergal.  Galla or Gal is where we get the English word cock or rooster which in Greek is ἀλέκτωρ, ορος, ὁ or alektór and in Latin is gallus or gallinaceous. The surname for Jesus being a Galilean (Cock/Rooster) from Gallillee and his Apostles like Simon who was surnamed Peter were Galileans as well. (Matthew 26:69; John 7:41)

Lest we not forget that the King of Demons in Judaism is named Asmodeus (Ashmedai) who according to the Kabbalah, is a cambion, born as the result of a union between King David, and the Queen of Demons named Agrat Bat Mahlat who was a succubus. David was the second king of the United Kingdom of Israel and Judah, and also an ancestor of Jesus.

The 7th century Pope, Gregory the Great named Asmodeus as an angel of the Order of Thrones. The Order of Thrones is the most influential Christian angelic hierarchy. A throne is some type of ceremonial chair for a sovereign, bishop, or similar figure possibly like the one uncovered in the Palace of Gnosis AKA Knossos on Crete?

His mother and ancestor of the Lord – Agrat Bat Mahlat was a female demon who is referred to as succubus, and who appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. The male counterpart is the incubus.

In the Tanakh, Cuthah was one of the five Syrian and Mesopotamian cities from which Sargon II, King of Assyria, brought settlers to take the places of the exiled Israelites (2 Kings 17:24-30). II Kings relates that these settlers were attacked by lions.

Another connection to these people we find in the Scripture being the Tribe of Gad – AKA Gadites (Gudua) who in Deuteronomy is the division of land was given the territory north of Aroer by the Arnon Gorge, including half the hill country of Gilead, together with its towns. Their tribe was said to be fierce and warlike; they were “strong men of might, men of war for the battle, that could handle shield and buckler, their faces the faces of lions, and like roes upon the mountains for swiftness” ( 1 Chronicles 12:8 ; 5:19-22 ).

Please keep in mind that Satan who we know the Church Fathers had called Simon Magus was also a Samaritan and Galilean is associated with the symbology of the lion and the Lord Jesus as being a lion of the Tribe of Judah and also a Galilean.

In the Scripture, we find that the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh had 44,760 men ready for military service—able-bodied men who could handle shield and sword, who could use a bow, and who were trained for battle.  These references of being strong in war and also the ability to use the bow may be another connection to the ancient famous archers from the island of Crete who I mention often and would of at that time fit this description.

One of the most famous biblical prophets, Elijah was also from the Tribe of Gad or a Gadite according to Genesis Rabba 71, and in I Kings 17:1. There was also someone known as Gad the Seer who has a book after his namesake (I Chron. 29:29, I Sam. 22:5, II Sam. 24-11-19, I Chron. 21:9-19, II Chron. 29:25) who also is believed to be a Gadite.

Then the angel of the Lord commanded Gad to say to David, that David should go up, and set up an altar unto the Lord in the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite. And David went up at the saying of Gad, which he spake in the name of the Lord… And he set the Levites in the house of the Lord with cymbals, with psalteries, and with harps, according to the commandment of David, and of Gad the king’s seer, and Nathan the prophet: for so was the commandment of the Lord by his prophets.(1 Chronicles 21:18)

As I have mentioned many times before, when researching history and ancient names, especially those after the creation of the Tower of Babble, you will find that they have a plethora of different spellings and or have been changed altogether depending on the language, royal patron, and or the ancient ax to grind of the historian.

For example, when researching the city of Cutha or Cuth, you will find that this name is also spelled “Gudua, Gaudo, Cauda, Ur and or Kutû(m).” The Talmud lists the City as Cutha or Cuth and the Roman-Jewish Historian Josephus working for his royal patron- Augustus Caesar said it was called Ur (Ant., 9:279) and was still known in their time, which was Abraham’s original homeland according to Genesis (11:31; 15:7).

With that said, I was not surprised when I found that the name “Gudua, Gaudo, or Cauda” is mentioned in Acts as a small island where the Apostle Paul landed after leaving the Holy Island of Crete. You will find this island South of Crete that was once known in lost (covered) history as Gaudo and today is known as “Gavdos.”

It is the southernmost Greek island, located to the south of its much larger neighbor, Crete, of which it is administratively a part, in the regional unit of Chania. Gavdos is described by Homer as the place where Odysseus shipwrecked on his way to Troy.

