“Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf; in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.” – Genesis 49:27
Happy Feast of the Wolf, or should I say to Americans today, Happy Valentine’s Day?
Many of us celebrate the countless holidays that fill our year, but we really don’t truly understand both the significance and history behind some of these days we celebrate. One of these holy-days of the year is Valentine’s Day. In this article, I hope to illuminate your loved filled Valentines of chocolate hearts, stuffed fuzzy dogs, and the sharing of love with some large sprinkles of historical truth from the AS ABOVE and SO BELOW.
The current new American Holiday, Valentine’s Day had only started in about the mid-19th century. However, before the advent of the relatively new American Valentines, this ancient celebration had first originated thousands of years ago from the ancient fertility rites that were held during pagan times from February 13 through 15.
This was when the “Feast of the Wolf,” known as the “Lupercalia Festival” had first originated on the Greek island of Crete, and was later imported into Rome. A time of year, that was also known as the Ides of February. Later during the establishment of the Catholic Church in Rome, this pagan celebration would be changed into a Christian Holiday called the “The Festival of the Purification of the Virgin,” and also “The Procession on the Day of St. Mary or Saint Mary’s Day” (die sanctae Mariae – Saint Bede).
The old festival of the Lupercalia was all about spiritual cleansing when each year they had performed the rites of the Lupercalia, which was mainly based on fertility magic. It was a very ancient celebration for the Cretans and Romans, where a goat and a dog were sacrificed, and salt meal cakes prepared by the Vestal Virgins were burnt.
It was also celebrated with games, and the winner was rewarded with a suit of brazen armour. With these rites, it was said that evil spirits were to be averted and to purify the city.
WHY DO WE CELEBRATE THIS TIME OF YEAR?
IT IS AN AS ABOVE, SO BELOW CELEBRATION!
In the ancient Athenian calendar, the period between mid-January and mid-February was the month of Gamelion, dedicated to the sacred marriage of the Greek God Zeus and Hera. (Wikipedia) In mythology, Zeus represents the planet Jupiter who is also the real king of planets in the AS ABOVE. This festival was honored at this time of year to celebrate Jupiter, which is the only planet visible throughout the night in February 2014.
This is when it is on the “cusp” of the incoming Sign of Pisces, whose ruler happens to also be the King, Jupiter. NASA describes this event as “The bright ‘star’ overhead after the Sun sets in the winter of 2014, it is our closest gas giant, Jupiter and the red supergiant Betelgeuse, 650 times bigger than the Sun, which is one of the shoulders of the ‘Great Hunter’ (Orion Constellation).”
Here is a great video below by Space.com that explains how after the sun sets on these winter days, a bright star shines in the night sky. However, this star is not really a star, but the King of all Planets, Jupiter. The ruddy planet of war, the planet Mars also shows its light this time of year. In addition, Sirius and the constellation of Orion appear to own the winter sky. In this video, you can see how Canis Major is dominated by the Dog Star, Sirius, and is on the footsteps of Orion with its heart called the “red supergiant Betelgeuse.”
This is why during the festival of the Lupercalia, the priests would sacrifice a dog to signify the Dog Star. This time of year also brings about Saturn (Set of Satan) in the early morning hours and one of the morning stars, the planet Venus which blazes a path out of the Eastern sky. Through a telescope, you can clearly see its crescent shape that looks similar to the moon which is the symbol of the Ancient Goddesses who represent Venus such as Isis, Ishtar, and Hecate.
Earlier in the month of February is also significant, because on February 10th, both Jupiter and the moon are shining together and becoming a full moon on Valentine’s Day. This AS ABOVE, SO BELOW event also coincides with the Festival of the Wolf, or Lupercalia, because we all know that wolves howl at full moons. Here is some current information on this wolf howl event from Space.com;
This evening, observers may notice a very bright, silvery “star” shining with a steady glow to the right or lower right of the moon. That’s not a star, however, but in reality, the biggest planet in our solar system: Jupiter. Both moon and planet will keep each other company as they move across the night sky through the course of the night.
The 1st century Greek historian, and biographer, Plutarch mentions during the festival a blood-ritual, “the blood symbolizing the bloodshed and terror of that time” and connects its origin with war. This makes sense since Valentine’s Day is essentially a “red holy-day.”
