DIONYSUS: THE PSYCHOTIC ASPECT OF THE DEMON APOLLO/OSIRIS

Around the first century BC, historians began using the term ‘Osiris-Dionysus’ to commonly refer to dying-and-resurrecting deities, often part-human and born of ‘virgins’ that were worshipped in the years before the emergence of Jesus Christ. In the 5th century BC, Herodotus spoke in particular of the syncretic relationship between Osiris and Dionysus, the thirteenth god of the Greeks. By adding Dionysus to what we have already written about Osiris and Apollo, one can imagine a kind of demonic trinity—a single spirit represented in three manifestations, each of which illustrate a different side of the entity’s makeup. While as Osiris, this spirit is the god of death and the underworld, and as Apollo he is an oracular sun deity and destroyer demon, as Dionysus he is superficially depicted as the inventor of wine, abandon, and revelry, a description that seems inadequate in that it refers only to the basic elements of intoxication and enthusiasm, which was used of the Bacchae (the female participants of the Dionystic mysteries; also known as Maenads and Bacchantes) in their rituals to experience Dionysus, the intoxicating god of unbridled human desire.

Ancient followers of Dionysus believed he was the presence that is otherwise defined as the craving within man that longs to “let itself go” and to “give itself over” to baser earthly desires. What a Christian might resist as the lustful wants of the carnal man, the followers of Dionysus embraced as the incarnate power that would, in the next life, liberate the souls of mankind from the constraints of this present world and from the customs which sought to define respectability through a person’s obedience to moral law. Until that day arrive, the worshippers of Dionysus attempted to bring themselves into union with the god through a ritual casting off of the bonds of sexual denial and primal constraint by seeking to attain a higher state of ecstasy. The uninhibited rituals of ecstasy (Greek for “outside the body”) was believed to bring the followers of Dionysus into a supernatural condition that enabled them to escape the temporary limitations of the body and mind and to achieve a state of enthousiasmos, or, outside the body and “inside the god.” In this sense Dionysus represented a dichotomy within the Greek religion, as the primary maxim of the Greek culture was one of moderation, or, “nothing too extreme.” But Dionysus embodied the absolute extreme in that he sought to inflame the forbidden passions of human desire. Interestingly, and most students of psychology will understand, this gave Dionysus a stronger allure among the Greeks who otherwise tried in so many ways to suppress and control the wild and secret lusts of the human heart. Dionysus resisted every such effort, and, according to myth, visited a terrible madness upon those who tried to deny him free expression. This Dionystic idea of mental disease resulting from the suppression of secret inner desires, especially aberrant sexual desires, was later reflected in the atheistic teachings of Sigmund Freud. Freudianism might therefore be called the grandchild of the cult of Dionysus. Conversely, the person who gave himself over to the will of Dionysus was rewarded with unlimited psychological and physical delights. These mythical systems of mental punishments and physical rewards based on resistance and/or submission to Dionysus, were both symbolically and literally illustrated in the cult rituals of the Bacchae, as the Bacchae women (married and unmarried Greek women had the “right” to participate in the mysteries of Dionysus) migrated in frenzied hillside groups, dressed transvestite in fawn skins and accompanied by screaming, music, dancing, and licentious behavior. When, for instance, a baby animal was too young and lacking in instinct to sense the danger and run away from the revelers, it was picked up and suckled by nursing mothers who participated in the hillside rituals. On the other hand, when older animals sought to escape the marauding Bacchae, they were considered “resistant” to the will of Dionysus and were torn apart and eaten alive as a part of the fevered ritual. Human participants were sometimes subjected to the same orgiastic cruelty, as the rule of the cult was “anything goes,” including beastiality, etc. Later versions of the ritual (Bacchanalia) expanded to include pedophilia and male revelers, and perversions of sexual behavior were often worse between men than they were between men and women. Any creature that dared to resist such perversion of Dionysus was subjected to sparagmos (“torn apart’) and omophagia (“consumed raw”).