This island later appears in the biblical account of Paul‘s journey to Rome in Acts 27 as “Clauda” (Κλαῦδα) or “Cauda” (Καῦδα). The island was also referred to as “Cauda” by Roman geographer Pomponius Mela, and as “Gaudos” by PlinyPtolemy called Gavdos “Claudos” (Κλαῦδος), the Venetians called it “Gotzo” and from the 17th to the 19th centuries, the island was known as “Gondzo”. A Turkish name of Godzo was “Bougadoz”. (Wikipedia)

Today on this island you will find what we may someday call “the beaches of the Prophets” such as “one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe,” called “Agios Ioannis” or Ioannes (Greek: Ιωάννης), shortened to Giannis or Yannis (Γιάννης), which is a Greek given name cognate with Johannes and John

Interestingly, a name that would parallel the Biblical story of John as a possible connection to Crete and also this island of Gavdos is Potamos Beach. A name very similar and almost the exact spelling as Patmos, which some of you will know is the place where John had written the Revelation in The Cave of the Apocalypse said to be located about halfway up the mountain on the Aegean island of Patmos.

Furthering my own revelations in researching this idyllic Potamos Beach, I have discovered that not far from its sandy shores about halfway up the mountain are a series of mysterious caves.

The Pythia Priesthood of the Delphic Oracles

The Pythia Priesthood of the Delphic Oracles

Outside their Temple carved in stone were the ancient Gnostic maxims, “Know Thyself” and “Nothing in Excess”. For more than 1,100 years, they were some of the most powerful people to have ever rule the globe from what was once known as the center, naval, and soul of the world on the Holy Island of Crete.

It was here where the High Priestess of Pythia would speak mysterious prophecies as she sat atop the tripod with her legs spread and no undergarments as the vapors creeped into her mouth, nostrils, and vagina from the pit below. The name Pythia is derived from Pytho, which is derived from púthein – meaning “to rot”, and is said refers to the sickly smell of the decomposition of the body of the monstrous Python after she was slain by Apollo.

Upon the altar in the Temple burned sweet incense to hide the pungent smell of the misty smoke and the walls and roof were covered all over with laurel garlands. Intoxicating fumes would rise from deep within a small cavern in the ground at the center of the temple where there stood a high tripod, on which the High Priestess – Pythia, took her seat whenever the oracle was to be consulted.

The tripod was perforated with holes that allowed the vapors to completely envelop the Pythia. As she straddled herself over the tripod with her legs spread wide allowing the spirits of the vapors to enter into her bodily orifices, which caused her body to enlarge, her hair stand on end, her complexion changed, her heart panted, her bosom swelled and her voice became seemingly more than human.

These mysterious vapors would completely change the Priestess into another being that they believed could prophesy and tell the future. This smoke rising from the pit affected her body and brain in such a manner that she fell into a state of what can possibly be described today as “religious ecstasy” or “speaking in tongues.”

Here is an ancient depiction from a scene of the Delphic Oracle which shows the Pythia Priestess enveloped in serpents alongside Athena and Pylades and Erinyes (330 BCE). In Greek mythology, the Erinyes, also known as Furies, were female deities of vengeance who were sometimes referred to as “infernal goddesses.”

These were the first prophets (prophētai,προφῆται”, singular prophētēs) – meaning “one who speaks on behalf of another person” and I believe from these virgin women, the Lord and his Apostles were born.

Speaking of the rotting carcass of Pytho, Pausanias relates a text where she is called “the great and terrible monster, the nurse of Typhon, who devastated the land”, which I speculate could have been in reference to the previous religion and or cult of the Cretans being centered upon the Great Mother and nature who represented the earth but after her death, she represented death and war, for now, the vapors from her rotting carcass of a religion encompass the whole earth in a dark mist.

Pausanias writes in the first person how Apollo slew Pytho;

“Here,” says Apollo, “ will I build a splendid temple to be an oracle for men ; they shall bring hecatombs from the Peloponnesus, from Europe, and from the isles, and I will make revelations unto mortals in my sanctu~ my.” Having thus spoken, Phoebus Apollo laid the foundations, and upon them Tropho~ nice and Agamedes, sons of Erginus, placed the stone threshold, aided by countless tribes of men, and raised the temple with polished blocks of stone.

