WE COME NOW TO THE UNTOLD STORY OF EARLY CHRISTENDOM. The Roman cult known as Mithras wasn’t always a secret society. No sooner had the religion of Jesus the Christ expanded from Jerusalem into Antioch, Ephesus, Corinth, and the political center of Rome when so too the myth of Mithra, that ancient sun god identified with Sol Invictus, and whose foretold virgin birth was celebrated on the 25th of December, found its own captivated audience. Resistance was everywhere. No matter what neighborhood marketplace or back ally residence the Christians sought recluse to worship in—the Mithrians seemed to meet them there, and in superior numbers. Something had to give. Indeed, it did. And in the centuries to follow, there would be no shortage of human sacrifices.
Throughout this bloody feud, similarities between the two opposing faiths were at times so striking that our spiritual fathers had no choice but to claim Satan’s plagiarized-part in the penmanship of the Mithrians doctrines. Much like Christianity, the god Mithras—known affectionately by his followers as the “Light of the World”—became an intermediary with the one god of the Greco-Roman world, much like Christ with the Father. Even they, the worshipers of Helios, partook in a sacramental meal—not common bread or drink, mind you, but something of the symbolic nature which, when ingested, promoted communion with their deity. To this Justin Martyr confirms:
“And this food is called among us the Eucharist…which the wicked devils have imitated in the mysteries of Mithras, commanding that the same thing be done. Bread and cup of water are made flesh and blood with certain incantations of the one who is being initiated (First Apology).”
All things considered, Satan is long-suffering in his scheming. See, over a millennium before the first advent of Christ, the Prophet Moses not only had an adversary in Pharaoh, but a sparring-partner of another theological nature entirely with Zarathustra. While Moses pointed the children of Israel to YAHWEH, who was not in any means whatsoever to be mistaken as His creation, the man who would come to be known by the Greeks as Zoroaster entrusted his followers with yet another branding of monotheism—namely creation, the sun god. In 1896, Richard Strauss would compose a symphonic poem, Also sprach Zarathustra, Opus 30, based on the writings of Nihilist philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It also involved an epic opening musical number which would ironically be craftily utilized as a central theme in the space-time indoctrination and masterpiece Hollywood film, writer Arthur C. Clarke and director Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Thus wrote Nietzsche in his parable, Thus Spake Zarathustra:
“Thou great star! What would be they happiness if thou hadst not those for whom thou shinest!”
In their book, “Mushrooms, Myth, & Mithras: The Drug Cult that Civilized Europe,” Authors Carl A.P. Ruck, Mark A. Hoffman, and Jose Alfredo Gonzalez Celdran disclose, or perhaps innocently confess, that the three great early antichrists of Christendom would arise from Zoroastrianism influence, which had now developed into the cult of Mithras. Together all three authors wrote:
“Augustus [Caesar] styled himself as the putative son of Apollo and once officiated at a sacramental meal dressed as the Sun with twelve of his colleagues costumed as the signs of the zodiac.” Similarly, “Nero was depicted in a sun-chariot surrounded by golden stars. He also installed an enormous stature of himself in his Golden House as the Sun God.” And finally, “Julian the Apostate (361-363), in his attempt to reverse the Conversion to Christianity and revive the old pagan religions….He had a Mithraeum erected in his place in Constantinople. Like Nero, he saw himself as the incarnation of the god Mithras.”
It was actually during the short reign of Julian the Apostate that “adherents of the briefly restored pan religions lynched George the Arian, bishop of Alexandria (later to become Saint George) when he attempted to build a Christian church above one of their underground sanctuaries. According to the legend, the Mithracists tied him to a camel, tore him to pieces, and then burnt him with the beast (Mushrooms, Myth, & Mithras).”
At any rate, with the cult of Mithras, Satan, whom we shall also refer to here as Apollo, had his first great competing counter-religion in the age of grace. But when the two finally bled together through order of Emperor Constantine, the devil had the best of both worlds. Now his agents saturated the church within every rank and file, and rather than simply persecuting an enemy that seemed to defy logic by thriving on their own martyrdom, Apollo could finally act as the man behind the curtain and pull the strings with the carefree ease of a humbug.