In B.C. 410, Euripides wrote of the bloody rituals of the Bacchae in his famous play, The Bacchantes:
the Bacchantes....with hands that bore no weapon of steel, attacked our cattle as they browsed. Then wouldst thou have seen Agave mastering some sleek lowing calf, while others rent the heifers limb from limb. Before thy eyes there would have been hurling of ribs and hoofs this way and that, and strips of flesh, all blood be-dabbled, dripped as they hung from the pine branches. Wild bulls, that glared but now with rage along their horns, found themselves tripped up, dragged down to earth by countless maidens hands. [5]
Euripedes went on to describe how Pentheus, the King of Thebes, was torn apart and eaten alive by his own mother as, according to the play, she fell under the spell of Dionysus.

Tearing apart and eating alive of a sacrificial victim may refer to the earliest history of the cult of Dionysus. An ancient and violent cult ritual existing since the dawn of paganism stipulated that, by eating alive, or by drinking the blood, of an enemy or an animal, a person might somehow capture the essence or “soul-strength” of the victim. The earliest Norwegian huntsmen believed in this idea, and drank the blood of bears in an effort to capture their physical strength. East African Masai warriors also practiced omophagia and sought to gain the strength of the wild by drinking the blood of lions. Human victims were treated in this way by Arabs before Mohammed, and head-hunters of the East Indies practiced omophagia in an effort to capture the essence of their enemies.

Today, omophagia is practiced by certain Voodoo sects as well as by cult Satanists, possibly illustrating an ongoing effort on the part of Satan to distort the Original Revelation of God, as eating human flesh and drinking human blood to “become one” with the devoured is a demonization of the Eucharist or Holy Communion. While the goal of the Satanist is to profane the Holy, sparagmos and omophagia, as practiced by the followers of Dionysus, was neither an attempt at sacrilege or of transubstantiation (as in the Catholic Eucharist), nor of consubstantiation (as in the Lutheran communion), nor yet of a symbolic ordinance (as in evangelical circles), all of which have as a common goal elevating the worshipper into sacramental communion with God. The goal of the Bacchae was the opposite—the frenzied dance; the thunderous song; the licentious behavior; the tearing apart and eating alive; all were efforts on the part of the Bacchae to capture the essence of the god (Dionysus) and to bring him down into incarnated rage within man. The idea was not one of Holy Communion, but of possession by the spirit of Dionysus. When one recalls the horrific rituals of the followers of Dionysus, it’s easy to believe demonic possession actually occurred. A Christian should find this idea plausible, and, it would seem, so did the Hebrews.

The Hebrew people considered Hades (the Greek god of the underworld) to be equal with Hell and/or the Devil, and many ancient writers likewise saw no difference between Hades (in this sense the Devil) and Dionysus. Euripedes echoed this sentiment in the Hecuba, and referred to the followers of Dionysus as the “Bacchants of Hades.” In Syracuse, Dionysus was known as Dionysus Morychos (“the dark one”) a fiendish creature; roughly equivalent to the biblical Satan, who wore goatskins and dwelt in the regions of the underworld. In the scholarly book, Dionysus Myth And Cult, Walter F. Otto connected Dionysus with the prince of the underworld. He wrote:
The similarity and relationship which Dionysus has with the prince of the underworld (and this is revealed by a large number of comparisons) is not only confirmed by an authority of the first rank, but he says the two deities are actually the same. Heraclitus says, “...Hades and Dionysus, for whom they go mad and rage, are one and the same.” [6]
Some Hebrews considered the magic (witchcraft) of the Bacchae to be the best evidence of Dionysus’ Satanic connection, and, while most of the details are no longer available because Dionysus was a mystery god and his rituals were revealed to the initiated only, the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel made an important statement about the “magic bands” (kesatot) of the Bacchae, which, as in the omophagia, were used to capture (magically imprison) the souls of men. We read, “Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against your pillows [kesatot, “magic bands”] wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly” (Ez. 13:20). The kesatot was a magic arm band used in connection with a container called the kiste. Wherever the kiste is inscribed on sarcophagi and on Bacchic scenes, it is depicted as a sacred vessel (a soul prison?) with a snake peering through an open lid. How the magic worked and in what way a soul was imprisoned is still a mystery. Pan, the half-man/half-goat god (later relegated to devildom) is sometimes pictured kicking the lid open and letting the snake (soul?) out. Such loose snakes were then depicted as being enslaved around the limbs, and bound in the hair, of the Bacchae women. Whatever this imagery of Pan, the serpents, the imprisoned souls, and the magic Kesatot and Kiste actually represented, a noteworthy verification of the magical properties represented by them is discussed in the scholarly book Scripture and Other Artifacts by Phillip King and Michael David:
In the closing verses of Ezekiel 13 the prophet turns his attention to magic practices whose details remain obscure. Two key terms are kesatot and mispabot…. The kesatot are “sewn” on the arms, while the mispabot are made “on the head of every height” (?), which has been understood to mean “on the heads of persons of every height” [including those of great height; giants, offspring of the Watchers]…