And hard by there was a spring of pure water, guarded by a she-dragon, a great and terrible monster, the nurse of Typhon, who devastated the land ; and the Lord Apollo slew her with his sharp arrows, and, having slain her, he mocked her and said: “ There lie and rot upon the ground.

No longer shalt thou be a scourge to my worshippers. Neither Typhoeus nor the dread Chimaera shall save thee from death, but here shall the black earth and the sun god Hyperion cause thee to rot.” So he spake exalting, and darkness covered her eyes, and the sun caused her body to rot, whence the place is now called Pytho, and the Lord Apollo the Pythian.

In The Travels of Lycurgus, it speaks of his arrival at Delphos to consult the oracle of Apollo, who he states is worshipped there under the name of Pythian, from the serpent Python, which he killed. It is written;

“Over the vent of the cavity a tripod is placed, which the Pythia, or priestess, mounts, when consulted, and from which she gives the oracle. The priestess was a long time preparing by sacrifices and purifications a fast of three days and other ceremonies before she ascended the tripod. I presented my offering: the Pythia mounted the sacred tripod, and the god denoted his approach by the agitation of a laurel that stands before the gate of the temple, which shook to its very foundations.

No sooner had the divine vapour, like a penetrating fire, diffused itself through the veins of the priestess, than her hair stood erect, and her looks grew wild and furious; she foamed at the mouth; a sudden and violent tremor convulsed her whole frame, and all the symptoms of distraction and frenzy were marked upon her countenance. She eyed me with fixed attention, and exclaimed:

“A friend of the gods, and rather a god than a man!” Here she ceased: her lips trembled, and she appeared agonized with the divine spirit that inflamed her soul. At length she again burst out into this exclamation:

“O Spartan! O favored of the gods! thy country shall flourish as long as the laws, which thou art about to establish, shall flourish: it shall become the most glorious and potent”

He concludes, “The words here died upon her lips; she gasped for breath and was led, pale and trembling, to her cell. I departed, satisfied with the answer that I had received.”

In my opinion, these mysterious vapors that were said to be from the rotting body of the serpent relate to fungi/molds that resided in these pits of which, “I will say no more.”

The 1st century BC Cretan historian, Diodorus Siculus tells of the mythology of the Oracle of Delphi that it was founded by a goat herder named Coretas who fed his flocks on Mount Parnassus. As the animals wandered here and there in pursuit of food, they “happened to approach a deep and long chasm in the rock.

From this chasm, a vapor issued, and the goats had no sooner inhaled a portion of the vapor than they began to play and frisk about with singular agility. The goatherder observing this, and curious to discover the cause, held his head over the chasm and in a short time the fumes having ascended to his brain, he threw himself into a variety of strange attitudes and uttered words which were supposed to have a prophetic meaning.

A temple was then erected on the spot, and dedicated to Apollo which is known as the Oracle of Delphi.

The word oracle comes from the Latin verb ōrāre, “to speak” and properly refers to the priest or priestess of Pythia uttering the prophecy containing the revelations of the God Apollo which were written down and interpreted by the priests who afterward communicated to the persons who had come to consult the oracle.

How the word delphi is connected to the dolphin and Apollo is described in an old Delphian or Pythian oracle. “It is open to students to regard the dolphin as only one of the many animals whose earlier worship is concentrated in Apollo, or to take the creature for the symbol of spring when seafaring becomes easier to mortals, or to interpret the dolphin as the result of a volks-etymologic (popular derivation), in which the name Delphi (meaning originally a hollow in the hills) was connected with delphis, the dolphin.” — Lang, Myth, Ritual, etc., 2,197.

The Science of the Vapors Which Produce Prophecy

It appears that the vapors arising from the pit are the source or cause of the action of prophecy for the priests and priestesses but the science as to how this occurred is still being debated.  The early Christian Church Fathers said the purpose of the oracles were for demons which allowed to assist them to spread idolatry; so that the need for a savior would be more evident.

Other researchers had speculated that the vapors and subsequent oracles were the results of some type of narcotic or sulphuric compound such as gas emissions from a geologic chasm in the earth. Some researchers suggest the possibility that it might be ethylene gas, methaneCO2, or H2S.