In “Plutarch’s Lives of Romulus, Lycurgus, Solon and Others,” he writes;
As for the Lupercalia, by the time, it should seem to be a feast of lustration ; for it was celebrated on one of the inauspicious days of the month of February, which name denotes it to be the month of Purifying; and the day was formerly called Februata. But the true meaning of Lupercalia is the Feast of Wolves; and it seems, for that reason, to be very ancient, as received from the Arcadians, who came over with Evander. This is the general opinion. But the term may be derived from Lupa, a she wolf; for we see the Luperci begin their course from the place where they say Romulus was exposed.
However, if we consider the ceremonies, the reason of the name seems hard to guess:
For first, goats are killed; then two noblemen’s sons are introduced and some are to stain their foreheads with a bloody knife, others to wipe off the stain directly, with wool steeped in milk, which they bring for that purpose. When it is wiped off, the young men are to laugh. After this they cut the goat’s skins in pieces, and run about all naked, except their middle, and lash with those thongs all they meet . The young women avoid not the stroke, as they think it assists conception and childbirth. Another thing that propels this feast is, for the Luperci to sacrifice a dog.
The festival of the Lupercalia was held by the Luperci, who were the priests of Pan. The priests would run up and down the city streets naked, having only a girdle of the sacrificial victim’s skins around their waist, and thongs of the same in their hands as they would whip bystanders and especially married women that were alleged to make them prolific.
These rites had come to Rome by way of the Holy Island of Crete. It was on Crete (Also known as Arcadia, Candia and in Latin, Cappadocia), where the priests of Pan had first originated and worshiped on the mountain called Lycaeus. However, it was said that they originally had used to sacrifice humans instead of a goat and dog.
The Cretans and Luperci had also called Lycaeus the Sacred Mountain. Lycaeus is also known by the names of Mount Olympus and more commonly today, as Mount Ida. In ancient Greek Mythology, this was the same mountain where the God, Zeus was born, educated and hidden in a cave.
This story was then assimilated into Rome with a similar mythological event, wherein Rome there is a cave which was believed to have sheltered the founders of Rome, Remus and Romulus.
These festivals were banned for several years and later the restoration of the Rites of the Lupercalia in Rome from Crete is mentioned among the works of Augustus Caesar. They were not abolished until the time of the rule of the Byzantine Emperor, Anastasius in 518 AD.
It was on Crete, where the priesthood known by many names such as the Luperci, Telchines, Curetes, Corbanytes , and the Priesthood of Jupiter Ammon etc. were placed in charge of protecting Zeus (Jupiter or Jove) by his mother Rhea from his vengeful father, Cronus (Saturn). I have written several articles on this ancient priesthood and also the island of Crete, in article such as,Crete: The Lost Island of Atlantis;
Herodotus had said that the Curetes had come to Crete with the Phoenician Prince Cadmus. In Latin Crete is called, “Cappadocia or Cappadocian” who were known as a large tribe of the Magi and are also called fire-kindlers. Herodotus tells us that the name of the Cappadocians was applied to them by the Persians, while the Greeks had simply called them, “Syrians” or “White Syrians.” The Latin name of the Cappadocians were known as “the men of Caphtor”, who we can call today, “the men of Crete.”
HOW WAS THE LUPERCALIA CHANGED TO A CHRISTIAN HOLIDAY?
The pagan festival of the Lupercalia that contained blood and naked men running down the streets whipping people, would later change into a more respectable human Christian Holiday and Feast of the Purification that would officially be celebrated on the day of February 14, 40 days after Epiphany (from the ancient Greek ἐπιφάνεια, epiphaneia, “manifestation, striking appearance”). The Father of English History and Doctor of the Church, Saint Bede had written on these pagan events and heathen rites that were specifically practiced by the people of Sicily;
The procession of Candlemas consigned the Lupercalia to oblivion, and the Ambarvalia only yielded to the rustic pomps of the Rogations. As the peasants of Enna, in Sicily, could not detach themselves from the joyful festivals they always held after harvest in honour of Ceres, the Feast of the Visitation was retarded on their account, and they offered on the altar of Christ the ripe wheat-ears with which they had garlanded their idols.
Lupercalia and its procession had existed before, the feast of our Lady, but that the Christian religion had happily changed this ancient pagan custom of purification. He further states;
The people, priests and ministers, go in procession, with lighted wax tapers in their hands, singing hymns through the principal streets. The tapers, in his tunc, were consecrated for this purpose on Christmas day, and inscribed with the year of our Lord, which, commenced on that day observed on January 6, commemorating the manifestation of Christ to the gentiles in the persons of the Magi.