In modern times archaeological discoveries and texts from Babylonia in particular have shed further light on what might be involved: G. A. Cooke cited Hellenistic figurines from Tell Sandahannah (Mareshah) in Palestine with wire twisted around their arms and ankles… and a magical text from Babylonia that speaks of white and black wool being bound to a person or to someones bed…. J. Herrmann [notes] that both words can be related to Akkadian verbs, kasu and sapabu, which mean respectively “to bind” and “to loose”…. Herrmann also drew attention to texts in which these verbs were used in a specifically magical sense…. This indicates that, whatever the objects were, their function was to act as “binders” and “loosers” in a magical sense, in other words as means of attack and defense in sorcery. [7]
The text in Ezekiel is believed to specifically refer to Dionysian or Bacchanalian magic, which is important in the context of this blog series when combined with a related two-part “binding” and “loosing” question from God in Job 38:31: “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?” The first part of God’s challenge to Job here involves the star cluster Pleides, which in mythology represented the Seven Sisters or teachers of the infant Dionysus, the very priestesses of whom used the kesatot and kiste to magically “bind” those souls that Ezekiel said God would “loose.” The second part of God’s proposition to Job is equally meaningful, “Can you… loose the bands of Orion?” Studies in recent years have made intriguing findings that suggest the Giza Plateau—which according to Zahi Hawass (current Secretary General of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities), was known to ancient Egyptians as the “House of Osiris, Lord of the Underground Tunnels”—was designed to reflect the constellation Orion. The three pyramids of Giza do appear to be laid out in a pattern reflecting the three stars of Orion, which is none other than the heavenly representation of Osiris.

In Greek mythology, the god Orion (Osiris) fell in love with Apollo’s sister, Diana (Artemis). Apollo did not like this arrangement and tricked Diana into shooting an arrow into Orion’s head. When she saw what she had done, Diana placed the dead Osiris among the stars and transformed him into the constellation Orion. Thereafter, Orion was thought to be the “Soul of Osiris.”

Earlier history connects the constellation Orion to the Sumerian legend of Gilgamesh, identified in the Bible as Nimrod—the giant “mighty hunter” before the Lord—a fantastic personality who in later mythology was also called Osiris and Apollo. If Job 38:31 is therefore interpreted according to these ancient astrological and mythological renderings, it would have God asking Job if he could bind the magic bands (kesatot?) of Osiris-Dionysus or loose the bindings (mispabot?) of the Mighty Hunter, the giant Orion/Gilgamesh/Nimrod/Osiris/Apollo. What is potentially more explosive is the deep possible implication from this text that not only can God do this—that is, loose the forces bound at Giza and the constellation Orion—but that, when the correct time comes, He will.