A new theory is based on oleander, most commonly known as nerium. Apparently, a researcher has put forth erroneous claims that it causes symptoms similar to those of the Pythia and similar to those of epilepsy, the “sacred disease.” In my opinion, this explanation is false because nerium does not produce the same effects and this has been proven by science.

Ingestion of this plant does poison humans producing toxic effects such as nausea, vomiting, excess salivation, abdominal pain, diarrhea, irregular heart rate, drowsiness, tremors or shaking of the muscles, seizures, collapse, and even coma that can lead to death. But the facts are that it does not make you hallucinate and only one human death from oleander/nerium has ever been recorded.

The most commonly accepted explanation is the one made by Plutarch who said that the vapors from the Kerna spring waters that flowed under the temple. In my opinion, Plutarch’s official “public explanation” would have been purposely misleading due to the fact that he was a High Priest who would also know the secret operations, ingredients and even the science of the Delphic Oracle which he would have been under an oath of secrecy not to divulge.

What I have found in my research is that the leaves of the oleander/nerium plant’s are prone to fungus/mold infections.

I believe that the vapors were the result of a process of rotting flesh which contained various organisms such as fungi/molds that we know today have the ability to take over other organisms and also produce hallucinating and delirious effects. An example would be the fungus ergot which contains lysergic acid as well as its precursor, ergotamine – the ingredients for the famous hallucinogenic drug- LSD. I will expand more on this theory in a future article.

It was reported that the Pythia of the Oracle of Delphi was always a “native of Delphi” or of the native land in which the oracles were consulted. I believe they did this because these people would have always been considered as representing the earth or “earthborn” as some of the oldest inhabitants on earth so in their minds, these natives would have DNA coming from the same said lands so they would naturally be closer to the source of our origins which came from within the earth.

This is why we find in almost all ancient secret initiation rituals were conducted inside caves such as one of the most famous in antiquity is the cave of Zeus at Mt. Ida on Crete. The same cave where Epimenides Gnosis would awaken from a 57-year slumber to go to purify Athens to then become the founder of the Orphic (Ophite/Levite) Religion and later Pythagoras would spend three days alone as part of his initiation rites of Knossos to become a leading Gnostic of the Pythagoreans.

In the early stages of the development of their religion, young virgin girls who were never allowed to marry were utilized as oracles. Diodorus explains how the Pythia was always a clad young virgin with great emphasis on the girl’s chastity and purity to be reserved for union with the god Apollo but after one priestess had been seduced by Echecrates the Thessalian, the Delphians made a law that in future no one should be elected who had not attained the age of fifty years. He writes;

“Echecrates the Thessalian, having arrived at the shrine and beheld the virgin who uttered the oracle, became enamoured of her because of her beauty, carried her away and violated her; and that the Delphians because of this deplorable occurrence passed a law that in the future a virgin should no longer prophesy but that an elderly woman of fifty would declare the Oracles and that she would be dressed in the costume of a virgin, as a sort of reminder of the prophetess of olden times.”

One of the most famous Greek writers and philosopher, Plutarch was actually a High Priest of Apollo at Delphi during the late first century and early second century CE. He would have been in charge of overseeing the Cult, the priestesses, interpretations of the prophecies, conduct sacrifices at other festivals of Apollo, collect money for the Temple treasury and would have been an official of the Pythian games.

Plutarch said that the Pythia’s life was shortened through the service of Apollo. Apparently, being a Pythia was a very dangerous job because it was said to be common that the Pythia would go crazy after the ceremony as she often leaped from the tripod in mad convulsions (epileptic seizures?) and then would die soon after.

As the cult developed and the priests became more learned more about the dangers associated with divination, the priestesses were then chosen from poor families in the empire and there were always two Pythias, who took their seat on the tripod alternately, and a third alternate was kept ready in case one of the others went mad or died.

More on the Delphic Oracle Connection to Crete

The Oracle of Delphi may be connected to the more Ancient Cult of Rhea (Mother Earth/Cybelle/Rhea/Gaia/Magna Mater) on Crete which was based on honoring and serving God, nature and the earth. For example, one of the most important rites was the doctrine of purification, which had its roots in Crete.  

Thus the Delphic oracle was essentially Cretan Cult in character which I will prove below.

