Symbols and their meaning

Symbols and their meaning
Introduction: Occult symbols are fast replacing Christian symbols in our culture. Therefore, we encourage you to use this list to warn others, especially Christian children who intentionally wear and display them because they are popular. Keep in mind that many of these symbols have double or multiple meanings. For example, the pentagram has been used to transmit occult power in all kinds of rituals for centuries, but to Christians the same shape may simply represent a star -- a special part of God's creation. Warning Concerning Symbols In the world of the occult, many symbols are imbued with power by the magician working in conjunction with the demonic spirit world. You may want to read Popular Occultism and study the following Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 10:18-22; 2 Corinthians 6:14; Deuteronomy 4:15-24; Deuteronomy 32:16-19; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 Endnotes: 1.

The Symbolism of Freemasonry: XXI. The Rite of Circumambulation The Rite of Circumambulation. The rite of circumambulation will supply us with another ritualistic symbol, in which we may again trace the identity of the origin of Freemasonry with that of the religious and mystical ceremonies of the ancients. "Circumambulation" is the name given by sacred archaeologists to that religious rite in the ancient initiations which consisted in a formal procession around the altar, or other holy and consecrated object. The prevalence of this rite among the ancients appears to have been universal, and it originally (as I shall have occasion to show) alluded to the apparent course of the sun in the firmament, which is from east to west by the way of the south. In ancient Greece, when the priests were engaged in the rites of sacrifice, they and the people always walked three times around the altar while chanting a sacred hymn or ode. It will be observed that this circumambulation around the altar was accompanied by the singing or chanting of a sacred ode.

The Second Book Creation Myths From Many Cultures by Leon's EFL Planet 2007 from Leon'sEFLPlanet Website The Caucasoid Myths Abrahamic Lineage (Israelites / Ishmaelites) The whole of creation took 6 days. On the sixth day, Elohim (the Gods) said, " Let us make man [humans] in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." So Elohim (the Gods) created man [humans] in their own image, in the image of Elohim created [they] him; male and female created [they] them. It was written that the Gods took dust of the earth, and from that dust created the first man. Leon's Note: Notice that I put "us" and "our" and "their" in bold print. Perhaps it had less to do with Bel, and more to do with the manner in which the Hittites worshipped, by self-mutilations and possibly even human sacrifices. Babylonia/Sumeria Norse (Norway) Hinduism The primal being (Purusha) was sacrificed. Korea

The 72 Names of God | The Kabbalah Centre The ancient Kabbalist Rav Shimon bar Yochai wrote in the Zohar that it was Moses, not God, who parted the Red Sea, allowing the Israelites to narrowly escape Pharaoh and the Egyptian army. In order to accomplish this miracle, Moses combined the power of certainty with a very powerful spiritual technology. He had possession of a formula that literally gave him access to the subatomic realm of nature. The formula Moses used to overcome the laws of nature has been hidden in the Zohar for 2000 years. This formula is called the 72 Names of God. Though this formula is encoded in the literal Biblical story of the parting of the Red Sea, no rabbi, scholar, or priest was aware of the secret. To learn how to wield the power of the 72 Names, together with the purposes of which they can be used, we recommend reading The 72 Names of God: Technology of the Soul. The 72 Names are each 3-letter sequences that act like an index to specific, spiritual frequencies.

JACOB'S LADDER "And Jacob dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the LORD stood above it..." Genesis 28:12-13a There is much to be said about this ancient passage of scripture. Within it are the keys to many esoteric teachings, and mysteries which have been hidden ages past, that are now being revealed. In a previous writing we dealt with "Jacob's Journey," the journey of all humanity to meet God in the 7 Feasts or Experiences; consummating with Tabernacles, Fullness. Jacob has left from Beersheba, the well of sevens; a place where you walk in full awareness of the 7 Spirits of God. The Mystery Of Numbers In order to get a fuller understanding of "Jacob's Ladder," we must understand the mystery of numbers. As in classical algebra or geometry, the Spirit uses symbols to conceal messages. "Here is wisdom. The Number 70 {Jacob's Mystical 72 Step Ladder} The Number 72

Greek diacritics Greek orthography has used a variety of diacritics starting in the Hellenistic period. The complex polytonic orthography notates Ancient Greek phonology. The simple monotonic orthography, introduced in 1982, corresponds to Modern Greek phonology, and requires only two diacritics. Polytonic orthography (πολύς "much", "many", τόνος "accent") is the standard system for Ancient Greek. The acute accent ( ´ ), the grave accent ( ` ), and the circumflex ( ͂ ) indicate different kinds of pitch accent. The rough breathing ( ῾ ) indicates the presence of an /h/ sound before a letter, while the smooth breathing ( ᾿ ) indicates the absence of /h/. History[edit] The Lord's Prayer in a 4th-century uncial manuscript Codex Sinaiticus, before the adoption of minuscule polytonic. The original Greek alphabet did not have any diacritics. Introduction of breathings[edit] An example of polytonic text from a Byzantine manuscript, of 1020 AD, displaying the beginning of the Gospel of Luke (1:3-6) Description[edit]