When the star systems Pleides and Orion are compared to Henry Wallace’s letter to Nicholas Roerich in which he said, “Dear Guru, I have been thinking of you holding the casket—the sacred most precious casket. And I have thought of the New Country going forward to meet the seven stars under the sign of the three stars,” the mystery may unfold that Wallace was referring to the Pleides and Orion specifically and to the deity, and earthly location, they represent. This is an excellent possibility, as these star systems—the seven stars of the Pleides and the three stars of Orion—relate to one another in mythology as well as in the Bible. Further, both star systems represent the god encoded in the Great Seal, the central fascination of Wallace and Roosevelt. The Pleides points to Apollo-Dionysus while the Orion system points to the Soul of Osiris in heaven and, on earth, to his speculative tomb location in Giza. If Wallace was referring to these star systems by his cryptic phrase “going forward to meet the seven stars under the sign of the three stars,” Roerich and Wallace may have believed the New Country (America as the New Atlantis) was destined to meet Apollo-Dionysus under the sign of the three stars (on the Giza Plateau), where the most precious casket or ‘coffin’ of Osiris-Apollo-Dionysus held the material remains of the god.

Belief that these gods—or more accurately the single entity represented by these many names—would return to rule the earth one day, is not limited to Masonic mystics or the divine manifestation from the Apostle Paul to the Thessalonians (2 Thessalonians 2:3). The return of these gods “to an active and outward position as rulers of mankind is predicted in the Asclepius,” notes Peter Goodgame, “which is predicted to come after the long period of spiritual decline in Egypt.”

The prophecy Goodgame refers to from the ancient Asclepius says: “Those gods who rule the earth will be restored, and they will be installed in a city at the furthest threshold of Egypt, which will be founded towards the setting sun and to which all human kind will hasten by land and by sea.”

Goodgame notes the physical whereabouts of the “city” in this prophecy is the Giza Plateau, as located by Garth Fowden in his book, The Egyptian Hermes.
“… in answer to Asclepius enquiry where these gods are at the moment, Trismegistus replies (at Ascl. 27): ‘In a very great city, in the mountains of Libya (in monte Libyco)’, by which is meant the edge of the desert plateau to the west of the Nile valley. A subsequent reference (Ascl. 37) to the temple and tomb of Asclepius (Imhotep) in monte Libyae establishes that the allusion at Ascl. 27 is to the ancient and holy Memphite necropolis, which lay on the desert jabal to the west of Memphis itself.”
“The ‘mountains of Libya,’” Goodgame concludes, “is simply a reference to the plateau that rises above the desert on the west bank of the Nile, west of the ancient city of Memphis. In other words, according to this Hermetic prediction, when the Kosmokrators are ‘restored’ they will be ‘installed in a city’ on or near the Giza Plateau.” [8]

Will the ancient super-man Apollo-Osiris rise from a hidden tomb at the Giza Plateau, as Goodgame believes may be the case? If so, the Asclepius could have been more than a pagan prophecy. It may have been a record pointing to where the body of the ‘god’ was stored in times past. Do the occult masters already know this, and is this why an unfinished pyramid adorns the Great Seal of the United States, over which the portentous eye of Apollo-Osiris glares from the ancient past? Has DNA been recovered from Giza that is needed for the return of this god? Will a forbidden ‘science’ that once allowed incarnation and ‘deity’ status to powerful fallen beings be restored in this modern age? Prophecy may suggest exactly this, and for the immediate future.

  1. I am reposting this comment from Toms previous blog in the hope it will generate more attention and solve the Masonic cipher Tom has put forward.
    If Tom or Donna are reading this any help you could provide would be most appreciated, thanks.


    "Ok regarding the cipher Tom has posted, it is based on an old Masonic code where letters are placed on a grid and the corresponding part of the grid the letter is next to is then used in place of the letter in the coded text.
    Can't go into to much detail here but these links should help.