HAPPY FEAST OF THE WOLF!
It was said that a dog was sacrificed during these rites because they were enemies to the wolf. This is interesting because of the connection to the biblical Tribe of Benjamin, where “In the Blessing of Jacob, Benjamin is referred to as a ravenous wolf.” The tribe of Benjamin were well known as great warriors who played an important role in Israelite history. The name Benjamin is derived from Banu-yamina.The ancient texts found in this city of Mari that date from 18B.C.were written in the Akkadian-language, and refer to the Amorites by the name of the warlike tribe, ‘Banuyamina.’
Both names meaning, “the Son of the right hand” as described when Moses delivered Israel from Pharaoh, he became the right hand of God. In Colossians 1:16 – “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him;” Christ also ascended to heaven and sat down in the place of authority at the right hand of God as written in Peter 3:22 – Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
Genesis 49:27 – Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf – It is plain, Jacob was guided in what he said by a spirit of prophecy, and not by natural affection, else he would have spoken with more tenderness of his beloved son Benjamin, concerning whom he only foretells, that his posterity should be a warlike tribe, strong and daring, and that they should enrich themselves with the spoil of their enemies, that they should be active in the world, and a tribe as much feared by their neighbours as any other; in the morning he shall devour the prey which he seized and divided overnight.
I am deeply humbled and honoured to have been appointed as a special representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry in charge of Russian and American Humanitarian ties.
I hope we can strive for peace, harmony and positive results in the world.
I take this honour very seriously pic.twitter.com/LTuUxsk1aZ
Russian president Vladimir Putin is a friend of Seagal and the two see eye to eye on many issues and both are big martial arts practitioners. After the announcement, the Russian President said that Seagal’s new appointment would serve as a symbol of improving ties between Moscow and Washington.
In the past, Seagal has even called Putin “one of the greatest leaders in the world.”
After receiving his passport, Segal stated, “I will never ever falter. Never!”
Putin is not the only powerful Russian comrade Steven Seagal has befriended. In 2016, he was photographed hanging out with who is called Europe’s last dictator, Belarus’ president – Aleksander Lukashenko.
Just last year, he appeared like a Boss in Kyrgyzstan during the Nomad Games competition dressed like Russian-Mongolian Royalty riding a horse in a full suit of armor.
What most people do not know is that Seagal’s ancestors are actually from Russia.
His grandfather and grandmother were Russian Jewish immigrants and his wife is Mongolian Erdenetuya Batsukh (Mongolian: Батсүхийн Эрдэнэтуяа), better known as “Elle”.
Seagal has agreed with the Kremlin’s views on many issues like when he rejected allegations that Russia meddled in the U.S. 2016 election, telling a British television show it was “stupid” to think so. He embraced Putin’s position on Crimea which helped get him banned from Ukraine in 2014.
I will leave you with a quote from his film, “Code of Honor,” where Seagal plays a special-forces colonel who avenges the fatal drive-by shooting of his wife and child by going after criminals.
Seagal prophetically says in a Southern drawl, “I still love my country, I still love my family, and I am still an honorable man. If I am the bad guy, what does that make you?”
This ancient artifact was buried beneath the Temple of Knossos (Gnosis) where archeologists discovered an ancient alabaster engraved with Egyptian Pharaoh Khian’s upon it in a deposit assigned by Arthur Evans to Middle Minoan III A.9. The remarkable parallels between the Cretan seal designs and the Egyptian scarab-designs were first pointed out by Evans.
Seuserenre Khyan (Khian, Khayan or Khan) was said to be the First king of all Hyksos during the Fifteenth dynasty of Egypt. His birthdate is estimated between 1725BCE and 1605BCE.
It is said that the supremacy of Egyptian power in the Mediterranean had started right around the reign of Khian. An interesting note is that the supremacy of Crete’s power had started approximately the same time period and lasted for 2,000 years later until Rome and the Caesars conquered Greco-Roman Egypt.
Khian is Manetho’s Yannas. His cousin Tubal ruled Spain. His alternate names as “Khayan, Khian, Apachnan, Yannas, Jannis, Iannes, Joannis , Khiyaran, and Khajran.”