The Seven Liberal Arts The expression , chiefly used during the Middle Ages , does not mean arts as we understand the word at this present day, but those branches of knowledge which were taught in the schools of that time. They are called liberal ( Latin , free), because they serve the purpose of training the free man , in contrast with the , which are pursued for economic purposes; their aim is to prepare the student not for gaining a livelihood, but for the pursuit of science in the strict sense of the term, i.e. the combination of philosophy and theology known as scholasticism . They are seven in number and may be arranged in two groups, the first embracing grammar, rhetoric, and dialectic , in other words, the sciences of language, of oratory , and of logic , better known as the , or language studies; the second group comprises arithmetic, geometry, astronomy , and music, i.e. the mathematico-physical disciplines , known as the , or .

Forgotten Books of Eden: Second Book of Adam and Eve WHEN Luluwa heard Cain's words, she wept and went to call her father and mother, and told them how that Cain had killed his brother Abel. 2 Then they all cried aloud and lifted up their voices, and slapped their faces, and threw dust upon their heads, and rent asunder their garments, and went out and came to the place where Abel was killed. 3 And they found him lying on the earth, killed, and beasts around him; while they wept and cried because of this just one. 4 And Adam carried him, his tears streaming down his face; and went to the Cave of Treasures, where he laid him, and wound him up with sweet spices and myrrh. 5 And Adam and Eve continued by the burial of him in great grief a hundred and forty days. 6 As for Cain, when the mourning for his brother was ended, he took his sister Luluwa and married her, without leave from his father and mother; for they could not keep him from her, by reason of their heavy heart. 8 And in that place were many fruit trees and forest trees.

The Crown of Life: The Path of Yoga in Theory and Practice continued ... The Crown of Life CHAPTER TWOcontinued ... He who knows prana, knows the Vedas. - SANTIS Before dealing with pranayam, it is necessary to know what the pranas (the vital airs) are, their classification and functions, etc., in the body and how they act and the things allied with them. He who conquers the mind, conquers the world. The motor power behind the mind-stuff, as said already, is that of prana and hence the regulation and control of prana, the primal force in the Universe, is of prime importance and far above other psycho-physical disciplines. (a) Prana is concerned with the respiratory system. Besides these primary pranas, there are five other kinds of lesser importance, namely: (i) Naga which helps belching or eructation. These vital airs pervade the skin, bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and the like. Plexuses and chakras Wherever several nerves, arteries or veins interlace each other, that point or center is called a plexus. Pranayam: Elementary exercises Pranic discipline

Tarot - Astrowiki-en Introduction Although popularly known as the source of modern playing cards, and also having a reputation for its use among gypsies as a means of fortune telling, the tarot images known as the Rider-Waite deck are revered by occultists as being a picture book of wisdom relaying the spiritual and psychological principles of consciousness [1]. These images were reportedly designed by a group of spiritual initiates circa 1200 AD in the city of Fez, Morocco,[2] based on spiritual teachings gleaned from Egypt, the Biblical Old and New Testaments, India, Europe and China, in order to keep the truths of spiritual thought intact for future world cultures, in a form which could be understood by anyone in the world regardless of their native language. Qabalistic Tree Of Life The 78 images or keys of tarot are divided into a Major and Minor Arcana, the word arcana meaning secret or esoteric. The Major Arcana The Fool The Magician The High Priestess‎ The Empresss The Emperor‎ The Hierophant‎ The Lovers‎

The Eastern Star The Eastern Star They Say, We Have Seen His Star in the East And Are Come to Worship Him! Evangelist Deloris Johnson In addressing the issue on the Order of the Eastern Star, or it's parent organization, The Masonic Lodge, many well intentioned people have joined the ranks of these Orders on the presupposition that they are based on the belief in the true and living God. The message then, is not one of condemnation, but rather an appeal to those who love God, and are dedicated to His worship alone. The Order of the Eastern Star takes it's name and general motto from Matthew 2:2b, "For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." (1) "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, where is he that is born King of the Jews? The wise men came from the east to Jerusalem in search for this new born King, in order to worship him. The East is one of the four cardinal points. ". .

Internet History Sourcebooks 1. This project is both very large and fairly old in Internet terms. At the time it was instigated (1996), it was not clear that web sites [and the documents made available there] would often turn out to be transient. 2. 3. The Internet Medieval Sourcebook is organized as three main index pages, with a number of supplementary documents. INTRODUCTION: MEDIEVAL SOURCES ON THE INTERNET Historians teaching medieval history surveys almost always want to combine a textbook, a sourcebook, and additional readings. GOAL: The goal here then has been to construct an Internet Medieval Sourcebook from available public domain and copy-permitted texts. DOCUMENT SIZE: The size of documents for teaching purposes is an issue. TEXTS Since these texts come from a variety of printed materials, translators, and sources, they will vary in quality. USAGE: This Sourcebook is specifically designed for teachers to use in teaching. By pointing students to this web site. Patrick J. © This text is copyright.