    The thing is it seems Tom is using a key sequence that is different from the ones i have been able to find as in decoding the text i have ended up with this gibberish.

    and

    Without knowing how the letters fit in Toms grid system this mystery will remain unsolved so i turn it over to other like minded souls to see if they can improve on this discovery with the hope someone can solve it."

  2. Why is this being done in the first place? Why would a Christian want to do anything with Masonic codes? This confuses me. I had Masonic family, and I do not want to do anything with something from their cult. Why is this here?

    I mean no disrespect, and have been a reader/viewer of this site for years. I am really confused by this, however.

    Thank you.

  4. The problem with all of Tom Horns thesis is that he is speaking of mythology as though it were historical fact, and he is using these myths to make a case for future prophetic events. Folks, this is insane. A myth, by definition, is something that never happened. Apollo NEVER existed any more than Jupiter or Zeus existed. They only live in the world of make believe. Tom Horn wants all of us to actually believe that all mythological gods are based on actual people and I find that sort of thinking delusional.

  5. I must agree; it is becoming increasingly worrisome that a Christian is "dabbling" with these secret codes and not only that but is preparing to challenge all others to do the same?! I have always respected Tom and his site but I am having trouble understanding that if he is truly a watchman for the Lord why is he dribbling all this out instead of shouting it from the rooftop???

  6. I do believe the "mythological gods" of today are in fact the "fallen entities" of ancient days, however, I don't want to play with their followers secret codes and such. If there is information for the Body of Christ, just put it out there. We don't need any enticements. Having said that Tom, we do appreciate your work and studies on behalf of the Body.

  7. I just think that it behooves all those who abide in Christ to be very careful about chasing ghosts and phantoms. This series that Tom is spoon-feeding one bite at a time is increasingly bizarre. He might as well be trying to sell us on the notion that horror legends like Vampires and Werewolves are in fact based on real creatures. Of course, they are not. They may have some historical basis of fact in other legends, but those legends too are myths. The play The Bacchantes was based on mythical legend, not historical fact, I am just beginning to wonder if Tom has fallen down the rabbit hole. Careful we should be not to follow him. If I am wrong, I will be the first to admit it, but I think Tom needs our prayers.

  8. I'd like to answer the "thomas doubters" of this article:

    Ephesians 2 - Made Alive in Christ
    As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is NOW at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

    UNTIL the kingdom of Lord God Yahweh comes, we who are still living in the aires of Satan and his dominions, must wait and be patient ... but pray for the continuance of protection from the Lord God Yahweh's Hands. John 18:36 tells us His Kingdom is not yet of this world!

    I hope this helps to settle those who doubt the Hebraic Scriptures found in the Tanach, Torah & Bible, as well as in the Book of Enoch, Book of Jubilees, Book of Jaspher.

  9. Tom, you are awakening the senses. I pray for you and your peers in this project that the Lord God Yahweh continues to strengthen, provide wisdom and protection for you and your peers, as you teach and re-teach the dedication of the Lord God Yahweh and His message for us who loves Him and awaits for His return.

    Shalom & God's Blessings to you and your peers.

  10. Listen people....The powers that be have been throwing esoteric symbols in your face everyday, its on your money, your Tv, your music, your movies.
    What do they mean?? Why are they there?
    The enemy of God is all around you.
    They worship Gods you have no knowledge of.
    Tom is trying to show you what it means.
    So stop the criticism.

  11. But are you sure that all these legends are not based in fact ?? I too wish to have all of this out all at once but understand why Tom is doing it this way. What I find even more troubling is that perhaps we do not wish to see the horrific evidence before our eyes. For all legend there is a basis in fact. We are talking demonic and satanic creatures, not God created!! The devil imitating the Creator and man falling in the enemy trap.

  12. Tom, If you are reading this, do you have any comment on the symbolism of Obama's new healthcare logo? I see a lot of symbolism there, but specifically, after reading part 18 of your series, I remember the 3 stars at the top of the logo which would represent Osiris, god of death, if I'm understanding what you've written. Chilling, isn't it?