Khyan had carried the titles of an Egyptian king, but also the title ruler of the foreign land (heqa-khaset) which was a typical designation of the Hyksos rulers.
He was in control of Thebes just like one of his predecessors and descendants, Rekhmire.
Khyan symbol was a lion. His throne name, Seuserenra, has been found on a grey granite lion which had been built into the wall of a house in Baghdad.
The connections and relations between the Ancient Egyptians and Cretans have been well documented by the historians of yesteryear. I would like to add that I believe the Egyptians were also racially and politically connected to the Cretans through the Thebans.
As I have written before, Crete was called Keftiu and Peoples of the Sea in the Ancient Egyptian texts who were often represented by the Egyptians of the XVIIIth Dynasty. The Greeks in the Old Testament called Crete by the name – Kaftor, or Caphtor. The Latins called it Cappadocia and the Arabs called the island Kerith. This same island has also been known by various names over the course of history like Arcadia, Candia, Minoa, Phoenicia, and Phrygia etc.
Today, in the tomb of Rekhmire at Thebes, we can find proof of these Cretan (Keftiu) connections that are preserved even to this day and most great researchers concur that Keftiu to be synonymous with Crete.
Evidence of their relations can be found in the famous tomb of the Egyptian Vizier Rekhmire at Thebes where we find the Cretans wearing different color kilts bringing tribute to their Egyptian masters. Here is Detail of Keftiu (Cretans) from TT100, Tomb of Rekhmire. (Original photo via Osirisnet)
And here is another image of the Keftiu from TT100, Tomb of Rekhmire. (Original photo via Osirisnet)
Throughout the tomb of Rekhmire, there are various paintings of fine dark red-skinned Cretan men with both dark brown and blonde hair wearing their symbolic kilts of different colors signifying their various ranks. Some of the men also all wear the upturned sandals with straps, indicative of the Israelites along with colorful leggings.
You will also find some of their heads shaven and others with a full head of hair with a carefully designed curl flowing down to their waists which also help signify their rank. The High Priests wore their hair long and the lower ranks of scribes, musicians, masons, and artificers wore their hair short.
Today we see a similar tradition in Christianity with the Orthodox Priests of the East wearing their hair long and the Roman Catholic of the West wear their hair short.
In these images, we see the Cretans bringing the various products of their fine crafts mainly vessels of gold and silver, jugs, drinking cups, amphorae, and rhytons. They also provide the products they have obtained by trade such as ingots and rings of silver, daggers, chains and pieces of lapis lazuli.
The Tribute is piled up at the feet of the scribes who would make records for the Pharaoh and royal court.
In the text titles the “Instructions to the Vizier,” we discover that the Egyptian royal court at Thebes had relations with the Island of Crete (Keiftu) whom they also governed and taxed.
The text notes that the Prince of Punt is coming with his tribute bringing it to the Pharaoh. Coming after the Tribute of Punt we find the “Princes of Crete and the islands of the Mediterranean.”
The chiefs from Crete are “bent and bowing before the might of his majesty.”
The accompanying text reads, “Coming in peace by the Great of Crete, islands that are in the middle of the sea, bending, bowing of the head, because of the power of His Majesty, the King of Lower Egypt, Menkheperre, given life forever, on learning of his strength in all foreign countries, their tribute being on their backs, in order that they may be given the breath of life, desiring to be faithful (literally: to be upon the water) to His Majesty, to ensure that his power protects them. It is the confidant of the King, Mayor of the City, Vizier Rekhmire, who receives all the tribute of all foreign countries, which are brought due to the power of His Majesty.”
His image is completely erased. Facing left, he witnessed the tribute ceremony. The accompanying text states;
“Receiving the attendants of the Southern regions along those of Punt, the Retenu (Syria-Palestine) attendants, the Cretan attendants, along with the loot from all foreign countries foreign, which has been sent through power of His Majesty, the King of Upper and Lower Egypt (Menkheperre) | living forever, by the Prince, Governor, Great among Greats, Dignitary among Friends, Director of the chief Works, efficient confidant of the sovereign, the one causing he who is in the Palace to praise him and to place him at the head of (his) friends, and as top chief of the entire country, (because) he recognized (him) as one who achieved useful things. The example is for him; his venerable status is before him, the Mayor of the City, the Vizier Rekhmire”.