It is believed by many and just as often quoted that the cult of Mithras found the core of its doctrines some four-hundred years before Christ with the Greek philosopher Plato. Unlike the Hebrews, Plato believed the Earth was not established upon the waters (Psalm 24:2), but rather was shaped as a spherical globe. Such a concept was not strange to the nature worshiping occult. Even the esoteric knowledge found within Egypt’s mystery schools might have believed the Earth as such. But at any rate, Plato worshiped creation. This was evident by the eight celestial spheres which he described in great detail as part of Timaeus and The Republic dialogues, and the very model which would later be developed by Ptolemy and Copernicus. Essentially, the astronomical realms surrounding us, which spins around a fixed central axis aptly named the Spindle, was intrinsically associated with and specifically served the transmigration of souls. For Plato, each planet was divine. And furthermore every human soul was given assignment to a particular star, which they would travel to but eventually return from when duties demanded their reincarnation on Earth. Spiritually then, every man was capable of travelling through the realm of the gods, and ultimately to the realm of the Demiurge himself.
The space race, it seems, was born with Plato.
“Mithraism initiated its members through seven stages of transcendence, culminating with an ecstatic vision in which one journeyed into a sacred realm where one experienced the entire pattern of the Universe, an experience that was expressed in the prevalent Roman philosophical system known as Stoicism (Mushrooms, Myth, & Mithras).”
What separated the Eucharist of the Mithream with the Christian church was the item of digestion. Mainly, mushrooms. Humphry Osmond, who in the 1960’s coined the term ‘psychedelic,’ described such a divine and forbidden fruit as the ability “to fathom Hell or soar angelic.” Or as Socrates is quoted, “Our greatest blessings come to us by way of madness, provided madness is given us by way of divine gift.”
The Nicodemites of this thriving occult, many of whom would twiddle their thumbs in weekly mass, perhaps even give the benediction, would then meet in underground cave-like dwellings resembling tombs, all of which were lined with tubs rather than crypts. Many such ceremonial chambers have been discovered across Europe. Even the Vatican was built upon one. In such a place they would eat the body of Mithras, lie down in the water-filled tubs, and very soon ascend through holes in the ceiling to the stars above. If they were especially lucky, astral beings would communicate with them in those spaces, perhaps even give a nickel and dime tour. The fruit of the Copernican deception was already secured.
I had mentioned that the Egyptians, being worshipers of nature, likely saw the Earth as a sphere. Not surprising, since their fallen gods would have revealed it to them as such. In the Egyptian Book of the Dead, mushrooms were also employed. They were aptly labeled “the food of the gods,” or “celestial food,” and in communion terms, “the flesh of the gods.” James Arthur, in his book, “Mushrooms and Mankind,” confirms Mithras ties to the mystery schools of ancient Egypt:
“The religion of Mithra centered around the initiate’s ability to communally, astral-travel. Of course the out-of-body experience was facilitated through the eating of the sacred meal. After consumption, the initiates could traverse the galaxies, witnessing, as the ancient Egyptians, first hand, the reality that the spirit of the human being is not restricted to the physical universe, or the physical body for that matter. This is the true revelation of the immortality of the soul, or at least the realization of such. This concept is so similar to the Egyptian initiatory rites that it is solid evidence some of the hidden traditions of the ancients did migrate into later incarnations of various religious orders……There are a number of hieroglyphic depictions of plants (many of which are psychedelic) on walls and within texts throughout Egypt. This is to be expected, yet this goes undetected or dismissed by most who are studying Egypt and its religious writings … The pillars that are at every temple in Egypt are shaped like giant mushrooms. These are shaped like the Amanita, some are shaped like Psilocybe. Others look like tree fungus and are decorated with pictures of an incredible variety of plants.”