  14. Tom

    Never get discouraged with silly people. As you've written elsewhere, some are really going to be shocked to learn that the Bible actually describes an end-times confrontation between the ‘mythological gods’ and Christ.

    "The Lord will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth" says Zephaniah 2:11.

    "The Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saith; Behold, I will punish the… gods" (Jer. 46:25).

    Human followers of the pagan deities will also join the conflict, calling upon their "idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood" (Rev. 9:20) to convene their powers against the Christian God, uniting with "unclean spirits like frogs… the spirits of devils working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth… to gather them to the battle of that great day… [to] a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [Megiddo]" (Rev. 16:13-14;16).

    But for those that still don't get it, or for the freemasons that are in here pretending to be "Christians," here are a few pertinent Scripture.

    "But they did not understand this statement, and it was concealed from them so that they would not perceive it; and they were afraid to ask Him about this statement." (Luke 9:45)

    "All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world." (Matthew 13:34-35)

    "This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them." (John 10:6)

    “Why speakest thou unto them in parables?” (Matthew 13:10).

    "He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given." (Matthew 13:11).

    “And He said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand” (Luke 8:10).

    “Therefore speak I to them in parables, because . . . this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they . . . should understand with their heart, and should be converted” (Matthew 13:13,15).

    “My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.”

  17. Thanks Tom for your diligence in research and helping us to understand how past history is relevent for the present.

    This chapter though makes me wonder about Mt 16:19 "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven". These verses have always perplexed me and have heard all sorts of explanations/interpretations from various pastors etc. (some not very helpful)

    Tom, do you have the time to shed any light on this verse as it relates to these end times and therefore aid our preparation as THE 'evil day' approaches?

  18. Lucifer/Satan, and all under his control and command, were formerly, long long ago, sinless and pristine, and willingly under the full authority and rule of the Godhead. While in this "perfect state", they witnessed and partook of the "original Creation" of Genesis 1:1. But they rebelled, and contaminated 1/3 of the existing Creation (Gen 1:2), of which God restored within the Six Days as recorded in the Genesis Creation Account. The "Six Days of Creation" are accurately the "Six Days of Restoration".

    One point to be made from this, is that the dragons, beasts, demons, "aliens" (greys), etc comprise "the fallen gods". But remember, at one time long ago, they were "pristine", "perfect", and even "holy". When they rebelled, they retained their identities, capabilites, and God-created "light" that they were originally created with. But now, in their "fallen" state, they were outside and beyond the continuing infusion, leading of, and overflowing of, the Holy Spirit. They were "cut off", and in being in such a state, could only "lean unto their own understanding", which is one of the factors that led them into this condition in the first place, that is, they "began" to lean unto their own understanding (entertain thoughts contrary to God's thoughts, means, and ways), rather than continue to trust through faith in the Living Word of God, thereby eventually unleashing the "war in the heavens". So through their waning faith, errupted rebellion, and subsequent war, they became forever imprisoned into a confinement of "circular logic" of "self" with no escape, with no "freedom" that they had previously experienced under the pristine rule of the Godhead.

    There is a darkness so dark, as to appear as light.

    Lucifer had at one time been the "mirror reflection" of the Godhead. But he rebelled, and fell. Yet he retained much/most of the Light, Love, and Law of/from the Godhead that he had been originally created with, as well as matured in over the period of time in being in God's holy presence (prior to his rebellion and fall). But in being "cut off", Lucifer's light, love, and law was/is no longer a "mirror reflection" of the Godhead, but a one way transfer into the depths of "self", circular logic (reasoning), darkness, despair, and death - with no "escape" (except through Christ Jesus!).

    Lucifer/Satan can recite the Law of God perfectly, but, in being "cut off", has not the "Spirit" behind nor within the Law so stated. Consequently, the "law" (as well as the light and love), through Lucifer/Satan, leads to the same eternal death that awaits himself.