To the Ancient Cretans (Phoenicians), Greeks and in all countries around the Mediterranean, no religious institution in all of antiquity had obtained such a paramount influence, as the Oracle of Delphi. Delphi was the most famous place for this secret religion of the oracles of Zeus (Jupiter) which could also be found at Boetia, the Siwa Oasis, Dodona, and at Olympia.

In researching the origins of this religion, it appears to have originated on the Holy Islands of Crete and Delos which was said to have been the birthplace of Appollo who was the son of the God Zeus who was also born on Crete and hid in the mountain of the Hellenistic Jews – Mount Ida.

In the Delphi Complete Works of Diodorus Siculus, he had written that Apollo has been called Delian and Lycian and Pythian, and Artemis has been called Ephesian and Cretan and Tauropolian and Persian, although both of them were born in Crete.

Siculus said Apollo was the discoverer of the lyre and of the music which is got from it; that he introduced the knowledge of healing, which is brought about through the faculty of prophecy, whereby it was the practice in ancient times that the sick were healed; and as the discoverer of the bow he taught the people of the land all about the use of the bow, this being the reason why the art of archery is especially cultivated by the Cretans and the bow is called “Cretan.”

He further stated, “To Apollo and Coronis was born Asclepius, who learned from his father many matters which pertain to the healing art, and then went on to discover the art of surgery and the preparations of drugs and the strength to be found in roots, and, speaking generally, he introduced such advances into the healing art that he is honored as if he were its source and founder.”

A paean is a song, poem or hymn which expressed triumph or thanksgiving was sung during the religious ceremonies. In the Mycenaean Linear B tablets found on Crete, the word pa-ja-wo-ne is used as a name for a healer god which was later associated with Apollo and his son Asclepius.

Further connections to Crete can be found in the  Homer’s Iliad in the Hymn to Apollo, in which Apollo himself is introduced conducting a band of Cretans (Phoenicians), who came from the city of Gnosis – Knossus, Krissa (Krisa/CreUSA).  Apollo chose his first priests, whom he selected in their “swift ship” were “Cretans from Minos’ city of Knossos (Gnosis)” who were voyaging to sandy Pylos.

In the form of a dolphin (delphys”, gen. “delphinos), Apollo leapt into the ship and revealed himself to the terrified Cretans, and bade them follow him up to the “place where you will have rich offerings”. The Cretans “danced in time and followed, singing Iē Paiēon, like the paeans of the Cretans in whose breasts the divine Muse has placed “honey-voiced singing”.

These were Apollos Cretan priests of Pytho who we find as the head musician playing the lyre, and the Cretans follow beating drums and singing “paeans such as the Cretans sing to whom the divine muse has given the gift of sweet song.”

Historian, Professor G.L. Huxley had said, “If the hymn to (Delphic) Apollo conveys a historical message, it is above all that there were once Cretan priests at Delphi.”

These songs and dances I believe were for healing Thaletas was able to heal with his songs; Epimenides Gnosis was the magically gifted purifier and lawgiver who saved the Athenians and who after his death the Spartans held as a God. These paean hymns were also associated with the war and dances of the priesthood of the Curetes in Crete in honor of Zeus whom they were assigned as protectors. The Homeric Hymn expressly states that the Cretan priests sang paeans at their advent at Delphi, and were of a distinctly Cretan character.

While these myths seem fantastical to the casual researcher, these facts can also easily be backed by science because we know today that the Holy Island of Crete is known as the birthplace of Western Civilization and the ancient Cretans (Phoenicians) were very skilled in magic, religion, writing, war, music, and dancing which was “how the West was truly won.”

Historical evidence also states that the invention of the “paeonic meter” was consistently attributed to Crete” and its introduction into Greece was assigned to the Cretan Thaletas.” The poems of Archilochus (7th century BC) and ancient scholars mention it such as Alcman (7th century BC) and other poets who wrote in Sparta.

Later in the 5th century BC, Pindar also mentions the paeans and he was said to be especially fond of the Pythian Apollo of Delphi. The ancient Greek poet, Euripides speaks of the Delian women singing the paean in honor of Apollo and swaying in beautiful dance before the doors of the temple.

In the later days of Cicero and Plutarch, the Delphic Oracle began to lose its influence but was still continued to be consulted down to the times of the Roman Emperor Julian, until at last it was altogether banned by Roman Emperor Theodosius I who was the last emperor to rule over both the eastern and the western halves of the Roman Empire.