Rekhmire is followed by six officials (called ‘friends’ or ‘companion’s) each carrying in his left hand a plant branch. Above them is the text:
“Friends of the Palace – life, health, strength – coming before the Vizier, reciting prayers. They recite a joyous chant:
The sovereign, the one whose monuments are perfect.
Menkheperre Every office is upheld, regions and cities are established, laws and regulations are enduring for their effects.
The children of Dignitaries are in the office of their fathers May he continue (literally again)… to do the same for millions of years. He is durable and stable on the throne of Horus. May he come to repeat the Sed-festival.
May he guide the living for eternity”.
This text shows that they clear the way for the Vizier who leaves the throne room after the King’s speech. Behind them appears to be a person holding a stick who must have been a guard which has almost completely disappeared.
The letter below was written by Manly P. Hall’s wife, Marie Bauer Hall shortly after his death on August 29, 1990. It is titled, “About the Premature Death of My Husband Manly Palmer Hall.”
In the letter, Halls widow describes three con-artists who may have murdered Manly Hall under dubious circumstances in order to pilfer his estate. Hall had signed over his estate to one of the men just six days before his passing. Hall’s death was sufficiently suspicious for Los Angeles police to leave the case as “open” for several years after. (more…)
The Vatican has refused to accept the recent appointment of a U.S. Lebanese Ambassador in Los Angeles, California because of his affiliations to Freemasonry.
Late last week, Breitbart reported that according to the “Italian news website, Il Messaggero, Pope Francisinformed Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri during his visit to the Vatican last week that Johnny Ibrahim, who currently serves as Lebanon’s general consul in Los Angeles, was an unacceptable candidate for Ambassador to the Holy See, given his affiliation with Freemasonry.

One of the reasons why I report on a Gnostic website about Catholic news and the Pope is because I grew up Catholic. Another important reason is to document the ancient history and Age old battle between the Catholics and the most famous heretics in the history of the world known simply as the “Gnostics.”
“The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven” (Jer. vii. 18.)
Not many people are aware that in Christianity the holiday that we celebrate as Easter which represents the allegorical resurrection of Jesus Christ, had actually been derived from an ancient fertility cult based on the astrological events of the spring equinox. These springtime celebrations had occurred for thousands of years long before Christ had been born or the stories of his allegorical death were told.
It was during the 6th-7th centuries AD when this original pagan holiday was incorporated into Christianity and the Catholic Church. It would officially become a Christian Holiday and would be assigned in the bible of the New Testament to the day of Christ’s resurrection and thereafter was called Easter. (more…)
In my last article, I detailed the Hopi Prophecy of the Red Hat and Red Cloak People that deals with what has been called the third great “shaking” of the world that will be symbolized by a group of people or a tribe of whom the Hopi call the “ red hat and red cloak people.” They are said to either bring us wisdom which we accept or they can destroy us. The Hopi say, “When the iron bird flies, the red-robed people of the east who have lost their land will appear, and the two brothers from across the great ocean will be reunited.”
The leader of these people is known to the Hopi as the long-awaited true Pahana (or Bahana), The Purifier – aka True White Brother will come to Hopi land. His ancestor was of light complexion so he is also known as the Great White Brother. Hopi consider him the Earth keeper and the Supreme God Servant (Bodhisattva, like Jesus in Christianity). (more…)
The number 33 is said to be the Master Number (Master Teacher). The Amon (AMEN) is the numerical equivalent of 1+13+5+14=33. Amen is the God of Truth, and 33 represents Christ consciousness. In the Book of Enoch, Mount Hermon is the place where the Grigori; “Watchers, Sons of God or the Nephilim,” a class of fallen angels descended to Earth, and is at 33 degrees latitude and longitude.
There are many conspiracies surrounding the 33rd parallel of latitude that is 33 degrees north of the Earth’s equatorial plane, and the 33 degrees in Freemasonry. Whether or not there are any concrete facts tying them together in Truth, in my opinion has yet to be determined without a shadow of a reasonable doubt. But there are definitely some strange coincidences and a pattern of both Phoenician (Sidonian/Hebrew/Canaanite) and Masonic endeavors that seem to tie the two together in a world wide web that needs to be explored using reason rather than conspiratorial nonsense.
Some people seem to think it has to deal with some evil Masonic plot and or that it some type of grid energy portal to the Gods, but I have found that this is just a theory propagated by profane people who are not in the know, but think they are by spreading disinformation. (more…)