    The "law" leads to death, but the "Spirit" leads to Life Eternal.

    True "freedom" and "liberty" resides only and wholly within and through the Godhead, specifically, through the saving grace and acceptance of Jesus Christ as one's Savior, Lord, and Friend.

    In regards to Tom's book, whether in the end analysis, he is right or wrong, at least he has dared ask the questions, accumulated the facts and evidences, challenged the establishment's view of things, proposed new theories, and has delved into areas that few dare tread.

    When Moses was "taught in all the wisdom of the Egyptians", that means that Moses, as an heir to the throne of Egypt, was made privy to the ancient "dark arts" of the Egyptian priests. He was also taught in the ancient "hidden history" of Mankind and of Creation. Moses delved into areas that few dared tread ... yet remained true to the one True God!

    So it is entirely possible for Tom to delve into these areas, yet remain true to the One who has called him to unveil the darkness that appears as light.

    But no one is immune from the attacks of/from the enemy, so let us keep Tom and Nita in our prayers, that they may see and abide clearly in God's calling for their lives and ministries.

  19. In response to the individual who asked "Why is Tom dribbling this out..." My understanding is Tom wants to keep it underwraps till Dan Brown comes out with his new book. May be a little concerned for overlapping ideas or plagerism.

    So, Tom is using money to get people to study things Pagan (also charging them from book sales)? And people say he is in the service of Christ? Wouldn't someone in the service of Christ encourage the study of scripture?

    What was it Christ said?.... "freely ye have received, freely give." Anything you have to pay for, I believe, is not even worth reading, because it doesn't come from God, or it would be given away free.

    Tom is trying to show you what it means.
    So stop the criticism."

    Has it ever occurred to you that Satan uses these people and their symbols to make you waste your time studying it? To make you follow rabbit holes? When your attention should be elsewhere?

    Some of us want to be aware of the enemy and his tatctics, and to get a better understanding of the bible and what Jesus and God were trying to tell us in the bible.
    No Offense but if this is to deep for you keep your judgment to yourself and move on.

    The most far-flung blog on the 'net.

    TOM, YOU ROCK, (howard here).

    "LOOKIE' HEAH"- "ALL YOU-ALL", (and yes- sometimes "ALL YOU-ALL", actually means "ALL YOU-ALL")...

    What is the PRIMARY, and SOLELY DESCIBED 'CAUSE OF DEATH' for GOD'S CHILDREN during the TRIBULATION ?????

    "A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE", (which is to say)-stay IGNORANT, get DEAD. Can you wrap your skull around that?

    To any nay-sayers who can't fathom utilizing "MYTH" as FACT.

    when we were all KIDS, the definition of a "CHIMERA", was of a MYTHOLOGICAL ORIGIN.

    TODAY, it is a MEDICAL-TERM.

    FIGURE IT-OUT, (you have less than two decades, to do so).

  26. The last two blog comments are right on track! And what is this talk about "charging for the word of God"??????? Isn't this blog FREE!? Isn't Tom (who is retired I believe and don't need the money anyway) taking his own time, when he could be playing golf, to write well thought-out entries to this series every week just to post them here FREE!? And if he does run a contest where he is giving away 10,000.00 FREE to people in order to get the media focused on something he believes will open the eyes of many, this is somehow CHARGING for the word of God!? Come on, people! Don't fall for the same miserable small-minded spirits that have nothing better to do than to hang out on the internet criticizing everything and everybody that is in the business of helping people and trying to do good.

    "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." John :19-21

  27. I just want to know when I can get my hands on the whole book. It is too hard trying to go back and re-read things on line. I want a book I can underline and leave notes in. Please when is it coming out

    ReplyDelete
  28. At ApollyonRising2012.com there is a countdown clock ticking down that will abruptly end December 21, 2009, so must be the date the book is available.

    And by the way, the Dan Brown book coming out in September is only ONE reason Tom is delaying. I heard him on a radio show also saying a laboratory (I think that is what he meant) is confirming something and he will not have their report until October, then the book will be edited, typeset and sent to the printer.