Cicero (106 BC–43 BC), a Roman politician and lawyer, gives such an account in “Dream of Scipio.” It not only describes the prescribed Platonic experience and the Mithrians excursions into the outer spheres, but oddly mirrors NASA’s own testimony to the satellite imagery which God has made otherwise impossible—and forbidden—to see with the naked eye today.
“And I looked on every side I saw other things transcendently glorious and wonderful. There were stars which we never see from here below, and all the stars were vast far beyond what we have ever imagined. The earth itself indeed looked to me so small as to make me ashamed of our Empire, which was a mere point on its surface.”
Shroom or no shroom, we call this practice astral-projection. No action of leaving one’s body behind in the bathtub or bed is complete without an accommodating silver cord, assuring each astral-projector a safe return to his or her physical body, just as an unborn child is bound to an umbilical cord. It is a symbolic gesture also shared by the astronaut. For the disciple of Mithras, his salvation was assured through a personal relationship with the cosmos as perceived through his pineal gland—the third-eye. By mastering spiritual ascension through the seven planetary spheres—the eighth being heaven—a Mithrian could guarantee his souls passage after he died. I guess faith in Jesus Christ, particularly His atoning sacrifice for our sins, is void for such an apostate.
There is an entire cryptozoology catalog of inter-dimensional beings to be discovered in the practice of astral-projection; astral citizens so bizarre in character and description—creatures with fish lips, bulging eyes, and leathery bat-like ears but long as rabbits, for starters—as to make Dr. Seuss either jealous or raving mad for competition. I have read enough firsthand accounts of audacious explorers to know these fallen angels and demons—though they are rarely recognized by the practitioner as such—have agreed to hold hands with them on their cosmic voyage through the clay-like canyons of Mars, even daring to go so far as Neptune’s atmosphere of blueish hydrogen, helium, and methane. Such spiritual enthusiasts worship only nature. And wherever nature is worshiped, as the Egyptians have proven, there Satan and his fallen spirits can and will be found. The entire Helios-model, by which the Earth forms a spherical shape and revolves around Apollo, is an act of worship with the created, not the Creator.
God was not being suggestive when He spoke unto Israel:
“2 If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the Lord thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the Lord thy God, in transgressing his covenant, 3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded; 4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel: 5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.” Deuteronomy 17:2-5
It is somewhat strange, coming to terms with the fact that Israel’s King Josiah, who once sought to restore true worship with God, only dismantled the high places among his own people, where idolatrous priests, burning incense to Baal, sought relationship with the sun and moon, the constellations, and all the starry hosts (2 Kings 23:5). We have seen no such king here in the United States of America willing to take up Josiah’s task. It is indeed perplexing to discern the cult of Mithras out in the open, fully illuminated by the very Light of the World they admit to worshiping, yet now fully glorified on the internet and television. And in case you’re wondering, NASA is my point of contention. They have beguiled us. In the most crafty and serpentine fashion, a malevolent priesthood has set our sights on the high places which King Josiah once so nobly dismantled.
We stand here at the crossroads where the ancient Helios-worshiper meets the priests of Scientism, awaiting the return of Augustus, Nero, or Julian the Apostate—mainly, Apollo or the son of Apollo—the final antichrist. All of society which inhabits the fictitious globe, revealed by way of mushrooms and fallen angelic beings, and the very beast government which defies the Spirit’s own Testimony concerning Himself and His creation by wickedly governing over the globe, already revolve around him—Apollo that is, so that his coming, or his offspring’s coming, will in no way defy what we already perceive as natural.
A swift conclusion to this heliocentric lie has already been promised. Its fate is sealed. We know what will happen to its wide-swath of prophets, priests, and ruling principals, all of whom lord their so-called cosmic knowledge over us simple Bible-believing folk from the lecture halls of academia, just as it has been since the mysteries were fermented from the temples and among the hieroglyphs of Egypt. Unless they should repent, and indeed there is still time, their destruction is bound to the coming antichrist and his confederacy of conspirators. Jeremiah prophesies:
“1 At that time, saith the Lord, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves: 2 And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.” Jeremiah 8:1-2
They choose death rather than life.