  30. I think there is a fine line in researching and understanding what satan's schemes are. The Holy Spirit will give us the way in which we should go.

    While reading David Flynn's youtube account, I came across his favorites. I watched one, and it turns out this is a russian psychic telling what he thinks will happen in 2009. This is absolutely forbidden in scripture and made me realize he has gone outside the bounds of God's law. And I hope he reads this as a warning to cease and desist.

    The bible clearly says there is one coming from the abyss who once was, is not, and will come again. Since Osiris is the dying, regenerating god, and the pyramids are aligned with the constellation Orion, we would do well in understanding before it happens so we can snatch others from the fire. We do not need to look at ciphers to determine when, the bible gives us when; but it's for those who have ears to hear. The key is to start living the way God instructs us to, and He might give wisdom and understanding.

    Because I used to be right into all this stuff, but I've since had my eyes opened that it all just rabbit holes, it leads you to nothing but deception. If you want to learn truth, study God's ways, not Satans. I'm here because I want to warn you! That is not judging! That is LOVE!

    Sigh. Tom tries to "warn" about the end times by getting you to study things Pagan, I try to warn you about the end by instead urging you to study the ways of God. You tell me that's a load of crap, to open my eyes, and get a life! Have a little think about that! Again, sigh. It's clear I'm wasting my time.

  35. I'm baffled by the comments from these Christians who believe we should keep ourselves in a cocoon shelter where we are only allowed to study the Bible and pray 24/7. That's not what God intended for us. We should remain vigilant and aware of the dark forces that are out to deceive us and ruin our souls.

    Tom is merely trying to uncover and present the truth about what will be a Great Deception that will lead countless souls astray, including many who currently call themsleves "Christians". Only Satan would want to keep people like Tom and his readers from discovering the truth about this evil.

    As for decoding the cipher, I've given it a try with a couple dozen keyword/phrases plugged in and have been unsuccessful so far in correctly decoding it. Has anyone seen any other clues offered as to what the key might be?

    Tom: Keep up the great work! Can't wait to read the new book when it comes out.

    ReplyDelete
  36. On the cipher, only thing I know is what Tom very briefly mentioned on a radio show about a "national grand challenge" he is going to issue, something that has to be deciphered. Evidently he is not only going to give away $10,000.00 of his own money, but something he called "a priceless item, a historical treasure that has been in the United States since the time of George Washington."

    I think this cipher MAY have something to do with that, but I don't know.

    FEAR is not of the Living God, (stop it).

    We are COMMANDED to "try the prophets"- THERE IS -0- DISCLAIMERS, REGARDING THE ORIGIN OF THE INFORMATION.

    Pay-attention, this work, is to inspire the suspicious amongst the heathen- to go renegade, and convert...

    To all you naysayers,

    I am reading an older book from David Flynn called Cydonia: The secret chronicles of Mars. In it he goes over exactly who the ancient civilizations where and how many actually prayed to these fallen Gods called Zeus, Apollo, Etc. They were even called HEROE'S, ring a bell. Many of you state that Tom is not talking factual about Apollo or Zeus when there is clear evidence that David has uncovered of ancient civilizations that were destroyed by God in several instances. He remarks there where 4 ages called Golden, Silver, Bronze and Iron in which the Giants/Nephilim were in the Bronze age and others in the golden and silver, we must be in the iron. It is the freemasons and the Illuminati who are attempting with all their resources to bring about the new golden age. Do some research before you call Tom a crackpot. He knows wht he is saying and I for one like that he releases a little at a time. Have some patience my fellow Christians.

  42. Anyone see Clash of the Gods on history channel last night? It certainly gave me a little more perspective to some of the topics you have been covering here on this blog. Maybe I have been listening to you and Steve for to long... but, they're seemed to be little myth involved. IMO it read like a recorded event.
